-The probable effect of emancipation in
producing the ultimate extinction of the black
race in America is foreshadowed in an elabo?
rate medical report recently presented to the
State Medical Society of Kentucky in relation
to the relative fecundity of women o? different
nations and conditions. In support of thc as?
sertion that labor tends to increase fecundity,
and indolence and luxury the reverse, many
historical illustrations were adduced, among
which were numerous statistics from various
parts of the Southern States, showing that in a
given population, where three children were
born during slavery, one, or less than one, is
born now, and that at least fiffy per cent, of the
children of the freed people die during the first
year of infancy. It is added that the immor?
ality of the emancipated slaves has even more
to do with their increased sterility than other
A Revolution on thc Se? Island?.
During the spring and early summer the
prospect for an unusually large crop of up?
land and sea island cotton was remarkably
bright. The area of land under cultivation
had been largely increased; fertilisers were
used more generously than ever before; the
long dry season encouraged the hope that
the caterpillar, if it came, would be power?
less for hann. The worm, as usual, made
its appearance, and swept over the cotton
region ; the destruction being sufficient to
dampen the spirits of the planters and drive
many of them to despair. The upland cot?
ton was injured by the drought more than by
the caterpillar; but on the coast and on the
islands the ravages of the insect, although
not so disastrous as in 1867 and 1868, have
tempted the planters to abandon altogether
the cultivation of long staple cotton. They
hoped to make a crop this year which should
compensate them for three years of ruinous
failure. With the seasons no fault could
be found. The stands of the growing plant
were as fine as could be desired. With all
this in their favor, the planters will only make
one half or a third of a crop. The calculation
now ls lhat the caterpillar will show itself
every year, the injury which it does being de?
termined by the character of the weather and
the early or late matuiity of the plants.
Experience shows that a short crop of sea
islands does not cause an advance in quota?
tions equivalent to the decreased produc?
tion ; and most planters know to their cost
that it.is often difficult to sell the long cot?
ton at lull rates, and tha't a forced sale in?
volves a heavy loss. Taking into account
the certainty of ?lie caterpillar, the uncer?
tainty of the yield, the unsatisfactory price,
and the difficulty of making prompt sales,
the sea island'planters have sound reasons
for giving up, In general, the growth of long
Intimate as is the connection between this
city and the sea* island cotton region of
South Carolina, the course of events hos
been watched with anxious care, and it has
seen with deep regret that the inexorable
logic bf events would lead to the relinquish?
ment of a pursuit which, in better times, had
made the planters wealthy and Charleston
prosperous. There was no immediate rem?
edy. The ramie, the olive, and the tropical
fruit, the orange grove and the sheep farm,
could not soon replace the fleecy staple of
the coast But practical planters have still
one arrow in their quiver, and we learn that
many of the most valuable -toast and sea
island plantations will next season be devo
.1 ?. Mt *-kimOm ..^
The planters who are tho prime movers
in this revolution believe that they can make
the cultivation of npland cotton exceedingly
profitable. In the first place it matures
more rapidly than the sea island. This will
lessen the danger of injury by the caterpil?
lar. On a plantation on one of the islands
a field of long cotton was planted on April
15th, and a field of upland two weeks later.
Both fields were "eaten ouC* by the caterpil?
lar. One bale to the acre hos already been
picked from the field of upland cotton. The
long cotton will not yield more than fifty
pounds to the acre. Taking the price of
the uplands at twenty-five cents and of the
sea islands at seventy-five cents, the short
cotton will return at least $100 an acre, and
the long cotton only $37 50 an acre. The
gain here is in the great rapidity with which
the short cotton reaches maturity in the rich
lands of the coast. Omitting the caterpillar
altogether, the comparison is nearly as fa?
vorable. Of long cotton the average yield
is about one hundred pounds to tho acre,
and of 3hort cotton, on the sea islands, thc
yield is expected to be six hundred pounds
to the acre. At the prices before mentioned,
the long cotton would produce in money
$75 an acre, and the short cotton $150 an
acre. There ls also the additional advan?
tage that with the same fa?oronc-thirdmore
short cotton than long cotton can be thor?
oughly cultivated. This alone will make an
important difference in favor of short cotton.
In turning their attention to upland cot?
ton the old planters count on making more
mouey to the acre than by continuing the
growth of sea islands. They will be able to
bring in their staple about September 1, and
will take the very cream of the prices. Be?
sides this, they will have *the certainty of
selling their cotton at any moment. By
dropping a quarter or a half cent they can
always find a purchaser, whatever the state
of the market.
This is, we believe, a moderate statement
of what is expected to be accomplished by
the change of cultivation in the long cotton
region. The planters who have taken the
initiative are men of mean3 and large expe?
rience, and they will give the new staple a
thorough and searching trial. They have
figures and estimates on their side, and if
they succeed, will have solved one of the
most difficult problems of the day. Should
theory and practice be found to agree, the
sea coast and sea island'} may again roll in
wealth; and in their riches, as of old,
Charleston will undoubtedly share.
The Horry News complains that Harry
County, with an area of 600 square miles
and a population of 10,000, has only one
post road and three postofficcs. Complaints
of thc same kind, more or less grave, are
heard in every part of the State. Why is it,
for instance, that a Charleston paper does
not reach Aiken until 8 P. M., while a pas?
senger starting at the same time readies
that place about 4 P. M. Soutli Carolina
needs more mail facilities, and, considering
the taxes anti the profit Republicanism makes
out of the State, it is rather hard that not
one of our representatives in Congress will
say a word in our behalf.
CufiTee and thc Carpet-Bugger.
The political cauldron is bubbling at a
great rate in Georgetown. Thc Radical
nominating convention settled upon one J.
A. Bowley, a New Englaud carpet-bagger,
as the cami ida te for the vacancy in the State
Legislature. The respectable colored peo?
ple were naturally incensed ; for they think,
as we think, that one respectable and intel?
ligent freedman is worth at least a score of
carpet-baggers. So the freedmen resolved
to put up a man who should represent them,
not New England. They have made John
Lucas, a native born freedman of Wacca
maw, the representative of the colored Re?
publicans. And, in the absence of an Anti
Radical candidate, we hope that Lucas, the
anti-carpet-bagger, will whip New England
out of the field.
The Orangeburg News, speaking of the
strife in the Radical party which gave the
Conservatives their grand success in Ten?
nessee, says :
"80 in their divisions lies the only chance
for the great Anti-Radical party in our State.
At each of these conventions there ls this striie
between would-be candidates ol the party.
And wc remember at the election of school
commissioner last spring there were even two
candidates out, each claiming thc votes of the
party. If the Anti-Radical party had only then
been liberalized upon the conciliatory platform
advocated by THE CHARLESTON NEWS and by
ourselves, they could have secured the elec
tlon of their candidate. These divisions will
occur In these nominating conventions again.
Let us be ready by having conciliated a suffi?
cient number of colored voters to secure the
election of Antl-Radlcals, and thus take one
step to redeem our State."
WE BEO to say that our proposition to sup?
ply THE DAILY NEWS and Jibe "Rural Caro?
linian " for one year for six and a half j
dollars, or THE TRI-WEEKLY NEWS and the
"Rural Carolinian" for four dollars, does
not apply to persons who are now subscribers
to THE NEWS. The two publications will be
furnished on these terms only to persons
whose names are not now upon our subscrip?
tion lists. _ _
Ont Sumter correspondent says that the
principal Radical candidate fur the vacancy
in the State Legislature from Sumter County
eau neither read nor write. This will not
prevent him from voting on tax bills or from
drawing his per diem.
