Tin- Subject of White lim? lg tut Inn to
tl?? Cotton Slate? C.-i<?|<lere?U?An Im?
Labor and immigration are the two
great questions now agitating tbe publio
mind at the South. The local capital of
the South being far in excess of its pre?
sent supply of labor, tho want has to be
supplied either from the North and from
Europe or from China. In this article,
we propose to consider the chances of
Northern and European immigration to
the cotton States. And first, let us con?
sider what light history throws upon tho
subject. What hitherto hos been tue
courso of immigration in these United
States? We quote from the special cor?
respondent of the New York World.
This well-informed writer says:
"It is matter of record that tho set?
tlers of New England did not set out for
the wilderness of Plymouth Kock, but
meant a more Southerly courso, and
would never have landed where they did
but for tho rascally devices of a fuithlcss
sea captain. Even at that carly day
enough was known of the New World to
know that tho Virginia shore was better
than the vicinage of Cape Cod, and
from that time np the traces of a like
preference aro quite distinct. When thc
Colonies met together for independence,
one could not claim a priority over the
other on tho scoro of slavory, and slavery
consequently had no deterring influences
on the course of immigration. That
course was then Southward, along tho
line of the Atlantic coast. The Indian
power was unbroken in tho North-west,
and few dared to face it. With the In?
dian, then, thus repelling from the West,
and a peaceful country inviting to tho
South, it is not surprising tbut the Eu?
ropean or Northern immigrant bent bis
way in the only safe and pleasant direc?
tion that seemed open to him. In the
debates of the convention which ratified
the Federal Constitution on behalf of
the State of Massachusetts, there are re?
ferences to this course of immigration
nt that early day, and in the convention
debates of Penusylvauia'somo Uko allu?
sions. Still the immigration was but
light, the country was not Over-inviting,
and but little was known about it. In
about tho second decade of the republic
the whole course of immigration was
changed. The Indian power was broken
in the West, and the cotton gin invented
in the Sonth. These almost contempo?
raneous evonts at once put immigration
under reversed conditions. By tho over?
throw of the Indians tho West became a
safe place to go to. and uot that dark
and bloody ground Kentucky had been
made at first. By tho invention of the
cotton gin, and tho consequent invigora?
tion of slavery and rise of the big planta?
tion system, the South became an unde?
sirable pince for men of limited means;
whereas the West had horetoforo re?
pelled, it now invited; whereas tho South
had invited, it now repelled. The course
of immigration changed in accordance
with these new conditions, and for more
than half a century tho tide has been
steadily to the West."
Ho then goes on to suggest tho rea?
sons why the tide may now change to?
wards tho South, and remarks:
"The absorption of tho public lauds
by swindling monopolies, which hold
them at enormous figures, tho crowding
of the Iudiaus, by aggression from tho
Pacific const Eastward, and from the
borders West, into narrow limits where,
from scarcity of provision, they must
necessarily become very troublesome,
the increasing difiiculties of transporta?
tion to a market, whereby cereal crops
are not unfrequently a great loss, aro
some of these considerations which may
perhaps tell unfavorably on tho West.
Concurrent with their appearance is the
restoration of tho old revolutionary in?
ducement in immigration in much of tho
South-good wheat and corn laud in
small farms and reasonable rates, a coun?
try undisturbed by auy possibilities of
savage warfare, about the most whole?
some climate in the Union, and a good
proximity to market."
It does not, however, ho thinks, fol?
low that these advantages are to bo en?
joyed by tho cottou States, to thc samo
extent, as by tho border States. For this
opinion, the following reason is given:
"In the first place, tho signs aro that
the great bulk of the agricultural labor
in the cotton regions is destined to bo,
for many years, ns exclusively negro as
ever before. It is all stuff to say that
the negro is dying out. The birth rate
is not as high with the raco as it was in
slavery, but it reaches a figure that for?
bids any idea of a speedy extinction. It
may be even a question whether, like the
poor, we aro not destined to have him
ever with us; and, whether this bo so or
not, it is a fixed fact that hero he is in
tho far South, with every prospect of
having his numbers swollon by the addi?
tion of those of his tribe now in tho bor?
Whilst, however, this writer is of the
opinion that the cotton States cunnot
expect asy immediato general immigra?
tion from the North and Europe, he ad?
mits that there is a fino opening for cer?
tain classes of immigrants. Ile soys,
and says truly :
"Mechanics aro much needod; miners
are needed; mill-people can do well.
Thc South always bought flue wares in
old time, and, now that it is picking up
again, is ready to buy them still. As
ono instance of what I mean, it is a
comparatively rare thing to seo in
New York a pump-soled boot. Thero is
so little demand for them that their ma?
nufacturo is rather n specialty than an
ordinary branch of boot-making. In
this part of til? world the article is na ed
extensively, and a mechanic who can
maka it well is pretty sore of a good
business in any town. It is tho ?ame
with matters of a greater importance.
Skilled labor baa a good field in the Gulf
States. North Alabama and Georgia in
particular pr?sent a fine field to the
metallurgist. They are seamed all over
with gola and iron. These pursuits do
not present a broad basis for immigra?
tion, there is no interest in fact but agri?
culture that does, but so far as they go,
there is money in thom."
He concludes bis remarks on the sub?
ject by commenting upon tho native in?
crease to the population, upon whioh,
not thinking of or nt all taking tho Chi?
nese into account, ho thinks tho extreme
South must depend.
Wo cannot but conclude that thero is
a good deal of force in tho suggestions
of this writer and thinker. His the?
ory is that the plantation system in
the cotton Statos and tho presence of
tho negro will repel white agricultural
immigrants to a largo extent; but that
inasmuch ns these objections will not ap?
ply to tho border States, we may expect
Virginia, Tounessee and North Carolina
to bo moro rapidly filled up with thc
white class of immigrants. On this
point tho opinion is expressed that as
tho bordor States fill up with whites, thc
blacks will move further South, until
they conccntrnto in tho cotton States,
and thus greatly expand Southern in?
dustry by increasing tho production ol
cottou. With regard to this part ol
tho correspondent's plausible theory,
we havo considerable doubt, ns wo can?
not soy that wo have as yet noticed thc
evidence of this negro immigration South
to which referenco is made. Tho theory
might suit thoso who prefer negro la?
borers, but would not be so agreeable tc
thoso who dislike negro voters. What
now are tho ijrnctical conclusions to bc
drawn from these promises-assuming
them to bo wholly or partly correct?
1. Let not our people count too mud
upon tho immigraut from Europe, to thc
neglect of our nativo resources.
2. Tho Chiueso Bcheme grows mon
3. Tho policy becomes apparent o
our developing manufactures at th(
4. If this great problem of labor lin;
I to bo worked out at homo with nativi
elements, even then let no mau despaii
of tho cause of Southern regeneration
Of ourselves wo can do muoh, and tin
cultivation of tho great virtue of self
reliance ever bears the richest fruits.
D. This matter should bo careful!;
boroo in mind that, although the indica
tions may not point to a rapid white im
migration to the cotton Slates, especial!;
if thc matter bo left to natural iulluences
yet is it our duty and highest policy ti
encourage, and foster and quicken thi
immigration in every possible way. Si
far ns South Carolina is concerned, wi
hopo that this subject may again be con
sidercd when tho State Agricultural am
Mechanical Society meet uext Novem

laud proprietors take tho matter iuto se
rious consideration, and lot us, if possi
ble, inaugurate some now, practical am

George H. Pendleton's nomination aa
Governor of Ohio seems to have aroused
much enthusiasm among the Demooratio
masses in Ohio. The Now York Newt
pays a handsome tributo to Mr. Pendle?

Executive Committee in placing Hr.
Pendleton before the people, it says:
They believed, also, that no name

in tho wisdom of their choice, when hi8
acceptance was flashed over tbo wires nt
tho hearty and enthusiastic responso it
met with in every direction, from the
conservative as well as the Democratic
press. It was ns when at Ivry, and in
full view of ''Tho Army of the League,
with all ita priost-lcd citizens, and all its

Franco caught sight of the white plumo of
Henry of Navarro, and heard him utter

tho popularity of Pendleton with tho
masses of Ohio can doubt no longer,
after tho recent enthusiastic demonstra?
tions they havo hud of its potency, both
in thc Stato Convention and since his
acceptance of tho gubernatorial nomina?
tion. It is a popularity that has sought
tho mau-a popularity that ho bus never
courted, but has ever studied to deserve.
It is a popularity earned not only by the
personal graces and social amenities that
belong to tho object of it in private life,
but on account of tho high order of
talent and profound statesmanship mani?

As Lord Chesterfield once said of Bo?
lingbroke, so might it be said of Pen?
dleton: "His address pre-engages, his
eloqueuco persuades, and his knowledge
informs all who approach him." He
talks as elegantly as ho writes. As n
statesman, his talents aro of tho iirst or?
der, and as an orator, ho presents the
most shiniug figure in the forensic
galaxy of tho country. During all the
exciting period of our civil war, while
recognizing tho invincible logic of
events, he foretold with prophetic dis?
tinctness tho terriblo evils that would
wait upen its bloody footsteps. He dis?
cerned with unerring sagacity, and ex?
posed in Congress, the stupendous finan?

tion, and portrayed with the oloquouce
of inspiration the lamentable cons??
quences of embodying them in tho legis?

which we are every hour feeling tho re?

mudo upon tho liberties of tho person
aud of the press in those dark days of
despotism, his eloquent voice rang the
loudest aud boldest in denunciation of
tho perpetrators. He fearlessly defied
the tyrauuy that was striking down with
its gauntleted hand the guaranteed rights
of American citizens; and in his famous
speech on tho habeas corpus Act in Con?
gress, most eloquently defeuded that
great magna charla of tho liberties ol

earnest attention given to this speech by
his opponents, who sat spell-bound be?

QOt applaud the notion of tho Democrat?
Ia Virginia and> Ton nette. There, it
says, it was the Democracy stooping to
conquer-a par'** for time and not for
eternity-a patty formed to win a victory
and not to bold a citadel.
The Times makes t w > mistakes in ns
many lines. Our Democracy is rather
young than old, and we havo expressed
no disapproval of the courso adopted in
Virginia and Tennessee. As to point
No. 2, we aro disposed to let Virginians
decido what is boat for Virginia. If in
the spirit of thoir own Stonewall Jack?
son they deem it wise to make n flunk
movement, we know very well where the
Virginian column will bo found when
the fight is made between radicalism and
anti-radicalism. As to point No. 1, we
have t'ds to soy: Wo hold that tho De?
mocratic theory of the Government is
right. Wc believe earnestly in tho su?
periority aud permanence of Democratic
institutions. As the Baltimore Sun says,
"whether they ara the best or net, they
are tho ouly institutions practicable in
this country. A pinchbeck monarchy or
brummagem aristocracy will scarcely
flourish on American soil, and wo have
neither tho materials nor the traditions
out of which to construct any other.
Tho form of government remaining sub?
stantially the same, it follows that the
principles which underlie its constitution,
aud which should goveru its administra?
tion, must also continue unchanged.
The questions requiring the application
of those principles will vary from gone
ration to generation, and from year to
year. These ure tho issues o? the day
and tho hour. To confouuol principles
with issues is a fatal mistake. lu adher?
ing inflexibly to principles, but only ad?
dressing itself to those issues which are
real and tangible, aud have a living and
present value, lies tho vitality of a party."
This now expresses our idea. The
principles of the Democratic party,
rightly understood, however old, are as
sound as ever. But to make the party
instinct with life and energy, it must
apply those principles to tho living,
practical questions of thc hour, "not

The WorH and the Times, of New
York, are discussing a question of news*
paper ?tiquette. Tue World oban ced to
allude to Mr. Bigelow, as editor of tho
j'imes, whereupon the Twite* calls tho
World to order for violating the imper?
sonality of journalism. Both are right,
and yet both are wrong.
The most rigid impersonality should
be exacted of writers using the word
"we," which is plural as well os imper?
sonal. It does not refer to the editor or
the writer, but to the andiene?, great or
small, which tho paper is supposed to
represent. Hence its impressiveness.
If it referred to only one man, and were
eveu simply o modest way of saying "I,"
it would be no better than tho first per?
In other respects newspaper writers
and editors ure ns other men, and should
bo so treated by the newspapers to which
they bolong and tho press at large. If
they make speeches, or write books, or
run for oflico tho snmo rule should be
applied to them by their colleagues as
they themselves would apply to lawyers
anil doctors who make speeches, write
books aud run for otfice. In a word,
that is impersonal which blends the
journalist with thc people, giving him
I neither more nor less thau his distinctive
I merits entitle him to receive at thc
! bands of that power which represents
! not the peculiarities of one person, but
the opinions and sentiments of great
masses. Otherwise the preiss would be
a sort of intellectual monastery for tho
reception of unaspiring literary and po?
litical genius; or else it would impose on
its threshold such a disadvantage, re?
quiring a total ignoring of individual
identity on the part of its followers, that
no man of ambition, which is generally
found allied to capacity, would volunta?
rily enter it.
Xor could thia rule be made to work
very well. There is no reason why a l
man's connection with the press should
impair his talents for oratory, for poetry,
for music, for political business. On the
contrary, there is a tendeuc}" in newspa?
per work to develop a man's genius
whatever it may happen to be. He is
accordingly very sure to lind occasion to
appear in his own persou. lu doing so,
he does uot appear ns un editor, but as a
speaker, or poet, or politician, or com?
poser, using his proper style and title,

principles will savo the public and the

and uot a little absurd misconception.

"As a picture of any phase of Eng?

"Its real worth is in tho powerful de?

called to tho following advertisements,
published the first timo this morning:
Mrs. A. Chapman-School Notice.
Ursuline Instituto, Vallo Crucis.
"Where is Drake S. T. 1860 X?" We
have heard this question asked many
times, aud for all wo know fora year past
ho might be dead. Recently, in New
York, wo called at his Laboratory in
Liberty street, nnd there found this gen?
tleman barricaded behind a tremendous
pile of boxes, distributing funds to a
Sunday School Committee. Our busi?
ness was to secure au advertisement. He
said: "My dear sir, what is the use of
advertising the Plantation Bitters? They
sell better now than when I advertised
at such enormous expense, and now I
have not made a contract for a year. I
have all this amount to give to the poor.
To satisfy the press, however, who have
always been my friends, I think I will
give you a little something to do again,
for I have improved the Bitters greatly,
and it may be well to have you let the
people know it." And so he ran on in a
bappy, cordial, appreciative manner,
showing us tho wonders of his place and
the cords of certificates. Everything is
on a magnificent scale, and is done with
neatness and promptness. While there
we saw at least forty orders come in for
these celebrated Bitters. Cases were be?
ing shipped to the four corners of the
world. Drake is not dead, nor his Bit?
ters either.-Exchange paper.
MAGNOLIA WATER.-Superior to the
best imported German Cologne, and sold
at half the price. S4i3
BE BEAUTIFUL.-If you desire beauty
you should use Hagan's Magnolia Balm.
It gives a soft, refined, satin-like tex?
ture to the Complexion, removes Rough?
ness, Redness, Blotches, Sunburn, Tan,
AC, and adda n tinge of Pearly Bloom to
tho plainest features. It brings the
Bloom of Youth to the fading cheek and
changes tho rusti? Country Girl into a
Fashionable City Bello.
In tho uso of tho Magnolia Balm lies
tho trne secret of Beauty. No Lady need
complain of ber Complexion who will
invest 75 cents in this delightful article.
Lyon's Kathairon is thc best hair
dressing in uso. S4.tl3
DON'T RE DISCOURAGED.-If you have
dyspepsia or any disenso of tho liver re?
collect it was contracted nome time ago,
and has been affecting you piobably for
years. You cannot, therefore, expect to
got well by ono dose, or in one day. It
has taken a long timo to confirm your
disease, and if you will just take one
tenth of tho time in trying to get well,
(by using Simmons' Liver Regulator,)
you will have cause to bless tho day you
heard of it. Try it; keep trying it, and
be well. S4?3
