will le observed that in tihe vareious tarllfs
sumlllittldl l'orIheprsnto ll( ,mulll , ch lophistry
is uitod to ctionvintt the country that as 111 per
cent, of the sugars tulported are of the low re
Ilining gratls, under No. 10 IiDutch standllard,
therefor' the revenue may be s('cllro( tlhe
morereadil y by Increasing the tariff somewhat
on theills graties, an111d doitreaslig it oil th11of4'
higher than No. 10. The real lTfet, of thisl
would be to drive such refintrs of the
North likte Ilav'rmioyor &l Etlor alnd Mat
thlesseln ,t Weltchers, etct., who work thlse
very low grladtt esugars, out of existlncl. As
nonle of our sugars maltl here, o-tln iby tlth
old process of open ktitle, graIde down as
low as No. it, lthe tonelit to accrue, to the
Soulisiana suHgar planter is not visible by any
sulchll change, and the ttffTtct woulllt hit' to Itmal.e'
I'nelit.s of al piower'lful organtization whose
Inter'sts are identical with ours. It is a
mistaike for the open kettle sugar planter of
this State to suippotse that there is any antag
onistu htw'ln thille ol' procss sugars and the
clarifelld sugars now being extensively ltladte.
The convict.on holds quilte generally now that,
an improvemnlnt in grades must be made nit
order to compete wil h the outslie world, and
at prices which rule In ordinary years, and
which we have a right to expect hereaftter,
the present oldt process cannot be maintained
with profit. Tthere is not a single ope(n-kittle
planter but who will confess that, unless
higher prics Ihan thiose obtained last year
can be secured hereafter, It Is unprofitable to
ctntinue the Inanfacture of sugar in this way.
How, then, this is to be secured is a most im
portant question for him, and nothing but
continued protection against foreign impor
tations can accomplish it. This In our day of
liberal ideas and sectional interests cau
not be expected, and thei only safety of the
sugar planter of Louisiana lies in the fact
that so much revenue is actually needed for
government purposes, and imported sugars
must, as heretofore, bear the bulk of the tax.
But the important part in the drama for him
to play is to see that in the levy of this tax
his interests are not neglected. It is conti
dently asserted by good authority that some
change is demanded, and will be insisted
upon. But to open the door for changes at
any time makes it uncertain where they will
stop, and if the evil we have Is supportable, it
is betty to endure it than to aggravate it in
the hereaftter by subjecting it to fresh irrita
tions. Louisiana open kettle sugars which
grade from No. 11 up to and including No. 13
must receive at least the same protection as
now, if no advance can be obtained. If with
a duty of $2 ~i per hundred weight,
as under the present tariff, the prices
cannot be kept up to a profitable figure, much
less can it be under the bill reported to Con
gress at the last session, known as the Rob
bins bill. This provides for a duty of only
$2 40 per cwt., a difference against us of forty
ope cests on every 100 pounda, being In fact a
rerluttlon in thn duty of nearly one-half a opnt c
per pound, or $5 loss on oevery hogehead made p
in Loultlana. 'l'he faIllay Iln thle 11ll s to In- c

The steamtner Clialumplin. of the Now York and
(CharlestoAn I, ne, was Punk almost istantly by
coIlliing with the British sailing shIfp Lady
(,ctavla. In the Atlantlti. a few houre' run from
Ilarnetgat light-house. The night was clear
alit starlit and the sea smooth. so that the
accidient which resullted In the lose of about
thirty lhuman Ibiinrgs and the ship aiul tanrgo,
wtis caused by thel grossest +irelesSnieS5,
pre*mlinably, oil the part of the ol)cires
of the (Champiion, ia shei wits a stileaml
ves:el, and cudihl, without lifliculty,
have avetidl. the cllisionll had a
proper watch been mnaintained. Evldleintly
there was no adullllate watch kent on elither
ship, lnd both were plowing at top-spqleil
through the water, trusting to lunk and
leaving the fate of IpatsHtngers andl crew to
the tender Iercles olf ellpy and thoughtless
subordtinate olll.ers, and possibly to tlihe
care of the Lmcn at the wheels, About :i
o'clock In the morning, when Capt.. Lock
wood of the Champion heard the cry of "Sall
aheadi!" he sprang from his bed, ran to the
pilot-house, stopped the steamer, and then
rang the backing hell. It was to) late, how
ever; the Lady Octavia was only about fifty
yards off, and the next instant she crashed
into the steamer, "staving In the whole bow
nearly to the foremast," and sinking her In
about three minutes. There was but little
time to make arrangements for saving
those on board, and hence the heavy
loss of life. ''he passengers sprang
front their comfortable beds, rushed on
deck, and sprang into, or were
drawn down into the water of the Atlantic.
This disaster is one which could have been
avoided by the exercise of the most ordinary
care, and It Is to be hoped that the investiga
tion now progressing in Philadelphia will be
sulficiently searching as to fix the blame
upon the culpable parties, who should be pun
ished to the full extent of the law.
The accident to the ocean steamship Ari
zona, of the Willias & Galon Eltriopean
Line, which occurred about toe same time off
the coast of Newfoundland, was, owing to the
ship being constructed with separate com
partments, not attended with loss of life. The
steamer, while under full headway, ran Into
an iceberg, staving in her bow half w y
through the first compartment, which filled
with water but (lid not disable the ship, as
she su-ceeded in getting safely into St.
Johns somewhat curtailed as t, her
fair proportions, but not .,erlously
damaged and with her cargo intact. The
Arizona is a new vessel, one of the tinest and
swiftest ocean steamers afloat, and her
strength is evident from the mannuer In which
she withstood the tremendous shook, which
Cruped in her sharp bow, bute her 14i all

The gifted young man with the lumpy fore
head anll the sprightly young woman who
has such spirits, must find in this season an
Inexhaustible fund of conversation. Further
more, the conversation may well be of a fine,
vigorous tone of anathema lnstead of the
inane drivel which is usually spilled by society
upon the subject of the weather. No one can
now say, with any approach to honesty, that
It Is a line day, or a delightful evening. The
youth who ventured such a statementas that,
no matter how feeble his intellect, would be
promptly smothered with scorn and con
tumely by his best friends. The young lady
who murmured assent would be shunned as
an Imbecile for whom not even the
elastic apology of conventional cackle
availed. The truth is that this weather
is too utterly beastly for any of the usual
amenities. It has reached a point at which
people who set up a single claim to respect
ability of intelligence or decency of feeling
will r, fuse to make a compromise with it.
Here in the middle of November, when by all
right we ought to be having cool (lays andl
chilly nights, when the cockroach shiuld
have gone into hibernation and the mosquito
have hunted his little hole-here, while we are
daily hearing of snow and ice, and frosty
mornings from every quarter-we swelter in
a heat as fierce as, and infinitely more dis
gusting than we experienced in August. The
days are close, murky, oppressive, the nights
are damp with perspiration. Men go
about mopping their brows, and with
their garments cll.ging to them. The horses
and mules pant, the mosquito is animated by
a tresh ferocity and perseverance, the sugar
