great many graves dotting the hill

hardly grown green over them, and
which we are going to decorate on the

Do not send the sobbing widows and

pretty soon. Be a little tender with
us for a while. Wo have not got quite
to that point yet. I speak in all
friendliness. I never have attempted
to excite before, about this question,
any unkind reeliug. 1 tell you, men
of the North, that this seems a small
matter, but so was tlie first irun fired
at Sumpter. It did do harm, but it

Mr. Kden Did the gentleman make
any complaint against the appoint
ment of liongstrett to an important
olhce In Gen. Grant?
Mr. Butler I made no objection,
and I do not know that there was
any one-armed Union soldier who was
seeking for the same office at the same
time, f Jen. Ixmgsireet had repented
for more than two months. (Sneering
laughter on the Democratic side.)
Mr. r.den His repentance, I sup
pose, consisted m joining your party
Mr. Butler l'ardou me, 1 never
knew that he had joined our party. 1
do not care whether ho did or not.
He not only repented, but he gave
works meet tor his repentance.
Mr. Owner The immediate busi
ness lefore the House is the election
of a Door keeper to fulql the respon
sible duties conuccted with that ofuee.
Our experience in tho past has not
been fortunate, and we ore litre to
endeavor to repair past misfortuiit-s.
The gentleman from Massachusetts
would have us to elect a person of
his own chosing. I will vote for a
bill to restore him (Gen. Shields) to
his place on the retired list of the
armv. which will give him $3,000 a
year during his life. I will go further
and vote to pav him for the services
which he would have rendered in that
Congress from which he was turned
but, though elected, by a majority of
thousands, by the ltepnbliean party,
headed by the gentleman from .Mas
sachusvtts TApplause on the floor
and galleries. 1 I wish to say to the
gentleman that I fear the Greeks
bearing gifts riaughterl, and I do not
propose as a member of the majority,
that he shall dictate who shall be our
officers. When in the past history of
the gentleman has he honored a sol
dier when that soldier was a Demo
crat? Did not you and those that fol
lowed you drag McCleJian m dis
grace and shame from the army?
Did vou not cast Hancock into exile?
Where, all along the whole line of
glorious men who suffered for the
Union cause, have you ever honored
them, if they were Democrats':
Never, in sll vour history, and never
would you if youdid not conceive that
at this hour you could drive & wedge
into the Democratic party and rend it
in pieces. We are neither to le con
trolled nor frightened, and when the
gentleman appeals to me and to oth
em from Pennsylvania, I tell him
that the red flag which he attempts
to Haunt in our eves lias no terror tor
me or for the iople which 1 repre
sent. Among them, the war is ended
To them. pece has come, andnoagi
tation, such as the gentleman from
Massachusetts would give rise to to
day, could drive them from their in
stincts. We are iiet-o to elect a proper
jK-rson for Door-keeper. We "! not
eject one who is utterly, totally disa
bled to perform its duties, and we will
elect one of our party who Is capable,
I know; honest, as I believe, and who
will be faithful to the Idgb. trust
which this House shall impose upon
him, uninnuenetd by the threats f
the gentleman from Massachusetts.
Mr. Butler sent to tlie Clerk's desk
and had read a copy of Gen. Shields'
petition for an increase of his pension.

Clarksville Cfironiclc: Judging from
the small number of plant beds burned
this spring, there will not be one
tenth as much tobacco planted in our
countv as there was last year. Our
farmers are very much discouraged by
the low price realized for the last
j-ear's crop. We have it from good
authority that tiie price paid for last
season's crop of tobacco up to this
time, averages only three and a half
cents per pound. It is a fact well
known to our farmers that such i
price will cot pay for the raising of it
that it is not twenty-five cents a day
for the lalior expended on it, to say
nothing of the injury done to the land.
We hoiio the present low prices will
induce our farmers to turn their atten
tion to other crops, and not rely so
nearly exclusively on tobacco.

We have had report for muo veeks
that the growing wheat in many por
tions of Lincoln county was being
damaged by some kind of insect which
resembles in appearance the louse.
Last Monday we made particular in
quiry qf several Intelligent and obser
ving farmers a. to the truth of the re
port," and learn that" the statement is
true, and tho damage of the wheat
crop from this cause, unless checked
by tie influence qf the weather n
some way, will be very serious. One
gentleman, Monday, showed us some
specimen stalks that were literally
covered with the insect. Wherever
attacked, the leaves turn yellow and
commence to die. This is something
new to our wheat growers and they
no not un-aersiaud iu iau mm
the insect! Will' develop into a fly. -Great
damage to the crop all over the

New York Herald.
London, April ", The Eastern
question is trembling in the balance.
England, while praying and hoping
for peace, Is hopelessly and steadily
drifting into war. A parallel to tbe
troubled state of affairshere is only to
bo found In the uncontrollable war
fever which swept over the Northern
States immediately following the fir
ing upon Fort Sumpter. England,
which has been free from general war
since the stormy days of the Crimea, is
now in the hands or a new generation
of men, desirous to emulate the glory
of their ancestors.
Tbe peace feeling grows weaker In
all the upper circle of society, and
the tension of war grows stronger
rrom day to day. Court circles are
undeniably warlike. Among military
men the argument most in vogue in
that it is easier to whip Russia while
she is still weakened after the recent
war than when she has bad time to
recover from its effects.
Lord Beacon afield is anxious to re
deem the dingrace of the disastrous
and humiliating diplomacy of lost
year, and tlie working classes rejoice
at the renewed activity in the dock
yards and arsenals.
Bankers and merchants see large
profits accruing to them from the new
loans and new contract for supplies.
AU these interests are combined to
press on lo war, which is now resisted
oy Mr. Gladstone, Bright and a few
brave and gifted men who only hold
a relation to the mass of the people
which the Hartford Convention held
to the American people at 1812.
Should Beaconstield now dissolve
Parliament, the Conservatives would
win hy increased majorities. A dis
tingui.htd English statesman said to a
Herald correspondent that the Anglo
Saxons are naturally bloodthirsty and
fond of war. He feared that England
was now on Ihe scent and.could not
be held in. I'eace can only come
from the powerful influence of Ger
many. Count Andrassy is anxiously
striving to revive the Congress. In
the mean time the friends of peace
will make gallant and strenuous ef
forts. Germany is using her utmost
efforts iu favor of a general accommo
dation. Russia holds a defiant atti
tude, and argues that if it should cost
a hundred thousand men to hold San
Stefano, she would not leave until af
ter a general genuine peace.
The Vienna correspondent of the
Herald telegraphs that a scheme lias
been proposed for a settlement of the
difficulty, whose origin is attributed
to the Archduke Albrecht of Austria,
Count Andrassy told General Igna
tieft at this recent conference that tbe
security of the Austrian Empire was
incompatible with the treaty of San
Stefano. There is no room, in the un
stable condition of Austro-llungarian
equilibrium, for a single additional
Slav. Austria, therefore, submits the
following compromise, which is now
considered in London as the first re
cognition of the integrity of the Otto
1. Russia to seek territorial compen
sation in Asia Minor
2. To divide European Turkey into
three parts namely, Northern, Wes
tern and Southern. Each part is to
br granted autonomy and administra
tive reforms. Tlie northern section of
Bulgaria, north of the Balkans, to be
under the patronage of Russia. The
Western section of Bosnia, Herzego
vania ond Albania, under the patron
age of Austria. The Southern sec
tion, including Theasaly, Epirus and
Roumania, under (ireek autonomy
and under the special patronage of
England. All the European powers
to guarantee this autonomy.
It is believed that each division pars
ing into its own natural ethnological
and religious sphere would eradicate
the cause of war, being entirely sev
ered from the Ottomans.
3. The ttatua quo antc-hcVum to
be maintained on tbe questions of the
straits and the Danube. Jt is thought
in London to-night that Ixml Sahs
bury will adhere to this scheme with
tlie reservation that if Russia annexes
territory in Atria'Minor there shall be
a neutral zone between the Russian
and English frontiers iu Asia under
the guarantee of the Bowers.
Should this scheme meet England
approval, Count Andrassy will again
endeavor to renew the Conference, i
the event of tho Conference being

The Change! Situation in Europe.
England's hrn attitude has wrought
a remarKabie change in anairs in .Eu
rope, and now, instead of Great Brit
ainisolated hunting around the
world for au ally, we see Russia wait
ing in all ante-rooms, hat in hand, ap
pealing for help. For all the brillinn
ty oi: i-tenon fni itulian ojpiomaey,
and the splendid audacity of Bis
marck, and the unquestionable ability
of Russian diplomatists, it must at
last be confessed that England presses
her ends with more unswerving reso
lution and practical ludrrment and
skill thaii' any tether hatiori on earth.
There has never leen a period sluce
. .4v Af un- x;;i..'.i..v.-,
Eunieau affairs when she was not
entirely master of the situation, if we
except the imbecile and pusillanimous
reign of Charles IL It is true that,
there have been periods when her suo
ftm wan dQubtfuIj but sbe baa always
managed to carry her point. In IS71,
when this present question was brew
ing, she was under a cloud for a time.
One of those periods occurred In which
she had to bide her time, but she has
not had long to wait. We find her
now almost completely master of the
situation.- Three or four weeks ago
she seemed isolated. There was
scarcely a prospect of an ally. One
clear, boldly spoken word a policy
clearly and emphatically laid down,
and the whole aspect of affairs is
changed on the instant. Austria re
sponds, and turns a deaf ear to Rus
sia. France mutters low a faint in
dication, but still a sign of possibili
ties, and even Germany, with evident
reluctance, intimates a remote Inten
tion to stand by England. England
has accomplished all that was neccs
6ary. She has made it absolutely cer
tain that Russia must back down and
yield imortant parts of the treaty oj
San stepnano, and cmeny yield the
point of separate treating with Tur
key, niakinjz tbe new basis an Euro
pean matter. Either this must be
done or Russia will have to meet a co
alition composed of England and Aus
tria certainly Italy, it is likely
France very probably Germany per
haps, though not likely. It must be
confessed that Disraeli's statesman
ship is able to retrieve errors, if it can
not avoid them. It was a blunder to
have left Russia to settle the question
a year ago. It is the highest states
manship to retrieve the blunder with
one lold, happy stroke, and it seems
that it is done, and that England is
again the shaper of continental poli
tics, the maker of coalitions.
C. P. Atmore, General Passenger
