-Gold closed in New York yesterday, at ll J
-Cotton closed quiet and firm at 15jc; sales
-In Liverpool cotton closed steady and
quiet; uplands 7?a7jd.; sales 10,000 bales.
-The New York Stock Exchange has elect?
ed W. B. Clorde president, and M. A. Whee?
lock chairman, of the board.
-W. W. Corcoran is gradually becoming
weaker, and the hopes which have been en?
tertained of his recovery are but slight now.
-The Philadelphia, Wilmington and Balti?
more Railroad shops, with some seventeen
engines, were burned yesterday. The Are was
caused by the falling of some .sparks from a
locomotive. Loss very iaeavy.
-A Washington letter says: "The Presi?
dent's proclamation, issued to day in accord?
ance with the terms of the Ku-Klux or force
law,, will soon be followed by proper instruc?
tions to United States marshals, based on the
details of the act. The law requires the proc?
lamation in the first instance, then contem?
plates the exercise of ics powers-through the
civil officers, sustaine? by a military force if
deemed necessary by said officers. Troops
. can be used without any requisition by the
Governor of a State, and will be sent, it is
stated, into North Carolina and Mississippi, lt
the marshals report that they require them.
A letter from Columbia, S. C. states that Gov?
ernor Scott does not deem the further use of
the Stale militia or Federal troops necessary."
-The New York Evening Post says : "The
convention of South Carolina" taxpayers will
assemble in Columbia on Tuesday. Its work
will be watched with more interest in all parts
of the country than that ot any political con?
vention to be held this year. Although its
work will be political, it will not be partisan,
if the authors of the movement continue to
control lt. The best men in both parties have
advised moderation and mutual forbearance
in the present trying condition of the State,
and it is said that eveiy town will be repre?
sented by men who have great interests at
stake, and who desire both peace and thorough
reform. The convention ls called for the pur?
pose of reviewing the alleged extravagance of
the State government, which causes ruinous
taxation, and nas more than doubled the State
debt. The facts complained ot are admitted
by the friends of the State government, and it
is reasonable to hope that all parties will Join
in devising some practical method of reform."
-A Paris correspondent gives some further
and painful Incidents of the murder ol Gen?
erals Lecomte and Clement Thomas by the
Reds. The former's courage failed at the last
moment. He tried to fly. but was seized and
pushed against the wall. His fatherly plea to
spare him for his five children, was unheard
by his implacable linesmen. A sergeant, how?
ever, advanced towards him. "General," said
he, "It you will promise-." Suddenly chang*
Lng his mind, he stepped two puces back, and
discharged his chassepot full in the general's
chest. The others had only to finish the deed.
Cl?ment Thomas never showed a moment's
weakness. -His back against the same wall as
Lecomte, but two paces Irom his corpse, he
made head against death to the end, and
spoke very harshly. When the guns were
lowered he, by an instinctive gesture, placed
his lett arm before his lace; and this old Re?
publican died in the altitude ot Cesar.
-Narrow gauge railroads, on account of
their cheapness and their practicability in
places where it would not be possible to con?
struct roads ot the ordinary width, are at tract
i ng much attention in some parts of the United
States. A thirty-mile road is in process of
construction from Cape' Girardeau lo the iron
banks in Bollinger County, Missouri, of which
one mile is finished. The cost ot this one mile,
laid with T rail, has i>een $6537 60, and the
cost of the entire thirty miles ls estimated at
$213,000, allowing $16,875 for culverts, bridges,
4c. The road bed is six teet wide on top, fol?
lowing thc rise and fall of the ground where
itdoes not exceed seventy feet to the mile,
and winding round high hills and steep grades
In curves of two hundred feet radius, less than
one-third that required for the ordinary gauge.
Rolling stock sufficient for the requirements of
such a road-say two locomoUves, four pas?
senger cars, thirty plattorm cars and ten box
cars-are estimated at $27,000 additional,
making a total cost for road and equipments of
$240,000. For mining and all hilly regions thc
narrow track roads ore peculiarly adapted,
and they are also likely to come into extensive
use as feeders to established lines of railway.
-The New York World's Columbia, S. C.,
corresponder.ee gives a vivid sketch of our
Supreme -Court, under the new r?gime. Chief
Justice Moses is described as a Dative Caro?
linian, of hard, woodenlsh expression, with
a bis. corrugated face adorned with spare
patches of hair, like a "poor field with brier
bushes and furze. Ol his associates, Justice
Willard is part and parcel of the scorioj
thro wu upon this soil by the great volcano of
the war. He ls a large man, with the head of
a silver badger and a beard much like that ot
Hudibras; while Justice Wright is said to Lave
been a Philadelphia barber. He has unmiti?
gated wool, extremely thick lips, and eyes
with a superabundance of while. These eyes
goggle continuously, aud when the judicial
eye-glass is applied thereto to make out some
tough word in a brief, the sight is one for men
and gods to cont?mplale and sigh. A case of
lessee vs. mortgagee was on, and liihe muddle
was worse than the worthy Rev. Mr Blatter
growl's preliminary discourse in ihe Anti?
quary' of three solid hours on the law ol
telnds," the chief justice remarking and being
corrected by the bar, and saying yes, that was
what hu meant, and then uo, thal was not
what he meant, and the black fellow on. the
bench sticking his eye-glass lu his revolving
eye and looking at his brief, and flinging him?
self back in hie chair, and making his silk
gown rustle, and-then the correspondent
-A private letter from a gentleman in
Vicksburg to a frieud in Chicago, gives the
following interesting account of a visit made
by the former, in compar?y with Jefferson Da?
vis, to the plauiation formerly owned by the
late Joseph E. Davis, brother of Jeff, in Missis?
sippi : "We lett at night on the R. E. Lee, one
of our iin?->i steamers, aud maded ut ihe Hur?
ricane plantai'on about daylight the next
morning. This plantation and another known
as Blalrtleld were occupied before the war by
Joseph E. Davis aud his brother, President Da
vis. Ikey were sold by Mr. Joseph E. Davis,
who owned them both, to his favorite freed?
man, Ban Montgomery, for $300,000, payable
at the end of ten yeSrs, (1st January, 187G,)
Interest at sis per cent., payable annually.
Ben. who is very black, but thoroughly edu?
cated before the war, met us and gave u3 a
breakfest, waiting on the table himself, but.
not offering to take a sear. After breakfast we
had a carriage and rode over the magnificent
estate, the extent of which you can form some
idea of when I tell you thal Ben Montgomery
made list year 2500 bales of cotton and a large
quanti'? rf corn. We dined at Blalrfleld, the
former re*b>euce Of Mr. Jefferson Davis, and
now occupied as a residence by the aforesaid
Ben, i.nd yoe will not be surprised to learn
that the former slaves of Mr. Davis greeted
him wi th all the warmth of affection that they
were capable o? expressing. Mr. Davis met
them cordially and encouraged them by many
kind words. After dinner at which our
wealthy host again waited ou us in exoellent
6tyle, we passed on to a very large and valu?
able plantation which had been purchased by
Ben Montgomery and added to the Davis es?
tate, and which will add to his crop this year
probably 1000 bales more, making 35UO in all,
If it ls a good crop year."
A Case of Caeek..
Jtfr. Timothy Hurley, we are told, !?as
bought-some pieces of silver (we are not in?
formed whether the Lumber be thirty, or
not,) which he intend* ?3 prizes for which
the white Are companies of Charleston, in
the persons of their respective Presidents,
shall compete at the coming-tournament.
And further, that he stipulates that the
award shall be made by a committee of la?
dies to be designated by the companies.
Now Mr. Hurley, whatever he may have been
when he -otered the political arena in South
Carolina, is understood to be a large capital?
ist, a;id it is natural enough that so shrewd
a politician should be more than willing to
cullivute pleasant relations wiibso large and
influential au organization as the Charleston
Fire Department. It is a matter of small
concern to those whose interests Mr. Hur?
ley, by a pleasant fiction, is supposed to rep?
resen: in the General Assembly, how he may
choose to indulge bis eccentric or generous
whims; but, in the present instance, we
shall be curious to see how our white fire?
men, among whom the sources of Mr. Hur?
ley's wealth are hardly a secret, will relish
the idea of becoming the contestants for his
bounty, and especially of selecting from
among their lady friends those who may
covet the honor of making the award. In
case the white firemen should not manifest
a becoming eagerness to engage in the pro?
posed rivalry, we would mildly suggest that
the ptizes be turned over to the colored fire?
men, a majority of whom are Mr. Hurley's
own constituents and supporters, and who
would, doubtless, be less fastidious in their
views than their white brethren.
Thc Cotton Qucs?oii-A Plea for In?
So much has been said in favor of our
planters making a small cotton crop, aud de?
voting more of their attention to the produc?
tion of corn and provisions, that a fair pre?
sentation of the other side of the question
has become a matter of very general ioter
.est. An able and instructive paper on the
subject has lately appeared in one of our
Southern contemporaries, from the pen of
B. F. Nourse, Esq., of Boston, a gentleman
specially qualified by experience and train?
ing to discuss the question, so momentous
to the future of the Southern people. The
article was written in reply to the counsel
given to the South by the New York Com?
mercial and Financial Ghronicle, that it
would be better to reduce cotton production
fofo time, until, by a diminution of receipts,
its market would again offer better prices.
It is the Pennsylvania theory rejecting coaL
Mr. Nourse, after reviewing the entire ground,
proceeds to assail such advice as this with
the full vigor o? fact, argument and illustra?
tion; and ;n iiis reply makes up a broad and
complete statement of the condition and
prospects of*cotton planting in this country.
He shows thai it is fallacious to advise the
SOuth to abandon cotton and take to the
production of -corn ; aud advises a steady
continuance with colton, arguing that the
years IS69 utxl 1870 have been so exceptional
as lo be held providential by the planter,
and that, considering how Brazil, Egypt and
India are visibly fulling off, this is ihe decis?
ive time for us to make that final exertiou
which is surely to establish us as masters of
the cotton market of the world, and after
that io enable us to fix prices as we mainly
The article of Mr. Nourse is full of interest
as a discussion of the influence of a full
crop of conon upon the- individual and the
whole Southern Bection, and thence upon
the interests and industries of the entire
country. We will cite a few of the points
made by him in the way both of illustrating
and enforcing his argument. In the first
place, he begs the planter to keep in mind
that three of the last months of last year
need not be expected to repeat themselves
very soon. Next, the large plantations are
cut up into small farm's. Before emancipa?
tion, and when cotton brought ten cents, ii
was reckoued Uiat, in Georgia for instance,
one-third of the crop wa? made by free while
labor; now fully one-half is so produced.
Every farmer can produce all the food crops
he ueeds, and from three to eight bales of
conon lo every able-bodied male member of
his family. Colton will keep, when grain is
perishable. How eau it be ascertained to a
Certainty whether it is less profitable to raise
it, even with fears of au overcrop, than it
would be to let the fields run to sedge uud
wire grass! Ii is helter ta work the land,
and the taxes ure jusi as heavy on idle as on
Considered in reference to value, Ameri?
can cotton can be profitably produced more
cheaply than any oilier iu the world. Yet
we have never had but one crop before the
I present that exceeded four million bales.
Foreign nations may plant one more lurge
.crop in order to lest their ability to recover
former prices for it; but thai furnishes all
the stronger reason why the South should do
the same, that it may relire from the field of
competition the muster. Mr. Nourse allows
to the South, after deducting all possible
outlays from their lust year's crop, and every
offset of importation uguinsi exportation, a
remainder of over hundred aud fifty millions
.of dollars. To Ibis he justly adds ihe obvi?
ous value of continue'! industry, comfort?
able subsistence and health to the. Southern
people, progress in agriculture and manufac?
tures, and every improvement sustaineU and
impelled by the power of that crop. When
a few more crops shall have added that large
annual amount, and the mechanic arts shall
have become established by the immigration
of skilled artisans, and the trained labor ^re?
quired in shops, factories .and mines shall
have been supplied, then the capital and
skill that is now accumulating there will be?
get diversified employment, and agriculture
will lind its own .remedies for excess in any
single specialty. But the capital must go on
accumulating a while longer. To the inquiry,
what has become of the large sums already
acquired by the South, Mr. Nourse answers
as follows: Much of it bas been expended in
reproductive power ; some is employed
through bankers and others; a large pro?
portion is hoarded, as is the habit in scat?
tered agricultural communities; and all of it
remains scattered and ineffective, when it
should be concentrated. The mountaiu
ranges are filled with valuable minerals; be?
tween them aud the cotton-belt stretch vast
grain fields, awaiting cultivation to suBtain
mining and mechanical industries.
Io respect to price, both for the staple and
the articles consumed by its producers, the
general advance is rationally accounted for.
Mr. Nourse shows that a cost bf 5?tl. on the
plantation would be about 124c. per pound
currency. A surplus of a million and a half
bales would be no greater to carry over now
than waa half that number of bales in 1857-58*
There is a very large increase in the supply
of gold; trade and markets are greatly ex?
tended ; there exist3 everywhere an increas?
ed buying power, even among barbarian ar d
balf-civilized people; and transportation has
become cheap and rapid. Hence the average
value of everything useful or ornamental has
been enhanced, and why not cotton ? Half
the crop i3 to be produced, as estimated,
without hired labor, nor will the latter be
what it was last year, nor more than for able
bodied hands in I860. Lands bring less than
half the price at that time. Everything is
as cheap now, except sui ?-.tenc.e supplies,
a3 twelve years ago. Hence it is a mistake
to say that cotton cannot be raised for le3S
than twelve cents, when the South became
wealthy by producing it for a series ri years
at not more than seven, and oftener K^S than
that The great problem, in Mr. Nourse's
opinion, ?3 to bring about mutually satisfac?
tory and stable relations between laborer
and employer, and that is the work of time
and good intentions. The crop of 1870-71
brought wealth to the South, and the crop^of
the present year ought to be made for less
cost; and though low prices for cotton look
unfavorable, they are capable of working"
out permanent benefit to that section, and
the whole country. And thus they will, if
continued, have done more to establish cot?
ton production in the South on a stable and
profitable basis than all the yeats of high
prices since the war. Economy of manage?
ment and a larger application of personal
industry and labor are insisted on as the
surest supplementary agencies for restoring
the South to astateof permanent prosperity.
