Wu- give below: another excellent
editorial from th? pen Of Mr.. Printe?,
the chief editor of the New York
Journal of Commerce:
If nn election' of any kind were to
bc hold in the South within tho next
three months, there is no reasonable
donbt that three-fourths of tho negro
vote would bo cast with the Southern
white vote. There is perfect accord
between tho larger portion of the
freedmen and the white population.
This is but natural. Tue negroes
wore as ardent enemies of the North
as their masters during the war. They
had no theories to sustain, and no
special caro as to what questions
were involved in the contest. They
sympathized with tho people who
surrounded them; and if the oath of
allegiance were distinctly understood
by the freedmen when it is adminis?
tered to them, nine-tenths of them
would be unable to say that they had
not lent willing aid and comfort to
the rebellion. Having stood firmly
by their masters in the trials of the
war, they are still likely to stand by
them in all pnblio questions. It seems
to be from a knowledge and apprecia?
tion of these facts, that the men who
are seeking to use tho negro vote fot
partisan purposes find it necessary to
delude tho poor fellows with promises
of a division of the lands among
them. The serious question for the
freedmen now ought to be how to
establish a regular and -permanent
system of paid labor, and how to fix
tue rate of payment so as to approxi?
mate as nearly as may bo to the old
rate-namely, a support for tho la?
borer and his family, in sickness and
health, childhood and old age. But
the interference of politicians is ope
rating to prevent the determination
of these questions, and postpone tho
day of calm settling down. It is im?
possible to regard the speech-making
missions of Northern politicians to
the Southern negroes as anything
but injurious to them. It is, in fact,
adding the final blow to their ruin ns
a people. Unless they settlo down to
work, and take tho position of labor?
ers whose labor is necessary, and
must be cherished and cared for, they
will rapidly perish. Tho suffrage ia
in danger of proving the destruction
of tho race. It would ordinarily take
a generation to ]r-irn tho require?
ments of the new order of things!
Where the iuforests of employers are
so deeply involved in the education
of the employed, the process or ac?
commodation to tho new system
might be much more rapid. But thc
temptations to idleness which politi?
cal speakers are offering them, ar?
too strong to bo resisted by theil
feeble intellects, and they are easily
led to ruin. They would go ranci
faster if the promises were fulfilled
If the lands were divided auiont
them, and they made to depend 01
their own labor for the product o
their own farms, tho race would mel
away in two or three generations.
Thc Southern negro is very mucl
like a hot-house plant. He need
constant care and advice. Expos ur
is dangerous. It is nstonishing t
observe how many of them seem ti
be ill, how few are free from cough
and indications of disease. The;
know nothing about taking caro o
themselves. They require advice
watching and constant help. Thea
aro the general truths, while the ea
ceptions serve by contrast to mak
tho common rule more visible.
Tho future, therefore, looks doubt
ful to tho Southern people. There i
reason to fear that the negro rac
will disappear. Already it is plai
that it will not be able to supply th
demand for labor which is sure to b
made within a few years. Tho ind:
cations aro that they will diminis
from year to year, while the denian
will increase in more rapid ratio. J
these questions were left to th
management of Southern men, thc
would be considered with great care
and tho utmost attention would h
paid to the comfort and well-being c
the freedmen. Tho best friends the
have in tho world are Southern en
ployers, and their worst enemies ai
those who, however honestly, ai
seeking to divert their attention froi
the primary question of bread, au
clothing, and shelter, to the work <
governing a great nation. Unfit i
present to govern themselves, the
ought to be spared tho miserable di
basion of thinking they aro fit 1
make laws for the world or the grea
est nation in it.' The direction <
their minds howard such subjec
results in their absolute destructioi
physical as well ns moral.
There aro many reasons for belie
ing that tho tendency of things in tl
South is toward tho breaking up
tho old system of large plantatioi
employing many hands. These wi
continuo in somo sections, beean
no other system can be made to wo
successfully. But it will not 1
strange if tho general mle shall hei
after bo more like that at tho Nort
wliero the farmer cultivates a sim
farm, requiring but few hands. He
cowes in, however, the question
emigration-whether it can be turn
to the South, and how. Tho worh
history has shown that emigrati
does not tend to warm climates. Y.
here aro inducements such aa wt
never before offered. A land or
teeming with abundance, rich s
which rewards labor ten-fold, t
prospect of crops which arc mi
valnablo than mines of gold, tho o
tainty that the soil will yield supp
to the laborer and his family fp
. thc tir : i^int the seed grows-th
(ind other Telson s maj tempt th?
emigrant. - > - [|
j Bat the people of the South mast
do something to i nd < ice immigration,
and otto of tho first things necessary
is to . persuado their railway compa?
nies to establish second-class through
rates of fare at a low tariff. Tho
present rates are only local, and very
high. When we compare the coat of
going from New York to St. Louis or
Chicago with the cost of going as far
Southward, we see reasons why the
emigrant cannot now be induced to
try the latter.
There are fine openings for the
organization of emigrant companies
in the South. Largo tracts of im?
proved lund can be bought at a low
figure, and these lauds sold to emi?
grants in alternate sections would at
once become more valuable than in
the most prosperous days of old.
