Tuesday Morning, August 2?,^|866.
The Address ami DeclaraticA of
Principles issuc?f by the ^riladerphin
Convention, will be read with interest
Although some of tho resolutions
might have been very properly omit?
ted, yet on tho whole, and under
existing circumstances, the work of
this body will receive the approval oi
thc people of tho South-__
We may now safely say that the
proceedings of thc Convention, taken
in connection with President John?
son's remarks lo the committee from
that body, published iu the Phoenix
on Sunday, give us au assurance that
the days of the radical faction ere
numbered, and that the work of res?
toration will be speedily and complete?
ly perfected. President Johnson hal
done much towards this happy con?
summation, but there remains much
still to be done. In his remarles tc
the New Hampshire delegation, he
fully endorsed the .principles ape]
policy set forth? and indicated thai
in future, every mau appointed te
office, would bo required to sustain
them. Wc think, then, that ho if
now complete master of the position,
and with the aid of the i rue and
patriotic men of tho country, ho will
be enabled to steer the ship pf statt
safely to the harbor of peace? *?* k
We subjoin the closing scene ol
the Convention. The motion having
been mado to adjourn sine die, th?
Chairman, Senat or Doolittle, said:
GENTLEMEN or THE CONVENTION
For the kindness and courtesy bj
which yon have unstained the Chair,
in the efforts to which, by your r?solu
tiou, you have been pleased to al
lude, I return you my sincere thanks.
Before putting that motion, whicl:
shall terminate thc proceedings of this
Oouventiou, I shall ask you once
more to join with tho Bev. Wilban;
Elliott in invoking the benediction ol
Almighty o od, by whoso support vrt

The Bev. Mr. Elliott thereupoi
made an eloquent prayer, returning
thanks for the harmony bf the heart/
which had been manifested through
out the Convention, for the apiri
of conciliation seen in all'its mern
bera and in all proceedings; for ttu
blessings which now crown tin
nation, and especially for the Presi
dent of the United (?rote?, so worth;
of his situation and position.
The Chair then, at, half-past 1:
o'clock, put the question, and au
non need that tho Convention stooi
adjourned without day.
The band played tho appropri?t
air of "Home, Sweet Home."
Cheers were given for Presiden
Johnson and Senator Doolittle, am
then the members and spectator
At a meeting of the National Unto

Significant, says the Examiner,
what? It is significant of a wi
knowu principle of human natur
and one that is most honorab
to it. Men in tho midst of excit
ment and passion bestow their n
plause on nuccess; but when the fe?
ings have subsided to their usu

to a scrutiny that often makes n m

President Johnson and Gen. L
will be recognized in all their purit

^Althou?h-Are ?hink;ri there is no.
tfrobabait-y HT c#ton -?allilig to the1
'rate of priceg. before the war, until iii
' is Bebb wnSt free America can prodnoe,
we have always urged that tho Indian
cultivator must ultimately be pre?
pared for competition with Iiis old
rivals in tho Southern States. As the
prices of commodities always tend to
accommodate themselves to the cost
of production, so the cost of raising
cotton under tho new system in
? -America*, *w??f f-or'a'Tbng'lime deter?
mine ; .10 price which the Indian
cultivator will be likely to obtain.
Tho delusion that negroes when freed
will dbl'work industriously,, is one
that is supported only by ignorance
or prejudice. There have already
been proofs afforded, in America, of
their willingness tb work, and their
power to produce more than under
slavery. Tf their late masters do
not, like the planters in Jamaica,
endeavor to thwart the proper
exercise of free labor, it is fairly to
be expected that the American crop
of 1867 will exceed the largest under
slavery. It does not follow, even
then, that the price of Indian cotton
must be depressed to tho rates ruling
in 185G. Thereat difference to 1>e
looked for as regards the negroes is
this--they wjlf expgct.and must get a
higher rate of remuneration. They
will probably do more work than
under slavery, and they will do it
better, but they will require to have
spout on them afar larger amount of
capital than before. Had it been
otherwise, their masters would not
'havefought so tenaciously in defence
of the great institution ; but the con?
sumers of cotton will- have to pay
port of the additional eost which free
I labor will cause to enter into the
i price of American cotton.
! Indian cotton eau be raised at a
' less cost, to the producer than any
' other in the world; the assessment of
j thc laud is much below the real
i value of tho soil, and the labor in
j mere cotton production can generally
be supplied wholly by the family of
the ryot. In 1856, cotton was sold at
Nagpore at l^d. per pound, and
over 400,000 bales were exported from
Bombay. This low price was, we
believe, remunerative to the growers,
but the yjearafterwards they obtained
2*><fd: on trie spot, and nearly a third
more cotton was exported from the
central provinces. In 1368, the price
%t Nagpore,- had risen to 3,Vjd., but
j that year TT pinch smaller quantity
i was exported than in 1856, simply
j because much of tho land required its
j usual rotation of crops, the necessity
I of which the "ignorant" ryot under
I stands so well. These prices, even
! yet, would be remunerative to the
I ryots in the best cotton districts; aud
1 if we compare them with the present
j and probable pri?es in the Liverpool
i market, it is evident there is likely to
j be, for another season at least, a fait
commercial profit on the chief ex?
port trade of Bombay. But thc
period for extravagant prices and
wild speculation in cotton has pass
j ed away; and when existing obliga
i tiona are disposed of in some way, thc
j new men who may step forward to
take the place of ruined merck? ntt
will probably take a more sober esti
I mate of things than their immediate
j predecessor have done.
