The South’s Rapid Strides.
Every true Southern man is pleas
ed to see the rapid strides made and
making in the South, in great indus
trial advancement. They consist
mainly in iron production and steel
manufactures. We may refer to
those at Birmingham, Sheffield, South
Pittsburg, Chattanooga, Ashland,
Ky., Calera and Wheeling, Ala., and
other places. Some of the companies
have millions of dollars invested, oth
ers from 100,000 to 600,000. One thing,
however is noticeable, that those with
the largest capital are owned and
run by Northern capitalists and all
come in for their share of the plunder
obtained frmn the high duties of the
tariff. We^began by saying every
true Southern man is pleased to see
this great advancement in our indus
trial interests, but he would be better
pleased if they existed under a reve
nue tariff. We desire to see the South
engaged in these great improvements.
It is laying a foundation for southern
independence of other sections, and,
under a revenue tariff, it would be a
source of progress in which all the
people would be benefited. We de
sire to see such establishments built
up, receiving a fair reward for the in
vestments made in them. As long as
the high tariff exists prices of iron,
steel and tlieir manufactures, will
continue high, but the benefit, if any,
to the great agricultural interest will
be small. With a revenue tariff the
manufacturers will be fairly rewarded
and the agriculturists would ob
tain cheaper material in the prosecu
tion of their business.
The man who says these high tariff
duties, which protect the manu
facturers, do not tax the farmers is a
blockhead if he is in earnest and be
lieves what he says. Under a reve
nue tariff the farmer is lightly taxed,
but if 50 per cent, for instance, is add
ed, lie has to pay that fifty per cent in
addition to the moderate revenue tax.
Why do the manufacturers insist up
on high duties? It is to get more for
their goods, and of course, all who
buy them contribute to paying that
additional sum or tax. That is what
has made New Englanders, with their
poor and barren soil, so rich, and the
Southerners, with comparatively a
rich soil, so poor. Our people are be
ginning to understand this matter.
Martin the representative of the Bir
mingham steel and iron interest, has
been defeated and an honest revenue
tariff man will succeed him. Willis in
Kentucky, who misrepresented his
constituents has been defeated, and
Caruth, a genuine revenue tariff man,
will succeed him. The Democrats,
everywhere, are looking closely into
the sentiments of those who solicit
votes, and most, if not all the high
tariff Democrats, will have to give
way for true democrats of the revenue
The ancients make no mention of
“the shaking of hands.” They fol
lowed the heartier practice of hug
ging, or embracing, which is still pre
ferred by many Transatlantic nations.
The practice must first have come in
vogue during the age of chivalry,
when the cumbrous mail of iron pre
vented men from embracing with com
fort. But as their figures were cloth
ed with steel as well as the rest of
their persons, the warmth of a wel
come probably was manifested by the
force and length of the shake. Hence,
we presume, the following distinctions
have arisen, which, like the barome
ter, indicate the higher or lower de
grees of feeling which animate the
First is the pump-handle shake,
which is the most ancient and bears
evident traces of its having origina
ted when strength was the surest
test of manhood. It is executed
by taking your friend’s hand, and
working it up and down, through an
arc of fifty degrees for about a minute,
and a half. To have its name, force
and character, this shake should be
performed with a steady motion. No
attempt should be made to give it
grace, and still less vivacity, as the
few instances in which the latter has
been attempted have uniformly re
sulted in dislocating the shoulder of
the person on whom the experiment
was made. On the contrary, persons
who are partial to the “pump-handle
shake” should be at great pains to
give an equal, tranquil movement to
the operation, which should, on no
account, be continued after perspira
tion on the part of your friend has
Secondly, the “pendulum shake”
may be mentioned next, as being
somewhat similar in character, but
moving as the name indicates, in a
horizontal instead of a perpendicular
direction. It is executed by sweeping
yonr hand horizontally towards your
friend’s and after the juncture is ef
fected, according to the pleasure of the
parties. The only caution in its use,
which need particularly to be given,
is not to insist on performing it in a
plane strictly parallel to the horizon,
when you meet with a person who has
been educated to the “pump-handle
shake.” It is well known that people
cling to forms in which they have
been educated, even when the sub
stance is sacrificed in adhering to
them. I bad two uncles, both estima
ble men, one of them who had been
brought up in the “pump-handle
shake” while the other had brought
home, from a foreign voyage, the
“pendulum.” They met, joined hands,
and attempted to put them in motion.
They were neither of them feeble
iden. One attempted to pump and
the other to paddle; their faces red
dened, and it was at last a pleasing
illustration of the doctrine of the
composition of forces, to see their
hands slanting diagonally, in which
line they ever after shook ; but it was
plain to see there was no cordiality in
it, and as is usually the case with
compromises, both the parties were
discontented and never liked each
The next in importance is the ‘tour-'
niquet’. It derives its name from the |
instrument made use of by surgeons
to stop the circulation of blood in a
limb about to be amputated. It is
performed by clasping the hand of
your friend as far as you can in your j
own, and then contracting the mus
cles of your thumb, fingers and palm,
till you have produced any degree of
compression you may think proper in
the hand of your friend. Particular
care ought to be taken, if your own
hand is as hard and as big as a frying
pan, and that of your friend’s as
small and soft as a young maiden’s,
not to make use of the tourniquet
shake to the degree that will force the
small bones of the wrist out of place.
It is also seldom safe to apply it to
gouty persons, who are very whimsi
cal in this respect. A hearty friend
of mine, who had pursued the study
of Geology and acquired an unusual
hardness and strength of hand and
wrist, by the use of the hammer, is a
melancholy illustration of this. On re
turning from a scientific expedition
he gave his gouty uncle the “tourni
quet shake” with such severity that
the old gentlemon’s fingers were near
ly reduced to powder, for which my
friend had the misfortune of being
disinherited as soon as his uncle’s
fingers got well enough to hold a pen.
The “cordial grapple” is a shake of
much interest. It is a hearty, boister
ous agitation of a friend’s hand, ac
companied with a moderate pressure,
and a cheerful exclamation of wel
come. It *is an excellent traveling
shake, and well adapted to make
friends. It is indiscriminately per
The “Peter grievous” touch is in
opposition to the “cordial grapple.”
It is a pensive, tranquil junction; a
cast-down look, and an inarticulate
inquiry after your friend’s health.
A WILD FANCY*.
If the sad old world should jump a cog
Some time, iu its dizzy spinning,
And go off the track with a sudden jog,
What an end vrould come to the sinning!
What a rest from strife and the burden of life
For the millions of people in it;
Why, away out of care, and worry and wear,
And all in a beautiful minute.
Wl th not a sigh or a happy good-bye
For loved ones left behind us,
We would go with a lunge and a mighty plunge
Where never a grave should find us.
What a wild, mad thrill our veins would fill,
As the great earth, like a feather,
Should float through the air to, God knows where,
And carry us all together.
No dark, damp tomb and no mourners’ gloom
No tolling bell in the steeple
But in one swift breath a painless death,
For a million billion people.
What greater bliss could we wish than this,
To sweep with a bird’s free motion
Through leagues of space to a resting place
In a vast and vapory ocean—
To pass away from this life for aye,
With never a dear tie sundered.
And a world on fire for a runeral pyre.
While the stars looked on and wondered.

Marvelous Escape from Instant
Birmingham, Ala., October 12.—
A marvelous escape from instant
death and horrible bodily mutilation,
was the fortune of a group of seven
teen men yesterday. They were a
foreman and sixteen workmen on the
aqueduct of the Elyton Land Compa
ny’s water works, a mile and a half
from the city. They had stopped for
dinner and were seated smoking, scat
tered around within eight feet of a
large box containing seventy-five
pounds of dynamite, a number of picks
and shovels and a heavy anvil. All
at once, without a flash of warning,
the dynamite exploded, utterly anni
hilating the box and its entire con
tents and several coats of workmen
which had been laid there. The won
der was that while not a particle of
anything about the box was left by
the explosion, not a soul of the seven
teen men was harmed in the least.

Five fires were reported by him in one

all. The people are greatly excited.
Leading business men testified to the
alleged facts. Threats against the

The events of the week in Washing
ton have not been of momentous oar
sensational character, but to those-
who follow the daily details of na
tional history they are significant an«i
not unimportant. The w ork of puri
fication, of redistribution, of change-
of improvement, daily goes on in the-
Departments under the new Admin
istration. The history of a single-day
would fill a volume, and would fur
nish interesting reading to political
philosophers and economists. But to
epitomize the history of a week in a
simple letter would be a remarkable
feat of selection and condensation.
The members of the Cabinet are at

when completed, will be the simples*
as well as the ablest argument for tlM-
continuation of a Democratic admin
istration ever issued. They will show
a great dropping off of useless expen
ses and worse than useless men. Th-e-v

taken in the direction of cleanliness
and honesty of government. It may

this is a state of things that causes nra
surprise in Washington, where :t 5s
known that the Republican party
has, for years, crowded the Govern
ment offices like omnibuses with, po
litical friends, favorites, and relative**.
It cannot be claimed, of course, that
at the end of twenty months of Demo
cratic rule everything is just as &
should be. It w r ill require twenty
years to complete the work of purifi
cation and reform so well begun; and!
then it is more than probable that tbe-
in arch of progress will be character

crats are not all-wise and all-power

The reports circulated by Republi
cans, that the clerks in the various

gaged in preparing campaign docu

said authoritatively to be not entirely
inaccurate. The annual reports dT

timates for the coming year, takes*
together, it is believed, w’ill consti
tute a series of magnificent campaign,
documents for the democratic party*.

Secretary Manning’s health is so
nearly restored that he has returned
to his*official duties. Soon after Ms.
Manning was appointed Secretary at
the Treasury, the late Vice-Presidexat
Hendricks observed that Mr. Man
ning was a most remarkable man, and
appeared to him to be as firm ami
solid as a gate post. This tribute- to
the physical and mental strength of
the new Cabinet officer was but tfae
reflection of public opinion. With a
constitution, w'ill-pow'er, and industry
seldom united, with a great organic
ing mind, Mr. Manning, not allowing
himself reasonable time for rest aai
diversion, attempted to master the-d&-
tails and machinery of the great de
partment of which he was the h<?ad.
No man knew better than he-the im
portance to the country and to his-
party that the reforms or changes ex
pected must be made, after an intelli
gent and careful examination, and de
liberate consideration of their practi
cal effect. In discharging these ar
duous duties, exposed as he was to
the poisonous influences of sewer gas,
his health became impaired. A few
months of rest, combined with th*
best medical treatment, have- don* -
much to restore it.
