COLUMBIA. . Sjmday VQrnwg, August 1J, 1867. . Abiding[ rf??tl>. Oar cotcmporary of the Charleston Mercury, in discussing tlie question as to when a revulsion in feeling al .tho North will come, has the follow? ing paragraph: ..There is nothing to ho gained hy" kicking 'against, the pricks, and we care not to trust to a hopo that a moment niay sweep away. It maybe*" that the Northern people amrmore. cruel in spirit than they were two years ago-(hat they are more dis? posed to crush us now than they were six months since. It may be that Congress but represents the feel? ing of its constituents; that it is bot the moderato niouth-pieco of in? censed Northern opinion. It may be that measures harsher- than any of which wo yet.have knowledge maybe proclaimed against us; that confisca? tion, incarceration, banishment may brood over us in tnrn. But -Ul these things will not change onr earnest belief-a belief ; as earn est as ' our '.be? lief in our own hoing-that lliereioill bea revu?ion af popular feeling in the North, and that diere will be a tide in our affairs, upon die bosom of which our people may safely ride to fortune." For some years before the war, and for all the dreary years since its com? mencement, we ' have hoped-al? though we must confess not with a --very Kvoly faith-to see and realize its 'benefits, this long-promised re-aotion in the popular feeling at the North. But every succeeding opportunity these people have had to manifest this popular feeling, it has only de? veloped as more deep-rooted and bitter than those which went before. Experience has taught us and the Southern people not to "trust a hope that a moment may sweep away," ?and which has been swept away so .often, that we thought no sensible man could ever bo induced to trust io it again. No, the only "tide in our affairs, upon the bosom of whieh onr . people (that is to say, the present generation,) may safely ride to for? tune"-good or bad-is to mount the platform, or clamber into the raft, which Congress has constructed for us, and make tho best of it, using our exertions in the most efficient me? thod to reach a harbor of peace. This thing of waiting for "a revulsion of public feeling" at tho North is all moonshine, and has already led tho South into almost inextricable diffi . cullies, and brought upon her de? voted head all tho innumerable evils she now groans under. -?^?? Register! There is ono thing that we - desire io call the attention of all our read? ers to, und that is, that tho more act of availing themselves of the privilege of registration does not commit thom toan endorsement of tho reconstruc? tion Acts, or to voting for a conven? tion. It is simply au act of qualifi? cation, conferring upon them tho right to vote as they please on tho questions at issue. They should bear in mind that, having registered, they can vote for or against a convention, can select their men to represent them in that bodyj and can vote to udopt or reject the constitution it may sub? mit for their approval. This is an important point for those qualified to consider. The mere registration of their names does not' commit them one way or tho other, and, indeed, if they choose, they may refuse to vote at all. But, by registering, they will have secured that option, whereas the neglect to do so preoludes them from exercising their judgment at the ballot-box of either men or measures, and disquali? fies them from voting for or against either, so long as theso laws ure in force. Register, then, if you do not go near the ballot-box, and thus pre serve to yourselves tho highest privi - loge conferred upon tho oitizen. -----?-* -? Agrave mistake-accidentally bury? ing a man alike. _J_ I ' Southern Manufacture*. Tho Now York Herald think? it strange that it does notihear of ex? tensive investments, powerful com? panies and great schemes for tile introduction of manufacturing estab I Hshments in the Southern States, j from cotton and woolen - factories, ' from iron and steel* to loather boots .andshoes and faming, implements. It says very .truly, that the Sooth bas not only the fineBt j region in ; to? 'VtnMTt?T cotton growing, traf "the best facilities un cl greatest advantages far cotton manufactures to.ajiy ex? tent," and.adds, that from its 'gene? rous soil and mild winter climate, I men can live more cheaply and real 1 ize largor profits from manufactures j of all kinds than can be made in Now England or Old England, if thoy only go properly into the business. The Herald then says that meu of capital, looking about' ?or-Mnvest ments, will find their best field in the Southern States. No paper knows better than the Bferald tko true position of the South? ern States at the present time. All that is said in the editorial to which we allude is true, and it has not over? drawn the picture in its statements of tho resources of the South. She does present the best field for investment (as well in manufactures as in agri? culture) that can bo found anywhere; her resources, both as regards her soil and its abundant products aud her mineral wealth, aro boundless j but, as the Herald well knows, they [ are not available, because capital and labor will not come to the rescue. The Herald is not ignorant of this state of things, and the expression ? that it thinks it strange that such and ? such things should not be, is merely i a sort of prefatory introduction to the subject to which attention is to be called. If the Herald, like the immortal "J. N.," the peripatetic philosopher, could "lift the veil and remove the pressure," its glowiug predictious ol the future of the South would no doubt be speedily realized. But her [ future is closely veiled in obscurity, while tho pressure on all her ener? gies and capabilities is crushing iu itt effects. Patience and endurance maj soe the accomplishment of many ol the brightest predictions which hav? been uttered for the South; but oh how many of ber people, in tho mean time, will sink, never to rise again beneath the buffeting waves of at undeserved adversity.

MEAD'S GRAPE CULTURE.-The full title of this new work is "AirElemen? tary Treatise ou American Grape Culture and Wine-making," by Pe? ter B. Mead, illustrate- with nearly 200 engravings drawn from nature. A handsome octavo of 483 rages, just issued by Harper & Brothers. It treats of all the facts and prin? ciples involved in grape-growing and wine-making, laying them clearly in order before the reader, and link? ing them together with just so much of the theory as is necessary to ex? plain lucidly their relations to eaoh other, and unite them in the mind of the student in one harmonious and systematic whole. The author, a practical wine-maker, claims to have given in this book a simple record of his own practice aud experience, stating no fact that he bad not re? peatedly verified, and which may not be repeated by others with like re? sults. His idea is, that any man with common sense can, by the aid of this book, raise good grapes and make good wine, anywhere in Ame? rica, South of certain Arctic localities. He explains bow to lay out vine? yards; how aud when to plant vines; how to train them, giving pictnres of different kinds of frames, and how to trim and teud them; how to manure the different varieties; when and how to gather and preserve from decay and insects-and, in a word, all that the grape-planter need to know. He then gives n detailed descrip? tion of the different varieties of grape, from the Iona, which is the best American grape, down to the Neff several hundred in all. He tells how to propagate the grape-vine by bud? ding, cuttings, layers and grafting. The various tools and implements needed in the culture are described and given in pictures. Diseases and insects are discussed carefully. The chapters upon wine-making treat of tubs, crushers, presses, casks, vats, sacoharometers, thermometers, siphons, cellars and bottles; of fer? mentation?, racking, second fermenta? tion, sulphurizing, sediment, lees, clearing, adulterations, coloring, gul lizing, and a lot of other things that tho wine-maker must know. Making wine, however, is not the only object in raising grapes discuss j ed by our author; but table use ol grapes is carefully treated, and thc varieties best suited to this use are pointed out in tho chapters on va? rieties. Upon the whole, the author strongly urges upon Americans tho expediency of grape culture and wine-making, both as a means of relieving the country of the spurious and adulte? rated wines that aro now BO exten? sively used! and ns a means of realiz? ing handsome profits. The book is to be bad in Columbia at Duffie & Chapman's bookstore. The price is ?3. Messrs. Daffie & Chapman have placed on our desk a copy ,of Peter? son's Ladies' National Magazine tot September.
