The Greenville Mountaineer says: A recent
order of His Excellency, President Johnson sets
aside the decision of the military authorities, and
the parties elected will forthwithtake the posi
ians assigned them by their fellow citizcnsThis
is a gratifying evidence of the strong-desire of
the President to see the civil laws and usagbs,of
the States in full operation.

r WASEDxTToN, -'AUgust 15.-The President it is
known from.the representations of his intimate
f-riends, is determined to pursue substantially the
reconstruction progr-amine thus laid down,-having
reasonable evidence from all theSouth that it will
be successful. Many of the accounts from: that
section are exaggerated and misrepresent The
true and fanorable condition of public opinion.
A&the result of careful inquiry, it is believed
there is an unwilling-ness on tbe part of a portion
of the. Cabinet, to have Jeffersoa Davis tried for
* t reason, while there is reason for' asserting that
.he President is persistent.-inwhaving hi.:rbrought

to represent this district. It is well known that
I was a member of the Convention ivhidh framed
andl executed the Ordinance of Secession. Cir
cumistan~ces have ehanged. . I nok desire to see
the res'toration of the State<to the Union. The
dearest interests of the~ counIt*y are riow i quess
tion. There should be no divisions, no sectional
or party spirit enkindled an'd aroused. -Old
things, as well'as old p.oliticians must give way
to the progressive spirit. As such I most re
spectfully declin~e the nmniition, hoping, that
the fund of good sense, which is yet in the dis
trict, will not permit itself to be deceived by the
arts of false r. asoning or false patriotisml ; but
will ta -e special care to -elect such only as ar'e
solid, honest-hearted men ; who will be sure to
consult their judgmnent, not their passions or
prejudices, and who will endeavor to do that
which will promote the happiness, the peace,ind
the prospdrity of the country.
