Which U iy!
By reference to tho caleudnr of this
year, it will bo seen that the s apposed im?
mortal Fourth occurs on Sunday. In
view of thia, tho Pu ri tim s North, and
hypocrites East, West and South-men
and brethren, who despiso tho liberties
of our fathers, and war upon their con?
stitution-axe debating if Saturday pre?
vious or Monday following shall be glo?
rified as the glorious Fourth. Saturday
is preferred, ns followed by a day of rest,
and all Yuukcedoiu may be hard nt work,
on Monday morning, at their honest
trade of cheating, thieving and Barnum
ing the rest of mankind.
Tho Southern people and Southern
press tire not excited in the matter; it is
no longer a day they celebrate-it is set
now apart for tho godly, loyal, Puritanic
North. They might ns well celebrate the
anniversary of the Magua Charta, which
their English cousins conquered a feu
centuries back. It is to be hoped no
Southern man will burn a grain of pow?
der, no Southern boy ignite a Chinese
cracker, because of the nunual recur?
rence of the nation's natal day. It would
be mockery and treason to the men who,
ninety years ago, Btruclc for liberty.
Better British colonial taxation without
representation; better tho sundi tax upon
tea; better the paltrystamp act, adminis?
tered equally to all colonial inhabitants,
which Henry denounced us chains aud
slavery; better all these flagrant political
ills, under a royal George, than tho vul?
gar, brutal tyranny of this American oli?
garchy, with a fellow of Grant's record
in tho John sou'affair, with a sore-headed
poltroon as Sumuer, with a beast as But?
ler, and an army of adventurers, of the
lowest instincts belonging to human na?
ture, now adjusting the chains on South?
ern mon, and inciting former slaves and
savages to tho ravishment of their wives
and daughters. This is the fruit which
this famous day now yields to Southern
subjects. It gave them peace and liberty,
and oven prosperity, for a quarter of n
century. There is little ia the past his

people with all the vices attaching tt
humau nature, and without a virtue, ex

mutating pennies, which Franklin, in hi:
early poverty, appreciated, and iuocu

Ms. EDXTOB; WiU'you do me tho favor
to p^U?ish tho j>rocopd?lgs of the South
eru Historical Society, which you frill
find.?nclosed?' The* have been sent to
me fo?' publication fn p?r State, with a
request that I should invite the co-ope?
ration of our people in promoting tho
objects contemplated by the society.
These objects aro so fully and ubly set
forth in thc oflioial circular, that it is
only necessary-for-inepto call . attention
to that paper, and to express my hearty
concurrence in tho mensures it recoui
mends. Wo owo it as n sacred duty to
onr ancestry, the fathers of that republic
which exists now only in name; to our
children, whoso duty it will be to re-es?
tablish civil liberty on this continent, if
they hope to escape our fate; and, above
all, to thc memory of our heroic dead,
that we should pince upon record, where
the future historian of our late war may
find it, the true facts relating to our un?
fortunate but glorious struggle. By this
means ulone can we vindicate our princi?
ples, justify our cause, and preserve in?
tact that which alone cnn give value to
history-truth. The society which has
been organized in New Orleans has these
noble objects in view, and they appeal so
directly to the.heart of every true man in
tho South, that they need only to bo
presented to be endorsed. As soon as
the constitution a^d by-laws of the soci?
ety ave Bout to mo, they Hhall be pub?
lished, when I hope that branch societies
will bc established iu every District of
our State. In thc meantime, I invoke
in behalf of the society the raid"and co?
operation of every man who reveres the
ancient honor and renown of our State;
Who cherishes a proper regard for thc
great principles which have governed
her in the past; who believes that these
principles will yet be triumphant; who
wishes to vindicate the cause for which
wo fought, and who desires to preserve
untarnished the memory of those patri?
ots who died for " nt cause.

.-The 'following able addt^as-was rea
by tho Secret?ry-and Treasurer, Dr. J<
seph Jones, and unanimously adopter.
It very fully explains the object.** au
scope of the society:
? OFFICIAL CIRCULAR.
On the 1st of May, 18(39, after seven
preliminary meetings, a number of gel
tlemeii iu the city of New Orleans for tat
themselves into a permanent associaiioi
under the stylo of the "Southern Hi
torical Society," with the following ge:
j end outline:
A parent society, to hold its seat ar
its archives in tho city of New Orlean
with affiliating societies to bc organizr
in all tho States favorable to the obje
proposed; these in their turn branchn
into local organizations in tho difiere
townships-forming thus a wide fello<
ship of closely co-ordinated societies, wi
a common centre in the parent assoei
tiou in this city.
The object proposod to be accoi
plished is tho collection, clussificatio
j preservation, and final publication,
I some form to be hereafter determine
of all the documents and facts bearii
I upori the eventful history of tho pr
j few years, illustrating the nature of t
struggle from wljioh tho country has ji
emerged, defining and vindicating t
principles which lay beneath it, ai
marking tho stages through which
I was conducted to its issue. It is t
understood that this association shall
purely sectional, nor that its labors sh;
? bo of a partisan character.
j Everything which relates to this cri
cal period of our national history, pei:
j iug tho conflicts, antecedent or sub;
quent to it, from the point of view
j either or of both tho contestants; evei
thing, in short, which shall vindicate t
truth of history, is to bo industrioai
collated and filed; and all partios,
every section of tho continent, who sh
desire to co-operato in the attainment
these ends, will be welcomed to a sin
in our councils and our toils.
It is doubtless true that au accept
history can never be written in tho mi<
of the stormy events of which that h
tory is comprised, nor by the agoi
through whose efficiency they w<
wrought. Tho slroug passions whi
are evoked in every human conflict d
turb the vision and warp tho judgine
in tito scales ? whose criticism the J
cessary facts aro to bo weighed; even the j
relativo importance of."these facts con
not be measured by those who are in too
close proximity. Scops must bo afforded j
for the development of their remote
issues before they can bo brought Under
the tango ot a philosophic apprehension;
'and the secret thread bo discovered, run?
ning through all history, upon which il?
singlo fitots crystalize in tt?e'' unity of
somo'great providential plan, -
The generations of tho disinterested
must succeed tho generations of the pre?
judiced before history, properly termed
such, can be written. This, precisely,
is the work we now attempt, to con?
struct the archives iu which shall bo
collected these memoirs to serve for fu?
It is believed that invaluable docu?
ments are scattered over the whole loud,
in loose sheets, perhaps, lying in the
portfolios of private gentlemen, und only
preserved as souvenirs of their own
parts in tho historic drama.
Existing in forms so perishable, re?
garded, it moy be, only so much wnste
paper, by those into whose bands they
must fall, no delay should be suffered iu
their collection and preservation.
There is, doubtless, too much that is
yet unwritten floating only in thc memo?
ries of the living, which, if not speedily
rescued, will be swallowed in tho oblivion
of the grave, but which, if reduced to
record, and collated, would nflord the
key to many a cipher, in a little while to
become unintelligible for waut of inter?
All this various material, gathered
from every section, will need to bo in?
dustriously classified aud arranged, and
finally deposited in the central archives
of thc society, under the care of appro?
To this task of collection, we invite
the immediate attention and co-operation !
of our co-patriots throughout the South,
to facilitate which, we propose the or?
ganization of State and district associa?
tions, that our whole people may be
brought into harmony of action in this
The rapid changes through which the
institutions of the country are now pass?
ing, and the still more stupendous revo?
lutions iu the opinions of men, remind
us that we stand to-day upon the outer
verge of a great historic cycle, within
which a completed past will shortly be
enclosed. Another cycle may touch its
circumference; but the events it shall
embrace will be gathered around another
historic centre, and the future historian
will pronounce that in stepping from the
ono to the other ho has entered upon an?
other and Bcparate volume of tho na?
Let us, who are soon to bo iu that past
to which we properly belong, see that
there are no gaps in the record.
Thus shall we discharge a duty to the
fathers, whose principles we inherit, to
the children, who will thea know
whether to honor or to dishonor the
sires that begot them; and, above all, to
the dead heroes sleeping ou tho vast
battle-plains, from Manas-.3 to Vicks?
burg, whose epitaph history yet waits to
engrave upou their tombs.
The funds raised by initiation fees, as?
sessments, donations and lectures, after
defraying the current expenses, will be
appropriated to the rent or purchase of
a suitable fire-pr?of building for the
safe-keeping of the'archives.

Mn. EDITOII: It is with much pleasure
that a majority of this community have
witnessed your praiseworthy efforts in
behalf of their desire to celebrate Satur?
day tis the Fourth of July. Many good
reasons could be given for this prefer*
mee, but a few will probably suflice.
The 4th of July fall's on the day set
tpart as a day of rest by Diviue authority,
iud wc ave, therefore, compelled to
:hoose Saturday or Monday. It must
bo plain to tho minds of all that if a
uboieo should be made of Monday, the
Sabbath would indeed be made a day of
bustle and confusion in preparation for
the coming holiday, and the thoughts of
aid and youug would be centred on their
various plaus for celebrating the "(/lo
rions anniversary" of American inde?
pendence, instead of the Divine instruc?
tion that they ure accustomed to receive '
[..u that holy day. For this reason, above
nil, should wo e>bserve Saturday, and
keep Sunday ns elirccted by Heaven.
We .should manage to preveut our jolli?
ties from intruding upou our sacred du?
Another excellent reason for this pre?
ference is the inconvenience that thc fol?
lowers of nearly every branch of busi?
ness must be subjected to in the event of
choosing Monela}-. Marketing must be
done, tlaintics, toys, &c, must be pur?
chased, and many things will be wanted
that will not keep long in this hot
weather. lu short, every conceivable
plan of celebration must or will ba ou
tereel into; and if all branches of busi?
ness are conducted on Saturday, the
mechanics, (the vast majority of onr
citizens,) clerks, und others, not having
bael the timo to make their preparations,
would, iueleetl, have a dull Fourth.
It is hoped and believed, Mr. Editor,
tho understanding has become general
that the citizens of Columbia intend to
celebrato Saturdny. The teachers of thu
Marion Street Methodist Sunday School,
appreciating the circumstances of this
case, have wisely determined to set apart
Saturday for their annual Sunday school I
celebration, which has hitherto been ob?
served on the Fourth of July. The
printers, I am pleased to see by your re?
marks on the subjoct, intend to have
their Fourth on Saturday. The colored
citizens, also, have decided to have their
procession anti celebration on the same j
day. I do not know that tho military
have fixed upon either eluy, but it is sup?
posed they will choose Saturday. I
think that if our honorable Mayor ami
Aldermen would publish their programme
of bell-ringing, Sec., for Saturday, it
would put au enel to all eloubt ou the
subject, and each and every one, with a
hearty good-will, would prepare for the !
same day. By all means let us have Sa- ?
turday for the frolic, and Sunelny for the
day of rest. Bender. I hope you are in
favor of Saturday. I AM.
In the drifting about of the radical
party in search of fresh issues to main?
tain it in power, we need not be sur?
prised if tho skeletons of all the old dis?
turbing elements of politics since the
creation of tho Government ure dragged
from their graves and rattled before tho j
public. It must have come about much
in this way, when the attempt was maelc,
in Chicago, the other tlay, to revive the j
old anti-Mason party; forty years ugo a
powerful organization at tho North. The
arguments adduced at tho convention
against Masonry and other secret socie?
ties belonged to the same old stock w hich
once agitated tho country, and the same
old convert, who was wont to betray the
most horrible secret?, was also there to
give in his confession. But ono politician
of note figured iu tho proceedings
Senator Pomeroy, of Nansas-tho con?
vention being maele up principally of in?
digent clergymen and the usual rag-tag
and bobtail, who mistake familiarity with

session of genius. Tho day luis gone
k'hen this oki folly can bo successfully
revived. The country is too full of monu?
ments to and testimonials of thc oharity
