A Mexioan aheep herder while round? ing up horaea in the Swoet Grass Hills ?'0 mileanorth of Columbus,Minn., has d'acovered a large cave, the opening nf which has been concealed by heavy nu derbrush. The cave, seventy feet In length, thirty-five feet in width and ten in height, was cut out of solid rock. In the center, lying aide by aide, were the well-preserved skeleton? of five human beinga. These skeletons measure from seven to seven and one half feet in length. Three knife bladea,evidently mad-? of hardened oopper, two bowl? hollowed out of granite block?, two ?tone ham? mer heads and some broken fragments of pottery were al?o found in the cave.

Evidences of dishonesty multiplied, (rillette was compelled to ask the author ities to order a survey of the work sup p s- tl to have been done in or?ler that ha might not share the responsibility if wide-n'aching fraud. A board ol engineer officers?from Oapt. Garter's own corps-composed of Gol. Gillespie, Maj. Adams, and Capt. Black, unani? mously agreed that a court-martial must be huid. Among the records ol the ottos was a box marked ' 'Personal and Private." It was op?med. It con? tained no personal papers, except half a dosen letters fnuu Carter's sister. These were not read, but with them were found strictly official papers, which should have been in the flies; also hank books?some showing deposits as high as |f 0,000 at a time ; copies of letters received and sent by Carter and ?howing his connection with the At? lantic Contracting Company, and his certificate of stock in that corporation which, it is hardly necessary to add, was given the contract for all the dredging. PLEADED STATUT! OP LIMITATION". The court-martial met. It was pre? sided over by Gen. E. S. Otis, now m command in the Philippines. There were fifteen offlOMI of the court, ?select? ed from all branches of the service, every one of whom was personally ac i|uiinted with Capt. Carter, and, if anything, prejudiced in his favor. The accused offioaf had six lawyers defend? ing him. Among other things, he pleaded the statute of limitations. Al? though this plea wan regarded as an ad mlssion of guilt, it was sustained by the court, aud only occurrences happen? ing within two years were considered. Thftse were so numerous, however, that there was no trouble in reachiog a ver? dict of guilty, with the sentence al? ready stated. Garter was not only stesling on a ? large scale, but he was guilty of petit ! irceny.

It is not worth while to print now the numerous rumora which connect the names of certain Senators with the delay in the case, and who are said to have been largely instrumental in pre? venting punishment from being moted out It is,however,worth while to say that then- ia a wide-spread interest in his case and a very general curiosity to know why the sentence of the court martial is not carried out. A Striking 3rowtli The New Yorfc Journal of Commerce finds that in August of last year the South had 8,670,000 cotton spiudles, agalnt 1,735,000 in August, lfefjo.a gain of 1,945,000 spindles in eight years, or over 100 per cent. Fifty new mills are now under construction or in prepara? tion, involving an outlay of $H,">00,000 and an addition of Too,000 new spindles. Beside? these, ?i'.t concerns aro enlarg? ing their present facilities so as to add 100,000 new spindles. Thus in five months $17.0OO,C00 of capital and 1,100, 000 new spindles are to be added to the productive capacity of the South. South Carolina leads in this expansion with 175,000 new spindles, and North Caro? lina follows next with 186,000, The mills mentioned produce cotton piece goods or yarns. Bat hosiery and knitt? ing mills also are being started, and a silk mill ia reported. A Clothing Combine. One of the largest industrial combi? nations of recent years is being formed by Baltimore enterprise. Options have been secured on 150 large clothing manufacturing establishment? through? out the country by Mr. Samuel Rosen thai, Jr., of Baltimore, who for the past four months has been actively en? gaged in forming a gigantio clothing combine to be incorporated under the laws of New Jersey and to be known as the American Clothing Manufacturing Company. The company, it is understood, will have a capital stock of $100,000 ,000. The literature of the sixty vears of the reign of George III, ?aya the Port? land Oregonian, including as it did Hume, Burke .Gibbon, Borna, Oowpor, Sheridan, Wordaworth, Byron, 8cott, Keats, Shelley, Campbell, Coleridge, Lamb, Moore, was of mora original quality than that of the Victorian age, but if we concede the first plaoe in literary exdlence and originality to the age of Elizabeth and ooucede the ?eoond place to the age of George III we are safe to claim for the reign of Victoria the third place in the quality and aplendor it literature.
