when.tihe body wras about to be buried, the rela

signs of life, and the body was removed to the
house, where It was kept for severl days. A re
potn got.ioto circulation at the time to the effect
that the body had come to life.. After keeping
the body for several days, it was removed to the
lower grave~yard and placed in a.vautlt,. where it.
now is, and it has.been visited by hundreds of
our citizens. The body retains its natural ap

* ~ Our Situation.
The greait changes which have .taken place i

do. . The year on which the- people of the South;
haye entered is one altogether of experiment. It

cause they do not believe that the freednian will
work as well ad as faithfiully as he formerly did.
It is supposed by many, that no inducements ofj
pay, or reward for his labour, will stimulate him
to work .eo as to overcome his natural desire to
avoid labour. tIahis supposition should prove
to be true, then the experiment of free labour
with the negro at the South is at atn end.
The question as to this kind of labour, ~brings
itself to this point ; .that the negro ?nust work or
his place will be supplied by labourers from a
broad ; the poor people of Europe will immigrate
to the South, and cultivate the linds of the
South ;-and then it may he a difficult maitter for
the negro to obtain employment necssar.y for
his support and maintenance.

the freedman, it is in his power to avert -any of
the calamities that -may befall 1im in this view of.
the case, if be wm~ be industrious and economical.
He can control the labour of the country id- the
cultivation of the soil. What is required of him
is that he will be honest and industrious, and be
~willing to work.: If he does thie, he will always
find employment and enough labour to which he
can turn his hands, to mak it a source of bene
fit and of profit, not only to himself but to .hisl
employer. ~By such a course, he 'will secure La-;
bour and employment ; for as a. general thing
the former owners:of theslare, would be willing1
to employ bim, rather than white labour. This
the land holder wdald do, because he is aceus
tomied to the labour'of the'negro, and under
.tands his nature and character as. a labourer
be,tter than~he does that of a white man.
It is the intention of the writer to follow this
number with several others bearing, upon the
subject named at tl)y head of this article. This
is intended to serte as introductory of those that

The Rev. Dr. Raiysor, wvrit-ing from Barnwell
District, S, C., under date of the 16ith,. commu
nilcates the following pleasing information:
"The freedmen are doing well in our country.
They have ceasd.theig wanderings 'to and fro,'
have made, contracts, settled down, and are work

The House on Monday passed a ceoncurrent
resolution to adjourn in May. The country will
respond to this action much in the same temper
as the maiden whoQse lover, after his acceptance,
was urging an early day for the marriage. "Why

swain; when, seeing she nesitated, he -added;
"If May is too soon, call it June, ng angel!
"Oh!" responded the bliss-an ticipating damnsel

aife, bustle, business was refreshing after te dull
ness of a-few preceding 'days. All kinds of blst
ness seemed to revive, and our merchants partic
ularly were obnmdant in smiles under the inflr
ence of active sales in dry goods, groceries, &c.
'Our auctioneers were rnticulay 41aPpy in dis.
posing of their various odds and ends. Much
valuable property went off under their hammers.
One or two individuals seemed possessed with
the insane idea, that, by using their throats as
avenues for a torchlight procession or two, they
would have a good time. We are happy to say
that the torchlights arrived safely without acci
dent, that is they reached the stopping place in
good flame, but alas, the after effect was sad, for
flickering but a short time, the blaze went out,
and the smoke became so overpowering that, the
unfortunates, with shai-y knees and swimming
eyes, confessed that the snyoke was too much for
them, and went home whipped.

under a bushel we are ejjoined, and an old dutch
fork lady noticing our egg answer to "young
wife," hst week, acting under this wholesome
injunction, kindly gives further information
on so important a subject. She says hens
should be set in the morning, in preference to
afternoon or evening, for the reason, that chick
ens from the former plan, hatch better and grow
faster, at least a week earlier, are fatter and eat
sweeter. If tids he true, we made a sad blunder
in setting our good old turkey hen on last
Saturday night. And again that all seed
should be put in the ground in the morning.
There again we bare done wrong. She says fur
ther that dentists are lumbugs, that the tooth
ache can be cured wihout extracting the tooth,
and sends us the plan for the cure, which we will
favor any one with for ten cents a head Apply

business qualifications, afid with a capital of

The Charleston Board of Trade.
The merchants of Charleston display great en
ergy in their effurts.to build up the commvvial
and other interests of theft grand OId City. They

IW. S. Hastie, "upon taking the chair, says the
News, thanked the meeting for the honor ~tey
conferred on him In entrustfrig- him with the tq
ties of presiding. over thetir deliberations, aurigf
them that, as far as he cotid, -be should ablays
endeavor to render the'Bord of trade useful and
efficient for '8rrying out the objects of its or
ganization ; that the times and circumstances are
somewhat discouraging; that Charleston now is
not what it wa, five years ago. Fourteen mil
lions of. banking capital, which was diffused
among us with a liberal hand, bas been ewept
away. . A large portion of our individual- means!
has been scattered to the fore winds of,Heaven.
Still we hope, by energy and indomitable indus
try, to rebuild our shattered fortunes, and to
pfice tFid old City pf Mnereston, commercially,
far ahead of any- position she ha. yet occupied.
To this ei.d, we invite the capitalist, the artisan,
and the laborer from every clime and country, to
settle among us, and to aid us in developing the
resources of the country.'

The Chicago "Republican" contains the folow
ing dispatch, dated Indianapolis, Ind., March ':
A horrible tragedy occurred in. J.edford last
night. It seems that Prof. Madison Eran, in
regard to whom there was some scandal a short
time ago, had -seduced a daughter of Dr. Benja
min.Niwland. The Doctor's -daughter had been
off at a boarding-school, when her condition be
came so apparent that she was sent home, wher
she confessed-all to her father. The Doct&r took
his pistol and one of his -disse6ting knives, and
went to Evan's house. The latter was not at
home. Newland went to -hunt him, and .ound
him in tbe street, -where he shot him down, and
ent him to pieces with the knife. - Evans was a
n,inister of the Ghristianr church, and a man w-ho
at one time oeeupied;a high position, and is- well
known as the author of a work entitled "The '
Pioneer Preachets of Indiana." Hie at-one - .ian"

. "It consists in inhaling through the -nose the
emanations of a,mmonia contained in a smelli:.g
bottle. If the sense of smell is completely obl
eated, the boulIe should be kept-midey the nose
until the pungency of the Volatile. 2dkgxli is felt.
