HUMANITY.
If there ever was a time when we
. . . .
should realize the fact of the broth-
, , .1.-1 i
er-nooa oi numamiy, mas
now. And it must bring joy to the
heart of every true philanthropist
to see that fact being so generally
recocnizsd all over our broad land.

ana demonstrates umi
is an actuality, real ana sen-exis
tent.
Tlio nmniint of suffering, entailed
upon a large portion of Louisiana,
, , S , 4 k
and other Southwestern states, by
the recent most unprecedented
flood.'', is scarcely realized by the
public remote from the scene ot
,i;strr. Fortunes have been
. . , A
swept away m a moment ; wel-to-do
farmers have been reduced almost
to starvation : Millions of acres of
arrable land flooded ; bouses wash-
ed away and towns inundated ;
labor wasted and desolation spread
rampart over once the most wealthy
and most refined sections of the
South. The accounts given of
individual instances of extreme
suffcrinjr, as well as a realization of
the general calamity, are heart
rending, and appeal most touch-
ingly to the warmest impulses of
our nature.
What then becomes the duty of
i-unsii-u uimi, ui uuc nuuicSai
no christian obligation but i3 iH
fluenced by charity and benevo
lence, in such an emergency as
this.' What saith the fcenptures
about the man who hath and seeth

up bis uoweis vi cuujpassum
against him? What saith it of
... ,
that giving that enncheth and
withholding that brings to poverty ?
What Saith It Of the man Who Cast
eth his bread upon the waters ?
What saith humanity of him who
hath abundence and can coldly
witness the suffering poverty about
him, with no eye to pity and with
out stretching forth his arm to
help ? And what saith our own
consciousness of the joy of giving ?
It becomes then the duty, and
should be the pleasure, of those
posscsing means to aid these who
have been so sadly and sorely smit
ten. Gentlemen of property should
constitute a committee in every
community to solicit contributions.
Various portions of the United
States have done this, and up to
this time the donations of even
Boston, a city supposed to have but
little good-will for the 'South,
amount to nearly $40,000. The
general government has also made
an appropriation of $150,000, but
still there is great need.
We hope this subject may com
mend itself to the public, and that
our own cummunity, as well as
others throughout the State, may
show material sympathy by liberal
contributions.
A recent dispatch from General
Custer, in Dakota Territory, to the
Adjutant General of that depart
ment, shows that the Indians are
raiding again upon the settlers.
la Wyoming territory the Sioux
have become troublesome, firing
into the camps of the military
scouts, and in Texas the indians
from the reservation fired into the
camp of the Tenth calvary at
Argur. it seems impossible for
these savages to learn anything
We would have thought the tragio
end of the Modacs w;uld not soon
be forgotten.
Doctors are usually unappre
dated. They are generally poorly
paid, and the community has but a
faint idea of the amount of good
they do and the relief they bring to
suffering humanity as they unosten
tatiously move in society. It is so
seldom too that they hare their
merited position before the public
that it is wiih pleasure that ne
publish the article to their praise

Already there has been bloodshed

is a shameful commentary upon the

of reading the Republican party the
following lesson
The painful fact remains that the

A question was propounded to us
by a friend a few days ago and we
mention it in our columns that
sor-e of our readers may have the
opportunity of answering it. Where
did the expression " Like oil upon
the troubled waters " originate ?
It may be of interest to mention,
that it is a fact, discovered by an
accident, that by pouring oil upon
a tempestuous sea a vessel may
savely harbor where it would be
impossible to do so otherwise. The
matter has been recently discussed
:n tu S.-ientifo Amprican and it
ja there related that during a severe
storm a Valine Tes3el poured over-

danger. It is claimed, however
that this fact was first noticed by
Ben. Franklin.
As the matter has become one o
practical interest to the scientists
the curiosity as to the origin of the
phrase quoted above becomes more
absorbing. Will not some of our
literary readers enliphten us ?
The recent news from Spain
18
most cheering to the friends of the
Republic. The siege of Bilboa
which has lasted so long and was
so stubornly resisted, has been rais
ed and the city has been occupied
by Marshal Serrano and the Re
publican forces. There seems too
to be a general state of demoraliza
tion in the Carlists ranks, numerous
small bodies having surrendered to
the government forces, and the
main portion of the army is said to
have retreated in great disorder in
the direction of the province of Guip-
uzcoa. f Serrano is a man capa
ble to command the situation, we
may look for a series of successes
for the Republican forces that will
soon bring the war to a close and
give peace once more tc Spain.
The Wilmington Star thus speaks
of Col. McKoy, the Democratic
candidate for the position of Judge
in the fourth district :
Colonel Alraand A. McKoy, of
Sampson, the nominee for Judge, is
a prominent lawyer of middle age,
mature and practical views, wide
personal popularity a man of un
flinching integrity and high purity
which command aike the respect of
political foes and friends.
The Finance Commute of tbje
Senate held a long session on Sat
urday last on the currency question
There appearp no difficulty among
the members on the general feat
ures of a free banking clause of
which they are in favor, but they
can come to no agreement on the
other features of a bill on this sub
ject. In various portions of our State
we are now witnessing the disgust
ing sight of judges manoevering for
office. We fear for the spotless
ness of the ermine when judges
have to resort to chicanery for
popular votes.

AGRICULTURE AND MANUFAC
TURE.
The April report of the depart
ment of Agriculture has the follow
ing. It would be well if the fact
of the correlation between agricul
ture and manufacture were more
generally realized.
That farmers and manufacturers
are mutual producers and consumers
that is, that each is a consumer of
the other's products is quite plain.
It ought to be equally piain mat u
is for their mutual advantage ana
profit that they bo in juxtaposition.
The cost of transportation between
them is a tax on both, and it increases
with the distance between them. If
the price were fixfd to th e producer,
whether ot agricultural c mecnanicai
products, then the cost to the con
sumer must increase with the distance
between them; if the price were fixed
to the consumer, then the profits to
the producer must be diminished as
the distance between;, them increases.
Ab a matter of fact, the cost of in
tervening transportation is a tax
which is divided between them, and
th b would still hold true were that
cost reduced to its minimum. To
transportation companies and middle
men distance may "lend enchantment
to the view, but he is an unwise
fanner who does not do all in his
power to encourage manufacturers to
locate beside him. A lormer corres
pondent of this department, who has
emigrated from Indiana to Morgan
County, Alabama, calls attention to
the great disadvantage agriculture
abors under in that section i. r tne
reason that it has it 1 itherto been
made the exclusive industry. He
says : it ever a country r.eeueu
manufactures this certainly does.
Our watrons are shipped from North
ern Indiana; plows, hoes and even
ax-handles, as well as every other
manufactured article, come from the
North, although the country abounds
in the finest timber for manufactur
ing purposes."
Democracy gave us all the law-
essness and violence ot the ivu
Klux. Republicanism cave us law
and order. Ralaiqh Era.
We differ with the above siifrhtlv.
Democracy gave us a constitutional
republic. Radicalism gave us the
socialistic dreams and fanatical out
rage? of the commune.

DETAILS OF THE DISASTER.
Memphis. May 2.
Many reports have been sent from
here in reference o th overflow,
some of which partook of a sensational
character, as, for instance, the damage
at Osceola, Arkansas, where it waa
stated that the levee had broken, the
town was inundated, and the inhabi
tants were in a perilous condition;
when the fact was that a small
traverse levee had broken and par
tially flooded the town to a depth, of
about ten inches. f
A brief review of the entire situation
may prove interesting. From Cairo
to this point, steamers cannot make
landings on the west bank except at
wharf boats, and yet, with the excep
tion of at Osceola, no serious damage,
to planting interests has resulted
From the Louisiana line up, there
are no levees on the Arkansas side
except local o:ies; and a large portion
of the country s subject to inunda
tion, and is sparsely settled, as is the
case opposite here, where the river
spreads out to the highlands near
Madison, a distance of oyer forty
miles. St. Francis Valley is generally
a foot above the overflow, and the
I lanters are waiting for dry weather
to begin planting, wnite itiver
Valley is inundated up to Indian Bay,
la,
but for reasons already given the
damage is slight. Ten thousand
dollars will probably cover the loss
on stock, &c.
The Arkansas Valley is overflowed
up to Arkansas Post, but like others
the damage is light, and 15,000 wil
probably cover it From the mouth
of the Arkansas down, is where the
greatest damage has resulted, and
where destitution undoubtedly exists
among all classes, but particularly
among the laborers aud their tamiaes.
Largo portions af the Tallahatchie
and Yallabusha bottoms have been
overflowed for some time, but at the
latent accounts the water was sub
siding; but another crevasso was
reported at Cat t ish Point, making
the fourth in that vicinity, though as
vet but few plantations bave been
iujured.
The Sunflower Kiver has thus far
carried oil the main body of water
escaping through :he Ilushpuckana
crevasse, lhe Deer Lreek planta
tions have not suffered materially.
but from Milliken Bend, twenty-two
miles above Vicksburg, is where the
greatest dauisge lias been done, and
where the greatest destitution and
suffering prevail. The citizens here
are making good progress in for
warding supplies to the sufferers, and
have established depots from Na
poleon to Van Cii se Landing. '
A lady from near Napoleon, whose
husband was one of the wealthiest
planters in that section, arrived here
to-day, and stated that she U-ft the
the family and plantation hands,
numbering eighty, without food.
All would have starved a few days
since but for the food furnished by
the officers of tho city of Vicksburg.
In a recent speech in the United
states Senate on the civil rights bill,
. ,
Mr. Norwood, ot ueorgia, made usa
... . . l
ol the tollowing striking and enective
,
language :
N- 4.000.000 slaves
were set free. The next year they
were invested with civil rights. The
third year they were given the ballot,
and tlie fourth year rulers of men.
..... . . .... t
v itlun that bnei space ot time the
negroes were made professors of
Republican doctrines, aud set up as
rulers. Ilistorv furnished no such
parallel. Of the 500,000 Israelite,
who went out froiu ligjpt, but tuo
were found competent to be rulers in
40 years, though they were instructed
by signs from the great Creator of
the Universe. The Republican party
had made 000,00 rulers In 40 minutes,
without any assistance. The man
and brother was taken otf the corn
fit-1 i and made a Kepublican states
man bv an act of Congress."
But what appeals to reason
avail with Radicalism ?
can
The Richmond Enquirer thus con
cludes an able article on the civil
rights bill now pendiug before Con
gress :
"Thf passage of this civil rights
bill would b. one o tho boldest blows
ev-r struck at the rights of the States.
It could be productive of no good to
the black race, and the white race of
the South would receive it as another
evidence of vindictivo hatred on the
part of the chiefs and leaders of the
Radical party, i he colored m-tn is
already invested with "equality be
fore the law" by the States of the
South; and his liberties are conceded,
and his rights respectfd by the
Southern people. n8 needs no Con
gressional legislation to protect him.
He is safe and free as he is to work
out his own destiny among the white
men who are fully as friendly toward
him as tliose who would, if they
could, force him into antagonism with
them."
. Mark Twain s Soldiership.
A northern papr says : It tran
spires that Mark Twain was a soldier,
having served two weeks with Jeff
Thompson in the rebel army in
Missouri. That he never male much
of a military record is explained in a
letter which he has just written to
Thompson. He says: "We never
won any victories to speak of. We
never could get the enemy to stay
still when we wanted fiht, and we
were generaly on the move when the
enemy wanted to fight."
An historical curiosity has just
been placed in the museum of the
Invalides, namely, the suit of armor
which Charles VII. presented to
Joan of Arc, and which the heroine
went to deposit at St. Denis after
having been wounded under the walls
of Paris. It is composed of steel
plates, weighs about fifty pounds, and
in every respect resembles the one in
the Pierrefonds collection, which the
Maid or Orleans wore at the moment
when site fell into the power of the
enemy in making a sortie from
Compeigne.
Appeals from overflowed Louisiana
says : 4,For pity sake send us relief.
The cows that are not drowned are
starving." The details of calamity
are too wide spread for telegraph.
No mail trains reached Jackson and
Mob le yesterday. The maiis come
via Vicksburg by boat.
A Washington telegram says there
is nodoubt that the civil rights bill,
M amendtd since Sumner's death,
will pass both Houses and be a law
before the end of the session. To
which the Kiehmond Dispatch adds :
" Then away goes the Univrsity
of Virginia, the Military Institute,
the Agricultural College, the Medical
College, and the whole public school
system. There's "reform" for you."
