A Visit to- Holiday House.*
A ride of eighteen or twenty miles on the
train, brought ni- to the station where a delight
ful riding horse, or r'ather a charming black
pony, Centaur, by name, awaited me , an'd hav
ing mounted him, he bore'me off with the
greatest alacrity, and with the most charming
pae, through sunny lanes, shady dells and
breezy upl.ands, till with an exhilirating cantor I
rode up-to the font of thc mansion, and dis
mounted *ith my little cicerone, who had ridden
behind me. Fair Holiday. Bouse, the seat of un
obtrusive, but glegantlospitality, with its ramb
ling architecture,. its 'wide- and Ex,tensive gal
leries, 'arcades anA verndahs, its smooth -es
planade,.As shady bowers, its Ovenerable oaks,
its park-like grounds, its extensive mews, mea
dows and corn fieWs, i's graceful-avenue.;-and
pa-villion of symnetrical architecture, its charm
- inm.g pro;pects, stood before me; and here I was
tg spend a few days in the sweet retirement of
the country, surrounded by the genial infht*ces
of nature, in' her most varied and pleasit
aspects, and the 'society of"refined, elegant and
cultivated feiales. I v%as welcomed with that
Unmis eablee'sincerity which is a characteristic
of "the lady chatelaine," and was received by
the- four ladies o: the jnansion: as they sat at their
work in the pleasant library, where I was indti
ed.into an arm-chair, which for luxurious re
pose, might- well be callej "Sleepy Hollow." I
had been cbmmissioned by the two younger
ladies, to make certain shopping purchasi for
them, before leaving to.n, and as soon as the
sable porters had arrived w iLh the boxes, pack
ages, &c., tiere was tht exciting interest of open
i and displaying the various articles oi6my
-ing commission ;and the four ladies, each
in turn, and true to their feminine- instincts andl
tastes, expatiated'. upon ihe various merits of
brown merino, plaid pop'in, India muslin,, French
iats and Persian gaiters. I was complimented
exceedYngly upon my correct taste in the selec
tions, which, of course, increased my good humor
ana added -to- the enjoyment of the hour. After
the exhibition of these fominiire treasur6s, I Aas
told that my apartment was ready, if I wished the
- refteshment of a forenoon lsiesta or to lave my
- face and hands, oi- to change my apparel, after a
warm jsty ride on the cars. *IUpon this hint, I
retired along the verandah to the snug chamber,
which had always been appropriated to me~ on
former.v'its, where the neat, comfortable and
even luxurious arrangement ana a-ppointments
of- the room seemed even more inviting than

guest rather, proved to be a Georgia Captain,

the few days of my stay, and J set myself to

. Matiny of a Negro Regime4t.
The- Wilmington Herald, of the 25th, give
the following account of the mutiny that tool
place at Hikon near Wilmington, on Saturda3
About 4 o'clock og Saturday afternobn
some one discharg*ed a gun in the groundi o
Company D, of this regiment, and this bein
a breach of discipline, Major Wienmann, com
manding, went-into the- company personallj
to find who -vas the guilty one. After somi
ende;vor t# find the froper man, withou
avail, he called the company into line an<
told th*-em they were' there U remain unti
they volunteered to tell who firud the gun
He then went off to his quarters, leaving then
standing, but had been there but a short timi
bef4ie he was informed that the conpanj
had broken ranks and were very noisy, an(
disposed towards mutiny. He then ordere<
Company A of the regiment to fall into line
and buckBling- on his side arms, he star*et
with them, with the intention of puttiig -th
whole company engaged under arrest. Ar
riving on the front of the company street, li
noticed one man who was in the act of cap
ping- his gun, and who had-already his bayo
net on it; he started to him with the purpos
of arresting him, when the negro ran, attemp
ting to shoot.the major as he did so, am
threatening to do so at every step. The ma
jor was following him, with pistol in hand
and also attempting-to shoot, but .from somI
cause the pistol would n6t fire, fqr attepnlih
being made to dise)arge -it without effect
About this time another,, riotous fellow 'ws
noticed, among several others, and some offi
cer was-after him, togetiher 'ith the,officer o
tlige day, Lieutenant Mellen. Evitenient thei
became high with' the mutineers, and thei
fired several shots at the major, pursuing th,
riotous soldier, but fortunately' nissing him
and'also frinj indiscriminately at the Mirt,

T HE FENiANs, &c.-The 1ew York corres
pondence of a Philadelphia paper gives wha
be professes to be reliabie~vjfences of the re
ality of the FLenian movemnit:
FFacgt. That negotiations are pendini
.for the piirchase of eight ocean steamirs
each wai ranted 'to carry-1,000 men, with 'tB
certainty almost- that the purchase will -b
made before the 1st of-Oetober.
Siet 2'd'. That there -has been immens
purchases of arms from the Government b:
parties who are .supposed to be identifie<
with the Fenians, within the past_ for nidghj
and thaf propositions for further p hase
are now under consideration.
Fac t3d.-' That one of the bank- notextcom
patiies of this city are now engafed in engra

matters no-t dho are their employers, but

Club Rate.
Intending to make the 'Herald" second to no
paper in the upper country, we offer the follow
- ing inducements to getters up of clubs:
Chbs of five, for six months, $6; and one to
gettbr up of club. Clubs of ten, for six months,
$112; and one to getter up of club.
By this it will be seen that five persons club
bing together will receive five copies for six dol-.
lars instead of $7.50, and ten the still greater re
duction of having it for. one dollar, besides an ex
tra copy to the -one who with a trifling exertion
is fortunate in making up the club. Send in your
clubs early. The mails are now beginning to
run with something like the old system, and soon
there will be nothing -in.the way, when every
.body canobe a paper regularly without the old
uncertainty and annoyance.

A RIGH'r fo,IcY.-We notice, by an extract
from the Memphis Bulletin, that the military
Scom under a7t that post, General TILLSON, has
StakeVsummiary act'an in referenice to the 'e
groes of that District and court'try.
By atn o'rder recegily.issuied he,has. patrols out
who compels the negas to fulfill hi contracts. In
- this connection the BuJlletin says.:
"The freedman, as a class, seem to profer a
- life of precarilous "subsistence and idleness in
toirn, to good *ages and comiNtable homes jn
the courntry. Somogadical change is consequent
ly ne.cessary to prevent gregt sfeigand tear
ful nmortalfty among th.ese tieople in the coming
winter. They cannot, however, be justly blamed.
for their ignoranice in not seeing this it is for
-their own interest'and the interest of their chil
Sdren to ldave the city. ~General Tillson. has de
-terminedthathe will compel them-to.4eave the
city, even if it reqnires militaFy force, and 'has
alread'y conferred with the'assistant Commission
Ser of eedmnewof Kentucky and Tennesee, in
~forming them of hig intentih in this-respect. He
intends soon to send a.patrol throujih this city

thorough tour through . the'city and learn who
Hhave proper employmerit and' are able to sup
Spqrt thempselves and children, and all who have -
-not employment, er any means or prospect of
-support, .will be notifie:d that within a certain
ttime they must leave the oity and find employ-.
[ment ; at the expiration of,which tigte, if theydo
-eo omply with thi order, they wfll be arrested,
and labor furnished for them by the Bureau, and
they will be forwarded under guard to the place
assigned -to them. In this connection, we are're
. queste(tto sta.te that tWe Government efficials
, will in no cas.e furni.h subsistence to any in need,
i as they did-.whet the negroes were preventecA
i from going 'to the country by the liresence of the
- rebel armies back of Memphis ; that now there is
-no danger in going to the country ; labor-can be
-obtained with else ; none need: want e-one
s quently th-e ru!e of work or starve will be rightly
enforced". 'Some persons. who have paid negroes

. no sooner geg a few dollats ahead than they
think thaele rich, and consequently. -retire
with their fo.tunes, leaving the contr ictor, far
mer or wh2o'ever it=may be, do the best they can.

kind of legislation, we, the bone and-ainew of the

of persons, by the emancipation of slaves, Our

will follow such a state 'of affairs? Vagrancy
and idle&?s will ruin our State,-and the freedmen
wRl.commitdepredations, that will try the s6uls
'f men.. Pluto with his whole kingdom will be
turned loose upon us Christmas. You, as a Le
gislative body, should inake theft-sueli as break
ing open meat houses, core cribs, gin houses,
flour houses, or any-other kind'of houses, a hang
-ing crime. Let horse stealing be punished in
-ike manner; and let hog, sheep and cow steal
ling be punished in like man'er. for the second
offence; an# justify all persons in defending
their rights %nd prBperty. You certainly will
adop a better jpiliiia systlem than ever bere,
and immediately after Tnecting. You will per
ceive, that in our shattered, ruined and bankrupt
condition, thaggl3e only just -and equitable way
to raise internal revet.ue will be to levy &, poll
tax, of so iMuch pg6 head, -on all classes of per.
sons over a certain age,-. except,idiots, and those
aho.are crippled or disabled for life. Quit taxing
the industry of the' people-; th% should never* be
done, but rather encouraged' to the,nttermost.
Two brothers set out in different pumuits of busi
ness: one was a set and sank nearly all he had,
the other was an industrious man, and accumu
lateo property, he had a. eavy tai to pay, the
sot had no tax to pay at all. A. capifition upon.
black and white will not have to be ntach to raise
a- lae amount ; even if it Were five dollars per
head, it could be paid. Negroes coud ppy it.
If a negro esp quit his ioriiier ~master with fifty
cents, and within thiree days buy a pair of five
dolkr bcots, certainly he can raise five- dollars or
less to paf his tax. This capitation is a just an~d
eq*uitable tax, that no one can grumb)le at, I ciue.
not what his occupation is. All are on the same
footing, as the freedmai said when he. heard Gen.
Van.Wyck. Some relief should tie given to thi
farmers ; their lanids should not be saeiificed.un
der the sheriff's hatnnmer ; it is all that they hare,
and4g w' nut pay .their debts. Let them sell
portions df it as best ,they.- can and pity towards
their debts, aznd p'erhaps. bf'judicious manage
ment. tgy will become able-to pay all. :Guar
dians are heavy sufferers, a'ad their wards should
becomie c"ommnon sniferers with all; no.t b'uild up
the wards and sink into beggary and want large
families of mnilfor chiildren. There is a meediuim,
and it should be established by die ..Gtneral As
setnbiy, for all snch eases. 'You, who are4o be
our representatives, Alon't, for the sake~ of'your
suffering constituents, go to Colu-i.bia and spend
your tirne in imbibing, and Ethoking fine cigars.
Let' all trivial legislation esespe 'your mnind, 'such

will'watch you close. I bid a'ou success.
