This they are ennbied to do, by raising everything on their planitations necessary for their wants. and considering cotton as the result of their surplus labor. llowi many plan ters are there in this atil- other 'StateA, who make:large crops of rottoin to the hand, but save little money. Ol the con trary, are there not ve'ry many who dinie little cotton, but are- enabled to put up all it sells for. Any one the.lenst acquainted with domestic econtomy, will see how this $irises. Every plantation has certain waits to satisly, mnd expenses ,toiincur: supply the one anid defray the other, and all over will be clear aigatin. A -system of figures1 has frequently proved it best, to Mnaske iiore-cotton, nat buy all the plantation i waans; but few rintiers have ever grown rich, who did not pursue an opposite course.

But, howvVer much agrictiltural surveys will-do towards adivnneing our agrieuhtural htiterest,' the creation of new agricultural wants will do.still itmore. Take a familiar lIastance. A few years since, the Cliiirles toP vegelable market was the mbst misera.I able in the Union: beenuse its chizetis were not a vegetal~e~ising people. A new population with new wants has grown up, and behold the consequence. 'The Charles. toLn Vegetable-market hishecome lne.of he'best supplied in the Union; a tlarg e nitint or capital is empiloyed in. farming , For that purpose; aid fully $100,000 is ni. rtually derived from this sotirce otif labor. I large domestic trade is ithus put int 1-10i tion, and not nitly this, Charleston, like tome of her Northern Sisters, is beginning :) carry oni an export Irade in several kinds If egetables; and the Northern cities are owiw -the annual purchasers of some thou- t ands of dollars of the labors of our Charles. on farmers. The depressed condition of our agricul tire hits been so oftdn ;iresented to us, that ye are apt to consider it worse than it eully is. We musist not be deceived how ver. WVhile our agricultural resources are Pbeen very imperfectly developed, our I lanters and farmers ore far from being in I he distressed state represented. And if re look at thi -present nnd past condition f our agriculture, it will a ppear that our anters have'actually undergone many im- t rolvementis.

To bring out all this reforni, must 11 ave cost something; and the people must c ave been at work to paty for it.
