It is with satisfaction that we often hear our "Dry Goods Bulletin' referred to as a trustworthy source of information. Our aim has always been to make it such, carefully - avoiding exaggerated or misleading state ments, saying in its columns only what we eouM act up to in the store, and at the same time keeping our customers well informed about everything new and fashionable, and duly " posted" is the bargains we are able from time to time to offer. I1C Silks are " our specialty." In the Housekeeping Goods Depart ment our stock is complete. A special lot of the very finest quality of Marseilles Quilts imported offered at half price. linen Sheet ing in various widths and grades, bought pre vious to the recent advance. Table linen, Napkins, Towels, Diapers, Ac, in full and regular assortment at low prices. Fine Blan kets specially cheap. Those coming for our Winter trade will be higher than those we i now offer. I The new and handsome styles of Dress Ginghams we are showing attracted con- siderable attention, and sold well last week. We advise ladies to come and see them soon before the assortment is broken. They are superior to anything of the kind hitherto produced. We have opened a fine line of Torchon aces, the prices of which will be found very low. . - , The entire balance of our stock of Lawns, Lattice Cloths and Dress Cambrics we have again marked down. We would probably get better prices next summer for them, but we don't believe in carrying over anything of this kind, so we make them cheap enough now to force the sale. Having almost closed out our extensive stock of Summer Prints, we have put in a new line. The styles are very choice, the colors fast, and the quality of cloth the very best. We shall maintain our high standard of excellence and our low rates of profit. Navy Blue Flannels are in great de mand, and we have them in single and dou ble width, plain and twilled, at various pri ces. We have also a line of Suiting Flannels in other colors at uncommonly low prices. J. N. ADAM & CO. Bathing Shoes. Patent Slippers. Josephine. Empress and Opera Kid Slipers.

We beg to thank those customers who have kindly waited for a size we eot sold out of. We have got on a few to fill orders, and are pushing the balance rapidly through the works. We offer a very elegant variety of Silk Handkerchiefs for Neckwear, and we mention the fact that what we sell are really worth wearing. There has been a great deal of trash in the market, which has hurt the trade somewhat, but such a quality as we of fer will prove satisfactory every time. This week we direct attention to our dis play of Towels. The principal feature in it will be the extraordinary value we shall give in a twenty-five cent Frmged Dnuu Towel. There is nothing to compare with it at the price anywhere. Besides this great bargain we shall give unsurpassed value in bleaohed and unbleached Damask, Hucka back, and Turkish Bath Towels, at various prices- There is also a lot of magnificent ex tra fine double Damask Towels, exceedingly elegant goods. We are keeping a watchful eye on every department and wherever we think it neces sary we unhesitatingly make further and still further redactions. Among the articles so treated we mention Lisle Thread Gloves, our prices on which will now be found to be out of all proportion to the value of the goods. Embroidered Ties, La dies' Fancy Hose and Parasols may be named as instances in other departments of the same uncompromising determination to close out. At the same time we are looking ahead, and making active preparations to open the Fall trade in such a manner as to maintain the position we have won, and in spite of all com petition still hold, in the Dry Goods business of New Haven.

The Democratic convention which met in the Grand Opera House yesterday was, like the recent fiepnblican convention, a thor oughly representative assembly. Most of the old war' horses were present, all were im pressed with the solemnity of the emergency, uncommon pride wag felt in that embodiment of pure Democracy, Senator Eaton, and much gratitude towards ex-Governor English, whose nomination it was universally acknowL edged offered the only hope of escape from the very "bad box" in which the Democrats of Connecticut had been placed by the nomi nation of Bigelow and BuLkeley. Senator Eaton's speech on taking the chair was of course the main feature of the pro ceedings preliminary to nominating the ticket. It was a speech which seemed to do both the speaker and his hearers good. The positive Senator seemed to have no doubt of the en tire truth of his remarks he never does have any and the audience acted as if they really believed in his infallibility. Some of his impressive predictions reminded us of a prediction made by him on the same stage in the early part of the war. It was just after a number of the Senator's political friends had been imprisoned in Fort Lafayette. He exhibited considerable sorrow over their in. carceration and more anger. Said he, in substance : A million of men of whom I am one have taken a solemn oath to level Fort Lafayette to the ground as soon as we have the power, and we shall have.it within three years ! This prediction will do to go with his prediction that the Democrats will carry Connecticut by 5,000 majority. The ticket nominated is a good one. It had to be. James E. English is a patriot. His war record is better than that of the ma jority of his party. When in Congress he zealously supported the war measures of the administration, voted for the abolition of slavery in the District of Columbia and the National Emancipation Act. He has been right on financial questions. Moreover, he is, as all our readers well know, publio spir ited, a good citizen, a good neighbor, a good friend in short, worthy any office which has been or may be given him. If a Democrat is to be elected Governor, the Republicans will be satisfied with Mr. English. Mr. Fond and the other . nominees on the ticket are men well qualified to fill the offices for which they are nominated. A POLITICAL CUKIOSITY, Of all the platforms ever concocted in this State by astute politicians d accepted by political conventions without a murmur of dissent, that adopted by the Democratic con vention yesterday takes the cake, to use the expressive though inelegant language of the street. In fact, it absorbs the entire bakery. It "reaffirms," "ratifies," and "pledges," of course. All Democratic platforms do that. And it declares that the Democrats of Connecticut intend to show their intense sympathy with Tilden by voting for Han cock and English. This is a very delicate way of exhibiting pity and respect for the Great Defrauded. It is, indeed, almost asthetio. It declares that "we hold the Republican party responsible for the sweeping and just law regarding color-blindness. " Every body who knows anything about the matter knows that nobody is more responsible for this law than George M. Woodruff, Railroad Commissioner and Democrat. He made the law what it is and got it passed. Even this not the ease the color-blind plank in the Democratic platform is behind time. The Republican press has espoused the cause of the unjustly treated railroad men, the Re publican State convention has declared that they must have justice, and the Republican party will see that they obtain it. As Colonel Bob says, "It won't do." But all that goes before is not "a circum stance" to this plank of the platform : "ab solved, That legislation tending to make our penal institutions self-supporting should be so framed as to prevent the sacrifice of the interests of the honest, industrious and non criminal classes." The Democratic party jn Connecticut must be hard up for campaign thunder to adopt such a resolution as this, besides being strangely forgetful. In the first place, it is pure demagogism. There is not the least reason to believe that convict labor in this State reduces the wages of labor ing men a farthing a day. Two years ago there was an outcry against convict labor. The commission appointed by Governor An drews to inquire into the matter held two public meetings in Hartford, especially to give opportunity for those who had been injured, or felt injured, to make complaint. These meetings were aavertisea in every paper cj any account in the State. Jiot solitary laboring man or representative of a laboring man, not a manufacturer or representative of a manufacturer brought a complaint before either of those meetings. The Commission sent out more than 2,000 circulars to labor ing men and manufacturers in different parts of the State asking for information to sustain the complaints of those who had demanded a commission. Answers were received from eleven persons, two of whom were of the class whose interest it is to foment discon tent among the workingmen, and of the oth er nine not one gave any facts. They were simply of the opinion that convict labor was injurious to honest industry. After thorough investigation the result of the Commission's labors were summed up in an able and ex haustive report by Hon. Lucius P. Doming, which report was endorsed by both the Dem- cratic and Republican members of the Com- ision. They were unable to discover that convict labor interfered, an appreciable de gree, with the wages of workingmen outside the prison walls. This result is all the more significant from the fact that among the members of the Commission were Jeremiah Tierney of Norwalk, then Secretary of the National Hatters' Association, and Edmund Tweedy of Danbury, the proprietor of the largest hat manufactory in the State. To further expose the character of this resolu faon,it need only be stated that the same con clusion reached by the Connecticut Commis sion lias been reached by similar eommis- os in Massachusetts, Ohio, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and other States. This matter may be regarded as settled until convicts' be come much more numerous than they are now,or are likely to be. ' .. : Aa a rather striking illustration of Ithe hon- esty of this resolution, it may be mentioned that Mr. Merrick A. Marcy, of Union, nom. inated to stand upon the platform of which it forms a plank until he is elected Treasurer of the State or defeated, was a member of the Commission which made the report above referred to, and that he was of the opinion that said report was not strong enough that the outcry against convict labor was not suffi ciently condemned. Moreover, Mr. Marcy has had for a number of years a contract in the State prison, employing sixty or eighty convicts, and has grumbled a great deal be cause he could not have more prisoners to Work for him. -: But we desist for the present, merely re marking that if Mr. Barnum (the showman) wants a real curiosity for the political depart ment of the new museum which he is to start in New York, the platform adopted by the Connecticut Democratic State Convention of 1880 will serve his purpose. EDITORIAL S0TES. i New Haven can't find any fault this year. Both parties have shown a proper apprecia tion of the voters of this city. An inscription on a Spanish tombstone read: "I was well, wanted to be better, took physic, and here I am." The moral of this is respectfully and appropriatey dedicat ed by the Albany Journal to thosa who de mand "a change. " Secretary Sherman has agreed to make his first speech in the campaign at Cincinnati on the 30th inst. This will be one of a Beries of speeches which he will make in Ohio. In his opening address he will present the rea sons, from a financial point of view, why the people of the country should not intrust their interests to the Democratic party. Mr. Morgan, of Drexel, Morgan & Co., New York, made a noble speech to the man who came to his banking house offering the certificates of the suffering Rockaway car penters at 90 cents on the dollar. Upon be ing told that the loss would fall upon the men he said : "No ; the house of Drexel, Mor gan & Co. can never do that. You go and tell your men that we will take one-half of all the certificates and pay them 100 cents on the dollar for them, provided you will assure us that no one will be paid a commission or percentage on their money." If the Demo crats had such a speech as that to point to in the record of English, "the poor man's friend," they would feel better. The need of some representative of small amounts of money to be trsnamitted through the mail is generally felt. The Boston Ad vertiser proposes a'simple and practical plan to meet this want. It suggests that the post- offices be provided with blank receipts in de nominations of ten and twenty-five cents, Jto be sold at eleven cents for the former and twenty-seven cents for the latter, somewhat in the following form : 10 CENTS The postoffice at has received ten cents, which is payable to the bearer at any postoffice in the United States. The stamp of the office would be used in the blank space. On the reverse side the words "Paid by the postoffice at" followed by the stamp, would cancel the receipt. Postmasters would be accountable for the blank receipts issued to them as for stamps ; and cancelled receipts wuld be accepted as cosh in the settlement or accounts. Those who have seen "The Tourists" have been much pleased with the encounter be tween the bully of the play and the sickly, sanctimonious person with whose rights he attempts to interfere. A similar scene was recently enacted on the cars, near Burling ton, Iowa. A blustering fellow sat in the same seat with a clergyman, and, after si era! attempts to drag him into conversation, seized him by the ear, saying: "See here, mister, yer got to answer this question." Turning partly around, without the least outward excitement, the clergyman remarked : "You are a stranger to me, and I do not wish to be annoyed by you. Will you please let go of my ear ?" "Not until I havef er mind to," insolently answered the fellow with a grin. ' 'Look here, my friend, I had much rather pray for you than to use force.but you must take your hands off," re marked the minister. "I must, eh !" Just then the minister planted his fist in the fel low's face and knocked him down. The pas sengers manifested their pleasure at the turn things had taken, while the scamp walked to the other end of the car, and during the re mainder o f the trip conducted himself in i manner that would have won the first prize for decorum in a well-regulated seminary. The Demooratio nominee for Vice PresiJ dent in his letter of acceptance says twenty years is long enough for any party to be in power, and the Democrats who want to get into power and stay in heartily agree with him. The New York Times points out that the Democrats were practically, if not literal ly, in power from 1829 to 1861, a period of 32 years, and at the end of President Buchan an's term, instead of gracefully yielding their long control of the Government into the hands of their successful opponents, they ob jected so strongly as to nearly destroy the Government, to say nothing of the thousands of lives and millions of treasure they sacri ficed in their efforts to retain their power. March . 1829. Andrew Jackson's term of office commenced. He was re-elected, and served in all eight years. Martin Van Buren was Jackson's successor, and served till the expiration of his term. In 1840, the Whigs elected General Harrison. He died one month after his inauguration. Vioe Presi dent Tyler became President, turned traitor to the party that elected him, and served the Democratic party faithfully for the remain der of the term. James K. Polk, Democrat, succeeded Tyler, and served a full term. Then came Gen. Taylor, a Whig, and he, too, died in office shortly after his inauguration. Vice President Fillmore followed in the foot steps of Tyler, turned traitor to the Whigs, and served the Democrats to the best of his ability. Franklin Pierce, Democrat, succeed ed Fillmore, and served his full term. Then came James Buchanan, who served one term. From 1829 up to this point, with the exception of two months, the Presi dential chair was occupied, to all intents and purposes, by a Democrat, and after an inter ruption of four years and one month of Re publican rule under ncoin tne democrats again had the Presidency in their hands Johnson having swung around in line with them after Lincoln's death. Since Jackson's first election to the close of President Hayes' Administration, the Democrats, (counting Trier, Fillmore, and Johnson Democrats,) will have occupieoTthe Presidential chair 36 years of the time, and the Republicans only 16. Evidently it makes a cuiterence wmcn party is in power whether 20 years is long enough or not. Dow It Feels To Draws. From the Philadelphia Times. When I (rave up all hope in the water I did not suffer one pang of remorse about my past life. I have always been told that when a man is drowning all his past life comes be fore him and he suffers horrors of conscience. It was not so with me. I thought of you, my dear father and mother, and of yon all at home, and what a sorrow the news of my death would be to you all, and then, strange to say, I thonght how people do die. I have always been told that death by drowning is the easiest death, and yet here I am, suffer ing agonies of pain, and I remember wishing if 1 am to be drowned let it be oone quickly. Then I thought, I am about to solve the problem about the future world, and I felt the same feeling of shyness and dread come over me that 1 felt so offm, ana never coula conquer, when I was outside a drawing-room door, and about to be ushered into the pres ence of a crowd of ladies and men.' I have been asked if I never thought 1 about the sharks which infest the place. I am thankful to say they never entered into my head. If had remembered them X feel sure 1 should have gone down like a stone. A DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM. AH OtlK TO A DYING MULS. Q mule, dost feel the dread spprosclrof death ?

Another Blast Against High Salaries for Puhlic Servants. To the Editor of the Journal and Coubieb : Our free schools had their origin in a con. viction in the public mind that education is the best security against riot, crime and pau perism, and the best preparation for success and usefulness. Fifty years ago there were few persons in this State unable to road and write, but the population has changed. While the schools were supported by the proprie tors, according to our be6t knowledge and belief no man teacher of a district school was paid above $G00 a year and lady teachers in proportion. Our schools were as well taught, as reaiily supplied with teachers and made as good scholars as they do now. The school houses were comfortable, respectable and convenient. The fixtures and appurtenances were simple and of moderate cost, as good as the homes of the people, and the cost of edu cation was from one hundred to two hundred per cent, less than the present cost of educa tion. When people make bills for them selves to pay they "use caution, prudence and economy, but when they make bills for others to pay they are less considerate. We cannot expect public servants to reduce their own pay, or consent to have it reduced, or suffer it to be reduced without stuoDorn resistance. If a manufacturer was paying his operatives wages that would bankrupt him and should propose to reduce their wages they w ould resist, bluster and perhaps go on a strike until thev found it useless, and then comply. It is patent to everybody that the taxpayers of New Haven are paying tneir puDiic ser vants much more than they can afford to pay (not onlv the school teachers but the mayor. street superintendent, assessors and others who hohi office under the government), and more than is necessary to bo paid, and that the service could be as well performed for a great deal less money, which would be a great relier to tne oppressea tax cavers. The health officer and secretary in sisted on having $1,000 each, but they had rather have $G00 than go out of office. It would be so with others if the trial was made. There are rich men who can pay al most any tax without inconvenience, but the maionty are not rich, and are greatly incon venienced and embarrassed by our present taxation, which is about thirty per cent, of all that can be realized from our taxable tate. How would those who hold office like to have thirty per cent, of their wages taken for public purposes . Though they could bet ter afford to than a large part of the taxpay ers. There is some difference between skin nine and being skinned. There are in our neighborhood three women too old to earn. They each own a small house in which they have a home. All that can be spared is rent ed to a small family, and if they could nave the rent it would make them comfortable, but the rent must pay taxes, and they suffer privation, sometimes relieved by tne neign bors. There are many such cases. Equity. How Railroads Eat Up Forests. From the Cincinnati Commercial. But few rjeoDle comparatively have any idea of the amount of timber used in the nnnstmction of a sinele railroad. We hear that our forests are rapidly disappearing, and we know that material for building ana luei causes the sacrifice of many leafy monarchs of the forest; yet only the initiated know that it yearly takes 200,000 acres of forests to supply cross-ties for the railroads of the United States. We interviewed a gentleman who has been in the business for ls years, and concluding that his observations and experience would be of interest, we give the substance of his talk. It takes 15,000,000 ties to supply the demand on our railroads, for which on an average the contractors get 35 cents apiece, making in the aggregate a5.250.000. In building a new road the contractors figure on 2700 ties to the mile, while it takes 300 ties to the mile to keep a constructed road in repair. Contractors, of course, buy pieces of timber land as near to the proposed line of road as possible, paying for the timber an average of about 820 per acre or giving the proprietor of the land 10 cents for every tie got out. The average of a good piece of timber land is 200 ties to the acre and 12 ties to the tree. The size of a cross-tie differs on different' roads, but the usual size demanded is eight feet six inches lying and eight inches face. White or bun oak is considered the best timber for the purpose, although cherry, maple, ash and oven locust have been used. The last named were first used on the Little Miami railroad, and after a time thrown aside as unfit for the Eurpose. Railroad men much prefer ties ewn out with an ax to those sawed in a mill, and many contend that the first named will considerably outlast the sawed ties. This theory is probably a mistaken fallacy, as sawed ties have been placed alongside of hewn ties, and remained sound twice as long. This business srives employment to an army of ohoppers, who are paid It) cents apiece for each tie. A continued practice makes the choppers expert in the use of the axe, and a single man has been known to get out 35 ties in a day; yet the average is only 10, while an expert will probably get out 20. During the war when ties sold at from 50 to 65 cents, ohoppers were paid 12T cents apiece. Although the contractor gets 36 cents apiece from the railroads for each tie, still there is a loss of from 5 to 7 eents on dockage and stealage. An inspector is sent by the company to inspect the ties. This is generally a clerk from some of the offices, who frequently inow but little as regard the strengtn or aurauiuiy ui wuiwi, - consequence, some or ine oeB ura arc docked and only bring 60 cents apieoe. The stealage is where the section men put in new ties which have not been inspected and received, and fail to report the use of the same to the road-master. Most all cross-tie , men also contract for bridge timbers and trestling, as well as telegraph-poles. For the , latter chestnut and cedar are mostly used. They bring about $1.75 apiece and are cut mostly in the Tamaraca swamps of Michigan and the forests of southern Kentucky and Tennessee. Large sums of money have been made by lucky contractors above decribed, . and each only adds to increased demands. Ohio has over 4,000,000 acres woodland, ytt the ever-increasing demand for railroad purposes alone, if supplied entirely from our forests, would leave us without a single stick to . mark the existence of our once dense forest. Christianity and Ingersolism. What Christianity Has Done for ths . World A Challenge to Liberalism. Hon. Thurlow Weed has addressed the fol iDg letter to the editor of the New York Her ald: , Men entertaining infidel opinions, for the last twenty or more years, and until the ap pearance of Kobert G. Ingersoll, have seldom obtruded themselves upon the public. There is nothing in the manner or matter of mod ern divines either to provoke or invite antag onism. Clergymen do not, as formerly, dwell and linger upon the dark features of theolo gy. Nothing is now heard of the fate of "in fants not a span long." The ministry of our day is a ministry of peace, charity, and good will. This generation Ienrne to love and serve rather than to dread and distrust our Creator and our Saviour. Whatever grounds existed formerly to tempt scoffers and revil ers, the religion of our time disarms and si lences unprejudiced criticism. Colonel Ingersoll, whom I do not know,has the reputation of being a gentleman of edu cation, with a well-stored mind and attractive personal manners, who speaks fluently and eloquently. A man thus gifted can do much good, but much more evil, according to the principles espoused and the line of conduct marked out for himself. Colonel Ingersoll, it seems, upon his entrance into active life, chose the left instead of the right pathway, and becomes a reviler of, instead of a believ er in, a religion which has been making the world wiser, better, and happier for almost nineteen centuries. Is it not painful to see men richly endowed perverting their gifts, misusing their talents in presumptuous revil ings and ribald jesting against a Creator and a Savior from whom every earthly bounty and blessing emanate ? No act of the Saviour's life and no word He ever uttered has been or can be construct ed or tortured into hostility to the welfare and happiness of every memberof the human family. Human laws are tounaea upon tne divine law. All that concerns our happiness here and our hopes of happiness hereafter is derived from the Scriptures. On the other hand, what has infidelity done for us ? Who profits by its teachings ? After depriving its followers of their belief in a future how does it compensate them ? What does it offer in exchange for a life of immortality ? If, for example, Colonel Ingersoll should be sum moned to the bedside of a dying friend or relative, what words of comfort or of hope uld he offer ? Of what service could he be to that stricken friend ? Would he aggravate the sufferings of one whose lost hours needed soothing by telling him there was nothing but the cold, dark grave awaitmg him ? This cruel theory is repelled not only by revelation but bv the laws of nature. Contrast the la bors of Voltaire and Paine with those of John Wesley. Can it be said with truth that the former two made any one happier or better ? Hundreds of thousands of the followers of John Wesley have lived and died and other hundreds of thousands survive, rejoicing in their conversion from a sinful to a Christian life. The memory of Wesley is everywhere cherished by the good and the pure, while Voltaire and Paine are only remembered for the evil rather than for the good they did. Infidels of all ages found their strongest ar guments against revealed religion upon what they regard as improbable. And yet we ore not called on to believe anything more in comprehensible than our own existence. We might with about the same degree of reason deny this fact as to refuse to believe in a fu ture existence. We know that we live in this world. Is it unreasonable to believe that we may live in another world ? If we are to be lieve nothing but what we understand, we should go through life incredulous and aim less. We are ready enough to believe on in formation the things that relate to this world. But' we are slow to believe in prophecy and revelation, though both are corroborated by observation, experience, and events. Infidel ity, claiming superiority in "reason" and common sense, asks us to believe that all of grandeur and sublimity, all of vastness and power, in the beautiful heavens and upon the bountiful earth comes by chance ; that every thing is self-created and self-existing, and that law, order, and harmony are accidents. Those who accept this theory would find its application to their business affairs anything but advantageous. Infidelity and commu nifn are kindred in character, and aim by dif ferent methods to undermine the sanctions and securities upon which the world's welfare and happiness rest. Infidelity strikes at re ligion, communism at property. One seeks to weaken our faith, and the other demands the savings of the industrious and frugal. Agrarianism (communism of a milder type) came to us some forty years ago from Eng land, with Fanny Wright and Robert Dale Owen as its apostles. This bad element has been reinforced by communism from France and Germany. All three are working out their destructive mission in a city where un happily they find co-operation and sympathy. To these birds of ill omen comes infidelity equally aggressive, with Kobert G. Ingersoll as its teacher. If it be said that, unlike the communistic leaders, Mr. Ingersoll is a ' 'gen tleman and a scholar" the danger is thereby intensified. The wonder iswhy a man of good character and associations should take pleasure in teaching whose practical effect is to make his hearers and readers worse in stead of better citizens. The strongest argu ment urged against Christianity, from the days of Voltaire and Paine, is that bad men make a profession of it ; that hypocrites are found in all our churches. This is true. But it is not equally true that everything intrin sically valuable gets debased. Frauds are practiced in business. The richest fabrics have their imitations. Gold and silver coins are debased and counterfeited. The evils, however, resulting from impositions of this nature were serious. The intelligence of our people and the penalties to which the offend ers are subjected afford adequate protection, and for one hypocrite who makes a false pro fession there are at least nine conscientious, devoted Christians. Another argument against religion is that our Saviour was an impostor and that as a corollary his teachings exert a baneful influence. And yet both the accusations are disproved by the experience of 2,000 years. If Jesus of Nazareth had been an impostor Mis name and everything connected with it would hardly have survived the second generation. There would then have been no occasion for the labors of Vol taire, Paine, or Ingersoll. Other and num erous false teachers have appeared and disap peared ; but time and truth have been attest ing the divinity of our Saviour. His apos tles and their successors, in obedience to in structions, have carried and are carrying glad tidings to the uttermost ends of the earth. As far and as fast as this gospel travels the world is civilized and its inhabitants benefit ed. Civilization and its beneficent institutions abound by the religion which our Saviour in structed his apostles to preach to the heath en. Geographical lines are not more dis. tinctly established than those which mark the progress of missionaries ; and, while religious light brightens the Christian world, the ravs dawn upon the darkest portions of the earth. What have the doctrines of Confucius, Mo hammed and other false teachers done for their followers but to hold them for centu ries in ignorance and barbarism f And now I invite Mr. Ingersoll or any of his followers to inform the public how and to what extent they have profited by his mission ary labors in this city, whatjjsalutary reforms he has inaugurated or even suggested, or in what manner and to what extent he has con tributed to the general welfare or happiness of his fellow-citizens. The Increase Accounted For. From the Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle. But when all is said and done, the East and West need not be unduly excited. The ex piation of Southern increase is a palpable one and we have already stated it. The people of this section, as a mass, are a virtuous race. They obey the spiritual mandate to in crease and multiply. They either have not learned the more than Eleusinian mysteries of the East or West, or they do not practice them. The Southern people have large fami lies and they are proud, of the many sons and dan enters that grow up around them. Thev know nothing of Mai thus or Kobert Dale Owen, or Bradlaugh or Mrs. Annie Besant. or if they have any such knowledge it is put away-with loathing horror, and disgust. Wealth and honor may bring luxury, shame and forbidden knowledge and practices, and may the day be a distant one and may the curse of such a situation never be accomplish ed upon us. As it is, we have, without emi gration and amid the ashes of desolr.tion, grown in numbers and confounded the snare and hope of those who hate us and seek our destruction and demoralization. The South has preserved the family relation intact , and in her astonishing increase let the North be hold, not the fraud of man, but the finger of God.
