Friday Morning, September 21,1866.
War is a great leveller of social dis?
tinctions, iu tho communities suffer?
ing from the losses aud deprivations
where it has spent its fury and where
its ravages were most destructive.
This lias been strikingly illustrated in
' the South daring the past eighteen
months. Men who have been, in
times past, large landed proprietors,
with their overseers and h rt laired s of
laborers ; men also, who had held high
positions in society before the war,
may now be seen honestly and honor?
ably accepting the loss of their pro?
perty and engaging in laborious in?
dustry-the former holding their
own ploughs, and the latter sedu?
lously engaged in callings, which, in
former times, would probably have
been nearly considered menial, or, at
least, below their stations in life.
But this honorable acceptance of
an altered condition is not confined
to the male portion of. the popula?
tion. Southern women, upon whom
it might bo supposed these reverses
of fortune would have fallen most
heavily, have been among tho fore?
most in accepting thc new order of
things, and have amply refuted, by
their conduct, Hie oft-repeated slan?
ders of the enemies of their section,
that they wero indolent and extrava?
gant. It is not only in the instances
of the noble wives of Gener?is Folk,
of Tennessee, and Hansom, of North
Carolina, that we find these splendid
illustrations of true womanhood under
adversity; they may bc seen in other
and humbler walks of life, where ai j
honestly-gained competency once af
forded at least a life of comfort; there
may be ;?een diligent fingers, plying
the needle, to aid in support of fami?
lies. All such instances reflect tho
highest credit upon a people over?
whelmed and bowed down under tho
crashing calamities of war.
But we regret to say that there are
exceptions lo this general rule. The
New Orleans Delta, in citing some of
the more prominent men and women
who have gone to work with a will
if not wholly able to retrieve tl rei r
broken fortunes, at least to maintain
themselves and families-says, and,
unfortunately, too truly:
' 'Still there are many-we wish the
number were less-who, from lack of
talent, or energy, show that the
wealth that has passed from their
families has passed never to return.
We think we could point to more
than one young man of superior edu?
cation, and perhaps of superior busi?
ness qualifications, who yet live along
nobody knows how, and obtain then
supplies nobody knows where; who
have made up their mind to he any?
thing, dy anything, rather than.hard
labor, and who are much more fami?
liar with bar-rooms and the rendez?
vous of the idle than with places of
This is too true. Such idlers are
not willing to labor at callings which
they regard degrading-that is, at
hard, downright toil ; and unless there
is a reformation wrought amongst
this class, or until they die out or
sink from the knowledge of their
former friends by their indolence and
. vice, they will feel that they are jus?
tified in resorting to any shifts to
escape this fancied degradation.
But the instincts of patriotism, as
weil as the considerations of indivi
nual self-respect, should effect a
wholesome change in this respect.
Young men who fought gallantly on
many a battle-field, in defence of
the rights, as they conceived them,
of their section, should learn that, on
the grounding of their weapons of
warfare, they were transferred to an?
other battle-fieid, in which their con?
duct os much effects the welfare and
interests of that section as it did amid
the clash of arms. Young women who,
patriotically disposed during tho war,
diligently plied the needle in making
up clothing for the brave men in the
field, or who ministered to the suffer?
ings in the hospitals of the South,
should understand that their labors
for that South did not cease with the
downfall of her cause.
The truth is, the Routh must ra?
pidly recuperate, or her people will
sink into a state of vassalage to those
whom heretofore they affected to
sneer at for their keenness in busi?
ness, or their tact in acquiring wealth.
The resources of the South aro toe
rich and attractive to be passed by,
and if her own people do not go tc
work to develop them, others-will,
and they will bo ovated. The greai
wc rk of recuperation for her deinamh
the active brain, the determined will,
and the willing hand of toil of every
son and daughter within her limits;
but if, through indolence, or a?erimi
nal neglect of the plainest duties,
they refuse to givo theso to savo her
and themselves, while she will be re?
cuperated and again become- prosper?
ous by means of foreign agencies,
they will find themselves in a much
more ignoble condition than that to
which their fancied degradation could
ever reduce tl icm.
Thc Bureau In Texas*
It has been noticed some time ago
that the editor of the Brenham
(Texas) Banner hud been imprisoned
by order of one of the agents of the
Freedmen's Bureau, for rebuking the
misconduct of one of the attaches of
that institution -a teacher of one of
the colored schools. Air. McGary,
the editor, refused to pay a fine of
$250; imposed, as he thought, unjust?
ly, for writing a deserved (.ensure.
Not paying, he wis imprisoned; but
at the end of three weeks, by the in?
terposition of Gov. Throckmortou,
he was released. In the next, issue of
his paper, there appeared at the head
of his cola inns ti fourth of July can?
non of tho old style, and under it the
following editorial notes of exulta?
"Brilliant victory. Terminatio of
the conflict. Thc Bureau surren?
ders ! ! ! The press victorious. The
Banner still waves."
The conclu dou o f the article under
the above caption was as follows:
"The civil law again asserts its su?
premacy-the citizen once more
breathes an atmosphere of liberty,
and our right to edit a free und inde?
pendent pupor is fully vindicated.
"The 'Brenham Amateurs' are at
the door. Sweet, melodious, elo?
quent music breaks upon the stillness
of our chamber; so turning Craig
and his Bureau over to their natural
reversionary proprietors, the imps of
darkness, we will ?-lose the chapter,
and clasp hands with the kind friends
from whom, for thre<; weeks past, we
have been separated by Federal
guards and the thick walls of a loath?
But now what followed? On the
night of the 8th instant, the doomed
town of Brenham bc;caine a scene ol
conflagration anil bloodshed. Thc
negroes had a dance in town, which
was broken up by some intoxicated
soldiers of the garrison. They then
proceeded to break up a small social
party of citizens in ?mother locality,
and striking several gentlemen witl
loaded sticks or slung-shots. This
affair resulted iu the death of one o!
the assailants. The soldiers returnee
with reinforcements, fired severn
shots in front of tint Banner office,
and wound nj) by breaking into :
store beneath that ellice, and, aftei
plundering the store, tired the build
ing. Tin? Banner office was destroy

Such is the condition of things it
Texas, and it is a sad commentary ot
the assumed validity of two peac<
proclamations ami the "restoration o
civil authority." The matter, it i
presumed, will lie investigated, ant
it is I'o bo hoped tin; guilty partie
may be properly dealt with.

Kiln cut lon of the Freedmen.
We have on several occasions re?
ferred .to this subject. Old prejudices
are difficult to overcome, and these
prejudices in relation to this matter,
have been strengthened iu no small
degree, from the fact that the North?
ern people, under the auspices of the
Government, and the immediate
direction of that incubus, tho Freed?
men's Bureau, established schools for
their wards, putting over them
teachers who maligned and traduced
the Southern people and taught in
some places, insolence and hatred
moro than anything else. On ac?
count of this state of things, tho
Now Orleans Picayune says tho
people felt a strong repugnance to
negro schools and to tho teachers of
such. But reflection has taught the
people in many quarters, t hat so long
as tho negroes are willing to learn,
they will lind teachers, and as the
I'ic,lynne remarks, knowledge will not
make them any the less useful or well
ordered constituents of the. commu?
nity. It is to .lu; interest ol' the
white as well as the black, that they
should receive tho education which
their own means or Hu: liberality of
I others, can fitton! thom. If, thou,
these people ought lo receive suit?
able education for their station ami
usefulness in society, the question is,
who shall teach them? The Colum?

on this subject, and on tiiis latter

The Constitutional Amenilinrnt.
As the Constitutional amendments
adopted at tho last session of tho rump Con?
gress, will undoubtedly be the condition of
tho admission of the Southern States; and
as the New York Herald, and some other
semi-aonservative and soini-cougressional
papers, earnestly urge the ratification of
thia amendment on the Legislatures and
people of tho South, wo take hom an
article in tho Herald its explanation and
comments on its various sections. Will
tho South swallow such a done?
Tho first section of this amendment de?
claros the equality in their civil rights of
all persona^ all colors, born or naturalized
in the Unitoff States and subject to their
jurisdiction. It ?trikes us that as the in?
stitution of African slavery and all its
collateral Securities have boen wiped out
of the Constitution by tho amendment
abolishing slavery tbi.s now amendment, in
its first Beet ion, is only a re-affirmation of
the instrument as ii now statuta; for in
taking out slavery no distinction in rela?
tion to the African race remains in the
Constitution none whatever. Thesecond
section of the new amendment provides
that suffrage and representation shall go
together, and that as the respective States
shall abridge the suffrage tp males ol
twenty-one years in reference to the elec?
tions of Federal and State officers thc enum?
eration of their people for representation
in Congress shall be correspondingly re?
duced. This is a pretty severe teat, as wc
have shown, to South Carolina ; but, or
t he ot her hand, if she can exclude her foul
hundred thousand blacks from suffrage,
and give? toiler three hundred thousaac
whites a representation in Congress o
neveu hundred thousand people, it will bc
pleaded that seven white mon in New Yuri
or any other Northern state arc red ace?
to the level in-Congrcss of three white mei
in South Caroona ; and thus this distinc
tiou, while it lasts, will bo made a therai
of mischievous sectional agitation. Code:

FEVER AND AOVE EXTINGUISHED. Mar?
tyrs t.. intermittent Fever, a word with
you. The responsibility for your suffi ring
rests up .ii yourselves. Just as surely aa
you shake to-day, or will shake to-morrow,
HosTirrrEK's CELEBRATED STOMACH BITTERS
will extinguish the disease under which
you labor. Rad you taken this genial
I?nicas a prevent ive, y on would have no
ne. d of it as a onie; for it renders the sys?
tem impervious lo all miasmatic fevers,
lint since you neglected tin- precaution,
rid yourselves without delay of the oom
plain! by resorting in ile; only reliable
remedy. Rreak the chills with Hostetter's
Ritters, and tin y will return immure. Thia
is the t-xporicucc of thousands, and it will
he yours. Quinine is a slow means of re?
lief; il is nailSCOns to the last degree; it is
more dangerous than the malady itself; in
many eases it utterly fails. How ???tTereiit
is Hu- i flee! of th.- Bitters! Their curative
action is rapid; they ale agreeable to tho
palate; they are not only entirely harm?
less, but tend inevitably to strengthen thc
constitution and'prolong life; they r.ecer
Inn-, ?U-d, and it is confidently assumed
thai they never can fail in any case of
Fever and Ague, however inveterate in its
character. To be without Hueietter's Bit?
ters in any region infested with Intermit?
tent or Remittent Fever, ia simply to reject
safetv ami court disease. Sept Jl f6
