It is as much a question nith the country non kg ia tbe inmigration of Chinese. That it " must go " i* a souled question, but the question still remainR. " Whit nill you do nilh it I " Non, this tire-brand itt the hands of the sevcislist* snd revo? lutionist*, and at thc same time ?'snarl morfel " thst the politi? cal demagogues are in the habit af rolling under their tongues ss an argument hy which to lift them? selves into office, rosy be removed from polilits and mede to serve a good and Bseful purpose by colonizing convicts for certain crimes in Alaska. As yet ther* ha* bren discovered no employ? ment fur convicts which will not con? flict with honrst labor. My plan is to colonize them somewhere in the south? eastern division nf Alaska, Which, you know, is below the Arctic circle, and nhrfh, consequently, would subject thc convicts to a much less rigorous cli? mate than that of Siberia, or at least much of its territory. Alsska is a vast country, most of it unexplored. but enough ha* been discovered for geographers to ssy that it embraces more than one sixth of tbe aree of the I tuted State*. and it* territories, with thc river Yo kon flowing through it, a river which is raid to dischsrge in the Behring sea one third more water than does ??the Father of Waters" into the Gulf. American enterprise bas already taken bold of the fur trade of this almost un? known region, "and there are trading stores from Behring sea to tho eastern boundary." Now as to the tempera turo of this region. Mr. Ivan Romanof, tbe American agent near Sitka, has state ti the mean annual temperature fur winter to be about 10 degrees above aero, and the average temperature for summer at 56 degrees. " Turnips and radishes and lettuce- appear to he vegetables that can be cultivated. The winters list about seven months?ex? tending from October to May. Mag* aionarirs in thc central Yokon region have aaa* that " in this fertile valley millions of agriculturists might be sup? ported." but this statement, I think, is somewhat exaggerated. In many places " the best crops of cereals and tubers insy be grown." The census report informs us that coal, in accessi? ble veins, is found. Vast forests of cedar, spruce, and pine are waiting to be developed into a great business. As the reindeer, walrus. polar-Lt ar. seal, and other fir bear mg animals rind a rafags in this desolate region, a fur am) walrus-ivory business, inigbl be de? veloped by the colonization scheme ; snd. from s scientific point of view, u foothold here for Arctic explorers might thus be made, tasks might bs matte the base of operations for tho colony, lt is in the eastern geographi? cal division, where Christianity has found a lodgement. Greek. Kunian Catholic, and Protestant schools have already been established j Fnglish is taught in a Presbyterian missionary school, which has un attendance of one hundred pupils. In brief, by colt'iii/iig convicts in Alaska a vast lumber, fur, itory, and tish ] trade might be developed that would add millions to the wealth of this coun? try, and at the same time remove from our politics the vexed question of con- : viet labor. For precedents for this j colonization scheme we have thc action of the most enlightened governments of j Europe, such as England, France, Ger* iiiari. and Russia. What is the ob? jection to this plan? Why is it not practicable'* The more I read of Alaska, the more convinced 1 am of the utility af the cedonization of con? victs in it, and 1 should like to be beard further upon the subject, if you would allow the space. D. ,1B* Atlanta Inetan** as Belated lo Ike Hm slums ur Farra and Kare rallllrs. To Ihe Editor of the Dispatch : I understood you as citing the A? lanta ca*e merely as an instance illus trative of a point, and hence regarded your fmilks relative thetcto as appli? cable- to any instance where a popular vote on s question is taken with the at? tendant circumstances of tho cited case. Therefore I thought I could deduce from your article on this case the point that it would be " unfortunate." for the majority by which any law became of enactment to be small when the ma? jority of those voting for thc law were negroes, simply from thi> latter fad ss it ttl)' considered, from which deduction 1 claimed that this line of argument carried oul would develop the logical sequence that i " unfortunate" for any law to be passed that receives a majority of ibe negro setts, anti ultimately "unfor? tunate" for a msji-rity if the negroes to be on either side of a question. Hence my point was that if our preju? dices cause our respect for laws to he gauged in the light of preponderating negro sentiment thereon, wc could never b* rid of race politics. Now, of course, if you mean that in the abstract it is ?? unfurl un ile for the danger to exist of tbe question of force being raised" aub respect to the en? actment of a law, I very freely grant it. But, though your explanation re? duce* the point to " tho dangei of the nuesiioii of force " arising, yet do I not still understand yoi to predicate this danger upon tho fact ia it**// ctiiiielcreti, of a majority o negroes having voted for the lae paased by a small majority, and the as sumption of a consequent reaislauce l Ita execution'' For, selling out wit' tbe proposition that it was unfortunati that lb* majority was small because majority of negroes voted for the law (and in thia connection asking ?* hot would the white people of Kieihrnon like to have a law/tirce-i upon them b negro totes I ") you explain that " tl Bower that makes a law should be ab ta enforce it" and- ailinn that a la patted by women or one passed by rn Slea could not be executed, supposir e men in the oue catie and the nbi seen in the other reaist ita executioi Then, I repeat, do you not predicate tl danger of ibo question ol force ansit upon th* assumption that the ntasrti In the BaM i* composed of a majari of the whites ! If so. then this is iii fortunate, but not the mere fad in ilse conaJdered of the lan becoming of ci edment by a small majority, and ir, majority of negroes having favored i Let us advert bare a moment lo th cited case, per st. Is it a matter of fae that in Atlanta the hulk of tbe uegr.ie favor?d the lan and the bulk of th ttbitee tfBBjajnJ it?

True, "government turana force"; sot* lt is equally true that the majority Siwavg /vive Ibeir Tjgs*g mK\ yxitim ! upon tha minority, lt ls our theory of government.?,% will of the people," i e., of s majority of the people. It is always unfortunste for s bsd Isw to be passed; equally so for s good Isa to fail of successful execution through the efforts of iU opponents. Our govern? mental theory is that the minority shall respect the will of the majority as le gslly expressed. And we certainly should not refuse to obey s law be? cause of consideration* aith respect to the caste or class of thc majority of citir.cn* by whose voice it became of enactment. My recent articles in your paper have been written with the one aim and end in view to aid in removing the barriers to a division of our poople on economic question*. To this end obliteration of the color line?the politi? cal color linc?is a sine i/ua non. And whether iou deem my comments on your Atlanta article ts pertinent to the point you sought to make or not, my articles are not lost, for you will admit that race prejudices <l" inlluence politi? cal action to a great extent when no race issues exist; that the mere fact of a majority of negroes favoring a pro? posed law discounts the moots sf the law in thc estimation of many. Now. I say this: If we are ever to be rid of race politics, such prejudices, where no race questions are at all related to an issue, must be withdrawn. Thc merit of s proposed law cannot be gauged by an analysis of the caste or class of a majority of its opponents or advocates. Right is right, and error is error, regardless of who defends the right or who upholds error. And all patriotic citizens should lend a helping hand in speeding the day when the divisions that mark thc people shall be founded simply on their opposing views as regards economic questions. sud all actuated by the single aim and desire best to conserve the interests and welfare of a common country. Oh, there's nothing unfortunate in the new tide of feaaafl in (Jeorgia. Whether prohibition in itself considered will prove beneficial or not, the deter? mination of the people of this State to ignore sentimental politics and the color line is a grand move forward in thc line of practical politics and patriotism.

The most amusing thing I have heard, though, was : Thursday morning after election a colored woman asked a lady here for whom she worked, ?' Whit did they mean by the colored folks going tobe fruingtoeitmi now'" She had heard the colored men talking, and sup? posed they were saying the colored peo? ple would lie disfranchised now.

A t Sranlcl* sTalrS ???? B**a t* IS* BsttttS* t.iiif as! Uteri* With Atom. A foreign correspondent of the New York Sun writes to that paper the fol? lowing articles, which will interest all Hible students : ... The chief interest connected with Nablout* lies in the feet that it is the residence of tbe remnant of those Sa? maritans who were colonized here by Sbslmsneser, King gi Assyria, when be carried away the children of Israel captive. From the biblical record (2d Kings. 17th chapter.) it would appear that the new settlers were drawn from mixed nationalities and various cities within Ins dominions. Some came from Hal > li i. itself, some from Hamath, a town between Damascus and Aleppo, and others from Cutnah?-probably the Kniha of Arabian geographers, a town and tlistiict between the Tigris and I ti|dilate*?some from Ava. which has beal identified with tho modern Hit, and some from Sepharvaim, once thc famous city of Sippara, both cities Ott the Euphrates, in lower Mesopotamia. Wc are also told that the new colo? nists petitioned the King of Assyria to be taught the religion of the Jews, and that he sent them a Jewish priest lo tea.-h it to them, ami that they added it on, after a curious fashion, to thc va? rious forms of idolatry which they had imported from their tlitlertnt localities, and hence established a mongrel sort of worship which became afterward ptiri f'ed, but which, nevertheless, rendered them obnoxious to the Jews of Judea; all the more so because they intermar? ried with the remnants of the trihes of Israel which had escaped the captivity, thus forming a race as mongrel as their religion, lt is about *>,60e years since this event took place, but this ancient worship of the Samaritans exists to this day; so also does the bitter antagonism which they and Hie Jews mutually en? tertain for each other. 1 his is the oldest national fend proba? bly in e xistence, but as fresh as if it only originated yesterday. Like the Jews, thc Samaritans have managed to sui\ivc all the vicissitudes: of fate, but with the difference that a small rem? nant has clung through them all to the locality in whit?- the>y were originally established, though they have dwindled in numbers to one hundred and sixty fouls. As an ethnological traction of antiquity, they are perhaps the most inteie-stiiig group ol people extant. Tbs brst one 1 ever made acquaintance with was a young man who called upon mc in a mysterious manner one day in Haifa. He handed me u document in Arsbii, in which, after stating that for certain reasons, which he implied were by no means discreditable to him, he was an outcast from his own people. j he implored charity and re*iiested me ?? to cast upon him a regard of com? passion and benevolence." The docu- I mont further said : ?? All that I have inherited from my parents and ancestors is a manuscript written in ancient Hebrew, nine hun? dred years old. containing two ebkpteri of the Hilde, including the command? ments, which I bec to offer yon, in the bops that you will recompense me in return by a ann which will relieve mo of my (listless." He signed him-elf " Shellabi. the son af Jacob, the Samaritan." Now, I knew that Jacobes Battllsbi was the spiritual henel of tho sect, for he had been in London under the title of "The Prince of the Samaritans." and thc ro? mance which attended his style and dignity bad. it was reported, even cap tiva ed a fair English n oman, who was willing to become a Samaritan for his sake. Fortunately for her, " thc Prince" was already married, a fact which, I believe, he only divulged on his return to his native land. Anyhow, here was the son of a prince in distress, and here was an ex? tremely ancient and curious manuscript for sale. Ihe youth looked such a scamp, however, that ho did not enlist my sympathies. 1 suspected that bo had lost his money by gambling, which proved afterwards to be the case: so when he said he considered the manu? script worth $10 I offered him ll, on which he retired indignantly. A lett days later, however, he reappe-arc-1. ! took his dollar thankfully, and i retain possession of the manuscript. It is on coarse parchment of a yel lowish-brown color, two feet sis inches long, and fifteen inches , Wide. lt was evidently originally I longer, but has been torn oil'. <>nc i edge has been subjected to tbs action j of tire. The writing is in transverse 1 columns, each column thirteen inches long by live wide, and containing from sixty to seventy lines. The ebsrst - ter* aro of the old Samaritan type. small, rude, and irregular, differing io many important re*nMCta from the an i nut Hebrew, ami illegible to a good modern Hebrew scholar to whom I hate shown it. I have no doubt, how? ever, that it could be deciphered bj sn expert in aucb matters, who would also be able to establish from tbs f'.rini tion of the characters its antiquity. This incident excited my interc-t in the Samaritan question, and when 1 was at Nablous I tisited the synagogue, ex I amined the ancient Thorah. or book of ihe law. and have since looked into the lubjlct generally. The ancient syna? gogue was appropriated by thc Moslems -onie centuries ij-o. The modern boil 1 ? j ing is a small, unpretentious, oblong struct ni e. The walls are rough and , whitewashed, and the roof is vault? ed with two little domes in thc centre. The raizpah, or altar, is ; ? about fire feet square, covered with ? a ieil of yallon silk. Within ? are receptacles for the sabred books, I, Of these the raori valuable arc never | shown to strangers. One or two par ? sons have, however, seen the most an I clent, which the Samaritans claim to I hate been written by Abishua, the son l of Phinehas, thirty-five hundred years i ago. lt is only seen bj the congrega? tion once a j ear, when elevated above r the priest's bead on day of Atonement. > Tbe Thorah was rolled aro.md a cy? linder of wood similar to those used I in ordinary Jewish synagogues, and I - was gratified to observe that it exactly s rcFt-mbled the fragment in my posses? sion. |- wa? evidently very ancient. s The priest who showed me the syna e gogue wss s remarkably handsome-. 1 dignified-looking mau about forty year - , old, I asked him whether ho was th* I ch ie l piie.st. He said he was, and thal Jacob Shellabi no longer had suv BsteS . tior. among them. I then said 1 had I t obtained a piece of manuscript from . | his son, to which he made no reply, e but at once changed the subject. I l suspected the youth was a iBBBlBl'l I s< l> el, who committed an act of sacri , legious theft before leaving th* paternal !' mansion, and who did not therefore, - deserve more than he got. i Now, with regard to the sacred books - which I did not Bee : They are in aome I , respects in the highest degree interest* . - mg, as throeing light upon the Diblicsl I record. In the first place, from what . . ia known of the most ancient version, I claimed to be by Abishua, Gesenius, j and other great scholars have given it j Si their opinion that if it could be col? lated it would be found in many uso I to preserve the sense, which has been i lost in ihe Jewish tersion. This omn ' wu **> founded upoo the results of mci. collation aa has been fKuaibls with Samaritan texts which hare fallen into the hands of scholars. Resides the moat ancient roll there ere three other books known to be in the possession of the Samaritans. These are the Samaritan Book of Joshua, the Ssmsriten Chronicles, snd the so-called .. Fire-tried Manuscript." The Sama? ritan Book of Joshua probably dates from tho thirteenth century. It was published at I .ey'len about forty years ago from an Arabic manuscript in Sa? maritan character, and is thought to have been compiled from an early Sa? maritan and three later Arabic ehroni cles. It is invested with a peculiar interest from the fact that it helps to supply a remarkable laeSBS in the Biblical record, which does not appear to have received the attention it deserves from Biblical students. It is. in Iict, evident that a large portion sf the present book of .Joshua i-, mi sinr-. 'I bat book purports tobe an account of the conquest of Canaan and its allot? ment among the twelve tribes. Ender these circumstances it is most remarka? ble that we have no account of the con? quest of Samaria, though thc campaigns in the South, including the siege and taking of seven cities, and the invasion of Galilee, and thc defeat of tho league of six Kings of northern Palestine. are fully described. Then we have no list of royal Samaritan cities, though all of them in the other parts of the country are carefully enumerated. Wc have no description of the boundsrics of the two tribes to which Samaria was allotted, nor any list of the cities awarded to them. Boase of ihe Lcvitical towns mentioned ST Chronicles ss belonging to Samaria are not to bi found in Joshua. It will be found also that, taken as a whole, ther i are only about forty Sumarian places noted emt of some !'>0 or 500 places in western Palestine. The Jewish hatred of the Samaritans rose in thc eirly Christian period to so great a pitch that the Mishnic doctors avoided even mentioning tin- name of Samaria. Thus in the Talmud alto? gether only some half dozen Samari'an lawns are noticed. Is describing Pal? estine thc Mishna divides it into Judea, daldee, and Peru s, leaving out all mention of Samaria, It la just possible thst long before this an omission may have been purposely made by the carly transcribers of thc Biblical book of j Joshua in regard to Samaria. At all Brents, the meagre record which it con? tains is richly supplemented by the Samaritan book of Joshua, which bungs down the history of Israel from tbe date of the conquest to the time of Saini.el, ii hose piSusaMBor, Ell, was. Iron) a Samaritan point of view, lb' earliest schismatic, and the founder of a new and heretical temple at Shiloh in opposition to that built by Joshua on Mount '.eri/.im. The divine glory rested on Gerixim for two hundred mil sixty yours, ot during tbs reign of nine successors of Joshua, the schism be? tween the children of Judah and the orthodox, a* the Samaritans call them selves, tlating from the tune of Sin, nfttr thc death of Samson. Thc book opens much in accordance with the bildical narrative, but DO le - than lour chapters are dsroted to the history of Balaam and his death, being an enlargement of one biblical -. ci sc. '1 lu conquest of Scbscbsm by Joshua contains an account of the miraculo is discomfiture of the enemy, and of a let? ti r sent by him announcing it to Elea? zar the priest, fastened to the wing> of a doic. lt contain* aho the ace mut of a new league ag4inst the children of Israel under a king called Saubac. in conjunction with the Kings of five other towns, which can all now be identified. A thrilling nar? rative of the battle which lakes pince betWSSB Joshua and these King* at Kl Sejjun. en the ancient Megiddo 'Arum geddos), is slso given. With tins epi? sode the history of thc war ends. The chief value of the book lies, however, in thc light it throws upon the ancient geography of Samaria. Out of a total of thiity-t'iic places mentioned in it. thirteen are within the confines of Sa? maria, and most of these are not to bc found in the Dible. The Samaritan chronicle goes back te the beginning, ard gives the astro nomir-al reckoning from Adam. Some of its topographical details ari- of much value. Thus it contain* a list of twenty-two towns where the High Priest who succeeded Tobiah reside I, all being apparently in Samaria as far as they can lie identilie 1. It is known that in the second am! third cent iries the Samaritfns were in a flouriabing condition, and had colonies in Egypt, and even a synagogue in Rome. The chronicle gives their p OB BBB ai ma in Palestine as allotted by thc High Priest Baba the Oreat. ahou' 160 years aller the destruction of Jerusalem. 'I his description is interc tiing, at it BSSmfl i" include all Palestine, with thc exception ol' J'-.dcii proper, to the mountains of which the Jews are hy this description confined. At a later peiiod the chronicle girea a list of those tOBSI which were in? habited by the Santaritena after tbe Hegira. This is | '.rriod when \cry j little is known of this nation. The f places mentioned extend nearly over j tiie wht'le of Palestine outside ol'Judea, I and colohies are also monti.me.I in I Damascus. Cairo, and Itaalhek. Theie j is a ruin about live milos fruin Haifa j called Keir Samir, or the town ol' the Samaritans, which I occasionally visit to grub for inscriptions, which was one of their colonies. Those atOeraraud j ttaza lasted till thc present century, ! but none are te he found now outside j of Nablous. It is only to bf expected | that the chroni -le should centre all the holy places of the Samaritans at Shechem or Nablous. The fifth article of the Samaritan creed was the assertion that Gerizim was the chosen abode of Cod upon earth. Here Adam and Seth iaise 1 al? tars; here Melchisedec, servant of the Most High God, was met bj Abraham ? for Ceri.'im the Samaritans hold to the piescnt clay is the highest mountain in the world, the only one not covered by the flood. Here Abraham ollered up Isaac, the very spot being shown oa the eastern brow of the mounuin ; and, indeed, as Dean Stanley has argued, it is as likely to bs herc as at Jerusalem, j as Josephus and the Talmudists allirm. : Oerizim was also the site of Jacob's I vision, and. finally, it was ou Geriziin. I and not Ebal, just opposite, as stated I in tbe Bible, that, according t.. the ' Samaritans. Joshua ercctod, tirst an altar, afterward the tabernacle, and lastly a temple. The fourth and last of the known ancient sacred books of the Samaritans ia the Irs ar ssl manuscript, lt onaiim j ol' 217 leaves, containing the law from tbe 2'.'th verse of the tirst chapter of Genesis to the blessing of Moses in Deuteronomy. It is muth worn: the ' letters ere not so smell ss those of Abishua's Roll, nor as large as those of the later Roll. The hand is steady and uniform, and the character of the letters indicates that it is of very an? cient dato. A note at the end of tbe book of Numbers connects the manu? script with a story in the Samaritan book of Joshua. It runs: "lt came out from the fire br tho power of the Lord to the hand of tha King of Babel in the presence of Ze rubbabel, the Jew, an I was not burnt. Thank* be to the Lord for the law of tantana" VICE-PRESIDENTS. SEVERAL BITS OF HISTORY. ?low ihe Vi**s-r*r*siH**is sf m. I uni *tai-s Dirri aa! Were Barlr.1. A Washington correspondent, wri? ting to the Clevelsnd Lea<Ur, says: Five vice-Presidents died in office, and in every case the deceased has been over sixty years of agc. George Clin? ton, the Vice-president wah Madison, who died in 1Hll!, was seventy-four years old. Elbridge derry, who be? came Vice-president at the next elec? tion, died in D< l-l at the age of seventy; William R. King, Vice-president with Franklin Fierce, died at sixty-seven in 1X5:!, and Yice-Prcsident Henry Wilson, who died attie in 1*7.), was sixty-three years old at that time. Three of these \ i c-1'iesiilents have died in November, and the other two tn April, and, strange to say, the dates of their deaths are almost at thc same time of the month, (ieoipe (linton died April 20, and Wil? liam K. King on April 17, Henry Wil? son died on the 22d of November. El? bridge Gerry OB the 2 id of November, and Thomas A. Hendricks on the 25tb of November. Thc first vice-presiden? tial death was that of George Clinton. lt took place herc at Washington, ami his death was the tirst occa? sion of the great destroyer's enter? ing the high offices of the Gov? ernment. He had been the Vice president for neail i eight years, serving one term under Mallison ami ono under Thomas Jefferson. Ile was as much, if not more, noted in the politics of the time than Vice-President Hendricks in those ol to-day. He-ginning life as a sailor in a privateer, he had been a brigadier-general of the Revolution, a member of thc Provisional Congress, and for eighteen years Governor of Nett York. He died at.Washington on thc Suth, and was buried here in thc Con? gressional cemetery on the -1st of No? tt mber. In 1812 such a thing as keep? ing a corpse for weeks wa- unknown in this country, and both Gerry and Clin? ton weio buried thc next day after their deaths. Thc time Clinton died Washington city contained un? der ten thousand people, and tho fune? ral could not have been avery grand one. The body was taken on its way to the grave from the city to tho Capi? tol, anti hero a rc-t ol half an hour was taken. '1 hence it marched onward is a martial parade. A company of militia preceded tho hcar-e. and the eight pall? bearers who carried thc cotlin from tbs hearse to thc grave were all Revolu? tionary soldiers. The Senate attended in a body, ami on their return to the Capitol resolved that the \ ne-Fresi deiit's chair in the Senate cbimbet b< shrouded in black during the session of Congress tht r, assembled, and that each senator should wear mourning in the shape of a band of crape on the arm for thirty day s. 'lin- second vice-presidential death Occurred two years later, and Ma ii -nu's Administration showed the cu t'ous coincidence ol two vice-Presidents dying during its continuance. Mr. Gerry had prcsidi d mer the- Senate on the dey preceding bia death, anti he ate break? fast at Mrs. Wilson's bosrding-bouse that morning as usual, saying hs (sit well, but had a slight oppression of the chest. After breakfast he walked out to do soaaa business at one of thc Gov eminent departments. Ile had gone but a short distance when he be iStne indisposed, and took a carriage to rt turn. When the carriage refined bil boarding-house he was found to Ire insensible, ami on being taken from it be ; spired without a groin ot' a si:;h. This was between 10 and ll o'clock in tht morning. The Senate at once ad? journed, but the House continue! its session, though it adjourned for the fu? neral next flay. The funeral took ph-e at 3 o'clock, and from the InleUij of that tlate I see that the Kev. Ob - tiiah Drown pronounced the funeral ser? vice. Gerry was buried like Clinton, in the Congressional cemetery, and though in his day he was one of thc greatest of men, not a do/-en statesmen in this capital city have seen his monument or know that he lies here. Ile was a graduate of Harvard college, a delegate to the Continental Congress, a signer af tbe Declaration, and one of the makers of our Constitu? tion, though he refused to sign it. He had been several times in Congress, once Governor of Massachusetts, and also Minister to France before he was elected Vice-President, and his wh de career had been a most stirring one. Dining his early days in Congress he narrowly aacsped from the British bl? inding in a corn-field when a body ol troops captured the house where he eras staying and were searching for him. Ile was the first to Insugtuste as Governor of Massacbusutts the prc tnt political system of redistricting a State's congressional districts for po? litical purposes, and it is from Elbridge Gerry that the term " gerrymandering " Ct in- i. As a sample of the newspaper enterpri e of 181*1 and isl'J. contra .tel with that of to-day. the chief pap. r ot Washington city, where these two deaths occurred, contained about a quar? ter of a column the day after they died in legard to their .Laths. lt deicribed tl.t- funerals of both in less thin fifty li' eg, and gave only the barest details. Three dais after the death of Gerry. John Galliard. of South Carolina, was elected President pro tem. of the Senate without discussion, and the Intelligencer did not consider the situation of enough moment for an editorial. \ ice-Pit.sidcnt King did mit die in Cuba, as some papers state. He was in Cuba for his health at the time of his election, and had re-igned from the Serate some time before on accouut of ill health. He had consumption, and at the time he was sworn in before a Consul in Cuba he did not expect to live, and had to bo prevailed upon to take the oath. Ile was too feeble to stand alone at the time, and had to be supported while it was administered. I He sailetl for America, and grew worse during the voyage. When he lauded ; in Alabama it was evident that he would netcr get to Washington. j He eiied the clay after he lan 1 eil. The departments were not ' closed here in honor of h's death, and he 'lid not have a public fuiiera'. He was the first bachelor ever elected to om of the two highest otlices of the i nation, and he had long boen a lanstOT. j having served for more than ten years as President pro tampon of the Senate \ before he was elected Vice-Presi lent. j Like Hsndricks, he had leen a member of a Constitutional Convention af his State, and he was elected to his tirst temi in the "enate during the year in which Viee-President Hendricks was born. He was for thirty years % Knited Ststcs senator, snd had twenty-four j ears of continuous service there. In sddition to this, he served five years in the lower house, and two years as Min? ister to France. Ho was six feet tall, and very erect. Ho nas a good talker, and was, probably, the greatest reminis? ce nce-man <>f his latter days. Thc last vice-presidential 'bath be? fore that of Hendricks was that of Vice* President Wilson, who tlicd here m Washington just about ten years ago. Ile bsd been sick for some time, and at Nen York had had an operation per? formed in which his spin* wa- setrcd. Hemming to BT*nbsajRBW after the ' operation, he udiscrieUj took a wiroi hath in the Senate bath-room. This weakened bim, and his system did not recover from it. He was taken down sick st his boarding-house, and shortly after? ward died. His death occurred at 8:05 o'clock Mondsy morning, November 22, |876a The cause was set down as spoplexy. During his last hours bc, like Hendricks, was working* upon a volume of memoirs or history, and he boped for these to Icsve some property. Ilessid in his last hours that he would like to finish his book. Shortly before ho ilicil be jin kui up a hymn-book, in tbe front of which his wile's picture was pasted, and gazed at it for a long time. Fifteen minutes before he died he heard of the death of Senator Ferry, of Connecticut, BBB it is believed that tbs knowledge of the death of one of hts dear friends hastened his death. The death of Terry hail occurred the day or night before, and his friends hail deferred telling him of it until thc last moment. Ah morning went on ami the time for tho newspa? pers to come approached, it was seen that it would be impossible to keep the news from hun longer. Ile was told of it and was greatly shocked to heir it. r'iftcen minutes later he was dead. Ile spoke "f his long life just before ho died, and said : '? Sines I first came to the Senate eighty-three of the members who lirst sat with me in the Senate have passed away, and i don't suppose any living man, except, perhaps, Ham? lin, can say that." Vi(*e-Pre*idcni Wilson had a gnat funeral here, and he ma carried with solemn celebrations to Booton. 1 think his body lay in state in Independence Hull in Philadel I bia, and at Boston he Was received with ;zreat honor. There are many curious facts in A mei kan history. Here we have the three Vice-presidents, Gorry, Hen? dricks, and Wilson, dying in Novem? ber at dates Blatch Blight all come in i singh' week. No President, either :n or out of ollice, has died in November. though -ix have died in .Inly sod lour in June. Garfield died in September, Lincoln in April, Taylor in July, and Harris, n in April. Two Vice-Presi? dents* have been indicted for treason. 'I In se were Aaron Butt -id John r. Brackinridgo. '-nc Vice-presi? dent, Jobfl C. Calhoun, has re? signed his ollice. ami seven men have bold both presidential snd vn'e-prcsi dcntial '-hairs. John Adams, Washing tim's vice-President, succeeded him in tin-White- House. Jefferson, Adams's Vice-President, did likewi.-e, and M-ir tin Yan Burro, one of Jackson's Vice Presidents, was his successor. Th.* other four became Preeidei ts by death. 'Hui were Tyler, Fillmore, Johnson, and Arthur. lill.- On al I.no ((Ul killin. | Jon i mil ni Som mei rc, If the srtny and nary officers of the I mil n States who arc still invest! g ii i: g tl,. ?? great gun question " could ' lest their minda ol' ail pre h "-. pro* fi U-ionsl ami hat ional, and speak freely, tiny would arouse a storm of indig? nation iti some quarters; f,,r tin. would be compelled to say that the best way to acquire a supply of the liiT^'c-t and latest style- of steel ord? nance, good ami cheep, is to buy them of Krupp. '1 lie famous gun-maker of Pruasis fills orders from Russia, Tur? key, Italy. Austria, China, snd other countries of Europe and Asia. The German empire owes no little of her Strength and security to bis unrivalled artillery. Esglsnd has lie; Armstrong and Ki ance her Schneider. Those tri) s are not customers of Krupp. I Bel? inga of pride, jealous*. sn I rivalry pre? vent them from buying in German gr.ns which are superior to those i their own manu fat ture. Tho rea why thc foundries ol Essen turn out the best "guns in tho world srevery simple. Krupp, the able and vigilant head of tho establishment, has devote I his life to the study and making of vb heaviest guns for ships of war and ii coast defences. It has become bia spe? cialty. He has the largest and best equipped works of the kind in any country. He has the greatest number of mined and expert hands rn all his departments. Possessing his own ia-' coal and iron mines in easy and cheap communication with b I foundries, hoi* able to compete with arsry rival in tho matter of price. These acknowli facts baie given him the lead in tht gun-making business. Thahighly-rMpcctablacommissionars who are investigating the subject for our Government know all these tl better than any other American-. And yet they would consider it an imperti? nence, if not an unpatriotic step on t lui i part, to advise our Government to Older all the guns that are wanted from Krupp, pay for them, and say no more : about it. instead of carrying out the ' gigantic scheme of starting a ?? na i Donal gun-foundry." The Krupp ! I ron-Works have Leen ironing up to their present magnitude and perfec? tion nine 1810. They cannot bo dupli? cated ni completeness and excellence iu lite, ten, or fifteen years, BO matter how linn h money should bo appropri? ated for the works. There are. it is true. plenty of fund* in thc Federal Treasury to pay for such expensive apparatus as steam-hammers, which, with their in > tive-power. foundation-beds, and scces loriea complete, cost hundred* of ibo -- sands of dollars apiece, lint after all thc plant has been provided th-:reis still needed the skill which conies only from long practice. The expense, thc deity, and all the dillicultics incident to the manufacture of giant guns are so well understood by foundrymen in the I'nited States that some of them have frankly cousssllod the Advisory Hoard to report against the scheme of a ?' na? tional -un-fuindry." But, for the reasens we have given, it is hardly to be expected that they will do this. And vet. if they report in favor of such an enterprise and their recommendation is adopted, the country will have been ccuiunitted to the worst possible Hietho 1 of procuring an effective armament at short notice. If America declines to buy the best guns in the cheapest foreign market, her only proper alternative is to give out contracts for them at home. Although not a single steel gun has ever been made in this country, native ingenuity, faith, and courage are equal to the task. The proprietors of two large steel-works have declared themselves ready to at? tempt it if the Government will " make it an object" for them. They must have contracts for a great many guns at liberal prices before they will provide the special am! costly plant required. Delay.-, and disappointments would be inevitable. Dui it might be hoped that alter a number o years American en? terprise would bc able to turn out great guns equal to thc bent lhat could he imported. If they cost far more than Krupp's producta we should at least have the satisfaction of boasting that they were ?* home-made." Germany understands thc economies of war better than any other nation, and her best guns are supplied by a private con? tractor?Krupp. France relies on Schneider and F.ngland OS Armstrong tor the finest specimens of artillery procurable at home. If America per? sists in the idea of producing her own steel gun.-, she should follow the exam? ple of those great countries. She should trust to the indomitable spirit of pri? vate citizens to manufacture?with suf? ficient fncoiir*g?titent from th-i Got* rinmsnl?all lbs lui I*a*8 gtttti ;hat 4 alie wanta, THE MISSISSIPPI.
