Til?: ICiitl ot' Suspense.
Congress has put au end to the
suspense which has. for many mouths,
injuriously affected business enter?
prise in every section of the country,
by not only establishing Govern?
ments for the Southern ?States, but
by passing a law looking, in the end,
to the reconstruction of the Union,
and the restoration of the present ex?
cluded States to their proper places
iu that Union. We take it tor grant?
ed, that, with or without the Presi?
dent's assent, the "Supplementary
Bill," as it is called, will become a
law; and thus a painful suspense is
ended, and with it. we hope, politics
and parties throughout the South.
The people ot' the whole country
now know definitely the terms of re?
construction, ?ind the people of the
South know where they stand and
what they have to do. Under these
circumstances, it becomes the people
of these States to promptly recognize
their condition, and go at once tn
work in all the avocations of business
and industry which tend to retrieve
their shattered fortunes and restore
their section to its former prosperity.
Our political status is fixed, perhaps
for years, although "we had no par?
ticipation in fixing it, and there
is now nothing left to us but tc
go to our farms, work-shops oi
places of business, and attend strict!j
to our duties as good citizens, ren?
dering obedience to the laws, ano
uniting in the preservation and main?
tenance of order in tho communities
in which we may reside.
Political discussions will hereaftei
be profitless; regrets for the cliang(
in our condition worst; than vain;arni
all attempts to institute party discri
ruinations, or array one portion o
our people against the other, is tin
most suicidal to our well-being, so
cially, politically and otherwise. Al
we have to do with politics is to ait
those entrusted with the carrying on
of the late law of Congress, honestb
and sincerely. Our duties as a peo
pie are plainly defined and pointei
out in its provisions, and there is m
use debating or cavilling at its re
quiremcuts. So long as this laA
remains iu force-until we are admit
ted into the Union-we must remem
ber that we arc residents of a "mili
tary district," and that simp]
obedience to the law will be mor
beneficial and productive of goo
results than any factious oppositio
to the progress of reconstructs
The termination of the long au
anxious struggle in political affairs
Ave believe, will be speedily followe
by a revival of business, both Nort
and South. The capitalists of th
former section now know the securit
they will have for investments anion
us, and our own people, being full
aware that nothing they eau do ca
change or better their condition, wil
we hope, take a long farewell to pol
tics, and apoiy themselves to moi
profitable pursuits. If themachinei
of reconstruction mus smoothly -
and we 'nave no reason to doubt it,
we conscientiously discharge ot
duties as law-abiding citizens-v
shall soon realize an improvement i
our condition in every respect. Trat
will revive, confidence be reston
and the credit of the business men
the South re-established in the ma
kets where credit is needed. Sue
notwithstanding till the draw-bac;
we have to contend with, is the prc
peet of the future for till true at
good citizens in the military distric
of the South.

Will Gt-orgiunx Execute tim Lu?!
Tliis question is Lest answered by
United States District Attorney Hen?
ry S. Fitch, Ks<}., who, in taking
h ave of the Grand Jury, at Atlanta,
last week, i> reported to have ad?
dressed the court as follows:
May it please the Court: Before
j the Grand Jury is formally dis?
charged, 1 desire, with your Honor's
. permission, to return to the members
j of th" panel my siucere thanks, asan
; officer of tl.e Government and of this
j court, ?ur their intelligent fidelity to
i the interest of the republic, and their
j prompt enforcement of its laws, lt
is gratifying to myself, and no doubt
equally so to your Honor, especially
at this critical period, to record Lhe
fact that the Grand Inquest for the
Norther?.] District of Georgia have
not only faithfully, but earnestly vin?
dicated, irrespective of persons,
places, or political opinion, the sanc?
tity of their official oaths and the
peace ami dignity of the United
States It; is a cheering prophecy of
future prosperity, a happy recogni?
tion ol' the truth that the Constitu?
tion is not like an Arab's tent, in?
tended only for a night's shelter, but
in perpetuity, like the Pyramids, at
once the monument of our fathers
an 1 tlie protection of our children.
After the sad memories of the past
few years, the very spectacle of a ,
United .States Grand Jury, to inquire i
into offences against the laws of the j
repu' lie. is not a figurative, but prac?
tical illustration of the dove; return- :
ing over the weary waste of waters to
the shelter of the ark.
The pleasure which I feel an irre?
sistible impulse to express is not en?
tirely unselfish. As a citizen of thc
republic and a resident of Georgia. 1
feel a persona] iuterest in the resur?
rection of a spirit of loyalty and de- i
votion to that Government which
alone has heretofore, orean hereafter,
by a wise administration of its laws,
give protection to the rights and in?
terests of every man who claims the
honor of being an American citizen.
And such will bc the feeling in
every Southern State. The laws will
be faithful]v executed.
THE I?ELIEF MEETING IX PHII?AUEIJ
i'HiA.-The meeting held in Philadel?
phia, on Friday, to adopt measures to
relieve the starving people of the
South, was largely attended by the
leading merchants and business men
of the city. Mayor MeMichael pre?
sided, and among the resolutions
adopted were the following:
Tho citizens of Philadelphia, in
town meeting assembled, are deeply
concerned to hear that, by reason of
the failure of the crops and other
causes, there is a state of famine pre?
vailing through large portions of the
Southern States. There is accumu?
lative evidence to show that many
thousands of our countrymen are at
this moment threatened w'th actual
We assure .mr fellow-citizens of the
South of our cordial sympathy in their
sufferings, and our earnest desire to
aid in mitigating tin- great calamity
which has overtaken them.
Representing, as we do. a city
which a benign Providence has bless?
ed willi :; redundant prosperity, and
which, from the days of William
Penn until now, has never turned a
deaf ear io any appeal on behalf of
human sut ', ring, we respectfully in
vite our fellow-citizens, of all parties,
sects and occupations, to unite, in a
prompt mal generous effort for thc
relief of our famishing countrymen.
The meeting was addressed by thc
Rev. Hrs. Boardman and Brooks, and
I John Welsh, Fsq. Committees were
I appointed to canvass the whole city,
I and a large amount of money, it is
j believed, will be collected.
PLEASAXT PI?EDICTTOX.-The San
Antonio (Texas) Express, speaking of
dry seasons and crops, luis the fol?
"There is.a tradition among tin.1 old
settlers of this frontier that the sea?
sons of prosperity in agriculture are
periodical. According to the tradi?
tion, there is ten years drought out
of every forty years. This section
has inst passed through more than
ten years of unusual severe drought,
j We aro about to enter thirty years nf
prosperity. Our farmers .should be
: 'setting their houses in order,' fitting
; u]> their fences, preparatory to the
j line crops toc?me."
! W,- earnestly trust that the predic
j tion of our Texas cotemporary will be
1 fully verified throughout thc entirt
i South, which has suftered a terrible
! drought, in many ir<i>/s, for the past
; four years. Perhaps the bills of

THE GKEAT FLOODS IN rm: WEST.- ;
Since 1847, there have not been such j
extensive inundations in the West
and South-west as during the past
few weeks. The Cincinnati Commer?
cial, of the 1-ith, brings accounts
from all parts of this vast region, i
which ate remarkably similar. At j
Cincinnati, the Ohio had risen eight-J
ecu inches in the preceding twenty-]
four hours, with fifty-seven feet in the i
channel. At Evansville, Indiana, "all j
the low lands on both sides of the;
river are au illimitable waste of
water, so deep that, were it not for!
the timber, the largest class ol' boats
could run across all points." Between
this place and New Albany, Indiana,
thousands of cattle, sheep ami hogs I
have been drowned, and hundreds of;
thousands of bushels of grain have
The Louisville Courier, of tin- loth,
says that "the water is in the second
stories of most of the house- along
the levee, while Shippingsport, the j
Point and other localities are entirely 1
submerged, and their positions only j
to he defined by the houses and :
house-tops projecting from t lie rapidly
ilowing stream. All the iou- 'ands arc
submerged, and hundreds ol' families
have been driven from their houses."
The officers of the Dan. Able re?
port at Memphis that tim whole
lower country is inundated. They
found only two dry landings between j
there and Vicksburg-400 miles. At j
Helena, the whole town is afloat, and
the drift-wood is breaking down the I
The New York World, speaking of
the prospect of early reconstruction,
says: "Weare permitted to print the!
billowing extract from the private
letter of an eminent Cenfederate
general, dated March 8, to a friend |
in this city: 'The Act of Congress,
bad as it is for us, I think, will result .
(if it stands as the law. and 1 pre- :
sume it will,) in settling matters be
tween the North and the .South. I
think the great body of thc people .
of tlie South are exceedingly anxious ?
for a final settlemcut; and that, re?
lying on this being .such, they will, '
without delay, acquiesce."
REVENUE TAXLS.-The reduction in
! taxes under the amendment to the i
! internal revenue law take s effect on
and alter March *2, 18'?7. Allexemp-:
tiens date from the morning of that !
day. The income tax now to be re- ;
turned upon the income ol' last year i
will bo paid according to thc new law. '
$1,000 thus returned is exempt, and j
all above that pays a uniform rate of ,
live per cent. Tin' returns must now I
! be made in March, instead of May,
as under the old law.
Tin- brig Charles E. Savage, loaded \

The Herald, of Monday, says:
Tho Senate, on Saturday, passed
a joint resolution for a searching in?
vestigation into the alleged misman?
agement of various branches of the
machinery of thc Treasury Depart?
ment, and the subject will c me up
to-day in the House, when th? mous
investigator of Buchanan's adminis?
tration, John Covode, it is expected,
will raise a little excitement. Even

his fears of the safety of his paper

gratified with the opening exhibition

an cager crowd of spectators, who
were kept convulsed with laughter
with the quaint sayings and odd
jokes of the two clowns, ono of whom
is Mr. W. 13. Donaldson, the author
of the popular song "Off for Charles?
ton." We do not think a better en?
tertainment of its class has ever visit?
ed Charleston. The entire perform?
ance is truly wonderful, and is
deserving of a more extended notice
than we arc able to give at this time.
Wc will repeat our former advice, to
wit : go early to secure good seats.
We cannot close, however, without
saying that the pavilion is the largest
and most complete that we have ever
seen, and we ure assured that it is
perfectly water tight, which makes it
a comfortable place at all times, espe?
cially so in inclement weather. The
most perfect order is maintained
