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.

whenever you can Inspire seH-respect,
you elevate the Individual, ir you
iiope to win, never first insult tho
manhood. In our country, all want
to be self-reliant; and If you would
save your city anu oiaie iroui ruiu
provide a place or plaoes where the
children of the State can enter an in
stituaon and liarn his or her own liv
ing, and learn a trade at tho same
tlin9. This can bo done. A farm
schjol and workshops can be all com
bined, where practical farming, prac
tical mecnanics anu practical educa
tion can all bo successfully taught,
and whfreyour little wanderers can
find homes, protection and education;
aud after the first outlay to organize,
the receipts will be more than the ex
penditures per annum. At outlay of
$60,000 will relievo She Iby county ol
nor mackerels, and change five hun
dred poor, pennyless wanderers, who
would become vagabonds, into useful
members of society, an honor to the
State and a blessing to the world.
Will not some ono who is qualified to
take hold of this matter; aud if the
county and the city is too poor, 1 know
that there are private means enouirn
that will be cheerfully given to aid
this work. I know that every honest
man in our county regrets the exist
ence of this class of population, and 1
do not believe it would require one
week to raise a fund amply sufficient
to buy the land and put up the neces
sary houses and shops to make it a
success. Let some practical plan be
adopted and some fit person selected
to tako hold of thU matter, and let
the work commence at onco, and I
feel as certain as I do that I exist, you
can in six months relieve your city
and county of the stigma that now
attaches, to It; and you, who have a

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.

peared to be preferred by the Presi

They also took occasion to remark
that thepoiutsat issue had never been

until Gov. Senter's visit, the impres

railroad companies to the demands of
the War Department arose from a de
termination on their part to evade
meeting their engagements, and that
