It will b ssen by the reorU of the
discaBHon between Patterson end
Phelan at Bjlivar on Tuesday tbat
both repudiate the AmlancJie,nd that
the deciflive issue of the canvass is
which of the two Congressional aspir
ants most emphatically rejects the ut
terances of the tabooed journal. Aifar
as the repudiating contest has gone it
meet be admitted that Phelan has the
decided advantage. Patterson holds
tip his bands and plead ntfy expreisia
the hope that he is not to be caised
with the odium of a good will
which distills d sease and death on all
that cluster under the shade of this
gorgeous TJpai tree. But Phelan seems
to regard itj utterances as fatal as the
bnath of one of Mahomet's succets
on, which was so foul that
the inrecta wh'cb floitad around
his head fell dnad as the birds which
attempt to ting in the groves of Java.

though the profit is still small as com
pared with 1883. Demand is real on
ably active, consumption heavier, and
profits have increased. Thanks to
the high tariff system, it has to be
sM-d that "the export movement
cots a very small figure, so thai tbe
future of the cotton mills of the
United States is bound np almost a'
together in the succesi tf the general

The feeling that the employment of
convicts in manufactures, in competi

jus'ice, is sp-eadiog wide and far, with
the result plainly coming, as it has
already come io some State, Unit tuch
an application cf convict labor muit
cea e. The great difficulty in putting
an end to tbe villous system lies in
tbe difficulty of determining, if the
presaut syttem is abolished, what eball
be done with tbe convict. He must
net be main'ained by the State in
p ire idleness. The most practicable
p'aa hitherto tried, is to let him to
work on the public roads. We have
been trying this plan in Memphij with
the chain gang, and we fiud the re
sults of the utmost value to the com
munity, without injury to anyone.
At present onr roads generally are
neglected. The railroads show us
whst good means of communici tion
can do to rouse up trade and inciease
cotnmorce. Good public iods can
not do all tbat railroads
accomp'isb, bat they make
the railroads more accessible,
and therefore ttiey open their benefits
to a wider extent of country. Good
roads favor lecai interchange of com
mo litter, ducreass tte farmer's ex

and kindly neighborly feeling by facil
itating mutual visiting and aiding as
sociation for publio objatts, and also
tbey increase iutulligenue by bringing
families and individuals into more in

conviet labor that injures honest labcr,
and to secure good publio roads to the
State, are two object i well worth labor

An Augusta, Ga., telegram of la-.t

'The monthly wages paid the 4000

W AeHiNOTOK, September 8. The
Treasury officials are pleaeed with the
success that has thus far attended
their invitations to holdeis of 3 per
cent, bonds to surrender them for re
demption. Of the $10,000,000 included
in this new form of c dl, about $1,030,
000 have been presented for redemp
tion. The purpose oi the new depart
ure was to obtain bonds for redemp
tion from individuals and corporations
willing to convert them into each to
use in more profitable inveetmente,
and thm obviate the necessity for
calling bonds held by rfatLnal banks,
thereby forciog a surrender cf national
bank currency. The bonds redeemed
nnder tho Treasury invitation we:e
surrendered by parties other than no
tional barA. It is not expected that
the entire $10,000,000 will be sui
rendered within the time specified,
but whatevi remount is thus preient
ed will save tbe bonds cf the bauks to
that extenr. It is propofed to con
tinue this policy cf inviting the eur
render of 3 prr cent, bi nds,, and it is
