^ THE CHINESE QUESTION.
COLUMBIA. S. C.. Tuesday, July 20.
TO IHK EDIIOB OF IRK It SWS.
I have read with great interest your edito?
rials on the subject of Chinese immigration.
Whilst yon advocate the expediency of intro?
ducing this kind of labor into the sogar, rice
and cotton fields of the South, I am pleased to
find yon not unmindful of the undoubted
advantages of white accessions to our popu?
lation. Let me suggest that this point should
be kept steadily in view. Th J Mongolian is
an experiment. The Caucasian is a f a<-t. The
Mongolian is an expedient. The Caucasian is
a principle. You may accept the Mongolian
lUxOiaries, but reject not your Saxon allies.
Assn abstract proposition, I presume few
persons would ad voe tte the introduction of
the Chinese element int?? our country. To the
ref!acting mind here, such a population must
Dossess few attractions. Thia Southern coun?
try has been the schoolhouse of the African.
Most it become, at additional expense, the
ichoolhouas of the Asiatic also ? If this be
Ule decree of Providence, it is well, and the
?achers must do their part. Bot if possible,
br one I would have our people excused from
?his missionary work, and, letting charity be?
rm at home, I would restrict the subject* of
?formation to our own ci Linens.
Since the abolition of African slavery and
;hs system connected with it, I have looked
sith hope to the time when the negro element
laving, by God's Pro vi olen oe. been eliminated
vj natural causes, this* land of oura, with its
rast resources, should be occupied, possessed
md ruled by a homogeneous and sympathetic
population, illustrating the benefits and enjoy?
ing tho fruits of a solid Christian civilization,
[know that thia consummation could not be
attained in a day; but the reflection suggested
itself that it was perhaps incumbent upon na
patiently to await our redemption.
I will admit that the Chinese question, hav
ag suddenly loomed up, changes the aspect
?f things. Owing to political interference and
persistent intermeddling, and to other causes,
me labor of the South becomes unsteady,
scarce and unreliable. The problem presents
itself for solution, how are lands of the South
to be cultivated ? Whilst looking to the immi?
gration from Northern Europe, and jajt when
our Southern proprietors had began co despair
of success in that quarter, the Chinaman sud?
denly, perhaps providentially, appears upon
the field, and is soon hailed, as if by popul?r
instinct, as the man for the times.
I confess myself startled at the striking co?
incidence. A new political vista opens before
the mind, and tue eyo seeks to penetrate its
One thing is apparent. It seems obvious
that it is useless to discuss the Chinese question
in the abstract ' The indications ara that the
matter in the concrete will soon be with us. I
shall not seek to solve a problem which will
solve itself. Around it ga.ber argumeuts pro
md con. The subject in its bearings, imme?
diate and remote, is a vast one. Ic suggests
.hat we live in aa era of startling changes. In
the South especially things generally aro in a
strikingly abnormal state. Hence many look
upon the advent of the Chinaman as cminent
y in keeping with the tunes, and they are
ready to stir the political cauldron until "tho
lurly-burly is done."
About one proposition there will ba DO dis?
rate-upon the field of labor in the South
lhere is room for Caucas an, Mongolian and
african. Our great want is labor with which .
io develops our resources and to augment our
iroductioas. This is the immediate matter
nth which we bava to deal. The labor that
ye have is insufficient. I he labor tuat wc
wild prefer is s ow to come. Under these
urcumstances, no one devoted to Southern in
?rests can consistently oppose this new labor,
vhicu, in a pressing enurgeucy, forces itself
ipou our notice. But this ciutio i mivwell

TO TU* EBITOR OF THE HEWS.
The recent publication in THE NEWS of much
that interests the planter, induces me to ask
the inseition in your eolumns of an article
more appropriately designed for an agricultu?
ral journal. As a large proportion of your
readers are plan' era, I suggest for their con?
sideration the following inquiry : Does corn
planting on upland in South Carolina, or
throughout the South, (I moan the cotton belt
of the South,) remunerate the planter ?
A negative reply comes this year from all
quarters, and the same will be the case two
years io three. The twenty-acre field of up?
land, that will produce this year ten bushels
per sere, will be the exception ; one-third ol
this goes to the freedman, and the remaining
two-thirds will be consumed by wear and tear,
blacksmith's bills, interest, insurance, taxea,
and the mule. Tbe planter's profit will be
notara?. Then why do planters persist in
cultivating so exhaustive and still so nnremu
nerative a crop ? I can assign no other reason
than the one assigned by the boy who was
asked, why he went to mill with a bushel of
meal in one end of the big and a rock in the
othor 1 He replied, he did it because daddy
Advising against growing upland corn I am
not an advocate for the cultivation of cotton to
the exclusion of forage and provision crops.
Not at all. Corn should be grown more or less
on all plantations, but solely upon snch landa
as will p ty best in corn. Io my judgment there
is not labor enough in the South to glut tho
market, were every acre of cultivated la> d
planted in cotton. Bat it would be nun ons in
more ways than one to pursue such a policy;
breads tuffs would be greatly enhanced, and
provender wonld become an expensive neces?
sity. The quantity of corn, however, con?
sumed by mau is but an item in the products
ot t be form, lt is the stock that are the c )stly
consumers. And the ooject of this article is
to suggest a method by which stock can be
more economically ted. labor more advantage?
ously employed, plantations improveJ, and,
withal, no corn cultivated upon upland?.
Any field capable of producing ten bushels
of corn per acre, will yield the same number
of bushels of rye; and one bushel of rye,
grouud into meal and made into a "mash"
with cut rye straw, will feed a boise or mule
one-fourth longer time than a bushel of corn.
The same held sown in red oats, anytime be?
tween 1st October and 1st April, will prodoce
threshed oats enough (the straw being salted
and Li as foddei ) to feed a number of animals
one-half longer than the ocra and fodder from
the name field.
Any piece of land, having an admixture of |
clay in its soil, sown io wheat in November,
and top-dressed with ten dollars' worth of
commercial manures per acre, any time be?
tween the 1st February and the 1st April fol?
lowing, will yield wheat enough io pay fer the
manures, bread the family, and buy the corn
the land would have produced.
Any field manured at seeding-ti me with ten
dollars' worth per acre af co .1 m er ci al manares,
and sown in barley, and again top-dressed as
suggested above lor wheat, will pi od noe crain
enough to pay for the manures, and bay twice
as much corn as tbe land would have produced
without manure. .
Any laborer thu can cultivate six acres or]
cotton and B?X of corn, can just as easily culti?
vate ten acres of cotton and eight acres of
either of the cereals.
These assertions are not made at random;
they are the result of my own experieooe. And
if these facts be true, each planter bas bat to
calculate for himself the diffareuce in cost if ?
seeding and harvesting a small grain crop, and
of c .titivating a corn crop. I may be mst with
the remark that wheat and barley are too cost?
ly to be fed to work animals. I reply, if they
are worth double in market what corn is, and
I can grow a bushel of either cheaper than i
can a bushel of corn, they are lees expensive
feed for my stock than corn would be. If
their marketable value woull be greatly re
du :ed by being more extensively sown then
we would only 1 e the happier people, because
breads t uffa would be cheapen.
For all small gram crops the land should be
thoroughly prepared as soon after the 1st
October as practicable, abd the grain brushed
or harrowed in, not ploughed in, and tbe land
rolled. Harvesting should, if possible, be
done with a reapf r, not with a cradle. The
best cradler will, in a luxuriant small gram
crop, in spite of himself, lose from three to five
bushels per acre. If tbe land is property pre?
pared, the reapsr saves it ail.
Were a more extended aroa of thoroughly
prepared land apon all of our cotton planta?
tions sown in that small grain best adapted
to the respective plantations, we could live
more independently, raise more stock, set our
own price upon cotton, and not bs so solicit?
ous about labor. An intelligent laborer accus?
tomed to improved machinery caa cultivate
more land and harvest more grain than any
half dozsn men who use the uncou;h imple?
ments of slavery times. As a planter, I feel
that tho great want ot the agricultural inter?
ests of our Siate is the introduction of that
class of shilled laborers, who, bringing their
improved implements with them, will become
laud proprietors, rather than the immigration
of hordes of illiterate foreigners, who would
soon become as demoralized and uncontrolla?
ble as our existing labi r.
