Correspondence between the Savannah

[From the New York Herald, 20.]
The following correspondence has taken
Elace between a colored committee of the
Tnion league iu Savaunah and Senator Sum
Savannah, June 15, 1865.
Hon. Charles Sdmner, Boston, Mass :
Sir —We, the undersigned, committee of
the Union League of Savannah, Ga., have
the honor to present to you these our peti
tions to his Exce lency, Andrew Johnson,
President of the Uuiied States, signed per
sonally by the hands ol some three "hundred
ancl fifty loyal citizens. f We respectfully ask
that you will present them to his Excellency
tne President, and we beg that your honor
will use all your influence in our behalf, and
Very respectfully, your humble servants,
Jos. C. Jackson, Chairman; George R. J.
Dolly, Corresponding Secretary; Benjamin
W. Roberts, Peter Duncan, Joseph S. Tison.
Boston, July 8, 1865.
Gentlemen —Your petition asking for the
right to vote has been forwarded to me here,
with the request that I would present it to
the President. I regret much tba* «h
--r a>/iu wo»utngcon uas prevented" me
from doing this in person; but I have lost no
time in forwarding the petition to the Presi
dent, with my most earnest recommenda
You need not ask me to use influence in
your behalf. I cannot help doing so to the
extent of my ability.
Allow me to add that you must not be im
patient. You have borne the heavier bur
dens of slavery; and as these have ended,
be assured that the others will end also. This
enfranchised republic, settiug an example to
mankind, cannot continue to sanction an
odious oligarchy, whose single distinctive
element is color* I have no doubt that you
will be admitted to the privilege of citizens.^
It is impossible to suppose that Congress
will sanction any governments in the rebel
States which are not founded on the consent
of the governed. This is the corner slone of
republican institutions. Os course by the
■‘governed’’ is meant all the loyal citizens
without distinction of color. Anything
else is a mockery.
Do not neglect your work; but meanwhile
prepare yourselves for the duties of citizens.
They are yours of right, aud I do not doubt
that they will be yours soon in reality. The
prejudice of caste and a false interpretation
of the constitution cannot prevail against
justice end common sense, both of which are
on your side; and I may add, the constitu
tion also, which, when properly interpreted,
is clearly on your side.
Surrender of the Stonewall —The offi
cial correspondence attending the surrender
of the ram Stonewall to the United States
is published. The Spanish Minister declares
the reasons on which the demand for the
Stonewall wa9 made, insufficient, but, never
theless, turns her in to Mr. Seward, in order
to avoid “discussion without object.” He
requests that the Captain General of Cuba
be reimbursed in the sum of $16,000 for ex
penses incurred. Mr. Seward fully accedes
to these terms, and avails himself of the oc
casion to offer “renewed assurances of his
highest consideration.” %

j RY P. JEHU MALONE.
The multiplicity of elaborate essays and
orations wkich have appeared in the Ameri
can press or rung in deep and eloquent
reverberations throughout the College Hall
and at the public anniversaries, have been
prelusive to an age of mental inactivity, or
what is the same, total indifference to mental
culture. It is certainly difficult to realize
the wide-reaching influence, that universal
education wields over the destiny of nations;
and since common consent or a reciproca
tion of ideaß and aims cannot possibly exist
among mankind, no system of universal ed
ucation can ever be upheid. In sheer abso
lutisms and some few governments of mil
der type* coercive measures are adopted to
secure the intellectual advancement of all
classes, but in purely democratic stiuctures
it would perhaps be considered a circum
scription of political liberty, at once oppres
sive and unjust. But Blackstoue would
have a little individual freedom surrendered
for the common good, and certainly in our
country, where we, with cool determina
tion, anogate to ourselves the right of uni
versal suffrage—where the constitution guar
antees die elective fianchise to every one—
some elevated and independent regime for
the rapid progression of all classes in erudi
tion, is more vitally necessary than in any
other lafad on the globe. Intelligence should
rule the polls ; independence and high-toned
patriotism should distinguish the press ; and
it these renovations are not created, the elec
toral system will be, as heretofore, a monu
ment of corruptibility, and continued
revolution will be the inevitable re
sult. It is* true that sometimes
to polish intellects is tantamount to consum
mating talents and quickening predilections
lor operations that eventuate natioual sub
version and ruin, not to notice smaller crime*;
but it is the exception, not the rule, and be
comes a palitable subterfuge when brought
forth in argument against the improvement
of the mind. It is unmitigated uoust ns'e to
say that too much education exists any
wutre, lor it has been determined by philos
ophers iu a.l past time that a consciousness of
ignorance is the fiist of our discoveries, as
we climb towards the lofty piuacle of intelli
gence. Too much, then* cannot be seen
umoug any people, since the preservation of
social labrics, must be paramount to all oth
er earthly considei atious, and this with its
attendant qualifications lor virtue and in
tegrity, wilt secure to any great people an
establishment of their institutions as j/ereq,-
nial as the ebb and How of the tides. To
obtain this politically necessary improve
ment, let female education be something
more than a mockery. Ignorant mothers
seldom, if ever, bring up cuildren to lives of
greatness and usefulness. Besides, woman
wields over society at large au influence, gen
tle and imperceptible, though mighty iu its
results, it rnigut seem that we are witness
ing a decline in the human intellect —that
the vigor ot the mind is waning and deteri
orating by little as time advances; but this
is apocryphal to say the least; if we are de
clining iu anythiug it is in energy. There
are advantages commanded by tUe student
of this day, that his predecessors upon the
vast stage of life never kuew. Compelled to
master, by intuition, without the assistance
of books, and plodding moodily along when
the Still hour of midnight, revealed uu star
lighting up the vault ot Heaven, the man of
science prepared to establish facts for the'
wonder of all after time. Gazing into the
broad ocean-like expanse of most beautiful
amethyst of which he knew nothing, and
concerning which those whom he had el
bowed into oblivion had traced no intelli
gence, he was lelt without aid to solve the
problem, and to find the vast infinitude ol
revolving worlds with their magnificent re
tinue of attendants mysteriously identified
with his fate. It has been, and is, an age of
progression—the field of experiment and en
terprise is illimitable, and the mental stamina
ot the present, with proper application, will
present a versatility and depth not surpassed
in by-goue days. A little legislation upou
this subject plight not be out of place—it
would uot beau exercise of atbitrary,power
to build up and enforce an educational regime
when it will conduce to the advantage of the
country, and her best interests are thereby
to be indemnified.
The Interview of the South Carolina
Delegation with the President. —The
South Carolina Delegation, headed by Gov.
Perry, had an interview with the President
on the afternoon of Wednesday, the* 19th.
The New \ ork Times’ special dispatch says
that this delegationjwas suggested at various
town, meetings throughout the State, and the
members had been selected and were on their
way to this city before the news that Gov.
Perry had been appointed Provisional Gov
ernor of the State. Gov. Perry first heard
of bis appointment when he had'got seventy
miles from home. In the course of the inter
view ot this afternoon, Gov. Perry assured
the President that South Carolina would be
represented by her Congressmen in the month
ot December next, and doubtless by the first
day of the session; that the State would
adopt the amendment to the constitution
abolishing slavery; that the pariah system
will be abolished; that the Presidential
Electors will hereafter will be elected by di
rect vote of the people, and, in general, the
btate laws will conform to the spirit and
form of those of the Northern States, an and to
the Federal Constitution.
The * Speech of Gov. Perry at Green
ville, S, C.—The speech delivered by Benj.
F. Perry at Greenville, S. C., July 3d, is re
printed in full in the New York papers, and
is exciting no littb comment. The New
York Times remarks:
It is rather surprising to hear a South Car
olina mouutaineer like Mr. Perry—to say
nothing ot the delicate office he holds—de
clare that “in all history there is not a more
perfect model of a pure and great man,
(save Washington; than Robert E. Lee.”
One would have supposed that a fitter sub
ject lo r eulogy might have been found by an
official who lias gained bis present position
upon the faith placed by the Executive in
Mr. Perrys solemn disclaimers of any sym
pathy with secession or its advocates. But
allowance will be made for the sort of au
dience the Provisional Governor had befoie

po THE PATRONS OF THE PACIFICATOR. ~"*
The suspension of The Pacificator, the only Cath

stances arising mainly from want of means to defray
tho expense of publication. »
Ti.is announcement is made with extreme regret,
but, rely ing upon the deep interest and the generous
support beretoioic extended both by j.he Clergy and
Laity of the Church, as well as upon the nbeml pa
tronage received from the members of other denomi
nations, we sincerely trust the suspension will only be
l of a very brief duration.
In the present condition of the country, It is of par
amount importince that the Church should have an
organ in the South for the dissemination of Catholic
Doctrines, and the defence ol Catholic 'i cachings and
Tne sudden, radical and unexpected changes which
have taken place in ihe organization oi Southern in
stitutions, political, religious and social, make the
support or' a Catholic Journal in this section an im
perative duty on Ihe part of each and every member
of the Chureh.
If then the Catholics of the South desire the publi
cation ot this Journal continued let them go to woik.
without delay in its behaltl and sir soon ns a sufficient
number oi renewed subscriptions are received it will
again be regularly issued.
