Immigration and Direct Trade.
These subjects, intimately connected
as they are, were conaidered together at
the late Charleston Convention. We de?
sire io commend to the attention of the
public the propositions on these points
adopted by the convention. The follow?
ing were considered practical measures,
and those were the recommendations) of
the convention :
1. Tbo establishment of direct steam
communication with Europe
2. The establishment of rates of rail?
way transportation for immigrants from
Charleston to the North-west.
3. The formation in Charleston, and at
the principal points along this proposed
route of immigration and travel, of so?
cieties, on tho plan of the German
Society of South Carolina, now in exist?
ence in the city of Charleston.
4. The formation, in all the healthy
Connties of this and other Southern
Statos, of "COUNTY LAND AND IMMIOUA
TION SoofETiKs," having for their object
the settlement of immigrants upon free
5. The establishment, iu Charleston,
of a Central Board of Immigration.
6. The publication of matters relating
to immigration and of interest to immi?
7. The enaouragemeut of emigration
from the Northern States to this State.
The convention also recommended a
specific riiAN of action, and a proposed
oonstitntion and bye-laws, which we
have already given in these columns. It
remains now for these measures to be
carried ont. All that reports, resolu?
tions and recommendations can do have
been done. The essential part is yot to
be done. The Augusta Chronicle d; Sen
nel weil sajB:
"The records of the past teem with
reports, resolutions, speeches, essays and
editorials touching the desirableness and
the advantages of promoting immigra?
tion to the Sooth. Every variety of in
telleciual effort has beon put forth by emi?
nent Southern citizens. We have had
arguments in abundance and statistics in
profusion. No one has appeared to
doubt the reasonableness of these argu?
ments, nor tho> soundness of the logic
whioh gave point to their deductions;
nor was tho accuracy of the statistics
questioned which made apparent the ad?
vantages which would follow upon direct
intercommunication with civilized Eu?
rope, find a healthful increase of homo?
geneous population from her swarming
hives. But what has boen accomplished?
We have had charters passed by our Le?
gislatures, and high sounding phrases
and brilliant prospectuses from very en?
terprising men, petting forth alluring
schemes and promising rich rewards.
But there the matter, in a great measure,
has ended. Now and then a small cor?
poration would introduce a few Scotch
weavers, and some retired merchants or
wealthy planters would secure for a few
years the skilled labor of Irish or Ger?
man gardeners. But even in thc cases
which form the exception, there waa no
direct communication with Europe. Tho
intervention of New York bankers nud
New York agents were requisite. All
that has beeu accomplished has been
reached through New York and by Now
"The recent proposal of the South
Carolina Railroad Company to subscribe
$100,000 for a lino of European steam?
ships from the port of Charleston, is the
first practical proposition of any impor?
tance that has been made within our
memory. The proposition, an we under?
stand it, is to raino an amount sufficient
to build four first class ocean steamers,
and this company proposes to invest,
$25,000 in each, and promises aid from
roads friendly by connection, in propor?
tion to thoir respective interests. Thia,
as a begiuuing, looks well."
A Practical Point.
In the report of the Committeo on
Cotton Manufactures, Col. J. B. Tulmer,
one of the owners of tho Saluda Factory,
being ohairman, tho following point was
made, and we bring tho matter promi?
nently forward. The report says:
"It is the belief of your committee
that the planters may, with profit to
themselves, aid iu producing this re?
sult, by combining together in joint
stock associations, and crecliug cotton
milla of sufficient capacity to work up
their cotton orops. These mills should
bo managed, not by the planters them?
selves, but by experienced and capable
business men, who will give their undi?
vided attention, with experts in charge
of tho mechanical departments. Manu?
facturing comprises so many details,
that its successful prosecution requires
the most careful and systematic manage?
ment. With all our advantages, inatten?
tion to details and careless management
cannot but produce loss.
"From $2:50,000,000 to 8300,000,000
would bo added to tho value of our cot?
ton crop, if wo wcro to manufacture it
into yarns und woven goods. Of this,
a largo amount would bo paid out for
wages, and that to a class that is now
not only unemployed in adding to tho
weath of tho country, but for tho most
port, a burden upou their parents or tho

Drear, dark and wild the path ha? grown,
By which my trembling ?topa are led,
Life's sun has gone forever down,
And all ot Ufo and hope ia fled.

Who wept her God and sou divino,

A depth of woe so deep as mine.

In vain would Hy from its control.
I reach to Heaven my suppliant banda,
In speechless agony and woo;
This fearful cross appalling stands.
And mocka tho bitter tears that flow.

A Verse- Wreath for the Tenth of May.
Come, flowers, with your language sweet,
Do our interpreters to-day,
And say, all that is right and meet,
For our poor sorrowing hearts to say,
On this memorial tooth of May.
Como, flowers, with your language puro,
In all tho power of Nature's art;
Tell how thoir memory shall endure
Forever in their country's heart,
Who nobly act tho patriot's part.
YOB, como, all fragrant buds and flowers,
That morn o'er diamonded with dow,
That Spring o'ergem'd with sunny showora,
Tell to tte world thero's still a few
Unto tho causo of freedom truo.
And, truo to them, their blood who shed
For their own bleeding country's sake;
Oh! almost envy wo the dead,
Whoso very gravos such memories wake,
As martyrs aud confessors make.
Livo, Southern land! thoro's living firo
beneath the turf wo wreathe to-day,
Which, kindling up, shall hope iuspiro,
With auch revivifying ray,
That livo-yes, lrro again, yon may.

It seems reasonably sure that an Indian
