The Florida Everglades.
,.Ati hour before,,spandown and we
were off for the everglades.' The' in-
side .passage from Jupiter .Inlet .ito
LaKe'"Worth crossess ah. arm of this
'iiri~lbous,' region. Th'e distance is
twenty miles.' 'The IPath iI known 'to
but five white men. 'They have 're-
peatedlyI staked it out;, but the India'ts
quickly pull up the stakes. The sav-
ages desire' to.'retain. an' exclusive
knowledgee, of ;the: wonders :of the
glades, and ,artfully mislead and mysr
t:ify the pale-faces. ..There is but one
Firm 'spot between the light and the
lake. It,.is known as .the "Indian
Camping Ground.' We' were Hope-
ful of reaching it before dark, although
it was eight miles away' Nboputjzte 'is
more intricate than the bayous and
lagoons' south ot Jupiter. Our course
lay near every 'point of .the compass.
Moore was our pilot. He had .been
through the. passage; twe rity times;
but he ;repeatedly lost his way.
;Steadily .we continued oh our way,
north, south,, east and west. By sun-
down we found our selves back within
half a mile of the light.' We could
hear the dogs barking through the
mangroves,' notwithstanding we had
sailed several miles. ,
' The -wind died away, the twilight.
faded; aind we were in darkness.
SHammoi'io bent himself :to the Oars.
Fortunately the night was rather
chilly, .and unfavorable for sandflies
and-mosquitoes, but while at the light-
house we had taken on board a large
delegation of fleas. They tried by
industry, and we suffered correspond-
ingly. We 'blundered on through the
gloom. We were lost in a sombre
lagoon, bordered b) broad fern of a
height :truly extraordinary.- When
the mistake was discovered we had
gone over a mile out of our way.
Our course was retraced. The watery
lanes were more perplexing than the
streets of Boston. We would think
we were moving along all right when
the route would abruptly end. The sky
shone in thie inky water, and reflc,:ted
'the wierd cocoa-nut palms along the
shore. Again 'we turned backward.
Moore kept a sharp'lookout ,for land-
marks. "Now we're-right," he said;
"I remember that dead .,rubber, tree."
But there was: more than one dead
rubber tree and we. were not right.
Then the pilot thought he recognized
,a crook in a mangrove, or. a peculiar
malformation of an air plant. His
imiginatlon must have something to
do with it, for it-Was so dark that I
could see neither air-plant --nor man-
grove. The situation was anything
but agreeable. We could hear large
fish popping from the water. Alliga-
tors crashed through the swamp, and
the doleful chant of a death-owl float-
ed. over the bayou. Every minute
we expected to be dashed to pices by
a frightened manatee.
It was nine o'clock when we swept
between two small islands roofed with
custard-apples. As we were swinging
around a curve, Moore pointed to the
right, saying, "Hold on. Keep her
in There's the Indian Camping
GroundL; nov-.'". He was right. It
was a strip %,f firm ground, the only
oasis in this desert of swamps vegeta-
tion. We landed. .Groping through
the furze, I found a lt.v decaying
sticks and started a fire. In t,;,- flick-
ering light I looked about me. Nev'er
had 1 seen a iiiore dismal spot. One
small, scraggy oak was our only shel-
ter, and under that we spread our
blankets. To add to our .discomfort,
a cold, northeast wind arose, and the
scraggy oak began to dance and
whistle. The water splashed drearily
amiolig the reeds, and' the boat kept
up an uneasy rocking. The dim -light
of the fire brought into view the
crotched posts and ridge-poles left by
wandering Seminoles. They were
scattered about us like so many gib-
bets. : .
. After hanging our bars, we squatted
around the dying coals and made out-
a supper. Suddenly Hammond clap-
ped his hand to his leg and uttered a
cry of pain. It was startling. In the
fire light saw him turn down his stock-
ihg and run his hand' up'the leg of his
pantaloons. When he withdreW'it a-
dark object was clinging to his fore-
finger. "A tarantula 1" I exclaimed.
He glanced at it and shook it off .in
horror. The thiug struck trie on the
head,'andI wason my feet-in an in-
stant. It fell to the ground,' and my
appetite went with it. An Exaniina-
:tion showed it 0to be a .large black
scorpion, that' had been dragged to
the fire in the rotten, fuel. Its sting
was distressing. (Hammond's leg'
began to swell. He was quite cool
'over it, and after bathing his-leg in
alcohol continued his supper. 'After-
ward he grew uneasy and complained
of pain for sometime. The bite of a
full grown scorpion is very poisonous.
Last year a lady in-the Miami settle-


',meni having been stung in the neck,
died ,within a few hours. During ,the
winter months scorpions are torpid,
and their poison lacks the extreme
virulence characterizing it in,' the
months of July and August. ,,Mopre'
flooded us :with. stories, of this.insect
before we 'turned in. -They had their
effect-I slept ':but little. The fleas
Were 'lively, and I could not shake 'off
the scorpion. '
Before 'dawn Moore was pattering
4irountd the. pots and kettles... The. fire
was snapping when he shouted,
"Come, boys, get up! We're going
to have a ortugese breakfast, .this
fn9rning. '


"What is a Portugese breakfast ?" I
asked .
"An awful row and nothing to eat,"
he answered. "Come, get up."
.So' wegot up'and had a crude meal
of fried pork and hard bread '"
Blankets rolled up,. sail was hoisted
and the Indian Camping Ground re-
ceded from view. The water was
turbid, and' the stream very narrow
Tall canes, broad.':ferns, and thick
saw-grass had take-.q the place of,.the
mangrove swaminps. We" were in the
glades. I had heard my companion
.peak of a point called the Rapids.
My imniagination had pictured them
'afterIthe Rapids of the St. Lawrence.
They were twelve feet wide andti twen-
ty feet long. The total deflection
was about a' foot) not enough to create
'a musical ripple. Enci-rcled by larme-
brakes and lily pads,- they relieved
the monotony of the journey, and
were the only rapids I have seen in
Florida.
All day long we were in this arm of
the Everglades. The lagoon became
a ditch barely the with of the boat.
This ditch was as crooked as a ram's
horn, and was intersected by hund-
reds of -similar ditches. All were
lined with stunted bushes; and choked
by reeds and saw-grass. Most of the
time we could not see twenty feet
from the boat. At times the water of
extraordinary depth, and at others so
shallow that we had difficulty in get-
ting through. The bottom was
mucky, but: occasionally the muck
had drifted, and clear silvery sand wa's
seen. This sand 'underlies the glades.
The turns in the ditches were fre-
quently so-shoirt that it took several
minutes to push the boat around
them. At intervals we burst into lit-
tie lakes covered with lilies as large
as pie-plates. I dropped a -trolling
line into some of them and caught a
number of fine black bass.
While pushing our way through'a,
narrow ditch, we were confronted by
a smashing big alligator.- He had a
large fish in his mouth crosswise. The
path was not wide enough for .him, to
pass, and he could not turn around.
He appeared to consider his chances
for a moment, and then made a rush
for the boat. As he passed under it
he lifted us from the water and we
could afterward see him, fish and all,
crawling on the bottom.
7 I wish I could accurately describe
the strange and beautiful flowers
peering from the saw-grass and dot-
ting the little lakes; also the. many
brilliant insects that trooped over us.
There were striped mosquitoes with
golden fans over their eyes, winged
daddy-long-legs, green spiders with
rows of eyes like the guns of'a water
battery, house-flies with eyes under
their wings, tripletailed-spindles, hog-
eyed humming birds and water spiders
as large as gingersnaps. I caught
queen bush spider.- He had a shell
on his back as large as a pictare crab.
The colors were translucent. There
were gilded crickets, red grasshop-
pers six inches long, and millions of
Iong-waisted insects with mottled
wings. But the flowers were magni-
ficent. The colors were of a creamy
white, delicate yellow or charming
pink, and they emitted the sweetest
perfume. One in particular merits
attention, for it was very scarce. I
saw not 'more than a dozen on the
;-hole trip. Its creamy leaves were.
shapC like the wings of a bat, hooked
at the anlTes, and its pistils seemed
mounted witt; Chinese characters
fashioned from moten gold. A long
feeler, like the antenna of abutter-
fly, shot out from the center ob the.


filled with streaked c0ckets. Judging
by the number of ridge poles, the
place is a favorite camp for the Semi-
noles. A path trailed over a hundred
yards of scrub. I folbwed it.
Lake \Worth was before me glowing
in the sunshine. It. stretched to the
south until its waters-were lost in the
horison. Ponipino were jumping from
its waies, and a fleetof alligators was
floating off the shore.' A long black
point pierced the lVrke on the east,
designating the enhance to Little
Lake Worth. I say, black point-it
was as black as e-boqj4 and seemed to
be alive. It was aliwe--alive with.all
ligators. They coed it as giull
cover a sandbar.- n this shore we
camped in the lig i ofa sunset too6
glorious for rIaH.y Lwas the dream

The -Fig.,
The .following essay. iporn "The
Fig," by Dr. Z- II. Mason, was read
before the Fruit Growers Association,
at the late meeting in this city, ,
The Fig: Its Culture and prepara-
tion forMarket .. .
For several years patIJ 'have ern-
deavored to direct theattention of the
people'of Florida'to fig culture, and
have 'given such information as I pos-
sessed, founded upon experiment, and
the experience thus gained, as I
thought, would tend to, develop this
important product of the 'South, be-
lieving that the profits to be 'derived
from the fruit when properly prepared
for market would prove to be' nearly
as great as that from orange _culture;
and when it is understood that but
little more skill is required in prepar-
ing this fruit than is possessed-, by
those who dry peaches, many persons
will be induced to engage,,' i-n :this oc-
cupation, which must prove lucrative.
The fig can be raised successfully
,upon a great variety of lands, resem-
bling in this respect the Orange tree.
A soil rich in vegetable~ritter, slight-
ly moist, but not wet, seems to suit it
best, and produces a luxuriant growth.
The largest avd most productive trees
I have seen grew nearsprings of water,
from which fact I have been led to
that irrigation might prove beneficial.
SThe fig tree, producing large:crops
of fruit (in. favorable.. years three
crops), must necessarily, be a hearty
feeder, and should, therefore, receive
each year a liberal application of man-
ure,. made by composting good muck
with ashes and lime, thus furnishing
the necessary mineral and vegetable
food. Some persons advocate the
plan of planting the fig among their
orange trees. My objection is this:
The fig sends its roots a long distance
in search of food (I have found them
forty feet from the tree), which robs
the orange of the manure that has
been applied to it; the leaves of the
orange turn yellow atd the growth is
arrested; therefore I would advise the
planting of the orchard separate from
other trees.
There is no distinct and -definite
nomenclature of figs; a few varieties
are described and named, while the
larger number are designated as the
blue, black, or yellow fig. Many are
too small for drying purposes, though
valuable for the table. In linking a
selection for drying purposes, I pre-
fer those of large size and of a rather
dry texture, though any of the large
varieties will do; the color makes no
difference or flavor from the imported
article..
SThe fig can be readily propagated,
both in the spring and, from cuttings.
When the terminal bud began to

the trees nmay succeed. They require
no.sugar or syrup-as the fruit dries it
forms its own sugar. The greatest
amount of lab&'or and trouble" is in
gathering; ifpih.ked by hand it :Will
be found a tedious process. The best
plan is to hcld a'sheet under the trees,
then shake tfHFiMi'-bs hlrd enough to
make' the 'ripe:frdit falL,. ,Do not place
the sheet -on: the; ,ground, as the ripe
,fig- will burst, open; andbe, ruined .for
drying., Prepare ahath. of strong'lye,
made from potash, -such as 'will swimn

thefigs inma basket and dip in the lye

as much as possible to 'faciliate ai rd
drying. The second day you can flat-
ten the figs by pressing ,them irfththe
hand. The hurdles with the fruit on
them must be placed under shelter 'at
night, or when 'it rainsi- The 'objec-
tion to drying in thle open 'air is,.that
a fly lays its eggs in the 'fruit, and in
a short time they become wormy ; this
can be obviated by heating them,jin
an oven or stove-,just hot enough to
destroy'the vitality of the-egg, but not
enough to candy the fruit. It requires
a- little practice to know when the
fruit. is dry enough; they should be
soft enough to pack close in a box
with moderate. pressure ; keep better
when packed close and4 are freer from
the attack of insects.
The boxes should contain from ten
to fifteen pounds, as'i' ni masses of this
size they are not likely ito become dry
and insipid. In 'making :the boxes
use oak, cypress, or gum, but do not
-use pine, as -it will impart a turpen-
tine taste to the fig. : .:
The.'best and mos.t:.expg- litious.p.an
is to erect a drying;-house, the size ;of
which will depend '.upo the extent of
the orchard. The drying-house de-
scribed in, the May number of the Ru-
ral Carolinian, 1870, .is a good one..
When plank is scarce a house can be
built of logs. One five- 'feet by ten
feet, and, six 'feet high, will, hold a
large quantity of fruit.. In cutting
the logs face.both sides-.of the-ten feet
logs, so as to leave a space of three
inches between, each when they are
.put in place. Let these spaces.begin
two feet six inches froin the bottom.
Make an arched .clay or brick flue
through the house lengthwise, having
it smoke-tight, and the. chimney at
the end, -outside. A thick stove-pipe
can be used for a flue, but the heat
will not be uniform. Put 'slats across
the ends and centre of the house to
support the drying-frames. Make
frames half the width of the house, to
fit the openings in the logs. Across
the bottom of these frames ordrawers
make a lattice of palmetto stems. Up-
on this place the figs, and slip the
drawers in their place; keep up a
moderate fire, and in twenty-four to
thirty-six hours the fruit'will he dry
enough. Be cereful not to have too
great a heat, for it will darken the fig,
give it a syrupy taste, and lessen its
market value. -In building the house
put on a light roof, and daub all .'the
lower cracks with clay.
SSolon Robinson thought Dr,.Ma-
son's process of drying the fig too an-
tiquated. The Alden, process will dry
the fig in four hours.
Mr:. Beach:would rather plant figs
on high ground, than on low, moist

the place,v where we. camped.three
nights, winter before. last; ... "
Federal Point 'is a station here'
several of tihe St.' Johns steamers' stop
to take wood. Mr. Tenney'-alls it
-65 miles from Jacksonv'ille." Th'ere is
a daily mail direct from the North-
98 hours from Lebanon. i There area
few settlers within: convenient dis-
tance, all Northern families. Mr.
Folsom has a good, nicely furnished
boarding house for Northern board-
ers. A half dozen more families would;
make the neighborhood large enough
for a school. -'The ocean steamers call
*whenever flagged, to take fruits,- ber-
ries, or vegetables, for Charleston and
New York. They run twice a week,

Will stop eyen !for a single: box, or

to be opened. We brought home with
.us '.speciminens. of the soil, which we
will be happy to sbow to parties inter-
ested, at our residence. We picked
strawberries and blackberries therei, on
the 26th of March. All' the semi-

there successfully. .We saw an acre

'Federal Point before purchasing. It
will certainly be much pleasanter toi

Mountain boys, than to scatter, and,'
we are confident that Messr's. Tenney
and Folsom will. do the fair 'thing.;
We advise no man to emigrate, unless
his health is such as to render i.t nec.
nessary. Those who have good, farms,
or a good business.in New England,
with social privileges to suit.them, and
good health, will. not act on our ad-
vise, if they sell out and' seek new
homes in Florida, or anywhere else
in the wide world.' Som& men, hOw-
ever, who probably would not survive
these severe winters,I we are confi-
dent, might be well men 'in Florida,
while others who have almost literally
nothing to do here, we are equally
confident will be likely to'get a good
start in the world there much sooner
than here, and with greater comfort.

abundant. Its fruit is always welcome,
can be dried for a sure market at a slight
cost, and by appliances easily at the
command of nearly every one, or, by
simply boiling in syrup can be trans-
formed into a preserve, which in our
opinion, is every whit as good as- the
preserves made from the quince or the
guava.
Few known fruits can so fully be
generally commended for so many- ex-
cellenxcies-, and the standing wonder is
that every one who is the- owner' of a
door-yard, does-not supply himself with
an abundance ofthis desirable fruit.
SThe essay of Mr. Mason is. well worthy
of general attention, of periodical re-
publication and of being cut out and
generally preserved as a valuable fig
manual.

The Safety of the Public Records.
It should be a matter of the deepest
concern to every land-holder in the
county that the County Records, which
furnish the only legal evidence of land
titles, should be so placed and guarded
as to be beyond the reach of any ordinary
accident and certainly saft, from injury
by dampness or from the ordinary dis-
turbance of the elements, :
Yet, within the knowledge of many,
those records, of such paramount conse-
quence to all have now no such'security,
but are stored in a dark damp building,
utterly unfit for any such purpose and
not 0nly dangerous to the preservation
of the records themselves, but also to
the health of those who have them in
charge.A
Why would it not be well for the
Commissioners, to. remove those records
from so unfit a building,, to which the
county has no title, to some light, airy,
safe place, like the banking rooms of
the Freeditan's Bank, for instance,
where at least air and light and security
can be abundantly secured ?
We invite comments from all interest-
ed, as who is not ? in the decision of this
practical question; :

Duval County Fair. r
No one who had the pleasure to see
the very creditable show, not only of
vegetables but of mechanical art as well
as of artistic display, that was made at
Sthe Nassau County Fair recently held at
Fernandina, can have any doubt that, if
they once make up their mind to do so,
the. people of this county can and will
accomplish a work as honorable to them-
selves as it will be useful to the county
and State, :in the holding of a County
Fair for Duval county.
The fair having been decided on, it
only remains for our people to exert
their usual effort and .will, to give it a
commanding success. Whatever Jack-
son. iIle undertakes with a will, is bound
to-sueeeed. '..
-_The profits of the refreshment branch
of the fair will go to St. Luke's Hos-
pital, a most noble charity, and the ef-
fect of the whole will be to stimulate
-home production, home skill and home
pride in both, as well as to prepare the
way for a State Fair next winter that
will do great service to the State andi
attract the attention of the whole coun-
try. to the capacities of our State. We
trust that all will take an individual in-
nterest:in the fair of our own county.

Is Bug Gathering "Hunriting?"
Messrs. Hubbard and Swartz, two
entomologists who have spent the last
four months in gathering choice speci-
mens of entomology, mainly in the In-
dian River region, recently returned and
have departed with collections of a rarity
and beauty which they confidently anti-
cipate will create a sensation.
We had. a pleasant interview with
these gentlemeti, on their passage
through the city, and they report: the
State to be a .remarkably rich field for
entomological research and investiga-
tion. They have been in camp nearly the
whole .four months and have been en-
tirely well. They consider the Indian
River region the healthiest section of
country that either of them have ever
known. -
One of their adventures has a richness
that Seems to challenge the believing
powers of the most credulous, but is al-
together too good "to keep," although
its relation does not tend. to strengthen
general faith in Florida Magistracy.
Messrs. Hubbard and Swartz, one
representing a scientific association in
Dori'oit and the other the Howard Col-
lege Mus.iumm-took a hasty trip to Cedar
Keys, before their final departure, hav-
ing their collections of insects with them


but without a sign of :a fire-arm of any
kind, tnot :even- a pistol. Having com-
pleted their business at Cedar Keys,
they took their baggage to the train and
-secured passage to this city. Pi'esently
the Sheriff of Levy county canie aboard
the train and demanded to see tliheir
"licenses." "For what ?" said they.
;'Why, for hunting in Leiy county and
carrying away the game. contrary to
the law." The Sheriff compelled .them
to leave the train with their baggage
and took them before a wise Justice of
the'Peace who seriously proposed to in-
flict upon them the penalty or compel
them to-take out a license "to hunt and
-carry away the game." The whole day
was spent in a vain enrideavor to con-
vince this modern Eldon that "bugs"
were not "game" within the meaning:of
the statute and finally nothing but the
intervention of the local attorney pre-
veLed thuq furnishing an item for the
Editor's Drawer of Harper's Magazine,
of something more than ordinary value.


S.. Our'Communications.
We commend to the attention of aspir-
ing politicians the two communications
in this issue, of a political character, one
referring to the "third term" and the
other dating from Olustee.
Written by representative colored
men, in different sections of the State,
they throw some light upon the often
disputed capacity of the rank and file of
the Republican party to comprehend the
nature of the issues involved in the poli-
tical discussions of the day.
The views and opinions of such men,
cannot be disregarded with impunity.

The Centennial.
We republish the "Regulations' which
govern all applications for space in the
grand International Exposition ot 1876,
and hope that they will be generally
copied in all the State Press and thus
brought direct to the attention of all our
people. -
The general interest in the Exposition
is increasing, not only in this country
but abroad, and it will furnish an op-
portunity to exhibitt the capacities of
Florida in-certain directions, too yalua-
ble to-be neglected.
In our next isuse we shall indeavor to
give our readers some more definite idea
of the work already accomplisd, and in
contemplation.
In the mean while, we prognosticate
that many, who now are indifferent, will
ere long, be glad to know how to pro-
ceed in securing a chance to do their
part in serving the State and themselves,
and therefore we recommend the cutting
out 7and preservation of the "Regular
tions."
The Silver Spring, Ocala and Gulf
Railway.
We are glad to note the downright
earnestness and' real enthusiasm by
which the men of Marion and Sumter
counties seem actuated in pushing on a
railway enterprise of so great import-
ance to that growing region and indeed
to the general development of the State.
We understand that the subscriptions
to its stock, in the immediate vicinity of
the road, already exceed the anticipa-
tions indulged by its friends and origi-
nators, and that the construction of the
railway is rapidly assuming the shape
of a certainty in the near future.
We congratulate the promoters of the
enterprise upon the degree of success
already attained, and trust they will not
permit any slight discouragement to
dampen their zeal.
Some men must have their jokes, upon
slight provocation, sometimes, but we
assure our Ocala Railway friends, that
the business men of this city are too
wide awake to their own interests to
permit them to be indifferent to the suc-
cess of a project in which they are inter-
ested equally with the originators them-
selves.
We arc informed that a book for sub-
scription will soon be opened here and
when it arrives we will have more to
say about the matter.

The Good Work Actually Began.
The cotton Factory in Leon County is
no longer a mere dream, and we gladly
extract the following from the Sentinel:
WORK COMMENCED.-So many enter-
prises of public moment have been
spoken of as on the eve of accomplish-
ment in and around this city, and yet
never have amounted to anything, that
our readers will be glad to learn that
work has commenced on the cotton fac-
tory, which we referred to at length
some time ago. There has been some
difficulty in obtaining the brick, but this
material is now commencing to arrive
in large quantities, and the building
will go up apace. The foundations
have been excavated, the lumber is be-
ing laid down on the site, large heaps of
sand, for the purpose of making morter,
are rising all around, a considerable
force of men is to be seen at work, and
everything in the vicinity indicates that
the work of construction is to be pushed
forward energetically to completion.
We congratulate our citizens in that
their hopes are not this time doomed to
disappointment, and that the project is
in the, hands of men who mean business.

ESCAMBIA COUNTY.


The Express reports an intense excite-
ment prevailing in Pensacola, on ac-
count of an attempt of the Stevedores'
Association to control the employment
of laborers in the loading dnd unloading
of ships'in the -harbor. On Friday the
4th inst., a mob of Stevedores inflicted
bodily punishment, by flogging in the
public -square and in broad day-light, on
one white and four colored laborers, for
non-obedience to their rules.
The violence was temporarily calmed
down, but seemed likely to break out
at any moment again. The Express
says that not an effort was made by the
Conservative City Government to arrest
or punish the perpetrators of the outrage.

NEW HiIAMPSHIRE.
The excitement in New Hampshire
seems to have quited down in a great
measure. The Republicans having a
majority on. joint-ballot have elected
Person Cheney Governor and some
others of the State Officers. But the
people of that state fully concur in the
opinion freely expressed even by the
Tribune and Philadelphia Times and
others of the independent press, that the
gain of the control of the Senate by
trick and a preversion of the judiciary
control, will prove 'the least profitable
possible to the Democracy.
SOME WHAT SIGNI FICANT.
The rejection of the following resolu-
tion in the Missouri Constitutional Con-
vention on Thurday last, by a vote of 48
to 9 indicates that in Missouri the doc-
trine of State sovereignty still obtains to
a certain extent:
Resolved, That Missouri is a free and
independent State, and an equal mem-
ber with her sister States of the Ameri-
can Union; and neither the State nor
the Federal Government have the con-
stitutional right to disolve said Union,
or to impair said compact.
General Rutherford B. Hayes, who
has been nominated for Governor by the
Ohio Republicans, has already served
two terms in that office. Hle was first
elected in 1867, when Senator Allen G.
Thurman ran against him, and again in
1869, by a largely increased majority,
when the Hon. George H. Pendleton-
was the Democratic nominee. He was
elected to Congress in 1864 and ran
again for the same office in 1872, but
was beaten by Mr. H. B. Banning
It is sad to see the distress of the
Democratic papers because the Republi-
cans of Ohio did not nominate Judge
Taft for Governor. They are sure he
was the strongest candidate. The Re-
publicans themselves were very clear
that Governor Hayes combined more
elements of strength than any other man,
but the Democrats are greatly worried
lest it was a fatal mistake. It is beauti-
ful and touching to see their deep inter-
est in Republican success.-Washington
Chronicle.

ABOUT RUNNING NEWSPAPERS.
Rowell's forthcoming "Newspaper
Directory" shows the failure of over
1000 newspapers in this country during
the past year, the loss to publishers,
-subscribers and advertisers amounting
to over $8,000,000, the Republic, of New
York, alone being half a million. Among
those who went into the newspaper busi-
ness and lost heavily thereby were 275
merchants and adventurers, 815 school
teachers, 57 lawyers, 4 blacksmiths, 33
plasterers, 10 farmers, 200 fanatics of
various classes afflicted with literary
tension, 400 ambitious but visionary
young men who drew apon their fathers
and thus suddenly exhausted large mar-
gins of the paternal capital, and 6 lot-
tery men.
GADSDEN COUNTY.
The recent rains that have prevailed
throughout our county have much benefitted
the crops. The oat crop which as much lar-"
ger and finer than it has been for many year-
is gathered and the other crops are perhaps as
flourishing and growing as rapidly as the lands
without more fertilization are capable of pro-
ducing. Thus far we are happy to say Provi-
dence has smiled upon us, and we confidently
look forward to a large gathering in the fall.
The colored people are working well, and
almost perfect health, prevails throughout our

PILOTS AND PILOTAGE.-His Honor
Judge Locke, of this Court, delivered
an oral opinion in the case of John H:
Geiger, Jr., vs, the Br. schooner "Bob,"
on the 26th inst. When giving a decree
in that case, the principal points of in-
terest decided, were that in order to en-
title-a :pilot to the; bonus of full pilotage
from-any vessel arriving in this port,
where his services are not accepted, it
must not only appear that he had spoken
the vessel when entering the port, but
had spoken her "seasonably" or when-
ever the first danger or intricacies of
navigation were encountered, which
were ordinarily at the bar, but where a
ship's master had .voluntarily come over
the bar, or through the reef into an
open channel, at a distance from the
port, and beyond pilotage ground, the
absence'ot a pilot at that point was no
defense to a claim for pilotage, provid-
ing a pilot was in readiness and spoke
said vessel prior to her arrival at. the
first intricacies of navigation after- her
arrival upon pilotage ground; although,
such first dangerous point might be at
the -vtvy-mouttof the harbor, and the
vessel was not spoken until her near ap-
proach to such entrance.
That the law contemplates in order to
entitle pilots to outward pilotage with-
out performing services, a speaking of
the vessel while .leaving port and after
the time for the employment of a pilot
has arrived, and not while being at a
wharf, and such a speaking would not
justify a judgment for outward pilotage.
In this case the "Bob" crossed the reef
some distance from Key West, was
coming down in Hog Channel and was
not spoken 'until nearly to Whitehead
spit buoy. Inward pilotage was de-
creed but outward refused.--Key West
Dispatch.

Hernandez, and others, for the indefatigable
pursuit and apprehension of this red-handed
villain.
The murderer is a short, thick set man, of
between 35 and 40 years of age; sandy hair
and military cut whiskers, blue eyes, and has
a deep scar over the right eye. He gives his
name as Newton from Illinois. Hfs counten-
ance expresses determination and brutality.

Food for Reflection.
OLUSrEE, FLA., June 8, 1875.
Editor New South:-After reading the
communication from your correspond-
ent "Modoc Chief," one is led to reflect
on the position of the colored man in the
politics of Florida. He seems-if what
Modoc says is true-to hold an anomal-
ous position; to be the voter and the
bone and sinew of the Republican party,
at least. Quite a number of the race
whom I have met appear to compare
favorably with any other in intelligence
and education, and have ever been faith-
ful to the party; and if I am correctly
informed, they largely compose the
conventions of that party, and choose
the elective officers .from the whites,
then enter earnestly into the canvass,
and elect their men to positions of trust
and profit and after this is done subside
into oblivion until again wanted by the
office-holding class. Of this class, I
learn that the- Northern men and the
Southern Unionist are the principal em-
bodiment, and their numbers are almost
insignificant for any practical party pur-
poses, (if we except holding the offices.)
Now, according to "Modoc Chief,"
the Governor, after being elected, has
the appointing of all the Executive, Ju-
dicial and Administrative officers in the
State, and invariably makes these ap-
pointments from this hand-full or goes
entirely outside among the doubtful to
secure officers to carry out the principles
laid down by the conventions and af-
firmed by the voters, completely ignor-
ing any intelligence, ability or qualifica-
tions which may be found among the
masses of his own, or the party which
elected him. I must confess astonish-
ment at this. Is it that the colored men
have no ambition ? or do they prefer to
be "the hewers of wood or drawers of
water." If so, they do materially differ
from the Caucasian in more respects than
The color of skin
And shape of shin.
But I can hardly believe this to be so,
although it is equally as hard to believe
in the fece of the elaborate plat-
forms of the party, and the generosity of
the conventions, and the protestations
of candidates themselves, that after elec-
tions the bone and sinew is ignored and
forgotten, or that none among them can
be found competent or sufficiently trust-
worthy to fill any of the positions of
honor and trust. If this is so, it is ex-
ceedingly painful to one who has labored
for years to assist in the elevation of
this race, to find any State in the Union
controlled by Republicans, in which the
colored men are so grossly ignorant and
incompetent that men of doubtful politi-
cal principles have to be brought in to
foster the well settled principles of the
party. Nor will I believe such to be the
fact, for whilst traveling through the
State I have met and conversed with
many colored men who would grace
any position so far as intelligence was
needed, and who seemed to have no
more expectations of holding any offi-
cial positions than they would in New
York or Connecticut, where the race is
but "a drop in the bucket."
I would venture to say in view of the
facts, that no class of people in this
country where every interest depended
so largely on the success of a party,
would confide those Jnterests so im
plicitly to a race having so little inter-
est in common with themselves as the
colored men of Florida. Hence the
thinking men, with "Modoc Chief," are
forced to believe that the grossest per-
fidy is practiced toward them in high
places by those who owe their all to them,
and the Executive and his advisers who
would stoop to such a want of good
faith and disregard for principle, would
ruin the prospects of his party by mak-


ing it unworthy to be trusted with the
destinies of the State, and would deserve
the condemnation of honest men of all
races, parties, or nationalities.

umphantly vindicated themselves.
President Grant has the confidence


of


the people and as "the question of the
number of terms allowed to any one
Executive can only come up fairly in
the shape of a proposition to amend the
Constitution, in a shape in which all
political parties can participate, fixing
the length of time or number of terms
for which any one person shall be eligi-
ble, for the office of President," the
leaders who have anticipated the peo-
ple, ought to have attended to this mat-
ter, but as they have failed, the people will
hail with sincere declaim, the hero who
"never sought the office for a second,
nor even for a first nomination," and
carry himn gloriously through the to be
most memorable political event since
the declaration 9f independence.
The Republican party is in a desperate
strait and none of the aspirants, from
Blaine and Wilson to Norton and Came-
ron, can rally the people to their stand-
ard. Grant's positiveness, his unflinch-
ing adherence to Republican principles,
have endeared him to the masses, and
to-day, his very name, is like the trum-
pet-call to success. With any other
candidate the Republican party is
doomed to defeat. "
If the indestructible principles which
bore aloft the party are still dear to
Republicans, they will unhesitatingly
smoother all piques, concentrate their
forces and put forth their severest exer-
tions to once more crush out the hopes
of the Democratic party.. DEL.

The Centennial.
The Centennial Commission have is-
sued their General Regulations for the
government of exhibitors, and have
fixed upon the day of opening of the
great exposition. We give below the
regulations, and shall from time to time
give all the information that may come
to hand likely to interest our citizens.
The exhibition will open on the 10th
day of May, 1876, and continue until the
10th day of November following:
The ten departments of the classifica-
tion which will determine the relative
location of articles in the Exhibition,-
except in such collective exhibitions as
PUay receive special sanction,-and also
the arrangement of names in the Cata-
logue, are as follows:
1. Raw materials--mineral, vegeta-
ble and animal.
2. Materials and manufactures used
for food, or in the arts, the result of ex-
tractive or combining processes.
3. Textile and felted fabrics; apparel,
costumes, and ornaments for the person.
4. Furniture and manufactures of
general use in construction and in dwel-
lings.
5. Tools, implements, machines and
processes.
6. Motors and transportation.
7. Apparatus and methods for the in-
crease and diffusion of knowledge.
8. Engineering, public works, archi-
tecture, etc.
9. Plastic and graphic arts.
10. Objects illustrating efforts for the
improvement of the physical, intellec-
tual and moral condition of man.
Applications, for space and negotia-
tions relative thereto should be addressed
to the Director-General, International
Exhibition, Philadelphia, Pa.
Exhibitors will not be charged for
space.
A limited quantity of steam and water-
power will be supplied gratuitously.
The quantity of each will be settled
definitely at the time of the allottments
of space. Any power required by the
exhibitor in excess of that allowed will
be furnished by the Commission at a
fixed price. Demands'for- excess of
Power must also be settled at the time of
the allotment of space. .
Exhibitors must provide, at their own
cost, all show cases, shelving, counters,
fittings, etc., which the- may require;
and all countershafts,with their pulleys,
belting, etc., for the transmission of
power from the main shafts in the Ma-
chinery Hall. All arrangements of arti-
cles and decorations must be in con-
formity with the general plan adopted
by the Director-General.
Special constructions of any kind,
whether in the buildings or grounds,
can only be made upon the written ap-
proval of the Director-General.
The Commission will take precautions
for the safe preservation of all objects in
the Exhibition; but it will in no way be
responsible for damage or loss of any
kind, or for accidents by fire or other-
wise, however originating.
Favorable facilities will be arranged
by which exhibitors may insure their
own goods.
Exhibitors may employ watchmen of
their own choice to guard their goods
during the hours the Exhibition is open
to the public. Appointments of-such

The Third Term Question.
Editor New South:-Neither the Re-
publican Convention of Pennsylvania
nor that of Ohio, manipulated as they
were by disaffected leaders, represented
the will of the people of those States.
Their pronunciamentos against the third
term, is only a manifestation of the
deep feeling of those who, unable to
control the patronage, because of the
unyielding watchfulness of the Presi-
dent, are seeking to hoodwink the honest
voters, in order to pave the way for
some man who can easily be -won over,
or awed by the threats of those patron-
age-dispensing politicians. When the
time comes for the election of delegates
to the National Republican Convention,
the people will see to it that none are
elected who will misrepresent them:
They will thunder back to those leaders
this response: "we will invest with
sovereign authority the man we think
best calculated to promote the common
interest of our common country and
protect the lives, liberties and property
of the meanest citizen, regardless of
any written law, i4ithout dictatiou from
any quarter." In thus refusing obe-
dience to those magnates who arrogate
to themselves the power to speak for
them, the people will have rebuked the
insolence that insulted them and tri-i

, CITY NEWS.


If one wishes to see, a commendable dis-
play of energy and -business activity, let him
visit the mills and lumber yards of this city.
There, neither the dull'seaon nor the intensely,
warm weather (so #t to.Aeriously check other


industrial pursuits,) seem to produce: any
abatement in the vigor so characteristic at
these hives -bfindustry.- .. :
The Alligator Mills, two in number, at
present employ 75 hands and cut 36,000ooo feet
of lumber pqer .day. Average running time
It hours." Most of this lumber abouPone-half
of which is dressed at the planing mill, is sold
'1n this city. -: c- -
The Jacksonville Planing and Saw Mills,
Alsop & Clark proprietors, employ 40 hands
and cut. qout the same quantity of lumber
per day. These mills also 'have. a large local
,and- ;riv.er-- irade. -.Assuming- that '. the other
two mills, which are of about the -sa:ne capac-
ity, employ a like number of men and produce
Sthe same quantity of lumber, the four mills in
our, city furnish employment to between, two
and three hundred men, and manufacture in
the:. garegate about 120.000 'feet of lumber
.peir day requiring about 120 logs per day to
each mill, or for the four mills 480 logs. The
cutting, hauling and-rafting of the logs also
gives employment to a large number of men,
and a gentleman who .has had .over twenty
years experience in the mill business, informs
;ius that a mill itl) suficient'capacity for cutting
-*3o,0oo'feet of lumber per day, furnishes' em-
Sployment directly' and indirectly, to about one
thousand men. This, of course.-includes all
the work connected with the milling business,
from the choppiug of the tree to the final
deliveryof the lumber,. :

Dramatice Radings and Recitations,
by Mrs. Taylor.
On Thursday evening, June 17th, the pub-
.lic 'ill-have the pleasure of again heating
(jthii gifted lady.,' This is her.last :reading
here for this season, and all who wish to en-
joy the rarest treat eer oflftiei to- Jackson-
ville will avail theni.melveq of this opportunity.
No elocutionist has ever traveled through the
South and given the satisfaction Mrs. Taylor
gives. A carefully selected. programme of
some of the finest pieces in English literature,
humorous and otherwise, will be read, among
them the noble Scotch poem of "Jane Con-
quest," which has never been read before an
American audience. 'This poem received the
medal of the !Buris Tyheside' Club, having
.been:judged: by the leading critics of Europe
to*be the finest ever read before that Society.
It is the story of a noble sacrifice told in a
simple yet pathetic way, which will overpower
the hardest heart. A mother's love is strong,
but a sense of.duty in an -honest heart, is
stronger still. -After-this comes the reward.
Trd the tearful tenderness and the tragic pI-' er
of the piece, Mrs. Taylor lends the power of
her impersonating genius and- it becomes a
: living scene enacted before the spectator's eyes.,
This reading will be the crowning effort of
Mrs. Taylor and should not fail to crowd the
hall.

Duval County Fair. .
The second meeting of the Executive Com-
mittee of the Duval County Agricultural and
Horticultural Society' Fair, was, pursuant to

Direct Communication -by Steam with

Pursuant to a call for a public meeting of
the merchants and busindss.men of Jackson
ville, a large riumber o1 iicr~ihinl., and faim.-
ers assembled at the Ma'sor's office Wednes-
day June 9. Hi, Honor Peier Jines was call-"
ed ,tO the chair, and Hy.; Robinson as Secre-
tary.
Mr. Papin, proprietor of a .line of steam-
,_ ships, explained ,he. object 'of the meeting.
l-Ie proposed to put on a first-class line of
steamers to run between New York and Jack.
sonville, direct once a week. Does-not expect
to run opposition to- any other line,. nor ,the
Fernandina line, but believes there is business
enough in Florida: to- support a direct line
from this place also. He asked the co-opera-
lion of the mercantile community ; while he
anticipates no profits during the dull summer
season, he deems it an appropriate lime to
start, preparatory for the winter trade. The
rates of frieght the same as the Fernandina
line charge., at present. Tge insurance to be
as low as any other line. The steamers to be
i + commanded by experienced seamen, and to
sail promptly on da)s and hours appointe'l. If
s- efficient encouragement is gisen, will build,
next winter, new steamers especially suited


Sfor St. John's bar.
.He stated that he has already engaged the
three-masted iron propeller "Ellen S. Terry,"
dewiing ,I feet of waler, of So0 tons- dead
Sighl, crryiig 3,5,s0 to 4,000o barrels, first-;

makes about 9 knots per hour; is to sail from
New York on the 26th inist., and every other
Saturday thereafter without anystbppages on

ville to New York F20, round trip tickets

reasonable quantity of produce cail accom-
pany their freight on free passage. He has
also engaged another steamer, drawing 10
feet of water, which wHI be put on the line as
soon as possible. For the inmatl...ry step,
however, the "Terry" will leave New .York
and' Jacksonville every alternate Saturday,
making one trip per week. -

uous glance, or take a positive dislike
to tradespeople who pester them after
such a fashion. When reliable, steady,
profitable purchasers wish to buy any-
thing, and do not know exactly where
to go for it, they look into the advertis-
ing columns of some respectable news-
paper, and there they find what they
want. Flaring handbills and circulars
thru-t into their hands on the street,
sent to them through the mails, or
pushed under the doors, receive scarcely
any attention in proportion to what they
cost. It is wise and persistent, news-
paper advertising that paysIand suc-
cessful business houses know it too well
to throw money away in any other style
,of announcing themselves to the public.

A Card,
I would take this my obly means, of thank-
ing my friends for the material expression of
their sympathy so generously tendered ; but
while, it is wholly impossible for me :. accept
their nrofercd ;i,,dne-, I feel none the less
grateful-the assurance of theirconfidence and
esteem raises from me a cloud of despondency
which naturally settles over a sufferer from
such a misfortune. '. H. D. KEELER.

York and Jacksonville, and believing that
such communication would add greatly to the
prosperity of all branches of business in and
throughout our.State, hereby pledge ourselves
unto Peter Papin, proprietor of the New York
and Jacksonville Direct Steamship line, that
we will give his said line our patronage by
shipping all- our. freight by his steamer or
steamers, during the week preceding the
sailing of said ship either from New York or
Jacksonville, that we would otherwise ship by
other steamship lines, at the same rate of
freight the Fernrndina line charge, at present.
On conclusion of Mr. Papin's address Dr.
Baldwin moved the following:
'Resolved, That the pledge read before this
meeting is approved, and that. all parties in-
terested are requested to further the object of
the meeting.

Sudden and Lamentable Death.
The citizens of this community were sadly
pained and shocked yesterday morning by the
announcement of the very sudden and unex-
pected death of Mrs. J. H.:Abbott. She had
attended a meeting of the Eastern Star Chap-
ter on Thursday night, and had returned to
her residence apparently in her usual health.
Some visitors were in the parlor, with whom
she passed an hour or more in social conver-
sation, and after bidding her children "good
night" she proceeded to her bed-room, which
she had just enteredwhen she, fell dead, with-
out any word of complaint. Her death is
attributed to disease of the heart. Mrs. and
-Mr. Abbott hadl resided in our city for the
two last winters, having removed from Mai-
den, Mass., with the intention of making
Jacksonville their permaneift residence. The
-deceased lady was .of the most estimable
character, kind, warm hearted and benevo-
lent, and had won the regard and esteem of a
large circle of friends. She leaves her hus-
band-and-four children, bowed down beneath
a heavy weight of sorrow. We tender to
,them our most sincere sympathies. The
funeral services were held yesterday afternoon
at the Ocean Street- Presbyterian Church.-

Two Kinds of Advertising.
There is.a sensible complaint made by
a correspondent of the- Nw York Times
concerning the nuisance of advertising
by hadbills, posters and circulars, such
as constantly annoy people on the
streets-and in their homes. It is a prac-
tice which will probably continue until
men in business who spend money in
.advertising their wares come to recog-
nize that outlay in this shape very rarely
pays. With a -very large proportion of
buyers such advertisements are generally
wasted and frequently prejudicial. They
either fling them aside with a contempt-

Forty or fifty 6f the orange trees will undoubtedly bear
in the coming season.: The whole place offers the best
chance in the vicinity of Jacksonville for a first-clas

who wish to live in vicinity, as the grounds will easily

a series' of long, hairy,- green- tendrils

cid honeydike fluid, mingled horribly

'C-old Steam as a Motor,;-
":An =inventi6on- ha' i"-ieently been
Patented by-jaPhialdelphia gentleman
Sby which he .claims' to convert water
Without the aid of fire or chemicals
Into a motive power greater than that,
Sof steam, and which jby experiment
Shas, given.i 34 tons pressure to the
s square inch, while a still greater ca-
Spacity is claimed for it -with proper
machinery, -.and is non-explosive.;c By
S'a mechan-ical contrivance Mr-'. Keely,
the inventor, changes water from an
unelastic fluid 'to an elastic flidc,
which can be called by no better
Same than cold steam. In other
w6rds, he obtains from water, without
r using fire or cheriicals, the power
) now obtained from.wiater by fire and
called steam. It is said to be a wonder-
Sful-inventioa-by-those-who -ha-ve seen
it tested, who state: that it accomplish-
es all that is claimed for it by-the in-
yentor, and believe that it is destined
to work a'- great revolution in the
world-a greater revolution than that
made either -by the -cotton gin, the
steam engine or the telegraphl. These
tests have been. made before scientific
experts, who pronounced it practica-
- ble, as indeed the original and often
:repeated. experiments of Mr. Keely
; prove. He first discovered the prin-
ciple he has developed in his motor
while attempting to make a powerful
wheel, and: a few years ago applied
the power to running'stationary en-
gines. To test the power that had
been obtained, Mr. Keely then made
a cylinder of drawn -copper, encased
this in wrought iron, and placed
around'both steel bands close togetih-
er, making a powerful cylinder. The
power was'turned on, and the cylin-
der was torn to pieces in an instant.
Then a three horse power engine was
built, and a fifteen-horse. These en-
gines have- -been run in Philadelphia
every day for a year, it is said, with-
out the use of coal or wood, without
the use of fire, and without the use of
chemicals at a cost of not one cent.
The fifteen-horse power engine has
been running twenty-three' consecu-
tive hours with power manufactured in
less than fifteen minutes. The advant-
'ages claimed for-it over steam, in ad-
ditioni to obviating the'cost of fuel
:and delay of taking it, are thus stated:
'"The smoke stacks of steamboats
will disappear, their boilers taken out,
and the great danger of fire and ex-
plosion will be removedd"
--Its applicability is also said to be
:even greater than that of steam. These
statements come well authenticated,
'anid if correct it may prove to be
a more wonderful discovery than that
of steam, while its application may be
far more universal. -

Q. One mriilioii dollars' worth of coral
was-fished up out of'the depths of- the
Mediterranean by the coral-gatherers
of Naples last year. They work busily
during spring and suminer, and spend
their earnings during -fall and winter
at xhome- in sunbasking,:wine, mac-
carpni and Pulcinella shows.
