The tide of emigration seems to bo
rolling towards Mexico. Wo learn,
from tho Louisville Courier, that
Oncral John S. Williams, a gallant
ofiicer in the Mexican war, left Nash?
ville on Tuesday last for that coun?
try, carrying with him sixty emi?
grants. He does not go there a
stranger, for in the capacity of a
soldier he traveled over the greater
portion of that country years ago.
He and his company will make a
valuable acqmsition to the Empire of
Other expeditions of a similar char?
acter have been organized at various
points at the South; and while we
cordially agree with the advice given
by General Hampton to his fellow
citizens to stay at home, and bend
their energies to the recuperation
and resuscitation of their own coun?
try; and, whilst we could not advise
a general system of expatriation of
the sons of the South, yet it is pain?
fully evident that there is but little
encouragement for them to remain.
The means and appliances, for the
development of our resources, have
been sadly crippled; money is scarce,
with but little chance of an early iin
provement in that respect; stock and
agricultural implements are not only
scarce, but dear; our former system
of labor has been shattered, and the
experiment of a new system has to
be made ; all these things must have
a discouraging and depressing effect
upon tho energies of the young and
adventurous. Moreover, coupled with
this lamentable condition of affairs,
is the political position Of the South?
ern States, there being but little
prospect of an early restoration as
members of tho Union. Had ths
dominant party in Congress promptly
acquiesced in the President's recon?
struction policy, and heartily co-ope?
rated in carrying out that policy, we
believe it would have given new life
and energy to our people; it would
have brought into our midst labor
and capital, by restoring confidence
between the people of both sections;
and, although we hope and believe
the President will eventually be suc?
cessful, yet the effect of tho action oi
those who oppose him is, for the time
being, disastrous to the interests oi
the whole country.

all thc reports that reach us, ant"
. from what we generally know, of the
resources of Mexico, she offers s
tempting field for the industrious one
energetic young men of the South
Her broad fertile fields, those vas'
treasure vaults, her inexhaustibh
mines, and her wealth and other in
numerable resources, are attraction:
that cannot fail to induce immigra
tion. And, in this connection, it ii
worth while for the people of tin
United States to consider whether i
would not be better to let Maximiliai
alone in his, thus far, successful at
tempts to regenerate Mexico, than t(
carry out, by force of arms or by an^
other means, the Monroe doctrine
This question is worthy the gravi
consideration of the American people
' lint, whilst many, doubtless, wil
seek their fortunes in that rich conn
try, it is thc more plaiu duty of pa
triotism, exclusive of the strong tie
of hallowed associations, and tba
innate love of country, which, in ?
greater or less degree, is felt by ever

SCARCITY OF COTTON. -It is believe
that, in the most hopeful view th
can be taken of the cotton product
. 18IW), such a dearth of cotton will 1
experienced this year as to raise tl
price, before next September, to
dollar a pound. The Government
far inclines to this belief that it h
.suspended the sales of captured ce
ton in New York.
A special correspondent of the Bal?
timore Sun says:
"Much speculation'prevails in re?
gard to the ultimate fate of the free
negro suffrage bill of the House. That
it will pass the Senate is a foregone
conclusion. It will pass the Senate
as it comes from the House by a de?
cided majority. I notice that some
shrewd politicians hold out the idea
that President Johnson will veto it.
They assume this as a matter of policy,
because they aro unwilling to suffer
the impression to be made on the
public mind that. the President is
to co-operate with the radical majority
of Congress-perhai>s also a tempo?
rary power, which, at the next elec?
tions, may be overthrown. Many
others behove that the President will
sign the bill, upon the consideration
that the District is not a State, but is
placed under the exclusive jurisdic?
tion of Congress, which body has a
right to legislate for the District in
every partievdar. There is no doubt
that Congress can legislate upon the
subject of the municipal government
of the District, and they will proba?
bly follow up this measure by a law
providing that the councils of the
cities, and the Levy Court, shall be
composed in due proportion of ne?
Another correspondent of the Sun
"Prominent radical Senators, much
to my surprise, say that tho House
negro suffrage bill will pass the Se?
nate like a flash. An inside Republi?
can says that the only amendments
they will make to it will be provisions,
in the way of penalties, for keeping
negroes from the polls, and things of
that sort. Thc latter is a coldly
ironical view, with probably too much
of the spirit of truth in it. I believe
the President will veto the House bill,
if it comes to him, and I have no
idea that the requisite two-thirds vote
could be gotjin the Senate, if, indeed,
in the House, to make it a law under
"The radicals seem intent on mak?
ing negro suffrage general, North and
South. If they are defeated in re?
spect to this District, then their
bitterness will be augmented against
thc South and reconstruction. They
feel confident about carrying tho
elections by the howl they can set up
to the effect that if the Southern
members are admitted, they, with the
Democrats, will go in for repudiation
of the national debt. Col. Forney
announces that the 'issue is made up
for the country by the passage of the
negro suffrage bill by the Senate. Mr.
Wade mode it a national issue.' "
How much better for the negro and
for the white-for the interests of thc
whole country-that this everlasting
discussion about the negro should
cease. It is impossible to tell what
further disasters to the nation's pros?
perity will ensue from this everlast?
ing agitation. The negro is free

pation-and the highest duty of the
white citizen, North and South, is to

cluded, that when mortals forget that
there is an inevitable day, and, after
it, an inscrutable eternity, the course
of their lives is likely to be such, that
they will be illy prepared to confront

the trials and perils of a long and
bloody struggle, to maintain the prin?
ciples which it so clearly enunciates
principles fundamentally and vitally
necessary to the preservation of civil
and religious liberty; and they should
adopt it as a maxim, that their politi?
cal health and well-being requires
their public servants, in the highest
and lowest capacity, to observe and
rigidly adhere to tho Constitution, as
tho palladium, the very ark and cove?

SECRETARY STANTON AND GENERAL

that the late resolution adopted in

tinued occupation of the late rebel
States by United States troops, ema?
nated from the War Office, and that
Secretary Stanton sides with the
radicals in their policy of a long and
rigid probation to the States concern?
ed, as the price of their re-admission
to Congress. General Grant, on the
other hand, as he has declared him?
self in his report on the subject, sub?
mitted by the President to the Senate,
believes that the excluded States
should be restored to Congress with?

Grant's recommendation is in har?
mony with President Johnson's
policy. Their object is to assist thc
civil authorities of the excluded
Southern States ii? their work of re?
construction, and to get them back
into Congress as soon as possible,
while the policy of tho Secretary ol
War and the radicals is to keep those
States out of Congress and out o
our national political elections a'
long as possible. If the Republicai
party is wise, it will adhere to tin
policy of Johnson and Grant, anil

Our Country's Future.
Li this happy holiday season, it is
natural that we should strive to ban?
ish the gloom that until lately has op?
pressed the nation ; and that, instead
of gazing upon the cheerless past, we
should eagerly look ahead to discover,
if possible, what favor the future has
in store for our chastened country.
It is an easy thin to paint the future
in brilliant colors; but blasted hope
is more bitter than no hope at all,
and it is wrong to inspire an expecta?
tion that has no reasonable basis.
Still we think tho signs of the times
aro promising for the future of the
United States. Hitherto, the great
political bono of the nation has been
sectionalism. The people in different
parts of the country have been in
constant conflict of opinion concern?
ing their political and material inte?
rests, and it was the estrangement re?
sulting from that difference which led
to the sanguinary events of the hast'
five years. The seed of discord, jeal?
ousy and sectional strife was implant?
ed at the very root of our govern?
mental tree, and the fruits of that
I seed we have seen in the rancor, ha?
tred and eventual rebellion, which
j have now passed into history. Time
alone can definitely decide whether
.the great es*il of sectionalism has sur?
vived tho terrible ordeal through
which the nation has lately passed.
Certainly it has received a blow which
ought to forever prevent its renewed
growth. It is true that we still see
some evidence of the old pernicious
influence, both at the South and at
the North, but there is good reason to
hope that this is only the scent that
hangs around the broken vase, and
which time will ere long dispel. Al?
ready we see evidence that national
questions are beginning to grow up
in the place of the. old sectional issues.
Instead of the conflict of interests be?
tween certain portions of our common
country, which was so long a subject
of contention, there is now an evi?
dent disposition to nationalize our
interests and to make the welfare of
a part ot thc whole Union. The in?
creasing interest that is manifested in
questions relative to our commercial,
manufacturing and general trade in?
terests, is an encouraging sign of the
future. In the early years of our Go?
vernment, before the poisonous germ
of sectionalism had perm en ted the
body politic, the subjects of political
dispute were confined to such nation?
al questions ?us the tariff, tho finances,
territorial extension, internal im?
provement, ?feo. There is now an
evident tendency of our politics to?
ward those national issues whose im?
portance has lately become apparent.
The old issue of protection and free
trade is becoming animated with new
life, and its discussion is already
warm and wide-spread. The national
finances have also become a fruitful
theme for controversy; the develop?
ment of internal resources and ques?
tions respecting the territories are
beginning to be agitated, and alto?
gether there is an unmistakable dis?
position of thc people to avoid the
j deadly upas of sectionalism in the fu?
ture, and to drift back to tho good
old national questions, whose discus?
sion is beneficial and not injurious to
the welfare of the Union.

BEHIND TUP. SCENES TN WASHING?

Discovery of a New Stock for Paper.
If wo aro to credit the papers which
reach us by the last English mails, a
substance has at last been discovered
which will take the place of cotton
and rags in the manufacture of paper.
It is found in the Southern provinces
of Spain, and is known as "esparto
grass. " The London Economist speaks
of this discovery as follows:
The important position which the
lately discovered article of petroleum
has rapidly taken in commerce is very
interesting in itself, as suggesting
how quickly the discovery of any new
principle of motion would exercise
an important influence on the pre?
sent state of our industry. Another
discovery bas lately been made,
which though of less importance than
that of petroleum, is still so interest?
ing in character, and so useful as
regards an important article bf mami
facture, that we think our readers will
l>e glad to receive the following in?
formation on thc subject.
"Wc allude to thc discovery lately
made of the applicability of the
Atocha, or, as it is called in Spain,
"esparto," to the manufacture of
paper. Mr. Lloyd, of the Waltham
stow Paper Mills, is stated to have
had a great share in the merit of this
discovery; and Mr. Mark, tho British
Consul at Malaga, has drawn up an
interesting report on this subject,
which has lately been made public in
the commercial reports. This grass
is the produce of waste lands-it re?
quires no expense in cultivation and
little in collecting. It is best propa?
gated from the roots and not from
seed. It is perennial, and propagates
of itself, and improves by a regular
yearly gathering, if plucked with
sufficient care. Mr. Mark has de?
voted great care in his endeavors to
ascertain the climate and soil which
are favorable to the development ^f
the plant; and it appears that the
Atocha requires a decidedly bot and
dry climate; that it grows equally
well in the plains and in the moun?
tains to a moderate elevation, and
that as regards soil it flourishes both
in calcareous and argilaccous soils, or
when these soils arc blended in the
form of marl.
The greatest quantity is shipped
from the provinces of Almeria and
Marcia; but it is found, though in
less abundance, in all the Southern
provinces of Spain. It is also said
to be plentiful in some parts of tho
opposite coast of Africa, and ship?
ments are made from Oran to Eng?
land. Prior to the discovery of its
being made available for the manu?
facture of paper, the * esparto bad
been used in Spain as fuel, in the
manufacture of ropes for mining and
rigging, and for making baskets and
But the discovery of the valuable
properties of the grass has made a
complete revolution in the districts
where it grows. Fortunes have been
realized by individuals who wero tho
proprietors of the land which pro?
duces it. The price has more than
doubled, and is now estimated by Mr.
Mark at ?4 2s. per English ton on
board. The greater part of the ex?
ports have, as yet, been directed to
England, where, in the brief space of
three or four years, the article has
become a requisite of the highest im?
portance, 160,000 tons having been,
as it is said, imported into England
in that period; and Mr. Mark esti?
mates the present rate of annual ex?
port at 50,000 tons. Mr. Mark esti?
mates that, even at its present en?
hanced price, the Spanish grass will
take a place with cotton, hemp and
wool, as one of the staple and essen?
tial bases of manufacturing industry;
and if this anticipation should be
realized, in addition to the valuable
resource which it seems likely to pro vc
to our paper manufacturers, it will
form an important element in trade
between this oonntry and Spain.
This is a matter of peculiar impor?
tance to us in this country, in view of
the enormous price of paper. Why
may not this "esparto grass" be
naturalized at the South, where the
climate and soil correspond with that
of Southern Spain? This is a matter
