Wim? Darn it Mian!
On-the 18th inst-.. Gai,. Sheridan
issued an order prohibition tho erec?
tion, in his ilivision, of any monu?
ment in memory of the rebellion, or
the formation of companies, batt iv
ries, brigades, Are. On the 19th, ?
telegram informed us ho had recalled
that order, and it was to be prewumed
that ho had received orders to that
effect from Washington; but, 1<>! and
behold! a despatch published yester?
day morning, dated New Orleans,
20th, announces that the Virginia
Valley General liad formally pub?
lished his original order.
People may well ash what does all
thia ceaseless persecution of the
Southern people mean? If ladies
intermingle tiny flags-representing
"the conquered banner"-among
evergreens, as innocent emblems
and mementoes of the cause their
friends and relatives fell in defend?
ing, forthwith a military officer is
sent to investigate whether these
little one or two inch-square emblems
are not freshly-hatched symbols of
another rebellion. Now, by special
order, the pobple of Louisiana are
forbidden to erect monuments, tomb?
stones, ?ic; over the remains of the
gallant dead. They cannot inscribe
on tho marble that my son, brother
or husband fell on such a held in de?
fence of the cause he had espoused ;
tiieso graves nvust remain without
any tablet to their memory, by com?
mand of Qpn. Sheri dan!
What, does it mean? These petty
acts of miEtary officers, intruding
within the sacred precincts of grave?
yards and cemeteries, what do they
mean? God, who searcheth the
hearts of all men, only knows. If
they are merely the acts of men ex?
ercising "a little brief authority,"
they ara only the failings of poor
weak human nature, as they have ap?
peared in every age-if they are in?
tended to "goad tlie people of the
South to "disloyal" (so-called) acts,
they will fail of their intent, because
the peoplo can afford to wait to erect
their tomb-stones and head-boards,
until "the good time coming," with?
out violation of the terms they have
accepted; but, if they are intended
to indicate that the work of subju?
gation is yet incomplete, then are
they nt variance with the avowed
policy of the President for the resto?
ration of unity and peaco to our un?
happy country, and should forthwith
bc* pnt a stop to by his mandate as
Commander-in-chief of the Armies1
of the United States.
DISTURBANCE TN GREENVILLE.-Tho |

red between a citizen and a freedman !
-in which the former received a se- '

and the latter seriously stabbed. At

place shortly afterwards, at which
threats were-made to burn the town. '
if certain requisilions were not com- '
plied with. Several stables and barns, ;
hi tho vicinity of the town, were j
burned, when, at last, the whites ral-1

McQueen, a celebrated stat ic ian.
ita hia account of tho annual .wealth j
and income of England, at the time
ho made up his co rn pend, illustrates |
with greut force what manufactures ;
can do towards the prosperity of a j
country, it appears from his statis- !
tics that the raine of the soil de- ';
voted to agriculture, embraced at
that time twenty-six-forty-thirds of
th? wealth <d* the whole kingdom,
and that its value was twelve*
times greater than all tho capi?
tal invested in manufactures and
commerce- -theselatter, including her
ships, being only one-eighteenth of
her national wealth. The agricultu?
ral capital was ?3,311,000,000, pro?
ducing 13 per cent, profit, while the
manufacturing capital, only ?218. -
000,000, produced 120 per cent,
Comnicutiug upon these facts, tho
New York Tribune says that this little
capital of ?218,000,000 invested in
machinery, mills, furnaces, factories
and mines, has swollen thc farming
capital of little England to the gi?
gantic sum of -?3,311,000,000, and
made a British farm worth ten times
as much as one in wheat-growing Po?
land, which only grows wheat and
buys goods instead of making them.
Our object in bringing these figures
before our readers is to impress them
with the great necessity of embarking
in manufacturing enterprises tis a
powerful agency in the resuscitation
of their fortunes, lu England, the
manufactories have doubled and tre?
bled her population and sustained
her immense commerce. The same
cause eau produce like results at thc
South, yea, to a four-fold degree, be
causo lier soil and climate uro une?
qualled by any country on the face
of the globe. And now, when a new
system of labor has to be introduced,
wlicu hostile legislation is texing bei
raw materials, it is the time, above
all times, to enter upou that new fiele
of enterprise, which will not only
secure the labor she requires, bul
which, in the manufacture and salt
of her own products, will, as if by
magic, restore ber not only to formet
prosperity, but to wealth and great
ness. Tho people of the South shonlc
cousider these things.

Wc find the following paragraph ir
our Northern exchanges:
"Bio PAY.- At the evening sessior
of the United States Senate, on Tues
day, a bill was passed to pay Mrs
Amelia Pheester, of Columbia, Sou tl
Carolina, 810,000 for food and cloth
ing furnished to Union soldiers nn<
officers while in prison at thal pine?
during the war."
The Mrs. Feaster, to whom tin
above item refers, was a resident o
this city until the departure of Gene
ml Sherman's army from its ruin?
which army she uecompaniad. W<
do not know that we have any righ
to grumble at any disposition o

she presented a banner-the first, \v
believe, that was presented to an
rebel corps in this city-to that ga
Iant company, the ''Butler Guards,
from Greenville. There were otlu
small evidences of her loyalty to tl
now "lost cause," but we will n<
mention them. As to her preset

There 1? a Remedy.
Our ruinous condition can bat be
felt seriously and ominously by every
thinking and sympathetic mind of
South Carolina. It matters not, how?
ever, how much wo may lament over
our own ruins, or how much wo may
symiMtthizo with others in like condi?
tion, if we endeavor not to apply
some radical und efficient remedy. I
alindo particularly to tho debts of the
people. Can a remedy, paramount to
the disease, be applied? I answer, it
can be approximated, und only ap?
proximated, and that by a modifica?
tion of nil the debts existing at the
timo of tho surrender. To preserve
justice, honor and honesty-to live
and let live-no other equitable reme?
dy can be applied, in my opinion, but
to modify tho debts as tliey now
staud-being in existence at tho time
of tho surrender-according to thc
assets of the debtors now, compared
with what they were previous to thal
time. Can this bc done legally? 1
answer, it can -cither by the Legisla'
ture, or by tho people, in convention,
through their agents. All tho indi
vidual or private debts might be modi
ried by the parties themselves or b}
arbitration; but all those in the hand:
of executors, administrators, guard
ians or trustees, cannot thus be set
tied; consequently some legislativi
action is absolutely necessary on tin
It is generally known that thc Con
stitution of the United States, an<
that of our own State, forbid any lav
being made impairing tho obligatioi
of contracts. This, I admit, is strict!
true, and should be so in all l>oiui Jul
I and unassailable contracts; but it i
also equally true, that a contract vic
lated on the one part is not bindin,
on the other part, and that souu<
price guarantees sound property, Arc
Now, lam persuaded, and, therefore
maintain, that a very large majorit
of the contracts of our people ar
already virtually violated, on tho on
part, by the lawgiver himself dispo:
Kessin g the obligors in said contrae!
of at least three-fourths of the cons
deration embraced Hierein, and, nls<
of all the rights and titles therount
appertaining-(I allude particular!
to the slave property.) Furthermor?
it is obvious that the obligors in sai
contracts have failed to mnintai
good and valid rights or titles to sai
considerations; consequently the
huve violated the contracts on th
ono part, which, therefore, is an
shall be null and void on the otln
part. :1S far as tue equity of the ca.
can be attained by modifying til
debts that have either directly or it
directly grown out of them. It migl
be urged against a general modifie:
ti on <d' debts, that a great many wei

I would say, if they were, it is wc
known that at least three-fourths <
the debts, especially among farmer
were predicated upon tho slave pn
porty, and to that proportion wei
toe direct, or indirect cans* of tl
debts, and thc best means of gi
ing faith to the creditors, and tl
only reliable means tho debtors lu
to make the money to pay the deb
It is also true that a large majori
of the money thus loaued was only
transmutation of the negro from tl
field or house to the pocket Cons
qaently, equity can be approximate
in the great confusion of things, mo
closely than any other way, for t!
people, through their agents, to d
?.larc null and void the .same prop?
tion of tho dues to the creditors
has already been sustained by tl
debtor.;, in being dispossessed

Their rights in tho contract II
grave, but if tho one was good, t
other was equally good; the Crover
ment that protects the one must ?
fend tho other; if tho law annuls ?
one, it must make null and void t
other. The creditors may argue th
are nul accountable, not being al
to prevent ; they were forced to si
mit to tho violation of the contri
on their part This is certainly tri
but at tho same time ?loes not mi
gate the evils of the. breach in its
fects on the debtors; it does not. pr
tiddly or equitably alter the ease 1
tween tho parties. Neither is
pertinent to a true solution of t
case whether the Government 1
done right or done wrong. It i
fixed fact, and it necessarily folio
in truth and justice, that the sa
Government- -or the people, throi
their agents - are fully competent, :
are morally bound in equity, to
just the whole matter between
parties, by making what is consido
by sumo only a just and moral o'
gation on tho part of tb? credit
; an unmistakable legal necessity; ?
in doing so, no further break in
contracts need be made than reas
justice and honesty will dictate tc
It may be further argued by s<
that the debtors iu this case siam'
the same unfortunate condition a
the consideration had been remo
by death or accident : when, indi
! there is no analogy only in the sin
j fact, that in either caso they are
? possessed of the property. In
! first case, something has transp
tiley did not contemplate; neither had
they any right or just canse to expect
or to fear euch a thing, because both
tho creditors and the laws of their
country guaranteed them against such
a contingency; but, in the socoud
case, thoy would have no guarantee.
They would expect, anti ere wo know,
such a contingency, sooner or later,
would happen; it would bo altogether
a matter of speculation-a good bar?
gain or abad one, according to the lifo
ti me of the property; in the first case,
there is not only a guarnntee-an in?
surance-making tho party reapousi
bli', cither by restoration, compensa
tion, or making null and void th?
obligations; but. in the second cane
there would be not only no guarantee
but no looked for remedy, cither pre
sent or prospective; in the first case
there is a breat h of faith-a violatior
of a solemn contract; but, in tin
second case, there would be no bread
of faith br contract; nothing aiinph
but ii misfortune, which, at sonn
time, was inevitable; therefore, then
is no parallel in the two cases. How
ever, to have met the case fully an?
rightfully, mid to have obviated al
doubts ?md ambiguity on the subject
the Government, inasmuch as it ha
exercised thc right to dispossess u
of the negro property, without corn
pensation, should also have exorcisei
the right, by declaring, in the (Jon
stitution, that, all the debts predi
cated upon said property, to be uni
and void, in some certain and prc
purtionate degree. Such a provisio
might, if necessary, be yet engrafte
in the Constitution. It would b

edited by John Esten Cooke, author of the
"Virginia Comedians," from manuscripts
furnished by Colonel Surry, of General

pictures of Southern heroes, who.-e name a
ar.- immortal; faithful delineations of the
characteristics of Lee, the "Stonewall,"
otnart, Ashby, "O?d Jubal," the gallant
blue-eyed boy Pelham, and other '?ravo
cavaliers. Incidents bringing into view
their fine points and striking peculiarities
are irraphically related, r,.d artistically in- .
ti rwoven with the thread of a most roman?
tic story. The "little blossom" of "the
Oaks" blooms into thc queenly rose of
"Eagle's Nest;" thc fair curls of sweet Vi?

through the war-clouds, like moonlight
