NO. 3 WHITAKER STREET, (MORNING NEWS BUILDING). J. 11. ESTILL, Proprietor. W. T. THOMPSON, Editor. FRIDAY 7 IINK 10, 1881. Malione has the warm support of Gen. Grant, and he thinks he can induce that chieftain to come to Virginia and make a few speeches to the negroes. It is to be hoped the administration will include the Interior Department in the localities to be investigated. There is a fine field for a strong drag net there. Gen. Wm. H. Payne is talked of as the Democratic candidate for Governor of Virginia. Payne was a Confederate brigadier. Gen. Fitzhugh Lee has a large and influential support for the same office. General Grant arrived-at St. Louis on the 7th inst. from New Orleans. He did not know how his badges came to be in the hands of the two men arrested at Texarcana. lie thought his Japanese servant left them in Chicago. He re fused to talk politics. The richness of the Alaska gold mines has been greatly exaggerated. The gold is hard to get at, and does not exist iD the quantities reported, and the theories about big nuggets are pronounced by parties who have traversed the gold belt as decidedly mythical. The Cincinnati Gazette publishes a carefully prepared article to prove that Conkling is insane. The fact that he is the first member of the Republican party who ever resigned a good office without having a fair tail hold on a better one goes far to subject him to the suspicion of lunacy. The New York Times says that the Republicans of Virginia ought not to antagonize Mahone, as they would by doing so "cnly retard the progress of the State towards that kind of civiliza tion that prevails at the North.” But pray is “that kind of civilization” de sirable in the South? East St. Louis has been lighted by the tower electric lamp system, the water tower on the river, a building over two hundred feet high, being utilized for thiß purpose. On this a light of 32,000 candle power was fixed. The experi ment was a success, lighting up the town and the river for over a mile at a cost of $o a night. Rev. or Professor Swing, of Chicago, who runs some kind of a nondescript institution in that moral city, wants ali the vulgar, nonsensical portions of the Old and New Testaments stricken out, and Robert Ingersoll wants the whole thing blotted out. Prof. Swing and Robert Ingersoll agree pretty well with the Russian Nihilists. The scheme for a great musical festi val in New York next year, under the direction of Theodore Thomas, has already taken practical shape, and an ex perienced agent will be dispatched at once to Europe to close engagements with artists of celebrity. Subscriptions to the guaranty fund have already reach ed the sum of $55,000, sufficient to in sure the success of the undertaking, and it is expected that the amount can easily be raised to $75,000 or SIOO,OOO. The London Jockey Club is such a highly aristocratic and genteel organiza tion that the owner of Iroquois, the winner of the Derby, cannot become a member, because he is "engaged in trade.” This is rough on Mr. Lorillard, who considers himself quite an aristocrat in this country. He has his consolation, however. Being in the wholesale snuff and tobacco trade, he can afford to turn up his nose at the small fry retail deal ers. as he doubtless does, and at all the low consumers of the articles he supplies, as well. This ought to make him happy. The seaside resorts, not satisfied with prohibiting the Hebrews, propose to banish the children as well. At the Cliff House, at Tarrytown, N. Y. t the sign conspicuously declares, "Adults only will be entertained.” Several other ho tels in the vicinity have made similar an nouncements, and a general warfare against children seems to have been be gun by the hotel men. The proprietor of the Cliff House is also an anti-Hebra ist, refusing to lease his rooms to Jews. It is probable that, in the course of time, the seaside resorts will grow still more particular, and demand a moral health certificate from everybody calling for a breakfast or a lunch. Said the New York Times a few days ago: "The Democratic party in Arkansas is in a lair way to be permanently divided on the same issue which ha 9 split the Virginia Democracy,” that is, the State debt question. Such a division has been threatened, but is not imminent. Mr. Fishback, the leader of the "amend ment” or “Readjuster” wing of the par ty. has recently written a letter to the Little Rock Gazette, which represents the non-amendment wing, that he will support "the ticket, platform and all,” of the next Democratic convention, whether opposed to the constitutional amendment or not, and the Gazette re sponds that it intends to make "no fight outside of the Democratic ranks.” The Cincinnati Timex Star thinks that there is to be a revival of canals, and that the traffic of the future will be largely carried by water. There have never been more canal enterprises ou hand than just at present First in im portance is the Panama canal; then comes Corinth canal, to cut across the isthmus of Corinth and shorten the dis tance to Constantinople; the Cape Cod canal to shorten the distance around the cape; the Baltimore canal, to cut across Delaware and save the voyage down the Chesapeake; the Hennepen canal, and the proposed canal through Florida, which would shorten the voyage from New Orleans to New York and Liver pool several hundred miles. Sir Anthony Musgrove, Governor of Jamaica, is in New York on business. He says Jamaica is very greatly in need of Americans and American ideas, to stir the people up. The British Govern ment has over 70,000 acres ot good land for sale, which has reverted to it on ac count of the failure of the owners to pay rent. Musgrove saysi these lands will be offered to Americans at low rates. There is plenty of negro labor to hire at from twenty-five to fifty cents a day, but the negroes are very lazy, and it is diffi cult to get them to do any work,although they have abundant opportunities. Mus grove says Jamaica wants an American who knows how to keep a flrst-clasa hotel. The Courier-Journal suggests that perhaps Conkling, Platt, Gorham and Chandler might be induced to try (heir fortunes on the island. A Stormy Administration. Mr. Tilden is credited with having prophesied that Garfield's would be the stormiest administration this country had ever witnessed. The prophesy seems to be in course of fulfillment. Its open war with Conkling and his faction, and his ears filled with insidious tales of corruption and disloyalty on the part of Blaine, it is industriously circulated that Conkling, Grant & Cos. will shortly be gin a cruel war upon Garfield, and briDg back “Boss Shepherd” to aid them in a full expose of Garfield’s "De Golyer Pavement” bribe-taking while he was a member of Congress. “When rogues fall out,” etc. Great pains were taken to cover up or explain away the black charges of corruption against Gar field by the famous “Investigating Com mittee” of the Forty-sixth Congress, and after he was nominated for President even the Democrats grew mild upon the subject, and ceased altogether upon his election. Guilty he certainly was, in their opinion, but that only fitted him for high position in the Repub lican ranks, and now that he was President, and possessed of un doubted ability, they would throw no obstacle in his way of a fair administra tion of the government In his fight with Conkling, therefore, as the least of two evils, they confirmed the appointments of Garfield, and though Conkling may bring to his aid General Grant and his cohorts, and though Blaine may be thrown off by disaffection and disloyalty, the Democrats will adhere to their policy, and guide the storm to Republi can destruction. Another Weak Legislature. The legislative bodies of the country, according to the newspapers, are singu larly weak and inefficient. Of the Penn sylvania Legislature, which was to ad journ yesterday, the Philadelphia Keen ing News remarks that even the well iu tentioned men were powerless to control the noisy factions, and allowed them selves to be driven here and there by bogus reformers, who assumed to repre sent popular alarms; which shows that even honest, clear headed men, if lack ing in aggressive force, do not make use ful legislators. In brief, says the New, the Legislature has utterly failed in its duty, and the session has been foolishly frittered away for lack of moral strength. The same will doubtless be said of the New York Legislature when it adjourns after its long squabble over State Senators, and, as we have already given the press views of the recently adjourned Illinois Legislature, it will be seen that the Legislatures of the three most popu lous States in the Union (all Republican) arc severely castigated and denounced in unmeasured terms by leading Republi can journals, not only as inefficient and worthless, but as positively factious, immoral and mischievous. Thus it appears, according to their own showing,that Republican administration, whether small or great, local or general, sectional or national, bear exactly the same complexion—and that Republican State Legislatures are but the reflex of the grand central oligarchy at Wash ington. Practical Reconeiliatiou. During the ceremonies at the New York Academy of Music on the evening of Decoration day, Major General Doubleday met Bishop Stevens, of South Carolina. General Doubleday, in his speech, stated that twenty years ago be aimed the first gun fired in the war at the Confederate cause—referring to Fort Sumter; and that twenty years ago Bishop Stevens, then in command of Stevens’ battery, Charleston harbor, aimed the first gun of the war against the United States, waving over the Star of the West, which came with reinforcements to Fort Sumter, and that he offered him his hand as a token of the reconciliation between the North and the South, as ex emplified in his appearance at the acade my to do honor to the Union dead. The audience, at the request of the presiding officer, Major General Sickles, rose en masse and ratified the contract by enthu siastic applause. This is an episode of practical reconciliation and illustrates that the country at heart is tired and weary and disgusted with the sectional ism and bitterness that has been so long kept alive by political charlatans for sel fish and ignoble purposes. Agreed on One Point. Whatever may be the gripiDgs and troubles ot the Republican party—how ever many fragments into which it may be violently rent, and however fiercely its leaders may denounce and oppose each other—all are agreed on one point, and that is the encouragement of Mahone to dissolve the “solid South.” On this question the triumphant Garfield and Blaine can cordially shake hands with the defeated Conkling and Platt. Re publicans never lose sight of the “loaves and fishes,” and however absorbing the deadly feud among themselves, they can always unite against any other party which endangers their game of plunder. A Serious Charge.— At a meeting of the New York Chamber of Commerce last week, Colonel Frederick A. Conk ling created a sensation by declaring that one of the members of the Ways and Means Committee of the House of Rep resentatives had been bribed (in the sum of $100,000) to prevent legislation on the sugar question. The money is alleged to have been paid by certain sugar mer chants in New York city. The report of the committee on the main question is very severe on ex Secretary Sherman, with which the chamber is at issue. In his last communication to the chamber he is charged with "evading the ques tion,” and in "saying what was not true.” Mr. Phillips, one of the committee, said, to sum it all up, "he had exceeded his duty as an executive officer and assumed legislative powers, violating the plain terms of a law, and the Chamber of Com merce should put itself on record in op position to an act so reprehensible.” Fence or No Fence.—The farmers of Randolph county, Ga., have been in council and debate on the subject of "fencing stock” instead of the farms, and as but one speaker appeared in favor of the old law on the subject, it is pretty clear that the farmers of Ran dolph are nearly unanimous for saving the annual expense to the county of "$70,000 for repairing old fences," to say nothing of the waste of valuable timber in constructing rail fencing enough to connect "Cuthbcrt with the City of Washington." New York Freemasons. The Grand Lodge of New York met on the 7th. inst The report of the Grand Secretary showed an increase in the last year of 2,674 initiated, 2,694 passed, and 2,577 raised, with 640 ap plications. Total increase, 8,884! ex pelled, 86; suspended, 10. Unaffiliated during the year for non payment ot dues, 4,029; restored to membership, 859; total membership in good standing, 72,867; deaths, 866; receipts of the order during the year, $83,556 55, William Penn’s Remains. It seems that in the negotiations for the transfer of the ashes of William Penn from their resting place in England to the great city which he founded in America no account was taken of the trustees of the cemetery in which they have rested for 163 years. After the consent of his surviving lineal descend ants had been obtained it was supposed that there was no other person in exist ence who could interpose any legal ob stacle to the proposed removal. Mayor and Councils of Philadelphia, the Penn sylvania Historical Society and the State Legislature united in a request to the English descendants of Penn to permit the people of Pennsylvania to pay this posthumous honor to their illustrious ancestor. Gov. Hoyt requested Mr. George Leib Harrison, a wealthy citizen of Philadelphia, who was about to sail for Europe, to act for the State govern ment, and to do whatever might be necessary to secure the object in view. Mr. Harrison is now on his way across the ocean, but it is not likely that he will succeed in his mission. Under date of June 4, Mr. R. Littieboy, one of the trustees of the burial ground in Buck inghamshire, in which Penn is buried, writes to the London Times that no ap plication has been made to the board of trustees for the removal of the remains, and that if such a request were made it would not be entertained. It is to be presumed that without the consent of the legal custodians of the cemetery the grave of Penn cannot be disturbed, and it is said that Penn and his last wife were buried side by side in the family lot, and that there is no record by which the one grave can be identified from the other. Panama Protocol. The Panama Star and llerald publishes the following resume of the leading points of the protocol, said to have been signed by the representatives of Colom bia and the United States at New York : "Ships of war and military convoys of the United States may, in peace or war, pass free through the canal without pay rnent of tolls. By common consent both governments will select in territory in the isthmus places appropriate for forts, arsenals, coaling depots and naval store houses. In time of peace there shall be no military force on the isthmus beyond that indispensable for the repair and pre servation of such forts, arsenals, etc. In case the neutrality of the canal should be threatened, the United States are author ized to take military occupation of the isthmus, and Colombia will be obliged to co-operate. Ships of war and military expeditions of all other nations except the United States will have no right to pass through the canal in time of peace. Nevertheless, the two nations may, by mutual understanding, permit the inno cent use of the highway to such ships and expeditions. Colombia undertakes not to enter into negotiations concerning the canal, or alter the rules and regula tions governing it, without previous ac cord with the United States.” The Star and Hera Id adds: "The pro tocol has been disapproved by the Co lombian Senate. Deichman, United States Minister to Colombia, and author of the protocol, is furious. The govern ment, Senate, press and people have unanimously denounced the protocol.” A Pretty Tea Party. Gath writes: "Conkling’s dispatch to Mahone was one of his cunning signs of timidity. There is little que lion but that in the interest of himself, and not of the Republican party, he opened ne gotiations with Mahone even before the Presidential elections, to get control of the Senate and have a vast swoop of pa tronage throughout the country, whether the President should be a Democrat or a Republican. The Camerons were in thorough sympathy with this scheme,and Gorham was the principal agent to carry it out. It resulted in the precipitation of an issue before the Senate at the special session which the President did not intend nor the country desire. The Republicans of the North who have any sense are opposed to splilting up the South by corrupting it. The policy of Conkling and Mahone was to split the South, not by a chastened and altered sensibility and reflection, but by scattering the loaves and the fishes of the United States into the South, so as to make a scramble, and out of the scram ble possibly break up the Democracy. This would only be another version of the carpet-bag campaign, whose emissa ries were sent into the South to take possession of the Southern State govern ments, and by their corrupting influence divide the people. The scheme has failed ignominiously. Mahone is planted on the disgraceful platform of cheating the State creditors, and he dare not say the simple word that he is a Republican. He wants to say he is something else and get Republicans to support him.” The Philadelphia Evening News, a stalwart organ, says : "The star route thieves should be rigidly prosecuted aDd punished; but it is passing strange that the only person capable of detecting their guilt or urging their prosecution is a bitter Democrat, who has heretofore shown great readiness to use his powers to shield Democrats and punish Repub licans.” It is rather strange that a Democrat like A. 31. Gibson, who, it will be remembered, was so conspicuous in exposing the Credit Mobilier frauds, should be employed by President Gar field to track the star-route thieves; but the fact only goes to show that be can find no man in his own corrupt party whom he is willing to trust with the business. President Garfield has a lively recollection of Gibson’s enterprise and sagacity as a prober of official cor ruption. A letter has just been published, writ ten by Gen. J. M. Schofield in Septem ber, 1880, and addressed to the Secretary of the Society of the Army of the Cum berland, in which be claims for himself most of the glory of the Nashville cam paign, which resulted in the discomfiture of the Confederate General Hood, and which has heretofore been awarded to the late Gen. Geo. H. Thomas. In re gard to the battle of Franklin, one of the bloodiest of the war, General Schofield says he fought it on his own volition to save all his baggage and supplies, and without even the knowledge of General Thomas, who was in Nashville, fifty miles away. A number of the largest cotton houses of Memphis, Tenn., have formed a com pany for the purpose of building and operating a compress, elevator and ware houses for cotton storage, and to that end have purchased sixty acres of land lying along the river front. These houses represent three hundred thousand bales of this year's crop, and financially are equal to any amount necessary to carry out their object. The enterprise is ex pected to be of considerable advantage to Memphis, which is reaching out for the cotton product of the Southwest. Many Republican newspapers in the North have spoken favorably of the Re adjuster nominations in Virginia, and have advised the Virginia Republicans to support the ticket Anjong the journals that have committed themselves to the cause represented by Senator Ma hone, and his followers, may be men tioned the New Yorjt Times and Tribune, the Philadelphia Press, the Boston Tran script, Traveller and Herald, the Hart ford Courant, the Providence Star and the Buffalo Advertiser. A Nobby Christening. The New York Home Journal gives the following account of a recent christ ening party in Hartford: "About three or four hundred repre sentatives of Hartford, New York and Boston society assembled at the house of Charles H. Brainard on Capitol avenue, Hartford, on the afternoon of the 16th of May, to witness the baptism of his granddaughter, the infant child of Edgar T. Welles and wife. The christening took place in the large drawing room, which was decorated with choice flowers from Kin ner of New York, and Spear of Hartford. At one end of the room were two large pillars of lilies and roses, and between them stood a baptismal font, four feet high, composed entirely of Niphetoa and Lamarque rosebuds. In this stood a sil ver gilt bowl, containing water brought from the river Jordan by the Hon, Wm. Faxon. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Mr. Miller, rector of St. John’s Church, and the Rev. Mr. Cotton, brother-in law of Mrs. Welles. At the appointed hour, 4 o’clock, four ushers led the procession into the presence of the guests. The god mothers came first in single file, all dressed in white muslin gowns, trimmed with roses. They were Mrs. E. S. Clarke, of Boston, Mrs. Cotton and Mrs. W. R. Mowe, all aunts of the baby. Then followed Xhebonne with the infant, and the godfathers, John Welles, E. S. Clarke, and the Rev. Mr. Cotton. The parents and grandparents came last. The baby wore a dress made by Worth, of Paris. It was of sheer lawn, over white silk, most elaborately trim med with Mechlin lace and lilies of-the valley. On one shoulder of the dress was a rose-bud made of dia monds with leaves of emeralds, and on ihe other shoulder a golden buttercup, set with diamonds. A pretty feature of the service was the music, which was played in an under tone during the service, all of the com pany joining in singing the doxology be fore the benediction. After the baptism the two dining rooms were opened and Ilabenstein served a superb collation, at which ‘caudle’ made from a rare Eng lish receipt was supplied. The child received the name of ‘ Alice.’ The gifts were numerous, and among them were a diamond bangle, several diamond and jeweled rings, coral and gold beads, laces and embroideries, a cradle of flowers and numerous baskets of exotics. The entire house wa3 thrown open during the afternoon and evening, and rare flowers were placed in every available nook. Each guest was presented as a souvenir with a box of bonbons, on the cover of which was a photograph of the happy child about whom all this festal array was centered.” A Surprlsiag Historian. The following extracts from an article in the Capitol on Badeau’s alleged his tory, reflect, says General Boynton, the opinion of many army men here: "To readers of Charles O’Malley, who have lingered with delight over the glow ing pages where the excitement of war is portrayed in the high field of ideal creation, the book by General Badeau will be particularly welcomed. Linked to history by the fondness of a few iden tical dates, entwined with the names of great men by the rapture of its adulation, endeared to two hundred and six admirers of General Grant by the ex plosive qualities of its gush, this volume of war romance cannot fail to take. Badeau will not find a single author of record or reliable hearsay to justify his statements of the relative numbers of the two opposing armies, and the only smart thing in the book is the fallacious deduc tions from things that are made to appear as facts from a lack of explanation. As an instance, the reader is led to suppose that Lee surrendered 30,000 men or more at Appomattox. The fact is that 8,000 muskets were in line, and the rest were teamsters and such employes, with thousands of men on the muster rolls who were not at Appomatox. The surrender was made by rolls, and the stragglers who escaped and went to Johnston's army were not assigned to duty there because of that fact. All the whisky and administration corruption that has smirched Grant’s fame will not do him as much harm as this romantic rigmarole of falsehood and ignorance. Where the history ends and romance be gins it is impossible to tell. "General Badeau says that Stonewall Jackson fought Siegel, when, in fact, the doughty Dutch hero met Breckenridge, and was not in the vicinity of the alleged battle until long after Stonewall’sdeath.” Born to Good Luck. —An interesting incident occurred on board the steamer Germanic during the passage from Liv erpool to New York. One of the cabin passengers, among whom were William 11. Vanderbilt, J. K. Vanderbilt and Capt. J. II Vanderbilt, uncle of the former, tells an interesting story of a poor, friendless woman in the steerage who gave birth to a child when the ship was three days out, and who was made happy and comfortable by the kindness and generosity of Mr. William 11. Van derbilt and others. A purse of S3OO was presented her, and a letter was given by Mr. Vanderbilt, calling upon the New York Hospital managers to see that the poor woman received, at his expense; the best of care. The mother, Mrs Margaret Phillips, is a Welsh woman, and was on her way alone to join her husband in this country. She was over joyed at the sympathies enlisted in her behalf, and was particularly delighted when the Itev. Dr. Satterlee christened her baby "Mary Germanic Vanderbilt Phillips,” after the steamer and her gen erous benefactor. Captain Vanderbilt became godfather to the child and Mrs. George Evans godmother. During last week the births and deaths in the city of New York numbered 422 and the deaths 600. This discrepancy, says the Tribune, is rather greater than the average, but there is always a mark ed difference between the two figures. The metropolis, like all large cities, is an immense consumer of human life, and would soon become depopulated if it did not constantly draw upon the rural districts for a supply of fresh blood. The deaths in a year exceed the births by about 10,000. Looked at in one light the city is an insatiable devourer of vital forces and demands from the country 10,000 human beings every year to appease its appetite. Its victims are sacrificed in a thousand ways, by overwork in the strife for bread, by overworry in the mad struggle for gain, by poisoned air, unwholesome food, vile drinks and adulterated drugs, and perhaps most of all by the great friction, tension and competition of city life, wearing out the human machine too rapidly and causing it to break down prematurely. Civilization has yet to solve the problem of making the city as healthy as the country. British Gold. English capital is coming into this country seeking in vestment in ways that may not ultimate ly benefit itself or this country. To this cause is largely due the recent unprece dented rise in certain railroad securities and the consolidations. By-and-by there will come a reaction. England is money logged. London banks are choked with money waiting for investment. Yet the commerce, the manufacture, the agriculture and the mines of Eng land are all past their prime and on their decline. Money flows there because London is still the bank and clearing-house of the world. But the lack of profitable investment at home leads English capital to take risks in this country, aod to pay prices that caution does not justify. It is English capitalists that are fighting the Southern extensions and connections of the Baltimore sys tem of roads, and zeal gets the better of their judgment, —Baltimore Gazette. The Wilmington Star suggests the celebration of the three hundredth an niversary of the settlement of Roanoke Island, N. G., the oldest English settle ment on the continent. This event occurs in June, 1884, the settlement of the island having been made in June, 1584. North Carolina is great on cele brations, and should its people determine to go into the one suggested, there is no doubt it would prove a success, A Canal Boom. The movement of grain down the Mis sissippi river in barges ha3 again given prominence to the canal as an actual and possible highway of transportation. Some years ago it was supposed that the great trunk Hues of railway had entirely superseded the canals, and that the best of them had no future except to be filled up as useless ditches. This has already been done in the case of the Erie and Pittsburg canal, which at one time united the waters of Lake Erie and the Ohio river, and formed a most important link in the line of communication between New York and the West and the Southwest. It wa3 predicted that the great New York and Erie canal would eventually share the fate of this Pennsylvania tributary. The success of the barge system of transportation on the Mississippi river has wrought such a revolution in public opinion on this sub ject that some of the Western cities, which are pre-eminently railroad cen tres, are becoming seriously alarmed about their trade. Chicago, with char acteristic energy, was the first city to start a project for turning the barges from their southward course. The Illinois Legislature was induced to pass a bill giving the Illinois canal, which extends from Chicago to La Salle, to the United States Government on the condition that it would be completed to the Mississippi river. Just now, how ever, the general government has no particular use for a canal, and it could scarcely have been expected that the gift would be accepted when the bill was passed. The discussion of the sub ject, however, paved the way for the calling of a convention of represents tives of the commercial interests of the Northwestern States at Davenport, lowa, for the purpose of putting the de mand upon the bounty of the United States Government into a more effective shape. In point of fact Chicago does not care to have the Illinois river im proved from La Salle to its mouth, be cause it flows into the Mississippi two hundred miles below the parallel of Chicago, and very close to the rival city of St. Louis. A short cut from Henne pin (near La Salle) across to the Missis sippi river, at Rock Island, is what Chicago wants, and the Davenport Con vention accordingly memorialized Con gress to assist in making the canal, in connection with other internal improve ments, which were thrown in to satisfy the trans-Mississippi delegates. The distance from Hennepin to Rock Island, on the Mississippi river, by an air line, is about 70 miles. The distance from Hen nepin to Chicago by the canal route is about 100 miles. The canal between Lake Michigan and the Mississippi river would consequently be 170 miles in length, 96 miles of which are already com pleted. The barge movement, the agita tion of the canal question in the West, and especially the widening and deepening of the Welland canal in Canada, have created more or less apprehension in New York lest a portion of the traffic which now moves through the Erie canal should lie turned from its accustomed channel. The Legislature has had va rious bills under consideration looking to the improvement of the canil, and a bill abolishing al ( l tolls came very near passing the Senate. A bill is now pend ing which contemplates the enlargement of the locks so as to make them 236 feet in length and 26 feet wide. The present dimen sions of the locks are 100 feet by 18 feet. The bill also contemplates the deepening of the canal by digging out one foot of earth from the bottom and raising the bank two feet higher, thus securing an additional depth of three feet. The es timated cost of the proposed improve ment is five and a half millions of dol lars It is quite evident that New York city still regards the Erie canal as a most important factor in her commercial pro gress. Cotton Transportation Deflection To wards Lower Lines ol' Latitude. New York Commercial Bulletin. The New Orleans Picayune is arguing to show that the tendency of the cotton movement towards the North Atlantic ports has about reached its culmination, and that causes are now actively at work to produce such a reaction as will con tine transportation and the handling of the staple to the cotton belt proper. The statistics which the writer briDgs to bear on the subject certainly go far to justify his deductions. The opening up of the longitudinal railway system extending down from the West into Arkansas and Texas is shown to have greatly stimu lated the overland movement out of the cotton belt; last year the figures reaching 1,134,000 bales, or nearly 20 per cent, of the total production. Of this, 600,000 bales crossed the Mississippi at Hannibal and passed through St. Louis, and 161,- 000 were carried North from Cairo by the land lines of transportation. Out of that crop barely 40 per cent, was sent to the Gulf ports. This season, however, there has been a marked change. Ac cording to the Picayune-. ‘‘The crop has been augmented over It per cent., yet the quantity of cotton carried over land has decreased nearly 100.000 bales from the figures of last year to corresponding date. The principal decrease in this direction has been at St. Louis, where there has been 99,000 bales less cotton handled than last year. 'I he shipments through Louisville have also fallen off 59,000 bales. On the other hand, there has been an augmentation in the shipments via Hannibal, and the Cincinnati Southern has greatly increased the business of the Ohio metropolis. As a consequence of this relative decrease in the Northern-bound cotton busi ness of the railways, the Gulf ports have en larged their receipts in exact proportion to the augmentation of the crop, and on this basis ought to handle for the current season say 2,600,000 bales, against 2,3:5,100 during 1879-80.” On the Atlantic seaboard it is also shown that the tendency is towards lower lines of latitude ; that is to say, the five ports north of the Potomac liav ing this season received direct from the points of production ODly 441,700 bales, against 452,517 in 1879 80—a falling off of 40,051 bales. On the other hand, the Atlantic ports south of the Potomac have.handled 2.434,643 bales—an en largement of 25 per cent, over the figures of last season. Norfolk has gained 24 per cent., Charleston 37, Wilmington 50 and Savannah 16 per cent. In view of these figures, our coternporary concludes it is satisfied that "this deflection of the cotton trade toward lower lines of lati tude will not be temporary, but it is the beginning of a reaction which will turn the movement back into its normal channels. The necessities which im pelled the railways to haul cotton against the trade draft at starvation rates no longer exist, and with the new business to be opened up by the extension of the lines to the Pacific coast and across the Ilio Grande, the natural laws of com merce will be allowed to direct the sta pie to the best neighboring seaboard market.” An Amusing Mistake. A Wash ington dispatch says: “A few days ago Senator Conger, of Michigan, called at the house of Mr. Blaine after business hours, expecting to find him at home. Mr. Blaine, however, had been detained at the State Department. Mr. Conger requested that the telephone be used to ascertain when the Secretary would get home. The servant, who misunderstood Mr. Conger when he gave his name, went to the telephone, signaled the State Department, and gravely informed Mr. Blaine that Mr. Conkling was at Ins house, very desirous to see him, and would like to know when he would be home. Mr. Blaine was thunderstruck. He knit his brows, ran his hands through the remnants of his hair, and requested that the name of the gentle man who wanted to see him should be repeated. "Conkling,” came back again through the telephone. "Conkling,” repeated the Secretary, soito voce, "what can he mean?” and still doubting, the suggestion was made that there must be some mistake. Mr. Conger was then appealed to to know if he had not said his name was ConkliDg, and he then pronounced it intelligibly enough to be understood by the able domestic, who sent it this time all right through the telephone, and Mr. Blaine was relieved of any fears he had as to the presence of his arch enemy in his household.” — ►♦-*—-( A New York young woman twice at tempted to drown herself; next she tried to kill herself by biting a vein; then she took Paris green; at another time she swallowed laudanum; later 6he tried to throw herself from a car window; after this, setting fire to her hair, she tried to burn hei self to death; then she made several other unsuccessful attempts, after which she was arrested while on the way to the river to throw herself in. A California millionaire, who a dozen years ago was driving a street car in San Francisco, has just rented a cottage at Newport for the season, paying rental of $4,500. A PLOT REVEALED. Preparations lor au Immense Ex press Robbery lu Chicago. Startling discoveries were made by the police of Chicago Sunday morning in consequence of the arrest of a well known thief, named Sam Hanna. Among other things learned were par ticulars of an attempt to waylay and rob the United States Express’ Company's messenger on the Dubuque route, whose safe on every trip contains all the way from fifty thousand to half a mil lion dollars. It seems that the express company has been missing packages of ali kinds from the delivery wagons. These robberies have been going on for several weeks, and the losses now amount to several thousand dollars. Through Hanna’s arrest Sun day morning it, was learned that the driver was in the habit of posting Han na as to the route, and when the latter was seen on the street corner the driver would throw him packages. He dis closed the secret to a chum, with whom he subsequently had a falling out. Asa means of revenge the chum gave the po lice pointers. The driver was arrested, and gave the plans of the contemplated messenger robbery, which was to have taken place in a dark neighborhood, near the Clinton street depot, from which these trains now leave. Sitting Bull’s Story of tho Custer Massacre. Sitting Bull, the desperate Indian lead er, has recently told the story of the Cus ter massacre to Major Crozier. He began his account of the engagement by saying that ‘ on the morning of the battle, at sunrise, two young men who had been out a short way on the prairie, came to me and told me that from the top of a high butte they had seen the troops ad vancing in two divisions. I then had all the horses driven into the camp and corraled between the lodges. About noou the troops came up, and at once rushed upon the camp. They charged in two separate divisions, one at the up per end, whilst the other division charged about the middle of the camp. The latter division struck the camp ?h the centre of the 250 lodges of the Uncapapa Sioux, and close to the door of my own lodge. At the time that the troops charged I was mak ing medicine for the Great Spirit to help us and fight upon our side, and as I heard the noise and knew what it was, I came out. Wncn I had got to the out side of my lodge I noticed that this di vision had stopped suddenly close to the outer side of the Uncapapa camp, and then they sounded a bugle and the troops fired into the camp. (Here Sitting Bull made a peculiar noise with his mouth and clapped his hands together to imi tate the firing of soldiers.) lat once set my wife upon my best horse, put my war-bonnet on her head, and told her to run away with the rest of the wo men. She did so, but in her hurry forgot to take the baby (a girl); after she had gone a little way she thought of the child and came back for it. I gave the child to her and she went off again. I now put a flag upon a lodge pole, and lifting it as high as I could, I shouted out as loud as I was able to my own men: Tam Sitting Bull; follow me.’ I then rushed at the head of them up to the place where I thought Custer was, and just as we got close up to the troops they fired again. (Here Bull again imitated for some length of time the firing of the troops.) When I saw that the soldiers fired from their saddles and did but little damage to us, I ordered all my men to rush through their ranks and break them, which they did, but failed to break the ranks, although we suffered as little damage as before. I then shouted to them to try again, and, putting myself at the head of my men, we went at them again. This time, al though the soldiers were keeping up a rapid firing (from their horses), we knocked away a whole corner and killed a great many, though I had only one man killed. After this we charged the same way several times, and kept driv ing them back for about half a mile, killing them very fast. After forcing them back, there only remained five soldiers of this division and the inter preter alive. I told my men to let them live. Then the interpreter, the man that the Indians called ‘The White,’ shouted out in Sioux, and said: “Cus ter is not in this division. He is in the otner.’ I then ordered all my men to come on and attack the other division. They did so, and followed me. The soldiers of this division fired upon us as soon as we got within range, but did us little harm. When we had got quite close, and we were just going to charge them, a great storm broke right over us; the lightning was fearful, and struck a lot of the soldiers and horses, killing them instantly. I then called out to my men to charge the troops, and shouted out: ‘The Great Spirit is on our side! Look how he is striking the soldiers down!’ My men saw this, and they all rushed upon the troops, who were mixed up a good deal. About forty of the soldiers had been dismounted by the lightning killing and frightening their horses, and these men were soon trampled to death. It was just at this time we charged them, and we easily knocked them off their horses and then killed them with our ‘coup sticks.’ In this way we killed all this division, with the exception of a few who tried to get away but were killed by the Sioux before they could get far. All through the battle the soldiers fired very wild, and only killed twenty-five Sioux. I did not recognize General Custer in the figlut. but only thought I did, but I would not be certain about it. I believe Custer was killed in the first attack, as we found his body, or what all the Indians thought’ was Custer’s body, about the place that it was’ made. I do not think there is any truth in the report that he shot him self. I saw two soldiers shoot them selves. The Sioux were following them, and in a few moments would have caught them, but they shot themselves with their pistols in the head. The body which ali the Indians said was Custer’s had its hair cut short. There were seven hun dred and nine Americans killed. We counted them, putting a stick upon each body, and then taking the sticks up again and counting them. We counted seven hundred and seven carbines. Two might have fallen into the creek.” When Bull had completed the forego ing account of the battle, he turned to Major Crozier and said: “There, I have fought the battle all over again to you, and this I have never done since the time I fought it out in earnest with General Custer.” The Mormon questiou is reviving again in certain quarters. We are glad, says au exchamre, that the Mormon “mission aries” find no rest for the soles of their feet in Germany, although it is good rid dance to have them outside of the United States. News has been received from Berlin that every Mormon propagandist who has been trying to make proselytes will be expelled from the German Em pire. As this method of procedure could not be followed in this country, the Methodist suggests the method of political colonization. It says: “We could, if we had the courage and the purpose, check Morinonism at its central seat by the use of the simple and perfectly natural system of colonization. In that way, in point of fact, Kansas and Nebraska were made free States. The Christian Church has the means,and can lay its hands on the necessary agents. The work requires no high order of tal ent, no great statesmanship. The thing to do is to put Christian (or Gentile) vo ters into Utah and the threatened adja cent Territories in such numbers as to just simply outvote the Mormons. We do not need to go abroad for the bulk of these voters; they can be found at home. Ten millions of dollars, wisely expend ed, would probably settle the Mormon question.” Fratricide in Massachusetts. — Chas. D. Kidder, thirty five years old, a well known resident of Springfield, Mass., and traveling salesman for a Bos ton dry goods house, was murdered at 10 o’clock Tuetday night by his half brother, Dwight,* aged seventeen. Dwight became very angry two or three days ago because Charles said it was gross carelessness of him to let their sick father go out on the street, and the brothers had since had words about it. Tuesday night Dwight called at Charles’ house, and asked him if he was ready to take back his words. Charles told him to go home, and tried to push him from the door, when the boy drew a pistol and shot Charles dead through the heart. The lad then ran away, but will probably be caught. The Way to Increase the Wealth of the South. Neiv Orleans Times. The wealth of the South is increas ing. It is not increasing, however, as rapidly as the wealth of the North. There was a time when of the two sec tions the South was the richer. There is no good reason why she should not contain the most wealth now. Her ad vantages for the accumulation of wealth are greater. Her climate is better and her soil is equally fertile. Why is it then that the North has been so much more successful in the accumula tion of wealth ? The chief rea son is that the North has not only enjoyed the profit of her own pro ductions, but has, also, made a great profit on the productions of the South. For example, it is stated that in 1860 Mississippi produced one million bales of cotton which brought her thirty-five millions of dollars. This was the entire income of the State. In the same year Massachusetts manufactured three hun dred thousand bales of cotton into cot ton cloth which she sold for thirty-six and a half millions of dollars. The manufacture of cotton goods was only one of the industries of Massachusetts, but it brought her more money than the entire product of the single industry of Mississippi. It is probable that a very large part of the profit of the cotton crop of Mississippi went into the pockets of Northern manu facturers for merchandise of one kind and another consumed by the people of Mississippi. The same condi tion of affairs which existed in 1860 ex ists, to a very considerable extent, to day, and will continue to exist until the South manufactures the raw material which she produces. Why should not the South manufacture not only the cot ton and woolen goods which she needs, but, also, agricultural implements and machinery of various kinds which she uses on her plantations? She has coal, iron and timber, and there is no reason why she should not supply her own wants. If cotton can be transported to Connecticut and Massachusetts, manu factured there and brought back here at a profit, there is no reason why it cannot be manufactured here where it is produced profitably. As long as the North is allowed to make the profit out of the raw materials of the South, which the South ought to make herself, the North will be the richer sec tion. There is one industry of which the South was shrewd enough to obtain control. It is the manufacture of oil cake and oil from cotton seed. A little more than a dozen years ago cotton seed was regarded as worthless except for planting. It was discovered that two very valuable articles of commerce could be made out of it. To day the manufactured products of cot ton seed enrich the South millions of dollars annually. Of the productions of Texas, cotton seed oil and oil cake rank third in value. Cotton ranks first and cattle second. The number of cotton seed oil factories is increasing rap dly. That which was thought to be of no value a few years ago will, in all proba bility, by the time the next census is taken, add more than anything else to the wealth of the cotton States except cotton itself. It is remarkable that the enterprising New Eaglanders did not get control of the cotton seed oil industry. The question arises why cannot we manufacture our cotton into cotton cloth as well as we can manufacture cotton seed into oil and oil cake? We can and ought. The cotton States, instead of furnishing the raw material to the cotton factories of Europe and New England, ought to supply the markets of the world with cotton goods. Cotton ought to be manufactured where it is produced, and the millions of dollars which are annually made by the manufacture of cotton goods ought to be distributed in the cotton States. When that time comes and we are confident it will come, the cotton States will surpass the New England States in wealth. John Chinaman. While in Hong Kong, writes a corres pondent, I accepted the invitation of Consul Mosby to visit the steamship Gaelic and see how Chinamen were shipped to the United States. There were 458 men aud one woman. The Chinamen were all on deck with a rope stretched around them. At a desk near by were three offlcers.the doctor, the har bor-master, and the United States Con sul. These Chinamen had bought their tickets, but, unless they could pass the doctor’s inspection, the harbor master would not stamp their ticket, and if the harbor master would not stamp then ticket, the United States Consul would not stamp their ticket, and if the Consul did not stamp their ticket, the Mail Company would not take it. These Chinamen had their clothes unbuttoned and laid off down to their waists. The doctor ex amined every one honestly and faith fully, and did not object to a single one. Every one was in a good state of health. On the doctor’s certificate the harbor master stamps the ticket, and on his cer tificate the American Consul also stamps the ticket, and on his stamp the Captain takes it. Before a woman can be shipped, she has to go down to the To Wah Hos pital and have stamped on her arm a certificate that she was a proper person to come to America. All the precautions that laws have fixed, as far as the examinations of China men, are honestly carried out under the present administration, or were on that trip. I was anxious to see some evidence of a careless manner of doing it. I must say they carefully did it. While these Chinamen were all in the string I came in and looked at them. One of them said: ‘ Hallo, Mister, I sabbe your bludder. He marry up in Slacla mento.” I said, “John what do you know?” He said, “I live in Slaclamento eight year; 1 make $3,000; Icomehome; I catcbee two wives; I lose all; now I go back again.” I said, “Kearney will catch you and hang you.” He said, “Oh, no; me go and do Kearney’s wash ing.” Most of them were Chinese who were returning to the United States, The Administration Laboring for the Disgrace of Its Own House hold. Nashville American. The administration cackles every time it finds anew rascal who has had some of the star ring money, as if it were re joiced that there was a star ring for it to ferret out. Really we can see no occa sion in these exposures for anything but tears of mortification from the adminis tration, such as a father would shed on finding his child guilty of evil practices. An honest man would certainly go to the bottom, even for his child’s sake; but he would not be found cackling about it, as if one should say; See how honest I am, how zealous in pursuit of villainy. At best the admin istration is but laboring for the disgrace of its own household. This is right, but we do not see and cannot approve un seemly exultation. Poor Dorsey was close political akin to the President, In fact, they were thick as thieves until the administration saw an opportunity to make reputation out of a friend in distress. It would have pleased us to have seen Mr. Garfield bear the knife and stab like Brutus, but also we should have been pleased to see some natural tears shed over the friend by the man who slew the guilty part of him. We would have liked to have seen the President in tears at the bedside of poor Dorsey. Was be not wounded in your service, James ? It is all inexpressibly sad. and not very creditable to the ad ministration, that it thus seems even to rejoice that its own* family thus furnish it means for the demonstration of its zeal in pursuit of thieves. A Fated Family.— A special from Little Rock, Arkansas, to the New Or leans Times says: “Some time since John Reed, a man killer of Washington county, was shot and killed by Deputy Sheriff Bahn Sorrell while resisting ar rest. Deceased had killed three men. Yesterday at Fayetteville, county seat of Washington, Geo. F. Reed, brother of the deceased, rode into town armed to the teeth, and claimed he could whip the best man in the State, and proposed to run the town to suit himself. The City Mar hal, Will F. Stieman, armed himself and attempted to arrest him. A desperate light ensued, during which Stieman killed Reed. Great excitement prevails, and fears are felt that more blood will be shed.” ——►*-•-* A good looking old German with long hair sat down, or rather up, in the bar ber’s chair, and was asked whether he would have his hair shingled. He re plied: “Mein Kottr, no! I vant some hair koot off. Vy woot you put zum shingles oo it pecause?” The Brand of Falsehood Burned In. From Mr. Davie’ "Rise and Fall of the Southern Confederacy." Gen. Sherman, in his “Memoirs” (Vol. 11., page 349), referring to a con versation between himself and Gen. Johnston at their first meeting, writes: "I told him I could not believe that he or Gen. Lee, or the officers of the Con federate army, could possibly be privy to acts of assassination, but I would not say as much for Jeff. Davis, George Saunders and men of his stripe.” On this I have but two remarks to make: First, that I think there were few officers in the Confederate army who would have permitted such a slanderous imputation to be made by a public enemy against the Chief Executive of their gov ernment. Second, that I could not value the good opinion of the man who, in re gard to the burning of Columbia, made a false charge against General Wade Hampton, and, having left it to circu late freely for ten years, then in his published memoirs makes this disgrace ful admission: “In my official report of this confla gration I distinctly charged it to Gen. Wade Hampton, and confess I did so pointedly, to shake the faith of his peo ple in him,” etc. A letter in the Boston Olobe tells about a Colorado doctor whose idea was that insane persons should be treated just as if they were sane. To demonstrate the correctness of his theory he and his wife started a private asylum at a rural resort not far from Denver. They had three patients to experiment with, one a young girl inclined to melancholia, and another a big negro inclined to all sorts of eccen tricities. The patients were allowed to wander around the institution at will, and within a few days rather upset the doctor’s theory. The girl followed the bent of her inclinations by drowning herself, and the negro followed his by beating the doctor and his wife half to death. The surviving patient was re moved, and while the doctor was await ing another chance to test his theory, he went crazy himself. He evidently’ had not far to go. An investigation of the business meth ods of the Brooklyn (N. Y.) Board of Education has been progressing for some time, growing out of allegations that a deficiency exists in their cash. The ap parent deficit was explained by the board as only an apparent one, and due to heavy purchases of books and school supplies, the credits for which are not yet available. Tuesday it was found that the safe of the board, which had not been opened by the employes for two days, had been rifled of large' quan tities of vouchers, account books and other papers, apparently of no value to any one but the board. A package was received in the New York postoftice Saturday from London, England, which contained four leases, handsomely engrossed on large sheets of parchment. They were sent to this country for the signature of the party to whom they were addressed, and were intended to lie returned to England. The parchment documents, however, were completely destroyed by the ravages of rats on shipboard. The cost of engross ing the documents was S7O, and a claim for that amount has been made upon the English Government. Jvuif, <&tt. WHAT? This is not a conundrum.
