We quote the following, from the
Rome (Ga.) Courier:
"When we read of meu or companies
acquiring millions or hundreds of thou
sands of acres of land, particularly in
the Southern States, we cannot help
thinking that there ought to be State
lonrafnrthft States, and Congressional
laws for the Territories, to prevent the
acquisition of such immense domains
hv a few men. The evil of it will be
severely felt when the country becomes
more thickly settled. We have had a
touch of it in anti-rent troubles in New
York, and it is the great evil and con
stant source of riot and agitation in
firoaf. Ttritain. We are just informed
by telegraph of the purchase of 625,000
nf land in Florida by a syndicate
of Northern capitalists, and we see that

It is a matter of surprise to many peo
nle that srreat States like Texas and
Florida should give away for that is
really what such so-called sales amount
to such vast tracts of land, and thu3
place themselves eventually in - the
power of the men and corporations to
whom they sell. We believe in doing
everything reasonable to encourage en
terprise and development; we believe
in liberal charters and liberal aid, when
practicable, to the building of railroads
and other avenues of trade-commerce,
in encouraging immigration, and all
that kind of thing, but when it comes
to giving away such vast territories
within the limits of a State, we believe
that to be a foolish policy. Suppose the
men who secure these tracts feel dis
posed to form combinations to control
the States, what is to prevent
them from doing it, if they
are the shrewd men they would natur
ally be supposed to be. Owning the
land, as they do, they can people it with
immigrants whom they can control,
pretty much as the New England man
ufacturers control their dependent
laborers. Men who can control thou
sands of square miles and thousands of
people may become a dangerous ele
ment and a curse, in the long run, in
stead of a blessing. It is present good,
at the risk of future evils.
There are reasons, we know, and rea
sons which are considered sufficient to
justify such action on the part of the
States in question. In one Florida
about seven millions of acre3 in all a
territory larger than several of our
smaller States combined were trans
ferred to Hamilton Disston & Co., of
Philadelphia, the object being to have
it drained and made available for agri
cultural purposes, while the Texas ces
sion to a Chicago company of a territory
embracing many hundreds or square
miles was to raise money enough to
build a new State capital, a work which
Texas, nourishing as she is, was amply
able to do. It is bad policy throwing
away dollars to save cents, and a worse
policy to place such vast tracts in the
hands of a few men, who thus become
land kings and, to a certain extent, if
they so choose, dictators of State poli
The chief aim in the existence of the
United States Senate now seems to be
to donate or appropriate money to every
Bcheme, private and public, that may be
suggested. It is a remarkably liberal
body, and gives orders, so to speak, on
Uncle Sam's Treasury, as if that old
gentleman's resources were simply in
exhaustible, and as if the only thing
which troubled him was to find the
shortest way to get rid of his surplus
cash. When one of their body gets
mixed up in a contest for the seat he
occupies, which some other distin
guished gentleman wants, they compen
sate him for the trouble he has been
put to by an allowance of eight or ten
thousand dollars in cash, and assuage
the wounded feelings of the fellow who
was defeated by giving a pretty good
round sum as a healing-plaster. That
would be very considerate and very
clever if it was their own money they
were giving away, but those to whom
the money justly belongs are not dis
posed to look upon it in that light
There is not a day some scheme, of
greater or less proportions, - is not pre
sented which asks for appropriations
from thousands up' to millions, with
pretty fair prospects of favorable and
liberal consideration. If they keep on
in the same lavish spirit they have
manifested thus far, and the House
aon t lop off, it will not take long to
reach the substratum of Uncle Sam's
pile and send him to borrowing.
The increase of immigration since
1877 has been extraordinary. The num
ber of arrivals fell off very greatly dur
ing the hard times, but now it constant
ly runs ahead of calculations. In 1879
the number landed in Castle Garden
was 134,278; in 1880 the number jumped
up to 320,880 ; in 181 to 441,000, and dur
ing this year it will reach 600,000. We

managers to. bring the South totht
front again as Hie section of political
proscription, and the nngroes are being
persuaded that they are very badly
used, we quote the following, which is
in point, from the Philadelphia Times:
If Rhode Island had been a South
ern State during the lust ten years, her
constitution would have be a declared
anti-Republican and representation in
Congress and iu the Electoral College
would have been denied her. Her con
stitution is full of stale despotism and
her discrimination against particular
classes of citizens is in direct conflict
with the spirit if not the letter of the
constitution. The proposition to call a
convention for the revision of the State
constitution was submitted to the peo
ple on Wednesday, but it is probably
defeated, as it has been often defeated
before ; but Rhode Island is a Republi
can State and her disregard of the na
tional constitution is pardoned.

Washington, April 18 Senate.
The Chair submitted a message from
the President transmitting a recom
mendation of the Mississippi river
commission lor an appropriation or
81,010,000 for closing the existing gaps
in the levees in addition to a like sum
already estimated for. The President
urges the early and ravorabie consider
ation of the recommendation and calls
special attention to the importance of
tne subject, uraerea taDiea ana printed
a bill on the subject being now before
The Senate resumed the considera
tion of the Mississippi and Missouri
rivers improvement bill.
Harrison, who was entitled to the
floor, yielded temporarily to Frye, a
member of the committee from which
the bill' was reported, who said that
Northern and Eastern members of the
committee, while appreciating the im
portance of improving navigation, were
opposed to allowing any part of the ap
propriation to be used for the reclama
tion of lands in the river States. They
regarded the existing sentiment caused
by tne recent overnow as a dangerous
one upon wnicn to base legislation.
The unanimous favorable report upon
the measure was due to the proviso
which prevents the use of money for
the rebuilding of levees and this had
been inserted without objection. He
said he made this statement in view of
the intimation thrown out yesterday by
Kellogg tnat an amendment removing
this restriction upon the expenditure of
the money would not be objected to by
the committee, and also in view of
Jonas' amendment applying part of the
appropriation to the levees.
.Harrison, a memDer oi tne comrmc-
tee on the Mississippi River improve
ments, then addressed the Senate at
some length. After asserting the ad
miralty control or the United States
over the entire navigable length of the
Mississippi, and its jurisdiction over
the improvements of navigation and
works necessary to make the river a
safe and constant outlet for commerce,
he said nearly 14,000 navigable miles of
t he main river and its tributaries were
distributed among 18 States and three
Territories, a region producing the
larger part of the grain crop and the
larger part of the cotton crop of the
country, and that the work of provid
ing a cheap and free highway for these
products in their conveyance to con
sumers of the Atlantic States and of
Europe was obviously not a sectional
but a national one. Speaking of the
facilities of cheap transportation and
free competition pertaining to river
navigation as compared with oppres
sive railroad rates, he remarked that
upon the obstructing bars being cleared
away and a uniform low water depth
of 10 feet below St. Louis being attain
ed, the shores of the Mississippi
would practically be at tide water, that
grain will go west and south, as well
as east, to the river whenever rail
road charges are oppressive. No act of
Congress or of the States in his opinion
could prove so efficient in peculating
transportation charges as the law of
competition between the improved na
tural water ways of the country and
railroads. This law bad feasibility and
the sanction that no statutory tariff of
rates could have. Referring to the ex
penditures of the opening of the mouth
of the Mississippi as having devolved
upen Congress an obligation to im
prove the body of the river, he added
that the country would demand that
the plan of improvement shall be
shown to be practicable, and that the
expenditures shall be limited to such
works as are essential to better naviga
tion. He believed that if Congress was
assured that the sums voted would be
applied directly and by the best methods
to that end the necessary appropria
tions would not be withheld.
Harrison continued at considerable
length in advocacy of the bill as it was
Kellogg and Jonas, members of the
committee which reported the bill re
plied to Frye to the effect that the
question as to the levee system was to
be left to the Senate and that they had
reserved their right to offer amend
ments to the bill.
The bill was then laid aside informal
ly until to-morrow and Davis, of West
Virginia, called up the agricultural ap
He stated that the total of the bill as
reported was $414,780; being 19,100 less
than the aggregate as passed by the
House. The bill passed-
Kellogg introduced a bill providing
for the sale of public lands in the States
of Mississippi and Louisiana to the
New Orleans and Northwestern Rail
road company. Referred.
A message from the President was
read on the subject of the circular in
vitation extended to all indepandent
countries of North and South America,
to participate in a general Congress, to
be held in Washington, D. C, on the
22d of November next, for the purpose
of considering and discussing methods
of preventing war between tne nations
of America. Referred to the commit
tee on foreign relations and ordered

On motion of Hammond, of Georgia,
the Senate amendments were con
curred in to the House bill establishing
the United States district courts, with
district officers in the Northern and
Southern Judicial districts of Georgia.
Neal, of Ohio, from the committee on
civil service reform, reported back a
resolution calling on the secretary of
the navy for information relative to the
appointment of professors of mathe
matics in the navy. Adopted.
Hiscock. of New York, chairman of
the committee on appropriations, re
ported a joint resolution appropriating
0405,000 to supply the deficiency in the
appropriation for the public printing
and binding for the current fiscal year.
The joint resolution passed.
The conference committee on the
postal appropriation bill reported a dis
agreement with the Senate conferees,
the point of difference being the Senate
amendment increasing from 8500,000 to
$650,000, the appropriation for special
mail-facilitiea. On all other points the
conferees were practically agreed. The
report was agreed to. A new confer
ence was ordered and Caswell, Came
ron and Ellis were reappointed as con
ferees on the part of the House.
The Utah election case was then
taken up, and Hazleton, of Wisconsin,
was the first speaker in support of the
majority report of the elections com
mittee declaring that neither Cannon
nor Campbell is entitled to a seat as
delegate from Utah Territory.
The committee then waived the ques
tion as to whether Cannon was a natu
ralized citizen, and the whole case had
rested on the question as to whether or
not he was disqualified on account of
being connected with and a champion
of the institution of polygamy.
House, of Tennessee, Combatted the
position taken in the majority report
as violating all law and disregarding
all precedents in claiming the right ana
legality to exclude a Territory from
representation. If the legal conclusions
contained therein were concurred in.
the next Delegate from Utah might be
kept out of his seat because he took his
"whiskey straight," instead of using
The conclusion of his speech was de
voted to a criticism of tne anti-polyga

as providing that the neonlfl of Utah
should be placed under the dominion
of a returning board.
