To Day her condition is changed and she no longer takes the Lead in Public affairs but is Content to live in retirement giving All her energies to the advancement of com Merce and agriculture. Her industries arc of Many kinds. She is a manufacturer. Of turpentine tar Pilch and the latter being far in excess of the other articles and affording employment for a Large number of Jwo ple. Their manufacture is quite simple Only requiring practice to got Good wages and in the Cypress gloves thousands of men Are busily at work on them. They arc sent to different paits of the world and for durability arc considered the Best. The manufacture of shingles is from w hat it used to be. The greater Patof it was formerly done by hand now most of it is done by machinery. Many years ago old Toncy Rankin was a Shingle maker and by Economy and hard labor managed to support himself and family which consisted of eleven Small children. Old Touey was the happiest of men with his lot in life and to work two Days in the week and loaf the rest he called hard work but when Tony did a Volc it was with All his might.

There is another product she raises which is also a source of income to her and that is Tho Sweet potato which glows to perfection Here As High As Twenty live pounds and of delicious flavor. Five Hundred bushels have been known to be taken from one acre of ground but the Moraga of course is below Tiara c., Avill be known throughout the principal part of tic country. Asau article of food it far sur passes the Irish potato. Next to the potato is the Peanut crop which also grows to perfection Here the cultivation and Zickl of which has b in doubled during the last four years. Then comes the water Melon which can be bought for the Small sum of fifty cents a dozen and of a kind far surpassing any Ever seen in the Northern markets. I was out on a Planta Tion and there saw them fed cattle and informed that they were considered the thing they could raise for that Pur pose allow could a country be More blessed than this with a climate there Snow is hardly Ever known with products such As i have mentioned with facilities for transportation both by land and water How could they ask More they cannot with consistency and All they do ask is time to show what they ran do.

The coloured men Are the Best of labourers. They work harder and suit the South better than any other class of workmen and to Day if she was deprived of him she would be a poor country indeed. He is the most contented of labourers live on less and i in Iblis less than those of any of her nation. The South has a Fortune in the coloured lace if she Only knew it and i think Sho is beginning to Sec it. They build our railroads raise the Cotton and stand the hot scorching Sun from summer to summer they Are the Bone and sinew of that land and upon their exertions All her Prosperity rests. All they ask is a showing equal to the White Man and an Assurance that their life and property will be Safe.

We pass through Springfield Palestine Henderson Crockett and Kusk All of which present a thriving and Busi Ness like appearance. Springfield and Field Are noted for their Sulphur Springs which have la in generally very Well patronized by people from the coast and farther West. On lib route we behold Large hunks of Iron Ore As we ascend the hillsides and the Beautiful pebbles which seem to gravel the roads arc curiosities worthy As a great quantities of lumber Limestone Cotton com and fruit arc transported in wagons to the far West vember. Tho building is a grand one and Cost i cannot describe it because i am not an architect.

News of the week. Nearly 400 mechanics and about 1000 labourers have been discharged from the Washington Navy Yard.

Around Newbern Are some of the loveliest of drives. Among others is that to Pembrook this drive will give you a Good idea of the country for you now pass some of the finest plantations and see turpentine Orchards and turpentine distilleries. For Miles on each Side of the Road is the Long Leaf Pine from which the turpentine is made. Each tree is which consists in Cut Ting a Groove below the bark on one Side of the tree and when prepared is like lie two sides of a Triangle. At the base of the tree about two feet from the ground there is a Large Chip taken out. During the season the Rosin comes from the tree runs Down this place which is Cut and lodges where the clip has been taken out. This is collected at stated times and taken to the.

The papers on enlightened motherhood were especially valuable and embodied a gospel of redemption for the race which Calls High Standard of reverent consecration.

There Are quite a num Ber of opposition lines however and the pro a actors of Sawyer ., of already accumulated a Fortune by their extensive patronage. The Lack of Railroad Enterprise which has for so Many years been As a hidden treasure within the minds of people is now beginning to loom out since the Ellerts in Western Texas Havo been so Success Ful in benefiting the the of that Section and we think it will not be Long until Branch rail roads of the Texas Central and Missouri Kansas and Texas railroads will be running All Over Eastern Texas. We have been in formed that Many wealthy citizens of Marshall Tyler Rusk and Crockett have taken Stock in a Road which is to run almost on a direct line from Marshall to Waco on the Brazos the track of which is now being Laid at the rate of eighteen or Twenty Miles per Day. When this Road is completed then Marshall will be considered in her future greatness As the Metropolis of Eastern Texas.

Chicago october 23, is73. Editor Gazette letter from Chicago that contains Jio thing about the great fire or the wonderful re building of the City would be very deficient because the. Word Chicago is not spoken but that one involuntarily pictures in his mind Billows of flame a desolate waste and a new City. So i shall Tell you something of our great re building at the risk perhaps of giving information that is already a Pait of your knowledge. One year ago last june i arrived in Chicago after an absence from the City of two anticipated wonderful sights and was not in the least disappointed. The train by which i came deposited me on Madison Sti get Cir the Bridge which was one of the Western limits of the fire. As i walked across the Bridge i saw before me As As my Eye would carry me a net work reaching skyward of derricks Guys and pcs. All Down the Street on either Side were buildings of uneven stature in course of construction. You could see them grow they swarmed with Hundred trowels were lifted at a then tingling music suggested that other instruments might yet be Inu onto to make Harmony out of sounds. Mountains of Giuld lib materials fill Street and the dust Over them gave the appear Ance of miniature volcanoes. In some places there were sidewalks and in some there were none. Then casting my eyes to the right and to the left Over an area of seven Miles i saw that All the streets were alike. The scene suggested the idea that a Host of men had ordered a new world to be made and it having been placed in their , they had fallen at once to covering it with palaces. This Moi ing i looked Over the same area from the top of the Tribune building a lofty Lookout i assure you. What a contrast was the Lew from that i be held but a Little time Over a year. Where was chaos now was order and where was Desola Tion now was Beauty. I looked Down upon the streets that were lined by rows of Stone palaces and filled with workmen that carried their tool chests in their minds. Domes and towers and quivering Flag stalls arose through the murky air All around. The grand Pacific hotel loomed up As if every Stone pulsate with a consciousness that it was part of the greatest hotel building in the world. Off to Ward the Southeast the Corner dome of the new Palmer House stood High above the surround ing buildings. Down by the Lak Shoro stood the great exposition building surmounted by three imposing domes. From the Point where i stood the fire Burnt Nort Lra Ard five Miles and now for seven Miles there is an unbroken line of Kiouses. The score was impressive and when i considered w hat had been done by the men of Chicago i involuntarily looked Down into the Street upon their Heads and followed them with my eyes to Sec what manner of men they were. The people who have done this Woik Are As much astonished at it As people who come to see it. We Are surprised and i a favourable sign.
