Notes on the South,
The notes of William C. Prime, editor
of the N. Y. Journal of Gommerce, made
during a recent visit to the South and
now published in that paper, one of
which .yo present below, are of peculiar
If an election of any kind were to be
held in the South within the next three
months, there is no reasonable doubt that
three-fourths of the negro vote would be
cast with the Southern white vote. There
is perfect accord between the larger por
tion of the freedmen and the ,chite popu
lation. This is but natural. The negroes
were as ardent enemies of the North as
their masters during the war. They had
no theories to sustain, and no special care
as to what questions were involved in the
contest. They sympathized with the
people who surrounded them; and if the
oath of aliegiance were distinctly under
stood by the freedmen whcn it is adnin
istert d to them, nine-tenths of them
would be unable to say that they hr'i not
lent willing aid and comfort to the rchei
lion. Having stood firmly by their
masters in the trials of the war, they are
still likely to stand by them in all public
questions. It seems to be from a know
ledge and appreciation of these facts, that
' the men who are seeking to use the negro
vote for partisan purposes find it ncees
nary to delude the poor fellows with
promises of a division of the lands among
them. The serious question for t'e freed
men now ought to be how to establish a
regular and permanent system of paid
.labor, and how to fix the rate of payment
so zs to approximate as nearly as may be
to the old rate--namely, a support for
the laborer and his family, in sickness
and health, childhood and old age. Bu.t
the interference of politicians is operating
to prevent the determination of these
questiors, and postpone the day of calm
settling down. It isirn possible to regard
the speech-making missions of Northern
joliticians to the Southern negroes as
anything but injurious to them. It is,
in fact, adding the final blow to their
rain as a people. Unless they settle
down to work, and take the position of
laborers whose labor is necessary, and
must be cherished and cared for, they
$ will rapidly perish. The suffrage is in
danger of proving.the destruction of the
race. It would ordinarily take a genera
tivn to learn the requirements of the new
order of things. Where the interests of
employers are so deeply involved in the
education of the employed, the process
or accommodation to the new systcm
might be much more rapid. But the
temptations to idleness which political
Fpeakers are offering than,rare too strong
to be resisted by their feeble intellects,
:and they are easily led to ruin. They
'wculd go much faster if the promises
were fulfilled. If the lands were divided
.among them,gnd they made to depend
on their own labor for the product of
,their own farms, the race would melt
away in two or three generation.s.
- The Southern negro is very much like
a hot house plant. HIe needs constant
care and advice. Exposure is dangerous.
It is astonishing to observe how many of
them seem to be ill, how few are free from
coughs and indications of disease. They
know nothing about taking care of them
selves. They require advice, watching
and constant help. These are the gene
ral truths, while the exceptions serve by
contrast to make the common rule mor_e
The future, therefore, looks doubtful to
the Southern people. There is reason to
Lear that the negro race will disappear.
Already it is plain that it will not be able
to supply the demands for labor sihich is
sure to be made within a few years. The
indications are that they will diminish
from year to year, while~the demand will
increase in more rapid r-atio. If these
questions were left to the management of
Southern men, they would be considered
with great care, and the utmost attention
'would be paid to the comfort and well
being of the feedmien. The best friends
they have in the world are Southern em
ployers, and their worst enemies are those
who, however honestly, are seekin.g to di
vert their attention from the primary
question of bread, and clothing, and shel
ter, to the work of governing a great
nation. Unfit at present to govern them
selves, they ought to be spared the mise
rable delusion of thinking .they are fit to
make laws for the world or the greatest
nation in it. The direction of their minds
towards such subjects resu!ts in their
abolute destruction, physica! as well as
There are many rer.sons for belie-:ing
that the tendency of things in the South
is toward the breakir:g up of the old sys
temi of large plantations employing many'
hands. These will continue ini some
sections, because no other system c-an be
made to woik successfu!!y. Uut it will
not be strange if the general rule shall
hereafter be more likely at the North,
where the farmer cultivaItes a sman.. farm,
requiring but a few hands. Hero comes
in, however, the question of emigration -
whether it can he turned to the South,
and how. The world's history has shown
that emigration doer, not tend to w~armn
climnates. But here are inducements
such as were never befoie offered. A
land once teeming with abundance, rich
soil which rewards labor te-n-fold, the
prospects of ci-ops which are more valu
able than mines of gold, the certainty
that the soil will yield support to the la
borer and his f:rmily from the time that
the seed grows-these and other reasons
may tempt the emigrant.
But the people of the South must do
something to induce immigration, and
one of the first thmngs necessary is to
persuade their railway companies to es
tablish second-class :hrough rattes of fare
at a low tariff. The pr-esent rates are
only local, and very high. When we
compare the cost of going from New York
to St. Louis or Chicago with the cost of
going as far Sou thwardl we seec the
recasons why the emigrar . cannot be in
duced to try the latter.
There are fine openings for the organ
ization of emigrant companies in the
South. Large tracts of improved land
can be bought at a low figure, and these
lands sold to emigrants in alternate sec
tions would at once become more valu
at4e than in the most prosperous days

pleasant to contemplate. It will be the tri

Altogether Too Ba:1.
Starved to death! IIow appalling! In a
country, too, that oug'ht literally to abound
with "the kindly fruits of the ear:h." The
sunny South, an agricultural community,
with a rich and friendly soil, to starve its
small population ? Fearful fact! No coun
try prospers while its pcople gather food
supplies abroad at prices that keep the
masses perpetually driven to the wall. Eng
land, France and the North prosper becaase
'they raise their own food supplies and divers
sify pursuits. The city of London alone,
contains a population nearly equal to one
third of the entire South--and they are fed.
Through the exac': system of English agri
culture, the farmers of that country gather
an hundred per cent more wyheat from the
acre than we do, at our maximum yield.
A war in Europe between this and fall. is
among the grave probabilities. In that evenc~
cotton may not be worth more than 10c. p
pound, and the men with the biggest corn
crops will be the prosperoas party. Let us
learn a lesson right now. A large provision
crop and a small crop of cotton is the secret
of future prosparity and wealth. Some will
say there wa:; a drouth last year. True; but
eatton was made, and went for provisions.
The man who hauls his cotton to market for
a price scarcely more thtan nominal, and
returns' with cornent from one to two hun
dred per cent over old prices, in our humble
judgment, is very much the loser.

Rev. Jno. Bleckwith of New Orleans,
- Fur the Herald.
MR. .Eiuoa--WLen we have no other,
with whom we may communicate freely, we
may address ourselves to the Editor. We
means the people, and the writer is only
the amenuensis. Several distinguished Po
litical Doctors have favored us with able
disquisitions on the "Situation ;" and each
of them has left such prescriptions, as, he
supposed, the maladies with which the body
politic was afflicted, required. But we con
fess that we have not been able to distin
guish between their diagnostications of the
disease, nor the difference in the effects of
their different prescriptions, when traced to
their ultimate results. One recommends
blistering near sonme vital organ, and ano
ther the extr :itie, and yet another re
commends opiates in great excess, so as to
produce a inacterly inactivity. We would
suggest that blis:ering ointment never fails
to excite the sick man, no matter on what
part of the body. or which of the members
it may be placed, and as the nervous sys
ten seems to be deeply involved in this
case, we think that treatment inadmissible.
And while we believe the sick man should
be kept quiet, we are not sure the opiates
should be so freely administered, as it may
be necessary that the patient should be re
vived to meet some other symptom that may
But we only ni.ke these suggestions, for
we do not know a hether this disease is in
its incipiency of mnalignance or whether it
is an old chronh ie ease, exhibiting new and
more malign :nt symnptoms, superinduced
by its sudden introduction into a warmer
climate, or ?'hethcr the treatment should
be directed to the removal of the cause, or
to the treanetmnat of the symptoms as they
aPpea r. We havc hiieard that one Dr. Vil
son, of some notoiety in the treatment of
lo:thsomne diseases, had volunteered his
great skill in the treatment of this distin
guishc l patient, and that he examined the
siek man and left a prescription to be car
ried out by some of his new office students,
with directions that if the remedy pro
posed, should be too naueating for the
condition of tie patient, that he mnust be
removed to some more salubrious climate.
But we feel assu.e l that the patient is
wholly unable to chan_e his loaulity at
present, for many of his members are :l
ready pa alvzed. Thus we can only call
the attention of our own doctors to the con
dition of the sick man, and invite their
mtcst delibera:e censulta t:on on the c:e.
That per eba::cc something ima:y he Ound
that will prevent both the disso,mion und
the expatrietion of the patient. And we
suggest that thely should d'lilierate well
before nv treatment is deceide on. Let
the symptoms fouh develon lie condition
of the patient, and then determline upon
a course. One of the most distinguished
physicians has diecided thtat it will be more
thtan two mionlths before this disease is fully
developed, and perhaps two moure before it
reaches its crisis. Then lie treatmenit i ayv
be ventured oni with more safety. And
then the pa tierit, his nervous systetm being
exceedingly sensitive, must bie irea ted ,it h
great tenidenetss. In the mean time let all
the nmenmbers of the sick matn be properly ex
ercised, and rendered as !.ealthy- as possible
by proper local treatment, even if the
greatest am ount of fr,ition be necessarily
employed, to impart to them vitality and
strength for the support of the enfeebled
sick Body in the approaching crisis. For
unless the menibers can be kept comoparat
tively healthyi and in proper synmpathy with
the Body, we may not hoae for its restora
tion to health under present circumstances.

THE INJUnCToN Cass.-The States of
Georgia and Mississippi appealed to the Su
preme Court of the U'.ited States to pre
vent the re-construction acts of Congress
from being executeid, alleging thait they
were unconstitutional and destructive to
the rights of these States. These cases
were argtted by the most enminenit counsel,
ini a itho0rough1, able an d effective manlner.
The Cournt, after mature consideration of
the ease, dismissed I oth bills, adjudging
thereby that the reconistruictiottnmeasures
of Congress are No-r unconstitutional. Thte
Mississippi bill was ameicded, however, by
praying that the niilitary authorities might
be prevented from wasting the public pro

,crsons of both sexes, generally between
Lhe ages of fourteen and thirty ; some
ive been known to have it at the age
Symptoms-Absence of mind, giving
thinp wrong names, calling tears nectar,
hnd sighs zephyrs ; gazing on the moon
ind stars ; toothache; bleeling at the
aose ; loss of appetite ; neglect of busi

)lood shot eves, and a constant desire
Effects --A strong headache ; pulse

aess, and all that sort of thing. At times,
Jhe imagination bright, bowers of roses
winged cupias, aid buttered peas, and
then, again, oceans of despair, racks,
tortures and hair- triggeredl pistols.
Cure-Get married. If that don't cure
fou it will at least open your eyes.

The first is a poor fellow, and1 a toler
be poet who wants a wife ; we bI pe lie
may soon be out of hig present Iumery:
I want a wife
To ceee: my life;
I care not what she lacks in beauty,
So I but find
That she is kind,
And kuows and practiecs her duty.
I want a wife
Who through her life
Was never known to be a flirt;
Who'll bring to me
To keep the buttons on a shirt.
If such a one

And don't mind leaving friends behiind her,
With the author of this
She'll find true bliss,
By informing him where he may find her.

Tlic RIGT WI..-Thy South Georgia
(ne of the most successful farmers we
have ever known-a man who could not
write -his own name-made it a rule
from which he never varied to plant one
third of his land in small grain, one third
in Indian corn, and the balance in.cotton.
Many years ago he settled in Wilkes
Conty, of this State. He grubbed for
the money that bought him twentv-fivc
acres of the poorest land in the county.
HP died rich leaving a munificent farm
and numerous slaves. So much for sys
tenatic continued working npon a sensi
ble plan. Everybody admits the plan
sensible one, but few will work upon it.
