more favorable thai that of the week
btfire, but the melting snows and
thnw have made the roads imputable
in many parts of the country; heavy
bods in various directions have added
to the difllculty, which will probably
account fur a great proportion of ihe

Memphis is interested, we find that as
against the corresponding tiino last

The New York Marine Journal, an
der the bead of "The Memphis Mis
take." o:cupien two and a half of its
broad and handso-ne columns in reply
ing to a late article in the Memphis
Api-xal in which we said: "When an
American cit'een remembers that his
country has not shipping to carry from
its poiti the produce of its own acres,
be ought to blush for shame." This is
pronounced to be warm and generous
in sentiment, but cold and selfish in
fact a fact the Journal rays is not due
tj American ship-builJers and ship
owners. It is due to antiquated
America,! laws and the modern tariff,
and to the merchants and builders in
pioportion ai they havs supported
those obstacles to the success of Amer
ican ocean navigation. The JoiirnaA
says it is due to the free carrying poll
cy of our f ithers. That assertion is
evidently a mistake, for a quarter tf a
century of a stiff war protective policy
hai only swvedto extinguish and an
nihilate any successful American
ocean carrying trade. " Remove the
ciuss and the effect ceases," is an
axiom. If fie causa in this case was
too muoh freedom, its removal and
the substitution of protection should
have restored 'shipping prosperity,
not killed it. But the Journal as
serts that to expect improvement
by reducing
and yot with
duties is a fallacy,
the dut'es, American
ships almost disappear from the open
sea. Reducing the tariff increases the
trade of foreign ships, says our New
York contemporary, yet diwn has
gone American ship more and more
as our tariff has been hoisted higher
and higher. Facts are very unkind t)
our courteous crlticiser. The Appeal
suggstt that if our people had the
liberty to buy ships where they can
be bought cheapest, and sail them
under their country's flag, the pluck,
energy, skill and enterprise of
the Americans would, as it did
in firmer days, carry off the
palm when their ships cast no more
than is pa'd by other nations. The
Journal has no such trust In its coun
trymen's ability, spite of what was
done years ago. It relies on Urifls.pro
tectioa, duties, taxes and such kind of
gear. To rely on tax-eating, not on
the prollts of unobstructed trade, is
going out to sea on bladders with wind
for ballast. But for our people to be free
to buy their ships wherever they find
th jm inobt suitable would be, says our
marina contemporary, "to vote in Con
gress that henceforth we are to build
no more ships," in other words,
no one would bny American
tdi'pj nnlosi the law compelled
them. This looks like 'giving
the thing away" and "throwing up
the sponge," for if Americana will not
buy American ships if they can get
ships anywhere else, how are foreign
ers likely to employ American ships
if they cau get ship anywhere else,
or our own people either. The Jour
nal gives a table which shows that at
San Frauchco for six months last
season the monthly average of ships
receiving grain cargoes was 45 per
cent, of foreign and 7.8 per cent.
American, although, the Journal de
clares: "All this tima our superior
ships in waiting were vainly offering
at rat 'from 15 to 20 par cent, below
those freely piid t standard British
ships. ;if such is the pridelection for
foroiga-built ships, evidently the true
policy to regain our ocean-carry-i)g
trade is to bny iorein-built
ship, put the Amsricta fltg upoa,
them and flourish as we did in former
days. Our contemporary acknowl
edge that American shipping is in
a bad way, but balieves that "by wine
measures and good government the
American Ihg may ba restored t) the
sea." Spito of "Tho Memphis Mis'
ttke," we think so, ton. But what
does tha ilitrine Journal call wise
mpaaures aad giod aovemment?
ilre it is: "Cosgress should have
followed England in the subsidiary
policy.' To ttx shipping and ham
per iu building , by laws ma la when
wolon ships were the only ones,
and so make them dear. and then
subsidies them so as to enable thorn
to carry cheap such is the blow in
at the bung-hole and drive out at the
spigot policy of the Journal, and with
such a pjlicy our; flag Iwill remain a
lorn and drsolata Btranger upon the
high seas, n it is now.

progress of tbe Orawfard case. The
writer a iserts that it was Mr. Cham

such a coarse that restra'ned Sir
Charles from appearing as a witness.
He also alleges that the sole indiscre

The Lord Lieutenant to-day received
au address from the Dublin Chamber
of Commerce complaining of the ad
verse effect on commerce of social dis
order and defiance of tbe government
authority. The Earl ol Aberdeen
promised remedinl measures.
Lord Mayor Sullivan, Mr. Gray, Mr.
Harrington. Mr. Murphy, Mr. Mc
Donald and others, members of the
Council, united in a separate address
praying tbe Lord Lieutenant to disre
gard tbe -address of the Chamber cf
Commerce, on the ground that the
Chamber, was not a representative
body, because it protested against
home rule.
The enthusiasm witnessed in Belfast
to-day has not been equalled here in
many years. In the numerous pro
cess ons which paraded the streets
were many women, who all displayed
the orange colors, ito dense waa tbe
crowd that fi led the principal thor
ough farts that trallio was blocked for
several hours. No sooner had Lord
Randolph seated bimsell in the
carriage tuar, was waiting tor
him man a crowu maue a
rush for the carriage, nn harnessed
the horses and proceeded to drag the
vnhicle Irom the station to tne hotel,
the enthusiasm displayed along the
lino oi marcn was prouixiuut).
This evening Lord Randolph ad
dressed a met-ting, when the enthusi
asm displayed upon his arrival was
repeated. The ball in which the meet
ing was hell was filled to its utmost
capacity. When Lord Randolph arose
to address the audience the cheer
ing began, and it lasted fully
seven minut as. wnm order waa re
stored Lord Randolph began his ad
dress. He said it lay with Ulster to
aav whether Ireland should remain
nait cf the empire. He denied that
the l'arnellites were true representa
tives cf the will of the Irish people.
Aa for Mr. Parnell himself hia only
title to be continued ai leader in the
ratty av in action of which no
one could be justly proud. By
playing upon the terror of the
peasantry and by rmans of brute 1
outiaireB npon hnman beings he had
secured live-sixths of tbe Huh mem
hers of Parliament. Lord Randolph
appealed t) all, regardless of creed, to
declare in favor of a treer and closer
union. If the aipcal failed he said
he would not mind leaving the issue
to the people of Ulster. He beMeved
the storm would blow over, bow
ever, and that the union
would emerge stronger than it
had ever been. But if the
nation was so apostate aa
t) hand over the Loyalists to the Par
ne)lites, there were plenty of men in
England who would stand by the
Loyalists. Lord Churchill expressed
the hope that the struggle would be
kept within constitutional limit), but
added that they must he prepared for
Tie worst.
The meeting adopted a resolution to
oppose Nationalism and to call npon
the people of England and (Scotland
for help.
Mr. John Morley, Chief Secretary
for Ireland, replying to Henry Do
Worma's iieslion as to whether Mr.
Morley adhered to the opinion he ex
pressed in n recent speech that it was
desirablo to exclude tho Pnriiellites
from Parliament, admitted that hi
speech was correctly reported, but
said be preferred to explain bis policy

Mr. Gladstone announced that the
government did not intend to sup
press the Irish National league.
Mr. Childers stated that ho bail ac
cepted tho resignation of Col. Hender

in his line at Chattanooga Saturday.
A spectacle peddler, who formerly
told bs wares in this city to who
ever would buy,' finally landed in
Chattanooga. He took a suite of
rooms at the Reed House and caused
it to be known far and near that tbe
great Dr. Julius Mendelsohn was pre
pared to fit glasses to the weakest of
eyes and tj make tbe blind Bee. He
exhibited a number oi recommenda
tions fiom prominent people of Nash
ville, and said that hia glasses were
mule at Ids optical institute in Clark
street, Chicago, 111. His fame spread
in all dire t ons. Detective Porter of
the National Detective Agency
was called upon to investigate
the standine of tbe great and only
Mendelsohn. He visited the doctor s
room in the role of a weak .Alabama
clerk. Mendelsohn I ecame very com
municative and told a great deal about
himself. Porter, in the maitime,had
discovered the fact that there waa no
ODtical institute on Clark street, Chi-

trouble, but when Porter told him he
waa a detective from JNashvilla Ju.ius
Aa no one desired to prosecute him
he was given time to settle up his bills
before bidding farewell to the mount
ain city. A neatly dressed young
man confessed to Porter that he
wan a silent pa; tier of the peddler,
and that 'hey were in a fair way to
make a fortune when tbe detective
exploded their little game. The
young man said he purchased the
