The South Carolina. Deleg-ation
Feeling* of the People of the State.
A d?l?gation of South Carolinians,
composed of Hon. B. F. Perry, re?
cently appointed a provisional gov?
ernor; Hon. Janies h. Orr. .C. J. El?
ford, J. W. Grady, AV. Y. LPitch and
Poster Bl<Klgett, arrived at Willard's
yesterday. These gentlemen, includ?
ing Governor Perry, wert! appointed
by the people of Western and North?
western South Carolina to e.nae. to
Washing] on and a.-%t.he appointment
of a provisional gbvemorf?r the State.
On their \yay hither they received in
formatiou of tho appointment ?if one
of their number to that odie, , but con?
cluded to continue ?heir journey for
the purpose of eom-adtatiou with the
President :is to the measures to be
adopted in thc reconstruction of civil
government at home. The mail faeili
Lies, and even the asual^modes wf iff
tersommunication, i-i South Carolina
had bern so completely destroyed that
several days had elapsed> after the
Charleston delegation hud started rn
Washington before that fact was
known in thc V. e. tern and North-west?
ern counties, comprising tho most'
populous portion of the Slate-, and
this Relegation was appointed for those
comities in order that they might bc
properly represented herc. They art-,
however, much*,gratified ai the selec?
tion ot Governor Perry, win? resides
in ivis part of the State, and has al?
ways been a consistent opponent of
secession, having fought against it in
the secession convention of 1831 ami
18?2, and itlso iii thc one Lei 1 in 1852,
and repeatedly opposed i? in public
speeches since. Thin delegation rep?
resent the people of South Carolina
b> be unanimous in then* acquiescence
in the present order of affairs, and. not
only satisfied with then* costly experi?
ment of setting up a government for
themselves outside of the Union, and
convinced of their inability to. break
up, the Union, but are willing and
anxious to accept the ro-u*?t as au
unavoidable conclusion, and deter?
mined to do all in their power to be?
come a useful member of the old
United States! It .is their determina?
tion toijpsc no time in repairing the
damages that have accrued, and they
expect to be the first of tjie rebel States
to present their new constitution at
Washington. One good result of the
- necessity 'for a provisi? mal government
is that it will ?i|iord an opportunity
long desired in vain by a In rge majority
of the people of tho State to amend
their constitution and establish a fair
-and equal and liberal basis of- repre?
sentation in their Stall- government.
Politically the people of South Caro?
lina will be blessed by the reconstruc?
tion, ridding them of an insufterable
tyranny by which thwy have until now
been hopelessly oppressed.-(for. Xeic
York Herald.
The Washington correspondent of
the New York Herald writes as follows
under date of the 2Lst instants
' Governor Perry l?ad, by appoint?
ment, an interview with the President
this evening, for a full intercbjpige oi
views in regard to. the reconstruction
of State government in Sont ii ( !nrolina,
and other matters pertaining to his
office. . ,
The publication of ( ?ovcriior-Porry'.?
speoeh, of July. 3, has excited a storm
of indignant opposition on the part di
the more radical of tito supporters oi
the Administration. The Goverooi
has, however, had very satisfactory
ino rvie,w -. with the Presidontand mosi
- - J . 11 1 er
of. the members of tho Cabinet. They
?expreas great confidence in the loyalty
and patriotism of Governor Perry, and
believe that he will administer the
^luties of his office with a loyal spirit,
and vfith the siygle desire to restore
as speedily as possible the blessing?
of assured peace and constitutional
loyal government to the people of
that State. The explanations which
Governor Perry has given of that
speech, and the circumstances undfc
which it wan delivered, have largely
obviated the unfavorable impression
which some passages in it arc unques?
tionably calculated to convey.
Governor Perry and the accompany?
ing delegation will leave for ?South
Carolina on Monday next.
The Tribune, of the 22d instant, says:
-We have heard it suggested that Go?
vernor1 Perry's remarkable speech at
i Greenville was prompted hy a spirit
1 of thorough loyalty-that lie only said
I what he must say in sympathy with
! the lal? rebellion in order to gain the
j attention and influence the course of
his hearers. We suspect that there is
much truth in this repr?sentation, but
it only deepens our conviction that
I South Carolina is not yet ripe for re?
construction. .

Soon after the surrender this cotton

j had been purchased, to be used hy tin

I A gentleman who lias been intimal
with' Southern planters for thirl

I course which some -of these cottc
j growers have determined to pursue i

j may wish to engage in such emplo

raised is cotton. '

SUMTE a, S. C., July 22. 1865.-A
most distressing occurrence took place
in-an adjoining District a few nights
ago. An old gentleman, ros it ? not in
the country, who, from the cireum
stances, mast have anticipated ano
prepared fora visit from robbers, hear?
ing seine one on his premises at night,
hailed three times, and receiving ho
answer, fir<>d his gun with fatal e*Teet
at the object of his "suspicions- and
his fears.. Advancing to ascertain the
effect of his shot, with indescribable
anguish he discovered th? body of he;
son in thc last agonies of death --a son
who had long been "a prisoner at the
Northland whose partial deafness pre?
vented Iiis hearing his faLher's'eiial
?"a.;. . .:ee from Ie ?ie, he was tins
strangely killed ; he stopped 'Upon
'.ts threshold, by the hither whom he
loved and longed to meit. A I w
moments more and his rei aro would
havj' given joy and gladness to the.
entire household- a household now
wrapt, in grief inconsolable by this
most terrine and a.fuicting# event,. \
sad warning to ail; for even inPche
present, unsettled state of tho eonntry.

neighborhoods, one cairn ot be too

the ? Firs! Ohio Cavalry Lave been
guilty lately of some very disgraceful
proceedings in that town. < rn Thurs?

Lad a large stock of liquors, \jdiich
they were disposing of to the planters
in exchange for cotton and other pro?
duce. They had refused to sell liquor
to the soldiers, exceptio olfieers, and
it was snjyposed this refusal had en?
raged the men and led to the pillaging
of the store:, Their loss is estimated
at between two ami three thousand
dollars. The Post Commandant did
all in his power to arrest the parties,
but was ?nanle to sa vi" the store.
We learn that some of the same party
afterwards proceeded'to the hotel and
caused some disturbances there, break?
