IMMTGRANTS FOR THE SOUTH.
conmissioner Wotson states that
he will seenre iaother ship load of c
immigrants this fall and that he has a
a hope t.hat a regular line may be
established between Bremen and
charleston. A dispatch from lremen il

inforation that no encouia'iement

horse tenant on a good f.arm1. If he
can1 work the land that one horse canai
plow, a full average crop would be 10
hales of cotton, 100 bushels of corn
and some fodder and hay. His half,
with cottoti at 10 cents and1 corn at
75. would he $287.50. Add for cotton e
seed, extra potatoes and fowls and s
hay and fodder $50.00. That would b
make his whole income for himself

The question with is has been, do N

This we probably should hav
known also, but it had Iot ocurre(
to us that .the farming 9oerations a
Winthrop were so extensive on cost
ly. It may be that the yOung ladie
are taught farming. ther' also. Th
Advertiser concludes thus: "There
fore it seems advisable that the fan
be sold to the highest blddij' and tha
Winthrop be put. in. the class witi
other seminaries for young ladies si
far as the farming business is con
eerned.'' This conclusion is all righ
and proper if the Advertiser is cer
tain that, this farm at Winthrop iE
not used for the ptrpose of telciini
the young ladies the science of farm
ng as well as for furnishing the tooth
iomke delicacies to which it refers.
Before we can agree to the conclu
4ion by tile Advertiser, we must .4at
isfy ourselves that the only purpose
:)f this farm is to grow delicacies foi

NEW TEZAL RESFU8ED
Judge Pqrdy Will Not Disturb Ver
dict P ase of 14rmon V.
In the case of W. B. Harmon v.
J. L. Cook, in which a verdict for
$7,00 was rendered for the plaintiff,
Judge Purdy has refused a new trial.
His order is as follows:
It is very difficult to settle such
questions as are raised on the motion
for a new trial in - this case. While
the act of the defendant may appear
to be trivia'l, and, too trivial to war
rant so large a verdict, yet just such
acts as this bring about disturbances
of the peace of a community, and,
soielimes deathli. That tile plaintiff
took a peaceful method, instead of a
violent mlethiod, un1der thle circumistanl
ces, is most fortunate. If the defend
ant deemed his right a proper one. to
'he exoreis41, he should not have
t1hroateiied its enforcement with a
siot-iiun. The jury heard tihe whole
case, knew the parties, their surround
ilgs anld t1heir Imleanls, an1d have put
u1poln the deldant a heavy pelailty
in the shiape of a vertdiet, to deter
him and others from doiag acts which
tend to lead to a breach of the peace.
It ought to be a salutary lesson and
I will not disturb the verdict.
