The Local Paper.
What tells us so readily the stand
ard of a town or a city as the appear
ance of its paper? And its youth or
its age can as well be determined by
the observing as by a personal notice.
"TJie enterprise of its citizens is depict
ed by its. advertisements, their liberal
ity by the looks of the paper. Some
papers show a good, solid, healthy
foundation, plethoric purses, and a well-to-do
appearance generally; others
show' a striving to contend with the
grasping thousands around them, try
ing hard to wrcrsch an existence from
their close-fisted communities. An oc
casional meteoric display in its columns
of. telegraph or local, or of editorials,
Bhows what it can do if it had the
means; but -it cannot continue in the
expensive work until I support comes,
which ought to be readily granted. A
newspaper is like, a church it wants
fostering in the commencement, and
for a few years ; then, as a general
thing, it can walk alone, and reflect
eredit upon its location. Take your
home paper it gives you more news of
immediate interest , than any other pa
per can possibly do? it talks for you
when other localities belie you; it
stands up for your rights; you always
have a champion in your home paper ;
and those who stand up for you should
certainly be well sustained. Your in-
terests are kindred and equal, and you
must rise or fall together. Therefore,
it is to your interest to support your
home paper, not grudgingly, but in
liberal spirit j as a pleasure, not as a
. disagreeable duty, but as an invest
ment that will amply pay the expendi
ture. Chicago lie-publican.
The Secret of Advertising.
The secret of advertising is not yetdis
covered by all who advertise A good
deal of money and space is wasted in
clumsy announcements, which nobody
reads, heavy 'standing placards, which
no more stimulate purchasers than the
names on sirns. Much money is also
wasted iu circulars, which are thrown
into entries and down cellar-ways, and
always received with contempt, or in
so-called advertising sheets, which no
body reads. There is no medium that
comes into such close contact with the
people as the newspaper; and if adver
tisers only understood their business
jthey could make their part of the pa
;per as interesting as any other part of
it. In many of the German papers
advertising is carried on to an extent of
which we have no idea. The newspa
per is the real exchange. Everybody
goes to it with all his wants, and al
tnost all his woes. The cunscquencc is
.that the sheets are as lively as neigh
borhood gossip, and often the pages de
moted to advertising are the best parts
iof the paper. And the papers are read
through. The announcements are al
ways short, always "transient," and
pne looks at tbem in the morning to
pee what the world has to offer him that
day, by way ot business or amusement.
Perhaps his next door neighbor nas a
rare niece of china or a choice cngrav-
r f . '
ing to sell, or he would likejto get an
odd number of some serial, which you
Jiappen to have ; somebody, somewhere,
announces something that interests you,
and so life is made more endurable, trade
is quickened, and wants are supplied.

the advertising columns of newspapers
in this country for all the wants and
queries of life. Hartford Courant.
A young lady, who has been study
ins finance for some time past wishes
to know whether the day rate of gold
affects the nitrate of silver.
The Lost Boy.
A Paris letter tells the
story of a fete in that city :
A wealthy family in the aristocratic
boulevard Maleshcrbes were amusino
themselves in seeking the king's por
tion, or the ring in the festival cake,
when a lady of the company said to the
hostess, "1 wish my portion to be given
to the poorest little boy we can find in
the street. 1 he servant was dispatch
ed on this freezing: nisht, and not far
from the house he found a ragged ur
chin, trembling with cold and hunger.
He brought him up, was ordered into
the gay saloos? where a thousand lights
glittered, and a sparkling fire gladden
ed atid surprised. He drew her por
tion which the benevolent lady had
promised, and, as luck would have it,
the little fellow found the "ring" (beans
they use in Paris instead), and of course
he was "kins;." Thev all shouted out
that beins a
he must choose, a
queen. He was
asked so to do, and
looking: round the company he chose
the very lady who had proposed to cede
her poitiou of the cake. He was ask
ed why ho chose her. lie said, "I
don't know; she looks the most like
mother!" "Mother! whose mother ?"
'My mother! I never knew her, but I
was stolen away from her, and here is
heryportrait!" With this he drew out
from his ragged coat a likeness, which
proved to be that of the lady herself,
who, in Italy, had had her child stolen
from her, and now he turns up a poor
little ragged Savoyard, dragging along
a miserable existence in Paris, while
his mother, by an intuition, perhaps,
felt that in the air near to where she
was, was one so dear to her.
Senator Nye on "Kuined Hus
bands " The Washington corres
pondent of the Cincinnati Commercial
heard Senator Nye give the following
"opinion," just after the trial of Mc
Farland, for the killing of liichardson,
which resulted in acquittal :
When an infuriate 1. husband pistq'.s
some one of his friends, on suspicion,
because he is supposed to have seduced
his wife, or to have been seduced by
her, it is true heroism to take the con
sequences and be hanged, according to
law. This would create genuine sym
pathy, and be the highest possible vin
dication of domestic honor. If McFar
land was hung now, I would weep over
him as a martyr to the marriage vow ;
but being acquitted, he goes his way,
in public estimation a low, mean, cow
ardly, trrunken fellow. It is, you see,
a great wrong to Dan, and he ought to
feel aggrieved that he is not hanged.
Of course, with his wife unfaithful to
him, life is a desolate blank, a dreary
waste, and not worth shucks. And if
I were Dan, I believe, as the jury fail
ed me I'd go hang myself as Judas Is
cariot did, like a gentleman.
The Mobile Register, of May 28th,
states that the amount of cotton plant
ed in the vicinity of that city exceeds
that of any previous year..
The Mobile Register mentions the
arrival, at that city, of cotton machin
ery from England, and says it is de
signed1 for an extensive addition to the
Tallassee Mills, for the purpose of spin;
ning a fine grade of yarns for export
an experiment as yet but believed by
the most practical men to give promise
of success, and a profitable business for
the South. It seems from this that
the people of the South are turnins
their attentiou to manufacturing
well as producing the raw material.
A Southern paper states that a
enterprise has been inaugurated in
abama this year: that ot sending
den vegetables to Northern cities.
exports, ;thus far, consist of strawber
ries, blackberries, beans, peas, cabbag
cs, squashes, beets, etc., something new
being constantly added with the pro
gress of the season. It is estimated
that at least G,000 bushels of English
peas have already been forwarded, with
a corresponding proportion of other ar
ticles, amounting in value to from
000 to $10,000, and that the amount
will reach 30,000 this season, to be
greatly increased another year. The
points supplied are Chicago, Louisville,
St. Louis, Cincinnati and other W est
em cities, besides a considerable quan
tity gent to New Orleans, and over the
Mtbile and Montgomery road.

Proud of His Mother.
It was a cold night in winter. The
wind blew, and the snow was whirled
furiously about, seeking to hide itself
beneath cloaks and hoods, and in the
very hair of those who were out. A
distinguished lecturer was to speak, and
notwithstanding the storm,' the village
ers very generally ventured forth to
William Amnesley, buttoned up to his
chin in his thick overcoat, accompanied
his mother. It was difficult to walk
through the fallen snow against the
piercing wind, and William said to his
"Couldn't you walk easier if you
1too"k my arm V
Perhaps I could," his mother re
plied, as she put her arm through his,
and drew up as closely as possible to
him. Together they breasted the storm,
the mother and the boy, -who had once
been carried in her arms, but who had
now grown up so tall that she could
lean on his. They had not walked far
before he said :
"I am very proud to-night, mother."
"Proud that you can take care of
me ?" she said with
"This is the first time you have lean-
ed upon me," said the happy boy.
There will be few hours in that
child's life of more exalted pleasure
than he enjoyed that evening, even if
he should live to old age, aud should,
in his manhood, loviDgly provide for
her, who, in his helpless infancy, watch
ed over him.
Gen. Hagood, in his recent address
v . r . t -it 1 .
as rresident ot tne unaricston agri
cultural and Immigration Convention,
ade the following statement with ref-
erence to tne decrease or tne negro
population of South Corolina : In
IT'JO it numbered 107,OUU; in 1SUU,
146,000; in 1810, 196,000; in 1820,
250.000 : in 1830, 315,000: in 1840,
377,000; in 1850, 381,000; in 1860,
402,000. According to the annual av
erage, from the population of the
freedmen in 1865 may be presumed to
have been 421,000. But according to
the State census in 1866, it diminished
to 386,000, leaving a deficiency of 35,
000, or an. average of 8,776 per an
num in the, State of South Carolina
alone. It L might be allowed to spec-k
ulate on this question, I would say that,
. i ii
in my opinion, tne decrease nas ueen
not less than 50,000. But taking the
figures themselves, even a.t that rate,
in less than forty-four years, the entire
colored population of South Carolina
will have disapeared.
Qomal River, Texas. The Co
mal river, in Texas, is only 200 miles
Ion": from its Source to where it crap
ties into the Caudaloupe, yet it is as
lare as the Mcriraac, knows neither
freshet nor drought, and has a rapid
fall. Situated in the centre of the firi
est wool growing country in the world,
and surrounded by the industrious Ger
mans of New Uraunfels, its surpassing
advantages for woolen manufacture
were never developed till during the
war, when a splendid mill was erected
and equipped with Manchester machin
ery. The "Oneida." The Board of
Trade of Great Britain, in an official
communication to the Foreign Office,
states that the Board is of opinion that
the sentence of Captain Eyre by the
English court at Yokohama, is "inade
quate to the gravity of the offence."
The Board does not consider itself jus
tified in commencing criminal proceed
ings against Captain Eyre, but says
that the United States Government, or
those who suffered loss by the death of
relatives, may bring suit for damages
against the owners of the Bombay, to
settle the question of the bad naviga
tion of that vessel.
The Red Bluff (Cal) Independent
of June 2d, says : There seems to be
quite a large immigration to Oregon
this summer. Scarcely a day goes by
but that several teams pass through
town on their way, to the "web nation."
This emigration seems to be caused by
the failure of crops in theower part
or the fetate. A large portion are from
the San Joaquin Valley, and -the gen
eral accounts given by them are that
the crops of that valley are almost a
total failure. Many are well supplied
with agricultural implements, and when
questioned as to the propriety of tak
ing them with them, say they were un
able to sell them ' at any price, hence

Washington," Jue 13. The Presi
dent has sent to Congress a message in
condemnation of the atrocious manner
in which the conflict in Cuba is car
ried on on both'sides, and representing
that the object of the Cubans who
urge their recognition us belligerents
is to embroil us in warfare, and declar
ing his inability to see in the present
condition! of Cuba those elements re
quired to constitute yar in any sense
of international law, and inviting the
attention of Congress to all the rela
tions and bearing of the question in
connection with the declaration of neu
trality and the granting of belligerent
rights. The message was referred to
the Foreign Committee by both houses.
Chicago, June 14. The Ti?nes'
Washington special says the President's
message on Cuban Affairs created quite
a sensation, no less for the matter than
for the manner. Thurman, in thrjSen-
ate, characterized it as a proclamation
to the Cubans to lay down, their arms.
Cox, in the House, said it was the most
imprudent message ever sent to the
the American Congress, and asserted
that Caleb Cushing wrote, it.
Washington, June 16. The Pres
ident sent the following nomination to
the Senate to-day : Amos Ackerman,
of Georgia, to be Attorney General of
the United States vice E. K. Hoar, re
signed. Ackerman is U. S. Attorney
of Georgia, a native of New Hamp
shire, formerly an old line Whig and
an active'ltejblican since the forma
tion of the party. He is an able law-,
yer and well qualified for the position.
The House proceeded to vote on the
Cuban resolutions. Logan's amend
ment to give parties the same advan
tage of intercourse and trade with the
United States, consistent with the laws
of nations, was rejected by 101 to 77.
Bingham's substitute was then voted
on and carried affirmatively through all
stages, so that tins resolution is fiually
adopted. The excitement here, owing
to the state of Cuban affairs, exceeds
anything ever before witnessed. Pri
vate assurance of a recast of the whole
Cabinet is freely
by the Presi
dent, inere are ominous hints or im
peachment. Butler is emphatically ex
ecrated by Republicans.
The Tribune's dispatch contradicts
the rumors that Secretary Fish is about
to resiirn, or that there is any disagree-
ment between him and the President
No reason exists for believing Hoar's
resignation indicates any change in the
Cabinet. Ihe Presidents Cuban mes
sage was under consideration in the
Cabinet two weeks before it was sent lo
Congress. The best information leads
fo the conclusion that it was written
by Assistant Secretary of State, Davis,
and revised by Secretary lish and At
tdrney General Hoar.
An Infernal L'rime. ine crime
charged against a man named Lang
a dealer in picture frames in New York
city, is one that should give him pre
eminence in the criminal catalogue for
diabolical intent. He shipped a box
in April last on the New Orleans steam
er and secured an insurance upon it of
S1.G50. and the box proved ttf have
beeu prepared with explosive and in
flammable material, and was only pre
vented from burning the ship by the
- . IV
watchfulness and activity of the Capt
tain. In the box were vessels of alco
hoi, gasoline and turpentine, and fire
was apparently to have been set to
these by a chemical that would explode
oy friction. The friction was provided
for by mice shut up in a box, who, in
gnawing their way out, were to fire the
train tiiat would have destroyed the
ship and all her company at sea. Here
then is, if the charges prove true, j
man who deliberately contrives that
awful calamity, fire on a ship at sea

of twenty or thirty persons to secure
thA email nrize of S1.G50 insurance

of sea captains and sailors.
It has been said that every man has
at least one good point in his charac
ter, A gentleman, traveling on Sun
day, was obliged to stop and have one
of the shoes of his horse replaced. The
farrier was just going to church, but
suggested to the traveler that Jem Har
rison might be found at home at the
npxt fdrto. This proved to be true:
and the rustic who had led the gentle
man's horso to the spot, exclaimed,
"Well, I must say that for Jem. for it
is the only good point about him, he
do never go to church.
