SatnradayTT; ; : : : : :Jnne 1.1867 The Raymond Gazette learns that there will be perhaps five hundred persons in Hinds county, who will apply for the benefits of the Bankrupt law. Registers cannot legally refuse registration to auy oitiion who is willing to take the oath, nor are they author ized to administer any oath save the one specialty prescribed. What Ibo Act Require. The Reconstruction acts require twelve months citizenship, with resi dence, prior to the time of voting, an age of twenty-one years, non-dis JraDchisement lor telony or par ticipation in rebellion, an oath obedience to the Constitution and laws, and the averments that the affiant has never been a member of any State Legislature or holder any executive or judicial office in any State, and afterwards engaged in insur- rection or rebellion against the United States, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof, or that he has never taken an oath as a member of the Con gress of the United States, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any' State Legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, and afterwards engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. This is plain. No matter what service, in a military or civil capacity, a man may have rendered the Confede racy, provided he had not previously held an executive, legislative or judicial office in any State requiring him . to take the oath to support Jhe Con stitution of the United States, or has Tint rolreri rho anm - ..w of the United States Congress or as a United States officer he is authorized to register and vote. And he is an thorized to register and vote, even if he has held these official positions and taken the necessary oath, provided he gave only a passive support to the Confederacy. In cases of doubt they are to be construed favorably to the applicant The great and paramount question of the day will soon be the debt and taxation of the people. The latter has got to be reduced. Even as extreme and ultra a Radical journal as Harper's Weekly says : "We can not help thinking, and saying, too, in strict confidence to the readers of this journal, that stupid, and dull, and voiceless as the public may be, he has some rights which politicians will sooner or later have to recognize. He is now paying tax at the rate of seven per cent, more than is paid by the most heavily taxed people of Europe, and at the same time he is paying for commodities of all kinds, and labor, fifty-five and one hundred and fifty per cent, moro than any other people in the world. In England the taxes are heavy, no doubt, but food, clothing and rent are cheap. In Russia living is expensive, but the taxes are light ; but here in the United tates the public groans under the simultaneous burden of heavy taxes and expensive living. We have a notion that, sooner or later, he will rebel against this load, and that the party that laid it on hU shoulders will itself be laid pretty low." A correspondent, writing from Gainesville, Florida, to the Savannah News, speaks as follows of the crops, and the negroes in that section : "Crops are said to be promising, and I am inclined to think, from the various reports I received at this the central point of the great long cotton country of East Florida, that the planters are making greater exertions and the negroes are working with greater diligence, than they dil at this season last year. Many of the negroes go into it with an astonishing zeal, and as a class, in this section, they may be considered in a prosperous and happy sute. We have similar accounts from the ru ral districts generally, where the minds of the negroes have not been diverted from their congenial and legitimate occupations, as in the towns and cities, and even there the disturbing causes will necessarily be of short duration. New Orleaks Cottoh Market, 30th. Ordinary 202Ic-; good ordinary 2323 Jc , low middling 2425a ; and middling 26. ; ndtl'&v- Messrs." Freeman, Hooker an ter, whojurve made the main argument in jWifcitate against Reconstruction J under the Acts of Congress, based their opinion chiefly on the ground that the Supreme Court would come to the rescue of the people and re lieve them of the necessity of accept ing the proposed terms. Heavy broadsides charged with this idea exclusively, were delivered against the position occupied by those who advised Reconstruction. But the decision of the Court that it has no authority to exercise Jurisdiction ov'er the questions involved, and its dis missal of the petitions ro enjoin pro ceedings under the Laws, have scatter ed these voluminous opinions to the winds, and have not left to their authors even so much as a sign of the wreck of the platform which they erected with so much care, and dis played so enticingly before the eyes of the people. Since the Supreme Court has utterly failed to do what these able lawyers elaborately argued it certainly would do. for all practical purposes the worthy citizens who solicited their opinions, might as well have trusted to the counsels of the legal gentle men who had previously spoken, and whose opinion as the jurisdiction of the Court has beei fully sustained by its decision. This ground of opposition to Reconstruction hajing been entirely swept away, notling remains for the persons who occupied it, to stand on. We may reasonably infer, therefore, that they have altered the ranks of those who are intfavor of complying with the requirements of the Government. There are others.however, who talk loudly of "honor,'l and "chivalry," and "self-degradation ;" who advise the people not to tacrifice the one, nor to be guilty of the other by accepting the terms tendered by Congress. But they do not shlw, and have not attempted to-show, aid cannot show, that the people are i' a condition to escape military rule I by any other method; that Congress has not the power to prescribe and require to be enforced, its own tejms of Reconstruction, and that having the power, it will not remorselessly exercise it. They have addressed liany appeals to passion and prejudice; but they have not attempted to convince any man's reason that the rejection of these terms will not lead to the enforcement of others of a still more harsh and vindictive character. No people have ever suffered in their reputation for "chivalry," who " '"""H1 s gallantly as the peo-t the Soutii Yiuvtj iought against overwhelming odds, yield obedience to the laws of a government which they have no means of resisting. This fact is comprehended by the great in tellectual heroes the Longstreets and Beauregards of the South; and its truth is illustrated by the wisdom of their counsel. Appropos of the cheap "chivalry" of the present hour, and its uses, we cannot resist the temptation to quote some admirable passages on this sub- ect, from the pen of an able cotempo- rary. "Chivalry is a fine thing. It sounds well. To call a mau chivalrous, or a 'chivalry, is to attach to him a reson-'ant, musical description. Chivalry looks well, reads well, sounds well, and is the passion of young ladies of "a certain acre. Conceding these "merits, and we have conceded very "nearly all. Chivalry will not build "up the blackened walls of a burned "homestead , it will not produce a "pound ot cotton to the thousand "acres. "It is something which is a good "deal more ornamental than useful. "It will not raise corn, vote the prop-"er ticket, or get an excluded state in- "to Congress. It is something which, "in this country is like a coat of arms, "Everybody may have it, and nobody "be any the better, or nobler, or wiser "for its possession. What the south "needs now is something quite differ-"ent from chivalry. "It wants patience and industry. It "wants to settle into the harness for "hard work. Either the South will "rebuild itself, or the time T?ill come "when it will be doing the same thing "under the direction of a Yankee task- "mastcr. Its public men, instead of "delivering inflammable lectures upon "exploded humbugs, should all be "hard at work, repairing, reconstruct- "ing, rebuilding. "The better destiny of the south in- "vites it to labor, and not to acts of "chivalry. The hoe, and not the lance, "should be henceforth the weapon of "the southerner. When a man dies 'let it be said of him that he was a laborer in the work of rebuilding, and "not that he was a chivalrous gentle-"man. A bale of cotton is worth sev-"eral times the amount of a wreath of "flowers presented by the queen of "beauty to some chivalrous knight for "his magnificent daring in sticking a "pointed pole through a ring. A doz-"en workers are worth tea times m f iuuch as an army of knights. Let i - i'the south believe this, and act accord "Wy." ', Southern Enterprise. Our correspondent "B. F. ' men tioned, in his letter of May 21st, that Gen. West and other enterprising cit- izens'of our State are in New York ne gotiating for the means to erect sev eral home manufacturing establish ments. We are gratified to learn that their efforts are in a fair way to be crowned with success. They could not address themselves to a work which will re dound more to their credit and pros perity as individuals, and to their fame as public benefactors. With ample water power in the midst of their cotton fields, and every other essential material element, and with a resolute spirit which should look doom itself in the face, our people can soon build up a manufacturing system of their own. This with dil igent attention to the cultivation of their great staple, and of enough grain to supply their wants, and more, will soon rescue them from their prostrate condition, and place them on the highway of commercial and financial independence. On the subject of Southern enterprise, particularly the business of manufacturing, we find an excellent article in the New Orleans Picayune, from which we can appropriately insert the following extracts: "We condense these facts from recent reports to show how immense and how profitable is now the field open in the Southern country for manufactories of this description. We might go on to give other examples by describing similar factories in other localities of Georgia and the neighboring States. But these are sufficient. They show by the best evidence of all, an experience of thirty years, faotories conld be made to realize a profit of 25 per cent, annually before the war. when as yet almost pioteotive duties had not been levied on for eign manufactures, and the prices of similar goods were immensely lower. Seeing this, these companies have hastoned to erect new buildings and put in new machinery, and they will undoubtedly herealtor reap larger profits than ever before. "And what has been done on the t'liatta- hooche can be dono all through the South. There is no country in the world more bounteously supplied with suitable water power, and none whose climate is any way more favorable. Instead of a dozeu cotton and woolen lactories in the State of Georgia, there might easily be found sites for five hundred, enough to work up all the cotton and wool raised in that State, at least into yarns, and to supply all the people with suitable clothing. The same may bo said of the Carolina, of Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee. Through all those States run living streams of purest water, admirably adapted to all the purposes of manufacturing. There is no climate more healthy. The raw 6tnplo is ready at hand. There is a wanted for consumption here can be export' ed at immense profit to the North and to foreign countries. "It seems to have been easy, even since the war, to form companies, with a certain amount of money, to engage in the export of the raw cotton to Europe- It would be equally ns easy to form associations tor manufacturing this cotton into fabrics, dosirable either i"or.consumption here or for export, aud thus add vastly to their profits, at the same time they made themselves independent, and established their business npon a solid and enduring foundation. Up to the present timo, on account of the imperfection of machinery and the want of skilled labor, only cortain descriptions of goods have been manufactured. There is no reason in the world why we could not have as good ma chinery as they have in Euglaud, and labor us skilled, for thousands of starving opera tives there would eagerly jump at the chance to emigrate hither, and companies, like those ou the Chattahooche, thus supplied, would be capable of turning out the finest fabrics known in Lancashire, and of supplying a large portion of the markets of the world. "We earnestly invoke those of our people who are seeking investments in profitable business to enter upon, this, the most in viting business of all. The raw staple at hand, ready markets, abundant water pow er, a healthful climuto, local independence, business that can nover be undermined nor made subject to fluctuations, every consid eration that can bear upon the human mind, honor, interest and love of country, all eagerly iuvite them. To the people oi Europe, also, and to thoso of the North, East and West, who desire to change their homes and better their condition, never offered so desirable an opportunity. Here there would be no laboring in heated and unhealthy rooms an unnatural number of hours per day for a mere support, but genial employment as it were in the open air, at wages that would enable the common operative in a few years to possess, in fee simple, bis own home, as proud and independent as that of the landlord of England, and in our fruitful Southern clinio, far more beautiful."

Secretary McCulloch has written a letter in which he says : 'The report that the condition of the finances would require a special session of Congress originated doubt less with certain persons who want a session for purooscs of their own. A session is certainly not needed, so far as the treasury department is concerned, and I have no hesitation in saying that a special session would affect in juriously the credit of the government VV e need industry more than legislation." W e beg to call the attention not only of the Registers, but our citizens generally, to that part of the Attorney General's opinion which refers to dis qualification. lit says : I must repeat vhat has been said before, that to avoid disqualflcations two elements mus; concur hrst, hold ing tne designated olllee, state or Federal, accompanied by an official oath to support the Constitution of the United States ; and second, engaging in the rebellion against the United States, or giving aid or comfort to its enemies ; both of these must not only concur, but lliey must concur in the order of time mentioned first, the oince ana tne oatn, afterwards engaging in the rebellion, or giving aid or comfort. IA person who has held an office within the meaning of the law. and has taken the official oath, and who has not afterwards participated in the rebellion; may very safely take this oath, and so, too, the person who has fully participated in the rebellion, but has not previous thereto held an office and taken official oath, may with equal safety take this oath. The Presbyterian General Assembly at Memphis has adjourned, A committee on reunion of the old and Dew schools was appointed to report at the next assembly. Florida is said to be filling op with im migrants foster than any other Southern State. Settlers, chiefly from New England nd New Yrk, are going then in great numbers. Stagnation and distrust are the characteristics of business affairs in every part of the country. The paper currency is abundant, and is piled up by the bale in the commercial cities, particularly in New York. There is no safe business calling for its employment, and its holders are chary of loans upon any sort of security less valuable than gold itself. We have noticed ins'ances in which planters and cotton factors from Georgia have offered in New York a high rate of interest and most ample security upon crops, land, kc, for money to make their plantations productive, and they could not obtain it in the great commercial emporium. This is the more remarkable for the reason that, by a law of the State of Georgia, a first lien is given to the lender upon the crops and property. These facts show a want of confidence in the present condition of the affairs of the country that is truly ominous. National Intelligencer.
