Boston’s newest labor publicaticn,
The Pertuader, says: “What we do
propose to accomplish is, to place be
fore our readers each week practical
lessons on tbe Labor question from re
liable tesebers, that they niiy digest
snd consider them and by so doing
educate tbomselves to a fltvrough con-
eeption of the movement they arc en
gaged in, for the abolition of tbo pre-
Mnt infernal system of industrial
slavery, and prepare the way for the
introduction of the new system of in-
telligcnt and equitable co-operation.”
An cxchaogc says : “Tbe postal
makes it Uroeny to taka a newspaper
aod refuse to pay for it." A newspa
per in Illinois recently brought suit
against forty three men who would not
pay their anbacriptioni, and obtained
judgment in each for the full amount
of too claim. Of these, twenty-eight
men made affidavit that they owned no
more property than the law allowed
thorn, tbos preventing attachments.
Then they under the decision of the
Supreme Court were arrested for petty
laroeny and oil boand over in the sum
of ^00. All but six cave bonds,
while fix went to jail.
A Methodist minister while going
out to one of bis appointments, met an

divine, “tbo people have taken them
all to moke magistrates of.”
