SOUTHERN MADE RIAXOS.
Knabc'i Great Baltimore Manufactory.
A correspondent of thc Savannah Republi?
can, writing from Warrenton, N. C., under
late of September 23, says : f
When I was on a visit to the growlnflflkfend
nourishing city of Baltimore, in Mareil last, I
wrote you relative to the plano factory of
Mt ssi's. Knabe & Co.. which afforded me much
pleasure in going through and examining the
different apartments, and at the same time I in?
formed you that an addition was in contempla?
tion and perhaps would soon be commenceu.
On the 30th of July I was in Baltimore again,
and Mr. William Knabe very kindly invited me
to take another look at his unsurpassed opera?
tions in the manufacture of pianos. I took a
seat in his carriage and was soon in front of
this building, which is not only an ornament,
but an honor to the city of Baltimore and the
entire South; for now we can boast of the larg?
est, most magnificent and best regulated piano
factory in the United States, commenced,
completed and owned by men who are worthy
of our support and patronage, not only on ac?
count of their honesty, industry, enterprise
and energy, but who endeared themselves to
every trite Southern patriot by most liberal
acts of kindness to our unfortunate country?
men during the late war, whenever opportu?
Thc large addition to this factory is just com?
pleted, and the entire building has been re?
modelled for the better arrangement of the
several departments of the work, so that as
the manufacture of an instrument progresses
lt passes regularly from floor to floor and room
to room until it is ready for use. The factory
now has a front of two hundred and ten feet
on Eutaw street and one hundred and llfty-six
feet on West Btreet, and covers, with the lum?
ber houses and yards, an area of nearly two
and a quarter acres.
The whole building is Ave stories high, and
on the roof is a handsome cupola, which over?
looks the entire city, and from which there ls
a magnificent view of Patupsco River and the
beautiful hills and valleys for miles around; lt
ls also well supplied with water, lights and all
the fixtures, comforts and conveniences which
the best skill in the science of modern architec?
ture could devise. By these improvements the
capacity for making fiiauos has been increased
from twenty-five to forty-five per week, giving
employment to about four hundred men of
skill and experience; for they will not employ
any man unless he can produce undoubted evi?
dence of these qualities. The long drying
erocess through which the lumber must pass
efore it ls made is one of the causes of thc
unequalled durability of the full, rich, mellow
tone which characterize the Knabe piano
above all others. I saw one in a private
house, which had been in almost constant use
for thirtoeo years, and vet the tone was lull,
fresh, sweet and mellow, as though lt had Just
received the finishing touch fruin the hands of
the "master musician at the factory.
Knowing that many fathers contemplate
buying pianos for their daughters this winter,
and schools and colleges are sprining up all
over the South and must have instruments for
the use of pupils, and having known thc Knabe
piano for several years, visited the factory anti
examined closely every department, and be?
come satisfied that full and ample Justice is
done to every part Oy the most experienced
workmen. I have written this letter for their
benefit, and trust that every one who wants a
piano will go or send to our own Southern city
of Baltimore, and patronize men who are
polite, worthy, magnanimous and honest.
Another evidence of the superiority of these
pianqs is the fact that Messrs. Knabe A Co.
have received the medal*, premiums and
prizes at every fair where thev exhibited one
of their instruments, whether of the gland,
square or upright kimi. J. L. M.

THE RURAL CAROLINIAN.
Opinions of thc Press.
The press of the entire South, with one
voice, echoes the cordial welcome which THE
NEWS extended to this new recruit In thc army
of progress. For the first time in their history,
the Southern people, essentially agricultural,
possess a literary exponent of their leading
pursuit, worthy of themselves, and of the fore?
most place which they occupy among th>; agri?
cultural populations of the earth. Without
fear or hesitation, tho Rural Carolinian may
throw down the gauntlet to any agricultural
magazine in America, and our people, always
ready to appreciate and acknowledge real
merit, will not be slow to give it a united and
enthusiastic support. We subjoin a few of tlie

Something of thc character of the Rural 1

We do not speak enthusiastically, when we
say that our expectations in regard to it have
been more than realized; and we nothing ex?
aggerate when we say, in addition, that it is
the finest work of the kind ever bet?re pub?
lished in the South. It is printed upon finer
material, the workmanship is in a higher style
of the printing art, whilst the contents are
more various and extended, under the several
classifications, and the embellishments in bet?
ter executiou and more elaborate.
[From the Yorkville Enquirer.]
High as were our expectations ol' what lt
would be, we ure agreeably surprised to see
what it Is. It is, in every respect, fully the
equal o? any agricultural join nal published in
the country, and, in point of typographical ex?
cellence, far superior to most of its rivals. In
sho?*nt ls a magazine of which tlie State muy
justly be proud, and which every progressive

as a South Carolina enterprise, but also as lt
valuable book of reference for himself.

We feel that our native publishers show a
cheering appreciatlcrrrof the situation, in giv?
ing us, an they have done In the "Rural Caro
linion,'' as agricultural magazine superior to
any issued in the Southern country; while to
the Southern farmer and planter it will be far
more valuable than aoy Northern agricultural
publication. The South has needs and wants
of its own. No magazine which looks to Hie
North or We6t for support can adequately re?
present tlie agricultural und mechanical Inter?
ests ol' the South. And the new comer is pre?
pared to meet the existing order of things,
recognizing the necessity ~of modifying or
abolishing old plans and old systems, and of
shapiug our ends according lo the means at
our command. It will, we arc satisfied, be
thoroughly up to the times; and in arrange?
ment, variety of information, typographical
appearance and neatness of illustration, it is
far ahead of aiiy of its competitors. We warm?
ly recommend the new work to our readers,
being confident that they will give it no grudg?

A NEW SCHEME OF PLUNDER.
Me-cling of the Radical Convention
Whiskey Flows like Water-A Sketch
of the Candidates and thc Nominee.
The Georgetown Times give this spicy sketch
of the proceedings of the Radical Nominating
Convention which met on Saturday, the 2d
instant : *
AB we predicted two weeks ago, the small
Radical ring In Georgetown had matters all
their own way in the County Nominating
Convention, held here last Saturday. The
delegates were said to have had a gay and
lively old time of it, and the scenes enacted be?
fore, at and after the ballotting. are represent?
ed to have been decidedly jolly and lively.
Whiskey flowed, freer than water, and the
building dedicated to the Intellectual develop?
ment of the colored youth of thc district ls re?
ported to have assumed, tt many respects, the
appearance of an ill-conducted and disorderly
doggery carrying on business without a li?
cense. Tlie prize to be nm for was the unex?
pired term of Mr. Webb In the Legislature,
and for lt four competitors-all men of color,
varying from almost white to pure black, and
ali residents of the town. They were Thomas
D. McDowell, Edward L. Ralncy, Alexander
GN Baxter and J. H. Bowley, all of whom, ex?
cept Rajney, already hold paying offices. No
freedman's name, either from town or county,
was mentioned in connection with the nomi?
nation. On Saturday morning McDowell
seemed to have the call against the Held, but
by the time the delegates had assembled lt
was apparent that Bowley had the inside
track, and must win unless some grand
counter-movement was made. But if such
movement was made, it was too late and Inef?
fectual, lor, on the first ballot Bowley was
first and the rest nowhere, for he received
seventy-seven votes, and all the rest thirty
votes, which, being more than two-thirds of |
thc votes cast, made him the nominee of the
Our information leads us to believe that J.
H. Bowley, the nominee of Saturday last, is
from one of the Northern or Eastern States,
and that he came to these 'parts some time In
I860 In the capacity of a teacher. Under the
new order of things, he was elected or ap?
pointed County School Commissioner, and has
succeeded in establishing a school In George?
town, of which he is the teacher. The emolu?
ments of lils office, as School Commissioner,
amount to four dollars a day when on duty,
but what Is his Income from keeping the only
school In operation for the education of the
colored youth In the district, we are not suffi?
ciently advised to say. These, with the threat
3f visiting Just and merited chastisement on a
low white man, whom he detected in an act of
treachery to him, about the time the balloting
was to commence, are, so far as we have
leard, the only claims he lias on the county I '
for the honor of being one of Its law-makers.
In this, as In every other action of the few
n Georgetown who assume to oe the Repub?
lican party of the district, the freedmen in town
md country have been insultingly ignored,
yverslaughea, and pronounced incompetent ana
mworthy to hold o?ice, or to occupy any posl
ion of honor, profit or trust, and are to be
milled Into the belief that a stranger who
tomes without a dollar in his carpet-pag into
heir midst has more interest In their welfare,
ind more love for them than men like Edward
j. Rainey and John Lucas, who were born and
?eared with them, and know them, and under
tand their wants. With a cool effrontery and
omplalsance that one cannot but herp to ad
nire, fliese foreign friends of the freedmen tell
hem thal they are now entirely too-ignorant
o Know their wants, and, consequently, un
,ble to represent them; and that pcf?lbly, un
ler their teachings, In some future day the
lalms of the present benighted freedmen may
? considered by those who now assume to be
heir sti]?orlor8.__ -..?IIIIIIIUU uia*.?.?...?..
,?^u*ia Wt and "oP*nly expressed by the In?
dulgent n-eecimen of thc district, at the man?
ier of their treatment, the harp of "Forty
icres " lias been strung to a new tune-the
ouuds of which arc calculated by their deceiv?
es to lull the freedmen into pleasant dreams,
mt of which they are to wake possessors, oc
upants and proprietors of landed estates. Re
ylng on the supposed Ignorance of the freed
ncn from the country, these fellows, who take
are to monopolize all the offices for them
lelves, tell them that If they will but for this
Ime support and elect the candidate of the
League, the taxes triff be raised so high (hat the
ands of (lie white men icill be sold, and the
and agent will be ready to buy them up, and
viii at "once distribute them among the freed
nen. They are assured that the plan is Infi
lltely better than the "forty acre and a
nule " plan ; for, by this process, they would
wt only have the land, but would get clear
vf the white men who might disturb them
In their agricultural o?terations. Having
lad "the promise to the ear,'' so In?
satiably "broken to the hupt? " from March,
1865, to the present time, by erfcry adventur?
er whose business it was to impose upon them,
t ts not strange that the freedmen, particular?
ly those from the county, should have some
misgivings of the fair promises held out to
them, and place no faith in the words of those
who have heretofore systematically deceived
them. Experience has taught the freedmen
these are the cunning devices of adventurers,
who have all along succeeded in monopolizing
all the offices, and thus excluding them from all
participation and enjoyment of them, and that
as long as they listen to them, they will con?
tinue to bc "hewers of wood and drawers of |
water" to a set who, without, office, would be
as destitute of head as they aro of principle.
Having been plundered and kept down by the
plausible but deceptive pretexts and promises
of the Georgetown clique, lt would not sur?
prise us If our friends, the county freedmen,
did not give Mr. Bowley a hard and rough
road to travel before he got to Columbia. We
shall see. w

-Nothing in this world can be more discour?
aging than the detection of a clergyman in the
very act of purloining the silver spoons of a
parishioner. This ls what has Just happened
in Miller County. California. One of the flock
was dying, and the shepherd was sent for to
administer spiritual consolation. Leaning
against a bureau, and all the time praying with
great fervor, he abstracted from the drawer
"two heavy old-fashioned silver spoons," which
he managed to "Imiiettlcoat" witnout being ob?
served. Whether he was caught offering the
implements to his "uncle." or eating porridge
with one of them, the record does not state;
but found out he was, and fallen he probably
ls from his high estate In Miller County.
There Is something uncommonly droll In the
idea of locking un the spoons when you
are expecting a visit from the parish clergy?

from which every noxious element has been ex
