It is scarcely necessary, on the threshold of a busi ness re-union, I should repeat the warning so often given to my friends,—to beware of all those spurious and de'eterious compounds which, under the specious and false lilies of Imported Wines, Brandies, Holland Gin, Liquors, <fce., have been equally destructive to the health of our citizohs and prejudicial to the interest of the legitimate Importer. Many years of my past life have been expended in an open and candid atteiqpt to expose these wholesale frauds; no time nor expense has been spared to ac complish this salutary purpose, and to place before my friends and the piroiic generally; at the lrtwest possible market price, and in such quantities as might suit their convenience, a truly genuine imported arti cle. Twenty-five years’ business transactions with the largest and most respectable exporting houses in France and Great Britain have afforded me unshrpass cd facilities for our home market with Wines, Liquors, and Liquors of the best and most ap proved brands in Europe, in addition to my own dis tillery in Holland for the manufacture of the “Schie dam Schnapps.’ Tha latter, so long tested and approved by the med ical Faculties of the United States, West Indies and South America as an invaluable Therapeutic, a whole some, pleasant, and perfectly safe beverage in all cli mates and during all seasons, quickly excited the cu pidity of the home manufacturers and venders of a spurious article uuder the same name. I trust that I have, after much toil and expense, sur rounded all my importations with safeguards and di rections which with ordinary circumspection will in sure their delivery, as I receive them from Europe, to all my customers. I would, however, recommend in all cases where it is possible, that orders be sent direct to my Depot, 22 Beaver street, New York, or that purchases be made of my accredited agents. In addition to a large stock of Wines, Brandies, &c., in wood, I have a considerable supply of old tried for eign vines, embracing vintages of many past years, bottled up before the" commencement of the war, which I can especially recommend to all connoisseurs of these rare luxuries. In conclusion, I would specially call the early atten tion of my Southern customers to the advantage to be derived by transmitting their orders without loss of time, or calling personally at the Depot, in order to insure the fulliilment of their favors from the present large and yvell selected assortment.

All Citizens Should Qualify Them selves as Voters. - * Every Intelligent Ulan must See that Slavery is now ended. Those Who Remain in the Country should Support the Government. To the People of Georgia.—l feel profoundly impressed with a sense ot the obligation which I am under to you for the manifestations of yJmr kindness and con lideuce wljjch 1 have so often received. At four different elections you have honored me with your suffrages for the highest position Within your gift, and 1 have to the best ol' my ability represented you in the executive oi tice lor nearly eight yeais. While my duties have been of the most laborious and trying character, I feel the consciousness that 1 have labored with an honest purpose Jo promote your best interests. That I have committed errors is not denied; that they have been in tentional, yoHir conduct has shown you do not believe. During the period of uiv administration, the country has passed through a most try ing ordeal. The great questions at issue be tween the North and the South, having fail ed to find a peaCelul solution in the forum ot reason, have been submitted for decision to the arbitrament of arms, aud the judgment has been against us in the highest tribunal known among nations.. The contest has been long and bloody. Each party has learned to respect the manhood and the chivalrv ot the other. But the South has been overcome by the superior numbers and boundless resour ces of the North. We have no further pow er of successful resistance, aud no other al ternative but to accept the result. The government of the United States hav ing refused to recognize or tolerate the State governments which have existed uuder the (Jonfederate constitution during the struggle, and ordered the arrest of the Governors of these States, I was arrested and imprisoned after I had surrendered the Georgia State troops and militia, and had givqu my parole upon the same terms ! allowed to Gen. Lee and Gen. Johnston, and had received from the Major General, to whom the parole was given, the usual pledge of the faith of the United States, that 1 was not to be molested so long as I observed the parole, and obeyed the laws in force prior to Ist January, 18G1. Upon the fact being brought before the Pres ident of the United States, he ordered that I be' released upon my parole, and permitted to return home. l am embraced in ofte of the exceptions in flie President’s Amnesty Proclamation. I have received no pardon, nor have I taken any oath, nor arm 1 permitted to resume the exercis6 of executive (unctions. 1 was in the executive office prior to the commencement of the war, and by the Constitution of the# Slate then in existence, ft is declared that I shall hold till a successor is chosen and qual ified. 1 have twit it my duty to announce these facts to you, and as 1 can be of no fur ther service to my State, by attempting to hold the office of Governor, I hereby resign it into the bands fti the' people who have so long and so generously conferred it. upon me- VYhile taking my leave of you amWeliring to private life, i trust that it may not be con sidered inappropriate for me to add a few re marks upon what 1 consider the true inter ests and the duties oi the people of Georgia in the present hour. I have lately passed through several ot the .Northern States and have been in some of their largest cities; I have read their newspapers closely, have had interviews with public officials high in and have taken pains to ascertain both the policy of the government? and the popular sentiment ol the country,.on the sub ject of emancipation of the slaves of the South; and I beg to assure you there is no division of opinion upon the subject of imme diate abolition, it is decreed alike by the Government and the people. They have the power and they are determined to exer cise it, and to overcome all obstacles which we may attempt to throw in the way. In deed, they treat it as an accomplished fact, under the Proclamations of the late Presi dent issued as war measures necessary to the life ol the government. As matters now staudjto fight against it is to contend against manifest destinyj Besides, slavery has been so disturbed, and the slaves so demoralized during the war,;that it js a matter of great. doubt whether they could ever be kept in a state ol prqpelr subordination, and the insti tution made profitable in future. Under these circumstances the question arii-ts, what shall we do i Nothing that we cun do will prevent the result, and it is my opinion that any effort on our part to thwart the government on this great question, will ouly add to oar miseries and our misfortunes. The statesman, like the businessman, should take a practical view of questions as they arise, and do for those dependent upon him the best that can he done, under all the cir cumstances by which they are at the time surrounded- Applying this rule to our preseut condition, and mnemijeimg that revolution and war of ten sweep away long established usages, de molisb theories and change institutions, it is, in . myjudgmeut, the best that we accept the fate imposed upon us by the fortunes ot i war, and that we give up slavery at once, by PRICE. 5 CENTS the action of the convention, which it is sup posed will assemble under the cal! of the pro visional Governor appointed to re-organize_ the State government; that we organize a system of labor as speedily as possible, which will be alike just to the late master and slave; that we return to the Union in good faith and do all in our power, as good citizens, to relieve the distressed, repair the damages which have resulted from the contest, aud restore permanent peace and prosperity to the whole country uuder the old flag, to which all must again look for protection from the Atlantic to the Pacific. As I will give no advice to others which I r will not practice myself, I shall immediately do all which the constitution umUaws of my State will permit to emancipate my own slaves, and shall treat them as free, and give —■ them part of the crop, or such tijher wages as may be agreed upon for their future labor. During my sojourn there, I found among the people of the North, much less bitter ness than I had anticipated towards the peo ple ot the South. If we act prudently, and do nothing to cause uhneeessary agitation, or to provoke angry, unprofitable discussions, 1 think there arc strong reasons to hope that a sentiment ot justice and liberality will pre vail, so soen as vve have given up slavery, and the passions engendered by the unfortu nate and wicked’ assassination of* the late President have had time to subside. In making up their judgment upon cool reflection, it should be remembered by just men iu the North, that they are sitting as judges in their own cause, that their adver saries’ side of the question has ceased to be represented or heard, and that if they would restore unity, harmony aud permaheut-pros perity to the whole country, they must, while flushed with victory, exercise magnanimity to thjpr fallen foes, whose heroism they are obliged to respect. Otherwise though held in the Union by force, they could not expect 'he people of the South aud their postyUy to meet them iu future as friends and em brace as fellow citizens. I trust their good practical sense will teach them this, and that moderation and wise counsels may In future prevail on both sides. Foreign nations have looked with astonish ment upon the immense strength put forth by the two sections during the war. and they cannot fail the invincibility and power of -fernment, which unites in harmoniou. BOflcert the whole strength of the two gigantic-belligerents; while they would retPaily appreciate the diminished strength of this great power, if roots of bit terness are constantly springing up and bearing the frtiits of- discord and sectional hate. When slavery lias been abolished, I be lieve the present chief magistrate of the United States,.who, having sprung from the mass of the people, and by his industry* en ergy and ability having passed through al most every grade ot office from the lowest to the highest, may justly be styled a represen tative man, will cast his immense power and infliibnce into the|scale of equal lights mnd popular government, and will leave the States, when re-organized, the undisturbed manage ment ol their own affairs, including the ques tions of suffrage, police, the regulation of labor, <fcc., &c. I, therefore, recommend the , people ot Georgia to give his administration a cordial support. I also commeud every citizen, who is al lowed to do so, and who expects to remain in the country, to take the oath and qualify himself to vote, and to participate in the fu ture government of till State. Suppose the mass of our best citizens refuse to take the oath and qualify themselves as voters, under the rules prescribed tiy the President, what will be the result ? The lew who do qualify themselves, whatever may be their character, will elect delegates ot their own number to represent their respective counties in the convention which is to shape the constitution of the State for the future government of all. fcthink all should take the oath and ob serve it in good faith, and do all they can to elect their wisest and best men as representa tives, that all the different interests of the State may be protected as far as possible, 'and her honor and credit maintained against unwise and niijus#legislntion. Many con- 1 scientious men object to taking the oifth be cause they believe tl»e proclamation aud acts of Congress during the war, on the subject of slavery, are unconstitutional, aud they are not willing to swear to*abide by and support them. It must be remembered that the late proclamation of President Johnson tenders pardon to all who are not excepted,* if they take the bath. The pardon, then, is conditional, and while the President does not interfere with any oue’s opinions on the constitutional ljuestion, he requires as a condition to the clemency, that he who receives the pardon and is nliow ed to retain the balance of his property, shall give up his slaves. The proctamationjof President Lincoln declared the slaves to he free. To abide by and. support it is simply to treat them as free. Every intelligent man in Georgia who has taken pains to investi gate the question, must see that slavery is uow at an end. The oath simply requires that each so treat it. The other portion of Urn* oath is not objectional. Every man should be willing to support the coqstilutiou of a government if he intends to live under it, and to act the part of a good citizen. If he does not, lie should seek a home anil protection elsewhere. I will ouly add, iu conclusion, that I shall carry with me into my retirement a lively appreciation of the generous confidence which you have so long reposed iu me, and my constant prayer to God will be for your prosperity anil happiness. I am, very respectfully, Your fellow citizen And obedient servant, Joseph E. Bkow.v.
