Correspondence of the Yorkrille Enquirer.
LETTER FROM MISSOURI. Reading, Pike Co., Mo., May 15. I am indebted to some kind friend for the Enquirer, and thinking a short letter from this State would interest many of your readers, I have concluded to jot down a few items pertaining to matters in this great Northwestern State. The present prospect for wheat is remarkably fine in this section, and as there was a large area sown last fall, we reasonably look for a large yield. A large crop of corn is 1 eing planted, stimulated by the great failure the past year, of that invaluable crop to wes tern farmers. The general health of this country was never, in my recollection, better. The past winter was remarkably sewere. The earth, for more than two months, was covered with snow from sixteen to twenty-two inches deep. This was an occasion for harvesting an unparalleled crop of ice on the western rivers. One firm in St. Louis cut and housed, at the mouth of Salt river, two. miles above the city of Louisiana, m this county, 21,500 tons. For six weeks they gave employment to one hundred and thirty hands and used an elevator run by steam, capable of hoisting out of the river into the house one hundred and twenty tons per hour. The ice is first chequered by an ice plough, drawn by a span of mules, in squares of 22 inches, then broken off in slabs thirty feet long and floated to the elevator wheel. Then it is broken into blocks of the size mentioned. After the first ten days the ice attained a thickness of 22 inches, thus making cubical blocks of that size. During this six weeks a sentinel walked on the edge of the ice in the river, back .and forth, with a large stick sufficient to prevent ice forming in the space opened each day, which must be kept open, so that the floating to the elevator may not be obstructed. When the thermometer stood twenty-four degrees below zero, you will conclude this was no fancy job, yet one man attended to it each night for six weeks, for which he was paid $3.00 per night. This ice is all for the Southern market One house on the south bank of Salt river, on the R. R. - - . /Ml A track, containing OUU tons, goes to uaiveston, Texp.9. This same company have three packing houses, on the Illinois river, that packed au aggregate *of one hundred and twenty thousand tons the past winter. For use in the city of Louisville, several houses of one thousand tons each were packed. Two years ago the company above referred to filled their houses on Salt river and held them till the past season, and during the raging of the epidemic in the South their crop on hand was shipped and sold at a net profit of $20,000. Having already written more than I intended on a cold subject, I will close by adding a few words on one a little warmer, vis.: the negro stampede.from the cotton and rice fields of the South, to th8 cold prairies of Kansas. It may, and most probably will, prove a cool affair to them the coming win"" ter, as it is in many respects a worse clime for the colored man than Missouri or Illinois. The negroes of Missouri who are supposed to be better acquainted with the opportunities offered in Kansas than their brethren in the Southern States, manifest but little disposition to change their homes. They are more disposed to consolidate their strength in the woodland counties bordering on the Mississippi river than going west beyond the Missouri river in Western Missouri or Kansas. With none other than humane feelings towards the unfortunate African race, it seems to me cruel and inhumane to hold out any inducement to tbem to leave the aunny South, the clime best suited to tbem, and undergo ** * ' ?? * ??? a fiah tne cons ana pnvauuus mviueut tu a nwuuoi settlement in any of the wild prairies of the West. That Kansas is a fine country of land is admitted and is settling up with a hardy race of Northern men?a race unacquainted with .the peculiarities of the African; a race, too, that has rooted hira out of every Western State, and he will find to his great discomfiture the sad mistake he has made, in one year after arriving thefe. What would all the negroes of York county do if they could, by sopae interposition of Providence, be lifted and set down iflthout cost, three huudred niles west of Kansas city, the nearest point at which they can ol> tain homesteads, on lands destitute of timber, where warm cabins, heavy warm clothing, and plenty of strong nutritious food are indispensables; when the thermometer drops to twenty and often to thirty degrees below zero? Thos. M. Carroll. In a case before Judge Erskine, of the United States Court at Savannah, Ga., where a colored woman was ordered from the "white" deck of a steamer to a place below, where accommodations were provided for her class, and failing to comply was put-off the boat and afterwards instituted suit for damages, Judge Ersksine has decided that common carriers have the right to provide difiertnt accommodations for different classes of passengers and to assign each class to its quarters Judge Woods, of the United States Circuit Court at Atlanta, has also recently decided in a school question that equality does not mean identity, and that separate accommodations may be provided and insisted upon. ? The sugar and rice crops of Louisiana sold last year for more than $20,000,000. They were produced on less than one fifth of the cultivated acreage of the State. The sugar crop this year promises fairly, and the rice acreage is slightly increased. . * No one can think clearly when suffering with Headache.
