VOLUME V.NO. 635. CHARLESTON, S. C., MONDAY MORNING. SEPTEMBER 2, 1867. PRICE FIVE CENTS
he Charleston Dally Xcws for 1S6S-Im?
Encouraged by the recent large increase in
he circulation of THE CHARLESTON DAILY
NEWS, the proprietors are happy to announce
that, with the opening cf thc new year, the
price of subscription will be reduced to a figure
which will at once place the paper within
the reach of every family in the city and
throughout the State. On and after the first
of January, 186S, THE DAILY NEWS will be pub?
lished at Six DOLLARS A YEAR, payable, in all
cases, in advance. It will then be, without
exception, the cheapest first-class journal in
the Southern States. There is no good reason
why our community should not be furnished
with a live daily newspaper at a rate approxi?
mating that of the sprightly penn} press of the
Northern cities : and the very generous support
which has been accorded to us on all sides has
hastened a step, long contemplated ou our part,
towards meeting the popular want. It is hard?
ly necessary to say that there will be no dimi?
nution in ihe amount or interest of the reading
matter in any department of the paper; on the
contrary, it will be our constant effort and out
pride to make it, day by day, more full, reliable
and entertaining-the spirited compend of the
world'9 news, the mirror of local life, and the
mouthpiece of an enlightened and liberal pub?
At the solicitation of many of our friends in the
country, we shall also, during the first week in
January, commence the issue of THE CHARLES?
TON TRI-WEEKLY NEWS. The subscription
price will be THREE DOLLARS A YEAR, or Two
DOLLARS FOR SIX MONTHS, payable always in
This reduction in our rates will, we know,
be all the more welcome to the public, inas?
much as it comes at a time of unprecedented
financial distress, when there are few, indeed,
among our people who do not sorely need every
dollar that can be saved. We do not permit
ourselves to doubt that our enterprise will be
rewarded with a steady increase of that popu?
lar appreciation and support of which we have
hitherto received so liberal a share. THE
DAILY NEWS already enjoys a circulation
largely exceeding that of any other journal
now published in this or the adjoining States;
and its readers may rest assured that, in thc
future, no effort will be spared to increase the
attractiveness of its columns, and to extend
still further the field of its influence and use?

A mixed delegation from Virginia, North and
South Carolina, visited Mr. Stevena yesterday.
The following was elicited: Mr. Stevens said t ba:
he regarded the impeachment failure an evidence
of the fickleness of public opinion. The Virginia
delegate said the failure lo impeach the President
would work seriously against reconstruction. Mr.
Stevens thought that it could not bo otherwise,
and mutual regrets were exchanged. The North
Carolina negro, Harris, said they would get along
very well; Northern whites were more frightened
about negro suffrage than Southern whites. Ho
said that ex-Governor Holden was the lifo and
blood of the Republican party in North Carolina.
The Virginia delegate represented the aonditiou of
things as critical, and that unless Congress came
to the relief thc sufferings of the colored people
and white Unionists would lao torri-le. Mr.
Stevens favored tho repeal of the clauco re
quir-ng a majority o? the registered voters. The
delegation thought that would do, but suggested
a law empowering the convention already called
to establish provisional governments imme?
diately. Then if the constitutions wero defeated,
they would have, at least, loyal State officers. Mr.
Stevens said that he had drawn up a bill with two
or three beneficial provisions; one was to leave
the majority to ailinn cr reject constitutions; ano?
ther, that the present conventions shall, as inde?
pendent bodies, establish governments, in lion of
district commanders, as soon as constitutions wero
ready for submission to Congress. Tho delega?
tion approved this. Mr. Stevens inquired ?vh'.-ther
their old masters would be able to seduce tho nc
gioes from voting properly. Harris replied that
the negroes were dependent on their old masters
for daily bread. Thero was danger, bnt Harris
hoped thc negroes were capable of enduring great
privations. The Virginia delegate, Cook (colored ),
said that Harris' remarks applied to his district.
Eight hundred persons .u Richmond had lost
places. Mr. Stevens hoped tho whole Southern
vote would be cast for tho Republican party, this
would elect a Repubbcau President, and assuro

THE DISTURBANCE AT ATHENS, GEOHUIA, already
noticed by telegraph, is thus described by the
Athens Banner ;
During the last week there have been alarming
deiuorstrations among the negroes. Tho first
was an assault on two white men, by a negro ai
the dark-unknown to us-m which the white niO'j
were severely pelted with bricks. Tho other was
tho collection of nearly a hundred negroes on
Tuesday night, armed with guns and pistols, and
threatening vengeance on certaiu white per ons.
Wo understood the immediate cause of the deinon
stiation grew out of tn ; first dfficulty, above re?
ferred to. Through ihe prudence and vigilance of
Intendant Pittard and Major Knox quiet was re?
stored without bloodshed. Just after dark Major
Knox addressed the negroes, and fora limo they
dispersed ; but soon aller assembled in Jackson
street, and a crowd of whites, composed of police?
men and citizens, vero on thc ground to aid the
Intendant in restoring order. A larijo number of
students also were at Laud, but as tuo iro of tho
negroes appeared to bj especially bitter against
them, they, at thc suggestion ol Intendant Pittard,
rein ed to their homes. About hulf-p:isi tea a <?e
tacument of soldiers came down and dispersed the
negroes, preventing for thc time what threatened ?
to be a seiious and bloody aflair.
The origin of this unpleasant ailair Beel 18 to
have been in sumo jostling iu the crowd nt thc
post office delive rv, to Avenge which the two yuuuu'
men were assaulted in the dark with brickbats
and seriously injured. A negro, charged with tho
offene/, was arrested, but was discharged by con?
sent of all parties. Further jostling occurred at
the same place, on subsequent oec isions, between
white and color, d youth, whereupon the negro
posse armed themselves to avengo their (?iic
vances. Ihe real cause oi tue whole trouble wo
relieve is, thc inflinimatorv harangues of one of
the colored preachers, who,'in referring to a war
of races, told his hearers to bc armed and re.idv

Counsel of an Old Time Virginia Sta!
man-Hon. K. T. Hunter on thc fri
-His Hopes of thc Future of Hie Olti 1
In thc Virginia Conservative Convention,
Thursday, Hon. R. IL T. Hunter hoing called u]
to give hid views as to thc proper policy of
Southern people at thc present juncture made
address full of practical good sense. Ho cc
menccd by saying that his own public career i
closed forever, and that his counsel would bc si
ply the suggestions of a private citizen.
Refe/ring to thc future he said he was at a I
aB to what was before us. If ho were to take I
recent emotions as n test of thc feeling of I
North, he could hope that the cup of univer
negro suffrage woul 1 pass from us ; but if ho mi
take thc Reconstruction net as tho ultimate a
final decree o? the Congress which must rulo us
least for tho next two years, then ho had only
choose between military government or the cont
of tho colored race. Between those alternatives
had no hesitation in saying that he preierrod t
military control. Under military government
waa contr lied by mon of his own race ; educat
men who acted under thc responsibilities of th
commission and insomo degree under tho conti
of a President who wo know to be disposed tc
us justice, and accord to us. as fir as he could, o
constitutional rights. If wo wore to bo plac
under thc control ot thc black race in the count
between the Potomac and thc Rio Grande, it w
not difficult to divine the results, tt o had the e
perieuce of Hayti and Jamaica before us. Thc
wa? no doubt but that it would result in tho fi

was to destroy all the clem nts of material pro

this after tho first election. The black* woul

white race, and act only for their own good. A

if not exactly her old soT, will be a great State
again. Thc ?imo must come when Bho will hitch
on to the F?deral train as groat as any in her con?
stitution of freight and passengers; and who shall ,
say that the trumpet of leadership may not be
placed once moro in her hands. Mr. President,
every man has sometimes a belief for which
ho cannot exactly account and which seems
to como to him more from intuition than reason.
Such, perhaps, is in fact the foundation of my
laith in the future greatness and prosperity o'f
Virginia. I believe, sir, that tho seed of Anglo
American civilization was first sown on thc silent
banks ol thc Jamos for some divine purpose. It
is now noarly three centuries sinco tho Anglo
Saxon carno," tho master buildoi of forms of gov?
ernment, with his compass and squaro to lay tho
foundations of thc immense social lab-nc which wo
uow sec around us, etuoracing almost every varie?
ty ol climate and raco WAI li are known upon
earth. From that seed sprang the "Old Domin?
ion," tho mother o? States and of statesmen. It
was she who gave to tho Devolution thc leader ot
its armies and to tho Union thc man more than
any other who may bc considerod its founder and
the preserver of it in infancy. It was she who
gavo the author of thc Declaration of independ?
ence, and tho long lino of Virginia Presidents un?
der whose guidance the beginnings of empire wore
laid which are the most painful Bteps in a nation's
progress, ilcrgre.it mission seems to have been
to promote individual liberty as far a? was consis?
tent with thc existenco of Democratic Republican
government. Wo appeal to history to sustain the
assertion that whenever the Federal Government
was under tho influence of Virginia principles tho
people were harmonious, prosperous and happy,
ind to soon as that government departed from
those principles trials and discontent have arisen.
Tuc o.d state of filings has passed away; concen?
tration and consolidation arc now t ,o order of tho
Jay. Time will ni tko up tho issuo betwo m Ibo old
?tatc of things and tho now; history will record
that issuo, and impartial posterity will pro?
nounce the verdict. I will not undertake to pro
iict wbat it will be, but, as a Virginian, i do not
Tear tho result.
Mr. President, I hopo for bettor things, but -?Iii!
[ will look to tho future in its worst aspect. Sup?
pose that a temporary supremacy ot thc black
race should be forced upon us. WoTnust meet it
wil i a manly fortitude, a patient endurance; wo
must do nothing inconsistent with our self-re
jpect or wound the honor of our pcoplo, which to
nations is tho pearl of greatest price. Patiently
ivo will b:tlc our time until thc reaction conn s, as
usurodlv it must. Tho interests of tho North
will not endure thc wafite of so much of tho
lourcos of its wealth an 1 prosperity; nml may I
not hope that ?ta feelings will also forbid our sub
ectiou to snell domination. Such a stato of
Liiinprs cannot last. We could not even bc threat
: ned wit li such a danger if tho passions and bit?
terness of the contest had not obscured the judg
nent of those who now govern. Those passions
nust subside before long, and tho volcano will
?urn ont. For this I trust not only to natural
causes, but to Providence, which wili not permit
:Uo destiny of 6iich a State to bo marred or leave
tstnio -'half untold."
lu conclusion, fellow-citizens, as Lord Eldon
laid amongst tho best of his utterances, "i sub
nit the cause of my country to that Great Being
vho can say to tho madness "of tho pcoplo as ho
:an say to tho raging waves of tho ocean-Hither
ihall thou come, no further."

Tho Washington correspondent of tho Baltimore

Thc President did not send any nominations to

In thi? communication tho President, sets forth

\mong these are tho conduct of Mr. Stanton in

Tie dispatch of General Baird giving an account of
ho threatened riot at New Orleans, which, bad it
jeun communicated to tue President, would have
?used, tu Mr. Johnson holds, fitcps to havo becu
aleen to prevent tho riot.
Another point made against Mr. Stanton is that
ic himself declared tho Tenure of Office bill uncon
iti'.utional, and sug,'estod a part of tho message
rot oin : that bill. The conduct of Mr. Stanton in
tttcmpting to bold bis position in tho Cabinet
