Gav. Perry's Secoud Letter.
Wo extract the following article
from tho Carolina Spartan:
Gov. Perry has written another
.letter on tho subject of tho recon?
struction bills, addressed tc tho Co?
lombia Phoenix, in which ho reiterates
his long and faithful devotion to tho
Union, and that ho had raised his
warning voice against secession and
the fatal delusion of forming a South?
ern Confederacy; aud wo know per?
sonally that ho had repeatedly de
olarcd that the extinction of tho
.Union would be the death-knell of
slavery. This is all true, and if the
love of a Southern mau for the U.iion
could entitle any man to tho honors
of canonization, universal consent
would decree and award to Gov. Per?
ry that saiutly honor. His elegant
manhood and large patriotism is
known of all men, und equally so aro
his Northern proclivities. Therefore,
no ono cnn doubt that whatever
' counsel he may give, looking to a re?
storation of tho Union, his intentions
aro puro and his declarations aro sin?
cere". But Mr. Perry's purity and
sincerity, his lovo for the Union, his
prophetic reach, his high sense of
honor, his jnst indignation against
tho atrocities of tho military bill, his
devotion to liberty and love of South
Carolina, cannot and Will not save us
in this hour of trial. His caustic
utterances of hate and detestation are
appreciated and felt by the people of
the South as ho feels them, foi*, in?
deed, the destruction of the Stnte
Governments of the South is tho
most atrocious crime that tho world
has ever witnessed. But what then?
What are we to do? Who is to deli?
ver us from this hateful thraldom?
Gov. Perry deems it his duty to offer
his counsels "to the people of this
Stato in tho* emergency. We know
of no other leading mau of South
Carolina who gives the same advice.
And what is that? It is simply, that
every man who is not disfranchised
should register hts name; that when
the elections aro held he should vote
for the best and wisest men, but
write on his ticket "nb convention."
Well, what then? Why, wait until
something turns up, that's all. We
think this is the substance of Mr.
Perry's advice, and in his second
letter he has said no moro than he
did in the first. If the white people
of this Stato opposo a convention, it
is as much as to Bay to the freed?
men, "You shall not have tho right
. of suffrage if we can prevent it."
No one can doubt, under these cir?
cumstances, that every freedman
will vote for a convention ; ho will not
stop to ask whether it be constitu?
tional or not, that he should have the
right of suffrage, therefore he will
vote for a convention, and delegates,
The letter states that there aro 60,
000 colored and only 40,000 white
voters in this State. It is very clear,
then, that if every vote cast by white
men in South Carolina be against a
convention, a convention will be called
notwithstanding, and delegates elect?
ed, too. However wiso and patriotic
a candidate may be, it cannot bo ex?
pected that tho freedmen will vote for
him if he bo opposed to tho culling of
a convention, which ho vonld consi?
der an effort to deprivo him of a pri?
vilege already grauted him. Instead
Of uniting with the white people to
make tho best selection of candidates
. for both rnces, it is more than proba?
ble that the freedmen's candidates
would bo the vilest and most bitter
enemies of the South. The large
majority of whito. citizens, and a
unanimous vote of tho freedmen, for
a .convention, is sure to f?evail; and
Gov. Perry's plan onl^afcvides the
white vote?, 1SfLjilsb.it unites tho color?
ed vote,'Indifference or aversion will
not turn the tide now rolling over us;
Stato pride or self-respect affor? us
no forum where tho claims of truth
and justice can bo heard-no tribunal
to which we may appeal whoso power
can redress our wrongs and restore us
to our rights. Anxiety now murks
the features of almost every man and
woman in the land, and doubt and
uneasiness prevails everywhere, break?
ing up tho chanziela of trade, destroy?
ing commer?a and crushing the spirit
of enterprise. Gov. Perry dwells
much on tho words principle, honor,
justice, &c, which is all very well.
But it nppeors to us that tho aboli?
tion of Bbavery, now and forever, and
tho endorsement of tho civil rights
bill, by a convention of tho Stato of
South Carolina, whilst Mr. Perry was
Provisional Governor, and in which
convention and itu ordinances ho
stood prominently forth as tho lead?
ing man of tho Stato, iucurred a re?
sponsibility as ruinous, degrading
and dishonorable, ns it would bo to
adopt the reconstruction bills. That
convention entailed ruin and poverty,
not only on ourselves, o\\$ on our
children. Tho reconstruction bills
Sroposo to restoro us to that Union
Ir. Perry loves so well on the terms
of equal suffrage. Our freedmen owe
their freedom to tho Convention of
tho Stato of South Carolina, and not
to the Yankee. Ho has been made
legally nud politically equal to Mr.
Perry or any of us; nud Mr. Perry
himself promoted and quietly sub?
mitted to tho usurpations of thc Pre?
sident and Congress.
Tru?t Itt Providence.
At a mass meeting recently held iii
Petersburg, Va., Captain Johu Lyon,
in tho course of a speech, made the
"No man, who has not lived in a
slaveholding community, can npin-C
ciate the sacrifice of feelings mid pre?
judices, tho result of birth and edu?
cation, necessary lo bring a whole
community to occupy tho position
which wo avow, und tho purposes
which wo declare to-night. Wo are
not guilty of tho folly and wicked?
ness of declaring that wc havo pre?
ferred tho condition of affairs that
now exists. Our short-sighted wis?
dom, so-cnllcd, would have led ns to
different results, lint we behove that
11 'A Prpviuoiico that shapes our ends,
Hough hew them us we may.'
"And wo prrofess our willingness to
accept what is tho result of what infi?
dels call destiny, mid Christians call
Providence, and will try lo exercise
statesmanship enongh to adapt our
policy to tho actual condition of so?
ciety, with a view to its highest de?
velopment, aud greatest happiness
"Men of sense, both white mid
black, hold in scorn blatant dema?
gogues, who falsely say that they
havo always desired what all mon
now recognizo as inevitable. With
tho exception of a handful of earnest
and honest men in thu North, whom it
has been fashiouable to call enthu?
siasts and fanatics, there is and bas
been no party, North or South, that
intended, or even desired, the result
which has so unexpectedly burst
upon us all Tho children of Africa
have not to thank men for their free?
dom and 'enfranchisement. Their
gratitude and praise aro due only to
the Most High, who (in the language
of the Psalmist) has brov^ht them
?ip ?lao cut of au horrible pit, out of
tho miry clay, ard set their feet upon
a rock, and established their goings.
They have found by their experience
that "it is good that a man should
both hope and quietly wait for tho
salvation of the Lord." And as surely
as the Ci ? od Father of us all hath
heretofore caused the wrath of man
to praise Him, so surely will He now
and hereafter restrain tho remainder
of wrath, and defeat tho purposes of
wicked men who seek to sow tho
seeds of distrust, suspicion and re?
venge in the hearts of the two races."

Fou PEACE INSTEAD OK WAR.
Tho New York Nation has some sen?
sible remarks on tho condition of
affaiis in Europe, and tho immense
preparations being made for war by
all the great powers. It says:
Tremendous as aro tho military
preparations of tho great powers in
our day, there is no question that the
enormous increase which we witness
iii tho size of armies, is in roality a
fresh guaranteo for tho peaeo and
prosperity of tho world. It is a
Curious but instructivo fuct, that tho
length and frequency nnd destruc
ti veness of war havo "declined in tho
ratio of tho increnso and effective?
ness of armaments, and that when
the King of Prussia takes tho field
with half n million of mon, he is not
half so formidablo a foo to industry
aud civilization as Francis I, . or
Charles V, when ho went warriug
with his 30,000 or 40,000.

THE NASHVILLE GAZETTE.-Our
clever cotemporary of the Nashville
Gazelle seems to be enjoying himself,
notwithstanding" tho rather unpro?

"Wo understand that tho autocrat
of Tennessee contemplates organ?

land forces. Two old steamers are to

A scheme is projected in somo of

on tho amouut of all sales effected,
for the establishment of an asylum.

The New York Herald say s : Tho

aw'ay or obstruct tho constitutional
rights of the people. They aro there
only to preserve the peace and to see
that tho reconstruction Acts of Con?
gress be not impeded iu their opera?

the officers in command in the South
and tho people not to look at them
in any other light.

tion that tho medicino called tho "Queen's
Delight," as prepared by "Heinitsh,".ac?
complishes moro for suffering humanity
than any other remedy now in uso upon
tho face of the earth. This fact, and the
wonderful ceres it performs, is corrobo?
rated by living witnesses. The theory in
this: No disease can bo cured without
cleansing and purifying tho blood, which
is tho fountain of Ufo. This combination
of alteratives nnd depurativos produces
just that chango in tho functions of organs
as to mako a healthy action to take thc
