A ProLbable RIevval of Perman Inilmra tirn to Amerlea. [fail Maili Gsrette.] There are at present again unques tionable slgns that a very large emigrat ing element Is smoldering in Germany stimaulated by political and economical embroilments which will break forth as soon as sufficient hope and Inducements offer themselves in transatlantic coun tries in the eyes of the discontented and desponding Germans. The gene ral political aspect and the deoline of German commerce and industry at the present period are, observes Consul Kruge, such that an emigration on a large scale must be the natural conse quence of the ruling state of affairs. Among other illustrations of the causes of a desire on the part of the Germans to leave their native land, Consul Krugý mentions the religious "Kulturkampf," which, he says, in its practical reslt brought home by degrees to the Roman Cathollo population in an irritating, harassing form. Between the priests on the one hand and the government on the other the lives of the Roman Catho lic peasantry are made one of "perfect torment;" and these people naturally desire to leave that country where, rightly or wrongly, they believe their religion attacked or en dangered. The relations between France and Germany also act power fully to promote emigration, and the huge expenses of maintaining the armn)y, heoiles a navy of considlerable size, contributlle to swell the emigration tendency of the country. Consul Kruge thinks that if the Anstrallan colonies care to have the largest piortilon of the coining German emigation, at no time have they had a better chance of cre ating an extensive InovemIent to their shores than at present. In the mean time, Dr. IEngcl, the Director of the Bu renu of Statisti.cs at Berlin, estimates the loss in capital of every German soul emigrated at 650 thalers (Prussian) or £97 10s. In lllustrating the loss to Ger many by emigration D)r. Engel points out likowise that the old and lufirm people do not emigrate. but that Ger many has given within 276 years consiel erall over 1,00O0,o00 of strong men to the United States of America alone, and that the Kingdom of Prussia has lost within the same time 500,0)00 soldiers. THlE 0'3HER WORLD. When a man is put into the grave and mankind lcave him, he hears the noise they makte in walkiug away. Then two angels come to the dead man black in color, bu- having blue eyes. The namo of one is Monkir anti cf the other Nakir. They cause thedead man to sit up In his grave, ani say to him: " What was your opinion about Mohammed ?" Then the person, if he be a Moslem, will say, "I believe in Mohammed." Then will he be struck with an iron hammer; and he will roar out so as to be heoard by all an imals, except men and genii. Then the ground will be ordered to close upon him and break his shidle; and turn his right side to left, and his left to his right. Also for the grave of each un believer, there are appointed ninety ser pents to bite him to the day of resurret - tion, any one of which being upon earth would blast it. The day of resurrection is preceded by the coming of A nt.ichrist. Antichristis blind of one e% e, and hag a great deal of hair falling abut his f- e; and he brings with him the resemblances of paradise and hell. But that which seems like paradise is in truth, hell tire; and that which he shall say is hell is, in fact, paradise. Me will come out of a road between Syria and Irak, and will move over the earth swiftly "like rain followed by wind." For such tribes as believe on him Anti christ will order the earth, and it will produce verdure; and in the evening their cattle will come to them with higher humps upon their backs than they went out with in the morning; and their udders will be full. But as for those tribes who do not believe in Anti christ their lands will be stricken with desolation, and they will be afflicted with drouth and famine. The order of chivalry which contains the greatest number of Jews is the Order of the Cross of Christ, of Por tugal. Plevna is Russian for tears. THE FALL EL:'TIONR.

T'i great question in New York is not whether the llputiblia~sn or the im) oui(.ratlCe tate ticket for mtnior offies shall win, hlut whether the Conkllng faction or its oppotents shall secure the ascendancy in the Ifepubifean Legislature, which has annevn chance of being chbsen by a small majority on joint ballet. There seenms to he a goodl deal of minundeistanding tela tive to this Conkiing Imbroglrin For example. I have jaOt readt a letter froum the New York ortrespondient of the Philladetlphtl Ledgler, in which It is-stated that the real antagonism to Conikling proceeds front tJOHN R5tSMAN. who, In fihting for the control of the next National Republlcan c(onve.tion, desires to have ConkJing beaten in New York and re tired from. the Senate, hoping thus to force him out of the line of presitldettial succession. This is a very pretty theory, and bears cer tain marks of plausibility. But it is, never theless, strietly untrue. Johnt Nherman mtay be laying pipes for the object ºbove referred to, but I happen to know that an intrigue for the defeat of Conkling is not one of his maneu vres, Just at present John le profotndly Il terested lit making up as strong a force as possible in the Ikenate for the suppornt of the Administration in general and of his own financial policy In particular. orinkling is one of the last men in that body whose on tagonismk John desires toe arouse. In fact, he Is the first man whose support Joibl would like to make sure of. Ho it do(s not( stantl to reason that lhe would sltect the present as an auspicous tline for a declaration of war a r'omlrentr upon iRoscoe. It iu true that strenuous efforts have been made by mem bers of the C(abinet to ltave Conkling's friends ousted from onflh' in Now York and war made upon hiet generally by the Adtninis tration.

Having devoted the above space tr a re view of thme situatinrU i New York, I nowdesire to obtain for a few moments the distingdlshed attention of the pmoof reader of the D~meo MA'r respecting a matter of personal import. I recent y wrote that "Nicolas Herkimer, with riii p-i-o-n-a-e-r-s at his back," had, on a cer tain memorable oeem.son, "given battle to a full thousald of Tories rind Indians, led by Ilrmndt and .fohnnRso."

The events of that day proved that their knowledge was limited to the simple arts of flghting and d(ying. Thefy did not, it would seem, possess even skill enough In the priwmer busi ness to toake any. Not knowing how to surrendler themselves, they seem to have been ulnable to comprehend the true meaning of anyblody else's slrrender and so, imbted with the primitive ldea that "o cne an enemy always ail ,n ery," or with thle other anli equally crude notiotn that " da d.nl Tory was the next best thing to a live Whig" --an one of the sfta.ch old patriots of fthe ibLvrolition once phrate l it they ince.,nit ineitly slow all who camer in thiir waiy.

The Italc, of Home speake in the following terms of the letter lately ad dressed by Count de Chambord to the Pope: "Bo meeh has been said recently o the _proeeedings of the different brcch Uthoief parties with the Holy ISee, that we have thought it necessary to obtain some e.eet infortnation on the aWbjeet. lardinal Ouibert and the Papal Nunelo in Paris had, after the 15th of May, adlocated and brought, about the triertpb of a policy favorable' to Marshal de MeoMahon. ertou ne Sgotiations took place, and it was agreed ! that the Catholice should endeavor to obtain the election of Conservative Deputies without regard to the party to which they mighL belong. lostruo tions in that sense were to be subse quently ootammnuieated to all the bieh ope of the clergy. The egiItimite~ did not look favorably on the *oloigs of the Archbishop of Ptlris, who appeared to be more devoted to the Marshal than to the party, and com lained to the Papal Nunclo, MgIt Meglia. The latter, between whom and gr. Guibept there is no greet sympa thy, sided with the malcontents. To prevent the divilsion assuming any great proportions, the Cardinal Arch bilephop left Immediately for Bomene where he a.pForeheanded the Baron Baude might migh turn the seale in favor of the Legitmisets. That step tlitated the partisans of Henry V. Evidently, the Uardinal was laborlin for the govern ment of Marshal de MaoMhon : there fore the Cardinal to leave him a clear field, summoned the Freneh ambsesa dore to the Holy 8ee back to Paris. Cardinal Outibert was successful, and, in oonsequence of his solloltatione the Vatican consented to invite the elergy to support tile candidates of the govern ment on condition that the latter should follow a line of conduct favorable to the Interests of the Holy iee. The Legittlists and the Monapartlsta suspected the reeults of Cardinal Go. bert's misestoa, and appealed to the Vat loan for direct support, but the Pope held firm and confined himself to preaching ooneord among the rival Con servative parties. The Bonapartiats then declared that they could not lose the opportunity of manifestin them selves and preparing for 8lee. That at titude of the Imperiallsts alarmed the Legitimists, who induced Count de Chambord to write to the Pope to re quest him to say a word in their favor if he did not wish to see their cause se riously oompromised. Plus IX. replied a few days back, to the letter of Counot de Chambord remarking to him that the only possible and useful course ia the present circumstances was to pre serve a complete understandin betwesa all partles friendly to the Vat the instlgation of ' sal not to de lare himself more explicitly than he has done. At the Vatican the triumph of the Bonapart lets is considered more probable than that of the Legitimists, TME DElMO(RAllTIC OE)UIIB I~N MAINI IKenneb.o Journal. The Democratic State Convention nominated yesterday as the Democratio candidate for Governor Joseph H. Wil liams, of Augusta. Mr. Williams the nominee, is a resident of this city, a man of respectability, education, wealth, and a lawyer by profession. In politiCs he has been Republican, Liberal Ite publican and Democrat. In 18i7 he was elected President of the Senate, and upon the resignation of Hannibal Ham lin as Governor, Mr. Williams became by virtue of his office Acting Governor of the State. The same year Lot M. Morrill was elected Governor by the iRpublicans, after which Mr. Williams gradually disappeared as a Republictn leader. In 1873 he was supported as the Liberal RIepublican candidate for Gov ernor, receiving, however, but 2100 votes. He has before this been mentioned as the Democratic candidate for Governor. Last, fall he voted for Samuel J. Tilden for Piresident, and this served to seotre him the nomination this year. -........ 404..-- MEEKNINII INtrgIMREP S6cAAL P0l3og;C.. TION. iN. Y. 7ribune.j Gen. Le Due. the Commissioner of Agricultural Affairs has for some time been engaged in the consideration of important matters affecting the sugar interests of the United States, He believes that there can be a sating of more than sixty millions of dollars a year to this country by the production of the sugar at home that is now imported from abroad. The Commi sioner is in correspondence with sugar planters and others in the South and Southwest, and has also received Infr matlon from the growers of sugar-beit. There is a general agreement among planters and others to the effect that. there can be a much heavier produe tiurn of sugar in this country than there is at present, and all who have commu nicated with the Commissioner on the subject avow their earnest anxiety tq give him all the benefitr, of their experf ence on this subject, and assist him in his efforts wherever they can.

Three of these counties, Clay, McDowell and Roane, are in the Third Congressional listrlct, and cast in the presidential election, 2039 votes. The other county, Webster, is in the Second Congressional District, but bor ders on the Third District, and has doubtless voted for Charleston, which will perhaps have amajority of 20.0 over both competitors,and will consequently be the permanent capital after 1885, un less the Legislature should recede from its action.
