NO. 3 WHITAKER STREET, (MORNING NEWB BUILDING). j. H. ESTILL, Proprietor. jr. - ' = ff.T.THQgPIOS, Editor. JUNE 27, 1881. I “Mr. Garfield seems to have the pole. > BonnerTeditonal. “Horsey” but apt. Editor Medill compares Roscoe’s hi l&ritv in the midst of his woes to the double shuffle of the condemned on the g&llows. Sessions may, in his line, be conceded to take the cake. He brags that, at an early period of his career he learned, -when sucking eggs, to throw away the shells.” Windom’s slow up in the Treasury hunt has excited the ingenuity of divers journals to explain it. The Bangor Commercial tersely supplies the data | when it remarks that he “found Dad I Sherman under the Hay.” “General Grant is surprising the nation I by these free utterances of personal dis appointment,” the Cincinnati Gazette | gavs, “and is consuming at an extrava gant rate the great fame which the for tune Of war shed about him.” An exchange appears to have heard ; from the shade of G. W. It says: “I see that it is proposed to erect a monu ment to Iroquois. Give him mine.” — George Washington. George undoubted ly refers to the national stone pile at Washington, now two hundred feet above the earth: and the idea is not a bad one. The work typifies a race against time. The great American public, nauseated with Grant’s drivel, must, forsooth, swal low Beecher’s twaddle. This is an off year, and the holy man of Plymouth Church is saturated with free trade and pseudo friendship for the South. He will be found on deck, however, when required, among the loudest-mouthed loyalty peddlers. His opinion on any thing has long ceased to have a value. The Binghamton Republican takes a rosy view of the corruption at Albany, and says the party will be purified and glorified when the corruptionists are shelved. The World knocks its air castle into smithereens by reminding it of the doctor who took an eighty pound tumor from a woman, and was in doubt when felicitated on his skill whether he took the tumor from the woman or the woman from the tumor. The invincible prejudice of Northern organs will permit them to stop short of nothing.

P. Langley, director of the Alleghany Observatory, has been fur nished by a citizen of Pittsburg, Pa., with means to defray the cost of the re quisite apparatus and the incidental ex penses of an expedition to determine the actual amount of heat given by the sun to the earth. The expedition must seek one of the most elevated summits on the continent, in an extremely arid region, these two conditions being essential. These are only to be found combined in • Arizona and Southern California. - ■■ - P One of the street car companies of Philadelphia averages dividends of 32 per cent, annually, another gives 56 per cent. The stock of the Citizens’ line is now worth $1,930 per SIOO paid in. And yet these companies refuse to re duce their fares to five cents, because they cannot afford it. Both the citizens and City Council have endeavored to secure a reduction but find it impossible. In all charters to companies in future, however, an express provision will be made that they shall not charge more than five cents. Pour years ago, as everybody will re member, the city of Pittsburg was great - ,ly damaged by a mob, a number of cars and buildings being sacked. The county of Alleghany, in which the city of Pitts burg is situated, has just finished satis fying the claims for damages against it for the losses incurred in these riots. The total cost of the trouble is now found to be $2,050,000, a good deal less than the first estimate. It is a pretty large riot bill, however, and the Pitts burg officials will probably be less slow in moving against a mob the next time a disturbance begins. The seventeen-year locust, which last appeared in the West in 1864, and the thirteen year locust, whose last public appearance was in 1868, are both due in (he West this year, a coincidence which has not occurred before since 1660, and will not occur again till 2102. Appre hensions are expressed for the wheat and other crops on account of this double visitation, but this cicada is not the grass and grain eating grasshopper of the Rocky Mountain variety. They injure only trees and shrubbery. The damage to fruit trees is often serious, but, should the visitors be ever so many, it cannot, as suggested, affect the gram market in the least.

Among the thousands of gallant hearts that were stilled forever during the tre mendous struggle wherein the heroes of the Southland won undying fame by the grandeur of their endurance and tb # splendor of their courage, none wove greener chaplets than the youth and flower of Florida. The valor that wrought such prodigies at Olustee shone transcendent where gleamed the banners .of the grand old army of Northern Virginia, and wherever brav- was demanded, whether in the splendor of the charge or the perils of the retreat, the sons of Florida never quailed. The story of the Southland has passed into history. In its cold, clear light, whose searching rays give no place to the fitful play of envy and detraction, the motives of our heroes and the value of their deeds will appear as they de serve. A generation has passed and another has arisen since the volume of Southern endurance was closed, but the men that survived the perils and the hardships of the conflict go ud and down among us and challenge our admiration and re gard. But they that come not back, and who lie ’neath the turf whereon they fell, or in sight of the homes they bat tled to defend, in spirit press “A greener sod Than Fancy's feet have ever trod.” They are enshrined in our memories, and the guerdon of their fame is ever cherished. But it was fitting that our heroes should have memorials more lasting than the fond remembrance of their contem poraries, and from the placid shores of the Chesapeake to the sunny plains of Texas fit mementoes rise that shall tell to coming ages the story of the men that died for the grand faith they chose. The fair daughters of Tallahassee have, with the spontaneity and nobility that have ever characterized the women of the South, erected a testimonial to the heroes that sleep within the precincts of the capital. The survivors of Perry’s Brigade, how ever, formed the purpose of procuring a common monument to the dead of Flori da, to be placed at Tallahassee, which by its character and the record it contained should testify the feelings of 'the people of the plucky little commonwealth for the men who died in its defense. A committee was appointed, upon which each county in the State is represented, to solicit contributions to the memorial fund. This committee will report at the next meeting of the survivors of Perry’s Brigade, to be held in Tallahassee July 14 h. The survivors of Finley’s Brigade will also be present, and it is hoped that gratifying progress may be reported, Geneial Perry writes to Colonel W. D. Ballantinc, of this city, formerly of Florida, whom he has enlisted in behalf of the memorial project, that Mrs. Perry, a representative lady, of Florida, has already procured the promise of over $l,lOO from Escam bia county alone, where were recruited the vanguard of Florida’s heroes. A commensurate liberality on the part of the other counties will assure the success of the movement. In this noble work we of Savannah, united as we are with the people of Florida by so many ties, should be proud to join. We have raised to our own heroes a memorial that in vites the judgment of the critic and com mands the admiration of the patriot. Colonel Ballantine will be thankful for any co-operation he may meet w ith, and we invite all to join in a generous re sponse. In honoring our dead we have hon ored Georgia, and reaffirmed the justice of the stand she took. In honoring the dead of a sister State, we perpetuate in lasting marble the fellow feeling, the generous rivalry, the community of pur pose, and the unity of action that marked the defenders of the ill-starred but glo rious protest made in behalf of the teach ings and traditions of our fathers. Governor Stone, of Mississippi, has written a letter m which he strongly favors the encouragement of immigra tion. He says “no stone should be left unturned, no step untried, to bring to Mississippi some portion of that enor mous stream cf immigration which now. as never before, is pouring into the country." He declares that ample means should be placed at the command of the Commissioner of Immigration, publications should be made and dis tributed, permanent agencies should be established in New York, with branch offices in Europe, and in every way possible immigrants should lie encour aged to come among and be of the peo ple of Mississippi. In this way only, urges Governor Stone, can the waste places be built up and Mississippi cease to exhibit the painful spectacle of a soil which will yield an annual product of from twenty five to fifty dollars an acre selling at from five to ten. The latest “new departure” in news paper enterprise is reported from New Orleans, La. The Democrat of that city has fitted up a branch office on a barge, which, having been towed up the Mis sissippi river to Memphis, is now float ing down to New Orleans again, stopping at all points of interest on the way to gather information concerning the coun try along the river and for some distance back into the interior. The barge is sixty feet long, with twelve feet width of beam. Its interior accomodations comprise business, editorial and job of fices, composing and press rooms, sleep ing apartments, dining room, kitchen, and stable for the horses used in making land trips back from the river. It is practically a fully equipped newspaper establishment afloat Tiie Resources and Trade of New Mexico. —New Mexico has already a large population, but it will support in future in easy many mil lions. for its area is i21,000 square miles, equal to Great Britain. According to the San Francisco Journal of Commerce, “there are many old Spanish grants con taining excellent land, which to day can be bought in large quantities at a few cents per acre, which bye and-bye will be worth a good many dollars. A great trade can be developed with it even now. There are many California goods which it will need, and many others where we can compete with the East. Possession is nine points of the law, and they who obtain this trade first are likely to con tinue to hold it.” I.n Dispute.— The Texas and Pacific Railroad grant of lands, west of the Rio Grande, said to have reverted to the government by means of failure on the part of the company to construct the road within the time prescribed, appears to be in dispute between that company and the Southern Pacific, the latter hav ing passed through the countiy of the granted lands, and laid claim to them under the terms stated in the govern ment grant. As J. Gouli is largely in terested in the latter company, a big fight is expected before the matter is ended. ‘Senatorial Courtesy” Treason te the Constitution. In the convention that framed the Con stitution of the United States, two dan gers ever overshadowed the debates. One, the fear of a consolidated republic, in which the individual political charac ter of the States would be absorbed. The other, a dread of excessive democracy, tending to anarchy. The one, it was thought, would end in a monarchy. The other, it was feared, would expose the people to the duplici ties of pretended patriots. In both, the liberties and general welfare of the States were in danger of wreck; by one despot, in a monarchy; or by five hun dred factious demagogues in an irres ponsible democracy. All the delegates agreed in the wish to organize a general government that should be adequate to common defense, general welfare and the security of liberty to themselves and their posterity, but, as usual, they dif fered as to the means by which these results were to be attained. It was, therefore, a difficult problem to establish a general government that should be supreme, and yet not destroy the States, and with power, nevertheless, to enforce its mandates. Hence, every paragraph of the Constitution was care fully prepared, keenly criticised, and only adopted after the mo3t careful scrutiny. As the result of such profound deliberation, the convention gave to the country the most thorough system of constitutional government known in polity. A form of government in which the separation of legislative, executive and judicial powers is as marked and distinct as is practical in their mutual re lations to government, and in which the grants and distributions of powers are well defined—some emphatically so. Of this last class—of dogmatic powers —is the second clause, second section, article eleven of the Constitution, which says that the President of the United States shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shaU appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States, whose appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shaU be established by law. Italics are ours. To the President, then, and to the President alone, does the Constitution give the power (not the right, mark,) “to nominate ,” and, the Senate consulted and agreeing “to appoint?' the officers as above. Being a mandatory grant of power to the President alone, it cannot be shared with or waived in favor of any other person or department of the General Government; nor can Senators, members of the second branch of the Legislative Department, claim any latent or inherent ability or right to direct or dictate the nominations, their duty being confined to advising upon them, after they have been submitted to the Senate for consent or dissent, to con firmation and appointment. As the Representatives in Congress, how ever, are the political exponents of the sentiments of the people of their respective States, and the Senators the representatives of the States in their in dividual political capacities, it has been recognized always as wise and c mrteous for the President to consult hi'ormally with the Representatives and Senators in Congress in relation to the political ap pointments to office within their particu lar States. But in doing so, the Presi dent yields to them no part of his con stitutional prerogative to nominate; nor can they assume any positive influence in determining the nominations. The Constitution aims, m the clause, section and article quoted, to preserve the sepa ration between the legislative and execu tive functions, and thereby to secure, in so much, the liberties of the people and their general welfare, from corrupt bar gains by which ambitious and unscrupu lous men may seek to obtain unconstitu tional and consequently dangerous control of the government. No Senator can, consequently, make the tenure of his Senatorial office de pendent upon the exercise of the Presi dent’s power to nominate officers of the United States, whose appointments are established by law. And any action upon such ground is not only unconsti tutional in itself, but a total subversion of the political principles upon which the government is constructed. It is revolutionary in its very essence, as its effort is to subject the constitutional power of the President to the indi vidual will of another, who, taking advantage unduly of his official position, basely sacrifices the good faith and honor of the State he represents to the gratification of his own selfishness. For has not his State sworn by her people, by her Legislature, and by her State officers, to support the Constitution of the United States? and does he not by his course betray them all? Benedict Arnold sought to cover his defection from the revolutionary struggle by an elaborate defense of his motives, for the benefit of his country, as he had come to the conclu sion that the war was a hopeless one for the colonics. But Messrs. Conkling and Platt make no plea as plausible for abandoning the post of duty to which the State of New York had assigned them, and for fleeing from further sup port of the Constitution of their country. From a “lower deep" they urge pusilla nimously, for their desertion, “the viola tion by the President, of a corrupt bar* gun for the nomination to United States offices within the State of New York.’’ Has the Executive of this great gov ernment fallen, indeed, so low as this charge accuses? That a President should trade with the public offices in his dis posal, and he sworn solemnly to faith fully execute the office of President of the United States, and to the best of his ability preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States? It’s too much for us to credit, though we have had to accept some nasty politi cal transactions in the past twelve years. However, be that as it may, true or not true, the pleading of such abasement to cover their flight from the field of action, is as low as—nay, even worse than —the act itself. Fortunately, there were Democratic Senators enough (with a few Republicans) to protect the con stitutional power of the President and defend the dignity of the Senate when thus betrayed. And now, what will the great State of New York do in the position she has been placed by her treacherous Sena tors? We have stated the case plainly, but not too strongly. Messrs. Conkling and P.att do not constitutionally impeach the President for malfeasance in office, but charge him with breach of a rotton bargain with them for the distribution of the spoils of office. That is his offense in their eyes—the head and front of his offending. It is a personal quarrel only —nothing more—so far as the President is concerned. But with regard to the State of New York, it is undeniably a humiliation —that she should .be placed by her attorneys in a false attitude to the Constitution, in the Senate, and before her sister States. It is anew case in our political histo ry, and the rest of the States await New York’s action in the matter with anxie ty. To return either of the derelict Senators to Congress will be to endorse their official malfeasance and to inflict a grievous wound, serious if not eventual ly fatal upon our National Constitution and Union. For, although the fight is between factionists of the Republican party, the consequences of the struggle affect the future relations of the National Executive and National Senate. Is it singular, then, that we look with con cern for the action of New York in the crisis upon her? Will it be on the side of law and order, or will she approve anarchy ? In the convention that framed the Constitution it was repeatedly urged that opposition to, and interference with it was to be feared from the States in their individual political character, rather than from the people. To-day we test the justness of this apprehension. And let the members of the New York Legisla ture bear this in mind—“that its decision now, whatever it may be, goes, on ap peal, to the people in the autumn.” The prediction that within a week the half breeds will be asking Mr. Conk ling for the election of two stalwarts is not, says the Bridgeport Farmer , so im probable as it seems. They cannot af ford an adjournment before filling the two vacancies, for the very good reason that their refusal to go into caucus would be regarded by the Republican rank and file as the primary cause of the ex change of a certainty of restoring Republican supremacy in the United States Senate for the dubious chance of doing so through the agency of a new Legislature. This would probably end half-breed influence in New York politics, and ensure the choice of a stal wart delegation to the next Republican National Convention. Besides, the energy with which the investigation into legislative corrupt on is being pushed by the packed stalwart committee appointed by Speaker Sharpe, is threatening the reputations of some of the half breed managers, and they may become glad to escape by the compromise of the choice of two stalwarts and a hurried adjourn ment. The Press as an Educator. —Sena- tor Matthew W. Ransom, in his address at Davidson College, North Carolina, glorified the vastness and possibilities of the republic, and incidentally said there was one school even more powerful than the regular educational institutions, and that was the newspaper. “Although editors,” he said, “might differ in the expression of opinion, discussion would only serve in the end to bring out the truth in one harmonious whole, as the prismatic colors ot the rainbow are transformed into the beautiful arch which sometimes spans the heavens. The safety of the liberties of the people was in the keeping of a free, fearless, in dependent, but not licentious press. General Lee at one time contemplated the establishment of a chair of journal ism at the Washington University of Virginia, and the very suggestion was a monument to his genius. Finally, the restoration and nourishment of this fair Southland could only be performed through the medium of the press.” The Louisville Courier - Journal's Washington correspondent say3 that “if Gen. Longstreet does not attempt to re organize the Republican party in Georgia, on the Mahone plan, minus the Readjuster element, he will disappoint the hopes of those who first moved his appointment as United States Marshal. They certainly expect him to act as their leader, and so represented to the Presi dent, who approved of the plan. It would be interesting t'o know what is ‘the Mahone plan, minus the Readjuster element.’ ” It matters very little whether General Longstreet does or does not “attempt to reorganize the Republican party in Geor gia on the Mahone plan.” In either case the “hopes” of those who look for a split in the Democratic party aud the triumph of Radicalism under the lead of General Longstreet or any other political apostate are doomed to disappointment. The New Casino.— For some time past Mr. Rudolph Aronson has been diligently and quietly engatred in the organization of a company for the pur pose of erecting in New York city a building of original design, in a central locality, which will combine an open air summer garden, to be constructed on the roof, a conceit hall, theatre and ball room; in fact, a building which can be used for entertainments every evening throughout the year. The hall proper is to be sufficiently large to accommodate 3,000 people. A stage will occupy the rear, so that the place can be used as a theatre, or if necessary speedily changed into a grand ball room. The cost of the entire structure will be SIOO,OOO, and be known as the “Casino.” Negotiations are now pending with the world renown ed maestro Herr Strauss to inaugurate the summer season concerts of 1882. In an article on the rate of interest in the International Review Mr. Edward Atkinson predicts that “the normal rate of interest will probably bo very low for a long period,” and “that United States consols at 3 per cent, could be sold at par and would be more likely to maintain their value than the bonds of Great Britain w-apy nation.” An added but needless proof that Hayes favored Wall street when he vetoed the funding bill, and that Windom is giviDg away the people’s money at the rate of half a cent on the dollar when he allows 3£ per cent, interest on the bonds when three would be willingly taken.
