COLUMBI^.L Saturday Morning, August ll, 1860. All Ia Not Lioat. The despondent among us sadly err, who, brooding over our misfor? tunes, do themselves and their sec? tion great injustice by nursing tho melancholy idea that, with our lost political cause and tho emancipation of our late slaves, the South lost all that was worth possessing, and that she can never regain her former in? fluence and high position. We do uot believe-any such gloomy forebod? ings for the future of the Staten com? posing the late Confederacy, nor do we believe that the South has lost all that the faint-hearted among us, per? haps honestly, believe that Bhe has. We proceed to givo the reasons for the hop? that is within ns. First-The patient endurance of our people, bowed down by thc ca? lamities of war, under tho unjust legislation of the past twelve months; their rigid adherence to tho terms of their surrender; their strict loyalty to their renewed allegiance, and their honest, if not cheerfid, acceptance ...

COLUMBI^. J Sunday Morning, August 12,1866. j The Philadilphin Convention. j Wo believe that on the notion of | this b?dy, which assembles on Wednesday next, much of the future ia our national affairs depends. -We have advocated a representation of the Southern States in the Conven? tion, because they were invited to participate iu its deliberations; and secondly, because the object was one involving the best interests of the country-the overthrow of the radi? cal party and the restoration of tho Southern States to their rights. We publish elsewhere an articlo from the New York News, which we are pleased to observe is entirely dif? ferent in its tone and spirit from a former editorial which we took occa? sion to comment upon. The News takes the same position iu the pre? sent article as that which the Phoenix has occupied ia all ita remarks on tho subject; that is, the Southern repre? sentatives must take their seats in that body as equals; and it further agrees with us, in saying th...

COLUMBI^. Wednesday Morning, Aug. 15, 1886. The Freedmen's Bureau. Tho disclosures made in the final report of Commissioners Steedman and Fullerton, an abstract of which we published yesterday, must cer? tainly arouse the people of the coun? try, and convince them that if ever such an institution was necessary for the protection of the colored people at the South, its usefulness is at an end, and that it has now become an evil to all classes, and especially to that class it was professedly instituted to benefit. As the National Intelligencer, in pub? lishing the full report, says, "it is shown that the Bureau has become a pregnant source of local strife, a se? rious obstacle to the social advance? ment and self-dependence of the freedmen, and generally a means of imposing a system "of oppression in? finitely worse and more onerous than the slavery from which, through the fire and carnage of civil war, they have been emancipated."
