LARGEST CITI CIRCULATION, MKMPHISi Satarday Evening, May 12th, 1866 FAILURE TO OKOW C0TT0H, It has very much the appearance of a work of cruelty to spoil the calculations of the cotton lords of Europe and the North. Yet it is a work that must be done, speedily. The magisterial manner in which thev cast the depth and breadth nf the potton vield this season, must be splashed with cold water and made ri diculous. The foolish idea that the freed man will grow cotton by a sort of en chantment, or produce it all over his body as a sheep produces wool, is an ab surdity too monstrous to be indulged except in the fictions that wallow and luxuriate in yellow covers, and claim H .BPEH and his brother philanthropists as channels of communication with the public And so the fleecy dream will dissolve. There will be no such thing as driving the freed men into pens and hearing them for cotton every month or 'I'U .l.n a Hnna n ir.A.1 fn Ih.ml . . fc l"U. 1 1IC DiaillD UUMIt ., ...".J , , .... ., , , . we aoubt it sensioie men nave, at any period of the world, Bhown less aptitude to compare agencies with results, than .u.. .1.,1. ii.n.nn .IslJ J cotton in the South as the fruit of the . t U COW nuv icii H uvu esa j u.v present season. We grieve to say tbat - t . . . fwm tin ulan J1CIUUUI9 men unij - the cotton lotus. One gentleman thinks the yield will be fully four million bales. Another is astonished to hear the opinion expressed that Memphis win not receive ana snip, tne coming auiurnu anu winter, fully four hundred thousand bales. It is painful to reflect that any business man will permit himself to embrace such a transparent delusion. Where is the cot- -ton to come from? Who are to produce it? Of the four million negroes in the South at the commencement of the war, I fully one million, according to the best authority, are dead. FortT per cent of this number were producers of cotton, They are to be subtracted from the amount I of labor in the cotton fields. Of the three I million left living, how many are availa ble as laborers ? How many of them did the war kill, maim and demoralize 7 They are to be subtracted from the amount of labor. Before the war, two-thirds of the colored women were field bands. It is the general report now, that they re- fuse to go into the fields at all. They hare exchanged the plough and hoe for finger rings and crinoline. Hoops won't do in the cotton fields. They are to be subtracted from the amount of available lubor to grow cotton. With all the negro labor in the South under the compulsory system, the production of cotton wanted half a million of reaching 5,000,000 bales in lKSfl. Tbat was the greatest amount ever obtained. With the same number of laborers under the free trill or volun tary system, it is not extravagant to say, not more than hulf that amount would be produced. 1'bis is not all. Every poor white man in the Cotton Stntes was to the extent of his own personal labor a producer of cottou. How many of this class were killed or maimed by the war ? The bone and sinew of the South the tillers .of the soil they fell at Shiloh, Chicka. muuga, on the Potomae, nt Clpttysburp, at Antietam, in the Shenandoah, from Fredericksburg to Richmond and Pe tersburg all over the South, every where. They are to be subtracted from the number ot those who grow cotton. But there still remains another apect of this cotton supply question: the young plant is in many places dying from causes well known to cotton plant ers. The seed, in general, was defee-1 five. Much of that which came up has I either died from want of coneenial weather. oK. if livins-. ia droonina- and hopeless The supply of seed is ex- baosted, and immense tracts of the best cotton lands might be replanted with soiue prospect of partial yield, but for this misfortune. Then the worm, quick ened into life by the agencies at war on the cotton plant, is cutting it down in many places. This disaster may be comparatively trifling, but it still may be great In tome localities the plant it doing well. In sandy lands we may an ticipate a pretty fair yield. Ia fact, from tbe uplands, mainly, the next supply must come. The bottom lands have generally been inundated and the plant mined. On tbe banks of the Missis' aippi, for more than Cvt hundred miles, much -of the 'cotton lands art under water. Planters who Lave expended immense sums of money to stock plan tations, have, in many case, been driven out Nearly all the Southern water courses hart overflowed their valleys and injured tbe plant These thiags, all talta together, do not snake oat a favor- the position of Head Center of the Fe eble caee for cotton. The present price I niant, which was accepted by Chief Ex- of it is in strange disproportion to tbe I iroj jctivt prospect Men are being ruined daily because they are compelled to sell cotton at present prices. If they coold hold ontil the facU wt have tuted yield their fruit, they wonld confront profits instead of losses. Wt fcav ooly to aay, in conclusion. that the amount of labor imported from elsewhere to grow cottou, ianot uffieient to modify the facts we have stated. A CRAVE CBIME, Hereafter, when politicians make pro fessions, or announce sentiments as the rule of their conduct, they should be re quired by the people to give bond and security for their adherence to them, The late debate in the Lower House of Congress on the Constitutional Amend- ment, brought Mr. Banks out He recarciea mis as tne most import ant question that could be presented to Congress or the country. He believed the organization of governments in the insurgent States could only be sateiy made by effecting a change in the basil or political society in tne nouinern States. If nntouched it left the enemies of the country in a condition to renew war. . iberelore, no proposition roei nis entire approval, which did not effect a nt;,nl prion era in the basis of Dolilical goc;ety ; tnese States. But he did not nor would he .I., .on , any one tlieorv of errtpci me xiuubc iu .uvu, m. uyimwuBi ernment of the United States had full authority to extend the elective franchise to the colored poople of the South, but he did not think it tiBd tne power, ine nnVilip nr.ininn of the country was such at this moment as to make it imposstble.

The Mobile Tribune, of the 8th, thus refers to the recent electism that occur- I red in that city : Judge Rapier was elec- ted Circuit Judge ; Judge Chamberi-aik, Judge of the City Court, and Raphael Semmes, Probate Judge, without a dis- senting vote that we have heard of. The cause was that there was no opposition. There was not a drunken man or a row at the polls. Everything was conducted with the most exemplary decency. It was a charming election, and the only one of the kind that we recollect of, where so important offices were at stake. We wish it could be so always. MEETI50 TO-NIGHT. The meeting called for this eveuiug, at the Engine-house, on Desolo street, pro- pones to discuss a subject of momentous importance. It is the initiatory step to a movement to be made by the outraged people of Tennessee. It is proposed to appeal to the President of the United States for protection from those among us who, in the name of authority, have struck down every right of freedom, le gal and traditional. Let the people think of this, and not fail to go to the meeting. TO DAY'S PAPER. Many persons into whose hands this number of the Public Ledger may come, will not attend church lo-morrow.

It not only passed without amendment, mid just as it came from the Reconstruction Com mittee, but secured a large majority over the requisite two-thirds vote. This was contrary to tlieairticipntions of the most ardent friends of the amendment. It was. in fact, a strict pnrty vote, with the exception of U. U. smith, of Kentucky, and fbelos, ot Alnrrinnd. .who vote with the Democrats against it.

Davis. The latter and his counsel have been so officiallv informed. The House Judicia ry Committee, in the meantime, is pur suing its investigation into his nlleged complicity in the assassination plot The Committee hope to be able to report to the House at an early day, probably next week. The veto message of the Colorado bill has been completed by the President and will doubtless be sent to the Senate to morrow. It is believed tbat the principa ground of objection to the bill is the in sufficient population of the Territory to form a atate. It seems to be regarded as quite certain that this veto will be at least sustained. Both Houses have finally passed a bill levying a duly of twenty per cent ad valorem on all cattle, beeves and sheep imported into the I mtcd states. It will be sent tu the President for bis signature to-morrow. 1 he principal object or the bill is to prevent tbe Canadians from running sheep across the line, thenriug off their wool on American soil and then running them back again, jms to avoid tbe tariff on wool. A poor depositor who had $3ft0 in the recently exploded Merchants' Rational Bank tollowed the President into the in stitution to-day and threatened to kill him if he did not pay him.
