blank book, worthless in itself but of inestimable
value to thie said " Association," and pfrticularly to
the Directness who had it in charge. We trust it will
be mentioned at once to us, It any one has seen the
book at any time, so that we may possibly obtain the

LEXINGTON 11W IRE.,
Some playful allusions recently made by us, to
mrtain matters having connection with our respected
ister District on the east, have called down upon our
ievoted head several vials of dish-water slang which
we have neither time nor inclination to notice inl e.
lenso. We merely take occasion to say, that our jokes
ar jokes ; and whdn we find that people cannot re
ply to them without evincing gique and chagrin we
sesse to perpetrate them in such quarter.
The Play responded to us a few' weeks since in
somely terms, and made a capital running commen
tary upon cur annotations in Lexington, once or
wice fairly turning the tables upon us. This was
ill very good and very pleasant. But since then,
some one, calling himself " A Looker-on," has felt
it his duty to read us quite a lecture on -good man
ers kc., taking for his text a parenthetical remark
about tsYKnAr, QuaronaN which occurred in a para
;rah of ours nearly two months ago. In the face et
this writer's evident spitefulness, we freely assure
jim that we think quite as much of his District au
ae deserves to be thought of. We have no doubt
that her people are as honest, orderly, law-abiding
and patriotic, as the people of any otjser District in
the State. Though the face of the country presents
a most cheerless appearance irgenerally, we are yet
aware that she has citizens (andl many of them too)
who by dint of frugality- and energy have acquired
handsome competencies;--ins some instances, fortunes.
We know also that her standard of morals is equal
to that of any other part of South Carolina; And
we have heard that in educational mttters the spairit
of her population is progressive. At all this we re
joie. And yet with all of iit in fell vIew, we could
but smile (and would do so again) at the idea of
len. Jonix A. Quirsi, a member of Congross invited
to the State to delirer an address on a peculiar occa
mien and having inmportait -business in Washington
City demanding his immediate return, delaying his
movements and sacrificing lhis time In. riding unin
ited over those heavy sand-hills, to visit a little vil
age so unkhown to fame and so unltresting in
itself as Lexington. Really wa must take another
t, Aa, at the iepetitionof the Idea; and if '" Look
sr-on" or any one else chooses to regard It bad man
nrs, he must makce the most of it. We always laugh
at a funny idea,.and surely not eyen our good lady.
friend down in Lexington will blame us. when she
thinks the matter over a litle.--By the -way,
"Lookeron" has surely, done this gentle-Woman
reat injustice in putting in her mouth such an ugly
word in applicatios to ourself,-not that ass regard
its oensiveness in the, least-but we should be sorry
to think that the LexIngten ladies had such ekpree

MAURITIUS, OIL TIIK ISLE O4 .FJ1ANCE.
There is a small island in the Iiidian Ocean, some
six hundred miles East of Madagascar which is in
ereas T jr.wi Esiperiwn't'sitli-e labor that have
been iade iapoti it within thelhet half 'century. It is
known -uyou the - map us tu,,ritias, or the fie of
Pruece, anid bas belonged to the English sineo-1814,
having been then cde'd by the Trencli under an ar
ticle of the peace of that year. Its white population
is largly French, with an admixture of Eiiglish and
other peoples ; and its society, distant and secluled-se
it is, has the reputation of no inconsiderable degree
of polish, edueaiion and retinement. For many.years
it was a slaveholding. community; in 1820; of 8-010
inhabitants, about (63000 wers laves. - The system of
labor has since that time- ardergune siveral changes,
un'til now invotauntary secrvitule no longer exists on
the little island,but has been supplanted by the labor
of Ilindoo inmirant , as they are called,-and which,
it is claimed, is a genuino instance of the success of
free labor in develuping tropical wealth.
Whether this-development may not'be set down ns
the result,'f peculiar adaptation of cliniate,-soil,,and
seasons, to the easy growth of certain vialuablo pro
ductions, rather than as arising from any particular
complexion of servitude connected therewith,-and
whether the small area of country here to be devel
oped is of sufficient consequence to mark it as any
thing more than an experiment owing its partial suo
cess to such adventitious circumstances as might or
might not 'tell' in other localities,-aro 'questions
that should of course be well weighed before deciding
the instance of Xhuritius to be an argument for free
labor rerSus slave labor. But a precedent considera
tion is, whether "free labor," in the case of Mlauri
utie, is free labor,-whether those captivating words
may not really represent a system free only its name,
and not in its actual operation. Upon this point we
have recently read with much interest a letter from
Lieutenant HAnxasusAx, of our Navy, being one of a
series he is at present contributing to the columns of
the Philadelphia Ledger from his distant wanderings.
lie writes after a sojourn of some length upon the is
land in question, during which his enquiries were es
pecially directed to the true condition of labor and
the laboring population under the existing establish
ment. When we add that Lieutenant H. has evinced
in a previous series of letters, the accuracy and accu
men of a clbse observer and a correct thinker, his tes
timony in regard td the present matter will be recog
nized as entitled to much consideration. It is in sub
The "free labor" of Jluuritius is admitted to con
sist in the labor of free Iindoos, who have come to
the island without compulsion, and the purpose of
whose coming was to enter the service of the Xliaur
tian proprietors, as laborers. But it is stated..upon
the information of respectable planters of the island,
that they have mostly been deluded into the step by
highl-sounding promises of wealth and position. -One
of the Lieutenant's informants, a Mr. MonaAir, used
such language as this upon the subject: "Why, s*
said he, -" we have to tell them the most abominable
lies to indu'ee them to come. We have to promise
them that they shall be princes and judges, and live
upon the faiLof the landl, &c. ie." These are th~e
worils of a planter who works three hundred hands
plo~e t nslge the ignorant Hindoos into this ser
vice. But with all such trickery it appears impossi
ble Lo entrap enough of laborers to answer the purpo
ses of this diminutive planting districL. Resort has
been had to the policy of elevating some of them to
the post of overseers with many extra advantages and
prIvileges; and after they have heconie fully satisfied
and pleased with their promotion, they are sent to
beat up recruits in India. Their perquisites are pro
portioned to their success in this business, and of
course they leave no story untold to achieve it. Yet
after all, as we have said, is the supply meagre and
insufficient to devolope thu fuill resources of the island.
Deluded and entrapped into a five-years term of la
bor for which they receive, little or nothing, the poor
Hindoos can with difficulty be persuaded to enter into
any contract for a second term. True, they remain
on the island; but it is purely on account of their in
ability to get away, the restrictions of the island gov
ernent and their own slothfulness operating together
as a virtual embargo upon their privilege of locomno
tion. And thus many of them are kept in the ser
vice of the islanders at the lowest rates of hire com
patible with a tolerable subsistence. Many others
though qjuit thecservice in utter disgust, preferring rath
er to eke out a scanty support with such limited means
and'failities as are allowed them by the civil authori
ties. As a consequence of this oondition of thing's,
there is now presented on the island of Xf~aririne a
picture which scarcely ba its parallel on earth. Itis
the picture of nearly 150,000 unfortunates of inferior
blood held in subjection to a superior race, not as
slaves, but as free c(iie~f forsooth ; f70,000 of wom
are the tools of unscrupulous task-masters and em
ployed in cultivating coffee, sugar, and cotton planta
tions, at rates that the ineanest free laborer in Ameri
es would scorn to notice; while the rest,-sonue
80,000, men women and children,-nre subsisting as
best they can by their own shackled exertions, and
forming perhaps the most immoral, depraved andl
'vitiated rommunity in the world. That those who
are under engagement on the plantatioins are virtually
slaves, our Lieutenant avers upon these grounds:
(.) No free laborer is ever swindled into an engage
ment as these Hindoos are. (2.) No free laborer is
ever whipped by oyerseers as these Hindoos are. (3.)
No free laborer La hunted up by the law and returneA
to the employer from whom he has deserted before
his term of serrice has e.rpired, as these Hindoos are.
(4.) No free laborer, works five years for his passage
money, food and clotiing as his only wages, as these
The conclusion is, that Mauaritiana free labor exhib
Its far greater evils in its train than does involuntary
servitude as established in the Southern States of the
American Union. It is a harder service even while
th laborer Is athis.best degree of health and strength ;
but when he is old, and weak, and decrepid, and when
he is then thrown off as a useless and unprofitable
appendage, to shift for himself as best he can, it
surely becomes an Infinitely more odious system.
When in addition it Is remembered, -that the women
and children of this laboring class are left uneared-for
and unprotected by either individual or governmental
aid, and are now literally involved in the most cor
rupt degradation, does not our noble patriarchal es
tablishment stand out in bright colors by the contrast?
And yet this boasted little Is!. of France is held forth
as the very Utopia of Free Labor, as a living argu
met lin favor. of free rersus slave labor, as a light
arisen on the distant Indian Seas to guide mankind
into the humanities of social life, as a model .for the
nations of earth, by which to shape their domestic
institutions. Prepoaterous humbuggery ! A Devil
teaching Theology ? Down with the hypocritical cant.
Look to Ameriea,-book 't@ the Sunny. South,-if ye
woud see the only true, the only practical, the only
humae, the only Christian, the only successful or
ganisation of .labor. Here It stands, Arm, immovea
hl and prosperous under God's sanction. And here,
with His blissaing, it will remain, to the fulfilment
perhaps of one of the oldest prophecies of Holy Writ.
