Harrison is, that he goes into olliee with the good will of all the people and all tl prominent newspapers. Iheltenera is a partisan in politics, but not offen sively so. He is broad enough in his views to steer clear of snags and pit falls, lie walks circumspectly in the round of his daily life, and though com ing iu contact with many almost daily from every part of the country he does not make any enemies.

The Detroit Tribune thinks the U S. should occupy this entire continent from the North Polo to the Isthmus, and that some day it will. We have no doubt of it. All the region around the Pole would furnish us with ice that we arc likely to need. No house is large enough for two families, and there is not room enough on the North Am erican continent for several nations. Let us consolidate, have one President and one Congress and a place to colo nize our anarchists and political cranks of all kinds w here they can cool off.

This subject is of interest to Vermonters both on ac count of the writer and theme. He gives a review of the agitation of the subject from colonial times, discusses, commercial union, but holds that it is unconstitutional, thinks that political union should be sought but that Cana da should seek it. This he regards as inevitable. He points out some disad vantages of admitting a number of states-with British political ideas, and the possible European complications. The Panama Canal Co. has collaps ed beyond hope of recovery. Now at tention will be turned to the Nicaragua route. This is about 300 miles north east. The latter route is about 100 miles longer than the former, but about 140 miles of it are through navigable waters, and there are no difficulties on the remainder of the line that the en gineers cannot easily overcome. The cost of the canal is estimated at ? j0,- 000,000 and it is thought that it can be built in six years. The work of construction, it is said, will commence next spring under the direction of the Maritime Canal Co., incorporated by the legislature of Vermont at its recent session. The distance saved by pass ing th-ough it is 8,000 miles which is quite an item in sailing from New York to Puget Sound. This canal will be built by an American company and ! .

Two men killed their wives and then suicid ed. A third killed himself because of a deficit in his accounts, and a fourth did the same thing after swindling a farm er out of a large sum oi money. Two railroad t-ains were thrown from the track and several seriously and some fatally injured. A powder explosion in one place and a boiler explosion in another, and the blowing up of three nitro-glycerine magazines in another caused the destruction of much proper ty and injured many people. Worst of all was the burning of a steamer on the Mississippi near New Orleans in which thirty or forty lives were lost. It is not often that such a list can be made up for a single day. Does this indicate an advance in our civilization? in our national polities. It assumes a form different now from any previous form. Thenegioes are increasing rap idly, ami now that they have a part in politics, which they are disposed to use against the dominant political sentiment of the whiles they are not regarded with the same affection as when valued in dollars and cents. llesides, there are indications that the Southern polit ieul leaders fear that the incoming ad ministration means business and that they cannot continue to "chouse" him out of his political rights either by vio lence or fraud. There are two move nients going on in different parts of the South designed to affect the relative position of the w hite and black races. These may not be widely extended and they may he only spasmodic, and yet now they are indicativeof certain states of feeling that prevail in certain sections of that wide region. One of these movements looks to the innniirralioii of w hites so that the white race can main tain its ascendency by force of I um bers. A New Orleans paper urges this immigration scheme. I-et us have white men from Bny source, from the North or from Europe, and fill up the country and crowd back the colored race. Texas is referred to as a state in which this has been partially car ried out. It is said that in all the coun ties exeept those bordering on Louisia na the incoming of the whites hits kept the colored vote iu a minority. The question is asked, why may not a simi lar policy carried through the entire South produce corresponding results. The theory is good, but to make it a practical success white iinmi'rration most be rapid enough Jo overbalance negro growth. We apprehend that this will require a much more rapid movement of population in the direction of the SoutU than has heretofore taken place. Again, white men moving into the South must be met in a different spirit from that which has been preva lent in the past. Northern men will not make homes iu the South to any great extent until they can enjoy the same freedom of thought and speech that is permitted to them here. En joying these, their political alliliations would be with the colored people rath er than with the whites. It may be the end desired would thus be lost. We know of only one way for the whites of the South to do, and that is to deal in a just and honorable manner by all classes. No schemes will work well for a long time that are founded upon injustice. It is because of a narrow minded, vicious policy that the South has suffered in the past. She has stood in her own light, she has retarded her own growth, and whatever prosperity has come to her has been forced upon her. Southern whites must cease to devise schemes that discriminate against the colored race so long as whites and blacks are equal under the constitution. If in any of these states the blacks out vote the whites then that state, in certain sense must pass under a black man's government and the whites must submit, just as in New York or Bos ton combinations in politics bring the Irish clement to the frout and the na tive-born are ruled by the Irish. Keep race questions out of politics and let white and black alike seek the common good. The other movement looks to the emigration of the colored people. This has been undertaken on several occasions but has met w ith only limit ed success. The movement now is on the Atlantic coast and towards the north-east. A gentleman from the South has recently conducted two hun dred negroes or more from North Car olina and located them in New Jersey. This is called just a beginning. This is not undertaken for the accommoda tion of the whites but for the relief of the blacks. Whatev. r may be said of the condition of the blacks in the South generally, the gentleman who brings these negroes north tells a pitiful story of their condition in the section from folded one-half its length. The nulli fying of their votes is but the beginning of outrages. They are ostracized so cially. Every right they enjoy is con ceded grudgingly. They are kept down iu every way that ingenious ami vicious white men can devise. There is not so much violence as formerly but there is much cruelty. Colored meu are har assed, annoyed, defrauded and in some respects suffer more than while iu bond age. But it seems to us that emigra tion is a doubtful remedy. The north ern climate is not adapted to the negro. S.mie come here and thrive, but it would be necessary to chatiire habits that have coutinued through generations to render Ihein prosperous iu their new environments. The movement is not a wise one. The only sound policy for the South and tor the country is to treat the negro so that he will be willing to remain where he is. Perhaps the South will some day learn this lesson. The Portland Orcgoniin puts the thing very neatly, when it says : "The reason why it would not be good poli. tics to make Blaine secretary of state is simply that the act would make all tlio opponents and enemies of Iiluine opponents and enemies, or at least se vere and unfriendly critics, of the administration."
