Its sweetness far inure rich and rare.

Out of a heart all full of grace,
Clave never forth its full pei fume

Till! POLL TAX.
Twelve colored men, who wore eon
lined in jail by trial justices for fail
lug to pay their poll law were brought
before .Judge I'rcsslcy yesterday
'morning on n writ of habeas corpus.
The Court ordered the discharge of
the prisoners on the ground thnt the
Act prescribing imprisonment for
non-payment of poll tax is unconstitu
tional. The judge said, in delivering
the judgment of the court : The
poll tax is a debt, ami the eoiiSlitii
tion expressly forbids imprisonment
for del it; It is entirely dillerenl from
imprisonment for non-p^ymeiil id*a
license, because, in that ease, the
party failing to take (,ut a license is
not imprisoned for I he debt but for
'carrying on business without a
The Constitution further provides
thai the penalty fur lion payment id'
taxes shall be cipinl, und under ibis
net the poor man w ho fails In pay his
pull tax is subjected to Imprisonment,
while the man of pr ipevty who fails
tp pay his laxes is subjected to an
entirely tlill'eroiit kind of punish men I.
It has come w ithin my personal
knowledge that the trial justices of
this county have dune all in their
power to demoralize the poor laborers
of this county. These poor men. who
should be working in the Heids Id
raise their crops, are kept (lodging
about in the woods or confined with
in the^wnlls of n jail by the county
trial justices. This works a hard
ship not only upon the laborers them
selves, but upon t he planters who arc
dependent upon them for labor.

on the above subjcel and heartily en
dorses his views, complimenting him
highly on the manner mid thorough

valuable information for the public.
I Mr. Noufler is opposed lot he imini

There is no subject so important t?>
