CHARLESTON, S. O., SATUBDAY. JULY 38. 1866.
PRICF FIVE CiSNTS.
Washington, July 27_Mr. Harlan this after
moon addrosscd a brief but courteous noto to the
.President, resigning the offico of Secretary of tho
The Senate pushed tho bill for the admission of
Nebraska. Also paeeed a joint resolution, so
.modifying the Test Oath as to pormit Senator
Patterson, of Tennessee, to take his seat. ThiB
requires tho concurrence of the House.
The House dit-agreod to tho Senate's amend
ment of tho Civil Appropriation Bill setting apart
$1,500,000 for repairing Misijieaippi levees. Also,
by a large majority, voted down tho proposition
to inorease tho salaries of members of Congress
from throo to flvo thousand dollars.
The Judiciary Committee of the House, to-day,
made a report relative to the alleged complicity of
-Jeffebson Davis in tho assassination of Mr. Lin
coln; whoroin they stato that it is notorious that
.tho said Davis was guilty of the crime of treason,
according to tho Constitution and laws of the
.United States; and the Committee are of the
-opinion that thoro are no obstacles to a speedy
and impartial trial which .cannot bo removed by
Tho evidenco in possession of the Committee,
. connecting Jefferson Davis in the assassination
-of President Linooln, justifies the Committee in
.saying that there ?a probable oauee to believe
.that he waa privy to the measures which
tied to the commission of the deed. But the inves
tigations which havo been made by the War De
partment and the Committee havo not resulted
in placing the Government in possession of all the
facts in the oase. It is probable, however, that
--the further prosecution of the investigation by
?.the Committee, and by the officers of the Govern
?ment, will result finally in a full development of
the whole transaction. The oapture of the rebel
.archivos has put the Government in possession of
-a masa of letters, papers, and documerts of vari
.ouB kinds, only a portion of whioh has as yet bean

upper and western portion of'the State; Mr. i

A JAMES ISLAND ?PLANTER.
[fob the daily news ]
Messrs. Editors : Recently, in our perambula
tions, wo accidentally picked up "Appleton's Hand
book of Southern Travel." It is designed, wo pro
sum?, as a guide for those making a Southern
tour, and particularly in<ended for circulation
throughout the Southern country. While wo are
always pleased to see the issue of useful books,
calculated to extend information, we detest any
publication where the author or authors are par
tial and prejudiced in their expressions, and really
falso in their statements of faots. For instance,
in this "Hand-Book,'" a work whioh professes to be
honest and impartial, they are particularly care,
ful in their descriptions of Fredericksburg and
Obancellorsvillo, and of every other place where
tho Confederates wore successful, to pass slight
ingly over it, and, on the other hand, wherever
the Federals obtained an advantage, to expatiate
upon it and introduce portions of official report?,
by way of a clincher. Wo care nothing about
this, but we contend that truth, fairness and
honesty should pervade the pages of a "Guide
Book of Southern Travel."
On page 64, in giving a description of Columbia
and the burning of that beautiful oity, the writer
aaya : "The fire waa set by ths soldiers of Gen.
Wade Hampton's command," which he know,
most certainly to be an untruth.
We do not desire to injure any one in his opera
tions, but we simply ask the question, can any
man, especially a Southern man, patronize a work
so one-Bided, partial, dishonest, prejudioed and

The Frankfort Diet In Dangar.
[iront L'Europe, July IS,]
Everything leads to the belief that within a few
days-perhaps hours-the roar of cannon will be
heard in tho neighborhood of the Free Oity. It
seems to be impossible that under euoh circum
stances the Germanic Diet can oontinue to find
in Frankfort the tranquillity amid whioh its delib
erations should bo carried on. If, then, tho High
Assembly should determine as a provisional meas
ure to transfer ita sittings to a town less exposed
than Frankfurt to the channing surprises of war,
to Augsburg for instance, thore would be nothing
in that prudent arrangement whioh would cairs?
any astoi.isbment. It is. above all, necessary that
the sole legal orgau of the Confederation should
insure its complete liberty of aotion. We repeat,
that this tratiBtor of locality, should it take place,
will be of a provisional oharaoter only.
The foregoing extract assists us in correcting a
blunder of the telegraph, whioh announced, yes
terday, that the Diet had removed to Augusten
burg. We knew at the time of transcribing it
that there was no city of that name in Germany.
The operator had been thinking of the Duke ol
Auoustenbubg, Queen Viotobia's new son-in-laW.

Mb. Davis, feeling that Dr. CbavxTn has don
him groat inj us tico in his description of the mern
orable shackling scene, recently gave to a friem
the following account:
His account is to the effect that when the file c
r. I soldiers entered his room, and the sergeant ha
Btated in a few direct words tbe buelnetrs upo
?- whioh they had come, he (Davis) quietly an
i- briefly said that he must resent it to tno exton
0 or his power as an insult to "me and our people.
With the view only of entering this forcible pre
'" test, and not with an intent of engaging in a chile
9; ieh struggle with the soldiers, ne struck at tfa
io man nearest him, when the soldiers brought the:
arms promptly to the position of "oharge bayoi
W ets." Berg* ant-, however, instantly ordere
te "b boulder arms," and had the prisoner seized an
|y placed upon the bed. When thero Davis atruj
gled for a moment with the ?ame intent, but on
for a moment, and then submitted without a r
*e mark to what he know he could not avoid. TI
nt sergeant, who was the only "officer" present, M
d Davia says, pertormed his duty just as a soldi
would do. made no excusos for it, and did m
to plead orders. lu short, all the details of th
K- scene in tbe Craven book, including the exolam
or tionbyDivls, "Ob the shame 1 oh, the shame
upon which the changes have been rung so ince

re thority of tho prisoner himself, merely figrnen

Our Colored Population.-Whilst hearing from

of the frcodmon, it affonla-us pleasure to be able
to make a good report of the colored poople of
this community. Their general conduct is good,
and they exhibit a very corroot appreciation of
their sooial status. The absence of the vico of
druukeuuCBs is cspocially noticeable. They take
a great interest in their religious moetinge, to
which, whatever may be their spiritual effoot, wo
attribute this good stato of thiugs. Thoy now

Spabtanbubq.-From the Spartan we take the
Fire.-The exoiting alarm of fire waa raised in
our town on Thursday laat, about ia M. It waa
caused by tha burning of one of the out-houses
attached to the residence of Professor J. Stuart
Hanokol, which eventually set the kitchen on fire,
and from that caught to the large two-story
dwelling situated on Greenville street, about 500
yards from the Court House. These buildings
burnt rapidly, and the brisk wind which was blow
ing created some apprehension for the safety of
prevented. We believe the contents of tho prin
cipal dwelling were saved, but were greatly dam
aged in removing them, and the loss iu this way
alone was pretty heavy.
We will here make mention of the energy and
fidelity of the freedmen in their strenuous efforts
to prevont the spreading of the flames. The
freedmeu of our town are certainly the bost be
haved, leas riotous and tho most faithful of any in
' Death of Beuben Bowden.-Wo aro pained to re
cord the demise of this highly estimable gentle
man, which oconrred very suddenly and unex

our town, and well known and highly respooted
and loved by all. His uniform and courteous de
portment oonld not fail to win the respect of all
around him. Ho was Ordinary of our District for
four conaeoutive terms, and discharged the duties
of that responsible office faithfully and impartially.
He held this office until the foebfe condition of his
health required that he should resign, to pursuo a
more aotive life. Ho then moved to flowansville,
in Greenville District. He had been a consistent
member of the Baptist Church for the last forty
years of his life, and bi? whole life was such as
enables us to speak of it, not as what "it should
havo boen," but "what it was." His death will be
deeply mourned by a large circle of relations and
friends throughout our district. His remains wore
intorrod at Gowansville, on Tuesday ovoning last,
by members of Spartan Lodge, with Masoni?

The Crops.-Our planters wear long facoB, and
not without good roaron. Tho intense heat and
continuod drought of the past two weeks havo put
the finishing stroke to a largo portion of tho corn
crop, much of which is dead and boyond any hopo

dinarily light. In thiB extremity and with tho
now certain prospect of a coming winter of un

the imperative necessity of oconomy and the
