PHILADELPHIA, September 7.-There was
an exciting debate in the Radical Conven?

Committee on the Reconstructed States.
There were scenes of tho wildest excite?

Many of tho delegates left this morning,
leaving the Convention almost entirely in

The Committee on Address were almost
unanimous against negro suffrage; whilst

were in favor of negro suffrage were invited
to step to the Secretary's desk and sign

adopted in favor of a subscription for the
publication of tho proceedings; of sympa?

The Burning vf Columbia.
LETTER FROM BON. ALFRED HUGER
ELOQUENT AND DESERVED TRIBUTE
TO THE NOBLE HAMPTON.
CHARLESTON, S. C., Aug. 22, '66.
To the Editor of the World.
SIR: I most unwillingly leave th?
retirement and obscurity which old
age and circumstances have provided;
but a remark in your paper of ' the
13th seems to demand it. A writer,
signed "S," replying to an article in
Harper's Magazine, for August, intro?
duces my name in these words:
4'This must refer to Alfred Huger,
for many years postmaster afc Charles?
ton." &c, &c. I turn to the Maga?
zine, and, to my surprise, find a con?
tributor whose purpose and motive it
is not my business to define, making
capital out of so barren a subject as
myself. Beginning with the "Burn?
ing of Columbia," and the abuse of
Gen. Hampton, he says: "Among
others to whom I was sent to give as?
sistance, was Mr. Huger, a well
known citizen of South Carolina,"
and then recounts an elaborate con?
versation about a band of thieves,
calling themselves Wheeler's cavalry,
&c., and in another part of his narra?
tive writes: "When tho citizens of
Columbia begin their investigations
of tho burning of that city, and the
pillaging of houses and robbing of
citizens, let them not forget to take
the evidence of Mr. Huger." I am
thus put on tho stand without being
consulted, and shall commence by
saying that if this individual or any
other was ever "sent" to my ".assist?
ance," the mission has been strangely
disregarded. I never saw any such
person as he claims to be, though I
was au eye-witness to the burning of
j Columbia. I never had any such in
I tercourse with any human being in
Gen. Sherman's army, or out of it;
? and if investigations are made, and
the evidence of Mr. Huger is called
for, I shall, with a deep consciousness
of what is duo to truth, say that,
before Almighty God, all that I saw,
I all that I .heard, all that I suffered,
all that I believe, is in direct opposi?
tion to what is affirmed by the writer
for Harper's Magazine, and for which
he quotes Mr. linger as a portion of
Miis authority; and I ask leave to add,
I after maturely reflecting upon the
j events of that fearful night, when
every feeling of humanity seemed to
be obliterated, if my "well being"
here and hereafter depended on the
accuracy of my statement, I would
say that the precision, order, method,
and discipline which prevailed from
the entrance of the Federal army tc
its departure, could only emanate
from military authority.
How could I come to any otha
conclusion, with the fact, regard?e
I as indisputable, that the city wai
doomed before it was taken? and that
as tho tragedy progressed, everybody
saw the programme carried out, a
they had previously expected? or hov
am I to believe my own senses whei
an individual, pretending to bo ai
officer, talks of burning tho city
pillaging houses, robbing citizens
&c., as if "these" were unfoundet
charges? Why, sir, I never suppos?e
I was dealt with more hardly thai
others, because I know that th
"plunder" was universal. Yet Mr
Huger, who is to bear witness fo
one who was sent to assist him, nov
declares "that he was merciless],
robbed; that his person was ruth
lessly violated ; that food wns takei
away from his orphan children, an>
that bis family were brutally insult
ed by well-mounted and well-armei
men in the uniform of the Uuitei
States!" For aught I know, it ma
be usual or even necesssary to gran
this license; while the denial is equal!
absurd and wicked, and the attemp
to implicate other people is tho coi:
summation of both! But this is th
end that such things come to, an
the natural consequence of cullin
witnesses to prove what the witnesse
themselves knew to be false. I sa1
those who were apparently plyin
their vocation deliberately set lire t
houses, carrying with them combiii
tibie preparations for doing so. C
j the effort made to prevent them I sa
nothing, because I saw nothing. 3
It gratifies me, however, to relat
this instance of kindness. My owi
house was about to bo destroyed b
tho firing of an adjoining building
There were two Western men lookin
on-soldiers in the true sense of th
word. I asked ono of them-(thei
names were Elliott and Goodmai
one from Indiana, the other froi
Iowa,) "Have you a family u
home?"' He answered "Yes." I sai
to him, "My family are ill in th?
room; have you no thought of you
own?" The man showed that he hn
a heart, and as the incendiary move
off to other objects, ho did assist mi
without being "sent," and, with ni
servants and tho only child I had bi
enough to "hand a bucket," we save
tho house, with its helpless inmate
thanks to this Good Samaritan.
My conviction is that Columbia w:
cruelly and uselessly sacked and buri
ed, without resistance, after being i
complete possession of Gen. She
man's army ; but who gave tho ' 'ordei
to apply tho torch, is not for tho vi
tims either to know or locare. Hm
dreds of helpless women andchildrc
were turned out to their fate, lt
tho historian's business to lind ev
dence to meet the case, not mine, ni
my voice would nev?r have been hem
had I not been unjustly dragged b
fore the public. Tho truth, and tl
whole truth, will probably never a
pear; but it is "reeorded in the hie
chancery of Heaven, where no hu?
man power can make the erasure.""
Mr. Editor, I crave your patience a
little longer, and beg your attention
to the first sentence in the article of
which I complain. It reads thus : . 'If
Mr. Wade Hampton is anxious to add
a deeper shame to a dishonored
name, he has attained that end by
his renewed attempts to hold Gen.
Sherman responsible for the burning
of Columbia and its terrible conse?
quences," &c. Now, sir, I speak for
every honest man between the moun?
tains and the sea-coast, and between
the Savannah Eiver and the Pee Dee,
when I say, "II this opinion and this
epithet are not equally revolting and
insulting, then the common sensibili?
ties of nature are made extinct by the
sufferings we have endured." If
"Hampton" is a "dishonored name,"
there is none within the limits of this
down-trodden and persecuted State
that can be considered as unsullied.
Here in South Carolina, and through?
out the South, every human being
feels that where the name of Hamp?
ton is best known it is most revered,
and he who bears it is the most be?
loved. Before the present incumbent
saw the light, that name was identi?
fied with all that is brave, and honor?
able, and generous. What a noble
sire (who emphatically and habitually
"did the honors" of his native State)
ha3 left impressed upon the hearts of
his countrymen as a legacy to his
children, thia slandered Mr. Wade
Hampton, late Lieutenant-General of
the Confederate army, will transmit
to another generation bright and un?
tarnished. If there is one among us
more cherished than the rest, it is he
upon whom this gratuitous assault is
so brutally, and yet so feebly, made.
And if to-day or to-morrow a canvass
should be opened for our "represen?
tative man," to fill tho highest office
in the gift of a heart-broken but
grateful people, none could be found
strong enough to compete with him
for their favor. And it would be
untrue to the living and the dead if
such were not the unanimous deci?
I have said that the historian must
find evidence as to the burning of
Columbia, and he will find it. The j
foolish attempt to hold Hampton re- !
sponsible is beyond the tether of his
last calumniator, *aud is hardly worthy
of a serious refutation. These few
questions, when they are asked, will
be found difficult to answer. Where
was Hampton, when the conflagra?
tion began to take its regular course,
at S o'clock at night? Did tho cotton
which was burning at the East end
of Main street travel against a gale of
wind to the extreme West, more than
a milo off? Was it not there aud then
that wo were called on to perceive
that our doom was sealed? Why talk
of putting out the fire in a church?
yard, when it is notorious that the sac?
ramental silver belonging to the altar
was stolen, and I think subsequently
given up? Did Hampton burn the
country-seats surrounding Columbia,
leaving his kith and kindred without
a shelter? Did he burn every farm
house on the way-side and away from
tho way-side-every grist mill and
flour mill? Did he burn Camden,
aud Winnsboro, and Cheraw? Was
the quantity of silver plato taken from
the citizens of Columbia sold for
Hampton's benefit in Now York and
elsewhere? Is it tho necessary pro?
vince of war to obliterate all mercy
and all shame? But enough. When
tho Searcher of Hearts commences
his "investigations," Hampton will
be found entrenched by truth-sur?
rounded by that strength which
"prosperity and victory" cannot give,
and which "adversity and malignity"
cannot take away.
' Mr. Editor, we are doing our best,
with Heaven's help, to have a country
once more. North, South, East and
West are. enlisted in this holy enter?
prise. All have joined hands in this
sacred work, and a Chief Magistrate,
distinguished for bis high sense of
duty, aud for his inflexible courage
j in its performance,* wisely tells us, "if
we cannot forget tho past, we can
never have a future;" and standing as
I do, almost in sight of tho grave,
among the oldest meu in the Stato
that gave me birth, I will say "amen"
to their sentiment. Lot tho past bo
forgotten, if such is possible; at any
rate, let it not be referred to, if the
object is "peace" and tho "hope" is
in the future.
I am, very respectfully, your obe?
Every successful movement upon

Butler and Schenck try their hands
at Pittsburg. Tho President, sup?
ported on the right and left by Grant
and Farragut, having commenced a
most successful tour, wo think that
Thaddeus Stevens, accompanied by
Forney and Inquisitor Miles, should
