aua prayer
Thankful fcr what T
True, that owe thanks to the
Greit GiTr of AH Things, ihat He
has spared onr lives, and enabled us
to see the rising of the sun and the
zromz down thereof ; that He. has.
cent forth th rain and sunshine,
whereby our tempor-I -wants h,av.t
been abundantly supplied ; and has
stayed His avengrtg, hand iroi
many sections of cur country deserv
ing of chastises!', nt; but it seems,j
ti us that .Just at, tfcm. ti:pe.. w$l a.
Xatipnal thanksgiving ifT th- whol
country, North, Sent East and
West, is a aiockery of the term
and nutbinjj less.
In aNfc--I or S ate point of
view, for what have we to be thank
ful?
Congress and Legislatures proves
Sily of the most di.v est and dia
honorable. transactions ; the people
loand down by an intolerable bur
d&a c taxation !
prayer we. have jieid of! Prayer
that He may speeiily rid us of such
a dmgrce 10 our nation; and prayer
that He, in His good Providence,
may oon lighten the load in the
way o? taxe that now paralyzes the
efforts of all.
Have e cause t: be thankful
through a stupid Administration of
X ional finances,"' at-d blundering
management of puVlic funds for
the present money crisis tka is upon
us kee 'v g the honest laborer from
Irs liwful pay, and shipwrecki"g j
the staunchest business houses of )
the country ?
Have we cause in this era of nr
Xtitioiwl history to be thankful that
our I anks have suspended, and cur
rency has d sappeared;from the face
of the land ?
Have e of the South just at this
time, caute to be thankful, in view
of f'e aw'ul disenaat qcs of Provi
dence now being vi-ited upon some
of our fairest sections throu h the
medium of that grim monster ye',
low fever?
Prayer is needful f-r all, and
ta -ksgivings too, but surely no' in
the vie-v adopted by President 1
Gra-it and Governor Caldw. 11 sim-j
plybeca- se it was November tber- j
fore, a proclamat on . of thanksgiv
ing should be announced.
"We believe in prater, and, as an J
exchange well fay, ive b:lieve in
thanks to God ! II e is a merciful
tender Father; but he is alsi a
Judge ; and the time comes, i n th s
earth, when he sees fit to chasten
his people for their sins with a heavy
hand. And then they ought to bow
ia meekness, and pray in fasti-g and
humiliation ;: and we belie v that if
ever that season i-t to arrive, it has
jforae for the American yeople now.
Southern Planters and Their
Cotton
ilt cannot be denied that the pres
ent coodition of the cottOD market has
had the effect to produce an impres
sion upon the miud of the farmer thtit
jt would be ruinous for him to send
his crop to market at the present
piice3.
Takirg advantage c-f this fact n
number of peisotF, professing to rep
xtsent the iutcrests of the farmers,
have been advocating the policy of
keeping home thair crops until a bet
ter time, or, in other words, advising
men .to prove reereant to their plight,
ed obligations, when they received
advances upon which, and upon which
h'odc they could have made these
same crops.
"We- do not contend that a firmer
shou'd rush hia crop into market
and sacrifice tho S'me simply be
cause he is indebted to his commis
s on me.chant for supplies, but fe
do tbiak that simple justice demands
that he t-honld fend suffic en to
liquidate the same.
And though it is forwarded that
js no reason that it should be sold at.
the pr sent prices.
"We tae it fov granted that
cott n in h nd wi uld be satis-
f c ory to all 'actors, end that would be
sufficient to Xi'ac,r tho commission mer
chants upou a safo Lasis as to their
obligations in the Lanka, wi'li do det.
riment to .the producer.
If the Southern planters pursue the
tfl'.cy cf holdit.g back their cotton
now ai d allows Lis factors to bear the
brunt of the sti rm, they cannot,
with ary hope of success, expect, iu
the coming keason, that thiy will rr
ceive advances coujraeasurate with
iht-ir neceskit ice.

The Financial Crash The
ljuty of the South-
A correspondent of tb Southerns,-,
a few. issue, since, predicted that
tU present financial trash was then
but in it-infancy, ad. that irsVeriouS
and most damagirg lours wpuld soon
be developed.
It is now only too apparent that lis
prediction and iew were based ur. on
solid foundation.",. an,d there is much
reason that before the Autumn leaves
have passed away, - large Bonib.
now safe vi sqund, will auecuirb to
the severity of the storm,. .
Some of the features of this crash
furnish Ftrarge food, iqf financial
miud.4 to digest, but weshall" ooly
mention one. which is generally roo-
oidered t be most strange, imgortaDt
and daccero'Sr
Ileietofore, when fioaDcitiLtrpobles
have convulsed, the country, the
bants were the Utt. to i-peod
mvm?n'. cf e kind, but

iu thjs instant tiey took the
lead and di not wait for t'ja merch
ants to-cither suspend or break. TI is
course ou the part of our fiuuncifil.it!-
stitutions too pliinljr shews that they
l ave been doing bnsiue?s, far too ex
tensivelj. on borrowed or J,cpottt cap
ital, and it is safe to conclude that,
unless they caoi realize at a very early
dav laree sums ou their "Sills Ileceiv-
able," they will have to coitiuu. de
clining to piy depositors checks, and
any one cao sec whst such a
course v.ouIJ vi.sk.ou t Ji3 couutry.
On every hand panics will become ri
paut and every man that can j;ct ijold
of a dollar will take it bom? and "sit ou
it," though his course break all the
men in the community, IJailrf&l eu
terpiises, in every direefbo, w 11 su -pend;
every commodity iu the land
will dieiVue and the country will be J
visited by a swanu offjjihy extcitiocr
ers, that will rob it of its very vitality
Fanners will be couppUcd to see their
crops pass out af t lie: r iiuuda at fur
below what it cost to produce them
Cttton our King"- will he pur
c'.iased at rai nous rates and carried to
Europe by iore'gners y.ha will be ubL-
to bundle tt.
When this hour eoraes-r-and come it
oiust another bitt3r letou wijl be
taught our Southern planters whose
blioduess to their owu iutere-ts has
not on'y amr-xed the country, but will
rum them and the entire Sjuuth, nle.-s
they cease to bt hi-wcrs of vjoi d auci
diawers of water" for e North
r . . . n .
whose maiufactri5g inter?sts enable:
troubles far better than our people
If this lesson doss Dot awaken a cpcr
at d a commou seuse spririt aud de
termination sqiouz our Leople 110
fatei 0f a financial character, will ever
be too eevere for them. "They are a
lauglmg stock for the reypie
of the 5n;-thwesl a support
and stay to the New Kugiat.d people
and yearly wrste their very existence
simply to cniich the rfn.aud 'heir j
children whose hoarded gains were

This picture is not too strong, for it
is true, and truth cauuot be ovei-
diawn or painted in too bnUiant
color-, though the colors used exceed
the rays of the noon-lay suu.
Wc have frequently been exasyera
ted at hoaricg Northern men, whiie
ti:kiuc f he South say, "'She is fit
only to product; couoa for our man
ufactories," or ' Her people are too
inoruat and indolent to establish a d
sustain manufactories" or "Th-.y
haven't braius enough to manage
steamship liues to foreign poits or
large wholesale houses iu, their pities,"
ot-c, &o.
How Ijng will our people thus re
main the suppliant vaus of their
coDquerersr lteavu grant tne time
is not far ahead when we shall see
them breakieg camp and proudly
moving into new Cuirtra, where they
will be freed from, the many miserable
and destroying complaints that now
be iege, and mage almost intolerable,
the very precipcts of their homes.
15 at what arc we ts do now, or
when the severe at hours pf the crash
comes?
Why, save your money, sell only
enough ci jtoo to make yourselves
easy and pay your factors and commis
b!ou u.ercbarits, wear j cloth-s
and when next spring comes plant a
mixed and only s-h a crop as your
actual means will sustain and, our
word for it, this course will make you
independent in less than three years.
Those who have spare capital sbou'd
establish manufactories and every one
should sustain their efforts. It is by
such means io part that the peo
ple of the North grow rich. They
make more money ty fell -denial and
strict economy thau by any otbtr
way and though we were once in a
condition to laugh at their examples,
wp are npt now. Wa have always set
the Yankees down as fools for being so
stingy, (aa we pleased to calj it), but
