The Lease to the Central Formally Kail tied—President Phtnizy’M Re* P°r-The Reason* for the Lease Set Forth—The Dividends to be Paid on the Stock. Augusta, May 11.—The stockholders of the Georgia Railroad, at their annual con vention to-day, unanimously ratified the lease of the road to Mr. Wm. M. Wadley alone, although it is understood that the Louisville and Nashville and the Central Roads and prominent railroad magnates in dorse and share in the lease of the Georgia. The directors were instructed to pay $3 50 dividend on the 15th of July and *3 50 in October, after which $2 50 per share will be paid quarterly. This lease is all important to the Central, and secures to Savannah a direct line to the West, thereby making her the South Atlan tic outlet for Western business through Georgia. President Phiniay was re elected, and Mr. Ferdinand Phlnizy takes tbe place of Mr. George Jackson on tbe Board of Di rectors. The reports of the officers of the road were read and adopted. Georgia and Central stocks are in de mand. General Alexander says Georgia is worth 180. He leaves to-morrow for New York. A combination of the Memphis and Charleston and the East Tenuesse, Virginia and Georgia Roads is rumored. The stocks of all are strong. At the above mentioned convention of stockholders of the Georgia roads, the re port of President Phlnizy stated as follows: A comparison with the business of the previous year shows au increase in gross earnings of *200,440 28, and in expenditures of *188,993 58. The Increase in expend!- tures is largely due to tbe Improvement in equipment. During tbe year we have bu'lt in our shops 170 freight cars, purchased 6 conductor’s cars, 2 sleeping cars, paid for 4 passenger coaches, and purchased 3 new freight locomotives of large capacity. There has been expended in the ex tension of tbe elevator building, machiue shop and car shop, *22,583 52. The large increase in the volume of tonnage has also necessitated the movement of a larger number of trains, thereby adding materially to our expenses. At the same time the revenue has not increased in proportion to the freight. The mile tonnage for the year was 49,961,644 tons as against 37,085,356 tons for the preceding year, an Increase of 12,876,288 tons, 34 72 100 per cent., while the revenue from this source snows an increase of only 16 50 ICO per cent. The average rate of carrying freight was 2 13 100 cents per ton per mile, and for the previous year 2 46 100 cents. This Is due principally to a reduction in rates by the Commission, and partly to the low rates at which competition forced us to haul through freight. The direction has submitted to the Commission, neither for the reason that the Commission has not in jured us, nor became the company had no alternative but to submit, but be cause it was believed that reflec tion, observation and experience would soon convince the Legislature and the peo ple that it was a mistake to attempt to au thorize such great interference with railroad property, and that Important modifications of the law might be hoped for at au early day. The direction believe that certain iirepealable provisions of our charter in reference, to freight and passenger tariff can be invoked for our protection whenever the mandates of the Commission become in tolerable. Notwithstanding the reduction in rates the prospects of the company are tnccuraging. Tbe business is constantly inert asing, and with the completion of the improvements now in progress expenses will be materially lessened. President Phlnizy, in explanation of the reasons that necessitated the lease to the Central Railroad, also submitted the follow ing. SUPPLEMENTAL REPORT. To the Stockholders of tfte Georgia Railroad and Banking Company: It is not many years since the maxims of commerce, applied to railroads, kept them disconnected with each other. Whenever two roads entered a town or city, the com mercial interest of the town or city, as it was then conceived, required a break in the line of transportation. The first step in the development of rail road business was to close such gaps, by making actual physical connection of dif ferent roads, while their respective manage ments still remained distinct, and might be unfriendly. The next step was agreements between roads, physically connected but legally distinct, for through transpor tation and ratable division of freight. The latest phase of development is the union under one head of both rails aLd management of several or many dif ferent roads taking up the commerce of ex tensive areas of territory. W’ittaout, per haps, tbe conscious recognition of the fact by the workers themselves, this stage of de velopment has wrought out in commerce the analogy of a great river in nature, gath ering up in Us main chancel, and through the branches which flow into It on its right and left, all the waters of some vast basin acd its surrounding bills and mountains, and discharging them at its mouth into the exnectant ocean. This phase of development is going on now with tremendous energy. All condi tions of railroad situation are made to yield to it. It is the inevitable result of the strug gle of the enormous volume of freight pass ing between the remote parts of a vast country. In order to handle it fully, such arrangements must be made as to render its flow free and unobstructed, rapid and smooth. This effort to form un broken lines of great length and reach, whiie it 6eems to be in tbe natural and proper direction of railroad development, appears also to be irresistible. Any single road necessary for tbe accomplishment of such a scheme is sure to be acquired for it. Any single road which might thwart or obstruct tbe general scheme is sure to be strangled. Two methods for acquiring particular roads for such general schemes are p r ac ticed. Either, on the one hand, to purchase or lease the road; or, on the other hand, to buy up a controlling interest in its capital stock. When the purchase or lease method is adopted, the road to be affected has a voice in the transaction; It is bought or leased upon its own terms and with such stipulations as are intended to protect its owners. Where the control of the desired road is obtained by a purchase of its stock, the company, the corporation, is Ignored, and there is no protection provided for its stockholders. Iu this way stockholders other than those in the combination, might find their road operated in tbe interest of a combination alien to their interests. In this connection it is proper to remark that it would not be necessary in any given instance to buy up a majority of the stock of a corporation in order to obtain practical control of its corporate affairs. The con centration of two fifths of tbe stock in any one hand would doubtless control the action of any meeting of stockholders which it might be practicable to hold. The Georgia Railroad has been in great peril of this latter fate for some time. A most Important and valuable link in the movement of freight between tbe North west and tbe Southeast, its controllias been much coveted. Could it have secured its independence for ail time, or for an indefi nite period, it might have been well for it to maintain its independent position; but lts independence was greatly imperriled In the manner above indicated. Indeed, there Is reason to believe *hat tbe process of baying up its stock, for the purpose of controlling the company’s action, had at one time be cun In earnest. Had it succeeded, one half, perhaps three-fifths, of the slock would have been at tbe mercy of the other half or two fifths, concentrated and con trolled in a foreign interest. The consciousness of this peril to the stockholders, as well as the opportunity of making a most advantageous arrangement for the present and future generations of stockholders, has Induced the directors. In whom reside the powers of the corporation for that purpose, to lease, for th® period of ninety-nine years from April 1, 1001, the corporation’s privileges and means of trans portation, and to transfer to the lessees the control and enjoyment of the corporation’s other property for tbe same period. The instrument of lease is too voluminous to be inserted in this report, but it will be duly spread upon the proper public records, acd subject to examination by all interested in it In the meanwhile, it is perhaps well to state in general terms Its main provisions. The term for which the lease is made is ninety-nine years from April 1, 188 The annual rental stlpula ed is *600,000, payable in two equal aemi-annual install mSe Privilege of using tbe Georgia Rail road aim its branches and our Interest in the Western Railroad of Alabama, and all our roiling stock, is granted by the lease. 0U Th rifht to collect the income of our mVa*sM&M West Point Rail road, In the Rome Railroad, and In the Port Royal and Angusta Railway, and to vote those stocks is granted to the lessees. The title to all the property remains in j the Georgia Railroad and Banking Compa | ny. Besides the rental, the lessees pay alj ' taxes except the charter tax on net income, and pay also the Interest on the Western Railroad of Alabama bonds. The lessees are to keep and return the ; property in first class condition. The lessees indemnify the company against all claims for damages on account I of the use of company’s railroad. The les sees deposit $1,000,000 of bonds in value as \ security for the performance of their under | taking, which deposit is not to be dimin ■ isbed in amount, or impaired in value. Besides other remedies and redress, the company reserves the right to retake pos session of its property on the breach of any of the stipulations of the lease. The company is to pay-the principal and interest of all Its bonds, except the interest of the bonds of the Western Railroad of Alabama. The company retains for Its own use Its banking building, privileges and business. \\ bile the Board of Directors conceive that their first duty is to the stockholders, and that they would have reason to be satisfied, if the arrangement which they have made, redounds, as they believe it does, greatly to the interest of the stockholders, still they have the additional gratifi cation of feeling that the arrange ment is most fortunate for the cities, towns, villages, and rural districts affected by the Georgia Railroad. It has, in the opinton of the directors, both removed the dangpr of having the traffic of the West and Northwest with the outer world di verted from this region to At’antic ports north of Georgia and Carolina, and has also insured a greater volume of that traffic In this direction, for the parties to whom the lease has been made are deeply interested in conducting that traffic through the port of Charleston. Only tbe future can determine whether this latter view of the advantages of the arrangement to this part of the country be correct, but tbe present, the very present, demonstrates tbe advantages of tbe arrange ment for the stockholders themselves. To day, under the impulse of the lease, the stock is higher than it has ever been in the history of the company or in the anticipa tions of the stockholders. The directors are so well assured of the soundness and advantages of the situation, and that the annual rental, together with the profits of the banking department, will enable tbe company to meet the interest of the company’s bonds and provide a sinking fund for the extinguishment of the princi pal, and leave a sum sufficient to pay from the present moment annual dividends of 10 per centum per annum, to be increased in the future as the bonded debt is paid off, that they declare it to be iu their opinion the true policy from this time forward to pay its stockholders quarterly dividends of Q 4 per cent. Appended herewith is a statement of our income and liabilities under the lease: Rental SBOO.OCO Interest bond Port Royal Coin press Company 2,000 Estimated net profit cf bank, after paying expense and taxes 25,000—627,000 The bonded debt, deducting *24,- 000 maturing July J, 1881, which we propose to pay. will be $2,598,000, upon which the annual interest wiil be 161,860 Dividends to stockholders 10 per cent, per annum 430,000—581,860 Balance for sinking fund *15,140 Respectfully submitted for the board. G. 11. Phinizy, President. May 5,1881. NEW YORK’S LOST TRADE. Action of the Board of Trade and Transportation In the Matter— liailuay Legislation Helled on to Change the Natural Channel* of Commerce With the West. New York, May 11. —The Bosrd of Trade and Transportation tc-day adopted a report submitted by the Committee on Legislation showing the rapid trerense of exports from New Orleans, and a corresponding decline of tbe same articles from New York. The report sajs that our port Is to day full of shipping, tbe greater part of which are grain vessels, at present unable to obtain cargoes, while at New Orleans there are more loading for European ports than are loading here, and that steamships and sailing vessels are now almost da ly leaving this port in ballast for New Orleans to obtain cargoes there. The cause of this, the report declares, is to be found in the high railroad rates kept up by tbe pooling system. The committee say that the present rail road policy, If persisted In, will result In a permrnent decline of the commercial su premacy of this port, and recommends the enactment of a law prohibiting the pooling and charging of a greater rate for a short haul than for a long haul. To that the committee 6ay that an organ ized movement should be instituted among the business men of this State, without dis tinction of party, to secure nominations for the next Legislature of representatives of the people, both in the Assembly and Sen ate, and thwart the renomination of those Senators who at present represent only the monopolizing interests of their corporation. Copies of this report were ordered to be sent to the members of the Legislature, and the Chairman was authorized to appoint a committee to take into consideration the suggestion contained In the last clause of tbe report, and draft a plan of action in ac cordance with it. •‘STONEWALL’S” GREATNESS. Remarks of Hon. Jeflerson Davis at Metairie Cemetery, New Orleans. New Orleans, May 11.—At the conclu sion of the ceremonies attending the dedi cation of the tomb of tbe Association of the Army of Northern Virginia and the un veiling of the statue of Stonewall Jackson yesterday afternoon, at Mata rie Cemetery, Hon. Jefferson Davis, after complimenting General Lee’s address and congratulating the association on the completion of their tomb and monument, referring to Generai Jackson 6aid: “From the academic shades of the Military Insti tute he went forth to battle for the cause of State’s rights, self government and consti tutional liberty. Nobody expected that this quiet professor would have an opportu nity to show tbe great qualities be possess ed, and become the great hero of our war. “To-day he stands, in the opinion of Europeans, so far as I know It, the mightiest cbieftan of the Confederate cause. This silent professor constantly rose like a meteor over the battlefields of the Confed eracy. Only like a meteor in its brightness, for bis light was steady as the orb of day. It sbone to the very close, increasing In brilliancy, and in tbe trust which the people reposed upon it. Such was Jackson. He lived for his country, never doubting the justice of his cause, believing it was right eous and trusting in it. “He died, as 1 live.to day, feeling that the Confederacy ought to have succeeded, be cause it was founded on truth and justice. He gave his life for the whole country, and the country gave Its heart to Jackson. You, tbe men upon whom he leaned in the hour of danger, in honoring him, also honor yourselves.” Texas Murderer* Sentenced. Galveston, May 11.—A special from Wills’ Point, Texas, says: “In tbe case of the State vs. Tiel, the jury rendered a ver dict of guilty of murder in tbe second de gree. Tbe punishment Is Imprisonment in the penitentiary for thirty years. In the case of the State vs. White, the verdict was guilty of murder in the first degree, and the prisoner was sentenced to be hanged. After the verdict was rendered, White made a statement denying his guilt, but in the lat ter portion of his speech he virtually con fessed the crime. He was charged with killing a peddler near here several years ago. A motion for anew trial was overruled, and an appeal will be taken to the District Court.” Tbe Insurance Union. Cincinnati, Ohio, May 11.—The Insur ance Union, an association composed of the managers of the leading insurance compa nies of the United States, closed their ses sion here to night. It is said that the com panies represented have a capital of $55,000,- 000. The discussions tendency to an increase in rates, acd especially to a revision of the classification of risks.

SPARTANBURG’S CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION. The monument to the Conquerors of Tarleton—lmposing Ceremonies —A Grand military Pageant—Ora tions by Wade Hampton and INeun. Hlgginson and Francis— Relics of tbe Battle-Grand Illu mination at Night—The memorial movement—The monument—The Statue of morgan. Spartanburg, 8. C., May 11.—The day is lovely. The crowds are immense. Sleep ing room is not to be had, and the streets were filled all night. Nearly all the Charles ton military are here. The town is pro fusely and handsomely decorated, and the seats and platforms for the ceremonies about tbe monument are complete. Gov ernor Colquitt is unavoidably absent, owing to pressure of business and sickness. A salute of thirteen guns was fired at sunrise. Tbe crowd in the square constant ly Increased till ten o’clock, when General Hunt reviewed the military at the monu ment, with Lieutenant Baldwin and Lieu tenant Daniel Morgan Taylor, U. 8. A., as aids, and with volunteer aids from the Governor’s staff, and descendants of Mor gan’s officers. The display was very large and brilliant, and was composed as follows: The first brigade, commanded by Colonel Hugh 8. Thompson, of the Palmetto Regi ment, Columbia; the eecond brigade, by General C. I. Walker, of Charleston; a di vision commanded by General Jno. C. An derson, of Spartanburg. The column was headed by the splendid Fifth Artillery band from McPherson Bar racks, Atlanta; then followed the Washington Light Infantry, the German Artillery, the Montgomery Guards, the Charleston Rifle men, the German Hussars, Irish Volunteers, the Palmetto Guards, the Sumter Guards, the Carolina Rifle Battalion, the Lafayette Artillery and the German Fusiliers, of Charleston, the Governor’s Guard, the Co lumbia Light Artillery, the Richland Light Dragoons, the Richland Volunteer Rifles, of Columbia, the Catawba Rifles, of Rock Ilill, all tbe Light Infantry of Charleston, the Gordon Light Infantry, of Winnsboro, the Cadets, of the Greenville aDd the Kings Mountain Military Institutes, and the Spar tanburg Artillery. The streets and square were densely packed, and the military had great difficul ty in getting through the crowd. Many relics of the battle were shown, including the swords of Morgan, Pickens, Brandon and Hughes, Morgan’s Bible, Pickens’ por trait, and the pocket knife of Col. Graham, with fifteen blades aud implements. John Fielder, a hundred years old, was also on the platform, and looked quite vigorous. Distinguished inan on the platform present were Governors Haygood and Jarvis, Congressman John H. Evans, General A. M. Manigauit, Hon. W. A. Courtenay, Mayor of Charleston, Chairmau of Centen nial Committee, General Jno. Bratton, Gen eral A. Coward, ex-Governor M. L. Bonham, Judge Geo. BryaD. The Washington Light Infantry carried the battle fltg of Cowpens and a drum from Savannah, used at the same battle, and Col. Washington’s sash was worn by his great grandson on General Hunt’s staff. At twelye o’clock there was a centennial salute of one hundred guns. Chairman Courtenay then presented the monument to Governor Haygood, who accepted it in be half of South Carolina. Chaplain Porter, of the Washington Light Infantry, read prayers from a prayer book printed in 1768, and' found on the Cowpens battlefield. The “Star Spangled Banner” was then rendered by the baud. Then followed an address by Governor Haygood, the reading of an ode by Captain Bryan, “Hail Columbia” by the band, and the oration for the Southern States by Senator Hampton, who was greeted with great applause on his ap pearance. He spoke tenderly and eloquently of Cowpens, then and now, and plead for unity and peace now, as then, between the States. He ably and concisely reviewed Morgan’s histoiy and exploits before and at Cowpens, paid a feeling tribute to the private soldiers and the old Eutaw flag. The band played “America” and “Dixie.” Captain Bimons read the ballad of the “Blue Hens’ Chickenß.” Col.Thos. Wentworth Higginson.of Massa chusetts, delivered the oration for New England. After offering a hearty greeting from New England, he briefly reviewed the battle of Cowpens and paid tbeJlblghest tribute to Morgan and his men. He closed with an eloquent appeal for union and peace between the Blue and the Gray. [Great applause.] Hon. Wm. H. Francis, of New Jersey, spoke for the Middle States with great earn estness, and said be was proud that Morgan was born in New Jersey. [Great applause followed ] Senator Hampton delivered the regrets of President Garfield that he could not be present, aud promising to come at the next opportunity. [ Three cheers were given for the President.] The 6tatuc was then unveiled, amidst cheers acd the music of the band, by Misses Pickens, Simons, Smith, Graham, Courte nay, Brown, James and Colton, descendants of the soldiers of the Cow pens. It is a magnificent work of art, and will be illumi nated to night with eas jets bearing the names of Morgan, Howard and Pickens, and a grand display of fireworks. the memorial movement. The movement for the erection of a cen tennial memorial of the valor of the heroes of Cowpens took its origin in a pledge given by several members of the Washington Light Infantry, of Charleston, in 1856, to devote themselves to bringing it about. On April 22 of that year the battlefield was marked with a neat and appropriate monu ment, which was dedicated with splendid ceremonies under tbe auspices of the com pany above named. - *When tbe time came to fulfill the pledge His Honor Mayor Courtenay, of Charleston, was the sole survivor of tho e that gave It. With the joint support of the Washington Light Infantry and the people of Spartanburg the movement for the centennial memorial grew apace, and, finally, a joint resolution of Congress was passed, appropriating $20,000 for a bronze statue, of heroic size, of General Daniel Morgan, the hero of Cowpens. Concerted action followed on the part of the thirteen original States and Ten nessee. On the 7ch of October, 1880, the corner stone of the monument was laid at Spartanburg with imposing Masonic ceremonies by the Grand Master of South Carolina. Work on the monument and statue went forward rapidly, and to day both were unveiled as hitherto described. THE MONUMENT. The monument was constructed upon a design furnished by Col. Edward B. White, of New York. It is designed in a simple and unpreten tious style, which is certainly in keeping with the character of the hero of the fight, while the sturdy dignity of the architectu ral portion of the design is calculated arouse in the minds of those who behold that veneration and respect, and quiet, ad miration for its proportions, which the Doric order always commands. The monument is properly divided Into three different parts, viz: The base, the shaft, and the statue, which stands upon its abacus. From the ground to the top of the abacus is twenty-one feet. The monument has four bronze panels cast by Powers, of New York, on the north, south, east and we6t faces. These bear the names of Morgan, Howard, Wm. Washington and Pickens,the heroes of the fight, and appropriate inscrip tions. THE STATUE. The statue of General Morgan is the work of the well known sculptor, J. Q A. Ward, of New York, who was at wo*-k upon it nine consecutive months. It was cast at the foundry of Bureau Bros. & Heaton, at Philadelphia, and fulfills perfectly every re quirement of the joint resolution and of the contract with Mr. Ward. Tbe height is nine feet. Its weight about two thousand pounds, and its material a fine golden bronze, which will gradually darken with time and exposure to tbe air. Tbe weight of the body is supported on the right leg and root, the left leg a little behind tbe other, slightly bent, and its heel raised from the ground. The head is turned partly to the left; tbe left arm crosses but does not touch the heart, and the right arm hang 6 at the aide and somewhat behind the body, Its band holding a sword, of which the blade points directly to the front, tbe point a little depressed. The features are very noble In expression. The head to covered with a high cap of fur, having on Its left side a pompon of feathers. The dress to a loose frock ornamented with fringes on both shoulders down the front, and on the lower edge all round; and meet ing the pantaloons of apparently tbe same material, ornamented and fringed in corres ponding style. The feet are in moccasins. i A sheath on the left hip, a sash round the waist, and belts, partially bidden by the 63sb, indicate tbe rank of the wearer. A powder horn is slung on the right side of tbe body. The dignity and grace as well as lightness of the statue, which appears to be intended to represent General Morgan as ad vancing at the head of his men to tbe field of battle, or it may be engaging in and di recting the pursuit of the enemy, are re markable and worthy of all praise. RUSSIAN NOTES. The measure ol Political Reform- The Losses by the Anti-Jewlsh Riots—Further Outbreaks—An Im portant Arrest. Bt. Petersburg, May 11.—The Czar will hold a grand review to-day of all the troops here. Tbe losses by the riots at Elizabethgrad, In which the Jews suffered terribly, are officially stated at 2,000,000 roubles, and pri vate estimates put them much larger. POriadok publishes a letter from Odessa which says that in consequence of disorders trade there and In the district 1s completely paralyzed. Serious disturbances have oc curred at Bakee, In the Caucasus, between the Russians and Mussulmans, but the mili tary restored order. One Mussulman was killed and three were wounded. The riot ing lasted three days. The police have arrested a man who to believed to be a prominent Nihilist. He is charged with complicity in the murder of tbe Czar, and with planning the Little Gar den street mine. lie was present at the re cent execution in the space In front of the scaffold rt served for the officials and repre sentatives of the press. His sister has also been arrested. An official dispatch announces that order has been restored at Keiff, but that there has been further serious rioting at Vasili kow, where the people attacked the Jews at the railway station, when the latter were about to leave town. Troops had to go to the rescue of the Hebrews. Similar, but less serious excesses have occurred at Aranajeff and Krotog. The Czar has issued a manifesto reminding the people of the glorious government of his father, and the great reforms he aceom pllehtd. After alluding to the abominable murder of Alexander 11., the manifesto says: “In the midst of our profound grief the voice of God commands us to courageously assume the government of the country. Con fiding lu Divine Providence and In the power of the Autocrat for the welfare of the people, we have been called upon tto con solidate and defend against all attacks. We, in devoting ourselves to our high task, appeal to all faithful subjects to serve us aud the State, and faithfully and sincerely, in order to extirpate the horribly rebellious spirit which covers Russia with shame, to strengthen the faith and morals, and place the education of youth upon a sound foun dation, to eradicate all that is contrary to the sense of right and integrity, and to everywhere establish order and justice.” Vienna, May 11. —Tbe Austrian Consul Gentral at Keiff reports to the Foreign Office that the warehouses of Jewish mer chants in Keiff, and other places in South ern Russia, have been, since May 8:b, a prey to pillage. He calls the attention of the Austrian commercial community to these facts, warning them to observe cau tion in their business transactions with Southern Russia. THE TUNIS TROUBLE. The Invader* Close to tbe Capital— St Hilaire’* Circular— Cairoll In terrogated. London, May 11. —A limes dispatch from Rome says: “There is strong indignation here against the French proceedings in Tunis. Premier Cairoli in the Chamber of Deputies yesterday, on being asked by Signor Guieceoli regarding the rumors cf the Italian Consul’s intrigues In Tunis and the report of his recall, Interrupted him in the middle of the question, and said,‘We never even thought of recalling Signor M&cclo. The accusations against him are false.’ “Signor Avalleto.the nominal leader of the Right, had given notice that he would call the attention of the Minister of Marine to the necessity of having Italy’s forces, espe cially the navy, ready against aggression or for upholding the dignity of the natioD.” Paris, May 11. —A dispatch from Tunis states that the French force has arrived at Djekeida, six leagues from Tunis. It will proceed In the direction of Basdo, although there is no question of its entering Tunis. The dispaten continues: “This movement is expected to facilitate the negotiations with the Bey for tbe conclusion of a treaty of guarantees, which, while respecting the rights of European nations, will insure se curity to the Algerian frontier and provide against a renewal of anti-French intrigues.” A Yellow Book on Tunis aud Algeria will be distributed amongst the Deputies to morrow. It includes the circular of M. Barthelmy, St. Hilaire defining the object of the Tuuis expedition as tbe definite paci fication and delimitation of the English frontier of Algeria, and the conclusion of a treaty guaranteeing Algeria against frontier raids, aud French interests against disloyal intrigues. “Prudence,” it says, “obliges France to watch the solicitations which may be press ed upon the Bey, and which might become the source of grave embarrassment to Algeria. The causes ot the change in the Bey’s feeling towards France would be too delicate a matter to investigate. The pre sent crisis is due to the persistent war waged during the past two years against all French interests in Tunis.” The circular justifies the French refusal to recognize the Porte’s sovereignty, and says; “The expedition meets the approval of Europe wherever prejudice does not blind men’s eyes. All civilized nations will profit by the change which France will effect. There is nothing to prevent us from doing for Tunis, without conquest and without fighting, what we do In Algeria and what England does In India.” BRITISH TOPICS. Hrndlauglt’s Ca*e-Au Effort to be Made to Bankrupt Him—The Rlgbt ot Clergymen to Nit In the Common*—Archbishop Croke aud the Home Knlera. London, May 11—It is expected that the Parliamentary oath’s bill will not come on in the House of Commons till after the Whitsuntide recess. Sir Stafford Northcote’s resolution, adopted yesterday, prevents Mr. Bradlaugh from making any further efforts within the House. In the House of Commons to-day, the Speaker read a letter from Mr. Bradlaugh, protesting against his forcible ejectment from the House. The Speaker said the let ter would appear in the notes to-morrow, and that it would be competent for any member to raise debate on it as a question of privilege. Mr. Bradlaugh Is reported as saying that he claims exactly the same legal right to en ter the House of Commons as he did before the passage of the resolution excluding him, against which he has made a formal written protest. The plaintiff in the action for penalties against Mr. Bradlaugh has given notice of his Intention to apply for leave to sign judgment and to issue an execution, with the object of bankrupting Mr. Bradlaugh. The latter will resist the pendiDg decision by the House of Lords. The second reading of the bill to permit clergymen to sit in tbe House of Commons was defeated to day by a vote of 110 to 101. It is believed that when Archbishop Croke replies to Mr. Parnell’s letter, a formal meeting of the Home Rule members of Par liament will be convoked and the existing breach healed. The Pullman Southern Car Company Louisville, Kl, May IL—The meeting of the stockholders of the Pullman South ern Car Company to-day resulted in the election of the following directors: Geo. M.

STANLEY MATTHEWS. Hl* Fete to be Decided To-Day— Conkllng’s Backers Working for Delay—The President Unmoved on the Robertson Question—Another Executive Session-Southern Nomi nations Confirmed—Various Capi tal Topics. Washington, May 11.—Stanley Mat the ws’ case was considered in the Senate to day, Messrs. Edmunds, Bayard and Ed gerton speaking against his confirmation, and logalls and Bherman for it. Messrs. Edmunds and Bayard Insisted that Mat thews was too much of a politician for the Supreme bench, and Senator Bayard’s speech had a decided effect on the Demo crats. Matthews’ friends still confidently claim his confirmation. A vote is expected to-morrow. Conkling and his friends will try to ad journ from tc-morrow to Monday, as they want to gain time. Mrs. Garfield is quite sick, and the Presi dent refuses to see anybody, but, it is said, he is as firm as ever against any compro mise ou the Robertson case. The arguments advanced to-day in execu tive session by those Senators who spoke agaiust tbe confirmation of Mr. Matthews were in substance that his opinions on the subject of governmental control of cor porations, and especially his well known views concerning the constitutionality of the Pacific Railroad funding act are such as to threaten the reversal of the last Su preme Court decisions on these and similar questions, and also that the existing va cancy on the Supreme beDch should not be filled by another Ohio mas, but rather by a citizen of Illinois or some other State in cluded in the circuit to which anew Justice to to be assigned. On the other hand it was argued in favor of confirming the nomination, that Mr. Matthews is thoroughly fitted for the ap pointment by reason of his hign private character and eminent legal ability, and that so far as geographical objection is concern ed it should have been raised (if at all) against tbe confirmation of Chief Justice Waite, but is not properly applicable to the nomination of the successor of Justice Swayne, who was appointed irom Ohio many years ago. SENATE PROCEEDINGS. Mr. Kellogg called up the resolution offered by him some days ago, calling on the heads of the executive departments for the names of clerks and employes employed In their respective departments, and other in formation relative thereto. Mr. Brown offered an amendment calling for additional information as to whether such clerks and employes are white or col ored. The resolution and amendment were laid over for future action. Mr. McDill offered a resolution that, here after, the Official Register of the United States shall contain, in addition to the sta tistics required by Section 510 of the Revised Statutes, information as to the Congression al district from which each officer, clerk and employe iu the service of the United States Is appointed, and the date of his ap pointment. Laid over for future action. The Senate then, at 12:10, on motion of Mr. Dawes, went into executive session. CHANDLER STILL UNDER FIRE. The Senate Judiciary Committee to-day took up the nomination of Wm. E. Chan dler, to be Solicitor General, but, after con siderable discussion, concluded to postpone action upon it to another meeting. It. is ru mored that this delay Is the result of a de sire of a majority of the committee to avoid further complications in regard to executive business until the caucus’ efforts to adjust the existing complications shall have been fully exerted. YESTERDAY’S executive session. Most of the time of to-day’s executive session of the Senate was devoted to a te dious discussion of the question of the re moval of the injunction of secrecy from the recent proceedings on the Chinese treaties. It resulted in the reconsideration of the recent vote by which authori ty was given for the publication of Benator Hoar’s speech, and the subject was then dropped. Later in the session the nomination of Stanley Matthews to be As sociate Justice of the Bupreme Court was taken up, but the consideration of it was only partially completed to-day. It will be resumed to-morrow. SOUTHERN NOMINATIONS CONFIRMED. The following Southern nominations were to day confirmed by the Senate in executive session: Jno. B. Stickney, United Btate3 Attorney for the Northern district of Florida; Charles M. Wilder, Postmaster at Columbia, 8. C.; A. Newton Kimball, Re ceiver of Public Monies at Jackson, Miss. The Senate also confirmed the nomination of Michael J. Cramer, of Kentucky, now Charge d’.Affaires in Denmark,to be Charge d’ Affaires in Switzerland, vice Nicholas Fish, resigned.

Rome, May 11.—The Georgia Press Asso ciation met here to day, seventy-five papers being represented, making the largest meet ing ever held. The association was welcomed by Col.
