Tho persecution of the Jews in
Rounianin, which has been going on
for several months, belongs among
the most disgraceful exhibitions of
religious intolerance in modern times.
Owing to the earnest remonstrances
of most of tho great powers of Eu?
rope, the Government of Roumania
now professes to have put a stop to
it. Unfortunately, there is great
reason for doubting the sincerity of
tho professions of the Roumauian
Government, and for fearing a repe
tion of the outrages, which, with the
connivance of the Government, have
been committed against the Jews.
Tho New York Sun gives a brief
statement why the income tax is. un?
constitutional. It says tho Constitu?
tion provides that all direct taxes
simii be levied upon the States in
proportion to their population. Con?
gress has no power to levy any
direct tax upon individual citizens,
and must impose such taxes upon the
States and upon them only. The
incomo tax is a direot tax; it is levied
not upon the States, but upon indi?
viduals, and therefore it is unconsti?
tutional, and cannot rightfully be
collected of any man.

MB. EnrroB: Some of your "scion
I tiflo" contributors may ntl vaneo tho
j idea, and prove as a fact, that tm
timbered ' lands are more Hablo to
drought than lands covered -with
I virgin forests. Whether it be so or
not, practical ideas suggest such a
conclusion; and hence our people
should legislate, if possible, for the
preservation of nature's growth, and
by all means discourage the destruc?
tion of our forests. And what more
simple method of effecting such an
end, than by abolishing or reversing
the existing fence laws. At present
your cattle may leap my fences.
atroy my crops, and. leap out again,
and I have no redress bat to build
my fences higher; and this, of cou reo,
requires my cutting down more tim?
ber. Suppose the law were reversed;
?our jumping cattle would then be
utchered, or yon would be neces?
sitated to euclose them in your own
How many planters, think you,
before the war, ever counted the cost
, of building a worm fence around a
ifield of any area? Not one in a
thousand. How many will fail now to
count dial very cost? About the
same number. Lot us resort to
figures a moment. Suppose you have
a nine acre plat of well timbered land
you wish to put into cultivation,
what will be the cost ? I made it as
follows: Cutting timber and mauling
3,500 rails, $20.00; cutting down re?
maining timber, $20.00; piling and
burning brash, $5.00; hauling rails
and building fence, $10.00; hauling
off remaining wood, $9.00. Total,
At least one acre of land is lost by
the fence worm and space inside the
fence, where the plough animals turn
and prevent the growth of a crop; or
i.i other words, tho planter who now
"clears" land, expends eight dollars
per acre before he runs the first fur?
row. I know we often hear men say,
this can't be the case, for it costs me
nothing to haul off the wood and
rails; I have tho mules, and were
they not employed doing this, they
would be idle. Far better pecuniarily
to tho planter that they wero idle.
Just such usage of stock killed off
mules generally before the war, at
about eight or ten years of age,
whereas tho ordinary age of a mule
should be more than double that.
Others will say my women and
"trash gang" clean up my new
grounds and burn tho brush, and
they go in with the average of the
hands at so little, that I don't feel
the expense. Not so. These hands
must be fed and paid, too, for labor,
and the employer that fails to know
the exact moneyed cost of every em?
ployee, will inevitably sink money,
or stint himself.
Again, freedmen aro clamorous for
land, and tho more industrious of
their number are attempting to buy.
Will not they, and all immigrants, be
able and willing to give moro per
acre for tracts, they know they will
not be compelled to euclose, thau
they will for tracts which will require
much oxpense aud heavy labor to
secure them from tho ravages of
strolling stock before they can begin
The money spent, timo lost, and
injury done by cutting down our
forests, can only bo counter-balanced
by a liberal application of commer?
cial manures, and much hope is en?
tertained that the Wando fertilizer
may yet be the means of effecting
this end. It can never be, however,
if sold at the present exorbitant
price. Will not some patriotic mem?
ber of the approaching Legislature
lend his energies to these two sub?
jects? Aid to the Wando Company
will but bo developing our internal
resources. Abolishing the fence laws
will be but reducing tho agricultural
expenses of the State. Yours truly,
LOVE'S YOUNO DREAM.-A young
Michigander recently dreamed n
dream, in which his future wife ap?
peared to him aud invited him to
come to Fremont, in Ohio, and mar?
ry her, promising that tho romance
should end as happily as do all the
children's fairy stories. At breakfast
the dreamer told his dream to n sym?
pathetic old lady, who advised lijni
to "make it come true," as far as he
could, by going to Fremont. To
Fremont ho went, and found it to
correspond with the Fremont of his
dream. Ho also found a lady who
corresponded also. To her he told
his dream, and invited her to help
him in fulfilling it ?be thought ii,
was rather "rushing things," but
finally acquiesced. And now they

' Lord Br O?: gb ora (dead nfc tue age
"OT 'ninety) wa$ one of the most re?

If he fell short of the highest great?
ness--if neither, in literature or

reach tho supreme position/ he yet
distiuguisbed himself so eminently
in them ali, as to make it impossible
to compare his character and labors
with those of any of his co tempora?
Brougham bogan work young and
never rested ' from it till death. In
1797, he was writing for the Transac?
tions of the Boyal Society on the re?
fraction of light; and seventy years
afterward, in 1867, ho delivered a
disconrsn h?fnr? ?he Scciil S vi euee
Congress. The earlier and later parts
of his life were given to science and
letters; and even in the long interval,
when his powers were devoted to
law and politics, he never lost sight
of the studies and pursuits whioh first
engaged his intellect.
Lord Brougham feared to grapple
with nothing. He would write a
treatise on the most obscure branch
of the most abstruse science, as readi?
ly as he would deliver a Parliamenta?
ry speech on the political question
of the hour. He would deliver his
critical opinions on currant literature
and universal philosophy as readily
as a judgment in the Court of
Chancery. AB an advocate, he hod
the management of the greatest
coses. As a politician, he took the
lead in dealing with the largest ques?
tions. As a reformer, he was the
very ablest that England bad during
his life-time. As an orator, he has
his place among the foremost of
To even count in the briefest way
the labors of Brougham would take
up columns; and those interested in
a remarkable Ufo and career, will find
in his biographies material not un?
worthy of study. It was at the open?
ing of the century that he took part
in the founding of tho Edinburgh
Review-an organ whose power soon
became far greater than anything
ever known in periodical literature.
A few years afterward, he entered
Parliament, where he at once became
conspicuous by his powers of debate
and his liberal principies, and where
he spoke on every question of homo,
foreign and colonial policy. It is
not necessary to dwell upon his
efforts to abolish the slave trade, and
his signal success. Suffice it to say,
that in 1811 he brought in a bill
making the slave trade, by whom?
soever practiced, felony, and the bill
received the Royal assent. Such a
fe;*t would have been enough to pre?
serve his name in history. Said ono
of his biographers, writing in this
journal: "The period between 1816
and 1830, that is to say, between his
thirty-eighth and fifty-second year,
were those of his zenith and celebri?
ty. The whole of this period was
ono of running warfare between Tory
privilege and popular rights, aud the
latter won the day, only step by step
and point by point." Tho years
1820 and 1821 are epochs in his life,
owing to his conduct in those years
of Queen Caroline's case. His two
great speeches as Hor Majesty's At?
torney-General on her divorce and
coronation, though forensic, greatly
increased his reputation in Parlia?
ment. Ho took the lead - on the
great question of law reform, and
lived to see most of the reforms
which he advocated carried out. To
pass them in reviow would bo, to pass
in review the English Statute Book.
When tho Whigs came into power,
after the passage of the Reform Bill
of 1832, Brougham, to the surprise
of every one, became Lord Brougham
and Vaux and Lord High Chancellor
of England. His activity as Lord
: Chancellor was as prodigious as it
! had been as plain Mr. Brougham.
In the reconstruction of 1835, Brough?
am broke from the Whigs and re?
tired on his Ex-Chancellorship of
$5,000 a year to what has been called
a life of "energetic isolation." In
his period of independent activity he
was for a long time Ht tie less promi?
nent, than before, and on almost
every measure of reform and advance?
ment he took his place. His labors
for public education, in Parliament
and out of Parliament, for the eleva?
tion of tho working classes, through
mechanics' institutes, the Society
for the Diffusion of Useful Know?
ledge aud the Penny Cyclopedia, were
enormous; and his contributions to
various branches of literature, as well
as his studies in science, seemed to
suffer little intermission by reason
of his other labors or his advancing
Brougham, il soeins, ac tho close
of existence, literally "fell asleep."
He sleeps after a life full of great
