Now, while 'J wo ncre in Alabama can make double ( the amount of corn per acre (cotton * being on an average about the same) it f must be understood that the lands are much rougher and requires double the amount of labor to produce such crops, j Another drawback is the scarcity of farm j [* labor, wages being higher, caused from t ho many public works and there Beemn ^ * to be a disposition amongst the colored t n race to work for them io preference to ^ " the fann, and yet they do not make a t n cent move than those on the farm; so I n u n repeat again, to let well enough alone, n and stay in your native State. I came here j jj to bo satisfied regardless of circumstau- ^ i> ces. and can tell the truth wlmn I ? "J t n my circumstances to-day are far ahead t t of many who caine here about the same v " time*. It is due alone to my energy and Q " enterprise. 1 could name several to-day ? who have been in this State for throe ^ 11 years and working at good wages who c H would gladly return if they only had the j means, and whenever you hear of high c n wages and raking up thu precious ? 11 shining dollars, you may rest assured that there is a good deal of expense at" taclied to the raking up. I am glad to j _ acknowledge Alabama as one of the j richest Southern States, so far as miner2 als are concerned, and sonic as Pine farm- ,| B ing lands as you will timl anywhere, but j I then there is a large area that is moun tanr cons and ofbut little valuo except for the * timbers. Those line farming lands are | too high for a poor man to think of buy- t| r ing and the mountain lands too rough to ^ t cultivate. So far as society is concerned j " it is good enough.

If 'it is your wish, 1 may write you again on the subject of minerals and how they are worked, &c. jj I wish to say a few words to my old army comrades, and then 1 will desist, ^ for fear thin may find a resting place in lf the waste-basket oil account of its rj length. g( ATTENTION !

Wlial Constlutes Manliness? The answer would bo somethfpgin tin lature of Benjamin Franklin's distinc ion between orthodoxy and heterodoxy 'Orthodoxy is my doxy; heterodoxy i itlier people's doxy." We have been led to this reflection hi eading the following item concernin; he vote on the Blair bill in tije Wnsh ngton corespondence of tho Aftws ant Courier: "Representative Aiken, who is chair nan of the educational committee havinj he bill in charge, sat silently In his sea ,r.d never raised his voice except to vot( vith those opposed to the passage of th< till. His immediate neighbors, Messrs Tillman and Pargan, voted with him )n the other hand, Messrs. Dibble lemphill, Brntlon and Smalls stood u] nanfnlly and cast their votes with tlu riends of cducatton." We are nt a loss to infer afly reasor rhy there is any more evidence of man inoss in the action of Messrs. Dibble Iomphill, Iiratton and Smalls than it hat of Messrs. Aiken, Tillmnn and Dar ;an. We have never heard any one o hese three Congressmen charged witl >eing[ wanting in manliness. Probably he explanation lies in the fact that th< Vans atui Courier and its correspond nt agree with the position taken bj lessrs. Dibble, Hemphill, Bratton ant vmalls. They voted "manfully" because 1 > - im.-j iuivu ?? iiiu curresponueni mougn hey ought to have voted, and as h< rould have voted had he been a meiubei f Congress. But we submit that thii ? not a fair lest of manliness. If Messrs Liken, Tillman and Dargan voted in ae ordance with their cunvictiotts of theii luty, and there is no evidoncc to tlu ontrary, then they also voted "man ully." It would have boon very unjanly in them to vote otherwise. Moreover, Messrs. Aiken, Tillman ant] )argan arc excluded by the correapondnt from the list of Congressmen whi re "the friends of education." Wc hink there iR no good reason and nc usticc in this. On the contrary, thej re all friends of education^ihough the) re not the friends of this bill. They, 0 doubt, believe, as many others do tiat the passage of the Blair bill, while iving temporary aid and relief, would 1 the end cripple the educational proress of the States. Besides tlint, thej elieve, as many good and intelligent ten do, that the bill is unconstitutional f so. they could not vote for it without eing guilty of gross inconsistency. We do not wish to say anything disourtcous shout the correspondent; bul re cannot refrain froin saying, that any itempt to "bulldoze" honorable and italligont men into one's own ideas it ot only wrong, but is extremely vulgar rot only so, but in this case, at least, il i perfectly futile, for Messrs. Aiken, 'illman and Dargan are not of tli? tamp of Congressmen who trim theii ailfi to suit newspaper criticism. Our definition of manliness would be, strict adherence to what one believes > bo right, without regard to the &proval or disapproval of others, coupled ith a due respect for others' opinions, A Card.

T1IK LOVK-CHA8E OF JKPP DAVIS t AM) ITS UESUIjTS. e A WanIof ItiHhoi)Inicland the Object of HI* Affect Ions?'The Hall and the Projected Duel?Stopped in the Nick or Time. Recent pyrotechnic displays on the 5 floor of the Nation's Senate as to whether * Jefferson Davis was a patriot or a traitor : a score of years or so ago have again ats tracted attention to the man whom Sam Ward once jocularly styled utho great f American myth." But even if it he trfie I that Mr. Davis, according to Willlh m " Tecumseh Sherman, was a double-dis' tilled traitor originally to the causo he afterwards championed, there is yet lit" tie doubt that more than one romantic [ chapter haR appeared in the hard-shell , Southerner's career. And of this I bo* came more than convinced aftci hearing a bit of entertaining gossip about his eailv days. J When .TelF Davis, in his twenties j during his Western service had obtained his. commission in the First Dragoons ? he was given a furlough. After a brief - visit to the Capital and as brief a sojourn ; among his Kentucky relatives, the young ? officer drove post haste to luxurious Charleston, where all the wealth and f hoant3* of the Southern planter's world i were concentrated. Of course there r ? u.-? nu aiirncuun io ine w est l'ojnter at J Charleston. This attraction was a bright eyed beauty, a Miss Colby, whose repur tation as a belle is famous in South 1 Carolinian annals. ? Col. Charles Colby, a wealthy Ashley t Kiver planter, dying in 1820 or 1821, had 5 left his only daughter, staunch Kpiscor palian though he was, to the guardiani ship of Dr. John Kngland, first Catholic . UisJiop or Charleston. Just how Lieut. - Davis became acquainted with the plantr er's heiress I havo not learned. But i two nightft after his arrival in Charles ton an invitation was handed the officer to attend a ball in the Tamous Town Hall. Davis' card had been sent up to I Dr. England's episcopal residence almost before he bad shaken the dust of travel > from his shoes, with, of course, a billet ^ addressed to Miss Colby. The hours must have dragged wearily along on the ' day preceding the great ball. The city ' was all agog with. the. excitement, and , the planters' coaches rolling over the , stones in rumbling haste, were within s sight of the anxious young officer watchl iug from an upper story window of a strange hostelry. r Unaccompanied, the youth made his t way into the ballroom, and leaning . against a pillar, eagerly scanned each t new arrival's face. The soldierly bearing of the ex-cadet, the fine ey<}$, light ing up a manly, scholarly face, possibly t wot) admiring comments from the lips ' of Charleston's haughty dames and I damsels. He was observed to change i his listless attitude and suddenly start . toward the ballroom doorway, through t which Miss Colby, all at her loveliest, , was entering on the arm of a dark, imt perious looking gentleman in the full * evening dress of the period. Undeterred by tho sight of her escort, a Louisiauian , of proud Creolo family, Davis was soon i at the beauty's sule, who smiled her welcome as she oxtended her hand. 1 While basking in the light of the fair , one's eyes, the youth, fresh from the rude servicc of the frontior, shook off his bashfulness And all melancholy faded from his countenance, when he was given the blissful privilege of escorti ing his partner to the banquet room, ' regardless of th? claims of her escort, . his cup of pleasure ran brimming over. ; An exact account of what suhso i quently occurred l?a^ come to no man's I ears. But this much, at least, I believe is true : The stern looking cavalier who had beon Miss Colby's original at; tendant had watched with blazing eyes i the assiduous attentions of the Keni tuckian and hnd entered tho supperroom close upon his heels. The sitting at the table, according to the custom of that old-fashioned time, was prolonged. Champagne was quaffed in cordial South* em way, and a certain ill-suppressed ex. citement seemed to pervade the atmosi phore in the neighborhood of Davis aud i the beautiful Colby. As the lady rose from the table the lieutenant leaned for* i ward to remove her chair. Hardly had his hand touched the back of tho seat i when tho Creole sprang toward him and , tore the grasp away. It was but a second's work for Davis to thrust himnAlf U.4 *-!- * ? sen uaiwei'ii iiih issiiiani ana miss Colby, who, pale-eyed and trembling, Hhrank back affrighted to tho door.

Just as the sun was glinting tho bay beyond the forts a party of five gentlemen stepped out from the palmetto shadows. A brief consultation was held, the principals separated, and the seconds, after loading two murderous duelling pistols, slowly began to make the fatal paces. Rut the galloping .sound of a horse was heard upon tho hard white road. A horseman, thickly enveloped in a heavy cloak, leaped to the ground.

Thomas C, Field, well known in connection with the Tweed fraud in New York city, died Sunday near ttt. Andrews, Province of Quebce, where he had been living in exile since 1872. He was a lawyer by profession and a man of ability, and under the Tweed regime Gllftd the positions of public administrator, park commissioner, corporation attorney, "State ftenator and'Assemblyman. fl*t.

Field himself received 188,000. For this ho was indicted, hut he jumped his bni 1 and became a refugee. WhenJticld went to Canada he was reportfi<Wo bo worth a million dollars, and he liv^d in princely style. Hut by speculation he lost much of his ill gotten gains, and recently he had lived a retired life, raising vegetables and cuttle. Referring to the death oi r ioiu, uie .New lork World says: "The fate of tho man who robbed the city so shamefully is full of significance and warning. Tweed died in prison. Connoly lived and died miserably in a foreign country to which he could never , become reconciled. Field now dies in Canada, an exile from his native land, to , which ho could nevor return, but for which he always yearned. Of what real value to these men were the millions of which they Jobbed the city ?*' Emory Spoor's lie cord. Jas. C. Jenkins, who was assistant United States district attornorney under Emory Spoor, of Georgia, has made oath that Speer smuggled an indictment against Jasper >'arborough and others through tho grand jury room, after having made an unsuccessful effort to induce Jenkins to do it. Yarborough and others were indicted for whipping and beating negroes. Evidence that the crime was committed because of the politics of the persons ossaultod, which was required to bring the cose within the jurisdiction of the United States Court, wan lacking in the testimony 1 sent up by the United States comtnis- 1 sioner. To remedy this deficiency 1 Specr "smuggled" the papers past the 1 grand jury, obtaining the foreman's signature without reading the papers, and got tho case into the court There the ' negro witnesses swore to anything that 1 was required of them and the accused persons were sent to Albany for whipping rotors because of their devotion to 8peer when he ran for Congress, and ' one of them has died there. Jenkins ' says 8peer suborned the perjuries, and furthermore swears that in the case of | P. F. Lawshe, of Gainesville, indicted for robbing the post office, Speer wilfully failed to summon the two most im- ( portant witnesses for the government, ( although urged to bring them before the ( grand jury, because Lnwsho was a po- ] litical friend of his.

Tho discussion in the senato of Genoral Hawley's resolution of inquiry relating to Gen. Sherman and the Jefl" Davis matter, caIIk attention anew to a subject of interest to a good many people, the ex-Confederates in congress. It is an interesting fact, and one not generally recognized, perhaps, that nearly or quite all of the senators from the States of the Confederacy were motnbers of tho Confederate array or congress, and that more than ono half of the members of the House from those States were also in that service. It is a fact, too, not generally recognized that one-third of the Senate is made up of ex-Confederates, while the House has in it twice as many of that class as has the Senate. The total number of ex-Confoderates in congress is between seventyfive and one hundred. Of these the majority were officers in the army, though there are a half dozen who were in the congress of the Confederacy, and ono or two who were in tho cabinet. Kenna, of West Virginia, seems to bo the only one of the entiro list of twontyfive ex-Confederates in the Senato who served as ft private soldier thoughout his connection with ihc army. He entered tho service as a mere boy, being, indeed, about eighteen years of age at its close. Ho volunteered when about sixteen, was severely wounded at tho age of seventeen, and was surrendorud at Shreveport at tho ago of about eighteen. It is asingular fact that while almost every Senator from tho States forming tho Confederacy was in the active service of tho Confederate govArntnsnf nnln 11 ..uiuj a vuiiijjaiuinuijf siiiaii number of the Sonators from the northern States arc ex-Union soldiers. Thoro are but thirteen ex-Union soldiers in the Senate?llawley, Mitchell, Miller, of New York, Miller, of California, Htair, Van VVyck, Manderson, Ingalls, I'lumb, Harrison and Logan. Wade Hampton was a Confederate, and is a popular senator. People who go in the gallaries ask "which is Wade Hampton?" nd on being told, they usually settle themselves for a good look at him. Us walks about the Senate chamber quite comfortably upon his wooden leg which takes the place of the one he lost a few years ago. He iu quite a favorite with the ladies. Pretty Mile. Rhea apostrophized him htmr -recently m uZa sweetost man in all ze world" This roally "broke up" a lot of the youngor element who were trying to creato an impression, and they are ready to wreak their vengeance upon Hampton in aU most an}' manner. Hampton was in both branches of the State legislature boforo the war, and was one of the wealthiest men of tho South, owning a thousand slaves, if reports ai\e true. He entered the Confederate service at the beginning of the war, serving with distinction to its close, saving both legs in the army only to looso ono in a hunting accident a decade or more afterwards. It is a rather singular fact that South Carolina's two Senators have but one pair of legs between them. Senator Butler lost a leg in the Confederate service. Ho entered as a captain of cavalry, and was promoted through the regular grades until he reached the rank of major Gen eral, when he lost his leg at the battle of Brandy Station.?Baltimore American. A Cutting and ShootlnjfS crape. Sunday afternoon while several colorod men wero enjoying a social game of seven up on Mr. Thos. F. Harmon's Springfield placo a difficulty arose between Circuit Williams and Andrew ltee.se. Circuit roach -nl for Andrtw with a long-blade pocket knife and out a gash about ten inches long from hia right oar to a point under his chin. Circuit then turned and fled. As he passed over the brow of tho hill, Andrew sent a couple of pistol balls after him in quick succession. One ball entered the shoulder and was cut out by Dr. Oilder; the other entered the middle of the back, and ranging upward either entered tho cavity or buried itself under the shoulder blade. Both negroes were badly hurt. Circuit's wound in the back may prove serious. Neither party soems inclined to prosecute the other, and there has boen no warrant IimumI.-. /VawhAirti Some ono has strikingly said that as all noises made in the cathedral at Pisa?-the slamming of seats, the tramping of feet, the speoeh and bustlo of the crowd?aro caught up; softened, harmonised, bloniled and echoed back from the dome In music* so there is no affliction, no griof, 110 loss, however hard to bear, 'but, under the over-arching dome of proviiential wisdom, power and mercy.^roturns at last in inelody.
