TROUBLE AMONG THE NEGROES
ON THE COAST.
THE NEGROES ON BACK RIVER, OPPOSITE
SAVANNAH, ARMING THEMSELVES.
THEY REFUSE! TO GIVE Ul? THE
The Savannah News of Monday has tho follow?
A rumor was prevalent in this city yostei day
that a collision had occurred between ? detach?
ment of the United States soldiers and the freed?
men on Mr. Chevos' plantation, by which several
lives bad been lost, but, from what we could learn,
there "was really no conflict between them. Wo
found the officers very retient, but, from what wo
could learn, the facts are these: An order has been
issued to Capt. H. C. Brandt, Commissioner of tho
Freedmen's Bureau, who hos charge of the ne?
groes on Back River, to tho effect that tho lands
axe- to be turned over to tho owners, and the
freedmen to make contracts- A portion of tho
Choves property has been leased by Mr. Smith
Barnwell, who was desirous of making arrange?
ments with the negroes, but they positively re?
fused, and threatened to take Mr. Barnwell's life.
Application was then made to Captain Brandt,
who furnished Mr. Barnwell with a corporal and
six men, with whom he proceeded to thc place, but
soon found that the negroes were determined to
resist. He then came back and made application
for a detachment of fifty men. They wore fur?
nished from Fort Pulaski, and Lieutenant Miller,
of the Sixteenth Infantry, detailed to command
them. Captain Brandt then proceeded a TOSS tho
river and left twenty-fivo men at tho mill. With
the balance he went to Mr. Barnwell's place, and at
Mist saw nothing but a few women and children.
He read his orders to them, and said that lie carno
to them as a friend and not to fight them. Soon
thereafter the detachment was surrorjided by
three or four hundred armed negro men and wo?
men, the men keeping to the rear of the women
We have boen informed that the negroes have
been thoroughly drilled o nd armed, and that an
officer, with sash and sword, was in command. We
also learn that the negro lawyer, Bradley, who ap?
plied to be admitted to practice in the Superior
Court last wock, is at tho bottom of the whole
thing; that he has informed the negroes that they
cannot be removed: that Congress has passed a
law giving them the right to hold the lands; and
thatThe has recommended them to resist the offi?
cers of the Bureau. Some of the negroes present?
ed what they said was their w air nt, and wai ch had
been given them by Bradley for the sum of one
dollar a head.
We understand that dispatches have boen sont
to Gen. Scott, informing hun of the state of affairs,
and that he will probably arrive on the scene to?
day. A steamboat left yesterday afternoon with
supplies and stores for the soldiers, but we did not
hear of its returning last night.
They wero armed with clubs, hooka and mus?
kets. The Captai .1 stated that he wanted them to
appoint one or two mon to talk tho matter over
with bim, and advised them th at "he did not want
to drive them off the place, but merely to induce
them to make contracts with Mr. Barnwell. This I
choy refused, and said the lands belonged to them; I
they had paid taxes to the Government, and that
they would not leave."
:While the parley, was progressing, some: of tho 'j
negroes had got in thc rear of the soldiers and be- j
hind a fence, and when discovered they had their i
guns pointed through the holes of the fence, and
Dearing directly on the soldiers. Discovering this,
the Captain judiciously determined to withdraw
his men, not wishing to shed blood, especially as
tho women and children would probably nave been
the sufferors. He retired to the mill where he had
left the balance of the soldiers, and came to town
for further orders from Gen. Scott, commanding
A RADICAL LIE.-The subjoined-statement has
been travelling the rounds of the Northern-papers,
and is everywhere received with acclamations as a
genuine specimen,of "robel" State Government.
The MnAEB of the tale is proclaimed as a martyr,
and the" strong arm of the Government is invoked
in his aid. The story, like Mr. SUMNER'S letters,
was coined to sait some emergency, ancL-as the
Charles tomans have never heard of the illustrious
MILLER, the presumption is that he is a mythical
personage, who, in his capacity of attache to the
Radical party, does duty, whenever -occasion re?
quires; in fact, we have a strong suspicion that the
said MILLEE ia no less a personage than tho ro
nowed JOSEPHUS himself, tho veritable little jokor.
AN AOOEAVATED CASE.-A man named Miller re?
moved from New York State a few years ago, to
South Carolina, where he married. Upon the outr
break of the war he was forced into the rebel,
ranks, though still a thorough Unionist. When
Sherman appeared in that Stats he escaped from
tho insurgent lines, and,-, reaching the General's
camp, imparted very valuable inf. rmation to him;
When our army reached the sea Miller came to
New. York. Ho remained there till the war closod,
and then returned to South Carolina. Thereupon
the civil authorities arrested him, and, after being
tried, he was sentenced to be hanged.' Therprin
cipal charge against him waa "that he had given
information to Sherman, which led to the capture
of property belonging to his brother-in-law. He
is now in confinement, waiting the execution of
his sentence. The attention of the Government,
however, has been directed to his ease, and his
friends are confident that the necessary steps will
be taken for his release.
'Too BAS_The Mobile Tribune has changed
hands. The editor, in retiring, winds np with,
this pathetic sentence. We pity him from the bot?
tom of oar heart, and- hope that he will console
himself in tho reflection that in this;woTld of sor?
row and misfortune editors have their trials and
grievances as well as other people :
But I must drop; a tear over my baby, the Tri?
bune, which is now in tho hands of others. I drop
that tear, and part with those whom I love, with
so much pain that, .while writing this, the paper is
wet with the water that falls from my eyes. I
know very well that this is folly, bnt wno has no
THE SUGAR PLANTATIONS or LOUISIANA.-Sogar
plantations are in the market now at unusually
oheap rates. Ose, situated about fifty-eight miles
above New Orleans, containing" thirteen hundred
and fifty-nine- arpents, with-'fine, commodious
dwelling house, built of brick, and improvements,
an extensive brick sugar house'with, machinery
complete, cabins for "eighty, laborera, was lately
sold for 532,800. Terms, one-fourth cash;, balance
one, two and three years. This estate made ia
18>9, an average season, two hundred and fifty
hogsheads of sugar. Be foro the war, this planta?
tion with" the negroes attached,' was valued at
8150,000. - It is not an. oxtreme case. A New Orr
leans paper says that it will require about twenty
ove minions ca dollars in the way of loans to re
: plaee: the losses sustained by the", sugar-planting
interest of Louisiana and to place the several hun?
dred plantations in "good wofld?g condition. Even
then the scarcity ofiabor will present serions dis?
couragements. --- '

[SPECIAL CORRESPONDENCE OF THE DALLY HEWS.]
CONGRESSIONAL FT7RY AGAINST THE PRESIDENT.
WASHINGTON, January 19.-Tho telegraph has
already notified you of tho Radical outbursts
against the President, that have occurred in each
wing of the Capitol this week; but it cannot havo
dilated upon tho savage growth of that spirit o'
wild accusation which now seems to have seized at
least a third of the majority in the Senate and
House. In the latter body, it is to be expected
that the expression of the impeaching members
will bo of tho extremest violonco, howevor lacking
in material corroborative proof; hence witness the
insane accusations of Hon. Ben. LOAN, of Missouri,
the other day, to the effect that ANDREW JOHNSON
was in direct complicity with the plot to assassi?
nate LINCOLN, and that the consideration, to follow
his consequent elevation to the Presidential Chair,
was to bo tho exercise of executive clcmoncy and
partiality to the people of the South. In the lower
House, such ebullitions of irresponsible wrath are
not in excess cf the licenso of'debate, because six
years reign of passion and prejudice upon that
floor have made invective and denunciation proper
by common usage and consent. Not so tha Sonate;
perhaps from the uncomplimentary fact that its
members are too cumbersome of speech, and slow
of motion, to undertake any very wild paroxysm of
oratorical fury. But yesterday came tho exception,
in the similitude of a speech from CHABLIS SUM?
NER, tho immaculate pink in whom is compressed
all tho theory of hi 3 party, without any*conooption
of its practico, or ability to mould its laws. Hear
"At lost the country is opening its eyes to tho
actual condition of things. Already it sees that
Andrew Johnson, who came to supreme power by
a bloody accident, has become tho successor of
Jefferson Davis in the spirit by which ho is gov?
erned, and in the mischief which ho has inflicted,
on his country. It sees the President of the rebel?
lion revived in tho President of the United States.
It Bees that the violence which took the life of his
illustrious predecessor is now, bv his perverse
complicity, extending through the rebel States,
making all who love the Union its victims, and
filling tho land with oppression. It soes that the
war upon tho faithful Unionists is still continued
undor his powerful auspices, without any distinc?
tion of color, so that both white and black are
sacrificed alike. It sees that he is a minister of
discord and not a minister of peace ; it sees that
so long as his opinion prevails there is small
chance for tranquility, or security, or reconcilia?
tion; that tho restoration of prosperity in the
rebol States so much longed for must be arrested ;
that the business of tho wholo country must be
embarrassed, and thoso conditions upon which
rests a sound currency must be postponed. All
these things tho country now s???.
And this from ono of tho men who, in all likeli?
hood, will bo called upon to act as a judge in a
trial of tho very individual whom he hos already
foresworn. As was well remarkod by Senator
REVEBDY JOHNSON, who, immediately after Suti
NEB'S conclusion, administered a stinging rebuke
of tho latter's intomporato asseverations : "The
Senator irora Massachusetts well knows that there
is in thc House a proposition to impeach, and, in
advance, he places himself out of the pale of an
upright judge by pronouncing, in the face of the
country, that he has judged and condemned
There is no doubt that this spirit of accusation
and malevolent desire to work the President wrong,
at whatever hazard of honor or truth, is upon the
increase; and long before the Judiciary Committeo
of the House is ready to announce that it has
worked up au indictment against the President, I
am inclined to think that the war of words upon
the Executive will run higher and more recklessly
than ever before Just now there is going on a
controversy between the Washington correspond?
ents of tho Now York Tribune, and Times and
Herald-the , former, holding that tho re?
ports to the effect that United States bonds
wjre being, prepared for return to this
country on account of tho rumors of impeachment,
had been dictated by the President, in order to
create a panic among the people,- and so rouse
popular clamor against the movement to decapi?
tate Mr. Johnson. Whatever plausible story may
bo advanced in support of this assumption,'I can,
of mine own knowledge, assert that within three
days ? leading broker of New York, whose name is
potent upon tue Stock Exchange, and who manages
a "ring" whose influence is felt even among the
gunny bags of tho Treasury vaults, hos received
advices from his agents in Frankfort and in London,
that they would prefer io suspend the sale of U. S.
Government securities until after the Congres?
sional plot had evolved itself, and meantime they
suggested the bonds had better return to American
shores until the storm had blown over. And back
they come-a million and a half-by the next week's
mad. Will the people of the North be warned by
this first ripple arising from Federal credit tos??-?
into the sea, and destined to reach these shores
as a great wave, threatening to submerge even the
heme faith in tho stability of the Government and
its promises to pay J If they realize tho peril,
stake your bte there's an end-to impeachment.
A FASHIONABLE BOW.
Socially a great hub-bub is gathering, and pure?
ly out of political bad temper. The . inauguration
I o"f the receptions has had the first-to do with evok?
ing the. petty conflict of tho hour, and they now
nightly demonstrate-to what marvellous extent
they have grown. Tho wives of Radical Senators
and Congressmen receive one crowd, and the
Madame Secretaries of thc Cabinet play the hostess
to another^" Between tho two, come the receptions
of the President, and Colfax, Speaker cf tho House,
-which are pervertcily made to socially represent
the two great conflicting ideas of the day-the
policy of Congress and the policy of the Adminis?
tration. Thus, in the salons of one is found all
the moderation and patriotism of the clay; and fra?
ternizing in the other, come all the Jacobinical
throng that make the country unhappy and
jeopardize her life. The line is drawn ae closely
as though a count of the respective numbers was
to be takon upon the prevaihng representation of
each. Gen. Grant's, and a few mansions presided
over by merely leaders of fashion, unknown in po?
litical controversy, ara taken as the vantage ground
of .both parties, and hither they meet, and here
follow those cordial manifestations" of " hatred that
conduces to tho general cheerfulness and jollity of
the-situation I have described. jv
- ' HORACE 'OBEBLBT.. ^
This mistaken philosopher and -veteran rumina-'
I tor upon the general depravity of things, has been
in Washington for several days past. In personnel
he has not changed a whit this quarter of a cen?
tury past, and he still adheres to the notorious
J "di ab" and a "shocking bad hat." - Ha has with
him a daughter-a young Indy, bright, -vivacious,
but slightly pectuar. Horace has been escorting
her to receptions since their stay in tho city, and
it is proner to add that they made "no distinction''
in attending these entertainments, '?'on account of
.color" of politics; but made the whola rounds,
genial with all. It masing their -way through tho 1
crowds, it not unfrequenuy happneed that father
and daughter would be sepa-ated, and each engag?
ed by mutual friends until tho evening and crowd

Cotton-A. Word to Plantera.
To the Editor of Ute Daibj News:
Tho writer is no serbe-would that ho Ead tho
power of Jumus' pen to wield against thoso heart?
less enemies of "the land wo lovo," tho inveterate
cotton planters. God knows that most of our peo
plo have worshipped cotton for years, and that wo
felt that cotton could fight our battles without His
assistance. What was the result? Ho has seen fit
to scourge us terribly, and yet our peoplo, though
the avenging hand of tho Almighty has hardly !
boon lifted from thom, aro already hastening back j
to their idol-cotton. Thousands of our fanners
aro counting how many hands they can got to
plant cotton, how many dollars will that cotton
bring, and how many acres of land thoy can plant
next year in cotton. Their slaughtered sons aro
forgotten; thoir outraged wives, daughters and 1
sisters ore forgotten; thoy ride over tho asbos of |
their desolate homes in haste to. worship King
Cotton, not remembering that tho very chains
that now bind our country were forged by cotton.
Cotton built np the East, then the Southwest,
which, in time, built up the Northwest-which, in
time, rivetted our shackles-for if wo had hod to
.contend only with tho Middle and Eastern States
in our struggle for freedom, wo would havo hoc -o
war. Wo made cotton to buy Yankee tr asl o
buy Western corn, meat and mules, heed! 'y
destroying our homesteads by a most barba. . as
system of agriculture; and while all around us who
havo been buying our cotton are comparatively
rich, and then? lands improving in quality anil
prico, our cotton Holds are hideous and barren
wastes-monuments of.a pooplo's folly.
For raising everything calculated to add to tho
comfort and luxury of a people, wo arc satisfied
that the States "of North Carolina, South Carolina
and Georgia ?ill compare favorably with any part
of the world; and in point of health and salubrity,
we have no hesitation in saying that it is uuequaU
ed, being subjected to no extremes of heat, or cold.
The country on the seaboard, from Georgetown, S.
C., to tho St. John's River, Florida, we feel satisfie 1
in time will be justly doomed the garden spot of
the Atlantic shore. For manv years the writer has
been fully convinced that ootton plonliner hatwlnn?
more to min the States of Virginia,? North and
South Carolina and Georgia, than any calamity th nt
could, in the ordinary course of events, have be?
fallen, thom. Cotton planting was the cause of
many valuable plantations in this State being de?
populated of its negro labor to supply tho voraci?
ous cotton planters of tho West. Look at tho es?
tates, the princely parka, srrounds and ruins that
are to bo found in the wilderness from here to Sa?
vannah, along on tho main land, and ask candidly
the cause; and the reply will be by somo, the coun?
try is sickly; by others, the rich cotton fields of
the West could pay a higher prico for the labor
than the proprietors of.thoao estatos could, and
they had to go. .As for the health, we contend
that when people have taken the trouble to inform
themselves of the requirements of tho climate,
that there is no healthier and better climate in tho
world than can be found along our seaboard, and
that people livo as tong, and'raise os largo families
herc, as they do anywhere in tho world.
Whether the tearing up tho fields of tho West,
and dostroyirg a fine oountry that would havo
gradually been peopled np by the surplus population
of the South, in growing ootton (which cotton on?
ly went to enrich our enemies), was good policy,
we leave to the intelligent and candid to answer.
These few linos have boon written only to t> y
and get you to lend your assistanco, os well as to
got the press generally to exhort our planters gen?
erally to turn from cotton and go aftor such things
as will moke us independent of tho North, aud
unless we make more provisions our laboring popu?
lation will be enticed oft If some one of our ablo
and scientific men would write a description of the
seaboard of Soath Carolina, giving a description of I
its availability for growing grosser, cereals, fruit, [
Ac, it would be very acceptable to many very re?
spectable foreigners, who are desirous of making
their homes among us. Information of a reliable
and scientific nature, as well as a description of I
the climate and manner of life among our peoplo,
would ' do more to.promote emigration hero than
Pretty Sharp and Decided.
We copy the following paragraph from Friday's
QynstUulUmaX Union, published at Washington.
The editor of the Union, Col. THOS. FLOBEKCE, is
known to be a very intimate friend of tho Presi?
dent, and, perhaps, speaks "from the books.''
TBE BLOODY TREASON OF THE NEW TOBE HERALD.
Tho New York. Herold, of. the 17th instant, has
two articles on the subject bf tho impeachment of I
tho President, which for malignity and falsification >
of history have no parallel m journalism. While !
red-handed treason held the pen, bitter and unre?
lenting enmity to the Constitution and our form of
Government fired tho brain "which was bold and
wicked enough to say to the' world that what it
calls the ''misdemeanors'' of the President "render
him liable to impeachment.'' .
Tho transparent design of These articles is t*v1
move the minds of weak-kneed Jacobin Republi?
cans np to thoir work. Let them take this advice,
proceed in their wicked designs, and some morn?
ing, in other places and in a new condition, tho v
will realize the bitter consequences. Indeed, os
the Herald says, "the struggle is still going on."
"The great Union movement of the wax will run
its coarse," but not as tho Herold applies it-to
utterly destroy the -Government, but to save it,
and if necessary its strong and iron hand will bo
invoked to slay the course and prevent the con
sirmmation of Radical treason, ^teo great oath of j
the President to protect -and defend the Constitu?
tion will not bo forgotten, and the peoplo who sus?
tain him, with their five hundred thousand ma?
jority of the voting population- North and South,
will not forget him. Tho Herald cores not for con?
sequences. Nothing would please it so much as
to see ruin and anarchy rampant, i -Let thoso who
would take its advice beware.
UFOS WHOM CAN CONGRESS CALL?
Events have already brought the Government to
the very verge of another revolution. If the Rad?
ical majority in Congress pursues its treasonable
coarse much longer, the Government, in order to
sustain itself, will have to arm its supporters. At
the call of the President, all his friends North and
South, and the army and the navy will respond.
In such a contest the issue cannot bo doubtful.
Congressmen may bb valiant fighters on the floor j
* Congress, but when they come to lead their co?
urts int? tho field it will be another thing. Tho
real armies and great, soldiers of the Republic
will be found fighting nuder the Flag I We advise
the opposition-of the determined and fixed fact
that Andrew Johnson will serve ont' his constitu?
tional term of office, tr ";.
. THE NEW YOBS SOUTHERN RELIEF ASSOCIATION-.
SO-;many and .such well authenticated' accounts
'have reached the North of the terrible destitution
now prevailing-throughout a wide bolt of the lately

been sot on foot by a number of .ladies of this city
.to organize a' system for its prompt and ' effective,
relief. ' '
No political color whatever is tob? given to this
movement." It will have butene object-tho saving
.of them that aro ready to perish-and will be ad?

them who give. -

Messrs. Harris", Gaines '& Co., No" 15 Whitehall
street, will receive for them any more weighty
contributions, and Commodore Garrison has gen*
? eronsly offered to furnish a steamer for conveying
' to the South' the help" which it most sorely be

I have been for a year or moro past in the habit cf
taking the water of the "Excohdor" Spring of Saratoga.
Accustomed during the great portion of ray invalid lift
to noe the different waters of the oovoral fountains which
boil up alone that romarkaclo valley, dependant, indeed,
upon them for much of tho comfort ! enjoy, I am.aaus
fled that the Excelsior Water ia as wcB adapted se any
other among, thotrt, if not more GO? to the purpoooa for
which they ore' generally employed. It ia very agreeable,
strongly impregnated with the carbonic addi Uroly and
sparkling. . . . I can heartily and conscientiously
recommend lt to all who need a gentle cathartic and
diuretic. . SAMUEL HENRY DICKSON; M. D.
The Water ia put up in Pint and Quart i bootet, and
packed in good order for shipping, Pint?,,in boxes-of
four dozen each, and Quarts in corea of two dozen each.
