Salutatory.
In assuming the chiur-editorial, so gracefully
vacated by our predcccssor last week, it is of
course meet that wo should exchange
salutations with the patrons of the Prem, and
indicate the ecneral nrlneinlp* flint t?:n j:-??
our course.
Although wa are not of those who eeom to
regard the life of an Editor loss favored than
that <tr any other profession, still we aro aware
that attached to such a position are labors and
responsibilities that may well move the stoutest
heart to trembling. And csj>ccially <lo we
know that the. ebair of the printer-editor is devoid
of velvet ease; Hence labor and care
will not come upon us unawares, and we shall
assuredly meet 'the responsibility with stout
hearts, if not with string arms. The smiles of
Providence, the approval of friends, and a liv>
- ing remuneration .for our toil, are all the rewards
we seek?all we hope to obtain.
Our design in thb-future conduct of the rrcu
trill be to render as acceptable a District
JOutaal.as any in us State ; and to this end
toxrar general to eschew lengthy
disOohrete.onXorejgn eUbjccLsi and keep, an

C*old?a Memories.
This, out first paragraph for the J'rtin, is
rfrittan with flna fold pap, a praeont from
onr aataenad friend And former neighbor, D.
Vi H*w*ho*k, of Dne West
A pen and scissors are two indispensables to
mi editor. The firtt especially should be a
;ood article?ono that glides smoothly across
the sheet, and that will retain a sufficient
quantum of ink to jot down several lines at
i>nee without returning to the iuk-bottlc. Such
a ono is that wo now hold. It will not however
glido along all tho while without cessation ;
for sometimes tho ideas stop and who could
blame a pen for tardiness >vlicn the power that
moves it refuses to act ?
But we said an editor's pen should be a good
one. Who could maintain his good humor
when trying to write with a mcau pen f and of
all inert perhaps the oditor has most :<ced of all
the appliances to induce an even and good.tem-)
per. It is bis vocation to -write of men and'
things; and if anything disturbs his mental
equilibrium and "raises liis dander," ho is very,
apt to speak more harshly than he would doBiro
to do. Perhaps our friend Hawthorn
knew something of the irascibility of our nature,
and knowing a good pen would aid in
rendering 'diX* prospective labors more agreeablo
to ourselves and more tolerable to others,
kind\ ietermined to put an instrument into
our hands that would cut Bmoothly.
May our pen last a hundred years, and the
donor as long, and every time we sco it may
we gratefully remember him as tho ono who
first threw h. golden light o'or the path we have

Tiik Crops.?From what wo can learn from
our farmers and planters, the crops of this District
bid fair to lie abundant, '1 lie late rains,
however, have given the weeds some advantage,
ns the ground is too wet in many places to
allow of plowing. Wheat looks fine wherever
sown on laud of sufficient strength to produce
it at all. We have heard many farmers say
that it promises to bo the finest wheat crop
grown in this District for ninny ycari Oats

wheat crop is pretty good, and very little Injured

of rest in the wheat. Corn and cotton
are growing finely, and wo have lately had a
