Tbi^daj, April 23,18S3.
We have before us a treatise on this
important subject written by Prof. S.
Waterhouse at the request of the United
Stntcs Commissioner of Agriculture.
^hc-42}i]3cr is a fu? and thorough one
?atl should deeply interest every farmer
in the,SoutlK The new and growing in

cautior. tftid apparent freedom .from ex
- nggerntion. that give the words of the
uutho? special weight. Jute has been
cultivated ia India for hundreds of years
with unvaried success, but in the last
halt century it has entered so largely iu
the commerce and industries of foreign
nations that a considerable demand has
arisen for the article. It lias been proven
by actual experiment .that the climate
of the South, and especially of South
Carolina? is just as well adapted to its
cultivation as that of India. Prof.
Waterhouse. says: "according to South
era testimony, it is four times as pro
ductive as cotton or flax, while at the
same timi* it takes not more than oue
tentjias much labor to raise it." This
it an important consideration, fur it is
recognized that diversified industry Is our
great"need, nud il Jute requires but on -
touth the work of cotton, it will give us a
great deal more time to diversify our
crops. The demand of the world for
Jute may be seen at a glance. It is
mixed with cotton, linen and silk. It is
a material, of twilled stair carpeting and
j"< low priced broadcloth. Single or mixed,
it enters into the manufacture ofa thous
and articles of commerce. It makes
bags of all kinds and gunny cloth for
.^.bating cotton^ 7The demand then for
V "^baggifig our immense grain and cotton
crops is immense. There arc also im-"
V.portant incidental.advantages of this til
lage. Its vigorous growth exterminates
weeds from the soli, while the bitterness
of it3 juice repels the attack of insects.
?"It has been found that cotton fields
surrounded by a belt of Jute were ex
"""??^rm^Hfr^^ the cater
pillcr, while unprotected fields in the
sntui neighborhood suffered from its
ravages." Prof. Waterhouse shows, by
nctuakrfgiscs that the profit on Jute in
the United States has becu very large,

language can to? earnestly express my
ductivc of vast opulence, now awaits thp i

be well for. oiir fanners tolookjuto the
matter. They, will get all the informa

That our readers may have
an idea^f-the barbarous treatment re
ceived by the Inmates of this '-charita
ble" institution, we will make a few ex
^tracts from the testimony of sworn wit
' nesses. Mrs. Jennie E. Pope, an em
ployee, testified that she had seen Mr.
French take an insane woman by the
back of the neck and kick her along the
yard until out of sight, the women meau
while screaming loudly,nud that a woman
was put in a cell and allow ed only bread
and water for three days because she.
cried to se? her child. In the eyes of
these human monsters this mother's love
for her babu was an unpardonable crime
and merited severe punishment, which
was promptly inflicted in the manner
above mentioned by Mrs. Pope. Dr.
Sanborn testified that while he was a
student at a dental college he bought the
body ot a woman from Tewksbury for
fourteen dollars. The idea of speculat
ing in human bodies seems to be about as
revolting a thing as "cuUuah, ami refine
ment" could stoop to, but when John
I*. McGover, another witness, who work
ed.atr a tannery, says that the skin of a
coloted mau was brought to the tannery
from Tewksburry to be tanned, we feel"
like calling upon Dr. Webster to go im
mediately to Boston and establish a mis
sion post under the very shadow of the
Bunker Hill Monument. Tanning a col
ored man's skin ! Such a barbarity would
not have been tolerated in South Caro
lina in the worst days of slavery. After
death, our slaves were not sold to medi
cal colleges, but were decently interred,
nnd the idea of making leather out of
their hides was never entertained by the
mielest of masters. But then we hadn't
got go far along in "cultuahand refine

we devoutly hope we never w 11 This

bad as he is, was not elected Governor
ofMassachsetts one day too soon.
A Practical Age,
Tins is certainly a utilitarian age.

A Pious Old Rftt.
The report that Jay Gould is about to
retire from Wall Street reminds the >Tew
York Twhm of the fable of a pious old
rat who called his friends together and
told them that, in consideration ot lue
remorse over !us predatory ami uot very
honest life, he had resolved to hie him to
a hermit's retreat. He would forswear
the world and live solitary hi an enforced
and painful retirement. Wiping the tears
from his eyes, he took his departure, to
the great sorrow and edification of his
former assoein'es. Vainly was he sought
for weeks by those who would discover
the'cell of this self-denying recluse, until
a venturous explorer found the pseudo
hermit snugly hidden away in the heart
of a lame Cheshire cheese. Thus it is
with this reformed stock jobber. lie
may wipe his eyes sanctimoniously as he
bids a sentimental' farewell to all the
"wicked devices of Wall Street and its
surrouuuldgs as he hies himself to private
seclusion, but hunt him up whenever any
great rascality is going on in Wall Street,
and you will (lud him at the very heart of
the financial cheese, where the Lest pick

'Stiil on Iii? War Path.
"A Colored Subscriber" of the Xcw

Georgia, gives the Republican brethren
something to think about. lie says :
"We are still on the war path with our

Too Much "Affections."
A dispatch last week announced that
a "young man" in Xew York had com
menced suit against a young lady of the
same city for ten thousand dollars for
"kicking" him. claiming that his affec
tions had been damaged to that amount
by the aforesaid "kicking." This fellow
must have had a powerful stock of "af
fections" on baud, and the young ladv
must have been a "kicker" of the first
maguilude. or he certainly lOuldu't have
suffered so severely. The jury ought
to acquit the fair defendant on the
ground that no man ever owned ten
thousaud dollars worth of "allcctions"
at one time, and. further, that it is one
I of the inalienable rights of our girls to
"kick" whom they pleasg. This is the.
pcoition we hold on this question, and
I if an Orangeburg voung man ever gets
so ungallant as to su-3 one ot our fair
maidens because she exercises her right
of "kicking." The Times and Demo
crat would advocate "ridiug him on a
rail." There is no room la Orangeb?rg

The Washiugton Gazette says Arthur,
as" President is "an imbecile^- but'm
mercy to him and to save the country j
from shame, it refuses to speak what it
knows of the personal habits of the
President. It also magnanimously refuses
to tell what it "knows of some of his
Cabinet Ministers." It concludes a dou
ble-leaded editorial by saying:
"All we have to say is that, from
knowledge and belief, no sucli an Ad
ministration ever before existea in this
country, aud none like it ever should ex- I
ist again. We admit the shame."
What all this means we canuot guess.
It looks like there is something ugly be- J
hind. The Gazette claims to be of Ar
thur's party, and it is printed where it
ought to be able to gather such informa
tion. If Arthur aud members of his
Cabinet are guilty of conduct that "de
grades" and "shames" the country.ought
not the American 'people to know it.
The Gazette ought to tell what "it knows
about the Radical Administration."

The man whose name appears above
will live in South Carolina history as the

persecution of our people in the Uuiled
States Court at Charleston will never be

word aud reproach with generations yet
unborn. lie has certainly earned his
thirty pieces of silver Irom his Radical
masters, and they certainly have no just
right to complain, because everything
that could be done to insult and harass
innocent men has been done by this
modern Judas Iscariot. Let him enjoy

There must be sonic mistake about this
second dispatch, because, wc are inform

"And so it will ever be when rascality

The Republican party, as it existed in

colored element, who took these adders

Such a gang as was here, deserved to be

WOMAN'S BEST FRIEND,
Because it controls a class of functions the
