work of arresting Blackwood was : at i:i .
Stone's hands und he and 3IeXaIIy went
over into South Carolina after their man.
They found Blackwood at his h-.tnc and i
brought him to Georgia. They say that '
he came with them of his owe accord, say- j
ing that he would no? p-.:t tLern to^ tiie j
trouble of getting requisition papers. This, j
however, is denied.
Blackwood is now condned in the Au j
gusta jail, For some time past Governor j
Richardson h::s been endeavoring to secure j
his release, but, failing in that, he h ss now ;
/- made requisition for Stone and McJSally.
One peculiar feature of the ease is the
fact that Stone is al>o under indictment i::
this State, and if the court in which the in- j
w-r-, scpuml interferes. South i
Carolina will probably haw to wait until j
he is tried for the ilrsi rfflV-.-c. It is xiiti j

this is true, mailers arc likely to become j
even more complicated.
Some S'>uth Carolina papers devote col- j
umns to tins "outrage," as they >erm the j
arrest of Blackwood, while others are dis- !
posed to treat it facitiouslv. Under the
caption, "The Letters of the Two Gov
crnors," the Caro inc. Spartan, of Spartanburg,
gives place to the following:

Our Mexican Trade.
The large and growing trade of Mexico
ought to be controlled by the United States.
Commercial intercourse between the two
countries lies been hitherto hindered by a
Mexican tariff which practically excluded
t.hosa articles which ih<; U "ited States could
best have supplied. There was no benefit
to Mexico from this tariff. I: did not protect
any considerable- home industries, and
it was laid principally upon articles which
are not now productd in Mexico. As no
effort was made to supply the -ionic market
with home manufactures, these taxes bore
very heavily on the Mexican consumer.
A new Mexican taniT schedule has been
arranged to go into effect on the first of
July. In the opinu n v.-' - arc most
familiar with the condition and m e is o<
Mexico, the new tariff will a ive a decided
? impetus to our trade wh a tLa c.:::mry.
The Mexican reciprocity ir< ::;y now pending
has for its object the e./.-.;j:i?ament of
closer and more extensive commercial relations
between the United Stales an:I Mexico.
It has been ratified by the Senate, but
the House has never pasv.-d the legislation
necessary to its enforcement. There will
not be so great a demand for this treaty
now that Mexico has so revised h".r tariff
as to accomplish, at least in pa-t, the ends
aimed at in the treaty. Mmy o: the principal
articles which our mercLa:.-.- and
manufacturers would have exported to
? ?fc- Mexico if the treaty had been rat hied, will
be found on the Mexican .Yee lis: after :he
first of July. So far as 1: gees. the new
ATpviVsn tariff is better for us than a recio
rocity treat}* would be. It gr:a;ts us some
very valuable privileges and exacts ia return
no concessions on our part.?AiiajUG

The Toronto, Canada, Globe,* referring
to Lord Salisbury's proposition for a
settlement oi tie fishery question, says:
Lord Salisbury proposes an abject surrender
to the Washington government,
not a surrender oi anything belonging
to the English or Great Britain, but the
surrender of an immensely valuable
properly belonging to the Britons oi
Canada, and the surrender of every main
contention hitherto upheld by the
Canadian people. V- o pointed out the.
other day that the issue between Canada
and the Cnited States was such that one
or the other must yield absolutely unless
a general settlement evading that issue
could be arrived at. One has been
It consists in giving everything to the
"United States, and in disgracing and dishonoring
the people of this country as
they could never be ciisgracea and dishonored
by manfully defending their
rights to the poiai ox war. 'ihe offer oi
the tory premier is cowardly, despicable
and treacherous to Canada, and should
it be ratilled by the dominion parliament
it will never again be possible to assert
rights to exclude American fishermen
from our inshore waters. Conkling'*
i*rofes?:ojial Success.
There is something remarkable in the
professional success which, has attended
Mr. Conklmg since he was forced out of
politics. As a general thing, the lawyer
who is long in political life becomes a
* lawyer only in name. Jie may pass lor
one when among those not learned in
the law, but among practitioners lie
passes for a politician. The reason for
this is obvious. The laws of Parliament
or Congress are not the rules of Courts
. or the decisions of the Justices, end only
the natural lawyer follows the laicer after
the necessity lor doing so lias passed.
Conkling never abandoned the custom.
\Viiiie :n puonc me lie pursued ii:s ;
studies as diligently as when only a I
struggling beginner, and the result was
that he was not a generation behind the i
age when lie resumed the practice of hio
profession. Few Xew York lawyer
make naif as much money as he, and it;
is said that few savi: more than he has
saved in recent years.
A Scheme to Sob th? Govcrnmeir..
The Pacific Bailroad Commis-den Las '
hardly been organized b-i'ore the rum r
is put out that the stoc'.hold r ; of the
Union Pacific, one oi the companies to
be investigated, will turn ov.r the main
line, stripped of its branches and business,
to the government for an elephant.
The government will thus, it is assumed, .
practically lose its debt, and the men
who have swindled it will iurm a new
transcontinental system out of the roads
built, it is alleged, with Union 'Pacific
funds, but not consolidated with the
Union Pacific lino. The invest! ration
now on foot will show whether the
scheme will work. It may tarn
the government will be ubie to truce its
property and find itself entitled to control
the branch lines.

any number of reverses to dishearten

lias done wonders for Mr. Hofiman. It.
seems like raising the dead to life; he

he v.'as nothing but skin, ana bonc-s. The
soro on his breast is healed over, and you
can see the one on the forehead is healing
up from the top. I wish it had been
so that I could hare taken it when be
was at his worst, but I could not leave
my oiiice and he lives some distance from
here. Yours respectfully,

condition. In a sbort time his boneless

ever recover from such a low state, being

blood poison, with the bone of his forehead
rotted and taken out 2. inches
by the doctors, and given cut to die.
From skin and bones, wrecked by blood

work of B. B. B.
Xot many such desperate cases may
be found, but when th^y are they should'
not despair or recovery, as B. B. B. will
cure them.
' YThen this medicine can cure such ex

will cure all cases of blood poison of less
violence, as it has done in thousands of.
The Mayor and doctors of Conover
will verify the awful condition from
