Profits of Cotton Planting.
Actual experience is better than
any mero theories, especially as re?
gards practical results as to tho profit?
ableness of cotton planting; and it
behooves tho agriculturists of tho
South to count tho cost before they
devote tho largest breadth of their
land to tho culturo of tho staple.
Tho New Orleans Times has a detail?
ed statement of the results on a cotton
plantation in Mississippi A planter
in that State found that, on an ave?
rage, during ten years, his yearly crop
of cotton was about four bales of lint
to each hand employed-say 450
pounds to tho halo. Wo abridge his
account current, which figures up ns
10 hands make 40 bales
18,000 pounds-of cotton, va?
lued at 25o. per pound.$4,500
From which has to be deduct?
ed the expenses of getting
1 the sam? to market, includ?
ing river and fire insurance,
freight, revenuo tariff, weigh?
ing, drayagc, storage, com?
missions, so., footing up... 8G5
Thero has to be now deduct?
ed tho expenses on the
Wages of 10 hands, at
$12 per month.$1,440
Rations for do. 720
Corn and feed for
working stock. 800
Blacksmith's bill, re?
pairs, . loss of live
stock, rent of plan?
tation and other ex?
Actual loss to tho planter. $800
We havo the authority of the Times
Cor-saying that the above statement
is from an old resident of tho State
he writes from, and who has had
much to do with cotton for a long
series of years. Four bales to the
hand, ho says, is about an average
from one season to another. He ar?
gues that there is no prospect for a
cultivator to realize sustenance for
himself and family, with cotton at
t"venty-five cents per pound, for thero
is no allusion mado to household and
famUy expenses in tho above esti?
But besides these figures from our
New Orleans cotompornry, there are
still further and weightier reasons
why Southern planters should curtail
tho breadth of their cotton lands this
season. The price of cotton is put
down, in the above estimate, at twen?
ty-five cents per pound. But what
guarantee have our cotton producers
that the staple will command that
price next fall? On tho contrary,
with au almost universally conceded
impending war in Europe, it is pretty
certain that tho demand will largely
decrease, and prices proportionally
decline. And again, tho price of
grains, all descriptions of breadstufi's
and provisions, on the happening of
this war, will as surely go ap, and
not only will prices go up, but there
will bo a scarcity, owing to the great
demand from abroad. Superadded to
all this, is tho fact now too painfully
apparent, that there will bo no bread
or breadstufi's in tho-South, compara?
tively speaking, when the next crop
will be harvested.
All these considerations, especially
the still later one, brought so forcibly
before us by tho exigencies and dis?
turbances to trade andcommorce, and
tho drain of breadstuffs from these
shores, induce us to keep thc subject
prominently beforo our readers, and
to prevent that famine which will
surely afflict tho South, if a sufficiency
of food is not mado within her own
borders. It is difficult now to obtain
enough to feed our people, either by
purchase or through tho many ave?
nues of charity recently opened for
thc purpose. How much moro diffi?
cult will it bo to keep starvation off
next season, when tho foreign de?
mand and lrigh prices will absorb tho
usual supply and exhaust the re?
sources from which wo have hereto?
fore drawn that supply.

"Th? Situation ot tb? South.
Erastus Brooks, tho able editor of
tho New York Repress, was iu attend
auco nt the Press Convention recently
held nt Atlanta. He is corresponding
from that oity to his paper, and wo
extract tho following from bis last
General Pope is here, nud has made
a satisfactory speech to tho peoplo.
If they obey the law of Congress,
well. If not, then it may not be well.
All tho men he bas hero, nud coming
here, is but a few over tho third of a
regiment, but ono company would be
cuough to carry out the law of Con?
gress, and as good as 10,000 men.
Tho most subdued men aro some of
tho old secession leaders-like ex
Governor Brown, whose homo is here,
and whose influence has beeu im?
mense throughout tho Stnte. Such
men counsel submission to tho lew,
and regard it as irrevocable. Gov.
Jenkins counsels, not resistance but
nou-actiou, and, from all I see iud
hear, will be over-ruled by au immense
majority of the people. The heart
of the people is broken, aud their
spirits humiliated. Two years of
drought, oue season of Hoods, mouths
of positive hunger, have followed
four years of war, made up of bom?
bardments, sieges, fires, loss ' of lifo
and property. Congress, with its
harsh policy of uegro suffrage, mili?
tary mouarchics, registrations, arrests
aud punishments, stay laws-as iu
South Carolina-is au easy master of
the situation; only you must not ex?
pect tho smitten to love the smiter,
for as blood is thicker tbau water,
nature stronger than coercion, this
is simply impossible. "Do with us
as you will, and wo will obey," is the
general purpose, and Georgia is good
for it by 20,000 or 30,000 majority,
notwithstanding the letter from Gov.
Jeukius. If I were a Southern man,
with my home and friends destroyed,
a war prosecuted against me two
years, after I had laid down my arms,
with no permanent peace or stability
in prospect, with a hopo of something
permanent and established by further
concessions, I would do the same
thing, for until there is an end of ex?
actions by obedience to decrees, there
can be no peace. War is not poUtics,
but revolution. The South is in the
bands of Government as clay in the
hands of the potter. In seeking to
ovortbrow tho Government of tho
United States, it destroyed itself.
President Lincoln has been over?
ruled, President Johnson is over?
ruled, tho Congressional policy of
18G1 and 1862 is over-ruled, and uow
all the civil, provisional and elected
Governments of ten States aro in the
bands of five United States Militar}'
Governors. Writing bore, in sight
of Stono Mouutuiu aud Lookout
Mour. '.am, and tho Kennesaw, watch?
ing where Sherman swiiug his army
iu one direction, and Gen. Johnston
iu another-restiug at the headquar?
ter, of Hood aud Polk-walking over
thc ground where the brave McPher?
son fell-seeing yet the smouldering
ruins of war all ulong from thc bor?
ders of tho Tennessee to this "Gate
City," a thousand miles above tho
sea-oue can better imagine the ne?
cessities and peualties, than apon
nursing under his own vino aud tig
tree, at home. I am not surprised,
therefore, at the eager desire of brave
and mistaken men to l-ebuild what
has beeu torn down. Tho needs, of
thousands of widows and orphaus
demand this, even if there were no
higher appeals "You take my life,
when you do take tho means whereby
I live," is as true at least of the Chris?
tian as of tho Hebrew. Therefore,
let no Northern man vonturo to blame
the South for submitting to inevita?
ble necessity. The principle laid
down by Blackstone, that "any Go?
vernment is better tbau uoue at all,"
iu this case, decides tho issue. Mili?
tary monarchy, in our part of North
America, is so repugnant to all our
ideas of liberty, that auy peaceable
means of getting rid of it is excusa?
ble, if not commendable.
One ihing, howover, creates a burn?
ing fever at tho South', and that is tho
demand made upon the peoplo,
through tho Constitutional amend?
ment, to dishonor the loaders of tho
rebellion. All theso leaders were
made so by tho peoplo themselves, or
by their representatives. If Congress
chooses to dishonor them, they will
submit with becoming grace, and the
end secured through this Act, like
many others, will bo in violation of
the Constitution; but do not, they
implore us, compel tho Southern peo?
ple themselves to striko down meu
they placed in tho front rank by their
own acts. Such au appeal surely
ought to be appreciated, .-.??uv almost
every other demand, and, indeed,
every other exaction, will bo con?
THE INDIANS OP THE PLAINS.-It
seems to ns that affairs on the plains
might be better managed. Tho In?
dians band together, make raids,
plunder, steal and murder, and gene?
rally when our troops come up with
them, a temporary peace is patched
up, the "noble savago" is compli?
mented with medals, sugar, coffee,
blankets, and sometimes with ammu?
nition, then goes his way, aud in a
short timo is on another plundering
and murdering expeditiou. It is
about timo that this mingling of tra?
gedy and farce was ended.
The Appletons aro soon to build in

Th? Case of Jefferie-i Davit.
Tho Philadelphia Ijedgv lisa the
following remarks upon the case of
The next term of the Circuit Court
of the United States for Virginia, will
bo held at Richmond in May. At
this term, Jefferson Davis ought to
bo arraigned for high treason, but
thero is very little probability of his
trial being had. Chief Justice Chase
objects to holding a court whilst
martial law exists in Virginia, and un?
less tho Chief Justice is present, no
court can bo held (Virginia l>eing in
the Chief Justice's circuit.) lt is
understood thnt the counsel for the
prisoner will visit Richmond ac the
commencement of the term, and will
ask for a trial. Au indictment for
treason has already been found
against* Jefferson Davis, buta motion,
it is said, will be made to quash it on
accouut of various informalities. The
Act of 1790, under which TDavis is ar?
raigned, declares that "no person or
persons shall bo prosecuted, tried, or
punished for treason or other capital
offence aforesaid, wilful murder or
perjury excepted, unless the indict?
ment for the same shall be found by
a grand jury within three years next
after the treason or capital- offence
aforesaid shall be dono or commit?
ted." If the present iudictmeut be
quashed, n new ono must be found
before April, 1868, the rebellion
having ended in April, 18G5, or else
a trial will be prevented by the
above provisions of the law. There
is no probability of a trial being had
in May, and tho mystery of What to
do with tho leader of the rebellion
is now no nearer a solution than it
was at the time of his capture.
A correspondent of a Now York
Intelligence was received here on
Wednesday, from Richmond, which
shows'that it is, after all, again iu
doubt as to whether Judge Under?
wood will essay the trial of Jefferson
Davis at tho May term of the United
States District Court. If the term
be adjourned without such trial, tho
President has determined to at onco
release Davis from confinement at
Fortress Monroe, on nominal bail.
The President has in his possession a
letter signed by leading Republicans,
asking that Davis be released, and
also a proposition from Horace
Greeley, offering to be one of Mr.
The execution of tho military bill
has commenced at New Orleans. For
the benefit of all concerned, we give
a specimen of its iuitial working,
which is taken from the New Orleans
"Tho registration of voters, yester?
day, did not proceed, iu some of thc
districts, at least, as satisfactorily as
might have been desired. As wo
feared, the large discretion left in tho
hands of the registrars, and the action
to which it has gi von rise, have
created a very general feeling of dis?
satisfaction among our people. Unless
tho course adopted by the registering
officers has been sadly misrepresent?
ed, thoy have carried into tho per?
formance of a gr ive public duty their
own partisan prejudices, and many of
their decisions are so manifestly ille?
gal that, unless revised and reconsi?
dered, they will amount to a practical
denial of justico to tho great mass of
the white citizens of Louisiana. On
the text of the law by which certain
of our people aro disfranchised, we
have already commented, and have
also given tho opinions of eminent
jurists on thosubject. But the regis?
trars have adopted, as it would seem,
a far moro rigid interpretation, and
rejections wore made by them yester?
day which wo think will be pro?
nounced by all sound thinkers as
illegal and unjust. Instead of con?
struing such doubts as may arise in
favor of liberty and personal freedom,
they have followed an opposite
course, and hp ? been led into errors
which aro glaringly erroneous.
Armed with convenient 'doubts,' they
reject the claims of citizens whoso
right to vote cannot bo questioned on
any logal, moral or constitutional
grounds. In view of these facts, we
trust that Gen. Sheridan will exercise
a portion of that authority with which
ho is legitimately vested, so as to
remove exist?, and well founded
causes of dissatisfaction. Unless
such a course be pursued, tho 'fantas?
tic tricks' of irresponsible agents may
serve to tarnish a high military repu?
tation and check that spirit of return?
ing loyalty among our people which
ovcry true patriot and statesman
should encourage. If tho object bo
to rcstoro harmony, the registry law
should be liberally interpreted; but if
it bo simply to pcuire a party triumph
by the disfranchisement of tho great
mass of our white citizens, the exclu?
sivo course inaugurated yesterday
will provo eminently successful."

The* great number of pianos that

is the fact that tho parties to whom
these boxes aro directed aro not of
the class, socially speaking, supposed
to have any great interest in thc

perhaps their music is about to bo
