CO- OPERA tTvE COTTON MANUFAQ- TURN. ' We present our readers with a very in teresting communication from our fellow- townsman, Mr. R. L. Bloomfield, Superin tendent ofthe Athens Manufacturing Co., prepared for the Georgian by special re quest This subject we propose to fully in vestigate, and hope the result may be to the mutual advantage of both farmer and manufacturer. Dr. E. D. Newton: Dear Sib :—Your calling my attention to an article in the Athens Daily Georgian was received, and in reply, I fear I cannot give you the encouraging facte you desire. Yams and fabrics are very dull at present, and to ship North would barely cover cost. To ship out of the United States has not been done to any extent since the war. The China and foreign trade is now just beginning to take our drills, shirtings and sheetings, but at low er prices than is generally obtained in the markets, Manufacturers are locked out of the outside world in all countries where there exists an irredeemable currency. The advan tages are always in favor of countries who are doing business on gold basis, on account of labor, which enters so largely into all manufactured articles being dear in such countries. When England had her irre deemable currency, from 1800 to 1821, she imported more goods than she exported. As Many Colored Men Voted Ticket—More vdhftd ie whites here than ererbefpre—yes, than twice as many as at any other in. They were chiefly influenced in the non-interference of the Govern. the Government .did not step in at the request of Governor Ames tbej have got th- reSaSniSFTnHB “gone back on them,” as they call it, and now, be ing without its support, they must cultivate friendly relations in polities with the whites. They know that they cannot maintain a con test with them without Government support, and as they have been deprived of that sup. port, the next best thing is to accept the inevit able. This was the chief influence operating among them here, and the great cause of such an unufUal number voting the Democratic ticket. k . Another influence was the well-known fact that the whiten are in arms; that they intend no longer to live under negro rule if they have to fight to get out. The ne groes ao not want a fight. They know what that means. So many voted with the whites as a matter of conciliation, preferring to see Democrats elected than to haye a row, in which they would be the chief suf ferers. The above, from the Cincinnati Commer cial, gives an insight to the recent election, as it appeared to Northern eyes, at Jack- son, the State capi ol. The truth of the whole matter is that the negroes of Mississippi, as well as through out the entire South, have discovered the consummate thievery and scoundrelism of the Southern carpet-baggers, and have determin ed to get rid of them forever. No doubt the whites were “in arms,” yet we presume the blacks were “in arms” also. If the latter were not provided with six-shooters, then Gov. Ames and his miserable satellites have not lived up to their privileges. “ There is much curiosity to know the ; reason for the violent assaults upon Gordon and Colquitt, which have appeared for the past three weeks in the Commonwealth. Can it be true that the author is an offi cial!?” ifclXOELLENZA. k syniaox.

The illustration is as true and applicable to the nation as to the individual, and a wild ex travagance and utter disregard for the necessary financial prudence and wisdom will as certainly bring ruin and bankruptcy to tbe one as to tbe other.

ITUs is the Law Universal. It is as true in tho immate- finantial shrewdness of tbe Eastern Shy- lock, to sco tho present oppressive and embarrassing system of taxation in every branch and department of our gov ernment, as the true a :d greater cause of that financial trouble which is now being so seriously felt in every section of the rial as in the material world, as easily|TT demonstrated in politics, religion and the other departments of life, as in physics.

You speak of cotton yarns having a sale like cotton; this is a great mistake. Cotton is always cash and never withont a par- chaser. ' Yarns on from two ind four months’ time, and often withont a pur chaser. I hold that if all the American crop was in yarns to-day, it would not be worth as much as the raw cotton, pound for pound. I have sold yarns in Philadelphia market on the same day selling cotton at 38 cents per lb. and cotton yarns at 40 cents. I never got the cost of tho cotton that went in the yarns. Yon will perceive yourself that many, in fact, th • large bulk of goods, require to be spun iu or near the same mill where the goods arc woven. If not, there is a large expense incurred in getting the bnnch or skein back on the quill ready for the shuttle and on the spool ready for the dresser. During the past decade more cotton indies nave been put in motion on the world than ever before since the world began, and what has been the result of this great addition to the spinning world? The result has been to reduce the price of prints from 35 cents in 1865 to 6^ cents in 1875, and nearly all other goods in like manner. There is more cotton also being produced year by year, than is consumed, from the I act that in 1865 the world was bare of cotton and cotton goods, while to-day we have stocked the markets, the stores and the families with a surplus of all kinds of cotton fabrics, and also have a million bales of cotton on the market, with a full crop under the gin houses. Thus, you sec, in ten years—from 1865 to 1875—the cotton makers have reduced the price of cotton from 40 eents to 12 cents in this market. You will admit that there has not been such a change wrought in any other commodity, and from this foct alone we should know that no other article has been so largely produced ov rthe daily consumption. I have no time to give these views a careful correction, if they need any. I have penned them on the moment, as you desired, but these views I have held for several years. Very truly, K. L.
