Our Agrlcultnral l,nbor.
This is a ?abject of the utmost im?
portance at this time to the whole
South. For tho crop that has nov?
to bo planted, it is idle to expect
labor from abroad, and the chief re?
liance must be placed upon the freed?
men. A cotemporary, speaking of
the great complaint he hears about
the negroes being indisposed to work,
and that agricultural operations aro
interfered with and hindered by the
demoralization which has seized
them, says that a lack of capital has
more to do with this than our people
are usually willing to admit.
The plain truth of the matter is, at
the present time and at all future
times, that labor must be equitably
poid for and paid promptly. Labor
from any quarter cannot bo obtained
-that is, labor whick is reliable-on
any other terms. The only agricul?
tural labor we have now to depend
upon is that of the late slaves, and
we believe that oan be brought to our
aid effectually and ,'profitably, if the
employers can rid themselves of old
habits and associations, and treat
their laborers humanely and kindly,
forgetting that they have ever been
slaves, and that they have a right to
an equivalent for their labor, and
paid in such a way that they can live
and support their families. By at?
tending to this suggestion, and put?
ting it into practice, the colored peo?
ple of the Southern States will be?
come not merely valuable producers,
but good and useful citizens.
Tho Wilmington Dispatch says
and wo agrco with it-that wo have
talked so much about tho laziness
and worthlessness of tho negroes,
that we have made them lazier and
more worthless than they would
have otherwise been. It is human
nature for mon to adopt the practices
that slander has attributed to them,
and we seo this in every-day lifo.
Let all our laud-holders, as well as all
others who require labor, iuspire tho
negro with tho belief that ho is uso
ful and serviceable, and give him a
proper appreciation of h's obliga?
tions, and encourage him to assume
and discharge his duties like a man,
and ho can bo persuaded to do what
is right and creditable.
These views should be thoughtfully
considered just now. Tho largest
land-owner is, at this moment, far
from being independent in tho matter
to which we refer. Kindness, good
pay promptly paid, and a little flat?
tery- "blarney," as a Fenian would
call it-will do much moro in making
negro labor valuable than the con?
stant abuse of the raco as lazy and
thriftless. Our peoplohavo a difficult
problem to solvo, and wo should uso
the most pleasant agencies and tho
most effectual iustrumentali ties to ac?
complish tho end in viow. It is for
these reasons that wc givo our brief
suggestions on tho labor question.
Mr. L. W. Jerome's private theatre,
on Twenty-sixth street, New York, is
occupied just now by thc ladies of
thc Southern Relief Association, who
are giving a series of amateur enter?
tainments for tho benefit of its fund.
About $G,O0? have already been ob?
tained from this source. This theatre
was originally finished for the uso of
thc Sanitary Commission.
It was announced at a Fenian meet?

four-fifths of thoso who havo been

gress has provided for that in the

j Commissioner Rollins has issued to
lae assessors quite a number of in?
structions relating to tbo amended
internal rovenue law, which is now
in operation. Tho following instruc?
tions, referring particularly to tho
assessment of the income tax, will
interest numerous tax-payers:
PHYSICIANS.-Whore physicians are
obliged to keep a horse for the trans?
action of business, they may deduct
so muoh of tho expense so incurred
as is fairly referable to the business
Expenses for medical attendanco,
store bills, &c, are not proper sub?
jects for deduotion. Expenses for
repairs of implements, tools, ?fcc,
used in business may bo deducted.
BENT OP HOMESTEAD.-Rent of a
homestead actually paid may bo de?
ducted, but the rental value of pro?
perty owned by the tax-payer is not
a subjeot of deduction; but whero
tho tax-payer rents a furnished house,
that portion of the rent paid in con?
sideration of the uso of the furniture
should not be allowed as a deduction.
ROOM RENT.-Any person claiming
a deduction on account of the ex?
pense for room rent must satisfy the
assessor that the room oj: rooms oc?
cupied by him constitute his homo,
and that he has no residenoe else?
where, and this being shown, ho may
be allowed to deduct what he actually
pays for rent of such rooms, but
nothing can be allowed for rent of
furniture or care of rooms. When
rent is included and deducted as an
expenso of business, it must not be
again deducted as rent, nor should
a person hiring a house and sub?
letting a portion of it bo allowed to
deduct more than the excess of his
payments over his receipts.
IMPORTANT TO CLERGYMEN.-Mar?
riage fees, gifts from members of a
congregation to their pastor, ?fcc, are
taxable as income when tho gift or
donations aro in the nature of com?
pensation for services rendered,
whether in accordance with an under?
standing to that effect at the time oi
settlement, or with an annual (fustom.
FOREIGNERS MUST PAY INCOME TAX.
Citizens of the United States residing
abroad aro subject to tax upon thoii
entire incomes from all sources what?
ever, and tho samo is true of foreign?
ers residing in this country.
Tho law provides that a like tax
shall bo levied, collected, and paie
upon wtho gains, profits and income
of every business, trado or professioi
carried on in tho United States, b]
persons residiug without tho Unitei
States and not citizens thereof.

A Subject for Harper's Weekly.
Of all the political newspapers at
the North, Harper's 'Weekly is doing
more to keep up the unhappy strife
between the two sections than any
other. Professing to be "a journal
of civilization," it hos presented to
its readers, in its woad cuts, lying
representations of acts of barbarism
alleged to have been committed at
the South, which its pious proprie?
tors knew to be false, when their
artists brought in their abominable
caricatures. Now, hero is a subject
for tho pencil of the artist who leads
in this branch of illustration. It is
tdken from the New York Herald:
On Prince streot, New York, there
is an asylum for orphans and desti?
tute children, under tho care of tho
Sisters of Charity, where girls aro
maintained from childhood till they
are able to fulfil a situation in life
and "do for themselves." One little
girl, named Mary Ann Farrell, thir?
teen years old, was taken from this
house, on the 9th of May last, by a
Mr. Vanderbilt, residing in Plensant
ville, about six miles from Hacken?
sack, to perform general house-work.
Some months after, the new home
began to prove uncomfortable for the
girl, and she received very bad treat?
ment, which she could not disclose to
any one, being locked up, if she de?
sired to go out. Tho poor creature
was at times stripped naked, tied up
by the wrists, and in this manner, abo
states positively, was lashed with a
wjrip by Mr. Vanderbilt till her ten?
der flesh was completely mangled.
Horrible as this may seem, the tor?
ments to which she was subjected
afterwards were moro acute. Mrs.
Vanderbilt, who had been a calm
spectator of the bloody process, ap?
plied, according to the girl's state?
ment, what she understood to be n
pickle dipped in salt to the bleeding
wounds, which inflicted the most in?
tenso agony. Last Wednesday, thc
girl expected to be placed, as usual,
on tho rack; and watching an oppor?
tunity, providentially vouchsafed tc
ker, she made her escape, and tool
refuge for tho night under the shade
of some trees, whero she was picket
up in a prostrate and fainting condi
tion. She then related the horribh
details of the cruelties inflicted 01
her, which so aroused tho indignatioi
of thc hearers that a resolution wa
formed to proceed to Vanderbilt'
and lynch him forthwith, "unshrive<
and uushrouded," but tho executioi
of tho plan was frustrated by th
Roman Catholic pastor of Hacken
sack, who threatened to denounce th
individuals connected with it. Th
girl's statement is borne out to th
letter by tho revolting appearance sh
presented. Her head is covered wit
small lumps, her teeth displaced, th
white of the eyes hardly discernible
the face swollen and deformed, th
lips split, aud the remainder of bc
body one mass of scare. Her undei
clothing, which had not been change
for a long time, was thoroughly sati
rated with blood and purulent mn
ter. She is now under medical trea
mont, but her condition is likely to I
hopeless. She was handscmie an
interesting, and bore au excellei
character in the asylum, where si
had been for eight years. Vanderbi
and his wife wero arrested by ord
of Justice Breckel, and the case wi
come before the grand jury, atHac
ensaek, this morning.

THE COLORED VOTE.-The Charles?
ton correspondent of tho New York
It is very clear to any one who has
watched the political onrront in this
quarter of late, that tho colored men
will not vote as a unit. There is quite
a largo number of them who wore free
before the war, and who hold them?
selves partially aloof from the rest.
Theso, to a man, announce their de?
termination to stand by tho old whito
residents in whatever action they
may take. On the other hand, there
is a more numerous party, composed
chiefly of idlers from the plantations,
who havo found their way into the
city, whero they livo from hand to
mouth, who aro convinced that their
release from daily toil was accom?
plished hy tho radical party of tho
North, and who may, therefore, be
relied upon to vote and act with the
men who represent and aro endorsed
by that party. But tho most nume?
rous class of all is made up of sensi?
ble freedmen, who are now earning a
living hy honest I.tbor, who aro intel?
ligent enough to think for themselves,
and to act as they believe their own
interests dictate. Perhaps if they
followed their own impulses merely,
they might imitate tho example of
their phiftleas and improvident breth?
ren from the country, and give their
support to tho radical candidates.
But it must be borno in mind that
theso men derive their subsistence
almost entirely from white employ?
ers, and they will take heed how
they put tl uir livelihood in jeopardy,
for the sake of what, to them, is now
a mere political abstraction. In view
of these facts, I find that the shrowd
est observers here are of opinion that
either a majority of tho blacks will
be found supporting the whites at
thc polls, or that if this should not
be tho case, the freedmen's vote will
bo divided so as to become a matter
of little comparative importance. If
this be true in Charleston and along
the sea-coast, it is even more so in
the interior, where the freedmen aro
less exposed to the influence of poli- I
tical agitators. The gatherings of
negroes that have lately taken place,
to listen to harangues from orators,
wh'te and black, were rather tamo
affairs, having been gotten up in the
interest of a few would-be lenders of
the colored population.
TUE CHARLESTON NEGROES.-The
New York Times says:
Peace is not to bo preserved be?
tween the blacks und whites in the
Southern States without a strenuous
effort on the part of Northern incen?
diaries to prevent it. Both races aro
now upon a footing of equality as to
civil und political rights, and all tho
evidence wo get tends to show that
the Southern people are accepting
this chango and conforming their
laws and usages to it with prompt?
ness and in good faith. Tho laws of
Charleston, S. C., do not yet recog?
nize the right of negroes to ride in
the cars; and a few days since, a party
of excited negroes, who are proved to
have been half tipsy, attempted by
violence to seat themselves in the
cars, and failing in this, they made
an attack upon them. The military
interfered and speedily restored
order. Tho Tribune, in commenting
on the matter, remarks that "the
negroes in Charleston have intelli?
gence enough to take hold of any
good opportunity of convoying a
I broad insinuation as to their rights
and demands," and add.", by way of
vindicating their riotous proceedings,
that "viewing tho proportion of
blacks to whites in Charleston, the
recent demonstration was au exceed
iugly natural one." Inasmuch as tho
negroes now have votes, would it not
bo as well for them to chango tho
law, and thus secure their right to
ride? Or would not this peaceable
process answer tho purpose?
CANADIAN CONFEDERATION.-A spe?
cial cable despatch to the Montreal
Gazette, dated March 20, states that
"tho Queen has sanctioned both bills
for tho confederation of British North
America." Thc Gazette says:
"Both bills are, therefore, laws.
From this time these colonies start
upon a new era, and it is ono which
will determino their destiny. United
and connected by rail, they will build
up a great Northern nation. Discon?
nected, like a bundle of sticks, tho
probability is that they would, in
time, have been, one by one, absorb?
ed in tho seething political confusion
to the South of us."

WHAT SOUTH CAROLINA WILL Do. -
A Columbia correspondent of the
Now York Times writes as follows:
I have no doubt tho registration of
voters will be universal, and the
voting for members of convention
will be done in the strict letter and
spirit of the law. I know of no pro?
minent mau of any influence or posi?
tion whatever in South Carolina who
advises a course different from that
which I am stating; aud I behove if
any such mau were to come forward,
advising any other course, he would
not be sustained by auy community
in the State-neither by white nor
black, by mountaineer nor by the
low-countryman, by the educated nor
by the ignorant, by tho poor nor
by-there is no other class now, for
all are poor. Everybody is for peaco
and order, and everybody despairs of
getting these in any other way than
through a support of tho law of the
FROMLIREIUA.-The Golconda, the
"vessel which, it will bo remembered,
took a number of emigrants from
this city, to Liberia, has arrived in
Baltimore, making her p .ssago from
Monrovia in the short space of forty
days. The Sun, noticing her ar?
rival, says :
Tho general news by the Golconda
is unimportant. Trado was not very
brisk on the coast, as tho oil season
had not commenced. The people
were generally thriving, especially
the farmers. Tho emigrants by .the
Golconda, from Charleston, were
very much pleased with the appear
ance of the country, and have writ^p%
encouragingly to their friends. Pre?
sident Warner writes to Dr. Hall that
he had just returned from a survey
of tho "old fields" through which
they are desirous of having a canal
cut, connecting the Mesurado and
Junk Rivers. If this is effected, it
will bring Montserado and Grand
Bassa Counties very near each other
inland. Tho distance across the "old
field" is throe and a quarter miles.
President Warner writes that "there
aro yet along our coast some disturb?
ances among the natives, affecting
very injuriously our oil trade. A
gun-boat would effectually quell this,
if wo had one."
The Golconda is expected to bail
from this port about tho 20th instant
for Liberia, via Charleston, S. C.
She is an elegant ship of 1,000 tons,
purchased in Boston, to take the
place of tho Mary Caroline Stevens,
which was sold during the late war,
in consequence of tho trade with
Liberia being entirely stopped. The
former ship was built out of the fund
donated by tho late Mr. Stevens, of
tho Eastern Shore of Maryland, in
his will, and it is understood that
measures are being taken to have the
Golconda's namo changed to that of
Mary Caroline Stevens.
