The friends of the Mississippi levees

Southern members of congress are al
most unanimous In their support of these
measures, and they seem determined

as early day as possible.
The railroad lobby was at Springfield

Tna leading Southern papers are still
discussing PoatmaaUt General Key 'a
last letter. The Mobile Register, closing
a lengthy review ol it, says : "The Dem
ocratic party now stand ready to ap
prove and applaud all good actions of

deep and Impassible gulf lies between its
principles ot Democracy and Republican

tralized government ; the former to . tho
freest local self-gorcrnmeut consistent
with Hie unity ot the Republic.' One
force drives iu one direction, tho other
In directly an opposite direction. Mr.
Key can no more bring them together
than lie can make water and oil unite.
He Is mistaken if he imagines that in
a few short months he can reunite and
make harmonious the antagonistic tenets
of Hamilton and Jefferson." The Mont
gomery Advertiser, with an eve fixed on
the days of reconstruction, says: "The
Democracy lias stood between the South
and all the odious legislation which
UayeS, when he was in congress, Thad
Stevens, Johu Sherman, Garfield and
Banks aided to nut upon the statue

at liberty to do so,but the great bulk or

favor the equality ot the states and the

It is estimated that from one-half to
two-thirds ot the sheep in the state have
nerished from starvation. The loss ot
cattle is not so large, as they were taken
to the mountains in time. Dr. Swain,
of Watsonville, started for the moun
tains from Fresno on the 21st, with over
three thousand sheep, and the lifeless ear
c asses of over twenty-five huudred ot
them now mark the route taken. The
doctor savs that unclaimed dead and dy
inir sheep cover the plains, and hundreds
of sheep and lambs tall into line behind
the wagon ot the traveler and follow, in
the nope of getting a morsel ot nay.
One man from the ban Joaquin
valley lost every sheep he had
eleven thousand during a storm, and
went home a pennllesv man. Another, an
Italian, thought ne could save tue cost
offerrvinir his sheep across the Tuo
lumne river by swimming them, and
eiirht hundred were drowned in the at
tempt. Another man, east oi v isana,
ueg pairing of ever getting his sheep to
where there was food, turned twelve
thousand out to starve. It be undertook
to drive them to the mountains many of
them must die ot starvation before reach
ing there, because there is no food on
tne way, and then wnen me mountains
are reached all the good food is already
taken up by men who hold possession.

The State ot Rouinanla, now iu arms

coual in area to our State ot Tennessee,
and has a population of 4,500,000. It Is a
limited monarchy and governed by a
prince, and a legislative body consisting
of a senate and a chamber of deputies.
It was formed in 1850 by a union of the
two principalities of Moldavia ond Wal-
lachia under Alexander Jonn l, wno nad

was forced to abdicate In low

Is virtually independent. The people

(From an interview Published in the Sew
In reference to his Southern policy I
think it is one which is more liable to
insure to the benefit of the Democrats
than to the Republicans, for he seems to
be pursuing the same cour-e which not
only tne Democrats out ail nonest and
patriotic citizens have for a long
time favored. Of course, it is not
what such men as Blaine and
Butler will delight over, and, there
fore, I am not surprised that they
ana tueir una are liable to una rauit
with him. Hayes' policy Is entirely
and pleasingly different from that ot
Grant's, and if the latter's had been con
tinued it would have wrought incalcu
lable injury to the country. The policy
ot Haves, you will notice, is a policy fa
vored by Schurz, and is In perfect accord
witu tne utterances oi mat gentleman
before his identification with the cabinet.
on the whole, 1 think Mr. Hayes has
done very well thus far. but, in view ol
the outlook ahead, I fear that he cannot
master the multitude of difficulties that
be la likely to encounter.
