fifty-ninth year at the time of his
decease. In early life, he became
involved in. a, bitter controversy
with the Rev. W. G. Brownlow,
which attracted a' great ' deal of
attention at the time. In 1840,
and for several years afterward,
he edited the Jonesloro Sentinel.
Reserved in the General Assem

sessions of 1845 6 and 1849-50,
and was a Senator in- 1847-8.,
Three years later he opposed An

was defeated. In I860, he was a
Democratic elector for tLe State
at large. .. When the . war broke
out, he went South and was elect

The South as It Is. rr;i
That the x war did - gravely
change the aspect of affairs in
Lincoln county, we . have all
experienced, but' how far ' and
iri- what special respect it has
altered social, usages "away
down South," none can well and
fairly understand." except those
whose personal experience aids
their judgment in tho premises. :
In order to enlighten such of
our readers as may -be unprej-j
udiced enough to desire to look
facts calmly in the face, and ar
rive at , the conclusions based
on such an observation, we ex
tract the following passage from
a private letter penned by a gen
tieman residing in Columbus,
Ga. 'As- he could have no idea
that any portion of his epistle,
written in any easy frankness
''" ' ' r
of friendship, would ever meet
the public ' eye. his picture of.
domestic life in the far South
may be considered an accurate
one , und . deserving . : of confi
dence. He writes:
"During confederate times
my household servants were
seven viz : . one washer and
ironerj-5 one cook; one house
servant; one to milk and assist
in washingj-and one to attend
to children (these were women)
one man to cut wood, drive car
riage, &c.; one boy to run er
rands, &c. :' My family consists
of myself, -.wife, and five .chil
dren the oldest eleven years
of age. My servants got'free
nigger on the brain so badly
that I could not manage them;
so I discharged the whole posse.
The only difficulty is that a
negro : now thinks he must not
work, and,if tell one .that,
hte- has fai led; in ." hi$ duty or.
neglected to do something,
he gets angry and quits. In a
few days you will discover that
some spoons, knives, or articles
of wearing apparel are missing.
This is, of course, expensive
living, besides keeping one al- j
way 8 in a provoking hunt for
servants. . -White servants are
not to bo had here, and there
fore I wonder if I could obtain,
and at what cost, two reliable
women to do my housework,
were I to pay their expenses to
this place?" w ; . '; !
We may discover from . this
undisguised . revelation of the
South as it is as far as domes
tic life is concerned; and al
though wc suspect that our cor
respondent is no worse off, in
the matter of "help," than many
families here, his picture of his
home illustrates, better than all 'j
the official reports in the world'
could, the position and condi
tion of the emancipated slaves.
The misguided zeal of northern
radicalism has, unfortunately,
operated upon - the ignorant
minds of the "freedmen" after
a fashion that.has unfitted them
to appreciate in a rational man
nertheir liberty itself. Free
dom, to their benighted percep
tion, means freedom from' toil,
and . liberty a license to live in
idleness at the public expense.
The freedmen will never care to
earn their bread as long as they
are taught to believe that it will
drop into their mouths if they
cast a Radical ballot. They
will never work for a subsistence
at the hands of white men as.long
as they are so sedulously impress
ed .with' the . conviction . that
northern white men, having de
prived them of a protector and
almoner at home,' are righteous
ly bound to become. a substitute,;
and carry but practically the
wliolcsale . philanthropy they,
have so long precepted. '
tJ The temperance ques-,
tion as heretofore carried into
legislation has proved a misera
ble failure. 'Between absolute
prohibition and . absolute - free
dom we' have had many plans,
but they haver all proven . final
failures. .. The Michigan Legis
lature proposes to enact a law
regulating the ;sale of liquor,
and proposes to pass a license
law whicn will favor dealers in
malt liquors, and thus discour
age the sale, of ardent spirits.
Such a law is far more likely to
produce permanent -good than
three-fourths qf those which
we hear talked of every day.

TheJRomanizatton of the
Church of England.
It is believed by many that
the"Chui ch of England" is grav
itating toward Romanism, and
the day is not distant when a
largo portion of - its clergy will
formally, seek reconciliation
with the Church of Rome. .' The
advances to such, a result have
so far been entirely on the Pro-
testanT'Vide. Rome has made
no concessions proposed no
compromise. 'She is willing to
receive the "heretics," if they
come to her repentant of their
heresv. but she "waives no doc-:
trine of ceremonial that formed
a part of her creed and ritual in
the days of Martin Luthen -'
The "High Church" party in
the .Church of England are
making ' feu&h extraordina 1 y
changes in the established rit
ual, that the "low churchmen,"
as they are called, have be
come seriously alarmed, and are
formally protesting , against
what they deem the innovations
of the Tractarians: These in
novations certainly justify the
charge that the clergy who en
dorse them arc essentially Ro
man .Catholics.' For example:
processions, .with banners and
crosses, and . the burning of in
cense, have been introduced into
the morning and evening servi
ces at the Tractarian churches.
Candles are burned on the al
tars; the celebrant priests wear
vestments similar to those worn
by the Roman Catholic clergy;
religions orders, of d monkish
character, liave been instituted,,
one of which is known is the
Bendictines, and the communion
ceremonial is stated to be tanta
mount to the adoration of the
Host. ' In fact, it is very clear
from the accounts given by the
Reformed Episcopalians of the
formalities observed by the
"Hish Church7.7 clergy, that tney
are in 'every thing,' except the
name, .Romah Catholic priests.
When doctors of Divinity disa
gree it would be presumptuous
in the unlearned laity to decide
between them; but all candid
men must admit that clergy

selves with the hierarchy ot
Rome should not call themselves

. Mr. Editor Plato defines a
man to be a "two-legged ani
mal without feathers,", and, as
the Radicals, of Tennessee bear
a faint resemblance to' the genus
homo, it follows that the afore
said animals, the Radicals, are
without "feathers," but it seems
that they know how to feather
thetr.nest by stealing the peo
