8200 Saved. Rev. John W. Potter, Snow
Hill, N. C, January 6, 1863, says: "For twelve
year's I was a great sufferer. My liver was dis
eased. I lost my flesh and strength, and my skin
seemed changed in its color by the bile witli
which my system was overcharged. I became
subject to frequent and violent attacks of billions
cholic, evurv attack leaving me weaker than its
predecessor. The physicians had In-en able to
patch me up a little, but my health was in a de
plorable state. I ha I taken patent medicines un
til I was tired ef them. Without energy or com
fort, I was barely able to go about a little. At
length I yielded to the earnest persuasion of a
friend and commenced taking tho HEPATIC
PILLS, with no conttdeuce iu them. They acted
like a charm on me. From that hour I improved.
I have persevered in their use, until now, by
God's blessing, Iain icell am! hearty. I had a ne
gro man, who, as I believe, was saved from death
by a dose of these Pills. ily Doctor's bill was
aunuallv irora 6100 to $200, but I have had no use
for a physician since. I can confidently recom
mend them as a superior family medicine."

We are sending out prospectuses of the Stan
lard to our friends, and trust they will aid us in
extending the circulation of the paper.
Subscribers will please look out for the crotat
mark, and promptly renew. The mail facilities
arc so limited, and money is so scarce, that it is
i no easy task to keep a newspaper establishment
' in the South in a flourishing condition.
We hoar sv groat tloal about " adapt
ing ourselves to the situation" of le-ino-
"hopeful as to the future" of the
" bright prospoots of the South hereaf-
tor," &c. &c. Now, all this would do
j very well, if coining from the men who
foresaw our troubles, and who warned
the Southern people of the madness of
their course. L5ut coining from thosu
who counselled any and all sacrifices of
life and treasure, rather than submit to
the dishonor of living under Yankee
domination, it is in disgusting taste, to
say the least of it it is inconsistency
it is cant. The meaning of such lan
guage is, that tho future prosperity of
the South consists in honoring and pro
moting themselves, just as a few years
since tliey thought the honor of the
South could only be maintained by fol
lowing their load and advice.
The Southern people might as well
make up their minds to a realization of
their true condition. If they continue
to allow themselves to be led, controll
ed, and directed, by those who led and
cajoled them into the horrors of four
years bloody war, they cannot expect
to receive the confidence of conservative
men either North or South. The plot
ters and authors of disunion must rely
on nothing else than to retire from pub
lie view, and go into obscurity. Their
country's good requires it. The men
who were denounced and ostracised for
four years, because they would not
countenance the wild crusade of disun
ion, have a right to expect their reward.
Public opinion has declared they were
right then. They are the true represen
tative men of the reaction in the popu
lar judgment and the popular feeling.
The position of the South is a false and
inconsistent one one utterly unintelli
gible to the conservative men of the
North as long as they profess to have
discovered the folly and madness of
their course in 1860 '61, and yet select
as their representative men those who
were mainly instrumental in leading
them into error. Peace, quiet, content,
and satisfaction are not to be expected
to prevail with the true conservative,
men of the South, as long as they see
honors, rewards, and high station con
ferred on the very men who denounced
and abused them for their opposition to
secession and disunion. Those who
profess to be the true friends of Andrew
Johnson must show their sincerity by
sustaining his policy. lie has declared
time and again, in the most emphatic
terms, that the work of restoration
must be performed by his friends, the
" unmistakably " loyal men. lie does
not object to the test-oath so far as
members elect to Congress are concern
ed. On the contrary, his friends who
recently held a meeting under his own
eye in Washington, have declared that
when members are sent who can take
this bath they ought to be admitted,
but not before. The secessionists and
latter-day war men, who" are monopo
lizing all the offices and honors in the
South, are with the President so far as
his controversy with " the radicals " is
concerned. Ihey support him in every
thing that chimes with their resent
ments and prejudices, but they are si
lent and stubborn when called upon to
make sacrifices to carry out his plan in
spirit as well as letter.
The New York Watchman, Dr.
Deems' paper, says " President Johnson
surely could not so stultify himself is to
carry out the provisions of thajt most
infamous measure," meaning the civil
rights bill. What will the readers .of
the Watchman say to this ? Do they
agree with that paper that the President
ought to set before the people the exam
ple of resisting one of the laws of the
land ? Distasteful as this law may be, it
is nevertheless the, law. Is it at all com
patible with good citizenship to disre
gard a law because we do not like it?
It was just such a course as this that
involved us in our present troubles,

forces. . At the end of this period tht ,
were greatly reduced in every respec" .
They were at the mercy of the goven
ment. Theyfcwere incapable of furth

But they submitted. President Johi
son devised and put in operation hi
just, beneficent, and constitutional pla
of restoration. lie made certain coi
cessions to the conquered States, and h
required of them the performance t
certain duties. These duties were, first .
to abolish slavery ; secondly, to ignore
the rebel debt ; thirdly, to declare their
acts of secession null and void ; and as
incident to these, though he did not in
so many words require it, he expected
them to place the freedmen on the same
footing with the whites in all their nat
ural rights, such as, for instance, tht
giving of testimony and the holding o
property ; and lie took it for granted
that members would be elected to Con
gress who could take the test oath.
Every thing which was absolutely
required of the States has been done.
Some of them have neglected to place
the freedmen on the same footing with
the whites as to their natural rights;
but the civil rights bill recently passed
over the veto has done that, and there
is no longer ground for complaint op
that score. So far as the election o.
members who can take the oath is con
cerned, the action of the people o.
the States is still open to objection. But
with those exceptions, the President's
plan has been carried out. Every great
principle laid down by the President in
the name of the 1'epublic, has been
subscribed to by the Southern people ;
and they now ask the Congress to re
store them fully to their former rela
tions to the government, or tell them
plainly why they are not restored, and
what they must do to accomplish this
desirable result. They fool that the
suspense in which they are held by the
Congress is unjust to them, not to say
cruel. . They are most anxious to re
build their ruined fortunes, but the want
of confidence which this state of sus
pense creates is in their way. They
feel that they can count on nothing in
the future with that degree of confi
donee which is so necessary as a stim
ulus to enterprise and industry. They
are taxed, ainl yet they are deprived of
the full benefits of the government. A
large majority of even the Union men
are debarred from office on account of
the stringent character of the tost oath.
We advise our people to be patient to
stand by the President, aud to look to
the Congress with respect and confi
dence ; but we appeal to that body in
the most earnest terms to net in relation
to the Southern States. We do not sav
we do not care what that body may do,
for we do care, and we desire the best
terms that can be obtained for our State ;
but no matter what is in the mind of
the majority of Congress in relation to
these conquered States, let it he finally
known, so that we can accommodate
ourselves to it. Almost any thing would
be better than this suspense. Exhaus
ted by a four years war, and rendered
torpid by the doubtful, not to say dan
gerous condition in which we are placed,
we are not surprised that our people are
losing all heart, and looking for only
evil in the future.
We are not disposed at this time to
indulge in language of censure about
any one. We have had already too
much crimination and recrimination.
We admit there is much among the
Southern people to complain of, but we
hold that the majority in Congress is
not blameless. To continue this sus
pense will only aggravate every exist
ing evil. Let Congress act. The Pres
ident has completed his work, and the
Southern States are now in the hands of
Congress. We do not look to the mem
bers of that body as enemies, but as
friends. We do not ask them to perform
the work which is before them in a hastv
or careless manner, but it does seem to
its that sufficient time has elapsed for
that body to know what it intends to do.
We believe that if the President's
plan had been fully carried out iu spirit
as well as in letter, the States would
have been restored ere this. But regrets
are vain for wThat is past. Let us im
prove the present, and do better in the
future. It will be idle for us to resist
the demands of the Congress. If our
people should be dissatisfied, as they
most probably will be, with what that
body may lay down as its ultimatum, it
might as well be accepted, for an ap
peal to the Northern people would not
be at all likely to result to their benefit.
Revolutions never go backwards.
Things have at length got to such a
pass that the Northern people will be
more disposed to add to than diminish
their demands. This was not the case
ten months ago. Who is to blame for it ?
We understand that hereafter packa
ges containing letters and papers, here
tofore delivered by route agents and
mail carriers at the old postoffices,
where there were no legally authorized
postmasters, will not be delivered any
longer. The law must be enforced, and
hereafter no mail matter will be deliv
ered at or for postoffices where there is
not a postmaster or postmistress legally
We .trust the people in all parts of
the State will af once! go : to work and
have postmasters and postmistresses
appointed who can take the bath. Works
of charity and humanity towards Con
federate soldiers or their families will
not prevent a person from taking the
oath.- Let the names of persons be sent

aurcssHs. XiOitoks : paying aside our
hitherto besetting sin of political strife and
agitation, I hope the people ot North-Caro
lina and the South generally, will vie with
each other in the march ot intellect, science
and improvement. The held is wide enough
for all. Commerce, the liberal arts, science,
agriculture, manufactories in this one State,
invite the participation of all men capi
talists, mechanics, farmers, planters, mer
chants and artisans. Let, then, the people
of the " Old North State," in their capacity
as citizens and land-holders assemble, as
some have done already, in public assem
blies, and pass resolutions encouraging im
migration from the hills and valleys of the
North, to our fair Southern land.
There may be many men in our midst who
will raise objections to this course of pro
ceeding. But let me ask these men, are we
not men of a common country? Do we not
believe the men of New York, Pennsylvania,
Maryland, Ohio, and indeed New England,
are as energetic and economical, are just as
good neighbors and citizens, as are the
Swedes and Germans, the French or Hollan
ders ? Have not our hands, ''once gorj'
with our brothers' blood," been clasped in
holy friendship ? Has not the government
of our country acted generously in the mat
ter of amnesty and political pardons ? Can
the' doubt that it will redound to the in
terests of the South ?
Ours is a lovely clime. In our yards bloom
the lilly and the rose; our giant oaks are
incomparable. The eljn and pine, the cypress
and the hickory, are our native growth. The
soil is admirably adapted to the cultivation
of cereals, tobacco, cotton, and vegetable
production. Our minerals are world renown
ed. Internal improvement with giant stride
has passed from our seaboard to the moun
tains on our western border, and binds us
with iron bands to the sister States on the
North and South. All we now want is an
extension of what has already been accom
plished. For this capital is requisite, and
! also men to manage and superintend the dis
bursement and application ot this treasure.
I live in hope. CENSOR.
Lost Georgia Notep. The following act
of the Legislature of Georgia, prescribing a
method of reproducing lost notes and bonds,
will be of interest to business men having
connections there :
An Act amendatory of the laic relating to the
entablixhment of lost papers.
Sec. 1. The General Assembly do enact, That
from and after - the. passage of this act the
owner or legal representative of any bond,
bill, note, draft, check, or other evidence of
indebtedness which has been lost or destroyed
may establish a copy thereof by giving per
sonal notice at least ten days previous to the
day appointed, which notice shall contain a
copy of the paper to be established, which
notice shall be served on the party against
whom said indebtedness is sought to be es
tablished, and by making oath before some
officer authorized to administer an oath that
he is the owner of such paper, and that the
same has been lost or destroyed. A copy
thus established with said affidavit attached,
may be used in any court of this State in lieu
of the lost original.
Sc. 2. Be it further enacted, That if any
party who is liable for the payment of said
lost paper, in whole or in part, or whose in
terests are affected by the establishment of
said paper, shall make oath that the said
paper never existed, or that the same has
been paid off or discharged, the party seek
ing to establish the same in the summary
manner herein provided, shall be remitted to
the remedies heretofore provided by law.

Jeff. Davis. The chief of Rebel conspira

hensions are entertained that he will perish
in his prison an event that might not cause
very profound sorrow in loyal minds, though
it would certainly convert him into a martyr
in the estimation of traitors. Meanwhile,
Congress by resolution is urging upon the
President his trial by some Court of conine-

be about time that some decision should be
reached in this matter, and that it should be
disposed ot in a manner befitting the disrnitv
of a great nation. If Davis is to be tried at
all, let that fact appear and let the issue be
met boldly, frankly, and at once. For our
own part, we do not see what is to be gained
by the mere formality of his conviction
