Approved, February 10, 1880. A private legislative eaulus of the Democratic members of tbe legislature waa held on Moaday in tbe hall of the house, for the pur pose of maturing a plan of action for the coming presidential cam paign. The eauens was, as it should be, very secret and held with closed doors, so that the par ticular aubjocto idlscussed can as yet be enly arrived at by lutein gent conjooture. Enough has bceu made knowa however to ren der it reasonably certain that one of the prime objecta of the can cus was to consider the advisabll- Ur of rodistilctlug the Slate; in other words ot making another gerrymander of it before the uext election of members of congress. Without desiring to raise any Issue upon the political ethics of auoh a proceeding, we question It seri ously at a matter of party expe diency. The congressional die tricts as they bow exist have been Axed by a Demos ratio legislators anu me wiaaom or tbe measure has been vindicated by the trium phant ciociloa and re-election of the entire congressional delegation Vlcksburg Commercial. It is not anpposable that the Democrats Conservative members of the logician will mU In nlv ing this matter mature considera tion; and we doubt not but that thoy will rive good and satisfac tory reasons for what they do. ia ricus. The duchess of Marlborough, iu letter to the lord mayor of Lou says. The danger of a famine appears over, and if the charity of the public continues no person in Ireland need be allowed '.0 die for lack of food; but the commitie, to bring their labors to a successful close, must spend over 10,000 per week for six weeks or more." Baroness Berdett Coutts has subscribed fJ2,fioo,000 to be devotod to the relief of the Irish. It is to ho expeuded in giving them employment. The Herald fund has reached 8200,000, and Is swelling daily, eelve that any statute is violated. 80 far as concerns the wrong to the negro, that consideration Is easily satisfled by Republican logicians; who will effectually reply that it la belter to undergo hardshipe north of the Ohio, than to lire ia comfort to the south of that river; because one is the north aad free dom, the other Is the South aad oppression. One of the witnesses stated that they had calculated tbe cost; had concluded they could Import voters cheaper than they could purchase tbem at home. Another admitted that so far the result had not beea satisfactory; owiag to the large proportion of bob voters atuoug the immigrants. The lowest price at which Iron was ever sold ia this country was reached in January, 1879. Number one pig Iron was sold at that lime for sixteen dollars a tou. The same iron is now sold for forty dollar a ton. The impression seems to be that the price of Iron will continue to advance. It is ascertained beyond question that there will be au unprecedented do mand durlug the preseut year for mauufactered iron of all kiuds. Tho amouut required by railroads will be very greaf-N. O.
