t v4?e-#or? gratified to announce, the
. other day, the release of Mr.- Bagan,
who,; aitaaT?ii?ving 1/een discharged by
jjudge Nelson* in Albany, -was ro
arrestcd by the military authorities
io this Sbvte. f In connection with
the subject of military courts, we
notice that Judge Ballard, of Ken?
tucky; ia. pronouncing an opinion in
?-?afiea? eorjitts case brought before
him,- used the following terse ami
"I agree With Sir James Mackin?
tosh, wat; 'while Ute laws aro silenced
by tlie noise of arms, tho rulers of
the.armed,force must punish, as equi?
tably as they can, thoso crimes which
threaten their, own safety and that of
society, bu^k.no longer;every moment
beyond is usurpation. As soon as the
laws can act,, every other mode of pu?
nishing supposed crimes is itself un
"Let the relator be discharged."
1? There are no words -wasted in tho
:above opinion, and every friend of
constitutional liberty will agree not
only with the premises, but the re
? suit of them, viz: that the trial of
-civilians by military courts, after
peace has been declared, is wro ng.

; At a convention of tho newspaper
publishers of Mississipx>i, held nt
Jackson, a short time ago, the fol?
lowing resolution was adopted :
Resolved, That we deprecate and
I4eplqre. the systematic misrepresents
tions'by Northern radical journals of
the views and feelings of the South -
. ern people, in their charges on our
disloyalty and hostility to the Gene?
ral Government; and in- speaking for
Mississippi, we believe we cnn speak
' for the entire South, in declaring
that there is nothing moro desired by
our people than a faithful co-opera?
tion in the legitimate ends of the Go?
vernment, and the recognition of our
rights to prove our loyalty by the ac?
tion and d?clarations of our Repre?
sentatives in Congress.
This tells the whole truth as re?
gards tho position of the press and
people of the whole South; but whe?
ther the resolution will be heeded or
regarded by tho organs of radicalism,
is very doubtful.
EDGEFIEI?D.-Wc publish the fol?
lowing action of a meeting of the
citizens of Edgefield and Lexington,
held at or neat thc Ridge, in Edgefield
District, ou tho 21st inst. Wo may
have a word of comment hereafter:
Resulted, That it is unwise, impolitic,
unreasonable and grossly subversive
of the best interests of tho country,
to maintain that the great upheaving
of property and revulsion of finances
which the country has experienced
should not be a most powerful argu?
ment in favor of the rights of debt?
ors against claim's that were predi?
cated on slave property, now swept
away os by the besom of destruction,
an event which could neither be fore?
seen nor avoided.
Resolved, That debtors have rights
as well as creditors, and that, while
the former are not disposed to deprive
the latter of a reasonable satisfaction
for their favors in the post, they most
earnestly and urgently protest against
having their rights ignored, and jus?
tice trampled upon ; which must in?
evitably be the result, unless the im?
pending evil be averted by un organic
law of the land.
Resolved, That the Chairman ol'
this meeting be requested to appoint
a commission of three of our citizens
to wait upon his Excellency tho Go?
vernor, at an early day, and urge
upon him to assemble the Legislature
as soon as possible, to the end that
measures maybe adopted to avert the
ruin and distress now threatening to
fail upon us.
Resolved, That our fellow-citizens
throughout tho State be requested to
oo-operato with us in urging the
justice of our cause.
Resolved, That tho thanks of this
meeting are eminently due, and are
hereby tendered, to tho Hon. A. P.
.-Mdrich, for his able, manly and in?
dependent effort on tho Bench to stay
the disasters of which we have spoken
in tho preceding preamble and reso?
Resolved, That these resolutions be
published in the Edgefield Advertiser,
and in the Columbia and Charleston
papers, and that a copy of them be
.sent to the Hon. A. P. Aldrich.
GOVERNOR BICKENS.-Wc noticed,
some days ago, a paragraph from an
Augusta paper, refuting tho reports
that Governor Pickens was danger?
ously ill. The Edgefield Advertiser,
ol Wednesday, .says:
"For some mouths past, at inter?
vals of twenty-one days, Governor
Pickens has been visited with severe
chills, and his general health is not
so good as in former days; yet he ha*
not boen ill. If we mistako not, thc

names that, since the outcropping of |
the conspiracy against the President,
against the tjnion, against the Con- j
stitution, and against Republican]
form of government itself, arc en?
shrined in all true hearts for their j
self-sacrificing and courageous efforts I
against overwhelming odds to still '
higher exalt the standard of the!
TJnion, with not a stripe erased ?nd
not a star obscured. As said Na?
poleon to tho French people at the
dawn of disaster to his army, before
allied hosts on tho bloody field of
Dresden, "Let all that love me fol?
low me; so let all the people of this
country who admire and confide in
Andrew Johnson, who stand fast by
! his policy and principles, "strike the |
resounding shields of departed pa?
triots,'' and rally in serried ranks)
against the worst form of hostility to
constitutional government that has |
ever yet developed itself in Ameri?
The friends of the President are j
still in the full faith that the niasses I
of the }>eople do now, as they did at j
the opening of the session of Cou- j
gross, approve of his course and his I
policy as to the rehabilitation of the j
late rebel States, and their represen?
tation by loyal men in Congress, and J
as did the Governors of States, as.
auuounced by thc approving organ
of thc central directory of tho revo- !
lutionista of Congress, just precedent ;
to its assembling in December.
The day nor the hour lias not been,
when the friends of the President j
have not held in proper horror the j
conspiracy that was secretly and fur?
tively formed to beat back tho ad?
vancing waves of popular apprecia?
tion of the policy developed in his
message to Congress. The day nor
the hour has not been that they have
I not detested the secret machinations
J of a star-chainljer directory over Con
grcss, in contempt of the Constitu
] tion and the law. They have success
I fully resisted the sum of all villainies
! in unjust legislation, os originally
! presented iu the monstrous inenba- !
tion of the Congressional eonclave.
I They now resist it in that modified j
form which was made the subject of
j Executive protest but two or three j ;
j days sine?;. We need not now repeat i
I that compact argument against ob- |:
! vious wrong, any more than wo need :1
! repeat, in this article, the grand prin- '
! ciples thal are expressed in thc ad- j
dress that, to-day, graces our co?
lint through seven tedious, anxious, ! :
liarassing months, the friends of the
President and his policy have fore
borne, hesitated, expostulated, and:
protested against the disunionists in '
Congress, in the hope that right
counsels might at hist rule the hour,
and that the loyal representatives ;
from tho South might be admitted to 1
thc Moor of Congress, lint this spirit ;
of uuselfi-di and patriotic desire for i
harmony has been met only by a!
: more indurated resistance, though j
' clothed in more deceptive forms, to j
mask its fell intention to forever re- j
.duce the people of eleven States of I
> the X?hion to thc condition of colo-,
nists, to bc controlled by military sa-!
trapies a form of ride which, in the i
end, would, as all history teaches, j
precipitate a heritage ol' woe upon j
the entire American people.
lint the qualities of patience and
forbearance arc completely exhaust- !
ed. Time only remains for a popular
rally around the President as the un- |
daunted standard-bearer of the con- ;
stitutional union of the States. There
is scarcely a position of the address ;
calling a National Convention of the 1
Unionists of the country that has not
been announced, supported and de- :
fended in the columns of tho National j
I intelligencer. To their support we
[pledge "hand-work, heart-work and
head-work."' Unquestionably, a ma?
jority of the people of tho North are
friendly to the principles enunciated,
! and an opportunity is now presented
! of united action upon an issue of nll
sorbing; interest and most grave im-j
portaneo. To effect the desired ob?
ject of success al the polls in the
,. coming autumn, past and effete issues
and names should be sunk from sight,
and the vital one of exigent moment
be written ou all hearts in lines of
, living light.

police, and th*; discharged colored
soldiers. The civil authorities took
no official action in the matter what
ever. The City Recorder made a
speech to the mob. urging them t?T>
kill the eutire nigger race and burn
up the cradle. The quarters of Gen.
Runkle were also threatened with de?
struction. Three negro churches,
eight school-houses-five of which
bclongad to the United States-and
about fifty private dwellings, occu?
pied exclusively by negroes, wore
burned. The loss to the Government
anti to the negroes will foot up JtW.
300, and probably much higher.
It is stated by prominent Senators
in Washington that Mr. Seward bas
concluded a secret treaty with jSapo
loou, by which tho United States is
debarred from interfering with th?
movement of the foreign troops now
supporting Maximilian. After the
withdrawal of the French, Maximi?
lian, it is understood, will offer him?
self as a candidate for the Presidency
of the Mexican Republic. Having
secured that position, he is to take
advantage of any small revolution, of
which Mexico affords so many, and
declare himself Emperor, thereby
Hanking the Monroe doctriue and
having a tinner imperial throne than
at present. It is probable the Senate
will solicit information from Mr. Se?
ward concerning this little game.
