* A Mistake.
The Louisville Courier notices that
certain editors nt the North affect a
great deal of surprise nt tho action of
tho Southern people with reference
to the question of reconstruction
under the recent Act of Congress,
and says that somo of these editors
pretend to see in that action a vital _
and fundamental change in Southern
sentiment. The Courier takes issue
with these editors, and avers that
not one of thom really believes that
any real change has token place in
the Sontheim mind as regards the
jnstico, constitutionality or propriety
of the Congressional legislation.
There may be, and doubtless there
is, some truth in this statement of
the Courier; for when the people of
the Southern States had any opinion
in the matter, they rejected a more
moderate mensuro-the constitutional
amendment-than tho present law.
They returned it to its originators,
with their flat refusal, as they were not
willing to have any part or lot in?ony
such legislation for themselves. This
rejection brought upon them the
present measures, and they cannot
now reject; bnt this very position,
with tho former result of rejection
before their eyes, admonishes them
that not only opposition, but mere
passivity of action, in relation to tho
present measures, will as surely be
made the pretext for imposing terms
This is one reason, at least, why
the Southern people, by adopting the
action prescribed by tho recent laws,
and why their leading men, disfran?
chised themselves, advise them to
that course. It is evident that the
temper of Congress, constituted as it
now is, must not be further tried in
this way. When they had the free
choice of adopting or refusing in the
former case, they chose the latter;
now, when they are permitted only a
limited participation in the work of
reconstruction, they choose to avail
themselves of the privilege. And
this springs not from a base fear, but
an earnest desire to see peace restored
between the two sections of the coun?
try and the re-instatement of their
Senators and Repr?sentatives in the
Depending on this restoration and
political reconstruction, they well
know, is tho future prosperity of the
Sonth. She needs everything from
outside her limits; her wealth has
been swept away, her labor system
over-turned, and the very means to
develop her immense resources put
beyond ber reaoh. Tho South re?
quires, at the present time, capital,
population and labor. She has with
. in her own limits productive energies,
but these are crippled and languish?
ing for lack of the very elements we
have named. These, it is but too evi?
dent, 8ho will never obtain until her
States are restored to their former
political status, and become au inte?
gral part of tho Union, and their
people living under the same Consti?
tution and laws as those of the other
States. No man should hesitate to
aid iu, and least of all, should he at?
tempt to obstruct tho progress to?
wards this desirable consummation.
Wno AHE DISFRANCHISED ?-A G eor
gia cotomporary has received, in ro
ply to tho above inquiry, from a
friend in Atlanta, what purports to
be a semi-official declaration of ( ? ene
ral Pope's construction of this clause
of the military bill. It is as follows:
All officers or persons who held po?
sitions connected with tho judicial
department of a State Government,
such as lawyers, clerks, sheriffs, coro?
ners and the mayors and aldermen
of cities where their charters declare
them ex officio justices of the peaco,
as well as judges and justices of the
peace, are included in the term judi?
cial officers; and if a man held and
exercised any one of those offices or
positions, and took an oath as such
to support and defend tho Constitu?
tion, and afterward got his own freo
will and consent to throw off tho Go?
vernment of tho United States for
the sake of the Southern Confederacy,
he is disfranchised by tho law. But
oven if a man did hold one of these
offices before the war, and did nothing
of his own free will and accord to
throw off the United States Govern?
ment, ho is not disfranchised.
Mon LAW IN KENTUCKY.-The
Louisville Courier, of tho 80th,
makes mention of a terrible affair in
Jessamine County, in that State
the killing of a white boy by a negro,
and the subsequent shooting of a
negro, who was confined in jail, and
the hanging of his accomplice.
Let Vs litre In Hope.
Wo notice, by the statements of
some of our cotemporaries, that any
amount of money needed can bo bad
in New York, at a rate of interest
much lower than has prevailed for
Borne time. The reason why some of
this redundant capital does not find
its way South, in n legitimate way
that is, in the course of trade-is
simply that wo have nothing to com?
mand it. The only product ^e had
to dispose of for cash was cotton, and
the supply of that staple is being ra?
pidly exhausted. The money already
received has been spent for bread
stuffs, provisions, agricultural imple?
ments, See., and, therefore, th? South
is very poor just now.
But the wheat harvest, in a fow
months, will furnish a surplus supply
of that product to the markets, and
will afford considerable relief. Later,
what cotton may bo made will be
brought to market, so that, by Octo?
ber or November, our people may
begin to Beo day-light in a pecuniary
point of view, and if everything goes
on smoothly, and wo can live, even
scantily, until then, wo aro con?
vinced that our condition will be
vastly improved, and the promise ol
the future become considerably
brighter. But to insure this, will
require the constant practico of in?
dustry and economy by the Southern
THE EUBOPEAN SITUATION.-Th?
New York Times, ot Thursday, says
Well-informed Germans in this oitj
have little faith in tho London Con
terence as a means of restoring tin
pacific relations of Prussia ant
France. Their reasoning on tin
point is ingenious and plausible
France, they say, declares before
baud that it does not desire an oxton
sion of French territory. It ma;
therefore be expected to ask tha
Prussia shall give a similar pledge
But Prussia does desire and will hav
an extension of its territory, in pui
suance of the policy which aims t
secure German unity by absorption
Tho neutralization of Luxemburg
supposing it to bo conceded, doe
not dispose of the question, sine
tho determination of Prussia to pr?
vent the annexation of the Duchy b
France is not greater than tho desit
of Franco to prevent a further ir
crease of Prussian power in cont;
nental affairs. While, then, a true
may follow tho negotiations in Lot
don, the German opinion is, that tb
occurrence of hostilities betwee
Franco and Prussia is simply a que:
tion of time, the plans of either ii
volving points at variance with tl
plans of the other. Besides, a quai
rel between Prussia and France wi
afford Russia an opportunity for r<
opening the Eastern question, whic
slumbers, but never sleeps, in tl
councils of the Czar.
SENATOR WILSON'S TOUR,-Tl
New York Times (Republican) says:
"Senator Wilson's Southern toi
seems to bo a case of great cry ar
little wool. The flock surrounc
him, but there is no shearing don
and ho is likely to come back empt
handed. Tho blacks listen to hie
but wondai* - what' all the pother
about. The whites let bim alon
and have not paid him tho comp!
ment of getting angry at anythii
he has said. He has rated them
his heart's content, and they he
him with civility, if not with respet
and then Mr. Wilson packs up t
stock of platitudes and diatribes, ai
takes himself off unnoticed to t
next town. It seems rather dull sc
of work. It is not, we may be sui
exactly what the Senator bargain
for. If there- had been a distut
ance anywhere, what a theme it won
have supplied him with-what
martyr he would have returned!
it is, he comes back in the positi
of one who thought to move the w
verse and finds that he has not ma
so much stir as a gadfly in summ
The Southern people soon found c
that it was not an earthquake 01
whirlwind which had come arno
them, but only a reed shaken by 1
wind. And we say that this is v<
discouraging for poor Mr. Wils<
and wo hope he will bear up brav<
under his adversities."

FIRE.-At half-past 12 o'clock, last
night, tho alarm was sounded, and
smoke seon issuing from the building
on the North-east corner of King aud
Wentworth streets. Tho lower story
was occupied by Mrs. Weinberg as a
fancy worsted store, and by Messrs.
Phill lips Si McDowell as a crockory
store. Tho fire originated in the rear
of the latter establishment, but nmdt -
considerable headway before disco?
vered. The firemen wero promptly
ou thu ground, and tho Hook and.
Ladder Company hud their ladders,
up in a short time. The fi?mes wem
confined to tho portion of tho- house
where the firo originated, but the
whole building was deluged with
water. Messrs. Phillips & McDowell
woro insured for $3,000 in tho
Charleston Insurabco and Trust Com?

insurance on her stock. The build?
ing, which belouged to the cstato of
Cohen, was not insured. The upper
portion of tho house was occupied by
