Cotton Ila;siBg;a.t tlie South.
I'El'.ATE IX THE
The Kirlinwnrl'jEf!jarsr furnishes the
following report of the recent debate in
the Confederate Senate on cotton-raising '
at the South, which was s,!!uded to in
the Intelligencer of yesterday. The de
bate took place on the l'Jtb ultimo:
The resolution which was sent to the
Senate from the House of Representa
tives proposed to advise the planters of
the Confedsracy to abstain from raising
cotton and tobacco this ye and ,to .de.
vote themselves" exclusively to the pro
duction of grain and provisions.
Mr. Brown, of Mississippi, moved to
lay this f re-solution on the table, for the
purpose of allowing him to introduce a
bill t6' curtail the cotton crop for the
year l$6- : I .' y.-:- : -r ! -3 .1. i .
, The. measure proposed, by Mil'rown
ptovides that no planter or head of a
family shall sow more cottonseed than
will produce more ithan three bales of
the staple .for. himself,. and one bale, for
each of the hands employed in the cul
ture during the year 182'; 1 and, In case
of exceeding this! number,' tlie penalty
Bhall bo $10 fine for. each bale; and,
further, that the planter or head of fam
ily shall bo required , to swear to the
exact number of balM' raised during
the year, and to be treated as a perjurer
if ho swears falsely. ; i ,
A? j. ltinn oii-l flint 41,. vnor.l 4 : a
of the llouse. was not of the slightest use
in the World. If anything, it ,'would
have a bad effect, inasmuch as it virtu
ally offered a .premium lor treachery.
Patriotic citizens would not plant any
cotton, with or .without the resolution;
but the largo class of grasping Sylocks,
bent on gain and personal aggrandize
ment, would pay ho attention to the ad
vice of Congress ; and for these Mr.
Brown would have a compulsory law.
He conceived that a large cotton crop
this year would be ruinous to us, since
the labor of plantations would be with
drawn from the production of provisions
absolutely needful for the support of our
armies and our - people. He thought
that if there was evil ih the cotton crop
we should strike at the root, or take it
by the throat. , , ' ,
- inr; t.my; or fsn rn v o n. H, l ;y, L lliC
genllemaii was mistaken as to tho num
ber of unpatriotic planters. Tho class,
in his judgment, was very small.
Mr. Clay, of Alabama, suggested that
the measure proposed by the gentleman
was unconstitutional. The forfeiture of
the forty dollars per bale was an indirect
mode of raising revenue, and all bills for
this purpose, under the constitution, must
be originated in the House of Jieprcsen-
Mr. Wig fall, ot Texas, said that if any
lower was laid down clearly in the con
stitution of tlie old Government-and in
the new it was the definition of the pew-
crs of Congress regarding the punish
ment ol the crimes ot treason, of piracy,
ami ol telony on the logo seas. Here it
is clearly laid down that Congress can
not create crime. Apart from the un
constitutionality of the proposition, Mr.
Wigfall objected to the measure proposed
for other reasons, lie was not sure that
it was good policy for us to neglect rais-
nigcottoii. Unless we continue to raise
the staple in abundance, Kngland would
foster its cultivation, and after the war it
would be difficult for us to monopolize
the markets of tlie world. If we raised
no cotton in 1SG2 it'would keep the price
up so high that it would pay the other
nations of the wqrld to invest largely.
This is the policy most th-sircd by Kng
lish statesmen, and it is that which has
prevented the raising tho blockade. .
-Mr. hrown could not understand why
a bill to punish people for not burning
cotton likely to fall into the hands of the
enemy was m.t unconstitutional when
one to punish the production of the article
was. lie conceived that in time of war
the powers of Congress were augmented,
and that it is was quife different: from
Mr. Clav replied that prisons allowing
cotton to fall into the hands of the enemy
were guilty oi treason; for it is giving
aid and comfort, to tlie foe, and that is
treason, and treason is one of the crimes
ileliiied by tin' coiiftituiion. Mr. Clay
denied, also, that the constitution was so
clastic that it expanded its rowers in war
and contracted Itiem in peace 1 lie con
htitution was the sunn- always.
Mr. Barnwell, of South Carolina, as
not prepared t abandon the cultivation
of cotton under any circumstances,
though he admitted a great deal of labor
should be bestowed upon the production
of supplies, especially at this juncture.
On the cultivation ot cotton and increase
of suppMcs fur market depend not only
our sources ot wealth, but our importance,
and conseiiuente, and weight with for-
i in nations. All our interests appeal to
us never to give it up. We must raise it,
hold it, and light for it. We must let the
world know that we have it, and that
we will sell it cheap, and that we will
liht to keep it from our enemy and to
protect i. We hhonlil not onf v protect
outelcs uaiir-l our ciii iu v. wu nlionld
not "ive our sole Mrcnoth to the piodii'j
lion ef articles of subsistence, but v,'c
must keep .up the cultivation of that
w hich pives us position ia the world as a
nation, and by which we will control the
world- We must have monopoly of all
the market. . We begin to find out, thai
we have not a monopoly, that cotton cat
be produced elsewhere. Plentiful crops,
low prices, and superiority of the article
will alone achieve our end.. These at
the end of the War will give us our form
er preponderance. The proposition of
the gentleman from Mississippi (Mr.
13 rev,' n ) excited his unfeigned asicn.s.i-
jueui. , n ii4 lo.icci.c:; s. 10 &c s, long
settled principle that this Government,
or one with similar powers, could not
create a crime under the common law.
He protested warmly against th grosset
assumption of authority' he had. ever
Mr. Scmmcs, of Louisiana, would like
the .vote direct on tho resolution, and for
this purpose asked that tho motion to iay
on the table be withdraw)
This was done and the resolution was
put upon its passage, and debate regular
ly opened, . , ' -
Mr. Hunter, of Virginia, objected to the
bill of -Mr. Brown, for two reasons : First,
be did not wisli to tax the patriotism of
the planters, and, secondly, the want of
pwcr of Congress to interfere with the
infernal affairs of any of the Statcs.-i-Thc
policy which diminishes tho supply
of cotton will hold out no inducements
for England to break up the blockade.
By keeping cotton scarce and high, its
production is stimulated in other coun
tries; India, for instance. If we are de
nied admission to the markets for several
years, anU ; no price is kepi loiweiuy
five or to thirty cents, see what powerful
incentives are given to its production
elsewhere To bring about, this state of
things and to become the main producer
is the secret of all British legislation.
This stimulates the planters in their trop
ical colonies to raise cotton , under any
disadvantage; otherwise their interests
as manufacturers would have compelled
them to raise the blockade., fCotton is a
source of power and influence only so
long ns we can raise and keep it in vast
quantities at low prices. As to the con
stitutionality of the bill proposed by Mr.
Brown, Mr.' Hunter said the Confederate
States Government had not the least
right to go to any of the States and say
how much cotton slijouldibe produced.
Tho sovereignty of thu States themselves
hardly daru Jo this, much Tcss the delo-
T$'atm7T ''pWeror ITi'e. UerifvdJiat y.' If Z'JT
believed that Congress would pass any
such act, or the Government possessed
any such power, he would pronounce it a
most notorious despotism, worse even
than that from which we have just es
caped. Mr. Brown urgeu tliat tlie mam oiijeet
of tho enemy being to pass down to the
Mississippi valley and seize our cotton,
we should prevent any moro being there
than could bo helped, i ho
cotton could be raised in India was, to
use a homely phrase, played out. He
was "in favor of burning all the cotton we
now had, and planting no more until the'
world was disposed to do us justice.
we could test the question of cotton rais
ing in India, with no fears as to the re
sult. Ilrgardless of every Bower on
earth, let us act for ourselves and strike
blows lor our own superiority.
Mr. Senimcs, of Louisiana, had long
since abandoned tho idea that cotton is
king. He had arrived at the conclusion
that this was a mistake. Nations would
violate the laws of nations to supply
themsclvt s with cotton, and interest was
the ruling principle of the world. We
have tested the powers of King Cotton,
and have found him to be wanting. Yve
must now abandon all dependence on for
eign intervention, ine ljngusii never
will interfere, because it is not for their
interest. Bather than make war with
the United States she would convert her
Government into an eleemosynary for
the maintenance of her hordes of star
ving operatives. She would do this be
cause it would be cheaper, and because
the darling projects of her statesmen could
be fostered and cotton be produced in her
colonics. He voted for tho resolution for
the reason that warning should be given
the people to prepare for tho continuance
of a leirthy war, and that produce must
be raised for our subsistence.
Mr. Wigfall acknowledged that cotton
was not king, but merely the badg of
royalty to him who possessed it. Ibis
was the reason England abstained from
raiawur our blockade. She wished to sco
us destroyed as cotton producers, so that
she could become raiser as well as spin
ner, and thus command tho world. Sho
abandoned her own West Indies b abo
lition iu order to foster cotton-raising i 1
The resolution was finally put to vote
on its adoption, and loat aa follows:

Dorch, Henry, Mitchell, Sparrow, and
Nays Messrs. Barnwell, Baker, Horn

An Krlcshon IMa'jr.
Captain Ericsson left hero yesterday
morning, having fully completed ar
rangements for tlie rapid construction of
six new Monitors, or, as our Southern
friends have dubbed them, "Yankee
Cheese boxes." The construction of
these vessels was announced some days
ago, but sonic slight changes having
been decided on, for purposes of conve
nience in the working of the vessel and
guns, the matter was delayed a short
time till the department could be con
ferred with. Now, however, they will
be pressed forward in completion with
the same degree of energy Capt. Erics
son displayed in the construction of his
first vessel. Now that it is fully set
tled that vessels upon this plan possess
superior sea going qualities, and that
they can be constructed for a moderat
price, comparatively, it is reasonable to
expect that we shall soon have an Erics
son navy, that will at least not Buffer in
comparison with tho boasted navies of
the old world. These new Monitors''
are to be of superior size and sfrength,
and will possess ample room for the
workiug of the guns and for the accom
modation of tho ollicers and men. They
will have greater speed and will be supe
rior vessels in all respects. It will be
remembered that the revolving turret oT
the present vessel is only eight inches
thick, and although it is deemed impreg
nable to any projectile now in use in any
of the navies of the world, yet to guard
fully aainstnost or all of the contin-
eucies of the future, the turrets ol the
new vessels are to have a thickness of
eleven inches. The Secretary of the na
vy has acted with a highly commenda
ble alacrity in pushing to a 'conclusion
arrangements for the building of these

A Havana correspondent of the New
