Crime bas been on the gradual increase for six months. This comes of idleness; and idleness comes in a great measure of that abominable idea that a white man cannot be a gentleman and work. He must get money, for that is indis? pensable. But haw? That's it Young men have not the disposition to work, .nd by patient economy secure a basia "for business operations. They must have it now. This suggests ex? pedients. These lead to temptation ; and temptation leads to crime. Hence, we have murders, horse thefts and breaches of trust. Why should a young mau consider it degrading or even undignified to work? President Johnson purchased his present residence in East Ten? nessee with the proceeds of his labor as a tailor. One of the wealthiest bankers in New York commenced the -world as a gardener, selling to the ...

COLUMBI^. Saturday Morning, September 1,1866 State Penitentiary. Several attempts have been made in past years to establish the peni? tentiary system in this State, but from some cause these attempts al? ways failed. Whatever may have been the cause, -whether from preju? dice against such an institution, or the feeling that there was no neces? sity for it-the great change that has taken place in oar institutions, espe? cially in our labor-system, bas turned loose upon society a population that, heretofore, were the subjects of do? mestic or municipal discipline. It is too evident, since this change has been wrought, that misdemeanor and crime have largely increased in every Southern community, and that some proper mode of punishment or prevention ought to be devised and adopted. We know of none better adapted to this purpose, than the es? tablishment of a penitentiary, where confinement and punishment do not deprive the community of the labor of the offender. The Charleston News has...

^POI?TENESS.-A young lady was sweeping the street with a trail two yards long. A youug man stepped upon it, partly tearing it from her waist. She turned shortly upon him and said, "Sir, you are a rowdy." Ho retorted, "Madam, you are a dowdy." "If I was a mau, I would thrash you," said she. "If you were pretty, I would kiss yon," said he. "This is insufferable," said the lady, gathering up her calico ami turning ti way. "That is true," he replied, "whether your remark applies to yourself, your dress or the weather." A member of the Legislature, who indulged in afternoon naps, request? ed his friend to awake him when the Lumber Act came up. He omitted, by forgetfulness, but accidentally gave him a jog as the House was dis? cussing a bill to prevent fraud. Sleepyhead started, rubbed his eyes, aud exclaimed: "Mr. Speaker, a word or two on that bill, for moro than one-half of my constituents get their living in no other way."
