whereupon the latter called a meeting or the

Among other assertions, the order says that "it
, Is apostacy to differ honestly with the measures
of the President''-confirmed by a remark of
Pr?sident Wells that "we might as well ask the
-question whether a man had a right to differ
with the Almighty." Thus the doctrine was
> unqualifiedly asserted that'the Almighty and
the priesthood, so far as its official dic?
tates .were concerned, were to be accepted as
one and the same thing, on pain of excom?
munication from the church. The rejected mem?
bers have published a protest against the
action or the Council. Believing in free speech,
they hold that it bi an illegal and an un?
righteous use ot the holy priesthood to expel any
person from the church because they cannot con?
scientiously admit the divinity of any measure
presented 'by the priesthood. After asserting
their intention to continue In their business, they
prophesy that "men ?hall yet learn that the

-The Cuban agents at Washington are about to
pojbttsb ? statement of the effect of General Ces
pede's proclamation regarding the destruction or
"the growing cane. Up to this time the Cuban in?
surgente have hever attempted to destroy sugar"
plantations, except in the east end or the Island,
where there are very rcw. In the right season,
wheh there was a company ol Spanish soldiers
intrenched In each or the sugar works, a band or
twenty-five men was sufficient to fire the cane lu
.half, a dozen garrisoned estates almost within
?Bight or each other. When dry enough, and
before ready for the mill, thc cane-fields burn
like coal oil. Accldcutal flies have been known
to spread through nine mlle or ?mgar-canc
in three hours. The burning ordered, loug
planned and systematized, will take place up
to within an hour's ride or Havana. One hun?
dred thousand troops could not stop lt. When
about one hundred estates are burned, which will
occur the first week or operations, the Incredu?
lous sugar interest will begin to believe, and su?
gar will jump up ten per cent, at a time. A
glance at the memorial or thc Cubans shows:
?rat, that hair the sugar used in the United
States comes from Cuba; second, that sugar and
tobacco give the batted States over $25,000,000
revenue; third, that thc United States export
..$1L<H?,000 of provisions; fourth, rrom $5,000,000
to ?7.00J.OOO of machinery; firth, the profits made
In the United States by sugar refineries. The loss
to the United States is reckoned at a high figure,
but ls certainly $00,000,000 or $00,000,000, ami
that not for one year, but for the next and next,

for size and beauty ls not to bc surpassed by auy
In the world. This new institution is to be locat?
ed at thc foot 01 Thirty-fourth street, North River,
and ground will soon be broken. It will be a rec?
tangular structure, eight hundred feet in length
and two trundled in width, thus enclosing a mar?
ket, space 0. WO.OOO square feet, thc largest area
??'My bnliding on the Continent. There will be
tout' grand entrances, oue?n each avenue, one on
Thirty-fourth street and one on Thlrty
nfth street. On either side or these en?
trances are sereu other gates for ready in?
gress and egress, and. seventeen spacious win?
dows to light the stalls within. There are three
distinct roofs-the great central iron span of one
hundred feet and seventy-five feet in height, and
those of the two wings each thirty-eight feet high.
This central roof ls dome-shaped, surmounted by
a ventilating roor, broken at intervals by mina?
rets. From the centre or this roor and above thc
south and north gates rises the grand tower to
an elevation of one hundred and ninety-two feet
and of the most graceful form. This tower will bc
constructed altogether of iron, and, at an eleva?
tion of one hundred and forty feet, will present to
the cardinal points thc faces of a great clock.
This side elevation or the building promises to be
very imposing In Its immense sweep of eight
hundred feet. There wUl also be an outer mar?
ket on the river front, west or Twelfth avenue, a
building with open sides, tho roo! supported on
iron columns. This budding will be one hundred
feet by two hundred feet, and from Its western
end will project Into the river a pier three hun?
dred feet long by forty wide. The cost of the
building wUl be $1,000,000.
The Wages of Labor.
In connection with the proposition, now
assuming tangible shape, to unite the work?
ing classes o? the city in one general Pro?
tective Union, it is importaut to determine
whether the low rate of wages which now
prevails is due to oppressive combinations
on the part of the employ??, or to natural
The ranting demagogue roundly asserts
that all employers are tyrants, and all un?
combined workmen something more abject
than slaves. But tbe claptrap of the venal
declaimer will have no lasting effect; the
more especially us those who must bear the
brunt of the new movement, cannot afford
to make a false start by ignoring altogether
hard facts and the counsels of cool and so?
At the very outset, we must admit the riglit
of every employer to go into the market and
engage his workmen ut the lowest market
price. There is nc economic reason why he
should pay one farthing more than the ka. i
rate at which the men who snit him are wil?
ling and ready to work. All that can be
demanded of bim, as of the workingman, is
that he shall faithfully carry out the stipula?
tions of his bargain. This is a cold-blooded
view, it is true, of the connection between
capital and labor; but it is, nevertheless,
the true on?. The priests of Jthe new Evan?
gel may preach that ?an organized religious
"influence will hereafter induce employers
"to concede to their men, ^voluntarily, a
"larger share of their profit than any Trade
"Union could extort from them;" and it may
suit the' fanciful, who have no months of
women and children to fill, to accept the
calm assurance of M. Comte that the prov?
ince of the capitalist is "action and author?
itative direction." Until, however, the
final triumph of the Religion of Humanity,
most of ns will be disposed to confess that
the prime object of the employer is to accu?
mulate v. ?alth, not to do good to the work?
ingmen. Ethical considerations have little
practice.! bearing upon the relations of labor
At the first glance it may seem that the
freedom of the employer from all check or
restraint has had much to do with keeping
down the price of ' work. But there has
been no combination among the capitalists
to lower the remuneration of the worker.
They have only taken cheap labor as they
found it, and if one man refused to work for
the price whick. Waa. -?Bar?d thoy had no
difficulty in Hailing others who would an?
swer their purpose as well. There was no
combination to force higher wages, and a
half loaf was better than none.
The real cause of the present unsatisfac?
tory remuneration of workingmen in Charles?
ton may be found, we firmly believe, not in
a combination of employers, or an absence
of combination among the employed, but
in the want of capital to be used in new un?
dertakings, and in the unprofitable nature
of the investments already made and now
carried on. This is enough to make labor
cheap; for the supply is steadily growing in
volunii. while the demand is at least at a
The Linking or active capital of the State
was destroyed by the war, which also swept
away the slave capital, which enters into
thc calculation at this stage only as far as
it was a means of procuring monied cap?
ital, which, in one way or another, would
give employment to the laborer. * No foreign
capital could be procured ; the masses were
staggering under a load of debt; all that
could be relied on was the profit which
should gradually accrue from agriculture
and from commerce. The agriculturists
have been moderately successful, and have
relieved themselves of their heaviest embar?
rassments. They have a surplus, apart from
what has been paid away, out of the State
and in it, for implements and stock. This
surplus is hoarded np; it is dead; it gives
employment to no one, and, as a creator of
a demand for labor, might as well be at the
bottom of the Atlantic. And in the cities
there is the same chain of cause and effect.
Some capital has been gathered up; but we
bave now less than a million dollars of bank?
ing capital against twelve or thirteen millions
in 1860. There is not money enough to carry
on the purely mercantile branches of our
trade. We are hampered and restrained by
want of means, and there is no hope of an
immediate change for the bettor.
We have now partially accounted for the
absence of those expenditures in manufac?
tures upon which depend the fortunes of the
mechanic. The foundries and machineshops
have not been wholly idle, but it is open to
consideration whether they have not been
worked as much to the prolit of the work?
man as to that of the employer. Thc de?
mand for our manufactures has been limited,
and most master mechanics have done little
more than hold their own. Look also at the
condition of tire city as affecting the brick?
layers, carpenters, painters and workers iu
iron. The heart of Charleston was burned
out eight years ago, and what has boen done
to lill up the void ? Thc burnt district is
the burut district still. And this is suscep?
tible of reasonable explanation. Under thc
slave system more house-room was neces?
sary Utan is needed now. Loss of fortune
compels several families to occupy the same
dwelling. Daring tue last nine years the
white population-the house-building popu?
lation-lias not increl Taxe3 arc exor?
bitantly high, and in ci nsequence of tho
absence of demand for Koiise-room, rents
are exceeding y low. Real esiute ?loe-; not

?able to meet the actual wants of the mo?
ment. Still the bottom has been touched.
Our prospects grow steadily brighter. But
there is not yet active prosperity enough to
make labor richly profitable.
We have now sketched out the main rea?
sons which appear to account for the low
rates of wage3 of which our workingmen
complain. It is our desire to see them well
paid-the higher the better; but we ask them
whether they can expect, under the circum?
stances, to obtain more pay for their work
by a simple requisition that their pay be in?
creased? They may organize thoroughly
and prepare to seize the first opportunity
that offers itself for improving their posi?
tion. Can they, however, see their way
clear to obtain, at once, an increase in wages
which would swallow up the small margin
of profit now left to the employers, and
check, for a time at least, a great part of
the work now going on ?
