Saturday Morning, Dec. 29, 1866.
Now and Then.
We know that large numbera of thc
frecd-peoplc ure Leaving tho upper
and middle Districts of this ?State,
and -wc learn from a Western cotem
porary that a Luge company of them
from hero passed through Atlanta
thc other day. on their way to Arkan?
sas, to work next year for $150 and
board, clothing, et ceteras. Thc New
Orleans Delta says that these emi?
grants will iir.il that these el ceteras
do not include everything.
Tho husbands income of $150,
with one hundred more earned by his
wife, with perhaps ??50 each for two
or throe half-grown children, with
subsistence and a shelter, would make
a freedman's family tolerable com?
fortable. Smart and active negroes,
who know hov/ to work to advantage,
and who know the value of their
greenbacks when they get them, can,
by thrift and economy, live very well
on the income named, und may save
enough to buy, after some years, a
patch of land with a house or cabin
But our cotemporary of the Della
says that they may expect very few
of the et ceteras which they used to
enjoy on the old plantation. Among
many comparisons which that jour?
nal draws of the past and tho present
of the negro, and his future pros?
pects, we extract the following, which
will at once impress every candid
mind that "the changed condition7'
of these people is not all that was
promised by ranting politicians, or
expected by themselves:
1. If they lose timo by sickness, it
will be deducted from their wages,
and their rations will 1)3 stopped.
The planter, having no property in
the future services of the negro, can?
not, of course, be expected to nourish
and feed him in sickness.
2. If his wife or children are sick,
he must stop work, go for a doctor,
and nurse tiiem himself. In the old
time, there was a physician, paid by
the master, Mithin an hour's call
there was a chest of medicines at thc
planter's house, and, generally, r
kind-hearted mistress, to measure ii
out und see it used properly; then
were experienced old women, whos<
business it was to nurse infants auc
the sick; there were comfortabb
quarters, with especially comfortabb
provision, for thc invalids; no anxiety
troubled thc sick mau or womal
about children, for they knew the;
would be cuixd for; there was no dla
mal thought of the morrow, nodange
of being turned outof doors, no pre
mature exposure after sickness. Th
patient v.?.s then inclined to prolong
the period of convalescence, while, a
present, lie w: 11 damage himself b;
attempting io return to work befor
he has recovered.

period. Provide ! The very thill)

They need white forethought, an

the ruling instinct of the master.
And the contrast might be carrie
out in a dozen more striking feature:

OUR SISTER STATK.-A petition
being circulated in Western Norl

praying that the loyal citizens of th

Speaking of the rumored design to
supersede the Stato Government of
Maryland, the Augusta Chronicle and
Sentinel very properly remarks:
We cannot prevent this revolution?
ary legislation. We have no voice in
the halls of Congress, to warn thc
people of the United States against
tho rash and suicidal policy of those
who are now in the majority at Wash?
ington. We have no deeper interest
in this question than have all and
each of the States of the Union. If
Congress can to-day at a single blow
strike out of existence the ten South?
ern Skates, it may with equal right
and propriety blot out at some future
time the tiie smaller aud less power?
ful of thc Eastern and Middle States.
The pretence set up now to justify
this infamous outrage upon the South?
ern States, that the Federal Govern?
ment is bound by the Constitution to
insure to each of thc States Repub?
lican forms of government, may be
used with quite as much force at any
time against the Northern States
which may fail to conform their
legislation to thc standard set up for
them by the dominant power at
Washington. This plan of "terri
torializing" the States of the Union
is a two-edged sword, which will !
certainly inflict upon the hands that
yield it as much harm as upon those
on whom it is intended now to fall.
Once yield the right to Congress
to use this power for any purpose or
reason whatever, and it takes no pro?
phetic vision to forsee that occasion
will not be wanting any timo the
Congressional majority may wish, to
strike from tho American constel?
lation any of its glittering jewels.
Wo of tho South may go down first;
but so snro as this great wrong is put
up^n us, just so sure does the sun of
American liberty set forever amid the
wailings and lamentations of au op?
pressed and outraged people.
The American brigantine Cuba was
captured by Chinese pirates near
Pedro Branca some time in last Sep?
tember. The captain was shot and
the vessel pillaged and fired. The
crew succeeded in extinguishing the
flames, and the ship reached Hong
Kong in safety. Thc ship Westmin
! ister, from Calcutta for London, was
I also boarded by Chinese pirates at
Prata's Shoals, in the Pacific Ocean,
some time in September last. The
mate and crew, except the captain and
six men, were set adrift by the pirates,
and were picked up by the ship
China, from Shanghae, but the cap?
tain and his six men are supposed to
have been murdered.
MILITARY COMMISSIONS.-The Na?
tional Republican learns that Judge
Wayne, of the Supreme Court of the
United States, will, under the recent
decision of that tribunal against tue
right of military commissions to try
citizens not in the military or naval
service, issue a writ by which i-r.
Mudd, one of the assassin conspira?
tors, will bo rvnoved from confine?
ment at tiie Dry Tortugas, ?md

that tho writ will not be granted. Thu

commissions does not apply ia these
EMANCIPATION IN BRAZIL.-A de?
spatch to the New York Tribune says
that tho Emperor of Brazil bas just
liberated the national slaves, the pro?
fits of whose labor belonged to the
Crown; and large numbers of the
freedmen, we learn, have entered the
army, and are being forwarded in de?
tachments to the seat of war. This
looks like the first step towards gene?
ral emancipation in Brazil-at least,
it is so regarded by the Abolitiou
party of the Empire. This being tin.
case, those intending to emigrate
might as well remain at home, unless,
indeed, they prefer the Governmenl
of Brazil to that now carried on al
IN A QUANDARY.-It is stated tba

confidence in the final triumph of hil

casion to condemn the i>roject tba
was being agitated in Congress fo:
tho overthrow of tho present Statt
Governments at the South, and de
dared that it would release those Stat?
Governments from the payment o
their State debts, and impose then
i"pon the United States. Mr. Sewart

THE SOUTH.-Tho Nevr York Times
has tho following, tho most sensible
paragraph which has appeared in its
editorial columns since it went buck
"Whatever may be the political
policy of Congress in reference to
tho Southern States, it should not be
blind to tho policy of fostering
Southern industry, Southern produc?
tion, and the practical business inte?
rests of tho ?South generally. Whe?
ther the present State Governments
ure recognized or not, whether the]
Constitutional amendment be adopt?
ed or not* it is a fact that the con?
tinued prostration of Southern inte?
rests is a serious damage, not only to
the well-being of the South, but of
the whole country. With a Luge
production and a prosperous indus?
try there, large revenues would be
poured into tho treasury-lightening
our burdetts, improving tho nut ional
credit, and diminishing the publie
debt. With tho present state of
things, revenues must continue as
they tire-miserably small. Even if
the plan of creating territorial go?
vernments for the Southern States be
curried out by Congress, it would be
advantageous that their material in
terests be encouraged; for territorial
governments will prove excessively
expensive affairs to thc nation, and a
burden upon the people of the North
which they will soon feel heavily
especially if Southern prostration
reduces still lower than now Southern
revenues. It is, therefore, exceed?
ingly short-sighted in Congress to
turn its back upon all projects for
developing tho resources of the
Southern States, merely because the
political sentiments of the people are
unsatisfactory. It is marvellously
like biting off ono's nose to spice
Orr. Pnosi'ECTS.-We have already
(piotcd tho opinion of Gen. Lowry,
one of the Mississippi Commissioners
to Washington, to intercede for Mr.
Davis. The Vicksburg Herald talked
with his colleague, Major Hillyer, and
"Ho agrees substantially with the
report of Gen. Lowry, as stated hy?
the Clarion. Major H. visited Mr.
Davis, nt Fortress Monroe. He is in
tine health, considering his confine?
ment, and be: rs himself as the people
of the South would expect from their
late President. Inside of tho fort he
has the most perfect freedom, and
but for tho pressure of the radicals,
and the indecision of President John?
son, he would have been released
long since. There is little prospect
now of his being released.
"Major Hillyer is of tho opinion
that the desigu of the radical majori?
ty to reduce us to a Territorial condi?
tion will be speedily consummated
over tho President's veto, if that is
THE EMPRESS CARLOTTA.-Some of
the papers belonging to the sensation
organization published, a short time
ago, what purported to be a cable
despatch, announcing the death of
the unfortunate Empress Carlotta.
The following, from a subsequent
Now York date, explains the matter:
A despatch, professing to have been
transmitted through the Atlantic
cable, but in reality coming from un
irresponsible and unauthorized source
in the city, and published exclusively
in several journals not belonging to
the Associated Press, announces the
death of Princess Carlotta. No such
despatch has been received in this
city, and tho statement therein con?
tained is cruelly false and utterly
spurious. It has tho appearance of
having been only concocted merely
to eretite a sensation, and the papers
which printed it aro unfortunate iu
the bad pre-eminence they have ac?
quired by publishing exclusively news
of such a character.
TAXING TELEGRAPH COMPANIES.
The Charleston Mercury, of Thurs?
According to the tax bill lately
passed by the Legislature of this
State, a tax of five per cent, is im
posed on the gross receipts of all tele
graph companies. It is now statet
that thc Western Union Telegrapl
Company, in this city, will, on am
after to-day, charge a premium o
ten cents on each message received Ol
sent, in order to reimburse tliem
selves in the amount of the tax. Thit
charge may not amount to more thai
fifty per cent, of thc gross receipts
but it is entirely contrary to the spiri
of th 3 Act, which was intended tc
place a tax upon a wealthy corpora
tion, which can well afford to pay it
and not to add an additional b?rdet
of taxation to a people which is hea
vily taxed enough already.

Gov. PATTON ON THE STUMP.-Wc
find in. the Florence (Alu.) Journal,
published ot tho home of Gov. Put
ton, a report of the proceedings of a
public meeting held at Florence on
the 17th inst., which wa? addressed
bj the Governor. A brief report of
his remarks is also given. He is still
strongly in favor of the Constitutional
amendment, believing it to be the
only route of escupe for the Southern
States from more unendurable propo?
sitions which Congress will becertrin
lo present and enforce. He believes
that the States will be promptly ad?
mitted upon its ratification. Thc
Journal says that "the whole tenor of
Governor Patton's remarks was to
impressa upon the people tin; pro?
priety of choosing promptly between
the two evils, that of accepting the
amendment or being remanded into
a Territorial Government to bc:
maintained by Federal soldiers."
The resolutions adopted by the
meeting declared their confidence in
the Governor, and requested him, in
company with such eminent citizens
of the State as he might deem it
proper to select, to proceed to Wash?
ington, aud there confer with the
authorities, und ascertain, if possible,
whether the acceptance of the amend?
ment will certainly be followed by
the restoration of the States, in which
event they "are in favor of the adop?
tion of this amendment, believing it
far better thus to settle our relations
growing out of tho late war than to
risk years of strife to seeure better
WEST POINT.-The annual report
of the Hoard of Visitors has been
made public. Tho examinations in
the studies of the past year were very
creditable to the cadets and instruct?
ors. The discipline of the academy
is good. The buildings are in good
order, and the hospital is arranged
with convenience aud neatness. The
Board recommend that the assistant,
professors be retained at least four
years, and the professors for a longer
period; that the chaplain be relieved
from academic duties, required to
hold daily morning prayer in the
chapel, and assisted in the discharge
of his functions by the intermission,
on Sunday, of all military duties not
indispensable to the preservation of
discipline; that the number of cadets
be increased from 292 to 4U0; that
the cadets, on graduation, be required
to serve at least two years in regi?
ments of the line before entering the
engineer or other staff corps of the
army, and that the standard of quali?

FREEDMEN AND TIIK CURRENCY.
Thc Omiigi.v?urg Times speaking of
Hundreds of freedmen lined tho
streets preparing for Christmas, be?
having in an orderly manner, and
only eager to spend all their loose
change before Congress should de?
stroy the value of greenbacks. We
saw one individual who luid his pock?
etbook lined with Confederate
money, which he was probably sav?
ing up for the next "rebellion so
called," and he evidently did not
desire to run the risk of leaving his
greenbacks with such unfortunate
companions, as long as they would
command good bread and cheese. Im?
provident people, they do not look
to the future, but squabble tho hard
earnings of this year's labor without
thinking a moment of the want.' of
the corniug year.

of universal suffrage in the hands of
such heedless beings?
FORTIFYING HOUSES IN IRELAND.
Says a Dublin letter:
Lu many of the country districts
the alarm' felt is still greater. A
dreadful sense of insecurity pervades
t lie loyalists in outlaying parts remote
from the military garrisons, and sup?
plications for the despatch of troops
to them are constantly pouring into j
Dublin Castle. Many of the land?
lords have put their mansions into
condition to stand a siege; in fact,
sonic of them adopted that precau?
tionary measure twelve months ago,
but others are now going on with it.
A despatch, dated JelTersou City,
December 2-i, says that (ion. Grant

of authority in the preservation of
tlie peace. Tho loyal men here are
