Some Good Suggestions from
The Greenback party in Massa- 1
chusetts have adopted a resolution
declaring "that land of equal value
and capacity shall be subject to
equal taxation, whether culti-ated
or not, to the end that the land
monopolist in the future may be
held in check and that the -public
domain may be preserved to the
actual tillers of the soil." Very
It also declares against the pay
ment of the poll tax as a condition
to voting. This is now the law in
Massachusetts, and many persons
think such a law would be a good
one for this State.
It further declares, and in this
we entirely agree, that no person
should be taxed for what he owes;
in other words, that all persons
should be allowed to deduct from
the value of their estates the sum
of the mortgages thereon, and said
mortgages should be assessed to
the persons only to whom they are
due. It is palpably unjust to re
quire one man to pay tax on his
land and another to pay a tax on a
mortgage he holds on it. For in
stance the owner of the land which
is worth, say, $2,000 pays taxes on
it to that amount, while another
who holds a $1,500 mortgage on it
pays tax to that aniount. It has
been decided in California, by the
highest court in the State we think,
that the State cannot tax mort
The system of letting out convict
labor by contract, to compete with
honest labor, is strongly denounced.
The State can hire out its convicts
at cheaper rates than honest men
can work for, and thus the honest
laborer is made to suffer for the
crimes of thieves and scoundrels.

NEw YORK, Sept. 9, 187S.
Our previous letter was mailed on
he eve of departure for Stratford,
Conn., about 80 miles distant from
New York, which place, after a swift
and delightful ride (f about three
ours, was reached at night fall. Pleas

ask pardon for saying that the Rev.

er tokens on parting with the fairer
portion of his congregation at the de
pot on a late memorable occasion,
than did your humble servant on that
same piazza. It was a warm meeting
indeed, and your representative felt at
home although on the distant shore of
Connecticut. Every one there were
ex-Newberrians, Mr. and Mrs. Hurd,
Misses Emily, Harley and Anna
Hurd, Dr. and Mrs. Jackson and Mrs.
Ed. Bailey, the latter from Boston,
all looking charmingly fresh and
blooming. Later reinforcements were
added in the persons of Mrs. Ander
son and Mrs. Capers. The readers of
the HERALD who are familiar with
the names mentioned or, better still,
knew them in Newberry, and remem
ber their various excellences, will ap
preciate the pleasure we experienced
on getting into such a crowd, and it
is unnecessary to tell them that we
were inundated by questions. That
we reached the end and survived it all
is proved by this writing.
This was Thursday, and Saturday
all the preparations were completed
for a repetition of the picnic on ia1
ford Beach, in view of the distant
headlands of Long Island, given us
two years ago. It was a bleak, blus
tering day with a falling thermome
ter, and the heavens hung in black,
but in spite of the portentous look,
every voice was in favor of going. It
was deemed prudent, however, to wait
till nine o'clock, at which time an old
'prob' thought there would be a rift
in the clouds somewhere, and sure
enough there was, a libtle blue spot of
sky about as big as a piece of chalk
was discerned by one of the young
sters and soon young and old were on
the way, some in a pleasure boat and
some in a wagon. We were of the
boat party and though we have often
longed for "a life on the ocean wave,''
and delighted to hear how
"In slumbers of midnight the sailor boy lay,

And visions.of happiness danced through

was heavenly, but Mrs. J. and ourself
were of opinion that less water in ours
would have been fer pleasanter. The'
yoat did not turn over, however, though

Wool Has, Straw Goods, Parasols,
rrunks, &c., are we also under obliga
ion. With much surprise we learned
that straw hats are tabooed on the
tho first of September. Our tile un
fortunately was of that character, and
eeing this, Mr. J. took us into the
immense establishment in which he is
-ngaged, and fitted us to a nobby head
overing of the latest style. An act
)f such tender consideration was high
ly appreciated and we regretted not
being in the hat trade to give him a
healthy order-may the bread thus

Large measure. To Mr. A. Swanzy,

jobbers in Fancy Goods, Notions, &c.;
Stirn & Lyon, 20 Park Place, dealers
in Toys ; M. L. Gump, the printer's
friend; Mr. Rhodes of the New York
News Co., who can furnish any article
needed in Stationery, together with
Printers' Material, and very many
other accommodating and agreeable
gentlemen do we acknowledge hearty
thanks for kind and opportune favors.
By the way a little reminiseence is
apropos. Our good friend Wright,
who in the main is uniformly right,
on the occasion we now refer to proved
eminently wrong. It was our first
night in the city, and it was not to be
wondered at his getting demoralized.
Kindly volunteering to see Tarrant to
his quarters, Sweeny's, on Chambers
and Chatham streets, W. .proposed- a
short turn to Broadway, an& thence to
our quarters on Centre and Canal sts.
We murmured assent, upon his assu
rance that he knew the way. The di
rection taken seeming to be wrong; we
begged him to reconsider. "Oh yes,
it's all right, you can't fool me in New
York, and once on Broadway, it will
be as plain as if we stood in front of
the Court House in Newberry." Such
positiveness ,though not convincing,
was temporarily mnolifying (we had
already walked far enough to have
reacheJ'Broadway with a mile to spare)
so we trudged on, and on, the lights
growing dimmer,,and she crowd less
dense. The post office in its immen
sity loomed'up in the distance, and
he lights in the Herald and Tribune
offices, so high up were they, twinkled
like stars in the skies. "Ain't we go
ing down toward the river?" we sug
gested. "Oh no, if the court knows
herself and I think she do, we are all
right, New York is as plain as Web
ster's Speller-when you get on Broad
way." Just then we emerged on the
broad thoroughfare, and our friend
ooed as pleased as a boy with a pen
ny trumpet. "Ain't we down town?"
gain we asked ; "no sir, up, up, way
p," and not until the numbers on the
houses were examined would he yield.
'Backward, flow backward." It was
a weary tramp, and only enlivened by
Wright's muttering, "lost, who would
~aave thought it?" We did.
And now, reader dear, having seen
al that our limited time and means
vill allow we are ready for the home
vard trip, the start to be made at 6.30
7. mn., to-night, Monday, leaving Tar
ant, McCrary and Montgomery be
iind, still on the search for something
ew, strange and startling, but feeling
atisfied in knowing that they are as
ovely as big sun-flowers, and happy
is clams at high tide, and as we
vill travel faster than the HERALD is
rinted, will arrive home and greet
ou before this letter meets the public
Two Noted Grave Robbers.

nan as a scoundrel who will rob the
rave of the dead. But there are
wo noted grave robbers in the coun
ry, so far from being the subjects of
he people's wrath, are universally
auded for their virtues. The reason
s plain. While the former class steal
he dead bodies of our loved ones to
ubmit them to the dissecting knife,
hese only rob the graves to restore the
iving victims to our hearts and
omes. Their names-Dr. Pierce's

FOR THE HERALD.
Our Washington Letter.
WASHINGTON, D. C.,
September 11, 1878.
Your correspondent was first to
state that Senator Blaine, with the
shrewdness he has always exhibited,
was pushing the Grant movement
with the expectation that when the
time comes, as it surely will come, for
the people to say that no wan can be
renominated for a 3rd Presidential
term, he will capture the Grant
strength, or that, being then as al.
ways the. man most constantly before
the people, he will receive their votes
as the only sure means of preventing
the taking of another unknown man
like Hayes. The Senator knows that
it would be madness for a Republican
Convention to take any other promi
nent politician, and leave him out.
That would be courting defeat. And
so, if he can, as he is attempting to
do delude the innumerable friends of
Grant into a belief that their favorite
is to be nominated, and mostly by his
efforts, his own way seems to be reas
onably clear. The National Repub
lican, which is divided in its affeections
between Grant and Conkling, repro
duces the statement of your corres
pondent, and while professing to
doubt that Senator Blaime has any
such ideas, plainly shows that it fears
he may have. The Republican
does not know Senator Blaine's ca
pacity for intrigue. Hardly any
Democrat, whether with a fluency to
"soft money" or not in his financial
ideas, can help feeling a certain satis
faction at the Republican overthrow
in Maine yesterday. It is more of a
Waterloo than was expected by any
one here, especially as to the State
officers, Legislature, etc. But as in
Massachusetts, the people had a right
to complain of unnecessary expense
in the conduct of State affairs, and
there seems to have been dissatisfac
tion with Governor Conner. But the
Congressional changes-I write while
it seems certain cand:iates have been
defeated and majorities reduced in all
the others-will have the :nost effect
outside the State, and will do much
to discourage Republicans elsewhere.
All your readers know that hereto
fore all the five Congressmen have
been Republican, and the only ques
tion as to Governor and Legislature
has been as to the amount of majority
desired by the leaders.
*Speaker Randall says he thinks the
Democrats will carry Pennsylvania
this Fall, and he estimates the Demo
ratic majority in the next U. S.
House of Representatives at 30 and
believes it will be more rather than
less. Of his own election as Speaker
he is not in doubt. The only candi
date against him so far is Repre
sentative Blackburn, of Ky.
While a horrible pestilence is de
vastating the South-west we find out
the best side of the Northerner. I
have .only newspaper reports of itvhat
is doing in other cities, but I know
that here no race or sect or party
holds back. Every one has asked
of our aut'horities that a public meet
ing be called so that contributions can
be more safely and advantageously
sent to the afflicted. Something more
of iathod and responsibility in the
collections and disbursements is needed
as, I presume in other places, and
with that the gifts di~ld be larger
and more numerous. Failing to move
the authorities in the matter, leading
citizens have called a meeting to
night, and hereafter we may expect
whatever is contributed to reach its
appropriate destination. All is needed
that can be given. SOLON.

MEssRs. EDIToRs: Is the action
)f the Convention legal ? Were all
he delegates on the floor entitled to
their votes ? It appears to us in look
ing over the proceedings of the Con
vention the 22nd ultitno, that outside
f the Carolina Club, which withdrew
its claim for representation, there were
,ontesting delegates from Nos. 4, 9
%nd 11, who claimed *seats in that
body. The Committee on Credentials
imply made a recommendation to the
Convention, which adjourned without
taking any action on the report, and
when they reassembled on the 11th
inst., the Carolina Club, in order to
restore peace and harmony, withdrew
its claim. What became of the other
They may say that the ticket placed
in the field is the voice of the people.
We suppose it is while gag law is in
force, and combinations and cliques
re the order of the day. The coun
try may support the ticket on election
day, but it is evident to us that they
will not enter into the campaign with
the same zeal and unanimity that they
did in '76. Our nominees instead of
addressing the 15th AmendmeBt will
have to devote themselves to the Her
culean task of uniting the hands of
their own party. The country was
perfectly willing for one lawyer, but
to have two foist upon us is a little
too much. The Convention has estab
lished a very dangerous precedent.
Hereafter when any section wishes
their candidate nominated all they will
have to do is to raise a "tempest itk a
teapot," and he with his opponent
will be declared by acclamation the
nominees, so as to restore peace and
harmony in the party. No. 10.

play, and therefore give "No. 10" an
opportunity to express his views.
