Forsaking HM li Country.
Tho New Orleaus Picayune, ol a
recent date, says that over 300 people
sailed from that port on tho steamer
Marmion, bound for Brazil. They
wcro mostly from Louisiana and
neighboring States, and leave tho
country voluntary exiles forever. Tho
Picayune furthermore understands
that other vessels are to follow tho
Marmion, with tho samo destination,
'and that it is probable they will go
out full of emigrants. Thc Picayune
accounts for tho melancholy state of
affairs by saying that the feeling of
discontent, of anxiety, of desponden?
cy, runs higher in that sectiou than
ever-higher oven than immediately
after the close of the war.
As we have, on more than oue occa?
sion, said in this journal, that whilo
these discontented Southerners have
a right to seek a happier laud-if
they can find it^-aud to cast their
lots anywhere thoy may choose, yet
we cannot but think that they arc
wrong, and that a fow years' expe?
rience will teach them that they had
better have boruc the evils of the pre?
sent than to embrace others perhaps
worse. They go into exile iu a fat
distant land, where they will find
everything conflicting with their pre?
vious ideas, habits and customs. A
more sorrowful emigratiou is not re?
corded iu history, aud, of course, must
touch tho hearts and feelings of all.
And notwithstanding all this, it is
still wrong-wrong in principle, and
evincing a want of manhood and
moral courage. If ever there was a
time when tho South needed thc
strength, affection and clinging devo?
tion of lier sons, it is tho present.
Stricken by the fortunes of war,
bowed down und jr the privation aud
suffering arising from disasters of
almost every kind, the suuuy laud of
thc South appeals .silently but ear?
nestly to those who have stood by
her in her sorest trials, to stand by
her still, aud not strip her of her
sons, who, by all the ties of ma?
ternity, long association, devotion to
her ancient pride and glory, which
she justly felt aud claimed for har
long lino of heroes and statesmen,
should noter abandon her; but rather,
with endurance and fortitude, cling
the closer to her and her fortunes,
whatever they may be. It is little
short of moral cowardice, that men,
who did all that men could do to
bravo an adverse fate, for years past,
should now retreat from thc equally
patriotic duty ol' restoring their sec?
tiou to its former prosperity and
political equality. It may be touch?
ing to see ship-loads of voluntary
exiles leaving these shores; but they
caunot command our admiration, as
do those who remain behind, to en?
gage, under all the disadvantages
they may have io contend with, iu
tho great work of the South's recu?
peration, reconstruction, and iiual
and complote restoration.
HOLDEN HAS MET ILLS MATCH AT
LAST.-A sensible colored man in
Raleigh, was a listeuer at the Afri?
can Church, some time since, when
Mr. Holdeu addressed the colored
people there. His employer felt
some curiosity to know what the
speaker said on that occasion, and
requested the colored man to give
some account of it. He replied sub?
stantially ns follows:
"Well, sir, I listened to de speech,
but I coulil not tell you much about
it, for I couldn't help thinking all
the time and saying to him in inv
mind: You first fooled de old Whigs,
den you fooled de old Democrats,
den you fooled dc old Secessioners,
den you fooled Muss Zeb Yance,
den you fooled President Johnson.
Now, who you got to fool next? Why,
you thinks you'll fool de niggers; but,
sir, you'll neber fool dis oue."
We commend the above to tho at?
tention of those enterprising offico
huutiug patriots who are running
round day and night -especially al
night-endeavoring to mislead thc
freedman and array him in hostility
and bitterness to his former owner.
There is land enough at tho ttoutl:
for all, and it will yet be seen that il
is for tho interest of all that th?
barriers to its ownership and enjoy
mont should be completely done away
By parity of reasoning there is
property enough at tho North foi
all, and it may yet bo seen that il
is for tho interest of all that tin
barriers to its ownership aud enjoy?
ment should be completely done
away with. Ifow doos this suit?
MONET IX NEW YORK.-A cotem
porary says any amount of money
needed for .speculative purposes can
bo had in New York at a rato of inte?
rest much lower than has prevailed
for some time. Of course, there is a
scarcity of money in tho South,
but the reasou for that is, wo have
had unusually short crops, aud con?
sequently nothiug except cotton to
sell, which would cause a flow of
money in this direction, aud tho
greater portion realized from that
source has been expeudod in the
purchase of breadstuffs and . provi?
sions. Should we bo blessed with
good crops this year, tho South will
recuperate wonderfully. Tho wheat
promises well, and iu tho courso of
three months the farmers will be
scuding their surplus to markot.
The proceeds from this source will
furnish very great relief. The ease
which is already apparent in New
York will extend Southward as soon
as our crops are ready for the mar?
A MEASURE OF RELIEF.-The peo?
ple of Georgia, Tennessee and Mis?
sissippi are maturing a sehemo for
tho maintenance of women and chil?
dren of deceased Confederate sol?
diers. They propose to disposo of
large tracts of land in small lots in
tho Northern aud European markets,
aud appropriate ten per ceut. of thc
sales for the erection and support of
an asylum, which shall be opcu to all
soldiers' widows and orphans who are
unable to support themselves. The
business men of Memphis have sub?
scribed $100,000 iu aid of the enter?

ANOTHER RADICAL COMINO SOUTH. -
Foruey's Chronicle says:
Hon. William D. Kelley, of Penn?
sylvania, will leave Philadelphia on
Friday next, for a political tour iu
thc late rebel States. Ho will pro?
ceed to Wilmington, N. C., via
Goldsboro, and from Wilmington
direct to Beaufort, S. C. From
thence he will go to Savannah, Ga.,
speaking there, aud returning North
by way of Chariest ou and Columbia
S. C., aud thence to Greensboro,
Concord, Salisbury, Charlotte, Dan?
ville, and other points in the West?
ern part of the old North State.
Tho Michigan Legislature is con?
sidering the subject of preserving the
splendid forests of that State. They
supply so many lumber markets that
vast tracts are being stripped, and
scientilic men arc of opinion that cli?
mate changes are thereby induced,
crops aro deteriorating, thc winters
are more severe, fertilizing rains are
diminishing, and all these are be?
lieved to be partly caused by the
denudation of the forests. European
experience cou firms the idea that tho
destruction of forests tends to sterili?
ty. The proposed remedy is to ex?
empt forests from taxation, aud en?
deavor so to legislate ns to remove
the necessity for large uses of timber
MURDER.-Mr. Cornelius Newton
was brutally murdered ou Monday
night, about eight miles from this
place. A Mrs.. English, who was
with him at the time, was also mor?
tally wounded. They were riding
along the. road in a buggy, about U
o'clock at night, when some person
fired upon them with a gnu from tho
roadside. Mr. Newton lived a little
while, and was rational enough to
make declarations which implicate a
Mr. Leggett Quick, who has been
arrested and is now in jail. Mrs.
English is still alive, but is thought
to be beyond recovery.
I Bennettsoille Journal.
Napoleon was driving the other
day, from thc Tailleries to the Ex?
position buildiug in his wagonette,
attended by General Fleury, when
he was stopped in tho Hue de Grenelle
by the wretched and almost impassa?
ble condition of the streets. He got
down, discussed tho state of things
with some householders who were
standing at their shop doors, and,
after hearing all their complaints,
drove home. The next morning the
street was invaded bv ?JOO work?
men, and in a few hours everything
was restored to rights.
ARREST OP MR. STEPHEN CALHOUN
SMITH.-Wo regret to announce that,
on yesterday, Mr. Stephen Calhoun
Smith, a resident of this city, was
arrested for cutting the United States
Hun; on Saturday last. We have no

sider without excuse, but we are
sorry for the man, whom we knew as

his gallant conduct at the battle of
FOOD FOR THE SoUTn.-The Bal?
timore Gazette, of Saturday, says:
The United States?store-ship Supply
roached this port yesterday, for tile
purpose of taking m a cargo of pro?
visions for thc destituto people of
tho South. Thc Commissioners ap?
pointed by tho Legislature/will at
onco furnish the necessary'provi?
sions, aud she will sail without
Reports from Arkansas aro to tho
effect that while tho recent floods in
that State were very disastrous, tho
overflow will not prevent.tho putting
in of largo crops of cotton and corn.
While it iias been customary to plant
cotton in April, the best that was
raised lust yeur was not planted until
May. Should the summer provo n
dry one, tho crops will bo the better
for tho overflow of this spring.
A hnndsomo snit of clothes in

Thc State of Now York is before
its own Supreme Court as plaintiff
in n snit against tho Now Jersey
Central Railroad, involving several
millions of dollars, and arising from
a contested control of tho river front

Weehawken. The railroad has filled
up 10,000 acres laud, and the Stato
claims an infringement on its rights.
At a meeting of Republicans of
both races at Washington, on Friday
last, a strong attempt waa made to

who proposed it said he was advised
to do so by Senntor ?Sumner.
