Be so good, dear reader, you who come
under the category, to bear in mind the promises
made us~a little while back to Tay up early ; we
have done our part, ndw do yours. Money- was
scarce then,'while provisions were low ; then ma-4

are so high as scarce to be reached with a ten
foot pole, and currency a trifle down, you pro

Stack to the rack gentleman, f6daer or no fod-.
. der, and pay accotding to the then value.
A Word in Seasor.
We have been often tempted to say a word
or two against the.toorcommon, and sififul habit
of Sunday visiting. Of all days in the week this!
should be the last, for. cotymon and indiscrimi
nate visiting. A volun might be spoken or
written on the subject. It should be a day of rest,
rest from th' busy cares of the week, free from
all- thought of worldly ma,tters, for retirement
_rand meditation. To the christian man how re
freshing the thought, that in the midst of his
family he can enjoy the calm delighrt of the
Sabbath, and remember the day- to keep it holy.'
But coming froi the place of worship he finds.
a few particula# friends, who having nothing else
to doi'havc stopped in to while away~ their idle
ness. Of course they are invited to stay, to take
dinner or supper, and a little extra preparation
or cooking has to be done, servants having-per
F haps finished what ias to be done, are called up
and made-to 'fly around,' and the whole, Sundiy
arrangement thrown into -derangement. Think
of the topics too which are iitroduced and dis
cussed, how often unimproving, unsatisfying and
altogether unsuitable to the day. Sweet is the
- day of rest. Let not the priri!ege be abused,
- fritter not the day away in idjeness, fri-volity and!
sin. Think of it, Sunday visitors, make home
hbappy1 y-staying.at h9ine an.d doing 'your -duty
* -there,. and your neighbor-the better for this act
of consideration, will thik-the more of yog that
-he i& able to sit down free from Sunday visitors.
* . -A little wholesome advice'from the p ilpit, would
greatly help to convinei this class of the wrong
thdy Mnfict on the right.'thinking portion of al
- community, by such an -idle ansi pernicious .
* . North Carolina, it is said, is making ac
* ~ tive exertions t6 secure emigration to her terri
* - tory. -Offices are being opened in the North to
furnish information and encourage emigration.
And-that the people of North Carolina are anx
ious to have the State filled with- Northern set
* lters, an.d desire to -have their resources fully de
* veloped. The feeling is very strong in -favor of
the.new systeni of labor, and .a large majority
* . :xpress gladness at the abolitioh of slavery.
They offer'for sale or lease large quantities of'
land, gold, iron and lead mines, and water-pow
er, and offer -liberal induceenig to. en.Igration.
* This is 'the first step of the kind taken by any.
* g~ The NorthertiPress, commenting on the
* -speech of Gov.' Perry at-Greenville, admires his
frankness, but when he eulogizes General Lee as
next to Washington ; declares the abolition of
slavery a curse to the negro, and speaks of his
* - repugnance to going back into the U7nion, his re
marks excite the utmost indignation of tbe ra.di
* cal Republicans. The T 'a'ne thinks the speech
* is a fair.iudication that South Carolina is not yet
- ripe for reconstriJetion. President Johnson,
however, is said to be flim in the resolve that
the State shall have the same clh :xee as her Son
T - hr sisters.
" Various reports are in circulation in re
gard to the health of Mr. Jefferso:u Davis. The
* . Charleston Courier's comrespondent says his con
dition is extremely bad, that he cannot surviuve
* , . long, and takes no exercise whatever, anid that
lie is denied the -pri ilege of all books except the
bible.. His sight is~ said to be failing. A For-j
* ~ tress Monroe correspondent sayys that he is in
*good health, that his eyesight is not impaired,
and his appetite remarkably good. No one is
* ~ allowed to see him except Surgeon Craven and

it will also'carry passengers from Coiumbia--o
Hope Station, in time to take the train the same
day for Greenville.
Q" The Postmvsfer General has arranged the
rompensation an'd other preliminaries for t-esu.
ming the transportation of the Sourherni mails at
the earliest pi-acticable pert'od, and is - gradually
restoring the service In those States.
Q"Over two hundred applications for par.
don.s were filed in thE ofice Of the Attorney-Gen

Tho =as Meeting of Saturday.
Agreeable to the spggestions of sundry citi"
zens, and in accordance with the -views- of Gen.
Van Wyck, a mass. meeting of Freedmen, to
which planters were invited, was held on Satur
day, at Academy Grov . The' purpose was to
give a good, plain, sensible talk, 'to correct erro
neous ideas and fat'e notions, growing out of
the new relation of affairs, and if -possible, by
this'bi tafk, this general cxplanatiog, to obviate
the necessity of the thousand daily and hourly
little explanations and settlements, arising from
the false notions which have crept into the heads
of the negro, .and the misconception in a" few
canes by the planter, as to his,present relation.
We are pleased to say- that the General's- talk was
all, and pechaps more than was expected. He is
a good speaker, clear, foreible, and is perfectly
a home on the stump. Althougha difficult mat
ter to bing himself down to, and touch the dull
understandings of the mass around him, yet he
happily succeeded in-doing so, and in fixing their
attention, while in the plainest manner, yet posi
tive and emphatic, all was explained . and dwelt
upon until the dullest mind must have been im
pressed. The speaker grew eloquent in expatia
ting upon the great boon -which had been con
(erred upon them, who. without effort of their
own, in a moment as it were, stood -in the broad.
sunlight of freedom, but he warned them not to
abuse it, and to be worthy of the boon, for other
wise better had it not come. Each of the com
mon abuses and errors were 'touched upon and
explained', and- the proper course pointed out.
Idling, vagrancy, going off from the plantation
without permission, laying .down the hoe, refu
sals to spin by the women, and, to drive the car
riageby the. men, impudent language or jaw,
neglect in showing proper and customary respect
- to former masters, in fact to all persons, thieving,
Lying,drinking, and many other offences, were
shown to.be.wrong, and all of which must be
corrected. Mary, he said, had the false idea that
land and stock were to be divided among them,
but they must get that of their heads at- once ;1
that.by labor, industry and economy alone, can
they ever hope to become possessors of proper
ty; they.must work,' economise, save, and buy
these things as the .poor white man does. By
working faithfully now, by QUedience, kind and
respectful.deportment, they would have the love
and confidence of former masters, and be able to
get rork when their contracts were out, and
those too must be sacredly observed. They are
ignorant, but have minds andl hearts capable of
cultivation, and must study, a.d learn, not only
the whole alphabet of freedom, but the A. B. C.
of every thing else. Those who- ,wei-e dissatis
fed with their present homes and employers;'
must~ be patient and en'during, and wait till Jan
uary, and if then they could *better themselves,
to do so, but now to remnain close Zat home and
work;. freedom did 'not 'mn idleness.. Their
old masters still loved them, and' jwoulf keep.
them emiploved_if faithfut otherwise there-ould.
be -nothing to prevent their being turnent
homeless wandeTers. The planter was shown a
fe.w errors, likely to. be committed, and which lhe
rusted time and' good sense would soften down,
hat in the end good. feeling and kindliness would
be the sentiments of' both classes. It is imr'os
sble to go over the-whole ground coiered by the
eneral's able talk, suffice it it was good, to the
point, and we hope happy in its results.
Other sections, as designated- in published or
er, will be#isite d by the General, and the same

While Americans are calling.for a republic in
exico, the Irish are organizing~ for the liber-ty

for its avoved object the overthrow of British
power inf the direen Isle,- number-hundreds of.
thousands of me-mbers in this couintry, Canada

riled and'prepared for war... The meetings
which are held weekly, are enthusiastic and
rowded to overflowing. t can best gire you an
dea -of the'sentimients of the Fenians by quoting
fom the recent speech fMr- Morrisson, a dis
nguished.-orator; at an Irish meeting in. St.
Luis. -Th eloctilpapers say :
"Mr.~ Morrisson spoke at great length, and at
tmes with an eloquence and earnestuess that
ired the hearts of his hearers. and aaee
shouts and .cheers that were beard half a.mile
:istant. He portrayed the happy condition of
reland in past times, before the .treacherous
Saxozi lad trampled her under his feet ;- dwelt
wit) touching pathos' upon the -desolat'.on that
ow spread a gloom over the Green Isle, and
pietu' ed the coming struggle, which he said-was
ear a~t hand, when the.' green flag shall be un
furled 'on the Irish hills, and the crash of Irish
musketry shall be heard on .The shores, of Eng

rishmen in America, and nearly nine millions of
rish dEs. ent. -In Ireland there are at leastone

Saxon, and the two r-aces could not live in peace

Thanks are due the' following gentlemen for
late-papers, viz: Orderly John Mead, of the 56th,
Messrs. Carrington, J. S. Ring, and Capt. Wm..
Kinard. The kiudress and attention of these
gentlemen are fully appreciated.
SALE Dxr.-.The interesting occasion failed to
bring out many, consequently the streets were
only moderutely lively. Too busy at "fodder
pulling" will account for the .absence of some,
wagoning cotton to Augusta and other points for
that of others. A few small sales of furniture
THE PHcTx.-We are requested by the enter
prising publisher of thi paper to state, that Mr.
Thos. Purse will visit Nuwberry this week, for
the purpose -of receiving subscriptions to the
same, for which he is authorized to receipt. The
Phcenix we are pleased to see bas been enlarged,
and in a new and improved dress,'presents a very
.-neat and attractive appearance. We commend
it to the public.
Our old friend, Dr. McKellar, we are-glid to
see, again at his old professton. His long expe
rience, we are 'confident,_will enable him to give

is invited to caid of Adams, Frost & Co.,
Do's-T LIKE nT.-Or, as our friend who 'brings
you m.usic' used to say when there was nothing
to 'wet his ahistle' with, or i4 other words noth
ing to drink, we 'no like dese tings.' And who
would, pray ? Would you reader? If a man, a
little man,-no larger than yourself promised you
a fine, large melon, and failed to come to time,
would you be pleased? Would you not irather
want to poke him under the fifth rib, as we in
tend doing, and put the lark-in such a fix as will
stop him doing so in future.
APPRECTATIvE.- As an,.evidence of how well
appreciated our paper is, we state that in one
week, the last, our circulktion as increased some
two hundred copies, .and the demand too was all
in.the .town. This sp aks'well for the community
as-a.reading~one, and one i.hich is not afraid to
patronise ~eir town paper.- Gentleme6, we are
proud.'~ You do us he'nor. -Long may ire have
strength and ability to work for and accomrmodate
you. We had almost forgotten to mention, that
two Thirds of th~e two hundred took it becaiuse
-eahe-ovror's gr'ociamation, and there being
nothing else.n the paper they cared to see, dij
not thiok it worth paying for. Some few having
rio change promised to comnb back, on that -fcw
we base strong hopes. This week we intend is
suing a large extra n~umber, to meet the increas
ON THE RoAD-SIDE.-Comidng from the groire;
after -Gcn. Van Wyck's talk on Saturday, we
were surprised 40'hear the remarks2 of sonme.of
the'darkies who stood within-sound of his voice.
"Book larning" can't convince them. Oneasaid,
"well he was*glad de ginral said dey would hab
de land and horses and mules, he thought so all
de tihne." Another, "bfess de giural, for ho*says
we can marry any body, now.'' Strange, too,
that so-soon after speaking of steailing, e soldier
should have caught no less than fifteen Qf thcm
on a cer'tain pilantation can-ying oti a wholesale
depredation. For staine,! colored ~pulation!
what do you mnean ?
We understand that the Gen. beirig informed
of this,'lamented and n'ouirned considerably at
these instancos of igntorance and delusion, and
promised to talk more convincingly in future.
- coxMM N rIED,
Glimpses of the dawn of returning civilization
appear in the proclamat ion of our Provisional Go*
ernor, informing us that an election will be'had
to elect members to aStite Convention; the pur
pose of which is plainly indicated. L ow that we
have for sometifne suffered many of .the horrors
peculiar to anarchy, it becomes us especially to
embrace with joy and thankfulness, the present
golden opportunity of rebigiding the strong bul
wark of civil law, and that we may build adyan~
tageously let us be careful - in* the seleotion-of
members. Let us elect mren of sound- practicat
minds,- capablo .of divesting themselves of 61
preudces. Men that -cai-tuirn even a defeat-to
advantags, men that are., willng-to accept~ the
issue as~it is forced upon us, and to work for the
good of the country, of our -whole country.
Prosperity and happiness at home, as- well as
respetability abr,oad, are still within -our reach~
*It is not to be expected that affiliation between
the N*rth. and South (although inevitable)-ean
be brought about suddenly, but certairly plicv
wisdom, humanity and Christiariity demand that2
we sheuld approxlimate i lat condition as closely
as human prejudices will permit. Nearly the
whole State has now subsoribed to the oath of
allegiance, if so, we will ge -very npar guilty of
perjury to cuitivate a low spirit of revenge, or to
hed ourselves adverse totho true interest of the
Union. Tis true the war- bas not ended as we
wished, far from-it, - But ifi whave by reason of
overhelming numbers, failed-in we' -et ns'show
that in peace. we can triumph at least, over the
uprisings of' low revenge that characterize th'd
savage. fet us not despair, for we apay yet-be
abont to assumne to the Federal _( ment
One thing is-certain, that we can be neither great
nor happy, if -left to ogrselvas .opposed to the
Union. And happily for u.a,-wehave for.our aid
the eiperience.and wisdom of-au able Provision
al -Governor, who-is "the vight -manin the-gt
plaice." Let us not elect to the ietntion-pa
litical aspirants, for of that kind of meacame. all
the- evils we now enduire; Let -us .ele t men of
clear heads; of pure- hearts, with the good of the
whole country for their aim,. and men that have
