The linaucial panic which has shaken
the commercial North has, we bcliovc,
been even more disastrous here at tho
South. At tho North the sufferers
hare been mostly bankers, brokers and
speculators generally in other peoples
money. Hero, the fall in the pr>03 of
Cotton has been felt iu tho poukct of
every furnier?in every baisitiES* and in
every profesnion. We have had no
exciting telegrams, .no startling editor
ials, upon the subject ot our losses, but
the misfortunohas comestriaght lomo to
every man. woman and ohild. At tho
North few haro been damaged save
those who were engaged in occupations
which are not required for the well
being of the community?which aro, in
fact, prejudicial to ? that well being.
With us, Agriculture has suffered?the
,:most useful, the most general, and the
most noble employment of man." And
yet our misfortune has been a direct
result of the Northern panic. Our
healthy and natural business has suffer
ed beoause tho unhealthy and unnatural
occupation of a few Northern specula
tors has come te a disastrous yet logical
Let tho South learn a lesson from all
this. Let her be independent of all
classes at the North save the consumers.
Let her raise her own bread and inc.it,
as sho easily can, even if she makes a
million less bales of Cotton per annum
in consequence?for she will be paid as
much fot three million bales as for four
millions. Then let her manufacture at
least one half of her C>tton,and she
need ask no odds of tho world or of any
part of it. Aud if she must havo
"ptnies," sho may have thorn of her
own raising and undor her own control.
Let us havo everything "home made"?

by the small size of the present issue ot

Sai,ks?An Imi'oktan r Decision ?
The Holly Springs (Miss.) Reporter of
the 21st, gives the following synopsis of
a decision delivered by Judge It. A.
Hill, of the Federal Court, in a case
involving tho validity uf tax titles
sequin d in May, 1 S03.
Tho Judge holds that the State
Government of Mississippi from l.Snl to
1.803 (during tho war) was revolution
ary, illegal aud unconstitutional. That
any law pnsscd by tho State (jovertimeut
during that period, imposing a tax on
the people for the support of the Stato
Government, was in aid of the rebellion,
and necessarily unconstitutional and
That all sales for taxes by tho Govern
ment of Mississippi in 1803 and
1861, during the period of the late civil
war, aro nidi and void. Under his
dopision,/nil tax-sale* of land betwosn
1801 and JS0? are nullities, and will bo
set aside. It unsettles tho titles of
purchasers at tux sales to thousands, if
not millioPA, of acres of land in Missis
sippi. The decision is equally appli

M. Desire, * who is undoubtedly the
finest billiard player on the continent of
Burppa, has becu suurnering at Ostoud,
and his performances at the billiard
tuble have attracted no little attention
there. He is a large, iat man, over
fiftj y ears of age, with a somewhat bald
head, and eyes framed in ourious liues,
as if every muscle and ligament abuut
them had boen for years inado te do
duty in giving him the greatest exact
ness of vision. I!e plays cijunlly well
with the left hand as with the right,
and the precision with which he strikes
a ball from above, indicates that ho is a
master of the cue. Among various
fancy strokes which he executes ii to
shoot all three balls in tmcce-Viou into
the mouth of a basket, just large enough
to receive a ball?the basket being hold
six or seven inches above the cloth.
Another is to place a hat iu the mi Idle
of the table with a ball beside it, tho
third bull being piuced against tho ctish
in from which he plays, at his left hand;
he than sends his bidl against that
bebide tho hat, so as to make it go
completely around the hat and come all
the way back to strike that which is at
his left hand against the cushion.
When ?thc three bulls arc in a row?al
most touching each other?the player's
ball being at one end of the series mos t
persons would dismiss tho idea of secur
ing a carom as simply impossible. But
it is a situation in which M. Desire
uevcr fails to score. lie hits his ball
so as to make it ruu quite urouud the
ball next to it.?without touching it?
and tlwn curve back again aud strike
the two bulls.

17,200 earn from 50 centimes (10 cents)

day. The shoemakers, carpenters,
bricklayers, stone nnsoas and painters
are among the 211.000 who recoive
from 05 cents to SI 20 per day. It is
not to be wondered that these me:hanics
come to tho United State* whenever
they can raise money enough jto pay
their passage. Our mechanics at henie,
by reatiiciing their own sons in the
