Sunday Morning, August
The South ?nd Ute Presidency.
Whether the South ?will have any
participation in the next Providen?
tial election, is more than any hu?
man being can tell just now. But it
is well to note the signs of the times
in relation, to the matter, and that
our people should be keptpoated np,
so that, if the opportunity should bo
presented to them, they may, to
some extent, be cognizant of politi?
cal movements.
One of the most significant indica?
tions of political tendencies, is to be
found in the tact that the Mobile
1 .nes, a genuine conservative jour?
nal, has nominated a "Union Con?
servativo ticket" for the Presidency
and Vice-Presidency of the United
States. Its candidatos are General
Ulysses S. Grant lor President and
Senator W. P. Fessondon for V?oe
President. The term "Democratic''
is dropped and "Union Conserva?
tive" substituted. And the change
is a good one. The Northern Demo?
crats have no claim, as a party, to
the unreserved support or adhesion
of the Southern conservatives, and
for the latter to support a party (if
they should ever get in a position to
do BO) whose success is extremely
doubtful, would be a sacrifice which
the Democracy of tho North has no
right to expect. They have no claim
. of gratitude upon their former allies
in the South, for they made common
cause with the power which brought
tho latter into her present miserable
condition. They abandoned the
cause of State rights, for it is not to
be denied that that causo was one of
the most prominent in the late sec?
tional struggle.
It is, then, tho part of wisdom, on
the part of the Southern people, not
to place any confidence in the rem?
nant of the once powerful Demo?
cratic party of the North. It is
powerless to accomplish any good as
a party, and it would bo merely wast?
ing any political strength the South
may have in the future, to attempt to
bolster it up. The honest restoration
of tho Union, and the support of
measures for its preservation, are the
only prominent issues of any value
now to th? Southern people. To
attain these and kindred incidental
measures, there must be a union or
combination of conservative men
throughout tho country, under the
lead of some prominent man. Gen.
Grant may bo their chosen repre?
sentative, and to him we ure disposed
to believe the people of the South
the conservatives, wo mean-would
have no objection, for there Ls but
little doubt ho would bo mighty to
aid in the restoration of our distract?
ed nationality.
the celebrated trotter, made a heat,
in Buffalo, on thc 14th, in tho unpre?
cedented time of 2.17}.{-a second
and a quarter ahead of the best time
over before made. Bonner, the
"Ledger" man, was so overcome by
tho race, that ho immediately pur?
chased tho littlo nag, at the modest
prico of $30,000. Dexter is to be
delivered to his purchaser after the
Chicago races, when he will bo retired
from tho turf, unless he should be
occasionally exhibited at tho Buffalo
fairs. Bonner has a ponchant for
fast horses, etc.
Mr. B. McCall, a well known broker,
of Broad street, Charleston, was
struck with paralysis, a few days ago,
and died Saturday morning.
GEN. LEE.-Tho Greenbrior (Va.)
Independent speaks of a modest visit
paid by Gen. Leo to a friend in Lew?
isburg. A number of ladies and gen?
tlemen called to see him, but, in de?
ference to his wishes, the citizens
refrained from any public expression
of their regard and affection. No
one had tho bad taste to introduce
tlie subject of politics, and the war
was, if mentioned at all, only inci?
dentally referred to. Tho Independent
"Wo havo been roliably informed,
however, that whenever Gen. Leo
does refer to tho political condition
of tho country, he advises a submis?
sion, in good faith, to tho result of
tho war, a strict obedience to the
laws, and that everything which
could be tortured into an evidence
of continued disloyalty, should bo
Ott?? Trw? Policy.
Some ot tho Texas papers say that
c. "little farm woll tillod" will h&vo
to become the motto of a good malay
citizens of that State, before they will
bo able to solve the labor question.
One of these journals says that the
idea of large plantations and large
orops to any one man or manage?
ment, is obsolete., These times and
ideas have passed away, probably
We learn further, that some of tho
large land-holders, in Ked River
County, have adopted the idea of
leasing all their lands, and in order
to procure tenants, they have built
tenements for occupation by the
lessees, and it is asserted that those
who have done so aro the most pros?
perous portion of the planting popu?
lation. In another County, (Lamar,)
the planters are cutting up their
large plantations into smaller farms,
erecting houses on them, and now
call for emigrants who are willing
to work. These lands will either be
sold or rented on easy terms, and
provisions being abundant and cheap,
there is little doubt but that they will
shortly be occupied. The evil of
holding on to large tracts of land is
illustrated by the discouraging spec?
tacle that presents itself along tho
road betwoen two towns in Texas, on
.which not more than one-fourth of
the rich, well-fenced fields of prairie
black lands are well cultivated the
present season.
This policy of sub-division of largo
tracts of land is the true ono for
Southern land-holders, in all our
States, to adopt. It would be one of
the ?most attractive inducements to
foreign immigration, would securo a
population that we need, and would
develop the producing powers of our
public lands to an extent that wc
have never before witnessed. "Line
upon lino, and precept upon pre?
cept," holds good in the labors of
the Southern prees to induce the
people to secure tho greatest benefit
from their innumerable resources.
Taxation ?nd Repudiation.
This question of repudiation wor?
ries Mr. Greeley. He calls those in
favor of it "villains," and says that
any Republican or War Democrut
who lends the scheme a shadow of
countenance, proves himself "an
ingrate, a villain and a fool. " Now,
this language implies that the repu?
diation party is not so contemptible
in numbers as wo had supposed it to
be. It would not be necessary to use
such langnago in speaking of a few
hundred crazy partisans. The very
words used imply that the plotters for
repudiation are neither few nor un?
known. Tho wrath of Greeley was
excited in this way: The Herald had
the other day a letter from a Western
correspondent, win) says tho Western
Democrats mean to run George H.
Pendleton for President, and to elec?
tioneer as disclosed in the annexed
paragraph :
"They are beginning to agitate'the
policy of a repudiation of the na?
tional debt, a complete wiping out of
all our liabilities, and a recommence?
ment all round under a return to a
specie basis.
"The boldest among the Western
Democrats do not hesitate to openly
avow the doctrine of entire repudia?
tion. They believe that it will carry
the masses with it, and sweep every?
thing before it. 'Go into any public
meeting,' say many of their promi?
nent men, 'and you will find nine
teuths of those present in favor of
repudiation.' Ask them why they
should grind out their live3 and pinch
their families in order to pay tho
debt incurred for a war which they
bad no hand in making, and which
has only enriched tho politicians who
brought it upon us, and they will
nearly all range themselves upon our
side. Still tho cautious pobticians
desiro to approach tho subject by
more indirect paths. Tho policy they
now advocate is the wiping out of the
whole national debt by an issuo of
greenbacks to the amount of twenty
five hundred millions, cancelling all
the interest-bearing bonds and stop?
ping the circulation of tho national
banks, thus saving the country the
twenty millions annually squandered
upon those institutions. This is well
understood to bo tho programmo
upon which Pendleton is to bo put
forward for the Presidential nomina?
tion, as foreshadowed by tho position
of his confidential organs. But be?
hind this stands the ultimate result
of repudiation, which will bo render?
ed moro easy of accomplishment
under the depression which such nu
inflation would occasion in the na?
tional currency,"

Charleston Mercury, UruflflBglj
accession of Gen. Grant to the. War
Department, and the causes for con?
gratulation arising therefrom, says:
"The other cause for granulation,
is the order from Gfen., Grant," as
Secretary of War, nullifying in * this
department the order of Gen. Sickles,
suspending executions when conflict?
ing with tiie, process of the United.
States Courts. Here is an affirma?
tion that 'the so-called States' are
States of the United States; and that
the law of Congress putting them as
States into judicial districts is the
law of the land, the reconstruction
acts to the oontrary notwithstanding.
It practically affirms that the recon?
struction acta of Congress are uncon?
stitutional, and overthrows the posi?
tion he assumed in his reply to the
Charleston Board of Trade-that
these States are conquered Territo?
ries, constituted by the reconstruc?
tion acts Military Districts, over
which his will is law."
NOBLE SENTIMENT.-The following J
?B from the August number of Hie
Land We Love, and was brought to
memory, says the editor, by the j
name of one of the President's bonds?
"A Northern man married in our
native village a Southern lady, and
died soon after the marriage. The
widow discovered, in looking over
her husbaud's papers, that ho was
indebted to an Abolitionist, at the
North, in tho sum of $1,000. She
told her administrator that there
must uot be a stain upon tho memory
of her husband, and proposed selling
her house and lot to pay the debt.
He wrote to the creditor, stating the
destitute condition of the widow aud
her honorable intentions. For an
answer, be received a letter enclosing
the note of the deceased husband as i
a present to the widow. Tho name
of this generous creditor was Gerritt
Smith, of Now York. lu a private
letter to ourselves, be says: 'It is
timo for men to quit bating, and
learn to love one another.' A truly
noble sentiment, to which every true
soldier, North or South, who did his
duty in the field, responds heartily,
FINANCIAL..-The Now York Herald
Money continues superabundant,
at five per cent, on mixed collaterals,
and at four oMcGovcrntneuts, while
tho lending dealers in Government
securities aro enabled to borrow large
amounts at three per cent. This ex?
treme case gives courage to the ope?
rators for a rise on the stock exchange,
and hence the market rallies quickly,
which it would not do if the mone?
tary conditions affecting the stock
exchange were less favorable, for
prices are high in relation to real
values, although it would not bo sur?
prising if they went higher. Tho
demand for discounts is light, and
first-class commercial paper is quoted
at 6(7/ 7 per cent., with most of the
transactions at G1?. The fact that
about $35,000,000 of compound inte?
rest notes mature on the 15th instant,
appears to exert no material influence
either in checking or stimulating
speculation in stocks. The crop pros?
pects continue encouraging, and in
sections where the wheat bas been
harvested, it is reported to have been
secured in excellent condition, while
tho yield per acre was abovo the ave?
rages of late years. Other crops pro?
mise equally well, including corn, and
a cheerful feeling prevails throughout
the West, where money continues
unusually easy for the season.
York Times, of Saturday, says:
"The sharp risc of nearly two per
ceut. in our five-twenty bonds in tho
London market, within a few days,
is, doubtless, owing more to the un?
precedented plethora of unemployed
money than to any new impulse that
has been given to the public confi?
dence in our credit. With the pre?
sent rates of money in Loudon, and
with the extreme difficulty of using
it at ?ll, tho inducements to make
such a profitable investment as is of?
fered in our five-twenties must be
very strong; and wo have no doubt
that if our political affairs, North and
South, were in such a condition as to
give us an assured credit before the
world, we should soon find our bonds
rising to something Uko their as?
sumed value. They have a long dis?
tance to travel yet before they get to
that point."
SHARP.- The New York Tribune
gives the Herald the following nudge
under the ribs:
How happens it that every rene?
gade from radicalism is BO vociferous
for Grant? What is "tho mystic tie
that binds" our Weeds and Burdetts,
our backsliders from everything Re?
publican but the loaves and fishes, in
such loving accord, that Grant is our
only man for President? Is not here
incitement to profitable reflection?
Ono M. Buroau is said to have
made $600,000 out of tho Vera Cruz
Custom house, pnd then mizzled to
Franco. We have a good deal of
Bureau furniture in this country, but
not quite so movable.
The Nek York Tribune, of Wednes?
day, says:
Republicans in Tennessee are con?
vinced that the disfranchisement of
white voters might be to a great
extent repealed with general ad?
vantage. Prominent men at Nash?
ville are urging Gov. Brownlow to
convene the old Legislature for this
purpose, and as the Governor has
already expressed himself in favor
of amnesty, there is good reason to
hopo that Tennessee will speedily
prove that the triumph of justice
ia also the triumph of charity.
Orleans Times says:
Now that ho is "i* the vein," the
radical reformers and Southern re
domptionists might influence the com?
manding general to "remove" the
cotton worm. It is certainly an
"impediment" to reconstruction.
CANDIDATES OUT.-We hear it ru?
mored upon tho streets, that several
freedmen of this District, have been
seized with office on tho brain, and
have como out as candidates for the

nature has yearnings for office.

have received a communication from

which we extract the following:
I send enclosed the roll of honor of
Chicknmauga's battle-field, in which
you will find South Carolina's list,
which wo hope you will give to your
readers, that friends and comrades
may do us tho favor to correct mis?

from tho faded and woru marks upon

dowu and being trodden under foot.
We aro making every exertion to

and, under other circumstances, Geor?
gians would have been but too proud
to bavo done this entire work them?
selves, and would scorn the proposi?
tion to ask aid of her sister States to
bury their dead who fell within her
borders; but in tho present financial
as well as political prostration, we
cannot hopo for farther legislative
appropriation, and as the work will
not brook any longer delay, we are
forced to call ou the friends of our
cause, independent of State lines, to
enable us to go on with this work of
love and duty. Wo aro well aware
that no more inauspicious time could
have been selected to raise money
than tho preseut, when our poor
country is so impoverished; but when
we come in the name of our dead,
asking only for a grave in consecrated
grouud, will we ask in vain? Could
woman's hand do this work-could
thoy bear these skeleton forms from
the battle-field to the ground we have
prepared for their reception, at Ma?
rietta-wo would have no need of mo?
ney ; there would be volunteers enough
in Georgia to do this work of love
'.without money and without price."
But this cannot be; we must have
men's work and labor and teams,
and this must be paid for, and
for this we beg your assistance.

right to register, because they volun?

Such men should be informed that
such service (even if they held office
in the Confederate service) does not
disqualify them for registration, un?
less, before the war, they had held
tome office that required thom to take
an oath of allegiance to the United

militia officers before the war are not
disqualified. B.
