Gli:r.t)ses of South. Carolina Union?
WASUINOTOX. July 21.-I have just
been holding ;i long conversation >vith
u leading member of the South Caro?
lina delegation about Gov. IVrry'n
lr.textraordinary speech, and on the
gctu-ral subject of South Carolina
Unionism, yhen T ? xnlain that this
.ientlcmun is an intimate friend und
f ?rmer business associate of < ?-overnor
berry's, and that, by recommendation
of that (??ricer, he 1ms recently been
appointed to an important position
under the "Provisional Government,"
it will not bc doubted that lie placer
matters in the most favorable light for
the Govert tor. and that his own loy?
alty nr.d Unionism ore of the bast
type President Johnson can lind iii
South Carolina.

Not unnaturally. tingan the conver?

My impetuosity sti/prisuJ my sal

and to coax them into<ondiug Repr??

this, of course he hado conciliate, the
prejud ces of all. Thro is no hotter
Unionist in South (irolfna or the
whole So;:;h than Pery!"
"wi: WEI:!-: A LI.; ?ir.v.i.s."

it ever will under ?tai, the ul isolate

was begun, wo all suporten it; while
there was any use ii if, wc resisted
si cession; but after tit State seceded,
our District, which waa Iv*'y s strong?

"?bu mean then, tit, after seces?
sion was accomplish!, the former
Unionists h earne nio|?violent rebels
?han thc rest; and tit. practically,
not a-soul in the Statiremaincd true
to the Union, except Ie negroes?"
"Well, 1 suspect yo re a Little mis"
taken about the negra. They Ve very
ignorant, and most of lieut wore and
are governed by th? master's no
t ions."
Recurring to ins j attjmeat, that
Governor L'orry hadyeen trying to
coax the S uith Caniiians lo come
out to riv tb ?tions af vote for Con
; ?"i . e. ien. I :." ked 1^ if there !S
likely to be any difficulty ou that,
"Well,.I guess there'll be a very
small vote; but," he added, with the
skill of a thorough-bred politician,
"those who do vote will ve;-;.- fairly
represent the wishes of the rest. We
:irt; a. very proud and sensitive people,
and a good many have a natural dis?
position to shrink from thc oath of
allegiance to a Government they cast
oil" forever nearly five years ago. In a
year or two they'll come in all right;
and, meantime, they'll oe very glad or
the results which the votes ot their
neighbors will secure. South Carolina j
Ls and will be ono o? the very best
Union States we have."
"But wind security have we, in re?
storing political power to a coniiuu
; nity disposed towards us as your's was,
j and still feeling as voa now repre?
! "Oh, our people are impulsive, and
they are always decided, one way or
I tko other."
I "Suppose the representatives you
I elect should be admitted t<> Congress,
I and Sc^h Carolina should mus bo
: clothefliPR?th all her old power-you
who before- secession wer ? tho Union
men, will be tlie only voters now, as
you state it. but in two tu- ? hr->e years,
or com's.', everybody will vote again.
\ "Will not you original Union ne n be
?gain out-numbered by the original
: secessionists?"'
i "1 don't believe we ever wore out
? numbered. 1 don't believe there ever
was a majority for secession in .South
j Carolina."
' "Tho poll , books tell a different
i story."'
i "Yes, but remember we have been
fighting secession for thirty y oars and
j had gor tirod of it. Men' said these
', restless spirits will never be" quiet
j until they have tried secession. If wc
don t I-.-1, them try it now, they'll keep
us Lu a constant turmoil until we do.
h is bound to conn; some tira^, ?ind
! wc may us well spare ourselves further
trouble and let it com-- now. "-"
"In other words, then, men said let
\ the Union be destroyed, with what?
ever attendant horrors, rather than
one should bo bothered t<> keep up
! this perpetual struggle. "
"Well, not exactly that. You must
remember there was a tremendous
: pressure. ? myself hail my house
surrounded by :t hundred and fifty
. armed tuon, one night before the elec
. tion, because they thought i was a
j Union niau. There w;is no making
; head against the current."
The South Carolinian was;: gentle?
man, at once by birth, culture and
?bearing, (which is niora than cen be
'said of lunch of the driftwood now
thrown uppermost in Southern socie?
ty in the process ol' re-organization,)
ami so 1 did not add aloud the mental
comment which no :.:;-:i can help
making on these explanations--that if
tee Union mon were, as he said, in a
' majority, they acted tuon like < -wards;
?in<l if they were liol, they ure acting
now lihe hvpoeriios. .ibu i could not
: help saying: ' :
"By your showing, then, the rebel,
j element was resistless before the pns
! sit,ge of ti"- secession ordinance, and
universal aft -r ii. As you frankly say,
j you v. ero all rebel-;. We haw incurred

and we knott find there is a- small

I the del r incurred in whipping you?
I Would there not bo very great danger

j the North, and thus' securing a

I "Well, our attention has never been
I called to that subject, and we were' not
aware that there was likely to be any
I portion whatever of your people ?a

how ever, what our more Violent people
