A miuber of benevolent ladies of

th benelfit of impoveriihed Sotitherners,
'!'Th"rea o"evening. February 8t!k
gave a splemidl stipper, the procedds of
which are to be divide.d among the or

of South Catoiinla. It took place in
Forest II[all, ceorgetowp, which was
beautifilly decorated for the occasion
wit Ih evergreens and floweip, some of
the loveliest of t.he latter being a con
tributiouf from Mrs. Pattersbn, dauglttr
of the Presi(lent. Tihe mottoes. "Do
good -and forget not," antI "Feed my

greons, were displayed upIn the walls.
Eight tables laden with tilo tilost choice
enta4)les consisting of .cakes, fruits,
confectionary, ices, charlolte rousees,
blancmanges, jellies, oysters, game,
hams, salads, coffee and chocolate, were
calculated to satidv the most whimsical
taste. Matrons presided at theptables,
,while lovely young girls in dainty white
pinafores and'silver salvers in hand re
ipomided to the jmnenso throng. It
really seemed that evegybody was
there, including officers of the Federal
army, a few ex-Generals and Colonels of
the late Confederato army, numbers of
lower rank, and two.poor privates kn
their suits of gray. One of these laugh

Correspondence of the Phoenix.
W ASHINGTON, February-22, 1866.
It is difficult to describe the sensation
which the Prisident's veto of the Freed
man's Bureau bill pro-duced. The Re
publicans are frantjc with rage, while,
on the other hand, the conservatives are
jubilant. The breach between the Prmsi
dent and the Repilblican party is final
and complete. It c1tifot be patched up.
The gulf is too 4eep to be bridged over
by any kind of party arrangements. The
radieals pronoince the Pre.sdent a trai
tor, and they talk rfrel.y of im
preaching him. But (rom the vote in
the- enate on th'e vetdr it is apparent

great controversy betpeen tile Execu

most momen,tous questions thiatIhas ever
occurred ir0history. Its influienie on the
fate of the South will be immense. If
the radicals carry the day, military des
potism is made a perranent institutipn
at the South, and the whole power of
the Government will be exerted- to put
the colored race South above the *hite
race. - If the President succeed.,. (lion

ished.. In this contest, it is in the pow
er of the Sondh to strengthen ath-. 'resi

contest in his favor by wise line of con
duct. In order to know what the South
ought to do, it is orly necessarv .o ask
what the radicals watjt them to do, lin
order to beat the President down. They
want the South to treatthe free negroes
horribly, to show the moat hostile spirit
to the United States Government, and
to ill-tr(at, Northern men visiting 'the
South, and generally to show that they
are disposed to be.very ug1f. If the
South will th"a play into xhe hands of
the radicals, lien tih President will be
beaten to death.
