"8. Axe the people, regardless of

aud property in the State so far
as your observation extends?"
They are. 1 have known of no one
Iwing maltreated because ol his politi
cal opinions, for the lant two or three
years. The people of the State, so tar
as I havf observed, are ijuiet and law
aoidiug; a much so at present, if not
more so, than they were before the
war. A manifest spirit of improve
ment generally prevails. They are at
work in earnest, striving to repair the
os iM-caioned by the war; and they
are rapidly recovering ironi them. A
tjreater spirit uf industry will scarcely
le found anywhere. They most ot all
want peace, so they may enjoy the
Iruits oi their labur. That a state ol
lawlessness exists in this portion of
CfcaStmte is whotly untrue, aud I be
lieve it equally untrue as to the entire
State.
