The summer meeting of the State Agricultural and Mechanical Society and State Grange took place in Ma rion last week. The discussion of the labor question was the main point of interest, and Senator M. C. Butler, who was present, said that this' was the great question for the farmer. "We should not mince matters in this discussion. The labor of this country is becoming more unsettled every year. There has been no time since 1865 when the labor has been more unreliable than now. It is ad mitted by the colored men. even that those born since freedom are becom ing more and more worthless. We must get a supply for this deficiency. We could safely spaie two hundred thous and of the negro laborers. Let them go into Kansas.and elsewhere if they wish. We could follow the example of Mr. Crayton and get Germana. There is too much cheap labor. Some have been driven by necessity to pro cure machinery and use it them selves. They have not ten mouths now to feed where they should have had one. Experience is good for us all. Go upon the farms and give them personal supervision. Land in New Jersey which was worth $1 per acre is now worth $100 per sere. He waa sorry to believe that the laborers we have are not making progress in this country. The white race caunot afford to be handicapped by such a drag upon them, and must use all labor saving machines and get rid of an army of drones. There is no ques tion of so much consequence to the progress of the State. There should be no question between capital and labor. No question is so grave as thal of maintaining the efficiency of our labor. There is no more beneficent purpose for the use of brain than the tilling of the soil. Senator Butler said furthermore, I wish to elicit discussion. I have done all in my power to show that I had reluctantly come to the conclusion that negro labor is not reliable or progressive. Has it advanced, as it should have done ? The Lien law was passed to meet the exigencies of the occasion. No people got so much benefit from this law as the colored people. We have kept them going at our own expense. Can we afford to continue this ruinous system ? Will they never be able to stand alone ? ?They are as bad off to day as when they started in 1865. It is not a question of sentiment, but one of interest, which concerns us and our children. It is not a question of how many bales of cotton this or that man can make, but there is no parallel in history where a people bas stood by an inferior race as we of the South have done. But we must do simple justice tp ourselves, and must strive every year more and more to make ourselves independent of them. There is no man but will admit that such labor in becoming more and more in efficient. How are we to meet this question ? To my mind we must do aa some of our friends have said, that is, put a homogeneous race in their p^CeaT^Strtrhalf of'the cotton of the ' South has been made by white labor. What becomes of these people when we take the protecting intelligence of the white man away from them ? They rettograde to a condition that no one could have dreamed of. Let that labor take charge of this country and you have a howling wilderness in the place of plenty. The colored man has not made the progress which your speakers have noticed so forcibly here to-day. I do not decry negro labor, but I want to see this country inde pendent of it. We cannot rely upon them alone. The great progress in this country is due to the white la borer and not to the negro. One who has labored in the cause of education of the negro said " that he could go to a certain point but all beyond that made him topheavy, and that he has not made one step forward morally." I have been forced to admit, against . my will, to say that the time bas come for us to look for some way out of this difficulty. We have progressed in spite of fate. If they want to go to Indiana let them go. You will never have any material increase in your white population until you get a material diminution of the colored man. When you put the foreigner into competition with the negro he does not stay, he goes, and so would you. He has no people to associate with. I think twenty years is experi ment enough. We cannot afford to carry this incubus on our shoulders. They must keep up with the course of progress or must be left behind. Selling Liquor to a Man of Known Intemperate Habits. M On Thursday morning the City Council heard an appeal from the Mayor's Court in which a barkeeper .in town had been found guilty and fined for furniehing intoxicating liq nor to a man of known intemperate habits. The council sustained the findings below, and the defendant gaye notice of appeal to the Circuit Court.-Anderson Journal. We are delighted by the action of the Mayor of Anderson, and sincere ly hope that it will be imitated by many other Mayors. The saloon keep er who deliberately sells liquor to a drunkard, a drunken man .or a boy, violates the laws, and the rules of morality and humanity, and ought to be prosecuted and severely put ished whenever the proof can be obtained. We do not believe the State has any right to say whether a citizen shall or shall not drink whiskey, but she has a right and is bound to protect thoee of her citizens who from infirmity, previous indulgence or youth are in? capable of taking care ot themselves. If our friends of the temperance so cieties would abandon the prohibition issue for a time and devote their ef forts to^stimulating the prosecution of such cases as that in Anderson, they would do a vast amount of im mediate, practical good.-Greenville Daily News. Damned Scoundrels! WASHINGTON, July 25.-Col. Jack Brown, of Georgia, is one of the most ? prominent of the Southern Republi- ] cans in this city. Yesterday he had j occasion, in looking after the interest of a client, to call upon the Postmas ter General.

HENDERSONVILLE, N. C., Joly 26. DEAR ADVERTISER: We left home Thursday morning, one week ago, for the mountains of Western North Car olina. Boarded the traiu at Trenton, and had a fine opportunity to see the crops along the Ridge. They were good, bat beginning to need rain sad ly. At Columbia we exchanged cars for Hendersonville, N. C , there be ing in waiting a special car destined for the mountains. Had a delightful ride from Columbia to Alston, al thongh nothing especially interesting outside. Dined on board the train at 2 o'clock. After dinner we began to take the census of the passengers on board. Jost back of os sat two bright girls going to Glonn Springs to spend the summer-f.he Misses Mitchell, from near Batesburg. They will cer tainly make thg boys either joyful or sad, if they remain there long, so winsome are their laces. No sooner had we gotten through playing the "agreeable" here; before we were accosted by Hon. William Munro of Union, S. C , and after that we began to swim in the sea of poli tics until he left us at Union, his town. What we said and intend to do we cannot tell you now. For the encouragement of our farm ers,^ let me say just here, that the crops through Union and Spaitanburg Counties, and through this whole up country, are poorer than we have ever seen anywhere, and poorer, they say, than they have been in twenty-five years. The dry weather is the cause. At Spartanburg, (our old home, we mightsay, for four years of our "teens" were spent here) we find a bustling, stirring little city, full of people, busi ness and pleasure. After exchang ing trains and shaking hands with casual acquaintances, the "all aboard" word is given, and off to the moun tains we go ! And in the train there is scarcely standing room-laughing women, talking men and crying ba bies, accompanying the monotonous rattle of the train. As usual here comes the inevitable drummer for the hotels-with flaming cards and per suasive eloquence. And, in this con nection, we must pay our especial re spects to one who calls himself Jarbo, alias Jumbo. We do this in order that others seeing our examples may profit by them. We have just got rid of these nuisances, and we can now begin to view the prospect over. The train moves carefully along around the huge abysmal gorges, at the rugged base of mountain on moun tain, like a grand panorama, unfold ing in its sweep beauties wild as when they first fell from the hand of God. We know nobody nor anything un til we get to Tryon, a station on the Spartanburg and Asheville Railroad, where, much to our gratification and surprise, we uaw one lady on a mule bowing to us several times, who is very familiar in all her beauty and vivacity to the people, of our town, once Mrs. Georgia H., now Mrs. Wright, of Columbia. They say the Tryon Hotel is a good one, and we are sure the scenery is fine. Up we go, until we get to the real climb of the railroad, the grade in the road where, with heavy trains, they have to uncouple and take up one box car at a time, or use two "engines to get us over the mountains. To look at it, it seems nearly as steep as the bill in front of Dr. Jennings'. At Salu da, another station, among the spec tators we see Gov. Bonham and lit tle Frank, which makes ijdptl like we were nearer home thaf?We were. Arrived at Hendersonville at 8 o'clock, and find comfortable quar ters at the Fletcher House, on Main 6treet. The table is the beet in the town-supplied as it is from the line farm of the proprietor, who lives ten miles from here on the road to Ashe ville. Really the air U fine. Sleep ing nedor blankets in July is a fact. Flies and musquitoes are at a dis count, and it is glorious to know yon have got them where you can rule them. No sweltering in the sum mer's heat, no punting and blowing and pulling off coats, and donning of linen dusters, to keep life in you up here! The water is splendid. Rested from the heat and fatigue of travel, we drive out in the after noon of Friday to see the residences of the Charlestoniaus around Fiat Rock-a little town about four miles from here. We passed, cn route, the mountain residences of Barker, Tien holm, and others, and we dismounted at the gate leading into the residence of the Rev. Mr. Drayton, sn Episco pal divine. The grounds, hot houses, plants, and rare trees in here, and the terraced lawns, remind ns of a veritable Scotch Residence. From this poir t you can 6ee the Memmin ger residence on a high hill, fronting a sloping lawn covered with grass and browsing cows-encircled partially by a pond-now undergoing repairs by and under the immediate super vision of the Hon. C. G. Memminger himself. In the distance, command ing a grand view, is "the Coxe House," here known-built as it is said by one Joe Coxe, a rich fellow, who made certain promises to a young lady of this place, but which were broken up by bia enraged mother. The hand some residence is now owned by So licitor Jervey of the Charleston bar. On our return therefrom we passed by the Henry Middleton house-who had to leave it in all its grandeur and beauty, because he killed a ruffian, who attempted to rob him of some of his earthly treasure. Back again to the hotel, prepared for supper. Al rest again. .'n the morning of Saturday, while sitting in the veranda, we SJC the sweet, smiling face of a lady well known to our society-Mrs. Beall, of Augusta-coming to see us. At home again, as she is so peculiarly charm ing everywhere. On Sunday we drive to the Tower - four miles over and on top of the mountains-to see, as the notices stuck around here say-the Kingdom of this world. This is a thing gotten up by a Northern man-to swindle the foolish traveler ! This is a pleasant little town, and a good plaje for over-worked men ana invalid women, who need qui etude and rest. We are just now getting the keys to the secrets of the mountains, and when we get back from Caesar's Head, Buck Forest and Brevard, we will give yon nome of the fat things of the mountains, inas much as you have taBted the " lean" in this letter.

OFFICE OF THE AUGUSTA AND SUM- ] MERYILLE KAILROAD COMPANY, I AUGUSTA, GA., June 25, 1883 J Editors Chronicle: In the Chronicle and Constitution' alis/ of Sunday, the 24th , is a com munication signed " M," and dated, " Edgefield C. H., S. C, June 20th, 1883," which contains a clause com posed of charges which are so utterly the reverse of fact, and so grossly un just to the Augusta and Summerville Railroad Company, (" the city street car line"), that, of course, I ask space to deny a"iH disprove tho assertion made. It is stated that the farmers of Edgefield say "that the Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta Railroad add five cents on each hundred pounds to their freight rates to Augusta because the road is-required to pay that much for the privilege cf crossiug the City Street Car Line." Now the written contract between the Augusta and Summerville Rail road Company (the " City Street Car Line") and the Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta Railroad Company, un der which all business between these' two companies has, tor many years in the past, been conducted, and which is binding upon both companies lor many years to come, after defining the term "Local Freight of which the point of orgiual shipment or of ultimate destination ia the City of Augusta," sets forth " that the Char lotte, Columbia and Augusta Railroad Company shall be required to pay to the Augusta and Sumraervilie Rail road Company (the 'City Street Oar Line') nocharges whatsoever on Local Freight." This local freight is exactly the branch of business embraced in the assertion of" M." Any one id capa ble o? understanding that, by these terms, the Augusta ano! Summerville Railroad Company is, by written con tract, prohibited from making any charge whatsoever against the Char lotte, Columbia and Augusta Railroad Company, upon any pioduce or mer chandise brought to the Augusta market, or upon that which is shipped from the Augu-ta market over the Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta Railroad. The same exemption from charge by the Augusta and Summer ville Railroad Company is enjoyed by all the other railroads entering the city of Augusta in addition, I assert the act, that the Augusta and Sum .mervillt Railroad Company has never, from the first day of its existence, made any charge on freight which even approximated to the rate of five cents per one hundred pounds. The rates of this company do not reach one-third ofthat amount; and these cannot, under any circumstances, be imposed upon freight brought in for sale in Augusta, nor upon freight sold in Augusta and shipped by railroad out of the city. On that kind of freight, the Augusta and Summerville Railroad Company does not charge as much RS one cent fora thousand tons. It charges nothing whatever, and in addition, permits the entirely free and unlimited uee of its track for that purpose. In proof of my ?issertion, I append the last report of the Char lotte, Columbia and Augusta Railroad of dues to the Augusta and Summer ville Railroad Company. All others contain only the same items.
