Wednesday Morning, Sept. 5, 189$,
Tine Great Want of tia? South.gf \
As we have .said on several. O?0*-.
sions, tho groat want of tho South at
thia time is -an extensive system of
manufacturing; and in thia dopart
ment of industry, ottr staple-cotton
-takes th? firs place. It does so in
Old and New England for the*reason
that ita manufacture is profitable,
arising rrxsm tts fact' that tho pro?
ducts of the spjmdleand the loom are
itniversaUy used by consumers.
In calling attention to this subject,
we will cite the largest cotton manu
factu lng town in America-Lowell.
In tb-) factories in that place, the ag?
gregate capital invested is stated at
$13, OOO, OOO. The amount of cotton
consumed is 100,000 bales; the num?
ber of yards, exclusive of yarns, is
.something over 100,000,000, and the
number af . operatives is 12,000
mostly women and girls. It is esti?
mated that it would require at least
?15,860 field laborers to raise this cot?
ton, and yet it is converted into
yarns and cloths by 12,000 operatives.
The process of manufacturing cotton
about doubles its value, and tho :ive
rage dividends declared by tho Lowell
mills is 33 per cent. It ought to be
recollected in this calculation, that
these New England manufacturers
have to pay freights, commissions,
and other charges, before they can lay
cotton down at their mill doors; there?
fore, considering these charges, the
Southern manufacturer, it might be
very reasonably estimated, could
make a nett profit of 50 per cent.
Om neighboring State of Georgia
has'taken the lead in engaging in this
department. Her journals are con?
stantly informing us of the establish?
ment of ?iew manufactories, and large
subscriptions to the capital Mock of
the new companies. This subject is
also attracting attention in Alabama.
Governor Parsons has addressed an
interesting letter in relation to the
matter to the directors of the Alaba?
ma and Georgia manufacturing com?
panies, and the people of the whole
South wiU find it to their interest to
embark in the business.
The National Intelligencer, in notic?
ing Gov. Parsons' letter, very truly
says that in this respect a new era
has opened for the Southern States,
and the sooner the people accommo?
date themselves to it, the better for
them and the whole country. This
is the truth; and au additional incen?
tive to.the Southern people to engage
in tho manufacture of cotton is the
last unjust tax of three cents a pound
on cotton exported.
In addition to the reasons already
urged, the question of labor adds an?
other, very cogent, and which neces?
sitates a change in the industrial pur?
suits of our people. The old system
of extensive planting passed away
with that which enabled planters tc
raise their own laborers on tho plan?
tation, and by their natural increase
and pecuniary value, enabled him tc
ndd aero to acre, and field to field,
and inducing him to half cultivate th?
old plantation, or abandon it entirely
t o seek new and rich lands. Cottor
was speeie, and the whole energies o:
Southern planters were concemratec
and devoted to raise every pound pos
sible, to the neglect of stock-raining
or even the production of tho neces
?ary amount of provisions. Thus
while the New Englander, in everj
department of manufactures-fron
that )f a fine carriage to a broom
recei ed a large portion of tho profit;
of co ton-raising, the North-west sup
plied what tho planters themselvoj
might have raised, viz: horses, mules
bacon, lard, &c.
This system, we repeat, has passet
away with the abolition of slavery
The area of culture must become con
tracted, or rather sub-divided arnon?
many farmers-in the end, yielding
as much, if not more, than the forme:
slovenly modo of cultivation. Th
surplus profits of tmch a system wil
seek new channels of investmapt, an(
there is none hali BO attractive, o
which will prove half so profitable, a
the manufacture of the staple growl
on their fields. And besides, an ex
tensive system of cotton rnanufactur<
will most assuredly be accompanier
by the manufacturo of other article;
of necessity and convenience, whicl
heretofore the planters' crops of cot
ton paid roundly for to an uninandi
people. . ^ .

and squanders her money.
TheJSew Tori? ^Comm**?iaI, one pf
the bitterest M? 'fkf .Republican
sheets in that^ity, au4 which at ope
time was for converting tho States of
'the South into territories, now thinks
that they are entitled to representa?
tion, and that there is but one proper
course to pursue. It is of tho opi?
nion that the Southern representa?
tives should be admitted into Con?
gress at once, without regard to tko
past, upon merely taking an oath o?
'fidelity to the Union. It says that
Congress, as well as the Executive,
should henceforth be kept strictly
within t?iolimits of the Con stitution,
and avoid all legislation that inter
I feres ?with individual action. It adds :
'.If Congress and the Federal Go
i vernment attack no interest of tho
! several States, these ?""n have no
; cause of ill-feeling aga.^st the Fede?
ral Government, and peace and good?
will will soon reign once more among
those who should ever have acted and
considered themselves as brethren,
having one common interest, and
being all benefited by the prosperity
This is the truth pretty forcibly
said, and if it can curb the rampant
leaders Of its party; we may look for
peace and restoration.
The New York Evening Post has
also considerably modified its tone,
and the following extracts contain re?
flections worthy of consideration.
After scouting tho proposition, that
there is immediate danger of another
sectional conflict, it says:
"There is plenty of hot-blood on
both sides; there are-but too many
reckless and unscrupulous men in
every State ready to seize upon thc
first occasion to rekindle civil war.
But let the people remember that
such a step is fatal. It will be, a?
the spectator rightly remarks, ''wai
besido every hearth," it will Mexi
canize the country, it will destroy
liberty here at once and forever, a>
well as peace and prosperity. A re?
newal of civil war under an j* possibh
pretext, now, will be simply ruin tc
the country; it will hand us o ?or ti
interminable disorders; it will sub
vert the Constitution, and set ur.
over our heads a despotism. Th<
authors of such a misfortune wonk
be cursed forever as tho enemies no
only of tho American people, but o
the causo of tho people everywhere
"To avert such a misfortune is th?
duty of all good men in every part o
the country. But to avert it we neex
moderation in language and in aa
tion, on all sides. Noue but carefu
and judicious men should be electe<
to Congress, and the people shouh
sternly rebuke all immoderate o
exciting language or conduct every
where. There is blame on every side
the leaders of all parties seem to tem
to extreme measures, toinnanimator,
appeals, to the use of language whos
only object and effect is still furthe
to irritate the people of ono soctio:
against the other.
"Now, all this is wrong; it is mis
chievous, dangerous. There are to
many bad men in both sections read
to take advantage of tho irritatio
and passion of men in authority, an
to interpret literally what is uttere
in Congress or from the White Hous
in haste and anger. It is time for a
true men to stand firm, and to unit
in such action and such an expressio
of public opinion as will bring us n
quickly as possible back to all tb
safe-guards of strict constitution;
government. There is no safety oui
side of that; thc danger grows great?
every day of a total wreck of the shi
of State. There ie but oue remedy
but one line of safety, and that is t
re-establish all constitutional forms t
once, and to put all the parts of tli
Government machinery in open

A PHOTOGRAPH.-That amiable
old lady, Mrs. Swisshelm, says of
Miss Minnie Beam, who received the
$10,000 order for a Lincoln statue:
"She is a young girl, about twenty,
hus emly been studying her art a few
months, never made a statue, has
some plaster busts on exhibition in
thc capitol, including lier own, mi?
nus clothing to tho waist, lias a pretty
face, with a tnrn-np nose, bright
black eyes, long dark curls and plen?
ty of them, wears a jockey hat and a
good thad of jewelry, sees all the
members at their lodgings or the re?
ception room in the capitol, urges her
claims fluently and confidently, sits
in the galleries in a conspicuous posi?
tion, and in her most bewitching
dress, while those claims are discussed
on the floor, and nods and smiles as
a member rises and delivers his opi?
nion on the merits of tho case, with
the air of a man sitting for his picture ;
and so she carries the day over Pow?
ers, and Crawford, and Hosnier, and
MATTERS I* MOKMONDOM.-The
Chvat Salt Lake City correspondent
of tho New York Time.'; says: The
County and Territorial elections came j
off on the Oth ult., and resulted in
the election of the candidates on the
"people's ticket"-Mormon. An op-j
position ticket (Gentile) was expected,
and, as a consequence, there was cou- i
siderable machinery sot at work to !
defeat it. This example is sufficient
to show that the Gentile element
grows in Utah, o nd that the Mormons
j see the necessity of their striving to
I letuin the political supremacy which
they have ever held iu this Territory.
But the expected Gentile ticket did
not appear, and tho followers of the
Mormon idea won an easy victory.
Theatricals aro not very brisk in j
Utah, there being no other than local
talent performing there. Melodra?
mas, comedies, farces and petite dra?
mas are the staple offered. Julia Dean
Hayne has gone to Montana, and
from there she will como East, after
un absence of several years.
Gen. Spinner, United States Trea?
surer, has decided that tho ouly pro?
tection to the owner against tho pay?
ment of a bond or 7-30 note that may
have been stolen, is by entering a
caveat at the office of the Secretary of
the Treasury. Coupons aro as nego?
tiable at all times as a bank note, and
will be paid in the hands of a third
party and bona fide holders, even in
j the case where it is known that they
i have been stolen.
THE TRANSFUSION OF BLOOD.-It is
i announced that the wonderful medi?
cal operation of tho transfusion of
blood from the body of a healthy
person to that of a sickly ouo has
just been performed at Vienna. This
method of transfusion is but rarely
resorted to, and only in cases of ex?
cessive debility, when all other remo
j dies fail.
The negro arrested for the murder
of Mr. Carter, of Clinton, Miss., has
been released, as the evidence proved
him to be justified in the homicide.
FoasaoN OFIMOJ?S.-The London
Morning Post says:
"It is fortunate, under such cir?
cumstances, that the republic has for
its Chief Magistrate such a mannas
Andrew Johnson. The honesty with
which be has endeavored to reconcile
the differences of the antagonistic
States, and the sound statesmanship
he has shown in his efforts to recon?
struct the Union on the only possible
sound basis--namely, the equal re?
cognition of the rights of all its citi-1
zens-have secured for him the re?
spect of every true friend of that
great republic. Against the narrow
minded prejudices of those whom, in
the first flush of victory, the Repub?
lican party sent to Congress, he can
do little moro than protest. That
protest may or may not be availing,
but such as it is, he deems it his duty
to make it-not doubting, however,
that the moral support accorded to
him by the bulk of his fellow-citizens
will give to it an efficacy which no
hostile majorities in Congress can
The London Telegraph says:
"The struggle between the two
great sections into which the North is
still divided has indeed assumed a
character far more bitter and enve?
nomed than we were prepared to wit?
ness; and even when we have made
every allowance for the extravagant
language that is characteristic of our
American cousins, enongh remain to
justify the gravest forebodings. All
the siigacious statesmanship of An?
drew Johnson will be needed to guide
his country safely through the peri?
lous straits iu which the ship of State
is again threatened with destruction;
but we are confident that his powers,
already so severely tested, will once
more provo equal to the emergency."
CAPITAL FOR THE RADICALS.-The !
radical pa}' irs eagerly catch np every
expression of dissatisfaction uttered
by the Southern press with reference
to the action of the Philadelphia
Convention, and use it against the
Northern conservatives. The Cin?
cinnati Gazette quotes extracts from
some of tho Richmond papers, and
makes the following comment upon
"Doolittle & Co. cannot muzzle
the Southern people as they muzzled |
the Southern delegates. The former
axe speaking right out and telling the
truth. We respect them for this,
just as wo respect an honest opinion,
though we may believe it to be er?
roneous. No ono expects, aud no
honest man pretends to expect, the
Southern rebels to change, under
defeat, principles for which they
fought five years. For this reason we
aro opposed to transferin g the Gov?
ernment to their hands, or permitting
them to participate in its m an a ge -

DSATU FROM EATING BOLOGNA
SAUSAGE.-On last Wednesday morn?
ing. Mr. Dumond, a citizen of Dover
Hill, Martin County, in this State,
bought some bologna sausage, and
j took it to his house, of which his
I wife and a child and himself ate
! rather freely. In a very short time
his wife and child were taken very
sick. The wife vomited freely and
soon recovered. Tho child was dead
in about two hours after eating. Mr.
D. himself eat some more in the af?
ternoon, and was taken just as the
woman and child had been. Drs.
j Bever and Elrod were called to his
I assistance, and, by the aid of their
: united skill, together with a vigorous
j constitution, he recovered. The next
? morning a small piece of the same
j sausage was given to a eat, which
! proved fatal in less than thirty mi
! mites.- Vincennes (Ind.) ?inn, 2$th.
Thomas II. Watts, formerly Go
? vernor of Alabama, and more recent
I ly Attorney-General of the Confede
I racy, wrote a letter in reference to the
I Philadelphia Convention, in which
I he said: "We wish to show the true
i men of tho North that tho most ram?
pant secessionists among ns are now
! willing to support the Constitution of
I the United States, and the Union
j thereunder, recognizing the two great
facts which the war has accomplished,
viz: tho destruction of slavery aud
the denial of tho right (perhaps I
should say power) of a State to se?
cede. If the North cannot admit us
! to an equal participation in all the
j benefits of the Union on such terms,
i we shall then do tho best we can."
GEN. BCTLER.-The Lu Crosse De?
mocrat throws the following large
sized brick at the hero of Big Be?
Ben. Butler tho National Spoon

doubtless briug along his Italic eyes
and purloining disposition, for which
reason children of tender years should

, portable property locked up.
GEN. TILSON.-A Washington de?
spatch states that Gen. T?son has
boen ordored to resumo his position
as Freedmen's Bureau Commissioner
at Augusta, which seems to indicate
there is no foundation in the report
that ho was to succeed Gen. Howard

The radicals are fearfully worried
by Mr. Henry J. Raymond. He tells
them that: ?
"There ia an absolute identity of
sentiment and principie between the
Baltimore * platform of the Union
party in 1864, and. that adopted at
Philadelphia last week."
The radicals of conrse swear "vigor?
ously that the two platforms ure
widely different, or at least that they
were meant to be. To which Mr.
Baymond coolly responds, "Gentle?
men, I ought to know what they
mean, for I am the author of both of
them/' ? - -
To BE BEMOVED.-A gentleman
from the North reports that Gen.
Foster, the commandant, is to he
removed from Florida, and all the
negro troops with him. The white
troops that were attacked by cholera
off Savannah, and have been quaran?
tined en Tybee Island for some time,
are.to replace them. We are told
that Gen. Foster has been guilty of
many acts of oppression, and his
removal wal be hailed with joy hy?

Ax ATTRACTINE STYLE.-Mrs. Har?

devoutly subscribe: "If the different
churches of a city woidd ereot a build?
ing where there should be a billiard

TUE FOREIGN WAIL-A foreign cor?
respondent of thc New York Times
asks: "What has now happened in
Germany?" and m answering the
question says that, iu a few weeks,
the German Con federation has been
destroyed by a war which was h."jgun
hy Prussia as a war of secession, by
the Federal authorities us u war of
coercion-but which soon degene?
rated into a war of conquest on the
Prussian side, and a war of weak and
hopeless defence 011 the side of the
supporters of thc Federal cause, in
whose ranks want of resolution and
capacity, together with certain seces?
sionist schemes of their own, made
energetic action impossible. The re?
sult has been tho reverse of what has
happened in tho United States. Tho
secessionist power- Ls dictating the
peace on its own conditions, pro?
claiming the right of conquest over
the greater number of the members
of the former Confederation, ejecting
Austria from the national community.
Tho writer adds that Prussia, be?
ginning with acting tho part of the
Southern States of the American
Union, now ends with performing
that of the Northerners in tuging the
right of conquest against those whose
resistance has proved insufficient, but
who still have boon, and must remain,
members of tho same nation with the
Prussia has been successful in
making, the United States have been
successful in suppressing, a revoln
; tion within a nation constituted under
' Federal laws. Ia thia lies all the
; similarity and all the difference of the
j two cases.
