Thc Sw ut li Carolina Kailron?! Com?
The stockholders of this company
arc in session in Charleston, and the
work dono on tho. road since tho last
annual mooting, us shown by the re?
ports of thc officers, is almost incre?
dible. The following summary of
thc work wc take from thc Superin?
tendent's report which v_A find in thc
Charleston Courier: The work done
on the Charleston division was six
milos; hud down thc rails, rebuilt
trestles, seven cottages and two tunks,
at the various turn-outs. On Colum?
bia division, nine miles iron straight?
ened and put down; mile new iron
put on ?Singleton's Hill; 5}? miles re?
built with new rails, and the balance
of the division with the rails from
thc Camden branch; trestles gene?
rally repaired; washes in thc Conga
ree Swamp all piled, and mostly
lilied in; all the buildings absolutely
necessary, with exception of a house
for pump-minder at Stilton's, re?
The work on thc Hamburg branch j
was 42 miles built with new rails and
32 J with oki ; all the turn-outs and
necessary buildings for hands, tres?
tles, bridges, Sec.; bridge across Sa?
vannah Uiver and weather-boarded
tracks through Augusta.
The work on the Camdon branch,
which has boon suspended for want
of means, lias boon resumed, with a
prospect of its early completion, as
there are only fifteen miles to be re?
built, and the company has already
on hand 10,000 ties and 600 rails.
Wc learn from the Courier that the
policy adopted by tho Board of Di?
rectors in its financial arrangements
has proven an economy of six per
cent, upon the capital stock of the
company, and was carried into exe?
cution without any negotiation of its
bonds. This fact is sustained by the
following succinct statement of the
business of the board for the past
From freight. 877,51<?.79
From mails.. 20,349.20
Interest, foreign.. 120,006.81
" domestic... 78,674.55
Minor. 2,339.39- -$924,906.80
Net income.$387,821 .CO
Or 0 per cent. on the capital stock.
Thc bond debt of the company
amounts to $3,534,70S.92, of which
$2,212,044.46 is payable in London.
As the foreign bond-holders have ac?
cepted the terms of renewal offered
by thc eonvpauy, tio difficulty is ap?
prehended in the'speedy adjustment
of this portion of the debt. Of the
domestic debt, there remains the
sum of $133,087.50, to represent the
balance of past due bonds and inte?
rest, und much the larger part of this
amount, is in the hands of parties
quite willing to renew.
These reports show that, on the
whole, the financial affairs of tiri;
company and the condition of thc
road are much better than there was
reason to expect, and reflect great
credit ou thc energy of the President
and untiring Superintendent.
THE INDIANS.- TJio New York Tri?
bune, erratic as it is, very truthfully
remarks that the great blunder of our
theorists and law-makers is in treat?
ing ?di Indians alike. To treat the
civilized Indians like the savages is
an outrage and a shame. The former
need no "War Department" more
than white men. Neither do they
.iced agents. Whenever they aro
civilized enough to manage their own
affairs, they can do it infinitely better
tuan any agent can.
SIGNS IN NEW YOKE.-A New York
letter says, in the Bowery, there are
between thirty and forty stores to let,
.retail trade,) at rents materially un?
der present ligures. Many small dry
goods and other dealers are going out
M business altogether, whilo not a
few liquor-dealers, owing to tho ope?
ration of the excise law, are exhibit?
ing to sell out. Persons wishing for
small stores heretofore renting for
$1,500 to $2,500, have no difficulty
in obtaining a reduction.
SMALL. Pox.-The Lancaster Ledger
reports that small pox ?3 prevailing
to a limited extent in the lower por?
tion of that District, and that one
case augmenting there had developed
itself in the village.
Thc Frredmnti"* Relation? to the
Ch ii rr h.
A Northern cotcmporary calls at?
tention to the fact that thc religious
press is having some controversy
over the proper position of the freed?
man to tlie church. The New York j
Observer, in old times, (we have
not seen it since the war.) was a
highly conservative organ of tho
Presbyterian Church, but it has
fallen in with the radical furore, for
it insists on the Southern churches
admitting negroes to the position of
Presbyterian clergymen thc same as
white men. Tho Christian Observer,
of Richmond, has a very sensible
article in reply to the cant of its
Northern namesake, in which it says
it "does not think, there is a negro
on this continent who conies up to
the standard of a clergyman, such as
has been approved of by the church
for more than two hundred years."
It further assures the Observer that
the Southern people arc not yet pre?
pared to change their ecclesiastical
rules to please a set of theorists who
know nothing of lin1 negro character,
and then makes a remark that is
literally true, and cannot be gain
saved by the members of tlie churches
of thc North. It soys:
"The Southern church, laboring
quietly and unobtrusively in her glo?
rious work, has accomplished more,
vastly moro, in thc instruction, ele?
vation and christian iza tion of thc
millions of heathens providentially
committed tu our guidance, than all
tin; foreign missionary societies of
this land, witji their monster cele?
brations, and their mighty flourish,
and their magnificent displays of
numbers and money."
Some time since we noticed that
the worship of the negroes in Missis?
sippi, according to the statements of
the Rev. Mr. Marshall, of that State,
was fast relapsing into barbaric rites.
How much true religion' would suffer
by making pastors and teachers, in?
discriminately, of even the. most in?
telligent of the race, we cannot tell,
but thc experience of a year or two
docs not leave it doubtful as td any
beneficial results from their teach?
MASONIC.-We see it stated that
upwards of ?40,000 have been sub?
scribed for the purpose of erecting a
new Masonic temple in Brooklyn ; but
as a much larger amount is required,
a committee has been appointed to
visit all of the other lodges and soli?
cit additional subscriptions. All of
thc lodges will respond promptly, and
hand in their don-utions cheerfully
and on the square.
DESTRUCTION OF THE STEAM SHIP
CITY OF BATH.-The above steamer
was destroyed by fire when about five
miles North-west of Hatteras, while
on her voyage to Savannah, on the
10th inst. There were twenty-six
persons on board, twenty-two of
whom were lost, including a gentle?
man, with his wife and an infant.
Four of the crew were saved.
THE SOUTHERN RECONSTRUCTION
PLAN IN NORTH CAROLINA.-The re?
construction niau recently announced
as having been agreed upon by the
Southern Governors, and approved
by the President, has been submit
ted to several Southern Legislatures.
It is telegraphed from Raleigh, how?
ever, that tho North Carolina Legis?
lature has debated it for the last
three days without arriving at a satis?
factory conclusion. The majority of
the members seem to think that it is
a mere rehash of the Constitutional
amendment, and oppose it for that
reason. A vote may be taken this
DEATH or THE "IMMORTAL J. N."
Many of our readers will regret to
learn that tho great philosopher,
statesman, satirist and orator, J. N.
Free, is no more. Here was a terrible
example of the force of a strange
hallucination in reducing power to
weakness, greatness to humility,
grandeur to decay. This hallucina?
tion pursued him to the grave, and
like an inveterate, but powerless
demon, now sits and howls upon its
brink.- Lauderdale Ti tues.
FlRE.--About 7 o'clock last even?

Mn. PRESIDENT: I have traveled a

in various countries.
A large majority of those whom I j
met with were bitterly hostile to von !

pressed that hostility in so open and .
offensive a manner as to astonish
American travelers, and to leave a I
very bad impression on Europeans j
who were present. This was particn- ?

representation, called Motley to ac

Tuc BEST FLAX FOB KKLII.VING TH

stead of raising money to be distri

would raise a fund of several million
of dollars to be loaned to Souther]

a great deal more benefit to the pee

Jack Hamilton*!? Crew.
The New York News tims sum?
marily disposes of the Jack Hamilton ? i
crew, who have been playingtke part . ?
of camp scullions to the radical party ; '<
The strolling mountebanks who
perambulated the North last summer, 1 '
exhibiting themselves as "Southern
loyalists,'' displaying their sores and
begging alms, afterward organized, I '
nuder the patronage of radical Con- i
pressmen, a Southern Republican 1
As.-ociation, which represented no?
body but themselves, and hail no ex- ?
istence outside of Washington. This
nasty machinery has, until lately,
been used by the radicals in their
warfare upon the President, the
South and the Constitution, it being
employed by them to impress the
Northern mind with the belief that
there was in the South :i party
which sympathized with nltra-radi
This association met at Washing?

ings on that occasion siiow that even
the radical Congressmen have finally
comprehended ti ie ul In- worthlessness
of the association and of the unprin?
cipled political scapegraces who com?
pose it, and have thrown them and
their sores aside. To be sure, the
wie Ich es pretend that Thad. Stevens
and Gen. Butler have not utterly
abandoned them; lint no one will be- ,
lieve this. Stevens and Butler, how- j
ever bad they maybe, are not such
fools as not to know that Jack Hamil- ?
ton. Botts and Huunicutt, and their
dirty followers and their "associa?
tion,' are completely "played out." '
Finding that they h ive been de- !
sorted by their late patrons, the
honorable association now- turn upon !
their benefactors, and rail against
them in choice billingsgate, declar?
ing that tho radical members ol' tho !
present Congress aie "weak-kneed;*' !
that they .'have been derelict in duty
to their friends." mid that they have i
been "bribed by Now York hankers
to sacrifice the country lo Wall
street.". [We may he excused for
making the passing remark that no- I
thing would delight these Southern
loyalists one-half so much as to share
the bribes which they are too insigni?
ficant to deserve.]
Knowing that tiie next Congress is j
composed largely of the same men j
who constitute the present, and they j
cannot hope much from it, the de?
spairing members of the association
call upon the "loyal spirits" of the
whole country io como to the rescue;
to meet in Washington about the -1th
of March, and to instruct Congress
to impeach the President, and give a
few pence to the starving mounte?
banks. Unless the 'doyal spirits" do
this, these political vagabonds fear
that the next Congress "will brand
themselves before the world us a set
j of poltroons and fools forever."
These are evidently the last words
of the "Southern loyalists." When
they first made their appearance at.
the North, we exposed their scum?
like character, ami told the people
that the only claim which these fel?
lows could make to "loyalty" was,
that they had been false to both sides

Fois FREEDMEN.-The negro, Brad?
ley, who has been stirring up strife
among his brethren on thc islands
below Savannah, is thus referred to
hy the Boston correspondent of the
Springfield Republican, under date of
the 31st ultimo:
"Aaron Bradley, the colored law?
yer, from Boston, who has been stir?
ring up mischief among the negroes I
down near Savannah, is well known !
here. He was dismissed florri the
bar several years ago for mal-prac
tice, which consisted in forgery or
some such peccadillo, but under the
veil of time, and the tenderness of
the new bureau for the colored man,
he tried a year or so ago to get rein?
stated, and this time was paton ex?
amination before two prominent
lawyers as to his acquirements. The
result was a ridiculous exhibition of
ignorance and charlantry, which
made an amusing chapter in thu local
law literature, but was fatal to his
professional ambition in this latitude.
And so he naturally took his cheap
wares and his gross impudence to
another market. His stirring up of
strife among his more ignorant and
more honest brethren in the South is
quito in keeping with his previous
character here. Bradley know: just
enough to be a mischief-maker, and
it would be a useful service doubtless
to the negroes and to good monds, to
subject him to a trille ol' old-fashion?
ed plantation discipline."

ROBBERY or A BONDED WAREHOUSE '
IN NEW YORK.-Dates of the 12th j
instant from New York state that, !
some time between Saturday night ? 1
md Monday morning, a party of 1
burglars forced an cut raneo into the 1
United States bonded w..rehouse of
Conger & Miller, at the corner of
Water and Clinton streets, from the : 1
roar. The thieves passed through j
the cooperage yard of Mr. Briggs, on | i
South street, and climbing over a
nuantity of hogsheads and barrels j
piled up beside a fence, gained tile ?
tear of the bonded warehouse, and ?
were effectually s< eluded from observ- ;
ation. They first forced open one of j
the area doors, but inside of this i
were piled up a number of hogsheads , :
of sugar, and fliest; the rascals could
not move. They then forced open
another door, at a short distance from
the first mentioned, and entered.
Several cases containing dress goods,
cloths, linens, &c, were ripped open ;
but the thieves finally settled upon
three cases containing silks and satins,
the property of A. T. Stewart & Co.,
and the contents bf these were entire
ly removed, and placed in fifteen or
twenty rice bags, the contents of !
which they had emptied upon the
(loor. Having arrayed themselves in
some new underclothing which they
found in the place, and drank a quan?
ti ty of wine and liquor, the thieves
took their departure with their plun?
der. They also took with them a
quantity of jewelry, the propt rty of
a brother-in-law of Mr. Miller, who
is now ide.cut i;i Europe, and who
had left his furniture and some other
articles on storage in the place. At
f> o'clock, the workmen in the cooper
yard of Mr. Briggs found three bags
filled with silk, arid this has been
identified as a portion 6f that stolen.

about ?12,000, and that recovered

not without reason, that it was some?

one day dearly prized in a Southern
