Thc New Policy foi- thc South.
We publish elsewhere un article
from the New Orleans Picayune,
which treats in a masterly manner,
and fully embodies ideas which have
been advance. ! >. n several occasions
in the columns of the Phoenix. These
ideas are gaining ground, and we seo
they are being generally discussed by
our Southern eotenipornries. They
embrace two propositions -the more
thorough culture of Southern lands,
by abandoning the attempts to culti?
vate large tracts, and by erecting
The Mobile Times asked, a few
weeks ago, from the landlords of that
city, where they expected trade to
come from, to justify their exaction
' in the shape of high rents? And
well it might ask. The usual receipts
of cotton, heretofore, in that market,
wore from 700,000 to 900,000 bales;
now, the prospect-and it is doubtful
at that-is, that the receipts, this
year, will range from 200,000 to
250,000 bales. This is moro or less
the ease in every Southern market.
And, asks the Times, what is the fu?
ture before us?
If emancipation in other countries
has produced certain results-for in?
stance in St. Domingo and Jamaica
it ought to teach the Southern people
a lesson they must heed. Production
in those fertile regions has steadily
decreased, till, finally, St. Domingo
imports sugar, and Jamaica hardly
raises enough of thc sugar cane to
supply her blacks with rum.
To avert such a condition of things
here, as we have frequently said,
smaller tracts of land must be culti?
vated, and cultivated more thorough?
ly: and, on this point, our Mobile
c o temporary says :
"Although not us despondent as
some aro of the future of the South,
we again reiterate our warning to the
planters, that, if they persist iu cul?
tivating large estates, they will be ir?
retrievably broken before two years
have elapsed, and that their only
hope of salvation is in the sale, at
reasonable and easy terms, of most
ot' their arable land to actual settlers
from every quarter of the globe.'.'
W are gratified to see the policy
referred to gaining ground-to make
the most out of the soil by an im?
proved system of agriculture, and to
manufacture our own cotton. And,
in this connection, the statement in
reference to the labor system of the
North, and the immense amount of
work performed there by machinery,
contains most valuable hints to the
Southern agriculturists, aud suggests
another idea, which, if acted on, will
increase the prosperity of our section.
The paragraph is from a lette- of the
lion. John Forsyth to his paper, the
Mobile Register. He writes from
"Tho wealth of this country cannot
be justly measured by its population.
The improvements in machinery, es?
pecially as applied to agriculture,
almost dispenses with the human
hands, and the sweat of the brow.
They plough, sow and reap with ma?
chines, and man's only occupation is
to superintend them. Hence, you
ride over a country dotted with farms,
in a high state of culture and groan?
ing under crops, and are surprised at
the lack of laborers, and wonder who
does all this work. Capital and sci?
ence have supplied the places of our
large gangs of negroes, and the work
goes on as if by magic. Thus, Penn?
sylvania, with her 3,000,000 of popu?
lation, eujovs productions equal to
the labor of 6,000,000. The same
process would make the South a gar?
den of fruitfulness, the abode of a
great population, and the seat of
power. Let us take lessons from our
neighbors, and find compensation for
the sudden destruction of our vast
There is the whole secret. The
words, "dotted with farms in a high
state of culture," explain one means
of the wealth of the Pennsylvania
farmers, while they become inde?
pendent of large gang* of laborers
by the uso of machinery and im?
proved implements of culture. Let
our Southern planters take these mat?
ters into consideration, and profit by
the lessons they convey.
A SOUTHERN CONVENTION.-The
Memphis Appeal proposes a conven?
tion of the people of thc South, by
daly elected delegates, to meet at
some central point, and qualified by
an immediate commission from the
people to express their sentiments
tv ul vindicate their policy and pur?
poses from the foul aspersions heaped
upon them by tho traveling adven?
turers hailing from this section, and
now on a pilgrimage through the
Northern States, awakening by theil
slanders and falsehood the mos!
intense animosity against ns
Ijook at. I lome.
The Northern and Western pupers
arc continually filled with sensation ?il
telegrams from the South, aud m?re j
especially has this been the case since :
the present election canvass com?
menced. To such un extent has this ;
reached, that we notice in oue of our .
exchanges that one of the Generals ;
at tho South sends a despatch to
General Howard that a large number
of these telegrams are manufactured.
The New York Journal of Commerce j
calls attention to this growing evil of j
false special despatches. The Louis- j
ville papers expose a large number of j
them, and yet, day after day, a large
number of Northern papers are filled
to overflowing with the same lying
bulletins. A long and sensational
account of a murder in Mississippi
oi- Alabama is read with avidity and
accepted as proof of the utter de?
moralization of the entire State in
which it is said to have occurred.
But there are some reliable and j
conservative journals who expose !
this wholesale maligning of the South.
Of these, the Journal of Commerce is
one. It says that after a careful sift?
ing of the truth from the falsehood.* |
now ou?rent, it is led to the conclu- j
sion that the average of moral good
ness and peaceable living is not j
higher in the North than it is in the j
South, and adds, that if it was to
judge from specific cases, it would
be compelled to give judgment
against the North in the comparison,
and alleges that the issues of the
press from all parts of the North are
filled with accounts of riots, arson
and murder, and every crime known
to the laws.
The Journal cites the following
"The truth is, there is ample work
at home for those who devoto their
energies to improving the moral con?
dition of their fellow-men, wherever
home may happen to be. We were
riding in a railway car, in the Con?
necticut Valley, from Springfield,
Northward, on the -ith of July last,
and had an opportunity of seeing
soree of the young men of that part
of the world, for they crowded the
train in the evening, on their way
home from celebrations at various
places. We have not, for years,
heard such an out burst of profanity
and indecency, as made the car in
which we rode hideous for an hour,
.between Bellow-? Falls and the sta?
tions North of it. About fifty young |
men were in the car, mostly half
drunk, and notwithstanding the pre?
sence of several ladies, the boisterous
language and conduct of these young
men indicated the most thorough de?
basement of character. Certainly
there is ample room for the labors of
good men among this class in the
Connecticut Valley. But it is not to
be imagined that the beautiful valley
of the Connecticut is any worse in
this regard than any other parts of
the country. We have stated the
fact only to show that it is desirable
for all parts of the country to 'look
at home.' "
When we read of such murders as
those half-dozen which were com?
mitted in and near the city of bro?
therly love; the riots at Indianapolis;
the continual denunciations and blas?
phemies of radical orators; the hun?
dreds of thousands of dollars abstract?
ed or stolen by so-called defaulters,
we think the advice in the closing
sentence in the above extract very ap?
propriate to the revilers of the South
-"look at home."
FIRE IN CHARLESTON. - A fire oc?
curred in Charleston, on Tuesday
morning, in the building occupied by j
Messrs. McKay and Campbell, ou j
Hasell street, as an auction sales- |
rodna. The flames were prevented
from spreading, by the exertions of
the firemen. The Pavilion Hotel
was in danger for some time, but es?
caped. The building, it is thought, I
was set on fire. The loss to Messrs. |
McKay & Campbell was about $9,000; j
?5,000 insured. It belonged to Mr. i
Bisseil, and was insured for $5,000. j
One of the last official acts of Sec- !
retary Harlan, performed the day j
before his resignation took effect, was j
to execute a contract by which the I
reserve lands of the Cherokee In?
dians, in Kansas, consisting of 800,- '
000 acres, ceded by the Indians to
the Government, were sold to the
Connecticut Emigrant Society, for
Si per acre.
The stockholders of the several I
railroads extending from Nashville to '
Decatur, Ala., met at Nashville on
Tuesday, and agreed upon a consoli?
dation, under the name of tho Nash?
ville and Decatur Railroad. They
intend to extend the line to Mont?
The Huntsville Independent says
that around the suburbs of Hunts?
ville alone, are a hundred women and
children, with no other shelter than
the canopy of h paver.
? Like o. Sf onr.lvall.*'
This sentence, politically ?peaking,
can be applied to Andrew Johnson,
with great propriety, at this time.
Undismayed by those indications of
radical strength which have already
disintegrated the loosely-built and
unreliable conservative party of the
North, and which have frightened
the New York Herold, Times and
Post from his support, the Richmond
limes says that he stands faithful
among the faithless, as .firm and im?
movable as the rock of Gibralbir.
The unfounded rumor, which we
noticed a few days ago, that the re?
sult of the elections in Maine and
Vermont had induced him to aban?
don his policy, the Times says he has
given an "emphatic denial." fie
also authorizes ihe statement that he
has in no way modified his policy, or
signified his approval of the "con?
stitutional amendment" adopted late?
ly by Congress. He holds that amend?
ment to be grossly violative of the
fifth article of the Constitution,
which says that "no State shall be
deprived, without its consent, of its
equal suffrage in the Senate;" and,
as eleven States were vainly asking
for admission, at the time tho amend?
ment was passed, the President con?
tends the whole proceeding was in?
Therei can scarcely bc any retro?
grade movement--any step back?
ward-taken by tho President, no
matter if the party opposed to him,
through thc coming elections, should
retain or increase their present power.
He cannot, with any consistency,
abandon the constitutional ground
he so boldly occupies at present.
There is no inducement for him to do
so, and we believe that he is honest
and sincere in his convictions of duty,
and that he lias the firmness, man?
hood and fidelity to maintain them at
Who Ix Ile!
The Washington correspondent of
the Baltimore American-a radical
journal, by the way--writes the fol?
lowing to that paper:
"A gentleman from South Carolina,
au original secessionist, who served
the so-called Confederate Govern?
ment with distinguished ability, ar?
rived in this city, yesterday, on his
way home, having spent some weeks
in traveling throughout the Northern
I and Western States. He says he tra?
veled with the object in view of as?
certaining for himself the love and
temper of the Northern people as re?
gards the South, and with special
reference to the prospect of Mr. John?
son's policy being endorsed ly the
people. Prom what he has seen and
heard, he believes the people, every?
where, will repudiate Mr. Johnson's
policy at the polls, and he is now con?
vinced the best policy for the South
is to at once adopt the proposed
amendment to the Constitution, as
being the best terms they are likely
to have offered them. He leaves for
home the present week, and intends
to urge upon his people the necessity
of immediate action upon thia vital
We can scarcely believe a word ai
this charge against a South Carolina
gentleman If it be so, we think this
gentleman is utterly ignorant of the
political tone and sentiment of his
fellow-citizens in this State. We do
nor believe that the people of South
Carolina, even for the boou (?) ol
having their few representatives ad?
mitted to Congress, will ever agree to
swallow this last radical pill. We
would like to hear his reasons foi
urging upon "his people" to stultify
themselves by further concessions to
Tiley Won't Admit Vs.
We recently reproduced a para?
graph from the New York Indepen?
den!, declaring that the radicals would
not admit our representatives inte
Congress, even if we were to ratify th?
constitutional amendment. That pa?
per repeats its assertion in more em?
phatic language. Hear it:
"We know personally every promi?
nent member of Congress, and wt
know that the leaders do not mean tc
admit the unadmitted States on the
mero adoption of the amendment.
Moreover, we know personally the
leading radicals of the Republican
party outside of Congress, and wt
know that they have no intention ol
making the amendment thermal mea
sure of admission. To say, therefore,
as the national committee say, thal

Tile usually \vell-lbformed corres?
pondent of the Baltimore Sun tele?
graphs to that paper:
All statements to the effect that the
President has announced his deter
minatiou to recommend the adoption
of the m endments to the Constitu?
tion proposed by Congress are utterly
unfounded. He has not said to any
one ho was iu favor of those amend?
ments. It is true, nevertheless, that
the President has had under consi?
deration some of tho political points
to be embraced in his next annual
message to Congress, and some of
these points have been submitted to
his Cabinet. There is good reason
for saying that Mr. Johnson will ad?
here strictly to the policy that has
characterized his administration.
Among other things, he will urge
that while the Constitution leaves it
an open question for tho courts whe?
ther ordinary legislation is or is not
binding while States are refused rep?
resentation, that instrument. is dis?
tinct and emphatic in its requirement
that in the preparation of amend?
ments to the Constitution, all the
States that claim and are willing;:?
exercise the right shall be repre?
The President will insist on thc
immediate admission of loyal and
legally qualified representatives from
all the non-represented States, in
order that Congress may be enabled
to prepare such amendments as the
condition of the country demand. He
will likewise recommend that when
Congress is in accordance with this
view of the requirements of the Con?
stitution, amendments may be pre?
pared adapting the questions of rep?
resentation and taxation to meet the
changed condition of the country. It
is also understood that the President
will embody in his message, as a sug?
gestion to Congress, the two proposi?
tions for amendment submitted last
winter in the reported conversation
with Senator Dixon. A corrected
and revised copy of the propositions
for amendment is herewith sent as
"Representatives shall be appor?
tioned among the several States which
may be included within this Union
according to the number of qualified
malo voters, as prescribed by each
State. Direct taxes shall be appor?
tioned among the several States
which may 1?; included within this
Union according to the value of all
property subject to taxation in each
State. This amendment not to take
effect until the census of 1870 shall
have been taken."
liiiymnnd's Tergiversation** *
The New York SH? is a prophet.
Sonni days since, it uttered the fol?
lowing prediction concerning H. J.
Raymond's political course:
"Mr. Raymond, who is the present
Representative for the Sixth District,
is in doubt about what he had better
clo. If the prospects of the conserv?
ative party were good in tho country
generally, he would undoubtedly bc,
the anti-radical candidate for re-elec?
tion in his district; but-he has lately
beeu admonished, through his paper,
that 'something must be done,' and
his present programme is to get back
into his old party with all possible
"The arrangement which he and
his friends have completed for effect?
ing the transaction is this: He is to
immediately bring his paper around
into the radical ranks, in considera?
tion of which the radicals are to give
him the nomination for Congress in
the Sixth District. That nomination
is then to be declined, after which
the Times is to go in strongly for the
Fenton State ticket, and the transac?
tion of Mr. Raymond will then have
These predictions have been veri?
fied-his paper has gone over, he has
declined to run for Congress, and tho
third feature of the programme will
doubtless be carried ont. And all
this from the long-winded mouth?
piece of the Philadelphia Conserva?
tive Convention! Is there any hones?
ty in New York politicians?
THOSE OHIO RIVER "GUERILLAS."
Considerable sensation was produced,
a few days since, by the report, which
first originated in the Cincinnati pa?
pers, that a United States mail agent
was captured near Warsaw, on tho
Ohio River, by a band of rebel gue?
rillas. Although we thought the
"tory quite improbable at the time,
we published it as we found it in the
Louisville Courier. It now turns out
that the mail ajent, whose name is
Dr. Farris, hail been indicted for
mnrder in the C'>cuit Court of Galla
tin County, Ky., .md that the partj
of men who captured him was the
Sheriff of that County and big posse
com?alus. So much for the band of
rebel guerillas, and their murderous
designs on the Doctor.
THE CASE OE MR. DAVIS.-The Na?
tional Intelligencer, of Saturday, in an
article on this subject, says:
"In conclusion, we suppose every
one will concede that the President
cannot leave Washington, and go to
Richmond to try Mr. Davis. And,
as the Chief Justice does not feel at
liberty t' * * so, we imagine these
humane auals who aro clamor?
ing for ..i sad of Jeff. Davis will
have to e" oe still further patience
on the Sui
Cotton-NeVr nngland Pollry.
We extract tho following interesting n?|
marks from tho Now Orleans Picayune:
Affairs in thin conn try promise an addi?
tion to the memorable "paradoxes of histo?
ry. A political struggle and a civil war.
which were generally expected to effect a '
radical change in thu social order of n earl v
half the States, have only revealed the im?
mutable nature of the principles in which
that order was founded; while, on the other
hand, among their most visible results, are
industrial and commercial changes which
the advocates and prophets of social revo?
lution confidently predicted would not oc?
cur. Nono of tho New England political
philosophers and social regenerators de?
sired to destroy Southern cotton produc?
tion, wliile laboring to overthrow thc
Southern system of labor. They fondly
conceived that they could annihilate a po- ?
Utica] power which they hated, and derive
increased protits from agricultural pro- ;
ducts which they loved. But if misfortunes
seldom come singly, blessings, the most
tenaciously combined in hope, are seldom 1
associated in fruition. Every day dimit?
shes the prospect of a magnificent New
England cotton plantation in the fertile !
expanse of Southern Territory. The more
the South perishes politically, the more
dim becomes the New England vision ol
vast material advantages from it? ruined
and insolvent estates.
New England policy threatens, in short,
to gradually extinguish the foreign branch
of tlio American cotton trade, and to pro- j
duce ultimately an almost complete intro- j
version of its domestic branch. Letters |
from the Barings, in England, to commcr- !
cial men in this State, say that receipts of ;
American cotton iii Europe are now count- I
ed on to so inconsiderable an extent, that
tho fluctuations in the prospect of the I
Southern cotton crop nave scarcely an ap- |
preciable effect in the English "market.
The war,with its blockade of S uiotiorn
porte, having stimulated cotton production j
in ludia, Egypt and Brazil, in vastly aug
mented proportions, political and indus- j
trial conditions, since the war, combine to
maintain and perpetuate this increased
production in those countries. They, m
ueed,|may be said to suffice to supply Eng?
Liverpool, in respect to cotton, is tut ;
longer dependent on New- Orleans. Eng
land is released from the anxious and
trembling homage which she oui* paid to
the American Cotton King. She is begin?
ning, on the contrary, to command, in
place of tho United States, the great
sources of the world's cotton supply; and
it is not improbable that she will in no
long time wield the sceptre of this now
empire even over the cotton lactory oli?
garchs of New England.
lt is certain, at all events, that the spe?
edie tax on Southern cotton, and the spe?
edie bounty on American cotton manufac?
tures in the way of drawback on their
export, together with new conditions and
tendencies of industry and commerce in
the Sooth, are now pointing not only to the
failure of New England expectations of a
large and increasing supply of Southern
cotton tor Northern consumption, but lo
the transfer OH a large scale of capital and j
labor in the South to Southern cotton
manufacture. A movement in this direc?
tion, once begun, is not likely to come to a
voluntary pause. Judging by examples
elsewhere, it is destined to be constantly
accelerated. The causes which induced its
beginning are of a character that bids us
to expect that they will operate with in?
creased force hereafter. If thia .move?
ment, then, is to go on without abatement,
and with augmented elements of progress,
it cannot be questioned that at last the
Southern consumption will absorb the
Southern production of cotton. It is also
to be supposed, in such an event, that the
Southern demand for cotton goods would
be supplied by Southern cotton factories.
Thus New England has before her, as thc
requital of her remarkable philanthropy
and far-reaching sagacity, the loss of the
magnificent plantation, aj?d the equally
magnificent market, winch filled her
dreams of benevolence and monopoly.
These anticipations are based on no
arbitrary assumptions. They are not to
be. tdaased with vague or fanciful specula?
tions. Facts art! constantly multiplying to
give t beni a solid basia of reason* and pro?
bability. Several cotton factories are pro?
jected within two or three hundred miles
of this city, in the State of Mississippi.
Similar projects are on foot in Alabama
and Georgia, and attention is seriously
directed to such enterprises in Northern
Louisiana. In tho meantime, cotton fac?
tories that already existed in the South sro
preparing to operate on an enlarged basis
of capital and labor with renewed energy.
It is needless to ask whence, tho labor for
these establishments is to come. Their
existence, according to economical logi?,
will have to be taken as proof that tho
necessary labor is present, or, if not in?
stantly present, available from other
In the situation contemplated, ti., rj
would be a strange translation into retribu?
tive fact of the old prophecy, that New
England was to be "left out in the cold,"
politically, as a national nuisance. She
would become the victim of a terrible com?
mercial frost for having been too intimate?
ly and influentially concerned in the poli?
tical destinies of the country.
A GERMAN PRESS ON THK SOI-TH. -
The Westliche Post, a German paper
published at St. Louis, is convinced
"that the former rebel States, in ease
of a radical victory at the next elec?
tions, will submit for good to the
Congressional policy, and try by their
good behavior to deserve again the
rights of representation in Congress.
They will see that the Northern De?
mocrats are only their false friends,
and act accordingly. " If the West?
liche Post finds some comfort in the
evangelical hope that tho South in
future will love her worst enemies,
and bless those who have cursed
them, we do not object. Better to?
day than to-morrow, if, after all, tho
millenium is to come.

Nr.w ENGLAND MONEY.-There is
unquestionable authority for stating
that the New England manufacturers
and bondholders have recently con?
tributed a very large sum of money
for carrying the Indiana election.
This tliey can very well afford to do.
If they can prevent their bonds from
being taxed, and keep up the present
high tariff, by which a single manu?
facturing firm makes a profit of $16,
i a day, they can very well afford
to pay large sums to carry Indiana
for the radical ticket. But. wdiat say
the people of this State to the ar?
rangements? Are they willing to be
made hewers of wood and drawers of
water to the New England moneyed
aristocracy- their manufacturers and
bondholders?-iV. A. Ledger.
GENERAL SICKLES.-The President
has appointed Gen. Sickles Colonel
of the Forty-Second Regiment of
United States Infantry, one o? the
new regiments created by the army
bill, recently ?passed by Congress.
This is intended as an official recog?
nition of Gen. Sickles' services to his
