TUESDAY EVENING. AUGUST :iO. Gkn. MAHONK'S Washington organ says vvi h Virginia in the republican column this fa'!, it Virginian would almost necessarily ha placed second on the republican national t'eket next year. As the republicans are wUe, such would doubtless be tbo case? though General Mahone would be excluded by bis repudiation record?aud n Southern man as the nomine.? for Yice President would add greatly to the strength r.f the ticket in the South, and would net \s? ...hen ii iu the North. But as Virginia is in the democratic column, why can't the democrats place a Virginian on their nation al ticket, as they, for a stronger reasoD. bbould do, pud thereby reap tho benc-iits ? hat would reeult from such action ? benefits tbat the republicans are wise enough to see, and which they are already striving to gain?

WEDNESDAY EVENING, AUGUST 31. The Cooly Women* who till the coffee I plantations of Southern Icdia have one pret? ty habit which I always admired, and it made me regret their generally slovenly drees. There is in the jungle a tlower which, I think, is known in England by the name of the India marigold. It resembles a doubif* Btock in Bhape, and is of a warm yellow at d brown color. This is a "samee,"' or sacred tiower, and is as holy as is the lotos to the orthodox Hindoos, while it can protect tbe wearer from all sorts of evils. The cooiy women have long black hair; it is not very clean,but at a short distance is certainly very lustrous and picturepque, and when the^-e "eamee flowers,"' witn their pale green leaves and fiery buds, are twisted among the tresses a-gracefully as women always know bow to do such things, whether white or black, the effect becomes striking and arli li?. though whether it prove?, a.s alleged, effectual in warding off aches and plagues is n|?en to doubt.?L...

- . ? % THURSDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 3. The New York Sun say?: "Docs anybody in Atlanta imagtue that if Mr. Jefferson Davit? should bo invited to at tend tho Piedmont; Exposition as tho city's guest to meet President Cleveland, the lat? ter would not find that pressing public du? ties compelled him to abandon the pleasing i-ngngement, greatly to his regret? There is no good moral reason why this should bo ho, but it would bo so, nevertheless." There are people who know that t'uo real reason why Mr. Cleveland suddenly changed his mind, aud refused to take bis wife to the Richmond fair, was the dread that the fact of her meeting tho daughter of Mr. Davis there would raise a clamor at the North. If the fear that a similar clamor wculd arise from his meeting Mr. Davis at Atlanta would induce him to withdraw his accept ance of an invitation to visit that city, that alsa should be known, and the people of At? lanta are not true representatives of the South if they permit the matter to rema...

-r~- i III u ^ALEXANDBIA. FBIOAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER '2. Nothing is better known loan tho fact lhat were it not for the protective tariff, many of the manufacturing establishments in the North, owing lo the natural disad? vantages of their location, would be com? pelled to close, or move South, to partake of the superior natural advan? tages of this section. And yet, strikingly inconsistent as it ie, it is neveriheless a fact that some of the most ultra republican pro? tective ni wspnpora advocate Ihe repeal cf the duty on sugar, upon the ground that Ruch a duty is a hot houso forcing process for the production of sugar in an unsuitable climate, and is imposed solely for the benefit of a few sugar planters in Louisiaua. There are more individual sugar planters in Lou? isiana than there are manufacturers in the North whose factories are kept in operation only by the hot bouse forcing process of the tarilf. But Louisiana is in the South. The duty on sugar should unquestionably be re? m...
