"Wc innkc thc following extract
from a letter received from n sub?
scriber in Enterprise, Mississippi:
ENTERPRISE, MISS., May 10, 18(37.
MESSRS. EDITORS: Wo must now
conform to thc law-making power,
right or wroug. Wo cannot stop
now to inquire into the Acts of Con?
gress. Wo have to govern ourselves
according to tho mandato that has
been issued. Ho who counsels to
the contrary is an unsafe loader at
this time. Wo must moot tho mea?
sures as they present themselves.
Wo nre a defeated people. To the
sword was left tho arbitrament of
questions involving all our rights in
the premises; that two-edged instru
meut has cut asunder every principle
contended for by tho South. Weare
no longer a people to dictate terms;
there is no alternativo left but to
snbmit to tho powers that be. We
aro now in ail attitude never contem?
plated by auy party in the laud. Tho
negro now presents himself ns a freo
citizeu, clothed in all the habilameuts
of sovereignty-made so by a power
which wc aro unable to resist; and it
now behooves us to shape our ,policy
as to act in harmony within the order
of things as they present themselves.
Tho course marked out for us to
pursue is a very plain one, both in a
political and pecuniary point of view.
Inaction in tho premises will prove
fatal to us and to our posterity. The
question now presents itself in this
wise-what shall we do to be saved?
Tho solution is at hand-go to work,
remodel the State Governments ac?
cording to thc law of Congress, de?
velop tho "industrial resources" of
the South-agricultural and manu?
factories. Take South Carolina, for
instauco. No State in tho Union has
greater resources. I know the old
\ State well; 1 know the material she
is possessed of; I have worked bel?
lands, and I have for tho last twenty
years worked the lands here. Take a
series of years, and a planter will
realize as much in South Carolina as
he will here. There are no better
farming lands than are to be found
on tho Con garee ami Wateree Rivers
-in fact, on all your principal riv rs
and creeks. You have ono very im?
portant feature over our Western
lands-that is, the locality of your
lauds; their contiguity to healthy
and desirable settlements aro to be
found everywhere. Add to that your
water power for manufacturing pur?
poses, and the facility for getting
their produce to all parts, should
stimulate your people to act in uni?
son, and harmonize yourselves with
the new state of things in your midst.
I love South Carolina, "with all her
faults.'" (Really, I do not know
that she has any more than the other
Southern States-not one-tenth ns
much as some other States I could
I think the freedmen of your State,
in leaving it to hunt work in tho
other States, are pursuing an unwise
course. They are not at this time
fully prepared to travel about as the
white man doe.;. They lind better
remain in their old neighborhoods;
they will find that their former
owners are their best friends.
The day they commence, immigra?
tion, from that period they may date
tho commencement of their extinc
tion as a raco; as thc Indian has
gone, so will tho negro. Parcel out
your lands among tho freedmen-sell
to them upon such terms as they and
you eau live. They must become
identified in the soil; they will then
vote with you on all important ques?
tions-your interest will bo theirs
they will soon learn to sustain the
policy which will add to their pros
perity and happiness.
The negro is moro to bo relied on
than tho foreigner. Before you can
learn the latter-at least by tho timo
you learn him-to cultivate cotton
nnd rico, ho will leave you. You have
tho destiny of yourselves and chil?
dren in your own hands; fashion it
so that no detriment will follow in its

THE TRIUMPH OF ART!
. MORE TESTIMONY IN FAVOR OF
Heinitsh's Queen's Delight.
IEXTRACTS FROM LETTERS: ?'Tho
li Queen's Delight is beginning to
awaken tho attention of our physicians.
Its remarkable curative power is seen in
its wonderful effect UpOU disease. A-< a
blood purifier, there is ito medicine like it
known to tho profession. A gentleman
told mo that his son has been taking the
Queen's Delight, and is moro benefited by
it than by any other medicine. He wants
a dozen bottles."
Extract from a letter: "It is duo to yon
to state in this public manner, in order
that the people may know tho truth, that
I have tried your t?neon's Delight, and
found it not only what you said it was-"a
pure medicino"-but tho Lest medicine I
have ever taken for eruptions and general
bad health. 1 had au eruption all over my
body, with impaired digestion and disor?
dered liver, and have tried a great many
medicines without any benefit. I have
taken one bottle of your Queen's Delight,
the eruption has disappeared, my appetite
is bettor, my liver und digestion is im?
proved. I am satisfied one or two more
bottles will cure inc."
Extract from a letter: "At the close of
the war, my constitution was shattered. I
could not cat, sloop or perform any duty
whatever, snob was my prostrate condi?
tion. Modicine and medical aid I had in
abundance, such was my condition up to a
few months since, when I began the use of
your Queen's Delight. I hine used two
bottles, my constitution is greatly im?
proved, my nm otite ia good, enjoy refresh?
ing sleep, and am able to perform my share
of daily labor.'"
Extract from a letter -Wonderful effect
of only ono bottlo: "1 hive used only a
hall bottle of 'Queen's Delight' for boils
and eruptions of tho skiu and itching hu?
mors of the blood, whieh annoyed me very
much. I am entirely cured, [think your
medicine a valuable one."
A remarkable case ol liver complaint and
headache cured by tho usc ol '.Heinitsh's
Queen's Delight:" A lady of unquestioned
worth and reputation voluntarily gives tes?
timony of tho wonderful effects of t li SM
medicine. She has been from early ; ? ars
a martyr to headaches, caused by imper?
fect action of tho liver, producing intonso
heudache and pain over the eyes. She has
taken only tour bottles, and assures us of
t|io perfect euro it baa made. She now en?
joys good h' alth.
Still another: "During last spring, I had
been troubled with obstinate chills and
lever, whieh, when cured, left my .system
in a wretched condition, blood impure, and
I was afflicted with an angry, ami, as I at
one timo thought, an incurable, cutaneous
eruption over my entire body. Tho most
violent remedies suggested failed to work
a cure, until, at th" instance of a friend, I
tried Dr. Heinitab's Queen's Delight. Less
than two bottles cured me, leaving my skin
in a healthy condition. My general health
is as good as ever. For such purnosea, I
have, over siueo my cure, unhesitatingly
recommended your Queen's Delight.''
Don't buy any but tho right kind. All
genuino Queen's Delight has tho copy-right
mark on tho outsido, and it is the only
medicine which produces theao wonderful
cures. For salo wholesale and retail at
