Southern Agriculture-Our Laboring
It is generally estimated, and we
suppose the estimate is nearly cor?
rect, that the cotton crop now coming
to market, trill reach in the neigh?
borhood of 2,000,000 bales. Tho
New York Tribune, taking the esti
mato as nearly true, in an article
undor tho head of "Prospects of tho
South," intimates that, although be?
low tho extravagant estimoto at the
beginning of the Beasou, it shows the
falsity of all tho charges of indolence
and lassitude so freely lavished upon
the people of the South. But it
shows more--that the fear of any
permanent demoralization of tho
laboring class, consequent upon the
sudden chango in their social and po?
litical condition, was not well found?
ed. And sucb are the facts, os, at
this time, they present themselves.
The novelty Of the chango in tho
condition and position of the lato
8lavos-having been almost instanta?
neously released from the disciplino
and restraints which wore necessary
adjuncts to tho system-it might
bavo boen well expected that their
industry, for some time, would have
been unsteady, and their energies re?
laxed; but two years' experience,
combined witb their late elevatiou to
? political equality with .the whites,
will mako our laboring population
stable and reliable. Besides, tho
stimulus of necessity, in the present
impoverished condition of the South,
bas been felt by them, as well as by
the whites, and both aro fully con?
vinced that unless they work, they
must want; that the Country's pros?
perity depends on tho untiring in?
dustry of the producers.
In this view, tho abolition of slave?
ry bas made, or must moke, all
classes in the South producers in one
or other of tho departments of in?
mechanics, or in business pursuits.
There will, nud must be, of necessity,
fewer drones on society, and much
fewer who eau live on tho labor of
others without rendering a fair equi?
valent. Tho production of 2,000,000
bales of cotton, under all the unto?
ward circum8tauccs and severe trials
with which the agriculturist alone
bad to contend with, is incontestable
evidence that our people aro learning
that lesson. Under more fnvorablo
auspices-with good seasons and the
comparatively stable condition to
which our hibor lins now arrived-the
agricultural production of the South
for tho past season would have boen
much larger, especially in the cotton
crop, which, with those advantages,
would undoubtedly have reached
nearly -4,000,000 bales.
With these facts before us, and
with tho evidences of increasing in?
dustry and renewed onergy all nround
us, "the situation" warrants the hopo
that, with ordinarily good seasons,
the planters and farmers of the Soutlr
ern States will do well tho coming
season. Industry and economy, the
introduction of improved agricul?
tural implomenta, the application of
fertilizers, and the utilizing of the
labor they have, which they must
have learned from tho experience of
tho past two years, will place them in
a better condition, and leave them in
a better plight, than they have been
siuco the beginning of tho lute war.
And to this pleasant result, the ex?
clusion of political agitation, for
which wo have no uso, and which
must bo rigidly ignored, will contri?
bute iu no small degree.
THE SOUTHEEN PUESS.-The mem?
bers of the city press of Atlanta held

PAYING STATE TAXES.-Gov. Orr,
in response to some inquiries ad?
dressed to him by Mnjor Mittag, of
Lancaster, from which wo make the
following extracts, which may be of
interest to somo of our renders:
Tho tax collector of your District
is not required by tho laws of this
State to take tho test oath, nu d' the
Government of the State, uuder tho
Sherman military bill, is recognized
with all of its laws and officers, until
the mil i tiny commander chooses to
abrogate or remove them.
This not having boen done, Mr.
Yanlandigham will, therefore, pro?
ceed to collect tho taxes which are
necessary to carry on tho "provi?
sional Government" so recognized,
and yon will please communicate to
him these views.
You inquire if a State law requir?
ing those who have hired freedmen
to pay their taxes is right. The
State law makes no such requirement
of the employer. Tho Tax Act of
December, 1806, requires every em?
ployer to return to the tax collector
the names of his employees, (and it
matters not whether they are white
or colored,) and such omployer may
pay the capitation tax of his em?
ployee. But tho law leaves it entirely
discretionary with him. See the
third section of tho Tax Act, ap?
proved December 21, 1866.,
GEN. GKANT.-Tho Augusta Chro~
nicle and Sentinel is out for Gen.
Grant for the next President. It
"The contest at the North in the
next Presidential campaign will bo

will be one of uuusual strife and bit?
terness. The South cannot, and
should not, take purt in it, os in?

Grant is endeared to them by all the

history of bloody campaigns. His
magnanimity at Lee's surrender

his intercourse with us, in the midst
of troubles and anxieties, and me?
naces and persecutions. Nor is his
love of constitutional liberty less
than his valor and magnanimity.

RUSSIAN TREATMENT OF THE POIVES.
Russia is greatly admired by some
people in tho United States, but this
admiration can scarcely be caused by
4he treatment of the Poles by their
Russian conquerors. A recent official
return states that, sinco 1863, no less
than 18,682 inhabitants of tho Polish
provinces of Russia, including 164
women, havo been banished to Sibe?
ria; 33,780 to tho steppes of the Ural;
and 12,556, including 218 women, to
tho interior of Russin. Besides these,
2,416 Poles have been sent to the
penal regiments, and 1,468 hanged
and shot for political offences.
A Radical State Convention was
held at Little Rock, Arkansas, on

a conciliatory policy towards rob?is
wero voted down. The committee

Colombia a Nar ?er y of Talent.
Tb the Editors of (he Phoenix:
I hold it an especial privilege of
Columbia that even amidst her abo
urination of desolation, the ashes
and ruins of her once fair edifices
and beautiful gardens, the wreck of
a glory as wido-braited as tho country
itself was wide, sho ha*, still some?
what of which to be justly proud-thc
genius and talents of her children
tho laurels which her children are
winning in the domain of art-and
which crown her with another, a
fresher, and moro lasting glory-one
destined in its nature not to puss so
lightly and irretrievably away.
This reflection is a propos of some
news that I have lately received and
that it affords me infinite pleasure to
communicate, through your columns,
to nil friends and lovers of music, in
Columbia-namely, that our young
friend, Mr. Charles Feiniuger, (after
ftu absence of more than six years,)
will, in company pf his sister, Miss
Gabrielle Feiniuger, on a journey
through tho South, arrive hero ut tho
end of this month.
None can have forgotten Mr. Fein?
iuger, or the brilliant mnuner in which
he acquitted himself, as Virtuoso on
tho violin, on more than ono occasiou
in this place some eight or niuo years
ago, or the promiso ho then gave of
highest attainment in his art. Loud
as were thc critics in his praise, it was
well merited, and thoy prophesied not
moro of his future than the event has
He . was formerly a pupil of the
distinguished Herr Professor August
Koepper, (of Columbia,) from whom
ho received tho thorough preparation
that afterwards led him forward upon
his career as ai-tislc. During several
years' residcuco and study at tho
world-renowned Conservatorium (Aca?
demy) of music at Leipzig, in Ger?
many, ho perfected himself as aiiiste,
botii in his manner of playing and
in tho department of classical musical
composition. Of his performance on
the violin it may bo said, not only
that it transcends every expectation
but that he is so thorough a master
of his instrument as to mako it ex?
press nud roproduce every and any
thought and feeliner-and that so
faithfully, RO complei'-ly, os to hold
his audience in rapt attention.
Miss Gabriello Foininger, a pupil
of our honoured and favorite *'Mock?
ing-bird of tho South," Madame
Dovilliers, nee Brennan, receivedfrom
her worthy instructress her first les?
sons in singing many years ago. Her
excellent teacher knew well how tc
hold fast and develop dud fix in bet
equally gifted pupil the first indica?
tions of the future artiste. Under
the later and nnintermitted guidance
of the best and most celebrated mas?
ters of the Italian School in Now
York, Miss Feininger has already at?
tained a high grade in the art ol
song. The pure and clear-ringing
tone of her voice, which she controh
with extraordinary skill, and the
ability with which she renders the
most difficulty passages, give hei
every claim to tho title of artiste.
Mr. Feininger and Miss Feiuingei
will, with the kind co-operation ol
Professor Joseph Hart Denck, whose
name already stands high in tho world
of art, afford to the lovers of music
satisfactory proofs of their superioi
gifts and attainments-and, as ha*
boon said already, at no distant date.
On tho occasion, then, of so great f
musical treat and ouo so near now, it is
needful but to hint that where sud.
acknowledged geniuses combino theil
powers, every demand will bo met
every expectation surpassed. None
it is to be hoped will neglect to onjoj
tho opportunity offered of listening
to theso clever artistes-their towns
man and townswoman. Let us, then
try to give them such a reception ant
support t\s their merit deserves.
It has proved a particular plensun
to mo to bo able to report the fore
going in regard of the talented bro
thor and sister Feiniuger-and so t(
prepare our Columbian public fo
their appearance, beforo it; and tb
more so, in that all of us read, somi
days ago, in tho Phoenix, an exceed
ingly nattering notice of tho per
formanco in New York of Miss Mc
Cullot??, of this town; which was fo
her, as for tho gifted Feiniugers, th
school whence she found the way int
tho realm of art. Columbia has
indeed, then, before all other placets
and with right, reason to bo protn
that such geniuses have gone fort:

COH'MUIA, April ll.

An intelligent London correspond
cut of tho New York Herald, wiitin
on the Gth of March, says:
I am inclined to think if we ge
thing.) settled iu America, and ai
range our differences with Englnn
before tho end of this year, that th
next European mania for speeulri
tion may turn toward tho Unite
States, very likely to tho purchas
of Southern lauds and grnud plan
of emigration. In another yea
something must be dono with th
vast accumulatiou of money now lyin
idlo here and on the continent. Th
United States is in high favor. If w
have no sorions mishap, this will k
crease. Tho lavish expenditures c
Americans in Paris and elsewhere
backed as it is in most cases by un
questioned and rapidly acquire
wealth, is making a serious impres
sion upon Europeans.
The following valuable informa?
tion (says the Atlanta Intelligencer)
we find in the monthly report of
tho Director of tho Bureau of Statis?
tics, Treasury Department of the
Government at Washington, bearing
date tho 15th ult. It embraces a
statement of the exports of domestic
produce from the United States to
foreign ports, fbr tho years 1860 to
1866, both inclusive, to wit: In 1860,
$373,189,284; in 1861, $228,699,486;
in 1862, 213,009,479; in 1863 ; 305,
884,998;in 1861, 320,035,197; in 1865,
323,743,187; in 1866, 550,684,277.
From tho foregoiug, it will bo seen
that during tho progress of tho lato
war, tho vulue of the exports from
the United States of domestic pro?
duce, to foreign ports, foll largely
short of the value exported in 1860.
This will not surpriso any one, aa tho
South contributed but little during
tho wnr, nnd that little, possibly,
only from Now Orleans and other
less important points, to the valao of
exports. But what may surprise
some, is tho fact that tho value of
exports of 1860, should so largely
exceed that of I860-thc former
beiugin excess of the latter $177,494,
993. Attribute this to what cause or
onuses wo may, thero is one thing
certain-it evidences a wonderful
increase in the value of domestic
produce exported from the United
States since the year 1860-a year of
peace, and when the South contri?
buted largely to swell tho value of
those exports, if she did not contri?
buto in cotton, rice, and sugar, tho
greater amount. In 1865, but very
little cotton or other productions
were grown in tho South, and but
little, consequently, of the crops of
that year could have been exported
in either chat or the following year,
1866. It is well known, too, that
disastrous fniluro attended i plant?
ing of cotton in 1866, and y ,u wo see
o?icially reported that tho exports ol
domestic produce for tho latter ex?
ceeds that of 1861, by tho euormous
amount above stated; lu this we set
a vast increafio of the agricultural
productions of tho United States
nay, a most wonderful one; one that
evidences uu industry and prosperity
iu tho West and great North-west
that bids fair to ronder it, if it be not
so now, the 'greatest agricultural
country iu tho world. When tc
this shall be added the agricultural
productions of a reconstructed South,
who can doubt the ability of thc
Government to pay its debts? If,
comparing 1860 and 1866, the valut
of exports from the United State?
of domestic produce has increased
so vastly, what may it not swell tc
iu the future, when to tho industry
and enterprise of the people of th?
South, there shall be no drawback,
but every encouragement given'
This is food for reflection, and th?
statesmen of the American Republit
should give to it their earliest, mos
profound, and patriotic attention.
