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
-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.

where, here, and along the whole valley.
It creates offices and spoils, and barna- 1

the false system, as it is a source of con

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
