The Executive Committee of the f,
Teachers' Institute held a meeting {
last Saturday and drew up a pro- {l
gramme of proceedings f?>r that body (
when it meets in Convention at Alt- v
beville Court House on the .".1st July j
and 1st August. From the order of j
business which we print below, our
readers will see that a rare treat is in ei
store for tl:e me in be rs of the In>ti- j,
tute and for the public who are cor- v
dially invited to attend. The speak- (,
ers selected for the occasion are all (_<
practical teachers, or well known (j
friends of education, and the subjects' ?
to be discussed are all of vital interest, u
The address of the President, the!.,
Rev. Dr. C?rier, we are sure will be 'H
distinguished by the learning, elo-jjj
quence and earnestness which nm-i
formly characterize the public speech- fM
e3of the President of Kr.-kine College.
Prof. Morton is well-known as an au-;|,
thorily on (iraded Schools, and our' p,.
]>eoj)le may expect from him a mostjt|
interesting and practical address. e)
Major Hughs. Thompson, State Su- t|
perintendent of Education, will also
be present to address the Institute,}
and he will bring to bear, on wliat-j
ever subject he may choose to speak U
011, all his experience as a successful j 1<
teacher, and as State Superintendent,> (?'
which, joined to his ability as a public
speaker, will enable him to deliver to Sc
the teachers and the public an address >'
worthy of himself, his audience and [[
liissubject. In addition to these three; o!
addresses, short papers will be read by j*
other teachers, and when' \ve mention j,
the names of Rev. I)r. Bonner, Prof, jai
Hood and others, we have said enough ' J"
to satisfy the public that admirable, ft
essays and discussions may be expect- P

The Institute includes in its mem-j si
bers teachers and friends of education,:
both male and female, and it is the j ir
desire of the promoters that all friends
of education, and especially school,'tj
trustees in this county, should identi-|d
fy themselves with the Institute. A
most cordial invitation is given to the' P
public generally and particularly to tl
school trustees to attend the meetings '
of the Institute.
Abbeville has always had a high.1'
reputation for hospitality, and when (>i
the Institute holds its convention, the: tl
membersof the Institute who attend!",
si
will havean opportunity to prove that v
hospitality. The members will he;'s
entertained during the sessions of the1"
convention at the houses of our citi- r<
zens. ; ^

Senator M. C. Butler Interviewed. 1 tl
I T
We publish in our columns this! t]
morning a report of an interview heldin
by a correspondent of the Xttr York i ^
Herald and Gen. M. C. Butler, iu!ai
which our senator expresses his opin- !
ion on many interesting topics and does \
so in his characteristic plain-speaking j v:
way. Our renders will find much tojjj'
interest and instruct them in the "in-L.j
terview" and we thiuk they will agree j sc
cordially with Gen. Butler in his Jj1
views. We especially commend the j s;
honest manliuessshown !?y lien. Iiut-jti
ler in his remark on the so-called
' backing-down" of the* Democratic j d:
party. Having done all that it could i "
properly do to carry its point, lie
thinks that the Democratic party can w
honorably pass the appropriation bills J
dissevered from the repealing sections tl
which the President has thrice veto- j^
ed. We agree with him entirely;a]
when he says "that the discussion is j I
not a matter of much immediate prac-J tx]
tical consequence to us of the South." j a
We only regret that all the Senators 0
and Representatives who are in Washiugton
to give voice for "us of the <1
'' " J ;-1 ? - i -- * n?..Mnr n I
oouiu' u1u 1ru su la|ihm
in Congress many weeks ago, and ji;
tnereby choke oft" the needless and j I
wearisome, and endless discussions on j j,
the appropriation bills which have: u
been instrumental in accomplishing
only one thing, and that a tiling great- j i,
ly to be deplored?the stirring up of j a
ill-feeling and sectional hatred. j
Gen. Butler's opinions on the negro I v
exodus are in accord with those of our ?
I)
people and with those expressed by ;
ourselves in the Press and JIanncr.lw
He uttered a wise saying when hej^
said, u\Vp have too much cheap negro |sj
labor in the South," and we commend j v
his remarks to the reflection of our r'
readers. "We differ from him, liowev- L
cr, when he speaks of the gradual!0
distribution of the negroes throughout
the North as a disposition of them j ti
which would settle the much vexedj ^
race question in this country. \Vi'ia,
can see only harm in prospect for;
Loth the whites and the blacks by anv \t:
- i u
thing like general diffusion of the j p
negro race throughout the country.!^

question further, we refer our readers c

there would be no way of estimating I

a TIIE PRICE OF C0TTO3T. .""T C

,s" [Xeio and Courier.]
|:l" In the Now York Financial and Comj
nicrcial Chronicle of hist week appears a Me
j'" I communication from Mr. W. L. Brown, tc
.,7! of Liverpool, on the high price of cotton ^
'.'jnow ruling, the causes for its advance, ^
I and the prospects for its continuance. u
. ' lie takes the ground that the present rise ci
!lu j is due t<$ circumstances similar to tho^c y
n" i which governed in 1S(>8, viz: to spinners
ll" j becoming excited over tho relatively !,\
101 strong position of the staple, and the ab- m
in~ normally low price of tho same, and ir
, j rushinir into market, huyinir un sunnlios
%' '1 largely in excess of tlieir requirements, j
and working the sumo oil' on lull lime, ;}i
- the ell'ect of all which being, then ;is no w 11
to unduly force up the price of the staple. 1:
lie; claims that the reason for the eoutinlie!
nance of the present rise is that "spin- J
la- no is are hoodwinked by brokers into
ic- purchasing at one time more than is sufie
tieientJbra .veek's consumption," under Ir
!>e the alarm catikod by a del'uiency in the
vcivisilile supply, and he contends that
>t- nothing will stop the stimulation of pri,vo
i ecs but iJe adoption of short time, or an
ee j indexible resolve on the part of spinners *5
lid i not lo I?o so hoodwinked \>y brokers as;?|.
n-i above mentioned, hut to lay in only, i**
of j week by week, just what supplies may ar
il- be needed to cover their contracts. 01
nt Tlie Chronicle,, commenting on Mr. ^
1 i-. Krown's letter, thinks that he has partly p)
le. I touched upon the true reason for the ad- al
no viiiiru in coiloii, uur uoun ziiit iiiuiit nu
I'o right in charging it upon the brokers'. It }t]
>r. eontcuds that the present scare of the f'j!
ill s-piuncrs was. under the existing cireum- in
is stances, inevitable. 1l aays: "The visiiis
bio supply, already reduced to very low tl;
or figures, was decreasing weekly, and the
li- period of small receipts was approaching ,n
e- whila Knlish spinners did not hold two ti
lis weeks'consumption. Such facts neecs- h<
li- sattly produced groat sensitiveness, audi'*'
py it only required u little increased buying K'f
3 a at Liverpool and a few storms here to set!
us- prices in motion, with nothing to stop b<
to them until spiuuers should decrease con-!111
sumption or accumulate enough slock toj^1
make them feel safe in any probabloeon- w
tingoncy. This is history now." w
S" This is ("lie reason given by the Finan
.u" cial Chronicle as the true one for the 11
present cotton excitement. Discussing:?,
. the state of the market, and, whether or j
1 not this condition of affairs will he like- j w
[!.. | ly to continue, it says that no one canlci
;l's forecast the future, and the point for cv-jjj]
orv cautious man to consider is whether !*a
l.lc the conditions are not possible for a turn j w
" backwards. It then proceeds toon inner-j b
ate the conditions likely to bring about jej
this turn in the tide of prices. First, the
stock in the hands of the spinnersjias to
bo estimated, and this is regarded as a
,. vital point, since now that spinners have
j t begun to buy excitedly, they arc not like
ly to stop uutM they get on hand a good
'' surplus. Figures show that on the 1st of
April there were held by spinners in
I1* Croat ]5ritiun 1'24,000 bales against HI,000
, on 1st of March, and since then they
have added about f)0,0:)0 bales additional,
P" making their stock in the middle of May
i about 17.),00o bales, with a weekly c;msumption
of about 55,000. Continental
spinners have materially strengthened I
tueir postions since tney oegau nuying
of on the lst,of March, anil if tiioy should
to deem it prudent so to do, the}' might
lie rcadih' cease purchasing largely during
the next two months, and confine thciu5s
selves to purchases, from week to week,
to of only such supplies as are barely neeesns
sary to keep them going. They might
of buy fifteen thousand bales less than conic
sumption during that period, instead of
re fifteen thousand bales more, as they have
oy been doing for several weeks past,
ve Next there is danger that the visible
supply may unduly influence sellers innr
to relying upon still higher prices. This)
u- is not all to be considered, for the invisi-j
Ide as well as the visible must be estima-j
H- ted in order to arrive at the actual supply.
t|- At present the visible supply is about 80h,
OU0 bales less than it was on the lirst of
ire April, whe n it was about 400,000 bales less
ds than at the same time the preceding year,
cr But during that time spinudrs* stocks
li- have proportionately increased, and the
a supply, visible and invisible, is really ou t
ly about 240,000 bales less than, it' was
lis one year ago, instead of being 480,000
bales, as stated. And further it is realie
soned that stock in the hands of spinners
he is of more weight against the market
than stock at pdit-*, for it enables spinners
lie to hold oil' from buying at' any moment
ite they see lit to do.
lie A nother fact considered as bearing mail
terially upon the probable future ol'^prili
ccs of cotton is the profitableness of manlie
ufacturc. It is sliown by figures!ha; prit-li
ccs for goods have not advane< d relativero
ly with those of the raw* material, and
is that, indeed, there has been a decline* hi
m the price of manufactured goods and n
as yarn* hi nee last your, ilie tendency oil"
lie iliesuconditions would naturally bo toj"1
re make spinners consume as little ami buy 1
u: as .sparingly as possible. lb
x- This is an analysis of the points made i p
us by the Financial Chronicle to show how;
ul it is possible that the present high price
of cotton may decline, and it therefore
reasons that it would be wise in planters j
to sell to Liverpool buyers at the ruling
prices for fall delivery ull the cotton they n
arc, sure of being able, to deliver at that
,ie ti>ite. These prices would be profitable,
and while the upward movement may
continue, still prices may a's.? fill, since
' li at this early date, nothing definite can be
<>i told regarding the conditions of the crop
f>" in the future. >

fd The fact has just been discovered that
the late A. T. Stewart left provision for
. the development of a tfrcat pbilantbropic ?,
's enterprise in the shape of a university so j
:,i munificently endowed that it will furnish |
the highest education at an extremely low |
m price. It was as ii preliminary step to
1,0 this enterprise that Mr. Stewart Durchasl!r
ed the Warden City estate, on Long Island
a- itself about as large as Manhattan Island,
ve and all thc*extensive improvements are
designed only to be the surroundings of
" a great collegiate system. The' inagnificent
cathedral, in whose crypt the moral
chant's bones were expected to rest, is, of
"t course, to be the architectural monument
"vl_ of Gannon City ana around it will be h
ut grouped the episcopal residence, the male ti
re, college, female college and divinity 1,1
ry school. The two main college buildings
,,s will bo on a vast scale, each with a front- ?
li^' age of 275 feet, and containing three hun- ti
i tired private and singlo bed rooms for u
is students, which together with dormito- v
al ries, will accommodate live hundred stu- "j
i'1" dents within each buildihg. The endow- n
^ j ment is so generous that Judge Hilton, k
ixl I who is working to curry out Mr. Stewart's <
?y I ideas has decided that the en tire expenses 'J
kV* of a student, male or female, for board, tj
washing, attendance and tuition, shall y
i? not exceed ?S0() per collegiate year of forny
j ty weeks, while, boside this, there will be j

I will say, directly, that cotton at present!

iiy we must pay the freight and all other jc
neessary, and many unnecessary expenses of- ,
aiisporiation. of course, all this calls for j,
iore eotton. The cotton farmer does not',

If we raise all our own provisions, we will t c

which is easy of transportation and

There is not a single farmer within my
nowledgc, who has made any money when
} had to pay nil money to his hands; but
ic merchant who sold provisions to those]
Uid* made the money. c
r^ast year's crop is estimated at five million)
iree hundred thousand hales. While we are
Jeving at the low price of cotton, let us re- '
ember Unit we have made one million hales I
ueh. Su? h a large crop drives all coinpetloii
in buying out, each buyer knowing that
j can get all the cotton lie may want at his
ivn figures. A short crop would make each
nver hurry to get lils share before it was all
>ld. The average farmer, tinder our present (
,'stem of all cotton and no provisions, will /
j more likely to lose what little mbney he
lay have than make any. Our best farmers J
c not. making any money now, because *
ley have to sell their cotton In competition
itli those who raise cotton to buy everything )
Hit which they use. <
It is not necessary or advisable t<< quit rals-1*

Is for Its cultivation; besides, it is a crop J
lat must be raised somewhere, and the Sout h t

This book Is a record of daring deeds, heroic:

llscovories uud theories with which the Afrl:>wi
explorers delight to pad ont their two-volitne
narratives, It;wlll prove to be the most
atixfaclm-y one that can be obtained at any
>rice. . ..
it gives In a clear, connected concise, and
/cry Interesting style, a full and authentic
ecord of the great traveler s explorations and
ulventurex in Africa, from the tlino he start:d
on Ills lirst expedition, until, with the halfstarved
surviving companlonsof hlstoilsand
buffers, ho emerged from his Journey
;hrough(the MystcrlousCannibal Lands ond
its Wonderful descent of the Coniro. luto the
civilization of the Went Coast.
It is unnecessary to say anything laudatory
>f Mr. Stanley or the great work lie has accomplished
by his exploratious in Africa,
riie press throughout the civilized world has
innounccd his spiendid successes and sounded
forth Ills fume and distinguished scholars
r>f Europe and America have honored him bv
uppreciativo testimonials to the value and
magnitude of his work. '"He fa," nald tho lamented
Dr. I'etermun, "the Klsmarck of African
Explorations, who has, l>y his untiring
energies, setat rest the theories of a thousand
rears. Ills work is unparalleled in the whole
lilstory of discovery In tho world." Of bis
experience* on the Congo, Stanley says:
Our days of dattle and our days of hunger
may he forgotten as years of peace and rest
may roll over our heads, but our months of
toll and wild energy In the cataracts, never;
for each day of that period has its own terrible
tale of narrow escapcs. of severo injuries,
of despair and death. \V't? lived as though we
were iu a rock tunnel, subjectut Intervals to
the thundering crash of passing trains."
.Some publishers have hired people to write
the history of Stanley's travels. How much
more Interesting must the story be, if told in
his own words',as iu this book.
The book also contains, in a condsnsedform
Lieut. Cameron's story of his three years'
wanderings in Africa. Although heand Stanley
both crossed the continent their routes
were widely different, and Cameron's narrative
Is a charming and picturesque record ol
travels with strange companions though n
new and hitherto unknown region teeming
with strange races of people; and for many
renders It will be more enlertnlnllig than
Stanley's recital of his bolder and more san?
gtilnary exploits. After rcachingtho luterioi
(where he mot Livingstone's dead body on Its
way home) Cameron marched westward with
Arab chiefs as far as they ever penetrated,
and then Joined a Portuguese slav^-hunting
caravan which escorted him to Bthe: and he
finally reached the Atlantic, in desperate
straits, about the time Stauley was starting
down the Congo.
