Iu another column of oaur present issue will be fopd' a letter which we copy from the N. O. Times in relation to the late im portation of Chinese laborers to this State. About187 of these yellow laborers from China arrived at New Orleans, the first ves sel that has ever brought such a eargo to that city, from tlh. Flowery Kingdom. These are intended for some planters in Ar kansas, but another vessel is expected in a week or two with a like number for the La fourche, in this State. To land these Chinamen in New Orleans it has cost in cash paid out, about $100 a head. Dednetiag the sick and those who have died, or will soon die, probably 150 laborers will be ready for field service when We have so often and so thoroughly ex pressed our views in regard to Chinese labor through our columns that it is useless for us to repeat them here.: But so far we have no cause to change any of our views in regard to the character of this people, or the policy of cultivating the eklds of Louisiana with such laborers. But ye will keep posted in regard to these immigrant field hands of the pigtail persua sion, and will aim to make candid statements relative to the success or failure attending their introduction into this State. THE RAINS. Last Tup day evening it rained in New Orleans till it filled all the gutters, and wash ed the city pretty clean. Cistein water was an object before this hard rain. The eoot try was refreshed as far up as the lorer part of St. Mary; but, from the Bay to In diano-Bend the fall of rain was light. Above Jeannerettatbokll of rain was copious. In the parish of St. Martin empty tubs, barrels, and cisterns sitting out in the open air with out spouts leading to them, caught more than twelvencehes of water, and the Bayou Teche above rose over ive feet in a few hours. But the dry season is evidently passing away, and we will soon have refreshing rains all over the coaatry. THE CCOPS. The crops ham not suffered materially from the dry weather. The stands of cane, corn, and stern are generally good. The erop are lean and generally well worked. The dry weather in May has given a good epportmeity to put the cultivated fields is Se order for the rainy season.

Thompson came to New Iberia from New Orleans last Thursday to exam ine the Bayso Vermilion, and note the ob struetions to navigation in that bayou, under iseauuioes from the State authorities. Tbe~m eseral thinks these bayous, the Teobl a d Vemrirlon, stand in-great need of eleaning ba, and that the work will be done in deeseason. He has put down in his note book menrately oeery sag, log, and impedi ment, Ineluding every tree orerhanging the Bayou, *tomihe Juention to St. Martinville, a distam f thirty miles.

There ge several reasrns for tl.s delay. T'he people are everywhere busy, and are nut incli:wd to leave home and their business even to save the State from r.uin. They do lint wish to get up any political ex citemnent that may dcer.mge or disorganize the labor of the country.

Ar LAST.-At last we have put our 3Map and Circular to press in the Banner Office. We were not compelled to send to New York or Cincinnati to have this job done. Though not a flue job; it is substantial, and we think a good one. The electrotyping and stereotyping were done in New Orleans, the printing of the Map and Circular is be ing done in this office. We think we have reason to be proud of this home efifrt at informing the world of the real character of Attakapylt and St. Lan dry, the garden spot of the State and of the Continent. We mapped this whole matter out in our mind more than a year ago, and we have labored incessantly to give our con ceptiins a lodalhabitation and a name. Tihe public now have it in the shape of our Circular aqd Map. -We feel confident that this section of Louisiana is no better and inure truthfully advertibed than any other portion of the South. We expect the six pdrisles which we have labored so hard to present to the world in their true colors to purchase many thou sands of our Maps and "Circulars for gratui tous circulation. It is the only way in whi mh they can reach the inquiries for infor mation in relation to this country. We have put these Circulars and Maps at low figures, to give them an extensive circula tion at a small expense to the parishes. We, xpect 30.000 copies of this Circular to be put in circulation in the next three months, and we believe they will be read by 150.000 people in this State, in the S.uth, the West, the North, and in Europe. Though we get no State aid for this en terprise, it being an individual enterprise of ml n hol imill an mon ood. Louisiana generally. t.LETTER FROMi SUSSEX. After a protracted drputh, less remarka SWle, owever,for its length than its intensity, owing to the prevalence of cold nights and parching north winds, the vapors which have been floating over our headi for some days past were rapidly conclude.!, and poured upon the thrifty earth nearly all day yesterday. There are times when the clerk of the weather would find it difficult to satisfy the wishes of all ~ien dealing out the pluvial treasures stored for our use in endless pro fusion in the impalpable Southern breezes as they come laden with health and balmy coalness overJhe "raste of waters," to the east and rodLh of us. but few, indeed, were they, who, either in town or country in this section, did not feel gratified for the copious showers of yesterday. The prairie was a sheet of water as far as the human eye could reach, the fields thor oughly saturated, and in many instances al most subllerged we are told, while empty cisterns everywhere rejoiced in a supera bundance of one of the prime necessaries mand chief luxuries of life. The amount of water that fef in somewhat less than twelve heors must have been very great and cer tainly very unesual at this season of the year. as is evidenced by the extraordinary rie in the bayou, and that, too, after so severe a drought. Despite the vast absorption of the soil, the volume that found its way into the Teche, has given it the turbid hue and rapid eurreat of an outlet of the "Father of Waters,''" when sweeping majestically on; ward to the ocean. So fearful were some of oar planters, -. L- ; of in the day to express the wish for at least two days rain. They scarcely appreciated the energy and bounteous nature of Plorius, as manifested in his visits to semi tropical latitudes, and especially when his devoirs are paid at the approach of and (du ring the summer solstice. Long before the first day's rain was over, the inexperienced began to smell, if not a full grown rat, at least a very respectable sed emouae, and expressed themselves per estlty oentented ad willing, nay, anxious, to make two installments and take the moi ety a week or ten days hence. This is probably the heaviest rain that has falen during the month of May, for a period of twenty years or m re in Louisiana, and was far more than was needed. Where the land is well drfaned, no injury could re sult from it if the grass can he kept under, but, asfewplantations can now boast of good ditches there is a possibility of some injury to the ereop hich may be still Plr ther increased should the rains oenla e daring this month. Th. rops are i fell moeh behia4, but as 1) mtand of eawe ii fair, . ith favorable weather drinlg the montSs of Jane and J dy. there is a.pple timeyet for both the corn and cane to swell out into proportions calculated to cheer the heart of the most do spoading, andl give t'ie thrifty farmer his hands full during the barvs-ting season. Much depends on having comparatively dry weather daring the next six meeks, and pre'ent appe;araces are int indoeative of continued wet wea:ther. A gentleman living niir thi' place, and who has a smuall farm nw eliine worked on hares by an industriiou- m:in hailing from the " Key Stone State," thld me to-day, that he had some difficulty in convincing the ex perienced husbandman from the most thrifty and best cultivated portion of the United+ States, that hie must adapt his system .of phl ughing n:ud pripari:ug la:l t., tite usages of practiced farmers herr, wh, c..rtai:'ly did not adopt it from caprice, or at whimsical tendency to eccontricity, but were diiven to it by a regard fir thei,. intcrets. This man insisted that ,iur metlhod of trench ploughini; crl.tted an artificial drought ruinous to the plant which could easily be avoided by fallowing thle land before planting, amid ploughing with the aim of leaving the ridges :L flit, and the furrows as shallow as pssible. iI'. howvever, was induccd, much against his inclination, and juldgm:ent, to conuform to tile prevailipg cus tomn, bit could by no means con-ent to open his drainis, as he feard the water would run off before the soil be cam, suffici#ntly satu rated. 'i*Rns h- te song .alto gether a different. tune, as he beheld a re spectable little lake. where, twenty-four hours before, naught wa: visible but boul dersof obdurate earth, that, with an Egyp tian climate, would have ainsworol to per petuate in a monument or pyramid, the dis covery of a secret by him, in the simple manner of preparing the s;il to meet the vicissitudes of the seasons, and exigencies of the plants to be grown, whicih has failed to penetrate the obtuse understandings of several generations of planters mand farmers. He has cut an eye tooth already, and pos sibly, before the seap:so is over, hlie may cut another. He will find, if hIi remains there long enough to become familiarized with our cli mate and soil that injurious droughts are the result of excessive rains upon lauds inper fectly drained. Tile seeming tiaradox may be reconciled by a few experiments iin as small at compas- as a garden plot. While a ridge of two or three feet wide, will remain moist on both sides by exudation and absorption, and retain it through months of dry weather,'nd with all, sscape the lash ing and solidifying effects of beating rains, the flat surface will rapidly dry and run to gether in a compact mass when subjected to copious showers. It matters little how namnerous and deep ouraditches and dilins may be, so far as treieh ploughiug our Attakapas lands is concerned, since the sub-strata of tenacious clay underlying them at no great depth, will forever preclude the possibility of simple fallowing to prepare them for planting. The rolling lands of Lafayette, Vermil ice and St. Landry will not admit of such a method, and our level prairies and wood lands would not. under treatment of that kind, return the seed used in planting. With good ridges, however, and their ac companiments, deep furrows to precipitate 4tFesio inabauntance, there is no better soil in the world, either to yield, or withstand protracted droughts. This fact will be at tested by every good farmer in Attakapas. FOUJE hAN 0' TIIE BANNER OFFICE. This week our foreman, Mr. Will L. Smyli., closes his connection with this office. He will go to take charge of an office in Beau mont, Texas. We regret to part with him, but be is ambitious to be more than a fore man, and it would be ungenerous for us to insist that he should sacrifice his inetrests and a laudable ambition to promote our in dividual welfare. Mr. Smylie has been foremnan in the BAN NER office for fif.eeu months. He has had sole charge of the mechanical department of the paper, and has greatly improvrod its appearance. The editor of this paper is not a printer, and he.wishes it distinctly under stood that the neat appearance and "make up" of the BANNeRais to be credited to the good taste, judgment and skill of Mr. Wil L. Smylie alone. Mr. Smylie has been faithful to the inter ests of this office, and will be faithful to the interests of any office he may control. Sober, industrious, prudent, polite, honest and kind-hearted, he ought to make friends wherever he goes. He has our best wishes, and the best wishes of aumerceus friends, whose friendship and oonfidence he has as cured while residing in this town, acting as foreman of this office. Naw OrIcas or IEo, .ouvD CITY M. L. IN. Co.-While in New Orleans last week we visited the new office of the M. C. M. L. I. Company' on Carondelet street. It is tted up in a style corresponding to its sao cess and rapidly growing importance. It is convenient in all its details, central, and jhgly attractive in appearance. It is now e of the strong compaees of the natioan cient agent for Louis:anna, has the wholie F chinery of the office in clock-work order, and is constantiy adding largely to the life poli cies issued by the company. No better proof of the caution of the State agent canl be effered than that only one or two deaths have occurred in this State Is the last year of .all the multitude issued in this country up to the present time. HRAMI MAculiNx.-Our enterprising con frere, E. Lefrane, Esq.. of the Reanaissanoe Louisiannaise, has lately patented a machine for cleaning and preparing for market the ramie fibre. It is a matter of vast Impor tance to this State to have a machine which may put the ramie crop in a saleable oeadi tion, and from the appearanee n- Mr. La frano's machine i seemt that he has the ar ticle so much needed. If it answers the purpose as it now promises to o it will add millions to the income ef the ealtivator of our soil, and to the revenues ifjhe State.

Death of Judge Drewr. SThe New Orleans Bulletin of a late date hnsthe Nitlowing: Leuidesna has bpst one of her brightest and mostgifted sues in the death of Judge. Harmo.A$. Drew, of Claiborne Pari-h, who died in this oity yesterdayamorning. Judge Drew was a native of the parish in which he had his late residence. ('om mencing the l.racticy of I :w in Carroll parish, he rose rapidly to distinlon at the bar in that part of the State, and as District At torney, by his diligence, vigor aind cli quence, imparted a luster and a prestige to the odiot such al@ seldom attend the per fprmance of its functions. Subsequently. having returned to C'laiborne parish, he was elected District Judge in tihe lharge [)tstrict iacludiag that parish, and served for seve ral terms in that capacity, with an ability at once distinguished and unquestioned. As a member of the Louisiana Legislature of 1S64., the first orgoaized after the war, he was conteut to represent his constitu euts rather by the discrimination of his votes audl mis personal influence than by frequent and lengthy harangues; and when General Sheridan suppressed that body. ho did not aspire to a seat in another Legislature under a system of indirect mil iCary authority. Judge Di;ew was a younger brother of Thomas Drew, for a number of years Gov ernor of Arkansas, end the head of the Democratic party in that State when it boasted such champions and representives as Yell and Sevier; and another brother, Richard Drew, was a State Senator, equally brilliant, able and popular, and seemed plainly destined for the highest political and official position in the, State, when he was taken off by a suddelln and untimely death. But these proefessional, political and fam ily reminiscenses must fall cold upon the ears of those who knew the deceased as a social companion of unsurpassed geniality. apd of exquisite wit an.d humor, and as a frrend. brother, husband. father-devoted, fond, fervid in a remarkable degree in all these relations. With those who knew him thus, '-to know him was to love him, to name him was to praise." Ilis hoom was the abode otf every honor..bl seuti ment. His heart overflowed with all gene rous enruolions. L..s than two mouths ago, Judge IY-ew married Miss Maria Caffery, daughter of Judge Catfrey, who lived and died in this parish many years ago. Trhe bereaved widow has b en called upon to meet one of those severe alnd sudden reverses which so often follow days of rejoicing. She has the sympathies of her neighbors and friends, in this sudden affliction in which her brightest hopes have withered, and dis: ppointmenc.h hos overshadowed her like a cloud. Tuircri. TO Du. I'AL.ER.--'l'he Louis ville Courier Journal, in an article upon the Southern Presbyterian Assembly, lately In session at L,uisville, mentions the Rev. Dr. Palmer as one of the more distinguished members, and pays him the following tribute: It would, perhaps. be invidious to select from a body.so nniformly .able, those en titled to the distinction of being its great men. Bey~nd doubt, in an ecclesiastical court, where there was comparatively so little speech making, many of the ablest men were not heard at all in public, but gave the advantage of their abilities to the body in the perfected papers from the con mittee rooms. Su far as the public had op portunity to judge, howev'er, from sermons in the various pulpits, and speeches in the Asselmbly, Dr. Palmer, of New Orleans, stood pre-eminent, both as a preacher, and an ecclesiastie. His brethren evidently had unbounded confidence itn his wisdom, as well as unbounded ad!niration for his elo quence in argument. And the public esti mation of him as:a preacher rendered it im is the opinion of those well qualified tý pro nounce an opinion, that, take him all in all, Dr, Palmer is the best preacher in the coun try. It is claimed that he can hold his hearers with all the power of enchaintment which Beecher wields, and yet, all the while, teach them the profoundest jrutfif:f his theology, while Bleecher amuses with mere sensational sermons for the times, with clap trap, and often low buffoonery. CROP AND POLITICAL PROSPECTS OF HtUE COuNTRY.-Having spent the last thirty days in travelling extoesively over the par iehes of Avoyalles and St. Landry, and knowing that many of our teasers would like to know the prospect in the country, I will give them the results of my observation. Tbe crops were never more promising. For several weeks past rain has been much needed, but now ah aprehensions of a droutb have beeen dispelled by the copious rains of the past two days. Peace and harmony prevail throughout this distaict, and all, both black and white, are devoting their entire attention to the crops. The reoent rain almost inbures a large crop of sugar and corn, and, barring the danger of the worm, an unusually large crop of co'ton will be raised. I have beard the "People's Party" move ment freely discussed, and I find that while :t is epposed by a fw of the old leaders of the "great unwashed," it is beyond all ques tion overwhelmingly approved by the masses. They want something available, and they believe that the new party can be made so. Bat the question is asked on all sides, "wily is the organization of the movement in the country pauishea so slow ?" "Why are not the parish committees appointed, so that organization may be efFecterl at once ?" The emissaries of the midnight leagues are already at work, and it behooves us to be active and to lose no lime in informing the colored portion of our population of the principles and purposes of the new party. If we are laggard in this matter the jluu derers will have again fastened their grasp upon that class. as they have done in the past.-Cor. N. O. Times, Washington. La.
