CHARLESTON. SATURDAY MOBKINO. ?SEPTEMBER 16, 18C5. TiiEiiE have been two ovents in tho political world within a Bow days past that have had happy cfTects upon the spirits of our people Of these, one was tho letter of President Johnson to the Military Governor of Missis.-iopi. There is every reason to believe that tho impression the South is still in a smouldering state of insurrection was in dustriously mude upon his mind ; but, with the Bound common-sense, which even detraction must accord him, ho saw that nothing was more unrea sonable; that representations to that end were more attempts at Imposition; that though tho feelings of the South were not complacent or joyous, as (if Ota people were fit "for anything it wore utterly impossible they should be) it was out of question that the States could rise, or seek to riao again. And seeing this, he seems to have considered that nothing more was necessary; that it was not his office, or that of the Govomment, to hector and dragoon the people into exhibitions of affection and respect for their recent enemies; that it was not the object or achievement of the war to extort respect for those who might not be personally entitled to it; bill to restore tho Union of coequal States, which, whatever emissaries and agents might think of it. was just us cffcctually dono if those agent? were held in contempt, u/ it would be if held in the highest admiration. And this having been his conception aud purpose, us it would seem, and i-eeing that the orgauUatioii t?f the local militia for dornest?V police in Mis-dt-sippi would not only not be dangerous, but would, in fact, improve the feeling of the people, by v-.i--.ii'>; them something to do, and especially something to do in oonsisteiuv with existing order?hi? sol ting aside the military decree of G?nerai SSukt.m. who saw insolence at least (which, perhaps, was poraonally the most important), if not insubordi nation and danger, in such organization, is a most significant and cheering fact. It indicate?, as we have said, that it is not disloyal to despond; not crime to mourn over our bereavements and afilie tiou; not the highest civic duty now to disaffirm ourselves, and fawn on power; and in such indi cation is, indeed, a moat pleasant and important political fact. But the more important ia tho recent order, with the approval of President Johnson, from the Frecdmen's Bureau. Our readers, evou of this State, we presume, were not fully aware of the fa vors intended for them by the officers of that or ganisation. The military, taking possession of a large quantity of land and other property, upon I invasion of the seaboard districts of the States, the personal property was disposed of, but the lands were held, and, more recently, havo been turned over to the Bureau above mentioned. From much of this land the owners were driven by the forces of the Government; from much of it?being min ors, widows, aged, or infirm?owners were neces sarily absent, in the enjoyment of more comfortable homes elsewhere. But it was seized indiscrimin ately. All was abandoned from which the owner was absent; and, if not absent for some unlawful purpose, he was to show that fact?but through forms and ceremonies, which rendered it, in many cases, practically impossible; and if absout aiding or encouraging tho rebellion, whether pardoned or not, he was not to havo restoration of his prop erty at all, but it was to be distributed out to the freedmen of the districts. The stato of facts re sulting and indicated was exceeding disastrous. While in other sections of tho South, and of this State oven, the people wero allowed to accept tho losses of tho war as facts accomplished, and go, at once, to tho work of reconstructing their fortunes, we, hero, were Btill suspended. Wo could not tell what would be our property, or when wo would get it; aud, iu danger of starvation, wo are now as far from the opportunity to begin our work as we were six mouths ago. Nor did this seem tho utmost purpose of these people. Tho ruin would not bo complete and fnll, practical justice administered, without tho lands were divided out among tho negroca, and tho edi fying spectaclo exhibited of slaves and mastors changing placea. The result of this could not be too much doplored. It might afford a temporary triumph to the negro to bo put in his master's house, and it would bo an advantage to some fow to distribute this property among them. But son siblo men must have known that tho thing now to he dono is to bring tbcBO races' together in har mony. That the negro has uo use for triumphs; as a race, no uso for the crumbs of property that may fall to liim through the industry of this bu reau; but ho haB uso for tho omployment, tho good feeling, the guidance and direction of tho white race. These aro indispensable to him. They are tho conditions of his oxistenco, and of more avail to him f til could bo tho contributions of forty thousand . reodmen's Bureaus, if every bureau had twice tho industry and energy of this; and in the tendency of this policy to tako from masters to givo to former slaves?to set them up in tho seats and cherished places of their former owners?thoro maybe inuoh that is edifying; much to tittillatc the taste of those who are on tiptoo for glimpscB of poetic justice. There ia much to estrange theso races; much to cmbittor feeling; much to render reconcilement impossible; and, perhaps, no pcoplo upon earth, therefore, wore ever in condition to receivo such irroparablo ruin from thoii- friends. In these arrangements, however, it would seem the purpose of tho Tr?pident not fully to con cur. . Iu tho modifications mado in tho circular to which wo havo referred it appears, vory plainly, that he has determined his Pardon and Amnosty Proclamation shall bo respected, and that persons pardoned shall, in fact, he restored to their prop erty. It ia, also, to ho inforred that ho doos not concur iu the belief that the highest object of the Government ia to luuublo masters by elevating slaves, and that it is his purposo to administer victory, not. to tho passions of party, but .to the. good of tho Union, whoso cherished name inspired the energies of war. It is still to bo regrottod, howevor, that to tho restoration of property such onorous and inconve nient forms aro necessary. Tho proporly, not abandoned, can only ho reclaimed through appli cation to tho Department of tho Frcodiacn's Bureau at Hilton Hoad, undor General Saxton; and that to bo restored undor tho Amnesty Proc lamation can only bo roelalmed from General Howajid, the head of that Bureau at Washington; and tho inconvenience of proof, and tho delays in cident to proceedings at such a diatanco, are very great, and scarcoly to bo compensated by corres ponding advantages to tho Government. Under tho Amnesty Proclamation of Prosidont Lincoln, and tho orders of tho Attornoy-Goneral, property was restored, on proof of compliance with Act of Amnosty, by tho District Attorneys in whoso charge it may havo boon for prosocution, and a form of proceedings to tho same.- pffoot,! which would admit tho restoration by local, officers, would bo of vory great convenience and advantage to our people bore. i? ?B??*11 KlI-rATBicK has ontorod on tho canvas? ?rk on\?y- , H0 ma(?? hia P* ?PCecli -U1 -NOW ara on Wednesday ovoning last.

EunOLS, Sec'y cf State. 11 .< % il?Its Present Political Condition. The Island of Hayti is not so large In area as Pennsylvania, and has but one-third as much pop ulation as this State, yet it has two r?volutions on hand and one foreign war. Half tin islniul is Spanish, and half negro. The negro half is 0 so called republic, the President being for life. The white half is a real republic, and a provisional government has been conducting its political af fairs for tbo last few years, during the invasion by Spain. Spain does not like republics, and she trieil to "squelch" the little Spanish republic, which lind so often defied her power, and established its independence. She took advantage of our rebel lion to annex the Spanish half to tho island, but the experiment did not succeed, for the Dominicans drove her out. The attempt under the Spanish O'Doniiell ministry ia to be renewed, alter protes tations from the Narrare- ministry, lately m pow er, that Spain was no longer a proselyte to the very common idea of extending political empire by foreign conquest. In the midst of this trouble comes a popular revolution, the chief towns rising against General Pimentel, who has been in com mand of the Dominican troopa, and pronouncing in favor of Cabrai, whom they named Protector of tho Republic. Cabrai - manifesto announces " lib erty? equality, fraternitv;" that he expects to secure unity and peace, desires co-operation, and advisca Pimentel, for the sake of the lie-public, to submit to its choice. The uegro half of the island is in revolution also?it utmost always is?fluctuating between re publicanism and absolute monarchy. Geffrard, who overthrew Faustin the First, and proclaimed the republic, lixed himself in power for life. There have been one or two attempts to overthrow him, and on one occasion his life was attempted by as sassination, but his daughter was the victim of the bullet sent at his head. A rebellion is now in pro gress, and the rebels appear to bo specially inimi cal to the white residents, demanding that they shall havo none of their usual privileges, anil threatening their Uves. This revolution is led by a committee of ton chiefs, who have sent a com missioner to Washington to represent their cause. When our Government recently acknowledged the independence and accepted a Minister Plenipoten tiary to represent tho Haytien Government, it probably did not oxpect so soon to have two claim ants to that honor. Tho representative of the rebel power, if truly represented in then- enmity to tho whites, may find some difficulty in establish ing their claim to bo heard. Hayti, which is so torn by civil dissension and war, is a most beautiful and fertile island, but its agriculturo ia in tho most primitive state. Its commorco is valued at $10,000,000. Seventy-five years ago its exports woro nearly $28,000,000. Sugar is no longor exported. The export of coffee has been reduced to one-third, and ot cotton onc tonth of its fornior export.?Bhila. Ledger. Tlic Frce_m.cn In Georgia. [Frtni the ''aeon Telegraph, August 30.] We arc glad to noto a slight falling off in tho number ot negroca in our midst, or at least on our streets. A majority of those in the city, we think, have some kind of employment. Since the sub siding of tho stir and excitement consequent upon their sudden transition by tho termination of tho war, they have been returning to thoir bonica in the country, or to othor plantations. Almost every day we can see them still going?by tho railroads ?in rude carts, drawn by what were once horses? and sometimes on foot, with thoir effects upon their backs. Thoy are beginning to und out that their first droam of freedom?in which thoy pic tured themselves only eating and drinking, moving about to suit their pleasure, and resting at will, and to their heart's content?has proven as delusive as the air-castloa of youth, which arc banished by tho stern realitios of inaturer years. They see the gardons which havo yioldcd so bountifully this season wearing that neglected appearance "which betokens that thoy are fast becoming valueless for this yoar to their tillers; thoy begin to realize the fact that when tho abundant fruit orop has. been gathorod and stored away,- it will require -money to procuro that with which to sustain Ufo. They aro invino, too, that it requires action?work?to obtain money. An occasional cool spell reminds them that winter, with its frosts, cold winds, and pelting storms, is approaching, and tho memory of thou* cabins on the farms, with their broad flro places and log lioap fires, invito them back again to their deserted homos. We are glad to know that as they return a great many of then- former masters aro making agreeable contracta with them for tho continuance of their agricultural labors; and wo hope to seo them again, as in the past, with cheerful bearing, following tho plow, clear ing tho now ground, and, dnring the oarly hours of long winter nights, amusing themselves on the corn-pile, and evincing their contontedness by a repetition of their old "corn-shucking songa." Imt while many aro profiting by the lesson they havo learned, and,are looking to their intorost for the future, others still soom to bo charmed with city life, and romain, living from hand to mouth, and one meal only, trusting to luck for tho next. And sometimes wo ean yet see new arrivals of them, generally on foot, with thoir clothing and what provisions thoy may have, on their bucks. Some who woro their ownors, commit an orror in not admonishing thorn to*remain at their homes, whore thoir sor vice? aro needed. We havo known cases whero thoy woro warnod to remain by their former owners, and yet thoy told them to uao their own judgment-thoy had_tbo privilege of staying;-bal- if they thought thoy-could do bettor by leaving, thoy would not bo persuaded other wise. _ _ An Old Soi_)i_b.?Alexander Aitken, who lately died in Edinburgh, had taken part in a series Of important engagements such as seldom falls to the lot of coo tho longest lived and moat distin fulsiieu soldier.
