We presume that Judge Hei is the person meant-but after all it S 'but little difference, as either by one e or the other, this intinerant "loyalist" n io no sense a representative of New Orleans. r the sagacious radicals no doubt St:that, although the orator claimed ews-e a as his home, "his land" was "~ sa' t is to say, that he was 1 m m~iitrtat home on a rostrum, before a _adieaaotCadence in New Jersey, than he ever could Ma been in any part of Lonisiana. In blapang remarks our traveling "loyalist" eahred.that there was "a great want of free i"'n ew Orleans." This is a remarkable a laistanoe of vanity and egotism, even fqr a '>Southern "loyalist" of the fugacious kind. TL.heIt·le very little want of Heistand, it is true; b~il it by no means follows that there is, therefore, a want of freedom. Indeed, this very gentleman never in his life enjoyed as nmuhe freedom as in Louisiana, from the time hen he: took the liberty of searching the 1 houses of poor school-mistresses for evidences of . 'I"tyaty;" "down to the time wirfen he as sumed the right of arresting and imprison j l alsens, under the civil rights bill, for offensies and imaginary crimes. of freedom, together with unlimited to vilify and slander the people of the !heclaints for his home,-seems to t his ides of liberty. It is not won that he finds the society of his radical 2 ds more siiitpats'etic and congenimh than "; atofthe citizens of Lonisiaha.

In a general way Rieardo has constructed a theory of rent which is con sidered axiomatic among political economists. SWe agree with the political economists, and shall leave Ricardo and his theory to the de lectation of that astute class of philosophers We design, in this crisis of the great struggle for house-room, to perplex our readers with s profound disquisitions on a question which now presents itself in the eminently practical form of "your greenbacks or your life." For, we take it for granted that one of the necessi ties of humanity in this advanced stage of - human existence-urbanly considered at least-is to have a resting place within four e walls from the weary labors of the day. Hence, from thid point of view, it would seem e that a reasonable answer to the question, "what is rent ?" would be that rent is simply the sum of money which houseless people it have to pay in order to supply thatdeficiency. ; But there is a persistent tendency in the popu lar mind not to put up '.tk simple explan - tions. People seem never to be satisfied with what they can understand. It is the same spirit which once demanded a miracle, and which believes only what is obviously impossible. It is not surprising therefore, that people have come to believe that rent, so far from being merely a price paid for house-room, is really a very unjustifiable, odious and tyran nical impost, levied by the avaricious and adamantine class of landlords on the op pressed and long suffering class of tenants. In popular estimation the typical landlord is the roaring lion of society, perpetually on the rampage to pick up victims for his de vouring fangs. Personally, he may he a very good person; he may be tender to his wife, kind to his children, considerate to his neigh bors; a faithful friend, a good citizen, an honest man. But divest him of his person ality; abstract him from the class homo, and incarnate him simply as a landlord, a man who has houses and stores to rent, and popu lar fancy transforms him into a raging.and pitiless ogre. And why? Simply because rents have risen to an unprecedented height, and the landlord is held responsible for the heavy, draughts which are thus made on the financial capacity of the community. But the fact is that house owners, strange as it may appear, are not, necessarily, either roaring lions or hungry ogres. And, stranger still, s they are not responsible for the rise of rents any more than the cotton planters are respon sible for the rise of cotton, or a corn grower for the price of grain. The same general t causes which govern prices in one case, govern them in the other case. The great law of supply and demand, which is more inexora ble than the Median and Persian laws of t old, and quite as insuperable as the laws of celestial or terrestrial mechanics, is the responsile agent. The fact is, that the supply of houses for domestic purposes, and stores for commercial purposes, falls far short of the demand, and hence rents must inevit ably rise. The law may be harsh; it may be cruel ; but, nevertheless; it is law, and the landlords did not make it. They benefit by it to be sure; and when, in consequence of an increased supply of houses, rents fall again, tenants will derive advantage frono the inverse operation of the law. And here we must take occasion to correct an impression I which, like all prejudices, is fraught with niisnhief, that the high rents are due to a usur pption sof houses, by "worthless negroes." Were it even true that our negro population has seriously encroached on us in this way, the fact should be regarded as an indication of unexpected industry and thrift on the part l of that class, from which so little was ex pected, rather than used to stimulate unjust resentanents and unkind feelings. If negroes sl occupy any large number of houses, they mnst pay the rent ; and if they pay the rent, they mast exercise some sort of productive and as remunerative industry. To suppose that they r can continue for any length of time to steal a living from the community without working "i for it is to credit themn with being a good dcil cI] smarter than white folks. But the truth is, any that the vast majority of the negro population "ti live in quarters and in houses not ait all likely er to bofrequented by white people. Certainly or theyhave not taken up the spacious commelll. cial edifices on Canal and Carondclet street, :t the long rows of stores in Common, Ca ip, C i, Graveir, Magazine and Teholt upitoulS sitrec, - the offices in Exchange Place and Union a n street, and it is precisely in these districts that rents have risen to their greatest heigh it - in many cases to two and three hundred per tij cent. above the highest poit which they had Cti reached before the war. Ini to It is utterly futile, in treating this question, s- to go hehind the main thet--that rents are le high because there is not house room enough ry for either domestic or commercial purposes. ,n To speculate on the final cause of the de I, ficiency will not aid in solving that most to difficult of all problems, "'how to bhale a thing cheap when it is scarce and in great de mand?" When cotton goes up in conse of uence of a short crop, people do not mur of mur at the cotton planter. They sinmply wait for a larger crop, and the competition which high prices must bring to increase the te supply, and thus restore the disturbed equilibrium. The only solution of this rent problem, which now so terribly distresses and perplexes our people, is to be found in the f building of more houses-a solution which we presume will ultimately be reached. For it the last five years there has been absolutely t nothing done in the way of building in New s Orleans,' and yet our population, we really believe, ief at least twenty-five per cent. n greater than it. ever has been. "Why there e was nothing done in the way of impervemenet during . the wnlr is plain enough. Why nothing is done now is not so clear. The - causes, prolbably, arc d many and various. lBut whatever they may be, o it is to be hoped that they will not long eon p tinue to act. If, in the present condition of affairs, high rents.are a necessity, they are no less a serious embarrassment, and, in too e many cases, an unbearable burthen. The e poorer people, especially, are *he sufferers, it not only in the great sums which they are a thus compelled to pay for mere house room, d but in the enhanced price of all thecommodi 1 ties which high rents entail. There is, how ever, a method by which the industrial classes a can, to some extent, relieve themselves fromnt e the immense weight which now presses on a them. It is not by simply taking possession I of other men's property and refusing to pay - for it, nor even by refusing to live in houses t t at all, and camping out in the streets and highways, but simply by forming building associations on the plan of those which have been so successful in some of the other great t cities of the world. In a future article we s shall try to explain the nature and objects of these associations. and their plan of opera tions. t Mazzini is styled, in France, the duke of ti Utopia. o .lfty YFe ua nl the lew World. -_4 ( NtMIJEE r oUT. We do not know what may have been the d impressions of other people who.n first start I- ing into the wide world, but for ourselves we I can only say that life was so buoyant with us e at the age of fifteen, when first we left the th paternal roof and embarked under the guardi eh auship of strangers, that we never inquired sh about what might be our fate in far away ,A climes, among foreign people, and distant from home, family, friends and relations. of Such were our feelings to see with our own at eyes the wonders and marvels of which we had read in books and recitals of travelers and . navigators; Robinson Crusoe, Christopher Co humbus, Cook, the great circumnavigator of our globe, Levaillant, the adventurous traveler of the interior of Africa-all these had left an unquenchable desire in our youthful mind to travel and see foreign countries, but more es pecially the American States, or what then were universally called the New World, in con tradistinction of the old continent comprising it Europe, Asia and Africa, as historically known. h Hence, when we found ourselves after long preparations, which had lasted indeed from the preceding month of November, 1515, to the month of May, 1816, fairly launched upon the ocean, we then began to realize our posi tion, and to actually enjoy our flight as a bird d into unknown regions and climates. As long as we had preserved land in sight, it seemed to us that we might still be recalled to the long known confines of our native place, and our irresistible longing was for the unlimited Shorizon which we found only when at sea and not a spec of land could any longer be dis y cerned. - Now, as we said before, perhaps the same sentiment may not be felt by other youths generally, but we cordially confess that the idea of leaving brothers, sisters, father, mother, and so many other cherished friends and kindred, did not weighin the balance one I moment, nor with regarcto the consideration that we would have to stay, perhaps whole t lengths of years, in foreign lands, far away from our accustomed playing grounds and e familiapleasure surroundings. It was then this ardent desire which animates so many L individuals to seek in the travels 'of foreign y countries, a satisfaction or means to accumu late their stock of scientific experience, their actual knoweldge of mankind and nations, which brought us to the shore of the Missis sippi; where now we are drawing these r sketches and impressions, in order to trans mit to others our youthful and primitive sen sations experienced some fifty years ago. The mere changes in so many modern im f provements since that period, it seems to us, alone ought to impart some interest to these long past reminiscences, for in this respect, they must perform nearly the office of a voice that'would come back, as it were, after such a long lapse of time-that is half a seculum wafted from over the rolling of the great At lantie ocean's waves, and we shall therefore continue our course of desultory narrative. by When leaving the mouth of the river lbe, of which is quite a considerable stream at its fall effiux into the North Sea or Gernfan Ocean, the you find yourself immediately in one of the we most agitated parts of the great northern ex ion panse of waters. True, the sealis not very 'ith deep, and in the vicinity of the low lands of north Germany, or what was formerly s, called Frieslan'd, and further on, the Dutch or on Holland islands dyked in, and thus rendered 7, productable for the inhabitants, the pilots or on navigators can always ascertain 'their where srt abouts by merely casting the load and examin ing the ground brought up from the bottom, bt for according as this is either gravel, sand, t es shells, etc., the maps and charts will indicate I st your position; but as for the native pilots and e. fishermen in these seas they need no maps, eIl ald know by mere inspection of the up dirawn lead their exact situation. lut It t although this arm of the Northern Ocean, which stretches indeed as fer north as the icape north of Norway, is near the Germani and Dutch shores of no considerable d"pLth 1 ustill are the waves often lushed into the greatest fury after a succession of northerly t or westerly winds, so that we hive been wit nesses of' soae of the siublitlcst spectacles in ci the weorld, with regard to these wild scenes of i to -sing ocetan, being ai it were lilke a itmd 'iant iu a fur'y, and dashing- an' d shaoiing ecvery thing around and upon its surfhee. These scenes of sublime oceanic furor ihane aiten been represented upon canvass; but to I ci , enjoy, for that is the word, these hardly con- tit c ceivable images, one must have been in the g, midsst of their very tossing rage and fury. it , Now, again, it depends, no doubt, upon the to i different temperaments to look upon these sit Is gigantic spectrcles of nature in differentl a, lights; but if we have to forms an idea of wihat sri really constitutes the attraction of a naviga t tor's or sailor's life, it is this ever present spectacle of the superior natural forces or lth powers so very conspicuous; whilst our mo- ex notoanous or routine course of business life on Fi shore offers no such an ever present ad-moni- di tion. Indeed, compare the life of a dweller tlu of one of our great cities to that of a sea-fsring an sman, snid you will perceive that the first is le, surrounded every day by the works of hadi- ,,f craft, by tlhe incessant toil of the crowds of fe' nie , the edifices, manufhctures, and mnlti- no f trious occupations of mankind: in facti he , saces almost nothing but what has issued, or been fashioned or created by the hand of Ils, fellow-tman; hence, he concludes that man, its anid the works f lan or s e rociety, are alone i Itl, important and govern the world. Not so with is the imen that go to the deep waters. True, t il they conlide themselvres ' t he water-craft, oif citber a stastinc stiling ship or some os cet ll steamer--both works of skillfnl artizan -but ins: whtroe- theoco'ss to lc .i ht of land they I then lknowt that other powers than tho.et . of lnan govern the oe:ait, tihe waters, tS i vast expanse ttcrlbw ind above. Wit all our modern tscience and experience, the seataring man is of foirced to acknowledge a dependence upon tii natural powers which lie cannot fathoml . il hlence he resigns himself ; he believes in ber supernatural agencies, and no matter that lit their names or appellations, he is brought to sh, acknowledge his dependence upon them., t S This position is very different front the dweller fort of the great city centers, who, in his securityv, thinks he need not invoke a superior P'ower : tri snay, who almost imagines the woreld can dis- irsl pease with any thing like a governing Provi- q' denee. Few men nwill be found addictedl to Fre the life upon the great ocean who have not tais their religious feelings revived by the ever- age active life and commotion of that clement eap which represents, indeed, the most forcibly tihe image of the great moving Power by which A the world is hopt in perpetual motion. To I detn say that the ebb and flow of the ocean is I pap brought about by the respective positions of chet the moon and sun is all very well ; but who, thre then, causes the primitive incitement to this and regular or tidal motion, if it be not that celes- on t tial movement which is hardly perceptible in sold our great human centers, but which urges I dre( itself upon our attention by the contiunual -com motion of the restless ocean wayv ? Such a spectacle, beheld every dy. brings he about, other thou-hts and other ways of feel rt- ing. HIence, also, the people of a seafaring we life generally differ entirely from the gone s irality of-the terra Oirma ilnhabitants. They he have not that feeli:ng of egotism which is in i some respects a sort of continual defnose ed against the never-ceasing aosaults of i covert oy communism that insidiously assails the nt dwellers of our communnities. Is. The city dweller may become an adorer of en man's great self-principle-that is, his own ad sutticiency-but the man that lives upon the ad water will never believe in the principle of o_ that creed which puts man on the top ladder of of creation, and all the rest at the bottom : if er he knows no better, he feels by his surround. in ings that he is but a cipher-a nothing against to the mighty powers and agencies that govern s- the world, one part of which is in continual on commotion under his very feet; that is to a. say, the spectacle of the actual life contained ig in this wide domain teaches him the im a. mensity of that great life which activates and og rules the immeasurable universe. to 'he Cotton Crop. LEOTA, MlSS., August 18, 1l66. - Ed. Descent--Having noticed in several South d ern newspapers letters giving the views of differ g ent w.riters on the prospects and estimates of the d present cotton crop, I must confess my utter sur e prise at the large estimate placed upon the coming d yield in the United States. Many of these writers d estimate the crop at two and a half million bales. d Washington county, bordering on the Mississippi river in this State, is about the center of the fa vored cotton region of the South-and what are the filcts with respect to the amount of land planted and worked this year compared to the amount in 1860? Not exceeding one-third: I ,e doubt if nthatmuch. Some planters say one-fourth. No one estimates the yield at more than half a bale per acre on this amount of land. These re lmarks are based on personal observation and careful inquiry for several months past. I reside in what is called the Lake Washington neiglfotbhood, in the above named county; have y been a cotton planter for several years, and have d conversed with planters throughout the county-, n obtaining the result as above stated, which I hope y will be of some interest to you., SItis thought there is a larger amount of land planted in cotton is this than the adjoining coun ties, and the work of the freedmen will compare favorably with that of any part of the State. I would be glad if planters in other sections of country would comne forward and give their views on this subject. so that factors and thie country generally may fortl a correct esnimte of the present crop. How the crop can exceed one million bales, we Sare ata !soss to know. We have no information to warrant a larger estimate, and the dry weather (amounting to a drouthi for tioe past two months, will greatly damage the crop throughout this sec tion. I know many planters who expected to make a thousand bales, but on account of the drouth will not make live hundred. Few have commenced picking. for the cotton is not sntli ciently open to do moch before the 1st of Sep tember. Corn crops have suffered greatly from the long drouth, and are generall very inferior. Hoping these remarks will be of some interest to you, tam, very respectfully, yours, W. nI.
