Exodus of Skill?<I linbov.
The recoili meeting in London to prov
for tlie emigration of English artisans in
cates very significantly tho decadence
Great Britain. Her workmen have gi)
her prosperity. Their toils in the mine,
tlie forge, ut thc loom, have reared tlie f?
ric of her greatness. And now, amid I
abundance they have created, and uotwi
standing all their productive skill and th
eager clamors for work, they arc reduced

But where shall these men with their fa

"is of thc highest importance to the mot]
"country and thc colonies to encourage ci

.make much more largely available th
"hitherto thc almost unbounded resource;
"the British Empire." But there is one pr
ciplo that these petitioners seem to forg
It is this-that skilled labor is out of its c
ment in new countries. The artisuu wb<
capital, to a great extent, consists in refir
taste and delicate skill, is not thc qualiti

rude Canadian frontiers, in thc untrodd

There is, of course, a place for some,

But those workmen, with their families, coi
puted by Sir Jamos Lawrence at hundrc
of thousands, would soon overstock t
meagre colonial market. They need a fit
of wider scope and of different capabilities
such a field as we of the South can give.
Hitherto the large proportion of Engli
immigrants to America belonged to the n
ricultural class. Hence it was to this chi
that Professor Fawcett confined his observ
tions in the elaborate and masterly lectu
on emigration delivered at the University
Cambridge in 18G4. And the colonial dep
ties to tlie gathering at London seem
have confounded the mechanic, who nm
now emigrate, with the peasant who Ii
emigrated heretofore. They seem to imagii
that tlie former can be transformed into tl
latter by a more change of place-by a tran

plantation in Jamaica or a trackless fore
in Canada. Better that they should con
among a people who speak their Jangling
who inherit their traditions, who admire an
use the productions of their industry, an
who dwell in the temperate zone !
Most of the English immigrants have se
tied at the North. They are found in coi
sidcrable numbers in the States of New Yorl
Pennsylvai Illinois, Ohio, "Wisconsin an
Michigan-Hie relative proportion being i
tiie order named. Tlie minority are fount
in lessening numbers, in Florida, Arkansai
Oregou. North Carolina, South Carolina an
Mississippi. Jfor forty years Hie abulitio
agitation has turned this rich tide away froi
our borders. Especially has this ism bee
maintained among the workingmen of Lal
cas'.iire, a district which outnumbers two t
one thc whole population of thc State c.
Indiana; which has again and again suflere
i thc most terrible reverses, and which coul
have contributed during all that period tl)
most important additions to our mechanics
industry. Now that difficulty is removed
Lancashire can come among us, and w
have no fear that when Lancashire doe
come, it will any longer look upon' Hie Souti
through Mr. Bright's spectacles.
We respectfully call the attention of ou
immigration societies to the coudiiiou o
things iii England. Tho Britisli emigratioi
societies appeal for help to tlie government

to make the necessary appropriation. Ant

But we have not much to do iu order to ge
what we want from England. Let a pas
sage, however shallow, be opened for IhL
tide to our Southern fields, and it will cut ;
way for itself. One successful colony o
skilled English labor will stir every indus
trial community iu Great Britain. And a:
the Irish do, thc English will help theil
friends to come to a country whore tin
wages are four or five times greater than art
given at home. What our naturalized citi?
zens send over thc water, by private baud,
is of course uukuown. What they rcmittet
through banks ami large mercantile houses,
in thc ten years embraced ?ti the las; census,
was ten millions of pounds sterling. Thus
does immigration supply mid augment im?
Let public spirited capitalists and societies
avail themselves of the occasion which now
presents itself. Yonder in Lancashire are
the very men wc need-men of world-re?
nowned skill ami industry-dexterous and
delicate manipulators of thc cotton we pro?
duce-sinewy and practical explorers of snell
mineral wealth as our soil hus in its keep?
ing. They ure .starving. They are eager to
emigrate. They can be brought lo our
shores as cheaply ?is tlie German or Swede.
They understand our speech and can at Once
be set to work. They are prepared to intro?
duce such diversified industries among us
as will benefit every class. Lei us have
some of tuesu accomplished artisans in Hie
Stale of South Carolina.

declarations found in their editorial columns.
This will, it is hoped, tend to make the
people more homogeneous in thought and
united in action ; and we desire especially to
direct attention to the gratifying fact that
the one common note of the articles repro?
duced in our columns this morniug is the
expression of a determination to give the

"Cun i nt Literature.
EVERY SATURDAY : An Eclectic Weekly: Five
dollars per annum In advance. Fields, Os
good Sc, Co. : Boston.
As this is the season in which people who have
any literary leaning whatever are making
provision for their supply of intellectual pabu
lum tor the year, lt may be allowable to call th?
attention ol' such to a hebdomadal which ha!
many claims upon their patronage. We know
of no American Journal which promises mort
to its readers titan the enlarged and greatl)
Improved weekly Issue ol' the Boston publish
crs, Fields, Osgood & Co., which comes to ut
under the name of Every Saturday.
It is wholly an eclectic, and caters for us
with an epicurean nicety of taste and selectior
from thc rich and almost bewildering abun?
dance of English literature. For the past yeal
wc have been turning largely to the stately re?
sults of British culture for thc wherewithal tc
satisfy our mental cravings. We are not EC
ultra-American as to be unwilling to contess
that, after all, old mother Englund ls, lu mnnj
respects, a very satisfactory personage. Wt
feel a security when we arc dealing willi hci
scholarship that our Oner sensibilities shall nol
bc wounded, nor our fixed opinions contra
vencd, nor our tastes offended, nor the per?
vading aroma of classicism bc found wanting
It may be objected that there Is an absence o;
(latuuiivi'iLic nr mn ju ciel once. ?
there is in our stubborn preference for Axmins?
ter carpets, or Sheffield cutlery, or Lyons silks.
As we have said, w* have been accustomed
of lalo to entertain ourselves, not to speak ol
the graver reviews, with such foreign periodi?
cals as Frazer and Macmillan, and Thc Corn?
hill and London Soddy, aud the Dublin Uni?
versity Magazine, and The. Saturday Review,
'and we have been Hms able to institute a run?
ning comparison between them and tliecleclic
ism of Every Saturday: and wo can consci?
entiously say, that we think it has been ol the
most judicious and appreciative character.
Not a trenchant piece of criticism has appear?
ed in The ?ktturdmy Review, which has not
been reproduced here for us-not a terse bit
has dropped from thc pen of Matthew Arnold,
which these pages have not given us; not a
marvelous outflow of verse from thc whilom
tabooed Swinburne, Unit lias not been ro?
set for us; not a sonnet from Jean Injelow,
that Every Saturday has not embalmed in
in ils columns.
One of its prominent and new features is
thc introduction ot' prolusc Illustrations. To
some minds this maj-, al first blush, be sugges?
tive of frivolity, as the rage for illustration
bas become so ripe as to degenerate inion
positive vice. But if wo are to be furnished
with such artiste wood engravings as Hie por?
trait of Tennyson In one of the recent issues,
by all means Ictus have ns many as wc can,
They are absolute studies, and our Children
must of necessity have their eyes educated il
such models are pul before them. Compare
the management of light and shadow in the
picture of '-Thc Spanish Buy" with that of thc
same of thc steel engravings or thc stipples ol
many ol our magazines, which set on edge the
teeth of any one who lays claim to the least
iota of artistic taste.
So earnest are we in desiring to see the best
forms of culture Introduced among our South?
ern youth, that perhaps we may appear toe
urgent in our mode of pressing this admirable
periodical upon the public. It so, our apology
must bc thc conviction that the daily reading
provided for the fireside must tell upon Hie In?
tellectual status of the family.
Every Saturday is a cheap publication, when
we consider what It provides lor us. Five dol?
lars in Hie difference of a bonnet for youl
daughter, a pair of boots for young hopeful,
will make Hie circle around tile library table
happier, at least for one night every week dur?
ing the year. Is it not worth while tu try thc
