ENGLAND ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO.
Prom .in address delivered not
long since by Mr. Thomas Ashbury,
C. E., before the Manchester Associa
tion, we extract the following as to
what was the state of affairs in Eng
land a hundred years since:
uWe need not further consider the
engineering works of the past ages,
but come at once tp the period of say
about a century ago, or at all events
the period when George III. began
to reign (17G0J, and glance at the state
of our own country at that time, the
belter to understand and appreciate
the advantages and blessings of the
" One hundred years ago England
could hardly be called a manufactur
ing country, as we imported almost
everything except corn, wool, and
flax: iron from Spain, Germany, Swe
den; pottery from Holland; hats from
Flanders; silk from France: cloth and
carpets from Belgium. One hundred
years ago we had, as a country, fall
en very low. Our cotton, woolen,
flax, machine, etc., manufactures
were struggling into birth; we could
not keep the water out of our coal
pits; we could not build steam en
gines; we could not build a church
fit to be seen; we had no harbors or
docks; we had no ships fit to go to
sea; we had no literature worthy of
our nation; we had our roads swarm
ing with highwaymen. We had our
army and navy composed of prison
ers or pressed men captured epenly:
we had gibbets at nearly every cross
road in the country; we had bribery
and corruption of the grossest kind
at Parliament elections; we had
'drunkenness, profligacy, brutality,
not only among the ignorant, totally
neglected, common people, but also
among the so-called upper classes;
we had public abominations and ob
scenities not surpassed in the days
of Nero; we had bull-baiting, cock
fighting, men fighting, dog fight
ing, badger drawing, and other
coarse, ferocious, savage sports;
we had the pillory, and men and
women placed there for disgusting
crimes, and crowds as foul as the
criminals would pelt them with
stones and rotten eggs, and horrid
scenes were of common occurrence;
we had women publicly whipped as
well as men, and all feelings of re
finement and delicacy were smother
ed in the licentious tendencies of the
people; we had women and girls
working down our coal pits; we had
blasphemy, brutality, skepticism, ir
religon, theism, prevailing among all
clacses and causing the ships,
the barracks, the ivories, the
clubs, and even very many of the
English homes to be turned into
places of reveling and vice, disgrac
ing the English name, and only
worthy of the demon of darkness;
we had, however, afew manly, plucky,
brave men, who amid the darkness,
drunkenness and vice, endeavored to
educate, lift up and arouse the people
to a purer and more noble life; but
these men fought against tremendons
odds, for some of them were carried
off by press gangs as sailors or sol
diers, some were publicly whipped
out of the town, and even Jin Salford
the very first use made of tho new
town fire engine was to drench that
nbble, godly man, John Wesley, when
lie boldly and courageously 'bearded ,
the lion in his den,' and publicly re
proved and exposed the prevailing
vices and iniquities of our sister
. "James Walt, while learning his
trade in London, had to keep his
house, and durst not walk abroad for
fear of being seized and sent for la
bor as a sailor on our then floating
hells,' or on our plantations in India
or America. One hundred years ago
there was in Scotland a veritable
'slavery' class of colliers and sailers,
and it was only in 1799 that this was
finally abolished. One hundred
years ago the main roads in this
country had ruts four feet deep in
many places; in fact, one writer says
the ruts were navigable; another says
they were like the roofs of houses
put together, and they had only
just superseded the pack-horse
and bridle paths. One hundred
years ago hanging was common for
all offenses; human life was little
thought of. One hundred years ago
or thereabouts, the first eight bags of
cotton arrived in Liverpool, and the
custom house officer seized them as
not being a product of the United
Kingdom; now we import 00,009,000
worth per annum. One hundred
years ago our shipping did not reach
two millions sterling; now the sailing
of our own and foreign ships runs up
an average of forty-five millions sterl
ing. In the year 1777 the borough of
Liverpool bought up the revenue of
its manorial rights for 2,330; one
hundred years after, the annual rev
enue from the same source was 230,
000! One hundred years ago there
were no public docks iu London or
anywhere else. One hundred years
ago the mail coaches had just begun
to run; now our railways carry 700
millions of people in the United King
dom every year. One hundred years
ago ballooning was in vogue, and
seemed destined to achieve great
things; a voyage was made from Eng
land to France; no real progress in
this direction can be recorded.
One hundred yearn ago, or there
abouts (177G), independences in Amer
ica had been declared. One hundred
years ago Arkwright had jiwt invent
ed his spinning machine, looms, etc.
One hundred yearn ago or a little
more, the country was astonished at
the recent erection of the first stone
lighthouse. (Smeaton, 1759.) One
hundred years ago Watt had just in
vrmlcd the condensing steam engine.
Quo hundred years ago Brindley had
jdril finished his first great canal and
SVorfHay tunnel. One hundred j'ears
ago England imported nearly all its
lion, for Henry Cort only invented
'puddling' in 1783. One hundred
ysfira flgo there was no gas or electric
Jfghl; no high pressure stcan engines,
no glenralxmta, no telegraphs, no
F&Wwnyii, etc. Tho working men
ol LuncftKhlre ono hundred years ago
Jlp4 pnalom little book learning,
Uni an enormous amount of brain
power, Jfcmy of tho principal inven
tions were made by them and lasgo
farlww M'aa tho result to some. They
had great physical strength, could
walk long journeys with heavy loads,
and their fare was simple, generally
milk, bacon, and some kind of oat
meal, one kind of which was thick
and hard, and was called 'jannock,'
since become in Lancashire synony
mous with anything genuine and
thorough. The goods were princi
pally carried by packhorses. John
Kay. of Walmsley, near Bury, the in
vontor of the 'fly shuttle,' made his
escape from a riotous mob by being
made up into a pack and carried away
on the back of a horse. He died in
Paris of a broken heart, guilt', like
many other men, of having invented
something for the good of Lanca
shire people, who turned against him
''Tennyson has hymned the praises
of our wondrous 'mother age,' and
bids us remember how much better
'fifty years of Europe than a cycle of
"Every one can see the groat con
trast between the material condition
of to-day and that which existed cen
turies ago. Take the last century or
thereabouts; the merely material,
physical, mechanical change inhuman
life is greater than occurred in the
1,000 years, nay, even 2,000 years or
more, that preceded it. In England
this material change has been more
rapid thau in any other country, and
is beyond parollel in tho world's his
tory. Yet the question has been
asked in our limes, 'With a thousand
times the resources of any that pre
ceded it does it use them to a thou
sand times belter purpose?' "
BLAINE AND LOGAN.
The public aro busy reading
the letter of acceptance from Jas.
G. Elaine and Logan. Gen. Logan
arranged, when visiting Blaine at
Augusta, to have .another and final
consultation before publishing their
acceptances, but his movements have
been kept silent, few knowing when
and where the head and tail of the
ticket would meet. Logan's friends
make no concealment of the fact that
he is pleasod with Cleveland's nomi
nation, considering Cleveland not so
strong in New York, New Jersey and
Connecticut as either Bayard, m
dall, or Thurmnn would have been.
It is staled that the nomination most
feared by Logan was Thurman, for
whom he entertains a high regard.
He believes Thurman to be stronger
with the anti-monopolists and labor
vote than any other Democratic can
didate, while equally strong in other
essentials. Blaine w;is also impress
ed with Thnrman's strength, especial
ly on the Pacific coast, and ho now
reckons on carrying California, Ore
gon and Nevada- without fail.
It appears that both national and
congressional Bepublican committees
are not satisfied to have Blaine dom
iciled so far east, and much desire
that he shall bo brought nearer to
the common center. It is too remote
to make a pilgrimage to Maine, and
they say it would bo more advantage
ous if he would locate at Long
Branch, Atlantic City, or even Wash
inton. Cleveland is within easy
reach at Albany, while Hendricks is
located at Indianapolis, midway
across the continent.
One of tho most important subjects
of the Republican campaign is now
under advisement. A great pressure
is being brought to bear to have
Blaine take the slump and emulate
Stephon A. Douglas in the famous
presidential campaign of 1SG0, when
the tickets of Lincoln and Hamlin,
Bell and Everett, Douglas and John
son, and Breckinridge and Lane were
in the field. Blaine is understood to
be somewhat averse to making a per
sonal canvass,but his manager thinks
if he makes speeches at Boston, Al
bany, New York, Philadelphia, Balti
more. Bichmond, Baleigh, Nashville,
St Louis, Louisville, Cincinnati,
Wheeling, Colnmbus, Indianapolis,
Chicago, Madison, St Paul Des
Moines, Kansas City, Topeka, Denver,
San Francisco, and such other inter
mediate cities as might be deemed
advantageous, he will arouso great
Tom Corwin's Reply.
Tom Gonviu undertook, when a
member of the Ohio legislature, to
have a law euactcd abolishing publio
whipping for crime. lie spoke at
some length iu support of his meas
ure, and an elderly gentleman, who
represented a rural district, answered
as follews: "Itfr. Speaker, the gen
tleman is not as old as I am, and has
not seen as much of the practical op
eration of the system of punishment
which he desires to abolish. When I
lived in Connecticut, it a fellow stole
a horse or cut up other antics, we
used to tie him up and give him a
real good thrashing, and he always
cleared right out, and we never saw
anything more of him. It's the best
way of getting rid of the rogues that
over was tried, and without expense
to the State" Corwin rose to reply:
"Mr. Speaker, I have often been puz
zled to account for the vast immigra
tion from Connecticut to the west,
but the gentleman last up has ex
plained it to my satisfaction."
For tho eleven months ending May
31 the O. li. & N. Co. report its gross
earnings as $5,020,177, an increase
over the previous eleven mouths of
S3G1,2GL The expenses during the
Bume period were 2,821,472.
The alleged portraits of possible
presidential candidates which appear
ia hundreds of provincial papers are
the means of showing the discerning
reader what art is not.
Banana custards is the latest al
leged delicacy. If you waut to see
banana cussed hard you have only to
leave the peel on the sidewalk.
The wine production in California
this year will be about 15,000,000 gal
lons. Mr. George Tindale, iu the employ
of Levy Brothers, Melbourne, Austra

mediate relief by the use of SL Jacobs
