PRICE FIVE Ci^NTTS.
WASHINGTON, July 5.-The Democratio Sonatora
pnd Congressmen havo issuod an address in favor
of tho Ojuvontion at Philadelphia. National
Union, thoy declaro, should bo tho watchword of
.very man, and they denounce tho Radicals for
persistently refusing to admit the Southern 8tatea
to t ?irosontation, and say that laws havo been
paeni c1 affecting their iutorosts oontrary to the
fun J montai principles of free government. They
urg? A full representation from all tho States and
Teriitories at said Convention, to unito in a spirit
of h i-mouy for the purposo of restoring the Con
Btiu. toual Uuion, and for this purposo only.
Tit?. Honso Cunimittc? on Postoffioes and Post
fiouih havo agrood to report to the Houso tho
?Sen iio Bill authorizing any Telegraph Corn
pan? to construct their lines upon any mail route,
Whether railroad, bridge, or common highway,
and tn take any cable up ou our ahoros, any laws
-of a -tato to the contrary notwithstanding.
F; oin the expressions of members of tho House
eine?, the report of tho ROUBBEAU-GBINNEL,_ Com
-O-it'.-i-, it seems scarcely possible, that the vote o'
two ...irds necessary for expulsion can bo obtain
ed. It is believed that Gen. ROUSSEAU would pre
fer ?-?.pulsion to a public reprimand at the bar of
"the House. His friends contend that the effect of
hib . xpuleion would bu to return him as United
States Senator from Kentucky next winter.
The report of tho Military Board, which was re
cent y in session for over two months, has not yoi
?been approved by tho Secretary of War or by Gen.
QUANT. Thiro are rumors of its being set aside
as unsatisfactory, and a new Board boing conven
ed. It is said that several members of the Board
refused to sign tho report.
WASHINGTON, July 5.-The Committee of Cou
forcii-o on the Tax Bill recommond tho fixing the:
? ?ax on cotton at threo cents per pourd, and giv
ing r.'lroads and gas companies the right to add
on tin; tax to their rates uulil April 80,1867. They
agree to leave the inoomo tax unchanged, tbo ex
emption of $600 being retained.
It is understood that the Southern Repr?senta
tives will Boon issue an address to the people of
the ?S ruth, recommonding the election of dele
gates to tho Philadelphia Convention. They re
gard it as highly important that the South should
-co-operate in the movement, especially aa it is
understood that the Convention ia only for the
restoration of the South to the Union, and not for
4iny party purposo.
WASHINGTON, July 5.-In the Senate the bill to
ropo-I the act retroceding the County of Alexan
dria to the Stalo ol Virginia waa .discussed And
laid over, and the same disposition was ni-do o.

The Senate refused to transfer to tho Secretary
Of War supervisory and other powers over the
?Commiseioner of Indian Affairs, now exercised by
the Secretary of the Interior, by a vote o? 21 to
12. The report of the Conference Committee on
-the Army Bill was agreed to in the Senate.
Nothing of importance was done in ti.o House
.except on the Tariff Bill. SPAULDING, of Ohio,
gave notice that after the Tariff Bill was disposed
of, ho would move to call up tho Report of tho
?Special Committee in the ROUSSEAU-OUINNEM?
*?Tiilr* In \?-.v York.
NEW YORK, July 5. -The meeting at Tammany
Hall jeeterday was largely attended. A loiter
from the President was read, in which he said
that there can be no nobler work thau obliterating
the passions and prejudices which retard union.
W. VOLTEZ, a paiuter in Brooklyn, deliberately
-fired a musket into ? croup of children, killing
one and wounding two.
t? it-ut Fire In l'on tanti, Hie.
POIIT-AND, July 5.'-There was a terrible confla
gration hore yesterday, the wind blowing a galo
at the time. Hie fire originated in Commercial
etreet, ami swept over a space a milo and a half
long by a quarter of a mile wide, destroying
everything in its track. Half of the city was d
etro>ed, including all tho business portion except
the hoavieat business houses. Several churches,
all the newspape ofiiuos, banks, public buildings,
and many private ro-idoucos, wero destroyed.
Fifty houses were blnwD up in tho endeavor to ar
rest the progress of the flames. Tho Custom
Houso, which is f.rr-proof, etcaped. The loss ia
enormous and la turi yet estimated. A thousand
tents have been sent to the houseless poople.
The destruction is so complete that persons can
hardly tell where their homes were.
DETAILS OF TUE FO-TLAND lill-.
PORTLAND, ME., July 5. -AB the details of tiro
great fire come in, they show it to have boen ter
ribly destructive. AU tho newspaper and insur
ance od?eos, bai.ks and hoti la, oigbt cblirchoH,
convents, schools, lawyers' offices, including val

of Na' Irani Express and Transportation Company,
against several Virginia railroads, restraining
them from carr* ing out certain special transpor

CONFEDERATES NOT AMENABLE TO MATE COURTS.
A trial of some importance, growing out of events
connected with the late war, has just been termi
nated at Knoxville, Tennessee, by the acquittal of
the prisoner. The parties tried were four in num
ber, and wore, during the war, officers in tho Con
federate army. They were charged ?iib murder
in having, whilst fitting upon a court-martial,
caused certain citizens of a 8tate to be lunged,
toward tbo close of 1861. The charge against
them was sought to be proved by biiughig their
connection with this c mrt-martial in evidence bo
foro the Court. The verdict, after a long and
careful trial, has been to acquit Iho prisoners,
they all having boen declared hut guilty.
This oase is interesting, Bays (ho New York
Nowa, as showing that officers and privates of tbo
late Confederate army cannot be made amonable
to the State Oour's fur acts committed whilst in
?hat service which were in tho ordinary conreo of
military law. When theso goutlemou were ni rest
ed a year ago. Gen. Grant recommended their re
lease on these grounds. The Stato authorities,
however, refused to comply with this recommen
dation, and since tint timo they havo romuined in
Juil. It is gratifying to record, as wo do iu this
case, the ovidences of a returning sense of justicb
on too part of judges and j irios in cisoa wherein
dofonooleus Confederates aro conoernud.

The aoveral oasos, lately ooourringin the South
ern States, where ofloers of tho Government have
pleaded General Grant's famous order, No. 3, of
last winter, in bar of suits against them, tho Se
cretary of War has directed the military not to
l interfere, on the ground that the act of Congress,
umandatory of tho lindens corpus act, affords am
ple jurisdiction to the Courts to act in the prem
ises, as well as guarantees ample protection to tho
ofifcers formerly shielded by that ord jr.
A Vault to ii Klee Plantai Ion.
Messrs. Editors : Yiolding to ihe ?solicit at ions of
a friend, I played truant on Monday last, and in
stead of procooding towards tho usual scouo of
my daily labors, I went to tho depot of the
Charleston an J Savannah Railroad, whero a num
bor of gentlemen,, planters, heil alroady congre
gated, waiting to cross. The boat took us over
tho Ashloy, making connection with tho Accommo
dation Train, which runs ovory Monday, uniu
eumbered with freight,-so as to ruu fast, and
givo planters as much timo as posaiblo to seo thoir
crops, and roturu to town in tho evening.
I had not hoon over this road since the present
crop has boon planted, and, of courso, noted a
considerable difference in the looks of the coun
try. There was still tho same entire absence of
all kinds of livo stock-tho samo tall, lono, brick
chimneys, showing where the cruel hand of war
had shed its blight. Settlements along tho road
aro still few and far botwoon. Occasionally, how
ever, tho heart was cheered by tall green rows of
waving cora. Hero and there a long low plain,
intersected with a net-work of banks and ditches,
showed that thero is rice in the old land yet. Cot
ton, too, both long and short s tapio, now and then
served to remind us of the dopartod glory of this
once regal potentate.
At Adams' Run our esteemed townsman, Gov
ernor AIEEN, loft the oars, en route for his planta
tion on Jehossee Island. And one by one our com
pany left, till thore were bnt fow of us, whon wo
orossed the Ashepoo, and ourselves got out at
The weather was very fine, though rather warm
for walking over a plantation. Tho cool nights
we have had for the last two weeks havo consider
ably retarded the development of the cotton, and
therefore were unwelcome to the planter, how
ever much he might personally enjoy the cool
evening breeze after a long, hot day's work.
We (that is, my compagnon de voyage ond my
self) first looked at some short cotton, pretty fair
in some parts, and very small again in others.
The seed originally planted proved worthloss, and
did not come up. This complaint comos from all
sections of the country. The cotton thus lost
nearly a mouth of valuable growing time. Tho
land had to be ploughed over, and good eeed
sown instead of that which would not sprout. We
saw some fine corn here also, and the entire crop,
both corn or cotton, perfectly clean.
Wo next drovo off to another plantation, whero
the same planters are engaged in cultivating rice.
On our way thither I saw several patches of corn,
"awful in the grass ;" some so much so that it
seemed doubtful which was the crop and which
the volunteer. In others the grass had choked
the corn entiroly out of existence Tho crop will
have to be "thrown away." "Whose corn is
that?" I asked. "That's nigger corn." This
brought to mind the old anecdote, doubtless
familiar to most of mjr readers, of the preach?.-.
a negro hoeing his corn patoh. "You should not
work ou the Sabbath day," quoth tho holy man.
"But, massa, I ain't got no udder time for work
em." "Truet to Providence," replied the preach
er. "Oh no, m ass a, can't do dat. Providence
awful in de grass hisself,"-at the same time
pointing to an adjoining patoh belonging to one
of his fellow-sorv-uts, named Providence.
As wo passed on, J presently saw somo very flue
corn, and afterward* equally fine rice, which I was
surprised to learn also belonged to some of the
froedmen on the place. In this connection I havo
ano?her anecdote bearing thereupon. A gent?o
man I knew in one of the adjoiuing parishes, like
many other planters, allowed each of his
slaves a patch of ground, for corn, rice or
potatoes,-whatever suited the fancy of the
slave. (There was no Freedtnen'- Bureau
then.) This patch Pompey, Cuffy and Caisar
worked in their own time,-i. e., after the daily
.ask ?Vas done, which orton was by 1 or 2 P. M.
Every Saturday afteruoon the planter gave them
the use of tho mules and ploughs to turn ovor
their crop. But, of courso, this work was optional
with tho negroes. One of them, Prince, it appears,
had very little idea of optional work, and as a mat
tor of course he soon "got in the grass." So one day
Prince goos to his master, saying: "Mussn, Inl'ays
works your crop, and has my task dun as well as do
t'nddera, an ray crop is all ?lo timo in de grass."
?'No wonder, Prince. The reason is very plain.
You do your task because you know you have to
do it, and you do not work your crop because you
are not compelled, and have not sufficient energy
to do it without compulsion." "Yes, niasea, dat'a
BO. But I wants my crop to bo an cloau as de
t'uddera ; I don't nant deni niggers talk about mo
an my orup ; and I wants you to rack me do 'em."
"Very well, Prince; hut rt-momber if you continue
to neglect it after this, I -hall have to punish
you." "Jos BO, massa ; It I does'nt ?ork em, you
whip me." The new arrangement aoswercd admi
rably for about a week, ?hen Prin.o relapsed into
hia old grassy ways. Ho ro- tiveJ a warning to
no effect ; another, which siso passed uoheoded.
The third (as is the case when French newspapers
fall under the bao of the censor), was followed by
suspension- i. e. Princo was lied up and flogged,
for his own good, of course, and by his own volun
tary stipulation. This be knew and understood
full well. But Prince did not like this way of
spending his holiday, so ho informed hie master
that he had changed his mind, and forthwith with
drew tho authority he had delegated to him ; and
Prince's paleh was grassy as before, and he re
mained a "mean nigger."
But we have now arrived at our place of desti
nation: Dr. D-Uo.Vu placo on the Ashepoo, at
preseut leased to our e-icrs-etio friends, Messrs.
SAOOETT and SPZIOHT?. These t vo gontlomen
aro very txton.ivc-ly engaged iu the culture of rice,
planting ou this, as well au on two or three adjoining
placet?; altogether some fivo hundred acres of rice,
about one hundred and fifty in otton (shirt
ataplo), with corn, potatoes, otc, in proporti-D.
These plantations h ad not been under cultiva
tion for several yeais, and thus requin -I no small
outlay of labor to prepare thom for tho crop.
The contracts were not made with tho froedmen
till t-ome timo in March; and one of tho places, I
am informed, ?vi n-.t taken in till April. Hot-,
in this short time, tho plantations have been put
in such thorough order, and tho crops -o fur ad
vanced, I cannot understand.
It is truo thoro is an abundance ol' labor, both
of man and beast-about ono hundred frocdmen,
who, I am glad to learn, have boen working ad
mirably well. Not one of thom has left his em
ployers; nor havo tho luttor been compelled to
dischargo any of thom. I saw many of them,
both men and women, as thoy carno in from their
work in tho field, lookiug comfortablo aud con
tented. On iuquiry, I ascertained that although
it was but2j P. IL, tho day's work was done, and
all wcro going to thoir housos. Not uufioquoiitly
they got through their taako st;" earlier in the
I saw rico hero iu evory stago of progress
some, tho greater part, with tho "harvest water'
on it, and somo again not a month old. Tho en
tire crop was cloan, and showed as Uno a stand as
I havo ever soen in tho beginning of July.
At this soason planters aro very much in tho
habit of teasing each othor about "tho grass."
.Stale jokos about snakes and snake-bites aro re
hashed, and dishod up fresh ovory year. The
rice planters to the "south'ard" say the grass is
so bad on Coopor Uiver this year, that, recently,
on a gentloman's visit to a rica plantation in that
vicinity, asking whero the rico wa?, tho attend
ant frecdman got on his knees, and with both
his bands separated the superincumbent grass,
saying, "Here, massai sheo'm? Hero's do ricol"
I do not vouch for tho authenticity of tho story.
To be "in the grass" heretofore always was con
sidered fatal io the reputation of a plan tor. Pub
lic opinion appoars to bo still the same, although
tho nooossary labor cannot now bo compelled,
nor in many cases procured.
Wo hear those complaints overy day. Tho su
perabundance of rain this soason considerably
injured the crop directly,-prevented it from being
worked as much or as regularly as would other
wise have been done; while at tho same timo tbo
grass had a longer respite, with the pluvial stimu
lus snperadded. "Fighting tho grass" is there
fore now the trouble with planters all over the
country. Many of the Island crops are very poor
from these causes; this is also tho case in the up
country, from what wo learn. Thero will not be over
a fourth of a cotton crop raised this year, accord
ing to tho best judges; and perhaps not over one
sixth of tho rice crop. Fortunato those, there
fore, who have a "good stand."
But wo havo walked enough now over the rice
banks in the noon-day sun, on this hot second o
July, and mnst tbiok of going cut to the railroad
ou our way back to the city by the accommoda
tion train. Hore como the cars, and we havo a
hearty shako of the hand from our worthy friends,
Superintendent HAINES and Conductor CHOVAT,
both officials very popular with tho passengers on
the road. Off we go, Charleston-ward, al the rate
of tweuty miles an hour. The road is smooth,
and riding on it pleasant; but I am surry to leam
thc-e are sorious jolts in tho mauaguniuut of Mho
fe?S tf ^ .qtf* 8xQn#fiPVe*9 ?t?MRftm:
The Charleston and Savannah Railroad is one
of the most important thoroughfares in our State;
absolutely essential for the accommodation of per
sons living along and near its course-a-pecially
now, when thoy are stripped of draught animals,
and would be absolutely holplees without the
railroad. The eame reasons that were good for
building it, aro now doubly good in advocacy of
its reconstruction and early completion. The road
ia of much greater importance now than it has
ever been, to the development of tho resources of
the State, and to open now channels to trade, for
which large bids are made by somo of our neigh
boring ports. Tho present direction has accom
plished much, and deserve groat oredit for having
built fifty miles of it with the slender resources at
thoir command. The road runs noarlv to Salfc
ketehie; and in repairing this section, from
Charleston up, a great deal of labor bad to be ex
pended to reconstruct, or rather bud i anew,
bridges and trestles.
There is a difficulty between the stockholders
and the bondholders of the road, which now
clogs the money wheels; and until this is settled,
there cannot be any energetic progresa on a large
seale iu the rehabilitation of the road. 1 b ho n Id

that's all." "Do you 0*11 that uothlng seriousr" said
AII-HN-THY; *'I tell you, sir. that whon these two or
