James B. Campbell.
We take ibe following paragraphs, from
the Charleston correspondence of the New
York Herald. Speaking of parties return?
ing to Charleston, the writer proceeds:
.'Mr. Campbell has also been warmly
congratulated on his rcr.urn. When Gen.
Gillmore's expounders drove him from his
house and his law office, his family retired
to Columbia. His palatial mun sion there,
with its libraries, pictures and furniture,
eseaped destruction, and has continued its
bountiful hospitality, presided over hy Miss
Campbell, a lady well known North and
South, and best appreciated where best
"Mr. Campbell is a New Englander, hut
his public career has been altogether in the
South. During the war he stood by his
friends, but constantly denounced the mal?
administration of Davis, predicting the ruin
it would bring.
"He was one who protested at the time
against the bombardment of Sumter, and
denounced the trickery- and follies of
Davis, Waiker, Beauregard and others,
who wanted to open, supposing'it all to be
piain sailing. His large influence will be
directed to produce au honest acceptance of
the tenus of the victor? and a wise acqui?
escence in thc new order of things lor the
restoration of arc-united Government and
Of the facts detailed or asserted in these
paragraphs, wc arc not prepared to speak.
Whatever may have been Mr. Campbell's
record, we can bear test imony to his mode?
ration in views, and the general shrewd?
ness, judgment and good sense of his opi?
nions. He is an anle lawyer-one of the
able-t in the State-and lias served in the
Legislature, to the acquisition of leading
distinction. Wo knew and co-operated
with him in the domestic war of nullifica?
tion bi 1 bttn. ]??? evident talent secured
him t'ue special favor of llou. J. lt. Poin?
setta, in whose confidence he continued to
the cloie of Mr. IVs career and life. It is
certain that Mr. Campbell was never in
?*uy way engaged in thc cause of seces?
sion. He seems to have abstained altoge?
ther from thc subject, preserving the even
tenor of his way as a professions! man. It
was in this character solely, and as one <
generally recognized and large ahilitv,
that he necame a member from Charleston
in the Stale Legislature.
Mr. Campbell is well educated, is a classi
cal scholar and is weM read as a man ?.
letters. His first occupation ia Soutl
Carolina was as a teacher of thc* young or,
Edisto Island. He is probably iif:y-ilv<
years of age.
Reconstruction in Mississippi."
Governor Sharkey has been inaugurate?:
r.s Provisional Governor of thc State o
Mississippi, and has issued his proclamatioi
for re-organization. The appointment
which he has submitted to the Executive
at Washington, include, weare told, nearly
every oflieer of thc late Government
Under the programme marked out by th.
Governor's proclamation, thc State may tn
full}7 restored to all its former relation
with the General Government during th
present year. State elections may cm

NEW YOILK 1>AII.Y NEWS.-This realb
valuable paper, which, without forfeitini
the favor of tho North, has been as friendl*
to the Sont!: as was consistent with it
allegiance, is renewed in dress and charac?
ter, and continues to be published unde
the most favorable auspices. IL is
sterling and independent journal, stead fas
in its adherence to the Constitution-au
. veering and fluctuating with every chang
of wind ia the aura popularis-not g.;
verned by any blasphemous isms-no
running any insane bobbi -not bigoted
not malignant; but manly, bold, libera
and magnanimous; and its intellects
utterances are of a sort with its morals. 1
is at once a thoughtful, philosophical an
spirited exponent of the time*, of Tn
century and of tho progress of ci vii izatioi
We should wish to see it largely circula
ed ia the South. Thc subscription pru
is moderate-ns ?ow. indeed, as any of tl
city papers of Gotham-and much sup*
ritii* in mechanical execution to most i
them. To its etli'.or, the Ihm. rten. Woo.
our puh-'sher is highly indebted for vah
al!e and value;! favors, and wc sincere!
trust that the circula'ion of his paper wi
increase in duo proportion with its merit
Aloro we cannot say.
? "?Jr? Davis ?s residing iu Savauu;Ui, a:;
> -ir-' i ?vb* ?cry poor.
A correspondent of the Kew York
Heraldwrites from Columbi? as follows:
Speculators in-cotton have commenced
to arrive, and are creping about thc country
buying wherever they can tb advantage.
Three Western men arrived here y ester
dav, via Charleston. They have succeeded
in buying several hundred bales in small
lots, at from ten ?J fourteen cents in gold.
There appears to be a general feeling of
distrust in South Carolina of paper money.
They were so severely bitten by the rebel
Government that it has shaken their con?
fidence in all paper currency.
There ,is one Bubject upon which it ia
impossible to talk with Southern people
without nt once raising a breeze, and upon
which it is impossible to reason with them;
and that is the policy of granting negroes
the right of suffrage. On this point they
are united. No amount of reasoning can
convince thani of the right or justice of
the plan, and nothing lint the force of
arms will ever induce them to submit to
it. They say that they give up their
slaver, willingly; but when you come to
put him uxion a social orpolitical equality
with us. it is more tha'n we can stum!, lu
time they ?Jmay ho induced u> grant 'ho
privilege upon certain conditions; such as,
for instance, being able to read and write,
and Hie owner of a thousand dollars ?ti
Government securities. I doubt the fea?
sibility of church membership qua i i fi ca- ?
lions, as nine-tenths of theru are members I
of the church. j
As far rs South Carolina is concerned,I i
think it would be perl, elly safe lo place
it upon theTgroutid of being abb: to read j
and write, at the same time reetrieling th's
whites to tl.-e sa;uu test; for in the. ti rat
year there ?-?ll be more negroes who pos?
sess thal accomplishment in the State tuan
white people. The uesroes ocr,ai.dy are
very desirous of enlightenment, an?: the
;ii-st use of their freedom, as fur :.s my j
experience goes, is to learn to r> ad. Their
opportunities, ns yet, are very limited, ?is '
tlie oil;;:-ns do till in their [JOwer tri dis?
courage it; but it is frequently the easel
! that I s>-e negroes^ who by sonn means
have learned to read, seat eil by the road
tide leaching their less enlightened bre a- j
rcn and sisters the alphabet. Schools will
undoubtedly be established as soon as flu
wants of this class aro h..own at the ?
I was r. ?rood deal amused at the con- i
vers?t icu <>f an intulligtmt odored driver, ',
who was^pointiiig out the places of inte- j
I rest to us a- he drove us about the city.
I Upon passing the Insane Asylum, wcaskci '
j him if there were m -.ny coarin, d there wi \
many now, bui,"savs he. "J. ?rd bress you,
massa, you ought to have seen" how fas',
they t?yked crazy after th? censa !? tum j

used lo'hring them in by tilina 'red, :.> i
crazy that they couid not go i...:?> t: ? j
army; but ns soya as tho war w is ov.-r, ?
they had justas much cense r.s I have." i
This same neuro told me that when ;-.>!:!<? :
of our prisoners were passing through
there, one of them toi 1 him they had had
nothing to eat, for two .jays, ile ..vent ..:f
art.l boiigiit. forty loaves of bread, which
he managed to slip in to them ;:t night.
He was informed on bv some person^that

The. ladies of the South take their de?
feat much more, to heart thaa^the nivn.
Tliey aro bitter in their language and often
insulting in manner towards Norlnern
people." They have I een so long used to
the ease and luxury of slave labor, that
they lind it. dif?eult i J come down to the
realities of lifo and cook their own ciia
ners. The poor class of white women ure
th" mes! ignorant and debased people in
tho world. Without education or natural
intelligence, they live in hovel?, perfectly
content if they have a lit*'. . bacon and
ci ra meal and snub', of which they usc
lanie quantities. Their manner of using
-nuif consists in saturating rho end of a
stick i-i it and holding it i.i the mouth
until the strength :s gone, when they re?
peat the op?ration. This they call '.?lip
pin:;." "i. addition to this, many of tin-m
chew tobacco. *
As a whole, th<> stale of society at the
South is in a deplorable condition. The
men h ive neither the means nor ambition
to take hold and try to extricate them?
selves from their etubarrassrne tits. In the
loss of their negroes, they think they have
lost all worth living for, and prognost ?eat rs
