A Jaunt Into the Country.
BY Q. R.
It was a beautiftil October morning as I
sauntered along the road to High Point with
little Flibbertigibbet av my guide, cicerone,
or companion whichever the reader may please
to call him, but partaking of the capacity of
all and yet none, fo- h stopped behind to see
a man who was coming across the.fields, and
to talk with some school chaps whom we
met, and I walked alone, for I knew the way,
and the road was plain and direct, so he was
neither companion, guide nor cicerone, except
in name, but he overtook me just as I was
coming in sight of the House. It loomed up
suddenly at the end of the lane in all its soli
tary grandeur,just asin the old time as though
it had been only yesterday I had seen it last.
The red brick house stood there in the au
tumn sunshine solitary and alone apparently,
for neither as we approached nor as we passed
did we see a single individual, human or ani
mal, though the house is inhabited I believe.
Very different was the aspect of the place
twenty-four years ago when I first saw it;
for then therz tws all the interest, bustle and
excitement of a wedding. I arrived with a
small party of ladies in a winter Lftr-rnoon;
the sky was overcast and a fine rain had set
in, but thip only enhanced the cheerful and
inviting aspect of the interior of tie mans'on,
where fires were burning in every room, and
subdued excitement was visible in the young
er members of the family in anticipation of
the first wedding of the family, when the eld
ast sister was to cast her lot with another.
she w:ho had been like a mother to them since
the death oftheir real moth-. The drawing
room was sumptuously ar.d luxuriously fur
iished, and the whole interior of the house
bore evidence of affluence, a degree of luxury
quite unusual in so remote a country place.
rhe sleeping apartments exhibited this feature
is Vvell as the drawing-room, th6 state bed
room-especially where there was a large and
magnificent, pavi Ilion-like structure of ma
hoganv with square columns and heavy cor
nice, to which there was a flight of mahogany
steps inlaid with carpeting to enable the oc
:upant to ascend the couch, which when he
ad acconplished he seemed-to be lost in his
vast temporary domain. The rest of the fur
rniture c-reF;onded in style and naignificence
o this. ':& the abovu-menticned festive oc
:asion the house and place departed very con
;iderably from its accustomed quiet; ard the
mnlivening strains of the violin with the nim
ile capering of the dancer's feet in the grace
'ul saravanti imparted an air of gayety and
:heerfulness bedoming the occasion.
The bride looked serene but thoughtful in
rer simple, but rich and elegant bridal attire,
i white silk of heavy fabric, and neat, elegant
pattern, and with a sprig of mistletoe in her
hair whose white glassy berries locked like
pearls set with emeralds. There was a fre.lh
ness and simplicity of character added to un
usual intelligence and refinement in all the
mewh)ers of this family. and a delicacy of phuy
sical organiiza ion which addeld to the above
mentioned traits, 'endered them unusually in
teresting as a family as well as individuals.
Dne or two of the daughters possessed a very
rare dlegree of beauty in the perfect contour
f face and form. Trhe brothers excelled in
manly sports especially in horsemanship and
appeared to advantage in the saddle. The sec
nd as well as the elder possessed a fine mind
with unimpeachable moral principles, as well as
feelings and affections cast in the finest mould
whi. dTuttless pioved to him a safeguard
gainst temptation and' immorality. H-e also
possessed a fund of dry humour and a smooth
ness of disposition and temper which always
rendered him athiable and agreeable in the
domestic circle. The father of this family
who within a year past has gone "to that
bou-ne from whence nio traveller returns,"
posessed the most amiable simplicity of char
cter, and yet possessed the wisdom of the
serpent with the harmlessness of the dove.
His example might shame many professing
Christians, for though he did ::ot profess huoli
ness he was as harmless in word and deed as
the most circumsnect Christian. He was re
markably discreet in conversation, anud very
considerate of the claims and feelings of others,
being always ready to deny himself for the
gratification of others, even those whlo should
have given way to him from deference to has
super ior age. The absence of censoriousness
was a distinguishing trait in his ch-iracter and
he practised the golden rule with the greatest
fidelity. The maxim 'judge not" found in
him a living cexmplification. It was very
soothing to a sensitive mind to associate with
this kindly old gentleman who never gave ut
terance to anything wounding or irritating,
or who at least did not say or do anything tc
leave a rankling wound behind. It was only
to be regretted. that such an amiable charac
ter and life should not have been found on the
side of religion and in the cause of professing
Christianity, and that in theory -he was skep
tical. He was descended from the Huguenots
and though personally he gave clear indica
tions of his descent from that inercurial, shoul
der-shrugging nation, yet there was a depar
ture from the evangelical principles of that
sect of Protestant French who took refuge in
America from religious persecutions. Hei
loved however a peaceful life in comparative
retirement, fulfilling the duties of his sphere
ini the relations of a most indulgent and affes
una norcnt~ a maa~ eclki. r,nd ngrceable
nLeighor, as well as social fiend and compan
ion, and the most humane and considerate of
masters. le passed away from life as peace
fully as he lived, at a very advanced age, not
without hope to his friends that a soul so
blaheless here, should enjoy felicity in that
spirit-land to which he had taken his depar
tur6. He had been singularly happy in his
marriage in uniting his fate Wi'th alady whose
virtues were unsurpasse7d as wife, mother and
mistress. She had a iwarm, affectionate heart
which Was "open as day to melting charity,"
who visited the poor, the sick and the afvict
ed, warmed, fed and clothed them, and gave
them a hospitable welcome to her doors. Her
warm-heartedness was one of her most distin
guishing traits, but in all those qualities which
go to make up the character of a lady she was
Dre-eminent. Such were the thoughts which
crowded upon my mind at I walked past IHigh
Point and recalled its forier possessors to
mind, with the generation which succeeded
them, with the latter of whom as mny cotem
poraries I have been intimately associated in
our domestic history and connection. I have
amused myself and occupied a few otherwise
dull and unemployed hours in writing these
sketches or reminiscences and they have at
least done that much, whether I havd suc
ceeded in interesting others or not, and With
this apology take leave of the reader.
GoT. Marvin to the Colored People of
Gov. Mariin recently addressed a large
crowd of negroes at Marianna, Fla. le told
them that they had fought no battles; that
the b!cod of no man was on their handst that
it had been a white man's war; that it had
unintentionally resulted in the abolition of
slavery, and that nobody-but God was to be
thanked fOr it.
lie further said
If youask me the question, whcher the
n hite men of the North or the men of the
South is your friend, I will answer you by
saying that I hope and believe both of therm
are ; but if it comes to a question of certainty
as to whih of the two is your better friend,
I shall answer plainly and tell you, the white
man of the South. I was born in the North,
raised and educated there, but I have spent
-the last thirty years of my life in the South,
and I'consider myself capable of judging be
tween the ttwo people, particularly in refer
ence to you-efves. I 'inow the Northern
man or Yankee, as you ca!l him, from the
crown of his hat to the sole of his foot, and-I
te!l vou to-dav as vour frien(l, that the South
ern white men, with whoim you were raised,
and who is acdluainte.l with yoir habits ndni
customs, is the best 1riend you have got.
Now, after you shall have found your free
dom, and, driven by stern necessity to do
something for yourselves, the question is,
iha,isthe best for you to do? My advice
is to remain on theplantation where you have
been i-ccustomed to work, wqit yoL forrn'er
owners, if they will make a contraEt with you.I
Make the best contract you can with -them.
and show themi that you are willing to work
better, now that you are compensated for
your work, than you ever have done before.
13e faithful, be honest, be interested in the af
fairs of thd~ plantation ; see that the mules
are well fed, that the hogs get good attention,
and that the things entrusted to you be not
If you wish to be esteemed as ladies and
entlemen, you must conduct yourselves ac
co ringly. Call your 01(d master, master, and
y our old wistress, mistress. It is right you
should ;it is proper, it is polite, You do not
meaxn by calling them so that you belong to
the bn ut that you wish to he respectfdil and
polite, and to give no cause i>r offence, but
rather desire to please. I don't say that you
m e7It call them master or mistress; hut I say
it is civil and polite to do it, and you must,
therefore, do it. I have known many white
servants, and there are thousands in the
Nor th, where I was raised, and it is so is En
gland, too, who call those who employ them,
master and mistress. It is a term of respect
and deference, and they call them thus be
cause this is so. There they, as Isaid before,
are white servants, and they till the land,
feed the stock, and do other work that is done
here, and they are respected, and all of them
find employment, as you may do if you con
duct yourselves properly.
But you must not think, because you are
as free as the wvhite people, that you are their
equal, because you are not. You will have to
be able to write a book, build a railroad, a
steam engine, a steamboat, and thousands of
other things you know nothing of. They
are far ahead of you, and it is foolish to think
they are not superir to you and will ever be;
lt they will help you rise if you try to raise
yourselves, and youL munst try, and make fast
fiends of them, and not, by bad behavior to
wards them, make them hate you.
The President will ntot give you one foot of
an,nor a ue nor ho, nor cow, nor even
a knife and fork or spoon. [A voic-"Dar !
old man, hear dat ? Dat's a had egg! Dat~
chicken won't hatch no how !") IIe has giv
en vou your freedom, a:id that is every thing
he intends to give you, and that is enough ;~
and some of t ou will und(erstand mec when I
tell you why. Before thie war, each and~ of
you was worth in dlollars and tents to your
owners eight hundred or- a thousand or fifteen
hundr'ed dollars; worth inore than fifty acres
or eighty acres of land, and a mule thrown in.
Well, the President has, in giving you~ y.ur
rt donm, taken so many dollars and cents
from your old masters; and he thinks, as I
do, they have lost enough,.and you by it have
had enough given you. If he were to give
you more, it would prove a curse to you.
The Governor concluded as follows :"I
believe I have cover-ed the whole ground and
said all that is necessary. If, however, I have
left anything out, let me know what it is.
Come up! you have a right to ask; so speak
out! [Hre a few unimportant questions
weeaked, which were satisfactorily an
swered.] Now, before I conclude, I wish to
ask you,aryosaied?Aryou?[W
Iare,''by all.] Will you promise mec to do the
best you can, be kin 3.ly disposed to all to be
ood men and women ? ['We wvill.'] God~
help yoti do it."
-To tell lies befor-e you get uap in the mor

Some of the noblest spirits of the South
the men who gava tone, vigor and character
to her society-the soul of her best and great
enterprises-nay, the very promptest of her
public thought, are,. we understand, prepa
ring to leave the country, and go into volun
tary exile. This is one of the saddest results
now following in the train of the just com
pleted revolution.
In a recent edit6rial we Rdverted to the
urgent duty to be henceforth perfi-med by
every Southern man in choosing an' sul
porting as his representutives in the councils
of State and natioi, only those men who hate
been most closeiy Identified with the velfire
of his people. Bt if there is a time in all ti
catalogue of editorial discussion upon i
we would speak and pray unceasingly, that
subject is the one enbraced in the opening
paragraph of this article. Tnere is sonething
terrible t6uching in the 'd6!,ht that a prond
lover of this country should have become 'o
depressed by hi- disappointment, so utterly
cast down by his misfortunes, that tather than
remain and dare fate to do her worst ; rather
than stay among the green fields and shady
grovcs of his home where he played as a boy
and labored as a man, and where love has hal
lowed every association of his life; rather than
still linger and by strong ende:vor stri:e to
recruit the exhausted energiesof his people,
he should, in an hour oF reckless impulse, ex
patriate himself from his mother land, and
prepare to live thereafter a life without an
object-a "man without a country." Such
an one is little better than a deserter from
his cause. For if there ever was a time -hen
a Southern man ought to be at home, at %.ork,
watching the interests of his people, contrib
uting to the pulsations of the great iopular
heart, earnest, ardent, confident, true and
firm, that time is now. One ballot is now
worth a score of bullets a little while ago.
One strong word that carries with it a flow of
influence nw. is worth the charge of it brig
ade. Moral power is in demand. Thoughts
arV weapons. Time holds the scale of vic
tory ; and if the people of the South w!ll but
remain true to themselves, stay at home,
fight what remains of this contest at the bal
lot box, co-operate as conserVtives with the
conservatiVes of the North, stand shoulder to
shoulder, unabashed, and persistent in the as
sertion of right-right not because it is right,
but as a matter of expediency-we pledge the
hon(r of the nation that less than four years
will witness a change in the political elements
of the land even more startling than hat
which, four years ago, plunged the country into
fratricidal war-that wlil ieflect the brighest
halo upon them, their generation and their
poste-ity. We repeat therefore, to the an
ticipative exile--Don't go. Stay where you
are. The true men of the North ask it. Your
own unhappv Sou'h de-rands it. Open some
avenue of labor ; get into it ; dig, delve, toil;
let the manly sweat flow for a time while you
ehrn your own and your children's daily
bread; and when the proper time comes you
shall help to obtain and thereafter enioy all
the rights and privileges of a free American
New York News.
AicPhet'son, the Clerk of the House of Re
presentatives, has now distinctly announced
his purpose not to enter upon the roll the
nam:e.of any n:en,ber.frem any of the Stat-.
lately "i'f rebellion," un til the house or poni

tions are clear, and we fear, unmistakabfe;
that the House will sustain the clet k, not
only in denying our Representatives any
voice in their organization, but in excluding1
them fl-om the floor of Congress during, the
entire session, and as much lon-ger as they~
The propriety of such a policy. bo0th as re
gards right and expediency, has already been
thoroughly nfrgued and discussed ; any fur
ther discussion of it now would be tiresome
and vain. We merely wish to warn our peo
ple. to nerve themselves for tnre cruel trials
of their fortitude than they have yet endured;
to school themselves in the exercise of pa
tience and discretion. They will have need of
both. If there are any among us whno do pot
appreciate the diffichlties !n the face of which
the~ Pr esident inaugurated, and has partially
developed his wise and patriotic policy,. they
*ill have their eyes opened when they get
their first view of Congress. We do nobt prom
ise that they will see a cloven foot, or a b,ar
bed tail, or~will smell birimstone; but they
will see every thing eTses .
All that we can db is to iook on. We arc
powerless, except to injure ourselves.
This we can do in almost any way in which
we choose to set about it. Indeed so nurrper
ous are the ways andl mens on hand, thant
about the only waty in which we can be se
cured against harming ourselves is to remain
entirely passive. We ar-e certainly hopeless.
Our pe-ople need not-stand idle, however, while
awaiting the issue of events they cannot con
trol. It becomes them to empicy their ener
gies in the only direction in which they can
be made available-towards the dlevoptmnent
and organmzation of our imumense industrial

Wade Hampton.
We find an article in the Yew York Newsi
of the 31st ult., on the reported election of
Gen. Wade Hampton as Governor of this
State, from which we extract the.following
tribute to this gentleman's gallantiy in the
past, and to his sifterity and loyalty to the
Government and to the:restoration *policy of
President Johnson at the present time:
"For- tate officers, the Soutir, ought. not,
for one niornent, to listen to "policy." As a
vrc in, ev%erv Siate of this Union must bi
isIuI,ess of her own affairs. And South ar
)1hna like .Iississippi, does .herself honor in.
asserting her truth by placing at the head of
r civil -overnment of her most distinguish
cons, even though he has been eminent as
' whA' soldier. A private citizen of her
fn s of prosperity, General Wade Hampton
%1ns :m ) armnnent to the society of South Car
olina. W ithin all her borders, 'his name has
been know n for any years as a synonym of
truth.and honor. The political convictions
V.hich he he1d in private having been subjec
ted to an arbit raiment which demanded his
life as a test of their sincerity lie accepted the
demand sword in hand ; and, call himu what
radicalisni will, a rebel, a traitor, a villian, the
'great majority of mankind will hold him made
of the stuff ,that constitutes patriots. And
his faith to his conviction is proof as true as
Holy Writ of his faith to his solemn oath.
The allegiance which he has shown to his
own conscience at the risk cf quiet, property,
life, the world will accept as undeniable evi
dence of his truth of the allegiance which he
st-i4.s ready to. pjedge to the policy of restor
ation. Unsanctifed formally he may be by
the express granting of Presidential 'pardon;'
but the proof which he has-put in before ill
men of his profound good faith, declares that
Wade Hampton's acquiescence. in the surren
der of the Confederate armics is a demonstra
tion of his fealty to the Union beyond all sup
position of official, formulary. - Her foremost
citizen, the flower of her chivairy, the savior
of her honor, a man infinitely truer than some
of the mouthing 'loyalists' to the' Union to
which he has submitted, South Carolina, has
done herself high credit by placing in the
highest position within her borders her favor
ite son-Wade Ilanipton.".
ThE RIGHT SPIRIT.-Mr. William Crutch
field, bold, thorough-going Union man of East
Tennessee, who was arrested and imprisoned
by the agents of the Confederate Government
for his Unionism, makes an appeal to the Un
ion men of Tennessee, through the Chatta
noogn Gazette, not to prosecute the rebel s6l
diers who have returned to their homes under
a pledge of safety hbd yrotection, upon re
turning to their allegiance and loyalty to the
country.-Louistille Journal.
He says to his compatriots "Be just, be

cast upon tile breakers.
Will you not learn wisdom from the errds
of the past ? Will you-force these.ien who,
in good faith, have said down their arms, be
lieving in anod eying fully uIpon: ;he .gener

For s1Siim, rny .Iia-c3untrymen ; pause,

Now that the rebielllon has been crushed,
and yodir erring :brethren having failed, sub
mitting to terms as laid down b~ our Govern
ment, do not throw imnpedinients -in the way,
but learn to forget and forgive. Reach forth
the right hand of fellowship ; bid your erring
brethren return; convince them that there is
room for tas al ; that they were in error when
telling us that this State could only hold one
side ; convince them that you are for the Un
ion, and the Co6n.titutlion, andihe law. Let
the past be f'orgivven ; let, us li'e for the fu

Let the roze again blomi, the virte and fig

Thatih the true kind of paVr tism. The

I NTE REsTING . FInoM WAsuNGToN.-"-We get
the fillowing items from the Washington cor
respondence of the "Baltimore Sun":
A proclamation may shortly be' expected
frm tihe President declar-in r the insurrection
or rebellion in the South to be at an end,
I can say that the President endorses the
statement of Governor Perry of South Caroli
nta concrnVfing his (the President's) views as
to the ldnnsiu of Smn:herr reprcsentatives,
to Conzress. The Pre.sider.t holds th:it the
mass of tLnt enn2 t!!ei part in the organiza

argumet.t in: this behluf, which he fully agrees
It is thc,ng t byV somei that the victory of
the rerlians la New Yor4: and New Jersey
will s. ch.e them: that they will rudely re

in C'onpress. But the better opinion: is that

is found necessar'y. Those who are opposing
this feature of his poliey wil never be warm~
in their support of hiin hereafter7 "IIe may
overlook or disregard matters that be con
cei'es to be of secondary importance to the
great purpose of having the Southern people
again represented in Congre.w, but for the lat

and tenacious to the last of effecting it.
