MAGNANIMOUS TEMPER OF THE SOUTHERN
PEOPLE.
Tlie subjoined article from llie New York
World contains man}' just statements and in
dicious reflections, winch wo trust the Adminia'.ration
aud llio people of tlio Nortb geucrnlly
will calmly ponder:
l'J^e .bearingof the Southern people under
their defeat and the immense loss of property
involved in the emancipation of their slaves,
is ?iore genorous, manly on<J sclf reepecting
than we hod any reason to expect From the
. I'oiomac w me uio urnnMe, tltcrc is not a
j single guerilla band nor any demonstration of
| roftintntico to tho Federal authority. Tlie influential
statesmen of tlie South and their trusted
military leaders, are dtsi oaed,- to a man,
to acquiesce in re union and make the best of
the situation. Geo. Lee, whom the Southern
people almost revere, is an open applicant for
pardon, and lends his weighty exwnplo to a
iiuccre and faithful submission to the laws.
Oen. Johnston, who stood next to Lee in
Southern consideration, has publicly given as
rutionnl advice to his fellow-citizens an could
; have Wen dictated by the staunchest friends
j of llie Union. Alt* P?yce, of South Cniolinn,
Governor Brown, ol Georgia, and other
I Southern statesmen of equal distinction, have
| mad* a<]i)r<-B3e* counselling acquiescence in the
i aholi ion of slavery arid lealty to the Federal
I Government. The Southern newspapers are
, altno.-l lini versully conducted in the same ad\
niiralile and manly spirit. There is uo con[
lumncious aulleuness,' no captious defining on
ihe 0onstftutinn, no Tefractory assertion of
I wiivri'i^niy, uo uarsu criticism Of Urn
policy of President Johnson, none of tlic
iinnghlv tone of self assertion once eo char;
ct?ri?tic of Southern public men. -And yet
there is nothing servile or craven in the general
tone of oequiescence and submission. It
is the simj)le manifestation of good sense and
imtiily feeling, which nceepta the inevitable
without womanish petitionee and seekf, io a
straight forward uiauncr, to adapt itself to the
I actual situation.
| As Americans, the South lnts eiven as no
; reasons to be asluuncd of our countrymen,
j They made, to be sure, a terrible mistake in
I going into this contest; butoucc in, they boro
| themselves with a resolution, pallantry, per
I *1311-111'!.- in n uoeuiy 10 eacu oilier, wluctl (lul
| no <iiceri;dit t?i Un;h- public spirit and soldierly
, qualities. The herculean and protracted exertion
we wen* compelled to make to subdue
I tliein, r.ttost tlu-ir vigor and ardor; nnd alter
ao tough h contest wc cannot deny them the
I possession of great qualities without hurailiaj
ting self dispurtgenjent. But the frankness of
ilicir submission, when they saw they were
| beaten, is as conspicuous n proof of magnaj
nitnity ns the chiva'rio determination with
i which they fought against superior odds. - It
! adds to our sense of national strength that, in
! future wars with foreign powers, wo shall
luiyo the support of uien who understand so
well the dntivs of soldiers and citizens.
Considering their present admirable bearing,
OMghr. wc to treat Ihem as friends or as enemies
? When we separated from Great Britsiu
we proclaimed to the woild, in the Declaration
of Independence, that wo should hold the
Britons, lik? other foreign peoples, "enemies
in war, in.peace friends." Shall wo treat our
own repentant brethren with less magnanimity
Lhan foreign nations practice toward each
other? Having treated these bravo nnd misguided
fellow cnuutryinen as enemies in war,
shall we refuse to treat them as friends in
peace! Why should ?>ur newspapers teem
with calumnies ou their character'? When

System, what sense. what magnanimity, what
decency even, is there in Bul-j eting them Jo
needles* humiliation find indFguities i Nobody
fotM a iitw rebellion; nobody believes that
the fiRnk submission of the bouth is feigned;
and it is unworthy tho character of a yrent
nation to practice n mean, suspicions, and irritating
eurveil aneo over a proud mid spirited
community who bear toe'trtatfves with such
sense and belf- command undei?- o?e of the
greatest trials through which any people.was
ever callcd lo pass.
Beloved Brethren.?The eveuts of the
last three months have placed our couutry
in greatly altered circumstances. The fortunes
of war have brought us again under
Federal rule, and it bccomes us to act wisely
in our now new relation?. The stars and
stripes again wave over us?'tis i.ow our national
f}?g, and should by us be revpected
accordingly. 0ar lopd anticipations of a
s?y>erate nationality have, in the Providence
of God, been disappointed, and it becomc3
U3 to submit quietly to this providential
award.. Wo havo maintained a
long una oioouy struggle; our soldiers have
fought bravely, and although forced to sub
rail to overwhelming numbers, yet we have
lost no lmnor, dUr enemies being the judges.
?Now tnat our armies have been pm&erly
surrendered, and our brave soldiers rWurning
home, it is our duty to acquioscequietly
in what Provideuce seems to - have ordained
for us. Let us all deport ourselves
as quiet, peace loviog, pSace-makiog citi
zens. Let us, as far as practicable, try to
forget the wropgi we have suffered from the
Northern people, and henceforth to cultivate
the spirits of peace and good neigh
borhood. This is both our duty as Christians
and our interest as citizens.?We
hope that none of our people wilf for a moment
couutenance bushwhacking pr guerila
warfare. These Are wrong in principle
and practice, and whatever apoloev men
may have made for them during the war,
there can be none now. Above all, let no
paroled soldier violate his parole by uniting
in such enterprises. The oath -on
which youl- parole was given was a solemn
appeal to God, and it m&y bo violated with
impunity#-, .
There are . Federal soldiers. stationed
among yoy, and this, perhaps, will be neoes3nry
for sometime. Cultivate kindly
feelings towards them. So far as I havff
observed their deportment*, they seem dUoosed
to ha ord*rl?r. T n* '

who, at home, are members of the chtfrcb

THE .HOME OF PRESIDENT JOHNSON.
R^v. Randall Ross, chaplain of the 15th
Ohio regiment, writes an interesting letter
to the Unite'] Presbyterian, descriptive of
Greenvillo, East Tennessee, tho homo of
President Johnson. The place contains
only about one thousand inhabitants, and
consists of four squares, with streets run
mug nirougii ui, rigui angles, llio writer
mentions the principle buildings?church- !
es, taverns, the "old mill," etes, end also i
note9 the spot in tho garden of Mrs. William?,
where John Morgan was shot and
mortaWy wounded by a Union soldier.
He was phol while crouching under n
grupevine, and the vine has aftico been cut
away by soldiers who have takeu the"cut?<
tings" to plant. Mr. Uo?3 then continues:
But Greenvillo is esDcciiillv noted nrwl
honored a9 being tho homo of Andrew
Johnson, present President of the United
States. This renders this village interesting
to all, and everything connected with
Andrew Johnson's residence in it is of the
deepest interest to tho American people.
Many years ago, on a certain evening, n
rude, black-headed, black-eyed, good looking
boy, said my informant, drove into
town with a poor old horse in a little ope
horse vehicle, in which he had his mothor
and ft few household things. They succeeded
in securing an humble habitation
V.T, Tl.: 1 .1- ?. _t :?*
VJ luiibi aiiio ickuiau, tuo IIVAI UUJUW was
to secure labor by which to live. He began
to inquire for tailoring to do. Ilis
youthful appearance made it seem to be
somewhat of a risk to put cloth into his
hands. His honest nppcijr.ince, together
with his anxiety to obtain work, however,
induced an influential citizen to give him h
coat to make for himself, with the advice
to do his best on it, and if he made a good
job of it he then would have no difficulty
in getting work. Ho did'his best, be sue
ceeded with the job, and ho began immediately
to gain the confidence of the public
and to gel plenty to do.
This was the first appearance of Andrew
Johnson in Greenville, Tennessee, and this
was the first job ot work ho did on his
own responsibility. The first house he lived
in I am told is not now standing. Ho
was industrious and attentive lo business,
and he succeeded well. In process of time
ho was married. Tlie marriage ceremony
wns performed by Mordecai Lincoln, Esq ,
said to be a distant rela'.ivo of iho late
President Lincoln. The house in which
ho was married has been removed.' At
this time my informant lold mo Andrew
Johnson could not read, and was taurritt tr> i
road by his wife ufu-r their marriage.?
Things prospered villi him, antl in due
time he became abl.e to own his own house ]
and lot'.
Just down there at the b.iso of the hill
stand* a small brink building, with a back
porch, and aroijpd it the m-ccssary fixtures.
It stands on t!io corner of the square, near ^
where the mill race passes under tho street I
on its way down to tlie "little mill.
That is the first house ever Andrew
Johnson owned. It now. belonir* to jinntli. i
er person. But down there about dut; i
West from wliere I sit, and almost directly j
opposite the mill, whose Icrtje wheel is still j
moving, but whose motion id scarccjy per- j
ceptible, you will aee a rather humble, oltl
fashioned looking, two-story brick house, j
standing near the South end of Main
street. I'. has hut one .entrance from the
street. In froftt o'- it stand three cr four
small shade trees. Tlio fenegs of the lot
and windows -of the house show evident
signs of dilapidation, the consequence of
rebellion. Like in:my olh.-r windows in
the Suuth, a numbofcof pancs-of glass ate
broken out and their placcs tupjdicd wiih
paper. Glasa ? oald rtol be obtnined in the
Confederacy. A-5 you paii? along tlip pave
ment on Main street, by lookm?; into ibe
lot you tee several young apple trees, nnd
in tlie spaces between two ot them are potatoes
growing, In tlie rear of flic kitcli
en stands a small appon shado tree, and
down there in the lower end of tho lot is
a grapevine, trtyncd upon a trellis, forming
a pleasant bowor. k
Scattered over the lot aro a number of
rose, enrranfc and gooseberry bushes'. At
the-lower end of the lot and just outside,'
stand two large weeping willows, and under
their shade is a vory beautiful spring. This
is tbo residence of Andrew Johnson, Presdent
of tbe United S.ates. Up tho street
stands bin former tailor shop, with tbe old
sign sin: on it. And in an old store room
uf^ftrfcet is the remains of his library. At
pretent it consist" principally of'law books
aDd'pnblio documents, most of bis -most
valuable boojcs having been destroyed by
the rebel soldiery.

tnec|iii(r recently hold in New York, fpr the
ostensible purpose of raining funds ond taking
other steps to eecuro to Mr. Davis a fair trial
before a oivil court, is exciting tho Northern
journals. They abound in the sworn account j
of eavns-dry|>j:ers and others ns to the "treasonable"
reniarEs of the periono engaged in it.
What motive* prompt the pnrt:es we cannot
