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."
