remedy for the prevailing depression in

,North Carolina under 'Jc.,*' Mi Alexan
"What iVyour remedy for the present
condition?" he was asked.
'•This," he replied.
M£. Alexander produced a bill which
is before the committee on ways and
means. The proposition is as concise as
the author's speech. The most important
provides "that all vesi&ls built vvithm
the United States by citr/ens thereof, aim
wholly owned and manned by citizens of
the L nited V«tates, engaging in foreign
commerce, shall be allowed to enter and
discharge their returning cargoes at any
port of the United States, free of all cus
tom duties: provided, that said vessels
shall have canied full outgoing cargoes
from the United States, three fourths at
least of which cargoes consisted of agri
cultural products of the United States. 1 '
The other sections simply provide regu
lati'ons to carry"out this idea.

THE SOUTH S DEVELOPMENT.

more. in its IV-aie of Febru iv 13. bay.-:
''While there is no miitl.ed iucrease in
the organisation of new iudufctrial enter
prises throughout the South, then.' is a
steady, solid advance, and also a grow
ing confidence with the leading capital
ists of the country that the South i> the
best field in America for investment.
Many plans of great magnitude are being
worked out, and with a return of activi
ty in investment and business intcjesis in
the country at large the South will again
become the center of development, and
'future.operations will probably be on a
larger scale and by heavier capitalists
than anything which the South has seen
yet. v Among the more important under
takings reported during the week are
the very extensive iron and steel making
and town-building operations to be com
menced by Alex. A. Arthur, the founder
of Middlesborough, in connection with
some of the foremost iron-makers and
largest capitalists of the North. This
enterprise, or rather these combined en
terprises. will probably draw m t less
than $ J0,0!j0.000 into that section within
the next 12 or 18 months. At Tuscaloosa,
Ala., £~30.000 coal and coke company has
b'.en organised, in connection with con
tract-previously made, to secure a railroad

LIFE OF STONEWALL JACKSON.
A Sweet, Inspiring Story of the Re
vered and Beloved Confed
The "Life and Letters of Gen. Thos.
J. Jackson by his wife. Marv Anna Jack
son," has been issued from the press of
Harper & Bros, with an introduction' by
Rev. Or. Henry Field.
Writing from the other side Dr. Field
says, "The time has come when we can
do justice to those who were once in
arms against us.' v "It is only a few
months since Gen. Sherman was borne
through our streets, and among those
who followed at his bier was his great
adversary, (ion. JohustoD, who. by a sin
gulir coincidence, survived him but a
few weeks. Thus the warriors who once
"to battle rode' at the head of hostile
armies, now fall into line in the great
procession to that realm of silence in
which all enmities are buried."
In this bearing of our great soldiers
tow ards each other, they who were "first
in war" were also "first in peace," and
it were well that they should remain "first
in the hearts of their countrymen," as
the leaders whom we are to follow in the
work of i\union Why then, recall the
bitter memories of a war that is ended:
"Let the dead past bury its dead." But out
of the dead pasf comes the living present.
"It is a poor reconciliation which is ob
tained by only agrt eing never to speak of
the past." "Men who are honest and
brave have nothing to be ashamed of.
aud nothing to conceal."' Lessons of
heroism, of patriotism, of patient en lur
raucc may be learm d from illustrious
examples on both sides, the blessed fru ts
of whfch are to broaden character, to en
large sympathy, and to teach respect for
a foe who honestly and courageously dif
fers from us.
Already "Stonewall" Jackson has be
come a national hero, and the North
(without the tenth r love '*nd '".ero-vvor
ship for liiiu that inspires every Southern
heart.) proudly claims him as the highest
type of an American soldier. Dr. Field
says: "He was the most" picturesque
figure of the war. None of the other
leaders had a personality so unique. In
Jackson, there were two men in one that
seemed absolutely incompatible- the
highest military ge ius. with a religious
fervor that bordered on fanatacism, a
union of soldier ami saint for which we
must go back to the time of Cromwell.
His character is one of the most fascina
ting studies of American history."
The world has hoard so much of Jack
son through t«o previous Biographies,
that it will hardly be prepared for the
revelation that awaits it in the charming
book before us. Its purpose is not to re
iterate what has already been said by
able and loyal pens, nor to portray in
fresh columns the matchless Confederate
hero, but to disclose to the public, for
the first time, another.phase of his char
acter, not less attractive because so dif
fcrent from the "iron man of war," as
many have only regarded him. Another
beautiful illustration of the lines that,
"The bravest are the tendercst,
The loving are the daring."

Mis Jackson has, happily, given no
minute accounts of battles, and they are
only introduced as forming apart of (Jen;
Jackson's life, from which they couhl/
not be dissevered. The th -t chapters of
the memoir are devoted to a brief history
of the Jackson ancestois people of old
English ami Scotch Itish stock, a deline
ation of whose sturdy, vigorous natures
clearly reveal whence the great military
leader inherited his indomitable will, hU
energy and tranquil courage. '"The b>y
was father of the man." In childhood,
he exhibits wonderful determination in
surmounting obstacles and accomplishing
whatever he undertakes. This is very
interestingly narrated in hi.s trying ex
perience when attempting to enter West
Point, his feuo.sei|ueui i:ia!s, and final"
"over coming" of them all by the end of
his four years' career as a cadet.
While in the military academy he com
piled for his own use- a set of rules an 1
maxims, Relating to morals, manners,
dress, choice of friends and aims in life.
Perhaps the most charade;istit of these
was: 'Vou maybe whatever you re
solve to be. 1 "' Another was; '•Through
life let your principal object be the Wis
charge of duty. Disieganl public opin
ion when it interferes with duty."
Then there comes "M" .iv»s to Action.
F rst, regard for one's own happiness*
and for the family iu which you live.
Secoud, stri''e to attain a ver\ high ele
vation of cuaracter and a high standard
