< The North German Parliament.
COUNT BISMARCK'S SPEECH ON INTRODUCING THE
DRAFT OF THE NEW CONSTITUTION.
[Berlin (March 4) Correspondence London Herald,]
. At the sitting of tho North German Parliament
to-day, Count Bismarck, as President of tho Fede?
ral'Commissioners, introduced tho draft of the
new constitution with the following speech:
I have tho honor, on tohalf of the allied Govern?
ments, to lay before the Parliament the draft of
the federal constitution, which has been agreed
upon between them. I add to this draft authentic
copies of the treaties upon- which the establish?
ment of the alliance rests, and of the protocols of
the conferences in which the draft was settled be?
tween the representatives of the Governments.
While submitting this draft for the consideration
of Parliament, I abstain from making any addition
to the speech m which t he King, my most gracious
master, opened tho session. To one point alone it
is my desire to invite attention.
Article 6 of the provisional treaty concluded Au?
gust 18, last year, says : 'The duration of the alli?
ance shall bo until settlement cf the new federal
relations, or for one year in case the new Confed?
eration shaU not bo established before twelve
months have expired." It is hot my intention at
present to enter into detail upon the situation in
which Germany would be placed if our work be not
brought to a conclusion by August 18 of the cur?
rent year, therefore in five pad a half months from
this date, I trust it will not occur. But I wish to
direct your attention to one fact, known to us ah,
viz : that the Diets, or at least several of them,
have expressly reserved their right of subjecting
the result of our deliberations to their resolutions.
Wo shall, therefore, be under tho necessity of
hastily convoking the Diets of twenty-two allied
States immediately after tho close of the session.
It is extremely desirable that this phase of the
matter should, be completed before the 18th Au?
gust. . ? ' ti -
A' new- reason' for accelerating our labors is
afforded by all those causes. Settlement by treaty
of our relations to South Germany, as they may
hover in a more or- less completed state before tho
minds of each of us, will, in my opinion, bo materi?
ally forwarded by rapid decision in North Ger?
many. The confidence of tho South Gormany
States, ir* a junction .with their North German
countrymen, will bo advanced in proportion as
they see that wc arc aule to stop ch towards our
object with decision, aud that it is near at hand.
In this direction also, gentlomen, ho reasons for
hastening our labors, and for coming to a speedy
understanding upon tho points as to which dif?
ferences of opinion may prevail. There is, un?
doubtedly, gentlemen, something in our national
character antagonistic to tho union of Gorman)'.
We Bhonld otherwise u-?thave lost unity, or should
have soon regained it.
If we look back to the time of German greatness
-tho epoch of the first empire-wo find that no
other country in Europe had the probability of
acquiring powerful national unity to BO great an
extent as Germany. Look through tho middle
ages, from the Russian dominion of tbo Rurik
Princess to the Visigothic and Arabian rulo in
Spain and you will lind that Germany, above all,
had the greatest prospect of remaining an united ]
realm. What is tho reason that made us lose om*
unity and has hitherto prevented our regaining itv J
If I am to characterize it briefly, 1 should say it '
appears to mo to consist in a certain cxhuberanco
of the feeling of manly indop( ndence, which causes
the individual, tho cummuuity, tho race in Ger?
many to rely more upon its o.vn efforts than upon
those of the generality at largo. It is this want of
adaptability in the individual and in tho race in
favor of tho commonwealth of that adaptability,
which has enabled neighboring nations earlier to
secure the benclits after which wo strive.
The governments, gentlemen, have given you. 1
think, a good example in tho present case. There
was not one umong them that has not been obliged
to sacrifice material scruples, more or less justifia?
ble desires, to the object np to tho present limo
attained. LeCus also afford the proof that i? a
history of sorrows extending over six hundred
?ears, Germany has gained experience which sho
as turned to account ; that wc-as all hore as?
sembled have themselves seen-have talton to
heart the lessons we were forced to draw from tho
fruitless attempts of Frankfort and of Erfurt. Tho
want of success of tho work there undertaken, has
brought about in Germany a state of insecurity, of
discontent, that has lasted for sixteen years,"and
could not finaUy bo brought to a conclusion, save
by such a catastrophe as that of last year, termi?
nating as God might apuoint. The German peo?
ple, gentlemen, have a right to oxpect from us
that we shall avert the return of such a catastro?
phe, and I feel convinced that both you and tho
allied governments have nothing more deeply at
heart than to fulfil these just expectations.
Our Washington Letter.
TSPECIAL CORRESPONDENCE OF THE KAILI NEWS.]
WASHINGTON, .March 23,1867.
CHIEF JUSTICE CHASE A8 A DISPENSER OF OITICES.
It came out in the Senato yesterday that thc
provision of tho Bankruptcy Act directing the
Chief Justice to nominate and the District Courts
to appoint the Registers of Bankruptcy, does not
work as smoothly as the Radicals had hoped. In
fact, it transpires that tho Chief Juptice. is over?
whelmed with applications for appointments under
the Bill, both by letter and in person. Senator
SHEEHAN stated ia course of debato that ho had
forwarded fifty petitions of this character himself
lo Mr. CHASE, the larger half of which ho knew
nothing about, and readily conceived that the
Chief Jnstico would be no better off in endeavor?
ing to reach a decision. The proposition to trans?
fer the appointing power directly to the District
Courts, and thus relieve the Ccief Justice of any
hand in the patronage, was not entertained with
any favor by the majority of thc Radical Senators,
and it seems likely that CHASE must reconcile him- i
self to discharging this new duty whether he will
Up to this time the applicants are mostly con?
fined to Southern districts, where it is supposed
that the Bankrupt Act will be most generally made
I available. In many sectiODS the fees cf the Reg
I ister will amount to a very pretty figure. In New
j Orleans, especially, tho ofiicc will be handsomely
profitable, and tho race for its incumbency has
grown to a scramble nearly as general as that
which has pertained these six weeks to tho United
States Marshalship for that District.
CHASE has been very non-committal upon the
subject up to this time, apparently awaiting some
cue upon which he could shape his recommenda?
tions with tolerable certainty of pleasing his Radi?
cal masters. A fe v weeks ago he announced, in
the case of the Louisiana appointment, that he
should hold himself governed by the endorse?
ments of the men who had been elected to the
United States Senate by thc Southern State
Legislatures-giving (heir preferences in the
premises tho same consideration thoy would
be entitled to, if actually admitted. But
the ruling was only made to open a way for
compliance with the recommendation of Southern
Loyalist HAHN, who, in pushing tho nomination of
JACK HAMILTON, of Texas, for tho appointment of
Bankrupt Register in New Orleans, claims to do so
by virtue of having been elected to the Senate, and
still retaining his credentials to a seat therein, be?
cause the State has not been represented in that
body since his assumed election. It is not r,t all
likely, however, that a similar consideration would
be vouchsafed other Southern Senators, even
should they be of the Southern loyalist school, for
HAHN wields peculiar influences over the Chiei
Justice, CHASE, which can only bo derived from
long and conspirative intercourse.
AN OLD STOBT REVIVED.
Few people who have icad newspapers for half a
dozer : years back will ha Ve much difficulty in call?
ing to mind the nine days wonderment evoked in
New York early in the present decade, consequent
upon the ill-assorted union of the daughters of a
millionaire with her father's coachman. Perhaps
the insanity of such procedure has been.' so
much oh tho increase of late years, that it will be
necessary io name the parties in order to refresh
a rememberance of the particular incident re?
ferred too. In the good old days when wars and
rumors of wars had failed to rock the continent,
and being a millionaire meant a bank account
founded upon something more solid than a ver?
dant t treasurer of greenbacks, Mr. BORER, a
banker of Gotham, lived on Madison Sqnare, and
led the ton,, charioted by a coachman named
DEAN. "This old man had a daughter''-MINNIE
Bo KER-beautiful, accomplished, and sentimental.
The result was, that MINNIE loved her father's
"whip"-which, allow me to suggest, was equiva?
lent to "kissing the rod1'- and married him, only
to discover, aa Madam DEAN, that the Bokerian
heart was adamant, find would never receivo her
more. And so the twain drifted out into the depths
of lower fife, and society was no longer scandalized
with the wretched story.
Now, after the lapse of these long years, comes
a reminder of the forgotten pair, in the simili tn do
of tho wife, MINNIE DEAN. About a month ago
the Samaritans of this capital had conveyed to the
Magdalen Asylum a woman calling herself MARY
MILTON, who subsequently was Jen o WK to be tho
forgotten daughter of Mr. BOEEB, but gunk so low
in the scale of depravity as to turn tho heart with
shudders. Of course the old, old story-DEAN,
the coachman, disappointed at not being taken lo
the breast of his father-in-law and fed on tho
sweets of wealth for the rest of his low-born days,
abandoned his wife and disappeared from view;
and she, first cleaving to shame that bread might
come, has finally sunk to tho dregs. Tito father
has gono long ago, and the heritage of his house
is sustained in another no less proud name.
MINNIE DEAN herself has flown beyond the reach
of her captors in the Asylum within tho'last few
days, and now figures in the advertisements of
police records, inviting, in humanity's name, her
return to thc guardianship she has escaped.
There was but a worn out remnant of life re?
maining to her when she fled to the old haunts ol'
wretchedness a day or two ago, and ?ts abandoned
tenement will not long avoid tho "Potters Field,"
THE RELIEF MEETING IN PHILADELPHIA.-The
meeting held in Philadelphia on Friday to adopt
measures to relievo the starving people of tho South
was largely attended by tho leading merchants and
business men of the city. Mayor Me Michael pre?
sided, and among the resolutions adopted were
the following :
The citizens of Philadelphia, in town meeting
assembled, are deeply concerned to hear that, by
reason of a failure of the crops and other causes,
there is a state of famine prevailing through large
portions of tho Southern States. There is accu?
mulative evidence to show that many thousands of
our countrymen are at this moment threatened
with actual starvation.
We assure our fellow-citizens of the South of
our cordial sympathy in their sufferings, and our
earnest desire to aid in mitigating the great
calamity which has overtaken thom.
Representing, as we do, a city which a benign
Providence has blessed with a redundant pros?
perity, and which, from tho days of William Penn
until* now, has nover turned a deaf ear to any ap?
peal on behalf of human suffern ig, we respectfully
invite our fellow-citizens, of all parties, sects and
occupations, to unite in a prompt and generous
effort for the relief of our famishing countrymen.
The meeting was addressed by tho Rev. Drs.
Broadman and Brooks, and John Welsh, Esq.
Committees were appointed to canvass the whole
city, and a large amount of monoy, it is believed,
wi?l bo'coll?ctod. During the meeting . the follow?
ing subscriptions wore made : S. & W. Welsh.
$500; Drexel & Co., $500 ; James, Eeut, San tee &
Co., $500; George W. Chilis, $500; John A.
Brown, $500 ; Joseph H. Dulles, $500 ; Ncwi.n,
Fernley & Co., $500 ; Wm. C. Patterson, $500, be?
sides six others for $100 each.
AN HONORABLE RECORD.-A well known magis?
trate of this city, says the Richmond Examiner,
whose testimony as to thc facts referred to below
is undoubtedly the most reliable that can bc ob?
tained hore, says :
"I was Commonwealth^ Attorney of the city .of
Richmond for twenty-one years, and in that long
interval I prosecuted only three Jews, and two of
them were most honorably acquitted, there being
not a partido of evidence to sustain the? charges.
During my fourteen years of service as a magis?
trate, only ono Jew was before mo for trial and he
was acquitted. In all that long interval I do not
remember having ever received an application for
public charity from any individual of eilhor sex or
any ago belonging to that faith. And, so far as I
am aware, no Jewish child has ever receivod even
tho benefits of our free schools, for which their
par?ate, without a murmur, pay their taxes."'
Tho Wadesboro' Argus says that Mr. John T.
Marsh, while procccdiug homo from this town on
Tuesday afternoon where ho bad boen in attend?
ance on court, and while descending tho hill be?
low Mr..Thomas S. Little's house, to cross Jones'
Creek, near Little's Mill (riding at the timo in a bug?
gy and having a friend with lum), thc breeching ol'
his harness gave wav, and the horso taking fright
dashed off at full speed down the hill throwing
both Mr. M. and his friend out, the former striking
his hoad with great violeneo against a rock. Hu
was taken up in an insensible condition, and lin?
gered until Sunday morning when ho died. At thc
timo ho was thrown out his hard was tangled iii
thc reins, and we beiiovc he was dragged some
distance beforo tho horso was stopped.
TUE WEATHER.-Wc have had very severe weath?
er hero for the past week. First, wo lind a snow
stoim sonic three or four inches in depth. Then
after a day or two of unsettled weather it com?
menced raining, and has rained almost constantly

[FROM O ?B EE G ? LAB CORRESPONDENT. ]
NEW YORK, March 22.-Tho Fenian free fight,
which took place here on St. Patrick's Day, and of
which I gavo an account in my last letter, has
created quito an excitement among the members
of the many Irish temperance societies which took
part in tho procession, for there is no gainsaying
the fact that whilst many of tho excited rioters
wcro under the influence of naosion, arising from
indignation against the truck driver^ who wanted
to ride roughshod through and over the patriotic
promenaders,-many were undoubtedly under the
influenco of bad whiskey. Wherefore' the Father
Matthew temperance men are ashamed of thc af?
fair, and have held meetings denouncing it in the
strongest terms, meanwhile do the wounded po?
licemen, with bandaged heads, swear vengeance
against drunken men in general, and inebriated
Fenians in particular-said schemes of revenge to
bo carried into effect at the first favorable oppor?
tunity, as soon as they have sufficiently recovered
from their injuries to go on duty again. The vast
quantity of the enemy that the fighting Fenians
put into their mouths on St. Patrick's Day, instead
of having the effect of stealing away their own
brains, came near causing them to steal away thc
brains of the truck driver and the reinforcing po?
licemen. The battle may not always be to the
strong, but it was on this occasion, and victory
perched upon the banners of those who were the
stronger from having paid their respecte to the
strongest kind of forty-yard whiskey. The up?
rising of the drunken Fenians resulted in the
down-falling of the sober policemen, but the
fighting is over now, here as well as at the other
end of tho cable-and all's quiot among the Fe?
nians in New York to-day.
The Herald publishes a telegraphic report of
the proceedings of the mooting of colored citizens
that took place in Charleston yesterday, and peo?
ple here comment freely thereon. Tho general
impression, so far as I havo been able to judge,
from conversations with persons of all classes,seems
to bo that the freedmen aro pushing matters
rathor hasty in prematurely demanding new rights
not yet granted thom, and that it would be a wiser
polioy for them to bear their honors more meekly
and havo a little patience.
Tammany Hall, in which so many politicians
havo been bought and sold, has itself been bought
and sold and delivered, and the Society has pur?
chased as a sito for a new ball the lot on Fourteenth
street, next to tho Academy cf Music, where onco
stood tho Medical College, which was destroyed
by fire. Tho lot cost eighty thousand dollars.
Tho celebration of the Jewish festival of Purim
yesterday was tame and lacking in spirit. This
arose from tho circumstance that all parties inter?
ested aro holding back for the great ball, which
cannot toko place before the 28th inst." as the
Academy of Music could not be engaged before
Die Ladies' Southern Belief Association, o F
which Mr. ARTHUR LEARY is Treasurer, have re?
ceived, up to this date, upwards of thirty-two
thousand dollars, w hich will be duly distributed
throughout the South, through the medium of the
bishops, and clergy in the Southern, cities. Tho
ladies, who - are tho officers of this ' society, and
whose names should be held in grateful remem?
brance by the Southern people, are, Mrs. Judge J.
J. ROOSEVELT, Mrs. ARTHUR LEAST, Mrs. S. M.
BARLOW, and Mrs. ALGERNON 8. SULLIVAN-. ;
A large number of citizens . held an indignation
meeting at the Everett Booms, last night, and
passed resolutions protesting against the three
tior railroad bill, as passed by the "powers that
Le' in the Legislature, at Albany. The proposed
triple lina is to run through from .Washington
Square to the Central Park, with an elevated track
running, in a portion of its course, through the sec?
ond stories of about ono hundred and eighty
houses, an underground-steam railroad, and a sur?
face horse road. Tho owners of the ono hundred
and eighty houses protest against tho French leave
seizure and appropriation of their property, and
will send a delegation to Albany to remonstrate
with tho groat powers there.
Tho groat Lioderkranz boll came off at the
Academy of Music lost night, and was a truly
magnificent affair. The costumes were varied and .
of the most elegant description. Here a malo
demon walking arm in arm with a female angel,
hero a satyre waltzing with a nymph, there MAB?
STUART leaning lovingly on the arm of a human
hyena, here a malo boar dancing with a female
shaker, there a monkey wlnspering sweotest senti?
ments ut love to a fairy^queen, thousands of tho
fuir sex and the unfair enjoying themselves to
their hearts content, and thc whole scene ht up by
hundreds of jets of gas, and enlivened by tho in?
spiring strains of music discoursed by the mam?
moth orchestra. Tho Arions, who give a grand
ball next week, will endeavor to out herod HEBO?),

SENATE.-A concurrent resolution was introduced
by Mr. Wilson, declaring that the confinement of
Mr. Davis without a trial is not in accordance with
tho demands of justice, and that he should cither
be allowed a speedy trial or released on bail. Mr.
Wilson asked that the resolution should be printed
and laid over, and it was so ordered. A bill was
passed authorizing the importation, duty froe, of
work of ait intended as gifts to tho United State ;
or to any State or corporation, with an amendment
authorizing tho Secretary of tho Treasury to dis?

in tho collection of tho direct tax in the Southern
The bill appropriating ono million of dollars for
the relief of destitute persons in the Southern
States was received from the House, with an
amendment providing that tho amount shall bo
taken from tho Freedmen's Bureau fund. The
amendment was concurred in and the bill was
passed. It now goes to the President. A petition
was presented from A. Bowio Dari? in relation to
the purchase by thc Government of thc franchise
of tho Washington and Rockville turnpike.* It was
roforred to the Committee on the District of
Columbia. Mr. Trumbull's bill to amend thc
Bankrupt act was taken up and, after a long dis?

ciary. A bill was passed to reimburse the State ol
Indiana for war expenses. Tho Senate then ad?
HOUSE OF REPR?SENTATIVES.-The bill for thc
relief of destitute persons in the Soutborn States
was taken up, and air. Bingham's amendment pro?
viding that tho money shall bo takon from the
Freedman's Bureau fund was agreed to. The bill
was then passed-yeas 96, nays 31. Tho resolution
in relation to tho removal of H. A. Smythe, Collec?
tor of the Port of New York, was taken up. A long
discussion ensued, and a number of amendments
wcro proposed, but no definite action was taken,
and on tho expiration of tho morning hour the
subject was laid aside. The House bill exempting
wrapping paper made of wood or corn stalks from
the internal revenue tax, with the Senate amend

taken up and au additional ami ndmcnt was adopt?

was then passed as amended.
Tho Senate joint resolution to furnish twenty
five hundred muskets to the State of Tennessee
was amended so as to increuse the number to ton
thousand, and was then passed. Soveral other
Senate Bills and resolutions of minor importance
.vero also disposed of. Tho resolution in relation
to the removal of II. A. Smythe, Collecter of thc
Port of Now York, was takon up under a suspen?

however, that they will agree with UB, that, in its
mainfeatures, the article is void of fact ?ind un

To the Editor of ?ie Herald :
? "The pen is mightier than the sword" must, we
suppose, be still received as a truthful saying,
although our faith in its verity was made to
stagger during the latter part of the war. The
sword absorbed everything. We had, in 1861,
about forty papers in th s State. Fire deatroyed
some; others suspended because of the deprecia?
tion of Mr. Memminger's "promises to pay,'* and a
few that held out to the very last were silenced by
the powerful logic of Invasion-so that in May,
1865, there were in all South Carolina but two
newspapers-viz.: the Charleston Courier and the
Columbia phoenix. You soo thus that the ravages
of wax had brought us to the very verge almost of
barbarism. Think of itt A population of seven
hundred thousand with only two newspapers.
And even these were of necessity vory much re?
stricted in their circulation, for railroads we had
none, nor post roadB, nor postmasters, and green?
backs were still regarded in tho light or rare
exotics. These two sheets, however, although
small in size and limited in their circulation,
might have been inst rum en tal in giving a whole?
some direction to public opinion,
The Phoenix, at Columbia, was established im?
mediately after the burning of that city hi Febru?
ary, 1865. by a few enterprising journeymen print?
ers impelled into this stop by the necessity of pro?
viding for tho immediate wants of their starving
families. Politically the Phoenix had no opinions,
and the few warning voices which were sometimes
found in its editorial columns came from the pen
of a private citizen, whose words of counsel, if
better heedod, would have led lo more satisfactory
results. Had we remained- quiet, as was then
counselled, and refrained from intruding upon the
courtesy and kindness of President Johnson, mis?
leading him by delusivo statements, raising false
hopes at home and creating a virtual deception at
Washington by making it appear that we, although
a conquered people, had not yet learned wisdom,
?nt were still desirous of following our old leaders,
nown in the past to have been hostile to tho
United States government, the South would long
have realized it H true status and nearly two yearn
of bitter political controversy might havo been
spared to the country, and the terrible penalty
consequent upon this ill advised and fruitless agi?
tation would have been averted from us. This ad?
vice, as is but too well known, was not followed,
and the Phoenix rapidly fell into the erroneous
opinions prevalent around it. Instead of leading
public opinion it followed.
Now a few wordAabout the':Charlcston Courier,
a journal which, remaining in Charleston at the
evacuation, ever looking after the main chanco,
astounded the community the morning after tho
advent of the United States troops by exhibiting a
wonderful metamorphosis. The Courier, that
boasted of having fired tho first (pop) gun in a
soluto to secession (which trophy now hes entomb?
ed on their premisos a sacred relic of I860), whose
senior editor, in a cutaway coat, with bright yel?
low trimmings, went to the front in the "W?ung
ton Bangers," and whose patriotism prompted him
to offer the munificent sum of ten thousand Mem
mingerian dollars for the hoad of the distinguished
member of the Massachusetts delegation to tho
Charleston Democratic Convention-this journal,
vociferously loyal' td the Confederacy to the very
hour of the evacuation of Charleston, next morn?
ing was as meek as a lamb. We here find one of
those physiological phenomena sometimes met
with at rare intervals, where, in consequence of a
stroke upon a particular part of the cranium, tho
patient becomes oblivious ot bis pa3t record;
sometimes the line of. demarcation is very faintly
drawn. It was so in this instance. Tho Courier
next morning recollected its Union record in the
days of n ullin cation, and again in thc days of "co?
operation;" but four years..of its existence were
erased from tho tablet of its memory.
Tho Courier was now the only paper in Charles?
ton, and, as we have shown, almost. the only one
in the State. It had a fine'opportunity of crea?
ting a healthy sentiment, of presenting to its
readers tho facts of our actual condition, and of
advising them to ?he'proper court;e under tho cir?
cumstances. What did the Courier? Nothing.
Just what it has always done. It has been in turn
on every side of every public measure that hos
agitated tho State during the past sixty years;
never leading, alway? timidly following far in tho
wake. The only, principles upon which tho. pap oi?
ls conducted are the principles of pohticii.Tocouomy..
Our people thus had no organ, no teacher. Such a
Eress could exercise no influence, and those who
ad formerly been our public ;inen preseryed an
ominous silonce, or meddled in public affairs with
About .August a new paper was established in
Charleston, with capital, it was understood, ob?
tained in New York. The publicatian of the
Charleston Daily News was hailed with satisfaction
by the community at large, and this popularity,
thus easily secured, has ever since rout ined with
the paper. It is more of a "live paper" than had
ever been known before in thoso paris. But un?
fortunately it also took tho wrong side. Tho writer
of its political .articles had clearly mistaken tho
temper of the Northern people, and no less so tho
stuff of which Mr. Andrew Johnson was made.
Morning after morning,.twelvo months ago, tho
readers of the News looked for that coup (retal
they'ii ad been promised. It did not come. The
political editor had proved a false prophet. Of
course this was not his fault. His calculations
were all correct, it was Andrew Johnoou who did
not como np to the scratch. The Mews, in the
meantime, having found that tho coup (Te,ut had
been indefinitely postponed, gradually "edged
oiF' from thc extreme Southern sido, and
last fall felt its way with a viow of advocat?
ing the adoption of tho constitutional amend?
ment. But the Orrites hod Philadelphia Conven?
tion on the brain, and could not see it. They
raised a row, and, with characteristic suppleness
(which is our only Bubstitute for independent
journalism in this part of tho world), the News
backed oat of its radical (?) position, and began to
forget that it had ever advocated such views. In
this the Nows made a great mistake. Hod thoy
boldly advocated tho adoption of tho amendment,
a pony would at once have rallied around them,
for there were all the while hundreds and thou?
sands of the mo3t intelligent men in favor of ac?
cepting thoso torms. The small fry of country
papers, who were all rampant Johnson it os, because
il was the fashion so to bo, would soon have fallen
into lino and talked eloquently in ita favor. Gov?
ernor Orrjhad ho boon more candhr-nnd more in
dopondonxin his course, wo verily behove, could
have induced the Stite to accept this amendment ;
and if South Carolina had done so at an carly date
there can be little doubt hor example
would have boon followed by other States.
Messrs. Orr and Perry really misled the poo
plo in reforence to the meaning of thc
several sections of this amendment. We do not
soy that that they did this intentionally. But
before rushing into print on tho subject, they
should have bcon curtain that they approached thc
subject without prejudico, and without reference
to its bearing on their own futuro. E:;-Govornor A.
G. Magrath, ono ol' our most far-sighted public
men, made no sccrot of Iiis views, which were de?
cidedly in favor of accepting the situation. Mr. C.
W. Dudley, cx-Sonator from Marlboro, S. C., if we
aro not mistaken, gavo his views in the Herald,
urging acccptauco of tho amendment. We know
of many others, who, in this proposition, saw a
prospect of tho settlement of our difficulties, and
they wero anxious to accept it. They wanted
au organ; but the News was afraid. They
wanted a leader; but our public mon either
were still too much Johnsoniaas, or too timid to
attempt stemming tho current. Thora was not a
single propohitiou in tho constitutional amend?
ment that a majority in tho wholo State could not
havo been induced to voto for, if proper moana
had only been used to enlighten thom. Thc dis?
franchising clause was tho bitter pill. But thora
were many who behoved that the country wonk!
not Buffer if tho old politicians were thrown over?
board. Here was a fino chanco for the Curlii, sup?
posing that there had been any among us. Why
did not our politicians como forward and say : "Jf
we aro tho only hindrance to a re-union of tho two
alienated sections of our country, wo make a
cheerful sacrifice, and are willing for tho sako ol'
peace and harmony to forego tho privilogo of hold?
ing office during tho remainder of our lives." Wc
griovo to say there were but few capable of such
In our notice of tho press of thc State, we will
not stop to Bpeak of tho Carolinian, commenced
in this city about firtteen months ago, and advo?
cating thc extremist of Southern views, lt did
not pay and moved to Columbia, where it has since
eked out a miserable existence. Its opinions, when
it has any, aro generally written from tho top of thc
fence, sometimes nicely balancod, moro lrcquent
ly, however, merely ridiculous and altogether un?
worthy of note.
A few months ago tho Mercury was revived un?
der its old auspices. Its past record it is needless
to dwell upon, for it is known of all men. It has
always been honest and independent in its views
outspoken and fearless in giving expressiv n tu
them. That it has dono much mischief to thc
people of this State wo sincerely believe; and its
present course, in our opinion, is calculated to act
prcjudcially upon the miuds of our people. Tho
Mercury is of all Bourbons the most Jkmrbonish.
lt never forgets, nor ever learns any i king. Or
perhaps wo should say it forgets, but learns
nothing; for it has dourly forgotten tho war
and its result. Tuc leaders io" ibo Mercury
still speak of the Constitution and ol' the Supremo
Court exactly as they did six or ?even years
ago. lt holds that the Constitutional Amendment
is unconstitutional, that thc Supreme Court cannot
sanction the Military Deconstruction Bill, that
Chief Jnslico Chase cannot decide as a liadical
upou this question, for did he not take an oath to
support the Constitution of the United States? and
is this act not palpably unconstitutional':1 lt holds
that negroes have no right to vote under this bili;
for provisional governments have not as yet been
inaugurated, &c But enough of t l c vagaries of
tho Mercury. It ia well edited, and ali its articles
marked by a most commendable courtesy; but wc
aro glad to be able to assnro you that it is without
influence. It represents nu one and cannot possi?
bly five. Its time is gone by. lt belongs not tu
this age. Its position is very much tba,:, of an
ichthyosaurus of the post pleioceneperiod acciden?
tally losing its way m the shallow waters of tho
Nineteenth century, and floundering on the rocka
as the tide washes even the modicum of water
(rom beneath it.
In conclusion, we should perhaps have stated
that the News has come out boldly in favor of ac?
cepting the Military Reconstruction Bill, and ol'
urbanizing under the samo at the earliest possible
late. We see it announced in its columns, that
Mr. Trescot. a writer of some ability, now shapes
ts political course. This is to be regretted, for
ipart from his having hitherto been a mere politi?
cal Bohemian, he is known to be the fugleman of
jovemor Orr ; but recently committed with Iiis
Excellency against negro suffrage, and now-in fu?
ror of it simply, it is to be suspected, as a moans
?6 the end of ins own .personal aggrandisement.'
Chat the" Ne wa should ina public manner'have.
>ntrusted its politics tonis keeping, is a blunder
vhich a more prudent proprietor would scarcely
lave been guilty of; for should he deem it conve?
nant or profitable to do so, the now political editor
