TVEfDAY, MARCH 17, 18G5.
I ulatrurss of the Kadical Opposi
tiou to the President.
The policy of President Johnson for
the restoration of the late rebel Slates
to their relations with the Govern
ment, inherited from his predeewso r,
was fully understood by the party
which elected him, bo Boon as he took
eteps to carry it out, after the close of
the war. No one, after the issuance of
the proclamations declaring Tennessee
a State not in rebellion, and appoint
ing a Provisional Governor for North
Carolina, could have any doubts on the
eulject, or any excuse for misunder
standing his intentions. lie went on
with Li work as he begun it, and al
tUoufh party conventions and elec
tions were subsequently hld in many
of the loyal States, no open issue was
made with him. On the contrary, all
the conventions indorsed him, and ail
the elections were carried in Lis name.
Eat, when Congress met, a majority of
the members assumed to declare that
the- President's policy was wrong and
did not meet the approval of the peo
Tbey, therefore, exert themselves
to defeat it, and drive him from it.
They Lave not offered lue country a
better policy not being able to
agireupou aDylLuug to take its place.
'lh'i. is treating the President un
tturly and uukinuly. It is an insult,
too, to the people. They owe it to the
I'reiident and the country to abandon
iLeir dog-in the-macger mode of action,
abJ proclaim a well-defined policy. It
n evident that they deuire universal
unlade, and that to secure it, they
would forego all opposition to the com
plete le.toration of the late rebel
tateo to their constitutional rights and
piiviicges iu the Union. Lnl them,
tueii, Luve the manliness to make the
proposition, and give the people an op
portunity to choose between that and
the policy of the President. If, upon
fuLniitting the two policies to the peo
ple the decision shall be in favor of
tiieiiB, Trtsident Johnson will bow to
t'ue verdict, lie has the greatest respect
I jr the will of the people, fairly and
hoiK-htiy expressed, and will always

ur radicals are still trying to deceive
the mercantile community by charging
that the members of the lower branch
f the Legislature, who resigned to de
tent the piihhaj'e of Mr. Fletcher's Frau
ihiue Law, are responsible for the con
tinuance of the two per cent tax law
cu the sta ute book. To sustaiu the
ihi(.e they ought to le able to show
from the proceeding of the House, that
the radical members had made au ef
fort to repeal or modify the law; but
th:h La not been done. The truth is
the radicals have not agreed upon any
i:k it.Hiire for the repeal of the oppres
sive tax law. Il is the chief source of
levenue for cairyiug on the State Gov

The Steamer (icner.il Hooker Ilc
htroyed by l ire.
A sad occurrence took place near thia
port yesterday, by which 6ome eight
p-srsous were drowned, and others in
jured. The steamer General Ilooker,
captain Pavidioa, which has been ply
ing as a packet from this port to George
town, S. C, for several months, left
Koyce Sl Co. a Vharf, in this city, on,
Wednesday, about .S a. m., and about
one hour lter, when the steamer was
off Breech Inlet breakers, she wm
found to be on hre in and near the coal
bunkers. Although a stream of water
was immediately played on it, and
every tlijrt used to put out the flames,
they increased rapidly, and in some
fifteen minute the entire upper part
of the steamer appeared to be on fire.
The boats were got ready, and the
steamer pointed for the beach, but there
was a heavy sea rolling, which, with the
confusion among the passengers, inter
fered seriously with the use of the
boaU, aud tlually capsized and filled
them with water, causing the drowning
ol several ladies, and perhaps otherB.
The fire progressed so quickly that
the tiller ropes were burnt before the
Hooker could be got to the beach, and
the consequently became unmanagea
ble. TVhiie in this possition, passeu-j-era
took to the water, and hung with
tenacity to any object that would sup
The steamer Tilot Eoy, Capt Payne,
alo on her way to Georgetown, and
which was about one and a half miles
oil', put about and came to the aid of
tho Hooker as soon as her situation was
discovered. Capt Payne, on reaching
the spot, anchored his steamer to keep
hr head to wind and- sea, got out his
life-boat, which was taken charge of by
Capt John Ferguson, who, together
wiiu CHpt, Davidson, of the ilooker,
who was in a half sunken boat, and Mr.
Poane, pilot, succeeded in placing some
twenty persons on the Pilot Boy, by
which means they reached the city
about 1 1 a. in., bnd bringing the first
news of the disaster. The following are
the names of those who came up in the
Pilot Boy, as near as could be ascer
tained: D liialey, wife and bi-der, passengers,
Georgetown, S 0.
W Buike, pasaenjrer.
.1 11 Foot, passenger.
Master Bu-h, passenger, Georgetown,
Mrs David.-.on aud child, wife of the
Captain of the Ilooker.
b (i Collin, Mate ot the Hooker.
A F Doaue, l'ilot of the Hooker.
Four other white passengers.
The body of Miss Bubh.
Two Kireuien, Steward, Waiter, and
one deck hand.
Also, three or four colored persons,
one a woman badly burnt.
The foliawmg lauded ou Sullivan's
Mr long, Engineer.
Mr Kottereau, Furs?r.
A nd two deck hands.
The following aro lost:
Mrs Khodes, passenger of George
town, South Carolina.
Miss Belle Ilialey, of Philadelphia.
Miss Bush, daughter of the Mryor of
Georgetown, 6. C, who was just return
ing home from school. Uer body was
kept atloat by her clothing, and she
was picked up, but life was extinct
when bhe was got on board the steamer.
The number of colored persons
drowned we found it impossible to
learn, and placing them at four or five,
wo do fo only conjecturally there may
have been a greater number. The
Jlookr r ha3 burnt to the water's edge,
and iia3 floated ashore on Sullivan's
Island. The bodies of Mrs. Rhodes and
and a colored woman floated ashore on
the bech yesterday, and others will no
doubt soon tind their way there. Cap

''Dkab Six As we have now
neatly completed our lines of defense
we hare nothing more, in my opinion,
to feiir from tho enemy, provided we
cun keep our men to their duty, and
make them watchful and vigilant; but
it 1.1 among the most difficult tasks I
ever undertook in my Ufa to induce
these people to believe that there is or
can be danger till the bayonet is pushed
at their breast; not that it proceeds
from any uncommon prowess, but rath
er fiorn an unaccountable kind of stu
pidity in the lower class of these peo
ple, which, believe me, prevails too gen
erally among the otiicets of the Massa
chusetts part of th army, who are near
ly of tho hame kidney with the privates,
aud a ids not a little to my difficulties,
as there n no kucIi thing as getting of
ficers of t'ui stamp to exert themselves
iu carrying orders into execution. To
curry favor with the men (by whom
they were chosen, t,nd on whose smiles
potibly they may think tUey may
again rely) seems to be one of the prin
cipal objects of their attention. 1 sub
mit it, therefore, to your consideration,
whether there is, or is not, a proprie
ty m that resolution of the Congress
which leaves the ultimate appoint
ment o. all officers below the rank of
Genet ;d to the Governments where
the regiments originated? Now the ar
my is become continental. To me, it
appeals improper iu two points of
view. First, it is giving that power and
weight to an individual Colony which
ought of right lo belong to the whole.
Then it damps tha tourit and ardor
of volunteers from all but the four
I'ew Kr.glatid Governments, as none
but their people have the least chance
of g ettinj into otlicu. Would it not
be l etter, therefore, to have the war
rants, which the Commander-in-Chief j
is authonred to give, i.ro ii;,.ii,r.:. at:
proved or disapproved by the Conti
uental Congress, or a committee of their
liody, which 1 should suppose in any
long recess must always sit? In this
case every gentleman will stand an
euu:u chance of being promoted, ac
cord. ug lo his merit in tha other ail
ollices w ill be confined to the inhabit
ants of the four New Kngland Govern
ments, which in my opinion is itnjiolitic
to a degree. 1 have made a pretty
gooJeh'iW nmoru such kind of oflicers
as the iisse:K-hueiu ti overs rr.ent
abounds in since I came to this camp,
having t roken one Colonel and two
CapUin for cowardly behavior in the
action on Bunker s Hill; two Captains
icr drawing more provisions and pay
lii.-.u thev nn.d men in their company.
and one lor being tbseut from his post
when Hie enemy p.ppeared tuere and
burnt a house iut by IU Besides
tbeee. 1 have at tins time one Colonel

vocating the election of Governor Jas. E.
English, candidate for Governor of Con
necticut, a gentleman who is openly com
mitted to the support of your veto and the
defene of your policy of reconstruction, in
opposition to the disusioniats ot Connecti
cut. "I am opposing the election of Genereral
James Ii. lianley, who openly disapproves
of your veto and your 22d of February
speech, and declines to support your policy

March 23, -
A prominent member stated on the floor
of the House to-day that he was aware of
the fact that the veto message of the civil
rights bill had been completed and would
be sent to the Senate en Monday.
The Associated Press telegraphed a very
erroneous copy of the loan bill as it passed
It appears, from an exemination of the
enrolled bill, that it contains no such pro
visions as so widely published, declaring
that the bonds which may be disposed of
elsewhere than in the United. States may
be made payable, both principal and inter
est, in the coin or ctarrency ot the country
in which they are made payable and that
they shall not bear a rale of interest ex
ceeding five percent.
The bill as it parsed allows the Secretary
tn dispose of bouds elsewhere than in the
United States ; but it says nothing is to the
rate of interest on such bonds, or how they
are to be paid.
