Marshall and Lincoln counties. The
natural advantages are all in our fa

we are inactive and undetermined
We give an extract from a lette
written by Major Wni. J. Sykes to the
members of tliis committee. He says
"This place- (Columbia) is on the
line of the Iiuisville, Nashville and
ire.it Southern lioad, 47 miles south
..I Nashville, and in one of the richest
and nio-t productive portions of Ten-m-rc.
This countv, (Maurv) as is
-tiinatcd, will furnish this year for

I' . hich would lie taken to St. Jjotiis
if v e bad a direct Narrow (iauge Hail-
road to that city. From this place to
airo, tlic terminus ot the arrow
(J.-uige from St. Ijoiu's, is 17" miles,
and from this place to Huntsville,
Ala., by Fa vctteville, is 7" miles;
making it iniy :To miles from Hunts
ville to Cairo, or 4oi miles to St. Ijou-
is. The road from Cairo to Huntsville
can lie built, ironed and efjuippefi for 2
million live hundred thousand dollars.
.io-t of the route has liecn surveyed,
and a portion of the road from this
j.l.ice to Lcwisburg, 21 miles is now

Lcwisburg has liecn running three

He had just written: "This rule is
applicable to every department of the
civn service, jisnouiuue uuoersioou
by every officer of the general Govern
ment that lie is expected to conform
his conduct to its requirements." Be
fore the mk was lry, McCrary was
hurried off to set an example of the
sincerity and earnestness of the order
by doing his liest, as a meiulier of the
Cabinet, to run the machinery of a
convention, and to falsify or silence
the true sentiments of its members !

In behalf of the corparate author
ities and citizens generallj', I wel
come you to the hospitalities of Co
lumbia ; and with the same earnest
ness and sincerity I congratulate
you upon the completion of the
Duck Kiver Valley .Railroad to
your beautiful and thriving city.
We have witnessed with pride and
pleasure the manly and heroic ef
forts you have made to break down
the barriers which have so long
hemed in and cut you off from com
mercial intercourse with the bal
ance of the world. A kind provi
dence has bestowed upon you with
a lavish hand all the natural ad
vantages of a rich soil, asalubrious
climate, timber and water power

You have a population possessed
of energy, industry, intelligence
and, indeed, all the attributes that
go to make up the ierfection of the
In this age of progress when, by
the intervention of railroads &ud
telegraphs, time and space are al
' most obliterated, it is not strange
that you have caught the inspira
tiou and are to-day putting forth
your best efforts to contribute your
part in . the development of the
grand improvements which so em
inently characterize the present
age. It is for the purpose of en
couraging you in this grand work
of internal improvement, and to
cordially invite you to a closer and
more intimate neighborship thau it
was possible for us to enjoy undei
the old order of things, that we
voluntarily come to your assist
a-pce. And we haye not contented
ourselves with mere empty words
of encouragement that can pass
away with the breath that made
them : but we feel that we have
given you substantial evidence of
our siucenty by coming, lorward
and subscribing til'ty thousand dol
lars, lor which our bouds have been
issued. The shrill whistle of the
iron horse is now daily heard re
verberatiug over your hills, mouu
tains auu uaies, arousing your
rural population to increased en
ergy and exertion in the cultiva
tiou of your rich and production
soil. iour surplus production
will no longer rot in your barn
yards and fields for the want of
transportation, but will be placed
npoa the strong back of your iron
house and conveyed to all t he com
mercial parte of the country where
they will command prices that will
amply reward you for your labor.

THE WAS ON EAYZ3.
Menacing Attitude of too Leading Sepub-
caa irapers in ine uountry.
The New York 2'ime. of Fridav.
contains a leader on the action of the
Jowa Convention, refusing to indorse
the lresident's policy toward . the
South. The article contains the as
sumption that Secretary McCrary
went to Iowa for the express purpose of
securing this indorsement, but failed.
Silence is denominateda sorry indorse
ment. The condition of the unity of
tho Republican party in low a is as
serted to In? a studied avoidanlie of the
.new-policy, and the lesson, taught is
that the party leaders in the Northern
and Western States must not hoie! to
extort the approval of a policy which
is silently acquiesced in, but which
docs not on its merits commend itself
to the judgment or feeling of the Re
publican party. The llmen asserts
that a broad dividing line ' has lieen
drawn between the Administration
and a large portion of the party on the
southern question, and that the met
ought not to lie ignored. If the Sooth
bowed any disiiosition to recipnxwte
or meet thePresident in his efforts! at
conciliation the policy ! might com
mand resiiect, but the South, on the
contrary, shows a disposition to use
the President s generosity to upbuild
the Democratic party and has no
spark of the proper appreciation of his
course. "The consequence is that the
Republicans throughout the North
find themselves mocked by a surren
der w hich brings not a single counter
vailing advantage. They have lieen
deprived of a strong position without
anv prospect of obtaining an equiva
lent." , .
This is taken here to mean that the
Times, heretofore set down as the
proliable chief organ of the dissatisfied
Republicans, will not lie available for
Mr. James F. Wilson, who seems to
have lieen the controlling spirit in the
Iowa Convention, was Maine's right
hand man at the Cincinnati Conven
tion, and was to the last . one of the
most unrelenting and bitter of the op
poiicnts to Hayes or .Rristow. He is,
a (iovernment Director of the Union
Pacific, was founierly in Congress, and
is understood to have been a lobbyist
for the last three or four years.
The action of the convention is very
gratifying to the dissatisfied Republi
cans in Washington, .and they sire
fond of expressing tliat gratification.
They jubilantly prophecy McCrary's
speedy retirement from the Cabinet.
They say he has the choice of leaving
the Cabinet or his parly, ami they are
impressed that he will choose the for
mer as the lesser sacrifice.
