Tkt CrNTAaL Oaoax an un Tin an Trait — The Chronicle, tbe Administration organ in '--hingtoo, expanded itself last Friday morn- Ugtn a three column article upon three Freaf* dmtial Terms for Grant. The Chronicle's art!- tie for a fonrth term for Grant wiH probably he exteaded to four columns, and so on. That paper Insists that President Grant ehcntd be pet before the people for re election.

Horn and lienktns. 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. THE GEORGI A l’lCESV. Tire Virginia *< Conacrrallves ” and Hr. Davis. 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- Davia' influence. 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 we don't feel qnlte so snre of it as we would like, 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 State. , 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 can administration and of the Federal govern ment his made such progress that Its notion is controlled by the e’Zi of Credit Mobilier divl- deeds and the spoils of oontraots, ending in back-salary grabs. Those who were tha deep- sat in all these are foremost in that party and the highest in the oonfidenee of the Republi can administration. This is-progress—in one direction. The I’cuneylvaanlrt Democracy Met at Wilkeebarre an Wednesday to nomi nate candidates for Judge of the Supreme Conrt acd State Treasurer. An attempt to make B. Milton Speer, an ex Congressman who voted fjr and took the back pay, Presi dent was resisted, and Congressman Getz, who defended Spoor, was hissed off tbe floor amid load applause. Ths platform of the Ohio Democrats was adopted, and Messrs. Ludlow, of Philadelphia, and Hutchinson, of Pittsburg, were nominated for Jadge end Treasurer. t rope In Mississippi. The Natchez Democrat says the news from the cotton fislds in that region ta growing rap idly more disoonragiug, especially from the neighborhood of Vidalia and Bake Concordia, where tbe worms have already stripped several plaoes, end are reported in immense armies working vigorously- Some of the fislds just across the river, in fall view of onr blcffj, have, ace Saturday, been entirely stripped of ver. dure. A correspondent of the Newton ledger, writ ing from the northern pert of that county, lays of the crops: “Corn ia good, especially the bottoms end reed-brakee. Some say that they have made more 00ru this season than they have in two preceding ooe*. Cotton ia tha first thing yon see on the plantation. I never raw such a quantity of it before. I ihtok at least two- tbirda of tbe cultivated lands are in cotton. It looks splendid. An average crop will be made no disaster befalls it." Tbe Yiekobarg Times rays that news of de- «traction, actual and contemplated, by the cot ton worm, ia now coming in discouragiogly thick and feat from all directions. A farmer writing to the Memphis Appeal from West Mississippi on the 30th instant, says the boll worm end caterpillars bave rained the cot ton drop of that section of the State in the last six os eight days. They will not mike e bale to etx seres, and that ia the finest oo<ton- grow ing section in the Stale. All they Lave to de pend on now la e few herd bolls, end the farmer will be reined.

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 disappearing in the presence of the actual resolts. 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. A Startling E-<npa *aox the Grays — Baltimore, August 27.—A dispatch from West chester, Md , says; Wm.

The Ccniiog Ilog Crop* We take the following from the Drovers* Journal, of Chicago. It possesses value as statistical statement: 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 witnessed the working of this nsw fashioned pile driver, and expressed themselves highly satisfied with its effectiveness and saving of labor.—Baltimore Sun.
