Border Agricultural Society of Virginia and North Carolina, Danville, October 22d to 25ta An Address to the People of North Carolin . The North' Carolina .'AgflcultBral and Industrial Convention jfbicK met in Raleigh on the 1 1th of January last, by a unanimous vote, directed their Testden,t to, prepare and issue a ad, dress to the People of th'S-tate'oa the subject of coxoperatiao and such other matters as may be of interest. Tbe uodersigned in obedience to that resolution, ventures ta offer some suggestion to the public and particu larly to farmers for their serious con sideration. It should be taken as a good omen, that upon a short notice, and that too imperfectly circulated, more thau two hundred delegates, representin twenty-four counties and twenty different societies and associations, should have assembled together ai ' that season- of the vear. in Convention : thvt two days should have been devoted by tbem to the earnest, harmonious and lutein- gent consideration of subjects of vital importance to the Agiicultund lnter- cU of the State, and that by tactt consent, eve: y thing of a politi'al char acter should have been excluded from the consideration of the assembly. It U a step in the right direction, You were informed th.ouh the pablio press of the subjects which were acted upon by the Convention and it is thought not necessary that they should ail hew be enumerated You could not have failed a observe, that they were all of deep inter st. most of them of vital importance, and all are beset with difficulties so great aa to reuder the success of most of tbem hopeless, unless thiough the united intelligence and wiadoinof the people. f it be possible, these difficulties must be met and must be overcome; or we can hardly expect a hih degree of success in our ag.icultural and other indastrial pursuits. CAPITAL AND-LABOR. In the first place, 'for example, all men are agreed thab mun have more capital and labor,,, before the State can bo raised from its present condition. Rut cupital and Lbor can not be created for the occasion. It must come to us. And the most san guiae of our leading men have expec ted that it would pour in upon us ,'roni abroad so many and so great, are tne inducements held out by the excel' leoce of our soil, climate and produc tions, ioviting immigration. But others less sanguine cannot build with confidence upon these expectations for timely aid and relief. Aod a sound consideration of the subject w 11 probably lead generally to the follow in conclusions. Our thousands of ac rs of uncultivated lands will not he occupied by an industrious populas :oii of skilful farneis, nor will we have a more abundaut supply of val uable larborers until threo conditious are iu SUed on our part. TUETI'fiEE CONDITIONS. Fivst. Our public debt must be disposed of iu some way. This debt. so-ci'lled, amounts to $35,000,000, and is 'daily iici easing by accuin-r inter est, and opcates as a substan ial mort z,a, for is redemptirn. upon all the property of the people which as asses sed iii tixation amounts only to S119,000,000. That is to say, the real and pertouai property of the State, is only about three times greater than the debt for which it is bound. Secondly. Tranqui'ity and good order must be fully established through out our borders; and the laws must be obeyed as iu the days of old, and at home and abioad, cvtrywhere all must be assured th-tt this is so. The want of this convict. on abroad is now opera ting stroDjly aga-nst us. Thirdly. A sound system of pub-, lie instruction muft be established, on such a footing that all inquiries will be sai;sficd that it will be permanent and efhcicub. Lmil thee three conditicns are first performed on our part, we may be assured that adequate relief will not come to us fro.n abroad, capital ists wili not invest here and companies of valuable immi'jrantyill not settle heie. . Jt THE PRESENT SClEP. But the trouble is 'upon us. It s urgent, we caunot wait; what is to be doue? The answer is: We must make th most, of our present means and re- 1. We must ue , whst labor we have, to the greatest advantage, aod make it wore valuable to us. This must' be done by diminishing the size of our faims, draw in the inclosures; cultivate less land, and cultivate it better; making a less number of acres produce-better crops, and with more cenaioty than the whole plantation does now, and at the same time by this means, a better system of agricul ture will be introduced. 2. But it is obvious that our surest reliance for labor under the pres ent circumstances is upon our colored people. The whole population of tne btate is 1,071.361 souls, of this number 1,241 are Indians, and 391,00 are of Airi can. descent. And all things consid ered, they are the best field laborers in the world. We are all here together. They are dependent for their bread upon their labor in the cultivation of the laod. and they have no lauds of their on to cultivate. While the whit population numbering 780,470, own the land, and to a great extent are un able to cultivate it for themselves. Here then, we have presented to us, the elements of a most convenient, valuable and neccessary arrangement between the two races. The true basis is furnished of a last ing business partnership mutual in terest. One party furnishes the land which uf necessity must be cultivated, and the other party iurnishes the la bor which of necessity must be used in its cultivation. InSueuced by those considerations, aod also by the high and houonbte duty which we owe u the colored race among ns, growing out of our former relations with it, thi3 arrangement should be adopted io good faith and carried out on our part upon just, fair and libers al principles. Aud we should cheer fully aid them as th weaker party iu their endeavors to conditioq. improve their CHILDREN MUST BE TAUGHT THE FIRST' PRINCIPLES OF AGRICULTURE. But labor and capital is not all thai cr Agriculture require. The present- ruinous mode of agriculture must be changed, has been des cribed as "the art by which good'.' "land ia converted into. Old fields." It U a "ixad habit' which like other' bad habits has become a second na'ure, with the great body of the cultivators of the soil. ' As U now is, it has de eceoded f-om father to sou without a change through generations through centuries. In vain, wVl you appeal tu old nieo; they wi! he..r you and agree to the tt Ukh of what you eay, but they will not crpflge their .way a. Tho old bad hah't remains,' - The child reo are- the hope of the country, and they mast be instructed in ifte simple elt'rn,entary principles of aj.'-icu'.ure, Teach t'ae ci ildrcn of this year and io ten, years you have a whole body of farmers taught. In this let us follow Germany and France; lit us ibllow otiire and common - east. CO-OPERATION. Asricuhate is, and must be, of paumouit importance to tho people of North Caioliua. It is our just and grot pursuit our trading iute. est tbe founc'Htion of everything else. The present mod of ag icul mi e calls Tor a genet al and thorougn charge. Tbn wiiole .vstein ruuAt be remodeled and suited to our present "irci'.ns'f.nees". Our : vrrious resources mu't be developed aud brought into use. And tb's feat work sUould Le ommeuced in earnest, without further delay, anJi-urried on with all the en e-.y and peseveraDce oX all our peo ple. To accomplish tK is great end cqi'ires mvoh mo-e than ordinary A: iMicLiKal societies expect to acoom--pl:sl:. Their chief des-go, is to b,r;u out foe eh'b't.io.1 whatever is most exie'leot in eyeTy department of In dus, y. Thus all valuable iuforma :oi given and e.nula ion, interest and Eo.il a,' e i roused. But there is no oppo? luft:ty here ior acqaireiog ld'1 orm'd.lnn oo place for general coos. 'i .. 'on and discussion of the v.'.rioua subjects of interest (A the cu1 tlvcior o" i n. soil. The place for this is i tiie neibbji-bood club, the coun ty a 'oc:atiori, the district convention, rod especially in separate associations fe mcii y the differeat cultivators ol toe soil ; the grc'ui growers, the iobc co piatrters, the co.ton plan ers, ti e nu.se.yuieo, &.., &c.- All these associations should be fo-rptd aod should be fostcied aud si-Mijed, and oue spirit, one union, oue object should animate them all, to t'e advancement of the agriculture condition of the State. Individual effort can d but little; the cause requires concert of aotiou; organised, iu.elligeut co-opei ation. THE TOLiTiCAL CONDITION. Alter much reflection it is thought that iu u address of this kind to the woule people of the State, allusion may w.tli propriety be made to our politi cal condition. Two great political parties have arise-u out o! tin: new order uf tilings, aud are contending for the superioi itj. Oue ol these parlies evidtutly rei.- resenU tho great mass of the sub-tau-tial, iptelligent poition of the people: that portion of them wniuh muin'v hears the burduus oT the :ovei umeul. ud tli's Ja iy it would stem, dues not Sudimuily reg.trJ me s.'tuattou, power and iufluence of another great c'ass ol' the people the oioied pop elai'tu aud eudeavors to obtain aud coot.ol the goveeumeut without their aid and in dcrauce of ll em. The other p"riy, on the contrary, seema ou'D'y to rtly upon the com bined suppo.t of the colored popula- oj, aud eodeavois to obiaiu the cotitrol of the goverameut wit hout the aid una ;n deSaoce of the mt lligeui, tax-paying po.tiou of the people. Oi thtae two parties, with the expe rience of the past before us, and iu the present condition of things, it uay witu sa.ecy be amruieu, tnat ueiihcr, while entertaining these views, can wisely ard satisfactorily administer the State government. The public good, ibr which govern ment was instituted, rises superior to all party success and triumph. It ia time, it is fail time, for the "sober second thought of the people" to ace aLd for their voice to be heard. The North Carolina. State Agricul tural Convention will meet in UJeigh on the 1 1th of December next. In it will be assembled a ul! representa tion of the agricultural interests of the State, and there let the liberal, .the wise, the pa riotic leaders and promi nent men of both political parties meet with them ; aud there also let us have a full reprcar niation of that class of men whom tbe people formerly dc I'ghted to honor and. to trust. Such men as Calvin Graves, AH red Dock ... ery, David S. lleid, Giles Mebane, Wi'liam Eutoo, the two venerable ex Judgci of the old Supreme Court, and many others from all over the St.te, of the tjame class ot eminent citizens, who have not of late taken a prominent part in public affairs. And then let this subject be submitted to a committee of such men as will com mand tbe respect and confidensa of the whole State, to whom their report shall be made. Pet pie of North Carolina! A new Uture les before us. Shall it be a tuture of Euccess, of prosperity, of greatness, or a calamitous failuiel'' The great crisis is upon us.
