EIGHTEEN CENTS A WEEK
The Daily New-The Casi? System.
When the price of THE DAILY NEWS waa re?
duced to six dollars a year, we resolved to in?
sist noon the payment of subscriptions in ad?
vance. This rule was immediately applied to
our mail subscribers, and at thia time we have
not a subscriber, outside of Charleston, who
bas not paid in advance the price of his sub?
scription. We gave no credit, and the paper
was invariably stopped when the term tor
which payment had been made expired. The
experience of the past year has confirmed our
belief that the cash system is tho only plan
upon which a paper can be conducted with
safety and success, and we have therefore de?
termined to apply that system unifoimly to our
subscribers in Charleston.
On the 15th instant, all papers for which the
subscription price has not been paid will be
stopped without further notice, and from that
date no paper will be delivered after the expi?
ration of the time for which payment has been
In order to accommodate persons who may?
be unprepared to pay the subscription in ad?
vance, we have made arrangements to deliver
THE NEWS within the city limits at fifteen cents
a week, instead of eighteen cents as heretofore,
payment to bs made weekly. This reduction
of the weekly rates will go into effect on the
15th inst. Orders from weekly subscribers will
be received at this office, or at the bookstore
of Mr. C. C. Richter, No. 161 King-street.

COLOMBIA, S. C., December 9.-The little ex?
citement of the election is over. The General
Assembly will now probably push through
such legislation as may be indispensably neces?
sary or pressing, and take a iocess of about
two weeks for the holidays. A resolution to
adjourn from the 22d instant to the 4th of

IN THE HOUSE, the following messages from
the Governor were received:
The Honorable the Speaker of the House of
SIB-In response to a resolution of the House
of Representatives, of tho 7th instant, I have
tho honor to state that, while it is known that
tho judges for the several circuits, with tho ex
cep ion of Hon. D. T. Corbin, since resigned,
took the oath of office, there is no official re?
cord of the dato on which they wcro qualified
in this tlcpartmont. Commissions were issued
to them respectively as follows':
Hon. Zephaniah Platt, Second Circuit, Au?
Hon. James M. Rutland, Fourth Circuit, Au?
Hon. John T. Green, Third Circuit, Septem?
Hou. D. T. Corbin. First Circuit, Soptembcr
Hon. T. 0. P. Vernon, Seventh Circuit, Sep?
tember 18. -
Hon. W. M. Thomas, Sixth Circuit, Septem?
Hon. Lemuel Rooser, Fifth Circuit, Octo?
Hon. James L. Orr, Eighth Circuit, Novem?
No direct information has been receivsd at
this department os to whether tho Judges
have entered upon the discharge of their du?
ties, with the exception ol Judge Platt, of thc
Second Circuit, and Judge Booser, of the Fifth
Circuit, and I have reison to believe that these
are the only circuits in which courts have been
held. No explanation has been received from
or on behalf of the other judges for the delay
or neglect of commencing their official duties.
Tho necessity of holding courts is verv great,
and the delay is highly detrimental to the pub?
lic interests and a grievous wrong to those
awaiting trial. Many of the jails are filled to
overflowing with prisoners, involving a heavy
expense for their subsistence, and jeopardizing
their safekeeping. In several instances they
have been awaiting their trial for u longer
period than would probably have been allotted
to them as a punishment had they boen found
guilty of the offences imputed to them. The
constitution guarantees to every acoused per?
son a speedy and public (rial, and that every
person injured in b's lands, goads, person or
reputation shall have remedy by due course of
law, and justice administered without unne?
1, therefore, earnestly invoke your attention
to the necessity of such legislative lotion as in
yonr opinion the exigency of the caso demands.

OUR AGRICULTURAL COLLEGES.
A Plan for the Institutions to be Organ
i zed in the South.
Tho following extracts are taken from an ad
dress to thc fanners and planters of Eastern
North Carolina, read before tho Agricultural
Convention held at Wilmington, on the 27th
ultimo, by Robort K. Bryan, Esq;, which was
received by the convention, and ordered to be
spread upon the minutes :
The time has com3 when agriculture ia enti?
tled to take rank with the'Sciences. The far?
mer whe cleaves to antiquated notions, regard?
less of that progressive spirit which has in our
day taken hold of all the pursuits of life, will
find himself in the rear of his competitors in
the race for wealth. Ho may attempt to throw
the blame for his scant harvests on that great
scape-goat of poor farmers-the 8eaaons.
If, however, ho be fortunate enough to have
as a neighbor one who keeps pace with the
progress of improvement, he will find, by a
comparison of crops, that the latter has dis?
covered the secret which renders him, to a
groat oxtcnt, independent of tho vicissitudes
of the seasons. And if ho be not hopelessly
joined to tho dead idols of the past, he will
ultimately bo drawn, by the force of example,
into the adoption of improved methods of til?
lage. These methods are baaed upon prin?
ciples discovered by patient and profound
searches after truth, and are confirmed by the
judgment and experience of practical men.
Successive contributions havo enriched tho
science of agriculture, and added clearness and
certainty to its principles, and it now stands
befiro tho world a symmetrical whole worthy
of the study of all wno aro interested in tLc
cultivation of the soil.
There aro scattered throughout our State
numbers of you?g mon who aro anxious to be
educated, but from lack of means cannot bo.
In determining upon itu plan of an agricul?
tural school, spocial conaidcration for the
wants of this largo class should bo had. If a
a portion of tho student's time, say five hours
in each day, should be act apart for farm work,
it would be fouud that sufficient time would bo
left for the study of all necessary branches of
learning. The exercise of the body would pro?
mote physical and mental health, enable the
student to concentrate his attention 0.1 his
studies, and thus to accomplish more in a
given time than he could undor a system of
training where physical exercise ie neglected.
Thus the timo spent in out-door work would
not be lost if we regard only the intellectual
progress of the student. Meantime, by this
system, the constitution will become invigorat?
ed, and much in a pecuniary point of viow
saved. Tho labor of a student diligently per?
formed undor intelligent supeiviaion "would
constitute a fair set off against all charges for
In this way thc principal expenses would be
gotten rid of by the student, and only those
for tuition, books, clothing, &c, would re?
main. Thus tho outlay for ? sound agricultu?
ral education could ba brought within the
means of a numerous class of young men who
are nos- wholly unable to meet the expenses of
an ordinary boarding school. Thus a large
number of intelligent working young farmers
could be annually added to tho producing po?
pulation of ouV State. The direct result of
their labors in increasing our material wealth
would be considerable, whilst their influence in
elevating and improving the system of farm- 1
ing would be incalculable. The elevation and 1
improvement of our agriculture implies in- i
creased production, increased wealth, increased
refinement, and, in a word, increased happi?
Tho labor of a considerable body of students,
giving five hours in each day to larm work,
would suffice fur the cultivation of a large
farm, which should bo attached to such an in- 1
stitution as we are now describing, and the 1
products of such a farm skilfully cultivated
would go towards the support of the proposed
college. To this would bo added the tuition
fees, both together constituting an amount of
resources which would go far towards making
the institution soil-supporting.
The direct benefits likely to arise from such
an institution judiciously located and properly
conducted, would no; be confined to the stu
donts trained there. Farmers would visit it
for the purpose of observing the methods ot
culture pursuod there, and tho operation of
machines and implements of an improved Idiid.
Experiments might here be conducted in au
exact and satisfactory manner, and the results
published for tho benefit of all concerned.
From Buch institutions an influence would
radiate, which would bo folt far and wide in
building up for our country a system of prac?
tical agriculture based on acionco, whose peace?
ful glory would not pale in a comparison with
the moat heroic achievements of tho past.
If tho views herein presented with regard to
tho proper plan for an agricultural college be
correct, it will be apparent that uo combina?
tion of such a plan with the old system of col?
legiate education is pracl'cable. Tuc latter is
well adapted to the wanta of ttie wealthy
classes, but tho plan we proposo is adapted to
tho wants of tho great mass of our intelligent
agricultural population. We do not under?
value tho old systom as a moans of training
youth for tho loamed professions, and fer that
purpose wo desire to see institutions conduct?
ed on that plan flourishing in our midst. But
it is much more important that a farmer should
lmow how to cure a sick horse, or to pr?vaut
the escape of ammonia from his manure heap,
than how 11 reader Sophocles into English or
explain the mysteries of the parabola. Tho
condition of tho great mass ef our people de?
manda a system of education which will bear
tangible fruit. It demands that their children
shall bo instructed in the ways and means by
which bodily comfort may be secured. Thia
is the most pro3sing want." When woalth flows
into our ompty coffers and leiauro is afforded
us. wo can then givo attention to the claims of
polite literature and that hig.ier education
which is altogether admirable, but which is at
present, and likely to continuo for some time,
a luxury beyond tlio roach of ninety-nine
hundredths of our population.
A Chapter ou Planchette.
A "Reformed Planchettist" makes thc follow?
ing revelations in Harper's Magazine :
I have little moro to Bay. and surely nothing
further to confess. I have truthfully given my
experience, and if it be of use to any of my
fellows, that kuowledgo is guerdon sufficient.
A reformed Flanc?cttist, I eat batter, drink
better, and slcop batter than when pursuing
my evil practicea. My conscience is more at
rest, and I no longer have troubled dreams.
Let this encourage those who are still under
the dominion of tho destroyer to emancipate
It is useless to tell mo that there is anything
in Planchette, or that by its aid every man may
bucomo his own medium; I've been there.
When you can pat a terrapin on the back and
get him to respond in Coptic with his tail,
'twill be time to pereuade me that a block of
wood can be "charged" sufficiently to write
sentences. Mine was charged (it stands
charged against me, I believe, tn this day,)
but it would only write when I moved it, and
then it wrote precisely what I dictated. That
persons write "unconsciously" I do not be?
lieve. As well toll mo that a man might pick
pockets without knowing it. Nor am I at all
prepared to believe the assertions of those
who declare that "they do not move the
board." I know what operators will do in such
cases; I know tho distortion, the disregard of
truth, which association with this immoral
I have seen charming young ladies, whoso
word I would take on anything else in life (even
if they protested they were uot engagod), wiio
would not fib if you aaked them if tneir curls
were false, or if tho red cf their lips was natu?
ral, sit up with both hands on Planchette
fortified in falsehood by thc contact-and lie
like lawyers. Bring mc any two professors of
the art-young ladies, for men aro not to bo
believed under ar.y circumstances-not too far
gone to bo sensible to aotno mural compunc?
tion, who will put one hand on Plauchetto and
tho other on tho Bible-CBtabliahing a sort of
gaiv.inic connection betwoen thu negative and
positive poles ot truth, so to speak- ; nd swear
(as Eda says tho custom of resorting to au
oath in exticme cases has introduced i to thc
laxer sou cf minda thc notion of two kinds ot
truth) that they do not write tue messages
they promulgate, and I will discuss whothcr
they do or not toriously. Until then I do not
recant ene single expression, but stand firm
by these confessions'.
MARRIAGE WITH A Si9TEn-xs-L\\v.-lhose

?ut urgent cases will arise when the ecclesias?

the motives for such dispensations are-the
preventing of greater evils, the protection or

il though cases of this kind are comparatively

regularity and harmony to the action of these impor?

which thc human family are subject originate in in?

of innumerable ailments as distressing as itself, tho
Bitters are the only article proved by experience to
be a universal and unfailing remedy. But although
it was as a remedy io.- dyspepsia and biliousness
that they nrst obtainer) prestige twenty years ago, it
is now well understood, both by Ute public and tho
medical profession, that their curative properties
take a far wider range. In nervous complaints,
spasmodic affections, fever and ague, and every vari?
ety of general and local dobilitv, their effect is most
salutary; and asa means of preparing tbe system to
resist damp, cold, poisonous elcmeuts m the water

agent at present kuown can bc justly compared with
