His father and uncle Wash was standing

The Comptroller General is getting
anxious aboutthe State taxes. His anxiety
does not arise from the mere question of the
taxes, but from the fact that they are not
coming into the Treasury. The payment of
the interest on the public debt during the
summer, the payment of the heavy appro
priations, the warrants for the civil
establishment and the expense at
taching to a protracted session of the
Legislature have been heavy drains
on the public purse, and the Treasury
is in neea of money. It has been some two
months since the" taxes were due. and tax
collectors have been urged to press collec
tions and make remittances, and yet money
is coming in very slowly. The Comptroller
General has not heard from more than a
half dozen counties in the State. It is ex
pected, however, that the receipts will begin
to swell in a few days, and there will be Jnv
in the offices of the Comptroller and the
As soon as Dr. G. W. Gardner, of Atlan
ta, charged with fornication, was incar
cerated in the Fulton county jail, his health
began to decline, and it hag been getting
worse ever since. Dr. Stiles and Dr. West
moreland have examined him frequently,
and they concur in the opinion that his con
dition is precarious, aud that if held in con
finement his death will inevitably occur
soon. This fact was brought to the atten
tion of Gardner’s friends in the Independent
Order of Odd Fellows, and they resolved to
come to his aid aud seek to obtain a reduc
tion in the amount of his bond.
They waited upon Judge Van Epps
end he consented to reduce the
bond from 93,000 to #m Monday Son.
Gnitreil appeared in the City Court and
made a motion for reduction in bail in Dr.
Gardner's caw*, and a reduction of the Jins

CARDINAL MANNING'S ViEWS.
His Opinion of Gladstone Home Rule
and an Irish Parliament.
Mr. Frank Richardson sends to the Balti
more Sun an interesting report of an inter
view with Cardinal Manning in London,
from which the following is taken: "The
Cardinal evinced accurate knowledge of
American affairs. He admire* our form of
government, but thinks its administration
could be improved it" we bad fewer elections
and longer terms of offi'-e. He takes much
interest in the proposition for the assem
bling of a Catholic congress of Engiish
*l eak.ug people, and said he had just re
ceived a letter from Bishop Ireland in
regard to that matter. I asked the cardi
nal about the progress of Catholicism in
England. He said it was If osfc grati
fying: that it was not so much in compara
tive point of numbers a* in the material
progress and influence. The church now
stood ou a happy basis in England, and was
given as much consideration by government
and people as any other denomination. The
Church of England did not exercise or at
tempt to axereise any direct i nfiuence ou
legislation or politics, but of course its pat
ronage controlled votes. He showed me
from his window a splendid site, covering
four acres, which he securest some time
since for the erection of a grand cathedral
in London. He said he should not, at liis
advam ed time of life, attempt to begin the
work of building this cathedral; that he
must leave for his successor. In speaking
of English politics, he said it was probable
that no people were better satisfied with
the structure of their government aud
its institutions than those of Great Britain.
In no government in the world
was there *uch a degree of absolute personal
liberty as in Great Britain. One never
knew there was any law until he ran
against it. Scotland and England were
completely fused in identity of interest. It
was different with Ireland l>eeause of the
different treatment. That unhappy island
had been ruled by England for more than
three centuries by force alone. It was under
Henry VIII. that the policy was inaugur
ated which had made and kept Ireland "dis
affected. Had it not been for this Ireland
would have been as devoted and as loyal to
the English crown as Scotland. He was an
Englishman to the backbone, but he knew
and loved Irish people. A more true, a
more loyal and a more noble race never
existed. They could be ruled with an up
lifted thumb when kindly and justly dealt
with, but they never would bow to force
aud wrong. He had often been asked about
bovcotters and moonshiners, and so on. He
believed that injustice always developed the
worst passions of men, and boycotters and
moonshiners were the product of injustice.
Proper and just land laws fie considered to
be the essential element for the tranquiliz
ing of Ireland, and one feature must be the
requirement of absentee landlords to return
or ]>art with their estates. There were sev
eral big corporations in London which owned
vast tracts of laud in Ireland. This was
manifestly wrong, aud one of the first things
to be remedied was that these lands should
go into the possession of those whose labor
gave them all the value they possess. The
cardinal said he had never been
much enamored with the name of “Irish
Parliament." In his view the legislative
body to be created for Ireland should
not be one with the prerogatives of a Parlia
ment a* commonly understood, but a cham
ber which should have the control of legisla
tion affecting local matters only. I said to
him I had found no sentiment worth speak
ing of in London in favor of Irish home
rule, and inquired what he thought about
the prosjiects. He replied tliat i xindou was
intensely aristocratic, intensely wedded to
custom, and therefore opposed to change.
But it was not so in the province*. The
feeling in favor of home rule was growing
rapidly every day in the country, and he
had the strongest belief it would eventually
tie strong enough to control both Houses of
Parliament, and force justice to be done the
Irish. He could not venture to predict’"when
this day would come, but he hoped to see it.
