Sooth Carolina. Unionism.
A Mr. Sidney Andrews, one o_f thoso.
peripatetic scribblers from New Eng?
land, has spent fourteen weeks in the
South, and Ticknor & Fields, of Bos?
ton, have dono np -what he has to say
in a volume entitled "The South
since the War." Fourteen weeks
among the ruins of tho South to
write a book, giving an accurate
statement of the political feeling of
her people! He calls North Carolina
Unionism "a cheat, a will-o'-the
wisp," and says "any man who trusts
it will meet with an overthrow."
That of Georgia ho calls "a sham
Unionism," but "a cold toleration
* for the idea of national sovereignty."
He pays his respects to South Caro?
lina os follows:
"In South Carolina, there is very
little pretense of love for the Union,
but everywhere a passionate devotion
to the State; and the common senti?
ment holds that man guilty of trea?
son who prefers the United States to
South Carolina. There is nor occa?
sion to wonder at the admiration of
the people for Wade Hampton, for
he is the very exemplar of their spi?
rit-of their proud and narrow aud
domineering spirit. . It is our
duty,' ho says, in a lettor which he
ha? recently addressed to the people
of the State, 'it is our duty to sup?
port -the- President of the United
States so long as he manifests a dis?
position to restore our rights as a
sovereign State.' That sentence will
forever stand as a model of cool arro
gan ce, and yet it is in full accord
with the spirit of South Carolinians.
The war has taught them that the
physical force of the nation cannot
be resisted, and they will be obedient
to the letter of the law; but the whole
current of their lives flows in direct
antagonism to its spirit."
Tho people of South Carolina do
entertain a passionate devotion to
their State, and we honor them for it;
it is their highest badge of honor,
their proudest characteristic, and wo
be to them when they fall from grace
in this respect, and become like the
migratory Scribes and Pharisees who
hail from "the hub," and whose
home is vherever the dollars are
made most easily, and whoso affec?
tions centre only where that load?
stone of attraction is found. No love
of home, no State pride, but an arro?
gant assumption of super-excellence
for the Puritan race and their de?
scendants, ever enter into tho sterile
hearts of these roving scribblers, Sc
strictly Puritan are they that thej
will whip their childron to death ii
they do not rhyme out with the true
Puritanic nasal twang, their set rou
tine of meaningless word-prayer.
It is a union with these people thai
tho native-born Southerners feel i
repugnance to-and they have gooc
cause for such dislike. For a quarte]
of a century they have been the mar
plots of the peace of the country
they have meddled with everything
pertaining to society, manners, politi
cal institutions and social relations, ii
communities which never could com
mingle with them, or assimilate them
selves to their standard of religiou
or civil duties. The two peoples ar<
as far removed in these respects fron
each other ns are the antipodes, and
iu all probability, throughout tim
will remain so.
But when theso mendacious writer
confound our aversion to them or
union with them, with a repugnanc
to the institutions of our Govern
ment-when, because we will nc
?unbrace them and their politics
tenets, their spurious morality, thei
rampant radicalism and all the otho
isms generated on New Euglaud so
-they undertake to class the peopl
of these States as unfriendly to th
Constitution and the Government <
the United States, then do they eith<
wilfully malign us, or they have n(
sense enough to discriminate betwee
true patriotism and a mouthing Unioi
ism, such as is indulged in by Brow]
low, and was tho wont among tho o!
regime of Faneuil Hall ranters.
freely admit that South Carol?
Unionism is not of that stamp, ari
we hope never will be. They ha1
not consented that the term "Uuioi
ism" should take the place of "p
triotism" in its broadest and wide
sense-a devotion to the Constitute
of the United States, and an earuo
support of the Government fraim
upou its principles, and this is tl
only trna Unionism, by and throuj
which the Government can be perj
Gen. Hampton is tho South Cai
lina type of that kind of Unionism
bravo in war, noble in defeat, and
accepting with*.?bat -?el?-respect ?ml
dignity which trne nxanhood fur?
nishes to it? possessor, tho results of
the contest in which he -was an active
participant^-wX?n SS> in tho above,
quoted sentence, uttered tho senti?
ment of a true patriot and that of the
whole peoplo of this State. And
herein lies the secret of tho asper?
sions ?nd misrepresentations of these
writers-our support of tho President
in his conflict with radicalism, alias
New EtfgTand Unionism.
The putting down of this horde of
scribblers, who write books and fill
the newspapers ol New England and
the North with tho greatest misrep?
resentations of the Southern people
in everything, would don tribut? largely
and effectually to tho restoration of
peace and harmony. If, in the mean?
time, the peoplo of tho North desire
to know tho representative men of
Southern Unionism, they will find
them among thc delegates from this
section to tho Philadelphia Conven?
TI10 City of Baltimore.
The people of tho Southern States
cannot soon forget Baltimore and her
magnificent charities to the poor and
destitute of tho stricken States South
of her, and our pople feel grateful to
her noble women for the er-Tgy aud
I self-sacrifice they displayed in suc?
cessfully carrying out their noble en
' terprise. It was a work of benevo?
lence that will long live in tho hearts
and affections of the peoplo of thc
South. It has formed a new bond ol
union and fraternal feeling betweer
Maryland and her Southern sisters
j which we hope will become strongei
as their people become more inti
Wo have before ns a copy <^f f
publication-the Baltimore Traders
Gazette-well filled with advertise
ments, indicating a foll stock of mer
chandize in every department in bu
siness, aud suggesting to our mind:
the inquiry, why could not Balti
more, within the boundaries of on:
own section, with direct Europeai
connections, with her lines of steam
ers and railways to every sea-port
and almost every important commer
cial city of the South, become th
commercial emporium of tho South
With all her advantages, thoro can b
no reason why her merchants shouh
not be able, to command tho large
portion of tho Southern trade am
compete successfully with her large
rivals, New York, Boston and Philr
delphia. She is nearer to the Soutl:
ern merchant; railroad and stean
boat facilities are abundant for ht
and her people; our sympathies au
affections have become strengthenec
and, with a thorough organization c
commercial capital in that centre, au
tho hearty co-operation of Souther
merchants, Baltimore can beconi
what she out to bo-tho great in
porting warehouse for tho Souther
Let the merchants of Baltimore g
to work in earnest, lay in large stocl
of staple goods and useful artich
adapted to the wants of the Southei
people; let them import all that tin
can, so that they can compete wit
tho importing cities above-name'
For the present, we can do with
small amount of the wares and me
chandize that can usually be found
Stewart's, of New York, or Levy's,
Philadelphia; and we feel confideii
if her merchants present to buyers
moderate rates, fair stocks of artiol
of prime necessity-food, cloth: n
agricultural implements, meehans
.tools and machinery, &c, Ac.-th
will shortly be able to check tho pr
gress of our merchants Eastwar
Let them advertise freely in eve
city in the Southern States, and sin
that spirit of liberality for whi
they have always been cbaraci
ized-in short, let them show to t
Southern trader that they are
earnest to secure tho business fl
has always flowed past them, a
success will crown their efforts.
THE CONVENTION.-A special <
spatch to tho Charleston Couri
from Washington, says:
Tho President i& greatly enc<
raged at the accounts which he !
Gov. Orr's speech of last night
highly commended on all sidos.
Leading radicals here freely adi
to-day that they expect to lind

Cholerais now very prevalent
the Danubian principalities, espec
ly at .Tassy.
We cannot say that wa very much
admire the opening scene Of this en?
tertainment, although at this distance,
and with only a brief telegram de?
scribing it, we may not be quite com?
petent to judge of its entire- pro?
priety; but for the lifo of ns, we
cannot seo the fitness of things, on
the assembling of this grave, delibe?
rative body, that the representatives of
South Carolina aud Massachusetts
Gov. Orr and a lato major-general of
the United States army-should be
chosen to make the "grand entree,"
arm in arm, keeping stop with the
music, and preceded by banners-wo
suppose the respective emblems of
the Palmetto and . Bay States. Wo
say nothing against it, but a doubt of
its propriety; and who knows but
that the whole thiug may turn out to
have been pr?mature. The scenic
effect was moving, no doubt, and had
we beeu present, wo might have also
shed tears, on seeing the representa?
tives of these two States-moro an?
tagonistic in politics than any other
two in the Uniou-make this frater?
nal exhibition after four yours strife
but we confess that wo are uot yet so
far reconstructed, as not to have pre?
ferred somo other arrangement iu the
programme. And having said this
much about the incident, we sincerely
hope it will have all the good effect
intended by its originators, wdioefVer
The tone and temper of the Cou
veution, and the manifest desire for
harmony, as our telegrams inform
us, aro indicative of good results.
The course of Messrs. Wood and Val
laudigham is worthy of commenda?
tion, aud cannot fail to exercise a
good influence over tho sitting mem?
bers and oil their deliberations. The
brief reports of tho speeches we have
received also poiut to conciliatory
action, aud foreshadow a harmonious
session. The. good and true men ot
our land are there-all professedly
actuated by thu same motive, and as?
sembled for the same object-thc
speedy restoration of peace to the
country, and its reconstruction or
sound principles; and if such a bodj
fails to accomplish so desirable ai
end, we may look in vain for anj
other instrumentality to effect it
We sincerely pray that tho hope:
of tho country in this respect are nol
doomed to disappointment.
A Kori-igncr'* Opinion.
A writer in Blackwood's Magazine
in noticing tho political situation ir
this country, thus classifies parties:
"At the present stage of the con
flict," says he, "with the Congres
and the fanatics, philosophers, revc
lutionists ami centralizers of th
North and East on ono side, Mi
Johnson, the South, and tho conserv
atives of the North and West upo:
the other, it is us impossible, us i
would be idle to predict which wa;
the battle will turn."
The classification is correct, an
his doubts as to the result of th
contest now going <>n betwee
tho radicals and tho friends of con
stitutional Government, uro naturi
enough to a journalist so far distan
from the conflict aud the many phase
jit may assume. The writer sa)
"If Mr. Johnson carries the da?
supported by tho people at tho N<
vember elections, the Union is prai
ticable, and the United States mc
become what the great majority ?
the English people, and all tho tri
friends of humanity, desire them 1
be-happy, respectable, prospcroi
The unchecked rule-of radicalis
would just place tho United States :
the opposite position to that nunn
above. Wo have sufficient faith
tho good sense, virtue and patrio
ism of the American people to belie
: that Mr. Johnson will "e'arry tl
! day," and that the country will 1

We baye again rumors of the fail?
ing health of the prisoner of For?
trosa Monroe, and they are eon
firmed by a letter from his wife to a
gentleman of this State, in which
that stricken but devoted woman
says: "Mr. Davis is not slowly, but
surely, wasting away, and I look for?
ward to his Maker's release, if man
does not soon afford him one."
The civilized world stands amazed
at the treatment Jefferson Davis has
'received, and is still receiving,' af the
hands of a great nation. From him
the (lovernment has surely nothing
to fear. Ho is wearing away, and is
too feeble, were he inclined, to give
any one much trouble in this world,

tho close of the war, when passion,
engendered by sectional strife, was in
the asceudant, and when* ho was
charged with somo complicity in the
death of Mr. Lincoln, there might
have been some shadow of excuso
for rigid immurement in the walls of
a fortress; but all such pretext has
long passed away; the most searching
investigation of his bitterest enemies
has utterly failed to find the slightest
stain of guilt on him as to the unfor?
tunate assassination of the late Pre
sident; and as to tho charge of treu
son, we feel assured that there is not
one of the thousands who have re?
ceived tho sign-manual of pardoi
from President Johnson, but who wai
as guilty as he of the alleged crime.
"His Maker's release." What doe
