and under the stimulus of this prosperity, bis

provident aud piin's taking to sn extraordinary
degree. Somaikedwas tbisoareluliitss of pre

womb Of time God knows, we do not. It la
left to us to do our duty, and trust In Him. If
left to ourselves well nvgh'. we be dependent.
But bow often have we seen it to to be tbe cue
la this world's history, whincjnfus on has re gn
ed, when society baa been broken up Iron its
deep foundations, when tbe wild and bad pas
slous of men were let loose without restraint,
that an uneruDS band, clearly vissible la Ita re

disorder to jieia to order, gicuiciiog elements

But we bare been tnviaea maiy oiviaea. it
was. a political insanity. History aulirds no
parallel toIt, unless it be tbe oooduct ol
the Jews, who destroyed each other in intes
tine cobfliots, while famlhe aud pesti
lence stalked through tbe streets, and
Titus, with bii legiuna, was battering down
tbe walls ot Jerusalem. Let us suae these in
testine dirieious. Our peril is great from with
out and within. If we have erred in this In
stance, let us oo longer. Let tbe whole South
move together in aolid column. Tbe Interests
at basud are tbe interests bl no one State
aloie, but of all the Southern States. It is a
limited and unstateemaultke view ol lb iWvtrj
question, wbicb onsiders it in its relation to any
cue common weaitn. otatejines nave nine to
do with it. It is a question of races, not States.
Not one step should be taken which does sot
cover its eutire relations, f.om Virginia to
Texas, It oat not be disguised that tbe sen
timent of tbe whole Cbtiauun world is against
us on tbiasubjeat- Any guerilla warfare ugaLst
this sentimeot will be throwing straws against
the wind. United we are stroug enough to re
sist it divided we shall fall beiore it. To Ml
in suoh a contest ia to be ground to powder. If
tbe voice of this Journal baa any weight, let it
ha beard by its reader, iOattered thro' every
Southern Btate, imploring, tbe people of the
South, as tbey value their fiieldes, as they
love their wives and children, as ihy would
save the inferior race whom tbey are bound to
protect, to confer wit'neaob other, to mingle
counsel, and to unite upon some plan of aotiun
whiou shall euaoie mem to present a front so
united and oompact that every weapon cast
against them tb.ll harmlessly rebound.
I bere IS anomer leaauu ugovu oj mat

with the orevtoua teaobmea of ibis Journal.
We have been suddenly brought into a position
wbicb luggets crave probabilities of war. We
are tberelore arming. Hut we labor under a
greater deficiency tban the want ot arms, (
t laeteani 0 ureas, me owe oi weorgta
has not now grain enough within ber limits to
feel ber population and oumeatio animals until
the gatbenog ot tbe ntx' crop. It is presum
ed that tbe rent of the Cotiou States are In a
similar condttioa. ' List year we obtained our
tmpplies horn tbe Northwest. It may be that
onr currency will be In a condition to prevent
th a suddIv. exoept at ruinous eacnatei. it
may bo that we snail be cut off iron it alto
gether. Tbts is probable, unless tbe supplies
are immediately procured. Tbe, subjiot Is
worthy of the immediate attenuon ot tbe au
thorities oi tbe different plantation States.
A part of this defloioocy in breads.uffi is ac
cidental, erisipg from tbe drouth -of ihepatt
summer. . But is muoh more owing to our de
fective system of Agrioulture. Aj an illustra
tion, in 1859, upwards ol five millions of dollars
worth of provisions ot western growtn, were
brought over tbe Westtro & Ailantio Railroad,
front Chattanooga to Atlauta, This sum did
not include burses and mules. It did not In
clude tbe bogs, sheep and beef cattle, driven
Into the State, nor provuions lanuea av .Sivau
nab, from tbe Nortb. . -,
Tbe de&oleney U then, a natural result of oar
system ot Agriculture. We are presenting, in
Georgia, alibis moment, toe anomalous spec

millions ol dollars worth of tbe earth's product

Liabilities of Postmasters.
[From Holbrook's United States Mail.]
It is a very serious question how for a poatr
master Is to be held responsible, in csbcs of pe
cuniary loia, resulting Irons a failure to do his
wnoie duty in respect to tbe custody or letters
passing through bis bands. When it is clear
ly shown that such losa bai been the result of
bis own cross carelessness, or that of bis sub
ordinates, or tbe general bad management ol
nis OHIO, it would seem no more tban lust that
such lability should follow.
At least, such has been the opinions cf courts
and Juries In some oases where this question ol
responsibility bas been brought before them.
The ease of Christy vs. 8ml tb, Postmaster at
Waterburv. Vermont, whioh mav be found In
"Vermont Reports," volume 8. page 663, should
serve aa a warning to postmaster eho are prone
to loifflolenoy and loose management in tbe
discharge of their duties.
A letter oiniainlog a considerable amdunt of
money was mailed at Salisbury, Vt., to a party
In Waterbury lo tbe same State It was lost
Suit was brought against tbe postmaster for the
reoovery ,of tbe amount, with cost. It waa
satisfactorily shown that the letter rescbed the
Waterbury ofBoe, buvwas not delivered. It was
further proved that the office wis badly man
aged; that letter! could be easily abstracted
from tbe boxes by reaching through tbe delivery
window, and that persons ia no way connected
with the office were allowed free access, at all
times, behind the boxes, and bis assistants ad
mitted that ibey bad never taken tbe required
oath of offloe.
This case resulted In a verdict for the plain-
iiu, tnougn no on attrioutea to lh defendant
any greater dellnqueucy or dishonesty tban a
neglect of that degree of watchfulness and
care Implied by the acceptance of his important
Honesty in tbe discharge of official duty li not
confined lo abstaining from, or depredating upon
tho mails,, or otherwise Violating tbe laootlty
of letter seala for purposes of mere curiosity.
It ia not honest to allow others not connected
with a poit office an opportunity to be dishonest)
by falling to provide all possible checks and pre
cautions ajzalust such oootioarencies.
It is not honest to employ in such responsible
position persons who, through Ignorance, bad
habits, stupidity, or indifference, are aa likely
.uguweuugns iigoiia transacting post omce
It is not honest to accept a high trust from the
uovernmeni. ana yet oooataer and treat tbe po
sition in the lisht of a sinecure, vlaitina the of.
floe often enough, perhaps, to sign tbe quarterly
niwiuii, auu poosei toe large or amau commis

- It is not honest to make the post office a po
lititlcal .eanoua-room. where tobacao amoks.
lond talking, and dlsordor, usurp tbe place of
neatness ana gooa oraer, ana where the timid
applicant for letter are toraed off with a neg
ative growl from tbe lagy official in the dim dis
tance, who finds it easier, to pronounoe tbe
hackneyed word "nothing," than to take down
bis extensive legs from ibeir elevated position,
and make a faithful seaich for tb letter.
it is far from honest to allow curious and
prying persona to inrpeot the letters of otbera
torany purpose or under any pretext, or to af
ford any information whatever coooernlPK soch
correspondence. In short, tbe publio have a
light to expeot and to demand tbe utmost care,
