-Commentingupon Mr. Bigelow's withdraw?
al from the Times, the Commercial Advertiser
says: "Journalism fifteen years ago, when Mr.
Bigelow waa tho master-spirit of the Post, is
quite different from journalism of the present
day. Newspapers were then In their small?
clothes and editors were learning the journal?
istic alphabet. It hos been ascertained that
something beside solemn, -profound, and
stately leaders are required to make a news?
paper palatable to tho reader and profitable to
the publisher. Mr. Bigelow is a dignified,
conscientious and scholarly journalist, as every
one admits, but Mr. B. has been too long out
of the editorial harness and the management
o? newspapers to make a successful editor-in
-The promise ol'a large supply of Chinese
labor at no distant date makes any testimony
as regards the capacities of emigrants from j
the Flowery Kingdom for house service ex?
ceedingly interesting. A. gentleman who re?
sided for several years in Havana writes to the
New Orleans Picayune a glowing account of
his experience with a Chinese cook. This ser?
vant not only prepared all his dishes in the
most admirable manner, learning most readily
everything new, and improving on almost
everything he learned, but 'his peculiar care?
fulness, delicacy and cleanliness made every?
thing specially appetizing. He kept the house
in order, attend?? to his master's clothes, and
did general housework. When dinner was
announced he was found at the head of the
table, ready to wait upon the company, and
no two wailers could have i>erformed the
duties more satisfactorily. His cleanliness
may be judged from the fact that he always
dress-J in white down to his slippers, and no
stain was ever noticed upon his clothing. But
such servants must be rare even among China?
The events of yesterday indicate that the
' truce patched np on trie ^ previous night
will not secure shipmasters aud shipping
agents from fresh differences and a renewal
of their old embarrassments. As long as
the colored longshoremen are swayed by
the insidious counsels of white politicians
and negro demagogues, they will not stick
for long to any agreement or be bound by
We presume that the employers will now
hire what hands they can obtain, without
regard to the rules of the association. The
wages to be paid for the work done must
be arranged by the laborer and the person
try whom he is engaged. No one else has
anything to do with it, and we are confident
that, by firmness and prudent arrangement,
an end may speedily be put to what is now
a very troublesome business.- The employ?
ers must, however; be prepared to protect
their laborers, whether white or colored,
from the violence of the disappointed stri?
kers. Without this nothing can be done.
Tin Situation at tho South.
Tiie South ought to be tolerably well
known by this time. It has been very tho?
roughly exploredk Its social and political
condition lias been investigated and discuss?
ed by Radical and Democrat, soldier and
civilian, correspondent and carpet-bagger.
Our States have been "guarded and regard?
ed," like the famous"Matthew Byles, of revo?
lution?r}' memory. They have been decom?
posed and recomposed, analyzed and recon?
structed. They have been subjected to
every variety of military surveillance and
rule, and of official manipulation. Where is
the Southern country that has been untra
versed by armies; the Southern plantation
that has been unvisited by foragers; the
Southern river that has not been blockaded
and penetrated by gunboats; the Southern
city that lias not been garrisoned by soldiers
and despoiled by sat raps from abroad. How
strange that such a region should still be a
land of fable-as impenetrable to the sober
light-of reality and experience as the blue
mists of the Northwest Passage or the
mocking mirages of Sahara.
The outside world hos studied the South
through a medium of prejudice. There ha3
been plenty of light; but the light itself is
untrue when refracted and discolored-when
seen through the ?pwfcwch? ot Mr?. Stowe
or the chronic jaundice of Mr. Sumner. As
to the testimony of natives-that has gone
for nothing! The creations of romance, or
the casual impressions of travel, have been
esteemed as more trustworthy than the ob?
servations of a life time.
Quite recently two business men of Bos?
ton, Messrs. Loring and Atkinson, have un?
dertaken to obtain and disseminate authen?
tic information in regard to the present
status and future prospects of the South.
Tiley have opened a corresi>ondence upon
this subject with not less than two hun?
dred Southern planters, brokers anti
factors, and have published a pamphlet con?
taining an abstract of this correspondence.
It will be to the advantage of the South and
of the country at large if evidence so unex?
ceptionable, and gathered from so many
sources, can secure a patient hearing.
What we are to expect and what we are to
do, can be decided upon with some degree
of confidence so soon as the conditions of
the social problem aro fairly set before us.
In the midst of tiie general disturbance of
the old social relations, three classes remain
distinct. The first is the respectable white,
tiie friend of the old order while that sur?
vived, and when it perished the determined
opponent of the Radicalism which sought to
reconstruct society after an idea, and made
the craziest experiments upon the self-re?
spect of Hie people and the public prosper?
ity. The second is the imported citizen,
white or colored, whom personal advantage
lured to a conquered and impoverished coun?
try. This class consists of legislators
to whom uegro equality was the engine for
political advancement, or of speculators
seeking profitable investments of capital, or
of bona fide settlers, of adventurous spirit,
who were invited southward by our fertile
fields of enterprise. The third is the negro,
to whom emancipation in some cases has
been a benefit; bat to whom, as a race, it
has been prejudicial-there being a general
drift of the laboring population away from
the plantations to squatter's farms, to cities
and even to the woods, and also a sensible
decrease of numbers through improvidence,
neglect of thc young and the sick, and gen?
eral irregularity of habit. The settled order
of tiie new regime will arise when thc best
of these last two classes combine with the
first os the members or an Anti-Radical
party. Thc precedent lias already been es?
tablished in Virginia and Tennessee, and
will be followed by theotherSouthern States.
One of tiie most striking changes thal has
taken place is observable in the depreciation
of plantation?. Thc featest difficulties have
been experienced ?.i the conduct of the pres?
ent system of labor; where fields have bi on
planted on shares the metayer does not look
beyond thc year, but systematically neglects
the repairs, drainage. &c, which prepare
thc field and storehouse for the production
and protection of future harvests. On the
other hand, where wages are paid the hire
liny: does not look beyond the week, or per?
haps the day: his work is shiftless and slov?
enly, and the pay received from time to time
encourages desertions. Besides, there has
been a diminution of laborers, arising from
the withdrawal of women and boys and girls
from thc field, and also from the increase in
the number of squatters and loafers, who
prey upon property In the cities and. stock
in thc country, and devote their leisure to
The Long Strike.
politics in both. That so much has been
dene by the Southern planter, under these
disadvantages, is a most creditable and en?
couraging circumstance. He lias had to ac?
commodate himself to new conditions; he
pays higher for provisions: he makes fewer
bales to the hand; but luckily for him the
hand does uot C03t so much and the bale
Yet it is evident that it is advisable for
the planter to contract thc range of Iiis in?
dustry to smaller fields, that can bc more
highly cultivated and more easily kept in
order. A reduction in the number of farm
laborers can also be provided for, as it is in
the Valley of Virgtuiu, by a division of labor
and au increase of agricultural appliances.
We need in the settlements of the country a
larger number of men who shall be devoted
to certain specialties, and who can be employ?
ed by the day or the week, as circumstances
may require. We also need the introduction
of a higher style of machiner}' than a single
planter can command-gins, threshing ma
I chines, cotton presses and thc like, which
can accomplish all the work in each depart?
ment which a whole community may re?
quire. The extension of the system of co?
operative stores into thc couutry would also
be of great service. As the supplies formerly
purchased in quantities at wholesale prices
are more aud more distributed among the
retail traders,' higher prices must be paid for
food, clothing and all the necessaries of life,
unless the planters by the co-operative sys?
tem can renew their connections with the
But ai these and the like needs revea'
themselves, we have no fear but that our
people can command the situation. The
Glastonbury thorn whioh lias already blos?
somed in the depth of winter, can endure
without difficulty the milder frosts and rig?
ors of the spring !
Another Ring of Carpet-Bagger*.
It seems that the example of the carpet?
bag government of our own State is not lost
upon the Radicals who rule the roast in
North Carolina. The present Governor and
Treasurer of the old North State have form?
ed a ring with sundry keen outsiders, und
are nov.- in the New York market manipu?
lating State bonds in a style that our
own ring might well envy. The modus
operandi is this: The ring men combine to
put the bonds down as low us possible and
then buy thom. As soon tis they buy them
the price of the bonds is put as high as they
can get it by combination, promise of pay
fog the interest, ?fcc., and thou they sell out
the bonds Which they bought at amere song.
For example, they buy the bonds at forty
cents on the dollar to-day; to-morrow or
next day they manage to run the bonds up
and sell out at fifty or fifty-two cents on the
dollar. This margin in the sales of hun?
dreds of thousands of dollars makes for?
tunes for the ring. Of course the people
of North Carolina have the privilege of pay?
ing the piper, while the nice little game is
going on. Tlteir taxes are nearly ten times
what they were before the war.
SOMEBODY lias suggested that Butler, bar
named the Beast, instead of meddling with
the Stowe-BjTon sensation, should address
himself to the task of writing up "The True
