WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 9, 1866.
WADE HAMPTON AND GEN. SHERMAN.
Wo : published, some days since, the manly
letter of General HAMPTON to Senator REV
.JERDY-'JOHNPON, denying the cowardly impu
tation of General SHERMAN, that it was by
his orders that ' Columbia was burned. It
will be remembered that General HAMPTON
asked Mr. JOHNSON that a committee should
be appointed to investigate the matter, and
tendered himself ready to prove the ?truth of
his statements. The reading of the letter in
the ?Senate seems to have produced the same
sensation that the'flutteririg of a red ?rag does
upon? flock of gobblers. There was -a gen
eral -spreading ?of feathers and swelling of
wattles. The Idea that "u> rebel'*' should ask
the1-Senate to do-him justice so far as to per
mit hiei to expose to its satisfaction-a histor
ical fafieehood, was treated as a great -outrage
on that Hon?itive body. There woe a .great
outcry made aga?uBt General HAMPPON and
a unaatmouB determination expressed to.igtve
no heed to his proposition. The elanor had
its effect, and Mr. JOHNSON deemed it con
eistent with a proper nenne of duty and -man
hood ?to withdraw the application of'one
whom io knows to bo to-day as par?, coura
geous and honorable a gentleman as ?thoro is
un the whole country.
It is, of conree, of little use for us to ?peck
cf the sighted manner in which the gallant
General'? letter-was received by the Senate.
We only ?call attention to it as another ii lus
tration of ?the fact that, not content with being
ox the winning sido in the late war, a ?certain
clesB of people, who did-none of the fighting,
have determined that the history of the strug
gle shall bo manufactured to order, and 4?
unit a particular matkot. As a Bul ti more-ex
change-say?, witnesses whose evidence would
notihavo baten listened to by a single man |
upon a jury having any knowledge of their !
liveo.aud character, LAY O been examined by
hundreds, by military court? and Congree-l
sional Committees, and their testimony has!
been given to the publie and accepted by a!
large number of people as true. Atiy smooth-'
.tonguod-fiouundcal who will swear,to the ex-,
istence of untold iniquiti?%e in the South will
be heard by the hour, bat when ao injured
man desisee to refute a falsehood be is met
with a torrent of abuse, eisnply because he
-was a soldier .under General LEE.
it can be proven, as conclusively as any
other fact can be, that federe! troops passed
through Columbia some three hours before a
fire was kindled, and abat by federal troops
the Are was kindled, and that hy Federal
troops die city was burned. It juay be that
General SHERMAN was not olose to the town
when it waa fired, and has been imposed
upon. If so, he should, if he be a true maa
and soldier? be the first .one to invite an in
vestigation. Whether he does this or not, we
rest in the conviction that, sooner or later, the
matter will be made elear to all men,
The Savannah Herald, of the 5tb, in an ar
ri?le headed "Where is the Cincinnati and
Charleston Railroad ?" asks us if we will in
form it where we get the authority for de
nominating the project of a railroad from
Cincinnati to Charleston, "The Cincinnati and
Charleston Railroad." The report we pub
lished from the Cincinnati papers wns styled
in the journal we clipped it from, as the
"Southern Railroad Project," but, aB that
project was for the building of a road from
Cincinnati to Charleston, via Knoxville, wo
changed the heading, as it should be. We
are not aware that any "projeot" looking
towards Savannah directly, has been contem
plated. We are under the impression that
the City of Charleston, as well as our State,
has subscribed a very largo amount to the
Road, and we do not know of the City of Sa
vannah having done so.
If our Savnnnah friends desire a direct
sonnection with Cincinnati, wo certainly hnvo
ao objootion ; and wo preBumo we aro quite
?B well acquainted with tho faot, as cither
our Goorgia noighbors or the peoplo out
West, thal thero aro othor seaports in tho
South besides CbarloBton. But wo havo yot
to learn that Savannah has any direct ititoroBt
in the railroad project to connect Charleston
and Cincinnati-either by tbo Knoxvillo or
tho Paint Rock route. If our -worthy con
temporary can convinco us differently, wo
shall be willing to confess our error in styling
tho report reforrod to na tho " CHARLESTON
AND CINCINNATI RAILROAD PROJECT."
NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN.
A London correspondent of one of tho
Eastern journals montions that a btoamcr had
reoently made a trial trip in tho Thames, pro
pelled without either paddle wheel or eorew,
the principle of propulsion being called the
" Hydraulic Propeller." Water taken in at
the bow of tho vessel, by aimplo maohinery
itself -worked by steam-by being ejeotod at
the stern, is mado to do the work.
Now it appears this is not the first experi
ment, by any means, of the samo method of
propulsion in the Thames. A boat, the in
vention of a southern engineer, the Ftrgt'nian,
JAMES RUM BET moved by the same process
or motive power, was tried on the Thames in
February, 1793, with a speed attained of four
miles to the hour, against wind and tide. He
had, however, previously tried the same motor
on the Potomac ia 1787 with success, despite
imperfectly made machinery. While his
English boat was being built RUMSEY died,
and for lack of his personal interest, proba
bly, the contrivance came to naught.
Previously, BKKNORII.I.I,IIU eminent French
mathematician, had suggested very much the
same principle; and Dr. FRANKLIN intro
duced his ideas to the American public after
JOHN FITCH had started the notion of steam
propulsion. TJndor FRANKLIN'S patronage a
society was formed in Philadelphia to foster
and promoto RUMSEY'S motor, and sent him
to Europe. FITCH'S steam-paddle boat was a
regular packet on tbe Delaware in 1730, but
failed for want of patronage. FULTON carno
Inter, and under the influenco of his successes
FITCH'S experiments have been comparatively
forgotten. Wo shall await with interest for
the experiments with this English TOV?val of
RCMSEY'S adaptation of the suggestion of
WENDELT. PHILLIPS, of Boston, is the real
leader of the Radical movement, by virtue of
his having more brainB and ?nore courage
than any of tbe rest of the party. He does
'its thinking, and directs its policy and action.
'In this view, the following programme which
he -has ?just dictated, is important-it indi
cates to what issue and complexion the Radi
cals will come at last in the fight against the
Constitution of the country, which is defended
by the ?President and his friande :
"Our true policy is tbia: Let Congress plainly
announce its belief that no State lately in rebel
lion ia fit to be ?readmitted to .Congress. Let it
lay down the principio that mo one sholl ever be
admitted-ezcept itc-s'.ablishes universal, or at leas:
impartial sujfragr, a'-d then let Congress adjourn.
Every day it continues in session, jeopards this
?2 re at etvuse. It ?act/ be boughL,\bullied or deceived.
All tends that way ?while it is in session, exposed
to Admicistrative influence. Chico adjourned, let
the linos he distinctly drawn, and go to work to
meet 1883 in earnest; tho interval between noa
and the next ?lections, State,'National and Presi
dential, is nono too long for- t4to work. Tba trea
eon of President.'Johnson, and the impossibility
of impeaching him, loavesno.ttopo of any earlier
settlement. It i ? jest as well, -and much safer, ta
acknowledge tbia. To adjourn and go to the peo
ple on this issue ie uaving lime. Tn this way,
spite of the President, the whole frnit of the wai
may yet be saved. With Oke lines distinctly
drawn, the fight above-board and acknowledged
the issuet&irTy presented, and every Congressmau
stumping his o*n l?tate, tim nation may yet he
founded and built -up on impartial and absolute
justice. ?Our New-England air will save some ol
our HenaAcra at least from theoompromiso mala
ria of Peoausylvania Avenue.

CHENERAL SHERIDAN AND THE RECON
far. WABstnnnNE, member of Congress
from Illinois, reported 'last week, from tbe
Committee on Reconstruction, a batch of tes
timony aa to the ?tate of'feeling at the South,
the condition of theoegroesj and HO an ; among
which is a communication from-Gea. SHERI
DAN, >ia response io A serie? <nf interrogations
propounded to him -by the ?Committee. Geo.
SHERMAN'S report eeems to be written io a
fair spirit of candor and impartiality, and is,
upon the whole, favorable to the South.
There is one passage in it worthy of the ape
oial attention of the Committee, ana of those
who think that legislation for tbe negro
should be the exclusive business of Congress.
Replyiog to a question ne to the ?apaoity of
the negro, he says, among other things : " I
believe the best thing that Congress or the
States can do, is to legislate as little as possi
ble in reforenoe to tbe colored man, beyond
giving bim security in person and property."
THE CALVESTON (Texas) papers say that
the cotton crop is promising. More has been
planted than ever before in one year; muoh
of it Bilk cotton, approximating to sea island.
Tho wheat orop will probably be the largest
ever reaped. Real estate has greatly ad
vanced; tenements and lots are selling for
more than three times what they cost throe
years ago. Travellers in northern Texas re
port that farmers are getting on very well,
with abundance of meats and breadstuffa.
Trade is good, and the grain market is rapid
ly filling np by large importations of oom
from New Orleans. Tbe ireodmen are said
to be doing vory well.
