An adjourned Convention of Southerners ns.

this is ono of a series of Conventions which Is to
choat tho Soutli out of tho retribution which her
thriftless systom of compulsory labor has brought
upon her. But tho South labors in vnin. Conven

They cannot save her soil from barrenness under
slave culture, nor give oducation and enterprise to
hor uneducated whites, or her opprassod and hostile
slaves. Emancipation, and that alone, will give
agriculture, commcrco, ontcrpriso and prosperity to

This effort to avoid tho coinmerco of Northern

that the prosent rates do not pay expenses. Mr.
Olds noglecU to stato that cords of electioneering

which if paid for, would bring the expeusos of the

We aro glad to hear of tho prosperity of this

Horace Mann since ho caino to Ohio, as the advo"

The Free Domocracy calculated much upon his aid.
And while he was on his way to our State, some
Massachusetts Free Sailors nominated um for
as a candidate fur Governor of Ohio. But his
prospeots in that direction are as yot not yery
promising. We fear his anti-slavory labors have
ended with his political life and prospects. May
he yet disappoint our fears.

to bo left quite out of sight in the discussion,

the tnz, and Northern farmers who reaped the

likely even thnt it would ever have been establish
ed. But the boot unfortunately is on tho other lot;;
it is Southern planters who enjoy tho benefit of the

amor proportion of tho tax. Il is calculated, we
believe, that tho molasses alone, on a sugar plan
tation, pays all cxponsos, leaving tho sugar manu

plantations that profit ranges from fifty to a hun-
drod thousand dollars annually, vt e miner uount
