Signor Sagasta's accession to power has !
bcenTikhtly interpretecrby r the Si)aui8h
people as a testimony oy iue ,? overeigu
to its loyalty. Regarded originally as
the natural adversary of advanced Liber
rdism, the young Prince has so reigned
that ho has become accepted by the an cient
adherents; of I Republicanism. -.. Al
though, however, the warmth of the sen
timent may have been intensified by re
cent events, it is of! no transient or tern
porary character. Under Senor Cauovas
des Castillo, as under the administration
of Senor Sagasta, Spaniards have felt
that their King neither desired nlr would
consent to encroachupon their liberties.
He has throughout shown himself con
tent with the prerogatives the Constitu
tion bestowed upon him. jj ..
: He. has proved, besides, that ty? knows
how to emjdoy them for the public wel
fare. Young still in years, he has expe
rienced vicisitudes and tasted of sorrows
which mature and cultivate as well as
sober. Never has. a trace been dis
cerned iu his demeanor of exultation at
the. change iu his fortunes which lifted
him in a moment from exile to a throne.
No party or politicians have eyer been
permiyed even to suspect that tie King
harbored dislike of mpu who had driven
him and his family into- banishmeut.
Without attempting to play joft faction1
against faction. lie has had tho happy art
of maintaiuing the undisputed predomi
nance of an arbiter and umpire over all.
It is something into tlje bargain that Jie
possesses the gifts f the orator, and that
by the unanfmous evidence of foreigners
aud natives, he is admirably fitted for
the center pf a royal pomp which Castil
liaus and Arragouese have not learned to
despise. -LoiuUn Times. i ,j

Cotapasi, in 1738, threw its fiery rock
ets 1W0 feet above thie crater, Svlulo in
1754 the blazing mass struggling loir; au
outlet rohfed so tbat- its awful voice wtu
heard at a distance of more thau 600 miles.
In 1797 the crater of Tunguragua, oue of
the great peaks of theAndes, flung out
torrents of mud, which dammed up the
rivers, opened new lakes, and in valleys
1,000 feet .wide made deposits GOO feet
deep. v The stream from Vesuvius, which,
in 1737, passed through Tetredel Greco,
contained 33,000,000 cubic feet ef solid
matter, and in I7U3, whett-Terre del Greco
was destroyed, a second time, the mass cf
lava amounted to 45,000,000 cubic feet. In
1760 iEtna poured forth a flood which cov
ered 84 square miles oif surfaceand meas
uredonly l,000,000,00q cubit feet. On this
occasion the sand andj scoria formed the

feet; high. The stream thrown out by
Etna in, 1810 was in motion at , the rate,
of a yard a day for niue months after the
eruption ; aud. it is oil record that the
lava of th same mountain, after a terri
ble eruption, was 'not thoroughly cool and
consolidated for fen years after the event.
In the eruption of Vesuvius, A. D. 79, the
scoria and ashes vomited forth far ex
cceded the entire bulk of-the mountain j
while in 1GG0 Etna disgoiged: 20 times
its own maSs. Vesuvius has sent its ashes
as IfarXCBtinoj'.yria, and
Egypt ; it hurled stones eight-pounds in
weight to Pompeii, a distance of six miles,
where similar masses were tossed np 2,000
feet above the summit. Cotapaxi has pro
jected a block of 100 cubic, yards in vol
ume a distance of nine miles aud Sum
bawa, in 1815, daring the most terrible
eruption on record, sent its : ashes as far
as Java, a distance of three hundred miles,
of surface, and out of a population of 15,
000 souls only 2.0 escaped. -

An Assassin Tracked aud Arres"ted.
Cincinnati, Dec. 29. A special from Gore
Ofiio, says tire authorities placed a guard
about the house of Mr. Terrell, who was as
sassinated lr st night, to prevent obliteration
of the track 3 of the assassin. As soon as
daylight came they traced the assassin to

"Not! if it was My Boy.

Mann, the eminent educator, del iveif--ed

After 'the exercises had closed, in. pri

Mr. Mann upon his statement, and

A-tianta j ; Ga.,' tDec. 21,Four
State idisplajii' in . the International
Cotton Exposition .command general
attention, bth because of what they
arend1 what they suggest. : These
are from the two Carolinas, from Geor
gia, and from Florida!; While these
displays have many things in com
mon, each has important specialities
that are not found elsewhere. . ,
North Carolina! the border land of
the South so far as" agricultural pro
(Jucts are concerned, intrusted the col
lection and , arrangement of her ex
hibit to the; Hon. Montford MpGee,
her Commissioner of Agriculture. He
did not confine himself to the products
of the soil, shut collected everything
that would set forth the natural re
sources and the manufacturing prog
ress of North Carolina. Owing to
the particular topography of the coun
try, this State has probably a wider
range of food prod nets than anyjother
in the Union. In general terms the
State-may be described as a slope, ex
tending wesfward from the sand banks
that form ,the Hatteras coast to the
Tennessee line, where it reaches an
altitude of 8,000 feet above the ocean
level, the highest land in this country
east of the! Rocky mountains. This
vasf area naturally divides itself into
three belts : one, about fifty miles
wide, tending from Newbern to
Wilmington, where climate and soil
are attapted, to semi-tropical products;
second, westwardly to the Piedmont
region, in which section tobacco, and
all the cereals flourish ; and third, the
mountain region proper.- In these
several tracts are found all the pro
ducts of the temperate zone and many
of tlie semi-tropical. These Commis
sion McGee has skilfully arranged so
that any visitor can see at a glance
what are the natural products of any
desired locality. "With these he dis
plays the products of mills and facto
ries that have sprung up since 1865,
aud the native wines that illustrate
the value and importance of the vine
yards of his State.
Commissioner Loring, in his ad
dress two weeks aero, said that North
Carolina, which before the war had
no standing as a cotton State, now
stood third on the list. The causes
which enabled her to make this great
advance in the short space of fifteen
year deserve consideration. Of these
the first in importance is the the fact
thatthere are more small holdings in
this than in any other Southern State
This subdivision into small estates
operates as it does in New England.
The , people are thrifty, they study
small economies, ami they cultivate
their land with greater skill than' is
practiced on the great -plantations;
They also raise raost of the food they
consume, and what cotton they 'make
counts as profit. This beiug the case,
the. line of cotton cultivation has grad
ually extended back' from ; the cast
until it has at least reached the foot
hilts of the Blue Ridge. While the
area of cultivation lias been enlarged,
the quality of the staple has also been
improved,; and at the last Cincinnati
exposition the award for the.first qual
ity of upland cotton was? received by
North Carolina.! Tlie energy and
shrewdness of the people of .that State
are evidenced in the great number o
small mills that has been built since
the war. More than eighty -cotton
factories, great and small are now run
ning, all of which, with a solitary, ex
ception, are owned by,; small share
holders living in "their!, immediate
neighborhood.' In other Words, the
profits of the cotton patches are inves
ted in mills, that the planter .may
make additional gaius by converting
his staple into yarn. Without an ex
ception these mills' have prospered
and many; new ones are now building.
For these, the many rivers, flowing
from the mountains to the sea furnish
ed an unlimited supply of water
power. 4 1 ;: -:'"-;:' " ;- -!
; Aniong thei lextils'1n: this display
are some fine blankets ;made . at mills
in burry county. Ihese mills find a
home markTt for! their entire produc-
ion, and have never been fully able
o supply the demand, Their wool
is brought to their doors by the far
mers of the country but they have not
sufficient capital to tako all that is of
fered. ( The fleeces are from Merinos
and Southdowns, both of-which breeds
of sheep do weJl everywhere - ia the
hState.-. In the sections - east of the
mountains the climate lias been found
oo warm for the Cotswolds, but they
flourished on the Blue : Ridge farms.
There have been several sales at the
exposition of woollen niachioery, tlie
purchasers intending i o add i this
branch of iudustry to their North
Carolina cotton mills. .
That North Carolina is to be the
great vintage State of the Atlantic
coast seems to be ons of the probabili
ties. The vine flourishes everywhere
throughout its length and breadth.

the vines of which were so matted and

who all remain at their old homes.

good wages. The consequence is that
