negro labor to white labor, and find it better
suited to plantation purpos.es. lam in
clined to believe that the neKroes even as
free laborers are better suited to this country
than any white man, whether native or im
ported. I never have believed that any
free labor, wncttier wnne or niacK, win pro
duce as much cotton as slave labor did, but
more corn and stock will be raised in this
region in a few years than ever was, and
less cotton ; but the decrease in the amount
of cotton' "will be more than compensated by
the increase in price. Business is very brisk
in Columbus the county town of this county.
It contains a population ot about Jive
thousand. Houses, 4 both business and
private, are renting very high'thcre much
higher than they are in the interior towns in
Tennessee. Meat is cheaper here than far
ther North. I think the country will al
wavs raise enoueh meat to supply its own
wants. Pork sold here at ten cents, and
corn is now eigniy cents aiiu a uunar a
bushel. This can and will bo made a de
lightful country in a few years. The money
which the planters make will be used in im
proving their plantations, instead of being
used in the purchase of negroes as formerly.
When all this kuthern country grows ita
own provisions, and builds manufacturing
establishments sufficient to make all the
clothing which ihey need, and in order to do
tins lias to decrease tne amount oi cotton,
then nortions of the Northern States will be-'
gin to see how they have, been ,efleet$dj y

as they apprehended.. What ellect it will
have upon the Northern agricultural States,
and upon the general commercial interests
of the United. States,, is another question.
The Northern manufacturing interests will

facturers increase the price of their goods,
and realire better profits on high priced

reason the wealthy capitalists, whom jur.
Sumner represents, are not at all interested
in increasing the productions of the South,
whilst very different is the case with the
produce growers of the Northern and North
western States, who are at the same time,
consumers of the articles upon which Mr.
Sumner's constituents make such large
profits. Were the people of these Southern
States governed by the narrow and selfish

would not attempt to raiso much cotton,
because they could realize as much
money by the production of three
million tales, as bv the production
of four ox five millions of bales. Two
millions of bales at thirty ccnt3 a pound will
briher more than four millions at.ten cents a

it as many may wish to do, there is danger
that in ten years the United States will not
grow as much cotton as will be needed for
consumption in the United States, The
policy which certain politicians are advo
eating will inevitably bring about this result.
- There is good feeling existing here among
the negroes and the owners of land, and all
representations to the contrary, are, I think,
unfounded and are mnde by persons inter
ested either pecuniarily, or politically in
misrepresenting tho people of the Southern
States. The people in this region are not
having much to do with politics, but are
attending to their private aflairs. Common
losses and common sufferings in a common
cause have tended to make them very united
in feeling and sentiment. They utter but
few. if any, complaints at the rejection of
their delegates to. Congress and are disposed

From tho Memphis Appeal.)
A system of Southern niantjtVic, broad
enough to. convert every stattte jrrowa in'
SontSern soil into &ricaied ferns, is the
only foundation upon which a prosperous.
future, can be conatxacted. Sack a' sy4m
has always been, with many! of our tJoefct-
ful vriters aad atataamoc. a'sabeet of fod
consideration. 'But a culpable wertaess of
charaefer, and the, easy affiueece artaag-
from familkr processes of agriculture, made
tlie. scheme, for all practical purpose a
mere test ibr day-dreaaas. That foiW of
asriculture k nast. the obnoxious latbor
.which informed it is dead, and bw,the.
actuations ot sdr-developuMHt, aad the as
'surance.ef heavy dividends, eq tally seScit
tha people at home, and .the' eaptta&ts
abroad, to.the subject of Southern laanufac'
tories! It is'a matter of etfrwua gpocnktfan,
that Northern capital, so proverbially alert,
eager, and sagacious, has net' before now,
sunk a shaft into this golden- mine. We are
acquainted With no field of enterprise, which
otters fairer promises of fruitful returns.,
Judged by the considerations which, enter
into the estimate of such matters, it act
hazardous to allege, that manufactories at
the South 'should yield richer profits than
anywhere else in the United Stale. These,
considerations deal with but a single ques
tion, ana that is the question ot cose in
tho solution ef thiSj three things present
themselves as determining forces. They are,
motive power, the price of crude material,
,and climate. With reference to, the first, the
South may safely challenge comparison.
In the brawling constituency of her moun
tain slieams, she possesses a water capacity
of unsurpassed magnitude. Amid tho brok
en regions of Virgtnia and East Tennessee,
and in northern Alabama, and Georgia, she
has a motive power furnished to hand by
nature, able to turn ten thousand milk. If
steam is preferred to water, shc.can provide
the Ore from which to forge tieongines, and
the coal to drive them when they are made.
Concerning the price of 'raw material,
there is obviously no room for debate. We
crow the stuff we design to fabricate. The
factors may literally overlook the cotton
they are destined to' weave, the hemp they
aro destined to twist; the- tobacco they ate
intended to press, and the sugar they are
appointed to granulate. They arc at 'oar
very door, and thus the cost of transporta
tion, which sways so potently tha general
result, is reduced to a nominal significance.
When we explore the matter of climate.
we arc yet more forcibly arrested by argu
ments, winch, advocate a preference, in
favor of tho South. In her vemal
temperature, lie considerations of deci
sive pith, and moment. Uhe question
of climate includes to, a, large extent
the cost of living, and the cost of-living in
volves in ari equal .degree, th6 point in dis- j
cussion. An operative can live cheaper in a j
warm, than in a cold climate, because in the
former, the great necessities of Ufa. appeal to
him in a less rigoroug aspect.. Those neces
sities arc food, clotrrtng, fuel, and house-'
room. Now in a. high latitude, these things
necessarily arise m an expensivtfonn. Ex
treme cold requires nutriciou3T food, warm
clothing, abundance of fuel, aifd' close, costly
houses. In a low latitude, the very reverse
of this is the case. Tho short, mild, and
open winters, and the long summers, render
necessary a less nntricious diet, lei and
cheaper clothing, a smaller amount of fuel,
and a much, simpler habitation.
We eouefcule, therefore, that in all the-el-eaients
nrhieh concern the question, the
South can manufacture Hioe,clwaply than.
the Nerth. ' Standing m the fail Mfhi of
"skU fcat.'it is ui'jiuioui' wot tws mil oil ta
'hopeTtliat we shall pluck mtmm ir'kdi-'-!
tional lethargy, and luluu mm aeoUny wbkm
beckons us fn. Heretofore, our eloquence
has expended itself in complaint. Hereafter,
let it assume the incarnate farm of action.
We Iraye descried in. bootless declamation,
the, abject manner in winch wc have, submit
ted to be pensioners upon Northern' energy,
when all the while, the means of emancipa
tion lay in our grasp, inert, and rusting.
The gods help those who help themselves,
and if we havo not the will, when we havo
the power, to lift ourselves from bondage, let
us at least have the grace to bear our vassal-a'-e
with tacit meekness.
Asricnlturc la the Sovith.
from the Memphis Appeal.
Many of our Southern contemporaries
arc engaged in urging planters against,
planting too much cotton, to the neglect M.
Other farm products. Wc infer from tfik,
that the old cotton mania has retaken pos
session of our people. If so, we apprehend,
that the still small voicoof the newspapers;
will bo little heeded. If the experience Of
the four years passed under strict seclusion
from the rest of the country, compelling, the
South to developc and rely' upon, hex own
resources, is not sufficient to convince the
Southern people of the impolicy of stinting
and slaving themselves in order that the
worldmay have cheap cotton, then would i
they not believe though bne should rise from;
Great as has been the devastation of the
South by tha war, tho lesson 'taught by it
would compensate its ravages, if our people
would but consider and profit by it: That
lesion, we had supposed, was so plain and
palpable, so clearly elucidated and brought
home to the observation of every one, that
it could not bo forgotten during this genera
tion at least. That lesson was, that the
South has all the means of positive inde
pendence within herself and that she may
grow richer by donble, in growing one-third'
or one-fourth leas cotton. Wheat, corn, all
the cereals in fact, in amnio abundance for
home consumption, can do grown all over
the South, while her Undeveloped mineral
resources are abundant beyond belief. Never
was there a country that so beseechingly in
vited man to diversify his labor; asd we had
supposed that it was only the existence of
the institution of slavery, necessitating as it
were the production of one staple, the culti
vation of which was adapted, to the "negro's
skill and intelligence, that could, have in
duced any people to turn a deaf ear to the
suggestions of Nature. To fall back now,
into tho old channel of raising only cotton,
buying everything elie, will bo little better
The outside world, we freely grant, Is very
much interested in having large crops of
eheaj) cotton ; but'we of the South are infin
itely more concerned in improving "and de
veloping the natural capabilities' of oaf coun
try. Instead of large cotton plantations, we
want small Well cultivated, well stocked,
well improved farms, with plenty of corn,
and wine, fct.ftocks and sleek herds of our
own production. We want a diversification
of our labor, whereby, in the development ef
pur ntineval wealth, awl in the Mamifactiifes
for which our country Is so well adapted, we
may dispense, in part at least, with cotton an
a means of commanding ready money. Un
der the old order, of .thin,., the Southern
cotton planter was, in e&f-Hteugk he little
suspected it lait little more than a steward

he mvt bsuml "to p irk wfe. and ,hcnee was
under the necessity of furnishing with emz

rendered it difteult t be atjy thwg eke.
