Of McArdle that Congress had the power to

by war; but that, as the war is over and
peace prevails, such legislation must be carried

HILTON HEAD, S. C., February 5th. 1808. J j
L. S. Langley, Esq., Member Constitutional Conven- ,
tion, South Carolina, Charleston, S. C.:
DEAS Sra : Your favor of the 3d inst., in re- 1
ply to my letter to you of the 28th ult., was
received by last night's mail. ;
In reply to your request to permit my name i
to be put in nomination as a candidate tor Con?
gress from the Second Congressional District, i
composed of Charleston, Beaufort, Colleton ]
and Barnwell, permit me to offer you my un?
feigned and heartfelt thanks for the compli?
ment thereby paid, confidence reposed, and
deference shown, because prompted by motives
in strict accordance (as I know your delegation
is aware) with my sense of propriety and fatness,
of things; acquired ability, qualified by adapta-! 1
tion, ag'.- and experience. ' t|
It is scarcely necessary for me to repeat ]
what you have frequently known me to ex?
press, the greatest possible discretion and i
prudence in these first steps in the incipiency :
of the enfranchisement of our race in this i
country. Every step taken by us should be '
fraught with prudence and caution, lest there- i
by an en ir prejudicial to the efforts of our I
friends in and ont of the councils of the nation, I
and fatal to our cause, might be committed.
It is not necessary to our claims as American
citizens, nor important to the accomplishment
of that end, that a black man at this period be
a representative in the national halls of legis?
lation. This, let me insist with emphasis, the
nation (the American people generally), are
not readv for. And this sentiment, however
undesirable, must be yielded to by us. And
when they are ready for it, of course there will
be no objection, and consequently no harm
done ; (.nd should they never become ready,
then that will be the end of the whole matter.
Let our great and good-hearted friend Wen?
dall Phillips, outside of the councils, claim
what he pleases-it is right. His sentiments
are as essential to the political life of the na?
tion, as oxygen to animal life. And the same
also with the great and good statesmen inside
of the councils. But too much of the one at
the wrong time, would assuredly produce the
extinction of animal fifo ; and too much of the
other at an improper time, in like manner
prove the destruction of our hopes and the
cherished political issue of our friends.
Whatever they may claim at present as our
rights, they do so as white men, apart and par?
cel of the dominant race, who desire to express
for the nation, sentiments of generosity toward
the black race, for their fidelity, patriotism, and
deeds of military valor in the recent life strug?
gle of the country. This they can afford to
do ; but we should not presume by reason of
tbiB or our numbers, to assume these positions
I repeat the expressions of approbation in
my letter of the 28th of January, of your and
Mr. Whipper's course in convectioD,*of liber?
ality and leniency toward the late oppressors
of our race; but am as I was in regard to the
Vice-Presidmcy, entirely opposed at this peri?
od of political experience of the country, to
any person identified with the black race enter?
ing any council of the nation as a member.
A legal objection to myself would be, that 1
am not a resident of South Carolina, conse?
quently ineligible; and therefore most respect?
fully d?chue the proffered honor of your nomi?
nation-an bonor as complimentary to me as
it is liberal aud generous in you to offer it.
Be pleased to make known my views in full
to your delegation, with my heartiest thanks
for their higb consideration, and accept the
warmest regards, with which
I have the honor to be, sir,
Your most obedient servant,
M. B. DELAN!.

M'CULLOCH-GENERAL HANCOCK'S VISIT TO
WASHINGTON-THE GEANT BECONSTBUCTION
BILL-TELEGRAM FBOM GENERAL MEADE-IN?
TENTIONS OF THE RADICALS.
The Washington correspondent of the Bal?
timore Sun, writes under date of the 18th
The public are daily misled by parar,, apha
from Washington, purporting to give authen?
tic statements of the President's defence in the
impeachment trial, his purposes,&c. It should
be known that these statements are founded
upon merest speculation and curbstone gossip.
None of them, there is the best authority for
saying, has been derived from Air. Johnson
himself, or from his counsel or Cabinet, who
alone have the President's confidence, or are
advised of the plan or points of defence.
There is also authority for an undoubted de?
nial of the truthfulness of the New York Sun's
assertion that Jndge Black has stated to Mr.
Johnson that he has no hopes of an acquittal.
Of the same kidney is the allegation that the
President bad considered the proposition to
resign, or that he ever intimated to any ono
such a purpose.
Certain parties opposed to Secretary Mccul?
loch have got np petitions, addressed to the
President, asking bia removal, and thc peti?
tions are being numerously signed by men of
both political parties.
The partisan statements which have been
made to the effect that the President's object
in summoning General Hancock to Washing?
ton was to use bim, if pnssible, in the further?
ance of some desperate design is utterly with?
out foundation, as may be supposed. It is the
desire of the President to obtain a clearer in?
sight into the circumstances attending the re?
moval of the New Orleans city officers and
their subsequent reinstatement by General
Grant, and it is for this purpose, as well as to
consider the application to be relieved from
duty at New Orleans, that the President wishes
General Hancock's presence here. Under the
Supplementary Reconstruction act of July last,
the Executive is deprived of all supervisory
power over General Grant in this matter, but
the information sought to be obtained will be
useful in other ways.
The Military Reconstruction bill conferring
dictatorial powers on General Grant, which
gave rise to such an extensive and able debate
in the Senate, lasting three weeks or more,
has, since the bringing of the impeachment
matter on the tapis, been suffered to sleep
quietly on the table, not having even been for?
mally referred to the judiciary committee. The
dispatch of General Meade, ?f January 12, re?
lative to the rescinding of the test oath, had
some influence over the minds of the Radical
majority, and it is not unlikely that, had the
bill como up, or should it ever come up, his
suggestion will be adopted. General Grant
sent the diapatch to tho Senate to-day. In re?
gard to tho bill, it cannot now bc safely assum?
ed as to what its ultimate fate will be, but
there ia quite a strong disposition among the
Radical Senators to pretermit action on it
pendine the result of the impeachment trial.
Many of the Radicals pronounce the re?
moval of President Johnson as a foregone con?
clusion, and the only diversity of opinion that
exists among them is as to thc timo it will take
to effect their wishes. Now while it is con?
sidered very proper and necessary to hamper i
an opposition President, and prevent him j
from exercising any control over the military }
dependencies in the South, the case assumes j
a very different aspect with an Executive of
their own way of thinking at the head of the \
government. With Mr. Wade in the White \
House, no fears are entertained that the Con- i
gressional policy of reconstruction will bo car- j
ried out to the very letter, without the necessity <
for any additional legislation. If Mr. Wade j
can be placed in possession by the time the i
nominations for the Presidency are made, and <
the campaign fully opened, it will not be consid- j
ered worth while to pass the bill; but if, on a j
:lose calculation of chances, this result should r
not appear probable, the bill will be pushed t
through. Notwithstanding the fact that Gen. i
3rant has come to be regarded as the Radical
candidate for the next Presidency, he has only c.
been 80 accepted on the acore of availability, j
md many of the loading Radicals here have i
swallowed him with a wry face. The power pro- E
posed to be placed in his nanda was not intend- t
jd as any mark ot favor to him, bat only that it c.
mould be used to further and perpetuate Rad- (
cal ascendency. If they fina they can get i
dong without him no doubt need bo enter- j
tamed that they will gladly do so. t

Tho Washington correspondent of the Balti?
more Gazette writes : }
Although the counsel for President Johnson 1
give out as their confident opinion that theie ]
is no danger of his convicton, yet there are
those here who profess to believe that the court
at impeachment will prove to be but the Radical ,
Senate, and that the President will "go under''
by a strict party vote.
"lt is quietly reported among the President's
friends to-day that Mr. Seward is to leave his
Cabinet, probably to-monow, aa he is expected
to return trom New York to-day, ana that :
Charles Francis Adams will be nominated as
his successor. The result of such a change, 1
just at this particular time, will be the charge 1
by the Radicals that tho President ia attempt?
ing to influence the Senate, or tho court, by
holding out to tbem the temptation of office, ;
if not to the judgea directly, to such friends as
they might designate. The President will want '
but seven Radical votes, and these,, it is be. ;
lieved, be will get, not from that portion of the
body which might be suspected of having an |
"itching palm, but from the head and front
ot ti}6 party. Yet the charge will no doubt be 1
made that fhe President is bringing the influ?
ence of EJ ecutive oatronage to Dear on mern- '
bera of the Court of Impeachment, and thou- j
sands throughout the land will be ready to be?
lieve it. The nomination of Mr. Adams as ,
Secretary of State would be certainly rejected
by the Senate, as the Radical feeling against 1
bim ia even greater than against the present '
It is said among the Massachusetts members
of the Radical Jacobina that it was Charles 1
Francis Adams who advised with his son, John
Quincy Adams, and prompted him in his late
Democratic contest for the Gubernatorial chair ?
of his State. .
The Hon. Thad. Stevens resembles in some '
respects one of the feline species which ia said ?
to possess nine lives. One set of reportare ?
and correspondents write Mr. Stevena down, at
night, as dying-as in tho last agony, with his
friends and colored family around hir.i, sadly <
watching for the final dissolution. Another j
set of these news-distributors, next morning, ,
report the member from the Lancaster Dis?
trict as in his committee room, laboriously en?
gaged on reconstruction, not of himself, bat of
the Southern States, or as being "on the floor <
for awhile to-day and looking about as usual.'' <
The truth is. Mr. Stevens has a remarkable I
tenacity on fife, but, nevertheless, his friends 1
are prepared for his death at any moment, and <
thus apprehend that when he dies his "taking 1
off " will be quickly done. 1
The business of the country, as affected by i
tho political movements of the day, ia pro nptly ?
and very correctly photographed cr reflected 1
by the business of the several departments of i
the government here. When confidence is un- j
impaired and business healthy, the depart- ?
ments here are the first to show it by the con?
stant onward flow of public business of every
description. On the other hand, when confi?
dence is shaken and business stagnates, the ;
departments become mere bureaus for the
transaction of unimportant routine matters.
Such has been their condition for a week past,
and such it is likely to remain for some weeks
to come. The Chief of the Currency Bureau,
or Comptroller of currency, says his mails are
an unerring indicator by which to guage the
prosperity or depression in the business in the
country, and show, with remarkable nicety, the
changes as they occur.

THE ASH LEV PHOSPHATES.
A BALTTMOBE OPINION AB TO TH KlB OBIOTN, EX?
TENT AND VALUE.
[From the Baltimore Gazert?, March 19.]
For nearly fonr years the City of Charleston
successfully resisted all the efforts of the Fed?
eral Government to compass her subjection,
and for one-half of that period she withetood
the fiercest assaults of the besieging forces.
Hated with savage intensity OB the metropolis
of South Carolina, and as the bitterest and
most influential opponent of Northern fanati?
cism, all the appliances ol a merciless strife
that could be devised by a people numerically
powerful and singularly ingenious in expedi?
ents, were brought to bear for her subjugation.
Devastated by fire and shell; the grass grow?
ing in her streets, and the more vigorous por?
tion of her inhabitants either dead, mutilated
or dispersed, the closo of tho war found her
ruined. Since then she has been making
earnest efforts to re-establish her old pros?
perity and importance. Connected as her peo?
ple are to ours, by many links of friendly feel?
ing, and by mutually beneficial commercial
relations, wLatevor may tend to revive and in?
crease thc prosperity of South Carolina affects
ns nearly. Of the many lined of steamers car?
rying on a coastwise traffic with the States of |
tue Southern seaboard, the line to Charleston
is one of the most important. Bound thus
closely to thal city, both by our sympathies
and our material interests, it gives us no ordi?
nary pleasure to record a discovery that pro?
misee to be of more than ordinary service to
her commerce, and to bring wealth to at least a
portion of her people. It has been for some?
time past a matter of rumor that immense beds
of rich phosphates have been found on the
banks of the Ashley River. The importance that
attaches to such a discovery, in view of the
rapidly increasing demand for fertilizers of all
kinds, is very great. If the Charleston deposits
can compete in richness of organic remains
with the phosphates now imported in such
large quantities from islands m the remote
Pacific, their proximity to a market moat give
them such an advantage over all others as
would in itself ba eqn?j to a bonus. What was
once but rumor has since been coriflrmed; but
it ie only within a short time past that the
Charleston deposits have been subjected to
scientific analysis, and our knowledge of them
is as yet somewhat imperfect. This much, haw
ever, is certain-all the indications point to
rich and exceedingly valuable beds of phos?
phates, extending in varying thickness for an
unknown distance along the line of tho Ashley
River, and probably fanning the substratum
of the soil upon which the City of Charleston
itself is built. Along the river side these de?
Ksits, averaging about a foot in thicknas and
gely composed of organic remains, are known
to cover an area of several squaro milts.
From the smooth dark brown appearance of
the crust of tho phosphatic rock, which is first
reached, the numerous holes made in it by sea
insects, and from the character of the remains
found embedded, it is conjectured that the
mass at somo far distant day must have been
subjected to the dash and wear of tho sea
I?UVC3. Under this phosphatic rock ia a strat
im of stiff blue clay, iu which is found innu?
merable bones of tho shark, whale, zeuglodon,
mammoth, and of other animals, whose very
mmes carry the imagination back to the world
acfore thc flood. Miugied with those-time as
Tell as misery, sometimes bringing together
strange bcd-fellowB-are the more modern r?
nains of the deer, tho norse and tho wild hog.
Under this stratum is a third deposit of white
marl, uuusnally rich in phosphoric acid, con?
dining perhaps four or five per cent, of this
valuable fertilizer, whilst ordinary white marls
rarely exceed a fraction of one per cent.
Professor A. Snowden Piggot, of this citv,
vhilst residing South, ?v?tor tho close of the
.var, examined the extent, and investigated the
-.ature of these several piiosphatic deposits.
Se states that tho superincumbent ruck "is
issentially a mixture of the phosphates of
imo, iron and alumina, with sand and carbon
lie of lime-the amount of phosphoric acid it
:ontains being equivalent of 54.95 per cent, of
jone phosphates of lime." Ii his conclusions,
is well as thoBC of othe.'s, as to quantity and
mality, are confirmed by subsequent research?
?a, the commercial value of these deposits
nnstbe very great.
In what manner the ages have wrought their
ihanges upon the face of our globe continues
o be, to a great extent, a perplexity to geolo?
gists. At periods so chronologically remote
LS to make our Biblical records, as literally in
erpreted, seem modern, the bones of myriads
if land and marine animals buried beneath the
Hity of Charleston, and under the soil of the
Vshley River, grew br gradual accumulation
nto "stratified deposits. And, what seems
itranger still, even among the uplands ot Ala
jama, more than a hundred miles from the
tea, and stint in from the latter by intervening
?anges of high hills, almost inexhaustible beds
if marine shells are lound, lhere is only ono
vay in which to account for the presence of |
hese enormous shell banks so far in the inte?
rior. Obviously the sea must ct one
ime have covered that region. When, we
snow not-that is a secret guarded by the
a?st, and impenetrable eve a by tbo keenest in?
vestigations of science.
The theory as to the deposit of organic re?
mains discovered in the vicinity of Charleston
s not simply plausible, but is probably cor?
rect. It interfeica in no wisc with tho present
topographical aspect of that region, and is
:onfirmed by tho changes even uow going on,
there and elsewhere, ulong the coast. Tue
City of Charleston, like the cities of Loudon
indP.iris, is situated in what resembles the
segment of a basin. That elope of the basin
crom which the contle is cut out is towards thc
Bea, and through it the Ashley and Cooper
Rivers debauch into the harbor. During the
tertiary period this scoop of land was probably
a sound, subject to tue flux and reflux of the
ocean. Between the sound and the open sea
there must have been long stretches of sand and
alluvial pierced by irregular and shifting chan?
nels. Up these inlets, at stated seasons of the
year, immense schools of fish came to feed,
Sud larger sea animals to prey upon them.
Freshets, filling the rivers ae they traversed
the interior, would bring down supplies of food
and empty them into the sound. Sometimes
the carcases of wild animals would bo floated
down, and their bones would be added to the
annually increasing accumulations on the Ban?
dy bottom of the sound. Finally, partly by
gradual accretions of soil, andjpartly by "slow
upheaval, the waters were pushed back, and
the deposits emerged from the surface of the
water, as the shore line of Maine is even now
slowly rising, and as, in futuro ages, the banka

A CONVEBSATION WITH MB. STEPHENS.-The
news of the leading men of the nation upon
the present political crisis are much sought
ifter just now, and newspaper correspondents
seem to be doing their best to supply the pop?
ular demand. The Washington correspondent
af the New York Herald has had an interest
mg interview with Alexander H. Stephens,
i\ith "tfhom he conversed freely upon the situ?
Mr. Stephens thinks that we are tending to
centralization, we are approaching Asiatic gov?
ernment, which is the concentration of all th i
functions of government in oue, and makes all
?he others subservient and moved only by the
lictation of the power in tho asceudancy. To
the question as to what was his opinion'of the
political prospects of the South, Mr. Stephens
said he thought the prospects of tho South
were gloomy in the extreme. He saw nothing
but utter rum. The prom.ecuous enfranchise?
ment of the blacks throws the control of 6ix of
the Southern States entirely into thc hands of
in inferior race; that for a time the blacks
might be satiefied to exercise their political
privileges in harmony with the whites, but
with tho knowledge of the power thus placed
in their hands it would be but natural for
them iu a short time to insist upon exercising
that power to the exclusion of the whites. The
effect of registration, he continued, has com?
pletely demoralized the negro, and though,
fortunately, the crops of last year were matur?
ed before reeistration set in, the mass of the
negroes BOOW little disposition to quietly
settle down to the necessary labor
of preparing the crops of the next.
In regard to " reconstruction, " Mr. Ste?
vens said-"I think the policy of Mr. John?
son was generally accepted by the thinking
people of the South as the true grounds o? a
restoration of harmony between the two sec?
tions. Indeed, I think this was the unanimous
opinion of the people, and in tho enforcement
oi the opposite policy it is a fixed conviction
with them that their doom is Bealed. A war of
races seems to be the inevitable consequence.
Ia that event the white population would do I
ori3 of two things-quit the countrv or remain
and fail. For my pari my mind ie made up.
I have not long to jive. I will stay and go
down with the ship; btit to the young, I would
counsel them to find t omes elsewhere." Mr.
Stephens was deeply aifected at this portion of
his conversation, and with a firmness of tone,
a flash of the eye, he rose to his feet, and ner?
vously striking one hand in the other, said: "I
am prepared; I will re:nain and perish with the
CELEBRATION OF ST. PATRICK'S DAY.-The
observance of St. Patrick's day seems to have
been very general in nil tho principal cities of
the country, especially in Baltimore, Wash?
ington, Philadelphia, New York and Boston.
Of the celebration in Slew York the Herald re?
A procession comprising about forty thou?
sand men marched iii avery orderlv "fashion
through the streets, with bands and'banners,
exclusive of the Brooklyn societies, which
turned out twenty thousand strong in their
own city, and they we.:o greeted on the line of
march by moro than two hundred thousand
sympathizers of both Hexes. In New York the
procession was reviewed by the Mayor. In the
evening two or three societies in this city, and
others in Brooklyn, Jersey City and Staten
Island, finished the festivities with the usual
annual banquets. Tl tis is one of the demon?
strative ways in whicl. our Irish fellow-citizens
show their devotion to their ancient nation?
One of the most inf eresting incidents of the
day was tbe dedication of St- Patrick's Cathe?
dral, on Mulberry-street, which was destroyed
by fire some two ye irs ago. The immense
edifice was densely tlxonged, though one dol?
lar admission fee wi.s levied at the doors.
Archbishop McCloskey, Bishop Bacon, of Port?
land, with many o th tr clergy of the different
orders, took part m the ceremonies, which
were of the most inposing and impressive
THE LATEST EDIT row OF WEBSTER'S UN?
ABRIDGED DICTIONARY-.-The first appearance
of Webster's great Dictionary in 1828, made an
epoch in English lexicography. This, we be?
lieve, was fully felt ar d acknowledged, not only
in this country, but in England also. In pre?
paring for the presen ; revision the attention of j
both editor and the publishers was first direct?
ed to tho etymology. In 1854 arrangements
were made with Dr. OL A. F. Mahn, of Berlin,
Prussia, to undertake the task. He was em?
ployed several years ipon the work, and has
performed it in a manner worthy of his high
reputation. The revision of webster's defi?
nitions is another capital feature, which, to
those unlearned in ti e languages, will be still
more interesting. * * We see not how any
gentleman's library can make decent preten?
sions to completeness withont this edition of
Webster.-Jttchmont Christian Advocate.
VIOLENT WBMRLWIS-D IN GREENVILLE.-Tho
Greenville Enterprse of Thursday says
"Yesterday, about ene o'clock, this town was
visited by ono of th? most violent and terrific
gales that we remcm ber over to have witness?
ed. At fir3t the blowing was very moderate
but in a few minutes afterwards it assumed
almost thc proportions of a hurricane. Several
chimneys were blown down, two on the Man?
sion House, and ono on tho premises of Mr.
W. H. Watson; a portion of the Episcopal
Church steeple was "hurled below; the tin on
the roof of Mr. W. l?. Hovey's store was torn
off. Several trees were uprooted, one in
Governor Perry's front yard, and another on
Main-street, opposito the postoffice, besides
others in different localities. Tho destruction
to window shutters, fences, etc., must have
been considerable. Wo have not heard of any
