Stonewall Jackson, who has re
turned from her recent Northern
trip, writes a card to-day in re
ply to comments from the South
ern press upon her accepting the
hospitality of Governor Ben, But
ler. She says: "'While in Boston
we were entertained at a hotel and
(lid not cross the threshold of Gov.
Butler. Justice compels me to
say that 1he was wanting in no
courtesy to the guests of his State.
The people of Boston and of every
point we yisited in the North cer
tainly gave evidence that my hus
band's name was held in such hon
or and reveren6e that my heart
could not but be touched with ten
der and grateful emotion. I was
told that they admired him for
this, his moral grandeur, his exal
ted piety, that he was the bravest
man the war produced on either
side, and that they were proud of
him as an American citizen, &c.
Surely, there must be enough of
chivalry and right feeling on the
part of all true Southerners to
cast no blame upon me for having
been the means of evoking such
sentiments as these, and while ev
ery instinct of my nature is loyal
t3 and devotion to the South I can
testify that there are many excel
lent Christians at the North who
are anxious to blot out all the sec
tional differences and extend to us
the love and kindness which make
a nation that happy people whose
God is love.''-Philadelphia (Pa.)
FURMAN' ARMING IN CAROLINA.
-A good ceal has been said in
our columns lately about the exten
sive system of farming pursued by
Mr. Farish Furman, of Georgia,
and on a trip to Cabarrus County
the first part of this week this
writer saw a practical demon
stration of its wonderful results.
Mr. Ervin Harris, a young farmer
of Poplar Tent, became interested
in the accounts of Furman's ext en
sive system and concluded to try
it. lie selected an acre of ground
which he planted in cotton after
Furman's plan. IHe put on this
acre of ground 1,200 pounds of
compost. The early season was
bad and the cotton did not get a
good stand, but, this fact to the
* contrary notwithstanding, he will
make fully three bales from this
* ~ one acre. The cotton is nebk
high to a man and there are from
fifty to seventy-five bolls to the
stalk. Mr. Harris never hoed the
cotton, but ran a plow through to
cultivate it. lie is so wvell pleased
with the result that next year he
* will, he says, cultivate as much
land as his means will allow under
this intensive system. It is simn
ply wonderful and with these pr'ac
tical results before their eyes, it
will not be long until all our far

R ANDALL IN CLEvELAND.-Cleve-.
land, 0-, October 6.-lion. Sam
uel J. Randall, addressing a demo
cratic meeting to-night, said the
tendency of the republican party
is a consolidation of the govern
ment approaching a monarchy.
The democrats favor the distribu
tion of power and oppose centrali
zation because it is dangerous and
imperils the right of the people.
As a democrat I favor the total
abolition of the Internal Revenue.
There is no occasion for the exist
ing Internal taxation. We do not
need the money. The surplus
each year about equal the amount
collected that way.
