"ion The Excitement In The Cotton
The Picayune of last Sunday
an- speaking editorially of the sudd n
na, fall of cotton, says:
rish Yesterday witnessed considerable
" excitement in local cotton circles,
a- nd the flurry which occurred in all
probability marked the culmination
Mr. of the great speculative movement "
which has been in progress for some
the time. The decline which occurred
was in no sense justified by the sta
tistical position of cotton, and can be as
explained only in the blind eager- tn
Mr. ness to realize earned profits and to ur
the liquidate in expectation of a decline si
ict which everybody seemed to antici- be
pate at the same time.
The leading cause of the excite- to
CRn1 ment and rapid decline developed
sub- yesterday was the plot concocted by ]
vatic the bear operators in New York to fo
the stampede the Southern holders of at
cotton. They realized that unless P'
S. they succeeded in creating a diver- nE
-sion they would have to pay large a'
profits to the Southern holders of ai
Dr. cotton, and their friends, the New hi
re- England and Manchester spinners, t
r of would be forord to purchase the raw
n of material for their mills at a materi.
ally higher figure than they have
paid for several years past. They e'
Mr. accordingly spread broadeast rumors 5
re- and reports to the effect that the to
the leading bull operators in New Or
t to leans were liquidating, the purpose ol
being to create the impression in D
the minds of Southern holders of t!
cotton that the advance had culmi- w
ar- nated, and that, consequently, the tl
tn- time had arrived to unload their li
the holdings. The plot succeeded, and w
the wild scramble to sell which was ti
witnessed yesterday followed. h
The cotton trade throughout the h
South will now have a day's respite, t:
Sduring which the statistical position s
of cotton and the true inwardness of '
the recent flurry can be carefully a
J. S. considered. The Picayune believes c
d in that a calm survey of the situation
ago, will show that the decline which has
. already taken place has more than 1
discounted any top-heaviness which
giers may have existed in the market.
t by Everybody now realies that the
were crop a ill be a short one, so eminent
ig a an authority as Mr. Neill, who has
been more unifo rmly successful as a
crop'estimator than any other man,
ched holding that it will not possibly ex
atur- ceed 6,800,000 bales, and may be
tthe much less. No facts have developed
which can be considered as having
in- discredited Mr. Neill's estimate;
ethence, with prices nearly a cent
outh lower than the highestpoint reached,
ften it would seem that the time had ar
otect rived for merchants and planters to
rie, hold on to their cotton and wait for
SAt any rate, attempts to force cot
the ton on the market during the pre
eans vailing nervousness would only pre
cipitate further weakness; whereas a
rt. prompt stoppage of offerings would
oints permit the market to recover itself
and and in all probability bring about a
cite- favorable reaction. The Southern
idjst producers are more independent this
rep- year than usual, and are able to
market their crops to suit thein own
convenience, s well as their own
ideas as to value. Such being the
case, it would be wise policy for all
pety concerned in hadling actual cotton
aNew to withold offerings for the present.
was A falling of in the pressure to sell

dor- tion in prices. What is now of the
. O. most urgent importance is to check
the nervous excitement and weak
Sness existing in the market, and

e Under the new election law in Mis- anc
d . . tha
sissippi, voting will not be so easy tn
1 as under the old system. The elec- pl
r- tion in November will be the first ix
,o under the new constitution of Mis- she
e sissippi at which state officers have Sa'
been voted for. A correspondent
to the Picayune says:
d There will only be one ballot, l
which the names of all candidates,
,o for state, county, legislative, district
>f and beat officers will be on-the
,! populite as well as Democratic nomi
nees. Under the old constitution W4
and laws each party had its ticket, Na
I and if a man got hold of the right do'
ticket, all he had to do to register ant
his choice was to hand the ticket to Cii
' the election officerg. All this is
changed now. and it cannot be too At
e widely published that it will be no Fe
easy matter to vote intelligently, Fk
Y especially for state officers, on Nov. del
rs 5. There is not perhaps one man in Bu
e ten, at first blush, who ean call the p,
r names of the nominees for state Sp
Be officers, either on the populite or
n Democratic tickets. And yet when
of they come to vote, they must know Sti
ii who are the Democrats and who are to
ie the Republicans and who are the Popu- T.
ir lites. The nominees of both parties
id will be all mixed in together on the JN
as ticket. The election officers will
hand each elector, as be presents C.J
be himself to vote, a ticket. He will
e, take the ticket and enter a booth,
on where he will find a pen and ink.
of With this pen he must indicate by
ly a cross mark opposite the name, the
*es candidate of his choice. He must in
,n not scratch a name, if he does he t
as loses his vote, so far as that particu- in
an lar office is concerned. In someof
ch counties where the populites have a TI
e full tickets in the field, there will be th
ahe t least sixty names on the ticket. s
ant Only a limited time is given, under nn
the law, for each voter to mark and to
I a hand his ticket to the election officers. sa

The.publication some time back hb
te of the article ,"Nary a Nigger," hl

Johnson Island in the Mississippi b

OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
Every community is judged accord
ing to the education and morality of
its people; hence the most important
institutions of a town are its churches
and its schools. We will speak only
of the schools of Lake Providence.
The subject of education has been so
thoroughly discussed that anything we
say on it will prove but vain repetition;
r nevertheless, we want to call attention
I to the advantages afforded us on this
scorce right here at home.
In Lake Providence and the district
immediately surrounding it there are
four public schools for the benefit of
white children, and all of these schools
have unusually competent teachers,
hence every child in this community
has it in his or her power to receive
I free of charge a thorough education.
The school situated in the town of
Providence looks from the road scarce
e ly larger then a two roomed cottage,
I but it contains four large rooms well
furnished with desks and chairs, and
black boards, and charts, and the
e nucleus of a library. The yard is
o long, narrow and covered with grass
l and shade trees. Here at recess the
I- children play all sorts of out door
g games, and unconsciously build up for
I. themselves strong bodies that can
d furnish fuel for active brains. There
are four departments in this school,
and its curriculum, includes, a course
of mathematics extending from prim
h ary arithmetic through higher arithme
tic, algebra, and geometry, to trig
d onometry; a course of English extend
y ing from the analysis of simple senten
t, ces. through higher grammar, rhetoric
f and composition, to literature, a course
in geography extending from elemen
e tary geography, through, higher geo
,e graphy, and physical geography, to
astronomical geography: a course in
Sr history, extending from primary histo
's ry of the United States throug h the
L. higher history of the United States,
is and through Ancient History; a course
a in Latin extending from the first gram
,. mar. through the higher grammars,
d and through Caesar. Cicero and Virgil.
is The sciences taught are Botany Natu
t ral History and Physiology. And we
blush to say, thatthe children are also
ly instructed in the now almost obsolete
rr branches of reading, writing and spell

this community can acquire a good of
education in the Lake Prpvidence pub tl
lie school, this public school whose
crowning glory is, it does not at
afford opportunities for half grown in
girls and boys to become what
is called '"accomplished." In one of
his novels Thackeray describing a
blaokguord that has gambled in every
watering place of Europe. says. ,"He
speaks eight languages with equal in- s
correctness." Likewise do those young i
pupils who beside the English course of a
study, take several extras. play, sing,

Our schools here offer a plain good
foundation, of knowledge, on which ond
can afterwards, huild any intellectual
structure, whether it be scientific or lit
erary. Our schools are conducted by
teachers that are in touch with the mod
ern methods of instruction and are as
f-aily able to lead the;children undertheir
charge into fields of knowledge as are .
