Tbe Herald, of Baltimore^ in nn ani
ele which ia reproduced in .Tin: Vllt
SIMIAN this murmur;, utters a note of
alarm to tbo business interests of that
city iu couuectiou with the announce
luetit that tho Southern Hallway Coin
pony is perfecting urrangeiuents to
euter Norfolk and use this port as its
deep water terminus. The herald wall
puts it that Norfolk is ambitious for
commercial greatness, and it may rest
assured that Norfolk will achieve, that
which she is au.b tious to possess.
She recognizes that the selection of
bor port as the deep water torunnus of
so oxteusivo u system of railroads as
tho Southern, is pregnant with proiui.se
of futuro commercial greatness. The
groat bulk of tho trclliu of tho South
and Southwest is uow controlled by the
railroads which centre ut this port,and
with so rich, 60 prolitlc a couutry to
draw from? a couutry whoso develop?
ment proruib?s to be unequalled in the
history of this country. Can there bo
any doubt as to the future commercial
importance ami grentuuhs oi tbo bar
bora surrounding Norfolk, including

Well may the liorald ask the Haiti
morean to consult tho map, aud the
more ho consults it tbo more ho will
bo impressed with tho lact that tho
Southern railroad was right aud
in coming to Norfolk; that otborgreut
lines will follow her example, and that

The Atlanta Journal regrets to eoo
that, whilo the farmers an- still in tbe
majority, their proportionale number
is Mill growing loss. It regrets, also,
the reckless rush ol young tuen from
their paternal farms to the cities, aud
adds that the fuct is odo of the most
deplorable tendencies of the times.
It expresses the hope that tho mis?
take will be checked by the common
sense of tho rising generation, nod
there are many who fully ugrcu with
it. It is a great inistuke for young
men to leave tho paternal farm to come
to the oity under tho belief tbat their
eondition will be greatly bonoflted.
As our contemporary remarks, there
is no nobler occupation than farming,
certainly there is none in which a
may l?o moro independent or useful.
