Tiio principi?" upon T?tlich the tax
upon cottomhns boen repealed, bas
been upon the name plan adopted by
the false friend, who, while embrac?
ing you aud. calling you "brother,"
taXs'S thc opportunity to stab you
under the fifth rib. The repeal of
tho tax on cotton was asked for, be?
cause-the planting interest has lost
ito influence .ia the markets of the
world, and must labor earnestly to
build up the cotton trade once more,
against ? competition auch as it never
before encountered. Under this
state of affairs, is was thought judi?
cious to repeat the tax on cotton in
?avor ol American industry. But
the effort has been thwarted by the
obstinacy of the Senate, which in?
sists, asa consideration for the re
peal of the duty, that foreign cotton
shall be allowed to come into the
country free of customs duty. Hav?
ing done something to benefit the
planter, by removing the tax, the oup
of happiness is filled with gall by the
insertion of a clause to the effect
that a rival product shall be relieved
of even the revenue liability, by ad?
mission to onr ports duty free. By
jost as much as the amount of the
customs duty npon foreign cotton,
would untaxed American cotton have
been benefited if the duty had re?
mained. By the new arrangement,
the home produot is actually forced
to continue the struggle for suprem?
acy, under circumstances nearly os
disadvantageous as existed before the
repeal of the tax It is duo to the
House to say that it resisted this
wrong to the utmost, but in the Se?
nate, (so the Philadelphia Inquirer
declares,) the advocates of certain
manufacturers of bagging in Califor?
nia, who want to obtain Mexican
cotton cheaper than heretofore, al?
though with the customs duty paid,
they have managed to build np a
business, insisted upon admitting
foreign oottou duty free. This inte?
rest interfered to prevent the adop?
tion of the bill repealing the internal
revenue tax, unless the customs duty
were also repealed, and the House
very unwillingly acceded to the ne?
cessity, boping to obtain the end de?
sired hereafter, in a proper tariff bill.
Taking the whole matter into consi?
deration, there ia very little with
which planters can console them?
selves. They have been treated
harshly, and although their section
of the country was ut one time hot
for free trade, it can probably be seen
by this time that protection for Ame?
rican industry is a right and a duty
incumbent upon the Government.
Tl? Hi-construct iou Convention.
TWENTY-FIRST AND TWENTY-SECOND
CHAHLEHTON, February 10.-Yes?
terday, the Convention was occupied
in discussing several sections of the
Bill of Rights. To-day, J. M. Rut?
land, of Fairfield, made a joport of
the Legislative Committee on an
ordinance allowing a homestead of j
100 acres of land tn ouch head of a
family. The Commit too report that
they have agreed to incorporate the
substance in a section of the legisla?
tive part of the Constitution. Also,
a report on a resolution requiring
that the soveral Districts of tho State
hereafter shall be known and deno?
minated os "Counties." The Com?
mittee report that they have incorpo?
rated the Hub? tan no in a section of
the legislative part of tho Constitu?
tion. They also report os impracti?
cable the scheme proponed aa?hqriz'
ing the State to lHsne bonds to thc
amount of- inillious, to be en?
dorsed by Congress, for tho purpose
of purchasing lands forced into the
market; which was adopted.
W. E. Rose, from the Committee
on Petitions, reported unfavorably
on a resolution for the appointment
of a committee to report the names
of persons from wbom political dis?
abilities should lie removed. They
are of opinion that persons desiring
their disabilities removed should
make individual application for such
purpose, and it would then be time
enough to decido upon their respect?
*B?; F. Bandjfdph* made a report of
the Committee on Miscellaneous Mat?
ters On a resolution to make a penal
offence the nae of the epithets negro?
nigger and Yankee, recommending
that it be laid on the table. Adopted. 1
Also, a report of the same Committee

was read the first time.

LEAP YEAH.-Thia blessed 1868 is
the year of jubilee for bashful young
men; wherein they may rest from
the labor of courting and sit back,
with bands crossed, waiting fer pro?
positions from the fair sex.' Time im?
memorial it has been considered the
custom for the ladies to ask all lead?
ing questions one year in four. If
any suffering angel baa been pining
for you in secret, you will be apt to
find it ont before yon are much
older. Concealment, which, like a
worm in the bud, bas been feeding
on her damask cheek, will bavo to
hunt up a new boarding house. It
is oue of the wine provisions di fia
ture, this making men objects of in?
terest every fourth year, and if the
designs of nature are properly car?
ried out, we niay look for a great
many conjugal conjunctions in the
next ten months. It is well known
to those who know anythiug about
it, that a woman can do three times
os much courting in a month as a
man can lu three, and if the ladies
avail themselves of their rights and
perform their proper funotions, sin?
gle beds and furnished lodgings will
become a drug in the market. It is
hoped the young chaps will realize
the great importance and dignity of
the situation they occupy, and will
endeavor to sustain the well earned
reputation of being the noblest work
of God, avoid trifling with the feel?
ings of tho gentle beings who may
desire to become overseers of yonr
happiness. Do not enconrage hopes
that you know can never be realized.
Do not suffer a young lady to expend
half ber income in ooncert tickets,
French candy and buggy rides,
knowing at the time yon receive
those attentions, that abe ia not a
congenial spirit. When you once
make up your mind that she is not
exactly the style of angel you would
be willing to do marketing for, break
the disastrous intelligence to her as
gently and firmly as possible. As?
sure ber that yon feel extremely flat?
tered by ber preference, and that
you shall always esteem her as a
friend. If managed with skill, there
is no danger of the rejection being
accompanied with a sacrifice of hu?
man life. If, which is quite likely,
you moke np yonr mind that the
snitoress is a proper being to sweeten
yonr cares and coffee; to soothe yonr
sorrows and rumple your shirt bo
Boms, let yonr band rest in hers, and
suffer your soft head to fall upon her
womanly bosom (miud tbe breast-pin)
aud murmur something abont papa.
Singlo men have new an opportunity
of doing much good toward reclaim?
ing the noble science of courting
from its present degenerate and
horse-jockeying state, to which it has
been reduced mainly through the
agenoy of the horrible practice of
flirting. This grim pas-time is most?
ly addicted to lovely females.
