"?nraday Morning, Ko?. 7/1867.

%Vhe Jaw of tho last Congress, to
jndBove tho suffering Qt tho-South,
^? ?signed bj tho President, on the
3BKh of last J\farch, and orders to
?eftaco operations ander it were is
nmaA to 'tho Bureau, on tho 2?th
Jka?gttst.' Relief was, therefore, af
/ Spaded ?o tho people of tho South,
?without i regard to oolor, race or sex,
%f$MX 4i period of about five months.
greater part of the reports of
'?e^ig?nt? having been received, it
?tay be somewhat interesting to note
%3*c dostr?bution of this Government
*rib?rity.
F?&ini? received $12,850; North
karolina $32,500; South Carolina
*U)4,500; Georgia $126,100; Alabama
#.?,900; Florida $1,000; Mississippi
306,009; Louisiana $25,000; Tennes
??$10,000, and Arkansas $12,000
.-???king a total of about $441,650.
At the last reports, small portions
-?of dais money were yet on, hand, but
dt xi believed that every dollar of it
?tMwH 'he required to settle the out
csSarading bills. From a summing up
'?rf .the reports, it is supposed that
<*e4ween 75,000 and 80,000 different
^parsons were relieved, some of whom
were supported for weeks, and others
'probably for months. More than
?stff of the people relieved were
?fcites. The supplies furnished were
??inly born and pork. The returns
/jude to the Bureau, give an aggre
^gateof about 850,0Q0 pounds of pork,
awod About 120,000 bushels of corn.
< "lt will bo seen from the returns,
xSka? 'Georgia and South Carolina
-T&ere the -largest beneficiaries. This
??? be accounted for by the passage
?af General Sherman's large army
through almost every section of. both
States. They certainly were the
^greatest sufferers, near the close of
?bo nvar, ?rad hence required more
from the Government
?jnlnous Sigas.
" Wo see it stated that the whites of
-Abe South have lately been asking
iih? Government for more troops, to
preserve-order and prevent riots and
-InsarrectiouB. At the same time, the
??oogreasional Executive Republican
Oommitteo have received appeals
A&cuaa-the freedmen, saying that they
. """?fcand in fear of violence, and sug
vgesting that they be allowed to form
?E.tary companies." The New York
?m?, in noticing these appeals, says:
'.lAll -this is exceedingly painful
-stud ominous nows for those who
?seek the welfare of both races in the
. ' Southland who have labored to se?
care such harmony of feeling as
would enable thom to live and labor
?stgetber for all time to come. These
Abinga aro appalling. They forebode
ta future which we would rather not
- ootitemplate, and whose horrors can
? ?o?3y .be averted by statesmanship
! ?o? .wisdom, not merely on the part
?-?ff vihe Government, but on the part
?of tho governing people of the United
?.Sfcotes,"
?Plieso reports, we think, are all
<?3X?ggerated ; but if any trouble or
'Jxfficulty should arise, the blame
mernot be laid at the door of either
. rae? South. Tho whites wero, and
.arfiOi are, wi?lmg to give to the freed
non all their political rights and
.privileges, which we believe the
USwedmen-if not interfered with by
..emissaries of the Republican party
i??uuld have acted harmoniously with
afceir old friends, in whom they had
^ann?donco, until destroyed by the
?eSbrts alluded to.
VOTING AC TBS SOUTH.-The New
Work World says:
. -"We think that the Richmond En
egmrer, which stiffly advised inaotion,
?winced more sagacity than the Rich
oBkond Whig, which counselled all tho
xsa&istered whites to vote. There
vs8 Bo possibility of beating the ra
<flioals if the full negro vote was
^Bolled; and the most effective modo
?di .opposition would have been the
total abstention."
It proceeds to give excellent rea?
rons for this decision, and concludes
M frtllrtWK
."There was no good reason why
conservatives should vote, unless in
Sic hope of defeating the conven?
tion. It would have been wiser to
^oxurendei' the whole business to tho
?egro , party, whoso extravagance,
?faeii acting without any check,
snight lead them into blunders which
~VY?uld recoil to their disadvantage."
Tbe-civivlizod world will hear with
profound regret of tho death of tho
i&ight Hon Wm. Parsons, Earl of

THOATPB?HBND?D B?TrcULTIES.
A speciol despatch to the Nov*" York
Herald, of Saturday, speaking of the
apprehended difficulties between the
races at tho South during the elec?
tions, says:
It is not impossible, either, that
the wild fanatical harangues of Hun
nicut ? Go., will be checked by exe?
cutive orders, for such inflummat^ry
utterances aro regarded by tho Presi?
dent os certain, if allowed much fur?
ther indulgence, to load to violence
and bloodshed. The inconsistency
of these military commanders in pro?
hibiting harmless lectures and sup?
pressing colleges on the slightest
pretexts of disloyalty among the stu?
dents, and still suffering tho most in?
cendiary radical harangues to be ut?
tered without interruption, is severe?
ly criticised, and regarded as indicat?
ing a dereliction of duty. A man
named Frank Ewing, of Alabama,
for instance, was sent to the Dry Tor?
tugas, daring th ? height of the yellow
fever, for speaking disrespectfully of
the laws of Congress, while Hmm ?cut
and men of his stamp are allowed to
preach sedition and assassination of
the whites at open air meetings,
withont being reprimanded or mo?
lested by the military authorities.
PAY UP.-The Charleston News, of
Tuesday, says:
"The moneyed obligations of our
merchants, which have been pressing
heavily for some time, are being met,
we learn, with that promptitude and
good faith which has always charac?
terized our business men. Tho pay?
ments for factors' acceptance have
lately boen particularly large, and it
was mentioned yesterday, that the
amount of paper payable on that
day would sum up about $500,000.
Oar planters would do well to for?
ward their crops and sustain their
credit, as they may timi that thc
prompt meeting of their liabilities,
even at some sacrifice, will iu thc
future be of important service tc
themselves.

ExriiArsKD.-On the night vi June
ll, 1844, a foul murder wns com
mitted in this city. A Mr. Lyons,
an English Hebrew, who kept a watel:
and jewelry store, and lived by him
self, on tho premises, on East Bay,
afterwards occupied by the Mercury
office, next door to tho French Coffee
House, and who was supposed to be
a man of considerable wealth, wai
found dead in his bed the next morn?
ing; with his throat out from car tc
ear, and no clue could be found tc
the murderer. A respectable mat
was afterwards tried for the deed, bul
there being no evidence against him,
he was acquitted. The excitemem
about thc murder gradually diec
away, and it was only recollected ru
a strange and horrible mystery
which had never been explained
Day before yesterday, a gentleman ol
this city received rt letter from t
friend iu Hungary, stating that r
brigand who had lately beeu execut?
ed, in his neighborhood, and wht
called himself Pappi, hael confess?e
just before his execution, that ho hae
murdered a man by the name o
Lyons, in Charleston, in 1844, whet
ho'himself was connected with a Mr
Epping, in the drug business. Th?
Hungarian correspondent wished t<
know whether there ever had beei
snob a murder committed here, ane
whether there was such a drug est ab
lishment as that of Mr. Epping
From these facts, it seems beyoni
doubt, that the mysterious murder o
Lyons has at length been explained
f Charleston Mercury.
F IKE.-About 9 o'clock hist night
Ore was discovered in one of tin
stores on the North sido of Fraser'
Wharf, occupied by W. H. Kidd ?
Co., rectifiers of liquors. Thestore
were four in number, two of whicl
were partially destroyed, togethe
with their contents, principal!
liquors, tho stock of the occupant*
We understand that Messrs. Kidd <
Co.'s stock is insured. The build
ings are the property of tho Bank c
the State of South Carolina, and ar
insured. The fire is believed to b
an act of incendiarism.

THI^UT-IAOB CW THE SOOTH CABO
I?D?A RA-IIBOAP.- Our readers will
recollect that, on the' morning of Oc?
tober 13, a little before daylight, the
eight express freight and passenger
train on the South Carolina Railroad,
from ^his city to Columbia, was
thrown off the tracie, several cars
smashed and ono or two persons bad?
ly bruised, by a rail being maliciously
torn from the track. Shortly after
tho occurrence, the military authori?
ties determined to have the matter
thoroughly investigated, and accord?
ingly _n order was Bent to Lieut.
HendricKs, chief o? city detectives,
to furnish his ablest and most trust?
worthy Officer to ferret out the ease.
He accordingly detailed officer Coats
for that duty. Thanks to that able
detective, the investigation, which
has just been completed, was entire?
ly successful; and not only has the
guilty party in th? ?fore_enticncd
outrage been arrested, but also all
thu members of a gang to which he
belonged and with whom be commit?
ted a robbery on the road a year ago.
The party consisted of Carter Har?
ris, white, a Section Master of the
road, and the following colored la?
borers in his employ: George Hays,
Wm. Kirkland, Barney Goodwyn,
John Montgomery, Edmuud Thom?
son and Holland Trenholm. John
Montgomery and Barney Goodwyn
had been discharged from Harris'
employ some time before the accident
to the train, and Montgomery, in
confessing that he tore up the rail,
endeavored to implicate Goodwyn in
tho transaction, and stated his motive
to be revenge on Harris for discharg?
ing him. He was unsupported in
this by any of the others, but all con?
fessed complicity in a robbery near
the same place about a year ago,
when a train was broken open and a
bureau and a quantity of groceries
taken from it.
The case has becu examiu< d by
Gen. Canby's Judge Advocate, who
recommends that the prisoners be
sent to their respective Post Com?
mandants to be tried, and also that
tho law of North Carolina in relation
to the punishment of persons ob?
structing railroads be extended, by
General Order, to South Carolina;
the North Carolina statute being
more complete and minute thau that
of this State. His report has been
approved by Gen. Can by.

THE PoBr's MEMOBY.-We aro gra?
tified to announce that Prof. Rivers,
of the South Carolina University,
will deliver a lecture, on Thursday
evening next, November 14, at
tho College Hall, in the Campus, on
the lifo and writings of Henry Tim
rod. It is a fitting tribute to the
memory of one of the brightest intel?
lects, and ono of the truest poets the
South has ever produced. We trust
that our community will demonstrate,
by a large attendance, their apprecia?
tion of this welcome tribute to tho
memory of the deceased poet. It is
understood that this is but the begin?
ning of a regular series of lectures,
to be delivered by the Professors ,of
tho University; to whioh there will
be no charge for admission.
SCHOOII BOOKS.-Messrs. Appleton
& Co. advertise in our columns a long
list of standard educational text
books, many of which are well und
favorably known in the institutions
of learning throughout the South.
This publishing house has done
much for the interests of education
throughout the whole country, by
selling their school books at mode?
rate prices, and getting them out in
neat andsubstautial style. We hope,
therefore, that their works, edited by
the most competent scholars and
teachers, will continuo to bo exten?
sively used. But still, we would be
gratified to see some efforts made in
this direotion by Southern teachers
and people. As the Richmond Dis
patch remarks, the South would bo
wise if she were to manufacture at
home every article of every kind that
she needs. This is as truo of school
books as of brooms and buckets.
We shall never advise our people to
prefer a worthless Southern bock or
broom to a valuable Northern one.
Like the Dispatch, howover, tho rest
being equal, we shall always advise
them to buy tho Southern book or
broom.
In former days, all such advice
was considered purely soctioual uud
as contributing to sectional strife;
now, however, this charge cannot be
made. We desire to see the South
make every effort to render herself
independent-not only of the North,
but of overy other country, as every
community of enterprising people
should do. It is our duty to keep all
the monev we ru?n At. hotcc; but it i?
still a higher duty to incito our peo?
ple to habits of industry and self
reliance. Let our learned men and
our teachers go to work and aid in
this great work of recuperation.
