Connected with the ancient burying
ground are several particulars which
deserve notice. You approaeh it through
a magnificent avenue ol ancient cedars,
and over the mam gate, you read, in
letters of eold, " Blessed are the dead
which die in the .Lord.
Upon entering, you see on the re

the congregation, and to the left, the fe

to married brethren and sisters,and then,
also in separate squares, come the single
brethren and sisters : and lastly the
little boys and girls. Thus you can
alway find the diiFerent classes without
trouble. Thus the remains of husband
and wife, parent and child, and brother
and sister, are, according to onr ideas,
separated in their last resting places on
earth ; but they are not considered as
separated in death, because they are all

Brother Psxi y .Cv ... .;''Jif -: .'
1 1 promised to keep Tyou posted about
the ' Radicals" downherei and hence I
write to-you again. ' - '
The " Northern Radicals " are won
dering how much respect you have for
a Southern Radical, and like: all other
Yankees dyed in the wool, they are a
calculating set, and they want you to
give them the true measure so that they
may let their friends who hav'nt hearn
tell of you, know how much. You have
written,' " still, we have far more respect
as we have often said, for a Northern
than we have for a Southern Radical."
I tell them, brother, that you have
not got any respect for any Radical be
cause you just wrote before the forego
ing sentence quoted from your true
" Southern newspaper, but we hold that
the man who is a Radical in political
faith does not possess good principles,"
and, I do not believe that you have any
respect for any man (except, perhaps,
a " Worth-Johnson " man) who does
not posses good principles.
The Radicals say that some of the
Worth-Johnson men possess good priii
siples but most of them do not possess
any principles unless, " Hurra for John
son and my policy be a principle,
tell them, brother, that most of us don't
know what else to hurra for until we
get to ourselves, and then we hurra for

even hesitate about copying or repeat
ing an oatn, ana l pray you to preach
to our Worth-Johnson men a discourse
from the commandment, " Thou shalt
not take the name of the Lord thy God in
vain," 4c. And J, brother, it you
have no respect for the 4 Rads ' do for
mercy's sake preach or publish through
your secession paper, some discourses
that you should at onee prepare, on
swearing, for they do swear terribly
ders. It is a wool dyed Yankee prac
tice, i ney say most ot the trucking,

all the offices filed bi themselves." In
this matter about the offices, brother, if
tne riamcais are divided among them
selves, let us not split among ourselves.
Offices first, and restoration on ' my pol
icy ' or a separate Confederacy after
ward, that is my Johnson-Worth, or
Worth-Johnson sentiment, whichever
way you can fix it best to carry the elec
tions one more time, perhaps, in North
Carolina. Brother, watch the " Free Mulatto
Covention " in Raleigh on the 20th inst.
These " mean whites " are alter the offi
ces for themselves and the free mnlat-
toes? They will be after them by and by

dices of the people against the nigger.

Southern Radical sympathizers unmis
takably loyal men who are justly held

degrade and disfranchise the brave and

ving the thonsands of noble dead, who
fell fighting for our just and righteous
cause of Southern independence. The
pnd will iustifv the means. Bet.tnr than
carry out the Radical platform, and let
iberty and property, and even life itself
in the South, be held by a tenure so
precarious as to be worthless, risk an
other civil war. Better ba fiayed alive
than accept the odious proposed con
stitutional amendment which would
place us by our own submission before
the " Rump Congress," to " down, and
beg for mercy" of two-thirds of the
wool-dyed xankee ludges, anyone
of whom would be a jew compared with
Jeftreys. Welcome not and bloodshed
to all free negroes, and death or banish
ment to all " mean whites," or " unmis-
tably loyal" men, rather than affiliate
with the cursed " Kadicals." Brother,
they are such " mean white," " coward-
a n . 11 11 1
ly wretcnes, uesuuue ot an neignDony
kindness," do you think it would be
wrong to revile them, and " to speak all

these " Radicals" down here, who are

North Carolina Itadicale, the " vilest of
the vile." The Scriptures can't forbid
one's cursing in his heart of hearts a

talkingin a horse laugh about our Na

nate candidates. "J. J. Roberson,"
said he, " the chairman, a National Un

Johnson, not a word about Worth, the

mashed his white, chattering teeth
down his " unmistakably loyal" throat.

was reading, out- all over " snriling -the,

word about Worth "of Johnson,'' said he,r
" but tley are like one cheering,, beam
of hope, or glimmering day." jfs there
no mistake' about . the publication of.
these proceedings from Northampton ?
The Kadicals here praise them, and ilol
den has published them. There must
be something wrong. This one is " un
mistakably loyal," say the "Radi
Resolved That whilst it is natural for
us to desire the return of the State to
her former Constitutional relations with
the Federal Government upon the most
favorable terms, yet since the end of
the recent unfortunate strife of arms,
we have submitted, and as law-abidm
and Union- r Loving citizens we expect
to submit, to all the requirements con
stitutionally imposed upon us by the
authorities of the General Government
in view of the peace, future and above
all, of the perpetual and eternal union
of the States.
Brother, you cannot indorse the
foregoing resolution. I can indorse it
with all my heart. I would not deceive
you, but charity, charity, CHARITY,
brother Pell. In the name ot Uod,
have vou forerotten charity ? Do vou
think that a native-born North Caroli
nian who loves his State " according to
his bond," but " would not love her
all ;" who loves his country, its flag,
constitution, government, and whole
people, ought to be stigmatized out of a
devilish, contemptible partizan spirit as
a "mean white ?" Do you think that
a citizen of the State ought now to be
proscribed and " put down" because he
never sought nor neer desired to " hu
miliate" the people of his State, " his
kindred, and neighbors and friends, by
the defeat and disaster and loss of prop
erty and life, which civil war has
brought upon those who would bring it
on, as well as upon him and others who
did what they could to prevent its com
ing, and wrho, mainly from sympathy,
acquiesced in that war, which has plac
ed him and others in an odious relation
of" traitor to one country,'' as Presi
dent Johnson charges before the whole
American people and the world ? To
be compared with a free mulatto a
comparison odious to your taste and
sense ? To be persecuted as cowardly,
without attachment for neighborly ties ?
Brother Pell, do not show such a
want of " respect" for a " Southern Rad
Ax " unmistakably Loyax" JMan.
Jenny Lind. "The Sweedish Nightin
gale," atter so many years of domestic re
tirement, seems inclined to let the world
hear her molodious notes once more. She
still lives in a magnificent house, surrounded
by extensive grounds, in Wandsworth, four
or five miles trom London, where with her
husband and her group of beautiful children
she is realizing the pleasures of" Home, sweet
home," and where she received an elegant
hospitality of the most distinguished people
of England and of foreign lands. About
two weeks ago she appeared at a concert in
St. James' Hall : and next Monday she is to
appear there again, on this occasion for the
benefit of the wounded soldiers of the sever
al nations of Europe now engaged in war.
When she came upon the stage, two weeks
ago, the audience rose, waved handkerchiefs
shouted and applauded for several moments
in a most rapturous manner. In appearance
she is no longer young ; she is very thin and
bony ; her face is pale and lined as if by time
and care; but her manner was that of the
same girlish simplicity which years ago was
so great a charm. There was the utmost
eagerness to catch the tones of her voice, and
to ascertain if it had lost any of its old rich
ness, sweetness and power. The first verse
or two of the song indicated a slight weak
ness and huskiness; then there was almost a
break, and the room was as still as death in
fear of failure ; when Jenny seemed to rally
beneath the embarrassment, to rouse all her
old powers : and the remainder of the song
was given with a splendid full and triumph
ant gust of voice. The delight of the audi
ence was unbounded, and she retired from
the stage in a perfect storm of applause. A
very pretty scene occurred when later in the
evening she sang her famous " bird song."
Her children were sitting just beneath her,
on the seat nearest the stage ; and the little
things were the first to lift their hands and
clap them together with delight at their
mother's success ; and as she withdrew, tak
ing no notice of the general acclamation, she
smiled her loving recognitions at her chil
dren and threw them kisses. The scene was
so natural and so genuine in its tender fa
miliarity as to draw tears from many eyes.
Plain rules for very young gentlemen about
to commence life forthe first time :
1st. When you eat, always use a knife and
fork unless you have mush and milk for
dinner, then exercise your judgement, and
be sure to open your mouth when your elbow
crooks ; in all means quit eating when you
2d. When you enter a parlor, always enter
at a door, andtake at once the most comfort
able seat. If you use tobacco, (and of course
you do), and are not an expert in the polite
accomplishment of close firing at the bars of
coal grate, call for a spitdish, and bore the
center every time.
3d. Always lead in conversation, main
taining all j'our points with the'nervous te
nacity of a rat terrier, never letting go your
hold on the attention you have excited unless
it is tew spit on your hands.
4th. Avoid modesty as you would a mill
dew, and never blush, unless it is immedi
ately after brandy and water.
5th. When you are in luv, which will be
every now and then, study poetry and pizen,
tork Injin, and go into a pale decline, then
to save yourself, take a dose of castor ile and
wait the next attack with becoming com
6th. JXever smoke American segars. 1
have known hundreds of promising young
men ruined in this way. Swear a little in
all company and take at least one newspaper.
7th. Raise a mustache if you have to poul
tice your lip to do it. Despise all employ
ment, and shudder when you meet a me
chanic. 8th. Know all the intrigue and scandal of
the town. Bet ten dollars on every thing;
call your father the old man, avoid every ap
pearance of politeness to him, and lodge out
Perfect yourself in the above primary rules
before you presume upon the second degree,
(too much haste has blasted a great many
buds of promise,) and be just with yourself.
If, on enquiry you find you are not put down
ass" plum," you may conclude that you
have mistaken your genius, and have no
hopes in the ornamental walks of life.
Mark for Whisky Barrels. The Rev
enue Commissioner has decided that upon '
barrels of whisky manufactured since Sep

branded, and upon whisky manufactured "
previous to that date, the words " manufac- :
tared prior to September 1st" are to be
stamped plainly on each barrel. , '

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER SO, 1866.
''. The Restoration of the Union.
We can look for nothing like permanent
prosperity until the Union is restored. We
shall have no capital from a distance, no em
igration, no Davment of claims held bv our
citizens against the government for property
taken or destroyed during the war no ade-
quate or reliable means to stimulate enter-
prise and industry, and no solid foundation
for business of any kind until the State is
restored. Meanwhile the ill feeling between
the North and South is increasing, and
threats are freely uttered looking to another
civil war. Every thoughtful, sensible citi-

give all his efforts and energies to the speedy
and final settlement of our troubles. The
Union is the paramount good. We shall have
no peace, no security against renewed civil
war, no prosperity, until it is restored.
We can not hope that the Union Conven
tion to assemble here to-day will be a large
body. The notice for it has been too short,
and many who would come are too destitute
of means to afford the expense of the trip.
We trust, however, that many true men will
oe nere irom various parts of the State, and
that such action will be taken as will re
dound to the good of the country. We are
satisfied that if some such sterling Union
man and patriot as Gen. ALFRED DOCK
ERY, of Richmond, can be brought into the

move at once at the first tap of the drum.

In reply to these threats of outrage and
assassination we say to the Times that the
Union men of the State are prepared for any
emergency. They intend to enjoy the right
of free speech and independent action, or
perish in the attempt.
It is not true that the Unionists of the
North are "blood-hounds," or that the
Unionists of this State are advocating meas
ures, or consenting to measures that would
humiliate or degrade the South. The Union
men of this State are the very best friends
the South has. They would save the South
from further impoverishment and calamity,
by promptly accepting the proposed Consti
tutional amendment. And we undertake to
say, as we will prove if necessary, that there
is not a principle in this amendment which
has not received the approval of President
The Pittsburgh. Convention
We are requested by the Chairman of the
Resident Committee for North-Carolina, ap

announce the names of the following dele
gates to that Convention from this State ;

funds sufficient for building a neat Sunday
School room, on the Church lot, and that the
work will be immediately commenced. Part
of the funds, are the proceeds of the Fair
which was gotten up by the ladies for that
purpose last Spring. The building is to be
finished by Christmas.

Believing that no Stay Law can be nasaed
embracing antecedent debts, that will not
conflict with that clause of the Constitution
of the United States, which declares that
" no State shall pass any law impairing the
obligation of contracts " I respectfully re
commend for your consideration, for the re-
uei oi aeDtors :
1. That imprisonment for debt on mesne
and final process be abolished, excent in
case of fraud ; and then as a punishment for
the crime, rather than as a means of en
forcing payment of the debt.
I. 1 hat no costs be taxed against a de
fendant, either for the officers of the Court
or for the Attorney.
d. I hat the Insolvent Debtors' Laws be so
extended as that any debtor may, by peti
tion, after due notice, summon in all of his
creditors, and upon assigning his estate and
effects for their benefit, be discharged from
all further liability, not onlv to suinsr. but to
all other credits. Being thus relieved from
the incubus resting on him, the honest and
enterprising debtor will go to work with
alacrity, and prove himself a useful member
lhe Corun-ess of the United States has au
thority under the Constitution to pass uni

proniumon on tne btates, and as Congress
has not exereised the authority delegated to
them, the States may, with great propriety,
pass such laws, and they will continue of
force until Congress adopts a general Bank
rupt Act, which would supersede all State
legislation on the subject. The General
Bankrupt Act of 1841, passed by the Con
gress of the United Statee, extended its pro
visions to antecedent debts, and its consti
tutionality was not controverted by the
Courts. No constitutional obstacle, there
fore, would preclude the General Assemblies
from incorporating the same feature in their
It is proper here to remark that if a Stay
Law could be passed which could be free
from all constitutional objection, it would
not protect debtors from suit in the Federal
Courts. A creditor residing in . the State,
who had determined to enforce the pay
ment of his debt, could readily transfer it to
a non-resident, and if the sum exceeded five
hundred dollars, such non-resident could at
onee institute suit in the United States Courts,
recover judgment, issue execution, and sell
the property, notwithstanding the existence
of a Stay Law. Such a law would not be
recognized or enforced in a Federal court."
