of the reins of jtovemaieot, and poh-.t with
priii to what they are pleased to call t!.e
result of a protective administration. Utile
realizing that they cail on us ta witness the
result of four yers of democratic rale. Fur
thermore, they do not cail attention to the
many industries established, and the rise of
wages in many establishments since the
fourth of March, which more than counter
acts the failures and redactions of wastes
elsew here- The new administration baa im
bued confidence im men of business, and it
is as plainly visible aa tbe noon-day sun that
the nation ia moving on to a period of un
paralleled prosperity. This is indicatea by
tiie fact that the balance of trade, which bad
been maintained sin.e I?76 in our favor, bad
during Cleveland's ad.niaist ration declined
until in lJs it hail become an adverse bal

Tj this section, with our few eHAhlbbel in

What we now iiet-l is men of capita! arid
enterprise, to establish various industries for
tue devlupmetfcand ciacutACturo of our
raw materials. These raw niAterials. the
principal of which are cullon and iron, may
lie tiiAiiUtjctufed where they are produced,
thus saving cost of transportation to distant
factories. Northern capital and energy re
daily beinir iuvtsti-d to this end. and the
man h to prosperity has Ix cud. The farmer
is Mnilit e over the pppct of a crop which
will have been unsurt a.-d :i many years.
Cotton, while laic in some places, promises
an extraordinary goo.1 yield, while finitsof
ail kinds is so pltiil.fu! ar.d cb.ap that it
oarely Jays the cost of traiistortation to
market. Watermelons are shlpi-ed from
this c ity by trainloauV, and many find no
niaiket. If any of vnr colon d population
starve at this season of ;he year it ia lor
want of something much more substantial
than the much-covt-ted waterm. -lion. Here
tutoie the people of the northern states and
of the southern states have entertained very
erroneous ideas, one of another, and as a
native Pennsylvanian and a Sornerret ts..unty
republi.-an I am wimess to the fait that
these ideas, to a more or less extent, exist at
present. Were it not f r these misutidtr
standins. "eonria, together wills other
sotjlhern states, would be strongly republi
can, la that '.hey are strorgly h'.-i protec
tionist. The memory of past prejudices,
and tiie fear of necr.) sMpremat y. have ma-ie
the s-ates solidly democratic : but now
since it has fctcn denionstralfd that tbede
mocracy is ni safe-uard against neitro
supremacy, there ia noticeable a trowing
H -Terence of op'.nioi nrginlinit political
questions, It is a very unfortunate circum
stance that the negro is amur.it tu, for he
always has been and will continue to be a
menace to our peai-e, so long as he remains
as at pnsxnt : for mjtro supremacy is unde
strah'e. and would not le U.lerate.1 by any
hifthly nvpectahle population. It would he
manifestly unjtisl to deprive the tugro of
the right of sn.Trage, her-.ce the I'.nly rt-aieiiy
remaining is to assign one territory or stafe
for hU sole csrctipation, at:d wherein he
alone may hold ollice, and whereof he alone
may be a citizen. Sash legislation would
not deprive tint of the right of sufrrje. or
of the riht to rtside in what, ever state he
might choos-twhHe it wvuld end forever a
trreat source of urpleasantnesis and he more
satisfactory, not alone to the white poj ula
tion, but to the negro himself. It is the
hope of all true Americans that all cause for
ill feeling between iopie of different sec
tions 1 peacably removed, that the grand
march to prosperity so gloriously be:un may
