TlIL'ftfSDAY, JUNE 2, 1881
It is someti uies a tuisfurt nm' to the
fcompion people of the country that
great wealth is possessed by a few in
dividuals. There are few instances of
Hhcu of great wealth who were satis
Jfed with their pile-. Asa general rule"
there is no limit ft) human avidity, and
li Wealthier Art often the most eager
to gain more. They stretch out their
arro-t a if to take in all the earth.
And these are they who are flow troub
ling the whole country by their grul
ing efforts to increase their riches by
itttffendeeMts speculations ifV eotfee. It
W;i5 ascertaiiled with tolerable certain
ty as early as January last, that the
coffee crop of lSSo-'87 would fall short
about one-fourth, as compared with
the previous years' crop. This, then
toriaed the basis of the sfiecnlations
which have since ensued. They have
been great, iu some instances net
ting to the operator two millions of
dollars. These speculators have nc
fluired control of all the coffee in the
markets ot' the country, and all that is
likely to come into them within a cer
tain period, ft passes from hand to
hand, all without moving a bag.
. . i -
MM January the price has gone up
from 8 to Zl cts. It is wholly the re
sult of speculation.
Consumers are using; less coffee to
day than for years before. The sales
in this town have fallen off in some
. i ai i i i
instances to less man one-nan; anu
what is true or this market, is pro
bably true of all Southern towns, and
it may be throughout the country; for
the outraged public sense of justice and
fairness revolts at the idea of being
victimized by a few insatiate cormorants
fattening on the life-blood of the hard
toilers in the land. These are troublers
of the people and de e ve their execra
tion. If the people of the country
could unanimously agree to drink 2
cent rve instead of 25 cent Rio, for
the next 12 months, they would get the
speculator "by the Mil and run them
into "corners' from which there would
be no escape without frightful losses.
It would be no great deprivation either,
so far as the southern people are con
cerned; for they learned pretty well
bow to do it, during the late war, and
upon occasion could do it again.

We copy from the Charlotte Observer
of June 1st, the following, oyer the sig
nature of 44 tfp Knight," Jt presents
rather a gloomy picture ;
Taxes both iu city and eoujity, arc
exceedingly heavy, and their collection
Utterly ruinous. Hundreds of tax and
execution sales are going out at enor
mous costs and sacrifices, and as to the
trity of Charlotte we laye little or nothing
substantial to show for $09,000,00 of
annual tax levies. Trade ' slack; enter
prises at a stand; capital stagnant'. A
little show in "fuss a nft leathers" ia pay
ing dear for the whistle,; 4qr sewerage
is incomplete; water expensive and in
sufficient; the m'aliu lights are pot as
good as formerly; the city street car
(rack a cheat ou the town aiid a nuisance
to all vehicles. With an immense out
lay for fire compauies, and with all the
sate-guards of brick uud stone walls, slate
or metal roofing, and expensive outfits
and equipments lor the men, our build
ings are more exposed than ever before,

Editor Watchman: This is ail unusual
ly hard year upon farmers. Last year
the seau was very nuravorauie m ai
most all kinds of crops. Very little Porn I
was raised. The wheat was utmost a
total failure, antl what little was raised,
sprouted and rotted on the fields before
11 cuuiu in- naii u u iu. x lie ivmcTU vroji
was very inferior, and most of it has been
sold at from one to five cents a pound;
scarcely enough to pay for hauhng it to
market. Mone is therefore, excedinirlv
scarce, and yet most fanners arc having
flour. to buy at from $2.50 to $3-50 per
sack, and corn at from 80 to 90 cents a
bushel, or shift as best they can without
t. 1 hose of us who have good clover
fields, are fortunate indeed, as with plenty
of that, stock will keep in good order
with, very little grain.
Ho far this year, we have had a very
favwniblc season-. ?fo hard) washing
ruin bUt J list chough to keen the land in
good plowing order. The crups have
been well worked, so far, and corn and
cotton are growing finely, wheat and
oats arc exceptionally tine. Indeed. I
have not seen a finer prospect for wheat
for many years, and 1 think that a heavy
crop is now almost an assured fact.
Most of our tobacco misers sowed seed
he-Is as usual in the spring, but prices
have ruled so low, that not one out of ten
or probably more, have planted any at
all. Such prices are ruinous to the
farmer, and unless there is a decided im
provement, the culture of the weed will
be entirely abandoned by us.
Year after year we have been mort
uairimr our crow to Drocure fert iliers
and when they were gathered in the fall.
it usually took at least three-fourths of
the cotton to pay the debt, consequently,
we have been yetting poorer and poorer,
every year, until finally, as if with one ac
cord, the tanners very nearlv all con
eluded to make no more mortgages for
fertilizers. 1 have no idea that one
tenth, or probably cue twentieth as much
fertilizers have been bought in Franklin
as heretofore Indeed. I scarcely know
of any one who used it. We saw we
could' not stand it. and every one went
to work to make as much home made
fertilizer as possible, and it is astonishing
the quantity we did make. Compost
heaps were made with cotton seed, muck,
ashe scrapings from the hog tkjii nnd
hen roost, stable manure, etc., on which
all the soap suds were poured. Every
row of cotton was fertilized abundantly
with this, also a large amount of the com
crop, and it is now showing a decidedly
more beneficial effect than the commer
cial article would have done. I have
never seen corn and cotton with a better
stand, or looking more flourishing than
And now, when we sell our crops iu
the fall, wo have the consolation to know
that the proceeds will go into our own
pockets, and not to pay off a mortgage.
If farmers will pursue this course here
after, and diversify their crops a little
more, taking care always to raise an am
ple supply of bread nnd meat, they will
soon get out of debt and have- longer and
fuller purses with which to supply them
selves and families with some of the com
forts and luxuries of life.
Your correspondent of last week (E. P.
H.J is right in urging all farmers to join
some "Farmer's Club." Men in every
other brauch of business, have their or
ganizations and clubs. "Why should the
mm uicr uoi, nave me same, mere is no
doubt that much good would result from
well organized and properly conducted
tanner's Clubs. We have one at Frank
lin Academy which we arc told is in a
flourishing condition, and we trade thn.t
much good may grow out of it, and wo
auvise an our farmers to join it.
The health of Franklin is very good at
this writing. The assessors and tax list
takers will commence operations at Ellis'
school house on 7th June.

Thyatira Grave Yard.
Messrs Editors .-The writer, with vour
permission, would call the intention of
your many readers in Rowan and else
where in Western North Carolina, to this
venerable old burying ground, Thyatira
Grave Yard. Here is entombed the dim
of hundreds of the old pioneer settlers of
mis part ot tne State, and many of their
descendants to the oresent time. Yir
after year the existing generation has met
on an appointed day, and the briars,
weeds and bushes are cut off, whilst noth
ing is done to preserve the ancient monu
ments, that marks the "raves of the an
cestors of many of the best families in
nvituvwviiua, -uany oi me old soap
stone, slate and granite tombstones have
disappeared under the accumulated soil
and nearly all are partially so, whilst the
moss and beating elements have made it
almost impossible to decipher the letter
ing and designs that the ancient sculp
tors cut uion them. Ought not some
thing to be done to restore and beautify
the resting place of those old pioneer
fathers aud mothers who planted, nursed
and guarded' the infant Presbyterian
Church in Western North Carolina, and
many of them watered with their blood
ine scion oi our iioerty. A few hundred
uonars win accomplish this. Many of
tne wealthy families scattered over the
State can trace their ancestry back to the
old irt of the grave yard at Thyatira
Church. We will mention one the
Brandons : Old Col. Brandon, of revolu
tionary, fame, was buried here. The
writer was shown the grave of Col. Alex
ander Work Brandon, Juried in 1854, by
Maj. N. . Halt, an old citizen. Maj. H.

S?.wn deposited in the same grave,
while the name of Col. A. W. B. is in

of the revolutionary hero; and in a few
years all evidence of this fact will pass
away. The descendants of Col. Brandon
in 2orth Carolina are many and among
them some of the most distinguishl and
wealthy families exist. The writer men

leave home on Monday set out a couple of
rows on that day. Now comes the strange
part of the story. The slips which he had
planted on Sunday were iu the center of
Ids garden, and though they lived, yet he
was nerer able to gather a potato
from them larger than a pencil, while on
either side of the two rows the tubers
reached the usual size. He abo says that
the ground upon which they were planted
appear to be blighted sind nothing that he
