The cry of the Mobilo Tri'une for
Chinamon, and of General Forrest
for negroes, is a;togedher in the inter
est of a larger supply of cotton for
the world, and a smaller supply of the
comforts of life for the people of the
South. It would, if successful, lower
the standard of comfort among the
luboriug population of the South,
which the experience of Ireland
proves is a great nationil onlamity.

laborers as easily contented as brutes,

our only national consolation. And
shall we ourselves out it up by the
roots, and forever pursue such a poli

neer of the levees on the Mississippi,
wore my companions part of the way
from New Orleans. As we passed
through beautiful tracts of o"untry
lying waste, I asked General Forrest
how it could be repopulated.
"With negroes," was his reply ;
"they are the best laborers we ever
had in the South. Tbo,e among us
behaved during the war in such a
manner that I shall always- respect
them for it, and I would not have one
of mine, nor have thorn enslaved if I
could. My house servants," continu

"But how, General," continued I,
"are you to repopulate with negroes ?"
"Get them from Africa," was his
startling reply ; "they'l1 improve

Direotions for Using B,hodes' Super
Rhodes' Super-Phosphate can be
used either broadcast or in the hill,
or with the seed in tbe drill-in no
instance is it to be ploughed under a
sod, nor bedded upon.
In case of re-planting or backward
growth, Rhodes' applied as top-dress
ing produces speedy growth-it does
not fire. Exposure is of great advan
tage, as it absorbs ammonia from the
atmosphere, rain and dew-it being
established that a large quantity of
ammonia per acre is evolved during
Sthe year from these sources.
An application of two hundred
pounds per acre is considered sufficient
for crops, but experienced planters
report three hundred pounds per acre
as repaying the outlay-high manur
ing, on a few acres, being the most de
sirable under our changed labor sys
Profess6r Charles U. Shepard, in a
recent paper, says: "The planter will
never obtain the beat offet of artifi
eial fertliser. until he incorporates
them lage. -i -..a~ss of sbe
manure, vegetable \nuck and wood
ashes. The idea of trusting to a few
hundred pounds to Ile noro of oven

surd to the Northern 4 European ag
rioulturist, who think nothing of on
