Breadsta?T?-A Cheering Prospect .
The journals, not only of tho South,
but of the North and West, arc warn?
ing tho formera that, if they do not
look sharp, thoy will be behind timo,
aud their accumulated grain, which
they have been holding ou to, asa
quasi speculation, will lind a glutted
"market or? many weeks. There aro
largo imports of breadstuff's from tho
Pacific coast, via England, daily ar?
riving in tho Northern Atlantic ports.
Thor? is a prospect of peaco through?
out Europe, so that none of tho Ame?
rican grain will bo wanted thero. Tho
wheat crops, in every section, uro
moro abundant than thoy have been
for many years, and tho largest por?
tion, if not all, will be for homo con?
These causes, combiued, aro tum?
bling down prices iu tho grain marts
ol thia couutry with a velocity rarely
beforo witnessed. Wheat, it is esti?
mated by the knowing ones, will pos?
sibly rule at $firstname.lastname@example.org per bushel.
In tho great market of thc West,
Chicago, it has already fallen from
$2.85 per bushel to $1.90-a decline
of 95o. in less than one m?nth.
Within two days of last week, the
decline was 28o. per bushel, with a
still further downward tendency. In
the same market, corn that sold for
81.10 per bushel tho third week in
May, fell to 90c, on the 5 tb of Juno,
a difference of 20c. in less than three
weeks. Oats sold, on May 28, for
90c., but fell off, on Juno 5, to 60c
a difference of 30c. in a few days.
Bye, from ?1.57, in May, has fallen
to 81; and so on it is with many lead?
ing articles of provisions. Meat
generally accompanies breadstnffs ia
their fluctuations, and wo presumo is
also on the desceuding scale of prices.
This docliuo in prices, aud tho
abuudaut harvests ?ow ripeuiug for
the sickle in tho great grain-growing
.section of the North-west, portending
a still further decline, may sorely af?
fect tho interests ol" the speculators iu
the necessaries of life; but tho peo?
ple-tho consumers-and especially
thoso of tho impoverished ?Southern
States, ought and will, wo trust, re?
cognize iu all this present and forth?
coming abundance, tho boueficence
of tho Lord of thc harvest-thc pre?
cious gifts of tho Creator. Let us
not, then, despair. Let us hope that
tho same merciful dealings will bo
extended to us ns a people in other
fields of trial and struggle through
which we aro now being called to
paas, aud that cru another harvest is
ready for the reapers, tho silver
lining to the dark cloud which now
hangs over us as n pall may bc re?
vealed to a happy aud united people.
SHOUT SPEECH THOM MB. DAVIS.
Jefferson Davis made the following
brief speech to some gentlemen who
had waited ou him ut the residence
of Mr. Mason, in Canada:
"GENTLEMEN: I thank you sin?
cerely for the honor you havo this
evening shown to me; it shows that
truo British manhood to which mis?
fortune is always attractive. May
peaco and prosperity bo forever tho
blessing of Canada.* for she has been
tho asylum for many of my friends,
as she is now an asylum to myself. 1
hope that Canada may forever remain
a part of the British Empire, and
may God bless you all, aud the Bri?
tish flag never cease lo wave over
From these brief remarks, it would
seem that Mr. Davis, having found a
refuge in Canada, does not intend to
take up his permanent residence in
this country again. His other ex?
pression shows that be is opposed to
tho annexation of Canuda to thc
United States. We hope, however,
thut ere long circumstances will bo
such that ho may be ablo to take up
his residence at his old home, in Mis?
THE NEW GOVERNOR OF LOUISIANA.
B. F. Flanders, the new Governor of
Louisiana, was born iu 1810, in New
Hanipshire, moved to New Orleans in
1843, studied law, taught school, be?
came an alderman, became connected
with railroads, and, in 1861, left thc
State on account of bis devotion to
tho Union. In 1863, he was elected
member of Congress from Louisiana,
and resigned his position ns City
Treasurer; aoou afterwards, ho was
appointed Special Treasury Agent,
which office he resigned when ap?
pointed Governor by Sheridan.

.Nerd tlxero lie Division!
There appears to bo very little
doubt but that a majority of tho
registered voters iu this State will
voto for a convention, under tho re?
construction Acts, to remodel the
Constitution. There may be differ?
ences of opinion on this point, but,
as wo have intimated, a convention
will doubtless bo culled; and it ap?
pears to us that, beyond the differ?
ence alluded to, thero ribed not bo a
furthor division among the people of
Those who vote for u convention
will, of course, select thc best avail?
able men to represent them; while
those who cast their ballots against
convention should do the same. This
Ls the advice of Gov. Perry to those
who thiuk with him as to the impro?
priety of holding a convention at
this time, and such should bo the
conrso pursued by tho uon-convcu
We have heard many who ure op?
posed to any action under tho exist?
ing laws, say that they will not voto;
others, that they don't care who they
vote for or who may bo elected. This
is nil wrong. Thc citizens of the
proud old State of South Carolina
should not desert her in the hour of
her extremity, but perform their
rchole duty' towards her. Our own
conviction is that every qualified in?
habitant of tho State should register
and vote; aud whether he votes "for
convention" or "against convention,"
let him unite with his fellow-citizens
in seleoting tho mon best qualified to
discharge tho responsible duties
which will devolve upon members of
that body. Thero is no reason why
both conventionists and non-conven
tionists should not unite on the same
men, that parties and party strife on
mere personal issues may be avoided.
Our own opinion is well kuown-wc
think all should vote for convention,
ns tho first of the series of stepping
stones to carry us safely over thc
turbid waters of sectional strife tc
peace and restoration.
THE CROPS.-The Yorkville En?
Our farmers have begun the wei

sown, so fur as tho curly wheat i
concerned. From all accounts, tin
yield is better than was expected. I
the late wheat turns out to be at al

will be tho best made in the Distric
for twenty years. There is little dan

from excessively wet weather.

A letter in the New York Herald,
dated Columbia, 4th inst., says: 3
Next-we group together the opi- i
nions of half a dozen of the unrecon- ?
structed Southern Confederacy men
of South Carolina. Their testimony
is that of a very important am" iuflu- :
ential body of tho Southern planters
iu all tho cotton States. Says one:
' I have 500 acres iu cotton this year
and 250 in coru. I do uot expect to
make a dollar, oven with a good sea
sou. I havo souio fifty-odd freedmen
at work. Under our slave labor sys?
tem, I might expect a profit of 815,
000 or $20,000 from a first-rate crop.

fire-wood, garden patch, rations nt
ruinous prices, and one-fourth the
crop they make, and supplying
horses, mules, implements, Arc, I
shall make nothing, und will proba?
bly loso heavily. Tho great trouble
is,* these freedmen will only work
when it suits them. A political slump
orator comes ulong, or a religious
meeting is auuouuced iu tho middle
of tho week. They confer together,
they drop hoe and plough, and they
arc off for a day or two, when tho
crop most demands their attention. I
toll you, sir, I do not see thc end of
this. Wo old planters must get other
labor, or sell out and leave this couu?
try, for these free negroes will not do
for thc raising of cotton, rice or
corn. They will not do thc work re?
Another intelligent planter says:
"This Freedmen's Bureau, sir, should
bo called tho Bureau for tho Encou?
ragement of Idleness and Vice among
tho Freo Blacks. They eau make up
a tale of distress to suit the occasion.
They havo no clear conceptions of
what truth is, and they are adopts in
laziness and deception. Thoy have,
too, some uotious of confiscation aud
free farms; and some of them talk of
ruling the State. There are -100,000
of them iu South Carolina against
300,000 whites, aud they have boen
made aware of their power of num?
bers if combined agaiust us. Can you
wouder, sir, that quietly, and without
proclaiming it to the world, our white
people who can go are going to Bra?
zil, in companies of one, two or three
hundreds, notwithstanding tho Em?
peror's decreo of emancipation aud
the mixed condition of society in
Brazil? They go to escape from the
humiliations of a conquered people

And yet another of thone uncon?
verted Carolina planters says: "Wu
are just iu the condition of a juan
who has received a staggering blow,
and who cannot realize the extent of
his injury. We ure stunned, and we
are still. We have no fixed ideas,
hopes or purposes for the future.
Wc submit to otar misfortunes be?
cause we are powerless; but, sir, let
the Government of the United States,
during the existing Southern genera?
tion, or within the next twenty years, i
become involved iu a foreign war, ?
and by a sort of spontaneous com- ?
bustiou, you will develop the now i
smothered but still smouhU ring pub?
lic sentiment of the dominant white
class of the South."
"But suppose the tide of Northern
capital, emigration, enterprise and
ideas is turned in this direction,
"Why, then, sir, it will still take a
term of twenty years to eradicate our
prevailing Southern ideas. Mean?
time, it is my fixed belief that a
foreign war, even between the United
States aud Spain, would make these
five Southern military districts allies
of tho European. Certainly, in thc
case of England and France, [ think
this people would rise np once more
for a separate government. For

Remous for Reconstruction.
A writer iu tho Augusta Press is
reviewing, in a series of well-written
articles, the position of Gov. Perry,
and in opposition to his views. From
bis last article, we quote the follow- <
ing cogent reasons why the people of <
tho South should push forward tho
work of restoration:
"Why is it that the New York or
Boston broker can obtniu nil the
money he needs at six per eeut., on
the security of shares in nuy bubble
enterprise nt tho North, when our
land-owners, merchants and manu?
facturers aro refused n dime? Why
is it that tho merchants of two of the
largest and most populous cities in
Georgia aro compelled to ask for a
reduction of rents, on the ground
that they are not making expenses?
Why is it that thousands of acres of
productive land, qlready planted in
corn and cotton, have been aban?
doned because the owners have been
nnablo to procure provisions to feed
the laborers and beasts of burden
necessary to cultivate them and
gather thc ero])? The answer is, nil
this is tho case on account of the
political chaos which exists among
us, the instability of our Govern?
ment, and the suspension of all law,
as an eminent authority has justly
defined martial law, or thc govern?
ment of the .sword. While this con?
dition of affairs continues, property
is insecure, iudustry and enterprise,
which depend altogether for success
on peace and a faithful administra?
tion of just and stable laws, are
paralyzed, and society is in continual
apprehension of the disturbance and
trouble which would result from a
declared antugomisui between tho
white and black races. But restore
to us the power to make our own
laws, select our own officers, and re?
gulate our own affairs; relievo us
from the arbitrary and capricious
domination of the bayonet; protect
us against the Bpy, the informer and
the detective; and place us again
under the tegis of the law, ns defined
and limited by the Constitution.
Clive us peace and the right of self
government, and we shall at once
command whatever money and credit
wo need to rebuild our trade, com?
merce and iudustry, aud re-establish
the prosperity of the whole people.
Until these uro restored, and the
oppression und instability of military
rule are at au end, it is folly to expect
that our material condition will im?
prove. Without capital, all our in?
terests-agricultural, mercantile and
industrial-must languish and die, i
and to command capital wo must

A circular from the Freedmen's Bu?
reau, Washington, gives information
from Virginia and "South Carolina
that intemperance among the freed?
