REVERDY JOHNSON OS THE PKOB.V
?TLITDZS OF A WAR WITH AUSTRIA.
In his reply to Mr. Trumbull in the
Senate, last Monday, speaking of tho
efforts the radicals were making to
fetter the President by taking from
him the power of appointment to
office, Mr. Reverdy Johnson said:
"Supposo the President, who is n
man of firmness and nerve, should
be of the opinion that it is the pur?
pose of Congress to war upon him,
by taking away from him the power
to remove, what will he do? He will
remove and not appoint. The wheels
of Government will stop. If the Pre?
sident is impeached for it he can de?
fend himself and appeal to the poo- j
pie. What is to be accomplished by
carrying on an apparent war, doing |
what never has been done in relation j
to any of tho*predecessors of the Pre?
sident? What is the condition of
the country? The war is over, and
the Union still practically dissolved. ;
What are the signs of the times? If
the instructions given by the Score- j
tary of State to our Minister to Aus
tria are carried out, the result will be !
war between this country and Ans
tris. We may defeat the few soldiers
she may send against us, but she will j
fill the seas with privateers to destroy |
our commerce. With the eleven
States excluded from the Union, we
are not in a condition to go to war;
and if the report of the Committee
on Reconstruction is adopted, these
States will be kept out till after the
next Presidential election."
(JEN. JOHN C. BRECKTNRIDGE.-The
J-iOuisvilie Journal thus speaks of this
noble statesman and soldier, of whom
every Kentuckian may well feel proud :
.'Maj. Gen. John C. Breckinridge
is still at Toronto. As all the rest of
the Confederate Generals are permit?
ted to go to their homes and wherever
else they please, why, in the name of ,
equal justice and Heaven, is he keptd
in banishment? What evil thing has
fte done that all other Confederate j
officers have not done? What officer
ever carried on war in a loftier spirit
of chivalry and courtesy than he, or
treated prisoners of war more consi?
derately and mercifully? Who is it
that has poisoned the mind of the
Administration against him? 'An

Burning of Columbia.
LETTER OP GENERAL WADE HAMPTON
TO THE HON. REVERDY JOHNSON.
The following well written letter,
addressed bj' General Wade Hamp?
ton to the Hon. Reverdy Johnson, in
relation to the burning of Columbia,
South Carolina, was read hy the lat?
ter in the Senate on Tuesday:
WILD WOODS, Miss.,
April 21, I860.
To the J ion. Reverify Johnson, United
Statt s Semite.
SIR. A few day? ago, I saw in the
published proceedings of Congress
that a petition from Benjamin Rawls,
of Columbia, S. C., asking compen?
sation for the destruction of his home
by the Federal army in February,
1865, had been presented to the
Senate, accompanied by a letter from
Major-General Sherman. In this
letter General Sherman used the fol?
"They," the citizens of Columbia,
"set tire to thousands of bales of
cotton rolled out into the streets, and
which were burning when I entered
Columbia. T myself was in the city
as early u? 0 o'clock, and saw these
fires, and knew that efforts had been
made to extinguish them, but a high
and stormy wind kept them alive. I
gave no orders for the buming of
your city, but, on the contrary, the
reverse, and I believe the conflagra?
tion resulted from the great impru?
dence of cutting the cotton bales,
whereby the contents were spread to
the winds, so that it became an im?
possibility to arrest the fire.
"I saw in your Columbia newspa?
pers the printed order of General
Wade Hamjiton, that on the approach
of the Yankee army all the cotton
should be burned, and, from what I
saw illy self, I have no hesitation in
saying that he was the cause of the
destruction of your city."
This grave charge made against me
by C?en. S., having been brought be?
fore the Senate of the United States,
I am naturally most solicitous to
vindicate myself before the same
tribunal. But my State has no rep?
resentative in tlu*t city. Those who
should be there are debarred the
right of entrance. In those halls,
there are nono to speak for the
South- none to participate in the
legislation which governs her-none
to impose the taxes she is called on
to pay- and none to defend her or to
vindicate her sons from misrepresen?
tation, injustice or slander. Under
these circumstances, I appeal to you,
in the confident hope that you will
use every effort to see that justice is
dom? in this matter.
1 deny most emphatically that any
cotton was tired in Columbia by my
order-I deny that her citizens set
fire to thousands of bales rolled out
into the streets-I deny that any cot?
ton was on fire when the Federal
troops entered the city. And I most
respectfully ask of Congress to ap?
point a committee charged with the
duty of ascertaining and reporting all
the facts connected with the destruc?
tion of Columbia, and thus fixing
upon the proper author of that enor?
mous crime the infamy that he de?
I am willing to submit the case to
any honest tribunal. Before any
such, I pledge myself to provo my
positive order, by direction of Gen.
Beauregard, that no cotton should be
fired-that not one bale was on fire
when Sherman's troops took posses?
sion of the city- that he positively
promised protection to the city-and
that, in spite of this solemn promise,
his soldiers burned it to tho ground
deliberately, systematically, atro?
ciously. 1, therefore, most earnestly
reqnest that Congress may take
prompt and efficient measures to in?
vestigate this matter fully. Not only
is this due to themselves and to tho
United States army, but to justice
and to truth.
Trusting that you will pardon me
for troubling von. T am, Arc,

The Conference met yesterday morning
at the usual hour.
A number of reports were presented and
bud over under the rules, and other rou?
tine business was disposed of.
A lengthy discussion took place upon the
report in roforenco to the publication of
Sunday School books, catechisms, etc.
Eventually, in reference to the principal
point, it was resolved to loavo it to the
book Agent to decide whether books should
bc purchased or published by the Church.
A resolution that the present stvle of the
Church, "The Methodist Episcopal Church,
South," should bo changed, was offered,
and carried by 109 to 22.
A preamble and resolutions, stating tho
reasons for tho original adoption of thc
epithet "South," recounting that those
reasons no longer exist, and proposing
that it should be changed, were then pre?
Thc question being first put on the ex?
punging of the word "South," it was car?
It was then proposed to make tho namo
one of nine suggested in tho subjoined
order, and they were so balloted for with
tho result stated, those not appearing with
any votes on the second and third ballots
having been dropped:

The vote on the third ballot being thus
in favor of "Thc Methodist Church." a
motion to unite in the adoption ot that
name was carried by a vote of 111 to 16.
A motion to adopt the name unanimously
was ohjected to.
The discussion of thc suhject was even
more lengthy than anv of the previous
ones, keeping tho Conference in session
till nearly or quito 4 o'clock in the after?
noon. Nothing new, however, was elicited
upon the subject.
Eventually, the resolutions of the report
wero adopted seriati7n, as amended. The
question of the adoption of the preamble,

Notice was given that a train of cars
wonld be in waiting on Canal street at

ladies have prepared to give them.

arrangements had boen made to take a
photographic picture of the members of
the Conference in a body, on the pic-nic j
The Conference, at 4 o'clock, adjourned
t<) meet again at 7 o'clock.
Tho Conference mot at 7 p. m., pursuant
to adjournment. |
Tho preamble of the report acted on in .
the morning was taken up, and a substi?
tute for the original one was offered, strik- j
ing out the relation that reasons for retain- '
mg thc word "'South" in the name ?>f the
churches no longer existed. Then, an
amendment to tho substitute, striking out
thc reference to thc reasons for the origi?
nal adoption of that term in 1845, was ?
offered: and thus amended, the preamble
was adopted, after considerable discus?
A motion being now made to adopt the i
report as a whole, another very lengthy ?
discussion ensued. OnG member objected
to tho dropping of the word "Episcopal" I
from the title, as depriving it of its most
distinctive characteristic, and one which it
had borne longer than that of anv other j
I Church in America; the Protestant Episco
. pal Church not having adopted it till five
years after the Methodist Episcopal Church
had; and he also urged that none of tho I
memorials to thc Conference hail proposed :
to expunge that word from the name. Py
1 another member it was argued that the
I present mme of the Church liad originally j
1 conveyed a reference to the question of the
j elation between master and servant, and
? that if the views of the Church upon that j
point aro the same now as they always had j
been, the word "South" ought to be re- :
tamed. Tho name "Methodist Episcopal
Church" alone, he objected to as being the
same as that adopted by the Northern
Church. One member Vehemently de
norm ced tho name "Methodist Church" as
"ridiculous," "contemptible." "false in \
grammar and false in fact," "superlatively
and absurdly arrogant," "nut decent," etc.,
and he stigmatized the action of those who
had supported it in a similar strain, the ;
most modest of the epithets he applied to 1
it being "a concent ration of hallucination."
Subsequently, he explained that he did not
intend any of his remarks to apply to indi- i
viduals, but that generally he meant all !
that he had said, and would in future in- !
A motion was herc made to insert
"Episcopal" beforo "Methodist" in tho ,
A member contended that ono reason at ;
the back of a desire of somo for the roten- j
tion of the word "South" was a political
one; and thia he thought was the best rea- |
son that could be given for expunging it. j
A resolution was offered requesting the
Board of Bishops to select ajiame for the
Church, submit it to thc annual confer?
ences, and, on its being adopted in them by
a three-fourths vote, submit it lo the
General Conference for adoption. It was
declared out of order.
A motion was made and carried to re?
consider the vote by which the namo
"Methodist Church" had been adopted.
Then it was moved to substitute for it
"Episcopal Methodist Church."
Another motion was made to make it
"Methodist Episcopal Church."
Each of these motions was lost on being
Then it was moved to adopt the report
as a whole, with the name of "The Meth?
odist Church," and the ayes and noos w.^ro
called. The motion was carried hy eighty
six to thirty-eight.
This gave tho motion a vote of more than
two-thirds of the members present; but
the President remarked that absent mem?
bers might come in this morning and vote,
and that a question might arise as to
whether it required two-thirds of those
voting, or two-thirds of tfTe whole number
