.'Th* Untiled South."
The great need of tho Southern
people now is confidence in their pre?
sent and future. It is a remarkable
fact that people abroad, and especinl
1 y in the Nortb, have more faith in
the future prospects of this section
than the people who livo 111 iL. Our
own people have not recovered from
the gloom of crushing defeat in the
late war, and the thicker gloom
caused by the cruel policy of tho do?
minant political party among our
conquerors. But it is unto that, with
the eyo of reason, they should pierce
this moral mist and behold tho bright
Holds of effort and prosperity that lie
before them. "lin i ned," as men will
persist in saying that wo are, our
country, its magnificent resources
and ita brilliant future, arc the admi?
ration of strangers and the envy of
our fanatical enemies. Mr. Treze
vaut, in a stirring and searching let?
ter to tho Memphis Appeal, puts this
in a strong and clear light, when ho
tells ns tho gold value of tho present
crop of cotton is equal to nearly
three times tho product of tho Cali?
fornia mines for tho last eighteen
years, and that its 2,000,000 of bales
will bring within ?550,000,000 of what
a crop of 5,000,000 brought before
the war. This is splendid "ruin."
THE PBESENT SESSION OF CONOKESS.
-Tho rolls of tho Houso of Repre?
sentatives which assembled ou yes?
terday, will bear tho names of 223
Representatives, including the dele?
gations from Georgia and Alabama.
Four members of the present Houso
have died, namely: Messrs. Finney
and Stevens, of Pennsylvania, Manu,
of Louisiana, and Hinds, of Arkan?
sas. The death of neither of these
has been announced officially in the
House, and ono of the first features
of tho present session will be the
passage of tho customary resolution:?
and tho delivery of tho usual ad?
dresses by the colleagues of thc de?
ceased members. Mr. Finney was
ablo to occupy his seat only about u
week. Ho is succeeded by S. Newton
Petti6. Mr. Stevens is succeeded by
C. J. Dickey, and either Jones or
Menard will succeed Mr. Mann, thc
election beiug contested. Menard is
a colored man. Thc Senate rolls
will contain tho names of 00 mem?
bers, including Messrs. Hill aud
Miller, of Georgia, and Messrs. Silen?
cer aud Warner, of Alabama; beiug
an increase of 13 since the vote on
impeachment. Of this number, the
terms of office of 22 will expire on
the 4th of March next, namely:
Messrs. Bayard, of Delaware, Bucka?
low, of Pennsylvania, Chandler, of
Michigan, Couness, of California,
Dixon, of Connecticut, Doolittle, of
Wisconsin, Edmunds, of Vermont,
(re-ele?"t?d,) Frolinghuysen, of New

Massachusetts, Tiptou, of Nebraska,

The Nashville Banner has a long
article making a full oxpo.se of tho
swindling operations of the Southern
Fire Insurance Company. It appears
that the charter was drawn up and
fraudulently run through the Ten?
nessee Legislature by ono Berry, who
executed bia guarantee notes for
8140,000, when ho is not worth 140
cents, fraudulently elected directors,
aud absorbed nearly thc whole
amount of thc cash premiums paid
in by policy-holders for salaries for
various officers,all of whom, in reality,
ht; himself personated. Thc operations
ol this individual were singularly
successful; agents were appointed in
all the Southern States, and being
popular and responsible men in their
various sections, they met with gen?
eral success. No blaine of complicity
can attach to any D! them, as their
representations to policy-holders
wore all made upon sworn statements
of tho president and directors of tho
company, (bogus as they now appear
to have been.) Tho actual loss to
policy-holders cannot yet bo estimat?
ed; probably above 8200,001?, in eash,
have been paid in on policies. All
nott s given will of COUIHO bc void.

Qur people are felicitous over tho
I consummation of the railroad connec?
tion between Selma and Charleston,
under the mistaken impression that
the through shipments to New York
will be prodnctive of muon benefit to
tho South. I hope that they will
soon be convinced of their orror,
although, it is to be feared, not be?
fore Now York bas sucked the blood
of our South, as a spider does a fly.
This policy, instead of enriching our
people, is keeping them impoverish?
ed, and pouring all the benefits of
our immense crops iuto thc hip of
Cotton is thc only product of tho
United States equal in effects upon
the world to gold, and our people do
not realize tho immense power that
nature has given them, and which
they may wield to such advantage.
Secretary McCullough, in his official
report of the Fall of 18GG, stated,
that "if it had not been for the
receipts of cottou from the South
during tho past year, tho United
States would have been bankrupt."
It was tho staple of the South which
kept this Government propped up,
when still staggering from the effects
of our war. Tho Northern mer?
chants realize its value, and have
shown great intelligence in drawing
our srapic direct from our interior to
New York, there to dispenso thc be?
nefits which should belong to our
If thc cotton was sent to thc ports
of the South to bo Bold, there would
accrue all thc incidental charges upon
it; there would all the money bo ne?
gotiated and circulated; there would
tho Northern buyers themselves re?
sort, and by competition raise prices
abovo tho comparative rato now ob?
tained in Now York under thc pre?
sent system. Our factors would do
a better business, and thus bo ena?
bled to pivo more aid to the planters
themselves. As bas been well ex?
pressed, our planters now ure but
little, moro than overseers for Now
York. Tho receipts of cotton at
Charleston now reach 50,000 bales;
ont of which -13,000 have gone to tho
North, and but 0,500 to Europe.
Tho result of tho shrewd through
system, and the result of this fact is:
that New York bas become a cotton
port, ut our expense; there European
purchasers buy their supply; and
there the shipping of the world resort
The crop of this year will bring
into tho South about two hundred
millions of gold or its equivalent, nt
least three-fourths of which will first
circulate in tho Northern ports, and
to those give tho benelit of that
amount of money-a benefit which it
would be much ttl the ultimate inte?
rest of planters to give to their
Southern ports. One hundred und
fifty millions of gold eau bo used to
the amount of three times its amount
in currency, say four bun Ired and
fifty millions currency, aili of which
can be made to dispense its benefit
at home. Instead of which, the
South will receive for her cotton

millions currency; or, to sum thc
whole, she will give lo the North tuc
