Ftory of liis experience in the Geor

"I shall never forget the amount of
money it cost u to keep an old wo
man from crying herself to death.
Of course we were obliged to subsist
if the country as we went along and
we naturally took the best in sight.
One day we took possession of a
chicken ranch kept by an old lady,
who stood at the front sate with a
broom and threatened to lick all of
Sherman's forces if they did not
move on. Now, chickens were cor
hidered as officers' meat, and, as we

ing on this hint, I proceeded to busi

hunted up the train at once. The
money was worth about two c?nts on
the dollar. Well, I stuffed aboil'
half a million dollars in an old carpet
sack and marched into the house.
" 'Madam,' said I, opening the
sack, 'I'll give you 50,000 to quit

OPRECEDEXTED IJIMICRATIOS OF 1881.
The unprecedentedly heavy stream
of immigration that has been pouting
into the country this year over 430,
000 arrivals in eleven months seems
to alarm timid citizens with serious
apprehensions as to whether this
mass pf humanity, consisting of peo
ple wholly unacquainted with Amer
ican life, can be safely absorbed by
our body politic. It is true, the
number of new-comers seems very
large, almost sufficient to form three
new States out of territory so far un
inhabited, were the immigrants all
to setrle down together. But the
effect produced by the sudden acces
sion of a foreign element to our
people depends in a great measure
upon the proportion it bears to the
general population and its distribu
tion among the different part3 of the
country. From this point of vie
it appears that the heavy immigra
lion of this year will not put our in
stitutions under as severe a strain as
they have been put before. We
have now.a population of over fifty
millions and the number of immi
e ranis for the w hole year will be
about 440,000. In 1854 the popu
lation of i he United States was about
25.000.000. and the number of imtni
grants in that year was 319,223,
number more than two-thirds
large as that of the present year
while the aggregate population o
the country was only one-half
what it now is. V e mnjrht reason
ably conclude that the strain upo
our institutions from so enormous a
influx of foreign elements should
have been much arreater then than
the one now to be apprehended, and
yet we cannot remember that th
years following 1854 were remark
able for any peculiar development
that might have been traced to th
difficulty of absorbing so large a new
ingredient in our body politic. I

fact, there have been several year
n which the proportion of imm
rranls to our whole population has
been heavier than in this
It is also reported that the immi
grants who arrived this year genei
ally were, of an uncommon'y good
class, people of working habits and
generally of some means. Moretha
one-third of them were Germans
mostly belonging to the agrieultu
ral classes, who proverbially mak
good citizens and are easily assimi
lated. Immigrants from Great
Britain, mostly Irishmen, come next
forming something less than one
third of the aggregate, a valuable
addition lo our working forces.
Norway. Sweden and Denmark
furnish the next largest contingent
about one-eighth of the whole, and
the rest is divided among other na
On the whole, we need indulge in
no dark apprehensions as to the in
fluence of immigration upon our po
litical ami social lite unless laige
masses of the less desirable elements
of it should congregate in cert ail
laige cities. In this respect, the
statement that 143,132 of the new
comers have remained in New York
would seem to indicate that such r
concentration has taken place. But
Mr. Jackson, the Superintendent
of Castle Garden, assures us that this
statement is apt to create a wrong
impression, "owing to the fact that
many immigrants who had not fixed
upon any destination were credited
to New York, but remained only
ong enougri to decide upon a per
manent home; that some immigrants
refused to give their destination and
were put down to New York's ac
count, as that was their address when
last heard from," and that "not
more than 35,000 or 40,000 will find
permanent homes in this State besides
the 15,000 or 20,000 who will settle
down in this city." New York
would therefore only have her pro
portionate share and no more. The
bulk of the immigration is going to
the West, where it will soon become
identified with new and growing
communities, whose interests the new
comers will soon understand and
whose progress anil prosperity they
will share. It is a fact worthy of
note that the north-western States,
which receive among their people
the laigest proportionate number of
foreign immigrants, take rank among
the orderliesl of American communi
ties. Judging from the experiences
of the pasf, it may therefore be con
fidently said that, leaving aside two
or three large cities, the difficult' of
absorbing and assimilating our
foreign immigration is not one of the
future dangers that should d-eturb
our equanimity. N. Y. Post.

It is evident that the monopolists
have determined not only lo contro
the Government, but the thought of
the people as well. Senator Windom
in a letter to the League says:
'The channels of thought and the
channels of commerce thus owned
and controlled by one man, or by a
few men, what is to restrain corpo
rate power, or to hx a limit to its
exactions upon the people ? What
is then- to hinder these men from de
pressing or infialing the value of all
kinds of property to suit their caprice
avarice, and thereby gathering into
i heir own coffers the wealth of the
nation? Where U llje limit to such
a power as this? What shall be
said of the fpirit of a free people
who will submit without a protest
to be thus bound hand and foot ?"
Tue following extract from a
letter written by Hon. David Davis,
once a judge of the Supreme Court,
now a Senator of the United States,
indicates the serious nature of the
problem before us:
"The rapid growth of corporate
power and the malign influence which
it exerts by combination of the Na
tional and State Legislatures, is a
well grounded cause of alarm. A
struggle is pending in the near future
between this overgrown power, with
its vast, ramifications all over the
LTnion, and a hard grip on much of
the political machinery, on-the one
hand, and the people in an unorgan
ized condition on the other, for con
trol of the Government. It will be
watched by every patriot with in
There are two things which can not
be done too quickly:
1st. Let the people supporl the
papers which advocate their interest,
and leave those se erely alone wlii. h

2nd. Establish a postal telegrapl
which will serve the press and al
other enstomers fairly and cheaply

THE JIFA WIIO SUCCEED.
The great difference among men of
nil callings is energy of character or th
want of it. Given the same amount of
learning and integrity, and the same
opportunities, and energy will make
one man a conqueror. The want of it
will see the other a failure. Dead
beats are all'aien without force. They
had as good a chance as any of their
companions. Others went ahead and
carried off the prizes, while they were
lying by the wayside dispirited and
despondent. It takes nerve, vim, per
severance and patient continuance in
well doing, to win a great prize. And
the young man who goes into a profes
sion without this pluck and force will
not earn salt to his porridge. He will
drag along through life with the help of
friends' getting some credit with them
for being a well meaning man, in deli
cate health and unlucky. The real
trouble is, he lacks energy. All the
ning in the world will not
qualify a man for usefullness. It re
quires pusn, stamina, vigor, will,
courage resolution, determination in
one word energy. N. Y. Observer.
A careful examination of the
