It is the falfchm of jkaak minds to sneer
at the earnest «**(• of many, Who during
(he existence of the Confederacy were de-
voted is ito-jnpport, soar that it is dead, en.
deavor to restore peace, order and prosper-
ity to the cotUttry. Those efforts are charged
to facility of change which those persons
take pride in not being oapable of. Words
of anklnd meaning and indicating unhap-
py temper, ara&aely applied. It ia not
worth while to reply to such by pointing
tbem to the old adage about those who seme-
times, and t&b f!k>thers who never change
their mind^, Iff fitness and trutb would
hsrre no other effect than to increase the il)
humor of such aa tbe garment would fit. It
is enough for the present to say to them,fol-
low in peaot, •(£• pa& you have chosen.
The world is wide enough to hold us all.
For our ©Wn p«rt we believe it to be tbe
#oty of every good man and woman to do
all in bis or her power to bring about the
earliest settlement of affairs possible. We
Welieve it the great duty of all to harmonise
fhe people. And so far as "personal ill*
feelings' ate conoCrned, let by-gohes be by-
gones. Those whose ideas of patriotism
have led tbem into personal unkind aess
have a lesson to lawn, and It is one of the
kardeat that human nature can learn. It ia
aa old aa tba records of man that they hate
moat who haveiqjured most. And to un-
learn tba hates kirl forgive those one has

Tba aattaiatioa of *v* authority la the
great trt^eol to be attained, and the most
poiebt attvtis far ihi| lpurpoa«, is tba har-
monious union of all ota<ses in destring,
ft and laboring for it. However wall a
toililary goverameat iMy be administersd,
Mia not the,faneraacnt adapted to the
testes aad.habita ofr our paaple, aid with-
out great g^od tadgsNni and fotbearaaee
an balh tides. tt will be frmttfui of hard-
ships and avila. Of thia none are better
porsuaded than those who ar« to adminis-
ter it. Bueh a govern meat is, however,
deemed neoessary for tba present, and
that the people i hould everywhere not
only quietly submit to it, but hoacatly sus-
tain it, ia ao lass a duly than any other
tha situation h\s brought with it, and it
l« also tha shortest way to the reorganising
of ear civil affaiia.
" To acoept the situation and mfke tha
best of it" baa bean tha temper of all the
beat thinking me? of the country ktnee it
earns upon us. Wa have pointed to the ad-
dresses of such military chieftains aa John*
eton, Taylor, Forrest and others. We point
today la the noble letter of Bishop An-
drews, ona of ONlbaetmen in all the South,
whioh will be found ia this paper. These
an typos of tha disposition of the men of
ehanetar Of tha eotintry. Those who can-
aot look at affairs as they do had better
shat their eyes and let tba situation alone.
Nor are t|toy in better buainees who da*
aire that no one who has been a seeeesionist
•hould take part la reconstruction. The
rery Cut that out of 60,000 votea given on
qtNation in Texas, 45,000 were for se-
leeeion, aad four-fifths of the balance after
wards were aa hearty In support of the Con-
federacy aa aay, shows that if raoonatroo-
Hon, or the reorganising of affairs is left
szohuivaly to thoae who are Unloabta, the
poopia of Aa State aa a mam must ha left
Ml Thia may suit thoae who<dedre to be
ef tha assail reigning family left, but it ia
not consonant with republican institutiona
and tha form of Government which tha
Praaideaf quotee, a* baiag guaranteed to
ihaSUtea, in Ida proolamatlon.
So for as we kaow, that olaas are Utile
enough inc'tined to take the part which we
believe duty requlrea of them, and it has
been and will be our part to induce tbem to
take the same view of duty we have. Nor
is it good policy for three o^ five, or even
ton thousand voters to undertake the
organisation of civil affa'rs for sixty or
seventy thousand. It should be farthest
from their desires, and is indeed farthest
from the purpose and judgment of the best
minds oi these to do anything of this sort.
Indeed, in the course wo have hitherto
pursued, we have, we are happy to say,
drawn out commendations from these men
of both extremes on whose judgment we
most rely, aad whose co-operation is moat
to be valued. It has also the spproval of our
own judgment, and we shall continue it
regardless of the unkind ness of those who
apparently do not like it.
Two things are now neoessary to unite
the two sections of the United States to-
gether in feeling as well as in fact: A
liberal if not general amnesty toward the
Southern people, and the re-union of the
divided churehes. In regard to the latter
there are already most encouraging signs.
8ome time since Rev. Dr. Robeit Paine, of
Aberdeen, Mississippi, one of the talented
and venerable Bishops of the M. R Church,
South, in a public address, now generally
published, earnestly advised all the South-
ern people to submit to the authority of the
Federal government, and to unite in efforts
to bring about once more peaee and pros
peiity in the whole country. Bishop
Paine, too, was a warm Southern man, and
a friend of Mr. Davht; but he is also a man
of fense and Christian principle, and feels
bound by all bis obligations to use all his
influence to heal the wounds which war has
made, now that the conflict Is over.
And but a few days sicce a grave and
representative bidy of ministers of the
Episcopal Church, w'th the accomplished
Bishop Gregg at their head, met together
in this city, and by solemn eoc'e iastical
action, reunitad with the parent fold of
their church frrm which t'ley had been
separated by the politioal division of the
cruatry. And now the venerable Bishop'
Andrew, upon whose case the Methodist
Church divided in 1864, he having married
a lady owning a few slaves, and in conse-
quence of which the Southern Methodist
Cburoh waa established, utters bis voioe
in favor of peace and unity. His address,
published in another oolumn, ia
beautiful for its elegant simplicity
and ripe chari'y. No • man in
tba South baa suffered more iu feeling in
consequonce of the unhappy divisions of
the country, and has bad more to forgive,
according to the Southern standard of
judgment, than Bishop Andrew; and yet
no man excels bim in his efforts to promote
harmony, or in the Cbrlatian kindliness of
his own chastened spirit. And no man
will hava more weight with the great body
of the people, especially of his own Church;
for he has traveled and preached to delight-
ad and edified thousands all over the South-
ern States, and is universally beloved.
Now that the Union ia restored, and we
have given up the once cbarlahed hope of a
separate nationality, ail good men should
cultivate the good of their whole country,
and illustrate tha truth that
"Peaoabatobet victories ,
Ho lots renowned ttun war."
The Galveaton "Special" of the News
now explains satisfactorily the foundation
of his error in supposing tiiat the Amnesty
Proclamation doea not reatore to political
rights. Tha eopy ha hai, by an error of
soma printer or other, is made to read that
those who accept it are restored to all rights
OF property, while the reading of the copy
pubiiahed by us ia rlghta AND property.
That this is the true reading is evidenced
first by itsmahing better senae, and second
by its being suppcrted by the comments of
the whole New York and New Orleans
press,which without exception, that we have
yet seen, speaka of the proclamation as
restoring to the rights «of oitlsenship. If
tha " Special" finds on looking into this
matter that he baa been mistaken, will be
have the magnanimity to acknowlekge his
error and withdraw tha ill-toned remarks
founded upon it.
We learn from the Mobile papers that
Brevet M%j. Gen. C. C. Andrews ia in com-
mand oT the Poat and Dis'riot of Mobile.
Only a few officers and men are allowed
to vlalt the city, on passes only. The city

ness aad health are anforoed by military
authority. All persons within tbe limits
of tha poat without visible means of sup-
port are taken into custody aad put to

Hon. Wm. L. Sharkey has been appoint-
ed military or provisional Governor of the
State of Mississippi. Judge Sharkey was
tbe President of the celebrated " Nashville
Convention." Ho has long been consider-
ed one of tbe most eminent and accomplish-
ed jurists of tbe South. He was, we be-
lieve, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of
the State at the time Mississippi seceded.
Ho was originally what was called a South-
ern rights man, but would not forsake the
Union. Ho is highly qualified for his posi-
Y<fctcrd>iy morning, about 10 o'clock,
the Galveston train arrived, bringing the
81th Iowa and five oompanies of the 114th
Ohio regiment?. Shortly after the arrival
a m>st onfor uuate affair, occurred on the
streets, in which a negro coik attached to
one of ihe regiments, was killed. We
were unable to aeoertain what tbe cause
of the affair was. The oocurrence is to
be much regretted on account of the pe-
culiar situation of affairs. Tbe men of
these regiments appear to be v;ry orderly
and we 1 disposed. One regiment was
quart erad at the new Court House. Tbey
went to work upon tbe building at once,
and having thoroughly cleaned it, they
fixed it up far more comfortably than
many of its former occupants would have
deemed possi>le. We presume they are
to remain for some time Another por-
tion of tbe troops occupy tbe Shrimpf
House. Tbe officers' quarters are at the
resideno!) of W. M. Bice, E-q.
It will be seen by our telegrams to-day,
that Gen. Granger assumes command of
Texas. His first orders are much the same
as those issued by the United States author-
ities in other States, and fur which we have
endeavored to prepare our readers hereto-
fore. They contemplate the delivery of all
government property at depots, appointed
for the purpose; the declaration of illegit-
imacy of all legislative acts after secession;
the changing of the condition of the negro
into free lubor, and not free idleness, etc.
This is what we have expected -and endeav-
ored to lead our readers to expect. The
people are for the most part prepared for
the change, and ready to acquiesce in it.
As these orders are of great importance to
our people, we will keep them standing a
few days. Gen. Granger, we understand
will have his headquarters at Galvestop.
He is to be in Houston to-day.
Wo bad the pleamre of meeting C> lonel
Claik, of the 84th Iowa, yesterday, who
will, for tbe present, oommand the Post of
Houston. We find him an agreeable gen-
tleman. He informed us that it is not
contemplated to interfere witb tbe civil
administration of affairs any more than
can be avoided. Further conversation
with him and ether officers, of whom we
met sevota', left a favorable impression,
and the belief that whatever ill feeling
belonged to the late war was dismissed
witb the o!ose of it. We trust further ac-
quaintance with our people will increase
the goad feeling which now all are disposd
Gen. Granger, we understand, is to be in
command of the military department of
Texas. Gen. Sheridan, it seems, Is not com-
ing to Texas, as had been supposed, but
will be in command of tbe whole military
division West of the Mississippi, with head*
quarters at New Orleans. Of Gen. Gran-
der, the Mobile News says :
" One common feeling of regret was man-
ifested that Gen. Granger is so soon to leave
us. His habit of clear and broad practical
thinking, and his great administrative abil-
ity, would have helped us signally in read-
justing our political relations. He is a man
however, who by force of his genious, will
create opportunities, and whether in Texas
or Alabama, will be as influential iu giving
a right direction and tone to political ideas
as he will be invincible in campaigns and
battles. In his high future career which
awaits him, and which will unfold itself,
slowly or swiftly accordingly as the emer-
gencies shall be small or great, he will car-
ry witb him the abiding confidence and es-
teem of our whole community "

Mr. Ex-Secretary of War, Dana's, Chi-
cago Republican, says that CouDt Montho-
hn, French Minister at Washington, is
puzzled—and some other people are puz-
zled as much as the Count Montholon—to
know what the Government can want witli
thirty or forty thousand troops m Texas,
now that all the rebels in that region have
suri enderei and gone home. Count Mon-
tholon, says the Republican, is afraid
that these terrible cavalrymen who are go-
ing to Texas may not be thoroughly ac-
quainted with the geography of ih%tooun-
trjr, and that some of them may, by mis-
take, get on the wrong side of tbe Rio
Grande, to the great annoyance of Maxi-
milian, Napoleon III—and Count Montho-
lon. Wherefore, remarks Mr. Dana, it is
said the Count Montholon will demand of
Mr. Seward an explanation. Of course
Mr. Seward will explaiu—he is always
ready to make an explanation—and the
Count Montholon will still wonder what
can be the use of so many Yankee soldiers
Frazer's Magazine says that a young
Unitarian minister of his acquaintance
onoe visited the region of the Potomac to
plant some of his doctrines, but was per-
suaded by a sagacious physician residing
there that the thing was medically impossi-
ble. " Everybody almost in this northern
necic of Virginia has more or less the liver
disease; they are sure to be Calvanists.
You'll do more near the mountains. You'll
never get the belief in everlasting hell out
of this neighborhood, except by better
drainage, with less billions fever."
