FARMERS AND FERTILIZERS.
The farmers of Pickens County
held a mass meeting a few days ago
and adopted resolutions requesting
rti the fertilizer companies, merchants
and others who have made advances,
to make a "reasonable reduction on
all such advanees." They also de
cided, in view of the short grain
crop, that it would be patriotic in
"those citizens engaged in the dis
tilling of grain to discontinue the
same as soon as practical." We
sympathize with the Pickens farm
ers, but the drouth was not more
disastrous in their county than
elsewhere throughout the State.
There can be no wrong in asking
those who made advances for agri
cultural purposes to grant another
year's indulgence, and in many
cases it will be best for all interested
to do so ; but the farmers have no
right to demand a reductior The
guano 'me.chant, like other trades
men, exposes i wares for sale,
but compels nobody to buy ; and
the debt for fertilizers should
be stled in a satisfactory manner.
if possible-in an honest way, at
all events. The boy who owes
for a bag of shot, would hardly ask
for a reduction in the price agreed
upon, on the ground that he used
the shot without bagging any game.
But it would be as reasonable for
to do so, as for a farmer to try
ade the payment of a guano
on the ground that the fertili
was expended without benefi
cial results. The guano merchant
is no more responsible for the
drouth, than the hardware merchant
is. for the poor marksmanship of the
bo.While this is true, it is also true
tat many men will not be able to
pay out, and if those who have
made advances can see their way
clear to make reasonable reductions,
or togrant a year's indulgence, we
shall rejoice with the farmers.
We agree with the Pickens farm
ers . that it would be patriotic in
those "engaged in the distilling of
grain to discontinue the same." We
need the corn, but we do not need
whiskey. A drouth that would
leave the distilleries dry would be
an-unlooked for blessing
The law requires the State Board
of Examiners to adopt a "uniform
series" of text books for use in the
public schools. A short time ago.
the Board did adopt a cataloguee of
text books, about as uniform as
-* a clown's costume. For instance,
following the "series", adopted by
the Board, one teacher may use
Appleton's readers, another Mc
Guffey's, another Reynold's, and
still another. Swinton's. There is
uniformity with a vengeance ! If
there is a public school teacher in
this State who could possibly adopt
a less uniform "series" of readers.
we move that he be at once elevat
ed to the State Chair of stupidity
or made a member of the State
Board of Examiners. "-Series" does
not mean --Catalogue."
Mrs. Mary E. Bryan begins her
"random talks" in the Stenny South,
- with this sentence : "On a hazy,
dreamy aftcrnooni this week I drove
to see a new industry ini the burgh
near which my own vine and fig tree
blossom." The "new industry" is
a rabbit ranche, which, by the
way, is not as unusual as a fig
tree that blossoms-this the writer
will discover by a closer observa
tion of her own and other fig trees.

A CHINESE FUNERAL.
PUhILADELPHIA, September 30.
Hog Chuck, a Chinaman, who died in
the almshouse on Wednesday last,
was buried to-day with interesting
ceremonies. The body was encased
in a handsome walnut casket, with
a plate on the lid bearing the date
of the birth and, death of the dead
Celestial. The bottom of the casket
was filled with Chinese coins, and
the body was covered with peculiar
Chinese perforated paper with let
tering on it. . At the grave the Rev.
Mr. Lyle repeated the Lord's Prayer
in Chinese and English, after which
a number of ribbons which were
bound about the body were removed
and thrown upon the coffin. The
casket was then lowered and while
the gravel was being shovelled upon
it the Celestials cast meats, rice,
tea, baked dough, roast chicken and
a black bottle among the dirt. On
the way to the- grave a Chinaman
seated beside the driver threw rice
and paper along the ground travers
ed. Ten thousand people witnessed
the ceremonies at' the grave. It
was intended to have had some ser.
vice in the Church of the Epiphany
(Episcopal,) but the crowd wa.s so
great that it was impossible to get
into the church. Mayor King re
fused to allow the New York Clhi
nese band to go in the procession
and the police stopped the fire cere
mionies in front of the house from
hich the deceased was taken to
the grave. Nearly all of the Chi
ese in the city attended the inneral.

LorisvrLLE, Ky., September 2'7..
-The National Colored Conven
tion late last night adopted the fol
The National Convention of
colored men assembled respectfully
present the following as embracing
and presenting their views and sen
First. That we are grateful for
and rejoice in the miraculous emnan
c1pation that caine to our race
twenty years ago. The shock of
embattled arms was the lullaby of
a nation born in a day. We can
not forget the great sacrifices of
the women and heroic men who
made possible the struggle in which
treason and slavery were consigned
to a common sepulchre. nor would
we be unmindful of the measure of
devotion and patriotism that white
and colored soldiers rendered the
Second. That we are not insen
sible to the fact that the Congress
of the United States has spread
upon the statute books many laws
calculated to maks, us secure in our
rights as citizens. Nor would we
be forgetful of the magnificent
amendments to the Constitution in
tended to rendler forever impossible
the crime of human slavery.
Third. We do not ask for any
more class legislation. We have
had enough of this. But we do be
lieve that many of the laws intended
to secure to us our rights as citizens
are nothing more than dead letters.
In the Southern States almost
without exception, the colored peo
ple are denied justice in the courts.

and happy in the land of their na
tivity. 'he white men and owners
of the soil in the South can settle
the question of labor and capital
between white and black.
Fifth We believe in a broad
comprehensive system looking to
ward the education of young colored
girls so that they . may become in
telligent and faithful women, and
of young colored boys that they
may learn trades and become use
ful men and good citizens. The
religious and moral training of the
youth of our race should not be
neglected. The hope of every peo
ple is in adherence to sound social,
logical and ethical principles. The
moral selement in character is of
greater value than wealth or educa
tion, and this must be fostered by
the family and encouraged by the i
Sixth. The failure of the Freed
man's Savings Bank and Trust t
Company is the moral of our time.
It was established to receive the
earnings of persons heretofore held i
in bondage and, the descendants of
such persons. It was established
by the Government and thought to
be solvent. In changing its charac
ter trustees transcended their an- l
thority and thereby made them
selves.liable. The Government, in
appointing special machinery to
close the insolvent institution, vio
lated the United States statutes in
bankruptcy, and should therefore,
reimburse the creditors of the bank.
Seventh. The distinction made
between white and black troops in t
the regular army is un-American, l
unjust and ungrateful. White men
can enter any branch of the service,
while colored men are confined to
the cavalry and. infantry service, I
and in the appointment of civilians
to regulate the army we believe it
the . duty of. the President to con- _
sider the claims of colored men.
This distinction is carried into the
Eighth. It is not our province
to dictate the policy of the Govern
ment or the action of our fellow
citizens in the several States. It
is a matter that their circumstances,
patriotism and needs should shape.
Ninth. As a race struggling and
contending for our political and
civil rights.we are not unmindful of
the efforts of Ireland to gain her
rights, and we extend to our Irish
friends.our profound sympathy and

abolition of the chain-gang convict

in the Union, both North and South,
our race are not allowed to enter

ment in the higher walks of life.
Thlis is uuworthy of our institutions,
and hurtful to the reputation of our
country at hoitpe and abroad.
After adopting the above address, s
the Convention adjourned and the 1
members dispersed to their hiomes.

The subjeel.of this notice was born
in Newberry County, S. C., April 15 h,
1803. The date of' his birth carries
him far back into the annals of his n-a

born, but where he spent all his life
until a fewv year-s after the late war.
Eighty years and four months of life!

was born there were only sixteen States '2
