War Against Hcaln-ivaa* ?nil Carpel.
Baggers-A JViiv Political Invention.
A uow way of Hiing '"carpet-bag?
gers" and "scalawags" of the Soutb bas
been proposed in Washington, where
the reconstruction Acts for "that lately
rebellious" section were blocked out by
Congress. The correspondent of n New
York paper says :
"Mr. W. H. Robertson writes to John
Tyler, asking him if it be not pruotionble
for thc conservative mon of the Soutb to
select sound Union men of the North?
men of respectability and intelligence
to voto for, agni. . t the wretched carpet?
baggers and scalawags who oiler them?
selves as candidates for ull tho offices in
the South. Mr. Robertson .says that so
many competent and honorable men aro
disqualified from holding office in the
South that respectable voters are either
compelled to vote for the carbet-baggors
or scalar ags or remain uwny from the
Mr. Robertson then writes:
"The Constitution of the United
States us it was, and oven in its present
deformed and mutilated condition, con?
tains nothing to prohibit Virginia,
Texas or Mississippi, or any other
Southern State, from choosing its Rep?
resentatives and Senators among the Citi?
zens of Indin?a, Illinois, New York and
Now Jersey, and tho other Northern
States, if tho peoplo of tho South choose
to do so. No previous particular length
of residenco is required to render such
citizens qualified to act. One day's prior
Sojourn is sufficient to mcot. any require?
Mr. Tyler, in reply, soys that he
thinks there are very mauy high-toned
citizens of the North who would consent
to throw themselves into the breach to
save their suffering brethren of the
South from the "scalawag" and "carpet?
bagger" if properly pressed and invited
- to office, and there is no doubt that he
speaks the truth. But he doeB not say
whether his political invention would
find any moro favor with the "respecta?
ble" voters of tho South than the "car?
pet-baggers" Lave received.
The ubove is copied from a Baltimore
paper. This paper, commenting on Mr.
Tyler's reply, says: "He (Mr. Tyler)
docs not announce 'whether bis political
invention -would find more favor with
the respected voters of the South than
the carpet-baggers have recoived. ' "
Mr. Robertson is correct in the parti?
cular "that office is denied to competent
and honorable men." We answer for it
that the occupations of office in this
special section of country, by good and
upright men, "like angel visits, are few
and far between." If such a plnu
as Mr. Robertson suggests bc at all
practicable, it eau ouly be so by those
"sound Union men of intelligence and
respectability," who would couseut to
throw themselves iutothe breach, buying
real estate iu the Sou th, acquiring a local
habitation und a name, owning property,
and paying taxes on the same, in the
section which they propose to represent.
The present carpet-bagger and scala?
wag, has at this moment such a start,
such an identity iu the minds of the
negro, that extraordinary efforts would
be required to counteract their influence.
No mun from the North may come here
-as it were on furlough-and expect to
undermine their pernicious ascendancy ;
but if he embarks his money in our
midist, buys land, enters into business,
it is not impossible thut ho may rout
these uucleau birds from their prey.
. We think tho new way would bo in?
finitely more palatable to the Southern
people, than the ancient class of peripa?
tetic politicians. "We cannot represent
ourselves-and disclaiming being invidi?
ous-we would say of two evils we choose
the least. This poor suffering South,
with every vein bleeding and every
muscio quivering under tho wholesale
torture administered by these wretched
robbers and marauders, we feel constrain?
ed to believe would gladly hail any
change which might render lighter, if
not entirely assauge, her suffering and
By all means let these high-toned
citizens of the '.North como among us
and try the experiment. It has been our
unspeakably bad fortune to have found
most of the citizens from tho North
making their homes with us anything
but "high-toned"-some exceptions have
happened in our experience, which we
cheerfully acknowledge tq tho contrary
and from our own experience, and the
sentiments avowed by others, wo would
say that the respectable voters of the
South would support a respectable man
of the North in preference-even by way
of experiment-to nuy of tho infamous
brood of leeches which are preying now
upon our vitals. Whether this political
scheme prove a success or not we cannot
say, but if it is possible, and can be tried,
wo feel assured so fur from finding
hinderuueo in the South thc respectable
voters will give it their hearty aid and

While he was sitting in his room read?
ing to his wife, on Tuesday last, ho no?
ticed, from the window overlooking n
field to tho right of tho house, that the
negro Pompey was plowing his (Mr. P.'s)
buggy Lorso unusually hard, when he re?
marked to his wife "I must go ont and
talk to Pompey about the horse. I had
to scold him once before, and he is mad
with me." He arose and wont to the
field, but had not been gone moro than
five minutes when Mrs. F. heard tho re?
port of a pistol. She called Esther,
(Pompey's wife, who was about the
house,) to run and see what tho diffi?
culty was; and os she started, a second
report was heard by Mrs. F., who imme?
diately ran out of tho house, when shu

Phelia, como here; Mass Bob has shot
hisself." She rau down tho Uno, follow?
ing Esther, who got over tho fonco first,
and to whore Mr. F. was lyiug on the
ground, about ten steps from tho fence.
Ou getting to the feuco, Mrs. P. said
"Pompey, you have killed him;" and in
trying to get over tho feuco she foiled,
from weakness or excitement, and called
Pompey, who was standing about four
rows from where Mr. F. was lying, hold?
ing tho horse, to assist her in getting
over, which ho did. When sbo got to
Mr. F. ho was lying ou the ground, un?
conscious, with a bolo ou tho top of tho
right side of his bend, from which blood
and brains were oozing out, bis right
band lacerated, und sigus of having been
bitten on two of bis lingers. His bat,
with a bolo in it, was lyiug under his
head, and a Colt's revolver about four
feet from bim. Mrs. F., with the assist?
ance of Pompey and Esther, carried him
to tho house. Sbo then ordered Pompey
to go to town (about one milo) after ii
physician, which ho did, after delays of
ono sort and another. Biding np to Dr.
Mathis' office, about a quarter past 10
o'clock, he called out, in tho bearing of
several citizens, "Doctor Mathis, Miss
Phelia says como to seo Mass Bob; be

citizens at onco started for Mr. F.'s

Everybody views Col. Flouruoy's death

BUTLER AND DECORATION DAY.-But?
ler's threnody at Gloucester the other
day was characteristic of its author. The
election of a Butler for the eulogist of
dead patriots was not particularly credi?
table to the good taste of the persons
who made it. One can imagine that it
would have embittered the pangs of dis?
solution to many an Union soldier, if be
could bnve foreseen that the doctor would
bo chosen as the exemplar and expositor
of tho heroic virtue which took bim to
the field. But if tbe friends of the Mas?
sachusetts soldiers do not object, why
should we? and, indeed, how can we with
any face, when we have bad Sickles do?
ing a similar service for ourselves? But?
ler, by the by, has the grace to distin?
guish the dead soldiers from himself in
the most emphatic manner, in claiming
for them that they entered tho service
without "hope of reward, save the re?
ward of well doing." The staple of But?
ler's oration is the same as those of the
similar effusions which have been drop?
ping for tho last three or four days from
eloquent lips all over the country. Its
lush tropiculity emulates tho bloom, and
tho odor of tho literalty floral tributes,
which were dropped ut the samo time on
the snn>e graves. In the main, it is the
same sort of sophromorical verbiage that
every orator is expected to exudo on such
occasions; and it winds up, of course,
with n stauza, which happens to bo the
most hackneyed verse of Marco Bozarris.

Whether tho exultant negro was posted

Ax P. EMERAL PuiL.osruY.-In tho last

of the Mobile Register, we find the fol?
I rather think the young Bourbon
Prince who is now in this city (New
York) is tho man for Imperialists. He
has nothing to do just nt present, and
would doubtless consent to run tho Gov?
ernment, if it were made an object to
him. You remember how this youthful
Prince ran away with a pretty Cuban
girl, and was married by ono of our po?
lice justices. The other day ho went with
his bride to church, and they were mar?
ried some more, and he is now living
with his wife and mother-in.law, at a
Broadway houso. A mau who hus been
married as much as he has been, aud who
is, moreover, in charge of a determined
mother-in-law, is about as strongly bound
to matrimony as a man can be, and mar?
ried he will remain in spite of the oppo?
sition of his royal relatives. It is, never?
theless, a sadly prosaic fact thal even
prince and princesses, and prinoely
mothers-in-laws caunot live without
money; and thc Prince's business-that
of being a royal highness-not being
profitable just at present, he and his
bride aro in a fair way to bo reduced to
the hand-organ and tamborino business
in order to live. Landladies fight shy of
them, and make wry faces at tho pros?
pect of having a Bourbon among them.
They doubtless already regret that their
I honeymoon is not made of green cheese,
for in that case they could live cheaply
while it lasted. Now what the Imperial?
ists ought to do is to make this young
? fellow Emperor. He has the blue-blood
of royalty in his veins, nnd ho has a
mother-in-law to infuse energy iuto his
government. By all means lot us havo

and 'posit my vote. And says my old

of a dark, cloudy, wet sort of a drizzly

I spec I bad better tako tho nmbrill. So ,

to whar tho road and path forked, and
Mr. Cole and mo tuck the path, as any
other gentlemen would, and arter ad?
vancing awhile, we arriv to old neighbor
Harris, setting on n log, with tho umbrill
on his arm; and about that time Elijah

got home, and was eating my supper,
and Elijah, which is my son-in-law, and

back somersaults, and then resumed
their scats. A big fat fellow who sat

never to reveal auything you see or

or to your wife?" I said "Pon my

my teeth and felt my tongue, then
groaned again. I said, "If you don't

A DOUBTER.-There was a man who j
! lived in Cass County, Georgia, many j
[years ngo, who had once been in tho
j State Legislature, and never neglected
?an opportunity to emphasize tho fact.
Ho was a perfect infidel as to new disco?
veries and new sciences, being well satis?
fied that if the world should turn over
all the water would spill out of his well,
aud only giving in to steam cars by slow
degrees. But all tho vials of his cou
tempt were poured out upon tho idea of
a telegraph, und be was wont to say that
nobody need try to como "the green"
over him in that way, for he had been to
tho Legislature. Finally, tho State rood
was built, and ono day workmen began
to put up telegraph posts right in front
of his house and to stretch tho wire.
His exultant neighbors thought they had
him on that occasioti, asked: "Well, old
fellow, what do you think of telegraphs
now?" He wus cornered, but died
game. Drawing himself up an inch
taller, he said: "Gentlemen, when I was
in the Legislature I gave this subject my
very attentive consideration, and I said
then, as I say now, that it may do for
ledern and small bundles, but it will
uover take a cotton bale, never!"

of this State, and the Act of the Legisla?

with tho Constitution of the United
States. The Judge has given an able
opinion on the snbject. Tho case, by
consent, was heard at chambers at An?
derson. The Judge has decided in the
same caso that the $1,000 is inclusive of
the value of tho dwelling houso and out?
buildings, and the appraisement having
excluded the estimate of the dwelling in
tLis case, and unsigned $1,000 in land, a
re-appraisement was ordered.
