? Ho wo vcr mon may differ, aa to tho .pro?
per labor required in the Sortth, this
proposition ia universally accepted-that
li devolves upon UR to utilize-to make
the moat of the freed labor in onr midst.

According, to the census of 180 J, the
totabaurobor of slaves ju all tho States
and Territories of the United States was
8,968,760! ,Tfae number in the ten cot?
ton States was 8,030,245. Of these, it 1B
estimated that lesa than 1,200,000 were
employed in the cultivation of cotton.
Daring tho war, tho los? by death in the
nogro population has been estimated at
from DOO,000 to 1,000,000. Hut this is
Only ono ol the onuses that bas operated
to rod ace the number of cotton laborers?
Tho flocking from the cotton fields to
tho villages, towns and cities; the in?
creased mortality amongst those people;
the retiring of the'women from the field;
these causes have contributed further to
diminish tho labor in cotton culture.
Hence, 'lt-1,200,000 negroes were em?
ployed in the cultivation of cotton before
tho war, it ia safe to aluino that not
more than 600,4)00 are now thus employ?
ed.' And assuming 200,000 whites are
engaged ia tho same work, it would fol?
low that the -present foros in the South
cannot afford - an annual yield of more
than 3,400.000 bales of cotton-taking
as an Average th reo bales per baud.
Another conclusion follows from our
figures, viz., this: That tho scarcity of
labor is very marked. Bat this is not
the point to which We are now directing
attention. Our present object is to sug?
gest that three-fourths of the labor upon
which wo depend for the development
of our great staple is African labor.
Snob, being the case, and that labor being
present, available, cheap and trained, the
importance of its encouragement and
utilization must at once appear. Admit
that it is demoralized to some extent
that ic is tampered with-that it is po?
litically used' against us-that it mast
decrease in strength and effioiency-not
the less on ? these accounts, must we
make the most of it. Admit that it
should be supplanted or supplemented.
Admit that European immigrants and
Asiatic reinforcements are imperiously
demanded by the exigences of the case.
Admit all this, and still is it good polioy
to foster and use to the best advantage
the services of the freedmen of tho
This now brings OB to the second
point of oar article, how shall this labor
1. By habitual superintendence. The
time has passed when the farmer or
plauter eau stay in the house and expect
the labor in the fields to go on. As the
sayiDg is, he must take the leading fur?
rows, or, at le.ist, he must be on hand to
urge ou and speed the work.
2. The contracta made between em?
ployer aud employees should be rigidly
3. The wages allowed should be as
liberal os the farmer can afford, and thc
work exacted of the laborers; not for?
getting that tact, fair dealing and good
management can get a good deal of work
oat of men, white as well as black.
4. Tho laborers and their families
should be made os comfortable in their
homes as possible-the houses of the
different families being placed somo dis?
tance apart, and a liberal garden-patch
allowed to each cabin.
We are aware of the many short?
comings attributed ip our colored labor?
ers. We kuow that their political con
dnot has embittered the minds of many
of the Southern proprietors. Yet it is
oar duty to bear and. forbear. Let o
largo share of responsibility be attached
to the demagogues, white, black, foreign
and domestic, who have misled and are
exoiting this ignorant and impressible
class. Not let it be forgotten that it if
seldom wise to adopt any policy that is
based simply on resentment. Hence il
is that, whilst no one can feel more
acutely than ourselves the necessity ol
introducing Northern and European la
bor into our section, we hold fast to the
polioy of educating, improving and util
iziug the colored labor in the South.

hustings. He appears in a new charac?
ter. He makes bis fermai debut at Edge
field Court House, and in their very den
be beards tho Jip o s of Edgefield, and
tells thein to^betoare.1 * Whether "sedi?
tious laxryurs or" incendiar j ?editors''-let
thom bewaro! Tho oyo of tho Ejecutivo
is upon them, und "these men are all
perfectly' known." We'have said that
Mr. Hog? bas made a speech. Let us
inquire what kind of speech this was.
In the first place, the ex-Judge states
that he speaks by authority,-be has con?
versed both with General Grant and
GQV. Scott-what, therefore, be has to
say is by order; "will be, authoritative
because in harmony with, the views of
bath tho State and National Govern?
ments," and, therefore, as the orator
adds, "will be ot interest to ali both
white and colored, not only in this Coun?
ty, but in tko Counties ali along tho Sa?
vannah River"--observe this "all along
the Savannah River." He then goes on
to tell how magnanimous-bow consid??
rate-bow impartial bis Excellency bns
been in bis administration. But all this
has been of no avail, particularly in
Edgefield. Aud, therefore, he is com?
missioned to say that the majesty of the
law must and shall bo vindicated-mar?
tial law will be proclaimed--and then let
"seditious lawyers and incendiary edi?
tors" look out. One thing, the ex-Judge
will say for himself, and that is "if auy
moro of those border ruffians of Georgia
como into this Stato to pillage and out?
rage peaceable citizens, catch them and
bang them to the first pine limb you
But ho wants peace. The mission of
tho Executive organ to Edgefield was
"ono of peace." Particularly does ho
expect ex-Confederates to keep their
parolo and tb keep tho peace. But if
they do not, lot them bear this in mind,
"the power wbiob subdued tho great re?
bellion of all the Southern States can
take caro of Edgefield County." The
orator then in bis discursive and hetero?
geneous style speaks of the magnanimi?
ty of the radical party in its course to?
wards tbe ?South, and in a few lines dis?
poses of tbo Chinese... He "bas seen
thousands of them in California." They
are a miserable class, and "these are tbe
pooplo this wise and progressive Demo?
cratic party hopo to flood tho country
with; first, to crush you out, and, second?
ly, that they may re-establish slavery 1"
The colored mau now votes-that is set?
tled-but be bas another glittering bait
to bold out to the colored people. "Wo
are now moving," says the speaker, "to
other questions nnd measures of vital
importance to the people, and prominent
among theso is the effort and determina?
tion to secure farms for the poor." In a
few years-say four or five-every voter,
white and black, will bo on farms of their
own, and then follows a poetical picture
of an Arcadian stato of society, where
every black mau will sit down under his
own vino and fig-tree, and where "the
sorrows of tho past will be forgotten in
tho joys of the present, and the land
will bud and blossom and bring forth its
fruits for you, and pour ita treasures into
your laps." J Cries of "Amen, thank
One thought more, and tho great
orator closes. The Democrats accuse us
of being in favor of social equality. 3To
meet this, he tells his hearers, in n vein
of humor, bf a proposed bill to be
passed at the next session of the Legis?
lature, of which tho following is the
title: "An Act entitled an Act to amend
an Act entitled tbo Act of God." And
no*w comes tbe peroration. He wishes
his hearers peace and prosperity, ?ud
quoting from another, says:
"Although tboro are scenes which
have been burned into our momories us
with letters of living fire, wo should try
to trout them as visions of a distempered
dream. Groat intellects expand, but
pigmies contract even their limited ideas.
Lot us, therefore, clasp every band ex?
tended in earnest amity. Let us ignore
bygones, and an oblivious veil will cast
a mellowing buo over sections long es?
tranged, and lingering enmities will bo
ns readily obliterated as the waving wheat
buries all traces of gory battle-fields be?
neath a ripe and golden harvest."
Wo have no special comments to make
upon this great effort of Mr. H?ge, who,
after the contest bas been concluded and
the smoke of battle clears away, appears
upon the empty battle-field, raising bis
crimson banner, and brandishing the
avenging sword, and making flattering
promises. * t

ductive appoals, its sophomoric character,
its nerveless sentences, and its transpa?

General Roseucr?ma'8 letter;^ .. '-j ' .
Yielding to noue iu sincere dovolicn
to the D?mocratie representative govern?
ment, of w?ioh I cousider our own the
best model the world has yet seen, at
nearly fifty," with nome knowledge of
men and some experience in governing
them, I am still a Democrat, from study,
conviction and n sentiment of brother?
hood with my fellow-men. I therefore
deem it a duty, under the circumstances
of this nomination, to ruako a few sug?
gestions os to the fundamental princi?
ples which I think ought to underlie
every local Democratic platform. What
of old g.?ve the Democratic party in tho
United States its prestige sud spirit, was
its profound faith in "tin} eapucity of mau
for self-government and progress, uoder
institutions based on the great principles
of liberty, fraternity and equality before
the law, and its .courage in currying tho
logic of its faith into action. Thence
arose that discipline, order and progres?
sive originality which -have marked its
history and made its victorious banner
the symbol of hope to lovers of freedom
at home and abroad,, while in thc nature ?
of things it became the rallying point of
office-seekers and political adventurers,
whoso timid and time-serving counsels
sometimes impaired tho energy-erf its
action, add proveoted the vigorous de?
velopment or its principles. But after a
great civil war which has changed the
face of politics, the instinctive Demo?
cracy of the American peoplo remains,
aud the events of the wur have increased
its confidence in free institutions and in
tho capacity of the peoplo to adapt them
to the exigencies of a national life.
In spite of dreamers after imperialism
or consolidation; in spito of those whoso
only politioal principles are thc apparent
expediencies of the law, who, knowing
that civilized man must have government
are always contriving tricks aud schemes
to make themselves tho favored few
ordained to govern, and bo paid for it;
iu fipite of those who consider it a wenk
aud failing experiment, thc heart of the
great body of car people beats warmly,
and its judgment moves instinct with its
old Democratic feelings and conviction.
Appeals should therefore be made to
these instincts and convictions by assert?
ing the fundamental principles which
ought to govern the future development
of this great and free country, and the
proper times and places announcing such
measures of policy, based on them, as the
exigencies of the nation's lifo and action
may require. The country requires, and
the Democratic party ought ta bo a
party of principle, a party of life,'of
action and of progress. Fossils and
fault-finders do not properly belong to
the party, and if found in it ought to go
on tho retired list, leaving to its oppo?
nents, of all shades and grades, all narrow
and sectional grounds, all monopolies
and favoritism, based on class, creed,
race, color or national origin. The De?
mocratic party of tho United States onght
to hold high the banner of universal free?
dom, impartial justice und equality be?
fore the law of all who live beneath the
flag of our country.
A fact of our history, expressed on our
coat of arms by the words "J? Piuribus
Unum"-many in oue-is, thnt we hove
grown many distinct substantially self
governing communities, under one coun?
try or general sovereignty. To cease to
bo many, or to be one, would interrupt
this law of our historic life.
Tho self-government of the peoplo by
States, and the unity of the natiou, aro
essential laws of our past growth and
life, of which our written Constitution
is but the formal expression, and must
be fundamental with tho national Demo?
cracy, whose policy must be broad enough
and wiso enough to maintain the ono
without weakening tho other. It is tho
combined action of tho two principles
which gives our Democratic representa?
tivo system its power of expansion, and
makes it work to the wonder and admira?
tion of European statesmen and philoso?
phers. Leaving tho right of solf-go
vorument to tho people, and removing
from the States nil the burdens of armies,
navies, lines of fortifications, diplomatic
representatives, coinage, postal system
and that host of offices which subtract
from productivo industry and devours
its products in the States of Europe, it
frees commerco and travel from varying
standards of weights, measures and va?
lues from State tariffs, passports and
f.,/ying otlioi: 1 ism, and provides that thc
citizens cf one State may obtain redress
or payment of claims from those of an?
other without the interminable opera?
tions und d lays of diplomacy by the in?
tervention of courts of law.
Based on these laws of our law and
growth, and repudiating tho doctrine
that "might makes right," American De?
mocracy holds that liberty consists in the
obedience of all to just law; that these
laws should be tho fewest and simplest
possible, leaving tho utmost individual
freedom of thought and action, consist?
ent with equal rights and impartial jus?
tice; and where individual action must
be regulated bylaw, seeking always "the
greatest good to tho greatest number."
This ia the Democracy I believe in,
and to which I am proud to belong.
The New Orleans Times has tho fol?
lowing: "Lost-A President; answers to
the name of Ulysses. HOB a persistent
expression, and is hard of speech. Is
dressed in army uniform, and addicted
to smoking. When last heard of was

A REMINISCENCE OF BYRON'S BOON
COMPANION, CAPTAIN MEDWIN.-The
moral atmosphere in which Byron's on
tire life waa spent 'was for tho most part
very far from pure. A few years ago the
writer of this article, then residing in a
Gorman university town, accidentally
became acquainted with the samo Cap?
tain Medwin who was authority for the
"Dear Duok" commencement of Lady
Byron's lotter-at that time an old man,
decrepit with ago, enfeebled by disease,
and melancholy withal because of the
recent death of un elderly lady with
whom hd lind lived in tlioso relations
of platonic intimacy hallowed by
the mutual attachment of Cowper and
and Mrs. Unwin. A casual acquaintance
with this unhappy man was sufficient to
dissipate the last vestige of that fool
hady admiration which everyone in boy?
hood conceives for the wild lifo led by
Byron and his fellow roues at Nowstend.
Captain Medwin had como of a good
family-being a cousin of Shelley-waa
a tine scholar, having mude the acquaint?
ance of tho classic writers in their own
language and on what is left of their
own soil, und in his day had enjoyed
somo reputation ns a man of letters.
But as I knew him ho could havo been
only thc wreck of what he had been
once. Iiis face bore unmistakable evi?
dence of a mau ill at oase. Ile was
crabbed, fretful, misanthropic, and, I
fancied, jealous of the well-earned repu?
tation of the mon who role in the Eng?
lish realm of letters at tho present time.
Ho ridiculed Tennyson, and spoke disap?
provingly of Bulwer; but complimented
Longfellow, and declared that ho would
rather havo written Poe's "Baven" than
any other poem of the present century.
I know not whether he still survives,
but if he doos not, death has done for
him a more friendly office than was in
the power of friend or relative; it has
soothed a spirit to which a life misspent
had made rest impossible here.

"Such horrid feelings as I experience
no ono can imagine, and I don't know
what it is about; I feel despondent, and
as though something awful was going to
happen." Expressions like these are
constantly escaping from those suffering
from liver disease. If they would only
take Simmons' Liver Regulator, the de?
spondency would be dissipated, the
spirits would bo cheerful, and the body
restored to health. A28 JG
PRETTY WOMEN.-A comparatively few
Ladies monopolize the Beauty as well as
tho attention of Society. This ought
not to be so, but it is; and will be whilo
men aro foolish, and single ont pretty
faces for companions.
This can ali be changed by using Ha?
gan's Magnolia Balm, which gives the
Bloom of Youth and a refined sparkling
Beauty for the Complexion, pleasing,
powforful and natural.
No Lady need complain of a red, tan?
ned, freckled or rustic Complexion who
will invest 75 cents in Hagan's Magnolia
Balm. Its effects are truly wonderful.
To preserve and dress the Hair, use
Lyon's Kathairon. AI7 ?13
A distinguished Methodist minister
and prominent temperance lecturer once
remarked that go where he would, from
ono end of the country to the other, he
hardly ever failed to find PLANTATION
BITTERS, and while he condemned the
practice of using these Bitters too freely,
he eould not conscientiously say that he
would discard them from tho side-board,
for he had himself experienced beneficial
results from their use, and that, from a
tlong aud.close observation, ho was con?
vinced that when used moderately, and
as a medicino exclusively, they were all
that was recommended. At the same
time he warned his hearers not to pull
the cork too often, for they wore far too
pleasant a tonic to trifle with. '
