Upon it. This was defeated by tho exer

jthe Jublio scandal of the matter, and
genbral complaint against it, prompted
.the President to interfere. The followi
ing telegraphic dispatch, which appeared
in all tho leading papers in tho principal
cities of the North and West on tho 7th
of January, 16C3, gives Mr. Lincoln's
nation upon it.
.Washington, Jan. C DopnUtions of
Jews begani arriving hero yesterday, to
solicit the President to countermand or
jmodily the order of General Grant, exclud
ing Israelite; from his lines. The opera
tion of it upon families and merchants long
(efltabliBhed in regular business, proved ex
ceedingly oppressive, and produced great
lexciteracnt in every city in tho West. On
the application, last night, of Mr. Kaskel,
one of the expelled Jewijli citizens ofPa
ducah, sustained by Itepresentative Gurlcy,
of Ohio, the President instructed Gen.
Ilalleck to countermand the order iinpera
. lively. Such countermand was sent West
this morning Iby telegraph.
All this too gravely affects tho characn
tor of the Radical candidate for the
Presidency for us to treat it as a matter
which ho has to settle only with the soct
that was named in his order Tho
ulterior purposo of it relievos it from tho
imputation of bigotry, only to stamp it
with a worso character. Political in
genuity has not yet framed oven a
plausible defonso of it, in fnco of the dam
ning statements in old Grant's aflidavits.
All dofonBcs of tho son must begin with
charging tho old man with perjury, and
tha is bad for tho wholo "Grant family."
It is also rcmarkablo, that since the ex
posure of this cotto.n transaction, Butler
has fraternized with Grant; thoroisnow
no difference between them so nil tho
Radical papers announce.
THE KEVOLUTIOX IN THE POLITICS
OF THE NEGRO EN.
Correspondence of tho 3Iomphis Ledger
Lagrange, Tenn., Aug. 24. There is
still considerable political excitement hero
and in the vicinity, particularly among tho
colored voters, who have been greatly
"stirred up" by the speeches of John 1.
Harris, Jackson Jones, Marengo JohnBon,
Barley Mitchell, Lawrence Johnson, and
other efficient colored orators. It is un
questionably true that a great change in
the political views of the frcedmtn has
begun and la now happily progressing un
der the most favorable circumftances.
Club are being organized at nearly all the
county and cross-road towns in this end of
the State, and, from what I glean from the
papers, 1 infer the same thing is going on
alrVovcr the South. A Seymour and Blair
colored club has juat been organized at
li.i? i- i .
iMjiivar, wim a targe ana constantly in
creasing roll of members. The same may
be said of Whiteville, Newcastle, Salusbury,
Grand Junction, Hickory Valley, and this
ptacv. The colored speakers, Jones, Jonn
son and Mitchell, who went down to Mem
phis yesterday, will return In a day or two.
and continue the good work in all parts of
the adjacent region in lennessee. lucse

Some thirty years ago or so; a voracious

universally' celebrated association of
British gentlemen :
Mr. Blolton fof Aldcrate rose lb order.
Did the honorable Pickwickian allude to,
him? (Cries of order 1 ' order 1 chair I,'
Mr. Pickwick wouldjiol be. put up to "be,

Mr. Blolton would only say', then that he
repelled the false and scurrilous accusation
with profound contempt (grea' sensation)

Mr. bnodgrasa rose to order Must this
disgraceful difficulty continue ?
Ihe Chairman felt it to be hu impera

whether he had used the expression which
had just escaped him in a common sense?
Mr. Blotton had no hesitation in Baying
that he had not he had used the word in
its Pickwickian sense. (Hear 1 Hear.) He
was bound to acknowledge that ho enter
tained the highest regard and esteem for
the gentleman personally. He had merely
considered him as a humbug in a Pick
wickian point of view.
Mr. Pickwick felt much cratihed by tho
full, candid, and fair explanation of his
honorable friend. He wished to be under

intended merely to bear a Pickwickian
Blotton and Pickwick shook hands at
Grant and Butler now shako hands,
nnd, adds the faithful historian of the
"slight misunderstanding,!' which for a
time clouded their friendly rolations :
This terminates the matter in a manner

Butler, and must necessarily not only give
great relief to the loyal public, but impart

THE It.VNK OF SOUTH CAKOI.INA
ANIsTHi: ritEIiITOF THE STATE.
The telegraph has reported the fact of the
passage of a bill by the South Carolina Leg
islature, repudiating the foreign claims
against the Bank of the State, and author
izing the Governor to take possession of the
assets. The Charleston Courifr gives the
following statement of tho case:
"Dabnev. Morgan & Co.. as holders of
tho liills of tho Bank of the State, on behalf
of themselves and others, some timo sinco
filed their bill in the Court of Equity, claim
ing that the assets of the bank should be sold
and the proceeds applied to tho payment of
the notes of the hanfc which were outstand
ing. Tho Baring Brothers & Co., of London,
and others of this country, who are the hold
ers and owners of the bonds known as the
fire loan bonds, filed their answers, netting
up the followinc rights : First, That by the
act of tho 1st of June, A. D. 1838, entitled,
'An act for rebuilding the city of Charles
ton,' it was declared 'that it ehall be tho
duty of the president and directors of tho
UanKorSouth Carolina to make proper pro
vision for the punctual payment of tho in
terest of euch loans as may be effected upon
the credit of the State, under the provisions
of this act, and also for the ultimate pay
ment of the principal thereof
"Second, That by the other sections oi
the act the assets of tho bank: were made
directly responsible to the holders of tho
bonds, and that these, therefore, had a Hpe-
cial claim as creditors ot the banic as a cor
poration -and upon the assets of the same,
as well as upon the State itself. Third,
That the assets of the bank were, therefore,
under the existing laws of the Legislature,
pledges of the past, liable primarily to the
navment of the fire loan bonds and then to
the outstanding bills and notes, and that
any other construction would impair tho
obligations of contracts and be contrary to
good faith, equity or conscience. The mer
its of this cause are now pending before the
Court of Equity. It has been submitted to
tho law, and by the law it should bo deter
mined. In fact, it cannot legally be other
wise, for by tho provisions of even the ex
isting Btatutes it is declared that the Chan
cellors of the Court of Equity shall, until
the first day of January, A. D. 18G9, 'con
tinue to discharge the duties nnd functions
of their respective offices for the disposition
of causes which are now pending.' And
this is one of the cases 'now pending.' It is
clear, therefore, that the Assembly in Col
umbia is neither competent to decide the
important legal questions involvedj nor has
it the authority. It is Bimply another at
tempt at Radical leeislation without regard
to Ihe recognized tribunals of the Slate,
and which can only end in confusion and
injustice. In other words, it is a matter en
tirely for the courts of the country, and not
for the legislative department."
TAI.E OF A LOST SWOBD.
from the -Macon (fla.) Telecraph.
At the battle of Gettysburg Lieut A. A.
Freeman, of the Floyd Rifles, Macon, was
eeverely wounded, and whilelyiugdwabled
on the field, dispatched a servant with his
sword and trappings back to the Confede
rate line?. On his way, bearing this sword
and two others, the boy was captured by a
Federal ollicer, who took possession of the
aworda. This cummer, tho foreman of our
job office, Mr. Ricks, while on a ramble'
North, encountered the captor, who, Earn
ing that Mr. It. resided in Macon, inquired
for Lieut. Freeman, saying that he had a
sword in possession presented to such an
officer by tho Floyd Rifles. Ou Mr. Rick's
assurance that Lieut, Freeman was still
alive and well, a return of the weapon was
proraistd, and last Saturday it oaino by ex
press, with a very gentlemanly letter, of
which the following is the concluding para
