Tire Absence of contest in the Election.
In another column we give t'.e result ol
the election of delegates to the Slate Conven
tion from the few coumies that have been
hoard from. In only one or two of thesc
counties was there more than one ticket run,
and the election was conducted in each with
perfect order and decorum. It is very evi
dent that the almost universal accepiauce by
our people of the dual military adjustment • 1
the great sectional questions which so lo g
and violently agitated, the country lias pre
cluded these questions from any bearing up. >n
the recent election. We r. iterate the con
viction we have before expressed, that ih*
question of union and secession or disunion,
did not enter into the canvass for delegates
to the State Convention. Men were noi
chosen for their past devotion or opposition
to the Confederate cause. Tue manifest de
sire of our people has been to secure the ser
vices of able and experienced gentlemen,
upon whose sound judgment, prudeuco and
integrity they might rely to carry out the
plan of reconstruction of the Union recom
mended by President Johnson, and which is
favored by the conservative men of the
North. We feel confident that the voters of
Georgia have not failed in their object, and
thst the Convention, shortly to assemble,
will prove to the nation by their action, lhat
they accept, in good faith, the terms for re
union in the great sisterhood of American
States, which have been proposed by the
President, and which must be approved and
religiously maintained by all who sincerely
desire the future peace, happiness ami pros
perity of the American people.
Savannah Institute fur Yuan - Ladles.
We invito the attention of our readers to
Mr. Lancaster’s advertisement, in our
columns, announcing the opening of the
above school at Armory Hall, on the 11th
inst. From onr information as to the plan of
instruction to be adopted, and the teachers
to be employed, we are confident that the
institution is destined to supply a want long
felt in this community, and thst parents in
Savannah will hereaftei be enabled to secure
for their daughters, at lost*, complete and
thorough instruction in all the branches of our
•accomplished education. Mr. Lincasterhas
been long and favorably known among us as
a zealous, faithful and competent teacher.—
The Ladies associated with him are of tin*
highest social position in Savannah, who
now cheerfully contribute to the education 1
their Southern sisters the brilliant intern.
and accomplishments which, in more pr t—
perous days, were only the graces and orua
inenls of privato social life. The the ry of
the school contemplates an extension of the
list of studies according to the requirements
of pupils; a system of c.ilistkeuic exercises is
also proposed. The object of the institution
is to afford a complete home education for
young ladies and we cordially recommend it
Richmond .County. —At the election in

the Stale Convention, receiving each the en
tire vote polled (52.)
Bullock County.— Mr. R. Mcßone re
ceived 159 votes; Mr Simeon Brewster, 174
and Gen. Peter Cone, 126 votes. We uuder
stand that Gun. Cone, who was ill and con
fined to hii room was not a candidate. We
believe Gen. C. is the senior living member
of the State Senate, having represented his
county in that body some thirty-five years.

President Johnson has introduced into the
White House the largest family circle that
ever occupied the Executive Mansion. His
family consists of his Wife, a son-in-law, two
daughters, and a number of grand-childreD.
'•'he son-in-law is Judge Patterson, recently
elected Senator from Tennessee. Mrs. P.,
who h to be the lady of the house, was edu

(Ooh Am nicin t’ocsix.—The theatrical
world, and perhaps a goodly portion of the
I rest of mankind in New York, ore just now
j considerably excited by a controversy be-
I tween Mi-s Laura Keene, the actress and
manageress, and Mr J. S. Clarke, res-ee of
the Winter Garden Theatre, in reference to
the right of property in Tom Taylor's caj i
lal Comedy of the above name Miss Keene
contends that the exclusive right to play Our
American Cousin, vests in herself, she hav
ing paid tbe author large sums of money for
the original M 5.3., while Mr. Clarke maintains
lhat her pretended claim lias been decided ;
against her after lull investigation of the
'acis, hy the United Stales Court lorthe East
ern Di-lrict ol Pennsylvania,that court having
and tided that no copyright vested in Mss
K eue, Tom Tayl a, or any one else. The
C -urt, however, ‘'suggested that as many
fit ciive intro uctians had been made by
ev lal .eon- in Mi s K cue's employment,
ahich hud b in adopted, she ought, as a
natter of e pdi\, to r it v nine c inpensa
i u," wili h co,i p sa io i, or a certain -urn
agreed Upon, ne had paid to Miss K ene, thus
cancelling her claim to auv exclusive right
6iie may have set up to a piece that is now,
being played in respectable theatres in vari
ous parts of the country. Thus stands the
affair, as disclosed in the correspondence in
the New York Herald, while the excitement
produced is no doubt gieatly increasing the
“drawing'’ power of "Our American Cousin
a New York.
The comedy when first produced in Eng
land and in this country produced a great
sensation in heatrical circles, and it certainly
hid* fair to hold its place on the stage. Like
most of the talented playwright’s production-,
it is tuim full of effective points and pleasing
situations, with enough ot literalary merit and
well and, fined, uaturat character, to reader it a
most admirable acting piece. It was pro
duct don our boards a few evenings since,
and though we on y had an opportunity of be
ing pr< sent during the performance of the last
als of the comedy,we saw enough to satisfy
u j that it was the most effective play that has
yet been introduced by the new company.—
Mr. Raymond, the versatile commedian,
shone to rare advantage in the serio-comic
part of Asa Treuchard, while the ladies, es
pecially Miss Gordon and Miss Cameron, ap
peared to great advantage and won favor
with tho audience in their respective j
characters. What the entire com
pany did so well on a first representation
they would do eyen better in a second per
formance, and we feel confident that a repeti- 1
tion of “Our American Cousin,” so well
adapted to the powers of our present excellent j
dramatic troupe, would be gratifying to the j
admirers if fine acting and sterling comedy. !

Notice to the Public.
IN the year 1846, tho writer embarked in the Drug
Business in the city of Philadelphia, and while thus
engaged, made bw ral expel intents in regard to the
n*o<t desirable mode of prepari. g Fluid Extracts. My
efiorts being snccessftil—th© articles being approved nnd
Uied bv tho Medical frailty—l was deßirous of placing
them before tho public, but hesitat cl for pome time
before concluding to resort to newspaper advertising,
knowing of the prejudices that existed in the minds of
many against using advertised Medicines or Nos-rums
but through the novice of friends and those who had
used them this objection was overcome.
After IS y are' xertions, commencing in a small wnv,
the popularity of ray articles Ims ixte ded to all parts
of the United States, and widely throughout Foreign
countries—and this in the face of ratuh opposition.
Every means has been resorted to by unprincipl and and . ul
cr.s since their merit and succ< ss have b»en known
such aa advertising larger bottles at less price. Censur ng
all other proparati ms, and even copying my advertise
ments—but lam happy to state that out ot the many
who have resorted to this, none have been successful.
in this notice is to make facts known to the public and
respectable dealers, believing, after so many years' ex
ertions, that the Druggists will disc uutenance such
proceedings, and that the reputation of my articles
may not be damaged by the use of Inferior or spurious
Knowing that many may read this article who are
unacquulnted with me, I append a few remaiks from
those of my native city, and whose names are known
in all parts of the world:
“Being personally acquainted with Mr. H. T. Helm
bold. it affords me pleasure in stating I have been
most favorably Impressed with his energy aud integri

“ When on a visit to the city of New York a few
days since, I was induced to call on our old friend and
townsman, Mr. 11. T. Helmbold. Druggist, 594 Broad
way, N. Y. His Store Is a Model—a perfect Gem--
the handsomest of any kind we have.ever had the
pleasure of viewing, and so extensive, being 34 leet
front, five stories in height, and over 200 feet deep.—-
it indeed affords ns much pleasure to know that he
has been so successful, and ft is ample evidence of ibe
merits ol' his articles —as in our whole business expe
rience we have not known of the success of any arti
cle* without Merit—advertising mcrelv bringing the
name before the people.”
[Boston Hera Id. J
“We do not like to advertise worthless wares, or
articles calculated to deceive our readers; and when
we see an advertiser like Mr. Helmbold, whom we
have known for years, gradually extend his advertising
from year to year until he becomes the largest adver
tiser in the United fetates, we are satisfied that the
statements in regard to his articles must be correct.’
The writer reluctantly inserts the above, and won id
not do so were he not a stronger to many; and con
cludes by satins: the name- o. his articles, and the
diseases for which they have been used by manv thou
