Tothe E?ito.* of ike PhouLi',-Sir.: War lias a charac ter of its own, and though iu a ?world offsin and ?wicked? ness, it may he viewed as a necessity, .still at till times thc "wisc and reflecting have regarded it ns a great evil. Ka ?pinc, murder, extortion, oppression in ?ill its forms, and a. drying vp <>f the sweet fountain of human affections - these are its unavoidable accompani? ments. Xor have AVC escaped any of ils disastrous effects in tho protracted struggle through which wc In\ve just passed. On thc contrary, they have been visited upon the people of thc South with ?i degree of severity, per? haps, never surpassed, lint my pur? pose is to call attention, in a few ! words, to on<; of these effects only -I j mean the ruined fortunes of the poo- j plo, with ;t few exceptions, and the privation and povcrtywith which they arc now afflicted. If ever there wa" a time to avahen the sympathy cd' the few who ure in a condition to help the. needy, and to secure a liberal and , .generous legislation, it is the present. Notwithstanding ?the general and ttn .exampled destruction of the wealth of the country, i?uch eau bo done to ?alleviate its distresses and to quicken into new life its almost paralyzed energies, il call especially upon those among us who have, the good fortune tobe creditors, to be indulgent and generous. Thousands and lons of thousands have nothing left but thc mere fragments of their former es tates, and mt not these morsels bc taken from them. No blaine can attach to them for their changed con? dition. This list is made up ot the wort l i st and best persons cf thc .community. Let it be remembered that they became poor by their devo? tion t<? what they regarded tho cause of right and justice; tha-t thus they were taught by the great statesmen ot the country*, and that from *l$e doublt ' pressure d' a sense ot duty and th? compulsory acts <>f thc Government, there was no possibility ?d' esonpe. J insist, thou, that t ii . hotly of the peo plo are guiltless, if guilt there be. an? ?hat they haven rigid, to demand th? most generous course ?d' conduct ??i thc part, ot' tho Legislature, and indi vidually. ft is no time l'or grindin; oppression, For tho appearance o Mivlarks ' betted th is abhorred bib have, place among us; and il oil should dare to show his hideous front let the brand of infamy be put upo it, that all good men may know an detest him. lt is a fact well know to all that, throughout the war, tb denton of cupidity and cxtortio stalked through the land, and that i every community there were indiv duals who fattened upon lb e distress* and necessities of others. 1 fear th. this detested spirit ?3 yet among u and is going about like a rouringlic-i seckiug whom it may.devour. Wi?' we contemplate our past history; wilt we think of tl.1 at proverbial geuerosil ?vhieh wsts iii" boast of our people; th.it cont? mpt of money, which, as'M conceived, pr? -ented us in such favc contrast with ? the people otlier sections of the United State every v .*.<.. citizeu of Carolinamt fee] ashamed of the fact, that here, tc Matomoip baa hil thrones where i. worshipper may "bow and sue for] grace with supidiant knee, and deify | his power." (Jan it be that distant, j communities have moro sympathy j with us than wc have with each oilier? Can it bo that the people of tty- North, of New York, have their bowels el compassion moved towards tho su (tl r ihg thousands of the South while those among us who have an abuudaneo ?it resources look wich hearts nutouchoa and would take the last cent from tho poor orphan and widow ? Let me give two pictures, and first look upon this am? then upon that. Two mer? chants of Columbia reco?tJy returned from New York, where they went with the view of settling with thou* credi? tors and making arrangements for again commencing business. Their creditors expressed the deepest sym? pathy for them, assured them that they attached no blame to them for i not meeting their liabilities, and of- I fered at once thc most generous terms j of settlement. One of them informed j nu* that he was tendered a receipt in i full without the paynieut ?d' a <i ?Har, j buttha! he asked to be permitted-to pay '2~> cents on the dollar, ?md thai he gave bin note?ice?>rdingh . payable i athis own time. The other vms al-j lowed also to prescribe his own terms j of seulement. All this was truly gen- I I ?rous, says the reader, but a still 1 ?gb- j cr generosity is implied in what 1 now proceed t<> relut??. They were told ; that they would again establish them in business, ami ?hut they would fur I nish t ic-ia with any amount of sine!-. 1 I hoy desired on any time which tin y won Id" designa tc. Tiny have now re? turned with valuable stocks, and their bright, happy laces declare not only thc foy alni hope wi yell reign in their bosoms, but cheer ?ind gladden nil around them. Nov." h-t ns look at thc other picture One of thc worthiest citizens of L?ichluinl. vin? luis sus? tained :i lus-; of :: lunnlrcil negroes, besides other 'property', vas asked for money a few days ?rhicu by one of In's creditors. Lu reply, hot? ?ld 1 dui of his heavy losses, that ho had m? money, and that so great mid general was the dist ress-1 d' the country that be though! creditors might to be generous ami settle on tenus which would stop sbori of utter ruin. To this th? creditor replies, that In: v ill accede to no term which will not secure to him pay mein in full of principal and interest. ! hope that '"thors will be-less exacting; that those among us who have pas..cl through Hie terrible crisis with manns not exhausted, will come to the help of thu needy, that the ancient, gener? ous spirit of Carolina may quicken into a higher lile und activity, and that her people limy feel the full loree of thc inspired truth, that "it is bet? ter to give than to receive."
