When wo speak of the ‘encourage ment’ we should have from tb< people, we of course mean that thi people should subscribe to our pa per and give give it their advertis : ing patronage; but we do not intern to imply by this that this patronagi is u donation. We have a circula 1 tion folly as largo in proportion t< j our population as the great dailiei have in proportion to tho populatioi they serve, but the population hert is comparativoy small and wo musi have patronage ol this sort in even larger proportion before wo can m jmpei <vo IIJV poupiu desire. They must not expect with a patronage one-sixtb as large as that received by the Memphis pa pers, we shall be able to publish a paper as good as the Memphis pa pers nor yet one half as good. If wo are to obey the people’s wishes I in this regard we must have readers and these readers must subscribe and pay for the paper- The stream is no higher than its source. Tho newspaper is no better than the peo. pie of the community make it. We can assure our readers that we ex pend in making this paper very nearly every dollar we take in. That is the fairest evidence of our desire to give this public a good paper. In the matter of advertisements there is some fault to find with the people also. We do not want any one to place an advertisement in this paper as a favor to us. We claim that we have a good bona fide circulation hero in luka the sur rounding country and that our col umns are alter.i!v< .y read, not onlv by subscribers < most attentively by borrowers ar 1 faultfinders- We believe that any advertisement, placed in a paper of this character, is worth to the advertiser what we charge for the space it occupies; we give full return for the investment made with us and therefore honors are oven;thorois no favor shown on either side; but there is this to say in a general way about advertis ing. A paper woll-filled with local advertisements is the best sign of a town’s progress venous. Show us i,|o j wticto iuo mercnaniH uo not advertise, and we will show you I a city where inerebants think they have got all the trade they are able to1 get—that city is not progressive. The city ot hustlers is the city of advertisers; and there is no use ory ifig out against the newspaper and accusing it of lack of enterprise. The fault lies at the door of the peo ple. We^have many good and true friends, who appreciate,what wo ure d°lnSiAUo.there^are.a number of good advertisers "here—men who do nos, let grass, grow..under their foot. These men let the public know they are alive; but ther are others who ure not ot this sort. They .ought to move away.^ They are loo selfishi too seifseeking to bo anything but a hindrance to a town tbatgueeds pub lic spirited citiaeus.^.What we need and what we must have is generous, united patriotic action to put luku ready to buist with uncontrollable energy. The paper is ready to burst the samo^way.^We have had in cipient expiosious ^tiino and aguin for years, and ive would like to have » grout big one; but we cannot ex plods with enthusiasm while we ure icrainbliug around digging for pen i«es and meeting with discourage ment from those who should bo the irst to give our efforts earnest and leurty support. Wo ought nut to be forced to say his, and yet it is Hue. Let us have j I change. We contend that wc arc ' --Y— right up in tho front rank AH, dcs claro tin » our advantages are su perior in character and as a people we are just so ulive that wt am doing our shuro in building up luku und that the people also have a share to do. We do not think tha all tho blowing should bo at our cost and we are fixed in our opinion that no ono can rightly ask us to do more until we receive moro encour agement. We do not intend to slacken .'our efforts, but if any one desires that this paper shall push forward more rapidly than it is now doing, that one must put a shoulder to the wheel and help shove a little himself. Every shove in this direc tiori will help luka. The above is a reproduction from Mobile Register rearranged and made applicable to luka.—Ed. COiiSUMjmoN CURED.

Tho sub treasury has fizzled out, however we occasionally hear the plaintiff Wail bordering on despair from a run-a-tnuek sub treasury crank. Several different attempts have been made to get the people to meet in the interest ot^this measure and to have the champions of this wild goose scheme to orate upon its beauties, its manifold benefits and to tell them that this bill will bo the cornucopia of their expectations. The trouble about these meetings are that they fail to materialize. Ope or two of these non«compos*mentus fellows meet and like the lone prairie coyote, howl themselves hoarse The Democratic dog still wags the sub troasury alliance tuil us evidence of this statement, J. Z. George has ninety pledged votes for U. S. Sen ate, and Barksdale fifty. It is the height of folly to ask the farmers'to pay two per,,cent on their own ^ money and to be taxed to build ware i houses. Did it ever occur to the I minds of these would be Solomons j and Moses what it wouid cost to build the ware houses? It would cost,fifty thousand dollars to build a sub treasury ware bouse in each county, to bouso^.its products. One sharp Ellic hallows out that to build the ware houses would’give employ raent to the mechanics. Then we ask how long would wo, farmers bavo any property to bo taxed to give employment to the mechanios? Tho people should remember, that supply and^demand^regulate prices. Eight millions and a half bales of cotton produced last year brought the price of cotton to 7 1-2 cents— halt of that'amount, raised in Iwn successive years would raise the price to ten cents. The price of cot ton goods is cheap which is prima iaciu evidenco that it is over produc tion which has lowered prices. Take the tariff off and we couM buy them fifty per cent choaper. Give u» fair and free trade and we can live inde pendent of any people. The gin house o! Esq Trios. Mi lican was burned with six or seven balos^of cotton. It is supposed ilw origin of the fine was Iroin matches being in the seed cotton and struck fire from tho gin saws. Mr. John I'ugett’s gin with the same number of bales ,of cotton was burned last week. Some say matches was the cause and others maintain that the brush tiihiidroleal the gudgeons were not kept lubricated and the fire caught from friction. The corn and cotton is turning out better than the sooth sayers predic ted a month since ibis date. And large quantities with superior qual ity of sorgbam is being made, hut wo are left on turnips, potatoes and the root crop generally. Probably the sub treasury cranks can fix up a ! remedy for the lust mentioned ca- ] lamity of tho root crop. The sub treasury fellows being a party of 1 calamities, battened and .atoned o,, n lam t ties, but run a muck for g o i 1 <f office.
