Wednesday Moiuing, Nov. 13.1867.
Hot long since, wo published Borne
?Attiatics in. regard to the cost of
?swing cotton, tho average price ob
, tawed for it, and tho consequent loss
vt? ?hc planter. We And the position
. JBjMftained by an orticlo in a Columbus
fJUGasisflippi) paper, in which the
stater asserts that very few planters,
ottilie present price of tho article,
-??d the great failing in ita produc?
ion, will bo able to aquare up ac?
.?.anta o? the first day of January,
?-*f-a GottO? ??iiU?? un i ?io ?d Tur
lose than twenty cents per pound,
.Aear of taxes, freight and commis
v mano-and that will not pay where
inri than four bales is raised to the
Ml ur nr ;
The writer sustains his position,
2fcy iciting the production of thirty
?hreo plantations, in two Counties of
.IGgsisaippi. Beforo the war, the
.---rop of cotton on these plantations
--.ww.7,000 balee-this year they only
?produced 2,500 bales-at the same
time, said orop was better th au the
' " ?general crop in the neighborhood. As
?V some ?rf these planters are giving
?one-third, and others one-fourth of
their crops to the freedmen, not more
than 1,800 bales will be realized by
the planters from these thirty-three
plantations. These 1,800 boles, esti?
mated at $70 per bole net, will bring
-#136,000; while the meat, corn, bag
,<jing, and-other expenses-the loss of
?flea, 'wear and tear of farming im
?pleseeata, &a, used in running these
- (-plantations-will not, it is estimated,
?bo less than from 8200,000 to $250,
-aOQO. If this estimate be correct
-and it is from a planter-here is a
j : Velear loss of $75,000 to $100,000.
'.These calculations are very dis?
couraging, and no doubt they ap
proximate to the truth-so mach as
to bave the effect of largely diminish -
dng the production of the staple and
tend to a diversification of Southern
.agriculture. Wheat ought to be
/plantedabundantly; horses, hogs and
.cattle ought to be raised abundantly.
The general production of cereals
'?rill render us independent of buying
-?er begging our Bubsistenco from
loreign sources. Fruits, potatoes,
(beans, peas, cabbages and onions,
?arin grow-hare as well as elsewhere,
?id should bo extensively cultivated.
. "^Phcn raise a small snpply of cotton,
. Jtot more than can be manufactured
iTfikltomo, hi our own milla'and facto
* ?eft. .In this way the Southern States
. may become prosperous and inde?
pendent; while if they cling to the
apeliey of making cotton their chief
production, and hold on to their
"le?ge plantations, they must not only
jbecoine impoverished, but, in a few
years, will find themselves bankrupt.
'THE GRAIN CROP.-The monthly
ceport of the Commissioner of Ag
. . ?icultuto states that a larger wheat
. ?snap never has been raised in this
?sauntry than during tho present sea
.on, though it is not as Inigo as tho
breadth sown might have led us to
...expect The most noticeable in
?treaso lias been in the Southern
?States, with the exception of Texas.
.Oat? and rye are estimated above the
j?ieM of last year, barely slightly
?below, beaus and peas are un ave?
nge. In corn, tho cash value, and
ftSte fattening and sustaining quali?
t?s, are greater than last year,
Sorgho cultivation generally is ro
.?acud; buckwheat is un average crop,
potatoes a poor one, and in tobacco

A CONSPIRATOR. -Tho Nul ional In
tdligencer, of Saturday, has a remark?
able editorial on Gen. Grant. It
jgravsly intimates that ho has oncour
taged >cortniu member? of the rump,
as woll as less important personages,
itt a conspiracy, by force, intimida
sioa and tn rent, to prevent certain
&igu functionaries from holding and
exercising offices, trusts and places of
monfidenco in the Government of the
United States. It is alleged, more?
over, that tho conspiracy referred to
.is ?till on foot, notwithstanding the
complexi?n of the recent elections,
.and contemplates an early consum?
The Intelligencer goo3 on to show,
ejecting an Act cf Congress, o? 1861,
how these conspirators may bo pun?
ished. We doubt the truth of such
.charges against Gen. Grant. We are
living in strange times.
There is much discussion as to the
value of thia new class of labor?is
for Southern ag; I lu?fcural, work-Borne
regarding the experiment of their
introduction as a failure, whilo others,
who have them at work, pronounce j
thom a co ax pie te t H ucee ss. Among
the latter is Dr. Kittridge, of Lou?
isiana. He obtained his laborers in
Cuba, and the agent furnishing them
stated the planters would not permit
the best of these coolies to leave the
island, payiug them from $15 to $25
per month in gold, rather than part
with them. Dr. K. allows them $14
per month. They don't mind the
sun "^hilc r.t ".vorI:, but, ? lieu wuikiug
out pn Sunday, uso red umbrellas
and fans. Their color is a light cop?
per, hair straight and black, like the
Indians, unmn shaving the head on
tho sides and top, leaving a cue be?
hind. They bathe often, and wear a
white blouse: Dr. K. gives tho fol?
lowing about their characteristics ns
"They ore neat cooks, good gur
denors, and ingenious, and whatever
they do is done well, but not quickly.
Those on tho plantation speak Span?
ish, and a Creole manages them, act?
ing as interpreter. They are always
quiet, working steadily tho whole day
long, and peaceable and satisfied,
without murmuring to do whatever is
required, working as freely in knee
deep ditch mud as iu tho He'd.
"They cut up every weed with
great care, (different from any garden?
ers,) not permitting n blade to escape
their notice; and with this caution, of
course, they do not go ahead as fast us
Sambo, who is much more careless
in his task. Although it became ne?
cessary to work rapidly ou account of
the grass iujuring the crop, the
coolies could not bo induced to slight
their work. They worked among the
sugar cane with their lingers, pulliug
ont all the grass and heaping the
hill? handsomely with their hoes."
As regnrds the alleged stealing dis?
position or malicious propensities of
this new class of laborers, Dr. Kit
tridge believes they will give their
employers no more trouble than the
whites or blacks. Such are his views
after a fair trial, and he thinks they
will be the best laborers for Louisi

accomplished writers, who have done
their part with close and conscien?
tious research, and have endeavored
to moko up a chronicle neither over
I wrought nor over-colored, as I can
testify. For tho greater part of the
statements of the narrative I am re?
sponsible, and all facts and incidents
derived from other sources are pro?
perly credited in the foot-notes. It
is hoped thnt justice will be found
dono in some degree to tho courage,
zeal, fortitude and other soldierly
qualities of tho mon of 'Forrests
Cavalry,' for that has been the main
purpose of tho work.
