CLOSING OUT THE CENSUS.
-Cost of the Work-Total Population

WASHINGTON, November 18.-The
Superintendent of the Census, in hi8
annual report to the Secretary of the
Interior, says that with the exception
of obtaining statistics of ship build,
ing, the qaarrying industry, produc
tion of petroleum and resources of J
Alaska, the field of work of the ninth
^emoTs^-is-now practically finished
Their labors will be completed in a
* few weeks, and only about one-sixth
of the total work of tabulation re
mains to be accomplished.
The total disbursements for the cen
eus thus far have been $3,860,008'
and Congress will be asked to ap
propriate $540,000 additional, in'
eluding $330,000 for the payment o1
the volunteer force that has been
carrying on the clerical work since
the exhaustion of the appropriation
made at the last session.
Secretary Kirkwood, in transmit
ting this report for the consideration
of the President and,Congress, pay8
a high tribute to Superintendent
Walker, and says it can be safely as
eerted that the ninth census is distin
guished from any that had preceded
it by better and far more reliable
work, comprehending departments of j
public and private industry never be
fore included in the census. The re
vised and corrected enumeration ol
the figures show that the total popu
lation of the United StateB is 50,155,"
783. The increase since 1870 ap
pears to be about 30 per cent.

but isn't the statement sound ?
The Report of Department of Ag.

area of South Carolina at 944,050.
and for 1879 at 744, OOO. These
statements bear the unmistakable ear

corn area given for South Carolina by
the eanie authority for 187S was
1,320,000, and for 1879 only 1,293,

Under the head of "Religion of the

on horseback from Lancaster to Char,

to eee her son. On her return, when
about 50 miles from Charleston, ?-he
was taken with fever arid ilied. Af
ter the sad event young Andrew lived
with the family of Maj. Robert Craw
ford, whose wife was Jackson 3 aunt
Major Crawford was his guardian..
Jackson's mother was Miss White.
The Crawfords, Jacksons, Whites and
Duulaps all came from the north o*
Ireland, and settled io what was then
and is now known as the Waxhaw
Settlement, in Lancaster County, S.
C. They were all inveterate Whigs
during the Revolution. Alter the
war young Jackson began to learn
the taddlery trade under his uncle
Moses White, the brother ?f hi8
mother. He had not been long at it
when he suddenly "dashed aside bis

for a higher destiny. He then went
to Salisbury, N. C., to reside with a

He studied law with Mr. Crawford,
and afterward moved to Tennessee
It has been said that Jackson was
born in North Carolina, only a shot t

which the New Brigand; manufactur
ers were yesterday received. The
guests? within our gates were rn every
respect- representative New England
spinners; men of practical experience
and liberal views, whose "impressions
of the- South, received from the Cot
ton Exposition at Atlanta, have been
confirmed and' enhanced by inspec
tion of Augusta's factories and Au
gusta's facilities. They have trav
eled over our superb water way; wit
nessed a . massive new mill in the
course of construction, and at the
dam and bulk-head of the locks have
been convinced of the enterpiising
outlay which we made to secure euch
advantages. Mr. Edward Atkinson
much to the regret.of all, could not
he with us, bat his' contemporaries
from New England have visited us,
and have marveled at our works, and
glowingly predicted the future which
such manufacturing must bring. Our
gnc-ats have been impressed mest fa
vorably with the beauty of the town
and the high social qualities- of its
residents. The gcod opiuion of such
men is worth much to us, and it is a
matter of great satisfaction lp knoiv
that this opportunity^ of capturing
and entertaining distinguished visi
tors to the Expedition has been so
auspiciously improved. Mayor Mayt
who has been so indefatigable in hi3
elibrts, and the Committees of Gout
eil and.of the citizens are to be pub
.licly .thanked for their public spirit

Th? New Iiivebt.oB f f Brick Burning.
Since our mna of November 2d?
in which attention wai calif*] to the
"Asbury ProcertW? Uurnii-g Bricks,',
a kiln of 500,000 ? bricks, has been
OjV^?jt?d at ihe yur is ot Messrs. BOD
durant, J-.-p!n;g &0o.- Notwithbtand*
lng this was Omi ki.'n, burned un
der the disadvantage oi'^a want . ^
HC-qiuintHnc'e:iwitb -the. character of
the clay, by a burner from another
State, who thas- could., not possibly.
make a thorough and proper applies?
tion of the heat; yet: the kiln was
burned of a uniform hardness and
color, and with much less than ten
per cent: of salmon' -bricks. Souse
idea of the importance of this ne
?process of burning bricks may be
formed from this fact, although it is
yet jn its very infan?y, iiiien itirpro
per application and management ii
not -half understood, aud1 when ex
perience and nee alone can develop
.this knowledge. "Still it shows the
enormous saving, over all old meth
ods, of '-one-third the quantity of
wood formerly required, as well 89
one-tnird of - the time and labor mr
der old processes, td say nothing of
the superior quality of the bricks.
Although based upon scientific^
principles, its simplicity is such that
the commonest laborer, who bas been
employed around kilns under-the old
met hods, may operate ft with mor*
certainly, ao.d^aucoess, .asto good and
well barned bricks, even in his firs^
attempt, ..than under the old method,
with all Hie past experience. Th?
economy of its use, even at first
sight, is indisputable to . those who
are acquainted with brick burning,
without, the practical illustration of
it-such as a kiln already burned.
Kiln clamps cr ca/ing? used in th?
old Btyle oi burning can be remod
elled for the application of this new
improvement for as trifling a sum ea
$10; thus entailing scarcely any coBt
on those' desiring to avail themselves
cf this great invention. It may be
safely asserted that under this sys,
