Many now furnaces have been erected in different portions of the South in the past few years; and while the advantages possessed by the South for the mannufacture of iron are very great, still mistakes, and grave ones too, have been made in the location of many of these furna? ces. Many of them have been put up at points where a sufficient supply of iron-ore near at hand was more a matter of guess-work than anthing else; others were erected without a due considertion of railroad faeilties and favorable freight-rates, while the principal object in the building oi others was for the purpose of creat? ing a boom in town lots.

The Cherokee Strip. When the Senate ratified the treaty for the session to the United States of the Cherokee strip it inserted therein a clause which provides that the compensation for the land is to he made in time payment in place of the requirement that the Government pay cash, as was contemplated in the agreement originally drawn up with the Indiana. Thin modification of the treaty has not been accepted by the Indians, but will be considered by their legislative body, the Cherokee Council, at a meeting to be held at the capital of the nation next Mon? day. The early opening of the strip will he entirely dependent upon the Coun? cil, for should it reject the modifica? tion of the treaty made by the Senate then it will be necessary for the mat? ter to be again brought before Con? gress, which would, of course, indefi? nitely delay the opening of the lands to settlement. If, on the other hand, the Council accepts the change the anxious settlers who are now boding to secure home in ...
