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?
..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.
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.

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?
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.
