A Mississippi Narrative.
A young man, whose name we with
-- hold, who left Newberry some time
3. since, (it were better perhaps he had
- never left), and who was a good Sun
day scho >l scholar, up to the time of
r hi; leaving, writes from Mississippi to
o Mr. Ca. r Vance that he killed a bear
ii- E elimbing a cora stalk, and that he also
es found a litter of pigs inside of a corn
=r- shuck. He says that corn grows pro
digously "over the,-e." We fear that

This caravansary is noted for its table

25 forts afforded in its sleeping arrange

d. experience qualify them for the posi
:r- tion of hosts. One of the proofs of its
ir excellence is the number of drummers
who quarter there, and who are loth

Laborers' Contracts
r It is important that all farmers
.shoult- know the folowing law: All
r- cor)t racts made between 'owners of
land or their agents and laborers shall
be witnessed by one or more disinter
ested persons, and, at the request of
b either party, be duly execnted before
aa Tr'.al Justice, whose duty it shall be
to read and explain the same to the
Sparties. Such contracts shall clearly
set forth the conditions upon which the
laborer or laborers engaged to work,
Semibraciing the lengtli of time, the
Samount of money to be paid, and
when; if it be on: shares of crops, what
porion of the crop) or crops. The law
provi les that either party violating
such contract may be punished by
0 fine or imp)risonment.
e Whaile these contracts are not requir
- ed to be in writing, they ought always
a to be witnessed.

Sinking Fund Commir.sion.
As we have b:-en asked what are the
duties of th:! S:-,king Fund Commis
sion, about which much has been.
said lately. we give the following state
muent of the law on the subject :
The S-ertiary of State shall take
charge of all prope y of the State, the
care of which is no' otherwise provid
ed for by law ; and hold it subject to
the directions and instructions of the
Commissioners of the Sinking Fund.
And a1l vacant lands purchased by
the late Land Commissioners of the
State, shall be subject to the directions
and instructions of the Commissioners I
of Sinking Fund.
For the purpose of paying the pres-,
eut indebtedness of the State, and the
interest thereon, and such further in
debtedness as may hereafter be con
tracted by the State, the Governor,
Comptroller General, and the Attor
ney General, the Chairman of the Fi
nance Committee of the Senate. and
Chairman of the Committee of Ways
and Means of the House ofRepresen
tatives are constituted Commissioners
to be known as "The Commissioners
of the Sinking Fund," to receive and
manage the incomes and revenues set
apart and applied to the Sinking
Fund of the State.
It is the duty of the Commissioners
of the Sinking Fund to sell and con
vey for the State, all such real and
personal property, assets and effects
belonging to the State, as is not in ac
tual public use, the sales to be made
from time to time, in such manner
and upon such terms as they may
deem most advantageous to the State.
The proceeds of such sales shall be set.
aside, and awarded to the Sinking
Fund of the State.
The Commissioners are required to
report, annually, to the General As

and all sales and other transactions
counected therewith. All the reve

cupied thiegreater p)art of Wednesday,
and all day Thursday. The plaintifr
was replresented by M. A. Carli-le,
Esq., and the defendant, by Messza.1
Saber and Caldwell, and John C.
IIaskell, Esq., the Attorney for the
road. The argument occupied. half a
day, and the jury retired late Thurs
day evening. After remai.*ing out
several hours. they found for'the plaiin
tifr, a verdiet for about one half of the
value of the cotton destroyed. We learn
that they decided that the railroad
compJany was "half liable" and the
warehau)tse-man "half liable," anid
accordingly divided the value of the
cotton by two.

this case, feeling as he said, that the

Somethng Smaller than Wefore.
The second citizeas' meeting for the
purpose of talking about a 1ire depart
ment was held in the Opera House,
Monday night. The few whites who
were prese nt were reinforced by the
members of the Hook and Ladder
Company , who were out in a body,
prepared to receive the sm all lumps of
"taffy" that were flung to them by
diseerning speakers.
The Mayor being absent, Gen. W.
H. Hunt was called to the chair. The
minutes of the last meeting were then
approved, and the report of the Com
mittee which was appointed to ascer
tain the probable cost of a fire depart
ment, and to raise as large an amount as
possible by voluntary snbscription,
was read by Mr. M. Foot, chairman.
The report, after being amended in
several particulars, reads as follows:
The Committee, after mature delil
eration and inquiry, find that th.
amount necessary to pay for the nee
es ary supply of water-works and ap
paratus for the extinguishing of fires,
cannot be raised by voluntary subscrip
tion. and the only means is by direct
taxation upon the property of the
town. That, until the necessary funds
can be raised, we would suggest that
the Truck now owned by the town, and
in the hands of a regularly organized
Fire Company composed of colored
citizens who have at the late fires
rendered valuable assistance and
showg that by proper drilling and
with proper tools they can be made an
efficient fire company, your committee
would respectfully recommend :
1st. That a proper person be fur
nished this company for drilling and
directing them at fires.
2d. That the Truck, Ladders, Bab
%ocks, Buckets. Hooks, Axes and all
things belonging to truck, be placed
in complete tepair and an extra num
ber of buckets be placed in the truck
3d. That the Town Council direct
their clerk, or appoint a committee to
eommunicate with proper persons to
iscertain the co-4 of the building of
sisterns, laying pipes, and the cost of
t movable or stationary engine, or
inything that is necessary to the estab
lishment of an efficient fire company.
4th. That as soon as the probable
,ost of a fire department is ascertain
d and published, the huestion of ap
,lying to the Legislature for leave to
levy a special tax for said fire depart
nent bb submitted to the taxpayers of
he town for their vote thereon.
M. FOOT, Chairman.
The report was considered by see
ions and was adopted. The meeting
,ot cold, and nervous, and impatient
Lnd adjourned almost without a mo
ion. It is supposed that the Council
vill be ready to submit the matter to
he people at the election of a new
ouncil on the 12th of April.
Nobody was surprised that the vol
intary subscription movement failed;
tnd it is now believe'i that the :ire de

which widl be realiz.d in full measu:e.
The clear and able leader "fhoughts for
the Month" by Dr. Jones, is worthy to be
regarded by the farmers of the South as a
sure ru:e of success. lite "Inquiry Depart

annoyance of profitless litigation through

a series of articles from Mr. David Dickson,
who, many years ago, proved himself the
most successful agricultur.st of the South,
und gave the readers of The Cultivator the
benetis of his system and methods. The
benefit derived from his writings then was
ioc ,lctaiable. His admirable letters will be
revised, rewt itten, and will embrace his pre

The series will ~run through twelve num

every detail of information which underlIes
the successful culture of ti:e soil. All who
know the t-eputation of Mr. Dickson will ap
