_ Cotton Interest*
We have on ?everai occasions writ*
ten concerning the futuro prospect
of tho cotton interest of tho South,
and a brief current paragraph bringa
/ the subject again bef?te us. The
' paragraph alluded to, simply states
'. that,the South will shortly be driven
ont, of tho cotton trade, and that
1,000,000 bales of the staple are now
on their way to England,' from the
East Indies. As to some of the ad?
vantages v that India possesses over
tho South, for thta cheap production
, I, ol ?ho staple, it may be mentioned
that labor can be obtained there for
five oents per day, and that one of
tho Piffle?1*102 Thich Lav? ueretoiore
increased the cost of the article from
the East, viz ; the imperfect trans?
portation in that country-has been
Bormonntiv?: The East Indies, it is
stated, have now more miles of rail?
road in operation, than Spain, Italy
The Baltimore Sun calla attention
to another probability, and that is,
that when the home product of Eng?
land shall be deemed adequate to her
Supply, she may impose conditions
, upon the imports of American cot?
ton. Such are the lamentable results
to our interest and pride, from the
events of the past six years, and the
x policy which has succeeded them.
With on* depreciated currency and
high tariffs, under which the cost of
manufacturing is great, the manufac?
turers of this country can do little or
nothing in the foreign markets with
The cotton trade in Liverpool and
New York is already suffering severely
by the recent decline in the staple,
and the effects are beginning iu other
branches of business, not omitting
the manufacturing interest. These,
says the Sun, are unpleasant; bnt
they admonish the country of the
danger to all its groat interests, of
persistence in the policy which has
( produced such results, and the vital
importance pf wiso legislation and
restored friendship between the two
sections-whos6 interests are so
closely identified, that one cannot
suffer without injuring the prosperity
of the other. We most earnestly
hope that wiser counsels will pre rail
- in the next deliberations of the Na?
tional Legislature, and be followed
by speedy reconstruction.
The Charleston Mercury is not in
favor o? the Conservative Conven?
tion, which has boen called to meet
in this city. It says :
"Of the high and patriotic motives
-which have governed this call, we
havo not a doubt. Not, however,
having seen the correspondence 'with
influential public men at the North,'
wo may err in our anticipations; but
with 8uoh lights as we possess, we do
'not hesitate in expressing the opi?
nion, that tho cull is inexpedient, and
will most probably produce evil in?
stead of good."
In another paragraph, it says :
"It is true, that the call proposes
to regulato the course of the citizens
of the State, towards the State, as
well as 'to memorialize Congress to
reconsider the reconstruction bills.'
In our judgment, the course of the
citizen of the State, is simply to do
nothing. Let him stay away from
the polls, which are to be held for a
Convention; and leave to tho United
States military and the negroes, to
make and carry ou their government
of South Carolina."
This paper, some mouths ago, was
in favor of a Conservative Conven?
tion, to endeavor to unite all the
voters of tho State; but at this late
day, after registration has been com?
pleted, and very many of the candi?
dates nominated, we fear no special
benefit will result from snch a meet?
ing. _ ._
The Freedmen's Bureau will expiro
next July by limitation. It is under?
stood that General Howard will not
recommend its continuance beyond
that time, in case reconstrnction in
the South should bc accomplished.
In that event, ho will recommend a
comprehensive system of education
for tho colored youths South, by the
establishment of an extensive normal
school at Washington city, for tho
odncation of colored teachers and the
organization of normal schools for

LATER FBOM ?xHVTtsa--The WiW
ington Chronicle, of Wednesday, pub?
lished the views of Mr. Thaddeus
Stevens on the condition of tho coun?
try and the proper remedies for its
restoration, communicated to his
friend, D. Ck Pfeiffer, M. D., and
published at the request of Mr.
Stevens, because he fears that his
health will not be such as to enable
him to' give them utterance on the
floors of Congress.
Mr. Stevens assumes that the De?
claration of independence was de?
signed to secure to everybody certain
inalienable rights, and that the elect?
ive franohise ranks with "life" and
"liberty" in its inalienable character,
a proposition vrhioh does not require
a grave reply. But, when they
framed the Constitution, he says, our
fathers brxrtexed away, for the time
being, somo of those inalienable
rights. It was, however, a more sus?
pension of the right, which, he con?
tends, has been removed by the
adoption of the fourteenth amend?
ment to the Constitution, which de?
clares as follows:
"All persons born or naturalized in
the United States, and subject to the
jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of
the United States and of the State
wherein they reside. No State shall
make or enforce any law which shall
abridge the privileges and immuni?
ties of citizens of the United States;
nor shall any person bo deprived of
life, liberty or property, without due
process of law; nor deny any person
within its jurisdiction tho equal pro?
tection of the laws."
Mr. Stevena then argues:
"If by the amended Constitution
every American citizen is entitled to
equal privileges with every other
American citizen, and if every Ame?
rican citizen in any ono of tho States
should be found entitled to impartial
suffrage with every other American
citizen in any State, then il follows
as an inevitable 'conclusion that suf?
frage throughout this nation is im
Eartial and universal, so far as every
uman being, without regard to race
or color, shall be found concerned,
and so far as it effects the whole
The Baltimore Sun pertinently
"Why not also without regard to
sex or age? If women and children
are allowed to bo persons-as they
are-and if nil 'poraons' born in the
United States aro citizens, why
should thoy not bo 'found concerned,'
and be entitled to equal privileges
with all other citizens? If tho argu?
ment of Mr. Stevens does not provo
that, it proves nothing."
ADVICE TO THE SOUTIIEIIN FKEED
MEN.-The New York Times says:
"We trust that tho Southern blacks
will seo to it that those candidates for
Congress of their own color whom
they may support aro men of ability,
reason, sense and character. Wo
consider this warning necessary, be?
cause we notice**that tho white men
whom they have most prominently
sustained in the recent elections aro
not of this kind. Tho foremost of
thom aro wild, raving, incendiary
demagogues. On tho other hand,
many of tho black members of the
Convention aro very sensible, respect?
able persons-not much versed, per?
haps, in constitutional law, or tho
arts of Government, or the philoso?
phy of statesmanship, but 3'et pos?
sesed of a fair amount of common
sense. Tho colored voters may, per?
haps, think that men of this kind
have less chance of being favorably
received in Congress than black Huu
nicutts; but even if this were tho
case, these voters would do them?
selves honor by electing reasonable
and sensible representatives."
TUE FALI? BUSINESS IN NEW YOKE.
The Financial Chronicle speaks of tho
general disappointment of city mer?
chants nt the result of tho fall busi?
ness. During tho last live or six
weeks, tho volume of transactions has
declined very perceptibly; tho second
purchases of traders from the inte?
rior have been light; thc Southern
demand has fallon much below ex?
pectations, and the "near by" and
city trade demand has proved a fail?
ure. In ita commercial article, tho
Chronicle Bays that tho "prices of
merchandize hnve declined much
more than gold in the past two years,
and there is a disposition to now
look for a corresponding fall in gold,
rather than a re-action in merchan?
dize-a fact which causes buyers to
purchase only to supply their imme?
diate wants." It ia a faot of which
there are con?tont!y new prooio, lhat,
until the monetary basis of our com?
mercial transactions is specie, tho
fixed and universal standard of value
throughout tho world, there will bo
constant uncertainty in all branches
of business, and in all the industries
of the country.

MESSRS. FDETOBS: NO question of
deeper importance, or) of more vital
interest, can be proposed to the people
of the State. None of snob import?
ance and interest has ever been pre?
sented to the people, at any time in
the history of the country. "Well
may it be asked, what relief can be
given or afforded by the Convention,
which is about to be elected by the
people ? Let all the people ponder
the weight of the question.
I was a member of the Convention
of the State, in September, 1865,
and advocated before the people of
Newberry District this proposition
that the indebtedness of the people
should be so graduated in proportion
to the losses sustained by the war and
the freedom of the slaves, that the
indebtedness of tho country should
be reduced in proportion as the
value of the property of the country
'had been diminished. I thought
that the Convention, coming directly
from the people, had th? power to
do this, or something like it; or at
least, do that whioh would cause the
calamities and disasters of the war to
be shared by all classes equally, or
rateably, so far as this could be done.
I think this would be doing justice
The credit of the country was based
on the value of the property in it. A
large part of that property-and that,
too, the most available and most valu?
able iu the South, not only iu this
State-consisted of slaves; their
emaucipation has deprivod tho people
of a large amount of property-all
their lands have depreciated very
much in value. Bank stocks and all
other stocks have also depreciated in
value; and it is manifest, that if tho
country, with its lands aud every?
thing else, were put up to bo sold
in the shoriff's hammer, all would
not near bring what would pay off
the indebtedue8s of tho country.
Anything so plaiu as this, needs no
argument to illustrate it-it is "so
plain, that a way-faring man, though
a fool, need not err," in this respect.
In this state of things, the great bulk
of the people would be turned out of
doors, and a few money holders
would become the owners of tho
lands. CHU auy man, who has the
common feelings of humanity, look
upon the scenes of distress and misery
that would thus be produced, aud
have no feelings of compassion? Per?
haps ho who could see nothing but
gold, could with indifference behold
such a sceno ! None other could, I
I do not know who will composo
the .nembers of tho Convention; but
wk? over they aro, they will have
grave and responsible duties to per?
form. They need not suppose they
can hastily, and without mature de?
liberation, meet and frame a Con?
stitution, without being held to a
strict accountability for the work they
do, and tho manner iu which it is
Something must bo done for the
relief of tho country and the people
who dwell iu it. To overburden
them with taxation, and to lay nny
heavy tax on industry, is wrong.
Lands should not bo heavily taxed,
because that is making our commou
mother pay because wo draw our
nourishment from her bosom. Wise
statesmen never tax lands high; tho
taxes on lands should always be low
-and this is true of all taxation.
And if the Convention can or will do
nothing else, they should be careful
to secure to every family a home?
stead, sufficient for the support of
the family, which could never bo
sold under execution. This should be
the fundamental law of the land
Wo aro aware that repudiation is
spoken of in some quartors, and tho
Convention may adopt some measure
of that sort. Tho principle of repu?
diation is acknowledged by all Go?
vernments, though it is called by
another name. He who avails him?
self of tho benefit of tho bankrupt
law, gets clear of all his debts, except
those which arc excepted from tho
operation of the law; and, when dis?
charged as a bankrupt, bc is dis?
charged from his debts, except ns
provided in tho Act of Cougress.
This, then, is repudiation, according
to law, aud tho debts from the pay?
ment of which ho is discharged can
never bo recovered against him by
law. A baukruptcy is pleaded in
bar of tho recovery. Is not this the
very principle ol' repudiation? It is
doue, however, according to law.
What is thc difference between tho
doing of it by Act of Congress and
by a Convention of tho people
except this, that tho ono is done by
the authority of the Constitution, and
is applicable to the people of tho
United States, and the other is done
by tho people of tho State, and o?n
uot be applicable farther than to the
people of the State? Tho principio
is tho samo iu both cases, for the
debt is wiped out.
These thoughts have been suggest?
ed, or rather brought to mind, by an
article nndor tho editorial head,
"Relief,"in Wednesday's paper. I
have presonted them to elicit thought
and reflection. People must think
and act. Tho condition of the coun?
try demands tho rolioctions and sug?
gestions of our best men. Tho
country is prostrated; wiso counsels
are needed io put tho people in a
condition to reprieve their losses. It
will take time to enable the people to
recover. A short period was sufficed
to prostrate tho energies of tbe poo
ple; years will elapse bef?te the for?
mer prosperity of the Country is
restored. I see the ruin before tbe
people-^I love my State and her
people, and therefore have I spoken.
! Vicrron EMMANUEL.-Whatever moy
bo the result of the impending colli?
sion between Garibaldi and the hero?
ism of young Italy on the onn side,
and Napoleon and the flunkey ism of
old Italy on the other, it seems in?
?vitable that Victor Emmanuel, hav?
ing forfeited the confidence and re?
spect of both sides, mnst be ground
to powder as between the upper and
nether mill-stone. To have taken
sides vigorously with either, party,
might have shattered bis power; but
it would not have bu uuuipieteiy de?
stroyed his character and conse?
quence. He evidently had the^am
bition to desire that Garibaldi should
present the Eternal City to Italy as
its capital, or ho would by seasonable
and sincere vigor have prevented
Garibaldi's movements. Ho was will?
ing to equivocate, and pray "good
Lord" to Napoleon, and "good De?
vil" to Garibaldi, so long as equivo?
cation involved only cowardice. He
fain would wound, but feared to
strike the blow. Holding his crown
by tho permission of two opposing
elements, young Italyon tho one side
and Franco on the other, he ventured
to drift into a disgraceful crisis, by
acting in concert with neither, and
alienating tho confidenco of both.
Hod ho been a statesman, ho would
have allowed no rupture with Gari?
baldi, without entering into thorough
alliance with Napoleon, or if he broke
faith with Napoleon, would have first
secured the aid and support of Prus?
sia. As it is, while Garibaldi vin?
dicates his greatness as a revolution?
ist, and Napoleon avails himself of
tho dilemma to assume a still more
controlling position, Victor Em?
manuel melts in tho fiery ordeal like
an imago of wax. He can never
again win tho homage or admiration
of tho Italian people.
