Mb. KDiToir Hating read an article, in a past
number of the Chronicle, on the encouragement of
domestic manufactures ti the South, and, particu
larly, in ClnfksviRc'; also your recent ingtnhjus ex
planation In endeavoring to. explain dirputed points
in the former; and having, In practical way,
studied this subject closely, In all its bearings, for a
feneration past, I beg leave to offer some sugges
tions which may bring more light upon the subject,
as they are brought up from the under stratum of
the basis itself. -
Frem the first settlement of the Southern States,
to the present time, the great' mass of the people
have been engaged in agriculture, almost wholly
depending upon the North to supply them with
the necessities, conviencles and luxuries of life;
and for the last thirty years this policy has been
pursued with untiring industry and stretched to
Its utmost tension. It has pervaded the minds of
the whole population and covered every Inch of
territory, as the waters cover the great deep. A
Noah need not tend out a dove to . find out
whether this flood Is abating, so long as the irresis
tible torrent of Northern trade continues to rush
South with nn hundred fold Increased' velocity,
continuing to sweep before it the few and feeble
manufactories that attempt to impede its successful
progress. ' '
The proof of this is every where to be seen.
Almost, if not every Implement on the flirrj Is of
Northern manufacture, from an axe handle to a
wagon ; our entire dwellings are furnished in the
same way; our children arc rockerl In Tankee
cradles, learn to wnlk ill Yankee shoes, learn to
read in Yankee books surely we ought to learn
ther to whistle "ynnkee dopdlc." We grow up
dressed from head to foot in Yankee fabrics : we
measure our mortal hoars by the face of Yaukce
clocks, and finally, our grnvee are dug with spades
and we are hurried in coffins of the same tnnuu-
fucture. Hence, the Southern States havt made
thcnurlvei dependent upon aud tributary to tho
North, wliobc mammoth manufactories, . palatial
mansions, and busy cities have, in the main, been
built by Southern money, aud princely, fortune
made by Southern industry and enterprise. Aod
why so 7bcranse, " Thete handi were never made to
work." Look at Clftrltsville, not ouly' now, ' but
even in the poy, you find a few Wated "manuracv
tories eking out a feelile' existence, from want of
patronage and prompt pay. ' " Some have been
crushed under the ifheele of Ihi mighty North
ern Juggernaut; others have become obso
lete, and some of the few that remain are dragged
along by a ono-hor9e power, impeded by the re
sistance of a two horse loiidof debt. ' Wild of the
rising generation knows whether a hat i manu
fuctured, or whether they grow on trees, lor all
that they know of them is: that thousands are nl
ways ready for sale, and when sold thousands more
step into vacant shelves. . Fifteen, years ago the
Inst hat manufactory, In Caiksvllle, sang iu ileal
song; tli? o'i sign, ft ft lmt, hewd mbwitjively
to the etorn mandate of public opinion the love
for Yankee hats. It came down was consigned
to the tomb of the capulcts, ."aDd may, like. Cesar's
clay, be used to stop a hole to keep the wind
. I shall now enquire into the causes 'which
have produced such deplorable results, more, par
ticularly within the last thirty years. First, the
increased facilities in transportation, from one end
of the country to the other. The increasing
high prices of cottDn, tobacco, sugar, Ac, Ac,
lured men to embark in extraordinary agricultural
pursuits, on such an extensive scale, as the world
had never before witnessed, for, by authority of,
aud uudcr the protection of law, one person hu the
right to own, not only a farm but as many as he
can pay for a whole county, acres, ad infinitum--and
thus many became not only rich, but amassed
wealth which excited the astonUhmeut of princes
They have ever bad the power, and lawful right,
after purchase, to dispossess the former owners of
the Tariouf tracts of land, and thereby depopulate
large sections (now subject to the undisputed con
trol of one man). They had the lawful right to
prosecute and punish any one who might , sef foot
upon their territory, without their approval. They
also bad the right to convert the fruitful CulJs
of their vast -domain Inro-a howling wilderness
and bunting paricaitd who dare guliuny fpjt Anl
as a consequence, such men became proud, arrogant
and ariitocractic ; lordly In their bearing, Imagin
ing they were living in feudal times; exercising
supremo contempt fur manual labor either by
themselves or by others: for three handt tcere
never made to teork." . '
Their pernicious influence, was iu'used through.
out all the ramifications of society (I shall not
use the common hi, r ise "clateet," in Its adoption
aud acceptation, for there ore only two among men,
the virtuous and th vicious), men or lesser
means caught the infection, aud aped the foimer
ercu the poor followed in the w ake, for fear of
becoming the "mudsills' of magnificent mper-
structure, built of gold, the . weight of which
would crush them out orexUtence. Weak minded
and light headed women taught their babes ani
Kuckliugs'tbat they were the offspring of noble
proirenators; that rAry were nor of gentlemen
aud ladles, nd, therefore, u their delicate little
hand mere not mule to work.''' Fathers recognized
the teaching by their outward deportment, and
thus it became bw Iu the household. How
truly does the poet sing
t'T Is educet'o forms the common mind,
. , Just as Ui twig is bent, the tree' inclined." ' 1

eanitndy Paradise lost without a book, and set the
Devil, and his auKUs. without drun in on the
imagination' aud i thought my ha rou 'Wlit
nwistmeln mr troubled ft-lln.- I have alwav,
Mr. Happy, endeavoiwMo new th ..bright aide of
every pikter if it hnd any, but there is ouo or two
subjerks about which I ld roily nigh gin it up. ' I
I want Ton tocii mo if you can, about what i
Ume are the black republicans coin to quit peric-
cutin onripsokleT Wtfat.ara they so mvcrliuitin
mad with us about? Old ekcwball ssvs its for
treeson that we've gone and dene, and thi.t I am,
the (lowest pemeevin mau he evet seed uot to bar
tuunu it out. . . . . ,
Now Treason is a mlty bad tiling, and any man
found guilty of trcesonought to be talked to by a
preacher right under a gnllus, and then be allnwed
to stand on nothin for a few hours by the clock.
Shore cnuf treeson I mean. : Treeson where a man
slips around on the sly in time of war, and likes
side agin his country. Jest as though for instance,
i should bare worked gin my suvrin State after
she had secceded, and stole her powder or destrtcd
her in her time of peril, while she was defendin
herself against the combined assault of tli world,
the flesh and the devil.1 I wouldnt have Warned
nobody for hanging me for the like, wonld you 1
But Skew boll sars we aint got no suvreen Suites
that the war have settled th question agin us on
that piut I dont think so my trend, i admit that we
aint uothin iu partikler low,, but wo did bar suv
reen .States rvfbre th war, md the sword aint
.settled nor unsettled n great principles. - There
aint no trial of right or wrong by wger of battle
now a day. For mity nigh a hundred yean this
counivy have been a big debatin society en those
question ' From the time nf Hamilton and Jell'erion
down to 1801, the right or a State to d if solve her
own partnership have been itrguel by powerful
minded men, nlid there has been more for it th.tu
agin it. Mora Presidents more Senators, more
statesmen, more judges, more people.- Ma.-mychu-
setts anil Connecticut wvreforitat onetime, and
believed ro-nd and pawed dirt amnzin to git out,
but they found out liiircua wb ' willin ' and they
didnt go. I l-elieve, however, that old Nutmeg
did stay out about two ho'ir and a half . '
Well the South went out mity unwilllrcrly, Xf.
Urpf, a you know. She had been mity niuh
kicked ont for long time, and there was a big
party that wanted a to go out and, stay out
hvery body know we dldent git along in peace,
so we concluded to do Ilka Abraham and his
brother In law; to separate our households.. What
they . wanted to ktyip us for I taevcr could see, nnd
cuit see ylt. - I wonldcnt hare a nigger or a dog
to stay round m that dlccnt want to. Home my
they wanted us to strengthen em agin their ene
mies In esse, of a furrin war. Does any , nfnn in
his tenses expect us to help the black republican
whip any body ? Hove we got any worse enemies
than they are? They van' make us fight I reckon
if we dont want to. ' We've fout cnuf and made
nothing by it but glory, and we aint a going to gine
in another war to gratify other people. Dodds
says before he'd pull a trigger for Thad.. Stevens,
he d hnve his soul .transmigrated to a bench leg d
ficej and bark at his daddy mnlcs "2000 years. I
winder if the cxperiene of tin last (bur years

- It may be seen by ref.rcnee to New York circn

respectively 238,0d0, 217,000, 2-17,000 and 307'
000, hogsheads, averaging 227,000 hogsheads. It
will lie noticed that this was the quantity delivered
at points wltcnre it was shipped and delivered for
couaiimptioo. .The largest estimate for this crop t

frttMioh over o::c fourth of the average crops four

partition and consumption, and we wjnt 340,500
bogdieads for that time; had tobacco not baen con
sumed nearly or quire m fast (is produced wff would
nqw have a sto.k beyond consumption. The cans
es of. this diminution in production are variou;
the most potent, however, is the demoralized con
dition of Jabor with no abatement of the evil,
the negroes neera to have a mania for town lifld
citicj.. . It may be argued that fre will have sub -stilus?
to compete with. This wo think l ardly
likely, ns we are assured that less tobacco wt
grown in Europe last year ' than formerly. Thl
seems quite reasonable, as the low price ruling for
tbe kinds of tobacco usually supplanted wonld su-pei-scdr
tho inducement or iieoeHsity to raise nb.
stitutes. ' It will b seen by reference to the price
current that the low grade of tobacco rule cheep

the war, when the entire country was iu the rigo
of its production. We mention gold, at foreigner
liy in gold, and the foreign demand fixe mainly
its value; whilst price for good and flue tobaccjs.
may be rrgnrded as much aliove the average, yt
their comparative scanliy will justify it demand fur
the most extreme figure". No one conversant. with!
the trade will deny that the prorlion of pood
and fine In tho crops of I86J-4-5, Is very far be.
low the usual amount, and ns some of nil the
cops now constitute the stock, we think it entirely
safe to say Unit not over one sixth is good to fine,
hieh will fait materially to meet th home de
mand, leaving nothing for export. The amount
of crop for llj.n'O' depends on the organization , of
labor. Duriug January and February the otd
