reports tho condition of the State so

esta arc concerned, as worse, than at
any timo since the war. Ho states
that, while the cotton crop will be
largo, the prices will be low, and
hence not so remunerative as hereto
fore. The prices are lower because
of the increase in the yield of the
crop, and also on account of the for
eign buyers having anticipated it by
contracts when gold was high. The

This testimony of Gen. Ransom as
to the state of things in North Caro
lina is confirmed by the Wilmington
Journal and still lurther extended to
other portions of the South. We
quote from a recent article on the

dispirited. They are poor and grow-
mg poorer, and freeiy confess that
they can see do hope in the future.
Now what reason is to be assigned
for this sad picture. Is it due to the
fict that our farmers have almost
universally adopted the plan of de
voting themselves to the production
of a staple, e. g. cotton or tobacco,
and paid high prices to the North
west for provisions, tnus carxjiu5
surplus capital out of the country?
Or is it due to the financial sys
tem of the United States by
which the farming interest es
pecially has been to such an extent
undermined ? It is doubtless true

many instances, ruinous, but we at
tribute a large share of its distressed
condition to the villianous political
system by which it has been gov
erned. At the termination of the war our
farmers were sadly crippled by the
great diminution of their working
capital, and by the circumstance that
as a class they were considerably in
volved. They were therefore unable
of themselves to carry on their ex
tensive plantations and were com
pelled to look elsewhere, to commis
sion merchants, &c, for assistance.
At this time, however, on account of
the scarcity produced by the war,both
cotton and tobacco were commanding
the most encouraging prices. At
this particular juncture, if the gov
ernment had pursued a conciliatory
course towards the South and politics
had assumed a setlled state, there
would doubtless have been such an
influx of Northern immigration in
the South as would have speedily
relieved it of alt financial embarrass
ment. But while the high price of
cotton invited the cruel policy of the
general government repelled immi
gration and the golden oportunity
was lost. Vile politicians commenced
to prey upon it and capitalist feared
to invest where property had no
share in law-making but was subject
to all the depredations of licensed cu
pidity and avarice.
This we give as the theory of the
depressed est ite of the South, and
our belief is that it will continue bad
or grow worse until men of intelli
gence, honor ?.nd integrity are placed
in office. God speed that happy

1 b v '
of the monument at Fredericksburg j
to Mary, the mother of Washington, j
the comer stone of which was laid by j
General Jackson in 1S33, the New i
York Commercial Adcerliser remarks:
With the exception of crowned
heads, the number of women who
have been honored by the erection of
statues or monuments in their
memory is certainly few. Such an
honor to the mother of Washing
ton would be no less creditable to the
country than to the noble woman
whose self poise, dignity, and nobility
of character, and firmness of discip
line were pre-eminently operative in
ing the course of the " Father of his
Country." At present the site of j
this monument is said to be in a very
dilapidated condition, and the
moderate expense of the structure it
selfabout 20,000 will have to be
defrayed by Congressional action,

THE DEMOCRAT PABTY.
The New York World and the Keen-!
ng Pod engage in a discussion in
which the latter journal contends that
certain recent victories of the Demo
cratic party are no guarantee of its
success in the future. The World
deals a wholesome lesson to the Tost
and concludes its article with the
following remark :
Even in the last Presidential cleo
tion, a majority of the white voters of
the country were on the Democratic
side. If the negro vote were sub
tracted from General Grant's popular
majority it would be annihilated; add
the growingwhita desertions from
tho Republican party will very soon
reduce it to a minority in spite of its
negro allies. It is sheer debility of
political judgment which is so cock
sure that the Democratic millions
cannot be reinforced by the few hun
dred thousands needed for increasing
the white majority of Democrats to

The Sanborn-' Contracts
New facts iu relation to the San
born contracts are daily coming to
light. Sufficient, however, is already
known, it is alleged, to show that
Sanborn was a cats paw, and that
when the matter is fully investigated
not a few government officers will be
found heavy operators in this per
centage jobber. The report of the
Secretary of tho Treasury says on
this subject :
Sanborn wes first awarded a ccn
tract by George Loutwell, (though the
document was signed by Secretary
Richardson,) then Secretary of the
Treasury, by which agreement San
born was to receive 50 per cent, of
all money collected by hira. Mr.
IJoutwell gave him also a written or
der in 1; ia own hand on all the asses
sors and collectors of the country, di
recting them to aid Sanborn in his
work. Sanborn obtained informa
tion from these officers and lodged it
with the Secretary of the Treasury,
and from him obtained tho exclusive
right to collect the money due by the
persons and corporations named by
him. Sanborn, there is the strongest
reason to believe, had copied every
one of these ntnies from the books of
the regular assessors he did not
"discover" a single case.
The Tribune says editorially: " The
sum total of the taxes collected under
the contracts according to the secre
tary's report is thus far $427,000, f
which Sanborn's share is $213,500.
But this is only the beginning, It is
estimated that tho total of the whole
3,000 or C,;')00 cases, if they all yield
in the ratio of the few that have been
disposed of, will be certainly no less
Ablaze with Diamonds. Mrs
Astor, the wife of the hundred
millionaire of New York, appeared
at a party given at her Fifth avenue
residence one evening last week, at
which she literally blazed with dia
monds. On each of her shoulders
she had four stars tho uize of silver
half dollars, made of diamonds. Tier
hair was set thickly with diamonds,
and her head seemed aflame with
thera. There was a diamond bandeau
upon her brow. She had diamond
earrings and a diamond necklace of
magnificent proportions. Upon the
two sides of her chest were two
circles of diamonds about the siza of
tho palm of the hand. From thera
depended lines aud curves of diamonds
reaching to her waist, around which
she wore a diamond girdle. On the
skirts of her dress in front were two
large peacocks wrought of lines of
diamonds. There were rosettes of
diamonds on herslippers. There were
diamonds, large or small, but in
every variety and form, all over her
dress and person wherever they could
be artistically placed. She presented
an extraordinary dazzling spectacle.
A connoissuer,in precious stones, who
was present, says.the diamonds ahe
