Wewishto all our readers a merry,
The Year 1886.
This year, with its trials, its hopes and
its disappointments, will soon be relega
ted to the past. The cotton crop, ln this
perish at least, has long since been pick
ed ut, corn and potatoes have been hoe
sed and sugar boiling about over. ComI
plaint is very general at theb poor out
come of the year's labors. Owing to
the unfavorable seasons experienced, the
cotton crop has proved a failure, corn
sad potatoes less than an average ad
the sugar yield unsatactory (anad that
manfacturing n open kettle) of inferior
quality, with consequent low prices in
We know of many eases of able bodied
laborers, who have realised from their
cotton less than Ave hundred pounds in
the seed and from other crops in propor
Much sbuering among the people will 1
consequently be the result; the obliga
tions entered into by many, cannot poe
ibly be thlled and it will be a bard
struggle with them to tide over the in
terval between this and the next crop.
A few divdual In this commurnty
may have prosperedina measure. It is
those, who, by iron bound contracts,
have secured, at the commencement ot
the year, mortgages on the crop, stock,
utensils and all else of value belonging
to partieswh, at such sacribes have
attainaed from them slight advances In
money and provisions. Such transac
tlons are suicidal and mt, In the end,
prove disastrous to our platlngtereste
and msany of our farmers will ee their
places pass into the hands of these Shy
We believe, therefore, that hI order to
save their property anad to become lade
dent our planters should scrupulously
avoid all suac contracts; They should
pracice the greatest economy and by
devoting more time and labor to the
raisg o food crops and less to sugar
and cotta, they ould live at very little
expense. By as means, let them
avoi all ownes cotrats: or reek eon
tracts willnla the end lead to much Ill
feeling and may eventually be the ease
