Senator Morgan, of Alabama, has
been interviewed io Washington' by
a correspondent of the Louie ville
Courier-Journal. - The account of
the interview w very long, but inter-?
eauin; The views of the able Sena-
iif WVre business-like. He thinks the
"almighty dollar" will control and
fhape' the Garfield- Administration
ami not, blind Stalwrartisra. Busiuess

lie aays Garfield Was elected really
by the negro vote in the North, and
that the result of the .election was
'ii t a condemnation of the South by
the buoiiiees'men of the country, ile
very pertinently and truthfully says:

He thinks the Northern . people
ii wii consult their pockets their ma
terial interests, and knowing how
much their own prosperity is involved
in the prosperity ol the South they
will stand by their own iiiteresti, as
they can 'not afford to aid any party
.in the mere manufacture of political
capital" to their own very serious in
jury. , . , !
There is one view he presents that
is important and interesting. It con
cerns negro, labor. He .i thinks the
negroes will gradually leave,' in part,
the South and be distributed through
out the , country. Bat ... this, view is
not dispiriting. He says ; the white
Libor, of the South already, makes
3,000,000 bales of cotton. If neces
. sary the growth of the great staple
can be limited to white production
to the 3,000,000 bales. It will fetch
. the higher price if this (is done. . He
says while immigration will come in
is coming in. -.. We quote:
"Our lands sod climate invite immigra

care of their own children. They are noV

Just now certain Northern writers
can find nothing specially superior in
the pro8e and poetieal writings of
Foe. V Within (a few. months we ave
glanced over; several productions of
the kind )n; which Poe was spoken oil
as a man of clever abilities, but his
4qual or superior could be found in
almost any town br publishing' office
in the North, : In Europe his.repnts
tion is quite different. i.Spnie; years

havp lauded him excessively. : : A

Written wniob is more than have been

singular parts how comes this phe

yilgiUM- vuiuo amas oajv as- iw
writer of peculiar gifttf,: He quotes
the opinioiTl of ' . the lata eminent
Horace Bin ney Wallace, ooe of the
most fastidious of Amerioan scho
lars." Mr. Wallace, a Northern man,
mind you, held that "as an analytical
critic, Poe possessed abilities quite
unrivalled in this country, and, per
haps, on the other aide of iHe water."
He saya he had "admiration and re-1
spect for the masculine and j aoute
nnderstandine" of our greatest South-

and vigorous" and lie "possessed un
