BY J. A. SELBY. COLUMBIA, S. C., FRIDAY MORNING-, DECEMBER 15, 1871. VOL. VII-NO. 230.
We suppose that marble bttsfca cannot
feel. If they could, what agonies would
the image of Ben. Franklin endure-the
imago, we mean, of that solid old sago
which has just been placed over the door
of the Government printing office in
Washington 1 In the first place, Frank?
lin was the last man in the world to care
for that sort of distinction at all. In
the next place, this fine old philosopher
was nothing if not eoonomioal, and the
greatest pleasure he had in discovering
the laws of lightning was in tho satisfac?
tion he experienced from thinking of the
property whioh his lightning-rods would
save. He knew weilhow to manage a
printing office, and he liked the typo?
graphical business; bnt tho enormous
amount of money whioh we spend for
"public printing" of no sort of good to
anybody but the printer and paper-ma?
ker, wonld have greatly disturbed an
equanimity whioh was not easily dis?
turbed. His bust is all very well; bnt |
we wish they could learn, in the Govern?
ment printing office, a little of his econ?
omy.-2few xork Tribune.
. Never WSB there a body of men so
I denounced as are the Southern carpet?
baggers at the North. Never did men I
more riohly deserve denunciation. The |
Republican press is more bitter than
others. And yet what has the Federal
Government done to relieve ns of them?
Nothing. Our own native people, upon
information of suborned witnesses, are
put in jail, fined and persecuted in
many ways; but the rascally oarpet-bag
gera are unwhipped of juBtioe and in the
f till enjoyment of their plunder.

feebled systems. Every one knows that in
passing from a warm region to a oold one or

equally necessary to acclimate the system in

FEW reasons why they should have- the
preference over all others:
1. Wheeler & Wilson's Sowing Machino is
muoh simpler than any of tho others; ro
S,iring leas than half tho amount of ma
2. As tho result of this simplicity, this ma?
chine is much loss liablo than tho others to
get ont of repair.
3. Another result .of thin simplicity is
4. Another result is lean friction, and, con?
sequently, greater easo and rapidity of mo?
tion, with lees noiso.
6. And greatest of all, that it uses no Shut?
tle, and makes tho lock stitch.
It is the cheapest to buy tho best. Buy tho
machine that has Justly, fairly and honora?
bly won a reputation and independence
against a strong and hitter competition. For
more than twenty years has tho Wheeler A
Wilson not only Btood first and foremost, but
now stands the uni Walled Sewing Machine ol
tho enlightened civilized world, liny thc ma?
chine that bas beeu thus tested and proved,
and then yon are suro to get tho best. For
