A GAIID FROM CATT. 13 nor LES.
ANDERSON, S. ?., August 15, 1882.
Mn. EDITOR: I have noticed in the
Reform Signal of tho 10th instant^ that I
h M ve been suggested by ono' who signs
himself *<A Grccnbuckcr" as a candidato
for Governor of tho State. Tho nomina
tion hos been mado in terms fur uturo oom?
pltmectaiy to myself than I liavO cvfcr
deserved, end 1 am persuaded that the
writer of the article in question, was gov
erned rather by his kindly personal feelings
for mc thon by considerations ufjfcctiug the
fitness or propriety of thc nomination. ?
oin, however, very grateful to him for tho
honor ho hus doue mo, but I da not kuuw
that I was ever moro surprised than when
thc paper containing tho uomiuatiou was
brought to my attention.
it is to bc presumed that when persona
arc nominated for olllco, it ?3 because they
aro not only qualified for tho disohargo of
the duties thereof, tut because they repre
sent tho principles of the party nominating
them. Now, 1 am not at nil in accord with
the principles of the Grccnbuok party so
far as I have been able to gather th?ui
from their various platforms of principlesv
'J'liuy nrnnmm.tn nrohihii. ?lin !*J..?inn..i
franks from issuing bills designed to ciro it
lute us moucy, and to make thom banks of
discount nod deposit. That all bills de*
signed to circulate as money, shall be issued
by tb'! general government, and in au
amount sufficient for tho full employment
of labor, tho equitable distribution of tho
products of tho country, and tho require
ments of business, fixing a mini tn um
amount aoooidtug to population, and other
wise regulating its volume, BO os to give as
near os may be about 850 00 per capita
for business purposes.
To do this it will bc necessary, bs they
stato, to issue in addition to tho paper
money DOW in circulation, tho enormous
sum of 31,300,000,000, und it is proposed
that tho greenbacks BO to bo issued, rd.nil
bo a legal tender in tho puytnent of all

cunt feature of the Greenback policy isalhat
they denounce the forced resumption of
Now, gold and silver money has been
adopted by all civilizod countries on ao
count of tho useful qualities it possesses as
a medium of exchange, and it liss an in
trinsic value according to tho amount of
tho pure metal it contains, but it is only a
commodity, and is subject to all tho il net ti
tions of other oom (nudities according to its
scarcity or abundance.
On tho contrary, paper money possessos
no intrinsic value, but when it?is convert
ible immediately on demand into gold or
silver, then it will bo at pur, because he
who receives it docs so with tho confidence
that on demand ho cou realize its nomi
nal value in tho pteoious metals whioh will
ut all times bo received in effecting thc ex?
changes of the country. Its value consists
in ita convertibility. There must bo a
certain ratio between tho paper money of
every country, in order to secut o a safe and
roliublo medium of exchange
If tho paper money which tho Cireon
backers proposo shall bo issued by thc
government is to be in proportion to popu
lation without referenco to its oonvertibi'ity
into coin, and whioh is to bo lnfcfrod from
their opposition to tho resumption of tho
specie payments, then it could never obtain
any other circulation than that whioh is en
forced by law, whioh is contrary to (Ito
principles of trado, and the doctrines taught
by oil political economists.
I bavo said this much by Way of show
ing that I am tot a Greonbacker, or willi
auy tendenoics in that dircotion, os my
nomination might scorn to imply. Hut
there is another consideration of weight
with mo why tho doctrines of that party
should not bo agitated at this time.
I think tho groat question beforo us ?8,
how are wc to preserve our civilization and
rights of propel ty from tho suprcmaoy of
an inferior raoo? It is otto of tho grandest
problems ever submitted to any pco*
plo for their consideration. That a race
possessed of property and ialolligen?o, bc
causo it happens to bo in tho minority,
should bo subjected to tho supromaey of an
inferior raoo possessed of neither, is s a IM
vcrsi'vo of Republics it institutions, anti rho
best interest of sooicty. That both i?Ht'?
must livo together is a tittitu) arid pAHiSt??
necessity, and that they shotfldf ud io* ut
Harmony,, is to thc irWorasJ ol i**t9.
I know of DO solution of the problem
other than that of granting to tbe colored
raeo a}l tho rights bo moy bo entitled to.
But at tho eamo timo it is for his, as wojl
os our own interest, that wo should main,
tain our own Rupromaoy.
But tbe great difficulty in tho way of
harmony ia, that tho Republican party is
determined, if possible, to scouro his voto
for members of Congress, oed Presidential
electors at least, and to enablo thom to do
so, they ore forover fauniug tho fires of
dis ord, nod appealing to bis prejudices of
ruce, color, cud previous ooudition to sccuro
his fidelity to tho party. Thoy do not dc
siro harmony betwecu tho raocs or that
intelligence shall havo its duo weight io
adjusting tho difficulties with tho difficulties
with which wo havo to contend. It is to
their interest to keep the races as wido
apart as possible. And wheo tho whito
rape, feeling that tho great duty bofore
thom is tho preservation of their civilization
ond thcroforo aot togothor os ono man, tho
ltepublioou porty cries aloud against tho
Solid South. Wo oannot afford to bo
otherwise when thu issuo involves suoh im
portant consequences to ourselves. Thcro
foro, it is that I depreciate tho agitation of
tho Greenback doctriocB, bccauEO any divis
ion of tho white race is precisely what is
desired by tho Republican party. I am o
Democrat and bolong to a Democratic club,
aud "Grecnbackcr" is therefore tnistukcen
when ho says that he never WOB a member
of any political organisation.
1 om not a*Grccnbnokcr ond I know of
no consideration which could induce mc tc
sacrifice my convictions of right aud duty
by becoming a candidato of a porty whose
principles 1 oould not represent even if 1
was assured of on election.
"Grecnbackcr" was right when ho said I
W?B not a seeker of office. Sumo of my

desire on my part to enter thc canvass, ll
they shall sec proper to elect me, I sholl

Trespassing on tho Farm*
Tho general rules in regard to trespassing
on another's lauds aro pretty well under
stood in the community, but on ono point
there ia sometimes on erroneous impression.
I. to ?f??.. '??--? ?* - ' ' V
crosses your lund f-. r twenty ye?is he here?
by nhvayi) acquires a light to continue.the
practice, but this is far from being univer
sally true Tho very foundation of oo
quiriug such a right-a prescriptive righi
as it is called-is that tho crossing must
have been adversely to tho land owner, con
trary to his wishes, or at lcust without hit
permission, expressed or implied, aud un
der a claim of local right to do so, whcthci
tho farmer is willing or not. If, therefore, tlx
person crossing docs so with tho portnissiot
or by tho mero indulgence of tho lam
owner, nnd not under any claim of right
tt is wholly immaterial how long tho cus
tom hus continued. Forty years' travel b;
tho consent of tho owner would not giv<
any right to pass after ho has forbidden ti
do so. And to avoid any niisnpprclicnsioi
in such oascB, it is wiser for tiio farmer t
put up notices forbidding it, as wo oftei
seo dono. And this not only mokes i
clour thon thenceforward tho intruder is
trcspassor, but by n recent low in th is Stat
ho is also made liable to a fine of 820 (8
in Muine) for willfully dossing or cnterin
upon any garden or orchard, mowing land
or other improved land, between thc fin
doy of December (St. 1870, o, 181).
I By this law the wilful trespassing o
such lands during tho summer and u
! mouths is made a crime, and any constubl
or other offioer may arrest thc offender o
tho spot and tako him before tho prop?
tribunal tor trial and scntcnoc. But ns l
bli other seasons of tho year, or as to an
other kinds of lands, s?ch a trespass is onl
a civil trespass, not a crime, ond tho onl
legol remedy is by an notion for daraagt
dono, which moy be very uns-itisfuctory.
If, however, ft mud's object in comiti
into your premises is to steal your frui
cranberries, or other crops, that itself is
crime, although he docs not occoomplii
his purpose, and you may put him out 1
force, ofter notice to leave, using no un
necessary violence But you cannot hiv
fully Bet spring guns, man traps or otb
instruments which may do him gricvo
bodily liartn, without giving notioo of sut
bidden dangers (4 Ping., G28; 37 Io?
613). Tho old 80I100I books in corly da
hod a picture of a boy stealing fruit in t
boughs of an apple tree, with a farm
picking up stones, and a maxim that
words and grass did not answer ho mig
throw stones; but if you should happen
put out tho boy's eye it might go hard wi
you, fur you havo not a right to kill cv
you neighbors hens while scratching
your melons or cucumbers, Tho custt
to do so and toss tho fowl over tho fem
may afford nomo satisfaction to tho go
doner, but it may moko him liable to p
tho full value of tho nuisance, although
had repeatedly wained their owner to kc
thom at homo or tako thoconscquenocs (
Conn.,- ?? 107 Moss., 400). Wliotl
this rdlo opplics to an old oat which
afror one's ohickens I don't know, bul
mean to try it tho first chance I have
Ono of tho most annoying forms
trespass' to tho farmer is that of hunting r
1'inhing. Many persons soom to supp

thwi?fjuito ^Pielt.y 115)
all ordinary streuuis and ponds tho right to
tho person owning tho adjoining laud. If
tho stream is navigable, that is, if tho tide
ebbs and flows tho publio havo a right to
boat up and down, and to ful? from their
boats, but not to go on shore to do it. And
by a very early luw in Massachusetts, if a
form contains a "great pond"-i. c., a pond
containing over tcu acres-tho publio havo
a right of fishing and rowing ibero, "and
may poss and repass ou foot through uny
mon's property for that end, so they tres?
poss not on any man's corn or meadow."
Tho recent luws authorizing Tish Com
missioners to lease largo ponds to private
parties moy, of cours?, modify tho former
rights of tho publio therein.
As to salt water fishing tho law Is some
what peculiar, for although tho owner of
tho upland ordinorily owns tho luud dowo
to low water mark, us beforo stated, yet any
othor may go ibero and dig olams or oilier
shell fish, if ho can do so by water, und
without orossing tho upland in going pr
returning (8 Cush., 317; 7 Cray,-HO).
Tho Legisluturo moy sometimes a bridgy or
modify this right, but tho ordinary rulo 13
us above stated.
Egypt in tho Light of Prophocy.
Tho Rev. Dr. V. S. Do I?ass, who was
for two years United States Consul in
Turkey, uud who is well acquainted with
Egypt, lectured lust Suudny night in thc
Central Methodist Church, Brooklyn, 10 1) ,
of which ho is pastor, ou "Egypt in thc
Light of Prophcoy," tubing up thc religious
clement in the Egyptian question. Ho
took tho view that thc recent troubles in
Egypt arc of religious origin. Ile said
that no nativo Egyptian has filled thc
throne iu thc lust tweuty four centuries
showing that thc socptro of power bas de
parted from Wgypt. Ho alluded to thu
degradation ol' tho class known os fallahcen,
or tillers of thc soil, who aro taxed ?8 un
acre for cultivating their own lund. There
aro 5,000,000 ocres of good land in Egypt
and 4,000,000 tillers, out of a total popula
ted of fwc million. Tho present disturb
ance is nothing but civil war-a rebellion
against tho Sultan and tho Khedive. Arabi
Pasha is a restless ambitious Arab. He
has founded a national party, and is trying
to im?talo Cromwell and Garibaldi, and
wants to drivo out ull foreigners. There is
nothing in Egypt to build un independent
government on. lt would bo liko thc nc
'grocs of tba South trying tc form a govern
ment of their own. Dr. Do Hags pro
a religious wat- might break out that would
spread over Asia, Afriou nud Europe, for
Arabi is in leuguo with the new prophet,
Scnousi, and also with thc Sliercof of
Mecca, tho spiritual head of the Moham
medans In conclusion ho said: "One
thing is certain, if this contest goos on
tho Ottoman Empire fulls, thc Turk will
bo driven out of Europe, tho Cross bc
planted again on tho Mosque of St. Sophia,
constitutional government established, and
40,000,000 of our race emancipated from
Agriculture a Nocossity.
What tho foundation is to a building,
agriculture is to ull other kinds of business.
In tho Qrst place, though there oro locali
ties in which tho natural productions of
tho earth would sullico to sustain thc lifo
of man, with tho fruits of hunting and
fishing, it would reduco him to an unnatural
condition-to ono repulsive to his high
.s ate of civilization. His naturo would
soon revolt at ibo idea of subsisting upon
these produots, which in their natural con
dition aro unpalatable und yet so much
improved by cultivation; but in order to
I accomplish which, agriculture becomes a
I necessary occupation.
Again, it is very certain thot mony of
tho industries of tho land depend upon thc
production of tho fanner. The wheat that
keeps tho mill in operation, tho wool that
kecpa tho woolen factory and tho cotton
that keeps tho cotton and thread factories,
the bilk that keeps the silk factory, the
leather that keeps thc tannery nod shoe
factory, tho lu ai ber that keeps tho mechan
ics and wooden factories ut work; oil ure
products of tho farm, or come from tho
farmer. And so, too, the necessaries of
ibo farmer furnish employment in thc
manufacturo of various implements and
machines required in his business. Hence,
agriculture becomes a necessary oooupation.
Still again, where there uro so many and
divers professions and oooupalions that cm
ploy so largo a number ol' hands, who,
wlicu so employed, aro unable to produco
from tho soil the nooosstiries of lifo, another
portion must bo employed in tilling the
soil, or olso in a short timo starvation and
famino would provail. So again agriculture
becomes a necessary oooupation.
Hut according to tho gcnorolly received
definition, tho tilling of tho soil in all its
forms, such ns tho productions of crops,
tho raising and improvement of slock for
tho dairy, and other purposes, is denomi
nated agriculture; therefore no other con
clusion oao. bo arrived ot, than that agri
culture is a necessary occupation, and as
suoh should bo propcr'y rospooted, and
reooivo a duo share of attention and regard,
from other professions and occupations, for
according tn present indications but lbw
years will elapse ero the power of tho agri
culturist will bo felt from ono end of tho
land to tho other and will veccivo the full

MT. VERNON AS IT 18 TO-UAV-TIIK OLL
MANSION AND ITS CUHIOSITIK3.
All tho off ?irs of Mt. Vernon aro attended
to by ladies, writos u correspondent: Tho
pilco paid fur tho plantation in 18(10
was $200,000, not a largo sum, considering
tho valuo of thc placo und ita accessibility
to Washington, und not only has every cent
of tho indebtedness been paid, hut it ia
moro than self-supporting. Every visitor
is charged a dollar for entering tho ground-?,
which, uousidoriug tho many thousand
visitors annually, is in itself a handsome
income Generally a viilt to Mt. Vernon
ia looked upon very much as a visit to ono's
great aunt which has more of duty (hun
pleasure, but, without being either au anti-,
quartan or a genealogist, thero is un ex
tremo interest, unlike that attaching to a
museum full of General Washington's old
clothes, inventing thc place. So far has it
been restored to its original condition thai
tho whole home life of General Washington
and his beautiful, shrewish wife is revealed.
Tho house itself is kept in beautiful repair
and every chair mid table, book and
picture is put with conscientious regard iu
tho exact placo it occupied during tho
lifetime of thc general. As one enters thc
hall, with its broad open stairwi.y (tho
people in those times had a royal disic-gaid
for space, and did not mind capacious
halls und innumerable stairs) tho first ob?
joel to bo observed is u glass case hang
ing up, holding a great iron key--tao key
to tho bastin:-sent to Washington, by
Lafayette. Over tho door of the state
dining room is a brass bunn i full glass,
laid on its wondon porch by tho hands
of General Washington himself, and
reverently allowed to remain there ever
since. No ono has lou ohed it, exempt lo
dust it, for ninety-seven years. Thc state
dining room cent lins tho celebrated pur,
trait of Hom brandt I?.?ale ol' ?' Washington
on horseback,and tho equally celebrated
by (Jillicit Stuart, 1 believe, of tho "Court
of Washington,11 in which thc General
and Mme. Martha stand on a dias, while
the floger ol" the continental army and the
beauty pf Philadelphia clutter around them,
lu this room is a vury olo^uut antique mar
ble mantel which was sent to Washington,
but captured by Harbin y pirates. When
they found out for whom it was intended
they put it on n sailing vessel und sout it
back to Geucrul Washington with their
M?ivOw>?,'q?.s..i>rt: ?WV U'tt..iu.ils vicissi?
down thc middle. In another litllo room
called Nellie Curtis*' silting room, is tho
harpsichord; it is an immense machine, as
largo as a modern grand piano, and thc
most iutcrobtiug thing to study in tho world,
lt has throe banks of kevs like au organ
und is set like a box upon its frame. Tho
sounds that como from this ancient and
wheezy .instrument would havo frightened
Jesse James into convulsions. Besides
this extraordinary contrivance, thc room is
full of beautiful old mirrors and cushions
und all tho brio a-bruo that the young
ladies of a hundred years ago fancied.
There aro two bouUtlful chair?, thc p ile
blue covers of which wero embroidered by
the fingera of pour Nellie herself] and in
tho grounds is a beautiful rosebush, now
almost a rose tree, called Nellie Curtiss'
ruso bush, where il is said, she received her
fi ts t oller, and any young woman who
walks around it six limos eau coax sn offer
from any man she fancies. Thc grass
around tho magia bush, it is hardly nc30S
sury to say, is entirely worn away. Well,
when ono goes up stairs, there is a perfect
labyrinth of old-fashioned rooms. As on
instance of the taste and pains which the
ludios have lavished upon Mr. Vernon is
this: Thc rag carpet sewed and woven uno
der Mme. Maltha's eyes, had, of course,
worn out in tho sixty years that elapsed
from her death to tho timo tho place ounio
into their jossesion; hut such scraps of
tlicIII that remained wore obtained and sent
to the Turkish looms, where Turkish car
puts of tho samo pit torn were made. Thc
General's room is, liko himself, cold,
stately and formal, and in a, press are pre
served innumerable things labeled "G.
Washington," in tho handwriting of tho
father of his country. Upstairs, a regular
little hole in lh:-wall, is tho room of Mino.
Martha choso for hers uftor tho General's
death, tho only room from which sho
could seo thc hideous trick tomb nf her
lord. Among her last requests was to bo
turned toward tho window where she could
seo tho mausoleum. Thon thora is tho
chamber in which thu (louerai died-tho
very four-poster on which he died and
patchwork quilt that covered him during
Iiis Inst sickness.
If heaven bo thc world to whioh wo

if wc do not love and cherish tho Spirit of

A recent canvass shows that Georgia has
no fewer than forty-two counties whero
tho prohibitionists claim to bc in majority.
Thc spread of tho prohibitory movement
at tho South during tho past few 5cnrs
hos been striking. When thc project was
stnrtod in Now England to put under ban
tho manufacturo and salo of intoxicating
liquors, it was considered a Ytinkeo device
not likely to thrive elsewhere. Yet it
now finds as hearty supporl in Texas and

would ship it to Cairo or somo other con.'

St. Jacob's Oil, would moot it and tako
