OUII WASHINGTON LETTER.
WASHiGTroN D. C., May, 18; 1878. The Republicans will make, are making, a mistake In attempting to conduct the comming camnpaign in the States on a strictly Aiti-Sprtlh ern basis. Even while the whotecoun try was comparatively prosperous, in 18G8 and 1872, there was not enough in the sectional question to make the election of a President certain, so, he sides that the popularity of a success ful soldier was sought and his strer gth given to the ticket. In 1L76, if the Republican platform meant the bloody shirt and proscription of soutlhern men and interests because they were Southern, the meaning was carefully concealed, but nevertheless the blppdy dy shirt was waved and toe ituBlt was defeat. Of the white vote of the country Mr. Tilden recieved three quarters of a million more than Mr. Hayes. But for the wavering Ger mans and civil service retormers brought in by Schuz, Evarts, and the others, that majority would have been much larger, and Ohio and other States would have given their votes for Tilden. In the face of these facts, even if no question outside of those concerning the South had acquired importance in the minds of the people, it would be folly to rely upon these alone for success. But in many States North and East, the currency ques tion had assured new fofm* and ac quired a new sigonificance, hiod Vill tender appeals to sectional feeling ineffectual even among the "stalwart" Republicans of New England. When the Government has 'resnm ed specie payments" we shall still have substantially the same dilficul ties to contend with as now. A con dition of affairs which enables us to pay in gold to-day may not exist to morrow. If it exist to-morrow it may not in aweek. The investigation of the electoral fraud in Florida and perhaps in Lou siana and South Carolina has been determined on and Mr. Hayes will soon stand before the 'coptry and world in his true character. With no intention of- detracting from the services of any other repre sentative in Congress of the Southern people, it may be said of Senator Gor don that none had a greater influence in forcing the concession made to that section than he. From the day he first took his seat in the upper House it has been felt and acknowl edged in every direction, while never yielding his convictions of right to "expediency" his clear, statesmenlike way of stating them always tends to allay sectional opposition and quite petty jealousies; and while the inter est of Georgia always has the prefer ance, his views are sufficiently broad to take in and correctly estimate those pertaining to every other sec tion. The number and characterof the audience that listened to his speech last Tuesday attest the almost uni versal interest felt in his utterance and the weight attached to them. Of the many able speeches on the all-absorb ing topic of finance this session, it is doubtful if any have called out so large a house, certainly beta amre in telligent one; and if the rounds of ap plause that greeted him again and again corectly interpreted the santi ments he aroused and created, it must be accorded the place-of a masterpiece. It will be sought god ipad in full by many with whomp Bi3-t~iing relating to financial matters are ordinarily very dry reading, and I refer all to the Record, conte tiq. e with just saying that he arraigned bur fi nancial legislation of the last 10 years as the source of all our present woes. He denonced contractioni.as. the'im mediate and remote cause of all the commercial distries and all the enf fering and demoralization of to-day, and he fortified and xinade his posi tion doubly impregnable by copious citations from our own and foreign history. The Post, Democratic daily here, said of it: "Gen; a0 09l4 bpeech was the feature of tre ptbbeddings. The galleries were filled with ladies and gentlemen in anoticipatioan of something brilliant and they were not disappointed. Gen. Gordon sur passed all his former eforts. Hepic tared in words of eloquence the evils that have followed vicious financial legislation, and pointed out the way to escape the fatal -consequences of this legislation. As s'oon as he ceased speaking the crowded.glleries were emptied, showing what had brought the people out. ALBIOIN. VAN DORN AND FORREST., BY OGN. D. H. MAURY, OF RICHaO'vD, vA. I Detroit Free Prepse.i ? In the spring of 1863 Forrqst was in Middle Tennessee, commandtngribrigade in the cavalry corps of Van Dorn. By one of his bold and ajcillful movements he captured a Federal brigade comman ded by Gen. Coburn, and duly rejrorted th. capture of the men, hores, arms and equipments to Gen. Bmrgg, 'ho or~t~red that all the captured projperty siounld b turned into the proper ofiers .of. tbiear-, my. But Forrest's men had tMd in the principle that the Spoils bloui to the victor, And Gen. Braggtw 4bpl offiiers received but few contrt, tione om For rest's fortunate operations ah4 Van Dotn was instructed to call him to acdount and enforce obedience to the ordy oftP(g a. commanding the army. Accordingly Van Dorn sent for Forrest and sternly asked hign1 wJiy~hetwrl not turnedin the arms, etc., captinred with Cobnro's Brigade. , d , Forrest ~eplied. "1~eo~spqo.Ihv.'bgo 'em." "Then," said Van Dbra, " rpreseft statement is at variqas yo tw ten report." w Forrest replied: "Gen. Van Dorn, I am not in the habit o& being spoken to in that way, au &Wbon itadadeen the time comes that your tmkmi~t lp. toi~rpue, you shall answer tog 1gris, "oen. Forrest, my 1i&iTtiSkll never stand between me ap9 any man who fee a aggrieved by me, aid I am at your sep vice now, sir." Forrest paused a moment, passed 14s hand across his forehead and sai "Gep. Van Dorn, there ~eeamsnah yeo and me to fght, witIout our each other, and yea and !'Wis let this matter stop' wtght orry I spoke to you as I 4i, :afd hone you will forget it - Van Dora "hi ygr4i*gg, i Forre4if, I am glad tolebar youspe so, sure yeini shall Imer ' of your words-no man will dyer question your rddineas tIotIght Ann or an thing.

The receipts of grain at New Or leans is on the rapid increase, being Ilarger now than at any time since 1865. The milling industry of this coun try is said to rank next to that of iron. 'The number of wills is over 25,001), affording employment to over 60,000 men, whose annual wages are about 200oo00000; and turning out yearly hboit 56,0,000) barrels of tilouhr, of which 4,000,000 are exported to for eign countries. Favorable reports come to us from the interior regarding tihe condition of young cotton and corn. In some districts cotton growth has been slightly checked by cool nights, but on the whole it is in good order. In the valleys the young cotton plant is undergoing the. acraping process, while stands are reported to average well and to be unusually good in sec tions. The prospect is all that can be wished. The area in cultivation is fully as large as last year. The WAshington correspondent of a Philadelphia paper says that inter est on United States bonds is now frequently paid in green backs, and adds that one holder recently took 8100,00)0 in paper money in prefer ence to gold. Considering that govern ment depreciates its own paper, by refusing to accept it in payment of duties, this statement of preference of greenbacks to gold is in proof that government paper money is not only as goodl, but better than gold for all dlomestic purposes. The wheat crop has been damaged by rain, fly and rust, especially in West and Middle Tennessee. The tgent of the injury in some locali tifs is said to be as much as 50 per cent though on the whole it will not amount to that. In Illinois and Mis souri there has been damage from the same causes, as also in Alabama and some parts of Georgia. Throughout the Nriwes4,;4lid -as far .north as tfie;ritilih lM)qiýssions, t i farmers ar b ubglastto their ·elds, which jh l ktd n ltypng wheat, sg1orobs d 'lty, and nearly a month in advance of last year, and promising 25 or 30 per cent greater yield. Other crops are in equally good order. The Supreme Court of Massachu setts has decided that a note given for a church gubscription does not carry with it an obligation to pay, since it is given without considera tion. SA Chicago man says that he is go ing to put 1000 hives of bees on barges drawn by a tug, starting from Lou isiana northward on the Mississippi, halting every fifty miles to allow the bees to feed, arriving at the clover fields of Minnesota in July. Texas estimates an increase of 15 per cent in her wheat crop over last year. The acreage last year was about 400,000; this year it will be about 450,000, which, at an average yield of thirteen buahels per acre, will produce a crop of 5,000, 000 bushels. This is insuflcient for the home consumption of that state, and the probbhlity is that the inrease oif produc tion will not keep pace with additional requirements$,or 6nly the table lands are profitable for wheat culture, cotton pay ing better in the low lands, while timber lands consume more than they produce.
