rks, The great depreciation in the value of lands
in the cotton growing States, has been, next
the to the loes of the value of their property in
slaves, probably the -greatest loss which has
Sbeen sustained from the result of the war.'The
lied enhancement of the value of land is, therefore,
one of the most important questions for the
the consideration of the people of the Southern
ir- States. If we compare the market value of our
h lands with that ot other States of the Union,
and eves with other Southern States, we will
nee find that they are at the bottom of the price
ave list. While large tracts of the very best lands
one in the exclusively cotton S ttes go begging at
at $5 per acre, the sterile, rocky lands of Msa-s
aet. ohusetts readily command from $50 to $200 per
ns acre. The same is the case with the lands
hiie throughout the Northern and Western States
ish In Mtisouri, Kentucky, Virginia and Maryland,
although we tied their lands somewhat depre
I in ciated, it is not more than in proportion to the
arl loss of laLor caused by the changed condition
Ign of the colored population. In any of these
Is States good land sells readily for $50 per acre.
,rd- As we ooume fIrther South the value of land
as steadily decreases, these of Tennessee and the
his Northern parts of Mississippi, Alabama and
an Georgia beaug nmore valuable than those of the
exclusrveiy cotton portions of the South. Oar
tet lands in this section of the Union are intrinsi
be cally as good as those of any part of the Union,
24 or even as those of England, Holland, or Bel
to gimo, where the annual rental of an acre is
from fifty to one hLndrtd dollars. Id the South I
ho labor is cheaper b5 o:e huonureoi per cent. than
en it is io the North. It costs certainly no more
Id to Lind it; our products are as valuable, they
ot can be tranasported to market as cheaply, and
s. crit:cal examination will show us that our a
y. great bug-bear, taxation, is not now much above I
d. that ct toe Northern States and very much
less than it is in the most prosperous European
e- countries. The question to be solved is why n
e are cotton lands so much less valuable than a
'- those devoted to the production of other crops.
° An able writer in an exchange gives the fol- o
a lowing as asolution of this mystery. d
`e He says "we shall find the map of usnee to us
ty in answering this question. If we take the
map of the United States, and put our fingers
upon the states or parts of states in which a
lands sell at the highest prices, we shall find as
that in those states or parts of states the 1
e greatest attention is paid to the cultivation of
the grasses and forage plants. If we open the
map of Earope we shall find that the same rule hi
holds good. The cheapest lands of Europe are to
those of Spain, whberelttleattention is paid to
grasses. The value of land rises exactly in
proportion to the attention which is given
to them, in England and Holland reaching
sometimes for farming purposes $1000 per acre.
Holland is almost a continuous meadow. This
land value culminates in Lombardy, where
s irrigated meadow lands rent for $50 to $100
per acre. Without exception, in Europe and
America, where a large portion of land is in ai
grass or forage crops, the prise of land is high,
reaching the figures mentioned above, On the
other hand, wathout exception, wherever the
grasses do not receive this attention landed a
estates are comparatively of low value." ri
If this theory is correct, how easy it would ye
be for us in this portion of Mississippi to en
hance the value of our landed estates by the
simple process of putting our waste lands to hii
use as grain or grass producing farms. Our
climate is finely adapted for the grasses and l
can be made to produce grain crops equal to
those of many other portions of the Union, Co
where then are the staple crops. With grass by
and grain for our crops we would be rid of Fri
that great peat of the South, the thieves and ms
depredators who have for years made farm
inog unprofitable. The pioneers in a new de- e:
parture of this kind in South Mississippi Ci'
would, we think, be public benefactors, be- ci
aides making for themselves far more money
and comfort than they have found in their ex
elusive cotton oulture. mn

BReferring to the troubles In the coal regione of
of Prnoesylvar;ia, the Philadelphia Standard b
gives the following as some of the canes yt
which lead to the organizalion of the Mollie Of
Mag ires: o
For a seriOs of years capitalists, or adventu. 8q
rers who cou.d obtain credit, and thus com- Iai
mand the capital of others, controlled at will lai
the labor that was employed in mining coal. tb
They were the masters of the coal miners and wl
laborers, fixing such wages as they chose to we
allow, and paying them in such manner as bei
they preferred. The wsge were not a fair be
compensation for the work one, and unfair lie
as they were, even on their face, they were I
not what they were pretended to be. They Sat
were not paid in money, as a general rule, but cal
in "ordere." and these "orders" compelled the tar
miners to boy their provisions, their clothes, wh
their furniture, their tools, their powder, me
their oil, their tobacco--everything, in fact, bot
from "a cradle, or a coffin, to a postage stamp," of
at the stcre which the owner or operator of nl
the mines owned or in which he was interest
ed. If a miner, by some extraordinary circum- the
stance, managed to have a balance coming to dot
him out of these "orders" after bultng wast wit
he had to bay in order to live and work, he roe
could only torn that balance into money by
selling his order at a large discount. The ter,
owners and operatorsof the nloee made money join
rapidly; the men who worked for them re- low
maoned as poor at the end of years, as when Chb
they commenced their toill. They lived in T
ebantiep, fared hard and worked hard, and at fart
te end of the year generally bad their work leg
tor their pales, sad sothble more. i
