Hoi?' for thu South?
The prospect of a general war in
Europe has already begun to develop
itself in, a, vast emigration of the peo?
ple to this country. At the close of
our civil war, thero was an impetus in
thia direction, bnt the impending
general war on tho other side of the
M lau tic seems to have accelerated
the migration Westward. The ar?
rivals of emigrants from the different
couutries in Europe, for thc past five
months, have been greater this year
than for tho same space of time for
mauy years past. By late news from
Europe, (private letters as well as pub?
lished statements in tho newspapers,)
we. learn that large numbers of emi?
grants are awaiting, at the ports of
Europe, transportation to America.
The Nashville Union and American
properly inquires what is to be thc
result of all this extensive immigra
tiou? It is the duty of the philoso?
phic statesman to cast the result and
tell us whether it is good or evil for
ns, and, according to that judgment,
advise the proper steps to be taken
to encourage or check this rapid
growth of a foreign population. We
do not propose to discuss the matter
now. The South now needs labor,
and we extend to all tho new comers
the right hand of welcome and fellow?
ship. Wo have fertile lauds to culti?
vate; we have Ute great staple which
has supported so many of them at
home iu its manufacture. We will
give them ample opportunities to
make a better livelihood, either iu
the production or manufacture of
this staple, thau they ever had at
home; and our slave system of labor
having been done away with, the
field for the white artizan aud me?
chanic is thrown open to all.
The Union and American, inclosing
its article, says:
' ' The South ia as large as the
North, and is ready, at all times, to
compare products and resources with
any equal extent of the habitable
globe. We have been misrepresented,
and our population has been dwarfed
by the misapprehensions of the
world concerning our domestic insti?
tutions, and the unjust prejudices
created thereby. But that day has
gone by, and there is no ground for
their continuance. The Southern
people are anxious for a sober, in?
dustrious white population to occupy
their lands, and to have them reap
the fruits, rich, desirable and abun?
dant, which nature and art are ever
willing to bestow. They want all
classes of labor and enterprise-and
tho capital necessary to support and
sustain it and make it profitable.
These States offer advantages for re?
munerative employment, unsurpassed
by any other "portion of the world
and their people are lil?eral, just and
true. Let the honest and virtuous
immigrant come among us from any
part of the world, and he will never
have any goo/ cause to regret it."
The above paragraph is the ex?
pression of our own opinions in re?
lation to the question. We want tho
class of labor referred to, to develop
the rich resources of the South, and,
if wc eau obtain it, there is a bright
future yet for thc now suffering States
of the South.
Among the many inducements
which oiler themselves to the South?
ern people to engage in tl ie manufac?
ture of their leading staple, (and we
have already noticed a number of
them,) thero is still another to which
we would diroct attention, and that
is the proposed tax of five cents per
pound on cotton. The iniquity of
this proposition will be more fully
understood when we reflect that it is
an export tax. The South may ship
her cotton to New England spindles
and looma without paying the tax,
Ilms not only depriving her people
of importing return cargoes for their
cotton, but actually giving the Lowell
factory kings the advantage of five
cents per pound over the foreign
buyer aud manufacturer.
Tho radicals, in their wild career
ol' legislation, are over reaching
themselves. Five cents a pound will
go far to defray the expenses of manu?
facturing the raw material on the
spot where it is grown, and, of course,
tliis additional incentive to our people
to engage in this new branch of in?
dustrial pursuits is so patent and
self-evident, that it does not require
much elucidation. "Let 'er rip," as
a Mobile paper said the other day;
the South, in the end, will be tho
gainer from all such foolish legisla?
tion us that now being burned upby
the radicals Congress

Now and then the people of tue
North can learn the truth about mat?
ters itt the Southern States, .through
correspondente of tlieir own journals.
Under tho caption of "Affairs at tho
South," a correspondent of tho New
York Times records the following
pleasing and instructive iuo??eii?>>.
"I was present, Yesterday, at a
moat interesting and impressive cere?
mony, which deserves Bpeeial notice,
as illustrative of the feeling of the
white for the black race, and of the
sincere desire of the former to pro?
mote, as far as possible, the temporal
and spiritual welfare of the hitherto
" The occasion ?wa? the ordination,
by the Presbytery, of three colored
men as Presbyterian ministers, to
take pastoral charge of exclusively
colored congregations, who had peti?
tioned for separate organization nu?
der their own minister and govern?
"The cordial and prompt manner
in which their request wa? granted ;
the earnest interest manifested by the
clergymen and laymen, on whom the
executive duty devolved; the intelli?
gence and theological knowledge of
the candidates for ordination, as dis?
played in their discourses, delivered
asa test of their qualifications; thc
order and becoming demeanor of the
large assemblage of colored people
who came to witness the ceremony,
and the charges of the Presbyterian
clargymen appointed to address the
new pastors of their flock, were all
very gratifying, and afforded cheer?
ing promise of thu future relation?
of the two races, if left to them?
"One of the candidates for orders
was a negrc mau named Robert, born
a slave in the family of Hon. Howell
Cobb, ?md although nominally un in
voluntary servant, in fact as free all
his Ufe aa he is now, having earlj
learned the trade of a wheelright am
carriage-maker, and, for many years,
one of the best and most skillful ot
his trade in this city, protected and
encouraged by his late muster on ul
occasions. Among the most interest
ing features of the proceeding, wa?
the presence of Gov. Cobb, who
after the ceremony, was the first t<
take Robert by the hand and con
grat?late him on his elevation, nm
the evident gratification which tin
new minister felt and expressed at th?
presence and good will of his forme
owner. The two other colorod minis
ters were men of like standing am
character, ami have, for some years
been preachers or exhortera, but nu
qualified to administer the coin
uiunion, solemnize matrimony, o
perform the other functions of tu
ordained clergyman. Numbers o
gentlemen of position and influeuc
were present, and one of the Presley
tory, au eminent lawyer, advanced i
life, and in very feeble health, tr?
veled over a hundred miles in bi
buggy, to take part in the ordination
"These are the true signs of th

I "That no person shall lie deemed

Tho following pungent articlo is
from the Richmond Timen:
The English people und politicians
have a wonderful disposition to con?
cern themselves with tho business of
other people .lust now they arc
discussing with a degree of interest
and profundity the question of our
national debt in n manner that is
truly refreshing, ir is very gratify?
ing to find that we have friends
abroad who take so much solicitude
upon themselves touching our wel
I fare, and especially our national
debt. One would think that their
own debt furnished them enough
food for reflection, but it seems in
snfllcient for their intellectual occu?
pation and enjoyment. Tho magni?
tude of our debt, and the rapidity
with which it was created, seems to
have impressed them with the most
overwhelming admiration. And yot
so high is tho opinion which they
pit-tend to have of our solvency, that
Mr. Gladstone, in a recent speech,
characterized our ?lebt as a mere
"flea bite." Heaven protect us from
such "Ilea bib s." The bites of onad
dogs and moccasin snakes would
hardly give ns greater inconvenience,
and would, perhaps, lie easier to
cure than to pay oft' our debt.
lt is really amusing to see what
spams our nat ional debt seems to be
giving thc English. Here is what
Mr. (Hadstono says about it, and he
is not Hie only on?; who has expressed
his admiration :
"Thedt-btof the United States is
in itself something wonderful-won?

strictly ?>f 'our years, and no moro,
ami yet amounting to nearly three
thousand millions ol' dollars, or six

rate of growth of tho debt in the

hundred millions pounds. That is a
wonderful debt, ami, its charge is
enormous, lt is not possible, in the

We thoroughly agree with these
Englishmen; our debt is indeed
"wonderful," so wonderful that there
are many people in the Union (uol
in the South, for the South is not in
the Union,) who seem to be proud ol
thi., debt. What reflections thej
make tho basis of this exhibition ol
pride, we confess ourselves utterly
unable to discover or explain; unless
they think that our greatness is to bi
measured l>y the amount of our in
dchtcditess. They see* in to th Ulli

Mr. Davis is io Ix? tried for the
alleged offence of treason against tho
United States, and will, of ?purse, bc
convicted, as per1 order; even that
once fair dealing sheet, the National
Intelligencer, speaking of him as "in
tho iron gra^p of the law, before
whoso awful tribunal ho is about to bo
arraigned, with a judge and jury of a
character to satisfy thc most unmer?
ciful of his enemies, and from which,
to speak in the mildest terms, he can
by no possibility escape full retribu?
tion." His murder, therefore, being
already predetermined, it is not pro?
posed to discuss the matter from an
American stand-point, but present it
as it will strike the European eye,
and stand hereafter, in ita bloody
truth, on the page of universal his?
"Treason against the United
States, " says the Federal Constitu?
tion, "shall consist only in levying
war against them, or in adhering to
their enemies, giving Hiern aid and
comfort;" but, under this showing, it
will be hard work to persuade Europe
that tho death of Mr. Davis is other
than a judicial assassination. "The
United States" has, in the distinctive
language of diplomacy and public
law, a peculiar meauiug, and this
meaning, rest assured, will never be
altered by Christendom to suit the
purposes of a victorious section in a
civil war. Prior to the 20th dav of
December, 1860, "the United States"
was, in the eye of Europe, the name
of a confederation of thirty-two
North American States. By the 12th
of August, 1861, when Missouri
wheeled into line, the United States
of North America had, so far as foreign
nations were concerned, ceased te
exist. On the one side, they behehl
twelve States, calling themselves
Confederate, with an army, a navy,
a civil establishment, a currency, am
a policy of their own. On the other
twenty-one States, calling themselves
United, with a like distinctive army
navy, civil establishment, currency
and policy. But nowhere the oh:
"United States," as that phrase wa
understood in all Federal laws
treaties, articles of confederation, ot
Constitution, from 1778 to 18G1
That United States was disrupted
into the united States of the Nortl
and the united States of the South
and s<> remained for years. Thei
came victory to the twenty-one State:
and subjugation to the twelve. It ii
not for the vanquished to give law t<
their vanquishers, and the victor
had everything their own way. I
was loudly proclaimed that the twen
ty-one Northern united States were
and had been, the whole (thirty-three
United States, and that those win
had fought against them (the tweuty
one) had in reality fought agaius
the whole thirty-three, themselve
included. What could the twelv
Southern united States of the ol
Federal United States do? Sim pl;
nothing. They had been beaten i:
arms, and wore impotent in speech
Their leader was taken, was tried
he who had led twelve States agaius
twenty-one for waging war tm thirtj

States to hold themselves out as i
