Wk haven't a very favoraMe navy, but
we have a way of building and manning
ships of war in a hurry, where eircuru-
tiiiices demand them, and if we get into
war with Germany over Soinoa, it would
not be long till our flag would wave
over all the sea.
Tiik following is the pledge Senator
Tolk made tho editor of this paper, about
! o'clock in the forenoon. ov. , IX
which was election day :
"Abby, I could no more vote against
"siibin.'.ion tlian I could cut my right
'hand off. How could I, after the way
I was raised, vote against audmission it"
We liave htood ly mnator Polk, wo
have fouirht for him, we have defeadpd
him on every fide till today. We have
.stood up ami called men Jiars for his
sake. He has never had a betic-f friend
th in us till today. Wc arc his enemy
today; it hurts m to siy so: it nearly
kills us to be so. We cauaot help N fr
he voted against Submission yeatc-iday,
and "Alcohol" is our bitter enemy.
A yorxrj lady of Stella, not having a
favorable opinion of church member?,
hands us the following item for publica
tion. While we do not agree with her.
we insert it, in order to give our readers
food for thought: If Jesus Christ ran a
carpenter shop in this town, there are
fully one half of the church members
who drive up to our churches in their
fine carriages who would not speak to
him unless he lived among the quantity
or belonged to some big club, Tribune.
The vote upon submission in the i-tate
6enate, yesterday, will be a surprise in
many respects to the people of the state.
First we had been lead to believe from
the oft repeated rumors and newspaper
reports that submission would probably
fail in that body, yet thanks to senators
who represent the party, some of whom
had made no pledges nor committed
thimselves upon the all absorbing ques
tion it carried just as the obligation of
party expressed in convention required.
The republicans of Cass county however
cannot boast of their delegation in ths
senate, and it is with sorrow ami disap
Ioiutiueut we notice the action of Sena
tor Polk upon this question. His action
with the whisky ring will be a great dis
appointment to the republican party of
Cass county and especially to the larger
number of the senator's friend,
who when constantly assured by
him during his canvass both for
the nomination and election, that
he was in favor of submission. We arc
reliably informed that the senator's writ
ten pledge to vote for submission is in
existence and that it will be published,
:xt least, we guarantee it will be published
if we can get our hands on it. No man
has the right to deliberately deceive his
friends and constituents in this manner.
If he is opposed to giving the people an
opportunity to vote on this or any other
question, as an honest man he should say
so when asking for their support. In th
case of the seuator his pledges to vote
for submission were freely made, bifth
before the election and since the organi
zation of the legislature, and it is a ser
ious thing to thus recklessly break faith
with friends and party, at the back of
the saloon keepers and whisky riug. The
Her t.d proposes to follow this matter
up and give the public the full facta
touching Mr. Polk's course with our peo
ple oa this question.
SOUTHERN COTTON CLAIMS.
The case of the State National Bank.of
New Orleans, formerly tlte Louisiana
State Bank, may possibly involxe a just
and fair claim against the government
but there is certainly good reason for
Joo.bt upon that point or the bill would
not b opposed by Senator Edmunds
and other distinguished lawyers. It
appears to be indisputable the Louisiana
State Bank was the fiscal ager.fc of the
confederacy, and while this doed not
absolutely condem its successor, such a
fact is suspicious, in a general way, par
ticularly when the claim has bet n investi
gated and rejected by the treasury
department It is a claim connected w ith
the ueizare nd sale of cotton for the
benefit of the government; and all claims
of that sort have an unpleasant odor. To
be sure, it is alleged that the cotton in
question was taken and sold after the
close of the rebellion; but it is by no
means certain that the conditions were
essentially different from those of cases
directly related to the operations of the
confederacy. The idea of setting aside
the statute of limitations in order to give
the claimant a chance to recover where
payment was long ago denied by the
proper authority is therefore doubtful, to
say the least; and a doubtful legislation
upon such a subject.
It'has been supposed that when the
statute of limitations was passed as to
claims of this character the design was to
put an end forever to that method of im
posing upon the government. Abundant
time was given for the consideration of
all cases in that connection, and it was
certainly understood that rejected claims
should not be taken up again under any
circumstances. If one such claim may
properly have a rehearing, then there is
no reason why any such claim should be
debarred. The statute of limitations
should be strictly observed, or it should
Itc entirely set aside. It will not do to
say that a particular claimant is entitled
to favor when in fact, as the law now
stands, all preference is forbidden. There
are thousands of persons in the South who
th'iiiL they have been unjustly dealt with
in the matter of coiio;; claims; and if a
banking institution which was opec iho
tisc.il agent of the confederacy is to have
an exception made ia its behalf, these
other thousands have an equal right tp
such treatment. The only true and safe
rule is to observe the limitation whic?
was imposed on purpose to close the
Southern claim business for all time. It
it not at all iil-rj?! y that any serious wrong
will be done by letting me iff stand,
without favor on any account or in any
direction, Jho government has already
paid too many southciii pjai's of one
kind and another. It is the duty o con
gre to see that no more are allowed;
and tucrto ae fecial reasons why no par
tiality should be shown in i'uui rpertto
a concern with such a record as that of
thfl State National Bank of New Orleans.
AMERICAN CORN AND PORK IN'
As the greater part of the corn and
pasture land is situated on the hill and
mountain sides, its cultivation is neces
saril arduous and expensive; and for
every five years the farmers generally
count upca one bad year, sometimes two.
Either too much rain spoils Jhe crops or
early frost nights destroy the corn and
potatoes. But the people do not lose
heart; they try again. When they have
forests or fishery, they make good their
losses from these sources, or they cairy
on more extensive sheep and cattle farm
ing by means of their great mountain
pastures than the farm could otherwise
support. The Norwegian peasants live
frugally, but, notwithstanding this, their
farms are generally luortgaged. They
cannot compete with the great porn-pro-tlucing
countries, e.-necially since America
lias begun to supply the market of the
world witli its enormous productions of
corn anil pork. Many are trying to con
fine themselves 10 sheep and cattle farm
ing njy; but the change involves much
expense, and the character of the people
do; s not dispose to e&sily relinquish the
labor of tilling the soil; it is the noblest.

"Somo of the most amusing mis
takes, however, are those made by
peoplo who get the titles of books

some catalogue or newspaper, but don't

peculiar. One woman came in tho
other day and asked for 'The Rhine
stone, and went out mad because one
of tho clerks told her wo didn't sell
jewelry. Another wanted 'The Car
dinal's IeUer,' by Ilawthor ic. It took
our whole force about fifteen minutes
to get at what she really wanted, 'The
Scarlet Letter.' She said she knew
there was something red about it some
where and thought it must be car

Professor Lee, of Bowdoin college,
who accompanied the Albatross expe

experience in the South Pacific. Years
ago the Fcuador government planted
a convict colony on Charles Island,
one of tho Galapagos group.
The convicts reyoued, killed the
governor and escaped, Jeaying behind
pigs, cattle, donkeys and horses. Since
that time no one was thought to live
there, and at Chatham Island, another
of tho group, the Albatross party were

A Chinese Autocrat.

Chinesc merchants were given as ref
