WrNCHESTEB, VA- , September H. -
<J haye-several times, in the past four
weeks, heard the statement, as coming
from Mr. Seward, that sdthough the
Government has been besieged by
petitions for pardon* in behalf of pro?
minent Southern men now under the
ban of the United States Government,
that there has never been one ' voice
raised in behalf of Mr. Davis; except
by Mrs. Davis herself, from which
Mr. Seward infers the. total?indiffer
ence of the Southern -people toward
the man whom; four years ago, by
acclamation, they raised to the highest
office in their gift. This charge, in?
volving, as it does, the honor and
chivalry of the South, is everywhere
met with indignation rind surprise.
Has Mr. Seward forgotten the procla?
mation offering a reward of one thou?
sand dollars for the apprehension of
Jefferson Davis as an accomplice in
the assassination of President Lin?
coln? It has been so long since any?
thing has been said about this, that
we scarcely wonder at Mr. Seward's
^forgetfulness, but the South itself has
?not forgotten. Could they, for a
"moment, suppose that Mr. -Johnson
would listen to a petition in favor of
a man who lay under so grave a charge
as the one just specified? It is not
as the leader of the Southern people
that Mr. Davis stands before the
world, but as an accused, though not
convicted, murderer, and I believe,
that were the United States Govern?
ment to open his prison doors, and
pronounce him free, he would be the
first to demand an investigation of
the foul charge, which must cut deeper
into the heart of a high-minded gen?
tleman than lochs, ham, or gyves.
It is true that, in the opinion of
many, Mr. Davis committed errors in
judgment; but the news of his arrest,
the effort, by an absurd story, to
throw him into contempt andridicnle,
his incarceration in Fortress Monroe,
the daily bidletin of his sufferings,
and the manly and dignified patience
with which he has borne them, has
brought back the estranged hearts,
and now as one man the thoughts of
the people tum to him in his lonely
I prison in the deepsst pity and love,
.ns one who, for his very faithfulness
t j them, ^bears the punishment for
the people, who stands as the martyr
to the canse which has cost them so
Coidd Mr. Seward look into the
hearts of the Southern people*, and
s,?e their writhing under tho prolong- j
ed and a}}parently unnecessary tor- |
ture to which their former chief is j
subjected, he would not accuse them ;
They turn themselves to Heaven.
and with strong cryings and tears
beseech God to interpose in his be?
half, but they never thought of peti?
tioning the "United States Govern?
ment. Did they, for one instant,
j imagine that it would avail, the voice
which has been just raised by the
women of Mississippi would sound
through thc length and breadth of
the Southern land, until the reproach
I Winch Mr. Seward lias uttered, would
Sie swept awlty by the strong arm of
' wuth, and the Southern people could
ilise their hoads and say: "Tout <t
prdu a l'honneur."-Correspondince

EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT S. C.,
WHEREAS it is ..represented that in
many portions of tho State there is
great disturbance and apprehension from
lawless persons, who are thieving, maraud?
ing and coniniitting afts of violence remote
from the military garrisons stationed at th*
Court Houses; and whereas Brigadier
General Ames, commanding thc North?
western portion of the State,has suggested
tho organization of a militia police force in
each District of his command, to act in
concert with his forces in preserving order
and peace in the community; and whereas
it is supposed that tho other military com?
manders will have no objections to the aid
aud assistance on the p?rt of the citizens in
suppressing crime and maintaining order;
and" whereas, also, it appears that Presi?
dent Johnson has sanctioned and author?
ized the Provisional Governor of Mississip?
pi to organize a similar force in that State,
and has forbidden the military authorities
thore to interfere with such organization:
Now, therefore, I, BENJAMIN FRANK?
LIN PERRY, Provisional Governor of the
State of South Carolina, do proclaim, order
and declare, that there shall bc formed and
organized iii each Judicial District one or
more militia companies for a home police,
to act under and be auxiliary to the mili?
tary garrison of such District in preventing
crimes and preserving the peace of the
District. The companies will consist of a
Captain and throe Lieutenants and eighty
men, scattered over the District so as to
be easily accessible from all points where
any disturbance may occur. When thc
companies are formed;?hey will report,
through their Captains, to the respective
Brigadier-Generals commanding in South
Carolina, and to the Provost Marshals at
the respective Court Houses, aud from them
receive their orders. When arrests have
boen made, they' trill turn the offenders
over to the civil authorities or bring them
before the Provost Court Marshal for trial
and punishment, according to tho terms of
agreement between Generals Meade and
Gilhxiorc and myself as to the respective
jurisdictions of the civil and military au?
thorities in South Carolina.
This police guard will be voluntary in its
organization, and should be composed of
none but discreet persons of -banding and
character in the community, who are wil?
ling to render their services promptly
when the occasion requires. It it, thought
iliac t?ic bare organization of such forces
throughout tho State, will have a most
salutary influence in preserving peace and
order and in preventing crime. The evil?
doers will know that there is a power, ready
at hand, to arrest them and bring them to
justice. It is to be hoped that all good
citizens will cheerfully render this service,
lt should be a post of honor, as it is, to
guard and protect the country.
