J3ND OF THE MUDDLE.
The appeal of the Louisiana Com

partiality between the two contend

to adopt measures for the relief; of
A resolution has passed the Sen
ate appointing a committee to inves
tigate the State of affairs in both
Louisiana and Arkansas.
Public sentiment has forced Presi

question. He manifestly, set out

thfi npern nsnmers at nil barards. h
isiana . he gave his military positive

band of hegro usurpers, and set aside
the regular government of a sover

A CARD FR03I GENERAL EARLY.
XyxcnpcEa, Va., Jan. 6th,-1872.
Editor, of the Cliarlotte Observer : I
Your paper of the 4th lustant;was
sent to me by some one, and' Ifind
in it a communication .beaded "Re
ply Jto General Early,' s and signed,
"Rufns Barringer," in fc reference to
which it is proper that I should say
very few words.
. Having no, personal acquaintance
with General Barringer, or knowledge '
of his political statnsrwhen I saw, in'
the, Raleigh Sentinel, the letter to
which : he - appended : bis signature,
with the addition "Brig. Gen; C S. A
I supposed he was a Confederate , of
ficer who adhered to: the . 'principles
and traditions ; connected with '.our
late struggle,1 and, was ranxioua -tb
m'aintain for his State (the claim , of
having done more for the cause than
any. "I therefore wrote' my letter to
the Sentinel, to. show; that he was mis
taken as to some parts, and had mis
conceived my position, as 16 others.
I concluded that, letter with, a dis
claimer of all intention io place ? the
troops of my own State above those
of North Carolina, and somerem arks
applicable to the troops from those
States as well as others adding some
opinions in regard to. those wffo
proved recreant during the war as
well as since. ' This part fof the letter
seems to have' given mortal - offence
to General Barringer who ;quotes ;a
portion of my -remarks, and follows
them with a violent tirade . against
me. . - ' 'er- ,r l V ' 1 5 r l. -l '! :
I presume that his especial grievi
ance is to be found in the remark. I
made, that : "Now, I cannot endure'
one who has gone over to the enemy,
since the war. Though he be a Vir
ginian 1 regard bis crime as unpar
donable and worse than if hevhad 'de
serted in time of war." :; That remark
expresses my deliberate sentiment.
It was intended for those to whom it
is applicable, everywhere, rand it
seems that General Barringef flutters
to the ground, a. wounded pigeon.; ?
Had ! known .his character and
history as they are now exhibited, si
would not have thought it necessary
o answer his first letter, and I ; now,
ertainly, . deem it unnecessary to
take any further notice of him or his
