Evidences of dishonesty multiplied,
(rillette was compelled to ask the author

p s- tl to have been done in or?ler that
ha might not share the responsibility
if wide-n'aching fraud. A board ol
engineer officers?from Oapt. Garter's
own corps-composed of Gol. Gillespie,
Maj. Adams, and Capt. Black, unani?
mously agreed that a court-martial
must be huid. Among the records ol
the ottos was a box marked ' 'Personal
and Private." It was op?med. It con?
tained no personal papers, except half
a dosen letters fnuu Carter's sister.
These were not read, but with them
were found strictly official papers,
which should have been in the flies;
also hank books?some showing deposits
as high as |f 0,000 at a time ; copies of
letters received and sent by Carter and
?howing his connection with the At?

certificate of stock in that corporation

was given the contract for all the

The court-martial met. It was pre?
sided over by Gen. E. S. Otis, now m
command in the Philippines. There
were fifteen offlOMI of the court, ?select?
ed from all branches of the service,
every one of whom was personally ac
i|uiinted with Capt. Carter, and, if
anything, prejudiced in his favor. The
accused offioaf had six lawyers defend?
ing him. Among other things, he
pleaded the statute of limitations. Al?
though this plea wan regarded as an ad
mlssion of guilt, it was sustained by
the court, aud only occurrences happen?
ing within two years were considered.
Thftse were so numerous, however, that
there was no trouble in reachiog a ver?

A Striking 3rowtli
The New Yorfc Journal of Commerce
finds that in August of last year the
South had 8,670,000 cotton spiudles,
agalnt 1,735,000 in August, lfefjo.a gain
of 1,945,000 spindles in eight years, or
over 100 per cent. Fifty new mills are
now under construction or in prepara?
tion, involving an outlay of $H,">00,000
and an addition of Too,000 new spindles.
Beside? these, ?i'.t concerns aro enlarg?
ing their present facilities so as to add
100,000 new spindles. Thus in five
months $17.0OO,C00 of capital and 1,100,
000 new spindles are to be added to the
productive capacity of the South. South
Carolina leads in this expansion with
175,000 new spindles, and North Caro?
lina follows next with 186,000, The
mills mentioned produce cotton piece
goods or yarns. Bat hosiery and knitt?
ing mills also are being started, and a
silk mill ia reported.
A Clothing Combine.
One of the largest industrial combi?
nations of recent years is being formed
by Baltimore enterprise. Options have
been secured on 150 large clothing
manufacturing establishment? through?
out the country by Mr. Samuel Rosen
thai, Jr., of Baltimore, who for the
past four months has been actively en?
gaged in forming a gigantio clothing
combine to be incorporated under the
laws of New Jersey and to be known as
the American Clothing Manufacturing
The company, it is understood, will
have a capital stock of $100,000 ,000.
The literature of the sixty vears of
the reign of George III, ?aya the Port?
land Oregonian, including as it did
Hume, Burke .Gibbon, Borna, Oowpor,
Sheridan, Wordaworth, Byron, 8cott,
Keats, Shelley, Campbell, Coleridge,
Lamb, Moore, was of mora original
quality than that of the Victorian age,
but if we concede the first plaoe in
literary exdlence and originality to
the age of Elizabeth and ooucede the
?eoond place to the age of George III
we are safe to claim for the reign of
Victoria the third place in the quality
and aplendor it literature.
