should not the farmers und planters-<>f
each County associate and erect a cotton
mill bu shares, and thus secure the profit
in converting the ruw material into
yarns? This Bubjeut has been discussed,
to some extent, in the* upper Counties, of
the State, and will, doubtless, result in

Ono enterprising gentleman. Col. ' F.
E. Harrison, Of Anderson ville, who
owun extennivo wuter power, has already
embarked in this business, with some
new and distinctive features, weil worthy
of consideration, lie proposes to re?
ceive from 'thd heigh boring: farmers and
plauters their crops .of out tun, in the
so ml, and manufacturo it into y ar os for u
reasonable toll or per den tage-thus giv?
ing the producer tho advantage of the
manufactured article over the raw mate?
rial, and saving him the expense of bag?
ging and ties. Again, he - proposes to
buy, if he ban, all he may otherwise
manufacture in tho seed, .?toro it in the
seed, and only gio it from day to day as !
ho may be abie to convert it into yarns.
First, because this saves the expense
of bagging'and ties; and, second, and
mtuh the most important feature, is the
' preservation of the staple of lint of'the
cotton in its original strength and glossi?
ness. As long as the seed is not separat?
ed from the lint, it affords oanstant sup?
plies of oil to the lint, and yarns or
cloth thus.made will be stronger in tex?
ture and Chow bettor cn thc markets.
This gives the Southern people an
advantage over all importers, whether
domestic or foreign, in the manufacture
of cotton, which they should not be too
tardy ip securing. PROGRESS.
NOBTUEBN SETTLERS-THEIK RECEP?
TION.-On this subject, tho Carolina
Weekly Slav says:
A great deal bau. been published in
Northern newspapers concerning the
treatment of Northern men who have
immigrated into the South since the re?
storation of peace, much of which is co?
lored by prejudice, but a good deal of it
is honestly stated. Men take very dif?
ferent views of their surroundings, ow?
ing to their different tastes, susceptibili?
ties, prejudices or judgments. When a
Northern man comes South singly and
settles in a strange neighborhood, he is
very apt to imagine that every little so
oially unpleasant incident which may
happen is in some way connected with
the fact that he is a Northern man. And
nine times out of ten it has no connec?
tion with that fact whntever. North
Carolinians have migrated from thin
State to regions of the South-west, and
have encountered.as much that was disa?
greeable as many of the i inmigran ts from
tho North into the Southern States oom
plain of. Men are by nature not only
emt ions, bat jealous of strangers. And
when-there are deoided differences of
; tasto and feeling, the coldness resulting
i is more difficult to break through.
Those- tilings must be expected and cal?
culated on. They are inseparable from
the nature of men, and are especially
incident to a time of great irritation,
like the prcsont, when niue out of every
ten of the best class of Southern citi?
zens have got tho impression (correctly
or incorrectly, we do not nnderluke to
decido which,) that the Government of
the oonutry is engaged in a systematic
effort to deprive them of their constitu?
Our true interest is to encourage
Northern immigration, and we advise
cur people to be kind and sociable to all
Northern immigrants settling among
them, provided their conduct will justify
it. We should olaim no right to influ?
ence the opinions of men. But of their
oonduot we have a right to judge; and
whenever that becomes auch that associ?
ation would be encouraged and nnpleo
sant, it is better to cut loose from such
associations. But the true plan for
Northern men desiring to come South, us
we haeo heretofore suggested, is to form
associations of say half a dozon families,
ptirchass a large plantation and divide it
np among themselves. In this way they
become independent of that feeling of
coldness which is felt towards straugora
everywhere; for it is indifference and not
unfriendliness they wjll have to encoun?
ter; when their good qualities como to
be known and appreciated by their new
neighbors, more intimate sound relations
Tho Jewish Messenger, speaking of tho
tcrmB "Jews" and "Isra?lites," Baya
"that 'Jews' is applied to UB with par?
ticular suitableness, will appear to all
who reflect on our past history, l?r the
greatest bulk of our pcoplo, espeoially
styled ?Israel,'has been lost. Tho He?
brews of tho day? of Moaon and the

-*ltfH.--EoiToit?wIiri yow Issue of t?te
date, u D der the title of "Local Items,"
thoro is aa artiole professing to give to
tho- publiiTiii ncoount of tho hearing of
the application ou bohulf of Wm. D.
A? Ueu, E*q<, fer bail, made before J edge
Melton, on yesterday morning. In this
artiolo, the following sentence occurs:
"Solicitor Talley, assisted by Messrs.
Worthington and H?ge, insisted that it
was a capital offence, and consequently
waa not bailable." lam obliged, in jus
tioo to myself, to say that this statement
is not trae in any sense. It may and
doubtless does arise from mistake or
I misunderstanding, but, nevertheless, I
daim it us an act of justice to mo thut
this^error be corrected.
I bad no understanding with Messrs.
Worthington Sc Kogo of auy ground to
; be takon, but was first informed by
them, when I passed thoir ofDco ou my
way to the Court House, that they were
retained to aid thu prosecution. I,'ut
the same moment, gob the testimony be?
fore tho Coroner, which was nil the evi?
dence on the part of tho' prosecution,
and had not seen or heard the affidavits
on the part of the prisoner, and conse?
quently withheld uuy conclusion in re?
gard to the courso to bo pursued. Upou
the conclusion of tho showing on each
side, Messrs. Worthington Sc H?ge suc?
cessively argued the case, presenting the
view that the offence was not bailable.
In accordance with uniform practice, I
reserved tho presentation of my view as
the last of tb? argument on the pnrt of
the State; but in this purpose I was an?
ticipated by the announcement, ou the
conclusion of the two argumenta alluded
to, that the Judge desired to hear no?
thing further on the question, whether
the offence as exhibited by the evidence
waa bailable.' Upon this announcement,
it is manifest that it would have been
improper, an well as wholly useless, that
I should say anything on a point ruled
by the Court. Consequently, I said not
a syllable on this question. It is-mani?
fest, from this statement, that I neither
expressed nor indicated any HU oh opinion
as is imputed to me in the seutoucc
above quoted. Yours respectfully,
WM. H. TALLEY,
Solicitor of Fifth Circuit.

that if anything wns said ubout tin

there seems no immediate or even remo

tor of a Presbyterian clergymnn in the
centre of this State, who hud been
reared in a strict and rigid manner, pro?
ceeded to New Haven, Conn., to spend
a month with friends during the college
commencement season. While there,
taking advantage of tho new freedom
from restraint afforded her, she carried
on extensive flirtations with the students,
und was ruined by a member of tho
senior cluss. He persuaded her to leave
her friends and return with him to New
York, instead of going home. Singular
to relate, she appeared almost from
choice to enter upon city dissipations and
excesses, until, becoming thoroughly
hardened and depraved, a sister came on
to visit her and persuade ber to go back
to her father's home. Instead of doing
so, however, tho visiting sister was also
persuaded to remain and enter upon tlie
same terrible life which her sister waa
lending. Since then the two abandoned
women havo lured their two younger Bis?

A SARCASM TJPON CHURCH CHOIES.
Members of church choirs will probably
feel'a disrelish'(for the following-para?
graphs, which appear in the March num?
ber of the Phrenological Journal:
Remember that all must be done for?
th o glory of the choir. It is absurd to
work in with the prayers and sermon for
harmonious religious effect. If the
minister does not work in the prayers
and singing, ao muon the worse for the
Daring prayers, be whispering and
turning.over .scores and .notebooks and
j consulting. ??p ono of tho saints will
notice you, fdr they will bo hard at
prayer. If any of the congregation do
not particularly desire to be praying, it
will help to entertain them. Keep
things brisk, and draw mach attention
to their choir., The church was built,
and the congregation gathered for tho
choir. Mind that; it is a fundamental
As soon as tho sermon begins go out of
church. If it. is pleasant, weather you
can have a smoke, and get bock in time
for the next musical performance. . You ?
do not come to church to worship; yon
are paid so muoh for Bioging or playing;
not for bearing sermons; or, if yon are
gratuitous, yon have laid the congrega?
tion already under enough obligations by
your professional services.
Never let it be settled among the sing?
ers who is chief. Let each take himself
and herself the most important. Is it
not enough to keep harmony in the
eiugiug? Why ehould the singers be
harmonious? It is not regular and fash?
ionable to have peaoe in a choir.. . The
! singers owe it to themselves to have
! strife about something or nothing. Let
everything be done through strife and
vain glory. It will give the pastor some
concern and develop skill in managing.
Of cours? they never do thia in Heaven;
but you are not in Heaven-yet. .
