TtjEilay ?lorniug, Nov. 12, 1867.'
An English writer, a Mr. Buckle,
?omniencedn work on titled tte "His?
tory o? Giyi?izatiou of England," iu
which ho demonstrates, by citing
historical examples, that re-action
. inevitably follows excess. Speaking
of the .condition of .Scotlaud io the
seventeenth and eighteenth centu?
ries, Mr. Buoklo advances Ute follow?
ing views, which tho history of the
world has almost invariably proven
? "In the progress of misrule and
injustice, while things seem to be at
their worst, a great re-action is always
?)prf?*~ ring. And the explanation of
To-aotion ia to be found in that vast
?nd pregnant prinoiple on which I
. have often insisted, but which our
common historians aro unable to
understand-namely, that a bad Go?
vernment, oppressive laws, or laws
badly administered, aro indeed ex?
tremely injurious at the time, but
can produce no permanent mischief;
in other words, they moy barm a
'country, but can never ruin it. As
long as the oppressed people are
sound, there is life, and where there
is life there will be re-action. In
auch case, tyranny provokes rebel
lion, and despotism causes freedom.
But if the oppressed people are
untrue to themselves, all hope is gone
and the nation perishes."
The recent extraordinary political
rc-action in the Slates of the North
and Wost dhow that tho masses of
the people in those seotions are still
trae to the principles upon which this
?Government was founded, and that
they are aroused to the dangers
?which threaten thoir country. We
believe now that restoration and
Union will, ere long, bo accom?
plished, and that, under tho old Hag
o? the Union, the nation will tak<
its place os the first among .Lo mosl
.powerful of the States of the old
.world. The tide of re-nction will nol
go backwards, aud the whole people
.of both North and South will bene
?heir energies to devolop the mighty
.resources of this couutry, and re
united under the flag of the Union
?ind standing by the Constitution
will steadily progres? to that great
ai ess which it is theiu>duty, right ant
privilege to uttaiu to. In this work
tho people of tho South, afflicted an<
impoverished as they havo been, wil
?bo as true aud faithful as those of an;
-other section of the couutry.
WHAT TH?Y TI?ACH.-The lesson t
lie learned from these recent election
-is easy and plain. It means that th
peoplo condemn the military recoc
struction laws, the tenure of offlc
bill, and all the violent coercive mer
sures of the Inst uud preseut Cor
gross, and declare that all such legi;
lat ion ehall bc swept away. It mean
the repudiation of both tho Coppei
head aud Jacobiu factions, and
determination to take a new depai
.turo with new meu and a new line c
?policy. It moans that while th
loyal men of thc North demand th
full consummation of the freedom t
the negro race, and favor their ei
franchisee eat under Stato laws, wit
av property qualification, as in tl:
Northern State?, they also denian
the instant abolitiou of militai
governments in tho Southern Di
tricts, the generous treatment of tl
?white 'citizens of the South, ai
their speedy restoration lo their lo
rights, lt meaus a reform in o
. whole financial system, aud a redu

G?NERAI. GRANT.-The New Yo
Times concludes an article on t
Presidency, with the following pai
Gen. Grant's nomination, whi
wo regard ns virtually made alrcati
will consolidate and harmonize t
Republican party, first by ending
personal strife, all contest and col
sion among aspirants for tho Pre
dency, and next by confining its i
tion to tho essential principles a
policy which the tvolfiirn of tho rot
try requires. And his election v
put an end to tho war of parties n
of factions, by which peace has bc
repelled and the restoration of t
Union discouraged and delayed.

OF LiA?iNO.~The following regula^

"Under seotion -? of tho Aot of

without pro-payment of Ihe tax,

Treasury, it is determined to substi?
tute shipments to revenue officers

"Accordingly, the owner or other
holder of cotton, which he desires to
remove from the district of produc?
tion to another district without pre?
payment of the tax, will hereafter bo
required to obtain a bill of lading in
duplicate, signed by a well-known,
regularly established and responsible
transportation company, consigning
the cotton to tho collector of the dis?
trict of destination, for delivery to
the factor or agent of tho owner,
after payment of the tax.
"Tho transportation company
signing such bills of lading will be
required to furnish to tho assessor of
tho district in which is tho receiving
port or point of destination, imme?
diately after arrival, a copy of their
manifest or way bill, so far us it
relates to any cotton transported by
thom, and stating thoroin whether
the cotton is class A, B or C, as here?
"Each assessor will keep nu ac?
count of all cotton ontered upon tile j
copies of manifests and way lulls HO j
furnished to him.
"Should any transportation com?
pany refuse or neglect to furnish the j
assessor with a copy of manifest or

sessor will immediately notify all tho
assessors on the lino ot such trans?
portation company ol such neglect
or refusal; and thereafter no permit
for tho transportation of cotton by
snob company will be granted by any
assessor, without permission to do so
being obtained from tho Commis?
sioner of Internal Revenue."
TnE EFFECT IN NEW YOKK.-Tho
New York correspondent of the Phi?
ladelphia. Ledger writes:
"The World and /.> tiing Express
offices have tho national colors dis?
played, nud altogether things there
and thereabouts are nothing, if not
jolly. Tho Republicans are disposed
to take their bad fortune with as
much philosophy as they can muster.
.Let the Democrats laugh,' say they,
'it is so long since the poor fellows
have had an opportunity to enjoy
themselves in that way that it would
be a pity to spoil their fun,' Are.
Down in Wall street, the talk for the
moment turns moro on 'majorities'
than Harlem or Michigan Central.
The Democracy exultingly point to
the fact that gold is down and bonds
up, as a practical proof of the favor*
ablo influences tho success of their
principles and their policy at the
polls npon tho material interests of
tho country; but, of course, tho Re?
publicans don't see it in that light.
"There is reason to believe that
one of thc very first results of tho
defeut of tho Republicans in this
State will bo a serious split in their
organization. Raymond, Weed and
Bryant, to-day, all declare that the
party must become conservativo if it
expects the support of the people in
future, and that to that end it must
not hesitate, if need be, to cut loose
from tho Greeleys, tho Wendell Phil
Ii pses and the Tiltons altogether.
They insist upon it, also, that Con?
gress shall drop tho impeachment
business and pay less dofereneo to
tho views and opinions of Mr. Thad?
"Tho Greeleyites, on tho other
hand, contend that tho only salva?
tion of tho party lies in a moro radi?
cal direction than tho ono which it is
now pursuing; also, it was tho milk
and-water conservatism of Raymond,
Weed & Co. that produced the great
disasters of yesterday. Tho motto
of the class still is no concession, no
compromise and no surrender."
THE CONVENTION ADDBESS.-Tho
Charleston Mercury says of this able
This address constitutes all the
business dono by tho Convention, lt
?8^ a capital address, sound in doc?
trino, and excellent in tone and tem?
per. Wo think the calling of tho
Convention was a mistake; but being
assembled, if wo had been a member
of tho Convention, wo wonld have
voted for tho address. We look upon
it as a most admirable expedient for
escaping from an erroneous position.
Tho Convention was right to do no
more, and it could hardly do less.
The London Times predicts that
should Napoleon fail to bring about
a ^enoral conference of tho European
powers, to settle tho Roman question;
ho will abandon the defence of tho
temporal power of the Pope, and
leave Italy freo to decide upon the
future position of Rome.
S ABC A s M. -Th e following truthful
sarcasm on the past and futuro repre?
sentation of the South, is from tho
New York Ber aid : %
Who is there but feels proud of
the ^history of the country, and of
tho array of intellect in its annals,
when he runs over the names of tho
men that in the past represented only
the South in the councils of the na?
tion-Jefferson, Madison, Randolph,
Lowndes, Pincknoy, Hayne, Cal?
houn? Ono might run the list to
noblo length, and montion only men
who hud earned world-wide fame,
and were worthy of it. But if one
indulges these remembrances, he is
likely to be called a Kip Vau Winkle,
it is such au age of progress, nnd we
have so changed all that.
What are tho glorious mimes that
are likely to be associated with South?
ern representation in tho future?
Onn?d?v, Coffee and Sambo! EUeck
Johnson, Pompey Smith, Ciesar
Jones and Cicoroea, with every possi?
ble addition, aro to be tho futuro
Senators, speakers and eloquent
orators from States whoso annals are
splendid with tho names of the found?
ers of freedom. No wonder the Re?
publican party vaunts its achieve?
ments, when it can show results as
great ns this!
THE YELLOW FEVER IN NEW OIS
I.EANS.-Tho following is au extract
from a letter written by a gentleman
who has resided for thirty-five years
in New Orleans:
"Tho fever that has desolated this
city, aud tho South-western part of
tho State this season, was tho most
terrific disease I have ever witnessed
in the simpo of an epidemic. Tho
cholera of 1832 was more sudden in its
effects, but no fever hos visited New
Orleans for tho past forty-fivo yours
comparable to it. Creoles who were
boru in the State, and who had never
been ont of it, including whites, mu?
lattoes or blacks, from five to thirty
five years of age, huvo been carried
off in attacks that last only forty
eight or seventy-two hours."
ELOPEMENT EXTRAORDINARY -A
Xr.ono RUNS AWAY WITH A WHITE
MAN'S WIFE.-The evil effects nf
miscegenation were made painfully
public yesterday, by the elopement
of a white married ?vornan with a
negro niau. This mau had been an
inmate of tho house for sonic time,
and having been treated ns a man ami
a brother, had succeeded in alienat?
ing the affections of the woman from
ber liege lord to such an extent that,
during his temporary nbseuce in
Summerville, she gathered np his
valuables, and with her paramour
took the train for New York. Tho
bereaved husband returned lo find
bis house empty, the birds flown and
his inoncv, tith; deeds, watches, Ac.,
minus. Instead of tearing his hair
and acting in a romantic manner, ho
quietly notified the detectives, and
had tho satisfaction <>f learning that

pair were assigned quarters in sepa?

NKOROES CARRYING WEAPONS.
Saturday evening, as the night train
from Columbia reached the Port
Mofle Station, a very largo number
of negroes was on the platform to
escort and see safe ou board a trio of
brown mulattoes, who had been
haranguing a large, crowd of negroes
in that vicinity during tho day. In
addition to this large escort, there
was a special escort of two stalwart
blacks, armed with a pair of bran new
muskets. The armed negroes got
into the cars with their charge, aud
all took scats in the ladies' ear.
Shortly afterwards the conductor
told the party that the forward car
was appropriated for tho use of color?
ed people, upon which tho two self
appointed sentinels moved in that
direction. Tho whole party got out
at Orangeburg, where a mass meet?
ing of tho blacks was to have been
addressed by the trio yesterday.

from Rockville last evening, bringing
tho murdered body ?if Peter Lock?

colored man of this city, nged about
twenty-four or twenty-live. Peter

where he was to have been married
yesterday. On Saturday night, he
and several of bis colored friends had
a dancing part}', which broke up
quietly nt 1 o'clock. Peter then re?

kitchen of Ur. Daniel J. Townsend,
and between that hour and ? o'clock

THE COST OF WAR IN TI HES OF

Thirty-ninth Congress, we notico
that those made for war purposes, in?

exceed sixty millions of dollars.
These are tho appropriations made
at tho second session only. The

one who lost a friend here not only
to render us all the aid possible, but
lo communicate with the association
and give all tho information they can
about where their friends tire buried,
their brigade, regiment, company,

make a stirring or eloquent appeal to

POTJITICAII.-Among the numerous
rumors iu thc city, is one that Chap?
lain French aud a leading politician
of tho Republican party, recently
arrived from Washington, have made
application to General Cauby to post?
pone the election for a Stat?! Conven?
tion. They give as a reason that a
number of prominent Republican
members of tho House of Represen?
tatives have agreed to so modify the
Recoustiuction Acta as to include
much larger proportion of the whites
of the South among the enfranchised
classes. Many of the radicals at the
North have become alarmed at the
recent elections, and are now anxious
to propose or adopt more conciliatory j
measures. Having, they say, yielded
at the last, session to the views of |
Thad. Stevens, Sumner and others,
leaders, and tho election having gone
against them, they now demand that
Stevens, Sumner and others shall co?
operate with tho more moderate win;
of thc party.
Tt is also rumored that Gen. Cirant,
if rm. as thc Republican candidate
for President of thc United States,
will do so only upon a modified plat?
form. One great causo of tho un?
popularity of negro au?lVago at the
North, was saul to bo thc disposition
evinced by thc blacks at Hu* South to
thrust everywhere their own color
forward, both for local ami Congres?
sional offices. This course, it was
feared by many lending Republicans,
would seriously injure, if not totally
defeat their party. We only give
these rumors as some of the OH dits
of tli?- day.-Charleston Courier.
