It was at first considered' objectionable
because of the, scarcity f provisions.

TiE MADNESS OF FANAT lSM.-The
negro is irrepressible. He cannot be
kept down. From the begii ning of our
history, he has been a disturb'xg element
in politics. The grand issueof the war
we have just seen closed, ce trod more
or less upon,hinm. But with lie end of
the armed struggle, new co plications
arige in which the inevitable nnd- irre
'pressille negro re-appears as their leading
character. Slavery has been practically
killed. An amendment to the Consti
tution, perfecting this policy, and giving
it the sanction of fundamental law, is far'
progressed tovard adoption by a reqiuisit
mnjority of States. Four years ago,
Wendell Pbillips in the wildest flights
of his fervid inaginattion, would not have
expected to see so much accomplished in
his lifetime. Probably the National
Anti-Slavery Society, at the '- ginnaing
of the war, would havq been rla4 to
compromise on the basis of uviat has
alrea<y been done, and solemnly agree
to agitate no more for a centtiry. -But
yet the radicals, not satisfied with the
liberation of thme, slaves, 'wish the blacks
who ivere lately sweating upon planta.
tions,*ivith scarcely an idea beyond Their
.diy's tiwk and their rations of hog and
hominy, to be given the ballot box; 6f
the uses of which they are as ignorant
as would be, a Fejee islander of- the
prindiples oVan electrical battery. And
when the right of suffrage is granted
if ever such evil a day should come, and
such a blot ever-be put upon our history
-rthe next step of these New England
derIlshes will-be to claim that the negr6
be- admitted to social equality, and tq
intermarry and 6esociate with thawhites.

blow my bugle for the charge. In
twenty milutes my men were over the
works, and the firing had ceased. The
citizens and Yankees had broken in, the
head of whisky and lager beer barrels,
and werb alf drunk. They kept up fir
ing all the time as rhey went dowq the
bill. Hundreds of thlrm rushed to' the
river and tried to swim to'the gunboats,
and my men shot them down. . The Mis
sissippi River was red with their blood
for three' hundred yards. During all
this, their flag was still flying, and I rush

and let it down and stopped the fight.
Many of the Yankees were in tents in
front, and they' were in their way, as
they concealed my men, and some of
them set them on fire. If they were bur.

"They have a living witness in Capt.

leave it to any prisoner I have ever
taken if I have nmt treated them well."

' Macon, it is stated, is nearly free from

compelled to seek ome other location.
The hiridreds of negroes who followed

A Southern journal estimates the loss on
account of the war to a single State as
Thie property, real and personal, in
eliuding slaves, held in South Carolina,
according 1, the census of 1860, was
valned at four hundred millions of dollars.
The bank, railroad.and other corporate
stocksland personal property pmounted to
as hundd millions, and of this property
harldy d vestge is left.- The four hundred
thousand slaves wore estimated to be
worth two hundred millions. The land,
embracing some fine)y improved and
'prodtictive cotton' and ice plantations,
with costly manions, was Worth dne
hundred million dollars; and hese are,
to a great extent, devastated by the war.
