The severity of some of the e hwa was doubt
less due to tho rude times iu which they were en
acted, and we wil, not shock the sentimental hn
inanitariauism of the day by saying thit they
should be adopted as applicable to the case or the
liberated slave, of the South. But we invite the
well-informed and the thoughtful of the North, as
well as the South, to apply themselves to the solu
tion of the great problem, what regulation* will
suffice to protect socie y from the indolence' the
pauperism, the vices and crimes of those who, by
ns1 uie. abhor labor, have little or n> respect for
virtue. I'ttle or no rsveiencc for law, aod whose
highest pleasure is the indulgence of physical ap
petites and passioos. Nay, we invite this contem
plation. in behalf of the freed slaves themselves,
who, unless cared for by compulsory legislation,
are doomed to auch sntfeiing as no race has ever
yet experienced. Without labor they cannot live
iu this country, as they are able to do from the
natural fraitaof the earth in the West Indies and
In Africa and without compulsion in sime form
they will not labor. All the lectures aod Invo
cations of " moral suasioniat*" will not induce
them to do it. ‘ Aitra live labor” has alight at
traction for them. * Demand and supply" is a
rule as l.ttle understood or cared about by them
is logarithms or Sanscrit. Can they be induced
to work by the simple offer of wages 1
The London Times, that had powerfully te
sted in bringing about emancipation in the
British West India Islands, was forced, after an
experience of twenty five years to make the fol
lowing admissions. It said
. There is no blinking the truth. Year* of bit
ter experience; yean* of boie deferred; of ae f
devo.ton unrequited, of poverty , of humiliation;
of prayers unanswered ; of sufferings derided : of
insults ua.eseuled; of contumely patiently endu
red hive convinced us of the truth. It must be
spoken out loudly and incgeticallv, despite the
wild mockings of 'howling cant.' The freed
West India Bluve will not till the s il for wages ;
the free son of the ex-slave is as obi Unate as hi*
.ire He will not cultivate Unde whica be has
not bought for hit own. Y .ms, mmgots Mid
plantains-these satisfy his wants; he .ares not

diameter, is then cut in the centre of the paper,
and the gl as is placed on thiee brick* over a
plate filled with beer sugar and a little ruin, a
moderate distance from the infested spot. The
eOect Is magical; in a few hours the glass is cram

match, made by dpplug brown paper into melted

tbe seen' of ths rum is sure to induce the most
fastidious wup to enter, as no Insect can resist Its

Deab Sir --I lave been afflicted many years IfJ
with severe prostrating cramps in my limbs, cold y
feet and hands, and a general dlsorderaa system.
Physicians and medfeine failed to relieve me,-**.
Some fr ends in New York, who were nejng Platj- '
tation Ritters p>evuil«3i upon me to try them. I
commenced with a small wine glasslui after din-,
ner. Feeling fetter by degrees In a tew day* I I
was rstonished to find the coldnesa and cramps
had ent relv left me. and I roold sleep the night
through, which I had not done f r yean. I le#i j

have also greatly improved by the use of the
Plaatation Bitten. "
