Wednesday Morning, October 8.1887
"Impedimenta" ml the Sooth.
We were talking with some friends,
tho other day, concerning tho merits
ol a now loom, which professes to
weave all kinda of fabrics, from a
silk dress to a rag carpet, and was not
very much surprised when one of
them said, "It'snil a humbug," "Yan?
kee invention," &o. Wo have so
long heard those phrases used against
every new and useful invention
?ought to be introduced at the South,
that it ocoasioned bnt little surprise
. when we heard them repeated in the
conversation alluded to. We have
been on plantations, where we saw
the looms in general use-rough,
hard-working machines, entirely
ignorant of any higher grade cf car?
penter's tools than a jack-plane; and
yet we ventnre to say, that if one of
these smooth-working, perfect ma?
chines had been brought into tba
weaving room, Aunts Dinah and
Boee would have tamed up their
noses and jumped off their rude,
unpinned board, and left indignantly.
In Gen. Sheridan's former Military
District, where he plied his high vo?
cation and privilege of removing
civil officers, from the highest to the
lowest, the invariable pretext was
that they were "impediments" to
reconstruction. The New Orleans
Picayune, in an amusing article,
takes np the subject of "impedi?
ments," and maintains that the labor?
saving machines which are beginning
to be introduced from the North are
regarded by the freedmen "as cop?
per-heads with steel arms, and as
natural enemies of the colored man."
AB a consequence, they will have
nothing to do with them. The Pica?
yune says that the freed people see in
these devices only the effort of the
"rebel" to make himself or herself
independent of African muscle, and
are determined, so long as they re?
main on the place, these dreaded
simplifiers and economizers of force
shall not be employed. The Pica?
yune relates some amusing instances
of this inbred antipathy to the new-1
fangled machines, one or two of
which we quote. Speaking of a friend
in the country, it sajs:
"He provided himself with a full
set of the most modern and best
approved agricultural implements,
and having selected out of a hundred
the ten best, most willing and trusty
bauds, for a full, hearty and fair trial
of emancipated labor, he went cheer?
fully to work to arrange for making
cotton and corn. But, to his dismay,
his favorite and picked negroes, who
believe him to be both 'good and
smart,' were, nevertheless, utterly
opposed to using these new-fangled
instruments. They knew how to
plough with the hull tongue and the
turning plow *. in the black?
smith shop; th. were handy with
the hoe; they pr -red to work thus.
When he urged tnem to try the new
implements, insisting upon it, they
promptly declared that they would
not; it was a new scheme to avoid
paying the black man, and they
would have none of it. What was
their surprise the next day, to see
their young and slenderly built mas?
ter with a pair of mules hitched to
Satterly's gang plow, tearing over
the field and turning over a sod they
had never been able to reach before,
and to find by night that he had dis?
pensed with the labor of several of
them. But, during the entire year,
he has never been able to get one of
them to touch one of these imple?
ments, though he had often demon?
strated their use and usefulness."
Speaking of a friend in the c y,
the Picayune says:
"He procured early this year a
washing machino. He was satisfied
of its vast saving of time and its im?
proving tho cleanliness and saving
the wear of his family's Unen ; so was
his wife. But the servant was not
so well pleased. Many criticisms
were made upon it, and uncommon
awkwardness displayed in using it.
Finally, the servant found herself too
delicate in health to do the washing.
Another was hired to do it, and
'Bridget,' for such was the name
given the machine, was exhibited to
her, and its use practically demon?
strated. She, however, also looked
on with suspicion and dislike. 'Dat
was no way to do. White folks gettin'
smart! Bimc-by dey'll have no use
for niggers! Do old way's de bess.
If I'm ?wino to do de washing, I's
gwine to do it de ole way!' So she
went on the old way. The mistress
of the house had many cares, and
was in somewhat impaired health;
but having got strong and hearty
again of late, she concluded to see
that Bridget was no longer neglected.
So, tho other day, she had it brought
out just as thoy were getting ready
for the washing. 'What for?' 'To
do the washing. It must bo done
-- ?.. ? ? . ?
with th? machine.' But Aunt Palay
ahrunk from the contamination.
Support oopper-heads and rebels?
Yee; but never allow this dispenser
with the trade of, washerwoman to
touch her hands. Sbe orept away.
The lady waited long, and then
looked for her. She was not to be
soon. But this did not balk the ii rm
resolve. The fire was Btirred, the
Boiled linen was put in tho machine,
the boiling ands poured over, and the
maohine put to work. Just as she
was about to put them through the
wringor, Aunt Patsy, who had been
bid away, peeping at the process so
successfully carried on, re-appeared
on the scene and prayed to be allow?
ed to hang them Up.
AU that is wanting to remove these
* 'impediments" to practical recon?
struction, under our new regime of
labor, is tho determination evinced
in the two cases named above. It
will not do to fold our hands and
quietly submit to the whims anti pre?
judices of our former slovos. They
have, under the former system, kept
the white master or mistress com?
pletely at their mercy, and rendered
them entirely dependent upon their
servants for all the household and
plantation labor required. Now is a
good opportunity for the white house?
keepers and farmers to release them?
selves from tliis thraldom. If they
have to dispenee with colored labor
altogether, it would be much better
to send to the North for such addi?
tional aid as is indispensable for mode?
rate farming, and for a housekeeper
to do her own washing, until tho
colored laborers and servauts learn
to know that all labor-saving machines
are as much for their benefit as for
that of their employers. With such
determination, made and carried out
generally, the reconstruction of the
South would be certain, early and
complete, although politically it
should go irretrievably to tho dogs.
At a meeting of the "Ladies* So?
ciety in aid of the Suffering and Desti?
tute Poor of the Soutb," it was de?
termined to extend the time of the
grand entertainment and distribution
of awards of the Society, to Satur?
day, December 28, 1867. Tho books
of registration of tickets will rosi
Trvjiiiy close on that date, and tho
Committee of Associate Gentlemen
of Honorary Members will commence
the distribution of awards.

H?w YORK FAISU FASHIONS.-The]
Herald, of Friday, says:
The gcneru? fall openings of the
New York and Brooklyn milliners
took place yesterday. There are but
few changes in fall fashions this sea?
son. The principle that ' 'revolutions
never go backward" is carried out in
dresses. The reigu of orinoline'is
over, and its dominions, like those of
the Pope, are considerably reduced
in size. Bonnets, after being driven
forward on the head by the advanc?
ing chignon until there was danger of j
those fearfully and wonderfully made ]
head pieces falling over the nose,
have thrown up a rampart as a bar?
rier against the encroaching chignon.
This rampart the modistes call a dia?
dem. Tue crowns are somewhat
larger than tho microscopic affairs of
the summer. The fall cloaks will be
adorned with trimmings or figures
that look like hieroglyphics, propo?
sitions in Euclid and Japanese official
documenta. Altogether, the fall
styles aro very original and striking,
and the ladies will have plenty of oc?
cupation to select the most becoming
French Pomaden of all kinds.

JACK AND THE BEAN STALK.-This
fairy tale of the good old times has
heretofore been regarded a myth; but
we confess that our faith as to its
truthfulness was considerably shaken,
yesterday, on receiving from Colonel
John T. Sloan a monster specimen of
the vegetable kingdom, grown in his
garden, in this city-a stalk of okra,
thirteen feet high, and nine inches in
circumference-on which are several
pods and blossoms of proportionate
size. That an axe was necessary to
remove this monstrosity, it is needless
to say. The Colonel informs us that
this stalk is ono of several which
grew in a spot near where the family
washing is done, and the soap-suds
are thrown on the okra bed; and he
attributes their extraordinary size to
this fact. Wo shall keep this stalk
for Dan. Castello, and suggest to him
tho propriety of placing it upright
in the ring, and while one of his best
riders is traveling around the circle,
heels up, to request him to remove
one of tho pods with his toes. Tho
feat would certainly be a new one.
Tho stalk is on exhibition at the
Phoenix office. The seed was pur?
chased from Dr. Miot.
