Wednesday Morning, April IO, 1867.
Tho South is heartily tired of poli?
tical agitation; ifc Las nearly been tho
death of her anti her best interests.
It is, therefore, with regret that wo
seo, .in some of out- exchangee, a lin?
gering disposition still to discuss po?
litics, anti argue tho right und
wrong ot the military bill. Tho
Biclunond Enquirer recently put
sundry questions to tho Now York
Times, among which was ono to tho
effoe^ tjiat if tho Southern people
havo taken nil oath to support the
Constitution, how can they becomo a
party to* tho lato legislation of Con ?
Tho Times, wo think, vory properly
responds iu substance, that it cannot
soo that the Southern States "become
a party" to tho legislation of Con?
gress, by accepting it as liflv, and
obeying its requirements.. .Cbngress
has passed a law providing for elec?
tions, conventions and other steps in
the re-organization of Governments
inj tl io Southern' States. That law
may or may not bo constitutional, but
tho Southern people arc not respon?
sible for it. They wero not parties
to it iu any sense; thoy did not voto
for it; its validity docs not depend on
their accepting or assenting to it.
Tt will go iuto effect, and tho South?
ern States Governments be organized
nuder its provisions, whether they
accept or reject it. They must take
tho law as they find'it-as it is made
for them by those who, for tho time,
havo tho power to mnko it.
Tlieso views of tho Now York pa
j per aro ours, simply because they are
facts as they exist. It is nonsense to
talk of acceptance or rejecti ?1 of n
late which has been passed by tho
law-making power; and if tho En?
quirer and other Southern papers
were to argue its fitness or constitu?
tionality from now until dooms-day,
it would not lessen its foreo or modi?
fy its requisitions.
But tho great ovil to bo apprehend?
ed from this useless discussion is,
that it keeps alive political and sec?
tional ngitation, and that agitation
paralyzes business. When Congress
adjourned, after having completed it?
measures for re-organizing State Go?
vernments in tho South, it was hoped
that agitation would cease. It was
and is believed that no quorum of
Congress will meet iu July, ns pro?
vided for iu' tho resolutions of ad?
journment, but that tho recess will
continuo until December; thus giving
niuo months of political qnict, and
an opportunity for the Southern
States to re-organizo and bo prepared
to submit their State Constitutions to
that body on its re-assembling. Tho
indications from Virginia and Mary?
land aro that Northern capitalists aro
ready to invest their capital in South?
ern lands and Southern enterprises,
provided they cnn believo tho politi?
cal questions of the day settled, ac?
cording to tho legislation of Congress.
Tho whole country needs tho re?
poso of ro-harmouized notion in the
councils o? the nation. Tho finan?
cial condition of tho North, as well ns
tho depression throughout the South
-tho latter depending mainly on tho
healthfulness of tho former-de
mauds that political agitation should
cease. In the South, its continuance
would not only be. profitless, but
ruinous; while, at the North, it would
continue to clog tho wheels of trade
and commerce, and continuo to keep
capital locked up which should bc:
flowing in every channel of ontor
prise.tending to develop tho resources
of the country. Our trim course,
then, is to push forward the work ol
reconstruction, and not indulgo in
vain lamentations over tho past, 01
useless railings at tho present situa?
tion. Empty discussions of political
theories nt this time ean aid us in lie
way whatsoever -neither in bettering
our condition politically, or in tilt
recuperation of our resources anti
energies. We beliovo that the good
sonso of tho mass of the Southern
pcoplo has brought them to the same
lUr?.Ti HUN.-Gen. Joseph E. John
ston, in a lato letter upon the subjec
of tho first battlo of Bull linn, say
tho victory kthero was regarded bi
tho Confederate troops as having de
(tided tho question of Southern indo
pendenco, and ended the war, one
thousands of them left tho army an<
went homo. Tho Union army, h<
says, was less disorganized by tiefen
Cotton va. Corn.
STONY POINT, April 8, 1867.
MESSUM. Eprroiis: It is from no
fondness ior controversy, nor from a
desire to appear in print, nor yet
from a determination to play .'last
tog" with you, that I respectfully ask
for another showing in your columns.
I bolievo tho end aiined at by both of
us is tho samo; but wo proposo to uso
different means. Suroly, nothing
~would contribute more to tho happi?
ness of her citizous than for the
South to becomo, in every respect,
self-sustaining. I would rejoice to
seo her commonco ploughing every
sea, to hear hor spindles twirling in
every County, District or Parish,
and, most of all, to know that her
agriculture was tho most improved
in Christendom. But is all this pos?
sible? Can suoh an instance bo
found in the history of nations, that
any ono pooplo was pre-eminent in
tho three great proofs of civilization?
Tho old saw, that ho who is jack of
all trades is master of none, is as ap?
plicable to nations as to individuals.
If tho South attempts to build her
own ships, weavo her own fabrics and
grow her own staples, she will most
assuredly fail. And yet this is tho
sum and substauco of your advice, I
infer, from your repeated publications
on this subject.
Wo aro a bankrupt people, and,
beforo wo becomo resuscitated, we
must redevelop our resources, by
digging them from tho soil. Wo
havo no commerce, and no money
with which to build up manufactures,
and our only source of income must
bo tho cultivation of crops; and hero
is tho point. We must grow thoso
crops that will net us the most money
when thrown into market. Of this
crop, each planter must judgo for
himself. A neighbor of mino plants
largely of corn, and pays but little
attention to cotton, because his rich,
alluvial lands produce abundantly in
grain of all kinds, but they inva?
riably rust cotton. It would bo as
suicidal for him to plant a largo cot?
ton crop as it would bo for the Rich?
land planter to depend upon tho un
manured sand-hills of your District
for a corn harvest. Extremes aro us
destructive to agriculture as they aro
to any other department of life. Tho
avarice of that planter who buys his
flour, corn, bacon and molasses, (for
such a planter is sure to stint him?
self and family,) and grows only cot?
ton, that ho may stuff his coffers, is
about as commendable as tho folly of
that other extremist, who refuses to
plant cotton for fear ho may have to
buy something from the Yankees.
If there are two ideas in practical
economy that it becomes our planters
to iuculcate upon themselves now, if
over, they aro these: 1. Plant every?
thing you can for market, and, when
harvested, sell it to whomever will
pay you most for it. 2. Buy as littlo
of everything as possible, and buy
from him who will sell you cheapest.
The destitution of our country, and
moro particularly of our State, is
great; but what would it have been
had tho planters, last year, grown no
cotton? Tho universal and almost
unprecedented drought totally de?
stroyed tho corn crops, and, but for
tho littlo cotton grown, thousands
more of our citizens would now bo on
tho charity list. If tho State raised
100,000 bales of cotton in 1866, it has
boen tho means of supplying her citi?
zens with $10,000,000-an amount
that, if properly expended, would
this spring have imported into the
State half as many bushels of corn
as is grown in tho Stato in a success?
ful year. I am convinced wo devoto
far too largo an area to tho culturo of
corn, and it is an "old habit and a
prejudice" which a few more scorch?
ing sommers will assuredly "shako
off." We speak of eorn-Indian
maize-as tho staff of life. What a
delusion! Nine-tonths of Christen?
dom never saw a corn stalk, nor au
ear of corn. In bye-gono days,? tho
greasy ?moke-houso and well-filled
crib were indicative of the quantity
of labor dono on tho plantation, be
canse the laborer, destitute of care
and almost of thought, fattened like
i a pig when rationed heavily from
each. Such consumers were a heavy
tax upon tho commissariat of tho
' plantation ; but they have diminished,
and will continue to decreaso porcep
i tibly, though thc labor of tho country
should continuo abundant. Hand
. and head, both workiug to accom?
plish tho samo end, will effect more
1 and consumo less than whon manual
? labor alone is employed.
There aro several points, Messrs.
i Editor?, in your "leader," of tho f>th
instant, which almost provoko a reply >
1 but I must forbear, for fear of bo
f coming tiresome. Very respectfully,
si J). WYATT AIKEN.
I PonaoT How TO Cnow.-Tho rea?
son why tho Southern papers do not
1 mako so much "jubilation" over the
Connecticut election, as some of their
conservative contemporaries in thc
- North do, tho Richmond WhltJ says,
t is "because they have forgotten how
?i to crow over election results."

- tion, 1,500 strong, proposes to go to
I Fort Lamed, on tho Santa Po road,
I where ho will invite all tho chiefs of
i hostile tribes to connell, and discuss
t terms of peace. If they fail to agree,
- ho will immediately enter upon a
TI\o Conference Mctwcen the Mlllt*ry |

The Charleston Courier speaks os j
follows of this meeting:
In compliance with his request,
Major-General Sickles, commanding]
this military district, was met yester?
day by Governors Worth, of North
Carolina, and Orr, of this State, for
tho purpose of having a freo confer?
ence upon tho preliminary details of j
re-organization under tho reconstruc?
tion bills. Tho interview was, wo
understand, mutually agreeable and
satisfactory. Amongst tho results
attained, wo may mention tho follow?
Tho details of registration will bo
immediately prepared by direction of
Gen. Sickles, and put into operation
as soon os persons can bo found to
act in tho capacity of registers who
aro qualified under the provisions of
tho supplemental bill to do so.
No elections for municipal or State
officers will be held in cithor of the
States until tho Conventions which
are to bo called shall havo mot and
adopted new Constitutions. No civil
officer will be removed who faithfully
discharges his duties.
Whenever vncaucies occur by rea?
son of the expiration of tho tenuro of
offioo, by death, resignation or other?
wise, they will bo filled by appoint?
ments, to bo made by the Governors
of these States, if tho officers aro of I
tho character elected by tho General
Assemblies, unless special reasons to
the contrary should arise, or by the
Commanding Genernl, if they aro of
tho class elected by populor suffrage.
Tho News says:
Our distinguished guests, Gover?
nors Orr, of South Carnlina, aud
Worth, of North Carolina, have left j
us. Gen. Sickles, wo leam, gavo a
select dinner party, yesterday even?
ing, at his residence, ex-Governor
Magrath and Chief Justice Dunkin
being of tho party. Later in tho I
ovening, tho officers of the staff aud
others stationed in tho city paid their |
respects to tho two Governors.
Governor Worth left last night by
tho North-Eastern train, escorted to |
tho dopot by soveral members of Gen.
Sickles' stall'. Ho was much pleased
with what ho heard and saw in our
