The mild,open weather of the past week
has been very favorable for wheat sowing,
and good progress has been niade to
wards overtaking arrears. The wet clays
arejuow workable, and on drier soils the
hind tarns up well. Tho young . wheats

latejr sowiugs are coming through the
ground with an" abundance of plant. So

EnsBand and on the Xontiuent . of Eu-
mpja ; bat there isjin area not yet seed
cd,j thpdiiueusions of which are not
yets ascertained, which must lorm an
imimrtant feature in all estimates of the
valne of present daca in connection with
prospects for the harvest. There is now
no nest ion whatever as to the fact of
the, 'world's surplus of marketable bread
stufis being more than equal to the con
sumptive requirements of England for the
year 183'.' -'81, and the only thing that
keeps juices at their present level Isille
paucity of supplies on the spot at the im
ttieiata present. The United State$ has
ii surplus of wheats, which has recently
been officially estimated as being about
4,0(10,000 qrs. in excess of last year! and
stocks in sight jare now increasingj to a
marked extent loth a the Atlantic and
Pacific seaboards. Up to the commence
ment of the past Week I hear that specu

From the Cliarlotte Obseiver.
Will you allow mcjyiace to siy a word
ou this question, which is creating such a
stir at this time. I am ouly interested
directly in the matter as a tax-payer, and
I think I have formed my opinion impar
tially ; and if your premises are correct
(and I presume they are), your conclu
sions cauuot be far wrong. If I uuder-i
stand the position, it is this: Tho State's;
frtock of $3,000,000 is mortgaged for the!
redemption of $2,000,000 of bonds, withj
some $000,000 accrued interest. These!
Inuids are "now, or soon will be, due and
the holders of these bonds propose to ex-j
change them for new bonds, bearing thq
same interest as the old ones, and ruu
niug 40 years throw ing away the $G00,-j
000 of interest which has accrued. This
is tiie position as.I understand it.
Now, you are in favor of accepting tins'
proposition (iTUo better-can be obtained)
aud so am I, rather than for the State to
surrender her stock for tho bonds ; and
for this reason :
As long as the lease of the North Caro
lina to tho Richmond and Danville roajl
lasts (some 17 or IS years, I believe,) thb
State will get $24,000 aLimally, iu excesk
of what she pays out to tlie bondholders!,
ajfid it is quite safe to calculate that the
lease can be continued, until the bonds
fall due, on the same or better terms.
Supposing this supposition to be cor
rect, let us see how mutters will stand at
the expiration of 40 years. If the Statu
can fund this $24,000, as it is paid into thie
treasury, iu bonds bearing 0 per ccut. in
terest, it will, in 40 years, amount to th'e
the neat little sum of $3,714,300, or $1,
114,300 more than the bonds 'she will be
called upon to redeem at that time. But
supposing she eau only fund at 4 percent,
the amount then would be $2,700,204, or
$190,204 more than the bonds, aud lea
ina her still with her $3,000,000 of stock
free. ' ' , ' - j
Taking this view of the question I a in
for accepting the proposition tf the bond
holders, provided no better terms can lie
obtained from them. It looks supremely
ridiculous to me to hear people talkinjg
about placing these const ruction bonds
on the same footing as other bonds of the
State. That might do if then was ho
mortgage iu the way.

Wejrad in the Old rTestaraent that
"Absalom n his lifetime had taken
and reared up for hibiself a pillar
which is iu the king's dale." This,
with the exception of Absalom's tomb
which is still pointed out in the Val
ley of Jehoshaphat, is supposed to be
the only monument evjer erected to
perpetuate the raemorv of that self
conceited, effeminate aud spoiled son
oj David. There is another pillar
which Absalom reared with his own
hands, and which still stands just as
he left it, "to keep his name in remem
brance." His entire life was spent in
building it, having commenced it in
childhood, and completed it only at
death. Gradually it (was built up,
and it will remain to the end of all
time: for pillars 'built iof such lasting
materials never crumble: in decay. Of
course, you cannot exprct to see tins
wonderful pillar; tneielore I shall
endeavor to describe it to your imagi
nation, that you may learn profitable
lessons from it.
Fancy a tall obelisk,: or four-sided
pillar, like those, to be seen in any cem
etery, only much larger; and made all
of one piece, standing upon a broad
pedestal called its base! Then, as in
all monuments, there tnust be letters
cut deep in the stone on each side.
The first which we will look at dis
plays the figure of a tall and most
handsome man, with long bushy hair
falling over his shoulders in great
abundance. It is anointed with oil
and powdered with grid dust, - which
give it additional charms according to
the tastes and customs of the age. Un
derneath yon can fancy vou see the
following words cut deep in the hard
stone, and red., as if they had just
been painted with blood

vid, the King of Ibrael. He was in

ly admired by his father's subjects,
but was revengeful and treacherous.
He invited his frtcnd$ to a great fta?t,
and when all were drunk with wine,

appointed for the evil deed, to slay
his brother, tlie special object of his
The next side rep -escnts the same
tall figure standing i t the gate of a
great city, surrounded ; with chariots
and horses and a company of fifty
men to serve him. Then beneath are
words like these :
"Absalom, the .deceitful, treacher
ous betrayer of his fall her, full of cun
ning and stratagem, who stood by the
gale, and when any ijiait came near to

A the top of the fourth side ap

same tall figure, riding upon a mule,
aijd pressing hard after a small band
of- mjen, who followed an old man as
h fled from the city of Jerusalem,
'arefoot" and weeping, and all his
fo! Io wers weeping. Underneatiryoa
can fancy you see these words ;
"Absalom's army fought against his
lather's loyal followers by the woods
of Ephraim, but the Lord, the God f
David, fought against Absalom, and
his army was defeated and broken up,
twenty 'thousand men were slain, and
the wood devoured more people than
the sword, and Absalom himself fled,
riding upon a mule: for he saw that
the battle was sore' against him, and
the Lord had caused his sin to find
Next appears the same tall figure
hanging in the branches of an oak by
the hair of his head, of which he had
been so vain, with a crowd of men
around him, and one of them in the
act of stabbing him to ihe heart with
a dart which he holds in his hand,
with these words following:
"Let us not fight against God."
On the base of the pillar you may
see the appearance of a great heap of
stones, and the words :
- "They took Absalom and cast him
into a great pit in the wood, and laid
livery great heap of stones upon him."
Such is a view of the pillar of Ab
salom's character which he built up by
his wicked acts in life, without a sin
gle word of good to be said about him,
except that he was a very handsome
man, with luxuriant and bushv hair.
And God has left his character stand
ing asa monument tothe world, that
young and old may remember that
tlie violation of God's commandments
will certainly bring punishment, and
especially that. lie who dishonors his
parents cannot expect to escape the
awful consequences of his crime, but
may come to a premature death, and
shall certainly lie in a dishonored
gtave. On the other hand, if a char
acter of good deeds is built up, it will
last through ages o the honor of him
who reared it. God's Word tells us
that "the righteous shall be in ever
lasting rememberance, but the name
of the wicked shall rot."
