A .Mississippi Delegation at the White
House-Unsatisfactory Interview with
Thc Washington correspondent of the New
York Herald writes under date of the 24th
At half-past two o'clock to-day, a delegation
of Mississippians had an interview with
President Grant. The members of the delega
rion present were Colonel L. W. Perce A. My
gatt, General B. B. Eggleston, William H.
Gibbs, Major E. J. Castello, A. Alderson, Dr,
C. A. Foster, Major J. G. Jewell, Kev. Dr. T.
W. Stinger, Colonel C. P. E. Johnson, Colonel
J. B. Webster, J. A Jamison and General H
W. Barry. They were introduced individually,
by Colonel L. w. Perce. After the introduction
Col. Perce addressed the President briefly, and
stated that they bad called upon him to con?
gratulate him upon bis election and to ask
his assistance in passing the Mississippi bill
now before Congress. The President remarked
that he had seen the bill reported, but he did
not know in what shape it would pass Congress.
Ho had conversed with at least three of the
Reconstruction Committee upon the subject,
and he did not think it likely tbat the bill would
be passed in a form to bring peaco to Missis?
sippi. Still Congress had all the evidence on
the subject beforo them. Colonel Perce ex?
pressed a confidence in the wisdom of Con?
gress. The President said there was no way
for the restoration of Mississippi except by the
action of Congress. To him the most feasible,
the least expensive and the quickest way to re?
store the State seemed to be to give the Gov?
ernor of the State, who is also the military
commande1:, time to appoint all the officers un?
der the - tent law ot Congress, then re?
submit i constitution to *he vote of
the peopie allowing all to vote who
ave qualified under the ReconslrucMon acts,
and no others, Congress selecting such articles
as they deem ne teesary to be voted on sepa?
rately without allowing them to affect the con?
stitution as a whole. There were, he said,
portions ot the constitution that might be re?
jected, and perhaps ought to be. Colonel
Perce here suggested and urged that the
President of the convention, who is authorized
by the bill under consideration to appoint
the Stale officers, being better acquainted with !
the people and their wants, would be better
able tomato judicious appointments than the
military Governor. The President, without
making any definite reply, arose, and the dele?
gation retired, highly disgusted and indignant
at the unsatisfactory result of their interview.
Theyexpressei themselves when away from
the White He ise in strong language against
President Grant, and even went so far as to
wish hun in a warner clim ato than Washing?
Another Visit of Aliaaieaipplans to the
A Washington dispatch of the 26th inst, to
to the Baltimore Sun says:
To-night a company ef Mississippians, rep?
resenting the Conservative and Republican ele?
ments in that State, Judge Simnaerell, ex-Gov?
ernor Albert G. Brown anl Mr. Watson, of the
former, and Judge Jeffards, Captain Fisk and
Major Wofford, of the latter, visited President
Grant and were introduced by Judge Dent.
The interview was exceedingly pleasant ard
satisfactory. The President thought the best
plan of quieting the opposing parties in Mis?
sissippi would be for Congress to authorize the
constitution to be again submitted to the
people, a separate vote to be taken on the fea?
tures objec'.ed to by the Conservativos, and
that in the me intime the present military
commander should control the State.

nutual protestations, vows of constancy, and

biogs; and now, being able more impartially
o scan tho unhappy Clara's disposition and I t

THE WAR X-V CUBA..
The Revolution as Seen by an Eye Wit?
ness-Condition of the Insurgents
Their Policy and Means of War.
The following account of the condition of
things in Cuba is furnished bj Air. Charles
Mccormack, who has resided for several years
in the City of Puerto Principe, where he was
employed as master machinist of the Puerto
Principe and Nuevitas Railroad. Mr. Mccor?
mack having travelled on horseback from tbe
place of his late residence through the heart of
tbe island to the first railway station from
which he could take the cars to Havana, and
passed through the insurgent and Spanish
lines, a distance of more than one hundred
leagues, during which time he held frequent in?
tercourse with all classes of the population, has
had the opportunity to form a valuable appre?
ciation of the revolution now on foot. Tbe long
distance he was compelled to travel on horse?
back makes his dates not so late as the news
we have published, but as an inside view of the
revolution it will be found interesting:
The . pupation of the line of railroad from
Puerto Principe to Nuevitas having left me
without employment. I determined to return
to th J Unite 1 States. I pro tired the neces?
sary papers from Colonel Mena, the Spanish
Governor of the city, and started with a com?
panion, on horseback, by land, tor Havana, on
the 12th of February last.
At that timo tho native male population,
with the exception of th? small children and
very old men, had entirely left the city in con?
sequence of the revolutionary movement. The
native Spaniards, mostly shopkeepers, had en?
rolled themselves in tho volunteer corps, and
were exceedingly bitter in their hostility to tho
Cubans. These, with tho small number of
regular troops in the city, gavo Colonel Mena a
force of about 8000 men, well supplied with
arms and ammunition und a few field pieces.
There had been a regiment of colored troops
in the garrison, but these had nearly ali de?
serted to the insurgents, taking their arms
with them. The roads loading into tue town
were all barricaded by the Spmish troops in
the outskirts. Operations against tbe insur?
gents were confined to an occasional foray of
the Toops for provisions and forage,which were
usually made in strong force and encountered
little open resistance, though on every occa?
sion they encountered a constant ambuscaded
fire both in going from and returniug to the
The feeling of the natives of all classes is
very decided for the revolution, and young and
old, rich and poor, have gone into it. General
Dulce's proclamations of amnesty and reform
at first produced some effect, and many were in
favor of accepting them. Among those were
one, if not two, of the Arango's, and one of
tfcem had begun negotiations to that effect.
For this purpose he had held communication
with Colonel Mena, and appointed a day when
be would come in unarmed under a flag of
ti nco to confer with bim. It was stated in
Principe that Colonel M ena'j orders to tho
squad sent to meet Aran no were to bring him
the corpse of that rebel. The lact was that ho I j
(vas shot as soon as he approached the suburbs '
sf tho town, and tho remains were hacked and
iisfig tired after death. This event stopped en?
tirely the feeling in favor of accepting the am?
nesty and reforms among tho Cubans.
Tho insurgont force gathered round Puerto
Principo amounts to about 7000 men, and I
a-as informed that 8000 moro were holding the
line of railway bot ween that city and Nuevitas.
They aro very enthusiastic in ibo cause, but , ,

landed strips of the hard woods of tho coun- ?

o the making of a weapon for offensive pur
>oecs, and a lance- and mach?te-a short, heavy jj
iword-wero the general armament. A few
tad breech-loading riflo3 captured from the .
Spaniards, but the want of the proper amma- r
lition rendered them of little service. An old- j
ashioned flintlock muzzle-loading muskot was ,
ho favorite arm, as it could always do service ^
vhether there were patent cartridges, porous- ^
lions capB, ?c., in camp or not. Whoever had *
?ne of these prized it above all the patent arms
0 be had.
There was but little organization among the
brees of the revolution, although General
Juesada was recognized as the chief in com
uand. Every leader had raised and kopt to?
gether what men he could, and the camp seem
!d more like a gathering of privato bauds than
1 regular force. General Quosada was labor
ng to introduce regimental and brigade organ- .
zations. It was this reason, the absence of
.?.gular organization and military rule, which
ireventod General Qucaada from attacking
Puerto Principe, which he could undoubtedly
lapture if he could control his force so as to
)riog them to act on a general plan.

ho insurgents in these encounters is to get
told of tho musket or knapsack of every ono
hey can wouud or kill. In this they will run
xtraordinary risks, three or (bar running out

WHAT THE PLANTERS HAVE TO SAT
ON THE RICE TIERCE Q VESTION.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
I have jost seen the card of Messrs. T. Tup?
per & Sons, and others, purchasers of rice,
addressed to the rice factors of Charleston, in
which they have agreed or combined to discon?
tinue, after tho first of May, the usual charge
for the tierces in which the rice is held for
market. Your comment upon this suggestion
is an approval or endorsement, as calculated to
remove "another clog from the wheels of the
commerce of the State." From the high char?
acter cf the gentlemen signing this agree?
ment, I take it for granted they are not only
earnest but honest in their convictions, and
that they sincerely desire the prosperity of the
planters of the State, as well aa the merchants
of the City of Charleston. Their suggestion
is, however, a grave innovation upon a conven?
tional usago mach more aged and time-hon?
ored than either of tho gentlemen who con?
jointly undertake to advise tho factors as to
the interest - of their customers.
The planter will be the first to feel the effect
of thia innovation or repudiation of an old and
well established custom, and the demonstra?
tion is by no means clear that he will receive
the proposed additional compensation for hts
grain in lieu of the price of the tierce. Expe?
rience will settle this point, but then it will bo
too late for the planter to demur. It will not
bi considered impertinent, therefore, on behalf
01 thc planters, if they should assume to in?
struct their factors on this and other points
affecting themselves directly if not vitally,
rather than submit to the dictatio . of a third
party. Disclaiming any disposition to cavil
or criticise unfairly tho opinions of those who
justly claim to be "alive to the interests of the
city, ' wo simply ask, now that that the time has
arrived "for the removal of clogs," that all the
points of difference between buyer and seller be
fully and fairly ventilated, and that tho interest
of the planter receive that consideration to
which he is justly entitled. Testimony is scarce?
ly necessary to vorify the losses to which tho rico
filanter is subject- Furt, in the way of samp
ing. Tho seller takes his pounds, quarts, or
more, to his office for inspection. Second, the
buyers or proposed purchasers each do ditto.
Then comes the cooper, almost invariably pro?
vided with bag or bucket; he takes enough to
make an easy fit of the heading, which has to
be replaced after sampling. How much, no
one seems to seo or care lo see, for I myself
have witnessed tho stealing (with buyer and
Belier within ton feet) of at least eight to ten
pounds, and upon bringing the matter to his
notice the factor quietly informed me that it
could not be prevented, and that really in tbe
aggregate it was too small to mike a fuss
about; that custom sanctioned it, and no one
individually could oppose it without odium.
It might justly be considered picayunisn to
collect all of the samples thus taken and stored
away for comparison, to be restored to their
owners. Yet m the aggregate they act cally do
support tbe tables of very many families.
But let us fellow up the programme. The
rice ts sold, and tho cooper is again brought
into requisition to overhaul and tighteu up the
tierces for reshipment. Whether it be f mnd
accessary or not, a charge is always mido for
each tierce in every lot ot rice put on tho mar?
ket. No allowance is made for those requiring
ao cooperage, and yet I have known at least
three-fourths o' a parcel to pass to the buyer 8
nrithout a nail being driven or a hoop adjusted,
ind the planter charged the full price for ordi?
nary cooperage. Is this right or wrong?
Should custom or usage justify it if wrong ?
Wo come now to tho most important charactor,
tho woigh-ma8tor. Ho is, we believe, a sworn
jfficer, and unimpeachable. He finds a tierce
neighing 750 pounds, and.openly registers it 716
-four pounds short. Each and every tierce re?
lives tho same deduction, and for this tret bo
s sustained by the law of usage. The merchant
;laims it os his rightful perquisite, and his
:laim is sanctioned by the Chamber of Com
sounds of clean rico out of every hundred
?crees, and gives it to the merchant, without
?thor consideration than thc graco of purchas
ng ; and tho factor, or planter's agent, is coolly
lomtod to the "liberal facilities of railroads
md steamboats for the extension of tho trade
if the city," as an inducement to acquiesce in
ho suggestion to abolish tho payment
or the tierces in which the rice 'is sold.
10 it BO. "Let us havo ncace." But I
011 you, gentlemen, if you begin with inno?
vions, sweep clean. I have intimated where
ou may strike for planter aa well as merchant
-for a large portion of tho Stole, as well as for
ho City of Charleston. Tho planter makes
lotbing on tho sale of his barrels, for they aro
?barged to tbe rico buyer at mill prices. Thc
nillcr alone makes a profit, and be might just
8 reasonably expect to bo paid by the increas?

THE RADICAL REBELLION.
What thc South Carolina Delegation
in Congress Think of the indignation
Doings at Columbia-Une of the "ins"
Kcads a Lecture to thc Disconsolate
The editor of the South Carolina Republican,
laving taken caro to provide himself in good
eason with a comfortable berth in the office
f the Secretary of the Senate at Washington,
? righteously wroth at the howl of rage
nd disappointment recently set up (somewhat
rematurely, as he says,) by the hungry crew
f his Republican brethren at the Stat*Capital.
ti qllG?? ?rom bis iast 'letter to his paper:
Our Congressional delegation were some
mat surprised at tho sudden and excited
ction at the meetings held in Columbia and
!harle8ton. The delegatiou was not aware
hat any appointments had been definitely
ettlod. The several members of tho delega
iou have doubtless made up their minds as to
ho persons whom they will individually sup
ort, and some of these persons will unques
ionably receive some of the positions. But
hat a full slate is made up is not true, even at
he date thal I write.
I he members of thc delegatiou naturally
bject to tho language of the call for these
iee tings, and tho tone of tho resolutions
doptcd. They say they would very gladly
tave received a rcspecttul expression of the
pinions and wishes of their constituents, and
Yould have given it due heed. They would be
dad, too, if, when (he goutlemcn gathered in
hose meetings had stated to whom they wire
ipposed, they had also recommended tho indi
'lduala to whom they wished tho appointments
;ivcn. Tho resolutions adopted simply de
louuco thc delegation and what they ?are sup
loscd to bj aboiir to do. They can bo guided
cry little by such expressions. They aro in
vecipt of scores of lotters, too, from individu?
els applying for office, denouncing every person
lupposed to bo a candidate for tho same office,
[bey can but feel contempt for those whe
trite them; such persons arc simuly trying to
cet favor for themselves by wholesale abuso of
)there, and the attempt proves thom to be both
nean and foolish. No man will gain anything
>f a sound Republican by slandering others.
Some have already impaii cd thoir chances for
tppuintment by writing letters full of scurril
nis attacks on other candidates.
Thus tho Congressional delegation of South
'arolina think and say. They say that they
lo not expect to please all. They will try tb
satisfy thc majority and to make good appoint?
ments. We sun1' see iu duo time what they
lo, expressing earnestly our hope and expeeta
.lou that they will give" no place to any but
.inceic, trusty and thorough Republicans.:.^=tj

??THE TRYING SEASON.-THE
Marchi og winda, tho cold, drizzling raing, the heavy
fogs, and occasional warm and moist days of A) arch,
render it, upon the whole, the moat unhealthy month
of tbe year. Its depressing influences are especially
unfavorable to invalide, and thousands of persons
with feeble constitutions, who have borne tbe win?
ter bravely, break down in the lirst month of spring.
Thc variations of temperature aud cold east winds
are a serious trial to the dyspeptic and bilious,
whose symptoms they invariably aggravate. Inter?
mittent fever is also rife wherever there ie evclvable
poison in the water or thc soil. To enable the sys?
tem to combat these evils, there is nothing like a
cood vegetable tonic, and among ibis class of me di?
ttoes UOsTETTbR'3 STOMACH BITTERS stand
supreme. Medical men prescribe it iu preference to
any of the tonic preparaUons of the pharmacopoeia.
They arc aware that the ordinary tinctures and ex?
tracts are all b.scd upon cheap alcohol, which is sur?
charged with an acrid essential oi', and absolutely
poisonous. 3 hey know, on thc other band, that the
reclined essence of the finest rye grown in this
country is thc solo spirituous ingredient of HOS
TETTER'S" BITTERS, and that lUc vegetable me?
dicinal elements of which lt is composed aie of rare
cilica.-y. Hence, lt has the confidence ot physicians
aud rinds its way into hospitals where no other pro?
prietary medicine is sanctioned.
A course of the BITTERS is especially recom?
mended to persons of delicate habits, of both sexes,
at ibis season. In the fever and ague districts of tho
West and south, quinine has been almost univer?
sally discarded as a chologogue, and this invaluable
antidote to malarious disorders ad spiel in its stead.
A doublo gain is realized by the change; for thc
Bitters, unlike that dangerous alkaloid, arc agreeable
to the palate, and their curative effect is much more
permanent, n*c 0 March 2?
