Friday Morning April 8,1870.
What Reconstruction Means.
DOD Piatt, the Republican correspond?
ent of the radical Cincinnati Commercial,
The Senatorial confusers of useful
knowledge are pounding away at Geor
Sia. Senator Bevels ia to deliver, to
av, Governor Bullock's speech, and the
old routine of talk will go on over and
over to a dreary length of apoplectic
stupidity. Troops are needed in North
Carolina. Troops are called for in Ten?
nessee, and there seems to be no end of
tinkering, patching and threatening on
the part of the majority in Congress.
And wlien we sift iiMown to a real defini?
tion, reconstruction jneans voting Ihe lie
We have given io tba negro tbe ballot.
We have expended vast sums on his
education and for his support, and yet
the legislation in bis behalf has no limit.
It is the hopeless legislation of ven?
geance. Some fellow writes Senator
Sumner a letter full of lamentations and
direful forebodings and Massachusetts'
elongated agony-the animated personal
pronoun "I"-rises in his place, has tho
letter read, and then moves an enact?
ment looking to the annihilation of the
disloyal element of the South. Well,
gentlemen, it can't be annihilated in that
way. This disloyal party, as you call it,
ia the growing element in the South and
cannot be suppressed, unless we are
willing to give up our theory of govern?
ment and wipe out the State lines, aud
substitute military dependencies in their
stead. Let us seo where we are.
After passing the most stringent enact?
ments, after driving the disloyal element
from all political power, we rind tbat it
yet exists. It makes up the majority in
numbers, and tbe vast preponderance of
brain. It controls the press, makes pub?
lic sentiment and bolds the property. It
is more dangerous to our Government
out of office than in. Oppressed, in?
sulted aud abused, it grows in deadly
Antagonism to our best interest, aud
sooner or later will come up and take
control to our injury.
I know of nothing more childish or
puerile than to hear Charles Sumner or
Puritan Drake reading anonymous let?
ters, and shaking their Senatorial dogers
at a power that bas to-day more brain,
more pluck, and far more statesmanship
than these our impotent law-makers.
I have no question but that Sumner,
Drake & Co.,fare honest in this. But
one tu saying so is forced to complimeut
their morals at the expense of their in?
tellect. But back of these, and urging
them on, are certain other law-makers
not so honest. As the matter stands,
neither the brain nor the material inte?
rests of the South are represented in
Congress. New England and Pennsyl?
vania both represent that region. The
scalawag or carpet-bagger sits like a
monkey on a hand-organ, watching with
keenest eye3 the whip of his master.
Tho immense moneyed interests, tho
accumulated and accumulating capital of
tbe few, own and possess and occupy the
South. Hence it is well never to be done
reconstructing. We have toled the South
aloug ns a farmer does a stupid ox, with
nubbins of corn, until the poor beast
finds that it was the yoke and not tho
feed that he was to get.
QnowiiEU.-There is a class of men in
every community who go about with
vinegar faces, growliug because they aro
not appreciated as they think they should
be, and who constantly quarrel with their
destiny. These uieu usually have made
a great mistake iii_.their estimate of their
abilities, or ure unmitigated donkeys.
In either case they are unfortunate. If
people despise you, do uot tell it all over
town. If you aro capable, show it. If
you are a right down clever fellow, wash
the worm-wood off your face, and sh >w
your good-will by deeds. Then, if tho
people feel above you, go right off and
feel above them. If they swell when
they pass you in the street, swell your?
self, and if this does not "fetch them,"
conclude very good naturedly that they
are unworthy of your acquaintance, and
pity them for missing such a capital
chance of getting into good company.
PnoartESS.-The Washington corres?
pondents of New York papers inform us
that Senator Revels, John M. Langdon,
Frederick Douglass and other prominent
"uegro" orators, aro making arrange?
ments, in view of the ratification of tho
fifteenth amendment, to stump tho
Northern States next fall in the interests
of the Republican party. In order that
the latter party may get thu full benefit
of tho negro vote in tho Northern States,
it is understood that tho Union League
of America will soon set about establish?
ing secret leagues among tho negroes of
that section, so as to prepare them to
vote at the autumn elections. With thc
aid of the negro, the Republicans expect
to carry all the Northern States by largo
majorities, and to reclaim States like De?
laware, Maryland and New Jersey.
FOTIGIDE.-Dr. Hopkins, of Utica, N.
Y., has collected with great caro and
published, statistics concerning tho
growth and prevuleuco of tho crimo of
foeticide, which aro of a most startliug
character. Taking New York city as nu
index, the Doctor sh owa that tho in?
crease of procured abortions has been
alarmingly rapid. In 1805 the ratio to
population was 1 to 1,633; in 1819, 1 to
340; in 1850, 1 to 10; in 1869, 1 to 4.
Theso figures represent a stato of morals
which challenges tho grave consideration
of legislators and teachers of religion.
MB. EDITOB: In noticing the public
exhibitions of the press on the present
situation of governmental affairs, it will
appear that an effort is making to bring
tbe popular mind to the essential princi?
ples of a common platform, upon which
to stand in the coming canvass for the
election of a now Legislature. Various
are the suggestions as to the best mode
of proceeding-of preparing the voting
citizens for the ballot-box. I desire to
tako a part in making suggestions, and
propose the following for consideration.
But, first, what are the evils of which wo
complain and for which we desire a re?
medy? One of the greatest is, the bnr
thouBome taxation to which we aro sub?
jected, and the uncertainty and confusion
into which our laws and code of rule?
of proceedure in our Courts are thrown
by extravagant legislation; entailing loss
of time and heavy expenses in conduct?
ing the litigation of the country. In
view of this condition of our situation,
the great desideratum with us, is, how
cnn we put in motion a remedy? I say
put in motion, because it cannot all be
doue at once. Something can be done,
in tho right direction, if the voting citi?
zens will unite and heartily endeavor to
elect a Legislature capable of realizing
our weighty burthens, and filled with the
spirit of true reform and industry, to do
the most useful work in tho shortest pos?
sible timo. Suoh a selection of meu can
and will effect wonders for tho general
welfare of our oppressed people; but,
not so much for the millionaire specula?
tors. Now, can such election bo made?
Not with ease and apathy; but, if the
people would unite aud go to work pro?
perly, I think very much could be doue.
I will 8tatemy plan. Let each County
view its own separate voting condition
of fixed facts-of living issues. For
example, a County having a preponder?
ance of white voters and sending three
members to the House of Representa?
tives, nominate a ticket of two white and
ono colored candidat?, and upou condi?
tion, that they openly and publicly
pledge themselves to work for the reform
desired by tbe nativo and adopted citi?
zens of our State; then give them a
united support at the ballot-box. If a
County have a preponderance, either
way, and be entitled to four mombers,
let the citizens nominate a ticket of two
whites and two colored, and upon the
conditions already stated; then rully for
their sucoess at the ballot-box. And sn,
let each County act for itself.
And further, if there should be a Coun?
ty entitled to four or moro members and
ouly two suitable men can be found to
take open ground for tho needed reform,
nominate but these two, ono white and
one colored, and then, upon tho same
condition, all, who are for reform, sup?
port these and no other. I write to be
understood, use no metaphors, or hidden
lauguoge, indicating policies for the fu?
ture, but speak straight out. In select?
ing colored nominees, I hesitate not to
advocate' tho appointment of those, main?
ly, who have been owned among tis as
slaves formerly, aud of those, too, who
aro of tho funning class. They feel more
sharply the burthens of which we all
complaiu. Much eau be said in fuvor of
this course of procedure, but I withhold
exteuded argument. The reasons aro
very apparent. In this way, they will
seo that we aro in earnest in recognizing
their legal rights; that we desire to take
them along with us, in leaving the busi?
ness of law-making, and in the execution
of law. It will remove from their miuds
tho bug-bears of being remanded to
slavery again, and guard them against
hnmbuggcry for the future. Thus, they
will more readily learn, that they have
been gulled with shadows, whilst their
pretended frieuds ran away with the
substance. We must get tho workings of
tho Stute Government in fair order, and
let national politics nod alliances bo for
tho proper timo. We are not bencfitted,
just now, I apprehend, by keeping up
party struggles for party success and
ellice emoluments. Fellow-citizens, we
have much at stake, and let ns think
twice before we speak, aud look with both
eyes before we leap. Send out your ora?
tors and logical sharp-shooters to en?
lighten tho popular mind. Tho press
eau do much, but good slumping eau do
moro iu this matter. SPES.
There was an attempted test of tho
civil rights bill iu Chester, a few days
ago. Several colored men entered the
barber-shop of a worthy freedman, and
desired him to shave them, which he
declined; they immediately hurried to a
colored magistrate and obtained the
arrest of the unwilling barber; but upou
inquiry from tho Internal Revenue Col?
lector, it was fouud that the barber was
not licensed; he was, thereupon, re
leasod, much to the chagrin of tho in?
INCENDIARISM.-Wu learn that tho
barn of Mr. William Keels, near Lynch?

THE SHIPMENT OP FERTILIZERS.-Dur?
ing tho mouth of March there were ship?
ped from Charleston, by tho South
Cuiolina Railroad, 18,200,590 pounds of
fertilizers. This is equal to about 9,130
tons, or 1,141 car loads. At SSO per ton,
this amount of fertilizers cost about
8730,000. This is doing pretty woll for
ouo mouth.-Charleston News.
GEORGETOWN AND CHARLOTTE RAIL?
ROAD.-The estimated cost of tho grud
ing and building, trestling and cross
ties of this read, 155 miles in extent, is
$700,000, or about 84,500 per milo. Tho
iron and rolling stock is estimated to
cost $1,300,000. lu nil, $2,000,000.
LONG COURTSHIPS.- "A Bufferer*' send a
us the following from that spioy writer,
"Mary Myrtle," with a request that it
be published for the edification of bash
ful swains who dilly-dally about their
sweethearts and take up an amount of
time in dawdling and dangling quite
sufficient to exasp?rate the most patient
of the gentler sex: "If there ia anything
moro disheartening to a woman than a
long courtship, I have yet to disoover it.
From tho woman who marries for a
home-nnd there aro far too many who
do that-to tho fair creature who marries
for love, thero aro thousands who aro
kept in suspenso for years, not knowing
whether tho mau whom they expect to
marry is really going to propose or not.
It is very certain that long courtships
seldom result in matrimony. It gene?
rally happens that the faults of both
parties aro mado evident, nnd tho desire
for separation is mutual. But no young
(or old) man has any right to monopolize
the attentions of a lady for years nud
then coldly dismiss ber. By so doing
he possibly prevents her from marrying
some one who would bo glad to have her.
and acts a part which no gentleman will.
So, gentlemen, wheo you have decided
that the lady is worthy of your choice,
(and don't be long about it,) 'pop the
question' and 6ct her heart at rest." The
advice of tho piquant "Mary Myrtle" is
to tho poiut. In other words, in the
words of "John Unit," "business is
business;" nnd tbeso iutolerubly long
and extremely exhaustive courtships
dog the buBiuess of society and end iu
much heart-burning and disappointment.
It is, no doubt, a lino thing, an agreea?
ble reoreation, to monopolize the thoughts
or tho preference of n charming woman,
but there is such n thing ns hanging on
too long and making a protracted meet?
ing out of tho halcyon days of life.
A case was decided by tho United
States Supremo Court some days ugo,
which will, no doubt, create n sensation
iimoug holders of confiscated property
in the South, many of whom mude their
purchases without fully understanding
the law on the subject. Tho case is that
of Bigelow vs. DeForrest, in which cer?
tain real estate in Virgiuia was seized,
under the confiscation Taws, and sold, its
owner being adjudged guilty of treason.
That person having since died, his heirs
brought snit iu ejectment to recover the
property. Tho claim wa? resisted on the
ground that the title of the originnl
owner was forfeited by his treason, and
his rights in thc property thoroughly
divested. But the Uuited States Su?
premo Court decide that it was only his
estate during his lifo which was divested,
and since his death his heirs may re?
cover the property. Tho decision is in
accordance with clause two, section
three, article three of tho Constitution
of the Uuited States, which says: "Con?
gress shall bnvo power to deoluro the
punishment of treason, but no attainder
of treason shall work corruption of
blood or forfeiture, except during tho
life of tho person attainted."

ORNAMENTAL IKON AND BRONZE WORKS.-Aa
successful workers in iron, for practical and
useful purposes, aa well aa Ornamental com?
bined, tho firm of Bobert Wood A Co., of
Philadelphia, are tho first upon tho American
Continent, and their work compare? favorably
with tho finest skill of tho old world, 'ihoy
employ 150 of the most skilled workmen in this
country, two-thirds of whom have served their
appreiiticetliip under Robert Wood, tho aenior
partner, who, for tho past twenty iivo years,
has given his special attention to tho produc?
tion of his goods, and who, by an honorable
course of dealing, lias built up a business
having no rival in this country, and but few in
Europe. They cast an almost unlimited va?
riety of designs, including lions, dogn, and a
variety of other animals, most beautiful
fountains adorned with statues of water
nymphs, fawns, Ac, beside statues of dis?
tinguished persons, life-size, heroic and co?
lossal. The colossal statue of Henry Clay,
cast by this Company and erected at Potts?
ville, Pa., has n ceived tho highest encomiums
of English travelers visiting this country, be?
sides attracting much attention from tho
lovers of this art in our own country. The
casting of statuary in bronze has been insti?
tuted only about five years, hut within this
short period of time has attained such a high
degree of excellence and superiority na to
bring this establishment in successful compe?
tition with tho most noted ami oldest bronze
works of Europe. Tho colossal atatuo of
Lincoln, cast by Messrs. Woori A Co. lately, to
bo placed in Union Park, New York, was cast
in six pieces, and the whole work of casting
and linisliing rc quired three months. It is
eleven feet high, and tho likeness ia true and
faithfully represented, being tho finest bronze
casting in tho United States. Tho elegant set
nf iron stair-cases for tho Court House in
Carlinvillo, III., at a cost of $10,000, is tho
most superior casting oi this kind, probably,
in tho world. While Messrs. Wood A Co. have
tho largest assortment of all kinda of orna?
mental iron gooda in tho United States, which
aro executed with tho express view of pleasing
tho taste, they combino all the requisites of
beauty aud substantial construction. Their
garden and cemetery adornments, cast,
wrought iron and wire railings, fountains,
vasos, verandas, settees, arbors, chairs and
atore fronts, door and window guards, farm
touring, Ac, are all manufactured from tho
heat material and ottered to tho trrde upon
the most liberal terms.
They also manufacture new and improved
Bi} lea of hay racks, mangers, Stable fixtures,
stall divisions, Ac, which are Very beautiful,
and are being rapidly introduced all over tho
country. Ap 8 I
