Sunday Morning, October 8, 1865.
Tire sudden and'entire* change in the labor system of the South ren? ders tb? swiftiion her people are called tO accept one of grave respon siM8tyr*?id ?hended" with more seri? ?s diSfc^ieslhan any they have had yet to, ;*ir?imt*r: ? e^t?nt? must be accepted* ' coraudiy, honestly and loyally,' without reserve br hesitation, by all who. desire to see the country restored io peace "and prosperity. Under the? new order of things, we find ourselves surrounded by a busy crowd. Ali have work to do and > duties to perform, which, although new to most of us, must be done and performed with ai?gl?ness of purpose and "hearty devotion to a work of such paramount importance as the recon? struction of a free Government. It is not inappropriate to remark here, that we of South Garo?iu? have had more to do with politics in the past than was either profitable or ad? vantageous to our interests as a peo? ple. It will be a Ibt?g time before we can be dragged again into political complications Or party feuds. And it is eminently proper and wise to ab- ! jure for the present party or political organizations, only selecting for our suffrages our best, wisest and most experienced men for the various posi- ! tions which it is necessary to fill to j complete the work of organizing our Government. Place in the Congress, in the Legislature, in the Executive j and all other civil offices, men to whom you can confide your greatest inte? rests; and having done this, you may apply yourselves unfettered and un? encumbered te the? great work you have to accomplish both for your? selves and your posterity. "Whatever, might have been the I early apprehensions of our people on the accession of the present Chief Magistrate of the United States, we may frankly say that they are not now entertained-that the poHcy of the President, so far as it has been developed, and. his official acts to the present time, have inspired the peo- j pie of the South with confidence in his patriotism and honesty of pur purpose. So far, be has a right to claim the approval and support of the people of the Southern States in the coming contest, which it is almost certain he will have with the restless spirit of radicalism. To this extent, then, our people may patriotically go, and must feel a deep interest in the result of the struggle between wise conservatism and rampant fanaticism. In all other political issues, they have but little interest, and wre have no doubt they will turn to the cultivati on of their lands, the building up of their trade, commerce and manufac? tures, with an earnestness of purpose and a cheerful devotion, that will leave little time for pobtical harangues or party caucusses. This is the path of wisdom and of duty. Help for lite South. We see it stated in a New York journal that an association has been organized in that city, under the title of tho '"Southern Beal Estate and Emigration Company," whose object is to introduce capital, mechanical skill and emigration into the Southern States. Capital and mechanical skill and labor are all necessary to aid the South in the work of recuperation, and it is to be desired that every honest and honorable effort in that direction will meet with success. All .such enterprises should receive the encouragement of our people, no .matter where conceived, or by whom they are undertaken. An assessment of $20 per head has been recently laid upon every Fenian in tlie United States, which will re? alize tlie sum of five millions of dol? lars. Where will it go to? Le Jf?? ?twpi>fo? ''stated. Wi. the. country | along the line of the Mississippi Cen? tral Railroad is in the most desirable ? state of repose~-no guerillas, no rob? beries, no violence. All have turned their hands to peaceful pursuits, and the demoralization caused by the ter? rible ordeal of the past four, year? is being obliterated; society is. being re Or?*mzed; the" awowd^ has i**^?'1been converted into the plough-share; the future is bright with promise, and all eyes are bright with anticipations of the good time coming. - COTTON FACTORY ON THU PACIFIC. The first cotton manufacturing com? pany organized on the Pacific coast have commenced operating a mill in San Francisco, with a paid capital of , $100,000, and will commence manu? facturing in November with thirty two looms and thirty operatives. They will manufacture drills and standard sheeting. Two National Banks have failed. The First National Bank of Attica, New York, and the American National Bank of Hallowell have gone by the board. The capital of both these de? funct institutions foot up an aggre? gate of one hundred thousand dollars. TEXAS.-At a large meeting of the citizens of Austin, Grimes and Wash? ington Counties, Texas, they resolved j to accept the situation, with a desire to co-operate with the President's and Governor's plans for re-organiz? ing the State, and soliciting the Go? vernor to call a Convention. THE EMIGRATION MOVEMENT.-Our readers will remember the article which appeared in our columns a day or two ago, regarding the organiza? tion of emigration societies in Ger? many and Poland; also the announce? ment that one colony of the latter nationality had selected a site for permanent location on the Trinity River, near Palestine, Texas. Since the publication of the articl? in ques? tion, we learn on excellent authority that there has been a meeting of the leading Poles in this city, and that the subject of Polish emigration to the South was taken into serious consi? deration. The consultation was held in tli?| office of the Secretary of State, and about a dozen gentlemen were pre? sent, the principal subject taken under discussion being the best mode which could be adopted for receiving their fellow-countrymen immediately upon arriving iu this city, and for? warding them to their final destination with thc least inconvenience and trouble. The meeting was informal, and no defiuite plan was arrived at, but we hope and believe that much good will spring from it hereafter. It is intended by these gentlemen, we learn, to organize a permanent so? ciety for the encouragement of emi? gration, and we hope their efforts will meet with the fullest success. As we remarked on a previous occasion, we cannot have too many of this class the agriculturists-in Louisiana, and we doubt not if an appeal was pro? perly made, that our Polish fellow citizens would receive the most sub? stantial aid and encouragement from this community, generally, in further? ance of their plans. In connection with the colony to be established at Palestine, we may remark'that several very respectable Polish families from this city have attached their fortunes to those of the colonists, and will leave for Texas as soon as the others arrive. We think this subject of emigration, especiallly of citizens of thc kind referred to, a matter of deep impor? tance to the entire community, all circumstances considered, and we should be pleased to see an organiza? tion for the purpose of inducing peo? ple who think of emigrating from agricultural districts of the Old World, to tum their steps hitherward. It would be a mutual benefit-an advan? tage both to the emigrants and the State. The former are in search of rich fertile fields-Louisiana possess? es these lands, but needs the emi? grants to cultivate them. Thus all concerned can be suited. [New Orleans Delia. AN EMBASSY FROM THE BEY OP TU? NIS.-An Embassy from the Bey of J TaniB has arrived at Washington, con I veying a letter of condolence on the death o? President, Lincoln, and con? gratulating President Johnson on the restoration of peace. _ -- ??? -_* "A- - - ?? -_. - - - -_ Lr^l?^r^n?. ar jg "General.li?e at tba Waf??aesB." ^e with ? look at thepic Ths idea of^the _'is fine, ?Ku?ogk, for its size, the figures are too large in the fore? ground. Little peccadilloes might also be indulged in concerning the. .large peek Of the noble steecT which Gen. Lee rides, and also with the re? strained position of one of the arms, but these little affairs are not sufficient to detract from the general beauty of the who te coup d'ouil. The old chief? tain is painted in the foreground upon his grey horse, one hand grasp? ing the battle-flag of a regiment be? hind him, the other holding his hat, and encouraging bis men to retake a battery which has just been lost, and which is represented in the distance in the hands of the enemy, who are seen working the guns for their own purposes. The end of the hue of men in the ragged grey uniform is just behind the General, and they are in the act of entreating him to' go to the rear. A wounded officer-by far the most correct and beautiful figure in the picture-lies in the immediate foreground, adding his entreaties to those of the men. The bound fore? head and tricMing blood are superbly painted, while the officer's hat rid? dled by the ball that has perforated the fine broad brow, is one of the most exquisite pieces of art we have ever seen. The painting bears now all the beauty and freshness of the brilliant ideas and brilliant colors of the artist. We trust that it will soon be placed on public exhibition. [Richmond Bulletin. THE NEXT HOUSE OP REPRESENTA? TIVES.-By an Act of Congress, May 23, 1850, the number of Representa? tives was established at 233, which number was apportioned among the several States in 1862, upon a basis of 124,183 population. Several large fractions occurring, Congress, by an Act of March 4th. 1862, gave an addi? tional member to each of the States of Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Ken? tucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont, thus increasing the number to 241. Nevada having since been admitted to the Union wih one member, the total is now 241. The present apportionment stands a fixed fact until the 3d of March, 1873. The eleven States now in process of re-organization aro en- | titled under it to the following repre? sentation: Virginia, 7; North Caroli? na, 7;. South Carolina, 4; Georgia, 7; Florida, 1; Alabama, 6; Mississippi, 5; Louisiana, 5; Texas, 4; Arkansas, 3; Tennessee, 8. Total 58. [ Elections of members have been . made for the thirty-ninth Congress in all the States of the Union, except the aforesaid eleven, and Kentucky and Nevada. Of the 208 members already elected, 144 were chosen on Lincoln tickets, and 83 by thc opposition. It is difficult to make political estimates for tho future, but, in any event, the Republican side will have a clear ma? jority of 48 in a full house as follows: Republican. Opposition. 23 States have elected.. 144 3G 2 (Kentucky and Nova da) estimated. 1 0 ll Southern States. - ? Total.14S 102 CoMEEKCiAti.-The total value of imports at Boston for the week end? ing September 15, was $562,228, against 696,646 during the corres? ponding week in 1864. Total since January 1, $18,107,579. Average amount per week, $489,394. The total value of exports for the same time, including specie, was $387,280, against $393,528 for the correspond? ing week in 1864. Over one hundred thousand dollars in gold was paid for duties on foreign merchandize in the Custom House on Monday. The total value of foreign exports from the oort of Baltimore last week was $258,672. The Herald learns by a letter of late date from Bogota, and from good au? thority, that a branch of the Bank of London, Mexico and South America will be very shortly established in New York. Thin bank has received concessions of very valuable and ex? tensive privileges from the Govern? ment of Colombia. The Washington correspondent of the New York Herald, in speaking of affairs in North Carolina, says officers just ap from the Old North State rep? resent that there is no longer a ne? cessity for a mounted patrol ; in fact, tlio presence of troops there at all is I just a little superfluous. The tar people are . devoting their undivided attention to the production of a living from their wreck of a State, and have very little leisure for .sedition and that sort of thing.

Goldsmith & Kind. Mr. Goldsmith was, as our readers will j probably remember, for a long season one of the proprietors of the so-called Sword j Factory of this place, of which establish- j mont he wsa enc of the founders. But the j sword has been turned into the plough? share throughout the length and breadth of our land, and we congratulatoour public on tho fact, that the ingenuity, industry and ability of Messrs. Goldsmith ?St Kind will now bc turned in a direction a thou? sand times more interesting and profitable to our people. Tho establishment of tho Phoenix Iron Works, which commences casting this very week, has it in purpose to preparo almost every tool and implement, however various, which is needed on farm or plantation, in forge or work-shop. Boil? ers, mills, ploughs, machines of all sorts, are in their line of manufacture. Theirs, briefly, is not only a furnace, but a machine work-shop. Their arrangements are of the most extensive order. They bring to the work, not only tho most thorough know? ledge of what is to be done, but how to do it; and they have the equal craft, skill, knowledge, energy and material with which to meet all the demands, in their province, not merely of South Carolina, but of tho sister States. Nothing can exceed the virtuous resolution with which they have pressed forward to the completion of t his noble establishment, and we trust, and take for granted, that, m the public pa? tronage, their recompense will bo fully equal to their deserts.

Soon, amid the flowers unfading, Fold thy little trembling wing, Soothed by songs of heavenly minstrels, Snch as mortals never sing*.

Grieve that Jesus took them home, In their morning's dewy freshness, From tho evil sure to come? Sorrowing parents, oh, remember! Lifo has neither joy nor resr; They shall feel, and know it, never, Folded on the Saviour's breast. _S. MESSRS. Enrrons: You will oblige thc nu? merous friends of Gen. J. D. KENNEDY, by placing his name before the First Congres? sional District for a seat in the next United States Congress. Gen. Kennedy is a young man of high moral character, great intel? ligence, of strong common sonso, and, by his past military career, has demonstrated tho fact, yon can trust him any whore as your representative. Though he was six times wounded severely, he never aban? doned his post, but stood by his colors until the surrender of Gen. Lee's army. Gen. Konnody, though ft heavy lober by the emancipation of tho negro, has accept? ed in good faith the results of the late struggle, and is for strengthening the hands of President Johnson, aud restoring the Union to its constitutional basis. Elect him, and ho will not sell yoiir birth-right for a mess of pottage. Pete_ MANY FRIENDS. Medical College of Georgia, Augusta.
