The Devil and the too wide spread influence of Savage Heathen Pisut in the United states. A great to Cal has been written not but very Low people of the North have any Dis Tinct idea in relation to its mysteries still i Ewor know the extent Rind influence Over the negroes of the South. No White men tire Ever initiated Inlo its and no Cuns can be found which will in Duco coloured people who arc Daniil liar with its Workings to reveal what they know of it. But those who have had the Best opportunities to torm an intelligent have no doubt that it is the Devil worship Lui Livo with additions by the teach Ings of the hebrew and Christian adapted to suit Tho purpose s of those who thrive upon the credulity of its believers. In voodoo ism. Tho belief in voted oots is Al most Universal the coloured population of the but its stronghold a in Louisiana and in the lower regions or Mississippi. It is also thrives exceedingly in the Soa islands of South Carolina and in Georgia. Pivot Only the Igno rant negroes of the also the intelligent and Well Educa Ted Mai lattes of new those of the Jill True who Are wealthy and Strong believers in the supernatural pow ers of the Voudoo. There arc coloured men in Louisiana who have been educated and arc possessed of Superior intelligence and thorough scientific of them extremely arc As much afraid of the Voudoo sus the most ignorant Field hands. Even White men of intelligence and High social Posi Tion Are in dread of the mysterious Powers of the Voudoo Pra coition and frankly say that there is something strange and unaccountable about the matter which they cannot and of which they stand in Awe. Nothing positive is known in relation to the rites of but it is certain that its or As they arc. Are its leading and exercise a much greater influence than the males. The present Voudoo Queen in new Orleans is a full blooded and is Sis tar of Harry member of t us Louisiana legislature from rapids. A Kijuu Snake Story. The symbols of Voudoo ism the Serpent holds a prominent and the Voudoo Are credited with wonderful Power Over snakes of All kinds. A Louisiana planter of undoubted veracity re lates tin instance of the Power of which fell under his own observation. A party of Field hands were engaged in gathering Spanish when a sudden scream arrested ins and a resupply a negro boy came run Ning toward him with a Rattlesnake bringing from his the Poison Ous reptile having its fangs firmly imbed cd in his flesh. The boy s father caught the Snake by the threw it on the and killed it. The Case was a serious one. The planter was two or three Miles from his and there was no time to procure medi Cal Assisi glance. Just then a couple of negroes came Forward and offered to cure the boy. They first plunged his Arm up to the shoulder in after which they took him into a were they passed some time in mysterious which no one was allowed to wit Ness. The next morning the boy was about As and though he was somewhat affected with nausea for a Day or his cure was com plete. Soon after this gentleman s overseer was bitten by a and although he had the Best of medical in less than twelve hours he was a Corpse. Voudoo1no a Rattlesnake. The same gentleman relates n still More Story. As some of his hands were at work in the in turning Over a in go log they discovered an immense Rattlesnake which had been Hilling under it. The reptile at once showed fight. A distance away was a negro a half who was reputed to be a Voudoo. The gentleman immediately sent for this and on her he told her to take up the Snake. The instant she approached the reptile its rage appeared to it commenced Boring with its head in the As if trying to get out of sight. The negress walked up to patted it on the Anil handled it without it manifesting the least disposition to harm though Only a minute before it was aggressive and furious. In this Cane there was no possibility of de As the Snake was discovered by and the woman did not know of its existence until she was called by her master. After it was killed its fangs were and found to be of extraordinary length. Voudoo ism in Indiana. Although the Headquarters of Rou Duoise Are in Louisiana and evidence of its influence crop out in regions far Remote from those localities. A late num Ber of the sit. Democrat tells a Story to the a Lect that one Joseph Able having some difficulty with a Samuel coloured the former made a contract with the Devil to place a Snake in pain s leg. Paine declared that he suddenly Felt the body of the Serpent embedded in his and he knew at once that he was but had not the Power to help himself. His wife exercised the Snake by a poultice of red and succeeded in re moving when it was found to be a foot in length. She says that it wriggled on the floor at but last she caught it and threw it on the fire. The truth of these statements was sworn to before a magistrate. The Devil a Power in politics. The influence exerted by the experts in Voudoo ism Over the coloured people of the South is can possibly be imagined by the northerners. The delusion is preached against by ministers of All the Catholic Church has fought against it with out Avail. Devout methodists and baptists Pray to be delivered from its but have no doubt As to the supernatural Power of the priestesses. Planters pay Voudoo Queens fees of from 8100 to 8500 and find the negroes they employ industrious and without they secure the Good will of those personages they Are in continued trouble with their hands. Schem ing politicians make use of the same influence to effect their and throughout a Largo portion of the South the through his ostensible is an acknowledged Power in politics. Panther Hunting in Kentucky. A Panther Hunt took place in Kentucky a few weeks since. The appearance of wild animals near the town of Bethel alarmed the peo ple of the and messes. Morri Jeffries and organized a they three Miles from a huge male measuring eight feet four inches from the end of his nose to the tip of the and weighing considerably Over 200 though apparently poor in flesh his Teeth were almost As his claws Strong and Sharp. He was comparatively and was fully competent to master a half grown i out Lii thing of one who started in at least. The beast was life at the same with no great killed near the residence of or. Or but honesty and in Burgher. The country around is Dusty built up that while very and the citizens say dissipation destroyed the they have frequently heard this Panther during the Post few months a fearful agon Tot destruction. A French civil Engineer nud has invented an engine of War to which he has Given Tho name of satan s rockets. The following is n description of this formidable and infernal weapon of a tin receiver in the shape of a conical Ball is placed at the end of an Ordinary rocket. A chamber filled with a composition of which Sulphide of Carbon is the and which in combustion gives out a tremendous is placed in this a Mutch connects the chamber with the end of the rocket. When about to be used the tin Ball is filled with and then the rocket is shot of in the Ordinary any. On King the spot aimed rocket lights the composition inside the chamber of instantly the Ball bursts and ses the Petroleum Anil a Shower of fire Falls and continues this rain of lire will cover a space of from Twenty to Twenty five Yards according to the size of the rocket. They Are manufacturing three sinus. The first throws a Quarter of is gallon of the Sec Ond half a and the third a gallon. They can by thrown three and a half Miles. The aim is very and precision is obtained by Means of a stick attached to the which preserves the inclination Given to the rocket at the moment of firing. Experiments have been made against St. Cloud. In less than ten minutes a considerable extent of ground was covered with a sea of fire. A committee of artillery officers witnessed those experiments. This committee has declared in View of the fearful effects of this engine of no civilized nation should use it except in and that it should be employed solely in the event of the prussians throwing shells filled with Petroleum into As they did at Strasbourg. The committee of National de Fence has Given the invention a place at and has ordered the manufacture of these satanic rockets on a Large scale. Two Hun dred workmen arc employed. This Force is soon to be and within a few Days there will be a Largo St oct of these rockets on to use in Case of necessity against the prussians. No lome. No ifs Fortunet How sad the there Are thousands who know nothing of the blessed influences of comfortable merely because of a want of or from dissipated youth Spont in frivolous amuse ments and demoralizing Assoc a leaving them at Middle when the physical and intellectual Man should be in its greatest enervated and without one Laudi Blo ambition. Friends Long since Confidence and nothing to look to in old ago but a Mere toleration in the Community where they should be ornaments. No Home to go to when wearied with the struggles incident to no wives to cheer them in their Despon no children to amuse and no virtuous household to give rest to the Joys of life. All is Blank and there is no Hope of Succour except that which is out by the hands of private or Public charities. When the family of the industrious and sober citizen gather around the Clie i fill Fife of a wintry the homeless Man is seeking a shelter in the cells of a station or begging for a night s rest in the giving vent to unearthly screams. Two Little sons of or. Hearing the clogs bark upon the Side of the supposing a Squir Rel had been and taking the went up to shoot it. In a few minutes they very much and declared there was an elephant up the and begged their father and messes. Morrison and t. B. Who happened to be to go with them and see it.

Morrison started immediately to town for men and while or. Harrison galloped off across the country for that Veteran Hunter or. Willis leaving Bur his and dogs to keep watch Over his Panther ship. Dur ing their absence the Panther kept occasionally giving utterance to a kind of Low raising him self brandishing his and and looking Down with a contemptuous Eye upon the faithful dogs at the Root of the tree. In a Short time the reinforcements and assuming positions at various four of them fired at once into the left reserving the remaining barrel for an emergency. The shots were and with a Dull heavy thud the Panther fell to the his last expiring Effort being to Knock one of Tho dogs about fifteen feet with his right Arm.

The census has shown that there has been a most alarming increase in the number of adult persons in the United states who can neither read nor write. In 1840 there were who belonged to this class. In 1850 it had increased to in 1860 it had reached the portentous aggregate of and now we have the fearful figures raised to or nearly three no Lions of our adult Popula Tion who can neither read nor write. The Grant of the grand rapids and Indiana Kail Rord is through the heaviest Pine land s in Michigan. Value of these lands is Esti at evils of Protection exposed. . It May be the examples of the Tariff i have adduced Are cases of and that we cannot argue against the use of a thing from its abuse. Then we will con Sider the Protection of Wool and Woolen which May be called National if any May. The Woolen manufacturers made Ous gains during the War for he and when peace came they sought to maintain their High prices. The breeders of fancy which they were Selling As Leigh some times As 8300 a were notoriously the first to stimulate the Farmers and Wool growers to form Wool growers As to get a High Tariff on Wool. The Woolen manufacturers soon joined and they proceeded to the impossible task of making Wool dear and so enrich ing the and making Woolen goods dear and so enrich ing the Woolen manufacturers. They got a new Tariff on Wool and woolens in which was designed to keep out the cheap wools which had been formerly and and a Tariff on Woolen goods that beamed Well nigh prohibitory. By this the cheap wools costing from 9 to 37 cents a were Tarif fed from 13 to 57 per cent. Woolen cloths for clothing were Tarif fed from 56 to 95 per cent. Carpets and drug gets from 50 to 83 per cent. Woollen rags 152 per cent. Dress goods from 44 to 75 per cent. Hosing 75 per cent. Blankets 92 per cent. Ready made clothing 54 per cent. They got this enormous Protection this Law to enable them to charge so much More for their they were Burthen de with an internal Revenue tax of six per on their manufactures but this six per was taken off next which relieved them of Anual taxes eighty million dollars but the Tariff remained a before. If Protection could Foster Indus try surely Here was Protection enough and yet the result has been most in roast departments of the Wool Industry. The act had hardly been when american Wool began to de Cline in Price. From 1827 to the average Price of american washed was 42 cents 8 Mills a year after the passage of the ht0 Tariff on it fell to 35j in it was 43 cents in 30 cents 44-i but a Pound of Wool in 1870 would not buy so much in Market As the same would in 1860. This depression in the Price of Wool so discouraged the Wool according to the department of everywhere Farmers parted with their Fine Wool some one the whole. In the Western states shop that Cost their owners Large sums of Money to improve the were allowed to die of some were slaughtered for their pelts and some were sold at 25 cents some were killed Ami fed to the and in the United states there was a loss of four million sheep. The troubles of the Woolen manufacturers began with their High the importation of foreign Woolen goods steadily increasing. In 1867 there was More than Twenty one million dollars Worth imported in 1867 we Are officially informed that Worth was and in 1869 942 Worth. High duties encourage smug gling. In 1865 there was imported into of British Woolen and in the year of our big Tariff on Woolen what made these canadians import por Over their regular Woolen goods immediately on the enactment of our big Tariff on Woolen goods these Canadian importations were smuggled into the United states. It is the More unjust in because they might be sure we could not do if they had a High Tariff. No. And it would not be right to suspect our own people of smug gling across the Canadian the Philadelphia record of nov. Says one Hundred million dollars Worth of various goods is smuggled into this country in every year. Cape of Good new and australian wools arc now practically excluded by our but they come fast enough into where cheap wools encourage manufacturing. Those conversant with the business predict that All these wools will be made into and travel Over the Canadian lines without payment of duties. The principal reason Why the manufacture of Woolen goods is so depressed Here is because the Man Ufa Furer is limited in his Choice of wools. The multitudinous kinds of Woolen goods made All Over the world depend on a Grout variety of wools arid their but Here the manufacturer is restricted mainly to american Merino with which he cannot make the 1 Best face goods. If he had German or australian Wool Lor he could shut out foreign Competition in the of As Well As in the coarser in which latter he keeps the but Ilie Torii a on foreign wools kills therefore he contents himself with coarser giving a face with shoddy. But the Market for this shoddy stuff is and when the manufacturer has filled it he turn to anything else. Got up where they Woods of the most Beautiful Quality. But they Are made for show and not for they Are made in part from imported and cannot be made for prices that will com Mand the on account of the High Tariff on Wool. If i have made myself under i have sufficiently explained Why both Wool growers Aud Woolen manufacturers Are depressed the because after killing off four million they still of Fer More Wool than the limited wants of the manufacturer Aud they cannot Export be cause they cannot compete with free Trade countries. The mus facture is restricted in the Choice of and in this condition the making his goods out of free Trade Steps in with his Superior undersell spite of the Tariff. The Best exposition of the difficulties under which the Woolen manufacturers labor is found in the letter of Edward Harris a Woolen manufacturer of Rhode Island. He shows How the Tariff on his materials kills him. The foreign clothing Wool he requires is Tarif fed from i10 to 120 per on Olive Oil 25 cents a on for fuel and motive per ton on for clean ing 123 per on Dye and other average of 40 per cent. The effect of All these tariffs is to enhance the Cost of manufacture 76 per while the Tariff on the finer kinds of Woolen goods is Only 50 per giving an advantage to the foreigner of 26 pet cent. It is Plain thai the Woolen manufacturer needs to have his foreign Olive teas and everything else he works Clear of All and then he could defy Coin petition. If he can stagger alone with 26 per against give him free Trade and he will be master of the Situa Tion. And How about the is he to lose Protection by the free admission of foreign Wool is pretty much kept but Fine Woolen goods come in plentiful enough at 50 per and this must govern the Price of the far mers Wool. The Farmers would find an increased demand for their if the Woolen manufacture a were flourishing. It is pleasing to reflect that All Woolen manufacturers Are not struggling. There Are three or four Blanket manufacturers East of us who do pretty Well. Blankets Are Tarif fied. According to from 61 to 92 per cent. The Quantity imported in 1867 was quite and for the last the new York world one has been imported. An Ordinary pair of blankets Sells for which is a pair More than we could get them if it were not for the Tariff. New. If we allow two million new blankets a year to forty million of these three or four Blanket manufacturers Wilt get out of us More thaa a fair Price. There is another department of the Woolen manufacturer that is very but i cannot Tell to what extent. There Are three or four carpet manufacturers East of us who have a Patent for a car pet weaving which gives them a monopoly against their and As the Tariff on carpets of from 50 to 64 per cent. Keeps out the foreigner to some they make a Good thing of it. The chief Man among these carpet machine weavers is one he has written a Book to show what a Good thing Protection is. What does he the correspondent of the Cincinnati has been reprimanded by somebody for not speaking respectfully of president Grant. Don in reply for the president has no respect for the i re Spect for the president. It is for his excellency to keep no his and if he fails it is. Only that i am released from any Effort at Ito but i feel it my duty to dissent. It is incessantly reported about Washington that the president s official irregularities May be largely traced to artificial and it a even stated that he has been of of and Over again incapacitated for considerate attention to if we apply ourselves to Wisdom we shall never without True but Learned with everything.
