Action In Needed.
Tho New York Times lins nu article
which has attracted our attention, ns
one thnt is full of meuuing, and that
ought to receive tho grave considera?
tion of the Southern people, in the
peculiar condition in which they are
now placed. We will endeavor to
condense thoso views of tho Times,
which strongly suggest to our mind
that it is tho duty of our people to be
vigilant and active in tho approach?
ing rc-organization of their State
The nrticlo to which wo refer is
elicited by tho proceedings of a meet?
ing held in North Carolina, which
adopted resolutions in favor of con?
fiscation. Tho Times, although a
representativo of tho Republican
party, says that it ?grecs with its
leading party co temporaries, which
have declared, with very great una?
nimity, that confiscation forms no
part of tho party platform, and which
repudiate iu energetic terms tho per?
sistent attempt of Mr. Stevens, Gen.
Butler and other nihilists to forco it
upon tho party.
So far as Congress is concerned,
and tho majority of tho Republicans
in that body, thero is little to appre?
hend from that quarter, if tho people
of tho Southern States reconstruct
promptly nuder the recent lawe of
Congress. But the dauger lies herc;
and it is to this point tho Times more
particularly refers-that a confisca?
tion movement in tho South, as indi?
cated by the meeting alluded to above,
may become formidable. The Times
Bays-and we have abundant evidence
of tho fact in their sending party
missionaries among us-that tho
ul trais ts of tho Republican party aro
determined to build up a party in the
South fully in accord with themselves.
Their plan is to consolidate thc negro
voto, which, with tho help of the
profaning "original Union men" of
tho South, they think will bo suffi?
cient to over-bear the great body of the
whites who aro not disfranchised. It
is upon this that they rely for success.
Tho Times says that, if they can get
tho whole negro vote, keeping it com?
pact, manageable, and wholly subject
to their control, they feel confident
that tho Southern States will becomo
moro radical than tho Northern.
This is tho belief of a moderate
Republican journal, aud the South?
ern missionary tours of sundry Se?
nators and Congressmen of the party
confirm it. The same paper states
that this faction relics upon confisca?
tion to secure the results in view, and
adds tlie following paragraph, which
should be hooded by the Southern
"A promise of a homestead, to bo
taken from tho whites and given gra?
tuitously to every colored voter, will
be u most formidable weapon for the
accomplishment of their object. It
is precisely the kind of argument
likely to provo most potent with the
class of voters whom they address.
They aro all landless, and can scarcely
be oxpected to remain blind to such
glittering expectations. And wo may
rely upon it, tho schemo will bo
pressed with desperate and remorse?
less audacity. Tho men engaged in
it are not men easily daunted by fear
of consequencos, still less by scruples
as to the character of tho means em?
ployed. Neither Mr. Stevens nor
Gen. Butler is likely to halt in the
execution of such a schemo from tho
four that it may Jead to a war of races
or plunge tho South into hopeless
and remidless ruin. The character
and temper of thc men to go South
ns their agents and missionaries
Senator Nye, Judgo Kelly and Gen.
Logan, for example-is by no menus
It is particularly to bring this
warning before our people that wo
refer at this time to tho articlo of our
New York cotemporary. That jour?
nal thinks, however, that there aro
two grounds of reliance against the
success of such a scheme, and they
nre, briefly, that such a basis of action
by any party would unite the whole
vote of the South against it; this, tho
Times thinks, would produce a re?
action at tho North, where tho peo?
ple are opposed lo it, us would work
tho overthrow of tho party adopting
it as its policy.
This might or might nollie; but
tho articlo nuder notico ought par?
ticularly to rou.so tho people of our
Hcotion from any apathy or indiffer?
ence they might bo disposed bo in?
dulge in. Especially in this ttbito
uhonld tho old voters use their liest
endeavors, and persistently seek to
effect a perfect union with the newly
enfranchised class. They aro now nil,
in every respect, citizons of the samo
commonwealth, and all should uuito
in promoting her best interests, by
opposing evil machinations, either at
homo or coming from abroad. It ie
no timo 'for indifference now, and
least of all is it any time for inaction,
or for that suicidal policy which
would create divisions among our?
selves, by pressing upon the attention
of the people nuy question that would
distract them, and thus nflord an
easy entrance for mischievous de
sigus and tho operations of their
originators and promoters. A con?
vention will be bold in this State,
whether the whites who oro not dis?
franchised declino to vote, or vote
against it. Is it not evident, there?
fore, that it is the part of wisdom,
patriotism and prudence, as well as
it is their highest duty, to uuito in
sending tho best mon, who are quali?
fied, to that convention?
Thc organic law of the State has to
be revised and remodelled; and for
tho 8ako of the future weal of the
State, and for the best interests of
ourselves and those who may come
after us, it is of tho utmost impor?
tance that such a work should not bo
entrusted to designing or incompe?
tent men. Let, then, union aud
harmony prevail in tim work of re?
construction; and when registration
is ordered, let all who uve qualified
register and vote for those men who
havo the interest and welfare of the
State and her people most at heart.

MEMORIAL CEREMONIES AT NEW
DERK, N. C.-PROCESSION PROHIBIT?
ED.-The carrying out of tho pro?
gramme of the Newborn Memorial
Association, last Thursday, was, as
regarded a procession, prohibited hy?
the military. But, at 5 o'clock p. m.,
a large concourso of citizens assem?
bled in the cemetery to witness tho
laying of tho corner-stone of the
vault prepared to receive the remains
of the Confederate dead. The New?
born Journal Boya:
Tho ceremonies were imposing and
appropriate; the prayer by tho Kev.
Mr. Vans was a model one, tho ode
sung by a few of tho ladies und gen?
tlemen was solemn, yet touchingly
beautiful, tho oration was chaste,
admirably written, and delivered in
a stylo well suited to tho occasion.
At tho close of tho oration, the
persons selected descended into the
vault, and deposited within the ce?
mented pillar the followiug articles:
A copy of tho Holy Bible; first Con?
federate flag; second Confederate
flag; Confeelerate battle-flag; photo?
graphs of Davis, Leo nntl Johnston ;
a roll of officers composing first Cubi
net of Provisional Uoverument; the
names of the officers of tho Ladies'
Memorial Association; the names ai
tho Mayor and City Council; Confe?
derate money of all denominations; ii
Mexicau dollar coutributeel by a Con?
federate soldier; army anel navy but?
tons; a United States silver half dol
lar, and other small articles, of which
wo were unable to secure a list. Then
the stone was capped, anel securely
cementcel, tho doxology was sung,
tho benediction was pronounced, une
tho large anel attentive crowel retiree"
from tho scene.
CAPABILITIES OP TUB SOI-TH.-Tin
New York 2?r/>raut says:
The South have iron, coal, slate
and marble beneath tho soil, and :
climate capable of every variety o
production upon ita surface. Tin
Southern States aro nearer tho West
anel one of them nearer Kuropo, thai
we are. Their presont prospects on
blighted by two causes-that of tin
war, and the radical supremacy ii
Congress, which has covereel tho lane
like A mildew. But thoro must bo ai
end to all this, and tho enel will b
seen just as soon as the question o
reconstruction is settled. Tho les.?
for a time, tho South hius to do witl
politics, and tho moro it has to el
with its material interests, the better
If tho North -will bo content with
nou-iuterfcrenco with Southern so
ciety-if it will let tho people, whit
and black, act in their own interests
if it ceases all political proselyting, i
will soon fiuel labor moro settleel
education inoro diffused, ngricnlturi
prosperity moro general, and til
country mole prosperous.
The capabilities of tho South ttl
iaimense, and ought at once t
attract tho attention of Norther
capital. There is no leasou wh
double last year's cottnu crop shoul
not bc produced, and three times th
corn and wheat and rice that wi
harvested in 18015. Tho South we
comes all capitalists, all kinds <
labor, every means of thrift, wcalt
anel industry. And it is impossib!
to help tho South without helpin
ourselves, anel especially tho truel
and commerce of this great city."

Esq., Charleston, S. C.
THE MAY PARTY.-Reader, were
you ever at a May party? I do nut
mean ono of those line growu-ujv
young lady affairs, which wealth pro?
vides and fashion coutrols-where
artificial flower?, artificial smiles, pre?
mature coquettes, flirtations, lace,
ribbon and perfumery crowd ont
everything simple, natural, joyous
and loveable-where you hear no
clear, ringing, child-like laugh, see
no involuntary hop, skip aud jump
where you see beautiful set smiles,
graceful, lady-like movements, trail?
ing skirts and prodigious waterfalls.
Everybody has, some time or other,
witnessed ono of those stately affairs.
I mean nono of these, but a real
school-girl's May party, got up by the
teacher-friend, who, in her heart, has
no motive but to mako tho children
happy, and to draw happiness to her?
self in seeing them so. I mean a gay,
joyous, noisy crowd of happy,
healthy, sinless little children and
young girls, such as met together, on
Thur.sday.afternoon, at Miss McGow?
an's school-revelling in Howers, mu?
sic, confectionery and fun.
Thoy numbered fifty, and sure I
am that, if Miss McGowan has not
been singularly fortunato in securing
so largo a number from among tho
most intelligent and prettiest behaved
children in Columbia, she must have
a wondrous faculty for making them
so; and an observer can quickly as?
certain that "the mighty magic" she
hus used is love, assisted hy a keen
perception of character, which ena?
bles her almost to read tho hearts of
tho littlo ones under her tuition, and
adapt her method to them. She
glided about through tho merry
crowd, giving to some affectionate
smiles, to others words of praise or
encouragement, and to others little
reproofs, which she tried to utter in
a stern manner, but she had too evi?
dently forgotton tho schoolmistress
in the sympathizing Mond, ami her
scolding was, in every case, a failure.
And the procession through the
streets! Oh, von fashionable, grown?
up young ladies, with your fantastic
littlo plasters, instead of bonnets;
your big, ugly, heavy-looking protu?
berance on tho back of your heads;
your long, coarse-looking black chains
dangling about in your way; your ri?
diculous tilters; your short sacques,
without any shape; your street
sweeping skirts, and yonr many other
abominations by way of dress-you
must yield the pulu, of graco and
beauty to these little children and
young girls; for they far out-shone
you all, and unqualified exclamations
of pleasure and nd? liration greeted
them everywhoro front many
