Elley in Times-Democrat. In presenting so ire of the most recent discoveries of importance aneut this insect to the National Academy of Science at its annual session in Washington last May, I considered the question o f hi bernation, and will here repeat the statement. There are various theories held by competent men, both entoniol ogists and planters, as to the hi bernation of this Alelia; some be lieve that it is hibernated in the chrysalis state, some that it survi ved in the moth state, while still others contend that it did not hi bernate at all in the United States There were many known facts which gave weight to this last hy pothesis by rrof. A. R, Grote. The strongest points in its favor were that the insect was never seen in any State during the mouths of March, April and May, together with the tendency of er ror fiom mistaking other species on the part of those who reported having found either the crysalis or the moth during the winter months. Yet there are many facts Which, as I then stated, led me to believe that the theory was erroneous and that, as I have already couteuded, the insect did hibernate iu the southern portion of the cotton belt. How diUlcult it has been to get absolute and experimental proof of the correctness of this belief may be gathered from the fact that I have had competent agents each wiuter since that of 18TD 80 fully instructed to search for and obtain such evidence, and that until tho present winter it has never been forthcoming. I am glad to be nblo to state, however, llmt it is now an established fact, and that during a trip last March to South Georgia and Florida, I was able to completely bridge the gup which had hitherto been sup posed to exist to the annual cycle of tho Insect's history. Wo have, during the past winter, been able to obtain the moth, and have watched thcin, in fact, until tho early part of March. We have found the eggs deposited bIbo in tho early part of March just as the hibernating moth were disappear ing aud I have found worms of all sizes on rat'oon cotton during tho latter part of the month. I received crysalides from this first brood of worms in the first day of April, and tho fresh moths are iov issuing. This is fully six weeks to two mouths curlier than the first worms were discovered in the spring of 1879 and 1880, though we then discovered them in tho latter part of April, or sev eral weeks earlier than they had previously been recorded. Iu short, there is nothing more fully established now than that the moth hibernates principally under the shelter of rank wire grass in tho more heavily timber ed portions of tho South j that these moths begin laying on the rutoon cotton when this is one inch or so high. That the first few generations of worms are raroly noticed and nev particularly injurious is due to the fact that they are more generally dispersed (tho moth appearing to fly great distances, laying hero an egg and there an egg, instead of laying hundreds on tho same plant as it docs later in the season), few in numbers, and quite liable to at tack other food; also to the loss rapid development during the cool er spring months. Aside from the satisfactiou of bridging over so important a gap in natural history of this destructive insect, the fact established has this important economic bearing. Whsrens, upon the theory of annnual invasion from some exotic country there is now every incentive to such action as will destroy it, either by attractingit during the mild wiuter weather by sweets, or by burning the grasses in which it shelters. It should be a warning to cotton growers to abandon tho slovenly method of cultivation which leaves the old cotton stalks standing un til the next crop is planted or long after that event, for many planters have the habit of planting tho seed in a furrow between the old row of stalks. The most careful recent researches all tend to confirm the belief that Gossypium is the only plant upou which the worm can feed, so that in the light of the facts which I have presented there is all the greater incentive to that mode of culture which will pre vent the growth of ratooa cotton, since it is very questionable whether the moth will survive long onongh to perpetuate Itself upon newly-sown cotton except for the intervention of the ratoon cotton.

Frospert for Building the ODOssam Ferk Leree Ten Good. $53,000 Sabwribed, Arkansas City Journal. The prospect for an early lettiug of the contract for the e rectiou of the levee from this point to the Amos Bayou hills is very Batter ing. Through the uutiring energy of Major John D. Adams, Col. M. XT. Lewis and others, funds to the amount of sixty -three thousand dollars have been subscribed to the building of the same including the ?U'j,000 that tho government has allotted us. This is a suffi cient amount to construct a levee that will withstand any waters that we have ever had if judiciously ex pended. There is no reason why this important work should not be commenced at ouco and not procrastinate. rrocrastination has been our great fault. We do not let out our contract until it is so late that tho contractors never have time to complete the same before tho high water is upon us and theu we lose all that we Have expended. It would be far better for us, if this matter is delayed much longer, to defer the matter until next summer and commence the work tho first of September. Our high waters come np iu Janu ary and February aud if we defer letting the contract until iu De cember we will fail to realize any good from the work as wo did last year. There is one other fact our levee commisiiioiiers should consider well in this important work. If they iutend to levee the country, let us commence at tho source of all of our troubles and levee down making it a permanent work so that should anything intervene to prevent the completion of the same, the next year we will have something to start with and build too. This way of building small patches of levees at several points and not connecting them will do us no good and we will suffer as much from high water as we would if we had noue at nil. Each aud every one should bend their utmost energies to tho mat ter aud never let up uutil the end is accomplished. With the levees up we have the finest country in the world and with thorn down we had bettor abandon tho country and not wasto our valuable tune iu speculating as to what the govern ment is going to do. Tho govern ment is willing to help those that are willing and try to hi'lp them solves ; but the public treasury is not going to be emptied out in our behalf if we do not take hold and do something ourselves The First Bank. It Is one of the most remarka ble phenomena that the first bank ever established won a success uneqiialed -iu latter times. The Bank of Venice had its origin in 1171 from a forced public loan raised to fit out a fleet, and is the first appearance of a public funded debt. Every citizen was obliged to contribute the one-hundredth part of his possessions. The persons assessed were thou organized as a chamber of loans for their common protection and for receipt of the yearly inter est of 4 per cent. Subsequently its creditors were permitted to transfer their claims to others, in whole or in part. The government, finding that these transfers were in demand, reduced the rates of interest until no interest was paid. Afterwards it sold cash inscrip tions of credit on its books. These inscriptions cost gold, but were not convertible into gold. As a matter of fact, although termed a bank, its issue were government paper, aud its business was car ried on solely for the benefit of the public treasury. This bank is still oue of the foremost financial institutions in the world. For 200 years the Bank of Venice Btood alone. m m I Times-Democrat. J The editor of the Gatosviile (Texas) Advocate has been pub lishing a larger paper than his re ceipts warranted, and to reduce his expenses has taken up a pat ent inside. He apologizes as fol lows : "We are of the opinion that as long as the newspaper business is carried on like it ts iu Texas, country editors will have to have patent insides to their papers or patent insides to their families. And the patent inside papers are better specimens of journalism than the insides of the dignified papers that first run their papers on credit and then into the ground. We were an all-home print editor. Then we had dignity. We are a patent inside editor now and barer grub. The latter condition is more in consonance with advanced ideas of iuYtiultiiuJ UuitSopuiiW Tie Riot at Xrw Iberia. Special to Tbe T ime-Pemoert. Xew Iberia, Jov. 1. Judge Fontelieu and eight or ten others left here this morning for Loreau ville, Fausee Poiute, in this parish, to hold a political meeting in tbe interest of Kellogg. After the crowd assembled some disturbance was created by persons hallooing, "Hurrah for Gay." Joe Guilfoux rushed to the scene of trouble, and was fired at, the ball passing through Lis hat. He returned the fire. At that moment a general row ensued, in which Capt. Bell, a prominent sugar planter and Democrat, Joe Guilfoux, a leading Gay man, and Olivar Boutte, a col ored Kellogg man from UeV Iberia, were all killed outright. The wounded, so fur as known,are Julos Mestayer, Republican candi date for for sheriff last spring, thigh brokeu ex Sheriff T. Viator, shot twice in the abdomen, and a dozen others slightly wounded. Six negroes were killed as far as knowu. It was reported that Judge Fontclin was shot, bat later facts show that it is untrue. Tbe perpe trators were surrounded and kept under guard uutil the sheriff ar rived to arrest them. A courier was dispatched to New Iberia and iu a few minutes the town was in the wildest excitement All the drinking saloons were closed at 4 o'clock by order of the Mayor. Some fifty or seventy-five men from here left under orders of the sheriff for tho scene of trouble, all armed with double barreled shot-guns and rifles. They arrest ed Judgo Fontelieu, Alphe. Fonte lieu, Laodice Fontelieu, Albert Fontelieu, and Adolph Bienvcnu, all white. Tho prisoners were brought in to night under a heavy gnard and placed in the parish prison. Tho wildest excitement prevail ed at this moment, but the masses of the people were kept back and quiet uutil they were in Jail. The first ball came from the Republi can ranks, after which it is said a thousand shots were firodat once. On the battlefield, it is said, a dozen horses nro lying about dead. The jail is heavily guarded. It is impossible to learn how many were wounded, but it is reliably reported that a great many wero wounded and left during the excitement. ADDITIONAL rAHTICVLARS. New Iberia, Nov. 2. Every thing has been quiet since tho Fausse Toint trouble yesterday. The prisoners are still confined in jail. They will probably get a pre liminary hearing to-morrow. A great many reports camo in from Fausse Point to day, nearly all different as to the number killed and wounded. Coroner Mauvielle came in late this even ing, and he says there are sixteen negroes dead and two whites. He has called a jury and will bold an inquest to-morrow. All who were in the fight and saw it when it began, say that the first shot came from a negro, who fired at Mr. Guilfaux from bis coat pocket. Capt. Bell nnd Mr. Joe Gilfaux wore killed instantly, and from the first volley. Their pistols were taken off their bodies after the fight and every chamber was found loaded, showing that they had not fired a shot. When they fell two of tbe most respected aud beloved citizens of Fausse Point died. Their friends present, consisting of six or eight, were so infuriated that they went into the battlo re gardless of everything and fought bravely. A great many negroes stood and fought until they emptied their pistols. The majority, however, stampeded. Hundreds jumped into the bayou. Some being wounded, did not got out, and others, who ran, dropped all along the road aud in tho woods and died. One negro was found near by, iu his cabin, dead without a bruise on him. It is still nnknown bow many were killed, but there were sixteen certaiuly, and probably twenty. Nearly all of these negroes re ceived their balls from stray shots. Acting Secretary Coon has in troduced an important reform in tbe Treasury Department. For years grocers, shop-keepers and others have sent complaints to the department, charging clerks with habitual deadbeatism. It has been shown in some cases that whilej clerks squandered their money in gambling aud drinking, they com pelled their grocers ami butchers to Bitpport their families. Mr. Coon reasoued that such men were disbonect and unfit for the gor eminent service. Whenever he has found them out he has dis charged them. Others, out of fear of discharge, have settled op their bills, and complaints of dead beatisra airaitmt Trenanrv !--i have greatly decreased.' Ex. W ktre Ire the Orators! Excepting Colonel Vilas, who possesses all the qualifications of oratory voice, elocution, ideas, vocabulary and all the charms of these which combined make what men call 'style'' iu oratory, and excepting Fellows and Cocbrau, who proved dcliirhtful debaters, there were no orators in tbe con vention. There were, of course, some good speakers, like Wallace, Kelly, McKenzie, Grady, Waller, Abbott, Curamiugs. Clack, but or atory is more than voice, more than the ability to mace a clear statement of fact in dictation ap sppropriate and correct. What are our colleges doiug in these later years t Are we to have muscular development every where except in the throat t Are we to have a generation of men who can write aud not a dozen who cau speak t Is the haudliug of an oar skillfully come to be more important than the handling of ideas vocally I Is the art of sparring with the gloves more de sirable iu our day than the art of thinking on the feet t Must our young men practice dancing, ten nis, polo, base ball, cricket, and shall nobody practice oratory t Or does culture delude itself with the belief that oratory is simply ideation, requiring no special mus cular course f If Deiuosthcues had thought so, Greece might have perished sooner. If Cicero had thought so, Catiline might have ruined Rome. If Pitt had thought so, many noble measures would have been long delayed. If Miiabeau lias thought so, the gal axy of France would uiiss one shining name. If G rattan had thought so, the Parliament of Ire land would not hare shown that, when permitted to do so, Ireland can govern heresclf better than her enemy lias governed her. If Patrick Henry hud thought so, the American revolution might have been postponed. If Charles Sum uer had thought so, American his tory would read less sublimely. Oratory is truly an art as poet ry, or sculpture or painting. It Iibs its science; and like poetry, like sculpture and like painting, its laws must be obeyed. It is a double art; an art of tho miud, an art of the mnsclns. It requires strong and pliant, soft and stiple vocal chords, aud their strength and pliancy, their endurance and their timbro are the product of cultivation that is, of practice ac cording to law. It is a double art iu Its code of gesture and attitude facial expression, and all variety of bodily action, influence by tbe progress of the speaker's ideas to be expressed simultaneously by words and bodily action; and this again, can bo correctly acquired ouly by cultivation by practicing according to law. It is not enough to have education. It is not enough to have memory; indood, many of the finest orators have feeble memory and must trust to tho spotaneous inspiration of time, place, occasion to move them to effort. But, whether the spoken thoughts be uttored with out preparation or be written aud committed, their delivery in au ef fective and pleasing form is au art wholly apart from imagination or diction. It is a muscular art, the aesthetic art of the muscles; and it can be acquired ouly by study of principles and by actual prac tice. Mr. Hubbard bad moro voice than Colonel Vilas, and on the scales would be more distin gnished, but it was only Colonel Vilas that even tbe least discrim inating as well as the most cult ured pronounced the orator. Ex. 1 Public Library at Jacksen. Special to Commercial Herald. Jackson, Miss., Nov. 3. Jack son has Ukcn another progressive step.

A tiger photographed in the very act of killing a buffalo is probably an occurrence unparal leled in tbe annals of the camera. Yet that such a photograph has actually been takeu is vouched for in the Indian press. Tbe artist, it appears, had focused on the buf falo, which was tied for the occa sion to a treo-stump in the'niiddle of a field, and bad just put a dry plate into the camera, wheu the tiger, brought up to the spot for the purpose, went at it and struck down the great homed beast with a single blow of bis right paw. "My instrument," says the photo grapher, "was about seven yards from tbe buffalo, and the tiger might just as well have come at me if he had chosen to do so, -but be preferred tbe beef, aud taking advautage of the momout be had sprung npon his victim. 1 released the spring shutter just as he bad given the buffalo his kuock down blow." The negative is good enough to give au autheutio picture from the life of the most terrible of carnivo rous beasts at the precise moment when it had stunned its huge prey. The buffalo, though fatally struck, hud uot even had time to fall be fore the "sun picture" of its dying! moments was fixed upon tbe faith ful plate, aud so there it stands with its knees just giving away under it, and its great head droop ing in death. A quarter of a sec ond later, and it was lying on the ground lifeless; but on the photo grapher's glass it remains forever in the actual attitude of dying, and at the instant when it is diawiug its last breath. After slaying the buffalo the tiger stretched its head round over tbe neck aud, slipping its mouth dowu to the buffalo's throat, lay across it, sucking its life-blood. This fact is an extraordinary one, for it has long been decided, upon what were considered indisputa ble observations, that tbe tiger never, by any chance, commeuced its meal at the throat Sometimes, if there were a fight, it would wound Its adversary in that spot ; but, as a rule, it trusts to its first blow to break its victim's neck, aud then pulling it down ou to the ground begins to devour a postiou of the hind quarters, Will or the Late llarry Moss.

Times-Democrat. The Federal Judiciary aud the people are to be congratulated that political cases are not to be decided in advance in courts of justice. Judge Pardee yesterday, in the case of Norton et als. vs Brewster, decided that he had no jurisdiction to compel a Stato offi cer to erase any names from the registry list, alleged to be fraudu lently registered. It is a hopeful sign when a Federal judge calmly considers a case of this import ance and resists the appeals of partisans to Interfere with and set aside tbe State authority. It will be a lesson in the future. Judge Pardee showed an impartiality worthy of tbe position he holds, and has entrenched himself in tbe confidence of tbe people by his decision.
