THE DAILY NEWS.
BY WILL. WALLACE HABXEY.
On the road, tho lonely road.
Under the cold ahite moon ;
Under the rugged trees he strode.
He whistled and shifted his heavy load
Whistled a foolish tune.
There was a step timed with his own,
A figure that stooped and bowed.
A cold white blade that flashed and shone.
Uko a splinter of daylight downward thrown.
And the moon went behind a cloud.
But the moon came out so broad and good,
The barn fowl wote and crowed.
Then roughed his feathers in drowsy mood,
And Uie brown owl called to his mate in tho wood
That a dead man lay on the road.
ST JLXOTHXB FELLOW.
On the street the lonely stroet,
Under the gas-light's glare ;
Under the locust trees to sleep.
Ho curled himself all up in a heap
And snored away dull care.
There was a step that tin: ed with his own
A figure he wore on his hat
A blue frock coat-buttons that shone
Like a splinter ot daylight downward thrown,
A hickory club and all that.
The morning came. At the Police Court
The Judge had taken bis seat ;
The City Attorney made his report,
And each bummer called to his mate in sport
That a drunk man lay on the street.
Small Farms for Cotton Culture.
[From the New York Evening Post.J
A gentleman who bafi lately lived in Brazil,
and is familiar with the manner in which cot?
ton is raised in that country, writes ns:
"In reading the article in tho Evening Poet,
of the 18th ultimo, on 'Small Farms for Cotton
Culture,' I was struck with the extract from
the Charleston Mercnry, which you quote.
The Mercnry says: 'Will the Evening Post be
pleased to tell" UB by what system of labor
cotton is cultivated in Brazil, in Egvpt and in
'.A long residence in the principal cotton
port of Brazil enables me to answer the ques?
tion as regards that empire, if not to the sat?
isfaction of the Mercury, at least to its en?
lightenment, aa had the writer of the article
been acquainted with the facts, he would have
been silent as to the system ol'Brazil, which
is of such a character as to make it a very
etroiig argument against tho position advanced
by bim, that cotton cannot be profitably raised [
by small farmers.
" First let me givo you the exact figures of
the receipts at the port of Pcrnambuco, with
which place I am best acquainted, premising
that the ratio of inciease has, I believe, been
carried out pretty generally throughout tue
empire. In 1860 the receipts at Pernamluco
were 21,461 bales tof only 160pounds average);
in 1861, 20,530 ; then came tue rebellion, but,
as you are aware, it took a long time to es?
tablish a cotton famine and consequent high
prices; still an impetus to cotton culture was
given, and in 1862,35,211 bales wore received ;
m 1863, 47,044. In this year and tbe next the
very highest prices were reached, and in 1864
the receipts were 113,697 ; in 1865,161,419, and
in 1866, 200 994 bales, being an increase of ten?
fold for the fifth year.
"The stimulus for this extraordinary increase
is self-evident; now for the means. You
should know that during these years no slaves
were imported into the empire, nor was tliore
any immigration, if we except individual emi?
grants from Portugal and the Azores ; nor was
there any deportation of slaves from the sea?
board, where the sugar is grown, to the inte?
rior lands, where the cotton culturo prevails.
Large plantations of cotton are quite unknown,
and the insignificant quantity raised previous
to the rebellion was grown principally by small
planters, who bad very few slaves, say from
one to ten each, and who were themselves la?
"but on the stimulus of the high price, the
free country people, each of whom owns, hires
or 'equate' on a little patch of land, upon which
he raises bis mandioca to make the almost
universal food, farinha,' and his coin or othor
vegetables, went into cotton planting, in which
the whole family were able to assist; and thero
were soon about as many 'cotton planters' m
the province as previously there had been bales
raised. The slow and difficult native precess
of gaining had to be abandoned, and American
band gins were introduced and scattered al?
most broadcast over the country. Then the
countryman sold his little lot of cotton m the
seed to a country dealer, if too small to make
it worth while buying a gin; or had it ginned
and baled at a neighbor's press and took it
himself to town to sell. Frequently have I
seen such a countryman with his horse load of
a bale of cotton on one side, and a basket of
chickens (with perhaps a big stone as a make?
weight) or a bag of corn on the other, and I
have conversed with a great many who had
raised, som 3 half a bale, some one or two
bales, as they had the land to spare and the
family to assist in their labors.
"I am satisfied that two-thirds of the crops
of late years have been raised by free labor,
and a large proportion by men who were with?
out the means to hire labor, and who farmed
their own patches of land.
"This class of free men in Brazil are almost
without exception either of pure negro blood
or more or less mixed, freedmen themselves
and the descendants ol freedmen ; puro whites
are very rare amongst thom. These are to be
contended against in Brazil, besides tho na?
tural and inevitable disinclination to labor of
the lower classes of free people in a slave coun?
try, the proverbial laziness of tho na?
tives of the tropics, where the merest
pittance and the smallest conceivable amount
of labor gives them food, and for clothing a
few yaros of cotton cloth is all thoy require.
If with such material the stimulus of money
getting alone enables a country to increase the
culture of cotton tenfold in five years, what
shall prevent the South, with a far better, more
vigorous laboring population, who must labor
or die, from not only becoming again the great
cotton producer of the world, but being able
to finnish cotton to the woild to the exclusion
of all others.
"In Brazil, again, the bulk of the cotton is
brought Rroat distances to market or tho soa
Sort, and the only means of transport arc
ones, ?ich horse carrying two bale j over bad
roads, through woods and brush, wbero the
waste is very gr jat indeed. A road into a cot?
ton district is literally lined with cotton, and
the cost of transport is frequently over six
cents gold per pound, and little enough you
will say when von know it is a journey of two
or three weeks from some points. Yet with ali
these difficulties to contend against, the in?
crease in cotton culture bas been as I have stat?
ed, and this entirely on a system of 'email farms
for cotton culture.' Your article hits the nail
ou the head, and gives the only sensible solu?
tion to the question as to the future of the
freed laborers at the South, aud I think the
Brazil system a strong additional argument in
We hope some of the Southern journals, like
the Charleston Mercury, which have been per?
suading their i eaders that cotton can be profi?
table grown only on large plantations, and by
men of considerable c ipital, will print tho lot?
ter of our correspondent, in which it is so
clearly shown that under far less favorable
circumstances than those of the people in the
Southern States, the Brazilian freedmen an J
small farmers have grown cotton to a very
great exteut upou small holdings, and with
only the labor of their families.
Butler and Spoons.
AN INCIDENT OF THE DICKENS' READINGS LN
A correspondent of tho Cincinnati Commer?
cial writes :
An incident worth montioning occurred in
Washington on the second night of the Dick?
ens readings. Ben Buller entered after the
performance had commenced, and walked
down the centre aisle while Dickens was de?
scribing one of the most interesting scenes in
his selections from David Copperfield. Per
haps Benjamin waa unavoidably detained, or
perhaps he wished to make his appearance at
a time when he could attract that amount of
attention which he thinks is du- to his emi?
nent abilities and great public services. Thero
are those who adopt this as one of the wavs of
keeping before the people; some of them
never enter the church tnl the congregation is
well seated, and then walk straight,to tho Trout
pew. It General Butler hadn't his miud's eye
on thia idea on the occas ion referred to, his
motives were misunderstood by many, that's
ali. Well, the hero of Bermuda walked down
the aisle the observed of all observers, and
took his seat in a very select and advantageous
part of the hall. The first selection was soon
concluded, and Mr.Dickeus retired as is his wont
for ten minutes of rest and refreshment. The
rustle ami bustle consequent upou a relaxation
of attontiou followed. There were whisperings
among the older folks, and flutings among the
vounger, in tho midst of which up rose Butler
from h is seat, either to observe or to bo observ?
ed, hard to tell which, though 1 incline to tho lat?
ter belief. There was no mistaking that bald
head, or that strabismic eye. It was Benja?
min F. Butler, and nobody else. The inter?
misi?n, Uko all things on this earth, had its
end, Diokons reappeared and tbe readings
were resumed. This time it was a selection
from Pickwick-the famous Bob Sawyer party
scene. It was very funny, as we all know, and
tho laughing was, ?t times, immoderate. There
waa a point, however, at which the laugh be?
came very much like a vulgar roar, and it
wasn't the funniest part of tho reading by any
means. Mr. Dickens felt a Utile confused, I
thougut, lor a man of his nice perceptions
knows there is such a thing possible as a laugh
at tLie expendo of an actor, which is always
more vivid than that provoked by tho play.
Dickens evidently thought ho hud bhindercd.
But he hadn't. He had sinu.lv read tho follow?
ing colloquy between Hopkins and Noddy-and
thc audiouc. ind just seen Butler, and every
one know he was present :
"I request that you will favor me with your
"I'll do nothing of tho kind, sir."
"Why not, sir?"
"Because you will stick it up over your
chimney-pioe?, and delude your visitors into
tho fabe belief that a gentleman has been to
see you, sir."
"Sir, a friend of mino shall wait on you in
"Sir, I am very much obliged to you for thc
caution, and will leave panicular directions
with the servant to tock up ?he spoons."
The laugh, Mr. Dickens, which so exceeded
all bounds as to perplex vou, was duo solely to
a connection in tho popular mind between (reli?
erai Butler and spoons !
Trial of the Kev. Stephen H. Tyng. Jr.
The trial ol tho Rev. Stephen H. Tyng, Jr.,
was resumi d to-day tn St. Peter's Church, m
Kev. Dr. Tiffany, of New Brunswick, N. J.,
was the tirsl witness called for the defence.
Ho said that by invi.ation he auppUed the pul?
pit of St. James' Methodist Church, of Now
Brunswick, on more than ono Sunday of July,
1867; the title to tho property of this church ip
not vested in tho conference, as required by
tho discipline of tho Methodist Church, but is
vested in a board of trustees, two of whom are
not members of any church, and the president
of tho board is a parishioner of the church
presided over by Rev. Stephen H. Tyng, Jr., in
New York; witness resides in New York in the
winter months, and in New Brunswick in the
summer: witness was present at St. James'
Church on the Sunday Mr. Tyng officiated
there; ho attended at the personal solicitation
of members of hi9 'Wu church, thoro was no
invitation extended by tho authorities of the
On tho cross-examination tho witness testi?
fied tbat he was ordained deacon of tho Metho?
dist Church in March, 1848, anti in March,
1850, was ordained elder; witness carno from
Chicago to preach temporarily in St. James'
Church; Mr. Tyng informed the witness on the
Sunday morning referred to that he had received
a lotter from Rev. Mr. Stubbs, a minister of
the Episcopal Churches in New Brunswick, ob?
jecting to his preaching in a Methodist Church.
Rev. Dr. Muhlen berg was the next witness.
He stated that lie had been fifty years a mem?
ber of the Episcopal Church; he* had known
Episcopal Ministers to officiate in non-Episco?
pal Churches, aud tho witness had dene so
himself without ecclesiastical censure; ho know
of many instances where express permission to
do so was not sought.
Rev. Dr. Newton tostifiod that ho had boen
an Episcopal minister for thirty years, most of
tbo time in Philadelphia; in Pennsylvania
ministers aro accustomed to preach wherever
thero is an opening for such service, no man
contradicting; this usage h a-j prevailed to a
considerable ex'cut; witness has officiated
several times iu Burlington, N. J., in a Presby?
terian church, and once ata funeral service at
yt. Mary's Church; witness never asked con?
sent tu so officiate; it was the impression of thc
witness that a pastor liad a right to officiate
wherever called upon by his own parishioners;
at stated services ho considered that an Epis?
copal clergyman was bound to use thc iormal
service, but on special occasions ho could use
his own judgment.
On the cross-examination the witness testi?
fied that ho had not seen the letter of Mr. Jay
Cooke to this board, ur thc sermon referred to
in that lotter; ho was n.n tho author of the
declaration which appeared in thu Independent
of December ll, 1807, but ho was ono of the
signors of it.-Ntw York Post, lilli.
