THE OLD MAN'S DREAM.
0 for one hour of youthful joy,
(Sire back my twentieth spring,
I'll rather laugh a bright-haired boy
Than reign a gray-beard king!
Off with the wrinkled spoils of age !
Away with learning's crown!
Tear out life's wisdom-written page.
And dash its trophies down!
One moment let my life-blood stream
From boyhood's fount of flame!
(live me one giddy, reeling dream
Of life all love and fame!
?My listening angel heard the prayer,
Aud calmly smiling, said,
" If I hut touch thy silvered hair,
Thy hasty wish hath sped.
" But is there nothing in thy track
To bid thee fondly stay,
While the swift seasons hurry back
To find the wisbed-t'or day?"
?Ah, truest soul of womankind!
Without thee, what were life?
One bliss I canuot leave behind :
I'll take?my?precious wife!
?The angel took a sapphire pen,
And wrote in rainbow dew,
"The man would be a boy again,
And be a husband,too!"
"And is there nothing yet unsaid,
Refore the change appears ?
Remember, all their gifts have fled
With these dissolving years?"
Why, yes: for memory would recall
My fond parental joys ;
I could not bear to leave tlu-m all:
I'll take?my?girl?and?boys!
The smiling angel dropped his pen?
"Why this will never do ;
The man would be a boy again,
And be a father too!"
And so I laughed?my laughter woke
The household with its noise?
And wrote my dream when morning broke,
To please the gray-haired boys.
? Amusing Heading.
THE DUTCH WIDOWER.
1 Mine frow vos uo better as she ort to be
till shust before she diet; then she was so
good as before,' remarked Mr. Vanderhoard
to his neighbor.
'Your wife was an amiable woman, and
you do great injustice to her memory,' said
Mr. Pluggins.
1 Tel, vat you know so much about mine
frow ?'
<1 was not intimately acquainted with her,
but I am sure that all her acquaintances loved
her.'
1 Tot right had they to love her? May
be?'
t 1 May be what!'
1 May be you love mine frow, too ?'
' Why do you speak so strangely!'
1 Vy, von day a pig man shust like you
f oame into our house, and kissed mine frow
right before her face.'
' Were you present at the time !'
1 To pe sure I vos.'
? Well, what did you do ?'
' I kicked him right pehind his pack.'
? Did he resent it ?'
< Yaw ; he broke me and te looking-glass,
and all the rest of the crockery in te house,
'cept tlie fedder ped, into smash !'
' What did you do theu ?'
'Then I cried murter ! murter! raurter !
and I called for the shudge, and the shury,
and to the police office and constoble to couie ;
and he rund avay !'
' Po you intend to charge me with taking
such unwarrantable liberties with the companion
of your bosotn ?'
' Me no scharge nothing for it now, pccaus
she pe tead and perried.'
?I will not allow you to make such insinuations.
You are an old tyrant, and everybody
said you was glad your wife died.'
' Every body pe one taiu liar.'
'I saw no symptoms of sorrow.'
' Me felt more worsht tau if my best cow
had tied.
' Your cow ! What a comparison !'
< She vos a great loss?for she was pig as J
dat (spreading cut his arm,) and she weighed
more tan two hundred pounds.'
' Look out, old man, or you will see trouble?I
doubt if your wife was ever kissed by !
any man after her marriage. At all events,
you must apologise for what you have said i
of me.'
' Vot ispologizc?'
'You must beg my pardon, and say you'
are sorry; if you do not, 1 will enter a complaint
against you, and have you arrested.'
' I pe sorry, ten.'
'Sorry for what ?'
'Sorry you kissed mine frow.'
'You incorrigible idiot! That is not what
you must say) for 1 never did such a thing
in my life.'
'Must I say I pe sorry that you never do
such a ting ?'
'No?you must take back what you have
said.'
While the-Dutchman was in this dilemma,
his friend Hans Hamburger came along, and
finally succeeded in reconciling the parties,
when the trio adjourned to a neighboring
coffee-house.
" STOP THE PAPER."
"Thus far," said Canute, the presumptuous
King of England, to the rolling waves
of the sea, while perched upon a chair,
"shalt thou go, and no farther;" but the
rising tide swept majestically along, under
the monarch's feet, dashed its salty spray in- j
to his face, and he beat a retreat, convinced ;
that his sway was not acknowledged. "Stop |
the paper," wrote a highly indignant and J
presumptuous sovereign to us the other day, |
because the mail-tide placed in his hands "a J
yellow envelope," with a two dollar dun !
for a years' subscription. Thanks to the j
yr>'(it majority of our subscribers who belong
to the cash tribe, the Sun?the paper? j
will not stop in its course, but will continue j
to rise and rise, until it shall rise so high j
that it will dazzle with Its brilliancy this j
indignant sovereign, and convince him that
his commaud is not acknowledged.
0, the conceit, the folly of some, "possessed
of a little brief authority, most ignorant
of what they are most assured who think,
because they may own a short tailed horse
and a pointer dog, aud can say unto him,
"Down, Eido!" and he "downeth," that
they can likewise say unto a paper, called
the "Sun," "Stop !" and it "stoppeth."?
No such thing. It is an error?an egregious
error?as great an one as the presumptuous
Canute committed.
There is no such man as Joshua now.?
He liveth not." It would not do for such
men to live and move in this day and time,
for if they did, "Strange eruptions would
shake the old beldame earth, topple down
steeples and moss grown towers, darken the
; sun and stop the glorious beams of light."?
| "Stop the paper!" No, we'll stop your,
I paper, but not ours. Think you that we
1 would "stop our paper"?the Sun?with- j
draw the beams, which have lor so long a '
! time eulivencd and animated the drooping j
' spirits of age, delighted the young, excited I
a genial glow of humor, been a welcome j
visitor at many a hearth side, because you, |
who was born with red hair on your teeth, j
should articulate by way of a big white en- j
I velope, with a three cent stamp on it, "Stop j
the paper." Sooner would we think of j
thrusting our hands deep down, far into the ;
recesses of our breeches pockets, pulling up
from thence a <Vnnc, and contributing it lor
the purpose of heaping up more mud at

kansas, says a correspondent of a New York
I paper, I arrived at the ferry on Cache river.
I A little log house grocery stood on the near !
! bank, about fifteen steps from where the flat j
; lay, tied to a snag in the edge of the water. |
Several bear skins, deer skins, and coon skins, |
were nailed up to dry against the walls of
the grocery, but the door was closed, and
110 bar-keeper, ferryman, or other persons
! was in sight. I halloed at the top of my
j voice some half a dozen times; but no one
answered. Seeing a advertisuient on the door,
| I read as follows:?
< Noatis:?Kfennybody eums heararter

j giune a Fishin no credit a when ime awa

that cant rede will hev too go to the house
arter Betsy taint but half a mile thar.'
In obedience to the ' Noatis,' I took the
blowing horn' which stuck in a crack of the i
j wall close by the door, and gave it a ' toot'
| or two, which reverberated far around thro'
i the cauc and swamp, and in a few moments
! was answerd by a voice scarcely less loud and
I rcverberatiug than that of the horn?it seemj
ed to be about half a mile up the river : in
about fifteen minutes a stalwart female made
her appearance and asked if I wanted < licker.
' $o, madam, want to o*oss the river, if
you please.
'Don't ye want some licker fust?'
' No, madam?don't drink?never touch
liquor.'
i ' Never tetch licker! Why then ye must
I be a preacher, an't you?'
'No madam, I'm only a Son of Temperi
ance; I wish to get across the river, if you [
I please: do, you row the boat ?'
' Oh, yes ! I can take ye over in less than 1
! no time. Fetch up yer hoss !
i I obeyed, asking, as I led the horse into
I boat, 'i'ld your nusDana write tnat aaver- |
j tisement on the door there ?'
! (2s"o, sir-rce! Schoolmaster Jones writ that,
i John haiu't got no larnin!'
I And the good woman rowed the boat safely
accross the ugly stream, and handing her
the ferrage fee, I bade her good morning, be|
lieving then, as I still do, that she was one
| of the happiest women, and best wives, I ev|
or saw?perfectly contented with her lot,
; because she knew no better.
A Schoolmaster Run 3Iad.?A Sindi'lar
Affair.?A mysterious individual
I in Buffaloe, supposed to be a discharged
i schoolmaster, run mad, has been kidnapping
young school-boys in the streets, taking them
into a garret or basement, and asking them ;
to recite portions of the multiplication table.
If they failed he would take off their pants
aud lather them with a leather strap, which
he carries for that purpose, beating them
most brutally. The little fellows get so
scared they fail to identify him, aud the police
can't catch him. The last Buffalo Republic
says :
This individual, who is around the streets
teaching the multiplication table to the little
boys (who have no fathers) with a strap, is
still prosecuting his busiuess zealously.?
Several complaints have been made against
him at the police office, but as yet he has
not been arrested. His last feat was getting
a little boy into a basement, and asking him
how much nine times nine was. The boy,
boing a smart little fellow, immediately gave
the correct answer. The algrebraical professor
leoked rather surprised at this, but pur- i
sued his design by suddenlyasking him how |
much nine times ninety-nine made ? This j
puzzled the little fellow, who had not gone j
beyond twelve times twelve in the multiplication
table, and the professor, noticing his
hesitation, immediately took off the boy's
trowsers and gave him a merciless beating.
He then gave the boy a penney, and told
him to be sure and know all about the figures j
next time he came.
A Rival in Business.?Rev. John I
Johnson, ofNewburg, was walking out back |
of his house, where a new street was open- i
ing, when he saw an Irishman hard at work I
with a crowbar, striving to dislodge a huge i
stone from the ground, where it was held
fast by the roots of a tree. His patience was
fairly exhausted by the vain struggles he
made, and at last he exclaimed :
"The divil take it!"
The old pastor approached him, aud quietly
remarked that he ought not to make \
such free use of the name of the Evil One, j
and certainly not wish to throw such a big i
stoue at him as that. The Irishman was
quiet a minute, and striking the crowbar into
the ground, aud leaning leisurely on it,
he turned up his face at once to the Doctor,
and the sunlight, while over it roguishly
played those indescribable forerunners of!
genuine Irish wit, he replied :
"Och, theD, and is it yourself that's Gndin'
a fault wid me for sayin' that same, when 1
it's yees and the like of yces that's paid by
the year for abusing the ould geutlemen all i
the time!"
The old mstnr turned nwnv to smiln nnd
enjoy the retort. !

when any joke was passed on physicians,
once defended himself from railcry by saying:
"I defy any person that I ever attended,
io accuse me of ignorance or neglect."
' That, you may do safely," replied a wag;"
"for you know, Doctor, dead men tell no
tales."

WHAT THE SOUTH MOST NEEDS, i
It requires? no uncommon sagacity to dis- j
cover that the wealth and strength of the j
South lie in its agricultural resources. So I
far as these remain in a state of nature, or 1
are developed in a way seriously to impair j
the productiveness of the land cu\ivated, the
public cither gains nothing therefrom, or
reaps benefits of the most ephemeral character.
A plain statement of facts will set
this matter in a clear light before the reader.
1st. The Southern States contain over six
hundred million acres of land, which, for
agricultural purposes, is not surpassed, and
probably not equalled, all things considered,
by any other equal area ou the habitable
globe.
2d. All the enclosed land in the South,
according to the census of 1S50, is fifty-five
million three hundred and eighty four thou
saud seven hundred and sis acres, or less
than one acre in ten.
Experience has abundantly proved that
negro labor, as employed in the planting
States, is best adapted to the production of
those tropical and semi-tropical plants which
arc the staple crcps of the South.
1th. Experience has also shown that we
cannot rely on immigrants from Europe to
supply labor for the cultivation of cotton,
rice and sugar in this country.
5th. In consequeuce of the supply of laborers
from Africa having been wholly cut
off siuce 1808, aud tvo great demand for
negro labor in all cotton, sugar and ricegrowing
districts, with the unavoidable high
price of slaves, planters have been placed in
that unnatural and unwise position which
renders it more profitable to wear out the
very cheap lands of the sunny South than to
maintain their virgin fertility. Had labor,
during the last fift}' years, been approximately
as cheap as fanning lands, or were
slaves now as cheap as plantations, they could
be bought at prices that would enable every
enterprising man to improve his so 1, and
thus soon double the wealth and every kind
of business connected therewith, in the slave
holding States. At tlie present pcricctiy aDDoriual,
not to say extravagant price of
good field hands, no one can afford to use
slave labor for the production of manure,
unless it be in purely exceptional cases.?
Asa system of planting applicable to all cotton
and corn fields, ours is emphatically in a
false position.
No thoughtful, intelligent man can survey
the old fields from the Chesapeake to
the Mississippi, and not bear witness to the
fact that there is something fundamentally
wrong in Southern agriculture. To right
this wrong is what the South most needs,
and it can never enjoy lasting prosperity uutil
its citizens have the good sense to find
out wherein the wrong lies, and remove it.
The wise and good men who framed the
Federal Constitution did not, could not,
foresee the importance that was soon to attach
to cotton culture in a part of the United
States; nor how indispensable more laborers
from Africa would become in the
course of time, to meet the growing wants of
the civilized world, in reference to our present
great agricultural and commercial staple.
Could they have lookod into the unknown
future, aud in place of prohibiting
the importation of slaves after the lapse of
twenty years from the adoption of the Constitution,
provided for the suppression of all
the cruelties of "the middle passage," and
given to this class of immigrants into the
Xew World, every needful protection that
good laws rigidly enforced can afford, the
South would to-day be worth three times
more than it is. Land and labor would then
have borne relative prices, based on equal i
availibility and sound agricultural economy
; so that the soil, rapidly appreciating
in value, because of the abuudance of labor
to improve it, would have been too useful
to society to permit its destruction. Now,
the great misfortune lies in the fact that
Southern public sentiment fails to see, as
the people equally fail to feel the popular
error of consuming the natural fruitfuluess
of the fields which both feed and clothe them.
Without laborers to cultivate and improve
the indefinite millions of acres of impoverished
lands, our present practice of skinning
and bleeding the soil will not be abandoned
for many years. The public interest demands
more laborers in the planting Ssates;
and this interest sheuld be respected by all
parties. The highest statistical authorities
at the North estimate each able-bodied adult
immigrant from Europe in into the free
States, as worth one thousand dollars to the
public there. At this rate, two hundred
thousand immigrants a year, give the North,
every twelve months, two hundred million
dollars worth of imported laborers. Will the
planters and business men of the South fold
their arms in idleuess, and say that the large
area of farming lands in this quarter of a
coffimon confederacy, shall have no benefit
whatever from the introduction of human
muscles from abroad ?
Education of the Agriculturist.?
No man is so high as to be independent of
the success of this great interest; no man is
so low as not to be effected by its prosperity
or decline. Agriculture feeds us; to a great
degree it clothes us; without it we could not
have manufactures, and we should not have
commerce. These all stand together like
pillars in a cluster,the largest in the middle
?and that largest is agriculture. We live
in a country of small farms and freehold ten- j
ements; a country which men cultivate with j
their own hands their own fee simple acres,
drawing not only their subsistence, but also
their spirit of independence and manly freedom,
from the ground they plough. They
are at once its owners, its cultivators, and its
defenders. The cultivation of the earth is I
the most important labor of man. Man may
be civilized, in some degree, without great

TnE Subscriber returns his thanks for the very i
liberal patronage received for the past, and
takesthis method to inform thecitizens of York and ,
the surrounding Districts, and the whole South, ,
that he has effected another improvement in the
Cotton Gin and Wheat Thrasher,
that excels any that have ever been introduced
heretofore; and from long experience he has no
fear in challenging any other Factory, either North
or South, to produce an equal. lie feels very confident
in saying to the public, that his Gins excel
in performance any other make or pattern now in ,
use. With dry cotton the roll cannot be broken ,
or made to spew over, wnich no other pretends to
claim, and with good driving power and attend- i
ance, a 45 saw gin, will I
Gin from 4 to 6 Bales or more in a Day
weighing from 350 to 400 lbs.; which is as much
as nny one hand can well handle iu a dny. Any 1
person wanting a superior Gin or Thrasher, can '
be supplied by sending on his order to me at '
lewisville, Chester Dist., S. C. \
Work will be shipped to nny place desired. REPAIRING
