Gen. Sickles vs. Whiskey.
The distillation or manufacture of
Whiskey or other spirits from grain, by
the timely order of Gen. Sickles, is pro
hibited in this Military District, and the
possession of a still or other apparatus

sumptive evidence of a violation of the
Revenue Laws, and the party or parties
using the same or on whoso premises
they may be found, will be held triable
by a Military Commission for misde
meanor. All tronps of the United States,
Magistrates, Sheriffs and other civil

violation of this order.
Public Me6ting at Camden.
The Camden Journal contains a notice
of a public meeting held at Camden, on
Saturday, the 18th inst., by invitation of
h portion of the colored people of that
town. The meeting was addressed by
the Hon. James Chesnut, Gen. J. B. Ker
shaw, and Gen. Jno. D. Ke:nedy. These
gentlemen all took the same ground, and
their speeches were replete with good ad
vice to their colored friends. They con
ceded to them the rights and pri%iieges
which had been conferred upon them by
the kietneasures of Congress, and urged
them to exercise them with caution, so
that their mutual interests might be pro
These gentlemen were followed by sev
eral colored speakers, amongst them,
Rev. Ben. Lawson, whose speech the
Journal says, was "characterized by
strong sense, excellent feeling, good taste
and judgment, and great originality and
humor." lie said that he trusted them
(the white people) and would labor with
them to promote harmony a'nd good feel
ing, and raise up South Carolina from the
dust, make her fields teem with corn,
cotton and rice, and cause her to bloom
and prosper." We wish we had space
to publish these proceedings.
A Suggestion-Help your Neighbors.
It has been suggested to us that we
make a public appeal to the citizens of
this district, and urge upon them the ne
cessity of a regular and systematic ad
ministering of contributions of food to
the sudering ones in this district, that
all who really need mfay receira aidl, and
that the burden fall not on a few. The
suggestion is, tbat in each neighborhood,
say in a comp~ass of five miles, all the
families meet together and form them
selves into a society, whose duty it should
be to ascertain who the needy arc and
tbeir number, and that each member con
tribute of his or her means, a proportion
each month of a sufficient qnantity to
sustain their poor and hungry neighbors,
taking receipts for the rame, to be exhib
ited at each ineeting. We believe tae
plyi to be a good one, aind unless a better
be presented, earnestly urge its adoption.
Any plan looking to the amelioration of
the destitute can not he otherwise than
good, but unless a regular system be pur
sued it is liable to work to the disadvan
tage of some. One or two bushels of
corn per month from each neighbor, will
in most cases be amply sufficient, and
will not be missed by them. We can not
but believe that the supplies sent through
public channels, fail to reach all the points
intended, though su@cient to cover all
cases. Let the district by all means take
care of its own poor. A public meeting
might be held preparatory to, or for the
purpose of organizing neighborhood so
cieties. We trust that the suggestion
may be acted on.
Gen Wagener's Address,
Delivered at Darlington, upor the sub

prehensive paper, and contains sonme in
teresting statements on the subject of
manufacturing, it concludes with a

it entire at an early day.
The initiail steps in the scheme of im
migration are the imost di cult. Our
people must not be too anxious to realize
immediate profits anj personal interests,
but rather work for general and ultimate
good, by offering inducemie:ts for imi
gration; good wages, good for, &c., to
laborers, and cheap lands to; purchasers.
Once the tide turns South, it w,ill con
tinue, for the first settlers becomning sat

tves after them. Without a system of
ilabor we are undone. In order to estab

Wagener truly observes that the Germar

The State must foster immigration and
the industrial pursuits, and supply her
self with manufactured goods ; also horses'
sheen, swine, provisions, &c. Now is
the time to move in the matter, and form
district associations. The State can be
made truly prosperous under healthful
systems of labor.

[For the Herald.
Ma. ETon: The journalists who have
commented on the letters of Gov. Perry
have treated him with great tenderness.
While condemning his policy, his sentiments
and honesty, and we believe his consist
ency, too, have been much applauded. He
is presented as a model of the virtues of the
statesman, without the policy of a states
man. Well ! to this we do not object.
We like fair criticism,-would rather praise
than blame, and we abhor abuse, even in a
newspaper. Dut pray what has Gov. Perry's
patriotism, consistencv, or even sentiments
however lofty, to do with the question which
evoked these epistles from his scornful pen ?
Patriotis:n without discretion, sentiments
wi:hou: sense, and consistency without rea
son, would be very poor guides in these
sad, di:jointed :imes. Out of these qualities
you might man'iacture a political zealot,
but not a statesman. We have no doubt
that Gov. Perry loves his country
nor do we distrust his fidelity to the Union.
That has been the great ofject of his wor
ship through life, and I suppose that he will
prove true to it to the last
"As the sun-flower turns to her God when
The same look whi(h she t:rned when he
The late Provisional Governor's love of
the Union, in days gone by, amounted to a
passion. We well remember that the feel
ings of joy which were exhibited at his
gi:ing in his adhesion to the cause of the
late Confedgracv, were exceeded only by
the surprise which some felt that he should
have taken that step. His was considered
a most important accession to the secession
ranks, not because of any high esteem of
his l'olitical knowledge or statesmanship
which prevailed, but because he was believed
to be an honest, but, before that time, mis
guided patriot, and that having been the
most prominent Union man in the State,
his influence would tend to reconcile his
party to the policy which the State had
adopted. Hence it was also that he was so
much honored ;-his antecedents were
known far and wide,-his claims were rec
ognized at Pchmionrl.' He became the re
cipient of Executive patronage, the two
highest appoin'ments in the State which
the President had the power to make.
When he was invested with the robes of
office, little did tha country or the Governor
imagine tl at Davis was putting on him the
shirt of Ne sv. The Confederacy in those
days was looked upon as a fixed fact, not
as now, a bubble bursted. Any one even
an old Union man,-a modest man, could
then afford to take office. We had r.ot
then reached the point where Go'-. Perry told
the lamented Gov. .',Ians the State was go
ing-we had not then "got to the devil."
But things have turned out diff'erently from
sybat was then expected. The ,Governor,
however, has got on the fatal tuuie ; and by
the way, the part he is acting under it,
bears a striking resemblance to the conduct
of Hercule5, who, when lhe discovered that
the fatal poison was penetrating his bones,
laid down on his Nemnien lion skin and nide
a funeral pyre of himself.
It is hard, we .admit, for the Governor to
be thus overtki, and so soon, tool a fter he
had descended from the high place he la te
ly filled under the "second Washington," to
be translated to a still higher position by
the provisional legislature of 186~5, to fill
with Mr. Campbell, in the U. S. Senate, the
seats in which Calhoan and Mc Duffie once
After liaving been a Union mian alhl his
life, and w.th this prospect ahead, to be
visited with the terrible consequences of a
few short years of political sin, falls very
heavily upon the Governor. In all candor
we must say, that he is entitled to our
warmest, tenderest sympathies. These re
flections, with the thoughts of the future of
our beloved State which trouble his mind,
are sufficient to arouse all the latent feelings
of indignation which he has lately ventilated
through the press. No wonder that his
feelings of patriotism mingled with "that
high disdain from sence of injured merit,"
should prompt him to give utterance to the
language of passion and invective against
those who are responsible for the present
state of political affairs, that they should
dictate the fine sentiments for which his
letters have been commended.
But this is not what we want to hear
from political leaders. It -is no advantage
to us to be told that Gov. Perry prophesied
evil to co Y'ns ye'ars ago, and that that
prophecy has been fulfilled, or is about to
be ~futif!ed. The gift o4 prophecy,--real
propl ecy, such as Isaiah and Elhjah possessed,
is a very exalted attribu:e. But their maa
tIe has "not come down to our times. There
are however in every community, and at
all times, would-be-prophets, and they gene
rally prophesy evil ; and if it does not come
to pass, they are in the humor that Jonah was
when he ascended the hill to see the destruc
tion of Nineveh b)ut was dissappointed.
Thie seems to Ie natural with a prephet-hie
wishes his prophecies to be fulfilled, whether
they be of good or e' il-and when the
event comes, he
"Nods his wis2 head, and ci ies,-I told you so.~
We have no doubt that this prophecy of
Gov. Perry which is now held up to the
State in their desolation and sorrow, as an
evidence of I is fir-seeing sagacity and
politie s wisdom, was made- by thousands,
both North and South, but of course chiefly
by those who hoped to see that calamity
befall us. It would simply be a vain conceit
to base a claitm of merit upon so weak a
foundation as this. One who was in favor
of the UnTion1 at aill haz.2rds and to the last
extremity : who believed that secession was
not only a delusion but a crime, if he had
kept his faith after fighting the good fight,
he might be excused for manifesting feelings
of pride at seeing his prophecy of evil ful
filled. But for one, who can say of the late
revolution, "muagna pars fui ;" who had
staked his all upon the issue,-upon the
experiment of secession ;after its failure, to
cry otut "I t(id you so," to remind us of a
prophecy tmade years ago, that "the State
was going to the dlevil," if it be not very
won~g, is in cur humnble judgm;ent, in exceed
ing bad taste. And bes'des, what is still
more un ;inmd, if not rude and supercilious,
in Gov. Perry, he thanks his God that lie
and his brothe:- union men are not as other
men are; not as secessionists are, those who
advise acquiesence, or submission, if the
Gcv. prefers that word, to the tertms of re
construction, those "who (he says) are now
urging the people to voluntarily swallow
the Military Bill, tezardless of honor. prin

arrogance, and egotism as are displayed in
these let.rers, are rarely to be met with.

creek, where it runs through the railroad
embankment, and was there spouting its
last, but on rushing to the spot it was
ascertained to be the engine of the Lau
rens railroad, which had at last made a
run through. Its terrible wbistling was
excusable therefore, after so long a si
lence. We trust however that it will
use more moderation in future, as the fact
of its safe passage through is already
known and recognized, and the hope en
tertained that regular trips will now be
made between this town and Laurens.
