Imploring the continued assistance of
DiviueJMnster to guide us in our work, our
we here pledge ourselves to faithful and
harmonious labor, for nil future timo to
return by our united efforts to the wisdom,
justice, fraternity aud political views of
A memorial to the Patrons of Husban
dry in the cotton States was ulso presen
ted, and unanimously adopted. It is au
argument in favor of mixed husbandry
in the South, instead of expending the
energies of the people raising a single,
crop. It says:
"During the past seven years, our cot
ton fields have added to tho wealth of
the world 82,009,000,000,' and caused
prosperity to smile upon every one who
has handled our crops, save those who
struggled for its production. Annually
the energies of the cotton planter have
been exhausted in attempting to produce
a maximum crop of a single staple, whilst
quite as frequently he hns reduced his
means in supplying his necessary wants.
A system based upon such a policy and
producing such results must be radically
wrong, and, if presisted in, will lead to
bankruptcy and ruin.
"No people can ever become prosper
ous who are not self-sustaining. Our
fertile soil, cxhaustlcss mineral wealth,
abundant water power and general salub
rious climate avail us nothing if annually
wo expend millions for subsistence. It i3
generally conceded that nomo-growu
bread is cheaper thau purchased supplies
aud tlu observation of every planter is
that those Southern farmers who live
within themselves are more independent
and less incumbercd tvith debt than those
who have relied solely upon the cotton
crop. Were it otherwise, it is hazardous
for any peoplo to rely upon others for
a supply of those articles which are neecs
sary for their daily consumption."
It then refers to the famine which
more than once hns occurred in India
owing to the efforts of the people to grow
cotton to the exclusion of bread-stuffs
"During the past year, portions of Iowa
Minnesota and Dakota have been invaded
by grasshoppers, which destroyed every
vestige of vegetation' Imagine you
condition, should n similar invasion be
como general in the North-east, and
coupled with this idea, the total fuilurc
of the cotton crop, either from worm
drouth, or any other unavoidable cause
Improbable as such visitations may a]
pear, have we the power to prevent them
And is it wise to subject ourselves to the
possibility of becoming the victims of such
calamities? Our wisest, aud safest policy
is as far as practicable to produce at
home our necessary supplies.
"Is there a farm in the South upon
which this cannot be done, and at the
same timo produce an average cotton
crop, as tho net results of the farmer
annual labor? We believe there is no
Annually 4,000,000 bales of cotton ore
produced upon Southern soil; but whatpr
portion of this vast amount, is returned to
indicate our prosperity? One-half of ib
expended for necessary supplies, whil
the remainder is divided between laboi
and taxes; hence the cost of production
has exceeded tho value of the artic
produced. Shall this continue? Extcu
sive cotton crops have evinced our unity
of purpose, and entailed poverty upon us
An equally uniform adhesion tomixed
husbandry would secure our recuperation
Cotton is necessity, nnd the extent
necessity can be calculated with exact
liess. If JJ,f>00,00() hales are grown, they
will be consumed before any other crop
can bo gathered, nnd a rcmuncrativ
market price will be sustained by the
consequent demand. If 4,000,000 bal
are grown, the large marginal exeess w
control and depress tho market. The
alternatives forsiie.ccjs arc numerous, b
we need rely upon (lie .-ingle one of co
operating in the determination to subsist
at homt: With this end attained, there is
no reason why we should not be the hap
piest, most independent and moid prospe
rous people on tl.v carilb" *
