LABOll EOR Tllll SOUTH.
Tho experlonco of tho past four years
has demonstrated that tho movement
looking to the introduction of Chinese
laborers into tho South is one upon tho
success of which largely depends tho
redemption of that section from tho ruin
und devastation created by the war. It
has, been, ascertained that free negro la
bor cannot bo depended upon: that tho
resident whlto labor is unequal to tho do-

Tho provnllingindolenco und shiftless-
Hess among tho blacks aro churgeablo to
tho carpet-baggers from tho North. They
have instilled into tho minds of that
oredulotis pcoplo that their old masters
nro their enemies: that freedom means
Idleness, and that their cervices while in
slavery entitles to u homo and a compe
tency for tho future. Gradually tho
the black pcoplo are opening their oyes
to these cheats and delusions; but tho
undeniable fact still remains tho South
can never recover her wonted prosperity
und wipe out tho havoc .worked upon her
Industrial pursuits by tho war, while she
depends upon the labor of tho blacks
within her borders. That end can bo
gained, und right speedily, through the
Chinese labor movement now on foot.
It is said that the negroes aro becoming
alurmcd at the magnitude of the move
ment and at the probability it presents
that they will bo cftt oil' by their old
masters and thrown upon tho bauds of
their hypocritical friends from the North.
This U probably true. If it is, tho cUticts
will bo most salutary. Tho blacks should
be taught that they aro not all-Important
to the South; aud when it is shown that
tho cotton, rice aud tobacco can be
grown moro successfully and profitably
without their help than with it; when
sltuutlons for them ceaso to go begging,
und when, instead, if they desire employ

Upon tho whole, we regard the Chinese

To the Editor of the 1 HVrW-Siu: The
New York 'Tribune and the 'Times' do
mo a great Injustice In their notice of tho
reunion of thu officers of the army of tho
Gulf, at Long Uranch, Now Jervy. They
assert that I insulted the association to
whost banquet I was invited, by tho allu
sion I made to tho leaders of tho confed
erate army. I did not lntond to wound
the feelings of those who had honored
me with an invitation to participate In
their festivities; nil the contrary, It was
a compliment to our army to speak well
of those over whom our army had tri
umphed, as "foemen worthy of our
steel.'' My intention and meaning could
only havo been porverted by men who
had been taught by such heroes as liutler
to relish a dlH'erent kind of steal,
I was urged to attend this meeting and
ImiHiuot, and declined to do so until a

It Is uot "the fashion" hero now for
ladles to rear families; In fact, to becomo
a mother is for a woman to disgrace her
self. It is annoying; keeps her at homo;
prevents her participating In tho whirli
gig of fashionable life; and necessitates
hercomparatlvo retirement from socloty.
Hence we find women wliliug to ruin
their constitutions, and even to court
death, rather than fulfill the maternal
duties. It's "tho fashion!" To aid in
keeping up this fashion wo havo four
hundred and soventeon professional abor
tionists in this city; men who drive fast
horse, wear big dlumonds, buy brown
stone houses, and live "fast" generally.
Isn't this a nice army of murderers for
they aro nothing better. Thoy advertise
their willingness to commit Jiutrder, and ,
thev do it: for many u mother, us well us
her child has beeu sent to an early gravo

Wo uro glad to annouueo that tho
board of cpunty commissioners, at their
mooting yesterday, ordered tlio remain
der of tho bonds ($250,000) voted to the
Mississippi WverBailroad, to bo turned
over forthwith to tho officers of that com
pany. Tills Important road is to bo put
under contract within a week, and the
action of tho board was almost too long
delayed for tho public interest.
Win. II. Greenlaw, ono of tho direc
tors of the Mississippi Elver road, went
before the board, with tho prcsidont, Co
lonel Mitchell, and thetreosnrcr, W. II.
Cherry, esq., and mndo an earnest an-
peal to the board to carry out promptly
their contract of subscription. Mr.
Greenlaw, us ono of the parties whoso
name is attached to tho injunction bill
recently filed against tho board, olalmod
to know something of his own interest
as a lax-payer iu Memphis and Shelby
county, and the interest of others of like
views with himself, und hedeclured that
he had yet to moot tho first tax-payer
who was opposed to tho subscription to
the Mississippi Itiver road, or who did
not wish tho board of commissioners to
carry it out iu good faith. For his own
part ho would, as a tax-payer, rather havo
the subscription $000,000' than C0a,000
if theiarger sum were needed to com
mote tho roudf In conclusion Mr. Green
law said it was useless to expect Colonel
Mitchell, to proceed further with hia en
terprise, so prosperous up to thla point,
unless tlio resources for building the
road were at once put into his hands.
Mr. Cherry, on inquiry from a member
of the bourd, added his testimony to
wlmt ho Relieved to bo tho popular de
mand for the road. It would bo very
bad faith toward all tho counties above
that have sulMcrlbed to tho rood to have
Shelby county delay completing her
subscription at this lato hour.
Tlio board, at tho conclusion of tho dis
cussion, ordered the bonds to be turned
over to tho railroad company, and iu
this matter havo made n record which
will alwuys be remembered to their
