by n geueral and protracted drought.
In Mississippi the drought was! severe
aud disastrous to the crop in localities,
but being less general in extent, the con

the same cause briugs it down to S3.
Texas averages 96; Coryell reports the
beet crop ever raised, all iu fine condition;

with an increase of 100 per cent, in acre
age: Bexar, a failure of the crop from a

drought of three months continuance.
The condition is 90 in Nebraska, and 94
in Illinois; but in all the remaining
Slates, in which the crsp is of any ac

the minor and descended into a room
where it condensed. The liquor was o
remarkably good flavor, free from the
disagreeable taste of alcohol peculiar to

THE THREATENED REPUBLU

Mr. Marat Ilalstead, of the Cincinnati
Commercial, plainly menaces the country
with rebellion on the part of the Republic
can managers in case of the election of
The Sun here gives Mr. Halsteada
language, and says by way of comment:
Now what does this extraordinarr de
claration of Mr. Halstead's mean 7 What
does this cool-headed man, prominent in
the councils of tbe llepubiican party, the
friend of Hayes, and the strongest news
paper advocats ot his election m the West,
intend to convey to the people of the
country. It is simply this: If Hayes
is defeated, tbe Republicans will begin a
new civil war. They proclaim through
Mr. Halstead that they will refuse to ac
ce.pt tbe Constitutional decision of tbe
ballot-box, and that, following the ex
ample ot the slaveholders in 1861, they
will revolt against the President chosen
by tbe people. 1
The Sun adds: We believe these
threats are empty words, that even the
most lunatical Republicans will not dare
to begin their threatened insurrection,
that the thought of it is born of tbe des
peration of a corrupt partynow standing
on the brink -of justice and of ruin. But
to surely defeat in adyance their avowed
treasonable scheme, and to silence their
traitorous voices, let the people elect Til
den by a majority so overwhelming that
not even Grant, and the most reckless of
his crew, will dare to stand ont against
the will of the country. Grant will leave
the White House unwilling, and. the
Grant party will die hard, but both

The Christian Weekly says : What
is meant by "Speak evil ol no man ? '
Certainly it is not meant that we are
never to speak of any fault or sin of any
person to another, even with the added
qualification, "in his absence." May
not the father and mother talk of their
children's faults one with another ? May
1 not go before the grand jury and teati

I not speak to my pastor of the faults of
one of my fellows in the church for bis
correction, or for the better preservation
of thechurch itself from scandal or cor
ruption ? May I not tell an inquirer the
true character of a discharged servant or
clerk ? Christ spoke evil of Herod when
He said to the Pharisee, "G tell that
fox." Paul spoke evil of Demas and
Ilymeucus and Philetus, ia tbei r absence,
when be wrote to Timothy. We must
use common sense iu the interpretation oi
Scripture, even if some eminent interpre
ters do sometimes dispense with it.
There is no absolute rule for deter
mining what evil speaking is unchristian.
The Christian cannot live by rules.

arc ye surj-pt to ordinances ? If ye be

"Mr. O. H. Sampson, a large capitalist
of Boston has written to the owners of
the Rock Island Factory in Charlotte to
negotiate a purchase or lease, for the pur
pose of establishing ji cotton factory. Mr.
Sampson and Mr. Hall bought the Camp
perdowu Factory in Greenville, a few
years r.go, and enlarged its operations, so
as to make it a brilliant success. The
citizen of Greenville took slock to the
amount of $50,000. Mr. S. wishes to
start here with a capital of 8150,000,
three fourths of which he will put in him
self, if our moneyed men will raise the

as it can grow lis a commercial centre.
Its-future growth must depend upon the
establishment of factories. Mr. B. R.

for eight years, tells us that Mr. S. is a
