a man down hill and everybody gives
him a kick. Toe poor make ro new
friends. Even nations jo n in crushing
out wk and defenseless neighbor.
It is ouly success that inspires sym
pathy, sdulat oa and help. Twenty
years a . o the desolated South had no
friends. Ktia was the under dog in
the fih', a id in order to complete her
degrad toisnd destruction, she was
ubi 'Ced t the ordtal of recomtruc-
linn morr c .'a-nltous to her material
interests than the ravagee of the war,
But with tl.e advent ol home ru'e
cams the silver lining to the cloud,
and f ir twelve years the march cf the
South has been steadily onward until
hs has reached a prosperity, unprece
dented In her history, and superior to
that ot any section cf the Union. Of
course this prospeiity h(S s scored for
the Booth the friendship of the whole
country. Our peop'e and sec
tion are not scourged by strikes
tr any of the social evils that beset the
country. All classes are moving for
ward in harmony. Oar industrial
growth has been marvelous, and now
the whole country joins in ptalse of
the South. Col. A. K. McOlure wsa
in Nashville a week ago, and ha said
to a reporter: "Just what I predicted
four years ago, when 1 made my first
of four tripe in the Pouth, Ibat it is
the greatest section of this country.
I found prcspetl y and a cheeiful peo
ple everywhere except at New Or
leans. A serioiii depression eiists
there ow'ng to the trouble about
sugar. We can d-i . it bout cctton,
yon know, lm' not without sugar. As
a whole the South is looking gTand
and promising. The North is fall of
men waitirg to g South, and they are
making their preparations new. More
than thir, the sarplcs population of
the East is beginning to think of the
South as an objeotive point. The
Bouth is infinitely a grander country
than tbe West, and whenever yon can
get home emigration turned toward
the South tbe foreign will follow." Jn
these utterances Col. McClure vo ces
the geneial opinion of the North
ern people, that the South offers
greater inducements to immigration
than any section ot the Union. 'The
North is full of men waiting to go
South," says Co!. McClure. Let them
come; they will be cordially wel
comed. The industrial growth of tbe
Bouth during the hut decade is only
the beginning of tbe wonderful ad
vancement of this section in adding to
her own and the nation's wealth, tor
the new wealth ot the Bouth will be
largely diffused throughout the North,
and Southern prosperity means the
common prosperity of the whole coun
try. The opinion obtains everywhere
that the South will present for the
future more prosperous Industry
than either the North or West. There
Are many natural causes to contribute
to that result, as the Southern people
are utilising for the first time their
great advantages. The e can be no
limit set t the poseibilit es of the
Bouth in tbe development ot its Indus-
. trial interests. Ten years a;jo, when
the Bouth first emerged ftom the deso
lation cf war and the Btill greater
desulnt'oa of the reconstruction era,
a prediction that there would
be such a wonderful prog
ress in the development of the agri-
. cultural, manufacturing, mining, rail
roading of the Southern States as has
been done, would have bee a regarded
as the vagary cf an enthusiast To
show the industrial growth of Die
South we have only to look at the fig
urea. Since 1871) the South has added
11,000 miles to her ralroad mileage,
the bnilding of which, added to the in
vestments in old roads and their lm
prove ment, must toot up little, if any,

For many, many, long a?d weary
yean England has tormented Ireland.
By one of thoto turns cf retributive
justice that time evolves, tbe troubled
baa become the troubler, and Ireland
new to'ds England in a state of doubt,
uncertainty and sore apprehension.
No longer can Ireland be refused re
dress. No longer c in tbe strong grasp
of force dominate tbe will of a deter
mined people. Every Englishman
knows tday that Ireland is a seeth
ing mare ready to burst out in flame
and fury from coast to coast. Evety
town and every village would be a
scene of revolt and violence if tbe
hopes of coming justice were now
dashed to the ground. The knowl
edge of this ttate of things awes every
rt fl jcting English mind. What must
be daceT For tbe solution ot this
eventful question every eye turns to
Mr. Gladstone. No one else baa a
plan. There is a multitude awaiting
the announcemeLt of the measure he
has to propose that they may attack
them with fury and denounce them
with bitter rags. But not one of them
has a mode of pacifying Ireland
to propose. Tbe opposition will
utter their scorn and exhibit
their hatred cf every practicable mode
of meeting the crisis in vain, as they
can only find fault, only show their
spite; but while contending against
what is proposed to be done, they will
be able to offer no plausible solution
of the difficulty themselves. Never
were people more btfiled, checked
and embarrassed than the enemies of
Ireland are at this moment They see
the handwriting. upon the wall direct
ed against themi elves. They read the
dreadful vicnt, mcne, Uhl, vphartin,
"thou art weighed in tbe balan ei and
srt found wauling," and they shudder
and are at their wits' end, knowing
not what to do. Such is the condition
to which Ireland's enemies in Eng
land are reduced, and Ireland is tri
umphant and 1U leader is a terror to
every party, faction and clique in Eng
land, however exalted their station,
thtt opposes justice for Ireland.
Even before Mr. Gladstone's measures
are known, contention concerning
them has led to defection in bis
own Cabinet. But the fores of
rent events,
defection or
the might of cur
is stronger than
treachery or ma
licious war from unfaithful friends
or the revilings ot open enemies. The
grand old man, calm with the con'
sclousneea of power and the support
of right and justice, will pursue the
path he has marked out for himself,
undeterred by the commotion and tur
moil around him, and to tlio confu
slon of bis mortified opponents he will
triumph. To-morrow week his plan
of concession to the claims of Ireland
will be laid before Parliament, and
struggle will begin that will shake
England to her center, and unite Ire'
land in bonds even stronger and more
determined than those that already
fetter and clasp the na'ion into a com
mon brotherhood. Iu tbe meantime
in England all is uncertainty and
dread, f. r who can foresee what catas
trophe may result from the stiauge
complications that now fill every in tel.
lignntsoul among tbem with auxitty
and fear for the near future ? while the

Am rg the encouraging business in
dications of t: o day ia the reflux of
money from the banks that boa suc
ceeded iU long fbw intf them. Money
goes to the banks beatisi there is no
eniplcyuient for it. When it comes
out and percolates the avenues of
bmiuess it is because there is move'
ment, and because iifj is stirring in
the arteries of commerce. The fact,
therefore, that deposits are decreasing,
the surplus lowering, aud loans ex
tending is a cheering one, calculated
to revive hope, inspire confidence,
and encourage enterprise. The New
York Indicator, reviewing last week's
statement ot th New York banks,
says that stupendous changes hive
taken place in the attitude of money.
There has been a demand for currency
for tbe interior of over $2,000,000
fir the week, while nearly as
much in gold wat shipped for
Europe. The result is that tbe bank
reserve has decreased over $7,000,'
000, but B'ill leaving an ample sulli-
cieucy behind. The deposits were re
duced over $11,000,000, leaving over
$3SO,000.000 itill in thi banks, which
is over $3,000,000 more than wsa held
at the opening of the year. The de-
t t, .
crh e ui uepojiiB prooauiy caused a
calling in of some loans, for there was
a decrease in them of $3,626,700, which
is larger tban in any year before the
present one. Tbe deposits still exceed
ftie loans by over $24,000,000, which ia
contrary to what is usual, for tbe loans
are generally from $5,000,000 to $30,-
000,000 beyend the deposits. The gen

Open Hostility to the GflTeraraeot
Their Reasons for Leaving- the
Cabinet-British Politics.
London, March 30. Mr. Chamber
lain and Mr. Tievelyan aie preparing
a plan of open hostility to tbe govern
ment. They are arranging to make a
s atement to the coat try through the
House of Commons of their res sons
for leaving tbe Cabinet, and will ac
company this statement with a piop -sal
of a measure for the government
of Ireland, which they will j nntly
prepare. They will endeavor to con
solidate all the opponents of Mr. Glad
stone in the sap port of their scheme.
The Sootmm slates that Mr. Glad
stone's scheme of home rule for Ire
laid allows tbe Irish to have a sepa
rate currency of their own, "the result
of which would be," tbe paper declares,
"the int-oduction of dollars and cecti
currency, in imitation of thtt money
of the United (States which has beeb
so potent a factor in forcing Kng'gnd
to make terms with tbe Lijh."
The House of Commons, by a vote
of 258 to 127, to-night rejected Mr.
Helton's motion urging that negotia
tions be entered into with other coun
tries with tbe object of establishing
universal penny pojta.e.
Mr. Charles Cameron, Radical mem
ber for Glasgow, introduced a mo ion
for the disestablishment and disen
dowment of the Church of Scotia id.
Mr Gladstone declined to interfere
with the question. f-CDtchmen, he
said, were able to decidd the question
for themselves.
Mr. Cameron's motion wis rejected
by a vote of 237 to 125.
The Tories calculate that sixty
Whigs aid forty Radicals will at cede
from Mr. Gladstone's party.
That part of the Irish bill relating to
the presence of Irish representatives
at W e jtminbter has not beensjltled.
There are two proposals before the

Bkklin, March 30 Herr Von Putt-
kamer, Prussian Miuistc-r of the Int3
rior, in the Raichstag to day made a
nnreonal appeal in behalf of Emperor
William for a continuance of the anti
Socials'; law. In the conree of tis ad
drers he exclaimed: "Iu tbe Em

ordrtr, I assure vou that his majetty
won in regret profoundly and urteve
deeply if the pro'onua'ion r.f the anti-

would shed his blco l in order to m: i
tain the law."
Dr. Von Puttkatner referred to tbe
Socialist troubles in Belitium. which.
he said, threatened the peace of u
rope. It behooved Germanv. he con-
tinned, to devise measures to prevent
such disorders. Had Belgium pos
sessed Jaws lorbidding the publication
of Socialist pamphlets and the holding
of socialist meetings, the recent trou
bles would probably have been avert
ed. The Belgians were Catholics, but
the church ha J proved unequal to
copiBg with the outbreak of wild pas
sion. Gormany'a etteng monarchy,
one of the moet solid bulwarks of
order, was able and prepared to crnsh
the slightest Socialist movement. The
prolongation of the anti-Socialist law
was intended as a preventive measure.
Dr. w indtnorst said he tailed t see
any connection between tbe Belgium
disorders and German Socialists.
Dr. Von Puttkamer in reply said that
according to newspaper repot ti Ger
mans instigated the etrixers in .Bel
gium. He wished to point out that
the inadequate laws of Belgium had
rendered disorders possible, but be
denied that German Socialists were
implicated in the troubles. Tbe Bei-

a speech, ridiculed "the brag" of the
Orangemen as to what they would do
in the way of resisting the government
of an Irish Parliament if one should
be estiblished. He reminded his
hearers that when Mr. Gladstone was
carrying through the work of dises
tablishing the church in Ireland, the
Orangemen made the same kind of
threats of rebellion that they were
making now against home rule, and
that when disestablishment was ac
complished they all submitted tamely

Coweta (Ga.) Advertiier: For tbe
pat few days there has been consider
able excitement amorg tloso in tbe
secret, about the mysterious spirit
manifet tat ions in and about an old
vacant Louse in tbe suburban parts of
the city. For rome time strange
noises have been beard at
d fffirei.t times of the night, re
sembling cries cf a woman, the appeals
of a child in distress, the diugging
of chains and tbe heavv fuctsteps of
a ma?, with occasional flashes of a red
and blue light through tbe crack of
the legs. We undere'and that during;
the war several men tnd women mys
teriously made their disappearance
in the vicinity of this old building,
and the impreeaion is that these
strange apparitions are nothing more
nor less than the ghosts of the dead
who were cruelly dealt with in the
da-k days of the war.
A great many people, bath ignorant
and intelligent, have always believed
and still believe that ghotti inhabit
old dilapidated buildirg, and there
are those who claim the power of see
ins them when others cannot. One
man, more brave than bis neighbors,
tells ns that he has for the past week
seen ths form of a man, a parent! y
about six feet high, with high cheek
bones, long hair and teeth, walking in
his building between sunset and
dark, dragging over the flour a heavy
chain which makes a hideous noise.
Desiring to see whether it was a ghost
or a live mac, he walked up to the
end of the house by the ch nmey and
peeped thronsh the opening. What
he saw wonld make the blood can
gral and the hair stand on end.
He says the ghost was wtapped ,
in a torn sheet, his arms an J
breast were bare, bis eyes loos-ei
like fi e, and a white and bluish bltzs
ran out cf his month, reaching to tbe
flo.ir. In his right band he held a
little child, whose face revealed the
traces of the severest toiture, and in
his left hand was the head of a woman.
On the floor sat two women with hair
falling down over their baro shoulders,
with a hatchet in their bands chop
ping what ssemel to be the bkull of
an infant In the corner sat an old
negro tied to the fl or with a rope, his
eyes sunk in and his legs cut off just
bekw the knees. While he was watch
ing this strange and mystic scene, a
Btiain of soft yet sad mi;s'c seerred to
come up through tbe floor, accom
t anied by the cobs of an old woman.
When tbe mmic ceased the ropes
dropped fr:m the old man in tbe cor
ner, the chains became unlocs?d from
the gho6t in theeoter of the room,
and in an instant they all vanished
into air.
The Plfg-ilnaafre to Knock.
A correspondent cables from Dublin
that he had just journeyed to Knock,
March 25th, to witness tlio observance
of "Lady Day." He says: "The pil
grimage to the now famous chapel
was greater than on any day since
1870, the year following the reported
apparition of the Blessed Virgin.
Thousands of pilgrims, tho ma
ioritytif them women, many of whom
had traveled all night, flocked to
the shrine, and many English, French
and American men and women arrived
early and remained throughout the
services in commemoration of the an
nunciation of the Virgin Mary, to
which the day is devoted by the
church. The spectacle presented by
the thousands of people eneiured in
open-air devotions was very impres
sive. The tendency of the crowd
was to congregate in front of the cable
of the chupcl where the apparition
is said to have appeared, nnd the
throng which found room in the space
commanding a viow of that spot wa
dense and immovable. All approaches
to the chnnel were blocked with ve
hicles, and streams of pilirrirus wer
constantly arriving. Probably fjOu
pilgrims made the louinev to Knock
on foot. One, a boy, partially blind,
walked with his father the entire dis
tance from Donegal.
Is tbe Middleman flolug; OnlT
Boston Transmit: "Wl y can't I
buy at your mill ?" asked a Western
buyer of an Eastern manufacturer, the
other day. "I don't know what there
is to orevent you from so doing," was
the latter's reply. "Now that I am
East, then, I think I will call upon
you," and he did. He saw the line
of goods in procefis and finished,
like them, ' and was inclined
to give an order. He'wosobliged, how
ever, to travel a few miles to Boston
and visit the treasurer for prices, but
found that it woe to his advantage for
cash. He had been ordering these
same fabrics through New York at a
large advance. He nassince sent sev
eral largo orders direct, for future de
livery. Others in his section have fol
lowed suit, and even home buyers have
found it to their profit to trade without
intermediatioa. f o many of these first
price orders bave been received that
the Eastern manufacturer, after pri
vately ascertaining that his Western
friends were disponing of his goods at
30 per cent advance oa the mil l prices,
has felt justified in raising his rates
and discharging the middlemen.
