They say that this is no country for
Gortans; that we think more of

them the preference. There is no
triuti i4 such an assertion, of
course. The trouble with these fel
lows is that when they come to
America they think it is a free man's
< o-mti y and that everybody is to live
alike. They must take the country
as they find it. If they can't get
cake they must content themselves
with coin-bread until they have
saved enough from their earnings to
indulge in luxuies. A negro will live
on a peck of meal, three pounds of

farmers expect to get white men
and women to work farms, and live
on "a peck of meal, three pounds of
meat and a quart of molasses a
week," they may as well at onco re

negroes, doing hatlf wvork, anid,
unless converted, voting yeoar i and
year out to rob themz of their s.~

South Carolina leamrn that educated
and enlightened whito labor from
Europe must be trealted with con
sidertion, they cannot expect to
induce iammigrants to come here.
An inferior laborer, who dloes half
work relimetantly, may subsist on a

and superior white labor can do0

Pickings sand stealings the honest

than labor at the South is usually

facts. If the peoplo of Oarolina
want to induce intelligent, educated
workmen to settle here, let them
establish a thrifty peasantry by
diiding their lands into small
far'ms and ront them to competent
anid safe tenants, or sell alternate
tract~ to settlers on' time at low
pricea. Bly filling up the country
they will create a demand for hand
and a imrket fom' ifs produce. We
have ai remarkably fine climate and a
soil, that wsth proper preparation is
very productive. Pop~ulationl will

The hair is a beautiful ornament

by no means the most preferable ;
but in the time of Elizabeth it found
ardent admirers, and was hi fashion.
Mary of Scotland, though she had
exquisite hair of her own, wore red
fronts. Cleopatra was red-haired

burned in the house. Malachi is a
thorough Democrat: hence this
spite against him.

T HE Commissioner of Agriculture, in
his report for the fiscal year 1875,
speaks as follows:
"There can be no doubt of tho general
,adulteration of all malt liquors. JJgpg
ia-iltids are impos;ed. nnl an increasing
vigilance practiced to detect and punish
such frauds, by a system of inspection of
all malt liquors mfaiufactured beforo ex
)ose(l to sale, the practice is very com
mon. How much more in this country,
shere there are no liws on the subject,
and no oflieer to carefully analyze the
prodntls of the brewey? Some years ago,
Professor Nlapes, of Naw York, analezed
the beer fromi a dozen dir'oront brewerie,,
en-l all were fouind adulterated with niox
ions sub~stancees, It is said that the salie
of drugs to brew---rs is a proitable p~art of
the traelo. Th'iis is perfectly infamous.
Coeciulus indicius, tishi-b'erry) nlux
vomnica (dog-button ' from w hichi strych
-nine is obtained, areosomec of ther deecota
bles substancea foundi in beer! These are
poteit p)oi--ons, and the brewer found
using them should be drowned at once
in one of his ow-n vats, The Uiritish Par
Iliament paissed a law to prevent this
nefariious business. Tihec following1 is an
extract: 'No dru'gist, rendor of or d' a!
crin drugs, or cheist, or any other pin
son, shall sell or deliver to any licensed
bsrewer. dealer in or retailer of beer,
knowing themu to be suoi, or shall sell or
deliver to any person on account of, or in
trust for, any such brewer dealer or re
tailer, any liquor called byv the nameo of or
sold for coloring, from whatever material
the samne mayv be made; or any material
or preparation -thier than ungroundl
brown malt, for the darkening the color
of worts beer, or any molasses, vitriol,
honAy, qulasma. cocculbis indieus, grains
of para1dise, Guinea prupper, or o -hun, or
any extract or preparaitIion of molasses, or
any articlo or preparation to be used iu
worts beer for or as a substitute for malt
or hopa; and if any druggist shall offejnd
in any of these particulars, such prep~ara
tion, &c., shall be forfeited, and may be
seized by any othie~r of excise, andl the
person so oflhnd ing shall forfeit five hun
d red poundls.'
"Under this law, very many druggists
and brewers were brought to grief, and
yet the' practice continues. Unless the
American public are reaidy to admxit the
-imnacu late purity and innoc~ nee of
American brewers, they musst ho content
while drinking their beer to cherish the
belief that they are at the same time
guzzhing seome narcotic poison or damnag
ing medicine. In view of the unproce
dented growth of the barley crop; of the
great increase of the numnber of mahters
and brewers; of the vast unlanown guali
ties of beer that arp drunk in every city
and almost every town ,in the continent,
It isabe dictatn of sound wisdom that the
attention of legislators should be called to
the subject of the adulteration our malt
liqniors, and severe wpnalties should be
nfitdas a. preventivo."
