Jov ! thou hes: passel tho portal,
Hast L ait. ed the shining shore,
And disrobed of thc mortal
>hall "live to die no more."
'Iwa* thine at life's calm closing.
Wbi'e neath tho ehast'ning rod,
To whisper ere reposing
"Trust thou, oh! trust in God."
That trort shall hallow ever
Thy tranquil place ofrest.
Though lingering sadness never
Leave tho-e thy love hus blest.
But oh I 'twill be that sadness.
Tinged with no shade of gloom,
For thou art now where gladness
BlendB radiance with the tomb.
There hope shall have fruition.
And there tn s g,Iden chain,
Caught np from earthly vision,
Forever bright remain.
Then though our heart-strings quiver
Beneath the reaper's breath,
Our free-born souls forever,
Will triumph over death.
Then rest, beloved and dearest.
Where lingering shades lie deep.
Though over thee, earth's fairest
The pearly dow-drops weep;
We know thy spirit riven
Has reached the crystal dome,
And all the hosts of Heaven
Murmured thy welcome home.
A "J?ATE RX AV GOVEBXHENT.
Tho .Yew York Herald the Organ ot*
President Grant-A Brilliant Pro?
gramme-Cakes and Ale for Every,
body-Concerta, Them rea and Trotting
A Washington letter to tho Baltimore Ga?
zette says :
Tho New York Herald is known here to be
. the "veritable mouth-piece of General Grant..
' The managing editor, (Bennett, Junior) w-e
I here a few days ago, and had loug conferences
with the President. The recent extraordioary.
" articles which have appeared in that journal
bave, therefore, excited unusual attention.
There can be no longer a doubt that tbe new
, administration intends, as soon as Congress
adjourns and the spoils are all divided among
the faithful, to st: ike out upon a bold and bril
. liant progiarome to capture the populace. Tho
.' first thing proposed by the Herald to be done
in to convert tbe Morse telegraph into a purely
national beneficence as an ent?rine; wedge;
.'. secondly, to improve tho public morals by
.? seizing upon all theatres, concert balls
and al] other places of nocturnal amuse
. ment, and regulating by national orders
sot only the character of the perform?
ances, but tho price ot admission, which ia to
be merely nominal, enabling the most bumble
?without regard to race or color) to become
rec actors or spectators, as the case may be.
A grand national amphitheatre at the national
metropolis, built after the manner of the Ko?
rnau, and supported by the public funds, as in
lYar.ce at this day, may servo as a model for
the provinces. The onslaught recently made
by tbo special New York organ, and re-echoed
by the independent press generally, upon tbe
immor..titles of the "Can-can," will servo to
drown all outcries about constitutional power.
Thirdly. National field sports in open day must
not languish for the want of the fostering care
.' of a paternal government. The article in the
Special organ, in which National Horse Racing
is recommended on government account,
comes ander this head. The suggestions upon
this item are so extravagant that I should
scarcely be credited without literal quotation
from the Herald itself. It says:
"Tbe establishment of a race course in the
vicinity of Washington, nnder the auspices of
the government, and under the control of the
Agricultura! Department, would p'Jbrd a ready
means of restoring the thoroughbred horse
to a sncb a degree of usefulness as would ren?
der bim of the highest valne to the coontry,
and inaugurate a new era of breeding through?
out the land, and Jo away with ali inferior
i bones as stallions. An appropriatiou by Con?
gress of ono hundred thousand dollars a year
to the Agricultural Department for tho pur?
pose of distribution as prizes would be a great
inducement to breeders to enter into active
competition for such premiums as might be
According to this plan, the government is to
put up the stakes, and tho Commissioner of
Agriculture is to be the stakeholder, os follows:
"We might suggest that a prize of ten thous
_ and dollars be awarded to the winner of the
four mile heat running race, with six thousand
to tbe second horse, three thousand to the
third and one thousmd to tbe fourth. The
name premium should be awarded to the trot?
ting stallions. This would give two meetings
a year-one in the spring, exclusively for the
running horse, and the other in the autumn for
The particular mention made of the "trot
. ting stallions" and of "the trotter" has the ear?
mark of authority, when we tnru back to think
of Dexter, and Bonner, and the General. Bat
tbe pnblic is not left to conjecture up m so im?
portant a point. The Herald distinctly states,
SS rf empowered, that "an appropriation for the
purposes mentioned above would undoubtedly
receive the sanction of the President."
AFFAIRS IX TBE STATE.
There will be a meeting of the planters of
Fairfield District held at the courthouse in
Wransboro', on Mondey, 18th of .April, for the
. parp?se of organizing an association and ap?
pointing delegates to meet a general conven?
ci?n of planters in Columbia on the 28 th inst.,
-'-and-for sncb other- purposes as may have a
tendency to promote the best interests of the
York County will not be represented in the
State Agricultural Convention, and the En?
quirer deplores the fact.
The freight train on the C. and S. C. Rail?
road ran over a man by the name of George
McGinnis, on Tuesday afternoon last, about a
mile from Fort Ullis. He was lying across the
- -track, and the engineer did not discover him
in time to stop the train. He lived bot a short
time after being ran over.
A heavy frost occurred on Monday last,
which, we think, injured the fruit prospect
seriously, and the early vegetables slightly.
Sale-day in Darlington drew out a small at?
tendance; but Uttle property sold by the
sheriff, and that little bought in bv parties
holding liena acrainst it.
The Darlington Democrat says : "On Satur?
day night last, a band of negroes (Governor
Scott's militia) boldly entered the house of
Mrs. Ti m m ons, a widow lady, living near Tim
monaville, rifled ber trunk m her presence,
went into ber smoke-house, took every piece
of meat therefrom, and tben departed. How
long are these things to be endured."
On tbe afternoon of the 6th instant, the citi?
zens of Camden were startled by the alarm of
fire. The flame s were discovered in full head?
way among some old, dry wooden buildings in
rear of tbe principal business part of the town.
The fire companies and the citizens generally
turned oat in fall force, and put forth the most
strenuous and well directed efforts to arrest
the progress of the destructive element. For
some time the issue of the contest was doubt?
ful, the fire burning fiercely, close in the rear
of several stores. But at the most critical
moment, the wind sprung from a favorable
quarter, blowing the dames from the buildings
most in danger, and enabled tho firemen to get
them under their control. The fire is thought
to have originated in a Btablo in the rear of
the building owned by Mr. William Johnson.
It is fortunate that the fire occurred when it
did, a nett)urn t up what has long been a source
of apprehension to many. If it hail broken
ont at night, when tho wind was hitrh, the con?
sequences might have been ruinous. As it
waa, no property of any great value was de?

THE XAMIE ELAST.
The Spartanburg Sparlan, in its last issue,
\?e aie glad to hear that our enterprising
I fel'ow-citizen, HOD. Joel Foster, proposes to
! try a fair experiment on tho new ramie plant.
He has purchaicd a number of these plant ?,
and we bopeis thus preparing a new species
ol labor and profit for our peoplo This plan t
is entirely new to us, and perhaps your read -
ers may be glad to have such information as
we have beeo able to gather as to its his?
tory, lt belongs, like the hemp and the nettle,
io the Urticacce, its botanical name being
lioelimcria tenacessima. It was brought
from Java to Paris in 1814, and raised
aa a hot-house plant by the Naturalist
Blame. A few years after Mr. Bozel,
President of tba Horticultural Institute of
iJnl"iuai determined to iutroduce it to some
Southern congenial climate. Ho went to Java
and spent a year to study its nature ar .cul?
ture. While on his way to Mexico City with a
supply of roots, he was robbed by Mexican
I banditti of his treasures. Several attempts
I were made to replace them before he succeeded
in getting a now supply as far as En ?land,
where the roots were cared for in a hot houso,
to give them strength for a long voyage. At
last iu 1859, he succeeded in getting a supply
of roots, and within two years was the owner
of a thriving plantation. He invented suitable
machinery, by wbich the stalks were con?
verted within twenty-four hours after cutting
into long Bkeina of pare white and eilk-hke
fibres, ready for spinning. He makes in
Mexico five crops in one year. The matured
plant, which is perennial, attains, when well
rooted, the height of twenty feet. Its fibre is
said to be stronger than hemp, a rut as fine and
white, and twice as durable as linen, and more
productive than cottou. In 1865, Mr. Bozo.'
exported to England over 5000 pounds, which
ho sold t*t double the price of the best quality
of cotton. A year ago be visited Cuba with
specimens which attracted great attention from
the planters there,who thought this new article
might supplant their staples, sugar and coffee.
We understand the new 6piing goods for ladies'
wear. Leno (?), is in part made from this new
textile fabric;, so that our ladies can judee of
its cheapness, comfort aud durability compar?
ed with cotton. Cheaper food, cheaper lodg?
ing, and cheaper clothing, are three pressing
wants of our day. Perhaps tho third of these
has been lound iu ramie.

Thc above analysis indicates a Manorial Superphosphate of Lime of the highest grade ordi?
narily found in the American market. Its largo amount of Soluble Phosphoric Acid supplies
an active nutriment for the development and maturity of tho fotitage. The Sulphuric Acid
which it contains, by chemical affinity with the olements of moarsoils, contribute to its Fer?
tilizing Properties. To show its best effects, this Superphosphate should ba applied under
and in contact with the Seed, and with a moderately shallow covering of soil.
