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
 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 —>

controversy involv.s a debate upon the
