TbeLaatSaTi of the Confederacy???The Home That Sheltered President Savls at the Time of Lee'e Surrender-Colonel Sontherlln's Hospi tality???In tereatinc Beminlseences. Special correspondence Constitution. 1)AXVIIX*, Va. t Octolier 27th, 1881.???It is pleasant to pc able to turn from the busy bus- . tie of politics to the contemplation of things more nearly affecting the material anil social life of the Old Dominion. There is little in politics worth writing about. I did intend to give you a pen pic ture of the sextette that is leading the rebell ion bore against the democratic party, not only of Virginia, but of the nation. Mahonc, Wise, Uiddlcberger, Cnmoron, Owner and Massey, are the men who desert ed the democratic party localise they could not govern it, and have seized the debt ques tion as the wedge to split the party and give them control of the oftices. They have ar rayed the poor man against the rich, and given force to a conflict of caste, under the guise of securing the freedom of the ballot and the purity of elections. What the outcome may he, ami what it means for the future of Virginia, no man can now tell. The history of the world teaches that an issue of caste may he a dangerous one; and it may yet prove so in Virginia. I will give you a pen picture of the six rebels, when 1 can get one or two points with which to complete the sketch. There arc really many things in the social and industrial life of Virvinia that are inter esting. The old state is also so full of history that you do not mount a hillock or travel a vale that does not recall some tradition worthy of reproduction. The place from which I write is the busiest town in the south, except Atlanta. There arc more neat and handsome residences here than I ever saw in any place of equal size in all the southland. It reminds you of a miniature Atlanta, or a thriving western town. The houses are mostly new, and arc surrounded by beautiful yards pro fusely decorated with 'flowers, shrubbery and shade trees. The principal thoroughfare run ning through tiie town quite forcibly recalls l???eachtrce street, although it is by no means a match for it. The people, too, are full of dash and business vigor, fully comprehending that the world has not stood' still for two decades. As in Atlanta, the people here are bold in business and affable in social intercourse. Every man stands upon his own bottom and wins or loses in the busy struggle by his en ergy, merit and luck. There seem to he no poor people here. Every one seems at work and thrifty. There appears to he no room for idlers, and the ten thousand people who make up the inhabitants of Danville are all out of the poor- house, and on the road to prosperity. Danville is the capital of the tobacco-grow ing region of southwestern Virginia and west ern North Carolina, a thriving section of beautiful rolling lauds, which yield millions of dollars??? wortli of the finest tobacco for chewing and smoking purposes gathered any where. It is the greatest market for leaf to bacco in the country. Thirty-four million pounds was sold in this place last year at an average of thirteen dol lars and eighty cents per hundred pounds. This brought ??4,092,000 to the farmers of the Piedmont region. The forty odd great tobac- - co manufacturers here worked tivo million pounds of the loaf into the best grades of twist, plug and smoking tobacco known in the world. This gave employment to five thousand people, who demanded nhd received a lialf a million dollars for their labor. The government exacted a tax of a million dollars upon the leaf tobacco manufactured in this section of Virginia. Yet nearly thirty mil lion pounds of the leaf grown here was scat tered over the world to he manufactured. These statistics tell why Danville is a thriv ing town. 1 Young men do /its work and con trol its destinies. The very nature of the to bacco business demands young blood and brains. The whole of the tobacco product of this section is brought to Danville, and there arc nine great warehouses when it is sold at auction under rules proscribed by a board of trade. In these warehouses each fanner???s to bacco is placed in piles, eacli grade by itself. Two warehouses are permitted to self at the same time, and the board of trade designates the order in whicli the houses shall eacli day sell. It is a curious sight indeed to visit one of these tobacco sales. The scene remindsonc of flic clamor and friendly encounter which one can witness any day in the stock exchange in New York, or the grain exchange in Chicago. Here, as there, hundreds of young men are gathered, full of adventurous spirit, each striving toget farthest into the fever of specu lation, and ahead in the hunt for rapid wealth. The rules of the'bonrd require the auctioneer to sell ninety piles of tobacco an hour, and it therefore takes nerve, judgment and quick decision for a buyer to keep pace with the auctioneer, and to got liis share of the golden product at a living price. There are no old men to lie seen on the ex change. It is purely a conilict of young blood and brains. Competition is so great that combination against the producer is impossible, for foreign buyers are iVnstantlv contesting with home manufacturers for the control of the product. This protects the grower and gives him a better price for liis tobacco than lie could ob tain at private sale. There are. therefore, no private sales. Eacli farmer prefers to run liis chances in the hazard of the auction. Tiie tobacco crop in this region is short this year. Tiie best authority here dors not think it will exceed twenty million pohnds, which would Ik* more than one-third less than it was last year. The tobacco, too, is of poor qiuflity, so the manufacturers say, and taking it all in aW, the excessively dry- summer ap pears to have injured tiie tobacco crop much more than it did tiie cotton. There are many other interesting points alaiut. tin* material resources of Danville and tiie Piedmont region, of which it is the capi tal. that press for notice, hut I deal with the tobacco product because it is the great in dustry of the place. It is grow ing in importance every year. Unlike tiie tobacco grown * in other sections of our country tho color to a great extent regulates tiie price. The lighter the color the more valuable it is. and as tiie uin lands impart a brighter color to tiie leaf they are mostly used for its growth. It is proba bly tiie only instance in husbandry where tiia poverty of land increases tiie value of the product. Danville, besides being a busy, thriving town, and tiie center of the greatest tobacco region in the country, has a history full of in-, torest and importance. It was the last permanent seat of the con federate government. It was the place chosen by Jeff Davis wherein to make a stand alter Richmond fell and Grant was pushing Lee toward Appomattox. It was here that tiie last meeting of tiie confederate cabi net took place, although all of them, except j Benjamin, met Davis in Washington, Georgia, i afterward. I dined in the same room, and at the same table where they ate their last meal together, and discussed the questions ' naturally uppermost in tlieir minds, upon tiie j eve of the final dissolution of the, confederacy. Tiie place where this memorable meeting took place, is at the head of tiie principal street leading down to the business part of the town. It is one of l he oldest homes and most magnificent places in all Danville. The old, time-stained mansion sits well back from the street, in the midst of a grove Rut a short distance from this house was tiie Danville hank, of which Major Sutherlin was the president. In this bnilding was de posited, during Mr. Davis???s stay here, all the gold and silver tiiat belonged to the confed eracy. Humphrey Marshall came here and tried to iaducc Mr. Davis to divide the treas ure with him, and authorize him to raise re cruits for guerilla service. Mr. Davis refused, saying: "The money is not mine to dispose of. It is the treasure of the confederate government, and the legislative power must direct its dis bursement.?????? t><.nerai Marshall was very angrV at Mr. Davis???s refusal, hut he did not show it in his presence. He was very bitter in liis criticism ???it Mr. I)uvis afterwards. ???It was at this very table." said Major iuthcrlin to me, as we sat at the spacious mahogany, filled witli good tilings to eat and drink, ???that Mr. Davis took his last meal with ???is full cabinet. It was anything but a pleas- int occasion. They discussed the situation with much warmth, and the prospects of suc- ???ess were talked over with great freedom. Finally the question came as to what should i??c done in case of actual dissolution. It was >bought probable that Davis and the whole ??????abinet would he obligedd to Hy the country, ind almost immediately the' question was tsked: ???How can we get away?" "Each man then gave a statement of his financial condition; that is, how much gold >r silver he had on hand in case it was found accessary to leave the country. The count icgun with Breckinridge. He had something ike two hundred dollars, and every man iround tiie table had from fifty to five hun- ircil dollars. Mr. Davis never said a word while tiie count was going on, but when it line liis turn to speak, said: "I haven???t a cent of money that will pass outside of the Confederate States. I haven't ???i dollar of gold or silver. I think I have the confederate money I drew for my last month???s salary. That is all.??? , Other subjects came up and the talk about money was dropped. The next day the news came that General Lee had surrendered, and Mr. Davis began to make a hurried preparation to go south. I shall never forget the day he started. There had been quite an amount of commis sary stores gathered here, and as they could not he removed they were abandoned, and the citizens, negroes, camp-followers, and the weary and foot-sore soldiers of Lee???s army who liad reached here on their way south, fell upon the dying confederacy and carried off whatever was portable. None who wit nessed the sight will ever forget it, and there is many a confederate soldier still living who remembers the ludicrousand sometimes angry scenes of the (Sunday when Danville was evacuated. i drove Mr. Davis to the station when he took the train for the south, and an amusing incident occurred, whicli I frequently recall. It was almost dusk, and as we drove out of the grounils and got fairly into the street, .... ..lie came ruling up neb inti the carriage nd shouted to my driver at the top of his nice, ???Hello! Hello!??? I paid no attention, nd drove on, but the rider was so persistent !iat I told the driver to stop. As I did so, ti officer whom I did not recognize rode up '<??? the carriage and asked if Mr. Davis was inside. Mr. Davis recognized him and said, ???Good veiling, General St. Johns.??? ???Good evening, Mr. President,??? replied the hief commissary of the confederacy. ???I hur- icd on here,??? continued General St. Johns, as soon as I could. Mr. President, to assure ou sir. that General Lee???s capitulation wasin nowise due to a lack of commissary stores. Mr. Davis smiled and said: ???I am very glad to hear it, General St. Johns.??? We drove on and the officer left, apparent ly satisfied. I couldn???t, help thinking what sarcasm there was in his assurance to Mr. Davis that an army that had been lialfstarved for a year had finally surrendered with full stomachs and plenty in their haversacks. There was a very touching incident attend- ng Mr. Davis???s departure from Danville. I si not been very well the winter before the surrender, and had gathered together what gold aijd silver I could to be prepared for an emergency. I had a thousand dollars and gave it to my wife. She heard the conversa tion at tile dinner table and heard Mr. Davis say that lie had not a dollar that would pass current outside of the confederacy. She sewed up a plain cotton bag and put the thousand dollars I had given her into it. ???Give that to Mr. Davis,??? said she, as I was entering the carriage to go with him to the depot. Just before the train was ready to start, as I took his hand to bid him good-bye, I pressed the bag containing the gold into it saying: ???My wife handed me this for you. She hopes you will accept it as a token of her esteem.?????? When he felt wliat wnsTn the bag, his eyes filled with tears, and he handed it back to me quickly, and emphatically declined to receive it, exclaiming: ???Is it possible that onr cause can fail with such evidences of devotion as this on the part of onr noble women!?????? A moment later the train moved off, and Jeff Davis left Danville without a dollar, save the few confederate notes lie had received for one months services, as president of the con federacy. F. A. B. FOREIGN FLASHES. It is reported that Mr. Sexton is dying. The French column from Zcber-sa has arrived at JCnirwnn. The Greeks expelled the Turkish post-office em ployes at Larissa. Coujrr Vox Moi.tke was defeated in the late elec tion in Prussia by a clerical. .VRCHBisiior McCabe has issued a pastoral de nouncing the Dublin riot. The land league-s are still hesitating whether or not to transfer their headquarters to Paris. Elmo as have been discovered in some of the re turns of the elections in France, which may possi bly cause their invalidation. A rasr.vrcn from Berne says that the elections for members of the national council show but little b'lngein the position of the parties. ) Owing to the interest in the trial of Lefroy, fo the murder of Mr. Gold in a railway earriago,r , pedal trains will be run to Maidstone. ??? its German steamer slopped at Constantinople i.i the supposition that she had dynamite on board, intended tor Russia, bus been allowed to proceed. Grew asked C.nrobetta to take office and the latter. consented. It was agreed that Gatnbetta might assume the presidency of the council, with or without portfolio. The funeral service in memory of General Gar- 111 ^???thn. dh Sunday, was largely attended. Professor Griest delivered an oration before a colos sal bust of the late president. A Berlin correspondent of the London Times says me arm adherents of Prince Bismarck in the uew rciehstag will probably not number more than one-third o: the whole house. Count Von A KMX. son of the late Count Ilarrv \ on Amim, who was severely treated by Bismarclc, has conquered for the progressists a district in B nndeuburg formerly held by the conservatives. Among the persons arrested to-dav were the secreta ries of castle Dermot and the Athy branches of the land league, {.resident of the Newmarket brauch, and Mr. lleffermun, league organizer of Kildare. A Dublin dispatch says several more arrests are announced to-day in various parts of Irelaud. 11 is stated that a secret meeting of a branch of the land league was held in Dublin on Saturday, when 200 new members were enrolled. The Fall Mall Gazette, commenting on Secretary Blaine???s circular, says: "The United States, in re fusing to settle the status of the canal by interna tional agreement, is setting a precedent a great deal worse than inconvenient." Parnell has been forbidden to see the solicitor for the purpose of instructing him to take steps to test the validity of his arrest, uulcss the warden be present. The proles- against this order has been lodged with the governor of the prison. The Berlin Post says Prince Bismarck in replving to a telegram from the anti-Semitic club of the Ger man students at Lcipslc university rvgTetiug the result of the Berlin elections, says that he is neither surprised nor discouraged by tno elections. Chronic diseases, he says, require time and patience for cure.
