Gen. Cox has made a faithful Repre

nominated without opposition

bat being a negro it was thought a
good opportunity to
make a little
party cupiud, and so '-mueli ado has
been made about nothing". He has
been dismissed from West IVint, not
on account of his perjury and dis
graceful conduct, but for deficiency
ki his studies.
The Mississii'i'i ovKuu.yw is rece.l
ing, but still there is much suffering
and destitution and it will be several
weeks before the wild waste of wiilers
disappears. It is now thought tVit
the overflow will not materially dimin
ish tho ccttoit crop of this year.
After tho waters sulfide there will be
time enough for tin: planters to culti
vate their crops, and better crops will
be raised because f the soil being
rendered more fcili'". The sediment
from the overflow will pcatly emieh
the land, ind thus the gn-ut calamity
may be a blessing in disguise. The
greatest pecuniary los has lxeti tl.e
drowning of stork. It is remaikaUe
that so few p rsons h:ie been drown-
ed. The needy are br ing supplied
with rations by the government, ;nil.
as most of them are i
feared that thev will U
groes, it is
alizcd and too lav to work.
Toe Chinese question has excited'
much discussion ir Congress and both
branches have passed a bill forbidding
during the next twenty ypars tho im
migration of Chinese laborers into,
this country. For centuries the ports;
of China were closed against tho
world, and no iutercour.se allowed
with foreign bmbariun " as
termed other nations. It has been
only within the past few years that
Europeans aud Americans have been
permitted to enter the Celestial em
pire, and now the Tinted .States are
about to shut out the Chinese from
this country! The excuse- given foe
this strange proceeding by our states
men is the fear that "Chinese cheap
labor" will drive out our native white
labor. If Chilian 'en wero allow ed to
vot tie re would no? he tins war upon
them, I nt they would be courted like
the negroes have been. The North
ern philanthropists, who so deeply
sympathized with Hie nero, seem to
have 11 ) sympathy for the Chinaman.
"Why is this ?
In tho discussion of this bill in Con
gress Senator Jones, of Nevada, w ho
is a stalwart Republican, frankly con
fessed the failure of negro suffrage
Indeed he made ft most I'eiuai'ka' '!
speech for a Republican, from which
we quote tho following:
'Cheap labor and poverty are
twins. Chi'ia had the most cheap
labor, and was tlw poorest country
iu the world. England built the
only railroad in China, and that was
torn up by the Chinese. There is no
wealth without intelligence. The
lorc.es ol nuture are inert till rpjicken-.
ed by the wiutd of genius. A foul
stream always pollutes a pure one. j
No man would weleomo negroes to j
this country, if they wero not already
Hero. I no country woul.i be better

are a curse to the .South, and the '
South would bo incalculably better oft'i
if she could be rid of theiu altogether,
nue men woul.i settle 111 tlie .Soutli
and make her rich and powerful but,
for the presence of the blacks. The

even among tho party asKOci ite.s of
Senator Sherman who longer aeei p'
his denials aud protestations of inno
cence in connection with tho treasu

head of that Department. On the
contrary, all tho assertions which
were made through the newspapers
in connection vi;h the iuvc-stigatior,
and which wero calculated at le.t-t
to dim th b ighlnosss of his nllici tl
reputation, turn out to bo undisput

excuse f ir Mr. Sherman to allege, in
his defense that ho was uot aware of

And the inevitable impression left by
