Saturday Morning, Sept. 15,18G6.
There was ono error, among many
others, to which, before the-rupture
between the North and the South,
the public journals of the latter sec?
tion frequently called tho attoutiou
of their readers. Tbis was the very
silly aud extravagant custom of send
i ug their children to Northern schools.
We lind imagintod that' the civil war,
nndjmore especially its disastrous re?
sults, would haye effected tho chauge
in this respect which the lectures aud
u?^H?wiftir>ng o?'Southern- journalists
failed to accomplish; but,we are afraid
we ure again doomed to disappoint?
There must be some ground for the
queries of a Memphis paper, when j
it asks: Why is it that men, who
claim tobo true Southern men-some I
of them warm advocates of secession |
-are sending their sons and daugh- I
ters to Northern schools? Why should
money be taken from the impoverish
ed South and sent to swell tho over- |
flowing coffers of the North? Have i
we no Southern teachers, who can
teach these young girls and boys,
that they must bo placed under the
charge of Yankee Presbyterians, who
wern so hdly audpnre that thoy could
-not affiliate with their Southern lireth
ren in ibo St. Louis General Assembly,
unless they would confess they were
und had been .sinners all their lives?
Aro we so ready tc? acknowledge our
inferiority, that wo mast take tho
money left in tho South to eduoata
otu* sans and daughters at Northern
schools, that they may be taught that
we aro ell traitors and criminals of
the highest grade?
Some of the.se questions are perti?
nent, and are entitled to the consi?
deration of the people; but in treat?
ing <nx this subject, we would simply
discuss ii on the basis of common
sense. In the first place, the parents
of tito Soutli, generally speaking,
cannot alford to send their children
to Noti?iorn hoarding schools; they
ure extravagant aud expensive beyond
tue mere-additional outlay for a pro?
per outfit and traveling expenses.
Secondly, in the main, they are not
- superior-no, nor equal-to the in?
stitutions of learning now to bo
found in every Southern State, aud
all experience in the past justifies this
assertion. And even if, in tho past,
when "rich Southerners" could afford
it, it was deemed necessary to finish
off with tho tinsel of &howy accom?
plishments acquired at these famous
(at a distance) seminaries, to pro?
perly qualify the children of thc
South to enter tho "society" for
which they were destined, yet, at the
present time, there is small pretexts
for such pretensions.
In the third place; we are convinced
that in tho numerous institutions of
learning established throughout the
South-many of them recently
there can be obtained a sounder and
bettor education-that there will bo
found os able, if not abler, professors
and teachers in every department
that a moro moral and healthful in
ilnenec will be exercised over tho
pupils, than can be found or furnish?
ed in the boasted Northern semina?
ries or academies, with their flaunt?
ing, showy preceptresses, or their
supercilious, puritanical professors
and teachers. Those are facts that
cannot be gain-say ed ; and it would be
well for parent-) to consider this sub?
ject, and remember it will add no?
thing to their daughters' eclat in
future, on entering into socioty, to
boast that she graduated at some
"Madame's fashionable Northern semi?
nary. The day for all that sort of
flummery and nonsense has passed
away-and we hope forever.
In the fourth place, every pupil
from the South who enters a North?
ern school or seminary, dips tho flag
of Southern independence in this re?
spect, and acknowledges tho supe?
riority of Northern civilization, lite?
rature and manners. Every dollar
spent for education there is tribute
paid to stilted arrogance, and a bla?
tant but unfounded assumption of
unapproachable excellence ir* every
department of letters. It is high
time tho Son thorn people should
abandon this sycophancy to a sclf
assumed elevated standard of supe?
riority, in all that relates to the social
duties and amenities of life. They
ought to teach their children, or have
them taught, that there is something
worthier to live for than to sport
gracefully the gew-gaw trumpery of
fashionable Hf?*? HighWPfHlty~ t?'

Ivy than ntorel/to 'Win s the ajfphVSfce
of the b#terflies$ tito forfrer,?>r
detract from the' fair ramo ?id re?
sources, of tho latter, from the dic?
tates of vanity or pleasure.
The South has failed to win politi?
cal independence, but in this higher
grade of that national attribute, there
are no lions in the path of its com?
plete accomplishment. It remains
with her matrons and sires whether
they will perfoiw their 0 dy xxx this
respect to their children and th cir .j
country,-or whether they will so act
as t? make applicable io themselves
the proverb that one of tho apostles
applier, to "the fool that returneth to
The Income front Cotton.
We published yesterday nu article
from the Augusta Chronicle and Sen?
tinel-against the abandonment of
, tito culturo of cotton by the South?
ern people-and agree with the
writer that it would be very foolish
I for them to do so. A limited culture
of the staple is desirable, and indeed
is, in a measure, forced upon us by j
tho. decrease in effective labor, and by i
the necessities of the planter for the
food requisite to raise cattle and
stock. Buta limited culture is compeu- j
sated by an increase iii value, and the
difference iu the various estimates,
therefore, does not affect the return
value in proportion bi the difference. ,
The lowest estimate wo have soon
is 1,250,000 bales, and the highest,
that of tho New York Mercantile
Journat, 2,000,000. Higher scatter- j
iug estimates have been made, but
we do not think on competent autho?
rity. Let tis take tho lowest and es?
timate tho average weight of tho
bales at 400 pounds each, and tho
price at twenty-five cents per pound,
and we have a gross income to thc
South of $125,000,000; the highest
estimate will increase that income to
j .9200,000,00o. Of course expenses
j labor, bagging, rope, Arc.-have to be
I deducted; but both our estimate in
weight and, we think, iu tho price,
I are below rather than above what
j will be realized.
This is au income that the South
eauuot dispense with, and two crops
of ?200,000,000 or 3250,000,000
will nearly set her right upon her
feet again. By that time, tho quan?
tity and quality of tho labor, either
white or black, will prohably be im?
proved, and tho cotton growing
?tates be prepared to enter upon, a
new career of prosperity and inde?
But, as in previous articles wc
have shown, ttic income from the
kingly staple direct to the South,
might be doubled, were her people
to engago in its manufacture. This
income would even bo more profitable
I than that derived from the simple
culture; for it would give employ?
ment to a large class of those among
us who aro not fit for field labor, and
thus diminish thc number of the poor,
and lighten the burden of taxation
in that proportion. So that, besides
an income of $400,000,000 or $500,
000,000, wo would render tho hum?
blest class of our population self-sus?
taining, and thus add to tho prosper?
ity and independence of the South.
This we believe to be the future mis?
sion of King Cotton; let him not,
then, be ruthlessly or rashly deposed.
A Southern correspondent of a New
York paper, in a recent letter, directs
attention to the fact that many of tho
disturbers of Southern peace, and the
most unscrupulous assailants of the
restoration measures of the Adminis?
tration, are occupants of Federal
offices, and iu receipt of pay from
the Government they abuse. This
is true, not only of individuals em?
ployed under the Freedmen's Bureau,
but of other officials, who derive
their power for mischief from their
connection with the Administration.
It is to be hoped, therefore, that the
cleaning ont process which has been
commenced in the North will by and
by bo extended to the South, where
thorough work is greatly needed.
There, if anywhere, perfect harmony
between the Executive and the office?
holder is a necessity.

The Empress Charlotte has paid
her Inst visit to the Emperor, and
there is no longer the slightest doubt
that his Mnjesty announced to that
Princess, with extreme regret, hisir
revoeablc resolution not to subacribo
to any of the nrnmj??ments -which j
sho hiul conic to proposo ns the

co/ It is now certain that thc Em
prc?s of Mexico .will not again return
to that country, and that the empe?
ror Maximilian viii soon join her in
Europe, niter having alidicated.
There is a rumor thnt ships of war
arc to bc fitted out ut Brest to cruise
on the coast ot' Mexico, and an at?
tempt has been made to raise the be?
lief that a last effort is to bo made, by
troops on board of them, in favor of
thc dynasty of tho Emperor Maxi?
milian; birt that idea is evidently not
serious, and if some ships of war arc
to be sent bi Mexican waters-which
assertion I do not guarantee-they
would moro probably have the mission
to protect French subjects who may
become involved in danger by tho
course of events.
On thc other hand, a Paris journal,
tho Memorial Di'pluvialiq ne, says:
Fur" from coming to Paris to present
thc name of her august consort any

j of abdication, as certain journals have

j conquered, and thone which still re
' main to be overcome in order to coin
plete, in an efheacious and durable
manner, tho political regeneration o?
Mexico. With the means of whicl
the Government of Maximilian 1 al
ready disposes, and those which th?
country could furnish, the general pa

THIRTY-TWO YEARS Aoo.-The New
] York Tribune, in a notice of Stephen
i A. Douglas, says:
It is thirty-two years, since Dong
j las, a poor wayfaring Yankee boy,
j went to seek his fortunes in. the
: State which afterwards honored him
I as one of her most eminent citizens,
i lie wandered early from his Green
j Mountain home, with . nothing but a
: plain New England education, and a
j determination to rise. Tired of cab -
; inet making and teachings he engaged
in what was called "studying law.''
! The fame of Jackson filled the laud,
j and the smart Yankee, not oppressed
i with scruples, saw that the sign .in
; Tennessee was the star of conquest.
His great rival, Lincoln, was keeping
a post-office, fresh'f rom the glories of
the Black Hawk war. Andrew John
i son was mayor of a little moan tai a
town in Tennessee; Jefferson Davis,
a lieutenant of dragoons, was chasing
the Indians; Seward was grieving
; over his defeat as Governor; Bred;
i arid ge was studying the orations of
I Cicero against Catadine, at a Kentucky
college; Citase was endeavoring to
; gain a law practice iu Cincinnati:
? Stinnner was entering the Boston bar;
Roderick was cutting ?tone; Grant
I was a school l>oy in his teens; Farra
I gut was watching the honor of his
I ting, on the torrid coasts of Brazil,
and tiie orator of to-day, tired of wai
: and law, had entered politics and
: become the New York Secretary ?I

THE MAINE EX^KCTION.--From de
i spatehes received, it appears that at
' the election held in Maine on Monday
; for Governor, Congressmen and mem
ben ?if the Legislature, the 'Republi?
cans carried every town and county
. by greater majorities than in previous
years. This is the result generally
\ ant ?oijKited. Ten counties have not
; been heard from? but they have,
: doubtlesss, gone as the rest.
