THE REPUBLICANS COMPELLED TO YIELD. The President States His Views- The Caucun Committee’* Report— Au Executive Session to be Held To-Day—Senator Davis on the Debts of the Virginias—The Duty on Knit Wooleua—The Receipt* of Six Per Cents. Washington, May 3.— Your correspon dent went to the White House to-night and got a correct version of the letter written yesterday to Senator Dawes by President Garfield, who kept no copy of the letter, but gives the substance as follows; The President wrote that he favored a free bal lot and fair count, and would encourage it, not only in Virginia, but in every State North and South, but he would not assist to elevate a man who, as editor of a daily paper, continually at tacks and defames the President himself and his administration. The President re fers to Gorham, the Republican nominee for Secretary of the Benate, who is editor of the National HepiUAican, and who attacks the administration because of its condemnation of the star route swindle. The President declares he will not consent to the Senate laying over any nomination. The Republican caucus agreed to hold an executive session to-morrow. The Repub licans have backed down and are beaten. The Vice President laid before the Sen ate the unfinished business, being the resolu tion for the election of officers of the Senate. Mr. Davis, of West Virginia, then took the floor with a speech upon the debt ques tion between the Virginias, premising his remarks with the expression of his regret that the speeches made by the Senators from Virginia and Ohio (Messrs. Mahone and Sherman) should have compelled him to discuss in this chamber what he con eidered to be a purely local matter. The debt question in West Virginia had never been made a political one, and he regretted that the Republican Senators should make statements reflecting upon the action of the Democrats of that State on that question. Little or nothing had been done looking to the adjustment of the debt question be tween Virginia and West Virginia until 1871. In the early part of that year the Legisla ture of West Virginia had, upon his motion, agreed to a resolution for the appointment of a commission to treat upon that subject. Those commissioners had proceeded to Richmond, but had met nobouy with whom to treat. Since that time nothing had been done, to the best of his knowledge, by either State officially with reference to the vexed debt question. la 1871 Vir ginia had passed wuat was known as the funding bill, which had arbitrarily set aside two thirds of the debt to the old State, and one-third to the new State. The Governors of Virginia had uniformly, since the pass age of that act, held that they had no power to answer the calls of West Virginia for a settlement of the debt question. The com missioners appointed by the State of West Virginia had reported the following facts: That nine tenths of the improvements for which the debt had been created had been located within the State of Virgin'a. That Virginia had contained 41,000 square miles and West Virginia but 20.000. That at the time of the separation Virginia con tained a population of 1,122,000, aud West Virginia 374,000 —less than one-fourth. That the taxable property iu Virginia had amounted to 630.000.000, and in West Vir ginia to but 60,470,000 —less than one-sixth. In view of these facts, could it be con tended that West Virginia was responsible for one third of the debt 1 Continuing he said that whi'e the debt of the Virginias was large, it was not very considerably less than 620 per capita, while the debt of the United States was double that. He predicted that Virginia with her present prosperity could and would pay her debt In the future. Both of the Virginias would pay their debts, and he regretted very much that his frieDd from Massachusetts (Mr. Dawes) should encourage the party in the old State that does not want to pay the debt at all. After a short debate on the question of the debt of the Virginias, the Senate adjourned until to-morrow. THE REPUBLICAN CAUCUS. The Republican Senators met in caucus this morning to receive the report of their committee on the scope and order of busi ness to be transacted in the proposed execu tive sessions. A discussion ensued, which had not been completed when the hour for the assembling of the Senate arrived, and the caucus adjourned to meet again this afternoon. The attendance was small this morning. The discussion is understood to have been confined mainly to the question as to what shall be considered contested ca=es to be withheld from action at present. This afternoon the report of the Commit tee of Seven was amended so as to make its doubtful features clear, and was finally adopted, with entire nnamlmity, in the shape of a resolution, which provides in substance that executive sessions 6hall be held forthwith (the first one to-morrow) for the transaction of business in the following order: , First. The reference of nominations now on the table to appropriate commitees. Second. The consideration of pending treaties. Third. The consideration of all nomina tions heretofore or hereafter reported from the Senate committees, which are not ob jected to by one Republican Sena f or from the Btate to which the office appertains, or from which, In case of a national or territo rial appointment, the comlnee is to be ap pointed. It was expressly provided that as soon as the uncontested cases shall have been dis posed of the caucus shall again assemble for the purpose of determining what addi tional business shall then be considered by the Senate, and that although in the mean time a contested case, as above defined, shall Dot be allowed to impede the transaction of other business, the caucus is left wholly UDfledged as to Its future action with te gard to them. No specific allusion wss made to-day to Judge Robertson’s nomina tion, or to any other individual case among the contested nominations, nor was any ac tion taken or proposed with regard to a change of the caucus candidates for the Senate offices. THE DUTY ON KNIT GOODS. The United 8 ates Supreme Court his granted a stay of mandate and leave to file a petition for a rehearing in the woolen knit goods case of Vietor vs. Arthur, collector, and as a result thereof the Treas ury Department has revoked the circular No. 32, of March 29th, and instructed customes officers to collect duties on worsted stockings, and other classes of knit goods, at the rates which were in force before said circular was issued, viz: fifty cents per pound spe cific, and thirty five per cent, ad valorem. THE STAR ROUTE INVESTIGATION. The j Star to-nfght says: ‘Tt is not the in tention of the Postmaster General to dis arrange the method of the star route in vestigation to attend specifically to contracts in which ex- Senator Dorsey is supposed to have an interest. The Postmaster General con templates writing a letter to Mr. Dorsey setting forth this in effect, but with the as surance that not only his, but all of the star route contracts will be the subject of inves tigation.” REDEMPTION OF SIX PER CENTS. The amount of six per cent, bonds re ceived at the Treasury Department to day for conversion into 3K percents, was 67.- 868 250, making the total amount to date, 680^690,150. A WAR SHIP LOST.

London, May 3 —The Admiralty have re ceived a telegram from Montevideo stating that the British war sloop Doterel was blown up on the 2: h of April at Sandy Point, in the Straits of Magellan.

The Do terel was s sloop of 1,137 tons. Provided the great organs of the body are not Irreparably injured, there are few dis eases that Tutt’s Pills will not cure.

The French are expected to immediately occupy Porto Farina, twenty five miles distant from the town of Tunis.” Paris, May 3.—Two thousand French troops htive landed at Biserta. The reason assigned for the occupation of that place is that it was the centre from which the Krou mirs drew their provisions, and that its oc cupation will complete the blockade of the Kroumirs and facilitate the revictualling of the French forces.

SAVANNAH, WEDNESDAY, MAY 4, 1881. HOME CROP PROSPECTS. REPORT OF COMMISSIONER HEN DERSON. The Outlook for Georgia’s Farm Products and Staples—Searching For a Rice Fertilizer—The Tribute Paid for Stores to the West—The Large Use of Fertilizers. Augusta, Ga., May 3.—Hon. John T. Henderson, State Agricultural Commission er, was in Augusta to day. He said the wheat and oat crop in Georgia will be short this year, the heavy rains of la6t fall pre venting planting and largely reducing the acreige. Corn is twenty days backward. Cotton planting is progressing rapid ly and will be completed this week. In Middle Georgia the plant is growing off well, and fine stands in some counties are reported. The acreage in cotton will be considerably Increased, and lower prices are looked for next fall. The peach crop In Middle and North Georgia will be about a half crop, the blight from freezes being reported more general and severe in South Georgia. Pears, apples and grapes are un hurt. Judge Henderson said that the Agricul tural Department is now giving more atten tion than formerly to rice planting. He was anxious to discover a fertilizer for rice growing purposes, aud had turned over the subject to Prof. White, State Chemist, who would soon be ready to report a formula for rice fertilizer. Western hay, corn and meats are being heavily Imported by Georgia farmers this season at high prices, which, Judge Hen derson says, is lulnous. Labor is satisfactory this year, and the tide of immigration is setting in strongly from the Western States, the severe winters driving the people southward, where the seasons are more propitious and the lands more productive. One hundred and fifty thousand tons of fertilizers were sold in Georgia this season. Judge Henderson is in favor of reducing the fee for inspecting fertilizers from 50 to 25 cents per ton.

London, May 3. —In the House of Com mons to day Mr. J ustin McCarthy gave notice that he would move at an early day that the act! in of the Irish Executive in arbitrarily arresting a member of Parliament, and proclaiming the city of Dublin, is an abuse of powers granted by the coercion act, and is calcu lated to arouse dissilection and mar the re sults of remedial proposals. In the House of Commons to-day Sir Charles W. Dilke, Under Foreign Secreta y, said the government were aware of the im portance of Bzerta but were doubtful whether even a large expidecture of money on dredging would make it available as a harbor. The permanent occupation of Bizerta, he said, would be quite* outside the scope of the objects of the French ex pedition as they were stated to Lord Lyons by M. Bartheimy St. Hilaie, the French Minister of Foreign Affairs. The Daily A J ews says : “If we are correctly informed, Prince Bismarck, or whoever is striving to bring about a conference for the purpose of devising a more stringent mode of dealing with political conspirators, has sent an invitation to England, and has thus imprudently invited a refusal, as England, following the example of France, will certainly not participate in any conference designed to shield unpopular governments from the consequences of their unpopularity.” Negotiations for anew Anglo French commercial treaty begin to attract great at tention. The existing treaty will expire six months after the promulgation of the French tariff law, which will take place this week, 60 that the treaty will lapse in No vember uuless anew treaty is concluded and ratified now before the dissolution of the Chamber of Deputies. England will, iu November, be confronted with a general tariff which will be almost prohibitive. Her only means of self-protection then will be retaliatory duties on French wines, brandy, silk and articles de Paris. The British agent has been in Paiis for some time ascertaining the exact effect on British manufactures of the new basis on which the French seem willing to negotiate a treaty. Until his report is received England will not probably open formal negotiation on the subject. THE NASHVILLE RACES. Second Day ol tbe Blooded Horse AsMoclation’a Meeting;. Nashville, Tenn., May 3.—This was the second day of the races of the Nashville Blooded Horse Association. The weather was clear and pleasant, but the track was heavy from last night’s rain.

Time 5:33% The second race, for the Railroad stakes, one and three quarter miles, for all ages, was won by Bancroft, Kimball second and Jim Malone third. Time 3:16.

Washington County—Farming Ope ratious-The Fruit Crop-Sander*- ville and Her Improvement*— County Newspapers—Herald and Mercury—'The Old aud the New Fostmasters-Brancb Railroad-A Michigander la Search ot Wisdom. Sanpersville, May 2 .—Editor Morning News: Everybody in this section seems to be hope ful of good crops this year. The outlook has improved wonderfully within the last ten days. Many gloomy forebodings have been dispelled, and many a miud that seemed bewildered as to the uncertainties of the future, has been re lieved. However, as a people, we are too ready to rejoice, and too easily depressed by our im mediate surrounding. The fairest prospect may vanish, and tbe darkest cloud may with draw without any seeming cause. Let all our rejoicing be in moderation, and be prepared for the worst. While all the cotton is not yet planted,for here as elsewhere the farmers are behind, still that which is in the ground is growing rapidly and chopping time will soon be on hand. The sec ond planting of corn is doing well, and if “Gen eral Green” does not take possession of the fields, a good yield for the acreage is confident ly expected. I find the oats better here than in any section I have visited recantly-more sown and better stands. I nave met with hut few fields of wheat. Along the line of my journeys but little attention seems to be given to smaller grain, but the cotton rows are large and numerous I am glad to learn that the peach and other fruit crops are not half so badly damaged in this county as was first reported. The early varieties of peaches, I am told, promise well. Some of the finest orchards in Georgia are in Washington county, and they have been j ieid ing handsome profits. Preparations are being made for rapid transit to Northern markets. The largest orchards, I believe, are those of the estate of W. M. Moses and the Harmon or chard. There are others, perhaps, of equal merit, but not so well known. Capt. Mathis, I know, has an orchard of the most select varie ties in the neighborhood of Tenniile. Sandersville has greatly improved since my iast visit. A number of new buildings have been erected, and among them a spacious town hall, known as Watkins’ Hall It is neatly fin ished and roomy. The Gilmore House, one of the most, pleasant homes in the city, has beeD somewhat improved. The Hernia and Mercury are both moving along in their quiet way and doing good Ser vice. One great misfortune attends the pub lication of a country paper. The are of ne cessity compelled to take subscriptions on time. The necessity arises not from the ina bility of the people to pay, but in deference to and at the dictat e of a miserable custom which has taken possession of the mind of the people. There is not a man who subscribes for a country paper, with the intention of ever paying for it, who could not pay for it iD ad vance just as well as to wait to the end of the year. The reason they do not is just because they have made no calculation to do so If they could ever be educated up to this point it would be a blessed day for country journal ism, as well as the whole country. The pa pers would greatly improve In every depart ment, and in none more than in the character of its and these utterances would be more' respect ed and esteemed by the people because of their untrammeled and independent character. Financially I suppose the newspapers of Sand ersville get along as well as those of any sec tion. and they are held in as high esteem by the populace. Our most excellent agent at this plac*, Post master E. A. Sullivan, has been superseded in his office by Dr. Roberts, a gentleman of cul ture, and capacity to fill the office well. Asa number of citizens expressed it, ‘ If Mr. fculli vau had to be superseded, they knew of no one who would be more acceptable to the people, or who would discharge the duties of the office better than Dr. Roberts.” Mr. Sullivan has filled the office for eleven years, although a Democrat, and to the satisfaction of both the government and the people Under the super vision of Horace Maynard the Post Office De partment exhibited no mercy to a man who did not fall down and worship Baal, and he ap pointed a negro, without fitness or character, to supersede Mr. Sullivan. But Sambo failed to make the necessary bond, and hence Dr. Roberts was appointed, although a Democrat, and Mr. Sullivan retires in a few days. The Sandersville Branch Railroad is a paying institution. It is only three miles long and with the fare at twenty-five cents its passenger tariff is considerable, while the freight to and from Sandersville has increased over fifly per cent, over last year. Dr. Irwin the gentlemanly Superintendent, runs the road on an economi cal plan—he himself being conductor and agent. An engineer and train hand are all that are required to manage the transportation de partment. It has been a great advantage to the public as well as a paying investment to the stockholders. On my way hither I met with a Michigander who was out taking notes on the situation in Georgia—Rev. Mr. Ellwood, of Port Huron. He impressed me as a gentleman of culture and honest purpose in seeing things for him self, albeit he had passed through the manipu lation of one fuller of Atlanta, and his v sion was not as clear as it would otherwise have been. Still I was glad to meet him, and to demonstrate to him that we were not all heathens or cut-throats. He passed on to Savannah to spend a few days. We hope the Forest City made a good impression upon him. His views had been greatly modified, and he will return home with better conceptions of Bouthern life than ever before. Jack Plane.

SINCE the Introduction of this Spool Cotton into the American market, its success has been unprecedented. No other brand of thread has ever met with the same amount of public favor in the same space of time. The “O. N. T.” manufacturers were the first to recognize the importance of the Sewing Ma chine and to make a six-cord cotton, which has ever since been the recognized standard for machines. All the improvements in machinery that the inventive genius of the nineteeath century has produced have been adapted by the manufac turers of “O. N. T.” At all the great International Fairs of the world, “O. N. TV has been awarded the highest honors. The “O. N. T.” factories at Newark, N. J., and Paisley, Scotland, employ 5,200 operatives —make sufficient thread daily to go around the world four times. Consume 140 tons of coal daily. The manufacturers of “O. N. T." are the largest manufacturers of Spool Cotton in the world. A full assortment of this Spool Cotton can be had at wholesale and retail at DANIEL HO GAN’S.
