Tho New Kai ional (fettling Measure.
Wc have hud sundry measures pro?
posed by the radical party, professed?
ly to re-unite thc now disjointe.1
States of the Union. For reasons
which the Southern States consider?
ed weighty and valid, they have been
rejected with entire unanimity, by
thc Legislatures of these States. The
Constitutional amendments, proposed
by the party leaders adverse to the
South, came up fer consideration in
the bodies referred to, after having
been regularly submitted by the
Governors of the respective States to
whom they were sent for that pur?
pose by tho Secretary of State of the
Federal Government; therefore, all
things were done concerning these
measures iu proper order-, and with?
out reference to the result, they
at least in the majority of the
States-received that due considera?
tion which so important a document
as an amendment to the Constitution
of the United Stales was entitled to.
We have now what profes-ses to be
the text of new amendments, both to
the Federal and State Constitutions,
.said to be originated and perfected
by sundry leading gentlemen of the
South, with the sanction and ap?
proval of the President, who has in
all our difficulties proved himself a
friend to the excluded States of the
South, and who, in his messages, and
in all he has said on the subject,
manifested his anxiety for their re?
storation and peace to the couti Irv,
which would follow such action, and
wc have no doubt but that ho and
the Southern gentlemen referred to
sincerely believe thal the proposed
measure is the best that could be con?
cocted under thc circumstances; and
further, that it may in the end prove
their wisdom in the preparation ol
its provisions, aud, as we have already
said, we have no doubt but the South?
ern people would sacrifice much ol
their opinions and prejudices to se
euro peace and, restoration.
We do not propose, at this "time,
to discuss this scheme of conciliation
but desire to notice ono difficulty ii
the way. Thc former proposition:
were submitted to the representa
tives of our people through the regn
lar official channels; this propose?
measure is merely the result of aeon
sultatiou (as we understand it) of ;
caucus of Southern gentlemen, hi cou
junction with the President. How
then, is it to come before the South
ern Legislatures? Is it to be suhmitte?
on their own responsibility, by the Gc
vernors of these States; and, if acte?
on favorably, what then is t?) bo don
with itV Is it to be sent to the net
radical Congress, ashing them to rt
admit the Southern States on thes
terms; or is it to be presented lo thu
body as the iiUimulnm of these States
all that they will yield to, as the prie
of restoration? In the first instanct
their request would undoubtedly b
declined; and, as to the second, th
South is not in a position to preset
an "d???i'itu .i to Congress, and :
might be regarded as a defiance t
that body, and, very likely, add t
the strength of the party at th
But aga.:a, wc agree with some <
our coteniporarios, all of whom th;
we have seen have something to sa
on thc project -thc majority, \>
think, speaking favorably of it-tu:
it does not become the South at tl]
present time to make any propositio
to Congress, or to .submit terms upo
which she would Ix* willing to be r<
admitted. Sin' i.-> not out of tl
Union by her own ;:?:t, and her pet
plc have, in every way, since the su
render of her armies, manifeste
their anxious desire to he re-instatei
Let this ora similar proposition coir
from the North--from the Democrat
conservatives find moderate men t
thc Republican party -and cornie
in this way, either as a constitution
amendment or otherwise, iL will r
CCive the prompt and earnest COI
side-ration of the Sonthern peopl
and, owing to their desire for pt tit
would probably bc accepted. Shou
this course be pursued, our poop
would, unquestionably, manifest om
more their desire for national pea?
iud unity. We seo no other cour:
?hat is practicable, or that wouldsul
serve the ends sought to be accor
plished by tho projectors of th
measure. If any other mode of pr
ccdure is thought available tin
ought to indicate it, and we have i
doubt but thc people would readily
give it their concurrence and sup?

Coi.,. TEW.-The Hillsboro Record?
er, referring to tho report with refer?
ence to this gallant officer, says:
"A young man, who gives his
name as W. W. Wallace, a citizen of
Little Rock, Arkansas, represents
himself to have been n prisoner in
the Govern tuent prison at the Dry
Tortugas, where he had been confined
since June, 1863, and from which he
was released on the 7th. of January
last. He says that among the prison?
ers at present confined at Dry Tor?
tugas is Col. C. C. Tew, who was
wounded and captured at the battle j
of Sharpsburg; that he was taken to \
Fort Delaware, and afterwards to i
Fort Clinch, on the Florida coast:'
that at some point in his transfer, in 1
an attempt to escape, he killed Col. !
Turner, of the Northern anny, for I
which lie was tried by aeonrt mar?
tial, and sentenced to perpetual im
prisonment at the Dry Tortugas:
thai he had been severely wounded j
in his hip, probably in the attempt
to escape, from which he was still
suffering. He says that Col. Tew is
passing under an assumed name, but
that he gave to him his real name.
It will be remembered that at the
lirst report of his death, it was stated
that he was shot in the hoad; this
man says he has still thc marks of a
wound in his head."
WTIY LABORERS HAVE NOTHING TO
Do.-The New York Express explains
very satisfactorily why laborers have
nothing to do, and why employers
aro daily discharging their workmen,
First-the Southern States are not
admitted in the Union on an equali
I ty, and second, tho country is in a
state of alarm owing to the revolu
I tionary measures of the dominant
! party. The Southern Staten, if they
I were represented in Congress, would
be to-day, what they always were,
J our best customers; bul it cannot be
j expected that capitalists will invest
i money in States whose future may
i be such as will characterize that of
! any land governed by narrow-minded
i and unscrupulous rulers.
No laboring mau needs to be told
I that no nation can prosper when one
' branch of the Government is con
; ?tautly and unconstitutionally at?
tempting to destroy the other de
: partments. There will be financial
j uncertainty and consequently lack
of steady employment for labor,
i until tic Union is restored.
THE DEFEAT or THE LEADER.--Thc
j Atlanta Intelligencer, speaking of the
; repudiation of Stevens by his party,
pays him tho following compliment:
"Si li oe this defeat of Mr. Stevens.
\ and what was once, his radical host in
the House, comprising as it did a run
i jori ty of that body, the old follow
has exhibited much chagrin and con
j sequent ill-temper. When he said of
Mr. 1 liligi mm that he 'neither asked
counsel of the gentleman from Ohio,
? recognized his authority, nor believed
a word ho said,' he but illustrated his
wh ole political life. When did Thad.
: Stevens ever ask counsel of any one;
I when did he ever recognize authority;
j when did he ever believe any one? To
I spurn counsel; t;? sneer at authority;
'?? to put trust in no one; are traits cha?
racteristic ?d' the man. Self-willed,
j obstinate, ambitious, malignant, true
i to but one interest, and that h is own,
; he has been as a leader most intole
I rant, and though not a. fanatic him?
self, as a leader of fanatics, tho most
i xacting and persecuting of them all.
History will write of this man that ho
abused every opportunity of doing
patriotic service to his country, and
] seized upon every opportunity to pro?
mote discord. To but one interest has
I bc cv er been consistently true -that is
i the iron manufacturing interest of
i Pennsylvania, which is Iii:, own. His
repudiation by Congress is but an
; advance movement, we trust, to his j
final overthrow. No nation, noconn
j try, can prosper, whose policy is di- j
reefed by so selfish and so heartless a :

The I^ate Ur. R. W. Oibbe?.
In the January number of the
American .Journal of Medical Sciences,
wo fiml, under the head of "Necro?
logy," the following notice of our
lamcuted fellow-citizen. It, is no
doubt, atributo from the graceful peu
of Ids distinguished friend, Prof. S.
"Died, on tho 15th October, 1866,
Robert W. Gibbes, M. 1)., of Colum?
bia, South Carolina, ictat lifryseven
y oars. "
The medical profession 1ms iver;
been foremost in the cultivation of ?
tho sciences generally, and in thc ad?
vancement of the varied stops ol'.
social progress and improvement;
and in our own day, none of its mern- j
bera have done moro to sustain its i
reputation in these respects, than !
the subject of the present notice.
Born in Charleston, in ISO'.), und
educated academically in the Uni?
versity of South Carolina, he received .
his medical degree in his native city, ;
in 1830; soon niterwards entering;
into tho practico of his profession in
Columbia, where ho has jost ended!
a life of extraordinary activity, dis- :
Unction and usefulness, l'or a long
course of years he lilied a Luge
sphere, enjoying the support und
confidence of oue of tho most on-.
lightened and refined communities in
our country; among whom ho will
ever bc remembered us the chosen ',
friend, adviser and consoler of more
than one generation.
His best eulogy will ho lound in n
recital of the .several positions occn
pied by him, and the work which hoi
accomplished. Deeply imbued with i
the ..he-sue sentiments, .Stint huma?
nuni mihi filiation pulo, ho entered
with zealous ardor int;; ;??i pursuits]
which teud to promote the general
welfare. His emly exhibition ol'
talent and energy, met with prompt
appr?ciation. Immediately on leaving
eolloge, he was appointed assistant to j
Dr. Thus. Cooper, Professor of;
Chemistry, Geology and Mineralogy, I
and, on his death, became his sac- j
cossor in that chair. After his rt sig -
! nation of it, he continued the pro
I secution of his researches in Geology
j and Palaeontology, His collection
of fossils became a very extensive
i and valuable one; especially rich in,
! specimens of the Sf/ualidai-hismono
? gram concerning which deservedly
I obtained for him high reputation.
In the midst of extensive profes?
sional employments he found time to
I teach and give lectures on medicine,
j in conduction with the distiguished
Prof essor Josiah C. Nott, now of
Mobile, and to prepare numerous
papers for the journals, displaying a
rare versatility of powers, and an
uncommon extent of reading and ob?
servation. We may point out as proof,
his "Memoir of the Fossil Genus
Uasilosaurus;" his monograph on
fossil Squal?lce, already referred to;
his lecture on "Tho Present Earth
the Remains of a Former World;"
and his contributions to the Southern
Quarterly Review, of articles on Palm
ontology, Ornithology, Animal Mag?
netism, Artesian Wells, Microscopical
i Examination of the Hair of tho dif?
ferent Races, Railroads, Ranks, the
I South Carolina College -of which he
! was many years one of tho trustees
; Malaria, Early History of the Judi
1 ciary in South Carolina, Historical
! Discoveries on tho Oregon Boundary.
I He also published throe volumes of
! ..Hist?rica' Documents of South
i Carolina," and a memoir of the
' lamented young painter, De Veaux;
meanwhile tilling twice, by popular
election, the office of mayor of the
i city, and editing, with great spirit
and success, a daily newspaper. He
! was a devoted lover of thc lino arts,
; and a munitlceut patron of artists;
and his residence was a scat of a wide
and generous hospitality. His fine
collection of pictures and statuary,
his library and museum, are now dust
j and ashes, consumed with his home,
; in the destruction of Columbia, in
j lsd?. His last days, therefore, wore
; days of privation .and sn tiering,
j Throughout the disastrous war,
I which terminated in that year of
\ ruin, he had served his native State
cs Surge, n-in-ehief; winning for
j himself, in that position, the esteem
and affection of friends and enemies
i alike, for his skill, humanity and ad?
?a i nisi ral i ve ability.
Ho vas for several years President
I of the Medical Association of South
Carolina, and had boon made Fellow
' of many scientific and literary socie
j ties at home and abroad; among them
j the "Academy o? Natural Sciences,"
the "Numismatic and Antiquarian
Society,"and tho "Historical ?Society
of Pennsylvania;" tho "Oriental So?
ciety of New York;" the "National

COTTON ANO COUTS*.-The Now Or?

Cotton is low. Its net return to the
planter, after paying tax, freight,
commission and expenses, is not more
than it vas before tho war. and the
expenses of raising it. yet to como
out, is treble.
Is not this enough to satisfy us
that it is our interest to raise more
corn and less cotton V
