Kladaeu U Power.
There nover yet was an instance in which
kindness has been fairly oxerciaed bat that
it has subdued the enmity opposed to it. Its
first effort may not succeed any more than
one shower o? rain will reclaim the burning
desert; but let it repeatedly shed the dew of
its holy influence upon the revengeful soul,
?nd that soul will soon become beautiful
with every flower of tenderness. An indi?
vidual can no more oppose the kindness
which is continually and steadily manifest?
ing itself towards him, than he can fan the
flame of violent anger in his soul, when the
purest and most charming music is flooding
his senses with its rich harmony. He will
as certainly submit to its winning power as
the compass-needle yields to the influence of
magnetism. It is not in human nature to
withstand a long course of kindness. Pride
and stubbornness may for a time stay the
tide of better feelings, like the waters of the
stream pent up by gathering masses of ice;
but these better feelings will accumnlate and
increase until they break dov,n pride and
stubbornness, and cause the repentant to
exclaim, like oneof old, "Thou knowast that
I love thee!"
There is no moral principle applicable to
private or domestic life, os the Newark
Journal truthfully says, which is not equally
applicable to publio affairs, whether between
one little society and another, or botween
State and State. Had tho policy of the
Republican party been governed by this
'principle in regard to the re-admission of
the Southern States, who doubts for a mo?
ment but what we should have avoided nil
the heart-burnings and jealousies, and all
the wrongs and outrages that a contrary
polioy has engendered? But the law of re?
venge and retaliation was permitted to
have sway, and the result has been, tho
Journal thinks, the creation of a feeling of
hate and bitterness, that a half century will
Look, too, at the enormous expense that
has been the consequence of so mistaken a
polioy; an expense not growing out merely
of the expenditure of dollars and cents, re?
quired by the reconstruction acts, but in
terrible evils inflicted upon the monetary
affairs of the country, by postponing tho ad?
vantages we could have seenred by au earl ie.i
rehabilitation of the South. The day will
come when tho scales will fall from the peo
pie's eyes, and they will bo enabled tc
discern the hideousness and folly of thu
unfortunate policy of reconstruction, ant
when they will look upon the party thal
originated it with the loathing it deserves.
Every person, bo he Democrat or Repub
lioan, who is possessed of a particle of hu
inanity, will rejoice that the President ha
ordered the release of Lieutenant Bruine
who has been so long in confinement ii
New York, on charge of piracy. L?ente
nant Braine was a Confederate naval oflicei
brave and devoted to his cause. By th
United States Government he was impri
soned, nud while ha has endured the sever
est suffering, tho authorities have persis!
ently refused to permit him a trial, or grui:
even a temporary release. There ii nothin
in the practices of civilized governments t
justify or present a precedent for such pe:
secution as he has endured.

Aufcnstn and tho Sontli Carolin? Railroad*
As an aot of justice, we copy from the
Charleston News, the following statement in
relation to the alleged ref neal of the South
Carolina Railroad to stop its trains at Gra?
"Two of the trains of the South Carolina
Railroad stop daily at Graniteville, both
going to and returning from Augusta, and
it is these trains which oonneot Augusta,
Colombia and Charleston. With one of
them the Columbia and Augusta Railroad
connected at Graniteville after its comple?
tion to that point. So far, then, tho South
Carolina Railroad cannot be censured, for it
gives Graniteville two trains each way every
day, and did give the Columbia and Augusta
Railroad a regular connection at that point.
But there is a third train-the Wilmington
and Augusta through train-which does not
stop at Graniteville. Tho reason is that this
third train was especially arranged for the
accommodation of through travel. It is a
train put on to compete with the East Ten?
nessee and Knoxville, and the Danville and
Charlotte routes, of which last route the Co?
lumbia and Augusta Railroad is now a part.
It is plain enough, therefore, that if the Co?
lumbia and Augusta Railroad were permitted
to connect with the "through train" at
Graniteville, the Charlotto route would at
once be able to compete, perhaps success?
fully, for the very business for which the
.through train1 was established.
"The Columbia and Augusta Railroad did
not dream of being able to connect with this
through train. Yet they abruptly changed
their schedule, broke connection with the
day train of the South Carolina Railroad,
and now endeavor to convince the public
that tho South Carolina Railroad stands in
tho way of their proper accommodation,
while the simple truth is that the whole
blame rests with tho Columbia and Augusta
"As already noticed, the connection nt
Grnuitoville was formerly made with tho
South Carolina Railroad day train, and the
chango was made without any notice being
givou to tho management of the lust mimed
rond, so that there waa not eveu the oppor?
tunity afforded them of matting the
change that was desired. And we cannot
even see iu what way Augusta would be be
nufitted if the now connection were allowed
to be made. Tho old day train arrived in
Augusta at about half-past ll o'clock iu the
afternoon; the through train an ives there
at 8 or 9 o'clock nt night By tho old ar?
rangement the Columbia mails could be dis?
tributed in Augusta by 5 P. M. ; under the
new plan they would not be delivered until
the following morning.
"The whole question is, atid we say it
without fear of contradiction, not ono of
public convenience, but oi convenience to
the Columbia and Augusta Railroad Com?
pany. This company can connect with
either or both of two daily trains which stop
regularly at Graniteville. For a time it did
connect with one of them, but it nott
changes its schedule and demands aconnee
tion with a 'through traiu'-a train whicL
never did stop at Graniteville, and cannot
do so without great loss of time, the dan
ger of missiug connection at Augusta, anc
a risk of causing far greater inconvenience tc
tho public than can or does grow out of tnt
delays to which the passengers on the Au
gusta road are exposed. Tho whole faul
lies at the doors of this Columbia and Au
gusta Railroad Company, and the August
Chronicle will allow us to say, in all courtesy
that the public 'should not be made ti
undergo inconvenience and vexation merel;
to gratify the ill-feeling against' the Souti
Carolina Railroad, a corporation which i
managed with as much liberality as ability
and with every possible regard to the cona
fort and convenience of the whole traveliii
CHECK OF THE COHAN REVOLUTION.-Th
revolution in Cuba would seem, from lat
telegraphic advices from Havaua, to ha?
received a severe if not fiual check in th
capture of Bayamo, tba headquarters of th
revolutionary government, which Count Va
maseda officially informs General Dulce 1
took possession of on the lGth instan
This may not prevent a guerilla warfar
for which tho Spanish race have a peculii
proclivity, and for which the motin tainot
regions of the island aro well adapted, fro
being carried on by the disbanded insu
gents, though at present it looks as if tl
further prolongation of the contest in ni
simpo would be hopeless. It must bo a
milted, however, that tho iusurrectio
which has now been raging throe month
has exhibited considerable vitality, and
its occasional successes over the trained st
diers of Spain, must have given the Cuba
engaged in it an idoa of their own streng
j which they never hud before, and which w
I be a dangerous consciousness in tho min
of a disaffected population.
Gen. Dulce, however, appears to be a pt
dent and conciliatory man, and tho plan
permitting Cuba to elect deputies to t
Cortes, if discreetly carried out, so as
send representative Cubans, may go far
quell popular discontent. In this count
tion it maybe mentioned, that a scheme vt
lately published in one of the New Yo
papers, on the authority of Senor Aseara
i one of the Cuban deputies now in Madr
as being tho plan of Gen. Serrano, chief
tho provisional government of Spain, whi
embraces a separate nationality for Cul
with au insular assembly, division of 1
Cuban budget from that of Spain, and
Captain-General appointed by tho ero
from tho civil or military list, as may
best. This was tho policy formed at a
cent meeting of the loading Liberals
Havana, and if it could prevail, would
move some of the principal causes of t
content in the island.-Baltimore Sun.

MR. EDITOR: Several of your correspond?
ents, very nhl and respectable no doubt, seem
to be wonderfully exercised as to the origin
of our PLANTATION BITTERS. SO long as
these Bitters aro all that wo represent them
to be, we do not know that it makes any
difference from whom they come, or from
whence they originated; but for the infor?
mation of the public generally, and old
Capt. Wentz in particular, wo will say that
ho told the truth, and that these Bitters
originated in tho West India Islands-that
many of tho ingredients have been favora?
bly used for over a century, but that our
combination of Calisaya is entirely new, and
our own. Tho rum and other materials are
the samo, and as yonr correspondent says,
a better Bitters and Tonic is not made. We
recommend them particularly for dyspep?
tics, fever and ague, debility, loss of appe?
tite, and in all cases where a tonic and
stimulant is required.
