Sunday Morning, June 27. 1869.
A few days ago, we bad an opportu?
nity of reading, hastily, a published lot?
ter from James Lyons, a distinguished
citizen of Virginia-a true son of the
Old Dominion, after the type of her first
progeny. It was in answer to an appli?
cation for him to enter the canvass for
the "conservativo Republican" candi?
date for Governor-Colonel Walker.
We regret the paper has been mislaid.
We would like the people of Carolina to
read the, letter. It comes nearer the
true ring of the golden shield of Virginia,
the shield of 1776 and 1361-65, than any
sound we have heard in three years. It
ia not a war-cry, nor yet a wail. It is
Uko the sigh of the mighty Roman, fall?
ing on the Lybian sands, after the bat?
tle of Pkarsalia, by the .banda of hired
assassins. Mr. Lyons tells Virginians
they may be right to take a carpet-bag?
ger who makes a fair showing of himself,
as a choiee of evils; but warns them of
the cowardice, as well as the impolicy
and danger, of paltering with principles
and the brittle fragments of their lost
It is "expedienoy," "necessity ' and
that vilest and most degrading phrase, of
all-"accepting the situation, which has
put South Carolina under that domina?
tion which now rulos hor-in her Legis?
lature, her Executive, her Judiciary, her
police, her education, and is fast invad?
ing her most sacred socio1 organism."
The filth and stench which now provnils,
from the State House to thc constablo's
box, comes from our eager haste to "ac?
cept tho situation." Mr. Lyons bids thc
hungry politicians fast and vrnit a little
longer. But our politicians would not
fast an hour. They were pinched with
the hunger of four years' abstinence,
which had not been assuaged by four
years of glorious struggle. They were
starving for senatorial, gubernatorial
and judicial feasts, so they "accepted
the situation." But instead of our peo?
ple feeding at the banquet, tho dainty
viands wrere pounced upon by thc buz?
zards of the North, and thc maggots
bred in the rotten bowels of tho State.
The poor carcass of tho State is torn un J
mangled and gobbled up by these foul
vermin, while our own disappointed
would-be Senators, Governors, etc., etc.,
sit, squat on their haunches, peeping
greedily through the cracks of the fences
at the obscene symposium-presided
over by Scott, Moses & Co.-who mean
to polish the last bouc, and then toss the
bare skeleton to the "native reconstrnc
tionists," and invite them to accept the
situation. As /et, it has not been alto?
gether so in Virginia, because Virginia
has preferred to be ruled rather by the
sword than the scum of the conqueror.
But Mr. Lyons warns against tho infec?
tion. The deadly miasma is approach?
ing-lie kuows the term "conservative
Republican" is a delusion and'a suare,
ns well as a politiculabsurJity. He tells
his people, however, if you, the bes?,
wisest, purest Virginians, insist on mak?
ing a struggle for a "conservative Repub?
lican," although I cannot vote-I am not
permitted to vote-I will advise my ne?
gro coachman to vote for Walker.
Tho election conies on the 6th of July,
on a tri-scctcd constitution, that is a
constitution cut into throe parts. Hun
nicut made it; Grant cut it into three
slices with his sword, and, taking it on
the point, he presonts it in "gobs," for
the sake of easier deglutition by "cern
servative Republicans." Ho thusthrusti
it down their throats, as Scott, Moses ?
Co. stui? their loathsome laws down th?
throat of "reconstructed" South Caro
God help the "grand old republic,'
and save her from our evil.
A BAD LOT.-A good many persons tc
whom President Grant's lately appointee
consuls owe money have invoked thi
Government to compel them to pay be
. fore leaving the country, but the Go
vernmont dcolines to interiore. Itdidn'
appoint them for honesty, and it doceu'
requiro them to be honest. In fact, i
good many of thom sought foreign ap
pointmonts os a means of escaping fran
tho annoyance of creditors at home, am
in many cases the Government con
sciously aided them in tho rascally de
sign. Unquestionably those consuls wh
are running away from domestic credil
ors to fill their appointments will ru;
away from their foreign creditors whe
they como back. Tho Government as
sists them as swindlers at homo by pul
ting them in a situation to swindl
abroad. Gan it find no better way f
elevating the national character?
Gen. Ames, commandiug in Mississij.

The following note from a well-known
color? mau, of Knoxville, Tenu., will
explain itself. It is foll of good sense:
KJoxviLLB, Jnne 17. J86?.-7o David
Brown, (colored,) Ahlerman'of this city.
Sm: At a meeting of tho colored people
of Knoxville, last night, in Mt. Zion
Church, you took occasion to refer to
myself and some remarks I had seen
proper to make from the verandah of
the Lamar House, when a number of
people of our race saw proper to tender
to Governor Senter tho compliment of a
serenade. On that occasion, being called
upon, I stated what I believed, and still
believe to be the truth. I was speaking
in the interest and for the benefit of the
colored people. Ever since the colored
man has had his vote in Tennessee, I
hare seen how he has suffered himself to
be led to the polls by selfish men who
have no interest in the black man, but
whose only objeot is to use him as a
stopping-stone from whioh they can
walk into office and power. I have seen
too much of this thing to remain quiet
when I see an effort being made to array
myself and other colored men against
the interests and the rights of the white
people. The white people have given us
tho right to vote at an earlier day than
wo had any roason to expect it. It would
be not only ingratitude], but the worst
policy we could pursue, to aid in keep?
ing tho white people of Tenuesseo from
Hore, in Tennessee, the black man en?
joys all the political rights of the white
mun. He enjoys rights here that he
could not enjoy in Ohio. Let a colored
mau who votes in Knoxville go to Cin?
cinnati, and he will find that ho cannot
vote there. I speak what I kuow, aud I
say it is not houest in a colored man in
Tennessee to uso the liberty that hus been
given him to oppress and disfranchise
thc white pooplo who pay the taxes by
which our State government ?3 sup?
ported. Besides, it is now certain that
thc white pcoplo of the State will soon
bo allowed to vote, and ho is no friend
to tho colored man who tries to array
him against the white race. .1 under?
stand, Mr. Aldorman Brown, that you
spoke very derisively of nie and
my associates. You called us "skinued
headed barbers." Our business is at
least respectable, and let me tell you that
it brings us in contact with the gentle?
men of this community. We listen to
and pay attention to their views, and wo
are satisfied that the white people of
Knoxvillo aro our friends, aud we do not
propose to make enemies of them by
using the ballot to deprive them of rights
we enjoy ourselves.
Now, you make your speeches against
me in tho League, but I will venture to
say that two-thirds of the money you
get for your work (you nra a shoemaker)
is paid to you by the very men you wiall
to keep in political slavery. Tho mean?
est trait in a man's character is ingrati?
tude, and I tell you that I could not look
a whito man in the face if I was trying
to place him lower in society than my?
self. Because you happen to be an Al- I
derman, Mr. Bxowb, don't imagine that
you can drive the colored men of Knox?
ville to make war upon their best friends.
GUS FHINIZY, Barber.
Well may tho Washington radicals cry
aloud, "Save us from our friends!"
Having recently called a meeting for the
purpose of escaping, as far as possible,
the infamy attached to tho negro riots
on election day, they found tho hull
packed with their colored allies, who
triumphantly voted down tho resolu?
tions offered, that "overy man had a
right to vote as he pleased." The
speeches which were loudly cheered
were of the most incendiary character,
one speaker declaring that colored mon
voting at the polls in opposition to thc
wishes of tho colored race ought to bo
killed. This, then, is to be taken as tho
guiding and acknowledged principle ut?
tered at tho seat of government in justi?
fication of deeds endorsed by Forney
and Sumner, oxcused by Greeley and
Phillips, admired by Beecher and But?
ler, and quietly ignored in au acqui?
escing spirit by the Administration.
This, then, is the boasted freedom of
thought and opinion for which tho Pil
gri x Fatheir exiled themselves, and
their descendants over-ran tho South
with fire and svord-freedom to think
as thoy think, to act as they act, and
THE Vms HYPOCRITES!-Tho Augusta
Chronicle thus pays its compliments to
tho Navy Yard bricklayers of Washing?
ton, who refuse to work on the same
scaffold with negroes:
These bricklayers who thus refuse to
permit a negro to "handle bricks and
mortar" on tho same job with themselves
aro nearly all radicals. They vote to
sustain tho radical party, and cheerfully
endorse its efforts to force negroes into
all tho offices in the South, yet they re
fuso to permit the same class to work
with them. Their Caucasian blood re?
volts at the contact, on tho builder's scaf?
fold, with "loil" blacks, yet they think
them marvellously proper persons to sit
in our legislative hall*, to preside in our
courts of justice, to servo on our juries,
to sit on tho same bench with our chil?
dren in the school-house, and with onr
wives and daughters in our churches and
places of amu?emont.
A carpet-bagger, who has a fat office in

The Cotton Oro**-Wno MAkM lt.
The cotton, crop, grown over so widely
extended an area ot country, and pausing
in ita process from seed to shipment
through so jnaoy hands, has yet been
reduced to Agares so exact that few arti?
cles of commerce can be statistically
coneidered with equal precision. The
immense advantage of tue tabular state?
ment in respect of cotton lies, of course,
in its enabling us to moke conjectural
estimates of tue future growth of the
plant likely to fall not far short of the
truth. In this connection, the following
facts from tho New York Post will be
The American cotton crop of last year
has been ascertained as 2,430,893 bales.
The average of weight is 400 pounds to
the bale, which gives an aggregate of
972,357,200 pounds, worth iu ourrenoy
about 8250,000,000. For practical pur?
poses the bale may be set down nt the
value of $100.
Three acres, as a mle, produce ono
hale of cotton. The crop of 1808, upon
this average, required the cultivation of
7,292,679 acres. The land devoted to
cotton before tho war was taken to re
Eresent a money value of $291,707,160;
ut, by reason of the disorganization in?
cident to the war, this value has fallon
to S72.926.790. Tho area of the States
growing cotton, exclusivo of Kentucky,
Missouri and Virginia-in portions of
which the plant may be successfully cul?
tivated-is 426,365,410 acres. This aroa
may bo fairly taken as the possible cot?
ton field of the futuro, setting off the
portions of tho cottou-growing States
proper which cannot be employed for
cotton production against the Kentucky,
Missouri and Virgiuia lauds which may
bo so employed. Tho United Statos
thon have a capacity of cotton produc?
tion of 142,121,813 bales, which at exist?
ing prices in currency would be worth
814,212,000,000-a sum which staggers
Tho crop of last year occupied ouly
about one fifty-ninth part of this vast
area, and brought only about thc same
proportion of the sum just rnoutioncd.
Practically, then, it may bc said that
thero is no limit to the quantity of cot?
ton that may be raised by a combination
of effort on the part of those immediate?
The fall in price of our staples siuee
the war has greatly crippled the cotton
planting interests of India and Egypt.
Thc largest vield in India was that of
1866, when it reached 1,840,648 bules.
This was brought down in 1S68 to 1,420,
576 bales. Egypt produced, in 1865,
404,411 bales; 'iu 186S, 193,035, or not
enough to disturb a calcul?t iou of pro?
bable results hereafter. Both theso
couutries paid the penalty of a too ex?
clusive devotion of their lands to cotton,
under the stimulus of our war, in faniiuo,
which carried off nearly a million oi hu?
man beings. In Smyrna, and other por?
tions of the Levant, where, in 1861, the
fig crop was sacrificed to the growth of
cotton, the culture has been ulmost en?
We see, then, that tho United States
is likely to remain the chief cotton-grow?
er of the world; and we see, also, that its
capacity for increased production de
ponds almost wholly upon the increased
supply of labor. The importance of en?
couraging emigration becomes magnified
in this view to the greatest extent.
BOB TYLER'S ATTEMPT TO HEAD OFF
THE CARPET-BAGGERS.-Bob Tylor, of
Alabama, formerly of Virginia, and Gon
of the late veuerublo ex-president, at?
tempts to head off the carpet-baggers by
getting up a sort of rotten borough ar?
rangement by which prominent persons
in the North friendly to the South can
be sent to Congress as representatives
from Southern districts. Although wo
havo had in this city instances of the
successful operation of this rotten
borough system in tho election of non?
residents to Congress, we hardly think
it advisable for the South to attempt it
at this time. Even if the plan should
succeed, and Northern men with South?
ern sentiments bo sent to Washington as
representatives of tho South, what as?
surance is there that the radical majority
would permit their admission to either
House? On tho whole, we believe it to
be un wiso for tho South to try tho expe?
riment-at any rate at this juncture. In
a year or two, she may be in a condition
to demand instead of craving admittance
to tho halls of national legislation. Let
the South abide her time. It is sure to
come, and no heading-off process like
that proposed by honest Bob, of Alaba?
ma, will precipitate the event.

by confinement in prison, while many of
their companions in crime are permitted
to go carpet-bagging down South, where
they are made Governors and members
of Congress, or appointed to postmaster

esteem it unbearable that they should bo

BAD POLICY.-An enterprising firm in
Washington City advertise a preparation
or compound that will take the kink out
of a negro's wool, nud make his hair
straight. We advise our colored friends
that it would bo bad policy for them to
