JUDOS MELTON'S REPLY TO MR.
The Charge Re-ttated with Precision
aod the Authority Given-A Question
SPAKTANBURO COURTHOUSE, September 14.
TO THE EDITORS OP THE NEWS.
A severe illness of several days since my re?
turn from the low-country has prevented a
prompt reply to the communication in your
Issue of tbe 9th instant, over the signature of
Reuben Tomllnson. I have to regret, too,
that in the absence J rom Columbia of several
parties engaged in the campaign, my respoose
cannot be made as complete as tbe facts will
warrant. The supplement most appear here?
In the communication reference is made to.
me In these words: i
"Mr. Melton ls represented as saying at
"York ville that be had been told (and would
"give his authority if Mr. Tomiinson asked
"for it) that be (Tomllnson) had borrowed the
"money, or endorsed a note at the bank to
"get the money, which was used for the pur
"P?pe of passing the phosphate bill through.
. '"Ic reply I have to say that there is absolute
"ly not the shadow of truth In the state
It ls sufficient to say, as I do, that I have
not, at York ville or elsewhere, made any such
statement; nor bad I heard of such charge
against Mr. Tomllnson nulli it was staled In
his card. Possibly his actual knowledge of the
transaction may have suggested lt. It ls pro?
bable, however,.that be bas found lc necessary
to resort to that weakest of all lines of de?
fence, and has "put np a man of straw, to
knock lt down." He might as well have rep?
resented me as charging that he had "stolen a
horse or robbed a bank," and then proceeded
to deny lt.
What I did say at Yorkville and repeat in
Charleston ls this : When the phosphate bill,
was unexpectedly vetoed by the Governor, the
lobby-agent whom the friends of Vie measure
had employed to secure its passage by bribery,
found himself without sufficient funds to carry
the bill over the veto, and resorted to empty
promises. This form of bribery certain sena?
tors refused to accept; and Mr. Tomiinson, in
order to procure their votes, pledged to them his
personal faith that the bribes would be promptly
paid. That lie borrowed money, or endorsed
paper to this end, let me repeat, I have not
been informed, and I have never so charged.
It was distinctly announced Uiat the state?
ment was ' not made upon my personal re?
sponsibility, and that if Mr. Tomiinson should
deny it, I would cheerfully give the authority
upon which it was based. At the Yorkville
.meeting Mr. Corbin was present, and in be?
half of his candidate undertook to deny the
charge; whereupon Mr. F. L. Cardozo, Irom
whom the information came to me, assumed
?the^responsiblllty, and represented to the
meeting that he had lt from Mr. Tom nason
himself. When the statement shall be denied
by Mr. Tomllnson, If at all, he will have the
advantage of knowing whence lt came. But
I have every reason to believe that, when his
card was written, he knew the authority and
the exact purport of the charge against him
Apart lrom this direct testimony, the charge
derives probability from his connection with
the Boheme. I take it, Mr. Tomllnson will not
deny thar, he strenuously advocated the bill,
and used his position on the floor to promote
lt; that be was the mouthpiece of Governor
Scott's administration ia the House; and be?
cause the Governor dared to veto the bill, he
at once discontinued this relation; that he
knew the measure was secured by means of
direct and shameless bribery, thereby de?
bauching the representatives of the people,
and bringing reproach upon the Republican
party and npon the State; that coming lato
this State a poor young man, he nevertheless
became the owner of about two. hundred
shares, at fifty dollars cash per share, and that
he found abundant comfort, besides, in the
office of the treasurer and manager ol the
company, at a salary of four thousand dollars
per annum ! Between this and tho charge
Mr. Cardozo has made, there is not, I submit,
a lar remove* That "some of the most hon?
orable business men in Charleston" own stock
In toe company, and that under bis manage?
ment the dividends have not been remunera?
tive, does not affect the morality of the trans?
action. . v.
It was due to yon, gentlemen, as well as to
myself to make this reply, notwithstanding
the gratuitous allusions to myself personally,
contained in Mr. Tomlinsons card. It is one
of the evils which now beset us that weare
forced Into contact with men bred and train?
ed in that peculiar creed, which, while it per?
mits the most wanton attack, furnishes a
shield behind which to Bhrink from the re?
sponsibility of a gentleman.
Very respectfully yours,
SAM'L W. MELTON.

THE GRANT FAMTLT.
AToledoan Viaita the Long Branch Cot?
tage-Traveller'? Tales by Fred-Hie
Description of European Gambling
Hells and Turkish Harems.
[Correspondence of the Toledo (Ohio) Blade.]
LONG BRANCH, August 23.
It was your correspondent's pleasure, a
short time since, to spend an evening at the
President's. Fortunately there were no
formal visitors present, and the President's
family (except Neille and Ulysses Jr., who are
still absent in Europe) were seated on the
veranda, at the rear of the cottage, where
could be distinctly heard the monotonous
surging of the waves, as they break upon the
shore. General Grant sat on ono side of me
conversing with his neighbor, Mr. John F.
Henry, while on the other side sat Mrs. Grant
and Lieutenant Fred and a Mrs. Newman,
who is staying at the President's. A llttie
beyond, Mr,'. Grant's aged lather, Mr. Dent,
dozed in the Bolt light ot the waning moon.
Mrp. Grant never tires of hearing Fred relate
the scenes and incidents of his travels In
Europe with General Sherman.
'.Did you visit Nice ?" asked Mrs. Newman,
who has been In Europe herself, and has
visited many of the places where Fred bas
'?0, yes," said Fred, "I visited Nice, and
went into some of the gambling houses lhere.
Americans generally bet larger sums o? money
than people ot any other nation. I saw one
American, one evening, who bet an amount
eqnal to eight thousand dollars and won, and
then asked bow much money there was In ibe
bank; and, when told there was an amount
equal to thirty thousand dollars, be bet an
equal amouut against it, but our party did not
wait to see the result. The government oc?
casionally makes apparent efforts to suppress
gambllog, but, as lt is a very great source ot
revenue, they do not work very earnestly in
the matter. At another lime, I saw an
American and a Scotchman, who were both
very Hight,' and who said ihey would go into
one of the banks and break lt. They were as
good as their word, and then they went out
to get a drink, and, in the meanwhile, the 1
bann got started again, and they went back
and broke lt a second time; and then they 1
went out for another drink, and went back
and broke the bank a third lime."
'.Oh, ob !" said Mrs. Grant, who seemed to
think this story smacked a little too much of
the sea to be strictly true.
"It's a fact," said Fred. "They broke the
bink three times."
Tuen Mrs. Newman related some experience 1
of hers, giving an account of atrip in one ol
those little European steamers, when she was
thrown out of an upper berth in her state-room
during a rough sea. i
"Tell us some more of what you saw," said 1
Mrs. Grant. "Tell us what you saw In 1
"What about the harems ?" I asked.
"The harems," Bald Fred, "are the same as
our 'household;' that Is, they comprise all the '
members of the family, and all the servants, i
?fcc. Every Turkish house ls divided Into two I
parts-that which ls devoted to the harem or 1
family, and which ls held sacred, no stranger 1
being allowed te enier lt; and the other part
of the howe ls devoted to the reception of <
visitors. Of course we could not visit that I
part of the house devoted to the harems, ex- '
cept In one or two Instances, when the ocou- 1
pants were all taken out and we were only <
allowed to see the empty rooms." . '
Mrs. Grant has never visited Europe, but
she has a most intense desire to do so. She
kept continually asking Fred to tell what he
f aw, and Fred, with a good nature which was ,
pleasant to eee, and wulch spoke volumes for .
ms Allai regard, complied pleasantly and .
Presently Jesse Grant came In and made one ,
more of the family group. Mr. Grant told him .
that Borne acquaintances ot his were going to .
Lehtgh to attend Behool
"Lehigh, Pa ?" he asked. ;
"Well, I want to goto boarding-school, too. !
Fred and Neille and Ulysses have ail been to ,
boarding-school, and I want to go, too. You ,
went lo ooarding-Bchool, didn't you, ma?"
"Yes. tor seven years," Bald Mrs. Grant.
I asked Fred if he went down about the ho?
tels ul ten. i
"Not otton," said he. "They stare at a fei- i
low BO I didn't like it. I sometimes go down
the avenue for a drive, though." <
I asked Mrs. Grant when she expected her J
daughter to return. I
"About t he first of October," said she. i
"I suppose she enjoyed her visit to the i
Queen very much ?" i
"Yes. both her visit to the Queen of England
and to Madame Theirs, wile of the President !
I asked the President how much longer he
would probably remain at the Branch, and he
"Till about the Hst of September. The
White House ls undergoing repairs. They are
rerooflng it, and, as the copper has to be rolled
out as wanted, lt ls a slow process."
The President has two large Newfoundland
dogs, which are weekly caricatured In Frank
Leslie's paper as bull-pups. The stables be- 1
longing to the President's cottage are directly
In front of his house, at the roadside, and
almost entirely hidden by the surrounding
shrubbery. He has two colored atlendants,
one of whom is driver and the other acisas
footman, and both wear a livery of white, and
sit tonet tier on the driver's box when the car?
riage ls dr .ven out.
THE NORTH CAROLINA ELECTION.
A Contest Probable.
It appears from a published letter from
Judge A. S. Merri mon, late Democratic Con.
ser va tl ve candidate for Governor of North
Carolina, that he will contest the election li
Bulli clent evidence of fraud ls collected, ot
which he seems to entertain no doubt. Judge
Merri mon says:
I am satisfied, by a great variety of facts
and circumstances that have come to my
knowledge, and by Incontrovertible evidence
already in the possession of the executive
committee, that enormous frauds were perpe?
trated at the election, and that great numbers
o? Illegal vol es were cast against me and the
Other candidates associated with me ou the
Democratic Conservative ticket tor Slate
offices. I sincerely believe that we each re?
ceived a majority ol the lawlul votes cast; but
whether those who perpetrated these frauds,
directly and Indirectly, did it so arti olly as to
avoid complete legal detection remain to be
If it turna out npon the examination now
being made by my friends through the ex?
ecutive committees, that substantial ground,
for contest can be established, I will contest
the eleciloo and vindicate the rights of the
people, and, as I believe, the.best interests ot
the State and country bv so doing, to the ut?
most ol my capacity and to the last extremty.

[Correspondence of the New York Herald.]
PARIS, August 22.
A tall, noble-looking old man; a broad, high,
smooth forehead; long ?bite hair; dark, re?
flective blue eyes; a rosy, healthy complexion;
a bead Michael Angelo would have delighted
In; a figure slightly stooping when in repose,
but erect aud straight as an arrow when ani?
mated; with this all the signB and character?
istics of a bale and hearty old age-such is
Monseigneur Dupanloup, bishop of Orleans,
member of the National Assembly and the
best of France's living orators. I think Mon?
seigneur Dupanloup ls one of thc few great
meu ot France In whom one is not
disappointed upon seeing him for the first
time. We Americans, who are accustomed
In our statesmen to see such heads as those o?
Washington, Jefferson, Webster, Clay and
Douglas, experience generally a teeling of
disappointment upon being brought lace to
iace wltb the men-who sway and h uve swayed
i he destinies of France. And I speak not only
of the present, but of the past. From Louis
XIV down to M. Thiers himself, including all
Lue so-called giants ol ihe French revolution
Marat, Robespierre and the rest of them-to
such mosquitoes as the virulent Roche fort,
Ihe weeping Jules Favre, the whluing Jules
Simon ot fie 4ih of September, there may be
observed lo all of them a certain common
place, ordinury look, a certain absence of per?
sonal Impressiveness, ol those marks which
serve to di3iingulati a man from the crowd, :
und which would cause him to be singled out ,
among thousands. . I (
MONSIEQNEUll DOPANLOUP !
Is, however, an exceptional Frenchman tn 1
this respect; for his air und bearing are full ol I 1
dignity aud his general appearance that of al
king In the lolellecluul world. He is living j
In a very pretty villa near Versailles, and
thither I went to see him. It ls a neat little
country house or cottage, delightfully situated I
In the middle of a large park, with a smooth?
ly Bhorn lawn before the door, through which 1
winds a carriage way. It was snout six
o'clock in the evening when I drove up to the 11
iron gate in iront ol the place, and almost the 11
drat objeot which attracted my attention WUB '
Monseigneur himself, walking slowly up and (
down an avenue, which was rendered 11
delightfully cool and shady by the thick I '
overhanging branches of the trees tn which
the place ls embowered, making, with his tine, J
large head, which was bared to the co?i alr~of I '
the evening, his long white hair, and his calm, j
thoughtful lace, a picture that would have de
lighted an artist. I sent in my curd and was
immediately invited to walk lu. He received
me without returning to the house, and con?
tinued his promenade during the conversation
which followed, stopping and standing still oe-1 '
zaslonally when becoming animated or par- I '
Ocularly Interested In anything I was telling I !
lil m. The conversation naturally turned upou I
the present condition ot France, and in reply 11
:o my question as to his Impressions regarding !
the situation, he said: !
THE SITUATION IN FRANCE, j
"Ah, the situation is bad enough. The I
country is in a very perilous position, from I
?Vilich lt can oe extricated only with extreme I

THIERS AND THE LEGISLATURE. I ;
Correspoudent. To whom may this raison- '
ierslandtog between M. Thiers and the As- I
aerably be principally attributed ?
Monseigneur Dupanloup. To M. Thiers, un-1 !
doubtedly. He mlgnt govern with the ma-1
lorlty, lt ne would do so, but he will not. Aud 1j
IQ order to carry ont his peculiar Ideas he
seeks the support ol the Lek, a support he can
obtain by showing Hie least Inclination to SHS- I
lain the Republlo. The majority are willing I
to accept and maintain the partie de Bordeaux \
in its integrity; but they had it difficult to
follow M. Tuieis through all ol hin absurd and I
impossible Ideas wita regard to finance, pro-I
lection and the reorganization of the army..I !
Il they reiuse to submit blludly to everything
he demande, and his demands are monstrous,
he threatens lo go entirely over to the Left,
and anarchy will be the result. If they sub-1
mit, they bad belter have the Empire at once. I j
NAPOLEON m WAS LESS ARBITRARY,
and had, at least, very advanced views with i
regard to commerce and free trade.
Correspondent. Is M. Thiers, then, so des-1 >
potlc ? '
Monseigneur Dupanloup. Why, Ihe Empire i
WU8 nothing to i lui. He wishes to do every-11
thlug; his ideas must be accepted on every
Bubjeot, his will obeyed as law. We have only
exchanged one master lor another, and we I
certainly have not profited by the exchange. 11
It ls the personal power, the absolutism ol me I
Emplie, in a less enlightened form.
WHY HE IS NOT DEPOSED.
Correspondent. But lt appears to me that I
the Right have a majority lu the Assembly.
Why do they sot depose M. Thiers and put I
some one In his place who would govern an-1
cording to their wishes ? -.
Monseigneur Dupanloup. No; the composi?
tion of tue Assembiy ls euch that there is no
majority without the Left Centre, and this
division of the Assembly, consisting of ubuut
one hundred aud titty members, have the
most unlimited confidence in M. Thiers, and,
while being really monarchical In sentiment,
are willing, nevertheless, io accept ihe Repub?
lic, lt he should decide in favor of lt. They I
are perfectly honest, well-meaning people,
but have no very fixed ideas or principles,
and are, therefore, very wavering, uncertain j
und not to be relied upon. It is thia faction
ol' the Assembly that makes M. Thiers's post-1
THE LEFT CENTRE.
Correspondent. But lithe Left Centre are I
really monarchical, can they not be induced
to rally to whatever leader the Right may
Choc se ?
Monseigneur Dupanloup. The truth ls that
just now there is no man on wiiom the Right
can unite. Since the Count de Cuambord's
absurd refusal to accept ihe leadership and be
reconciled lo his cousins who have likewise
shown themselves to be Impracticable by re?
fusing lo make sufliclent advances towards
effecting a reconciliation, the Right really
have m> candidate. They, Cbambord and the
younger branch ot the family have both ren?
dered themselves for the moment ltnpos-1
Correspondent. The position Is certainly a
complicated one. I do not, lor my part, see
any way out of ihe difficulty.
POT M'MAHON IN HIS PLACE.
Monseigneur Dupanloup. Yes, t here in one
way. If M. Thiers should resign or die we I
mluht put Marshal McMahon In hts plac?.
Correspondent. But he has, I believe, no
political experience, and might prove incapa?
ble of directing ihe multifarious affilrs of ihe
Monseigneur Dupanloup. He ls perfectly j
capable, but, not belog a skilful politician like
M. Thier?, he would not try io oppose the will
of the Assembly; he would not try to force
upon them bia Ideas, but he would govern ac?
cording to the wishes of the country.
Correspondent. Do you think a majority ol
the Assembly could be brought to accept his
nomination; and, if they did, would the minor?
ity submit to the choice !
Monseigneur Dupanloup. In case of the re?
signation or death of M. Thiers the majority
would be undoubtedly In favor of McMahon.
As to the minority they would be compelled to
submit. He has the army on his side.
Correspondent. Why do you apprehend so
much danger lrom M. Thiers governing with
the Left ? Have yon not confidence in his
Monseigneur Dupanloup. I bave all confi?
dence In hlB patriotism,' but none In his views. |
Besides, be ls deceiving himself. He thinks
be can gain the confidence of the Left and be?
come their leader. Never was there a greater
mistake. Ifthe|Lelt ever get into power li.
Thiers will be put aside for be no more really
represents the Left than he does the Bight.
OAMBETTTA WILL KKPLACK BTU.
But the French always go to extremes, and
even Gambetta will not be advanced enough
for them. The Left Centre, now so mode?
rate, will become rouge, and the Republic will
drift into the Coramnue, with all its horrors.
And that means civil war, the reoccupation of
country by the Prussians, bankruptcy and
ruin. And I do not ape bow to avoid lt ex?
cept by openly declaring war against M.
Thier?, which would orlng about a crisis and
a train of consequences equally disastrous.

THE EPICENE SEX.
[From the Saturday Review.]
The latest development of the Impulses
ivhich animale the epicene sex bas taken Its
expression in alter-dinner oratory. It we
vere as malicious to women as those whose
iollles we rebuke would have the world be
ieve, we should encourage ihem to fight it
Mit with womanly modesty and the world's
esteem on this line. Their worst enemies
could not wish to see them inflict on them?
selves a greater annoyance than the obliga
lon of getting on their legs alter the cheese
nas been removed, to lum ou a stream of ver?
sal Insipidity for- a quarter ot an hour at a
stretch. Noue bul. men wbo have something
o say on tbe subject that may be la hana,
ind so are glad oi every opportunity no mat?
ter how unsatisfactory, or men who are eaten
np with vanity, take pleasure JU speechifying
liter dinner. Its uselessness ls apparent; Us
nock hilarity ls ghastly; even at political
"bauquets," when words are supposed to have
lome deep meaning, we get very little reality
In lt; while all the funny part ol the business
is ol' the dreariest comedy, the most dis?
tracting pretence imaginable. If anything
were wanting "to i>how how much vanity
prompts a certain class ol womeu in their
ways und works, and how tremendous their
passion tor notoriety and personal display, lt
would be ibis a.-sumptlon of the functions ol
Lbe poBt-prandial orator. Indeed, they have
taken greatly ol late to public speaking all
round; and some among them seem only easy
when they are standing before a crowd to be
admired If they are pretty, applauded If they
are pert, and, lu an v case, the centre ot attrac?
tion for the moment. We do not look forward
with pleasure to the time when ladles will rise
Lifter their champagne and port, with Hushed
cheeks und ejes more bright limn beautiful,
steadying themselves adroitly against the back
of their cnalrs, and rolling out eitber those in?
terminable periods with no nominatives and
no climax, under which we have all so often
suffered, or spasmodically Jerking torin a lew
unconnected sentences ot which the sole merit
ls their brevity. In the beginning or things,
when the wedge has to be Introduced, only
the best of its kind puts itself forward, and
doubtless the ladles who have already varied
the dull routine of alter-dinner oratory
by their livelier utterances, have done the
thing comparatively well, and avoided a break?
down; but we own that we tremble at the
thought of the flood of feminine eloquence
which will be let loose ir the fashion spreads.
Fancy the heavy British matron rearing her
ample shoulders above the board, as shela} s
down the law on the duties of men towards
women-especially sons-lndfcw- and the ad?
vantage to all concerned if wives are liberally
dealt wtth in the maller of housekeeping mo?
ney, and let to go their own without martial
hindrance. Or think of tho woman's rights
woman with her hybrid costume and lier hard
face, showing society how lt can be saved
from destruction only by throwing the balance
of power Into the hands ol women, and
swamping that rude, rough, masculine ele?
ment which has so long mismanaged matters
by the nobler and brighter Instincts of the op?
pressed sex. Or even think ot' the coquettish
and alluring little woman getting up be?
fore a crowd of men and firing off the
neatest and smartest park of verbal ar?
tillery possible-every shot of which tells
and is applauded to the echo. How will
men take it ? For ourselves, having too sin?
cere a respect for women as they ought lo be,
and as nature meant them to be, we do not
wish to se them turned into social bufloong,ttie
mark for Jeering comments and angry hisses
when what they say displeases their hearers,
and told to "sit down" and "shut up," with
entreaties to some strong man to "take them
out, ot Lhat and carry them home to the nurse?
ry," by a hundred voices roughened with
drink and shouting. But if women expect
that hostile feelings and opinions will bc
tamed or altogether supressed in their honor
because they choose to thrust themselves
where thev have no business, they will find
out their mistake perhaps when too late. If
they abandon their sale cover and come out
Into the open, they must look lo be hit Just
like the rest. We cannot too often repeat that
if they will mingle in the specialties of men's
lives they must put up with men's treatment,
and not cry .out when they are struck home.
In deference to them, plain-speaking bas
been banished from the drawing rooms
of society; but lt is too much to expect
men to alt under heavy boredom or fatuous
gabble without, wincing, and lt is childish to
ask us to make a free gift ot our truth and
Ume to women who outrage one and waste
the other. On the other hand, the cheers that
would follow If they hit the humor of the hour,
or ii, being specially pretty or specially smart,
they afforded so much more excitement to the
guests, would, to our minds, be Just as offen?
sive as the rougher trutb, and, perhaps, more
so. The leering approbation ot men never
over-nice in thought and now heated with
wine, such as are always to be found at public
dinners, is an infliction from which we should
have imagined any woman with purity oi
self-respect would shrink with shame and dis?
may. But women who take to aiter-dlnnei
speeches cannot expect to be lastidious.
THE DAMAGE TO COTTON.
THE SEPTEMBER REPORT OF THE
Detailed Exblblt of the Injury by Cat?
erpillar and Drought In the Several
WASHINGTON, D. C., September 17.
The September report of the statistics of the
department of agriculture Indicates a decline
In the cotton crop prospect during the past
month In consequence of the presence of the
cotton caterpillar in portions of Georgia, Flori?
da, Alabama, Mississippi and Lom.-i.iua. una ?
drought of moderate severity lu Texas, Arkan?
sas and Tennessee. The condition of the crop,
as shown by the average of returns received, is
as follows: Virginia 97, North Carolina 101,
South Carolina 95, Georgia 9C, Florida; 92,
Alabama 88, Mississippi 90, Louisiana 86,
Texas 94, Arkansas 78, Tennessee 92. Thus
the prospect throughout the entire Cotton
States, which favored a yield Ave per cent.,
larger than un average product, promises at
the present time about ten per cent, less than |
anaveraz?. The Increase of acreage over
last year and the unfavorable character of |
the season of 1871, si iii point to a material In?
crease In the total crop of 1872, while the poe- ?
sible extension of insect ravages or the early
occurrence of frost may modify the present
Tue only counties reporting cotton lo Vir
gi nia are Northampton, Southampton, Klag
and Queen, Chesterfield, Greenville and Pat?
rick, and the average of condition has de?
clined from 101 In August to 97 in September.
Returns from thirty eight counties in North
Carolina average 101 in September, against
97 in August. Mecklenburg holds Its August
estimate of 125, and Hdgecomb han advanced
from 76 to 100. Twelve reports are below 100.
No material loss from insects ls reported.
The average of condition In South Carolina'!
has fallen trom 98 in Angust to 95 in Septem?
ber. Darlington, Barnwell, Edgefleld and
Fairfield Counties, which together produced:|
90,000 bales of cotton ol the crop of 1869,
average 96, Darlington and Fairfield standing
better than in August: Richland, reporting.']
100 In August, has been visited by the cater |
pillar and reduces the estimate to 80.
In August only twelve counties of Georgia
of Bixty reported returned condition lesa than, j
100, and the general average was 104. In!
September lt is placedt at 96. Insect ravages
are becoming serious In several counties, es?
pecially Lee, Twlggs, Spaulding, Schley, Bald-:|
win and Marlon.
The decline during the past month In Flori?
da has been from 96 to 92. The caterpillar ap-1
peared in Suwannee as early os July 15th, and;
divested ol leaves whole fields before August
15th. Leon, Jeffersen, Madison, Gadsden^
and Taylor bave also been visited.
Only four counties in Alabama made returns I
below 100 in August, the general average.!
being 107. Two-thirds of the present returns f
are below 100, thereby two counties averag?
ing 88. Ot the prominent counties all show all
decline-Russell fron 102 to 97 and Marengo
from 90 to 70. Mente ornery indicates an ad-1
vance from 105 to IK1.. Two-thirds of the re- '
turns Include a reference to insect ravages.
The general average of Mississippi returns |
has fallen since the August report from 112 to
90. Warren has declined (rom 110 to 107.
Madison Irom 105 to 77, Hinds from 100 to 60.
Three-fourths of the returns are below KIO J
Insect depredations are serious In many
The average for Louisiana was 101 in Au?
gust, in September 8C. In Caddo, the decline
is from 90 to 50; from 100 lo 75 lu Concordia;
from 95 to 90 in Claiborne; while in Madison,
a prominent parish, un advance from 120 to
190 ls reported. The caterpillar has been de?
structive In ?anglpohoa, Red River, St. Lan?
dry and Concordia.
Drought bas shortened the Texas crop, aud
reduced thu average of the returns of cou di- j
tion from 103 to 94. Few reports of the pres?
ence ot Insects are received.
The average o? Ar ?meas returns has been
decreased from 96 to 78, mainly by dry
In Tennessee, drought bas also been Injuri?
ous, reducing the average from 104 to 92.
The worms and the young bolls of tho top
crop are rapidly fulling off, threatening a
material reduction ot the crop.

ENGLAND'S ROAST BEEF_While the high
price ot meat In England is 'creating wide?
spread discontent, anet the provincial butch?
ers are clamoring for free trade In the foreign
cattle, lt appears probable that importations
into England from the continent must be
stopped altogether, in consequence of an ex?
traordinary outbreak of the cattle plague in
continental countries. It ls Bald that ot late
every cargo of cattle from Russia has Included
diseased animals. Large numbers of Infected
cattle have been discovered among those late?
ly landed irom Germany, and carcasses of dis?
eased animals are frequently washed ashore
on the coast, having been thrown overboard
from ships destined for English ports. It IE
considered essential to the safety of Engllst
herds that rigid restrictions should be placed
on importations of live stock under the con
ditton of affairs, and this will tend to still furth?
er Increase the prl oe of animal food.
