E ITOBS: It is generally conceded tba a newspaper expresses the sentiment i of the community in which it is published. If so, I, for | one,* must protest against suoh arti? cles as your "leader," of the 16th ?hst., headed "Dead Capital," being construed as in icative of the senti? ments, wishes or ictions of the plant? ers of South C rolina. Yon assert that tho land-hp biers of this State "have made nc effort whatever to convert their hundreds and thousands j of uncultivated; acres into living, active capital." i This is a mistake, for I know of ? o th individual and combined efforts'having been made, but as yet with doubtful success. I, myself, positively engaged several I families to como from the vicinity of j Portland, Maines bot the great ure, I suppose, prevmted their coming South. Other nntlemen have done, and are doing, t?o same in this Dis? trict. In fact, siveral planters have received foreigners, and were unable as well as unwilliig to keep them. The State did appoint a Commis? sioner of Immigration, and did ap? propriate $10,0(0 to organize a scheme that it wi'.l require millions to perfect; but if she, in her great desire for recuperation, could only appropriate $10?)00, how much can be reasonably Qcpected from indi? vidual planters, most of whom have scarcely been abe to subsist them? selves and familbs for the past two years? Certainly not an advance of forty dollars (cunenoy) per head for laborers, as is required by the State ! Commissioner in Iiis circular, and for laborers, too, who, though they may have seen cora growing, certainly i never saw cotted, peas, cane, sweet potatoes, or mott of our Southern vegetables, under cultivation; all of whom would be entirely unaccus? tomed to our habits of life, and most I of whom, in a tvelve-month, would be unable to understand the simplest direction, or ask, ia Euglish, for their simplest want. F#r such laborers, the Commis? sioner thinks it bit reasonable to ad? vance forty dollartper head to import them, and then t?oontract with them at one hundred aol fifty dollars per annum, for men, and one hundred dollars for womei. As well might | you bo expected it pay journeyman's wages to your devi. You instance th) success of Virgi? nia in the importation of labor. This is no encouragement for South Carolina "to go ard do likewise," for the climate, soil aid staple products of Virginia ure viery similar to those of the valleys of-Switzerland. Vir? ginia is essentialia grass, grain and stook-growing Stfco, with a climate ! similar, and a soil luperior, to that of tho Swiss. Aud yet, yon adviso Sonth Carolina, t moro Southern State, with hotter climate and less fertile soil, and tinily different pro? ducts, to go to a horo Northern Eu? ropean country yr laborers. Tho effort lind bettet be made from Franco, Italy, Moticco. yes and Gozt< go. J. am sure wejire better prepared just now to mantle tho immigrants from the last u.mtioncd country than wo are to ad?pt ourselves, to the changes which j would necessarily j arise from the infix of the hordes of ' Qermans and Irishmen into South Carolina, that yjou would seem to have come amongus. True, Messrs. 1*1? tors, we have the | land, and that lard is "dead capital," but it is perfectly impossible for the ownors to convert it into living copi* tal, by adopting t$o scheme proposed by the Commissioner, and advocated by you. As well might you bo ex peoted to issue a d?\ily newspaper from a forty-horse pnntiog press, when yon had not a pound of steam to turn a wheel. I might' tell you, and do tell the Commissioner, through Sou, send me ten families who will eoome permanent settlers, and I will give each of them fifty acres of land, with wood, water, ac arable land enough, on each tract to do them a life time; and I will biro them as laborers for the first year or two, until they "g?t a start in thc world." I care not whether tbey are day-labor? ers, mechanics, or house servants, I'll employ the whole ten families at reasonable wages. This proposition, doubtless, would be made by hun? dreds of the laud-holders of tho State. But when you and the Com? missioner proposo to me to advance for the importation of these ten fa? milies, (say twenty laborers,) eight hundred dollars, and then further, to promise to pay them for the first year's labor, (when they will be sim? ple apprentices,) twenty-five hundred dollars, out of which I am refus dcd i my $800 advancement; to my mind, tho scheme becomes simply prepos? terous. For myself, I prefer cling? ing to the South Carolina planter's "old prejudices," if by these you mean the "nigger," for he can be in? duced to work, if well paid, and after ho has bogged through the slough of politics for a while, will glide un? consciously into his proper position, the hewer of wood and drawer of water for the South. "Rome was not built in a day," neither should Northern Europe be emptied into the Southern States, in a twelve-month. If the tide of im? migration, which now flows iuto New York, were to breast the gulf stream, and pour its myriads into Chnrleston, Savannah and Mobiles provisions conld not be had for the asking, I assure you. It is questionable whether South Carolina has, this prolific year, produced a sufficiency of breadBtuffs for home consumption; and if she has not, the importation of thousands of consumers would, for the ensuing year, be equivalent to another drought.
