Stnte, we have had occasion to commend
not only its fuimen, but Iti manly out
spoken independence. It is no slave ot
party, but bos opinions of its own ex
pressed boldly and strongly when inva
sion demands. The North State desires
und works for its party success, but it
dues not seek success at the sucriliceol
riht, fairness or sound party policy, and
it is in support of this In tier principle that
it protests against the determined our
pose of the majority in the senute to ad
mit territories ns States on the sole plea of
party expediency. That admissions have
Ikcii made ut the present session without
exacting the proper legal qualification
from the applying territories i a fact si.
plain as admits of no justification except
the pica of party necessity, to add to the
already Inrge majority in the Senate, and
also to secure additions to repnhlirsr
strength in the electoral colleges. Then
is this comfort to the democrats; thu
while the protests and the arguments
they urge tall on unheeding ears, there
are forces at work, the result of the un
wisdom of the republican party, thnt arc
counteracting till the ellorts they are
making; and while it is vuinly striving
to strengthen itself by the addition ol
rotten boroughs, its older and most re
liable strongholds are tottering and
crumbling, and their loss is not counter
balanced by the unlawful gains they ore
making. Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Rhode
Island, indicate almost unmistakably the
strong, almost uncontrollable, tendency
of those States towards the democratic
Wc know that what the North State so
forcibly and judiciously says will be un
heeded. The senate is deaf to louder and
and stronger voices thundered into its
car in its own vhumbcr. liut what that
pnjier says is worthy to be repeated and
remembered ns timely warning against
the excesses of its party friends. Wc
iuotc the following:
The republicans in congress should be
prudent at this critical time if they desire
to continue their nartv in power. Longer
control can only be maintained by de
serving tlicconliilence ot tnepeople. 1 ncy
cannot occupy this position by adopting
uwiKesiiiii legislation to seep suprcnincy.
I lie ieopic cannot lie lunicd more than
once. I hcv arc conservative and slow ol
Siecch and iiction; but Uii'V stem to Ik
now moving on lines that lend towards
the overthrow of the great monopolies
and putting a stop to the extraordinary
extravugunce thut is cropping out at
vt nslmigtou. I hcv mnvestablish u mon

oriug a reverse ol present conditions, und
that is what thev seek.
Tint ACTlox of Sieakcr Kecd on the
question of the admission of the territory
of Idaho as a State will probably be re
viewed by the supreme court of tin
L'uited States. On the tpiestion being
put. the yens were l'Ji), nays 1, the dem
ocrats not voting. Hut Mr. Kecd
counted a quorum under his construc
tion of the rules; and the bill was de
clared passed. The democrats promise
to make this a test case, nud have the
supreme court of the I'nited Stales to
pronounce tiKiii the constitutionality ol
the rules of tile house allowing the
.-icakcr to count u quorum. Such re
course is demanded to ascertain whether
the Sieakcr is dictator or whether he is
the servant of the Ixxly over which lie
presides. We can hardly diitibt the
issue; for though the supreme court has
not always been inflexibly impartial, still
its Ireedom as 11 rule from partisan bias
is so well admitted that it is confulcntlt
relied upon to perform those iniHirtanl
functions ussigucd it under the constitu
tion, mid to stand us the impregnable
bulwark of tne ieople against the wild
ness or madness of partisan legislation.
And to the honor of the American ieopli
be it said they abide submissively by the
decisions of the court because they trust
in its wisdom and have faith in its pur
ity. The only exception is in the recent
decision of the court in the railroad
cases from some Northwestern States,
interosing between the railroads and
oppressive Stnte legislation, arousing
the anger of the representatives ot the
farmers who demand the suppression ot
the court as n tyrannical lirancliot the
uovcrnment. Hut every man in tin
country, every man in the South, nt all
events,' should stand by the court; for
that tribunal plants itself upon a broad
constitutional declaration that proierty
shall not lie taken Ironi the owner
thereof except by due process of law; and
departure Ironi this principle was the
error or the wrong 01 Mate icgisintion;
and much other ol Stnte right and sntctv
is secured under the protecting it-gis ot
the same declaration,
The great bridge to be built over the
Hudson river, connecting the Jersey
shore with New York City, seems to be
an assured fact. It is to be undertaken
within three years, mid to be finished in
the vcar 11100. It will be the greatest
Hchivement of its kind in tlie world. Its
cost, including cost of land mid property
for the approaches, will be $ 10,000,000.
Including the approaches it will be five
miles long. The length of the bridge it
self will lie .0,500 feet. The length ol
C'ich land span is l,5n0 lift, and the cen
tre spun will lie 2.HM0 feet. The height
of the towers above high water mark
will he ROO feet. The number of cables
will be H,100. The weight of Iron in the
structure will be i ,'" tons. There
will be six railroad tracks und room for
lour more. The comparison between
this mid thcllrooklyn bridge, with which
ninny are familiar, is greatly in favor of

of the former are IKI0 feet long, and the

. ON THE BOOM.

The Asheville tobacco market is com
ing to the front in a decidedly agreenble
manner. During tlie month of March
the sales amounted to 3HS.400 pounds,
and it brought $57,1)28.18. Since Sep
tember 3.698.8H0 pounds have found
their way to the different warehouses
and they brought f05l),16S,00. Over
a half million of dollurs for the crop in
six months is the record Asheville has
made as a tobacco market.
These figures show a flattering in
crease over the year of 1 ttkiP, Then from
October to April the sales amounted to
3,207,071 pounds and brought $334,
03.0!S. During March of that year
19,760 pounds were sold and the
amount paid was $47,278.10.
In the latter figures more tobacco is
shown to have been sold during March
of 1880 than during the last month, but
the amount paid wits smaller. This
shows that the farmers are learning to
produce a siqierior grade and to handle
the product better and as a consequence
to command better prices.
The average price paid for tobacco
this year wus $15.11 per hundred und
this is the next highest average in ten

GOSSIP OF THE DAY.
In order to be in the fashion, the Cos-
siper wishes to remark that yesterday
was a great day, and therefore Easter in
Asheville was a glorious success. The
display of special Easter millinery was
not sufficiently profuse to strike the be
holder dumb with astonishment and ad
miration, but there were some pretty
things worn by the sex whose mission it
is to denote by the gay bravery ol their
attire the fact that once more mankind
mav resume the even tenor of their sinful
way. Having duly mortified the flesh by
vearing out their old clothes or at least
by having been conspicuous by the incon-
spicuousness of their garb the good
friends of man who make his stay on
earth more easily bearable can now riot
in gaiety and richness of coloring, nnd no
one shall say them nay.
Probably Asheville will now become
the scene of marvelous, rapturous social
functions. Doubtless the floors of our
hostelrics nnd places of private alwde
will rise and fall in tremulous cadence
under the loving blows of the educated
feet thut chase the flying hours, and
where once was sackcloth und ashes the
fiddler shall have sway and the piper
trill u roundeluy. Oh, it will be a great
season for us all! Those who have whilcd
away the penitential season by driving
will now ride; the riders may drive, and
the jicdestrians keep on walking. All
will be changed, nnd the gloom and sad
ness of the past shall be superseded by
the merriment and jovial experiences of
the thrice-happy present. Far down the
brown-treed aistes of the past white
liearded March is vanishing to hibernate
for another twelvemonth, nnd April, with
violet eyes dewy with the rapture of liv
ingespecially in Asheville is Here, witn
the henison of the sun and the blessing of
the skies to make her popular among us

thirty days of her reign constitute the
wind-up of the lasy, picnicking existence

Having hud their fling, passed through

on the invalids and trying to the strong
nnd having regained much to be proud of
during their stay, they will now begin to
get renily to rush back to business and
try the experiment of seeing how fur they
can go without breaking down again
under it. It is a cheerful subject, but it
cannot be dismissed without this final
query : How many of the excellent reso
lutions not again to plunge over their
heads into the whirlKol of business and
socinl engagements wilt the makers of
these resolutions keep ?
Occasionally when you're out riding or
driving vou are astonished to sec at some
fork in the roads a sign that tells you
where you are and jierchaiice furnishes a
clue to a roud that lends you to some
much sought objective point. But you
are not frequently astonished in this
way, and this lends the 0ossiier once
more to repeat a query once before pro
pounded: Why don't somebody make a
move to have the location of the more
popular drives properly designated at
certain points where it is now an easy
mutter for people not to the manor bom
to stray from the right road ? It would
be inexpensive, nnd it would be a great
convenience lor the scores who make con
stant use of the roads ubout this town.
