OUR CIT 'pIBYDrk
have raised their voices at times
in lamentation over the requests of
their "country cousins" to purchase
various small items, and have ex
pressed their surprise that people
should be so inconsiderate as to
make such demands on their time.
To hear them, one would suppose
that they had not a moment in the
day, to spare from their pressing
.duties, thJ. a request to select a
1Idress pattern, or a pair of shoes,
involved a strain on their physical
and in mntal ability, that was appal
ling to contemplate. The hearer
of their remarks would be justified
in supposing, that they spent most
of their time in carrying out such
requests,, and that instead of its
being a rare occurrence. it was a
wholesale business with then. It
might also be supposed that they
never put their country friends to
ally troubl'e, made no dem:ands on
their couitesy and patience, in short
that they were a s.et of self-sacri
ficing victims, to ;ai overstrained,
sensle of the v!ligatiwlo of friendo
.Has it ever lpnetra''dl the en
velop of selfishness with which
these grunmblers have encasetd
themselves, that they are under
some obligations to thie troublesome
country friends? That they have
been taken in and entertained, for,
perhaps, days at a time? Or have
they been so well treated that
they thought they were con
ferring a favor, instead of re
ecttilg one when staying in the
country? It is a small return to
select for their enxtertauners a shade
dribbon or mstuh a piece of edging.

But that is not the way of the coun.

are going to stay with them, they
rak their brain and generally their
purses to provide such eatables as
can possibly be -rocared, give

The election of a Senator will
Imost likely have taken place before
this issue of the Tuxes is out, but
the sentiment. express.ed by the
Democratic Review, ought not to
be accepted a. good reasons for the
selection of Mr. Jonas to fill that
important posttion. His gettiing
there in the first instance, was an
accident. He was not the strong
e.st m-an before the legislature, and
while he has undoubtedly proved
himself to be a good man to repre
sent this rtate, the samne can be
said for Mr. Eustis, who has had
somte experience in that line also.
Mr. Jonas' best friends cannot claim
justly that he is the superior of Mr.
Eustis in ability or anything else,
and when the Democratic Review
asert. that the supporters of Mr.
Eustis are the ring joliticians it
clearly means that he is the faIvur
ite of the regulars. If such i" the
fact, that he is the favorite of the
regulars and Mr. Jonas is not, the
TimEs goes on record right here. as.
supporting Mr. Eus.tis, and if Mr.
Jones is not in sympathy u ith the
regulars, the TmIts is opposed to
Mr. Jonas right along.
It has however never been gen
erally accepted, that the Democrat
ic Review is authorized to make
any such issue, and it is not at all
likely that Mr. Jonas desires.,uch
an issue made. The Tmins is not
opposing Mr. Jonas by any means,
but if that issue is made you can
make a mark right hgrc. Mr. Eustis
has a record that is plenty good
enough; and Mr,. .Jol ..h. no ad
vmaage. of hiM in ;that respect.
but if it is a questlom of regulars or
anat-regulars, jst put the Tixs

A UIPELESS CASB,
The Journal of last week estain
ed an artiele which was preoumably
intended as an answer to the ar
raigument of Luens, Crandell .&
Co., in the Tixniof May 3. Aa
specimen of the answer the fotlow
ing extract from the artieleia pt-en:
. As to the charge of orgahnziug ue?
gro clubs, made against Mr:R. K.
Boney,candidatefor the leis lture;
and the circular which is .said to
have been distributed among the
negroes, we have heard neither of
these re~ior . qubstantiated, and
therefore incline to the opinion that
they M.i simply bare.h'sertIons.
Khow any one can fail to know be
yond any posibility of doubt, that
the charge quoted above is true, is
marvelous. .The red circular was
the talk of the parish, and no sane
man doubts who caused it to be
circulated; as a matter of fact, it can
be easily proved, who had it riren
lated. The absence of all knowl
edge on these two subjocts betrays
a density of ignorance utterly in
comprehensible, and time spent in
arguing against it, is time wasted.
The TIME.s gives it up, the case is
hopeless, and past help. The TIs a
is from this on an earnest believer
in the necessity of national .aid to
publie scehools, and plenty of it.

White labor Ma e Fe mes.
The South Carulina Board of Ag
riculture and the Charleston News
and Courier have lately devoted
much attention to the subject of
labor in that State, particularly col
ored labor. The question.is to
which system of working is the best,
wit 0th. nagro, is a problem that
.has-,lcear- much diseussed in the
ýSutb:4uring the last fifteen yeasn,
and on which even yet there is a
wide- difference of opinion. The
investigation of the Sputh Carolina
boardishgcte much Jight l4a tiii.ub
jectl . The bulk of the agricultural
labor in that State is colored. In
what is known as the white counties
the fan labor is 45 per cent, white;
in the negro counties on the coast
it is 15 per cent, white, and 85 per
cent, colored, giving a total for the
whole State of 30 per cent, of white
farm labor, and 70 ler cent, colored.
The farms owned and worked
exclusively by colored Ipuople are
almost universally returned as in
ihad condition, though in all the
counties there are a few exceptionial
colored farmners who are said to be
successful and thriving, and in one
or two counties, notably in York,
the coloredland'bwner is said to be
quite successful as a rule.
Fanns owned by white proprie
tors and and trorked with hired
labor as a rule, in most of-the coun
ties, are returned as not in as good
condition as small farms owned and
worked by the white farmers and
their famnnilies. There are excep
tions in some of the counmtles, how
ever, where'these plantation farms
are said to be the most suessful
of all. The condition of colored
farmers as land owners is almost
universally reported as much bet
ter than a tenants. As tenants the
colored farmers in nearly every
county are returned, as a rule, as
not'making progress, as not saving
money, and not acsqiriag land.
