Saturday Morning:, Nov. 10, 1S66.
Tlic True Position of tl\o Soutli.
We li ave never read a more tri?
umphant, vindication of the Southern
people than that pronounced by ex
Governor Seymour, of New York.
Wo quote as editorial the following
remarks, which he made at a recent
political meeting in ^Tew York. Al?
luding to the insane but formidable
efforts to enslave and territorialize
the South, he said : "We have more
to fear from tho South, if it accepts
the doctrine of subjugation, than we
even had to fear from ita armed re?
bellion; wo cannot enslave them
without enslaving ourselves. We
canrjot have a Government whose
Northern face shall smile devotion to
the popular will, and whoso Southern
aspect shall frown contempt, defi?
ance and hate to the people of eleven
States. The South has comparatively
little io fear from misgovernment; itt
lands bave been laid "waste; its sys?
tem of labor broken up; its bornes
impoverished, audits families thinneti
by the sword. It bas seen and fell
the worst. It can bide its time. * *
It is not wise or safe to ti'ample upor
those who for years, with desperate
courage, held their ground agains
the millions we sent to the field ant
the thousands of millions of treasure
we spent in the contest."
The South can bide its time, am
as true as the everlasting bills risi
before the morning's sun in thei
magnificent beauty, so sure will tb
Southern States assert their rights
As a cotemporary says, ' 'however slow
ly God's mills may grind, our vigi
will not be without final compensa

variable than human destinies. On

THE ENGLISH REFORM MOVEMENT.
Mr. W. E. Foster has been address?
ing his constituents, at Halifax, and
has laid down the tenets of the reform
movement. His speech has attracted
much attention throughout the coun?
try. The Daily News says: He de
serves the praise of having delivered,
not, perhaps, the most eloquent, but
certainly the most persuasive and
statesman-like speech on tho reform
question, which has bceu heard during
MANCHESTER MILLS ON SHORT TIME.
It was stated that, owiug to tho hea?
viness in the Manchester goods mar?
ket, iu the face of the advance iu
Liverpool, many of the manufac?
turers of Manchester had resolved
upon placiug their mills upou short
time, (four days a week,) in order to
cheek the production.
AMERICAN GUNS.-With regard to
the recent satisfactory trial of the
Rodman guns in America, the Lon?
don Mechanics' Magazin? says: We
understand that Government has or?
dered one of the 15-inch Rodman
guns, with improved carriage, shot
and powder, from the United States.
The gun will probably arrive in this
country in five or six weeks, when we
shall hope for a settlement of the
question between British and Ameri?
A ROYAL MARRIAGE.-It is stated
that the Prince of Wales, attended
by a numerous suite, will leave Eng?
land, for Russia, on the 5th of No?
vember, to be present at the marriage
of his sister-in-law, the Princess
Dagmar, with the Czarewitch.
THE FAMINE IN INDIA.-The Bom?
bay Tijnes, of the 22d of September,
thus speaks of thc deplorable famine
which has nearly depopulated . thc
best district of Orissa: The measures
of relief organized with such zeal in
Calcutta by the Bengal Famine Reliei
Committee and the public, and se
effectively carried outbythe officers
of the municipality, have produced a
manifest improvement in the state ol
tho city during the past fortnight.
An eye-witness to the present state ol
Orissa, who has beeu acquainted witl:
that province for many years, is ol
opinion that half of tho population
must have perished. Such being tin
ease, the condition of the snrvivon
must be truly frightful. Balasore
seems, at present, to be one huge
charnel-house. In Balasore aloue, nc
fewer than 396 died in two days, wh.il?
the survivors were in such a state thai
it took three days to remove tin
corpses, and the last statement w<
have seen issued by the Secretary o
the Famine Fund at that place, showi
that, in one week alone, more thai
200,000 persons, of whom 170,001
were incapacitated for work, obtaiuec
relief. Famine and sickness ever
reached the Europeans resident there
and it was seriously considered bi
the Government officials, whethe:
they should not send away their fami
hes from Balasore, as well as tin
other Europeans who were not ne
cessarily detained by duty.
FINANCIAL CRISIS ABROAD.-Then
are iu Paris several agents of foreigi
Governments, sent to contract fo
open and temporary and uupublishe<
loaus. The Semaine Financi?re, o
the 20th, is informed that the four o
five Governments thus seekingmone;
are offering from 12 to 15 per cent
for loans of a short date. Italy, Tur
key, Portugal, Greece, the J)anubiai
Principalities, Saxony, and the Go
vernment of one or two other coun
tries, are in want of funds imme
diately. The Paris correspondent o
the Post says negotiations are pro

aud certain financial companies

Tlic Result of tlic Election?.
The best resume of the elections'
held last Tuesday we find in the
Richmond Times, of Wednesday. It
will give our readers a pretty good
idea, not only of tho result, but of
the effects on tho present political
condition of tho country:
"Twelve States, on yesterday,
passed judgment upon the issue
which bas been raised between tho
Presideut and Congress. New York,
New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland,
Missouri, Michigan, Minnesota, Wis
consiu, Illinois, Kansas, Massachu?
setts and Nevada make up the dozen.
Of these States, Maryland and Mis?
souri deeply and nobly sympathize
with tho South, but the voice of their
best citizens has heretofore been
stifled by registry laws, which were
enforced during the war by Federal,
bayonets, and are now sustained by
the most brazen and atrocious out?
rages and frauds. Of this sort of"
lawlesnessness, we have just had a
precious specimen in Baltimore, and
doubtless in many parts of Missouri
there w-as enough of it on yesterday.
In all the rest of the twelve States
which voted on yesterday, radicalism
bas been running riot for many
months; except in New York, New
Jersey and Delaware, and in the Em?
pire State, the great city of New York
of late has opposed a brave but in?
variably unsuccessful resistance to thc
radical agricultural districts, where
the 'soul of old John Brown' seems
to be always 'marching on.' With
these exceptions, Massachusetts is
the type of all tho rest, and that
State, although perpetually boasting
of her morality, piety and intelli?
gence, yesterday doubtless elected a
notorious thief and disgraced coward
to Congress, because of his hostility
to the Southern people.
"Except slight gains, which were
anticipated in New York and New
Jersey, no one expected anything
but defeat and continued reverses to
the conservative party in the elec?
tions on yesterday. The loss of a
member of Congress here, or a gain
there, will in no respect control or
change the complexion of the next
Congress. Of thc ninety-one mem?
bers of Congress who were elected on
yesterday, we thiuK it probable that
at least seventy-five were Republi?
cans. In tho seven States in which
elections were held some weeks ago,
sixty Republicans were elected and
twelve conservatives. Of the present
Congress of o?e hundred and ninety
three members, one hundred and
fifty are Republicans, and forty-three
are Democrats or conservatives. We
think the probabilities are all in favor
of tlie strength of the Republicans
being just as great in the next Con?
gress as it is in this. They will pro?
bably have a surplus of at least twen?
ty-five over the two-thirds, which
enables them to bid defiance to the
veto of the President. Congress is
now omnipotent, and a worse des?
potism never scourged any country,
age or people. The atrocities of the
'thirty tyrants,' and the monstrous
vices of the 'French Assembly,' in
the days of Danton, Marat and Ro?
bespierre, promise to find a parallel
in the revolutionary body which now
riots in lawless power at Washing?
THE MEXICAN QUESTION.-A de?
spatch to the New York Herald, of
Gen. Grant has at last-most pro?
bably per instructions from the Pre?
sident-taken up the Mexican matter
in earnest, and will attend to it with
zeal so far as he can be concerned.
On Saturday morning, he invited
Senor Romero, the Mexican Minister,
to a confidential interview at his
headquarters, which meeting took
place and lasted for some time. After
Senor Romero's departure, there was
a staff meeting. What connection
this may or may not have had with
Mexican business, I cannot say. Oue
thing more: There is no reason to be?
lieve that the Mexican question has
been re-opened with France, but that
it remains just where the la^t pub?
lished note from Drouyn de l'Huysto
Mr. Seward placed it. The Govern?
ment is waiting to see bow the French
act up to the first of the corning year.
If at that time it is seen that there is
any bad faith exhibited or a tendency
to duplicity, then such action will be
forcibly recommended as will insure
our feelings and interests to be re?
President Juarez has written a let?
ter, in which he again asserts his
unwillingness to consider any projects
looking to a cession of the Northern
States of Mexico to the United States.
Furthermore, it is well known that
some three years ago Don Jose Do?
mingo Cartez came to this city, and
proposed, before the Executive, the
annexation to the United States of
the State of Chihuahua and States of
Mexico on the Pacific coast, in order,
as he said, to free them from French
intervention, aud that Juarez in?
structed Senor Romero to officially
deny that Cartez had the right to
make auy such proposition.
j The last report of the Commission?
ers of Emigration shows that the
number of emigrants who havo ar?
rived at New York during the year to
October 17 was 194,102. Tho ar
rivals to the same dato last year were
149,237. The increase this year is
45,237 so far, and will doubtless ex?
ceed 50,000 before the close of the
year. The total emigration of 1866
will probably be a little under a
quarter of a million.
WORK FOR CONGRESS.-Tho New
York Herald cuts out work for the
next session of Congress. After re?
ferring to the revision of the tariff,
financial matters, icc, it says:
"With this programme of the busi?
ness of the session, it is apparent
that Congress cannot afford to waste
its time in idle controversies with
the President, or in giving effect to
preposterous schemes of impeach?
ment which Wendell Phillips, Pen.
Bu tlc"-, Senator Wade, ex-Judge
Advocate Bingham and other fiery
radicals have been propounding all
over the country. However much we
may disapprove of Mr. Johnson's in?
discreet language and bearing, he
has done nothing in the Presidential
office that eau be made even a de?
cent pretext for his impeachment,
and wo hope that, even if Bingham
keeps his vow, not to give rest to his
eyes, nor tilumber <<> his eye-lids,
until he has presented articles of im?
peachment to tho House of Repre?
sentatives, aud if Stevens, and Bout
well, and Banks, and other radical
members stand by him in the per?
formance of his vow, there will still
be found in the ranks of the Repub?
lican party itself a sufiicient number
of thoughtful, fair-minded, impartial
men to prevent the carrying out Of
such an act of injustice. Thc Re?
publican party cannot afford to run
so great a risk; for it may rest assured
that the American people have too
keen a sense of justice to endorse or
approve of the deposition pi their
Chief Magistrate, for no- other cause
ihan merely tn gratify apolitical pre?
judice or dislike. ^
"We reiterate our belief, therefore,
that Congress will avoid a course that
would certainly ruin the Republican
party, and that might be fraught
with disastrous consequences to the
whole country; and wc agaiu give ex?
pression to the hope that, instead of
consuming its brief and valuable
time in snell a dangerous experi?
ment, it will devoto itself to thc; con?
sideration and decision of those great
questions of foreign aud domestic
policy which we have herein out?
TUE POPE'S ALLOCUTION.-For a
wouder, the cable gives us an item of
interest, in the annouueemeut, that
the Pope is preparing to" pull up
stakes and quit Rome. Thc intima?
tion is conveyed in an allocation re?
cently delivered bj- his Holiness, in
which, owiug to the fact of the Ita?
lian press denouncing the document,
it is to be inferred that he assails the
motives and conduct of the men who
have driveu him to the contempla?
tion of this step. It is a pity that
the venerable head of the Church
cannot yield to the inexorable logic
of events without giving vent to such
1outpourings of bitterness. The men
who are at tin; head of affairs in Italy
are not alone respousible for his tem?
poral destitution. They could do
but little towards bringing about*that
result, if the general sense of Eu?
rope, and, in fact, of the whole Chris?
tian world, had not been in favor of
it. There is scarcely a Catholic who
does not feel that the temporal power
of tho Papacy has fulfilled all the
useful purposes of which, it was sus?
ceptible, and that its further continu?
ance is detrimental to the best inte?
rests of religion.
In announcing that he will seek the
free exercise of his ministry in other
lands, the Holy Father evidently
means that ho will act upon the ad?
vice that we long ago tendered him,
and that he will select the United
States as the future seat of his labors.
No other country can afford him the
freedom of action and security which
henceforth must, be the guarantees ol'
his spiritual independence. Here he
will have a wile field for his exer?
tions in the endeavor to bring within
the fold tho thousand and one sects
into which our community is split
up. If he will only reclaim from
their errors the spiritualists, free
lovers-, nigger worshippers and phi?
losophers in breeches who have pro?
duced such a Confusion cf ideas and
principles among us, he will amply
repay us for the hospitality which we
afford him. We do not expect the
millennium from his presence, butin
converting fanatics, controlling the
unruly Fenian element, and teaching
tho black population of the South
the duties and obligations incident to
their new condition, he will be giving
us something like an instalment of
it.-New York Herald.
The beginning of the new year will
witness the inauguration of unbroken
steam, communication around the
globe, to be thenceforth prosecuted
regularly. The steamship Henry
Chauncey will sail on the 11th of De?
cember for the Isthmus: will connect
there with the Golden City for San
Francisco; and from San Francisco,
on the 1st day of January, the steam?
ship Colorado will sail for Yokohama,
in Japan, and Hong Kong, in China.
If, arrived at the latter port, the pas?
senger still wishes to journey West?
ward, he can proceed by the boats of
tho Peninsular and Oriental Company
to Bombay, and onward through the
Red Sea to tho Isthmus of Suez,
which, crossed by rail, conducts tb
tho British line of Mediterranean
steamers, touching at Malta and Gi?
braltar, and arrive in England, where
ho can take passage.
An Arizona letter, dated October
12, says a scouting party from Fort
McDowell killed and wounded fifteen
male Indians and captured two
squaws and seven children.
THE INTERNATIONAL OCEAN TELE- I
GRAPH COMPANY.-Wc understand I
that this corporation, which received
its charter at the last session of Con?
gress, has already nearly completed I
the manufacture of its ocean cable, I
and will, in tho course of a few days,
send out a party to Key West, to lay
down the lino from that point to tho
Florida Peninsula. The company an?
nounces its intention to have New
York and Havana in telegraphic com?
munication by tile middle of next
March, and there is a fair prospect of
an early extension of the line to Pa?
nama, thence through the entire chain
of West India Islands to British
Guiana and Brazil, thus making all
those countries tributary to our com?
merce. The last Treasury report
showed that the aggregate commerce
between those countries and the
United States amounted to Sl24,000,
000, which doubtless would be greatly
augmented under any system of tele?
graphic connection. Another advan?
tage is anticipated by this proposed
ocean telegraph, in the information
which will be conveyed to marine in?
surance companies when hurric.lues
are raging in the tropics.

THE COTTON CROF IN ARKANSAS.
A letter in the Little Bock (Ark.)
Take the whole cotton crop, for
140 miles from Little Bock, on the
military road for 100 miles; and from
that to Centre Point, and it is the
most ;nferfor one that has been raised
in twenty years. On ono plantation,
where they planted largely; I do not
believe the crop will average ?500
pounds to the acre. The owners,
however, calculate on an average of
GOO pounds to the acre. On this
place there is, iu cotton, some 000
or .SOOgaoros, 200 of which I saw; and
if that part is au average of the whole
crop, it would not bo out of the way
to put down tlie quantity at 300
There are several reasons for the
short crop here. Among them, are
two or three rises in tho Caddo, that
covered the larger part of the crop;
and to Hie overflow may be added
the unusual wet spring and early
summer months. Freedmen are em?
ployed on this farm, and I under?
stand the proprietors of the crop have
had much trouble to get them to work.
MEETING ON ST. HELENA.-On Sun?
day last, a large congregation gathered
together ?rn St. Helena Island, to lis?
ten to the remarks of Chaplain M.
French, recently returned from a
lengthy Northern trip, in connection
with the Freedmen's Bureau. It was
estimated that there were about 2,000
colored persons present, and a more
orderly assembly was never witnessed.
The Chaplain's remarks were received
with profound and absorbing interest.
This church consists ot ?00 mem?
bers- 120 being baptizedon that day.
Rev. Demas Washington, their mi?
nister, was formerly owned by Mr.
Coffin, and has learned to read since
Chaplain French proposes to ad?
dress the colored people at different
places, to enjoin upon t li eui their
solemn duty, strictly to perform and
fully carry out their contracts and
agreements. We wish him success.

A DANOEROUS COUNTERFEIT.-A
new and dangerous counterfeit of
United States legal-teuder notes of
the denomination of fifty dollars, yes?
terday made its appearance at the
Treasury Department, and was pro?
nounced by Gen. Spinner. United
States Treasurer, to be one of the
most skillfully executed ever brought
to his notice. The spurious note was
detected by the vignette of General
Alexander Hamilton, first Secretary
of the United'States Treasury, which,
on inspection, was found to have
been split from a two-dollar Treasury
note and neatly pastedl on the coun?
terfeit fifty. The engraving of the
other portions of the note is cleverly
imitated, and can only bo distinguish?
ed from the genuine by the closest
inspection. -A at ional Rep ublican.
THE RIGHT OF EX REBELS TO VOTE
IN NEW YORK.-In the Supreme
Court, in Brooklyn, on Saturday,
Judge Gilbert delivered a decision in
the case of Albert Wheeler against
tho registrars of the Seventeenth
ward. The case was brought up on
a motion for a writ of mandamus to
compel the registrars to registrar Mr.
Wheeler's name as a voter. They
had refused to do so, on the ground
that Mr. Wheeler had been a surgeon
in the rebel army and a traitor to the
Government. Judge Gilbert decided
that while his inclination would lead
him to disfranchise any man who had
been in arms against the Govern?
ment, yet that there was no law in
existence under which it could be
done, and he therefore granted the

entirely destroyed by tire, about 'J o'clock

OFFICE G. & C. RAILROAD COMPANY,
? . COT.VMBIA, November 9, 1866.
To the Editors o?lhe Phoniz:
I notice ;n your issue of yesterday, an
oxtract from a letter written by "George
Anderson, Esq., a prominent citizen of
Watorloo, Laurens District," in reference
to the movement of cotton across tho
Greenville and Columbia Railroad in wa?
gons, on their way to Augusta-suggest?
ing that freight charges on cotton over the
railroad should be rt-duced, and urging
the merchants of Columbia to offer in?
ducements'to planters and others to ship
to this market.
I beg leave to annex herewith a state?
ment of the freight charges on cotton over
this road, which, as far as I am informed,
are as low, or lower, than the local charges
on any railroad in tho South; and, taking
into account, tho depreciation of the' cur?
rency, and the increased risk in carrying
thc cotton, iu consequence of its increased
value, are considerably lasa than were over
charged before the war.
Arrangements have also been made
which remove all difficulties with reference
to the payment of the tax. lt is necessary,
however, that where cotton lias been as?
sessed and the tax not paid, that the as?
sessment shall accompany the cotton; but
it is very desirable that tho tux on all cot?
ton shall ht; paid tit tho points of ship?
