There are loo many little

Virginia has eleven cotton factories,
and Georgia has fifty, all paying a
of from eight to twenty per cent.
It is only a question of a very short time
when the cotton industry will be confined
wholly to the South. This, will have
the effect of liberating several hundred
thousand slaves now in bondage of the
Northern manufactories, after which they
will vote as they please.
The New York Herald, (Rep.) says of
Carlisle being elected Speaker: It
means that old fogies of the party men
afraid of their principles have lost their
hold, and the young men of the party,
men to whom politics means something
more than mere office-getting, have come
to the front. If the Democratic leaders
have, energy and intelligence, Carlisle's
election means a sweeping Democratic
victory next year. For the first time in
many years there is before the party a
fair prospect of success in popular favor,
which they huve long been seeking by
many devious and false roads. At last.
they are on the right track. The result

an important part of. the work done at the
Harvard Observatory. A region of the,
neayens 15 degrees squares is photographed
at a single exposure, and eighteen of
these pictures may be taken on a single
plate. A map is thus made of a section
of the steller vault 90 degrees long by 45
wide, showing stars down to the fifth and
sixth magnitudes. Smaller stare, down
to the eighth magnitude, are shown in
photographs of smaller areas. The magnitudes
indicated by the photographs do
not always correspond to those recorded
as the determinations of ej'e observations.
This is due to the effects of different col.

may appear very brilliant to the eye,

They do not hear my voice. Their

famine of many winters, and her nose is
only the ruin of it's former greatness.
Her moccasins are worn out, and the soldier

She also is drunk. She is not as drunk

and we willl shout our war-cry once more,
