Hamilton, ol Texas, said the war was going on in
the South only. Persons who bad been disarmed
at the conclusion of the rebellion were victims of
" rebel animosity. The adoption of thc Bingham
amendment, he held, would be the death-knell to
the Republican party lu every Southern State,
because unless prudently curtailed, the rebel lu
fluence would practically nullify thc new State
constitutions and set at naught the beneficent
measures of Congressional legislation. He fa?
vored the amendment suggested by Drake,
to require military. intervention for the sup?
pression of secret organizations, and de?
nounced the organized system of outrage,
arson and murder, which ls now prevalent
in thc late rebellious States. This state or things
showed the futility of attempting to establish
civil government there. It had been argued
tint the organized resistance to UK? laws were
owing to the stringency of thc reconstruction
measures. His answer wa3 that like powers had
been delegated to commanders of all military de?
partments throughout the country, and that the
condition of the South was wholly exceptional.
The Senator rrom Massachusetts (Wilson) had es?
timated that the number or men murdered there
since Lee's surrender exceeded the mortality
1st in any eagigeraon: during the war. This es?
timate was a very moderate one. His own belief
was that not less than ten thousand loyal hearts
in the South had ceased to beat, simply because
they we:e*ioyal to their country. The trivial
number of arrests in comparison with this ag?
gregate of crime would show th;license for these
outrages in a vicious and disloyal pablic senti?
ment. The practical operation of the Bingham
amendment would secure to thc rebel element
a remodelling of State constitutions, and the late
rebel States would, in 1972, again be found rally?
ing around the national Democratic councils; but
the Republican party would never oatlive the
mihi": of the total abandonment of the colored
raoe in the South, and it was too late to reverse
its record in behalf of that people. If not sup?
ported by the national arm, the colored loyalists
in the South would surely bite the dust; he could
not live there. He (Hamilton) for one, if the prin?
ciple of the Bingham amendment prevailed,
would not dare return to his own cDmmunltj-.
He did not believe any active Republican would
da> e live there; he knew the people th?re: he was
born and raised among them; had lived all his
life among them, and they wera the most bload
tiiirsty set or cut-throats God had ever permitted
on his rootstool.

The Justices of thc United States Su?
preme Court tn a Passion.
A Washington letter, or Tuesday last, says:
There was a very lively sc DUB at the Supreme
Coart this morning, the oldest lawyers practicing
there liai...g witnessed nothing like it in their
day. It arose in connection with the legal tender
case, which it was expected would again be
argued on its merits. At the proper hour. Mr.
Potter, of New York, who is counsel in one of the
cases on which the court had consented to hear
further argument, in effect usked a postpone?
ment for the reason thal he scolor counsel was
engaged elsewhere, and another was abesent on
account of Illness. The Attorney-General respond?
ed against postponement, and In the course ofhls
remarks spoke or the necessity tor an early hear?
ing and decision, because the country is disturb?
ed and will continue disturbed until the whole
question at issue is settled. He also alluded to
the fact that these I wo cases involve points some?
what Uko those in Hie case recently decided, and
in reply to Mr. Potter, denied that any order had
been made which precluded a rehearing ou the
point then decided.
The Obier Justice here interrupted to say that
according to his recollection such an order liad
This was said with evident retiing, and Jus?
tice Miller remarked with equal feeling, t!<at he
knew of no such order.
Justice Nelsou, came to the rese?e oftheCbier
Justice, and Justice Davis spoke up, saying that
he concurred with Justice Miller. The Chief Jus?
tice repeated his statement with emphasis and
hardly-suppressed passion, and then upon the
suggestion of Judge Davis, who remarked that it
was not worth while to bandy words, lt was de?
cided that thc cases might go over to next Mou
The Attorney-General meantime bowed to the
recollection of the Chief Justice, and merely ex?
pressed his regret that in a mailer of this impor?
tance there was no record.
The point on which this dispute, so astonishing
in the Supreme Court, turns, seems to be, whether
there was or was not such an order made when
Mr. Evans was attorney-general, as prevents a

How thc Equestrian Statue Project

an equestrian statue of General Grunt at the
Soon after the inaugural ion. it will be remem?
bered, a subscription was started for the purpose
mentioned. Its cost was estimated at $55,eeo,
and Hie idea was to raise this amount among the
-personal friends or thc General"-to wit, those
wno hail received or expected official favors at
his hands. The first person who subscribed wa.?
(?enerat Sherman, wno put his name down for
$1000; A. T. Stewart was applied to, but refused
to contribute. A lew ol ber individuals of wealth
and uote were called upon, but did not respond
with cheerful hearts or generous hauds. A con?
sultation was then held among the projectors, at
which it was resolved to -try again." Forty
thousand dollars were required to make up the
necessarv amount; Fisk and Gould were "inter?
viewed"" hy the Indomitable "solicitor" or the
"ueedful," and he felt authorized to
pledge those gtutlcmeu for thia amouut.
Though to be furnished by them, however, lt was
not to be entered on tue papers In their names,
but to be judiciously distributed among a number
or Mends. But lo '. the gold excitement was ap?
proaching. Grant and Fisk were-enjoying each
other's sweet society and unlimited confidence,
while Corbin was secretly devising thc deep strat?
agems which culminated in the "blue Friday" or
September. And it now appears that thc un?
pleasantness between Grant and Fisk, resulting
from that gold corner, led to the repudiation or
the liberal subscription for the great work of art,
which was to commemorate at once private grati?
tude and public worth, ami "Mack," deploring
that the enterprise should be thus nipped in the
bud, makes an appeal to these friends who have
been recipients or Piesirteutial favor to -come

** OUIl -BELOVED STATE. >>
Thc Solemn Protest of an Indignant
Ti his Excellency, Governor Scott :
SIR-Living as I do in seclusion, and almost
in obscurity, your Washington speech has but
lately reached me. The "State" you have in that
speech and in other of your enactments so grossly,
misrepresented, is my injured mother. My first
nourishment wa3 from hex- bosom; and "life"
must be extinct when the "disposition" ceases to
resent her wrongs. You once profanely called her,
"our beloved!" She turns from you with aver
sion, and she declines your allegiance. South
Carolina knows her own "legitimate" offspring,
and she honors those brave children of her adop?
tion, who, in good faith, and with an honest pur?
pose, share so nobly her destiny, her troubles and
her trials. You belong to none of these classes.
As the least worthy of her sons, I come, with a
wounded spirit, but with a just indignation, to
enter her feeble though solemn protest against
all that you have said touching her condition, her
character, and her people.
Y'ou, General Scott, are neither the Duke of
Grafton nor Sir William Draper, and I, most for?
tunately for yourself, nm not Junlus ! Yet, if sir
j Phillp Francis, thc reputed Junlus, were on
earth, and had thc misfortune to be a sufferer In
this ailllcted country, he could not but be struck
with the extraordinary delusion, or "intention,"
which seems to follow your Excellence '3 ill-or?
ganized mind, through all the mazes of political
trickery, and of "metaphorical confusion." When
an unsound or Insane imagination permitted you
to believe that, In your misguided administration,
you actually had a " right " so to abuse the
"pardoning power," as to bewilder those over
whom you rule, and to render it doubtful wheth?
er wickedness or Ignorance prevailed, the masses,
whom it was your duly to protect, stood confound?
ed and amazed-hoping against "hope"-for
some gleam of light, If not from the throne itself,
from some secret influence "greater tTuin the
throne 1" They remained in silence I because
there are sometimes feelings In every human heart
so revolting to virtue, that the oppressed hesitate
to speak, and plead to themselves "the poverty
of the language" as an excuse for keeping their
own dismal counsel I What ls palpable and un?

Has your Excellency ever found leisure to read
the conetltutioa ? When daring those four years
(to which you so eloquently alluded in your Wash
inton speech) you labored so valiantly on the

such a document? Or were your studies confined
to Gulliver and Munchausen ? And when you
undertook to exhibit yourself at the seat of gov?
ernment, as a "live specimen" of an "accomplish?
ed executioner," did it ever occur to your Excel?
lency's "brave thought," that a speech, so full of
"history," might find its way to these uncivilized
regions; and that even, under the tyranny you
would inanguratc. men miglu venture to ask "If
there be no difference between thc wildness of a
ferocious fiction" an? the sadness of a bitter
Some weeks since, a writer In thc Courier,
signed "South Caroliua," presented a few strik?

"Hight" and "Power." TKese were suggested by
an obsolete "Paper," known as the Constitution
of the Cnited States, In which the attributes of
the highwayman, and the usurpations of your
Excellency, were placed In very apposite relations
to each other; but at that period your Excellen?
cy's mania had not reached the fullness of its
"fury." lu your researches as a ?-Jurist," yon
had not -discovered the Winchester rifle as the

tution* I ask now if, dutiDg those nights of
watchfulness, when you did or did not serve on
Me picket line, lt ever occurred to you, a? a sol?
dier, to contemplate the consequences of a course
so barbarous and vicious ? Have you ever seri?
ously thought of the consequences of inciting to
antagonism the peaceful majority race, and arm?
ing them with this formidable weapon, so that a
minority, bora free, might pay the penalty, in
sackcloth and ashes, for uttering a word deemed
to be offensive during the riotous debaucheries of
a licentious mob. and thai mob, resolving itself
Into an "august" majority of privileged voters ?

tect and defend the constitution of tkis State,
and of thc United States; sworn to sec that the
laws arc faithfully executed; sworn to keep the
pence yourself aud to co upc! others to do so like?
wise; sworn to see that thc "commonwealth"
comes to no harm, ever thought of thc inevitable
results of your diabolical appeal in defence of
those who were never In danger/ "Think of
these things," General Scott, and then repeat,
with sanctimonious gravity, if you have the
hardihood to do so, words made "obscene" by your
exception of them, "Our beloved State !" God of
our Fathers : of Rutledge. Marilin, and of Moul?
trie, of Lowndes, of Chcves and Calhoun. South
Carollua "the beloved State," of a renegade and a

Above a!!, and before all-If the down-trodden,
conquered, insulted community, of which / am
one, as you have publicly, ignobly and uncharita?
bly denounced them, is made up of unprincipled
murderers and professional assassins, have you
ever thought of explaining how it ls that their
most bttt?r enemy, their most unsparing calum?
niator, their heartless and perfidious magistrate,
should so miraculously escape ? How the mau
who deserves their vengeance more than any
other who desecrates the soil, should go at large,
"unwhipped of justice i" That he should do so in
per.'cct safety-with no arra lirted to strike a
tyrant to the earth-and without a hair of his
uuholy head being injured cr disturbed ? And
have you ever counted the "cost" that yourself
as that very man would surely pay, if thc slan?
ders uttered in your Washlugton speech were
any other than "false," from Alpha to Omega *

My Dear Mrs. McFarland-It was a good inspi?
ration which led you to write me, and to believe
that 1 wanted to hear from you. A dozen times
Blncc you went away I have set down wita the ex?
press and absolute purpose ol writing you and
then some dreary manuscript interposed, and my I
Interestlug pen labored till lt was so tired that lc
had no power of purpose 1?re. My work ls or that
discouraging order that consumes time and
patience, and exhausts the forces without build?
ing any monuments of progress. Revising, cor?
recting and mending, comparing and rejecting,
ure eminently useiul and greatly easier than
writing, of which I am not fond, but rather
dreary. 1 have been so very busy that I have not
written very much since you went- away. Beside
my work tor the Tribune 1 do a eenuin
class of book reviews for the Independent, and
go about willi luiuds, so very full that 1 have sel?
dom opportunity to take up private letters; for,
us I dare say you know already, but as lt is the
centrairactorthcunlvcrse.it will bear repeti?
tion; 1 am housekeeping. I obtained that bliss?
ful condition, to my extreme surprise, on the 1st
of May. We heard or the honse but two days be?
fore, took it and bought one tea-kettle at once
Tor myself. 1 am most pleased. I enjoy Hie free?
dom and largeness, aud hospitality of home,
and, as we tn mt live lu shells through all this
mortal pilgrimage, it was so much more comfort?
able to have them of the largest and pleasantest. I
Our house ls very pleasant, as you shall see
wheu you come back. But for this ignorant
present, I would wish myself with you In the
smallest farm house that ever took root la the I
cleft of the hills. For know, 0, mountain nymph,
that thc weather is terrine; doors and windows
swing wide; thc generous palm leaf Is plied, but
we cannot raise the ghostliest breeze from Hunh?
orn peak, or western lake, or eastern ocean.
June in thc country, with a wreath or roses, and
wblte hands s uttering dews, and June in town
lu thc brassy helmet or August, with
sunbrowncU lingers and blinded eyes, are
no kin to tither. Last week tho Tribune
sent me on a flying vlatlt to Saratoga,
Lake George and Lake Champlain, the
fruits whereof you shall have when they become
Immortal in Tuesday's Issue. Saratoga ls dread?
ful, but the ladles and thc far-away bills ailed
one with delight. You know I am a cockney of I
cockneys; know nothing of the heart and wonder
or country lire; have a scattered peak or two, sud
yet to ine'they arc wonderful things, not to talk
about unless "thc dweller be very line. Constant
companionship with native belittles him. I think
men grow blind and deaf to the glory that ls
above their heads and beneath their feet; don't
they? I walk In the dark, but lt seems to mc
that meadow and mountain, roses and river, are
more to mc than to Hie man whose estutc they
are a part. And as art and culture must teach
me the wonderful secrets and charms or nature,
so I taney must city lire train me Into country
uses. I have no taste for wigwams, but all
through the soft spring aud passionate summer
un eagerness for woods and waters possesses me.
Just now I am Imprisoned In the loop of the edi?
torial scissors, and om so base that I shall
doubtless continue to bc a bnndmau all
the season, save when the Tribune lets
mc out to do it io Journalistic warb?
ling; keeping a string about me that I may not
fly "too far. If lt should believe lt a vital element
of the success or the paper to have two or three
letters from the White Mountains, I am the per?
son to sacrifice my ease in its interest, and I
shall find some practicable route through Shcl

ls out or town. Mrs. Ward has gone, and the
Sinclairs went last week, and everybody else
whom I know had gone before.except Mr. Rlchanl
son, who lias a room here, and so delightfully
agreeably aud gosd natured that not even tills
dreaded weather makes him cross, which ls say
luz a great ?leal for his Christian discipline. Mr.
Greeley hus almost finished his book, and then he
ls going away, probably to Saratoga to trip the
light fantastic toe. Mrs. Greeley has had a hemor?
rhage and is very feeble. For myself I sm very
well; rather I Ired, having made my Jaunt
in three days and written three letters. 1 hope
von will st?idv toward the stage. If not for the
stage, thia summer. That goal seems to mc so In?
evitable and so desirable. If you cultivate your

from my inmost soul. 1 am very weary to-niejit,
and so worn and uncomfortable, that I have

FROM JIKS. SINCLAIR TO MRS. M'FARLAND.
WASHINGTON. February 21.
My Dearest Friend-Sirs. C. read your letter to
me this morning, and lam almost heart-broken for
vnu. My dear, what are you going to do?
Whatever von decide upou, of course, your
friends, vour true mends will accept, but I do
hope you will act- with firmness, willi decision.
lt seems to me that one great effort ls only a
question of time, and the sooner it ls made the
better lor you and thc children. Don't Tor one
moment louger entertain that morbid Idea that
von are responsible ror Hie life or one who ls sure
to break you down completely and ruin, perhaps,
your club ren, if they continu?lo live with him.
lt arl!) kill you to live this way, and you must not
do lt. These d?ar little bovs must bc taken care
of, and who can do it but their own dear mother.
Mv dear Abby. 1 love you like a sister, or I should
not write tills. Anything that I can do for
you I will cheerfully di. Do no: despair; you
have health, youth and good friends, and all
your friends, without exception, will sup
port you. I have no doubt of your sue
cess on the stage, but. should you Hud
t.Mit too trying for your health, you can
do equally well by writing. I think you are very
modejt in vuur estimation. 1 think you write
better than almost any one I know, and should
you give your time to it I have no doubt, you will
exceed any American female writer in a very
short time. I mast suggest ono thing, and that
is to get rercy away rrom bis rather as soon as
possible. H seems a long time since I left you,
and I am quite ashamed of not writing to you be?
fore; but our time has been wonderfully filled un
with Washington gaiety, and I ara very apt, as
you know, to neglect writing to my friends when
1 feel certain that all ls well. I have not been
Jealous, although you have written to Mrs. C. sev?
eral times. I love her too much not to be willing
to give her more than half of what 1 would re?
ceive. Is she not good and charming? Howls
dear little Danny? I wish he would come to
Mary's birthday, the 9th of March. You must
come and bring Percy. We may not be home be?
fore the sth, but I don't dare write that home.
Remember that Pearls not your friend. I hope
you will neglect her In my absence. Now, my
darling, do write soon. I aimil hope for some?
thing definite. Y'our devoted friend, C. A. S.
I.ETTEU FTtOM MRS. CA I. FIO CK.
FRIDAY MORNING. Februarv 22.
What can I say to comiort thee? My' heart
bleeds over thee. Would I could enfold thee for?
evermore, my darling. If lt were not for Percy
I should take you away and keep you as soon as
I go home. I do not suppose Mr. C. would let
inc keep him. My precious, you must make your
decision, lt ls profanation for you to stay with
that man. You shall not. No woman ought to
put her womanhood to open shame as you have
been forced to do for years. It is most cruel,
most devilish. You cannot work-you cannot
advance-you eau be certain of no future for
yourself and children while you stay. There ls
no justice, no reason, no hope In your doing lt.
Mydarltug, you will leave him scathless. The
world is more generous than we think about
these things. Every thoughtful man or woman
will Justify you, and you can shake ott your
shackles and work with free hands. It ls dread?
ful to have you light against such odds. I think
you could live, youraeir and Percy, for what you
earn nor/, ir you can only be free, so that you
can Improve, your salary will lucrease. It ls
wonderful that you have been able to do anything,
with your disabilities, and I do uot think that
now you may do so much. Oh. do leave him, my
darling. It ls BO wrong that you should stay
MU Darling-vre have just received Mr. RVs
letter. I am so glad that you have left M. Do
uot, 1 beseech you, return. Do not let any meek?
ness or mercy possess you. lt ls happy that
stroke bas lallen, no matter what heart break
comes with lt. Yon should be glad that vou
suiTcr, il your sufferings would keep you away
rrom him. My darline ror whom I would die, do [
not so wrong your womanhood as to go back.
Von must not, shall not. When I some back you
shall come to me and stay. I will have lt so. I will
come to-morrow ir you need me. Write me, my
darling, all things; even ir yon are distracted
write; it will calm and help you. AH my heart
flows tn yo*. I would help you, guard you, heal
you II I could. My darling,you cannot be mlsuu
utood. I, a proud woman, tell you that only by
leaving him can you Justify yourseir to yourself
and the world or noble people. My darling, my
money and purse and grier are yours forever.
Vou will not hesitate to come to me, ror you love
me. This ls a poor uotc. I have had to scrawl
in pencil what I have not had time to say In Ink.
To-morrow, ll you're better, I shall write you a
better letter. All my ncart ls yours. Let Mr. R.
help yon-he ls good and strong. Stay where J
you are till I come; then come to me. My darl?

The reading or the letters was listened to with
breathless attention. *
Eighth Day-Continuation of thc Testi?
mony for th? Defence.
The court-room was crowded on Wednesday,
including even more ladles than on the previous
Several letters written by Mrs. Calhoun to Mrs.
Richardson McFarland were read. They were
similar la character to those already read. .The
recorder Intimated that the counsel would do well
to refrain from reading letters merely relating to
Mrs. Calhoun's personal reelings, and not directly
bearing on thc case.
Judge Davis said he supposed thc prosecution
could not object to the reading of the letters
which the prisoner had pluudered from thc trunk
of his wife, and which the defence seemed to think
supported some theory or theirs.
Charles W. Eastwood, the first witness to-day,
was a woollen dealer; knew McFarland; did net
recan? him lu bis right mlud; prisoner bad orten
told witness that he had not had a good night's
sleep In six weeks, aud wished he was dead.
Sanford B. Wakeman was thc next witness;
knew prisoner; regarded him frantic on family
George Wellings, a walter at a restaurant, also
test Med thai be k: ew McFarland; thought him
frenzied; used often to hear him muttering to
The Recorder asked Mr. Graham to Indicate
how long he Intended to take accumulating evi?
dence as to McFarland's peculiarities.
Mr. Graham said they Intended to prove by
overwhelming evidence that the defendant was
deranged on the subject of his domestic troubles,
lu sueh a case as the present lt was Impossible
for them to know wheu they had given enough or
Michael Callahan, employed in the same res?
taurant as the previous witness, gave corrobora?
A statement made by the brother of the pris?
oner to witness lu regard to the strange conduct
of McFarland was, arter argument, ruled out as
Several other witnesses were examined, and all
testlflcd that they regarded McFarland as one J
whose mind had lost Its balance.
Previous to thc court adjourning. Judge Davis
stated that the couusel for the prisoner had, he
presumed unintentionally, done an Injustice to a
party who was entirely outside or the case. Yes?
terday, when Mr. Gerry was reading one or Mrs.
Calhoun's letters, he made what was Intended to
represent the word "you" used J. R. Y. The ex?
pression in which the letters occur read-t, "Three
persons are much to me In the flesh," J. R. Y.,
and you can guess thc other two.
Mr. Graham said they were confident the let- I
ters were lutended for Initials, a dash being arter
each letter, which would not be the case ir they
were susceptible or the reading suggested by
Judge Davis. The counsel for the prisoner had
some doubt about haviug thc letter read lu the
court in the presence or ladles, it being set In ob?
scenity; but their determination to do justice to
their client caused them to forego any considera?
tion or delicacy lu relation to thc matter.
Mr. Gerry said before taking a copy of thc letter
he had exainln"d the letters with three micro?
scopes, and had no doubt they were as he read
The recorder said the matter was one to be sub?
jected to thc test of common sense, and not of
microscopes. For bis own part he agreed wltn
Judge Davis, but would leave the matter for thc
decision or the jury.
The court then adjourned.
en AXT AS A DEADHEAD.
The Latest Instance of Presidential
Spong! nt;- v Reminiscence.
President Grant, it seems, not content with
his salary or $25,000 a year, tree house-rent, gar?
den stuff, and perquisites Innumerable, to say
nothing or the liberal "presents" he has received
rrom office-seekers, claims the privilege of free
transportation over the railroad's of the country,
whether their officers concede lt or not. At least
we lind iu the Poughkeepsie News thc following
account ut what occurred on thc Hudson River
Railroad on Thursday of las: week, when the
Presldeut and bia party were on their way to at?
tend the rnneral ol Genera! Thomas at Troy :
President Gran: and Secretaries Robeson, Bel
knap and Cox, and Postmaster-General Creswell,
took the midnight train rrom New York. Shun ly
alter leaving the city they were called upon, in
common with other passengers, for their tickets.
They stated they had uone. They were then asked
to pay their rare. This they peremptorily refused
to do, giving the conductor, Harry Stevens, to
understand that their exalted positions should
Insure them free conveyance. The conductor
told them that his Instructions were to pass no
"deadheads" over the road, and thar. If they did
not comply with the rules he should be obliged to
stop the train and put them off. Thus things re?
mained until the urrival ol the train at Pough?
keepsie, when the conductor threatened to dis?
connect the ear which contained thedistingulshed
party. But before proceeding any further. Super?
intendent Toucey was acquainted with the case,
aud that gentleman took the responsibility to
"trust" them for their rare as rar as Albany.
Api-oyiOf or General Grant's penchant for dead?
heading, a correspondent of the New York Sun
relates the following Incident :
Just before the inauguration of Mr. Grant, hav?
ing occasion to pass over the New Jersey Rail?
road, 1 was wituess to a scene which, for sub?
lime cheek, rather exceeded anything I had pre?
viously known. Conductor P-, In passing
through the eaiv, came to thc President elect aud
demanded his ticket, navlng neither ticket or
pass, and reluslng to pay his fare, P-threat?
ened to eject him from the tralu. Mr. Grant,
however, maintained that he was eutltled to free
passage over any road In the United States: that
thc conductor had no right to demand fare of
him, and stated lt should be the last and only
tim?-, as he would report the case and have P
discharged. Whether P-gained his point or not
I am unable to say. as 1 had to leave the cars at
that interesting juncture. Mr. Grant, however,
was as good as his word, did report P-, but so
far from having him discharged. P- still con?
tinues ene of the most gentlemanly officials or the
New Jersey Road, uo doubt much to the disgust
of Mr. Grant, who was his houored passenger last

A Thriving Locality-Crops and Ferti?
lizers-Cotton Prospects-The All-Cot?
ton and No-Corn Mania-Scarcity of
Labor-Contentment of thc Plantation
A travelling correspondent of the New York
Times ls giving some very pleasant sketches of
the condition of various localities in the Interior
of Georgia. Writing from Amenais, under date
of March 28, he says:
The town from which this letter ls dated is the
cen tre or the richest port len or the best cetton
region lu the State or Georgia. It contains Iront
Ave to six thousand Inhabitants, is beautirully
situated, contains many handsome residences,
several flue churches, a well-built and commodi?
ous courthouse, and a number of excellent stores,
warehouses, Ac, with a brisk, sound and steady
trade. In enterprise, business activity, and sub?
stantial comfort, it excels many larger and more
pretentious cities, and if it continues to improve
as lt has Improved during the past year, lt will
very Boon become one of the most important
?laces in Southwestern Georgia. Leaving
?aeon at 8 A. M., the traveller reaches
Ame.?am at uoon, and Ands himself in
the midst of rich lands, where twenty bushels of I
corn and a bale of cotton to the acre are rhe ordi?
nary production. He sees in every direction,
after ne enters Sumter County, large fields of
level land of black, loamy soil, to a great exrent
free from unsightly stumps, well enclosed and
carefully cultivated, in which the corn has been
for Hie most part already planted, and in some
ravored spots Just showing Itself above the sur?
face, and in wnich the preparations have been
made, or nearly so, to plant the cotton seed. All
the appliances on the plantations exhibit thc pres?
ence of ease and comfort, and, better still, or Im?
provement. The mules look rat and well-cared
for, tue wasons substantial and In- good order,
the fences well built and in good repair, the dwel?
lings and outhouses commodious and tidy, the
uegro laborers cheerful, well-behaved, Industrious,
well-fed, well-clad and well-lodged, and every?
thing Indicating prosperity, thrift, Intelligence,
good order and solid wealth.
THU erm NO WORK.
Although upward of two thousand tons or com?
mercial fertilizers bave been distributed from the
Americas depot during the present season, the
storehouse and platform are still filled wi tb sacks
and barrels or these Cumponnds, whose presence
can be easily conressed long before they are seen.
Notwithstanding the natural fertility of the land,
these powerful stimulants to increased produc?
tion have keen employed this year to a greater ex?
tent than in any previous year, and though,
owing to the heavy rains and remarkable cold?
ness of the weather the spring work ls unusually
bac tward, I found, as I have already stated, most
of the corn planted, and everything ready to
commence planting cotton when the weather
EXTENT OF COTTON PLANTING.
I wish I conld report that thc area of the pro?
vision crops bad been largely Increased, and that
to be devoted to cotton proportionally diminished;
but 1 believe that the relative proportion of i860
will not be materially changed, and that '-going
in for a big crop of cotton" ls still the prevalent
practice. Indeed, from all I can see and learn,
this Is not only true-of this section, but will be
found to be so throughout the agricultural por?
tions of ike State. Last year the planters In this
section acted more wisely than those of other
places. They planted to produce "enough tejJo
them," and generally succeeded; but few raised
any surplus, while many have been obliged to buy
to feed their hands and stock until another crop ls
gathered. I do not Bee that thc lesson of '69 ?as
produced any salutary effect. In other portions of
the State, where the "all-cutton aad no-corn ma?
nia" was more prevalent than lt was in this
neighborhood, lt still rages, and While every in?
dividual farmer declares most eloquently that it
is supreme felly not to plant "a plenty of corn
first and then plant as much cotton as you can
tend," I find that these very men who preach
such sound doctrine arc going to repeat their
folly of last year, expeatlag, doubtless, that every
one will follow their good advice, while they plant
"ail cotton," and that thus they will have a big
crop, and "get a big price." Cotton planting tills
year will be fully three weeks behind I he ordi?
nary time. Thc weather has been unprecedented- .
ly inclement. On Friday and Saturday of the
last week there were heavy continuous rains, and
though yesterday and to-day have been dry, the
temperature has been cold, and the indications
are that the "wet spell" ls not yet past. Ordi?
narily lu this region, every one ls now planting
cotton. Now it would be worse than Idle to plant
for the next fortnight.
SCARCITY OF LABOR.
There ls a very general scarcity of labor in this
part of the State. Seme few large planters have
a force equal to that they had last year. These
are men who continue to employ their former
slaves, whoso home attachment haa Induced to
stay where they "was born and raised," and
whom good treatment and liberal compensation
and sirict Justice have convinced that they can?
not "better themselves." There are many, how?
ever, who have a much smaller force than tn '60,
and they have not been able by any effort to In?
crease lt. There are several, too, who have almost
no laborers at all, and who are compelled to aban?
don the idea of making a crop. The railroads
under construction, the promise of higher wages
in Louisiana and Mississippi, and the allure?
ments of town life, are the principal causes of
this diminution of the available laboring force.
CONTENT OF TUE HANDS.
Those who have remained and are at work seem
as happy, contented and thriving a set of people as
I ever saw anywhere. They work well, and in
many places have Induced their wives and daugh?
ters to aid them, In order that their share of
christmas moy be larger. This industry among
the "colored ladies" ls confined to this region.
Elsewhere the doler far Menlo ls the prevalent
taste ?f the .negro women. The prospect gene?
rally about here ls very cheering. The relations
between the two races are ordered by kindness,
Justice and good-will. Plenty and contentment
ure found everywhere. Intelligent improvement
ls making beneficent marks all around. Cultiva?
tion, refinement and the luxuries of life follow
progress as effect follows cause, and ir I were
asked to exhibit to a stranger the best and most
attractive views or the planting portion or Geor?
gia, I should certainly conduct him to Americus,
let him see the plantations In the neighborhood,
introduce him to the inhabitants, and give him
an opportunity to eujoy their elegant aud un?
