The session cf the Senate yesterday was mainly occupied by Mr. Mahone in a lengthy reply to the criticisms made upon himself by his colleague, Mr. Johnston, and other Senators. He was particularly severe on Mr. Brown, of Georgia, and commented on that gentleman’s record 6ince the opening of the war. At the conclusion of his ad dress, which at times evoked hisses and ap plause from the crowded galleries, he re ceived the congratulations of Mr. Conkliog and other Republican Senators. At the examination In New York jester, day into the making of counterfeit dairv products, G. F. Hecshaw, a produce broker, testified that he had visited various oleo margarine factories, and found the employes exceedingly filthy, some of them working h*lf naked. The product was made from pea nut lard, alum, acids, etc. It was suggested that makers of the article be compelled to give it a distinguishing color. Destructive floods are reported in the val ley of the Piatte river, in Nebraska. The Pope has been Informed by a lady at a private audience that the day and hour have been set for the murder of himself and Cardinal Pecci. The Supreme Court of the United States met yesterday but being without a quorum, in the absence of Mr. Justice Field, im mediately adjourned. The Calcutta correspondent of the London Time* thinks it will be laapofsible to evacu ate Cacdahar before autumn. The season is far advanced, and to move the troops to India would be dangerous. A Candahar dispatch says a formidable re bellion prevails in Herat. At last accounts Avoob Khan was virtually besieged in the sitadel. The Ameer is thus afforded an op portunity lo occupy Candahar province, and fifty thousand of his troops are on the way from Cabnl thither. A London dispatch says the police have lnformatioii strongly tending to confirm the complicity of three Irish-Americans In the plot to blow up the Mansion House. Detec tives are searching for two of them, Mooney and O’Donnell, on the continent. Coleman, the third, is thought to be en route for America on the steamer Australia. A dispatch to the Manchester Uuar diati states that there are indications that the Porte may be induced to amend its pro posals as to the Greek frontier so as to make them conform pretty nearly to the suggestions of the Berlin Confer ence. The Daily Neva says the English Government has reached no defi nite or irrevocable conclusion on the sub ject, and that Turkey and Greece would run a gfleat risk, the one by delay and the other by hasty action. The people of Greece are reported to be making sacrifices to gain the frontier,and the King and Minis try will likely cast their lot with the nation. The stock market yesterday was stroDg generally throughout the day, and closed within a fraction of the highest figure touch ed. Sales were 441,000 shares. In the Lawson-Labouchere case the jury failed to agree. Hugh J. Jewett has declined the Presi dency of the New York World’s Fair. The Age nee Hum comments on the favor able recc ption given by the Russian press to the proposition to repress the Interna tionalists by the co-operation of the powers. It urges the importance of the step upon Switzerland in particular. The Crown Prince of Prussia, addressing German resi dents of Moscow, stated that the old friend ship of Russia and Germany would be main tained. He also alluded to the doss inti macy between himself and the Czar. The Iremendous earnestness of the movement to build railways into Mexico is indicated by the statement that the Mexican National Company (Palmer A Sullivan) has contracted for a large num ber of locomotives and several thousand freight cars to equip the proposed road from Laredo to the City of Mexico, and to Manzanilla on the Pacific coast. Jay Gould states that the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Road will be completed to Laredo this summer, giving direct con nection with this proposed Mexican line. The Texas and Pacific and Galveston, Harrisburg and San Antonio also are both expected to reach El Paso within a year or so, and from that point the Mexican Central, or Boston Company, is rapidly pushing toward the capital of Mexico to meet the work now in pro gress from that end. Little Mahone, in his speech yesterday, boastfully proclaimed to the world, “I am, by my convictions and sense of hon or, what i am.” Well, some men have ▼erv accommodating convictions, aDd a ▼ery loose sense of honor. The treach ous, crook-backed Gloster was that sort of man, and, in the extremity of his re morse, Jor lack of other refuge, sought consolation in the thought that he was at least true to himself, exclaiming; “ Richard loves Richard; that is, 1 am I. The Washington Star says the pressure for foreign appointments is unprece dented. Nearly every ex member of Congress thinks he should have a com fortable Consulate where there is nothing to do but draw the pay. In the way of ■would be Governors for the Territories, there are a dozen applicants for each place, with a like number of patrons ■who want to be Territorial Secretaries. It is announced by the Richmond (Va.) Dispatch that only $5,000 is wanting to secure to the University of Virginia the gift by Mr McCormick of the finest telescope in the world, an observatory and an ample endowment of the chair of astronomy, the whole valued at $125,- 000. But that amount must, be obtained by the Ist of April in order to secure the conditions of the gift. Pinchback, the saddle-colored staw >rt of Louisiana, says: "I don’t like New York nominations. I can’t io w where the lightning is going to * We ate all right now and at LOu Louisiana, but after the Rob ertson nomination there is no telling -what is in store for us.’’ According to the Washington Star, among the nominations to fill vacancies in offices in the South which will be sent to the Senate this week, will be the names of three or four colored men. Two colored men will gel place* in Georgia. No Fniding Bill at Present. The announcement that the President had decided not to call an extra session Of Congress destroys all hope for fund ing the $700,000,000 of 5 and 6 per cent government bonds, redeemable after May and June next, in bonds of a lower rate of interest for seme lime to come. In other words, the people will have to pay. for certainly some months yet, at the rate of, at least, $14,000,000 per annum, in the way of taxes to meet the interest on the national debt, more than they would have done bad Hayes not yielded to the demands of the national banks, and vetoed the refunding bill passed by the 40th Congress at its last session. This bulldozing of the de facto Execu tive by the banks is not to be passed by quietly, however. Senator Voorhees, of Indiana, has, as our readers have al ready seen, introduced in the Senate a resolution declaring, in effect, that the action of the banks was "hostile to the refuodißg of the national debt [at a low rate of interest, and an attempt to dic tate the legislation of Congress calcu lated to excite the alarm of the people ” The Republicans opposed the consid eration of this resolution on the ground that the present session of the Senate was for the express purpose of consider ing nominations, and not for any general legislation whatever. This was natural. The Republicans in Congress, according to their custom, steadily opposed the legislation for the many people and against the few favored bondholders and capitalists, which was the main object of this bill, and a Republican Executive prevented the saving to the masses of millions of dollars, and the cutting down of the revenues of the bondholders in proportion as provided for in the bill. Of course, therefore, the Republicans opposed, a9 they always will oppose, the keeping this subject before the people by dheussion. Nevertheless it is a sub ject which cannot be kept down. Mr. Yoerhees will certainly press his resolu tion at the earliest opportunity; and the discussion which must eventually ensue thereon will tend very effectually to open the eyes of the people to the true spirit manifested by the banks in their course, and to the dangerous power which they can exert when they see fit to combine. It is needless to say that such a discussion will not be to the ad vantage of those institutions. The press, especially of the West, is already devoting much attention to this subject. Our St. Louis contemporary, the Republican, in nearly every issue, expresses itself very emphatically and forcibly thereon. It thinks that it is well en- ugh to have this matter debated, and that the action of the New York banks ought not to be permitted to pass without an expression of Congressional opinion upon it. It well says: "What they did once they will do again. Ad mitting that the national banking system possesses all the merits claimed for it, the public cannot avoid a feeling of uneasiness at the extraordinary exhibi tion of power over the national legisla tion which their action in February pre sents, and no thoughtful friend of the system can but regret that audacious challenge to Congress and the country, at a time when the country was willing to let the banks alone. The banks did not like the refunding bill; but this did not authorize them to defeat it. Many laws are enacted by Congress which are distasteful to large bodies of citizens and corporations, but they have to be sub mitted to. The banks are crea tures of the very Congress whose legislation they attempted, in this case too successfully, to thwart. The bill, so offensive to them, had passed both bouses of the national legislature, and ought to have been beyond their reach; but by an exercise of a reserved power which they had never put forth before, they managed to extort from a weak Executive the veto which defeated it, and left an important and pressing subject of national concern unprovided for. If this action of the banks was legitimate and proper, let their champions defend it before the country; if it was not, Congress will have to decide what measures are neces sary to prevent its repetition.” It will be also seen by reference to our Washington letter, elsewhere published, that this subject is attracting attention in Washington and the East as well as in the West. Our correspondent states that the banks have not gained friends by their action, and many judicious persons, heretofore friendly to the banks, are convinced that the law which gives them power to contract the currency at pleasure is fraught with danger and should be repealed. This sentiment will doubtless grow with ra pidity, and by the time Congress meets again, popular pressure will be so great for a material contraction of the powers of these institutions that even a Repub lican majority cannot afford to disre gard it. Should the po'nt of order raised in the Senate against Mr. Voorhees’ resolu tion condemning the conduct of the national banks in their opposition to the funding bill, be decided adversely, the result will be to prolong the present executive session of the Senate for sever al week 9at least. Such a decision would give Mr. Voorhees the right to deliver his speech in relation to the vetoed funding bill, reviewing its history, and, from his standpoint, presenting cause of its defeat. This would becoDßidered by the Republicans as an arraignment of their party on this issue and they would reply. Senators Morrill and Sherman have signified their intention to reply. Other Democrats would, no doubt, re spond, and the discussion would be pro tracted indefinitely. While a majority of the Senators favor an early adjourn ment, it is quite within the possibilities that they may be compelled to tarry in Washington for some time yet. It must, says the Philadelphia Timet (Ind.), “seem like a leaf from his visiting statesman days to Garfield to see again in Washington the old familiar faces of Madison Wells, Mrs. Jenks, Pitkin, Pinchback and the odds and ends of that piebald throng that made his Lou isiana sojourn a beautiful picture to hang in the halls of memory. A reform ad ministration without these great and good men and women would be a pretty poor affair. But as their confessions are no longer dangerous, perhaps they may not find silence a commodity under Gar field as it was under Hayes. ” Stanley Matthews as a member of an association for the promotion of civil service reform, is a veritable curiosity. He was prominent in tbe use of the civil service for the payment of Hayes’ debts to the persons engaged in the arrange ment and consummation of the great fraud, if indeed his own nomination to the Supreme Court bench is not a part of that same system of rewards for loud smelling services. Professions of devo tion to civil service reform, from such a man, are affronts to honorable reform* ere. Tite Grant-Gonld Mexican Railroad Scheme. We learn from the New York World that a meeting of the directors of the Movie*" Southern Railroad Company was held in that city Thursday evening for the purpose of organizing the com pany. The following gentlemen, all members of the board, were present at the meeting: Gen. U. 8. Grant, Russell Sage, Jesse Seligman, Frank Work, Hen ry G. Marquand, Amos L. Hopkins, U. S. Grant, Jr., Senor M. Romero, J. H. Work, Stephen B. Musgrave, William 8. Warner and Gen. G. M. Dodge. The following officers were elected: Presi dent, U. S. Grant; Vice President, G. M. Dodge; Secretary, Jas. H. Work; Treas urer, Russell Sage. An executive com mittee was also elected consisting of Jay Gould, Frank Work and Russell Sage. A resolution was then adopted request ing General Grant to proceed to Mexico, with a view to representing the interests of the company in that country. General Grant expressed his willingness so to do, and would accordingly leave on Monday (yesterday) for Mexico. There have been intimations recently that this grand Mexican railroad scheme of a few well known New York capital ists, with General Grant as its figure head, is regarded with suspicion, if not positive disfavor by the people of Mexico. In view of the recent hostili ties and the existing relations between weak and dismembered Mexico and the powerful and grasping American repub lic, it is but natural that such a project backed by United States capitalists and entirely under the control of citizens of the United States, should be regarded with popular apprehension and distrust. While the Jay Gould organs are so sen sitive about M. de Lesseps’ Panama canal scheme, and are urging the government to enforce the Monroe doctrine to prevent its consummation, we must not be surprised at a simi lar exhibition of jealousy on the part of our sister republic, or that the Mexicans, in their fear of "annexation,” should endeavor to get up a little Monroe doctrine of their own. A cor respondent of the World, writing from the City of Mexico, evidently in.tfie interest of the Grant-Gould scheme, says: A New York paper desiring to excite prejudice against General Grant in this country seems to have brought forward the old bugbear "Annexation,” which always terrifies the old fogies and prov incials here, and its utterances are uti lized by the insignificant anti American clique to alarm the ignorant. Several Mexican journals have translated para graphs ot this sort which warn the Mexi cans against the incorporators of the Oaxaca Railroad. I read one in El Monitor Re pub! ko no which alluded to Aaron Burr's designs on Mexico and compared Grant to him! La Libertad says in reference to the Mexican Southern Railroad; "On the 25th of August, 1880, the Governor of Oaxaca obtained from the Executive of the republic a concession to build a rail road from Anton Lizardo to Huatalco, on the Pacific coast. This contract was never published until M. Romero trans fet red it to an American company and that asssociation, the chief of which is General Grant, has not yet accepted the original contract, but desires certain modifications, claiming among other privileges that of fixing its own tariff.” La Libertad affirms tiat these "modifi cations” are but so many "extra conces sions,” which must be ratified by the Federal Congress. In a word, La Liber tad has assumed a hostile attitude to wards Mr. Romero and his coadjutors, and proposes to get up an "Anti Ameri can” party in Mexico if possible. It will □ot come to much. New York appears to be perfectly sat isfied with the local ice crop of the past winter, and is congratulating itself upon having the hot months served up on ice at cheap prices. The crop is gathered, and a review of the store laid in contains some interesting items. It is found that over 2,000,000 tODS of ice have been gathered for the use of New York and Brooklyn, more than sufficient for one year, but the dealers say, not quite enough for two. This reservation in statement has doubtless some reference to the price of ice to consumers should next winter not yield a good crop. Of the whole store, the Knickerbocker Ice Company has housed 1,400,000 tons. This company operates upon a capital of $2,000,000, and has been in existence since 1855. It runs 500 wagons with 1,000 horses, and employs over 2,000 men, at an average pay of $1 50 per day. The Knickerbocker rules the ice market, and is all but a monopoly. Its officers say that ice will be delivered to retailers at $2 to $2 50 per ton, and to consumers at $3 to $4 per ton, or at twenty cents per hundred pounds. New York has a comfortable prospect of keeping cool next summer. Munificent Liberality. —The Phila delphia papers announce that Colonel Thomas A. Scott, late President of the Pennsylvania Railroad, has recently endowed the chair of mathematics in the University of Pennsylvania, now occu pied by Prof. Kendall, with $50,000. At tho same time he gave $50,000 to the Jefferson College, $30,000 to the Ortho pedic Hospital, and $20,000 to the chil dren’s department of the Episcopal Hos pital of Philadelphia. The money is now at the disposal of the institutions named, and the three gifts last mention ed are unconditional. The North Amcri can states that it has also knowledge of another gift of $50,000 to an educational institution in the South, of which au thoritative announcement will be made in a few days. The race trouble over the schools at Fairhaven, New Jersey, has grown more intense and resulted in the closing of all the public schools in that village. The trouble is of some weeks growth; the negroes who are numerous in the neigh borhood endeavored to force their chil dren into the white schools. The result was the destruction by fire, evidently in cendiary, of the school for colored chil dren. The negroes renewed their de mand, and to end the difficulty, the schools for white children have also been closed, and the youth of Fairhaven will go without any education whatever, on account of a difference of opinion on the color line. A Knight of the White Elephant. —The State Department has received notice through the United States Consul at Bangkok that the King of Siam, as a, mark of his satisfaction with th< descrip tions of his country in the book upon Siam and Java,recently published by Co 1 . Thomas W. Knox, has conferred upon that gentlemen the diploma and decora tions creating him a knight of "The Most Exalted Order of the White Ele phant” Colonel Knox is the first American upon whom this distinction has ever been conferred. The Grant Fund. —Mr. Oliver Hoyt, of New York, who was active in securing subscriptions to the $250,000 Grant fund, says he knows the general feeling of the subscribers to the fund very well, which will be, he says, to hand to General Grant the income of the fund during his life and permit him at his death to dispose of the principal for tbe benefit of bis family by will. Electrie Lighting of Streets. Mr. Edison has obtained permission from the municipality of New York to lay the wires for his system of lighting the streets by electricity, and he ia~un derstood to have gone vigorously to work with his preparations. The wires are to be laid under the pavements instead of extended over them, and of course a cable is demanded instead of a simple wire. The cable preferred by Mr. Edi son is a Swiss patent, invented in Cor taillod, in that republic, by Berthoud and Borel, The supply of this especial wire is rather limited at present, and this will tend to prevent the immediate general use of the lights. The importation of such a cable, moreover, makes it more costly, from customs duties and freight, than if it were prepared here, and arrangements are making for setting up an American factory, from which the supply of cable may in future be obtained. The Edison lamps are still to be manufactured at Menlo Park, as hitherto. The cables used are about half an inch in diameter, and will be laid under the sidewalks. The main or street cable is a leaden tube containing a single insulated wire, while the branches, one of which will be carried into each house that employs the light, consist of a three eighths of an inch cable made up of seven small wires, each insulated. These are distributed through the house to the lamps so that each separate light can be used at pleasure. The metre is in the cellar, and householders pay for their electricity as they are supposed to pay for their gas, according to the quantity used. Although that fact is not formally ad mitted, yet it seems to be pretty well settled, sayß the Washington Star, that the proposed World’s Fair will not be held in New York in 1883. The diffi culties appear to be, first, want of money; second, want of a suitable site; third, want of proper management; fourth, want of interest in the show itself. Up to the present time less than a million dollars have been subscribed in aid of the enterprise, a fact which of itself proves that the people do not care for the exhibition. There is plenty of money in New York, and if the pro posed exhibition were a matter that strongly appealed to the interest or the pride of the people of that city there would be no trouble or delay in raising all the funds necessary to make it a success. These provided, all the rest would follow easily and quickly enough. If, therefore, the matter is not already formally abandoned, it may as well be. It is clear now that if pushed forward it would drag along painfully, and finally result in such a halting and spiritless affair as nobody could well be proud of. The report that "hades” is substituted for "hell” in the revised Testament is full of comfort for a large class of per sons, and Bob Ingersoll is particularly pleased. Says this cheap philosopher: "Hades is a compromise. It is a con cession to the philosophy of our day. It is a graceful acknowledgment to the growing spirit of investigation that hell, after all, is a barbaric mistake. Ilades is the death of revivals. It cannot be used in song. It won’t rhyme with any thing with the same force that hell does. It is altogether more shadowy than hot. It is not associated with brimstone and flame. It sounds somewhat indistinct, somewhat lonesome, a little desolate, but not altogether uncomfortable. For re vival purposes, hades is simply useless, and few conversions will be made in the old way under the revised Testament.” Tbe brutal murder by a burglar of the man whose house he had entered, in Pennsylvania, last Wednesday night, ought to go far toward educating pub lic sentiment up to the point of demand ing more severe punishment for the crime of house-breaking. It is as clear ly established as anything can be by tbe circumstances attending it, that when a burglar enters a house he is prepared and intends to commit murder, if necessary, to carry out the purposes of his visit, and the law ought to be framed and enforced accordingly. In other words, burglary should be made a capital offence. Municipal elections will be held in Cincinnati and’ St. Louis in a few days. In Cincinnati a considerable portion of the Republican party is supporting the Democratic ticket on the ground that the Republican ticket represents the local rings. In St. Louis fully one-half the Democrats have pledged themselves to vote the Republican ticket, because the Democratic organization has been cap tured by the riogs. The warfare against rings and corruption in politics has, it appears, extended to the West, and the better elements of the people, without regard to party, are uniting for the elec tion of proper men to office. Boston is to bold a bicycle tournament May 6tb,when it Is expected to have fully six hundred bicyclists in line. The movement has made great progress throughout the North in the past year. The little town of Newport, R. 1., has a club of twelve hundred members, and nearly every village and town in Canada, New England and New York is bicycle mad. The disease is only slowly mov ing toward the South. It will be fash ionable here probably in the course of a year or two. A Good Word for the Cotton EX POSITION. The Philadelphia Record says: “Thecotton exhibition to beheld at Atlanta in October will doubtless prove the most important industrial ex position of the year. All the improved machinery devised to facilitate the planting of cotton and its preparation for market in the original bale, as well as the processes of manufacture after ward, will be subject to inspection. The cotton lords of Manchester, as well as New England manufacturers and South ern planters, will take this opportunity of learning their business from an im proved standpoint. Cotton seed from Bombay, Egypt, the Fiji Islands, Brazil and elsewhere will be planted, so that it can be seen growing beside the native variety. The best results may be antici f&ted, and we hope manufacturers in hiladelphia may find their interest in taking an active part in tbe enterprise having such important relations to the trade of the country.” Transportation of Silver Coin from the Treasury.— Secretary Win dom has issued the following circular: “In accordance with the provision in the act making appropriations for the sundry civil expenses of the government, ap proved March 3, 1881, to-wit: ‘That the Secretary of the Treasury be, and he is hereby, authorized and directed to transport, free of charge, silver coin when requested to do so; provided that an equal amount in coin or currency shall have been deposited in the Treasury by the applicant or applicants;’ until turther notice, fractional silver coin and standard silver dollars will be sent by express, free of charge, if so requested, under the regulations of this department. In sums of SSOO, or any multiple thereof; or by registered mail, free of charge, if so requested, in sums of S6O, or any multiple thereof not exceeding S3OO, at the risk of the person to whom seat.” THE TRUCE FARMING ASSOCU* TION. Larftc Meeting of Bryan, Liberty and Melntoeh County Earners— Steam Navigation of tbe Seaboard Rivere— Encouraging Prospects of tbe Enterprise lnteresting Ad dress by Rev. J. T. 11. Walte- Ltberal Oilers of Land lo Track Farmers. Midway, I.ibirty Cot'NTY, March 36. —Editor Morning News: The second meeting of the “Truck Farming Association” was held here to day. The attendance was large and the proceedings of much interest and importance. The President briefly addressed the meeting, and stated in his remarks in connection with the proposed navigation of the seaboard rivers of Bryan, Liberty and Mclntosh counties, that though the enterprise was yet in its infancy, yet it was a healthy baby, and by proper nour ishment would attain maturity. The report of the committee of eighteen, appointed at the last meeting to ascertain the amount of freight which could be assured the company contem plating the placing of a line of steamers on the rivers mentioned, and to learn the general sen timent of the people in regard to trucking, should the enterprise br consummated, though partial by reason of insufficient time for thor ough investigation, was extremely gratifying. Among other encouraging facts ascertained, two members of the committee gave in the names of ninety-eight farmers who had ex pressed a determination to commence the cul tivation of early \ egetables next season should the steamers be put on. Letters from steam boat firms which have the enterprise in ques tion under consideration, and which had been received since the last meeting, were read. Their tone was hopeful. One firm stated that they were confident they would put on a line of steamers by the fbst of next fall which would give satisfaction to all parties interested, and that a member or members of the firm would come down to this section next week for the purpose of inspecting the situa tion. The same parties sent by mail a large photograph of the style of steamer proposed to be put on the route. A committee was ap pointed to make ar angements for the recep tion of visitmg capitalists, which, after short consultation, reported that it had appointed a Bub-committee composed of the following gen tlemen: Messrs. John Axtell, E T. Roberts and W. A. Jones, who would meet the visitors in Savannah, escort them to the country and conduct them through the section of country intersected by the rivers; and also advised that each member of the association be assessed fifty cents to defray expenses incident to tbe organization. The report of the committee was unanimously adopted. A committee was appointed to prepare a con stitution and by-laws for the association. Several addresses were delivered during ths meeting. Rev. J. T. 11. Waite stated that he had iesided for a considerable length of time in New Jersey and was quite familiar with facts connected with the trucking industry of certain parts of that State. He said that there was a vast area there known as the “pine bar rens” of New Jersey, the soil of which was at one time considered so worthless that those who owned it could hardly have given it away. A short while previous to the war, however, a gentleman conceived the idea that by proper fertilization those barren ac es might be ren dered suitable for the growth of early vegeta bles and fruit. The enterprise was started, and the speaker said he knew the fact that in seven years from the commencement cf the late war this formerly abandoned and sterile land had become so valuable that those who could purchase farms there paid from 850 to $lB5 per acre for them A score of thriving towns were established in the section, along with all the advantages following the great influx of wealth and population; and this great im provement of the country resulted from the cultivation of vegetabtes and fruit for the great markets of the North. He stated, fur ther, that this section of New Jersey, which had so rapidly become attractive and prosper ous, began, shortly after the war, to retrograde and that now many of the fine houses ore closed and farmes deserted, which state of affaire resulted from the inaugura iton of trucking in the Southern States.whoseeariier products monopolized the markets. Many of the truckers who had help ed todeyelop the "pine ba-rens,” were now doing the same for other sections in Virginia, the Carolinas and Florida. For the lack of proper measures to attract their attention to this section, they had skipped over Georgia, although it poss; ssed advantages in soil, climate and situation superior to any that he knew of for the successful management of the trucking business, and that if this industry had done so much for the “pine barrens " of Jersey, what would its inauguration do for seaboard Georgia, which was, besides other points in favor, too far South to apprehend anyth ng like injurious competition He con cluded his remarks by an earnest appeal to all present to push forward the enterprise. There is a ne< and of and a desire for the speedy locatkn of experienced tru.-kers here, from whom many might learn facts connected with the business. To promote such immigration some of the land owners would furnish tracts for garden farms, rent free, for a term of years. Among them are the President of the associa tion, who would furnish two tracts of ten acres each, on his Limerick estate, and Mr. W. A. Jones, who would furnish three tracts, the same size, at Bellvitle. Both of these estates possess soil adapted to trucking, and are situ ated on navigable streams. A Iter a session of several hours, the meeting adjourned, subject to the call of the President, which will be made when the visiting capita’ists shall have arrived fn Dixie. The address of the Secretary of the associa tion is Dorchester; that of the President, Flem ing, fla. F. Successful Ascent of the Volcano El Fuego. — A telegram from Panama, March 12tb, says; “A successful ascent of the volcano El Fuego was made on the 13th, 14th aDd 15th of February by Messrs. Victor Matisen Guillerino Wyld, and Frank Herman. Great difficulty was found in the ascent, and still greater in the attempt to return. The Indians who accompanied the expedition posi tively refused to go beyond a certain point, as they said hi 9 Satanic Majesty resided in the crater, and would become anarv at any intrusion on his privacy, and probably shake down the mountain as a punishment for their temerity. The crater was found emitting huge volumes of sulphurous vapor and smoke, and only a favorable wind enabled the party to reach the summit and effect any ob servations of that region of perpetual activity. fftop pgttttra.
