In a paper read) before the Memphis Xranch of the Mississippi Tallej780ciety of Iiondon, a few days ago, it was stated that if the valley of the Mississippi were thoroughly reclaimed and Irri gated, and the whole of the lowlands devoted to cotton production, the an nual yield would be morejthan fourteen million bales, or nearly thrice the great est crop ever produced in America. In leaching these results, the cotton-growing lowlands were estimated to be forty Jive mileSjWide and five hundred miles in length. .Even now the annual pro duction of the lowlands, as shipped from IMemphis, 2sew Orleans and Vieksburg, is perhaps one and a half million bales, giving to thejeopleof this valleyninety million dollars in gold; or, since the war, seven hundred .million dollars in gold. With all this enormous w ealth thus produced, such are commercial sys tems Tastened on the country by Federal legislation, and such the course of com merce as shaped by railways and manu facturing systems, that the people of this valley, at this hour, are the poorest, because thetupidest, on this continent. "We tax money until it is driven away. There can be no gold or money in a country taxing It when it is untaxed In adjacent States and cities. Money travels not by rail alone,but flies by tele graph, and stupendous folly in southern legislation and chancery courts have given it countless wings. Real-estate is Ho baiia of credit, and borrowers must pay enormous rates of usury, a heavy per centage being added to the lender's profits and borrower's 1ms, to pay for xisks incident to thu intervention of in junctions invoked to defeat contracts be tween borrowers and lenders. If real estate were a perfect security for money lent and as well for perfect promptness of payment, and there were no usury laws, property would never be sold under mortgage. When a debt matured. Be, cured by mortgage and the borrower could not pay, he would always Hud other money-lenders to take the place of iris creditor and give further time. Per fect security is all that lenders ask, coupled with the perfect assurance that the debt will be paid the moment it is. due. It is a sad state of affairs when legislation is so unwisely shaped that it drives out ot the south all the wealth which the south produces. The Federal government is used by the east to rob the south and went and enrich the east by means of intolerable tariff codes, and then the weak legislatures of the south devise schemes of narrow f-elfishnesa "whleh plunder these States by pro cesses even more ruinous than that of the tariff system. We are content to give the country, in eight years, eight hundred million dollars, in gold, and have not a dollar ourselves. STATU FIX ASCIIS. There are some who say the country is now in impoverished condition, and is unable to pay more than three per cent, at present, therefore say they let the remaining three per cent, lie over. "What would te the effect of this policy? Itwouhl ruin car State credit and bring upon U9 all the evils of repudiation. It would not furnish any permanent relief. The three per cent, standing even would amount to seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars per annum, and in ten years this would be seven million five hundred thousand dollars of an ad ditional debt which would have again to be funded, because the people could not bear a tax sufficient to pay it in one or two years. This plan increases the debt, and tends to make it permanent, "when the true and wise policy should be to create1 a sinking fund to decrease the debt yearly. It has been tliown most ably and conclusively by Colonel Killebrew In his agricultural report, that the increase in the wealth cf the State will pay the debt In a few years without any increase of taxation. Upon the question of ability of the State to pay there can be no doubt. A State whose annual agricultural productions amount to eighty-six millions of dollars can easily, pay such a deltt as we have in twenty years If we will reduce our expenditures, as.should be done, In the administration of our State govern ment. Even now wo are lees burdened than other States, and when wo begin to prosper, as we will if we preserve our credit, our taxes should be very light, and at the same time our obligations woukl be promptly met. The question of preserving our State credit is above all otherque&tions, and we cannot afford te let It be ignored. Repudiation as a mere question of dollars and cents, without regard to honor and principle, and is most unwise, because it will reflect more pecuniary loss than the amount saved. Ex-GovBRNORWlNSTONjOf Alabama, -wrote to Charles L. Scott in April, 1S70, that bo, at one time, favored the idea of convincing the negroes of the plain truth that their interest and fortunes were thoroughly identified witli those of the -white people. He was at length driven to the conclusion that the end was unat tainable. In all KlitIcaI and partisan intercourse with the people of the south, fcaid the governor, the conduct of the negro is characterized by endless du plicity, and, with his present political master, by unlimited confidence. He is a mere machine a soldier obeying or ders. The carpetbagger and scalawag point to manifold wrongs and injuries in the past to the denial now, as then, of social equality and make more prom ises than Satan to our Savior, with no more prospect of performance. There is ao possibility of alliance or co-opeia tion between the races. It Is an inevit able and irrepressible conflict, declared the governor, and any entanglement -with the negro must result in embarrass ing as. By a clear and plain declaration of our principles we -will, after a time, be bound to win. Local advantages might result from a mongrel ticket, but tbere la more strength in an open, out arid out white man's ticket. AVe can carry some prudent and sensible negroes but a? a party we have tendered them the olive branch, which they have spurned with derision. Any further ef fort on our part will be simply throw ing pearls before swine. Governor Baxter had a very flut tering reception at Pine Bluff, on Friday last. The "special" to the Little Rock GaztUc sayfc' tho landing was crowded with a rejoicing populace. The mayor and Dr. Holcombe, from the balcony of he Planters' house, tendered to the pov ernor and party the hospitalities of the city, and he replied iu a brief but happy speech, which was loudly cheered. The colored people were very enthusiastic a"saWWsMEtCJDB O. F.

General White made on address of welcome, and thanked Uie governor for the honor con ferred upon the people of Jefferson. The reception was a grand ovation to an ap preciated public man, and the people are happy and enthusiastic for the great savior of their liberty and honor Gov ernor Baxter. Tho barbecue the next day was an admirable supplement to tliis reception, in which nearly all tho people of Pine Bluff, without regard to color, participated. A New Orleans paper says that "the worst view of the levee case is the im possibility of extricating t urselvcs from It. It is ramified through society every where, here, and along the whole valley. It creates offices and spoils, and barna- 1 cles, and habits of life, and sustains mul titudes. There are boards of commis- j sioners, whose interest it is to perpetuate the false system, as it is a source of con tinued gain to them. This will be one of the great benefits of the general gov ernment taking hold of the elephant It will enable the State, after long and ar duous effort, to wind up the different levee concerns, now fastened on the people." ' The New Orleans Picayune advo- catss the formation of white loyal leagues, and many of our southern ex changes adopt the proposition, asserting I that this course has become a stern ne cessity in some of the southern States. The negroes go together, as one man, on any and all questio-is, and if we do not do the same we must prepare to give up our countiy. There is no de nying the fact; every election proves it more conclusively. We have already lost valuable time; let us not delay any longer, but begin at once to solidify our strength, to protect all that is dear to us, from the march of anarchy and ig norance. The Mobile Megisler, In an elaborate eil torial, says that the day for success ful cotton-planting on the lowlands of tho south ia past. The present genera tion follows the culture as a desperate resource aud under the Influence of pre vious habit. The future culture of tho staple will be done by small farmers, and as an Incidental rather than as a principal business; other cotton-growing will prove a delusive pursuit. The letters and editorials published everywhere in New York State by tho newspaper men who were recently at Birmingham and Montgomery will be of infinite service to Alabama and tho south. .Even the most violent Radicals lihve found their opinions of southern pe ple wholly changed, and all concur in urging people to seek homes in the so ltb. Kouxdrymex and speculators in br .ss balls, such as constitute a large sb ire of the population about the St. L uis postoflice, are constantly asking co iRress for condemned brass ileldpieces, a1 1 congress gives them away by the sc re. There will be many fine rnonu- mt nU to American heroism, or m re to A'tierican thriftlessness, moulded from these guns. Tins reads as if the "bloody chasm" vm filled up sure enough. At the an mill meeting of the alumni at West IVint academy the other day, a resolu tion was adopted Inviting all graduates of the academy, both north and south. to join in the anniversary dinner next yi ar. There is economy practiced now In tl o city government. The chief of po lice reduces his force and bis bills each month. Can't all other departments in.Itate his example? Head the inter minable lists of property sold for taxes, aini reflect that money was never so in accessible to the poor. The constitutional convention, to be hi Id at LitUe Rock on the thirtieth in 8tnt, monopolizes the public, attention, ainl we are glad to learn that in many unties the negroes are making com re on cause with the Conservatives in the election of good men. Fkom all accessible sources of in- tb'mation we are assured that the grow ing grain crop and that being garnered in the south, is by far the best and most abundant grown in tho south since the war. (JENERAL J. AMBLER SMITH IS gO- ir ;' to Europe to sell mineral and mountain lands of Virginia to Alsa- thics and Scots. The Graphic approves the civil righta b'll and polygamy, and, we suppose, miscegenation, and there's an end of the Graphic.
