The production of cotton in the Sooth, though not so large as was expected, has reachcd the amount of two million bales. This is as large a yield as that of 1850, and half as large as that of 1859. >ievcrtheless, the high price that this staple now commands brings up the money received for it to a figure equal to that of 1859. The culture of rice has been much reduced flincc the war. The increase of price per pound, however, has very nearly brought the value of the last crop up to that of 1859. These re.'^nlts are very gratifying, especially when we rcflect upon the conditions under which the late crops of tncse two staplcajrere planted raiid raibed. >Ve doubt if any people lahoriw^ under so many disadvantages as those of our section, could have done so much. The idea that is so prevalent that the Southern people lack energy, is not found to be borne out by facts. That there are lazy men here as elsewhere, is true enough, and the system of slavery in this case, as in many cthei'S, brought the vices of such to the surface; but we have yet to hear of any |i(tpulation that with such limited means and such disorganized Libor could have accomplished as much as the South has done. It is our firm belief that under the new order of things the cultivators of the soil in the South will make more money than they ever did. They will be forced to cultivate smaller quantities of land, and to make u few acres, by diligent atten tion. produce far more than their former im mense e.states. In addition to this they will not have to support the swarms of negro women and oliiklren. the feeding and clothing of which in slavcholding times cat out all their substance, making pi,‘iiiting a very unprofitable business ex cept upon the richest lands.—Xorfolk Journal.
