ly left destitute and totally in want. But few negroes were taken off, comparatively, and but few of these were compelled to go; some of which have been permitted to return, and so loose were they in their discipline, that many have run away and returned to their masters. The above statement accords with what I have heard in reference to other sections of the country through which Sherman passed. Indeed, I have heard persons who were living in the neighborhood of Atlanta, and even between Dalton and Atlanta, state they were much surprised at the small extent of injury they had sustained at the hands of the enemy. In connection with this statement, and what we daily hear from Savannah, is it not reasonable to suppose that Sherman has inaugurated a new policy — that of leniency to the people, in order to win them back to the Union? If not so, it is certainly a great relief to have an enemy who is so different to many others, who is possessed of manliness, generosity and humanity, in

h the decorum of a civilized people, she will find General Sherman a cruelly-mis-represented man. She need not, in that event, "apprehend any more damage by the enemy than the citizens of Georgia have already suffered." That is, on the march; nor is it at all likely, for various reasons, that any injury need be anticipated hereafter. They must have seen by this time, from the legislation of the Yankee Congress, and the reply of Lincoln to our Commissioners, that there is nothing the United States so much desire as Peace. The terms announced in that reply were so exceedingly liberal that the world will stand aghast at the audacious obstinacy of the South in not accepting them at once. When you ask a gentle- man for both his money and his life, it can never enter your head that he will meet you with a flat refusal, and thus justify you in taking both upon the spot. It never entered the imagination of Lincoln that the South could hesitate to close with his generous offer, and thu

The progress of Sherman through Georgia is said, by a correspondent of a South Carolina paper, to have bral Sherman or any other high official say "that in Georgia he could restrain his men, but in South Carolina heg officers will show the same leniency as he did in Georgia. And if he fails to create a Union feeling in the is his object to do, and in which he has failed in Georgia--still I do not believe the people of South Carolinmage to them by the enemy than what the citizens of Georgia have already suffered."

l-known characteristics of the Sons of the Pilgrims forbid the idea that, when they have succeeded in conquering the country, they should inflict any "damage" upon these whom they spared in an invading march. The Yankees have never looked from their barren rocks, with a covetous and greedy eye, upon the fat and fertile plains of the South. They have never envied the comparatively easy and comfortable life upon Southern plantations. They are Pilgrims upon the earth in pursuit of a heavenly Canaan and do not desire their attention to be distracted by the things of time and sense. Not one of Sherman's large surveying party cast a longing glance upon the fertile Georgia fields through which he passed, nor inwardly resolved that some time he could come back and "locate in them diggins."--Let us be just and generous to a chivalric foe and not embitter our minds by unworthy ideas of Yankee human nature.

ng traveled over a part of the section of the country through which General Sherman passed from Atlanta to Savannah, I thought I would give you a brief account of the effect produced upon it, and alsough which Sherman passed. Indeed, I have heard persons who were living in the neighborhood of Atlanta, and even between Dalton and Atlanta, state they were much surprised at the small extent of injAtlanta, state they were much surprised at the small extent of injury they had sustained at the hands of the enemy. In connection with this statement, and what we daily hear from Savannah, is it not reasonable to suppose that Sherman has inaugurated a new policy —proclamations at various points of the Southwest, his wholesale banishment of the population of Atlanta, and the brilliant illuminations he got up in that city, show that he is one of the most frank motives, to be courteous and humane.--Uncharitable persons may suggest that Sherman's march to Atlanta was a retreat instead of an advance, and that he acted upon the principle of "You let me alone
fact of the great exaggeration in reference to the destruction of property by the enemy. In fact, with the exception of a few burnt houses and bad roads, there are no other visible signs of a hostile army ever having passed through the country. Mills, factories and gin-houses were spared, and but few dwellings burnt. It is true that some of all of them were destroyed, but then the inhabitants allege that it was done by straggling parties; nor did I meet one person who thought that any commanve could have entered the hero's mind. He was only following the natural instincts of a magnanimous soul. We congratulate the people of South Carolina that they are assured in advance of similar leniency on his march through that Commonwealth.

Not one of Sherman's large surveying party cast a longing glance upon the fertile Georgia fields through which he passed, nor inwardly resolved that some time he could come back and "locate in them diggins."--Let us be just and generous to a chivalric foe and not embitter our minds by unworthy ideas of Yankee human nature. Let South Carolina exercise the cardinal virtues of courtesy and hospitality to the nation's guest, and she will escape, certainly for the present, all "damage."If Sumpter and Marion have any descendants in that province, let them be put in close confinement. If such a breed as that is permitted to go at large, somebody will be hurt. The harmony of the occasion will be interrupted, and General Sherman, in spite of his humane inclinations, may find himself unable to hold in "the stragglers." These reckless and turbulent spirits would be popping off rifles from every tree and swamp, and compel the illustrious visitor, in recognition of such a reception, to i

iple of "You let me alone and I will let you alone." We prefer to believe, in the language of the correspondent, that he is "possessed of manliness, generosity and humanity,"all of which were illustrated in his so-called "extermination proclamations." Those proclamations, rightly interpreted, prove that he is the most humane and merciful of Federal generals. He only proposed to put the Southern people at once out of their misery, and translate them to better world. We regret that the Carolinian's correspondent should qualify his praises of Sherman by the intimation that he may have been insincere in his tender treatment of the people of Georgia, and only seeking thereby to establish a Union feeling in that country. The correspondent must have seen by Lincoln's ultimatum that no such motive could have entered the hero's mind. He was only following the natural instincts of a magnanimous soul.
