NO. 3 WHITAKER STREET, (MORNING NEWS BUILDING). J. H. BSTILL, Proprietor. W. T. THOttPSON, Editor. MONDAY, JANUARY 8, 1881. TAPPING THE WIRES. The Daily Dispatch, of Richmond, pub lished on New Year’s day a vast budget of statistical and other information, showing the progress of that city in manufactures, bade and commerce during the past year. It makes a highly satisfactory exhibit. The board of estimates and apportion ment of New York city have agreed upon the estimate of $31,354,332 59 to support the various departments of the city in 18S1. The apportionment for 1880 was $29,667,- 991 98. The Bt. Louis Republican has a special dis patch from Booneville, Missouri, stating that two negroes, a mother and son, had been found frozen to death near that place. There was an abundance of wood in the yard, but the mau was about sixty years old, and bis mother over one hundred, and both were nearly helpless. The bagging and bale tie commission house of Clark & Brackenridge, St. Louis, has gone into liquidation. Liabilities about $30,000; assets unknown. That missing railroad train on the Poto mac, Fredericksburg and Piedmont Railroad has returned to Fredericksburg, Vs., for supplies. It was only able to get fourteen miles when it was blockaded by snow. Much suffering from the extreme cold is reported throughout that section, cattle have died from exposure, and deer have been caught near dwellings, where they were driven by the cold and starvation. Hanlau and Ross have issued a challenge to any two men in the world to row them daring the early part of the eusuing season a double scull race for £SOO or £I,OOO a side. Arbitration on the Greek frontier question has been abandoned, and war between that country and the Porte is deemed inevitable. The main question now 16 whether hostili ties will be postponed till March or begin now. A large volume of business is being done in Great Britain in anticipation of money being cheap. Prices have almost univer sally advanced, and it is expected values will be inflated as they are in America. The only check to the outbreak of speculation will be a material rise in the value of money. The Crown does not seem to give itself much trouble regarding the whereabouts of the traversers in the trials now going on in Ireland. This has given the traversers much satisfaction. A dispatch from Rome states that the Pope has requested all the Roman Catholic journals to submit their articles on the state of affairs in Ireland to the Vatican authorities. Petersburg, Va., was visited by another heavy enow storm Saturday night. The Appomattox river is frozen for a considera ble distance, and navigation is completely suspended. The saddlery store of EL. Hansell, and the crockery store of Isadore Levy & Cos., New Orleans, were destroyed by fire Saturday night. Their stock was valued at SBO,OOO, and was insured for $52,000. The stock in 8. Cohen’s wholesale house was destroyed, as was Theura & Decker’s warehouse, on Tehaupitoulas street. Beveral other stocks were damaged. The total loss Is $250,000, and is believed to be fully covered by insurance. At two o’clock Saturday morning another fire broke out and de stroyed Aaron Wolf’s crockery store. The building and contents were valued at $75,- 000, insurance $55,000. The origin of both fires is believed to have been incendiary. Mrs. Michael Tweed and hsr two children were found by neighbors in a hut near Red Valley, New Jersey, Thursday night, suffer ing from the intense cold. She died Friday night, and the condition cf the children is pitiable. Henry Augustine, of Chicago, while visit ing his Uncle James Augustine, near Otis, Indiana, vainly tried to poison the latter and his entire family Friday night. Failing in this he entered James’ bedroom, kiiied Mrs. Augustine and probably fatally wounded her husband. He afterwards killed one of James’ sons and wounded another. He then escaped. If captured he will probably be lynched. Monster Land League meetings were held at Dublin, Bally Castle and Kiliala on Satur day. At the former 10,000 people were present who, after speeches from Healy and Davltt, dispersed quietly. At Ktilala 3,000 persons were present. Yesterday a meeting near Killaruey was held, in which 8,000 per sons participated. Our telegrams from all quarters agree in reporting the coldest weather known for years. The Southern Farmer's Monthly. The January number of this deserv edly popular periodical is, as usual, promptly on our table. A glance through its well, stored and copiously illustrated pages impresses us with the steady improvement which has charac terized it from its commencement, and which has already given it rank with the best agricultural periodicals pub lished in the Union, and secured for it a widespread and rapidly increasing cir culation throughout our section. The divisions of the contents of the present number are designated as follows: Agri cultural; Horticultural; Stock, Poultry, etc.; Household; Correspondence; Liter ary; Editorial; Scientific; Fashions; Mis cellaneous. These departments are each filled with seasonable articles, origi nal and selected (with numerous illustrations), imparting valuable information on all subjects of interest to the farmer, the horticulturist, the gar dener and the household, which, together with the entertaining literature, select miscellany and able editorials, comprise a collection of choice and instructive reading that cannot fail to make its monthly visits most acceptable to the family circle. The Monthly comprises thirty-six quarto pages, is handsomely printed with fair type on fine tinted paper, and put np in a neat, illuminated cover, and is furnished to yearly subscribers at $2, free of postage. Steel Rails by a New American Process. —It is reported that Mr. Shields, of St. Louis, has discovered a process by which a steel can be pro duced in a puddling furnace far supe rior to Bessemer steeL While it is admirably suited, according to the tests made by experts, to the manufacture of rails, old rails can be reheated, amalga mated with the new steel, and the two welded together in the process of rolling them into bars. The cost of the chemi cals necessary to convert the pig iron into steel is put at about $2 a ton. General Lee’s Birthday.—The mil itary of Charleston, 8. C., will celebrate the anniversary of the birthday of Gen - Robert E. Lee, January 19th, by turning out in uniform, without arms, and attending a gathering at Military Hail, where an oration appropriate to the occasion will be delivered by Colonel Hugh B. Thompson. .at- Charles O’Conor, the eminent a j s announced, has recently abandoned his * n cw and become a citizen Nantucket, Mass., where he passed two summers. It la understood Mr. O’Conor is wT?ti n e a law treatise, which is to be his final professional effort. He is In his 76th year, but in excellent health. Centralizing Tendency of the United States Supreme Coart. We have already made brief allusion to the action of the United States Supreme Court in the case of Williams and Arnert against Wm. J. Bruffy, ad ministrator, which was brought and re cently decided in the State courts of Vir ginia. It will be remembered that the suit was brought in the Rockingham County Circuit Court against an estate of which Bruffy was administrator to re cover the value of certain goods Bold by the plaintiffs, who were Penn sylvanians, to the defendant in Starch 1861. The administrator plead the act of the Confederate Government sequestrating debts to alien enemies, and that under that act the amount claimed had been paid over to the receiver ap pointed under the law. This payment, it was held, discharged the debt. The Rockingham court decided in fa ▼or of the validity of this plea, and gave judgment for the defendant. An ap peal was taken to the Supreme Court of Appeals o? the State, which decided that the decision of the court below was •‘plainly right.” The plaintiffs then ap pealed directly to the U. S. Supreme Court, which, after examining into the case, took upon itself to reverse the ac tion of the Supreme Court of Virginia, and directed that court to reverse its de cision. This the Virginia court, very properly, refused to do, and the United States Court then directed the Inferior State Court to reverse its judgment and give anew judgment in favor of the plaintiffs. This action of the Supreme Court of the United States is clearly revolution ary, and strikes at the very foundation of the doctrine of States rights. Had the case been brought originally in a Federal Court, and been decided as it was in the Circuit Court of Rockingham county, and then had an appeal been taken to the Supreme Court of the United States, the proceedings would have been all right and regular, for the Federal Judiciary is given by the United States Constitution jurisdiction over cases in litigation be tween citizens of different States. But, having been brought in a State court, and having passed regularly through the highest tribunal of justice known to that State, we cannot see what right the United States Court bad to interfere, and especially what right it had to order State courts to reverse thsir decisions. As far as this particular case is concerned it was, under the circum stances, a final decision, and the United States Supreme Court had no more right to interfere with it than it would have to order a British court to reverse one of its decisions. If the principle assumed by the Su preme Court of the United States is cor rect, then the States have no rights which the Federal Government feels bound to respect, and that clause of the Constitution which declares that “the powers not* delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohib ited by it to the States are reserved to the States respectively,’’might as well be expunged. Hereafter there would be no reliability to be placed upon the deci sions of State tribunals, and they would ail become nothing more nor less than inferior members of the Federal judicia ry systems. It is a dangerous doctrine to promulgate, and we are sorry to see that the decision in the case above enumerated was rendered by Judge Fields, who, a few months since, delivered an able and masterly dissenting opinion in the cases of the Virginia Jus tices arrested by Federal Judge Rives on the charge of not putting negroes on their juries, in which opinion he strong ly and unanswerably opposed Federal the judiciary of a State. No doubt be justifies his change of base by a plentiful supply of legal tech nicalities, but the only conclu sion to which we can at all arrive, in considering the matter, is that the United States Supreme Court, which has always been regarded as the great bulwark of the Republic and the Constitution, is taking the lead in estab lishing the pernicious doctrines of cen tralization. We hope the Rockingham (Va.) court will do as the State Supreme Court of Appeals has done—positively refuse to obey this mandate of a foreign tribunal which has no authority over it whatever. Imperial Ulvtsesin the Sulks. A Washington letter says : “When General Grant was complimented, just before the adjournment for the holidays, by the two Houses of Congress suspend ing their.business for the purpose of pay ing respects to him, comment was made on the fact that two or three prominent Republicans in the Senate and the House of Representatives were conspicuously ab sent on tbat occasion. Among those more prominently mentioned in this connection was Senator Blaine. It is said that the reason why Mr. Blaine neglected to pay his respects to General Grant in the Senate chamber was that only a few days before, when in New York, General Grant had declined to see him when he called and sent in his card. Mr. Blaine, it is said, was also informed that General Grant had said he would never speak to him again. Fnends here of General Grant also say that he is incensed against Gen. Sher man on account of the strictures of the latter on the proposition to create Gen. Grant Captain General, la fact it is cur rent rumor that Gen. Grant is angry with every one who did not favor his re nomination at Chicago last summer, and carries his resentment so far as to refuse to hold any personal intercourse with any of them.” Democratic Reorganization in New York. —The New York Herald, says the movement for the overthrow of bosses and “halls,” and for reconstruct ing the Democracy of New York On true Democratic principles, is inaugurated under favorable auspices. have no doubt, says the Herald, of its success, since Tammany is shattered, and the only excuse which Irving Hall ever had for its existence was the formidable tyranny of the rival organization. The grain trade of New York during the present year has been enormous. The receipts of all kinds (including flour re duced to bushels) from January 1 to De cember 18, amounted to 169,115,407 bushels, of which quantity 132,823,823 bushels were exported. The amount shipped was 30 per cent, greater than in 1879. Such care was used in the load ing of vessels that notwithstanding 2,500 vessels left with grain for Europe, only eight have been lost. An army officer says; “General Mc- Dowell has been rewarded for having come from the Pacific coast to New York to vote for Garfield, but his vote cost the government about $1,200. Ho got an order from the War Department for him seif and Aid de-Camp to come East, and under that order both of them drew their regular mileage and allowances, amount ing to Rbout $1,200. The records will show thn! fsCt.” HAPPY NEW YEAR! HAPPY HOMES. HAPPY HEARTS. commence right and keep it up all THE YEAR THROUGH.
