Menfelaus, is printed in full in another column, The Convention w as composed of earnest, practical men, who have at heart the interest! of the eomm onwcalth and are intent upon developing a new industry which will add largely to It Wealth and productive resources. The Cultivation of .lute in our Htate has passed the point of experiment. The adaptability of her soil and, climate, its production, and its value us a money producing crop, has been fully tested. The Convention organised itself into a permanent body for active work, with Geo. Lee, President of the A. and M. College, for its presiding officer, and an efficient executive commit tee. A reso lution was adopted to memorialize Con gress lo admit Jute seed and the mate rials used in the construction of Jute machinery, free of duty, If the opinion delivered by Judge Whnrt on in the Myers mandamus ease U correct, tin laws on our statute hook me to be coie 1 1 M to facilitate the voters iatheexpreti not' their will through the ballot bo: 'id not as instruments for the defeat of elections. The public will .'iwsit with patience the decision of the highest judicial tribunal on that im portant subject. Civil, service reform is a question that has come to stay. If we are not very much mistaken, the Democratic party, when it gets into power, w ill not rest con tented with the pretence of reform em bodied in the bill which recently passed. Elsewhere we have published a speech of Senator Jonas, of luiisiana, which is ns lull of argument and sound dnctrint M an egg u of meat. It is to the point. Head it. Tin: Civil Service Reform hill (so call ed) provides thai the Commission who are In raleel applicants for appoint incut , shall not be of the same party, it is pre sumed the President will appoint two Heiuhlicuns and one iVmoerat. A col ored Republican, J. H, Etaincy ot South Carolinin, is urged for appointment on the Commission by John H. Lynch, and others. not to interfere in any manner with elections for State and county officers, they might interfere indirectly i" some way. We admit that we shared that apprehension, and favored the separation. We are convinced that if the fear was well founded then, the motive does not now exist. Experience has shown that the present plan of holding an election annually is impolitic and works badly. It Is very costly. It costs money needleafliy, and time which is valuable to thi1 people. The danger df Interference by United Suit.es inspectors of Congressional elec tions can be easily obviated.

IT . 1 . managers. 1 lie l ulled mines onicuus will have uo.autlioiity for interfering in any way with the State or county elec tion. They will not have the temerity to usurp it. If need be, laws can be passed to restrain, and prevent tbeiii, for interfering with State officers in the con duct of Htete elections. The recent de cision of Judge Bond, in Mouth Carolina that United States inspectors have no right to obtrude upon registrars while. in the performance of that duty, is in point. An evil of the present plan of holding Congressional elections at different times from the others, in addition to its cost liness in monev and time, is the small vote which they elicit. The people are tired of constant elections, ami stay away from the polls. Look at the figures of the last and previous elections. They fur nish ample proof of the necessity of the change. Bo far as the federal election laws are concerned, they are odious and uncon stitutional. They ought, and we hope, will be repealed. But it must be borne in mind, that directly in the face of them, the Democratic party has held its own, with slight exceptions, in the choice of members of Congress. The seventh district with its targe colored majority of eight, thousand) and shingled all over with federal Inspectors, half of whom wercappolnted on the recommendation of the Republican candidate, gave the Den oeratic nominee more than live thous and majority. If these elections laws, then, do not serve to defeat the will of the people in the choice of Congressmen, in the election of whom they have a direct bearing, why are we to fear that they can be used in controlling theState, and county elections over which they can have no possible control'.' The people are weary of annual elec tions. They are in favor of holding Congressional and Htate, or county, elec tions, as the case may be, on the same day, and at the same time, hut separate ly and by different managers, It will devolve upon the Legislature when it meets to provide for the change. Experience has shown its necessitv. ei her our silver dollar is worth as much in the bullion market aa a dollar of gold, or until sonip international agreement has been effected for tbe remonetiaatiou of sil ver. Philadelphia American. Who in to decide what is the actual demand for circulation T If it be left to the bondholders who are interested in collecting the principle and interest of their debt exclusively in gold (as they hare no "right to do, but which they are doing through the favoritism of the treasury depsrtment) at a value enhanc ed in proportion as the circulating me dium is reduced by the demonetization of silver, they will promptly decide that the demand is more than supplied. If it is left to the people, engaged in the various industries of the country, who want an abundant, and at the same time, a sound circulating medium, they will decide that the coinage of silver must be continued, and that it should be placed on an equal footing with gold by pro viding that it shall be unlimited. So far from discontinuing the coinage of silver, Congress ought to pass a law Compelling the treasury department to pay silver out to all the creditors of the government, bond-holders, as well as the iv-:.

Senate in 1K78, passed resolutions declar ing that under the contract between the purchasers of the bonds and the govern ment they Werfi payable, principal and interest, in the silver dollar al 412J grains. P thi' American bold enough to say that the P. S. Senate falsified the con tract between the government and its creditors, and allinncd a deliberate lie ? The anxiety to put silver under the ban until an agreement can be effected with other nations to equalize the money value of the two metals, is a somewhat astonishing Bvejy atto rapt in, that direc tion has been a signal failure. It should be remembered that it is the prerogative of every government to coin its own money and fix the value thereof independent of other nations. The coinage, of silver is required by the Constitution, and then is no reason why the government should violate the intention of its f miners, and what was the established custom of the government until 1H7.' when its coinagi was surreptitiously abandoned in the interest of the money barons. So, also, the sudden anxiety to bring the silver dollar up to the value of the gold dollar is amazing. If there be need of equal icing the value of the two metals why not reduce the measurement of the gold dollar? To increase the quantity of metal in the silver dollar would be to add that amount whatever it might be, to the face of all the debts which the people and the government owe.

In the de-ire to aid this clftSS, the monopolists, it seemed not to have been remembered that the way lo revive our commerce is to remove the restrictions imposed upon it by a prohibitory tariff and to eneotir age our merchant marine by opening the I lilted .mates registry to every ship owned by an American BO matter where it is built. Hence, the platform: "Free ships and a living chance for American commerce.'' torv the existing tariff was forty-three and a half kt cent : the bill professing to r duce duties, proposed a rate of sixty per cent, upon glass and earthenware. This "infant industry'' was one of the younger daughters of the horse leech) but it had already learned the cry, "give, give." Likk the rest of the Commission which have been organized by tuthoritv of Congress to do the work of that body, the Tariff Commission has shown itself to be a nrst-class fraud.

So far from this being the case, Mr. Nimnio, of the bureau of statistics, finds that if the Tariff Commission's schedule were adopt ed and the importations continued to be the same as last vear, the increase in the revenue would be about four millions of dollars a year. This would not be the reform the country expects. Bills have been introduced into the Ohio legislature to regulate the fares on sleeping cars.

Both sugges tions have been verified. The scheme h as achieved the purpose of delay. The Commission was a one-sided affair. It was a Tariff reform body which acted on the idea, How Not to Do It. The protective principle was retained in its plan of a tariff; and it is a doubtful question whether it will reduce the revenue or not. But as if to dispel every doubt as to the motive of the Commis sion, the following letter has been brought to light. It was written pend ing the deliberations of the Commission by the representative of the Sugar inter ests. It was read in the Senate by Mr Beck, who is gallantly leading the fight in that body against the champions of the monopolists. The language of the letter shows its meaning, ana proves that while the Commission was ostensi bly prosecuting its investigations to produce a system that it would operate equitably Upon all the varied industries of the country, and showing favoritism to none, it was really working, and cor ruptly working, in the interest of the "protected" classes, "preparing combi nations," "providing the sinews of war," and the like. The advocates of the Commission scheme will not read this letter with its palpable intent, and sig nificant allusions, without ablush; and if they supported it from motives of public good, they will feci that they have been badly sold : Long Branch, Aug. 10, 1882.

LETTER FROM A DISTINGUISHED EX-MIS- PISSIPPIAN. Canon City, Col., Jan. 15th, 1883 Editors Clarion: I have received tlie first number of the new eight page edition of The Clarion, and am well pleased, alike with its typography and make-up.

While its condensed news and statistical columns remind me of the celebrated Niles Reg ister, so long the text-book and vade rnmim of all American statesmen When I was a Mississippi member of Congress, I was presented with a copy of Niles Register as one of my muniments of title to the office of Representative, and I found it a most excellent guide on political subjects. I doubt not the eight page Clarion will prove a worthy rep resentative oi its departed predecessor Respectfully, John D. Freeman. As the good old deacon said about his Hinging: "He knew two tunes, one was Old Hundred, and the other wasn't." S there are two parties, one eratic ami thr ntn-r iVnf. In the IJ. S.
