that now- matters were improving. He also ex

that if the idle and the loitering could be taken

Emigration to Mexico.
We publish in aiother column, for the infor
mation of our readers, an interesting letter from
M.Y. Niury on the suhject of emigration to
Mexico. He has received from Maximilian the
appointment of Imperial Commissioner of Imigra
tion, and this letter has been written for the
benefit of those in this country who desire to
remove to Yexico and enijoy the privileges ex
teded to-them under a decree of the E nperor.
The high character of the writer, and the oppor
unities which he has enjoyed of obtaining accurate
knowledge of the country, are a sufficient guaran
t of the truth of what he states in this letter.
We do not be:ieve that he would indulge in ex
aggeration on so important a sub;ject. - It will be
perceived that he recommends to tfiose wflo- de
-sire to seek their fortunes in this "land flowing1
with N!ilk and honey", to form associations or
opmpanies, and send ahead persons to make se
lections of lands, and coUecct all the information
necessary .o- the suc-cess of such an enterprise.
On so impor ant a mattgr every one must act on
his owzrgudgemnent. But if the Empire egi b
*regarded as permanently estailished, their is no
country under the sun more inviting, in every
-rspect to the Southerner who -de.sires to le'avee

DEATH oF TnE REV. STEPHE ELLIOTT.-Our
words of sorrow and regret have scarce been
spoken over the untimely death of the heroic
Gen. Elliott, when it becomes our duty to make
the painful announcement of the death of his
father, the RevStephen Elliott, who died in Beau
fort on the 1th of March, 1866, in the sixty
fourth year of his age, of a disease contracted in
accompanyhig to the grave the remains of the
son whenT he mour-ed so tenderly.
Mr. Elliott w! born at the beginning of the
present century, at Beaufort; took his degree at
Harvard University, and about 1832 received
holy orders in the Episcopal Church. His life
Was faiLly spent in doing bis Master's work.
At one time, be was, temporarily, Rector of St.
Peter's Church, in this city. le will be, how
ever, chiefiy remembered in the Church by
his untiring efforts to promote religion among
the, negroes. He declined, of his own choice,
the charge of any established church, and
from his own fortune built, in 184-, a large
church at Conbahee, intended exclusively for
the use of negroes, to whose religious ii.struction
he devoted himself assiduously. for many yetrs,
asking and looking for no reward but the "well
done" of Him whom he served.
Mr. Elliott served as Chaplain of the Beaufort
Artillery in the bombardment of Fort Beaure
gard in 1S61, and afterwards of the Post at Po
cotaligo. The last years of his 4ife were filled
with cares and troutle. He saw untimely grav-!s
closed over two bereved sons, and exile and spo
liation of property were heavy trials' of his old
1ge. But affliction and worldly losses never for a
moment lessened the equanimity which was the
i charm of his character; and his brave heart,
though bowed with trouble, was full of charity
I to mankind. We intrude for a moment upon
their sorrow, and express to his family and friends
the tender sympathy of this community in their
loss.- Charleston News.
THE CILD oF STONEWALL JAcKSo.-A f-ii
correspondent send4e Richmond (Va.) Exam
iner the following delicate pen and ink portrait
of the only living scion of the late Gen. T. J.
Jackson. She is evidently in love with her sub
j. ct :
"I had recently the pleasure of seeing the child.
of Stonewall Jackson. She. is a, bright little
cherub, about three years old, with fair hair, blue
eyes, and a complexion of mingled lilies and
roses-the lilies however, greatly predominating,
although, perhaps, she does not look very robust.
For the benifit of curious mothers I will describe
her dress: She wore a Marie Louise blue merino
trimmed now with black velvet ribbonj edged
with white. Her little cloth cloak was of a drab
color, ornamented with bands of silk and fancy
buttons. Her hat was of English straw, trirmed
with blue velvet and white feathers. A tippet,
and muff of ermine, completed the costume of
the little fairy, and she looked as any mother's
darling need look. She was borne in the arms
of a, colored nurse, of whom she seemed very
fond, and'to whom she was prattling with exu
beramnt gaiety. The dark eyed, sadlooking lady
who followed her, in widow's cap, and gar
deepest motraing, completed the petare of
shine and shadow."

Exaniner, may she live to pate to future
generations the litical blood immortal fa
AcQUIrED.-The case of the United States' vs.
Daniel ind R. Addison Jeffe'oat, which has exci
ted some int'erest for several weeks past, before
the miilit~ary commission, sitting in this city, has
been brought to a'llose by a judgment of "not
guilty," which finding has been approved by
Gen. Ames. The prisoners were defended by
Messrs. F. W. Fickling and J. D, Pope ; and was
prosecuted by Lieut. Crooks, acting as Judge
Advocate. The charge was, " the murder of a
per:on, whose name was unknown, wearing the
uniform ot a United' States soldier, some time
about the I8th gr 191h February, -1865, in Lex
ingtoni District, immediately after the.passing of
Gen. Shernian's army through that section.' The
justification pleaded by the prisoners appears to
have been of the. strongest kind, and the court
rendered a verdict of "justifiable homicide." It
afiords us great.pleasure to record this termina
tion of the case, as our community appeared to
be getting somewhat feverish, under the impres
sion that to ?>e "cJarged" before the commnis
sion, was certainly to be "condemned" to heavy
penalties and long imprisonment. The decision
in this case will be received with favor. It will
tend to dirabuse the public mind of this impres
ion, and to show that justice wilr be meted out
by the commission upon a fair case made. We
are informed by one of the counsel for the pris
oners, that the Judge Advocate conducted the
prosecution with courtesy, and presented the
case for the United States with skill and abi;ity.

"Standing to the right of the cabin, near the
fence that separates the negroes' garden fr-m the
house yard, was a creature of gigantic stature
and the most horrifying appearance. It was
nearly as high as the comb of the cabin, and had
a monstrous head, not dissimilar in shape to that
of an ape ; two short, rei'y white horns appeared
above each eye, its arms were' long, covered
with shaggy hair of an ashy hue, and terninated
with huge paws, not unlike those of a cat, and
armed with long and hooked claws. Its breast
was as large as that of a large sized ox. Its legs
resembled the front legs of a horse, only the
hoofs were cloven. It had a long tail, armed
with a dart-shaped horn, which it was continual.
ly switching about. . Its eye glowed liked two
living. coals.of fire, while from its nostrils were
'emitted sheets of bluish colored flamne, with a
hissing sou'nd,- like the hissing of a serpent, on1y
a thouisandifold louder. Its general~ color, save
its armsg asa-dull, din~gy breiwn."

The Marriage of Negroes-Orders from tLe Freed
Mention was made some days ago af an order
of General Howard's giving his subordinates di
rections relative to the marriage and divorce of
negroes. The following is the order in full:
BUREAU OF REFUGEES, FREEDMEN, AND
WASHINGTON, March.2, 1866.
Attention is called to paragraph eight of cicu
lar six, series 1865, from this office, with regard
to marriages. The Commissioner deemed those
regulations sufficient to enable the assistant corn
missioners to draw up more specific rules. The
Commissioner directs that each assistant commis
sioner consult the State laws with regard to the
marriage and divorce of white persons. and em
body them for the benefit of freedmen, so far as
this can be done in a circular.
It is desirable to frame such a system of mar
riage rules as would be approved by the State
authorities. It is, therefore advisable to procure
the formal approval of the Governor to your
circulars on this subject. The Commissioner
would simply suggest several points that require
immediate attention: 1st. Parties eliible to
marriage. 2d. Who shall grant certificates of
marriage. 3d. Parties authorized to solemnize
marriage. 4th. Dissolving marriages. 5th. Reg
istrv of marriages. 6th. Regulations with refer$
ence to persons who have lived to.,ether without
marriage. The greatest care must be taken to
instruct all the freed people as to what the law
demands of theni in regard to marriae- ; and all
clergymen and magistrates who are authorized
to give certificates or solemnize marriage, m11ust
be earnestly soli:ited to aid the bureau officers in
rectifying the existing evils on this subject.
The assistant commissioners will forward to
these headquarters a copy of their regulations
with reference to marriage, as soon as they sell
be drawn up, -for file in this office.

Major General, Commissioner.
THE PULPIT AND THE STUMP.-POlitiCS and
preaching do not thrive together. When parsons
turn politicians, and deliver stump speeches in
stead of sermons, they cannot expect. their con
gregations to grow in graca Some of the New
England preachers are learnng this to their cost.
The Indrpendent publishes-a letter from a clergy
man complkining that in Connecticut alone sev
enty pulpits are vacant-the reason assigned be
ing that in consequence of the abatement of in
terest on the subject of religion, congregations
cannot be induced tW contribute enough for the
support of ministers. The writer says:
B investigation, I find that the Congregational
clergymen in Connecticut are really being driven
from their-posts of usefulness by want. Over
one-ffth of all the pastors in the State were dis
missed during the past year, while only eleven
young men were ordained. In regard to sala
rie., I learn from the Minutes of the General As
sociation that three pastors have no pay; one
has $100 ; one, $300-; one, $300 ; nine have
$400 ; thirty-three,.p0 ; one hundred and four,
1000 ; forty, $1500; sixteen, $2000 ; four, $25
P0 ; And three, $3600 a year. That the average
sum paid to ministers in Windham County is
$653; in Tolland County, $728 ; Middlesex
County, $816; New London County, $848 ; Litch
field C ounty, $880 ;. Fairfield County, $10O44
Hartford County, $1064; New Haven County,
When we consider the present cost of living,
we ask-Gan our clergy men support -and endu~
cate tfieit families on these salaries ? They do
not. Many are in debt, in want, in distress, and
feel obliged oftentimes to resign and undertake
some of the many other fields of labor, ,whereby
they can bring support to their families.
The New York World adds :
From what we bear from other States, we pre
sume that there must be some three hundred s'a-'
cant pulpits in New England, while th&e are
probably some five hundr ed more where the par
sons make barley enough to kee,p soul and body
together. The same 'eak of intere3t asd absti
nence from church-going and church-supporting
is noticeable all over the North, especia1tvy,re
the influence of New England thought prevail
A REVEREND BL.ASPHDER.-The Washington
correspondent of the Cincinnati Enquirer, under
date February 21st, says:- "The prayers. of the
chaplain of the House, Mr. B3oyn ton, for the past
two days have been, curiosities in their way; not
exactly dictations to the Almighty, but rather
mild, insinuating suggestions and hints. Unfor
tunately, they were not noted down by the phono
graphic reporters. Certainly, Mr. Boynton ex
hibits 'eminent qualifications for preaching (or
ether praying) politics.' With upturned eyes and
clasped hands he sent up this morning the follow
ing petition to the Throne of Grace, as nearly as
I can recollect ; "We thank thee, oh God, that
the great issues of the day are assuming that form
that it is no longer a question of this party or that
party, but of 'who is on the Lord's side.' We
thank thee that Congress stands firmly united on
the right side. We thank thee that we are not as
other men; and, furthermore, we- thank thee
that other men are not as we are. "There is but
one:God, and Thad. Stevens is his prophet." Just
think of Thad. Stevens being God's Vicar on
earth, or of the Almighty being one of the rank
and file in a Radical caucus."
A Doctor Tournes writes a letter from the
town of Manabouah, on the Red Sea, to the edi

still far below the truth. We give the following

In view of the circumstances brought to our

Sr. PATRici.-The common belief that St.
Patrick, the patron Saint of "ould Ireland," on
the -17th of March, (his nativity,) turns over the
warm stone, signally failed on last Saturday. It
was the colder side instead of the warm that he
turned over, and the result unfortunately was a
cold snap, which we fear has seriously injured
the fruit crop. We have too much reverence for
his Saint-ship to censure him for so great a mis
take, or impute all the blame to him. Other in
fluences may have helped to bring about this re
sult; the Fenian interest perhaps may have had
much to do with it, and then the preparations
making all over the North for the celebration of
St. Patrick's day on a huge scale made the drink
ing of much "poteen"- a necessary consequence.
The natural and charitable inference is that the
whole party had "bricks in their hats" the night
before, and there being no moon to shed light,
it was impossible to tell which and of the stone
to take hold of.
ScKER.-AS a generality we abominate suck
rs, and the most of people will agree with us.
There are various kinds of suckers, the sap sucker,
hiskey sucker, the blood sucker or money suck.
er, for they are one and the same, and last but
not least the sucker which infests the printing
office. All unprejudiced minds must agree that
their portion will be unenviable, they must even
tually "naw upon a file and flee unto the mioun
tains%f Hepsidam, where the lion roareth and
the whang-doodle mourneth for their first born."
But there is another kind of sucker, it inhabits
the water, and fist.:d out and placed upon the
table is not a bad sucker to suck in, as we know,
for our friend Bauknight sent in a mess last week
which have been disposed of. Our thanks are
lue for the same.
If the author of thie following will give us his
name, or sh.6w himsezf, we guarantee to give him
such an advantageous offer as will at once make
i man of him for life. The squib was found on
sur table, it may have been wafted by the wind

or the benefit of our friend King-m.ore.

sagacious and reliable gentlemen -of that cit,-,
Ione whose interests are idenitified with it,and
whose name and high official -position, gives
weight to his judgments wherever they are
kinown. Our correspondent states that there is,
indeed, but little money in the city ; but adds;
"Everything here is becoming more hopeful eyery
day. The plante.rs are getting money -to plant
with by giving the capitalists a share of the crop.
