HEAVY GltAIX CROPS.
From the Macon, Ga., Telegraph, March 15.
Undoubtedly there will be a heavy dimi
nution in tlie cotton area planted this
spring. One of the correspondents of the
Agricultural Bureau tells us that he shall
report for Twists countv a diminution of
from a quarter to a third. Nearly all the
planters in that county report one-third in
cotton and two-thirds in grain, instead of
vice versa, which was the almost universal
con Hi lion mere last year. .A ncavv acre
age in small grain is also universal, and it
is reported to lie verv promising. Oa!s will
be abuiulnit in Georgia by Ma, and we
trust that September will show the State
once more independent of Western com
supplies and on tlie economical turnpike to
prosperous fortunes again. And we shall
not be greatly surprised if planters find
when harvests arc all gathered that thoush
nicy nave plenty oi gram tne cotton pro-
ltiet is not greatly snort ot last year. Given
a favorable year and the falling oil' is not
going to be stupendous.

Mr. Logan referred to the speech of the
Senator from Missouri, (Mr. Scliurz.) He
said the Senator imagines himself in Lon
don or New Yoik, and forgets he claims
to be from Missouri. He seems to imagine
banks and a clearing house at even village
and cross roads in tne West. He tells us
at one time that money will seek the best
market; at another the East is already
burdened with excess, lie argued if we
increase the volume of currency that it will
now irom tlie south! and west. He says.
also, if we authorize !orth Carolina to
establish banks, the more she puts in ope
ration tne less currency she will have in
circulation. In other words, he says to the

manufactures and wealth is pernicious to

a remarkable similarity between the argu
ments aud illustrations of the Senator from
Missouri and those of Eastern capitalists.
Every plan offered by those opposed to the
increase ot currency embraces that of re
tiring greenbacks, which do not bear inter

bearing bonds payable in gold without the
power of reconversion into greenbacks,
so as to keep them in circulation, thereby
imposing upon the necks of the people au

WHY THE BED SEA IS CALLED
A question that has puzzled scholars
found a solution, some time since, m
the observation of an American subma
rine diver. Smith's "Bible Dictionary"
discusses learnedly the name of the
Red Sea. The "Dictionary" surmises
that the name was derived from the
red western mountains, red coral zoo-
phites, etc., and appears to .ive little
weight to the real and natural reason
which came under our American notice.
On one occasion the diver observed,
while nnder sea, that the curious wav
erinc shadows, which cross the lustrous,
golden floor, like Fraucnhofer's lines on
the spectrum, began to change and lose
themselves. A purple glory of inter
mingled colors darkened the violent
curtains of the sea-chambers, redening
all glints and tinges with an angry fire.
nstead of that lustrous, golden nrma-
ment, the thallasphere darkened to
crimson and opal. The walls grew
purple, the floor as red as bloud; the
deep itself was purpiea with tne venous
hue of deoxidized life-currents. The
view on the surface was even more
magnificent. The sea at first assumed
the light, tawny, or yellowish red of
sherry wine. Anon, the wine-color
grew indistinct with richer radiance,
as far as the eye could see, and flashing
in the ciTstaline splendor ot tne Ara
bian sun, was glorious as the sea of
rose. The dusky red sandstone hills,
with a border of white sand, and green
and flowered foliage, like an elaborately
wrought cup of Bohemian glass en
ameled with brilliant flowers, held the
sparklinc liquid petals of that rosy sea.
The surface, on examination, proved
to be covered with a thin brick-dust
nyer of infusoria, slightly tinged with
orange. Placed on awhitcgiass Douie,
this changed into a deep vioiet, Dut tne
wide surface of the external sea was of
that magnificent and brilliant rose
color. Itwas a new and pleasingexam-
ple to the lustrous, ever-varying beauty
of the ocean world. It was caused by
diatomacea?, minute alga?, which under
the microscope revealed delicate threads
gathered in tiny bundles, and containing-
rings, blood disks, of that curious
coloring matter in tiny tubes. i

An Entire Diode Endangered.
At 10:45 last night fire was discovered
issuing from the roof of the three story
building on the comer of Church and Col
lege, occupied as a warehouse by the Ten
nessee Chair Manufactory. The fire first
made its appearance at tbe southeast cor
ner of the building, in a room used for up
holstering purposes, which necessitates tlie
use of oils and varnish, and it is supposed
the fire wa3 caused by spontaneous com
bustion. All the fire engines were prompt in an
swering the alarm, as wa3 also the Hook
and Ladder company. The engines were
distributed as follows: Hamilton at the
corner of Union and College, Stockcll at
the corner of College and Church, the
Eclipse at the corner of Church and Market
and the Deluge on Market about a third of
the distance from Church towards Broad.
The Hamilton and Stockcll played on the
front of the building, the latter throwing
two streams. The hose from the Deluge
was carried up the alley on tbe east side of
the building, while that from the .hclipse
was carried up to the top of Dickel & Co.'s
building on the comer of Market and
The building was
STORED WITH FURNITURE
from basement to garret, the stock being
valued at 540,000, and in spite of all that
could bo done, the flames spread rapidly,
and for more than an hour it was feared
that the entire block would be destroyed.
This fear gathered strength from the knowl
edge that the immense building adjoining
on the cast and occupied by Dickel & Co.,
was filled with whisky.
At lialf past eleven the furniture estab
lishment of Greenfield, Atwell & Sneed,
immediately north of the Tennessee Chair
Factory ware-rooms caught fire, and in hall
an hour the stock, valued at Slisum', was
entirely destroyed. The mattreess factory
of Ed. H. Miller, which adjoined Green
field, Atwell & Sneed's, theu caught and
was soon destroyed, nothing whatever being
saved from any of the tliree establishments.
At 12 o clock a portion of the
of the Cliair Factor warerooms fell out
into the street, and a few moments later the
West wall of the same buildingfellout into
College street. Then the comer between
these two breaks gave way and fell with a
great crash, the flames shooting upward in
Immense volumes after each giving way of
The streets for several squares around
were packed with spectators, hundreds of
men liaving left the various balls being
given by the Irish societies. Many of tbe
spectators assisted in carrying goods from
BLOOMTnALL'S CHINA STORE,
which joined Miller's mattress factory, as it
was thought tliat this building woidd also
catch fire, but fortunately it did not.
As this article is being written, at one
o'clock this morning, the flames begiu to
show signs of being subdued, after being
played upon by five three inch streams for
over two hours.
During the early part of the fire the
Deluge Engine did not work properly, for
some reason, but finally settled down to
Messrs. Greenfield, Atwell & Sneed had
been reciving goods for several days, and
but yesterday had received a large shipment
of fine furniture. Mr. Atwell lias been
usiug a room in the upper part of their
store for a sleeping apartment, but had
gone to the Commercial last night to sleep
with a brother. All his personal effects,
among which was a new suit of clothes
purchased last week, were m this room and
were all consumed.
Messrs. Greenfield & Sneed were present
from soon after the discovery of the tire,
but after the fact that their establishment
was endangered became known, it was im
possible to remove any of their stock.

which Ross Gale and Thomas were agents,
$2,000 in the State, of "Nashville, and $$,000
in vanous other companies.
The entire amount of damage cannot be
much less than $100,000, and it is entirely
owing to the untiring exertions ot the i ire
Department that the entire block was not
destroyed, and the wind was blowing in
exactly the right direction to bring about
that result. The lire was one ot unusual
fierceness while it raged, and it seemed to
be almost impossible to gain upon it.
Mr. Ewing resides six miles from the
city, and probably did not hear of his loss
until Ibis morning. He lias been very
unfortunate in this line, having been
burned out of his business house a year or
two ago. Greenfield, Atwell & bueed lose
every dollar they have in the world by the
burning of their establishment, with the ex
ception of tlie amount they will recover
on insurance, as all their means was
invested in their business. They were do
ing a large business at this time, and had
just laid in the finest stock of furniture
they ever liad.
This fire is by far- the most extensive
Nashville lias witnessed for many years,
and, if the alleged origin of the flames is a
tnie one, it should serve as a warning to
all persons who use oils and woolen rags.

A BOLD CHALLENGE.
George Treat Offcw to Knit Thnrt
Stevens Ajraiust Any Other Horse
in the "World for 10,000.
From the San Francisco Chronicle, March 3.
There has been more or less talk in
horse circles since the late four-mile-and-rcpeat
rnnning race at the Ocean
Yiew Park for 20,000, in regard to the
merits of the horses engaged in that
exciting contest. Some parties have
contended that Joe Daniels -was the
best horse in the race, while others are
of the opinion that True Blue could
have beaten both Thad Stevens and
Daniels if he had not met -with the un
fortunate accident which has probably
crippled him for life. Old Thad's
friends, notwithstanding all thatha3
been said in praise of other horses,
think he is still the best horse in the
country, and among them none are
more sanguine of this than George
Treat, his owner. As an evidence of
his belief in the old favorite, he author
ized a Chronicle reporter yesterday to
make the following challenge to the

Stevens against any other horse, mare
or gelding in the United States or the
world, a race of four miles and repeat,

3Ir. Treat also throws out the follow
ing banter: He will match a horse of
his for 5,000 against 25,000, that he
will beat the best recorded time ever
made in the United States by any run
ning horse, to rulefrom one mile to
four miles. The parties accepting this
proposition can name the race to be

MUKDEi: OP THE IAXOCEXTS.
Professor Chandler, in a recent lecture in
New York on Health and Health La-.V3,
makes the following statements:
The lecturer, then went into a compre
hensive explanation of the duration of hu
man life, and the causes leading to the pre
mature cessation of life through the want
of a proper supply of air and water. Even
under the most favorable circumstances the
organism wears out. If it is well used it
should last, on a average, three score and
ten years, but it does not. Dr. Playfair,
as shown in the statistics of Liverpoc!,
found in the case of the gentry the best
fed, clothed and housed that the average
duration of life was forty-three years; m
flie case of the tradesmen, nineteen years;
and laborers, sixteen, tlie average being
only twenty years. That is, the human
organism is so poorly protected against
causes of death that it averages to sustain
itself only twenty years. In studying
sanitary questions, one-of the first points is
to get at the facts, and for this reason what
ore called vital statistics are carefully col
lected, calculated and studied, in onler to
ascertain the facts connected with death
In 1872 tbe number of deatlis in Now
York was over 32,000 in a population of
1,000,000, or, as it is techically spoken tf,
32 per cent, in the thousand. It is import
ant to know how this death rate is distr.-but-d
among the ages, as it is the first poiut
in determining how to prevent death, and
we find to our horror that nearly one-half
the deaths are of children less than fiva
years old, showing that the causes lcadir'j
to this great death rate are dependent not;
so much on the action of persons them3ehes
as of those who should care for them. D -tween
the ages of five and twenty 12 J per
cent, more die, so that before reaching man
hood 02 per cent, of our population dies.
For the remaining period It is distribute 1
more equally: from twenty to twenty-Ik
about 5 per cent.; from twenty-five to Unity,
5 per cent.; from thirty to thirty-five, about
5 per cent.; from Unity-five to forty, a little
over 4 per cent.; from forty to forty-five, a
little less than 4 per cent.;ferty-flve to fifty,
3 per cent.; from fifty to filly-five, the per
centage is 2 1; from fifty-five to sixty, 2;
from sixty to seventy, about 2; and from
seventy to seventy-five, a little over 1 pr
cent. Then the number falls off. In fact,
all but 5 per cent, die before they reackche
age of three score and ten. "Vhile the mor
tality in New York is 32 in 1,000, we have
reason to believe tltat under favorable cir
cumstances the inevitable mortality should
not be more tlian 17 in 1,000; that the mor
