I prom the Charleston Courier of Tuesday.] 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 ed Thus tracing its existence, it has here tofore prevailed in some shape or form and at some time among nearly every people on the elobe. 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 wa9 adopted: .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- gle. 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 of freedom. ' 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 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 mulgating.” THU PIRATE SHBNANBOAH Detalli of Her Recent Exploits. AN ENGLISHMAN PURCHASING THE CAPTURED VESSELS. A British Vessel Supplying her with , Coal. Nw York, Aug. 25.—The latest San Fran cisco paper?, received by the Ocean Queen 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 notifying some of the vessels of the prox imity ol ibe pirate, as four were seen putting back soon after, and, with those notified by the General Pike, some thirteen were turned back. The General Pike was bonded by the pirate for forty-five thousand dollars, and two hun dred and seventy-one officers and men of the destroyed whale ships were put on board for San Francisco. Among those turned back by the General Pike were the Addison Fierce and a Canton packet, both of New Bedford. It is believed that the pirate will certainly destroy fifty more vessels, as they were all to the northward. The bark Richmond was also warned off. and sailed from Plover Bay for the Sandwich Islands. In conversation with Captain Smith, of the ship William Thompson, the pirate asked tlie news. Captain Smith replied that Presi dent Lincoln bad been assassinated. “ I was prepared to hear that,” said the pirate exultingly. He did not believe that Lee had surrendered. Among the people on the Shenandoah was an Englishman, who seemed to be prospect ing for the purchase of five vessels to put on a fine between Australia and New Zealand, and it was probable that be would purchase some of the captures made by the pirate. The officers of the Shenandoah talked of arming two of the whalers to go up and de stroy the whalers at points which the pirate could not reach, and were very desirous to enlist the captured crews. In some instances they were successful in obtaining men in this way. The Kanakas, an English vessel, laden with coal, was seen by the ship WilUam Gif ford, bound for the Shenandoah. THE INDIAN WAR. Hon Atroclilet—Attacks upon Govern ment and Emigrant Train*—Massa cres. [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 rested the gentleman to whom It was ad dressed. succeeded with some difficulty in making s satisfactory explanation, ana was released. 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 I fanaticism.” 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 partisan ambition. “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 questions. 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 spring and fourth son of the same mother, 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 Titles. 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. Mimtaby.—A Washington despatch says 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 service A Havana letter says, General Preston King and Walker left by the steamer Elder for England, Intending to go to Halifax ; Gov. Moore wi)l remain in Cuba until his fate is decided at Washington. Magrader is in Mexico. Kirby Smith remains here to communicate with his friends, but desires to return to Florida. 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 door. 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." SADDLERY, HARNESS, M. WM. H.
