Secretar jr Boat well's Prog n amine for m
Xt?st?m to Specie Payment.
A speoial despatch to tho New York
World, dated Washington, November 20,
From semi-official sources, I have as?
certained that, alter somo consultation
with .leading,New York bankors and also
with Western financiers, Secretary Bout
well has deoided to submit at an early
day-probably In his annual report-tho
following programme for o return to spe
cie poyments to the consideration of
1.' Tho national bauka to redeem their
notes for greenbacks by July 1, 1870.
2. The.Government to redeem its
greenbacks in gold after January 1,
3. Free banking for all parties upou
bonds bearing interest at four per cent,
4. This point is not quite settled.
There is some division in regard to the
question whether the banks shall be per?
mitted to insuo notes as DOW, or whether
the United States shall take charge of all
circulation by the issae of greenbacks on
a plan somewhat similar to that of the
Bank of England. It is, however, un?
derstood that no greenbacks of a smaller
denomination than five or ten dollars,
will be issued.
The free banking clause of this pro?
gramme, which finds great favor among I
those who have beon permitted to seo it,
was inserted to satisfy tho Western
States, where the greatest obstacles to
a resumption of speoio payments now
THB IMPRESSION ABROAD.-With re?
spect to Gov. Scott's recent proclama?
tion in relation to affairs in Sumter, the
New York .Repu&Jic says:
..What is this reference of Gov. Scott
to the possibility of a resort to 'tho same
summary process,' other than an encou?
ragement to retaliatory and vindictive
measures in the administration of govern?
ment in that Stole? We declare unhesi?
tatingly that this ia an outrage against
saoiety, even surpassing tho deeds of
which the Governor professes such ab?
horrence." I.} - M

JUST SO.-Some irate "Uniou soldier"
having raised a disturbance over some of
Mosbyfs exploits, the gallant partisan
defends himself, and then adds:
"I think it high time for a people who
glory. in 'Sherman's march from the
mountains to the sea,' in which he made
a desert of the country that lay in his
track-who received with huzzas Sheri?
dan's triomphant despatch 'that he had
burned 3,000 barns and mills, and made
the Valley of Virginia so desolate that a
crow could not fly over it without carry?
ing his rations'-to oeaso objecting that
anybody did not observe the rules of mi?
IMPORTANT CASE.-A case of much im?
portance was before tho Supreme Court
of tho United States, on the 22il. The
title of tho case is Hickman against
Betta and others, on error from the
United States District Court, Northern
District of Alabama. Hickman sued de?
fendants for malicious prosecution and
false imprisonment. lu 1803, pending
the war, Hickman was indicted in court
sitting under Confed?rate authority, for
treason against the Confederate Govern?
ment. Upou this charge, be was arrested
and confined'in prison from January to
May in that year, and on his trial and
acquittal, was discharged. He was sub?
jected to heavy, expense by the employ?
ment of counsel and other causes, and
his snit is to recover that amount and
damages for his imprisonment.
Some of .the d?fendants had acted as
grand jurors in the Canfederate court,
und in that character found tho indict?
ment, and other defendants, under the
samo authority, made tho arrest. They
defended themselves upon two grounds:
First, that the court was a leg .1 oue, be?
cause established by a Government de
facto. Secondly, because tho plaintiff,
as they alleged, had participated in the
rebellion. Tho court below overruled
the first ground, and ruled upon the se?
cond that, if the jury found that the
plaintiff was not, during the entiro re?
bellion, loyal to the United States, he
eould not recover, and tho jury found a
verdict for defendants ns to the loyalty
Wo the United States of the plaintiff.
There waa conflicting evidence, and
there was evidence from which, it was
said in argument, tho jury might have
found that, although the plaintiff was
at first disloyal to the United States, he
in good faith returned to hi3 loyalty
and continued so until the close of the
rebellion, and tbat this was his condi?
tion when he was indicted and arrested.
The case was argued by Hon. Reverdy
Johnson, for the plaintiff in error, and
submitted on brief. Richard W. Wal?
ker and George A. Gordan, of Alabama,
counsel for defendants.
It will bo soon, that both questions
are of great public interest. The first
Involves fhc right of secession and the
legality of the Governments established
under it, and tho other whether a party
originally concerned in rebellion, could
not resumo his loyalty and have tho
protection of the Constitution aud laws
of the United States.
An old lady, ou being examined as to
her place of legal settlement, was asked
what reason she had for supposing her
husband had a legal settlement in that
town. The old lady said: "He was boru
and married there, and they buried bim
there; aud if that isn't settling him there,
I don't know what it ia."

South Carolina Monamrnl Association.
Women of South Carolina, there needs
no urgent appeal to your sympathies in
a cause so sacred as that which we now
undertake. Tho great tide of adversity
which lins swept over our unhappy land,
has hitherto stifled effort in this direc?
tion; but not, therefore, have our hearts
ceased to beat for the glorious dead.
Scarcely is there one among us whose
thought does not, on the first mention
of our object, turu at once, with loving
affection, to some grave which this
monument is intended to honor.
Mothers, widows, sisters, daughters,
whose hearts thus cling to tho soldier's
grave, let us then unito with an earnest,
loving effort in this holy duty. Let even
our lisping little ones be brought to give
their mite to its accomplishment; that
thus impressed upon their minds, they
may never forget to love and honor tho
memory of thoso who battled and fell in
our cause. If a lost cause, even there?
fore the more holy. Even therefore
does it hecomo the more incumbent upon
ns, to bring to this great sacrifico of pure
purpose aud heroic deed, that homage
aud veneration which the world pays
only to success.
With the wish that all who have shared
in a commun sorrow, may sharo also in
the privilege of raising this testimonial
to our lost heroes, the annual subscrip?
tion for membership is put at the lowest
point practicable; that thus it may be
within tho reach of those, who, having
little to give, havestill the right, through
tears and suffering, to join us in the ful?
filment of this most sacred duty.
To all others-men as well as women,
old and young-to all who cherish the
nnmo of Carolinian, and cling with a
fond love to whatever is left to us of our
"good old State," wo would say, givo to
us freely according to your meaus; give
generously; give gratefully to the memo?
ry of thoso who gave their lives for us.
J. J. Wright, the colored Sonator from
Beaufort, requests us to say that thc fol?
lowing were his remarks concerning
largo tracts of land, in a recent address.
The statement iu the Charleston News,
of the 25th, being incorrect:
"He said that as long as a few owned
all tho lauds, tho laborers could not be
elevated as a mass as rapidly as they
could if the lands were more equally
divided, a? in tho Northern States. He
further states, that if there could be un
equitable way devised to sccuro to every
industrious person a piece of land, he
would joyfully join in so doing. He said
further, that the laboring man was just
as reapec*Til.!c ... .iit lawyer, or those
who wore silk gloves, and that every
good citizen shouhi S?? regard them."
