One would judge lrom the maimer
in which the hero of Aibor Spriug
LoJge breaks out about "Surveyor
General ring" and "job .Stevenson,"
and all that sort of chaff, which his pet
Grand; Jury threshed out before his
tearful eyes in the .long :go, that the
sensitive epidermis of otic friend had
been slightly pricked by somebody;
but when that gentleman learn that
neither the olJ nor the iii-w regime of
which he seems to live in aortal dread,
have any influence or interest in the
old Herald he may feel eatier. We
throw this in by way of encourage
ment to our puguacous friend, and for
the reason that we don't want him to
weary, or even pause, in his mission of
cleaning out the monopolies of the
country. The Herald is not a mo
nopoly by any means, it is simply an
humble witness by the wayside to tes
tify of 'the great exploits of the sage of
Arbor Springs, and others of his school,
born to save the people from the ruaw
of the grasping monopolies of the age.
Let u see, the last we ht'a;d was some

Doubtless the action of the su
preme court of the United States, in
declaring the civil rights bill unconsti
tutional, will bring dosru upon thai
tribunal much adverse criticism ; more
on account of the fact that this act of
congress, along with many of the re
construction acts, born i f troublous
times from which they sprang, was
suppposed to be of the things of the
past, so far in the rear of the new rra
as to be seldom tho ugh i, of, or remem
bered, y the fast going people of this
country; supposed to be acquiesced in
by all sections of the country and hence
should not be disturbed. We notice
the aged Frederick Douglass, whose
great heart has bled for his downtrod
den fellow man, with the black skin,
through a long life of usefulness, de
spondingly dwells upon this decision,
of the court of last resort, as a blow
at his race. We, however, are not o?
that class who believe this decision will
prove a blow to the colored race in any
sense. The constitutionality of this
measure was gravely doubted by many
great leg-tl minds, in both political par
ties, at tlie time of its enactment by
congress. It was passed at a time
when the bitter feelings between the
people of the North and South was
still at fever heat, aud before socie ty
in thai section of our American Unicn,,
which had for generations owned and
controlled the colored mail as a chattel
and slave, had reconciled itself to the
condition of affairs with slavery abol
ished, aud their social status turned up
side down by the ruthless h ind of rev
olution ; or as they teimed it and looktd
upon it, by the power of conquest.
Since that era a great change has un
questionably come over that section of
the Union ; prosperity vujtb her golden
wings, has been hovering over the Sooth
manufactories, trade, commerce, have
sprung into existence in tijat section; a
strong, toiling, prosperous people have
taken the place of the old unprogres
sive s'aveocracy ot ante helium days;

believe tliat in theae agencies, and these
laws, rest the future proprrity f our
cjuutry ; rather than in any tort of
legislation with tendencies towards -cial
regulation among the classes.
The constitutional amendment, ar.d
legislation, deliuitig the rights

enactment of the supplemental civil
rights tc, clear y ejtablish the colored
man's rights and status before the law ;
his bocial status, like that of every
class, must and ivill be settled by other
rules and laws than those enacted by
We do not believe that the determi
nation of the illegality of this civil
rights act, or law, will effect the status
of the colored people one particle.
That an iynorant prejudice yet exists
in the minds of many people against
the colored race is undoubtedly a fact;
that it is fast dying out is also tiue;
and that as time progresses and the
races intermingle in trade and the oth
er occupations of life it will gradually
disappear, is naturally to be. expected.
Social matters must be regulated by
communities, neighborhoods and iodi
viduals to suit themselves; - hence we
believe the time foe the necessity of

court says is beyond the scope of the
constitution with its amendments, has
THE CANADIAN SUCCESSION.
Froii) the New York Tribune.
The Marquis of Lome and the Prin
cess Luise are receiviug the farewell
greetings of the Queen's Canadian
subjects. Addresses of a complimen
tary nature have been read to them at
Ottawa, Montreal und elsewhere; roy
al salutes have been tired and large
crowds have gathered to speed them
on their homeward journey. The pop
ular enthusiasm, however, is lukewarm
in comparison with the remarkable
demonstrations which greeted them
upon their arrival live years ago. It
is natural that the leave taking sho&IJ
be less cordial aud impressive than the
welcome; but apart lrom the necessi
ties of the case, it is evident that cer
tain illusions which were ' entertained
at the opening .t the .darquis ot
Lome's term have bee dispelled, and
that his true relations to tUe people of
the Dominion are now more accurately
discerned. At the outset his oflicial
station was overshadowed by his social
distinction as the Queen's son iu-law.
It was the presence of the illustrious
lady by his side that gave significance
to his appointment.
At the close of his term the Canadi
ans are convinced that the attempt to
stimulate the loyalty of thu Provinces
by the selection o. the Piinceis' hus
band as UoverinraGeucral has not been
successful. It has been evident that
the Princess has not enjoyed her stay
in the Domiiiou, but has looked upon it
as a period of exile, to be broken up by
frequent journeys to England. The
mimic court in the lumbermen's capi
tal has been managed on principles of
republican simplicity, and has left no
social impression upon the public'life
of the Provinces. The Duke of Ar
gyll's son is better liked now than he
was when he came, but his relationship
to the Queen has ceased to be regarded
as a matter of political importance.
Tht Canadians have the practical in
stincts of English-born and French
bred colonists. They know that their
future depends upon their own politi
cal genius rather than up the character
and services of the Imperial officials
who temporarily represent the mother
state. During the Marquis of Lome's
term of office a new economic system
has been introduced, and the long series
of deficits in the budgets of the
Confederation have given place to a
substantial surplus. There has been a
marked improvement i their fian
cial standing since the protective sche
dules were adopted, ; Their credit is
better in London ; great works of in
ternal improvement have been under
taken; and the stability of the Confed
eration has been promoted in many
ways. The issues" are of fundamental
importance to the Canadian people, and
their leisure is fully occupied witk them
and with reflections upon the tenden
cies of republican institutions acioss
the border. The appointment of a new
Governor General and the return of
the Queen's son-in-law aud daughter,
dwindle into affairs of minor import
ance beside the political development
and ultimate destiny of the Confederate
AMPLE CROPS IN 1883.
Fr.ni the New York Tribune.
The October report of the Agricultu
ral Bureau is rather discouraging to
those who have labored so hard to whit
tle down the crop of 1883 in order to
push up the price. Only a week aero
The Produce Exchange Weekly . pub
lished elaborate calculations to prove
that the wheat crop mu3t be over 25,
000,000 bushels less than the burean
estimate of September 1, but now
comes the October report, embracing
averages based on recorded results of
threshing in tbe different States, and
Staling that "tl final average of yields
"will not differ much from 11.3 bushed
per acre. The aggregate will exceed
'400,000,000 bushels, and fcmav reach
420,000,000." The report of September
1 estimated a yield of 417.243,595, and
the latest returns do not seem to war
rant any material departure from that
Moreover, we have the detailed
statement of injury to the corn crop
by the frosts of September, which in
terested par'.ies insisted would reduce
the yield to 1,200,003.000 or 1,300,000,
00 bushels. The official return, after
giving the the averages of conditien for
the difiereut States, says; "The product
"of the year will be close to i.ooo,000,
000 bushels, " with more soft corn than
"last year.'mostly in regions that con
same their entire crop." The largest
crops ever grown were a little over 1,
700,000,000 bushels; the crop of

has been exceeded only twice, aud the
crop of has be-u exceeded only
twice, aud the crop of 1 HSU exceeds that
by 4 per cent in acreage, but falls be
low it 5 oer cent in condition. - There
can be no doubt, it these returns arc
correct, that the country has available.
with its large surplus mm last year,
more wheat and more corn than it has
ever yet been able to sell and consume
in a hinule year.
The oat crop is altogether the largest
ever grown, the bureau report making
it apout 6oO,0(0,000 bushels. The bar
lev crop will average between one and
two bushels to the acre more than that
of last year, and will be nearly o0,000,
000 bushels, also the largest ever grown.
The potato crop is officially reported
as in Letter condition than in any year
since lo7o, and the prospect is ravora
ble for a large yield. It may be added,
alo, that the estimate yield of cotton
is 6,000,000 bak, which, though less
than the yield of last year, has been on
ly twice exceeded.
With au aouudhitf supply of all ' the
great staples, this coHntry ought presr
eutly to tree itself from the embarass
ments which attend business. The
chief impediments to rapid recovery is
the excet8'.ve speculation in productr,
which constantly interferes with their
natural distribution and makes indus
try too dependent upon the result of
