Vii? Colton Empire oS ?Ike South.
Imperium in Imperio.
Ol the cotton belt, extending from the
Atlantic to the Bio Grande end from the
Ohio to the Golf of Mexico, end repre?
senting every variety of soil end climate,
is has been well said that "the sun of
heaven shines not on a land move-varied
in soil, climate and production, or hotter
fitted for tho halli tnt inn of min," And
btvo our readers over considered the ex?
tent of this cotton empire? Adding
Missouri and Virginie to the eotton
States proper-North Caroline, South
Carolins, Florida, Georgie, Al?beme,
Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas
and Tennessee-we have a territory of
more than 800,000 square miles-"almost
a? largo as the . aggregate area of Great
Britain, France, Prussia, Austria and
Italy." This ie imperium in imperio. It
is to this greet empire, with its golden
staples, that wo would invite the Eu?
ropean immigrant. If the continent of
Europe.wants cheap cotton and more of
it, let it send its immigrants to these rich
lande. If the European will not oome,
we presume the Chinamen will. Wo
prefer the European immigrant. He will
be welcomed. The harvest is ripe for
the reaper. Who will come?
Political Organization lu South Caro?
We observe that more than one nf the
Georgia papers ard concerning them?
selves not a little about thepolitioal situ?
ation here, audourEdgefieldcotemporary
echoes the cry for needed organization;
and at the same time acknowledges tho
absence of anything like Democratic
co-operation in its County. In reply to
these suggestions, we have to say, as the
result of our deliberate judgment, that
the time has not yet come for act ive po?
litical movements. At the same time,
we believe that the forces remain united
and faithful, end when the proper time
shall arrive, we feel that there will be no
difficulty in bringing into the field the
conservative voters of the State. At this
time, and until we approach tho period
of the next general eleotious in this
State, let work be the controlling motto;
lot industrial development commend the
sympathy or the services of every good
citizen. With wealth come power and
influence; and those who would redeem
this State from the rule that now afiiicts
it, must march under banners bearing
industrial as well as political devices. -
Preserving our political fidelity aud per?
sonal, integrity, let ns now look chiefly
to material results, and speed the plow,
the loom and the anvil. At the same
time, let us not be unmindful of the re?
forms demanded in our public affairs.
At the right time, THE PHONIX will not
be slow to do its part in sounding the
political tocsin, or in indicating the me?
thod by which, in its opinion, the con?
servatism of the State may best bc ena?
bled to Keize the reina of rule from the
inefficient and corrupt and extravagant
bands that now hold them. Let radical?
ism, for the present, do its work. It
will do some people good to taste its bit?
ter fruits. Let all its extravagances and
?outrages und unequal taxation be care?
fully noted; and then, when tho period
shall roll round for the public servants
to be called iuto judgment before tho
popular tribunal, let the storm arise to
sweep away the motley crew that now
man our ship of State.
Tho Wiuusboro News, ot. the 17th,
states that it regards this as a fixed faet,
to wit: that we have now a Government,
both State and national, of tho majority
-whose will is law, and that its efforts?
therefore, will be to make that majority
as wise and virtuous as possible, lt pro?
poses to put the majority at once to
school, and the first lesson that it wants
to teach the Republican party, is to have
said party adopt an educational test in
the matter of sulTrago. Tho advice of
the News is good, but we fear that it does
not yet command the confidence of its
new alliance sufficiently to have its coun?
sel accepted. Alluding to this new form
of government, which the News is con?
strained to accept, it claims that said
government, "wisely and virtuously ad?
ministered, has all tho advantages of an
itu men > concentration of power and an
irresistible sweep of authority." The
difficulty is that it will have all this,
whether "wisely and virtuously adminis?
tered" or the reverse. Old Mr. Trapier,
of Georgetown, was in the habit of say?
ing, years ago, that wo would never have
things right in this country until tho
Emperor should come to live in George?
town. As between tho go vorn men t of
the News and tho empire of Mr. Trapier,
we prefer tho latter.

Since I have resided here I have been
surprised to learn how much Baltimore
has done for the destitute people of the
South, and what she is still doing. Here
let me state a few faots to show what oho
has doue: In money distributed since
the olose of the war, no less than $1,000,
000. She now bas two institutions of
learning for the children of the South,
besides a regular fund for the education
of children in the South; two deposi?
tories, where $31,000 worth of work nave
been given out in the past two years to
dependent ladies of the South. number?
ing 500 on their list at present, and still
in successful operation. Many of the
private schools take ohildren and educate
them free, to say nothing about tho many
hundred private contributions by her
people. Will any one say she has not
done a good part by tho destitute of her
sister States. I trow not.- Then let the
Southern people show their gratitude by
patronizing her. Who else has rendered
assistance to the South, save that great
philanthropist, Mr. Peabody, whose
name and deeds must ever live io the
hearts of a grateful people?
There is oue thing which has surprised
mo-that is to see how few of tho mer?
chants of the Southern States stop in
Baltimoro to make their purchases, when
I have been informed by some of the
Virginia merchants that they have tried
both tho Northern cities and Baltimore,
and they have found that they eau do ns
well hero, and now give Baltimore the
preference; why not, then, bestow your
patronage on those whose feelings and
sympathies have always been with th?
South, instead of on tho*3e who have
and are still oppressing, and gloat in hu?
miliating you; and why desert your best
friends for those who manifest no inte?
rest in you, save to lurther their own
You may hear some say there should
be no North, no South, but one common
country; but tell me if this vast country
I is not already divided into sections, and
ouch studying ber own interest and
having their great commercial mart?
The East has her Boston; the North her
New York; tho North-west her Chicago;
tho West ber St. Louis; then why not
the South have her chief city and com?
mercial mart-and no -city possesses
greater advantages than Baltimoro. If
thc people of tho South would take a
pride in her as the other sections have
in theirs, she would become second to
uonc. Besides, it is the true policy of
the South to concentrate her trade within
her own limits; and the sooner she takes
this step tho better for ber, and the
sooner will sho be let alono to enjoy her
rights. Who, I ask, bas brought this
calamity upou you and on me? Is it
not those who you have in times past
and are still bestowing your patronage,
and sending the products of your fertile
country iuto their coffers, only to
strengthen them the more, that they may
rivet the shackles which now biud you
in worse than slavery tighter than ever?
In view of all these facts staring you in
the face, ask yourselves tho question if
this is not the case; then if you decide
tho question in your minds, make the
resolve to study your own interest and
the section to which you belong, and
cling to those who have ever proven
t your friends in prosperity and adversity.
I If Baltimore and the other Southern
cities cauuot meet all your demands,
they can furnish you with vessels; they
now havo their lines of steamers plying j

And now, a word to you, ladies of tho
South. Admonish your husbands and
brothers to deal with tho90 who havo

share tho same fate that has befallen you.
It is in your power^o exert an.iu?ucnce
that will be felt. "You have done and

Now, lot your notions ia the past .stimu?

are still doing so much for you and thc

South can rise and say, God bless tho
ladies of Baltimore, for they have not
only clothed and fed, but aro now edu?

of kindness be lost sight of and forgot?

As I am not a merchant, und have no
personal interest savo the welfare of the
South, I leavo this subject for the pre?

and you must bo tho judge if I have
over studied your interest in tho past.

PABTY NOMENCLATURE.-Judge Dent,
of Mississippi, in the course of e corree
pondenco with the President, has hit the
nail on the head in characterising the
radicals of tho Sumner-Butler wing es
"Bitter-Enders." They wish to see the
South drain tho cup of oppression and
humiliation to the dregs and eschew all
idea of peace; while the "Liberals," asl
they are called in Tennessee, are for end
it'g the war and guaranteeing equal
rights to all. "Let us have peac3,"
though tho President seems to have sud?
denly jrone over to thc war side.
A NOBTHERN LETTER WRITER'S OPINION
OF THE MAN AND BROTHER.-"Our own
correspondent" of the New York Tri?
bune, writing to that paper from Colum?
bia, S. C., where he is nt present on
missionary service in behalf of the "God
and morality radical party," thus speaks
of the "annoiuted." He says:
Tho fact is, and it is a melancholy ODO
for us who desire good for the colored
race, that the negro is so utterly the
slave of bia passions, and so utterly des?
titute of judgment and foresight, that
no calculation can be made upon him
no foresight can predict what he will do
to-morrow. He may turn next to stab
the white Democrat, or the white Re?
publican, or the black Democrat, or the
white carpet-bagger, irrespective of his
politics. He can forget race, blood, po?
litics, oaths of leagues, religion, his pro?
mise-anything and everything-under
some temporary excitement. He wants
the stability to act with consistency; and
this comes of the character of his brain,
not of the color of his skin.
IMPORTS AND EXPORTS.-Exclusive of
specie, the United States' have imported
in the eleven months onding May 31st,
1869, $379,279,245 in merchandize and
exported 3261,237.031 in both foreign
and domestic produco; showing a defi?
ciency of $117,992,214, or nearly $118,
000,000. To pey this, says the Jourr.alof
Commerce, $51,320,353 have been sent in
specie, but os $18,115,112 came ia from
other ports merely to land here and go
out again, only $36,205,241 of it were
available toward -discharging the debt.
This left $81,786,973 to be paid for iu
our bonds, which is no 'payment at all,
but merely the funding of tho debt.
This is for eleven months, so that for tho'
year our deficiency in payments of all
kinds will be nearly or quite $94,000,000.
And yet one of our contemporaries, in
the face of such exhibit, sneers at our
cautious, and boasts that the country "is
not ruined yet !" How long will it take
us to reach that goal at this rate ? The
abstract for twelve months has just been
received from Washington. The total
imports of all descriptions in gold value
exceed the toted exports of all descrip?
tions $93,792,609 by the officiul returns.
About 69 per cent, of our imports, 67
per cent, of our exports and 39 per cent,
of our re-exports, or 67 per cent, of the
aggrogate, was transported by foreign
DEATH OF MARSHAL NEIL.-A cable
despatch from Paris announces the death
of Marshal Adolphe Neil, ono of tho
most prominent military men and states?
men of France. Marshal Neil was born I
iu Muret in 1802. He entered the Poly?
technic School in Paris in 1821, and the
Military Academy of Metz in 1823, and
commenced his military career in 1825
as n second lieutenant ot engineers. In
1826-7 ho distinguished himself in the
expedition against Constantine, in Al?
geria, and was promoted October 25,
1837, to command the corps of engineers
in that province. On: Iiis return to
Franco ho gained distinction as a mili?
tary engineer, and was appointed colonel
in 1840. In 1849 he accompanied Gen.
Valiant, iu an expedition to Rome. He j
became general of division in 1853, com?
manded in 1854 the siege operations
against Bomarsun, and in 1855 was ap?
pointed adjutant of Napoleon III, and
was employed in tho seigo of Sebastopol.
In 1857 ho became a member of the
French Senate; in 1860 he took a promi?
nent part in the Italian campaign, and de?
cided by the skillful operation of the
artillery under his command tho victory
of Solferino, after which he was made a
Marshal of France.
Tho Western States uro just as much
interested in the project of Chinese
emigration as tho South. By it, they
expect to moko themselves independent
, of the Eastern manufacturers, and be
I come disenthralled from tho tyranny of
j trade organizations. The entire radical
press at tho West, with but one or two
I trifling exceptions, writes in support of
j this new industrial movement. Wo need
not express our gratification at this
unity, as tho South and West will bo
powerful enough to successfully resist
any measures adopted by the Eastern
monopolists to throw obstacles in tho
way of the now emigration. It is a bit?
ter pill for the New England radicals,
but they must swallow it.

how soon the North-west will overpower
and make them tributary to the giant
power arising Wost of the Alleghenies.
Il Shows that in 1840, Ohio, Indiana,
luinois, Michigan and Missouri had
thirty-two members of Congress, and
that in 1870, with Iowa, Wisconsin,
Minnesota, Kansas and Nebraska, sicoe
added,, there will be .eighty-three mem?

the six New England States had thirty
eight members, bnt in 1870 will have
bnt twenty-two-a loss of sixteen. In
1840, the Middle States and Maryland
had eighty-one, and in 1870 will have
but sixty-four-a loss of seventeen. Ac?
cording to this exhibit, the Eastern and
Middle States in 1840 had a majority of
eigthty-seven over the West, but accord?
ing to the next census will have but
three majority. By nddingmKentucky to
the West, where that journal thinks it
prcporly belongs, that section will havo
ninety-one Representatives to pit against
the eighty-six from the Atlantic States.
After the census of 1870, tho next House
of Representatives elected will contain
more than one-third from the West,
and, united to the South-west, it says,
"will givo us a olear majority in that
body, as well os of Presidential elec?
tors." Besides this, tho South will
make a gain of thirteen members on thc
colored people-a very sensible increase
to her political strength. The next

These facts and deductions will look
quite alarming, no doubt, to tho politi?
cians of tho older States down East, but
it is not quite certuin that the Southern
States, already taught self-support and
reliance, will join hands with the North?
west upon nil questions of Government
polity or even upon one. They may uso
their power selfishly for their own sec?
tion, and doubtless will. Then, agaiu,
thero is a considerable power on tho Pa?
cific slope which is rapidly enlarging,
and that power will not have very much
in common with either the Atlantic sea?
board or the Mississippi Valley. Besides
this, the great West and North-west are
so large, and so diversified, one way and
another, that the complication of inte?
rests and ambitions will hardly ever per?
mit their representatives to unite against
the welfare of the older States.

A SUCCESSFUL CAREER.-In tho early
rush to California, a poor boy named
Charles Crocker, crossed tho Missouri
with an ox team st Omaha, on his toil?
some overland journey to the new gold
regions. Nineteen years afterward to a
day, he arrived at Omaha on bis first re?
turn visit to his old Eastern home. He
came accompanied by his family, in his
own special car, for ho is now Superin?
tendent of the Central Pacifio Railroad,
and every mile of-it has been built under
his supervision. He may well feel an
honorable pride in the groat work with
which ho has been so closely identified.

An explorer named Cameron is confi?
dent that there exists, in a remote part
of Borneo, a race of men with tails, and
he is going on an expedition to investi?
gate the matter. He also states, confi?
dently, that far away in tho interior of
Africa a similar race of men is known to
exist. Moro than twenty years ago, Du
Couret, a well known French traveler in
Africa discovered, in a central part of
that continent, tho existence of a raco
called the Niam-Niams, or men with
tails; and the evidences laid by him be?
fore certain scientific bodies in Paris
wero deemed to be conclusivo on the
subject. It will bo interesting to trace
tho further developments of this matter,
since tho discovery of tho link between
man and brute will tend to reinforce the
Darwinian theory of species, besides

POLICE INTELLIGENCE.-Richard John?
son, (colored,) who resided in Columbia
%boot six months ogo, but has recently
been traveling ?bout the Southern
States, was overhauled by Policeman
Gurley, a day or two siace, at the re?
quest of Mr. TX. Mayrant. Cause-John?
son was discovered with a pair cf pants
which had been stolen from Mr. May
rant's res i don co. After a little gentle
persuasion, the' prisoner was carried to
tho lock-up. Chief Radcliffe took bim
in tow, and after considerable cross
questioning, succeeded in obtaining a
partial confession from Johnson. Upon
searching his place of abode, artioles
were found which had been stolen from
the residences of Messrs. Waring, Alex?
ander, Mayrant, Guignard and Mrs.
Loomis. In ono of tho dwellings visited,
the robber lit a fire and made prepara?
tions for cooking supper, but was dis?
turbed and frightened away by a colored
woman. Johnson says he has no assist?
ants-doesn't want any partners; and
circumstances tend to the belief that his
statement is true.
The colored boy who was arrested on
tho charge of ribbing the money drawer
of Mr. Volger, has made an affidavit
that he was not the robber-but that
he received a share of tho profits.
WHAT CAN HE DONE IN SOUTH CARO?
LINA.-We paid a visit, yesterday, to the
model farm of Mr. James M. Crawford,
iu Cotton Town, near Columbia, and in?
spected his cotton field-which, in size
and quantity of the bolls, far exceeds
anything we have ever seen or heard of
-the famous Georgia brag acre, of
which we published au account, a day or
two ago, not excepted. An old and ex?
perienced Mississippi cotton planter
made an examination and calculation of
the crop on ono acre os it stands in the
field-the "brag" lot-with tho follow?
ing result: He counted three stalks,
taken indiscriminately from this patch,
which averaged 300 bolls to tho stalk;
52 rows to the acre; 70 stalks to tho row;
allowing 100 bolls to the pound, shows
10,920 pounds to the acre-provided, of
course, that it matures. Some of the
stalks had over 500 bolls. Mr. Crawford
has another most excellent lot of four
flares, the smallest stalk counted in it
containing 86 bolls; another 156, and
still another 358-on average of 200
bolls to the stalk. The entire crop was
grown from tho well-known Dixon seed.
Doubters can examine this cotton at any
time. The ordinary stable manure was
principally used, and the soil is far from
being the best in this vicinity. Thorough
tillage did the business. Mr. Crawford
declares that a man who cannot make
good crops in Richland, had better lay
aside agricultural implements.

the purest and best in the world-are
well known. Not a single case of Dys?
pepsia, Fever and Ague, Consumption,
or any such disease can be found on this
Island, (except of invalids, who come
here for their health, and they are almost
always cured.) Combined with Calisaya
Bark, Cascarilla, and other important
ingredients, this Rum becomee PLANTA
I TioN BITTERS; and surely no finer Tonic
and general Family Remedy was ever
seen. The combination of these Bitters
was first discovered here many years
ago, and all the Natives swear by PLAN?
TATION BITTERS, and say "there is no?
thing like it." Judging by the robust
health of the witnesses, I am certain
their testimony is true. * * R. S. T.

PRETTY WOMEN.-A comparatively few
Ladies monopolize the Beauty as well as
the attention of Society. This ought
not to be so, but it is; and will be while

gan's Magnolia Balm, which gives the
Bloom of Youth and a relined sparkling
Beauty for tho Complexion, pleasing,
powferful and natural.
No Lady need complain of a red, tan?
ned, .freckled or rusti? Complexion who
will invest 70 cents in Hagan's Magnolia
Balm. Its effects are truly wonderful.
