Rr ra perm t io li?
lt is with pleasure that we daily j
record the increasing prosperity of j
our neighboring cities. The energy j
and pers?v?rance displayed by tho j
Southern people immediately after j
such a devastating war is unparal- j
leled. Iustead of sinking into de?
spondency, and giving np all as lost, !
they have heroically placed their
shoulders to the wheel, and extricated
themselves from the quagmire of de?
spair iuto which, for some months at
first, it was supposed they had sunk.
- Atlanta, which, like our own ill- |
fated city, was consigned to the torch,
is being rapidly rebuilt. The rubbish
of burnt brick and charred lumber
is fast giving way to stately edifices
and capacious warehouses, and, above
all, to large and numerous foundries
and work-shops. Atlanta has always
been the great mechanical city of the
South, and again is the hammer to be
heard within her walls, which plainly ?
tells of her return to her former self.
With excellent railroad facilities,
three or four railroads diverging from
its centre, Atlanta is destined to be
oae among the leading commercial
e nporiums of the South.
In our own once beautiful city, the
work of recuperation is going bravely
on. We have already noticed several
of the new and substantial stores
erected on Main street. We now ob?
serve that Mr. John Agnew has
erected a capacious brick building cor?
ner of Plain and Richardson streets,
intended for a hardware store. Next
door, Mr. B.- C. Anderson is con?
stricting two new large and handsome
stores, and on the same block, for?
merly known as Granite Bange, Mr.
T. D. Davis is erecting several stores.
Messrs. Gregg & Co. also intend to
erect a store on the same block, on !
the former site of the Commercial
Bank. South of Plain street, Mr.
Bedell is about erecting a handsome 1
store on the site of his old stand and (
that adjoining, formerly occupied by |
Messrs. Falls Sc Kinard. I
We have already noticed the large '
and substantial stores occupied by .
Messrs. Kenneth & Gibson, Brown, j
Stenhouse and others. We now learn s
that Messrs. E. & G. D. Hope are
preparing to put a handsome iron j j
front two-story building on their old | ?
Bite, and immediately in front of ! <
their present store, which, when com- j '
pleted, will be one of the largest ! ,
stores in the city. Mr. Brennan is j j
erecting^n_-?xtensive carriage fae. i \
tory; Goldsmith's foundry is in full | J
blast, and Mr. Alexander's will soon
be in active operation. It is thus 1
that our citizens are bestirring them- j
selves to retrieve their losses by the \
war, and restore their city to her
former prosperity and beauty. We j
glean from our exchanges that other 1
neighboring cities and towns-Char
lotte, Charleston, ?cc.-are all ener- ;
getically at work, rebuilding and
establishing manufactories, &c.
Many other evidences of the ener- ?
gy and spirit of our people are being j
developod here and elsewhere. We ;
are truly gratified to see that, although
well nigh utterly prostrated by the !
ravages of wa*-, the Southern people
have not succumbed to the dire disas- j
ters which stunned them for a timo, j
but have gone earnestly to work to
retrieve their shattered fortunes. All j
honor to the men who have clung to
the South in her darkest hours, and de- !
voted their energies ai.d the slender
remnant of their fortunes to the work
of recuperation. This indomitable j
will and persistent effort will ere long >

cities, and restore them to their for

the Bureau a list of questions, which
they aro directed to answer, including I
the following, viz:
Whether the civil authorities en?
deavor to arrest and punish those
who wrong or abuse the freedmen;
and if so, whether they generally
succeed iQ punishing the guilty?
Whether the service of nn agent of

to secure justice to the freed people;
and, if the Bureau was removed,
wuether the civil authorities would
nrotect their rights? Also, whether
in their opiniou the tone and temper
of the whites are improving toward
the freed people, and if they think
the time is approaching when the
control of the freed people maj be
safely entrusted to them.

The New York Herald, in its issue \
ofvthe add inst., volunteers nearly a
column of advice to the Southern
people, on the information* that it hiu?
reo?ived "froin many and reliable
soirees," thai ''the people of the
South are chafing a good deal under
the suffering and humiliation their
rebellion has brought on them." He
says that "nursing their prejudices
and foolishly turning their backs
upon the Yankees, is not onrjfcchild
ish, but rainons and dangerous to
themselves." Tin's is all balderdash ;
the "so-called" "Nestor of the Press"
has been misinformed. "We can tell
the New York Herald, in the heart of
South Carolina, at its capital, that no
such feelings exist as those which its

House agrees to the Senate amend?
ments to tho habeas corpus bill, passed
in the Spnuto yesterday. This mea?
sure originated and waspassedby the
House on the 20th of last month.
Tl ie Senate hus passed the same bill
with two amendments, which no
doubt tho House will agree to, and
then comes the President's action,
which, as before stated, I expect to
result ina veto. The bill is nt war
with the principle which Mr. Johnson
lias over and over nguiu avowed his
determination to uphold and main?
tain. lu the form the measure 1ms
passed both houses, it is clearly un?
constitutional, and embodies, iu the
form of legal enactment, the idea of
centralization of power in tho Na?
tional Government, lt takes from
the States rights reserved to them
expressly in the Constitution.
This is another instance of hasty
and passionate legislation, for which
the Thirty-ninth Congress hus he
come notorious, lt is of n class ot
legislation that, as expressed by Sc
nator Edmunds on Thursday last,
will return, like the plague, upon th?
heads of those who participate in it.
Notwithstanding this new Seuatoi
from Vermont (who is of tho radical
family, and sont herc to vote with h?
brethren,) warned the Senate of th?
ill effects of sueh legislation, he nu
accountably voted for the bill upon
One of the ablest arguments made
against this measure in the debat?
upon it was that of Air. Edmunds,
upon an amendment offered by him
self. That amendment was rejected
and yet he voted for the bill finally.
Such is radical consistency.
Adopting the argument of Senator!
Cowan and Edmunds, both sonne
law, the President must veto the bill
in truth, he must do so to be consis
tent with himself.
The bill as passed in the Senat?
yesterday, provides, in brief, that an;

The radical lenders tte exerting
themselves to the uttermost of their
power to coerce Parliament into the
passage of the franchise bill. They
do not confine themselves to holding
meetings of their constituents in the
Counties, cities and boroughs in
which the people assembling reside,
but are attempting to get ap a mon?
ster mob from all parts of the island
to crowd at the doors of the hulls of
legislation and demand that the pro?
posed measure shall be made a law.
To draw together this mob, they are
resorting to various devices. The
people are not only urged to come to
the metropolis by the blatant voice of
the demagogue on the hustings, but
radical employers propose to make
the 12th of the month (the day ap

have issued circulars, which are being
i distributed amongst the mauufac
? turers of the right stripe, and doing
! everything in their power to secure
: concert of action. Should they sue
! coed in getting together such a mob
j as tiley desire, and in infusing into it
I such sentiments as they have been

j reason to believe that the affair will
