The New Orleans Hep ubi ?can pub*
. lish.es a letter from Gen. Longstreet,
and claims that he has taken his
stand on the platform of the Repub?
lican party, and considers that the
Demooraoy have lost all of their vi?
tality, and that with the surrender of
Qen. Lee, nothing remained to the
South bat to accept the situation.
The principles of tho Republican
party he now recognizes as law, and
as a law-abiding citizen, he feel
bound to sustain them. In view of
tho letter the General writes, tho Now
Orleans paper trusts that not a week
will havo passed after the opening of
Congress without restoring to Gen.
Longstreot the full rights of citizen?
ship, and without his being cordially
recognized as a valued loader in tho
To many of tho gallant Southern?
ers who followed Longstreet, and
were incorporated in his celebrated
"corps," the above ann ounce m cut
will be somewhat surprising, although
it may not be so. "Tho principles of
tho Republican party," as referred to
by the New Orleans paper, are the
only 2)r?Hc?ptes left us of tho South,
and, indeed, tho only principles,
North or South, whioh could com?
mand over a corporal's guard to their
support. Tho only principle now is
to re-unito the people of this coun?
try, and tho only way to re-nuite
them is by the striotest obedience to
tho laws which prescribe tho terms of
re-union. As Gen. Longstreet says
in this letter, "tho highest of haman
laws is the law established by an ap?
peal to arms."
Wo agreo with Gen. Longstreet,
that political discussions ought to
have reached their terminus by this
tillie, because, as ho says, tho prin?
ciples discussed, and that divided
parties before tho war, were tho?
roughly discussed by our wisest
statesmen. "When argument was ex?
hausted, resort was had to compro?
mise, and when compromiso was un?
availing, discussion was renewed and
expedients were sought; but none
could bo found to suit tho emergency.
Appeal was finally made to the sword,
to determino which of the claims was
the true construction of constitu?
tional law. Tho sword has decided
in favor of tho North, and what thc
parties claimed to be principles, have
coasod to be principles, and beconu
law. The viows that we held cease
to bo principles, because they are op?
posed to law. Therefore, it is oui
duty to abandon ideas that are obso
lete, and conform to the requirement!
Such n:e the views, in brief, of on<
of the most gallant leaders of th?
Southern armies, and such, in lette:
and spirit, have been the viows ex?
pressed through this journal since
the passage of tho reconstructior
laws, as they are called, enacted bj
Congress. And to-day, wo wouh
rathor have the endorsement of sucl
mon as Longstreet, Hampton, Lei
and others, as to the urgent necessity
for reconstruction and prompt resto
ration to tho Union, than tho honest
but ill-judged advice of disappointec
politicians, and the impulsive out
givings of the brave men who gal
lantly followed those noble leaders
offering their lives as a ?aerifico fo
tho maintenance of thoso principle
Tho General exactly coincides witl
our viows, in saying that, if ever
man in tho country will meet th
crisis with a proper appreciation o
oar condition, and come fairly up t
his responsibilities, we may yet be
happy people, "our fields will agai
begin to yield thoir insrease, our rai!
roads and rivers will teem with abut!
dant commerce, oar towns and citie
will resound with the tumult of trade
and we shall be invigorated by th
blessings of Almighty God. "
Such is tho picture General Long
street draws as tho result of recor
struction and restoration. Let on
peoplo compare it with the inevitabl
conseemences of sullen indifiorenc
or opposition to the laws, counsolle
by some others, who do not or cai
not truly appreciate what proteetio
to life, liberty, person and properl
is worth, simply because they neve
risked anything in making tho tesl
moro than a political buncomb
speech, or writing a letter full e
empty discussions of exploded thee
rios, nnel laudation of what they ca
tlio "old cherished, principles." If
they wish to fight again, and sink the
South beyond the hope of resurrec?
tion, let them follow the latter,
*and-be ruined. If they wish to find
tho old paths of prosperity and peace,
which crowned and blessed onr sec?
tion-if they wish to re-establish
Republican liberty, and save the Con?
stitution of the fathers-let th em now
to the rescue, and, by a cheerful con?
formity to law, regain their places in
tho Union, where alone they can aid
in the patriotic work.

Tire SOUTH DEFENDED.-A corres?
pondent of thc Skullt Carolina Bap
fist, writing from Chicago, where he
was attending a large ineetiug of the
Baptists from the North and North?
west, relates tho following incident:
"In the meeting, this afternoon,
some remarks were made by Dr. N.
Colver, who is trying to establish a
high school for the colored people, at
Beaufort, S. C. lu his speech, he
said that tho Southern people were
opposod to the education of t if ne?
groes. After ho had finished his re?
marks, J. R. Graves, of Tennessee,
rose, and said tho last speaker had
done injustice to the South. Brother
Graves then asked permission to read
som? resolutious passed by the South?
ern Baptist Convention, nt Memphis,
encouraging tho education of the
freed people. This privilege was
granted, and the resolutions were
read, which causedgenerrtlapplau.se."
Ho! REGISTERS.-Gen. Ord, com?
manding the Fourth Military Dis?
trict, lins issued an order on the sub?
ject of registration, which contains
"Registers will nut be permitted to
became candidates for election to the
convention for fluming the constitu?
tion of thc State, nor will registers,
while in tho exercise of their office,
bo allowed to degrade it by milking
speeches, or electioneering for or
against any candidate for office."
A most excellent feature that-?one
for which Gen. Ord deserves to be
commended. Wo congratulate the
people of thc Fourth District.
A despatch from Cleveland, Ohio,
June 6, states that the Episcopal

The chief feature of interest on that

strong low church ground, aud cha?
racterizing ritualism as contrary to
the spirit of the prayer book, and
urgings strict adherence to the forms
of worship prescribed therein. The

May 30, says that on the day previous
there were offers in Wall street to buy
Fraser, Tren holm & Co.'s poper, at

HA un os CONFEDERATE MONET.- '
The Now York Times has tho follow- j
iug hard hit at our once favorite blue
"In Arkansas, Toxasaud elsewhere,
military orders have lately forbidden
the collection of Confederate taxes.
That is nil right, practically, but :
poetical justice might better be done'
by allowing the tax-gather to go j
about, but not to take anything but j
Confederate money in payment of i
his claims. When deserting was!
pretty brisk from the rebel lines
around Petersburg, our soldiers, with j
characteristic humor, had a way of j
asking fresh deserters when they
wcro paid oft' last. On getting the
reply, they would soberly count out
to them their back pay in Confede?
rate currency provided for the pur?
pose. A good deal of Confederate
'money' is religiously preserved in
England; a good deni is hoarded up
for curiosity, aud a good deal has
boon unod for wrapping paper, for
covering boxes, papering barns, and
so forth. Still, enough could be col?
lected to satisfy the most avaricious
Confederate assessor. When Weitzel's
troops entered Richmond, Confede?
rate promises to pay were Hying all
around the streets in the wind, and
could be picked up by the handful.
And they are not to be despised,
after all-they are worth something,
in these days-avoirdupois."
DUFFV, THE CONDEMNED FENIAN.
The Fenian Dully, who has just been
coudomucd to twenty years' penal
servitude, said in court, after the
passing of the sentence, that Head
Centre "Stephens sent him and
others to Ireland to light, promising
to bc there himself; but when the
time came, Stephens went *o Franco
to see tho Paris Exposition. Ito
would not be in Stephens' place now;
Stephens was a lost man-lost to !
honor, to country." Dully is de?
scribed by the reporters ns a sickly
person, who spoke with difficulty, |
and could scarcely at times be heard. ,
A new cannon, iuveuted by thc
French Emperor, is under trial at
Vincennes, in profound secrecy,
trusted officers alono being allowed
to handle it, without the aid of sol?
diers. It is a copper piece, of small
calibre, said to make twelve to fifteen
j discharges per minute, ou the priu
I ciple of the needle-gun. Another re
j port-hardly worth repeating-says
I it is discharged forty or fifty times

Tho English Admiralty, being evi?
dently in waut of something to do io

issued an order prohibiting officers
from wearing whiskers "of such in?

do not state at what point of size and |
length the whisker ceases to be a j
whisker and becomes a beard-a most
important matter, which, if unset?

ANOTHER FENIAN CONVICT.-What
over may be the fate of the Fenian
ringleaders, it is impossible not to be
struck by the manliness and dignity
of their demeanor in their present
strait. The following is the speech
deliverel by Capt. McClure, after his
conviction, when called upon by the
Judge to say why sentence should
not bo passed upon him:
MT LORDS: In answer to tho ques?
tion as to why tho sentence of the
court should not now bo passed on
me, I would desire to mnko a few ro
marks in relation to my late exertions
on behalf of the suffering people of
this country, in aiding them in their
earnest endeavors to obtaiu tho inde?
pendence of their native laud.
Though not born on tho soil of Ire?
land, my parents were; and from his?
tory and the traditions of tho fire?
side, I became conversant with this
country's miseries from my earliest
childhood; and as tho human breast
possesses thoso God-like attributes
which make mon feel for suffering
mankind, I felt for Ireland's wrongs
and for her moral degradation, and I
felt that I should assist her people in
their attempt to right those wrongs
and raise her from degradation. I
shall not now state to what cause I
attribute the failure of tbs late insur?
rectionary movement; nor shall I ex?
press a sorrow I do not feel with
regard to my own conduct. I am
fully satisfied with the righteousness
of my every act in connection with
tho late revolutionary movement, I
having been actuated alonq by a holy
desire to assist in tho emancipation
of nu enslaved but generous people.
It alfords me more pleasure to have
acted as I have done, in behalf of the
Irish people, than any event that has
occurred to mo during my eventful
though youthful existence. I would
wish tobe distinctly understood-and
I say it, herc-standing on the brink
of au early grave-that I nm no filii
buster, no freebooter. I came to this
county with no personal object to
gain-with no desire to my own ad?
vancement. I came here solely out
of love of Ireland and sympathy for
her people. If I have forfeited my
life for having done so, I am ready to
abide the issue. If my devotion to
au oppressed people bo a crime. I am
willing to receive the penalty ol' that
crime, knowing, ns I do, that what I
have done was in behalf of a people
whose cause was just and holy-a
people who will appreciate and honor
a mau, although ho may not be a
countryman of their own, but still a
man who is willing to suffer iu de?
fence of that divine American prin?
ciple-the right of self government.
1 would now wish to tender to my
learned and eloquent counsel, Mr.
Heron and Mr. Waters, and to my
solicitor, Mr. Collins, my sincere and
heartfelt thanks for the able manner
in which they have conducted my
defence. And nov, my fjords, I trust1
I nm prepared to submit to the pe- I
unity it will be the duty of your
Lordships to pronounce on me. I
have no more to suv.
A LOCAL TAKEN ON TRIAL.-One of
our exchanges employed a local re?
porter on trial, and thus; tells of his
"He went out to hunt items, and
after being away nil day. returned
with the following, which, he said,
was the best he could do: 'Yester?
day, wo saw a sight that froze our
muscles with horror. A hackman
driving down Clark street at a rapid
pace came vory near running over a
nurse aud two children. There
would have been one of the most
heart-rending catastrophes ever re?
corded, bad not th? nurse, with won?
derful forethought, left the children
at home before she went out, and
providentially stepped into n store
just before the hack passed. Thou,
too, the hackman, just before reach?
ing the crossing, thought of some?
thing that ho had forgot, and, turn?
ing about, drove in the opposite
direction. Had it not been for this
wonderful concurrence of favoring
circumstances, a doting father, a
loving mother, and affectionate bro?
thers and sisters, would have been
plunged in the deepest woe and un?
utterable funeral expenses.' The now
reporter will be retained."
SINGULAR CASK.-The Baltimore
Commercial, of Friday, has tho fol?
"Within afuw days past, a caso of
somewhat novel character has been
developed by some philanthropic la?
dies in Old Town. It seems that,
previous to the uar, a highly edu?
cated lady was tesl ling in North
Carolina, upon a very largo planta?
tion, surrounded by lux ir v and living
iu true Southern style. Tho results
of tho war reduced her to want; her
many slaves were emancipated by the
proclamation, and she vas left help?
less and alone. She filially reached
this city several days siuie, in search
of some old friends, in groat destitu?
tion, mid was about to apply to the
authorities for rolief, in ker despair,
when she encountered om of herold
servants, now a resident here, who
insisted upon returning the many
acts of Kindness displayed in the

mer mistress with a comfortable
home. How singular alt) the work?
