James Anthony Froude iu one of his
articles intheNorth Ameru aa Review,
an "Romanism and the Irish Race in
Mhe Uuited States," makes the follow
ing remarkable declaration:
Land, properly speaking, canuot be
owned by any man. It belongs to all
tho human race. -Laws have to be
made to secure the profits' of their in
dustry to those who cultivate it, but,
the private property of this or that

be and never strictly is."
General Grant and party left Wash
ington at 5:20 p. m. in Tom Scott's
palace car and proceeded via Rich
mond, Danville, Charlotte and Colum
bia to Augusta, whence he' went to
Beaufort, S. C , to attend an emancipa
tion celebration,, and thence to Savan
nah, and thence to Feruandina, where
he takes the steamer to Havana. He
spent a few hours in Augusta, and was
enthusiastically received. ; :
There was a joker at Grant's recep
tion at Beaufort. The ex-President
had ejeprtssed a desire for a specimen
ot the phosphate fossils. A gentleman
brought him the jaw bone and the back
bone of the mecralonvx. and remarked
to him that it was a fair specimen of
I arolina chee& and back bone.
