amount of gotton there is planted along
both sides of the railroad. I noticed
several fields before we crossed the
State line, and after we entered this
State it was aldaoat a continous cotton

abandoned plantations and an occasional
field of grain. It is all looking finely,
and I was told by several planters that
although most of it was planted late in
the season it was maturing rapidly, and
they anticipated a handsome remunera

negroes, the same as of old, and nearly
every man I conversed with on the .sub.

thousands took it tip earnestly. Accord.

its application. These same, who have
survived th, war, must admit that thes
