A MOST DIFFICULT FHOBLEIIL .
In the British Musenm, in London.
cuinent T?o precious to all Eng-
shmen, and known as Magna Char'
, is preserved with the utmost care.
t is more than six hundred and six-
-six years old. i This Great Charter
f .liberty was extorted by the Barons
om King John, in 1215; It is the
institutional basis of English liber-
ties, and the old paper is dearer than
lfe to the ; average Englishman,
'fhis is indeed the Great Paper of all
time. At Runnymede, on the river
Tybames, June is, 11215, not far from
Ipndon, the King put his hand to
this most important of all - extant
dlcuments, and in signing bis name
gl?e to Englishmen liberty and re
dress of grievances. Life, liberty
and property are . protected in - this
Great Charter. : The document or
paer is 6till to be seen, and the tree
under whieh the King sat still stands,
Id, decayed, but still- alive and well
protected. . ; ' "
e are reminded of these things
in I the history of
Ireland and the
policy oi tne I5ntish liovernment.
It is one of repression and : horror.
TWe liberties of the Irishman are clo-
" -veil do-;n by the
law; of Coercion.
Mi -nn spirited - away; to prison,
aiil tiii l-r that i extraordinary act no
: ?jr a V'.-r i: j nrp&j corpus can rendu
th-.n. Olx-Ministry inay do to Irishn
raca that -which King: John in the
'-th-.wnth century could not do to
an EnglishmanJ jit can be seen ho W
great a wrong lo liberty is done when
we tesnember this .fact. :i. When an'
Irishman is. imprisoned under the
Coercion act a great blow is given to
the preat Charter and its principles'
are impaired most sadly. No plea
can ever justify . such a wrong and
sucl an outrage. : If . the Coercion
law applied ; to England , it ' would
dest "oy the Government itself, and
convert the most i liberal and pro-
gresive of alt monarchies into a re
public. The people would rise up
and Iget rid of monarch and nobility.
: The present seeming lulling of the
storm in Ireland may be misleading.
Mr. Gladstone seems ! to think the,
worst is over. " A few days ago he
declared in a speech at the banquet i
of tie Lord Mayor that the Irish
people were resolved to give the i
Land act a full trial. If we may!
employ American slang in dealing!
with Iso illustrious a statesman and i
so serious a matterV we . may affirm
that in this declaration of assurance
'the Premier is "a little too previous.'
He must await the issue. It is true
that orty thousand tenants have
applied to the Land Court, but then
this isja small number compared with
the whole. Then the decision of
these cases, it is thought, will occupy
yearB. 4ieTl there are 45,000 British
soldiers in Ireland to preserve order
and tb repress j the Land Leagu.
The JSf York Sun says ; .-.
"Itisjadmitted, however, hy the Dublin
orresnoodent . of the London Timet who
may fairlv be considered an -unwilling wit-
Jnes8, that in Wexford, Clare; Kerry,' parts
of CorsJ ana other counties, there is a gene
ral determination not to pay. It is also ao
knowledeed that there has been as yet very
i few inflfftnees ofia voluntary agreement be-
iween lanaioros ana tenants zor tne reoac
tion of rents. It is evident, therefore, that
the mass of landlords, at all events are by
no means prepared to accept the decisions
of the Bub-commissions as final, but expect
to see them reversed or seriously modified
upon appeal. "
Then! there is great and growing
discontent among the landlords. They
are very much excited over the cut
ting down of rente and the great
losses they . are i forced to p ustain.
The J&m gays; v , - -
"As a rule, therefore; s theV refuse to cut
down their rente a penny by private agree

! A FALSE SHOVING. j
Mr. 'Atkinson, the Boston statisti-;
cian, has a strong recruit in one Ci I.!
Barker, all the way from the State of j
Maine.. -He .has been to Atlanta, has!
seen for himself, .has returned to his
own sterile Statej' ' with ,a note!-book
full of observations, and has furnished)
the Lewiston Journal .with anac-j
count of i the poverty-smitten: South:
that would -be painful,' qyerwhelm-j
ingly so, if it were not so very ludi-j
crous. ; Mr. Barker, unlike Mr. .' At-j
kinsbn, , does not even mean ' veil. '
His sole aim is to underrate the South
and its advantages that he may' en-j
courage the New England heart, and
make his people believe that under noj
circumstances can the former ever;
become the rival of the latter in cot-i
ton manufaetunng. " It appears' that,
this i Northern "cheil":. who came
South' 'takm notes" ;, m- order toi
'prent . em" i never saw much, ,t if i
anything,; J" beyond Atlanta. He
confined himself to that flourishing
city where cotton milling has not been
carried to the degree -of ; excellence
that it has at the four chief manu
facturing Georgia centres, namely,
Columbus, Augusta, Graniteville and
Langley. If he wished - really to
know just what the South could j do

Mr. Barker is' of the opinion that
Mainacan beat Georgia in manufac
turing ' eotton. ' The proposition " oit.
its face is an absurd one ; We have!
often pointed out the advantages tbe
South has over Massachusetts, and!
Hve will not go into the matter again
at this time. - Other ' New . En-;
glanders, with possibly ; as ',-much
experience and 'intelligence 'a MrJ
Barker possesses, " have aclmitted
the superiority, and recently Barker
has discovered actually that, 4he cli
mate of Georgia is not as favorable
for millitig as .the delightful climate
of Maine where it .is winter eight
months of the twelve." He says that
in the matter of capital and labor of
course" Maine . beats by a long, dis-:
tanee. He draws a very dark picture
of all ne saw, . Npthiug i struck liim
favorably,; -The people are thriftless

Georgia mills have done well, arid the
Chronicle says, the .mills in .Augusta
and vicinity have .done about as well
as the mill we have been considering.
Mr.' Barker is barking'up the" wrong
tree when he goes to work by ' sys
tematic ..misrepresentation to. prove

We did not seethe remark: but wo
learn that the Augusta ' Chronicle ad-
mitted that the Southern cotton mills
had not made- or could not make print
cloths. ; This is a mistake. . The Will
mington Cotton Mills have been mak
ing print oloths for a long time and of
excellent: quality:' ; At least two hunj
dred bales have been! sold to an-Atlanta
housed They fetch, ine'Northern
markets !readily "f rom'ir toi of a cen$
more than the Northern goods, and
when there is :an advance- the Wil
mington goods always ' get the in
crease of 'price several days ahead .of
the regular market. vV- T
The time will xome when all grades
'of cottori goods' will' 'be mac(e . in tne?
South, including the best ! bleachings.
Already North Carolina woollen mills
are : manufacturing ' cassimeres and
other, fabrics of goodquality, that in
durability,1 finish - and ;! value i much
excel Northern goods , of .the .same
rice. - Some choice specimens are on
exhibition at the Atlant a Exposition.
