Our Cotton Exchango claims that it
wishes to build up a largo cotton trado
In this city for the mutual beuefit of tho
city and tho producers of cotton; the
planters want a market for their cotion
where tho charges for tho salo of it
will bo as light as they can possibly be
made ; hero is Iho basis upon which both
cin act. Let tho planters como iu largo
numbers and talk over tho matter, and
then the members of the Exchango
will ba presented an opportunity of
discussing all things of interest touch
ing this great trade. We have read the
ai ticks of both sidos with great inter
cat, and wo arc sitisficd that all differ
cimcs 'Mil be arranged when tbo parties
arc UiouKht faco lo ftcc, as would be
the case if tho planters met in Con veil
Hon here. It is plainly to tho interest
of the planter and of tho city of Vlcks
burg to have the charges on cotton
as lair and as low as I hey
can bo made. It is to the
intercut of iho city, lor the more
reasonable tho charges aro tho more
cotton she will sell and handle ; to the
planter, because bo saves money by it
Our Cotton Exchango proposes to
build up tho cotton business on this
principle, but one of tbo most iutelli
gent planters lu the county takes issue
wilh tho cily on tho twcnty-fivo cents
a bslo charge for storage on tho
sale of cotton. The Exchango replica
through its Secretary, by claiming
that tho Exchango is not rcsponsiblii
for tho charge, inasmuch as it Is mado
by tho Compress Company. This ar
gumeut is plausible, but It will uot sal
Isly the producers, for it is hardly
sound. Tbo responsibility for 0111
menial customs cannot thus bo shifted
from Iho proper shoulder?. It is H ue,
the Compress Company makes the
charge on all cotton delivered to it of
25 cents a balo for storage, aud for thi
chargo it will store tbo cottou a whole
month, or if it remains only one
day. tho chareo is the same. The
planter bring their cottou lo Vicks
burg to sell, not to store ; if they soil It
thtir responsibility, it teems to u,
should cease; if (boy store it, ihoy
should pay tho storage, and we must
ssv (hat tho Compress Company is not
to blame, for tho charge Is uot an un
reasonable one. To make this portion
plaluer, wo will present a cse that
might occur any day in tho week. Let
us supposo a planter noils a buyer 100
bales and tho buyer ships it the
samo day, would It be just tochnrgetho
planter 25 for storage? Certainly not.
Yet this is the position auiiicd by the
buyers, li a bucr purchases cotton
and wants 10 novo I', he ought lo pay
tho otoraire: if ho wants to 'hip it
without Fttmge, that is his bu-iue?'
The Cotton Exchsngo attempts tn
avoid tho question by siying (tint 1;
docs nut msko tin) charge, and 1l.1t it
i:i niailo by the Compress Company.
The Cotton Etchango was started to

Johnson refused to comply with this

He had no hotitalinu in avowing his
reason for this. Thero hail beeu tu

whispers of alliances pending some

alliances relied upon to transfer the
malority from one sldo to the other
aide of the Senate. 1I3 felt it his
right 13 ascertain, by tho earliest
method, who were the allies,

revelation of tbe coalition, and show
how it was tbat iho control of the Sen
