Happy Race.

--Most of the tobacco factories have closed for the present year, and the negroes in them, after drawing their winter clothing and extra money, have either gone, or are making arrangements to go to the country to visit their friends, and spend the Christmas holidays. However tight the times, and whatever the financial embarrassments of the country, the negro cares nothing, because he has a master to feed, clothe and pay his doctors — and he has holidays sufficiently often and long to make him look forward to each with joyful anxiety, and to enjoy them as they come in his own way.
