-?. ijlllMU il HUMUM-III !? II ll
Tu*sd*y Morning, July 4 18C5.
Thc great dev of the American Revol?
t i< n is to be celebrated with great eclat
by the colored population of Columbia"
and its precincts, and there will probably
be visitors from a distance of thirty miles [
and more. . It is ftstiraated that not less |
than 30,000 persona will be present, j
Preparations for a grand dinner have been j
ija progress for some weeks, and a fearful !
consumption of creature comforts may be
anl'cipated. The editor of the Phoenix
and the compositors have all beeu honored
with an invitation to tho feast. The |
editor, huHvever, has invariably got sick ?
on that day lor the last twenty years, and j
he has no reason io expect that he will |
escape on the present occasion, ile thus
escapes orations us Well BS celebrations.
We are told that the military authorities,
under Col. Haugi ion, have made their
preparations complete for '.lie preservation
of public order. StroDg guards will en?
force sobriety and decency, and reqeh-e
patriotic enthusiasm to wear a curb, keep- j
iag it harnessed to proper paces, and not I
suffering it to break bounds and gallop off
in license. As preliniinary to this d?sira- j
bleycondition, tho commandant has re?
cently* ^een quite rigid in exacting obe j
dience to those orders which forbade thc !
sale of whiikey. He has, wc arc told,
taken up several establishments whose !
owneru were guilty of violating orders. :
Some famous ?roliexiag has been arrested '
in the vt y highest toss of its piumage; J
and, tripping ou the light fantastic toe, j
Under the two-fold inspiration of violins
.and whiskeys, the merry elves of Terpsi- j
chore have had their pastimes arrested,
and. been made to trip away from bail j
room to guard house, while thc whiskey
has been made to How into the gutters,
instead of the glottis. Some obstinate of?
fenders, we also learn, have been put to
hard lab^r, being thus made to suffer
equally in spirit and in flesh. So mote it
be. We presume that the garrison here
will deliver a salute at dawn and at noon?
day; and to those persons who dwell near
the cannon, we counsel thc throwing open i
of their windows, lest they lose some ot
their ^lasshy the concussion-a loss not
casi,y replaced. We hear of no orations
to he delivered, tho?:gh it is possible there
may be extemporaneous speaking through?
out inc day and at varions places. Wo
hear, however, of no other celebrations
proper, save those of the colored pcpula
Pr.acKEUiNns AT A n r> c v iLLK.-~We have
received a report of the proceedings of a
public meeting at Abbeville, with the
view to reconstruction of the Union. The
meeting was large and highly fte j leclable.
Judgv Wardlaw \ resided, and the cum
t?'ntcc appointed consisted mostly of the
ablest men in the precinct. Hon. A. Burt,
formerly a member of the United States
Congress, was chose to bear the mumor^jl
to Washington. We shall ci ve an early
insertion to the proceedings, whichreach
us toe lalo foPa piaee in this day's paptjj^
A correspondent of the Savannah He
reid, writiug from Washington, says of
the Charleston delegation lately sent thi?
ther, "they aro evideutiy not in good
older." Wo presume T?iat the writer
meant, "not in good odour;'1 and we should
thir.k not. Verily, you shall purgo these
politicians with all the physic in Cohen's
chop-you m?y drench them with poppy
aua Mandargora.-yet not remove one par?
ticle of that ancient rebel taint upon
which most of them prided themselves but
a littic 3'car ago.
NATIONAL BANU-The books for sub
?erip ti on to the "People's National Bank
of South Carolina"' were announced for
opening yesterday, the Od inst., at thc
banking house of thc People's Bank, in
Charleston-T>. L. McKay, W. H. Houston
and J. S. Riggs being tlie commissioners.
Tho advertisement does not eay for how
long a period the books aro to be kept
open.' ' _
The Charleston Library building, corner
of Broad and Church streets, has been
engaged by Collector Mackay ns a tempo
, rai y enstom house. It will be seen by our
cvtracts that the collector lias been stirring
tiie political waters at Washington, to the
inconvenience of thermal! political fishes,
and tint he hat returned to Charleston to
receive an ovation from thc leading pcr
u?nn and roJtticiBi.'i of thet ancient ilk
Opening o? Railroad Travel.
It is matter of, grateful puolic interest
to know that the Wilmington an ? Man?
chester Railroad will be open for freight
and tv-avel. through to Wilmington, by or
about the middle; of August. Daily con
neclions with the North are now made
The Cheraw and Darlington Railroad is
running through from Florence to Ghera
and the Northeastern Railroad Company
will be prepared to transport passengers
and frc'ght. the entire length of that road
-that is, from Florence to Charleston-on
4th July inst.
The public convenience calls loudly for
the establishment of mail communioatioh,
and it is therefore, highly desirable that
mails should be put upon the roads at
once. We trust that the military authori
tios will. do their utmost to attain this
resnlt. Mails can reach this road from
Charleston by iay of the North eastern
Railroad, and the Wilmington and Man?
chester Railroad Company is prepared lo |
carry tiie mails from Kingsville to Little t
Pee Dee River, a distance of ninety seven !
miks, just as soon as they may he enlled j
upon to do so.
Greonville and Columbia Railroad.
On and after July 1, the trains will run |
as follows: Leave Alston on every Mon !
day, Wednesday and Friday, at 5 o'clock j
ti. m.; ?caving Greenville on Tuesdays, I
Thursdays and Saturdays, and arriving at !
Alston same days. Tile traveller will note !
these regulations. A private letter to the
Phoenix, from Mr. J. B. Lasalle, .the e.\
eel lent superintendent, advises us of the j
commendable progress which is being ?
made in the reconstruction of the wo?k. j
We trust that the day of disaster lias j
fully pa3?ed-that lhere will be neither '
freshets nor foes to tear up and destroy j
d- ring the next three generations. We !,
civs an extract from thc encouraging letter !
of Mr. Lasalle: #
. "We are making r.-pid progress with
thc "completion 'towards Columbia. We
have a corps of engineersoa th?; line being i
located or completed as experimented.
The location is far advanced, and we
expect in a very shot t time to pu!. c. build?
ing force upon it, though a portion <>i ilia !
work will be somewhat troublesome We
expect in the course of a few months to |
have the sound of the whistle telling of j
our speedy approach. Dur motive j.ewer j
nnd rolling stock has been very much re I
doced, which compels ns to run only tie- 1
three trains per week."
Efforts are in. progress ia Savacnah to j
resume tlie lighting of that eily with ?-as. ,
; The District I'-ovost MarshaUins prohibit- !
. ed tho wearing of any portion of the Cen- j
i federate uniform.

Thc property, real and personal, includ?
ing slaves, held in South Carolina, accord- j

a vestige is left. The four hundred thou

Herald- hus the following Summary at the j
i ci?se of an editorial upon the labor quos- '
tun at the South:
I 'The labor question, which is also in- <
I eluded in reconstruction, admits of a very ;
i simple solution. Those Southerners, white I
1 or black, who will no: work, must starve,
i I his is tiic invariable ru] . throughout thc I
; United States, and we s?*e no reason to

We thank General Lovell for a copy of

A IbsrsTERESTi.? J ri .<;:.:-We are credi?
bly informed that Judge Underwood, who
was in thia* city a few days ago, makin?
arrangements to bold n term ol the Unite J
States Court for the Kastern District of
Virginia, is at present occupying the
dwelling house ft Mr. Wm. M. McVeigh,
i'n Alexandria, and claiming lo bc the
lawful owner thereof in fee simple, by^
virtue, of a decree of confiscation and sale
entered in his own court. The house,
worth fully is?0.''00, was fold bi the mar?
shal of Judge Underwood's court for the
.sum of $f,50i>, and J ?rpg? Underwood
himself became I he piuchaser. Mr. Mc?
Veigh's sou w.-.s livingin the hour?: at the
i tim?: of the conliseatton am! sa i above
referred to. Mr. McVeigh is over fifty
? \ears of age. and never held office of any
! sort under the Confederate Government.
\ ile Wae indicted. W?i see. inst We?k, before
j the grand jury of Norfolk, for treason.
I The Constitu? ion of the United Stated and
the laws o; every civilized lund requires
that a mail stiail be convicted of treason
?before h s propi rty bc ?;orifiscated, bul
j Judge Underwood has. in ibis case, for
I reasons that can easily be seen through,
j reversed th? re gu ?ur s-qiicnce of legal pro
I Ceedings. lt ni- - declares ihat no attainder
for treust n shall . work a forfeiture ol
land, beyond thc life of the person attaint
cd. We uro not surprised, though, at Ins
mistake in this particular, aa we hear be
never had a license to practice law before
be was placed ou the bench. This is the
mun who conies among us to occupy the
I eal that Judge Marshall once occupied.
