We are informed that the inereaee of acakcs
has been eo greet in Georgia “atnet freedom" a*
aeriooaly to embarraae planters. One of them
told os the other day that he would not be able
to gathers luxuriant crop of field peas now ma
turing on a piece of low land on aoeoant of the
number of anakee there, which were e mortal
terror to the negroes ; and for the same reason
he was obl'ged to decline cultivating some of
the most fertile parte of his plantation. Tfc
explanation of this anperabnndant growth of
snakes may be found In the feet that vary fa'
hogs roam about tbe woods “linct freedom,” or
indeed, roam anywhere else. Whenever they
attempt to roam in thetr native wilds Sambo
ready with his knife, to out their throats aid
dress them for his private baking pot.
Now tbe bogs were death on snakes, and the
bitea and stingi of the latter harmless to the
seine. The pursuit and destruction of snakes,
indeed, was tbe only sport or diversion aver in
dulgvd In by oar plantation hogr, whioh in all
other respects took a very sertons aod solemn
view of life, end never otherwise indulged In
anything approaohlng to levity. But when
Simbo slew and baked the last plantation hrg
belonging to bi* employer, the snakes found
“freedom'* too, and tnoreased and multiplied
nntiltbey have corns to be an inconvenience
and a terror. And era they also said to be not
only very numerous but very bold and aggres
sire—make fight and seldom retreat from dis
ci very as they use to do. One negro on a plan,
tation, we see, lest week, was actually attacked
by a highland moccasin, which bit a piece ont
of his leg and came near killing him. We in
ollne to the opinion that Stmbo will have to
oome to terms end egree “wid da white man'
to atop bog killing ont of respect to bis owq
protection from tha snakes. Planters tell ns
tbe snakes are ten times as numerous as they
need to be In slave times.

Tire Virginia *< Conacrrallves ” and
Some chap at Washington City, who was
bard np for something with whioh to fill np hie
daily bndget to the St. Bouts Bepnblioan, tele
graphed the other dty that the Virginia “Oon
esrvatlves” were greatly disturbed by Mr.
Davie’ lata speech at the Montgomery White
Sulphur Springs, and even went so far as to
ohsrge that Mr. D. was in collusion with the
Radicals to defeat the “Conservatives” at the
coming election in Virginia. The Republican
very properly ridicules tbts bosh, and tells
ths Virginians that they greatly over-rate Mr-
We entirely agree with the Bepnblioan as to
Us estimate of this Maroh madness of tba Vir
ginia “Conservatives." Such drivel is unworthy
of a people who have 30,000 white majority,
and who have been claiming that they trill
snrely bury Radioalism in November. If they
osn’t and don't do what they say, they ahonld
not endeavor to saddle tbe blame upon Mr.
Davis. They had better. In esse of defeat, re
fer to the resolutions of their oonventlon for a
solution of the difficulty—especially to that one
sugar coating Grant That will folly account
tor their defeat if one is sustained. They bad
a splendid opportunity of patting themselves
flat-footed upon the reoord, bnt “policy,” “ex-
podlenoy” or some other such jugglery that has
keen so suooessfnl in turning over several South
ern States to the Radicalsuggested a contrary
oourse. Georgia set an example that Virginia
might well have followed. She made a square
fight and whipped it most glorlotuly. Wo hope
Virgins will dc as well 1 bnt when we beer such
ntteranoes as the above attributed to her people

Aa Important Decision.
Elsewhere will be found a decision of Chief
Justice Warner of theSupreme Court—in which
Judge Trippe concurred—to the effect “that
tbe law forbidding the vitality of judgments on
notes whose consideration was slaves, is uneon
stitntlonal, and that unless barred by the stat
ute of limitations, snnh judgments oan be mads
operative.” JnJge MeOay dissented.
There were two eases involving this point
before the coart. In one of whioh—the one we
print to-day—the motion to reinstate on lbs
docket was made within tbreo years from its
dismissal therefrom, nnder tbe provisions of
tijo Constitution of 18G3, which denies to the
oonrls any jurisdiction to enforce oontrsols, the
consideration of whioh was slaves. The lata
deolsion of the Federal Supreme Conrt holding
this provision of the State Oonatitntion to be
noil and void, has given validity to anoh debts,
snd this drolsion by onr State Supreme Conrt
will donbtless have a very important effect upon
the pecuniary stains of many persons In the
The “ Party of frogresa.”
The Bepnblioan party is oalled by
itself the party of progress. It has
been nesriy thirteen years in power,
and in that time, says tbe World, tbe
government in nearly all the States in whiob
that party has been in the ascendanoy has been
transformed from one In whieh the people rule
to ore in whioh corporations rule. Two of
the Vioe Prealdenta of the party have been de
bauched by these corporations, the chairmen
of the moat important oommittees of Congress
have been subsidized by the rings, and half a
dozen Senators claiming to ba Bepnblioan
Ohristi&n statesmen are tarred with the same
brush. The controlling power of the Republi

controlled by the e’Zi of Credit Mobilier divl-

Chicago, Augmt 29 —The Tribune has orop

embracing the greater part of the eorn growing
portion of the State, and from twenty counties
in different parts of Iowa. With the exception
of half of the counties in I linois, all put the
corn crop at only from one-half to two-thirds of
an average yield, though in some localities,
where the yield will* be short, there ia greater

Cotton Culture In India.
A correspondent in Calcutta writes to the
Fall Mall Gazette that Sir George Campbell is
endeavoring to improve tbe cotton crop of Ben
gal. Hitherto the Baugal cotton has been short
in fibre and low in price. The climate acd tho
soil hold ont a reasonable expectation of pro
ducing a more vilnab’e staple, and the Lieut
Governor has gone into the pnjtot with his
charaoteristio energy. European enterprise oan
produce a fibre in lower Baogal but little, if at
all, inferior to the S ja Island cotton. But Eu
ropean enterprise cannot make it pay. An Eag-
li/ih planter or agriculturist must obtain so large
return on his capital and supervision in In
dia that be cannot compete with the native
husbandmen in the actual roaring of any or
dinary crop. Thn% the indigo planter doe*
not himself grow the indigo which he macnfac-
turos Into dye. The tea-planter cultivates his
garden with a prefi: only b*oan;e he has to im
port labor from a distance for the purpose, and
his skill in organization thus comes into play.
Sir George Campbell has, therefore, endeavored
not au much to direct British capital to tbe ac
tual cultivation of cotton as by practioal experi
ments and a wider diffusion of knowledge on
the subject to enable the native husbandman to
enhance the value of bis crop. A series of offi
cial papers is published in tbe Bengal Gazette
on the subject Bengal has already the mon
opoly of the jate fibre, and if its peasantry oonld
only learn to mil.ze their advantages in soil and
climate, they might, within the next twenty
years, revolutionize the cotton trade of the
world. It is satisfactory to find that the offi
cial feeling against British enterprise in India

TVbale Canght b/ Telegraph Cable*
When the Atlantio cable was first laid one
danger was thought to menace it near shore—
the dragging anchors of ships; and qne in deep
sea, the probable znuning against it of large
fishes. The latter was treated by scientists a*
absorb. A remarkable incident that happened
this summer to tho Indian cable, three hundred
miles long, between Kanachee snd Gwadur,
proves that after all very strange things happen
the depth of the sea. The cable broke aod,
ships were tent to repair it. They grappled it,
but on winding in the cable unusual resistance
was experienced, as if it were foul of rocks, but
after persevering for some time the body of an
immense whale, entangled in the cable, was
brought to the surface, when it was found
be firmly 6ecated by two and a half
turns of the cable immediately above the
tail- Sharks and other fish had partly eaten
the body, which was rapidly decomposing, the
jaws faking away on retching the surface. The
tail, which measured folly twelve feet across,
was perfect, and covered with barnacles at the
extremities. The sea being too rough at tbe
time to make use of the boats, an attempt was
made to haul the whale on beard, but i:s own
weight broke it away from the injured cable as
soon as it was above the surface. Apparently,
the whale was at the time of entanglement
using the cable to free itself from parasites,
such aa barntdes, which annoy these animals
that sea very much, and the cable, hanging
in a loop over a submarine precipice, he proba
bly, wiih a fillip of bis tad, twisted it rextud
bins, and tuns came to au untimely end.

The Ccniiog Ilog Crop*
We take the following from the Drovers*
Journal, of Chicago. It possesses value as
Toe entire number of hrgi produced in the
West for the last packing se»tou did not fall far
short of C 000,000, if we add the large number
of Western hogs that were packed in Canada
and our Eastern c ties to the number that was
packed at tbe various packirg points in the West,
and we now expect to see the number for the
coming sea ion reach fuliy 6 000.000, and we ex
pect to see them made fat enough to weigh as
heavy as any equal number of begs have ever
weighed heretofore. We expect to &ee this re
sult because it will be the only course that farm
erscan take fer getting rid of a goed’y part of
their corn supply at something like living prices,
and wh le we dvr not expect to nee an over-sup
ply of pork, we do not believe it will bo pru-
dent or 6afe for those engaged in raising hogs
to expect any better prices than were real’zad
during the past packing season for hogs, say
365 to 425 pounds as th* extreme range of prioas
at Chicago. With all the world at peace, every
sound operator knowa that it would never do to
pack such a number of hogs as we now-a-days
have to deal with, at prices that would give any
material check to the freest possible consump
ticn of the product both at home and abroad.
Br the United S:ates census report ia*ely
published, the whole number of hog* in all the
States and territories is given at 25,131.569.
Of this large aggregate Illinois has the largest
number of any State, 20,703 363; Missouri
shows 2 306 530; North Carolina, 1.975 215
Indiana, 1,872 230; K^ntuckv, 1.837,227; Ten
r.es?ee, 1.828,690; Ohio, 1.728,998; Iowa, 1,
353 908. These are the eight heaviest hog rais
ing States ia the Union. Among the smaller
8tates Vermont has 46.345; Maryland, 49,178
Maine, 45 760; Oaoneciioat, 51 9S3. The en
tire number of hogs in either one of thsse four
Scutes is but little over tbe number that has
been recaived at the Uaioo Stock yards in a sin
pie day. Ia Kics-is aud Nebraska the sapplj
of hogs is increasing at an arnaz ngly rapid rate,
those two youog States beiDg eminently fitted
with soil and climate for the production of corn
and hog?. _
A Gunpowder Pile Driver.—Thf re was ex
bibited on Monday afternoon, at the whatf of
Mr. Wendell Bdlman, Canton, a pile driver, the
motive power of wbech was gunpowder. The
machine is the invention of Henry Vogler, of
Baltimore, and doe* its work in an effective and
quick manner. It consists of a large gun- cap,
wnioh fits on the he&i of the pile to be driven
into the mud, and on the osp is placed a percus
sion cartridge, invented by B. O. Niooll, of this
oity. The hammer is held in its plaoe over the
cap by means of a brake, and to start ths same
on its downward course a brake under the con
trol of a person at the foot of the machine re
leases it, causing it to descend with lightning
like velocity upon and exploding Lh6 cartridge,
which in turn forces tbe hammer back to its old
position, where it is h*!d by tho brake before
spoken of. At the test Monday a pile was driven
eleven feet through a hard bottom in the spaoe
of fonr minates. Mr. O. P. Manning, civil en
gineer, and several other scientific gentlemen
