The Prop of the Nation.
There is a good and a bad side to almost
every question. Had the South been the
possessor of a myriad mills and factories, for
the enemy to burn and destroy; had her
plains been dotted with smiling villages, for
the invader to lay waste; had her people en?
joyed thc gauds and pomp3 which a raider
may spoil and bear away, the recovery of
the South, t from the losses and excesses of
war must have been slow and insecure. But
thc wealth of the South was in lier lands and
lier labor. The barns might be burned, the
gin-houses might be destroyed, the slave of
yesterday might become the freeman of the
morrow; but so long as the soil was left and
the labor was left, together with courage and
patience to eke out the want of cash re?
sources, the South could still rise from the
dusts of war, and show, in the rapidity of her
new birth, a power and strength which, even
to her own people, were a revelation and a
The agricultural bent of Southern industry,
which was their chief weakness in war,
enabled the Southern people to gather up
force and energy with unexampled rapidity.
This is now admitted by the most sagacious
of Northern politicians and Northern jour?
nalists, and when a paper like the Boston
Post speaks of the cotton crop as the "com
"mercial support and savior" of the Union,
we'may feel that we have fought the good
fight and soon shall possess the wages of
success. The Boston Post says:
"Last year's cotton crop is estimated by in?
telligent and careful statisticians to be three
! million bales. At twenty-five cents per pound,
M|is equal to a crop ot six million bales before
xhe war. Its entire value, allowing four hun?
dred and sixty pounds to the bale, ls three
hundred and forty-five millions of dollars. All
this is hard cash, earned by the single product
of a single section in a single seasou. On such
a basis, with even a fair series of good seasons,
that section would outstrip every other in the
rapid accumulation of wealth. Of these three
million bales, it is allowed that two millions
one hundred thousand are for export,-yielding
the sum ol $241,500,000 in gold. Half of this
has been shipped abroad between the last of
September and the last of February, leaving
thc other half, which is equal in money to over
one hundred and twenty-one millions ot' dol?
lars, to be exported between this and Septem?
ber. That is to sa}', cotton will supply us in
our loreign trade, for the next six mouths,
that amount of coin with which to regulate our
balances. It is considered preferable to coln
because it is a leading staple of the world's
This is the secret of the unexpected sta?
bility of the national credit, and of the de?
cline in the premium on gold. Cotton has
enabled U3 to command all thc foreign goods
which were required. The constant pres?
ence of American cotton upon the European
market sustained the general credit, and
now an expected increase in the crop of 1870
strengthens the downward tendency and
makes the situation especially hopeful. The
Post says :
"We touch bottom again, in matters of trade
and finance, as soon as we come to a lull crop
of colton. That has twice proved itself our
commercial support and savior. Intelligent
merchants and the more comprehensive minds
among our public men so understand it.
Strange as it appears to dispassionate eyes,
the Congress that has been doing its best to
cripple, confuse and obstruct ail healthy finan?
cial operations, by its jargon of phrases, its
medley of schemes, and its plots ol'personal
and partisan profit, is Hie very same Congress
that has been revengefully bent on keeping
the cotton-producing States in a condition ot
servile degradation, on repressing every at?
tempt of their property-holding citizens to es?
tablish order and a well-regulated industrial
system, and on driving away capital trom their
valuable fields by destroying the growth ol'
confidence and trust. The object was nothing
less than the absolute degradation of the peo?
ple that give those States all the character and
mporlancc which they ever enjoyed. Mr.
sumner publicly announced that thirty years, !
:he term of a generation, was none too long
.o keep them suppliants, dependants and ser?
rants outside thc Union. His statesmanship J
must have borrowed the eyes of the mole when
lt inspired such an anathema on an entire sec- ,
Lion of the couutry. ft did not reckon on thc ,
vast productive capacity of their favored soil j
ind climate, and the great staple which they j
done can supply for the resuscitation ol our }
jommerco. It lorgot to allow for those press
ng necessities in the national finances, for
.vhose instant alleviation we should be com?
pelled to turn to the South as we had done
This is no exaggerated statement. All ?
.hat the United States lind, as the basis of -
lutioual credit, was thc crop of the South,
"otton and sugar, rice and tobacco, were all- I
powerful in thc marts of Europe. Plymouth ;
Rock was a drug in the market, and there
,vas no sufficient demand for the grain of the !
Western fields, or the provisions of Porkop- ;
)lis. At any moment, the tide might tum j
md five-twenties by the bag full be thrown ,
?pon a decliDing market. But King Cotton
vas too strong for war and for peace, for <
political agitation aud gossip of repudiation. |
V. country, one of whose crops had a specie 1
.alue for export of over two hundred mil- 1
ions, could not be bankrupt and lost, but 1
vhile Europe relied on the cotton bale and
ogar hogshead, Congress did its best lo cut
ts own throat and ours. I
Thc loss of political hope but turned the ,
Jouth the more to hard and honest work, ]
md now thc whole Union depends for its i
ufety, for its stability, for its commercial
xistencc, upon the despised and abused -
kates of Hie South. Ours is the strength
md the force and the money power. With- ,
?ut the cotton and Hie sugar ami tobacco of I
hese Southern States, the North ;:nlWest ,
ire nothing. Without the North and West, 1
he South is stronger t?iau nov,-. Ibis
is our revenge. The South, "which was
kicked and cuffed till lips grew pale
and hearts were weary, now holds the
balance of financial and political power.
And this is certain. The South will use that
power more generously and in a broader
spirit than thc "mighty North," the conque?
ror, has ever felt or known.
Somebody suggests that Brother Whitte
more, in view of the discreditable transac?
tions in which he has lately been caught, be
dubbed "Wicked Ben." That the soubriquet
is appropriate in itself no one will be dis?
posed to deny; but, in common justice to
the respectable and intelligent porker who,
though he habitually exhibits preter-pig-like
acumen in playing seven-up, has never yet
been accused of stocking the cards or of
turning up a too frequent Jack, we must pro?
test against such an application of a name
to which he enjoys a prior claim.
The Tumble in Price?.
The action of Stewart and Claflin, the
kings of thc New York dry goods tracie, in
bowing to the approach of specie payments
by a prompt and general reduction of prices,
is but thc forerunner of what must speedily
follow, in the case of dealers, big and little,
in all kinds of commodities, all over the
country. But the movement which, at the
North, must bring many to grief, will, in the
South, hardly have any more serious result
thau to lop off the excess of profit. And
the masses of the people, North and South,
will alike hail with joy the change which is
to m?ke living cheaper, and to give to their
greenbacks the purchasing power of hard

ASEAROS KASSIS. THE COPT. By Edwin DeLeon.
We are indebted to our friend and quondam
countryman, Mr. Edwin DcLeon, for a very
exciting and agreeable novel with the above
The object oi the book seems to be a lively
presentation of life, manners and customs of
the Orient, in which he has, in thc main, well
"The Copi" is crammed with incident,
enough, indeed, to furnish forth many volumes
such as our numerous and practiced writers
produce daily for our amusement. This re?

as an artist, ls yet a praise- to tho felicity of
Many of us have not enjoyed Mr. DeLeon's
privilege of seeing and knowing the Moslem
at home in thc varied phases of his luxurious
repose, his action if fitful, fatal, and oft-'?mes
to our Christian idea, demoniac. But we have
had capital authors, who have given us pic?
"This land where all things always seem thc
since the days of Haroun al Raschid. Every?
body reads yet Lady Mary Montague's letters;
few persons can forget Anastasius, Eothen,
Warburtons Crescent and the Cross, Kingsley's
Hytatia, or Curson's Monasteries of thc Le?
vant-pronounced by Ruskin the most delight
ful book of travels extant. We admit that we
have gained somewhat of knowledge from
"The Copt" in Eastern manners.
Monsieur de Lesseps, with his Suez Canal
triumph, making old Egypt thc thoroughfare
of modern Europe, bids lair to change in many
things this aspect of ever recurring "Arabian
Nights," which meets us at all points in books
now written. We see already In "Aboul's Fel?
lah" the progress of European civilization, in
the amelioration of the condition of lils class.
And the "Fellah" of Monsieur Abouts fancy ls
outstript in thc race of modern progress by
our Copt, who drives in Cairo his Knicker?
bocker wife In a New York trotting wagon;
Mr. Kassis docs not escape the pang, ?us of old,
(when father Abraham for thc nonce prayed
his wife to pass for his sister,) he meets the
lurid eye of the Basha fixed in unholy admira?
tion npon thc unveiled beauty. The expedient
now lo escape this danger ls simple-they have
only to take a steamer for Marseilles. They
are too slow, and we have the old story of ab?
duction, Ac, well told.
Graphic and strong are his descriptions oP:
those contests between birds, animals and
men. Witness the hawk and the dove, the
wild dogs, the crocodile and the Syrian. The
cobra scene we find a trifle too melodramatic.
We commend this book on thc whole, but
we do not like Mr. DeLeon's hero; neither do
we affect his heroine very much. It smacks
too much of the ill-fated, Ill-mated Othello and
Desdemona, and wc agree with our prime fa?
vorite, Miss Priscilla Primmins, the English?
man was a "oon parti" too good to be thrown
over for the gorgeously arrayed Copt. We do
not understand why he combined thu baro?
netcy and peerage in his own person, however.
Sir Charles says clever things apropos of the
female suffrage question. La carri?re ouverte
lux talcns (et aux femmes.) We have a good
laugh with the donkey boys; and we compare
the "Fellah's" dinner given to bis English lady
love, with our "Copt's" diner a la T\irque, like?
wise given to his, and we find most to admire
in the latter, with its rare ruby, the device of
the dove and amulets, Ac. Both, of course,
beginning with thc inevitable lamb Btuffed
with Pistachio nuts.
We have marked for favorable notice the
portraiture of the aged Copt; the venerable
Jew, an Israelite of thc ancient and highest
type; thc Sheik, that honest son of thc desert,
joodand patriarchal, but who cannot resist
when tempted-stealing a One horse.
Space falls us to cite one half of the good
things we hoped to bring forward. We can?
not altogether pass, however, the Princess
Wezle, too like in n?mc and conduct lier French
sisters ot the "Tour de Nesle." Lock and key
seem insufficient to secure thc virtue of the
veiled Egyptian. Arter all, as Lady Mary says,
