TUE IMMIGRATION QUESTION.
Views of General "Live Oak" Walker.
We find in tho Atlanta papers tho following
report ot some recent remarks of General W.
8. Walker, of South Carolina, before the Geor?
gia Stato Agricultural Convention, in favor of
the bill fdr the encouragement of immigra?
Mr. President-Th's convention is composed
of the representativo mon of tho Mate of Geor?
gia, upou the subject of agriculture It is fair
to assume that they represent the experience
of the farmers of thc Stato upon the labor
question which is now under discussion, and
it' any fact has been elicited, it is that in the
opinion of nine men out of ten on this floor,
tho labor upon which the very existence of tho
State depends is unreliable. No moro weighty
or momentous question could be submitted for
the consideration of men ol all classe -, than
the remedy for an evil so vital.
In my opinion, the most efficacious remedy
will be f. und io immigratior.
To be weak ia to be dopen, lent, with individ?
uals and with nationa, Inmigration will givo
us strength both of numbei* and wealth. With
strength will como politic -1 influence and re?
cognition and tho respect of Federal and Stato
Ia the census of 16V4, it appears that tho
total number of immisrrants to the United
States from the year 1819 to 1860, was 4,000,
000. Ot this the number absorbed by the
Northern and Western States wa* 86 nor cent.,
and by thc Southern but 13 per cent, or the
ratio of Gj th 1. In round numbors. while the
South received about 500,000, the North had
an acquisition cf 8 500,000. Each immigrant
brou:?ut on an average per head $100 in gold.
This mado the iucreaso of wealth from this
source about fifty millions for the South, and
three hundred and fifty millions to tho North.
At the commencement of the Revolution,
the most powerful Stato of tho Confederacy
was Virginia, and the population of tho two
sections was about equal. In the year 1870, it
is estimated that the total population of the
United States will be 42,000.000, of which we
wdl havo but.i?.000,000 and the North 30,000,000.
With such a brreat and continually increasing
disproportion of population, must it uot have
been merely a question of time as to how soon
the more powerful section would forco upon
the weaker political dogmas which had as?
sumed the vehemence of religious as well as
11 the trying circumstances in which we aro
placed, wo should snatch every ray of conso?
lation, and " pply every source of philosophy
we can glean from our disaster*. A genuine
ground of congratulation may be found in the
fact, that this disproportion of acquisition of
loreign labor must hereafter cease. I think it
may bo safely predicted that, within two or
thvee years, a largo amount will flow to the
South, if we make the proper exertion to se?
There ia room for a vast increase. Thc State
cf Massachusetts contains about 160 inhabi?
tants to the square milo, witn. a comparatively
uoroJuctive soil, and under un inch mont sky.
Tho State ol Georgia is capable of support?
ing a Ltrgor population per square mile. If
sho wei eas thickly settled as Massachusetts,
abe would have a population of over 9.000 000.
If sho wore as deusoiy populated as Belgium,
she would contain 25 000,000 inhabitant.
But wo aro met with au objection by a snail, -
tkough nip hiv respectable class, who do not
wain an adulteration ot our bloud with a for?
eign or Northern clement. This is tho doc
tnno of steguation aucLnolitical death. If it
were -, ossiblo to carry it out it would entail
eternal weakoess ana dependence Weroit
practicable to build a Chinese wall of exclusion
along the frontier and thc seaboard of tho
Southern States, in tom twouty-oue to twenty
five years the population of tho North and
Wost would numb.r about 60,000 000, whilo
tho white population of tue South, exclusivo of
Kentucky, Missouri and Maryland, would be
about 10,000 000.
The fears of this highly rospcctablo react?
ionary class are really unfounded. Trans?
plant Normern men to the soil of the South,
and will thoy not have as kee a a sonse of their
interest in latitude 35 as in latitude 40 ? Does
not om- interest become identical in all mat?
ters of agitation and material progress?
A striking illustration of tho influence cf
Southern associations upon Northern men ie
found in the lact that two of our representa?
tive men, whose names are- honored in every
Southern household, General John ?. Quit
man and Sargent S. Prentiss, were born and
bred to manhood in tho North, before they
emigrated South, the one from Mime and the
other from New York.
It is natural and right to look with feelings
of filial affection upon the past ago of the
South-tho ago of a high-spirited, refined
hospitable, religious and nappy poople. But
the peculiar elements of civilization under
whoso pressure it was produced and fostered,
bas disappeared, never to return. Tho ties
which bo jud the slave to his master aro d s
puted. The rich products of tho soil which
foimerly enabled us to be lav;.-h and t:onerous
in our expenditures, now require catotul
husbandry to sccuro support. Economy has
becomo a bynonoym for houosty. Let us in
our heart ol "beans cherish thc memoiy ot our
ancebtrv aud vin neate their fame; but lot us
also imitate their manhood, and avail our?
selves of every help which will cnaole us to
take our place among tho foremost iu tho race

General Grant's Speech and the Politi?
cians- thc Place Hunters Set Back
Tf notp-of-offlce Act-Tne Senate and
Tho Washington correspondent of the Balti?
more onn writes under date of tho 14th inst. :
Tho reply of General Grant to the Congres?
sional Committee yesterday is tho topic of con?
versation among all classes of politicians. His
remarks seem to meet with approbation hom
all save, perhaps, the aspirants for office. The
speech of yesterday gives evidence tbat Gene?
ral Grant does not intend to be governed in
the selection of bis Cabinet by the dictation of
the manipulators of political interests, but will
exercise his own judgment without taking to
his confidence either tho men who desire a
placo in the Cabinet, or the friends of those
who expect much by w"y of official patronage
when their favorites get into power. General
Grant says in the selection of officers he will
begoverued alone by the necessities of the
Bervico for the present; therefore, there is a
lull in the business of the place-hunters and
seekers of official pap, their occupation is gone,
at all events, until alter the 4th cf March, if,
indeed, their business is not indefinitely post?
poned. Tho few reporters (but three or four)
who were fortunate enough to be present ac
tho interview between General Grane and the
committee, differ somewhat as to the phrase?
ology of the remarks made on the occasion,
but all agree as to the purport of wbat was
said, which was somewhat in the COJ versa Mon?
al sty le. The features of that which came from
General Grint were briefly that ho would de?
mand economy, retrenchment, faithful dis?
charge of official trust, collection of the reve?
nue, payment of tho public deo ; Wist io ac?
complish this ho will not hesitate to tu X out
any officer, high or low, and appoint his suc?
cessor, and that he will not announce the names
of the members of his Cabinet until he takes
the presidential chair.
Democrats, as well as Republicana, with the
exceptions named above, say to this, "Amen."
Meantime it is observed that thore is more
quiet in Washington than was ever known be?
fore at a corresponding period. There aro
fewer strangers present than heretofore upou
the ove of an inauguration.
it is argued by some that that part of Gen?
eral Grant's remarks relative to thc removal
and appointment of officers will probably de?
termine the Senate in the disposition of tho
bill to repeal or modify tho Tenure-of-offico
act. The Senato has had a taste of power un?
der that law never heretofore enjoyed by that
body, which it will'be loth to surrender, and it
ia not now believed that the Senate will agree
to a repeal of the act, aud possibly not even to
a modification of it, until General Grant dis?
covers his mude of getting rid ot and appoint?
A Vlait io General Grant-What [fe
Thinks of tn e Franking Privilege and
thc Trnnrc-of-olUcc Law.
A Washington letter dated February 12, to
tho Newark Courier.says :
General Grant receives visitors daily, from
10 to 12o'clock, at army headquarters-a-plain
three-story brick buildiug, with a high pillared
piazza, located on the corner of Wost Seven?
teenth and M-streots. In company with a
couple obladles and two or three gentlemen of
distinction we had a pleasant interview of
half au hour or so with him this morning. He
received the porty with cordiality, but with
no unnecessary display, and at ohca entered
into conversation upou tho current topics ot
the day. The COL versation turning upon the
tendency to extravagince in tno govern?
ment, he declared, with thc utmost em?
phasis, tho conviction that Congress should
seek, by all means in its power, to stop
tue leaks winch aro from time to timo dis?
covered-commencing with tho completo abo?
lition of the trunking prinleutO. which !>*>
regarded as an utter abomination. Why not,
ho inquired, do away entirely with tho privi?
lege, and rcquiro members of Congress to pay
their own postage-allowing them therefor in
the settlement of their accounts ? This is the
rule, he added, as to tho generals of the ar?
mies, and it is the right ono for all cases.
'.Members of Congress have frequently pro
Eosod to give me tt"? franking privilege, but I
avo uniformly decnncd ; tho quartermaster
allows me for my actual expenso of postage,
and I don't want tho government to do any
moro thau this." To a suggestion that there
seemed to be a propriety in peimitting mem?
bers of Congress to transmit to their constitu?
ents documents of public interest and value,
General Graut replied that, according to his
observation, tho great majority of those who
receive the documents caro little or nothing
for them, though some probably feel flattored
by their receipt, and in his judgment tue peu?
ple would be quito willing to forego tbeirsbare
in the benefits of the exercise of thc pnvilego
for the sake ot getting rid of tho abuse to
wbicU it hoe given rise. It leads to an enor?
mous expel se, is unnecessary, and should bo
torn up by tho roots.
In reference to another matter-tho extrava?
gance of Congress in tho printing of docu?
ments-General Grant expresses himself with
equal emphasis. Ono of the visitors expressing
a wish that the subsidizing of tho Congres?
sional Globe m.gilt bo stopped, and a law pass?
ed requiring over* member to pay for tho pri li?
ing of his own speeches, the General said that
this, while desirable, would abate only a small
part of tho evil. Tons of documents ?re print?
ed every year which aro of no couceivablo in?
terest to any one, and havo no value outside of
a very limited sphere. Why should money be
wasted in printing what no s .n.' publisher in
tue laud would think of touching for a mo?
ment? Thc whola thing is wrong, und ought
lo bo stopped.
There can bc no doubt at all tint Goneial
Graut desires tho repeal ot the rcnurc-ot-oOice
law. He feels that so lom.' as it remains upon
tho sc..tute book, ho will bo unnecessarily ham?
pered and restricted in purging tho various
branches of the government servico of corrupt
and dishonest officials who, having got into
power by appointment of Mr. Johnson or the
complaccucy of tho Senato, aro now able to
command influential supporters ni the latter
body. It is a woll kuowu fact that even the*
clerks of thc department bave been ablo, by
menaces and otherwise, to drive members of
Congress into thc support of their scheme for
an advance of their pay; and ii this could bc
dono by persons of inconsiderable influence,
what might not bo done by tue wealthy "rinus"
in whiskey, in Indian affairs, ?fcc., toward
preventing the removal of corrupt men and
the appointment of honest officials iu their
steady General Grant said that, so far aa he
knew, every thief m the government employ,
and every ''ring" which isongagod in debauch?
ing l?gislation, wanted tho law to stand as it
is. Referring to the objection made by some
that to ropeal thc law now would amount to a
confession that it was passed solely to embar?
rass Mr. Johnson, General Grant romarkod
that this was, undoubtedly, the object Con?
gress had in view-the preservation of the pu?
rity of the public service against tho inroads
of rascality and inconipotency, and ho saw
nothing in that fact of which any man need to

because be had more of thc coutidvuee of tue

You have been curious to know, no doobt,

upon a gentleman whose communicativeness

received it, reads: "Ur. John Everitt. of Lon?

having often experienced myself the need of a
talkative railway acquaintance in a fore gn
land, I explained tho landmarks we passed,
and revived tho carly days of railroading be

allel accounts of railroading in Great Britain, I
saw that this and kindred subjects were made

HOS! Ell ER'S BITTERS is tho ?afest, sorest and

mild and agreeable to tho taste, and stimulating in
