Senator Hampton Thinks the Republi can Have Not Broken It. H* THINKS TMK PROTECTION SENTIMENT IAJ MASK HO HEADWAY THERE?AND THAT TH* president's APPOINTMENTS have helped the DEMOCRATIC CAUSE. Southern democrats are. of course, watching with considerable interest the development of the policy of the administration toward ths south. They are satisfied that a very deter mined effort is being made to break up the solid south, but their anxiety has abated. A Senator or Representative from that direction cannot be found who will not, with much ap parent earnestness, express complete confi dence that not a southern state can be oarried by the republicans. A Stab reporter sought Senator Hampton to day to get his views of the situation, which is now of general interest. No man, perhaps, is better qualified than the senior Senator of South Carolina to speak for the south. THE PRESIDENT S POLIOT. "I do not think." he said in response to The Star man's questions, "that Mr. Harrison's pol icy is as yet sufficiently defined for one to form a definite opinion about it. The republicans always have made an effort to break into the south, and I have no doubt that at this time they are especially earnest. At present they are directing their attention chiefly to Virginia, whare they will certainly be snowed under. They have no chance of carrying Virginia this fall, nor can thev hope for better success in other of the southern states. "They are trying to win bv introducing the economic question in the south. But as long as the matter of local self-government demands J1?' attention our people cannot be divided on this issue. W hether a man is a protectionist or a tariff reformer the safety or wellfare of his home is paramount to the tariff. PROTECTION OR EEEE TRAD*. "Do you think," was asked, "that there is a growing protective sentiment in the south?" "No," the Senator replied, "I think the ten dency is more likely to be the other way, espe cially in the aining and manufac turing districts. The interests of the states of Virginia, Tennessee and Alabama particularly are advanced by low duties. Thev can produce iron and coal much cheaper than ' they can be produced in the east. The protec- i tion only assists the eastern manufacturers ' to keep up this rivalry. Without the protection the rivalry would be greatly lessened. The less protection the more capital j will go to develope the industries of the south. Seeing this I do not think our people will be 1 led off by this question. The efforts of I the republicans will be in Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and perhaps Alabama. I do not think they will meet with success in either. The exodus of negroes from North Carolina, if it keeps up. will hurt them there, but they could not carry the state any Harrison's appointments In the south have been of a character to strengthen us in the resistence of any at tempts made upon the southern states. I know it has been so in South Carolina and I presume it is the same elsewhere." THE EFFECT OF NEGRO EMIGRATION. "Would any injury result to tho south from an extension exodus?" "An inconvenience, but no injury. We would gladly see the colored people move elsewhere, and we would be willing to suffer any reduction of representation that might result rroin their departure. It would deprive us of j much of our labor, and make a little harder for the present generation, but it would be the sal vation of the future. I do not wish any harm to the negroes, bnt I would gladly sacrifice whatever votes we get in i the elective college or in Congress by reason j or them if they would go off to themselves or settle m New England. I would gladly vote to appropriate t&0,0'X>,000 for the purchase of Cuba or some other place for them to settle in. THE SOUTHERN QUESTION IS CONORE88. "M hat do you think the republicans will do with the 'southern question' in Congress thi? winter?" ? They can do nothing constitutionally. I think they will attempt to provide for federal supervisors and place the elec tions under federal control This would be unconstitutional and vicious. I do no* think thev can succeed in this, and I do not ?ee that there is anything else that they can do 1 here are republican Senators who would op pose any measures oppressive to the south, ihose who have investments there would od pose such a policy. THK EXTRA SESSION TALK. Senator Hampton expressed the opinion that there would be no extra session of Congress. One reason he thought sufficient to deter the President from calling an extra session was round in the elections to be held in November which would necessarily take some members from their seats. They could not do anything if any of these members were absent. The death of Mr. Laird, he thought, would tend to prevent a calL 8p?aking of the democratic policy, he said that they would stand together on the defen sive, and he presumed that in the House they would resist any attempt on the part of repub licans to unseat democrats merely to seat re publicans and strengthen their majority. THE NEW GUN SHOP. The Machinery In Place and Every thing Ready to Begin Work. The work on the new gun shop at the nary yard is now completed, the tools are in place and everything is about ready to start. Steam will probably be turned on in a couple of week* Home days will undoubtedlv be con sumed in getting the machinery limbered up and in good working order. This will greatly increase the capacity of the yard. Promotion! In the Army. CoL N. A. M. Dudley, first cavalry, Was yes terday placed on the retired list of the army on account of age. This will cause the follow ing promotions: Lieut CoL J. 8. Brisbin of the ninth cavalry, becomes colonel of the first cavalry; Maj. DavidS. Oordon of the second, becomes lieutenant colonol of the ninth cavjdry and Capt. Charles D. Viele ot the tenth, becomes major of the second cavalry Fir*t Lieut. Charles E. Nordstrom becomes captain or the tenth cavalry, and Hecond Lieut. Samuel D. Freeman becomes a first lieutenant of the same regiment. An Amendment to Citil Skrvick Rules.?

Why Newport Harbor is Vied for the Purpose. SHOULD PILOTS BE CSED Pol MEN-0F-WAB WHAT RATAL OFFICERS TBIXE OS TBB SUBJECT? THE ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES O* TBB FBESENT SYSTEM. The trial of Cspt. O'Kane, the commander of the new cruiser Boston, for having run hit ves sel on a rock in Newport harbor and thereby injuring it, has started a discussion among the New York daily papers as to the wisdom of the present naval regulations that provides for the J maneuvering of vessels in their trials in that harbor instead of taking them out into the un obstructed depths of the ocean. The ships are run at an extremely high rate of speed and turned and steered in all directions in order to get them to show their powers. This, some people believe, is a uselessly reck less mode of procedure, and jeopardizes the valuable property of the government to an al most criminal extent. NAVAL OFFICERS SATISFIED. A Stab reporter had a conversation today on this subject with Commodore Walker, at pres ent the acting secretary of the navy, in which I he denounced these claims or outcries as non sensical. I .?'"/Lh!1bar.u0r of Newport," he said, "is not studded with rockB, as they allege. It is as | clear and free as any harbor in the country, i and more so than a great majority. It is an | absolute necessity to conduct these trials in a j ,h"^or- *'ld we ?el!ct tliat of Newport because , it offers the best advantages and it near to the | location of most of the vessels that we wish to ; try. It would be impossible to conduct the tests in the open ocean, inasmuch as the meas | urmg of distances there is nothing but mere guess work. It is practically impossible to measure a mile out there, and for that reason our tests would be valueless. IN THE NEWPORT HABBOB we have measured a mile within an inch. The first two measurements varied but three fourths of an inch, and a third one was made to verify the others. That is practically per feet. Our object is to test the vessels under I the most favorable circumstances, a smooth sea and no wind. Then, with a knowledge of j what she can do with everything to help her it is j an easy matter to try her with unfavorable sur i roundmgs. We wantf first, however, to know j J?? extreme limit of a vessel's powers. I be ! Iieve that these criticisms have been inspired by the pilots, who hope to get up an agitation that will bring them the sympathy of the country." PILOTS FOR NAVAL VESSELS. This reference of the commodore's to the pilots is an interesting one, as it is the voice of an agitation that has been stirring the navy for eight years. Formerly a commander bringing , his ship into a harbor would hire a pilot with I hesitation, for there is always a risk of 1 shirting bars and unusual obstructions to free navigation that a local pilot only is able to fore see. When an officer has been out of the country on a cruise for several years his entry into a harbor of his own country is to some ex tent like going into new waters, and though he may have a perfect knowledge of the hurbor as it was in former days he is in some danger of running afoul of things of a more modern growth of which he knows nothing. But pilots are expensive, and the bills that used to be presented by captains for this service were sometimes so large as to send cold chills down the backs of the accounting officers of the ireasury. WHEN PILOTS MAT BB ENGAGED. When Commodore Walker entered upon his present duties as chief of the bureau of naviga tion in October, 1881, one of his first acts was to amend the naval regulations so that com manders could hire pilots only when it was | absolutely necessary, requiring them to sign a fWiticato on the bills to that effect. Of course tnis discouraged the custom and very fow offi cera after that ventured to indulge in this lux ury, for over their heads was always the Darno clesian sworn of the disallowance of their ac counts. Commodore Hoff's bills were once beld up for a payment to pilots in Norfolk liar bor, several hundred dollars in amount, and he waitiug for years for reimbursement. Ibe result is that a commander, rather than , sign a certificate of ignorance, with the possi bility of its being an expensive admission usually undertakes to run his vessel alone, and seldom, if ever, resorts to the expedient of hir ing a pilot. * DIVIDED OPINIONS. There is a divided sentiment in the nsvy in regard to this mutter. Officers of leisurely temperament prefer the old system, under which all responsibility for casualties in har bors was vested in the pilots, and which neces sitated little or no harbor knowledge. Studious officers with ambitious tendencies are glad of the opportunity to show their skill as naviga tors and argue in favor of the new custom. THE TWO BECENT ACCIDENTS, that to the Constellation near Norfork, under Capt. Harrington, and the one to the Boston, under Capt. O'Kane, at Newport, are signifi cant incidents in view of the condition of the regulations und have started a popular senti ment that may possiblv result in less stringent rules in regard to the line of pilots. Ab is stated elsewhere in The Stab todav ?.|,e general opinion at the Navy department is iiiut I C0lfft, inquiry oxonorates Capt. O'Kane from all blame by showing that his vessel ran on a sunken wreck instead of a rock, this ob struction not being on the harbor charts. THE ECLIPSE EXPEDITION It Will Sail about October 1, Probably on the Alliance. Capt. Phvthian, the superintendent of the naval observatory, said this morning that the preparations for the expedition to Africa to observe the total eclipse of the sun, which occurs in December next, are being actively pushed forward. The scientists are making their advance calculations, instruments are being purchased and regulated and everything is being done that can be at this time and dis tance. The meager appropriation given by Congress for this work (*5,000) necessitates very careful expenditures, and it will be impos sible to send the expedition to St. Paul de Loando, where the observations will take place, except on a government vessel. It was st first thought that the new cruiser Baltimore would be selected for this purpose, but it is now seen that she will not be ready for sea in time for the expedition, which will have to sail about October L One of the older vessels will prob ably be sent over with the scientists, possibly the Alliance, now at Norfolk.

Norfolk, Aug. 21?Delegate# to the republi can convention are beginning to show up, though it will not convene until tomorrow. Those here now are mostly the leaden, gather ing in advance to talk over matter* and formu late plans of procedure. Besides Gen. Ma hone and CoL Wm. Lamo, who is a resident of this plAce, there are here, ex-Gov. Wm. G. Cameron of Petersburg, 8. Brown Allen of Staunton, U. 8. District Attorney W. E. Craig, Judge M. B. Wood of Scott couuty, ex-State Senator E. W. Early of Albermarle and other lesser lights. More of tne prominent men arrived this morning and others, together with the majority of delegates, will arrive today and tonight. The majority of delegates from the eastern part of ttie state are colored. White ones predominate from the southwest and ?alley. It may be stated with certainty that OEN. MAHONE WILL BE NOMINATED BT ACCLA MATION if he will have it If he declines there will be general nominations, among them ex-Mavor Lamb, who is '.he most prominent and thought to be the choice of Mahone, Judge Wood, Frank 8. Blair of Wytherille and Henry Bowen of Tazewell. Gen. Blair was a late candidate for solicitor general and had very strong backing. Mr. Bowen is an ex-Congressman from the ninth district and is a contestant for the seat of Representative-elect John A. Buchanan. It is thought by some that Gen. Mahone will allow himself to be nominated and then decline in favor of Lamb. Others assert that he will do nothing of the kind as that would estrange other aspirants. The city republican convention last night elected fifteen straighout Mahone delegates to the convention. In Norfolk county yesterday afternoon the county and Portsmouth senatorial convention wan held and CoL Geo. A. Martin was nominated for the Senate and Supervisor E. D. Hollmau (colored) was nominated for the house of delegates. The republicacs of Williamsburg met Mon day night and selected an anti-Mahone delega tion. Speeches were made strongly opposing the present plan of party organization. There are a few scattering cases of the kind in other portions of the state, but not enough to affect the harmony of the convention. GOV. CAM EBON WILL NOT REMAIN nor attend the convention at all, nor will Gen. Groner of Norfolk take any part in it, and they both announce that the element known as "kickers" will not be represented at the con vention officially in any way. CoL Brady, lately appointed United States collector for the Petersburg district, will, it is U-iderstood at tend, advocate a pacific policy and oppose a revolt on the part of the disaffected. Gen James A. Walker of Wytheville. hereto fore a protection democrat, is spoken of for attorney general and it is said he is willing to accept a nomination, tie is the father-in-law of ex-United States Marshal J. R. Jordan, who was a delegate to the Richmond convention last week. If he should be selected for that place the chances of the straightout republican : candidates for governor or lieutenant governor from that section wili be wiped out. Everything points to a harmonioos meeting and whatever the result it will be indorsed by the convention. LONDON GOSSIP. A Wail of Despair from the Welsh Clergy?The World's Exposition. London, Aug. 21.?The abandonment by the government of the tithes recovery bill is fol lowed by a wail of despair from the clergy in Wales, who have been tor years in a condition bordering upon destitution, owing to their inability to enforce the payment of their tithes. The government had given them the most solemn pledges that the bill should be pushed through, and now that they hud themselves abandoned and deceived they are in despair. Several of the clergy in the smaller Welsh towns have already given up their churches and accepted positions in various secular call ings, and the movement'ean not fail to become general siuce the failure of the tithes bill takes away their last hope of support within the church. As by far the larger proportion or the population are dissenters, little sympathy is wasted on these clergy, who are regarded as siuecurista foisted upon the people who de test them. It is confidently predicted that if the present coudition or things is permitted to lust for a single year there will not be a clergy man of the church of England in all Wales, ttud disestablishment, when it comes, will only be a mutter of torm. THE PROPOSED world's EXPOSITIOH in commemoration of the four hundredth an niversary of the discovery of America is al ready attracting considerable attention on the part of the English press and that of the con tinent.

Englishmen are becoming quite as sensitive as Americans on the subject of pauper emigra tion to these shores. Workmen complain of thu competition of the offscourings of the continent, which is keeping their wages down to the starvation point. They are loud in their demand for a similar law to that passed by the American Congress a few years ago. A BAD WRECK. L Passenger Train Crashes Into ? Freight Train.
