Pecing to leavethe S:atC, in a few days,
.fothn uncertain pe,iod, I cannot do so without
'empressing to -my fellow-citizens mytrofomUA
-senssef the honor pAid to -me 4y the vote gien
tne in the fccent election for Governor. - In
t-turning my thians i-then foi the late sponta
neous,and exraordinary ianifesEtit3n of their
-kindness, it is due to them' tAIt I shotid state
- the reasons .hievh induced me to decline to -be a
-candiate.. In thi first place, the Convention-,
which.gave the eltetiou ofGovernor to the peo
'pte, had, with. singular unanimity-though not in
th.eir public capacn.y-requested,the distinguishied
- eatleman who has been . ceeted to becomne a
-candidate for the office. This he consented to
-do, though, doubtless, at great personal itcon1ve
dienceo, and a hrvy sacrifice of his private miter
ests. Unier thsc eireumst-- , I was unwill
i6g to do a'nytbing that might cause a political
contest ht the State. I thought that .no good
couild arise at homia from suh a contest, whilst
-it mi-hr do us injinite mischief abroad., The
president of the UnNd StIates had.exhibited riot
only a strong disposition to protect the South
froin the radicalism of the North, but to re-instate
hs in our civil and political rights. I feared that
* my election-by embarras-,ing him in his labors
and policy-might incidentally do harm to. the
State. S'uperadded to these considerations of a
public character, deterring me frd'n appearing as
a candidate, there were others of a- priwate na
ture no less -trong. My affairs, neglected for
fve years, .imperatively. demand my pernal at
.7 terdon. Had I beIieved that my election as
-Geveruer could really benefit the State, or sub
serve ayiy of her true interests, no sacrifice of a
private nature,.ho'e great, would have detero
red me fron accepting that or an other positio
to-which she might have called me ;,but regard
- g my mominatiM only as a onpliment f on
'wue of my former comrades, I felL at liberty to
- decline,,hough -deeply- sepsible of the -hono.r
paid to me by the nomination, and the manner
i6mldch it was received throughout the State.
These re'asons, which I hope you w1l- understand
ad appreciate, -impelled me to withdraw my
name. Having-givel ie reasons for the course

In Copain Cgunty, Mississippi, a dimclulty re

WASHIN, November T2.--oTp Secreta
ry of State has telegraphed Governor Perry
to continue to act as Governor of South Ca.ro-,
lina until relieved by the President's order.
, le says the President regrets that iieither
the Convention norLegislature has repudiated
thWar.debt, and that South Carolina seeMs
to decNne -the Congressional amendinent to
the Federal Constitution -abolisbing slavery.
Yesterday,.Seward telegraphed Perty, for
ti-President, that the Early adoption of the
amendment was deened peculiarlyinqportant,
and especially desirable with reference to the
gencral situation, of the Union, The -Presi
2ent"s opifion, before expressed, remniris un
changed.
To-dgy, members of the late North Caro
ina Convention and other gen4l.emen of that
State, visited the President. Mr. Read, in
bhalf of the Convention, told what was done,
i.>cluding the declaration tirat the secesston
ordinance was nati and void ;slavery prohibi
ted, and the debt centracted in aid of the re
bellion repudiated. The Convenmion ajs
Congre-, to-repeal the test oath, tid it M
thought respectful that this request ,should
pass Lbrough the President',hands, with the
hope that hiOmagnaniuilty would add to it
some'reflections which.would avail wi.h Con
gress.
The President, reciprocating -this .oncilia
-tory spirit, said North Carolina had de'ne-meh'
and well, bit someting yet remains -to -be
done to rerIer restoration practicable-name
Iy, tho acceptance of thed'Congressional anti
slavery amendments to the Constitaion,; as
Irticula4iy important to the successful resto-.
.ration so much desired.. This action must d.
pen&unou events, and Holden will sgtin be
instructed to'continue to execute his func
tions as Go-ernor until relieved by orders to
that effect.
The avail4b-e s1rength of the armi exceeds
180,000 men; of which about one half are'ast

The United States Consul stationed at Ha
vana, under date of October 31, informs the,
State Department that the Captain-General of
the Island of Cuba has-tendered to the British
Consul.-General troops and.war vessels to go
.andassist the authorities in Jamaica. The'
war vessels.were accepted, and two 'of tfrem
sailed on the date -of -his despatch from St.
Jago dd Cuba. -
The Consul at Havand encloses f the State
Department a despatch from otir Oonsul at
Kingston, in which he states that his prede
cessor, who has had some [Gur yearSepe
rience with the islanders, expresses fears that
it will require several months to su'ppress the
insurrection effectually. He expresses hope
that an Am6ri,an war steatmer may be at once
despatebed to that port; and states there are
oai the island of Jamaica about 400,000 iribabi
tanfts, of which 10,000 are whites, about 75,
000 mulattoes and the remaidier (.315,00';)
are blacks. The present outbreak evidently
has bein long contemplated, and is intended
to be'a war of extermination by the blacks
aginst the whites, and the great disparity- of~
numbers gives the former.a great advantage;
they have, moreover, chosen a time when
there are but. few English troops at thyat sta
tion,and but one small gn.glish war steamer

AUSIOs.SOLbIER To THEB ~r EetE.--A day
on two since, a Confed'erate soldier, recently
discharged from a Nor therni prison, was re
turning~ home to'the far off South, sick, emna
ciatg and almost dead, when, in passmtg tihe
Brodvay Hotel, arn4ndividuai~w ho,.was sit
ting in a chair by the door,- on Broadwa-y, ac-'
cosed hOm with something near the fuooir
language: '"So you got your n~gh t$, did you,
yu d-d cowardly Southern son of a h-hb?"
The pale, battle-scarred veteran turned slow
ly around, wie a cold gleam of lightnring lit
hs dark eye, and said slowly, -"I am noecow
ard, and my poor old, g;-ey-haiTed mioth'er is
a decent woman;i and, "sir, I have seen the
day when you wocid niot dare insult me thusi
'but. 'am now among strangers, sick and, fee

tised me M-th transporaion for that .pur
pose, andl I do not Lelie(e it or. its soldiers
would thus insult a sick-man."
A Union soidrer passing.. by~ happenedt.
hear the whole affair,- and at the conclusion
of the. poor fellow's words, turn'ed to the
scoundrel sittut~ by the door with,- "You.
ths utrage the feelings of a man-not able
to defend himself against your cowardly as
sauls-you miserable dog-you -sneaking

yers, while you had not courage enough. in
yout- coward heart to shoulder arms on either
side. No man would use such language to

ballets whistle. I honor him for his courage,
but despise you for your infernal eowardise

SorI as you will not soon foret. ; It was adl
the excited crowd, which,; racted by high
words, had ga.tbered around, could do to keep
the noble fellow from roundly thrashing the
mireant. The Union soldier accompanied
the sick soldier to the boat, as -h6 said, -"to
see no more'insults - should, be given him."
Thi ohei -a~ction deserves couimendation
and reward.
UNrIME9 GA.orArTB.-The Str Louis in
teigecer states that a few nighjs .ince, af
ter the family of a Mr. F'itch,-residing in the
city, had retired to rest, a fellow named Rich
ard Smith,having by:msome mieans got into
the house, entered the- apartment of a~ young
lady,.aind rifled the drawers of a bureau of i.s
contents, consisting of some thirty -dollars' in
moey, a gold chain and other arfieles of je'
ery Thus far the operation was exceeding
ly commonplace ; 'out not content with his
acpuiton of valuables,, the impudent rascal
could not -think of parting with their lair
owner w ithout le-aving her some token 'of his
n~octai-nat visit. So stepping up .to the bed
where she la.y, enfolded in the arms of Mor
pheus, he imprinted da Ter ruby lips one
parting kiss. Whether it wasthe report that
triust have necessarily followed one of the
right sort, or something else that awakened
her, we do net learn ; but ere the sentimental
chap could beat a retreat, the fair hand of tihe
damsel was found ra-ppiitng the skirts-of his
coat, while the voice call -ondly for help.
The house was soon aroo , and Smith ar
rested and con signed' to the calaboc'se, to re
pent at leisure.
The cold weather has popped the New
York world into its winter garments. The
ladie ar e donning their furs arid changing
their fall "streins"~for cloth and- velvet bhon
nets. The latter are elaborately sprirnkled
over with spangles, gift ornaments &c., It is
quite the.fashion, now for-the young ladies to
wear stuffed birds on their hats. I saw one
the other day ornamnented by a bird with a
red head, yellow breast andl biue wings, which
was so fixed as to convey the idea that it was
about to rise and fly away with the hat,
wvearer and all. Ther-e is no telling to what
extremes onir dear dependencies will go. I
read in the fashionable organs that the latest
invention for the ladies is a - "palpitating bo
son," which is set in motion byt a concealed
spring, when'~an'extra display of "emotion" is
required.
