AS IMPORTANT SPEECH.
Marge meeting of the citizens of-6pott
sylvania coun'V. Va., was recently held in
the town of Fredericksburg, to nominal,
candidate* for State and county offices; and,
at the solicitation of all preseut, General S.
vl Harris, who commands that military de
partment, addressed them upon some of the
vital issues that aroee incidentally in the
course of their deliberations.
The speaker having Just frtnrned from the
Federal capital, the importance and signifi
cance of the views enunciated in his speech
are greatly enhanced by the reasonable in
ference that, in all he said, he was but the
medium of communication between the com
munities interested and the National Gov
ernment. And if the grave statements of
Gen. H. on this occasion, were indeed made
by Government authority, we cannot reader
our sJoutbera readers more valuable service
than to lay before them the views and senti
ments expressed by him, which wc do,
with the earnest recommendation that they
receive the degree of attention, to which, lu
our present aaomolous condition, they are so
Gen. Harris, after a few introductory re
marks upon the character of our Govern
ment and institutions, said, in substance,
that it was not the purpose of the Govern
ment to hold the people of the South under
military restraint any longer than will be
necessary to secure the great results of the
war from which the country had just emerg
ed, and to tfo less than this would lie recreant
to the high trust confided to it by the people.
There are some who will tell you that the
contest will again be transferred to the field
of politics. This will not be allowed. Where
any contest has been submitted to the arbi
trament of arms, that decision should be
final, because there is no other tribunal to
which it can be adjourned. And It would be
wrong if the Government should again allow
the contest to be transferred back to the
field of politics, with the probability that
after many years of varying results it would'
again lead to bloodshed and suite. After
announcing that he was a Virginian and
went with the North in the struggle in obe
dience to the dictates of his conscience, but
had a heartfelt desire for the restoration of
peace and prosperity to the South, he says
the Government expects you to throw over
board the old politicians and go among the
masses, into the laboring and working class
es, and select your representative men. It is
due to candor to tell you that the eyes of the
Government are constantly upon you, and if
you can satisfy it by your conduct that the
question of slavery will never be transferred
back to the field of politics, you will be re
ceived with cordiality and a complete resto
ration of your rights. Pointing out the course
which the Southern people should pursue, he
states that in the beginning of the summer he
was two months in Washington, and had the
opportunity of conversing with leading men
trom all sections of the North, who give as
surances that if the Southern people will
elect men who will vote for the adoption ol
she Constitutional amendment abolishing
slavery, and then alter the legal codes in
keeping With it, and elect men to Congress
who are Dot responsible for the war and its
prosecution, ail will be well. But if men Hre
elected to office who, though acknowledging
slavery to be dead and themselves tired ol
the war, yet cling to their own notions and
are unwilling to give up slavery, no repre
sentatives from the Southern States will be
admitted to Congress. This he says will be
a terrible thing, and urges the election ol
men to Congress against whom there can be
no objection. If this is done, the military
will be withdrawn and all civil rights and
privileges fully restored. The great point
urged upon the consideration of all is the ab
solute necessity of leaving nothing undone
politically and otherwise, to restore mutual
confidence between the recent antagonistic
sections of the Union end the Government.
That until confidence is restored things must
remain as they are, however repugnant the
saiUtary may be to the Southern people.
On the subject of the Freedman, be pro
ceeds to say, the freedom cf the negroes has
been so sodden that it must be, to some ex
tent injurious to both master and slave, but
the change is unalterable and the conse
quences must be met. The best po'icy would
probably be to separate the races, but that can
not be done. There is no separate country in
which to colonize them. Then how can their
iabor be made available? The Government
having said to them that they are freedmen,
they must be protected. The way to treat the
negroes is to deal with them in a wise, lib
eral and conciliatory manner, make them os
intelligent and industrious as possible, and
offer them every inducement that, a liberal,
enligateDtc. and just policy can present.
Nentsi H, said, in conclusion, don’t permit
your minds to dwell upon the past, but go to
b; *orlt and restore your damaged fortune*
All uial u a.-ccseary to be done is to acat| t
in go and faith the situation, and you tAus
adopt a line of policy which will secure you
the confidence of the Government and the
people of the North. Sectionalism once re
moved from the halls of Congress, the men
from all part ot the country can meet to
gether and devise measures the develope the
great resources of a great country.”
The people of Georgia will soon be called
upon to exercise the elective franchise in the
election of suitable persons to fill both State
and Federal offlceo, and under circumstances,
too, well calculated to embarrass and con
fuse them, if not advised of thelwishes and
views of the government at Washington, in
reference thereto. Hence the importance we
attach to the address of Gen. Harris, de
livered after a recent interview with the au
thorities at Washington, with the implied
assurance, at least, that he spoke ex-cat he

We have received from the publishers,
Leonard, Scott & Cos., their reprints of the
Edinburg Review for July, and Blackwood’s
Magazine for August. The following are
the contents of the Edinburg Review:

entertaining article in which the merits and
Jefects of the Bishop’s literary character are
weighed with an impartial hand.

mere catalogue of the most eminent of the
masters of Italian art in painting and sculp

spersed with acute criticism ol their respect

Revision of the English Bible. —There are
two parties in the English Cnurch as well as
two parties in English politics—one of which
is against all further translation or emenda
tion of the scriptures, and the other in favor
of a progressive movement. The author of
this article is a Progressist in the work of
emendation and revision of the texts of scrip
ture. His article is copious in its informa
tion as to what has been effected, and what
has been omitted in these branches of theol
ogy. He calls for an authorized version,
through a Royal Commission.
The Tunnel Through the Alps. —This is a
clear and succinct account of one of the two
most stupendous undertakings of the age,
the tunnel through the Alps and the Sue?
canal. The possibility of accomplishing ei
ther of these works was deemed by the most
skillful engineers in Europe impracticable,
but, like the prediction of Or. Lardner, as to
the scheme of crossing the Atlantic by steam,
and the prediction of the English engineer,
Stephenson, that the Sue? canal would prove
a failure, both of these undertakings arc in
a course of speedy accomplishment.
Street's Gothic Architecture in Spain. —The
most magnificent specimens of gothic arch
itecture are found in Spain. The Reviewer
has seized the opportunity in his uc
counl ot Mr. Street's work to describe not
only the architecture of the churches, but
also to delineate the general architecture,
the cities and the topography of the North
China and Japan.—The position is assumed
in this article that the spirit of conquest and
agrandbement in the Western nations of
Europe towards the Eastern Is leading to
important changes of a social as well as com
mercial character in the people of the East
ern hemisphere. Russia. England and France
have extended and are extending their pos
sessions in Asia, and their operations
in China and Japan are in the same
spirit of territorial acquisition, although dis
guised under the resemblance of a desire to
open those counties to a commercial inter
course with the whole civilized world. This
has strengthened the fanaticism of those
Eastern nations towards the people of the
West, resistance to the introduction of Wes
tern ideas and usages being like an article
of their religious creed. The work reviewed
by the author of this paper recommends
armed interference both as regards Cuina
and Japan, that is to obtain Chinese and
Japan territory it negotiation fails ot sue
cess; but although the reviewer does not con
cur in the application of force in one mode, he
does in another; he is favorable to
the policy of compelling the Chinese ana
Japanese governments to establish central
ization as the best means of compelling the
observance of the faith of treaties, und sub
due witbin the limits of those countries the
spirit ot insubordination. Our limits compel
us to abridge our remarks on the other
Twinburnts Atlanta in Calcedcn. —The ap
pearance of anew poet in the character of a
classical dramatist, is considered opportune
by the Reviewer to mske some highly inter
esting remarks on the cultivation of classical
literature in England, while we are able, be
observes, "to add that the author baa invested
an old greek story with much modern in

Moacy Hhowt, a steady tendency toward easier
rate*. The prevailing rate* on call is s per cent.,
with excenftuus at 7 per cent. First-class borrowers

per cent. ; but lu the absence of profitable means

At present the prospect appears to favor an earlv
return to five per cent.

bleak in the firmness ol the exchange drawers, and

find that remitters do not readily respond to their
advanced quotations, and at the close of yesterday's
business, the steillug. go days, wu* sold at loss;.
The stock market ha* relapsed into the condition of
stubborn dullness, from which it was aroused by the

the movement is utmost nominal. Operators nave
returned to their summer recreations, and there Is
apparently no prospect of any revival of business
until the hot season is closed.

firmness in quotations. Five-twenties show increas
ing firmness. lu the race of a further decline in quo

and exchange. There is still a steady demuud n-om
roreign houses for the old issue, which, though light,
yet, wlrh the present scarcity of bonds, tells very di
