The census of 1860 proves that
!assachut.ots produces more than
South Carolina, and proves that she
does so becauso o: her skilled labor
era, hor mancfactures and the com
mtoreo springing from thom.
The cotton crop of South Carolina
for 1860 is stated to have been 33:3,
413 bales. worth about $1.1,000,000.
Ior'corn and ~ peas crop was, al out
1A.000,000 ltshols and her small
grain crop 2,000,000 bushcls, in all
about $20,000,000. Her' rico erop
wits worth $5,000,000,"--and say that
her fodder crop. on item omitted in
the consus, was worth as much Her
manufactures are stated at $G,000,
000. So that the grand total of the
products o'f South Carolina was $50,
Lot us turn now to Mtascbusctta.
The product of her shoe muatr.tfac"t,rie.;
alono reached .l6,000,000, heing
more than three times the value of
the cotton crop of South Carolina.
The product of all her various mann
factutres is stated as $2GG,000,000.
Her fisheries produced over $10,000,
000. Her shipping and colnterco
must have yielded at loast $:25,000,.
000 more-atn grand tot at of $300,000,.
000, from whih deduct the value of
tho[ra w material, $1d0,000,000. \ nd
tho not t pro(i act of Mass:t!itusc tts in
1860 was $160,000,000.
No,, the popialion of Massaobu
setts was not doullo that of South
Carolina by 200,000 people. Ilow

A Columbnia correspond(ent of the

pointed an agent, paid each ia hundrtodl
d,i tars as a beginning fund, andl the
work coummenuced. 'r'ho agent began
by getting first small numbersti'-siX,
eight., ten or a dozen1 at a timHe--and,
fromn nmouth to motfh, brought on a
few more; his number of iummtigrantnr
laborers for' January being just fifty.
And thus the work will go on until
May or thereabouts, when the demandl
for this year wvill slack off' to be renew
oid in the autumn for next year,.
am iniformned by a member of this
New burry assoointion thiat the laborers
already in service do at least fit-y per
Cent. more work than negroos. The
renate is easy. to be seen-the negro
muns give >lace to be Saxon and the
T'uUno. lie must move nearer and
nearor the coast, iere, orn accounlt of
the malaria, the whites will be slowver
to go. Those persons who expect
largely of the negro, tell me that it
stimulates the negro to (10 fifty per
cCllt. more wvork."
