We Kaa&d out orer a hundred extra papers l' dtia week in order to reaeh many of delinquent subscribers. After c Ibis week wo intend to come down to I those who have paid up. Wo don’t nppose any one ia trying to starve us ' nut, but as we have ofUiu said, wu are compelled to pay for our work be- ^ fore wo get it. Wc can’t stand send ing papers to so many delinquents and will not. try, for fear wc might become unable to send to any. Wc must un load. Bad pay docs not suit these '• hard times. Please pay up what you ■ wwc. The many small bills amount to ma|li, and in order to do justice by >'Ao8c who have paid, wc must cut ' loose and make out bills and stop the paper. Wo hope no one will become offend ed nt this snd DO resBonablc person will, for they should not expect us to take money from onr pocket, week af ter week and send papers to hundreds, many of whom wc wilt never get a oent from. After this week we cut regardless of persons snd eircum- stBuces. If yon like to read the pa per, help support. ccss in spite of the failure of the Slate to niskc the necestary appropriation. It will do honor to every tueoher of the State, and reflect great mdit on the Negro. ■ A iinniber of persons have organ* iard a club to go to Washington to ailenil the drill Mr. P.

The health of the town seems good, the schools are full and '■Jirospcrous, the churches are having ravivsts, the farms gardens are look ing well, everybody scorned well dressed with n plenty to cat, then why ■houldn't all be happy ?

It seems to us that i Urge majority of the colored pcopb here live on their own homes and tbai speaks well for them. They carry no mercantile business.
