Public Meeting of Plantera of Marlboro'
District.
[BBPOBTED FOR THE CHABLESTON DAILY NEWS.]
At a meeting- of the Planters of this District,
hold at Bonncttsvillu on Salo Day, Mr. Z. A. Drake
tras called to the Chair, and Capt. Frank: Matjry
requested to act as Secretary.
On motion, a Committee of one from each Beat
Company was appointed to prepare business for
the consideration of the meeting. Tho Committee
"tras composed of tho following gentlemen : Col.
-John W. Harrington, John W. Btubbs,- A. G.
-Johnson, P. II. Hakeb, J. H. Lane, J. A. McRae,
B. B. Mr Call, and P. H. Rogers.
Tho Committee, after consultation, reported the
.following resolutions, which were adopted :
Resolved, That tho withdrawal of tho military
: from the State, at the earliest possible period, ?b
tho beat measure to secure, on a basiB lasting,
-sure and satisfactory to both freedmon and
planters, the relations existing between thorn.
Resolved, That such a measure would be accom
panied with less confusion and difficulty than any
. other, and that,'having pledged ourselves by tho
oath qf allegiance to recognize the existing state
of things, we do not hesitate to say that it is our
honest purpose to abide thereby.
Resolved, That if inconsistent with the views of
.?the authorities to remove the military, wo express
: the opinion that the plan of the military to compel
the freedman to contract with his former owner,
"when desired by the latter, is wise, prudent, and
.absolutely necessary.
'Resolved, That we, the planters of the District,
pledge ourselves not to contract with any freed
xnan unless he can produco a certificate of regular
discharge from his former owner.
Besotted, That under no circumstances whatao
ever will we rent land to any freodmen, nor will
-we permit them to livo on our premises as em
.ploycoa.
Resolved, That no system can be dovised for tho
present which can secure success, where tho dis
cipline and management of the freedman is on
tiroly taken out of the hands of the planter, and
we invoke tho authorities to recognize this fact,
which cannot but be apparent to them.
Resolved, That wo request tho military to coaso
tho habit of making negroes act as couriers, sher
iffs and constables to servo write and notices upon
planters?a system so destructive to good order
and disciplino.
Resolved. That wo call on our young men to fill
up tho military companies now organized in the
district, not only to preserve order and quiet, hut
the lives of tho weak and unprotected, seriously
threatened undes the existing atato ot affairs.
Resolved. That these proceedings bo published
in the papers of Charleston; that a copy do ?ntto
our members of the Legislature, and one to Col.
Hurry, commandant at Cheraw.

It is the wish of Major-General Howard, Com
xoissioncr of the Freedmon, to suppress tho falso
representation of certain parties in the Northern
StateB, who are collecting money for tho benoflt,
as they say, of twenty thousand destitute freed
mon in the District of Columbia. The Goneral
?tato? that there is no foundation for such state
jnente, for the records of the bureau show that
while there aro nearly twenty thousand freedmon
In the District, less than three thousand are re
ceiving rations from the United States Govern
ment.

Remember the Poor.
Of all tho God-like attributes, tho possession of
which in a greater or lesser degree, stumps upon
mortal man the divine imago of tho immortal
Creator, charity stands forth pre-eminent. Ho who,
when his head reposeth on his nightly pillow, can
call to mind an net of charity performed that day?
a fellow creature rendered happier by his well
timed bounty?shall close his eyelids in a swoot and
happy sleep, whilst approving angels hovering
around his couch shall fan him with their heavenly
wings, and bear him blissful dreams. In all the rich
garniture of graces planted by virtuo in tho human
breast, Charity, the brightest gem, twin sistor of
Religion, sheds forth the most brilliant lustre, tho
dazzling rays of which even "covercth all siiiB."
In the exercise of this God-like attribute, the ten
der heart of woman finds a heavenly consolation,
even when, beset by lifo's vicissitudes, she bows
down beneath affliction's chasteumg rod. What
soever may bo our lot, bo tho sky of our happiness
overshadowed by tho clouds of misfortune, of dis
ease, of death, or bo we basking in tho sunshine
of lifo's joys, lot us ovor remember the poor.
When tho flowers of Spring peep forth from
their leafy bowers, and gent?o zephyrs wuft their
fragrance through tho genial air, lot us remember
the poor.
When the scorching Summer's sun looks down
from a cloudless sky, and tho luscious fruit burst
ing in its ripeness, with mellow blushes, tempts
the passerby?again, lot the poor not bo forgotten.
When the Autumn leaves aro falling thick and
fast, swept swiftly before tho whistling winds in
an eddying current, and the air grows bleak and
chill, cooled by the breath of fast approaching
Winter : then let the poor be remembered.
But when the icy mantle of Winter herself en
circles all within its chilling folds?when fast falling
snow-flakes blind the eyes of tho belated traveler,
and tho face of Nature hos-wrapt in a snowy
shroud?when tho sod is frozen hard and crisp,
and naked feet are frost-bitten, till tho scalding
tears drop from the eyes of tho poor?oh, then,
most of all, remember them.
Remember them always ; let them never
be forgotten; let them he rcmembcrod in
tho approaching winter. Complain not of
povorty, because, forsooth, tho accidents of
fortune and of war have left you unprovided
with accustomed luxuries ; think of the poor
half-clad, ill-fed beings who lack the necessaries of
life, who have not oven tho wherc-with-all to pur
chase fuel. Happy parents, whose tender babes
lio snugly tucked under the warm coverlets, shel
tered from the piercing wintry blasts?think of tho
wretched mothers whose babes he shivering in
cold in half-furnished garrets.
Let oharity warm your hesrts, and loose tho
strings ?von of tho scantily-furnished purse.
Think not only of your own necessities ; repine not
at riches flown ; thank God for comforts yet re
maining, and that you may be blessed with hap
piness and prosperity, ever cease to remember
tho poor.

The Duke of Sonora.
Durin g the war, publie attention was so much
absorbed in our domestic affairs, that foreign
polities was all but a sealed letter to us. This
waB natural. What cared we for a revolution in
Greece, the expulsion of King Otho, and the elec
tion and coronation of a Danish prince, now ruling
under tho title of GeoroeI? No, wo had tho
Greeks at our door; and God knows thoy knocked
loud enough for admission. Occasionally tho
newspapers would givo us a stray paragraph about
tho French and their doings in Mexico, or about
Sir John Bowbing and his ready method of deal
ing with the pig tails?a rogular bull in a china
shop. But desultory items like these made no
impression upon the reader, and- the close of the
war, as it found moat of us uncomfortably inno
cent of anything like an available circulating me
dium, also forced us to tho confession of total
ignorance of anything that had transpired in
the outside world during the past fonr years.
Ono of these topics, frequently alluded to, was
a colony to be formed in ?Sonora by Dr. Gwin, late
United Statos Senator from California. We had
heard that he was the right-hand man of the Em
peror Maximilian, and that the latter, in token of
recognition of tho valuable services he expected
from Dr. Gwin, had conforred a patent of nobility
upon him, under tho titlo of Duko of Sonora.
Wo mot many of the noble Doctor's old frionas,
who had known him well in his old ante-ducal
California days, who, of course, were much pleas
ed to hear of their friend's prosperity, and hoped,
in case of the worst coining to tho worst?" if we
should not succeed in gaining oar independence"?
that some fat crumbs would fall for them from
his Grace's table.
Wo now learn that there was somo room for all
this speculation, and that the facts are as follows:
Dr. Gwin, who seems to bo considerable of a poli
tician, and possessed of most insinuating ways,
succeeded in persuading tho Emperor Napoleon
that he could wield a great influence in California
and tho adjoining territories, as also in tho then
Confederate States. He proposed to colonizo
Sonora?an outlying Mexican province?and use
his influonco in furthering tho interests of Franco
and of Maximilian. Napoleon seemed pleaBod
with the Doctor, and gave him letters to Maximi
lian, nominating him, as wo should say, for the
Duchy of Sonora.
B'i< it seems Max has a will of his own, and is
rather jealous of his prerogative, as regards
French dictation; and Dr. Gwnt, alroady socure in
his rank and position, was in tho city of Mexico
for months boforo ho thought it worth his while
to call on the Emperor?all the while engaged in
the affairs of his nascent colony. Agents wore sent
to California, Nevada and Oregon, to encourago
immigration to Sonora. When at length ho
sent his credentials to Max, the latter referred
him to his Minister. Dr. Gwin took this in high
dudgeon, .saying that ho was not in the habit of
treating with subordinates?that at Paris he al
ways negotiated with tho Emperor himself. Bat
this produced no change in the angry Maximilian.
Gwin goes back to Napoleon, and complains to
tho groat Pasha of his Emir's misbehaviour. Na
. Poleon gave him another letter. Bat on the Doc
i tor's return to the Mexican capital he still found
the imperial door closed. The Emperor refused
to sign the treaty arranged butwocn Napoleon
and Dr. Owin. Thoro was, thoroforo, nothing for
it but to .'submit to bia ill fortune with tfio bout
grace bo could command. About tlio first of Juno
last bo left Mexico for Matamoros, decidedly
crest-fallen; since which timo wo have hoard noth
iu of him. And this is the end of tho bubble.
A sad reverso, truly, to the individual Dr.
Gwin. Whothor tho growth and development of
poor Moxico is thereby retarded is another ques
tion that wo will not now stop to consider. And
poor Mrs. Owin, tho fascinating hostess in Paris?
already tnsting tho sweets of a coronot?tho
cynosure of all eyes, in hor brilliant drawing
rooms?where sho sat, rosplcndont with dia
monds, under tho chandolior?nover lost sight of
by sovcral most gentleman-like detootives. So

ducal palace, it would scoin. Wo fool sorry for
this victim of tho ilcklo goddess. How truo tho

LETTER FROM NEW YORK.
[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
New Yoiik, December 2.?Thero arc somo things
thnt, when donc on a small scale, bringdown upon
the perpetrators the indignation and censuro of a
community, whilst tho man who docs the samo
thing on a grand bcoIo ?b rospoetcd and courted by
all. The individual who lends you ton dollars,
and receives your watch in pawn as socurity, is a
pawnbroker whom ovory body despisos, and at
whom the public noso is ever olovated in con
tempt; but tho millionaire who advances you ton
thousand., charging an exorbitant interest, and
taking as security a mortgage on your house, is
respected as a capitalist, a moneyed man, a mer
chant prince. If an individual cuts a friond'B
throat in tho dark he is a murdoror and is sentenc
ed to dance in tho air with a rope around liis neck;
but if a railroad company, through tho careless
ness of one or moro of its employees, allows two
trains of cars to run into each other, smashing up
things in general and killing a great many pasaon
gers in particular, the law turns a lenient eyo to
wards tho wholesale murder, and twelve stupid
men decide that nobody is to blamo. Ono of those
respectable eases ot wholesale homicide has just
boon enacted on tho Now Jersey railroad. An ex
press train and a coal train collided, smashing up
some of tho cars, upsetting others, and, worse
than all, killing noven persons and maiming sev
enteen. It was, of course, nobody'B fault.
Many persons are undor tho impression that
Fcnianiam is a bubble which must soon burst,
collapse and disappear. If it bo a bubble, somo
body has been blowing at it moBt persistently and
vigorously, for it certainly is beginning to assume
pretty respectable proportions. Tho Fenians ac
tually have a sort of cap?tol hero. Their head
quarters may. bo so designated, for tho business
conducted there looks very much like that of an
organized government, or at least, an established
political association. Thero is a trooii-ry"depart
ment, a war department, an oxooutive or civil de
partment, a navy department, a guard-room and
armory, ?..o. Trio building is in Seventeenth-street,
and is one of tho most magnificent private resi
dences in this city. Tho bubblo is very large, and
with the sun of hopo shining upon it, is vory beauti
ful, but I fear that a puff of adversity mil soon como
to becloud tho sun and burst tho beautiful bubblo.
Tho wire pullers and betting men are enjoying
themselves to their hearts' content. Last night
there wore three ratification meetings,, and somo
more pools wore made up at Lafayetto Hall. In
pool first, Roberts sold for $65, Hoffman for $40,
Hegkkr for $4, and G?nther same price. I have
not tho slightest idea who will win, but were I
forced to "back my judgment," I should invest my
pile in Roberts' stock.
The Herald is out with an articlo to-day assert
ing that in November, 1865, notwithstanding tho
withdrawal of tho theatrical patronage, it publish
ed ono hundred and fifteen and a half columns of
advertisement? more than it did in Novembor,
1864; this, at an average of $150 per column, foots
up to over $17,000, and this, therefore, the Herald
claims to make monthly out of the manager row.
Notwithstanding this, Bennett oan't help show
ing how mad he is, and in this very issue exhibits
his apleon in an absurd manner by publishing a
lengthy criticism of Sbau's Opera Company in
Chicago.
Brooklyn, not wishing to lay behind New York
in tho sensation lino, has just produced a divorce
case. Mr. Packer's wife sues for divorce on tho
ground that Packer has broken an important
commandmont. racker in turn suos also on same
grounds. If both of them have such an opinion
of each othor, and both want a divorce, I can't
imagine why they do not settle tho thing without
any suits av all. Thoro are also a couple of young
Packers, however, and this may account for it.
The colored poople in Boston hod boen holding
a convention "for the pnrposo of having tho Con
stitution of the United States eo altered as to give
a general qualification for voters in all tho StatoB."
Tho darkies probably think that the Constitution
must have been injured to a certain extent by the
great strain on it in tho last four years, and, liko
good physicians, suggest a change.
Meyerbeer's great opera, L'Africanos, was per

attacked a coach on But-Xhfi-U-d's express route,
on Sunday, November 26, near Downs' Springs,
and killed six of the passengers and tho expresi

coach thov went to Downs' Springs and Blair Sta

Il II l It FROM COLUMBIA.
[from our own correspondent.]
Columbia, December 7.?Your unfortunate cor
respondent imagined yesterday, at tho hour of ad
journment of tho Houso, that ho would have a
holiday, as. that body had adjourned over until
Friday; but on reaching the hotel ho learned that
tho Senate, being behind lumd in work, had deter
mined to sit to-day. In tho faithful discharge of
his duty, ho went to the College Library this morn
ing, and spent a great part of the day in listening
to the District Court Bill. As tho time was spent
in fixing the salaries of Judges, nothing occurred
that would interest your readers, who certainly
caro nothing about what the District Judgo of
Baruwoll or Colletou may be allowed for his valu
ablo services.
The only other matter that was under conside
ration, was a resolution offered by Mr. Hempiiill,
to empower the Bank of the State to borrow for
tho State tho sum of one hundred thousand dol
lars, for the paymont of which, within one year,
tho faith of the State should be pledged. This
opened the batteries of tho opponents of the
bank, and several speeches wcro made.
General Williams said that this was the Tro
jan horso ou which the bauk designed to ride
again into power, and Mr. Tillm?vn said that it was
a rotton, stinking institution; that its little assets
are employed to subsidize? tho press of the State,
and to purchase the tongues of its orators. He
further said that ho never saw so cool a picco of
effrontery as the statement of the President, that
ho had opened an offico of deposit, which means
that tho State is to pay tho salarios of officers.
Tho measure was supported by Mr. Buist and
others, but, before a vote could be taken, the
clock struck four, and, as that had boon agreed
upon as the hour of adjournment, tho hammer of
tho President fell, and tho Senate adjourned. The
measure will probably bo passod to-morrow. It is
necessary that tho State should havo funds, and
no ono is so able to obtain them for her as tho
able President of that Bank, which has so long and
bo well discharged tho duty of hor fiscal agent.
The opposition to the Bank of the State is
largely founded on the political influence that
such a body may exorcise, but no man can assert
that its present managers have ever prostituted
her to any such purpose. She has certainly kept
the? Stnto comparatively freo from taxation, and
preserved her credit unsullied ; and if tho State,
at any timo moro than another, required hor ser
vices, that time is the present. One change, how
ever, would be beneficial. The number of Direc
tors should be small, and no Director should, at
any time, and under any circumstances, be allow
ed to borrow money from the Bank, or to endorso
any note offered there for discount. Each Direc
tor should be allowed fivo dollars a day for his
services. Tho tone of South Carolina merchants
has, up to tho present timo, boon gonorally too
high for thorn to .seek such positions merely for
the purpose of bolstering up a failing credit; but
groat changes have boon and aro taking place,
and it is, perhaps, tho part of prudence to guard
carefully against ovcry contingency.
Ex-Governor Maoratu is, I understand, in this
city, at tho house of Col. Sloan. It is impossible
to say when tho elections for Judges and Chan
cellors will take placo. Thoy may occur to-mor
row and may not during tho session. The Houbo
has already signified ite willingness, but the
Senate seems still to hesitate. Tho most promin
ent candidates for the Judgeship aro the Hon. F.
J. Moses, the Hon. A. P. Aldrich, Mr. Pbesslet
and Mr. Dawxins. For tho two vacant seats on
the Chancery bench are, I believe, Messrs. John
bon, Thompson, Lesehne, Mblton and Hudson.

Tho steamer Atlantic, from California, with
?WiW.lXTO, has arrived at Now York.
The Spanish Admiral, Pareja, continues to
threaten to bombard tho Chilian ports, without
daring to carry them into effect. Ho announces
that the blockade is restricted to tho six principal
ports?Valparaiso, Baldira, Coquimbo, Herraturra,
Torne, and Torcahuaus. All others are left opon
to commerce.
The revolution in Peru has triumphed, and
poaco has been restored. The overthrown Presi
dent took refuge on an English war steamer, and
is on his way to Panama. Lima was capturod on
the morning of November 6, by the revolutionary
troops. Tho only resistance was by about four
hundred troops in tho plaza, where tho palace was
located. They fought until all wore shot.
Tho now Government will doubtlessa repudiate
tho treaty with Spain, and make a common causo
with Chin, the overthrow of tho Spanish treaty
having been tho object of the revolution. Tho
Contrai American Republics are all at peace.
General Zuloaza has boon expelled to France, by
order of Maximilian.
The French war steamer had forced a passage
on the Rio Orando, and reached Matamoros.
Tho Fronch transport Allie had reached Mexico
with four hundred Austrians, and a detachment of
Zouaves, en route to Matamoros.
The Empress Charlotte stopped eight days at

Maximilian remains in the city of Mexico.

that of the time of Louis tho Fourteenth, tho main
board being elaborately adorned with inlaid pearl

tho most brilliant shades of Chinese satin, workod
in silk, richly adorned with flowers, represented as
boing ono of tho richest articles of the kind over
imported, it having cost $250 in gold in Canton.
Tho piano is roproaontod by those who haye tested
