For Icne.loiLv years couor, la n al ave
been irarle of the heavy ch&rgea '.o
. which B.e'cLn'. d s!i corsined to ot

creature mover. Io o.ber wordp,
high ebargea have mda Eucb inioidj
upon its commerce that that city at
lesgfh recognise tbe recur eity of
change. Tbe New Orleans Timet de
clares thai tbe ej'iiit of reform bea
Jonnd entrance, and that tbe healthy
growth of othtr cities has aiousei! tbe
people to vigorous action. "We see
Memphis," Says tbe Timet, "which
bae scffuied every iLfliction thai Naw
Orleans bas met with, almost doubling
key pornlation in tbe luit fevr yeara
and operiiog a new career of prosperity
for be: If; and toot Naebville, Atl
anta, Pal're ar.d sec re of others."
Tbe Ttavi fine a c:n ta say: "This
city ba not advanced relatively aa
rapidly as most of btr nighborr, be
ranee ehe hrs clung to old ido 8, to old

blindly maintained tbe old charges for

the staple away, but tcday the error
is rei n and tbe remedy will bo ap
plied. They muet be carried through
thoroughly anJ tiltc'.nally, no half
way me sauna, but a rooting out of
every abnse. The whole work
annst be done now. The Slatrt
jofas tbe Timti In the cll
for ' relorm; now the Commer

for compreesing, other reductions are
Jifcnised and will be effected. N6w
"oae main pillar of the old edifice line
fallen, the whole antiquated edifice
moat follow." If more (bun a fuir

extortion or monopoly, trade is driven

lightened ' rivals oruih out nnwire
grarplrjg and extortion. "It was re
Marked to m," taja the Statei, "that
every flxtd charge that exists here is
greater than it ought to be." Those
frank acknowledgments of error aio a
favorakle portent, and every friend of
the eld descent Oily will rejoice at it,
as a sign of roturu to that commercial
araerierliy that made New Orleans the
Metropolis of tbe South,
It fa doubtful whi ther evora groatt-r
omniercial ruititake woe made than
Uint cf the dairymen's war upou oleo
margarine. The discussion In Con
gress put that tr;ic tt ou a far liigliur
pionacle tlmu it bad piivljubly au
tallied. Th testimony of experts
showed the ma'eilal t be a whole
some ioou, ana i lie prejudice against
it wis iu a great uinaeure done avtay.
Hold ai but er It is a fraud, bnt it is
obtaining a statidiug that makes eucb
tricks do lorgirneoeBnary. SraJslrett'i
slates that Wtshlugton acccuntd ex
press the expectation that tbe tax
port it will reach from $1,003,100 to
$1,(100,000 annual revenue, and adds:
"The very enaolment ot the bill wa,
indeed, bat a recognition of tbe fact
that the new food product had come
to stay." Already the Boiton papeia
are publishing mark reports giving
the comparative prices of oleomarga
rine and batter. Ia these reports tbe
price of tbe best batter is quoted at
24 to 25 cents, wbile tbe best oleo can
be had for 17 rents. The li ng and tbe
sho.t of the matter is, that the people
are discovering that good oleomarga
rine ia better (ban bad butter, and tbe
.. agitation agalcst it last year extended
that conviction, and now the lately
desp'eed oleomargarine has become a
respectable article of commerce.
The high tcrifl jingoes are in a
quandary. Tbe high taxation they
have iLit tuted ia rising up like the
kind cf demon that, when raited, the
encl enter cannot lay again. A crisis
is ar'eirg that tbey cannot meet, and
only tariff reformers can tell bow it
sbonld be met. At the beginning of
tbe year $104,OC0,000 of 3 per ce.nl
were drawing Interest, now only $71,
COO.OCO, end by Juno next every bond
of them will bave been called in.
There are no other bonds that can be
called in for tome years, and the pre
mium npon these is too high to make
it p islb'e to bay them in the open
market.' The revenne that has been
paying off bonds will therefore roll ia
millions to tbe Treasury, where there
is do power to expend it. Tbe Secre
tary of the Treasury's last report
bowed that, tt the end of last ear,
tbe dibi bad ia ten months
bn reduced $364,347,917; at that
ratp next year will bring a inrplusof
$107,000,000, for which there are no
appropriations and without them the
jiioney cannot be expended. To keep
c cenmu atii g cucli a surplus is impos
sible; to stop tbe accumulation the
tariff must be reduced, and there is
where the Ugh tar If ji-goes are at
their wlU' e-nH. To allow the money
to lie id'e won'd hi a tor traction of
JlO.tCO.OCO a nr uth instead of Ihj ex
pansion ot JlO.Ot 0,000 a niontli from
tbo bond calls. Cxu ti e busiws of

greiis wouid nit provido for what iu
ciroirg at Hi last t saion, and the N-w
York Post e,a;s if it fail to do sr In Its
approaching short sesiion, "the Prei
dent will be obliged to call as extra
e talon, before niidsumuier." There is
no eacepiuj the dilemma, and puzi'ed
politicians ere trjing 'o eee a wy out
of the cuf ik tac. It appcari j robi
be that O.o high tariff peo
ple, condemned to lefRcn the
auicuut of tua'.ion somewhere, will
make the long petted sugnr interest
the eoiipfgiat. They would like to
iucludo loVacco aud whisky, but tbo
people will not agree to bih prices for
clothes aid b'ankets aid low cne.s for
tobaico and whisky. The people's
pa'k-nee Is great, but there is a point
beyocd it. But to f ee eucur would
remove only half the difficulty. Will
tbe duty on oranges, rics, hemp,
lumber, coal, codfish and salt have to
be abrogated aleo? If such, or some
thing like it, should have lo be tbe
case, then the reform cf our out
rageous tariff will bave begun,

In all minds, even the must hard

even when the feeling is reluctantly

or by presumptuous violerca attached
as a showy appendix to relations of

service is to partake of tbe nature
of a cuurt ceremony, and all the
arrangements will be made by tbe
Lord Chamberlain and the great off!
cors of the household. The order
of (he eoivire bin not yet been

include a couple of Uandel's grand

Bandall and Carlisle.
Washington, November 17. There
is a rnmor that, with Morrison out of
the way, Mr, Kindall and Mr. Carlisle
may be able to agree on a tariff bill in
tbe Fiftieth Congreja. Of coarse this
looks a little absurd, but, alter all, it
is not improbable. Carlisle and Ran
dall are both men of ability, who are
able to rise above mere personal
views, and yield more or less of their
own desires for the sake Of party har
mony and party eucees Randall is
not willing to yield bis vital principles
of adjustment of the necessary tariff
so as to protect the industries that
most need protection, but Carlisle
is quite willing to take whatever can
be had by way of compromii-e, es-
Sedaily since he has looked over the
eld and seen the renewed evidence
of growth of protection ideas in the

Why, my dear fribnd, it was good
enough for an editor or a king. Ah I
this was a splendid breakfaut. The
bist of egg bnad, b'sr uit, batter cakee,
frteh, yellow butter not o'eomarga
rlneor butterioe. Such ceffVe, with
such a fiagrauce that ye ' Traveler"
ai-ked the lady at tbe head of the
tab e if she dd not uss tbe mocha.
She said no. the rio; cmclusive proof
to ye humble rervent that u is iu the
makinv and preparing. We watched
the ladv wiea she fixed our second
cup and noticed that she 'Bl put the
sugar in tbe cap and p rureil iu a good
ly chance cf thick, ropy, yellow, sweet
cream; sirred the twu well together,
then poured the clear, strong, steam
ing coffee on it, stirring it the while.
This coflee wai too g -od even for an
editor or a king; it was good enough
for a god. Id Lot it strikes your cor
responded that this was tbe way tbey
made the nfctir for thofe ancient
worthies, and it was no doubt mixed
by the deft band of a lady, just as tbi-a
eoffeewas. Not brouuht to them ia a

We bave teen but one dull day trere
recently, and ibot was election da v.
The stores were clts.-d, and every one
expected tbe town to be Iu l cf voters.
Every one was on thi qui vive to catch
his man and induce bim, by persua
sion or othtr means, to Vjta his way;
but lot and beho d, the voters did not
cyetdliiza in the town worth a rent.
Out of a teni try of 1300 as the town
boxes, less than 400 voted, and they
all tobinoil ia a lifeless, doi't cro sirt
of a spirit. There is snd to be two
teaona for this: First, neither party
was pleased with their candidates;
second, the f. raier organizers cf the
Democratic pa ty wore not hero. Ws
are told tl at three men na.d to do the
orauiz'irg wora f r th s tswn and
ouuty I'letiher Brown, who 8 un
fjituuatoly diad; Hon'y Mie's, who
is 1 virg in tho Miessippi bot on,
and l!.a wtson, Who is one ot tne Ae-
siitai.t Attorney Con' rah of tte
Uni'i'd hiutes. Mr. Watson js at
Wasbinizton. temporarily. He eot
here the morning of the election, and
voted this is still his home. Every
ono wss glad to sea him, and re
marked that if Watson had been here
we would have had a much larger vote
cat. He is 0 id to be a good organizer
snd a tremendoui worker for his party.
It is ttrange how much one
orking man can do. It ia eaid
things were In this same ap
atheiic condition two years ago, until
one week before the election. Then
Watson beian a course of stirring up
among tbe boys. Just rolled up bis
eleeves and went to work, particularly
among the young men. He is one of
tbe young Democracy 7 The conse
quence was, a respectable vote was
E oiled. Wason is smart, energetic,
ce appearance, fine health, in tbe
vigor oi manhood, and a No. 1 lawyer.
We learn that Gen. Garland is much
pleated with bis work. He is one of
tbe beet of Democrats. Even tbe
wortl. Democrat v. is the sweetest
music to his soul. He is considered
here as the comics man of the party.
He is always willing and able to meet
any opponent on the stump.
This town has improved very mucn
in the last twelve months. Not a
great many houses, but some have
been built, ou nouses nave Deen re
painted and recovered, old fencei re
placed bv new ones, new awnings a
genera, appearance of newness aud
rejuvenation. The old men walk
faster, the boys and vonths run at
their ploy snd work with more glib
nees, and tbe girls are sprightlier and
rettier, if possible, tban heretofore,
lore cotton is coming here and mora
goods sold, but at very low prices
More housts and lots have been sold
in tbe last month than in the three
years previously. People are moving
in tor the benefit of tt e schools, and
to go into business. Tbe public rchool,
presided over by Capt. Winston, is al
most full : nnoils have corns in from
the surrounding country, besides tbe
families who have moved into town.
This is a fi st claes school. If a boy or
firl pei feet themselves in the corricu
n m of this school they need not go to
Oxford or any other place. The citi
zens here are somewhat proud that
Senator Walthall, one of tbe first men
of the nation, they think, got all of
his education in this town, at about
such a school as their present public
school. MIfs Watson, the principal of
Maury Institute, a school for girls, in
formed your "Traveler" that her
boarding department is nearly .full,
that she could accommodate but four
more girls with board. The teaching
at this school is coneidered very thor
ough by the patrons. We have not
learned the condition of the boarding
departments of the other schools. All
in all. vour "Traveler" has not seen
any town in bis peregrinations that
pleased him si well ai uony springs,
litre he finds health, refined society,
good schoo'g, an orderly town, flue
water the best drink in the world, in
he opinion of vour correspondent;
five churches, tho pulpits of each well
filled ; plenty ol lawyers, learned in
the law aa well as iu the quibbles and
technicalities of the profession;
plenty of skillful phjsic'aos,
who claim that they relieve
and cure as many of the ills of life as
sny other set of doc'ors. There is
aleo a fine dentist, Dr. Ko-s, who says
he can do, and people say it is so, ai
fine worker any city man can and at
more reasonable prices.
Weetill find here tne irrpprescib'e
and almft nhiquitons Waller Rob
