From Grave to Gay?From Lively
On a cushion gently sleeping.
With one eye half open peeping,
As though cautious vigil keeping.
Breathing 'twixt a purr and snore,
Curled up nicely lay our kitten,
Such a cosy spot to get in !
Sure she never will he quitting
It to hide behind i lie door.
Answered pussy, ''Nevermore."
Hut aroused from sleep she now is,
For she well knows what the row is,
Yonder loud all?' sharp "bow-wow1' is
One she's often heard before
Then, her utmost Heel ticss stretching,
With a bound she gains the kitchen;
Bruno ! liow's your lime to pitch ill.
Pitch in through the open door,
?piiting puss says, "Nevermore."
Hound aliuut the kitchen, snuffing.
Whining, wheezing, pawing, pulling,
Heedless*of a former cuffing,
He descries, behind the door,
Eyes as bright as those of Juno;
Voice that growls, "Be careful, Uruno !
I have teeth and nails, that you know ?
Teeth and nails at least a score;
And I'll sheath them nevermore.
"Times too often to bear the t- Hing,
Though I've been with anger swelling
When I beard your saucy yelling,
I your insults meekly bore.
But, old growler, let tue warn you;
If no manners I can learn you,
Worry mc again, and dum you !
Y'ou will find your visage sole ?
You'll be handsome nevermore. "
Stung by such a bold defiance,
Thinking he was "up to r.cietiac,"
Placing on his size reti nice
(Bruno always was a "blower.")
''Cat." said he, ' with a!l your bragging,
You will mighty soon be dragging,
Only just "wait for aw.iggiu',
And I'll haul you round the floor."
Muttered pussy, "Ncvcrm re,"
Then I heard a noise appalling ?
Barking, mewing, catei wa iling;
< ertain markets quite forestalling .
"Nails is riz." and so is fur.
Brandished claw the foe opposes :
Torn nntl biecding Bruno's nose is,
And the. "upraised paw illsrtmca
Puss can give him '"tits" encore,
"Thank you. madam : nothing more.
"Seize 'em, Bruno ! bite 'em ! catch "em !
Surely, puppy, you can match 'em,
(Poor o'd doggy ! did she scratch him ?)
Seize her, there behind the door !
Fierce grimalkin quickly track up!
Follow closely the attack up !
Bite her while she's got her back up !
Drag her out upon the floor,"
Answered Bruno, ' No* crmore."
All his surplus steam he b'owa off;
Turns his tail, and quickly goes oflT;
Folds as if iie'd lost his nose off;
.'?Tides hack to his kennel-door.
Puss once more resumes her purl ing,
Wraps her paws her ow'i soft fur in,
Mews, "I'll not again bestirring
Hence to shrink behind the door;
He'll disturb m nevermore."

Fertilizers and the Farmcis?A
New Form of Slavery?Items
Branchvii i.e S. C,
February 26th, 1*79.
Editor I'muyebury Thnrs:
The cotton option question, or the
edict recently promulgated by pin-s
pate i it mopolists, receives the da at!
characterization here that it has met
with throughout the Stale. There
are n<i pa'iins ot praise being chanted
in honor of the disinterestedness of
this e'as8 of people. The farmers
are not of the opinion that they "love
their neighbors as themselves-" The
almighty dollar controls this lore
which they should bestow upon their
fellows. With cheeks oi brass and
hearts of stone, they have no concern
for the working class, except so far as
the labor its members perform inures
to their iiggiaudizem lit. For the
happiness and prosperity per *e of this
portion of the eoininu iity, these in n
care nothing It is the money which
their theil and industry puts into
their pockets for worthless fertilizers,
which elicits their smile or "ho?v d'y
do." They have impersonal concern
for the ui Haie of iu iners. So long
as they tunke enough to pay them for
I their advances they are satisfied.
I They care not for the poverty of their
I homes, the nakedness of theil lani.i-s,
' the hunger of their wives and child
I ron !
Tell ibe slavery is abolished ? I
deny it! That yoke of gigantic
weight is still extant, iu this much
vaunted Republic of freedom.
Universal suffrage I admit obtains
here, but freedom is not its hand
maid. The task-master is still
abroad in the land. With one hnlf
of the fanners tied hand and foot,
freedom cauuot he universal. Tho
galling bondage of debt, secured by
the inexorable lien, or the remorse
less mortgage, has stripped them of
individual independence, and they
are no lunger free! Some of them
have indeed been turned loose from
the grip of conscienceless phosphate
venders, but it was to them the liber
ty of wan t, of wretchedness, of pover
ty and ot desolation. Like, freed >m
to the time-worn slave,
'?A boon 'ti* idle then to gife."
Those who derive comfort, case,
affluence and happiness from this
growing evil, while faring sumptu
ously every day, and robed in purple
and line linen, experience no qualms
of conscience at seeing the sheriff's
hammer fall upon the last grain of
corn of the luckless farmer whoso
crops untovurd seasons blighted. He
failed to make enough cottou to meet
the lien given to his task-master; j
c nsequ iitly his corn, rice, and peas j
must g o. Poor devil ! what feeling s i
has, he that merchant princes care to
respect ? He is oiil)' n machine, de
serving to be looked after otdy to tho
extent of his usefulness. Where he
tails to be lucrative to phosphate
dealers, they lode all solicit u do for
his welfare IIa3 he a homestead, a
?heller for his wife and little ones ?
let him m atch it with Argus eyea, for
even this they would take if they
could, und leave their hitherto faith -
ful slave, homeless, penniless, and
with starvation with all of i*s hide
ous ghastliness staring him in the
Fanners 1 Workingmeu ! is it not
'line Ibr yon tu cmancipato your
selves, your homes and firesides, your
wives and children, front impending
llliu, and poverty with its gnawing
concomitants ? Is the yoke uttder
which you iabor year in and year out
so light that you crave its continu
ance? the bit rden to sweet that you
cannot forego it? Have you no
heart aches, no sighs for freedom aud
independence ? Does it not send
daggers to the heart to see each suc
ceeding year your last pound of cot
ton, und your hist bushel of corn, sold
to satisfy the factor's lien? and this
too while your families are suffering
for the littlo neeessaires of life ? If
this picture represents your condi
tion, is it not time for a chauge of
the programme, shifting of the scenes?
Under such circumstances, should
you not rise up in your might, and
have co-operation and a mere care
ful attention to the economies of agri
culture, invest your calling with the
dignity which belongs to it, make
your own manures, and thereby wipe
from your memory factors' liens and
mortgages? Cooperation amongst
you will beget independence, and
independence will make you important
factors in the progress and advance
ment of South Carolina. But so loag
as you are hampered with liens you
will never be happy yourselves, nor
be in a position to render much ser
vice to your country's march to
Arise, organize, and combine;
throw yourselves as one mau in
antagonism to the heartless combina
tion ol monopolists, who are plotting to
engulf you in inevitable bankruptcy.
There are few farms that will not,
if managed properly produce their
own fertilizers. All they require is I
attention, thrift aud ind istry. Giv j
them these, and the oecupatiou of
jolly, rollicking, happy and dom
ineering factors aud monopolists will

A Low Voice in Woman.
Yea, we ngree with that old poet
who raid that a low, soft, voice was an
"excellent thing in woman.'' Indued,
we feel inclined to go much further
than ho has on the subject, and call it
one of her crowning charms. No
matter what other attractions she
may have; she may bo as fair as the
Trojan Helen, and as learued as tho
famous Hypatia of ancient times; she
may have all the accomplishments
considered requisite at the present
day, and every advantage that wealth
can procure, and yet if sho lacks a
low, sweet voice, sho can never be
really fascinating. How often tho
spell of beauty is rudely broken by
coarse, loud talking. How often you
arc irresistibly drawn to a plain, un
assuming woman, whose soft, silvery
tones render her positively attractive.
Besides, we lancy we can judge of the
character by the voice; the bland
smooth, fawning tones scsm to be
tokcu deceit and hypocrisy as iL
variably ?s tho musioal, aubdued
voico indicate*, genuine refinement.
In the social circle how pleasant it is
to hear a woman talk in that low key
which always characterizes the true
lady. In the sanctuary at homo how
such a voice soothes the fretful child
and cheers the weary husband. How
sweetly its cadence flouts through
the sick chamber and around the
dying bed; with what solemn melody
do they breathe a prayer for the de
parting 80.it I Ah, yes, a low soft
voice is ccnainl y "an excellent thiu^
in wo man."
The South Carolina papers are
making a great mistake when they
point to Georgia to show that repudia
tion does not injure the credit of a
Stale, and their misapprehension is
worth the trouble of a correction, la
point of fact, not a farthing of Geor
gia's debt has ever been repudiated.
A lot of bogus bonds wero issued
under the Republican regime and
placed upon tho market, but those
who purchased them had fair warn
ing that they would never be paid.
There was nothing lookiug like re
pudiation. The State simply refuses
to pay that which it did not owe Wo
would advise the people of South
Carolina to pay their recognized
- ?Ii?.in. .1. ??
A l'ennsyl vnuia man suggests a
novel plan to close bar-rooms. His
idea is for every man that drinks
whisky to make his wife the bar
keeper; to lend her two dollars to buy
a gallon of whisky, and retail it out
to himself at the price \i* is accustom
ed to pay elsewhere. Every gallon
of whisky a man buys at a saloon ha
pays two dollars for the whisky and
four dollars and a half to tho man
who hands it over the counter to him.
By making his wife the bar keeper
this four dollars and a half can be
kept in tho family.
