Tilt 1 Protectioni£t« Moving*
Meetings are being held in various parts ot
the country by those classes who wish to be
favored in their interests by legislative pro
tection previous to the meeting of Con
gress. The wool growers had a large meet
ing recently in Philadelphia. Several lead
, ing individuals took part in the proceedings.
Among those who addressed the meeting in
favor of Protection doctrines was Mr. Henry
O. Carey of that place, who has written
largely on the science which he lias culti
vated successfully, and by which lie has
a European reputation In his
earlier works Mr. Carey was an advocate of
free trade principles. Some of the reason
ings and facts offered by him in those works
in favor of free trade were irrefragable, and
arc beyond disputation. In bis address to
the meeting aforesaid, he came forth as the
vainest advocate of Protection, and, ot
course, as the adversary of Free trade. Mr.
Carey could not have expected that his
present opinions would not be contrasted
with those he published under the high
authority of his name some years since.
In hi? speech at the gathering in Phila
delphia he uttered the U9uul common places

Col. Anderson and Mr. Cohen are maile
the recipients of your peculiar benevolence
—two gentlemen, who, although, always
ready to greet the poor aud honest min as
friend, would not permit you, sir, to cross
their threshold ; uot even to occupy a place
at the table of their colored menials, which
position, I am giyen to understand, you once
chose to take in the household of a gentle
man iu this city, iu preference to the society
of the white family. However, ol that I
have nothing to complain : “chucun a son
gout" is a well known French proverb, and
‘‘birds ol f :v feather flock together," a good old
English cue. 1 have no doubt that Col. Au
dersou is glad to hear that you regard him as
“a man of more than ordinary ability," and
that lie is immensely relieved to know that
“aside from his political views,”.you have no
fault to find with him.
But it is upon Mr. Cohen that you pour
out the vials of your disappointment ad In fini
tum. He is a Jew, a native of South Carolina
and a defaulter. As lo ihe first charge, I sus
pect that .Mr. Cohen will plead guilty to the
impeachment; but 1 really doubt if lie will
feel very much annoyed at being charged as
being one-of a people who have given laws
to the world, and whose nationality and
faith the blessed Savior of mankind did not
hesitate to adhere to and acknowledge. But
I fear that what was approved of by the
Savior, will uot accord with yonr notions of
right. At any rate, Mr. Cohen has reason
to thank the Being he worships that his ic
ligion, whatever it may be, is not contamina
ted by the adherence or prosely tlsm of your
self. I suspect, too, that Mr. Cobe.t will
comers that he wat iroru in South Carolina.
But, really, whatever may be the stigma at
tached to being burn on ihe soil of South
I Carolina amid the periietts ot ihe O il Brew
ery, the people of Georgia do not regmlit
us very dishotjotabk. They are,'perhaps, in
a deplorable state of ignorance, and you and
| snclr as you will have to enlighten them At
■ any rate, Mr. Cohen bar lived in Savannah
! since- before you blossomed into existence,
and when he canto here he cams with the
reputation of a high toned and houorable
geaffeman, which he has sustained ever
serf. How did you come hote? Ihaveen-
qoned. Noone will acknowledge you to have
been an officer of the army, and for the sake
ol the respectability of the army, I um
thankful. Please let us know whether you
were a teamster, “bummer," or penny-a-li
ner. Tue last charge is that Mr. Cohen is a de
limiter to thel!. fi. Government for SIO,OOO. If
Ibis be true, it is opposed to the w hole course !
jol his past life, and we have hitherto
i been in blissful ignorance of his character !
| I v< ill not insult Mr. Coheu by enquiring if the
i ( ‘oa:ge he true, but in the absence of all evi
dence save your assertion, 1 braud the charge
a lie aud its publisher a base calumuialor.
Towards Mr. Lloyd you ob.-erve a tone of
limited compliment; but as to whether he
wou and not be “more houored in the breach
than in the observance" at your hands,l have
my doubts. At any rate, if you expect any

with the defeated Caui lid a tea at their having
as their champion and expeutnt. I re
mit the painful fact of having beard vou
geutlally denominated yesterday ou the
i street, “a dirty blackguard." I reg-et more
than all that I have been obliged to soil my
hands with yon. I would have yon recollect
j one tiling, however: that, in this part of the
world, we recogniz : a gentleman in blue as
gladly a? we do one in grey ; and we hnve
no more respect for a blackguard in blue than
we have for a blackguard in grey. As you
: hive not a shadow of chance of acquiring
j ihe respect due to a gentleman, either in blue
■ or gti v. pray let me advise you to escape
1 the contempt due the nondescript, who entn-
I ijiues the characteristics of the blue and grey
blackguard fused together.
Pray, let me hear from you in y our issue
' of to-morrow in answer to this. Y’our black
guardism towards tnc in the present dearth
!of business will amuse me. Let me beg of
you, too, to take a few lessons iu geutieman-
I iy demeanor from yonr colored friends who
: have been brought up in Southern families;
! the contact will improve you—although I
1 would not advise you to aspire to any mat
j rimonial views with their daughters. You
; would probably meet with a disappointment
I as grievous as your late election ambition.
1 will state, in conclusion, that if you are
j anxious to learn the name of the friend who
j addresses you, you have but to biud yourself
j with decent security to the obligations ustlal
i under such circumstances, nnd you ran ob

THE THREE-FIFTHS KI LE.
There is Rn obvious incongruity between
the retention of the three-fifths rule in the
Congressional representation of the slaves
and the abolition of slavery. The abolition
of slavery would scent to involve full repre
sentation of the slaves. No othe conclusion
that is logical can be formed - Still as it is a
part of the Constitution the rule cannot be
dispensed with by the Southern States. The
effect is that they will not be entitled, f.3 long
ns it continues, to that extent of representa
tion to which they are entitled. South Ca
rolina, for example, would be entitled to six
representatives it her slaves were represent
ed in the popular brand; of the National
Legislature. According to the census of
1360, South Carolina will not be entitled to
more than four representatives until the cen
sus of 1870 is taken, and in the same relative
jproportion as regards the rest of the South
i rn States.
The remedy for tiffs is obvious. AA'liih:
the Constitution is being amend and by the
ab ilition ji.f shivery, it ought to be further
amended' by abolishing tin! three-fiilhs tnle
as no louger applicable, and to make that
instrument consistent with itself.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Washington

Washington, Oct. 1.
The President's reception yesterday
was well attended, but ihe irhong of
pardon steke's lias considerably diminish
ed, caused by their knowledge of the
fact that Jiui more uctv applications tor
pardon would be cobs dieted until those al
ready passed upon by the Attorney General
have been acted on by the President. No
pardons were announced yesterday, but the
stamping process was in active operation,
and it is expected a large number w ill be
published on Monday. Among the visitors

Os Kentucky, who lmd a long interview with
the president, it is supposed in regard to af
fairs in that State, before the doors were
opened to the mass of visitors. Gov. Bram
lette, of Kentucky, was hero early lu the
week, and had several interviews with the
President. The arrival of Gen. Palmer has
given rise to the rumor that some disagree
ment, exists in Kentucky between the civil
and military authorities in regard to the ad
ministration of affairs in that State, and ihe
Governor applied for Presidential interfer
ence to the extent of removing Gen. Palmer
It is also hinted that Gen. Palmer was or
dered here to explain his official acts. Noth
ing has yet publicly transpired as to the true
merits of the case, but further developments
are expected in a few days. The well-known
repugnance of the President to military Gov
ernment where power can salely be entrusted
to the civil Authority, justifies the belief that
the wishes of Cov. Bramletle may prevail in
clothing the civil authorities iu that State
with luil powers.
THE PRESIDENT LIBERAL WITH lIIS PAP.DOXS.
A special despatch to the Philadelphia
Ledger of Oct. 2d, says-
Washington, Oct. I.—l wrote you, a week
to-day, that the President was becoming
more “careless" iu the matter ot pardons, and
ample confirmation of that remark is already
at hand. Not only is the President relieved
of the duty of signing with his own hands
the pardons granted, but he has given direc
tions that the indiscriminate rush of appli
cates shall be stayed, tbe Executive reserving
to liimseif to decide who shall be admitted.
It looks now as if nine hundred and niae
ty-ninc applicants out of a thousand would
receive the coveted pardon without troubling
themsoives any further than send their pa
pers. duly endorsed by the State Executive,
to the office of the .Attorney General. A cer
tain number of names will then bo run

made, the exceptions, if any, being those
against whom there ate special aud grave
reasons for withholding the pardon sought
CUR TIMBER MARKET.
Previous to the war Savannah had growu
lo be one of tiie most considerable timber
maikets in the country, aud the export of
yellow pine ranging timber, live oik timber
for ship-building, staves aud naval stores,
next to cotton and rice comprised the tno-t
important branch of our domestic commerce.
During th s war the blockade of our port
suspended the timber business, aud for
the past four years uot only have the rafts that
formerly eucumbered tbe banks of tbe Ogee
chee canal and the river above the city dis
appeared, but the loading of stiips for for
relgn markets in our port and at the mouths
of the Altamaka and St. .Marys has ceased.
We are please to observe that with the
other indications of returning prosperity the
lumber business, for which our section po
aesses such inexhaustible resources, is being
resumed, aud the gentlemen of enterprise
and energy have turned their attention to tile
re-opening of this important trade. Messrs.
Sims & Wheaton, the latter an experienced
timber merchant, have opened a house here
for the transaction of a general agency in tiie
receiving, sale and shipment of lumber, and

Tiie Brothers began by taking their seats
in the mysterious cupboard, which was ex
amined by Count Clnny and M. Ilenti De
Penc, after which M. Duchemin, an engineer,
firmly tied the Brothers with the rope.' The
doors of the cupboard were then closed, the
gas was extinguished, nnd the spectators
waited patiently for the spiritual manifesta
tions. Nothing, however, appeared, and the
public began to hiss. At lengtli tbe doors
opened, and the Brothers were discovered
unbound, with the rope at their feet. M.
Duchemin upon this took up the rope to ex
amine it, and declared il was not the one he
had used. This produced a perfect tumult
among the spectators, which was increased
by the manager announcing that the Brothers
would uow proceed to tie themselves up.—
The stage was immediately invaded by the
public ; the Brothers prudently disappeared,
and the performance terminated by tue ap
pearance of soma senftnts de. vU/e, who clear

Robin exposed all tbe tricks ot the Brothers

A Court of .Jurisdiction between Freed
men and their Employers.— Major General
O. O. Howard, Commissioner of Freedmen,
lias authorized the establishment, of a sort of
court of examination into all difficulties aris

bureau, with two citizens—one to be selected
by the white citizens and the other by the
freedmen—are «o constitute this court, the
jurisdiction of which is limited to the case
indicated above. In furtherance of ibis
plan, General Howard has been making tbe
tour of Virginia, and on the 28th instant had
an interesting interview with the officials of
Portsmouth and Norfclk.
An Air Line Railroad from New York lo
Boston is now agitated. It claims to shorten
the route 2.7 miles nnd one hour's travel.
The Grand Trunk railway favors the enter
prise, for it chii send freight and passengers
through from Montreal to New York with
only a ehan'ge of cars at Pm‘.land. There is
a great deal of opposition to the proposed
road from the railroad companies now es

A Terrific SroitM in Texas —Galveston
was visited by the most terrific storm ever
witnessed on tiie 13th inst. Several houses
were blown down and others moved from

were blown down in various parts of tbe
place, aud tbe fragments of one fell upon its
tenants, mortally wounding one person and
bruising several others.
Other accounts of tiie storm from different
portions of the State are fearful.

The remeuy, and the only remedy for this condition
of affairs consists in tbe immigration of a hardy and

those who cannot be compelled to work rnd whose
dispositions do not ineline them to greater labor thsn
is actually necessary to sn|iport life.
Tosucu immigrants, no Stale offers greater induce

The area of the State contains upwards of thirty
miiUuns ot acres, o which not more than onc-tbiid
ba* been cultivated, and tne virgin forest of the wild
lands afford an inexhaustible supply of lumber which
formed a heavy item of the exports of '-corgia prior
to onr late difficulties. These lands, w hich m»y he
bought at comparatively low rates, will give to the
new settler a homeste id oil which he may erect his
root tree and settle for llle un luhabitunt aiid in times

In view ol the foregoing facta the undersigned pro
pose to organise s Compauy to he called the ' Georgia
Land u.id Emigration Company," the principle office
to be located in Savannah, wiih the Intention of ap
plying for a charter at the next session of the Legisla
ture ; the capital of aaid Company to be five hundred
rhonsand dollars, in twenty thousand of twenty-five
dollars each; said Company to be organized by the
choice of a President nnd Directors when all the
shares shall have been subscribed.
'The object of the Company ts to Induce and afford
aid to the Immigration Into the State of Georgia of
honest, sober nnd reliable persons with their families
to become purchasers of and settlers ou Duds not now
in use, or to Ik- laborc.s on farms or plantations on
which the treedmen reinse to work, or to follow ibclr
trades, or become house servants.
The advantages to be derived as this present junc
ture by the influx of such a class of population, are
manliest. To the lame landholder it offers tbe pros
pect of selling his land or farming it out on advanta
geous terms. To the Planter and Fanner it will sup
ply that labor, in the absence of which, the owner
ship of tiie soil is a burthen, and to all persons in
those classes of life whoso business requires or whose
position permits the ure of the labor ot otbera it af
fords the opportunity of obtaining sneb labor of
a reasonable rate, and of a relD blc character. 3"
also to tiie State will great benefit accrue: manv of
the Immigrants may biing wealth will) them, all will
bring ekm or Industry, which Is the souice of wealth,
I.nd this infusion of ne v life will, we trust, In progress
of lime, restore Georgia to her original state of pros
The Company we believe—will be, not only self-sus
taining, but a source of profit to the stockholders —
The lees paid by those emigrants who can afford it,
for directions as to their eeulement: the
paid by the owners of lands for the sale, or leasing ol
their Duds to Ihe Immigrants, and by persons to
whom laborers are furnished, the profits to be derived
irom a.savings Institution to take care of the fundfl
and profits of the emigrants, which it is proposed to
connect with the Company will, we expect, enable
the Company to declare such dividends as will make
it remunerative to thorn; who subscribe simply as *"
investment. But independently of pecuniary con
sideration, as citizens of the State of Georgia who
have an interest in its future welinre, we ask your as
sistance in this matter, In oar opinion of vital impor
tance. We may not leave the land of onr birth, let
ns make it once more a land of promise.
