Ciar oowfiuat he goes about without an escort. It is to be presumed, however, that his travels are not very extensive. Wnittaker has at last taken a step in the right dtrection. He nas determined to quit slitting ms ears, to abandon the lecture held and go to work. If ne sticks to ms resolve he may accomplish some thing yet. One of the conditions of the “Jehad,” or holy war of the Mohammedans, is that it cancels all deots, public aud private. There are doubtless lots of United States American Christians who are Moham medans to that extent, and who would be willing to declare a Jehad to-morrow. The Prohibitionists are claiming that at their National Convention in Chicago ou the 22d, 23d, and 24th inst., there will be assembled the largest number of tem perance workers ever gathered in dele gate convention in this country. Nearly every Stale in the Union is to be repre . sen ted. The unports of foreign merchandise at New York during the week were about of the usual average volume, their total being $9,113,353, of which $5,950,705 represented general merchandise and the remainder dry goods. Since January 1 they aggregate $312,753,321, compared with $207,397,147 for the corresponding period of 1331. The Dispatch arrived safely in New York with its precious freight all safe, and with the new Presidential dag dying gallantly from the masthead, last Satur day, Its distinguished passenger, “Chet,” on landing, drove directly to his home on Lexington avenue, where he positively refused to see all odice-seekers, stating that he had personal business to which he desired to attend. The promptness of Mr. Parnell in throwing cold water on the hot headed Philadelphia land leaguers who wished to support Arabi in his dght with Eng land will havj a good effect on others of a like way of thinking. Parnell has proven himself tne most capable and sagacious leader of the Irish since Grat tan, and his counsel is fully as worth heeding now as it ever was. Mr. AL Tuornton, of Atlanta, the self appointed Chairman of a mythical "lib eral” party in Georgia, some time ago published a call for a conference of his party in that city for the 15th instant (yesterday). It was not numerously at tended, as we gather from our dispatches that the entire assemblage consisted of . three spectators and three newspaper men. In consequence the show adjourn ed over to wait for an audience. It will puzzle most people to discover what is the advantage of having a ma jority if it cannot do as it desires within the law. The Republicans have a ma jority in both branches, and increased it in the House by familiar methods. If that majority is not responsible for the work of the session, who is? The Re' publican organs are wrestling manfully with the problem, but have thus far failed to explain it to their satisfaction. Lord Salisbury, the Conservative lead er, or, as he is familiarly called, the “Grand Old Woman,” in contradistinc tion to the “Grand Old Man,” the soubri quet of Gladstone, is in the dumps. The House of Lords declined his invita tion to butt their heads against the wall of public opinion on the Irish arrears of rent bill. Lord Cairnes, the ex-Lord Chancellor, is looming up as his likely successor. He is reckoned as one of the most clear-headed of the Conservatives. The Boston Traveller, an able negro philist, remarks that thus far the Repub licans of Massachusetts have not nominated a colored man for office, and are not likely to do so at present, but that the time will come when it will be done. Its first two statements are “frozen facts,” but as Cuffie is not nu merous in the Bay State he will be apt to think as to the last statement that now is about as good a time as any. The Cincinnati Commercial thinks Mr. Stephens will make an excellent Gov ernor. It says of him: “We believe him to be the firm friend of the Union, and imbued with such a national spirit that he is able to rise above sectional and local prejudices. During his career in Congress since the war, he has enjoyed the confidence and respect of his fellows on both sides of the House. His integ rity is above suspicion. There is nothing of the small trading and jobbing politi cian about him.” The opinion prevails in W ashington that Dorsey caused his letter to Garfield, in which he impudently advised the President to consult Arthur and Conk ling about his Cabinet, to be published just at this time in the hope of inducing the administration to relax its pressure for a conviction of the star route gang. Whether his hope has been realized or not is not known, though his friends have been claiming with unusual posi tiveness during the past few days that he would not be convicted. The Northern press to a great ex tent get furiously angry whenever a Southern paper speaks with satisfaction of the fact that about $4,000,000 is to be expended on the improvement of the Mississippi. That is always the way. Hundreds of millions of public money an be spent in the North and it is all right, even though the expenditure re sults only in benefit to that section. But when a few millions are to be spent on a work of national importance it is all wrong, because the expenditure is to be made in the South. Among the measures signed by the President on the last day of the recent session of Congress were the joint reso lutions for a commission to investigate the decline of American shipping, and a bill to encourage telegraphic commuti cation with Europe. This bill provides for the incorporation of anew ocean telegraph company, and grants it the needed franchises. It also makes specific provision agi’nst consolidation with other companies and watering of stock, and limits the charge for all messages to twenty cents a word. It is believed that if the company is put into operation under these restrictions there will be some chance of breaking down monopoly ynH maintaining competition. American Capitalists and the South. The American Bankers Association will assemble at Saratoga to day, and re main in session two days. The session will be one of unusual interest to the whole country, since it will be largely at tended by representatives of Chambers of Commerce and Boards of Trade and a number of papers will be read, and discussion had thereon, on such matters as “the currency of the future, “ans tional bankrupt law,” ' the future pros pects of the South, and the inducements offered to capitalists to invest in this section,” and many other topics of gene ral importance. The interest felt in the future of the South by this association of American capitalists is exceedingly encouraging as well as significant It is well known how sensitive is capital, and while it is ever on the alert for investment, yet how the fortunate possessor thereof is always exceedingly careful not to place his means in any venture or any enterprise until he is pretty well assured before hand that he stands at least a very good chance of safety for his principal, and of receiving besides a fair interest When, there fore, we see the assembled capitalists of the United States turning their eyes in this direction, it may be accepted as proof positive that our section is enjoy ing all the present prosperity which is being claimed for her, and that her ca pacities for further development are un doubted, and offer fine field for profita ble investments. Much substantial benefit then will most probably be experienced by our section from this session of the Bankers’ Association, for that the result of its discussions over the future of the South cannot but be favorable to the investment of capital in our midst, is an assured fact. The amazing recuperative powers of the South have been fully demon strated. Never in the history of the world has any country emerged from so many apparently crushing obstacles, and made so splendid a start on the high road to prosperity and wealth in so short a time as has this favored section. Ini poverished by a war in which her losses were absolutely far heavier than the total public debt of the United States at the close of the conflict; her labor system totally disor ganized; the victim for years of carpet-bag misrule and thievery, and radical oppression and malignity, her peaple, despite all these tremendous hin drances to recuperation, have borne their troubles with unexampled fortitude, and, refusing to be driven to despair or apa thy, haye steadily worked with a hero ism, bravery and industry worthy of all admiration to improve the condition of their section and themselves. The large increase of our manufactories; our ex tensive mining operations; the number of miles of railway built and building, all opening up new and desirable terri tory; our new industries already estab lished and constantly being added to — all these show how well they have suc ceeded. When the present condition of the South is compared with that in which she found herself less than two decades ago, the strides onward she has made, in the face of the well-nigh overwhelming drawbacks we have noted, are simply wonderful. It is claimed that much of the recu peration is due to Northern capital which was invested in the South after the war. This is true. No section, no people, and no individual can make headway unless asded by money. Still, after all, the in vestment of this capital was due to the superior natural advantages of the South, and the favorable prospects that the in vestments would prove profitable. Surely nothing is more certain than that not one dollar from the North has ever been ex pended here from simple love of our section, unless we except such special charities as have been extended by phil anthropists of the Peabody and Seney school. And if the South, laboring under all the disadvantages to which she was subjected -just after the war, was able to offer sufficient inducements to attract capital towards her even then, how vastly greater must these induce ments be now. The American bankers are indeed wise in determining to seriously consider the subject of using their means for the de velopment of the South, since no section can boast of greater possibilities, and experience has shown that their money will be speedily returned with handsome profits. And all the South needs is capital with which to improve the advantages with which we have been blessed by a benefi cent Providence to become the wealthiest and, consequently, the most powerful region of this entire land. Let our peo ple bend their every energy mainly to this object; let them utilize the means within their reach and determine to continue to work steadily for the advancement of their material in te rests. In short, let them but manifest the same spirit of industry, fortitude and perseverance which has characterized them since the war, and aided by the banks in securing capital, the want of which they have so long seriously felt, in another decade the South will truly blossom like a rose, and occupy an enviable and influential posi tion in the country. This will not only secure happiness to her people, but it will do more to command for her respect and to re-establish her ancient prestige than mere attention to politics can accomplish in a century. An improbable story comes from Washington "that the reason why the Democratic Congressional Committee is not working more actively is because prominent leaders of the party take the ground that it would be unfortunate for the Democracy to obtain control of the next House. They reason that in that case the Democrats would not only be oome partly responsible for legislative blunders, but with a Republican Senate and President, they could not im press a Democratic policy upon the country. Furthermore they con tend, as* is alleged, that the Re publican party has ventured upon a course of reckless extravagance, which, if continued, will sweep them from power in 1884. This story is wholy incredible. The Democrats can not entertain such foolish ideas. If the Republicans carry the next House they will probably make short work of the Treasury surplus, and having done that they will become so exceedingly economi cal that by 1884 they will deceive the people into.believing that they are very paragons of virtue. It will not do for the Democrats to run the risk of allow ing the party of high moral ideas to hang itself by giving it rope enough. Its leaders are too cute to be caught in any such trap. If carpet bagger Spencer has been invited to step down from his last snug berth the country has not been informed of it.

As is well known one of the favorite cries of the protectionists to the work ingman is that a protective tariff keeps the laborer busy and guarantees him high wages, and is indispensable for fostering our “infant industries.” Statistics fur nished by the census reports of 1880 do not verify the former assertion, however, if iron and steel—about the most heavily protected articles in common use are any criterion. These statistics, as collated by the Boston Post, show that in 1880 there were 805 companies engaged in producing iron ore, and they produced 7,971,703 tons, employing to do the work 31,668 persons, at a daily cost of $31,793, a very few cents over $1 per day for each person, which is less than the average workers in any un protected business in the country. The ttal number employed in the production of pig and bar iron and steel was 140,- 975, who received $184,922 a day, or $1 30 each, their service coming more under the head of skilled labor than that of the miners. Surely $1 30 a day on an aver age for skilled labor in one of the most protected of all our many protected in dustries, cannot be regarded as very munificent compensation, especially when, according to statistics of “Labor in Europe and America,” a special re port on that subject, published by Ed ward Young, Ph. D., Chief of the United States Bureau of Statistics in 1875, it is stated that at that time semi skilled labor in English rail and angle mills received on an average from ss. to 6s. per day. In this connection the Free Trade League, of New York, has issued a pamphlet, which deals very forcibly also with the “infant industry” plea. It says: “In the first place, our infant industries area century old. In the second, the compiler of these statistics acknowledges that our superior skill places the world at a disadvantage with us. Thirdly, our iron ore and coa! are generally situated so close together that the former can easily be worked with the latter. Fourthly, while the iron and coal of Europe are far down below the surface, ours are almost upon it. Fifthly, our iron and coal supplies are in close prox imity to the market. Sixthly, they are adjacent to the great food producing centre of the United States, which is relied upon to supply half the food eaten by the iron workers of Europe, Therefore, without any protection at all, it is shown, our iron masters could afford to pay 100 per cent, more wages to their workmen than they do, before foreign competition would affect them. ” These are very plain statements of facts and figures to show that protection neither protects wages nor our infant in dustries to the extent claimed, while the strikes which have been in progress in the West for some months past are de cidedly practical proofs that it does not keep the workingmen busy at all times and under all circumstances. But, as our Boston contemporary aptly remarks, "the protectionists do not care for demonstrations. When the next Presidential campaign comes On they will have their formulas and threats to workingmen posted up in their furnaces, factories and mills, just as they did in 1880, and not until the people who labor turn their thinking to some account,stop striking, and redress their grievances by voting, will they make a positive ad vance towards independence and better circumstances. ” An indignant “Colored Voter” of Georgia, writing to the New York Sun from Savannah, gives the reasons for the recent action of the black Republicans of this State. He does not mince his words, but talks plainly. He says: “Allow me to iDform our Northern friends that the purpose of the stand we have taken against the white Republicans ol Georgia, known as the syndicate, is to break up the gang. Wc are able to look out for our own political interests, and are in hope that these fellows will receive an appointment to go West and fight the Indians, for their game is up in Georgia, and they are played out. I believe the colored men of the South will vote the straight Democratic ticket in 1884. un less the Republicans make some effort to pay back the money out of which they swindled us in the Freedman’s Bank operations. Until that money is paid back, they must never expect any favors from us.” Here is a nut for our Northern friends, the Radicals, to crack. It is quite evi dent that Radical ste lings from, and deceptions practiced upon, the “poor African,” are, at length, like chickens, coming home to rcost, and that the negro cannot henceforth be relied on to vote the Radical ticket, simply because he is a negro. The statistics of foreign trade of the United States for June, compare very favorably with the figures for May. The imports of merchandise decreased from $68,350,029 to $62,608,536, and the ex ports increased from $49,178,968 to $50,- 959,871. But making the comparison between June of 1881 and June of 1882, the result is unfavorable to the current year. The increase of imports of mer chandise thus shown is $3,747,727, and the decrease of exports $12,490,408. The specie movement for the month shows an excess of exports of $5,825,330, against a similar excess of $1,022,152 in 1881, the imports in June, 1882, being only $1,073,823. Colonel P. W. Alexander, now residing at Marietta, was Chairman of the Nor wood Executive Committee duiing the last campaign. In an interview w.tha reporter of the Atlanta Constitution a few days sin e, he expressed the opinion that the Democratic differences of two years ago had all passed away, and the supporters of Mr. Norwood would, as a rule, support Mr. Stephens as cordially as w?ll the friends of Governor Colquitt We always contended that the nomina tion of Mr. Stephens would harmonize the Democracy of Georgia. Arabi Bey evidently thinks he is “a biger man” than Abdul Hamid, for he not only refuses to acknowledge himself a rebel upon the declaration of that offi cial, but even assumes that the Sultan himself is recreant to the faith, and should therefore be deposed. He has, in consequence, declared Abdul no longer ruler of Turkey, and has nomi nated the Sheriff of Mecca as his suc cessor. Arabi is either crazy or has determined upon playing a remarkably cheeky game. After he is whipped out he ought to come to the United States and join the Radical party. Baltimore Day: “That some Southern ne groes manage to get along comfortably with out interfering In Radical politics, appears every day. One of the most remarkable cases is that of an old man of 80, living near ttaine*ville, Ala., who, with the aeeistanceof his wife, cultivates fifteen acres in corn and ten in cotton, doing his plowing with an ox, which cost him $l5 three years ago. Last year he made three hundred bushels of corn and three bales of cotton, out of which he had to pay only $3O, and that for rent. This year he expects to raise four bales of cotton aM not less than four hundred and fifty bushels of corn, besides having meat enough for his own use another year, and about twelve hundred pounds to selL This is a much better record than that of ex- Cadet Whittaker and ex-Lieutenant Flipper, who, If they will follow the example of this old negro, may in turn become as useful cit izens. The future of the black msn at the South is all he can desire, and if he does not take advantage of the situation he will have only himself to blame.” t KNERAL NOTE'.

What may virtually be termed a mosquito plague prevails on Staten Island. Not in the memory of the “oldest inhabitant” has there been such a large swarm of unusually large torments. The nearest approach to it was In the year 1872. General McClellan, who spent a long time In Egypt several years ago, has written a paper on the present war in that country for the forthcoming Century. It contains eomp severe criticisms on tne English military methods there.” Near the end of last month snow appeared in the English Channel off the coast of Kent. A steamer on her way from Hamburg to Havre passed into and through a veritable snow storm there about 10 o’clock in the morning. It remained ten minutes in the .storm. The ship was twenty miles out to sea. A daughter of Brigham Young, a bride o* four months, when asked by a visitor, “How will you regard the taking of another wife by your husband, which, according to your code, is not only his right, but his duty, and which sooner or later you expect him to do ” replied: “Of course it is a pain ful thought, and I try to put it away from me until the time comes, but I shall accept it as a duty to my husband, and because the church requires It.” A Boston paper is responsible for the statement that the disgusting habit of snuff dipping has spread among the female ope ratives in Massachusetts factories to such an extent that fifteen tons of snuff are an nually consumed by them. A year ago the Catholic Bishop of the State publicly for bade tbis use of the weed, and for a time there was a considerable falling off in the sales of snuff, but the prohibition has now become practically a dead letter. Over a grave in Brompton Cemetery, London, has just been set up a beautful cross, on which appears the following in scription: “In memory of Elizabeth Jones, who died May 13, 1881, for fourteen years the faithful servant and friend of Alexandra, Princess of Wales, by whom this monument Is erected. Life’s race well run, life’s work well done, life’s crown well won. Now comes rest. Blessed are the dead who die in the Lotd.” Milwaukee papers say that President Arthur has promised to visit their city and view the second annual exhibition of their Industrial Exposition Association about the middle of September. While in Milwaukee the President will be tbe guest, of the Hon. Alexander Mitchell. On leaving that city he will go, as at present arranged, to Bt. Paul aud Minneapolis, and thence to Chicago and Cincinnati, in time to visit the exposi tions in all these cities. Acting on the theory that in every house there Is a skeleton in the closet, a Paris swindler sent out a number of duplicate notes to this effect: “I will reveal all unless you send a hundred francs to J.

At least ten persons promptly sent the sum demanded, and the swindler was congratulating himself upon having secured temporary affluence and a prospective fortune when the police swoop ed down upon him. The Orioles, of Baltimore, are preparing for their grand display in September, The Baltimore American, of the 10th Inst., says: Yesterday there arrived by the Baltimore aud Ohio Railroad three carloads of mystic paraphernalia to be used in the procession. The size of the floats can be imagined when each car would only accommodate one piece. The floats are made of papier mache, and were constructed in New Orleans, where the best work in the world of this character is performed. The Captain of a steamer was charged in the Police Court in Toronto, Canada, on Tuesday, with plying on Sunday between there and Niagara. The defense was that arrangements had been entered into between a railroad and the boat to carry passengers from Buffalo to Toronto on Sunday, and that tnls was a great public convenience. The magistrate held that to dismiss the case would make the Sunday law a dead letter, but he fined the defendant $4O and costs, so as to enable him to appeal, which he noti fied the court he would do. Lite reports from Varzin declare that the health of Prince Bismarck is now excellent. Public business is very ’arse at present, but he nevertheless finds time to take a great deal of physical exercise. From Berlin he receives twice a day large budgets of letters aud portfolios full of official document. Besides this, the telegraph office at Varzin 's kept constantly at work. Count Herbert has for some months been acting as bis father’s secretary, but will be relieved this mmth by his brother-in-law, Count von Rantzan. At Ktppendarne, In Scotland, has just died Mr. John Stirling, who is declared to have been the nee rest approach to a railway king that Scotland has ever had. His earliest connection with railways was with the Scottish Central Company; subsequently be was made Chairman of the Northeastern Company, and finally, in 1866, b- came Chairman of the North British, an investi gation Into the affairs of the Utter company having in that year led to the retirement of several directors. Over the affairs of tbe North British Company he presided with great ability, the qualities conspicuous in him having been unfailing courage, rate foresight and large re-ources. It was Mr. Stirling who organized and made financially possible the schemes for building the Tay and Forth bridges, enterprises which called for the highest capacity and courage. No fewer than eleven clergymen—seven of them regular military Chaplains, the rest engaged, so to speak, for the expedi tion —will embark with the troops under orders for Egypt. Of these, four belong to the Church of England, three are Roman Catholics, two are Presbyterians, and two Wesleyans. During the campaign In the Crimea there were but two Chaplains for all the troops engaged, and these were both of the English Church. One Catholic priest, Father William Strickland, went out with the troops to Sebastopol, and remained there until the end. But he was a volunteer for the work, and was paid by the Order of Jesuits, to which be oelonged. He Is said to have at one time visited between 200 aud 300 men In hospital every day. But of either Presbyterian or Wesleyan ministers there was not one, and the Anglican clergy men had to read prayers to seven or eight different congregations every Sunday. Joseph Aurlol, of Perpignan, in France, has been sentenced to Imprisonment lor life for crimes to which that punish men! seems altogether inadequate. He is a priest, and hlscrimes were the murder of two women, members of bis parish, who had shown him great kindness and over whom he had re quired great influence. Aurlol desired to elope with a ecbool teacher living in an other parish, but he had not the necessary money. Both of Ihe murdered women, whose names were Marie and Rose Fonda, were well to do. Marie was Induced by Aurlol to drink a decoction of hellebore root, from which she expired in a few hours. Her death was attributed to heart disease and she was buried, no one suspecting the foul play. A month later Rose died from a dose of prussic acid which he had given her, and In her will it was found that Aurlol was her sole heir. During his imprisonment before tbe trial Aurlol wrote a confession of both crimes, but on trial he denied that he had committed them. He was, however, found guilty of both and sentenced as alreay stated. Lords have been decidedly unpopular in Ireland during the past two years. However liberal his tendencies, to be called a lord at ail has been sufficient to engender suspicion and distrust. In the present state of things to find a lord whose selection to fill tbe office of extra commissioner under the ar rears act provokes a feeling among the peo ple akin to enthusiasm is a very remarkable circumstance. It is still more extraordinary when he is found in the person of a lord who is an extensive land owner and has held office under various governments since 1855. Viscount Monck Is the fortunate no bleman referred to. When the arrears act becomes law he Is to administer it at a sala ry of $15,000 a year. His countrymen had first an opportunity to judge of bis fairness as a Commissioner of Church Temporal 1- ties. The disposition of the church lands after tbe disestablishment brought him in contact with men of every shade of opin ion, and the universal verdict was that he has proved himself worthy of the confidence of the nation. The Irish Tory organs unite in tbe statement that property owners have reason to be well pleased with the appointment, and tbe Farnellite organs say that It will be accepted as “an augury of a liberal and judicious application of the act.” Viscount Monck has spent a great deal of time in making himself familiar with the various phases of the land question. He Is now sixty-two years old. In 1849 he succeeded his father, and three years later was elected to the British Parliament from Portsmouth He became a Lord of the Treasury ifi 1855, and held office until 1858. From 1861 to 1868 he served aa Governor General of Canada, and the Canadians have reason to remember him as one of the ablest of the Irishmen who have been at the head of its government.

Mamitta, Qa.., Aueust U-Editor Morning .Veto* .- In my last I promised an account of the excursion tendered by General Wm. Phillips to the Btate Agricultural Convention during its recent session here, and accepted by that body for Thursdsy, after its adjournment on Wednesday evening General Phillips is Vice President of the Marietta and North Georgia Railroad, which is a narrow gauge, leading from Marietta via Canton. Jasper and other North Georgia towns to Murphy, on Broad river, in North Carolina, and destined to open up to commerce and the world one of the most fertile and Interesting sections of the State of Georgia The road has had many difficulties to encounter. Two or three times work was suspended for want of capital, and it is indebt ed for the vitality which remained, I under stand, to the convict labor donated by the Btate, and the indefatigable efforts of General Phillips, who finally interested others and brought to the support of the enterprise Mr. George R. Eager, of Boston, and Mr. Joseph Kinsey, of Cincin; nati, the latter now President of the company. From his well known interest and indomitable energy in the work, the road is generally known here as ‘‘Phillips' road." and many of your readers are acquainted with the endless talk about the treatment of the convicts on his road, the visitations and inspections of his camps, etc . set on foot during the last session of the Legislature. The lengths of the road, I believe.is ninety miles from Marietta to Murphy In North Carolina.and has been graded through out Its length, except about four miles in Fan nin county, nearly in tbe centre of the line. The section of Georgia through which it passes is a continuation of that “Switzerland of America" which comprises so large a portion of East Tennessee and Western North Carolina, and abounds in picturesque and beautiful mountain scenery. The Etowah meanders at the foot of hills and mountains for more than half the length of the road, and in connection with other streams form a sort of opening or gorge through the mountainous region, which may be said to have suggested the important work now in progress as a great highway through what was before an Inacces sible region of interminable hills and moun tains. Though so nearly all graded the iron is only laid to Ball Hill, in Cherokee county, a distance of thirty six miles from Marietta, to which place I will now return ;o join the ex cursion. Not having it In his power to be present, as explained in his letter of invitation to the con vention, on account of personal oblig tions t® his company. General Phillips deputed several of his ablest assistants to take ctiarge of the excursion, and under the management of con tractor W. H. Simmons and General Superin tendent C. E. Adams, ably and courteously as sisted by Hon. L J. Allred, of Pickens county, the excursion was made entirely successful and pleasant. Starting out at 9 o’clock a. m.. with about two hundred delegates and promi nent citizens of the State, the train proceeded in a northeasterly direction, as near as your correspondent could judge, upon a road that must cover all points of the compass to avoid deep cuts and high mountains, in the direction of Canton, in the adjoining county of Cherokee. Little river was crowed about midway between Marietta and Canton, and the Etowah three miles north of the latter; but the charming valley of the Etowah was seen from the train and entered before reaching Canton, which beautiful town, the capital of Cherokee county, is perched upon a high range of hills looking down upon the Etowah winding among the hills, and lined with green crops of c m and cotton. The fer tility of this valley is not surpassed if equaled by any iands in the State, and the crowded corn fields seemed literally burdened with the grain. A large crowd of citizens greeted the arrival of the train at Canton and called loudly for "Hardeman,” who. as President of the State Agricultural Society and also the Demo cratic Congressional nominee for the State at large, was an object of special interest to the people along the line. Col. Hardeman respond ed warmly in remarks upon the prosperity of the State, but made no ailusiou to politics,that I could hear from a distant car. In the Etowah valley, a few miles above Canton, while the train was passing through a rich forest of waving green corn. CoL Allred, of Pickens county, who tourteously stationed himself near and pointed out to many the most attractive features of the section, an nounetd that "this is the field where Joe B-own was binding wheat when notified of his first nomination as Governor of Georgia." Every head immediately went o it at a window or rushed to the platforms, and Senator Brown’s corn field became an object of deep Interest, while a perfect flood of questions poured in upon those charged with the im portant duty of gratifying the curiosity of the excursionists. But this was not atl—fairly out of the field and in a narrow valley the train came to a stand on a high embankment and hard by a very small stream on the left, which wound away among the hills and poured its gurgling red waters into the Etowah. "This is where Joe Brown had hL mill—there are some of the old timbers and here some remains of the dam, while the train stands above the pier head. Here he came before day, when a youth, to grind seven or e’ght bushe sof corn with the small head of water which the scant stream collected during the night.” The rea son for grinding before day was explained as eoonomic, water being heavier during the night, and the utilizing of it before the daylight evaporation set in. So it will be seen that in the estimatiion of his admirers, at least, our ex-Governor and United States Senator was a philosophic farmer and ecccomist at an early age. As the Senator had returned to bis home in Atlanta, he should have been present to en joy the interest manifes'ed by his friends in the scenes of his early manhood. The resi dence of his brother, Judge James R. Brown, was pointed out in the same sweet val ley, and that of his brother-in-law, Mr. Lay, whose name was given to the beautiful spring of limpid, eool water, where lunch was served for the excursion. This sprirg is thirty-three miles from Mari etta, in a splendid grove of royal old oaks, and three miles from Ball Hill, the present termi nu cf the railroad. Superintendent Adams had special charge of the preparations for lunch, and. aided by Colonel Simmons as mas ter of ceremonies, the duties wt-re performed with a skill that mast give entire satisfaction to General Phillies. After lunch, watermelons and cigars, the excursion proceeded to Ball Hill—so called from the annual assembling of tbe Indians upon the spot for a game of hali but I have no space for history. On the return trip the excursion halted at Woodstock, and curiously inspected and commented upon the famous barn and stock farm purchased by R B. Bullock while Governor of Georgia, which were seized by the State authorities and re turned to the Treasury after his inglorious flight. The barn is perhaps the largest in the State, and was by far the most costly, tut now it is rapidly going to decay. Here Jnr. Bullock was preparing a princely estate for his ease and eojoyment after his arduous labors as pa riot and statesman (f) in the service of his country. But the course of politics never did ran smooth, and fickle dame fortune gave him the mitten in the zenith of prosperity and ain bition. With many a joke and jeer, the excur sionists turned their backs upon "Bullock’s r olly.” re-entered the cars for Marietta, and a few hours later dispersed for their homes. And now a last word for the North Georgia Road and the grandly beautiful country it is designed efficiently to serve. Tnere are no great through freights or travel to expect, and hence the difficulty enoountered in the effort to Interest capital—but Eastern Americadoes not afford a more lovely and inviting prospect for home and happiness than the green hills and valleys of this beautiful section The Etowah valley, so famous for fertility and beauty south from Canton, increases its charms northward as it grows narrower in general, but spreads out into a broad "savanna” in the county of Dawson. In the county of Pickens it passes along the foot f the moun tains, forming the beautitul plain upon which is situated the town of Jasper, between Sharp and Longswamp Mountains, the highest peak of which is called Grassy Knob This peak is 8,890 feet above the sea level and 2,1:16 fee* higher than tbe turret on the capitol in Atlanta, from which it is distant only fifty miles on an air-line. At the foot of these mountains, and cropping out along the streams for twelve ixiies or more, is one of the finest veins of pure white, flesh-colored and variegsted marble in America, now about to be rendered accessible by the North Georgia Railroad; while in the same neighborhood are iron mines, once work ed, with better ore lying about on the surface, I am informed, than that taken from the great paying mines of Pennsylvania. Other minerals are also found throughout the region, and it is confidently believed by intelligent men that, once open to transportation, tbis mountain dis trict of Geor-ia w >ll rapidly become the busi est, most interesting and profitable section o t the State. L. C. B. Trouble Between a North Carolina and a Georgia Company. Dispatch to Industrial South. A Georgia company Is buildiDg a railroad from Marietta, Ga., to Murphy, N. C. The latter place Is a few miles from Ducktown, which is to be the terminus of the Western North Carolina Railroad. The line of this road from Asheville to Ducktown has been surveyed an located, and runs through a ravine between two mountains called Mar ble Gap. An examination shows that the mountain on each side of the gap is pure marble. The location of the road runs along this gap for over a mile. The marble is very valuable, and the Western North Carolina Railroad Company confidently expect to realize enough money from this source to pav for building the road from Asheville to Duck town, which will cost $5,000,000. The road Is now running to Pigeon river, in Haywood county, and a force of one thousand con victs are steadily working toward Duck town. The Marietta and Georgia Company is building to Murphy and is trying to get possession of Marble Gap, because it is their best route and because of the value of the marble. A few days ago this company, with one hundred hands, took forcible possession of the route surveyed and located through Mar ble Gap for the Western North Caro lina Railroad, and ie constructing its own road-bed. The legal adviser of the Western North Carolina Company has gone to the scene of action for the purpose of preventing this Inter-State larceny. If legal proceedings should not avail Immediately to dlspossees the trespassers, Governor Jar vis will be asked to send a sufficient number of State troops to drive the Invaders back into Georgia. It is possible that there may be a cooflic between the two Statee. The Georgia company does not appear to have any legal grounds for its acting, but it is said it has taken this course in order to com pel the Western North Carolina Company to grant it connections and freight privileges and other railroad accommodations. 46 Popular Drawing* Have taken place under the management of the Commonwealth Distribution Company.
