Princeton College does not scatter her degrees as favors to rich men.

If the cor Thomas Skdiwn, president of the Sloss Iron and Steel Company of Alabama says: It Is a plain business proposition and all men in the South engaged In factoring must be protectionists. Why? To give the manu laborer higher wages in Alabama? That seems prepos terous. Such a proposition as that has never been advanced by the most unrea sonable protectionists. To enable the Southern mills to pay dividends? Iron can be made cheaper in the South than anywhere In the world, sylvanla and Ohio mills are suffering because the Southern iron drives their product out of the market. What is the need of a prohibitory tariff in the South then? Higher profits, boodle, legalized booty. There cannot possibly be any other reason for protectionism in the South. President Sodden must stand confessed and he would bo confused too if the advocate of the robber tariff conld feel a sense of shame. But he has excuse and it is that "sectional lines" must be broken. A protectionist can invent more excuses, apologies, special pleas and spicious answers than caught robbing a chicken dreamed of.

Some UellecUons Iirawii Out By a Circu lar Letter. To the Editor of the St. Louis Republic, Allow too, in answering your th ree in terrogntories, to take them together, and to say, in general terms, that it seems to me a waste of moral force and party strengh to enter upon a discussion, at tliis time, of any merely personal aspects which may, or may not, attach them selves to 1802. With ns three years is a political gen eration. Three years before Polk. Taylor, Pierce, Lincoln, Hayes, Garfield, Cleve land and Harrison were inaugurated Presidents of the Cuited States; their names were either unheard of in national allairs, or were uuconstdered in connec tion with the Presidency. The country is too large for personal intrigues to do much toward the crea tion of a Chief Magistrate. Even when it was smaller they only contrived to defeat themselves. They always will. Organized ideas, pressed to the front by the interests of great masses of the people, govern ; and these, balking cal culations, will make their own lenders, when the time arrives for determining the ultimate details of movt ment. The man, however eminent and conspicuous, who seriously looks to his nomination and election to tho Presidency may not ho in.-.ptly likened to one who should ex Mtlsh out of the Atlantic Ocean for tho pest with a pin hook the tbket cailin capital prize in a lottery to be drawn tn the moon. Ah it is toy purpose to support the nominee of tho next National Democratic Convention, I esanot recon cile it with ray sense of duty to commit myself in advance against any Democrat in good standing, and, as far ns Governor Hill is concerned, I am sure you do him great injustice.

Judge Duffy "of New York says that the tramp is the product of misapplied and foolish charily. In this he is wrong. The tramp came before charity. Charity has had something to do in degrading him and making him content with his condition, but it did uot produce him. The tramp is the product of law. He is the child of society. Ho is with its be cause he cannot help himself, and society I recognizes this by build mg noorhouses to take caro of Immigration has helped to in him. crease the evil, by compelling us to take care of both our own tramps and those produced by similar conditions in Europe: but immigration would bo powerless to effect harm in this direction did not so ciety persist in legislating against any change. Every effort to give the tramp a chance, to change him from a pauper to a wealth producer, has been opposed by the governing classes. He is refused the chance to support himself, and society is compelled to bear an additional burden on his account. The tramp being the product of law, he will disappear when the laws creating him are repealed. Everything that re stricts exertion, that chains the indi vidual to a locality, that deprives him of the right to work and to freely exchange his products, aids in the creation of the tramp and helps to propagate the long train of evils that follow in his footsteps. The cure for the tramp then is liberty— liberty to attack nature and wring from her a living: liberty to make such a dis position of his products as seems to him the most desirable ; liberty to do any thing that does not conflict with the liberty of others. The repeal of restrictions marks the advance of civilization. Freedom, happi ness and prosperity go hand in hand whenever and wherever human barriers that prevent the free exercise of human rights—the right to work and the full re ward of that work—are torn away. Everybody Hate* a Liar. Williamsport Sun and Banner. Free trade Democracy has hoarsely shouted its denunciation of the appoint ment of Mr. J arret t of Pittsburg as Consul to Birmingham. Tbe Pbiladel phia Press shows why they hate him so in the following: "John Jarrett, the new consul to Birmingham, will be a good sample to English workingmen of what a »ober, industrious man can do for himself in a protectionist country like the United States. Ten or twelve years ago Mr. Jarrett was apuddler in Pennsyl vania. Hard work, studious habits and honorable ambition have brought him abundant reward, and now he goes to England under circumstances, well cal culated to persuade foreign-laboring men that American protection is a pretty good thing.—Elmira Advertiser. "Tlie Advertiser is at fault. The Democracy does not hate Jarrett; it despises him. The Democracy despises Jarrett because he is a liar—and a self convicted one at that. Jarrett declared in the last campaign that the tariff regu lated wages and kept them high. Pre viously before a United States Senate committee he testified that the tariff had nothing to do with wages, and that wages were kept up by tho labor organ! zations and their efforts, and by them only. Does the Advertiser endorse tbe sending of a liar to Europe to act as United States Consul?—Philadelphia Record. TemperiuiOA Benefited. Philadelphia Ledger. The anti prohibition vote on Tuesday is not, we repeat, to be taken as a victory for the enemies of temperance. On the contrary, it is a distinct utterance for upholding that admirable help to tem perance, the Brooks Act, which put an end to unbridled liquor selling. Even the anti prohibitionists fought under tbe high license the chaotic state of things which tbe adoption of the amendment might have brought about. Many citizens who voted "Wet" would have been ranged on the side of resistance to the liquor traffic, under the banners of the "Dry," had it not been clearly understood that the Amendment if' carried, might, for an undefined time, remove all the wholesome restraints upon the sale of liquor. The careful work of the Judges who supervised the issue of Uceuses in Philadelphia is showing by its fruits that a stringent license law can be enforced. There is every reason of self interest, to say nothing of self-respect, now at work, compelling tavern keepers to carry out the law. Liquor sales to con firmed drunkards, to minors or on Sun days, are not easy now,for the conscious ness that each man's business interests will be imperilled, unless ho obeys the law, has become one of the most impor tant influences in this business. banner, and against Foreljjn Markets a Necessity.

JEFFERSON DAVIS' OLD SLAVE. llo Was Probably the Wealthiest Colored Man in the South. The wealthiest colored mail in the south since the war, who wns born a slave and set free by the emancipation proclamation, was Den Montgomery, of Mississippi. Uo be longed to Mr. Joseph Davis first, and then to Mr. Jefferson Davis. For liefere tho war lie was the secretary of the Hon. Joseph Davis, Mr. Jefferson Davis' eider brother. The Davises largo planters and owned tho "Hurri cary-s" estate, consisting of three great cotton plantations at tho extreme lower end of Warren county, Miss., and about eighteen or twenty miks lielow Vicksburg. There were between 12,000 and 15.000 acres of the finest land on the Mississippi river in these plantations ami 750 slaves. All the letters respecting tlio business of those places for thirty years were written by Den Montgomery. He frequently went to Now Ork«ns on business for tho Davises and carried with him once $'. 10,000 in money. Ho traveled with Mr. Davis all over tho north, and oould have run away fifty timer, had ho wished. But ho remained faithful and loyal to the last. Tue Davises were noted for their kindness to their slaves. They had finer "quarters" on their plantations, probably, than any planters in tho south, excepting the Hampton's. The y kept a physician «1 the places, and in every "colore l p -oplo, railed.

This mouey ho carefully win to Mr. Davis, lu 18U!, when the slaves were eman cipated, Mr. Davis sold the "Hurricane*" to Ben -Montgomery for $500,000 in gold. It has been said that this side was only u ruse to save these splendid estates from confiscation. Whether this was true or not, when tho Federal "agents for tlie protection of aban doned property and lands" came to take posses sion of tiie Hurricanes they found Ben Mont gomery with a title so strong and valid that it could not bo upset, and they loft him alone in peaceable possession. After tho war be continued to plant these places with groat success, making every year from 1,100 to 3,200 bales of cotton, besides an abundance of coni and bay. In IS74 or 1875, there still being a balance duo on tho pay ments, Mr. Du vis took tho property back, but left Bon Montgomery in full charge. These places yield a very handsome annual income now to Mr. Davis, who, though ho prefers to live on tho Mississippi! seashore at Beauvoir, yet visits his old home once a year and sp«aids a few weeks with his friends of fifty years ago. As I have said, he was a very kind muster, and, therefore, whenever ha goes back to his former resilience, all the old time Davis negroes within fifty miles around come to sue "Old Marse Jeff" and have a great time.

Uses of Mirrors. The use of a mirror for reflecting the sun seems to run from the extremes of boyish roguishners in flashing tlie sun's rays upon tho eyes of some companioiv—or even older persons, it tbe distance be sufficient—and then reaches to the other extreme of using it to Sash tho sun's rays for heliotrope signals in tho coast survey or army service, or to measure the deflection of a galvanometer needle. But there is a vast middle space of practical usage of mirrors, apart from that of individual vanity, which is rarely thoagbt of. In the boyhood days of the writer he re members looking fifto a new pump which had been thoroughly ipdked tbe night before "| s to be placed in the well, by means of rocks which were pushed in about mid way and wedged a garnit each other. Various plans for their removal had been suggested, the most practicable of which was to saw tho pump in bwo and join it together again somehow. The writer suggested that a mirror be brought, and the sunlight flashed in to reveal the position of tbe stones. A bur of wrought iron was bent to a hook, suitable to tho condition of affairs, and extricated the »t#nes one by ono, tho mirror showing the openings of light go that tbe person could work efficiently and intelligently.

"Yon ore mistaken," says the ac quaintance, and the silver dollar is forthcom ing, marked and handed over. Then the grave old man rattles it with one of his own and pockets both. "Give my dollar back," says tho acquaintance. "No,'' interrupts the old man.
