TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12,1866.
[From the Washington National lulelligencer.j
There aro some people who talk of the
South as if they were v race of semi-bar
barians. Very true and very sad it is to
know that terrible disclosures have been
made of brutal acta which occurred du
ring the war. And for men of such
deeds we have hearts all pitiless. But,
nevertheless, the poetry of the South is
not dead ; its sentiment il uot destroyed.
The elasticity which pertains to it is fast
rebounding towards the condition thut
signalized the better days of the Repub
lic, when the colder but truer North
loved, perhaps too blindly, the Southern
intellect and Southern romance. It was
our pride to speak of her great names
and to elevate her great sons. It was our
delight to open wide tho doors of hospi
tality to their social Incomings], and we
always parted from the'in with reluc
tance. There was a dash and fervor, an
epic vein about the Southron, that had
dazzling charms for us of a colder
clime; and what we only gave iv
deference, from respect, and out of
social affection, our often misguided
brothers esteemed to be the homage of
inferiors, because it proceeded from a
class of people who felt that the true
dignity of life was in the daily discharge
of its practical duties—duties that per
tain to labor, and which the plantation
life of the South led them, too frequeut
ly, to despise. They did not know how
the North was veined with valor and
chivalry throughout its granite. But
the war has taught them better to appre
ciate that section of the nation whereon
really rest its material foundations —the
fountains of industry, of invention, and
» education. They find that the
ankee" has patriotism and courage;
that he has skill in diplomacy and force
inarms; that he is their Anglo-Saxon
brother; that he is of a race upon which
no blood can look down, and that has
not degenerated. This stern introduc
tion has come from such as shock of arms
as mankind never before have witness
ed. And now that the sun of peace ih
shining forth again, let us not forget to
foster the bright things that its beams
are calling into life. The dark cloud of
slavery has burst and is exhausted. It
has proved to be the very curse, nation
al and social, that Jeflerson predicted
that it would be. Tiie nemi-rebcllious
training taught by some old-time South
ern politicians has yielded to the broad
and clear lessons of that Constitution
which sprung out of the old Confede
racy, and which created us one people.
And now once more the birds arc sing
ing and the turtle is heard in our land.
From out the repulsive ruins of a system
which was never American, and which
has goue down amid the thunders of
war, we see here and there the green
and lovely tilings in tho South that are
born oft_at«cnrimfi»- which Is a distin
guishing feature of the Southern people;
it colors their oratory, it drapes their
literature, it speaks in their domestic
and social relations, as these exist !«•
tween the whites, and it marked their
desperation iv a battle fought wholly on
an abstraction, a plucking up, even
from the bottom of the sea, of fancied
honor by the roots. This magnetic
power in the South lent it great force as
well as a great charm. It wooed the
sentiment of the North and wedded it,
so that among our youth of both sexes
there always existed devotees who felt
its influence and who followed the
Southern lead blindly. And this feel
ing prevailed to some extent during the
war, and up to a period till the South
seemed reckless and ruthless.
But now that the Southern heart is
chastened its sentiment is not dead. The
mere vanity of that people has, it is
true, received a well-needed and humil
iating lesson. But vanity is at best a
small vice, born of adulation and admi
ration, and the North is greatly respon
sible for its cultivation in Southern soil.
A manly pride, a high-toned sentiment,
a deathless valor, springing up out of
this war, and centred iv a common
patriotism, are the fruits, yet, as we
hope, to mature gloriously, and whose
young shoots we see springing even
thus early over all the South. Let us
cultivate such a sentiment by such
American interchanges of affection and
of magnanimity as will fall upon the
souls of that people witli a conquering
force that does not lie in bullets ami in
steel, whichat most can kill, while love
and a wise and prudent generosity sub
due and rie/fjierate the fallen, the sul
len, and tbe desperate, and thus create
for all the inspiring hope of a happy fu
ture under the stars and stripes, tin
loved symbol ofourinfaiicy. from whe*
folds only can be gathered the exaltei
Influences that belong to our comiuoi
traditions. We have but one oountrj
and but one people. Let each be grap
pled tot'iuh with hooks of steel, grap
pled by a cement of patriotism as stronj,
as are the natural links of mountains, o
lakes, and of rivers that unite th- me
tjoiis so indissolubly. In such a work
the heart ami the sentimentof thcSoutl
are indeed elements of restoration not ti
be disregarded, if these can only •»
thoroughly purified and rigidly direct
cd. And do not. all the signs say tint
the hour of Southern redemption draws
nigh? __ ...

The Nature of Di a monks.—The

agency, as they become black when sub

That they are,on toe contrary, of Nep
tunian origin, and were at one time in
a soft condition, Is proved not only by
the impressions of grains of sand anil
crystals on the surface of some of them,
Kit ulsoby the enclosures of certain for

Senator Sherman, of Ohio, Chairman
'the Senate Finance Committee, In a
teeCh on the first Instant, at RavenJSa,
hio, said in" relation to the taxation of
lilted Slates bond.- by States and munl
palities, that it cannot ho done without
versing the often re-allirmed decisions
! Hie Supreme Court, ami affecting the
onstilulional power of the government
> borrow money on the credit of tho
United States. He regards the proviso
i the loan laws exempting the bonds
rom State and municipal taxation as no
lore than a notification to the holders
f their legal rights, ami that no such
tax could have been levied by the State,
yen had the proviso not been inserted;
i this opinion following the decisions of
te Supreme ('Ollll, and the reasoning of
•hief Justice Marshall. As to negro
uirrage, while Senator Sherman does
ot express himself opposed to it, he rc
'iirds it as a nuestion to be decided in
the future, after the freedom of the
American lias been assured to him. Its
solution may probably be readied
through the proposed alteration of tho
basis of representation. The first busi
ness in hand, however, is to see that the
proclaimed freedom of the negro is as
sured to him by the confirming action
of the States seeking renewal of their
relations to the Union. The question of
the separation of the races lie assigns to
the future for settlement. Its impracti
cability now masfes it of no Immediate
concern.
Among the basements which wero
rilled with water during the singular
rtortn which burst over Philadelphia on
Monday, was one in which Iwo babies,
win boys, were sleeping together in a
cradle. As the room was entirely Hood
ed, it was supposed of course that the
Shildren were drowned, and the mother
lad fainted with grief, when faint cries
told the household that tliey were still
alive. The cradle had Heated on tho
surface of the water. As quickly as pos
sible the carpet in the room above was
taken up, and a bole cut through tho
floor, while this was being done there'
were no more cries, mul an ominous
stillness in the basement chilled all
present with apprehension. At lasl the
floating cradle was reached end pu/led
up, when it was f»«»«l thai the wavea
had tucked the babies to Bleep, aodlhoy
were rtuietly sucking their thumbs iv
happy unconsciousness of danger.
The following curious calculation, says

nection witlt "Arrab'tia-Pogue.'' It is
now simultaneously performed in Lon
don, Manchester, BeW York, San Fran
cisco and Melbourne, Australia. Wo
say simultaneously in so far that to-day
it will be played in three quarters of the
globe. Hut the difference in time be
tween the cities named has this singular
effect— that "Arrah-mvPogue" is being
played all the day long, for when the
great tower scene is reached in Man
chester and in London, Arrah's cabin
dooris first opened before her friends in
New York, and when Die New Yorkers
