of the Direct Tax.
WABIUNOTOW, Juno 20.-The Secretary of the Treasu
ry, in a communication to tho Honso of Boprosenta

tion of tho operation of tho law of 1861, that an addi
tional enactment authoilzlng the assumption, by the
Southern Stuten respectively, of tho remainder of tin
Direct Tax duo from each, would, In vlow of tho pro
eent impoverished condition of their people, prevent
much hardship in individual casca, and savo from con
fiscation the property of many persona, against whom
tho Government has no cause of complaint, whllo no
public Interest would bo injuriously affected by the
Change. He states that, should this policy be adopted,
tho collection of taxes under tho presont system might
and ought to be dlBcontlLued until an opportunity for
assumption 1B afforded. Whether the amount realized
from the resales of proporty bid in for tho Ooverninont,

There waa quite a largo meeting of ladies at the Ma

jubilant at the brilliant success of ihslr anniversary on
Saturday last.and of course felt gratelul to the many kind
friends who saw that nothing waa wanting to accom
plish the desired object. It la a surprising fact that the
entire display did l.ot cost the Association a dollar.
A kind gentleman friend furnished lamber for the
speakera' atage; other kind banda erected It. The Milli
House and Charleston Hotel Livery Stables, the Nation
al and Southern ExpreBB Companies, and Mesara. Ge

ern Ballroad Companies fnrnlahed passengers transpor
tatton, charging twenty-five centa for xousd trip, an?!
giving the proceeds to the Association. Merchants oi
the Bay gave twine, and Bing street furnished hoopi
for wreaths ead ribbon for mourning badgee. Th
ladles work with oommendable zeal, and all who ha?
flowera and evergreens, gave them with a wlillngnea
that challenges admiration.

NEW YORK LETTER.
[FBOM O-B OWN f-J-BES-ONDENT.]
NEW Tonn, Juno 14.-Your correspondent writes with
spirits much deproisod-said depression of spirits arises
from a corresponding depression in the money market
not in the general money market, however, but m a most
particular money market-in a personal (or a purse
o-al) and private money markot, in what we may callan
individual pocket oxebequor. "Moultrie," the wise, the
shrowd, tho knojring, in whom tboro is no verdancy,
who has over professed to be au fait In all tho mysteries
of this groat metropolis, has had his pocket picked. At
cloven o'clock last night, or rather between eleven and
twolve, whilst standing Uko HAMLET'S father's ghOBt
"upon the platform" of ono of the Third avenuo cars,
tho deod waa done-done well and quickly, and wtlldono
when t'waa done. How accomplished? In a manner
moat refreshingly simple, thus: Correspondent's hat
knocked off-hat grabbed at and captured and roplaced;
hat again kuookod off in tho crowd-again captured and
replacod; correspondent's hand KW-HM pocket, *___?
it minua pocket boob; suspecta man next to him, but
dar-? not charge him with the theft lest he be prosecuted
for damages if mistaken. "Moultrie" gets off at
Fourteenth-street (and thief somewhere else),
and wends his way boarding house ward aadly
whistling with plaintive trill .'Still io genUy
o'er ma stealing," oonsoling himself, howevor,
with the reflestion that the thief wiU be Bomowhat dis
appointed when he examines minutely the contenta oi
the porte-monnaie of a poor newspaper correspondent.
Let aU take warning, and be it proclaimed far and wide
from the house-tops; aye, let It be proclaimed by he
ralds innumerable and trumpet-tongued, that the only
way to avoid having one's pooket relieved of its burden
here In this olty 1? to keep It ever Innocent of pecuniary
burden, tlma-pleoes, or the like.
The solea-) of pioking pockets has been raduoed to
such a delicate nlooty of manipulation here of late, tbat
the great mass of the people have wisely resolved to
carry about with thom aa little money aa possible; and
some Ingenious and enterprising son of the soil baa in

in general, and my piokpooket In partiouli_, who, If he
haa over read Othello, will bear in mind the Unes,

been several oases brought up in court for the purpose
of testing the constitutionality of the Excise Law.

where a servant girl, named SARAH KULT, died of tho

therefore, is in our midst, wherefore some people are

A most carious case of monoman?a has just boon
brought to li ght here : a German, hailing from Hesse
Darmstadt, has boon, for tomo timo past, plyiag bis
trade as a barber in this city ; a fow days ago he
attempted to cut the throat, instead of beard, of a cus
tomer. The case is as folioWH : In tho days of his
youth the Gorm an lad took a great Interest in tho stu Jy
of a work on the Physiology of Racos, by CORNKMUS
OSMERDKR- ; he learned from this work that "an
affinity exists between certain racos of men and certain
classes of animals ; that every human being bun his
i double in the beast creaUon ; tbat the two possess
nature and nature exactly alike," Ac, ko. Aftor this
the German, in pursuing his studies, learned that by
certain oxporlments mado upon tho blood of persons
and animals, Important deductions could be made,
wherefore he first went to work and philosophically cut
tho throats of several dogs, cats, birds, ko., and next
studied the profession of a barber, in order to facilitate
his search for knowledgo and a little human blood. He
at first contented himself with acoidontaUy (on purpose)
making Uttle innocent gashes in the china and throats
of his customers, but, a few days ago, made up his mind
to go into tha wholeaalo department of the business,
and ont a customer's throat out and out Tho customer
on whom he tried tho experiment happened to bo a
beardless little boy, who was about, blushingly, to take
his first shave, bnt who, soon discovering what was to
be tbe bloody natara of the shave, jumpod op from tho
barbarous chair and fled from the shop, leaving "his
hat behind him." The philosophical barber wett to
the police headquarters, gave himself up. Informed the
Chief Justice that ho was Insane, and desired to bo
locked up in a Lunatlo Asylum. The beardless little
boy went home beardless, haUeas, nnsbavon and un
shorn, and will probably give np aU idea of a public
ahave for some Ume yet to ooma.
Hon. George A. THKN_O_M left here yesterday for Cin
clnati, with a delegation of merchants of yonr city, ou
tho Blue Ridge Railroad business. It Is to be hopod
that success will crown these offorts in behalf of the
establishment of that which cannot faU to bo productive
of resulta the most highly beneficial to the Interests of
The argument as to the conaUtutkmaUty (or uncon
sUtuUonality) of the Excise Law baa been going on for
several dava past In the Court of Common Pleas, but
no decision haa yet been given; It Is hoped, however,
that one will bo rendered at an early day.
Yesterday morning had been set apart for the contin
uation of the examination of Col. RonxBTs (Fenian) be
fore the United States Commissioner, but tho counsel
on the part of the Government has abandoned proceed
ings "In consequence of the intimidation of witnesses
and the difficulty he had met with In procuring ovi
denoe;" ho, ho woven? stated that it hi his Intention to
submit the case to the action of the Grand Jury. Col.
ROBSBTS was discharged, and the Fenians assembled
near oheored most los lily. The Fenians are not quite
dead yet, that is to say, tbey ara dead but not very
dead. Thoro are still some rumors-not exactly of war
but of daahing lltUe raids going on in Oanada. Never
theless, the Fenians are pretty well dead after all.
There no longer exista a shadow of a doubt as to tho
fact that the Asiatic Cholera has obtained a foothold in
thla city; four new cases were reported yesterday to the
Board of Health. Where a victim Is attacked hy this
dread disease, thoro are at least nine chano?M ont of tan
against recovery, and death generaUy ensues in a very
short Ume after the appearance of the disease. Should
it spread over the olly and become regularly an ?pi
d?mie, ti will be a more terrible scourge even than war

. We have received the following account of an affa:
? which ocourred lately in Hoath Carolina, whioh Ula
tratas the character of the despotism nnder which ti
" people of that State are living. The writer is a ganU
man for whose honor and veracity we will readll
kt vouch :
A Federal soldier was hilled at Edgefield Court Horn
en tha ?th of March, under tho followingoironmitanooi
o A do ta chea ont of the 6 th Regular cavalry arrived thi
o morning, the first day of the spring term of tho Cou:
of Common Pleas and galos day. A considerable crow
' from the country had assembled, and ?fier the adjoari
"> ment of the ooart in the evening, two oit-sen?, Bou
_ ware and Coleman, were ta'klng rather abova ti
uaual voice on the puollo aqnare, when a drunk?
18 soldier from this cavalry detachment approaoh-i
d and ordered them in a rude manner to ato
u their noise. The citizens ceased their convc
. gatton for some moments, as if for tho purpose i
a avoiding tho soldier, and again resumed, He steppi
of betweed them and pushed them apart vlolenUy, ai
,_ aaid, "If yon do not shut your mouths I will slap yo>
faces, G-d d-n you," and moved on. Coleman sal
10 "Well, what are you going to slap our faces for V ai
as the soldier turned, seised bim by the collar and draggy
to bim a few paces, when Coleman, who had a stiff leg, f?
to the ground. The soldier placed his kneo upon 0.
10 breast, having drawn his , latol and struck athis h es
it Several gen?emon, among others General R. G Dunn
)T vant and Dr. William Burt, approached him and begg
.., the soldier not to hart tho man, as he had done no thin
"* and in response he wontd brandish his pistol and si
to "O-dd-n you, go away,or I will ?hoot you," and
i0 course no one touched bim. Coleman, who waa still i
hla back, oodeavorlDg to extricate himaelf, appealed
ry the bystanders, and said, "GenUemen, will yon peru
this man to murder me for nothing!" Tho soldi
thereupon seised him by tho hair, raised his bead fro
the ground and shot him through the back of his no4
la __% thlsjuncturo, when It was evident that he intended
?. murdor an __oc?Dt man, whom ho had so diabolically i
saulted without provocation, a youno man drew his Dis
to! and fired upon tho aoldlor, who J.imD"d and ron to
wards the quarter* of the garrison. OdoTs? roeT am
fired two or threo timca at the soldier na ho ran and the
young man fired twice. No one elso fired or interfered ]
Tho Boldlor foil, altor running about Rovonty five yards' l
Dr. Burt tendered bia assistance, and found that ho ba
boon struck but onco In tho chest, ovidoutly tho first
shot of the young mon. No roslstanco or insult had
been offered to any soldier of tho United Statos that day
by any citizen, and everything had gonoon quietly until
tilla brutal and unprovoked and unnecessary assault
was made upon an unoffending citizen. Tho Bcrgeant
in chargo of tho detachment of tho 26th Ohio Volun
teer?! marched his moo on the square, cursed and de
nounced tho people as d-d coward? and niurdorera, and
threatened to ehcot any man who opened his month.
Upon the clrcumataucea being explained to him after
wards by Gen?. Butler und Gary, bo oxprossed hlmso f
aatlaOod, and said that the soldier deserved to boro beou
killed, and tho sergeant commanding tho cava'ry de
tachment did likewise. The sergeant ofTorod to forward
for tho information of too commanding general, a
statement Betting forth the facia a? tboy occurred. Tho
Btatcment was prepared Betting forth the above facts,
slgnod by Oonorals Gary, Butler, Dunnovant, Dr. Win.
Burl, tho derk and sheriff of tho district, and several
others of the most roapootablo gentlemen in the com
niuiilty who wore eye-wltnesso?, was forwarded and
waa rocelved. Two or threo weeka after tble a squadron
of cavalry wai sent to Fdgefleld Court House, under
abarge of Major Alexander Moore, of General Sickles'
ataff. General Gary and Mr. 8. B. Griffin, lawyers and
gentlemen of the highest respectability, were arrested
without being Informed of the charges upon which tiiey
wero arrested, placed under a strict guard, and no in
tercourse was allowsd them to apook with their
friends, not even to speak to them. They
were hurried off at Light and were made to travel
all night to Columbia, placed In a loathsome, Al? y
guard house, whore they learned for tho first time
that they wore arrested upon tho affidavit ot a
negro, a notoriously bad character, to the effect that
they bad fired upon tho Federal aoldlor who was killed
on the 6th of March, and encouraged others to do so,
when the truth waa that Mr. Griffin was not on tho
street, but In the court house, out of view, and that
General Oary not only did not fire or onoourago others
to do ao-for ho had no pistol or other deadly weapon
upon his person-but was very Influential In allaying
the exoltement whlob the outrageoua conduct of the
soldier hsd created. These gentlemen wore sent from
Ool-ambla to Oharleaton, placed in felon'a celia in the
Charleston Jail, and were kept in this way for
several daya bsfore they could be released upon
parole. It Is due to Brevet Major-General Ames,
who commanded the western dlstrlot of (South
Carolina, embracing Edgefleld, that upon the matter
being represented by gentlemen whoso vernelly and
character wero unimpeachable, that he rdeaaed thom
upon parole after they had been confined for soveral
days In Charleston, Intending to permit them to return
home, when Major Moore gavo him an order as the rep
r?sent?t! vo of General Sickles, commanding the Depart
ment, to forward them to Columbia. This matter hsd
all been explained to Major Moore bofore ho made tho
arrest, by gentlemen of the highest respectability, yet
without investigation and upon the evidence of an ir
responsible vagabond negro, he arrested and subjected
them to the treatment of Mons and convicts. (The
foregoing foots can bo established by any number of
affidavits of our best citizens )
This cavalry was sent to Edgefleld, as it is alleged, to
put down armed bands of bushwhackers, guerrillas,
raldera, ko., who, it was said, were infeatlng the coun
try. Intimidating, flogging, robbing and murdering
negroes and Northern men, who were "peaceable. Bet*
tier?. " They were represented to number from twenty
five to two hundred and fifty, ' under the command of
an ex-Bebsl Major." The facta are these : A few men
bad been left in the oountry, belonging to other Statei,
by the two armies, Johnston's and Sherman's, as they
were paaslng through the State, irresponsive, idle and
dosparate, and passlog themselves off sa horse traders
from Kentucky and Tennessee, had impose! upon soma
of our oltizens, sad had committed aoms outrages.
There were probably not more than four or five of tbese
men at any one time in Edgefleld Dlstrlot. They would
paaa rapidly from one side to toe other, and were not
sympathized with, or eocouragod, or harbored by our
citizens, vrhoii tholr real character waa developed ; On the
contrary, there waa great Indignation felt against
them, and steps were In progresa by the citizens them
sel ve? to drive them out or exterminate them, when this
cavalry waa sent into the country. The negroes had
been taught by a systematic, studied effort ou the cart
of Northern omltaarlos, incendiaries and mistaken
philanthropists, and by the negro troops who had been
stationed among them, that their former owners wire
their worst enemies, and hence they were alienated,
distrustful, not unfrequently Insulting to those who
were their natural ann beat friends. It is upon the
evldenoe in the main of these ignorant, duped and
alienated people, that this Major Moore has arrested
and sent to a fdon's cell some of the very best and most
lnoffendiog citizena of the country, men of known
probity of character, of the highest resoectabUity, and
lnnocont of any offence against the Unitod States Gov
ernment, and who are Incapable of euch disgrocAful
conduct as consciously harboring or encouraging any
body of men banded together for toe purpose of dis
turbing the peace and good order of aoolety.
By the unfair ayatem of eaplonaga which he has
adopted, and which ia too often adopted by the repre
sentatives of the Federal Government, and which
would have done credit to the Spanish inquisition, he
could undermine the character of the moat respectable
family in the State of New York, and convict any com
munity of the most helnoua offenoes, whlob, of course,
would bo Imaginary. He baa even gone further; he, in
one casa at least, tied up a frtedman, stretched at full
length by the arms, for four honra at a time, to extort
evidence against his former master. Humanity shud
ders and civilization is shocked at such conduct, and
yet this ia the humanitarian representative of philan
thropie radicalism rent among the Southern people to
teach them mannora and morale. His soldiers, not un*
frequently maddened with liquor, raided over the coun
try arresting peaceable, law-abiding oitlzena, insulting
them aud their families, and robbing and plundering
them under the pretence that they have been guilty of
harboring bushwhackers, and guilty of the graveat
offencea against toe Government.

FELL upon tho fatal field of Beam's Station, in to?
ill-planned aaiamt upon tkat point, on the 2lst of Au

under tho firmest conviction of right, LEMUEL M
PHILIPS, a private lu Company E, 16th Beglment, S
O. Vo s , in tho 39th year of nia age, leaving a wife nat
three young children to mourn his loas; to wait mooth
after month for too lingering footatep that never carno
to realise at last, in time, the hardening of their doubt!
and fears for his safety Into the saddest certainty of bli
The deceased was possessed of all those natural tralU
of disposition which, giving a zent to social Intercourse
form the basis of all solid and enduring friendship
while In the f ?nally clr?lo they make their possessor tbi
binding centre around whom all other affect ion s sprint
and cluster and confidingly repose. Manly he waa, an?
yet never intruding on the rights of othara; of d?licat?
sensibility, and yot not inconsiderate of the fedlDga o
o thors ; keenly alive to what waa noble, and upright, ant
lair, and Scornful o' hat waa unjust, and mean, an?
low; affectionate and > et not blind to duty. His waa, ii
flam, one of those characters which seem to need bo
religion to beautify and adorn; which wo naturally loci
lor to glide by an easy gradation into religious cbarac
ter, and which often seems to be waiting for aomo ex
traordinary occasion to fuse all these amiable traita to
? lather Into elevated character, and to cast them lnt
be sublimated mould of true religion.
In the last dying atrngglo of a rained and rlghteou
causa, that awful opportunity, so ever present on th
tented field, for balancing with clear and dlapasslonat
Judgment too overwhelming Importance of apiritui
interests over earthly, carno to him on the battle-trroun
in "the still small voice," wblch whispered of the coi
s tant nearness of death, and of the necessity of prepari
lion for it; and under Ita power to transform, to di
vdop, to elevate, he learned to rciUss the absolute n?
COBSlty of personal religion, too necessity of a confe:
sion of Christ before men. That stite of a renew?
mind and heart waa but preparatory to another-ti.
second and saving step of the Spirit's holy work, the di
termination to consecrate too remainder of lila life to tt
salvation of his soul. Why he was so early called froi
earth, before his newly born faith had been allowed '
prove Iteelf ay tho riper fruits of the Spirit we do n1
know, but we know that he Is safe. "Wo know that t
things work together for good to them who love God,
