SAVANNAH, WEDNESDAY, JUNE -«•
WE ?ROtLA«4IIOS OF GOV. HOI.DE.V OF
The proclamation of the new Provisional
Governor of North Carolina will, we pre
sume, attract much attention a« giving an
example of the policy to be pursued in the
ipstoration of the lately rebellions States to
their constitutional relations with the Fed
eral Government. The plan to be followed
in this work, as indicated by the proclama
tion of Governor Holden, is as follows :
I. A convention is to be held, composed
otfiy of such delegates as shall have taken
the oath prescribed, to support the constitu
tion of the United States, and to ‘’abide by all
aws and proclamations which have been
made during the existing .rebellion with re
ference to the emancipation of slaves
No person will be allowed to vote for dele
gates who shall not have taken the above
oath: still further, “no person not util affected
towards the Federal Government, ar.d r.ci loyal
thereto,” will be permitted to take said oath,
or to vote in 3aid election
IL The Convention thus assembled will
alter or amend the Constitution of the State,
to be submitted thus altered and amended
to the voters of the State for their acceptance
111. The election by the people of a Gov
ernor and Legislature is to be provided for
by the Convention ; and two Senators to
Congress will be elected by the Legislature
to represent the State of North Carolina.
The Governor then announces that he will,
by special authorization, appoint Justices ot
the Peace, and establish certain Courts for
the purpose of maintaining the laws, and
promoting the peace of society; also that he
will appoint the State Directors lor the vari
ous corporations in which the State is inter
ested, but will relinquish the control of them
for the action of the Convention.
Such is an outline of the programme to be
gone through in the re-construction of the
State of North Carolina. It seems to be ex
ceedingly simple and direct, and to allow the
State, as it were, to rise at a bound from a
position of subjugation and inferiority to one
of influence and equality. The full rights of
citizenship are granted to the people upon a
simple assurance of loyalty; and with the
assembling of the Convention vanish all tra
ces of territorial or provisional government
for the State, det we cannot see wherein
this policy should be distrusted as unsafe or
ineffectual. The Government will lose no
thing of loyalty among the masses, or of
strength in its fabric, by freely placing the re
sponsibilities of sovereignty, where it right
fully belongs in a republic, in the hands of
the people. It will certainly go a long way
towards restoring confidence in the justice
and purity ol the national administration, to
demonstrate thus practically that in the ui
umph of its puissance it can resolutely bid a
vast and elated section to lay aside its claims
to wrath and thirst for vengeance against a
vanquished and repentant people.
It will be specially noticed that the Pro
clamation is silent upon the matter of negro
suffrage, nothing being said in reference to
the delegates to the convention being elected
by the votes of the “whole loyal people,”
The views of the Governor upsu the posi
tion of the freedman, and of the administra
tion, which he may be supposed in some de
gree to represent, are, nevertheless, clearly
enunciated in the remarks which he appends
to the proclamation proper. In addressing
the colored people of the State, Gov. Holden
“lour race ha3 been depressed by your i
condition iu slavery and br the legislation ot
your former masters, for two hundred years,
it is not to be expected that yon can com- j
■irebend and appreciate as they should be !
comprehended and appreciated by a self- '
governing people, the wise provisions and
limitations of constitutions and laws'; or that
y*u can now have that knowledge of public
affairs which is necessary to qualify you to
discharge all the duties of the citizen. No
people has ever yet bounded at once into the
full enjoyment of the right of self-govern
ment. But you are free, in common with all
•onr people, and you have the 'same right,
regulated by law, that others have, to enter
flie pursuit of prosperity and happi-
Such words as these cannot be mistaken.
They indicate that President Johnsou is not
to be pushed back from tire position taken
by him in his proclamatiou establishing a
provisional government for North Carolina,
in 9pile of the clamor raised against him by
the Wendell Philips school ot politicians.—
The negro is to have the rights of a free
man. So much is irrevocably and finally se
cured to him. The promise of whatever else
he may qualify himself for, he again receives

WARNING TO THOSE WHO SELL Li

sentence inflicted by Juage Rundlet, of the
Second Provost Court, in the cose of two par

While we have never sympathized to any
great extent in fanatical movements for blue
law sumptuary enactments prescribing what
citizens shall eat, drink or wear, we still, in
common with all reasonable people, soldiers
as well as civilians, recognize the propriety of
such special restrictions and regulations for
the army as shall best couduee to thorough
discipline. The army regulations very wisely
dictate what a soldier shall wear, to a certain
extent what he shall eat, and restricts the use
of liquor except to the limited extent which
may be regarded as purely medicinal. It is
important to the efficiency of an army that
prescribed regulations shall be carried out as
regards uniforms and rations,and it is most im
portant of all, that enlisted meu shall not have
free access to intoxicating liquors.
Nothing is so demoralizing to troops, in
active operations, in camp or in garrison, as
drunkeness, and while it would be unjust to
class even a majority of our brave troops
among those who know not moderation and
must have their appetites curbed by law,
facts show that there are .always a sufficient
number who have no self-control to make
liquor-selling or liquor-giving to enlisted
men a crime, to say nothing of the sin of
intemperance and the encouragement of the
We know nothing of the circumstanaes
connected with this special case, except
