THE NATIONAL CAPITAL IN TEE HANDS
OF A MOB OF NEGRO RIOTERS.
BLOODY FIGHTS WITH THE POLIOS.
WasanoTOW, Jane 7.-The municipal elec?
tion in this city to-day waa carried by the Radi?
cals, their opponents offering: hut slight oppo?
sition. The polls were abandoned almost en?
tirely to the negroes.
A very serions riot took pk ce in the Second
Ward. The negroes chased * conservative
black man to his house and assailed
tte dwelling. The inmates escaped from
the rear. The conservative negro found re?
fuge in an upper story, when the police ap?
proached, surrounded the house and brought
him down, eodosing bim in a hollow square.
They thus carried him to the polia where he
Toted. The negroes at this became furious,
and threw vol lies of stones and fired pistols at
the njface. The chief of police was wounded
in the arm. and ordered his force to fire
Over the heads of the black mob. This
to increased the violence of the riot
tere that the police were compelled to
fire a volley directly tuto them, killin,- one anl
wounding three, when the mob Had. Earlier
in the day a policeman was cut with a razor
and seriously beaten in the Six ; h Ward. Blot?
ing also occurred in several of the other wards,
but in every oase was ooufined exclusively to
negroes. The polioe have behaved well. The
negrota are very disorderly to-night, and axe
drinking freely, whian causes muon apprehen?
sion for the peace of the community during
La.ns.-The turbulence seems to be subsi?
ding. Ike prompt action of the polioe has
struck terror among the violent and riotous,
while orders lo the Marine Gorps to hold
themselves in readiness to move at a moment's
warning to any part of the ci ty .have in a mea
sure quieted the fears of the community. It
is bot Just to say that no respectable colored
citizens of Wa abington participated in or en

PROMULGATION OT TUB NEW SPANISH 00M8TT
. MADRID, Juoe 6.-The co .stitntion was pro- ,
mulgated yesterday with great pomp. Tbe
Executive Council and Cortee appeared on a ;
platform, where tbe Secretary of the Cortes :
read the ooustituiioo, which was loudly sp- ?
?lauded by tbe immense ron course. On re?
turning to tbe Cbs aber, each member of the
I Corte? swore to protect and support the con- \
I stitntion. After the promulgation some few <
I kisses were heard, and a tumult ensued, I
which only subsided when the Governor of <
Madrid rushed among the foremost rioters, <
shouting ' Pica aoverania nacional.'1 'ibis 1
.hanged the feeling of the fluctuating mob, i
which joined in cheering with the Governor <
and the tumult subsided. Only two were kill- i
ed, but several wounded. The deputities sub- .
sequen tty returned to the platform and review- i
ed 80,000 troops. The enthusiasm on all sides ;
was very great. It waa noticed, however, that
none of the Republican deputies participated in ?
the proceeding. A ci vio procession followed
the review, after which came a grand banquet
and fireworks. Over 100,000 persons from the
country visited Madrid during the day.
A bill will be introduced in oonnod creating
Serrano regent of Spain, but without power to
sancflbn laws or to dissolve Chambers. The :
direct taxes in the Spanish colonies have been ;
reduced one-half and a small export duty on i
sugar, rom and tobacco imposed.
Much anxiety is felt here in regard to Cuba.
The unes si ness is increased by the fact that i
the government is un willing to publish the tel- 1
eg rams which it leoeives from Cuba.

COLDUBIA, Jane 7.-The City Council is a1

suitable plane and necessary buildings for the

towards selecting the University grounds lyme

committee of the Council is co-operating with

The inauguration of the negro regime at the
poBtoffioe has been the absorbing topic for
nearly a week. At first Wilder and bis corps
of clerks ware io the gravest oonfusion. Mails
kept comiua in laster than they cou'd be CU'B
tiibuted. Distributed mail-matler was pnt
into wiong places. Deliverable mail-matter was
sent to the wrong address. For a day or two
the oodeat pranks were played by the alpha?
bet. M's and Wa, X's and F's, P's, J's, D's
and B's were mixed up in utter disregard of
primers and pedagogues. Io a coupla of dajs
a change for the better came-names of tbe
same letter got together, and went out togeth?
er; such as Symns ers, buber and s aluda Facto?
ry, all to tbe same person, lt is probably with?
in bounds to say that mistakes of this kind
wrong deliveries-occurred in hundreds of
cases. Delays were by thousands.
Mr. Lea phar t, the former assistant post?
master, was implored to give a helping hand.
Early in the week Wilder begged him to accept
his former position upon bis owa conditions -
that is, to take io his own corps of subordi?
nates. This offer, on account of ba si ness re?
lations, was put off until tbe end of the week.
To-day the community rejoices in the proba?
bility of its being accepted, ir so, order,
promptness and accuracy are to be looked for.
Under the regime of the past week an outraged
community bastad substantial reason to cry
out against the nuisar.ee of such a corps of
clerks; and it bas cried out. With the re?
employment of the former assistant, and his
experienced corps of white clerks, will come a
new and agieeable phase of the matter.
Wilder will have secured a degree of respect
and confide DOC with the community, which
could never be his were he to succumb to the
dictation of party influence in retaining incom?
petent employees in the postoffice.
The jam ot negroes at the general delivery
during the past week has been unprecedented.
They seem lo take for granted that a negro
clerk in the Dostofllce ought to have more let?
ters for negroes tuan a white one. Is there
not some way in which this might be so? Tbe
inquiry is suggested by the circumstance en?
The hopes of farmers may bo quoted as firm,
arith an upward tendency. The warm weather
of the past ten da> s has given an opportunity
io work tbe crops weil, and the results are de?
cidedly favorable. Cotton is becoming healthy;
ind, although not as thick as desirable, may
be said to be almost enough except in a few
places. This thin stand bas, in addition to its
thinness, the advantage in many cases ot
strong fertilizers; so that we may reasonably
count on a very floe yield to the s'a Ik. And in
general there appears DO reason now why the
yield of cotton shall not be at least fair. With
the most favorable conditions of good seasons
and late fall, it may be good, if not floe.
The partial success of a few of the freedmen
last year has induced a good many of them to
venture upon planting for themselves-rent?
ing lands and conducting the business by
themselves. At this, failure is almost certain.
As laborers they ara working as usual; that
is to say, like free negroes always work. A
practical planter estimates that one slave did
as much work as three freedmen will do.
Dreamers about negro educability imagina
that there is an experiment being made with
ne gr > labor. It is no experiment at all. Three
thousand years just past are full of proofs
opon tbe question. When forced by other
men to do so, the negro will work, otherwise
he will not. The negro was so in Homer's
time, has been so in all times since then., and
is so to-day. The North American Indian will
go to wo.-k about as soon as the negro.
At the University initiatory Bte pa are bamg

commencement ball, is to be given at the Co?
lumbia Hotel on the night of the Public Day.
Day bet?re yesterday ware found nnder the
rains of Kinsl er's Hall, in this city, bumed by
Sherman's anny in 1865, the bones of a man.
A dice-box and di : e. also an axe, were found
with them. These facts somehow have cre?
ated the general impression that the bones are
those of one ot Sherman's enterprising defen 1
era of the Union; and it is a notorious fact that
the axe waa very freelv need by those de end?
ers while in the capital of South Carolina.
lhere is one fact, however, that militates
against the correctness of this general conclu?
sion-the bones are those of a negro.
WHERE THE WEST IS.
The Chicago Tribune says :
Chicago is no longer a Western, but is an
Eastern city. It is only 9u0 miles to the At?
lantic coast, while it is 2350 nines to the Pacific
coast. Dividing the Union into east, centre
and west, each division is abo it 1100 miles
wide. The eastern division will embrace all
the Stales lying east of tho Mississippi River;
the central,* all the States and Territories) be?
tween the Mississippi and tho Bocky Moun?
tains; and the western, all the States and Ter?
ritories between the Bucky Mountains and the
Pa nic coast. Somewhat the largest of those
three great divisions is the central. And. as?
tonishing as it may appear to those who have
not ex-mined tho map carefully, the territory
lying west ol the Bjcky Mountains contains as
many square miles as the territory east of the
Mississippi River, notwithstanding this com
prises eleven Southern, all of the so-called
' Eastern" and "Ceutral" States, and ali of the
old "Northwest." The completion of the Pa?
cific Kui way has changed tbetormer west into
east and central, and moved the west 1200
miles towards the setting sun- The actual
west consists of California. Oregon, Washing?
ton, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Montana, Wyo?
ming, and the major portion of Colorado and
New Mexico, lt is hard to realize tho truth
that Chicago is an Eltern city, and that Illi?
nois is not even a ceutral, bul is an eastern
State. Omaha which has always been iegar
ded as on the western verge of the "Far West,"
is in fact 150 miles east ol tho centro of the
Union I We are nat surprised, therefore, that
the citizens of that enterprising little place
resent tbe imputation ot being in tho Far Weet.
In short, this is a tolerably long "keutr j " from
east to west, and when the Dominion is "ab?
sorbed" the distance will be eq laliy j as great
trom north to south.*
A GREAT CONSPIRACY AGAINST THE
DEPOSED MUM ARCH.
HOW TO PLACE HIM ON HIS THRONE
Speech of ? Radical Mississippi Senator
A STARTLING EXPOSE.
While the Southern Commercial Convention
was in session at Memphis, General J. L. Al?
corn, United States senator elect from Missis?
sippi, delivered before a committee of cotton
growers a speech, which contains statements
in regard to the cultivation of cotton in the
Sonth, which ate as startling as they are
strange. Senator Alcorn gives in detail the
facts and fleures from which he draws his
conclusions, and his views are so important,
whatever their intrinsic soundness, that we
present to our readers a comprehensive sum?
mary of the principal points made in l>?j elab?
After speaking of the financial imporlance
of tbe production of raw cotton nod its power
before the war as a peace makei, he describes
the unfaltering struggle of En eland against
our cotton supremacy, ODO of wlnse results
was the formation of the Manchester Cotton
Supply Association, which wields enormous
wealth, is directed by high practical intelli?
gence, and is backed by all the influence of the
British Government. Io 186*2 this association
was ahead; convinced that America could not
for many years to come, if ever, regain the
position she had lost, and that of the ?40,000,
000 sterling, up 'o that time the pr.zo of the
American planters, other countries should
strive to obtain at least ?20 OOd 000. This was
tbe basis of what Senator Alcorn called "the
conspiracy against Km g Cotton, whioh pro?
ceeds on the assumption that the emancipa?
tion of the negroes, the exhaustion of the war,
the withholding from us of Northern confi?
dence and capital will have so reduced our
powers ot producion, that giving what is
called 'a start' to competition on the part of
thirty-five other countries, this Amer ici of
ours, if not driven wholly from tbe market,
will be, at all events, degraded from her su?
premacy to the condition of a 'tributary source
DETAILS AND. PB OO OE S3 OP THE CONSPIRACY.
Tbe combination against Amer io n colton
industry reveals its workings over a wide field,
lue British Government has lett nothing un?
done to stimulate the ouliure of cotton
throughout its boundless domain. Companies
1 avo been set going for the purpose in Aus?
tralia, io Jamaica aud m Natal, lu that em?
pire, on which tue *uu neve, sets whether in
India in Africa, or in ber island 1 of tbe oceans.
English poliov is working wah the nutty, point
and torco ot a principle to break duwn forever
the galling monopoly that baa been forced
upou ber acceptance by au industrial triumph
i h it should warm every Amerioau cueek with a
flush of pride.
England has also boen Bot lesB active in
Turkey, iu Venezuela, and in other foreign
con innes in urging tho authorities to t ike
steps for fixing cotton culturo among its poa
f*U? 4*y a pt-ompt ciBPleymetit of the opportuni?
ty offered bv the difficulties of these United
France is also in the field, and in Algeria
colton is exempt from taxation, its quality is
made a subject of l?tate prizes, and free gifts
of land are off-red to associations wbiou will
enter upon its cultivation. Greece has reduced
her tax on cotton one-half. Brazil is distribut?
ing imported seeds. Austria aud Morocco
have alBO (allen into line. Egypt has doubled
her production. Portugal bas abolished tbe
import duties on cotton for ten years, has
offered premiums for its production, and
makes free gifts to the planters of soeda and
implements. Italy has run laihoaus into her
cotton districts, and invites foreign and do?
mestic capital by most liberal offers.
Of the increased foreign production Sen it or
Alcorn says : "Hayti had, between 1860 and
1862, increased her exports of cot iou three?
fold. Malta produced in 1162 four times as
much as she bad in 1861. Smyrna, w neb had
reappeared in the cotton market in 1861 to tbe
extent of 10 000 bales, contributed to it in 1862
as many as 60,000 bales. Twenty-six som ces
of supply furnished contributions bf raw mate?
rial to the mills of Manchester in 1860. but in
18C4 the number has inoreaseTl to thirty-nine,
and the thirteen new sources are not all un?
worthy of serious attention. Arnon ? them we
find Japan to the extent of 21000 bales ; Tur?
key to tbe number of 38 OOO bales ; Hong Kong
to the extent of 77,000 bales; China to tbe num
oer of 140 OOO bales-a startling result of the
labors of this conspiracy tor but three short
years. Nor is this all ; many of the sources of
supply in 1860 had contributed to tbe English
demand of 1864 in volumes enormously in?
creased. The Egyptian contribution to tbe
British markets bad expanded from 98,000 in
1860 to a-much, in 1864. as 280 000bales. The
Brazilian importations of cotton into England
had increased between 1860 and 1834 from 88,
000 bales to 85 000 bales. The Indian fibres
entered at British ports in 1860 reuched 455,
000 bales ; but in 1864 they had gone up to
SUPERIORITY OF FIBRE.
Senator Alcorn then explodes the old theory
of i fibre monopoly, by which is meint the
ability, through climate, of producing a supe?
rior fibre to that of other countries. He shows
that Hayti, Morocco and Algeria produce quite
as good a staple, and that in other countries
the development of greater skill and the appli
catioo of manures are steadily producing bet?
He says : "No fewer than thirty-five coun?
tries seut specimens of cotton to the London
Exhibition of 1862. Au English cotton broker, ,
a mao moteover of decided ability, was select- ,
ed to decide that point in ox i ct detail. As a \
basis of classification, he assumed good mid - j
diing New Orleans at thirteen peu JO per pound. .
Thirteen peuce was the average of his valua- j
tioua of sevan specimens sent from the Baba- ,
mas. Fourteen pence was the average ot the
price he set on three samples J rom the Berum
das. From eleven pence to three shillings was
tbe range of values which he attaches to thir?
ty-four different cottons pioduc d in Guade?
loupe, an island in the French WeBt Ind ii e.
The Jamaican samples, in all twenty-two, ho
estimate 1, for long staple, at prices between -
two and three shillings; for short staples, prices 1
between eleven pence and eighteen pence. The '?
returns made by the British Board of Trade
state the average cost per hundred weight of ,
thc different cottons imported into England in
1864. The American qualities being Bet down
in those statistics at ?1311s. ld. per cwt; those '
of fifteen other sources ot supplv are Bet dowu i
at amounts varying between ?1212s. and ?13 t
7s. 9J. Wilh a difference so small out ween our ,
fibres and those of the fifteen couuirica refer?
red to, what bec jmes of the t.ieoiy that places ,
us in possession of an iuv.siblo Youopoly by
virtue of a climate of special ti bivi, wheu it is
Known that ihoso fifteen countries include
H^yti, San Domingo, Venizuelu Honduras,
Egypt, Brazil and the West Indies ?'* added to 1
this is the fact that foreign m ? nu; ac Hirers i
changed the character of their macbineiy at ?
thu time or tue interruption of tho American \
supply, so as to work the Indian nd other .
Reviewing the pros rc ES mado in India and 1
? he statements made by trustworthy peruons. :
Senator alcorn comes to the conclusion that,
"taking into consideration the met thal ihe
operatives of England havo ht come accustom?
ed to tho manipulation of lucian cottons, and
tbe still more ominous fact of modifications
made in English machinery with ti o view of
better adaptation to these fibres wc find nuoh ,
more reason for apprehending that events may
before long be found to have < xpanded the
application of our theory of cotton cliumio lo a
width covering even tho most mfeiior cottons
of India. A scrutiny of our position shows
that our selfish over-confidouoe in refei once ,o
tho competition of India may prove dange?
"Our supposition that other countries cannot
equal us in the quality of the fibre breaks' down
before thc laois developed in Hayii and else
where. Of the thirty-five countries represent?
ed in the ootton conference in London, soveral
oame within the operation of onr theory of
fibre climate.. A large number ot the partici?
pants in that anti-American conspiracy repre?
sented lands within the basin ol the Mediter?
ranean. Taking in both cases tho beat aver?
ages, or, as they are died, the isothermal
teats of similarity of climate, a glance at a
physical atlas will show that the countries
along the shores of the Mediterranean-except?
ing those affected by local causes-enj >y a cli?
mate similar to that of our own cotton belt,
The question of value in cotton is not, how
ever, one of theoretical deduction. Those of
Egypt, for example, bad proved themselves,
for twenty years befort our civil war, to be of
thc very choicest qualities. The Turkish
fibres-those of the Levant-were known half
a century ago to be equal to the very finest
in the market. The Algerine cottons are, it ?s
true, affected by the influenae of the desert,
but those of Moro ci o. sheltered by Mount
Atlas, and moistened by the influence of the
ocean currents, represent admiraule fibrcB.
Cotton ha? been produced in Italy for nearly a
thousand years. Its growth has never been
totally Riven up in t'iat oouotry; the plant bas
continued to grow under all vicissitudes of
tyrann ? and violence. To-day it is cultivated
tbere for domestic consumption in several of
the provincos. In our time o it too has been
exported from that country iu large quantities.
During the continental Bys cm of Napoleon
Bonaparte the raw material oould not be ob?
tained m Europo fr m any source, and this
stimulated the growth ID me Iialiao peninsula
to 8U3h an extent as to nave superseded tbere
even the fig, tho mulberry, and tho olive. Per?
fectly available, tbereiori-, for all the pumo-es
of the conspiracy a.ain6i Amoricin indus tty
are toe fibres of the peninsula and islands of
the Italian kingdom. Confidence in our mono
poly ot i he fibre climate proves to be a bruken
reed. Within tbe limits of that theory, as we
held it. wo find ourselves confronted with hos?
tile movemems in Eg* pt. Turkey, Greece,
Malta, the Ionian Islands, Morocco, and Italy.
But the aotual danger of the combination
BA"ainsi the proudest victory of American in?
dustry has been shown to embrace, besidoa
these, Brazil, India and Hay u."
THE A OE A AVAILABLE FOB OOTTON PRODUCTION
According to Senator Alcorn the average
that may be diver ed in India to cotton, is not
so great as is gener illy supposed. In Brazil
tue quantity of land available for cotton pro?
duction is set do?n as practically unlimited;
iuEgvpt, 3 000.000 acre?; in Hayti 3,000,000
acre- ; and in Italy, 8 000.000 acres. E?ypt
and Italy alone are feta ted to bo able to occu?
py fully our former place in the market of too
woila, wimont including India, Turkey, Hay
ti, Brazil, and the West Indies, and that now
foreign colton, which can be procured in un?
limited quantities, ia well suited to from fifty
to seventy-five per oenr. of the purposes of
the mill owners.
THE QUESTION Ot PRICE.
He theo touches upon tbe question of price
and shows therein another dinger. Am, rica
is not now in condition to prouuoe cotton at
any min g like the prices prevailing prior to the
war, whilst, on tbe other band, loreign couu
tues, by means of a cheap labor system, are
producing at pnces not muon above the low?
est that ever prevailed in trna country.
"The report of tbe Cotton Conference of
London goes wi tb precision into tue question
of the trice at which cotton can bo produced
ia the several countries represented in that
anti-American conspiracy. Two penco half?
penny per pound will, according to Dr.
Forbes, pay for t ie.production of cotton in
ludia. And Mr. chapman, the manufacturer
quoted in the chapateo of tbe British Secro
tary of Legation at Petersburg, says that the
displace .ont from tbo market of fifty per
oent. of the American fibres will follow, EO loog
as those fibres carry a price higher than the
Indian cotton in the proportion of fifteen per
cent. In Brazil, the proceedings of tbe cotton
conference state that the planters will reap a
profit, and the cnltivation will extend at prices
as low aa tour ponce per pound. Io Ecuador
raw cotton can, it is a leged, ha.produced, jil
orofit at four pence por pound. Hix pence' pi
pound is sud to be the lowest price at wnioh
that culture would pay in Venezuela. At six
Donen a pound, on the spot, au increase in the
breadth of o ji ton planting would, it is affirm?
ed, go on continually in Hayti. From thr e to
lour pence is declared to be the cost of produc?
ing cotton in Angola, oue of tho African pos
sessions or Portugal. lu Greece cotton plant
iug canuot be maintained, it uppoars, at less
than B?X penco per pound, but auy excess of
pnce above tbat will lead, in that country, to its
extension. In Italy the cost of producing the
fibre is Bet down at from four to six pen^e
per pound. The specifications, may be sum?
med up. in accordance with the statement of
Mr. fYauklyn, by assuming that the contest for
the maintenance of our cotton supremacy must
be fought at prices not higher than six pence
per pound. The vice-chairman of the Cotton
Supply Association laya down the precise
grouuu OD wbicb the war for the destruction of
our prosperity is to be waged. ID a 'racon
no sanco of our position' he says: The
American planter owns he could not oultivate
c mon at the price of four pence per pound.
. * * But since 1846 the aveiage phoe has
ne /er been nnder BIX pence per pound, ant
tbere is every probability that for some years
to come he will be unable to afford his article
at much less than eight or nine pence per
pound; ao that the question for you to consider
IB whether your coontry can, under any state
of circumstances, produce cotton at six pence
per pound, if you can, you are perfectly safe
in future competition with America.' "
THE P. KM EDY.
Senator Alcorn says, iu conclusion, that to
make the production of cotton In tbe United
States profitable, in face of the various acci?
dents which causo a short yield, the cotton in?
terests must be made supreme and able to con?
trol the market, so as to m ak o good the Bb on?
comings by iDcreaae of price. Without a mo- j
nopoly thia omoot bo done. To do this, there
fore, and to coun eract, so far aa possible, the
effect of toe foreign con-piracy, will require
vigor?os efforts on the part of the American
producers and extensive aid from the Govern?
ment in reconstxueting the Mississippi
levees. It will not do to strive in tho bat?
tle of prices with uplands, averaging from
two to five hundred pounds per acrr, forde
