What is the matter with our Jalappa sub
scribers ? nine out of ten complain weekly of not
gittidg the paper, when it is regularly sent. It
is very unpleasant, and we are almost tempted to
go up there and straighten the settlement. Fan
cy the printer's feelings, friends, and settle upon
some careful person to take charge of the pack
age, or, or, 'by the heavens that's above us all,
we'll 'trash somebody for dat' yet.
With this No., June 21,
Closes the term foi- which many of our readers
subscribed to the Herald, consequently this will
be the last papet they will receive, unless their
subscription is renewed: Our terms are strictly
in advance, and ee wish it understood that the
paper cann^ot be sent 'ut unless paid for, no mat
ter how good the part.y is, or how able to pay at
remote periods. The cash system is the b'est, and
the only system by which a newspaper can be
sustained, and we beg our friends if they wish to
continue to bea,r this. in mind; that all names
will be stricken out as the time expires, without
respect to individuals. The cross mark shoirs
when the subscription expires.
In inswer to correspondents as to what the
terms are, we respectfully inform them' that. for
$1 1 specie, or $1.56 in provisions, .(at market
prices)such as corn,flour and meat, &c-,paid in ad
vance, they will receive the paper for the text
eix months, not 'otherwise' Subscriptions receiv
ed'for three months.

A Detachment of the 9th Ohio Troop~s

tle stir was exhibited by the colored populati9n,
who swarmed these visitors like bees aro-und a

It Wil interest our-readers to know that as soon
as the necessary arrangements can be made, we
will crmence the publication of a large,.FREE
Weekly paper, in the hope to meet the demand
constantly made upo> us, for a paper that costs
nothing, end that subscribers to our PAYING
paper will have the satisfaction of reading and
keeping theirs, and also that having -regular pa
trons to'our Free paper, we can by mailing it,
save the subscriber the necessity of continually
asking for one, which must be mortifying. It will
be a saving too of much valuable time,which the
patron will appreciate.' Our time and patience is
not thought of for a moment. Its a great pleas.
ure to be generous and free to a whole-souled;
hearty, 'round-faced farmer, :cho bonhces in with
a double chin, whistling perhaps, because his
stomach is happily filled, and in the best of goGd
humors asks 'for an old, paper with the latest
news, that is, one you've done reading." Wlr,?
modesty, and how considerate,.an 'old paper,' dI
ready read. Again we have complaints that cr
tain sections receive not a sirgle paper, 'and f$r
themselves would like to have the news; havr'
seen a paper in a month.' Well, its our business
to supply that man, or. such meu, with a free p
per, and we'll do it, of course. Happy inn.
cence ! tiey believe that a printer lives on his
imagination, his neighbor's gas, on air, or any
thing else than bread aiid meat, that labor i;
sweet and a rare pleasure, and 'that it is so easy
to-print.' Who could colscientiously dispel sue}
a delusion by clarging such a maD for a jtaper
Not we,no never. So we'll do it, if wn break
trace, that'is when the necessary arrangement
're made. It is hoped that our paying subscri
bers will renew promptly, and aid us iri so iuda
ble an undertaking, and they must when told fo;
