-Tho intelligence lately published to the,

dicted. His friend, Dr. Murchison, now infers
that ba has travelled west from from the

Wednesday by the British minister from the
. "Bngrifih consul at Havana giving an account
', ot another Spanish ???lrage OD the high seas,
? ' Accord in g to this dispatch, a Spanish var ves?
sel hailed an'Englfsh brig at sea, and the lat?
ter refusing .to stop, was fired into by the
Spaniard and sunk. This is tho substance of
the dispatch, which Mr. Thornton immediately
sent to his government over the cable. As tho
? dispatch ia extremely meagre, not stating
whether tho information respecting tho out?
rage was received originally from the Spauish
man-of-war or from some survivors of the
sunken brig, the authorities hore scarcely
know whether to credit it or not.
-The party consisting ot ex-Governor Ward,
of New Jersey, Colonel Forney, General Van
Wyck, of New York, and others, who started
on a Southern trip two weeks ago, have re
taroed to Washington. They went as far as
Florida, stopping at the principal cities and
towna on the way. They all concur in the re?
port that the industrial prospects have im?
proved. They say the negroes are working
better this year than last, and the whites gen
?rally seem to be more industrious, and the
crops look wen. The people are anxious for
Northern immigration, and millions of acres
of good lands are offered to capitalists. The
party were everywhere well received, and rail?
road companies provided special oars on the
.trains for their accommodation free of charge
-Of the crop prospects in Georgia, the Au?
gusta Chronicle says: "Wa regret to learn
that the cold weather of the past week has
very materially injured the crop prospects in
-thia portion of the State. Tie cold easterly
--winds which have prevailed for several days,
and the slight frosts of Friday and yesterday
morning, have caused the cotton to die out,
and on the light sandy lands great fears are
felt that the stand will be destroyed. Corn is
small and does not look healthy, the cold
having given it a yellow, stunted appearance.
The ?tanda of this crop are generally good, and
with a fair season wo maj- expect a good jieltl.
Wheat and oats have, until within a few days,
looked remarkably well. The cold has effected
these crops, and if tho present cold sm p con?
tinues mauy days wheat will be seriously in?
-The death of Prince Alexander Sergoyvitch
Mentscb ikoff, of Russia, is announced by a tele?
gram. Thia distiriguiahed piinco and soldier
waa horn in 1789, entered the imperial service
in 1805, accompanied Alexander ? as aide-de
camp during the campaigns of 1812-14, W&B
subsequently promoted to the rank of General,
but resigned in 1823, when the Czar d?fini ti v3
ly abandoned the cause of tho struggling
Greeks. Under Nicholas he served as ambas?
sador to Persia, and afterwards took part in
the war against that country, captured Aoapa,
but was seriously wounded at Varna, and sub?
sequently devoted himself to the development
of the Russian navy. lu 1853 he was sent to
. Constantinople to urge the claims of Nicholas
m the affairs of Turkey, but only succeeded in
promoting a speedy rupture, the result of
which was the Crimean war. He commanded
both the land and navil forces in the Crimea,
lost the battles of Alma and Inkermann, but
.distinguished himself by bia energy in the do
fence of Sebastopol, He was superseded in
March, 1855, by Gertacbakoff, and waa ap?
pointed by Alexander II .commander of (.'ron?
stadt. At the time of bia death he was Admi?
ral of the Basaian navy.
MONDAI MORNING, MAT 10, 186?.
North? rn Men iii tlie South.
Mr. John W. Forney came, saw, and wrote
a letter tc his two papers-the Washington
Chronicle and Philadelphia Press-in which
he related his experience of Charleston and
South Carolina. With his face glued to a
windor.-, he passed through as much of the
State as is traversed by the Wilmington and
-Manohpstor and Northeastern Railroad?,
and waa able, of course, to familiarize him?
self with the composition of the soil, the
peculiarities of the climate, and the inside
and outside nature of the people. Twenty
four hours enabled him to do what his com?
patriots failed to accomplish in thrice
twenty-four years, and, in his own opinion,
Forney is now a marvellous proper person
to applaud or abuse the South. With
one hand he pats approval of the fer?
tility of the land and the quiet whioh every?
where prevails. With the other he waves ao
proval of political pickpockets and condem?
nation of the old slaveholding aristocracy.
Bitter and sweet, truth and falsehood, are
curiously combined in his Charleston letter,
But throughout the whole there is one
strain of which he never tires-a lugubri?
ous lament that "the old residents have no
"social intercourse with the Yankees."
It would be easy enough to give reasons
why there might be an invincible prejudice
against strangers, and particularly against
strangers like Mr. Forney. There would
be no difficulty in showing that a foul?
mouthed Radical, who curses and reviles
the South until the hope of profitable land
speculation bids him cease, can never
enter within the portals of an honest South?
ern home. But this does not touch the
root of the question, whioh is that the whole
subject of social and personal intercourse
must b% regulate! by each man for himself,
and not by his neighbors or the epistolary
Forney. Mr. A, B or C has no right to be
the personal friend of any man or set of
men merely because he was born in this
place, or was not born in that. The new
comer may be active and enterprising, up?
right in all his dealings, an excellent per?
son to know on the wharf or in the count
ing-room, and yet not one with whom his
business acquaintances would desire to have
their wives and children familiar. It is of
little consequence whether his birth-plaoe
ia in Louisiana or Massachusetts. The
man must prove himself or be proved hy
others, and even then it will depend upon
individual tastes whether he will be admit?
ted to that social intercourse -which Mr.
Forney craves. There are very few North?
erners, it is true, who beoome our familiar
friends. Thia is because of the general
worthlessness of the Bohemians who seek
to overrun the Stale. The New York Times
speaks of "the adventurers who have gone
?into the .South," and Harper's Weekly
saya: "Oae wonders that the South does
"not rebel anew when he considers the
"miserable vermin who have been sent down
"there as government officials;" a td the
Chicago Tribune, another Radica' sl<eet,
denounoes "the carpet-baggers-the sirol?
"ing, pilfering political blackleg* of the
"North," by whom the South is "ridden
?and robbed." And it is these "adventu?
rers," these "vermin," and these "black. -
"legs," whom Mr. Forney would have us
clasp to our breasts as fit companions for
sister, wife and children. No thank you !
As we said, this is a matter whioh every
man must regulate for himself. Each on?
should and will choose his own companions
and select his own friends. There is
free trade in friendship, at least, and, the
principle here shall be to think of a man as
we find him.
And we havo no fear that the bugbear of
"social exclusiveness" will have any effect
in preventing the influx of Northern capi?
tal. If a Northern man, or any other man,
comes to South Carolina, it ia because he
sees a chance of making money. Not one
will come for the sake of going into "so?
ciety." It is a plain calculation, a simple
question of dollars and cents-as it ought
to be. The sweetness of tbe Southern fire?
side will not console the stranger for fail?
ing trade and consequent loss of capital.
Nor will the absence of this private inti?
macy rob fortune of its obarms. The
merchant, or the broker or the professional
man who immigrates to this State, does
so because he believes that he will make
more progress here than he could do
at home; and he will not, if he has any
senBe, be deterred from ooming by any
dread of being barred out from some par?
ticular class of "sooiety." AB time rolls on
the new arrival is understood and appreci?
ated acoording to his worth, and, if he is
not, the loss will be to others rather than
to himself. When he has become, in fad
as well as in name, a part of the State, in?
terested in its progress and oonoerned in
ita good government, he,. will have friends
and acquaintances enough, and will have
made for himself a "society" whioh will be
all that he needs and all that he desiree.
Hold out the inducements. Show thc cheap?
ness of land and labor. Prove the scarcity
of money and the gain to bc made by its use.
These will bring Northern? s and Europe?
ans to the shares jt South Carolina-not
travellers with carpet-bags, but settlers
with trunks, who will be of us and with us,
and will have no cause to complain of their
reception, notwithstanding the ominous pre?
dictions of thc disappointed Forney.
Thc State Militia.
It will be seen by a circular published in
another column, that Adjutant-General Mo?
ses declares that " no orders have yet been
issued looking to the organization of the
State militia, or the arming and drilling of |
the same." There have, undoubtedly, been
movements looking to an immediate organi?
zation of an armed forced of some kind in
different localities ; but we accept the
statement of the Adjutant-General that
this was done without authority, and call
the attention of all persons to that portion
of the militia law which deolares "that
"there shall be no military organizations or
"formations for the purpose of arming,
"drilling, exercising the manual of arms or
"military manouvres not authorized under
We also again express the hope that the
active organization of the militia will be
postponed for many months to come. It is
not necessary for any public purpose, and
can do no good, whilo it mast cause grave
alarm and may lead to serious riot and dis?
THE Clarendon pr<ms complains that tbe
Charleston papers published on Saturdays
never reach that place. The fault is not with
us, as THE NEWS is mailed with the regularity
of clock-work. We hope that Postmaster
Trott will give an eye to this matter.
