Ration - Tor the .Southern Poor-' ;
It is "Btated that Gen. nowarct, ?wbi isa
the head of the lYeedmen'a Bureau, is to re-,
sign; and it is also statecpthat an xrder has
been issued . to discontinue rations : to tbo
Southern poor,, and to : turn ; them over for .
support to the local civil authorities. We do
not see how the latter statement an be cor
rect, when we call to mind the following re
solution of Congress on the subject: i
THinTY-HENTH CONGRESS FIRST 8KSSIOK;
CONGRESS OP THE UNITED. STATES, IN THE
HOCSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, StAY 1st, 18C6.
Mr. Kelly submitted the following, which
was adopted : x
Whereas, It is reported by - citizens .of
Alabama, in formal memorial to the two
Houses of Congress, that many of the people
of the mountain districts of that State are
suffering from want of adequate supplies of
food, and that considerable numbers of them
have'lied of actual starvation, therefore
Be it resolved. That the President be re
quested to instruct the proper officers of the
Bureau of Refugees and Freedmen, to enquire
into the condition of said districts, and any
nther district of the late insurgent States, in
which such suffering may be said to exist,
and to relieve the people thereof, and pro
vide them with corn and other, seed for
planting a crop sufficient for an annual sup
ply of each family requiring such relief.
(Signed) . EDWARD McPHERSON,
This resolution is still in force. It was
introduced by a leading "radical" Judge
Kelly, of Philadelphia. It makes ample pro
vision for the poor of both races ; and we do
not doubt that the President will cause the
resolution to be duly carried out, if the of
ficers of the Bureau shall report to him that
it is necessary to do so.

Extract from a letter to the Editors of the
Standard, dated East Tennessee, Aug. 15th,
" The people are becoming unduly exci
ted in East Tennesee some endorsing the
course of the President, and condemning the
course of Congress, and vice term. Each
party denouncing the other; politicians
making speeches over the country, &c., all of
which is -Calculated to bring trouble upon us.
The other day there were two men killed at
Tazewell, Claiborne County Tennessee, which
is said to have been the result of a speech
made there by a member of the Tennessee
Legislature, just returned home. A Union
man was killed recently at Estelville, Virginia,
by reliels, because, as I learn, he refused to
be drilled by rebel officers who bad taken it
upon themselves to organize the militia, but,
tor what purpose, I am not informed.
I fear, I awfully fear that worse times are
coming upon us."
Herrins's Safes in the Late Port
laud Conflagration. There is a moral to
be drawn from one of the incidents of the
late disastrous fire in Portland, that should
be carefully considered by those who would
avoid a danger that is all the more insidious
because we are apt to imagine ourselves se
cure from it.- We refer to the test that has
been applied to the safes of different manu
factures that were exposed to the terrible or
deal of fire there. The word safe, which is
applied to the iron chests or boxes that are
manuiactureu oy an matters, is oniy applica
ble, in reality, to such as have successfully
stood the test, and our advertising columns
show that the Herring Safe fairly sustains the
reputation it long ago acquired, of being
one of the most perfect fire-proofs yet made.
Atter seeing the reports of the great losses of
valuables contained in other safes, we were
led to inquire why people should be so blind
to their own interests as to trust their treas
ures in such insecure depositories, when oth
ers that had been proved and tried in hun
dreds of fires, could be had. and we were in
formed that in this, as in many other matters.
people forget the motto. The best is the
cheapest,'" and that one cause of the great
loss in this instance was, that the Portland
merchants had purchased safes manufactured
in the East that were cheaper tlrau Herring
could afford to sell his for. We should as
soon trust oar funds to a street broker, who
might offer a large interest, than the more
cautious and wellknown neighboring banker,
4is put our valuables in an iron box that will
not stand the test of lire; and having experi
enced the satisfaction of owning one of Her
ring's make, we the more cheerfully recom
mend them to our friends. Scottish Ameri
A Canadian Cheese. At a factory in
Canada a huge cheese has been made, which
weighs three and a half tons, and measures
six feet eight inches in breadth, and three in
thickness. The milk used in it manufacture
weighed thirty-five tons, and wp.s furnished
by eight hundred cows. This huge cheese
will be on exhibition in Toronto at an agri
cultural fair to be held there during Septem
ber. The Corn Crop of the United States.
A correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette
gives some interesting statements of the corn
crop of this country, and by some tabular
statestics shows that the average increase of
this crop is about five per cent, per annum. In
1850 the crop was 377.531,875 bushels ; in
1860, 592,671,104 ;in 1860, 830,461,705 ; and
the estimated crop for 1866 is 1,039,000, 000.
A Man Shot by his Dog. Mr. John Cole,
of Johnston county, recently went to the
house of his neighbor, Mr. Nathan Williams,
to go a-hunting. While standing in the yard,
with his gun by his side and his dog play
ing about him, and jumping up on him,
the dog accidentally struck his foot against
the hammer of the gun and tired it off, the
shot entering the left of Mr. Cole's abdomen,
and traveling upward along the left side, and
coming out at the shoulder. At last ac
counts Mr. Cole was alive, buthis ultimate
recovery is considered doubtful. Sentinel.
Prospect of the Cotton Crop.
New Orleans. August 21. The cotton
is reported as knee-high in the eastern part
of Warren -and Claiborne counties, Mhs., and
devastated by the worm. Reports from
Hinds, Madison, Carroll, Claiborne, and
Scott counties give a basis for an estimate
that the crop of 1866 would be four hundred
-thousand bales in Mississippi, and one mil
lion seven hundred thousand bales in the
Hoosieb "YV omen. A couple of wo
men got into , "an entanglement" at
JMadison, Ind, . a day or two ago, and
one ot them fractured the skull of the

A Delegation of Working-men
Addresses by both Parties in relation
to the present Labor System.
Washington, Aug. 25. The Committee
appointed by the Baltimore Labor Conven
tion waited on the Presideut to-day. Mr.
Hinchliffe, the spokesman, disclaimed any
connection with political parties. He urged
that eight hours of labor each day should
become legalized, and that the public lands
should be distributed so as to be reached by
laborers and not by capitalists ; and that
workingmen shall be protected against con
vict labor, nc asked the President's assis
tance to accomplish these measures.
In reply the President said he was opposed
to the present system of convict labor on
account of its unjust discriminations and de
grading influences. He desired to see labor
elevated to its proper position, and his whole
history showed that he was against the mon
opty of public lands by capitalists. He was
in favor of shortening the number of labor
ing hours to the least consistent with the wel
iare of all, and the laboring men could rely
upon his influence,when it could be given in
their behalf. They had his sympathy and
best feelings, and he hoped they would ac
complish their purposes.

Pittsburg, May 10, 1866.
Messrs. Hostetter & Smith :
Gentlemen : During a visit to the West last
fall, I contracted chills and fever which brought
me to my bed, and finally terminated in typhoid
fever, and confined me to my bed for several
months, during which time I was physically so
prostrated that I almost despaired of ever recov
ering my health ; having almost entirely lost my
appetite for days, not being able to eat a morsel,
added to which I was distressed with a reeling
sensation in my head, and passed many sleepless
nights all from debility caused by my prostrate
condition, brought about by the fever. At this
stage of my condition a friend recommended me
to use your celebrated Stomach Bitters, but be
ig morally opposed to the use of stimulants in
any form, I at first declined but afterward yield
ed my prejudices, and, after taking the medicine
for several weeks, my appetite returned, and
with It I am rapidly regaining my former strength
and vigor. My sleep (from the loss of which I
have suffered much.) has never been better than
it is now, and the reeling sensation (before allu
ded to) lias entirely left me. My bowels, which
were much constipated and irregular, are now

Purify the Blood. If the blood be pure
the body which is formed from and by the blood
cannot be diseased. But if there be in any part
of the body any affection, such as a boil or ulcer,
even a bruise, the blood circulating through that
part takes up impure matters from the leal af
fection and carries it into the general system.
This is the cause often of sudden death to per
sons of full habit afflicted with boils and ulcers,
and who use no medicine; the matter gets into
the circulating system and chokes up the fine
blood vessels which supply the brain with vitali
ty, and life ceases, as if
Bereft by Lightning.
Now, this can be remedied.

save the sreneral health, soon curing local affect

TO THE COLORED PEOPLE ' '
OF NORTH-CAROLINA I
THE STATE CONVENTION OF COLORED
men, held in this City last September, as a me-
dium through which the colored citizens could
communicate their thoughts, purposes and de
sires, formed a State League, with its auxiliaries, '
to look after the Interests oi the Colored People
of the State. The State Legislature has been
memorialized in behalf of the colored people,
and our petition was treated with respectful con- :;
sideration. We have, as far as practicable, es
tablished auxiliary Leagues to promote the cause . ' .
of Education, and to look after the suffering .
poor. While we feel a deep sense of gratitude to
those Benevolent Societies which have done so '
much for the Freedman, still we are conscious of -the
fact that we most learn to rely upon onr- ,'"
selves, and the world is looking to us for a dem- ''
onstration of onr capacity to perform the part of
useful, intelligent citizens.
The State League is the only recognized organ- '
ization we, as a colored people, have; and it'
having performed its duties to the best of its
ability, ft was enjoined on us to call another Con-jv ' '
vertioD. to be held in the City of Raleigh, on the
first Tuesday in October next, the second day of :
the month. Let each County be represented as
the Counties are represented in the State Legis-
lature. In Counties where there are Leagues,
the Counties to be represented by the Leagues.
Let each County send its best men aa delegates.
This is no time to compliment friends at the. ex-,
pense of the public good. Let the people be In- .
fiuenccd only by the consideration of qualifica- '
tion, and let the delegates be nere promptly on
the day appointed, t hat we may counsel together .
for the good of our people, and adopt such
measures as will best promote our Interest. -
It is earnestly desired that every county be
fully represented. -
Delegates will come prepared to defray the ex
penses of the Convention.
