Stand oy Your Country.
We have heretofore opposed the
many emigration schemes which have
been advertised. We believe that
Mexico nor Brazil offer such rewards
of industry as may be found at home,
to say nothing of the drawbacks to
happiness and contentment which
arise from a difference of language,
customs, laws, religion and manners.
But there is ono kind of emigration
we do not hesitate to recommend to
young men. It is to emigrate from
the cities and towns . to the country,
and instead of seeking positions as
^ clerks in business houses, to rent land
enough in the rural districts to give
them occupation, or to seek employ?
ment at the hands of the farmers,
who complain so much of the want
of labor. More money can be made
in this way out of the soil than they
can obtain in the cities. They can
become producers instead of being
consumers. Let them answer the
cry of the interior country for labor,
and they will increase their individual
wealth and the wealth of the South.
The public opinion of the South
ought to be arrayed against all drones
and idlers, who lounge their lives
away in cities and villages, when
labor is so much needed and offers
such rich rewards. What ia there
degrading in labor? It is not half so
degrading as lazy dependence. There
is nothing even in hiring themselves
out to work on farms which is less
compatible with personal dignity
than hiring themselves to work in
stores, counting-rooms, or offices,
for the city employers. Those of our
young men who, in the late war, en?
rolled themselves as privates, and
placed themselves under the direction
of officers of companies, whose supe?
riority in civil life they would never
] iave recognized, will find nothing as
menial in the duties of a farm as they
had to perform in camp-no such sa?
crifice of dignity and independence,
no such hardship and toil. Why is
it less honorable to occupy the station
of private in peace than in war, espe?
cially when a successful campaign
will fill the pockets, and enable the
laborer of this year to be the pro?
prietor of next?
The New York News, speaking ol
the schemes of the policy of thc
radical party, says that it is not sim
ply the gratification of sectional anti
pathy, nor yet even the desire to mak(
partisan capital by conferring politica
power upon the freedmen, that in
duces them to make war upon th?
President's policy of reconstruction
They have an object beyond these
and we regret to see that it is beinj
partially accomplished. That obj ec
is to so far disgust und discourage th<
more influential classes of the Soutl
as to provoke them to aelf-expatri
ation. The demagogues who rule ii
Congress have cunning enough to b(
aware that a systematic course of in
justice and insult toward a sensitiv?
and high-toned race, born to freedom
and kindly appreciative of its loss
will leave them no acceptable alter
native but to seek shelter in othe:
lands from the tyrrnny that weigh:
upon them in their own. The clos<
of the war left the Southern people h
great depression of spirits, afflictei
with domestic misfortunes, and crush
ed beneath a load of poverty and sor
row. This burden of suffering na
turally occasioned a mental and mora
prostration that intensified the sus
ceptibility to indignity and outrage
There is no lack of manhood in th
Southern States. History does no
record a more sublime display o
morai courage than our vanquishe<
countrymen have shown in their ac
ceptance of the consequences of di?
comfiture. When the great politics
fabric that they reared was dashe
from its foundations and crumble
over their heads, they stood amid tb
ruins with the calm dignity of me
who can confront their destiny, i
the consciousness that they had doc
all in their power to command su<
cess. They struggled, they endurei
they stood by their cause, while the]
was the slightest glimmering of hot
to redeem their efforts from the in
pntation of madness. They bebo:
their homes destroyed, their wiv<
and children destitute, and the grav
of their comrades telling the odds
the unequal struggle; but, until thc
leader yielded his sword in token
the final overthrow, they forced tl
overwhelming legions of their fe
out-numbered, perhaps despairin
but still defiant. When all was over,
and the same sense of duty that sus?
tained them in tho fight bade them
ground their arms and lower their
banner, they took up the implements
of peace and sought to redeem their
country from the frightful ravages of
j the strife. It was but natural that
there should be bitterness and an
J guish at their hearts until at least the
grass had time to grow on the graves
of the f?llen; until at least the tears
were ' dry upon the cheeks of the
widows and oiphans; until at least
the gashes of the wounded began tQ
But, before the echoes of the last
gun had died away, the radicals com?
menced to goad, insult and provoke
the vanquished with that relentless
bloodhound spirit of fanaticism that
gives no quarter iu the hour of vic?
tory, and knows no mercy, even \n
the presence of appealing peace.
Some in the South have survived the
struggle, who have force of character
and intellect enough to combat the
radical intrigues to gain a partisan
supremacy in that section ; and those
men are to be hounded out of the
country by sheer persistence in insult
and oppression. We hope that South?
erners thus ostracised will have the
moral courage to combat the conspi?
racy. We know that many of them
are casting wistful glances toward the
inviting fields of Mexico and Brazil,
and we admit that there is sore temp?
tation to seek iii those more hospita?
ble climes relief from the intolerable
persecution of the fanatics who wield
the reins and the lash in our National
Legislature. But these have well
nigh run their Phaeton course, and
the thunderbolt is forged that will
hurl them into the political Po.
Mr. Johnson will not sufl'er the
South to be made valueless to the
common cause of recuperation, by
the machinations of a faction that
have no regard for the general inter?
ests, but seek only, by encouraging
dissension, to strengthen their parti
san power. The post of honor and of
duty for every Southerner is now at
his own hearthstone, or in those fields
of labor where he can best, rebuild
the shattered fortunes of his section.
In doing that, he will serve the in?
terests of all, for the prosperity of
the South is essential to the progress
and welfare of the Republic.
Bishop Lynch, of Charleston, in
reply to various strictures upon his
course during the war, has written a
letter, stating that the Te Deum sung
at Charleston, in 1861, when Fort
Sumter was taken, was because the
fort fell without loss of life. He also
states that he was in Charleston when
that famous letter from the Pope to
Jefferson Davis was written. The
Bishop disclaims any agency in pro?
curing that letter, and regards it and
Davis' reply, not as a recognition by
the Pope of the Confederacy, but as
a correspondence between individu?
als-private, not diplomatic.
The New York Times finds some
consolation in the interminable dis
cussion in Congress against the South,
in the fact that had it not been ir
this direction the debates would hav<
been equally exciting upon the sub

finances. Agitation being chronic

It is evident that the Republican
members, as distinguished from the
radical faction in Congress, are be?
coming more and more averse to a
rupture with the President. They
are disposed to strike outcome new
line of action whereby theyiwill avoid
collision with the President, retain
the offices and afford tine for the
consideration by the peo >le of the
policy proposed by the Pi (sident in
regard to restoration. So ne of the

This plan involves a separation of
the radical fanatics from [be Union
Republicans. The small democratic
element of the present Congress will
not favor this arrangement, for it
would destroy their hopes of au im?
mediate rupture and collidion. But
there is a majority in bothiHouses of
members who may como into this
arrangement, and it is not certain
that the President will not approve
of it; for he has positively assured a
leading conservative Senator that he
will not make any removals at pre?
sent. Besides this, it is understood
by some influential Republican mem?
bers of the House that the President
is not disposed to enter upon any
course of proscription. Tais is under?

Important intelligence from Mexi?
co, up to a very late date, was re?
ceived here on the 13th. The sub?
stance of the news is as follows: The
authority of the Government is now
extended over the whole country, and
it is everywhere acknowledged and
respected. The Jnarists have no
longer any organized bodies of troops
in the field, except a few hundred
men at El Paso. Many bands of
guerillas have recently been broken
up, and the roads in all parts of the
country are comparatively safe. Busi?
ness of all kinds is active and flour?
ishing, and the people everywhere
are devoting themselves to industrial
pursuits. Commerce with many Eu?
ropean ports is steadily increasing.
The popularity of Maximilian with
the Mexican people is universal, and
manifests itself in many ways.

Mr. Seward was informed, a fe^

Upon the subject of raw cotton,
nothing has yet been agreed; it can?
not be taxed when exported; and such
tax as is levied upon it, therefore,
when sold for export, will have to bo

sion, in their report, suggested that
no foreign bound cotton laden vessel
should have a clearance, unless the
cotton on board said vessel bad paid
a duty, but this suggestion is worth?
less, m view of the fact that the Con?
stitution expressly forbids the levy of
any such duty.
Comptroller Broadhcad decided,
on the 12th, adversely to any allow?

Southern cities, and used by officers

poses during the war. A recent de?
cision to the like effect was make by
the Quartermaster-General, as our
readers will remember. The ques?
tion excites some interest among law?
On the 12th, the Secretary of the
Treasury received a telegram from
the Minister of Finance of the Cana?
dian Government, asking that they
be allowed to place officers at railway
points on our side to examine bag?
gage destined for Canada; in accord?
ance with which, the Secretary tele?
graphed the Collectors of Customs
along the Northern frontier to allow
the same to be done, as it is under?
stood that we have similar privileges.
FREEDMEN AND THE GOVERNMENT.
The number of freedmen in the South
supported by the General Govern?
ment, is but little (if any; less than
half a million-one-eighth of the en?
tire colored population. Heretofore,
the negro has been self-supporting,
or taken care of by individuals. In
slavery, it was impossible for him to
become a pauper; for the master was
compelled by law to support him.
Nor did it ever happen till now in
freedom here that he became a burden
to communities or States. It would
be interesting to know why it is that
such an immense number of this class
of our population now become a tax
upon the country at large. It can
hardly be accounted for upon the
ground that the Government is so
rich, its debts so small and its levy of
taxes so light, that, in a generous
mood, it seeks for persons and oppor?
tunities, with a view of bestowing
charities or granting pecuniary favors.
li this were so, it would certainly
make no distinctions on account of
color, and absolutely clothe und feed
an eighth of one kind of population,
instead of one-sixtieth of the whole.
We know, also, that persons of any
color, who are willing to work, will
find plenty of it to do at a fair remu?
neration. And, it is equally well
known, that the great mass of our
people are as friendly to-day as here?
tofore to the freedman, and-with
reduced means, it is true-as willing
to bestow charities upon the deserv?
ing, and take care of the helpless and
infirm. How, then, can we account
for this fact, unless we say-and wo do
say-that the policy of the Govern?
ment has been so shaped that, in mak?
ing 4,000,000 of freemen, it has made
half a million of idlers and another
half million of paupers!
AN AMUSING SCENE-Quite an
amusing scene recently occurred
under the pavillion of Dan Castello's
Circus, at Wilmington, which was not
previously announced iu the billa.
The Dispatch says:
During the display made by Cas?
tillo o? his wonderful mule, and when
little boys were called from the audi?
ence into the ring to make the always
vain attempt to ride him, a big, burly
sailor, somewhat "heavy," entered
the ring, and advanced to tho animal
for the purpose of bestriding him.
To this the mi?e objected, urd con?
firmed his objection by a 'double
leaded" kick from both of his iron
shod feet into the pit of the man's
stomach. To the astonishment of
every one, the man returnee", the sa?
lute of the mule, by delivering seve?
ral kicks in return, and repeated the
attempt to mount him, when the
mule again deposited his feet upon
the man's waistcoat. And now ensued
a fight between Costello, the sailor
and the mule; Costello, v/ho was
highly incensed at the conduct of the
man, endeavored to hold the mule, so
as to have the man taken ? rom the
ring; and the man stuck to the !?nl<>
in a steady and persistent foot right.
Which of thc two latter wo lld have
conquered is unknown, as the trial
was soon brought to a sudden termi?
nation by the summary ejectment (in
a very indifferent mannen of the
sailor from the ring. This, wt think,
is tho greatest fight on record, and
was certainly one of the most inte?
resting that we have ever seen. Cas
tello shoidd certainly engage that man
to exhibit with hi\a everywhere as
the man that can out-kick a mule.
Strange to say, neither animal was at
all injured by the encounter.
The Chicago Tribune says that "thc
President has shown his ban i." Let
tho Tribune's faction show itt hand
but wash it first.
Death must press heavily on that
man who too well known tc others,
dies in ignorance of himself.
Thc Next Cotton Crop.
Mr. Montfort Wells, an intelligent
and prominent planter in Rapides
Parish, Louisiana, has written a brief
but cogent letter to the Hon. Hugh
McCulloch on tho subject. Mr.
Wells thus writes:
RAPIDES, LA. , January 22.
Hon. H. McCulloch, Secretary of the
DEAR SIR: I observe a statement
going the rounds of the newspapers,
to the effect that two or three good
cotton crops are needed to place the
etirrency of the country on a sure
basis, and eventually to redeem it in
coin. I know nothing of political
economy, or of the requisites for a
sound national currency; bnt, if it
be true that the one thing needful is
ono or two good cotton crops, the
Government, in my opinion, has not
taken the steps necessary to insure
their production. Unless the plan?
ters can get assistance from factors,
or from the Government, the future
crops must be small indeed. But
few can get aid from cotton factors to
carry on their plantations on account
of the uncertainty of labor at this
time. Even after a plantation has
been furnished with stock, farming
utensils, kc, and the freedmen en?
gaged and set to work, often, for
some frivolous cause, or the desire of
changing their homes, they leave
without a moment's notice, when it
is impossible, on account of the
scarcity of labor, to till their places.
This has occurred to myself and to
some of my neighbors.
I think your estimate of the cotton
crop for this year (which I gather
from the newspaper) is entirely too
large. I fear it will not reach 1,000,
000 bales; it certainly will not exceed
th:rt amount. I base my opinion on
the fact that at least one-half of the
negroes formerly engaged in making
cotton have died, joined the army, or
gono out of the cotton region. Of
thc other half, many have gone to
cities, towns and villages, and those
who are engag" 1 in producing cotton
will not do moi.} than half the quan?
tity of work they formerly did. They
cannot be stimulated to work in any
manner, nor do they care to establish
a character for industry and steadi?
ness. In my own experience, I have
not had them to average more than
six hours of good and faithful work
per day, although they have shares in
The excise on sugar is much more
in proportion to its value than that
on cotton. The average price of
sugar is fifteen cents per pound. The
excise on cotton is two cents per
pound, though it sells for more than
forty cents per pound. The making
of sugar is more expensive than cotton
raising, on account of the greater un?
certainty of labor. I see it suggested
to increase the excise on cotton to ten
cents per pound. This would cause
less cotton to be planted, and in its
stead more corn and other such pro?
ducts as are purchased from the great
producing West. That section has a
large and direct interest in the suc?
cess of the Southern planters; we are
her best customers.
This note is from one who has
planted in this section pretty exten?
sively, both in cotton and sugar cane,
for forty-five years.
I have the he nor to be, sir, very
respectfully, your obedient servant,
DECLINE OP THE GOSPEL IN NEW
ENGLAND.-The Independent speaks of
the decline of the Gospel, or rather,
of an interest in the same, in the
State of Connecticut. It seems that
a large number of churches are with?
out congregations, and that the pay
of the clergymen is so paltry as to be
little above a starvation scale. That
an interest in religiou in all the New
England States should become slack
is not at all surprising, when we con?
sider the lengths to which the pulpits
there have been prostituted to base
and miserable partisan service. It is
not from the lack of a sincere reli?
gious sentiment that these churches
have been deserted. It is becanse
the congregations have become dis?
gusted with political parsons and
with their radical harangues, and
unless the evil be reformed altogther
wc fear the spread of religious feel?
ing in New England will be very
much restricted. Now that the re?
bellion is over and the country saved,
it is to be hoped our country parsons
will turn thair attention to saving the
souls of sinners, and leave the mire
of politics to be dabbled in by those
whose affinities incline them that
way.-New York Herald.

Our correspondent in London is,
as his letters show, a gentleman of

higher character than those possessed

The French soldiers in the service
of Maximilian will, our London cor?
respondent assures us, be withdrawn
from Mexico, gradually, after the
close of next spring or at the begin?
ning of summer. But the number
which will return, under that move?
ment, to France, will not include all
the men at present serving Maxi?
milian in the army of occupation.
Very considerable numbers of them
will be transferred to the service of
the Mexican throne. A much larger
proportion of the officers of the
French trocps now in the country are
to receive commissions from Maxi?
milian; and thus will that Prince
maintain in his employment all the
machinery necessary for working a
large army. A system of land boun?
ties is to be originated, for stimulat?
ing a military emigration from Eu?
rope; and thus, while the transfers
from the French service, the impor?
tations of the foreign legion, and the
enlistments of native Mexicans, will
supply the rank and file of the army
intended to take the place of that of
Marshal Bazaine, those land bounties
will keei) it at the required strength

fact, we can see in the plans for sup?
plying the Mexican Emperor with
military material, the solution of thi
Mexican question in a fashion very
comforting to the soul of Maximilian.
The recognition of that Prince by
this Government is clearly foreshad?
owed in that state of facts; but, even
though Mr. Seward may have been
obliged, under the weakness of thc
domestic division caused by the
Radicals, to make those concession.1
