sure enough he resurrected $25 in silver,

A TIMELY. LETTER TO FARMERS
FROM AN OLD TOBACCO RAISER,
I think'that the cultivation of tobacco
in Western North Carolina is; in danger
of becoming; a curse instead of a blessing.
It seems to me that a majority of the
farmers are neglecting" to produce the
necessary suppMes for their families and
depending- upon making money out of
tobacco to buy these supplies.- Now to-,
collect, my dear friends, that one
bushel of corn at home is worth 'two
abroad. Recollect that meat and bread
are articles that cannot well be lispensed
with. You are bound tol have them
around, or the plough will stop. You
had much better fail in a crop of tobacco
than lo tail to make your aecessary sup
plies. In all my Writing I have urged
you to make all the tobacco ycu t:ould
after making a supply of the necessaries
of life. It is a very shallow theory that
you. can make more money by raising
tobacco than you can by raising orn.
Recollect that the theory if followed by
every one would raise the price of corn
beyond your reach and that you would
soon have it so that it would take a hun
dred pounds-of tobacco to buy a bushel
of bread stuff. Now take my advice, if
you have to curtail any crop Jet it be to
bacco, and above all things have enough
provisions made at home for your wife
andlittfe ones. They can't do without
them; they can do without tobacco. Let
your new land be planted in tobacco the
rt vear. Thtin so- fov.n 'in whif-at
and clover. Do not go 111 debt for meat,
bread, fertilizers, clothes, i sugar, coffee
and everything, and depend upon a to
bacco crop to pay for them. You will
miss it in the end.. Mark my prophecy !
The' only prosperous farmer is he who
makes his own supplies. , Eeed a word of
warning from one who has always tried
to advise you for your good.

The Castata To-Night. : - y
Our community will to:night be treat
ed to an entertainment of a most' pleas
ant character, and we hope to see the
Opera-House filled to witness it. The
musical department will embrace some
of the finest talent in our midst, and the
display of rich costumes in the different
tableaux scenes will lend much interest
to the occasion. The whole, affair has
been under excellent managemont, and
we know those who may attend cannot
fail of being pleased. - -; r
The Tobacco Market To-Day. ...
"The breaks in all of the warehouses
this morning were quite large, in conse
quence of the past few damp days, but
the quality of tobacco was somewhat in
different. The prices obtained were
good, however, ranging as high as flO
per hundred.- It is evident that the best
quality of last year's crop is still in the
barns.' ' y ' '''.'
' Mr. Lee Ramsey, of Ramsey yille, Mad
ison county, reports tobacco prospects
throughout his section as very promising,
the plants being very gx)d and plentiful;
and the increase in acreage will be large.
He also reports wheat as looking well,
much better "than expected iu his imme
diate section, but in the Ivy section only
looks tolerable. . . . -
Our friends are respectfully requested
to send us notes cf accidents, or other
events occurring in their respective
neighborhoods.' Send" promptly. The
Citizen- must be a correct and prompt

' ; . 'AVAsnisGTos, Apr. 21, 3 p. m. I
. . The decision of the Supremfl Court,
rendered yesterday in the Virginia Cou
pon . causes, declares unconstitutionJ
and void the legislature of the State of
Virginia refusing to receive the coupons
of State bonds, as provided in the adjust
ment of the State debt of l&GdJO. The
decision causes much excitement. What
effect It may have , in Virginia is only!
conjecture. Much apprehensioii -ia felt
in that State over the decision,' - It is be
lieved the next Virginia legisUlure, h ; w
ever composed, will tike steps to prevent
the carrying out of the decision. - :-
