?DOW, J urne a-In reply to a Conservative
deputation to-day, Lord Derby said be spoke
aa a ania in the House of Lords, notwit hstand
ig the influence or action of others. While
many ft ianda of the Irish Church wish to
amend, not to reject)the bill for its distetat
lisbment, he waa persuaded its rejection was
the only course. He desired that it would be
rejected by a large majority, as such course
was the safest in such a revolutionary step.
He felt satisfied ihia would receive the assent
of trio Conservatives, who would continue to
increase their support if coerci?n of the trees
A meeting of the Conservatives was held in
Loudon to-night. Besolutious ware adopted
condemning the Irish Church bill.
It-la understood that Mr. Gladstone proposes,
in case the House of Lords should reject the
bill, to prorogue the present session of Parlia?
ment immediately, and inaugurate a new
gobern?, in order to ensure the passage of the
bill. R is proposed to create a new batch of
Peers, including the Marquis of Huntingdon,
Lord Amberly, the eldest sous of mos? of the
^ Liberal Peers, and all the Scotch and Irish

f the position of the House of Lords will have
on Ir aland, particularly in regard to the land
question. To rule, in deriding what the sense
of the nation shall or shall not decide upon, is
beyond the competence of Lords or any other
The annoniiced predetermination of the ma-|
jori ty of the House of Lords to reject the Irish
Ch arch bill has ca used intense excitement, and
threatens to precipitate an eventually inevita?
ble conflict between the Lords and toe Com?
mons. It is rumored in so mo quarters that
the annoanceinent was only madero feel the
public pulse, and to ascertain, how far the
House of Lords dar?, go.
The Ti-nee to-day refers to the ?aot that
some of the Tory Peers declined to follow the
'j policy in regard to the Irish Church bill deter
4 mined upon by the majority at their mee tir g
Ilast Saturday, sod trusts that the danger of a
collision ia past. Experience of the last two
days ranima the truth that io the direct issue
th? Lords must allow the national will to pre?
vail. The pteaant aspect indicates the pas?
sage of the bill to its second reading by ?
small majority. Ihe.aame paper, in an article
on the French eleoticrns, points to the fact that
three and a half millions of Frenchmen arr

A TALK WITH REVERDY JOHNSON.
His Views on the Rejection o? the Ala?
bama Treaty-lu fleet ot* Air? Sumner's
?.peech on the KngUsh Ministry and
A correspondent of the New York Times
gives an account of a professed interview with
the Bon.Beverdy Johnson, late United States
Minister to England, at bis country residence,
near Baltimore, a few days 8 go. A portion of
the conversation between Mr, Johnson and the
correspondent is thus related by the latter :
"How is Mr. Sumner?" then said Mr. John?
son. * * . * * "Mr. Sumner ie in Wash?
ington," I replied, "and reels extremely -well
battened with his speech." :.
"Well," replied Mr. Johnson, "Ido not know
that any one else is satisfied witb it. I tell
you thar that speech of funnier has made
England a unit against the 0 ni ted States. Our
friends there have fallen off by ?roo pe. At
first the people declared for war, but now I
think they have got over Abat idea-aod w?
satisfied that our intentions are pacific. The
speech Saving been approved by the Senate,
the Ea gl i sh people at Bret thought it was a
declaration of war, and were prepared to accept
it in that spirit; but they have since changed
their minds, and now they have justly arrived
at the conclusion that Sumner is, after all. bat
one American citizen, and does not represent
the views of the administration." '
For a few minutes Mr. Johnson here re?
lapsed into silence, and then broke out again:
"Sumner's speech is absurd t Do you know
what they say of it in England ? Clarendon
says that it is absurd and preposterous;"fhat
it ie not the apeeoh of either a lawyer or a
statesman; that it j propositions are wholly in?
admissible." "Why," said Mr. Johnson, "this
same Mr. Sumner wrote to Mr. Bright on the
19th or 20th of last Ja nary that the protocol
which I sent here would bave been almost
unanimously approved if it bad been received
three weeks sooner. The fact ie, the incoming
President dla not want the question settled
during the administration of Andrew Johnson,
and the Republican party did not want it
settled by me. They did not want the eciai of
hiving the most difficult question, short of the
question of actual separation, that bas arisen
between the two'countries, settled by a Demo?
"Wby don't the English pipers publish Mr.
Sumner ls speech?"
"Wby, bcoause it is too nonsensical. Ciar- '
sudon says that the United States, as a gov?
ernment, have no claims against England as a
government. The United States have private
individual claims against England, and Eng?
land has private individual claim * against the
United States. These the English people and
government are willing to submit to an arbi?
tration. Clarendon s iy s that England might
as well say that she would reject tbe treaty be?
cause the holders of Irish republican bonds
might come in ander its terms. Tbe Ameri?
cans whom I have met abroad denounce Mr.
Sumner as much as the English people do. It
is a fooub speech."
Mr. Johnson was very indignant on this eub
ject. He could not tolerate tbe idea of attach?
ing any importance or signifie mee whatever to
the ideas of the Massachusetts sena or. He
started up from bis seat, and walking uo and
down the room, nervously and rapidly said:
" fhe English Government will never accede
to tbe Sumner demands. Clarendon won't
yield one ii.oh from his position. They have
taken it, and cannot be shaken in their resolve.
They are a very proud people, a po wei tul peo?
ple and cannot be frightened.''
"What do you think of a war between Eng?
land and the United States, Mr. Johnsoa? What
wonld be the result of it ?"
"The result would bo unfavorable to us. In
the first place, our debts are equal. But there
will not be and cannot be a war so long as there
is any common sense left to tbe two peoples.
But. to talk about it for argument's Bake: Eng?
land w is never better prepared for i war than
she is now, and the United States is less able
to enter on a contest of tbe kind than she was
during tbe rebellion. Do you remember Ad?
miral Porter's letter on the subject? He is ot
my opinion, or, rather, I am of bis, that we
cannot fight England. Yes, they wouU give us

Willing to be exchanged; but I do not think
they are, and sooner than part with that pro?

FURIHER PARTICULARS CONCERNING

THE NEWS bas been favored by its friends in
various sections of the State:
Our correspondent, ' XXX," kindly sends us
tbe following etatemest, under date of Ander?
son, June 8:
Our farmors are very much discouraged as
to the prospect of the growing crops. Wheat,
which is now being harvested, is generally
sr- all and thin, but well h led, and the product
of the county will probably be a fair average
one. The area planted in corn is much smaller
than usual, and it is exceedingly backward and
unpromising thus fur. On the other band a
mucb larger quantity ol land bas been given to
cotton than usual. A vast amount of commer?
cial fertilizers were used, arid the anticipated
product led tor a time to the enjoyment of
golden dreams by almost every one. Tbey
were of short duration, however, and bavo
been succeeded by a most unpleasant depres?
sion of spirits in contemplation of a signal
The month of Hay was the most unpropiti?
ous within tbe recollection of the oldest inhabi?
tants, and the consequence is that the stands
of cotton are not only exceedingly poor, but
tbe plant made scarcely any perceptible start
to grow until within the last too days, and is,
therefore, three or four weeks later than it
should be at this season. And besides the
: other drawbacks of the season a very gene?
ral Impression prevails that the immense quan?
tity of rain that has fallen'recently, has in a
great measure destroyed the value of the fer?
tilizers applied, wbiob, with the general indo?
lence, indifference and disorganization of tbe
labor of the conni rs, render the prospect all
together most disoonracing: ana unless the
fall should turn' out unusually favorable, the
cotton crop of (bis country, notwithstanding
the increased quantity of land planted, must
fall far short of the last. But fortunately our
people, it is believed, are less embarrassed
with debt than those of any other section of
the State, and if they can raise the means to
?iay the enormous taxes required to run the
tadical machine to which they are subjected,
they may hope to live m comparative comfort,
ano: Anally overcome the misfortunes visited
upon them for no other reason tban that they
"loved their country too well."
Our friend Rotide gives os the following
cheering account of the crops in Anderson,
ander date of June 8:
Yesterday was a sale day, and there were
fewer persons in attendance from tbe country
than tue "time whereof the memory of man
runneth not to the contrary." Everybody, old
and young, are diligently at work in the wheat,
cotton and corn field*.' Tbe prospects for an
average yield of wheat continues encouraging.
Harvest begins this week, and from every so -
tlou one hears the most gratifying accounts.
Not so large a breadth of land, perhaps, sown
last tall as the previous year, but there has
been no disaster of any consequence sp far,
and the lands are more thoroughly prepared,
sud better manured. The area originally plant?
ed in cotton was undoubtedly larger than last
season, bul the wet. backward spring caused
many farmers to plough up their cotton and
plant in corn. This doubtless will give a re?
sult pretty near equal to the last crop, eo far
isa thfi Dunbar nf *"raa is concerned. Already
some of the farmers begin to regret this
action, since cotton bas rome out to
a great extent during the last fortnight,
under the genial influence of sunshine and
showers. Tbe oom orup looks promising, and
with the blessings of a benign Providence, our
people need have no fear of scarcity in bread
The freedmen are industrious and well be?
haved, striving earnestly to secure an honest
living. Of course, there are exceptions to this
general rule, and kleptomania bods a votary
now and then. Tbe wbito people are energeti?
cally engaged in the cultivation of the soil.
With improved farming and a large investment
in fertilizers, the smiles <>f Heaven are only
necessary to make the farmers of this region
independent of "all tbe world and the rest of
mankind." Politics below par, and both races
seemingly indifferent as to whether Grant runs
the machine into imperialism or floats away in a
cloud of smoke from the inevitable cigar. The
minds of the people are engrossed m their own
private pursuits, and each is striving to exoel
nis neighbor in industry, perseverance and

The wheat crop of Fairaeld, now being har?
vested, is unusally good, but tho area sown
wis not so large BS ?or the previous crop.
Less corn and moro cotton has been planted
this year than last. Corn is looking well, as is
also cotton, which though backward in conse?
quence of the enid spring, has muob improved
during tbe last fortnight . Large quantities of
fertilizers have been used, and the yield of cot?
ton will probably be larger than lost year, un?
less the season should bo au unfavorable one.
Tho negroes are wonting better. There are
fewer idlers to be seen, and day laborers now
get one dollar instead of seventy-five cents,
which from time immemorial bas been the
price of a day's work of a negro man.
Tbe patriotic and enlightened of our people
anxiously desire an immigration of Northern
mon and foreigners, not simply as laborers,
but to render our proseot labor more effie?er.,
by competition; to protect our pig peus and
corn cribs; to support schools and churches; to
raise the price of our lands from S5 to $50 per
acre, and to take government out of tho bauds
of an inferior race and restore it to a raco
whicb alone bas ever shown itself capable of
Our correspondent, "A. M.," gives the fol?
lowing account of the crops, writing from
Georgetown on tho 9th instant:
In this district there is but little of either
corn or cotton planted; rico being tho staple,
the area under corn and cotton is about equal
to that of last year, though tbe growth is not
quito as good, owing to so much cool weather
in May and the want of sufficient ram.
Plant?is report very favorably of tho rice
crop this year; the stand iu general is all that
coul'' be desired, ind promising an abundant
harvest if not injured later in the season by
freshets. Tbe area under rico in this district
id equal fully to that of last year. Another im?
proved feature of the present year is the ap?
plication and steadiness which thu colored peo?
ple manifest at their work; tho mijorityot
them bavo found out that thoy need expect
nothing but what a risos from their labor, and
have sot to work steadily.
Oar correspondent, "W.," writes as follows
from tho Courthouse, under date of tho Otb
I have boon at some pains to oseortain tho

to inquire of them throughout thu district.

however, has produced a very visible and cheer?
ing chango. I'be an a planted is argo; great

ciscouraging. Negtocs are working, as nc
groes always work, jost as they are made-on
some places well, on oto era badly. They are
quiet and civil and vu y treatable.
Our Columbia corespondent, "Corsair," sends
the following report of the condition of agri.
culturar"affairs in Richland on the 8th instant :
1. Condition of the crops. I think the con?
dition is fair. The end of cold weather came
about three weaks ago, and the tair weather,
with some rains, has given good opportunity
for farm work. Cotton is recovering from ita
ailments that ca ne of the cold. Corn flour?
ishes. Wheat fine. Oats fine.
2. Prospects of a satisfactory yield. I think
the yield of cotton will be just less, but barely
less, than an average one. The use of fertiliz?
ers will nearly, if not quite, make up for the
stint and bad stand ot the cold spring. A
well informed friend writes to me: "Prospect
of yield is average. Tho stand is bad general?
ly, owing tb the cold spring, but siuce the
weather became warm the crops are grow i off |
finely, and, owing to the lavish use ot f?rtil z
ers, the yield will, if the seasons are favorable,
be equal to that of last year." Another friend
from the upper edge of tho county says in
p encrai that the prospect for a good yield i8
not good. Other farmers with whom I con?
versed impress me with the idea I gave above.
Corn promises an average yield. Wheat a
tine yield. Oils good.
When I use the word "average," as indicat?
ing the yield of cotton above, I mean to say
the yield to the acre will be the same as hst
year, and consequently that the aggregate
yield for the county will be something like
twenty-five per cent, more than in 1868.
3. Area in cotton compared with that of last
year. About one-fourth more than last year.
All concur in this.
4. Area in corn compared with that of last
year. About the same as last year. One friend
says it is one-fourth leas; but all the others
concur n roakiqg it the same as last year.
5. Whether the colored people are working
well. As well as they did last year. My best
informed correspondent says: "It takes about
three times the number of free negioes to
work a ciop as slaves. Some few work well,
but the mass are careless and lazy, and if not
closely watched do more harm than good to a
cotton crop, which requires good care nod at?
tention when growing." Another tells me that
the men work pretty well, but that the women
or "hoe bands" are not doing as well as last
year. This comes from the northern part of
the county. In the southern part of the county
there are a good many freedmen trying to
plant for themselves. This will diminish, in a
very alight degree, however, the productive?
ness of their labor; for all these experiments
may bo safely counted as failures.
Our correspondent, C. H. Af., kindly sends us
the following report from Sumter, under date
of June 9:
Cotton is somewhat backward. The recent
warm spell has ac ed wonderfully upon the
plant, and it bas almost entirely recovered
from the injury received by the April and May
The usual complaints of planters have
ceased of late, and the prosp?ct for a large
crop is gocd.
Corn was planted aliout as usual, but the
great effort has been to put in as much cotton
Freedmen working pretty well. We do not
hear any complaints.
Our people have used fertilizers more exten?
sively than ever, and they think they can
already eeo the benefit of applying them.
Our correspondent, "8. W," writiDg from
Kicgstroe, under date of June 8, gives tho fol?
lowing account ef the condition of the crops:
Tbe planting ' interests in Williamsburg
County are progressing as well aa can be rea?
sonably expected under the circumstances.
The season so far haa been very favorable, es?
pecially to cotton. Thc spring has been too
dry and cold/ It has-been difficult to get cot?
ton up,'and someThat*baa gotten up has died
from the cold nights and tho drought. The re?
cent rains, however, have been of great ser?
vice, and tbe prospect may now be considered
at least tolerably fair. Corn ' crops aro doing
very well, and although a little backward, they
will compare favorably with former years.
There is more of both cotton and corn planted
this year than bas been since the war. The
area of citton this year is proportionally
greater than last year. The freedmen aro
working about as usual as a general thing,
though in some instances I have beard of their
doing better than since their emancipation.
They are beginning to learn, though slowly,
that freedom does not mean idleness, and that
they must work or starve. On the whole,
with the present prospects, a fair season and a
continuance of labor as now applied, a good
and fair yield of both cotton and corn may be
The Kingstree Star bas the following grati?
fying statement :
We are pleased to learn from our planters
that the prospects for a better crop is now per?
ceptible. I he recent rain and warm weather
have bad the effect of bting:ng up the cotton
that was replanted, and of greatly improving
that which withstood the cold weather of tho
spring. The grain crops are looking remark?
ably well, and oi the whole, wo think the
chances for abountifui harvest are good.

DRIFTING TO AN EMPIRE.
Tne Tendency of the Times-A Remalli,
able Letter from tbe Hon. Alexander
The Hon. A. H. Stephens bas written a loaf?
and elaborate letter to. the National Intelli?
gencer, giving his views as to tbe prime canse
of the war between the North and the South,
and closing with some speculations as to our
political rutare. We copy the concluding para?
graphs of the letterr'SS
And now, Messrs Editois, do you ask 'V
bona ? Why so much written upon the dead
issues of the past, when questions of so much
magnitude of a practical character press upon
the public-mind ? If so, the reply is two fold.
First, to vindicate the trutb of history, which
is itself a high duty on the part of any 'one who
has it in his power to do it; and, in the second
place, to show the people of these States, in
this vindication, not only the true cause, the
real "causa causans" of the late war, but the
real cause of their present troubles. The
Federal machinery for the last ten years
has been abnormal in its action. It must be
brought ba:k to the Jeffersonian doctrines, and
made to conform in its workings with tho or?
ganic principles of its structure, before there
can possibly be a return ot the days of peac?,
harmony, prosperity and happiness which for?
merly marked our course. There is no other
hope for constitutional liberty on this conti?
nent. Judge Nicholas may ''dream dreams"
about another constitutional amendment, pro?
viding a new mode of electing the Pmsident,
but the remedy hes in no such device lis that.
It lies simply in bringing back tbe government
in its administration to original brat principles.
This is to be done not by secession, however
rightful and efficient a remedy that might be.
That is abandoned. Nor is it to be done by
torce or violence of any kind, except the force
of reason and the power of trutb. lt is to be
done, if at all, at the ballot-box. Free institu?
tions are moro generally lost than estab?
lished, or strengthened by a resort to phy?
sical (orce. They are eminently tbe achieve?
ment of virtue, patriotism 'and reason.
That our insulations, and even nominal
form of government is now in great danger,
the prudent, sagacious, and wise everywhere
virtually admit. An able editorial in your own
paper, not long since, put tbe pertinent and
grave question, "Whither are we drifting?"
To this question I take tho occasion for one to
give you a.direct and positive answer. We ara
drifting to consolidation and empire, and will
land there at no distant pe iod as certainly as
the sun will set this day, unless the people of
the several States awake to a proper appreci?
ation of the danger, and save themselves from
the impending catastrophe by arresting the
present tondoncy ol public affairs. This they
oan properly do only at the ballot-box All
friends of constitutional liberty, in every sec?
tion of the State, must unite in this orand
effort. They must seriously consider, and even
reconsider many questions to whlcb they hivo
given but slight attention beretofote. They
must acquaint themselves with tbe principles
of their government, and provide security for
ho future by studying and correcting the
erre rs ot the past.
This is tho only hope, as I have stated, for
the continuance of even our present nominal
form of government. Depend upon it, there is
no difference between consolidation and em?
pire 1 No difference between centralism and
imperialism I The end of either, as well as all
of tbe?e, is the overthrow of liberty sod tbe es?
tablishment of despotism. 1 give you tho
words of truth in great earnestness-words
which, however received or heeded now, will
be rendered eternally true by tbe developments
of the future.
Tours, most respectfully,
