Letter from Satb Caroltaab
Charleston, Cfct. 13, 1S73.
Mr. Editor t We are ooee more
(r jading tbe "sacred aoil" of the suncy
South. Our health and the health of
the city ia unusually food. They have
bad a very bot summer, bat no serious
epidemic, so common in this part of
tbe country. At is usual in tbe bot
season, the city has been unusually dnll
in every kind of business except poli
tics. The struggle for Mayor and Al
derman bas been terrific, but rnded in
the utter route of tbe - unterrified."
Mayor tt'agener, of Battery Wagenet
fame "takes bis bat and lebes berry
sudden," and Mr. Cunningham takes
bis place. In conversation witb a
Southern man yesterday, I learned tbat
SI r. C.'s great crime was that of being
a Northern man who had invested eon-
siderable money in Charleston, and bad j
carried on the honorable (to the South)
business of bntcberine. but withal a
very honest man. It is really wonder
ful, witb the horrible corruptions and
divisions in political circles here, that
even such a good man as Mr. Cunning
ham could be elected. I am sure our
municipal affairs cannot be made much ;
worse. Now that our city bas ouce j
more settled down to its cotton snd I

ern Peter way arise, slay and eat.
The weather here is sslubrious. Tbe
sun shines brightly roses still bloom
the trees have no scar and yellow
leaf all things are fresh and balmy.
WLit a pleasant climate the South bas!
No doubt you are beginning to gather
around your warm stoves iu the North :
we are glad to ra-se our windows to
catch a balmy breeze.-
Tae city is beginning (o assume a
busy aspect. Citizens are returning
and, King Cotton is making bis anuual
visit, aud busiuess is reviving. Charles
ton is a dull place in summer, but quite
throng in winter.
Southerners are qnite glad to see any
one, even a Yankee, who has money to
spend. What would become of the
South were it not for Northern money
and ingenuity aiic? common sense ! This
deceptive' people will rescb out oue
baud for our money, while with tbe
other they slap u in fbe face. I know
some churches in this city which bave
agents in tbe North begging money, and
are at tbe same time in a general way
anathematizing tbe very ones who give
tbeui money. A member of one of
these churches said to a friend of mine
not long since, " Tbe Yankees are able
to be bled, are willing to be bled, and
we are going to bleed them just as long
as tbey will stand it I" My honest
conviction is, that the only worthy ones
in tbis country to receive Northern
help arc. the colored people, who have
with aching beads and bleeding backs,
made this country wbat it is. lint ala,
for human depravity ; tbey who would
do nothing for our country but tear it
to pieces, will now be petted anj pitied
and helped, wbilo these poor black peo
ple who bave been crushed and almost
damned sonl and body, but wbo bave
ever stood true to the old flig, and
would bave gone down with her, bad

Ileal ly uow, Mr. Editor, can you tell
me why it was that yoa might kill a
colored person before be would turn
traitor and desert the old flag ? I tell
you, sir, I know stories of some of my
own church people during the war, tbe
relation of which would be as interest

and suffered the pangs of hunger and
thirst bow some were lodged in jail
for weeks without food or raiment, and
many of them lashed until tbe blood
stained tbe ground at their feet and
still tbey would not give up the old
flag. I am told that four colored men,
during the war, boldly asserted Union
sentiajeuts on the streets of (.'barks
ton. They were seized, of course, and
lied, and then tbat human devil, tbe
"whipper," eommenced bis hellish work.
At the end of twenty lashes the ques
tion was put M Do yon repent and
turn !" Tbe answer came from between
set teeth, "No." " Give tbem twenty
more," was tbe command. At the end
of the next twenty, the muscles of one
relaxed and be fell. "Will you repent
and turn !'' was the question. " Kill
me ! kill me !" was the feeble response
"thank God, I died for my country !"
Suffice it to say they all were martyred.
That night, as their colored friends laid
tbe rour side by side in an otscure cor-
ner of a field in Uio outskirts of the
city, twenty brave stalwart men knelt I
aiound tboee graves, and with faces
turned opward to tbe s'ars, and wilh
bands uplifted to Alniightv God, swore
that they would meet a similar death
rather than forsake tbe dear old flag.
And now, Mr. Editor, I ask in all can
dor, should the country forget these
poor people wbo were so tiue to her in
ber bour of peril !

Among the consequence of the financial
crash in Wall street is said to be the wth
drawal of many persons well known by
their long-continued presence there. The
necessity of tbe occasion has forced them
to pursuits other than specula.lons.
A colony of Kussiana mechanics, farm
ers, millwrights, iic. have purch.ised sev

A polite yonng Bos tonian, while in chn rcb

to the brttont of a pew to pick up a parasol
which a fair neighbor had jnst dropjvd. He
grabbed the parasol, ad at the same mo

The newsboys on Wall street are ncarly
as sharp as the brokers. They hare once or
twice, during tbe crisis, almost raised a
financial panic on their own account. On
Black Friday No. 2 one keen chap, whose
papers announced the snspension of the
First National Bank rf Washington, drops
ped the "Washington" p:rt of the news,
andjeft it to be interred that it was the
First National Bank of New York. His
papers went off like hot cakes. Observing
this, the other boys on Thursday tried the
same game when the First National Bank
of Memphis failei!, and produced snch a
horror among the business men that the
police were called upon to interfere, and
did arrest oo or two of the knowing gana
ins. Iu a dozen years these yonng ones
wi!l have experienced a sort of transmigra
tion from honest and respected oewsdual-
crs into sanguinary bulls and bears.
A useful hint to msny yonng men may be
derived from this little story which the
Springfield (Mass) I'aioa prints: "Not
long ago a young man of this city bad a
