TUB Btl IS KM SITCAIIO.N.
The cliaring-bousa returns pub
lished in oar telegraphic col am lb this
morning are necessari'lr defective,
owing to the interruption ot ti a aspor
tation from heavy rains in the East
aod elsewhere, but they are amply
Bofthient to chow the general coarse
of trade. Comparing the taUl ex
changes with tho.'etf the correspond
ing week last year, the week ending
February 15tb, showed an increase of
35.6 per cent, or, excluding New York,
of 24 8 per cent We see, therefore,
that, spite ol nnfaroiable wa'her,
the trade of the country is still gaining
upon that ef a week ago. Ik fairing to
cities in which Memphis is interested,
we find that the following cities had.
compared with 188-5, increased clear
ings: b"L Louis to the amount of 18.1
per cent, Cincinnati cf 10.6, New Or
leans of 12 8, Louisville of 3.7, Kansu
City of 2S9 percent.; Memphis, 23,5
per cent, decrease. New Orleans made
favorable show in the ILtt, with a
sain of 12 8 per cent. Money remains
!lomiful and cheap at New
York; borrowers on rail, stock
collateral, get it at 1 J2 per cent. The
Bank of England is gaining money,
and its proportion of reserve to liabil
ities amounts to 47) per cent. ; the dis
count rate remains at 3 per cent. The
New York stock exchange market was

is, f irtma'ly, in favor of the

HOU COTTON M A vi r ati;rb
TbeArrxAL has repeatedly called
Attention to the valuable results that
would be secured to the cotton Rites
if, instenl of exporting our cotton in
the raw state (o Europe, we could ex
port it in a maanfctured or partially
mannfictured sondition. The weight
of a bale of cotton in the condition of
yarn or fabrics is no greater and costs
no more for transportation or hand
ling than as much raw cotton, while
the amount of profit it would bring to
the country would be increased in an
extraordinary degree. Manufacturing
cotton has built up Manchester aad
Oldham, and given prosperity and
wealth to Liverpool. Why ehculd
this country not participate, at least,
in a manufacture that England hns
hasjoaudss important, and for the
possession of which slio is envied by
every country in Europe? We are
gratiflsd to tee that New Orleans,
stimulated by her recent unwel
come cotton experience, is looking tj

Important subject s a possi

preliminary measures to ascertain
whether advanttges of a moet desira

a meeting of the Chamber of Com
merce held in that city last week,
Judge Eorwell offered a resolution,
which was adopted, asking for the ap
pointmentef a committee of three to
inquire: "1. The capacity cf New Or-
tan n In .

of manufacture by converting it into

2. Whether the margin between th
cost oi milling yarns here ajd elae

necessary to organ as such an indue t y

for that of raw cott.n; 3. To corre

upon this subject, aad espeeu'ly
to ascertain whether Eu-oceans
orothei millers could not be iuduced
to plant in New Orleans factories for
the advancement of the raw material

their own shops." This subject is
worth attention in our own city. We
hold in our hands a product that is a

goes on t) say that it has tiken ten
geneia'ions undor most favoiahle cir
cums a nces to make the Northern ne
gro suppose himself superior to his
Sautheru brother, and that the lfct er,
owing to his vastly superior nninbeis
aodtje diflerent circumiitancee, can
not he brought op to the tame plane
in 300 years, if ever. He proceeds to
give various reasons tor his belief.
Among them are tbe f llowins: That
the Southern whites lave neither tbe
means nor the inclination to cultivate
the minds and morals of tbe negro;
mat tue attempt would be nse-
lesr. as they would remain nn.
der the curse of Uod against Ham:
that education aloae will do them
no good and will oidy result in making
unscrupulous leaders of the brighter

inherit the vices of both races, the
growth of anv laigi prooort on cf mu
lattoes, tbe offupriug of brutish whites

would be so much the worse : that they
cherish rece hatred and would be
ready, if able, to light the fires of a
San Doming j holocaust thai they
love whislty and care ncthing fjr
honor, virtue or religion ; that thev
cannot appreciate kindness and a-e
best ruled when treated like dogs.
WHAT SHOL'LP B3 DOSK?
Cd. Duncan then adds: "What
Bhoul 1 the rial stbtjsman do when

ru political etrength? Meet then,
ore than half wav and return to the
only legal s a'ua r.f 1800. when Sou'.h-
ern citimnehip was confined to tbe

Northern men and let the Southern
people reeume their legal rights and
restore the franchise where it belongs
before revolutionary methods struck
down sovereign btates. Reduce the
vote and strength simply to the rep
resent ion of whites. Let the South
voluntarily place it beyond per

Our atat.Mimen Wtiuld wixlii a m.uic
wand. What is the excuse in South-
era localities for unfair elections?
That the negro is a brute unfi ted to
ml a or select the servants of the pact
pie, and If granted, the power would
destroy not only the propeity and
blot out civil:xttioa of communities,
but banish perforce in time the
whites unfortunate enough to the
resident unless massacres ihouldbe
preferred." Mr. Duncan then qnotee
fiom the Rev. J. F. Tucker cf Jajk
son, Mia'., as ii the socisl aud mora!
B'.atus of the Southern negro, which
he pictures as of tho lowest and moet
degraded character; aflirmstbat there
has been no improvement in their
mental and moral condition; that
they will steal from each ether while
at prayers; that in a county iu which
there should have been 1-00 marriage
licenses among the blacks in a
year there were only three; that
the marriage relation is scarce
ly known among them, and
i hat tbey are not true t their
mistress. The Senate then takes np
the successive Northern influences ex
ercised on the negro in tha South by
deaigning men, for political influence
first as Republicans, then as Demo
crat. These men, he asserts, scruple
t nuVhing to retain power, live in
concubinage with rifgresses and open
ly defy the law. After further qnot
ing from the Rev. Mr. Tucker to the
effect that negro parents are willing
purveyors, and that even white men
there nave been known to baiter their
mulatto daughters to white men, Mr.
Duncan adds: "The Mormon ques
