the other day, after ages of argument1

is not principle, that is to say, but E
coward ice, that would restrain them. i
It was of one of such men that an Un- f
ele of ours, when drawing up for a v
client, an inoffensive cltizen, a petition E
to court, then in session, to have him v
bound over to keep the peace, made a i
mortal enemy for life, but one who, t
nevertheless, carefully kept out of his t
way, by making his client pray "for
protection, not from the bravery or F
courage of - , but from his un- t
principled and dangerous cowardice."
There is, in short, a large part of I
every generation of mankind, who are 1
influenced to action, not by ideas or I
principles, but by narrow-minded pro- L
vincial or party catch-words and war- t
cries, and by personal whims, crotoh- f
ots and prejudices, and who regard N
an earnest idea, because new to them- 1
solves, or coming from a certain quar- r
ter, as a visionary hobby, or as an un
heard of folly, impracticable in the
extreme. Yet such ideas prevail and I
bear fruit notwithstanding.
We have been struck with these
reflctons, upon reading, that in Jef- i
forson County, Arkansas, at the very t
first meeting of some of its citizens to <
form an immigration society, "two
hundred and thirty.soven bales of cot
ton were immediately subscribed to
wards the objoot.'' Ahom! thought
we, so iLho visionary hobbyism of the
editor of the NEws and hERALD is
spreading. There are hobby-riders i
elsewhere, who believe, as we do, that
the business must commence by "joint
contributions," and who are not de. 1
torred from action by indigent apathy
and povorty-striken indifference and I
despair ; who antually believe in the <
power of money to hire hirelings, and <
to purchase what can be bought.
They have not waited for Newborry,
for example, to crook her finger, that
Fairfield might jump, but have "flung
away their money"independently and i
at once. Ah ! it is a great pity ; the
world is becoming a set of hobby-ri
ders in Arkansas. But there is com
fort in oven the sevcrest dispensations
of Providence. This permission of
evil yonder, is intended perhaps for I
our consolation here. We have com. <
pany at last, though at a great dis
tanco. No longer do we feel ourseves i
a solitary curiosity, like a sparrow i
upon the housetop of Winnsboro, nor I
like a pelican in the wilderness of <
Fairfield. Despite the hasty conclu- I
sion of nur citizens that we can do i
nothing jst ime, the world moves, i
elsewhuere, folly is spreading and it is E
natural for one hobby-rider to re- j
joico, when ho hears of the folly of 1
others. if the expeted lettors and <
news from Newherry, do net develop 1
the fact that hobbyismi has been at
work over there also, as well as in
Arkansas, our joy at sympathy will be
moderated, but cannot be destroyed.

The Virginia lection.
We regard tho triumph of the Con.

about which future parties, with their
antagonisms, for several years to
come, will develop themslvs.
There arc, indeed, no parties now in
Amerioa, the triumph of the Radicals
having for awhile destroye 1 all party
organizations. The issue on which
thay triumphed, the issue of the war
and the characer of reconstruction
has been settled. It Is past. It is
dead. And now the genius of the
Southuern white man for government,
his eminently practical turn of mind,
has come to light once more, in this
Virginia election, in a perfect blame of

In my last article, your typo made

was a sufficionoy of brain and muscle
for agricultural purposes. Now, it
should have read, brawn instead of
brain~-that there was a sufliciency of
brawn and muscle.
EX, in one of his art icles, seems to
think that it is doubtful if the white
oman oan be induced to cultivate the
lands of another in this country as an
hireling; and in this, 1 am inclined to
think ho is correct, and believe,
wherever it is tried, it will result ini
dissatisfaction and disappointment to
all concerned. I here refer to the
employment of an hireling, where the
work performed isi on a cotton planta
tion, and is exacted from January to
That condition of things which ren
ders this necessity for the white man
to become a hireling has not yet been
reached in this country, nor is it de
sirable at this time. But I believe
the time has arrived, and an urgent
necessity exist, to make the effort to
get the immigrant here, either as an
honest punctual paying tenant, or as
an honorable eilicient corpartner, un
til by his industry he has accumulat

Here, Mr. Editor, many may say,
that they neither want the one, nor
will they have the other. Let such
pause for a while and view the present
state of affairs. The way things are
drifting 1 awn inclined to think, un
less a change can ho effected, so as to
correct the false ideas and notions
that are now progressively filling the
heads of those who have, or are the
muscle requirerl to carry on planta

forced upon us, and I am satisfied that
four-fifths of the acres in Fairfield
now under cultivation, are worked
under the partnership system.
Where parties make an agricultural
venture, the one supplying capital and
material and the other muscle and Ia.
her, and egree to share the lesaes and
pronits of thme venture upon an agreed
scale of division, they must be copart

tion arises, if the one (tenantinmg) may,
from the very existing stato of affairs,
be forced upon us, and the other is
already practiced, would it not he
hetter, wiser, to make strenuous ef
forts to fill their places with the white
immigrant, who will be a white citi.
Mr. Editor, I read "Traveler" in the
NEWs of the 0th, and am satisfied
that he has permitted himself to fall
into error, when he asseirts "that the
holder of large tracts of land are un
willing to sell.". To prove his asser
tioh, he'-says that a friend of his tried
to buy threse aeres of eld ' field upon
which to build asmall house, and
the owner asked ent.-iae dars
per acre. le does not ita where
that '-old field" was; perhapa it was
in the corporate limits of the Boro, if
so, seventy-five dollars was not too
much. Locality and the surroundings,
have a good deal to do, in fixing the
value of even "old fields." Three
acres of old field near the growing end
of-the city of New York is now sell.
ing for one thousand dollars per acre,
and a waste lot even now, in Columbia
or Charleston does command a high
prico. And the one hundred acres,
unfenced, uncleared land, alluded to
by "Traveler" may be in or is near
suburbs of Winnsboro; if so, ten dol
lars per acre, is not too high a price
to abk for it. Perhaps the occupation
of the person who tried purobasc,
clay have led him into error. I touch
upon this as it may orente an erro
neous opinion, as to the willingness of
the holders of large tracts of land to
sell. A holder of a large tract of
land may be perfectly willing to sell a
portion of hia land at a saorafice or a
reduced price to an immigrant to in.
duce him to settle here, and thereby
increase the roll of white citizens, but
would he unwilling to soll, except for
u/ ralue, to a person who is well to
do, or who wishes to speculate, and is
already here by fixture and interest.

entire time to the duties of the sane,

he is making his giant weekly, Pone

the La Crosse Domocrat ever was
more than red 4hot, and full to the
brim of laughable humorous articles ;
Saturday night chapters, and those
peculiar editorials, none others can or

bondholders and official corruption.

thrilling associations, and where the bravo
boys of both armits met and fought hand to
hand, where the blood of both friend and
foo was mingled togethor and ran down the
mountain side in rivulets, is a smooth-faced
rock, upon which a poor, wounded soldier
inscribed the following:
"S. T.-1860-X.-Early in the battle I
was wounded, and carried to this spot by
two olever ' Yanks.' They bade me farewoll,
and as they supposed, to die, for I was so
weak from loss of blood that I could but
faintly thank them for their kindness. They
left in my canpteen a part of a bottle of
PLANTATION BITTARS, to which I owe my
life, for it strengthened me, and kept life
within me until help came and m woni I
was dressed. God bless them or their
kindness, and for the PL.ANTATION BITTERs."

A Family Medicine.
The PaIm KIt.Lan is a purely vogetabl
compound; and, while It is a most efficient
remedy for pain, it is a perfectly safe medi
cine, even in the most uniskillful hands. For
Summer Complaint, or any other form
of bowel disease in children or adults, it is
an almost certain cure, and has, without
doubt, been more successful in curing the
various kinds of Cholera than any other
known remedy, or the most skillful physi.
clan. In India, Africa and China, where
this dreadful disease is more or less preva
lent, the Pain Killer Is considered by the
natives, as well as European residents
those climates, a eure remnedy'.
Tuti PAIN K3LLF.R.-We have known the
high character of this medicine, and that It
is used with gre It success and satisfaction
in our very best families. It is the favor
ito medicine of our missionaries In heat'en
lands, where they use it more than all else
together for the diseases that abound in .
those warm climates. It shoul~d be kept in
every house, and be in readIness for aud
