Distress mt tis? Wort is,*
It is not alone at tho South that |
the approach of' winter briaga the |
immediato harbingers of suffering
and distress to the poor. We seo it |
stated that 60,000 men and women,
who have , been accustomed to earn
their living by daily toil, have been
thrown ont of employment in New
York "and Brooklyn. The wages of
these people, in ordinary business
times, average ten dollars per week,
for each person. In this way, $500, .
000, which these men and women, in
m AM. MT ar a ?C0 UStOIUCcL to. level vu
every Saturday night, are withheld
from them; and we might add, from
the retail trading community. Yet,
these people must live. Those who
are members of trades unions, find
the funds of their societies altogether
too insufficient to ailertl them much
relief. A few who have laid up a
portion of their earnings, daring the
past summer, against a rainy day,
fidd that it no vor rains brit it pobre,
and that much more than these sav?
ings will be required to save them |
from absolute want The large num?
ber who have spent, ali their .money,
are being- compelled to pawn what?
ever superfluous clothes or trickets
they can dispense with, and to
mortgage their services for next j
spring, in order "to procuro imme?
diate loans; while thousands have to
resort to every conceivable expedient,
in order that they, and others de
pendent on them, may be spared
from desperation, the poor house
and wrong-doing, for the sake of j
bread and household fires.
This is a shocking picture, in a
country abounding in all. manner of
resources, agricultural, mineral, ma?
nufacturing power, ?fcc, and indis?
putably proves that there is some?
thing radically wrong in the struotnre
of society, or that the country is
badly governed. Tho legislation of
the past three or four years in Con?
gress, the distrust and want of confi?
dence generally, which it has engen?
dered throughout commercial oircles,
in every section of the land, is beyond
doubt the chief cause of the business
depression now so painfully manifest
everywhere. This depression of
course affects all connected, no mat?
ter how remotely or in what way,
with business pursuits. If we had
statesmen in the councils of the |
nation, much of this terrible condi?
tion of affairs would have been pre?
vented, or conld now be ameliorated;
but between forming Bepublican go?
vernments for the disfranchised and
impoverished South, and the tinker?
ing with the ourrenoy by men totally
ignorant of the first principles of I
financial matters, the country has
been brought to the brink of ruin
and to the verge of anarchy. We I
BOO no hope for the future but in the
interposition of a merciful Provi?
dence. , There is no help in man, or
at least in the politicians of the pre?

ANOTHEBJFIBE.-On Tuesday last,
the dwelling house on Mr. John
Bainsford's Burt place, was destroy?
ed by fire, together with about 600
bushels corn, and all the furniture,
bedding, clothing, kc, of Mr. Albert
Pruett, who was living in the house
at the time, and had charge of Mr.
Bainsford's planting interest on this
glace. The fire is supposed to have
ad its origin from the carelessness
of a little girl, who had been sweep?
ing around the hearth, and left the
broom on fire. Mr. Bainsford's loss
is very heavy, as is also that of Mr.
Pruett's. No insurance.

W. Pickling opened the argument, in

in reply, It was contended, that
principal being declared a bankrupt,
the bali is discharged from tho debt,
inasmuch as the Court takes posses?
sion of person and property of bank?
rupt, on his being deolared a bank?
rupt. In reply, it was urged, that
creditors might yet come in and hin?
der the bankrupt from obtaining his

ment at length, for and against appli?
cation, the Court refused to order
discharge of bail, btit required that
the principal bo surrendered.

The United States Court was ad?
journed yesterday, at a late hour,
after a laborious session of nearly a
month. We understand that all the
cases on tbe various dockets, which
were ready for trial, have been dis?
posed of. There hus been, we be?
lieve, but one expression of opinion
from those who bad business with
the court, as to the ability, impar?
tiality and courtesy, with which
Judge Bryan discharged tho du MAR nf
his high office.
We have hitherto noticed the trial
had in this city, duriug the post few
weeks, before a military commission,
of a charge against E. Carter Harris
of conspiracy, with some five or six
freedmen, to obstruct tho track of
the South Carolina Bailroad, on the
occasion of the mn off in November
last. The result of this trial has just
been published iu orders. The find?
ing on the charge and specification is
"not guilty." The freedman, John
Montgomery, confessed that ho toro
up the rail from the track, but endea?
vored to implicate Harris. Hence
the above trial.
FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE WIDOWS
AND ORPHANS OF DECEASED SOLDIERS.
At the request of many of the ladies
of Columbia, Dr. Henry M. Clark?
son will read his poem "Evelyn,"
this evening, in the ball of Nicker
son's Hotel, which will be kindly
opened by Mr. Wright, for the
worthy purpose. As we have bet?re
said, the poem is well worthy of the
appreciation of our community. A
mere romance in prose would pall
upon the intellectual appetite; but to
enfold a story of the war in the
drapery of verse and rythm, and to
describle the battle scenes along the
Bnppahaunock-the death of Maxcy
Gregg and others, and the events ol
those stirring hours around which
memory still lingers lovingly-this is
a charm reserved alone to the true
poet. As such, Dr. Clarkson will
commend himself. As an alumnus
of the South Carolina College, ht
will also draw around him his brothel
graduates, as well as the present
generation of pupils in the Univer?
sity, besides that entire community
who sympathise with culture and re
finement. The ball will be open ai
half-post seven, and the poem wil
be read at eight. The price of ticket;
is fifty cents. These may be pur
chased at all the book stores, and a1
the door. The proceeds will be de
voted entirely to the good objec
which is announced at the beginning
of this paragraph. The following
poem, by Dr. Clarkson, will repaj
What the Angel Brought ns.
BY HENRY M. CLARKSON.
In the early days of Au tu nm,
In the bright Autumnal days,
When the Indian summer sunlight
Slants its soft September rays;
In my chamber I lay dreaming
Of a sick one dear to me
Of her young maternal yearnings
For a life that was to be.
By her bedside I was dreaming
In the curtained fight of day,
Till the purpling of the morning
Brightened into streaks of gray;
I was dreaming, that an angel,
Hovering o'er the loved one's couch
Fanned her with a breath of Heaven
Healed her with a holy touch.
Scorning, too, to carry something
Something sheltered 'neath hi
Then ho laid it down and loft il
Left the wee but wondrous thing;
And he scarcely pressed tho carpet,
Fassing by me where I lay
Touched mo with his wing as lightl;
As au aspen-leaf at play.
Yet that gent?o touch awoke me;
And tho rosy Hush of dawn,
Falling on tho lovely sufFrer,
ShowoJ the Angel form was gone
But I saw the Angel's burden
Tightly to her bosom pressed
Baby fingers, as she slumbered,
Toying with her marble breast!
And I kissed the dainty fingers,
While two lips so sweetly smiled.
Could I tell which was tho sweetest
Mother pale, or dimpled child?
But I know no Angel ever
Sweeter boon or blessing bore,
And no father and no mother
Welcomed such a babe before.
For her face is like tho morning,
Like tho morning-star her eye,
And her hair is like the sunlight
Of tho Indian summer sky.
Such tho gift tho Angel brought us
_ Baby with her winscme ways,
in tho early days of Autumn
In the bright Autumnal days!
