Mias men Kon is not without literary proclivities a certain order and is reported to have kept a journal in which Aro amassed Many occurrences which Aro to to a worked up in Tho now Romanco after m. Dumas own in comparable manner. 1 Cotton and Ospitale Quot it is a common saying that Cotton is Gold. In Ono sense it is True. Other products Are not Gold that is not Exchange Solo for Gold because they Are not available for Export. Northern writers sometimes boast the enor. Mous value Tho Hay crop. But double treble the yield Hay what could to done with it Tho excessive Quot Supply would Only have Tho effect reducing the Market is too Bulky to Bear exports to foreign countries for Tho Cost its transportation would be More than its value when it reached Market. This has Beon illustrated in our immediate Vicinity with one our own Staples. The time has been when the Price molasses in now Orleans would not repay the planter for the outlay for barrels and transportation nay hardly for the barrels alone. This applies As Well to Many other articles produce. Tho people the United states might be overwhelmed by an excess production and yet from similar Good Fortune among transatlantic. Nations they might have nothing that they could profitably Export nothing that had an exchangeable Worth. Cotton Tho contrary from its Little bulk and Universal value is Al ways unchangeable will always to equal to Gold to pay Lor foreign products which it May be Ouri Terest to import. In this View Cotton is Gold. Gold the product the mine in Gold Tho exchangeable value. But although Gold is Gold it requires capital to product it. Gold May be scooped up Froin the creeks. And picked up in tie diggings., but it requires capital even to scoop and pick up. Tho Miner must have his subsistence his clothing his shelter his tools All furnished before hand. Without the capital for food raiment roof and pick he cannot to brought to the diggings and. Set to work. Gold May exist in never such masses below the surface economically speak Ingilis not Gold until Tabor has Bro aught it Forth and made it available for exchanges. It a is not tie Gold Commerce. \ and so with Cotton. The Cotton states May have the capacity for the production four and a half million Bales. But what Avail is it to them unless like the miners they have the subsistence clothing tools and labor to Oring it Forth. Now All these require capital. Require Gold and without them the production Cotton is impossible. Let us see what is wanted to make available. 100 Bales Cotton even where the Plantation is already stocked Aud furnished with All the necessary implements husbandry mules Gin Etc to Mako 100 Bales will require Tho labor 25 hands. Tho pork com Etc for these 25 hands can hardly beset Down at less than $1500. The food for the cattle would amount to $800. The Wear and tear the machinery and Smiths a work for repairs would no doubt reach $300. Tho subsistence for the necessary servants the overseer planter would be about $800. The wages 25 labor ors at $15 per month for ten working months would be $3,750. New without including rent interest the value the Plantation and Stock Here a a. Total $7,150. The payment this amount the advancing this capital is a condition precedent to the malting the crop. If the planter has his land his implements and machinery and his labourers at hand All ready and in working condition still to cannot cultivate and Picur his crop without obtaining Tho additional capital necessary for Tho purpose. To formerly got it from his. Fact. His Factor contributed a part from his own capital and a part from Bank accommodations. For this there was ample Security. There Vyas the value Tho land and slaves the Reliance which could to placed ultimate production because the labor could be relied the responsibility the planter and finally the credit Tho Factor. All these were available to secure the banker and the capital was accordingly forthcoming. Now there is no slave value for a basis. The labor hired freedmen is notoriously unreliable. Without labor the Plantation is worthless. Therefore the Plantation furnishes no satisfactory Security. From All these causes ultimate production becomes doubtful. Hence the growing crop cannot be relied . With such general unreliability the planters responsibility vanishes. For the same cause the factors credit is diminished. It is not Manifest then that Cotton undeveloped is not Gold any More than Gold is Tho Gold Commerce until placed in the Market by the Aid capital. If 100 Baleto require an Advance $7,150 a crop 2,500,000 will need $118,150,000 the expenses transporting a the crop to Market Tho impolitic and restrictive excise Tho charges Factor age even Tho baling and ties As Well As the rent interest Tho original investment in Tho Plantation Aro All. Omitted in the above because they May be promptly collected from the net proceeds provided the crop is promptly sold its arrival. But wit Liou these nearly two Hundred millions Active capital Are required to enable the South to raise a two and a half million crop. Supposing that a Moiety this sum in furnished from the resources the Trade $90,000,000is still wanted. Hence it is that the South needs capital and that the manufacturers merchants and ship owners Tho North and great Britain Are directly interested in supplying Tho want. Without furnishing Tho capital they will the Orleans prices current. A do Dreyse has invented a now Rifle which thrown grenades explosive bullets and which is shortly to be Trees a Spandau a. It is a Breech loader the system the Needle gun Aud sends the missiles to a great distance and with extraordinary effect. Its indirect fire against fixed covered targets is affirmed to product most surprising results. The grenade when filled and ready for use is perfectly Safe in the pocket and so delicate in its construction that once it leaves Tho muzzle Tho Rifle it will burst in passing through even a Sheet paper. On exploding the fragments product most disastrous effects scattering Over a space five feet by three. The Rifle is Light and easily Gazette aug. 14th.
