COLUMBIA. Wednesday Morning, Nov. 21, 1S66". Slavery un ii Freedom. This is an awful tenn to Thad. Ste vens and Wendell Phillips. H we recur to the history of the war against the South, we can trace it all fairly and squarely. In order to create enthusiasm for the doctrines of abolitionism, it was fiercely asserted that slavery was the only obstado in tho path of Southern progress. Gen. Banks predicted that, with its overthrow, 10,000,000 bales of cotton (and that the mathemati? cians alone knew how many hogsheads ol* sugar) would be raised instanter. Lt was likewise computed that at least 1,000,000 of white freemen would swarm to our fertih?, fields, and make new paradises of them. Well, tho job has been done-and done effectually. "Where are the re? sults of Gen. Banks' predictions' Where aro those many millions o? cotton and sugar? Where aro thc million of white freemen? Wc, noi anybody else in the South, havoseei them. The truth is, that emancipa tion has ruined the negro, both t...

When nature is ail aglow Aglow with a mystical splendor That rivals tho brightness of Spring Aglow with a beauty more tender Than aught which fair Summer could bring. Some spirit akin to the rainbow Then borrows its magical dyes, And mantles the far-spreading landscape lu hues that bewilder the eyes. The Sun from his cloud-pillowed chamber Smiles soft on a vision so gay, And dreams that his favorite children, Tho flowers, have not yet passed away. There's a luminous mist on the mountains, A light, azure haze in the air, As if angels, while Heavenward soaring, Had left their bright robes floating thero; The breeze is so sott, so caressing, it seems a mute token of love;, And floats to the heart liko a blessing Prom some happy spirit above. Theso days, so serene and so charming, Awaken a dreamy delight - A tremulous, t...
