any cheaper. I hope you will call.

TBSS t 92-00 IN ADVANCE.
JAN. 4, 1873.
Those of our county readers who
complain and justly of the heavy
burden imposed upon them by. the
courts, we would advise to exam
ine the docket, for a single term of
the Circuit Court. They 'will find.it
composed of between two and three
hundred cases, with parties U them
numbering six or seven hundred.-; It
is upon such facts as these that the
demand for reform is based, and the
first inquiry to be made is, who is to
blame for the heavy costs of the Crim
inal and Circuit Courts ? . Not the
courts themselves, for they are institu
ted for the sole purpose of adjudica
ting the cases brought before them by
corporations and individuals. To do
this, they must have witnesses and
jurors, and these will have pay for
their services all out of the pockets
of the people. How is reform to. be
consummated ? It can not be effected
by the legislature alone, then if done
at all, it must be by the people them
selves. ; When they cease to litigate
and to violate the penal code, they
will have no cause for further com
plaint of the burdens, imposed by
courts, juries and witnesses.. . '
A very large proportion of the civil
cases results from carelessness in trad
ing, and from a want of a full un
derstanding between parties to con
tracts, and a large majority of the suits
in the Circuit Court, could, in our opin
ion, be settled as justly, far more
promptly and without eost, by sub
mitting-themto the arbitration of two
or three intelligent and practical busi
ness men, chosen by the parties them
selves. Even this sensible and cheap
mode of settlement can be general
ly dispensed with where . the parties
are honest and fully understand the
terms of their contract. Those who
suffer themselves to be sued for debt,
would find it more to their interest to
to sell their property privately, and pay
the debt, than to wait for the Sheriff
to do it and add interest and costs to
the: original amount. Besides they
have no moral right to tax the county
with the pay of juries and witnesses,
and to force their neighbors to serve
in either capacity, to the detriment of
their private interests, for' no other
purpose than to force a tricky debtor
to pay an honest debt. . :
If the legislature can constitution
ally do so, it ought to enact a law do
ing away with juries in 'civil "causes,
unless .the parties litigant demand the
intervention of a jury. - and -ini-wat
case, the party or parties demand
ing it, shall pay the cost. This
would do much toward the contem
plated reform, relieve the people of a
portion of their burden and enable
the court to get through the docket in
half the time, and with far more com
fort to bench, bar and attendant offi
cers. But why ask the Legislature to
correct abuses for which the people
are responsible ? It cannot enact laws
to prevent loose and fraudulent con
tracts, except by punishing the guilty
throuffh the aeency of the courts. It
cannot enact laws that will make men
honest in all their dealings with each
other, and in the absence, of such re
forniatorv powers, the people must
turn from the legislature and look to
themselves for the correction of the
abuses due to their own want of that
business integrity, without which the
courts will continue to be crowded with
Our object now, is not to point out
the endless variety of transaction which
lead to lawsuits, unncessarily ; but to
call attention to the simple fact that
until the people reform themselves,
there can be no material reform in
their institutions. Honest men have
no occasion to go to law, unless forced
to do so by the criminal and dishon
est, Courts are instituted to punish
crime and protect the rights of hon
est men against the aggressions of the
dishonest." Then the first step towards
reform is the diminution of crime and
dishonesty; as long as they abound,
courts, with their costly machinery,
will continue to burden the people
with taxes and force the attendance of
jurors and witnesses.
AFRICAN COLONIZATION. ,
The commercial prosperity of all
countries seems to depend very great
ly upon planting colonies in new and
distant lands. In the United States
the peopling and improving of a vast
public domain has afforded the same
stimulus which anciently Greece and
Rome, and, in more recent times,
Venice, Holland and Great Britain
have found in occupying and settling
transmarine regions previously in
habited, if at all, only by wild, sav
age tribes. Ana it is remarkable,
that the foreign commerce of every
nation, in either ancient or modern
times, has always flourished in pro
portion to its colonial enterprises,
and declined only when its colonies
were lost by reverses in wur or sever
ed from the parent country by some
pther cause. Our own country,
which may seem at first an excep
tion, only confirms the rule. Here
we have bad what might be called
an inland colonization constantly go
ng on in the Western States and
Territories. But we have, to a great
extent, also, lost our foreign com
merce. Our inland colonies have re
quired the construction of numerous
long lines of railways and of canals
marvelous for their length. The na
tion's energies turned toward the
heart of a great continent have been
withdrawn fnm commerce on the
Although it may be some time be
fore the public lands, now unoccupi
ed, will have been so fully settled up,
that any of our native population
will feel the necessity of looking to
new countries across the great seas for
homes, yet there are many cogent
reasons why the immediate coloniza
tion of Africa, by the colored people
of tbe' South, should be encouraged
by all good friends of both races.
' L"S either can be so prosperous and
happy as both would be, if separate
and living in different countries. Act
and feel a they may, human nature
itself will cause each to distrust and
suspect the other. History bears un
deviating testimony to the fact that
no two jaces can long live together
peacefully and prosperously as mem
bers of the same community. Amal
gamation or separation are the inev
itable alternatives. The Hebrews
and Canaanitea, the Castilians and
Moors,- the Europeans and North
American Indians, have all expe
rienced the force of this law. But
these are only the most familiar examples.-
There are many others.
For, wherever two races, of diSerent
origin and different mental and mor
al character, have been intermixed,
they both have lost their individuali
ty and become one, or the self asser
tion of each has widened the dis
tance between them. 'The ancient
Britons, 'Danes, Saxons and Nor
mans commingled and became what
is now the -English people; but it
was x blending only of very similar
elements into a homogeneous whole.
But it is, criminal madness to even
dream of such a consummation in
the caseof the white and black races.
Therefore, there remains only the
other alternative of separation,
which most sooner or later come to
pass, colonization presents a pacmc
and profitable solution of this prob-
lem ; -and there is no cause for delay
Endless trouble or the colonization
of Africa are all that we have left to
us, in this matter, to choose from.
2. The execution of this plan will
not only remove an incubus from the
white race, but it will also increase
the commercial activity of the na
tion, while it can be made a source of
profit to individual citizens." The
great continent of Africa has exten
sive regions of fertile lands, teeming
with animal and vegetable life, rich
in gold, diamonds and ivory, aud on
ly waiting to furnish to the- negroes
of the South the home, which nature
designed for them.
i 3. Colonization in Africa offers to
the negro himself the only prospect
which he can possibly find, of real
izinar his hopes for social advance
ment or political preferment. In con
tact with. the white race in this
country he must forever remain sub-
qrdinate and inferior. Tn Africa,
among his own people, he can be
come the peer of the greatest men of
his country. Socially or politically
he will find there no barrier in his
way to eminence.
MANIFACTURiXG IN CLARKSTILIE.
Clarksville has all the natural ad
vantages necessary to carrying on
extensive manufactures of all articles
made of iron, Wood or leather. "And
for the production of these three sta
ples themselves, this place is most
conveniently situated. Within thir
ty miles of. here are located several
furnacesTor "smelting ore," that have
produced the finest quality of pig
iron. Most of theAasa now in oper
ation and their nier could profit
ably be increased They have gener
erallv used crurcoal. But the ore
which has hitherto been smelted in
these furnaces could readily be
brought to this city, and smelted with
the coal which can so conveniently
and cheaply be brought hither, by
the proper use of our facilities for
transportation present aud prospect
ive. Down the Cumberland could be
floated a world of coal at a very cheap
rate. While only forty miles distant
are the great coal fields ot Kentucky,
There would be economy in bringing
the ore for smelting to this point;
nor would the cost of transportation
be considerable. Mt. Vernon furnace
i3 only ten miles distant, Cumber
land furnace, in Dixon county, is
twenty miles, Rough and Ready,
about thirty, and Laurange, say
about forty or fifty miles distant,
All these furnaces are in operation
now, or recently have been ; and in
the vicinity of each of them there
are abundant supplies of 'excellent
ore. luese, then, are are some or
our advantages :
1. Coal that can be brought down
the Cumberland, coal that can be
brought up the Cumberland, coal in
Kentucky, coal admirably suited to
the purpose on every hand ; ore
abundant in the southern part of
Montgomery county, and in many
parts of Dixon, Houston, and Stew
art, almost looking up out of the
earth and begging to be brought to
light and usefulness; the surround
ing hills and valleys, rich in unde
veloped wealth ready to yield up their
treasures ; and our noble river plead

for our good ; these are all ours for
2. In the manufacture of leather a
quarter of a million dollars could find
mmediately a richly remunerative
investment here. The fine forests of
this and adjacent counties abound in
supplies of tan bark. It is enough to
make us blush for shame to think of
what we, as consumers, blindly pay
for the transportations of raw hides
to the Northern States, then for
bringing the leather, manufactured
there, back to us again, to say noth
ing of the many profits and commis
sions of middle, men, when here at
our doors is the raw material inviting
capital and enterprise. Leather is an
article'of prime necessity. It enters
into the composition and construc
tion ' of many articles indispensable
to civilized man. Ite Manufacture in
this city need involve no risk ; and
the profits would equal thjuse realized
in the North, with the cost of trans
portation, not only of the raw mate
rial but also of the article itself, as so
much clear to the Clarksville tanner.
It will be difficult to find anywhere
else in the world an opportunity for

To the Tobacco Planters nnd Prizers
of Clarksrille andHopklnsrllle Dis
tricts. Gentlemen : We desire to call
your attention to some abuses, which
nave gradually grown up in our dis
trict, in the management of the to
bacco crop , until they are now so
great, as to cry aloud for remedy.
We allude to the mixing of various
qualities of leaf in one hogshead, and
in some cases to the unfair packing of
same. Universal complaint was made
against our section the past season, a
tobacco district, which has hereto
fore held the first rank for fine tobac
co, skillful management and honest
W e appeal to you to give your arn
est aid to ctieefc this evil at once, and
to recover again tho oW-time honored
reputation of Clarksville Tobacco.
To show how universal are the com
plaints, we Doint to the few extracts
below, as giving the present opinion of
the tobacco world, in regard to the
management in our section.
Messrs. Sawyer, Wallace & Co. of
New York, in their circular of Dec
2nd, say : It is proper" to mention
the frequent and loud complaints re
ceived from Bremen, of tobacco bought
at the larksville and iiopkinsvaie
breaks, turning out entirely dinerent
and vastly inferior to the Western
samples. We have had some experi
ence of this ourselves, and if continued
another season, it must work great in
jury to i these markets. We know
there is a difference of opinion as to
what constitutes a fair sample ; wheth
er it should include a portion ot the
short tobacco prized around the turn
of the cask. Our inspectors, and
those of several Western breaka in
clude this, their samples representing
a T 1 .11 1 1
everytning tney nna in tne nogsneaus ;
and any other course leaves open such
a door for fraud, that we are convinced
it is the only safe plan.
Now is the time, therefore, to noti
fy the planters, that if their hogsheads
are not ot uniform quality, top. Dot
torn and sides, it will all certainly ap-
appear in the sample.
Mr. Verheyden of Belgium, who
held in 1872 Tobacco contracts from
Spain, France, and Italy, has expressed
himself as follows : " You may well
assure your planters, prizers, and all
whom it may concern, that we are deter
mined not to purchase next year, one
single hogshead of mixed stuff. They
have merely for us the value ofluss, as
they are only admitted by the Kegie
governments under- that classifica
tion. It is then understood that we
shall only accept unmixed hogsheads,
and the crop will be fully sufficient to
admit of that, and Bupply the markets
with the quantities ot selections un
mixed, sought for by purchasers."
The well known German house of
Messrs. Chas. ' Luling & Co. say.
" Clarksville and Hopkinsville samples
this year, compared very unfavorably
with those of the Bremen inspection
and ii-equent complaints have been
made, and every effort should be made
in the interests of the tobacco trade
of your cities, to check and adjust ir
regularities, for otherwise, your in
spections will no more be recognized
Mr. IIcinrRiensch, tobacco broker
of Bremen, in bi circular of Nov. 1,
savs: i he larger part ot our stocks
of Kentucky tobacco in first hands
has been redrawn, holders findinggrcat
reluctance on the side ot buyers, to
purchase on American samples, wbich
too otten prove perfectly unreliable.
The slight and wanton way, in which
sampling frequently seems to be done
abroad, severely damages trade, and
we are sorry to say that the lornier
confidence in the good will of Ameri
can inspectors is greatly shaken, in
many instances, even cnanged into
Messrs. Sehutte & Lehmkuhl of
Bremen, say : " The purchasers of To
bacco have experienced too heavy
losses in consequence of the many false
American samples, and it is quite
necessary that your inspectors should
give all their attention to this subject:
tnd that each sample should lairly
represent the whole hogshead. I he
purchasers in this city have come to
the resolution, that the seller has to
Eay for the difference of each hogs
ead, which turns out to differ from
your samples, and the seller will of
course claim irom the American ship
per. We, therefore, again request you,
to use all of your influence for the in
spectors to draw fair samples."
Mr. 1. Y . fcmythe of Liverpool,
Ensrland. savs: "Your nlnntera and
prizers should be induced to change
their habit of packinsr short tobacco
around their hogsheads; our inspec
tors regard such hogheads as an at
tempt at fraud, and always put a por
tion of the short tobacco in their sam
ples. African buyers refuse to take
such hogsheads: and they have to be
sold for export ata price near the value
ot the short breaks, entailing heavy
losses upon the shipper." .
We quote Irom jlr. Ihompson
Greenfield's Circular of Oct 1st, as
follows : " To my Western friends:
Though I am aware that from decreas
ed planting of late, they cannot assort
their crops as carefully as formerly,
still they can, aud ought to avoid mix-
nK their fine, and packing the sides of
hogsheads with ehort tobacco and
lugs. Careless prizing and mixing
renders the purchase of fine qualities.
risky and uncertain, particularly for
foreign account and nianutactur
ing, where samples are drawn in their
interest ; all tobacco prized by plant
ers and dealers, should be uniform in
Jength, quality and color in the same
Thus bringing the trade back to the
proper proportion as in years past, of
ugs, nnc anu cnoice, ana l risK nom
ine in saving, that the average price
will be more than under the present
system, as well as more satisfactory
and profitable to buyers and manu
facturers." U e could add many more extracts
from the correspondence of shippers
this year, which has been mortifying
to those who have the good name of
our section at heart. But the above
from well known houses is sufficient to
ndicate the extent to which .the evil
Much tobacco has been sold in
Bremen this year, by Clarksville and
Honkinsville samples, hence the many
complaints from that market.
In the old keel-boating days, a habit
arose, oi packing a bundle or twoot
more inferior tobacco, in each course
around the sides, to protect the finer
leaf from damp, and a layer of the Bame
on the heads, to protect from green
heading, seasoned plank bcinir scarce :
and many planters, accompanying their
crops, would sometimes have these
layers thrown off in New Orleans.
This custom has gradually grown
into an abuse, until in some cases, the
good leaf has been packed in a square,
and then filled out to the cask with
short tobacco. The habit of mixing
in short tobacco has grown so general
that some planters have said that the
buyers expect it, and bay with that
The buyers fear it, but hope the
contrary, and would pay more, if they
were sura tho hogsheads were uniform.
Very many planters rigidly exact in
their packing, nave been discouraged by
their neighbors who were less careful,
realizing an equal price, but a point
has been reached when all this will
change, and -honesty -a-nd carefulness
reap their just reward. There is no
true reason why a hogshead of good
leaf should be lined with inferior or
lugs, any more than that a barrel of
flour should be lined with bran.
Great blame is thrown upon the in
spec-tors, but without doubt they gen
erally try to do their duty, though
warehousemen in their contest for
business, may sometimes try. to infiu
ence them. The great root of the
evil is in the packing, and we should
strike at that; if the hogshead is
packed uniformly, the inspector can
not draw a sample unfair to either
buyer or sailer.
- Y e have heard of packers offering
themselves in the country, with their
own recommendation, "that they could
fool the Inspectors every time." Of
eourse no honest person employs them
Some will say that a few short
bundles of the same quality as the long,
nts better around the turns. Oar ad
vice is to pack none, but to let the hogs-
heads be uniform from head to head aud
side to side. In small crops, or where
remnants exist, the rule for packing is
simple. Pack in first all of your best,
then follow it with next grade, and so
on, then a sample will show a fair pro
portion oi each grade, and an honest
ly mixed hogshead will always brini
its full value. J
The Paducah Market has suffered
from the same evil as our own, and to
remedy them, they have in the past
lew months entirely revolutionized
their system, and now guarantee all of
their samples to their buyers.
Cincinnati and Louisville do the
same, and have reaped the advantage
of better prices for their shippers, than
under the old svstem. Lpon this
point we quote from the circular of
Messrs. J. S. Phelps & Co., of Louis
ville, who say ; " One word to our pa
trons after six months experience
under the guaranty system of inspec
tion, we are satisfied, that tobacco sells
for a better price when a hogshead is
guarantied to be equal to the sample,
than under the old system, when there
was no guaranty. We would, there
fore urge our friends never to mix a
hogshead, but to assort closely, put
ting each length, and color and quali
ty together, thus insuring the highest
market price, and leaving no possible
ground for complaint on the part of
Every market in the West has suf
fered from the same ev .1, and each in
turn has found it neces3ary to remodel
its system, and give a more rigid in
spection for the protection of its trade.
Planters and dealers will find there
fore this season, a clone inspection in
every market they may ship to.
Without this reform we may expect
to see the best class of foreign or
ders withdrawn from our markets.
Our remarks are for general appli
cation, personal to no one ; we have
been buying from vour crops for about
twenty years, and nave always sought
to promote the planter's interests, and
a hearty desire for your welfare has
prompted these lines; and for this work
of reformation we ask the full co oper
ation, not only of planters and dealers,
but of warehousemen, inspectors, buy
ers, and all connected witn the trade".
The best results cannot but flow from
it, a restoration of our tobaccos to
their old position on the markets of
the world, a higher appreciation of
their values, and a larger demand for
The whole Western crop is a very
large one, showing greater increase in
other sections, than in our own, we
cannot therefore hope to see such high
prices paid this year.
As low grades will sell much higher
early iu the season, than later on, we
advise our friends to market their lugs
and common leaf, as fast as prizing
seasons permit. .... .
We are truly yours,

A Romance in Real Ltvr Dnr-
ing the past week, a bit of romance has
occurred in the Children's Aid Society,
of New York, which hardly seems to
belong to this matter-of-fact age. TMie
New York Times tells the touching
story as follows:
A number of years since, the reports
of the society gave an account of a
sad event in Brooklyn. A woman had
been murdered by her drunken hus
band, and a kind lady of that city dis
covered three wretched little children
weeping oyer the corpse, two boys and
a girl. They were utterly friendless,
after the arrest and imprisonment of
the father. The two boys were
brought to the newsboys' lodging
house, in New York, and the girl tem
porarily sheltered. At length the so
ciety sent the two lads to homes in the
West, and the girl was adopted by a
gentleman of property, near the city.
The latter never knew that her adopted
father was not her own. The boys
have now grown nnand iicnuired nron

other a farmer. They have been ex

their sister, and have been in corres

visited the city for the first time, very
well-educated young men, in good cir

Lodging-house, the Newsbovs', and
other institutions of the society. The
adopted father of their sister consent

provided they did not disclose then
