MONTGOMERY, January C.-General Swayne
kia issued an order suspending C. R. Hub?
bard, Clerk of the Circuit Court, from the per?
formance of the Montgomery County duties of
his office. The reasons alleged for this sus?
pension are that on Saturday a complaint was
filed iu the clerk's office by John T. Morgan,
attorney for a person named Frank Williams,
who claimed $100,000 damages for his false im?
prisonment by General Swayne at Selma. This
imprisonment took place during last year. On
the filing of the complaint, Mr. Hubbard issued
a eummons commanding the sheriff to summon
General Swayne to appeal- and answer the com?
plaint of the said Wilhams. As it was thought
that Swayne would leave the State on Sunday
morning, Mr. Hubbard directed the sheriff, if
General Swayne should not be ai headquar?

Government Aid f?r tue South.
THE VIEWS OF A LEADING NOBTHEBN JO U KN AL
AS TO THE PROBABLE OOTJBSE OF CONGRESS
A QOVEBNSIEir: LOAN DEPRECATED-THE BE?
FUNDES O OF THE COTTON TAX ADVOCATED.
[Prom the New York Times, January 4,]
The CHABLESTON DALLY NEWS publishes the
outlines of certain schemes for affording relief
to the So"them planters, which are said to be
now under consi ierati on at Washington. Three,
singled ont for special remark, are thus stated:
1. That Congress should authorize a loan of '
$30,000.000, tobo lent in small sunn to necessi?
tous planters, tl ie loan to bear six per ceut. 1
era, the loan to be distributed by local com. <
missioners of aiiproved position ana standixlg. '
2. That the government should lend the j
Southern people an amount equal to the gross
amount of revunue already received by the J
United States fr Dm the cotton tax, the loan to :
be secured, issued and distributed as under '
the first plan. ]
3. That the United States Government should
sell the gold iii the National Treasury, in ex?
cess of the sun required to meet current de?
mands, and lend the premium realized by its '
sale to the Soi; th, upon the terms and in the
manner before named.
One of these plans-though which is not '
stated-is represented as having received the !
approval of Gen. Grant; and the President 1
and Chief Justice Chase are mentioned among !
others as favorable to the movement in which
the proposition?, originated.
It is, of course, difficult to dorise a plan 1
which shall be s t ouce satisfactory to the North ?
and sufficient for the requirements of the
South. What would serve the purposes of the \
planters and freedmen may be easily under?
stood; they ueed provision.for present necessi?
ties, together with means" to enable them to
plant and cultivate the current year's crop. 1
But the States represented in Congress, being
asked to furnish both these forms of assist- 1
ance, may bo expected to scrutinize closely
any means designed to cover either charitable
rehef or the business aid which presupposes a
return of mont vs expended. And, looking at
the subject in this fight, we are skeptical as to
the chances of success which attach to any of
the proposition s submitted by and in behalf of
the South Carolinians.
In the first place, the idea of a loan by the
government to the planters is not an attractive
one. Nearly all loans of a similar character
have resulted in loss to the governments which
have attempted to combine with their ordinary
functions those of a banker and mortgagee.
Advances on tl ie security of land and crops, to
be safe, must te conducted according to sharp
business fashion. Titles are to be investigat?
ed and values estimated before a single step
can be taken; payments must be made gradu?
ally, with proper reference to expenditure on
account of ere pa; and the whole transaction
at every stage should be regulated by rigid
business rules. On no other basis could a loan
be justified. But howie the government to
enforce strict adherence to them ? Of its in?
ability to prevent losses arising irom the negli?
gence, incapacity or dishonesty of its ser?
vants, we have recently had too many proofs;
and there is no reason for supposing
that a S out ieru loan would be exempt
from the sane experiences. Expenditures
are tapped ty jobbery or peculation, and
collections by lazyness and robbery; and an af?
fair involving both payments and collections
amounting to ?530,000,000 would certainly eud in
a heavy loss to the Treasury. All the proba?
bilities point to this conclusion. The land of?
fered as security at this moment has no
known value; its market value is merely nomi?
nal; and the sum which a prudent mortgagee
would lend, b ?ing governed by appraised or
salable worth, would fall far short of the plant?
ers'requirements for the year. So also with
regard'to the crops. Everyman lending his
own money would be guided in his payment? by
the progress of the crops, and as a matter of
prudence would leave a wide margin for contin
Sencies. He would remember at every step
hat the mort ra gor might be unable to meet
his engagements; in which caso there would
be no alternative but an extension of time or
foreclosure and hurried salo. What would bo
the fate of governmont as a mortgagee in cases
like this ? W"hat disposal could it make of
plantations acquired by foreclosure; or what
satisfactory arrangement with planten, whose
crops may ags.in bo unprofitable V
If it be objected that cloee calculation should
not enter into a plan into which considerations
of feeling largely enter, v?d reply that a loan
sought with au air of business pretension can?
not be exemp *d from business rules. A plain
application f >r help, without reference to re?
payment, we could understand; but when it
comes in tho shape of a proposal to borrow
thirty millions, we are bound to look at the
likelihood on the part of the borrowers of ful?
filling the 8pi.'ci?ed conditions. On this ground
we think thst government, as trustee for the
people, cannot safely lend the money asked
for; and on ajy other ground we aro sure that
government cannot properly lend at all.
The proposal to intrust the distribution of
the money tc "local commissioners of approved
position and standing" does not improve tho
aspect of th s case. The advice andcoopera
tion of such men would be valuable, but politi?
cal considerations will, in.the majority of in?
stances, suffice to prevent their appointment as
agenta for the conduct of government business
or as almoners of its bounty.
Aside Iron: the general weakness of the loan?
ing scheme, there are evident reasons for re?
jecting the second of the plans reported by the
Charleston journalist, A loan to the cotton
planters to an amount corresponding with the
taxes they have respectively paid on their
crops might be urged with a certain degree of
fairness. But a loan to the South generally,
regulated by the taxation paid by a single class
of it? citizens, would be too capricious to be
just. The third plan has no claim to favorable
attention. How much gold the Treasury shall
accumulate, and what shall be done with its
surplus, if any, are queutions with which Con
gross is oxpected to deal on their merita. Aid
for the South has no connection with the policy
to be adopted for the adjustment of financial
difficulties, and none with the points at issue
between the Secretary and Congress.
Altogether, these Charleston schemes are
not calculated to impress the country favora?
bly as to the reasonableness or practicability of
the Southern ideas on the subject of assistance.
Prominent offioials may have spoken approv?
ingly of one or another of them, but we an?
ticipate little encouragement for any on the
floor of Congress. We have not a very lofty
opinion of the wisdom of that body, but it is
hardly uuwise enough to sanction the scheme
of a loan projected with so slight an appear?
ance of security or so likely to open the dour
to waste and fraud. This view, however, does
not imply indifference to the necessities of
the South, or the duty of Congress to render
immediate relief in a manner combining econo
I my and justice with efficiency and humanity.
Actual distress may, perhaps^ be most quickly
met through the instrumentality of the Preed
men*s Bureau, whose facilities for the distri?
bution of food insure the mitigation of misery
among the blacks. If on official inquiry the
want be found to be more general or more
lasting than comports with simple charity,
the same agency may usefully be employed to
arrange for the freedmen's necessities and to
tako as security for repayment a lien upon
their share of the crops they cultivate. With
respect to the cotton planters, we renew the
suggestion made some days ago-that they bo
refunded the amount of tho cotton tax they
severally paid on the last crop, not as a loan,
but as assistance which is vs arran ted by the
acknowledged influence of the tax in repress?
ing cultivation and rendering it unprofitable.
Th<) imposition of the tax is now admitted to
have been a blunder, and there would be no
impropriety in coupling with its repeal a re?
turn to the planters of the amount which
helped to swell their last year's losses.

FLAKS POE THE RELIEF OF THE SOUTHERN
PLANTING INTEREST-FURTHER PARTICULARS.
A Washington dispatch (Jan. 3) to the New
York Times says:
In forwarding to General Grant the reports
of Generals Ord, Hancock, Gillern, Scott and
others, rotative to the destitution and Butler?
ing at the South, Gen. Howard makes an in?
dorsement in substance as follows: That since
his annual report the tone of his communica?
tions from all points has changed; the sudden
fail in the price of cotton, and the failure of the
crop in large sections where good crops were
expected, caused by heavy rains and the cater?
pillar, have produced great depression, anxiety
and apprehension, lt is generally believed
there will be great distress from want of food
in portions of Louisiana, Mississippi and South
Carolina, and in small sections of other States,
before the close of winter, and that relief in
some shape must be furnished to prevent
the anarchy that may be apprehended. Gen.
Howard calls the especial attention of Gen?
eral Cirant to these reporta, and recom?
mends that the attention of the President
and Congress be called to them, with a view to
secure some thorough and practical mode of
relief, that will not have a tendency to pauper?
ize the people. It is suggested that if a fund
could be established from which employees
might draw on paying a reasonable interest, it
might afford temporary if not permanent relief.
General Canby favors this, or the issue of pro?
visions with a hon upon the crops. Mr. Wil?
liam Whale}', of South Carolina, recommends a
loan of $30,000,000, to be secured by bond and
mortsrage and other security. Generals Ord
md Hancock suggest the repairing of the le- '
?[gen ?rtd the issue of rations, io those ompjoy- J
pared to'suggest any complete* method ot re
ief or offer any detailed plan. He is fully !
iware that certain politicians bave taken ad
rantage of the suffering in regions where des- 1
;itution prevails to further their own peculiar 1
news or interests. They are trying to reduce '
;he price of labor to board, merely to get con- !
.roi of tboso who are thus impoverished, and 1
JO check or hinder the exercise of the rights of j
?he lauer as citizens.
Nevertheless General Howard recommends a
thorough consideration of the subject present?
ed, with a view to prevent evils that are feared
ind predicted by so many witnesses. It should
be stated in this connection that orders were
sent several weeks ago to the officers of the
Freedmen's Bureau, to relieve all pressing dis?
tress, and this week further orders have been
sent to Generals Ord and Scott to buy corn
ind distribute the same if necessary. There
is good ground for the belief, however, that
much of the suffering is prospectivo rather
than present, and the belief is further enter?
tained at the War Department that its extent
is considerably exaggerated. Most of the army
officers on duty in the Freedmen's Bureau,
mustered out on the first instant, who were effi?
cient and necessary to thu administration of
itu affairs in the South, will be retained as
civilian agents under appointment from the
Bureau. The appointments will be governed
by the Assistant Commissioners or military
officers in command of the district, who will
state the number of agents necessary, aud
proper persons to be appointed. These ap?
pointments will be made under section four of
tho act of July IC, 1866, authorizing the com?
missioners to make such appointments.
GENERAL MEADE'S POLICY.
General Meade will be hero to-morrow to
confer with tho President aud General Grant,
before proceeding to Atlanta, Georgia, to as?
sume command of the Fourth Military District.
It is generally agreed that the President has
requested Goneral Meade to follow np tho new
pohev inaugurated by General Hancock, but
the friends of Meade claim that he will do
nothing of the kind.
Although Senator Howard, as Chairman of
the Military Committee, has prepared a report
sustaining ex-Secretary Stanton from the
charges preferred against him under the Civil
Tenure act by the President, it is not true that
the committee have adopted the report for pre?
sentation to the Senate. The committee will
hold their second meetiug on the subject next
week, mid decide the matter. Mr. Soward
maintains that Stanton has fully answered all
of the charges brought against him by the
Executive. It is stated, by parties who claim
to be well informed in relation to General
Grant's ideas on this subject, that the latter
will, in case of the Senate sustaining Stanton,
immediately retire from the War Office, assum?
ing that tho law forbids him pursuing auy other
THE STATUS OF TUE SOUTU.
A dispatch to the New York Tribuno says :
It is stated here on good authority that the
President intends soon tu issue a proclamation
to the white people in the Southoru States ad?
vising them to send delegates to tho approach?
ing National Convention. A uumber of promi?
nent Democratic politicians have been urging
this matter for some time past. They aro tho
same persons who supported and helped him
in the famous Hancock message. It has not
yet been decided iu what form to make the
contemplated proclamation, lt is likely that
the President will run it in with some of his
communications to Congress. This matter is
creating quite a stir among Democratic politi?
cians. Many of them are opposed to it, and
say it is a dodge of Johnson to aid the niove
meut to make Hancock his successor. Those
who are pushing this schenib say that if tho
Southern States send detonates to the Demo?
cratic Convention they will be compelled to ad?
mit them or ab?ndern tho platform that theso
States are now in tho Union. It is tho chief
topic of talk among tho Democratic politicians,
who seem to think that the South will havo tho
balance of power in tLo convention, and that
their votes aro worthy being looked after.
DESTITUTION AT THE SOUTU.
The correspondent of tho New York Com?
mercial Advertiser (Republican) writes:
President Johnson bas assured Governor
Sharkey that he will send to Congress, next
week, a mossage ou the suffering now preva?
lent at the South, and will ask such legislation
as will grant speedy relief. There is good rea?
son for Believing that a largo majority of the
Senators and of the Representatives will cheer?
fully co-operato in relieving the distress, aud
in preventing doaths by famine. Proper relief
will do much to aid the desirable work ol' re?
construction, and to reunite the Southern
people to the Union.
THE WRONGS OF IRELAND.
Gladstone on Ireland-What ought to
be England'? Policy toward the Irish
People-The Most Important Political
Question ot the Day.
In a speech at Southport, England, on the
19th alt., Mr. Gladstone discussed Fenianism,
the wrongs of Ireland, and the remedies for
these wrongs. We quote a few passages :
It is, to say the very least, a matter of the
utmost sadness to consider that, after six hun?
dred years of political connection between
England and Ireland, that Union of heart and
spirit which is absolutely necessary for the
welfare of the country has not yet been brought
about. It is impossible to exaggerate the grav?
ity of the face, or, I may add, the gravity of the
responsibilities which it brings upon the gov?
ernment of this country; and, gentlemen, when
I say upon the government of this country, I
use that expression because in former times
the influence of the people on the direction of
Eublic policy, although for many purposes it
as always hod great weight, was far from
j being unanimous and united,
i Past history teaches us that there is a mar?
vellous power of enchantment ia the promoting
of just and fair dealing.
I would not for a moment listen to any plea
whatever for separate institutions and a sepa?
rate policy for England, or for Scotland, or
Ireland ; but this I venture to say, that in all
matters except that no man ought to be able
to say that any one of these three countries is
governed according to the traditions, the views
and the ideas of another.
We have not in Ireland that degree and
amount of active loyalty to and respect for the
law which is necessary in order to constitute a
thoroughly well-ordered and united communi?
ty. And we have thia painful circumstance,
that while large portions of the Irish popula?
tion from year to year have left the shores of
the country to pursue their fortunes in a for?
eign land, they have carried with them along
with a patient and tender attachment to the
soil, something that almost might be described
as a fierce resentment, an inextinguishable
aversion to the authority, the government, and
the institutions of the country; and for my
Fart, gentlemen, I own I am not satisfied when
hear people say : " Yes, that is so, but it is
because they are so unreasonable." Well, they
may be nu reasonable-we are all unreasonable,
more or less-we are all unreasonable, espe?
cially when we have suffered wrong.j
We must satisfy ourselves that as regards
thosa causes of legislation which bear upon the
permanent condition of a people we have Bet
ourselves in the right. What we want is that
those sympathies in Ireland which now hang
and float bewildered between law and lawless?
ness shall be brought into active alliance with
it; what we want is to have Ireland like Scot?
land, so that at last, and after all these gene?
rations, we may be enabled, instead of hearing
in every corner of Europe the most painful
commentaries upon the policy of England to?
ward Ireland-we may be able to look our
fellow-Europeans of every nation in the face
and challenge any of them to deny that we
have administered to tho sister islands the
full benefit of the principle of equal justice.
Old and inveterate diseases are not to be cured
in a day.
You must be prepared for a long and patient
well-doing toward Ireland up to the full bond
of reason and justice, though not one jot be?
yond them, if you wish to obtain ultimately for
yourselves or for your children that end for
which I never despair, viz: of redeeming the
reproach of total political incapacity to assimi?
late to ourselves an island within three hours
of our shores, and which has been under our
dominating influence now for six hundred
?ears, but I believe myself that in the case of
roland there is much even in the method of
treatment as distinguished from the substance
of measures in kindness, in sympathy, in re?
cognition, in equality, iii frank union, in all
where we can unite, that will of themselves
have a great effect in Ireland; and one thing I
will sav I will not do-I will not be a party to
endeavor to bribe Ireland into union with this
DOuntryby the mere vulgar expedient of doses
"UD6 Or ino great uitugu, um> w_
of all we have in view is this, we wislTto raise
Ireland to the dignity of perfect political free?
dom and the sense of responsibility which at?
tends it ; but you cannot raise Ireland to that
dignity of political freedom, if you seek to de?
press her spirit and to fix for her a servile po?
sition by doing for her in matten' of public
money that which you would refuse to the citi?
zens of countries of whose public apirit and
self-respect yon have formed a high estimate.
One word, and one only, on the subject of a
Parliamentary reform in the representation of
Ireland, because that, I am bound to say, I
take it for granted. I make no donbt, looking
at the declarations of the government and pro
[mety of the case, that we shall have for Lre
and a measure of reform not less equitable and
liberal in its spirit than that which has been
passed for England, and I hope more free from
particular provisions than are open to reason?
There is still another matter that cannot be
omitted-it is the state of the religious institu?
tions of Ireland.
You have got a small portion of Ireland hold?
ing that form of belief, which is, I apprehend,
the belief of the majority iu England, and,
therefore, the English ideas and opinions in
favor of the English form of Government are
carried into ireland, and the national endow?
ments of the country are given exclusively to
thu religion of a small number of persons,
comprising among themselves almost the
whole wealth of the country, while the multi?
tude or the poor of the country are left to shift
for themselves-that is to say, religious ine
?iuality exists iu Ireland in its most glaring
orin. Now, gentlemen, we would not endure
that in our country. If there were a Kornau
Catholic country, with a dominant Roman
Catholic majority, endeavoring to enforce upon
us the simple converse of that which we on
force.upon Ireland, to apply against us the
principle we now apply against them, I ask
you whether we should patiently bear it or
not. No, gentlemen, we should not bear it.
SAD SUICIDE OF A DESERTED WIPE.-A pain?
ful sensation was created among the boarders
at tho Wetmore House, New York, on Thurs?
day morning, by the suicide of a lady, Mrs. J.

past as the cashier of the establishment. A

opium lying by her side told the story. The
lady was from New Orleans, and had but re?
cently come to New York. Several letters
were found in her trunk, from which it would
appear that she had been for some time sepa?
rated from her husband, and had come to New
York to procure the means of livelihood. The
following letter is supposed to have been ad?
dressed to ber husband : I
"December 31.-Dear, dear Si: When you
get this I am no more. All 1 askod for in this
world was your love; it was denied me. Yon
have cast mo from you as you would a dog. I
cannot livo without you; my heart is broken. I
have loft yourifamily pictures and your slippers
with Annie Ashniun. If you wish, you can
writo to her, and she will give you further par?
ticulars. May you be happy, aud remember
your cvcr-Ioving but heart-broken
Another letter, addressed to the Annie Ash?
niun, 42 Jane-street, alluded to above, reads as
follows: "When I saw you yesterday, you lit?
tle supposed that it was the last time you
would fook upon me. When you said I looked
pale, I intended to tell you, but my heart fail?
ed me. I was discharged this morning, but
dear Annie, it is uot my fault. I have tried to
do my best. I wish my husband to think of
times when I was happy-yes, I was very hap?
py once, but I have beeu a heart-broken wo?
man for a long time. Tell my husband I for?
give him, and love him as much as ever."
FATAH AFFBAY IN FLORIDA.-On Christmas
day, while a largo number of persons were on
the street, Mr. George W. Gelzer, an old and
well known citizen or Jefferson County, and
formerly from South Carolina, was shot and
instantly killed in Monticello, Florida, by
Richard High to wer, a young man, and also a
citizen of the county. The parties had quar?
relled on the day previous, and Hightower was
on this day seen on the streets with a pistol.
Mr. Gelzer approached Hightower, who was
mounted on Ins horse, and after a few angry
words took Hightower by the arm. Intbis po?
sition, with the pistol almost touching him,
Hightower fired three shots, each taking ef?
fect, and one in the left breast, which caused
his death almost instantly. Hightower made
good his escape, but it is thought that he will
be overtaken and brought back to Monticello.

MILITABA- LAWS IN THE SECOND DISTRICT,
Geu. Cauby has not been timid in exercising
the authority given him by those so-styled re?
construction acts, which have converted the
whole South into a military satrapy; and, dan?
gerous as it is and must be to vest in one man
tbe power of determining the manner in which
the lives and properties of the people of a H tato
of the.Union are to be cared for or protected,
it must be admitted that, in some of his ac?
tions, Gen. Canby bas shown a liberal and
comprehensive spirit, which is worthy of imi?
tation in those districts where power is used
only for the purpose of tyranny and oppres?
It has for years boen a subject of complaint
that Charleston, the metropolis of South Caro?
lina, bas bad to bear far more than her just
proportion of the taxation of the State. This
arose from the fact that in the city real estate
was taxed at about its value, while in the coun?
try the bare land was taxed at a nominal rate,
while the improvements upon it, however val?
uable, were in no way included, lu the State
Legislature the country represe atation was so
powerful that this unjust condition of things
could not be changed. But the pen of the mili?
tary commander has been more potent than the
voice of the representatives of Charleston, and
in the tax bill arranged by Gen. Canby for the
Coming year.every acre and foot of land, with the.
improvements upon it, will be taxed according
to its marketable value This section of the
ni iL t arv tax order hos given general satisfac?
tion in the State, and that satisfaction has
been increased by the fact that the rates of
taxation generally have been lowered in such a
manner os to encourage trade and foster the
?rowth of commercial business. General Can
y Las also done well in decreasing the tax
upon the gross receipts of newspapers in the
State; and there is every indication that it is
his determination not to attempt to crush by
taxation those organs of public opinion which
are working for the maintenance of peace in
the Sonth, and which, at the best, return to
their conductors but a meagre return for the
incessant care and attention which they re?

A HOIIBIBLL CANNIBAL STOHY.-A horrible
tragedy is reported from the Island of Fiji,
South Seas. Tho Rev. Thomas Baker, with an
assistant missionary and six native teachers,
went to visit some inland tribes, and he and
his party wore brutally murdered by one of the
tribes, who are described as the most confirmed
cannibals. The writer says : "In this town
(Longtown) there lives a notorious cannibal,
with whom I had a little conversation. Ide
pointed me to a pile of lmmt-.n bones in the
fork of an orange tree under which we were
sitting, and assured me that he had eaten the
men of which each bone there was a represen?
tative, and that he had kept these bones as a
memento of his cannibalism. Many other
things did this inhuman wretch make known
to me, and his countenance, and more than or?
dinary worn teeth, only helped to convince me
that he had literally been a bone-crusher. To
have listened to this man's statements, and
told, too, in the presence of those who could
have contradicted them if false, would have
removed forever from the minds of some the
idea that Fijians are not lovers of human flesh.
This vile cannibal confirmed that, as for eating,
nothing was comparable to bum an flesh, not
even jowls or pork."
