POUTICAL. Wade Habdpton, Uie dispatoheo from Washington report, has had a lengtiiy interview with the President in regard toSonthCarolinaaffairs. The eonversation, we are told, was of a frer and general character, and related primarily to the Question as to tlic probable condition of tha State in case the troops should be wstlulrawn, there being no disonsstoB of Chamberlain's right or titlc to the Oovernorship. Hampton clnimed that there was an imperatrre necessity for Rpocdy action, as the planting iotercsts of SoutU Carolina are in absolute danger of dostruction by reaaorj of the present onseftlod state of aiïairs, tho labor system being now in process of disintegvalion. Business, he wiid. was paralyzed and credit ahnost entiroly destroyed tlmmghout the State in consequencc of its present nnsettled condition. Hanipton plcdged the President that in case the troops were called off tliere should be no mob violence, and that only legad processes would be reeortcd to t cstahiish che aaprema(v of bis Government. He said he possessed both the purpose and the power to protfeot all persona and classes alike in their legal and conatitutional righta. The President, in reply. sta(od substnntially that it was bjs purpose to carry out in good faith the promises of his inaugural address, :is he waa doeply anxiouá to bring peace and quiet to the distra'cted portions of the country, and he was satisfice! this resiüt would be attained in a very short time. A committee appointed by the Charleston Chamber of Oümmeree, which liad accompanied Hampton to Washington, also called apon the Preident, and read au address setting forth the condition of aiTairs in South Carolina, and pleading for the reeognition of Hampton. lx regard to appointments. the President atated to a friend, the other day, that af (ir the Southern question was disposed of he would be in a poKÍtion to pay the required attention to them. lt was inferred froin liis conversation that no important annoiinccmcuts would be made unül the special session of Congress, luit before that time he should oonsider and decide apon whatever changes it is necessary to malie....
