THE LUMINOUS and able leitor fr?*
Excellency Governor ORR to the Presj

It presents a strong appeal for considere
and justice to proprietors upon the eeabc
and it presents it upon propor grounds. A
from the claims of right to their prop
which the proprietors of this District hav
common with citizens of other sections of
South, under the restoration policy of
President, it presents a claim to tho rest
tion of this property upon the broader gre
of interest and humanity. It is of inte
to the State and to the country that
islands and tho main, producing hitherto
finest cotton in the world, should bc ct
vated. It is important that the looms of
country shall have this cotton for their fi
fabrics ; it is important that the Governn
shall have the revenue which this cotton,
domestic fabrics, or for commerce, will j
duce; but it is especially important t
the tens of thousands of freedmen he
ing there shall have tho subsistence wh
the restoration of these lands alone can g
Restored to their proprietors, with pr
6r measures to impress on freedmen a 66
of dependence upon their own labor
support, it is to bo presumed that they v
bloom and brighten as before j that setl
ments will bo restored ; roads and conimi
cations opened ; peace, order and society
turned ; and the fields rejoice, as of old,
their fleecy harvests. But without that, i
lands, now a waste, become a wildern*
and,literally, a howling wilderness. Airea
they are tho abodes of barbarism. Tho p
prietor who, under a military escort, revis
his once charming grounds, is met by an <
hibition of debasement and brutality whi
are only equaled in the gloomy regions
Africa. Within a singlo year a stride of
most a generation backward has been mai
and the miserable occupants of these lands
some native.and many refugees from inla
districts-crowded together, without pla;
discipline, direction, implements, stock
provisions to support them to another hi
vest, are awaiting, in tho unconsciousness
delirium, a fate as fearful as has ever fall
on a people. Some few may survive
When disease, destitution and disorder shr
have done their work, somo scattered mei
bers of the present tribe may find subsisten
upon tho oysters, fish and other natural pr
ducts of the sea and land ; but the gener
calamity can bo averted in no other way thi
that so eloquently urged upon the Govor
ment by Governor ORR. The views of th
communication aro further presied upon tl
authorities at Washington by Mr. TRESCO
who is fully possessed of the subject; and oi
planters may have tho assurance, therefor
that their claims will be fairly presentei
and if m t accorded, it will bo for the reaso
only of the triumph of that party which find
in no consideration of humanity, even to th
miserable victims of their philanthropy, th
reason to forge their plans for tho preserve
tion of political power.
A FEW weeks since wo saw in some of ou
exchanges statements, apparently authentic
of the very straitened circumstances of th
widow and family of tho late lamented Geo
oral JACKSON: and, prompted by a profouni
admiration of his trancondent militar
genius and his exalted moral worth, wo pro
posed to take up a subscription in Charlestoi
for their relief. After the first announce
ment of tho purpose, however, it occurred t<
us that we lnighthave been misled, or, if th<
facts were as stated, that it might bt
moro becoming and respectful of the feeling!
of that most estimable lady, to learn fron
her whether she would acquiesce in the itu
pressions prev tiling as to her circumstance!
and tho measures to relieve them the impres
sion was likely to inspire. To our note ad.
dressed to her upon the subject wo have
received the letter which we publish
below, and, as an act of justice to the lady,
we would request such of our coteraporarief
as have published the notice of her circum?
stances, ?ind which have taken the measure?
to relievo thom which we ourselves pro?
posed, to publish, also, this communication.
The spirit of the letter, it must bo confessed,
is very beautiful. It is not denied that she is
without meaus, and that she is dependent up?
on her father, whose fortuno is known not to
be ample ; and thero is still room for the re?
gret that tho relict of one so veueratcd could
not be placed by his admiring countrymen in
a position of a more porfect independence;
but she is too conscious of what is duo to her?
self as a woman, and to the memory of her
groat husband, to bo placed in the pusition of
a mendicant of common charity ; and contri?
butions, in misconception of her position,
therefore, with the most perfect kindness
for those who offer them, she feels constrained
to decline. The resolution we admire. It is
ono which, in justice tn her, we ought to have
anticipated. Dut tho wish lingers with us,
us it will linger, doubtless, willi our readers,
that in somo way, apart from a process so un?
pleasant, the means might bc found to testi?
fy to those he has left hehind him the grati?
tude and admiration of a people for the great.
est mon thia age has known. ~Tne smajJ
amount contributed, upon tho original an?
nouncement of our purpose, however, we will
still take the liberty of forwarding, in the
hope that, in some way, she will be pleased
to use it.

MY DEAU Sin : Your letter of thc nd inst, was
forwarded to mc from Lexington, Virginia. J
have delayed answer for a few days, hoping to re?
ceive tho papers to which you referred, but it has
not yet reached me, and I have not had tho picas
uro of reading your editorial ; but. judging from
thc remarks in your letter, I supposo it ia a simi?
lar publication to what has recently appeared in
many of the newspapers, representing the family
of General JACKSON' as suffering for tho necessi?
ties of life, and appealing to thc public for theil
It is a source ol' deep regret and mortitication
to rae, and to my family and friends, that such a
misunderstanding should exist iu regard to my
circumstances. It is true that almost thc whole
of my little fortune has been swept away. My no?
ble husband, actuated by patriotism, invested ir
Confederate bonds, to assist tho Government, and
I, following his cxamplo, thc consequence was thc
loss of nearly tho whole of his estate ; but God
has still left to mo ono of the kindest of fathers,
who has the means of providing all tho comforts
of lifo for me and my orphan child. Tho pecunia?
ry sufferings of others in our afflicted land have
been so much greater than my own that, in this
respect, I have only need of a moro thankful heart.
And I, of all others, should have no fears for thc
future,-for tho covenant-keeping God of my hus?
band has watched over us heretofore, and thc
love of this great people to me and my little child,
on his account, lilis my heart with grateful joy.
While it is ono of the greatest comforts of my
desolated lifo to seo thc many beautiful and elo?
quent tributes to thc memory of my beloved hus?
band, and I would gratefully accept any Offerings
that aro voluntarily given ns testimonial* of lovt
andi gratitude lo him, yet tho contributions that
aro now called for arc given under a false impres?
sion, and it is inconsistent with my ideas of honor
and rectitude to rcccivo them. I would, there?
fore, beg that all efforts that aro made to raino a
fund for my "relief,'' both in Charleston and else?
where, bo immediately stopped.
With thanks to tho warm-hearted und generous
citizens of Charleston for their kind feelings
towards mo and miuc,
I remain, yours very truly,

C?~ My address is Charlotte, N. C., care <>f Mr,
JAMES P. Inwis.
WE HAD tho pleosuro, on Saturday night,
of witnessing ARTEMUS WARD'S performance,
We were expecting a rich trout in tho waj
of humor, sinco our acquaintance with the
husband of BETSY JANE has been of long
duration, and wo knew him both wisely and
well. We were not disappointed, nor do we
suppose those of our readers were who were
present at his lecture. We enter into no crit?
icism of Mr. WARD'S "show," inasmuch as
there is no necessity for it. The gentleman
is known the wide world over as a humorist.
KB a writer possessing a wondrous amount ol
genius. Those of our readers who have
read the first book that this inimitable writer
printed cannot have forgotten the many un?
surpassed papers of that volume. His de?
scriptions of his experiences as a showman,
an exhibitor of " waxfiggers and moral
snakes," his extreme modesty ns a business?
man, and his homely observations on mee
and manners, aro unsurpassed. His latex
production is equally good. It is in thie
book that wo have his experiences in Mor
mondom, and here also we have hie assurance
that ho was so excessively loyal that ho pul
all his wife's relations in tho army, but re?
mained at homo, as he had to commaud the
Home Guard at Baldinsville.
In reality, Mr. BROWN, OS is Mr. WARD'S
real name, is a most legitimate performer,
Throughout the Southern country ho bas re?
ceived the hearty support of all who desire
a pleasant entertainment. Ho isa gentleman
of the first water, as wo kuow, and to our
citizens, who wish to change the monotony ol
our dull and dreary every-day life, wo would
most earnestly say that nothing would please
them more than a visit to ARTEMUS WARD'S
locturo this evening at the Hibernian Hull.
Besides the humor of tho lecturer, POIIIO cap?
ital scenes from Utah are presented, with an
interesting account of tho present condition
and habits of the Mormons.
