Politic* nt tin- Sou ?ti.
Our Northern friends arc hard to j
please. The Richmoud Tunes says j
that this apathy seems to be giving :
some Northern journals great con?
cern. They want us to rip, roar, bel?
low and swear just as they do; but
because we pursue a dignified course,
and mind'onr owfl business, they are
of opinicu that "it is a most unfor?
tunate thing tbs* so large a body of
the American people should settle
down into indifference on the vital
political matters of the day." And
yet, if wo were the noisy politicians
which they pretend to desire us, they
would make even that a ground of
complaint,"and point to us as a set of
"loud-mouthed pestilent traitors,"
who were about, to pull down the Go?
vernment about their ears.
It is very true, that we have a good
deal to excite us; hut with commend?
able forbearance, aro minding out
own business, and an; trying to make
corn-bread and bacon. We consider
this tx> be avery objectionable world;
but as we do not think we can sur?
pass Omnipotence to aid in pulling
it to pieces for tho purpose of put?
ting up another, we are not disposed
to unite with our neighbors in trying
sueh an experiment. Wo wish to be
as far as possible from the explosion
of that magazine which radical engi?
neering is preparing. We shrink
from nono of tho responsibilities
which legitimately pertain to us in
our present anomalous political con?
dition; but we feel ourselves perfect?
ly justified in wishing to have no
participation in the general social,
political and financial smash-up
which the radical mad-dog politicians
of the North seem to be so diligently
When we receive Northern ex?
changes expressing surprise that we
are so calm aud undisturbed, while
every loyal State boils like a caul?
dron, wo feel amazed, and we ask om
Northern neighbors what are wo tc
be disturbed about? Our misfortune.'
have made ns so eminently utilita
nan, and as we fail to see how we an
to profit by politics, we have ceased
to be politicians. As we are not ad
mitted to Congress, and receive nc
share of the loaves and fishes, in th?
shape of fat offices, we have no in
ceutive to that deep and dangerous
iuterest which seems to be taken ir
the affairs of this country, North ol
the Potomac. We are reconciled tc
our exclusion from participation it
the affairs of tho Government, by th?
reflection that we will have none o
the odium to bear which will just!;;
attach to those who, in their iusam
rage, are courting conflict with th?
land and'naval forces of the Unitec
States. Our experience, which ha?
been a sad and costly one, inclines u:
to peace and peaceful pursuits
We have never favored that politic?
squabbling, and we wish, now, to se
our "so-called" neighbors a model o
political propriety under difficulties
which they would do well to imitate
If the people of the North choose ti
butt their brains out against on
another, we hope that it will not b
necessary for either side to call upoi
us for help. We will wear crapo 01
our hats, and serve as mourners, no
with very long faces, it is true, bu
still will endeavor to do it decent!
and in order.
General Zachariah Taylor one
said he wished to be "at peace wit
ali the world and the rest of man
kind." That is just the condition c
the South at the present time. "Lc
us alone" is all the meek and lone
suffering people of the South desii
or ask; if they do this, they ma
fight like Kilkenny cats, while we wi
Le as calm and placid as we wrll ?'a
be under the circumstances.

A Welt Atitlicntiea.te?t Letter.
Publicity has been given to an im?
portant letter from Hon." O. H. J
Browning, Secretary of the Interior,
which was written to some of his
former constituents in Illinois, und
which, it is stated, 'on being sub?
mitted to the President, he fully ap?
proved and desired to be made public,
with the understanding that it fully
represented his present position.
The paper opens with a consideration
of the tendencies to danger in publier
affairs, chiefly from the centraliza?
tion of power iu the General Govern?
ment, and the absorption of many of
the powers and prerogatives of thu
executive and the judiciary by the
legislative department. The argu?
ment upon these premises is clear
and forcible, and chiefly directed
against the tendencies of the proposed
constitutional amendment, tho writer
concluding that "it is impossible to
maintain our wise aud happy form of
Government without preserving the
independence and sovereignty of the
States within their appropriate and
"The States may exist and perform
all their functions without the Union
or the Federal Government. The
Union and the Federal Government
cannot exist without the States, and j
they must be States of equality
equal in dignity, equal in rights,
equal in power, equal in the control,
absolute and unconditional, of all
things pertaining to their internal
and local policy and interests. Au
other blow which the proposed amend?
ment aims at the Government which
our fathers founded, is in the change
of the true basis of representation.
No matter how the elective franchise
be disposed of-whether exercised by
few or many-all classes of tho com?
munity are represented. The inter?
ests of all classes of people in the
same community are so interwoven
and commingled that they cannot .be
separated, and whoever wields the
representative power must do it for
the good or ill of all-perhaps not
precisely in tho same degree, but he
cannot use it so as largely to benefit
one class without, to some extent,
benefiting all, or to injure and op?
press one class without, to :i greater
or less extent, injuring and oppress?
ing all. Thero are always, even in
this country, where the right of suf?
frage is most widely extended, large
numbers who do not vote at all,
whose interests, nevertheless, are
cared for, and whose numbers, being
computed in the apportionment of
representation, widen the founda?
tions of the representative assemblies.
Such are all persons under t wenty-one
years of age, females of all ages, and
unnaturalized foreigners. Why ave
they not permitted to vote? And,
not being permitted, why are they
counted in fixing the ratio of repre?
sentation? They are not allowed to
vote because they are not supposed
to bo sufficiently instructed in politi?
cal economy and governmental affairs
to be entrusted with the elective
franchise. They are computed in
fixing the ratio because they are a
part of the same community with
those who do vote, having interests
in common with them, and their in?
fluence ought to be felt in shaping
tho laws by which their'rights cf life,
liberty and properly are to be deter?
mined; and although they do not
vote, their influence is fett and their
interests are cared for, precisely be?
cause they are counted in fixing the
relative weight of the communities
to which they belong in the legisla?
tive assemblies, although their voices
are not directly heard in determining
who shall represent them."
Tho letter concludes with an elabo?
rate defence of Mr. Johnson's policy
for the restoration of the Union,
showing that in principle it is tho
same as that of Mr. Lincoln, which
the radicals attempted to overturn at
their Cleveland Convention, called
after Mr. Lincoln's renomination to
the Presidency, and which the people
triumphantly vindicated in his re?
election as President, with Mr. John?
son as vice-President.
THE FENIAN?.-Tbo Now York
Herald, of Sunday, says:
Thc trial of the Fenian prisoner?
in Toronto, Canada, has been post?
poned until Wednesday next, Mr.
McKenzie, who is retained by the
American Consul to defend such as
are American citizens, not being rea?
dy to proceed with their trial. Fears
are expressed in Toronto that an at?
tempt will ho made by the Fenians in
the city to rescue the prisoners. A
petition is to be presented to the
Government of Great Britain, through
the Governor-General of Canada, for
tho commutation of the prisoners'
sentences to imprisonment. The trial
of the prisoners confined at Cornwall
is also to take placo Wednesday next.
Tho excitement in the city over the
Fenian trials and sentences in To?
ron! was lively yesterday, and
threats of severe retaliation were
freely made by the .Fenians, if the
sentences should be carried into effect.

sident will intercede in behalf of thc

OUR FOREIGN POLIO*. -Tlie Rich
mbnd Times say?:
A ]>ortioii of tho Northern press
favorable to President Johnson con?
tinues to urge upon him the adoption
olj?i vigorous and oven aggressive
foreign policy. It is contended that
by snell a course, he eau best avert
the dangers which monaco his admi?
nistration, mid unite the country in a
loyal and patriotic support of him?
self as the representative of the
power and dignity of the Govern?
ment. We some rime since adverted
to the obvious propriety and neces?
sity of this diversion, in tho shape of
an active foreign policy, from the
animosity and bitterness of our do?
mestic disputes. A foreign war six
years ago would have averted the
effort for disunion, and saved the
country the effusion of its blood and
tho sacrifice of its resources. Could
wo but have an interesting and excit?
ing complication now with some
other power, whether great or small,
we should immediately begin the
work of restoration and pacification.
We have numerous and fruitful
sources of contention with several
powers, promising a rich harvest of
complications to subserve this most
laudable parp?se of patriotism. It
is not improbable that the President
may be induced to lister, to tho coun?
sels of his friends, and embrace sonn:
one of these opportunities. Maxi?
milian may be threatened with imme?
diate expulsion from Mexico. This
would bo a defiance to Louis Napo?
leon. Our best opportunity, doubt?
less, is to bully England into a recog?
nition of thc claims for the depreda?
tions of Confederate cruisers. The
late speech of Lord Stanley, and thc
recent tone of the London Times,
indicate, conclusively, that wc can
bully England successfully. Let us
begin the war-cry immediately against
either Maximilian or England.
SAD STORY FROM ALABAMA.-The
Selma (Ala.) Messenger relates the
following sad instance:
A little business in the court house
led me to inquire into the financial
condition of this portion of the
country, and I learn that sheriffs'
sales arc becoming so common that
almost no purchasers are found for
the valuable lands and other property
exposed for sale. A gentleman in?
formed me that some t\ventyr farmers
hud been sold out lately, their lands
bringing less than Si per acre. A sad
instance of the reverse of fortune
produced by the war was mentioned
in the case of old Mr. Prewett, of
this County, whose estate was sold
out on the first Monday in this
month. At tho breaking out of the
war, he was the wealthiest citizen of
Tuscaloosa County. He owned 360
slaves and large tracts of land. He
had large sums of money out at in?
terest, secured by mortgage on negro
property and land. He was a home?
spun, economical countryman, who
bought everything at thc lowest price
for cash. He paid his physician's
bills before the doctor left the house.
When General Croxton came to Tus?
caloosa, lie took from this old man
some forty head of horses and mules,
all his money, provisions, ?fcc, which
was his first calamity. Next came
emancipation, which swept his slave
property. Next came the breaking
up of all the mon to whom Prewett
had loaned money, or for whom he
stood security. Finally, an execution
was levied on his property for a few
thousand dollars, and all Iiis real es?
tate was sold under the sheriff's ham?
mer for S?OO.
COTTON AND REFORM.-The Atlan?
tic cable informs us that the Man?
chester mills are now running on
"short time. " This is the device of
the manufacturers to keep down the
price of cotton, by temporarily de?
creasing thc demand. But if the
cotton crop be as short as good au?
thorities assert, tho price will bo very
high, in spite of tho manufacturers.
The "short time" will have one good
effect, however-it will give the work
iug-meu of Manchester more time to
think and talk and agitate about re?
form-more time to atteud monster
meetings and listen to that sturdy
Democrat, John Bright. In this
point of view, "short time" bodes no
little mischief to tho aristocracy, and
will only hasten the inevitable revo?
lution which now threatens England.
Were Napoleon in Queen Victoria's
place, ho would keep the working?
men busy, just now, even if he had
to pay for the cotton out of his own
pocket. He knows how quickly idle?
ness leads to barricades, and he never
permits unemployed workmen in
France. - New York Herald.
A FREEDMAN KILLED BY A MARRIED
LADY.-The Macon (Georgia) Jour?
nal records the killing of a freedman
by a married lady, the wife of an
estimable citizen. He had been
abusing a team; she remonstrated, he
became in.pudent, aftd she ordered
him off the premises, but he swore at
her, and on retreating into the house
he commenced following her. She
armed herself, placed herself in tho
door, and ordered him to leave, but
he continued to advance tow "rds her,
swearing he would go or come as ho
pleased. Not until he cam? up to
tlie very door-step did she fire; but
then so surely that he fell dead.

there were G17 dwelling-hou."?s de?
stroyed, and GOO damaged, 5 '.aces
of worship destroyed, and 3 damaged,

Tho London Pall Mall Gazette,
comparing India and other cotton
with American, says: "Ono thing
appears certain-at least all our for?
mer experience points in this direc?
tion-the cotton of the United States
will always, in themain, be preferred
to every other quality, if it eau be
supplied to us in ample quantity and
at a sufficiently low price. This being
the case, we shall only purchase the
articles furnished to us by India and
Egypt, either as supplementary, orin
case they can tempt us either by price
or quality; for there are certain cha?
racteristics in which the Egyptian
staple is preferable even to Ameri?
PARDON OF MK. TKENHOIJM.-The
pardon of George A. Trenholm. who
was the rebel Secretary of the Treas?
ury, was granted at the special request
of Major-General O. O. Howard,
Chief of the Freedmen's Bureau;
Major-General Daniel E. Sickles,
commanding in South Carolina; Ma?
jor-General Dix, and a number of
other persons of similar military and

The New York Tribune says that
mere promises will not bu accepted
from the people of the South; that

COLUMBIA AM? AIHIUSTA Ibu mo AD. A
meeting of tho stockholders el' the above
company 'viii be he ld this morning we
presume, iii Gibbes' Hall. A general at?
tendance is requested, us business ot' im?
portance is t i lie transacted. We extract
the following remarks, relating io the con?
dition of toe road, from the Augusta
Chronicle and Sentinel, of tho 29th :
We had the pleasure of a long interview
with (lol. Johnson, the able and energetic
President of the above road, a few days
aima-, and were pleased to lind tho enter?
prise in so very satisfactory a condition.
The grading is very nearly completed over
the whole line, and the most extetisive and
expensive bridge on the road is in rapid
progress of construction. The road bod
will be ready for the superstructure in a
few weeks, and wo learn that contracts for
the necessary cross-ties have already been
made, in which t he contractors, in most in?
stances, ?Ile furnishing the Iles fur the
stock of the company. Dy this arrange?
ment, very little ready cash will he required
for the completion of the road, except for
thc iron* chairs, spikes, Ac. An arrange?
ment lias already been made for thc neces?
sary supply of chairs and spikes with the
Tredegar Iron Works, hi Richmond, so
that really tho only pressing want, for mo?
ney is for the purchase ol' ?ron, amt a small
amount which is required for the comple?
tion of tho Congareo bridge, and the re?
maining sections of earlh-v.orU and ma?
sonry near Augusta.
Wc aro gratified to state that, the com?
pany is entirely free from debt, having
adopted, in the outset, the plan of paying
cash for all work done and material fur?
nished. This was a wise and judicious
policy, the benefits of which are hoing now
realized. With the road bed entirely com?
pleted without debi, it can go into the
market and raise money, on its bonds, to*
purchase tho iron, on more favorable terms
than perhaps any similar enterprise in the
South. The desire of the President and
Directors is, to complete the road, in every
particular, for the reception of the iron,
without encumbering it with any liens or
debts of an j character. They have a small
cash balance still in their favor, from the
sales of cotton purchased during the war,
but this is not quite sufficient to pay for
the bridge and for the completion of the
k'radiii^ amt masonry near this city. They,
therefore, ask from us the subscription ot
$100,000 to their stock. With this amount,
the road bed can be completely finished,
