The production of Cotton was further liinrei

not seem tu be very clear to the friends of tb

the idea is correctly put. We mako no comment.
Taking it all in all, we think it would bavt

public duty which would not permit him to rest
satisfied. Put there is danger in this accumula

It may n?t bo known to somo of our readers

tho commnnd of tho corps. Other officers bare
hastened to tho summons, and we suppose tko
Company thus formed wid number nearly two
hundred men. Coming f/om Columbia on Satur
day last, we met tiotne seventy or eighty brnvo
Georgians of this command returning with fresh
horses to Virginia. Up?m being informed that
they were called to Charleston, overy face was
lit up with a glocm of pleasure. Ono who seemed
to be an officer remarked: "I hor>? we can do
good fighting for the csuse it, Virginia, but f k-.n-te
we can in South Carolina." W0 announced the
call to tho various sqcad* as wo met them for

such a manifestation by our nohle krothers of tho

realize that unselfnb devotion to our common

invincibility. We could cosily ree another indi,

Mr. EDITOR : You will permit me to inform your
readori, that, in justice to niyielf, I wish to cor
rect a falsa imp'rvisiun that a complimentary card
from tho ISth e'- C. V., har produeod in the minda
of those who do not comprehend. When collect
ing last fall and prom ?.-od to send tho list of names
of thc subscribers to different Regiment!, I sent
a lilt to the lWth Regiment te Lieut Col. Slaw,
and BS.rr.oc artielei and things rent to different
plaees-and tboie sent by Lamar Aid Association
woro nut returned to the proper parties. It should
kare boen Ham! g, not Beeeh Island. Capt.
Taos. C- wrote a letter to Mri. R. G. LAU AR
thanking .A and the Society through her for the
?ame; laid be did not.know the miitako till in

take occuned in the lost card thanking me instead
of the Society. It il trae I eolkotcd the large
lot of blankets lent, but the members of the
Society made up the carpot blankets and the cloth
which was collected also. I do not wiih te rob
any one of honor? or merit duo them.
The ladici here deserve mach praise for the
quiet way they have accomplished io much. Since
tho absence of our estimable Secretary, Mrs. R.
G. LAMAR I havo been Secretary of the Society
appointed by her and tho President, Mrs. A.

your readers will see that I gave the Society

GOT. Brown and Our Public Debt.
MR. EDITOR :-There is an error of considerable
magnitude in Gov. BROWN'S Meisago, or that por
tion of it quoted by you in your paper of a late
if nie. Allusion is made several times to our debt
ns a "billion" of dollars. Our debt can never
reach (hat sum, though the war should continue
fifty yean. Ten thousand million is not a billion
ai Gov. B. would seem to indicate, bnt it takes
one hundred thousand millions to make ono bil.
lion. There is perhaps hot io much money in all
the world. On enumerating, we say millions*
tens of millions, hundred? of millions. Now it is
not billions as many suppose, but its thousands
millions, tens thousands millions, hundreds thou
sands millions. Our public debt is large enough
in all conscience. Let us nut unnesiarily exag?r
ate the amount. COLBOURN.
If a mun were to 1 vio one hundred years and

?alf that sum.

A Had Fashion.
Man is pre-eminently an imitative creature.
Perhaps it is well that he ia so, or else-there
might bc no progress of improvement among
thc m.-.sses. But somehow human uature is
such that we are dure prone to imitate what
ia bad or indifferent, than that which is ex
cellent. .It would bs cun'ous, if not instruc
tive, to recount the many bad habits and fool
ish and pernicious fashions which our peupla
hare taken, by inoculation aa it were, from
former association wita the Yankees. And
it is a little strange, too, that, notwithstand
ing the war has made us all nate and despise
tbe Yankee nation, we have still held un to
many ul the vile things fur which we were
indebted to them. Eow easy it is for mon
who ure but children of a larger growth-to
tV.il away into bad practices, but how difficult
to renounce them.
We shall not enumerate the many bad bab
ita we have derived from the Yankees, but
only mention une, which never eame much in
vogue which we hoped had entirely died out,
but which t-eems just now springing into new
use-and that is the custom of publicly ad
vertising fur a husband or s. wife. Wc know
not where or how thc iashion originated, but
it must have been set by the l ree-lo vs Yan
kees ; it was certainly very common among
them, or is still. Confederate newspapers
are beginning to show such advertisements,
in anticipation of the close of- the war,,, and
we regret that they come generally irom the
soldiers, the very last persons who should fol
low Yttikee fashions, and particularly such a
detestable one as this. It iu incomprehensi
ble what sort of an idea a parson eau have of
marriage, who hawks himself or hsmelf about
iu this public msuncr, seeking a market.
There may br. exception*, but generally such
an advertisement for husband or wife, as il
the advertiser wanted something of the na
ture of a-burse, or a dog, or a slave, ebouid
b-j held un prima Jade evidence that the ad
vertisar ha? no conception uf what consti
tu? ea husband or wife, ind is totally unfit for
tither relation. We hope the vile practice
may be nipped in the bud, that the thought
\K?3 will give it attention enough to fie? bow
ioaitmoinr it in, ?lid tbot the reckless, who re
spect not Ih&nsemt, may come to respect
oom mou decency*) ano ?eave such abomina
tions where they properly belong, with the
Yankee*.- Augusta Constitutionalist.
-? _o- ?
Nothing can be more absurd and disgust
ing than the lordly cou tempt occasionally af
fected by >ome politicians fur the neWi-paper
press. The Press is a power in every .State
- a power scarcely second in constitutional
Governments tu that of thc throne itself.
The London JVmes wields an influence in
Christendom such as no single statesman of
this age exerts. The Press uf the South has
heeu thc life and breath of this Revolution,
it may have committed errors in ibo begin
ning of tho war, but those are attributable tu
the novelty of a slate of things which led oth
ers into errors besides th* Preen. With these
exceptions, it is impossible lo over-estimate
the impetus which ttl?) ?'iouthcrn movement
has derived from the Pres?.. It has aroused
tho patriutism, encouraged the hopes, nerved
thc hearts, and strengthened the arms uf the
people of the South throughout this contest,
it. has pointed out daDgers to be avoided,
called attention to tho necessity of economy
and retrenchment, stimulated the agricultural
interests, and denounced abuses in the ad
ministration of affairs with unsparing fidelity
and boldness. . Ten thousand ?uch politi
cians as undertake to denounce this power
ful organ of public sentiment could not ac
complish as much for the pub'ic interest as a
single press. Thc Press has no motive to be
utherwise than just and honest. The public
interests are it* interests. But the interests
of politicians do not always harmonize with
those uf the people. Their peraonal eleva
vatiou, not the public good, is the object uf
their lives, and if necessary, the public will
have to give way to self. What hann have
not politicians done to humau society I They
have corrupted t?e people, sacrificed princi
ple and honor, and lighted the Usmc ol war
itself for the purpoi ? uf advancing their am
bitious projects. jCy will ruin our own
couuiry, if they are permitted to attain as
cendancy iu her council, which they can nev
er do lill they have muzzled the Press.

NARY A PRAYER.-There i.'. a rule at Ober
lin College that no student shall board at
any bouse where prayers are not regularly
mado each day. A certain man fitted up a
boarding house, and filled it wi tu boarders,
btu forgot until the eleventh hour the p ray tr
proviso. Not being a praying tuan hitnaclt,
be looked around for one who was. At length
he found oue, a meek young man fn?ui Trum
bull county, who agreed to pay his board in
praying. For a while all went on smooth, but
the boarding master furnished his table -to
poorly that the boarders began to grumble
and to leave, at}d the other morning the pray
ing boarder actually "struck." Soruetning
like th? following dialogue occurred at thu
Landlord-" Will you pray Mr. Mild ?"
MUd-? No, sir, I will not."
Landlord-" Why not, Mr. Mild ?"
Mild-"It don't pay, sir. I can't pray on
such victuals as these, and unless you bind
yourself in Writing to set a better table than
you have done for the last three weeks, nary
another prayer du you get out of me I"
