LAW IN 19011TH CAROLINA.
The Intelligence of the restoration of
civil law in Mississippi, the home of JEF
FERSON DAVIE, is followed by the news
that, on the sth instant, under the auspices
of Major General MEADE, the commanded.
of this, the military division of the Atlantic,
in consultation with Governor PRIM,
civil law is almost completely restored in
the State of South Carolina, the home and
grave of Joan C. CALICO - UN. These two
Commonwealths may be called the
mother and the daughter of the doe
trine of treason—for in South Carolina
the heresy was first enunciated, and in Mis
sissippi it was most persistently enforced.
Now they are the most moderate, and in
fact the first to yield to the conquering force
of true Unionism, and to accept the aboli
tion of slavery as the fixed fact of the age.
How strange, yet how eloquent, is such an
example as this,!
TOE DEMOCRACY IN THE LITE
Nothing shows the complete collapse of
the so-called Democracy more conclusively
than the late elections in Maine and Ver
mont. Though in the first, a strong bid
was made for popular support, by loud
resolutions in praise of President JOHNSON,
they are beaten worse than ever: Their's
is, indeed, a cruel fate. If they support
President Joiricsox, they lose all the bitter
and angular sympathizers with treason; if
they oppose him, they lose the sound Dem
ocrats, who love the man, and regard his
remedy as the sure panacea for the nation's
“ TWO VIEWS.”
The President's talk to the Southerners
on Monday, and the speech of Mr. SIT:-
VEX S at Lancaster last Wednesday, are the
texts of copious newspaper comment and
comparison. The New York Evening Post,
(ultra Reptiblican,) of yesterday, speaks of
these two tieWS as follows :
The two addresses are not much alike, om-;
cept in the frankness in which both deal with
their subjects. Mr. Stevens does not trust the
Southern mem, and believes we are not safe
unless we exercise all the right and privilrs
Of conquerors,• by depoiling those we e
conquered. President Johnson, On the 0 her
hand, believes that kindness may be even
more effective than violence, and that we are
strong enough to accept the professions of the
Southern men, and trust them to reconstruct'
their local governments tinder the Union.
Idr. Stevens is for confiscation of Southern
estates, the disfranchisement of Southern
men, the total suppression of the Mass which
has, no doubt, been the leading class in the re
hellion—the former slaveholders namely. The
President, on the other hand, addressing a
number of persons of that very class, told
them that he would trust their professions of
conversion, their assurances that they had
seen the error of their ways; that he would
help them and. the Southern people in general
to re-establish law, order, society, industry,
all limier the Constitution.
The President's ideas of reconstruction, or
reoronl7ation, as he prefers, we believe, to
call ft, seem to us those of a statesman, ready
to work with the means placed in his hands;
wise enough to see that his place is to oil the
machinery of government, to prevent friction,
and thus to get the ponderous and important
engine to move with even more than its for
mer smoothness. Mr. Stevens cares nothing
for friction ; ho believes in what seamen call
"main strength and stupidness." Mr. John.
son would reeve the easiest possible gear;
.Mr. Stevens prefers Paddy's purchase, a rope
yarn over a nail.
We arc in the condition of a man and wife
who have had a quarrel, to whom a divorce
has been refused, who cannot live apart. The
President says True, we quarrelled, but let
us now act sensibly ; let us join hands in friend
ship ; we have destroyed that which bred dis
cord beta ecnius ; we have reason to hope for .
many peaceful and prosperous yearsl; let us
forgive offences, and try if by mutual and
joint efforts we cannot do better and live more
hapPily than ever before. No, Cries Dlr. Ste
ven. that's not the way; we are the stronger,
and we ought to keep our partner's bands tied;
we ought to heat her daily with new stripes;
we ought to disable her entirely—no other
course can make us safe.
Copying the President's kind wbrds to
the South, the .Post says : •
Are not these words of true wisdom 1
And wherever WO find them cordially re-
Sponded to in the South, is it not wise to give
a trial to those who prOtess their readiness to.
be good citizens? Some day or other they
Bilkhus it toae trusted—is not now a better
future? Is it for the public 'benefit that we
shOuld, under Air. Stevens , ideas, maintain a
state of - war in the South? Will not returning
prosperity, renewed intercourse, the voice Of
a free press, have their influence all potent
for good? And if South Carolina does not be
come Massachusetts in six months, need we
be discouraged? Our work down there is not
that of months, but of years; it is not to be
eonipleted by armies, but by the spread of
knowledge, the dissemination of correct prin
ciples by convincing the people that justice
and liberty are profitable.
And the New York Tribune meets Mr.
STLVENS on confiscation as follows :
Earnestly striving for a true, lasting peace
between North and South, white and black,
freemen and freedmen, we regard every
scheme emanating from an earnest and pro
minent " BadicaP , which will be deemed
hash er unjust by the South as, while fore
doomed to failure, Certain to work vast and
enduring, mischief through its Influences on
Southern opinion and action. We trust even
Dlr. Stevens will think better of it; and in
this hope commend to his thoughtful conside
ration the following passage from a speech of
Mr. Sumner on eOnThiCatiOn, in Senate, June
27, 1862 :
"Let inc confess frankly (said ISIr. S.) that I
look with more hope and confidence to libera
tion [he would now say enfranchisement]
than to confiscation. To give freedom is no
bler than to take property, and, on this occa
sion, it cannot fall to be more efficacious : for,
in this way, the rear-guard of the rebellion
will be surely changetbutte the advance-guard
of the Union. There is in confiscation, unless
when directed against the criminal authors of
the rebellion, a harshness inconsistent With
that mercy which It is always a sacred duty to
cultivate, and which should 1)0 Manifest in
Proportion to our triumph—' mightiest in the
mightiest.' But, liberation is not harsh; and
it is t icertain, if properly conducted, to carry
with it the smiles of a benignant Providence."
LETTER FROM " OCCASIONAL.”
WAS - imieTort, Sept. 12, 1865.
Let us never forget that if the rebellion
destroyed slavery it also destroyed section
alism. The South- had become so strong
and dictatorial a power, that for nearly a
generation of time it controlled the nomi
nations of one party, and demoralized the
condition of other parties. No such despo
tism could last much longer in a free coun
try, especially when, as in this case, a mi
nority, powerful only in slavery, in igno
rance, and in arrogance, controlled an in
telligent, progressive, and inquiring majo
rity. It was the insufferable arrogance of
the South, and the corruption and ambition
of what was called " -The Democratic
Party," and the weakness and dis
sension of what was called " The
"Whig" and "American" parties, that
culminated in the great countervailing Re
publican organization, which, for the first
time taught the slaveholder that "their
hour had come." And although it was al
leged that Mr, Lincoln ran as a sectional
candidate in 1860, (and so of necessity he
vas,) yet Ms election was he auspicious be
ginning of a pure and uncoznpromisingf
American nationality. We had not had
any real American nationality for twenty
years until Abraham Lincoln was elected
President of the 'United States. From
that event dates the era of genuine con
stitutional government. On the grave of
slavery was planted the monument that
marks the close of tyranny. and, the com
mencement of liberty. Hereafter, he who
attempts to form a sectional party must
first count the cost of an experiment that
plunged twelve millions of people into ruin,
and filled more than a hundred thousand
graves. The tendency of future ambitions
-and parties will be to concentrate, not to
scatter ; and While men will talk of " State
rights," and the municipal relations will
always be religiously observed, the Ameri
can faith will tend towards the centre, re
volving like the planet round the eternal
orb of day, independent in its own sphere,
but obedient forever to the life-giving
. source of our republican system. Some
may think this theory means consoli
dation ; it only means, , that after what
we have endured there is to be no more
secession, but a stronger authority at the
heart of the nation—a more potential
power to punish treason and protect
loyalty. It is for freedom to be . national.
The sectionalism of slavery became so
strong at the last as even to threaten to
make slavery national. The sceptre has
now passed into other hands, and it will
be wielded "by the people and for, the
people." Statesmen who desire to suc
ceed in life, and parties that expect to
prosper in the enjoyment of power, must
address themselves to the inexorable and
exacting fact that in this country, hence
forward and forever, there can be no more
slavery, no more boctionallana, uo more

Special Despatches to The Press.]
WASHINOTON, SOptember 15, 1865
Trusting the South.
The gentlemen who called upon President
Jon NSON, and to whom he made his frank and
liberal speech, yesterday, were new men--
there was net an old politician among them.
The fact was more than auspicious : it preyed
that the (lest - in - lea of the South wore not in the
hands of its betrayers, but would be shaped
by Men who were not fettered by records or
poisoned by faction. The President proposed,
you will notice, to repOSC the fullest confi
dence in tile Southern people. Having re
peatedly stated what he would expect them
to do, and what he would not tolerate,
and having as often declared what he
wag ready to oiler in return for firm al
legiance, be now waits to see how his
generosity will be received. It is an old say
ing, that the best way to show your sincerity
is to exhibit faith in your friend. And uo
doubt the President felt justified in the course
helms taken by the signs of the times. fie has
reason to believe that there is no longer any
opposition to the measures .of restoration in
the South. He has received the most sor
rowful details of the starvation and des
titution of the people there. There is not
a day that he does not meet them by scores.
He, has realized that the rebellion is
not only dead, but that even the idea of r&
viviag it is dead. He knows, also, that if his
generous tenders are followed by ingratitude,
Congress will be at band to help to correct
and to chastise the treachery. The President
sees what strong laws - have been enacted by
adhering Southern States like Maryland, Ten
nessee, and Missouri against allowing the re
turning rebels to control, and he is not with
out hops that powerful preventive measures
of the same sort will be adopted in the recent
insurgent sections, under the auspices of his
armed polity Of restoration. ass

Land 01110 e at Santa F 4 l'ieto Mexico; and the

condition of the freedmen along the line of
the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, from Balti

of the freedmen inDfaryland, along the section
of country ho travelled, QS quite encouraging.
The planters, as a general thing, have hired
their former slaves at fit?: wages, paying them
regularly, while the freedmen work willingly,
'highly pleased with the improvement in their
condition. At Harper'S Ferry a colored school
has been established, which now numbera
about sixty scholars. This school is constantly
increasing in numbers, and other schools will
have to be organized.
Internal Revenue Decision.
The Commissioner of Internal Revenue has
decided that a person who merely canvasses
and takes subscriptions for maps, books, &,c.,
is not a peddler within the meaning of the in
ternal revenue laws. If, however, he receives
pay for the books, luapsi ax., at the time he
takes the subscription, o_ - if he delivers them
and receives pay therefor upon a subscription
previously taken by himself or by another, he
is a peddler, and should take a license as such.
Ben. B. G. Harris and Montgomery
The story runs that 1,101:ToomERY BLAIR,
whose strong sympathy with the returned re
bels of Maryland was so .clearly shown in his
late Clarksburg speech, is,anxious to get Hon.
B. G. liAnalS out of his seat in the next Con
gress, which can only be done by proving him
(HARRIS) to be disloyal An effort was made
last Congress and failed, and Haunts was af
terwards re-elected. The reason why BLAIR.
wants HARRIS out is that he luny run for the,
vacancy thus made and get his plaee—both
men being in the same district. Qllere 1 new
much would the Unionists in Congress gain by
obliging. Mr. BLAIR. in this swap'?
Law Being. Generally Restored
in the. South.
The restoration of the civil law in South
Carolina will shortly be followed by the same
generosity to the Slates of Florida, Texas,
Arkansas and Georgia. It seems to be con
ceded that the Government resolved some
weeks ago, to act on the doctrines of the
President's speech of yesterday. Hence, the
mission of CAltl. &nuns and General IttsAns.
The Freedmen's Bureau, however, will be
continued with stronger power than usual.

Mr. George T. Garrison, Accomac county, Yd.;
Dean Sint Having un idea of leaving the
United States, and unwilling to leave myself
connected with any transaction which could
by any possibility be tortured into any reflec
tion upon myself, I give you the following
facts' Some time 'during the summer of 1851,
General Stoneman and Ins command, while On
a raiding expedition through the State of
Georgia, were captured, and the privates were
sent as prisoners of war to Andersonvilie, Ga:
Owing to the fact that they had been pillaging
and stealing everything that they could lay
their bands on from the citizens or . Georgia,
General J. H. Winder ordered all species of
property found in their possession to be taken
from them and deposited in my hands as post
quartermaster. This order was executed by
the commandant of the prison. I was then in
structed to return all property identified to
the original and rightful owners, and to hold
the !balance subject to orders. I have thus
returned all identified property, and in obe
dience to orders, have a balance on hand.
Knowing the hitter feelings of the Federals to
any one connected with the prison depart
ment, I have 'not considered inadvisable at
present to call the attention of any Federal
officers to these facts, or to turn over said pro
perty to them for their action in the matter,
but at the same time am unwilling to hold
them without a proper explanation, to be used
itt nly defence hereafter, in case any charges
are brought against me. Smile of the pro
perty evidently belongs to citizens of Geor
gia, while other of it was evidently the
property of the prisoners themselves. No
list of prisoners' names from whom these
things web taken was ever furnished me,
and consequently I can Kivu no information
as to individual ownership. I place the facts
and property in your bands, subject to your
discretion, in order that, as a friend of mine,
you can . protect me from any complaints
which may be brought against me in this mat
ter. Any of the officers stationed at Ander-
SOliville at the time of this transaction will
confirm my statement, as will also my clerks.
Ail other property in my hands belonging to
prisoners of war has been turnel over to
them through the proper ehannels—the money
through the hands of Capt. Thos. It. Stewart,
Company 0, Ist Maryland Regiment, to Col.
Ould, agent of exchange, and other property
through the commandant of the prison at An
dersonville. Hoping that it will not be asking
too much of a favor to protect me, as, far as in
your power, in this matter,' I am your very
true friend, WINDER.
Among the papers referred to is a receipt
from H. }Virg, for eleven watches received
from It. B. Winder, to be returned to Feaeral
prisoners, and a receipt from W. Hatch, assist
ant agent , for the exchange of prisoners, for
some twelve hundred dollars in notes, re

There continue:' a good daily demarid
the different kinds of United States bodds,li
large and small amounts, for investmentf ; and
there seems to be no end to the calls for them,

persons of moderate meatis, the orders to bsy
being for fifties, hundreds, and five ltundred);'
besides e'er thousands and tens of thousands;-
This is a'gratifying evidence of the - strength
of the publie credit, and the confidence of the
people inthe stability of the Government. It
seems morally certain that nothing east be
safer or surer than this great and powetflll
nation's obligations to repay in (me time all
the money borrowed to preserve its existencit
and. Maintain its authority. The bonthr ars
well held, although there are always' COn.
twin parties in want of money for otherpur
poses, who are obliged to sell at the cur--
'refit market prices, whatever they may hap ,
nen to be, and this enables a portion of the
:constant, orders to buy to be filled with.
out stimulating prices unduly. After the
floating debt is all funded and the bonds placed'
away for permanent holding, there will no'
doubt be a material appreciation in prices.
Yesterday the sales were : made at previous

The Mobile Register expresses regret " to see
in the proceedings of the Convention of the
State of Mississippi, some symptoms of repu
diation of the war debt of that State," and the
Register proceeds to protest earnestly against
the policy, and to argue in favor of paying
these rebel obligations. The same trouble
will arise in all of the rebel States, and may
as well he contemplated and provided against.
We have a national war debt which theSe pee'
ple will have enough to do to pay their share
of, without burdening themselves in addition
with these rebel obligations. Congress, we
presume, will provide effectually against any
State taxing - her citizens to pay rebel debtS,
The United States Government has, frah the
first, emphatically denied that these debts
were incurred by any rightful State authority.
The Sub-Treasury Office, in New York, re
ceived on Biel-Way $350,000 ill gwd from the
New• Orleans office, where the gold customs
have been accumulating for several months.
Should further sums in gold or currency be
required by the cotton trade, for transmission
to New Orleans, the Sub-Treasurer in New
York is prepared to make transfer drafts on
the New-Orleans Sub-Treasurer for either. In
former years, before the - war, thisarrangement
was frequently found to be very convenient to
the cotton and domestic exchange trade.
