Some of our people seem to fear that tlio system of roadmaking, working and repairing roads pro? posed by the meeting at Atlantic on Saturday last will compel the laying of a heavy tax upon them.?

This sum is believed by tlie Iritids ot the system tobe sufficient to do the work when it shall be done by "paid and intelli genily directed labor."

A Hoy's Opinion of Tofcnceo. Tlio following composition, by a boy of thirteen, drew the first prize at a school examination in Brook? lyn: Tobacco grows something like cabbage, but I never saw none of it boiled, although 1 have eaten boiled cabbage, and vinegar on it, and 1 have heard men say that ci? gars that was given to them on election day, tor nothing, was cab? bage leaves. Tobacco stores are most kept by wooden Injuns, who stand by the door and try to foul little boys by offering I hem a bunch uf cigars, which is glued in the Injun's hand and is made of wood also. Hogs do not like tobacco. Neither do 1 Tobacco was invented by a man named Walter Raleigh. When the people first saw him smoking they thought he was a steam boat, and as they had never seen a steam? boat, they were frightened.
