Feb 6 1 O. T. MASON. Sec'y.
Hard swearing has been very com?
mon in this country since the Yan?
kees raised such a noiso over the
bombardment of Fort Sumter.
Almost every man in the North was
sworn at least twice upon his allegi?
ance immediately after Beauregard
opened his guns in Charleston har?
bor, and men who were suspected of
secession proclivities were sworn with
every change of the moon. It is re?
ported of poor old Cen. .Scott that,
fearing his flesh might prove too
strong for his spirit and tho safety of
his salary, he used to take the oath
of fidelity to the Constitution of the
United States every day before din?
ner. There was a perfect mania
upon the subject of oaths shortly
after the war broke out, and the ma?
nia has not subsided yet. Whenever
Congress meets, the mind of that
body is seriously exercised upon the
subject of oaths. The old oaths are
brought out, overhauled, revamped
and repaired, so as #o hold water and
bind the tough consciences of the
"un-reconstructed. " If Congress?
men were allowed patents for their
inventions, I i Rt" mechanics, there are
many who deserve perpetual copy?
rights for their inventions in the
science of hard swearing.
Even old Thad. Stevens has tried
his hand at oath-tinkering, and, in
his bill "to provide republican Go?
vernments for the late, rebellious
States," ho incorporates an oatli
which searches the heart and con?
science of an "unreconstructed"' ai
far back RS the -Ith of March, 18G4.
Wo acknowledge that, when a mar
is sick, the right sort of physic wiE
do him good, but then wc do liol
fancy having our drugs comp?n?dec
by such a quack as old Thad. W<
do not object to a decent iron-clat
oath; indeed, we have thought thal
when wc have become proficient ii
swearing, we might bc able to takt
one, by extinguishing our conscienc*
and forgetting that men are punished
in thc next world for deeds done ii
this. But we protest against an]
more new and strange oaths, becaus?
the ingenuity of the radicals is inak
ing them excruciating, and it wil
require a dictionary of oaths to kee]
tho people posted in them. Tin
thing of calling God to witness what
ever Thad. Stevens, or any othe
ungodly radical, may choose to pre
scribe, is calculated to wear ont th
patience of humanity and Heaven
and we have had enough of it. I
the fellows would take their ow
oaths, and keep them, we would nc

The Washington correspondent c
the New York Times gires the follov
ing on (lils:
Prom tho report of the Fiondo
7%?nes of a recent hearing in one c
tho cases pending in relation to rebi
property, before Vice-Chancelh
Wood, it appears that the recci
newspaper comments in the Unite
States in relation to the recent settL
ment, do injustice to Messrs. Mor?
and Gibbs, the officers by whom
was arrauged. The arrangement pr?
i vided for a statement under oat ii ?
all property under the control ?
Fraser, Trenhohn & Co., and i
transfer to the United States, su
ject to legal liens thereon for a
I vanees, such liens not tobe allowed b
'youd ?150,000. The whole leg
Hen was shown, by the sworn stat
mont from the books of the fir
named, to be ?270,000, or there
bouts. The Chancery suits broug
to recover tho property were to 1
discontinued, each party paying i
own costs. The property consist?
chiefly of ships and of other proper
I of a perishable character which, 1
I the agreement, was to bc at on
sidd, and the proceeds, after the d
\ charge of the liens, paid to the Unit
! States. It is stated that after tl
1 settlement, other rebel agents volu
? tarily came forward and offered
I surrender property, and that all
I nearly all the rebel effects in Furo
i were about to be reduced to the p(
' session of the United States, witho
; suit, when the settlements were si
pended by order of Mr. Sewai
? vice-Chancellor Wood is probal
I correct in surmising that some dip
? matic reasons prevented the dosi
j of the arrangement in the foi
* agreed upon. Judge Redfield,
? Vermont, has been sent to Fngla
to confer with all parties, and
report will probably determine 1
; final action of tho Government. T
j arrangement is said to meet with 1
: hearty concurrence of all parties.
A DEAD HALT.-Tho latest into
j gonce from the political centre of 1
i nation, says the Richmond Enquit
? indicates that Congress, during i
j remainder of its present session,
i tie more than a month, will be una
! to do more than discuss and det
! mino upon some plan of future
i tion. Both territorialization i
! impeachment have gone to tho w
and Stevens, piteously bemoan
j ",the great diversity of opin
? among members of thc samo part
j has fallen from his high estate of b
\ wether, and is no longer able, w
i fiery tongue, to lash all radical;
i into following his lead.
Mr. Raymond, with a spirit uni
? his own, insists upon action, ass?
; iug that suspense is ruinous alike
j the North and the South, but
craftier counsel prevail, and the
! caps determino to give public se:
I ment opportunity and aid for m
I inflammation, before hazarding cit
j of thedesper0* ""asures necess

' vern meut.
ANOTHER SNAKE STORY.-Tho |
i Vicksburg Times, of tho 19th ult.,
j is responsible for the following:
Some flatboatmen at Milliken's
I Bend, not long since, saw on the
. bank a long black snake, lazily
j watching the gradually lengthening
j ridge of earth peculiar to tho subsoil
' navigation of the mole.
The Little burrower emerged at the
! root of a tree, and the snake with
I one lunge captured, and swallowed
him. The observers * of this sad
! affair thought it was all over with
j poor mole, but. nothing daunted,
though perhaps unaware of his
perilous situation, he kept on
scratching until he came out at the
small end of the snake, who, feeling
suddenly that he had been cheated j
out of a square meal, turned and I
swallowed him again, with the same
result as before.
The captain of the flatboat, in
every respect a reliable gentleman,
informs us that this singular contest
was continued for eight hours, with
no variation, except that thc mole, as
lie became better acquainted with
the route, made faster time on his
Finally, the snake, completely dis?
gusted with the mole, allowed it to
go in peace, and dragging himself to
a hickory tree, butted his brains ont
against its roots. On being opened,
his "innards,1* from end to end, were
found to bi: as slick and smooth as
thc inside of a lady's thimble.
j BOOKS AND BREAD.-- Tho Assistant
Commissioner of-the Freedmen's Bu?
reau, in tho Department of North
Carolina, reports great destitution
and suffering among tho. negroes of
that State. Tho work of education,
however, is highly prosperous, thc
number of freedmen's schools having
boen increased to 118. The policy
of spending money in building
schools and teaching the alphabet to
little darkies, is well enough in its
place; but it seems to us that the
more pressing necessity is for some?
thing to keep the freedmen from
starving and freezing. Radical phi?
lanthropy is always applied to the
sufferer's head, when, in fact, it
would generally he moro serviceable
ni applied to the stomach, lt is
bread, not books, that the negroes
are most in need of. Let the means
of education bc given to them at tho
proper time, but in their present
condition the chief requirement is
employment, and the means of ob
taining corn bread for their stomachs
and brogans for their feet. The ra?
dicals ought to abandon the idea of
"elevating" the moral and intellectual
condition of the negroes until tho
latter shall have attained a position
in which they can be sure of enough
to eat. The idea that education is a
sovereign remedy for all the ills to
which darkey flesh is heir, is one of
the most absurd things of this age of
absurdities.-Xeic York Sun.
ARREST or TUE NEGRO BRADLEY.
I We leam from the Savannah Nexcs
and Herald, of Friday, that this in?
cendiary negro, who has boen creat?
ing all the trouble among the freed
j men lately, and who is said to have
I given advice to thc men on the Delta
plantation to shoot any one who at?
tempted to eject them, was, yester?
day morning, arrested at the corner
of Congress and Bull streets, Savan?
nah, by a corporal of tho Sixteenth
United States Infantry, and conveyed
to thc barracks, where he is at pre?
sent confined. He is in military cus?
tody, whore he will await further
proceedings. It is to be hoped such
steps will be taken as will prevent a
repetition of his mischievous inter?
meddling with the freedmen, by
which ho has given much trouble
both to tho military authorities, the
Freedmen's Bureau and the negroes
A FREEDMAN SHOT.-On Tuesday,
a group of some twenty negroe s, who
had assembled opposite tho Libby
prison, in Richmond, and making
signs to tho prisoners, were fired
upon by Private John Brennan, of
Co. IT, 29th United States Infantry,
and ono of the party shot and killed.
The guard had received orders to
disperse all assemblages in front of
the building. The negro killed was
named Thomas Winston Hall. He
had served three years in tho United
States army. The ball entered from
tho left side, and went through his
body. A jury of inquest was sworn,
and they agreed upon a verdict as
follows: "The deceased came to his
death by violence, having been killed
by a musket shot fired in the hands
of Private John Brennan, while on
duty at the Libby prison."
