degrees; but in its ascent towards the

Good Advice to Cotton Plan
The Financial Chronicle, in its issue
of Saturday last, the 2d inst., gives the
fullowing good advice to cotton planters
ii reference to the planting of the next
We are informed by our correspond
ents in every portion of the cotton grow.
ing States that preparations for the next
crop are being n:ade on an enlarged scale,
and we fear unless this disposition to ex
pand receives vome check, the South will
find that the coming year's work has re
sulted in their growing poorer inxtead of
richer. Of course, it is not desirable,
and in fact it would be a very short
sighted policy to keep the supply of
Amet ican cotton short; but at the same
timie, it is worth while for the planter,
who is giving up everything to cotton,
to consider what sacrifices he is willing
to accept for the purpose of furnishing
the world more than it can consume.
First. It is well to remember that
provisions have been cheaper this year
than they are likely to be anothe twelve
months. Prices for corn and pork have
ruled extremely low. This has been
very favorable to the South, and has ena
bled the planter to ruise the present crop
at a much smaller cost than any crop
since the war. Higher prices to be paid
for supplies is a point worth considering.
Second. From every uide we les-na that
there is to be a lavish use of fertilizers
judiciously used on a limited planting
would most likely result in a gain ; but
from the evidence received on this point
we fear that the experience of 1870 is to
be repeated, resulting in a further in
crease in tLe expense account.
Third. Then again, with a large crop,
the cost of the labor to work it will be
increased. Contracts are at present, we
understand, being nade with the freed
men at about last year's rates, but when
the busy season comes and extra help is
called in, there will be increassd compe
tition and consequently increased wages
to be paid. Here then are three causes
operating to enhance the cost of the pre
sent crop to the planter.
Fourth. On the other hand, suppose a
five million crop is received, what can
we reasonably expect the price will be ?
Planters, we know, are many of them
deceived by the high quotations ruling,
and believe that this year is in that re
spect to repeat itself. The truth, how.
ever, is that consumptidn cannot in one
year be very largely increased; the spin
dies must be made before they can be
run. With a g(o I season, then, for
growing, and with a su,ply fro.n Ame
rica considerably in exc,:ss of any possi
ble consumption, and with other coun
tries, too, growing all they cia, as we
have every reason to believe they will, it
cannot be a very didicult prob!em to de
termine what the average price will be.
And with a rcry poor price for cotton
and all the wheat and corn and provis
ions to buy, in what condition is ano
ther winter likely to leave the planter?
Is there not.enough in these .uggestions
to lead the planter to see the felly of giv
ig up his land to cotton ? Would it not
be wiser to raise all the food you want,
and after that raise all the cotton you
can economically ? No other policy is
safe, and the merchant who makes the
Iadvances should see that it is carried
BR EcoNox;car..-Look most to your
spendings. No matter what comes in, if
more goes out you will always be poor.
The art is not in making money, but in
keeping it ; little expenses, like mice in a
barn, when they are many, make great
waste. HIair by bair beads get bald ;
straw by straw the thatch goes off' the
cottage, and drop by drop the rain comes
in the chamber. A barrel is soon empty
if the tap l-ak'; but a drop in a minute.
When you mean to save, begin with
your mouth; many thieves pass down
the red lane. The ale jug is a great
waste. In all other things keep within
co,npass. Never stretch your legs fur
ther than the blankets will reach, or you
will soon be cold. In clothes, choose
suitable and lasting stuff, and not taw
dry fineries. To be warm is the main
thing; never mind the looks. A fool
may make money, but it needs a wise
man to spend it. Remember it is easier
to build two chimneys than to keep one
going. If you give all to back and board,
there is nothing left for the savings bank.
IFare hard and work hard while you are
young, and you will have a chance to
rest when you are old.
CoNcREssMss's PAY. - Unsuccessful
contestants were paid $113,000 in the
s last Congress, equal at the rate of $5,000
per member, to the payment of twenty
.three more members of the House than
r allowed by law. The only warrant for
payment being this, that "the Senators
Iand Representatives shall receive a com-.
pensation for their services to be ascer
tained by law and paid out of tbe Treas
, iry of the United States," there is no
s 'authority for salaries to men who are
neither Senators nor Representative*
and render no services. The whole sys
tern is wrong. Men who know perfectl.y
well they canr.ot retain or secure seats
contest them as a matter of profit, and
the rascally speculation should be
stopped. He who is not adjudged a
