TTl?c AVjn upon Cotton Culture-It?
Tho civil war would not Lave de?
stroyed tbo culturo of cotton in the
Southern States, had not radical le?
gislation como to the aid of war and
? its ravages. Delusivo hopes of ne?
gro -equality or suprernocy deranged
tho labor which was necessary for the
.cotton culture, and the cotton tax
added to this, rendered it unremune
?xat^ve, The policy of England to
?opon new sources for cotton supply,
is another cause of the loss of our
.cotton market. Neither England nor
tho radicals have exhibited foresight
ia thus accomplishing the ruin of the
d&otion culture in that region, which
is peculiarly adapted to it by soil,
colic?ate? labor and the habits and
?energy of the planters. The Eastern
'States and England he.ve, in cou
scquenoe, lost the Southern trade.
"The ?outh cannot purchase and pay
lor the goods and merchaudizo for
Saerly received from England, and
from New York and New England.
Neither can the South pay for the
?supplies of provisions and bread
stuATs which it formerly received from
?the West. The entiro country, and
all foreign countries with which we
jure engaged in commerce, should be
interested in sustaining the cotton
production in our Southern and
South-western regions. The National
Intelligencer calls attention to the
(movements among Northern manu?
facturers, commencing lately at Pitts?
burg, and now seconded every whero
in tho West and East, which tend to
tho relief of tho cotton staple from
onerous burdens; but they do not
far enough. Tho tax of 2}.< cents
-pound takes from tho producers of
the-orop of 1867 $23,000,000. This
sum ought to be left iu tho hands of
tho producers, as a means for at?
tempting another crop. The objec?
tion to it is, that speculators may bo
benefited by it. The faot is, how?
ever, that 2,000,000 bales of the crop
- of the present season are still in tho
li&nds of thc original producers, only
-TiOO.OOO bales having come forward.
This fact is attested by the New York
financial Chronicle, which is accurate
.-authority. But Congress refused to
. Apply the repeal to the crop of tho
year 1667, and have also unreason?
ably delayed action on the repeal bill
?ill after the period of tho year when
?h.* planters must make their arrange
sacnts for the coming season, by
.firing labor, .tc. Various motives
3ifive been ascribed to tho Eastern
ra.ticul politicians for their persistent
'hostility to the recuperation of
. Southern prosperity and industry.
.Sotno of their leaders, as we may see
from their nets and speeches, enter?
tain the hope thnt a great black em
vptre will arise on the ruins' of the
Southern States; n new Africa, to be
governed by Africans, and to be sub?
ject to the moral, social and political
scteie.sts of Northern fanaticism, is
to be legislated into cxistenco in the
place of the white civilization in the
South. The whites will thus be com?
pelled to abandon tho country, and
leave it to African barbarism, By
maintaining in the Southern States a
standing army of black voters, pro?
tected Iry Government organizations
?and military force, this revolution
eau be effected, und tho radicals be
assured of perpetual control over the
couutry. Therefore, it is the radical
Stttders' doctriuc, that though slavery
:s abolished, tho slave-masters are
not yat subdued.
There are others who really thought
i.liat a successful competition with
cotton could bc created in tho North
by substituting for it Northern pro?
ducts of wool and flax, and, perhaps,
3ther materials. It was confidently
inserted that cotton had been a curse
to tho country, and that in no point
of view could it bo as beneficial to the
Asoblic interests ns tho products of
wool and flax. To encourago wool
growing at the exponso of ootton
growing became a leading object of
?Adical legislation. Heavy duties
vore therefore imposed on foreign
*;ocl, to tho encouragemout of the
domestic product. But tho scheme
2>raotioally failed. Flax cotton was
iricd and abandoned. The woolen
manufactures did not thrive, and do?
mestic wool fell in ?nice. According
to Senator Sprogue, the wooley ma?
nufacture is now more depressed than
that of colton. As Congress insists
upon drawing tho tax of $23,000,000
from the South upon tho crop of
1S67, it has been proposed to substi?
tute for it, as an encouragement to
tho production of cotton another
ye r, a bounty upon tho next crop to
the amount of two aud-a-half cents
a pound. This would accord with
tho protective theory. An advance
to tho cotton-growing States, for the
encouragement of the planting inter?
ests, by way of a loau of Govern?
ment credits, based upon tho crop,
has also been proposed. If Congress
rejects these propositions, thon it will
follow that an appropriation of equal
amount must be mndo for the desti?
tute and suffering freedmen of the
plotting Str.tcc. Ii that be also re?
jected, a very large expenditure must
bo made for the prevention of tho
disorders which now threateu to rise,
or the suppression of those which
have actually arisen.
LAND TO DE GIVEN AWAY.-The
Fernandina Courier, of the 9th inst.,
co nt iii ns the two following items:
Some of the very best land in Flo?
rida, lyiug along the railroad, between
Fernandina and Cedar Keys, is being
selected for town sites and laid off in
lots of twenty to eighty acres, to bo
given free to actual settlers. These
lands are especially suited to garden?
ing and fruit-growing, nnd in this
superb climate, with the advantages
of rapid communication by ra\l and
steamship with New York, and the
benefits of thickly settled communi?
ties, will be rapidly taken up and
provo not only pleasant homes for
tho occupants, but most profitable
ones. There is not a better location
in tho whole South for growing and
shipping early vegetables than around
Fernandina and along this railroad.
At this time (January 8) all kinds of
vegetables are growing in our gar?
dens, untouched by frost. Green
peas are in blossom and fit for the
table. Tomato vines aro yet ripen?
ing their second crop. Tho grass is
green along our walks; tho Kweet
singing birds fill tho air with their
melody; the atmosphere is balmy as
in vernal May and pure as only hero
is kuown. The long fringed arms of
tho numerous bunana trees are sway?
ing slowly in the gentle breeze and
motion away oil thought of care.
But little labor is required to place
a family in comfortable condition.
Owing to our position, we can supply
tho Northern markets without com?
petition, and realize vast returns
from merely a few acres. Every in?
ducement will be held out to immi?
grants. Persons desiring a good
home, free of cost, should address
tho Land Agent, of Florida Railroad,
We learn that the proprietors of
thc railroad, with the view of colo?
nizing their lands, have decided to
give alternate lots of tw'cuty, forty
and eighty acres to emigrants who
will settle and make permanent im?
provements on them. This is a move
in the right direction, and, if enrried
out successfully, will be of great
benefit to the State, by introducing a
thrifty and industrious white popula?
tion, as well as add materially to the
prosperity of the road.
Could not the "give-away move?
ment" be carried out advantageously
in our own State?
PARDONED BY THE PRESIDENT. - W.
McMuhan, a native of Greenville
District, who was convicted previous
to tho war, on trial before Judge Ma?
grath, of embezzlement of monejs
from tho post office nt Greenville,
and sentenced to ten years' imprison?
ment, has received an uncondi?
tional pardon from Preside ot John?
son. The prisoner, daring thc war,
effected his escape from jail, but was
recently re-captured and ve-commit
ted to jail iu Greenville, to serve ont
the balance of the term of imprison?
ment for whioh ho was sentenced.
