Friday Morning, May 3,1867.
Thc Freedmen'? Meeting*. .
. Besides the moetings which have
taken place in this city, there have
been others held recently in various
Districts of tho State. It is highly
gratifying to seo the spirit manifested
at all of these meetings-that of a
perfeot accord botween both white
and colored who attend them, and
toke occasion to express their views.
The intelligent colored men who
assume tho leading part in these po?
litical movements, especially in this
State, all seem to bo convinced that
tho true policy of the newly enfran?
chised voters ?s to act with the white
men of their own section; while the
latter feel equally convinced that not
only policy but interest demands
that all tho rights and privileges con?
ferred upon the freedmen by the
laws of the country should not only
be respected, but sustained and pro?
tected, both in tho letter and spirit
of those laws.
In Marion, as we learn from the
Star, a large i number of tho colored
people assembled at tho Court House,
on Monday last, ar^L were addressed
by Gen. Scott, Agent of the Bureau
in this State, and tho Bev. Mr.
French. The Star says that asido
from Gen. Scott's construction of
law, his address contained much
good and no objectionable advice.
The remarks of the Rev. Mr. French,
the Star says, did much oredit to
bim os a representativo of the Chris?
tian church, and was truthful and
well received by both whito and co?
Col. "W. S. Mullins, well known in
our State as an able member of tho
Legislature, at tho request of the
colored mon present, followed the
abovo named speakers in the same
strain of good advice whiob they had
given. At night, both white and
colored citizens met at the Court
Ho ir1 o, and interchanged opinions on
the situation, freely and in a friendly
manner. The best of feeling pre?
vailed, and mach good is looked for
as the result.
In Sumter, General Scott also ad
dressed tho freedmen, tho purport of
bis remarks being much che same as
those he made in Marion. He ad
vised them of tho necessity of oduca
tion, in order to fit thom for tho pro
per discharge of the high and
responsible duties of citizenship
He spoke of their anxiety to procure
homesteads as natural, but also told
them that they should look to obtaip
them from the results ff their own
labor-they must be purchased by sae
ings from Oieir own earnings. This
meeting was also addressed by Judge
F. J. Moses, Dr. Witherspoon, J. S
Richardson, jr., A A. Gilbert and
other prominent white citizens and
by several of the freedmen present
In our sister State of North Caro
lina, we have similar gratifying ovi
dences of the existence of tho right
spirit among the freedmen. At Hali
fax, in that State, ono of thom
James H. Harris-addressed a largo
concourse, a few days ago. His
speech is represented by tho nows
paper of that town to havo been of
conciliatory and conservative charac
ter. Wo extract from tho report of
his remarks tho following paragraph
"Ho said he felt it his especial
duty to tell them that confiscation
was ouly a trap, set to catch their
votes. [Excitement. | That tho
Dutch and Irish boys in blue
fought for their pay, and not for
negro emaucipatiou. Who tells you
that the Goverumeut is going to giva
you the lands of your former masters
is a kuavo and a liar. If you think I
nm deceiving you, tho illusion will bo
very soon dispelled. [Hero tho most
intense excitement prevailed-voices
crying out, 'We want you to tell us
tho stark bare-footed truth.'] I came
hero to speak the truth, and I havo
spoken it. I have offended some, I
am aware, and to mo it is a matter of
indifference. Tho speaker concluded
by advising his hearers to plq?go L
their'jldkfs'to^tojue." . j
Another colored rna?ftsil>^fllrnsv ?
-addressed tho meeting,. and tb?
f?ll?wiug- ^mrngraph,from. an ab?
stract of Iris remarks, is ' s" flift of
good sense, that wo cannot forbear
publishing'!, for tl?o*bdn't$l ?f tho
freedmen iu this locality: W
?. "Ho said (among-otheV thingsUhnt
the negroes' duty is to labor. Poli?
tics was tho rock on which tho Union
was dissolved, aud I advise my race
to steer aloof from it. Ho said no
man who haddon, kind to him
should over havo any but his best
wishes. And his best friends, those
tried beforo and since tho war, aro
those with whom ho hud been raised,
and in %bose service be ljfcd spent
the happiest days of his life. Give
me, said he, the educated gentleman;
ho is our'friend by instinct. He
loved his old master, and felt towards
him as if he had been his father. He
would fight for himl Though ho
never worked for him while a slave, he
would labor for him now. He defied
any white man to exceed him in po
bteness. ? Ho thought politeness tho
sweetest and oheapest potato ever
offered in any market. He only ask?
ed oredit for what he had done. Ho
had waited on Confederate soldiers
while sick and wonnded. He did so
because he loved them."
Wo noto these demonstrations as
an important portion of tho history
of the times. We consider it, too,
os a matter of the gravest importance,
that tho impulses of the newly en?
franchised race, as well as their futuro
political action, should be given tho
proper direction. They should be
met half way, frankly and cordially,
by our people; be instructed and en?
lightened by them, and not by par
tizan- missionaries, sent out for tho
purpose, as to their rights and the
best mode of advancing their highest
interests in tho future. In this con?
nection, it is gratifying that tho
officials of the United States sta?
tioned among us are aiding and pro?
moting in the establishment of kindly
feelings between tho freedmen and
their former owners. Ignoring party
politics, they havo, on all proper oc?
casions, manifested their desire, while
engaged iu the business of recon?
struction under the laws of Congross,
to aid in perfecting the measure iu
tho most unobjectionable manner. It
is the duty of our own people to co?
operate heartily and cordially in the
SEEDS FOR THE SOUTH.-Gen.
Sickles will include the agents foi
the distribution of seeds in hit
registration orders. Mr. T. C.
Peters, who is the general agricul?
tural agent for distribution through
out the South, has already com?
to this State for the purpose o:
making arrangements for the estab
lishment of agencies, of which even
election precinct will havo one. Ai
endeavor will also be made t<
establish Agricultural Societies ii
each County or District, and witl
the aid of tho Legislatures, to forn
State Agricultural Institutes. Th
Yorkville Enquirer says:
This is a good idea, and if carrier
ont in a proper way, will add mato
rially to the wealtu of 'our country
Agricultural societies are powerfu
assistants iu the work of developini
the resources of a State or neighbor
hood. The interchange of idea
between farmers at such meetings
give an additional interest to th
pnrsuit of farming, as well as diffuse
valuable information among th
members. Wherever a flourishini
agricultural society is found, an im
proved system of farming, high cu]
tivatiou and superior intelligenc
will also be found. Farming has bc
come a science, and scientific know
lodge is necessary to make it j)ay it
highest profits for the least expend:
turo. Wo hopo tho objects aimed c
by Mr. Peters will not bo defente
by any backwardness or old-fogyist
on the part of our people.

Letter from Hon* B. S\ Perry.
We publish another lotter from
ex-Governor Parry, in to-day's issuo.
The position tuleen, and the argu?
ments ns?d by the Governor are
somewhat remarkable; bnt we will
reserve our comments until to-mor?
WHr-Wh.it Will Come of lt.
It is remarked as significant, that
some of the German papers have
already begun to discuss military
operations, as if war were actually at
hand between France and Prussia.
What attracted most attention nt
Paris, was an article] in tho Gazette, ot
Northern Germany, which says:
"In o war with Franco, ;tho German
armies will have to operate on two
principal points-Alsace and Lor?
raine, Belgium and the lower Rhine,
separated by the hilly country be?
tween the Moselle and tho Meuse.
In case of an offensize attack against
tho West or the upper and middle
Hinno, it would bo necessary to
secure the important lino of ope?
rations, Mayonce, Kaiserslauten and
Motz, which leads into tho valley of
tho Marne. This lino passes through
a net-work of numerous French for?
tresses, of which the most important
is Metz, a place of the first rank, and
yet of slight importance, if Luxem?
burg, distant seven miles from it, is
in our hand and keeps it in check.
Tho holder of Luxemburg is master
of the valley of the Sarre, which is
only closed by Sarrelouis; but this
valley cuts at right angles the lino of
operations already mentioned of an
army entering from the middle Rhine
"If, on tho other bund, Luxem?
burg is a French fortress, it is,
especially in concert with Metz, a
daugerfor the lines of communication
of that army, and moreover, it
would forco it to weaken itself con?
siderably by detachments for invest?
ing. A Prussian Luxemburg would
then bo for us a necessity; a French
Luxemburg would menace our lines
of oommnnioation on the right flank.
The possession of Luxemburg by the
French would also be a danger for
the left flank of a German army
advancing from the lower Rhino into
Belgium. Four lines of railroad, of
which the point of juncture is Luxem?
burg, give to that fortress a special
importance, by reason of the facilities
afforded by railroads in actual war?
fare. These lines are-1. Nancy
Metz, Luxemburg; 2. Luxemburg,
Namur, Brussels; 3. Luxemburg, Spa,
Liege; 4. Mayence, Sarrebruck, Sar?
relouis, Tr?ves, Luxemburg. The
first two run parallel to the French
frontier, touoh several fortified
places, and are in direct communi?
cation with the central point, Paris,
us well as with the South and North
of tho country.
"The strategy of the French army
would be greatly favored by this rail?
road parallel to the frontier; and its
displacement at will, from the South
to the North and vice versa, would bo'
easy. Tho Luxemburg-Liege line
runs parallel to the Prussian frontier,
on tho Belgo-Luxomburg line, con?
nects tho valleys of tho Moselle and
tho Meuse by the shortest way, and
cuts the Cologne-Liege-Brussels line
near Verviers. To Luxemburg and
the junction point of these three
lines must be attachod, in a French
point of view, great importance.
Fourthly, the important net-work
connecting tho valleys of the Rhine,
the Nahe, the Sarre and tho Moselle,
debouches on Luxentburg, and on it
is tho only line of communication by
rail of the theatre of war in Lorraiuo
and Belgium. It is of capital im?
portance for the Germans. Tho
great importance of this place for us
would be increased by the completion
of the projected line, Treves-Cologne
and Treves-Coblentz, by which
LtiXchibttrg could be put in direct
communication (with thc strongest
places on the banks of the Rhine,
tami serve as an advanced post. Thus
the question relative to a fortress so
well suited both for attack and do
fence should be tho object of serious
L?TEllESTINO TO NORTHERN STOCK?
HOLDERS IN SOUTIIEHN RAI [.no ADS.
Wo learn from tho Now York Times,
of Friday, that a caso of much inte?
rest was tried on the previous day,
before Judge Davis. The Times says:
"The action ie entitled, 'Wm. H.
Scott vs. Tho Central Railroad and
Bunking Company of Georgin,' and
was brought to recover the sum of
$5,440, tho aggregate amount of cer?
tain dividend? made by tho company
between July, 1861, and January,
1805. Tho plaintiff is tho assignco of
eighty-five shares of tho company's
stock, formerly owned by Mr. Edw'd
Crowell. Tho defence wu s two?
fold-first, that no demand had Leen
made; and secondly, that the company
offered to pay in Confederate money,
which offer was not accepted. Tba
Court held that tho defendants lina
waived a demand by writing n certain
letter, and decided to render judg?
ment for all the dividends declared,
Wcept tho two or threo last named,
in which, by tho resolution of tho
company, it was particularly stated
that tho money was to bo paid in Con?
federate notes or bonds. Tho caso
will be taken to tho general tenn."

THE NORTHERN ORATORS FOR THE
NSOT^TT?.-The New York Express has
the following remarks upon tho gen?
tlemen now visiting the South na po?
"It is a suggestive fact that tho
radical orators who aro now over-run?
ning tho South, augliug for the freed?
men's votes, belong to n class that
took good care to keep away from the
South when volunteers were wanted
up here to go there to put down the
rebellion. Senator Wilson is ono. of
that class. Wilson raised a regiment,
it is true, but some how or other ho
never got 'to the front' with it.
"If tho real fighting men ou both
sides could be got together, ro-uuion
in fact, as well as in name, would be
tho result; but if demagogues aro
thus left to run loose, peace and har?
mony will never be restored."
( FOMENTING DISCORD.-The Dan?
ville (Va.) Times says:
"It is a horrible crime to array
one class of the community against
tho other-the blacks against tho
whites. No oue but an enemy to
mankind-a pirate, a robber, a devil
incarnate-would do it. Wherever
the military authorities discover a
mean, low whito man at this diaboli?
cal work, they ought to arrest him.
If they will attend to this matter as
promptly ns we have reason to be?
lieve they will, in most places, wo
shall be greatly obliged to them."
TUE FREEDMEN.-We hoar no com?
plaints from any of our planters in
reference to tho conduct njid work of
tho freedmen. Many of them say
the labor so far thin year is nearly ns
effective as when we bad slavery.
Our own observation is that the
whites and blacks in this District aro
co-operating heartily with each other
in endeavoring to make good crops,
and derive as much profit from them
respectively ns possible. If this state
of things continues, we predict that
there will be nearly ns much cotton
made in the District this year as was
mado prior to the war.

THE CONCERT LAST NIOUT.-High
os our expectations were raised, when

nothing in saying tbat they were in
every respect fulfilled, if not sur?
passed, both in regard of Herr Carl
Feiningor, as violinist, aud of Fraeu
leiu Feininger, ns cantatrice. The
audience, which was large, notwith?
standing the scarcity of greenback-,
and embraced tho elite of Columbia,
were unanimous in praise and ap?
plause, and will bear us out in claim
ing that the concert was a brilliant
Herr Feininger's doigter-finger?
ing-of tho violin is perfect, and the
consummate easo aud skill with which
he reproduces upon its striugs every
thought aud feeling, however pro?
found or subtle or fleeting, are most
wonderful, and such us to place him,
beyoud dispute, in the first rauk of
artistes on thc American continent.
Of him, it may bc said, as Boonie
somewhere says of the immortal
Paganini, ou his debut iu Paris,
namely, that it is impossible to con?
vey in words tho impression he pro?
duces-ono could bul play after him
on his oton violin, if one wcro but so
fortunato as to possess it. Since M.
Yicuxtenips, we have heard none to
equal Herr Carl Feiuinger. This is
extravagant praise, we know-but it
is none tho less merited, for all that :

think, not more to Herr FeiuiugOr's
