Wortb--ville. . From Worth vine I came by carriage a distance of eight or nine miles. The ride to Cairo)! ton is a beautiful one. along the Kentucky river, a large part of the way. The bottom lands sre covered with thriving farms, and ea route, I am informed by my driver. Mr. Hunt, ot . Warthvilhv that Dr. Korvia Green., of the Weatera.rCnlpa. has - a splendid farm of 1.20O acres, a short distance up the Kentucky river, at Eagle creek. It is stocked with fine stock, and is one of the moat valuable properties properties in this part of Kentucky. The locks ot the Kentucky, river are Just a few miles up the river from Carrollton. which la nested very anughr' upon the corner of the high land which marks the intersection of the Kentucky with the Ohio. Carrollton is a pretty plae. with broad ff.-n.m ff.-n.m ff.-n.m streets and magnificent shade trees. It has about 3,000 inhabitants. The county court-house. court-house. court-house. In which the convention is being held, ia a handsome structure, which affords ample room for the delegates. Shortly after my arrival last nigh I filed a dispatch of a few hundred words to the Couirer-JournaL Couirer-JournaL Couirer-JournaL In eompliaaoe with the request of Mr. Lewis, the tele, graph manager here. I abbreviated it as much as possible. Mr. Lewis got one-half one-half one-half of it off to the operator at Worth-ville, Worth-ville, Worth-ville, when the latter had to throw up the sponge, declaring that the press of railroad business would not permit the dispatch to go through. Tour correspondent correspondent is. there f ere, pretty badly hand-ictpped. hand-ictpped. hand-ictpped. He will be compelled to send his matter by a special messenger to Worth vllle, nine miles distant, tc have it telegraphed. v A preliminary surrey of the field impresses impresses one with the conviction that It Is yet anybody's race, and more especially especially that in the Sixth district " politics politics is very hot" sure enough. There is an attempt being made to combine the sf-"- sf-"- sf-"- sf-"- - of the "country candidates, L those outside of the Covington and Newport districts. The " country" men say they are tired of giving everything to Kenton and Campbell. It this attempt materializes, it will make itself known upon the second or third ballot. At present, however however it doesn't look much like the country country will unite on any one man. Gaunt. Dickerson and McCain are all working hard for the prise, and think they have a good show.. If Kenton eoonty is divided divided lim chances of her two candidates will, as a matter ef coarse, be lessened ; and that may redound to the advantage ot one of the " country" men. I do not hear anything of Berry's strength being augmented, and be baa some very Viucr enemies here, who are doing all they can to defeat him. The Hallam men and the Berry people are pretty tluck; and if the former should secure the solid Kenton delegation a ' coalition might eventually occurv in easr either would see that they could gala no votes from, tbe " country." Gaunt doesnt seem to have much strength outside of his owa county, though I may be mistaken In this. . The Grant men do not talk very strong for their man; and it any ef the conn try candidates show np formidably, I will expect it in McCain or Dickerson. Tbe convention commenced to assemble about aoon, and it was 13:30 when it was called to order by Hon. Rod Perry, Chairman of the District ; Committee Mr. Perry merely announced (liat'aeeord-ing (liat'aeeord-ing (liat'aeeord-ing to the rule adopted by the late convention, convention, at Louisville, the Chairmen ot the County Committees had met and selected selected Judge C.

The lat ter made a short -speech, -speech, declaring his Intention to preside impartially, and to keep tbe best order within his power, antil the permanent organization should bo announced.. He was greeted with applause. applause. When Judge Cram had taken his seat a resolution was offered to the effect that the roll ot counties be called, and the selections ef each be made known of the dclegaten named for Vice ' President, Committee on Credentials, Committee on Resolutions, Committee on Pennanout Organization, 'v " - This was adopted, and the call began. When Kenton .' county was reached, Lieut-Governor Lieut-Governor Lieut-Governor Bryan and Hon. Harvey Myers both rose to answer. Mr. Bryan, however, sesnred the floor. He said that his delegation was the only one with the proper credentials, and urged various various precedents to show that thd temporary temporary Chairman should only recognize that delegation having the affidavit of the Chairman of the County Exeoutive Committee, and that' the delegation, without such affidavit, should present its claims to the Committee on Creden-tiahv Creden-tiahv Creden-tiahv The report ot that committee would state whether the gentlemen were entitled , to seats in the convention. Senator Newman, ot the . Campbell county delegation, differed with Mr. Bryan. Bryan. He said tbe latter bad held different different views in the ease when Judge Desha Desha had been euohered out ot a nomination. nomination. Considerable confusion ensued at this point, the Berry delegates cheering cheering lustily for Newman, and several rfc&ng and clamoring for recognition from the chair. Mr. Brraa again took the floor and asked Senator Newman what would be done in the case every county came with a contesting delegation. Who would bo recognized as the people? Senator Newman responded that, be supposed the matter would be referred to the honorable gentleman hinue'.f reply which was followed by laughter and cheers from the Berry men.

The Democrats would not have been granted even this small proportion, except that Democratio votes ware needed to enable the combine to control the House at all hours Of the day, so as to make sure of a quorum', when the attendance of members was beginning to grow thin. Only seven of the bills now so nearly passed are measures measures ia which Democratio members are interested in.

ABSENTEE LANDLORDISM. A Bill te Prevent Sack a State of Affairs Affairs Ia tae U at ted Mates. Washington. June Representative Oates, ot Alabama, from the Committee on Judiciary, to-day to-day to-day reported to the House the bill to prohibit aliens from acquiring title to or owning lands within within the United State. Aa elaborate report report accompanied tbe bilL In it tbe committee says the power ot the Government Government to exclude aliens from coming within its Jurisdiction, as hac been done In the ease ot the Chinese, no one questions. questions. This sovereign power certainly includes the lesser one. of defining what property right they may exercise, after they are admitted, and during the continuance continuance of their alien condition. Your committee ascertained, says the report, with a reasonable certainty, that certain noblemen ot Europe, principally Englishmen.' Englishmen.' have acquired and now own about 21.000,000 acres of land within the United States. We have not sufficient information to state the quantity owned by untitled aliens ; nor is it so important, a it Is generally held in smaller bodies. This alien non-resident non-resident non-resident ownership will, in the course of time, lead to a system of landlordism incompatable with the best interests and free institutions of the United State. The foundation of such a system is being laid broadly in the Western States and Terirtories. The avarice and enterprise of European capitalist, capitalist, the report continues, have caused them to invest many million in American American railroad and 'land, bonds, covering perhaps 100.000,000 acres, the greater !art ot which under foreclosure salos will, most likely, beftir many years, be-tmx9 be-tmx9 be-tmx9 the pro perry of these foreign bond-" bond-" bond-" holders, in addition to their present princely possessions. . This aggressive foreign capital is not confined to (he lands it boa purchased, but, over-la over-la over-la ping it boundaries, has caused hundreds hundreds ot miles of - the publio domain domain to - be fenced ap for the grazing of vast herds of cattle, and set at defiance the rights of the honest but humble settler. The bill proposes proposes to place these aliens nnder the disabilities disabilities of the civil law, as to all future future attempts to acquire lands in this country. In other words, the report says, the bill ia a declaration against absentee landlordism. It declares all foreign-born foreign-born foreign-born persons who have not been nanralizcd incapable of taking title to land anywhere within the United States, except a leasehold for. not exceeding five years, and it baa no retroactive, but a prospective, operation. It aLo contains a provision which will compel alien land owners to ceaae to be such, or to become citizens of tho United States within tea years. The bill, the report says, would prevent anr more abuses like that of a Mr. Scully, who resides in England, and is a subject of the Queen, but owns 80,000 acres occupied by tenants, mostly ignorant foreigners, from whom he receives receives as rent $200,000 yearly, and ex-Inds ex-Inds ex-Inds it in Europe. The Schenly estate of about 2.000 acres, - within the city limita of Pittsburgh and Allegheny, frtan the rents of which the Schcnlya, who are subjects of the British Quem, draw annually annually not less than $100,000, Is another instance of alien landlordism in America. The Tenth Census shows that the I mud States has 670,000 farmers, the largest number possessed by any nation in the world. In conclusion, the report says: " With the natural Increase in people snd the 500,000 foreigners who flock to our shores annually, and by competition are reducing the wages of labor, making the battle ot life harder to win, how, a few years hence, to provide homes for our poor people is a problem for the American statesmen to solve, The multiplication ot the owners of the soil is a corresponding corresponding enlargement of the number ot patriots and every hind owner in this country should we allegiance to the United States." - - - - Editors Having Faa.
