VETO OF THE FREEOMEN'8 BOBEAD BILL.
Washinoton, July 16_Tho President has re
turned the Frccdmen's Bureau Bill to the House
without his signature. Ho saya that the legisla
tion it proposes is not consistent with the welfare
of tho country, and that it falla clearly within the
reasons assigned in his voto message on a similar
moasuro in February. He refers to that docu
ment for his objections, and says that the act now
in forco will continue eomo months beyond the
meeting of the next Oongress, and that if further
legislation is necesaary, Oongress car. then mature
.?bill. He opposes it aa class legi '*tlon and un
wise, and as sotting up military tribunals which
are liable to come in confliot with the civil law,
and as unnecessary, beoause the laws of each
;State protect the peraone and property of white
. and black alike.
Ho also objecta to it on the score of economy.
'The acts of violence which are made a pretext for
-the bill, he contends are confined to no State or
-section, but are common throughout the country,
and are the consequence of agitation and dorange
ment incident to a long and bloody war. While
auch occurrences are to bo deplored, they furnish
no occasion for the continuance of the Buroau be
yond the time fixed by the original act. The con
-duct of the agents is likewise noted as leading to
fraud, corruption and oppression.
He further urges, as another reason against the
necessity of tho legislation contemplated by this
.measure, that resort can bo had to tho Oivil Right?
Bill, whioh is now a law of the land, and whioh
will be faithfully executed as long as it shall re
main unrepnaled, and may not bo deolared uncon
stitutional by courts of compet.-nt juriadiotion.
Its provisions, he declares, furnish full protcctior.
to all persons without discrimination ; and al
though it did not receive his approval, yot ho con
aiders its remouies far preferable to those pre
fluntou in tho present bill. Tho provision rolatinf
to the confirmation of certain salon of Sea Islam
land is considered unwise, partial and unoonstitu
In conclusion, he again urges on Oongress th
danger of class legislation, as tending to keep th
public mind in a atato of uncertainty, expectation
?disquiet and restlessness, and as furnishing fais
hopos to claeaoB of poraonB of support and main

The 'War in South America.
It is lamentable to witness the slaughter of
brave mon in the sanguinary battles taking plaoe
in South America, all sides, no doubt, inspired
with a belief in the rectitude of their own
courso, and a do termin?t ?on to fight until the
truth is vindicated. Tho battles which have taken
plaoo lately between Paraguay and the united
forces of Brazil and the Argentine Republio, are
characterized by a savago ferocity raroly paral
leled. "No quarter" to the vanquished seems to
have beon adopted as the rule of warfare.
Defenceless prisoners are ruthlessly cut in
pieces. In the recent attempt of the Paraguayans
to recapture tho island of Itapiru, they are said to
have suffered a loss of 640 killed and only 40 pris
oners, most of whom were disabled. Another
furiouB battlo took place in tho latter part of
May, near tho pass of Estero Bellaco, the Para
guayans making a furious assault upon the allied
forces, the cavalry repeatedly charging up to the
muzzles of tho artillery; but information of the in
tended advance having been given by a deserter,
they were repelled with fearful slanghtor. Tho
Anglo-Brazilian Times, in giving an account of
this affair, says :
This tremendous dash was met with steadiness
by the troops attaoked, only a email oorps of Oor
rientine cavalry giving way: tho charges of tho
Paraguayans were received by the infantry in
square, with a heavy fire, which drove them back
again and again, while the allied eannon soon ob
tained a decided superiority over that of the eno
my, and, directed mainly on the attacking masses,
mado suoh bavoo among them as to quoll tho
ardor of the attack upon the flanke. This being
effected, and tho Paraguayans in a manner thrown
upon the d?fensive, their centre waa then attacked
in turn with vigor, and after a short conflict of
four hours they were forced to flee in disorder
from tho field of battle, leaving three or four
thousand dead, sis pieces of artillery, four flags,
a quantity of arms, and eomo prisoners, though
these consist chiafly of tho severely wounded, the
wooded nature of the ground, and tho manner in
which it is cut up with lakes, ponds and water
coureoB, preventing a dose and effective pursuit.
In this battle tho allies lost from 1500 to 2000 in
killed and wounded, two-thirds of whioh loss was
incurred by the Brazilian army, against which
the main attack was directed.
It is added that a Paraguayan division of 3000
mcu was "nearly annihilated." Nothing is said
about prisoners. In this barbarous warfare all
partioB seem equally cnlpable. Tho conflict is lit
erally a war of extermination. The Paraguayans
alone aro estimated to have suffered an aggregate
loss, since the commencement of the struggle a
year ago, of more than 20,000 men.
Some of tho British journals are speculating
upon the extraordinary gravitation of gold from
London to Paris. In the latter city thero is ir
the Bank of France alone ?27,000,000, and muot
of the specie sent from New York baa found iti

Messrs Editors :?l road your remarks, "Com
mercial Disabilities of Charleston," in this day's
isBuo wilh much interest, and beg to call atten
tion to anothor tapping of tho trado and business
legitimately belonging to this city. A line of
steamers has beon started botweon Now York and
Georgetown, with euch connections on tho Poo
Deo and other rivers as will place freight at ac
cessible points on those rivers at a vory small
fraction over tho cost of placing the samo freight
at tho Railroad depot iu this city. This lino of
Bteamcrs will, no doubt, to sustained, as it givos
tho merchants in that part of tho Stato tho pres
tige of direct trade with Now York, whioh is an
important item, and, at tho samo timo, it takes
produce direct to that market ; aud it will natur
ally follow, that the purchasos of supplies will also
bo made there, particularly whon tho freight is
vory liltlo, if any moro, from.New York than from
I havo heard it remarked that "tho George
town lino will not last long," but I think different
ly. Tho stoaniBbip company havo securod as agont
at Georgetown ono of tho moat onterprismg mer

"All Right," Bay* the Captain. All Wrong,
thought the Passengers,
[FBOM AN OCCASIONAL COnnE8PONDENT.]
Messrs. Editors.?A. fow days since the heat bo
came so intense in this groat city of brick and
mortar, and of sin and corruption, that I determin
ed to seok a more endurable place of abode I en
gaged passago and sailed at five o'clock on the
ovoning of tho 6th for tho celobrated summer re
treat of Newport. We bad a fine view of tho
shipping in tho New York harbor; aud it is a sight
worth looking at. Tho chango from the boated
brick walls and noisy streets to the fresh sea
breoze was delightful. Our steamer moved
swiftly through the plaoid sound, and all onboard
seemed to enjoy the change exceedingly. I in
quired of a fellow passenger the character of our'
steamer; ho roplied, "A No. 1?oost $000,000." I
discovered his estimate of the quality of the ship
was governed by tho dollars she cost.
About cloven o'clock tho passengers began to
turn iu for the night. I was on deok talking with
an old Charleston friend over tho years of trial
through which we had passod in the tempest tost
Confederacy. Suddenly tho great wheels of tho
"A No. 1" steamer ceased to turn. "What's the
matter?" Bays one. "A boat ahead; stopped to
let her get out of our way." I noticed considera
ble confusion among the passengers, and I heard
a lady say, "Ob, Habby, tho boat is on fire I we
are lost 1 we are lost I" Poor Habby was endea
voring to aasuro his frightoned wife that there
was no danger, but bis palo face told that ho too
was alarmed. I stepped quickly to the Bide of the
steamer, and, sure onougb, aho seemed to be on
fire I The Captain, howover, assured tho pas
sengers, that.'.'ftU J?&fcott?fit 'iubruaafed. "Being
out the hawsor, and all hands on dock," oried
out tho Captain. "Bill," says John, "what does
the Captain want theTiorser brought on deck for?"
"To enable tho passengers to swim ashore, I
guoae," coolly replied John. "How far is to
laud ?" "Seven miles to the Connecticut shoro,
fifteen to Long Inland." "I'm bound for wooden
nutmegs then, certain," says Bill. "Bring tho
axo aud saw here; hurry up, cut away those
plank?. Be in a hurry." "What is tho matter,
Captain ?" was asked again for tho hundredth
time to his great annoyance, and the same satis
factory (?) answer given, "All right 1"
Tho Captain moved quickly into the pilot house
and brought out a bundle of rods. "My dear,
what is tho Captain going to do ?" inquired an
afie tionato wife of her husband. "Tako a sound
ing, I Calculate!" I did not profess to be much
of a sailor, but aky-rookets seemed to me queer
instruments with which to try tho depth nf tho
blue soa. The Captain ordered a match to be
brought him quickly. Away wont tho streak of
lightning, exploding Bevoral hundred feet abovo
the ship. This circumstance added new terror to
tho frightened passengers, and I bogan to fool a
littlo shaky mysolf. They all know the rockots
were signals of distress, and we did not know
how soon we were to bo blown up or go to the
bottom. Ono, two, tbreo, four rockets wero sent
up, giving us quito a Fourth of July celebration,
but not much enjoyed by the spectators. The
Captain was looking anxiously through his
glasses, and again he saya, "AU right ; they Bee
us, and are coming this way."
Several miles distant tho light of a steamer
could be seen approaching us, and as she came
nearer and nearer, all hearts grew stronger; and
when a voice through a speaking trumpet oried
out, " Who are you, and what can I do for you?"
was hoard, the passengers for tho first time began
to think perhaps all would bo right; and when wo
were lashed securely to the strange steamer, we
felt like a girl with two awoothearts?tkat we had
two strings to our bow.
During the night tho damages to tho machinery
wero repaired, and noxt morning wo landed safely
at Newport, feeling thankful that we were neither
burned nor drowned. I leavo hero on Saturday,
on tho flue steamship Napoleon III. We sail di
rect for France. When I learn to epoak and write
French, you shall hear from me again.

A letter from a Brazilian officer describes some
of the beauties of soldiering in South Amorioa :
"Amphibious oroatnres abound. In my own tont
I have already killed four anakes. Every morn

fifteen or twenty monstrous toads, whioh have

The Fhilabelphia Convention?North_Noarly
all tho 8tat08 aro calling district or county meet
ings to appoint delogatoe to tho Philadelphia Con
vention. Tho Now Haven Begister aaya that tho
Masa Gonvontion of tho "National Union Party,"
whioh is to assemblo at New Haven on Wcdnos
day, tho first day of August, will start a now par
ty in Connecticut againBt tho Radicals, who are
opposing tho Union and conducting tho affairs of
tho country with a reckless hand. Tho Conven
tion will choose delogates to tho great National
Convention at Philadelphia, and thceo delegate?
will ho solcctcd from among thoso who havo acted
with tho Republican party in the past, or with the
Democratic party. Men are not to bo ignored on
account of their past or presout party affiliations.
Tho Clcvoland Plain Dealer publishes a call,
July 11, for a convention to appoiut dolcgates to
Philadelphia, and aayd : "As tho Democratic party,
in all tho StatoB where conventions havo boon held,
havo indorsed tho restoration policy of tho Presi
dent, thoro can certainly bo no impropriety in send
ing delegates to a convention in which partizan feel
ing will bo buried, whero truo friends of tho Union
can tako such action aa to preservo tho Govern
ment, under tho Constitution, and put down the
Radical faction who seek to mako tho Constitution
tho crcaturo of their whims, aud tho Union a
thing of forco and inequality, of endless bickering
and disquiet. "
A largo mooting of Conservatives and Demo
crats at Springfield, Illinois, July 9, adopted reso
lutions to hold a State Convention, for tho eamo
purpose, August 2. Tho resolutions adopted woro
admirable. The Indianapolis (Ind.) Daily Ledger
urges action in tho countioa and districts, and
everywhere, especially at tho South and West?
the pooplo aro moving.
The Philadelphia Convention?South.?The
almost universal expression of tho South in favor
of the representation of that section of tho coun
try in the Union National Convention at Philadel
phia, is tho strongest argument in its favor. Tho
Memphis, Tonn., Bulletin considers it "tho most
important event of tho year." The Mobile, Ala.,
Begister sanctions it. The Richmond Examiner
cordially recommends it. The North Carolina
papers advocate it. Louisiana has called a Con
vention for tho ohoico of delogates. The Houston,
Texas, Telegraph, July 1, saya : "Tho time is
short, but wo can have our delegatea elected in
timo, and all othor Texas papers in communica
tion by telegraph, aro now consulting with each
other, and, with the loading Conservative men in
the respective sections, and, as far as hoard from,
thore is entire harmony in tho movement." In our
own State it is almost universally approved. Aud
and thus it is throughout tho South ; an anxious
desire to unito in a movemont that ah all restore
harmony between tho States ; tho General Govern
ment to its logitimato action throughout the
nation, and the Constitution to the exercise of its
proper fonctions aa tho shiold of all?North and
South, East and West.

the Executive Committee also bo authorized to

A Constitutional Club in Philadelphia.?A
number of tho oitizons of the Fifteenth Ward,
Philadelphia, have associated themselves under
the title of "The First Constitutional Club of
Pennsylvania," established a club-house and se

and federal equality which form tho true cement
that holds together the fabric of this Union, we
hereby agree to labor in concert for the success
of tho principles above stated."
