Sickness .—The dengue or "break-bone" fever has been prevalent for some weoksin our city, confining its attacks principally to the unaccluaated. With this exception, we way boast of having had this season one of the healthiest communities in the South. -—-— I » » —-— The Cotton Woru .—We laarn by a friend just from Grosse Tete and Marin gouin, that the army worms made their appearance on the plantations in those re gions on Thursday night last, and on Fri day morning, the effects of this their sec ond advent over there, were made mani fest in the destruction of hundreds of acres of cotton. The younger plant, is in a fair •way of being totally destroyed. Killed.—A man by the name of Rey nolds , notorious throughout the back country, for his numerous crimes, was kill ed, we learn, a few days since, in Livings ton parish, by having the top of his head shot off. He was, we believe a resident of said parish, and wan a terrer to the neigh borhood. J5jjF"The Herald's Washington special nays it is understood to be contemplated by the President to withdraw shortly the troops from the South, leaving States lately in the rebellion to re-organize on a basis of civil government precisely as before the lato war, excepting slavcj-y. Hardly a soldier will be left except such as are nocessary to garrison forts, and such ss are in the 'Northern States will be re tained only for the purpose of meeting any emergencies arising from the action of foreign powers. » j-îf A Now York correspondent of the Philadelphia Frets says the Imperialists in Mexico, have fojeed the army of the Re publicans from the Rio Grande, and are now occupying the whole country with the exception of Chihuahua, in which Juarez and his government were attempting to make a last stand. The retreat of the Mexicans is represented as having been Tather a panic. The information is obtained from a Mexican gentleman of high character, and from a vessel recently arrived from Guaya nas, a seaport town of Sonora. l^T We see it stated that the new frac tional currency will be printed upon paper which cannot be manufactured outside of the Treasury Department. A peculiarity of the paper is, that it can be washed. Aew Orleans Picayune. Abtkmos Ward on Reoboanjzation.— Artemu» Ward, in a recent letter, thus gives an idea of reorganization : 1 have never attempted to reorganize my wife but once. I shall never attempt it again. I'd tyn to a. public dinner, and had allowed myself into drinkin' several people's health; and wishing to make 'em as robust as possible I continued drinkin' their health until my own became affected. The consekens was'l presented myself at Betsy's'bedside, late at night, with con aiderable liquor concealed about my per son. I had somehow got posseshun of a hosswhip on my way home. Rcmember rin' some cranky observashuns of Mrs. Ward'» in the morning, I snapt the whip putty lively, and in h loud voice said, '•Betsy you need rcorganizin'. I have come, Betsy," I continued—crankin' the whip o'er the bed—"I have come to reor ganize you." That nite I dreamed that somebody had laid a liosswhip over mesev'rii times; and when I woke up 1 found she had. 1 haint drunk much of anything since, and if I ever have any reorganizin' job on hand, I'll lot it out." A Nice Idea,—A London lady, corres ponding with her country cousins through the medium of the prose, mentions a novel, beautiful, and withal inexpensive, orna ment for the dinner table. She says : •Talking of dinners, lot me toll you of a new idea. I was present at a very recherche entertainment, the other day, where I saw the following arrangement« for the centre of the table: There was a large square block of Wendham Lake ice, weighing, I should say, at ioast twenty-five pounds, •which was placed on glass casters, iu a dish or trough of some kind; the dish was ren dered quite invisible by being entirely filled with moss, into which soaked the water which molted from the ice. Delicate ferns t'iinged the edge, and bright colored flow ers wore imbedded in the moss, the foliage reaching above the lower edge of the ice. The object of raising the blocK on casters is to prevent the water from accelerating the melting of tho mass. Over the icobcrg there wcro two arches, prettily arranged, crossing each other; they were, apparently, of cane, and were bonud by garlands of ilowora. The effect wo*enchanting. The atmosphere was delightfully coolcd; the (lowers wore kept fresh; and the sight of the trunsluceut mass was far prettier than the most costly center pieces of gold or sil ver plato. I bolieve Ï am right in stating that this novel idea first mado 5 te appear ances at Orleans House, Twickecham. It eau be so readily adopted, that I fait you would be glad of the suggestion." The labor System of the South. The prime obstacle to a successful return of the Southern Statos to anything like a condition of general or permanent pros perity, in, without question, a well defined and well regulated system of agricultural labor. Thechief difficulty seems to bo how to reconcile industrial regulations and re quirements with the " largest liberty" to labor or not, as suits the ideas or inclina tions of the laborer. In all well regulated systems, where usage is law, and salutary legal enactments interpose to protect em ployer and employee alike, certain rales of" labor are prescribed under certain remu nerative considerations, which cannot be violated with impunity. A system founded on mutuai safeguards like these insures a given quantum of labor within specified hours to the employer, and a fixed rate of compensation to the em ployee, and incase of default in the fulfill ment of either of these obligations, the party suffering, can have due,and compul sory recourse before the proper tribunals The earliest practicable organization of such a system is what is most earnestly demanded in tho South at this time. Aside from local circumstances and necessities that plead with trumpet-tongue fora re formation in our present labor system, the subject is so wide-spread and important in its national bearings, as to entitle it to something more than the mere spasmodic experiments of inexperienced theorists act ing under authority from the General Gov ern nient. The ruinous consequences to the agricul tural interests of the South which must inevitably and perpetually follow an im practicable labor system, teil with corre sponding affcct upon the financial resources of the nation. 1'roperiy cticouragnd and supported, the South, might become as formerly a most powerful contributor to the national exchequer, and its entire population—white and black—by re- estab lishing its industrial pursuits on a basis mutually advantageous and secure, might do more to facilitate the work of civil re organization than anything else that could be conceived. As well uudertake to har monie» order with chaos as attempt to bring about a perfect settlement and pa cification of the body politic under the ex isting disjointed condition of our labor sys tem. The good order and well being of ommunitios and individuals ma essen tially dependent on firmly established and faithfully executed laws and rules for the governance of th« laboring classes ami their employers. Incertain localities, wi re happy to perceive that the light of ex perienco is prompting to wholesome efforts n this direction, and achieving partial good, which, it is to be hoped, may becotno universal. The Clarksville ! Tenn. ) Chronicle pub lishes tho following, as embracing a set of rules and regulations adopted by Col. Da VI», who has charge of the Frcodmen's Bu reau at that point. The features presented iu Col. Davis ' policy aro perhaps tho most sensible and feasible of any which have yet emanated from any of the bureaus; and us mfii we commend them: ROLES AND REttCLATIONS FOR FARM HA nds. 1. One-halt of the wages of the employe will be retained by tho employer, until the en^ of the contract for its faithful perform ance. 2. The employes will be required to rise at daybreak, each one to feed and take care of the stock allotted to him, or peform any other business that may be assigned him; to eat their breakfast and be ready for work at the signal, which will be given when the son is half an hour high. All time lost after the signal is given will be de ducted. 3. No general congregation will be al lowed during working hours. 4. Bad work will be assessed at its proper value. 5. For disobedience one dollar will be deducted. 6. Neglect of duty and leaving without permission will be considered disobedience. 7. No live stock will be permitted to be rained by the employes, without special contract. $. Apples, poaches and melons, or any other product of the farm taken by the employee, without permission of the em ployer, will be charged for. 0. The employee shall receive no visitors during work hours. 10. Three-quarters of an hour will be al lowed during the winter months for din ner, and one hour and a halt during the months of June, July and August. 11. Impudence, swearing, or indecent and unseemly language to, or in the pres ence of the employer or his family, or agent, or quarreling or fighting, so as to disturb the peace of the farm, will be fined one dollar for the first offence, and, if re peated, will be followed by dismissal arid loss of auch pay as shall be adjudged against him by proper authority. 12. All difficulties that may arise be tween the employes shall be adjusted by the employer, and, if not satisfactory, an appeal may be taken to an agent of tho Ü. S. Government or a magistrate. IS. All abuse of stock, or willful break ing of tools, or throwing away gear, &c., will be charged against the employee. 14. Good and sufficient rations will be furnished by the employer, not, however, to exceed six pounds of bacon aud one peck of meal por week for each adult. 15. House rant and fuel will be furnish ed, free, by the employer. 16. No night work will be required of tho employee but such a» the necessities of the larni absolutely demand—such as tying up fodder, firing tobacco, setting plant beds afire, securing a crop from the Irost, «Sic. 17. A cheerful aud willing performance of duty will be required by the employee. IS. Stock must &«, fed and attended to on Sunday. 1& The women will be required to do the cooking in rotation on Sunday. 2ft. The employee will be expected to look after and study the interests of his em ployer; to inform him of anything that is goiug ami8.«,^to be peacable, orderly, and pleasant; to discourage theft, and endeavor by his conduct to establish a character for honesty, industry and thrift. 21. In case of any controversy in regard to tho contract or its regulations, between the employer and employee, the agent of the Bureau for the county shall be tho common arbiter to whom the difficulty shall be referred. SOUTHERN CROPS. [ Crom the New Orleans True Delta, 13th inst.] The regular appearance of the army worm, and the destruction to tho cotton crop caused thereby, has induced many of our cotemporaries to discuss the question whether a partial abandonment of the cul tivation ot cotton by our planters would not bo decidedly advantageous and profit able, provided the same labor, skill and attention were bestowed upon the growing of other crops. That a diversification of labor would be attended with beneficial results wo have always believed. The policy of throwing nearly the whole operative force of the South upon the cultivation of two or three leading staples, we have never looked n pon as correct. Our labor should always have been self-auBtainiug—we should have pro duced nearly everything we required for the support of' our plantations—but instead of that the system has been to cultivate sugar or cotton, as the case might be, and purchase everything needful in the open markets. This pian lias led to innumera ble bankruptcies, much suffering, and lias had an impoverishing effect upon the States of the South generally. But "cotton on tho brain" has been » disease of long standing iu the Southern portion of tho American Union. It is raging new with greater intensity than ever. Every one who owns a piece of land, a plow, mule and hoe, "has got it bad." The idea of raising corn, wheat, pork and other indispensables, which could be easily done without materially lessening their crops of tho staple, never enters their minds—everything is merged in cotton, cotton, cotton. We opine, however, if the army worm continues its ravages much longer, that an effectual cure of the malig nant disease referred to will be effected. The Southern States should produce an abundance of breadstuff's, not only for their own use, but for export. In all the Gulf States rice, in ample quantities, can be grown. We should pay particular atten In tion to tho raising of cattle and hogs. stead of buying a pound of bacon, lard or cured beef, wo should become large sellers instead of purchasers. No people on earth have equal facilities in these par ticulars. The bost tobacco known to the markets of the world is grown, cured and manufactured in Louisiana. This product could be increased fifty or a hundred fold in this State within a brief peiiod, and it would yield more profitable returns to those engagod in it than either sugar or cotton. On this point the Frank lin (St. Mary) Planters' Banner, ruakes the following suggestions, which we take pleasure in subjoining : "Take eight of the i'OBt, acres of land and plant it in tobacco. From the eight acres six thousand pounds of tobacco can be made by saving the last crop, moat of it good tobacco. If necessary, employ some one accustomed to work in tobacco to help save the crop. Then em ploy some one who can make carrotes and cigars to teach all four of tbe employes to work up tho crop in good shape. All can then become cigar makors and carrote makers. Those eight acres ordiuarily may be worked up and sold for five thousand dollars. The party might divide out $1000 apiece for their year's work. In July, Au gust and September they would havo but iit'tle or nothing to do with tho crop. The tobacco or<>p is harvested early in July. I!y all means, let us diversify otir labor, and become a self-supporting, self-sus taining !>eople. We may not make as much of the great staples as formerly, but they will bring larger prices, which will be a sufficient remuneration; aud if they should happen to be cut short by some ac cident or other, to which they are pecu liarly liable, the other crops will support our farms and people, and enable them to live independently. It appears to us that this course "is dictated alise by sound policy and genuine wisdom. £SF The Imperial Mexican Railway has been opened lrom Vera Cruz to the Pass of Macho. A special train isdispatched from Vera Cruz on each arrival of a steam pack et from Europe. It is to be continued to the city of Mexico, three hundred miles in all. The following are the Government stipulations with tho company: 1. Tho exclusive privelege in perpetuity of the main iiue from Vera Crn~ to Mexico, with a branch to Peubla. 2. The exclusive right of constructing any branch lines desired within sixty miles from the main line. 3. A State subvention of $6,000,000 in bonds charged on an additional 20 per cent, over and above the ordinaiy customs dues of the ports, which has been legally ap propriated. 4. State subscription for shares to the amount of 15 per cent, of the ordinary cus toms receipt» for five years estimated to produce £800,000 secured on the said cus tom dues. 5. Immunity from all rates and laxes during fifty years. «. Importation free of duty of all mate rial. machinery and coals, both for the construction of the railway and for its use for thirty years. 7. Exportation duty free, of specie to the same amount of value. 8. Free grant of all Government lands, required for the line, and of ail mineral properties discovered in the construction. 9. Tho privilege accorded to the compa ny to fix its own tariffs on charges and rates, both for goods and passengers, with out any limitation. The remainder of the works, it should be added , are being conducted under the su perintendence of Mr, James Samuel, of Great George street, London and Mr. Tal cott, of the United States, the latter re maining in Mexico to personally superin tend the details. ' More About tub National Debt .—The Washington correspondent of the Cincin- ! nati Gazette , writing on the 4th inst., says : In addition to the synopsis of the monthly statement of the public debt, given on Saturday night, the following facts will still further serve to illustrate the exceedingly favorable condition of the national finances. The increase of the net debt for the months of Juno aud July, as shown in the last statement, was in round numbers one hundred aud twonty-two millions, or an average of two millions per dsy, but for tho month of August the whole increase of our indebtedness has been only four hundred and thirty-six thousand dollars, or an average of fourteen thonsaud dollars per day. In other words, a mouth ago wc wor# running in debt at the rate of two millions a day, and now at I the rate of only one sixth of a million per day. It if likewise noteworthy that while the délit has been increased during tha last month a little less than half n million, | the interest on the debt now outstanding has been diminished a milliou and a quar- j ter. This result has been accomplished by , the redemption in legal tenders of over | twenty-one and a halt millions of six per i cent, ccrtificateg of indebtedness. ES^'idy dear sir, you have used half of our case of Champagne." "Oh, yes; you are my friend and I always Uke your part.'» Toast« to the Press .—The Cincinnati Otmmercial has the following sensible and judicious remarks : It may us well bo said that the custom of "toasting the press," and calling out some of" its represontativos present to re spond, is a nuisance—a bore of the largest calibre. Not one professional journalist in a hundred is "gifted with gab." His process of thoughts are entirely different from those of the orator or off-hand speaker. He is accustomed to select words with a view to express in the least space the greatest number of ideas, and thiB be comes a mental habit from which ho can not easily free himself. It is fatal to off hand speaking. Ask him to write a speech, «nd lie would have no difficulty, lie would succeed where the "natural orator" would bo likely to fail. Wnat we mean to say is, that the custom of "toast ing tho press," and it is usual to postpone it till half the guests are surcharged with oratory and the other half with cham pagne, is one of tho civilities which the journalist, while he-knows it is well meant, leols to be a bore. If free tickets are to be thrust upon the press, to all sorts of gath erings, let the attentions to its representa tives be confined to a favorable position at the table, with all tho facilitios that can be furnished him for reporting the proceed ings, and no more. Better than this it would be to permit him to purchase his own pasteboard, like other people, and re port or not, as he prefers. There would be loss names in print, and less windy ora tory published, and the world would be the better for it. Strange Performance .—At New York, lately, William Sheffield accomplished the following strange succession of feats in less than half an hour: He walked half a mile, trundled a wheel half a mile, walked backwards half a mile, picked up twenty stones, one yard apart, and brought each back to the starting point; ran half a mile, hopped forty yards, leaped ten hurdles, picked up fifteen eggs, separately, with his mouth, and throw four fifty pound weights. lie went through the performance with tho greatest ease, and accomplished it in 69 minutes and 52 seconds.
