The wave of prosperity w dub. has b39 l sweeping over the South promis - t'.id grandest results for this long gulf eriui and long neglecttd section, hut there should be no cessation of jjood work if we expect to realize all which tha future seem? to have in st >; ?? for us. While efforts ufe boiu? miir to attract Northern and Earopaia cap ital herd for developiug our mines and increasing our mauufact >ries, we must uet lose sight of the fact that buildtug up our wane places and nd iiig to tb? number of our farms is also of great importance. To do this maatis the fur? nishing of homes, of comfort and pros? perity to millions, who might other? wise ekin^ out an an'satisfaVtnry extsteuce iu the crowded districts oft he Xortb, or iu the uaremuaerative agri? cultural sections of "England and tht Teutonic countries of Europe. With u climate of uae jua'.ed 8alubrity,an I with afertile,we)l watered and well timbered soil, mdlious of thrifty settlers could fiud just ths homes they nee i iu t!u slates South of Mason and Dixoa's Hu? and east of the Mississippi river. E;i_r land with 32.590^397 acre's, had a popu? lation in 1881 of 24.012.:J3l. .viule Virginia with 24,500,0 ?0 a *cs h id in 1SS1 a population of only I."12 803 of whom 600,000 were colored. Iu this state the conditions for existence are equal to those ofEaglaod with its 2-1. 012,391 soais, and on the sa mc ratio of population we should hiv.? about IC 000,000 people liviu< here. The pro 2>ortion of population iu the other Southern states may bd put on the same basis for comparlsou, aud it is easy to see what-a splendid field for work aud for settlement is here afford c.l. Everything that E inland his can hi produced iu Virginia."and much thai will not grow there can be call v :t -d successfully here. It would be :year? before ,a<;b ? density of population c >u. ! be r- ic'li 'i and perhaps it is apt to bs desired; but an average populaUo i of') 000 <>s>:> each in the states of Virgt?ia Wesi Virginia, Tenncses.

While other nation* are boasting and blustering, the government ol* the United States is progressing quietly aud successfully-in creating i first-cl iss nary. The work commenced by a Dam > cratic administration is being am turned with vigor aud thoroughness by its ru publicau successor, and iu a few year a good use will bo made of some of the surplus millions in the treasury by the building of a navy worthy the power an i prestige of this great republic/: The subject is one upon which man of all parties are agreed, an 1 one thai ap peals to the pride aud patriotism of the people of every class aud section. With a powerful navy to enforce its demands and protect its. citizens, thejo will be nw fear'of-Torejgn -itKevl>rence and no need to resort to force in pro? tecting-our intareSt-s^^Cjin^dajwill bo more careful ia seiziug American fish? ing vessels or appropriating Alaskan seals. Chili will no longer menace our Pacific coast, and Great Britain and Germany will he less aggressive iu their course towards this country. The policy of ilia Unite 1 Statos has been oue of non-interference with European affairs, but the spleudid growth and great wealth of the natiou may call its energies from home, and with a large percentage of adopted cit? izens lo p.otcct. there is no koowiuj how soon it may be n?cessary to m*ke tho power of this country known and respected.
