Some tim? ago* wo referred to tho views
Of Mr. John Stuart Mill, the English
writer, on th|9 wojnah question. We
thought his views iii advocacy of woman's
political rights weak. But ip this ora of
chang? and innovations, no man can say
how distant ie; the time when woman
.suffrage nh&ll^bV.the law of the land;
Certain it is. that if the radical party
find this suffrage necessary to sustain
?arty ascendancy, they will not hesitate
>to seek to establish it. It seems that
"tho woman question" has reached the
halls of Congress and Mr. Julian is the
pioneer of tho movement. This Mr.
Julian proposes a sixteenth amendment,
which is to forbid any State to deprive
any of its citizens ot the right of suf?
frage, by reason of their sex. On this
subject, tho Kew York TPbrWsays:
-"Doubtless, Mr. Jillian's bill will be
killed after the House has discussed it to
some oxtont; but its introduction is only
another evidence of ' the' prominenoo
which the woman question is rapidly
assuming. The agitation of the subject
will succeed to the.anti-alavery agitation,
justasthe latter succeeded the tempe?
rance movement. It is a note-worthy
fact that three, topios, which, moro than
any others, fa*ve engaged the attention
of the present generation of Americans,
have had no diroot connection with reli?
gi?n. T?? .questions whiob. can interest
an entire hatton to-day are not religions,
'but political, ?conomie, or sooial ones.
3So attempt to create a 'No-popery' ex?
citement could succeed either in this
country pr England; and the tone of the
press has lately shown how little interest
our people-have taken. in the discussion
of Mormon peculiarities whioh the bill
abolishing polygamy hus called forth iu
Congress. : Matters of. faith have no
longer tho hold they once had, when c
whole community could be agitated, at
New England waa a century ago, on siiob
purely theological crotchets os 'Hopkiu
sonianism..' Those sohemes which pro?
pose the. improvement of the physical,
sooial, or political condition of mankind
can now alone command the interest oi
arouso the enthusiasm of a population.'

of ;thieJaliiab8o?iug/8nftjeet for ?e
j South waa invited by yourself, and cer?
tainly more than weloomed by me when
conducted in the right spirit. My object
ia reviving this subject in the public
prints wes purely patriotic, aud with no
loyo or fouduesa Xor nowspapor farno or
notoriety. I hone tho correspondent ia
question can puPhis hand over his heart
and say the ?arno. I havo always thought
that whenever any ono intended to give
his arguments on any subject to the pub?
lic, for roviow, that they should have
been first well digested. If your corres?
pondents have undergone this process,
the result has certainly been a flow of
words without the proper modicum of
ideas. I have often heard it said that
when a debater's arguments failed him,
he would then, and not until thou, resort
to tho perversion of the menning of
words and isolated sentences. It is cer?
tainly a singular coincidence, to say the
least of it, that all tho edi tom through?
out the Stato who. have noticed my com?
munications on immigration at all, have
oither commended tbem, or spoken of
? rn, iu the mildest terms, aa worthy at
leu I f consideration. Is it possible
that ibis single individual is bettor ac?
quainted with the matters involved, and
better capable of judging, than all these
gentlemen of the press, who have had
the opportunities of both reading and
reflecting on all that has been published
on this subject since the close of the war?
He accuses me of "gross misrepre?
sentation of his meaning." Well, i gave
my views in regard to the kind'of labor?
ers we both needed- and could procure.
He says : "Our country does not now
need the introduction to a large-extent
of such laborers as contemplated in the
plan." I contend that we do heed them
to a "largo extent" both as laborers BE
well as voters, and hence the logical de?
ductions as stated in the "supplement.'
I suppose he would say in reply, that he
intended those who accepted homestead!
so supply these wants. Suppose w<
could get the class indicated by him, af
well as secure them good titles to theil
homesteads, (which I do not believe,]
they would have their own , farms,' anc
heneo could not be at the command o
the land-owners as laborers ; and th?
numbers introduced would not be sc
gr??t as the plan contemplated by me
and henoe the number of votes less.
He seems to object to the manner it
which I disposed of his relation of om
loss of labor since 1866. I did not thinl
it necessary to comment upon the causei
of the loss of labor to the older South
ern States, for it was so plain to Bei
after the negroes were freed, that it tool
no prophet to foretell it ; the laws o
supply and demand would have answerei
this question. But, really, I saw no ne
oessity for lugging this question into hi
first article, with the view of proving
that we could not "keep our immigran
laborers after importing them." M;
plan for the introduction and distribu
tion of laborers wits intended for tb
adoption of the whole South; and if oar
ried out, would not the West procure ii
proportion to their ability as well as de
mauds ? And would not this fact, whet
applied to all the Southern States, rogu
late both the numbers as well as th
prices of labor ?
When pondering over the results thu
would accrue to tho State if bis sugget
tiona were carried ont, I asked, does h
mean that the planters of the Soutl
should take tho plow-handles aud giv
their waste lands to tho already comfort
able "wJiite men of some means," icc.
I meant by tbis that the supply of laboi
crs would not be sufficient to occup
them in dircctiug or superintending h
borers; and that this, together with th
pecuniary want necessarily consequent
would force this stato of things,
would ask, which wouH develop the re?
sources of and enrich Sooth Carolin
most rapidly: to have hordes of laborer
introduced into tho State, distribute
and managed as indicated in my article!
or to have all the plauters to take th
plow-handles, and each one able to git
good titles lo homesteads, to have one c
more foreigu families settled on his plai
tation, no one of which foreigners kuov
ing how to prepare the land, plant, cu
tivate or harvest auy one of our Soutl
ern products-say cotton, rice, tobacct
sugar cane, or coru ? What do you BUJ
pose would he tho result ? My predii
tion would be universal bankruptcy, au
moro paupors than tho world ever Ba
congregated in tho same space. I d
not object to gentlemen taking tho plov
handles, for I claim to know somethirj
of the manner of guiding them mysel
although there never bas beeu any p
cuniary necessity for it ; but when tl
relative value of a man's labor in diffe
ont capacities is taken into consider
tion, I think the public will hold that
am oorreot. I hope, however, that the co
respondent in question Jtas taken the plot
handles himself, and at tho next annu
fair will give us the results of his labor
Wueh examples we need, and no donl
would induoe others to "go and do lik
wise." I agree with him, that "thero a
hosts of white mou in the South livit
in idleness." "Let them go to work
"Let the planters (those idle, I will say
and their idle sons take the plow-ha
dies." All these golden recommend
tions, however, to tho sons of Carolii
will not interfere with my plan for r
generating the State, and I would b;
him Ood-speed; but, first, be sure yo;
example is good. I know nothing to tl
contrary, not knowing who he ia. D
vid Crocket said, "Be sure you are rigl
then go ahead;" but, first, your cor?
pondent should be sure he is right; tb
go ahead. If he and his son or sons I

His attempt to dispose of the proposi?

ject of immigration to the detriment of j
my plan, becuuse hebronght over a Ger?
man, peasant, who left him, ia simply
puerile, and I will Dot ask space in your
columns to disouss.
And now. Mr. Editor, having said all
I think necessary in regard to the points
brought np by yoar oorrespondeot, I
will beg a little more indulgence, while I
briefly review the history of immigration
as applied to the settlement of the Uni tod
States, from the landing of the first
colonists, under the auspices of the Eng?
lish Government, np to the present time.
The first permanent settlement was com*
menced in May, 1607, at Jamestown, on
the James River, in Virginia. Th? next
was Now York; next Massachusetts; next
New Hampshire; next New Jersey; next
Delaware; next Maryland; next Connec?
ticut; next Rhode Island, and then carno
North and South Carolina. The last j
settled of tho original thirteen States
was Georgia, in 1732. I have mentioned
these settlements in regular rotation, to
show that there was thoo no predilection
for any particular locality; the colouists
mado settlements indiscriminately all
over tho lands claimed by the English
Government. After the United States
Government was established, there seems
to have been no marked change in this
respect until Monroe's administration
1817 to 1825-when five now States were
admitted into the Union, viz: Alabama,
Mississippi, Missouri, Illinois and Maine.
Theo it was that the great question of
slavery, ns applied to the settlement of
the territories, shook tho whole political
fabric of the country, and resulted in
tho adoption of the Missouri compromise '
line. I rom this date the tide of immi?
gration directed itself North and North?
westward. The same inducements were !
held out by the Government tc foreign
settlers to go to Alabama, Mississippi,
Louisiana, and afterwards to Florida and
Texas, ns to Maine, Illinois, and after?
wards Indiana, California, and all the
new territories acquired in consequence
of the Mexican war. Government lands
were only one dollar per acre wherever
found. The question arises, why did
they not come South? Then the negro
was a slave and subordinate to the white
man. It certainly mnst have been in
consequence of the presence of the
negro. Now the negro, by the aid
of the scalawag and carpet-bagger,
is holding the white man nuder po?
litical subordination. If the immi?
grant did not voluntarily come to tho
South, while the former condition of
tliiugs existed, will he voluntarily come
now, with the present abnormal and God
forbidden condition? The uns wer, it
seems, is plain. We must create a
diversion to the Soutli by using means never
heretofore resorted to by the people of the
North. What this shall be, must be de?
termined by the assembled intellect and
experience of the whole South. I have
suggested a plan; if there is any other
better suited to accomplish the ends,
may Heaven smile npoa it, and may it
be adopted from the Potomac to the Kio
One thing we should bear in mind,
and that is, that the area of our country
(more than equal to all Europe and
Russia) ia altogether in disproportion to
the minier of inhabitants-about 40,OOO,
OOO. And that were the prices of lands
what it would be; wore it not for the
largo investments of capitalists in this
kind of property; and that if the labor
question, all over the United State, were
regulated by the laws of supply and de
maud, strictly carried out, we would have
a poor showing for our sharo of those
able to purchase lands.

APPLETON'S CYCLOPAEDIA-LETTER FROM
WM. GILMORE SIMS, ESQ.-Tho follow?

all who aro desirous of supplying them?
selves with a full, convenient and relia?
ble compendium of all human know?
To thc General Agent for the Southern
DEAR SIR : It gives me great pleasure
to fiud you facilitating the circulation of
?Appleton's Cyclopaedia in our Southern
country. Such a work, useful every?
where, is particularly vulnable here, es?
pecially after tho destruction of so many
of our libraries. I cun readily and do
cheerfully bear testimony to the grent
value of the Cyclopaedia of Messrs. Ap?
pleton as being vasily superior to any ex?
tant, whether European or American. Il
comprehends not only all that is really
valuable io all preceding works of thu
olass, but covers n far greater variety ol
subjects and interests, arts, sciences,
letters, biography and history, a vnsl
collection, the accumulated knowledge
.of modern and recent periods to thc
I present dato. lu brief, its body of ma
terial is fully one-third greater, ia mj
estimate, than that of any other similai
work. The editorship was confided tx
the most able hands. The cohort of con
tribntors was singularly strong, anc
what is a speoial recommendation of thii
work to our people, a large proportion Oj
these were bu Southern men, nntives, ant
familiar with all the local subjects of ou
section, with its histories in detail UIH
biographies of its most remarkable men
Having myself been connected by tin
Messrs. Appleton at the inception of thi
work, I had the assurance from then
that the materials of American characte
should be drawn from the most imparti?
and most unquestionable sources of na
thority, that the South should have (lu
justice accorded to its cJiaracter, its histor
and its public men, which before had bee
too commonly denied in similar publice
lions. I myself took an active part i
suggesting to the publishers, not only i
large variety of Southern topics, but o
the same time I indicated to them th
several clues leading them to the prope
parties for the treatment of each seven
subject. I feel assured that the pul
lishers have steadily adhered to thei
original honorable determination to foi
bear all improper, partial, sectional dit
crimination in all the several depar
ments of their work. Bat that is no
before our pablio, and in an examinatio
of its pages it will be found that the
will sufficiently answer for themselves
You will bo able to assist our people i
the examination, and I trust you will b
successful in diffusing generally throagl
out the South one of the most valuub!
by far of all collections of tho kind,
library-a very world of books in itsel
It will supply to thousands the means <
study and knowledge, for which thot
sands of other books would he searche
With due regard, believe me, sir, yoi

The authorities of Covington, Ga.,

ROSKOO.-Tho Norfolk Haily Journal, of
December ll, 18G9, says:
"This medicine ia rapidly gainiug confi?
dence of the people, and the numerous testi?
monials of its virtues, given by practitioners of
medicino, leaves no doubt that it is a safe and
reliable remedy for IMPURITY OF TUE BLOOD,
LIVER DISEASE, Ac."
The last Medical Journal contains an arti?
cle from Prof. R. 8. Newton, M. D., President
or the E Medi-Gollego, city of New York, that
speaks in high terms of its curativo proper?
ties, and gives a apeoial recommendation of
KOBKOO to tho practitioners of medicine.
Thia is, wo believe, the first instance whoro
euch medicines have been officially endorsed
by the Faculty of any of the Medical Colleges,
and reflecta great credit upon the skill of Dr.
Lawrence, its compounder, and also put?
"Koskoo" in the VAN of all other medicines
of the preoent day. F26
