Wednesday Morning, Jane'23, 1855.
Rarity of Friendship.
Friendship, with half the work!, means
Jittle more than the utter subordination of
e:>e of thc parties to all thc humors aj^d
.caprices of the othef. In or her words, to
he your friend, we must be your patron .
There is little real friendship in the world,
lt is a rarer quality than love-is to? pas?
sionless a virtue for most people. Re-"
garder! as the thing it is, we hold th?
maxim of Polouius to be worth its weight
'.To thy own self be true,
And it must follow as the night the day.
Thou canst not then brf false to any man."
BOOKS.-Thc only two classes of books
which are really useful beyond all others
ure those which are written for the head,
and those which are written /rom t the
heart. Yet, to write either well, requires
a just, knowledge of both head and heart
-requires, indeed, that while each shall.'
be recognized as absorbing always its own !
province, they shall both be considered ?
under a common sway. \
Hen. W. W. Boyeo.
Editor of thc 'J'hccnix-Stu: lt. is the j
-opinion of many that the Hon. Mr. Boyce j
is more likely than nnj^ other citizen of j
Soutii Carolina to receive the appointment j
of the President of the United States as I
Provisional Governor of the State. It is, j
? we believe^ the desire of the greater por- j
tion of our citizens that he should receive j
the appointment. He it, in brief, their |
preference. He is ours. We regard him .
as one of our most sensible, considerate
and prudent statesmen, moderate, in opi i
nion and politic ia action, lt is wei! j
known that, while asserting all the rights j
?of thu State-while, in fact, a State rights
man-he yet weighed the question of i
policy, in the late secession movement, in I
connection with that of abstract right,and j
decided against our notion on the first |
election of Lincoln. It is now to he re- j
givtted that ids prudence did not prevail,
even a>_ainst and over tue instincts of au ?
eager patriotism. But all that is over
now, and regrets .-.rs i 41 e. It is enough j
to know that Slr.'Boyce possess?s all the
requisite qualities ot statesmanship, and is j
adequate to meet the demands which the \
business before us is likely to make upon
the wisdom of ? provisional Governor of
the State. Whether he shall receive this
appointment or not, we are yet for putting ;
forward the name of Mr. Boyce as that Of
the person who should fitly receive the
honor? of the Executive, whet ever we
shall again enjoy Wie privilege of voting j
for a Governor. We betr. to nominate him |
accordingly, and .trust that all friends of
good order aud a wise discipline, all who
seek to begin a march of steady ?internal
improvement, regulated by good sense and
good conduct, and enlarged and whole?
some views of State polity, will keep his
name before the country as that of the |
favorite nominee for this high position, j
We must not. now sulfur ourselves to he !
deprived ot the.ability and worth of such !
a citizen, and it will be our .imperative I
duty to seek out such citizens for al! tffc j
?otliees of the country. Our. people owe it
to themselves to he especially heedful in
the future how they throw away their '
votei on the unworthy. They peril their I
liberties and prosperities in every ease S
where they Li ust po.?er to the hands of
the undeserving and incompetent. We I
repeat, Mr. Editor, that all friends of
order and of the future good and liappi- ?
ness of tlie State will keep the name of!
Mr. Boyce before the people as that of our \
uext Executive. ' B. ti. A.

An Interview with Lee.
A correspoudeot of <he Columbus Jour?
nal, who styles himself "A Northern
ClergymanlaUly paid a visit to Gen.
Lee. We quote his account of the inter?
In wy peregrinations throuuhout the
city of Richmond, I took the liberty, in
company with Surgeon McCracken, a com?
mon friend, of walking to the Lee man?
sion, unrecommended, and in pl in repub?
lican style, rang the entrance bell. Quickly
there appeared at the door a good-looking
mulatto, who pol?t dy waited my com?
mand. This colored servant was very
courteous and kind. His manner wa--easy
and unassuming, indicating familiarity
with the duties of hhs oilice, and a readi?
ness to accommodate. Sambo seemed lo
have a kimi heart, but wji? very particu?
lar as to who we were, and what our busi?
ness was with his master, for whom he
seemed le entertain a. profound attach?
"Can I seo Gen.'Lee?" was the simple
question I put on this occasiou to the ser?
vant. '"This is not the regular day when
he receives company, and he has not yet
received any visitors," he replied; "but,
but," and be surveyed me with a hes i tat- ?
ing look, not knowing what to say next,
when 1 observed, "Perhaps Mr. Lee win
see a Northern clergyman in his private
pai 1er a little while." "Your name, sh?"
lie asked. "Mr. --, of-," 1 replied
Ile bid nie walk into the vestibule, and
soon disappeared, then quickly returned, j
and ushered me ?pto a parlor. I took my
seat on one of tile richly cushioned crim?
son sofas constituting a part of the furni?
ture ?d' the room, and awaited the entree
of the great rebel chief. The room had
nothing to ornament it but ono table, on
which was .a pitcher .of water-another of
Spartan simplicity-and withal some very i
ordinary chairs. My musings were soon i
interrupted by the entrance of the Gene- j
ral, who, with an easy srnilemnd a grace- i
ful simplicity of manner, bid nie welcome |
as a member of Sherman's army. Gen. !
I*ee looks o der than his portraits gene- ?
rally make him. Lie ia nearly fifty seven j
years old. His hair is gray; his. head
large; his brow grandly arched, and his j
eyes and nese of a generous greatuess- !
finer than he is represented in the por- j
traits. The "mouth is large, tho lips syuie- j
what fallen; and it is here about thc mouth !
that a faint feeling of vanity is visible. I
Gen. Lee's manners are those of a man
accustomed to homage, which has been I
rendered to him by the Southern people I
and soldiers for the lust four years. In his j
conversation with me, the General was ?
extremely affable .m l talkative, but he ;
undoubtedly has the faculty of being very j
reserved. 1 agree with the English Colo?
nel who pronounces (Jen. Lee the l^and
bumest man he ever saw. lie is tall, |
broad-shouldered, well set u.\>, looks every j
inch a soldier. He basa most captivating j
pcrsonalle, a fair and open face, dark, i
liquid eyes, glowing when aroused like j
polished diamonds. His physiognomy is j
of the Corsair character, and he is peen
liarly free and d?gage in all his attributes, j
Ile manifests no signs ol vanity or per I
sonal bravado. The1*? is not a glance that I
would be tra v the willing ambition that |
would saw "I am the man who command j
ed the annies of tbeSotiih in their mission j
of destroying the "air.-st. i rame-work of ;
Government that ever r?s.i to animate theJ
hopes of mankind.'" Throughout alli
parts of thc South, he is regarded as the t
moist consummate General ol' the world;
hence, when he capitulated, they gave up j
the cause ?is hopeless-. . j
1 conversed with the rebel leader on a
variety of subjects, upon all ot which he
expressed opinions. He was very em?
phatic in Iiis utterances, and seemed to (
have weighed everything with studied i
care. The .murder of the President met I
with his hearty detestation, and ht regards
that terrible deed as a calamity without a ]
name. To my question, Lo you think the ]
rebellion is ended? he answered, very im j
pressively, "Yes, sir; and had it not buen !
for the politicians, it would bave b en j
settled long ago." The politicians to whom |
he referred were undoubtedly Davis, i
Breckinridge, Toomhs and others of that !
sort, ile believed thai bitterness and re
venge would soon die out from both sec
tions, and that tho soldiers of the two j
armies would become again united in the !
bonds of friendship and harmony.
The Charleston Courier congratulates ;
the city that it has now a Collector of the |
Custoina and a Collector of Revenues, j
which it assumes to bo encouraging as to i
the future prospect. How a collector, or ?
a part of collectors, should be as encou?
ru gin g as a diffuser and distributor would
be, is very doubtful; but-nous verrons.
We are told Cbat#the North-eastern '
Railroad is using every energy to finish
the connexion with Florence, and the '
question is asked, "What is doing with thc i
link which binds Wilmington with Charles !
Tho New York Tribune give* sundry
re.?'ons for spuring the life of JetVersou
Davis. The Herald, ou the contrary, would
seem disposed to have him suffer; and yot>
the game which that paper plays, in en?
deavoring' to make Davis ridiculous, is,
perhaps, a cunning process hy which to
save him. We cannot well Iii ag the eue

The European press universally de?
nounce the idea as monstrous of executing
Davis or ?ny of the Confederate leaders
for treason. The Bi ?tish press points to
their Government's method of treating the
Irish rebel chiefs. They also repudiate
the notion that Davis or hi* Government
had auy connection with, or knowledge ol*
the conspiracy to murder Lincoln.
