The Feellmcln South Carolina.
A Charleston correspondent of the
Boston Dally Advertiser gives what
seems to bo an honest account of the
state of,feeling among tho people there,
which is not different from what was
reasonably to bo expected tinder the
circumstances. He says: "A gentle
man of high standing in this State, in
tho course of a long conversation, as
sured mo that he was ono of thoso who
recognized the exigencies of their situ
ation and were willing to accommodate
themselves to them. He saw clearly,
that aid from abroad was wanted to re
store the fallen fortunes of the people
in a linancial point of view. But, lie
added, South Carolina, meaning tho
South Carolinians who want money,
could not afford to appeal to the North
for financial aid without humiliating
herself. Ho did not oven know whether
financial aid, if offered by the l^orth,
could.consistently bo accepted by South
Carolina. He rather thought not, nor
did ho bolieve that a true South Caro
linian would like to sell any qf his]
property to Northern parties. State i
pride forbade it. But South Caro-j
linn would go to Europe, raise money:
there upon tho socurlry afforded by her
real estate, nnd thus work out her own
destinies. It is evident that as long as
the people of tho South cling to such
ideas, they cannot work out the regen
eration of their society which is imper
atively demanded. But I have already
seen enough to warrant me in the con
clusion that a majority of the Southern I
peoplo will permit themselves to bo
governed by that practical iiiBtinct|
which becomes very potent whon the i
iuostion of social reform Is wrapped up
in tho question of brend and butter.? |
There are some whom tho sudden down- j
fall of the rebellion soems to have bo-i
reft of ull hope and vitality, and who
look into tho future with a sort of stolid
indifference. But a large majority or
the thinking men aro actively calculat
to tho working bf tho ftee-labor ma I
ehlnery.'^nd BtiU subject t*> the Influ
ences o^old prejudices, they are certain
ly apt to fall into dangerous errors and
to indulge In dangerous experiments, I
but if tho national government, by a
their true interests."
Gens. Kinory and Torbert.
To the Editor of the N. Y. Times:
Hkadquartkiis Dist. or W. Va.,1
CUMBERLAND, Ml>., f
Wednesday, August 2, 1805. ) .
In your paper of August 1, under tho
head of Washington dispntches of July
30, your correspondent undertakes to
give an account of occurrences In the)
Shenandoah Valley, involving issues
between Brevet Maj.-Gdri. Torbert and
myself, which is so grossly at variance
with the truth, and. so unjust to iue, I
that I have not the least doubt that the
moment it comes to the notice or Gen.
Torbert, ho will correct it. Your cor
respondent, however, does.,not stop
with this account, but makes it a start- j
lug-point from which to assail my'rep-1
utation as an offlcor in tho military ser- j
vice. The specific charges he nmk<*,[
ill giving what he,is pleased to call m> I
antecedents, relato to tho battles of Wil-|
llamsburgh and Cedar Creek, two of |
the uaauy in which I have participated,,
and are foundod on an alleged fluliU^
to make a certain movement in tho for
mer, and alleged extreme slowness in
thInatregard to Williamsburg, I have
none of tho official papers at hand, but.
a reference to Gen. Hooker s report will j
show that I was tho first to come to his.
support, with tho small force of cavalry
and a battory of artillery constituting j
ray command. As to Cedar Creek, the
more the history of that battle is des
cribed, the greater will bo iuy advant
ages. The following letter from Gene
ral Sheridan, a copy of which ho was
kind enough to send me, will, I hope,
be accepted as evidence of ray conduct
at that battle:

The Weather and the Crops.
From Wefat (Chicago) Commercial Expres*.
Country and city have alike been
thrown into great anxiety and excite
ment during the last two weeks by the
wot weather, and in fact nothing ever
was or could have lx?en worse in that
way than the weather attendant or con
sequent upon the harvest of the Xortlo
west up to the middle of last week.
The telegraph has taken the matter in
hand, and furnished the daily papers
with brief reports from a large section
of the country. Before the skies clear
ed up last week, the principal grain
markets had been thrown into a panic
in regard to the poor prospect for wheat,
and prices had advanced from.the first
start about 30c. per bustle*, bu&witliin
the last few days, a more quiet and bet
ter assured feeling prevails, and prices
have already receded lualtic. from the
highest point reached.
It is not easy to generalize at once
upon such crop influences as have been
at work in the last live or six years. The
proceeding drouth caused the first few
weeks of. rain to bo regarded as the
greatest blessing, and the hopes and ex
pectations of Grain growers all over the
Northwest were greatly enlarged; but
with the long continuance of wet, ap
prehensions of harm arose, and finally
gave place to certainty. How much
liarm has been done, and over how
great tin extent of territory, is yet very
much a matter of conjecture. It is cer
tain, however, that the earlier the har
vest the greater has been the damage,
and that in sections so far North that
the harvest was only commenced last
week, no damagent all has !>een done
iby the rains, but, oil the contrary, the
Weather lias lieen exceedingly propi
tious, while the tine, cool, clear term
now apparently fully established, gives
every assurance of seen ring the remain
ing harvest in the best possible condi
tion.
It is undoubted^ true that the rains
have been heavier and more protracted
through Ohio, Southern Indiana, South
ern Illinois, Missouri and Kansas, than
anywhere North of . that stretch of
country, and as the*harvests are earlier
there, and winter wheat almost exclu
sively grown, the moderate crops cut
havo been sadly diminished and deteri
orated by the wet, the damage also ex
tending to rye and barley, possibly to
oats. In portions of Illinois and Iowa
where the rye, barley and spring wheat
harvests came, on onrl\r, as well as
wliero winter wheat forms a portion of
the crops, some damage has been, done,
especially with those farmers unable to
procure necessary help to take advan
tage of the occasional fine weather, but
in much of these last named sections,
as well as in most of Wisconsin, the
harvest has been and bids fair to l>o at
tended by good weather, while in Min
nesota the crops never promised so well
before as now.
Without the damage of bad harvest
weather, the general Wheat crop of the
Northwest would have been a moderate
one, far less than a good or even a fair
average. It has had many enemies to
encounter, the early drouth, insects,
and the later rains. All early sown
fields, whether of Winter Or Spring,
stood light on the ground; 1 Whoro. u?o
era? wHs early. it was of ir^rtu quality,
although light, but the wet after har
vest damaged it in uch. Where the crop
wns still growing during the rainy sea

beaten anu drenched in the blow,) the
heads have filled well and the grain
will be good,, though the yield per acre
willgbo. right. We do not think that
Northern Illinois, Wisconsin and Iowa
liavo had so light a Wheat yield in ten
years act now, excepting, of course, the
almost total failure of the crop last
year. Oats are good everywhere.- Corn
is now doing well, though it has suiler
ed some on low and level lauds.
A Woman on 44 Waterfalls.*'
Mrs. Li. Maria Childs writes a letter
to the New York Independent, in the
course of which she uses the following
lauguage in regard to the latest fashions
in hair:
Thinking of the great and blessed
work done during these last four years
by women in the Sanitary Commis
sions, the. hospitals, and the school
houses for the emancipated, I seemed
to see a bright light dawning 011 our
future career. But the vision receded
in the distance, when I looked from my
window and saw a bevy of damsels
sailing by, with hen-coops in ?lieir
skirts, and upon their heads a rimless
pan of straw with a feather in it?ut
terly useless for defense against wind
or sun.
To make this unbecoming head-gear
still more ungraceful, there descends
from it something called by the tlow
ing name of waterfall, but which in
fact looks more like a cabbage in a not,
tricked out with beads and wampum.
If I had met them in Western forests, I
should have taken them for Ojibbeway
squaws, but their dress was a la mode
Parixiennc. This tyranny of France is,;
1 suppose, one of the things that must
be endured, betrause it caunot In? help
ed, till our brains are bettor developed.
In the process of time, I trust the Kin
press Kugenie will sleep with her illus
trious ancestors, and that no other fan
tastic queen of fashion will come after
her, to lead the civilized world such a
fool's dance. What a set of monkeys
wo are, in feathers and furbelows,
dancing to tli^tuue of that imperial
show-woman!
Facet I ir.
An lioiiest German in Philadelphia,
listening to an account of a married
woman's elopement with 44 another
man," the other day, got greatly excited
over it; and spluttered Torth with the
greatest vehemence:* "If mine vife runs
away mit anoder man's vife, I will
shake him out of her own precches, if
she be mine own fader, mine Got!"
A teacher in a contraband school
, asked a young darkey what a certain
letter of the alphabet was. The darkey
looked at it earnestly for a short time,
and said: "I know oat well enough by
sight, but am bressed if I can call it by
namo." lie was told ho could take a
back seat.
8outhey? in his "Oinniana," relates
the following:44 When I was last at Lis
bon a nun made an escape from a nun
nery. The first thing for which she
enquired when she reached the house
where she. was to bo secreted, was a
lookiug-glnss. She entered the con
vent when ojily five years old, and from
that time had never seen her own face.
A little two-year old girl fell the other
day, and striking her head, cried at tLe
top .of her voice. In .the midst of her
tears she chanced to see from the win
dow a poor old horse with drooping,
head. Instantly checking 1
