Friday Moratory Beeember 31,1869.
T*Km LMt Dary Ot 1809.
The last dey of tho present year greets
us to-day. Aa year after year passes by,
we are reminded of the shortness of hu?
man life. And the reflection naturally
arises, that it is obviously wise to make
the most of the fleeting years-tho most
for time and tho most for eternity. On
thia day, moreover, the question natu?
rally occurs, aa to how wo havospent the
year passing away. Have we improved
tho time vouchsafed to us? Have virtuous
or vicious acts predominated? Are we
advanced in wisdom? Ara we nearer to
or farther off than ever from that stan?
dard which we are commanded to ap?
proach ? In fine, does 1869 leavo ns bet?
ter or worse, as men and oi tiren s. than it
found ns? These are pregnant queries.
Each one will answer for himself, and
belter answer now than defer it until the
questions are pat at the Bar of Judg?
ment. At any rate, whatever our past
may be, let ns see to it that we take oare
of the pr?tent and tho future. As hoads
of families, aa individuals, os members
ol the State, let ns seo to it that we meet
-at least hereafter-the demands of
. dcty. The duties which we cwo to our
God, to oar families and to our country
-these comprise the business of life.
On this day-the lost of tho present year
-it is meet that mon should deliberately
and calmly determine their futuro course.
"Life is real," and we must not deal with
it as if it.were a shadow. "Life is
earnest," and we must not treat it with
unbecoming levity. "The grave is not
its goal," and we must not regard it as
beginning and ending on "this dim spot,
whioh men call earth." For our rendors
we have no words but those of cheer.
It is trae that our political situation is
unpromising. It is true that at Wash?
ington and Columbia our public affairs
are sadly mismanaged, and often we find
the "pillars of Statu" no moro than
"whited sepulchres." It is truo that a
kind of political madness rules the im?
mediate present. But wo deem this state
of affairs temporary only, and we expect
to see, ero long, better and purer days.
Tn the meantime, we commend our
readers to that patience, pereevoronce
and activity whioh will bring their re?
wards in due season. It is said that "a
brave man straggling with the storms of
fate, is a spectacle fit for gods as well as
men." As men, as a people of noble
ancestry, let ns manfully and resolutely
work ont our fortanes. If the fates seem
adverse, if the battle seems to bc going
against us, the more important it is that
true and brave men pass to tho frout.
In this spirit, let ns as men aud Caro?
linians, resolve to meet the conflicts and
duties ' that another year may bring
"Heart within and God o'erhcad."
Bullock dates his proclamation, bays
the New York World, from Washington,
convening the old piebald Legislature of
Goorgia on January 10. Doing execu?
tive duty from Washington as the capi?
tal of Goorgia, in pursuauco of tho poli?
tics of the period, is indeed appropriate.
Now, do the conservatives of Georgia
want to know how to pull tho teeth out
of this lost Act romaudiug their Com?
monwealth to military rule? Let less
than a quorum of the Legislature con?
vene ou tho 10th proximo. Let that less
than a quorum adjourn over from day to
day, as they would havo power lo do and
as they should do, until January 16, tho
regular time for the session to begin
under the laws of the btate. Then let
the conservative members-who aro in a
majority, even counting in tho old negro
members-proceed to re-scat these latter,
iu accordance with thc recent decision
of the Supremo Court of tho State, de?
claring tho original expulsion of tho
black brigade unconstitutional. Thc
strongest requirement of tho lust law
will then havo been met, but under State
auspices and in concurrence with what
has long been thu intention of tho Le?
gislature itself; not under rump duress,
as this bill contemplates. Such a course,
too, while saviug the prido of the Stale,
will so favorably affect tho returning le?
gislators themselves as very possibly to
win them ovor to the impeachment, con?
viction, and deposition of Bullock ut thc
proper season-a result which that car?
pet-bagger too prematurely thought he
had rendered out of tho question by
Congressional tinkering in his behalf.

A. Beaufort correspondent of the
Charleston News speaks thus dolefully of
tho condition of the colored people in
"The negroes in Beaufort obtained
horses, furniture and provisions without
cost, and land at a nominal price They
have worked alter a fashion for threo or
four years; for a long time they had the
comfort and support of the Freedmen's
Boroau. And now they are worse off
than they were iu slavery timeB."
The New York Times bas aa article on
Mr. Sohenok'e loyal outburst in Con?
gress, advorse to the proposed action for
tho rcooption in tbio country of the re?
mains of Mr. Peabody. It cays:
"Beantiful Is the loyalty that ob ant?
from the house-top's, that never'ceases to
sing, in season and out of season, and
makes an eternal hymn of ita own merits
and sufferings. Beautiful among sing?
ers is our own Sohenok, of Ohio, whose
dissenting diapason of devotion to the
Union mingled with tbe repelling gales
that arrested the homeward journey of
Mr. .Peabody's remains. All that the
poor merchant seeks is a grave. All that
his friends wish is honorable burial. All
that the people desire is somo word of
complimentary recognition of his deeds.
For the deeds of this man shine out like
the radiance of the sun, to be a sweet,
noble, chastening influence to the end of
time. Nor will our valiant General's
discord dim it. The world is better, be?
cause Mr. Peabody lived. We trust mon
will say this of our loyal Representative,
when he comes to take his rest under
the daisies. We are not wanting in re?
spect to the turbulent loyalty of onr gal?
lant Representative, by taking a Christ?
mas morning lesson from the story of
Mr. Peabody's lifo. True charity is silent
charity-we might say, true loyalty is
Yes, that might bo safely said, says the
Baltimore Sun, and it could be easily
proved, at loast to this extent, of any
virtue, that tho stream which is deepest
is less noisy and fretful that that which
is shallowest. And perhaps it is equally
safo to suspect tho profoundness and
power of auy passion or sentiment which
is moro frequently illustrated by words
than action. Mr. Schonok does not
stand alone, however, in the propensity
to wear loyalty, at all seasons and on all
occasions, in his button-hole, like an ar?
tificial nosegay, which is not likely to be
injured by exposure to any kind of
weather. There is not a cheaper com?
modity than this lip patriotism, and
never was a word moro abused thou
"loyalty" has been in this country.
Thoro havo been as many crimes com?
mitted in the name of "loyalty" as of
"liberty." It cannot bo said of the mo?
dern kind of "loyalty" that it is like
"true charity," either in silenee, or in
any of tho qualities attributed to that
virtuo by the inspired penman, especially
where ho says that charity "boasteth not
itself" and "thinketh no evil" of others.
Self-assertion and evil thinking aro of
the very essence of modern "loyalty."
Wo cannot conceive that this country
eau lose anything in reputation, or risk
Lhe encouragement of disloyalty among
its citizens, by honoring such a mau as
Mr. Peabody. To impeach his loyalty
partakes of the samo suicidal folly which
represents all of tho American people
who do not sanction the political policy
of the dominant party as disloyal, a pro?
position which, if it could bc established,
would prove that at least half tho people
of this country are unfaithful to their
own Government. If such a monstrous
scandal were credible, what would be its
effects upon the reputation of tho Go?
vernment? When, iii addition to this, it
is insinuated that a man like Mr. Pea?
body, whoso whole lifo was so illustrious
for virtue und boueficenco that nations
and crowned heads have risen up to do
him honor, was disloyal, tho world will
conclude that such a charge is us damag?
ing to a Government which could not
command thc approval of such a man,
ns to him to whom it is imputed. For
Innately, no ono believes thc imputation
of disloyalty, either ns concerns Mr.
Peabody or the millions of Americans
who aro not extremists. Mr. Peabody
nover iu his lifo exhibited any indication
of disloyalty, except that it was his cus?
tom to bestow benefits, and not to bo a
recipient of them, especially those of a
pu lil ic, character. In those Christmas
times let us cultivate tho charitable hopo
that George Peabody was as puro a pa?
triot as even General Schenck, and that
his deeds will he us prolific of future
blessings to the country, both in tho les?
son of virtuo which muy be learned from
his example, iu tho relief of human sor?
row, and in tho diffusion of the means of
education, as tho most patriotic oratory
that has been rampant of lato years in

The following remarks on tba above
subject, whioh we talus from the Manu?
facturer and Builder, weoommend to onr
"There is one important practical truth
connected with this subject, and one that
can never be told toe often, aa upon it
depends the comfort of the great man
of our people. It is this: that in order
to bo wealthy, that is, to have such a
competence as secures independence and
comfort, men must save. Would that it
might be written a hundred times upon
tbis page, and each one cf tho hundred
read a hundred times. To save, is the
practical point of the subject, and the
one that should ever be insisted on. It
matters not what may be the theory of
political economists as to wealth and the
means of production, unloss it bo one
which can bo practised by the great mass
of tho laboring peoplo. The products
nf labor, or wealth, are constantly
changing, constantly being consumed in
nse, and must be constantly renewed;
thorofore, mau may as well accept, with?
out a murmur, the fact that he must lead
a live of labor, and not of play. It is
unwise, and, in the main, useless, for the
majority of the activo men of to-day to
seek for large fortunes, that is, to become
millionaires, simply because it is impos?
sible. But on tho other hand, there is
no reason why our industrious laborers
of all sorts should not become possessed
of sufficient wealth for comfort. The
great trouble lies in tho fact that voling
men do not begin to save while they aro
young. All who will begin eorly by sav
iug will hud a happy surprise in a few
years, in the verification of tho Scotch?
man's proverb, that 'many a little makes
a mickle.' Put two dollars in tho sav?
ings bank at tho age of twenty, and cou
tiuue to do so each week until fifty, and
there will bo a snug little fortuuo for a
mau and wife; fail to do this, and thoro
will bo nothing. Begin by small savings
rather than not begiu nt all, for tho liueat
showers often begin with a few gentle
drops. One great causo of tho poverty
of tho present day is, tho fuilnro of our
common peoplo to appreciate small
things. They feel that if they caunot
Bave largo sums they will not Bave any?
thing. They do not realizo bow a daily
addition, be it ever so ?mall, will soou
make a largo pile. If tho young mon
und yonng women of to day will ouly
begiu, aud begin now, to save ii little
from their earnings, and plant it in the
soil of some good savings bank, and
weekly or monthly add their mite, they
will wear a happy sinilo of competence
and independence when they reach mid?
dle lifo. Not only thc pile will itself in?
crease, but tho desire and tho ability to
increase it will also grow. Let clerk and
trudesman, laborer and artisan, make
now, and at once, a beginning. Store
np somo of your youthful force and vigor
for futuro contingency. Let parents
teach their children to begin early to
savo. Begin at the fountain-head to con?
trol tho stream of extravagance, aud the
work will bo easy. Ohooso between
poverty und riches. Let our youth go on
in habits of extravagaooe for fifty years
to como, as they have for fifty years past,
aud wo shall be a uation of beggars, with
a moneyed aristocracy. Let a genera?
tion of such as save in small sums bo
reared, and we shall ba freo from all
waut. Do not be ambitious for extrava?
gant fortunes, but to seek that which is
the duty of every one to obtain- inde?
pendence and a comfortable homo.
Wealth, and enough of it, is within tho
reach of all. It is obtainable by ono
process, and by one only-saving."'

MB. EDITOR: WO havo heard all our
Utrea of the "Bara Avis," and so? send
him to you in the shape ol . white hawk,
killed on the 29th, at Deadfall, in New?
berry, by Thomas 8. Blair, Esq. It is
the mate and female of tho common largo
rabbit hawk, and has been seen in this
immediate settlement often, e*er sin oe
1864. It measures four and-a-half feet
from tip to tip. An old widow here says
it catches two chickens at a grab. Yon
see nature herself revolts at tho new
order of things nnd ia struggling for
white supremacy. I suppose naturalists
would call him an Albino, but he turned
white at the wrong timo and must there?
fore be reconstructed by being skinned,
gutted, and stuffed with chaff, juBt as wo
are being dono by now politically. Bo
we desire, after having eyed it to yonx
satisfaction, that yon present it to who?
ever hos charge of tho natural curiosities
of tho South Carolina University, to be
stuffed, reconstructed nud set by the side
of the white owl. If this cannot be
done, make it u present to the proprietor
of tho Exchange House. Yours Sec.,

A correspondent of ibo Charleston
News, writing from Florence, S. C.,
Last week tho giu-hou.se of Mr. Petor
Coggeshaii, near here, was totally de?
stroyed, with its contents of cotton, cot?
ton seed, tte. On Saturday morning,
before day, tho store of Messrs. Wine
burg ?Sr Strauss was fired, and the pro?
prietor? and clerks came near being suffo?
cated in tho burning building. The
work-shops of Mr. John H. Husbands,
adjoiniug, caught, nud were utterly de?
molished. All those fires were tho work
of incendiaries, nnd except that Messrs.
Wineburg Sa Strauss, who were partially
insured, the losses have to bo boruo solely
by the unfortunate owners.
I see a pnragraph in yonr issue of the
25th, that Mr. E. M. Davis had mttr
dered n negro. This is nu error. Tho
circumstances were that Mr. Davis got
into a difficulty with a merchaut here, in
which harsh language was used. The
merchaut drew a aword and Mr. D.ivis a
knife. Arthur, Mr. Davis'body servant,
got between the belligerents to protect
his former master and to stop bloodshed.
lu doiug this, he caught a blow, not
aimed nt him, which entered the main
artery of tho leg, and Arthur died the
next day from loss of blood. Up to the
hour of his death ho expressed hisstroug
attachment to bis old master, and said
he did not wish him arrested, for he
never iutended to barm him. This at?
tachment was reciprocal, and none re?
grets Arthur's loss moro than Mr. Davis.
Mr. Davis is one of our most respectable
and esteemed citizens, and has tho sym?
pathy of the wholo community, white
and colored, in tliis unfortunate accident,
which ho regrots.
How SOME OF THE SENATORS LOOK.
WO copy as follows from the Washington
correspondence of the New York Tri
Parson Brownlow, the Richelieu ol
Tennessee, still sits tho murk of curious,
wondering eyes, with tho look of a dying
man, but with his old obstinate spirit ol
vitality aud fight strong iu him yet-out?
wardly, all n tremble with disease; in?
wardly, all will aud fixed rosolve-an
aspen with the heart of an oak. Simon
Cameron seems still vigorous, and boars
in his high-bred fnco the shrewd, saga?
cious look of a man who sees deep und
far-in his cool, cautious way, a political
prophet. Senator Nye looks what bo is
a man of "infinite jest" and bonhomie.
Carl Schurz sterns to the manner sena
torial born-has tho air of an elegant
scholar, and happily retains but few mark:
of tho soldier.
Tho two blondes of the Senato-Conk

result of Eastern civilization, tho other i
representative Western man of the beal
typo. Both are men of admirable ability,
but one knows it and tho other doesn't
or ono is alert, and tho other is a little
luzy. Mr. Carpenter, of Wisconsin,
of whose oloquenco we havo heard sud
great things, looks, on tho whole, up tc
his reputation. Ho is dark and power
fully made. Peoplo say he is like Web
