Jefferson Davis, speaking of the
New South, says:
"What the Southmust have is a
system. of tenantry to till its land.
A healthy system of immigration
would assure it a great future.
Whether the colored people will
ever reach the point of becoming
reliable and valuable tenants is a
question yet tobe determined. They
are improving in a degree, but have
not yet shown their ability to oc
cupy the place of white tenants.
The abolition of slavery has been
a great thing for the white man, but
I doubt very much if it has improv
ed the condition of the negro. Cer
tainly it has not so far."
He touches the root of a serious
evil that is felt by. every white far
mer at the South, but he touches it
in such as way as to indicate that
is not able to point out an ade
quate remedy. Thoughtful men
throughout the South realize that we
need a healthy system of tenantry;
they know that the negro is, as a
rule, neither reliable nor valuable
as a -tenant; and they know, too,
that freedom has not tended to im
prove him as a laborer.
The average negro is a failure as
a tenant. He has big notions, but is
not willing to do hard, systematic
work. He likes the idea of being
boss of his own farm and master of
his own time. He cares nothing
for improved methods of cultiva
tion, and is not, willing to work un
der his landlord's -guidance. He
hankers after "store-bought" goods,
and thinks that the privilege of
buying his supplies directly from
the merchant is the highest evi
dence of his being an independent
gentleman and farmer. He gives
his children a distaste for steady
work, and leaves them free to in
fest schools and churches, and in
habit prison houses. He likes to
play into the hand of the merchant,
r for ho thinks his own interests are
adverse to those of the landowner.
With a lien-ridden crop, the owner
ship of which is contested between
him and the grass, and a lien-fed
rack of bones that- goes under the
ne of horse, and in which certain
bid fthe air have a vested inter
est, he is happy. That is the aver
age negro tenant.
We are glad to do justfee to those
few negroes who are good farmers
and good citizens, and who are ac
quiring property. They are not of
the latter day species. They are
men who received their habits of
thought while under the guidance
of a superior intelligence and a
higher order of civilizaton-who
were- disciplined to frugality and
industry while under the rod.
They have little reason, hiowever, to
be proud of their offspring addicted
to "larnin'" and general worth
The question is perplexing, and
immigration will not furnish a rem
edy. As a social and economical
question in this State, immigration
is another failure. Some time ago
a prominent German of the State,
a bank president, said to us, sub
stantially : "The people of this
State cannot get immigrants of the
better class. Take the German,
for instance. He cannot come here
anid compete with the negro as a
farm laborer and retain his decency
and self-respect. In the old coun
try the German peasant has a com
fortable house and good, wholesome
food; he has his feather bed and
his cow; and while he lives plainly,
he lives decently and in comfort.
Here, in order to compete with the
negro, he is forced to live very
much as the negro does, and to give
up his ideas of comfort. He may
stand it for a time, but if he is of
the kind of immigrants we need, he
will soon rebel, and leave the negro
competition." There is good,
sound sense in those words, and
sensible men will see it. Immigra
tion is not the remedy, unless we
give the immigrant better advan
We feel that much would be gain
ed by bringing the tenant under the
direction of the landlord. This
would be best for both parties.
Left alone, the negro is a poor far
mer, and will ne er make a good
one. And we think that the land
owner should control the man who
tills the land, at least in the case of
the negro. One of the serious ob
jections to the lien - laW is that it
often places the tenant beyond the
control of the landowner, under the
thumb of the merchant who has no
direct interest in the land or its
improvement. Those farmers who
can, should furnish supplies to their
own tenants, and, as far as possible,
direct their labor. Of course this
should be done with a just regard
for the welfare of the tenant, who
should .be. provided with comfor
table quarters and decent surround
We are glad that the Obsercer
agrees with us in the opinion that
the homestead law should be amend
ed so as to prevent a creditor from
needlessly harassing his debtor.
After commending the amendment
suggested by us, the Observer says:
"A more effective amendment, we
think, would allow the creditor to
proceed after homestead exemption
is claimed" (and the debtor has
Thade an affidavit that he is not
worth more than the exemption),
"but with the proviso that unless
the debtor's property exceed the
homestead exemption, the creditor
will have the costs to pay." We
supplement our neighbor's amend
ment with the words in parenthesis;
otherwise we think it would bear
too heavily on the creditor. While
it is true that business is done with
reference to the homestead exemp
tion, personal property is of such a
nature and can be transferred so
easily and privately, that the most
prudent and sagacious business
man cannot tell what belongs to
the husband and what to the wife.
On that account, before the costs of
making a test. are fastened upon
the creditor, he should have a sol
emn assurance from the debtor that
nothing could be gained by pro
ceeding. The prospect of an im
mediate appraisement would deter
most of men from recklessly swear
ing as to the value of their proper
A GROUNDLESS CHARGE.-We
stated in our last issue that Rev.
Dr.. Mullally, President of Adger
College, together with his two sons,
had been arrested in Walhalla and
bound over to appear on a charge
of riot, and now it affords us great
pleasure to announce also that
after a preliminary hearing on Sat
urday last, the. case was dismissed,
there being no evidence to sustain
the charge. When an unsavory ac
cusation is made against a promi
nent man the general public are
desirous of knowing the facts, and
when such charge is shown to be
groundless the public are equally
gratified to know it.- In this in
stance we learn that after the case
had been dismissed, Dr. Mullally
offered his band to the prosecutor,
Mr. Mulky, and that he took it,
saying that he had nothing against

The Greenville News grows en

A SUCCESSFUL YEAR.
The managers of the American
Bible Society have just presented
their sixty-seventh Annual Report.
During no previous year of the
history of the Society have so many
pages of the sacred word been is
sued; and only a single year-the
last of the great civil war-ranks
the one just closed in the number
of volumes distributed.
In the United States the Fourth
General Supply has been auspicious
ly inaugurated, and in foreign lands
the Society has entered new fields,
while in countries where the work
had been previously established it
has been prosecuted with remark
able vigor and success.
Three hundred and eleven col
porteurs have laboured in this coun

six in foreign lands.
The receipts for the year for
general purposes were $597,641 91.
Of this amount, $283,999 55 were
received for books and on Purchase
account; $184,179 20 from legacies;
$60,376 33 in donations from aux
iliary societies, churches, and in
dividuals; $32,294 47 from rentals,
and the balance from interest and
other sources. Besides which,

Col. Aiken is not in favor of at

not willing for the State to make

prefers to keep them at the most

that they must after a while be
turned loose upon society. Differ

very different lights; what Col.
Aiken regards as wise, seems to us
extremely inhuman and absurd.

facturers by the use of an argument which always eon-e
vinces them that I am entitled to the best bargains, and
largest discounts. That argumenthi cash. Down, and
invariably "knocks the persimmons." I wish to remind
you that I intend to make myself necessary to the- good
people of this section, by sharing my close bargains with
them, believing in
QUICK SALES and SMALL MARGINS.
