Will tho great "West submit to the
demands of Eastern rapacity in sac?
rificing the best interests of the
Southern people, and rendering
nearly valueless the wide domain
which, heretofore, has been oue of
the most prolific sources of the
wealth of the country? Will the
people who /urnish the bread of the
country submit to ruinous taxes and
tariffs, by which the Southern mar?
kets, for their products, are well nigh
The New Orleans Picayune takes
the ground that the West and not the
East should legislate for the South.
The issue of tho late contest was de?
termined by the Western armies of
Grant and Sherman. It was they
and not the genuine down-Easters
who broke the back bone of the
Southern Confederacy. When its
last Confederate armies dissolved and
surrendered, loud cries came up from
the East, claiming the defeated States
as conquered territories. But, if
conquered, none had so much right
to claim tho conquest and control the
disposition of it as the West, and yet
her people, thus far, has permitted
the East to monopolize the preten?
sions and functions of conqueror.
In treating this subject, the Pica?
yune says: a
"Will the West consent that, these
regions shall be ruined under the
exactions of Eastern monopoly, and
the harassments of Eastern isms?
Having stoutly won them in war, will
it weakly and foolishly abandon them
in peace? Let us hope that a West?
ern statesmanship will yet arise,
worthy to recall the memory of Ben?
ton, of Clay, of Douglas, which will
protest not in vain against throwing
away the acquisitions of Western
arms-against sacrificing the most
valuable results for the West involved
in the issue of the late war, the gua?
rantees, we mean, of the means of
preserving a close and profitable
commercial association and of effect?
ing a prudent ami advantageous
politic coalition with the States of the
lower Mississippi valley and of the
agricultural South in general. The
success of Southern secession would
have left the West exposed to thc
danger of becoming a helpless victim
of Eastern policy. Whether the de?
feat of secession will remove this
danger, is for the Western people to
determine. Most assuredly, the way
to avert it is not to assist, as so many
Western politicians are now doing,
in imposing Eastern policy on the
Wo have great hope that the peo?
ple of the West will bestir them?
selves in time, and effectually oppose
the march of the aggressive policy of
New England-a policy which would
keep the South crushed and helpless
and compel the West to pay tribute
to the princes of the loom and spin?
dle in Lowell. That policy is as de?
trimental to Western interests as it' is
ruinous to the South; but by a union
of these two sections, aided by the
conservatism of the middle States, it
may yet bo stricken down in its self
ishnes and ambition.
SIGNS OF WAK IN EUROPE. -A writer
in the National Intelligencer thinks
the resignation of Lord Cowley, Eng
- lish Ambassador in France, taking
place simultaneously with that of M.
Orouyn de l'Huys, the Emperor's
Foreign Minister, affords, to a cer?
tain degree, moral evidence of the
intention of his Majesty to change
his peaceful policy to one of war to?
wards Prussia. Lord Cowley being
an old personal friend of his Majesty,
would not have resigned if he had
not been urged by the most serious
political motives, and there is every i
reason to suppose that ho hos been
charged by Lord Derby to oppose a
war policy that might, nolens volens,
entangle Great Britain, at a timo
when her intestino commotions make
foreign and anti-German wara most
MONEY IN THE TREASURY.-Tho
Treasury Department, at the close of
business on Thursday, held in its
vaults $82,800,000 in gold, $64,500,
000 belonging to the Government.
Tho balance on gold certificates.
The daily gold receipts averago
$2,000,000 and $3,000,000, and the
disbursements betweeE this and the
1st of January will not exceed $40,
000,000. On November 1, $24,000,
000 is absorbed by interest on five
twenties, and on January 1, $10,000,
000 on ten-forties.
The equinoctial rains have been
unusually severe. Ohio, Indiana,
Missouri and Northern Kentucky
haye been drenched and flooded.
Tito Cotton Tax.
So much inconvenience to tbe
planter, and so many practical dif?
ficulties have arisen in the, collection
of the cotton tax, that the planters
of New Orleans and Mobile have
memorialized the Treasury Deport- \
mont on the subject. Tho memorial
sets forth that, under the law, plant?
ers and cultivators cannot move a
bale of cotton until it passes the sa?
traps of the Internal Revenue Com?
missioner. They cannot even send a
wagon-load to market, to purchase
provisions for plantation supplies,
until they go, hat in hand, and beg
some assessor or collector to weigh
their cotton and grant a permit to |
send it to*market. j
These assessors and collectors live j
in the towns, and do not go to the
cotton plantations. The planters,
therefore, must send the cotton t<?
them, and, with much delay and ex?
pense, obtain his certificate of the
payment of the tax, before be can |
sell. The producer has generally ex?
hausted all his means, and has no |
money to advance to the Government j
before his crop is sold.
The memorialists say that tho re?
striction imposed will soon seriously
affect the production of cotton, and
will thus act injuriously upon thc en?
tire financial condition of the country.
If the planter cannot ship his crop
to market, without being compelled
to sacrifice a large part of it to the
rigors imposed by onerous regula?
tions, he will naturally turn his atten- i
tion to a different system of agricul?
The remedy proposed for the con?
sideration of the Treasury Depart?
ment is, to include in one collection
district all the cotton-growing re?
gions, and allow tho producer or
factor to send bis cotton to any ship?
ping point in the district. The Go
vernment, by establishing suitable
regulations for receiving the cotton
at the point of delivery, would secure
a prompt payment of the i ax, with
less liability to frauds, at a smaller
cost to the Government, and in ft way
less expensive and annoying to the
planter and merchant.
The National Intelligencer says that
it is probable that the remedy will be
resorted to, as it is quite within the
power of the Secretary of the Trea?
sury to adopt it.
Firm? v?. Plantations.
The editor of the Petersburg Index,
on a recent ride through a highly
cultivated region of a Northern
State, chanced to occupy a seat by
the side of one of tho neighborhood
farmers, who was returning from
New York, where he had been making
a profitable disposition of his pro?
duce. In the course of conversation,
he replied to the query, "How much
land hero is enough to support an
average family comfortable?" by say?
ing that he got along very satisfacto?
rily on twenty acres. On expressing
surprise and venturing to ask the se?
cret, the farmer replied, he only knew
two: 1. "I work thoroughly. 2. ?
put six inches of manure on my land
every year-on every foot of it."
Hero is the instructive secret, by
which, in time, it is to be hoped the
farmers of the South will profit. As
wo have said on a former occasion,
the true way to restore the South's
prosperity is for large land-owners to
divide their plantations into farms of
twenty or forty acres, and lease them
to thrifty and industrious farmers
from abroad. Soil and climate in
the South are nil that could -bo de?
sired, and with a system of thorough
cultivation and manuring, these farms
might he cultivated like gardens,
yielding abundance for all.
The subject is heginniug to attract
attention in some of the Southern
States, and we trust will be considered
by all who have large tracts of lund,
but no labor to work them thoroughly.
By leasing these lands in lots to suit
tenants, or by dividing them into
farms to suit those who desire to pur?
chase, the whole rich domain of tho
South would blossom as the rose, and
an industrious, thriving population
would soon fill up her present de?
populated neighborhoods and towns.
Everything would flourish, and,
above all, independence in the va?
rions departments of human indus?
try, would crown th? effort. Wo think
this matter cannot bo too frequently
brought before our people, and when
one proprietor hos made tho experi?
ment, its results, we have no doubt,
will induce others to do the same.

vis, Yice-President Stephens, members of
the Cabinet, Mason and Slided, R. E. Lee.
G. T. Beauregard, and other distinguished
Generals. Some of the portraits are ex?
cellent, while others, including that of Mr.
Stephens, are not exactly correct-the lat?
ter gentleman appearing with quite a full,
round face, whereas it is known that he
has a very thin, long physiognomy. The
letter-press is of the very best, and re?
flects credit on the publishers, Messrs. E.

The book will he generally read, North as

considerable reputation during the war as
