FlID7Y MORNING, MAY 29. 1868.
The Bayou Sara Ledger recommends a con
rention of the newspaper publishers and
editors of the country press of the State. The
Baton Rouge Gazette and Comet seconds the
proposal and indicates Baton Rouge as the
place at which the convention should be held,
and the Fourth of July as the day. But why
limit the call to the country press ? Other
country papers suggest that a general con
vention be held at New Orleans, and this ap
pearsito be the more practical proposition.
The questions which may p-operly come be
fore such a body for consideration are of uni
versal interest, and they cannot be properly
treated,or decided except after consultation
among the members of the whole press of the
State. The approaching political contest will
be the most important in the history of the
country, and it Louisiana is to participate
in it, there should be harmony if de.sign, con
gruity of polior, and unity cf action
among the Democracy of the titate. It is not
of course, assumed that the press can dictate
a policy, or a plan, to the people, but it can do
much towards a~suring such harmony and
unity as will prove effective in enabling us to
defeat the consummation of the projects of
the vagrant and mendicant carpet-baggers.
We would suggest, however, that the Fourth
of July is not the proper day for the assem
bling of the proposed convention. The Na
tional Democratic Convention meets on the
Fourth of July in New York, and on the pro
ceedings of that convention we must, to a
great extent, rely for guidance as to our sub
sequent course. After the Democratic nomi
nations shall have been made, and after the con
vention shall have suggested the course v hich
the Democracy of the country desire us to pur
sue, it would be well for us to take measures
to second their views. We therefore propose
to our country contemporaries that the press
convention be held in this city on Monday,
the 13th of July.

The "General of our Armies" likes the
Chicago platform. When the momentous docu
ment was read to him, he solemnly ejaculated
"good" at the end of each article. This
weighty monosyllable has been seized on by
the radical press as if it were something
remarkable and extraordinary. Anything

Butler has not had the right witness, as
yet, before his investigating committee. So

body, and who wa' one of the first persons

COUMNECIAL AND A ICULTURAL PROS
Fortune can never be bankrupt while hope
is among its assets. That the disappoint
ments and disasters suffered, within the past
three years, by our merchants and agricultur
ists, did not plunge them into irremediable
insolvency, was due solely to the saving pres
ence of hope. We do not mean the imbecile
optimism, or the indolent fancy, which some
times steals the garb of this healing, invigor
ating and wonder-working sentiment. The
hope that we mean is simply the logic of the
future. It paints in its perspective nothing
whose form and color are not drawn from
those two elements at the basis of all history.
time and nature. In these respects our com
mercial and agricultural interests are endowed
in an extraordinary degree. Their wealth of
hope is a capital which folly has not been able
to waste, nor rapacity to plunder, nor ma
lignity to destroy.
One of the brightest features of the com
mercial prospect before us is the converging
tendency, constantly increasing, of the grain
trade of all parts of the Mississippi valley to
New Orleans. as the natural seaport for the
produce of States and territories lying bo
tween the Alleghany and Rocky Mountain
ridges. W1e have heretofore pointed out at
considerable length some of the reasons for
such a convergence, and we will not now
enlarge on the same topic. Of more imme
diate conoern to the greater portion of our
merchants is a survey of the situation in
neighbiring agricultural districts. lHer, we
tind, judging from all the accounts thit reach
us, that the people lveo adopted a wise me
dium between two extreme and equall' perni
cious policies; th, policy which proposed
to ccntinue, under conditions entirely
ntovel, and in grest lart the reverseT
of those which they superseded, the old plan
tation system, for the admost exclusive prodl
tion of otton or sugar, and the poliy wLich
proposed to turn away from everything like
extended planting, to rclinqu(ish the cultiva
tion of the above staples as specialities of
Southern agriculture, and to risk all on the
issue of universal experiment with Indii.ui
corn, wheat, potatoes, fruit, and the like.
Events had upset the plantation -ystem, as
formerly crganaized and carried on, and it w.r;
sheer infatuation to think of perpetuatinL- it ;
b,'t it did not follow that those who had
worked under this system should precipitately
and utterly renounce its products as well as
its methods. New methods they w, re coru
pelled to adopt : but there was no nectssity
for the entire substitution of new products.
It was, at the best, an empirical specific for
the hardships incident to industrial disturb
ance and change. They could not aflrd to
take the hazard of trying it. To have done
so would not have been in the spirit of legiti
mate enterprise, but in the spirit of gambl n,.
Climate, and soil. and salient facts of com
merce indicated clearly enough the direction
fr agriculture in this part of the South to
take, and they wisely shaped their plans, as
far as circumstances would admit, accord.
ingly. It would appear, in other words, that,
while resolved, the present year, to produce
an abundance of food crops for home
subsistence, and, in some instances,
for the local markets, they have refrained
from attempting to compete with the West,
the North and the Pacific coast in supplying
the general market of the world with bread
stuffs and meats. However great may be the
demand abroad for these commodities, the
demand for Southern cotton and sugar is
greater, while in the production of the latter
there is no competition in the United States,
and as respects cotton none to speak of on
the whole American continent. Our agricul
turist4, in short, have determined to avoid
the perils of an excessive devotion to these
staples; but they have not, as some of their
visionary advisers would have had them to
do, committed the stupidity of ignoring both
commerce and geography, and repudiating
peculiar bounties of nature, by discarding
cotton and sugar as leading marketable pro
ducts of the South.
For the rest, accounts concur in holding
out a fair promise of the results of the present
year's agricultural operations. Freedmen
laborers give much more satisfaction than
formerly. One reason for this is, that they
have undergone a process of sifting whi,.h
has tliminated nearly all the chaff, and left in
agricultural employment a comparatively in
dustrious and reliable class. Another rea
son is the rehlief of the treedmen's minds from
a species of demnoralizing uncertainty as to
their civil and political status, a mental con
dition care fully cultivated by the carpet-bag
gers for their own purposes. The late elhc
tions have done, at least, some service in
greatly abating this cause of demoralization.
On the whole, therefore, if our comrumere::a
community have hard lines before them for
the impending summer, they have Lr,,i
grounds to anticipate no small degree if con
pensatiotn from the results of the present
y-ar's agricultural operations.
