Tile- Labor Quest iou.
A Louisiana cotemporary, the Iber
ville Sontli, says that the foreigners,
the coolies and the freedmen are all
"v'ery well in their way, but that nei?
ther tho one nor the other, nor all
of them, will supply thc great void of
labor, while we ourselves continue to
talk, grumble, loaf and brag about
what wc used to be.
The stubborn truth of tho matter
is this, that Southern men and wo?
men and their children, have to go
to work, if they may reasonably ex?
pect to repair their shuttered fortunes,
or to t:.avc their section from the fate
of Jamaica or Hayti. The age of
idleness is past. Wo must all work,
or all sink. Wc havehio longer "fa?
ther's plantation and nigger-s to fall
back upon." Thc farmer is .well-nigh
worthless, and tho "niggers" ave
free; there is nothing left for us but
brains and hands, and there is plenty
of work for both.
Is not thc truth of this self-evident
to every thinking mind? Thc scanty,
half performed work of thc few freed?
men who evince a desire to work,
should be supplied by the young men
of the other race, who know tho value
of industry and labor in the great
work of recuperation. Thc freed
negro knows little about this, and
cares less; his highest ambition, in
his new condition, being to do as lit?
tle as he can, and get enough to eat
and something to oover him. And
this is more natural, and should be
considered more excusable than many
of us aro ready to concede. The
transition from slavery and compul?
sory labor, bo that labor never so
light, was too sudden, not to have
just such an effect upon an ignorant
and uneducated class, who knew
comparatively littlo of thc value oi
labor and industry to tho welfare oi
society, or the prosperity of a coun?
try. They performed this task, were
led and clad, and enjoyed themselves
beyond this they never thought oi
All this has passed away, and tin
negro is no longer compulsorily
under our control. The services o
the race, cither in the field, or m do?
mestic service, are comparatively
worthless. This state of affairs hap
pens when wo require ineroaset
labor--when our fields and home.'
laid desolate, require the larges
amount of manual labor and untiring
industry. There is nothing left ti
us, but to go to work ourselvc .; nix
when wo say work, we mean work
not in the learned professions, no
behind the counter, not speculatinj
in politics-tho course of tho radical:
or the policy of tho President. Ii
days gone by, we had no objection b
college education, or to the numeren
* candidates for learned professions
but it did strike us with surpriso t
see, tho other day, snell a long list o
admissions to the bar, granted b;
our Court of Appeals. It may be al
right-the prospect is that the prac
tico of the law will be lucrative fo
some years to come; but wo canno
avoid thinking, that the plainer o
more practical paths of industry
would bo more conducive to tho rc
euperation of tho South, and th
retrieval of our past prosperity.
Brains and hands ! The forme
qualification is very good for politio
the pulpit, bar, or medical profession
but these are pretty well filled forth
present, and will answer our pur
poses for some years to come. Lei
then, tho hands of our grown-vi
young men go to Hie mor^ pracii"!
duties of industry-tho mechanic:
and machine shops, the plough-an
branch of industry that will conti
bute to real, material wealth, and i
the development of our resource
The learned profession's mat/ be li
erativc and yield a living; but the
income is simply tho chango .of m
ney from ono individual to tho otho
It is productive labor wo need nov
and we sincerely hope that the su
ply will bc equal to thc demand.

A despatch from Little Hock so
a resolution has been introduced
tho Arkansas Legislature, calling i
information as to an attempt to ov<
throw the present Stato Governmei
Return Stolen Property.
Tlio New York Journal if Com?
merce, ono of thc most influential und
respectable sheets published iu that
city, is calling upon persons who have
in their parlors, churches, Ac, arti?
cles that were stolen from the people
of the South during the war, to send
them back. If says:
"Au old friend of ours, a Union
man in the .South through all tho
war, told us that his chandeliers wore
in a certain house in Massachusetts;
his piano in another, und various fa?
mily treasures in others. Ho had
traced then! to their position's. We
have heard of a Southern lady sitting
down at a Northern table and recog?
nizing silver on, the bible as her own.
Wc havo heard eil .a lady receiving
from an officer a present of jewelry,
which she recognized as the jewelry
of a Southern lady who had been her
old .schoolmate..and friend. Public
sentiment seems to be aroused to this
subject, and thc holders oTsuch goods
should be compelled, by the indigna?
tion of their honest fellow-citizens,
to 'scud them back.' "
There are signs, from a few in?
stances, which -wc have placed upon
record, that there aro glimmerings of
u returning sense of honesty among
some of thc Northern people; but a
vast amount of plato and other pro?
perty will never be returned.
THAT METEORIC SHOWER.-It muy
interest those who are unwilling to
wait thirty-three yen rs to see a shower
of meteors, to know that Olbers, the
astronomer, supposes tho real period
of their return tobe thirty-four years,
and that the display of 178'.). repeated
in 1830, will appear in 18(57.
