'.' Stft'tbe meantime, the Union suffers
I from the malevolence of an unprin?
cipled set of men, who, through chi
chanbry and double-dealing, have ao
qnired the eotttrol of the legislative
department of the Government." Re?
gardless of the voice of the people;,
regardless of their obliga tiens as rep?
resentatives of the people, and re?
gardless of their solemn oaths to vip-;
hold and defend the Coustitntion of
the United States-in fact, regardless
of every consideration except the ac?
complishment of their own wicked
and- perverse ends-these men are
driving the country headlong to de?
But for this squad of evil-doers,
the States of the Union would have
been re-united and the country re?
stored to harmony and peace, long
ere this. Every interest of commerce
and trade, which, for four years, had
been divided by civil wai-, have re?
newed their ancient relations of mu?
tual and reciprocal exchange of good
offices; every organization which,
before the war, had a united national
existence, has resumed that brotherly
condition-Masonic Lodges, Odd
Fellows' Societies, Printers' Unions,
and many other benevolent associa?
tions, have again become national,
not only in name, but in deed and in
truth. In primary and mass meetings
of the people of the North, in politi?
cal conventions, in religious commu?
nities, with, perhaps, a single excep?
tion, the whole people have spoken,
and, by the usual machinery of such
assemblages, preambles and resolu?
tions have, with one voice, declared
in favor of the Union as it was, and
the earbest practicable restoration ol
peace to the country.
Aud why, after this marked and
universal pulsation of tho great heart
of the American people for peace, has
it not come to bless the land? Sim?
ply because 140 or 150 bad and de?
signing men, with revenge in trleii
hearts, fanaticism in their shallow
brains, and ambition in their souls,
have determined to rule the country
and share the spoils of office, wrung
by unjust legislation from the pocket*
of the toiling masses of the people.
How long those people will stand it,
God only knows. As prevention if
better than cure in the rules of six
teen to one, so do we now think it th?
duty of the people to move ere it Ix
In one or two States of the Union
we have already the sad evidences o
the evils these men are hurrying upoi
the country. The large majority o
the people of Tennessee have beei
disfranchised, and their rights am
privileges wrested from them. Ii
Missouri, it is fully as bad, if no
worse. There they have put in forci
an odious test oath, which has already
been pronounced unconstitutional
The radical rowdies have not hesitatet
to break up meetings assembled t<
hear Gen. Blair advocating the Presi
dent's policy. Offensive weapon
were used with deadly effect in th
assaults of these miscreants, and ther
are many other indications, in tba
State, at least, that they are detei
mined, even by force, to sustain rad:
etd measures and men.
All this forbodes great and terribl
evils to our unhappy country
Scarcely has she emerged from a dest
luting civil war, with all its attendai
horrors, ere we have the .signs of
renewal of a similar conflict-nc
on the same questions nor on the sam
soil. xj?t tho conservatism of tl
country speak out in tones of thumb
to the misguided men; let all the coi
stitutional powers vested in the Ex?
e.ntive and Judiciary Departments (
the Government be brought in1

Some of W Soctberu exchanges
aro discussing tho propriety of ceJo
brating, in some approbate man her?
the return ol the anniversary of the
independence of the United States of
America. - We do not kncrvr what to
say of a coloration of that day; we
suppose every community will com?
memorate, or let it alone, as its mem?
bers may see fit and proper.
We of thc Southern States are in
such a quasi position of citizens of
this great republic, that we don't
know if we have a right to celebrate
the day. According to the radicals,
we have no such privilege, but, ac?
cording to the President's views, we
undoubtedly have. It remains with
the Southern people to decide which
view of the situation they will accept
that of regarding themselves out oi
the sisterhood of States composing
the Union, the radicals' view; or
whether, with President Johnson,
they consider the States of the South
fully restored to all their rights anti
Believing that they will occupy tht
latter's stand-point, and that, in .som*
way, the day will be noted, we ven
ture to make a suggestion or two.
While it is perfectly right aud con?
sistent with our present position, that
we should hold aloof from all meet
ings of a merely political character
yet, we think, "the fourth of July'
would be an appropriate day foi
the Southern people, in their primary
or mass meetings, to define fully thei:
views, re-declare their honest accept
ance of the results of the late war
and express their attachment to th?
policy of President Johnson for th?
reconstruction of thc Union. Sucl
demonstrations, coming directly fron
the i>eople themselves, and no
through Conventions or Legislatures
would convict the radicals of false
hood concerning the true position o
"the people," and strengthen the po
sition of the conservatives through
out the North and West, and would
doubtless, if generally acted oi
throughout the Southern States, hav
a salutary influenco on the eomiu;
fall elections in the sections referre?
to. What say our brethren of th
There is another suggestion w?
would make, with all due respect
and that is to thc President of th
United States. We feel that, as cit:
zens of the republic, acting with au
sustaining him iu his patriotic mei
sures for thc complete restoration e
peace to this distracted country, AV
are not tresspassing when we sugget
to him that he gets up a celebratio
of his own -one that will do hone
to his head and heart-and add ai
ther wreath to the crown of laurel
he already wears so gracefully on hi
brow, and to which he is so justly ei
titled; and thc celebration we propOfc
is, that on the morning of "the gl(
rions Fourth" (if he does not antic
pate tho suggestion,) that he sha
publish, under tho form of a solem
proclamation, and under the gre:
seal of the United States, a g?ner?
amnesty to all engaged iu the lal
struggle for "Southern Indepen?
euee," from the chieftain to the hun
blest private in tho rauks. If, coi
sistent with his sense of duty, 1
would do this, he would, hide**
make the "National Anniversary"
day of rejoicing in every State fro:
the Potomac to the Rio Grande, ar
win for himself immortality as
statesman and a patriot. It is h
high prerogative, and we sincere
recommend him to its exercise <
that fitting occasion.
Let tho proclamation be follow*
j by a general withdrawal of trooj
1 from among the Southern pcopl
and confidence will be full}' restore
peace and harmony re-establishe
and the admission of representativ
to Congress become a secondary co
sideration, as the radicals being tin
foiled, that event would shortly ha
pen. Such is our programme for t
celebration of the "Fourth."
I Those of our readers who are n
j well posted in history may bo int?r?t
j ed to know the date of tho aboliti?

The Southern Cultivator publishes a
letter from ft farmer seventy-eight
years old, who is managing a farm in
Georgia of 380 acres. In his letter is
this piece of wholesome advice to
young men-particularly applicable
at this time :
"Young men of the South, consi?
der that a great change has come over
our domestic affairs. Let an old man
tell you to give up yonr double-bar?
reled shot-gun and pointer dog.
Don*t think yourself too good to
work; go to ploughing and hoeing,
or to some good mechanical trade;
stick to either. I can tell you, by my
own experience, that a hard, smutty
Sair ot hands can and will put clean
ollars into the pockets. The men
working regularly, either in shop or
field, enjoy life and rest more thar*
those in any other employment, and
far more than those who do nothing."
This is the advice of age and expe?
rience, from a man who is practically
exemplifying the theory he recom?
mends to others. Should this meet
the eye of any youth of vigorous
health, and the cap fits him, let bim
I wear it with grace, and betake him?
self with good will to performing his
part in retrieving the loRses of the
past, and laying a foundation for a
future fortune by following thia
j worthy old man's advice.

lowing just and proper remarks on
thc conditions on which, the radicals
propose to admit the Representatives
of the Southern States to Congress, j
Wc publish, in another column,
these conditions, amended and com?
plete, as they have passed both
Honses of Congress, and in the form
they will be submitted to the States
of the Union:
Does any sane man, any rational
SDlitician, if such a nondescript can
e found, ^appose that were the
South to accept the terms proposed
by the radicals in Congress they
would bo willing t o seo our "Repre?
sentatives back there? That factious
majority, at the head of which Chief
Justice Chase now stands, their Pre?
sident in prospectu, who are opposing
the wise policy of President Johnson,
offer us restoration to the Union, if
we will adopt their doctrine of negro
suffrage. This they demand and in?
sist ou, knowing the South will not
assent to such a bargain. If the
South were to accept their terms to?
morrow, nobody would be more sur?
prised or shocked than these self?
same radicals. We much fear that
not oven the uoqitet cV African^, in
allopathic doses, would restore
Messrs. Sumner, Stevens & Co. from
the collapse into which they would
inevitably sink upon the announce?
ment that the South had accepted
their proposed bargain and ?dopted
negro suffrage. They offer it because
they know it will not be accepted,
and woi?d be excessively surprised
were the South to adopt it, and their
plan of perpetuating their power by
the exclusion of the Southern States
be defeated. Were we inclined to
entertain their proposition, we would
distrust their sincerity, well knowing
that it is but an excuse for delay, and
that, wore it accepted, other ob?
stacles would be thrown iu thc
way of our restoration.
Were tho negroes made voters to?
morrow, they would add nothing to
the Republican strength. In nine
cases out of ten, we believe they
would vote with their former masters
and employers, who are their natural
guardians and protectors, and to
whom now, in trouble or distress,
they look for protection and assist?
ance, and do not look in vain. To the
great disgust of the anti-slavery so?
ciety, we would wager that ninety
nine in a hundred would vote with
theh former masters. We under?
stand them, and speak knowingly;
have been brought tip by and amongst
them, and appreciate their common?
sense views of their own interests.
Their white employers would have
twice the influence with them ol
those nasal-twanged gentlemen ol
Andover, those pions theological
I fledglings from the Cambridge divini?
ty school or the radiant army ol
? lovely "school-marms" that has in
i vaded us. Good juicy Virginia ba
! con, corn bread, hominy and a tum?
bler of whiskey, would have a hun
dred-fold the effect that all the cod-fisi
and hard-tack the "Besting" market
could import or produce. John
I Brown's perturbed spirit could novel
! contend in this world with Davj
j Crockett's stylo of electioneering.
And this the radicals would learn ti
i their cost, should they succeed it
forcing negro suffrage on tho unbap
py South. The Southern planter,
like a Highland chieftain at the heat.'
of his dan, would marshal his hantl?

Many travelers and tourists were wont to

beauties. It was emphatically a garden
city, with its shaded streets, its number?
less private gardens, filled with rare exo?
tics and choicest dowers, the tasteful ele?
gance of its private residences, the refine?

bined to render Columbia one of the most
attractive spots in the country.
But, alas! thc sad ravages of a ruthless -
civil war have wrought a mournful change.
The rows of shade trees arc now repre?
sented by charred, boughless and leafless
trunks; the rose trees and evergreens have
disappeared with the elegant dwellings
thoy adorned, and nought remains but a
j few dilapidated chimney-stacks, crumbling
i to piles of brick-bats. There are no attrac
