It appears that a oc4ored man,
named Cain, one of General Canby's
aldermen, in Charleston, ia an editor
of a sheet culled the Missionary Re?
cord. In a recent issue, there ap?
pear od a? 'ediwrial headed "The
Whirlwind Cometh-Beware." The
article is incendiary in tone, and fall
of impudence and presumption.
White men are, threatened, and the
- negroes are inoited to violence and
lawlessness, by appeals, to; .their pas?

ther moro nor less than to fan the I
discontent of the idle and unem?

tends to enumerate tho. abuses of the

of the city responsible for ' this state
of things, and predicts scenes of
blood and vengeance, as tho natural
consequence of the distress prevailing
at present. When it is remembered
that this sheet is read by and to igno?
rant negroes, without a possibility of
a corrective, or the* counteracting
influenc?" Of triith-for intelligent

of these mischief-makers will at onoe
appear stupendous. Take the fol?

C'OS VENING THU LEGISLATURES OF
Norna AND SOUTH CAROLINA.-Tho
Washington Chronicle, of Monday,
says: "On Saturday, General Grant I
received a telegraphic despatch from
General Canby, stating that ho had
modified Iiis orders, so aa to sanction |
thc proclamation of Hon. W. W.
Holden, Governor elect of North
Carolina, convening the Legislature
of that State, and also authorized
General Scott, Governor elect of
South Carolina, to issuo a similar ]
proclamation, tho condition in both
cases being that tho proclamation
shall not take effect until after tho
omnibus bill becomes a law. Should
the bill finally fail to become a law, of
course tho proclamations will bo of
no effect. Tho only object in issuing
them now, is to notify members of
tho Legislatures, so that thoy may
bo ready to meet as soon os possible
after the bill shall become a law. As
wo pointed out, a few days ago, this
is aa important matter, because
Congress will not bo likely to remain
in session much longer, and it is of
tho very highest importance that tho
Southern Senators and Representa?
tives should be admitted before its

Grant's approval of the step he has

Virginia. He declined the honor in
a letter BO manly, frank and delicate,
that we cannot refrain from making
an extraot. to illustrate tho diff?rence
between the Northern gontioman ana
tho car pot-bagger. .'" TO"'
Having thanked the Convention
for the honor of the nomination,
and observed that it is a proud posi?
tion, when perilous limes come upon
a people, to bo selected as their rep?
resentative by their free choice,
Gen. Stone says:
"It is not to be supposed that it
can have been a perfectly free choice
in this case. It is not to be supposed
that in a Virginia Senatorial District,'
comprising three large Counties, a
free ohoioe should set aside all the
gentlemen who were born and bred
in the district, and who have lived
honored in it from youth up, and se?
lect one, who, whilo yielding to no
one in a sincere and earnest devotion
to the welfare, and in desire to pro?
tect the rights and advance the inte?
rests of'the people of the district,
yet has been a resident in it only two
and a half years; one who was born
a Yankee, in Yankee land, and who
looks back to fivo generations of
Yankee ancestors, glorying in the
lineage. Public duty demands of a
man that he shall, if necessary for
the public good, sacrifice everything
that is his, save his self-respect.
That can never be required, and if
required, cannot be yielded.
"I should lose mine did I accept a
public trust not freely offered, and
climb to office by reason of the pre?
sent peculiar condition of pnblio
"While, by its Constitution, our
country claims to be a free republic,
resting upon the consent of the
whole people, no voluntary act of
mine shall appear to admit that it is
not one-and it would be apparent,
should I now be selected from among
my peers for the trust in question,
that one strong point governing the
choice, is my mere ability to freely
take an abominable test oath, which
disgraces the proposed Constitution
of the State, rendering ineligible
large numbers of tho most honorable
and most trust-worthy voters and
tax-payers within its limits. I can
never accept office under such condi?
What a rebuke this is to tho tribe
of adventurers, numerous as the
locusts of Egypt, that have over-rue
the whole South, absorbing all the
offices, and glorying in that whicfc
should be their shaun; ! Most ol
these birds of prey migrate to the
South, for no other purpose than tc
gorge themselves upon what the bat
tie has left. Not a few of them have
left their own country "for theil
country's good./' Instead of beinj
ashamed to "climb to office by rea soi
of the present pecnliar condition oi
public affairs," they would be
ashamed of themselves if they ne
glocted the opportunity. It.is not, ai
a general thing, for tho distinction o
tho offices that they caro to hnvi
them, but for tho emoluments ane
stealings, though there are somi
who really seem to think that ai
office confers honor, no mutter hov
it is obtained. General Stone de
serves the thanks of his own scctioi
for giving tho South at least ou
specimen of true, solf-respectin?
Northern manhood, which has si
long been disgracefully represente*

Sx. JOHN'S DAT.-Yesterday, tho
24th of June, was the day dedicated
to St. John tho Baptist, ono of tho
patron saints of tho Masonio Order, i
'.loathe middle ages," says a Ma? j
8onio exchange, "every oniiWwrnA in?
corporated, and had its own officers |
and regulations, as well as peculiar
privileges accorded to it by the
sovereign. It had its general meet?
ings on stated days, bat there was
always one day more honored than
the, rest-the festival that ia in tho
calendar appropriated tb a particular
saint, of which each corporation had.
one. The Masonio body are more
fortunate, for they have two patrons,
viz: St. John the Baptist and St.
John the Evangelist.
"On the 2?th, all over Europe and
America, the Masons meet and cele?
brate the festival of St. John the
Baptist. On these occasions, speech?
es are made, eulogizing this ancient
order, its great prosperity in modern
times, 'its glorious principles, its
faith, its hope, its charity, the many

but of which a correct record is kept
by the Almighty Architect, iu the
Grand Lodge on high, and which
will be displayed on the groat day as
bright jewols set upon the breasts of
the Kings and Priests of tho Eternal
Temple of Jehovah."
In these days of demoralization in
Church and State, it may uot ba
amiss on this occasion to revert
briefly tb.a distinguishing character?
istic of this man while iu tho flesh.
His uncompromising fidelity. The
exigencies of our times demand this
moral element as truly as did those
of the. day and generation in which
this herald of the Prince of Peace,
noted his part in tho world's grand
drama. Temptations to compromise
truth and principle are more than
ever powerful. Judges have soiled
the ermine, statesmen given the lie
to previous records, and preachers
pandered to prejudice cater still to
the popular tastes and the temporal
interests of their hearers. Snob
should learn of St. John: Know the
troth; and, knowing, dare maintain.

LETTER FROM MR. J. Q, ADAMS.
A letter has been received in Wash?
ington by a prominent Democratic
member of Congress, from John
Quincy Adams, of Massachusetts,
from which tho following extract is
"I can say, in respect to the men?
tion of my name in connection with
tho second place on tho Democratic
tickot to bo selected by tho Fourth of
July Convention, that I am an appli?
cant for no oflico under tho sun. My
courso at homo has beon dictated by
tho most disinterested obligations of
duty and preference. I feel that tho
accident of birth has thrust mo upon
the public attention rather before
my time; and also that this promi?
nence, connected with tho accident of
birth, involves a great deal of a cer?
tain kind of responsibility. If I cnn
acquit myself creditably under these
circumstances, and como off with nil
tho old family honors free of tarnish,
I shall bo content, and tho Vice-Pre?
sidency may find some one worthier
and more anxious than myself."

Give audi Grow Rich.
Tho citizens of Fairfield who offer
to give ft portion of their laud, free
of e'.ergG, to white settlers,.for the
encouragement of immigration, are
prudent and far-seeing men. .^Chere
is far more cleared land in thc State
than can be cultivated under our
present system of labor, and thero is
no profit in allowing one-half tho
area of a plantation to lay idle, or iu
exhausting and killing ono tract by
improvident management, and then
repeating the process on another.
While slavery existed, the bare
land -was of secondary importance.
It drew its value, from, the negro la?
borer, and this is patent enough now
that the richest plantations in the
State are selling for. a mere song.
At this time tho planter and farmer
have nothing but their fertile acres
upon which to depend. There is no
advantage to them in the increase of
their laborers, and at the end of the
year the difference between their ex-1
penses and tho money^ realized by the
sale of their crop is the absolute
measure of their failure or success.
But there is one means by which the
farmer can improve his position, aud
that is by supporting every project
which will immediately or ultimately
increase the value of his lands.
The surest way of making real es?
tate in South Carolina more valuable
is by stimulating white immigration.
Every immigrant will be,a consumer
as well aa a producer; he will be a
customer for tho store-keeper and
manufacturer, as well as the means
of bringing money into the State in
return for tho exported fruits of his
labor; he will be an element of solid
progress as well as one moro vote iu
favor of "white man" rule. The
immigrant will not, nevertheless,
come to our State unless great in?
ducements are laid before him. Fer?
tility, salubrity, a warm welcome, are
not enough; but offer him a farm,
make him at once n land-owner, con?
vince him that yon are acting in good
faith, and he will come and bring
with him his friends and connections.
Land, luxuriant land, is abundant,
and wo do firmly believe that the
State and the individual would be
the gainer, if every farmer iu South
Carolina were to bestow upon white
settlers one-third of his cultivated
and uncleared estate. The land
which was retained would be better
and moro carefully cultivated, and
th? increase in population and the
growing stability of the country
would make the remaining two
thirds worth more than the whole
would now bring in the most favor?
For these reasons, we say well
done to the people of Fairfield, and
express our hope that their sagacious
conduct will find imitators in every
section of the State.

Tho New York World says that thc
great issues of the coming Presiden?
tial contest aro tho powers of tho

States, which together amount to the
question whether constitutional go?
vernment in this country is a failure.
It does not consider the suffrage

tance, and nays: "Negro su Ara gc in
tho South will never be abolished by
Federal legislation, but only by the

we received, through the post office,
the anonymous letter appended be?
low. A* wo haye quietly awaited the
co u sc qu on ces of non-re tl act ion for
one week, and have failed to realize
them, we may with propriety reply
now. In tho first place, we regard it
more likely that a "carpet-bagger,"
or "soalawag," or negro, wrote it.
than "a soldier." Of course the re?
mark was intended only for those
whom the oap fitted. So. far as the
officers and men at this post are con?
cerned, we are free to say, and pleased
to be able to say, that Columbia has
been particularly fortunate in this
respect. "With few exceptions, the
officers and men on duty here hav?
borne themselves with great consi- .
deration, and even kindness, and have
attracted the regards and respect of
the citizens. Of course, the very ,
presence of a Federal uniform is
somewhat irritating to most jokaSraa*..
as it is a reminder of our defeat-but
when the wearer shows a becoming
consideration for the rights and sen?
timents of those who were foemen '
worthy of any soldier's steel, the
manhood of our people reciprocates
this gonerous feeling, and forgives
even when it cannot forget:
