B K. WATCU, >P«biith*ri. Q. A. PIK 2. f 11« dàmtte&ëme-t Northern Immigration. •In its long and rancorous indict ment against the people of this and other States involved in the late re bellion, the Faneuile Hall Address asserts : "They will not encourage Northern immigration with a system of small freeholds und free labor; nor will capital and labor go there from the free States under present auspi Â single glance at the Southern press, from North Carolina to Texas, decisively refutes the first of the above assertions, The Journals of all the Southern States which have suffered the ravages of war denote their want of labor aod manifest an enger desire for industrious and peaceful immi grants, from the North or from Eu rope, to settle in them and contribute to their agricultuarl and commercial prosperity and to their social welfare and stability. It is true they do not wish the presence of political incendi aries ; they prefer the room to the company of pes tient interlopers who would come, not to build up, but to destroy ; whor-e track is as poisonous as a centipede's, and whose mission would be, as that of the school whose piisonoua inspirations they have im io>d »ad ever been, to sow the upas so'd< of hatred, suspicions and plot infT», of wr> ng and vengeance, strife a d anarchy. The disciples of this crnt-d whose m h les religion is a mal r-Uiciioti, have*! ever thought uf iden 11) i g ti.« « elve« with the fate of th ■ people tlu-y aspire to ruin. Their niituigra.iot. h like that of S itan when lie eross-d the wilds of chaos to t urse •'■he eirth, and when he entered P.ira dise, wi h a spirit almost as malignant as theirs, touepnpulate it, not to live • ti i\ The .'•out h can well dispense *iib these civilizers who know only now to organise disolation, with these recotistiue ors whese work is the archi tecture of ruin. But there is no place in the South where the imttiigraiit who may co ne iii good faith will not he gladly reeeiv ed. On every hand a freehold and a homestead await him. He wiil be ^rud^ed nothing which labor may honestly earn or talent faitly win. It will be no matter of quarrel if he seek .inly to advance his personal fortunes, i'or in doing tli«t by justifiable means he would necessarily assist to build up the general prosperity. Fixed residence and the accumulation t f the fruiw of wholesome labor and legiti mate enterprise would be a sufficient guarantee against incivism. It is not in the nature of a man to hate the laud in which he lives, aud loves and honestly toils. With true manhood, with tha generous soul and the loyal heart, home is the sweetest name of patriotism. Let immigrants from whatever quarter,—from Massachu setts even, where the prinaiple element of political education ie ignorance and hatred to the South—eatablish them selves in Southern homes as part of the Southern p pulation having inter ests in common and involved in the same destiny, and they will assuredly become Southern enongh for all the needs of good citizenship and practi cal patriotism. The old proverb would not be contradicted here ; birds are not given to defiling their own nests, But there are winged creatures of evil otnen and horrid appetite, 1 which nidificate among lofty crags or in dark and inaceessibb recesses, and go fo th through the valleys and over the plains to feast on death aod putre faction, then fly back, "flapping from out their condor wings invisible wo." Such may symbolize the character of those Northern men who concern themselves about the South no further than to make it the theatre of destruc tive sehe nes, by which thay are ever ready to benefit as a thief mty benefit by a fire but of wh >se d ingers they ; are ctref il to keep out of the reach. This is the kind of prudence ex pressed in the latter 11 tuse of the pas « hû ' î we hav; quoted trom theFaneuil H til address. "N tr will capital and lubor go theie (to the South) from the free S .»tes under present auspices," i say the authors of the address, while none h*v.i been more effieient than : ih 'y and their co laborers in bringing : abort the ondition to which they i Jalluio. There is nothing n •», or in j the future, to make the South, in any ' rspeot, inau-picious to capital and la-1 bir but the pernicious contrivances o; thés« agitators and iutenoeddleis —> n. o.
