FRIDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER IG, 18G6.
We publish this morning a oommunioation
from the pen of a well-known and influential
Charleston merchant, on the subject of through
( eights, whicli we call attention to. Wo pub
lish also a great variety of interesting matter
on our inner pages.
TUE COLUMBIA AND IIAMBUG RAILROAD.
The Charlotte Railroad wants an oxtonsion
of its line to Augusta, and this extension is
called the Columbia and Hamburg Railroad.
It oommences a mile or two below Columbia,
und will probably end ten or twolvo miles
below Augusta. The newspapers in both cities
arc discussing the question of benefits to be
derived nnd money to be subscribed. Columbia
has given $33,000 in good money, and now
asks if the road cun't be brought into the town?
We think it will not, because its projectors have
other objects in view. Again, the line of the
road is run to tiranitcvillo, and it is hoped that
some plan will be devised lo get the South
Carolina Railroad to help out the twelve or
more mileB lo Augusta; but the South Carolina
Railroad has paid, first and last, half a million
of dollars, or so, for privileges at and near
Augusta, and 'tis writ in the bond that boforo
any other Railroad can sharo thcBo privileges,
such Railroad must refund the South Carolina
Railroad, with interest. If Augusta subscribes,
it will be to enter Ihe field of litigation, on a
scale large enough to satisfy any reasonable
ambition, for the South Carolina Railroad sees
in this extension of (ho Charlotte Road a blow
at Charleston and the State, as well as to itself
and to interests of great consideration in Augusta.
Wc share with the Constitutionalist in its expose
of the plan to get Augusta to subscribe to the
stock in good bonds or money, and then have
this covered immediately by bonds which other
people are to buy.
When we add that the topography of the
country is impracticable for this road on a di
rect line to Hamburg, and- that necessity com
pels this deflection to Graniteville, and that the
road, to be available, must make terms with the
South Carolina Railroad, tho prospect of the
probable value of its stock, when it shall have
accommodated itself to the requirements which
will of right be fairly imposed upon it, is not
THE REBELLIO US SPIRIT OF THE SO UTII.
It is (he common and constant ory of jour
nals at the North (hat the South is still rebel
lious, and tho Tribune, in the following, utters
the idea which they find it convenient and pro
fitable to express, whatever bo the real opinion,
if any, which they entertain upon the subject:
"Encouraged by the President, and misled by
tho promiBOB of tho Northern Democrats, tho ro
b?is affect to consider as dishonorable an ofTor
which, at tho end of tho war. they would have been
too happy to accept. Mr. Johnson has drawn thorn
up in battlo array, and their allios in tho rebellion
stand with thorn as of old. Tho Sonth still pre
sents a united front to tho North, and is as ready
to fight now as it was in 18G1?more roady, perhaps
having moro trust in its weapons. With tho Presi
dent willing to do its bidding, it is prepared to
moot tho issue with Congress, and trusts, as it did
through tho war, that by long stubbornness it will
tiro out tho North, and oompol it to submit. The
commercial interests of the Freo States, it believes,
will compel an adjustment upon any conditions;
Northern merchants may like principio, bnt they
love money; the North will yiold at last, finding
that tho South will not. In this faith, tho rebol
States aro proporod to stay out of tho Union until
they can re-enter upon thoir own terms."
The ground for this opinion they affect to
find in tho general refusal at the South to ac
cept the Congressional Amendment, and we re
gret to see the feeling entertained by men of
respectability, even among ourselves, that we
have not dono yet enough; that we have yet the
hardihood to aet as though our bouIb wero our
own, and, in doing so, to incur the greater
wrath an irritated Radicalism may be pleased
to pour upon us.
To Buoh expressions from organs al tho North
wc havo no reply to make. We could not ap
pease them by showing thoir strictures are un
just. It is their trade to find the evidences of
a diabolical disposition. They could not be
convinced to tho contrary; and they would not,
if they could. And perhaps no single aot could
so inspire them with a focling of inappcasablo
malignity as would that of showing them that
they have no cause for malignity at all. They
demand a sentiment of allegiance, but not to
tho Government of the United States. They
demand it to them, as tho masters of that gov
ernment, and they demand that, acknowledging
tho obligation of allegiance, we shall exhibit,
also, tho ovidonoe that wo havo failed in its per
formance), and thus, therefore, that whilo wo
shall bo their cortain victims, we shall do them
the further pleasure of showing that their in
flictions aro just. In tho condition of tho kid
that muddied the stream below the wolf, wo
havo no motive to propitiate opinion. Extenu
ation is outrage. Our unpardonablo offence ?b
in the fact that wc present tho object against
whioh their forces may bo trained?the plun
der with tho hopes of which thoir parly cohe
sion may be purchased; and boforo such au
thority, it wero scarcely consistent with sanity
or rospoot in Southern men to enter a defence.
As the aotion of that party, should it como to
powor, would be utterly irrespective of tho at
titudo or merits wo exhibit, it were becoming in
us to await results, and not fatigue ourselves with
posture making and pretences whioh, if pleas
ant to them, can not by any possibility be pro
fitable to ourselves. ?
For the fooling of our own peoplo, however,
wo have more respect. Thoy share tho fortunes
-of tho country, and aro also involved, there
fore, iu the consequences of our conduct.? But
what more than wc have done would they have
?b do? Shall tho political lenders of the South
retire from public life? Thnt they htivc done.
There is not. one of them, within our knowledge,
who Mpires lo office, or would ucccpt it, but
from the conviction th:it it is incumbent on him
to discharge its duties. Shall wc say that our
adversarios were right and we were wrong ?
Against that it is a conclusive argument that
theroisuoLoncof them who would believe uh, anil
the pleasure they would find in an abasement
ho profound as (o acknowledge a merit in thein
that in thoir hearts they do not claim?a wrong
in oursclvcB they know wo havo noL done?will
Hcarccly move them to mitigate afflictions upon
victim* so ready to reccivo them. Shall wo ad
mit of negro suffrage Y That will not appcaso
thorn. They want u causo of complaint, not
compliance, and this conceded, Lhcy will find
that cause in something olso. Shall we accept
tho Constitutional Amendment-, and admit,
thcrcforo, the right of that parly to mould the
Constitution to its plcaaurb, and Lu effect, thorc
foro, accept the despotism it assumes? That
will bo but un cry for mercy, und is that moro
potent than ju?tice to protect us? or if that
party had no sonso of justice, no respect for
tho Constitution, tho prostige, glories, and tra
ditions of tho country?if it has been instant,
as it suroly has, at every period and placo of
its history and progresa, to exhibit tho lowest
tastes, the most brutal instincts?if it shall al
ways have a repudiated decency and virtue,
nnd tolerated only vulgarity and vico?is it
certain or supposablc that it. has retained the
gentle attribute of mercy? or is it so certain it
will triumph over the government, that in ad
vance wc muit hail it as the victor.' The
Fresident has taken his stand upon the Consti
tution. Ho exhibits yet the purpose to vindi
cate the integrity of the Union. lie has yet
the power to do so. Ho is commandor-in-chief
cf an army which, if he Bhall have sufficient in
tellectual intrepidity, must obey him. He has
charged that the act of a party, in changing
tho Constitution to its will, is an act of usurpa
tion; and that that act, whatever be its merits, is
one to be resisted. IJe has, therefore, right
and power upon his side; and is it certain that
he will fail? or so certain that, wo arc warrant
ed in running from the fortunes of his falling
house? or if this is to be done?if the dirt- is
to be eaten, what are we to bo paid for it ?
We arc not proud or rebellious. Our struggle
has been made in vindication of a cause wc
conceived to be right, and thnt failing, wc are
willing to confess our inability to do more, and
to accept of power in any form in which it may
come upon us; and we have that regard for our
lives, which are still a trust, and the well-being
of our families, that if aots are required of us
for which any fair consideration is offorcd, we
would perform them. We arc ready to work,
cheerfully, for the conditions of a material wc?l
being, and would scruple at little, not positively
vioious or immoral, that would help us to that
end. But what are we to gain by prostration
before the Radical party at tho North ? An ex -
emption from greater severities of oppression ?
They cannot spare us. They arc not sut juris.
A party, impelled by the rude instincts of a
mass, must roll on to the physical impediment
sufficient to resist it. Its leaders are power
less to restrain it. There is no promise, if
made, that they could keep; their lives would
be scarcely safe if they should speak for mercy
or venture to stand in the track to plunder.
They have made no promises?they ask pros
tration merely;?or if they had, they could not
keep them; and unless that party shall break to
division in the spoils, or be arrested by the
Government, our weak propitiations would be
vain, as Eastern incantations to a pestilence, to
arrcBt its desolating course. To those of our
friends, then?and wc arc willing to esteem them
such, and honest in their purposes?who com
plain that wc arc not sufficiently humblo and
complacent, we have only to say that wc have
no sufficient motive to be more so. Our for
tunes are not under our control, and, in our
conception, wo have nothing left us but to be
passive and await results with propriety and
Tin: Senate is composed at present of thirty
eight Radicals and thirteen Democrats and
ConBorvatives. The noxt is likely to have forty
one Radicals and ten Democrats. The new
Senators, thus far, arc the Hon. Cornelius
Cole of California, the Hons. J. S. Fowler and
David T. Patterson of Tennessee (who have
taken iheir seats), A. 0. Cattei.l of New Jersey
(prcsont Congress), and H. W. Corbett of Ore
gon. Only one of these, Senator Patterson,
the President's 8on-in-law, is a Democrat. The
complexion will bo further changed by tho
election of a Democratic Senator in Maryland
to fill the place of the Hon. J. A. J. Cresswell,
Radical, whose term expires next year ; and in
Pennsylvania and New JcrBey by tho choice of
Radicals in place of tho Hons. Edoar Cowan
and Wm. Wrigiit, DomooratB, the latter de
oeased. John Evans and Jero&ie B. Chavpee
ore the Senators chosen from the proposed new
State of Colorado, and Thob. W. Tipton and
Qen. John U. Thayer, those chosen from that
of Nebraska. These four Territorial Senators
are Radicals. Should those Territories be ad
mitted as Slates in tho next Congress, the Radi
cal Btrongth will be forty-fivo members.
Mr. Sbward.?Tho Radicals are taunting
Mr. Seward npt a littlo. His prophecy of 40,
000 majority in Now York for Hoffman is the
occasion of much joking. Tho New York Her
ald, which is serving Radicalism with a now
born zeal, assails him with especial delight.
It saya that tho old-CBtablishod firm of "Weed
St Seward," "onoo doing a lucrativo business,
has at last gone to pieces, and is hopclosafy and
helplessly bankrupt." It adviaea Mr. Seward
to leave tho Cabinet ami givo plaoo to a '?vigor
ous, earnept man," in tho State Department.
Tho Radioals had better not aggravate? Mr.
Sbward. He is a man of tho sharpest sagaci
ty and tho keenest mal ico. Ho is withal one of
the coolest and most deliberate of mon. Ho is
reported to havo said : "They think I am worn
out; I shall teach them something different be
foro tho year has passod."
Tub Mobile courts have decided (hat when a
man steals cotton ifs value muBl bo reckoned in
specie, to decide whether it be grand larceny
and a felony, or only a misdemeanor. A man
had stolen five hundred und ni?o pounds of
cotton, which was worth $12<"i in greenbacks,
twenty-five dollars more than grand larceny
theft, but only eighty-three in specie, so that
(he thief la only guilty of a misdemeanor, und
gets off by paying $200 fine instead of* going to
waw?????waiaiiai laiaw .
The End of the JtraixL Will Case.?The Now
York Herald, of Tuesday, Bays in roforouco to this
celebrated ease :
The celebrated Jnmol will case c.amo to trial yes

JoBoph F. Barnard, and, aft or an ojiouing Btato

INLr. Nelson Chase, tho principal plaintiff, and Rev.
I. Howard S ?ith, Um* principal dof.-ndant, and a
cbargo by tho Justico, tho caso was tmbmitlcd to
tho jury who, aftor a fow minutoH' consultation, ro
turucd into court with a verdict in favo of the
Elm nt iff on all tho issues framed. Mr. O'Conor in
unatod his. willingness to hav tho jury find a
supplementary ?statement oxoalpating Itov. J. How

undue infltionco in obtaining tho "xouution of
Madame Jtunol's will?sot uuitlo by this verdict,?
but th" jury declined to do bo. Tho cose had been
actually Bottled botwoo : the parties boforo coming

a necessary formality. It is undotstood that un

nmonpt tho lawyers. Tho heirs-at-la-v got $10,000,
and tho outato passe? into tho possession of Mr.
The following from tho Atlanta Prices Current,
will bo an item of interest to plantors and others
handling cotton :
Tito supply of bagging and ropo io ample, but
not in cxeosB, and price3 aro well sustained. We
have no chango to notice As an offort haB been
made to intruduco iron-Lie:), as a substitute for
balo ropo, in packing cotton, wo doom it but fair to
tho cotton producing public to lay boforo it tho
following extract fr m tho circular of a reliable and
highly responsible firm in Liverpool, which con
clusively settle? tho question of tho comparative
merits of tho iron-tie and balo rope. Tho groat
superiority of tho ropo over the iron tio, in all that
interests tho cotton growor, muat bo bo apparent
as to compol him to discard theiron-tio altogether.
Tho Livoi"poo? circular says :
"Allxocf taro ot four por cent, on Amorican ropo
bound cottou, whilo upon iron-bound cotton, an
actual ture of from ten to twolvo pounds por bale
(tho weight of tho, iron) is assessed, and in addi
tion, a rogular taro of throe por cent."
Under those ciroumstoncos, iron-hooped cotton
is subjected to a loss of from six to eight pounds
per balo moro than when baled with ropo, which,
at SO cents por pound for cotton, tho now rate in
Liverpool, makes a difference in favor of ropo of
near ?2.40 per bale, in specie
It is also stated that buyers in tho Eastern cities
oro discriminating in favor of rope-baled cotton, at
about fifty per cent, per balo, owing to the fact
that tho old rope ia valuable for paper stock, whilo
tbo old iron tie.-) or hoops aro considered worthless.
Those aro oonsideratious for the planters to inves
tigate, and thoy aro tho ones on whom tho loss
must ultimately fall from tho ase of iron-tics in
stead of bolo rope.
A CoNrnintmoN fbom Mbs. Jeff. Davis to tue
Washington and Lee Association.?The Norfo.k
Virginian contains the following paragraph : "We
announce with extreme gratification and pleosuro
that Mrs*. Jhffeuson Davis has prosentod to tho

Dr. Fahbah, of this city, an elegant and costly set
