Difulties BetWeen Returned Soldiers.
The Memphis Argus learns that a bit
ter animosity -exists between the people
up the Arkansas. Frequent alterca.
tions occur between those who served
in the Confedeiate army and .others
from 'the Union army, who regard each
other with malicious hatred. Some days
since, at Spades, a party of discharged
Union soldiers met a'number of paroled
Confederates, and after an angry dis.
cussion, a fight ensued, in which fire.
arms were freely used, resulting in kill.
ing four men.

Gov. PERRY AND HIs SPaxcn.-The

The f overnoar Perry's
speech has excited a storm
of indig tion on the part of
-the more re supporters Qf the
administa e Governor haa,
*however; rysatisfactory isnter
.views with the' President and most
niembers of the Cabinet. They express
great confidence in the loyaltyand pa
sriotismr of Governor Perry and believe
that he will administer the duties of bis
offiee with a loyal spirit, and with the
single desire to restore as speedily as
possible the blessings of assured peace
and constitutional loyal go'vernunent to
the people of that St. The explana
tions which Govoeor Perry has given
. of that speech,- and .the ciroumstanses
undekwhich it psdelivered, have
largely obviated th ttrnfavurable impres.
sios which abme pastage in it aare un
questionably calculated to convey.

Emton Nwe TIhe positidn is here.
in taken thet, so far from Wiing an as.
smed daten that the stop taken by the
South~n 47t61 has altogetherfiiled, ibis
an historical fact. This conceded, the
question is-what is to be done in the
premises ? Two things cannot be done.
Tha, Cl0r sL, Ohe exploded remedy must
not be repeated. The second is, alet.
alone policy, a political nonenity, should
not be tolerated. AOvioN, then, guided
by the new lights before us, must char.
acterize the body politic. To what end
shall this action be directed ? Evident.
ly, to securing .the best possible condi
tion attainable under the circumstances.
Cut loose as. it is from the iucubus of
slavery, and untrammelled by any pre
judice against interference with- that in
stitution, the political body South has
only to throw itself forward as a conser
vative constituent of the National body.
and it is bound to exert a high influence
in shaping the Government which is to
direct the machinery of the whole coun
try. This influence will be overwhelm
ing as soon as civil has superseded mili
tary rule, and. whining lethargy given
place to an eplightened and enlarged
comprohension of the true sitnation.
The former transition is now going on.
By all means push the latter forward
with all possible dispatch. The occa
sion calls for the help of all honest and
earnest hearts, and of all wise intelli
gences. - What boots it for a good and
worthy citizen to stand aloof; bcause
corrupt and dishonorable means-are used
for selfish political ends ? Would he
shut off a stream of pure water from a
burning house, because anotiler of filthy
water plays upon it ? How worse than
criminal would be such an act, were that
house his own. Just as culpable is the
man who withholds his precep and ex
r-pe whcn the mnost he can do is
to employ them for desirable good which
can be realized in no pther way.
But to come more directly to practi.
cal lessons. Soon a Convention of some
persons as citizens of South Carolina, is
to meet in Columbia, under the proclama
tion of the Provisional Governor. That
Convention will give character and
complexion to the future history of this
State, as no other can do. Its member.
must be men awake to realities, not
wild and chimerical dreamers. Too
much air has alrepdy been beaten in
empty - declamation. . Now is the time
to accept the teachings of experience,
and bend 'o the iron will of necessity.
Let it be clearly and distinctly announc
ed to the men who are to represent the
State, that their constitdents require
them to start at the starting point, and
not waste time in discussing what might
have been ; to deal with living facts,
nodissues. To qualiry him.

THE CRoPS IN TuE NonTu. WhsT.
Advicef that may be regarded as relia.
ble show the wheat crops in Southern
and Middle Illinois, Southern Indiana
and Kentucky, to be a failure. A few
weeks before harvest it promised a very
heavy yield, but subsequently it was
struck by rust, and the av'erage yield
in the sections of the country napied,
it is now estimated, will not reach over
eight or ton bushels to 'the acre. . This
has caused a very strong feeling in our
markets for flour and wheat, and~eonn.
try operators are already inivesting here,
on speculation. Outside of the sections
alluded to,. the damage has not been se
riou.s and front most places we hear
no general comaplaint, whil in niany
districts a very 'large yield has been
edeured. It is hardly safe, therefore,
togo in largely on a crop failure. Yt
seems probable that the foreign demand
will have more to do in fixing prices
than the crop failure. It is pretty cer
tain we shall, have a large surplus fosr
export, and the price obtainable for this
surplus will govern our markets. We
continue to rodeito vioot favorable re
ports of thcorn. crop. The "prospects
now are that the yield ill be very large.
