C Dkak Sii:: A sleu t time ago. 1 threw out, a1 it wt-re, lik 'bn al ujvon the waters" a few lines written on ajo-,tal -ar-l (many, many thanks to our gov ernment for the great favor of lu a ostago) and it returned t me in the form of a c-ry kind letter from Rev. Mark S. Gross, of St. Thomas' church, Wilmington, in which he says anion; other interesting things that he had honored me bv sending mv card to votir Excellency. This again teem l to have led vou to forward me several numbers of your excellent paper, the r a km Kit am Mechanic, in which I found reading matter that interested me very much indeed. Please accept my sincere thanks for the anie and be assured that the favor is not only duly appreciated but I trust in the not dis tant future to make some returns for your kindness. All this shows what a simple little postal card may do in the way of advertising and there is in it too, a very u&eful lesson. In fact advertising, wisely and judiciously managed, has now become essential to the success of any enterprise. No, not even a Stato or nation can keep up with the mighty progress of the age without it, and I have always been of the opinion that if the North and South had been brought closer together br direct communication had knoica cavJi other L-tttw there would have been no war. Even now I see by the map that there is no wav to visit vour .tale ex cept by a very circuitous route. There is only about 00 mites of road to make from Morganton in vour State to the it. jl . w . iv. At. auu invii tiij i.oiupie I ' 'I' V- r I I I. ! lion of the Cincinnati Southern would make a direct line from here. I real'v wish it were now completed and 1 would get up an excursion to your line genial climate. Our people here are getting very tired of our loii' tedious winters and are talking seriously of going South. A very largo emigration is pouring into Kansas, Arkansas and Texas, but I tell them that southeast is a far better country to go to than Hie southwest. No bonier ruiliaus, no long continued droughts, no northern blizzards, no grasshoppers, no scarcity of fuel, timber, coal x.c. &c. &.c. The main tiling which has given tu the southwest the stait and contioi of emigration is the yaukee ijciiius of ud- fcrtmii.tj and their cheap i ales of travel. It makes a big ditlerence to a man when he looks about him for atrip of inspec tion whether lie pays 2 cts a mile or 0 cts a mile. In fact there are half a dozen agents here who haw free pauses on ail the roads, southwest and besides they always deduct the it. It. lair when a sale is eifevted. Nothing would tend so much to draw immigration to your State as a liberal spirit on the part of tiie railroads and 1 make free to sug gest lurtiier that if some inducement could be held out to our people here in lhut direction (namely cheap fares) 1 beiie e I could send you some first class citizens to buy your lauds or invest in some other' pursuits. More especially because you have adopted a most excellent plan of con trolling the sale thereof and thus preventing imposition as to title and representations. i had not intended to write you so long a a letter but 1 take such a deep interest in this subject that when I get started it is hard to tell when I will stop. 1 hope 1 have not fatigued you and would feel myself very highly honored to write you or your dislin- few lines from time to time. Your peo ple, I see, must have reached ' bed rock"' long ago, while up North here we have not yet touched hard pan." I judge this by the fact that your taxes are a fraction less than oSJ cents on the 100 valuation, while ours are $1.27. Besides this we have a city tax of ?1.05 on the $100 valuation and a debt besides of over $000,000. With the most profound respect I beg leava to jign myself your Excel lency's humble servant. Wm. B. Walter. Persons wishing new seed, for ex perimenting must apply to Hon. W. G. Le Due, U. S. Commissioner, Washing ton D. C. Our Commissioner has none for distribution. Turf. Field and Farm has a compli ment for Mr. L. M. Biakoleys "Black Ethan Allen.' A writer in same pa per shows that nearly all the fast horses in the country are of southern blood. North Carolina farmers, read a les son: Mr. Jacob Faw, of Forsytlie county now 78 years old lias raised seven chil dren on a farm of TS acres. Has given each of them a fair English education, and to each a farm worth more than the old homestead. He hires all the labor on his farm (being too eld to work himself) and clears $400 per an num on his little farm; but he has im proved and enriched his land from year to year. Yo men who are trying to run large farms, do you see a lesson in this? A SOUTHERNER'S INVENTION. Exclusively for Southern Ueo W- p-ei,t herewith a !- ;!. prepared by Mr. Eugene Harri -, of thi city, representing the Cotton Picker, patent, d May loth. 177. by Mr. O. E. Smith, a gentleman !1 known in the State for hi int re.-t in mechanical in iustri's and laUr-saving middies. He lias built only two or three of hi? "Cotton Piekers." but we ur.d rstr.n.i will engage m,re exten-i vejy in their manufacture In n after. Theinachiae will pay for its.-IP he. -ays "together with the cost of running, in every hun dred bales of cotton, at presf-nt price for picking." As Hon. D. Wvatt Aiken, of South worked the machinery,are high enough to carry everything above the cotton. The front wheel is about half the height ami works under the machine on a pivot joint, to which are attached the horses, that also walk between the rows. The arrangement of three wheels adapts it to turning in the smallest possible space, the uaevjimess of the land, backing in the corners, etc. The picking machinery consists oi a series of linger-shaped cards on india rubber the size of an ordinary walking cane, working alternately up ami down through the stalks as the ma" chine advances. These cards, of which there are tv o hundred, are fastened to levers, worked by cams, and are each independent of the other. In passing over stumps, only those stop Ciat strike it, and they no longer than upon it. These cards or pickers are flexible to a degree that just adapts them to the business for which they are in tended, and so arranged that in going over the field, once in a row, and the machine covering two rows, it would have been picked over twice, and every square inch in the iield would have had its picker, not all at once, but part at the time, and if there were only one boll opened it would get it ; if it was all opened it would get it, whether it was upon the ground or the top of the stalk. These cards are very line, with the teeth all ranging upwards, and will not take hold of anything but the O Sff jm 1-v , v4sT lmt of the opened cotton. Leaves, of merlt throughout, and will bear in twigs and hulls will not stick to them, vestigation, for it sneaks for itself. Man's Inhumanity. Talk about Southern outrages ! Harp on Andersonvilie horrors ! And then compare the chapter with the sworn evidence of tortures inflicted daily upon the wretched convicts in New Jersey State's prison. Reports of horrible cruel ties have been alloat for several years, and a resolution was introduced in the Democratic Convention one vear ao calling for investigation, but nothing came of it. Prisoners usually are afraid to complain where they know it will result in only the doubling of their suffering. The New York Sun, how ever, recently published some facts which forced the New Jersey Legisla ture to investigate the rumors. A fear ful system of torture was brought to light. Men were whipped on their naked backs with broad paddles, in which were many holes, so that each I stroke of the paddle caused dozens of ! blisters to rise on the skin. Other men were stripped naked in winter, and deluged with ice cold water from a force pump. Others were held down, while alcohol was poured on their skin, and lighted. "It made .a sore, generally about six inches long, and three inches wide, "but the man got over it in a few weeks" coollv testi fied one of the turnkeys. Another punishment was "gagging with the boot heel;" a concern like the high heel of a lady's boot, which being strapped in the man's mouth almost suifocated him, besides sickening him with the taste of the dirty leather. "Have seen men vomit, when relieved of tiie gag" said one turnkev. But worse than ail was the "sti etch er," an iron apparatus by which the man was hauded up, by the wrists, until his toes barely touched the tloor, and sustained the weight of ids body. A chain kept him from drawing up his feet even to swing. This devilish machine usually forced the victim to beg freedom at the end of three min utes, but generally they were kept swinging until they fainted. Physi cians say tiiis torture in many cases will produce death in ten minutes. Once they were justilied by the death j of the victim. A witness, one f i the turnkeys; testified about as fol lows: "After Snook was strung up J the marshal looked in upon him. "Do , you mean to kill me V" was the piti ful cry of tiie suifering man. He was told he would be treated the same as tho rest if he would behave himself.

The whole machine is reduced to us lowest simplicity, very durable, easily managed, and under perfect control of tiie driver. It is automatic in all its operations, taking care of it self and performing its work without assistance. To stop the pic-king while going along, the driver has inerelv to lean back against the seat, which is hinged with spring catcher, ami the picking arrangement stops up in the body and can be driven to the place of deposit unloaded and return without tho throwing of wheels in or out of gear. The machine costs three hun dred d iiurs, and will Iat as long as farming implements generally, every piece of which is duplicated with the facility of adjusting a plow point. It is estimated to pick out the cotton at a cost of one dollar pir lt.de, and will gatiier all that can be gone over in a di.y at plow horse gait, once in a row, and without perceptible damage to the stalks, and what heretofore seemed an impossibility, is just as simple and cer- tain as a sheep catching cuckle burrs j and not the leaves, with the order re- ! v,crstjai UliS catches the sneep or ratner 1 thn i.tr.oi vi'ool ..nlo w. was still and motionless. Examina tion showed that he was death &aw a female after she had been strung up and saw black-and-blue marks from the hand cull's on the woman's arms."' Josv-ph R. Bergg, a deputy keeper, testilied: There are live dungeons; three have stretchers and two of them bolts and chains; nearly every day men are put in dungeons, sometimes live at a time; some make a great deal of noise; saw men chained down so that they could not get up; saw a man named Lynch chained up; he had come out of the asylum; he was a very bad and a dangerous man; have heard men beg and pray to be taken out from the stretcher ; was present when men were stretched ; helped to carry Snook out; his ces were partially open; Snook died about half-past six in the uiorning ; the day before the man icd well.' Suplementing this appalling story are minor brutaluies, sucii as tiie booi heel gag, an immense block inserted in the mouth and kept ia place by a string fastened to the heel ; lite douche of icy water upon the naked shivering body ; tiie wrists worn to the bone ; the sick man, trembling with weak ness, and punished for his inability to do work, with other species of torture that scarcely would have suggested themselves to a Sioux Indian or tiu Old Man of the Mountain" himself." And -so, the testimony proceeds through column alter column of shocking details. Wekiiow, from unhappy experience, that the fouiesi cruelties are practiced by understrappers usally selected for their cold blooded ferocity; even in prisons, whose Superintendents are kindly and humanely disposed. Of course, tii ere are vile wretches for whom no punishment can seem too t'cvere. But if the establishment of penitentiaries is to reform tho crimi nal he ought not to be subjected to a system of daily badgering that must keep alive his woiot passions. Alfalfa. L. J.
