"More labor, ,noro help," is the
cry we hear from all quarters. Otr
p)Lanteis in want of hands to go o
successfully with the year's oroppi g
bit waiting don't supply the do oien
oy. Freedmen in this section of
country are searce as laborers, prefer.
riug to work their own patches ,of
land, either bought or leased. 16 is
next to impossible to recruit the ]a
hiring forco iu New Orleans, or if a
few are engaged to come out to the
country, they demand higer wages
and an advance, and even thon, nine
times out of ten they prove worthless
and are sent off, or run away of their
own ac'!ord. As high as $1.50 a day
is paid by some pianteis, and .not
onough can be hud at that price.
What phters can expect to make at
soch pric.s for labor is beyond our
knowledge. Certain it is sugar,
remunerative as its production
is, cannot afford to pay such wages
and run tbo chances of cropping.

Can they stand any further expendi
ture than that already voted for this
purposo ? Indeed, we are disposed to
commend very heartily the fact that
the Logislaturo appropriated but
$50,000 beyond tile poll-tax for free
school purposes this year. Its appro
priat ion of thirty thousand dollars as

if the Guardian would make its at
tack there, we would gravely consider
its suggestions. But we regret to see
the attack made on the sincerity of
tile Intention and the honesty of the
motive. If there is anything that you
can arouse vindictive fanaticism upon,,
it is this 5same education question..

In the middle of the night she arnso

the conflicts of the past were either '
decided long ago, or else they have i

A wholly different series of issues '
have rome upon the country, and,
recognizing certain exigenoies of the
present, it is the mission of the Demo- I
oratio party to address itself to them. c
Hut for this it could not combine, as 8
it does, many of the best materials
of all parties. But for this it could
not represent, as It seeks to do, the
conservatism - of the whole oauntry,
which is simply a consolidation of all
peaceful elements against the warlike f
spirit of a still . progressing, revolu- V

A MASTODON's JAw.-Professor
Shepard has in his possession at the
laboratory of the Medical College, the
lower jaw of a young male mastodon.
It is about two feet long. From tihe
fact that the teeth are not worn at all,
as would be the case with an older o
animal, it is judged that the former 2
possessor of this jaw was young and a
male. It had two tusks in the lower
jaw, about a foot long. This .jaw,
was dug up.A- Phosphatoville, near
the Efght-tiile Pimp, on the North. 1
eastera Railroad. Other portions of ,
the body, such as the ankle bones, ver.
tebrm, &o., have been found, but
unlike this jaw, were so decayed as
to Ecqrcely bear handling. The
cranium has not beep found. The I
herbiferous beast which chewed with
this jaw, although young, must have
been between eleven and twelve feet
high, and about eightoen feet long. e
