What She Can Effect by Husbanding Her Resources. Whai she Might be by a Proper use of these Resources. Editor ApjKah TheSouthern States produce a Htiiple which claims the at tention of the world. The money to move it tx8 the banking- houses of Wall street to their utmost capacity for movable currency. Northern cities are so sensible of its commercial value that they send agents into every towo t i -.s ure the trade for th.'ir own ben efit. They know that every order is hacked by a product which is as avail able as gold itoelf. A policy is being inaugurated which transfers all the profits of trade to other sections than those in which the country is dinx-tly interested. The South has capital sufficient In her products to secure at home all those romnierriul advantages which she tan secure abroad by form ing stock company factories and ma chine shops. She has now no other objects iu which she can so profitably Invest the surplus capital which is constantly Increasing lo a wonderful extent. Has xhe forgotten that the real estate of the country is doubly I'nhaneed In value by tire growth of villager and cities which such a course oi capital would secure; that railroads und ail other publk improvements are directly the result of keeping the capital at home? Every do.lar that goea to the trade of Northern cities enhances the value of the real estate of those cities and the country around them to the deterioration of our own lands and every Interest here, which such trade there sustains. Schools, churches, public improvements of all kinds are us valuable to us as to those who depend upou our trade to secure them. Now the South has only to husbaud her resources and protect her self by her jiollcy to become a com mercial empire, having within herself all that can make her the moat desir able portion of the trlobe. Does she want enterprising producers, manufacturer-, and men to develop her vast and valuable resources, she has hot to send agents to the North and to other parts as freely as the North sends them here for onr trade, aud a aalect emigra tion would flow to us, which would benefit us and lie greatly benefited themselves. The dimctilty of secur ing the material elements of prosper ity here, Is merely Imaginary. Keao liitions iiasaed by the people of every village, town aud city, giving encour agement and protection to all those who will come and identify theru ,uh !.l general interests of the country against lawk ilesperadoes who are the outgrowths of war and di-sipatlon, (aud why should in every community be held in check by the express voice of the people), would bring thousands who aro kept away by the sensational dlstartianeea of politicians for their own personal ends. Then there could be no pretexts for State mllltla or military Interference in any section, and the hardy yeo manry of all lands would try to our waste places and bring them at once into cultivation, and villages would spring up around every factory and machine shop that such encourage ment would establish, and thepopula tlon would doubly increase. The sur plus capital which must seek an in vestment can tlnd no more profitable arrangement than in mining and de veloping corporations aud stock-man-iifie turing companies at home, where every shareholder will have a direct interest in the prosperity which it would Insure here, as it does to those sections where our products go, to give tliem facilities of trade which oujrht to exist here, as a result. If these corporations buy the cotton and man ufacture it here, It will bring the facil ities of St. Louis, Cincinnati, Loui--ville and New York even, at our own doors, to enhance tho value of all kinds of real estate. The capitalists and business men of those cities would be compelled to come here, and thus build up this country, when we would not go there to build up theirs by our trade and capital invested in their cities, stocks or manufactures, for cotton is still king in the money it controls. If tho capital of the $300,000,1)00 cotton crop was held here to be manufactured, it would draw all the facilities "and cheapness of the world around it. Manchester and New England factories would be des olated, their machinery transported at once, and many from all the man ufactures of the world would be set tling down in our midst to increase the value of real estate perhaps an Hundred fold by the dense population which such a course would secure. We shall become the most abject of any people if, by the contrary policy, we allow ourselves to be the commer cial allies of any section when we have the capital, power and opportunity of oiaking ourselves Independent of any. tir ihB climate aud fertility of the soil Will allow of the most aense pop ulation of any part of the globe, and the most material profit to all exnr- tions, either in agncuiuuv, u...n..- ...rnun capital hero, wo would add toil the capital that its manufactures would doubly secure, " if other sections, uitu iuKuv would make the South In a short time the richest portion of the globe, and her cities and state of civilization would eclipse an supim! , wealth wouiu nocome pmwn "."u ;.nmll,v more suicidal mere tuu-u . - . . - toe Dresumptiou mat ne woum w mn-, efited by such a course, especially thissiutnilar when his home merchant f ..i'T . ricnilcate hla bills at the same prices, W nn, iuueiw '- tfencral home demand, buys as largely and as cheaply as any. ...e in the price of real estate would be more than equal to all the profits which homo business would secure, so It is doubly more to the Interest of the planter than the home merchant that home trade and Industry and produet- veness shouiit ne eucwwwu. the planter has not stuuieo n mo bearings of this subject, and may con tinue to work against his own inter est unless this subject is agitated, and home merchants go directly to them to assure them that they can sell them goods at as low prices as any enrnpet itots asrain-t the interest ol Southern industry.

Our Railroads to Have Full Justice from the Government. We learn from the Banner of Wednesday that the rial purpose of Gov. Senter's visit to Washington was to save our railroads from seizure by the United States authorities. As we are informed, the Governor sub mitted three propositions, to the Pres ident, any one of which would prove satisfactory to the railroad companies against which tho Government is now urging its claims, viz: That Congress should select two Corn rnissioners, who, with an equal number, named by the companies, should arbitrate as to the conflicting interests, or that the Com missioners should be selected by the President himself, or that the ques tions involved should he referral to the Federal Courts for adjudication. .p. last named proposition ap peared to be preferred by the Presi dent.

They need have no tears. Spiteful legislation is unworthy of the age and times." The schools throughout tho State are being organized as fast as possible. In the counties heard from there are 185,000 scholars enrolled, with twenty one counties to hear from, which it'is estimated will swell the number to 160,000. The Murfree-iboro Monitor describes its town as follows: " A city of flvo thousand inhabitants, eleven pike roads, nine churches and four colleges, surrounded by as fine farming lands as ever the sun shone upou. . It isn't fiuished. Good farmers and mechan ics will find a hearty welcome here." Tho marble recently discovered in immense quantities on "Little Hur ricane" creek, near Tullahorati, is de scribed as "somewhat resemblng the East Tennessee marble, with the ex ception that the figures, lines, or grains, or whatever you choose to call them, are finer and more closely ioined than any other Tennessee marble that I have ever seen. Its color La gray, mixed with small rod particles in some of the specimens, while others have a v tho red J t, bluish appearance, iheso ditterent ones, are said to be reflections from the frag ments of shells contained in the marble."
