Vim regret to announce the death

of Virginia, bat lately a resident
of Warren county. He diod of

W were pleased to meet in our
aanctum, Col. D. Wyatt Aiken, of
the Rural Carolinian, published at
Charleston, South Carolina. He Is
taking a flying visit lu the interest
of his most excellent magazine.
Our readers will refer to our nolioe
of it in the issue of March 9th. We
urge our people, the planting com
munity especially, to subscribe for
this periodical. It 1 oue of the

adapted Jo Southern wants.
A W.r wllk the Times.
The editor of the Vicksburg
Timet, whose life Is bent to loyal
duty, devotes nearly a column to
the Lauderdale affair, the Gazette
and our duty in directing the peo
ple as to the course thoy should
pursue In checking crime partic
ularly In cases where a white man
kills a negro. This is the burdih of
our neighbor's song, and be waxes
eloquent orer It. He wants no
"Idle diatribes," but with a little
small discerning, and a hatful of
what Davenant calls the " miuds
Immodesty," proclaims in favor of
"proper terms and plain English."
lie attacks us rigorously the left
hand rushiug irantically through
bis hair and the right scattering ink
drops of sense and leaning, ,roth
and wind, at the "stuff" which ap
peared iu tho Gazette. And he does
all this, too, without glviug his read
ers au opportunity t pats Judge
ment upon the "sniff' lie couiieoius.
Our neighbor looks at .it with blear
ed beauiH, garbles a sentence or word
here and there and then pronounces
utirullty! A jury of his own rend
ers might havo found a dill'orcnt
verdict. But seriously, the Gazette
never attempted to gluts over the
Lauderdale killing; we have pro
nounced against such lawless out
rages all along, and iu our first no
tlcetlie Lauderdale killing was
styled au "assassination" a term
probably strong enough for the
stomach of the Times. We want to
do equal and exact justice to all
men; td protect industry and quiet-
tude against vagrancy aud turou
lence. We do not wish to abridge
the black man's life or liberty, nor
will we countenance it in others, but
we are white men and tberepreaen
tatives of white men, and have
grown weary of the howl raised over
a DiacK miu s wuruor, sua me si
lence that is observed when a negro
murders a white mm or outrages a
white woman. We will go hand
in hand with the Times or any
other print Id Ciiiu.u out crime
when "color" is not t the founda
tion of vigilance. We fully com
prebend our position as a journal'
1st and trust so be ever louuti rat
tling In truth's bold cntise to rouse
each fearless heart."

It should be gratifying, and
must be so to every thongbtful!
mind, to note the activity of the,'"
railroad interest of this 8ute.
We may lay aside other consid
erations, those of private, Individ
ual or local gain, and look only to
the good to result to the people at
large, as well as to .particular sec
tions. These railroad enterprises'
may prove losing affairs to tome of
those who engage iu Uieni,aKhough
we doubt it, but the majority of
these routes must eventually prove
richly paying investments and the
rebuilding of our State.
Several of these railroads are
leading from Vicksburg, and have,
as objective points, New Orleans,
Grenada and Memphis, and In ad
dition, the Shrcvcport and the
Little. Rock routes. Wo also bear
of several other routes, or exten-i
slou of routes. Among thee are
the Elyton and Aberdeen, Jackson
and Natchez, - the Meridian nnd
New Orleans, the Ship Island and
the Urcuuda and Houston. It may
be that in some of these cases and
for private reacons of self-interest
and profit, "airy nothings" are re
ceiving "local habitations and a
name ;" but generally these routes,
at least all those mentioned are
bona IlJe ones and are destined to
enure to the propriety of their
protectors and the welfare of the

time, should our government prove
to be oue of justice and fostoring
care, before traffic and travel over
the new routes prove remunerative.
These roads, also, are projected
through the richest counties
of our state, and no sooner
has tho way -been opened
than settlers will engcrly seek
the lauds bordering upou this path
of the iron horse, aud if our people
are wise aud far seeing they will
afford these immigrants opportuni

by Increasing the value of their

We call tbe attention of capital

great commercial centre of tbe
State and of the cotton belt, at
well as being the radii of several

unnecessary. When the high
handed outrages of scalluwags and
carpet baggers can excite tho vir
tuous indignation of their own
party, then, indeed, there seems
some hope for us.
We may safely say the tlay is
clo6o nt hand when that detested
class of Ilndicals nt the South
who now rule w ith such unblush
ing effrontery, shall liido their di
minished head in Inglorious
shame, and the pcoplo breathe
freely betauso relieved from the
awful incubus of military despo
tism; or forbearance will cease
to bo a virtue.
'Tho whole process, since the
Senate decided to begin recon
struction in Georgia the second
time, has been one well calculated
to alarm as well ns disgust every
friend of free government cm this
continent. It hns consisted in the
surrenderor a great community,
fresh from a civil wfir, to probably
as bnd a lot of political tricksters
and adventurers as ever got to
gether in one place, to have all its
places of profit ami trust scrambled
for by them under military super
intendence, and by means "of
nearly every devise known to the
gambling house, the mock auction
room, the thimble rigger s table ;
nnd nil this in the presence of a
large, newly enfranchised, and
very ignorant constituency, to
whom the very form of govern
ment, not to speak of its princi
ples, arc still unfamiliar. And to
make the shame aud humiliation
all the greater, nil this has been
done under tho pretence of eslab-
liHlmi-r "a Keuublicau form of
government, " and scouring "equal
rwht for nil." Wo must sav, that
wo think the silence or acqui
escence of tho Republican press,
with a few honorable exceptions,
iu this disgraceful procedure, does
it little credit, and certainly has
not helped the party, as, time, we
know, will show."
"The cry now comes from
Washington that not only ought
the Binuhnm amendment to be
struck out of the bill, but tbe
whole State ought to be Tclegnted
to military government; pure ami
simple, And Itcpt there for the next
four years, owing to the ontrnges
on the lino of the Brunswick and
Albany railroad, and the threats
or the "rebel press" as to w bat
they will do when they get the
Slate into their own hands once
more. Wo should like to ask, so
riously, those who talk in this
way, whether they really, believe
that at the end of tbe four years
the condition of publio sentiment
iu the State would be any better
than it is now, or as good ?
Whether they ever heard of a
community being trained into
pcaceabloness, love or order, and
respect for law by a "military
government," which was simply
another name for the rule of a La
ted and despised faction, composed
largely of worthless adventurers ?
Whether there is any State in the
Union In, which people's blood
would not be made to boil in their
veins by such a spectaclo in their
Capital as that which Georgians
have been witnessing, in theirs
during the last three months?
Whether they really believe In the
old European doctrine that men
can be cudgelled and bayoneted
into good behavior, aud have to
tally abandoned the American
one, that all the olitlcaland social
virtues, like nearly all tbe other
good things of this world, are
the results of growth, and slow
growth too? How long' do they
think the political habits of the
American people-whieh have
hitherto been the salvation of the
Government their respect for the
forms of lnw, their love of peace
ful discussion, their willingness to
abido by the results w elections,
their confidence in oflleliu integri
ty, will survive if the policy now
pursued or threatened, iu ..Geor
