Crime on the Increase.
The criminal record of the last six months,
as indicated in the press of the country both
Jsorth and South, is absolutely appalling-, and
calls loudly upon civil authorities and the
public to adopt, if practicable, some more
efficient measures for the protection of hu
man life. We .find our exchanges, from day
to day, filled with accounts of the most re
volting murders and other crimes perpetrated
in almost every city, town and neighborhood
throughout the country. This slate of things
unfortunately indicates a growing disregard
of law, a reckless tempting of its penalties,
and a disposition on the part of the passion
ate and lawless, to resort unhesitatingly to
deeds of violence and murder, to revenge
any real or fancied injury. A New York
City paper reports as many as ten murders
that have occurred there within the short
space ot time of one week, and most of them
under circumstances of peculiar atrocity.
Respectable and uuoffending citizens bave
been shot down in cold blood. Similar deeds
of violence have recently occurred in the
States ot Kentucky and Tennessee and in
other parts of the South. The simple recital
of these painful facts is enough to chill one’s
heart with horror —and when we come to
think of the fearful consequences to others,
the magnitude and fiendishness of these of
fences are increased a hundred fold. In
many cases a loving wife is murdered, chil
dren made fatherless, and a wide circle of
relatives and friends are plunged with the
What is the lesson that communities ought
to learn from crimes like these, now becom
ing of such frightfully frequent occurrence ?
We think that one thing that ought to be
learned is the necessity of sterner, and of
especially more speedy justice in the pun
ishment of offenders against the laws. For
years before the war there had been a con
stantly increadng immunity secured to crim
inals, through the quirks aud quibbles of the
law, it? delays and uncertainties; and, as a
consequence of the mawkish sentimentalism
that has poisoned the public mind on the
subject of capital punishment, until it has
become to be understood that it by no means
follows that the trausgressor will be hanged,
because it is clearly proved that he has been
guilty of deliberate murder. The reckless,
presuming upon the aid of lawyers, the in
efficiency of the courts and the looseness of
public sentiment, confidently calculate that
their chances for the gallows or the peniten
tiary are quite small, and that, at least, they
can postpone any punishment until the
crime and its attendant circumstances of
horror have passed away from public notice.
The events of the last few years prove that
their calculations in regard to the compara
tive safety of murderers are but too well
founded. To correct this uufortuate state of
things in many parts of the country, the in
fliction of the extreme penalty of the law
ought to follow the conviction and sentence
with the least possible delay. Unless the
course of retributive justice is made more
sure and speedy, there will soon be in many
localities no security for human life. *•

That they are, on the oontury ot Neptunian
origin, and were at one time in a solt condi

grains of sand and crystals on the'surface of
some of them, but also by iuclosurc of cer

The Late Prime Minister of Canada.—
Sketch of his Life—How a Canadian
Rebel became the Chief of the Govern
The Toronto Leader gives the following
obituary of Sir E. P. Tache, who died at
Quebec on Sunday last:
Descended from an ancient French family,
Sir E. P. Tache was born at St. Thomas, on
the Lower St. Lawrence, 1795; and was
therefore about seventy years of age at the
time of his deatii. At the age of twenty-six
he found in the breaking out of the war of
1812 an opportunity of gratifying those mili
tary aspirations in which the first glimpse of
the development of his character becomes
apparent; and he became an officer in the
The close of the wvar left him, as it had
found him, without a profession ; and it was
now that he studied the profession of medi
cine, which he followed till 1841, when for
the first time he entered Parliament. This
would have been rather late In life—he was
then 46 years of age—to begin to take an in
terest in politics; but if he had not before
been elected to tbe Legislature he had not
been indifferent to political affairs. lie felt
toward the old ante-responsible Government
regime of Lower .Cauada very much as the
majority of his compatriots felt.
When the Lower Canada Assembly refus
ed to vote supplies, aud the Imperial Govern
ment cut the knot of tbe constitutional diffi
culty by seizing tbe public chest, Dr. Tache
was one of those who thought and had the
courage to say that this act of Imperial ab
solutism dissolved the connection between
the colony and the mother country. On the
16lh June, 1837, when Louis Joseph Papin
eau was making the whole country ring with
his complaiuts against the Government of
Lower Canada, backed by that of England, a
monster meeting ot the two counties of L’-Is
let and Bellechasse, was held near St.
At this meeting Papineou was received
with something like military honors—armed
cavalry and the booming of cannon—by Dr.
Tache and Messrs. Lalbutniue, Morin, Fortier
and Fournier. Dr. Tache moved a resolu
tion which was in effect a declaration ot in
dependence. A wide gulf separates these
times from those of later date, when Dr.
Tucbe gets credit for having said—the
speech owes its currency not to the steno-
but to the recollection of one of his
colleagues—that the lust guu that would be
fired in favor of British supremacy in Cana
da, would be fired by a French Canadian.
Sir E P. Tache remained in the Assembly
as a private member, from 1841 to 1847. In
the winter of 1847-8, the Liberals had carried
a large majority of the eleclious; and when
the Lafontaine-Baldwin Ministry was form
ed, Dr. Tache became Commissioner of Pub
lic Works. In December, 1849, he became
Receiver General. This office was held by
Dr. Tache till near the close of May, 1856,
when he reached the top of the political lad
Sir Allan McNab had for some time been
Premier. But the gout deprived him of the
power of attending to his duties, and some of
his colleagues intrigued against him, aud
some of them resigued as a means ot ousting
hint from the Cabinet. Sir E. P. Tache, who
was probably not in the intrigue by which he
was to profit, became Premier.
Tired of the cares of public life,Dr. Tache
resigued the Premiership and his two offices
—for which he had taken only one salary—
on the 24th November, 1857. Soon after he
was loaded with honors by the head of a
Government whom he, twenty-one years be
fore, charged with having ruptured the con
tract which existed between Canada and the
Iu November, 1858, he received the honor
of knighthood at the bands of Queen Victo
ria, and iu July, 1860, he Mas appointed* lo
the honorary ranks of colonel iu tbe Bri
tish Army and aid-de-camp to the Queeu.
He was also a knight of tbe Roman Order of
St. Gregor}*. From November, 1857, to the
Spring of 1864, Sir E. P. Tache was per
mitted to enjoy retirement, when he was
again summoned to public life as the head of
the new coalition.
The vicissitudes of the' life of Sir E. P.
Tache are those of his country ; cirfcum
stances bad much to do with his position
and his political fortunes ; making them one
thing to-day and another to-morrow. Ho
was not a mere cynic ; but showed elasticity
of temper enough to be* satisfied with the
reforms he had asked, in the dark days of
colonial misrule, and to change with the
triumphs of reform from a revolutionary
radical to one of the staunchest upholders of
British authority in Canada.
The Gold Regions of Canada. —lt is ¥)ut
a few years since the auriferous deposits of
Canada were considered of sufficient im
portance to warrant investigation, but of
late they have attracted considerable atten
tion and the investment of some capital from
tbe States. The best knqwn mines are
those of the Chaudeire region, located on
rivers Gilbert, Famine and Du Loup, about
seventy miles east from Quebec. The only
place, however, where laborers are actually
mining is on the Gilbert river, a short dis
tance from its mouth. Here are some forty
or fifty men, who are said to average from
$3 to $4 a day.
A, company is erecting large works on the
river, with a flume of 2,000 feet in length.—
The river takes its name from that of the
Gilbert family, who own land upon its
banks. About thirty years since, a daughter,
while leading a horse to water, picked up a
yellow pebble about as large as a pigeon's
egg. Her father, thinking it of some value,
look it to a Quebec jeweller, who paid him
forty dollars for it. Such a discovery in a
Yankee neighborhood would have caused an
investigation into matters very soon, but the
real development of that region has but just
The Gilberts now let their lands to miners
tor fiom SIOO to S3OO an acre. Agents from
the United Slates are prospecting in the re
gion about, but find the terms too high for
profitable investments. Companies, however,
arc building road3 aud otherwise preparing
to develop the value of the country.
Another mineral region attracting attention
is a iew miles from the foot of Memphrema
gog, and about ten miles trom Sherbrooke.
The most extensive mine in this locality is
said to be owned by a Boston gentleman.
There are also other mines in various stages
of progress, owned entirety or in part by
persons in the States. While some of tjie
talk about the value of the Canadian lands
is possibly for speculative purposes, there is
little doubt that the gold/egion, if properly
developed, will afford a profitable return-
The chief obstacle to an early success seems
to be the exorbitant rates at which all pri
vate owners hold their lauds, and the need
of some liberal policy to render them acces
In Nova Scotia the product of the mines
for 186* was $259,032, an average of $406
for each miner engaged. Most ol the capi
tal invested here is from the States.— Boston

The VerrHil)' of Regaining »he Olil Cot
ton Crops—How to Do It.
[From the New York Times.)
Cotton is n6t king. That is settled. But
for all that, it i9 a magnate of tbe very first
rank. And it will be a most serious mistake
not to be prompt to recognize it as such, in
this new era. It must hereafter, as before,
tie tbe great regulator of our foreign ex
changes, and thereby the great conservator
of our financial soundness. Herein it ba9 a
certain divine right which we could not alter
if we would. Providence has ordained that
the belt of North America embraced between
the Atlantic and the Rio Grande, covered by
the Southern States of this Union, shall by
tbe region adapted above all others, upou the
face ot the globe, for the growth of the best
qualities of tbe cotton-plant. This can be
said of no other American product ion. Wheat
and all the grains, sugar, rico, tobacco, every
agricultural staple produced by us, can be
raised elsewhere, nearly if not quite as well.
Other lands are dependent upou us for them
only to a very limited* measure. They can
meet but comparatively little of the heavy
balunce that yearly accrues against ns.
Without cotton, gold, tbe life-blood of our
currency, must be continually drained away
to satisfy these demands.
How soonest to get our cotton production
back to its amount before tbe rebellion—five
millions of bales—is one of tlie most impor
tant problems of the day. Two things only
are in the way: a civil insecurity, repelling
capital, and the disorganized coudiiiou of
The first of these we trust will soon disap
pear. We cannot reconcile it with any cur
rent idea of the practical sense ol'Ameiicans
to suppose that the Sputhern people will
prefer to be in discord rather than harmony
with the National Government. The sober
second thought will prompt them to bury all
past resentments, and to co-operate with the
government for an establishment ot every
civil safeguard necessary to universal protec
tion. We cannot help believing that after a
little time every Souttiem State will exhibit
tbe same respect for all the great personal
rights, as prevails here in the. North ; that
all forms of political and social persecu -
tion will disappear, and that capital will be
able to plant itself anywhere in the South
without the slightest misgiving of any soil.
The more serions difficulty is the disor
ganized condition of labor. We have no
feeling but contempt for the men who are
eternally fining fault with the feedmen.—
Doubtlesss they are faulty enough; but
what Gov. Johnson, of Georgia, said of them
the other day, in the City Hall of Macon, is
true to the latter: “Under the peculiar ciicum
stances with which they arc surrounded, no
people ever behaved better than the blacks
have done.” Us course, they do not easily
adapt themselves to their new situation;
probably not more easily than do the mas
ters themselves. * * * *
It is doubtful whether they ever contract in
dustrious habits as freedmen which will
make good the amount of labor forced out
of them under the old system, it is certain
that, at the very best, this cannot be re
alized for many years yet. If we rely upon
emancipation to restore soon the old cotton
crop realized by slavery, we shall certainly
be disappointed. The training of the freed
men to be capable gos this will require far
longer time than we can afford to wait.—
There must be other resources and other
helps. What are they ?
Northern and European laborers must be
encouraged to become tillers of southern
soil. Applications have already been made
to our Foreign Emigrant Commissioners,
from Southern planters, for field hands. The
pretence that white men cannot work under
the blaze of a Southern sun is too stale now
to be heeded by anybody. The non-slave
hokling Germans of Texas long ago proved
that Southern cotton-raising is no greater
tax upon tbe white man's constitution than
Northern corn-raising. The lands which pro
duce cotton are generally dry and healthy,
and the white laborer needs only to be a
little careful to be able to meet with peifect
security every requirement in the cultivation
of cotton, from the fiist plant to the last
But the great agent, for the agricultural re
storation of the South ought to be labor
saving machinery. It is this which has ena
bled the great Northwest to develop its re
sources at sueli a marvelous rate. It. was
this which made good the great drain of the
strongest laboring men of that section, occa
sioned by the war ; so that, though hundreds
of thousands were taken from the field to
tight through the four years’ war, the crops,
instead of being reduced in amount, actually
became larger than ever. It is a well known
fftet, that labor-saving farm implements en
able the farmers of the Northwest to accom
plish three times the amount of labor that
they could without them, with the same
number of teams and men. These imple
ments are applicable, good judges say, to the
planting aud cultivation of coLton iu all its
stages up to the picking, which must be done
by band. Yet they have never been used for
that purpose to any extent, worth mention
ing. Slavery never had enterprise enough
to venture upon new methods. * *
* * It was content with mere brute
force to produce its gains. Being rid of it,
an opening is now made such as did not exist
before, for the great inventions of civiliza
tion. If a prompt resort is had to them, and
if their management is consigned to intelli
gent*and faithful hands, they will very soon
restore the old cotton crops, however back
ward the mass of the freedmen' may be in
coming up to the white standard of. work.
The importance of securing this end speedily
forbids its being left to tbe contingency of
tbe disposition or indisposition of the freed
meu to do regular labor. It should be sub
ject to no contingency; and this may be se
cured by relying primarily upon white jabbr,
and its mighty auxiliaries, labor-saving im
The queen of the Sandwich Island*.
The New York Sunday Mercury having
spoken of tbe widowed Queen of the Sand
wich Islands, in terms of ridicule, au Eng
lish gentleman, Wm. St. Maar Bingham,late
Colonel in the Royal Life Guards and Artil
lery, Hawaiian Army, has addressed a letter
to the editor iu vindication of the Queen, in
which he says:
Her Majesty Queen Emma, consort of his
late Majesty Kaincbameha IV, is the daugh
ter of Doctor Rook, au able English physi
cian, a gentleman and a scholar, who has
resided on the islands tor upward of forty
years (I believe now dead), and a native"
princess his wife, a descendent of the grand
father of the present monarch. She, Queen
Emma, is a lady of great personal beauty
and highly accomplished, with an education
second to no lady in the United States; and
so exemplary has her conduct ever been,that
the voice of slander has never dared to raise
itself against her. She is purity and virtue
itself. She has not the dark tinged skin of
tiie native of the South Sea Islands, but is as
fair as any light brunette in this city, her
hair black as the raven’s wing, andiustas
glossy, in long silky tresses aud glorious
But why describe what I trust you may
yet see! and for which my poor pen would
be quite inadequate. Iu short, you can
scarcely trace in her beautiful complexion
any of the blood of heT native land. But
even should you do so, is there disgrace or
ridicule to be attached to her for that ? Nog
decidedly no. She ought, if any, be more
honored for it, as being of a race which, in
despite of surrounding adverse circn instances,
have raised themselves, almost unaided,from
a state of absolute barbarism in the short
space of eighty years,, to take rank among
tbe Christian and civilized nations of the
earth. Therefore, instead of holding the
good little Queen of Hawaii up as a mark of
ridicule, let us honor and respect her, should
she come among us, 03 a good, virtuous,
highly-educated, and exemplary lady.
A Slcw*Cl»apter in Ainei-icaii History.
[From the London Timc3.]
The birthday of American Independence was
duly celebrated yesterday, and never since
tbe 4th of July, 1776, has that famous anni
versary been ushered iu by events so grati
fying to national pride. During the last four
years, the most sanguine of American pa
tiiots must have welcomed its recurrence
with mingled feeliugs. However, robust his
faith in (lie destiny of bis eountry, he could
not shut his eyes to the evidences of actual
disruption and possible dissolution. The
foundations laid by Washington, Franklin
and Jefferson had been displaced, and no
one could predict, with confidence, that they
could ever be restored to their original ‘posi
tion. No wise man would, even now, com
mit hinigelf to such a prediction; but experi
ence has abundantly proved tbe extraordi
nary strength of the fabric.
So far, those w’ho believed in tjie native
vitality of the great Federal Republic have
a right to exult, but we venture to think that
one or two speakers at Willis’ Rooms last
uight, somewhat misstated the nature ot their
victory. It is not Democracy that has van
quished Aristocracy, but Federalism that has
triumphed over State sovereignty, and es
tablished the subordination of all other con
stitutional rigbls to those of the central
power. The result must be the reconstruc
tion of the American Union, and it is diffl
cult to believe that any future secession can
be more formidable than that organized by
Jefferson Davis. The Federal tie will pro
bably be strengthened, and the American
people may gradually become one and indi
visible, but it remains to be shown whether
that unity can be reconciled in practice with
the principles laid down in the Declaration
The subjugation of the South, however, is
as much feat accompli, as the Declaration of
Independence itseli; and anew chapter has
thereby been opened iu the history ot the
United States. Henceforward other battles,
siege and capitulations, will take the place of
Bunker Hill, Saratoga and Yorktown. Corn
wallis and Burgoyne will be dwarfed by
Jackson and Lee, and it will not surprise us
if Lincoln occupies a pedeslal of equal height
with that of Washington. If, indeed, the im
portance of occurrences be determined by
their scale, the War ot Independence hardly
admits of comparison with that which has
just terminated. The forces collected on
either side, the distance traversed, the lists
of killed and wounded, and the ruin wrought
of the former, are 03 nothing by the side of
the records of the late civil war. The titles
of outrage and havoc inflicted by the British
troops, which have horrified three genera
tions of Americans, are already being super
seded by more recent and vivid memories,
and the heroic age of America will soon be
transferred from the eighteenth to the nine
For years to come novelists will lay their
plots iu this revolutionary period, and ora
tors will draw their most excitftig material
from the same source. Nor can it be denied
that the issues at stake were in proportion to
the magnitude aud desperation of the con
test. Whether or not there should be a
balance of power on the North American
continent, and whether slavery should be ac
cepted by modern civilization, were ques
tions mevitably involved in it, though thrust
out of sight, by more obtrusive motives.—
Upon these questions, and upon the further
question whether the sudden abolition of
slavery wa9 to be desired for the sake of the
negroes themselves, opinions may still differ,
but that the settlement of them will be the
effect, if it was not tbe object, of the war,
admit of no refiSlmable doubt. If the French
Revolution, with all its manifold influences
on society, was the indirect consequence of
American independence, no one can say
what changes may hereafter be traced back
to the crisis now in course of development.
The Defeat of tiie London Times in the
British Elections.— There is more signifi
cance iu the defeat of Mr. Walter, the prin
cipal proprietor of the London Times, in tbe
English election contest, titan at first sight
appears. Until recently, this gentleman has
not identified himself at all publicly with the
valuable newspaper property he owns. But
some two or three years ago he tosk to tile
business of having his dull parliamentary
performances reported at great length in his
own journal. And the unfair character of
some of these reports—or what was alleged
to be their unfair character—led to a person
al discussion iu the House ot Commons, re
lative to Mr. Walter's connection with Print
ing House Square. Little came, directly, of
that discussion. But since then the defeated
proprietor has affected a consequence aud
standing which his natural talents indiffer
ently sustain. His specialty has been public
education, and all the heavy things he could
say on that novel subject have been re-pro
duced in the best columns of the Loudon
Times. He has also made no secret of his
desire to become a Peer of the Realm, so
soon as his Parliamentary votes and the Min
isterial organship performed by his journal
should give him a feasible claim upon Lord
Palmerston. The electois of Berks have
spoiled, for the present, this laudable ambi
tion. Mr. Walter's connection with the
"leading journal,” instead of bringing hiih
credit with the yeomaury of England, has,
by his unfortunate avowal of it, brought him
political discomfiture. And to-day his peer
age must be a irMre distant prospect than it
was before he took to trading in bis newspa
per connection — N. Y. Times.
J[n passing along the line of the Georgia
Rgilroad, one cannot but be painfully struck
with the appearance of large numbers of
idlers congregated at every depot and wood
station. They are of every class, sex and
color; freeduiefl, however, forming larg
er part. The arrival of each train is the sig
nal for the assembling of these motley
groups, seemingly awaiting anxiously the
turning up of that “something’ which never
came to poor Micawber, hut iu the persistent
expectancy of which his whole life was ren
dered a l'atluic. Just so will it be with thou
sands of the iudoleuts in our country ; they
have not summoned the energy necessary to
shake off the lethargy, that a stagnated con
dition of the country and business has thrown
around them. Winter will soon come, aud
to the improvident it will be a pinching one.
There is something for every man to do, and
especially iu the present desolated condition
of our country would we enjoin it upon our
people to he up and doing. Thpre is work

to wield it. —Atlanta Intelligencer.
The iRRErRREssiHLE Conflict.—On yester

party of the frith Massachusetts Vols., (col

by tiie disorderly conduct of the former aud
their open violation of orders in carrying and

charge of ttieir duty, remonstrated and in
sisted upon the relinquishment of the sticks,
when open violence wae threatened, by the
colored soldiers, and only averted by the
prompt aud fearless action of one ot the
police, who fired upon the ringleader aud
dispersed the crowd.
Later in the evening complaint was lodged
at the Police Station by a young lad who had
been unprorokedly assaulted by a negro aud
had received a severe cut iiMhe bead, from
a brickbat thrown by the latter. Measures
were promptly taken for bis arrest.— Char.
