THURSDAY MORNING, AUGUST .*U,*18G5.
Fon some TiMK past ivc llave treated of the situ
ation; and ?is our attention lias been chk-ily ad
dressed lo th?! embarrassments experienced ami
indicated by the radical chango in our social con
dition, it is to In- confessed that our presentiments
of tho subject havo boon somewhat sombro. Cer
tainly they havo been less attractive than we
would have been pleased to make them?for opti
mism, if not always the most practical, is certainly
tho moat pleasant, philosophy cither to preach or
practice; and there arc, in fact, aspects of our
subject which aro susceptible of more favorable
To muko money, improve our circumstances,
purchase comforts, grasp the hand of friendship
at our hearths, and close tho door upon the blus
tering? of tho outsido world, is now, we believe,
the very common desire of everybody, and the op
portunities of doing this aro rcnlly greater than
thoy have over been, perhaps, at other periods of
our history. Hitherto wo have had few roads to
fortune, and those, only, who got the track, could
mako mach progress; but now there is the oppor
tunity, at least, for greater variety of enterprise.
In fact, it were hard to say what enterprise could
bo started now, without tho reasonable prospect of
Hucccss. Our country is in want of everything.
Labor, withdrawn from planting, will necessarily
bo abundant; living, in a short time, at least, vill
be cheap; tho business of farming will, doubtless,
oonstituto almost our only form of agricultural
pursuit, and will give us provisions in abundance.
The arts and handicrafts will, doubtless, take a
portion of our negro population ; the articles for
common uso will bo made here, without the costs
of importation; and thus, with abundant labor,
and cheap living, and a market for everything to
be made, at tho doors of tho factory or workshop,
it wore djfiioult to say what business there is, hi
which, if capital wcro invested, it would not be
It is true we arc not more encumbered with capi
tal thau with other goods, and directly, therefore,
tho suggestion will not bo of great interest to our
people. But the opportunity existing, capital will
como to it. There is an abundance of it in other
sections of the Uniou; liko other fluids it will ex
pand, and we have every confidence that in a racy
short timo wo will seo it in vigorous and successful
operation here. Tho men aro here upon the spot
who aro competent to determino when these op
portunities occur. Thoy are, so far, engaged only
in commercial and mercantile pursuits, b'i" they
are discriminaliug and alert. They know the con
ditions of success elsewhere, and when they see
them here they will seize tho occasion, and give us
not only the capital but tho energy and enterprise
that will afford assurauco of success.
Wo havo bocn so recently in contest with the
people of the North that there is, perhaps, some
sorcucss left, aud a disinclination to the thought
that we are to rely on them for the means to nia
tcriul advancement. But thoro is no doubt that
the present tendency upon their part to bury the
hatchet, to come among us, bring capital and en
terprise, look out for opportunity, and give stimu
lant generally to the paralyzed powers of tho coun
trj*will be of very great advantage. Ami we regard
tho occurrence hero as ono of the most fort?nate
circunialauces of our condition. By-goncs must be
by-gones. We have no longer a distinct social
system, and a peculiar policy to be preserved. Wo
must enter the race upon the great democratic
plane, and it will be of unquestionable advantage
to have other active men from other sections of
tho world to help us. It is in this way only that
wo can get a start. It is only from tho competi
tion of foreign capital that wo can find value in our
vested interests; that ?uir lands und other proper
ty will find a market; und it is greatly important
to tho business, and to tho comfort and subsist
ence even, of some of our pooplo that this proper
ty shall conic to market as soon as possible. Ilich
moml is far ahead of us. A large amount of for
eign enterprise and capital has already poured in
upon that place, and already their stores are filled
to tho utmost capacity, their streets aro crowded,
tho burnt district?almost as largo as ours?is be
ing rapidly built up, and real ??state commands a
higher price, at reut or sale, than it did before
To this result there is at least a tendency among
ourselves. There is already capital and eutcr
prisc. If our property wcro out of tho hands of
the Government there would be investments.
Already companies uro being formed for manufac
turing purposes. Wo hear of nn india-rubber
company, of companies for the manufacturo of
shoes, clothes, aud iuiplcmcuts of husbandry; and
it is believed that a paper manufactory for the
construction of that tissue from rice straw woidd
bo abundantly successful. Ryo straw at the
North?tho article moat extensively used for that
purposo?commanda a price of twenty dollars per
ton. Our rico straw has hitherto been OSOd sim
ply for manure. It is thought to be better even
than tho rye. We' have wood in abundance for
tho machinery} bark for the ashes necessary for
tho process; and it is scarcely possible,, thorpforn,
that tho enterprise, if properly undertaken, would
fail of tho most completo success.

lilis? li ir? oils K?i)iiM million, of South? in
Wo called at ton lion yesterday, in a leading edi
torial, to tho mischievous misreprcsonto tions of
tho New York Times concerning Southern senti
ment, and also published an article from that Jour
nal on the "Present Sentiments and Teachings of
tho Southern Loaders." That article states --that
public sentiment iu tho South is still as bitter and
unloyal as iu 1801;" "that they aro Btill truculent,
revengeful, and equal to any retaliatory action
that may promise success;" and it runs on writh a
long arraignment, including insincerity and per
fidy in taking the oath of allegiance, brutal cru
elty to helpless negroes, denunciation of the policy
of the Government, abu?o of Northern citizens,
and many other things, which, if behoved, tend to
make the Southern peoplo odious in tho eyes of
tho world. ......
Of course, among ourselves, wo knotf the
Marges to bo infamously false. But it is most
astonishing that the journal in question should
permit them to bo niado in a tono of bitter
invectivo, in the mo* conspicuous placo in
its columns. Such wholesai?. aspersions on tho
character, temper, and designs 0f tu0 gouth,
ought not to bo mudo except on ?trons-ovidonco*
but this article supports them by-none. Tfi?y &r?

only a few days since, a direct contradiction of
them camo from Washington, through the Asso
ciated Press dispatchos, and which, of course,
would not havo been sent had they not been in ac
cordanco with his views. From thoso dispatches
we tako the following sentences : " Tho Presidont,

The Times taha' up the calumnies on the South,
which nro branded at Washington us falsehoods
and exaggerations, puts apon them its indorse
ment, and gives them new currency. The Presi
dent caused them to bo contradicted, because he
considered them as not merely false, but mischie
vous. The Radicals, some weeks ago, finding that
they wcro not likely to shake the determination of
the President to adhere to his policy of recon
struction, varied their tactics, and undertook to
foil him by spreading highly-colored accounts of
Southern disloyally and virulence. Their present
cue is to convey tho impression that tho South is
a nest of unrepentant traitors, who cannot bo
trusted, and, by their persistant slanders, to fun
the sparks of discoid into a llame.
Of courso we have foolish and wrong-headed
individuals in tho South, as there aro everywhere.
But tho general temper of our people is acquies
cent. Tho men of standing in our country, tho
mon who were looked up to during tho war as
trusted lenders of public sentiment, neither ndvisc
nor intend anything different from the discharge
of their duties as obedient citizens. General Lee,
General Johnston, Wade Hampton, Dick Taylor,
and, in fact, every military leader in the South
whoso nbility and character commanded conlidencc
during tho contest, is now Betting an example of
cheerful and manly submission to tho authority of
the Government. Hundreds of eminent Southern
citizens, who have made a figure in political life,
counsel recognition of the facts of the actual situ
ation, including the abolition of slavery. No man
in tho South, of respectability and inllucnce, has
actod otherwise. And it is these conspicuous facts
which corrob?rale? the contradiction recently made
from Washington of the misrepresentations and
exaggerations of the Radicals and which gives tho
lio directly to the slanderous statements of the
New York 2'imes.
Tlic Kctchum Dcfnlcntion t'nsc.
The latest accounts relating to the abstraction
of bonds and the forgery of gold certificates by
Edward R. Kctchum, whose fraudulent operations
caused the failure of the houses of Kctchum, Son
& Co., and Charles Graham A Co., give a tolerably
complote statement of the losses and liabilities of
the two houses.
KETCHUM, SON AND COMPANY.
The amount of funds, bonds and various securi
ties tnkon from Morris Kctchum, Son & Co. will
more than equal two and three-quarter millions >
dollars, though it will not reach threo millions
dollars. The entire liabilities of the linn arc fully
four millions. The amount of the assets has not
yet been realized, but will bo about equal to the
value of the abstracted bonds between two and a
half and three millions dollars.
Included in the claim against the estate is a
check for the sum of two hundred and fifty thou
sand dollars now held by tho Union Bank. One
check, it is stated, was regularly signed, but was
filled up by order of Edward Kctchum, directly be
fore his flight, and passed over to Mr. Graham, by
whom it was deposited in tho Union Rank and
drawn against. Morris Kctchum it Co. declined
to acknowledge the check, and it was at once re
turned to the Union Rank. It was originally drawn
upon the Mechanics' Rank, but was not certified.
It is stated that the Union Rank has sued the
assignees of Kctchum ?t Co. to obtain tho full
amount of tho check. If this measure should fail
tho check will be chargenblc to the estate of
Charles Graham & Co. The matter wiU no doubt
be left to the decision of the courts.
CnAULES GRAHAM AND COMPANY.
One million three hundred and fifty thousand
dollars will probably cover tho liabilities of Charles
Graham it Co. The stock balance against Mr.
Gralinm?$205,000?makes a i>art of it, as well as
tho claims of the Importers' and Traders' and the
Fourth National Rank, and of tho houses of Dub
ney, Morgan it Co. and Kctchum, Son ft Co. The
assets of Graham it Co. applicable to the payment
of tho claim amount to $600,000, five-sixths of
which are now in the hands of their assignees.
THE AGGREGATE LOSSES.
Tho. liabilities of Morris Ketclmm ft Co. and
Charles Graham it Co., including tho redeemed
checks hold by the latter, will amount to 10,700,000;
amount of assets of both houses about $3,250,000.
Deducting the value of the forged checks held by
Mr. Graham, the total present liabilities of both
houses aro $5,350,000.
Tho total extent of tho abstractions of bonds
and tho forgery of gold paper by tho defaulter,
Edward R. Kctchum, according to the above
statements, may be set forth at $4,200,000.

Letter from Gen. Jo. E. Johnston?The Hut y
of the South.
Baltimore, August 21.?The Fredericksburg
(Va.) Ledger, of Tuesday, publishes the following
letter of General Joseph E. Johnston :
Buffalo Springs, Mecklenburg Co., Va., >
August 17, 18C5. ,
You ask my views of tho future courso and fu
ture interests of us all. The case is so plain that
very little can be said or written upon it.
Wc, of the South, referred the question at issue
between us and tho United States to tho arbitra
ment of the sword.
The decision has boon mado and it is against us.
We must acquiesce in that decision, accept it as
final, and rccognizo tho fact that Virginia is again
one of the United States.
Our duties and interests coincide. Wo shall con
sult the ono and perform the other by doing all
that wc can to promoto the welfare of our neigh
bors and to restore prosperity to the country.
Wc should at once commence the duties of'peaec
ful citizons, upon some useful pursuit, qualifying
ourselves to vote if possible, and at the polls' our
votes should be cast for conservative men?men
who understand and will maintain Uto interests of
Virginia as one of tho United States.
This is tho courso which I have- recommended to
all those with whom I have conversed on tho sub
ject, and that which I havo adopted for myself as
far as practicable.
Very truly yours,
J. E. JOHNSTON.

Crime, and Demoralization?Colchester, the Spiritual Me
dium?Eire in Jvktt S!re't?Secretary McCulloch, ?f-<\
New York, August 2G.
The mctropoli.i to-day is not excited by any very
astounding news. A more than usual number of
crimes havo been reported, und it seems as if the
terminationpf the.war were about to lead uh into
a vortex of sin, crime, ami murders. From every
part t-^t-^tountiy reports como from day to day
of h?VrOr upon horror, and the sensitivo mind nat
urally shrinks from the records of theso terrible
demonstrations of dopravity. In numerous cases
it is f?tmd" that discharged loldicrs arc criminals;
but it may b?~ said of them as i body, and a very
largo one, that '.hoy arc entitled to all the respect
duo to good citizens. Doubtless they who arc now
becoming criminals have learned, or added to their
lessons, amid the laxity of camp life. Four sol
diers, for violence to a ten?alo in_Bostou, have boon
imprisoned for life, and in Detroit and other cities,
trials have been going on against siililicrs who
have done grievous wrong to themselves, to soci
ety, and to the pr?ifession of which they have been
members. That this spirit of disorganization may
cease, is the prayer of every goo?l man.
Colchester, the spiritual medium, who would not
Eay a Federal taxas a juggler, has been decided
y a jury at Bulialo to be only a juggler. This
young man originally had gifts of the Kind said to
bo enjoyed by certain persons, and which are
claimed to arise from purely natural causes; but
by his dissipation and vanity he has descended to
becomo a person to bo scorned cvon bv spiritualists.
Ho is in the habit, in the evening, of visiting pub
lic places, where he appears with a face painted
whito and red?a pintare of vanity and effemina
cy?and his demonstration!! havobooome a carica
ture upon what sonic people persist in calling spir
itual manifestations. When science shall examine
theso things, they will be found as ancient as
Egypt?very wonderful, and yet very simple, com
mon to man everywhere, anil a part of our com
mon Inheritance. A daily correspondent, however,
is not expected to enter on discussions connected
with such supposed occult matters. Lot it suffice
that Colchester has received no injustice from the
jury who watched the case. Judge] Edmonds, in
the Horald to-day. defends spiritualism and spir
itualists from th? chargea brought against them in
tho judgment pronounced by that activo but not
always astuto or learned journal.
A Arc took place yesterday evening in the pyro
technic warehouse of Mr, Jenes, No. 1(5 John street.

Reports are current here that tho Secretary of
the Treasury is about to seek a new loan, but un
less ho has'changed his mind within a fow weeks,
he haB no thought of such a thing. It is his in
tention to economise in oven way, and if he does
anything, it will be to consolidate the debt, in order
to lighten its pressure upon the people. Hois a I
profound financier, and above all the dictation of !
parti/ans or interested moneyed men. Tho Fed
eral finances have been ably managed since he en
tered upon the duties of his office. Tho merit of)
tho Secretary is in llbl practical views of the finan

Tho Washington correspondent of the N. Y.
lTerald, writing under date of tho '24th, gives the
following very interesting intelligence :
r-noanEss of heco.nstruction* in oeokgia?xeoro
Judge Lochraue and other Georgians arc in the
city to-night and represent the work of recon
struction r.i that State to be progr -.-sing rapidly
and satisfactorily to oil Union men. Lot-Inane has
mado speeches in ?lift?rent parts of tho State since
tho appointment of Mr. Johnson us Provisional
Governor, and has everywhere taken strong
grounds in favor of recognizing the abolition of
slavery, the fact that the negro is a free man, in
stead of a free negro, the necessity and rightful
11C88 of his being admitted a competent witness in
civil and criminal proceedings, the impossibility of
colonizing him elsewhere against his will, and in
favor of abrogating distinctions on account of
color. Ho is confident the people of Georgia will
accedo to all theso conditions and settle the prin
ciple of the negroes' right to vote, subject to auch
restrictions as are imperatively demanded.
The Southern men at present in Washington co
incido in the belief that the transition from slave
to free labor in their respective States will produce
little trouble. There is a wide-spread repugnance
to conferring upon negroes the right ot suffrage;
but this feeling is rapidly giving way to one of
broader statesmanship. It is believed to be to
tho interest of the South to retain the negroes and
to guarantee them such rights and protection as
will securo their friendship und prevent antagon
isms of race. It is urged that if immediate suf
frago were given the blacks tb^t several of the
Southern States would have negro majorities and
negro Congressmen, and thereby prevent white
immigration, and compel its emigration, ami thus
make them essentially negro State governments.
To prevent this it is urged that tho negro popula
tion of the Southern States should be nut on pro
bation, white immigration encouraged, and the
fircpon<lcranco of white voters insured before es
abiishing universal siifirago. Many far-seeing
Southern men recognize negro suffrage as onlv a
question of time, and desire to obviate twenty-five
years of ficrco and needless agitation throughout
the country by conceding the principio now.
TnE SUBJECT OF P.UlDONS.
Tho report first published in a New York daily,
and subsequently copied into the Washington pa
pers, that Hon. John Wilson was appointed chief
of a new pardon bureau, to organize on his re
turn, an?l act under tho President's immediate
supervision, is wholly without foundation. Iinlccd.
it could not well bo true. The Attorney-General
is tho legal adviser to the President, and all tho
papers relating to pardons properly go to his office
before being sent to tho President for approval.
When signed by tho President thoy must go to tho
State Departmeut for tho seal, of which the Secre
tary of Stato is tho solo official custodian. The
contemplated pardon bureau could bo nothing
moro than an additional desk of the Attorney
General's office. If the President's intentions con
cerning the future granting of pardons havo boon
truthfully represented, very litUo necessity exists
for creating now " bureaus to expedito the busi
ness. The question is not how many sots of pa
Eors can bo put through in a given length of time,
ut rathor how many of them admit or postpone
ment. If it bo urged that delay will entail suffer
ing and loss of property in many casos, it may bo
answorod that tho President probably desires to
punish many who deservo it in this way, but who
would escape entirely if immediately pardoned.
