Charles Congdon, Tribune Essays: Leading Articles Contributing to the New York Tribune from 1857 to 1863. (ed. Horace Greeley), Benjamin's Second notice. (search)
m. Everything choice, solid, muscular, fascinating, and even voluptuous, upon the premises of Benjamin Screws. Twice we have given Mr. Screws a notice, and our readers may well be weary of him. But we feel it to be our duty to stand by Screws as a well-marked biographic phenomenon of the century. The great flesh-broker is in trouble, and at such an hour it is not for us to desert him. He is at present in a sore state of litigation, brought on by his efforts to furnish the inhabitants of Louisiana with A1 housemaids and field-hands, and to make everything pleasant in the homes of New Orleans. Screws is now in the noble attitude of a plaintiff. Heretofore we have considered him as a defendant. When last we had occasion to speak well of him, Screws was in that receptacle popularly and in common parlance known as the jug. Screws, in his intense and unwavering exertions to supply everybody with field-hands, house-servants, carpenters and blacksmiths, had sold the boy Toby to Colon

e Congress, on this same specimen day, wasted its precious time in hearing petitions for patents, and in referring them. Now when we consider that discovery and invention are shown by the facts and the figures to be quite out of the Southern line, we cannot but regret to see the energy of the Congress wasted in raising a Patent Committee at all. In 1856--and other years will show a like proportion--South Carolina took out seven letters patent; Georgia, nine; Florida, one; Alabama, eleven; Louisiana, twenty-four; all the Slave States, two hundred and ninety-one against one thousand nine hundred and eighty-two taken out by the Free States. There would seem to be several things making more imperative demands upon the Confederate Congress than a Patent Office. A poor but honest State, struggling with financial difficulties, and striving in good faith to secure a position in the family of nations, is worthy of the respect of all mankind; but a State seeking existence at the cost of a

The Humanities South. arms have it all their own way in the regions of renegade revolt, throughout which the toga is unceremoniously discarded. Even the Rt. Rev. Father in God, Polk, of Louisiana, as our readers already know, has discarded godly lawn for golden lace and the Lives of the Saints for Scott's Tactics. But now sadder news comes to us. The Southern colleges and universities are giving up their erudite ghosts in every direction. Upon the authority of The New Orleans True Witness, a religious sheet, we have to state with pain that Oakland College, a celebrated Haunt of the Muses, is no more — that La Grange College, a renowned Seat of Learning in Tennessee, is also defunct — that Stewart College, an Academic Grove in Tennessee, has also been cut down in the full foliage of its usefulness — that the University of Mississippi, at Oxford, is sitting like a bereaved mother, with nobody at her generous bosom; and that the Centenary College, at Jackson, La., no longer dispe<
