IMl ioaoN ScuEMES.-The New Yoik
Ship Owner advocates the establishment
of an American steam ship line for the
purpose of filling up the Southern States
with industrious farmers, mechanics and
laborers. If Congress fails to take steps
towards aiding in the establishment of
such a line, it suggests to the States "de
sirous of increasing the ir laiboi ing popu
latio., to pay a b",unty of $25 per head,
- the same as Maine already does, and also
to offer any respectable organized corn
pany the loan of the bonds of the State,
say for $500,000, to run twenty cears at
seven per cent. interest -the company
to furnish security for the loan of these
or other veszels. By t-he co operation of
a number of States, a semi-wcekly- hie
could .hus be established of first crass
- steam ships, that would bring over and
turn to those States 100,000 emigrants
each year. Those emigrants who .came
from Germany and the North of Europe
last 3 ea-, averaged y30 in gold per head.
At this rate, which however, vould be
probah!r increased by the plan in ques
tion, $5,000,0() would thus be added to
the taxable - wealth, and every year at
lea;t $15,000,000 from the productions
'f the labors of the emigrants."

SUAL. WE MAKE BREAD OR COTTO.
If we may believe symptoms, the North
is on the.eve of a financi crisis. The
stoppage of.mills and factories,. the ~re
duction of tirne, the strikes among labor
ers, the sudden fluctuation of gold, the
returns from Europe of large dmounts of.
American securities which found no pur
chasers, thie overstocked mnarkets and
general dullness in trade, all seem to
mark the approach of a "crash." The

nail in to the head and clinch it :
"Men may sophisticate as they please.
They can never make it iight, and all the
bankrupt laws in the universe cannot
make it right for them not to pay therr
- debts. There i a sin in this neglect, as
clear and as deserting church discipline,
as in stealing or false swearing, lie who
violates his promise ta pay, or withholds
the ay:ment of a debt when it is in his

Wicked ! Sinful!! Diabolical! !!
With malice aforethought, we believe,
and with no hope of heaven in their
thoughts, we are sure, some unhappy in
dividuals have determined on legal pro
ceedings touching the late firm of Slider
& Greneker. It is an insane policy ; a
wicked, cruel act; against all reason;
subversive of order; and calculated to
hurt somebodys feelings. We view these
ugly, diabolical proceedings with lively
horror and dissatisfaction, and wonder
how can they? Strange, passing st-ange;
perhaps'they are mergir.g into radical
ism; can't account for it else. No one
is scared except it be at the thought of
being hauled over the legal gridiron, and
suffering from the tender mercies of those
wvho stir the coals ; there's the rub! It
is hard. We don't care a contit ental
otherwise, and.if our tears do flow, it is at
the thought of the melancholy ceect it
will produce on our unhappy, late co
partner, who is inhaling the sea breeze
in blissful ignorance. In tender consid
ratio'n of the above, parties indebted to
that firm are invited to call and settle,
and thus prevent any dire consequences,
rhich a failure to do may produce. Va
rious little notices have been sent out, all
which it is requested will be attended to

."Still they Come !"
We are gratified to state that our lists
are growing day by day. Old sub
scriers are paying up and renewing,
ad new ones are subscribing. Thei fol
lowing words are familiar, to our ear :
"Mr. Editor, please fitid - dollars and
renew my subscr-iption. I cannot do
without -the Herald." Mr. Editor, I
want -.y paper -once more-the mails
now reach nmy settlement." '"Messrs
Editor : Please find enclosed - dollars
for wl ich you will send me the New berv
Iierald-I learn thait mail facilities are
again established with my remote section
-and I must keep post.ed in the news
of the District."
It has been gnite, a deprivation to
many of our citizens living,. in dark
corners and distant sections of the Dis
trict, to be without the "light of the
Ierald," but there was no help for it
in some instances, owing to the disturbed
condition of the mails. Clubs, where
co!venient, atoned in great measure for
this evil, but now the matter is remedied
il the good old way.
A new subscriber told, us last week
that he had intended several montbs ago
to take the Herald, but had neglected it,
and had he done so earlier it would have
saved him a long ride to the village, in
a busy season, to see the tax officer, as
per advertised notice, that officer visited
bis neighborhood recently, and he didn't
know it till it was too late.
So it is!? There is not a citizen in the
district, who does not at some time (from
single item) receive a benefit from his
listict paper for exceeding the amount
:f subscription, to say nothing of the
imount of general intelligence to be
;athiered during the. year. What is. the
ocal paper-but va map of the busy
life of the district!

lable good to the reader.

each district will take "a district pri.de"

A BILL TO PlOVIDE FO! TI- MORE EFF1CIENT
GOVERNMENT OF THE INSURRECTIONARY
Whereas the pretended State Govern
ments of the late so-called Confederate
States of Virginia, North Carolina, South
Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi,. Alabama,
Louisiana, Florida, Texas and Arkansas
were set up without the sanction of the
people ; and
Whereas, The so pretended Govern
ments afford no adequate protection for
life or property, and countenance and en

Whereas, It is necessary that peace
and good order should be enforced in the
so-called States, until loyal and Republi
can State Government can be legally es
tablished ; therefore,
Be it enacted by the Senate and House
of Representa*tijs of the United States
of America in Congress assembled, That
the so-called States shall be 'diided in

That it shall be the duty of the General
of the Army to assign to the command
of each of said Districts an officer of the
Regular army not belou the rank of
.Prigadier General, and to detail a suffi
cient military force to enable such officer
to perform his duties and enforce his au
thority in the distu.ict to which he is as
Sec. 3 And be i firthr enacted, That
it shall be the duty 'of each officer as
signed as aforesaid to protect all persons
in their rights of person and property,.
to suppress insuriection, disorder and
violence, and to punish or cause to be
punished all disturbers of the public
peace and cirminals.; and to this end he
may allow.: civil tribunals to take juris
dliction of and to try offenders, or when,
in his judgment, it may be necessary for
the trial of offenders, he shall.have.pow
er to organize military commissions or
tribunals for that purpose, anything in

TarE WEATHER.-With the liveliest
emotions, and yet tempered with doubt
and fear, lest a chilling change break
the happy spirit of the dream, we chron
icle an improvement since last week.
The weather is now soft and genial, indi
cative of the rapid approach of spring
time, singing birds, opening flowers and
springing vegetation, An irnRenre ac
tivity prevails among gardeners, and
farmers, while the prediction gains gene
rally that the coming harvest year, after
such an intense and continuous winter,
will, be abundantly plentiful. We would
admonish our farmers to plant largely
for breadstuffs first, and lastly for cotton.
AcciDENT.-We learn that on Friday
night a week ago, Dr. A. L. Oxner, of
this district, while on a professional visit,
in plssing over theittle bridge this side
and near Bauknight's ferry, met with a
most serious accident. It appears that.
the night being dark it was impossible
to avoid all the many trap holes with
which this b idge abounds, and his
horse's feet getting caugl:t in one of them
the Dr. was thrown violently off into the.
ditch, receiving severe and dangerQus
wounds, from which however we are
pleased to know he is recovering. This
bridge is public property, and conse
quently it being the business of every
body in that neighborhood' to keep it in
repair, it unfortunately happens that no
one touches it. It is high time that it
be put in order.
A COUNTRY editor is an individual who
reads newspapers, writes articles on any
subject, sets type, reads proof, folds and

saws wood, works in the garden, talks to
all who calls, receives blame for a hun

but his own, works from 6 a.mn. to 1 p.

died in the midst of his usefulness while
trying to- live a country editor. Poor,
honest, mild old vet., he never injured
any one, but was an inveterate sticker of

he always 'stuck' to his 'stick', as a good

IIAPY PROSPEcT.-The great number
of applications for the position .offered
last week through the local column, for
an active man of muscle to do the out
side fighting is flattering evidence of
its popularity. We regret howe e'er, .that
circumstances have since arisen which
makes the necessity less urgent, as the
appeal made sometime since for the
friends of Jess Holmes, the 'phool killer'
to tell of his whereabouts has had a happy
effect, anid the hope is entertained that
the services of this distinguished character
may be secured instepd. This will re

Trally well done and needs no finishing
off i-om the bands of the lacal. The
friends of this gentleman, and others in
terested, are invited to read the following
notice given us by the editor of the
Danville, Va., Times :
As an Agent of 'Mr. Holmes, the Fool
Killer,' we deem it our duty to inform
our South Carolina friend that the
"brakes" have been let down on the
'indiwidual' in question for several years.
Some have supposed him dead; not a
few, who have felt only a gentle (admnon
ishing) tap of his club, reported that he
had committed suicide, [in despair of rid
ding the world of miaterial like them
selves!] We are, however, happy to
say, that Mr. "Holmes" is not dead, but
sleepeth, and to convince our friend of
the Herald, we will wake him from his
slumbers and "lift th'e brakes" just long
enough to say that he is now mauling
the Radicalism out of a N. Cardlina editor,
who 'preached' immediate secession until
he run his boots down at thie heel, and
then pledged the "last man and .the last
dollar" to "go it boots" in whipping the
"cuss'd Yankees," (as he used to call
'em.)--The lark is descried and picked

WASHINGTON, Feb. 17.-Sherman's 1
substitute was passed at half-past 6
o'clock, this morning-29 to 10. This r
is substantially Blaine'e amendment
which is as follows:
SEC. 5. And be it further enacted,
That when the constitutional amendment
proposed as article fourteen by the Thirty
Ninth Congress shall have-become a part
of the Constitution of the United States,
by the ratification of three fourths of the
States now represented in Congress, and i
when any one of the late so-called Con- t
federate States sbalr have given its assent t
to the same and conformed its constitu- 1
tion and laws thereto in all respects, and
when it shall have provided by its consti- I
tution that the elective franchise shall be
enjoyed equally and impartially by all ~
male citizens of the United States, -
twenty-one years old and upwards, with
out regard to race, color or previous
condition of servitude, except such as
may be disfranchised for participating in t
the late rebellion, and when said consti
tution shall have been submitted to the C
voters of said State, as thus defined, for a
ratification or rejection, and when the e
constitution, if ratified by the popular
vote, shall have been submitted to Con
gress for examination and approval, said
State shall, if its constitution be approved
by Congress, be declared entitled to re- .1
presentation in Congress, and Senators I
and Representatives shall be admitted r
therefrom on their taking the oath pre- e
scribed by law, and then and thereafter l
the preceding sections of this bill shalt
be inoperative in said State.
It is prefaced by a preamble providing
for the division of the lately seceded
States into Military Districts similar to
those proposed in Stevens' bill, b'ut gives
the appointment of the officers who are .
to control them to the President instead
of to the General commanding. It fur
thet- requires that all death sentences
shall be approved by the President be
fore they can be executed; that the writ
-of habeas corpus shall not be suspended,
and that no interference by the military
with the.State government shall occur.
The bill will meet with serious oppo
sition in the House. Several Republi
cans, iiicluding Brandagee and' Stevens,
are reported to be indignant at its pro- 1
posal to give the President the right of
appointing the officers, appr.ovng sen
tences of death, as also its permission to,Q
the Federal Courts to grant petitions for
the habeas corpus.
