religion, and manners. But there is
onTkind of emigration we do not hesitate to ;
recommend to young men. It is to emigrate,
from lite citiesand towns to the country, and
instead of seeking positions as clerks ? bus,
new houses, io rent hind enough innbcr"r'^
districts to give them occupation, or to seek
emplovinent at tite hands of the farmers who
complain so much of the want, of labor. |
More money can be made in this way out ol
rlie .oil than they can obtain ill the citios..|
They can become producers instead of,
being consumers. I-et them answer the
crv of the Interior country for laltor. and they ,
?vill iucrease tlieir individual wealth and the
wealth of the South. The public opinion of]
the South ought to be arrayed against all
drones and idlers who lounge their lives away
in cities and villages when labor is so much
needed, nnd offers such rich rewards. What
is there degrading in labor ? It Is not lia as
degrading as lazy dependence. There is noth
ing even In hiring themselves out to \voik 011
farms which is less compatible Willi pel -j
so,u.1 dignity;,ban hiring ,ben.selv?._ to work (
in stores, couuting-fpouis, or oilicts, for the
city employers. Those of our young men ,
Who, in the late war. enrolled themselves as ,
privates, and placed themselves under the
direction of officers of companies whose stipe- ,
riority in civil life they would never bave rc- .
Co"t?lzed, will Hud nothing as mental In the
Unties of a farm as they then had to perform
in the cainp-no such sacrifice of dignity and |
independence, no sncl, hardship and toil.
Why is it less honorable to occupy the station
Of private in peace than it. war, especially
when a successful campaign will II" lhe pock
ets, and enable the laborer of this year to be
the proprietor 01 next :
We see nothing, therefore, to warrant gloomy
auguries of the future prospects of our ,
southern eities if the people cultivate those
hopes and develop those energies which are
demanded by the emergency. The high prices (
of our staples w ill keep us afloat till immigra- !
tion gives us an adequate supply of labor, and
when that immigration comes, and begins to
put forth its powerful influence in every de
partment of industry, the improved agricul- |
ture of the State and the impetus given to !
every branch of enterprise will make Richmond
more prosperous than at any previous period i
of its history.
Besides the advantages to be derived from
improved agriculture, we may look to manu- '
facturesas a permanent source of wealth and
importance to the city. There is nocity in the
ITnion which enjoys such natural advantages
to become a great manufacturing city; and
never, in all the history of manufacturing
industry, were its profits as high as they are
at this time. With the convenient access to
minerals and the immense water power pos
sessed by this city, it can be redeemed from
any loss that the rivalry of Baltimore rail
roads or any possible falling off in country
trade could entail.
We say, then, to the croakers, avaunt! ami
to the timid-hearted, cheer up! and to the
idlers, go to work! and all will yet be well.
Mexico. *
The report* from Mexico are very conflict
ing. There are two interests at work, and
since the influence of rumor and misrepre
sentation u]>on men is well understood, they
are employed with great activity by those |
who have political or personal objects to ac
complish touching Mexico. One day we have
great Liberal victories. The latest of these
was the much-flourished re]?oit of the capture
of Alamos, and the defeat of Almapa, the
Imperialist, by Mautixkz. But, by a recent ?
accoont, it appears that Martinez hat! a thou- |
sand efficient troops, and Almapa only three
hundred native Mexicans. The little band
tinder Almapa defended the town for tighten
houri. They were nearly all killed and
wounded, and Almapa escaped to Gnayama*
with only^teen men. He was there received
with eclat for his heroic defence.
We state these facts to show how these
engagements are exaggerated. A very late
letter from Vera Cruz represents the Mexi
cans aa more and more satisfied with Maxi
milian. It is stated that the Emperor has ,
now a large party?the majority?decidedly on
his side, and that this party embraces the
wealthy and influential |K>rliouof the citizens. ,
Meantime in this country Maximilian is;
not recognized, and persons are seeking in
Washington to drag the Government into such .
complication vzitL Mexican affair* as may ,
bring ou difficulties. It is said that Colonel
>.?.oxTi.?aeof the prime movers in these
efforts, and that he and his coadjutors are
earnestly seeking in Washington to induce the
Government to endow the Mexican bonds on
the Liberal side for fifty millions of dolhtrs.
We have no apprehension, however, that they
will succeed.
Ffnianism?Canada,
t'nhada continues to be greatly excited by
Fen tan ism. The news of preparation by the
Fenians to invade the British Provinces ex?
cites the liveliest apprehensions and the most
active measures for defeuce. The reports that
ammunition, arms, eic., were accumulating
In the villages on the Lake Champlain and at
other points near the border continue to spread
and grow in their formidable character as
they travel. The country Is on the qui rivf
from Hamilton, C. \\\, to Montreal.
In Hamilton, a number of incendiary fires
had occurred, which were attributed to
Fenians. Everything irregular is laid to the
Fenians. A feeling of insecurity and dread
prevails, and suspicion is excited by the most
trivial signs. A poor fellow cng iged in
making corn-salve was suspected of making
cartridges, and, being arrested, was almost
murdered by the mob before it was ascer
tained that he was a poor innocent person,
w ho never made a Fenian cartridge.
A great Fenian raid was looked for, and the
entire volunteer force of the Province was
placed under the command of Sir John
Mitchell (most singular name for a com
mander of the. Queen's regular forces), and
those already embodied were kept 011 strict
duty. It was proposed to embody the whole
male ]>opulation of Canada as a "home
guard" (that wnl be a terrible body of men,
as we know well here')
The commander-in-chief, in an order dated
at Toronto, explains the call for so large a
number of volunteers tube "the threatened
"piractical attacks of lawless men, who are
" using the territory of a ueighboiing Power
"for the purjtose of organizing an enterprise
"against the sovereign rights of the Queen
" and the security of her subjects." He makes
a strong ;q>peal to the people to come for
ward and face and repel any inv asion of their
coast.
Troops were at Windsor, Sarnia, Stanstead,
Prescott, and Brochville; ahd reserves were
held at Hamilton, Toronto, London, Kingston,
Montreal, and Quebec.
At Toronto, Bishop Lynch's letter against
the Fenians was read in the churches; and,
for the sake of the peace of the city, priests
called upon the Catholics not to parade
through the streets on St. Patrick's day.
On the 12th, at Toronto, the Fenian excite
ment had somewhat subsided ; but the Go
vernment had not relaxed its measures for de
xence.
? A dispatch dated Hamilton, March 12th,
states that the entire regular force of the two
Provinces stationed in the places immediately
threatened amounts to six thousand six hun
dred, of which two thousand five hundred
were Irish, and unreliable. This number does
not include the volunteers.
It has been estimated in the United States
that fifteen thousand Fenians could be em
bodied for the invasion of Canada.
a grand sensation story.
A telegraph dated New York, 13th instant,
says :
44It is said here that it has been reliably
ascertained that the military excitement going
on in Canada is the result of direct special
commands from the Crown of Great Britain,
for the purpose of diverting the Fenian Bro
therhood from Ireland as the grand objective,
and to precipitate the union of the Provinces,
with Prince Alfred on an American throne.
44 The agents of England are now here with
gold to carry out this plan, but they have been
foiled by the detective system of the Fenian
Brotherhood, which ramifies society in this
country even to the stables of Sir Frederick
Bruce at Washington, and the Governor-Oen
eral of Canada. Further particulars ot these
astounding developments will be- given to the
public. The bearer of the dispatches from the
fltieen of England, and who carried the orders
above referred to, is a Fenian, and is now in
New York."
At last dates, regulars were concent rating at
'Quebec, lea\ ing several minor towns unguard
ed, save (to quote the sensation story) by the
women and children, who were bravely pro
paring for the defence! In the enlisting of
volunteers, numbers are reported to have re
fused to volunteer, not fearing danger from
Fenians (probably tin* reverse). They were
marched to prison in the barracks. Some
fled to the woods, and "a small body to the
United States.

. IS A SOURCE OF REGRET BY
. a large majority, and considered to he a matter
rreproach, that at this season of the year Rich
ond should he without a Theatre. A plan has
een suggested to me by which the present dilti
lltv may be removed, and a series of entertain
ents given, of a high and instructive order, it is
ie principle which regulates manv of (he great
nropean Theatres: Her Majesty's Theatre or
alian Opera-House, Covent Garden Theatre, and
hers. The plan is one of great simplicity, and
as follows :
A limited nuinherjof subscribers advance, respec
velv, fifty dollars, seventy-five dollars, or one
mtdred and fifty dollars, according to their incli
uion. This fund is placed in the bank, only to
* used in case the receipts d<> not meet the cur
int expenses. The season to continue foi three
onths (twelve weeks). If at the end of that time
ie receipts have been sufficient, the whole of
ie money will be returned to the subscribers ; if
a pro rata return will be made,
Tne subscribers of fifty dollars will be entitled
- a reserved seat for the whole of the dramatic
tasoii.
The subscribers of seventy-five dollars will be
ititled not only to a reserved seat during the
amatic season, but also the same privilege du
ng the operatic season, which commences the
tu instant.
The subscribers of one hundred and fifty dol
,rs will be entitled to a private box during the
[iwuatie season.
This fund is not unswerable for the rent?an
em which, under another management, is a great
?nsideration. i
ItTsau uncontrovertible fact that the Theatre,
hen open, gives a stimulus totrade and employ -
ent to many persons ; all the money earned r>y
horn is spent in the city. In this respect the
beatre dinej-s from all travelling exhibitions,
hich coxne here lor a few days, and carry away
ith them large sums of money, which never more
(turn to the coffers of the citizens. If this view
' the matter is duly considered, I am sure it will
?seen how important it Is to the community at
rge that a building such as the " New Richmond
heatre" should lie opened for the amusement,
-taxation, and instruction of the public.
J make this appeal with confidence that it will be
irdlally responded to, and tuy past managerial
ireer will be an earnest of my efforts in tlo* future.
Upon receiving fifty subscribers, 1 will open the
heatre ; and In return for the confidence placed
i me, 1 pledge myself to produce the best talent
id the best pieces 1 caii obtain.
Hhould I not, front any unforseen circumstance, -
idertake the management myself, the plan will
ill be carried out, and, in niy place, Mr. B. B
u fit eld, a gentleman of known experience and
iilUy, will do all that can be desirecf.
