Cheep #tFSrapon o. Vw ýt sound to manyParsl 1ike f paradox d to say that profits are generally Increased by lesseni'E prices. The expeience :f 41 aal sucesssfll business men and commutt1, however, establishes the correctness of the role. Of oarse, in buying or ieMing, the price of sale must leave a margin of profit our on the cost, but the sngaller that margin of a the- greater is, generally, the profit of the is I business. not This principle is peculiarly applicable in the transportation. Cheapness in its rates not of a only sets in motion the existing resources cone of its business, but develops and cates the new fields. The economy. which it enables whi the public to practice awakens such an ac. uni tivity that while the whole community tot gains in time and money, the enterprise sho which introduced the reform is richly, re- nor warded in a harvest of receipts. Where far one man can-economise by riding half a in mile at a cost of twenty-five cents, nine mu other persons would lose more in money the by riding than they wold save in time ; of therefore they walk. But all the ten- per- 1 sons would perhaps save in time and fatigue pop more than five cents by riding; there- aPI fore, If the price is five cents, they all ride. the The result is that the vehicle .makes fifty aer cents instead of twenty-five, for the same it i outlay, and at the same tine thie public has get economised and is better off mi .The result is similar in transportation for old purposes of pleasure. Where not more gl than ten persons would make the Sunday "s excursion on make Pontchartrain if the fare were threeidollars apiece, flem twoto three as hundred indulge inhat~pleasure now that anc it costs them oqly one dollar. They are able to pay that price and feel that they receive del its value in amusement and restoration of bin strength. Thus the boats make three hun e dred dollars instead of thirty, by a cheapen ing of rates which may not be altogether by a voluntary. Why should not-a wise spirit pr a of enterprise suggest what competition p extortst This principle is well understood in our Northern States and efficiently applied. Railroads run accommodation trains into a solitude where they find that the elements w'i of population abound. Splendid cars per sist for months in making the trip without ea passenger, but before many more months go n they are crowded twice a day. A liberal the r- foresight has induced population, developed w( '- business, and created wealth. In our own city we have an illustration of this principle in the street cars. Proba- e d bly no other similar transportation ischeapen foe or more profitable.- It comes down to the: wants and means of the masses, and is, of ,g therefore, a popular institution instead of an Nc a aristocratic luxury. Business frequently se' 1e obtains more importance from its universal fe' ie character than from its costliness, as the is Fe manufacture of pins is a much greater ] business than that of telescopes. re in Might not this principle be tried to ad- hi in vantage inaeur other modes of public con- ac is veyance in this city. Recently, we saw that pl or a movement was being made at the North su lr toward inaugurating the European tariff of m ad charges for cabs, whereby, if we remember ax i aright, the cost of their use would be about hi one-fifth of what it is now, but their em- m of ployment would probably be increased at m ad least ten fold. At twenty cents a ride in- e' sn. stead of one dollar, their use would proba le- bly be increased a hundred fold." However, c( Ais this is a private occupation, and the public hi have no right to complain if they do not ap- n, in prove the policy regulating its charges. 8 ic- Railroads, though, are, to a certain extent, al his public institutions, and their control subject si he to public comment. The principal route a ve terminating in New Orleans, the Jackson I; tor railroad, has not seen fit to favor the liberal n ?ts policy which has worked so satisfactorily f 1 a elsewhere. It has not, apparently; had in r the view the development of its tributary re- J 1 ign ions and resources, but rather the profit s and froml taxing as heavily as possible the travel ace and commerce which could not escape it ier, exactions. We have recently heard unfa- i -ost vorable comparisons made between its 4 will management in this respect, and that of the 1 en Mobile roads. Much greater facilities and and inducements are said to be offered by the I we latter. We are told of planters in Missie; sippi who haul thirty or forty miles to the n. river, rather than fifteen or twenty to the Sfor Jackson railroad, while tile freight trains of Iton. the latter come down without perhaps one irew fourtlh of a load. iglt 'he greact river trade is waking up to the rch advantages o'f cheap trlatlnslportationl, ira ama- mense barges, grain elevators,-tc. It will p"rt Ibe well when our railroad mnanagement ' shakes off the old Turkis piolicy of extract ing the last possible cent f-a,,to atl discour aged pullaltion-tlhe penttiy wise and pevee pound foolish policy. Not ,,nly will their rored reform on this point gi.ve to l. :a l .eallthiy ,.and prosperity heretofore. unllklaow . fiat it will a are encourage, by their succe-s.- tala. caaaai'aatial! of that vast net-work of Imail, rd- at w .itilh ow orleans wiould ha týhenaturakrntertp, and to which our level Southern cuaray, exmpt froni asnewr and ice, is55 peUU** l re n -dapped. c at Immlgration. . nc The importance of introducing among ti, our rural population more advanoed ideas Sof curiulture, and of certain manufactures, w is ba no means generally realised. It is no not generally known how antiqiated are ti the theories and how slovenly the practices N of most of our farmers. Their cultivation ti Sconsists of scratching instead of plowjig pl a the land. Draining is ignored p-manwing, e a which is the life of production, is ally 1 unknown; the.soll is ruthlessly left eposed d t to the blaing fire of a summersun, When it. I Sshould be sheltered by a heavy crop. Ig- L norance of the irst principles of sucaes in. n e farming causes a general eagerness to put t a in cultivation from five to ten times as a e much land as the most successful farmers of y the world appropriate to a similar amount I Sof labor. e The readiest way to convince our farming I e population of its errors is by the visible p application of superior methods. If,one of a , them should see a scientific farmer take two p v acres of his worn out land and produce from C e it five times as valuable a crop as he would I a get from twenty acres of the same land, he I might undergo a radical change in all his Il r old, cherished notions. Nothing short of I e sight would be apt to convince him that a t sugar-cane crop is worth twice as muches a c cotton crop, that cabbages are. worth i e as much as sugar-cane, with the same labor, n and strawberries twice as much as cabbages. e Theorizing will never satisfy him that five a dollars' worth of manure will produce sixty a bushels of corn on an acre that would other- i wise stop at fifteen bushels. 'C These things can be taught successfully a a by persons only who understand them i it practically. We need the infusion in our n population of a teaching element, and yet c that element is not encouraged to immi- I a grate. Our planters and farmers clamor for a L labor, not for instruction. They would .] like, too, to obtain skilled labor, but do not 4 strive to obtain intelligence and enterprise i with it. To get men with these qualities 1 t they must offer other inducements than h good wages. Such men wish to labor for themselves-not for others--and proprietors would do well.to encourage their settlement among .them merely for the sake of their example. on Such men complain, however, that they, a- can not get a foothold. One of them in n formed us, the other day, that he had been he induced to come South by the cordial tone o, f Southern papers in their invitations to m Northern immigration. He had been, for y several weeks, endeavoring to purchase a few acres of land eligibly situated on a nay he igable stream not very far from t1ieity. er His efforts had been unavailing, and he was returning, after having entirely abandoned d- his intentions. No one would sell a flew a- acres only, though willing to sell a whole tat place. This required more outlay than th suited the plans of our informant, who 'of merely wanted twenty acres for strawberries ter and fruit. He appeared to be a master of Ot his business, and his success would have m- made the fortune of any proprietor who at might have let him have the requisite land in- even without any price. )a- The success of such an experiment as he er, contemplated would have immensely en lic hanced the value of land throughout the ;P- neighborhood, besides giving an example of scientific culture, open to the imitation of at, all. The history of pine lands in New Jer ect sey, similar in their character to the poorest ute sections of our own State, shows conclusive son ly that this anticipation is not fanciful. The wral most valuable crops' of the United States, rily for an equal extent of territory, if we are l in not misinformed, are now produced in New re- Jersey, on lands formerly ranked as sterile, ofit sandy, pine-barren. vel In some States great strides in improve s its- ents have been produced by public-spir ofa- ited offers of premiums for success in differ its ent departments. More than one hundred the bushels of corn to the acre was raised in and Kentucky, many years ago, under the sti the mnulus of a premiam to be given at a fair. sis- Each person that strives for such a reward is the more than repaid for his outlay by his suao the cess,even though surpasse. by some one is of else, and the spirit of improvement becomes one general. If our State Legislature or State Iair would offer five hundred dollars pre tie itium for the best agricultural result in sonIC il- twenty different c'ases, it would be ten thou will sand dollars well ,estowed. The offering ol nent such a jwardl for the best acre of sugar rt- canle, of ramie, of the castor-bean, of rice, our- of-eish iotratoes, of sweet Ipotatoes, of corn and of strawberry, etc., woluld produce a spiril Lheir of illnquiry, co'titlt~dele, acnil elltrplris htly very gt-neral in its intl.cicte. highly profit wiltl ade in its rs.tults, a, tlto wle ext.eilJt, ef6 tion f.elitin tite 'refew',it lthtt would e wroughil ,.il.h by iiitlei igetit intimi~igrlt ionl. r, The Month qMary dlosed with ceremo- Has ; ales of gmat4e( and Intrest A allour bi] chaures .Th g not peronaBy. present W at more than two of them that day,. we hae no doubt that t~u+ allifstatlons of devo- .. r ag tion tre 'ita.dlrele universal. as At St. Peter's Chure , the ceremonies e, were peculiarly interestng, from the preomi is neat part taken therein by, the children of C re the parish school.
