I*o. 3 WHITAKER STBEET* (MORNING mcwa BPILDDfO). j. h. Err ZC Praprlfior. W. X. THOaPWa, Editor. THCBSDAY. FEBRUARY 10. IMI. TAPPING THE WIRES. The United States Circuit Court at Rich mond yesterday refused, after elaborate : argument made in behalf of the petitioners, ' to grant a postponement ot the saie of the Atlantic, Ohio and Mississippi Railroad for ninety days, so as to permit of its redemp tion. The previous order of court directing the sale to proceed to-morrow was con firmed. The attention of Congress yesterday was mainly occupied with counting and declar ing the result of the electoral vote. A few minutes after 12 o’clock the Senate filed Into the H ouse. Tellers were appointed by (both bodies, who counted the votes of the different States as handed them by Mr. Wheeler, then informed Mr. Wheeler of the result, and he, in turn, announced it to the joint convention. Consideration of the vote of Georgia wae postponed until the last, so as to see bow tt would affect the final result. When the tellers completed the count it was found that of the whole number of electoral votes, 369, Garfield and Ar thur had received 214, and were duly elected President and Vice President of the United States to serve for four years from the 4th of March next. Senator Thurman, of the tellers, then announced that were the vote of Georgia counted the result would be Hancock and English 155 votes, Garfield and Arthur 214, and In any event the latter were elected. After the announcement the Senate retired to its chamber, and both houses adopted resolu tions to the effect that the Constitution and the law had been duly complied with. The Senate then took up and passed the pension appropriation bill, and pending discussion on the post office appropriation bill ad journed. The House passed the legislative appropriation bill, and soon after also ad journed. Latest reports from New Orleans are to the effect that the waters in rear of the city are still rising. The citizens in the overflowed district are suffering great and a com mittee has been organized for their relief. Great damage has been done the railroads leading into the city, and the storm on the coast is said to be the most severe known for years. At Pensacola fine weather has set In, and no loss of life is reported, bat every wharf in the city, except the Pensacola Railroad dock.was damaged. Pass Manchae, Louisiana, was yesterday visited by a severe storm, which swept away every building In the place. No lives were lost, but the citi zens lost all their household effects, pro visions, e tc. The New York stock market opened strong yesterday, and in the early dealings prices advanced }4 to 1 % per cent. A reac tion set in, and in the afternoon prices again advanced, but the market closed weak on a decline. The transactions aggregated 282,- 000 shares. The coercion bill was passed to a second reading yesterday in the House of Com mons, by a vote of 359 to 50. The English War Office has received a telegram from Genera! Sir G. P. Colley giv ing an account of an engagement which he recently had with the Boers near the Ingago river. He claims to have completely re pulsed the Boers after inflicting upon them a heavy loss. A dispatch to the Time* says the defeat of the Boers is a questionable success. The correspondent of the Stan dard says that Sir George Colley has suffered a great defeat. Fears are entertained at Durban as to the probable attitude of the Orange Free State towards the Boers. The Irish Bishops, through Archbishop McCabe, of Dubilo, have issued a reply to the pastoral letter of the Pope in reference to the Irish agitation, In which they state the attitude of the Church upon the troubles of Ireland, and express their ap preciation of the counsels of his Holiness. "rte first count of the census returns in reference to the cotton crop of 1879, puts the total acreage at 14,054,167. and the total number of bales produced at 5,566,767. A dispatch to the Boston Junrr.al states that fears are entertained of the possible absorption of the Montreal Telegraph Com pany In the great consolidation. A large i amount of the company’s stock has been ; transferred to Wilson G. Hunt, a Western , Union director. The publication of the Russo-Afghan cor respondence shows that Russia, through her officers in Central Asia, had reached a cor dial understanding with Afghanistan, and while advising the Afghans to make peace with England,openlv cocnselied the Afghans to prepare secretly for war. It Is claimed that the correspondence show s that a plot was on foot to create an insurrection among the Mohammedans in India. The London Tun , commenting on the Russo-Afghan correspondence, argues that the Afghan invasion was an inevitable con sequence of a real and pressing danger on the frontier of the British empire In India. At Atlanta yesterday, Justice Woods re fused the injunction prayed for in the suit of Tilley vs. the Savannah, Florida and West ern Railway, and the Railroad Commission of Georgia. The rates prescribed by the Commission will, in accordance wltn this decision, go into effect upon this road. A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Dennis Eagan, Collector of Internal Revenue at Madison, Fla., charged with being accessory to the murder of Patterson on Tuesday. New Books. As Asecootal Hihtort or the British Parlia ment, etc. By George Henry Jennings. Sew York: D. Appleton & Cos. Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott <£ Cos. 631 pages. This a very valuable compilation. It Is wonderfully compendious. In the very readable form of detached anec dotes it gives a vast amount of useful as well as interesting information about the .British Parliament, its rise and progress, -nd its leading men in all periods. The pendix embraces lists of the various ArUaments, Speakers of the House of ► Commons, Prime Ministers, Lord Chan cellors and other high officials, and the copious index to the volume makes its contents readily available. “ The Heart and Its Function ” is the last issued health primer of Appleton A Cos., and treats of a subject very near to everybody, and about which, physically, many people are much concerned. The structure and functions of the heart, and its relations to the general system, are intelligently and instructively discussed for the edification of the unprofessional reader. Cotton Mills North and South.— The New York Mail, discussing the in- I crease of Southern mills as disclosed by the census, says that “while the South has made rapid progress in cotton manu facture, there is no indication that the North is to lose any part of this indus try. The fact that throughout a great i part of each year the climate of the South is extremely warm, makes the operation of cotton mills there difficult The Mail man is entitled to a patent right for anew discovery.” If ' fhe revenue of the Dominion of Cana for January was $2,365,414 —an in ease of $600,993 over January, 1880. The total revenue for the seven months aiding January 31, was $16,444,951 — m increase of $4,129,139 over the same seven months of the last fiscal year. “Vascoe; or, Until Death,” by Mrs. B. ,M. Zimmerman, of Lake Irma, Florida, vill begin in the issue of the Weekly . Mews of Febmaryfl2(h. feblo-3t Judge Woods' Decision. From oar dispatches this morning it will be seen that Judge Woods has at last made public his decision in the case of TiUey v. the Savannah, Florida and Western Railway, and that he has re fused the injunction asked for restrain ing the Railroad Commission of Georgia from enforcing its rates upon that road. An appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States lies from this decision, but the matter may be regarded as virtually settled, and the constitutionality of the Railway Commission law as finally sus tained. While this is the case, however, the principle of justice underlying the law remains unimpaired. We have always maintained that it is neither just, right nor equitable that the Legislature should place three d.sinterested citizens in ab solute and despotic control over the management of vast and important interests, in which millions of dollars of private capital are invested —and in vested, too, upon inducements held out to the investors by the State. That rail roads, as well as all other corporations chartered by the Slate for the benefit of the public, should be restrained so that they may not become oppressors of the public is a question beyond controversy. But that certain corporations should be singled out as objects of restraint by the State, or that any corporation should have the management of its affairs virtu ally taken entirely out of its own hands by the State—especially after the State feels confident that it can command the benefits of such corporation— seems to us inconsistent with equity if not with justice. This principle still makes the Railway Commission law of Georgia a vital ques tion before the Legislature, and de mands careful consideration. Making the Railway Commission a board of arbitrators to decide all questions in dis pute between the railroads and the people, with an appeal to the courts in case either party feels aggrieved, would be eminently equitable and satisfactory to all concerned —the people on one side, and the bondholders and stock holders of the roads on the other. The National Debt Showing. Since March 4, 1877, the public debt has been reduced #196,000,000. The debt statement for February 1 shows a reduction of #7,382,168, making #50,- 172,727 for the seven months of the current fiscal year. The reduction for the corresponding months of the pre vious fiscal year was #26,500 000. During the past month there has been no change in the principal of the debt bearing in terest, except a small decrease in the refunding certificates. The interest due has been diminished #6,400,000; the debt on which interest has ceased, #4,200.000, and the interest there on #IOO,OOO. There are still outstanding of called five-twenty bonds #519,750, of ten forty bonds #1,201,000, of consuls of 1865-’GB #2,719,800, and of sixes of 1880 #2,147,000. Many of the outstanding called bonds are still in the Treasury on deposit, though not drawing interest, as security for bank circulation. The reduction in the debt would have been nearly #10,000,000 for the month had not the expenditures been larger by #2,500,000 than in January of last year, a fact due in part to the increased pay ments for pensions. The Treasurer holds #59,235,102 in silver dollars, against #48,190,518 at the beginning of January. The imports in January, 1881, were smaller than in January, 1880, so that the customs re ceipts were only #14,575,000, about #1,442.000 less than during the corres ponding month last year. The internal revenue is well maintained, and in Jan uary amounted to #10,248,000. Both branches of the revenue are yielding largely, and there should be no difficulty in effecting a reduction in the debt of more than #75,000.000 for the year. Rev. Jabez Lamar Monroe Curry, D. D., LL. D., the newly elected agent of the Peabody Educational Fund, was born in Lincoln county, Georgia, June 5, 1825, and is consequently in the fifty sixth year of his age. He graduated at the University of Georgia in 1843, and at Dane Law School (Harvard College) 1845. He served in 1846 as a Texan ranger in the Mexican war. In 1847, 1853 and 1855 he was a member of the Legislature of Alabama; in 1856 a Demo cratic Presidential elector; from 1857 to 1861 member of the Federal Congress; in 1861 elected to the Confederate States Congress; in 1864 entered the Confed erate army, and at the close of the war was in command of a regiment of cav alry. In J 965 he was elected President of Howard College, Alabama; in 1866 he was ordained to the Baptist min istry; in 1868 he was elected Professor of the English Language and Literature in Richmond (Virginia) College, a leading Baptist educational institu tion, to the Presidency of which he was shortly afterwards elevated, and which he still holds. Dr. Curry also has charge of a Baptist church in Rich mond, and has declined several calls to wealthy churches at other points. Dr. Curry brings to the discharge of the duties of bis new position an acquaint ance with the men and places and insti tutions of his field of labor (the Southern States), which, added to his great ability, must admirably qualify him for the position. The Richmond Dispatch men tions that Dr. Sears, several years ago, in anticipation of his own death, named Dr. Curry to the Hon. Robert C. Win throp, chairman, and others of the trus tees, and, with their approval, held fre quent consultations with him about bis plans and purposes, and thus prepared him to take up the work easily and carry it forward according to the same general ideas. The Eatonton Messenger says as the daily papers of Georgia are well up in railroad matters, it desires to propose them the following conundrum: “Do you believe that the purchasers of the Macon and Brunswick Railroad intend to build the extension to Atlanta?'’ It asks this question because “a few de luded people in Jasper might perhaps like a little light on the subject.” Well. If the Railway Commission is to be permitted to exercise arbitrary control over the iron roads of Georgia, it is our opinion that the purchasers of the M. and B. will not make the extension, if they can possibly get out of it Capi talists are not usually in the habit of laying out millions of dollars unless they can have something to say about the management of their money and in terests after making their investments. But, if railways are such grinding monopolies and such terrible evils as the friends of the Commission assert, why do the people of Jasper or any other county want any more of them ? The latest Cabinet gossip is that New York is, after all, to have the Treasury Department in General Garfield's Cabi net; that Senator Kirkwood, of lowa, Is to be Secretary of the Interior, and Pennsylvania is to have the Post Office Department. Garfield's Conm Towards the South. The probable course which General Garfield will pursue, as President of the United Stales, towards the South has long been a subject of much speculation. Ever since his election it has been freely reported that he would, in the main, be governed in his administration by motives of patriotism; that he would en deavor to destroy sectionalism, and that, to accomplish this end, and at the same time build up the Republican party in the South, he would be extremely liberal towards this section. It seems, however, that this mooted question has at last been settled; that Garfield has committed himself to stalwartism, and that he will be a sectional and partisan President. We are justified in arriving at this con clusion from the report of the result of the recent visit of the ConkliDg delega tion to Mentor, which was published in the News of Tuesday last The determination of the President elect is not to be.wondered at. True, no President was ever offered a more bril liant opportunity to make an enviable reputation for patriotism, and leave the heritage of a good name to his children, than will be afforded him. Radicalism is obnoxious to the great masses of the Southern people—and is therefore con fined within sectional limits—because heretofore the aims of the Radical party have been to humiliate and degrade the whites of the South, destroy society and mongrelize and ruin our people, and to accomplish this, that party has relied for strength on thieving carpet baggers from the North, and the very worst element of both races in the South. Hence Rad - i cal ism has been made odious amongst us, and it has become to be regarded as traitorous to our section for a Southern man to affiliate with what are acknowl edged to be our worst enemies. This is why the South is solidly Democratic. The result of the recent Presidential election, however, has left the Southern people in a frame of mind in which the odium attached to the Republican party might readily be removed. The treachery of certain Democratic leaders in the North, which defeated Hancock and turned the country once more over to the tender mercies of the Radical party, taught us that some of the most powerful of our so-called Northern Democratic friends are ready to aban don their principles at any moment, if by doing so they can advance their own selfish and political ends. Thus, while the South still remains—as she ever will re main—true to the grand principles of the Democratic party, she feels that as far as her personal interests are concerned, she cannot rely upon her Northern allies, and that she has little to hope for from either political party as at present constituted. Were Mr. Garfield to take advantage of this condition of affairs, and pursue a liberal, enlightened and wise policy towards the South, while he could not convert this section to Republicanism, he would undoubted ly remove from his party much of the odium and disgust which now are at tached thereto, and would take a decided step onward towards desectionalizing politics, and making himself recognized throughout the land as the President of the whole country. But great as is his opportunity for making for himself so enviable a reputa tion, Mr. Garfield will not avail himself of it, because he cannot. He is a Re publican, thoroughly and wholly identi fied with his party, and the great object of his administration will be, as has been the case with his predecessors, to make supremacy superior to public weal. To deseetionalize the Republican party means to destroy that part}’. It was born in sectionalism, nurtured in discord, and hate and venom are its natural food. To make it a national party, therefore, would be to deprive it of it3 natural subsistence, and it would die. This Mr. Garfield well knows, and it is a matter of no wonder that he has announced his intention to make his administration thoroughly radi cal in its character. The South has no right to expect anything else, and the only course for the Southern people to adopt is that which we have so often re commended—while remaining steadfast to their principles, develop their material resources, accumulate money, and keep it among themselves. With wealth, and, unfortunately, with wealth alone in this country, will come political power. A good deal is said from time to time about the cheap living of the Chinese in the United States, and it is interesting to know something of the expense of living in their own country. The San Francisco Bulletin has been examining a report made by Consul Denny, at Shanghai, and condenses it into the fol lowing facts aud figures: A master workman in any of the trades in China gets $3 per week, or $156 per annum. But the workmen only get half that re numeratiod; $1 50 per week, or S7B per annum, is the average rate, and it is not every workman who can obtain it. Youngsters or women get 50 cents per week, or $26 per annum. It will be ob served that these are the wages paid in the higher walks of art and mechanics. There is only one class of operatives who are more handsomely rewarded. Gold and silversmiths do a little better. The silk reeler or spinner sometimes gets from $1 to $3 per day, because the silk has to be reeled off the cocoons in a given time, and as a consequence the work has to be prosecuted day and night. In connection with the compensation specified the Consul figures out the ex penses per annum of a master and a journeyman workman as follows : For a master. For a workman. For food, etc $73 For food, etc $46 F->r rent, etc 36 For rent 12 For clothing 12 For clothing 8 Total SUO Total $65 The master, says the Consul, generally lives at the workshop, where he has, perhaps, two rooms, besides a place to cook in. The household furniture may be estimated at from S2O to S3O. The ordinary workman, if married, will share a small house with a friend and occupy one room, and have access to the kitchen. He may live with his parents, in which case his earnings go to the common fund. Under such circum stances. $lO to sls will cover the value of the household furniture. The New Yorkers are in & flurry over an impending water famine, and the water officers are having a rough time of it in explaining to the wrathful public the why and wherefore of the deficient supply. The officers say the scarcity is because of waste of the water, or be cause the frost has diminished the facili ties for the outlet of water through the aqueducts. The sufferers answer that these are not sufficient excuses, in view of the vast cost of the water distribution system in New York and its boasted per fection Meantime, the water is getting lower every day, and it is stated that there Is scarcely a family in the city which does not absolutely suffer for the want of its usual supply. No swindler shall shave us except it be with Caticura Shaving Soap. What the Obelisk Suggest*. Discussing the Egyptian obelisk in New York’s park, the St. Louis Repub lican calls attention to the fact that in all that makes such a relic of antiquity interesting this monument is quite as rich as either its smaller companion now erected in London or the larger on® in Rome. Here are the striking sugges tions made by our St. Louis contempo rary: “There was no Greece or Rome when it was born, and Greece and Rome have come and gone, and the obelisk still sur vives. Nations now the most civilized and cultured were then in far deeper and darker barbarism than the Indians we are now hurrving toward the Pacific. The proudest capitals of Europe to-dav, if then they existed at all, were a little collection of mud huts, inhabited by half naked savages. The hemisphere whose commercial metropolis it now graces was not so much as known to Europe until two thousand years after our obelisk saluted the worshipers at the Temple of the Sun. Christianity is young compared to this sculptured granite, which Abraham and Moses may have gazed upon, and which has outlasted the ancient faith that reared it—a faith then thought to be eternal. The religion, the philosophy, the politics and the art to which it once belonged are now the puzzle of scholars and antiquarians; yet here is the obelisk, worn, indeed, by the assaults of time, but still as firm and strong as when it left the hands of the workmen of Syene. How strange, how sadly suggestive, that a bit of carved stone has so much more immortality in it than the noblest pro ducts of the immortal intellect! Our obelisk has witnessed the rise and fall of the mightiest empires earth has seen. Has it crossed 10,000 miles of ocean to witness the marvelous growth, the glori ous consummation and the final decay of the greatest republic earth has seen? It has stood by the death beds of Egypt, Assyria, Persia, Greece and Rome. Who dares to say it wiil not stand by ours?” A story comes from Washington that Senator Davis will settle the question of the control of the Senate if he gets a chance by preserving a strict neutrality and observing a close impartiality; that he will not consider party lines in voting upon the committees. He will, for in stance, vote to put Senator Edmunds at the head of the Judiciary Committee and to keep Senator Bayard in his Chair manship of the Committee on Finance. In fact Senator Davis proposes to at tempt the dangerous experiment of training with the hounds and running with the hare. The proposition, re marks the Baltimore Gazette, looks to be a very pretty one, with more than a shade of plausibility in it, but when Senator Davis gets fairly to work to make up the Senate committees to suit himself he may discover that what may appear an impartial distribution to him will not be received by either party in that Christian spirit of resignation which ought to characterize party Senators in Congress, and he may discover the in convenience of attempting to sit on two stools at once. We are bound to regard the rumor as unfounded until it has been confirmed by the Illinois Senator himself. Textile A_rt Schools. —The first in ternational exposition in London opened the eyes of the industrial world to the importance of special sources of educa tion in promoting the skill of artisans. The Art Schools of Kensington were then conceived. They have been fol lowed up by many such schools lnFrance, Germany, Austria and Belgium. There are schools of this sort in Massachusetts, and now Philadelphia discovers the need to buckle herself to the good work. The textile manufacturers in that city say that such schools are a trade necessity. Woolen and cotton mills are springing up at all points in the South and West, and the competition begins to be so severe that nothing but higher skill in the workman will enable Philadelphia to maintain its present status at the head in these manufactures. The manufacturers have therefore determined to establish a school of practice in the textile arts, in which instruction will be given in de signing, spinning, weaving, dyeing and finishing. The board of managers of the Textile Association contemplates a chartered institution, with a capital of #IOO,OOO. A part of this money has already been subscribed. The Earth's Population.— Behm and Wagner, in the last edition of their book on the population of the earth, esti mate the entire population of the in habited globe at 1,456,000,000 persona. Europe, without counting Iceland and Nova Zembla, is believed to have 315,- 929,000 inhabitants on an area of 176,- 349 9 German square miles, or at the rate of 1,791 persons to the German square mile; Asia is put down as having 833,- 707,000 inhabitants on 839,478 square miles —that is 1,031 persons to the square mile; Africa, as having 305,679,000 in habitants on 543,187 square miles, or 387 persons to the square mile; America, as having 95,495,500, on 697,138 5 square miles, or 137 to the square mile; Austra lia, as having 4,031,000, on 162,609 square miles—that is, 24 persons to the square mile; the Arctic regions are as sumed to have 82,200 inhabitants, on 82,091 square miles, or about one person to every square mile. The sum total, as observed, is 1,455,923,500 persons, on 2,470,903.4 square miles, or at the rate of 589 persons to the German square mile. The German empire comprises 9,815.6 square miles, with a population, in 1878, of 44,210,948 persons. General Grant’s more immediate and pressing necessities having now been happily provided for by the presentation to him of SIOO,OOO outright, which has just been raised for him by his Phila delphia friends, the further gift of $250,- 000, which Mr. Jones, of the New York Times, has also at last succeeded in get ting subscribed for the General, will be put at interest. On $15,000 out of that, and the SB,OOO or $9,000 he was already getting from other property, with a few Philadelphia and Washington houses thrown in, and the Isthmus canal salary of SIO,OOO, the Hartford Times thinks he can manage, by strict economy and close attention to business, to make a fair living Pension Statistics. —Senator Davis, of West Virginia, ia his remarks on the pension appropriation bill Thursday, fur nishes some facts and figures which are perfectly startling. From the estimates of the Commissioner of Pensions he showed that to pay the pension cases now pending will require almost $200,000,- 000, and for years to come all the way from $50,000,000 to double that amount annually. He well said that at the rate the pension list is increasing it may take mere than the national debt Claims tor pensions are now coming in at the rate of three or four hundred a day, and for the fiscal year of 1880 141,460 applica tions were filed. The Utah Mormons have deliberately nullified the law against polygamy, yet the Federal Government dare not touch them, and the Republican organs com placently defend the institution. The Republican party with its boasted “morality” is incarnated hypocrisy. "Vascoe; or. Until Death,” by Mrs. B. M. Zimmerman, of Lake Irma, Florida, will begin in the issue of the Weekly News of February 12th. feblO 3t Diphtheria and Scarlet Fever. The following extract from a circular issued by Dr. James Crane, of the Brook lyn Health Department, has important suggestions which are equally applica ble to city and country, wherever these contagious diseases exist: “Diphtheria and scarlet fever are high ly contagious diseases, attacking persons of all ages. They may be contracted from persons that are already affected, from the clothes they have worn and from everything which has been in the room with them. Even the walls of the room may infect persons coming into it after the patient has recovered, unless the poison is destroyed. In order to pre vent their spread in a family or house where they exist and to promote the recovery of the persons attacked the following simple measures should be conscientiously and rigidly carried out, thereby preventing much suffering and saving human life. .An upper, sunny room, provided if possible wi’h an open fireplace and with no other children on the same floor, should be arranged for the patient by removing everything from it which can possibly be spared, such as books, clothing and window curtains, remembering that when once the patient has entered the room nothing can with safety be removed until disinfected or fumigated. One or two adults should take the entire charge of the patient, under no circumstances coming in contract with other persons, more especially children. Open win dows and open fireplaces with fire in them day and night, avoiding draughts and chilly air, protect the sick and those who nurse them. Nothing should be removed from the room when the patient has once entered it until it has been thoroughly disinfected or fumigated. “Procure from a drug store one pound of sulphate of zinc; the price should not exceed thirty cents. Put into an ordi nary water pail eight tablespoonfuls of sulphate of zinc and four of common salt, and to this add one gallon of boil ing water. This disinfecting solution is to be kept in the room, and into it should be placed and kept for one hour every article of soiled clothing, bedding, hand kerchiefs, etc. When they are removed from this they should be put into boiling water before being washed. The dishes and spoons used by the patient should be put into boiling water before they are permitted to leave the room. Remem ber that every article which is in the room can convey the disease, and that nothing should go from it until the poison which it might carry is destroyed. “See that the whole house from cellar to attic is clean. Keep the cellar dry, well ventilated and well whitewashed; never allow, even for a day, garbage or other filth to be kept in it. Open the windows of sleeping rooms every day for as long a time as possible, fresh air being an excellent disinfectant.” Morton's memory is the cause of con siderable disturbance and excitement in Indiana. It seems that in laying the corner stone of the new capitol a num of documents and papers concerning the history of Indiana were deposited there in. Records were thus deposited con cerning every Governor of the State ex cept Morton. Governor Porter, in his inaugural address, called attention to this neglect shown to “the great war Governor,” and charged it to the hatred that the Democrats felt towards him. He claimed that Morton was one of the greatest men ever produced by “the Hoosier State,” and should not be treat ed in this manner. He therefore sug gested that the side of the building be pulled down, the corner stone taken out and photographs, messages and other documents of Morton’s regime placed therein. In other words, he wants the people to go to the expense of several thousand dollars to revive the memory of a man who wrought the people of In diana more injury than any son she gave birth to. In the North American Review is an article which contains marvelous ac counts of the ruins to be found in Cen tral America, sustaining the narrative of old Stevens, who, twenty years ago, had the best reputation for imagination of any traveler since Marco Polo’s day. M. Chamay now declares that he saw there structures more wonderful and far sur passing the Pyramids of Egypt. He says that every thing indicates a dense population in the remote past, and that we can now easily believe the assertion of Cortez, that three days after his ar rival in this region he had opposed to him an army of more than 80,000 men. The Bethlehem Time* notes, as a curij ous coincidence, that since the oleomar garine business has come to the front the soapstone quarries in the vicinity of Easton have been run night and day. Be fore the demand for oleomargarine there was very little demand for soapstone. But it is row ground up into a smooth, greasy and almost impalpable powder, very useful for purposes of adulteration. It is cheap, and gives weight and sub stance to candies, sugar, flour, butter and other substances which are sold by the pound. It is said that under Mr. Garfield, the present reputation of the White House upon the “wine question” is not likely to be maintained. He is njt an abstainer, and does not propose to adopt the Hayes plan of disembowelling oranges and fill ing them with frozen rum punch, merely to achieve popularity with the temper ance people. Even those who disap prove the use of wine should commend Mr. Garfield’s alleged refusal to adopt the hypocrisy now in use* at the White House.; A bill has been introduced in the Mis souri Senate to meet the case of “emo tional insanity” man-slayers. It pro vides that when the plea of insanity is made to the charge of homicide, it should be put in writing before the jury is sworn, and where the prisoner is ac quitted on this plea, the jury shall so state in their verdict, and the court shal make an order requiring the acquitted prisoner to be confined for life in a suit able place, to be provided. The favorable report of the Senate Committee upon the Chinese treaties in sures their ratification, which will make the matter of action under them upon the “Chinese question” a “burning ques tion” in the next Congress. They im pose no restrictions upon Chinese immi gration, but merely aecord permission to this country to impose restrictions. The Pacific coast will be likely to insist upon a more stringent measure than the Re publican Congressmen will support. A Statue of Washington. —The special committee of the New York Chamber of Commerce having in charge the'project of a statue of George Wash ington, on the steps of the Treasury building, have recommended that the work be given to J. Q. A. Ward, the sculptor.

THI MONROE DOCTRINE. Its Connection with Affairs in North and South America. Cincinnati Gazette. The revival of the discussion of the Monroe doctrine, in connection with the Panama canal scheme, suggests the his tory of that doctrine as not ill-timed. We have, fortunately, on record, not only the outside events which gave rise to it, but something of its inside history, as given by Mr. Calhoun some twenty five years after its promulgation. It is well known that it was uttered by President Monroe, in his annual mes sage to Congress, in the year 1823. Some eight years earlier, and shortly after the fall of Napoleon, the holy alli ance was formed. The parties to it were Russia, Austria, Prussia and France. Their objects were very religiously, but somewhat vaguely,stated to be assistance to each other in case of need, and the treatment of their subjects as members of a Christian family. The world in general, however, understood it to be a league of absolutism against the rights and freedom of the nations, a bond to perpetuate monarchies and repiess the spirit of self government in the people. Three years later the five great powers of Europe assembled in congress at Aix la-Chapelle, and formed an alliance for the exercise of a general supervisory power over European affairs and the suppression of dangerous revolutions, limiting themselves, however, to the strictest observance of international law. Not long after the spirit of revolution broke out In Spain, Naples and Sardinia, and the Constitution of Cadiz was pro claimed in all three kingdoms at once. This alarming state of affairs provoked the convocation of a congress at Trop pan, in Silesia, in October, 1820, which was removed, near the end of the same year, to Laybach, in Styria. Here, not only the five great powers were repre sented, but the King of Naples and some smaller powers. Great Britain protested against the proposed intervention in the affairs of Italy, but was overruled, and absolutism was restored in all its vigor on the peninsula. In 1811 a Royalist insurrection occured in Northern Spain, to which France gave comfort, if not aid. A congress had been arranged to meet in Verona, when that of Laybach broke up. The princi pal measure here agitated was armed in terference in the affairs of Spain. Again Great Britain protested agaiDst the pro posed action, and the Duke of Welling ton, who was the British Envoy, not only declared the refusal of his govern ment to participate in any such proceed ing, but also that England would not evea attempt to persuade Spain to con form to the views of the Congress. The French envoys, Montmorency and Cha teaubriand, against express instructions of their caurt, urged forward the inter vention, and were supported by the other powers, notably Russia. The conse quence was that a French army invaded Spain, penetrated as far as Cadiz, over threw the Cadiz constitution, to which the King had given his consent, and left him free, but the country enslaved. No stretch of interference had ever gone so far as this. These events, culminating with the proceedings at Verona, crave rise to what has been called the Monroe doctrine. At Verona the subject was agitated of attempting, in conformity with the known wishes of the absolutists of Spain, to bring back the Spanish colo nies of America to subjection to the mother country. This alarmed Eng land. In a speech delivered in the House of Commons in February, 1523, Brougham said that “the war of the allies is not against freedom on the Ebro, or freedom on the Mincio, but against freedom—against freedom wherever found; freedom by whatever means achieved, by whatever institutions se cured.” Mr. Canning, then Foreign Secretary, caused the scheme concerning the colonies to be communicated to our government, with an intimation that England would join us in resisting the project. The notification was received with joy at Washington, where the al liance was already causing some uneasi ness, and the popular cry of the people was embodied in the President’s mes sage, issued a short time after. It was a blow which effectually put a stop to the then designs of the alliance. The me3 sage then'declared, first, that the United States would regard any attempt on the part of the allied powers to extend their system to this country as dangerous to our peace and safety; second, that we would regard the interposition of any European power to oppress the governments of this con tinent, which we had recently recognized as independent, or to control their destiny in any manner whatever, as mani festing an unfriendly disposition toward the United States. There was another declaration having reference to a contro versy with Russia and England concern ing Northwestern boundaries—to wit, that the continents of America, by the free and independent condition which they have assumed and maintained, are not henceforth to be considered as sub jects of colonization by any foreign power. These declarations have been promi nently discussed once or twice since. The government of Yucatan, in 1848, offered the United States the sovereignty of that country if we would undertake to sup press the rebellion of the Indians against the whites. If we declined, Great Brit ain and Spain were each in turn to be of fered dominion upon the same condi tions. President Polk strongly recom mended the acceptance of the offer and the occupation of the country, lest some foreign power should get it in contraven tion of the Monroe doctrine, which the President thought should by all means be sustained. A bill was introduced for the purpose, in the discussion of which Mr. Calhoun analyzed the doctrine in his plain, logical style, reviewing its origin, defining Its terms, and maintaining that it did not apply at all to the case before the Senate. Mr. Mon roe had in contemplation oppresnon and interference on the part of the allied powers. The declaration with reference to colonization, Mr. Calhoun asserts, was never submitted to Mr. Monroe’s Cabi net (of which he was a member), but in serted in the message by Mr. Adams, then Secretary of State, on his own responsibility, and thereby caused a coolness on the part of England. The question mere nearly arose at the time of the Maximilian fiasco in Mexico. That was at a time when we had all we could attend to at home, but Secretary Seward protested with France against her part in the matter until our war closed, and then the French troops were withdrawn, leaving Maximilian to his fate. The doctrine, indeed, has never been anything more than a declaration. It has not acquired the force of policy, and has never been maintained by arms or indorsed by Congress. The House of Representatives once, by resolution, re pudiated the second and third divisions of it. To conform to the popular inter pretation of it would involve us in all the quarrels of the republics of Central and South America, provided they formed, or threatened to form, alliances with any foreign power. The suggestion that we should prevent, by any means,the foreign incorporation of a company for the construction of a ship canal from the Caribbean sea to the Paci fic ocean is a most extreme and unwar ranted interpretation of the Monroe doc trine, even viewed in the most patriotic light We fear no foreign power, and if we ever get so weak that we do, the owner ship of the Panama canal will not save us. One thing more: It is said (though I cannot now lay my hand on the authori ty) that the United States of Colombia, in its grant of privileges to the proposed company, provides for a forfeiture in the event of any foreign government ob taining control of the franchises. A great power may override those provis ions, of course, and when that occurs, will be time, if ever, to interfere. Mean while we need not tremble. If all the dogs were sent to Lapland, the lawyers to Lie beria, the donkeys to Brayzil, the lovers to Sigh-beria, the editors to News-zeal-land and the key hole angels to Peer-u, the eternal fitness of things would have equilibrium down to a fine point “Vascoe; or, Until Death,’ by Mrs. B.

She left the car and went to a store, where she made several purchases, but on putting her band in her pocket for her purse, found it had disappeared, and in its place found the diamond ring that had attracted her attention. Taking it to a well known jeweller, he pronounced it worth ssoo* It is supposed the setting of the ring caught in her pocket and it was stripped from the finger of the thief.

AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH, CONCERNING THE SOUTHERN GEM PIANO. A certain toy and stationery dealer of this city, who occasionally dabbles in the Piano and Organ trade, haying recently (and for that matter for the past ten years) en deavored to injure the reputation of our popular Southern Gem Piano, we herewith present such facta concerning Its manufac ture, quality and sale, together with in dorsements from disinterteted purchasers and others as will place its standing forever be yond the power of would-be competitots to injure either by concealed or direct attack. The Southern Gem Plano is a good, hon est piano, made by an honest manufacturer, and sold In an honest way. We know this, we guarantee it, and plant ourselves square ly upon this assertion. We challenge any man in the trade, or out of It, to prove to the contrary. Yea, more, we inrite all who have aught to say against the Southern Gem Piano to speak out freely. The honest truth won’t hart it. We want the question settled. If it is a good and desirable piano, then we are war ranted In continuing to sell It. If not, then we ought not to sell it. We have no doubts in the matter our selves, but we want the public, ooce for all, to be convinced beyond all question that it is either all we recommend It or that It is not a piano they can safely buy. No half-and-half business for ua. Full Indorsement or none. We claim further that the Southern Gem is not only a good piano but is also the beet moderate price Piano produced in America. A strong claim, but we mean just what we say. We have tested every piano of the same or even somewhat higher cost that has been made, and among them all not one gives equal value for the money. Asa matter of business it is to our interest to give our patrons the best piano for the least cost. The Southern Gem exactly fills this bill. When we can find one that fills it better, we will have it. We are just that sort of wide awake men. It’s what we are keeping house for. We know where the good pianos grow, and we know how to 6hake the tree so that they will fall on our side of the fence. The SOUTHERN GEM PIANOS are manufactured specially to our order by J. P. Hale, of New York. The trade mark “Southern Gem,” under which we have sold them for ten years past, Is our exclusive property, and we are the only parties autho rized to sell under this name. Every SOUTHERN GEM PIANO now sold bears also its Maker’s name above the key board, in addition to the words “Southern Gem.” Our toy and stationary friend (?) styles ♦hem “Stencil” Pianos, but he deviates by a large majority. The name of the real maker never appears upon a “Stencil” Plano. The maker’s name is on the Southern Gem, and it is a name that no dealer need be ashamed to have on his pianos. The name Southern Gem is our trade mark, and It is put there for our benefit and pro tection. We could sell the Pianos, as many others do, as the J. P. Hale Piano. The reason why we don’t is, that J. P. Hale gives no exclusive agencies for his Pianos, and, therefore, our energy in push ing them and advertising would go in part for the benefit of other dealers likewise sell ing Hale Pianos. We therefore contracted with Mr. Hale to give us exclusive right to sell them under name of Southern Gem. We have adver tised the Southern Gem, made for It a reputation and a large sale, and, through this word trade mark, have secured to our selves the benefit of our work and money. We never claimed to be the makers, nor have we ever tried to conceal the maker’s name. Our catalogues and circulars have plainly stated who made It. Here is the information given in our catalogue: J. P. Hale, the manufacturer of the SOUTH ERN GEM PIANOS, has an immense factory, with capacity for producing 150 Pianos weekly, and is the largest and most successful manu facturer in the United States. Daring the past twenty years he has produced over 58,000 Pianos, which are scattered in musical homes from Maine to Mexico. One fourth of all the Pianos produced in America are made by J. P. Hale. Why have they had such an immense sale * Because they are made for the people and sold at one-half less than other makers ask. J. P. Hale's system of business is No Advertising," No Expensive Ware rooms. No Traveling Agents. No Commissions, No Retail Trade First-class work, and such extraordinary low prices to large Wholesale Dealers as enables them to sell first-class Pianos at less than half the price asked by other Makers. Everything square and above board. No mystification. No misrepresentation. No deception. The best houses In all large cities are selling Stencil Pianos, and have been for the past fifteen years. Such well known firms as W. A. Pond & Cos., 8. T. Gordon, Brannard Sons, Lyon <fe Healy, Root & Cady, Btorey <& Camp. W. W. Kimball, Jno. Church <& Cos., D. H. Balbwin, do It. In fact, they ail do It. It is simply absurd to claim that it is not aa honorable and legitimate trade. Honest and sensible men don’t talk any such nonsense. We enlarge on the subject and probably waste more powder than it is worth,because we want the public to be fully posted and save our ever haring to say anything more about it We beg all who ever expect to buy a Piano to read what we have written. We are writing for tkem—not under the false pretence of “protecting them from imposi tion,” but to open their eyes and satisfv them that the Southern Gem Piano is the piano they want If they won’t take our word for It, possi bly they will that of the disinterested pur chasers who have tendered us the following testimonials you the southern gem PIANOS. Savannah, Ga., February 9. 1881. I have a “Southern Gem’’ Piano purchased by me from Messrs. Ludden & Bates seven years since. All who have used it say it is a good instrument.

On December lfih. 1872, I purchased a Southern Gem Piano, No. 17,000. from Messrs. Ludden & Bates. It has been in constant family use ever since. I have had it tuned only six times in nine years It is note as perfect in tone and action as the day I bought it, if not improved. I would not exchange it for a 5400.00 piano of any make. D. J. Ryan. Corpus Christi, Trx., January 10, 1879. The Southern Gem Piano I purchased from you came to hand in due time, and to the credit of the manufacturer I must say that the piano is all that can be desired. The tone is such as we hare a right to expect of the queen of instruments; powerful, yet soft and sweet; vehement, yet sympathetic. In fact the able performer can call from it precisely that style of music which he wishes to pro duce. The frame is the same as that of all other good and genuine pianos, the model is perfect, the veneering solid rosewood, which one can at onoe perceive by its color and grain. The price at which you sell this in strument is remarkably low, and no doubt you seU a great many, and will sell thousands more. Wishing you that success which you so richly deserve in placing in the homes of our Southern people good and reliable pianos at a price very little above that of humbug pianos. I remain, truly yours, Pbof. E. L. Facpel. Yorkville. S.

It is a “gem” with which I am de lightel Ir appearance and more particularly in construction and workmanship, it exceeds my < xpeetations in every particular, while the tone, considering that It is perfectly new la pure and powerful. A Baltimore lady stopping in this place who is familiar with the pianos of Knabe, Btieff,Chickering, Steinway and Decker pronounces it equal to any on which she has ever performed nor did she change her opin ion after I told her the price. 1 think I shin be well pleased with it, and I hope it maVh* the means of your selling others in this section. Mrs. Mary J. Ingold. Sardis, Mias., November 10,1877 The piano was received a few clays ago and we are very much pleased with it.
