Tl?c Southern Aid Sleeting in 7?<\v
We extract tho followiug account
of thc proceedings of the Southern
aid meeting held at Cooper Institute,
on Friday evening hist, from the
World, of the 2Gth:
Thc meeting at the Cooper Insti?
tute last evening was less successful
asa more meeting than we had hoped;
but it .will answer the only purpose
which such a meeting can servo, that
of calling general attention to the
magnitude and urgency of Southern
destitution. The groat famine in
Ireland, which caused thc charity of
New York and other American cities
to gush forth in such abundant
streams, near twenty years ago, had
less in it to touch commiseration-to
say-nothing of the fact that thc pre?
sent sufferers arc our countrymen-, j
There ?ire large areas in the States of!
Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia,
where the supply of food is insuffi?
cient to last through tho month of
March, and cases were recited, at the
mcctiug, of families who have already
passed successive days without food.
Besides thc States mentioned, there
is a wide-spread dearth in the two
Carolinas, and thc whole area of des?
titution comprises hundreds of thou?
sands of square miles. Unless there
is eai'ly relief, on a largo scale, tens
of thousands of people must, before
thc spring blossoms appear, die week?
ly of starvation and of the diseases
which follow in the irain of famine.
The almost total failure of the corn
- crop in several of the States, and the
scantiness of the other crops, have
brought to the doors of the South a
spectre more hideous than tho car?
nage of war. Respectable clorgyrueu
are fleeing from their parishes on
missions like that for which reluct?
ant Jacob sent the son of his old age
into Egypt. We call attention to thc
pictures of distress presented to the
meeting in the remarks of Rev. Mr.
Bright and of Mr. Greeley.
Henry Ward Beecher was the crack
speaker of the evening, and we trust
' " wc may never again listen to a crack
speaker or? a topic which appeals so
touchingly to humane sympathies.
We have heard Mr. Beecher on rnanj
occasions, often with amusement,
sometimes with admiration, but we
never heard him make a speech so
misplaced or so bad as that lust night.
It seemed to bo his aim to use this
opportunity to atone to thePlymouth
congregation forthe Cleveland letter,
which raised about his ears such a
frenzied howl, last autumn. When
they read his speech, in this morn?
ing's papers, we trust they will be
pacified. We could pardon his rant
and his touches of low comedy, if the
spirit of his remarks had not jarred
On all the proprieties of the occasion.
He began by a sneering allusion to
the great "Union-saving" meeting at
Castle Garden, some sixteen years
ago, and proceeded to rake into the
entrails of the defunct fugitive slave
law, and tear open and expose all tho
old political wounds mutually given
and inflicted, between the North and
the South, from that day to this. We
noticed that Mayor Hoffman and
some other gentlemen, on tho stage,
very soon left, probably not perceiv?
ing tho connection between such a
harangue and the objects of thc meet?
ing. Those who sat it through had
an opportunity to discover that Mr.
Beecher's chief argument for reliev?
ing starvation in the South was, that
it was a refined method of inflicting
revenge! Ho seemed rather to rejoice,
on the whole, and glorify Clod, that
famine had overtaken tho South,
partly because it afforded an op?
portunity to practice what he was
pleased to <a'l "Christian ven?
geance," and partly because fa?
mine is a necessary means, in the
Providence of God, of compelling
the lazy Southerners to learn habits
of industry! Ho professed that he
could not exactly see the reason oi
this wise ordinance; but some othei
divine mysteries, he .'-aid, are equally
beyond his depth, which ho exempli
fled by a string of illustrations. H(
did not know, for instance, whj
every apple blossom docs not grow t?.
bo a ripe apple; he did not know whj
all babies, "since they take thc:
trouble to be boni," ?Io not grow to
be men; and he quoted, as embody?
ing some very deep philosophy, a
scrap of tomb-stone literature, to the
effect that a wonder-struck father, in
composing an epitaph, did not sec
what his child '-was begun for,"
since he "was so soon dono for."
But such silly buffooneries were the
loiist 'objectionable part of Mr.
Beecher's remarks. His Plymouth
Hock must be a cross between the
wolf and the tiger, if they needed a
labored argument to provo to them
that it is consistent with their Aboli?
tion principles to feed the starving
ex-rcbels. So far ns Mr. Beecher's
speech was argumentative at all, this
was the sole drift of his argument.
Mr. Greeley's remarks deserve
moro commendation. In following
Mr. Beecher, he began by adminis?
tering a quiet and very neat rebuke;
saying that there were so many topics
which it was wise not to touch on such
an occasion, -that he felt embarrassed
lest he should say something which
had betterbe omitted; and he spoke
for tho first two or three minutes in
amplification of this thought. He
said nothing which would not have
been appropriate if he had preceded
Mr. Beecher instead of following
him; but the garment was so perfect
a lit that Mr. Beecher's quick eye diel
not fail to catch his own image in th<
smooth mirror. His whole face wai
suffused by a prolonged blush. II?
relieved himself by frequently whis
pering something jocose to Genera'
Anderson, who sat on the platform a:
his side; but whether he was makin*
fun of Mr. Greeley's manner, ol
amusing himself with other topics
the audience could not know.
Mr. Greeley's remarks were full o
genuiue charity and practical gooi
sense. His shambling appearance
and fiat, uncouth delivery, were rc
deemed by au air of artless sincerity
which secured the close attention o
the meeting, and was more iinpressiv
on such a subject than oratorical ac
complishmeuts could have been, ha?
Mr. Greeley possessed them. The ide
on which his speech was framed-i
an effusion so inartificial can be sait
to bo framed at all-was, that th
generous city of New York needs n
other persuasion to charity than t
be. made fully acquainted with th
distress that required relief. Puttin
out of view all the political question
on which men differ, and every topi
or remembrance which has any bri;'
of irritation iu it, he gave a clear an
pertinent explanation of the presei
distressing condition of the Sout
and of its causes, and pointed 01
the means of relief which have tl
best chance to bo effective. Nothir.
could be more considerate, human
and judicious than Ids kind au
clumsy remarks, which can grate c
no man's sensibilities, either in tl
North or the South, and which a
sume that minds of ordinary gen
rosity need no other incentive to r
lieve their perishing countrynn
than a faithful description of tl
We trust the committee appoint
last night will bo prompt and di
gent, and that New York will set
noble example, which other Nortbe
cities will nobly emulate.
TILE HESCLT.-The National Intet
The recovery of the gold premiv
during the past week from thirty-o
to thirty-seven, is probably owi
to circumstances the reverse of thc
which had occasioned its previc
rapid decline of eight or ten \
cent. The decline was caused bj
falling off iu imports and an incret
j of exports. It is said, also, that
return of our Government hoi
from Europe is contemplated,
consequence of the rumors of i
peachmeui, and that gold will cor
nue to advance on that account.
To allay appreheusion, abroad ii
at home, as to the financial effect
the assumed ejection of Presid?
Johnson Crom office, the journals
voring that measure now take pa
to show that the event will hardly
a nine days' wonder, and that it 1
not divert the country from the "c
tener of its way." Europeans li
witnessed political disturbances
often, and have suffered from til
i too much, to be persuaded that p
j lie credit can be sustained and
'?. proved by them. If the credit of
! Government is not to be manife
1 improved by the intended revoluti
( then foreign capitalists will hastci
realize the present value of
? bonds. Tiny are held on spec
Mtion, or for investment, and if
> holders ol these can sell them
! "seventy now, and buy back at fo
E j tliey will avail themselves of the
. j portunity. Tho first movement
' ; wards a return of our Governn
- ; bonds from abroad for salo, iu
; I considerable amount, in consequc
r \ of the apprehended effects of
> j peach rneut, will be the signal f
r : panic in tho gold market.
CLOSING PB THB RANKS.-Thc
C?iislitutional Union, of Washington,
says: The spring campaigns are
being opened with great vigor by the
Democracy and the friends of the
Union. In Ohio and in Connecticut
thc platforms are laid d?\vn in such
unmistakable language that even the
j wayfaring man, tluHtgh a fool -and u
! radical, need not err therein. It is
I encouraging to know that throughout
i our entire ranks there is harmony in
; action, a. unity of pian, and that our |
j whole force is devoted to the execu
I tion of the grand object tc? save the
j Union and to early complete the great
! work of restoration. To again per
? feet thc Union of these .States is our
? paramount idea, and in our efforts to
J accomplish it, we display a singleness
j of purpose which is completely para
i ly/.iug the hands of the opposition.
The people, in whom an unwavering
( trust has been reposed, are emerging
from the clouds of radical fanaticism
and hate in which thoy have been
enveloped, and see with the clearness
of a demonstration how wickedly
they have been deceived. Tho Presi
i dent is rapidly assuming his right
? ful place, with increased favor, in the
' thoughts ?ind affections of thc people,
I and all are, on every hand, acknow?
ledging that the Union can only be
saved, with all its blessings, by a
rigid adherence to his wise and con?
stitutional policy. As the chart and
tho compass is the guide to the
mariner, and without which ho would
be lost in unknown seas, so to the
President is the Constitution and the
teachings of the fathers. To them
ho adheres, and while so doing the
ship of State is safe.
SENSIBLE.-The Augusta (Georgia)
Constitutionalist very wisely discou- j
rages the Southern passion for omi
gration as follows*
"To those who search abroad for ?
the liberty, happiness or sustenance
they deem impossible at home, we
wish God-speed. For the industri?
ous, hopeful and courageous, who
prefer, or are compelled, to cling to
their country, wc have ineffable sym?
pathy. Both have rugged paths to
travel, and to both, we trust, a noble
destiny will bc given. We are asked
in what respect can the prospect be
more gloomy abroad than at home.
Isolation, separation from friends,
uncertainty, lack of sympathy-these
are some arguments for the wander?
er's reflection. Fanaticism cannot
last forever. Reaction is bound to
eventuate. The radical party per?
force go the full length of anarchy,
or die; and the end of anarchy is po?
litical death for the disturbers of
WRITING MACHINE.-We learn from
the Greenville (Ala.) News, that Mr.
Pratt, of that place, has obtained a
patent for an improved Pterotype, or
machine for writing with type. The
Netos says, "the invention of Mr.
Pratt, which it has been our good
fortune to see in operation, is
one of the most wonderful and satis?
factory of the. age, and destined to
effect a perfect^ revolution in the
whole art of writing. So many efforts
had been made to effect machinery of
this character, that we confess wc
were af ong time incredulous as to Mr.
Pratt's success. But an exhibition
of his machine, against our strongest
preposessions, convinced us that he
had reached the acme of invention.
It is as simple as Newton's laws of
gravitation, but wonderfully original
PERSONAL. -Colonel Jno. C. Has?
kell, C. S. A., was in our eily yester?
day, stopping at the Lanier House,
and, we aro glad to be able to
say, in excellent health. Colenol
Haskell's military career was a very
brilliant one. He is a South Caro?
linian by birth, but was associated
with Georgia troops, and his many
Georgia friends will In: pleased to
L j hear that he came out of the war
t ; safe, aft<-r tho loss of his arm at the
t j battle <>f Manassas, although wound
- j ed several times afterwards. He is
> ! Oil Iiis way to Mississippi to look
! ; after his planting interest in that
1 State.- Macon Teleqraph.
i COMMERCIAL FAIMUES.-By a re
) port made by a commercial house in
i New York, it appears that during
- lstiC) tlnre were tio'2 commercial
- failures in the Northern States of the
i ; Union, of which tho total liabilities
: amount to ?17,333,000. This is a
, greater amount than has been lost by
) failures in the Northern States dur
V iug any year since 1861. In 1865
- there were 530 failures/?#itli 617,
? 625,000 losses. In the entire couti
t try, during 1865, there were 1,505
, failures, with 853,783,000 losses.

A NEFARIOUS BUSINESS.-It is the
richly-freighted ship that ip, tracked by the
robbers of the sea; and, on tho same prin?
ciple, it is the popular specific that the
'.and buccaneers, called counterfeiters, se?
lect for their shining mark. HOSTET
TER'S STOMACH BITTERS stand pre?
eminent among medicinal preparations in
this country. The demand for them is
something wonderful--unparalleled; hence
tho counterfeiters know full well that if
they can impose their fiery fluids upon thc
people as that famous tonic, they can
make fortunes by the fraud. They are
now at work. Detectives arc on the trail
of some of them, and others have been
already brought to book. Let the public
second the proprietors in their efforts to
bailie the reckless scoundrels who seek at
once to poison the community and swindle
the firm that has produced the liuest Ve?
getable Bitters ever manufactured. Think?
ing to dodge the law, the counterfeiters
are affixing to their bottles names resem?
bling in orthography and sound that of
? floatet tor, such as "Hochstetter," "Hoof
stetter" and tho like. Will the public be
kind enough to look to this, and to seo
also that the label is all right, with its
vignette of St. George and the Dragon,
and ita tiny note of hand, signed "HOS
TETTER .V SMITH?" The proprietors will
do their part to protect thc million from
imposition, and they ask the million to be
on the alert against the plotters against
their health. 110STETTEU A SMITH.
