SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 1860.
CAsn SrsxKM. Our experience in
the newspaper business has thoroughly
convinced us that the credit system won't
pay that promises won't keep a newspa
per in running order. : We have, there
fore, adopted the cash system payment
in advance. Volume One of the Hegis
TF.a will close with the issue of Septem
ber 4th, 1869, when all subscriptions on
which advance payments have not been
made, will be discontinued. "We would
be sorry to loso a single subscriber from
our list because of the adoption of this
rule, but justice to ourself demands it.
If the paper is worth the price asked
S3 it is just as convenient to pay it at
the commencement as at the close of the
volume : if it is not worth the subscrip
tion price, don't take it there's no com
pulsion in the matter. We hope to retain
all our old subscribers, and to obtain
many new ones for Volume Two. As
our subscription list enlarges, so will the
eic and interest of the paper inorease.
Christian or Heathen I
The class f tchite people who own Jthe
Democratic party and have run it since
' the inception of the doctrine that colored
people have no souls, says the Marysville
Appeal, seem to possess singular religious
faith, as well as remarkable political ideas.
According to the tenets of these strange
Democrats, no one has a soul, or posses
ses equal political and civil rights, unless
they are of the white or Caucasian races!
There has been some change in the scale
since the abolition of slavery. Somcfew
Democrats now admit tb at color is no
objection to the citizen, but everything
hangs upon race. A man can become a
citizen, if native born, though he be as
black as a crow, his nose as flat as the
Egyptian Phynz, and his legs set in the
middle of his feet. Our Constitution
proscribes no man, but modern Democ
racy is an exclusive Aristocracy ; barring
the progress of humanity by proscribing
every being not of kis race though many
of the proscribers are in doubt as to their
own. "v - v -
Are men of such political faith civil
ized, half-civilized, or barbarians ? The
Chinese, who are among the proscribed,
and who are Pagans in religious faith,
are not more proscriptive than modern
Democracy. Is proscription evidence" of
civilized advancement and superiority of
race ? If so, the Chinese and Japanese
are far in advance of modern Democracy
or Proscriptive Americans as they
. hardly allow a foreigner to enter their
territories. We call the Chinese a . half-
civilized people because of their exclu
siveness j and if this be a true apprecia
tion and estimate of the Oriental races,
what is the fair and true estimate of the
Americans who adopt similar proscript
ive principles ? What kind of people
are these Americans who not only deny
civil rights to Chinese, but who persecute,
mob and murder these inoffensive people
if they come to our country ? . Is there
any Democracy or Christianity in such a
cruel and murderous clan ?
A new notion has been introduced at
social parties in Paris. At the entrance
of the salon is placed a large covered
basket containing small boquets of flow
era, and presided over by a modern Flora
Each, guest plunges his or her hand into
the basket ana takes a posy, which. the
women attach, to their dresses or put in
their hair, and the gentlemen place in
their buttonhole. The latter promenade
through the salons, each in search of
lady wearing a similar boauet to his own
and when she is found,he has a right to
take possession of her and retain i her as
partner for the rest of the evening.
