-**.SATUADAY.- February 9th, .876.

"We are particularly anxiis to
to wake tle remote pIarts of this
State more generally kuown, and
should like to take an excursion
party of editors and reporters to
show them tle inducements that
are offered for immigrants in ox-
treme western Florida. Will the
people there inform us how this
can be managed? No part of
Florida should be neglected. We
are willing to do our part if the
citizens will meet us half way."
Now, Mr. Editor, why not give
Mr. Codrington and his editorial
friends an urgent invitation to
Marion county? What greater
encouragement of their acceptance
is necessary than the assurance
above given; or wlhat could be
done to benefit the county so
greatly at such a small outlay of
time and expense? The paitN
could come by river to Silv-r
Spring. Teams could he provided
to convey them to Ocala, Orange
Lake, and other parts of the coun-
ty. There ar* many citizens who
woulld be glad to entertain them
and show them everything of in-
terest in thia beautiful and fertile
region. At the time of the State
Fair arrangements could be easily
made for such a visit. Will not
some of our leading men see that
this is done? RAMBLER.
PUNTA RAM8A, Feb., 10, 1S76.
To the Editor of the Banner:
DEAR S!R:- -lorida is consider-
ed a st-mi-tropical country. With
regard to thc Northeru p,,rti,.u ot
the lpenite-ula this opinion is per.
fectly correct, but the Southrn ex-
tremity of the mainland (t Fl,,rida,
fio,.m the liltie Miami ou the At-
lantic, ard t lie Ca'O.sahl ctwtt e riv-
er op the Gulf coast, to the m,,st
Southern point, ,with all tlhe is-
lands, or "Ke~s," laying South Jf
these latitudes, the climate, as well
as tile vegetation, have an entirely
typical character. The Calii,,s-"
hatchve river firms the b line b-tween Manatee ard Mo,,roe
counties, and tlhongil it flrwo three
degrees Nor0l of the tr,,pics, the
vegetation, which oinamtnts the
b;,nks 4,f this beautiful river, is al-
t.,gether tropical; and the prox-
imity of the Gulf of Mexico, with
its tepid waier, and the large ex-
panse of the of tile river,
lake Okevcholwe*, The Everglade%.
and the numerous smaller lakes
and ponds, whichi a&e distribut-
ed over tLe surface of Monroe
county, produce a mild and warm
air the whole year round, and i',
fiet, tile climate in Monre county
is, amtl ing tile( winner months, war-
mier, than in the ihlaiid ,,f Cuha,
where the air is eonled by its high-
er elevation over the level of the
sea, and is also cooler and more
pleasant dim ing the summer
months than in Cuba. '
A great numnber of the N01 th-
ern erectors, who reside dtlrinig the
winter months in the '"Italy of
America," have never visited a
troplical country, and I am certain
that everyone ot them is longoing, to
see once in his ]lfellime a primitive
tliopkal f, rest of giant palm trees (
and to behold a coconut-tree in
fult bearing, or, the. still more (
graceful date palm, with its 1
crown of flowers.

Everybody can satisfy that de- s
sire with little expense, and with-
out the danger of c.,ming in tn. t
pleasant contact wilh the blood- t
thirsty Spaniards iu Cuba, or the L
as dangerous Grea.ers in Mexico; -
to hl executed by the former or s
robbed and a-isasinattd by the lat-
ter, as it is often the case with a t
great m',ny ot our countrymen it'
they visit one or theotherof these c
iwo countries. r
There are two roads from the
N,,rth to Mouroe county, the tiol-
ical part of Florida; one by land, c
and the other by water. I will t
lead the visitor on both roads sep- r
erately, as the effect, which is pro- i
dueed at first sight, when reach-
ing the Caloocahatchee river, is a
different, but in both instances i
grand and enchanting. v
We travel first by land, and E
take fur our starting point Ocala, t
in Marion c,,inty, as I have de- t
ascribed, in a former letter, the i
roadi leading from the north to s
Ocala, the Mecca of Florida. At t
Ocala, guides, saddle horses, or
vehicles, can h'e hired at moderate
rates. T1he road from Ocala qfl- a
ows the telegraph wire, and 1eads o
through Sutnerville, and from t
there through a thickly settled r
and well cultivated country to-i
Bartow, the county site, of Polk r
Colitly. .,
Bartow'.is a nicely situated town 8

We enter one of* the b,,ats and
sail upillche river; on bothl binks
we will find a few new clparing.p
inhabited by intelligent and indus-
irious seftlvrs. Above these set-
tlements the river narrows. and
the juingleg are interrulted by
perpendicullar bluhffs of the height

Immigration for this State, agent for
the sale of, all State lands lying east
of range fifteen, east. No more capa-
ble men could have been selected for
this business. Mr. Williams is an old
surveyor and has an accurate knowl-
edge of almost every foot of land lying
in East and South Florida. Mr. Cor-
ley is also perfectly familiar with these
lands, having been State Land Register
for a number of years.
Persons wishing to buy or enter

Rambler, who is thoroughly it, earn-
est in bringingg Marion. county to the
front, whereait properly belongs, makes
a-good suggestion ih- i~ day's paper,
which we hope will meet t~e.approval
of our citizens. Mr. Codri .ton, and
his editoi"a -friends, are doing a great
deal towards bringing other sections of
the State, into prominent notice, and
they, are equally willing to spread our
,beautiful section open to the world
through the columns of the papers they
represent if ouri people will but meet
them half way. 7 We hope-our landed
citizens will take some interest in the
matter andc, inaugurate some steps Ito
carry Rambler's suggestions into exe-
cution. Florida is the 'land of prorh-
ise" towards wiich all eyes are now
directed, and our county, if she would
reap-ny of the fruits that are sure to ac.
erue, must strike while the iron is hot
Iand the fire blazing. r. Codringlon

is a whole-souled citizen, and his love
of Florida is hemmed in by no county
lines or confined to no particular local-
ity,, and- lie is bent on bringing the 'en-
tire State before the notice of the world
as far as he is able. Our citizens must
lend a helping hand in this work. 'Our

The Dramatic Entertainment
The promised entertainment of the
Ocala Amateur Troupe came ,ff on
last Tuesday night, and as far as we
have heard an expression of opinion,'
it was as well if not better rendered,
all things considered, than any local
performance we have had on previous
,occasions. We think the company were,
unfortunate in the selection of the play.
If a shorter and more cheerful one had
been strikes us it would
have- been more satisfactory to both
audience and actors ; but all must ad-
mit that a great deal of talent was shown
in its.performance, and considering that
the company rehearsed it but a few
times, they did exceedingly well. The
character of Ingomar was well sustain-
ed by'Mr. Simon Benjamin, 'who at
times caught the spirit of the play in a
remarkable *degree. Parthenia was
cleverly rendered by Mrs. Crowson ;
Polydor by Mr. C. A. Crowson; Myron
by Mr. Pooser, and several ,esser char-
acters by Mesers. Paul Jones, Jimmy
Jones, Johny Helvenston and Willie
After the play of Ingomar was over
i Willie Fletcher entertained the audience
i by singing a comic song, and Master
Harry Goss won much applause in the
recitalion of "Little Joe," one of Bret
Hart's productions.
The after piece, "Misfortune," was
engaged in by Mrs. Crowson, as Betsy;
Miss Emmeline Robinson,: as Seraphi-

The Death Bed of Andrew Johnson, Rob't
E. Lee and the Lost Cause,
Three Magnificent Engravings just
published on heavy plate paper, 14x18.
They touchingly portray the last mo-
ments of the great Statesman and Soldier
with families and friends sorrowfully
grouped around them It is a gem of
art, beautiful in design, and should hang
in every house and cottage in the land.
The Lost Cause represents a Confederate
soldier after the war returning to his
home, which he finds lonely and desolate,
and telling a sad tale of the miseries of
war, and, two graves with rude crosses
oh which s6me fHiendly hand has hung a
garland -to the right,, the calm river and
rising moon indicate peace and rest.

A destructive fire occurred at Ninety-
Six. S. C., December 21st, by which, four
stores valued at $20.000 were burned.
The further spr,:ad of the conflagration,
with probable destruction of the whole
town and loss of several hundred thou-
sand dollars worth of property, and
many lives, was prevented by the arrival
of a Great American Fire Extinguisher,
an Agent happening to come in town at
the nick of time. For full particulars,
see the Abbevill'e Medium and Newberry
Herald of the following week.
Mr. P. P. Toale of Charleston, S. C., is
the General Southern Agent for the Great
American Fire Extinguisher, and will
