rho War Issues Abandonod--What the
Political Futur Will Bo.
WAsm11o-roN, OCt. 2. -- Ex-Marsal
1 it.kinl, a nlative of Louisiana, who,
during the past fortnight has beel
regaining here the 1physical strength
lo.t during a recent sovero yellow
fever attack at New Orleans, was
visited by your correspondent
to-day with the following rosult-:
"Marshal., I see you are not in the
Northern canvass ; do you make
any speeches boforo your return ?"
"No ; I had sptpulated to speak
at the West early last month, but
my illness prevented.
"Will you elect any Re,)l1;-ican
Congressmon in Louisiana?
"Not one. I suspect that some
of the Federal appointoos signified
up hero that they had a Congres
sional district hare and thoro in
their pockot, but not one can be
delivored, I apprehond. Tho Re
publicans, indeed, are not now at
work as an organization, but may to
some extent reinforce the Nationale,
who have nomines in the first.tlirce
Congressional districts. I am a
member of the Republican State
Central Committee and never before
knew such Ilukowarmnoss in the
ranks as is now mnlilifost."
"Do you ascribe this result to
Mr. Hay1s' 'lpolicy?' "
"The Republican party of the
North is responsible. By its re
construction plan it propped the
Southern States with a military
crutch, and when the President
knocked it from under Louisiana
this same party had for three years
been denouncing the prop through
its leading prints and the lipfs of a
very considerablo elenieni. Grant's
Attorney Goneral, Pierrepont, wrote
Ames, of Mississippi, in '75, 'The
public are tired out with these
annial autumnal outbreaks.' Amos
wen t dowi as the Republicans of
Arkansas had toppled the year bo..
fore. Grant found himself antag
onized by strong Republicans in
Congress and by the more oracular
joinnals of Lhe party, and so the
Federal soldio, y wore pllled back
northward by the coatt-ail, company
by com1pany, regiment by regiment,
until a meagre force was left at ro,
moto points only. Grant's last
official despatch southward from the
White House was an admission to
Augur that public sentiment would
no longer sanction the maintenance
of Southern State governments by
Federal soldiery. He complainoad
to me, and doubtless to others,
nearly two years before, that this
sen timen t afl'ordedl him so little
support, outside of village papers,
in what ho conceived lhe ought to (do
with reference to the South."
"Then do you think that Presi
dent Hayes' policy faiily consists
with that old Republican senti
THlE NEGRO NEGLEcTED.
"The Republican party obviously
thinks so as a whole, however
restive seine of its statesmen, like
' Senator Conling, may be as to the
Southern experiment. Look at its
platforms in the October and No
vember States this year. In that
of Iowa alone is there any token of
marked dissent. Conventions tu rn
their backs on the South and an
nounce that the finances are the
paramount andl practically the only
issue. The fault goes down deepe~r
than any administration. He has
done his utmiost to hold his Re~
publican outposts at the South and
has gone down with them. The
- p)arty that enfranchised him into a
target has abandoned him even
while sereaming 'outrages,' and with
every pi'ovocation under Democratic
criticisms mn this year's campaigns.
,Xt attempts no vindication or defence
of its dealing with the - South and
forgets its 'sacred honor' postulate
save as regards the holder of a
bond or duo bill-an obligation, of
course, to bo scrupulously met.
The sternest censors upon the
National Republican partly to-day
at the South are not Democrats,
but Republicans, who, however
simple and ignorant they may be,
are generous-minded and quicko'ned
with a keen instinct for- fair blay.
I fear the divorce must come;i the
R~epublican North has abandoned
the political domicile wvhich its own
hands fashioned It is a confession
that reconstruction has been an
utter and ignoble failure. The
confession was substantially made,
indeed1 b.efore Mr, flayes entered
the White lHouse. The party hald
already spanked the sod with a
spade over its own issiues, and this
fall it has put a s1lab over the sod,"

These Aithmetics are the out-como of
thirty years experience of DR. SHELTON
P. SANFORD of Georgia, one of the
most skilful and Muccessful teachers in
this country In clearness of definitions,
fullness of slate exercises, thoroughneps
of analysis and general completeness,
they are unsurpassed, if indeed,

"Sanford's Arithmetics are sup 3rior to
any that I have seen, in the fullnss of the
examples, the clearness and jimplicity
of the analyses, and the accuracy of the.
rules and (einitions. This opinion is
based upon a full and tho.ough test in
the school-room. To those teachers who
may examine these Arithmetics with
reference to introduction, 1 would es
pecially commend the treatment of Per
centage and Profit and Loss. No text
books that I have ever used are so satis
