Fraser, we reproduce the following in teresting history from Latham, Alex anders ft Co’s “Cotton Movement” issued recently; 1621. The cotton plant had been found growing in a wild state by the first settlers of the south western portion of our country, but the year 1621 is generally re garded as the first year of cotton culture in the United States. Seed, probably from the Levant or the East Indies, was planted as an experiment, and its plentiful com ing up was at that early day a sub ject of interest in America and England. Its cultivation was for a long time limited to small patches for domestic use. Among a list of article8|growing or to be had in the Virginia Colony in 1621 cot ton wool is mentioned; value, 8d per pound, flax 3d. But cotton-planting in Virginia never reached large proportions. Tobacco-growing was found to be more profitable. Labor was scarce and dear, so that the cost of hand cleaning, or separating the fibre from the seed by hand, before a gin was invented, exceeded the market value of the cotton so cleaned. From Virginia the cul ture extended northward to Mary land, Delaware, Pensylvauia, and even New Jersey, down to the time of the Bevolutionary War. l (66. uotton seed was Drought into Carolina by Peter Purry, who settled a colony of Swiss near Purrysburg; but, from previous mention made, it is evident that some kind of cotton preceded his planting. 1734. About this time cotton was planted in Georgia from seed sent to the trustees from England. Iu a deposition taken in London in 1739 for the use of the trustees of the Georgia grant it is stated “that the climate of Georgia is very healthy, and the climate and soil very fit for raising silk, wine and cotton, all of which produces may be raised by white persons without the aid of negroes.” 1741. A “sample of Georgia cotton was taken to England. 1742 In Louisiana cotton cul ture must have already become quite extensive, for we find that in this year a planter of that State, Mr. Dubreuil, invented a machine for separating the seed from the fibre; probably only au adjustment of rollers. It greatly stimulated planting iu that colony. 1747. Duriug this year several bags of Carolina cottou were ex ported from Charleston. 1753. We find the first cotton premium recorded. A liberal citi zen of Delaware offers “£4 for the most and best cotton off an acre.” 1770. Shipments to Liverpool, ten bales from Charlston, three bales from New York, four bags from Virginia and three barrels full from North Carolina. About this year Southern planters began turning their attention to the cul tivation of cotton as a staple crop. 1775. The first manufactory for cotton, flax and wool was established in Philadelphia. Throughout the Revolution this factory was supplied with native cotton at two shillings per pound. The state of the Colonies during that period was very similar to that of the South during our late war; that they were almost entire ly dependent on foreign inanufac turies was shown by the destitu tion of the people and the armies. The ragged condition of the American soldiers aud officers is well known. Even when Wash ington’s army was partially cloth ed, it was in English cloth brought to America by way of Holland. 1784. About fourteen bales of American cotton were shipped to England, of which eight bales were seized in Liverpool as im properly entered, on the ground that so much cotton could not have been produced in the United States, and this was more than 150 yeare after the first importa tion into England of cotton-grown in this country. 1787. The first regular cotton factory in the United States was built in this year at Beverly, Mass, “for carding, roving and spinniug cotton by machinery.” The leg islature made a grant of £5000 to assist the new enterprise. In 1789 Gen. Washington visited this fac tory. 1793. The average value of cotton exported this year was 26 cents per pound; the crop of the . United States was about four j thousand fiye hundred of our pres ent sized bales, of which three* .. fourths were grown in loutl Carolina and one-fourth in Georgia. About one-tenth of the crop was exported. 1793, This is a memorable year in the cotton trade, made so by Eli Whitney’s invention of the saw-gin. He was then living in Georgia, had no mechanical as sistance and only the rudest tools. He even had to make his own wire by hand. Before this, the old fashioned roller gins were the best machines for cleaning cotton ; previous to them, the bowstring had been used for beating up and cleaning, while earlier still the only method of detaching the fibre from the seed was by the tedious process of picking with the fing ers, that being the evening task of many members of a planter’s household in the olden time. Whitney’s gin was patented in 1794. The word gin is an abbre viation of engine. 1795. The second cotton mill in the United States erected in Rhode Island. Georgia cotton of good quality offered New York at one shilling six pence per pound. 1812. War with England. The price of cotton goods such as had nunni/vimlif Un/tn i mnnwirt/l f f A*vi England at from seventeen to twenty cents per yard adyanced to seventy-five cents by the case. 1813. Price of cotton in this country 12 cents, in England lGd to 56d. Considerable cotton was exported during the war in neu tral vessels to the continent, whence doubtless much of it found ts way to England. 1815. The rise in the price of goods during the war had given great impetus to the erection of mills. In this year the importa tion of goods from England re commended, prices of course de clined, and many mills that had been built at extravagant rates be came almost worthless. 1825. After the opeuiug of this year prices of cotton advanced from 15 to 25 cents in this coun try, and from 8d to lHd in Liver pool, on a prospective short sup ply; consumption was checked. There was no killing frost in the cottou Sates, and some plants “rattooned” .(sprouted from old roots) the next spring.. A (food Definition. The following is the answer which one of the teachers gave tc a question asked him at the recent examinations held in this city this fall. The question was: “How were the Southern States governed after the fall of the Confederacy and before they were re-admitted into the Union!” The applicant rememberiug this period well, be ing old enough to know what this meant. In reply to it he wrote: “Excuse me, gentlemen. ] remember these times. The gov. eminent was a hybrid, a mongrel cross, sired by carpetbaggers and scalawags, bom of ignorant anc free niggers and was a heteroge nous conglomeration of death hell and damnation.” This old fellow evidently knew what, he was talking about, •Columbus Dispatch.
