The question of a restoration of the Union like
that of the recovery of one who has been ill for a
long time, requires time, patience and. care. \t
will come out all right in the end. We hay c
passed the crisis* and are not likely to have a re
lapse. We agree with one of our ablest writers
and statesmen, that our object should be to sound
the depths of the question of restoration,, by cre
ating, as far as we can, a healthy and righteous
American sentiment. And to do this, it would
be well to Imitate the wise surgeon in his treat
ment of a fractured limb.. Let the paTts be
cleaned of all morbid surroundings; let the gen
eral system be soothed and allayed and freed
from febrile symptoms; let the diet be of peace
and fraternity; place the broken portions in con
nection; direct ell, our skill and nursing to their
cure, and Nature will soon accomplish the good
work. Who can doubt it who surveys our coun
try, far and wide, and understands the charac
ter of our people? We must not be in a hurry,
or over-anxious. We must wait and labor.

A Noble Woman.—There is now living in
Charleston, Miss Ramsey. She is a granddaugh
ter of Henry Laurens, and is connected with the
Pinckney and Rutledge families. This lady is
the owner of the table on which the Declaration
of Indepemdenoewas signed. When the ordinance
of secession was passed in Charleston, by the
State of South Carolina, every effort was made
to obtain this table on which to sign that foul and
fatal deed. Miss Ramsey not only indignantly
refused to have it taken from her house, but
threatened to shoot, with her own band, the mis
creant who should attempt to remove it. Wo
*rere told these facts by a gentleman on whose
voracity we most fully rely.
