Bill Arp-tohis Constituents.
IltspektaMtfjPeopte: I address you on this
ok;:rashun-\\dth a profound admiration for
the greak-eonsideration and the nice dis?
crimination which caused you to honor
i ma iry-your votes with a seat in the Sin
Jsftte of Georgy. For two momentan, atfd
^aspirin weeks, the Legislature hav been
-in solera session, one of -whom I am
pr^ud to be whioh. For several days we
weraengaged as skouts, raakin a sorter
T*J:onysaneeitO'Soe whether Georgy were
a-?fcate-or a -Injun Terrytory?whether
w* were in. the old TJn-ion or out of ik?
whether me'and my fokeB, and you and
yfl^irfbfee8,'"were somebody or nobody;
and JastLy,. though by no means 1 easily,
wl ether our poor innocent children, boru
durin the war, were all illegal an'd ha'd to
be born over agin or not. This last pint
ar>3 much unsettled, but our -women are
advised to be kalrn and sereen.
My friends, our aim hav honestly been
to git you all baok .into the folds of the
gloryous old TJn-ion. Like the prodygal
- sou, we hsd nuthin to live on, and feelin
lonesome and hungry, hav been bowin
mad scrapinjind cmkin apologys for five
or six months. We hav been standin,
afar elf for weeks and weeks, but durn
thecaf do they kill for us. They know
we've got notbin, for they eat up our .iub
etance, and as for puttin rings on our fin
fers, we couldent expekt it until they
ring back the jewelry they earryed
? away. I cannot say, in the jangwidgo
of the poet, that our labor hav beeiut la?
bor of love, for we'vo had monstrous poor
encouragement to be shore; but we had
all-set our heads towards' the stars and
stripes, and' >wo jintiy determined that
come wool-come wo, sink or swim, sur
vivo or perdsh, .thunder or litein, we'd
slip back, or sneak back, or git back
. somehow or somehow else, or we,d stay
out forever and ever amen and be hanged j
to em, so called, I golly,
Up to this time it hav been an up hill
bisiness. The team was a good ono, and
the. gear all sound and the wagin greased,
hat the'road are perhaps the ruflest, rot
tenest cordyroy in the world. It's pull
up and skotch, and pull up and skotch,
sbd ever and anonym us the skotch slips
out and the tung cuts round and away
we go into tho gully. Andy Jonsin is the
driver, and he says "Go slow," and he
hollers "Wo.! wo!" and loses the road,
and then-wo have to go back to the fork
and wart till ho blazes tho way. He
seems to be .d?in bis best, but then thar
is Sarnner and Satan and Stevens and
Davis and -other like gentlemen, who
keep tholierin at him and crackin his
wb"rp,.-and confasin his idees, so that some?
times we don^t know whether he's gee-in
or haw-in. My friends, about them fel
* lars, I don't know what I ort to say. , If
you dctj or if anybody else does, I wish
they would say it. , I don't encourage
enssin in nobody, not at all. but if you
kaow of a man that can't be broke of it
xlarin hisnateral life, it mout bo well to
hire him by the year. If th?r is in all
history a g?od exkuse, and a proper sub
jek, it is upon ibem. hartless, soulless,
boweWess, gizzardloss, fratrisidei, parasi
dal, sistersidol, abominabul, con temp tibul,
disgiustabaliudividuals. I sometimes think
of em till ray brain gits sorter addled,
and I fool like becumin a volunteer eon
vikt of tie Lunatik Asylorum:
Charity iodines me to the opinyun that
cldSumnor are crazy. I think he has
been gittin worse ever since ho took
Brooks on the brain, and it do seem like
the disease have prooved contagus. If
thoy be for Peace, it must bo the Peace
that passoth all understands, for we can't
. fathom it in these regions. They Tout us
to free tke poor nigger but dident keer
for the Union. The "Western boys font
ns for the Union but didont keer tor the
nigger. By double toamin on us they
licked us and we gin it up, but now the
one dont want our niggers and tho other
dont want our Union,"and its the hard?
est skedule to pleas em both that a poor
TAnishod peopul evor undortook. Its the
most hardest war to wind up that history
rekords. Sumner, Satin and Company i
are still a iussin and fuming about -the:
everlastin nigger?want him to vote and ]
make laws, and squat on a jewry, and
want to perhibit us, tho rebels, from doin
the same thing for 30 years to cum I Je?
rusalem ! where is the cussin man ? Thoy
say its all right for a nigger not to vote
in Connecticut, bekans* there aint but a
few of em thar;-and its all wrong for em
not to voto in Georgy bekaus theros a
heap of em here, and\tboy talk Logik
and Rotorik amazin to prove how it is.
Well I haint got a whole passel of sense
like sum, but as shore as I'm two foot
high, a nigger is a nigger, I" dont keer
whar you smell him, and a vote is a vote
I don't keer whar you drap iL I golly!
they cant git over that.
The truth is, my teller-citizens, I some?
times feel like wo dident hav no govern?
ment. I felt that way sorter when Mr.
Gibson appinted me a committeo on the
gtato of the Republik. When the Sokre
tary road out my namo all mixed up with
the Republik, I felt that I was obleeged
to renig. Risin magestikully to my feet,
says I, "Mr. President I beg to be re
?nektybly exkused sur, if you pleaso. If
thar is any Republik on this side of Jor
din I cant purseve it at this time with
'these speks. Thar was a place in old
"Virginny called Port Republik, but Mr.
Rebel General Stonewall Jackson wiped
out its contents generally in 1863, and I
havent sinse heard of it in Northern lit?
erature. I have heard of a skrub consarn
over about Washington they call a Ro
publik, but, sur, it are likely to prove the
grandest, imposture that ever existed on
a continent of freedom. I suppose, sur,
it are to be moved to Boston or tho infer?
nal regions in a few days and I want
nuthin to do with it. Exkuse me, sur,
but I must insist on bein rospektably dis?
I took my seat amid the most profoun
dest and tumultuous silence over seed, and
Mr. Gibson remarked that ho . woudent
impose the Republick on no respektable
man agin his wishes. Ho then transferd
me to the Finants Committee, and sed he
hoped we would take immediate action,
for the State had no money, as well us
himself, and board was high and eat
setaras frequent. This may not hav been
his exaktual' langwidgo, but is anglin to?
ward it. Ibowd my head and said "Ditto,
exsep that I don't eat soteras." Forth?
with I telegrafd varyous gentlemen for a
temporary loan, but they wouldent lend a
for they wanted Iiis namo to the note.?
Think, says I, there's a tap lost about the
wagin.. If we are a State, we can borry
money in Augusty. If we ainta.Sfcate,
?its none of our business to borry it all.
If Andy wants to run tho machine his
own way, let him pay his own expenses.
?What in tho dickens is a Provisional
Government for, if it ain't to get up pro?
visions and provide for a feller generally ?
I made up my mind that perhaps wo had
been humorin Andy about long enuf. Wc
had as much right to a Govenor as Ala?
bama or South Carolina. He wants us
back about as bad as we want to get back,
and a little badder, perhaps! and he
neodent put on many unnessessary airs
about this Senator businoss. If he fools
with us much we won't elect nobody?I
golly! we'll take the studs and go back
?wards. I forthwith returned to the Capi?

sesl, " Mr. Gibson, sur?I'm your friend

were tslegrafd to Washington before the
ink was dry, and wereceeved ordors.forth

we voted ourselves1 a pocketful apiece, and

In tho House, Mr. Williams, of Penn?

which was adopted:
Resolved, That in order to maintain na?
tional authority, and protect tho loyal
citizens of seceding States, the military
forces of the Government be not with?
drawn from suoh States while Congress
declares their presence necessary.
Latham, of West Virginia, made a
speech, arguing that rebellion was limited
by State laws.
Washington, January 9.?The Secre?
tary of tho Treasury communicated to
Congress, to-day, the statements of the
Internal Revenue officer of the Third
District of Georgia, earnestly requesting
a modification of the test-oath, and setting
forth tho great difficulty existing under
its provisions of securing proper assis?
tance to transact tho business of the de?
partment in that section.
Gen. Howard, of the Frecdman's Bu?

former owners whon pai-doned, the ten?

The Joint Committeo to prepare testi?
monials of respect to the memory of tho
late Mr. Lincoln, have requested Governor
Bancroft to deliver an address.
The President transmitted a report to
the House of Representatives, to-day, in
response to the resolution of that body re?
lating to Mexican affairs. It embraces
much diplomatic correspondence on tho
subject, and is-raainly to tho effect that;
t here is an indisposition on the part of the
United States to recognizo any other Gov?
ernment in Mexico except that of the re?
public presided over by Juarez, with whom
we have so long been on terms of amity.
Senator Sumner offered a resolution to
prevent freodmen from being kidnapped
and carried to Cuba and Brazil, there to
bo held in a State of slavery. He read
letters from persons from all sections,
sttiting that this was being done, and he
I'cmarked that Federal officers were among
tho guilty parties. He moved that tho
Committee on tho Judiciary be directed to
inquire whether further legislation was
necessary to prevent the revival of the
Davis of Kentucky,, remarked that he
had no doubt the Yankees were re-cpen

In the House, Yoorhccs, of Jndjana,
made a speech endorsing the President's
policy of restoration, and combatting the
doctrino of Stevens, that the Southern
States had ceased to exist. He contended
that the war having ceased, obedience to
the law was tho only necessary guaranty
to representation, and in conclusion ex?
pressed himself opposed to tho division of
protection to domostic manufactures.
Bingham replied to Yoorhees. Ho de?
clined to concur in sentiments which kept
tho rebellion alive. He had ascertained
that the President was in accord with Con?
gress, and he protested against the dogma
that States that were out of the Union
would require representations for their
Shellabarger, of Ohio, argued that those
States by disobedience to established laws
had placed themselves outside the Union.
Washington, January 11.?In the U.
S. Senate Mr. Johnson, of Maryland, made
a speech denying that. Congress has tho
power to declare against tho States; it
could suppress insurrection but conld not
held the South as conquered territory.
In the United States House of Repre?
sentatives, Mr. Rogers made a speech
against negro suffrage in the District of
Columbia, and Mr. Farnsworth,, one in
favor of the bill, saying that impartial
suffrage was the only guarantee to secure
a proper state of affairs in the South.

THE CHARLESTON DAILY HEWS.
It is with pleasure that ire note the enlargement
and improvement of this sterling amd excellent
journal. The proprietors, Messrs. Cathcaet, Mo
Mill.v:; and Morton, have received an extensive
patronage, and seem determined to prove worthy
of its continuance. The New? is emphatically one
of the best papers now published in the South.?
Its editorials are able, dignified and searching,
while the utmost activity is exercised in furnishing
the latest intelligence froicraTl quarters of the globe.
THE GREENVILLE MOUNTAINEER.
Wc observe that Col. G. F. Townes has become
associated with G. E. Elford, Esq., in the editorial
conduct of this sprightly and interesting-sheet.?'
The well-known literary attainments of Colonel
Townes-, and his former experience in the harness,
are ample guarantees that the accession of his:pen
will increase the popularity and usefulness of the
Mountaineer. The proprietor announces the inten?
tion of enlarging the Bemi-weekly and also the
issuing of a large weekly paper in a short time.?
We wish him abundant success.
We learn that Messrs. J. C. Ktrs, F. G. Stow

raigned in October last, charged with the murder
of three Federal soldiers at Brown's Ferry, on Sa?

tary Commission in Charleston. The trial was to
commence on Monday last. The case has been one
of unusual interest to our people generally, from
tho beginning, and the result will bo anxiously
awaited. trust , and believe it will not be long,
until the accused are welcomed back to home and

is good, but then there is so much of tho unappre
ciative element to contend against that one grows
The above is an extract from a private letter re?
ceived from an old friend and experienced caterer
for the public mind, and its truthfulness has im?
pressed us so strongly that we make use of the
sententious sentence as a text for this article.?'
Every one connected with journalism ?t this time,
(in the country, at least,) will regard the uttcranco
as forcible and pertinent. Prior to the war, tho
fraternity were imposed upen sufficiently to war?
rant a change with the new era which has lately
begun; and we presume that our friend has at?
tempted the enforcement of a reform in the con?
duct of his paper and mot little or no encourage?
ment from those who ought to sustain his efforts
to break down the credit system, so ruinous to the
patronage and permanence of country papers.?
The newspaper is certainly of great value to a com?
munity, else why should subscribers seem anxious
to receive the dispensation of its light and infor?
mation. If, therefore, it proves valuable, there
can be no good reason for withholding the small
pittance required to secure its regular visit. With
the changed condition of affairs, it is impossible to
obtain the actual necessaries of life upon the faith
of prospective payment, and we have often been
amazed that honest, worthy men should postpone
the payment of subscriptions promptly. If you
will indulge in the-reception of the newspaper as a
luxury, pay for it in advance, and then renew the
subscription at the expiration of the time. But
the paper is not a luxury?it is a matter of dire
necessity, and should be so regarded by all, espe?
cially heads of families. Where can children ob?
tain knowledge, useful and practical, so cheaply ?
But the thirst for news is far greater than before
the war, and the middle-pged and old people must
be apprised of the current information of the day.
Through no other channel' can this como but the
newspaper, and it is folly in the extreme to expect
one to devote time and energies for naught. The
editor is illy recompensed at best, but this cannot
be demonstrated to those who think it an easy mat?
ter to print, write, think, study and devise enter?
tainment for the public. Cease grumbling, then,
that the fraternity have engrafted upon the new
order of affairs the resolution to be recompensed for
their labors, in order to live with comfort and pre?
vent tho approach of starvation to their doors.
But in addition to want o f appreciation among
subscribers?or a portion, wc should say, for all
honor to those who think and act differently?the
advertisers arc not exempt from the contagious ele?
ment referred to. Every man now-a-days, with
few and raro exceptions, who seuds in a card, how?
ever brief and insignificant, expects tho editor to
puff him to the skies for his BUpcr-excellcnt supe?
riority over '* any other man " in that particular
line, while his neighbor in the identical same bu?
siness occupies ten times the space and conse?
quently pays ton times the amount accruing from
the aforesaid card?and in all probability, the
largest advertiser has all the advantage of stock,
materials, or whatsoever else is ventilated before
tho public. And then the growling and snuffing
that is done when the bill is presented! It is
enough to task the patience of a second Job, to say
nothing of tho temper of an ordinary man. No
wonder that our friend "grows sick." One of the
canine species would feel nauseated with an en?
counter such as we have described, and I Ley are
by no means uncommon to the .experience of a
Compressing the entire subject in a nut-sheil
?when you subscribe to a newspaper, pay for it;
and when you hand in an advertisement, do like?
wise, and then you will not be frightened at the
horrible " duns" so frequently presented in print.
Neither will the editor "grow sick" nor weary in
the discharge of onerous duties, but with pleasure
and pride will he strive to enlarge the sphere of
his usefulness and confer more lasting benefits
Feace.?Months ago the declaration went forth
to the world that " white-winged Peace " had sup?
planted the ravages of warfare, 'and once again
reigned throughout this broad land. But turmoil
and strife upon tho battle-field have only been suc?
ceeded by disorder and unrest at home. The'bless

Death.?With sincere regret we record the death
of Capt. Keating L. Simons, which occurred at his
residence in this-viilage -on the 14th instant. His
health has been fccblo for'month's, and his vigor?
ous frame succumbed to the ravages of disease.?
For several years Capt. Simons held the position
of Commissary for the Confederate States at this
place, a/id was widely known among oifr.'peopre.
In the discharge of the delicate and dffficult duties
of office, he made numerous friends, who will now
deplore his untimely end. Courteous to all, affable
in his manners, and ever ready to relievo the un?
fortunate and distressed, Capt. Simons endeared
his name to many, and maintained a cordial and
friendly intercourse with the community at large.
He was a native of Charleston, but has resided in
Anderson since 18fi3. He leaves a large family to
mourn his loss. We beg to offer a heartfelt condo?
lence in this sad bereavement.
Atbocictjs Murdee.?Jt has never bten our
duty to record a more appalling and wilful murder
than that which occurred in this vicinity on Sat?
urday evening last. ?It seems that a.young man,
Albert Geeb, (son of Mr. David Gebe, Sr./) was
returning to his home from the village,-some three
miles distant, and.about dusk had reached Within;
four hundred yards of his father's house, when he
was brutally attacked by ono or more persons, a'hd
left in a mangled and insensible condition. Hear
ing cries of distress, Albert's mother wont in the
direction they indicated, and after a short while
elapsed, found the body of her son, horribly mu?
tilated. His skull was badly fractured in four
places, as if with a sharp instrument. Of course,
he remained insensible, and on Monday morning
breathed his last. No clue has been obtained as to
the provocation for this inhuman and brutal as?
sault, which ended the life of a peaceable, quiet
and inoffensive youth. The entire sympathy of
our community is with the aged parents in their
Two negroes have been arrested upon suspicion
for complicity in the murder, but as the matter will
undergo official investigation, we forbear comment.
Shooting.?It has 'been a common occurrence in
the last six months for an indiscriminate discharge
of fire-arms, night and day, to take place within
the incorporation. With some exceptions, this
shooting has been for no ostensible purpose. But
a case occurred the other night which is of more
significance than usual. A young friend of ours
was passing down Main street, and when opposite
the Market House, he was hailed by an unknown
person, and turning to answer the challenge to
halt, he was fired upon at once. The would-be as?
sassin immediately took to his heels, and our friend
discharged one shot, from the repeater he had in
readiness, but without effect it is supposed. This
incident is sufficient evidence to conclude that
there is a spirit of lawlessness and desperation rife
in the land, which renders unsafe the life of every
one. When will law and order assume reign over
the country, and chock the demoralization of the

THE WIDOW OF STONEWALL JACKSON.
It will surprise many to learn that the widow of
Stonewall Jacrsok is living in straitened cir?
cumstances. The New York Nctcs has made an
appeal to the people of the North for contributions
for the benefit of tho widow and child bf the Chris?
tian hero, who are said to be living upon an income
of one hundred and fifty dollars per year, derived
from the rent of their only property, a small house
in Lexington, Va., which the widow has not the
means to occupy herself, and which, it is feared,
will itself have to be sold to meet demands she
cannot avert. This, simple announcement is all
that*is necessary, wo should think, to secure a
handsome sum to relieve her present necessities,
and even to guard against similar evils in the fu?
ture. This work of gratitude and demonstration
of affection for the relict of our departed soldier,
should be liberally sustained in our own sunny
land. Impoverished though we may be, and de?
prived of property and comforts, let it not bo said
that the family of Stonewall Jackson suffered
want or deprivation amongst us, and that the as?
sistance of othera was necessary to prevent mis?
fortunes now im j ending. Surely each one will
contribute his mite to relievo the sorrowing and

The "B02WIE Bt?B Flag."?The following ex?
tract is from a speech delivered by the Hon. Alex.
White, in the Alabama State Convention:
The Bonnie Blue Flag no longer reflects tho
ught of the morning sunbeam, or kisses with its
sUken folds the gdhial breeze of our Southern
clime. The hands that waved it along the fiery
crust of a hundred battle-fields, anVi the hearts
that, for the love they bore it, so often defied dan?
ger and death, no longer rally around it. Another
banner waves in triumph over its closed and pros?
trate folds, but proud memories and glorious re?
collections cluster around it. Sir, I will refrain.
The South needs no eulogy. The faithful record
of her achievements will encircle her brow with
glory bright and enduring as the diadems that
crown the night of her cloudless skies. The
scenes of Marathon and Plata? have been re-enact?
ed in the New World without the benificent results
which flow from those battle-fields of freedom, and
our country lies prostrate at the feet of the con?
But, dearer to me is she in this honr of her hu?
miliation than was she fo the day and hour of her
pride'and power. Each blood-stained 'field, each
track of 'devastation, each new made grave of her
sons fallen in her defence, each mutilated form of
the Confederate soldier?her widow's tear, her or?
phan's cry?are but so many chords that bind me
to her in the midst of her desolation, and draw
my affections closer around my stricken country.
When Praise my'voice or lift my hand against her,'
may the thunder rive me where I stand. Though'
I be false in all else, I will be true to her. Though
all others may prove faithless, 1 will be faithful1
still. And when, in obedience to 'the great com?
mand, "Du3t to Dust," my heart shall return to
that earth from whence it sprung, it shall sink in-;
to her bosom with the proud conciousness that it
never knew one 'be?t not in unison with the hon?
or, the interests, the glory of my country.
