MR. PRESIDENT.-- Your Committee
to ?liona it was referred to report oe
Labor, beg leave to say that they bare
given the subject all the attentiea its
importance demands, and after taking
into consideration, not o o ly the subject
cf the report itself, hat ail of its con?
nections and bearings, they' propose for
the consideration of the society the mat?
ter arranged tinder its different heads:
as follows, vi? :
1st. FoRiiiGN LABOR. This isa sub?
ject which has engaged the at;ention of
Planters since, the War, and tarions so?
ci ?ties and agencies have been formed
fur the purpose of feeiJi tating the intro?
duction of available Foreign Labor into
our country, bat all scheu.?s of the
j kind seem te have resulted in failure,
aad this- dependent upon several causes
operating together, as vant of capital,
j tlie unsettled condiion of our govern
j ment, the war in Europe, and che quail
ty or value of the labor obtained, &c.,
kc. Your committee have no doubt,
but that the wealth and prosperity of
our country would be enhanced, if our
supply of labor was supplanted by im?
portation ot reliable white labor from
other sources, hut no feasible plan pre.
se nts itself by which it eau be acoora
plisbed soon, and to supply our present
wants. And though deeply impressed
with the importance of the subject, at a j
future day, we are now, to depend upon i
the uncertain, inefficient and unreliable
labor which surrounds us. This to be
made available for oar present purposes,
Your Committee think should engage
the moat serious attention, not only of
our society, but of our community in
general, as it is not oply of the* moat
vital importance to as individually hat
affects the vita! interests of oar common
country in the future. Your committee
are folly impressed with the belief that
our present system of controling and
directing our labor since the war, has io
the maiu been not only rainons to our?
selves but will finally (if not managed
under a different system) involve the
ruin of our country.
Y.>or committee, io their efforts to
analyse our present system of labor and
in searching out the different agencies
which have influenc?e in affecting as,
attribute them to three primary and
principal errors. The first in our system
uf contracting for labor; 2nd. the reut
ing orfarmiog of Ianda; 3rd. the giving
of liena. Your committee are lally im
premed with the conviction that these
subjects should engag? the attention of
our Society, as being of paramount
importance and thu roots ol oar defec?
tive system in using and controlling
h bor. Io relation ta 1st. Contracts :
Your Committee would suggest that ia
their opinion the best mode of contract?
ing, (and far preferable te ?ny fat
adopted) vocld be for wages ia money.
If not attainable in that way for a stip?
ulated portion of thc crop, thc employer
receiving his part oat of the first gath,
ering. It is claimed for this system, 1st.,
a belier eontrol of the labor employed,
and 2nd. mora certainty in getting back
tim capital invented for labor and its
remunera'ion, il any. In the delibera
tion of the Committee .several plans
were suggested which seemed to offer
lera objections than any others, see of
which was wages in money at so soecb
per mooth, if labor could be obtained ia
that way, and which would be preferable,
if not a stipulated agreement between
the employer and employee for a portion
of the crop. The first to furnish (be
working material and support it, giving
j just wages influenced by quality of land,
the kbor, ?c, the employer bating thc
sol* control cf all tba farming opera*
tiena, and reserving for Lis part oat of
the first gatherings af the crop. This
contract would ofter the best means fat
ensuring th? gathering of the crop after
it ia mad?, and whick at tins t?as* is a

A glance at the past exhibits mncb of

But it is with the future, ss living,
active, responsible and intelligent be

maialy to do. And it is with a spirit
of energy and hope, of courage and
determination, founded in faith in the
wisdom and goodness of God, that we
should enter upon the toils, and diffi?
culties, the earea and duties, tho joys
and sorrows of another year. Let
none take counsel of their fears, or
sink into despondency. If obstacles
appear, ss they most and will, more or
less formidable, all aiong-our way, they
must be met with fortitude, with high
I resolve to suimount^them, and with a

THE RICHMOND FIRE,
The F pot* rr oed Hotel la A ?he?-At least
Seven Uves Lo*i -$300.000 Worth ot
The Fire Fiend bas ?gain, swept over
our beautiful city, leafing ia.its trail
haifa block of buildings in the very
heart of the citv a heap of smouldering
ruins, ?while seven or more lives have
been forleited to satisfy its burningrsge.
By this calamity the great Christian
festival has, to the eyes of the people of
Richmond, beeu stripped of half of its
accustomed joys, abd sadness reigns
this morning where so much of mirth
and gaiety was to be anticipated, in view
ol the recurrence of the favorite holiday
of the South.
THE SPOTSWOOD HOTEL ON FI^B*.
On the morning of Christmas flay, at I
about 2 o'clock,Patrick Byrd, ,the night
watchman at the Spotswood Hotel, was
sent by Mr. Knowles, the night clerk,
to call the women, whose duty it is to
scour the Boors. Going up stairs, he
thought he detected the smell of ^moke,
and looking m ure carefully, presently he
saw it curling from a fissure in the
weather boarding of the old wine room,
of late used as a pantry. The alarm was
immediately given, sud Mr. Knowles,
and Dr. Latham, of Lynchburg, running
to the spot, tried to get in the room to j
extinguish thc fire, but found it impos* !
sible to get in without a key. Presently, I
however the door was broken down, aud j
the flames were seen crawling op the
wallsend licking the ceiling with their
fiery tongues. It was too late for
buckets of water, and a messenger was
sect to sound the fire alarm. Mean?
time the cry of -fire was raised in the
house, and the halls of the second floor
were io a lew minutes filled with fright
jeued, stupified, half-clad people, throw
iog open the doors, and otherwise
clearing the path of the fiery ?l?ment.
TUC BUILDING IN FLAMES.
Those who escaped say that in a space
of time almost incredibly short, tho
smoke had filled tho whole house, and
the flames made their way through the
thin wood work partition with fearful
rapidity. The fire department, not.
withstanding the extreme eolr), waa on
the ground with remarkable prompt?
ness, but the wa'cr could not be made
so speedily available. Io less than hali
an hour fire was observed on every one
of the five floors, and the passages were
choking with hot air and almost rmpaP~
j he scene was one of indescribable
terror. Men, women and ehildreu were
ia the horning batldiog, and all who
were awake were striving to get out.
With fire oo every aide and smoke
blinding, suffocating smoke-penetra
ting everywhere, this was no cany task
tn those not thoroughly acquainted with
the landmarks. The screams sod pray
era of th/ panie Strock, terrified the
self possessed ; the weak were either
trampled under toot on tSe narrow s taira
or sank where they stot4 paralysed by
fear, waiting for relief. Fortunately, how
ever, there were thoaewitbin who retain?
ed presence of mind, and those without
bold enough to risk the danger ty save
a human Hrh So far as it is knoitp, %H
? o left their rooms found means to
escape, though with life alone; and
there was no woman's cry for help or
infant's wail ol' terror that did oct bring
s man to the relief. Most of those who
lost their lives were awaked by finding
the flames in their rooms, or remained
.in thc vaia hope o? saving also their
property The floors began ta tell, tad
