4-H FOR THE PURPOSE OF REDUCING
Hon. T. L. Clinoman has sketch
ed one of the greatest, if not the great
est danger which menaces the civil
liberties of the people of this country.
If the Democrats in the House are
half as eager to preserve our liberties
as are the masses, they will take up
Gen. Clingman's. suggestion and put
it through their House, at least, and
throw the responsibility of its net be
coming a law on the Republican Ben
ate and the Republican President.
Official interference in elections by
money and corrupting agencies is an
alarming and dangerous practice and
should be stopped. Every school
master and public teacher should de
nounce it and endeavor to inculcate

the following from the Raleigh News-
Gen. Clingmau has addressed an
open letter to Congress in which he
directs public attention to one of the
great abuses of the age. He adverts
to the growing tendency of Federal
officials to interfere with elections and
he declares that tile evil instead of
being checked is daily developing it
self in a more aggravating form. This
tendency of the meu in power to per
petuate their regime, to exclude oth
ers from participation in the patron
age of office and to control the vast
influence which 100,000 officials ex
ert for the purpose of maintaining the
administration, is one of the dangers
that threaten to subvert the liberties
of the people. When the administra
tion is no longer the agency of the
people, but becomes the ruler, perpet
uating itself indefinitely by means of
its patronage, then indeed, although
the forms of free government may
survive, the spirit will be dead and
oligarchy will be entkroned over the
Gen. blingman well says that
"within a few years past the interfer
ence of officers iu elections and their
contributions of money have become
so general that it is conceded that
even the election of a President has
been decided by these means, and in
telligent gentlemen have expressed the
opinion that hereafter none but rich
men should be nominated by presi
dential conventions. In fact we seem
to be rapidly approaching a condition
like thart of Koine in the days when

ministration ought to stand before the
country on its own merits, and that
officials should confine their efforts to

The Newt & Observer greatly desiring
to see tobacco culture extended presents
with the following for your consideration.
B. H. WoodeU, Esq:
Dear Sir : I concur with you in the
propriety of North Carolina planters mak
ing less cotton and snbetitating tobacco
foe a part of their usual cotton crop. The
world is fall of cotton, and the improve
ment made in the East India staple makes
the'product of toe country a strong com
petitor against American cotton in the
markets abroad, where the price for onr
product ia regulated j while, as regards
tobacco, stocks everywhere here and
abroad are low and decreasing, while
consumption is constantly increasing.
Tobacco is high and will continued high
till the production meets the demand for
consumption, while cotton is low and
will continue low as long as more is pro
duced than tbe world can consume. It
will take two full consecutive crops of
tobacco an event that rarely occurs to
stock the depleted markets; and the
most reliable ones in the trade say that
tobacco will sell well for years to come.
Be that as it may, no one whose judg
ment is respected, calculates upon low
prices for the crop to be grown ia 1884.
An acre of medium yellow tobacco, say
600 pounds at only 20 cents per pound
many average over double that price
will bring $120, while an acre of cotton
grown upon the same land will produce
about 250 pounds, which at 10 cents per
pound, will be only 25. It is true that
it costs more to raise an acre of tobacco
than an acre of cotton, but no one whose
opinion is worth a button will hazard the
opinion, that the cost of raising tobacco
is five times that of cotton : and yet the
product of tbe former will command fiva
times that of the latter very often ten
times as much.
I would advise those who intend plant
ing tobacco who never raised it before
not to attempt too much the first year.
lo grow tobacco successfully requires
barns properly constructed, with flues,
&c. A good sweet filler may be cured
on scaffolds in the sun and then hung in
any house or shed on tbe premises to
protect it from the rain. It will be well
for beginners to plant some for "bright"
and some for sweet "fillers," choosing
some one or more of the yellow varieties
for the former, and Mayo, Flanagan or
Sweet Oronoko for the latter. These lat
ter are not as readily cured bright yellow
as those specially nsed for yellow goods,
but they make tbe sweetest and best fill
ers and smokers, so fur as intrinsic qual
ity is concerned. But "brigbts" bold tbe
front rank in prices and their production
is well worth big efforts, for here succees
brings big money.
"There is a tide in the affairs of meu,
Taken at the flood, leads on to fortune."
Tobacco has certainly come to tbe front
us a money crop, and it. will hold the fort
till production exceeds demaud as is
now the case with cotton a thing not
likely to occur for years to come. Then
why not raise tobacco where a good arti
cle can In- successfully grown, as is cer
tainly true of thousands of acres iu North
Carolina that ware in cotton last year
without profit to the producer f

1841, a proclamation declaring that
partisan efforts for er against any po
litical party or the contribution of
money by officers of the government
to influence the elections 'would be
regarded as a cause for removal.' "
The General s proposition is quite
simple, and if adopted would be very
"Provide, by law, that any officer
of the government who sanctions or
knowingly permits any of his subor
dinates to be called on to contribute
money for what are called political
purposes, shall be deemed guilty of a
felony, and on conviction be impris
oned for not less than two yean and
fined at the discretion of the court.
Secondly, provide that any officer of
the government who contributes his
money for such a purpose shall be
held liable to indictment for a misde
meanor and subject to fine or impris
onment, and also liable to a civil suit
for twenty times the amount given by
him, one half of which may go to the
informer, and the other to the public.
Thirdly, let it be provided that any
citizen who knowingly asks an officer
for tnouey for such a purpose shall, as
an accessory before the fact, be sub
ject to the like punishment."

income from their arduous labor ?
In agriculture, the amount of profit is
the measure of success ; and he who

R. L. Kaglakd.
Among the many curious analogies
born of modern investigation, none
are more interesting than those show
ing striking cases of parallelism iu
the habits and customs of animals
whose environments are totally dis
similar. The ocean bed seems peopled
with forms so resembling those of land
that a modification of structure to con
form with their surroundings alone ap
pears to be the point of difference. In
drifting over tbe reefs of our southern
border this resemblance between the
creatures of land and sea is extremely
striking. The gardens of the lower
world abound in lavish growth ; trees,
shrubs, waving vines, are all repro
duced in the wondrous forms of the
sea. Here a forest of coral branches
(Madnepora) raise their myriad of
bristling points, each flowered by a
delicate polyp, and presenting a rich
olive-green tint in contrast to the deep
blue of the channel upon whose banks
they grow. Pure as a crystal, the wa
ter seems to intensify the beauty of
the objects, even in the greater depths;
gayly bedecked fishes move lazily
about, rising and falling among the
living branches, poising, perhaps, to
pluck some raorsal from a limb, in all
their motions reminding us of the
birds of the shore. These gorgeous
parrot-fishes are the sun-birds of the
sea : wondrous tinls azure blue, gol
den yellow, and red mark them.
Some appear iridescent and bathed in
metalic tints as if encased in burnish
ed armors, while many more in mod
est garb, found in our cooler waters
of the North, call to mind the robin
and the thrush, those welcome harbin
gers of spring. But it is not iu their
color alone that the fishes resemble
the birds; it is in the home-life and
love of offspring that we find a close
resemblance. Many are nest-builders,
erecting structures as complicated as
those ot the birds and equaling them
in design and finish.
The Art of Finger Nails.
Mr. Levy, the earn cutter, has
been telling me about the beginning
of his delicate art, which is now
practiced so generally. He thought
that the earliest modern chiropodist
was a German who had practiced on
the queen of England's corns about
1844; nevertheless I see that West
ervelt ou upper Broadway announces
that he began in 1840. Zachari start
ed here before the war) and obtained
celebrity by cutting Mr. Lincoln's
corns. Another generation has come
up paying special attention of the
feet and reading all that ean be of
forded on the subject. One of the best
known chiropodists here began, it is
said, doctoring the hoofs of horses,
and he observed in time that meu
needed quite as much repair of the
feet. There are several women in
this business, and of late years its
profits have been much extended by
manicure, which brings dollars iu
place of dimes. Women are often in
love wth ther own hands, aud I have
known cases where a lady has had
her hand mod led and carved by a
sculptor and kept on her center table.
Few men however, think fingers are
improved in appearance by being
sharpened and whitened like talous
of a hawk. It is however, a pleasant,
listless way of spending an hour or
two every day, to go to the manicure.
N. Y. Tribune.
Pulled From His Den.
A correspondent of Forest and
Stream relates how a boy named Ly nch
in New Brunswick once hauled a live
bear with a yoke of steers. He says :
Mr. Lynch was drawing logs on a
single bob-sled , an affai r consisting of
two runners, with one strongly brac
ed bench or "bunk." He noticed a
hole near the base of a stump, around
which the snow was melting and be
stopped bis steers to "prospect." He
found that the cavity beneath contain
ed a bear, and was large enough for
him to move around quite free) v.
Lynch enlarged the entrance and
stirred Brain up, but all attempts to
inn ict a mortal wound with his axe
were futile. Be thought that bis
chances would be better if he could
get the bear out. Taking his "tow
chain, one end of which was fast to
his bunk, he slipped the double of
his chain back through a rinsr on the
other end, and made a noose, which
he dropped over Bruin's head. He
then gave the steers the haulaway
word. They brought the bear to the
surface, but becoming frightened at
the sight of the bear at the other end
of the line, they broke for tbe camp
in the wildest sort of a ran, Lynch
following as fast as he could. The
bear, forgetting that the steers, besides
outnumbering him, had him at a decid
ed disadvantage, would "set down the
foot of his power" to stop the cattle,
only to be dragged off bis feet and be
convinced that he was a very poor an
chor. The steers reached tbe camp
and rushed into the stable. They
broke loose from the sled when it
wedged into the doorway, and left
Drain picketed to the bunk. Lynch

Christian Missions in Turkey.
It is astonishing how much atten

been paid in Turkey by the Chris
tian churches of the West. The Uni
ted States have vied with Great
Britian iu this particular, and there
are no more prosperous missions
either in European Turkey or in
Asia Minor than those which bear
the American name. The following
figures will probably beget something
like surprise in the minds of many
readers. There are in the Turkish
Km pi re, as is gathered from recently
published statistics, thirty central
mission stations, five colleges for giv
ing ordinary education and others
for theological purposes; 121 churches
400 preaching stations, 900 pastors,
teachers and other Christian workers;
60,000 regular attendants at their
places of worship, of whom 10,000
are communicants. This is a very
respectable exhibit. But what are

The Sanitary Engineer says : When
A 1 A
a naiurai watercourse traverses a
town, and its banks become built
upon, the easiest way of getting rid
of filth and house wastes is to throw
them into the stream. Every man's
instinctive impulse is to get rid of
what annoys him, and not mind how
his neighbor will be affected. After
a while, when the water course has
become sufficiently nasty, the people
come to a realizing sense ef what
they have brought upon themselves
and tbeu try to devise a remedy. In
this they begin usually at the wrong
They look ou the stream as crea
ting the nuisance, and don't consider
that it is their abuse of the stream
that is the source of the trouble. So
they go to work aud cover the stream
up, and call it a sewer. What is the
result? Simply that the stench of
the foul matter in the old channel is
bottled up somewhat, to be vented
through every manhole, every inlet
aad very house drain, and probably
do more real injury than when the
rotting tilth was exposed to the air
and the sun, and diffused its aroma
through the whole atmosphere.
The channel of a small natural
stream through a town or village
ought never to be converted into a
sewer for house wastes. I his will
strike a good many people as an odd
doctrine, but still iT is sound doc
trine. I he functions of a natural
stream and of a sewer are so diverse
that one cannot be made to do duty
for the other.
