:4n all barids we found' eignees of distinct in
on account of color, except in a freedman's
,colony, where the blacks received the whites
on.an equal footing with the nselves. 'Ve

ler's nime was only mentioned in contemptti
ous connect6n with silver spoons, and occa
sionally a little plated ware, and he himself
see-ned to be better known as the Bottle Imp
of Bermuda Hundred, than in -a.)y other way.
.. "Our next visit was to Atlanta, Georgia.
Here we had a long const;ltation with a Trea
sury Agent, wb.o bad had ample means of in
frma4op 4n the subject of Georgia loyalty.
He gave his opinion that to admit the south
ern States to representation at this time would
be highly injudicious. He did not believe
there was a white native in the State - loyal
enough to take his place, and asserted that to
remove him and others similarly situated,
would be not only dangerous to the welfare of
the country, but would be also the height of
ingratitude to men ibo had risked character
and reputation for the patriotic cause of cot
ton and ten or twelve thousand a year. Your
committee concurred entirely in his opinion.
"While in Atlanta your committee beard
many expressions of sentiments which go to
show bow far Gen. Gran t is mistaken in what
he says in his report. On one occasion es
pocially we heard what conv,nced us that the
lava of secession still burned in the southern
bosom. The case was that of a young gentle
man from Massachusetts, of poor but honest
parents, who bad cone to 'the South in the
tapacity of a freedman's school-teacher. He
had casually made the acquaintance of a south
ern lady of two score and ten, whose husband
had fallen under the southern flag, leaving her
a widow of handsQme estate. The young gen
ileman, desirous of matrimony, and planta
tions, pressed his suit, and was progressing,
as he thought, most favor bly, when on6*eve
ning the widow told him at a tea-party,.in the
presence of a large number of pedple, .''that
she'd rather be buried alive than marry a
Yapkee." The patriot school-teacher no lon
ger plied the rod of chastisemeni Qver refrac
tory reeduen. The star of -is ji.pe has
gone down, and he has gone back to Volton,
a'wreck of his former self.
Your committee went to Montg&nery, Ala
bama, where, as at Richind, the colored citi
zens flocked to meet us, and yied with each
other for the carrying of our baggage. We
paid them fifty cents a carpet sack from 'he
depot, and they were enthusiastic in their de
m9ntrations of loyalty, in receiving the cur
I rency fron us. !n this city evidences of dis
loyaity ipeet pspn every hand. A Vermont
mis.ionary had been insulted a feT,das. be
fre our arrival for attempting to introdnce
ljohn Brown's Body,' and 'We'll bang Jeff
Davis on a Sour Apple. Tree,' as Sabbath
school hymns. A hop had just taken place
at the leading botel, to which whites only were
invted, and from which the freedawn *ere
excluded or account of color. The conse
quence was an indignation -ieeting of the
freedmen, at which equal rights were deman
'I aed. A 'repedition of balls and hopeg .eoiu
sively white in their character, w-Mli lead to
Jamaica insurrections and Haytien rebellions
magni6ed a thousand times in their dreadful
results. At Montgomei-y, as at Atlanta we
mct a Treasury Agent, *ho was opposed to
immediate re-umon,- and warmly in favor of a
territokial conlition. for the Sonthern States.
He mentioned incidentally that he had a son
in-law in New Hampshire who would make
I an excellent Provisional Governor, and a cou
smn who' would do for'a territorial delegate to
Congress. A bove all things, he hoped Conr
gressi would nqt isten to the hypocritical
eties of Alabania layilty. He assured us that
tbere wasp no loyalty in the State, except in
his'ffce, and s'aid it would be base ijusgie
to supersede.hinm-till be had fluished the ma
king of $10(0,000.
IWe .oge~t proceeded to Charleston, Snuth
Carolina. .Here we had a long mntervilew with
a northern.gentlemfan whom we know to be
in every way reliable. He had responded to
hiss country's call, in the: early: days of the
war, with a-suttler wagon full of Yankee no
tions, and .been unvarying in his devotion
t:thecuse ever smhce, ..ecept- at Lntervals
wvhen Gee. Grant had order-ed suffers to the
rear. SiLde thie cessation of armed hostility
he had been down Soutli to see what couid
be don~e in4hbe wr.y of' buying soutitern lan'ds.
Hehaifound the people of South Carolina so
rebellious at the heart as to refuse to sell their
Iplantations for twenty cents an acre in Fed
erar curren . W1e convinced us that an armed

It is. propert4 statethat the artielesthus scru
Itinized were hanging on a line to dry and had
we' ladies in them.
"Your Com1itee next visited. Savannah,
whre thef founa~ disloyaltf' ma'nifesting it
elf unmistakably on all sides. We met an
agent of the.Freednmen's Bureau, who gave it
as his opinion that, the war was only half over,
and that unless the powers of the .Bureau
were enlarged so as to give him controll of
all the cotton exportedt from Savannah, the
glorious emblem of our national liberty would
nolatnolested very long. He had not
been invited to a single tea party, thouigh lie
had lived in Savannah for a year, while rc
turned Confederates .were cordially greeted
Sby brothers, sisters, mothers and swreethearts.
le himself had been on.intimate terms with
a young lada represented many thous
and bales of cotton, but of late a one-armed
rebel had come home,. and he of the F. B. had
been discarded in favor of him who had raised
his parricidal hand'against 'the old flag. -Here
was preferment for services rendered to the
rebel cause, and there are many such cases
which your committee regret to find Gen.
Grant has onmitte,d en.tirely.
!Your committee do not deem it necessary
to -gointo further.particulars to show tbattthe
spirit which animated the. rebellion still ex
ists in the South, and that the time /has .not
yetcome for the readmission of the Southern

A simple invention was exhibited at the
lateirm ngham cattleshow for makimg but

"I say, I say, General Jackson, for fear you
should think I have some axe to grind, be
cause I try so hard to keep you at my poor
house all night, I will agree to keep you free
of expense!" expostulated the landlord of the
only inn in the village of Jefferson, Ashe Co.,
North Carolina, to General Jackson, late one
evening in the autumn of 18-, as he entered
his carriage to pursue his journey toward
Tennessee. "The Blue Ridge is infested with
banditti, and! you will certainly be robbed,
and possibly murdered before morning. I
beseech you stay I"
"You are very kind sir, and I thank you,
replied the General, "but I shall proceed, and
try d; r'ech the Tennessee lineat all events.
I have no fears of being molested. Drive on,
Ned, briskly. Adieu, gentlemen, all I" and
the old hero drov'e'dfWat a rapid pace.
"lilloa, there, y'oungster !" cried the land
lord, to a slim, weary, flaxen-headed strip
ling, standing in the motley crowd in front of
the tavern, "if you are going to Tennessee,
you had better jump up behind and go alo&?g
with be General; it's as che'ap as walk.ng.
"Sure enough, I reckon I'd better, and
thank you," replied the young man, jumping
up behind the coach as it drove off.. -
They rode on quietly for s'OMe hours, until
they began to ascend the mountain, when the
General hearing a slight dough behind, called
out sterinly : "Who's that ?"
"It's me; sir,- Andrew Johnson. I am a
traveller on my way to Tennessee, and I
though.t I might get a lift on your carriage,
sir. I beg your pardon; sii'
"You are quite. welcome, sir, to my car
riage. Come forward, and take a seat with
'.Thank, you, sir; bit. as the mountain is
very sedP 4e.re, I'll jump off and walk up."
He walked forikrd 4 the mountai' side,
in advance of the carriage, but had not gone
far.before he saw a man ahead of him,'as
cending the mountain ; he appeared to be in
toxicated.' He lurched this and that way,
staggering backward and forward; now his
knees would double up, and be would miss a
step, as if the eartti .had .uddenly'va'thed
before him , then he Wbuld cross his legs, and
a l'urbe'WoPld snd him diagonally across the
road. He'stop'ed and l raced himself up, so
as nearly to fall backward, and then drifted
helplessly along. Piesently he turned an
angle in the road'and was out of sight.
.''That fellow is beastly drunk," remarked
"Drunk! Not much, sir," laughed the
young man. "He's no more drunk than I
am. He's playing 'possum. and means mis
chief. Look there! he"i lying in the road."
As they drove up, he raised himself l.,ae
krid: ailed them.: "Hic. eh-I say,geile
men, .an't you give a man a lift.? 1-1-hic!
can't walk; I'm loaded too heavily .with
d-d mean whiskey."
"Then 'st*y'Oer.e y.n dre a.nd gqt.r.id of
it," sternly repled the General."
"The devil 1" exclaiuedtlie man, springing
to his feet with the agility of a cat. He gave
a keen whistle, and planted himself in front
of the coach. Tbree men sprung out. from
the bushes and made a rush for the carri4ge.
Quick .s thought the General sprang upon
one of thei, aii thy rolled der in the road
together. A - dull, crashing sound was next
heard over the road, and a second one rolled
over in the du.st, propeHed - by- the loaded
whip in the powerful - hands of the driver.
The yo-tng.man, by a timely shot fired and
brought down a- third, and then sprang to
the assistance of the General, who still fought
maufully.wjth the herculean, antagonist,while
the driver engaged the remaining robber. -
"Stand back ! stand ,back !" cried the Gen
eral -to the-young man ; "we are man to man,

On the surface of two square miles, It was

grain which had covered the field of battle.
was reduced to litter and beaten into the
earth, and the surface, trodden down by the
cavalry, and furrowed deeply by the cannon
wheels, strewed with many a relic of the fight.
Helmets and cuirasses,- shattered firearnis
and broken swords ; all the variety of millita
ry ornaments, lance, caps and 'Highland bon
nets'; uniforms of every color, piumes and
penonfr; musical instruments, the aparatus of
artillery, drums, bugles ; but why dwell on
the harrowing picture of a foughten field ?
each and every ruinous display bore tnute
testimony to the misery of 'sah a battle.
Could the melancholy appearance of this
scene of death be heightened, it would be b.
witnessing the researches of the living, amidst
its delolation, for f6 objects of their love.
Motbers, and wives, and children, for days
were occupied in th'ap mourrfull duty ; and
the coifusibri df corpse4'frend'aidfoe 'inter

and sometimes -impossible. -
In many places the dead lay four deep upon
each other, taking ,the spot' some British
square had occupied, exposed foi hours to the
murderous fire of a French battery. Outside,
latice duriassiers w6re scattered thickly on the
earth. Madly attemping'to force-the serried
bayonets,of the Britisb, they 7bid fallen In

chivalfy. Here the Highlanders.-and tirral
leur lay, side bi side, together; ad the heavy
dragoon, with green Erin's badge -upon his
helmet, was grappling in death-with the polish
lancer. * * * * * *
'On the summit of the ridge, where the
ground wascumbered with tbe dead, and'trod
den fetlock deep in thithad and gofe by the
frequent rush of rival cavalry,the thick strewn
corpses of the imperial Guard pointed out the
spot where Napoleon had been defeated. Here,
in column, that favored corps, on whom his
last chances rested, bad been ainihilated; and
the advance and repulse of the .Guard was
traceable in masses of fallen Frenchmen. In

advocating the policy of rewoving what way
be called the dead body of slavery, and giving
it a decent but ial. It is a little singular, too,
that such opinions should be ascertained
when it is seen that the people of the South
ern States, who had a much greater interest
in the institution than w4 *bad, are now, as
they have for some time been, engaged in re
moving skl! races of slavery. They can see no
good result-to come from cinging to the de
bris of the defunct institution, arid are re
moving it with commendable despatch.
As atevidence of-the spirit which actuated
them, we quote from the Memphis Avalanche.
