THE HEALTH OP SAVANNAH.
A friend informs us that letters recently
received from New York mention a report
in circulation there that yellow fever had
made its appearance in this eity. We ale
glad to have it in our power to state most
positively, that there is uot the slightest
foundation, in fact, for the report. Not
only, is there no yellow fever in Savannah,
but on the authority of practising physicians
of the best standing endorsed by our own
oliservation and experience, we do not hesi
tate to assert that the city was never freer
trom leveror sickness of every kind than it
is at, this time. loan experience of many
years we have never known the city to be
more healthy at auy season of tho year than
it *i9 at present. When wo consider that
August was a remarkably sultry month,
that our city is full of uuftcclimated persons
from the North, and the poorer class of our
population greatly crowded, in consequence
of the scarcity of houses and high rents, it is
a matter of surprise, as well as a eauso for
gratulation, that tho general health has con
tiffined to be so unprecedentedly good.
Tlu* Fenian Movement in New York.
Our New York correspondence says the Fe
nians of that city chuckle not a little ovei
the alarm felt by the English Government, ns
shown through the columns of the London
Times and other organs of the aristocracy,
concerning the movements of the Fenians.—
They explain this alarm by not alone citing
the fact that the movement is the best or
ganized one ever started iu Ireland's behalf,
hut the equally important one that as soon
as the first blow is struck our Government
•will acknowledge the rebelling government
and award them the rights of belligerents; that
vessels without number will he furnished
them for naval operations and for blockade
running, and that while the Fcuians in Ire
land attract the attention of tha home gov
ernment, those in this country and elsewhere
will find profitable work to do ! n the British
possessions, which will make short work ol
any attempt to suppress the movement. This

PLAN OK BANK REDEMPTION.
The managers ot the New York city banks
are quarrelling over a plan for redeeming
their notes proposed for general adoption
Several meetings have been held, and it is
difficult, if it may not prove impossible, to
obtain general concurrence among them.—
The old and sound banks seem impressed
with the necessity for some plan of redemp
Where there exists a multitude of banks of
unequal credit and resources such a measure
‘s absolutely necessary to preserve uniformi
ty of value fora circulating medium of paper,
at a great financial and commercial ceutre
like New York, to which funds find their
way from ad parts ol the couiifv. To com
pel all banking institutions situated iu the
same place to receive the notes of other
hanks at par is to remove all checks against
ihe over issues of the weak bauks. Wherever
there has existed a number of these institu
tions, great inequality in the value of their
issues must resu’t unless some plan of re
demption is adopted. The plan recommend
ed by the committee appointed by the New
York banks indicated three places of re
demption, New York, Philadelphia and
Boston, as the three financial centres of the
States of which those cities were respective
ly the centres. Such a scheme of redemp
tion would giro a principle of uniformity to
.nr paper currency which It could not pos
sess by any other mode.
Before the war the New England States
hud a scheme of redemption that worked
most fcxrmoc.oua’y, c lied ’bffiS'iSolfc B ink
The Suffolk Umk of Riston was made ’he
ageut ot ail New England banks, with which
an account was kept, and with which they
had a fund or a credit equal to the average
i excess ot the ci.culaliou of each hank. I's
effect was that of a clearing house between
all the New England banks.
Those banking institutions of the city of
| New York, which have entered into the ar
rangement by which their respective bal
, auces ate adjusted at regular periods, cauuot
with any consistency retuse to enter into this
further arrangement ot a central redemption.
The Milledgeville Union says the Conven
tions of the States of Mississippi and Ala
bama have by decided majorities expressed
their disapprobation of the proposition to re
pudiate the debt of their respective States.
I and expressed the conviction that the Geor
gia Convention will do likewise. The vote
! of the Alabama Convention alluded to by the
j Union, was taken on the loth ult, and
I stood In favor of repudiation, 34 to .18 against
the proposition. Bit a telegraphic report of
the proceedings r.f the Convention published
several days since in this paper, states that
on the 28th of September, the Convention by
a vote of til to l'J, passed an ordinance re-
I pudiating ail debts contracted by the State
lin aid of tiie late war. The statement of the
debt of the State of Alabama on the ?4th of
May 1865, is as follows :
Old Bonn Debt, at 5 percent.
Interest, 2,757, OOP 00

As wc have received no Montgomery
paper, and have no detailed account of the
proceedings of the Convention other than the
brief synopsis furnished by our telegraphic
coires[MTudeut, we ate not fully informed iu
regard to the action of that body in reference
to the State debt. It will be seen by the
above statement that five and a half millions
of tiie debt of the State is old indebtedness,
and if tiie “new" 8 and C per cent, bonds
were issued previous to tiie war, the legiti
mate debt of the State would he some six
millions more, leaving only about seven
millions of war debt. If, however, these
bonds were issued since the secession of
Alabama lor war purposes, the war debt
would stand at $12,094,731. It is possible,
that the action of the Couvenrion on the I.lth,
alluded to by the Union, was in reference to
tbe debt contracted by the State for legiti
mate State purposes previous to the war,
and that only the war debt has been repudi
ated. There could be no possible justifica
tion of the repudiation of the former debt,
while the policy of repudiating a debt con
tracted by the Confederate States Govern
ment for war purposes, is a question that ad
mits of argument.
Tun South Carolina Convention, it ap
pears to us, has travelled out of the record.
It lms gone beyond the powers of a popular
body representing the sovereignty of the
State, having assumed a branch of tiie legis
lative authority. The imposition of taxes,
both as to mode and degree, is within tiie
exclusive jurisdiction of the Legislature. The
Convention has prescribed a poll tax and
fixed its amount. This is assuredly a legis
lative lunction or duty.
The Convention has revolutionized the
State government nearly entirely. It iias
converted it from an Oligarchy into a Demo
cracy. It has not only given the election of
Governor and electors of President and Vice
President to the people, but they have aban
doned the property qualification for the Sen
ate while returning it for the House. The
reverse of this should be the rule, in consti
tuting a Legislature, as it is the p"nctiee.
There is a counterpoise to this in making
the Executive term four years instead of two
years as under the old Constitution. This is
giving a more conservative tenure to the
A veto is conferred on the Governor, but
instead of a majority of two-thirds of both
Houses being necessary, a bare majority have
the power to pass laws notwithstanding tiie
Tue right of foreigners to vole after a resi
dence of three years without citizenship, wo
agree with I lie Char eston News, is auli-con
xervative. While the Convention was mak
ing radical changes in the organic lawi, this
feature of the old Constitution should have
been modified. It is supposed to offer, as a
compensation lor giving foreigners a share iu
the government of lLie's,ate, a premium ou
emigration. In the present state of the labor
question, this might be deemed an equiva
lent for such a concession On the whole the
changes must be deemed salutary. A better
equalization ot the taxes—and a longer term
ot the Executive office are decided improve
ments, while giving the most important elec
tions to the people is a concession to popular
privilege which assimilates Suiitu Carolina to
aud renders her more homogoucous with the
rest of tiie States of the Confederacy.
To the Editors of the Herald :
Gcntlkmks —ln your issue of the 30th

signature of Messrs, Guerard and Norwood,
in which my name has appeared ns one of
those gentlemen who were iuvited to attend,
and were also present at a meeting, at which
those gentlemen were nominated as Candi
dates for the Convention.

equally due to truth to say, that I retired

lutions, and knew nothing of the nomina
tions and final proceedings uutil the next
morning, when I saw the names of the can
didates announced for the first time iu the
colums of the Savauuau Republican.
This course I persued because, while per
sonally, I entertained no prejudices towards
the worthy gentlemen, whose names are ap
pended to the address, 1 did believe in so
Important a juncture, the utmost harmony
should prevai', and an cfTort made to unite
all parlies, aud that to secure this end, a
public meeting of citizens should tie called,
candidates uominated and their names sub
mitted to the people. These were the rea
sons for ray withdrawal. As I understood
the meeting to be informed, 1 did not deem
it necessary to make a formal application to
be excused therefrom, which, doubtless, may
have led to the belief that I was present du

not consistently do with the sentiments I en
tertained, and as above indicated.

TO THE VETERS OF CHATHAM
To morrow ap election will be held at the
I Couit House in thb city for three deb-gates
I to the State Convention,
j The principal objects of this Convention
| are to annul tbe Ordinance of Secession,
ratify the abolition of slavery, and to recoin*
, mend all measures that will contribute to plan
iug our State back into the Federal Union, in
|’be same enviaole position in which she
I stood before the war.
For this purpose we have before us three
or four sets of candidates. One set was
nominated, as we are informed through the
papers, at the sl#e or office of one of the
prompters of au impromptu meeting.
Avery speci'U and primte invitation was
given out to a few choice spirits by a very
influential prompter of this impromptu meeting,
and the meeting took place, as we an: in
formed by one of the prompters, “not
secretly or iu a corner,” and tbe nomination
Were we at all disposed to quibble we
might show this Impromptu up in very fiishy
colors, and were it not tor the ruptured state
of things we would most certainly do so.
Wc would ask why a few choice spirits, such
as Messrs. Holcomb, Russell, Swoll and a
few others were prompted to form an Im
promptu Meeting ? Why a few choice spirits
received ja-ivatc aud special invitations to
meet not "secretly or in a comer" to nominate
candidates, and why the bone and sinew
of the community was ignored. Who
prompted this f
Why was it prompted t and what induced
them to prompt this Impromptu f why were
the Mechanic. Laborer, and Uuion men left out
iu the cold I why were they not invited also!
Did the special cards of invitation run out
before they got to them ? We can hardly
forego the lemptatioa of answering these
questions, but as we said, we did not wish
to engender bitter feelings, we therefore
leave the answer to every true and honest
voter of Savannah.
Ou the heels of this Impromptu meeting, as
wc have been iuformed, a secoud Impromptu
meeting was called at the office of Julian
Hartridgo and Judge Chisholm; no prompter
has as yet said by what prompter or prompters
this second Impromptu was called, by who
or how those attended were invited! Were
special cards of invitation sent out to a few
choice spirits, and'did those cards run out as
in the first Impromptu before the bone and
sinew of the community, the Mechanic an.l
Laborer were readied ?
We are informed by two of the candidates
through the city papers, that Messrs. Rus
sell, Swoll and Gobel seceded from the first
Impromptu ; we can therefore in absence of
I letter information, easily conjecture, who
prompted the secoud Impromptu, how maoy
there were there ? who they were '! How in
vited ? and what they met for ? In short this
second Impromptu brought out a second set
of candidates. The ticket of tiie first Im
promptu consists of two Lawyers aud oue
Ex-Confederate Colonel. The ticket of the
second Impromptu consist of an Es-Con
federate Colonel, and two Lawyers. Where
in does one ticket differ from the other ? The
first was brought out by an Impromptu
meeting “not secret nor in a corner" —the
second was brought out by an Impromptu
meeting, not “secret nor in a corner." How
will the election of one ticket benefit the
people of Chatham county or the State,
than the other ! The candidates are all able
men, but tbe political positions of all are
about tbe same. “Strange that such high
contests should be swixt tweedle dum and
Let us now briefly review the Union tick
et. Some time ago the Uu'oa Club of this
city uominated three candidates for the State
Convention, but on reflection the men nomi
nated detei mined to resign, in order that a
Uuiou meeting might be called, aud that
evert/ Uuion man who chose to attend might
do so, and have a voice in the nomination.
Accordingly the meetiug was advertised
several days in both the city papers, aud
furthermore, iu order that all might be noti
fied and have a chance to attend, bills were
posted in Various parts of the city inviting
all unconditional Union men to attend. The
meeting as has been already stated iu the jour
nals of the city was held on the 20th of Sep
tember. The same men previously nomi
nated by the Union Club were re ■nominated
by this meeting without'one dissentiug voice.
The ticket consists ot the followiug names:
A. W. Stone, Dr. F. Y. Clark and L S. Ben
nett. The first is a representative mau who
has beeu practicing law in Georgia over fif
The other two are old citizens of Savaunah,
one a professional man and the other a me
chanic, aud all Union men. Thus it will
be seeu that this ticket is fairly and honestly
before the voters of Savannah. This is
the only ticket that has had sufficient cour
age, to put Union on its front—now can we
afford, even were we so inclined, to elect
any set of men on any other platform than
that of Union. It would have a very dam
aging effect upon the whole community in
more ways than one. We are now mostly
fleperdent on northern patronage and capi
at. Those at the North who are anxious to
eoinc here and spend their money in laud
and other property, are now waiting and
looking on to see it the Union feeling through
out the State is sufficiently strong to justify
their coming here to invest.
Tlius, then, this election to Savannah is a
very important one, and we sincerely hope
every man before he votes will carefully con
sider this matter, and have the interest and
good of Savannah and the Stale at large at
heart in casting his vote.
