Labor for tho South.
We 1o not know what to say on thi
subject. 'l'he labor of froodmon, a
the close of operations for the seasoi
has proved to be an utter failure. Th,
Cxperiment of int roducing white labo
.from 1he North is nearly as bad. if no
worse ;so that the Southern plantoi
nist.be at his wit's end to solve thi
problem of labor- .
At. Beach Island, in this State, tho)
[have an agricultural club, and tho in,
formation there (eveloped shows that
thu great q uCstivn of Southern laboi
has yet to ho solved. Mr. ,Jonathar
1. Miller made i statomont to th(
society, wlieh would induco the lan.
ter to bolieve that foreign white laboi
eannot.be relied upon. Mr. Mille
says :
"At the commencement of the year,
I employed as inny negroes as I
thought noieessnry for the cultivation
of n i of
ofmy lads, but in consequence of a
portion of them being dissatisfied, dis.
misscd them, thinking I could procure
others in their placos. In this I was
disappointed, and after repeated of
forts to obtain other negrocs, and fail
ing, off'ering to pay themi at the rate
of $12.50 per month, I was induced to
try white ' labor. Consequently, I
wrote to my- brother-in-law, Kaj. N.
NW. Smith, in New York, to solid- me
fifteen white laborers: which ho did
thirton men and two womnen. They
arrived at Augusta on the 15th of
March, I paying their polssage to Sa
Vanifth by steamer, and thence by
railroad to Augusta%, at $25 dollars
each, and was to pay thomn at the ra
t-for mn, $12.50 per month, and for
the women, $8. At the expiration of
the first month, their wages wore paid
them, and they insisted that their
wages should be raised, for men, $15,
and for wcmou, $10 ; notwithstanding
that, they had made a contract for the
first mentioned amount, before lcav
ing New York. I agrood todoso, 'as
ty worked very faithfully.. Their
rations nero corn bread and bacon; as
tihey were not accustomed to thecorn, I
. e. thom occastonally rye and wheat
br) d 14RI--.-3il ;J e &sh beefViWj6, oet
bles, slch as peas, turnips, sweet and
Ii-i potatoes, .as soon as I raised
then i. I also furnished them coffee,
like~iiso their bedding, they furnish
ing their own clothing and paying
itheir doctor's bill. At the end of the
second month, several of the best
w(orkers amongst them insisted on
their wages being increased still high
er, two of them $17 per month, and
one who nicted( as a gardener to $25.
1 put uI> the wages of the two to $17,
as they wero 'the best hands, and the
gardener I d-ismise;d ; several of the
o'ie left ; one of the women I made
ciok and wash for lie men."
Mr. Miller goes on t6 say that the
plan of introducing foreign white la
bor through the agencies of New York
emigration cdmpanies is all a hitunbug.
These socigties:, when they got orders
for laborcW, send out runnors and
gather up the dregs of the city of Now
York, and all such as they can pick up,
and make from three to . ten dollars
por bvead for each thand furnished.
They chargd both parties, and em,
ployer and cnmployco-tilo fr *mor for
hiring him laborers, and the latter for
getting situations. They bind both
parties in contracts, which might do
in tho North, but as we have no laws
to enforce such contracts-in the South,
aid aa thcre is,no honoir in such char
noters, Mr. Miller looks upon these
companies and most of their laborers
as more swin'dlr-the sole objoet be
ing to make all the mnoney. they can
out of the South-the sodieties by futr
nishing them, and tihe laborers Iey ob
