A Much Talked of Question Satisfac

l*al<l tho Author of Tho Answor
Tho News and Courier of tho Kith
contained an exceedingly clever article
by Miss Porrin Farrow In answer to
tho question recently asked by Super
intendent of Eduoation Mayfiold,
"What was tho real cause of tho Re
bellion in 1861?" It will bo recalled
that the question was tjiven recently
In an examination of applicants for
tochers certificates and that tho use
of the word "rebellion" brought about
a hot discussion in which almost every
paper in the State had a word. Lack
of space forbids our quoting Miss Far

high compliment which the News
and Courier pays its author editorially.
We clip however the closing para

what she teaches. It is a pity there
are not more such teachers in our pub

TO TUE COTTON GROWERS OF
At bite Cotton Growers'Convention
held at Laurens O. IL, on Salesday in
December last, a convention of cotton
growers was called to meet at Laurens
0. H. on Salesday in January, 1808. We
respectfully invite the presence of
bankers, merchants, professional men
of all classes, and all those directly or
indirectly interested in cotton grow
ing, to meet with us. Let US rise to the
necessity Of the occasion and tnke some
definite action. I shall not waste space
by indulging in arguments of the ne
cessity of this action. Five-cents cot
and its natural elTeet Is its own most
potent pleader in this cause. The im
portance of the situation addresses it
self to our common country. There is
no one interested in the material pros
perity of our country who will not
have to hear his share of this burden .
We appeal to all to join us in a patri
otic effort to crush out the ills that are
now threatening our ruin. The threat
of live cents cotton a few years ago
shocked us with anticipation of im
pending ruin; its realization has al
most Convinced us that we are helpless;
hut 'tis often true that dire necessity
compels us to act tor self preservation,
and under the present conditions we
are absolutely slaves. The price is set
on our cotton at just such a llgure as
to only leave us a hare living. The on
ly reason we are not entirely crushed
out is simply because our cotton is a
necessity, and thus a scanty living 's
left that we may continue a product at
the prices dictated to us. We are only
laborers, without a voice in the prun
paid us for our lnhor. A crop of seven
million bales for 18US would he more
valuable to the South than ten million
bales in 1N07. If our usual cotton
acreage could be reduced 25 per cent,
and this reduction planted in grain,
bay and peas, our farmers would pros
per, and with this prosperity would
come new life. The cotton crop of 'Oh
is already being traded away by the
sharks that inhabit Wall street, at
prices ruinous and begetting starva
tion. Shall the speculators relinquish
their iui relent leg grasp upon the labor
of the producers, or will the farmers
make a total surrender of their man
hood and decide to become t heir hewer S
of wooil and drawers of water for all
