Editor of the CUrio s-Idier : 1 have freiieut!y -n the tstrint ut to the e fleet that, 'nine-tenth of tho people ore engaged in agriculture iu this State, and y-t nint of tho laws that have been, pan-ed hav for the benefit, directly or indirect!, d capitalists," meaning other eapitsl'uts than farmer or agricultural. Ii is perhapa true that oine-tenth of the people of Mi-iipp are engaged in agriculture, but ik 1 Dot true that -most of the laws that have been pass ed have been for the benefit, directlv or Indirectly, of capitalist and as a Miiflppiao jealou of the fame of the Stale, I protest against such defa mation, and demand specification of uie on repeated charge that the legis- latioa 01 tne State has been arain.t the great paramount interest of the people and for the few instead of the many. 1 deny toe charge, and assert that there is unon our alalia hivika more das legislation in the interest of agriculture tbaa ofsiuy other. More than this,. I challenge those so ready to assert that, most of the law of the Ktaie have been passed for the benefit of capitalists, to mention a sin gle taw mat lias been so passed. I have some familiarity with the law of the State, and if there is one which uiav lustly be charired as havinir liean ed lathe interest of raliitmliat nlhar than laud owner and landlords, I do not recall It Our is aa agricultural State and must continue to h. ah desire the advancement aud succes of the great controlling Interest of th? aiaie, auu legislation Ua been ttiaped in the interest of agriculture. There 1 hardly a law unou our statute book noi so aeitgncu, alwaya exoeptiug a shameful exemption in favor of hanks which crept luto the revenue law oi inns, auu wdlcb could not have been passed, it It had been understood I speak Dot of such fran.la a. Il.at which the Legislature will make haste 10 correct, out or lue general course of legislation, aud ourpermaneut bo.lv of law, and ,as to that defy contradic tion. Another itateinont equally destitute of foundation In fact, is often made, via 1 That agriculture pay more than cigmy per com or the taxes intlila State. If the sense lu which thi assertion i made it that agriculture, a the chief wealth-producer lu thi State, ulti mately hears the gioatur burduu, it Is true, but lu the sense that they who owe and cultivate land a agricultur ist, pay more than 80 per ceut. of tax es, It I wide of the mark. While about nine-tenth of the peo ple of Mississippi it may be, are em ployed lu agriculture, t s very nii.ct tiouable, If they pay oue-thlrd of State and county taxes. It I time the truth ou thi subject should bo known and recognized.

A sort of blight different in many respects Irom any other evil of the tort erer known in this region, ha destroyed hundreds of acres of the growing plant The trouble act in about a week airo. during the very warm weather.
