There to a claxe of rxioplu in tbii
world thai in cither too ignorant or
selrlah to adrai'. for a moment that
rut good can come from one ouUiile
of their particular ncct or order, or
cluo. It is therefore with mingivingii
that I.veutuja on what might be
termed forbidon ground lent some
few illicit ri'jcct whet I have to Bay
n the voice of an Ejyitin.
The farmer of our comity amid
the heat and exeitoineut of oranu
ing their fort-en have, in my judg
ment, inn.lo ninny 1'lun.lera, blun-
dt'in that limy Jt t lo rectified. Hint
they will 1ms rectified we have no
iloul't, for we havo vet to lo con
vinced that our fanner na a liiasn
di aire anything but that which in
right and piiu r and for the well
fire of all who liilior find toil by the
sweat of tho brow for a liviug. The
fust mistake they have made in in
the Miijuiieiit of certain cIuksjh of
aiictiltmal tooU and iui!uiiictM
from the I'.iiKt, Huch n jilowa, har
row h mid we miht say wagona. We
do lint wish to bo understood n Hay
ing that tho farmers have done all the
rthiiiig of IhoHO nrtielea, for their
hhipiuent in thiHStntc jwill not exceed
Tiu.iK ti iniHyenr, yet every jienny
tnl.cti r un tho mechanic in imjiovcr
iHhingtho farinern tlieimelveH.
Spi'iiking iioiu our own observa
tion wo Kco one of our industries
Htricken down; wo see men that have
lubored earnestly nt the bench qui
etly belling their little all and ur
chasing tracts oMaiid, not that there
is a money in.lueiiiritt in forming
hut because they fiud that their le
gitimate niiort in withdrawn from
them and the trade that should have
been theirs is c(eiiled in tho Fjist
fStates and they nro forcod to turn
from tho Hiijiport obtained from the
fariiiera hy mi cm haiig.i of com
merce, to the raisiiiL' f their own
Hiibcistence; ho Hioko who should d. -vote
their timo to the hhop expend a
part of it in gardening while those
who farm eliouldHUpply tlieso wants.
The best of iik cliunica are idly
trumping up and down our county
H.f kiug for that which they have no
hopes of olila'iiing, that in employ,
mentnt their trade.
Another fact. We ask our far
mers to point us to any apprentices
in our county who nro learning to le
mechanics and who are to fill the
places of tho mechanics of to-day.
What nre boys of tho farm going to
do? Are they to be trained up for
the law? (irugos nro opposed to go
ing to law, and if they were not wo
lire fearful that many of tho lx.ys
would starve to Jcath fur tho want
of brains to make a living in an over
stocked market. They cannot all
become oflicms for the supply is nl-
ready greater than the demand. Ex
perience and history both havo
taught us that the farm will not re

to say nothing of tho millions toiling
and starving in tho older cities of
Whon we como to look nt our own
State and county; when we eo tho
vast fields of ore, coal and tiinhcr
lying idle, which, if worked, would
employ constantly 250,000 bands in
bringing it into usefulness; when
wo come to take into consideration
the number of skilled workmen that
would find employment in manufact
uring ond then compute tho amount
of bread stnfls that theso thousands
would consume wo havo an item that
is well worth looking after.
We are told by Patrons that it is
not the policy of the order to enter
into manufacturing. True and well
said. But so long as a system of
shipping from tho Eastern States of
thoso articles which can be made at
home at the same price or a very
slight advance is kept up, just bo
lorlg will our mechanical industries
be paralyzed, and just that much
longer w ill our metal lie hidden in
the earth, and our timber lie rotting
.. . i ...I i
on luo ground or ne rumiewi

The Eastern capitalists and manu
faotuios will remain where they are
just as long as they can find a peo

transportation charges, and pay for

What hope have mechanics for a
market who seo the community on

their money East while they stand
ready to 'manufacture the same arti
cles at the name prico equally as

The mechanics do not ask tho far
mer to go into the manufacturing
business. All they nsk is a liberal
patronage; that they may be al
lowed to supply the wants of the
farm as fur on practicable; that they
receive for their articles the cash
par incuts that aro sent out of the
State; and as the demands of the
county increase so will the facilities
for supply le increased. Otherwise
as soon as tho Eastern manufactu
rers find that tho ability to supply
our own wants are completely bro
ken down, up will go freight charg
es and prices on articles as in tho
case of the shares to the Cast
.Steel l'low and many other articles.
And to get out of each predicament
the farmers would have to go back
to IheWginiiiig again. The princi
pal mechanics finding other employ
ment will Iki loth to engago again
in a business that has only proven
n source of subsistence at best and
finally a failure. - The boys in place
tf being instructed iu some useful
trade, will be tinned out in munv
instances without money or hope

nnd disheartened they fall an easy
iirev to vicious habits and become
hopeless vagrants, nnd aie at once
I dubbed by the community as a spec
imen of the (cius UimhIIum.
Our mechanics should be enrour
aged to enter into tho manufac
turing business more extensively and
if needs bo let tho fanners advance
a loan of money if they have it to
sparo for the purchasing of proper
machinery, that tho mechanic may
bo enablod to manufacture cheaper
and better. For farmers to go into
the manufacturing business and hire
all the lubor done, nt the present
time would le on a par with the man
that undertakes to succerifciully furm
and hire all of tho work done. The
result would bo a total fniluro.
THE "MARSH HARVESTER."

En. Indki-knuknt. -Some time
since an nrtielo was published in the
iNtiKi-KitPENT in which the writer ex
pressed ins pretcronce lor saving
grain by reaping and binding rather
than beading. I believe he was
nearly correct. Now will you al
low me to say a few words in favor
of a certain kind cf machine for
reaping, to-wit: tho Marsh Harvest
er. With this Harvester three men
nnd one span of horses will cut and
bind and put iu tho shock at least
ten acres per day and save the grain
better than any other way. With
any other reaping machine it gener
ally requires four or five binders and
one man to put it in the shock and
two to run (he machine at least
seven men nnd four horses, and then
they will seldom tverage more than
twelve or fifteen acres, or about two
acres to the band, per day w horeas
with the Harvester, they will aver
age at least three aores per day to
the man and bind it better and save

THE WAR OF RACES.
Vickiburg Attacked by Negroes-Twenty
ot the Assailants Killed and
New Orleans , Pocember 7.
Vicksburg reports last night tl at
negroes wero on tho way to that
city to take the Court Houso was
confirmed this morning nt 0 o'clock.
The alarm talis rung to warn the
citizens, and business was suspended.
Tho whites are under arms, march
ing out the various roads to meet
the enemy. The Court House is in
possession of tho whites. The negro
Sheriff is a prisoner. A telegram
from Vicksburg received by General
Emery to-dny says fighting began at
0 o'clock this morning. Tho militia
cannot maintain order. The mob
has possession of the Sheriff and
A Vicksburg special says 700 ne
groes attacked the city this morning
on three loads, and were driven back
by citizens with a loss of 20 killed
and wounded and 40 prisoners. Tho
attack was mado tor the purpose of
reinstating Crosby, the colorodShcr-
iff, who was requested to resign bo.
cause be bad not given bonds. The
negroes in the country are roported
ed to be burning dwellings and gin
bouses. Oliver Brown, a white man
of Snydor's Bluff, is killed.
The origin of tho trouble was a
dispute which bad been going on
lately between tho Taxpayers' Asso
ciation and the citizens and county
officials. - The Sheriff was acting
without giving bonds. The Super
visors refused to order a new elect
ion. Several officials being under
indictment and citizens despairing
of relief, last Wcduesday they pro
ceeded to the Court Houso to do
main! the resignation of a number
of county officials, who all fled the
parish except Sheriff Crosby, a ne
gro, who resigned on outurdny. A
card, signed by C'rotby, culled on the
Republicans of Warren- county to
support him. He denied its author
ship. This morning the negroA ad
vanced on the town by six roads,
with the results already stated They
numbered about 750, Several ne
groes stated to reporters to-day that
they wero ordered by Sheriff Crosby
to como to the citv.
Negroes are raiding in the coun
try. Resolutions were adopted at a
meeting of citizens this evening rec
ommending citizens to refrain from
violence against Crosby, and merely
to attempt remove bitu from office
The Trouble Attributed to the Democ
racy. Cmc.ioo, December 8. A Trilun
New Orleans special gives tho fol
lowing statement of the troubles in
Vicksburg. The riot grew out of an
attempt on the part of theDcmocrat
ic party to get rid of Republican
county oficcrs elected by undoubted
majorities, by holding a public meet
ing and sending a demand for their
resignation, with threats of violence.
Such a meeting was held in Vicks
burg several days since, nnd such
county officials as could bo found
tcudercd their resignations, among
them Sheriff Crosby, colored.
The county offices have siuco re
mained vacant, nnd the Court can
not be held for want of a Sheriff. On
December 4th Governor Ames issued
a proclamation of information re
ceived by him, that certain riotous
and disorderly persons bad com
bined together and by force and
arms and threats and intimidation
bad expelled from office the Sheriff
of Warren county and threatened to
expel sovernl officials, who have
been compelled to flee for their lives;
this because of their color. Such
conducis in conflict with the laws
of the State, w hich be has sworn to
enforce Ho commanded all said
riotous and disorderly persons to dis
perse and rotire peaceably to their
homes, remain there, and to submit
to the legally constituted authori
ties of State, invoking the aid and
co-operation of good citizens in up
holding the laws and preserving the
public peace. It is probable that
tho movement nt Vicksburg is in
conformity with orders from Gover
nor Ames to Sheriff Crosby to rein
state himself and other county of
ficials. It is understood that Gov
ernor Ames is opposed to pnblio of
ficers in Missippi resigning at the
dictntion of mass meetings, and that
he is pledged to use all force he can
command to uphold officers legally
Expected Renewal of the Attack.
VicKsnrno, December 8. It is re
ported this morning that the negroes
will renew tho attack on the city to
day. The citizens are all under
arms, and have been largely rein
forced from adjoining towns. Com
panies of men have been sent to the
country well armed and equipped.
The prisoners captured yesterday are
closely watched to prevent lynching.
The negro loss yesterday is estima-,
ted at about 70. One white man
killed and two wounded. Crosby is
still under guard. Tho whites hold
tho entire citv.
