The Immediate future of .the cot ton -grow.
Ing Interest Is a subject which deservedly at-
traots much attention. It Is pretty general
ly agreed now that prices must adrance, and
very materially, between this time and the
gathering of the crop of 1860. The old stock
of cotton Is well nigh exhausted, and (hat
which remains to be brought In is, for the
most part, of Inferior grades. The crop of
1865 was very smallthe war closed too late
in the season for the planters to change their
plan of operations, and by the first of May
It seems probable that the entire stock of de
sirable cotton will have found Its way to
market. Such Is the competition caused by
the foreign demand, that the higher claislfi
cations aro not now to be bought, save by
those who are sharp, enterprising, and well
acquainted with the market.
The shrewdest dealers In the fleecy sta
ple are now acting upon the belief that It
will go to one dollar per pound between this
time and the flrss of August next Another
year and we may hope that producers will
be better able to comprehond the situation.

"It Is true that the labor difficulty exists
there as elsewhere, that no satisfactory ar
rangements have yet, as a general rule, been
made between the planters and their former
slaves, that many of the planters have not
the means to pay wages and all outgoings for
a year before next season's crop can be
gemerau in, irom me absence or all the
credit and facilities which used to exist) and
still more, that tbey have not the education,

But despite all there difficulties the high
prices of cotton will certainly lead to the
planting of an extensive area In all this clsis
of country, and while many will fall, others
will succeed and make remunerative crops.

why boy or lease plantations for the obvious
reason mat u is mncn easier lor tbem to
learn the simple business of raising cotton
than It U for old planters to learn how to
retain and at the same time to control and

nave ntinerio regarded as uiue better tban
the beasts of the field. Were there enough
of such settlers the Sooth woald soon re
cover, but their number Is as yet too small to
aneoi mo aggregate yield very senonsiy.
"These remarks apply to the larger plant
ers, but If we tarn our attention to the small
growers, men who have hitherto produced
irom nve to niteen dsjos annuany, toe ques
tion presents quite a different aspect. These
men. of whom the number ts lance, were kept
nacK by tne slave system. They naa netincr
the capital nor the financial resources pos
sessed by the large planters, and to add the
iaoor or one nana to loeir farm tne enure
troceeds of two or three crops had to be
saved and risked, not only upon the life of
tne man oi wnom tney became tne owner,
but also upon his not ronnlor away. A mo

Impossible It was, under these conditions, for
the cultivation of tho land by small farmers
to be extended, and wnat an inoubns is re
moved from them by the abolition of slavery,
They will now be able to get temporary
labor on fair terms, when Jbey need It, and
will, therefore, In the natural order of things,
rely partially upon this resource, and be
tempted, by the high price of cotton, to In
crease the area of their cultivation consid
erably beyond what their own families could
manage. The comparatively large crop
grown this year In Tennessee has been mainly
produced by this class, and all through tho
South they are moving. In Texas, however,
next to Tennessee, we expect the largest Im
mediate results from this source, because the
class of smalt farmers Is already extensive In
that State, land is to M bad m unlimited
quabtlttes for a nominal price, and owing to
the extensive Immigration Into tho State
daring the war, particularly of the blacks
taken there for safety, seme quantity of extra
labor la available.
'It mar. Indeed, be stated of the whole
South, but pre-eminently of the States of
Tennessee and Texas, Inst so long as nign
prices or cotton continue exiraordinory de
velopment will occur among this small farm
ing class, who will ultimately eonstltute a
respectable yeomanry and form the back
bone of the country. These men and tho
Northern settlers, with occasionally a former
planter, or the eon of an old planter, who,
having bad his early prejudices somewhat
rubbed off In the army, will go with the
times, are the only hopes of this country.
As a class the large planters are as dead as
the old nohllltr ot France. Thev will strur-
gle a little, and then expire."
