A Macon exchange states that little
or no corn will be raised in the South
this year, owing to the enormous
profits which are expected to be real?
ized from the growth of cotton. In
view of the fact that the South must
buy all the breads tuffs it needs, the
same paper says: "The West must
now feed us; and if the freedman
turns out a faithful laborer, the trude
between the South and West will
exceed anything before known."
There is scarcely a doubt but that
the South will devote its whole ener?
gies to the raising of cotton. It can?
not possibly cost more than eight
cents a pound in gold to grow it,
while, if the crop turns out at till
fair, it must sell for over twenty-five
cents a pound in gold. So large and
so certain a margin is rarely ottered
for an agricultural product, and all
accounts agree that, with the freed?
men or without them, a very large
amount will be raised if thc season is
at all propitious.
So great ia thc demand .for white
labor to go to tho South-west, that
there is an absolute scarcity of farm?
hands at the West, notwithstanding
the stoppage of the war; and wages
rule so high that farmers are holding
meetings to induce laborers to come
from the East. Indeed, there is a
fear that the high price of labor and
the rates charged for thc transporta?
tion of freight on the railroads will
discourage the growth of breadstuff's
this year, when they will bo so much
needed to feed the South.
The heavy trade which will spring
up next summer and fall between the
South and West will have important
political as well ? S business conse?
quences. It will give great activity
to the ship-yards to supply the im?
mense fleet of steamers which will bo
needed on the Southern rivers to re?
place those destroyed by the war; thc
railroads will need more rolling stock,
while cities like St. Louis, Memphis,
Cincinnati and Louisville will add
enormously to their trade.
The more intimate commercial re?
lations between the South and West
"will not be without their influence
Upon tue fall elections. If tho pre?
sent Congress persists in keeping the
South out of the Union, thc West
will be revolutionized politically when
Congressmen are to be chosen. The
Western people are too generous, as
well as too shrewd, to needlessly hu?
miliate the section which will bo their
best customers.-New .York Tlrorld.
AN ECCENTRIC MAN DEAD.-Un.
McBride, who gave himself tho title
of the "King of Pain," and who was
in this citvr several months since with
Iiis celebrated pain killer, of which h/s
sold a large quantity, was shot a few
days since by a gambler in Memphis,
and died shortly afterwards. Mc?
Bride had acquired considerable
wealth by the sale of b s medicine. |
A few days ago we published an j
article giving an account of tho loss |
by thc doctor of fifteen hundred dol?
lars in a gambling den at Memphis. ?
After that he became involved in a ;
difficulty which cost him his life.

Kuroprnii Prophecies for 1SS0.
The Paris correspondent of tho
London Telegraph thus prophecies
concerning the event? of this year,
his speculations being curious if not
The year 18G? will, I think, be a
marked year in the history of France,
and indeed of Europe. That it will
be a year of profound peace I fully
expect, for who really wai'ts to tight?
There are parties in Italy and Austria,
perhaps, who might like to engage,
but ;u-> both thc Governments know
better, such warlike aspirations are
of small avail. For tho rest, the Em?
peror of the French, who practically
keeps the key of that much-quoted
Temple of Janus, has declared for
peace. England would scarcely fight
for herself, much less her friends,
and when those two powers are
agreed, the rest of Europe has but
little to say. Still, two great ques?
tions mus?, I think, be settled-those
of Koine and Venice.
The Emperor, it would seem, is
determined to act up to the strict
lotter of the convention of the 15th
September, and so I think it is im?
possible that the Pope can remain in
Pome, even though guaranteed from
any attack from without by this very
convention. So poor old Pi? Nono
will luther have to migrate or to retire
to the restricted dominion of the
Vatican alni those quaint gardens
where the "Duke of Wellington"
and other celebrities ara cut out in
shrubs-like Mr. Pecksniff's! dwell?
ing, it will be "a poor thing, but my
own"-and then Home will become
Italian, and that vexed question be
solved. Then the Venetian altair
rises Defore us, and that, too, must
be settled. Lookers-on might think
that Italy's difficulty should be
Austria's opportunity, and that now
that Italy must perforce reduce her
anny, Austria might become not only
more obstinate as regards Venetia,
but aggressive as regards other terri?
tories; but then "lookers-on" would
forget that such a step on the part of
the Government of Vienna would
force the Emperor Napoleon to quit
those pleasant paths of peace into
which he is leading France. But it
is useless to discuss such a chance in
the face, not only of Austria's impe
cuniosity, but of her Emperor's
"other views." It will come to a
bargain, you will see, and Austria
will swallow her Hapsburg pride and
exchange what is really a barren
honor for a large sum of Italian
money, which the concession of
Venetia-invaluable to Italy, but
utterly worthless, nay, very expensive
to Austria-will permit the Govern?
ment of France to pa}'. These aro
the two questions which now alone
threaten the peace of Europe ; and
as the Emperor Napoleon is more
than likely to be already the accepted
umpire in both affairs, it is not won?
derful that his speech at tho opening
of the coming session of Parliament
should be looked for with interest
As I have before said, I look upon
the present as the most peaceful
period that dawned upon us since
the day, in 1 >;">3, when the Imperial
orders sent the French fleet to the
Bay of Salamis, and practically kin?
dled the Crimean war; andi also con?
sider that the great International
Exhibition of 18G7 is a "material
guarantee" of that peace, given not
only by France, but by the European
powers who have sent in their adher?
ence to this great scheme of universal
improvement. Apropos, we had
another adherent yesterday in the
person of the Japanese minister-his
name I spare you-who, after exam?
ining all the plans, declared that his
Government would send a great and
varied collection; so no doubt, the
Japanese court will not be one o? thc
least interesting of the series. The
committee hare now under their con?
sideration propositions for carrying
out two schemes- one for the forma?
tion of a club for the exhibitors, the
other for the best system of carrying
