Thursday Morning, Sept. 27,1866.
The result in Maine aud Vermont,
and, perhaps, the defection of the
Herald and the modified tone of Ray?
mond's paper, and, above all, the
desire of tho Republican party, we
presume, have induced some letter
writers to start sundry paragraphs on
the rounds of the press to the effect
that the President would modify his
past policy so as to make it more ac?
ceptable to the radicals of the North.
Had wo no other evidence that these
reports were false, the reply of Pre?
sident Johnson to the committee from
the Cleveland Convention, the pur?
port of which was published in yes?
terday morning's telegrams, that
would be sufficient. He there avows
that there will be no change in his
policy, and that he will continue to
labor as he has done for the complete
restoration of the Union. The Wash?
ington correspondent of the Cincin?
nati Gazette, among others, says that
an effort is being made by a combi?
nation of Democrats and Johnson
Republicans to induce the President
to modify his policy, and that Thur?
low Weed and other leading politi?
cians have been consulting recently
with the President, and urged him to
accept the constitutional amendment
and come ont in favor of its adop?
They maj' have done so, but, if our
despatches be correct, they have
failed. We have no idea, and his
whole course as President forbids
such a conclusion, that Andrew John?
son will bargain or compromise with
trading politicians, or yield to the
apprehensions of timid friends. Hav?
ing placed himself upon the Consti?
tution, and based his "policy" upon
that high ground, he will not allow
either to be removed from that sure
basis by ?ill the efforts of designing
and plotting politicians. He has
acted cautiously and with great de?
liberation, yet there has been evinced
no symptom of giving way, or swerv?
ing from ihe straight line of duty he
laid out for himself at tho beginning
of this conflict between him and Con?
As to the constitutional amend?
ment desired to be forced on the
President, it is too short a time since
lie wrote up and recorded his solemn
protest against it, aud he has affirmed
all he said in that document, in all
the speeches-and they have not been
few in number-which he has since
made. Shuffliug or timid politicians
will find neither tool nor supporter in
ANTIETAM NATIONAL CEMETERY
"LEE'S ROCK."-A meeting of the
Trustees of the Antietam National
Cemetery was held in Baltimore, last
Thursday, to adopt plans for laying
off, fencing aud ornamenting said
cemetery. The only point of interest
to us in this meeting was in reference
to a rock in the cemetery grounds
known as "Lee's Rock," from the
fact that Gen. R. E. Lee stood upon
it for a time during the battle of An?
tietam, or, as -we call it, Sharpsburg.
At a previous meeting, the Board had
decreed that this rock should be
taken up and removed. At the meet?
ing on "Thursday, it was moved to re?
consider this decree, and retain the
rock. The motion was opposed, upon
the ground that, to leave the rock,
was to erect a monument to Gen.
Lee. The motion, however, prevail?
ed, and it was determined to retain
and preserve the rock as a feature of

MAJOR-GENERAL. JOHN E. WOOL.
Tn the remarks made by General
Wool, at the opening of the Soldiers'
and Sailors* Convention, thopassages
below occur. He was speaking of tho
' radical partisans who aro seeking an?
other war of blood and dissolution,
"If they should succeed in inflict?
ing on the country another war, it
would be more terrible than the one
from which wo have just emerged.
It could not be confined to the South?
ern States, but extend itself over the
length and breadth of the United
States, and only close with the over?
throw of the best Government, and
destruction of the finest country on
the face of the globe.
"If such should be the fate of our
great republican empire, the cause
must not be sought for in tho mili?
tary camps, but in the forum,
thronged with inflammatory orators
and aspiring demagogues' with souls
dead to their country's honor, and
spotted with corruption."
"We know of no incident more
strikingly illustrative of the differ?
ence between the truly bravo men
who fought during the late civil war,
and the speculators who stayed at
borne during the same time, than
the interchange of despatches be?
tween General Forrest and other
officers of tbe late Confederate army
and the United States officers present
at the Cleveland Convention. The
declaration of General Forrest, that
they were williug to leave their rights
as citizens of the United States to the
soldiers of the Union, produced a
profound sensation in tho Conven?
tion, and elicited a fitting reply, with
three cheers for General Forrest and
bis brother officers.
Tbese are courtesies between brave
men, which, by contrast, render
darker and more execrable tho mise?
rable efforts of those .who would, if
in tbeir power, plunge the country
into another civil war. These brave
men know enough of war, with its
attendant horrors, and they do not
wish to renew a strife that, it is to be
hoped, bas ended forever. The men
who fought for tbe preservation of
the Union are as willing to trust tho
honor and sincerity of the Southern,
people as the latter aro to trust the
determination of their rights to the
Union soldier?. These latter know
the gallantry and bigb bearing of the
defeated Confederates, and they know
that they have neither the disposi?
tion or the means to renew tho con?
flict; besides, they know them to be
honorable men, and that the terms
of their parole would never be vio?
lated, if they bad both.
WTbat a contrast between tbese and
the destructives, who, after peace bas
been won, would still force strife on
both sections. They know nothing
of war, save in the accumulation of
greenbacks for shoddy contracts by
whicb the Government was robbed of
millions, and they have become utter
ly indifferent to the sufferings conse?
quent on war, or the sacrifice of life
it must result in. Avaricious, fana?
tical, meau and base, regardless of
good faith or principle, and only
anxious to perpetuate their own
power, the piebald radical party
would destroy the Government, ex?
punge the Constitution, and drench
the land iu blood again, for tbe base
purpose of perpetuating their power
as a party. Such is the difference
between the true soldier nnd the
sneaking fanatic, who never shoul?
dered a gun or fired a shot in defence
of that Union he wishes to keep dis?
THE NEXT CONGRESS.-We hope
the following predictions of the Cin?
cinnati Enquirer may prove correct;
but doubt it:
"A gain of twenty-five m?mbers of
Congress will make a majority in the
next House against the Jacobins.
They will be secured. Two will be
gained in Connecticut, seven or eight
in New York, one in New Jersey, six
in Pennsylvania, two or three in
Maryland. Ohio will increase ber
representation nine or ten at least,
and Indiana will add three or four to
the list. In Kentucky, we shall gain
two-perhaps three. Illinois is book?
ed for four or five, Wisconsin for
two and Michigan for two. In Mis?
souri, there will be a gain of five or
six. This makes forty-five, or twenty
more than is required. The House,
under this computation, would stand:
Present anti-Jacobins, 45; to elect
as gains, 45; Southern excluded mem?
bers. 50/ Total 140.
"This would leave the Jacobins 101
members, who would be in a glorious
minority of 3!). A majority against
them in the next House, according

?usines* Sn New York.
We learn from the Herald that New
York is iii the height of tho fall busi?
ness with the Southern States. Seve?
ral thousand merchants from South?
ern cities and towns aro there, and
the hotels ure crowded with them.
The Herald says that there are at
least twice :is many merchants from
the South now in that city as there
were last season at the same time,
and adds that tins sight of so many
homespun suits aud slouch hats iu
Broadway reminds the practiced New
York eye of tho prosperous ante ln-l
lum era. Speaking of the Southern
trade, the Herald says:
Since the resumption of peaceful
intercourse with the South, mer?
chants from that section have found
little difficulty in procuring time on
their payments. Individuals coming
hero last year, exhibiting a fair re?
cord for integrity and business capa?
city, and offering to payfup as far as
in their power on their old liabilities,
were met in tho most liberal spirit by
New York merchants, aud were given
credit on all the goods they required.
With few exceptions, they have met
their payments promptly. Tho usual
time given has been about four
months. This fall, however, and
within the past ten days, circum?
stances have arisen which have occa?
sioned great anxiety to our large
merchants, and which may have thc
effect of seriously curtailing credits.
The ability of thc Southern mer?
chant to meet Iiis notes four months
hence depends greatly upon the con?
dition of the incoming cotton crop.
If the crop is bad, or fails entirely,
he. will fail to sell his goods or make
collections in time to m-;et his New
York liabilities. Unfortunately, the
crop is not very promising. Three
months ;igo, the general estimate was
3,000,000 of bales; since the plant?
ing, however, a variety of untoward
circumstances have occurred to re?
tard or injure the crop. First, there
were heavy rains, and then followed
a most unprecedented drought.
Finally, in some sections, the anny
worm appeared. The most sanguine
calculators in every part of the South
do not now estimate a crop of over
1,500,000 bales, while the average
opinion is considerably lower. Tin
latest reports continue to be unfavor?
able from all parts, except Western
Texas. Oar merchants are nat urally
anxious about this condition ol
things, and some ar?- hesitating about1
extending their credits. If an earl\
frost should fall upon the cotton
crop, all credit? would end imme?
diately for this year. Indeed, thc
cotton supply is for the moment thc
great ?picstion among-our business
men. Its influence is felt in everj
branch of business. It has its tami
fications in every direction, affecting
alike the ship-builders in Maine, thc
money brokers in Wall street, tin
spindle lords in Massachusetts, an?'

SUGGESTIONS TO PLANTERS.-A plant?
er, of Limestone County, Alabama,
communicates the following to tho
Huntsville Independent :
Now, Mr. Editor, that thc cotton
crop is cut short, it would be well for
the planter to consider how to turn
it to most profit. The first thing is
to gather it with great care and expe?
dition, for the rains, dews and atmos?
phere injure it every moment nfter it
opens-it bleaches and washes away
tho oils which gloss and strengthen
it, and gives it thc rich cream color
which designates a good article. From
the time it opens, waste and dete?
rioration begins. Owing to the
drought, the .plant is stunted and the
bolls so near the ground that, when
it rains, the clay and dirt is pattered
upon and stains it. And again, it
should bo ginned carly and with great
care. "Wo should get the best ma?
chinery to separate tho lint from the
dirt, without breaking it. lt is more
important to* do it carefully tluin ra?
pidly; better to use gins that do it
well, picking two bales per dinn, ra?
ther than four. For a small crop as
this year, tl. ?re is abundant labor to
save it, if it can bc made available.
Another question-is it best to
gather while tho weather ?3 good and
house it, and delay ginning, which
may be done in bad weather? This
is owing to the amount of crop pro?
duced, as a general rule; bur undoubt?
edly, if it eau be ginned as it is
gathered, it is most economical, for
several reasons; its quality is better;
it deteriorates less; it will sell for
more; is out of the way; debts are
paid, interest saved. The planter can
sum up profit and loss, and decide
whether to continue the business, and
if so, has more time to prepare for
the next crop. Now, while every
planter knows all this, and is pre?
paring for it, yet it may be well to
stimulate by timely notice; therefore,
let every resource bc brought into re?
quisition to secure labor to gather
and save all the cotton made. The
new system will require all our ener?
gies and ingenuity to make available
the only material we have.

THE MONOKEX. TOURISTS.-The New

The last attack ou the President by

of the impeachment of Mr. Johnson,
and the probability of his resistance,
the leading "what-is-it" ol this stroll?
ing band says that if "any military
commander" attempts to interfere,
the dire vengeance of tho people will
be visited upon him. Another va?
grant orator, who is described as a
bald-headed individual, in a shabby
coat and soi bed shirt, rejoicing in the
title of "Judge" Sherwood, declares
that if any ollieer or soldier should
dare to stand by the President, he
will be guilty of high treason and
must be lAnged. Of course, there
can be no mistake about the officer or
soldier alluded to. These irate agi?
tators may be certain Gen. Grant
understands his duty better thau they
do. and we believe that thc President
understands his also.
WHO IS THE NEGRO'S FRIEND?-A
few days since, a citizen of Rich?

County, met with au old slave in a
very destitute condition, and almost
naked. The negro told him that he
had been working for an agent of the
Freedmen's Bureau, at four dollars
per m cm th and his food. He had
received only three dollars per month,
and no rations. His former master
went with him to the man, and ask?
ed him if he was an agent of the
Bureau? The fellow very insolently
replied: ' Is that any of your cl-d
business?" The gentleman replied:
"It is, sir; this man was once my
slave. r have always treated him
well, and don't intend that he shall
be imposed upon now." He then
produced the negro's labor contract,
dravn up in legal form, and made
thc mau pay the negro what was due
him-about seventy dollars. When
he returned to Richmond, be made
complaint of the affair to the authori?
ties, and the agent has siuce been
