Thursday Morning, Sept. 21.1865. Opinion mik Feeling nt tlac North. A correspondent of one . of |he Charleston pipers, writing from the North, descrihes tho feeling, opinion and sentiments of tho people o? Boston ajad elsewhere, towards those of the South, as by no means calculated to make the parties love ef?h other in the future any more th?h iu the past. He says: "I regret to state that thc feeling towards the South, as I have observed it exhibited here, is not what those Ait o desire spee-ly reconciliation could wish it to be. Thc activity of certain newspapers in collecting and ( ?grouping all facts, reports and im? pressions relative to the spirit of the .?South-many of which, it is unneces? sary to say, are destitute of any color ?or truth-has been the means of a wide-spread belief getting a hokl upon the public mind, that the temper of Ihe Southorn people is vicious, dan? gerous, and inclining even "to a new warlike p?tbr?ak.

CO FA'M BI A. Friday Morning, Sept. 22, 1865. Do Omnibus Rrbna, dec. The grievous featire in the case of Cassandra, "blasted by Phoebus with prophetic fire," lay not so much in the fact that she was compelled in anticipation to behold the scene of blood an<# terror, and violence and shame, but that her predictions, which, properly entertained, might have baf? fled the criminal, wera never believed until the event was realized; and her warnings were all in vain. What was regarded as the peculiar curse in the doom of Cassandra is perhaps^ more universal allotment than people have been wont to regard it. We know of very little prophecy that has ever been believed until the predicted event has been realized. The great body of mankind aro unwilling to ac? cord the gift of the prophetic to any? body but themselves. Th?y are jeal? ous of any divine claim to superiority, and nine-tenths of our politicians are continually m compelled to cry aloud, in the spirit of Cassandra, * 'Didn't I t...

When the armies of the Confede? rate States were retreating -before those* nf Sherman, .they burned . the railroad bridges as they retired, thus doing the very thing which Sherman had principally set forth to do. Sher? man was very grateful They saved him feue and trouble. The question ?tras, why our troops should do this thing and thus save the invader all the labor* and loss of time ? They could not be pursued over these bridges, which were useless without the roll? ing stock and the usual connec? tions. So we lost the bridges over the Edisto and Congaree. They did not know what else to do, and when folks are' greatly worried or badly' scared, they have a notion, that some? thing should be done, that t?y are expected to do something, iffrnly to keep themselves busy, and so they do mischief.

'COLUMBIA. i_._ Sunday Morning, Sept. 24,1865.

The larws regs-, latingrit ar? humane, and free ne? groes, of -whom there are many,-are . politically upon an equality with the whites, and many of them socially. ' This is not cheerful intelligence for the Southerners, who propose to euii grate there, partly because they do not desire to live in a community part of whoso* number are free negroes. Nor is it rendered more agreeable by the fact that Don Pedro and bis im? perial advisers are contemplating the gradual abolishment of slavery throughout the Empire.
