Saturday Morning. Hov. 28. lt
Th? Bankrupt Aot.
The o nly boon whioh hos beep con?
ferred upon the South by Congress,
since the War, ia the Bankrupt Aot.
Oar people, like all agriculturists,
have boon very slow in appreciating
its blessings, and few, in comparison
to tho numbers at the North, have
availed themselves of its great ad?
vantages. Thd period in whioh, by
the limitation of the Act, a person
may take this Aot, without paying
some proportion of his debts, is
rapidly drawing ito a close. After the
1st of January next, none, except
thoso who can pay fifty per cent, of
their dobie, -will be allowed tho privi?
leges of thia Aot. It is, therefore, a
mutter of the greatest importances to
oar planters speedily to take ad?
vantage of the time between this and
January next. There are thousands
of our planters hopelessly involved in
debt by the resulta of the war, and
will drag out a miserable existence, if
they do not relieve themselves of
their legal liabilities by throwing off
the burden at onoe and beginning
life anew. It ia the greatest folly to
delay, .under the circumstances.
Some planters have a foolish notion
that it is dishonorable to take this
Aot, that they will strive to pay all
their jost debts. While we respect
the sentiment, taking the Act affords
the only opportunity they have to
save themselves from the embarrass?
ment and vexation of constant liti?
gation, and to i.ccumulate property
to pay off their creditors at their will.
Tho law does not relieve them from
the moral responsibility of doing
what, to them, seems best, after they
are declared bankrupt.
England has had a Bankrupt Act
for 200 years, and her people are a
century ahead of America in lessons
of honesty. Let no planter lose
the golden opportunity now present?
ed by Congress, by apy hypocritical
notions of honesty.

General O. O. Howard has issued
his order providing for the discontinu?
ance of the Freedmen's Bureau after
January 1, with the exception of the
educational department and the col?
lection of money dne soldiers. The
military officers will be relieved and
the civilians will bo discharged, with
thc exception of from six to ten offi?
cers and clerks in each State, who
will be retained to conduct the resi?
di? of business. The following offi
cors will be allowed in this State:
Assistant commissioner and chief
superintendent of schools ; one dis?
bursing officer for educational de?
partment and payment of claims ;
two agents for payment of bounties ;
two assistant superintendents of
schools ; three clerks.
It looks as if a strong pressure would
bo brought upon Congress at the
coming session to compel a contrac?
tion of the currency by retiring the
legal-teuder notes. Already a return
to specie payments is talked of in the
shortest time possible, and there are
some who think it can be done by
merely passing a law saying that pa?
per is gold. In proof of this, it is
said that foreigners and capitalists
are buying up greenbacks in New
York and elsewhere, anticipating
that specie payment will be resumed
in the not very distant future. Sena?
tor Morton has already foreshadowed
a bill that he has prepared looking
to the redemption of greenbacks ;
and in addition the Washington Even?
ing Express Hearns^ that a funding
bill, like that passed by tho last ses?
sion, will be presented and forced
through Congress if it can be done.
The Republican party are not harmo?
nious, however, on the flnanoial ques?
tion. Mr. Butler's pertinacity in ad?
hering to tho greenback theory may
defeat the efforts of the contraction
ists and specie-paying advocates. Be?
sides, the West must be conciliated,
and this is no easy matter.

Dr. G. W. Lowinan, who was re?
cently appointed one of the County
Assessors for Lexington, by Governor
Scott, declines accepting the office.
Cable despatches assert that regret
is felt that none of tho workingman's
candidates, who failed for want of!
money and organization, will bo in
tho House of Parliament to represont
that new element in the Government.

MB. EDITOR : Tho monotony of
our little millage, (Williamston,) was
agreeably broken on Friday last, by
that most classic of amusements, a
tournament. . Tho day was olear
and cloudless, and at an early hom- >i
vast concourse of people were assem?
bled av ? appointed grounds, to
witness tue prowess of tho gallant
knights, whose names I give below
each sustaining most admirably the
knightly characters, which they had
for.the. nonce assumed s
E. H. Atf 1er, Knight of Cherokee;
J. A. Alexander, Seven Forks; G. W.
Bramlott, Williamston; Charles Cas
son, Buck Thorn Castle; George
Chaplin, Ellesley; J. S. Charles, Oak
Lawn; E. H. Hamilton, Fergus Mac
Ivor; V. E. MeBoe, Young Chevalier;
H. McKerry, Knight of Charleston;
Hex M. Perry, Spanish Chevalier;
Willie Smyre, Lone Star; J. C. Sulli?
van, Saluda; John Sullivan, Horso
Shoe; C. B. Tarrant, Rio Grande; W.
Ware, Ivanhoe; Clarence Ware, Gold?
en Grove; T. E.. Wore, Red Cross;
W. Wilson, Dutch Fork,
i At holf-past ll,,they rodejinto the
field, .escorted by ? band of music.
Proudly prancing chargers came.
Bearing Knights of every name.
The exercises wore well conducted,
the attentive Marshals keeping ex?
cellent order and the honorable
Judges-Cob E. Ware, Dr. J. L.
Woodside, Capt J. Arnold, Dr. H. C.
Epting-deciding skill and awarding
prizes, with prompt impartiality.
The first prize was awarded to H. M.
Who crowned as Queen of Beauty fair,
A maid whoso name was Anna Ware.
The second prize was awarded tc
J. C. Sullivan. Third prize to V. E.
McBeo, who chose as first and seconc
maids, Miss Anna Smyre; Miss Min
nie Gower. And all went merry as ?
marriage bell. Long will tho memo
ry of that gala day linger in these
hearts of ours. Ah ! It carried u?
back to the days of ancient chi
valry. And we sighed to thinl
knight-errantry was no more, anc
that the glorious, though fabulous
days of Don Quixote, had pass?e
away, never to return. And that th<
gallant Maclvor, before us, with hi
waving plumes and knightly bearing
was not the real chieftain of th
Highlands, but only a passing aeto
for one brief spell. But we shouli
not cloud the present with reflection;
on the past.
So, gallant knights, your course is run,
Your parts wero well, ah, thrico well done
Long will we of your prowess toll,
And now, bravo chieftains, fare-you-well.

The Presidout called the attention
of the Senate to the provisions of the

sence of, thc death, O? resignation of,
the Lientenant-Governor, the duty
devolves upon tho Senate to elect a
person to fill the vacancy. The Pre?
sident said he merely threw out the
suggestion to the Senate, as perhaps
it might be desirable on the port of
the body to elect an officer, and not
remove from thc floor one o' iii oil
working members. There is much
business and labor to be performed
by the members, who, he thought,
would be taxed to the utmost extent
of their ability, and by electing a
member of the Senate, or a member
of the House of Representatives, tho
member so elected will vacato his
seat. The Constitution did not pre?
vent them from electing any person
