If the Rev. C. S. Smith made the remarks attributed so him at the Me harry Dental college dedication Wednesday he made a very foolish speech, entirely inappropriate to the eccassien. The New United States. The Empire of Br^ziHias succumb* ed te the inevitable. The estab« lishment of a Republic on its ruins peacefully and without bloodshed narks, one of the most remarkable and significant revolutions of modern times. The Republican idea of govern ment is destined to root out every other form in the two Americas and eventually predominate in the old world. The new United' States of Brazil with favorable fortune will occupy in South America the commanding po sition of the great Repubhc in North America. Brazil’s peaceful liberation of its slaves and establishment of a Repub lic show that the country has wise statesmen directing its affairs and a liberal conservative populace. COLORED DENTIST. Opening of a New Dental College for Black Students. Nashville, Tenn., Nov. 20.—-The new Meharry Dental College for col ored peop'e, a branch of the Central Tennessee College was dedicated in South Nashville this afternoon with great ceremony. Dr. W. H. Morgan, President of University of Tennessee Dental school, delivered the opening ad dress. He was followed by ex President Hayes, who dweit upon the history of the negro race, and predicted for it a great future. Judge David M. Key, of Chatta nooga, who was Hayes' Postmaster General, spoke. Dr. J. C. Hartzell, Secretary of the Freedman’s Aid and Southern Educational Society of the Metho dist Episcopal Church (North), said in his address that he did not believe in race segregation, and that if the millions of negroes in this country did not assimilate into the body pol itic God would curse the land. He vigorously attacked the Appeal to Pharaoh,’’ and said the negroes could not be removed. In twenty years they would be entitled to the same school privileges as white children. He referred to what he termed the great kindness of the North in build, ing up schools for the South. Rev. C. S. Smith, ot the African Methodist Episcopal Sunday School Union, declared that he loved Africa better than America, and his highest ambition was to go to Africa, which was by right the negro’s, and there raise an army to keep out every Agio. Saxon. The building cost §7,000 and is the first colored dental school in the country. - • CmIm Sklpmmla, Ws have before us some interesting facts and figures which prove conclusive ly that the cotton crop of this county is sot up to its UBual standard as compared with former yean. The number of bale* shipped from this point from the opening of the season until Nov. 20th, amounted to 1,443, aa against 5,000 and over last year in the same period. It is interesting to note that only 326 Of these bales were shipped over the M. AC. Road, the remaining 1,117 having been shipped over the Huntsville & Nashville railway. Another curious fact in this connec tion remains for us to notice. At this datT last year, Brownsboro had shipped 600 bales. Only two single solitary bales have been shipped from that point up to date this mason. ^ HE BARNARDS NOT TO HANG. S entence of the Five Condemned Broth er* to be Commoted.

The warrants were issued by Justice of the Peace Tom Blumfield, and he says he is going to have the men arrested if it takes all the Blumiields and Hat fields in Lincolu county to capture them. The McCoys will not give the men up. for it is certain that they will be bu'chereil like Nathan A. Farmer, Edwin and Peter McCoy, the two Cains and Charles Lamokin were after the Blumiields caught them. This new move in the feud will reopen the war, and a succession of bloody tragedies may be expected. Chicago in Darkness.

Interview With a Spaniah Statesman Who Thinks the Brazil Revolution a Prelude to Others—Emilio Castelar Talks Freely ▲bout the Change and Predicts That the Sway of the Autocrat in Europe is Nearly Over—flow the Revolution In Brazil First Started. New York. Nov. 22.—A copyright dispatch from Paris to The Herald con tains the following: “I am not in the least surprised to know that Brazil has at last decided for a republic, ” said Emilio Castelar, the Spanish statesman, to me. “In fact, my only wonder is that she did not do so sooner. It is only a few weeks since I assured a prominent French statesman that the tendency in Brazil was irresistibly in that direc tion. “To one who has, as I have, studied the condition of tilings in South America it has long been apparent that the thinking classes there wero too deeply imbued with the spirit of republi canism to make any other form of gov ernment more than temporary. Dom Pedro has always tried to conceal this fact from Europe, and he had more or less succeeded. It is simply ridiculous to claim that the revolution in Brazil was due to the recent abolition of slavery, for the men who have had the most to do with overthrowing the empire are precisely the ones who brought about the liberation of the slaves, and in both cases they were simply acting in accordance with the enlightened ideas of the century. “As to the effect this revolution may have upon Portugal, while I do not feel like prophesying that it will lead to the establishment of a republic in that country, I am convinced^ it will have a direct and marked effect in liberalizing the policy of the Portuguese monarchy. The two nations are really but one, with the same language, customs and tendencies, and the action of Brazil can not but react upon Portugal. Besides, I have reason to kuow that many of the most influential and able Portuguese writers and orators, such men as Latino Coelho and Beossio Braza, are heart and soul in favor of a republic. “in Spain, I think, the immediate effect of this South American upheaval will be less marked. Were we under a conservative monarchy, unpopular with the masses, I should think differently, but the government of Spain is very liberal, and is of its own accord ap proaching a point where republicanism will assert itself as a 'matter of oourse by the universal consent of the people. There is no need of precipitating that movement, but all the countries of Eu rope may well tiud food for reflection in this almost unprecedented event Think of it. They awake in the morn ing and And that a nation almost as large as all of them put together has is the twinkling of an eye, and without violence, changed from empire to re public. “l he revolution is over, and the new order of things is well established be fore they were aware the older order was compromised or that a revolution was threatened. Curious, is it not? And they may at last open their eyes to the fact that mankind has entered upon an era of reasou, and are no longer to be driven against their fellows in murder ous her Js and slaughtered by thousands like unreasoning brutes to suit the caprice of some vain autocrat who boasts that God made him their master. “The sway of the autocrat on this old continent is nearly over. If there is any one thing I believe with all my heart it is that before fifty years Europe will be republican from end to end. I believe the change will be brought about without the horrors of war as eas ily as it has just been brought about iu Brazil. As naturally as a man lays aside one coat and puts on another, be cause he likes the other better. The peoples of Europe are growing wiser every year, and seeing better what are their real interests. • ‘They will one day say to their kings, queens, emperors and princes: ‘We are masters here after all; this country is ours; there is the door—go;’ and then kings, queens, emperois and princes will go, and it will be a beautiful sight You look incredulous uud think me a utopist, but what would you have thought had I told vou a week ago that to-day brazil would be a republic. As I said, I believe these great changes will be accomplished without war. Is or do I believe Europe is now threatened with war.”_ How It Started. New York. Nov. 22. —The Herald’s special correspondent in Brazil cables as follows from Rio Janeiro: “Two battalions stationed in this city were ordered f om Rio to distant pro vinces. The military officers, in a se cret meeting, resolved to resist. The government, on attempting to enforce the order, was abandoned by the garri son. The minister of the navy resisted arrest, and was shot. The ministi-y, deeming resistance useless, submitted, and the triumphant army proclaimed the federative repub lic, appointing a provisional govern ment which promises to respect Nation al obligations, the life, pro^ierty and rights of citizens.

Ottawa, Ont., Nov. a2.—The atten tion of the Dominion government has been called to the fact that American parties engaged in dredging out a dock opposite the town of Sandwich, on the Detroit river, are dumping the earth from the American side into Canadian channels. Sir John MacDonald, when spoken to on the subject, said that this was a step in the right direction, as, if the Americans went on loug enough they would cart the whole of the United States over to Canada, and that was the only wav annexation would ever be no. eomplished. "They must oome to ns, ’’ added Sir John, "and if they do not want to make one big tumble into our arms, we will take them by install ments, beginning at the Detroit river." M. M.
