It is probable that our popula
tion is at least GG,000,000. All the
laws of natural increase demand
that many. It is not credible that
the American people have sudden
ly fallen into the condition of the
French nation ; but, if Mr. Torter's
figures are correct, we must accept
that conclusion. Then the race of
Americans will be snuffed out, and
the population of the country can
be maintained only by foreign
immigration. Louisville Courier
Journal. The crop of candidates for the
Speakership of the next House is
already large. Every hoursuggests
another name. Among those most
prominently mentioned are Hatch,
of Missouri, Llount and Crisp, of
Georgia, McMillin, of Tennessee,
and Bynum, of Indiana. There
will be plenty of good material to
choose from. We hope the ques
tion of section will not be raised,
and that the ablest man, regardless
of Mason and Dixon's line, will be
choseu. Memphis Avalauche.
