rpLiow-ciTixEKS s As Vic6-Pres5dent of
,? National Union Club for tlw3;State 6c
V"; ..fi-Ciirolina I earnestly invite your atten-'
a to the call for a .National Convention,
!!' ! bv the Executive Committee of that
JflV and rcconimcntlerl hy many of the
-t 'eminent and patriotic members of both
hruiclics f the present Congress.
Te importance of this meeting, and the
l m-nVial consequences to result from it, can
lrsvlv he exaggerate Separated as we
f -.'Veen for the last five years from all com
unioation with the people of the North
J? w'est, know ing but little of their opin
cxct'it as expressed through the unjust
''''j oopressive action of the bitter partisan
""'ioritv which at present controls the Na
("iiual Legislature, this is the first opportu
'tv'whicTi has been afforded us to take free
"i.i cniial counsel with those who feel im-
elktl ly a sense of high patriotism to op
ie tl'o" unjust schemes of the radicals in
their systematic effort to oppress and liumil
' ite tills people of these States, and defeat, if
ptusible, the reconstruction of the Union in
Jetiuitely. t . . ,
The address states clearly the principles
upon which we are expected to act in com
mon, and it seems to me that there is not one
to whieh this State cannot subscribe in hon
or and with sincerity. We simply recognize
those results which the events of the late
war have placed beyond the bounds of any
i,'tiirp lioiitical discussion results in which
we have unanimously and sincerely acquies
ced, and in conformity" to which we have al-
reailv modified our Constitution, our legis
lation and our political sentiments.
We 'are invited to join in an acknowledg
ment of the wisdom of that policy by which
Andrew Johnson, President of the United
States, has, in the midst of difficulties un
paralleled in the history of any administra
tion, maintained the integrity ofthe Consti
tution, identified the exercise of Executive
power t ith the rules of strict justice and the
spirit of mercy, and proved his legitimate
ri'ht to succeed the great founders of the
Republic as the Chief Magistrate of a com
mon country, which can be made and pre
served as one nation only by the equal ad
ministration of just and equal laws.
TJie purpose of the Convention will be to
organize,. upon the principles set forth in the
Committee's address, all conservative men of
ail sections, and of all former parties, and, if
possible, drive from power that Radical par
ty who are daily trampling under foot the
Constitution, and fast converting a constitu
tional liepublic into a consolidated despo
tism. The great mass of the people, North and
West, have no higher interest in party than
through it ta secure the wise, enlightened
and just government of the country, and
when organization is effected ami the Presi
dent's enlightened policy of reconstruction
is presented for their approval or condemna
tion, there can be little doulit that he w ill be
triumphantly sustained, and our rights as
equals in a restored Union fully conceded.
The compact organization of the Conserv
ative men is a necessity to meet successful
ly the well-organized bands of the Radicals,
and every man who disapproves of the ty
rannical and unjust policy of the latter
should join in this national patriotic league
to defeat them.
We are without representation in both
Houses of Congress; neither our opinions
mr condition can be officially know n to the
country : unjust and discriminating taxes are
imposed on us, a people sadly impoverished
y the calamities of the last five years, and
we are allowed no voice of protest even in
the counsels of the nation. Our loyalty to j
the Government of the United States is im
pugned in the face of ouroaths of allegiance j
taken solemnly and in good 1'iith, ar.d the j
poor privilege of an oilii-ial denial is with- j
liehL We are threatened with disfranchise-
nient. and being remanded to a Territorial
condition, and we are to be denied all the
rights and privileges dear to an American,
consecrated bv the blood of the heroes of
177G. until we sulscri!e to terms too tlegra- j
ding and humiliating to be entertained by a
f.eeman for a single moment. !
We then have the deejest interest in the !
meeting of the Convention, in organizing the '
Conservative men to aid in carrying out the :
wise and generous policy of reconstruction !
inaugurated by President Johnson, ami I j
therefore reiterate the earnest hope that you j
will take immediate steps to secure the rep- i
n-sentation of this State in the Philadelphia !
Convention in August, by the wisest and i
ahlest men in the State.
As the time is short, the means of inter- j
communication between the different sec- I
tions of the State imperfect, I beg leave re-!
spectf'.illy to suggest, that public meetings of ,
the citizens of each Judicial District he held j
on the fourth Monday in July, instant, (23.) j
at the Court-house, that delegates be ap- j
pointed at these meetings to a Convention of
the State, to meet at Columbia, on Wed ties-
day, the first day of August, and that the
State Convention appoint the delegates to
Philadelphia; each Judicial District sending
as many delegates to Columbia as may be
convenient or agreeable, and that Convention
determining the vote of each District, which
will, perhaps, be a vote equal to the repre
sentation of each District in the House of
The delegation from the several judicial
districts making up the Congressional dis
tricts, will most likely be charged with the
selection of two delegates for each district,
and the whole Convention select the four
delegates at large to represent the State.
The selection of the delegates for the State
at large would seem to require a State Con
vention, and if it assembles, it would be de
sirable, as already indicated, that it should
likewise select the district delegates.
These suggestions as to the mode of select
ing a Convention the time and place of
meeting, and the basis of its organization arc
made in the hope of certainly securing ac
tion in every district, and there is not time
otherwise to settle by discussion, or consul
tation, the details which I have ventured to
make. JAMES L. OUR,
Vice-President of the Union Club for South
Carolina. Anderson, S. C, July 4, 186G.
Gov. Orr, of S. C, has appealed to Gen.
Howard to issue rations to people of his
State. He names a dozen districts where
people of both colors are crying for relict!
Corn is very scarce, and relief positively nec
essary. For some time past the health of the
Pope has appeared to be failing, and his con
dition causess no Jittle anxiety to the Cardi
nals, with whom he speaks frequently of his
approaching end. A few days ago "he was
suddenly attacked by an alarming illness.
His breathing became more and more labor
ed, so that it was impossible for him to lie
down. He consequently sat in an arm chair
until the morning.
Galveston and Houston, cities, Texas,
have increased in population very rapidly
since the war. The former city had, before
t'le war, a population of about five thousand;
now, according to a recent enumeration, the
population of Galveston is nearly twenty
thousand. Houston, a small city of between
live and six thousand inhabitants, now num
bers upwards of sixteen thousand. The
trade of the southern cities is" said to be
'luil t that of New" Orleans, population
considered. - . '- - s: ' -.

Both armies sustained terrible losses.
Austria sent in a flag of truce. She has
agreed to the cession of Venetia, and accepts
Napolean as a mediator.
Napoleon immediately communicated with
the other belligerents. Their reply has not
yet been made public. Prussia's reply is
supposed to be unfavorable.
The London Morning Post thinks that an
European Congress will be shortly assembled,
and that the French government will pro
pose a general disarmment.
In the London commercial circles, peace

The President has accepted Mr. DcnnLson's
resignation. The latter says, in his letter of
the 1 1th, tendering his resignation : "In thus
withdrawing from your cabinet, it is proper
to say that I do so chiefly because of the
difference of opinion between us in regard
to the proposed amendment of the con
stitution, which I approve, and the move
ment for the Philadelphia convention, ro
which I am opposed. My confidence in
the perpetuation of the union republican
party, and the conviction that, upon its
permanent control of the government de
pends, in a great measure, the peace and hap
piness of the country, will not permit my
holding any equivocal attitude in respect to
it. Assuring you of my personal regard and
appreciation of the uniform courtesy I have
received from you, I am respect full v, yours,

Works of Nature. I t a state of health the
ntestinal cuiul may be compared to a river
whose waters flow over the adjoining land, thro'
the channels nature or art has made, and im
prove their qualities; so long as it runs on
smoothly the channels arc kept pure and healthy ;
if the course of the river is stopped, then the
water in the canals is no longer pure, but soon
becomes stagnant. There is but oue law of cir
culation in nature. When there is a superabun
dance ol huinorial fluid in the intestinal lubes,
and costiveness takes place, it Cows black into
tlie blood vessels, and infiltrates itself into the
circulation. To establish the free course of the
liver, we must remove the obstructions which
stop its free course, and those of its tributary
streams. With the body, follow the same natu
ral principle remove the obstructions from the
bowels with Bhaxdketh's Pills, which never
injure, but arc always effectual for the perfect
cleansing of the system from foulness or disease.
Remember; never suffer a drop of blood to be ta

and as long as they arc der nged, or as long as
