Tho Methodist is a weekly so-called
religious journal, published in New
York. It publishes the sermons o?
Henry Ward Beecher, und its columns
exhibit the fiercest radicalism. Its
leading editorial, in its issue o? last
Saturday, is devoted to the South,
and, as usual, abounds with mis?
statements and misrepresentations.
After noticing tho great unanimity
exhibited by tho Southern States
which have already acted on tho con?
stitutional amendment, it comes to
the conclusion that there is little hope
of any immediate change in the posi?
tion of the Southern people, and de?
clares that the spirit manifested by
them does not warrant tho expecta?
tion that equal rights will be accorded
to all men.
In proof of its assertions, after no?
ticing the apprentice and vagrant
laws of Maryland, the Methodist sajs:
"The direct testimony of General
Sickles-a general of Democratic an?
tecedents-that it is impossible, in
South Carolina, to get verdicts from
coroners' juries pointing to the mur?
derers of freedmen, even when such
murderers aro known to them, aro
evidences that the spirit of slavery is
still alive in the South. The recent
direction of the President to General
Sickles suspending the operation of
an order issued hy tho latter, ?which
forbade corporal punishment and the
enforcement of the South Carolina
Vagrant Act, shows to what Southern
legislation, if unobstructed by higher
authority, must tend."
We have not seen thc testimony
alluded to, but the assertion made by
the Methodist that the spirit of slavery
is still alive at the South is absurd.
Wc do not believe that one man out
of one hundred in this or any othei
Southern State would re-establish thc
institution ii they could do so bj
law. The spirit has passed uwaj
with the body, and the Souther;
people, through their highest consti
tut ional and law-making powers, have
solemnly announced that slavery i:
not only abolished, but that it sha!
never hereafter bo established i?
the States. How idle, then, thougl
mischievous, \\ it for a leading reli
gions journal, of wide circulation, t
talk about the tendency of Souther:
legislation verging again toward
slavery. Thc Southern people btw
at?tcd in good faith, and they wo ul
not become a people whoso goo>
name and reputation for honor an
integrity would bo forever blasted b;
any action like that imputed to the!
by tho j uuual from which we cpjott
Their honor and virtue isas brig:,
and unsullied to day, after all the
have suffered and endured, as it wa
the day they took unarms in defenc
of a cause they thought just. Th:
is the testimony of Gen. Grant au
other brave officers of the army whic
overwhelmed them and their cause.
it is such language as the followin
which misleads the masses of th
Northern people, and influences the
passions against the people of tues
"The invet?rate propensity to g.
veril the negro by force will, unie:
we surround him with ample defence
re-assert itself. Wo must crea
these defence;;-the Southern peop
will not. If we give tho South i
way, it will re-establish directly t!
whipping-post, and the salo of mei
women and children at tho anctic
block. Tho ingrained habit of livin
in ease upon the enforced labor i
others, is not to be eradicated in
moment. It will assert its full powi
unless its exercise is rendered impo
siblc by the conditions upon whic
the Southern Stales are permitted
resume- their places in the Union."
And this foul accusation is nnblus
ingly made after all tho proofs tl
people of the South have given
meting ont equal and impartial ju
tice to the freedmen, and of thc
great desire to be restored to t!
Union. Verily, wo have fallon <
evil time.--, when religious journal:;
deliberately pen such gross misrepr
sontations and allegation.*; against
true and as brave a people as can
found in tho world.

Wo doubt if a Union party on thc
radical basis could bc organized in
this State that would number a cor?

SERIOUS CONFLAGRATION.-We learn
from tho Charleston Ncirs that a tire
occurred in the Kingstree jail a few
nights ago, which consumed the
whole building and caused a c msi
derable loss of life. Twenty-two
freedmen are supposed to have pe?
rished in thc flames. The fire origi?
nated in the eel! nf one of the pri?
soners, and before assistance could be
procured, the building was wrapped
in flames. lu consequence of the
absence of all facilities, und the jail
being in a comparatively isolated
position, the efforts to save the pro?
perty were futile.

late a soldier of Merrill's Horse, ant
Miss Martha E. Prie-, all of Harisoi
Jackson, lincoln und Johnson.
lu thc November number of that
obi and popular British monthly,
Blaclcicood's Magasine, there is a well
written essay noon tho character of
our first Presidents, and the influ?
ences they exercised iy the Govern?
ment ; bo? especially so, in regard to
tho til reo remarkable men whose
ne.mes head this article.. Wo make
brief extracts, that our readers may
see how these three Presidents of the
United States have impressed the
public mind in a country where nei?
ther fear nor favor detracts from his?
torical views of even the great men
of foreign countries, though national
prejudices may not always be sub?
dued by the writers thereof. Of
Jackson, as President, the writer
"As President, 'Old Hickory,' aa
bo was familiarly and affectionately
named, from bis toughness of charac?
ter, had three hates, (in addition to
bis private, ones, which were innume?
rable,) and a single love. He hated
debt, paper money and the United
States liank; and ho. loved, with a
love unutterable and unchangeable,
with a love such as only an American
can understand, the union of the
States; tho Union that was to make
tho republic the first power in tho
world, to spread itself over the whole
continent, from tho Atlantic to the
Pacific, from Ino Arctic Sea to thc
Isthmus of Panania, and, dearest aud
most ardently wished-for consumma?
tion of all, that was to domineer over
Great Britain, and press it down into
the second or third rank by au irre
sist iblepreponderance. He had fought
and bled for it against foreign foes;
ho was equally ready to fight and
bleed for it against domestic enemies.
How be conquered his favorite aver?
sion-the bank-and toppled it to
the ground never to riso again-how
he kept himself and tho country ont
of debt-aud bow desperately he
fought the battle of bani money
against paper, need not hero be re?
counted. But how he struggler
against disunion, and gave it a blov
from which it never recovered until tin
election of Abraham Lincoln, twenty
eight years afterwards, is a part o
our purpose to narrate, for the bette
comprehension of the tragic histor
of which is still enacting before on
eyes, and of which noone can foretel

j days of the deadly struggle, win.
few Northern men ventured to ho\
for ultimate success-when tho be
attainable boundary between Norl
and South was almost tho only resn
that the clearest-headed and mo
sanguine men anticipated-Mr.. Lil

hut wholly resolute, saw nothing fi
it, except, to uso his own home
phraseology, to 'keep pegging awaj
trusting to Providence to shape tl
ends, however men might rough-hc
them. He would lettbe South mai

new regions, until the Southern pe
pie were wise enough to let it g

The writer pays a well-deserved
tribute to Andrew John ?on, butas our
limits prevent us from publishing the
whole of his remarks, we subjoin the
concluding paragraph :
"When le; was called to fill thc
perilous seat which an act. of marty?
rdom had left vnc.mt, the Courodcracy
had collapse.1., and its bras-' but.
luckless President was Hying for bis
lifo toward Texas, with a hope -
which, if it had been realized, might
have changed the fortunes <,; the
North American continent-that if
he could reach this vast and not
easily to be conquered territory, "tie
might have prolonged tho war for
twenty years. Jackson's task was
but. child's play compared with Lin?
coln's as Lincoln's wan compared
with Johnson's. It is easier to con?
quer a foe than to raise him. maimed
and bleeding, from the ground, and
make him love the hand that smote
him. It was the business of Jackson
and Lincoln to prevent the disinte?
gration of a great community of frc
meu, and to baud the national flag to
their successors without the erasure"
of a single stnr from itu galaxy. They
performed the duty well and wisely
-the first with comparative facility,
the second amid all but superhuman
difficulties and discouragements.
Upon Johnson devolved a more gi-,
gaul ic work. When he became Chief
Magistrate, it might almost be said
that political chao:: had come again.
Tho war had destroyed slavery, but
had not provided !or the negroes.
War had deluged the land with blood,
destroyed friendships, exasperated
animosities, laid waste what might
have been the garden of the world,
consumed countless millions of
wealth, taken a father, ason, or a hus?
band from every household, laid low
in bloody and nameless graves and
trenches the heads of families,
pauperized tho rich arel delicately
nurtured, and thrown back for half
a century the civilization of tho
fairest half of thc republic, it is
true that the national temple stood
on the hill-top, a goodly structure*,
to be seen and admired of men; bnt
many of its ?nain pillars were brokeu,
strewn ou the ground, blackened with
the torch of destruction, or redden?
ed with the blood of unhappy thou?
sands who bad been crushed beneath
their fall. How was Andrew John?
son, the poor plebeian, to restore
these broken columns to their places?
How was be to efface the bitter
memories of conquest, and reconcile
the victim to the victor? How was in?
to draw North and South into that
partnership of interest and affection
without which thc Union would bc
but another name for cruel domi?
nation on the one side, and humiliat?
ing submission on the other? Tho
task indeed was herculean, and need?
ed not only honesty, courage, de?
votion, and wisdom, but rare good
fortune in him who undertook it.
The honesty, the courage, the wisdom,
and the devotion .vere with Andrew
Johnson, lt remains to be seen
whether the good fortune will attend
Truly, as the writer says, tho task
imposed upou Andrew Johnson was
herculean, and needed not only ho?

TIIE TARIFF. -The New York Herald,
in its notieo of tho report of Com?
missioner Wells recommending a
general reduction of taxes, says:
Mr. Wells is evidently personally
disposed towards a high "tariff, yet he
accepts it merely as incidental to the
production of a necessary revenue.
The report in general favors a reduc?
tion of taxation, which is just what
the people require. We have too
many taxes, and they ave levied at too
heavy a rate and too great a cost to
the Government. Ii" the regulation
of the tariff should incidentally ac?
crue to any particular branch of in?
dustry, there can be no objection;
but a tariff imposed for this purpose
alone is most unpopular. Wo must
have our taxation arranged upon a
general plan, with a view to obtain?
ing sufficient revenue for the Govern?
ment expenses, and for no other
object. There has always been a
conflict between the ideas of tariff
for protection and tariff for revenue,
and it is now pretty well understood
that tho latter is the only legitimate
method which can be tolerated.
Manufacturers of certain articles
claim specific privileges, which they
are continually advancing in the lob?
by; but. they ure only like Wall street
brokers, who "corner" some particu?
lar stock, and then sell ont to their
own advantage. The difference be?
tween the manufacturers and the
stock brokers is, that the former ex?
pect Congress to do the work for them
which the stool: brokers do for them?
St. Louis capitalists propose laying

Thc R?publicains held a caucus in
Washington, on Saturday night. Thc
correspondent of tho Herald says:
Tho Republican members of the
House of Representatives held a cau?
cus at the capitol to-night, Hon. G.
W. Schofield, of Pennsylvania, in thc
chair, and Mr. Donnelly, of Minne?
sota, acting as Secretary. About
sixty representatives were present.
Mr. Spaulding, <.f Ohio, offered a
resolution that no measure Looking
towards the- impeachment of the Pre?
sident of the United States should be
presented in tho House unless pre?
viously agreed upon hy a caucus.
This was amended, by providing that
l>of< <re any final act' .:> by tee caucus,
elie subject should be referred to the
Committee on the Judiciary.
Mr. Ashley, of Ohio, moved au
amendment in effect that no article
of impeachment should be preferred
without first hoing considered by a
caucus. This was agreed to.
Mr. Stevens moved that the whole
subject be laid on the table.
The question was determined in
the negative by a voie of nearly two
to one. Tho original resolution, as
amended, was then agr"od to by a
There was much incidental debate
between Bingham, Steveus and
others on the legal questions involved
-namely, whether an impeachment
could be partly tried by the Senate,
of the Thirty-ninth Congress; also,
whether tho House cf Representa?
tives of the Thirty-ninth Cougress
could prefer articles of impeachment
to be tried by the Senate of the
Forty-ninth Congress; or whether,
should articles of impeachment be
now preferred, aud not concluded ed.
the expiration of the present Con?
gress, they willa1.! have io bo renewed
in the Fortieth Congress. Mr. Ste?
vens took the ground that tao Senate
did nol expire with tho Congress, ou
the -ltli of March next, it being a per?
petual body. 7?r. Bingham combatted
that view, arguing that as one-third
of tho present S*:iata would go out
on the 4th of March next, the Presi?
de:, t could not afterwards continue to
be tried by a Senate composed of
.one-third new members on articles
partially tried by tho preceding Se?
The debate between these gentle?
men was extremely spirited. Mr.
Bingham speaking in hi 4 usually im?
pressive style, and Mr. Steveus ex?
hibiting :i corresponding degree of
earnestness. The caucus, however,
in the main '.vas haxmonions. There
appeared to be a general dispostion
to vote for an inquiry into the matter
as to whether the President should
be impeached, while a large number
were of an opinion that tho Presi?
dent ought to be impeached. Mr.
Bingham made the point that articles
of impeachment, for the reasons ho
had previously stated, should not bc
preferred during the present Cou?
gress, for want of time, and reminded
gentlemen that tho trial of Warren
Hastings lasted seven years.
It was finally determined to proceed
with the business, to collect and ar?
range tin? evidence in support of the
impeachment and prepare tho docu?
menta to be submitted to tho Senate
at the commencement of next, session.
The New York Herald, of Saturday,
has tho following remarks on tho
adoption of the constitutional amend?
ment by the Northern Legislatures:
"Tho members of theso Legisla?
tures, as well as those of the next
Congress, were elected mainly on
this single issue, and the question
must be met at once aud finally set?
tled in accordance with the distinct
and unmistakable demonstrations of
the will of the Northern people ia
their Jato elections. It is highly pro ?
bable that before the 4th of next
March, tho constitutional * amend?
ment will have been ratified bj* three
fourths of tho States now represented
in Congress. It will then stand be?
fore the country as the ultimatum of
thc North-au ultimatum which, ac?
cepted or not by Southern Legisla?
tures, Congress will not hesitate to
adopt and enforce as part of tho Con?
stitution. The people of the South
can no lougcr fail to see it, ls it is in
tho clearest possible light. It will
only remain for them to "accept tho
situation" in all sincerity and without
delay, lest the majority at tho North
should be excited by fanatical ex?
tremists-the Jacobins of our day-to
insist upon terms less moderate and
reasonable than will at present satisfy
the more conservative adherents of
the dominant party. It is idle to re?
sist the logic of events, lt is even
criminal not to make tho best of ac?
tual circumstances, when neglecting
to do so will inevitably aggravate the
worst features of the case."
The Dayton Religious Telescope, tho
organ of the United Brethren, says
"strange things aro sometimes re?
ceived by ministers of the gospel as
remuneration for their services. The
editor of a leading exchange says that
he once accepted a load of manure

Mr. Eldridge, of Wisconsin, asked
leave to offer the following:
Resolved, Thut the following reso?
lution, introduced into the House of
Representatives, December 4, 1SG2,
by Hon. Thaddeus Stevens, expresses
tho conviction and sense of this
House, to wit: "Resolved, That if

or advise the acceptance of any such
proposition, on any other basis than
the integrity and entire unity of the

as they existed at the titno of the re?
