Washington, February 17, 1866.
You will please send to these head?
quarters, as soon as practicable, and
from time tb time thereafter, such
copies of newspapers published in
your department as contain senti?
ments of disloyalty and hostility
to the Government in any of its
branches, and state, whether such
paper'is habitual in its utterances of
such sentiments. The persistent pub?
lication of articles calculated to keep
up the hostility of feeling between
the different sections bf the country
cannot be tolerated. This informa?
tion is called for with a view to their
suppression, which will be done from
these headquarters only.
By command of Lieut. Gen. Grant.

TUMBLING OF PRICES.-Last week

nization of Mr. Henry Price.

in all the other States of the Union
to this company, to be cultivated by
the immigrants* allotting one fanega
to each one, but if the latter should
cultivate a larger extent of vacant
land and establish his permanent re?
sidence in the country and the culti?
vation of the land, a title as proprie?
tor will be furnished him arter the
expiration of three years.
4- There is conceded to the com- I

Amazonas should not have begun
arriving within eighteen months from
the date on which the present con?
tract is agreed upon, this fact alone
will render the stipulation made with
him null and of no effect.
7. The company will establish the
coming of the emigrants to whom the
preceding article refers by a certifi

The Greenville Mountaineer, of the
20th, has an editorial embracing a
resume extract from a letter received
by the editor from ex-Governor
Perry. It will be seen that the" State
Works at Greenville, and the Gas
Works at Charleston, seized by the
United States Treasury Agent, are to
be given tip. We make the follow?
ing extracts from the Mountaineer's
We learn from this, that matters
are not so gloomy and (lark, alto?
gether, os from the threatening of the
radicals we might suppose. Go?
vernor Perry heard the opinion ex?
pressed, and coming, too, from very
high authority not likely to be mis?
taken, that "there was an undtr-cur
rent at work which was crumbing to
pieces the radical party, and they
would separate-that, the prospect
was decidedly hopeful, and thjtt the
Southern members would soon be
It is manifest that President John?
son is coming up to the highest
standard of patriotism. On al} occa?
sions his annunciations of sentiments,
principles and policy, are worthy of a
great man, and of an American states?
man before the corruptions cf war
and civil strife had perverted tie un?
derstandings and drowned tho little
patriotism of inferior natures in a sea
of passion. What a noble contrast to
men of the Stevens type. Governor
Perry, in company with Messrs.
Trescot and Buist, of this State*
called on the President first on the
10th instant. "Wo found him (says
Gov. P.) engaged with the Christian
Commission, and heard his address to
them. He stated that his policy of
Government included all the States,
and that he knew no North, no South,
no East, no West; that his religion
embraced, the whole world, and that
he recognized every honest man as
his brother." After receiving the
promise of an interview the next day,
the party retired. The President is
"looking remarkably well and seem?
ed in good spirits; his manners are
always kind and pleasant." The Pre?
sident alluded to his interview with
Fred. Douglas and his uegro com?
mittee tho day before; he knew, of
course, that the committee had been
sent to him, and he was guarded in
his language. The ultra radicals
these political Pharisees-are evident?
ly watching everything the President
says and does, with a view to find
something upon which to persecute
him, but the President is aware of
their purposes, and is equally guarded
and firm. They will make nothing
of capital for themselves ont of such
men as Andrew Johnson and General
Grant, if we are to judge by prece?
Gov. Perry, with Mr.~ Trescot,
called again the next day after their
first interview with the President.
Whilst on this visit, Mr. Seward and
Mrs. Daniel Webster called, and im?
mediately afterwards, Gov._ David?
son, Postmaster-General. .Both the
Secretaries met then very cordially.
President Johnson requested them
to call on the Attorney-General and
have the United States Court for
South Carolina organized. This
Gov. Perry was to attend to on Tues?
day last. Tho organization of a Civil
Court of the United States will be a
great security to our citizens in hav?
ing every matter tried according to
the strict forms and rules of estab?
lished law," with the right incident of
appeal to the Supreme Court of the
Gov. Perry alludes to thc novel
condition of the negroes in Wash?
ington. "In going to the capitol he
was amused to see ragged, dirty,
black, lazy negroes, sauntering over
the buildings, taking their seats in
the galleries, and diffusing through
tho heated atmosphere of the House
and Senate all tho odors of Africa's
villainous compound." Having of?
ficial business with the > ecretary of
War, Gov. Perry called on that
officer, and it was satisfactorily ar?
ranged. "He found the Secretary
very kind and obliging-particularly
so." "Since grim-visaged war has
smoothed his wrinkled front," it is
but meet, it seems to us, that all his
ireful agents should conform their
tempers to the more placid mood of
that terrible god. The Secretary
and great Generals of tho United
States appear to be adjusting their
features to correspond with the
times, and aro beginning to speak
smooth things, and are moro civil
than the civilians "so-called," Ste?
vens, Sumner, et id ornne genus.
The speech of Reverdy Johnson,
of Maryland, delivered in the United
States Senate, on Friday, the 9th in?
stant, Governor P. characterizes as a
very favorable one. The speaker in?
quired if the North was afraid tc
meet the South intellectually? Thc
question was well put; they cannot be
afraid of the South numerically.
There are too many radicals, alas,
capable of defying reason and know
ledge, and they need not fearfintel
lect. Reverdy Johnson was to pre
lent the credenliais of Governor P.
to the United States Senate on Tues
lay last; what action may be taken,
will soon be known.
The most interesting informatiot
inmediately to this State, is the state
nent made to Governor P. by thc
President, that tho State Works, al
greenville, and the Gas Works, ii
Charleston, lately seized by the Trea
jury Agent for the United States,
would be given up. This would be i
jreat relief and benefit to the people
of South Carolina, and the Treasury
of the General Government would
realize comparatively an insignificant
sum by carrying out their proceedings
against this property.
We have taken the liberty of giving
the substance of the information con?
tained in the letter of Governor P. to
one of the editors, adding a few ob?
servations and comments of our own.
We know our readers will be gratified
at the opportunity of hearing from
the seat of power in this country,
through a source so intelligent and
every way reliable.
Thc "White Hange" ?tnd the "Black
We find, in the Washington cor?
respondence of the New York Exjyress,
the followiug reference to the two
powers in the national capital:
The -'White House" and the "Black
House" are here the two names of
thft two ends of this capital.' Andrew
Johnson is the President of the first,
and Thad. Stevens of the last. What
is done in the Black House you read
daily in newspapers. White Con?
gressmen as yet figure below stairs,
but black embryo Congressmen are
studying in large masses in the
galleries. Sambo, Scipio, Cato and
Cicero, Dinah and Diana, Calypso,
Georgiana, Hannah. &c, in wool and
ivory, reign as the oligarchy of the
skin in these galleries. The Demo?
crats having been thinking of propos?
ing-but not yet daring to propose
that a corner gallery be set apnrt for
white women-and the Republican
wives and daughters are very anxious
that they should propose-but no
Democrat as yet has been bold enough
to make that little proposition. Liberte,
Egalit?, Fraternit?, is now the Ameri?
can law, as well as the Danton-Robes?
pierre law. The men submit to it;
only the women rebel. The men are
cowed; but the women will not hold
their tongues. Woman is by nature,
without regard to politics, an aristo?
crat-and she is not ready for the
Egalit? and Fraternit? as yet. But
she has come to iu oth.;r countries
in all the mixed and motley Spanish
American States, for example-and
she must make up her mind in this,
to marry a Sambo, l>y-and-by.
The "White House," however, con?
tinues to be "white" up to this hour.
Strange to say, Andrew Johnson, the
tailor, thinks, and acts, as if this were
now (as well as had been) a white
I man's country! "Washington, report
says, and Tom Jefferson, he deems
quite as well stored with wisdom as
Thad. Stevens & Co. Nevertheless,
there is a keen and sharp contest
going on between the two houses,
white and black, and the two Presi?
dents therein. King Thad. Stevens
is sure the Black House will be the
Government-but it must be con?
fessed, the tailor is cool, and calm,
and is looking on-as if he were sure
that the Governme nt he had received
from, and through the hands of
Washington, Adams, Madison, Mon?
roe and Jackson, will continue to be
the Government yet. And then, he
has one advantage over King Thad.
All the Generals who are good for
anything agree with him. In a revo?
lution, you know, the Generals are of
a great deal more importance than
the politicians. Words are nothing
in comparison with guns, and-upon
the whole-if there is to be a fight
between the two houses, and the two
Governments therein, better side
with "the heavy artillery" in the
Meanwhile-as the embryo revolu?
tion is brewing in the two Houses,
white and black, Washington here
never was gayer, or happier, than
now. "OM Dansera" from morn till
dewey eve, from deAvey eve till morn,
or in plainer prose, they end about
5 or 6 a. m., and begin again about
3 or 4 p. m., in the so-called matinees.
The number are so great, that Gen.
Grant's new house was run down and
: captured, one night last week-while
I at the "Secretaries" more crinoline
I was crushed than Connecticut hoop
? manufacturers can provide for in a
1 week. The legal, lateral space of a
lady now-a-days, is said to be seven
feet-but they were put into two feet
at least, the last week, by the higher
if not the lower law. The wrecks
that escape from these crushes are
only mutiled monuments of h um an i
j ty, such as were probably seen on
j great field days of the civil war.
FLORIDA.-A correspondent of the

LETTER FROM PRICE.-We are per?
mitted to publish the following ex?
tracts from a letter written by Gen.
Sterling Prico to a friend in this
CORDOVA, MEXICO, Jan. 16, 1866.
Judge Perkins, Governor Harris,
Colonel (Pawnee) White and his fa?
mily, the Episcopal Minister, Mr.
Holman and his family, myself and
others, are now living in our new
town-Carlotta. The Americans that
were in Monterey and San Louis Po?
tosi are now on their way thither, as
we learn from Capt. M. F. Maury.
Several Louisianians have lately ar?
rived here, in search of new homes
for themselves and families. They
have thought best to purchase im?
proved lands from private individuals,
and have done so, paying down
So,OOO in cash, and getting as much
time as they desired for the deferred
payments. They have returned to
the United States for their families.
If the immigration from the States
shall be as great as I anticipate, pro?
perty of every kind will greatly in?
crease in value, and I therefore think
that those who have made np their
minds to come to Mexico, should do
so at once. The inducements to me?
chanics to come here are very great,
While the native laborer can be hired
at fifty cents a day, out of which he
finds himself, mechanics earn excel?
lent wages. For instance, the rail?
road company offers to contract for
brick at $25 a thousand, and lime at
$1.25 per hundred, and the country
abounds in timber and in limestone
of an excellent quality; a wheel wright
or a tanner would make a fortune
very soon. * * *

DEMAND FOR LABOR IN THE SOUTH?
WEST.-We learn from the New Or?
leans papers that the demand for
labor there in every department of
mechanics is such as to absorb the
entire supply. Never since the first
settlement of New Orleans, has it
been greater than it now is. One
paper says that the mechanics and
laboring men are in greater power
than ever before, and that they are
"educating and elevating themselves,
and are maintaining an unbroken
front in their efforts to break down
the barriers that hitherto opposed
their rapid progress in society and
political position." Those who are
so greatly exercised lest things in the
South revert to their former condi?
tion, and who fear that slaveholding
aristocracy will again resume their
former sway, should consider a fact
like this. We hear the same thing of
other parts of the South. A new
class is coming into power, new ideas
are gaining tho supremacy. It must
be so, for that upon which the old
caste was based, and which gave it
power, has passed away forever.

wo would be obliged to our exchanges
generally to do us the like favor.
To tin; numerous friends who have sig?
nalized the announcement of our purpose
with so much encouragement, we beg to
make our special and grateful acknow?
ledgments. We are gratified to be ablo
to say to them, and to tho publie at
largo,'that we have a fair prospect of soon
removing all obstacles in the way of our
enterprise. The marked and distinguished
favor which attended it in former and hap?
pier days from its inception to its destruc?
tion, shall not be forfeited in these gloomy
times, by any less faithful devotion to the
interests and honor of our unfortunate
country. C. P. PELHAM,
Editor and Proprietor of the Guardian.
