What ta ttao ?ael
A meeting was called in Atlanta,
last -week, for tho purposes indicated
in the following paragraphs:
"1. To organizo a Conservative
Uniou pnrty, opposed to tho adop?
tion, by the State of Georgia, of tho
unconstitutional and oppressive Act
kuown as the "Sherman Military
Bill," believing said Act subversive
of tho uniou of the Slates, and wholly
destructive to the cherished princi
Eles of magna charta and civil li?
"2. To urge tho people to register
and unite for the purpose of main?
taining the Union as restored bv tho
recognized policy of his Excellency
tho President of the United States."
Wo do not doubt the patriotism of
'the callers of this meeting, but wo
doubt tho wisdom of the movement.
Although they had tho full permis?
sion of Gen. Pope to hold the meet?
ing, yet, so far as auy good can result
from it, it is, wo think, a great mis?
take to commouco tho organization
of any parly outside the platform of
tho reconstruction laws of Congress.
Our reasons are simply these: That
in no other way than through the
op?ration of these laws eau the South
bo restored to tho Uniou for years to
come; that restoration is her first and
greatest need; that it is unwise for
tho peoj?le of these States to go to
tho support of .the policy of tho Pre?
sident at this late day, when that
policy 'has beeu defeated over aud
over again, aud despito a number of
vetoes, by the Legislative Depart?
ment, and not sustaiued by tliG Judi?
cial Department, of the Government;
that tho breach between the Execu
.ve and Congress ought to bo con?
tracted, instead of widened; and
that lastly, tho organization of parties
at tho South, and especially of any
party whose object is to fight against
the reconstruction laws, is not only
futile, but must lead to distractions,
among a people where all should be
harmony, and may end in such a |
strife as Mill be ruinous to our sec?
For these reasons, we deprecate
any such movements as that referred
to. Tho laws referred to may be un?
constitutional, but the Supreme
Court, before which tribunal they
have beeu brought, has not said so.
Thou why agitato the people with a
fruitless issue? If Georgia, or any
other State, South, refuses to call a
convention, or to adopt a constitu?
tion, in conformity with the require?
ments of the law, that State will not
be admitted, and, indeed, if any con?
siderable number of the excluded
States should take such actiou, we
doubt very much if any of them
would bo admitted. Is the South
prepared for a continuance of the
present condition of affairs for some
years longer? We do not th i ul: so.
Capital shuns the impoverished South
so long as her political relations are
unsettled and unaljusted; labor, me?
chanical skill, investments in manu?
factures, all shrink from coming to
the States which may remain uuder
military rule for year.s. And this is
natural-capital is only safe uuder
permanent civil rule, and immigra?
tion has other aud more promising
fields to go to, whete this permanency
exists, and where the rewards of labor
aro not threateued or disturbed by
public uncertainty, or the danger of
organic changes in the political rela?
tions of the commuuities iu which
If tho people ol the South will se?
riously consider these matters, we
cannot believe that they will be led
astray by any set of politicians, how?
ever plausible may be their theories,
or however right in the past may
have been their doctrines. Thc only
road to prosperity, now, is, to con?
form to the circumstances which sur?
Loudon Times holds the United States
responsible for tho failnro of Maxi?
milian's Mexican Government, and
Bays that they must take up the work
of reconstruction aud pacification,
although they will meet with resist?
ance and opposing factious, whatever
cause or principle of policy they may
proclaim. This oppositiou, says tho
Times, they must suppress, as the
French would have done, by force of
arms, and with little respect to tho
doctrines of nationality or inde?
pendence. Tho work will probably
be troublesome, but as thero will, nt
any rate, bo nobody to hinder it.'we
may prosmno that it will be accom?
plished at last.
Expatriation Don't Pay.
Our attention has been called to a
fact which proves conclusively that
expatriation don't pay. Of the large
number of Southerners who, in tho
first pangs of disappointment at tho
result of the war, expatriated them?
selves, very few now remain involun?
tary exiles. Throe-fourths of those
who went to Mexico have returned;
some went to Europe, nud a very few
may still remain in Mexico. And it
has been the same elsewhere-South?
ern colonies in Brazil nud other places
have proven failures. Of nil the ex?
patriated Headers or office-holder.-? in
the late Confederacy, but one-J. P.
Benjamin-is apparently the only
one who has at all prospered.
On tho other hand, those officers
and leaders on tho Southern side of
the struggle, who remained at home,
have, without exception almost, done
well for themselves and for the recu?
peration of tho land they love. Gene?
rals Lee, Hampton, Beauregard and
others, after thc fall of tho cause,
Bottled down and went to work nt
various occupations, all tending to
aid in tho rescue of the South from
her shattered nud impoverished con?
dition. If they aro not bocomiug
wealthy, ns in former times, they are
living comfortably, have friends
around them, and have, above nil,
the satisfaction of knowing that they
are doing their duty as native-born
sous of the sunny South. For all
this experience in the past, there ore
still somo who make the effort to
seek their fortunes elsewhere, as oc?
casionally, up to this t ime even, we
observe squads of emigrants sailing
from tho South to one point or an?
other. They will return sadder but
wiser men, after enduring many
THE INCOME TAX.-It is very justly
said that income returns are very un?
satisfactory, being subject to very
erroneous interpretations. No just
estimate of the incomes of men en?
gaged in commerce or production
can be formed from the returns
Mau}- men must pay for the last year's
taxes upon profits that were lost be?
fore they were realized. A great
house, that has just failed, in New
York, which, it is said, will have to
return au income of 8800,000; and
many men who have not failed, and
who do not menu to, return large in?
comes, but are really poorer than
they were before their profits were
made, for they have lost them, and
more with them.
The English papers fear that this
year will witness the dire shadow of
last year's commercial eclipse. There
is in England a perfect dearth ot
credit, which is already painfully and
pinehingly felt, and much of it is
ascribed to the insolvency of the rail?
roads, upon which many families
have depended for small incomes in
the shape of dividends. Money that
was borrowed when money was easy
to obUiin, has now to be repaid, when
it is all hut impossible to borrow, and
many families of moderate means are
casting their hundred a year into an
abyss from which not a particle of it
can ever return; and there is no help
for it; while pride, the dread of los?
ing caste, and the dread of losing
situations prevent many a struggling
man from taking a step which would
put au end to a life-long burden.
The President's Southern tour pre?
sents quite a contrast to his last year's
trip to the West, for ho has beeu met
with the greatest cordiality; and
though there has been no huge de?
monstrations, tho kindly feelings and
genuine ami unaffected respect shown
him by all classes, proves that the
unreconstructed South will compare
favorably with other and more loyal
sections of the country. In his re?
cent tour, we are pleased to miss tho
stereotyped harangues on thc state of
tho country, the situation and pros?
pect, and other controversial topics;
anti in their stead wo have simple ex?
pressions of gratitude for the recep?
tion accorded; and everything calcu?
lated to foment discord between
classes or politicians was sedulously
avoided. The result of this conduct
lias been a pleasing interchango of
ideas beyond the beaten track of poli?
tics. In Richmond, this was pecu?
liarly noticeable, and during tho
interview between the Prosideut and
tho citizens all restraint was thrown
off, and the conversation was as in?
formal as if they hud been guests
around the fire-side of a mutual
friend. For instance, on leaving, Dr.
Minnegerode remarked that ho hoped
their visit was a harbinger of better
things for tho South. To which tho
President replied, "I am willing to
forget tho past, aud hope for better
things in tho future."

EXTRA SESSION OF A LEGISLATURE.
We were a little snrpris?d to find the
following in the Wilmington Journal,
of Saturday. We did not think that
any sessiou of a Legislature would be
permitted to bo held in the military
districts, until after registration and
subsequent elections. - The article
from which we cxtraot is ouo strong'y
urging the convening of the Legisla?
ture of our sister State, for the pur?
pose of adoptiug the penitentiary
"Tho Raleigh Sentinel learns that
Gun. Sickles is fully impressed with
the necessity of a penitentiary, and
thinks it highly desirable that tho
Legislature should meet, for the pur?
pose of adopting the system, if for
nothing else. Bo this as it may, wo
take it for granted that the Legisla?
ture will meet, according to its ad?
journment, in August, unless sootier
convened by the Governor, and ut
present we can sec no purpose for
such a course, and wc do not believe
that Gen. Sickles will interfere in uuy
way with its meeting, whatever may
be his individual opinion of the neces?
sity of the session. He can certainly
have no desiro to interfere with the
ordinary civil administration of the
State, unless it interferes with the
purposes for tho consummation of
which he has boon placed in military
command over thc Carolinas. Re?
construction cannot bo impeded bj^
tho mcctiug of the Legislature, cud
may bo very much promoted by the
assembling together of tile represen?
tatives ol' thc people at this time."

WEST POINT-THOSE SOUTHERN
GRADUATES.-We noticed, a few days
ago. ti paragraph from the Now York
Tino s, in relation to Southern gradu?
ates at West Point. Thc New York

from its correspondent at that place:

WEST POINT, June 3. 1867.-There
is a short article in n Now York paper
of this date, casting reflections upon
the ability of Northern youth, stating
that of the honors ol' thc class of "?IT,
nearly all have boen won by young
men from the South. This paper
seems to ignore, or be unaware of,
tho fact that, when the present gradu?
ates were appointed in 08, there were
a laiv.To number of appointments nt
the Military Academy lett vacant in
the seceded States. These vacancies
wore Ailed by thc President mostly
from the ranks of the army, by men
who were of Northern birth and
Northern education. Of the few
from thc South, all have the most
loyal antecedents. Of those particu?
larly mentioned. Rufflier, appointed
from Virginia, i- a native of that
State, but of that loyal portionfiWest
of the Bluo Ridge: "Mallory. Rogers
and Haupt arc native? of Pennsylva?
nia; Sears ia from Ohio. Griffith's

from Teunessec. It will bc uostrange

to hear that sectionalism is unknown
and merit alone secures academic dis?
tinction at Wost Point.
TERRIBLE EXPLOSION.-A boiler ex?

dug out of the ruins-six were deac

Twelvti others are thought to be ?til

shook tho buildings for square

being in good order. At-i p. m., tin

GENERAL ORDER NO. 34.-It i
stated that the cause which led to th
issuing of Order No. 3-1 was a belie
on the part of General Sickles tba
justice was not as promptly ndminis
tered in some parts of the State as i
might be. This being his belief, h
thought it advisable to make ai
order which, should allow the civi
authorities to retain the primary con
trol of civil affairs, while, at the sam
time, such information was furnishci
the military authorities as wottlt
enable them to revise any action al
ready taken, or to take any furthe
action as might be considered neces
sary. General Sickles preferred doiu
this to issuing such nn order as tba
issued, with the same intention ant
motive, by Gener.il Schofield.

HEAVY DAMAGES AGAINST A RAH
ROAD.-Some time within tho las
two years, Wesley Thomas, a firema
on the Mobile and Ohio Railroad
was so severely injured by a trai:
running off the track that it wa
found necessary to amputate hi
right arm. His right leg, too, is sal
to have been severely scalded by th
steam which escaped from the loee
motive. Mr. Thomas instituted
suit against the railroad company fo
damages to tho amount, wo believe
of 840,000. Tho Mobile Registe}' say
tho case wns decided in tho Circu?
Court a few days ago-the jar
awarding the eomnlainint damages t
the amount of 8.3,000, with SI,00
for medical attendance.

Tb? Cotton Trade.
Great financial agencies work si?
lently, bat they are most potent in
their effects. Recently, we witnessed
a succession of cotton failures in this
country and England, amounting, iu
the aggregate, to $7,000,000, and the
full effeots of the depression of tho
cotton trade have not yet been fully
developed. In this city, there aro
large amounts of protested oottou
bills, the acceptors of which aro not
yet announced in tho list of insol?
vents, and upon which the holders
decline to take action, lest the de?
pression should spread into panic
and induce numerous failures. It ap?
pears not to be generali}' understood
that this condition of affairs is due to
the dependenco of our commerce
upon the discount facilities of the
Bank of England.
That institution has, for some time
past, persistently declined to dis?
count the bills of cotton merchants.
What may bo the reasons of this ex- :
trnordinnry course we know not. It I
may be that Manchester, desiring to j
have cheap cotton, has prevailed
upon the directors of that institu- j
tion to withhold thc- facilities enabling |
merchants to carry cotton. Or it
maybe that, imagining cheap cotton
to be au essential to the renewal of
active orders for yarns and goods
from the continent of Europe, the
bank lins taken this course ns a step
toward invigorating tho continental
trade. Gr it may be that, thinking
cotton unreasonably high, the mana?
gers deem cotton paper unsafe to dis?
count; only iu that case it would
seem singular that the bank should
have discounted cotton paper for so
lon? during thc previous period of
tho decline in price.
But whatever may be the cause of
its action, its effect has proved most
baleful to the cotton trade: and tho
injury is not confined to the mer?
chants and bankers of this country,
but extends equally to the great mer?
cantile interest ot' Liverpool. The
Hank of England ought to be tho
best judge of its own actiou;but to
our view, its coarse in this respect
appears very short-sighted. The
bank being in a certain sense a na?
tional institution, and being sup?
posed to b<? managed willi a regard to
tho interests commerce at large,
may be considered justified in regu?
lating its action with a view to giving
England the very important advan- ;
tage of cheap cotton. It must be
further all ?wed, that its refusal to dis?
count cotton bills has had the effect
of depressing the price of the staple,
the probability being that but for its
course, middling uplands would have
been now worth 13d. per pound nt
Liverpool, iustend of lld. But how
long can this effect continue?
No institution, though endowed
with the vast power of the Bank of
England, can. for any important pe?
riod, keep products below their real
value. Moreover, the direct effect of
tho depression of the cotton trade is
to limit the next crop. Planters are
so discouraged by the numerous dif?
ficulties that beset them, that the de?
pression in the cotton market and
tho downward tendency of the price
have easily induced them to turn
their attention from the production
of cotton to the cultivation of other
crops; while factors have had their
means for assisting the planters ma?
It is quite probable that the pre?
sent condition of the trade may in?
duce a curtailment of the crop to the
extent of 250,000 bales; and such
being the case, what has the bank
gained by its policy? The prospect
of another light crop would cause an
upward bound in the price of cotton,
in which all would be lost in the way
of a reduction of the price which has
been gained by the action of the
bank. It is, to say the least, very
questionable of a great bank to take
such an arbitrary course relative to
the chief branch of trade of tho two
countries. The cotton trade cannot
be injured without damage resulting
to other large departments of com?
It may be that, owing to the large
losses in the cotton trade for many
months past, cotton paper is not to
be considered the safest way of em?
ploying money; but if it was not pru?
dent to discount it upon ordinary
terms, what should prevent the tem?
porary adoption of other terms, at?
tended with less risk? It is the mis?
fortune of that venerable institution
that it has become "fogyish" and very
whimmy. With firmer and more
competent management, the great !
panic of last year would have boen j
avoided, and it is because there are
in the direction curtain gentlemen 1
of strong prejudices and feeble judg?
ment, that we havo the present condi?
tion of the cotton trade.

CORN AND WHEAT.-It would be
interesting to know kow much corn is
planted during these pleasant June
days. Owing to tho protracted wet
weather, a large part of tho corn fields
of tho North have remained implant?
ed. But now, through a region a
thousand miles long and threo hun?
dred broad, from daylight till dusk,
tho farmer improves tho favornblo
hours to plant corn. Whatever tho
amount may be, it is certainly larger
than ever was planted before. With
tho incentives of high prices, a real
scarcity of grain and the growing
season before us, we may confidently
expect n yield fully up to the ove?
While the weather was so unfavor?
able for corn planting, it was highly
favorable for wheat. During those
wet, cold weeks, thu wheat plant grew
very slowly, and, in protecting itself,
it sent out new shoots, which now,
through all tho fields, aro rising to
sight aud adding to a stand which,
by reason of the winter snows, was
already good. This addition will add
much to thc crop. Hud the season
been warm, thc plant would have
grown rapidly and been deprived of
this increase. Hence, one sccs that
naturally a cold climate, giving a
slow growth, and having a tendency
to create a self-protecting sod, must
in ii series of years yield more wealth
than a warm, rapidly maturing cli?
Thousands of sharp observers ore
noting those fads, for millions of dol?
lars depend upon them. The pros?
pect of bountiful harvests is having
a powerful effect ou the market, and
we aro noting heavy declines. Other
articles of food aro also declining.
These univ be considered us sure sign s
of a speedy revival of trade.
[Al:ir York Tribune.
HURRY THE WHEAT CROP TO ?MAR?
KET.-The accounts from all sections
of thc country concur in tho state?
ment that the wheat crop is larger
and more promising than for years
past. lu addition to this, large
quantities of wheat are being re?
ceived from California, a single ship,
the George Peabody, having arrived
at New York last week, from San
Francisco, with a cargo of over 20,
U00 bushels. Wheat is also being
shipped to this country from Europe,
and doubtless considerable quanti?
ties will continue to be received from
that quarter as long as thc present
high prices prevail.
Thc prospect of peace in Europe
will have thc effect of reducing the
price of breadstuff's in all the coun?
tries of the old world, and will check
any tendency toward exportation
from this country. Tho crops of the
Middle and Western States will be?
gin to come into market in a few
weeks, and then wc may expect, with
a considerable degree of certainty,
that tho l?ricos will fall rapidly.
We, therefore, urge our planters
to hurry in their crops to market,
and reap tue benefit of the preseut
high prices. Thc wheat crop of
Georgia will bring into thc State
many millions of dollars, and, if
speedily put upon the market, will
greatly alleviate the impoverished
condition of our planters. We beg
; our planting friends not to wait for
higher prices, but to push tho crops
forward ut ouco. The price will
surely fall, aud, we believe, at a very
early day.-Augusta Chronicle.
Tun NATIONAL FINANCES.-The Sec?
retary of tho Treasury was most
agreeably surprised by the favorable
exhibit of tile Federal finances ol' the
last month, and his ability to reduce
tho public debt a little, instead of
seeing it increased, as he appre?
hended. Tho unexpected receipts
came chiefly from miscellaneous
items. The result is much moro satis?
factory than that which w;\s feared by
Mr. Culloch would have been.
Nevt. ueless, this unexpected turn to
a gentleman having all the figures of
all the resources of tho Government
before him, suggests the idea of a
"cash nceouut ore}'." To the ac?
countant, this is just as olarmiug ns
the "cash account short." It is sure
to be "short" before he gets it right.
There is one groat evil that stares us
all, as well as Mr. McCulloch, in tho
face. It is the falling oil in internal
revenue. That shows thu disturbance
nt home, the diminution of domestic
prosperity, and the prevailing disor?
der in tho enterprise and industry of
the country. Until quiet and confi?
dence aro restored by tho re-estab?
lished ?quality of the States, no great
improve ment can be expected in our
domestic affairs, and Mr. McCulloch's

ment, based on n conviction of har?
mony of interest. And the systematic

which tends directly to a disturbance
of these relations,* may well cause
disquiet and resentment"to the whites
