RECORD IN REAL ESTATE.
Another Week of Healthy Activity. The real estate market keeps on in the even teuor of its way, without any ■ particular change, and little can be said la regard to it different from what has already been said. The demand for good residence and basin* property continues without diminution. The property on St. Anthony hill takes the lead in respect to residence sites, and probably always will, especially as there Is now ' a probability of having wtter up there within a reasonable length of time. The street car service, it is ■well under stood, will be extended wherever it is deemed desirable or necessary, bo that the distance will not be so much of an objection as it has been in th ■ past. Dayton's Btuffis also look ing up as residence property. Of course, the heavy business houses are coing in on lower Third, Fourth, ;Sibley and other street, in that vicinity. The foundations are going in very rapidly for the immense new bloc-v of Merriam it Wilder, on the corner of Fifth and Sibley streets. This, when completed, will be one of the largest blocks in the city, and will occupy a very convenient location for business purposes. Work has been commenced in good earnest on the Northern Pa cific building at the foot of Fourth street, and a large gang of workmen are con stantly at work upon it, hurrying it forward as rapidly as possible. This is as solid a piece of masonry as there is in this solid city. The foundations were very expensive, and are as substantial as the pyramids. They are not second to even the Gtlflllan block, and that is saying a good deal. The work of ex cavating for the First National bank block, on the corner of Jackson and Fourth streets, is still progressing. It was a good deal of an undertaking to attempt to find a foundation there for it will fee necessary to go very low. The workmen keep at it though and are making very good progress. The foundations for .''ller's block, on the corner of Seventh and K. Bert streets are nearly all in. This block will have over 100 feet front on Seventh street by 100 feet in depth, and will occupy a very com manding position on that busy thoroughfare. Mr. Herman Greve is preparing for the erection of his block on Fourth street between Jackson and Sibley streets. This block will have an ornamental iron front which it is claimed will be the handsomest in the city. All the blocks on lower Seventh street that hive been mentioned heretofore are progressing rapidly, and will soon be completed and occupied. The archi tects and real estate men are all fully occupied, the former in preparing plans and specifications for buildings to be erected and the latter in disposing of real i state. In both lines every thing is full of activity and bustle, and all in dications point to an unusually active *um mer's business. Mr. 11. S. Fairchild reports the following transactions which have not yet gone on the record : C. L. Tracy, a tract in McLean's reserva tion, 138x262, $450.

Boston, May 5. —The Herald cable dispatch from London says if Parnell and his colleagues adhere to the tacit agreements unquestionably made, the government may be considered to have now a great victory. O'Kelly, Dillon and Parnell deny having made terms with the government. The fact is one of the trio wrote Hualey from Kilmainham, saying, in a guarded way, what the land league members would do if let out, in brief, making certain promises on certain conditions. This was made still clearer ' by ver bal promises given Healey by Parnell in Paris two weeks ago, and the re lease of Parnell on parole was for the purpose of giving an opportunity to come to terms. He.ily Ins beea the pacificator throughout. The plan wh.s perfected iv Paris betweeu Healy and Parnell, the former reporting to members of the cabinet the terms of the land league. The members at liberty are disposed to siiek to the letter of the agreement and give as little a- p-issittle; hence the assurance that Parnell will place no impediment in the way of the new arrangement implicating the design of continuing operations. The whole league's attitude is hostile as far as the pledges permit. Gladstone's parliament must dissolve, and will fall between the whig* and radicals. The latter will demand measures which the former will nut concede. Either way he moves he will lose enough of his followers to put an end to his ministry. Northcote thinks before the new policy has been practiced many months it will fail as completely as the other one. No audacity or change will save the liberal government. Siiaw reiterat-d to-night his belief that no dissolution will occur. He says the opposi tion has no leader worthy of the name, there fore Gladstone will be able to tide over the great crisis, not on account of his own ability, but because of the weakutss of his force. Paruell says the rent mauifebtowillbe with drawn, as it is practicably inoperative. As to other action, he says., he cannpt outline a di. finite policy uati he knows to what extent tlir great reform would reach. He did not at present see any reason for a noteworthy change of frent, and he is more and more dissatified with Lord Frederick Ctvandish's appointment. John Bright admitUd that Cavendish was a colorless man to a certain extent. He was appointed partly for that reason. The task of outlining the Irish policy would chiefly fall to Lord Spencer. He will be able to guide Cavendish* between whom and himself there already is the utmost sympathy. The govern ment offered the Irirh people the utmost con cessions, and had every reason to hope that they will be accepted. Forster will say nothing beyond the fact that he declined to accept the slightest re sponsibility for thechange. He feared there suit, but hoped for tue sake of his late col leagues th;it it might succeed. Time alone will determine which plan was best. Healy says Smith's bill for, establishing peasant proprietary was indefinitely postponed not for the pretended reason of a grave crisis, but because Smith was afraid the government would trump his trick by hearing his plan, rejecting it and adopting a similar one of its own manufacture. A Scandalous Sensation. , Dallas, Tex., May 6— A scandalous sensation has ju.=t been revealed. H. A. Moore, editor of the In dependent, at BerlD, Texas, lives in Ga'.veston.

Louisville, Ky., May 6.— Severe storms and heavy rains caused a postponement of the matinee at the Jockey club grounds to-day, it being put o!I until Thursday next, when the stabling, grand stand and grounds will be ready for the great meeting, commencing the following Tuei-day, May 16f The stables of Akers, George Lakes and Jacobs from Texas arrived yesterday. The Dwyers have returned from Lexington and report ihe quality of the two 71 hundred odd horses quartered at the track as superior in class to those to come. There are two tracks at the Louisville Jockey club and the character of the soil renders training a matter of certainty during the entire sesson, without a chance of b iug prev< nted by the weather, while even the outside is in capital order, and all horses are doing regular work. At least 400 horses will bj here, making all possible allowance for the wetdiug out process going at th.- Lexing ton meeting. The steeple chase continues to excite the most lively interest. Not only in Kentucky but in Onio and Indiana excursions for thefe special days aro being made up, while special cars are being chartered for those desirous of being very exclusive. A perf-ct army of workmen have been busy on the grounds and improvements. From a dis tance the ground and common stands are quite imposing. lt is no secret that many think that some dark horse will win the Derby. Never in the history of this classic event has there been so mush room for speculation. The lot at Lexington have failed to give any indication as to tbe cracks of that section, while large numbers, already at Louisville in training, have demonstrated a quality far superior than anything that has been shown this spring. The eleven days' meeting, embracing fifty four races, with $-25,000 added money, will be the grandest racing carnival known in any country. The press generally is much pleased with the accommodations made for their conveni ence. Ihe view from the towers is lovely, and many contemplate viewing the races from this lofty point.

"UNCLE TOM'S CABIN." How It Came to be Writteit. Two miles distant from this village, over among a g roup of hills through which used to -wind the celebrated Crab Orchard pike of half a century ago, stands a fine old red-brick mansion fac ing south and commanding a view of miles upon miles of wave-like hills and valleys. Fifty years ago it was the plan tation of Gen. Thomas Kennedy, a Vir ginian, who fought at King's mountain with Marion and came to Kentucky about 1780 to wrest the garden of the central portion of the State from the In dians. The old red-brick house and the ground all about it have lately become famous as being the original scene in Mrs. Stowe's novel of "Uncle Tom's Cabin." Gen. Kennedy owned 7,000 acres of land, 150 slaves, and was en ormously wealthy for those days. He was a man of wonderful character and determination, a Black Douglass in the Garrard hills. He was a tall, athletic and hale man, with the erect carriage of an Indian and the mien of a, commander. He was, in the main, a man of fair im pulse and royal generosity when calm ; but, when angered, he was insatiably cruel to his slaves. Gen. Kennedy died in 1836, and left the bulk of his prop erty to his son Thomas, then about 120 years old. In three years the young man had run through more than a great fortune, and was dead at the very outset of his career. Among the slaves left in his estates was an intelligent, high-strung octoroon boy, named Lewis Clarke, who had been granted comparative freedom, in being allowed to travel about with an open pass, trading, weaving and occupying himself as he pleased, paying his master -a certain sum every month. When the estate came to be settled, it was discov ered that some of the slaves must be sold, and an execution was issued against Lewis among the others. The rumor got out — and at that day the ru mor was a dreadful one among slaves — that they were to be " sold down South." On the first night of the Sep tember court in 1841, Lewis Clarko mounted his pony and struck for liberty. He rode away and over the hiiis to Ohio and to Canada. Then he went to Cambridge, Mass., lived for seven years with A. H. Safford, a brother-in-law of Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe. Mrs. Stowe visited her relatives every sum mer, and took a deep interest in Lewis Clarke, his experience and his narrative of incidents, pathetic, humorous and terrible, of slave life, and the horrors which the system made possible, and which were, in localities, frequent from brutal and irresponsible masters. From Lewis Clarke's own lips I gath ered the story of how Mrs. Stowe came to write "Uncle Tom's Cabin." Dr. Bailey, who published the Philanthro pist in Cincinnati, had been persuaded to move to Washington city about 1848 or 1850, where he established an eman cipationist organ, the National Era. He thought if he could get some woman of literary reputation and ability to write a series of articles for his paper every week on the subject of slavery and its violation of the finest senti ments, that it wonld revive public^ in terest and carry his paper to people it had never reached. before. The names of Mrs. Lydia M. Child and others were proposed, but not accepted. Lewis Tappan, who was one of the counselors, finally said he knew of one woman who could do the work successfully, that she was poor and must be paid for it, but that she would succeed. He then men tioned Mrs. Stowe, and advised Dr. Bailey to write to her, and, by way of earnest, inclose hey a draft for §100. The letter was written and the draft sent. The next week there appeared in the columns of the National Era, not the first of a series of articles on shivery, but the first chapters of a story called " Uncle Tom's Cabin." The circulation of the National Era increased at once, and soon became very large. Mrs. Stowe was poor and earning her money so laboriously that, for fear the great novel would be cut short, she was sent an additional draft for §300. Then she copyrighted the story, which in b >ok form has made her a fortune, and be come more famous than any novel ever issued from a printing press. — Lowell (/iy.) Cor. Courier- Journal.
