A Savannah paper of a late date contains tho
following: "Mr. L. S. BENNETT, the agent here of
the steamer Rockland, which has been running
between here and Charleston, received a telegram
yesterday, stating that the Rockland had been
sold to Captain FEBDERICK ADAIB, for $10,500. The
new owner proposes running her between Charles?
ton and Mount Pleasant as a Ferry Boat.
It appears by the records in the Treasury De?
partment that the revenue received from the
Southern States from April, 1865, to the firat day
.f this month, amounts to nearly $29,000,000, prin?
cipally derived from abandoned lands and internal
revenue. Louisiana has paid over $8,000,000 of
this, while from Virginia less than $1,000,000 has
Among the last on dita at Washington is one to
the effeot that GEORQE BANCROFT'S friends have

but that he has declined in expectation of becom?

are considered formidable.
A bill has been introduced in the New Joreoy
Legislature, to secure the safety of passengers on

A Brownsville letter says, about the now f
famous town of Bagdad: " Bagdad is a city of
some importance, which has grown up in the
blockade-running interest during the late war.
They claim a population of ten thousand, but I 1
think half that number is a largo estimato. I was <
there once, and was not favorably impressed with <
the aspect of matters there at that time. It is (or
was) important to the Imp?rialiste, and its cap?
ture (if it can be held) will necessitate the sur?
render of the whole Northern frontier by the Im- 1
peria! forces." 1
The Rockingham (Va.) Remitter, of Friday, says i
that a history of the lato war is now being written
by two highly-educated and accomplished gentle?
men of the Yaliey, Colonel WILLIAM AL LEN and
Professor J. HOTCHKISS, of Staunton. Both of
these gentlemen were connected with thc army of
Northern Virginia from tho inception of the con?
test, and, therefore, aro in posse?* iou of fa<-t? and
incidents which others, who have afMiinifd the

The rteainship roraica, at New York from Ha?

Freneh troops in large numbers were arriving at
Vera Cruz from tho interior and embarking un
transports. They were not, however, bound for
France, but, it was understood, for the defence of j
Tampico, which waa seriously threatened by tho
R?publicain, ami it rv even intimated that they
were intended for fronlior service against both tho

VETO OF TUE FREEDMEN S li UREA U BILL.
The reto of the President of the bill en?
larging the powcrB of the Freedmen's bu?
reau, the telegraphic pnnouncement of which
wnB published yesterday, will hare been re?
ceived by our readers with interest, and, of
coarse, with pleasure. fThere are many con?
siderations to render that act of vast import?
ance. It ie an interposition to proteet ns from
a very great calamity; bat it is also the une?
quivocal acceptance of the issue presented by
the Radical party in Congress. With calm?
ness, composure, the most perfect propriety
of tone and manner, bat with the utmost
firmness, the President has proceeded to ad?
minister the Government upon his theory of
restoration. That theory has been repudiated
by tho majority in Congress. It was conve?
nient for them to treat the Southern States as
out of the Union. It was upon that theory
they could keep them out-in that way hold
the control of CougreEB; and to make their
theory good, they have grasped nt the powers
of the Government itself.
They have presented measures projeoted on
their theory ; they have required the Presi?
dent to approve them; they have required him,
in doing so, to ropudiate his own convictions
to undo his own work; they have loft him no
option, in fact, but to be tho 6lave or the
master of Congress; and we take this veto to
be the distinct announcement of the fact thai,
ho prefers, if compelled to ohoose, to be ita
What may be thc consequences, doos not
yet appear. The Radical party may have
intendod, from the first, tho game of brag,
and, assured that it will bo uusuocessfui, they
may abandon it, and accopt the fact under some
convenient subterfuge. But it is not certain
they will do so. It is not certain they aro
not in earnost-that they do not, in fact, be?
lieve in their ability to storm the Government
-that they have yet tho discretion to shun
the further consequences of collision; or that,
with so much at stake upon thia move, they
have the morai power to renonnce it.
They have ventured upon an act of usurpa?
tion. The fact ie ne unquestionable as was
the act of secession by the South ; their as?
sault was aa clear as was our bombardment
of Fort Sumter. Against it must necessarily
be arrayed the Union sentiment of the country.
That sentiment is now too strong to be resist?
ed. It is stronger now, since tho Southern
States are forced to realise that their fortunes
are indissolubly associated with that Union,
than it ever was before. Unity is now the
paramount fact against which sectionalism
;an never stand ugain. Upon this question
the leaders of the movement now in Congress
san never go before the people. Their politi?
sai fortunes and their power are irrevocably
staked upon the present cast. They now con?
trol Congress; it is not certain that they will
aver have a majority in either House again.
What efforts they are to make must be made
now; and it ?B not certain that from the
present move they will, or oan withdraw, un?
til they have realized the full calamities of
Should they not, the final contest comes upon
this measure. If they shall have the power,
they will paBS tho bill over the veto. That
they have the power is not certain, though it
is said they have ; and when that is done,
?hen comes the crash. The President will,
)f course, reply to the Southern delegations. ;
lu accordance with the theory under which
ie acts, and upon which he will have staked
lie fortunes, the members of these delega
ions are as much membors of the several
louses of Congress as are these who exclude
hera from their 6eats. The President will
tot accept, as the judgment of Congress, an
tct which certain members there assembled
tre able to perform in virtue, only, of this ex
ilusion of others as justly members as them?
selves. Either he is wrong in bia theory
.'ither these States are not in the Union and
)ur delegations are not entitled to admission
w their exclusion is an not which he must
repudiate when the question comes, as it will
thus come, in an official form before him; and
replying to the Sonthern delegations, and re?
fusing to regard as an act of Congress a res?
olution of the present body passed without
them, and refusing to execute the bili, there?
fore, for reason that it will not have been
passed by the necessary authorities of law
it will be for the Radical party in Congress
to make their next move, upon which will
depend conxequemrex ,,f incalculable mo?
Having proceeded sn far, it is not to be
supposed that they will there stop j for the mo?
tives to impel them will be as Btrong as ever.
But it is not easy to perceive how much far?
ther they can advance. Impeachment would
be the most obvions ?tep, but that would be
as inoperative as the passage of the bill over
the Executive veto, if the President shall
disregard the one act of Congress for reason I
that it was uo sufficient act, for the stronger '
reason will he disregard the other, that it ie ?
not only not an act of Congress, hut is the '
utterance of personal and political hostility
against h im; elf.
Nor less important would bo the attempt
to seize thc functions of the Executive and ]
carry the bill, hy any agencies they may I
possess, into effect; the first step in that;
direction would he II: act of ?iolr?ici?. j
which *culd render ncocssa^ the arrest and |
punishment of the offender ; and Bhoi
I neither course he adopted, there would se
to be nothing loft but, by a refusal of i
j propriations, to lock the wheels of G<
[cr?ment, which could only last nntil
othor election. That, in fact, would be hu
form of going beforo tho country upon I
chargo that the President would not lc
faction in Congress take the Government fr
him, upon which they could not staud,
course. No respectable party in the count
however they might solicit power, could
sort so bold a pretext to its attainment; n
regarding, therefore, this veto of tho Pr<
I dent as the beginning of tho CDd, we aro
dined to regard it, also, as virtually iii
upon the whole subject in controversy.
UiriTED STA TES DISTRICT JUDGE.
We are pleased to be ablo to announce t
appointment of GEOKOE S. BRYAN, Esq.,
His Excellency the President of the Unit
States, to the office of District Judge of t
Federal Judicial District of Sonth Carolii
Judge BRYAN has boon too long and t
well known to the citizens of the Stato
render it important to present information
to his history or fitness for thia distinguish
office. Of profound thought, of nmiablo d:
position, and eminently courteous and eons*
ontious, ho cannot fail of boing agreoablo
the profession, while there must be the ge
eral assurance, in thc present gloomy peril
of our fortunes, that ho will discharge tl
duties of that office with perfect justice ai
humanity; and, while profoundly respoctf
of power, ho will not be Usa respectful
the rights and liberties of his fellew-eitizet
In the bestowal of this office upon Judj
BRYAN there has been much propriety. I
bas been a constant and conscientious su
porter of the Government ; and, though h
mind, perhaps, ia more critical than juc
cial-though he may be moro inclined
policy than law-more ambitious of the cha
aoter of a statesman than a jurist-it is n
to be doubted that ho will give to bis offii
tho onergies of his intellect, and disoharg
with distinguished ability, its importa
THE SOUTH CAROLINA RAILROAD.
The meeting of the stockholders of th
South Carolina Railroad, lately held in th
city, was satisfactory, doubtless, to the stocl
holders, and thuse having a direct pecuniar
interest in the reconstruction and operatic
of that important publie work, Bul we ri
gret that it was not the occasion of as muc
information to the public genorally aa migl
have been desired. It may, perhaps, be
question for debate whether the community
without a pecuniary interest in the enterprise
have the right to intervene in its procaedingi
and entertain and express opinions upon tb
proper and efficient management of its affair;
But whether they have that, right or not, the
have that incidental interest in ita eperation
which renders it impossible fur them to b
indifferent to the state of iU progress, or th
modes of its proceedings. It has been accepl
ed as one of the necessary conditions of th
city. Business arrangements of every oho
racter have boen predicated upon the assump
tion that it will afford efficient means of oom
mnnication with the country. It was, in fad
tho undertaking of the proprietors of tha
road that such efficient means of oommuuica
tion should be furnished. And now, whei
the spring business is about to open-whei
tradesmen must sell their goods, if they sel
them at all-wheu the business of the yea;
depends upon the question .whether merchant
from a distance, who are ready to purohasi
goods, shall ho able to receive them-it woulc
havo been of general satisfaction to have re
ceived a statement of the affairs of that norn
pany. A statement was, doubtless, presente*
to the stockholders, but it hue not been pub
lished, and the community is ad much at i
loss as to what they may rely on,as they wert
before the meeting was held. In the lettei
of the President of that road, published by ui
some month or more ngo, there was the pro
inieo that through freight was to be taken tc
Augusta by tho first of February; but that pro?
mise was not fully complied with. Such
freight was not received as early as the pe?
riod indicated, and it is only now, within the
last few dav?, that the readiness to accept it it
announced. To what extent, however, and
under what circumstances it will bo received,
still does not appear. There is an inability,
therefore, to give correspondents a ta distance
full satisfaction on this subject; the inclination
to look for goods elsewhere, and by other
lines of transportation, still exists, to the pre?
judice of our business here; und tho fact is to
be regretted. And our merchants, while la?
menting tho want of necessary communication
with the country, are constrained tu lament
the want, also, nf such information as will
enable thom to determine when full facilities
for communication tuny reasonably bc ex?
In saying this much, vc disclaim the pur?
pose to reflect upon tho officer! in charge of
this road. Wo have not the facts which en?
able us to determine whether they have acted
efficiently or not, and HO loug ius these officers
are approved by the stockholders, who have a
more direct interest in tho matter than we have,
we might hesitate, upon any state of facts, to
express au adversary judgment. Bat wo do
say, with iii? most perfect frankness, that we
wish the reconstruction of this road bad been
more rapid, that it were more complete; linn
mercliaiiU from a distance could find trans?
portation with their goods as they were wont,
to do-in which wishes wo have un doubt
that tho officers of thia road will bearii Iv ci u
cur; and nc do say, also,thnt ?tis boped ami
expect**! <'int measures to the curopleiiou i,f
th: ? -i will be nf-prompt a* -vi., r .
