THXTRSDAY MORNING, JANUARY 24,1867.
Omi BANKING FACILITIES.-We very often hoar
complaints respecting tho bank facilities of the
citv. Thoso who complain aro doubtless not
aware that tho actual capital which tho present
banks are using is very Bmall, and that they are
not able to grant the accommodations which wcro
usual before the war, when Charleston had four?
teen or fifteen millions of banking capital.
Wo arc pleased to learn, however, that arrange?
ments have been made by the First National Bank
to increaso its capital stock, and that those who
desire can purchaso stock by applying to tho
President of tho Bank, any time beforo tho first
of Februarv. From all wo know, no better invest?
ment could bo made, as tho bank has declared
splendid dividends ; and it is most probable that,
with an increased capital, ifc would pay ita stock?
holders a very admirable interest upon their in?
THE TROUBLES KHAR. SAVANNAH.
We deeply regret the difficulty that has arisen
on Back River, in Beaufort District, in this State,
opposite Savannah, between the negroes and the
U. S. troops. Thflse freedmen were unwilling to
yield peaceable possession of aplautation (known
as the Delta plantation) to tho rightful ownor.
They claimed a right to tho land, not because they
had "any title or had given any consideration for
the same, but because ono Alpoora Bradley, ?
colored lawyer, hailing from Now York and Boston
had told them that he would secure them posses
! sory titles. Gen. SCOTT, upon application, sont
' first a small squad of soldiers, afterwards a Lieu
j tonant and fifty mon ; but tho ontire negro popu
lation of thc island hoing in open revolt, the Lieu?
tenant in command did not deem it prudent, under
the instructions ho had, to attonipt to carry out
orders. Gen. SCOTT, on boing informed of the
facts, himself repaired to the scene ; but wo have
had no reliable information in tho matter later
than what is contained in last Monday's Savannah
Although this occurrence ia much to be regret
ted, thore is nothing remarkable about it. Tho
two races, the wliitoa and the blacks, have long
livod hero together in peaeo and perfect good feel
( ing. But that was before the negro was taught to
look with suspicion upon his former master. With
the thousands of emissaries, missionaries and
other mischief-makors, to work upon the ignorant
and credulous minds of tho negroes, nothing can
be expected but just such antagonisms of races. Wo
have hitherto been singularly oxempt from them
in this State, but our turn must come.
We hope no false and garbled accounts of this
erneute will go North. Gen. SCOTT must be deem?
ed an impartial witness, and we aro perfectly wil?
ling to take his version of tho affair. Our social
and political condition at present is ono of peculiar
delicacy, and collisions between the two races may
bo looked for at any tims; and if our Northern co
temporaries will only deal fairly by ns, and not
wilfully misrepresent the condition of things, we
can havo no cause of complaint. The angels are
not all black, nor the demons all white. Hear
both sides, and condemn neithor unheard.
THU CONDITION OP TUB COUNTRY.
Liberal government in this country was on its
trial in 1661, and notwithstanding the utmost
efforts of iis frionds to defond, to roscuo and to
save it, it foll in tho severo ordeal. Civil Liberty
and Self-Government wero found a failure. They
were weighed in the balances and found wanting.
Liberty died amid tho shouts and insane Bhrioks
of hor worshippors. Tl is is entirely in accord?
ance with the predictions of the great founders
and framers of our Government, and all tho true
statesmen who havo sinco adorned the pages of
American history. Yet tho boast, of all others most
common, in the Northern publications of tho past
two years, is that tho United States, aftor under
going a long and gigantic struggle for self-preser?
vation and territorial integrity, has como forth
triumphant, bidding defianco to "traitors" within
and foes without. v jt a word ?B said of the sub?
version of all, tho moro mention of which once
swelled the heart of P very American with pride.
If you as much as nam o tho "Constitution of our
Fathers," you aro laughed at.
FOSTES, in a bold metaphor, spoke of tho reek
less who crushed the worm that ne vor dies. It is
so with the men who now constitute tho rulors of
this country. Appeal to them by all that is sacred;
let tho President in his sovoral veto messages show
thom, in unanswerable arguments, that tho Con
stitution, tho organic law of tho land,-devised
slowly, carefully, aftor years of deliberation by the
first minds and best men of that or any other age,
is diametrically opposed, in lotter as in Bpirit, to
all their acts, to their very ideas of liberty as of
legislation; his arguments aro not called in ques?
tion. No one takes the pains to Tefute them. They
are laughed at; they are thrown by with derision.
Appeal to the old, the venorablo, tho sacred ! they
"tread on the worm that never dies 1" Tho appeals
fall on deaf ears.
A majority of the Judges of the Supreme Court
still recognize their obligations. Thoy remombor
that their tribunal was instituted for a high and
noble- purpose; that their sphere ?B as it should be,
high above tho pestiferous atmosphere of faction
and party wrangling. The Supremo Court decides
that several of tho Acts of Congress, passed with?
in the last few yoarB, aro unconstitutional,-at va?
riance with the fundamental principios of tho Gov?
ernment. Ono would think that such a decision
should causo Congross, and the tumultuous mil?
lions at its back, to pauso, and to consider that if
those wise old men. whose lives have beon spent in
tho st;.uy of tho writings of our constitutional ex?
pounders, and who alone of all tho officers of tho
Sovernment enjoy a position that should be secure
Crom tho*influonce of the madness of the hour,
f they deem it their solemn duty to tlirew them?
selves into tho breach between Congress and tho
Constitution,-there must be danger. But, no I
Congress, the creature of a day, tho indiscrimin
ite agglommeration of school-boy smartness, of the
;oarso bully of the stump, thc fiorco old partisan,
md tho sordid and unprincipled speculator,_is
viser than a whole bonch of SOLON?. They heed
iothing save their own blind, unbridled passions,
ind tho unscrupulous dictates of their party lead
>rs. They care not for tho Constitution nor for
he Governmont, nor the people; not for honor,
:onsistency, or character, and most assuredly not
br the nover-to-he-forgotten negro. None of these
hinge move them. Tho preservation of tho Radi
?al party, s continuance of power, is the only ma?
we to be looked for in all their t': oughts, words,
The President is an obstacle in their way-he
nust bo removed. Tho Supreme Court' proves an
idditional hindrance-it must be re-organized.
)ignity, consideration, self-respect, propriety,
:ommon decency, all havo long since boon ex?
tolled tho Capitol. A higher law governs their
onduct, viz : Their " own selfish and vindictive
lassions. When the "irr?pressible conflict" was
aaugurated by WM. H. SEWAHD, ho little dreamed
hat he would fall one of its first victims. AN
ISEW JOHNSON was deemed a good Republican a
3w years ago, or he would not have been ?lected
?ce-Prcsidont of the United States by a Black
iopublican Electoral College. SEWAHD and JOHN
DN stand now where thoy stood then. They havo
ot retrograded, but the impetus of the party has
eon onward. Thoy roused tho sleeping dragon,
od now they aro ready to liv in terror from beforo
im. They conjured up tho evil spirit, but they
innot lay him. Sober, thinking men, mindful of
mscquencos, they stand appalled at their own
ork. And they aro doing what they can-at
?mpting to stem tho flood that threatens, in a
lighty inundation, to overwhelm the land, and
ary everything in its swooping course. Tis vain,
io lion is unchaiued, and will tear or dovour
hatever comos across his path.
"Revolutions ne vor go backwards,-' is an exprea
on quoted at least once even- twentv-four hours
i thc editorial columns of the New York Herald ;
id that fiendish shoot-but yosterdav tho friend
SEWAHD and JOHNSON, of COWAN and DOOLITTLE,
-the advocate of a mild and statesmanlike course
reconstruction of the Southern 3tatea,-now
oats m tho idea of the mischief it has made, and
i now daily engaged in fomenting ; and with mean
ess unparalleled, ia goading on the Congressional
matics to prosecute tho impeachment of tho
?resident ; and, wo have no doubt, oro loug will
ounsel Iiis conviction and death sontenco. Al?
ead}', in discussing tho impeachment we per?oive
L indulges iu a satanic double entendre when using
he word "decapitate." .
Tho future before us is gloomy in the extreme,
dio question of impeachment looms up like a
lugo spoctrc, throwing its deadly shadow upon
?very industry and enterprise in the land. Stocks
uro falling, provisions are rising. Credit sinks.
Jonfidenco ia falling both at homo and abroad.
Mon go about with a vague terror dopictedon
,hoir brows, loth to look at tho telegraphic col?
win in thc morning papor; afraid to meet 3omo
low, wild and reckless schomo on tho part of those
jreatest of iconoclasts, since the days of 1793.
Thc subject is a painful one, and though we
aave touched only upon thc morost outlines, we
mist leave it for tho present.
