To Me kdiiorof the hew York Timttt
In your edition of to-day I see a letter from a
New Orleans correspondent, which has filled
me with surprise and patn. It assumes to ar
raign, and, I thiol, Ignoraotlj condemns Gen.

My position Is this: Iownlargely-plantatlon

Interests are Indissoluble linked with tho sue
cms of freed labor. Hence I have watched
with Intense Interest the plan of Gen. Hanks,
and lis practical vrorklog. It la my dellbtrate
conviction that, considering tho complicated
dinicuttles whtcb are Inherent In the matter,
tho system of Gen. Banks is In lis aim aod de
tails the wisest and most mastcrlv that could
be devised. Like a statesman he has grasped
the whole sul Ject, and has enlisted In the suc
cess of his system tha Interests both of ibo em
ployed and employer, The general features are

that, notwithstanding tho army worm and tbo

free labor has been a comparative success. I
was one of a delegation of Louisiana planters
who recently went lo Washington to ask tbe
President that the system of freed labor as In
augurated by Gen. Uanka lu Lonlslana might
be left without Interference. Can men who
hate every opportunity for knowing and every

thus ask for the continuance of a system which,
after an experiment or two years, has not bocn

My recent visit at the North has s etlt led me
that, for some reason, Gen. Hanks has been
most grossly misrepresented here. Tho man
liness of thus vllllfylng a General ho, with
tho proud record of N. V. Banks, has been at
the distance of 1S0U miles from the public
press, devotedly risking all for his countrv. I
leave others to Judge of. But on this matter
of bis freed labor system, I have thought il
