Dxi Sria: You have done me the hon=
or to call for my opinion relative to .the.
action of the South under the military bill.
Having seldom taken any pain. in politics
Ido not feel well qualified to advise on so
momentous a question ; nevertheless, as
the same desire to obtain my views has
been manifested from various quarters,
I shall not shrink from responsibility of
expressing them, in the hope that; they
may tend to quiet the public mind, so
justly alarmed at this moment. ;
In my humble opinion, we have but
one of two things to do-resist or sub
mit. The first is inadmissible, in our
painfully exhausted condition. Four
years of a desperate war have taught us
that the "Largument of the sword" can
no longer be resorted to by us to redress
our grievances. We must, therefore,
submit; but with that calm dignity be
coming our manhood and our lost inde
Having been overpowered in the late
struggle, we can submit to the harsh and
ungenerous conditions of our conquerors
without dishonor, and we must adopt
the least of two evils; a futile resistance
= would only cause our rivets to be driven
closer; we must then acquiesce ,r leave
the country. But we love too dearly the
land of our birth to abandon it in its
hour of severest trial. We should avoid,
also, bringing it, by internal.dissensions,
to the condition of poor Mexico, and the
unfortunate South American Republics.
With regard to the suffr..ge of the
freedmen, however objectionable it may
be at present, it is an element of strength
for the future. if properly handled and
directed, we shall defeat our adversaries
with their own weapon.
The negro is southern born ; with a
rttle education and some property quali
Beations, he can be made to take suffi
cient interest in the affairs and prosperity
of the South to insure an intelligent vote
on his part.
In our future political contests with
the North, on protective tariffs, internal
- improvements, etc., the freedmen of the
South will side with the whites of the
South and of the West, and they will
thus contribute to give us back the influ
ence we formerly had in the councils of
Our people should understand that tho
radicals.can remain in power only so
long as the public excitement is kept up ;
as with the turbid waters of the Missis
aippi River, the sedimentary particles;
are kept up at the surface only so long
as the waters are in motion ; the instant
the current is checked, those particles
fall to the bottom. Thus will it be with
the radicals, when peace and quiet are
restored to the country ; the conserv
atives will then take 'the reins in their
-own hands, and the 'constitutional laws
of the~ land will once more prevaiL.
I-remain yours, respectfully,

- To THE EDITOR OF THE NEW ORLEANS
DEAR Sri In your paper of yester
day you have expressed a desire to bear
the views of several gentlemen upon the
political condition of the country. I
find my name mentioned upon your list,
and proceed without hesitation to re
As I have never applied myself to poli
tics, I cannot claim to speak to the wise
statesmen of the country, who are devo
ting their energies to the solution of the
problem which agitates the public mind.
I can onry speak the plain, honest convic
- tions of a soldier.
It can hardly be necessary, at this late
-day, to enter into a discussion of the
matter that. is usually brought up in ar
guing upon the proposed plan for recon
structing the Government. Indeed, I
think that many of them are not perti
nent to the question.
The striking feature, and the one that
our people should keep in view, is that
we are a -conquered people. Recogni
zing this fact fairly and squarely, there
is but one course left for wise men to
pursue. Accept the terms that are -of
fered us by the conquerors ! -There can
be no discredit to a conquered people for
accepting the conditions offered by their
conquerors. Nor is there any occasion
for a feeling of .humiliation. We have
made an honest, and I hope that I might
say, a creditable fight, but we have lost.
Let-us come forward, then, and accept
the ends involved in the struggle.
- Our people earnestly desire ,that the
- - - constitutional Government shall be re
- established, and the only means to ac
- complish this is to comply with the re
quirements of the recent .Congressional
It is said by some that Congress will
not receive us even after we have comn
plied with their conditions. But I can
finadno sufficient reason for entertaining
this proposition-for a moment. I cannot
admit that the representative men of a
great nation could make such a pledge
in bad faith. Admitting, however, that
there is such-a mental reservation, can
- that be any excuse for us in failing to
--discharge our duty ? Let us accept the
terms as we are in duty .bound to do,
and if there is a lack of good faith, let it
be upon others~

SENSI.BLE ADVIcE.-The Greensboro'
(Ala.) Beacon gives the following very
sensible advice to the land owners of
that section. The advice is equally aip
plicable to this latitude, and we trust it
will not be ttally !ost on those to whom
it is addressed. The Beacon says:
"Land owners, who wish to devolve
upon others the trouble, annovance andj
uncertainty of tilling the soil~ with the
labor of the freedmen, should also be
moderate in fixing their rents. The&
prospects for the agriculturist, as well as
or the merchant, and we may add, all
ther avocat ions of business, are decided
ly bad throughoutL the South. Men who,
in the face of such discouraging indica
tiQns, agree to pay rents, are very likely
to pd thermselves, at the end of 1867,
unable to comply with their promises.
Moderate rents, and a reasonable certain
ty of prompt payments, are greatly pre
ferable to high ~gures and uncertain pay

The Fashion of no Crinoline.
The Paris correspondent of the Chicago
Republican writes as follows concei ning
a matter which will be of interest to lady
readers, so says an exchange. Now we
very much doubt if the information will
prove of so much interest after all.
What matters it if Crinoline is out of
fashion in Paris, our ladies do not live
in Paris; should any of them go there,
no doubt they will conform to the pre
varling style, but here it is another thing.
We see no diminution in Crinoline, nor
want to. You have our permission then
and are advised to wear the graceful
article, "The Empress Trail," "Pride of
the World," "The Man Pleaser," "The
Tilter Up," "The Tiltereen," "The
Street Sweeper, "The Morning Glory,"
or any other style which suits, its all one
to us. Crinoline to the last. The cor
respondent says in speaking of the Court
"Not a crinoline was to be seen. These
articles have gone entirely out of fashion
The most remarkable toillette was that
of a Russian lady, who wore a gray silk
with a train three yards long, covered
with silver tulle, looped up with a wreath
of natural tea roses. The corsage was
nearly imperceptible, except when the
diamonds gleamed , and a bird of Para
dise perched upon her head, attached by
a diamond, from which dropped the long
plume upon her shoulders.
In the forthcoming life and campaigns
of Gen. RI. IE. Lee, by D. McCabe, Esq.,
of Virginia, we find the following state
It cost Colonel Lee a great and painful
struggle to leave the service with' which
he had been so long cor'nected. For
more than twenty-tive years he had
served with ciedit and distinction in the
Federal army, and now held in the opin
ion of both tho fu-my' and the country
the second position in it in point of merit,
being regarded as the most fitting succes
sor to the veteran Lieutenant-General , to
whom he was bound by the strongest
ties of love and esteem. If he remained
in the Federal service, honor and high
military distinction awaited him. The
President of the United States, through
one of the Cabinet, offered him the
immediate command of the army,* and
General Scott implored him to remain.
Every influence that could be thought of
was brought to bear upon the great sol
dier to induce him to remain in the Fed
eral service. Colonel Lee himself knew
that if he complied with these urgent re
quests, his military ambit'on would be
fulfilled in every thing. He kne w also that
if he linked his fate with that of Virginia,
suffering and sorrow were in store for
him; that from wealth he would descend
to poverty ; and that he would be pro
claimed to the whole as a traitor by the
Government he had loved so well. It
was a terrible trial, and had be been in
fiuenced by convictions less pure, or a
sense of duty less high, ambition would

to a high state of dignity. We have mer

flattery too. His reputation is wide

THE TABLEAU of Bunyan's Pilgrim's
Progress, statuary and a series of comic
pictures drew a large audience to the
Court House on Monday night last. Our
readers are doubtless familiar with Bun

that the pictures exhibited were faithful
delineations of the principal scenes in this
highly interesting allegorical history.
The representations of statuary were
very good, while the comicahities called
for shouts of a[ proval from the boys and
girls. It is the design of the proprietors
to visit Laurens and other towns, and we
wish them a success equal to their merits.

THE MEfr,G.-The temperance meet
ing on Friday night last, at the Court
House, was the largest and most respec
table we have had the pleasure of 'seeing
since old Lang Syne. At an early hour,
the.brilliantly 'ighted and tastefully -dec
orated hall was filled to overflowing with
ladies and gentlemen. - Being called to or
der by President H. H. Kinard, the meet
ing was opened with prayer, by the Rev.
W. S. Black, after which the orator for the
occasion, Rev. J. P. Smeltzer, delivered
an eloquent and pointed address. Other
addresses and appeals were made, when
the books were opened, and a call for
signatures. A little backwardness and
timidity seemed manifest on the part of
the young mett, upon which the ladies
were invited to come up and set an ex
ample. An immediate and hearty re
sponse was the effect, when a pleasing
alacrity took the place of former timidity
among "sinewy forms," and the pledge
to abstain from the "cup which ine
briates" was taken by a large number.
The example here set by the ladies de
serves particular commendation. What
would we do without woman, the fist
in love, the first in peace, the first to en
courage and the last to desert a good
cause. This society, organized but ten
days since by five or six men, who see
ing the folly of their course, determined
to indulge no more in liquid l oisons, but
to make water, "sparkling and bright"
their future beverage, now numbers one
hundred and seven members. Out of
weakness cometh strength, for there is
strength in numbers.- We wish the So
ciety God speed.
On Friday night at the same place and
hour, another meeting will be held, and
addresses delivered by the Revs. Black
and Huff. The public are invited to at
tend. We woulu suggest, to give ad
ditional interest to the occasion, that an
ode he sang, immediately after the open
ing prayer, either "Sparkling and Bright"
"Come sign the vow" or any other which
may be thought appropriate.
LooK oL-r.-Our readers are fimiliar
with the old story told of the Captain of
a Canal boat, who when passing under
a lock or bridge would cry "look out," a
precaution to the passenger lest his head
should suffer a collision. His object
was to have them look in and not out.
Just so must the order of our friends
Mayes & Martin be construed. Their
cry to the public is to look out, while
their desire is for them to look-in. They
are in want of' a number of colts ; for
what purpose we cannot imagine, but we
believe from the high character these
gentlen4en sust-iin that they have no evil
design in view. Had they said "40 grey
horses all in a row" one might believe
they wanited to "land on -the other side of
Jordan4" to "git up and git" from the
"destruction bill" and its consequences.
Perhays they want to start a circus, or

"SMALLToRK." - We don't like long
talkers, never did and never will, unless
they have something to talk about; even
then don't take kindly to them ; don't
like them in our office when there is
work to be done, nor care to meet them
on the street when we are aaer a delin
quent sub. or a slow-paying ad., or when
going to dinner ; in fact at no time. They
are bores of the worst species, and give
us the fidgets ; we'd as soon bave the
itch, or tic doloreux; as soon listen to a
forty-air, out of tune hand organ, or the
midnight caterwaulings of cross-grained
cats. When two of-this character meet
it is so excruciating that our legs run
away with us. The-consequences to the
parties themselves sometimes result hap
pily, as for example a correspondent of
the Reformed Presbyterian says:
"We heard a story lately, of two men
in Georgia, talking each other to death.
These men entered Judge D's office, and,
to get rid of them, he left the office for a
time, p.romising to return. But he did
not return until morning, and then found
one of his loquacious friends on the floor
with his tongue hanging out, saying,
'take him off-take him off,' while-the
other was down on his knees still able to
whisper in the dying man's ear.
"This story must be somewhat colored.
It may 'be founded oi fact,' for such talk

little dog, whose tail took it into its head,

address would be 'incomplete wvithout a

story told at an anti-temperance meeting,
and as it hangs upon a little dog, we
give it a place, with credit to the Pres
'yterian also :
