Tho t'bllojr of tb.9 Pfirtatif ana Planter.
Died of COTTON-born again of conn.
So far as the ind aa trial interests of South
Carolin? are concerned, ve are satisfied
that a change qt policy is demanded.
Cotton cooma now to be in some respects
tho bono of tho State. We speak with
Toluctcnco upon this subject, for our
doctrine is that farmors, as a general
rale, know best what pertains to their
material interests. To us, however, it
does ee?tn obvious that the plantation or
faro ought to be self-sustaining. To
plant less area-selecting the beat-and
oui ti vate it more thoroughly; to plant
Ices of cotton and CR GT ? of the cereal and
root crops-this seems to us to be tho
true policy. It is madoess to plant cot?
ton when the coBt pf production is above
tho price o? the commodity. It is mad?
ness for the plaufcer to pat himself in the
hands Of thp commission mexobant, how?
ever fair he oday be. The planting iu
fcoroat of tho SMe is the bono and sinew
of the State. The wealth of the State

e oqu so h na Vs. A8 ft" jpjw. ve kPO.w *hat
it io, to a large estent, unreliable and in
officient. We wast uso the labor wo
have at least Until we eau get better.
On this subject, our policy is to reduce
the forcp'fvs low possible, and by good
wages and, CIOMO supervision., in?rense its
efficiency. Let white labor be intro?
duced as fast aa possible and bo fully en?
couraged.-- ??efc tho poor white man,
whether mechanic gr laborer, receive our
special consideration, and let every us
siatanoe be given him tp help him in?
crease his fortunes. In this connection,
we invite attention to tho agricultural
address of Goberai R. Toomba, recently
delivered. in Georgia. The Columbus
Inquirer says: >."'
Gen. Toomba' address opened with an
eloquent ?nd beautiful tribute to tbe
dignity and the necessity of labor. It
was the law of God, imposed upon mau
from 4|he time of his creation. He ap-'
nouncod his purpose to be to endeavor
to show how the least amount of human
labor could supply the greatest amount
cf human w^ut. . Thin ?vas all that man
could do to mitigate the stern decree,
"by the sweat of thy brow shalt thoa eat
The greater portion of Gen. Toomba'
Address was an argument to show the
impolicy of planting all cotton, or large
oropsof cotton and small crops of grain.
He contended that the true economy of
the people of the South was to plant a
sufficiency of provision crop.) for the
support of their own families, their
laborers, their working stock, and the
fattening of their own meat, and to give
the surplus labor to the production of
cotton. He showed the fallacy of the
calculation of many planters, by which
they figured out a greater amount of
money to-be derived from an aore in
cotton than from an acre in corn. The
error consisted in the assumption that it
required no more labor to cultivate
an acre in cotton than one in corn;
whereas the truth is, tho labor of the
cotton field is at least four-fold tho
greatest. The farmer breaks up his
ground for au acre of corn, plants it,
and gives it in all three workings-the
whole consuming not moro than four
days, at the cost of about sis dollars per
acre; uud then tho work is liuished-the
crop laid by in July. But cotton re?
quires much more labor in planting,
thinning out, ploughing and hoeing; nud
when July comes, instead of a termina?
tion of work with the crop, it still has to
bo ploughed and hoed, and tho picking
will consame the balance of thc year.
It thus appears thut the same forco can?
not only cultivate u much larger area in
com than in cotton, but that only about
one-third of the time is required*for tiic
raising of corn. Gen. Toomba regarded
the time consumed in tho production of
the crops as a very important considera?
tion in view of the present unreliability
cf labor. Should the laborers "strike,"
or quit their work in Joly, the exclusive
cotton planter is ruined; but he may be
sure of a oom crop with only two months
work in the spring. Inadequate as are
the remedies to enforce the observance
of labor oontraots, it is of the utmost
importance to the agriculturalist that hu
should make sure of at least a support
for the year, in any contingency.
Gen. Toomba regarded the practice of
making Louisville and other Western
cities the oorn-oribs and Bmokc-housos
of the South as a most wretched and
impoverished policy. He declared that
it would not do for our people to follow
it, even if they could get corn for nothing
in the Western States. The freight aud
other charges would still amount to
moro than tho real cost of raising il
hore, Wihon tho proper proportion of
cotton and oom is ca?ti-ruted. Such .?
polioy wonld bo tho building up of tito
prosperity of other sectious, to the impo?
verishment of our own.
Tho Cincinnati 'limes says that Mis?
souri enfranchisement "is a measure of
justice, but not very wholesome to the
Republican party. Measures of justice
wholesome to society aro never whole?
some to malefactors. Let justice be
done, tho Republican party bo hanged.

high tributo to thogo genfclemenj for the
services thoy rendered in the recent
campaign ia this State. We did not
anticipate any setious irupte?siou upon
the colored voters, but the effort made
to enlighten their minds and to direct
aright their political conduct, was a
magnanimous one. But ii waa not to
the colored voters alone that Judge
Carpenter and General Butler directed
their appeals. They awoke and stimu?
lated tho energies of their white fellow
citizens. Thoy rendered distinguished
services, and thoy desorvo well of South
Carolina. If they did not command
success, they did more-they deserved it.

Tho Rhine is now a German river. The
surrender of Neuf Breisach yields tho
lust of tho German fortresses upon that
river, and there are now only threo
French strongholds left in Alsace and
Lorraine. These three are Bitcho, on
the frontier of Rhenish Bavaria; Phals
bonrg, in thc Vosges Mountains, and
Belfort, in the department of Hant
Rhin, souie miles from the Rhine. The
two first-named are said to bo absolutely
impregnable to assault, and can only be
taken by tho slow process of starvation,
though a small force can mask them.
Belfort is claimed to be stronger than

or flanked and left behind.
The determined note which Russia
sends to tho other powers, demanding an
abolition or modification of tho treaty
of 1856, is significant. She desires to bo
free that she may make war on Turkey.
Sho takes advantage of an auspicious
moment to repudiate the treaty which
has hampered her on the shores of tho
Black Sea. Russia can make a general
European war inevitable by insisting on
this concession, for it strikes homo to
old England, and if, as reported, tho
Czar is in leuguo with Prussia iu his
object, may not tho friends of Franco
see in it all a combiuatiou of circum?
stances resulting in tho safe and trium?

COTTON.-From tho auuunl report of
tho National Association of Cotton Man?
ufacturers and Planters, the Now York
Commercial Advertiser compiles some in?
teresting statistics of the home consump?
tion of cotton for the your ending Ooto
ber 1, 1870. Thoso statistics show that
tho total amount of cotton spun, accord?
ing to a ratio basod upon tho returns of
03 per cont, of tho cotton-spinning power
in tho whole country, was 318,349,940
pounds, of which 20,650,173 was in
Southern mills and 298,193,407 in North?
ern mills. Thero woro also 3,213,032
poonda otherwise consumed in the North.
The number of spindlos oconpied was
5,762.988 in the North and 166,275 in
the Hon th-total 5,929,263. The reports
of 430 Northern mills show an increase
of consumption in 1869-70 over 1868-9
of 1.67 per cent., or 4,787,324 pounds,
and in spindles of 2.72 per oont. In the
same period the inorease of consumption
in 53 Southern mills was 6.26 per cent.,
or 1,155.255 pounds. The total increase
was 1.95 percent., or 5,942,279 pounds
of cotton, and in spindles of 2.65 per
cent. Tho returns of cotton used in the
mills "otherwise than for spinning,"
were too incomplete to allow a satisfac?
tory comparison with last year. This
year's work was reduced by the long
strike at Fall River, and by the loss of
water power by tho drouth, leaving but
about 290 working days to bo conn tod
for, tho avorngo of nil the Northern mills,
instead of 300, tho ordinary number of
working days. Thc anticipated fall in
tho prico of cotton, consequent on a pro?
sont excess in supply, aud the war in
Europe, togother open to manufacturers

moat important etop is for tho paliont to

on thin continent for this pulposo in winter,
is Florida, well down in the state, whore the
temperature is regular, and not subject to
such variations as in more Northern latitudes.
Palatka is a point I can recommend. A good
hotel ia kept there by Poterman. Last win

had been badly diseased, but who, under thc
healing influence of tho eli m ato and my modi
cines, wero getting well.
One hundred miles further down tho rivet

might bc better, and patients complain a

a return of appetite, and when this is tho caa?

Jacksonville, Hibernia, Green Covo, ant
many other places in various parts of Florida
can bo safely recommended to consumptive!
in winter. My reasons for saying so are tba
patients aro less liable tu tako cold thoro thai
whero thoro is a less evon temperature, and i
is not necessary to say that where a consump

ho is certain to dio shortly. Thtjrefore. m;

STAMPS-IMPORTANT TO OWNERS OF
OLD DKEX>S, &C.-Many documents, re?
quired by law to bear revenue stamps,
were executed during the war without
them; und, on account of carelessness or
ignorance, muuy have been executed
since the authority of the Government
was restored, without tho requisite
stamps. Until tho recent change in the
revenue laws, it was a matter of some
difficulty to have these documents stamp?
ed; it involved in many coses the penalty
of $50. Now, however, the low Imf
been so changed that tho penally to bc
paid is only double the amount of stamp
duty, to bc iu no case, however, lesi
thun S5. The Collector of internal revc
nue has tho power of remission of over
this small penalty in certain cases, whet
due cause is shown, provided the iustru
mont is presented to him before Angus1
1, 1872, or within one year ofter its mak
ing and issue. Where an instrument
required by law to be stamped, WOB is
sued unstamped at a time when, ant
place where, no collection district hat
been established, it is lawful for air
party, having an interest therein, t<
stamp it himself, prior to Jannury 1
1872. As, however, the rates of stout]
duty have been several times ohanged
parties would do well to consult the Col
lector of internad revenue before offixinj
stamps to such instruments.
