that he eanct be good, or be would not

he may be uneertain whether he was elect

the decision there reached; and, inally;
that, though he may be doing wrong

If Hayes is altogether bad and selfish, be
most be very wise in his generation. He
must have seen more clearly than other
leading politicians of his party that the
war was finally over and the Soath for
ever disenthralled. To this day, and not
withatanding the frightfL Aleafetlon of
Hayes from their councils, Messrs Blaine
and Butler by no means abandon the idea
of sectional politics, the hope of "firing the
Northern heart," the dream of .carpet bag
rule in the South sad a bloody-shirt pare
dice in Washington.
Which theory accounts for Haye&t For our
part we incline to the third theory, that there
is a little of both explanations in the truth.
We suppose that Mr. Hayes found himself
so nearly beaten in his own State, that he
had been so badly frightened at the prob
ability of defeat, and that he escaped that
late by such herculean efforts only, that
the speedy destruction of the Republican
party suggested itself to him as a very
grave probability.
But, even so; it required great courage,
frmness, resolution, for a man in his posi
tion to cut entirely loose from the tradi
tions of his friends and inaugurate a new
policy of his own-a policy which might
alienate his own party without concilia
ting the other, and thus leave him without '
a following. And could it be mere selfish
ness that would prompt a man to so has
ardous a step t It is not probable. He a
most have been sustained by the cons
ciousness of doing right. He must have
felt that it was his duty to see self- a
government re-established in the South,
let the consequence to himself be what
it might.
From present appearances Mr. Hayes
has acted as a gentleman, a statesman and e
a patriot. No man since the day of
Washington has ever done anything at all
to compare with his record in boldness,
magnanimity and justice, and to attribute
it all to personal or party sefihtnees would
be absurd. He had declined in advance a
second nomination and the probable out
come of his experiment was that his own
party would reject him, while, as a Re
publican, he could not go to the Demo
At any rate let us not quarrel with the
bridge that has carried us over. And not
only has Mr. Hayes achieved civil liberty
for the South but he favors a policy of the
utmost financial liberality in our regard. It
is said that the following paragraph from
the Courier Journaal has been approved by
him as exactly expressing his views:
All the aid we can get from the general Gov
ernment we must have, and we must so or
ganise our policy as to secure what justly and
rightly belongs to us. Our publio men
most, be selected with that view. Our public
policy most be shaped to that end. The re
construction of the broken levees of the Mis
sissippi and the construction of a railway to
the Pacific upon the thirty-second line of lat
itude are essential to the Booth.
It is to be hoped that the Southern
Democracy will act prudently and wisely
in this regard. It is certainly un-Demo
cratic to favor Government interference in
works that are not strictly national and
public, but what Government may not do
as a right, it may do as an obligation. It
rained our levees, and ought to rebuild
them. This is a debt. It is a good thing
to have a President who will not veto such
measures, as Mr. Tilden would probably
have done.
We hope to see the more Conservative
portion of the Southern Democracy form a
friendly and cordial alliance with Presi
dent Hayes and his Republican fol:owing,
preparatory perhaps to a more solid com
bination afterwards. At the same time it
wrould be well if the unscrupulous element
of the Southern Democracy-self constitu
ted party managers who now often force
miserable and incompetent nominations on
the part3 -would get up a counter alliance
with thie Blaine and Butler Republicans.
A bad opposition is better than none, for a
party without opposition naturally falls
into the hands of corrupt intrigaers.
The Wells Problem.
An article recently published in the
North American Review entitled "How to
regain our National Prosperity" and cred
ited to the pen of Mr. David A. Wells, has
attracted a great deal of attention. Mr.
Wells does not, so far, attempt to solve
his own problem, though he may do so
later, bat he gives his explanation for the
over abandance of unemployed labor.
His theory is that the immense improve
ments recently made in labor-saving
machinery have resulted in obtaininog the
same amount of production as formerly
with a great deal less employment of
human labor, and that, consequently, just
This Is a revival of as old idsde I
which we had seppeed exploded half "a
century ago. The spisalag Jenay, the
steam eopgio, the ratedlg treit-eseh was
gonlog to throw eountlae men, not to speak
of hones, 6at of employment. There was I
great popular excitement supplemented
sometimes by viqlenee, but time went on
and it was found that where an inven- I
tion threw one man out of work it cre
ated employment for a dozen others I
directly or Indirectly. Even horses were I
in much greater demand as adjuncts to I
railroads tban they had formerly been as I
principal motors.
And that result was in aecord with cor
rect principles of supply and demand.
Improved machinery creates wealth;
wealth creates wants not dreamed of be I
fore. The wants of poverty are necessi- I
ties: the wants of wealth are luxuries. It I
a great Iaodowner gets his crops m de
with one-fourth the number of men for- I
merly required his profits are, of course, I
much greater. What does he do with the r
surplus money 1 Leave it in bank t Cer- I
tainly not. He builds more barns and
fences, or employs fancy gardeners and
constructs handsome improvements, or
spends his money in a more luxurious
mode of life than formerly.
It will be observed that machinery gen
erally invades only the ruder and simpler
fields of human labor. It is rather t
strength than skill than is replaced by it.
It is rather the necessaries of subsistence i
than the refinements of art that are sought
to be supplied through its agency. Where I
shoes are to be made by the thousand on
one pattern for the poor, machinery is their '
beneficent friend, while fastidious ladies h
and gentlemen spurn its assistance and
demand hand work; where cotton prints
are struck off by the millions of yards with °
steam power, for the poor, the rich are
hunting after laces and tapestries grown
Into a kind of life under the patient skill °
of human fingers. t
There are then two legitimate results
from the introduction of labor saving ma
lest; it economizes wages to a certain s
extent and to that extent enriches either
the producer or the consumer, leaving
just so mach to be spent on something
else :
2od; it displaces the bewere of wood
and drawers'of water and creates a de
mand for work rquniring intelligence and 1
We think Mr. Wells will have to try it
over again. For our part we are satisfied
with the hard times theory of origin that
we had supposed to be by this time uni
versally conceded as the correct one, viz.:
reckless expenditure. Everybody bad
been making money in an inflated war
style ard spending it lavishly ; after a
while, the opportunities having pat-"
asay, speculation became less practicable
and money-making lees rapid, but people
woent on spending in the same lordly way.
"Great expectations" was the role, credit
was abundant, debts multiplied, finally
the crash.
People have had sore heads ever since and
have been studying principally the problem
of how to pay,their debts. Everybody is
crazy to get out of debt. From extreme
lavishness folks have collapsed into almost
sordid meanness-not that they want to
be mean, but they are in mortal dread of
debt. When those same debte are once
paid, or nearly so, they will commence
spending money again. Then-new houses
and fine ones, new carriages, new coats, new
pictures, plenty of work.
But when ?
First let as know when agriculture is
nearly out of debt, for agriculture is the
one, controlling interest in America.
The Secret Alliance.
There are those who seem to think that
England will be bought off by the allies,
Russia and Prussia. The price, they say,
is to be Egypt. This is the sop to be thrown
to the Lion and it is to be recognized as
"the high road to the Eest," "the Key to
the Indian Empire." This bargain being
consummated, BRouals will swallow Torkey
and OermMany will asses Aastria.l With
England to beok them in this little arrange
ment, everything would be smiling, for
France is too busy with her domestio
diequietodes at this time to enter the field
against sueach an al;iance, espeeially as
Italy-that is the Italian Government-is
heart and soul with Bismarck.
This is a neat programme and has a
chance of working if England has gene

Levity of a Correspondent.
In oar issue of the 31 Jane ilt., was
published a sprightly and entertaining
letter from Quito. As we stated in a few
introductory lines, this letter bhad not been
wuiaen for pubication, was no- Sdre..,
to the Monxano STAR and was merely a
private communication which the recipi
eat judged sufficiently Interesting for
general reading.
We.ind to our regret that our confrere,
the' staunch and indomitable rkesman's
.Tournal, was not pleased with a certain
tone of levity In wbhicoh reference was
made to Louis Venillot and partially to its
own editor. It struck ua that the refer
ence was rather good. natured and joeose
than serious, never supposing that an
ardent Catholic like the writer would take
lssue earnestly with such champions of his
Church as those named. That affairs in
Ecuador might easily be somewhat misun
derstood in Paris or New York is not to be
wondered at; that such a fact should be
harshly criticised would be hyperceitical
and uncharitable.
Our respedted confrere has been probably
misled as to the animus of the letter by a
mistake into which it has fallen as to its
authorship. It was not written by an "Ig
norantine" or any other kind of "Brother ;"
the writer, though a priest, does not be
long to any " Congregation," he was
not trying to ride "two horses" or
hold with both parties, for he was a
stranger traveling through' the country
without local affiliations or prejudices.
It is true that our friend's friend seems
to have had a rather poor opinion of the
energy of the good prelate who was poise
oned, ogr, Checa Barbsa. Th, Journal
says ia.dignatly : " The holy Archbishop
has been assassinated for the faith." Our
letter writer did not cast a doubt upon that
theory. He says: "How admirable now
seems Bismarc. who sends Bishops only as
far as prison, while here they are sent
straight to their lasting home," and he
quotes the funeral orator as saying that the
Archbisbop "bad been poisoned by the
impious.' The impression is clearly
made by the letter that his Grace was a
man of great personal piety and even as
ceticism, who, " wore a cilice under his
well fitting rich garments."
We hope that, upon the discovery of its
mistake as to the authorship of the corres
pondence, our respected confrere will mod
ify its estimate of the correepondent's ani
readers all know the Church at the Pass was
entirely destroyed by ftre last February, since
which time the Rev. Pastor, Father Georget,
has been actively engaged in collecting funds
for theconstruction of another edifice. Though
he has succeeded as well as might have been
expected, considering the general poverty
which exists throughout the diocese of Nat
ches. the collections are still far short of the
amount required. As a Church at the Pass is
indispensible not only for the accommodation
of the residents, but also for that of the hun
dreds of families that spend the summer there,
a number of highly respected and influential
ladies have determined to hold a fair for the
benefit of the building fund. It will be
opened on Saturday, August 4th, and will be
continued Sunday and Monday, 5th aud 6th
prox, and on the same days the two following
weeks. As a number of New Orleans ladies
will assist the ladies of the Pass in the pre
paration and management of the entertain
ment, there can be no doubt that it will afford
a most excellent occasion for innocent enjoy
With this great additional attraction the
Pass will be ten times more popolar than here
tofore, and the Satnrday evening and SuBanday
morning excuresion trains will scarcely be re
quired to go beyond that point, as few ex
oursionists will be able to reslst the tempta
tion to stop and enjoy the pleasures of an even
lug or two at the Fair.
Scientifico opinion in Franoe is by no means
unanimous as to the desirability of creating an
inland sea in Algeria. M. Naudin read a pa
per on the nsubject at the last meeting of the
Acaodemy of Bciences, in which he said its sauni
tsry effeats would be deplor-ble. He asserts
that to fill the basin with salt water would be
equivaPlent to reproducing in Algeria all the
worst featnres of the Pontine marshes. Capt.
Roudaire admits that even in the centre there
would not be more than eighty feet of water,
and the whole couast line would have so little
water that it would be little better than a sand
bank, with an admlxture of salt and fresh
water, upon which the strong solar light and
tropical heat would act in the most deleterious
manner for two-thirds of the year, canlng a

Originating in sin, pride and disobedience, it
has continued to this day to be more or less
connected with vice and vanity, and whatever
be its developement through theseaix thousand
years, it is but a silent, shameful testimony to
woman's frailty and man's dishonor.
And yet the Ag has certainly matter for oon
gratulation, inasmuh as it gave help' to Adam
and Eve in the hour of their dire necessity;
and it may well look with a little pride upon
the treacherous apple which led them into
shame, connusion and-distress. `
It would be a truly poetic fanoy to imagine
that the fig, which gave the first f4shion of
dress on earth, will bear some humble part in
the glorious fashion of "the wedding gar
monte" worn through all eternity.
In the Eset, oenturies age, it was forbidden
by law to export figs, and the person who
informed against any one violating this law
was called a syeopcat, from two Greek words,
signifying fg and to discover; and hence the
word has come to mean a talebearer or in
former, a parasite, a mean flatterer, etc. Can
any other fruit boast of furnishing to the
world an expression more signiflant or more
widely used But if it has the uneviable noto
riety of giving a name to one of the lowest of
vices, the fig can also claim the honor of hav
ing been used by the Divine Master in many
of those beautiful instructions by which He
inculcated the highest truthl and the noblest
Old Homer, in his iliad, tells nu that sge were
a favorite with the Greeks, and that Epicureans
had them prepared with milk and honey-a fact
which shows us that men's tastee have ohanged
but little in three thousand years-for figs and
cream are common delicacies upon many
Southern tables.
The fig has been made the emblem of longe
vity, because of its great wholesomeness; and
the Andanlsians, who prize this fruit highly,
have a saying which implies that on the ¢g, ifet
depends In other words, it is, to them, the
very staff of life,
In many countries in Europe, partioularly in
those old Catholic countries, where men were
taught to abhor selfishness, it was once cusetom
ary to plant the seed of every fruit plucked,
upon the high road. In this way fruit trees
abounded, and the poor had an almoner in
every tree that shaded their weary footsteps.
Here in the South, where the propagation of
the fig is so easy-it only being necessary to
put a cutting in the ground, and in a year it
will bear fruit - what comfortable results
would follow if every lover of Age would plant
one outting, in due season, of this inexpensive
and yet most delightful fruit.
Preserved figs ought to be a staple industry
of the South ;.and this delicious article would,
no doubt, find a ready market at the North.
Is is not strange that the people of a land so
rich in fruit as the Bouth, should buy all their
preserves from Eastern oitiest Hoe many
stores are there in Neor Orleans where a ous
tomer can find preserved figs or oranges of
home-made manufacture? But we need not
wonder at the lack of Southern enterprise when
we remember that for sixteen years the South
has only maintained existence by the most
heroic struggles. In " the good time coming,"
manufaotures suitable to our locality and its
products will, no doubt, spring up in every
direction; and then, certainly, among the
largest and most profitable ought to be-in the
