nte Agriculturist.-We have r -ceived
the four first numbers of the second volume
of this periodical, published ,in Nashville,
Tenn., at $2 per annum, payable- in ad
vance; and take pleasure in recommend
ing it to the patronage of Agriculturists and
the pulic generally, as it contains a varte
ty of useful matter on numerous subjects,
as wqrll as that of Agriculture; and is a pe
riodical that deserves to find a place in the
library of all who seek knowledge.
Ventriloquism.-The citizens of our vil-,
Jage were much gratified by an exhibition
given by Mr. D. E. DUDLEY, of his won

the tricks done by him, were both amusing
and instructive; we therefore recommend
him to the public as worthy of patronage.

place the white journeyman upon .a level
with the negro, in all the cities of the Union,

every city, hamlet or village iti our yast
extent of country; and we hope there are
so presses in the country but would assist
them, it the maintenance of their mechan

Tailors we conceive to be hard; more es
pecially, as the employers have not, we
are informed, reduced their prices, one
iota, to the consumer, but are now putting
work, made by negroes, who are known to
be inferior workmen, upon the public, at
the same rates, as that made heretofore by
white workmen of the first class. We have
always been, and still remain, advocates
for fair prices, to journeymen mechanics,
.and have always considered that employ
ers, in all cases of reduction, should com
mence the work themselves towards their
.customers, thereby showing an example,
which the journeymen will, without a mur
mer generally follow; -but we find, in all
cases of reduction of wages, the consumer
is never once thought of as a party, and the
poorjourneyman, who has to do all the la
bor, is the only sufferer. Some employers
are apt to cry out "hard times," when
they find they have made bad speculations,
in Bank, Rail Road, Canal, or other vision
ary stocks, ot&ers dabble too much in po
.litical stock, with the hope of its, at least,

We have been visited by cold, heavy
rains, nearly.every second day for the last
month, wbich have operated greatly to the
disadvantage of the farmers of the middle
and upper districts. In the lower-country
it has been impossible'to get a gord stand
of cotton, and we have heard the same
complaint made in tiis district in regard
to corn. .Small grain generally looks well;
and the prospect never was better for a
great abundance of fruit, of all kinds, than
at present -Greenile Mount'r. 1Ath inst.

Extract of a letter from a large Cotton
planter in the upper country, dated Union
District, May 1, and received here on Sa
"The prospects for a Cotton crop this
year, are very bad hereabouts. We have
had a remarkably cold spring, with much
wind and cold ramt_.whichhave. proaxuaed
the-iottonseedmfrom coming up, and the
pround is baked so hard on the seed that
it never will come up; and some are plough

shall be compelled to plough up. some of
myfioliis, and plant corn instead ofecotton.
What I have stated is a general thing over
this section as far as I have heard-and ii
known in Europe would or ought to raise
the present price of cotton.".

From Texa.-By the arrival of the
steamship Neptune, in 32 hours from Gal
veston, we have recived Texas papers to
the 2d inst. The manifest of the- etune
states that news :had been received from
Austin at Galveston, that the loan had
been regotiated at 95 cents, at Paris.
This mustbe a mistake, as the negotiations
which were to depide the per centage to,be
given an the bonds were not terminateil at
tho last European dates. -.
The.French Corvette Sabine, was still
at Galveston. -
Corn was selling on the Colorada at 25
cents per bushel.

TO THE PUBLIC.
T HE Journeymen Tailors of Augusta, MP
fering under the lash of the must malig
nant oppression and persecution, respectfully
ask the attention of the public to this plain state
ment of their position and situation.
The employers of this -ciy, on the ninth of
March last, considering the wages of their jour
neymen exhorbitant, united and combined
themselves-not to put down the wages to suit
the exigences of the time-swithomt asking die
co-operation of the journemen to cormet er
rors, or put down the rate of items that might be
considered unfair or unreasonable, resolved
recklessly to strike right to the heart's core of
the poor man's rights. to tear up root and
branch, his privilege-even to be acknowledged
a party to a bargain in which his necessities
were as much interested as the avarice of die
employer. They offered us an alternative to
work for their prices or be discharged. Prices
too insignificant and contemptible to be looked
at by men-if within their hearing we may
presume to call ourselves such. We were dis.
charged. We then offered a compromise of
10 per cent. to 15 per cent, discount on our old
prices, which added to the 1&or JS per cent.
disconut on the depreciated money we were
compelled to receive as pay, would make a fair
deduction of 25 to 33 per eent. on the original
prices. (It is useless here for us to undertake
to show to a mercantile community, that the 25
or 33 per cent. alone is conside a fair profit
in any ordinary business. We would also call
remembrance that this 25 or 33 per centum is
added to the usui profit on every garment made
and trimmed. or sold to order, and necessarily
comes from the customer, and the difference in
the amount that the customer has to pay in
funds, and'the depreciated money thatty pay
their workman is a gain in the employers
bands.) This offer wa' refused as a matter of
course, the next proposition should come from
them-we waited quietly and silently for this
proposition-instead of offering any they be
came enraged at the bare idea of a parcel of
poor men presuming to have understanding and
wills of their own.
Maddened withaivariciou hunger they rush
ed like starving wolves t6satify,ther a pe-.
teson any thing-that they-entice into their
