Later in the day Turner accused Shuttles of following hun up armed. Upon hearing this Shuttles readily gave up hs pistol. In the afternoon .buttles invited Turner to take a drink with him. After taking the drink Shut les walked out in front of Turner.and as he did so Turner without saying a word, fired upon Shuttles twice lu quick succession, both balls taking effect in the back. Shuttles died in five minutes. Turner was lodged in jail. The Meriwether jail is not secure, and if left there he will probably make his escape.” Post-Appeal: ‘ Information ha3 been re ceived in this city of the capture of the famous outlaw, w iley Redding, in Mississippi, “is subsequent escape. It appears that, a few days ago, a negro was arrested in a Mississippi town for robbing the mail. The author ties could find cut nothing about the prisoner except that he claimed to be one John Thomas. In a short time, however, he wrote a letter to a colored woman in Atlanta, asking her to send him some money. This fact and a faithful description of the criminal was at once forwarded to Atlanta and it became ap parent from the description and from the fact that the woman written to was Wiley Redding’s sister, that the prisoner was no less a peisonsge than the notorious Wiley Redding himself. Later intelligence states that Wiley has escaped, and his whereabouts are not now known. He is certainly one of the most desperate and dangerous criminals that ever baffled the police of this or any other city. He is one of the very cirminals who have succeeded in escaping from the Dade Coal Mines, and richly deserves hing ing.” Tboma*,ville Enterprise: “Some time last July, Duncan McMillan, an industrious colored min, went off to work on the railroad. His wife consented that a colored woman named should take a little daughter of Duncan's, about twelve years of age, but very small for her years, with her to wbere she lived on the plantation of Messrs. H J. & A. T. Mclntyre. Very shortly after the child got there—not more than two or three weeks —she was seen going down the road towards Monticello, and the woman, , after her, and calling to some others to catch the child, which, however, none of them did. as they thought she had been badly treated. The woman followed the child off, and returning some time afterwards said that she could not catch her. She sent word to the child’3 mother some weeks afterwards that the child had run away. Duncan came home as soon as he could, but.haviog a large family de pen-lent on his labors, he did not get hack till some few weeks ago. Since his return be has made diligent search for the child without avail. He has walked all around through that portion of the county, but so far cannot find a trace of his child. He says she was not very bright for her years, and could not possibly have gone away so as not to be heard of with out direction and assistance. He is too poor to pay detectives to woik up the case, but is most anxious for any information that will lead to the discovery of the fate of the child ” Griffin .Vetes: “One of the most lovely places In Braiding county is the carp pond of Mr. A. A. Wright in north Griffin. Those of our read ers who have never visited it can form little idea of its beauty. Mr. Wright, who is a genius in everything, has devoted to the improve ment of this place his best skill ani energies. We must confess to some neglect in not giving more prominence to an enterprise that has at tracted so much attention and favorable com ment in Georgia, and which has even filled columns in influential Western papers. The pond covers an area of nearly an acre and is supplied with water by a large, bold spring that boils up in the centre, and water conveyed by underground pipes from a number of springs several hundred feet distant. The dam is constructed in the best manner, being f flanked up on the inside of the best heart pine iimb r, with clay backing, on which is planted Bermuda grass Inside the pond, near one corner, is a dry well eight feet in diameter and ten feet deep, octagon shaped, at the bottom of which is a large hydrau’ic engine or ram that forces water through pipes all over the residence of Mr. Wright, where it is used for the various purposes needed, kitchen, bath room, etc., keeping up a constant fiow of water without the use of tanks or reservoirs, having the same pres-ure of an elevated tank thirty feet high and also keeping a beautiful fountaia continu ally playing seven jets of water fifteen feet high. Around the top of the dry well is a strainer or seive of wire cloth made to order in New York, through which the waste water escapes from the pond (thereby preventing the escape of the smallest carp), thence from tha bottom through a waste pipe which conveys all surplus water and waste from the pond and rani ixvo large weeping willows stand in the centre on two islands built octagon shaped and sodded with blue grass. The willows are the lai'gest and hsndsomest in the county and are exceedingly ornamental. Around the pond, on the dam, are other large weeping willows, which make the place look cool and pleasant. On the upper side are planted a row of mag nolias and weeping willows, and in the pond, spread on the surface, blooms the beautiful yellow water lilies, yellow iotus. curcutian recurrata, calladium esculantums, and a variety of other ornamental aquatic plants. In the depths of the pond swim the largest and finest carp in the State, ranging in size from tha tiny ones to those 23 and 24 inches in length. Of all sizes, there are a million of carp in the pond, and in them a very hand some profit for Mr. Wright.” Florida Affairs. Vegetables are scarce in St. Augustine. There was a slight fire in LaVilla Wednes day. The prompt efforts of the citizens avert ed a serious conti igration. Fernandina is enduring the cow pasture plague. Isaiah P. Kimball, of Bath, N. H., died at Formosa, Orange county, last week, from the effects of drinking ice water while heated. The Norris grove at Spring Qarden will yield 1.0(0,000 oranges this year. The Masons of Orlando Lodge No. 69 are preparing for a grand basket picnic on St. John's day, June 21, 1881. Arrangements are being made for an ex cursion from Orlando, Maitland, Sanford and other points to Sc. Augustine and return on the 14th instant. Special rates have been se cured. A number of new settlers from Wisconsin will arrive in Volusia county early in the fall. A preliminary survey of another new rail road from Orange City to Blue Spring has been made. The Spring says that Messrs H. M. Moss, G. T. Butler and R R. Thompson, of Green Cove Spring, while on an alligator hunt on the Oek lawaha last week, had the misfortune to lose a pair of $350 mules. It is not kntwn w hether they broke out of the lot of their own accord or were stolen. In Volusia and contiguous couaties the sea sons, says the Orange City Times, have been excellent so far, and there can be no complaint from the farmers either about the seasons or the weather. On the other hand Middle and West Florida are sorely in need of rain. There were shipped from YVelborn, from May Ist to 24th, 834 crates of vegetables, mostly beans, which sold at two dollars and three dol lars per crate. The new Baptist church at Apopka, fifty two by fifty-three feet, is quite a good sized build ing. The frame is up, and the material on the plage. The contractor expects to complete the building within one month. From the 29th of April up to June Ist there was shipped from Live Oak 1,446 crates of vegetables, weighing 43,443 pounds. 2 *,433 crates, amounting to 3,232.78* oranges, were shipped from Tampa since the 6th of Oc tober by the Tampa Steamship Company a vessels. A few shipments of oranges were mode in other vessels. It is thought that dou ble that amount will be shipped next seasoD. Tampa Tribune: “One thousand three hun dred boxes of pe. cil boards have been shipped from this port in the past six months. There are but two mills in the county cutting cedar at present—those of Mr. D. M. Blue, at Alafla, and L. M.

The Fire Brigade Powerless—lUany Street* Swept Clear ol Building*— Untold Confusion and Thrilling Sight*—The Los* Put at Fully Two Million*. Quebec, June 9. —One of the most disas trous fires which this unfortunate city has been afflicted with commenced last night, and was only got under control at 6 o’clock this morning. The first alarm was from the corner of St. Oliver and Bt. Claire streets, at ten minutes before 11 o’clock. A few minutes later the bells from the Basilica of St. John’s and St. Roch’s church rang out a second alarm, and tbe whole force of the fire brigade was soon upon the ground. The reflection of the flames was so visible that ln a short time half of the city appeared to be attracted to the scene, and by half-past 11 o’clock all the avenues around and leading to the fire were so completely packed with people that It was next to impossible to force a way through them. The scene In the vicinity of the Cor llagratlon was one of utter confusion. Half of those present seemed panic stricken, and three fourths of the others only added to the confusion by running against each other, and really contributing to the de struction of property, while believing they were helping to save it. Parents, partially clothed, harried along ln every direction, with infants wrapped in bed clothing, ln their arms. Cows and horses, let loose from burning stables, rushed, half maddened, through the crowds, or stood, dazed by the uproar and confusion surrounding them. The fire originated in a stable on Bt. Oli ver street, near St. Marc street. The flames quickly spread to the surrounding wooden buildings and to the streets above and be low Bt. Oliver. Lstourelle, Bt. Marc and Richelieu streets were quickly a mass of fire for some hundred feet of each in ex tent, the flames from either side of the streets overlapping in the middle and com pletely closing them to all traffic. Scenes common to all great fires were readily discernible. At this stage even the police and firemen weie to a great extent demoraLzed. Daring roberbles were carried on freely In full sight of everybody. L'quor stores and private dwellings attacked by the flames were ransacked for liquor, which was openly drunk by the low characters who infest the locality. The sparks, which everywhere flew from the burning wooden buildings, were in them selves a terrible source of danger to the rest of the city. It was no uncommon sight to see men’s coats and hats ablaze from burn ing pieces of shingles which lighted upon them. The fire brigade allege that four wooden houses were found on fire by them when they arrived upon the scene, and that, with water absent and unattainable for some twenty minutes, it was impossible for them to obtain the mastery. Nothing was saved of B*. John’s Church but tbe sacred vessels and some of the most valuable ot tbe plate and furniture of tbe sanctuary. The Are bad possession of the noble s’ructure iti almost a less space of time than Ic takes to read of it, and the finest and largest church ln the city was doomed to destruction. The church was worth at least SIOO,OOO, upon which the Insurance amounts to only SIO,OOO. At the foot of Jupiter street, below Berthlot Mar ket, tbe flames had crossed from the lower sides of 8t John street, and from this point they rapidly progressed westward along that fine avenue, keeping pace with the other division of the conflagration opposite. Nor was the fire now conflued to St. John street. At Jupiter street it spread south ward to Berthlot Market place, destroying property on Gabriel and St. Patrick streets, as far out as there were buildings to be de stroyed. The lower field alone stayed the progress of the fire. At Scott 6treet the fire ran upwards toward Grand Allee at a terrible rate of speed, there being no water, men, hose nor other appliances to stay it. Only the gap caused by the recent confla gration here stopped the total destruction of the whole street. It is impossible to describe the spread of the Dunes on every side. Briefly summed up, the streets consumed are: Running east and west in the Richmond part,principally on the South Side, Latourelle, St. Oliver, Riche lieu, Daguillon and St. John’s ward, in Montcalm, St. Gabriel, Norvelle and Breton. Running north and south tbe principal streets were Southerland, Dellgny, St. Clair, St. Marc and St. Genevieve, on the West Side, besides Jupiter street, in Montcalm ward, also on the We6t Side. Amongst the property destroyed on St. John street were a large number of handsome buildings used as stores and private residences. The Bat tery was called out, and rendered efficient service in saving property and In keeping order. It. is computed that there must be a loss of #2,000,000 between buildings, stock and furniture. Over 1,500 families are rendered homeless by the conflagration. At least 800 buildings have been destroyed. It is im possible to give a full and correct list of the sufferers and Insurance losses at the mo ment, but all the insurance companies doing business in tbe city will probably be heavy losers. The lire brigade and apparatus was quite unfit to cope with such a fire, and to Us weakness and the wretched water service the whole disaster is due. GLYNN COUNTY FAIR. More Rain—The Baby Show—Tbe Tournament—The Yacht Prlxea- Orllla First, Quickstep Second— Tbe Fair Ball. Brunswick, Ga., June 9.— The rain of to day interfered with the crowd and the raci s materially; in fact, the races did not amount to much. The attendance was bet ter, and it is now thought that the associa tion will clear expenses. The domestic department was very mea gerly supplied, but the fancy display was very good. The baby show was the feature of the day. There were twelve on exhibition, and four premiums were awarded. The tournament took place this afternoon. Mr. Betty, of Rome, took the flrst prize, and Mr. Moore, of Brunswick, the second. The crowd dispersed at eventide with a clear sky. Tbe grand ball Is now going on. The hall Is elegantly decorated and every body is ln good spirits. Tbe yacht race was decided ln favor of the Orilla, she receiving first money, and the Quickstep, of Bavannab, second. The Savannah boats and crews left this morning at 5 o’clock to continue their cruise. _ O’CONNOR’S SUCCESSOR. Hod. Soniuel Dibble Klected With* out Opposition—Mackey’s Bold Game. Charleston, 8. C., June 9 —The special election held to day in the Second Congres sional district, to fill the vacancy caused by the death ot Congressman O’Connor, passed off quietly, Samuel Dibble, the Democratic candidate, being elected without opposi tion. The Republicans abstained from voting od tbe theory that Mackey, O Con nor’s opponent, was really elected last fall, and that therefore no vacancy existed. The attitude of the Repubiicans had the fleet of making the vote no more than one-third of the usual Democratic vote. As far as known to night ihe rertilt is the same throughout the Congressional district. ROBBING THE MAIL. A Pouch Stolen in Chicago—fmpo:- unt Development* Looked For. Chicago, June 9. — A mall pouch robbery Occurred here last night. The pouch,which came from Grafton, West Virginia, over the Baltimore aud Ghio Railroad, and which was put ln a mail wagon at the depot, was missing when the wagon arrived at the office, and the back door of the wagon was un locked. It Is said that some sensational de velopments are expected ln connection with this robbery, which may give aid to the star route investigation. New Mexican Outlaw* Punished. Denver, Col , June 9.—A special to the Tribune from Espanola, New Mexico, dated Jane 8, says: “Two desperadoes named Knowles and Connera attacked Vorheea’ store with tbe intention of robbing, it and shot the proprietor twice, probably fatally. The latter returned the fire and the ruffians fled. A lynching party was immediately organized and atarted In pursuit. Knowles was shot dead and Coonsra was captured and returned to day and will undoubtedly be lynched during the night.” SAVANNAH, FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 1881. THE UNITED KINGDOM.

Cork, June 9. —Many of the bayonets with which the marines charged the crowd at Ballydehob were broken. Tbe people assembled on the top of a steep hill at one end of Ballydehob. The soldiers thought to fight their way through, and some of them hurled stones at the people. Quiet ness having been restored at Sklbbereen one hundred troops were about to quit, when a portion of the rails was found cut up. A later telegram from Sklbbereen represents that the town is again excited. The military are quartered Id the town hall. The magis trates have issued a proclamation prohibit ing the opening of liquor shops at night after 6 o’clock, until J une 15. London, June 9. —The Standard's Rome correspondent says: “The Pope is much impressed by the active participation of the Irish clergy in the land agitation despite his express injunction. He has laid the matter before the congregation for extra ordinary ecclesiastical affairs in order to recall the disobedient Bishops to duty.” In the House of Coipinons to-day Sir Wm. Harcourt, Home Secretary, replying to a question by Lord Bpencer Churchill, Conservative member for Woodstock, said the newspaper reports of the occurrences at Skull and Skibbereen are much exaggera ted, and that nothing serious had occurred within the last twenty-six hours. Sir Chas. Wentworth Dllke, Under For eign Secretary, replying to a question by Mr. MaeFarland, Liberal, said that, as the provisions of tbe treaty of Washington, un der which the Americans enjoyed the privi lege of fishing in the British colonial waters, could not, in any case, expire before 1885, the government was not at present in a po sition to consider the expediency of termi nating the treaty as far as It relates to the fishery question. Another arrest has been made under the coercion act near Macroom, county Cork. The people at Skull, county Cork, have hoisted a green flig on a pole and stationed an armed guard In from, of Father Mur phy’s. Mr. Forster, Chief Secretary for Ireland, telegraphs from Dublin that the rumor that tbe government intended to arrest Father Murphy was entirely unfounded. Such re ports, he save, are tricks to excite the peo ple. The Times, ln its leading article on the reassembling of Parliament, calls attention to the practical paralysis of public business, and points out that only a few weeks re main for the passage of the land bill through the House of Commons, unless it is to be sent to tbe House of Lords so late that they will have to choose between the responsi bility of Its rejection and passing it without discussion. In the House of Commons to-day a mo tion by Mr. Monke (Liberal), member for Gloucester city, that no commercial treaty with France will be satisfactory which does not reduce duties, was carried by a vote of 77 to 49. Sir Charles W. Dilke, Under Foreign Sec retary, in the debate said he agreed almost entirely with the terms of the motion, but strongly deprecated its being pressed at present. Cork, June 9, 9.30 p. m—A furious riot is now in progress. Mr. Stokes, a magis trate, has been severely lujured and three policemen have been badly wounded. The mounted police charged the mob and several pertons were hurt. Limerick, June 9 — Eight suspected per sons, belonging to Skull and Skibbereen, have been arrested under the Viceroy’s warrant and conveyed to jail here. Tbe corontr’s jury have returned a verdict that Mahoney, the farmer, who was killed at the recent riot at Bodike, county Clare, died from being struck by a policeman, at present unknowri, whom they found guilty of will ful murder. - THE NAVAL ACADEMY.

Annapolis, Md , June 9.—The Board of Visitors of the Naval Academy attended last evening a meeting of the Naval Insti tute is the department of chemistry, etc. Commodore Simpson read a paper entitled “A Proposed Armament for the Navy.” Rear Admiral Rodgers, who was in the chair, and Commander Robeson discussed tbe paper. The board also had a meeting yesterday evening, at which reports of sub committees were handed in, and the board is now engaged in preparing its final re port.

The Speaker corroborated this statement and said he had the money ln his pocket. Mr. Brooks hoped a committee would be appointed, attended by a stenographer and Sergeant-at-Arms, and have power to send for persocs aud papers.

They have passed a resolu tion as follows: Resolved, That the entry of the Cornell University crew be provisionally accepted to compete for the stewards’ cup, subject to their fulfilling the conditions imposed on all foreign crews and subject, to any objec tions that may be made by any competitor. The affair Is thus decided in favor of the admission of the Cornell four. The stewards were most courteous, and appear anxious to remove any unpleasant feeling. Tbe Corßell crew will arrive at Henley at 6:30 p. m. to day. The resolution has already been tele graphed to them. They will row only for the stewards’ cup, and not for the visitors’ plate. Toe conditions of the latter race ccnrain certain provisions concerning the leugth of residence at college, etc , which will probably preclude them from partici pation. SPEEDY VENGEANCE.

The Star has long been, and still is, the lead ing paper of Washington, both in the point of news and the money that comes into the cof fers of the owners. The morning papers are in most respects later editions of the Star. But the strong point in favor of it has perhaps been the fact that it has always kept aloof from jobbery. It has thus, untrammelled, been able to expose jobbers and their schemes as the occasion has required. There is no use talking: the people can tell without having to hear it that a newspaper is open to corruption, Succumbing to the inlinuxting offers of job bers and lobbyists, is the whole se cret of the reputation that the city of Washington has acquired as a national graveyard for newspaper enterprise. The amusing and imbecile National Re%mbli can is now languishing on its last legs because the people will not support a concern run in the interest of the star route thieves. The Post, which assumes to be a national organ of the Democracy, does not get support enough to iasure its living from one month to the other When the latter paper first started here it secured unusual support for anew en terprise. It was full f news. It soon became apparent.however.to tbe most unsophisticated that its columns were open to any job bery or thievery, the managers of which would come down with the lucre. The paper deceiv ed outsiders for a time, and even deceives some of them now, but the resi denters of Washington have, by expe rience, learned the earmarks of journalistic prostitution. They do not support the Post The consequence is that it has deteriorated from the first six mon hs of its birth, ana it is now a wonder as to how it manages to live. I started out, however, by saying that anew afternoon paper was to be started. That is not exactly the truth. It is an old afternoon paper under anew management. For the past ten years the Washington Critic has been published every afternoon. It was a penny paper, aDd catered to the people who did not want to pay three cents for the Star. Under the manage ment of Carpenter Miller, a close friend of the writer, it made about ten thousand dollars a year clear, and got along very well. Miller was ;he best newspaper manager that I ever saw in my life But his paper was no rival to the Star, which scoops in a clear annual profit of about fifty thousand dollars Poor Mr. Miller died about a y -arago. Since then the Critic has gone down. The Star has been hunting down and publishing to the world the star route thieves and the Treasury stealers. The Republican, owned and controlled by the star route thieves, has been defending both. The Post, implicated in the star route jobbery, though a Democratic paper, has been tongue tied and dare not call its soul its own. Not being able to head off or refute the Star's publica tions and expos ires, the gang of thieves who run the Republican have decided to establish an afternoon paper in opposition to it and try to break up its business. They have purchased the Critic ror this purpose. Brady and Hallet Kilbourn. of the old District of Columbia real estate pool, are the promtuent figures of the new paper, with one A. C. Buell as horn-blower. Buell used to be a Democratic newspaper correspondent of some alleged weight aud prominence (also alleged). He sold out, or rather was bought very cheap by the star route thieves, and is now one of them. He is to edit the new Critic, which is o be anti-Star and anti administration. Allow me to remark that it will be a remarßably cold day in July when either the Star or the administration is in the smallest degree affected by tli3 new corrup tionist organ. THE SOUTHERN OFFICE-SEEKER. Many Southern Republicans called on Presi dent Garfle and very soon after he was inaugu rated and kept it up until the Senate ad journed. They all had their little axes, and in tne most polite terms asked that the President grind them. After the Senate adjourned, and) the Southern Republicans were not provided for by nominations, a gloom fell over them. A few remained on hand to bother and disturb tbe President, but the majori y de camped and left the field to other office hun ters. Now I see the Southern Republican no more haunting the White House or the de partments He sees that there is not much chance for him. He has left the field for Re publicans of other States. Only th Republi cans, however, in the contiguous States fall upon ilia President. In tbe absence of mem bers of Congress or their recommendation the ' President is not making any appointments or changes to speak < f Therefore it is a very useless expenditure for Republicans from any of the outlying States to come here and bother him. THE PARDONING POWER. The Ilayes administration pardoned convicts from the penitentiaries by the wholesale. The average per month was between 30 and 40. It seemed that Hayes and Devens had decided upon that monthly figure. Just before Hayes went out, the friends of United States convicts, knowing his weakness, filed thousands of ap plications for pardon upon the Department of Justice. They have kept it up during the present administration, but not with any en couraging success. President Garfield and At torney General MacVeagh do not pay one iota of the attention to applications for pardons that was shown by their predecessors. Of the thousands of aopiications that have been filed since the 4th of March last only four have been granted. Upon the basis of the last adminis tration at least one hundred and twenty par dons would have been issued by this time. WEST POINT AND ANNAPOLIS. Washington “society” runs wild over the army aud navy. To capture an army or navy officer, no matter how low his rank, is what the young women of “society” are trained to try for in a matrimonial way. That best illustrates the feeling of “society” towards the two professions mentioned. Naturally the young ladies prefer the young men; therefore they' “dote” upon the cadets at Annapolis and West Point. For this reason we are about to be deserted, for a short time at least, by what remnant of “society” the summer has left us. That remnant has been on the qui vive about the commencement exercises which take place at Annapolis and VVest Point on the 10th, for some weeks past. It has been getting ready for either one or the two events, and tbe hegira will commence to-morrow. Then we will not for some days have even the rem nant of ‘ society” left us. What we are to do I cannot tell Will somebody plea e pray for us in our affliction? Potomac. WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA. The Tourists’ Country—The Inva lid*’ Retreat. Hendersonville, N. C., June B.—Editor Morning Xeivs: Thß summer saason has open ed, and doubtless many persons from the “Forest City” will ’ere long seek some cooler clime. As but very few from the seaboard of Georgia have as yet visited our section, I have taken the liberty of addressing you this com munication, in the hope of attracting the at tention, both of tourists and health seekers, to the “Land of the Sky.” There is no section of country on the Ameri can continent that can excel western North Carolina as a summer climate, either for health or comfort. It is here that the tourist in quest of pleasure can satiate his desire, while the invalid, enfeebled by disease, can re cuperate with a rapiiity truly astonishing. The altitude ot Hendersonville is 2,852 feet above the ocean, tbe air cool and braciDg, the water ice cold and free from the slightest par ticle of limestone. r l he city, like Augusta, is laid out at right angles and is beautified by rows of trees in the centre and on either s de of the principal street. Passengers for the mountains on reaching Spartanburg, S. C., take the train on the Ashe ville and Spartanburg Railroad for Henderson ville (the present terminus), and arrive at seven o'clock. Along this line tbe traveler rests hU eyes on the most sublime landscape in Ameri ca. The view of Tryon Mountain from the cars as they ascend the 1 steep grade 1 ’ of two hundred and thirty-seven feet to the mile is especially imposing, and, by long odds, sur passes any scenery that I ever beheld in the Eastern or Middle States, not excepting that on the Hudson river. On reaching the city tbe traveler finds the most ample hotel accommodations, at the most reasonable rates, offered by the American, the Virginia, the Arlington, CBSse’s Globe, and the Fletcher House. The latter, while pcssessing a less pretentious name than the rent, is superbly kept, Jcs proprietor. Dr. J. L. Eger ton, in its equipment, having bad no other ob ject in view gave the comfort of his guests. The fare in the mountains is of the very best, and the richest of milk and best of butter can be found in abundance. The gtreaaifi in this section abound in moun tain trout, and the industrious sportsman, by journeying twenty-five or thirty miles to the “Balsam Mountains,” ran get a shot at a bear or deer. Western North Carolina offers every inducement to sqmmer travelers for the geasnh of ISSI, and heartily invites them to come within her borders, assuring all who may do so that they will never regret their visit to this “the Land of the Sky.” “Julian.” Tbe New York Stock Market. New York, June 9.—The stock market opened generally firm, and at the first board prices showed an advance of 6 per cent, in Louisville and New Albany, and to 2 per cent, ig the general list, Texas pacific, P., D. and E and the trunk lines leading therein. After midday speculation became somewhat weak, and prices reacted >£ to 1 per cent. During the afternoon the market was ex tremely dull, but in the late dealings a fair degree of activity prevailed, and the closing quotations were ln moat instances within a small fraction of the top figures. Canada Southern was an exception, and closed at a decline of % per cent. Louisville and New Albany recorded a farther advance of 4 per cent., making an improvement on the day of ;Q per pent.

Its Prospect* and Conditions— Com parative Report* from Georgia, Virginia, North Carolina, Ala bama,niMiulppland Texas—Acre ages, Weather, Labor and Fer tilizer*. Galveston, June 9. —The Cotton Ex change of this city has received one hundred and twenty-six replies from ninety counties, which show an increase ln the acreage planted estimated at 3 per cent, as compared with last year. One hundred of these re plies report the weather more favorable than last year, sixteen report similar weather to last year, and ninety five report the weather as less favorable. Ninety-two re port stands good or fair, and twenty nine not good. The crop as reported will average sixteen days later than last year. Fifty-two replies give the condition of the crop as good and seventy-four as not good, owing to too much rain, the crops being grassy and weedy. There is general complaint of scarcity and inefficiency of labor caused by the hands going to the different railroads now in course of cons'ruction in the State. No fertilizers are used. A. few rt plies re port the appearance of rise cotton worm, but not in sufficient number to do any damage. Mobile, June 9. —The Cotton Exchange has issued the following cotton crop report for May: Alabama— Seventy-four letters from for ty four counties report the acreage com pared with last year as follows: In twenty six of the most productive counties, an av erage decrease of per cent. In eigh teen less productive counties there is an average increase of 5% per cent. The weather is reported equal to the most fa vorable in fifty six counties, and less favorable in eight. Stands are reported from fair to good ln thirty seven counties, and not good in seven. Io eighteen counties the crop is re ported from ten to twenty days later. In nineteen about the same, and in seven from ten to fifteen days earlier. The condition is from fair to good throughout tbe depart ment. Labor is reported about tbe same, except in eleven productive counties, in whicn it is reported as less in number and not so efficient. The nse of fertilizers has generally Increased. In some counties cut worms and defective seed are complained of. the latter having made replanting neces sary in many cases. Mississippi —Thirty-five letters from twen ty counties report the acreage as follows: In five of the most productive count.l3B no change in average. In fifteen of the less pro ductive counties an average increase of 4 per cent. The weather is reported more favor able in thirteen counties, equally as favor able lu three and less favorable in four counties. Stands are reported from fair to very good In about two of the smaller counties. In ten counties the crop is re ported as from ten to fifteen days late. Ia ten about the same. The condition is from fair to good in thirteen counties, and poor and grassy In seven. Labor is reported as less in number but equally efficient in most of the counties, and the same as last year in others. The use of fertilizers has largely Increased in the eight counties in which they are U6ed, and in the other twelve counties they arc but little used. There is some lit tle complaint of cut worms injuring the stands. Augusta, Ga., June 9. —The Augusta Exchange’s report of the condition of the cotton crop for May is based on twenty two replies from thirteen counties. There is an average increase of about 2>£ per ceDt. The weather was very dry everywhere from about April 20 to May 28. Fifteen reports state it as less favorable, five as the same as last year, and only two as more favorable. Since May 28 rains have been general. StaDds are good wherever cotton came up well, which is generally the case with the early planting. Some had to be replanted. Of this a mod erate percentage was not uo yet, but can do well with favorable weather. One report only gives the crop as earlier, two as the same, and all the others as later than last season. Tbe condition Is good and healthy, though the plant is rather small, being stunted in growth by the continued dry weather. The fields are clean and free of grass and weeds. Labor is re ported to be fully as good as last year, and in some sections as even more efficient. Nine reports give the quantity of fertilizers used a the same as last year, ten give an increase ranging from 5 to 25 per cent., and three reported a decrease. The average in crease will , hardly exceed even If it reaches 5 per cent, owing to the coniluued dry weather, which badly baked all strong clay lands. Some planters had not quite finished planting at the date of reports. Owiog to some cause some lands intended for cotton were never planted. Some, as stated, were replanted, where, from the lack of moisture, the seed failed to germinate. The rains, though general since May 28th, have not been heavy. While the crop is undoubtedly later than last year It is fully up to the average years. There is no doubt but that about 15 per cent, of commercial fertilizer was brought into and made in this State and were shipped to distributing points, but there is a sood deal now at the depots unsold. The planters and farmers as a rule have com menced the season under very unfavorable conditions. For two years past the cereals and subsistence crops have virtually failed and are not very promising this year. The result is that much money has been spent for provisions of all kinds, and the sales of corn and hay this spring to supply the country have exceeded those of the past three years together, ln some sections farm stock is running down for want of proper nourishment, and more applications have been refused here by manufacturers last winter and spring for advances to plant ers than for several years past. Norfolk, Ya , June 9 —Following is the report of the condition of the cotton crop made by the Exchange and compiled from seventy-nine replies from thirty-four coun ties in North Carolina and Virginia, the average date being May 81. Twenty-four show the same acreage a6 last year. Fifty-five show an average increase of 13 16 per cent, over the acreage of last year. Thirty seven show less favorable weather, and eleven show the same weather as last year. Thirty eight report fair to good stands, twenty one poor to bad, and ten the same as last year. Sixty show the crop to be eleven days later than last year, thirteen report it nine days earlier, and twenty five about the same as last year. Forty three report the condition of the crop good, nineteen fair, and seven teen poor. The general tenor of the replies shows that labor has decreased slight ly in number and is not so efficient as of late years. Strenuous efforts are being made la some sections to induce Immigra tion, and thus offset the depreciation In labor. An average of twenty-four replies shows an increase Of 18 per cent, in fertili zers over last year, thirty-three an increase and only eleven the same amount used as last year. Nine show a decrease ln the amount used. The cold, dry weather in the latter part of May retarded tbe growth of the plant somewhat. Chopping out is de layed bv the scarcity and inefficiency of labor. Reports of worms come from two counties, and hail storms are reported by two counties. Letter from South Florida. Marion County, June 5 —Editor Morning News: Not seeing any news in your paper from this little village, I have concluded to send yqu a few lines. We have a very pretty (xmntyyand gome nice orange groves started. Some of our people are reaping benefits from their labors But we have one serious drawback, the want of transportation. We live within about sevpq or eight miles of Orange Lake, bat freight sent to Philadelphia i* eight to ten days in reaching that place. Our farmers went into truck farming pretty heavy this season, and I am sorry to say that not one out of ten realized money enotigfc to pay for gathering and boxing his' vegetables. Th* outlook is very gloomy, as many did not plant “king ootton,” and the corn crop is now cut short by the drouth. It has been about six or seven weeks since we have had rain enough to moisten the ground. If we do not have raffi soon there will not be any corn made in our immediate section, as it is now in full silk and tassel. What little cotton was planted is look ing well. We have a most desirable locality for truck faro ing. having plenty of high, dry, rich lands, but until something is done to give us quick and cheap transport .tion we cannot make it pay. B*.z.

THE SOUTH’S OPPORTUNITY. i Object* and Scope of the Internation* al Cotton Exposition—A New Era of Progress and Prosperity About to Open. Nashville American. Marietta, Ga., Jane 4.—The Interna tional Cotton Exposition, to commence on the sth of October, 1881, at Atlanta, Ga., was the result of an interview between the business men of the North and the South, ! and is meant as a great national fair. At lanta, becanse of its central location, and its facilities of approach and accommoda tions for visitors, was selected as the most fitting point for this fair, or exposition. There was nothing selfish in the choice, as is apparent from the readiness of the cities of the North in their liberal subscriptions of money in its aid. Nor was it intended sole ly for the benefit of the cotton interests, but as cotton is the great Industrial interest of the South, It was deemed proper that it should have the name of that great staple. To the acute perceptions of the business men of the North, its Immense agency in promoting the Interests of all sections and all interests was palpable, and they entered with alacrity into the scheme. These men are ambitious to promote the general wel fare, they are men of liberal views and en larged patriotism, and see clearly that the Interests of the South are the interests of the nation, and desiring, as much as in their power, to aid the South in building up of her broken fortunes, not only consented, but desired that this Exposition should be located in the heart of the S>uth, and considering all its advantages for such an enterprise, selected Atlanta. There was another motive; here could, and probably would be assembled the great est number of the business men and plant ers of the South, and through this means the benefits to be derived to the South would be more extensively disseminated, which was so much desired. It would most likely bring into closer communication the North, West and South, where and when might be discussed the great practical in terests of all sections, and their people be come better known to each other; where, too, in their exhibits, might be seen the re sults of the experience of every section in the machinery, implements, and manufac turesof each. In thus organizing this Exposition it was the desire of every one to benefit the South, and by enlarging the intercourse between tbe people of all the sections. Every Southern man will admit that the great Interest of the South is the production of cotton, and that interest is greatly periled by the pre sent system of its production. Whoever has read that masterly address of President Morehead before the National Cotton Plan ters’ Association, at Memphis, will at once recognize their peril. He demonstrates that as we increase the quantity we reduce price, and, of consequence, the per cent, upon the capital invested in its production, and shows that a crop of 8,000,000 bales would so reduce the prices that it would notj pay 1 per cent, upon the capital. Such a state of affairs would confine the South to per petual poverty. It must be abandoned or else the Southern planter, as now constitu ted, must surrender his country and home to a superior intelligence, which will to manage this mine of wealth as to make it all that it can be made. A higher and more economical Intelligence must lay bold upon it and develop Its wonderful capacitlep. Cannot those now engaged In this indus trial pursuit be taught that tbis is the ob ject mainly of this international exhibition of the appliances of agriculture and the arts. When the higher intelligence of the coun try are in council with the specimens of every industry before them, will there not be eliminated such truths as shall enlighten and lead to the adoption of such means as will greatly change the present ruinous system of agricultue to tbe Bouth? The great mass of tbe Southern people are agri culturists; it is her great interest, and Intel , ligently directed is destined to make her people the most prosperous and most pow erful of the nation. It is especially in her interest that the International Exposition was conceived, and she Is kindly invited to give all tbe aid she can in making this great effort in her cause a success, and from which shall be dated the commence ment of anew era in her history. New industries are beginning to claim the attention of the enterprising men of the BoUth. To develop these, capital is re quired—the North has this in abundance. It only needs to be shown that its invest ment in Southern industries will be more profitable than in those of the North, and that it will be safe to induce Its rapid In flux. The proits from the manufacture of cotton goods are known to be greater here than in any other section, and it is being stimulated to active growth. The aceu mulating capital of the North Is finding its way in this direction, and in the building of new railroads. Every section of the South is being pierced with these, where there is promise of employment for them of such a character as will ultimately make the Investment pay. The vast resources of the South in mineral wealth only need to be known to be appreciated and developed. The States of Georgia, Alabama, South and North Carolina, Arkansas, Missouri,Tennes see and Texas are all rich in iron, copper, zinc and gold, abounding in the finest timber for all the purposes of man’s use. Here is the finest water power in the Union.to be utilized at the least expense. The climate Is pro pitious and healthful, and every inducement exists to Invite population and capital. This is only to be known to secure this, and to this end no means are so effectual as those which will prompt investigation. It is believed this great Southern fair, or ex position, will do this, because there will be on exhibition specimens of all these min erals and woods of the country to demon strate their existence here in the greatest abundance. The time is especially propitious. There is abroad a spirit of enterprise. The ani mosities created by the war are fast passing away. Every-one is beginning to feel that the whole country Is theirs, and that the Interest of one is the interest of all, and that every person and every Interest is equally protected everywhere. Money Is abundant, begging for emplovmeut, and enterprise is seeking for this. It is the ob ject of the International Cotton Exposition to promote this, by bringing together those wl o will Impartially appreciate these great advantages of the 8 >uth, and who will lay hold upon and develop them. No section is so much interested In this enterprise as the South; her need Is a divis ion of pursuits, that all may equally pros per andno one be overdone, and of con se quence ruined. She wants tbe development of her resources to augment her wealth and population, to create capital and to keep and to employ it here, not only to save the millions employed, but to employ their earnings here as a part of her wealth. The statistics of the country show that whilst the cotton planter accumulates from the growth of cotton ten dollars, the manufacturers accumulate fifty, and in this the South is but the vassal of the manufac turers in Europe and New England, The millions of iron and steel imported into the South is but a drain upon her Industries, as she prvst-eeecs within her own borders all of this, and its elaboration by her own people would, of Itself, save to her every dollar which goes to pay for these Imported ma terials. We ask our people to arouse to the exertion which ahail accomplish this. Heed no. longer the croakers' croaking; arise to action, and forget the past. Come to the Exposition, and believe that it is what it professes to be, and that it will re sult in great good to the South. It only needs concert of thought and unity of ac tion to build up rapidly our waste places and to make the South even mere tbe gar den of tbe naMon than she ever was. Let every energy be put forward in this effort, and success is pertain. W. H. Bparks. George Stephenson’s Birthday.
