Change In Southern Sentiment.
The New York Times, like many
other Northern papers, laments the
great change in public sentiment nt
the South. It agrees with the Louis?
ville Journal, conceding that the feel?
ing was less hostile to tho North for
months after the close of tho war
than it is to-day.
lt is indeed a mortifying state of
things that we are growing more
apart, and that, under tho teachings
of partisans, whose rule and conse?
quence are derived only from the
misunderstanding of the people, the
public mind becomes daily more fe?
verish and excited. The South will
not enact tho Constitutional amend?
ment. They will not cousent to
brand themselves by branding those
whom they put forward iu a great
struggle, honestly, though most mis?
The North ought not to exact this.
But, on tho other hand, instead of a
generous policy, her people are dis?
posed to insist that the South shall
not be permitted to gain by the re?
bellion, and if the negroes are en?
franchised, the representation of the
South is thereby increased two-fitths.
All this is mere fanatical, political
As one of. our cotemporaries says,
the South is impoverished to an ex?
tent that will require all its energies
for years to come. Its interest is to
make the colored population cheer?
ful laborers, and to avoid social and
political agitations. If the radicals
would let the South alone, we believe
that interest and justice would secure
to the freed people all that they could
reasonably ask, and that the relation
of the two races would be harmoni?
ous when one asked in a spirit ol
kiudness, and the other concedes in
the same spirit, than is possible
where concessions are enforced on
the whites by a third party, which,
at the same time, is encouraging the
freed people's suspicions of injustice
As we have repeatedly said, all the
Southern people desire now is tc
prove their loyalty to the Govern?
ment and their fidelity to the Consti?
tution. Their whole course, for ovei
a year and a half, proves this, and we
shall hail with satisfaction the daj
when the people of the North wil
appreciate the position and tempe?
of their fellow-citizens South.
THE SUPREME COURT OF THI
UNITED STATES.-Our readers hav(
been advised by telegraph that th<
Supreme Court has decided that Con
gress has no power to authorize th<
trial of a citizen not in the military
or naval service by a military court,
where and while the ordinary court:
of law are open and in operation
The special Washington correspond
eat of tho Baltimore Gazelle, ia re
ferring to this decision, says :
"It will be seen that this decisior
goes to the extent of rendering nul
and void all convictions by 'military
courts' and 'military commissions' o
persons in civil life, necessarily in
eluding even tho prisoners at the Dn
Tortugas. Nor can the convictioi
be easily dismissed that if this decis
ion could have been made two yean
earlier, the fato of some now beyoni
the reach of legal remedy would havi
been at least a milder one."
NEARLY A ROW.-The Chariots
(N. C.) Times, of Saturday, says:
A conflict between the civil auc
military authorities occurred in Ra
leigh, on Thursday. It seems that i
negro was convicted by the court
there in session, and sentenced to b<
whipped. Just as the sheriff wa
about to carry it into execution, i
squad of soldiers appeared, arme<
with Gen. Sickles' order, and inter
fered to prevent it. The citizen
became excited, and seemed willhif
to back the sheriff, when a seriou
difficulty would have occurred, bu
for the timely appearance of B. F
Moore, Esq., who addressed th
crowd, advising moderation and sub
mission to the order. This much w
learn from a passenger. We will giv
full particulars upou the receipt o
CONFED?RATE PROPERTY IN EU
ROPE.-The telegram by the cable
from Paris, relating to holders c
fers to a suit by the_ United State
Government against l_ieut. Armant
builder ol Confederate men-of-wai
at Bordeaux, to recover to the uso c
the United States the purchase moue
for those vessels, which had bee

Where does it dwell? The Talla?
hassee Floridian luis been informed
by the United States Assessor Of In?
ternal Revenue in that region, that
"moro gold watches have boen re?
turned in the city of Tallahassee than
were returned in all Now England."
The Floridian further stated that the
Assessor regarded it "as an indica?
tion of the honesty of our people."
Tho Floridian regards it as more,
"It indicates that it is safer now to
make public mention of such portable
property iu Florida than it was in the
days of Dow; that watches and like
valuables are moro likely to be lite?
rally returned now, than immediately
before, or very immediately after the
departure of Dow from the command
of that department. That fewer
watches should be reported for tax?
ation in all New England than in the
city of Tallahassee is not surprising,
for tho orthodox New England creed
recognizes but one relation between
tho public authorities and private
property, that of 'protection,'and ig?
nores everything that looks to assess
ment. If we remember, the assessors
were able to discover only some thirty
pianos 'in all New England,' when
there is abundant evidence to show
that Dow- 'confiscated' and shipped
North, on private account, more than
that number from Pensacola alone.
These, evidently, were not returned
to the Assessors, and they are still
less likely to be returned to their
rightful owners. Dow considered
every piauo the 'key-note to the re?
bellion,' and his savage onslaughts
upon musical instruments and baby
linen made his name a terror in the
uurseries and parlors of Pensacola."
NEW COUNTERFEIT GREENBACKS.
Two new counterfeit notes of thc
greenback denomination have been
circulated in ninny,pf our large cities.
We give the description of them
compared with tho/genuine, in order
to put business men on their guard:
20s, imitation. Read on top Act
of March 3, 1803. The female in the
centre, with left band resting on a
shield and right hand on a sword,
has the baud turned to the left and
the eyes looking in the same direc?
tion. In the genuine, the head is
turned the same, but the eyes are j
lookiug front. The foot in the coun- j
terfeit is distinctly seen, and counts
four toes; in the genuine, it is not
visible. On the reverse side, in the
words "United States of America,"
the shading mus all through the let?
ters; in the geuuine, the letters are
shaded on tho edge only, showing
5s of the issue of March 10, 1H02.
The words "United States," when
compared with those of a genuine
bill, have a scratchy appearance. In
general appearance, paper and print?
ing, they are well calculated to de?
THE STATUS OF THE SOUTHERN
STATES TO BE TESTED BEFORE THE
UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT.
The Washington correspondent of
the Baltimore Gazette says:
Tho decision pronounced yester?
day by the Supreme Court has pro?
duced a profound sensation in this
city. Independently of the vast im?
portance of the matter decided, it is
regarded in Democratic and conser?
vative circles as indicative of a
soundness upon Constitutional law of
the personnel of the Court, that gives
cheering evidence that that august
tribunal may be relied upon as a bar?
rier against the meditated usurpations
of Congress. I have to-day heard it
suggested by very prominent and in?
fluential men that measures will j
shortly be taken to test the status of !
the unrepresented States before that j
Court, and no doubt exists but that j
the lawfulness of their present i
organizations would be sustained. I
A WARNING FROM CANADA.-A spe?
cial despatch to the New York Herald,
dated Montreal, 17th instant, says:
"I learn this morning, from a
member of thc Canadian Cabinet,
that Sir Frederick Bruce has been
instructed to inform the United
States Government that they will be
required to maintain the neutrality
laws as regards the Fenian move?
ment, and that if Canada is agaiu
iuvaded by an armed body of men
from the United States, it will be
treated as an invasion by United
States troops. "
PASTORAL CADD.-We have been
informed that General Ellison Capers,
who was a minister of . the Episcopal j
Church before the war, and who was
recently elected Secretary of the State
of South Carolina, has accepted a
call from the Episcopal congregation,
to supply Christ Church, at Green?
ville, which had been for some time
vacant. The Rev. Mr. Capers will
assume the duties of the church in
a short time. He is a learned and
able minister.-Carolina Spartan.
We learn from the Herald that Se?
nators and Representatives of radical
stamp now visit the departments and
urge appointments wit?l as much free?
dom as if all hostility had merely
been of a Pickwickian nature. They
are also received with all deference.
There is more communication in this
way between the Executive and Con?
gress than there was at the last ses
[From thc Cliarleston Daihj News.']
Thc Corn. Ag? .ny for thc State.
Mn. Enrrou: A bill has recently passed
tho House of Representatives whereby re?
lief will be offered the pcoplo of the State,
made almost desolate by Hie results of thc
late disastrous war. The bill authorizes
tho Governor to contract with certain re?
sponsible parties to bring into the State, at
actual cost, at least KJU.UtiO bushels of com
In connection with this matter, the most
important consideration is the selection of
a responsible party or parties, fully quali?
fied to discharge so important a trust.
This appointment, according to the word?
ing of tho bill, is properly made to rest
with his Excellency the Governor. Expe?
rienced and thoroughly practical men
should be selected. Vv here are they to be
found? Tho solution to this interrogatory
is at hand.
A proposition to carry through this under?
taking successfully, has, wo understand,
been lucidly put forth by Slr. It. ll. Biker,
grain and Hour merchant, and the proprie?
tor of thal extensive granary, No. 17 Anson
street. To his aid and support in this all
important duty, he bring? into requisition
the unquestionable ability and practical
experience of over twenty years of Mr. G.
A. Neuffer. Mr. biker has, we learn, fur?
nished the Governor with letters from very
respectable and responsible merchants,
well known in this city. His able assistant
in business, Mr. Neuffer, has been a de?
votee to the corn trade ever since 1847,
having conducted, with masterly discre?
tion, a very largo, if not the most exten?
sive, Hour and lorain business at that time
in the ?Sootbern country, and his well re?
membered expansive transactions at that
period were never excelled. His integrity,
too, as a merchant, is indisputable. His
information relative to the corn market,
South and West, ia thorough and complete;
his energy and perseverance knowing no
The mercantile cOsis o? 1857 blighted
the anticipations, and for a time commer?
cially paralyzed, the action of Mr. Neuffer.
He is again to be found, after having laid
aside arms-taken up in defence of his
adopted home-in the occupation bo is to
perfectly conversant with, and with thal
renewed energy which augurs naught bul
lu the discharge of a benevolent purpose,
benevolent men should be required. This
trait is a prominency in the character of
Mr. Neuffer. It i-i a weil known fact that,
four years ago, when the spirit of specula?
tion was in its ascendancy, Mr. Sculler
had Stored several hundred barrels flour.
Did he hold it for a higher figure? No; he
disposed of it at ??G and under per barrel,
while others not only asked, but obtained,
the price uf S75. Reasonable profits proved
satisfactory io him.
liv the appointment of Mr. Hiker and Mr.
Neuffer ?is the agents for this laudable
ui nier taking, another Consid?rai ion should
not be disregarded, and that is, their ex?
tensively conducted mills, where can be
ground fully 500 blithe's of corn per diem.
In taking leave of this matter and the
qualifications of these gentlemen, we can?
not too earnestly urge on our able guber?
natorial representative the selection of the
parties referred to Tor the position for
which they are so well adapted, being fui ly
assured that it will prov?! the first great
stride towards the accomplishment of a
project fraught with advantage to thc
major pal t of our State.

Reports from Florida state that
officers and soldiers and civilians

persecutions and annoyances on the
part of the civil authorities. The
municipal anthorities have frequently
! arrested Gen. Foster's officers and
orderlies for fast riding, when they
were going no faster tiren a canter;
and when Foster protested against
such arrests, the Mayor mado
answer. Foster then ordered him w
cease making such arrests, and tele?
graphed to Gen. Sheridan to know if
he had done right. Sheridan referred
the matter to the President, who
directed that the civil authorities
should not be interferred -with. Va?
rious judicial outrages on negroes are

States have thus far been re-opened,
and except where special application
is made, no moro will be for some
time to come. During the present
week 136 offices in North Carolina
were thus officially designated as dis?
continued. Out of the 8,000 post
offices in North Carolina only 3,000
