Strange Advice.
1 i advised by some not .to plant
cottow'because a heavy tax is now laid
by .the General Government upon
eveTy .pp44 made in the South. This
is very much akin to that advice
which prevailed to sonic extent before
the war, ai to the pdrchasoof goods.
Here is our advice, and to-give it
is just as if we were t6 sit on the
banks of the Niagara and advise the
Waters of'that stream to tumble over
the Falls. But here it is, and not to
give it or rather to advise. against it,
is repeating the command of the fool
ish king, when seated in his throne,
upo% the sea-beach, he commanded the
tides to cease their flow when they
reached hischali--of-state.
To timi merchants-buy where you
can bug the cheapest.
To the planters-plant whatever
will pay most.
To everybody and his son-study
your own interest.
The South,
* The destiny of the South is the fate
of Fairfield District. While we have
no desire to screen the worst as
pects of the current of events as it
flows by, it is advisable that a digni
fled composure characterize us unaer
the really ominous clowd now growing
darker and darker above our-political
horizon. - Let us push oi a; though the
utmost prosper.ity awaited us. It is
worse than childish to fold our arms
- and 'growl over the rudeness "With
wIich we have been treated, or put on
' ong face of mclaIcholy at what
scems to be in store for us. Let us
rather go on just as if there was not a
Rotdical outside of the Chinese wall.

lost as a school of experience..

"I am required to furnish the Gov
ernor of the State, at an early day,
With a list of all.citizens of the Dis

fully request all such to come forward

THE NEXT CONGREss.-We ,hope
the following predietions of the Cin
cinnati Enquir& may prove correct;
btit doubt it:
"A gain of twenty-five members of
Congress will make a majority in the
next House against the Jacobins.
They will be secured., Two will be
gaine,d in Connecticut, seven. or cigiK
in New York, one in New Jersey, six
in Pennsylvania, two or three in Mary
land, Ohio will increase ,ber repre
sentation nine or ten.at lea'st, and In
ditina will add three or four to the
list. In Kentucy, wye sholl gain two
-perhaps three. Illinois is booked
for four or five, Vk iseonsin for two and
Michigan for two. In Missouri, there
will be a' gain of five or six. This
makes forty-five, or twenty more' than.
Is requfired. The House, under this
computation, would stand: Preson
anti-Jacobins, 45; to elect as gains,
45; Southeru cxclulcd members, 50.
Total 140.
"This would leave the Jacobins 101
ineibers, who wouild be in a glorious
minority of .39. A n:ujority against
then in the next House, according 'to
the present aspect of affairs, is-a cer
tainty."

HAVS A Row i Ommo-Tims LATTSR WHIP
PED.-The Cincjnnati. Gazette, a Radical .pa.
per, gives the following account. ofp& distur
bance at Warren, In-Ohio, whit.e Mr. Villani
digham was speaking there some days ngo:
)Vhen the disturbance ceased, Vallandig
ham said, much excited, "I have borne that.
insult and outrage for twenty minutes; I
don't Intend to shbmit to it any longer;"
at the same time shaking his fist in the di
rection of the hooting. "It' there are not
enough democrats in the crowd," he conthi
tied. "to take these men and clean them
out, I will not speak anoihpr word." Cries
of "move them," . "kick them out !" &c.,
arose on all sides, and a general rush was
made for the disturbers ; and for a few min
utes there was sonie shdrp fighting, ending
in a complete route of the soldier boys, as
they proved to be.
Vallandigham resumed, saying lie had
never but twice before advised his friends
to resist molestation of their meetings. lie
said if Deioerats disturbed Republican
meetings they deserted to be. punished on
the spot; and the rule ought to work both
ways.
The boys, it seems, had only retired for a
council of war; for in fift.een minutes they
returned and renewed1 their offensive de
monstrations. *Again they wgre driven
back, and again returned during which ma.
noaurring many were knocked down and
dragged out, in many cases thteir own mt.,n
suffering as badly as the , soldiers, for no
one could tell friAfd from foe. Only one
pistol shot was fired, biy whom is not known.
Fortunately no one Was killed.

as soon -as the- committees have shown
