If a war is to be brought to a speedy and successful close, and the horrors of warfare controlled, and limited, as far as the nature of such strug gles will allow of, it is barbarous in a great civilized power not to use the utmost expedition to prevent the spreading of bloodshed and dis order. It is more merciful to be severe at first, and that a compara tive few should suffer and a small portion of country be overrun, than to let the disorder spread till a whole nation must be laid waste, and the first-born of every family taken.

Thc fccljle colony startc(1 with an amazing amount of steam and laudation, and promiscuous circu- lation of promissory notes, with a poisonous support, although well intentioncd, from the newspaper press of the country. By some un toward misfortune those who would have made the true builders up of a colony in a new land, stayed at home, or went elsewhere, while a and hang ers on to an industrious society flooded the place, and never having been trained to work, and having no inclination to " labor and to wait," gave the colony such a set back that it can only recover by the insertion longest out of them. The candidates for county positions are putting on the war paint for the contest which is to come off next Thursday. This week we have had three would-be-elected gentlemen Judge Delius, J. D.

The elector who intends to vote will, probably, well consider the claims of the man he would support, but it is not an easy task to decide as to the best man when two equally capable men are running for the same office.

Materials nthe Lest quality only used country, of the impression, so gen erally entertained, of the worth of the Rugby lands. Disappointed, because incapable, men have done their worst to injure Rugby and everything in collection with it, and in the absence of the Loard defend ing its interests, the grumblers and incapables have been credited with speaking the truth. No private business concern will grow, or long flourish, unless it be well and constantly attended to, and its objects kept continually and prominently before the public ; how necessary then it is the Board, with its immense interests, should by judicious advertisement and representation, in this country and the old,- keep before the reliable emigrating classes the true char acteristics of their lands, and the many advantages possessed by Rug by not dreamed of in other settle ments of a generation's growth. In consequence of a false start, with much promise of success, Rugby has fallen back into the. ruck, and has not, as yet, "aocuied a place" in the running, but there holding offices, and we do not see why there need be, if the records read well, but it is a wise provision to overhaul the public servants occasionally, to see that no round man has got into a square hole, or a square man into a round hole. If a wrong man has got into a wrong box, we don't doubt that next Thurs day the right man will be put into the right place. The business outlook for the re mainder of the present year is very encouraging all over the country. It has hardly ever been better in East Tennessee. The prospect of good crops, the growth of manu facturing interests, the completion of new railroad connections and the development of new mining interests, are the foundations of this cheerful hope for the future. Prices for farm products will be remunerative, and our farmers will be encouraged to edouble their efforts for the future. Knoxvilla Whig and Chronicle. breaking out again at Chicago.

The bull speculators In a recent reply to a newspaper interviewer on the question of over immigration, Mr. Procter, Kentucky state Geologist, replied : ' Do you know that, if every man, woman and child now in the United States were placed in the State of Texas, the population of that State would be about as dense as the population of France, and not so dense as the population of Mas sachusetts is now.

She has brought her hand down upon the disorder threatening her interests and vitality in the East, and will not remove it until order has been restored. She is able to do the work she has taken in hand, and she will do it, but she evidently feels there is a long and arduous work before her, as all her preparations betoken. We think a big mistake was made in not having a sufficient military force at hand to back up at once the effects of the bombardment of the forts at Alexandria Arabi Pasha has had time him to extend his power and in fluence to an extent that will now mile in France, Belgium and the Netherlands the three countries in Europe where there is more univer sal prosperity among the masses and from whence there is scarcely any emigration. I believe there is nothing more conducive to happiness than a dense agricultural population, where the people are the owners of the lands. In the countries above named the feudal laws have given place to land tenure similar to our own, and but for the high taxes in cident to wars and standing armies, the peasantry of those countries would be in a very prosperous con dition. To allay the fears of the timid ones, who are scared at the thought of a dense population, please copy the following extracts. Here," said Mr. Procter, taking some books from his library and turning to cer tain passages, " is a work published by the Unned States Department of State on the state of labor in Europe, from reports of the United States Consuls in Europe. Referring to the condition of the peasantry, the report says : 'For these reasons, the work people of France, with as little remuneration and as scanty fare as those of almost any other country, are the happiest and most contented labor population in Europe. As a general rule, and viewed from a purely material standpoint, the French farmer, small as well as great proprietor, is better off than his brother agriculturist in America. It is well known that the peasantry of France held the bulk of the French bonds. The Netherlands is a country in part wrested from the sea. Much of the sou was origin ally unproductive. JNo coal nor minerals are there to enrich the country, yet the Consular report says: 'In this country, upon an area of somewhat more than 20,000 square miles' (about one-half the size of Kentucky) 'there live four million of people. There perhaps can not be found elsewhere an equal number, occupying a similar urea, in which a larger amount of wealth at Chicago are discouraged by the prospect ot a six-hundred-million- bushel wheat crop.

During the past week the follow ing news has reached this country from Alexandria. Arabi Pasha re ported in his official account of the battle before Alexandria having sunk eight British iron-clads, two burned and a few more captured. The British troops had a slight collision, on Saturday, with Arabi's soldiers, who were engaged in de stroying the railroad to Cairo, eight miles from Alexandria. The Egyptians were driven away after losing many men. The Khedive has declared Arabi Pasha a rebel. A detachment of GOO British troops, on Monday, had a sharp encounter with the enemy, defeating them, and entrenching themselves at Ramlch. The report that the British troops looted the palace at Ramleh is totally false. Queen Victoria has called out the reserves. The British ritle team who are to come to this country to compete in the Rifle match, have been selected. The Hon John Pright has resigned his position in the British Cabinet. Earl Kimberly, it is expected, will succeed him. Mr. Bright resigned on acconnt of his well known peace principles, which he has been con sistent in observing throughout his political life.
