The Ohio State temperance conven

A New Orleans letter states that
the city finances are in a deplorable
condition, and over four thousand
pieces of property have been sold du
ring the past year for taxes. The rate
of taxation has been enormous, in i
many instanies as high as the valua- S
tion of the property.
One gets a clear idea of the amount
of mischief so little an insect as the
grasshopper can accomplish, when he
reads from his ravages some fifteen or
twenty thousand people are destitute t]

West, the grasshopper will be spoken
of with more respect.
In Holland. horse-shoeing is done

The horse stands in a stall, across the

A remarkable marriag,e recently
took place in British-India in the
presence of a large congregation. The
bride had no arms, and the ring had
to be placed on the third toe of her
left foot. At the conclusion of the
marriage ceremony she signed the
register, boding the T en with her toes,
in a very decent "hand."
A St. Louis woman separated from i

Since the inauguration of our new

exchanges continue at this rate be- t!

REDCE As WELL As PoSTPoNE 'IlU
TAxEs.-Nlr. Cannon's resolution in
structing the Committee of Ways and t
MIeans to inquire into the expediency
of so amending the tax law as to ex
tend the time of payment of taxes, and
to collect them in two instaillments, is
a step in the right direction. Thet
people will find it difficult to pay the
tax at the time fixed, and it would be
some relief if the burden should bei
bothi extended and dividedu. But
another thing should be done. The :
tax shon!d be lessened considerably.
It is monstrously high, when wye con
sider the condition of the pe ople, and
their at.ility to pay it. What need:
is there of such enormous taxes? WeV
want only a simple, moderate and
economical government. MIr. Cannon's
resolution might be profitably amend
ed so as to instruct the Ways ami
3Ieans Committee to consider the
r-roper and necessary reduction of
taxes, and the curtailment and dinminu
tion of salaries. This is the reform
required by the necessities of the pec
ple. Curtail, economize, reduce. The
poor people, who can hardly get
bread, and who ecannot educate their
children, demand that all officials shall
be put upon shorter commons. Luxu
ries and extravagance are insulting~ to
these hard times.-Phiair.

It is not positive whether it is owned th
by the G. & C. or the S. C. R. R.,
but it matters not. One thing is cer
tain, Uncle Joseph is out. And ano- ar
ther, that Col. Peake has been ove d(
the line, and havingimade his estimates,
is ready to commence work as soon as
he can get the timber delivered to him
at the points which he shall designate. t
Col. Peake told us on Thursday last P
that he would commence almost im- bL
mediately, and that if he has no serious
drawbacks in weather, that he will
have communication between Laurens de
and Newberry by the middle of June
next. As soon as he can get over the
Erst trestle he will have a train fur

the S. C. Road, and after that the
work will be plain sailing. Col. P. is
an experienced railroad man, and we t
have no doubt he will be able to make
good his promise. We take this oc- of
