That the astertic-ds of the republi? can press of the North, previous to the recent election, to the effect that the so called Spanish "war'' had entirely ob? literated the sectional line and made the people of both sections of this coun? try one in feeling as in name, were ut? tered for the deliberate purpose of affecting that election, is proved by the fact that the campaign being over, and their object having been achieved, the attempt of the people of the Carolinas to relieve themselves of ne? gro rule has been seized upoc by the whole republican press, from Washing? ton to BostOD, and along the entire northern boundary of the country, as a tit occasion for a diapason of abuse ol the people of the South, to whose al? leged hatred for those of the Nortb,and for the negroes, whose freedom the latter secured, they ascribe that and all other attempts to obtain and main ta;u a white man's government iu this section. From the time the sectional line was first drawn, the hatred in it wss engendered and has always beeu pro? moted in the North, and if Northern people manifest hate for those upon whom they have to depend for their labor, certainly those of the South h ive too much common sees? to do likewise. The abolitionists used to say that Southern men maltreated and injured their slaves, though no sane msn depreciates the value of his own prop? erty: and just as absurd is it to say that the people of the South desire to pro? voke the animosity of those upou whom they have to rely for most of their labor. The public statement is made that though General Miles now says ho was opposed to the hurried and unprepared manner iu which the invasion of Cuba acd Porto Rica was made, he advised ev.?n greater hurry than was possible, and that he did, is proved by his own orders to that effect, which he failed 10 mention in his report, but which are now on tile at the War Department. The suppression of the truth, for a purely selfish object, has always been considered as bad as a falsehood. But in view of the GeDeraFs treatment of President Davis when confined in Fort? ress Monroe, hardly anything that be might do would be surprising. The South, as always has been the case, supplies the national democratic party with all its really effective strength. The cardiual principle ol democracy is the rule of the majority. Therefore the will of the South should be potential in the next national demo? cratic convention, and the sooner the Northern democrats become impressed with this idea,the better for all concern? ed. The icdividual Southern States can take care of themselves, but if the Northern democrats want their party to have control of the whole couotry, they must stand with the South and endorse and support democratic prin? ciples and policies. Gkn. Gomez - insists upon holding this country to the terms upon which it interfered with him in his rebellion against the legitimate government of Cuba, and upon the immediate freedom and independence of that island, acd, by no means unnaturally, opposes its annexation to the United State?, and all who favor such annexation. He has therefore removed all such, waetber natives or Americans, from positions in bis command. He is for free Cuba, and wants everybodj' to know he is, and few people familiar with human nature blame him. DAUGHTERS OF THE CONFED? ERACY. At Hot Springs, Ark., on Saturday the last day's session of the convention of the Uaited Daughters of the Con? federacy was devoted to a discussion of the amendments to the by-laws aud to the election of officers.

A letter from Mrs. Jefferson Davis, statiug that she would prepare a biography of her daughter, Miss Winnie Davis, if the Daughters of the Confederacy would agree to handle and dispose of the book anddevote the proceeds to a mouument to Miss Davis's memory was read. A motion prevailed that Mrs. Davis be in? structed that the Daughters of the na tioual chapter would donate $100 to? ward the monument fund aod that the organization generally would raise the balance required for such a monument but that they would aell ;the biography if Mrs. Davis would accept the proce?d"s 2or her individual benefit.

In tbe discussion over the North and South Carolina matters in the cabinet on Friday there was more or less talk on the advisability of another federal election law, the statutes covering such sections having all been repealed dur? ing the second administration of Mr. Cleveland.

The cibinet held a special session Saturday night at which instructions understood to be of a pes Live character bearing on the Philippine question, were drafted for dispatch to the Ameri? can minister, in Paris. These instruc tions were the outcome of conference held early in tho day and instruct the American representatives to admit of no further discussion as to the right to consider the disposition of the islands, and state that on that point the instruc? tions already sent must stand, the only matter for discussion from the Ameri? can view being the manner of giving over the islands. It is believed in Washington that this will bring the Spaniards to a speedy set? tlement, and that they will not break off the negotiations, as they have uu officially talked of doing, but that they will acceede to the demands of the United States. If the Spaniards should, however, break off the negotiations, Spain would not be able to resume hos tilities, and would not be able to pre? vent our taking the Philippines without any compensation whatever. A dispatch from Paris says: The im? pression exists here that tbe Span? ish peace commissioners will not con? sent to a treaty which the American CDmmissioners will be allowed to be signed by their government. It seems iilmost possible, also, that in the pita t?le pressure to which the Spanish com? missioners are subjected between their large creditors, who are on the spot watching them, and the stern attitude of the United States, the Spaniards may abandon their efforts and leave tbe?wo forces to confront each other.

Except in the unlooked-for event of a recurrence of the race trouble io the Carolinas,- it is improbable that the government will interfere by force or otherwise. The attorney general has had another conference with the Presi? dent io regard to the question, and the conclusion was reached that as the South Carolina demonstrations were not directed against the collector of customs at Charleston in the perform? ance of his duties as such, the govern? ment had no authority under the con? stitution or laws to exercise its federal authority. Collector Tolbert was shot while away from ids home and on bus? iness entirely disconnected from that of his office; in fact, he was engaged in whnt has been termed "offensive parti? sanship." To hold that the collector'. person is sacred even when bo is inter? fering in county political disputes which has no connection with his office would be absurd. As to North Caro? lina the situation is now quiet and there is no cause for interference. It is being developed that the negroes wero in many cases incited to lawless? ness by white republicans, and the for? mer now realize that they have been misled. Thanks were given in the Wilmington pulpits yesterday for the great deliverance, aDd some of the ministers regard the action of the whites last week as a stern necessity.

There were five distinct pieces of substance, resembling iron, that went blazing through the heavens about 11 o'clock. In the transit the noi-:e made resembled skyrockets shooting through the air. When the earth was struck there was an awful s;iakioiz. The house of a family named Henderson, living about ten miles east of the town, was struck by a big piece of the iron. It crashed through the roof and killed two children who were in the kitchen. Other meteors fell in the nigh grass and started prairie fires, which were put out after much difiL culty. The Markets.
