MESSRS. E ITOBS: It is generally
conceded tba a newspaper expresses
the sentiment i of the community in
which it is published. If so, I, for |
one,* must protest against suoh arti?
cles as your "leader," of the 16th
?hst., headed "Dead Capital," being
construed as in icative of the senti?
ments, wishes or ictions of the plant?
ers of South C rolina. Yon assert
that tho land-hp biers of this State
"have made nc effort whatever to
convert their hundreds and thousands j
of uncultivated; acres into living,
active capital." i This is a mistake,
for I know of ? o th individual and
combined efforts'having been made,
but as yet with doubtful success. I,
myself, positively engaged several I
families to como from the vicinity of j
Portland, Maines bot the great ure,
I suppose, prevmted their coming
South. Other nntlemen have done,
and are doing, t?o same in this Dis?
trict. In fact, siveral planters have
received foreigners, and were unable
as well as unwilliig to keep them.
The State did appoint a Commis?
sioner of Immigration, and did ap?
propriate $10,0(0 to organize a
scheme that it wi'.l require millions to
perfect; but if she, in her great
desire for recuperation, could only
appropriate $10?)00, how much can
be reasonably Qcpected from indi?
vidual planters, most of whom have
scarcely been abe to subsist them?
selves and familbs for the past two
years? Certainly not an advance of
forty dollars (cunenoy) per head for
laborers, as is required by the State !
Commissioner in Iiis circular, and for
laborers, too, who, though they may
have seen cora growing, certainly
i never saw cotted, peas, cane, sweet
potatoes, or mott of our Southern
vegetables, under cultivation; all of
whom would be entirely unaccus?
tomed to our habits of life, and most I
of whom, in a tvelve-month, would
be unable to understand the simplest
direction, or ask, ia Euglish, for their
F#r such laborers, the Commis?
sioner thinks it bit reasonable to ad?
vance forty dollartper head to import
them, and then t?oontract with them
at one hundred aol fifty dollars per
annum, for men, and one hundred
dollars for womei. As well might |
you bo expected it pay journeyman's
wages to your devi.
You instance th) success of Virgi?
nia in the importation of labor.
This is no encouragement for South
Carolina "to go ard do likewise," for
the climate, soil aid staple products
of Virginia ure viery similar to those
of the valleys of-Switzerland. Vir?
ginia is essentialia grass, grain and
stook-growing Stfco, with a climate !
similar, and a soil luperior, to that of
tho Swiss. Aud yet, yon adviso
Sonth Carolina, t moro Southern
State, with hotter climate and less
fertile soil, and tinily different pro?
ducts, to go to a horo Northern Eu?
ropean country yr laborers. Tho
effort lind bettet be made from
Franco, Italy, Moticco. yes and Gozt<
go. J. am sure wejire better prepared
just now to mantle tho immigrants
from the last u.mtioncd country
than wo are to ad?pt ourselves, to the
changes which j would necessarily j
arise from the infix of the hordes of '
Qermans and Irishmen into South
Carolina, that yjou would seem to
have come amongus.
True, Messrs. 1*1? tors, we have the |
land, and that lard is "dead capital,"
but it is perfectly impossible for the
ownors to convert it into living copi*
tal, by adopting t$o scheme proposed
by the Commissioner, and advocated
by you. As well might you bo ex
peoted to issue a d?\ily newspaper
from a forty-horse pnntiog press,
when yon had not a pound of steam
to turn a wheel. I might' tell you,
and do tell the Commissioner, through
Sou, send me ten families who will
eoome permanent settlers, and I
will give each of them fifty acres of
land, with wood, water, ac arable
land enough, on each tract to do them
a life time; and I will biro them as
laborers for the first year or two, until
they "g?t a start in thc world." I
care not whether tbey are day-labor?
ers, mechanics, or house servants,
I'll employ the whole ten families at
reasonable wages. This proposition,
doubtless, would be made by hun?
dreds of the laud-holders of tho
State. But when you and the Com?
missioner proposo to me to advance
for the importation of these ten fa?
milies, (say twenty laborers,) eight
hundred dollars, and then further, to
promise to pay them for the first
year's labor, (when they will be sim?
ple apprentices,) twenty-five hundred
dollars, out of which I am refus dcd i
my $800 advancement; to my mind,
tho scheme becomes simply prepos?
terous. For myself, I prefer cling?
ing to the South Carolina planter's
"old prejudices," if by these you
mean the "nigger," for he can be in?
duced to work, if well paid, and after
ho has bogged through the slough
of politics for a while, will glide un?
consciously into his proper position,
the hewer of wood and drawer of
water for the South.
"Rome was not built in a day,"
neither should Northern Europe be
emptied into the Southern States, in
a twelve-month. If the tide of im?
migration, which now flows iuto New
York, were to breast the gulf stream,
and pour its myriads into Chnrleston,
Savannah and Mobiles provisions
conld not be had for the asking, I
assure you. It is questionable whether
South Carolina has, this prolific year,
produced a sufficiency of breadBtuffs
for home consumption; and if she
has not, the importation of thousands
of consumers would, for the ensuing
year, be equivalent to another
