the city, whether of domestic production or im
ported from abroad. We also intend to make the
" Weekly Usios x xn Axkkicas," in all respect',
with solid and instructive matter for the advan
tage of the rising generation, and for the enter
tainment and comfort of those more advanced In
life. The proprietors of tho " Ukiox jisd Ameri
cas" havo lived and been engaged in the
newspaper business long enough to obtain a knowl
edge of the true wants of a great, honest and vir
tuous people.who, though unfortunate, are striving
to transmit to their descendants, in culture and
nurture, tho highest and most noble qualities,
industry, self-reliance, and dignity of character.
Fciiy appreciating te power and beneficence ot
woman, they will endeavor to make this paper an
acceptable companion to the mothers and daugh
ters of tho country, wherefrom they may derive
both profit and pleasure.
To persons desirous of making known to the
public their business, we may say that our circula
tion by mail, reaching every Post Office which has
been re-opened in the State, besides an extensive
circulation in adjoining States, gives our advertis
ing columns superior advantages.
The advance in the prices".? every article which
enters into the production'of newspapers is such
that the terms upon which they are furnished
must necessarily correspond. In common with
our city contemporaries, we have adopted the

The following interesting communication,
-upon a subject that should not fall to - excite
the sympathies of everytone, we find in the
Messrs. pDiTqcs : The poor and dependent or
Dhans in the State of Mississinni are estimated to
be about 10,000, most'of whom are the children of
have neither father, nor mother, nor relative of
any Kind to provide tor tnetr pnysicai wants,
or secure for them suitable intellectual and moral
culture. The humane and benevolent must come
to their aid, or they will perish for want of bread,
or grow up m ignorance and vice.
Tomectthisrpressinirexisency. tho Orphans
Home of the State of Mississippi " has been inau
gurated. The Lauderdale Springs property has.
been purchased for the purposes of the institution,
and the most needy and helpless of tbeao children
will be admitted into tho "Homo" as soon as
practicable. The Board of Trustees has been po-.
culiarly fortunate in procuring these premises for
this noble charity. They are situated within a mile
of Lauderdale Station, on the Mobile and Ohio
Railroad, and possess many advantages which are
not often available. The campus embraces Some
fifteen acres of ground, with a gradual slope, well
shaded with forest aad ornamental trees, and is
susceptible of the highest possible improvements.
There are also connected with the premises 250
acris of land, 'part of which is now in cultivation
and the rest is in wood-land. To this the Board
has added by. purchase the principal part of a sec
tion of land in tho immediate vicinity.
The buildings, when prpperly repaired, will bo
admirably adapted to tee objects pf the institu
hapfess orphans. IE "Q 'lnten1uilT3; fS&C'ct&OH,
and educate all the children admitted to the
"Home ;'' and as ther advance in ngc, they will
be taught all the useful trades, and be fitted, for
teaching, or other useful and honorable callings
of life. By these means tho children under our
care will be qualified not only to support them
selves when they leave tho institution, but to con
tribute materially to thesuppnrtof dependent re
lations and the welfare of society at large.
To complete tho payments for the'property and
make the necessary repairs on the premises, the
Board needs at least $6,000 immediately. The de
pressed condition of the finances of the people of
the State generally, and the derangement and un
certainty attending the labor system in our midst,
preclude the hope of procuring the necessary
means at homo of putting this instntion into
speedy operation, and affording to these poor
children the aid which is required without delay.
The Board is, therefore, compelled to ask tho as
sistance of all who sympathize with these, poor
suffering children in this emergency. It is is ex
pected that the institution will be self-sik'talning
in a fev years. Proper aid at the present junc
ture will be of lasting and incalculable advantage
to the deserving class whom it is sought to benefit.
Shall we lie in our beds of down, while theso poor
orphans aro suffering from cold and exposure on
their pallets of straw? Shall we sit at our sump
tuous hoards, while these hapless children perish
with hunger? Shail we provide for the mental
and moral cultnre of our own favored loved ones,
and have no care for tho intellectual development
and moral training of God's poor T They stretch
out their imploring hands, in their rags, and hun
ger and deep wretchedness, and exclaim, "Have
Sity upon us, O ye, our friends, for tho hand of
od has touched us." Let each of us inquire,
"How much do I owe to this suffering class?"
Remember, "it is more blessed to give than to re
ceive," and "he that glvcth to tho poor lendeth to
the Lord." Remember, also, that pure and unde
fined religion is this, "To visit the fatherless and
widow in their nfflietion."

Avrnrvsnv. Kan.. Jan. 3. The Dailv Chanmion
of to-day publishes an accurate statement of the
amount of freight shipped from hero across the
plains during tho past year. Twenty-seven firms
and individuol freighters were engaged in this
trade during the year. The aggregate amount
of their shinmenta was 20.500.000 of as
sorted merchandise, requiring for its transporta
tion nearly o.WJO wagons, over 7,uuu mules ana
horses, and nearly 28,000 oxen: employing up
wards of 5.000 men. Over half this trcight went
to Colorado; the remainder to different points in
Utah, Montana, Nevada, Idaho, New Mexico, Ne
braska and western Kansas, including military
posts. The total capital invested in this business
was over $0,000,000. The value of merchandize,
machinery and transportation is not definitely
known. Tho overland coaches, which leave and
arrive here daily, havo taken over and brought in
over 4,000 passengers, and also brought here $2,
400,000 in specie. Butlerfield's overland dispatch
has carried a largo number of passengers each
wav, but that lino having been established late in
the season, no accurate statement of its busi
ness is made. The freighting business in this city
is seven times greater mis year man in isoi, nvo
times larger than in 1SG2, four times larger than
in 1863. and 5.000.000 DOunds greater than in lSdl.
The most experienced freighters think the trado
of lSbO will be nearly double that or last year.
TueScoarof Louisiana. A late fer from
New Orleans thus shows the operation of the
present labor system upon the best sugar lands in
the country not well suited for anything else. The
crop in the State, it is shown, is about one-fiftieth
of what it was before the war, say 8,000 hhds. Wo

of Mr. Walker, another large planter, has been
reduced from COO to 30 hhds., cultivated on the
same plantation, and with the same proportion of
laborers. This shows a decline of someeightyper

TnE Southern Pkospect in Coxgkess
Ciieebino Intelligence. " Druid,"
the Washington correspondent of the New
York Noes, gives the following cheering ac
count of the Southern prospect in Congress :
There are strone indications that Contrress
will re-aaaemble on the 9th of January (for
practically the recess will last until then) in
a better frame of mind as regards the admis
sion of the Southern members. There is an
open rebellion in the Republican camp
against the exclusive policy of Mr. Thaddcu3
Stevens. The elements sufficient to defeat
that policy in the House already exist there.
All that is wanted is a leader for the moder
ate and conservative Republicans. If Mr.
Raymond will assume that position it will bo
cheerfly conceded to him. Hut he must
first home out boldly and strongly in defense
of the President's policy. If he will not do
so some other leader will be found.
The Southern members of Congress have
only gone home to spend the Christmas holi
days. They will be here again by the
middle of January. Before the adjourn
ment of Congress they had an interview
with the President, and ho gave them such
encouragement as leads them to believe that
they will all be admitted before the close of
this session, and some of them from Tennes
see, Arkansas, and Virginia at a very early
period. Soon after the 9lh of January, an
attempt will be made to refer the credentials
of these members to the Committee on Elec
tions. If this attempt is successful the bat
tle is won. For that committee will report
favorably to their admission, and the action
of the House will be sure to sustain the com
mittee The late message of the President,
and the report of Gen. Grant, by which it
was supported, have contributed much to
bring about this result. All of the mode
rate and conservative Republicans now Ray
that the question bears a different aspect
than it did before that message was sent in.
They cannot, they say, at the mere dictation
of Mr. Stevens, overlook and set at nought
a State paper of such gravity, emanating
from the executive branch of the Govern
ment. Before this message there might ltave
been a question as to the flatus of these
States; out there can be none now. Such
was the tone of many of the Republicans be
fore they left for iheir homes : and there
can neno uouui mat uiey win come oacs in
the same frame of mind,

"Naturally, the first place visited by your
committee was Richmond, Vai, .the. capital
of the late Confederacy. Our coming had
been heralded in the newspapers there, and
the demonstration at the railroad depot on
citv. Ve found a laroe concorirsfrbi tt:is.tT
of African descent, awaiting us, and as we
disembarked from tho cars, they hailed us
with shouts cf welcome, mingled with "this
way to the Spottswood House," "here's yer
buss, for the Continental," "here's yer cab
for any part of the city," "baggage to the
hotel, gents," &c
"It was gratelul to the hearts ol loyal men
to be thus welcomed in a city so lately the
headquarters of rebellion, while at the same
time wc began to feel convinced already
that the only truly loyal people of the South
were of the colored race. AV e could not de
cline hospitalities so generously tendered us,
and accordingly we selected two carriages
from the large number placed at our dis
posal. We were driven to the Spottswood
by our hospitable friends, who charged us
two dollars apiece, and half a dollar extra
for baggage. After so much kindnen from
tho colored race, we were unprepared Tor the
harsh treatment we subsequently received
from die white oligarchs at Richmond. The
proprietors of the Spottswood cave us rooms
in the fifth story, back, saying to the clerk
as wc have been informed by a faithful Af
rican who blacked our boots at a quarter a
pair, that they were good enough for Yankee
Radicals. The same spirit o"f disloyal hate
was manifested to us m the dining room,
where, in response to our repeated call for
codfish and pumpkin pie, wc were served
with nothing but bacon and hot cakes. We
asked why this was done, and were told by a
loyal waiter, to whom-we had just given a
postal half dollar, that Mr. Spottswood said
he didn't keep a hotel for the accommoda
tion of Yankees, and, tlujrcfore, persistently
excluded codfish and pumpkin pies from the
bill of fare. Your committee do not deem
it necessary to dwell upon this evidence of
smouldering disloyalty, nor to compare it
with the hastily formed opinion of General
Grant respecting Southern sentiment. Our
object was to get beneath the surface of
things in the South, to find the true charac
ter of the social sub-stratum. Wc remained
in Richmond a few days, to study the char
acter of the people. On all hands wc found
evidences of distinctions on account of color,
except in a freedman's colony, where the
blacks received the whites on an equal foot
ing with themsehes. We also noticed a
disloyal disposition to speak of. Stone
wall Jackson and General Lee in terms
of praise and commendation, white General
Butler's name was only mentioned in con
temptuous connection with silver spoons, and
occasionally a little plated-ware, and he him
self seemed to be better known as tho Bottlo
Imp of Bermuda Hundred, than in any
" Our next visit was to Atlanta, Georgia.
Here wo had a long consultation with a
treasury agent, who had had ainplo means of
information on the subject of Georgia loyal
ty. He gave it as his opinion that to admit
the Southern States to representation at this
time, would be highly injudicious. He
did not believe there was a whitu native of
the State loyal enough to take his place, and
asserted that to remove him .and others
similarly situated, would be not only danger
ous to the welfare of the country, but would
also be theheight of ingratitude to men who
had risked character and reputation for tliu
patriotic cause of cotton and ten or twelve
thousand dollars a year. .Your committee
concurred entirely in his opinion.
" While in Atlanta your committee heard
many expressions of sentiment which go to
show how far General Grant is mistaken in
what he says in his late report. On one oc
casion especially we heard what convinced
us that the lava of secession still burned in
the Southern bosom. The case was that of
a young gentlemen from Massachusetts, of
poor but honest parents, who had come to
the South, in the capacity of a frcedmen's'
school teacher. He had casually made tho
npnnaintnnen of a Southern ladv of two
score and ten, whose husband had lallen un
der the rebel flag, leaving her a widow of
handsomo estate. The young gentleman,
desirous of matrimony and plantations,
pressed his suit, and was progressing, as he
thought, most favorably, when one evening
the widow told him at a tea party, in the
presenco of a large number of people, "that
she'd rather be buried alive than marry a
Yankee." The patriot school teacher no
longer plies the rod of chastisement over
refractO."y frecdmcn. The star of his hopc
has gone'down, and he has gone back to
Boston, a wreck of his former self.
" Your committee next went to Montgom
ery, Alabama, where, as at Richmond, the
colored citizens flocked to meet us, and vied
with each other for the carrying of our bag
gage. Wc paid them fifty cents a carpet
sack from the depot, and they were enthu
siastic in their demonstrations of loyalty in
receiving tho currency from tw. In this
city evidences of disloyalty met us on every
hand. A Vermont missionary had been in
sulted a few days before our arrival, for at
tempting to introduce 'John Brown's Body,'
and ' We'll hang Jeff Davis on a Sour Ap
ple Tree,' as Sabbath School hymns. A hop
had just taken place at the leading hotel, to
which white only were Invited, and to
which the freedmen were excluded on ac
count of color. The consequence was an in
their character, will lead to Jamaica insur
rection and' Hayticn rebellions, magnified
a thousand times in their dreadful result.
At Montgomery, as at Atlanta, we met a
Treasury agent who was opiKwed to imme
diate reunion, and warmly in favor of a ter
ritorial condition for the Southern States.
Ho mentioned incidentally that he had a
son-in-law in New Hampshire who would
make an excellent Provisional Governor,
and a cousin who wonld do fbir a territorial
delegate to Congress, Above all things he
hoped Congress would not llctcn to the hy
pocritical cries of Alabama loyalty. He as
auretl us that there was no loyalty in the
State, except in hiir office, and naid it would
be base injustice to supersede' him till he had
finished the making of a hundred thousand
"We next proceeded to Charleston, South
Carolina. Here we had a long interview
with a Northern gentleman whom we knew
to be in every way reliable. He had re
sponded to his coontryVi call, in the early
days of the war, and had been unvarying in
his devotion to tho cause ever since, except
at intervals when General Grant had or
dered rattlers to the rear. Since the cessa
tion of armed hostilities ho has has been
down South to see what could be done in the
way of buying Southern land. He has
found the people of South Carolina so rcbcl
liousat heart as to refuse their pla ntation for
twenty cenU an acrf in federal currency. 11c
convinced t that tin armed force ought to
be kept in Charlaton for. many years to
come, and that he ewghttobe appointed sut
ler, as he lm had much cxpcncnce in the
business. He found in this hot-bed of Mces
ion and cradle of rebellion, a decided pre
ference for gray oyer blue, which extended
itself even to the ladies' petticoats, many of
which your committee carefully examined.
It is proper to state that the articles thus
Bcrntintxed were hanging on a line to dry,
and had no-ladies in them.
Ycur Committee next visited Savannah,
where they found disloyalty manifesting it
self unmistakably on all sid-ef. Wo met an
agent of the Freedmen' Bureau, who gtve
it as hut opinion thai tho war was only naif
over, and that nates the powers of the Bu
reau were ealwged to m to give Mm con

Cost or our Present TnrtH.
From tho Chicago Times.
In our financial columns for several weeks
past there havo been statements made, with
careful reference to facts appearing in con
nection with them, denionstratihqj the oppres

lic debt." As the facts and figures sustain
ing thia statement were in the article refer
ral to, it is unnecessary here to reproduce
them. It is enough to say in this connection
that the statement, rested on the assumption
that tho average duty on imports of forchm
dry goods, was about 441 per cent. in. gold,
or 6(5 per cent, in currency, which, added
to the aggregate amount of goods consumed,
would make the sum stated. Those who
question the correctness of the assumption
iiuiM snuw mat wc m.tiuu iuc average oi uie
duty to be greater than it was, or the amount
consumed to Iks larger than it was. Failing
in this, they must concede: tho correctness of
It is remembered that this enormous tax
upon the people resulted merely from the
consumption of dry good. How they were
affected otherwise by a protective tariff was
shown in the extract from the letter of Mr.
Tappen, general freight agent of the Chicago
and Northwestern railroad, detailing the
causes for the high rates of freight charged
by tho road. These he alleged to be the in
creased, cost of locomotives, rails, spikes,
castings', oil, and of all railway supplies.
Nearly all of the articles named by Mr. Tap
pen are subject to a high tariff, and could be
purchased at reasonable prices under a low
rate of dutv.
But the magnitude of the tax imposed on
the people by a high tariff is not fully stated
even in the financial articles to which wc
have referred. The effect of the tariff was
for a long time to exclude articles coming in
competition with those so extensively man
ufactured in this country as nearly to supply
the demands of trade. Our manufacturers
consequently were not content with adding
merely the duty of 441 per cent, in gold
equal to 06 per cent, in currency to the
cost and fair profits of their manufactures,
but finding themselves gnarded against com
petition, they added much more. This is
shown by the subjoined extract from the New

To ascertain how much more we have
paid for the whole amount of dry goods con
sumed in the country than we would have
paid without a tanlf, we must contrast what
they would havo cost under free importa
tions with the prices which have ruled. Tho
manufacturers of New England grew so cx
horbitant that during the past year prints
could be imported at a profit, notwithstand
ing the enormous tariff They havo found
it also to their intcrcft not to run their mills
up to their full capacity. In keeping tho

the operations of such a tariffthe manufac

come under the internal tax laws, what pro
portion docs the amount paid by theme bear
to that which the people pay in the increased
cost of the goods they are compelled to pur
chase? Wo have shown that in the past
year this increased cost amounted to a sum
equal to one-eixth of our entiro public debt.
If the advocates of protection will ascertain
the amount of internal tax paid by the
manufacturer, and deduct it from this sum,
theywill then discover the manner in which
the nation is helped to pay its indebtedness
under the pre!nt system. This, assuming
which i3 far from being true that tho in
creased cost of our goods has been only the
'average duties imposed by the tariff.
The protectionists must yield their pre
tence that a high tariff is necessary as a
measure for revenue. It would Ixs far more
manly in 'thern to bring forward and rely
upon the eld threadljare argument of pro
jection. The present difficulties are but in
creased by tho tribute which tho nation is
obliged to pay to the cotton lords of New
England. T,neyare tu irapndent as ava

From the IVcw York World.
Ithough Mr. Seward is in no high sense
a statesman, he is a politician of consummate
cunning. His vovago through the West
Indies into the South Atlantic is a master
stroke of craft. He ha caused it to be
trumpeted to the four winds that this voyngu
has no political significance, and we art
bound to believe him on grounds as unques
tionable as those alleged by Cicero, (who
was as great a wit as orator! when, calling nl
the uoor ot a senator and being told bv the
servant that his master was not at home,
replied, with great apparent nainte, " that
is certainly true, for I just overheard him
tell you so." It is given out that this voyage
is undertaken for purely recuperative "rea
sons, Mr. Seward's physician havingadvL-ttl
it. We do not doubt that the American
Secretary's physician is a complaisant a
was tho llonian Senator's valet, nor have we
any suspicion that this voyage in search of
health wa3 prompted or'suggestcd by Presi'
dent Johnson, who is a straight-forward
statesman not addicted to refined artiace.
But persons who reflect on Mr. Seward'.
political relation will easily discover that
his health is the handmaid of his hopes.
As an aspirant for the Presidency, Mr
Seward will be cither a competitor rith
Chief Justice Chaso for tho nomination of
tho Ilcpublican party, or a competitor with
President Johnson for tho support of the
whole country. In tho present unsettled
state of politics, he docs not clearly sec
whether a Kadica! or Conservative role will
be roost for hit advantage ; and as he could
not be in Washington during the present
month, without committing himself to one
ride or the other; it opportunely happens that
his physician discover that a voyage to the
South Atlantic is needed for the benefit of
his health. When Congress comes together
after the holiday vacation, then will bo the
tug of war. Within the ensuing two or three
weeks, the lines will be drawn, which are to
determine the future complexion of politic.
Were Mr. Seward to rcmainln Washington,
tho necessities of his position would compel
him to take Bides. lie would naturally bo
looked to as tho oracle and prompter of die
Conservative Republicans. In such a con
test as is close at hand he could not bo neu
tral ; and his position in tho cabinet would
compel him to support the President. But
to net this part would effectually estrange
him from tho Republican party a party
which he nursed into strength, and which he
has constantly felt owed him its nomination
for the Presidency. It has been his destiny
to beat the bush for others to catch tho bin!.
If tho llepublican party were capable of
fratitudc, Mr. Seward would still be it
eadcr : ho is naturally unwilling to raise a
hand for tho destruction of his own offspring ;

When Mr. Seward returns, the fog in
which the politics of tho country arc en
wrapped will have cleared away, and he will
bo better prepared to choose his side. If he
then sees that he must leave tho Cabinet, he
will identify himself with the Republican
party, and go into retirement at the profess
ed martyr ot his principles. Jim h, on tne
other hand, he judges that he ha i nothing to
hone from that party, he expects to turn thl
voyage to account in another way.
-Mr. Seward understood perfectly well that
a voyage in which he would skirt along the
Mexican coast, and probably have an inter
view at St. Thomo with Santa Anna, would
occasion a great deal or vague speculation
respecting its possiblo connection with the
empire of Maximilian. The very disclaim
ers of any political purpose, Trluch he hs
caused to be put forth, are calculated to sug
gest tho ideal They prove his ready per
ception of the interpretation which the quid
nuncs would put upon his voyage. He knows
that he haa betrayed tho Monroe Doctrine;
ho ia aware of President Johnson's fixed de
termination to support it; and sccing that
the policy of tho government is certain to
Iks changed on this subject, ho wishes it to bo

If Mr. Seward, on his return, shall judge
it expedient to identify himself with the
Radicals, he will claim no share in President
Johnson's anti-Maximilian policy, and will
stand on his poAt record, ilu Mexican
views, in that case, will take their coloring
from those of the Whig party at tho time of
our Mexican war; which was opposed be
cause it would extend our frontiers South
ward, and give the South a greater propor

Mr. Seward keeps to hi old relations, he
will defend his subservient truckling to
