jtice the favorabla revival of trade and
agriculture in the Southern States.
From nil sections we continue to redeive
reports that augur, well for a most boun.
titll crop during the com.ing season.
The question of free labor is gradaily
developing itself, without the aid of the

were most de'spondent of the result are
now constrained to state that there it
in tile- land still. The planters in

Fefrs are expressed that. a greater
brealh of land is being planted with
cotton thain is prudeft, so the Western
farmers will have to exert themselves to
fornish the corn that iii some sections
will fall sl4ort of dhe demand.
The negroes are working steadily
and seem contented with th,wir lot. and
,white inmnigrants are commencing. to
flow towards the South, where an am
ple reinuneratioi attends every class of
labor. Of course all is not yet couleurde

rien-ed, and have sown' a greater
breadth of land.'than they can husband
with their limited hands ; the negroes
may prove in some places untrust

make demands that will fall heavily on
the cultivators ; l)t alil. the turning
point will soon be passed, and there will
be thousands of speculat ors ueou ring
the land for c: ttone, who will be willitig
to make good advances on -the crops;
by this means money will soon be plea
tiful, and the. South will then be able to
purchase all the luxuries. of which its
markets are now bereft. LIn the miean.
