Testimony f Hon. Bedford Brown,
Of North-Carolina, lefore the Reconstruction
Hon. Bedford Brown, formerly .United
States Senator from North-Carolina, was ex
amined in respect to that btatc. ; Although
he had served the people of North Carolina,
in a legislative capacity, during the war, he
had always been Union, and non-secessionist
on principle, lie ininKs t wo-rnircis or mree
fourths of the people of the State unitedly
onnosed to secession. The masses of the
people at the time of Lee's surrender were
more gratified than otherwise, because thev
saw that the result was inevitable. Many of
them were for peace, and believed there was
no safety out ot -the Union. They were grat
ified that the question had been settlca in
some wav. Of late thev had became very
despairing, perhaps in part from the loss of
slave property, tliougu cnieiiy rrom rue long
ia a widf. fnnlinr of discontent even among
Union men. The great mass of the people
are exceedingly anxious to have the relations
hpteppn the. State ana tne a ecierai uovcra-
mnnt restored. Some few persons would.
perhaps, be gratified by a foreign war, but
the great mass are perfectly willing to live
under the laws of the United States, provided
they can have political equality with the other
The longer this is procrastinated, the
worse the feeling of discontent will become.
Some nortions of the people, in the event of
a war with Great Britain or France, would
probably engage in another attempt at seces
sion, and the establishment of Southern in
dependence; but a great majority would
suppress such an attempt if there were rea
sonable expectations that they could be ad
mitted to equal political rights in the Union.
The best way to remove this feeling of dis
content among the people would be to de
clare the State a member of the Federal
Union, and admit her representatives to
their seats, Congress, of course, judging of
the members presenting themselves separate
ly. Disloyal men should be excluded ; but
men should be admitted even if the great
majority of their constituents were actual
disloyalists. The question of admission
should depend rather upon the character and
qualification of the claimant than upon those
of his constituents. If his district was mani
festly disloyal beyond all question, it would
perhaps be a justification for his exclusion.
The witness thinks a majority of the people
would be wilhnsr to pay the Deacral ileiit.
though the tax-payers do not regard it aa
Avery decided and overwhelming majority
would be opposed to the payment of the
Confederate war debt. He does not know of
anv combination open or secret to make
lurther resistance to the Government or to
renew the war in anv shape. He believes
that Northern men going into North-Carolina
to invest capital in lands, manufactures, &c,
wodd be received in a friendly manner, and
treated with justice in the State courts. The
freedmen in his part of the State were acting
very well, and the general sentiment among
the tarmers and planters is to treat tuem witn
iairness. There; is a disinclination lor pro
miscuous schools .for whites and blacks.
But the better class of people do not object
to schools for blacks separately. The oflicers
of the Freedmen's Bureau have generally
been liberal toward both the freedmen and
white people ; but he hardly thinks there is
any further necessity for maintaining the
Bureau, as black men would stand as good a
chance in the State courts as white men if
thev were of eood character, and there are
no particular prejudices against them. The
poor whites are generally considered as hav
ing a higher claim to credibility than the
negroes. Universal negro suffrage would be
regarded as very objectionable and wholly
inadmissible ; but . a good many persons
would have no objection to seeing qualified
negro suffrage. He does not think it possible
to establish restricted suffrage among the
whites, and thinks none of them would ever
surrender Jhe right to vote if they could
The HrssrNG Affair. The atrocious in
sult offered to the national flag, the portrait
of "Washington, and a national air by a num
ber of rebels at the .old theatre on Saturday
night has excited deep indignation among
the most moderate Union men, as well as
among the more ultra ones. Several gentle
men have declared that they were done with
conservatism after that display of disloyalty.
A stern policy i3 the only one to employ in
dealing with the rabid haters of the govern
ment and all its honored insignia, symbols,
and emblems. We .assure the persons en
gaged in the hissing business that the Amer
ican people are determined that every man
who lives under .the United States 'flag shall
either love it or fear it. J they have not the
good sense to love it, the soldiers who put
down the rebellion have the power to make
them dread it. God forbid that ever an in
vading army should enter our territory again,
but it will if necessary to crush out the hiss
ing serpent of treason. Naaht'dle Times and
Press, May 1.
Mr. Davi8 Again. Fortress Monroe,
April 28. JefE Davis, I am-told, expresses
the hope that he is to be brought speedily to
trial. In the shadowy remoteness and un
certainty of a general amnesty, I think there
can be uo doubt, however, but he would pre
fer an immediate decision of his fate to being
kept much longer in prison. A doctor who
knew him during the war, and saw him a
few days since for the -Brat -time since his
capture, assures me that he has most per
ceptibly and painfully failed in health since
his incarceration. His face is very much
thinner, his hair is grayer, and his step is
not at all assured. . He rested frequently in
his walks, and every lineament of his "face
and every movement betrayed physical ener
gies wasted and worn to a degree giving as
surance of but little remaining vitality. This
gentleman says he cannot live the summer
out in prison. Cor. of New York Herald.

THURSDAY. - - - MAY 10. 1866.
Pardons for North-Carolinians.
The Sentinel at last admits that the Presi
dent has not ordered the pardon of all North
Carolinians whose applications are on file.
The Sentinel thinks the report that all have
been pardoned is a mere sensation report,
gotten up for effect. It certainly created a
sensation with the Sentinel. That paper was
delighted for a little while, but it now says :
" We learn, from a friend in Washington,
cognizant or the tacts, mat mis uuiiuunue
meut is premature. What has been done is,
that finite a number of those, whose crime
. , i i . t... , 1 .1,
was simply nonung u pcny mura uiiuu iuu
late Confederate Government, have been par
doned, most of them upon the recommenda
tion of Gov. Worth, and that their pardons
will be forwarded in a short time, liie ar
rangements made by Gov. Worth, in refer
ence to this matter, are such as will insure
the most prompt and the earliest action pos
sible in the premises. The President, how
ever, must select his own time and way to
dispose of them."
How can any " arrangements " which Gov.
Worth may make "insure the most prompt
and the earliest action possible V The mat
ter of pardons is with the President. Gov.
Worth can " insure " nothing in this respect.
By the way, the Sentinel has done gross
injustice to the Provisional Governor in re
lation to pardons. It would do no good to
correct this injnstice. Let it be. We may
observe, however, that the Sentinel has been
among the State archives, and it says they
" shall be made to reveal other facts of not
less ominous import than the foregoing."
Let. us have these "ominous" facts, Mr.
Sentinel. What are they ?
The Sentinel has recently been engaged in
trying to prove that Gov. Worth has influ
ence at Washington. We have nothing
against Gov. Worth personally, and we re
gret we cannot agree with him politically.
For the good of the State and the benefit of
our people we should be gratified if Gov.
Worth had not only some influence, but
much influence at Washington, provided he
would not use it to the injury of the true
Union men. Up to a certain period his
record as a Union man was good. But Lu
cifer fell, and so did our worthy Governor.
He was elected Governor by the secession
vote over a true and tried Unionist, and
elected because he pandered to secessionists
and they expected to use him. We have the
testimony of the President himself that his
election under the circumstances, icus a Mow
well nigh fatal to the btate. He is less a
Union man now than when he was elected.
We regret this, but it is so. lie is further
than ever from his old friends, ne is at
length fully in the embraces of the seces
sionists of those who sought to destroy the
government, and who would rather see it
blasted forever than restored on terms that
would exclude thorn from power.
The Sentinel sneers at the " best govern
ment in the world," and says it has " strip
ped" our people, and made them the poorest
of any peojjle on earth." This is not so.
Our people have been stripped, impoverish
ed, and ruined by the secessionists and their
latter-day war allies like the Editors of the
Sentinel. We tried to prevent this. We
called on the State to resist Mr. Davis and
iorce a peace, which would have prevented a
vast deal of the suffering, loss, and calamity
which have overtaken us ; but we were not
regarded, save as a traitor to the Confeder
ate cause. The counsel of others was taken,
and the result is known. The Sentinel will
not be permitted to falsify history by charg
ing that the federal government is the prime
cause of our ruin. Up to the moment when
the cotton States made the fatal plunge, the
South had known the government only ii
benefits and blessings, and so far as the gov
ernment was concerned, it had made no
threat even against the South. It was seces
sion that ruined us.
We know it is unpopular at this time, ir.
this quarter, to write these things and pub
lish them, but we intend to maintain the
truth without regard to consequences.
We learn from the Wadesborough Argiu
that Gov. Worth has appointed Gen. Atlat
J. Dargan, of Anson, one of his Aids with
the rank of Colonel. The General accepts
It is a noteworthy fact that Gov. Worth
has thus far appointed no unconditional
Union man to office. The time will soon
come to appoint Directors in the various
Railroad corporations. We predict that
every out-and-out Union man will be ejected,
and secessionists or latter-day war men ap
pointed in their places.
Our neighbors of the Sentinel appear to be
distressed at the idea that something may be
done, somehow or other, to prohibit them
from voting. If " the Confederacy " had
succeeded Union men would have been pro
scribed, their property confiscated, and unless
they had begged pardon on their knees or
fled the country, they would have been mur
dered. Our amiable neighbors would have
said amen, especially to the latter. Do our
neighbors really think they ought to be
allowed to vote, in the Union, under the
stars and stripes, side by side with loyal
Union men 1 Let them catch their breath
and say really, before they answer. No
swearing allowed in school.
From Fortress Monroe.
Fort Monroe, May 6. The revenue cutter
Northerner, with Secretary McCulloch and
family, arrived here this morning on a short
visit here and to Norfolk. They retured to
Washington this afternoon.
It is confidently stated here that the visit
of Mrs. Jefferson Davis to this place promises
to be of long duration. During yesterday
Major General Miles, acting, under instruc
tions from Washington, directed Lieutenant
McElrath, the post quaterm aster, to turn
over for her accommodation one of the case
mates of the Fortress. It is understood that
Mrs. Davis applied for a room in Carroll Hall,
where her husband is confined, but was re
fused by General Miles. The conditions of
the visit of Mrs. Davis, which were made
known shortly after she arrived here, permit
her to have free intercourse with her husband
during all hours of the day. and strictbdjm-
It is stated that Secretary McCulloch. had
an interview with Mr. Jefferson Davis whil i

Correspondence of the Baltimore, San. '
The Bank Failure The Colorado Bill ' to be ve
toedThe , Committee Constitutional - Amend
ment goes overr Jfext President.
Washington, May 6. rThe Treasury De
partment has appointed a receiver to take
charge of the affairs of the Merchants' Na
tional Bank. We may expect from him an
early report of the-result of his investigation
into the concerns of the association.
A thorough investigation of the affairs of
this bank will suggest some necessary modi
fications of the law creating the national
bank system, both for the protection of the
government and of private citizens.
The President will undoubtedly veto the
Colerado State bill. The policy of Congress
is to disfranchise eleven States, and enfran- "
chise certain bogus Territories, and thus to
perpetuate their two-thirds power. If they
can get a number of radical Senators by di
viding Tennessee and admitting several more
Territories, they will probably do it.
As the internal revenue bill will occupy
the House this week, the report of the com
mittee of fifteen proposing a constitutional
amendment will not be taken up very soon,
if at all. It will probably be recommitted,
with instructions to the effect that, before
they proceed to tinker the constitution again,
they should be required to read that instru
ment. The third section of their proposed
amendment, prohibiting persons who had
participated in the rebellion from voting for
presidential electors till 1870, shows that the
committee were ignorant of the fact that
electors may be chosen by State legislatures.
Mr. Stevens, of Pennsylvania, nominated
Gen. Grant for the next presidency in his
speech on Friday. He says that the contest
for the presidency is fast narrowing down to
a choice between Grant and Lee.
We give the above for what it is worth.
If no change for the better should take place
in Southern feeling before 18G8, Gen. Lee
would distance Gen. Grant or any other
loyal man in the recently insurgent States.
The Union men of the South receive no en
couragement from any quarter. If they are
not utterly depressed it is owing to their
devotion to principle and their own indom

Washington, May 7. The Senate was
occupied with the question of reconsidering
the vote by which the amendment to the
st Office Appropriation Bill, restricting
the President from making removals from
ollice, was passed. A number of speeches
were made on both sides, when the vote was
taken and the amendment reconsidered, af
ter whicli the Senate adjourned.
The House considered the new Tax liili,
and also resolved to hold evening sessions in
the future. The Reconstruction Report
conies up to-morrow.
Assault on an Ofllrcr of the Freedmen's Bnrean.
Macon, Ga., May 2. At Augusta yester
day James Taut made a brutal assault upon.
Captain Bryant, of the Freedmen's Bureau,
striking him several times over the head and
stunning him. The assault was utterly un
provoked, and, as I understand, grew out of
some offence taken by Taut at Captain Bry
ant s action in reference to the attempt or
the colored people to decorate the graves of
the Union dead with flowers. Taut was ar
rested and held to bail to appear before the
Recorder's Court on Friday.

of the murders agree with tlie general belief

New York, May 7. The 'report from the

Some ob the Outrages of the Bdreatt
in No3TH-Carolina.- Opposite Newbern,
on the other side of the river, some twenty-
five hundred freedmen have been settled tor
five vears past. Thev were invited there by
the military, and located on little plats of
ground, which they were allowed to cultivate.
Eisrht months asro. Edward S. Fitz, a Massa
chusetts preacher, was placed in charge of
: the Trent Itiver settlement by captain James,
j another New England preacher, who was
then conducting the Bureau here. A system
of extortion and cruelty was immediately in
; augurated. Fifty cents a month ground rent
was demanded for every plat on whicn tne
miserable little cabins were erected. Every
negro who owned a boat had to pay two
dollars and a half a month, or his boat was
foreited. Every darkey who kept a store
was taxed five dollars a month. Every one
who owned a horse was taxed a similar
amount. Failure to pay any of these exac
tions was punished by the imprisonment of
the man or Ins wile preference being given
to the wife the confiscation of all his little
property, and in many cases the tearing
down of his house. A negro who quarrelled
with his wife was fined one hundred dollars.
and sent to prison until he paid it. All these
extortions were practised upon a population
steeped in the deepest povertv, scourged y
disease, and many of them wanting the com
mon necessaries ot hie ; and in this manner
anincome of at least eight hundred dollars a
month was derived bv the Bureau. Corres-
oondence of the New York Herald.
We do not know how much truth there is
in the above. We should be glad to know
that it is unfounded. It is the peculiar duty
of the Bureau, while it is just to the whites,
to treat the colored people kindly, and to re
alize nothing in the way of profits from the
poverty of this unfortunate race.

unable to keep a stock in the hands o our local
agents, as it was our practice before the war. All
business transactions being now reduced to cash,
our sales will be made on the basis of ready pay.
Our Gins are too well known to reqnire any
special notice or commendation; we believe they
are unrivalled in the chief points of excellence
which go 1 o make np a superior machine, namely :
Snmvt. linht dranvht and aood sam.nl;.
four DOUBLE CYLINDER GINS will be found
superior to the single cylinder when parties have
steam or good water power, to give them the
necessary speed. In all cases when this can be
done, we recommend tliera in preference to the
single cylinder. If, however, indifferent or in
sufficient power is used; they will not do as well,
as the single Gin.
