[Wh# P aper Party, >
When Groat packed the Su
preme Court of the United States
for ^tbe pàrpose of deoiding that
** paper money " was equal to coin,
and was a *' legal tender," the rad
ical party made itself' solely re
sponsible for the disasters and dis
tress which has come upon the
eouatrv. The paper party is the
radical party. Jackson, Benton,
all the statesmen of the demo
•ratio party have been agreed that
paper money is a direct injury to
the labor, industry, business, and
eomrierce of this country.
The very tnomentGrant's packed
Supreme Court decided that a rag
dollar, as they call it, was equal to
a gold dollar, then bc^an the
course of speculation which has
almost ruined every industry in
the land, impoverished labor, and
*d<fe it pay out of its wages the
difference between currency and
nioney. If the laboring men and
thp mechanics, and the industrious
class are willing to bear this bur
den, and pay tbis difference, fifteen
cents on tbe hundred now, out of
wages, then they can best serve
their interests by voting for the
paper party, the negro, and all the
wit of It.—[C o mmo nwealth.
First Receipt of New Crop Rice
this Season.
The Upper Coast steamer Mary
lila came in on Wednesday even
ing the 21st Hist., with 15 sacks of
fiew (rough) rice', in the paddy, the
first this season. It was raised on
Mr. W. H. Harris's Good Hope
plantation, St. Charles parish, and
consigned to tbe Perseverance
Rice Mill, where it will be milled
ànd will be placed on the market,
when the classification will be
given. .1 .•
rWa learn that its appearance in
dicates a favorable yield, being of
fine quality and firm and well de
veloped pods. It is intimated that
Mr. H arris's yield will not be less
than 12,000 barrels of good rice.
. Last year the first received was
on the 20th of July, one day ear
lier, anjl the earliest over received.
The year before the first receipts
were on the 27th of July. All from
Mh Harris's plantation. Last j-ear
Ü, classed prime and sold at 10
cent«, and the year before it sold
alao at 10 cents per pound.—[N.

An Editor's Appeal.—As the
report that we are very wealthy
has gone nbroad among our sub
scribers, and haR made them awful
alow about paying up, thinking,
doubtless, we don't want the
money, wo boston to say that the
report of our wealth is false in
every particular. If ocean steam
ers were Soiling at a cent a dozeu
wo couldn't make the first payment
on a canoe. The lightning of pov
erty has struck us square, and had
it not beeh for an armful of hay
our devil managed to steal from a
blind mule, our large and interest
ing . finally would be without a
mouthful to eat at this moment.
Is thin not a sad picture, and can
jau, delinquent subscribers, look
upon it without fceliog tbo green
backs rustle with indignation in
your poeket-lmokH? We do not
like to dun, but wo must, if you
fail to tako tho hint.—[Shenan
doah (Va.) Democrat.
, A : recent decision of tbe Pope
makes it proper for Roman Catho*
lies to join the Grange organiza
tion if they find nothing in the or
ém which is " inconsistent with
thtfr duty to tbe church." Many
thousand Catholic farmers have
been desirous of becoming Gran
ged, I but have been deterred by
the stringent ruling of tbe church,
which forbids the members to as
sociate themselves with secret or
ders. The Pope's decision is quite
a concession, as the Grango is a
secret aooiety. And again it is a
conquest of the church, in a meas
ure. as giving her another basis of
eedbsiastical influence. The pe
culiarity of the Pope's ruling is
that ho is especially litter against
the enter of Freemasons, which
oan not bavo any more of evil in Jt
"WSf Î end yet he per
le faithful to join tbe latter
ff ' tfhere the members are
mod by a secret oath. It
/toss be of immeaae nà
to the Grange organize
an accession of strength
and influence.—[Courier-Journal.

The Southern Farmer's Friend.
T hat excellent weekly
Agricultural paper, OUR HOME
JOURNAL, commenced its Ninth Volume in
January of tbis year. This is, without doubt,
the most valuab'e Weekly Agricultural Journal
in tbe South, and every live farmer and planter
ought to be a constant reader of it. as any one
number is worth tbo subsoription price, which
has been rodueed to $2 (55 per year, including
postage. Aside from this, tho publisher gives
a magnificent Cbromo, whioh alone is worth
all that'is charged for the papor. As an Agri
cultural and Family paper, Our Home Jour
sal cannot fail to be popular,for its large corps
o' editors and contributors from nearly every
section of tbo South aid in making it of great
value to tbe farmer aDd planter in all their
various pursuits.
Those who are not already subscribers can
beoome so by addressing Our Home Journal,
New Orleans, and inclosing $2 65 for a year's
subscription, and we would advise every iutel«
ligent planter and farmer in the South to
subscribe for and read it weekly. Aside from
its valuable Agricultural matter, it contains a
complete market report, tho important news of
the country, as well as va'uable reading for the
family. It is printed on fine book paper, and is
deoidedly the neatest weekly paper in tbe South.
The rapid increase of its subscription list has
enabled the Publisher to reduce the pri-e to
93 05 for singlo subscriptions, and to $2 15 in
Clubs of twenty or more.
We will furnish tho Ecno and Home Jour
nal to all cash suberibers at 93 75 net, with
