WHY GOM> DOES NOT RISE JUST
Now.-r-The Baltimore Gazette gives a
singular explanation of the recent
fall in gold, or, rather, the reason
why it does not continue tb rise.
That journal says that certain Ger?
man bankers are about to ship one
million of dollars in gold to New
York for the purpose of lending it
ont on United States securities. By
the withdrawal of a million of bonds
thus hypothecated from the market,
or of bonds to any extent that may
be necessary to effect the object in
view, the Gorman capitalists hope to
secure a firm market here, which
would thus enable them to dispose
abroad of their own United States
bonds, if not at a profit, at least
without sustaining any material loss.
By no paper in the North is jos
tice to the South more fairly and
fearlessly meted out than by the Bos?
ton Post. Referring to Gen, Hamp?
ton's speech, at Anderson, S. C., on
tho 19th instant, it joins in his refu?
tation of the radical charge that the
South have not accepted the end of
the war in good faith, in the follow?
I 'The cry for substantial and lasting
peace comes from nowhere so loudly
as from the hearts of the suffering
South, and tho election of Seymour
and Blair affords tho only opportuni?
ty of obtaining the wished for boon.
More deeply than we at the North do
they realize what a fearful stake is
dependent upon the result of the
election in November, and they will
do their part in the great struggle
"for life, hbei'ty and the pursuit of
MAINE.-A correspondent of the
Herald writeB as follows:
"Further investigation in the inte?
rior of the State shows iaoroased
hostility to the radical Congressional
ticket by tho laboring masses. The
lamber booms are. almost deserted.
The ship-yards are barren monu?
ments of ruined fortunes, and their
operatives are at work on the farms.
The radicals are denounced for rob?
bing them of their occupation, and
their votes will be generally thrown
for the Seymour ticket. Radical
leaders admit that several towns on
tho Kcunehou and Androscoggin,
last year radical, will swell up Demo?
cratic majorities, and that Augusta
will wheel into Une. The Republi?
cans have entered into the canvass
with renewed energy.
The mulatto fellow who was at
Williston, a week or two ago, for the
purposes, as he said, of taking down
the names of colored Democrats, as
they wero to bo shot or banished
from the country, has been at several
plantations below Barnwell Court
House, recently, deluding tho poor
negroes by telling them that he is a
surveyor, and that he has come to
measure off their land. By this means
ho got many of their chickens, eggs,
&a, which he barters off. As be
brought no mule, some of the more
intelligent olass of freedmen have
discovered the trick, and aro after
him with sharp sticks, swearing re?

An Irish and Italian Demooratio
Club was organized in Charleston,
j MR. EDITOR: I would respectfully
suggest, through your paper, to the
Demacra tic,Clubs of the State, that,,
in our opinion, the whites would auc
oeea much better in making Demo?
crats of tbe colored population, if
the Democratic Clubs would detail
certain suitable members of their
clubs to talk to the colored people.
The plan that has met with success
in the neighborhood of the writer, is
for some sensible man to collect the
negroes of his neighborhood together,
and not make a ?peech, but a talk,
and ascertain the complaints that
the negroes make against the Demo?
cratic party, and show them the
folly of their objections. Mass
meetings do very little good with
this class. Democratic Clubs that
have tried this plan have met with
much success, and South Carolina is
the State for us to try every means.

If a white man bad killed a negro,
as Smith was killed, what would
have been the consequences?
MB. EDITOR : On Friday morning
last, between 8 and 9 o'clock, as the
mail carrier between Lexington C.
H. and Mount Willing, in Edgefield
Distriot, was pursuing bis journey,
he was waylaid near the line of
Edgefield and shot from his horse.
The assassin shot at him five times,
the lost shot only taking effect. The
ball struck near the hip joint and
lodged, it is supposed, in tho bowels.
The carrier was an old colored man,
upwards of sixty years of age, and
was a man of irreproachable charac?
ter-distinguished for his urbanity tc
all white people. The service on the
route will necessarily cease from this
date. B. J. HAYES,

We are in receipt of your favor o
the 20th inst., covering a newspape:
slip, relating to an attack on us bj
Montgomery, of Newberry, ant
thank you for the attention. Th?
fellow is a bally and a coward, aili?
nn worthy of notice. He shelters him
self behind his accidental position
and utters a libel he would not dan
to publish under other circumstances
To gratify any curiosity, you ma]
have to learn the ground of his hos
tility, and tho petty malice he ex
hibits, we will briefly state, that th
firm of Montgomery &. Miller wer
insured by us, in the sum of $3,000
on their stock of groceries, Novena
ber, 1865; subsequently, Miller soli
bis half interest to Montgomery, bu
made no transfer of tho policy-unde
the conditions of the policy, (coudi
tions common to nil policies,) thi
"change in title or possession" reu
dered the policy void. A firo aftei
wards occurred, damaging the stool
Montgomery made an exorbitau
claim, stating his loss in his proof, ti
$2,495.34. In reality, according t
tho best evidence we could get, hi
real loss under the policy, providin
the same had remained binding, wu
not one-half whut ho claimed; bi
though ho had no legal claim on v
for a dollar, yet, looking at it in tb
light of equity, as wo do all houei
claims for loss, we concluded to poj
and did pay him $1,150, taking hi
receipt and discharge in full. Thi
is the whole story, briefly told; an
you will perceive he has nothing <
complain of, but liberal and bono
able treatment; and to one who mui
be conscious that he was unwortli
of it, this may bo regarded, perhap
as good ground for complaiut HU
legislative interference. The nttac
of such a worthless fellow, is hare
less. Your good people kuow tl
value of our policies; and the recoi
of losses paid by us, for three year
(a copy of which you have,) sho;
that we have paid to citizens of tl
Southern States, during that tim
the sum of $654,546.46. If they ci

with the same privileges in one s<

for there is, properly speaking,
euch thing as a sublime style. T
sublimity lies only in the thing; ar

To J. C. Jannet/, Esq.
MTDEAHSIR: Your fellow-citizens,
who know you well, know yon to be
a kind-hearted, benevolent and most
humane man. Words of kindness
are always on your lips, and the in?
dustry yon . ive shown in finding
out and informing ns who the Gover?
nor of the State is, surely most bo
considered an act ff great kindness
to the people of South Carolina. A
stranger won.J suppose that the peo?
ple of the State must know some?
thing (and should know everything)
about the character and antecedents
of thh gentleman who has I ien elect?
ed to a place of authority by them?
selves. But, strange to say, suoh is
not the fact. Why not, with the
same benevolence, go on and tell us
who is Gov. Pickens, or Gov. Bon?
ham, or Gov. Magrath? By the way,
do you think that you are better
known than Gov. Scott? The peo?
ple did not, nntil your act of kind?
ness, even know the name of Gov.
Scott, (whether it was Walter or
Robert;) but now they are informed
by you after he has been chosen by
them. This is singular. Doubtless
many of your fellow-citizens were
equally at a loss to know whether the
Governor came from Scotland (and
had, therefore, never been natural?
ized,) or whether he was from Ohio
and required only two years residence
to qualify him for his place. In all
these matters you have conferred a
lasting obligation upon those who
elected him. We now, through your
kindness, begin to know who the Go?
vernor is, and wo must, certainly
respect him tho moro when ho is
endorsed by you, and wo learn, for
the first time, that he has never been
a lawyer, but has, all his life, been a
doctor of medicine. You tell us he
has been mixing pills and alleviating
suffering all his life. In his present
position ho certainly is not out of his
sphere. He has a very sick patient
to oure; some say, laboring under a
disease called tho black vomit, caught,
in part, from the Governor himself.
We trust that the doctor will bo
equally skillful now as in the past,
and that ho may not have to resort to
the scalpel. It may be, however,
that while ho is excellent as a physi?
cian, he may not be so good as a sur?
geon; in other words, in the use of
instruments. Be good enough, if you
please, my dear sir, to draw upon
your kind heart again and inquire
into this last matter, and inform your
obliged fellow-citizens. How is the
doctor as an accoucheur? Yours

made by Secretary McCulloch on

his official statement on the 31st of
Marah, 1865, at the close of the war:

[Washington Evening Star.
General DavidJiHunter, the Presi
dent of the military commission that
tried end convicted Mrs. Barratt, is
out in a card this morning, denying
the statement first made in radical
papers, that he had refused to sign
the application for the pardon of
Mrs. Surratt. He says in his card,
that he bas "always looked with otter
contempt on the execution of the
poor- woman/' Tbus, one by ono,
the members of this court are trying
to get away from responsibility in
this case. Mr. Bingham, tho judge
advocate of the court, says he pre
pared the petition for pardon, and
added that every member of the
court, with one exoeption, signed it.
That exception, tho radical papers
said, was Gen. Hunter; and now the
latter not only denies it, but says he
"looked with utter contempt upon
tho execution of the poor woman."
Gan the members of the court explain
why it was, then, that Mrs. Surratt
was pronounced equally guilty and
deserving of death with Paine,
Herold and Atzerodt? Why was she
pronounced one of tho chief crimi?
nals, instead of being placed in the
category with O'Loughhn and Mudd,
who were not adjudged gnilty of
offences deserving of death? It is
rather late in the day for the mem?
bers of the court to attempt to escape
from tho responsibility of Mrs. Sur
ratt's hasty execution. *

BuTLEU'a NEW ORL?ANS CAREEH,'
Tho New York Sun, in its issue of
the 17th instant, asks for evidence of
General Butler's propensity to ap?
propriate the spoons of others. The
instances are innumerable, and are
easily susceptible of proof. As a
specific one is required, we will select
that of Dr. Campbell. Daring .the
occupation of the city, Butler seized
bis house, and, upon its restoration,
the silver was retained and carried
North by Butler, some of it having
Hinco been seen in bis own residence.
It consisted of nine dozen pieces, all
marked. A suit for its recovery is
either about to bo, or has already
boen brought against the spoon-fan?
cier. It is notorious that the first
act of Butler was to institute search
for silver-plate, all of which he pro?
fessed to confiscate in the name of
the United States. So actively did
he prosecute the search that many of
tho resident families endeavorded to
transport their plate to Europe. Mr.
Hamilton Wright and Mr. Gillis, two
of our most respectable merchants,
were arrested and sent to Ship Island
on this charge. In one case, Butler
succeeded in capturing the silver; in
the other, it eluded his vigilance. H
tho New York Sim ! is sufficiently
honest ia its dosiro to investigate
this Hubject, we shall return to tho
subject nguiu, with numerous other
well credited and traceable charges,
selected from tho host nf instances of
the spoon spoliation, either commit?
ted by Butler himself, or in his
name by the creatures under him.
