, SOUTHERN IMMIGRATION.
Tb Chattanooga Tradesman is
not "far wrong when it gives otter
ance to the following views coa
cerpipg. this most important ques
One of the live" subjects of a
material, as well as social bearing
nor agitated invtbe South is- the
systematic encouragement of immi
gration. . .Several leading citizeus of
thja section some, two months ago
roet- at Montgomery. Ala., and
organized a Southern Immigration
Bureau, the Derations of which are
expected to be of great beneht in
promoting the bringing in of new
and good citizens and additional
capital and enterprise. This, The
Tradesnian thinks, is well in its way.
and as far as it gos, but the section
in our judgment needs something
more, somthing with official back
ing of the State behind it and more
permanent tnan voluntary private
association. Tbere ought to be ar
ranged a perpetual immigration con
greas with branches in every State
west of the Appalachian range and
south ot the Ohio. This body might
cansist of four members selected bv
the governor of eaeh State from
each f the congress districts, and
four from the State at large. Thin
would make the body consist of 304
members, none too large when the
natural number ot absentees should
be deducted, being about one-third
probably one-half, so tbel assembly
would be from 150 "to 200. This
congress should work under general
rules, leaving the branches in the
various States" to look after their
several localties. The branch in
Tennessee would consist of 44 mem
bers, that of Mississippi of 28, Ar-
kansaa 24 and so on.
'If it be objected that'such bodies
forming one great central represen
tative congress and meeting yearly
could not be maintained as a volun
tary affair, we reply by pointing to
the National bcience Association
State and national medical bo
dies, the National Bankers' Asso
ciativa and score more like bodies,
that are sustained by voluntary
effort and have been of great, in
estimable value in their various de
partments of social; scientific, finan
cial and reformatory endeavor.
bureiy ine soutnern people are
sufficiently alive to the vital im
portance of immigration to do as
much lor tnemselyes as the scientists
bankers, prison reformers or doctors
will do to forward improved conai
tions f the unfortunate, to advance
discovery, or improve the methods
of business. One hundred thousand
immigrants brought to the South in
a year, means, if they are the right
Kina, an aaaumn i not lew tnan
$100,000,000 to Southern capital,
anal $200,000,000 yearly addition to
the value of Southern productions.
The congress and its branches wou.d
look to the quality oi immigration
.as well as to mere members. It
would serve as a check on the mak
ing of mere speculuation the basis
"If the South is willing to help
herself in this matter she will be
greatly benefitted in many ways,
ot the least ol which would be in
filling up our vacant places with in
telligant, assinilabie aad desirable
new comers, and unless her people
are Willing to make some organized
popular effort iu that direction,
there will fee maintained the exist
ing -tatua, in which the West and
Northwest get the lion's share and
the - South the few that come by
chance on weir own account. '
; ' A Thorny Path. -' ..
'The editor of the Greet wood (ft
C) Atlas has found the . path of
journalism a thorny one. In the
last issue of the Atlas the following
editorial announcement appeared:
The Atlas' will suspend an issue

pelled to" be on hand the third Mon
day to answer to charges of tres

AMERICAN STaTE NOMENCLA
- X0RE. " -
The proposition now before our
State Legislature lor change the
name ot Charleston, Swain county,
to that of Bryson City is fresh illus
tration of the poverty of invention
or absurdity of application . in - the
use of names for which the English
speaking people are noted. The
obliteration of the name ''Charles.?
tan," is proper; it was "always .with
out meaning or applicatii n, and
there was already a town of that
Dame in almost every State in the
Union. The sabstiiution of the
nime Uryson City, perpetuate g the
Dame ' and the 1 service of an
eminently good and useful citizen
of Swam county, would be appro
priate with the dropping off of the
suffix "city." There is the repeti
tion of the American absurdity, that
incongruity of taste and sense which
appropriates to the hamlet or the
village that which belongs to and
dignifies b metropolis, or a great
aggregation of population. - The
tei m "city" with us has no meaning
because 1 all distinction, between
s?reat and small is eff need. The
French terminal "viile" is equally
unmeaning, lejs ajnbitionally ap
plied, but when translated, mean
ing "city," the absurdity becoming
transparent, and the country is dot
ted with numberless "citLeb" with
BODulations of from fifty to fie
The poverty ol invention is varied
by the adaptation of high sounding
names of celebrated or great cities
to the new towns and villages
springing up every where. London
and Paris, Vienna and Berlin, Rome
Athens and Palmyra are multiplied
a thousand times, but town nom
enclature reached the climax of the
ludicrous in the State of New York.
There some pedant appears to have
been commissioned to christen the
newly laid out towns, and with a
Lemprieie's dictionary in his hands
to haye scattered broadcast the
names ol warrier and statesman poet
and orator with sublime reckless
ness of propriety, and we . meet
Ovid and Manlias, Virgil and Cicero
and Marcellus, and the people of
Ilion, Athens, cVme, ' Syracuse,
Carthage. Palmyra, and most of
the cities of ancient history, not to
speak of those of more modern times,
such as Lyons, Warsaw, Salamanca,
Naples, Smyrna, Potsdam, Liverpool
and so on, ad infinitum. '
And all thiSjWas the more inex
cusable because the Indian tribes of
that State, still lingering or but re
cently extinguished, possessed a
singularly rich and sonorous Ian'
guage; and the fine names retained
in the names of villages or rivers.
such as Niagara, Onondaga, Tona-
wanda, Oneida, Cattaraugus, leave
us to lament the folly which substi
tuted the threadbare nomenclature
of other times and countries for
something destinctly original and
England has the advantage ef
drawing its names of cities and
towns from a very remote part
without knowledge of the origin or
meaning ot the title. When tbe
Briton of modern times is called
upon, like the American, to found
and name p1 aces, towns or cities,
his resources seem meagre enough,
the first idea that strikes him and the
only one. is characteristic loyalty to
the reigning lamily ot Great Britain
or servility to the nobility. Victo
rias in the British possession
throughout the world are common
as Smithvilles in the United States;
and there is a profuse sprinkling of
Alberts, Wellingtons that mark un
mistakably the English footsteps of
discovery or colonization. '
The Spaniard in his nomenclature
has often the happiness of covering
iip under high Bounding names that
which becomes very mean, often
very blasphemous in translation, as
for example, Saogre de Christo, (the
blood of Christ,) as applied to a well
known mountain past, or Cuerna
vaca, a Mexican town. lit jraliy cow's
meat or b ef. .'" -.
On the whole, however, Spanish
names are noble in sound, and often
so in sentiment; for their dignity
contemns that which is mean, their
religious temper finds utterance in
it r . . . .
