EDITOR CHIEF : Mr. Gladstone delivered an address not long since to the Fine Art Ex hibition at Chester, England, on " Beauty in Manufactures," in which he made certain references to the United States. After calling atten tion to the two objects in manufacture -one of which was utility, and the other beauty--he proceeded to say that the English manufacturer need have No fear from America. A long expe rience of public life, which has placed me very much in relation to the great in dustries of the country, made Ile long ago of opinion that anl Englishman is a plmrvelons man in the business of pro duction when he is put nnder pressure; but if he is not put under pressure he is apt to grow relaxed and careless, and is satisfied if he can produce things that will sell. He has not got as much as he ought to have of the love of-excellence for its own sake. But I hold it is not visionary at all; for, depend upon it, every excellence that is real, whether it relates to utility or beauty, has got its price and its value. in the market, and it is an element of strenith in the market. There is no doubt England has been very renmarkable for cheap productions ; but in this a formidable rival is now spring ing lip in America. America, however, has been taken with what is called a fever of protection, and so long as Amer ica suffers from thie fever English manu facturers will not have a great deal to fear from American rivals. But when she learns to trust entirely to her own splendid national resources the great genius of her people, their marvelous proficiencyv in the adoption of labor sav lug contrivances, in which they are ahead of the whole world, America. will be a formidaile competitor. But what you have now to contend against is not comipetition with America, but limita tion of markets. You are met on every side with hostile tariffls, an-d you want to bound over these tariftls and get with in them. Well, for that purpose the British iproducer must consider the solid ity of this work and its homely qualities, and endeavor to make it, in the first place. true work, not professing to be any thing but what it is, to divest it of all falsehood and a5lt:h ; for, hIowever the impositure may last for a little while, the cf.hct is ultimately to destroy the repntation, to take away confidencc, and to react most injuriously upon those who have attempted the trick. Again, when dwelling upon the im mnuse adva:itage in the market of beauty of nal4d-l utility, he assured |is hearers that there was No bjKuity in America. I have been ptlmking of Anusricanls. with whlom I trust we shall always cotinue ill peace nisd in monds of brotherhood : adl it yo .I take the industrial produlctions of Amer- i iea, I am sorry to say we tind tha't very few have any beauty at all. The circum stances of their national existence down s to the present time have, from the searri- h tv of labor and other euses, co.mpelled themnl to do a tiling in the shorte.t and ,1 ,most effectuad way for answering the inmmediate purpose, and the beauty of production his been entirely overlooked, mnay illustrate t s by reference to at pursuit to, which I have imyself yelation-tbe fitting of woo. At|erlcan i. not intended to .ut i t o away neatly, but to cut a tree away quiokly. The American does not eare a pin about beauty of work; his object is to eleargrgund. The iboveis a striking proof that .. even genius must not attempt to be 1, too versatile. ,In attempting the role of Ruskin the great statesman errs n greatly sato his facts, and his brill r. iant talk is not true. If American work has a fault, it is its redundance d of ornamentation; we gild plows and emblazon wagons, our street cars are moving picture galleries. Our art may be meretricious and misplaced, but the ambition is not wanting, and time will bring excellence and refine r ment. One would suppose Mr. Glad stone had never seen an International Exhibition, where the United States in every department except that of pure art,'as seen in statuary, on can vas, and in productions where the aesthetic idea was the aim and the attainment, excelled in grace of pro portion, beauty of finish, in.adapta tion and in style. Who, that has compared our vehicles, whether on street, on rail, or in park, with the sombre, clumsy machines of Paris and London, has not seen this. Our de fect is not poverty of art sense but an exuberance of ornamentation which -time will tame. A Frenchman at the i late Exhibition looking at one of our luxurious locomotives, replete with every convenience and every conceit of science and art, resplendent in steel and brass, could find no other expression for his irony than the question: " Where, then, is the piano I " ROVER. A FrAUD.-One Dr. H. F. Hart, for four or five years past a citizen of Perryville, Ark., located last spring at Rocky Mount. Bossier parish, where he behaved himself very badly. Although he has two wives, both liv ing at last account-one at Pine Bluff and the other at Perryville, Arkansas-lie gained the consent of a young lady of Rocky Mount to marry him; but his bad character was discovered in time to save the young lady from this sad fate, and the scoundrel left the community for parts unknown, leaving an unpaid board bill. Hart claims to be a Ken tuckian. He is 6 feet 1} inches high; weighs 200 pounds; has a wild look about his eyes; broad shoulders, and about 35 years old. He is a bad character. Our brethren of the press will please pass him around. -Bossier Banmer. The Baton Rouge Capitoliai hoists the name of Louis A. Wiltz for Gov ernor and grows eloquent in his praise.

Nick has been offered free passage through all the plan tations, for which he feels very grateful,: but he thinks it best to quietly grope his way through the vines and wild cane till the mercury drops down to about 450° while another fellow lugs off new pocket knives and refreshments from generous hosts. However, it would be a gl lous change from hard tack, broiled wild meat, musquitoes and gnats, to a grand reception dinner with store clothes on. Perhaps a little white sugar in his'n wouldn't hurt.

Uncle Edward, the goose egg eyed darkie that came so near pegging out some time ago at the first sight of Nick of the Woods, is himself again. We met the old fellow the other day and asked him all the particulars about his fright and other important matters concerning himself and family. The old man turned it out in the following style : "'Fore de Lord, boss, dat beat all de cumrs of dat ebber happened to die ole darkie sence he fust seed the light oh day. When I was playin' my ole gourd and 'casionally singin' dat bressed song : Possum up the gum tree, Coon in de hollow, of I'd been shot up in de kingdum cum I wouldn'd a been a happier nigger and when dat tarnation ugly thing cum and stood in de dore, I be shore de debil hab me.

" Can't tell sah, sum ses one thing and sum see anudder, an' I hearn um say it was Nick ob de Woods, but as for me I jes sure it was do ole horned fellow lis self, sah-jes as sure."

SPOOL COTTON. ESTABLISHEI) 1812. s GEORGE A. CLARH, SOLE AGENT, 400 Broadway, New York, The distinctive features of this spool cot ton are that it is made from the very finest Sea Island Cotton. It is finisned soft as the cotton from which it is made; it has no waxing or artificial finish to deceive the eyes; it is the strongest, smoothest and most elastiin sewing thread in the market: for machine sewing it has no t equal; it is wound on WVhite Spools. The Black is the most perfect JErT BlA.OCM ever produced in spool cotton, being dyed by a system patented by ourselves. The colors are dyed by the NEW ANILINE PROCESS, rendering them so perfect and brilliant that' dressmakers everywhere use them instead of sewing silks. A Gold Medal was awarded this spool cotton at Paris, 1878, for " great strength," and " general excellence" being the highest I award given for spool cotton. We invite comparison and respectfylly ask ladies to give it a fair trial and convl'ce themselves of its superiority over all others. To be had at wholesale and retail at Mrs. M. Israel & Co., G. Feitel. And at retail, of all the leading mei hants inthe town. Succession Sale. State of Louisiana-Parish Court-Parish of Ascension.
