A HOUSE DIVIDED.
A recent dispatch from Washing
ton to the Philadelphia Press. runs
as follows A large number of
rice planters arrived here to-day
from South Carolina and Georgia
to help defeat the Morrison Tariff
bill. They will urge upon the Rep
resentatives of those States to vote
against the consideration of the
bill, being loud in their protests
against any reduction of tariff
They say that the passage of
the Morrison bill would ruin their
business, and threaten that if the
Morrison bill is not defeated that
they will go over to the Republi
can party, no matter what may be
the effect, socially or otherwise, of
such action. It is a matter of bus
iness with them and not of sen
timent, and they will not, they say,
any longer support a party that will
adopt measares detrimental to their
This may not be strictly true;
but, it cannot be denied that some
important southern industries are
afraid of the Morrison tariff bill.
The democratic rice planters and
sugar producers of the South, as
well as the republican iron men of
Pennsylvania, want protection; and
they will battle against anything
that savors of free-trade or a radi
cal reduction of protective duties.
We do not sympathize with these
protectionists and friends of pro
tection, for we do not think that
local and private industries should
be supported at the expense of the
public. We are in favor of a ta
riff that will bring into the public
treasury just enough money to pay
the expenses of the government;
but not one farthing more. It is
unjust to put high duties and, con
seqMently. high prices upon the
necessaries of life, in order to pro.
tect individual enterprises; and we
should be glad to see the infamy of
protection blotted from our Stat
utes and swept out of existence.
In spite of all this, it seems to
us very foolish to make tariff re
form the leading issue in the com
ing presidential canvass. We do
not believe it possible for the D)em
oeratic party to succeed on any
leading issue on which it is not
p)ractically a unit. On this issue,
Southern congressmen disagree
with Southern congressmen, and
Southerni industries with Southern
industries. The same state of
things exists at the North. How
then can we hope to win a presi
dential election, on the tariff issue?
We have failed when we were
united, anid we might fail now on
any other issue; but is success
possitle when we are fighting in
our own raniks?
We are satisfied that crime is
not increasing in our county, and
we hope that it is not increatsing in
the State. The fact that the num
b2r of convictions at our spring
term of court in 1884 exceeds the
number in 188.3, does not, we think,
prove that crime is increasing. Nor
does the fact that the majority of
the convicts are "educated" ne
groes, that is, able to write their
names, prove that education will
not make the negro a better citi
zen. Most of the young negroes
can sign thei r names, but we have
never yet heard it insisted that the
ability to read and write should
cure all defects of character. We
have not tried sufficiently to as
certain whether education will
make the negro a better citizen.
We are told that he does not im
prove his advantages; by-this we
suppose it is meant that he has not
come tip to expectations. But his
tory proves that we must not
expect too much of the first,
or even the second generation of
freedmen. History also proves that
no race ever improved more in a
given space of time than the ne
groes of the South.
Those who are disappointed that
the negro has not ascended to the
moral and intellectual level of the
white man, and who are astonished
that most of the convicts of the
State are negroes, should remember
that the advantages of the negroes
do not extend over a period of
twenty years. Prior to 1870, his
school facilities were meagre and
he lived was immoral and debasing
in all its tendencie-. The political
training of the negro has been bad
and his scho .l teachers, are, even
We know that the negro might
do better, and we hope he will;
but we must admit that he has
done remarkably well, considering
his surroundings. Six, at least, of
the thirteen negroes convicted at
our last term of court, could not
write their names; we do not know
whether the 6thers could-but this
little learning should not be ex
pected to work miracles.
Mrs. Chapin came to Newberry
last Friday and spent three days
in our town, during which she de
livered three lectures on the subject
of temperance. Her lectures were
excellent in themselves and admir
able in their influence. Seldom
have we seen the people of a town
so thoroughly aroused on any sub.
ject in so short a time. Women
and men are talking temperance,
and we are confident that the efforts
that are now makiag, will bear
fruit. God grant that we may soonl
have prohibitory laws. We are
told that prohibition is not good
philosophy; but facts are better
than philosophy. The world has
tried philosophy nearly two centu
ries, but good people are sick of it.
It may be good philosophy to
teach your children to shn a ra
bid dog; as a fact it is both wiser
and safer to kill the dog as speedi
ly as possible. The whiskey traf
fic is the dog.

EDITOR HERALD : Only a few
minutes ride from Leesburg and
we arrive at Lady Lake, and were
met at the cars by our genial friend,
Mr. Samuel Teague, and are soon
seated in his land Agent's Office.
Lady Lake is a new town of some
two months growth, and from the
stores now built, the new lumber
seen, the ring of carpenter's ham
mers, the buzz of two new saw
mills, the vast number of lots sold,
together with the vim of the -origi
nal owners, will soon make a
town of considerable size.
Friend Samuel Treague proposes
to take us out to Col. S. P. Sligh's,
as he seems to know the wants of
Newberry people, and he furnishes
a turnout of the very best, and on
we go, viewing the many fine lake
fronts, soon to be filled by fine res
idences. We arrive at Sligh's P,
0. kept by Mr. Kiiiny, and here we
are shown a beautiful grove and
nursery of 2 year's growth, showing
what an energetic man can do, this~
-gentleman escorted us to his poul
try yard, where I saw 800 fowls;
how I wished for the editor, as some
of the chicks were large enough to
make a square meal, one hen car
ried as many as 150 chicks. After
leaving this beautiful place we next
arrived at Mrs. Melvin Sligh's, and
there met Mrs. Myrant, of S. C.
Next we saw Mr. Sam'l Teague's
fine grove in the most flourishing
condition, having a beautiful lake
front ; on we passed to the home of
Col. S. P. Sligh's, who is a brother
of Rev. J. A. Sligh, of Newberry,
and are met by our friend, who
was suffering from Neuralgia, but
withal entertained us with the hos
pitality of a true Floridian. Mrs.
Sligh soon greeted us with merry
words, and made us feel quite at
home. Here we met Prof. C. C.
Peck and his kind lady, who will
soon complete their house near by
and begin the culture of the orange.
Col. Sligh has the largest grove
seen in Florida, some 15 acres
graded ycunger, just think of 27
acres in oranges, when tihe fruit
often brings in a return of $10 to
$50 a tree, then tell me there is a
profit in raising cotton ? if so then
how much greater and pleasanter in
oranges. Col. Sligh's mansion is
in proportion to his grove, in fact
the largest and best painted house
we have seen in Florida, some of the
Palatka hotels excepted. Col. Sligh
has refused filty thousand dollars
for his grove; he has some 4.000
acres land besides his grove, and
being from our county originally
can offer rare inducements to New
berrians who may cast their lot in
Florida. The hour for retiring ar
rived, we enjoy a good night's
sleep, and Sunday dawns here as in
Carolina. After a sumptuous break
fast, prepared by the madam as the
very wealthiest ladies do their own
cooking, we sat in an arm chair, in
the parlor and listened to some ex
cellent sacred music by little Mol
lie and brother, apparently 6 to 8
years old, these children are gen
iuses and possess a rare musical
talent. As no preaching is near,
being the 5th Sabbath, Mr. Jeff
Sligh proposed we go to church at
Emerald Isle. and soon we were at
his large wharf in front of his
house, and of his many boats se
lected one, and soon we were on
Lake Griffin, Capt. Jeff at the oars.
After a leasant ride of some 3
miles we landed on the Isles, a fer
tile hammock fitted with beautiful
o ange groves and pretty residences
and kind and hospitable people.
We were soon in church, and beard
W. S. Turner on "Faith," after ser- I
vice we were made acquainted with
the Parson, and invited by him to
dine, which we did, and such a din
ner we- have not seen in lo these
many days, few wedding dinners
equalled it. We met Mrs. and Miss
Furner who entertained us with
Qaptain Jeff announcing he would
soon sail, we b.de adieu to these
kind new made. friends, and glided
safely over the lake and arrived in
due time at Col. Sligh's. Next
morning we had to bid these friends
good-bye, as we could not stay
longer, though they insisted that
we should remain with thiem a
week, but our little widow in New
berry calls us home and soon we
arrived at Lady Lake, and were
met by our good friend as usual
Sainue Teague, and shown around
the town, noticing especially the
large hotel of Col. S. P. Slighs, not
yet completed, which is up on an
elevation, near the depct, will be
finished soon, and fitted ip in mo
dern style. Beautiful orange trees
will extend over the long piazzas
and its yellow fruits and flowers in
endless varieties will lend a charm
to be deck the beautiful walks !
large arm chairs, and all con
veniencies will add to the many com
forts of Hotel de Sligh.
Friend Teague and mnysel f stopped
at the elegant Park Hotel kept by
Mr. C. W. Jenkins., o you see La
dy Lake is a town sure enough. I
hear the train coming, so I had to
tell him good bye, and soon I was
viewing the beautiful scenery of
Lake Weir, and here were shown
the lands of 'Dr. James McIntosh,
and Robt. Leavel, and told of other
Newberrians who had land here.
Soon I landed at Ocala, and found
the prow old city being rebuilt, as
she was almost consumed by fire
during 1883, spending awhile here I
started for Palatka arriving in safe
Now I have said but little of the
ladies, but I can no longer refrain
mentioning that Florida is noted
for its beautiful women, and what
beautiful silks and charming cos
tunes we see in all directions, and
such sweet music, as greets our
ears, almost makes us think that
with this balmy atmosphere we
might stay almost forever, and
never tire of mild Florida. Now
for the lands, they are all kinds
and for any price one wishes, from
10 cents an acre to $125, for unim
proved lands and 10 miles from
rail roads near the stations they are
from $15 to $100 per acre unim
proved; groves, &c., sell for $1,000
and upwards per acre, few or none
to be had as parties prefer to hold
rather tban to sell.
Labor $1,25 per day to $3.50, but
few get less than $1 per day. Flori
da is certainly the place for the
hard working man who can in a
few years be-au independ.;at man.
We now liave beans, in fact they
begin to be most plentiful, also
Irish p)otatoes, squashes, peas, cu
cumubers and watermelons, all these
can be grown to p)erfection here
before many plant them in New
berry. T1he objection to Florida is
the ladies have to work hard, and
the mcen do not hellp them as much
as they should, why I have seen on
ly one man wash clothes for the
family as yet, and the way lhe did
handle the battening stick was fun
for a dozen to look at; he acted as if
he was killing a snake, no dloubt he
was a kind hearted man, to perform
this duty. I have seens but 5 snakes
in all my rambles on the rivers
and lakes, and have not been bit
ten by half dozen mosquitoes as
yet.' As some new rail roads are
now surveyed and will be built in a
short time a fortune can soon be
mrade by purchasing these $125
lands, as they will soon be worth
$10 p)er acre and upward. Possj
bly somie or many of your readers
may tire reading a long letter and
I reluctantly halt. As we leave
the wharf, the string band strike
up '-home sweet home," and by
the time your readers peruse this
letter we will be at our own little
home. As ever,
Kineaid, Noxubec County,
Miss., April 9'th, 1881.
DF.A R HER.ALD.-Since I wro:e be

elothing the bare, hard, crusty forests
with tender verdure and the softest

which the turning of the.soil in prep

imparts after Winter's stern reign.
The green turf is bespangled with

squirrels which supply the table in de

mining out now again after hyberna

they make a delicious stew when sea

his father's plantation usei to prepare

when he caugirt rabbits on Saturdays.
His suggestion was adopted by the
lady of the house and her cook and
all the fam'iily now prefer them in that
way to any other except perhaps ma
king them into a pie with hard boil(-d
eggs sliced into it. The severity of
the .wi:ter following upon the long
drought of last ;-muer which caused
such a failure in the crops and con
equently of forage for cattle caused
great loss in cattle throughout this
country everywhere. Every one lost
more or less, some all, sonie half,
tliers a fourth or less. On this place
the owner and his colored tenants lost
fully half. Capt. Calmes, whose
large stock farm a.joins this. lost
many but not as heavily as others in
proportion to numbers. and the mor
tality now is over with the Oleparture
of fatal march.

Portrait of Enoch Pratt. The commis
ion given to Mr. Albert Guerry some two
months ago for a full-length portrait of
Mr. Enoch Pratt, to be placod in the Enoch
Pratt Free Library, has been completed, and
the work has been on view for several days
past in the stndio- of the artist, No. 6
Franklin street. Mr. Pratt is represented
itanding in an easy attitude, with a grave
attention on his face, as if listening to some
thing of interest. Not only the features,
but the impression of the countenance and
the look of the eye have been exactly
seized No draperiles- or other accessories
draw off attention from the tigure itself. A
background of soft, warm color, skillfully
graduated, gives projectIon to the figure and
gains the effect of air and space. The dress
of black cloth, while really painted and not
blurred over, is still kept subordinate to the
face, on whicb the artist has lavished all his
skiil. In these latter-days a sort of fashion
has been sent by a'rtists of tbe lmaginative
school which treats all subjects In a deco
rative sty le, and which would seem t.o stg
gest that their pi.ctures aim less at present
Ing faithiful resemblances of the objects de
pictedt than at producing pleasing hbaruonuies
of color and gracetnl combInations of lines,
while the perspective aind solidity that would
detach them from the background Is care
fully avoided and a general flatness assidu
ously cultivated. How far this practice may
be sound in imaginative paintIng is a ques
tion for art critics to decide, but there is a;
leaat oL.e branch of the art about which the
lAity may be Judges, and that Is portrait
painting. While in may be readily admitted
that a mere likeness does not constitute a
portrait, it can hardly be denied that the
main oi'ject of a portraIt is to perpetuate the
features and form of its subject; to tell
pleasntly it it may be, but a; all events
faithfully-to those that come after, 'Here,
as far as brush and colors can go, is the
man as lie lived and moved among us." if
this be the true aim of the portraIt-painter,
it is not of'.en that that aim is so succesafta'
y attained as in this portranit of Mr. Pratt.
