' Take, for in? stance, the following in the New York Htrxtld, of thc 2Gth xdtirao. % It will be . remembered, that paper says, that some time ago reports from Matamo ras, Mexico, were received and pub? lished iu the Northern newspapers, to the effect that the imperial twoops had entered and taken possession of Chi? huahua, the Republican capital, and that President Juarez was compelled to fice for hj?s fife and become a fugi? tive.. "We are now in possession of correspondence from that city to the , 10t:i of June, which indicates that these stories were utterly false.

COLUMBIA. Wednesday Morning-, Aug. 9j 1865. The New York Times, of thc 28th ultimo, devotes a column of editorial comments to the snbject of ibo "Mu? tual respect between North and j South." It says it is a noteworthy fact, that there lias not been a time in this generation when the language of the North and South toward each other has been so respectful and con? siderate as since tho close of the war. This cessation of thc Iaiuraase of acrimonious bitterness, between i the two sections is attributed by tiie Times chiefly to "tia1 mutual ; respect generated by the war." It i says "the old Northern notion that 1 the South had degenerated into a race of domineering, pusillanimous ?bins- j terers and braggarts, and the old Southern notion thal the North had lost every ejpment of manhood in the passion for gain, and would submit to anything rather than light, haw both been thoroughly annihilated.

They all quit work and run hither and thither without awy apparent aim or object. They seem to lose their senses, or, to speak more correctly, their proper instincts. Ants, too, are thrown into the same disorder when their hills are rudely broken into. They are called a "wise folk" in the inspired volume, but on stich occa? sions they appear to lose all of their wisdom. We have recently witnessed, in these Southern States, says thc Richmond Times, an exhibition of the same character among the laboring class of the South. The hitman hive lost their head, the African ?int hill was broken into, and from hive and hill the swarming thousands poured in confusion. Chaos i? scarcely a word strong enough to describe their condition. The idea of freedom, free? dom from labor and restraint, with all the vague visions of happiness ...
