Again, the Englishman says, "I beg par

interrogatively. Now, all these expres?
sions are well enough in their places, and
tho only absurdity about tho matter is
that each party defends his own provin?

Tho Newpiork Tribune, a short tim?
since, in reply to ft lotter written ny
Henry \V. Bennett, of Iowa, calling the
paper to account for denouncing the
"Grand Army," reiterates its charges,
and speaks as follows:
These men combine for political pur?
poses. They propose to keep olive the
wrath and bitterness of that dreadful
time. They mean to control conven?
tions and nominate men to office-to
perpetuate in our civil system the bitter?
ness of -war." We believe the soldiers
should receive abnndaut reward. When I
a soldier and a civilian apply for office,
all things else being equal, we should
prefer the soldier. But we dislike this
making a privileged class, aud especially
we dislike this getting into u corner, and
having pass-words and grip*, and making
an exclusive olass.
Washington foresaw this when he op?
posed tho Society of the Cincinnati. He
saw in this association the first step to?
ward an aristocracy, and he declined to
ally himself with it. What Washington
said should be remembered now. How
is an association more numerous and
more powerful than tho Cincinnati,
which purposes to over keep alive a war
with brothers aud follow-countrymen, to
exult in victories over Americans, to re?
joice over tho destruction of men in
whose blue veins runs tho blood which
courses in our owu, and who, whatever
their crimes or errors, aro of our own
country? We say, let all the memories
of the past sink into the hell to which
they belong. Let ns think only of tho
wounds to be healed, of harvests to grow
again, of sens once more covered with
our cominerco, education to tho oppress?
ed, justice to all.
We say this, and sacrifice none of the
principles defended by Mr. Bennett. He
is, no doubt, earnest iu his belief that
his work is worthy. But. there are bold,
crafty and bad men, who look upon theso
societies as so many instruments for their
own advancement. They propose to ally
themselves with this military govern?
ment, with no moro claim upon it thau
Theruadier, in Hugo's novel, had to be
called the Sergeant of Waterloo. He
followed tho army, aud robbed the bo?
dies of the slain. The true soldier
sheathes his sword, and buries it in tho
closet, and it remaiusjan heir-loom. He
becomes a citizen, and makes no claim
for political honor but that of citizen?
ship. Above all things, he does not
carry his epaulettes aud ribbons, his
wounds and bruises, to it political con?
vention, to bo knocked down to the
highest bidder. There may be many of
these men unwittingly iu the Army of
the Republic, who probably entered with
the views of Mr. Bennett. They will
soon seo how they may bettor occupy
Especially do we entertain these views
when wo lind in thc declarations of these
secret soldier associations so many ex?
pressions of madness. The true soldier
is thc most generous of foemen. Tnko
the great captains who commanded the
contending hosts. Do we lind Grant, or
Sherman, or Sheridan, or Thomas, or
Meade, assembling together and howling
for more blood, more strife, more bitter?
ness? Do we fiud Lee, or Longstreet, or
i?.Illiston, or Beauregard insisting that
the hates of secession shall be prolonged?
These men fought their fight aud ended.
Their anger ceased with the echo of the
last guns fired in anger. From this Grand
Army of tho Republic now parading
through political conventions in the
West, commanded bj' the captains of the
caucus, the lobby, and the biir room, wu

public which carried our banners over
a hundred fields under the eye of Grant.
Shermuu aud Sheridau. We denouueo '
this new secret association as out of sym?
pathy with the true Republican party,
aud as inimical to the Constitution and
Union. It will be a sad day for our
party when soldiers find no better work
than to prowl over the battle field of tho
past and dig up the bodies of the slain.

TERUWIIB CONFLAGRATION IN HOBBY
COUNTY.-We learn from the Horry Neues
that ono of thc most extensive fires ever
known in that section has been raging
for the last two weeks in All Saints' Pa?
rish. It broke out near the upper cud
of Ocean Raj', not far from sea-shore,
and h s reached tho Wilson cstato lands,
on tho Waccatnaw, six miles above Con
wayboro, having burned over a distance
of nearly twenty miles. Tho average
breadth of the firo is unknown. Tho
country through which it passed is lite?
rally burned up. Bay after bay and
swamp after swamp havo been made
baro of all undergrowth, and thc trees
and timber completelj' destroyed. Tho
savannahs, with the turpentine boxes,
are made sterile wastes. Tho hot, dry
weather rendered it impossible to check
tho onward march of tao llames. It is
y t bnrniug, but will be likely lo stop its
career ou tho banks of the Waccatnaw.

FRUIT FROM THE PACIFIC COAST.-The
San Francisco papers are indulging in
interesting speculations on the subject of
supplying the New York market with Ca?
lifornia fruits weeks and months in ad?
vance of tho products of the New York
orchards. Two of tho largest fruit grow?
ers in that State have planted this year
orohards of from 5,000 to 10,000 cherry
trees, with special reference to meeting
the domand in New York city. Califor?
nia grapes and pears of the 1 hied quality
can bo furnished from July to January.
For some years post, apricots, peaches,
plums, pears, npples and grapes have
been transported from California to dif
I feront parts of Nevada and Idaho, the
trips occupying from five to fifteen days,
and sold at a handsome profit; and it is
argued that with tho employment of re?
frigerated cars, the dealer will bo able to
place fruit in New York at foir prices.

pears talkative on a sabjeot of whioh it

"The peopie of Columbus know only
two of the marderers of Ashburn, and
know them as the marderers only by
their own confession. Why are not these
two men brought to punishment? Sim?
ply because they were sent out of the
State by the radical military authorities,
and are protected from arrest by radical
officials. If the Tribune really wants the
murderers punished, can it not begin the
work by having sent back to Georgia the
only two mea known to have been par?
ticipants in the bloody deed ?"
