THE CCIITURE op KICK.-"Before
the negroes were emancipated, the
annual production of Cooper River
was ?bout 20,000 tierces of Tice, ave?
raging 625 pounds a tierce; but lost
year, the first season a crop was
planted by employment of free labor,
not more than 800 tierces-were made;
a sad falling off, indeed."
The foregoing is from the pen of
Dr. Irving, ou Cooper River, South
Carolina. In the production of rice,
the falling off in that State and Geor?
gia will be as bad this year as it was
last. It will be the story over again
of Jamaica, and its productions.
Eight hundred tierces as against
twenty thousand on one river alone, '
and that, we believe, the least pro?
ductive of all known as rice rivers in
South Carolina ! ? 'What a falling off"
is here, "my countrymen!" The
rice lands of the South constituted a
large portion of its wealth before the
war. That they may again do so is
possible, but not probable. If Dr.
Irving's opinion should prove to be
correct, and we do not doubt that it
is, the culture of rice in the South
may be considered as abandoned ; for
such results S3 have flowed from it
the past year, and promises to flow
from it the present year, through the
labor of freedmen, cannot "keep up"
the "old plantations." We shall
know rice no mere as a daily diet, but
as an article of luxury, in which the
rich can only indulge. "Who knows
what a day may bring forth ?"
