civi? assistance to the military when called upon,
and sQ on.. We are altogether at a Loss to im
gtne from-whose heart such a tissue o.f vile cal

were batchled. The contrary of all this is the
case. An instance, perhaps, may occur here or

a denied. To stig matize a whole distriet, ho aever,
-with such a ca:alogue of falseness shows an utter

iaject of congratulation among law abiding and

Ordnmance f the 00vw tin
As Court will soon sit, we republish for the
benefit of the- legal fraternity, the Ordinance of
the late State Convention, the main otject of
which, says the Pickens Courier, is to confirm
what has been done during the late war. t
The fifth section provides a mode for the set
tlement of all contracts made between the first
day of January 1862, and the 15th day of May
18t0. The value of the %rticle sold or purchased
is to r-gulate, in all cases, the price thereof. t
How this value is to be ascertained, we know
not; but we presume the lawyers will find a
remedy. It is important that a few cases arising r
under this Ordinance, as well as contracts for ne
gro property previously made, should be deter
mined by the Courts, so that correct rules may
be established by , hich settlements can be made a
without resorting in all cases to the law:
To Declare in force the Constitution and Laws
heretofore in force in this State, and the Acts,
official, public and private donle, and ap
pointsvents and elections made under au
thority of' the same. r
We, the People of the State of South Carolina, v
by iur Delegates in Convention met, do or-' .
1. That the Constitution of this State, as or
dained and established by the People in Conven
tion at Charlestmn, on the eighth day of April, e
In the year of our Lord one thousand eight hun- t
dred and sixty-one, is in force, except as amend- d
ed or altered by this Constitution. r
2. That all laws, orders, regulations and rules, e
ascertaining the rights of persons, natural or arti- 3
ficial, or regulating the proceedings iu the Courts I
of Law or Equity, which were of force in this ,
State on the nineteenth day of December, in the y
year of our Lord one thonsand, eight hundred '
anld sixty, are now in force, and shallso continue a
until altered, modified, repealed or avoided by s
proper State authority, except in so far as the a
same or any of them hare been or las been, v
since that time, so altered, modified, repealed or d
S. That all Acts and Resolutions of the Gene- e
ral Assembly of this State, which have been t
passed, adop;ed or ratified since the nineteenth n
day of December, in the year of our Lord one
thousand eight hundred and sixty aforesaid, are a
now in force and zhall so continue until altered, P
modified, repealed or avoided by proper State v
aauthority, except such as have expired by their V
own limitation, or by reason~of the cessation of h
the causes whichr occasioned their enactment ; 0
not however, including within this exception the
Act of Assembly prohibiting the collection of
dvbts usually known as the Stay Law: Provided, t
however, That all laws, resolutions, orders or
rules embraced within the terms of this and the
preceding Section, which recognize the-existence
of slavery, and regulate the relations of waster
and slave, and define and enforce the rights and
duties growing there out, or create and punish i
offences against such rights or against the public ~
policy of the State in rezerence to slavery, have ,
beome of no further or future force or effect, by d
reason of the extinction of slavery.
4. That all official Ac-s in the Executive and h
other D.'partmnents of the Government of this li
State, judicial proceedings, rules of Court, sales, r
conveyances, con:racts, obligations, instruments a

all respe'cts the same force, effect and validity as
if the same had been had, made, executed or in
curred during a tirme of peace, and as if the Or
diance of' Secession had not been passed : Pro- it
vided, That in every action arising in contract, c
weher under seal or p'arole, writtLen or oral,
made between the first day of January, in the
year of our Lord 1862. and the fifteenth day
of May in the year of our Lo.d, i86.5,it shall be
lawful for either party to the action to introduce a
testimony showing the true value and real char- tl
acter of the consideration o; such contract at eC
the rime it was made, so that regard being had 0
to the particular circumstances of each case, such it
verdict or decree may be rendered as will effect si
substantial justice between the parties : And, o
P ovided further, that all prosecutions now pend- ~
dinig under any Act or Acts of the General As
sembly passed to aid or assist in the war against c
the United States shall; be'discontinued.
5. The General Assembly of this State is for

other rights, or punishment of any kind, or any

Judge Perkins, Governor Harris, C lonel t
(Pwnee) White and his family, the Episcopal
Minister, Mr. Hlolman and his family, myself and o
others, are now living in our new town-Car- I

of new homes for themselves and families. They

The Freedman's Bureau Bill Vetoed.
W.ASHINGTON, Feb, uary 19, 1866.
The President sent to the Senate his veto of
he amendatory Freedmen's Bureau Bill. The
'resident. takes the ground that it is unconstitu
ional, and that the appointment of agpn:s in
xery country where freedmen and refugees ex
st would iipose too much patronage in the
ands of the Executive, and would enable him to
i e it for the attainment of political ends if he
ras so disposed. He expresses the earnest hope
hat a question so important to the country will
ot become a law unless upon the deliberate con
ideration of the people, and that it should re
eive the sanction of an enlightened publi - judg
The House, by a large majority, h as passed
esolutious declaring that the rebellion has de
irived the people of the South of all civil govern
acent, and it becomes the duty of Congress to en
ble them to organie State Governments. The
'resident is fully justified in maintaining the
uspension of the Habeas Corpus in the Southern
tates, and in keeping troops therein for the pro
ection of Union citizens and freedmen.
Tns SOUTH CAROLINA R.A!L RoAD.-Having
ad frequent occasion of late to pass over this
ad, we have been most favorably impressed
rith the enterprise that has been displayed in its
ntire management, and which has thus early
laced the whole line in excellent running order.
'lie traveling community cannot but feel great
2A for the accomnuodations that are being extend
d to them in the way of new co.ehes, as fast as
bev can be completed. In this connection we
Cen it but a simple actofjustice to award the
ced of praise which is due to the gentlemanly
orps of Conductors now engaged on the road
lessry. W. D. Kennedy, J. E. Thames and S. H.
.. Price. The tiaveling pulic will reco:nize in
em persons with whom they were fimiliar in
ears past. They are the same obliging and
ourteous gentlemen now as then-in facv, they
re ever solicitous for the comfort of their pas
angers, and.at any time, should anything be
miss, it may reasonably be that the fault does
ot lie at their door, and is i eyond their imme
iate means of correction. They take particular
ai 4s to keep their cars cl,-anly, and most earn
stly urge the co-operation of the passengers in
uis most important matter. The excellent order
iaintained on the cars, and the unceasing efforts
n the part of the ConduCtors to make all thi:igs
grecable, is a constant theme of pr,ise on the
art of those who frequent the road. In fact,
*e have frequently heard persons froi a distance,
ho are constantly traveling, assert that they
ave never imet with a more milling disposition
a the part of Rail Road Conductors to make
assengers comfortable than the have witnessed
n the South Carolina Rail Road. We think the
o - pany are fortunate in retaining the services
f these gentlemen in their important positions.
Ve had almost forgotten the corps of young
entlemei who are acting as I;ggage Masters or
,ssistant Conductors-Messrs. W. A. Bradley,
dw. U. Cudworth and W. Barlow. It would
ave beent an act of gross injustice to close this
aragraph without awarding to them the praise
'ich their well-known courtesy and obliging
isposition has emainently entitled them to.
In conclusion we will state that the Company
ave in their employ some of the miost competent
ngineeis known to the Rail Road service. We
egret that we are not in possession of their
ames to make this record complete. However,
-e will reiterate what we have often heard ex
ressed, "that more careful and punc-ual Engin
er are not to be fo-md on any rail road in the
,tntr"-the truthfulness of which assertion we
elieve the records of the road will fully sustain.

'nion and American clos-s, a notice of Gen
ragg's official report of the battle of Perryville
s llows :
Our chief object in making these notices how
ver, was TO refer to the manifest unkindness
isited upon an eminent man and officer by thist
eport. Gen. Hlolk is charged with disobediencel
orders, and thus initiating all the disasters to!
eexpedition. In view of the fact that the
omading General lost the golden opportunity
f the enterprise by leaving his position at Green
ver, and thereby opening an easy way to Buell
> reach Louisville and receive additions to his
>rce equal to his whole army at Bowling Green
nd in view of the lurthier fact that after leaving
tardstown, Gen Bragg instituted a policy of dis
ategration, at tihe very moment when concen
ration became indispensable to his success, his
eble effort to rmake General Polk the scape-goa t
f his errors and short comings isno less disgrace
d than ungenerous.-This is about all we have
say on the subject.
The Greenville Mountaineer learns from Ex
'overnor Perry, now in Washington, that there
was an under-current at work which wrs crumn

t- absolutelv-necessary that all con-r cts be .iade
ad in duplicate, and unless approved by an officer or
agent of this Bureau, will be considered null and
void. In the absence of the civil courts, you
may depend on the protection of the military.
ed No partiality will be shown to freed persons, or
:a- the contrary. Our chief aim will be juxtice. Let
)r- us adopt the immortal cree, "with malice to
wards none and charity for all," and strive earn
estly to establish peace and good will, and re
n- cognizing the rights of all mien, do what we can
en to inaugurate for our country a fairer future of
., happiness and prosperitv.
it is hereby announced that al freedmen fonnd
idle or vagrant on the streets of this city, in tNe
country-in fact, anywhere within the limits of
th the District of Western South Carolina-after
n. the first of March next., will subject themselves
a to arrest, and be comp-led to work on Govern
ment plantations, for the support of the aged and
nd infirm freed persons in my charge.
er And now I cheerfully add a word of encournge
he ment to those who have so willingly gone to work.
as This gives me great satisfaction. You have many
as enemies-many detrActors. Heed them nor, but
ld work, ivork, work. "Labor and wai,"aud all will
vet. be well. Do all you chn to procure a large
crop. Great inducements-splendid opportuni
k ties-are offered you. Then go, plough and
ds plant, dig and hoe, c-it and gather in the harvest.
rLet it be seen that where im .larcry there was
r raised a blade of corn or a pound of cotton, in
urfreeom there will betwo
Be peaceful and honest-failschood and thrIft
should not be found in freedom. In a word be
men ! Keep in good faith all yonr contracts and
e' agreements, remembering always th'at- you are
eir slaves no'longer. While guaxrding ca'reTupy your
Veown rights, bie as careful not to tiolate the righis
