It is remarka'de that m the fii.-;
rive yi' trs oi tl.c third period, tlie
total exportation i f domestic lice
was greater by nearly 40 per cent,
than in the eleven years subsequent.
The rice industry of the South was
practically commenced anew during j
this period, and if It had any en-!
couragemeut at all.' it was in the!
protection afforded by the import1
tax ou foreign rice. This was.
equivalent to giving the home pro- 1
ducers a start of. say SO per cent, j
ad valorem in the home markets ;
against the foreign grain delivered
duty paid. But even with this ad
vantage, while the prices glittered, .
they were not necessarily protira- j
ble. The crops were cultivated for
many years at extraordinary cost '
and at great hazard. These em
barrassments were diminished m
process of time, and meanwhile, as
labor became more ellicieut and ;
less costly and the consumption of j
rice inereased. so the area of culti- :
vation and production expanded, j
But at no time since ist."j couid
rice have been cultivated as a staple
product without the protection af
forded by the import duty on for
eign grain. It is certain that with
out discouragement the domestic
production will by the expiration of
the present decade be equal to the
amount in 1850, and will be larger
than will be demanded by the do
mestic consumption. This result:
will be practically accomplished as ;
soon as the great labor-saving ma
chines of the recent system of grain j
culture become modified so as to be '
applied to the peculiar necessities
of rice husbandry. "In con
clusion."' says the memorial, the
facts relating to the American rice '
industry lor the past sixteen years
go to prove that it is an example j
where the taxation of a foreign :
product is sound policy if not the ;
duty of the government: First, for
the prevention of a monopoly in
either the domestic or foreigu prod
uct to the advantage of the domes
tic consumer as well as ot the do ,
mestic product. Second, for the
encouragement and permanent
establishment at h.-me of an indus
try necessary to arb-rd food hospital
supplies in time of war. and so to
promote national independence.
Third, because protective taxation
has been cleaily educational to the
dome-tic product, practically devel
oping if from its infancy until it has
reached the promise of such suc
cessful permanence as in reasona
ble time to become independent of

from Co'. .John Screven, of Savan
nah, officially representing the rice
industry of Georgia, praying that
the pre-ent tarilV on idee be retain
ed, with tacts showing the absolute
neeesMty lot such protection. The
following is a synopsis of Col. Scre
ven's memorial: It is now, he says,
the commencement of the year, and
the planters should commence op
erations tor the new crop. The
agitation of the tariff is giving
them such concern that there is a
general tear that their investments,
going back, in some instances, more
than a hundred years, will have to
be abandoned. Credit is seriou-l
impaired, and some ot' the most
liberal bankers and factors are
calling in their loans, thus crippling
many and ruining some of the
planters. It is. therefore, import
ant that it should be known as
soon as possible what is intended
to be done as to the duty on rice.
Tin-ie is great fe.u that some ad-ri-i-
measure may be sprung in
t'ne i oi:,i!ji; tec on Wa - anil Means,

A Lively Time with Hoars.
K. II . Rawles proposed that we
take a bear hunt on Monday morn
ing. We made every preparat ion
the evening before, and after a
hearty breakfast, at .1 o'clock mount
ed our horses for the hunt. We
were provided with Winchester
rifles and three well-trained bear
dogs. After a run of about an hour
they came to bay. We hitched our
horses and crawled through the
brush to t'ne dogs. 'The under
growth was so thick that we could
not see ten feet ahead of us, but at
last we found the bear, a large
brown one. perched on the limb of
a large pine tree, abour a hundred
feet from the ground. We took po
sition and commenced tiring. Bears
are very tenacious of Pie and this
one proved no exception to the
rule, as we each tired three times
before he fell. When we reached
him he w as dead.
We now started back, intending
to cut a way in from our horses and
to jiack him out. but we had not
proceeded one hundred yards when
the dogs became very excited and
com.uteu.ced barking up another
tree. Looking up we discovered two
bears, a brown one and a black one.

limb. We took position with the
understanding that I was to take

black one. dust as we got ready to
tire 1 cast my eye down the tree,
and near the ground, 'lie lunsh
having obstructed ii'.er view. I dis
covered a large beat hanging to the
side of a tree broad -ide to me. Ml .
Rawles, being further lound. could
not see it plain, and told me he
would reserve his file and lor me to
go for him. I wa- about forty leet
from ii and liled twice, when It
tumbled. b.ull w ouinleil.
We now turned our attention ;
the other two. in the tree. At the
first fire they commenced bawling
the b liking ot the dogs, the bawl
iug of the bears and the rapid ti. iiig
of our W mehestei s made it lively.
I can as.-ure nu. We tired tiiiee
shots apiece before they fell. One
of them was pretty lively when he
readied the terra tirma. and i; ie
quired t wo nioi e shot s, at a dist .nice
of ten feet, to kill him. Tie- ot he:
rolleil about lii'ty feet down the .
and was dead when we got toil.
The d"gs to, w took the trail of tin
wounded one. and aliei a liiuoi
4 quarter of a mile brought it to
bay. When wo came up we found
it up a large macondra tice. about
thiity feet ti' iu the ground. He
looked to me to be as largo .is a
:"our- ear old bullock. He was bad
ly wounded, but still able to make
an ugly light . He fell at the tit -t
til'e, but lodged : Ii the folks of I la

(teneral Ransom is having piling
,1 riven at Trenton in order to prevent
the sanil from filling up the basin. His
farce is certainly doing some good work
Notwithstanding everybody says
hai ii times with us. you can see plenty of
the legal fraternity busy as bees some
days in Trenton. They must be doing a
thriviuK business, unless they are work
mt on time.
The w eather has been so bad that the
fiirmers are progressing but slowly in
their farm operations but they are do
in ; ail they can. hoping that the good
lime is just a little further on when
bright sunshine will dry their fields so
they can plow them.
Tile horse and mule trade is extreme
ly null with us this season. The time
men who furnished the croppers last
season had in many instances to take
their stock back again or else run them
over another year with but a dim hope
of bettering themselves.
There is one thing that has helped to
ruin many of the Jones county farmers,
particularly the colored farmers, and
that is fast riding with little feed; and
another one is top buggie-8 to ride to
church on Sundays 10 or 15 miles after
a hard weeks' ploughing.
Tw o of our Trenton merchants en
quired of me on Saturday last if I knew
the price of lard in New Berne. I re
frrrrd them to the Daily Journal and
they got Friday's paper and could not
find the lard in it. It has been so long
since any country lard has been in mar
ket that we don't know how to quote
it. Kd. j
Mr. Louis 11. Mallard has raised and
sold this season thirty dollars' worth of
rutabegas on one-half an acre of land,
besides what he used for the feeding of
his stock. Mr. Mallard sav-s that ruta
bagas beats cotton all to pieces. He
manured them with Long's chemicals
and stable manure. I will send you, as
soon as I can obtain it, the manner in
which he mixed together the chemicals
and stable manure, also his plan of cul
Corn would sell high in Jones county,
if the people had the wherewith to get
it. for every one you talk with nearly
says he believes that it will be high in
the summer and two thirds of them say
"I shall have to buy." I hope our
farmers will try to shorten their cotton
farms and enlarge their corn and oat
farms, plant chufas. I find them the
poor man's friend. You can fatten!
more pork on one acre in chufas than :
you can fatten with five in corn. !
News is scarce this week. Evervbo j v i
has gone to work in earnest to prepare j
their farms for croping. Money is ;
scarce but I see that the farmers have .
commenced their old business to raise i
the wherewith to ran their farms
Mortgaging. I notice that our Register
of Deeds has had to call in help to keep I
up with them. Our farmers will never j
succeed any better until they can change j
tins time svstem, which is certainly J
making the mo-t of them poorer every
Mr. Pete Andrews, w ho resides about
17 miles from New Berne, on the Trent ;
road, is the neatest farmer in Eastern j
North Carolina. He has the straightest
corn row s, the smoothest potato ridges, !
and the cleanest fence corners, and his I
ditches re always wed off of every par- i
ticle of grass whenever he hoes his crops, j
Whether it pays or not. it shows neat-1
ness. Mr. Andrews raises excellent
crops ami his land is not as rich as some i
others whose crops are not as fine as
The convicts will be here on Saturday
the (th inst. to commence work on the
Trenton and Core Creek road. Capt.
Page is working like a beaver calling on
the farmers for teams and wagons to,
haul them over here from Onslow coun-1
ty. A large force. I understand, is t
preparing their quarters for them. ;
They are building them near Mr. B.
Mo: ton's, about three miles from Tren-t-
11. The farms of Mr. B. Morton and
Mr. Thos. Harrison will be enhanced in
value at least one-'hird by having a
good outlittothe New Berne road when
his new road is completed.
I hone our farmers will use more
li"m--maue manure this season than
Usu al. Every one is scraping and gath
i ring together till that he can of woods
ra ul-1. ditch bank and fencelock. It
w ill pay every farmer to scrape out his
iYi.ce locks un.i if he can't haul them
away, let him throw it out into the held
in heaps and then pick it up and pitch it
further in. By this means ho can in a '
sh' rt time improve several rows of corn
ail an und hij farm. I have tried it and
it pay-. I consider it the best way to
g t it out. Just try it and you will cer
tainly be convinced that it will pay you
hi tter than hauling it. Another very
important thing our farmers don't at-t'-n
I to is raising hogs, w hich is one of
the easiest things to do. if thev w ill give
their hogs ucli attention as they need.
Some of our fermers say it don't pay to
rii.-e hg.: I don't suppose it does. uch
hogs as sena- farmers raise, a year and
a half 1 1 1 ar. 1 only weigh a hundred
; .r.i.'ls. If you wall give your hogs two
..irs ,;' 1. a n a day from the time they
are littered until you get ready to put
up to f'..tten. they will weigh you over
1 pounds by t'ae time they are hfteen
months old. You must give them, say
to c.eh hog. about one teaspoonful of;
lime oia-e a fortnight and you need not
have any fears of the cholera and when
voi.i slaughter them you will discover
that your hogs are clear of worms.

are hospital wards on three floors, the

the rooms, but at one end this does nut
reach the cross wall, so that one stand

rooms. Very soon the old wooden dic
ing hall, so many years in use as a chapel,
w ill be no longer used. Everything at
the penitentiary, as in all the State in
stitutions, is progressive and in the line
of improvement. The tower of t'ie
tier of cells is receiving the finishing
touches, and considerable interior wor!
is going on. The tier of women's cells,
which composes a separate buiiJing
some distance in the rear of the main, is
nearly ready for occupancv. Strange
to say. the number of women in the

year after year. They are now iu a

North Carolinians to Wear Hie Uliie.
The ofHcers of the Wilmington Light
Infantry, in this city, have received an
order from Adjutant-General Johnstone
Jones prescribing a uniform for the
officers and privates of the State Guard.
The object of this order being to have
all the companies composing the State
Guard to be uniformed alike. The lull
dress for privates will be a double
breasted tunic of dark blue cloth; skirt
to extend one-third the distance from
the hip-joint to the bend of the knee;
two rows of buttons, seven in each low:
collar same height as for officers' coats.
fac d with scarlet cloth, four inches
back on each side, cut square, to hook
up close in front: number of regiment
in white metal in middle of scarlet
fac ing of collar on each side: slashed
cuffs of scarlet cloth, tw o and one-half
inches wide, with three small buttons;
skirt of coat on each side of the opening
behind to be faced with scarlet cloth,
ornamented with four buttons. T o
straps of dark blue cloth, piped web
scarlet, let into the waist seam on e n ii
side the coat, and buttoning above liie
hip. to sustain the waist beit. All
officers shall wear a double breast, d
frock coat, of dark blue cloth, tho sknt
to extend from one-half to three-fourths
the distance from the hip-joint to the
bend of the knee.
The Confederate gray is entirely ig
nored. United States regulation uni
forms being adopted instead of tbTjiv.
All officers and men will wear h.elrrMs
of felt. U. ti.. regulatiou patterns. rx
cept that on breast of spread eauie in
front the arms of the State of North
Carolina shall be displayed in white
metal. Helmet for officers to have
chlnchain and spike, but no colds or
tassels: those for enlisted men to have
spike and leather chiustrap. Plumes lor
general and field officers, white buff. do
The age of ""reconciliation" or "'re
nunciation" has dawned upon Ninth
Carolina at last, when our troops ihai
the blue. We would rather have seen
them continue with the gray, however.
It is a color which has been honored
and ennobled in a hundred hot lights
and North Carolinians have especial
cause to feel proud of that color and
proud to wear it. 117. Rern'ir.
