The tax returns show.that in this
County there are 700 square 'miles,

vast amount only 89,218 acres, about
one fifth ale included in th'e arable

dows and pastures. The remaining
281,744 acres are in forests, 'repre.
senting dead capital. Tho 'whole
amount of real estato is nudh de

Not so much from any real deteriora

Our Iast Hopo-Immigration.
I have read with great gratification
your timely and well-teipered arti
olo on immigration in Thursday's
NEWS, and desire herewith to add
a few reflections upon the same sub
ject. I regard, Mr. Editor. the im
portation 'of foreign white labor into
this State as our last and only hope
for political regeneration. The ques
tion with us is simply fi'el"yn imlmi
gration or nativc; emigration. That is
to say, we mut cithor increaso our
white l-opulation, or abandon the
placo of 6ur nativity altogether.
Negro aggression is becoining bolder
and bolder every year, and negro
domination is fast becoming an unt
favorable reality. From the present
dutlook the-political cdndition of our
State is likely to grow worse as time
rolls on, until in a few years more it
will be such that no -liberty-lovinng
white man can tolerate it. Does it
1ot behodvo us, then, to'do some.
thiirg'to avert the tcrriblo 'fate that
hangs over us ? Every good citizen
will admit that something ought to be
done. Why then delay the matterl
No farmor has a right to complain of
high taxes and hard times generally
when he does not make an effort to
remove the cause o' his tronbles. No
man de.erves any comuiscration
for his perplexities and grievanes

Friend of my girlhood, thy journey Is en

Oh ! drear the shadows, and dark was the

But. lie who Called thee was strong LoV de
Htis love did thy pathway most ovectly il

Youtli's roses were lIortning and bright

But perished forever that swveCt spriug
The fr!iend of niy girlhood li.3 faded and
My heart is so grieved I fain would re.
Sweet spirit, coie back from l'oyond the
dark boirine ;
Thy death atid illy gloonm together appull
I sigh to reniernher thy septlchre lone,
Ah i sad wis (lie hour when thy babes
Of a 'mnother's fondness and cherishilg
And drer.y, so dreary, ho botne thai
For thero by the hearthstone is thy vacant
Bult Chrisl so loved theo Ile longed to oi

And thou art not sluinberin lo'v ia the
