What h BI been Done..
Somo of tho New York pnpors ure
writing on tho subject of what tho
Northern business interests tire suf?
fering from the political condition of
the South. The New York Express
hos an article on this subject, in
whioh it takes tho grouud that the
greatest evil inflicted, both upon tho
negro and white men of tho South,
was tho cotton tax upon Southern
labor. It says that while Congress
failed to lay any tax upon tho North?
ern staples-wheat, comoye, barley?
oats, ?fcc.-it selected out and inflict?
ed a most oppressive and unjustifiable
tax upon an exclusive Southern pro:
It then points out the injuries in?
flicted on the business men and ca?
pitalists of tho North, who had ad?
vanced money to planters to hire tho
freed nogro to raiso cotton, and says
that, from various causes, disorgani?
zation of labor, ?fcc, but most decid?
edly from the burdon of this tax, tho
crop hos not paid expenses, and the
advances cannot bc returned by the
Southern to the Northern man. Tho
Evjircss states, as a fact, that ono
firm in that city "has over $2,000,000
in outstanding accounts in the South,
which could bave boon collected if
tho cotton crop had been as product?
ivo for tho past two years as it was
under tho old system of labor.
Another New York journal says:
"Since the war closed, over ?5,000,
"000 have boen invested in tho plant?
ing interests of Mississippi, Louisi?
ana and Alabama, by the firm
represented by Gen. P. ,T. Herron,
and it is to bo presumed that but
little has boen realized on tho amount
invested. This is but a titho of tho
Northern capital that has gone South
to develop tho country, and which as
yet has not given a return."
Tho Express, iu the last sentence,
gives us an intimation of the true
cause of tho falling off in the amount
of Southern products. "Thu old sys?
tem of labor" has been suddenly
swopt away, and with it tho produc?
ing power of the South, to a large
extent. The investments made, even
by Northern men-tho reputed, or,
rather, self-arrogated friends of the
freedmen-havo utterly failed under
tho now system, and it will take
many years for tho Southern States
to reach their former productiveness.
Nevertheless, with the removal of the
tex, tho settlement of political diffi?
culties, and a cessation of tho med?
dling interference of Northern politi?
cians with tho freedmen, wc believe
tho South would speedily recuperate,
and in a few years, when, being thus
left alone, she will have replenished
lier means and appliances for its pro?
duction, and her laborers return to
their duties on tho plantation, undis?
turbed by political harangues or tho
obligations of leagues or other politi?
cal secret societies, tho amount of
cotton raised would soon approximate
to its former production. This expe?
riment of non-interference with the
freedmen and his political tendencies
is well worth trying by tho Northern

NOT OPPOSED TO ASK INO ron A
PARDON.-The Washington . corres?
pondent of the New York Herald
It is now. said 'that Jefferson Davis
is not averse to petitioning President
Johnson for a pardon. Tho state?
ment published before, to tho effect
that tho ex-rebel President was too
proud to acknowledge tho error of
his ways, and too lofty to stoop to
the humiliation of a petition, would,
therefore, seem to bo erroneous. I
am informed that Mr. Davis lately
told a prominent Louisianian that ho
. would gladly suo for pardon, if he
could only think his effort would
provo a success. President Johnson,
it is behoved, would willingly grant
a full pardon to tho fallen chief on
tho presentation of a proper petition.
I havo to-day seen a copy of a peti?
tion, signed by soveral Southern men
of tho Sharkey Monroe st amp, praying
Executivo clemency in behalf of Mr.
Davis. No radical names aro attached
to tho paper, all thc leading Senators
and Representatives having refused
to have anything to do with tho
movement. President .Johnson, it is
said, cares nothing for this omission,
expressing tho opinion that Lo alone
hos tho power to decido tho matter,
and that ho intonds to do just as his
own convictions of justice and pro?
priety dictate. Paul Bagley, tho en?
thusiastic pardon manager, who has
travoled all over the country for tho
purpose of agitating tho question of
Mr. Davis' pardon, has charge of tho
petition referred to, and has forward?
ed it to Canada, with the hope of ob?
taining a spocial potition from tho
chief party interested.
Reconstruction In thu State.
The Richmond Examiner hos an
article on political affairs ia this
State, from which we extract:
?Such of the people of South Caro
liria as feel called on to possess politi?
cal opinions, at this time, af o divid?
ing themselves into what may, per?
haps, be called tho Orr and Perry
parties, upon tho question of recon?
struction-both agreeing in the inde?
fensibility of tho Polandizing- bills,
but tho ono counselling a co-opera?
tion with tho Republicans in carrying
them out; while tho other-the fol?
lowers of Gov. Perry-proclaim their
preference for perpetual military
control over the Haytian Govern?
ment with which South Carolina must
bo cursed, under the practical work?
ings of these acts.
It appears to us, with all defereuco
to tho views of tho very distinguished
leaders of theso two parties, that
thoy oro wasting their energies on a
question that has not yet orison.
Wo aro called on to consider very
variant propositions at different
stages of this great political revolu?
tion-questions so entirely indepen?
dent of each other thnt-it is not only
' unnecessary but altogether iuexpo
dient to consider them together.'
A man may very well tako tho ne?
cessary stops to insure his right of
suffrago without over designing to
exorcise it. He may resolve, also, to
exorcise it, without, at this time, de?
termining whether he will vote for or
against a convention, much less foi
what particular candidate he shall
cast his ballot. And although a con?
vention bc agreed on, ho may very
well reserve the question what action
ho shall take on a constitution, thc
provisions of which no living man
can foresee. Many reasons conspire
to commend the application to om
case of thu maxim, "moko basti
slowly," and chief among them is UM
very manifest reaction that is taking
placo at the North. At present, tlu
people of tho South have but om
matter connected with reconstruotioi
to consider, and that is thc propriety
A natural indignation at the eutin
system-tho disgust which every free
man must feel at its flagrant infrac
tious of almost all the rights whicl
the world has regarded as peculiar ti
our form of political administration
and, lastly, a desire to avoid all rc
sponsibility for the anarchy that im
pends, have driven many men to th
resolve to declino registration, mu
thus formally and finally sever thoi
connection with the defilements c
It is'impossible to imagine a mor
fatal delusion. It is worse-it is
disgraceful one. It is throwing dow
our arms in the presence of tho eu(
my. It is a wicked abandoning i
our friends, who have rosolved t
fight with what weapons they hav<
for freedom. It is playing into th
hands of radicalism.
Let us be admonished by the eas
of New Orleans and Washington. I
tho former city, tho apathy of th
people had given the absolute contri
of the vote of almost every ward t
tho blacks; and nothing but theordc
of the President to prolong tho tim
of registration prevented the consun
motion of tho outrage.
In Washington, however, the mi
chief is completed, and it is beyon
tho power of any authority, as
would appear, to save the whil
voters of that city from tho cons
quonces of their foolish resolve 1
decline a registry.
If this is not to bo the fate of tl:
South, every citizen, old and youui
who is qualified, should register, wi
is eutitled by leave of our masters 1
that privilege. Register, and ye

disfranchisement for Virginia.
When that day comos, every voil
and vote will be needed; but that is
question of the future. Suflice it f
the present to say, that without I
gistry you ure as impotent as tl
dogs nt yonr door to strike a blow f

Union League of Now York. We
BY THESE PRESENTS GREETING :
To Messrs. George W. Blunt, John A.
Kennedy, and forty others, members
of the Union League Club.
GENTLEMEN: I was favored, on
the 16th instant, by an official
noto from our ever-courteous Pre?
sident, John Jay, notifying me
that a requisition hud been presented
to him for "a special meeting of tho
club, at an early day, for the purpose
of tnkiug into consideration the con?
duct of Horneo Greoley, a member of
tho club, who has becomo n bonds?
man for Jefferson Davis, lato chief
oflicor of tho rebel Government."
[Mr. Greeley then quotes from the
Tribune, to show that, from tho day
of General Loo's surrender, to tho
day of tho assassination of Lincoln,
ho had advocated clemency and for?
giveness towards tho "ex-rebels. "J
That appalling calamity, ho goes
on to say, seemed in an instant to
curdle all tho milk of human kind?
ness in twenty millions of American
breasts. At once, insidious efforts
wcro set on foot to turn tho fury thus
engonderod against mo, because of
my pertinacious advocacy of mercy
to thc vanquished. Chancing to enter
tho club-house thc next (Saturday)
evening, I received a full broadside
of your scowls, ere we listened to a
clerical harangue, intended to provo
that Mr. Lincoln had been provi?
dentially removed because of his no?
torious leanings to clemoncy, iu order
to make way for a successor who
would give thc rebels a full measure
pf stern justice. I was soon made
to comprehend that I had no sympa?
thizers-or none . who dared seem
such-in your crowded assemblage.
And some maladroit admirer having,
a few days afterward, made the club
a present of my portrait, its bare re?
ception was resisted in a speech from
the chair by your then president-a
i speech whoso vigorous invective was
justified solely by my pleadings for
lenity to the rebels.
At once, a howl of derision and
rage was sent up from every side
against me by the little creatures
whom God, for some inscrutable pur?
pose, permits to edit a majority of
our minor journals, echoed by a yell
of 'Stop my paper!' from thousands
of imperfectly instructed renders of
tho Tribune. Ono impudent puppy
wrote me to answer, categorically,
whether I was or was not in favor of
hanging Jeff. Davis, "adding that I
must stop his paper, if I were not!
Scores volunteered assurances that I
was defying public opinion-that
most of my readers were against me
as if I could bo induced to write what
they wished said rather than what
they needed to be told. * *
Gentlemen, I shall not attend your
meeting this evening. I have an en?
gagement out of town, and shall koop
it. I do not recognize you as calla?
ble of judging or even fully appre?
hending mo. You evidently regard
me as a weak sentimentalist, misled
by a maudlin philosophy. / arraign
you as narrotO'tninded blockheads, who
would like to be useful to a great and
good cause, but d?nyt know how. Your
attempt to base a great, enduring
party on tho hate and wrath necessa?
rily engendered by a bloody civil war
is as though you should plant a co?
lony on an iceberg which had some?
how drifted into a tropical ocean. I
tell you, here, that, out of a life ear?
nestly devoted to the good of human
kind, your children will select my
going to Richmond and signing that
bail-bond ns the wisest act, and will
feel that it did more for freedom and
humanity than all of you were com?
petent to do, though you had lived
to tho ago of Methuselah. .
I ask nothing of yon, thou, but that
you proceed to your end by a direct,
frank, manly way. Don't slide off
into a mild resolution of censure, but
move tho expulsion which you pur?
posed, and which I deserve, if I de?
serve any reproach whatever. All I
care for is, that you mako this a
square, stand-up fight, and record
your judgment by yeas and nays. I
care not how many vote with me, nor
how many vote against me; for I
know that the latter will repent it in
dust and ashes before three years
have passed. Understand, onco for
all, that I dare you and defy you, and
that I propose to fight it out on thc
linc that I havo hold from tho day of
Leo's surrender. * * *
I give you fair notice that J shall
urgu the re-enfranchisement of those
now proscribed for rebellion, so soon
as I shall feel confident that this
course is consistent with thefrecdom
of tho blacks and tho union o? the
republic, and that I shall demand a
recall of all now in exile only for par?
ticipating in the rebellion, whenever
tho country shall havo been so tho?
roughly pacified that its safety will
not thereby be endangered. And so,
gentlemen, hoping that yon will
henceforth comprehend me somewhat
butter than you havo done, I remain,

He was kind and conciliatory in his

had filled the contract with his
Northern friends, aud his best policy
here was to BIIOW tho beauties of Re?

Tile Spring Bonnet?.
The Paris correspondent of the
London Queen writes about the new
styles of bonnets:
There is much talk about straw
bonnets, and, although there are
many to bo seen in tho ' milliner's
shops, thero aro nono in tho streets
absolutely in wear. On the 1st of
May, they will, doubtless, appear as
usual, with the fresh roses. The
shapes are various; but those called
the "Metternich" uro tho prettiest I
have seen up to tho present time.
They aro small, with a narrow cur?
tain turned up at tho back, and in
front they advance as far as tho fore?
head. They have strings likewise,
which are tied under tho chiu. This
form of bonnet is almost tho only ono
with which ribbon or velvet strings
edged with narrow blonde aro retain?
ed. The other bonnets have either
lace or tullo lappets, plaits of silk,
narrow insertions embroidered with
jet, or scarves of crepe bordered with
quillings. Wherever it is possible to
iutroduce anything fanciful in a lady's
toilet, now-a-days, the opportunity is
quickly made available. Tho bronze
bonnets made of shaded brown straw,
likowiso those of black crin, or horse
hair, are very popular.
The brown or bronze bonnets are
usually made in thc "Marie Louise"
form, with Hat, low crowns, and thc
front bent somewhat low on the fore?
head. They aro bordered with bands
of pheasants' feathers; sometimes a
small wing is placed at the side, or
just below the loft oar; others have a
rose, a pomegranate flower, a dragon
fly, or elso a beautiful butterfly, ar?
ranged as n pompon. These brown
bonnets aro usually trimmed with
Bismarck leaves. The black crin
bonnets aro made in a variety of
forms, but decidedly that called tho
"Mignon" is tho most popular.
These bonnets arc covered with jct
beads, and are trimmed across the
front with ojien black gimp worked
with jet beads. This gimp is conti?
nued down tho sides of tho bonnet
and forms strings. Black crin, lined
with pink silk, and trimmed at the
side with a rose, and another rose
under thc chin, forms one of thc
prettiest neglige bonnets it is possible
to conceive. Demi-saison bonnets
made of crepe are moro popular than
straw ones at tho present moment.
Fondions of blue crepe, with small
white field daisies arranged carelessly,
aro great favorites. These bonnets
are tied with narrow crepe strings,
bordered with a ruell of silk or ribbou
about half an inch wide. No bow is
worn under thc chin now; it is re?
placed with either a small boquct or
Thc advocates of confiscation in?
sist that the possession of land is ab?
solutely essential to complete the
work of emancipation-that slavery
is but half abolished unless tho freed
negro has a piece of land (about
forty acr"? Mr. Phillips thinks, will
do) to stand upon. This is an ex?
tension of the argument by which
the ballot was claimed for the freed?
men, and it is not easy to see where
it is to stop. Why, if forty acres of
laud arc essential to freedom, are
not men to work it also essential?
Why is land more essential than
horses, or railroad stock, oran invest?
ment in Government bonds? All
these are convenient and it is comfort?
able to have them ; more so, very often,
than it is to have land and nothing
else. The Nation iusists that education
is what the negroes need more than
anything else, and that tho? Govern?
ment cannot do too much towards
giving it to them. Habits of in?
dustry and thrift-the faculty of
taking caro of themselves, of think?
ing and acting for themselves-arc
their first necessities. Whatever
gives them these will give them tho
best chanco of getting all else they
need.-Noir York Times.
PIKE.-Yesterday afternoon, a little
