Should any conflict come up on one of ll.eso contractu, the partira would iind that they could not tiiko nmt tora for granted in the legal coii atriiction of the contract, but would W bound by what was tl o actual contract. There beiiij three rela tion that moat commonly cxiat in onr planting Intermit betweeu the owner ol tho soil and the labor lene in inuking crojip, of apeeial inn leiwt at this time. These nro that of landlord HUIt(nant,pmtner. and mag Itr oimI servant, or, as termed in our giatute, employer and iHbmer. a ml thenu in under each relation certain fixed rules of law laid down in gov erning the const ruction of tho con tructj, diflering from ueh other, The present importance of under standing 'bene, relationship!!, to our planters and merchant is duo to the lien laws for collection of rent, part the eiop"nnil supplies furuihod. .We have fully explained tho rela tionship i landlord and tenant in our former article, and to a great extent that of employer ami laborer. Tho terms einp'oyer and laborer is on Innovation upon that of master and servant, and in many respect annlairous to it. We referred to thin important relations-nip in our firit irticle, and gave the full text of the Act of tho Legislature of April .r, 1872, in rclerciico to this subject. It is only necessary to add, to have ft proper understanding of this rela tionship, that the great majority of contracts in this country, we bo licvo,are intended to be of this class. That the laud owner intends in tho making of the contracts to own the entire crop, paying a certum per ccitngo of tho crop us wages for the labor done in "making, saving, hand ling and transportation," of the crop, and that there is no intention to create a partnership between tho parties. Yet in many ontracts thorn is no definite understanding as to the relationship existing, und a court of luw would have to determine the nature of the contract from tho language of the contract and from the acts ot the parties iu carrying it out. There are soma nice distinctions j of law between the terms mtieter j mm servant, and employer and la- lorer, which an by no means well ettled and defined. It may woll bo said that the relationship of employ cr and laborer may exist in till con tracts for hire of personal service, )nt not that of master and servant, fini It is exceedingly difficult to draw Jjje line of distinction. How ever, this cW not matter iu refer ence to our bite lien law, for tho ternii in this law covers both rela tions. Tho terms ot a contract gov ern Hi construction, and any of these three relationship may b created at tie plcasur of the parties by mu tual CIMIftUt, .

The terms of a contract showing the intention of the purties, govern and determine the relationship ex isting between tho parties, and in the making of a contract, each party must fully foment to make it bind ing. So that a planter mav form n partnership with his hands to make a crop upon certain terms, thereby binding in any way they mayagicp, tho respective partners, and tho ef fects of the partnership. A plmitcr may enter into n contract to furnish bind, loams, feed, (arming imple ments, provisions, etc., and to give the other parties a certain pin t of tho net proceeds ol tho crop after pay ing all expense, the said advances being made us a pin t (,f the rnpttnl furnished to make tho crop, aim not as a snbseiiu'nt liability as un indi vidual member. Wo think that such advances would have to be paid in the settle ment of the firm business in prefer ence to any outside liability or an- signmcnt made by the laborers, pro vided the terms of the contrail only gave the luborois aa interest in the net proeee.ls. In this kind ot a partnership thoro is a joint owner ship of tho crop, and either party bus a right to hold ami control i!, and one party cannot tako tho pro perty from the other by process of law. In a joint tennncy there is unequal interest iu the property, but with no Joint liability for tlie nets ot other parties, there being no joint liabili ties as in a partnership between them, each holding subject to the claim of tho other, but individually. This relationship is but seldom crea ted in farming transactions, and used not bo rclerrod to further." Kvery person who iutendsto farm should clearly understand what cons truct be make with reference there to. The hind owner must deter- '"'"o whether ho wishes to rent, "' Innds for n part uf the crop or fixed wages, or to create, n partner ship. If be rents his lends, then he becomes a landlord, und his rights accrue in such, and ho must draw bit contract as a landlord. If be wants to hire bauds to work his land for w ages, he must state in his contract tb relationship existing of employer and laborer, and the amount, whether a part of the crop or fixed sum iu money, to be paid the laborer as compensation for the labor don in, "making, aueiny, miij ling or trantoiiing" said crop. lf ha w ishes to form a partnership with his bands, then be must so draw tho contract as to create this relationship, and knowing tlie re sponsibilities existing iu partner !' ; !

In s recent esse decided in New York, il whs held that u reporter to a news paper was a privileged person from arrest or detention in going into any and all kinds ol society in the pur suit of his business. Is it right, then, you good old sage, heads ot fiinilios, to condemn editors of news papers as being immoral, iiitempcr ate, licentious nnd corrupt, because their papers contain the pasmug news of tlie day gathered from all grades of society ? Wo think not, nnd only the bigoted or hy pocrites will dure givo such judgment. TiiK Legislature of this Sute will open the regular session for this year on Tuesday next, and there is little certainty of calculating wbt.n the session vill close In lonnor years, before tho State fell into Radical bimds, tho business ot each term was dispatched iu from f iurtosix weeks, and each ot tho members wna anx ious to close the term and return to his homo ; but such is not the case now with tho majority who con trol this body. Many members have no occupation or home, and are fur hotter situated when nt .Itukson drawing their per diem and board ing nt places th.it givo them better fare than they get at homo, und it is not strange that theso men nro loath to vote for an adjournment, as it stops their rations und opportunity for speculation. Tho Inst session of tho Legisla ture, taking tho nets of the session in mass, wns characterized by n laud able spirit of reform and retrench ment, nnd but few bills passed that wen objoctiunab'c to tho taxpayers, but whether the same spirit will govern at this session is a question that wo cannot answr. We car only bopo that the intelligent olais of Republicans will not be lead into extreme measures, but hold a wiso balance of power over tho radical measures of kith parties. There has been no time sitce the war that there has been tho same opportunity for the wisdom of att ue, earnest, conciliatoryy spirit con trolling public sentiment among tho Republican party as at this time. Tho tremendous victory achieved iu the late presidential campaign gives member of that party that assur ance of support that is well calcu lated to promote in tho minds of honest men a desire to retain the good will of the people. The victo ry taught this further lesson, that there was unwarrantable power ex ercised by public oflicials, ami cor ruption and bribery in high positions that must bo removed and the party purged of all such oQonces.
