Ripley Nat: No gentleman in the
Western division of the State is held
in higher esteem, both as a man and a
lawyer, than Col. Ben. J. Iea of
Brownsville. His popularity, how
ever, is not confined to his own sec
tion, but from conversation with gen
tremen from the other divisions, we
find that he has gained many friends
and admirers in Middle and Fast Ten
ncMsco also. There is such a general
.current in the popular mind in West
Tennessee in favor of Col. Ix!a, that it
will lead no doubt to the people here
making unanimous presentation of
his name to the convention for a nom
ination to one of tlie Supreme Judge
ships for the State. For ourselves, we
hail the indication with delight and
earnestly hope" that the prog
nosis may be fulfilled. Col. Lea
has passed his life in the study
and practico of law, and pro
fessionally has secured the most unu
sual success. Hois now at tho ripe
age of about fifty-five years, the pe
riod at which man's reason and dis
cretion are most mature and powerful.
At the beginning of the late war he
organized and was elected colonel of
the Fifty-second Tentiessee Infantry,
and served with distinction from tlie
beginning to the end of thut memora
ble contest. When the present Su
premo Court was organized, nearly
eight years ago, it elected Col. Lea to
till the arduous and responsi hie posr
tion of Attorney-General and UeiHii lei
for the State, which position he still
holds, having so far discharged if du
ties with singular fidelity and ability
l,ea s supremo Court Reports are not
only the most voluminous, but perhaps
the mosD accurate and best selected of
any other series drawn from tho de
cisions of tht! Supreme Court. He has
been singularly happv in omitting?
cases mini ins reporw which merelv
re-echoed the voice of the court in
many similar preceding cases already
reported, and lie has embraced onlv
those cases which adjudicated nointu
not previously before the court for de
cision, or, at least, not previously re
ported. His reiwirts have deservedly
taken high rank with the profession.
We are very sure that the State could
not possibly do herself a better service
when she comes to choose her public
servants than to elevate Attbrnov-
General Lea to the Supreme bench.

Ionisville Caurir Journal: Surprise
was expressed in this column a few
weeks since at the statement that
river IxUtom lands in Mississippi that
rented for fvS to 10 an aero could be
bou;'ht for 20 to I!0 per acre. Since
then an vxamination lias been made
tif a pamphlet issued in 18S3 by tho
United States Department of Agri
culture, being special report by A. B.
Hurt, special agent, on "Mississippi
Its Climate, Soil, Productions and
Agricultural Capabilities," which fully
confirms the statement. In this report
a comparison of land in Mississippi
with Illinois, Indiana and Iowa Ls
made, which shows that the average
of all kinds of land in Mississippi, in
cluding upland and river bottom, per
acre is $17 7!, while the average crop
value over the whole Stato is j 12 21
per acre. In Illinois tint average land
value is f:W 05, the average crop value
per acre being J7 81. In Indiana the
average land value is f45 00, the aver
age crop value per acre being ! 8 23.
In Iowa the average laud value is
123 .r2, the averago crop Talue per acre
being JO STi. These statistics are- for
improved land only in each State. It
appears from the above, says the re
port, that the price of lands, or their
market value, in Mississippi bears
no just proportion to their real
intrinsic value. . I-ands that will
average a money product of
$12 21 per acre should average a
market value of at least $o0 per acre,
especially in such a temperate, health
ful climate. If Mississippi could
double or treble its population by
the addition of thrifty, industrious
immigrants, possessed of somo capital,
the price of funds would no doubt in
crease to something like a real value.
This is now leing accomplished, and
it is given on the authority of the
State Commissioner of Kmigration
that lands have advanced from 00 to
100 percent, in the past two years.
The annual death rate in Mississippi
is 12.89 in each 1000 of population.
Since the date of the report, in 1883,
tho Mississippi Valley railroad has
been built, which runs from Memphis,
Tenn., to Vicksburg, Mis., and thence
to New Orleuns, and forms tho great
trunk line of the Huntington system
between the Atlantic anil Pacific
oceans. This railroad traverses the
rich bottom lands forming the Yazoo
delta. In shape the delta is ellipsoidal
and the soil is composed of dark, rich
alluvium deposited by tho overflow of
the Mississippi and Yazoo rivers. At
itt northern limits, commencing at
tlie State line, the delta is about ten
miles wide ; thence following the Mis
sissippi river southwardly it ex
tends eastwardly to tho Yazoo
river and its tributaries; and
running south it varies in width
from thirty-nix to sixty miles;
then narrows until it terminates near
Vicksburg, where tho hills extend to
the bank of the Mississippi river.
This delta is the most fertile plain in
the United States, and tho annual
overflow is now avoided by a perfect
system of levees, built by taxing the
cotton grown within the protected
district. The plain comprises about
-'50 squaro miles or 4,000,000 acres,
of which only 500,000 acres, or one
eighth, is improved, and the remain
der is covered with vast . forests of
valuable timber. Of tho total 5,210.
037 acres improved land in Mississippi,
these 500,iXXJ acres river bottom, most
ly on the river, are credited with yield
ing 27 per cent, of the total crop
value of 192,844,915. That is, oue
tenth of the acreage yields more than
one-fourth of the annual crops in
value. The railroad runs from fifteen
to thirty miles from the Mississippi
river, and has two branches leading
to the river. The report gives various
tables showing from the crop expense
nccounts of planters in different por
tions of the State tho cost of cotton
production. Tho estimateof a planter
in a Mississippi river county is con
densed as follows: Basis, one aero;
yield, 4du pounds nni.
Preparing land for seed $2 60
Plaiting 3 of)
First, second and thud pl iwiugr 3 i'5
First and second chopping 3 00
Laying by 1 50
Cultivation and seed $13 25
Picking 14( 0 pounds seed cotton 7 50

950 lbs. cotton seed wt ruh- f 00
Total yield 45 f0
Deduct cof t of production- 22 60
Net profit on one acre...... ....,,123 60
With such a result as this the ten'
ant can well afford to pay $10 an acre
rent, especially as he can save $13 per
acre for cultivation by doing the work
himself, and thus make 10 per acre
for working the crop and 112 50 per
acre prom on me crop over ana above
the rent.
The tenant's account can bo stated
Product from one acre in lint
cotton and std $45 00
'Deduct rent of land.. 00
Deduct hire of mule,
plow and feed 5 00-115 00
Net profit after paying rent of
land, mule, plow, etc $30 00
which sum is my compensation in lieu
of wages. The above is a common re
sult, but unfortunately tho profits of
the tenant are usually eaten up by the
storekeepers who advance him sm
plies before thecrop is made. Intelli
gent persons in thel South ' represent
that the grandest 'openings in the
world for assured fortunes are there to
be found. Beyond a question, land
rthat will give such magnificent results
as the foregoing-calculation eeta forth
it) a great speculation to buy at 130 an
.acre, and even at double and treble
that price. v
