The Preuident and the Great Movement of thePeople.
The masses have commenced that great mvte
ment which is destined to sweep from our tracf<
all the dangerous facti6ns and elements that have
threatened to overwhelm the Constitution and
the catse of Republican libW . A leader has
Rppeared, who is not unknown, uctrivd, inexpe
rienced man-who is no mere adi?enturer, and
who is not lacking in nerve. That leader is An
drew Johnson, the President of the U,ited States.
He has flung his banner to the breeze, and on it
are inscribed the Constitution, the Uriion,- the
restoration of the Sotithern States and their rep.
resentation in Congress. Under this- leader, a
great revolution (peaceful in its charactei, w6
hope) commenced, when the bill extendfg the
powers of the Freedmen's Bureau was vetoed.
The great mat meeting held in Washington, on
Thursday, ina 3gurated the sublime conservative
popubtr mrvement that will confirm the incendi
ary Pennsylvania leader in the belief that he has
been struck by an "earthquake". At the ad
journment of the meeting the vast concourse,
proceeded to the President's mansion and were
addressed by the President. This great popular
movement has thus, in its incipiency, received
its inspirations and direction from the head of
.he nation. The President evidently feels that
the country is in danger-that the bold, bad
men v:ho are arrayed against it muEt be put
down, and that the extraordinary occasion de
mands that, passing over the ordinary ceremo
ials of official interchange, he s'all place him
sef in immediate communication with the people.
The sn'eecb dclivered by the President was even
nore devided thait any heretofore made by him.
He proclaimed his opinious and his pohey wi4h
ut reserve, and manifested a vigor, energy and
determination that will remind the country of
the stern chara teristics of old Hiekorv. He paid
his respects to some of the Jacobin leaders by
name, and denounced them with unmeasured se
verity-Suminer, Stevens and Wendell Phillips.
Re said that the Southern rebellion had been put
down, and that the rising re.-ellion in the North
must also be put down. He pledged himself reso
lutely to protect the people, the Constitution,and
the Union against all traitors.
A popular gathering was called, on the same
day, in the city of New York, to be addressed,
it is said, by Mr. Seward, Postmaster General
Denison, Hon. Mr. belany, o''Ohio; Hon. Green
Clay Smith, of Kentucky; Hon. U. J. Raymond,
of New York, and others. The long list of names
signed to the call is headed by the name of Wil
liam CuIlen Bryant. General Grant, it is said,
will manifest his approval of the n-eeting by his
resence. The ball is now in motion, and meet
ngs will, doubtless be held at all pro-ninent
oints throughout the North, with the object of
mstaining the President. It is gratifying tio ob
erve that the great movement thus inaugurated
s altogether free from a partisian ea-t amnd
harater. It is a movement of the people,
which, to be thorough and successful, must be
mhampered by old party differences or tram
W bether the South shall join actively in this
novement, or stand by a silent but profoundly
ntereted observer, will more clearly appear as
he movement progresses. For the present, at
east, her policy is that of modest, unobtrusive
;ilence. She should, however, keep her eyes
pen -;o passing events, and, if an opportunity for.
wiping the President offers, she should render
um all the assistance in her power.-Carleston
One of the incidents connected with the Sena
trial vote upon the Freedmen's Bureau Bill now
oing the rounds with infinite zeet. is the inter
st exhibiied by Senator Reverdy Johnson in
esponding .0 a telegram apprising him that the
ritical vote was immineut. The honorable
entleman was sojourning in Baltiarore at the
ime of his notificatior., but immediately put him
self en~ route for the capital on a locomotive and
ender, which performed the distance of forty
iles in forty-one minutes. Not one of the wadi
al phalanx could have guessed whent Mr. John
son entered the Senate chamber, with about
hirty minutes to spare, that he had takeui so ex
dierating a ride for she exipress purpose of con
ributing his very import.ant mite towards de
The radiea,la like the veto so well that they
are preparing for another. The negro suffr-age
al,.,passed by tbe House some time ago, was r
oted iu the Senate to-day without amendment,
wud tlie radicals intend to urge its immediate
pasage. The radicals may pass as many bills of
this kind as they please, but the President will
eto them as fast as they are laid before him.
A t the instigation of the radrcals, the flags on
the negro school-houses have becn draped in
rape to.day, as a symbol of mourning over the
efeat of the Freedmen's Bureau Bill
There seems to be no doubt that there will be
t speedy re-or-ganization olf the Cabinet,' in con
equence of the PresidenXs veto. Mr. Seward,
wo gentle!nen frotua Southern States, and either
everdy Johnson or Senator Cowan, of Penn
ylvania, will have seats in the new Cabinet.
How Tmses WoRic.-The veto of the Presi
ens is the absorbing subject of comment in
very section of the country ; and although pre
ited by some, a,d a&icipated by many, it has
allen with the sprprise, and something of the
efect, of a coup &c etat. In Congress the effect
wassunnng. Mr. Forney, ambitious, apparent
y, of being considered. the chief cook in the
kit-. hen oabinet, and who, agort time ago, pre
dicted that fhe President would not veto the
bill, now complain-' that t.he patriots of the coun
try should iave been kept inl ignorance of his
intentions. Mr. D olittle, who, though of the
Radical party, sustained the Weto, proposes to
obviate the President's objiections in another
bill. Mr. Stevens, goaded even heyond his con
stitutional phrenzy, purposes still to run the Con
gr-essional m:schine in the manufacture of more
bills, under the gag of the previous question;
without the hope, however, to -him or any of his
Radic-al associates, that they can be so manufac
tured as to receive the imprimatur of Executive
approval. In New York a salutz of a hundred
gus was fired in honor of the- ccasion ; and the
Rev. Henry Ward-Beecher, at the Gboper Insti
ute, in one of the convenient eccentricities of
his genius, appr ved the veto, denounced the
demands of further guarantees from the South,
ridiculed the idea th .t we loved them, or could
be expected to love them, as a condition >f resto
ration, and declared that having labored twenty
years for the abolition of slavery, be would now
labor twenty years longer, if necessary, to re
store the Union. T he World and News are 3u
bilant; the Times complacent ; and the Tribun-e,
too savage to be coherent.-harlestonl C'ourier.
NEW Yoar BaLs.-This winter has been the
witness to some of' the most magnificent and ex
travagant public festivities everseen, we suppose,
in the world. We bave never read of such in
anciets or modern times. Everything that
eius and art could devise to .promote senic
disphiy a.nd brilliancy was employed with the
most lavish expenditure. -We read the accounts
of them not without apprehension. Such excess
es have too ofte:i matrked the' eras. of great ca
lamities for mankind. -
One of these balls was a maskied affauir. The
maskers danced till 12 o'clock, and ihen dropped
their disguises-when lo and behold l the most
embarrasa.ng situations wer- developed. One
paper says a brother found himself making love
to his sister-a husband to a wife-and others

p ickagos, goods and letters of value are safely
dispatched from every point. A convenience of
this character has long been felt. The gente
m-nlv agents will please accept our thanks for
late favor rendered.
THE END OF THE REBELLIN.-There is a
significant paragraph in the speech of Mr. Seward,
Secretary of State, and that is in relation to the
forthcoming proclamation of President Joson,
announcing that the war was at an end, and that
the present Freedmen's Bureau bill woulJ .cease
one year after steb proclamation. The Richmond
Whig say- that upon the putting forth of such
a proclamation, martial law and military rule will
cease in these St.aes, the privilege of the writ of
haheas corpus will be restored, and the people
will be remitted to civil tribunals of their own
creation for the ascertainment and protec'ion of
their rights. This, for the reason that the law of
Congress authorizing the suspension of the privi
lege of that great writ, confers the power on the
President only "during the existing rebellion."
With the supremacy of civil authority once
more, and the privilege of self-government in all
State affairs again enjoyed by the people of the
South, the action of Thad. Stevens' Obstruction
Committee becomes a matter of comparatively
sligh t importance.
.We have other information, that as soon as
Texas, in her Convention, complies with the con
ditions of his restoration policy, he will issue his
proclamation to the effect above announced.
The South is just nOW the princIpal market for
Western produce. The Cincinnati Gazette, of
Thursday, says :
"Tbere is no longer room for complaint on the
score of railroad freights Eastward. The Penn
slvania Central knocked the rates to-day, on
fourth class, from seventy-five cents down to*
forty-five cent s per hundred pounds to New York.
Even at 'his reduced figure, there is very little
to be had. The fact is, the surplus produce in
this market is held to supply the Southern de
mand, which is growing much heavier than was
anticipated, and hence nr-ices are nearly as high
hers na in New Yor k. This is especi-illy true as
regards hog products. Tnlere a, therTo1'e, mut
litle Eastward bound freight 'to be had at anyI
price, and as the railroad. eompanies are having a
fir business in WestwardI freights, they prefe:

The cs.New Orleans correspon dent of the Cairo
Democrat says that on Friday evening week Mr.
John Overall was about :o give a lecture on the
Life and Character of the late General Stonewail
Jackson. There wats a large attendance, as the
proceeds were for the benefit of Mrs. Jackson
and children. A bout the time it was to co m
mence an ollicer ranking as Captain stepped up
and told him he could not deliver the address
without some severe restrictions in reference to
the General's campaigns. Mr. Overall declined
delivering it at all, and asked the Captain to
mount the stand and make his statement to the
audience. This he declined doing, and the mat
tr was compromised, that the Captain should
take i seat and report an'ything objectionable,
which he did. The address was de1ivered.
"FarisH" COs-ro!. RevDvE.-A correspondentI
of the Baltimore Gazette, writing from Pleasant
Hill, Alabama, says :
The free negroes of this& neighborhood have
already advanced in civilization by establishing
an "ism" of their osti in the way of religion, the
principal features of which are a plurality ot
fives, and the r evival of the Fetish custom of
dancing over the graves of their departed friends.
Also, what they term the "holy dance"~ is one of
the essential elements of' their worship on all oc
casions. You know my brother built a church
and hired a minister to instruct his negroes, but
he has had to discontiue his labor for the want
FnoM THE PAcwlo CoAs.-The winter on the
Pacific coast has been unusually severe. Comn
muniation'with Montano has been cut off by the
great d1epth of snow,'and it is said that 'two
hude ormons, on the way to that Territory,
are 1nown to have per'shed. Accounts from the
Northwest represent the season to be very severe
all through that section- Instances of entire
families freezing to death are recorded. One~
man perished within two rods of his house. Gen
eral Steele has been assigned to the command of
the Department of Colunithia. The Gold-diggiiig
excitement is ratring in British Columbia.
LauRss RAtua.-The Directors have under
ad.isement a proposi'tion made to them to lease
the road. It is said that the road will be leased
for twelve years, the lessee to give the directors
-five thousand dollars annually,- after the first
three years, and be compelled to run the road
regularly and turn.jt over at the end of the lease
to the company in good -repair. Everybody is
anxious that the road should he kept up, on any
terms. Without the Railroad, the town of Lau
rens will perish by decay and dilapidation.
Give us the road.-Laurensville Herald.
A Northern paper say a gentleman just re
turned from Richmond reports that the military
orders prohibiting the wearing of the gray,
adorned with Confederate buttons, in that city,
Iis being strictly carried out. One of' the weap
n carried .by the patrol is a formidable pair of
hears, which are brought into requisition when
ever any unreconstructed rebel in .gilt buttons
makes his appearance on the street.
SEZED.-We learn that seventy or eighty
bales of cotton, stored at .Pendleton, have been
seized by the Federal authorities. Much of it is
sea island, valued at from $1 to $2 per pound.
The Federals claim that it is "Confederate" cot
ton, whilst those who were in possession main
ti that it is private property.-Keowee Courier,
IGNoRANCE OF SCRWrlURE.-A Northern jour
nal says that the pastor of a fashionable city
church having spoken of Solomon's -Song as a
production of great genius and beauty, a gentle
man belonging to the church called during' the
week ait a leading music store to get a copy of
Comany -, 5th Regular Cavalry, commanded
by Serpant DonMlly, passed through Newberry
last Siday, en route to Auderson.. It was a fine
lookin;body, hands6mely mounted and equipped.
SA.-DAY.-tm dull trade of a week back
took alively and healthy turn on Monday last,
an unsual number of farming citizens being on
hand. We are pleased to see that there is a lit
tle rmaey still in circulation, and goods still in
demar. Sales at auction, comprised a variety
of proerty, mules, horses, furniture, cotton seed,
real eate, etc., at fair prices.
An pportunity not to be overlooked, and one
that w.l not be offered soon again is now pre
sentedn our advertising colums. Physicians,
druggits'and others can lay in a supply of drugs,
medices, instruments, etc, at the first and old
timje cat and carriage, by visiting the old stand
of Wi:iams & Perguson, Vollohon Row. This
stock rill certainly be closed out in this:way, and
at a sarinr to purchasers of from 50 to 100 per
SPRNG Tix's COMING.-The near approach of
this bautiful season, the advent or resurrec
tion a floral life and vegetation-when blue-birds
mate r.d lovt;rs hie them to their trysting, sur
round,d with "sunshine, beauty and song"--is
heraldd by several days of lovely weather. Sat
urdaylast was a charming day. A genial sun
diffusel its rays through a bright and balmy at
mosplLre : the gentle sighs of murmuring winds
were prfumed with the fragrance of early flow
ers ; ihile the first note of the mockbird's min
strelsylent a pathos to the hour. The sun went
down b glory and the twilight and the gloaming
were mrapturilng. Meanwhile the waning moon
uprose in beauty o'er the scene, inviting memo
ries of the happy past.
"Flasnd by the spirit of the genial year,
Now f-om the virgin's check a fresher bloom
Shoots, less and less, the live commotion iound;
Her lis blush deeper sweets; she breathes of
The slining moisture swells into her eyes,
in briuhter flow ; her wishing boson heaves
With palpitations wild; kind tumults seize
Her reins, and An her yielding soul is love."
THi CoscaT.-Prof. Schmitt's concert on
Wednesday night was a perfect success, and as
we hoped and predicted the court house was full,
rammed, with the fashion and intelligene of
Newberry, numerously besprinkled, (almost too
much so for comfort and quliet) with little dar
lings, sereral of whom thank heaven fell early in
the fight,and were carried off to dream of musi
al angels in the shape of the professor and as
sistants. Sweet little dears how they did appre
iate Ithose grand pieces from the old masters,
particularly the Aus der Jugendzeit Waltz, Ca
liph of Bagdad, &c. Verily, verily,, "music hathi
chaitms." 'But the little folks were not the whole
audince, the scientific handling of the 'bow' by
Prof. Schmitt and the splendid timing of Miss
Ana's exquisite accom.paniments charmed the
cultiated musical ear. The wonderful profieien
y of Miss Anna is a proud satisfaction to her
closing performance by the minstrels exceeded
anti'ptlon, it was capital; the amusing songs,
lively music and jokes of Bones, Pompey, John
son and company, gave everybody a side ache to
take home with them.
Concert No. 2, 'of the Minstrel Band was a
success, and came off with greatt edlaf. Bornes,
Popey and Johnson were, as usual, felicitous,
while the rest of the corps displayed great pro
iciency. The "ladieR" of the troupe were ex
ceedingly graceful, and lent th.eir- ch'arms with
beconing modesty. The orchestra performance
was 'all that could have been desired.
NOT fI THE BILL-The' side periurmances of
the Concert on Wednesday evening, not inchaded
in the programme should have a brief mention,
it would be a slight not to notice them. We al
lde particularly to the little boys the five, six
and seven year olds and upwards. What a rack
e, what an, we are almost tempted to say, infer
nal'din they kept up, squealing, mewing1 barking,
crowing, whistling, incessantly, continually, with
every other kind of noise known to the young
imps of mischief. And then that party immedi
ately round the door, a nice little "tea party" to
be sure, how entertaining they were. T&e per
formance would have been ta-ne, dull, but for
their loud eloquence. That portion of the audi
ence who sat up high un fortunately missed this
latter part, y bile those low down got considerably
more than the worth of their money.
It will be seen that Messrs. Pratt & Wilson
Bros., have established in the city of Charleston,
an Importing and Manufacturing Drug House,
and in bespeaking for their new entierpi hse, the
favorable consideration of the Druggists, Mer
chants and Pbysicians of thedSouth, they desire
to dirct the attention of the' public to the fol
lowing facts: .
1st. Their's is the only establishment of the
kind south of Philadelp .
2d. The proprietors are ihative Georgians, 'and
two of them well and widely known Chemists.
3d. They intend to build up in Charleston a
centre of trade in their line of business, where
Physicins and Druggists may supply themselves
with every article of a complete cuitfit ; Artiste
with the material for their various professions ;
and merchants and citizens generally, with all
those articles which legitimately belong to their
department of business.
4th. With their facilities for direct importa'
tion, and their arrangements in process of com
pletion for manufac'.uring and warehousing, they
are enabled to offer to the trade, rates wihich will
compare favorably-with New York prices ; and
Iare determined to make it to the initerest of all,
to trade with them rather than in the northert

quietly off, regretting his temerity in approacbing
so great a character. A lamentable mental bal.

ed how "to labor and to wait" on them, because I
they are perfeetly good for the small amount;
that the knowledge of their exceeding goodnest
and liberality will replenish the merchant's stock,

their oily promises will grease a pot of greens,
furnish a pone of bread, and find the baby in

nond's paper, the Times, says: The birth
day of Washington was fittingly chosen for
popular demonstrations in favur of the Union.
That in this city was triumphant That
at Washingtoo, equally entbusiastie, was
even more significant, for there the President
hinsell uttered "thcughts thit breathe and
words that brun." That ffortof wi.domand
patriotism will secure for hi:n the gratitude of I
his own country and the approbation- of the
world. When ihis wonderful spceh has been
attentively read and digested by the Ameri
can people, Pre,ident Johnson will. be as firm
ly established in tbeir confidence and affee
tions as the most popular of his predecesors;
The H-erald savs Andrew Johnson has taken
up the gauntlet which the Jacobins in Congress
have flung down. The "man att the other end-of
Ithe avenne" has shown his appreciation of Thai.
Stevens and his radical clique by the bold and
uncom promising nmanner in which he denounced
themi bv~name, in his speech in Washington, on
the 22d, as traitors and revolutionists, Hie took
plain issue with them in honest and ho nely
words. He stands for the Constitution and the
Union. His enemies he deolares, are working
ot another rebellion. The country, we opine
will sustain the President in this view. 'On thel
whole, President Johnson's speech is bold, manly
and outspoken. More hold than anything which
Mr-. Lincoln ever prounonceed, it is not less- redo
lent of wit. It is not as classical as Somner, as
ornate as Phillips, nor as evenly b-abaned in' its
sentences as Seward, but it posses the sterhug
qualities of franknees, tcouragme and' truth. It i-a,
in~ fact, a speech suited to the muau -and to the1
TheNew thus comments: The name-of Andrew
Johnson is upon thelips of the people in accentisof
delight and admiration. Never, perhaps, in thet
history of our country have the wjards of any one
man-sent such a 'thrill of hope and satisfaction
through the popblar heart as those brave' words
of deBance that the Pr' sident, on Thmsda.
flung in the teeth of the ra<dical conspirators.
The masses are quick to appreciate the merits of
an act of reat political aditdfienace,"and they
have, as if by instinet, measuredl the value of' the
old and det'ermined speech or their Chief Magis
trae. They recog ize in itoa promise ofkredeinp
tion from the tyranuy of faictioni and. fauatisis.

R xE CANcR:-Dr. Brandini ,inFloreDe4
has recently discovered~that citric acid will as
suage the violent pain which is the usual con
coitant of cancer. One of his patients, aged
seventy-one., at the Hospital of Santa -Maria della
Sala, was afflicted with cancer on- the tongue.
There -was no possibility of performing an opera
tion, the surface attacked being far too extenstve,
investing the base, the sub.lingual, and the sub
Imaxillary glaud.a. The poor inan, jn the mi.dst
of his torments, aske-l for a lemon, which was'
nothing very remarkable, as cancerous patients
generally have an ordinary liking for acids. But
the seat of the disorder being in the mouth, a
circmstar'ce was observed which might .other
wise have escaped attention--the juice of the
lemon diminished the pain.
NEWS FROM HoME.-The radicals in Washing
ton are hearing from home by -every mail, and
all they hear dieepens their conviction that they
have nmade a great 'aistake. The people elected
their represenAtives .on platforms that 'pledge
Ithem to support the President and his policy,
and not to follow the crazy lead of Thad].Stevens.
The people do not forget, and what the radicals
iow hear is the eomm- 'ement of a fire in the
rear that will grow fik - t every day till they ful
fil the pledges -in whica they wrere electe.
