A correspondent of the New York 2Yw,
writing from the South to that journal,
draws tho following picture of the position
in which the war left tho Southern people
and f tho temper in which they have ac
cepted its results :
Tho men of thn North and of the South were
Americans, and Uioy wore hound to tight 11 out.
Tho North, with its mountains of resources nnd
its nvalnncho of men. wns determined to cam
tho strugglo on to n successlul termination, nnd
th" South was rrssouod to do or die.
Hnw fared tho South in this rtniEclc? In Addi
tion 1,1 their loss of men and troo'uro which wo
nl'iuo feel they find themselves upon the verge of
rutu, in tho Aorth, witu 1110 exception 01 be
reaved widows nnd mother. Ae powco dawnel
nn.-n h bnimv land. Not so with the South. Tn-
kinc into eomiidcrHtimi tho population of tho re
spective motions, they lose nearly ten men to our
one. In tho destruction of the institution of sla
Tcry they lose ono-half of their property, or more
than enough money to pay tho expenses of tho
war im-urrcd upon both sidm. Their cities and
towns, from tho Atlantic to tlio Mississippi, have
been wholly or partially destroyed, and the whole
country penniiess. And jet thoy accept ho
situation "t things without union murmuring,
and nro actually trying to enjoy themselves.
Such is the information which the Time
tins from tho South. The Tribune copies
itcs information for its readers; nnd yet
lKth of those influential journals are not
patisfied with tho injuries inflicted upon our
paoplc, but aro seeking to hold them as a
subjugated people without rights unless they
will conform their domestic relations in

lnt any constitutional, legal, or other right and
pririlcgo by tlio operation of said act, shall be,
and nro hereby restored to the full and free uso
and enjoyment of tlio same as completely as if
sunt art had never been passed.
Section This net shall bu in forco from its
passage, nnd may bo plead in bar to any prosecu
tion or further proecution, of any indictment, or
other penal proceeding, growing out of said act,
.Mr. Hell offered the following amendment to
the sulistitute, viz:

The prompt action of Kentucky in thus
removing the civil and political disabilities,
which it was deemed necessary to impose on
certain of her people during tho rebellion,
and by a vote so nearly unanimous,
evinces a Hpirit nf tiiaonaniniity ami jtw
ticc in the highest degreo creditable. It
will go farther towards restoring unity and
harmony to her people, and healing the as
perities of feeling which naturally grew out
of the war, than any other act that could
possibly have been done. It is now certain
that the Legislature will deal in a eorres
Kiulingspiiit with the subject of State pros
ecution for treason, to which Gov. llramlcttc
called their attention in" a special message,
which we published y.ostorday. This is the
true way to restore peace. The Governor,
and Representatives and people of Kcntuck
are satisfied that the war lasted long enough
nnd, so far as their own State is concerned
tkoy aro determined to have peace, and to
resume at once the old order of things.
In every State, any considerable portion
of whose people participated in tho rebellion
with one t-olitary exception, the political
rights and privileges arc the Fame as before
the war. Our own Stato of Tennessee is
that exception. It may be possible that
there is wisdom in the policy which induced
the Legislature to disfranchio fo large a
portion of the people of Tennessee, and now
inducoii them to adhere to it; but we arc sure
nine-tents of our population regard it differ
ently. What public good is to be accom
plished by it, what substantial lienofit to
accrue from it aro invisible to the general
understanding. W'c tmt that the llcpros-
entatives of our Stato will think better o
the matter licforo their final adjournment,
and fall gracefully into the "line of safe
precedents," h wisely and happily pursued

The Itadicals arc exceedingly anxious to
keep in good accord with the President.
Patronage is power, and tho President has
the patronage. Hut for this fact, ourjudgd

really think and feel than any of the oracles
of that jwrty. The following jviragraph from
their 'Washington correspondent indicates
more clearly the relations ltctween the Pre
sident and the Ivadtcals than anything wc
have seen. Speaking of the Stevens resolu
tion, tho writer says :
The resolution involves neither a direetannroral
nor a direct cenuro of the policy followed by tho
President; but it docs indeed imlwale that the re
sults of that policy will not be accepted without
having first been elosoly scrutinised, and that tho
.Nntmnul autlionty will not relax its hold upon
tho lato Rebel State, until the guaranties given
for future good behavior arc clearly undeYtood to
be satifctory. It is rumored here that the n-

little favor in Administratin rirel-, but. in fact.

confided to the discretion of ono men, could not

Democratic tlovcrnment ha become a fixed habit
with the people. The l'reidsnt has assumed re

We had the pleasure of publishing a few
days since a very interesting letter from Ex
Gov. Isiiam G. ILvimis to a friend in Geor
gia. The letter was entirely free from pol
itics, and in excellent taste. Wc accom
panied it with some remarks complimentary
to tho elevated tone and character of the
man, than whom no one -is better known to
the people of Tennessee.
A city contemporary, who made his ad
vent into our State during the progress of
the war, and who is, therefore, less familiar
with the leading men and politics of Ten
ncssee. brings in contrast with our favorable
opinion of the character of Gov. Harris,
certain remarks attributed to President
Johnson, in a speech delivered by him at
Cincinnati, when, as stated by this contem
porary, he was " flying from the myrmidons
of Harris," (an expression that, in our judg
ment, is not very accurate in its description.)
Hut, without sloping to question the taslc
of our contemporary in the language employ
ed towards a distinguished public man, wiio
stands high in the confidence and esteem of
tho people of Tennessee, but who is no
longer a part and parcel of our feuds, and
whose only oflencc has been that so common
to tho people of the South ; and without
taking the trouble to emfuire particularly
into the precise accuracy oi the language at
tributed to Andrew Johnson, wo have this
to say : we have long known both men in
their intimate personal relations, and wc
know that thoic relations were of a most
cordial character through'a career of many
years, and that during that time this cor
dial intercourse was never marred until the
inception of the 'unfortunate civil war in
which the country has been involved. Du
ring this latter period section has been array
ed against section, State against State, friend
against friend, brother against brother, fhtli
cr against son. lilood has flown, homes have
been made dosolate, the devil has been let
loose, and all the evil passions of our nature
have been stircd to their very depths. At
such a time and under such circumstances,
it would have been passing strange if the
wisest and most considerate of our country
men on both sides of the strife had not said
and done many things that in cooler mo
ments they would not have said nor done,
and which mti't be the occasion of serious
regret in after life with all fair minded, just
and honorable people.
Neither Axumnv Johnson nor Isham G
IlAitnis arc free from the infirmities com
moil to other men. Wc have labored witl
them through the heat and dust of many
fierce political canvass, and we well know
that they wore both good at vituperation, and
that neither were very measured or critical
in their language of disapprobation when
parsing judgment upon the conduct of those
to whom they stood optiosed. The motives
of both have been assailed in turn in aspiri
of violence equally inconsiderate and unjust
No one can speak more feelingly upon this
subject than the editors of this journal. They
were m past times arrayed against cacl
other. The reflection only teaches us pa
tience and moderation, and the retrospect is
more painful than pleasant. If we were to
give credit'to all that every public man and
journalist in Tennessee has said against every
othir public man and journalist in the heat
of party strife, and under the cxc'.tcment of
the moment, wc should be forced to the con
chiMOii tliat patriotism was a myth and pub
ic virtue a mockery. 15ut"wc know better
than this. Weak as it is, human nature is
not without some good. Tho great majority
of mankind desire to do right even when
they do wrong. If we derive no other good
from the evils of the times through whicl
wc have passed, wc should at least draw
wisdom from experience, sec the folly of our
own madness, and profit by the sad results.
The intercstsof mankind are not as antag
onistic as supposed. c are creatures of
mutual dependence, and can he-it advance
our own rights by carefully respecting the
rights of others.
There was never a time when this
character of reflection was more appropo
than the present. Wc have all much to
forgive and much to forget. None are
Wo know Andrew Johnson and wc know
Isham G. Harris. We have reason to bc-
ievc that, with all our differences, wc have
never at any time forfeited the respect of
cither. And with our knowledge of the
men of their intelligence, their integrity,
their high courage and love of country,
wc will not suppose for a moment
that cither are capable of indulging, at this
time, feelings such as the unmeasured lan
guage of past party strife would indicate.
To think otherwise would be attributing to
them a narrowness of conception and a want
of magnanimity foreign to the high charac
ter to which both aspire, and which has been
so gcnerou.-ly awarded them by their coun
trymen. In the recent national conflict it
was their misfortune to difTer, and to difler
widely. In the final result, one has become
the President of the country; the other an
exile, seeking a new home in a strange land.
The one is not loss a hero in his exile than is
the other in his power. Pursuing hU honest
convictions of duty to the country, ho fol
lowed the cause of the proposed Southern
Confederacy with a frankness, a boldness, an
unselfishness and a dctcrmincdncss of pur
pose that only characterizes truly honct and
great men. He staked all, lost all, and
yields uncomplainingly to the result, and i.s
now seeking for himself and family the hos
pitality and protection of another govern
ment. Self depreciation is not the part of wis
dom. One half of tho American people
have not been warring ujkiii the other half
because they were coward or knaves ; but
as other nations have warred, on political
liflercnces. Thoso (inferences the arbitra.
incut of arms Jias settled. It has been de
termined that we intit live together as one
people, with mutual interest of prosperity
and honor. There is no just occasion for
farther strife. Tho President fools the im
portance and moral granduer of the position
to which Providence has assigned htm, and
is endeavoring to soften the asperities of the
times, to honl the wounds of his afllieted
country, and to so word the chapter in histo
ry which it is his destiny to fill, that coming
generations may call him good and great.
He stands to-day upon the stttntnit of true
tatesmanship. The little minds, that were
attracted by his jKiwcr when upon the low
grounds of passion and strife, have not been
able to follow him to that high oint of
moral granduer. In time, they will find
their level and sink back into that harm-
loss obscurity from which they sprang.

The following appeared in our telegraphic
columns yestevday, as a special from Wash
ington to the N. Y. Herald :
GcncraLGrant had nn interview with the Pres
ident yesterday, and communicated to him the
result of his observations during his recent trip
through Virginia, North Carolina, South Caro
lina and Georgia; ho was everywhere respectfully
received by all. Tho majority of tho negroes in
theso States aro in comparative idleness, nnd
nearly all rcfuso to renew their contracts until
after Christmas, believing that a general division
of property is to tako place at that time.
The Southern men of influence wore outspoken
in favor of complying with any demands tho
President might consider necessary for their re
storation. Gen. Grant believe? that tho people of
tho South almot unanimously, desiro rc-admis-sion
into tho Union, and that their professions of
futuro loyalty and good behavior arc honest and
Since the surrender of the Confederate ar-
mies the Press of the North have had their
hired men going all through the Southern
States, returning information from the late
seat of rebellion. Most of these hired men
were generally "picked up" and employed
for the reason that they could make a great
deal out of .1 very little, and furnish "news"
of their own manufacture when no other sort
could be obtained. To present something
that would suit their employers was their
first concern fo do it with as little trouble
to thcnisclve.9 as possible, was their next.
Wc have seen the result. It was to prejudice,
the whole public mind of the North ag.iinst
the South. "The South rebellious still"
"Outrages upon negroes" "Cruelties to the
oppressed race'' "Slavery not given up"
etc. etc.. constituted the flaming head
ings to "Letters from the South." The
effect is seen in Congress. The member
from them District, of, would take up
his paper at breakfast, and read first, the
" Latest news from the South." Horrors on
horrors accumulated from day to day ; and
when he went to Washington to take his
seat in Congress, he went with a budget of
bills and resolutions to correct everything
that he had read of, as being amiss. He ig
nored the statements of the Southern people
and their press. He could see 110 good ac
complished by the measures adopted by the
President to restore the Union, and bring
the erratic States back into thoir constitu
tional orbits. The calm and comprehensive
statements of the President in his message of
tho fruits of his reconstruction policy were
scarcely listened to ; and immediately upon
the organization, he risas to exclude South
ern llcprescntativcs ; to amend the consti
tution, so m to protect the negro, and op
press the white man ; and to keep the South
in a State of perpetual dependence and ser
vitude. Determined to have information and facts
from asourcc, which should be accepted and
relied upon by the whole country, the Pres
ident requested Gen. Grant to make a tour
of observation that would decido the mat
ter. Gen. Grant visited Virginia; North
and South Carolina and Georgia ; and upon
his return makes the report above given.
The facts, as he states them, correspond, in
spirit and substance, with what has been
stated on all occasions by the press and peo
ple of '.he South. He ;ays the negroes are
in comparative idleness, and nearly all re
fuse to renew their contracts for labor
for the next year, under the impression
that there is to L3 a general di ision of prop
erty at Christmas and that the desires of
the people are almost unanimous for restora
tion to the Union, and their professions of
future lovaltv and good behavior are hon-
t and sincere. This vindication of the in
tegrity and good faith of the Southern peo
ple will be as gratifying to them, as it will
be startling to their fanatical enemies.
The next question to arise is, whether Con
gress will take this disinterested testimony,
ind act upon it in the broad interests of
peace, or disregard it, and cling to the odds
and ends of misrepresentations so industri
ously accumulated by a factious press, and
so readily believed by the Northern people.
Iunu'rnmtion ofOnv. Orr.rarcwelI AI-
Ires of Cov. PerryGov. OrrN In-
On the 29th ult. Hon. James L. Orr 'was
inaugurated Governor of South Carolina
and as indicative of Southern sentiment and
thought at the present time, we give some
extracts from his speech, apd also from the
introductory and farewell speech of Provis
ional Governor B. F. Perry, who said :
Senators and Members of the limine nf Repre
I have come here to-day to bid you fare
well, as Provisional Governor of South Car
olina, and to congratulate yon on the restor
tion of the State, .once more; to self-government
and independence as a member of the
Federal Union. I am sure, gentlemen, that
I may say, with perfect propriety, as the re
presentative of the Federal Government in
fcoutli Carolina, that the State lias done
enough to entitle her to be received back as
a member of the Federal Union, with all
her constitutional rights fully restored. She
was foremost in assuming the post of danger
in the recent revolution, and in Iter appeal
to arms in defence of what she honestly be
lieved to be her reserved rights as a State.
Gallantly and nobly her sons fought
through the war, pouring out their
blood and sacrificing their lives on
almost every battle-field throughout the
Southern States. When conquered by over
whelming numbers, seeing their towns and
villages nothing but smouldering ruins, their
beloved State a wide-spread desolation, their
wives, and sisters, 'and little children, and
aged parents at the point of starvation, like
brave men they accept the deereo of God,
and submitted themselves to the dire for
tunes of war. Sad and silent, with manlv
fortitude and firmness, they awaited the
terms of the conqueror. When thasc terms
were made known, they were first, with a
generous pride and high chivalry, to assume
the humiliation which their State had been
foremost in bringing oh our common coun
try. Having done all this, yon and your
State have doiie your dutv, gracefully "and
faithfully, as becomes a gallant and generous
people, who aro never afraid to assume any
position where honor and patriotism prompt.
1 know the President desires to relieve you
of military rule, and sec your Kepresenta
tives once more seated in the councils of the
nation. I cannot believe that Congresss will
exclude them by a test oath,for it hasnopow
er to impose on its members any other oath
than that prescribed in the constitution. The
reason for the passage of this test oath has
passed away, and if not repealed no one in
South Carolina can fill a Federal office till a
new generation has sprung up, for all now
living men, women and children did, in
some way, countenance the war. It is
known to you, gentlemen, that I was
opposed to the secession of South Car
olina. No man in America regretted
more deeply than I did this fatal
movement, for 1 thought I foresaw all the
evil consequences which have resulted from
it. But, when the issue was made, my feel
ings in sympathy were all with my native
fetatc. And yet 1 conscientiously believed
that even the success of the Southern States
would be disastrous. The jealousies and
errors of the Grecian States were constantly
in my mind. DiMntogration once commenced
in a confederation of Republics, no one could
forsce where it would end, except in petty
tyrannies, or a consolidated military despot
ism. Henceforth, no one will repudiate the
farewell advice ofWashington, as to the
mijiortance and. perpetuity ot the rederal
Linon. We all speak the same language,
anil have the same common origin. Our
opinions and feelings in regard to the repub
lican principles of government arc identical
There is, too, a similarity in our pursuits
and hadits, manners, customs, and religion
and education. History teaches us that the
pr&sciit asperity of feeling, which may exist
in the breasts of many, in consequence of the
wrongs and injuries of the war, will soon
wear out. Brave and honorable men aro al-
wa-s read v and willing to become reconciled
History teaches us, too, that the ravages of
war are much more easily repaired than one
is apt to suppose. An industrious anil 'en
terprising people will soon restore a country
ucsolateu by war. fcuclt a people may soon
convert a wilderness into productive and
highly improved farms. No one need des
pair of the State. In a few years, with peace
and industry, everything will change and
wear a prosperous anil nappy aspect.
Governor Orr then spoke as follows :

The Senate Union Caucus met this morn
ing at 1 1 o'clock, according to the arrange
ment telegraphed lapt night, but failed to
agree upon any course with reference to the
House Kccoiistructioii Committee. Imme
diately after the adjournment of the Senate,
the Caucus met again, and after n session of
some hours, agreed to the resolution as the
House passed it, only changing the phrase
ology so as to make it a concurrent, instead
of a joint resolution, and leaving each House
uncommitted as to the qualification 01 its
own members. It is supposed that ih this
shape the Senate will be able to pass it, but
it can scarcely avoid debate. General har

Upon the Ftibjcct of the admission of the
Southern delegates, the Xational Intelligcneer
thinks it is plain that the time approaches
when President Johnson will be justified,
by his own view of the situation, in issuing
a proclamation declaring that the States
ately rebellious are entitled to representa
tion in Congress, and deems it not improba
ble that before the close of the coming ses
sion we shall witness a complete restoration
of the Union in all its politica 1 and finan
cial integrity and power.

The people of South Carolina seceded
lrom the reileral union under nn earnest
and honest conviction that thev had the
constitutional right so to do ; and they were
equally earnest and honest 111 the convic
tion that their interest and the security of a
very large property 111 slaves required tliem
to resort to this extreme measure. Other
States united with her to set up a new gov
ernment. The Executive, the Legislative,
and the Judicial Department of the United
States Government all denied the right
which wc had asserted, and war ensued.
The parties knew that slavery was the real
foundation of the collision between the sec
tions. The South engaged in it to preserve
and perpetuate it ; the North to destroy it.
Four years of bloody, desolating war was
spent in settling the issue, which had been
committed to the arbitrament of the sword,
and that High Tribunal from which there
i.s no earthly appeal decided the cause
against us. The war has decided, first :
That one or more of the States of the Fed
eral Union have not the right, at will, to
secede therefrom. The doctrine of seces
sion, which was held to be orthodox in the
State Bights school of politics, is now ex
ploded fur any practical purpose. The
theory of absoltitcsovcreignty of a State of the
Federal Union, (from whence was derived the
right to secede,) which was believed al
most universally to be a sound constitu
tional construction, must also be materially
modified to conform to this imposing decis
ion. Where the rights of a State are disre
garded, or unconstitutional acts done by any
department of the Federal Government,
redress em no longer be sought by interjio
sing the sovereignty of the State, cither for
nullification or secession ; but the remedy
is by petition or remonstrance ; by reason,
which, sooner or later, will overtake justice ;
by an appeal to the supreme judicial power
of the Union ; or by revolution, which, if
unsuccessful, is treason. I lie ilecission was
far more imposing and obligatory than if it
had been pronounced by the Supreme Court
of the United States. Had it been tried
there, an effort to reverse it might havo been
made, because its nicmliers and opinions
often change. But the God of battles has
pronounced an irreversible judgment, after
a long, deserate and sanguinary struggle,
and it would be neither politic or patriotic
ever again to invoke a new trial of the fear
ful issue President Johnson was well ac
quainted with the South, with her politics
and politicians, and knew, however erron
eous in his judgment mav have lieen their
political principles, that they honestly enter
tained the sentiments which they professed,,
and for which they periled their all ; and
after failing in their end, when they proposed
to return to their loyalty, that hr.manity and
policy dictated that they should not bo ,
hunted down for ignominious punishment. I
shall give his policy of reconstruction an
earnest and zealous support. The war de
cided, second : That slavery should lie to
tally and absolutely exterminated in all the
States of the Union. The Legislature has
followed up the action of the Convention, ,
by passing the Constitutional amendment
proposed by the Federal Congress prohibit
ing slavery everywhere in the United Sister,
and conferring on Congress the power to
carrv the same into cflect. Slavery i'.i Amer
ica, i.s therefore, extinct. The jieople of
bouth Carolina have aqtncsceil i;i this se
quence of the war with remarkable, cheerful
ness, especially when it is noted that her
people have been the staunchest defenders of
the institution, on principle of policy, for
more than a century that her interest in
the institution was greater, relatively, than
any of her sisters, its cash value at the lie
ginning of the war lieing more than two hun
dred millions of dollars and that, from a
settled conviction, her two great staples of
cotton and rice could only be succesdully
cultivated by compulsory labor. It cannot
be doubted that, since the dave is emanei
ated, it is the fixed purpose of the people to
secure to him his rights of person and prorw
crty as a freedman that a just remunera
tion shall hermitl him for his labor, and that
he shall lie protected againot the fraud and
violence of the artful and the lawless. They
nuirt be restrained from theft, idleness and
crime, and taught the absolute necessity of
strictly complying with their contracts for
labor." They mut be protected in their per
son and property ; and, for a few years at
least, some tupervinorv power should be es
tablished to ratifv their contracts for labor,
until their ex'ierience and increa?ing knowl-edgc-nay
teach them to guard against the
craft of tho unscrupulous. Io insure this it
will be indispensably necesaary to modify
tlie rules of evidence so as to permit the negro
to testify 111 all casos where his rights ot per
to till the soil, in some other useful employ
ment for the culture of cotton and rice ;
hi iiieiuai occupations, 11 is verv ttoubi
ful whether any laborers in this countrv or
in Europe can supply his place. His long

.w.u uiuimigu iraming in uiesu employments
give mm a certain skill anil aptitude which
a stranger can only obtain by experience. It
is, therefore, of the first importance that
such a policy should be adopted as will en
able the fanners and planters to employ the
negro, and that he-should remain cheerful

He has lieon born and reared anion"
us, and while he has, unfortunately
qualities that stamp him inferior to thowhite
man, he possesses others that it.vites our re
spect. As a class, during ..thti wan their-
loyauy lo-ineir owners ' ann to society was
worthy or the highest commendation. In
no single instance, even ivhere the slavp
population predominated over the white pop-
uiaiiun as an nunurcii to one, was mere an
outbreak or an insurrection. With a full
knowledge on their part of the nature of the
contest, and the deep personal interest they
had in tho issue, is it not wonderful tltat thev
quiolly pursued their labor, and mainly pro
duced the supplies that fed our armies ? If
there lie rcaoh to complain that the negro
h.i3 been emancipated, in derogation of tho
right and interest. of the owner, such com
plaint cannot be lodged against him ; what-
ever 01 lii-ieeimg exiits 111 tltc nnnil.s of for
nter owners for the present state of affairs, it
is not just that it should be visited on him.
Interest and humanity require its to treat
him kindly, and to elevate hira, morally and
intellectually; it will make him a hotter
laborer, neighbor and man. Suddenly re
lieved from the restraints of the servile con
dition in which hq was born and reared, his
ignorance can excite no surprise. If he is
to live in our midst, none are so deeply in
terested in enlightening and clevating'him
as ourselves. The constitution of the United
States recognized property in slaves, and an
appropriation was made by Congress to in
demnify slave owner.i in the District of Co
lumbia, when slavery was abolished in 1S01.
I, therefore, cherish the hope that Congress
will, as soon as the public debt i.s provided
for, make some just and equitable arrange
to make the citizens of the South soma com
pensation for tho slaves manumitted bv the
Lntteil States authorities. The pursuits of
South Carolina have not heretofore been suf
ficiently diversified. Agriculture was the
great business of tho State. The mechanic,
the manufacturer, and the artisan, have not
been encou.-aged to migrate hither, and the
native population have not embarked in
these employments. A harmonious combi
nation of agriculture, commerce and inanu
f.tctures and all of them are inviting in this

skillful labor this must come from the.
.North and from Luropc ; it will not conic if
we do not invite it and extend the hand of

the great resources of this State. It is to be

We have emerged from a long and disastrous

ravaged, and our wealth scattered: but wc
aro in no worse condition than our forefath

Why may not the same qualities work out
