The Coin niittee r4or.ted the foloy
ing preamble and resolutions, (except
the 5th which was submitted by Col.
4hos. W-e Woodward)) aW of-which
were unanimously adopted
.WVualkAs, The present fit4 ofi
labor obeed upon us, involves more se
rious consequenoes'to all- classes of the
community. than any otheri affectipg
as it does the well being, prosperity,
yea, the very life-giving prieiple of
us all; and
WHEREAS, In consideration of the
great changes that -have taken place
in regard to this labor,.and the entire
failure to inake it profitable either to
the laborers .or the . employer under
the various modes and forms nbw in
' . WHEREAs, The present..searcity of
labor in being greatly increased by
injudicious management' and other in
jurious influences all tending to divert
from its legitimate sphere, (Agricul
turp,) profitable and practical use
thereby throwing a large productive
element upon the bounty 'of the gov
ernment as idle consumers for wfhose
support we are to be taxed. - There
fore be it..
Ist. Resolved, That it is recoin
mended that every citizen -Who desireg
the welfare and prosperity of the Dis
trict, and who wishes to promote her
interests, endorse and sutport such
measures as in the judgment of this
meeting seems most expedient.
2d. Reso1ved,..Th4tt it. is the duty,of
every citizen to adopt the most ei'acti

the greatest amount of labor nmay be
given to the soilimnder judicious man
agement and the evilk at-Ning' fron
pauperism and appeals for' Stiite aid
be obviated. 4

of. this meeting the-miost efficient and
only practical mode: for hiring such
laborers ig for fixed- and stated wages
in monty, monthly or annually, pro.
viding also for necessary and comfor
4th. Resoced, That.we regard thd
system of- Tenanting then in their
present demoralized and penyless con
dition as unwise, that it is an evil and
in almost every instance destructive
to the best interests of the country
and is a preat social nuisance.
5th. lesolved, That the renting of
lands to negroes where no white man
is present to direct and personally
superintend, tot only the planting and
working of the-crop, but to detect and
prevent , thefts, and exereise that
wholosonte influence exerted by the
white man over the black, is an alarm
ing and ilereasing evil, one that is
calculated to bring about h state of
things nit-only revolting to our na
tures but 'threaten hig our existence.,

Dr. Wight has publi'shed a, book, 'ip

tion-Madras vs. America," whih gis
circumstantial de ails of the expeiwfents
in cotton culture, made ii Indit, mid
assigning reasons for their failure. The
following are extratIs- from the book :
India, Dr. Wightsays, is not too hot
for our Southern cotton plant, since, in
the Carnatie, it had borne unharnied the
hot winds of May and June. Bu, on
the other hand, it was ascertained t hit
thu cultivaing season in India is too
cold i. e.' the climate -of the Carnatie,
during the cold months, which formed
tihe: cotton-growing seasmi in India, is
aCtually celder than thd summet in Mis
sissippi. In America;, cotton W anitiva

from September to April. t is well
kgtown thtat' the. great amdvetntinge, -for
'cotton growing, our olimati. lias over all
others in t,he- world, is the eq'uable Ieim.
perature during a long r.ummer.
As regards the superIiHty of Ameri
can cott,on to Indian.ADr. Wight./eport
ed that, the American cotton was about
t wenty paer cent. mure.vahtkble than the
Indian, of ntearly as Sd. -ip to 3td.
Again, the American seedl. produced
from 74. to 9 per cetnt, more.cotton wool
than the. Indian seed; ain. other, words.
100 pounds of Amnericaw .eeed yielded
from 284. pounds to 80 pounds of eer
cotton wool, while 100 pounds of Indian
send only ' yielded about 21 pounds of
clear cotton wool.
