In many parts of the 'South, there are now
frmn ten to eleven slaves for one white, still we
never hear of any more difficuftyin 'managing
the negnoos of those neighborhoods, than in
other sections, where the whites are ten to one
of the blacks. On the contrary, it is possible,
that the negoes in such communities are easier
hiad better governed, than. in neighborhoods,
where the whites are so much more numerous,
because there may be less bad example set
less temptation presented and less evil- counsel
given, by low minded white people. Masters
and overseers may be more on their guard too;
whatever the cause, we have the fact. Let us
examine the Census of 1850, with reference
to this point in a few of the States.

__Ten of-these Parishes constitute neighboring
Territory. Upon a number of rice plantations
oni the sea board of Georgia and South Carolina,
negroes are born, live and die without ever seeing
any white person, except the overseer and it may
be the master. Almost the same may be s'aid
or many Iarge cotton and sugar estates in the
vimiley of the Mississippi. Yet we are alarmed
by no insubordination-by no fears of any, ex
cept among the timid, whoseiiaagination creates
what it dreads and discovers ghosts in shadows.
*If the slave trade were re-opened with the aid
of our civilized negroes, we should have but little
trouble in educating AQieans, compared with
that, which our ancestors had. In their time
ainegroes were savage-adults were broght hither
from Africa and hence no wonder tha~t there were
attempted insurrections and bloody Laws to pre
vent or suppress them. Each American negro
could now act as quasi guardian, overseer and
school master, for at least one wijd African. No
more then of the raw-head-iind-bloody-bones,
e died insurrction, if we had five or even ten
a igroes to one white. But when ? tell us when?
shall each white have only one slave ?
a Another objection to revival is that it would
depress the price of cotton by over-production.
I -admit that it might aiid contend that it, or
s imething else, ought to reduce the p resent price
of cotton ; but I combat the idea that it would
reduce the price below a paying point. Five
bhles cotton at ten cents per pound are worth no
more than ten bales, at five cents per pound and
if one negro valued at twelve hundred dollars
can make only five bales,hle is worth no more than
two negroes, each valuied at six hundred dollari,
who can make the tea bales. Or assume the
present price of .cotton at ten .cents per pound,
then double .the usual crop would have to be pro
duiced to lower it to five cents the pound and
assume the present standard price of a negro at
twelve hundred dollars, then there would have
to.be as many more negroes brought into the
country as we now have, to reduce their value
to six hundred dollars each, allowing that we
develope no ius source of industry. This pro
portion of value would still exist, no matter how
much, or how little cotton might bec made or how
few or many negroes introduced. That is if we
were to raise only cotton'. But when cotton
should be depressed below the paying point,
what would prevent us from uudertaking othier
kinds of profitable agriculture, or embarking in
new braches of industry-mining-manufactures
Shipping. The culture of rice, sugar, hemp and
tobacco can profitabl absorb five times the
labor now engagd in thnpursuits, to say noth
in; of the adiional labor needed for rearing
grape, tea, coffee and toical fruits, pr for
woiking Southern mines-uilding and sailing
Sonthmert ships-erecting and manipulating
Raising cotton is notthe only paying business,
we could follow and even now if we had a sur
plus of labor, no. one would grow cotton, when
at had ceased to pa.Suppose we had a surplus
of negro labor in te South. at this time it might

[ of'sugar, because the cultivation of sugar in
Texas, Louisiana and Florida would still pay
handsomely if half a million of barbarous Afri
cans iwere landed in thoseStates to-morrow. And
if such an accession could be made to the labor
there, the people in the remainder of the Union,
would not have to pay ten, or twelve ents per
pound for sugar as they do now, or go without, it.
Sugar although a necessary of life and therefore

The world demands more cotton, because con
suiption has rapidly outstriped production-be
cause in stern reality consumption is largely in
creasing annually, while production remaiv sta
tionary. The general crop of cotton at the South
has not increased a le since the year -1851.2

with the previous uninterrupted and rapid in.

of more land, but for the.want of more lal or.
Yet the- world cries more-more cdtton-aud

Algeria and India to increase their production.

wants more of it, witness the Herculean, yet

find a new spot and new labor with which to
produce. more cotton-Above all,- witness the
upheaving revolt of India, which but tho other

of a hundred millions-it was caused in the niin
by English oporession, seeking to obtain more

dence always interposw to turn the misfortunes
of Encland to our account.
As Tong as the price of cotton remained lou
she could never cope with the Southern States
in its production, although her labor cost noth
ing, while ours was comparatively high. This
was owing somewhat to the inefficiency of the
Mongolean as a laborer and to the Englishman's
lack of skill in the cotton field, but mostly to the
absence of cheap transportation from the interior,
to the sea board. But the moment the increased
demand for cotton appreciated prices so that
abundant and cheap Mangolian labor in the
interior of India, could compete with scarce and
costly African labor in the South, then it was,
that England redoubled her exertions, to prevent
any accessions to our Slave labor, while she
appropriated Coolies and .Africans on every side
and drove her Ryots, with the lash to rebellion, in
the hope of developing and consolidating a cotton
producing interest in India, which should rival
ours. Let us then be thankful and convert thatre
volt which has been a curse to England intoa bles
sing to ourselves, by importing more labor, before
India can become composed, Uut we must not
slumber-The Africans must come quickly-we
may fold our arms but our enemies are using
It would indeed be a delightful state of affairs
for the South if eatt-n could always stand at
p resent prices, or reach yet a higher figure,
But that cannot be. Ours is not the only coun
try which can produce cotton. Ay well read
or traveled man will say, that below a certain
latitude, thig growing of cotton, depends more
upon the kind and system of labor used than
upon the soil. or climate. Cotton grows wild every
where in the tropics. There are sections o
Brazil for example, which produce cotton admi
rably and as Brazil also has the same system 0f
labor as the South it may be safely conjectured
that existing and prospective price. wili ere long
begin to tell upon the exports of cotton from that
land of promise. Brazil once raised a large
quantity of cotton, but she abandoned it gradual
ly, for the more lucrative culture of coffee, which
eing comparatively low in price now, while cot
ton is correspondingly high we may expect her
to return to cotton planting. Indeed the pro
duction of cotton in Birazil sme~re 1851-2 has in
creased ffty-fimur per cent.
Nothing is lacking but a hmalf organizcd systemr
of labor to make Central America perhaps the
very best~eotton producing regioni, on the globe.
That e'ointry is virtually an island inot ulike
Floridas id eciindte. At- a moderate estlimate;
one dozen differrent varieties of cotton, in respect
to either length, strength, color or fineness of
fber flourish there, and upon plants of all sorts
and sizes from the common stalk to a tree as
big as the tallest oak, Somne of these cotton
trees survive for ag~es amid all of them, even thc
small stalks, yield for years a heavy mixed co
of forums, bowls and lint all thme while. Enigland
is aware of this anid hence in part her sleepless
vigilance to preventour colonizitg any portion 01
Central Amnurica, while she holds on to every
foot she can get and has agents zealously at
work attempting to organize a better labor sys
tern there, especially in St. Sa'vador.
A considerable aniount of cotton was formerly
grown in Hayti and other West India Islands
but the raising of it was discontinued for crops
that were more profitable, before the demand for
cotton had become so great and before cottoni
machinery had becn invented so as to make the
raw staple so valuable. Now that the price of
otton s8 so high its production can and probably
will be resumed in those genial Isles-ertainly
in Cuba and Poto Rica. Already it is announ
ed in the papers that Maiichestcr is casting her
eyes towards Cuba for more cotton-is distribu
ting seed, implements, etc., for that purpose and
that the planters of the " ever faithful Isle" are
lending a willing ear so that, as their tobacco land
becomes exhausted of its alimnent for that luxuri
antplant it is turned into cotton fields. Cuba,
be it remembered, has the samnesystemn of Africau
Slavery as ourselves--has cheaper slaves too and
will always have, as long as the slave trade is
closed, because being an island, she cani smug
gle them better than we can, conceding that we
will smuggle also. Nor will cheaper slaves be
her only advantage in the competition which
inevitably awaits the South. She likewise pos
sesses a richer soil and more friendly climate.
Besides most of her tobacco land is even now
exhausted-much of her sugar land is also worn,
but will yet yield cotton and she has millions
acres of fertile wild land still to be opened to
culture. With all these facilities can any one
smile with incredulity, when it is asserted that
the present price of cotton will soon begin to
turn Cuba into a cotton pateh. Or. since Chinia
and Japan have been opened to the commence
of thme world, who is so bold as to guarantee that
the price of cotton will not go even yet higher
And if it does rise higher who can make assur
ance that Eufrope will continue to acquisce in our
monopolizing the production of cotton as we
have hitherto done. SCIPIO.

Mr. Eniron :-Allow me through your columns to

strengthening to the inttelleet, it will serve as the
nucleus ot many a "Le Reunion Sociale," around
which we may cluster over a few cups " of the good
old Falernian," to beguile the tardy hours of the
winter nights, and will enable us to cultivate those
relations, which should prevail in a' community so
small as ours, and where the disciples of Thmemis and
Esculapius are so numerous. Surely our devotion at
the shrine of the respective Deitlies, may not be so en.

degrading to our nature.
Let us form a Chess Club at once, and strive to
emulate the example of him, who by the brilliancy

The Rail Road officials of the South and South
west held a meeting of some importance in Augusta
during the past week. The object was to prom,te a more
perfect concert of action among the various companies,
and to increase the comfort and expedition of travel.
Is is now arranged to give ' through tickets and bag.
gage checks from New Orleans to New York, and
this too by several different bpd routes. We note
the circumstance as evidene or the energy and dis
patch of the day. Thirty years ago, when USer~u
Sau's clumsy old stage-coaches took weeks upon
weeks to accomplish this route with half dosen vic
timized passengers each trip, who would have be
lieved the incident which we here record! In that
day a journey was measured by miles; now we meas
ure by minutes.
It gives us pleasure to say that our pleasant little
village is still progressing slowly but surely in the
march of improvement. Without any pretentious
alarumsa and great swelling words of vanity, we manage
to keep the even tenor of our way after a decent and
respectable style. Not niany new buildings lire going
up, but the old ones are undergoing changes and
modifications in keeping with the times. Paint and
whitowash too are freely used upon the old palings
and fences; and where these are entirely too old,
they are being replaced with a new and solid and or
nate successorship. Some fow of our citizens, It is
true, do net seem to care whether their establishments
are clean or dirty, neat or ugly, black or white. But
these arc scattered exceptions to the rule. It may be
said with safety that a general spirit of fixing-up at
present marks our sequestered town. Now moreover
that we have a new, young and energetic council
just installed, it may be confidently expected (may it
not ?) that our streets and alloys, our highwrays and
byways, will all be mended, and everything else be
done decently and in order.
When It is considel-ed too that we now have so
good a supply of churches and school-housces, of
preachers and teachers, and no tippling shops, and
very few tale-bearers, we think it may be said with
out vanity that Edgefleld for the good year 1859 Is
about the neatest and complotest little p~laee in the I
oountry. Let us try to make it and keep it so, eschew
ing all jealousies and bickerings, all superfluous a
spleen and prejudice, and working 'together harmonl.
onsly for the common happiness and common good.i

It will be observed thi we are cheerfully giving
place to speeches and articles in advocacy of the re
spening of the African Slave Trade. Although op
posed to this measure oni every ground, w'.ether ol
inorality, or of expedienej, or of political wisdom, w4
rat have no desire to stand. In the way of a full discus

the truth will prevail. After our correspondent Scmec
shall have concluded his pieces, it will affi-rd us pleas'
ure to lay other and opposite views before the people.
Sophistries and petitionea priacipii seem thus far t
have marked the arguisent in favor of the trailic;

COLUMBIA AND TMB'UURG RAIL ROAD.
- Now that the charter-of this road is obtained upon
favorable terms, the question arises,-what next? L
the road to be built or is it not? Is It to be a paper
nonenity or an iron reality ?: Is it to be suffered te
die out after a brief embryo existence like most other
roads in which Edgefield has had an interest; or it
it to prove an exception in this respect, and are we al
lst to have a Rit Road" Such questions as these
will, we trust, be met and answered with spirit aud
energy by that portion of our people who are likely
to be benefitted by this enterprize. Were the Dan.
ville connection in North Carolina made out, there
would be but little doubt-left in regard to the speedy
construction of this other connecting link in our own
State; Because, then, -its existence would become a
necessity to the great travulling public of the Union.
But even without the Danville connection, we do no
see why the Columbia and Hamburg link should be
allowed to fall through; for still there would remain
strong grounds for believing that its construction
would result in great good to Columbia, to Hamburg
and Auguita, to the Charlotte Rail Road Company,
and to tho beautiful Ridge country of our own Dis.
trict, not to mention the villages of Edgefield and
Lexington which would- certainly A% beneitted nc
little by the proximity* f such facilities. Even with.
out the Danville connevon then, this now road would
outvie any Other at present established in compoting
for the rush of travel South and North, and would
probably, besides benefiting materially the several
interests abovo indicated, prove to be as good paying
stock, in and of itself, as any in the country.
Again, let this link be built aud we greatl crease
the responsibility of the State of North C tins ix
the matter of the Danville connection; for she would
in that caso be withhok9ng her consent to a work o:
such palpable importande- to the entire South that
she coqldl not stand justified in reason or in right foi
her obstinacy. And she surely would not wish longe:
to refuse that consent. According to the latest a.
count, the vote in her legislature upon this very mat
ter was nearly a tie, and this too with powerful Rail
Road interests combined in opposition to the measure
0o now to building your Hamburg and Columbia
Raod as speedily as podible. Let itbe shown clearl:
that you are in earnest and intend to carry on tb
work manfully; and you at once give to the advo
cates of the Danville copeection in North Carolin
an argument with which they can knock down thi
opposition and insure a certain triumph.
One word about this matter to the people of Edge
field who may come in. for a share of its benefits
Along the probable line of this Rail Road, from Ham
burg, via the Pine Houss and the Ridge, to the boun
dary of our District, lies a country susceptible o
1ig and beautiful culture. Under the stimulus o
Rtail Road facilities, this entire region would certainl:
become one of the most valuable and desirable stript
of territory in this State or in any other State. I
is difficult indeed to estimiate the wealth and comfor
that would speedily ae ue to this favoured sectior
from an enterprise like jhis.- Every acre would bh
