Henry H1. 11usband4,
Gov. fcswieevy's reply to this
tologram was as follows:

It is interestilg tu reenAl inl this
connection that tho last time a mass
meeting was hold and such a do
mand wias made upoa the Governor
for tbc return of a prisoner, was
.about 11 years ago, when the people
-of Lexington so act:d in the case of
Wade Loaphart, v negro. Every
assuranco was given tho lt Gov.
Richardson that thU prisonerl would
bo peorfectly safe it. Lexington jail
and that no lynching would be per
mitt(d to occur. A committee of
citizns camo lie: and took the
prisiner over, plvd'ing his safety.
11he manl was soi.t. back and the
hlyncing, which r.iie could havo
prevented, took picac.
The physician at. ihin poitontiary
is giving the wounded prilsoner most
1careful attention. TIhe man's leg
was not amputated c.esterdaoy as was
expecated, the mani's conidition being
such as to make the- operat ion v'ery
risky'. It is doubt.d if he will re
cover from his woun?.!s.

Mr. E. HI. Lue--s telegrap)hs us
from Florence: "The great majority
of lawv-abiding ct.izens approvo

Sheriff and1( do not sianction and did
not tako part in meeting held last

tak ing all possible precautionis to

the Sherift did his ~idy as an officer,
.and in cooperating with him and as

to do so. It would bo well to avoid
it, ill their gathering tognther. Gen
(tral Gar11field wnw tid, inl tho Hou1Se)
of Represen',atives, assailing tho
Southern member, th.at thero could
be no common ground of settlement
until "Wo (of the North) who ho
lievo that Wo wer otornally right,
t you (of the South) to admit that
you were eternally wrong." Well,
we of the South will nover do that,
and you of tho North mayi as well
coaso your importunities inl that di
rection. Wo of the South beliove
that our cause was just; and that it
was overwhelmod by numbers. That
cause wias not t]ho incident of
slavery, but local solf govornmont
and constitutional libert.y. Never was
that camuse more vital than it is today.
Never wis coi,stitutioal liberty more
zc-iously imnaed by the Northern
faction control !ng the government.
Even Senator Hoar admits that. If
the empire bo established here on a
falso system of Republican govern
mont, wvlo will doubt the verdict of
1istory as to the cause of the Con
feceracy. And it is "the cauuse, not
the fate of the cause that is glorious."
At Ant iotamu, not long ago, a inon
umont was erected to the B3lue and
the Gray who fell there. In his ad
dress on that occasion, Govornor
Smith said: "It is the only instance
iln the woerlds history of a single men
umnent, being erected to those who
fought eahih ot her ont the Iieldls of bait
tie." in the.battle of Antiotam, as
in many other battles of the Civil
wvar, Americans not only fought
against Americans, b)ut foreigners as
woll1. The ''Confederate Hand book,"
of which (Jol. Robert C. Wood, oi
New Orleans, is the author, states
that there were 404,000 foreigners in
the Union army, not includlilg 186,
000) negroes. Trhe seceding States
of thg South also supplied the North
with 317,714 soldiers. "The Fed
er al government," decla resi Col. Wood,
"'could have placed in t he field an
army 212,014 superior in nlumbler to
the entire Confederate forces with
out onlisting a single man from the
Northern Staros." The total enmoll
moint Federal soldiers dluring the
Civil wvar was 2,778,:300, and the
number of pensions now oni the gov
ernent rolls is nearly 1,000,000.
These ligures show the tremendous
odds against which tho South had to
contend and the extent to which Eu.
