The Perfection of ItH Architectu ral CoiiHtruclion and the Splen lor of Its Interior Ilecoratlon Six Hundred VearH Old, lite. Col.OC.NK, GERMANY, Similiiv, August 4, 1SK9.I F.ditor Citizen : We have given vim our opinion of the sermons which wc were so fortunate as to lienr on the past two Sundays, first from Dr. Lees at lidin- liurgh, and next from tlie renowned Canon Farrar in London. To-day we have enjoyed another, widely different, to Ik; sure, but preaching to us the glory of (tod as manifest in the marvelous works of his creatures. We mean that to-day we have looked upon and enteral the grandest specimen of Gothic building that the W'orld con tains. Differing Irom everything we have seen elsewhere, and far surpassing all others in sublimity of beauty, the Cathe dral of Cologne will rest in our mind and heart as the most refreshing, restful spot we ever beheld, or dreamed of. The perfection of its arches and of the general proportion is such lis to deceive one as to its immense size and to bring every point apparently near to the lie holder, while tlicexquisitcly Hilled pillars, each adorned with statuary, (not in the wearisome style of Westminster, but one or two figures to each column), arc lighted to their very tops by the brilliant and yet soft light whichstieains through the most lovely ot glass. A very faint idea of the exterior may be ;had from a photograph, which we will ;send you, hut none could we liiul to adc .qunlcly represent the magical effects of ithe nave and transept and channel. And yet, notwithstanding the immensity, the .acoustic properties are such that at ves jiers every lone could be heard even in the most distant corners, and the soft roll of the organ seemed to till each spot and to siscend to Heaven even as the sweet in cense which went up belore the altar, until it, too, caught the bright glow of the sun, itself made more glorious by the medium through which it entered. Yes, we repeat, it was a sermon indeed to reflect upon the Creator who made tin man's brain by which this cathedral was designed more than (100 years ago, be cause lie it remembered that the work was begun early in the tliit'lcenthceuliirv and although not completed until INTO, it is manifest that the whole ground plan must not only have been conceived, but Sccificd ill most minute detail by the original architect ; otherwise il could not possibly have attained its present perlcc . tion. .lf course we were pained bv hearing re Jics, and pieces of the original cross, un$ aJI such bosh as that, with which, slratMcf to say, the Catholicchurch.ainid , its multitude of good works, still allows its silly votaries to hcdcludcd, and others .to use as a means of fleecing traveling in nocents. But not belonging to the most ,idvaiiccd of this class, wc declined to in vest in the relic business, and successfully kept our thoughts upon those things With which this same church lias done so much to proclaim the glory of God, and o educate mankind to a conception, j n" nfar off, of 1 1 is infinite beauty and '"wcMefl lii-i.'sols at a very early hour this morning ai."l '"' s";;',v ''".'"''V'1 adding up our Frcm" hotel hill.gnzmgm petrified horror at its ensnnhh of francs and centimes, when ?. "mcm entered our carriage and sain something which wc can neither pronounce nor write, but which sounded somewhat like "Oiichciiwrachenehroiilzenginz," which a kind fellow traveler interpreted to mean a demand for our keys and a warning that no more French would lie allowed under icnalty of decapitation for high treason. We readily surrendered our keys and assisted the officer to smell all of'our soiled socks, which he seemed to appreciate highly. But how can we sur render our lovely French, over which wc have labored so earnestly, and ol which we were justly so proud? Oh, it is too bad. Wc could shed tears over our loss, csecially us it is a most grievous one to this whole nation. If uninterrupted, we would have had them educated up very soon to an idiom entirely new and of most charming patois, lint such is lite "I never loved a fair gazelle," etc., etc. The burly officer seemed so much im pressed with the perfumery we tendered liim that lie pussed by theother nicmlicrs .of our party with an expressive grunt of iipproval, and thus were the custom Jiouse duties protected from an infringe ment. What a farce the whole business is! Why not have free trade for all, and save this disgusting nonsense? Jn our letter from Brussels wc forgot to mention that which most delighted us, its wonderful store of flowers. Since wc landed at Antwerp our eyes have been gladdened with their rich and glorious lines at every step, but more especially so in Brussels and at this city. Here their cultivation has been most careful, and no more agreeable, nor to our mind more profitable, way can besuggested tosiend a Sunday afternoon than to wander, as wc have to-day, over the smooth walks and velvety grass of the jardin Botan niquc ( wc don't know the (ierman for it ) feasting upon its beauties and meeting crowds of happy, contented laboring eo. pie, in this way taking their holiday, .drinking liccr and listening to the swccl . est of music. It was very delightful anil jvc enjoyed it, you may lie sure. The country through which we passed this morning was all excellently cultiva ted and thus agreeable to look upon, lint a good part of it, estiecially that from '.iege to Aix-la-Chapcile, was far more urciue than wc exacted to find it. i.v,,. he lowland nats it changed to mi ll u Wling "" to m- r,""n-v llK' hills became W "'! 1., u"1: """' us somewhat of roae , of Scot land, saving their la1", which lack was in part amended by numerous clear, bright rivers and creeds, w.'wh we spun over us wc dashed out of the numerous tunnels. Cologne hns-iiot vcrv much to cause .nc to prolong his visit after an iuspee ti.in of the cathedral. Most of the streets arc narrow and antiquated, but a part of the most ancient have lieen torn away since the war with France and replaced by boulevards such us would doeredit to nnv eitv. We tried to find the statues of the three kings, but as our French tongue was tied, and tlicsc people can lam iviig- lish nn lietter than we can l.erman, we meet with but slight success. We did, however, gat her on to the legend that the three kings were tnc magi, who, utter their adoration of the infant Jesus, came hither, and here they lived, died and were buried, their tomb still licing recog nized. I'ossiblv this may explain why this apparently insignificant city was chosen us the site ot the grnnu catnciirai, which is a question that has puzzled us and will continue to do so, unless the .above is the true solution of it. P. S. Just as wc are stepping into bed. we find that we are expected to sleep under a feather lied. It (toes seem very nice and fluffy, and would lie greatly en jovedifthe mercury were at zero, but with it at HO m the shade we are inclined to postpone our exiciieuce of tins funny Hutch hospitality until our next visit. Perhaps if the Swiss at Mount Blanc adoul the same habit we mav then lie able to tell vou what we think of it. T. W. P. hot sprin;s noti:s. Prospects for Fine Huntliiit More Theatricals, F;tc.

Since the representation of "The Mouse Trap" on Saturday, Miss Margaret Sliojie has been the recipient of many con gratulations on her success as Mrs. Amy Soiuers. Miss Shopc reminds one of that well known and talented actress Miss Ada Kehan, of Daly's New Vol k troupe, in her. stage manner. But in beauty Miss SlioK' far surpasses Miss Rchun. So successful was the Saturday per formance, that the lady guests propose Lo arrange another entertainment for tin stage, and if these performances are long continued, the Mountain Park promises to develop into a school for amateur ac tors and actresses. The beginning, at least, has been auspicious. "The Sweetheart" is the next play on the program. Il consists of several acts embracing a tale of love and heroism met with only in the choicest romance.

The hrst bale of short staple upland ever auc tioned here was disposed of at 11) o'clock this morning in front of the board of trade building. The bale weighed 570 pounds and the cotton was of a fine quality, and was raised bv D. D. Mnssey, a planter ot Jefferson county, living near Montu-cllo.

The tax returns for lHSf showed that proKTtv hail increased in value through out Georgia $1.S,(MII),IIIII). livery year since that time the returns have shown an increase but never has the amount for the year 1SSH been equalled. This year, however, the high water mark will be passed and a new record established. Captain I'urlow, of the comptroller general's office, has received up lo dale the tax digests ot 1,'12 counties, andlhese show an increase of $i:),(l(l(),(lllll.

The tax receiver of Fulton couty predicts thai his digest will show at least $l',,(l(lll,lltl() im provements. And should the other four counties have fallen oil m value, the rtsult will have little effect on the grand total. The increase of ISS.'I, which, for many years, was quoted us something phenom enal, included the improvements in rail road property, which was a very large factor.

Cincinnati, August 21. Amid the booming of cannon and cheers from the vast concourse gathered at the Central station the President ai rived heie at a quarter alter ten o'clock, over two hours and a half late, owing to an accident to the engine ot the train in trout of the Western lixpress lietwecn Baltimore and Washington yesterday. Crowds were assembled at all stations enroiitc and heartily cheered the President, while some pushed forward to shake hands with him. The President retired at midnight last night, and slept soundly. He took an early breakfast, the tncai being cooked oy an old colored servant ot the late John W. Garrett and successive presi dents ol the Baltimore ci: Ohio Railroad. He is the same man who accompanied ex-President Cleveland on his wedding tour. At iireeniiciii, iiiuo, a card was handed to Mr. Harrison with the words "We wish you the earth and a safe jour ney." A crowd of several thousand stood and cheered themselves hoarse, while the General stood, hat in his hand, waving his greeting. "Oh! Mr. Harri son, please say a word," cried a woman ; but the train carried him away too soon. The morning was spent in reading papers and talking over old war times with General Morgan, Daniel Kansdell, and Capt. Meredith. The party consists of President Harrison, Attorney-General Miller, Private-Secretary llallord, Sec retary Rusk, Hon. lohn B. Flam, Col. J. B. Black, General Thomas G. Morgan, commissioner ot Indian affairs; Hon. J. J Irvin, ol Indiana ; Hon. Daniel M. Kansdell, Marshal ol the District ot Col umbia; B. B. Cockriim, Assistant Dis trict Attorney of Indiana; lion. W. M. Meredith, chid of the hiircnuofcngrnvinij ami printing, and the associated press reporter. Marshal Rausdcll handed Private Secretary Halford a request brought by a mail all the way from Johnstown Irom the Red Cross society asking the President to return by way of Johnstown thai he might see for himsell Hie terrible condition ot things there. J. A. Ik-riii, of Cincinnati, an old school IVicin I ol Mr. Harrison ut Miami Univer sity, had a friendly chat with the chief executive. The Central t'niou depot was packed toils capacity when the presidential party arrived. Cheers followed cheers as the President's lace was recognized, and there was aualmoslcontiiiuoiisova- tion of applause until he reached his car riage which he occupied with Governor Fornkcr. The escort was made up of a balallion of police and two patrol wa gons under the command ol chiel Dietsch, the First Regiment of Ohio Na tional Guards, commanded by Col. M. L. Hawkins and Battery B. of the Ohio National Guard. The latter tired a sa lute as the President was making his way to the carriage. The line of march was up Central avenue to 4-n street, and thence east to Vine, and thence to the Burnett House. The streets were packed with shouting people, while the windows were alive with men, women and children, all joining in the boister ous welcome to the chief magistrate. Fourth street, esiieciallv, presented a brilliant aiiearaiice. The President rode almost continually with his hat in bis hand, ami was almost constantly bowing his acknowledgements of Un cut husiastic greetings that were given. I pon arriving at the Burnett House lie was at once escorted to the parlor which was elaborately adorned with flowers. 1 lere the public reception began almost immediately. The President stood be fore a table on which was an elaborate floral design. Among those who have held receptions in the room were the Prince of Wales, the Hungarian patriot Kossuth, lennv land, Lincoln, General Grant, and General Sherman. Mayor Mosby made a briel welcoming address to which the President replied as fol lows: Mr. Mayor:"! thank you and the IK'ople of Cincinnati for whom yon Seak, fortius kindly welcome. It would be pleasing to me to speak of the recollec tions which your remarks nnd this city recall; but there is neither time nor oppor tunity lor that. Cincinnati, however, more than any other city of its class in the country seems to me to lie the home city." the fu st callers on the President after the committees had liecn presented, were resident members of Ohio eotninandcry of the Loyal Legion, of which the President is a member, lie greeted these compan ions with a kindly grasp for he knew they had all, like himself, passed through the tiny furnace of war. Then fol lowed the public as rapidly as they could he marshalled. At tile end of three-quarters of an hour, the President was driven lo the Builders ICxchange at Sixth and Yinc, where president Allison welcomed him. President Harrison re sponded by saying: "I have laid upon myself the innova tion ot avoiding public s pea long on this trip, but I cannot refrain from saying a word in appreciation of your kindness. I rejoice ill the prosperity and develop ment of your great city, and hoK' it will always lie a city of prosjierous and happy homes, whethw rich or poor." The President was then driven to the magnificent new building of the chamber ot commerce, through the doors ot which a great mass of icoplc poured, engulfing the nicmlicrslicfore they could have their siK'cial reception. 1 lie iiuilding was elaborately and ornamentally decorated wilii prolusion ol national flags. Low Fincrson, delivered the welcoming address and relerred to the magnitude of the city's trade. The President replied as follows: Mr. President, ladies and gentlemen the figures winch your Sieaker has used in his address quite overcome mc; the suggestion he raised leaving to my mind many pleasant recollections. it was here at vour crowded wliarvesand where floated the great palaces upon the waters 1 had mv first glimpse ot the great eitv To me, a country boy, it was a wonder ful sight.

The I President was then driven to the hotel for dinner and rest ; and at 5 o'clock he left over the Cincinnati, Hamilton ci Dayton road for Indianapolis. MIKK'S WIFF, HAS LEFT HIM. A Millionaire'!! Wife FUopet Her Coachman in the Secret. Ciiicaco, August 21. The wife of mil lionaire Mike McDonald, the ex-gambler, has been missing since lust Friday. De tectives have been retained to discover her whereabouts. They have only suc ceeded in finding thalhcrdiamonds were sold somewhere in the east. Itis supposed that Mrs. McDonald is now in Ivuroie. It is being reported this evening, that she had a companion, a Catholic priest, who it is alleged has liecn since unfrocked by the church. The priest is supposed to have had a parish at south Chicago, or sotne suburb in that direction. The story is that Mrs. McDonald became ac quainted with the priest while he was on a visit here. He Dccanie lulaluatcd with her, the admiration was reciprocated, and an cloxMiient was planned and ex ecuted. Hugh Militancy, McDonald s coachman, took Mrs. McDonald from the house in a carnage last Friday, but said nothing of it until a week hail elapsed, when he told Mike McDonald, adding that he had promised to keep the matter secret for n week. CliiCAi'.o, August 21 . Mike McDonald, whose wife ran away with an ex-priesl, said lo a reporter this morning that he had received a letter from her dated Boston, August 12th. She was still in lalualed with the priest, and the only sorrow that she expressed on account of her act is that her little boys are left motherless. McDonald says he will ap ply for a divorce. He is deeply moved by his wife's desertion, and stoical aslhe ex-ga ni liter is, he liurslcd into tears wlien talking.

The former brilliant and highly culti vated editor of the Augusta Chroni cle and of the Amiiston Hot Blast, distinguished as a journalist, and also as a literateur, is in the city, and favored us with a pleasant visit yesterday. Mr. Randall, though not in editorial harness at present, is true lo his old instincts and habits and still "writes for the pajicrs" in the form of graphic, intelligent nnd most interesting letters, which throw a glow of poetic illumination overthecities and sections favored with his visits. Such a letter has he written among many others of Savannah -o charm ingly descriptive, that if wc i d not like Ashevillc so well, we might I tempted to crave for Savannah. But if . e write so well, and rises on the wing.- i t insoira- tion from the flats of the coast, what may we not expect him to do when he spreads his wings from the lofty iedestal of the mountains, and soars aloft, fed by realities, not by fancies? Mr. Randall is now engaged in bring ing the merits ol the Catholic Mirror, an able paier printed in Baltimore, to pub lie appreciation. One object ol the publi cation is to dissipate prejudices which exist against the Roman Catholic church ill sonic sections by information given ol its policy and practice, and its harmony in the I'nited States with republican in stilulions. Aside from this the Mirror is full of exceedingly able and interesting correspondence, both from domestic and foreign sources. Mr. Randall is a gentleman ami a scholar, and we bespeak for him the fa vorable consideration of onr citizens. OI'R HAYWOOD I'RIF.NOS. turning f Hethel Academy One of Their OiHtrexHeN. We had a visit last night from two of our friends, Mr. W. II. Hargrove, and Mr. M. D. Kinsland, both of the vicinity of Sonoma, on upK'r Pigeon. Mr. liar grove, besides having been a useful mem ber of the Legislature is a successful far mer and poinologist; and we regret to learn from him thai the apple crop ol Haywood approaches very nearly a fail ure. Mr, Kinsland tells us of the fine wheal crop, the fiucprosiccts of the corn crops, and the uhtindnnc and excellence of potatoes and cabbage. Both have a good deal to say about the outrageous incident of the burning of Bethel Academy, a night or two ago. It was without mistake the work of mali cious incendiarism. The lire was discov ered about S o'clock in the evening, un der such circumstances as forbid the suggestion ot'accideut. Theschoo build ing was probably the best one west of Ashevillc. It was of brick, three stories high, and was to have been arranged alter the most approved standard. It w.'ts not quite finished, but would have been within ten days. The cost so far in money was about $2, olio, but probably quite that sum was contributed by the neighborhood in labor and material, nnd the reduced cost at which both were fur nished. The work of rebuilding will soon lie undertaken. The neighbor hood around Sonoma is an intelli gent, moral and highly prosH'rous one. Two new churches have recently liecn ad ded, and there arc now a Baplist, n Methodist and a Presbyterian church, all built at the cost of theeitizensof Sonoma ami vicinity. Jersey Cowh Pay. Mr. S. L. Hough, of Riceville, was in town yesterday. He recently purchased a small herd of Jersey cows at stock sales in Kuoxville.

OF HOME PAR AMOl'NT TO TARIFF. He Does Not Think that Protec tion Ih firowlnic in the Mouth, nor that the Solid South will be liroUen In the Next Flection. Washington, August 21. Senator Hampton in an interview here to-day said that the Republicans were making an effort to break into the Solid South by introducing economic questions, but that it would fail. He said : "As long as the matter of local self gorcrnment demands our attention our Iieople cannot lie divided on this issue. Whether a man is a protectionist or a tariff reformer, the safety or welfare of his home is paramount to the tariff." .ijyoti tlunl: there is a growing prn leetive sentimcni ir tl't K.r'Ji:" "No," the Sena( v i r iteil. tendency i- more ,ikeo t I t way, . specially the n.u'i: - la uring ills! , n-ts.. The in! -i :tv-k'.' r Jic i ilicr ;ml warm"-"" ? of It-.e States ol Virginia, Tennessee auu Ala- iiama, particularly, are advanced by low duties. They can produce iron and coal much cheaper than they can lie produced in the east. Protection only assists the eastern manufacturers to keep up this rivalry. Without protection the rivalry would lie greatly lessened and more cap ital will go to develop the industries of the South. Seeing this, I do not think our H.'ople will lie led oil by this question. The efforts of the Republicans will lie in Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and ierhaps Alabama. I do not think they will meet with success in either. The exo dus of negroes from North Carolina, if it keeps up, will hurt them there, but they could not carry the State anyhow. Mr. Harrison's appoint' ,ents in the South have been of a character to strengthen us in the resistance of any attempts made upon the Southern Stales. I know it has been so ill South Carolina, and 1 presume it is the same slscwhere." He thought inconvenience, but no in jury, would result from the extensive m gro exodus in the South. "We," he said, "would gladly see the colored ieople move elsewhere, and we would be willing to stiller any reduction in the elective col lege and in Congress that might result from their departure. It would make things a little harder for the present gen eration, but would be the salvation of the future. I would gladly vote to ap propriate iSfiO.ooo.ooo for" the purchase of Cuba or some other place in which they might settle." RANOOM NOTES Roped In oy RamhlltiK Reportem Roamiuic Round the City.

A Successful Revival. An interesting revival of religion isnow ii progress at Flat Creek Baptist church under the preaching of Rev. Dr. N. B. Cobb, who was pursuaded to stay over from the Sunday School Convention, which closed last Sunday, and preach for them a lew days.
