The crushing policy inaugurated by extreme - Radicals in_the South has naturally re-acted upon the North, East, and West. Monopolies have been legislated iato existence, and for a time the people unheedingly tolerated their exactions, until it became imperative that they -should be estopped or agriculture would languish. During fhe building up of these monopolies, labor was drawn from the /arm andTound lucrative employment; butj on their completion, the demand ceased, and the money borrowed from European and native capi- talists by these corporations had to be returned.

Hundreds have fall- en victims to the terrible scourge, and the number might have in- creased to thousands but for the panic which, was the result of the outbreak. During the ex- citement, nearly every person who could ran away without , ser- ious inconvenience removed fo a place of safety, and scores of men and women, who were well provided with worldly goods, abandoned all and flew to distant cities and towns, where they are now, for the., most- part either living on the bounty of Mends or temporarily qnar tered ""at ''"the expense of-; charitable associations. Those who have had the courage to re- main behind have been sadly thinned.
