Wiiy Dou'l You Name the Day.
I've waited long enough, Kathloen,
Winters fairly past,
me ifunos are piayiug on ine gro^n,
Tho swallows come at Inst.
Tho vino is leafy round my door,
The blossom's on the Way,
The waves come dancing to the shore?
. Why dou't you name the day ?
Yon know you put me off, Kathleen,
Until the earljwpring;
. The skies are tranquil and serene,
The bees arc ou the wing.
The lisher spreads his little sail,
The Mower's on the liay,
The primroses blossom in tho vale?
"Why don't you name the day ?
The thrush is building in the thorn,
Among the whispering leaves;
[ The lark is busy in tlio corn,
The Martin 'neaih' the eaves.
The iittlo birds don't build in vain,
Their mate&donT say them unr?
Beware ! I uiay not ask again;
? Why don't you name the dhy?
There are $40.000,OoO itricla;n?c<T deposits
in the savings bank" at New York.
These millions have been accumulating
for a century or-more and arc now regard*

of the country. Perhaps he
has a right to do it, but we submit Bill,
that yojir attempts at "harinojiizfng" are
not likely to succeed, while you are indulging
in such terms as calling the
Union men of the South "tories'i and "sick
hearted fellows," and the Union
men of the North' ."black republican
"r? i.i A 1 _?r
p,ups." xsecause you couiu uox kui ou
"your enemies as fast as they were im*
. ported, is no reason why you should keep
up an ill feeling, which true men are trying
to smooth down. Do you expect to
bette? the matter by the use of such langunge
as this:
?I'ru thankful I ain't a black rebublican
pup. I? m thankful that Thad Stc^
>venB and Summer and Phillips nor none
of their kin ain't no kin to me. I'm
thankful.for tho high privilege of Latin
all such."
You undoubtedly Lave the privilege of
hating whom you please, but will quietness
?7er come while you and those of
your friends who h^p as you do.'givc
such expression to their feelings. Again
you say:
Well, .if the war is over, what's the
use offilin up our towns and cities with
soldier* any longer. Where's your rekonstrufction
that the pa pets say is going
on so rapidly ?" 4
"Then what's the soldiers here .for?
what gooj are they, doin?who wants to
see 'cm nky longer. Everybody is tired
of the watand we don't want to see any
' more signi of it. The niggers don't
want 'em fcid the white men don't want
'em and for the wimtriin?whoopee."

.. Supposing that Harper's Weekly does
all that 3*ou say h is doing, are you doing
any better by writing such letters as the
one we have alludtd to ? and suppose the
peoplifof the Norfh jyho loved the old
flag and government under which they
were born and whottuck to them through
thick and thin, eviace a laudable euthu*
6iasm.over everything connected with
the suppression of-your rebellion, i6 it
necessary for you to speak of it in this
manner:

The faet is, Bill, simh fellows as you in

do more to keep up an ill feeling between

didewt live in Cliatfc?inoogy, and I dident
have no "Gazette. .For about three months
you bullied us in your paper to your entire
satisfaction.' Until Mr. Johnson
sorter took up for us, you never sent-a
sheet to llptnc that dident hurt our feelins
and bore into our-hearts like a cotton
gimlet. Von copied from, Yankoo papers,
and it seemed to be perfectly congenial
with your sentfmentp.
Well, sur,-wob|fc it like an Injun.?

our gravc-yahls wheWpm unburied
our dead and sunk your rifle pits;
where you broke to'fragments the iron
railing and 'ocfk the very tomb-stones to
put in your fortifications. We read your >
exaltations of Northern bravery and
Southern treason, and we skorncd you
from the bottom of our hearts. Now
when of'late an liiuuLle individual makes
bold to bust his biler and express his
sentiments in two brcef letters, you get
up like a sanctified preacher and read him,
a public lekture about hormonizin. Gentle
sur, it don't bekum you. When I,vc
insulted you about 2.000 times wc will
be even.' But I don't iutend to insult
you at all. If you are an honest man
and a generous conqueror, I ain't after
yon. When yon make an effort to con- .
vince Harper's Weekly and the black
republkins that onr pe'oblo, from General
Lec and Mr. Davis, down to tfffr high
privates, are just as good, and brave, and
honorable as they are, I'll harmonize
with yon. '
But gentle sir, haven't you spread
yourself too.far from home? What have
you been doin about liarmonisin your own
people? Our little burnt city is fast filling
un with your best citizens. During the
war you let- em stay, but after *tlio war
they are forced to leave. Like exiles, they
are seeking refuge in Ofierokee, Georgy,
and there stands your papej^fkc a lauql*

Mrs. Van Winkle, a refugee lady of
Charleston, who has been-residing near
Lester's Factory; and another lady whose
name was unknown by our informant.
They met thfeir deaths instantly, the hack
falling upon theui. There were five others
in the vehicle, who were "severely but
not fatally injured.'
Wo gain the above from a letter written
by Col. R. P. Goodlett to his family,
who was in a .hack just ahead of the one
in which were the unfortunate perrons.
No blara^is attached to Mr. J. P. Pool,
the owner of the hacks, as everything
in his power was done to prevent the- sad
occurence. . ' .

B. Q. Humphcys Governor elect^ Jack- ,

The troops will be withdrawn from ]

be maintained without them. Every step }
will be taken-while tliey are there to en- ,
force strict discipline and subordination (

There can hu no other or greater as- ?
surance given than has heretofore been
on the part of the President or Government.
There is no concession - required
on the part of the people of Mississippi
or the Legislature, other than a loyal ]
compliance with the laws and Constita- ,
tion ot tho United States, and the adopt- c
ion ot such measures giving protection to (
all frcedmcVi an'd freemen, iii person and ]
property, without regard to color, hs will f
ehtitlo theui to resume all their coDsti- g
tutional relations in thtf Federal Union. 1
The people of Mississippi may feel well \
assured that there ts tro disposition arbi- ;
t'rarily on the part of the Government to (
dictate wlia^ action.should be had; but, t
on the contrary, to simply and kindly
jidvisc a policj'.that is believed will re" i
suit in restoring all the relations winch \
should exist between* the S,tatc3 compos- 1

It is hoped they will feel and appreci- c
ate the suggestion herein made?for they ,t
are offered in that spirit which should
pervade the bosot; t)f all those who. desire
peace and karjnony and a thorough j,
restoration of the Union. ** a
There must be confidence between the ^
Government and the States: while the
Grovcrmcnt confides in the people, thepeople
must have faith m the Government.

To the Honorable the Senate and House

Gentlemen: In- obedience to yonr
directions, I forwarded to tie Secretary
of State a certified copy ot' }tlrc
Constitution of the. United States
abolisliinor' Slavery^ I bad 'previously
telc'grajibed Mr. Seward-that the amendrocnt
bud been adopted by you, and in
Teply he stjjjed tllat "the President and
the whole country are - gratified that South
Carolina lias acceptedb- the Cons'tittftion
abolishing slavery. , j
* I hove likewise. communicated-to tlie
President your resolutions in reference
to the postponement of the sales of lands
in Beaufort District, aud have the gratification
of informing you that I have
heard, through our agent at Washington,

In rcgly to my letter to the Secretary
of the 'Jre^sury, in relation to the State
of South Carolina assuming her portion
of ihc direct tax, and giving her bond
for the same, I have been info! hied thatthis
cannot be done "unless sanctioned by*
an Ac? of Congress." The letter of tRe"
Acting Secretary of State is herewith,
sent you.
I have received no communications
froiff London in reference to the bonds
of South Carolina, due in England, which
are herewith-sent you fur consideration.
The bondholders propose "that'the whole
arrears and the dividends to Jannury
18G7, inclusive, should l>e -fuuded into-a
bonded uett, carrying the' same rate of
iu"tefekt as the bonds of- stocks, on which
the arrears-.have accrued. That a-sinking
fund shall bo established (accumulative)
of two per cent, per annum, which,
n a five per cent, stock, will pay off the
debt in twcr.ty-fivc and three-quarter
veal's.'' You will probably receive ,a "
communication from the South Carolina "
Railroad Company in connection with
tlr's bonded debt, ns^ the State has en- ;
dorscd two millions of the bonds of that |
Company, which fall due in January!
if xt.'ai.d no provision has been made for
their payment by the Company.
1 forward you also* the resignation of
the State Audit. r, James Tapper, Esq?
with his views as to the continuance of ,
the otllce. He thinks the office un-- ,
iic'Ci Esnry, and at some future time he 1
will make-a report on the serious matters
cojuutcicd with the "Giecy.
I hope yon ill appoint an early day
for tlie inauguration of the constitutional
Governor. The commissions of the
members of Congress have to he signed
by him, and if they are lo be in Washington
at the opening of the season, I hey 1
will have to leave here iti two or three
Jays. ' . '
1 have been iris'rnc-od by the JVesi
ib-nt "to remain in the exercise of my 1
Functions as provisional Governor, until ;
icli< ved by his express directions." But ,
ifter tlic Governor elect has qualified, 1 (
ihall recognize him as tlie Chief Magis- (
tratc of the State, and make all my communications

To W. IV. IJold.n, 1'ru visional Governor: ^
Accept my thanks for tbo noble and. ;
?flicient manner in which you have dis- .
charged your duty as Provisional Gov- |
;rn.or. You will be sustained by the |

elections in North Carolina, have greatly ,
latnngnj the prospects of tlie State? in i (
die restoration of-its governmental rc- (
ations. Should the action and spiVifc of j

thief already done, and .might be fatal. t

State has already placed itself.

Tiie Question LeCall? Decided?,
[a the Alexcandiia courts the tedium of ^
?rcen-fing proceedings is relieved by an ^
iccaaional uprightly turn. Recently,
Catharine Evitt was on trial for seizing '
Bridget O'Gormai* by.the hair. Counsel
or the defence moved the court to instruct
the "jury that if the defondent's 1
tusband was, at the time, present, she *
vas to be considered as constructively ,L
inder his coerciotf, on well-known prin-t
:iples of law, citing BackstoDe \Yhar- ^
on, etc. ' a
The Presiding Justice?The difficulty
n this case is that, in Blacksf one's time,,.*
vomen were controlled by tlrcrr husbands I
iut in these times women control their {
nisbands, andTsuch an instruction ft these
lays would be very dangerous. (Laugh- 1

you arc in a restless condition. IF it be
