Editor of the Journal:
Will you allow m spaco inl your
paper for a fow wor(s. Perhaps,
som11 of our old Carolina frionds
would liko to know something
about this part of Texas. WO can
toll them that .tho land is good
here, very productivo, ospecially in
0h valloys-that is what is called
the Cross-timberod country of Tox
as. Pooplo aro sottlhd very thick
in this part, and wo think somo
good poople here. Farming is dono
very dif'oront here, farmers break
- their land with two-horso turning
plows, plaint their corn and cotton
with cultivators woll. WO muist
toll our friends that this country
for farming wo don't think can be
be excolled. A ian can tako two
horses and tend from 50 to 80 acres
of land. Vegetation grows of' vory
fast, everything looks flattering inl
this part of Texas at this time.
Wo would 1o glad to know somio
thing about politics in old Caroli
ln, and who will ho the next Gov
ornor? Wo think South Carolina
is ill tho lead for Reform; politics
is thn great talk of the day, men
aro fighting for- Reforni, and they
mean to lavo it; the laboring 111on
of Toxas realized a long timo ago
that thoro was something wrong
with the government, and they are
S not satisfied to havo any more
Grover Clovelands forced upon
them for President, and they be
I ievo. that a single gold standard is
tho signature of the cotton produ
3 cer, selling it for loss than 6 cents
por pound, and so can everything
olso the farmer has to sell, will bo
down inl proportion. Toxas is a
good country-sho o w n s over
'7,000,000 hond of cattlo and sho
has millions of acres of land pro
ducing [nothing but grass, wh ich
grow inl groat abundance, and thesO
cattlo food upon the grass, and the
poople of this country know that
i 6 cont cotton will forco them, as
the prico of all products go down
and their demands for nionoy just
the samo, to decroaso the number
of their stock and plow up the
grass which they nowv food upon,
an0d raiso moro cotton at loss prieo,
and wo believo that 6 cont cotton
will ruin every country, and that
it will dispossess the farmer of
this country of his stock and causo
him to havo to plow up his grass
and plant his soil in cotton and
corn, than greator room vill bo
given for the farmer to hear the
cry of ever produlction. T1hbon un
dor this condition of affairs the
farmer will be takent in to the bees
which fill their gum full 'of honey
to meltC down and dirown them
selves with. They are accused of
boing very lazy ini tho sprinig andl
industrious in thle fall. They hoar
the cry of over production, and we
wold he glad to have 80omo one to
. xlplain to us what is the matter.
Theso part ies areoI lke Poter of old,
thieir1speech bet rays t hem. Somel
of them like to boast Of living iln
such a grandl coun try, and( it, being
the wvealthiost in the wvorld, yet she
can't he inldepenldent enough to
make her own monev. We think
it v'ery st range why some1 (of 0our
host men(1 will sullf'r thomiselvyes led
linl y to the hal11lot box and1( vote
righlt against their own interest.
T1ho time is at hand1( when overy
good citizen of our contry should1(
lay asido( all prejdic andiO01( 'onisid
or the issues of the (lay. What aire
they? -Our conn try is flooded withI
tramps that are out of omploy
mont. T1hie political wvov is as
high as she has over been knoewn;
1m011n're flocking to the great capi..
toi of' our country by the thlousand1s
to stand with oultstotcheod hainds
and boeg for relief, yet Congroess is
unimanaiuble and( turns a deaf oar to
the pleadling of' the peopleo; we be
liovo t here aire SOm~o good men11 in
Congress, and weo)0 eve that South
Carolina has got them, and~ wo
hope relief will como1 yet, and the
lab~oring man11 will again star't up
the ladder of p)rosperi ty.
