WEDNESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 23,1867.
THE LESSONS OF 1800.
In our previous articles on tho present system of
labor wo discussed tho subject in its bearings upon
tho freedmen. We showed that thcro is abundant
room in this State for all her laborers; plenty of
work and plenty of provisions also; and that it was
our conviction that tho negroes will do bettor to re?
main here, at or near their old homos, endeavor?
ing to contribute their quota to tho restoration of
tho country to something Uko its former prosperi?
ty, than to go to Florida or Texas, under the im?
pression that they will there improve their condi?
tion; especially when they emigrate upon their own
account or under government auspices, which is
the same thing.
Lost our colorod frionds should think that we
have not their interests at heart, and only hold
these views because we nood their labor, wo shall
quote a witness, whose testimony will not bo con?
sidered thus interested. In a recent number of tho
New York Times, we find a lotter from its Colum?
bia (S. C.) correspondent, dated January ll, giving
an account of General HOWARD'S recent visit to
that place. Ile saya : "Tbe General has for soveral
davs been visiting our colored people, and ascer?
taining from personal observation their mode ol
living, habits and condition. Two ?T???o- -tr?
ho wm riresontod to an immense crowd of negroes
in the African Church, and made them a grand
speech. His opinions aro regarded as quite tem?
perate and conciliatory. . He advised against their
going to other States, either westward or else?
where, and took pains to explain to them the dis?
advantages of moving under any circumstances,
and the uncertainties attending these efforts to
bettor their condition, by going to a soil of which
they did not understand the nature or tho modes
of cultivction. Ho urged thom to bo moral, in?
dustrious and faithful to their contracts; to give
all possible attention to educating their children,
and in every way to elevate their social position as
much as possible."
These same views, adverse to tho emigration oi
the freedmen, we have reason to believe are en?
tertained also by General SCOTT, the Commissioner
, of tho Freedman's Bureau for this State, and by
i every other man of prominence and of candor, whe
has had a fair opportunity of becoming acquainted
? with thc nature, habits, character and wants ol
, the freedmen living amongst us.
, Wo shall now dismiss this part of our subject
: and address ourselves to a brief consideration o;
i the several plans and systems of labor that wert
tried during the two years just passed
r Giving a specified pro raia share of the crops
i in lieu of wages, soems to havo beeb tho custon:
> most genorally in use throughout the South. Thu
' for the obvious reason that after the universa
. ruin-precipitated upon the South by the sudder.
i and disastrous close of a long and disastrous
war-very few of the planters could command
[ sufficient capital, after procuring the most neces
'. sary provisions, seeds, implements, working ani?
mals, etc., to warrant them in obligating them
i selves to pay monthly wages in money to theil
laborers. There was no other plan feasible at thc
> time, and hence this was generally followed II
waa so again in 1866, comparatively few only being
i able to procure th2 necessary capital to pay regu?
lar monthly wages.
' Some worked their force en masse, as formerly;
others (also working upon shares) thought it bet
1 ter to separate the laborers in squads or families,
setting apart a small farm, to be cultivated by
each. The experience of planters varies according
to tho circumstances of each individual case. As
a goners! thing, we believe the plan of paying
monthly wages in money has proved most satisfac
' tory. In some casos the "working on shares'
may have proved satisfactory; but if so we have
never yet hoard of them. If there were no othoi
drawbacks in the latter plan, there would ever re?
main the difficulty of keeping long and trouble?
some accounts, and having a division of the crop
at the end of tho year; which division, with such
persons as the majority of negroes may bo sup?
posed to be, will always involve more or less oi
dispute. We may take it for granted, therefore,
that, as far as the various experiments of hired
negro labor have been fairly made, the plan ol
paying wages must be considered as the one hav?
ing given the most satisfactory results to all
There is, perhaps, moro money in the country
now than there was a year ago, but not enough to
allow of a general introduction of the system last
named. Many of our fan jera will therefore again
have to work on shares. They have the experience
of two years, and shculd therefore now be able to
profit by it. There is, of course, the same differ?
ence among farmers as among the followers of any
other calling. The same qualifications are requi?
site for success,-industry, vigilance perseverance
and economy. These he requires under all circum?
stances. If he is to have authority ?ver others in
his employment, he should have decision of char?
acter, be forbearing and conciliatory in his inter?
course with them, yet always assert a dignified
No rule can be given applicable to all cases, but
as a general thing, we believe, it will be found best
to "put in" no larger crop than can be readily cul?
tivated with the force in hand, and to plant a
smaller quantity of good or highly'manured land,
rather than a large numbpr of actes of a poor and
unproductive soil. - As between small fearon and
large plantations wo,would give no advice; the for?
mer suiting some and the latter others. Some
men can govern largo kingdoms," others cannot
rule their own households. Each -should, and
doubtless will, pursue that course for which his ca?
pacity and his means fit him, and which, we may
say, nature has marked out for him.
A few words in conclusion. Let all -our farmers
and planters, and, indeed, all others who have oc?
casion to employ negro labor,'ever bear in mind
the new duties and obligations upon them, in con?
sequence of the changed relation of the two races.
Let them be kind, and just to punctiliousness in all
their dealings with tho freedmen-tho more so on
account of,tho ignorance of the latter. Lot each
practically show, by his dealings with his subordi?
nados, that by industry, good behavior, and a faith?
ful compliance with their obligations, they will
never fail to make a comfortable support, and at
tho same time gain the esteem and good will of
those whom they most desire should think well of
iNVESTMKrrrs-EVTLS ar. INACTION.-The New'
York Journal of Commerce, while dedaring its in?
ability to answer the questions of numerous cor?
respondents as to the best investments for their
surplus oapital, yet indulges some reflections and
suggestions on tho subject which are valuable.
There is nb method, it truly remerks, of placing
any worldly substance beyond the reach of abso-.
lute, loss, except in'giving it in worthy charities.
All attempts to guard accumulated treasure from
the risk of loss, while retaining a personal con?
trol of it for futuro use, must fail, in the nature of
things. The risk must be incurred, and no hu?
man wit has found an investment that will hold
tte treasure beyond contingency. Some invest?
ments are safer than others, but even these can?
not be classified in order with any approach to
positive certainty. The general rule is true that
the chances of loss ore fairly measured by the
chances of profit. An investment which promises
a large return places the capital sta proportionate
risk, and the exceptions only prove Hie rule.
There never was a time when business men-felt
the burden of forecasting the future more op?
pressively than at present. This is one secret of
the increased mortality among prominent mer?
chants and capitalists during the last year and
both tho burden ?nd the uncertain ty increase as
Choy strain their vision to penetrate-, if possible
the unknown future
We do not recommend, however, a period of in?
action, because of this uncertainty; He that ob
servoth tb* clouds shall not sow, and fie that re
gardeth tb- winds shall not reap. Activity, with
some apparent loss, is better than utter, stasrna
tion; not only better for the community generally,
but also better for tho individual trader or .work?
man, whoso returns ; may seem to leave a balance
on the wrong sido of the account.. As a mamrrac
turing eetabUshment; snfStrs toss by Tunning Rt
loss than cost, than by an actual stoppago which
leaves the machinery to rust and tho laborers to
scatter, eo it is with individual enterprise. Sus?
pension brings tho rust of inaction on all tho ma?
chinery of business, and d spinates the forces
which must bo kept logothor if success is to bo
gained in tho futuio. Every man has done his duty
when he works at his best, and results may thon
bo safely loft to tho direction of an overruling Pro
idonco. Tho season for activity has como; lot all
mon do resolutely what comes most plainly to their |
hand, and hopo forftho best. This is not only ob?
vious wisdom, but tho cloarcst requirement of
duty. _ .
