sere is nothing nutritious in coffee it would
e better to drink our milk and sugar by
self. If our cofTee were made right, n
no would put sugar in it; therefore, what
uts might be baurded, that are now ex
ended to sugar !
In our ignorance too, of the proper ties

ght, is not the tina3 to drink it, unless
ve desiga to sit up and keel awake, like
sentinel, or a nurse at the bed side of the

n as much as having slept all night, we
ire wide awake, and resusitated by sleep,
and at that hour, so it follows that the din
aer hour, is also, the cofi.e hour.
In the primal age of our republic, the
'Ifnmiontownians, Black-river-T'ackies and
Samy-Swampers, were ignorant of the
nocturnal god of malaria, and even if they
had not been, had not lir the most part,
the means of bilding, traied dwelling
htotuses, closely ceiled and glazed, for the
purpose of shutting him out, as they did
n the rich and haughty high-hills. The
result was that the latter slept morbidly,
and was startled all night by spectoru and
hobigoih!ias, (the result of rarefied and con
fined ar) and whenr morning carme, could
not open their eyes. and found it neces.
siry to take " tody in the morning,"
or coflee ere they could rise from
hed ; whereas, the pitey-woods folks,
in their open log cahhins, could - rise
with the lark, "Nature's great restorer"
having been sound and undisturbed; and
hence it is, they did not requirn "Toddy in
the rmorning, or coffee, to rouse them up.
And so it is even unto this day, the cus
tom prevails among the Republican Aris
tocracy, to drink coffee for breakfast; and
armorg ithe piney woods folks who have
grown rich and aristocratic in their turn
to drink it for dinner, the time, insooth
at which, it does us most good,-in as, -
mruch, ias in a state of sound nature, they
never learnt to fear the nocturnal god of
Santee Swanp-malaria.
So let us sleep with windows up,
And have no cofliee, when we sup,
So that we sleep sound, and wake,
Just at the hour of day.breaw,
Rest-.red so much, that ncvte a sinner,
WIll coffee need, till after dinner,
For, it we do not drink it then
I'm shure 'tis so with niost of me.
We'll lie and sleep, till Summer-flies
Suggest to ts 'tis time to rise.

1ellor Citi:ens: More than a year ago
I put a notice im t'ie Sumter Banner saying
that I would not. he a candidate again for

mwore thin one person, who had intention<i
of runnrtring for the ''tie', that I would not
run again; but I recollect th:t I then did rnot
state rmy reasons for thus declinmrng to o'i'cr
for the said oil! e, which I will now do. Up
to that time. (I mean the tiun- of ry last
electiotn) staine coin1:ants hadl been mrade
aga inst the customi of gving this office to
one man so long, it being profitatble on. ac

Ilan pesos I ma~y sa:y hrundreds in the

arid I have til to thi:s time an-awered them
lhat I couldl not publlish aiyself as-a canidi
date (though the (idiouts features of tire de
relbct law hiad baeen repealed) bait yet if ehey
would run rme rind elect mec I woutd-serve to
