The organ of slavery rested upon the
laws of the war and the right of the vic
tor to the life and services of the vanquish

tofore prevailed in some shape or form and
at some time among nearly every people on
When these States were the dependencies
of Great Britain, it was introduced among
them against their expressed wish and‘re
monstrance. The Colonies made repeated
efforts to prevent its importation, but all in
vain. They could not obtain the consent of
the "then "mother country. In fact, the
original draft of the proposed Declaration ot
Independence by Mr. Jefferson made the
capture of slaves on the coast of Africa, and
their importation in this country, one of the
chief charges in the indictment thus pre
sented against the King of England.
Thus introduced, it became a part of the
social system, more or less interwoven with
the institutions of the country.
On the occurrence of the revolution, it
was the reorganized condition of labor in
nearly evc r y one of the States, but to a
greater extent at the South on account of its
adaptation to the climate and to the cultiva
tion of its productions and its ready accom
modation to the character of its capital. It
formed one of the domestic relations ot life,
it bad entwined itself, with the force of
centuries, around the structure of public af
fairs. It was sanctioned and regulated by
law. The whole social and political system
at the South rested upon it as a base. It had
become the normal condition of organized
toil. Forming a very large element in the
actual wealth of the country, it provided
the class by whose labor the great staples
were produced. The Constitution of the
United States had committed exclusive ju
risdiction on this subject to each State with
in its own territorial limits.
The whole civilized world was arrayed
against its existence. The revolution was
scarcely over, and independence secure, be
fore the agitation of this question began.
The first memorial for promoting the aboli
tion of slavery and the relief of those held in
bondage, was introduced into Congress by
Benjamin Franklin, in February, 1790, and
after a long debate was referred to a com
mittee, who made the following report, which
.Resolved, That Congress have no authority to In
terfere In the emancipation or slaves, or in the-treat
inent of them wtthln any of the States; It remaining
with the several States alone to provide any regula
tions therel i which humanity ami true policy require.
From that day the discussion increased in
virulence and strength, from year to year.
The controversy shook the Republic to its
very foundation, until finally, upon the ques
tion of the competency of Congress, directly
or indirectly, to exclude this institution from
the territories of the Union, and upon the
legal capacity of a people, while in a territo
rial condition, to prohibit its existence, the
North and South, with well defined geograph
ical limits, took issue. All compromises
proved futile, and war ensued.
The slaveholding States, through their
Conventious, declared their secession from
the Federal Union, and for four long
and weary years armies met on contending
plains, and the soil of the South has been
resonant with the sound of armed hosts, and
ensanguined with the blood of her bravest
sons. Burnt villages and towns, desolated
fields, and the ruin of all material prosperity,
attest the severity and tenacity of the Strug-
The contest is over. The last of the Con
erate forces have surrendered. The South
has been overcome. The authority of the
General Government has been re-asserted.
The people have Accepted these facts, and in
every one of the States lately struggling tor
separation, Provisional Governors have been
appointed, and Conventions of the people
summoned to re-adjust their Constitutions to
the altered condition of the laboring agricul
tural class, who have passed, by the results
of war, Irom a condition of slavery to that
' Since the restoration of peace President
Johnson has made it a pan of the oath of
amnesty, on the taking of which alone ca
pacity lor suffrage and office is obtained, “to
abide by aqd faithfully support all laws and
proclamations which have been made during
the existing war with reference to the eman
cipation of slaves.” To this all who have
received the oath have given their assent.
The status of the colored race, as freedmen,
is definitely fixed. The fundamental laws
are to be modified in accordance with this
palpable and evident fact. The very form of
the pardon granted by the Executive seta
forth that the same shall be void and of no
eff.'Ct if the applicant shall thereafter at any
time acquire any property whatever in slaves,
or make use of slave labor. It may, there
fore be stated as the settled and ascertained
policy of the Administration, as the one ab
solute and essential pre-requisite for the re
admission of any of the seceding States to
their original condition and representation in
the Federal Union, that their respective Con
stitutions shall acknowledge this state of
affairs, and declare “that neither slavery or
Involuntary servitude shall be allowed other
wise than upon conviction for crime."
The Convention to be elected on Monday
next will have this amendment to act upon.
The people of Mississippi in Convention as-;
sembled, the first which has officially given
utterance on this subject, have passed a res
olution declaring their adhesion to this view.
The fact is that the institution is forever
gone. Recent events have utterly destroyed
its utility. It has performed its mission.—
We must now look to free toil for the culti
vation of our lands. Thu necessities both of
capital and labor must adjust tbemselves in
some harmonious way. The shock which
such a great change in the aocial system has
produced, will of course require time, pa
tience and energy. But the mind and the
will must concur for success and not for
doubt. To this consummation the Sonth has
acceded. Pausing upon other issues, on
this her people are united. They receive it
as the decree of Providence and as one of
the results of an unsuccessful appeal to arms.
As an evidence of the sentiment on this
subject we insert the following article from
the Mobile Register, one of the leading jour
nals of the Gulf States. It is evidently from
the pen of the Hon. John Forsyth:
“In respect to the emancipation oath, We
give the counsel to our readers upon which
we have acted ourselves. Whether the act
of emancipation has been legally and consti
tutionally completed or not, slavery i& dead
as Juliua Cseser. No human power can re
surrect it, and we candidly admit that If that
power rested in our single hand, we would
not. under present circumstances, exert it.
And we can say this much without changing
a single one of our life long opinions on the
beneficence of the Institution or the very best
form or organized labor, for mankind at
Urge, and for the well being of the slave.in
particular, „ But what are our opinions Worth
against the fixed and unalterable sentiments
01 the civilized end semi-civilized world t-*
What do thev avail when the sword has just
declared against them 7 The inexorable fact
is, that the Institution of slavery is uprooted
in the land, and if we had the power to re
establish it, it would be through such a pro
cess of conflict and turmoil as to make the
same not worth the candle. It is the part of
good sense to accept facts, and the death of
American slavery at the South is one of those
unchallengeable facta we accept without a
moment’s hesitation. The deed is done ; let
us make the best of it, and shape our course
upon it as a term fait accompli Now, the
deed being virtually done and beyond recall,
let it be constitutionally done, aud let every
Southern State in Convention at once en
dorse the decree which the will of God, the
edge of the sword and the voice ol the nations
of the earth seem to have united in pro

give the following details of the ravages of
the pirate Shenandoah :
The Shenandoah had destroyed the barque
Susan Abigail, near the Gulf of Anadyr. It
seems that the Susan Abigail had San Fran
cisco papers of the 10th of July, containing
accounts of the collapse of the rebellion, but
the pirate Waddell would not credit them, as
they came from Northern papers, and an
nounced his intention of burning every
American vessel he could find. After des
troying the Susan Abigail, the pirate went
toward’* Behring's Straits and the Arctic
Ocean. At St. Lawrence Island he burned
the ship General Williams, of New London,
and the next morning he burned five more
vessels. The barque General Pike had ar
rived at San Francisco with the crews of the
seven vessels, viz -.—barque Susan Abigail,
ship General Williams, barque W. C. Nye,
of New Bedford ; barque Gipsy, of New Bed
ford ; barques, Catharine, Nimrod, and Isa
bella, all of New Bedford.
The paroled prisoners report that Captain
Nye, of the Abigail, must have succeeded in

THE INDIAN WAR.
Hon Atroclilet—Attacks upon Govern
ment and Emigrant Train*—Massa
[From the Denver News, loth Inst.]
Mr. Armstrong, of the Overland Park Sta
tion, and F. S- Murphy, of the Seven-Mile
Ranch, give us particulars of Indian outrages
that occurred between Big Laramie and Rock
Creek last Friday.
A simultaneous attack was made all along
the road between the two points named. At
one point the Indians attacked a single emi
grant wagon, coming up and professing
peaceable intentions, telling the old man,
who was driving, not to be alarmed, as they
would not hurt him. When they arrived
near enough, a single arrow was shot through
his body, killing him instantly. His wife
and two children were killed, the body of
the wife being shockingly mutilated—our in
formants say, “literally disjointed, her head
scalped and skull stove in.” They then cap
tured three females who were in the wagon,
aged respectively about eleven, eighteen and
twenty-five years. Starting from the spot,
they had gone about two miles when the
youngest gtrl, who continued to make an
outcry, had seven arrows shot into her, and
was left to die.
The wounded girl was found and taken to
Laramie, where she received surgical atten
tion and is now doing well, with a prospect
of recovery. She is spoken of as being quite
intelligent, and say 9 the first arrow that
wounded her was fired by a white man.
Perry Abbott’s train was attacked three miles
this side of Rock Creek, and had lively fight
ing for five miles, when the Indians retired.
The train sustained no injury, and the men
think they killed four ot the attacking party.
A Government train was attacked at Seven
Mile Ranch, between Cooper’s Creek and
Little Laramie. The party with the train
succeeded in keeping their assailants off, and
sustained no injury. Half way between the
Ranch and Little Laramie another train was
attacked —particulars not known. One in
cident of the day deserves especial mention.
The Indians, after killing Sergeant Cooley,
captured bis horse and tied the leading reins
of two of their ponies to him. The horse
broke away from his captors and led the two
ponies with him- A boy soldier, whose
horse bad been token away from him by a
cowardly white man, who wanted to get out
of danger, caught the horse and fought his
way safely in with the prize. Twelve white
persons were killed, one wounded, and two
captured in all the attacks made during the
dajr- General Conner, with a force of four
thousand men, left Fort Laramie on the 27th
for Powder River
A sensational play called The Assassina
tion of Lincoln is in preparation at a Munich
theatre. The author, who lives in the neigh
boring town of Regensburg, and who must
be a very stupid follow, thought the play
would be better with the act of murder
omitted, and wrote the manager to that
effect. The manager, determined not to lose
a “thrilling effect,” telegraphed to the play
wright, “He mutt be assassinated in the
theatre. You wifi arrange vour plans ac
cordingly." The watchful Prussian police
of course scented regicide and revolution in
so suspicious a despatch, and summarily ar

SAVANNAH, GEOHGIA, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1865.
Reconstruction of a Commercial View.
[From the St. Louis Republican.)
The Philadelphia Age exhibits in a strik
ing light the vast importance of the whole
country of the speedy reorganization of the
Southern States, considered in its material
aspect, commercially and financially; and
it takes the best way of enforcing it by pre
senting the results ot the labor, aud the
character and amount of the products of the
South previous to the late unhappy war. To
meet the liabilities imposed upon the people
by taxes, to liquidate the principal and pay
the interest of the enormous war debt, it is
absolutely necessary that the resources of
the country at large should be developed
and stimulated so their fullest extent; and
it is only by an enlightened, generous and
liberal policy that we can relieve the burden
which is now weighing down the business,
capital and energies of the North. Facts
and figures prove how much the Southern
States used to contribute to the uational
I wealth, and how necessary they are to the
i restoration of our former prosperty. It
I would be a short-sighted policy, indeed,”
1 says the Age, “to allow nearly onc-half ol
I the nation to become partially unproductive
at this time, in order to try the experiment
! of carrying out a theory in politics and in
: dustrial economy of doubtful expediency at
! best, even if practicable We cannot afford
j to gamble with the material prospects of the
nation at this period to satisfy sectional
The total export value of the cotton crop
of the United States was, in 1830, $30,000,-
000 ; in 1864, $64,000,000; in 1850, $72,000,-
000; in 1856, $128,008,000; in 1858, $161,-
000,000; in 1860, $232,000,000. If only
one-third of the crop of 1860 can be raised
next year it will yield at least $200,000,000,
for it will certainly be worth three times as
much per pound as it was then. To this
must be added other crops and products of
the South, amounting so upwards of $700,-
000,000, exclusive of rosin, turpentine, tar,
and many other important articles. Thu
manufactures of the South are also worthy
of consideration, which were considerably
over $200,000,000 in 1860, and have since
vastly increased, owing to the stimulus of
necessity created by the war.
It is in this view that the question of the
reorganization of the Southern States ap
peals—not to the radical politicians—but to
sensible business men, the bankers, mer
chants, capitalists, and political economists
of the nation. “What is wanted,” as the
Age justly observes, “is reorganization
based upon a wide, broad, catholic, busi
ness principles, and not upon the narrow,
fanatical opinions of secticnal politicians.”
We earnestly' commend its concluding words
of wisdom to the serious consideration of all
who are not blinded by their sebemea of
“The people of the South are heartily de
sirous of restoring the old order of things.—
They are making the most and best ot the
materials that the war has left them. They
are trying to systematize their labor and
make it useful. Aud this is the part of wise
men. It is what is needed to bring up the
South to its former standing, and it will
minister in a practical way to the prosperity
of the whole nation. The earlier the business
aud trade of the South is put upon such a
footing as will bring a return to the National
Treasury, the earlier will the people ol the
North feel the load of tbeT taxation lighten.
Better to have a productive South, such as it
was in 1859, and a free Government, than an
impoverished South, and a military despot
ism. The common sense of the American
people cannot fail to bring them eventually
to this conclusion.
“The practical way of looking at the ques
tion should arrest the attention and challenge
the sympathy of the solid men of the nation.
They can, and for their own sakes they must,
take the matter out of the hands of sickly
sentimentalists and radical negro equality
politicians. The best interests of the whole
nation demand this of its citizens, without
regard to their political opinions upon other
Birtii of o Siamese Prince.
The Siam Times of the 25 of May last thus
records anew arrival:
“At the Royal Palace on 23d inst., at sb.
24m., p. m., her excellency Chauchom Manda
Tblang, the eldest royal lady of his Majesty
the supreme King of Siam, gave birth to a
royal son, being the seventy-third royal off
spring and thirty-seventh son.
“The new born Prince is the ninth off

who is the eldest daughter of his excellency
Pbya Bamroroacti, Rn officer minister of the
royal household. The nobleman is an old
and devoted servant of his present Siamese
majesty, having entered his Majesty’s service
when only eight years of age.
“The new born Prince is a full brother of
her royal highness Princess Somawati, who
is very generally known to foreigners.
“The name of this new Prince will be his
royal highness, Prince ‘Chroon Reddhitege.’ ”
The Wild Man on the Rampage. —A day
or two since the baboon, or “Wild Man,” on
exhibition at the Sixth-street Museum, taking
advantage of the negligence of his keeper,
escaped from his cage to the upper story of
the building, from whence he dropped, with
out at all disarranging his internal economy,
into the yard, three stories beneath. Adjoin
ing there is a clothing store, into which bis
apesbip made an entry through the back
window, and forthwith busied himseld in in
specting a pile of ready-made clothing which
laid conveniently in the rear of the establish
ment, the proprietor of which was, at the
time, taking his siesta in an easy chair. The
chattering of the ape aroused him from his
slumber, when, opening bis eyes, he saw
what he first concluded lo be an imp, busily
engaged trying on a pair of kerseymere in
expressibles. The astonished storekeeper
was for the moment overwhelmed with fear,
and but for the opportune entry of thp
keeper, who was in search of his erratic
charge, the bewildering effect might have
proved too much for his nerves.— Cincinnati
The Washington correspondent of the
Boston Journal telegraphs : “It is believed
by many high in authority here that the
government will soon adopt anew policy in
regard to the pardon of rebels against the au
thority of the United Utntes granting amnes
ty lo the great majority, and holding for
trial on the charge of treason only the most
prominent actors in the great rebellion.”
The State Department has ordered that pa
roled prisoners against whom no special
charges are pending can obtain passports to
foreign countries on condition they do not
return without the special permission of the
President. It is said that Gen. Lee will avail
himself of the order and leave the country.

the publication of the order mustering out
certain generals was unauthorized- A des
patch In the New York Times also states
that there is no troth in the report that all
’he negro troops are to be mustered out of

Gov. Moore wi)l remain in Cuba until his
fate is decided at Washington. Magrader is

communicate with his friends, but desires to

Car amah Affair*.— I The Canadians, says
the Philadelphia Gazette, have already to r
certain extent initiated the proceedings which
their delegates in the Detroit Commercial
Convention hinted would be the result of the
non-renewal by the United States of the re
ciprocity treaty. This was nothing less than
the throwing open of the ports along the bor
der and encouraging smuggling. Smuggling
is now carried on to an almost unlimited ex
tent along the frontier, and, it is said, with
the knowledge and connivance of the Cana
dian ministry. The condition of the province
is very unpromisiug. The taxes and other
burdens are so heavy aud the crop and trade
prospects so poor that thousands of the in
habitants have already sold out and emi
grated to the far west. Real estate has fallen
seventy-five per cent, in value within the
past eighteen months, and it is estimated
that in the city of Toronto alone there are
thirteen hundred empty tenements.
The Virginia Freepmen. —A letter receiv
ed in Washington from an old resident of
Prince George county, Va , expresses great
apprehension in reference to the ability of
the freedmen to support themselves during
the coming Winter. Almost the entire coun
try was devastated by our army last Summer
and Winter, owing to which the inhabitants
have been able to cultivate but a small por
tion of their farms. The same apprehension
is expressed by many people throughout the
South, and is, in some cases, justified by ex
isting and prospective circumstances.
A number of persons in the county of
Stafford,Va., have been swindled by a knave,
who informed them that he waa an agent of
confiscation for the United States, and that
unless they paid him fifty cents per acre for
each acre of land now in corn, their land
would be sold, and they would never be al
lowed to repurchase it. By this statement,
and by means of threats, be succeeded in
obtaining, in several instances, all the money
which the persons had at the time.
A Washington despatch says—Among the
applicants for pardon on Monday last, was a
man with a letter from a distinguished poli
tician to the President, saying that the hear
er was a poor man, not possessed of five hun
dred dollars, which he understood was ne
cessary to procure such a document, and,
therefore, trust the President will grant the
pardon. The President said the letter was a
gross insult, and the man was conducted to
The West is calling loudly for retrench
ment in Government expenditures. The
Cincinnati Gazette—black as charcoal in
politics—says “we want no standing prepar
ation for future wars. The genius of the
people will be sufficient tor that. Our Gov
ernment will be compelled to introduce
strict economy in every department of the
service, in order to endure the burdens that
the rebellion has brought."
