The Savannah Daily Herald. 8. W. Mahon & Cos pROfRiPTOM. Samesi W. Mason, Editor. SAVANNAH, SATURDAY, JULY 8, 1565. For Local Sailers 9e* Third Page. FLVAXCIAL PROSPECTS OP THE COUXTRY. For the past two weeks the financial pros pects of the natiou have undergone a very fa vorable change, which improvement is owing principally to the conviction now established abroad, bat which required a long time to obtain, that this nation is stronger, healthier and more prosperous than before the war, and.tbat its securities are safer investments than the paper of any other government in the world. # The demand for American bonds in Europe ba9 greatly increased of late. The New York Times says that every steamer arriving brings large orders, and in London, the five twenties have advanced to 69 8-4, which at the present premium on gold, is equal to 108- 1-3 in this market. Then we have a direct domestic cause for general prosperity, in the gradual opening of the great Southern producing country' and its markets lor the benefit of the nation. With the Southern ports closed, and de prived of cotton, rice and grain productions, so long an important element of the national commerce that their withdrawil from it/ had a crippling tendency, outside of the paralyz ing effect on the great Northern manufactur ing intere-ts, we were in the condition of a body suddenly deprived of the use of impor tant a emb'ers. Gradually, as Southern railroads are open ed, cropswill go into market to the nation's advantage instead of its detriment. North ern merchants will find again a safe and profitable trade in the whole vast South, and the Southern people, while beaefitling them selves, will aid, almost as much as those of the North, in the nation's recovery from the injuries they have inflicted in the last four years. We soon expect a revival, to nearly its old importance, of the coasting trade, and a gradual resumption, with many improve ments, oi all the former business relations be tween iforih and South, and between the United States and foreign nations. In all respects the financial prospects of the country are most flattering, and more encouraging to the Southern people than thoße of any other section, since they have long suffered unusual hardships, and are now rising to their old level of prosperity. ♦he yew provisional governor OF SOUTH CAROLINA Benjamin F. Perry, the news of whose ap pointnrent as Provisional Governor of South Carolina we arc enabled to give our readers thi9 morning, ha 9 long been among the most prominent citizens of that State. Mr. Perry was an active and influential politician, and was a member of the State Legislature for several years, representing one of the upper Districts. He was a gifted and powerful debater 1 and always entered with vigor Into the stirring- contests in the State Capitol. An influential man in society, and of eminent ability, Mr. Perry was called upon to fill many positions of distinction ; among which may be mentioned those of Dis trict Judge,Trustee of the Uriiversity of South Carolina, and Representative of Congress. Put life proudest distinction, 'doubtless, of Mr. Perry, and that which served him best was bis steadfast Unionism. As far back as the days of Tariff and Nullification excite ment*,ißenj. F Perry was distinguished for his Union proclivities and his opposition to any measures that would tend to awaken an tagonism or estrangement between the Northern and Southern sections of the coun try. It would seem his course in Congress was not less strongly marked with the true national spirit; for it will be remembered that in tbo course of the interview of the South Carolina delegation with the President, Mr. Johnson called to mind Mr. Perry, and spoke of him with warmth. The following is the newspaper report of tbo circumstance . ‘•President Johnson asked the delegates to submit whom they would prefer as "Provis ional Governor. To this they replied they had a list of five meu, viz: Aiken, McCla hany, Boyce, Col. Manning, late Governor, and B. F. Perry. All of them were spoken of as good men, but who bad been more or less involved in the Rebellion. Mr. Perry was a District Judge in the Confederacy un til it collapsed and is said to have a'iways been a good Union man and a gentleman of strict integrity. Tbe people certainly would respect him, and he could not fail to be ac ceptable. The President said he knew Benjamin Perry well, having served with him in Con gress. There was no spirit of vengeance or vindictiveness on the part of the Government, whose only desire was to restore the relations whictWbrmerly existed. He was Dot now prepared to give them an answer as to whom he should appoint; but at the Cabinet meet ing next Tuesday he would repeat tbe sub stance of this iuierview, with a hope to the restoration which the gentleman present ear ’ nestly desired.” FROM CHARLESTON, We have a cepy of the Charleston Courier of the etb, from which we take tbe follow ing items; The Focsth was celebrated in an appro priate manner, with an excursion down" the Harbor, a parade of the Home Guard, ex ercises in Zion’s church, a parade of Fire men and a fair. A Fouth-of-July Associa tion WS9 formed with Hon. A. G. Mackey as President. Ymx or Gfi». GuiatOßE,—Yesterday morn- ing we were favored with a visit from Major Gen.

Gillmore during the day, for the purpose of consulting him on matters relating to their personal inter ests. Toward evening a band took a posi tion on the balcony and discoursed elegant music, to the evident delight of a large crowd of citizens who assembled In the vi cinity of the hotel. At 6 P. M. Gen. Gill more and the officer? accompanying him pro ceedcd'to the rail road station and took cars for Orangeburg. The party are expected to return to Charleston to-day.

If is dated the thirtieth day of June, 1866. The following is the clause containing the appointment of Mr. Perry : Now, therefore, in obedienefe to the high and solemn duties.imposed upon me tne Constitution of the United States, and for the purpose of enabling the loyal people of said State to organize a State government, whereby justice may be established, do mestic tranquility insured, and loyal citizens protected in all their rights of life, lib erty, and property, I, Andrew Johuson, President of the United States, and com mander-in-chief of the army and navy of the Uuiied States, do hereby appoint Benjamin F.

The Coziens. Habeas Cor pus Cass;, Philadelphia, July 1.— I The 'consideration of Cozzena habeas corpus case was resumed in the Court this morning, Provost Marshal Frink making the proper return to the writ, under direction of General Cadwallader and the Secretary of War. The argument in the case was conducted by Judge Knox, but was not concluded. The case was then postponed until next Wed nesday. Important Order to Regimental Officer*. The Secretary of War has issued a very important and salutary order, intended to prevent the carelessness and neglect of com pany and regimental officers in charge of or ganizations about to be mustered out. If the men are not promptly paid off and dis charged upon reaching the place of muster out, it will be due solely to tbe failure of such officers to make out the proper papers before leaving the field. All such officer are to be reported and properly dealt with. Virginia.
