WTx? Southern Crops.? One of
"encouraging circumstances in
ultnral condition und prospects
Sontb. is the experiment which it
low successfully made in the way of
iversity of products. Hitherto king
lieu lias allowed no rival, nor even ac?
cessory, near his throne. A prediction,
'ten years ago, that any of the cotton-rais?
ing States would in 1875 have a surplus
of cereals would have excited an incre?
dulous smile. Yet the States of Tennes?
see, Arkansas, Mississippi and Alabama
will this years have enough and to spare.
In addition to this unprecedented grain
yield, the old staple, though reduced in
acreage, has, by a more thorough system
?<&{ cultivation, rewarded the planter us
never before, and they boast of an inde?
pendence that has heretofore buen un?
known to that portion oi the country.
They claim that With their surplus of
oread-stuff they can obtain the means by
which they will be enabled to hold their
-cotton, take advantage of the market,
And sell for cash, instead of following the
?practice that has almost universally ob?
tained of mortgaging their crops early in
the season at ruinous figures. The agri?
cultural resources and capabilities of the
South have never yet been fully develop?
ed. It is able to feed itself as well as to
clothe, in certain essential respects, both
.itself and the world. The sovereignty oi
cotton would never have been disputed
if it had enjoyed the aid of such auxil?
iaries as tho cultivation of the cereals and
manufacturing industry.
. A Word About Firo Insurance.
Ma. Editor: Please give inc space in
'? our columns to say a word about fire
'?risurauco. Many experienced business
men urge that it is not only '?amazing"
-tuitunvise for citizens to insure their
property in any but home companies.
L think ! can show that there is a great
rrror in their view of the subject. The
history of all great conflagrations demon?
strates the unwisdom of depending en?
tirely upon home companies for insur?
ance, without regard to strength or
solvency. Many great fires have occurred
in tho United States during the last forty
i ears, among which I would enumerate
The following: In New York, in the year
183S, 825,000,000 of property was dc
? f. troy od; in Newark, N. J., 1835, $2,000,
lOOOrin Charleston, S. C, 1838, $4,000.
000; in Pirtsbnrg, Pa., 1845, $6,000,000;
Albany, N. 1840, 33,000,000; Atlanta,
>hi., !?*68niul 1850, SI,000,000; Charlcs
? an, S>. C 1802, $2,UOO,000; Trov, N. Y.,
3*02, $3,000,000; Vicksburg, Miss., I860
and 1807, $1,000,000; Mobile, Ala., 1807,
?1,000,000; Portland, Maine, 18G5, $10,
?GCLOOfl; Chicago, 1B71, $60,000,000;
Boston, 1872, $20,000,000; Chicago, 1874,
?8,000,000, with numerous others in
' ther cities, amounting to lrom $100,000
to $1,000,000. The event of the Chicago
tire bankrupted sixty insurance compa?
nies, with capitals varying from $100,000
to $500,000; that in Boston ruined about
.-sweaty-live companies. In either ofthc
sbove cities named, nearly all the local
'omptmies wore rendered insolvent.

pany, into which you have paid a pre?

a company, with n prospect of not being

V Address of Gen. Hampton.
The proceedings of :'i3r i-uri ion of th
Hampton Logion woro opened by Gen.
Hampton, oh follows:
Fkllow-Soldleiih or toe Leo ion: In
assuming the position to which you hnve
called me, it wonld be ungracious to you,
nnd unjust to myself, were I not to tell
you how deeply tbis notion, on your
part, and this warm greeting,. have
touched mywheart. To liis this scene
possosses a peculinr and tender signifi?
cance, for it brings back vividly the
memories and associations of the past.
At the first call to nrms in the lato war a
gallant baud of patriots, who were
destined to win'Tor themselves an undy?
ing fame, did me the honor to choose me
as their leader. On this day, fourteen
years ago, these ties, which bind true
men and brave soldiers togelher in
bonds that can never be broken on earth,
were cemented by the best blood of our
comrades on the glorious Held of
Manassas. It is not for mo to tell you,
on this occasion, of that heroic and
desperate light; our gallant and dis?
tinguished comrade, who is to speak for
'the Legion to-night, will doubtless do so
fully ond well. But this JL will say, that
a long-and large exporionce, gained on
many of the great historic fields of the
war, has convinced me, beyond all
doubt, that tho Legion had the good
fortune to do more on that memorable
day to turn what threatened at one time
to be a defeat into a glorious victory,
than any other command engaged. Far
bo it from me to detract the fame of any
of the brave troops who shared with us
tho perihi and glories of that bloody day,
and still more unbecoming would it be
in me to olnini any merit for xuyscly. It
Was only our good fortune to come on
the field at the proper place at a critical
moment of, the battle, and your high
and stubborn courage it was, then, men
of the Logion, that stemmed the tide of
retreat, and my only merit it was, that
in response to what I feii was the instinc?
tive cull of every heart in the command,
I led you where the lire was the heaviest.
Hut I do not propose to touch on themes
which belong to our orator to-night. In
his hands your fame will be safe, and
history will perpetuate it. Mine is the
less high but not less grateful task of
thanking you for the renewed evidence
you give me of your confidence and
aflection, by calling me, on this auspi?
cious occasion of our first re-union, to
direct j'our deliberations, now in peace,
as you then called on me to direct your
conduct in war. Believe uic, my dear
old friends, that I appreciate this honor
from the bottom of my heart. Nor is
this tho only debt of gratitude due by
me te you. I have to thank you for your
constant exhibition during tl^e whole
warof the very highest soldierly qualities;
for having sustained me with an un?
faltering trust; for having entitled your?
selves by your conduct to all the love
and pride a commander could ever
lavish upon his troops, and for having
placed on your historic and unblemished
banner my name, thus transmitting to
our children, for all generations to come,
the fact of which I am so justly proud,
that you deemed mo worthy to lead
"The* Hampton Legion." Although
the exigencies of tho servico demanded,
in tho course of the war a separation of
tho constituent parts of the Legion, thus
taking a portion, for a time, from my
immediate command, I watched with
the deepest interest the conduct of all,
and I i'clt always tho highest pride in the
noblo achievements of overy branch of
the command. To mo you were always
my Legion, an\1 wherever yon bayonets
gleamed, or your sabres flashed, or your*
artillery thundered, my heart was with
yon, for there my men woro lighting, nnd
I felt a prido like that a father feels at
tho noble deeds of his sons. Knowing
this, you ean readily understand, ti ied
and trusted friends of the Legion, :!..tt I
us'.- no idle words when I hi I you heart?
ily and cordially welcome! welcome to
one and all, to each n:td every arm of
the command! Cuch of these arms e,.i>
tribulcd full share to I'm common
glury of the whole, and you have won
fame sufficient !'"?? nil. Lei there bo no j
nng< Herons rivalry i > lw< < n the different j
brauch? i of tho command, but only a
generous emulation. We nil fought at

loct how many of our brave comrades
were strick* n down as they wen- bearing
it to victory, and how many men, alas!
fell beneath its folds as its pathway
through the battle was marked by death.
I know, 1 feel, that you remember all
these things, and thank God, that with
them, you can remember too with pride
and exultation thnt in all the varied
scenes through which that banner has
passed, not ono breath of dishonor or of
disloyalty, not one stain of cowardice or
of cruolty has tarnished its unblemished
folds. Torn by cannon shot And shell,
riddled by rifle bulls, blackened by tho
smoke of battle, it is nt?l, to tho cyo of
faith, as lustrous ?8 when it was first un?
furled in all its prido of beauty, and rich
in aj glory thnt deVcat can never sully.

yell.) Comrades of the Legion! I bring
back to you, uh the fittest offering to
grace our first re-union in peace, that
anner which yon so nobly illustrated in
war. Though it will nover again "bmvu
the battle and the breeze," yet as long as
one shred of its battlo-scarred folds clings
to another, it will tell you, in language
moro eloquent than words, of the impe?
rishable renown you won for it and lor
yourselves. It will speak constantly to
your hearts of our dead comrades, and it
serves to remind you always that, when yon
furled it forever, yon pledged your sotdh rig
honor to observe inviolule the tenns on which
yon surrendered. It will thus stand, as a
perpetual symbol of your plighted faith,
not alone in the past but lor the future.
It will be the strongest guarunlee to those
who so often viel in. the deadly fight, th<t( the
men irho proved themselues su true to it
while it rluimrd their allryhtnce, cannot
prove false to the new oldigatious (hey have
Incurred. All brave men who met yon in
battle will.honor you for honoring the
llag you once upheld so bravely, dung
to so devotedly, and which you now che?
rish asa memorial of your fallen brethren.
And while you cannot expect them to
sympathize with the cause in which it
was borne, they will not fail to respect
the men who bore it in so loyal and
knightly a fashion.
The people of Carolina can point with
pride to one historic banner which ex?
acts to-day lhe homage of the winde
country. When your forefathers and
mine followed the heroic. Washing-,
ton, as his meteor llag swept to victory
at Cowpcnsand Eutaw, they could scarce?
ly have hoped that their descendants
should see that llag, honored by 40,000,
000 Americans, ere the young republic,
for which they gave their blood, had at?
tained the lirst century of its existence.
The brave people who were our enemies
Kit) years ago, forgetting the, animosities
and strife which then arrayed England
and America inarms, forgetting that they
once call?, d "Washington, and Itutledge,
and Lanrens, and Sunder, Pickcus and
Marion, "rebels," this day pay willing
honor to the devotion, the patriotism and
the coumgc of our revolutionary sires.
If justice, truth, moderation, concilia?
tion and statesmanship direct the coun
scle of those who were the victors in the
recent war: if free citizens of free and
equal States can maintain and perpetuate
in this confederacy, under the constitu?
tion our fathers-established, the liberties
for which they fought, then it may be
that when another century bos rolled by,
this banner of yours will be deemed by
others than ourselves worthy as repre?
senting truth, faith, honor and courage,
to be placed by the side of the honored
flagofEutaw! It may be given to our
children to see this auspicious day. To
us, who are standing on this great divid?
ing lino which separates the first century
of our country's life from that unknown
future which lies before us, will remain
only the aspirations and the prayers of
the patriot. Cheered by these, we can a;
least rc-cchO the words of Carolina's
gifted and lamented patriot and poet:
' Did liberty rejoice! Aye, though its
Bo fur or near, these clouds shall yet be
With the large promise of the coming
In the meantime, solemnly appealing
to the great tribunal on high to vindicate
the purity of our motives in peace and in
war. we tenderly and reverently place
among our most precious relics onr loved
t!iou^!i conquered banner.
"Furl that banner softly, slowly;
Treat it gently, it is holy,
For it droops above the dea l.
Touch it hot; unfold it never,
Let it droop there furled forever!
[?'or the people's hopes are dead!"
