Now is the Time to Sabscribe.
Having enlarged the Herald to double its for
ner size, without any increase in price of sub
scripti--n, no better time can present itself for
subscribing to the same. .It is npw fully as large,
if not larger, than any weely paper in this State,
and as cheap as the cheapest. The larger the
*ubscription list, the better the paper; therefore.
if the District and country surrounding w.ant a
good, cheap paper it is in their,power to make it
so, by subscribing at once.

executien our promise, in nurturing and coating
it up tzito mature growth, through vexations, tri-*
bilations 2nd griefs; and with satisfaction that
the patronage extended warrant4 the enlar,-e
ment. It was our intention to have made the
first doe.ble'IFsue with 'a peat and appropriute
heading, beAides some cther little improrements
but a disappointment in getting the material is
our excuse. In the meantime, and for all other
time, that the Herald is in its present ln,' the
aim shall be to make it in every way worthy and
acceptable to its wine-spread readers, and who,
having been with it in its incipient4 and tender
age, v e trust will continuea. cheerful support in
its maturer nd -iper years. And to our patrovs
we tender many acknowledgements for their
liberal support and confidenve in the times past.
In the future, trustincrto their forbearance and
kindness, we promise to do all in our power to

- The Fature of the Emneipato. Negro. -
Tiie flood tide of' emigration which constantly
rolls frony Europecto America, says the Lo'is
rile Courier will press te negro before it as it
did the Indian. The surplus population of Nor
the%u towns also will pour into the Sou'th. - The
poor will come in search of labor, those of small
capital iwill come to better their condition and
the capitalist will come to intvest. ~ In a few years
outi' population will be trebled and -white labor
will abound.
' The.negroes will move southward, tmtil writh.
in'thirty years the. twill be as scarce here as
they arc in the Northern States now. -Atnd why ?
Because the -outhern people wilt be tinkind and
prejudiced again,st them!? No. But because noiv
tbat they are free, we shall become as careless
about~ them as th'e Nort hrnen arejatnd when we
find it to our interest to empluy -wites to per
form the mextdal service .they have been perform
ing, with arge'ye to self-interest, we shhll not be
slow to do it. If pressed back, it will not'be the
Southern, but the Nouthern people and Emrope
that will do it.' Thtey will leave- because .the au.
perior-and more energetic whites will take .their;
places ; and as they ownt no pai-t of. the soil as
soon as they' cannotind employmnent, they wi.l
begin-to disatppear'. The netgrd'prospered phty.
sically and increased in number is a slave; but
with this tide of white emnigratiot. pressing for-f
ward as the reenlt of-his being freed, we do not
),elieve he can now. -.
*Already we hear.that. the intelligence offiees
*ill be abl -to furnish white servnints for fim-;
lUsesh o wish thenm, in North Carolina, arid od
doubt by the first of.January newtit will be~as
easy to get any kind of white "i'elp" thattmay be
desired, in that St:tt', as in Balitinore or New
York. And wheni this becomes to be. the case,
and the people who have to hire,'finel that Que
Irish or German woman ca. do the lahor of two.
negro wonten, like th, people of the North they
will give the preference. If the negro i*driven
out, as we believe he will be uh,iu,ately, it will
not be on-adeo;ent of persecution by.the former c'
owiers, but by .the flood' of'emigration which
bad passed slavery before it, before the war be-I
gan, from Maschusetts to Maryland.
If' the negro w ould remain t ere'.s 'n inferior,
not deniand too much..and- performifor re.ason t
able comp nsatien the labour the country must c
ave, he might stay this Vo'umte of imumigrationr
to some exine.at-: but if he listens .to the lew fat
