We offuer tbe paper at these unusually
low rates with the view of bringing it
within the teach of all daring the cam

A very trifling effort on the part of some
of our friends in'eaoh township or

dition to our already large subscription
list, and be the means of doing a great
lust of pood. The tending campaign is a
most important one th question of
giving the negro the right to vote, noid
office, pit on juries, and marry into whita
families is to be decided and every
Democrat should exert himself to seoure

Let our able Democrats throughout "the

five dollars or more in eaoh township,

Godit for August is reoeied,

surprise an article in the Zaleski Zcho,
of Juno 27, wherein you are cha-ged
with beinc; the author of my coranu-
nication published in your papV of
Juno 20. Zaleski wishes to havetho
County Seat' removed here, andmy
obiect. in tnv communication.'wii to
call the attention of the public tothe
quantity ot bad whisky drank uro,
it. B. Eobson, tho first Agent or Jin-
aercr for the Zaleski Co., sold lots vith
the restriction' that whisky shouldnot
be sold on the lot by tlve purchase
the lot : and the idea has gone abvmd
that Zaleski is a temperate place. Che
Zaleski Echo is tho organ of the pw
ers that be in Zaleski, and I submt
the publio whether it is right for tlose
who control its columns to publiih
" Business Directory " of the busiiess
ot the town, and mako tho most ihey
can ot all the business corned on here,
and omit the liquor selling altogether,
Undor tho heading of " Grocers tnd
Bakers, " tho ' papor publishes
names of three business houses. Tor
aught I know thoso who keep them
may bo bakers by trado,;but they Are
not at' the present time engagecj
baking bread, nor do I think they have
been at any time since the Echo has
been published. Under thd headine:
of "Licmors. &c." there are also tmb-
lished the names of four moro business
hpusos. I .'do not : wish to excite
-parrel and havo the editor of a pub
lic print abused dii ihj account, but
ask the powors that be in Zaleski
have published in thoir organ tho
names of all those who sell whisky
here under its proper name, or else
omit tho " Business Dircctorv " alto
gether. Let tho English who want
tho Americans to vote to remove
County ' Seat here, so thev may
their lots and grow rich, tell tho truth.
Some men would vote for Zaloski soon
er for having whisky sold here. .

A Point Well Made.

" " But you know how that is, neigh

principled, selfish ' people in every
neighborhood, who have' no regard
for the public good, or the injury they
do to" others, provided they can indulge
their whims. '
- "Well, Murphy, suchi people deserve
to be treated like sheep-killing dogs."
At this point the conversation turn
