ON THE WING.
DABLTHOTON, S. C., July, 1867.-Much has been
said, here and elsewhere, specially by writers and
declaimors in the North, in reference to the unwil?
lingness of Southern landholders to rent or sell
land to tho nogroes. There was truth in this state?
ment, and there was falsoh?od. Tho very truth
itself proved a falsehood, or ?quivalent to it in its
effect, because a portion only of the truth was re?
ported; a mere denial to rent or sell to negroes,
without giving the causes operating as prohibi?
tives. It may not, perhaps, be generally known
that the contrary was tried in many cases during
the past year; that planters rented out lands to
freedmen, the rent to be paid in a stipulated share
of the crop. But the results were not encourag?
ing. The freedmen, unaccustomed to exercise
control over themselves or their families, in many
cases did not work steadily. Others,'again, being
in too great haate to got rich, and novor having
had to exercise their judgments before in planning
work, they undertook too much, and too many
things, and the natural consequence was that the
crop suffered. A [total want of capital, however,
is the great drawback to all such efforts. They
lack almost everything. If by dint of industry
they should have accumulated, or if their former
owners should loan them a sufficient sum to enable
them to purchase the most indispensable imple?
ments, and perhaps, also, a mule, or broken down
plow or dray horse, they are without the necessa?
ry provisions to support themselves and ?.nimaia
during the winter, spring and summer months.
Perseverance is not a marked characteristic of the
negro race, and in many oases where th oy have been
battling with these difficulties, before the crop
was half made, thoy would be discouraged, and
not unfrequently abandon thu whole enterprise.
lu some cases, which came to my cognizance,
it is but fair to say, negroes, working on rented
land, wore successful, paid their rent, and bad the
satisfaction upon settling, to find something on
the credit side of the balance sheet. These, how?
ever, are the exceptions. Tho greatest difficulty,
perhaps, in this whole matter is the want of con ii -
dance of the planter in the freedman, knowing
him, as he does, to be in most cases altogether
unreliable. If the freedmen will show that they
aro alive to the binding foroe of a contract, and
will work as steadily and faithfully on their own
account, as under the direction and control of
the overseer, this difficulty will be in a great
measure removed. There will be kindness,and
mutual confidence, redounding to the advan?
tage of both, and a good understanding be?
tween the two races, which will cement a bond
of perpetual union and peace.
? - The planters np here are getting somewhat res?
tive under tho overdose bf lecturing, which has
been administered to them by newspaper men and
public speakers. They think they understand
"the situation;" andmore than that they are
quito witling to "accept'' it. They are fully alive
to tho fact that " the day for large plantations is
past," and that ."laud should be cultivated, in
small tracts."' And in fact there are few who arie
not willing to sella part of their land, if a pur?
chaser can be found. This is precisely an any
sen :ible man, knowing the circumstances of the
case, would conclude. Many of our people are
heavily in debt, and haye large landed possessions,
yielding them little or no return ;. what more
natural, therefore, than that they should endea?
vor to diminish their debts and increase their
? poaoe and comfort by selling a part of their landed
, estate to small settlers, and thus by the mere in
[ crease of population in any given space of coun try
I enhance the valuo of tho remainder of their binds
; very considerably, j . >?','<
I So with regard to the renting of land. There
are few who would not be willing to rent out a
portion af their lands if they could find persons
who, in the exercise of ordinary prudence, they
could be led to think would work the land to any
ad van tage, and pay the rant. Tho parties who
offer, as a rule, both black and white, are either ;
unskilled, known to bo poor managers, and devoid
alike of intelligence and enterprise. And in the
few cases where thoso disabilities do not obtain,
thoy are still without the necessary capital, small
even though that may be rated. This is indeed
tho. ono great drawback to the ex?cution of ali
euch f?chenles. Thc operatives have neither
capital nor credit, and the planter, from the vory
nature of th? case, can have no security for the
payment of his rent; and barely ab J o to help him?
self, he is not in a contusion, certainly not.at this
time, to raako advances of money, or even lend his
credit to his "clients." , . - M >
. jbe) conditions of the country, social, political,
and moro especially financial, for the present, at
least, prevent tho carrying into effect of any ex?
ton dodschemeof colonization. The land here is
usually in large plantations, with only one set of
buildings or "improvements," as they are usually
called. Now, if a portion at one of the distal ex?
tremities is rented cut to A laborer or small far?
mer, there is neither house, barn or stable. Tho
landowner is too much reduced in meaos at pre?
sent to undertake such a task himself. Even if ho
saw that, by adopting such a course, his land
would be certainly remunerative in a few years,
tho low stats of his exchequer would be a positive
veto to any such wise and benevolent enterprise.
For not only would this outlay yield no immediate
return ; such an enterprise would moreover ne?
cessitate a> considerable additional annuil outlay
for .several years to come.
Very few purchasers have offered, who have any
means whatever. Plenty of freedmen can be
found,'willing to buy on credit, and of coarse un?
able to give security for even the eventual pay?
ment of tho purchase money.
There is, therefore, ?Utle. encouragement thus
far for the parcelling out of landa, the turning of
large plantations into small farms. We have no
doubt, whatever, that in time this will come to
pass, but it must necessarily be a measure of slow
and gradual progress. The freedman, Uko the
laboring population of tho North and of other
countries, must loam industry and economy bo
fore ho can step into tho dignity of landed pro?
prietorship. He must endeavor, by frugality and
thrift, first to lay by a little money and get' a
"start," otherwise his too sanguine hopes of suc?
cess os on independent agriculturist will c*ome to
naught.
There is, in my opinion, entirely too mach im?
portance attached by the freedmon to the posses?
sion of land. Man never is, but always to be
blessed. It is hence natural for tho landless to
desire a ?trip of soil in their own right, and thoy
expect advantages from such proprietorship which
can be realized in but very few cases. In coun?
tries like France, Belgium and Western Gorruany,
Where land is divided and subdivided, and land?
lords can be found owning an eighth of an acre
only, the laboring classes and small proprietors
(here ono and the same) find it perhaps moro
difficult to live than the peasantry of uny other
country in Europe. Thoy contract dobts, mort?
gage their little hud, and unable to redeem it, as
must necessarily happen in very many instances,
they aro Boon without land again, and much more
vexed in spirit than if thoy had never owned any.
A few speculators and money lenders in this man?
ner can soon purchase a whole province, district
or State.
But Bnppose, with a view of preventing this un?
desirable result, the Legislature enacts a home?
stead-law, exempting from execution a certain
munmin m of laud. This will exorcise no influence
upon the indolent or thriftless laborer, and niako
bim industrious or economical. . Tho only certain
influence it will have is that it wiQ debar him from
getting any credit, just as wo may suppos? mu3t
have been the case in Judon, whero landed pos?
sessions reverted to their original allotted owners
every seventh year. Tho inevitable onsequonco
of course was that when "sold" in the sixth year
they could only bring the equivalent of ono year's
rent of thc land. No legal fiction can, for any
length of time, alter the standard of value; and in
the struggle between capital and labor, capital,
alwayB an.i everywhere, in tho end carries thc day.
I am tcmptcl here to quote tho philosopher
REID, wiioso langunga I am of course aware I am
somewhat wresting from its true intent, when ap?
plying it to this question. REID Bays: "We per?
ceive not mtterial things immediately-it ?B their
ideas, which ore the immediate objects of our
thoughts-and it is in the idea of everything that
we perceive its properties." It is the idea of a
thing, and not the thing itself, which seizes upou
tho imagination and runs away with it, entirely
untrammelled by prudence or judgment. So it is
with the idea of tho possession of land, which ie at
present viewed through the golden medium of a
lively, almost infantine fancy; and it is this picture
oft proprietorship, and its mmy blissful results,
th it exorcises John Lackland-which causea him
to overestimate tho boon, and be correspondingly
solicitons for its attainment.
The homestead experiment wilh freedmen is
now being made in Florida, whero the Unitod
States Government hos settled a nnmber of emi?
grants from this and adjoining States, donating
farms of eighty acres each. The result is precisely
what everyman of discernment anticipated, viz:
they are destitute, and altogether depondont npon
government rations for support. A man must be
taught to value property, othorwise it will bo of
little service to him, and the best education of this
kind unquestionably is acquired in the process of
working for whatever ho makes.
The poor man in tho country, it matters not
whether he is black pr white, must do as poor men
do in the city, work to the best of ability, and en?
deavor to get.the bett price bo can for his labor,
be careful and economical, and savo something
of his earnings. In duo course of time he will
be ablo to launch his own balk, if so ino'iued,
and if he continues in the exercise of the
same good qualities that helped him thus for, bo
may reasonably expect to get on and bo successful
in whatever field or enterprise he embarka.

[From the American Churchman.]
Insure In thc World Mutual Life Insurance
Company, New York
A BACHED DUTY.
"Men should often be put in remembrance to
take order for the Betting of their temporal es?
tates, whilst they art in heal?i"-Orders for thc
Visitation of the Sick.
Wo fear that a large majority of the clergy fail
in fulfilling this branch of duty. Wo do not allude
to tho fact now, however, for the purpose of find?
ing fault with our brethren; but only, in order to
justify ourselves in bringing tho subject of" Life
Insurance into our ?ditorial columns.
Wo do not believe that it ia possible for us to
say anything now upon this subject.
Although, however,- wo can say no more than
bas been already said, and said better, by many
others-still it may bo in our power to do somo
good, if only, by agitating tho subject, and pre?
senting it to some, .perhaps, who have never yet
given it much, if any, serious consideration.
And it is a subject, which comes vory legitimate?
ly within the scope of a Religious Paper; inasmuch
as it runs parallel with Christian duties of tho first
importance.
For wo hold, that there is no social duty of
greater weight-none, which is moro strictly bind?
ing upon every bead of a household-than that of
providing, not merely for the present, but for the
prospective and possible neods, of those, who, in
the Providence of Clod, look up to him, for sup?
port and protection.
"And we think trial wo have St. Paul with ns,
where be says:-1-lf any pr?vido not for his own,
and specially for those of his own house, ho hath
denied the. Faith, and is worse than an infidel."
1 Tim. v. 8.
Happily, however, it is so ordered, that in all or?
dinary cues, the natural impub es of feeling and
affection, in this matter, run parallel With the de?
mands or duty. So that-at least, as regards a
caro for the prospective interests of one's family,
which involves the Principle of Life Insurance-if
the diu y be neglected, such neglect will be found
to arise, in a vast majority of coses, ' not from want
of natural affection, nor from any doubt about tho :
incumbent obligations; but simply, from the fact,
that either the nutter hos never boon taken into
serious .consideration-or, having boen considered,
and perhaps doterrmned upon, it hos beon put
aside from time to time; ana so, tho duty still re?
mains unperformed.
But is not delay, in a matter of such extreme
importance, tn tielf criminal.* How terrible
must bo the self upbraiding* of a man, who-well
knowing that a mortal illness overtaking him, or a
fatal accident befalling him, in depriving his wife
and children of their natural protector, would,- at
the same time, east them, penniless and uhp:o>
vided fdr, upon tho cold charity of a selfish world
-and conscous, too, that, at a small sacrifico, he
might have provided for such a contingency -Jinds
himself dying, wi?i his duty undone /
Dearly th* unhappy mon. loves his wife and
children I Gladly would he lay down his life for
those objectsof his tenderest affection, if, by so do?
ing he might 'int secare them from utter poverty.
ana desolation' But it is loo tale! Gone-never
to return-is th) opportunity of saving them from
tho misery of dependence- and, it may be-of \
pinching want !
This? is an ajournent which all can understand;
and which, therefore, can reach the hearts and
consciences of ali,
Wo have said this mach upon tho subject, be?
cause we conscicn iously believe tho practical ap
plication of the principle of Life Assurance, to b
on* of the chief BO?AI mercies whioh the love of
the G HEAT FATHER has conferred upon ns;- be?
cause we behove that the well-established Institu?
tions which do velo pt and apply tho principle, are
among the greatest, ind noblest, and most b?n??
ficient, of, all Christan charities-the direct and
legitimate out-growth of tho Christian Faith.
And aa such, wo propose, in a future number, to
commend tliem to aile!n sst s of our readers, with
especial reference to tho clergy of the parishes; en- -
doavorrng, at the' suso time, to meet certain con?
scientious objections, which somo good, b,ut, we
thinks mistaken person, have entertainedagainst-\
them.
