GEORGIA STATE CONVENTION
pHO C EE DIN G S I N Fm,
MiLLitnoKviLi.K, Georgia, >
Wednesday, Oct.'2s, 1865. ) .
The hour of 1-2 o’clock, meridian, having
come, according to the proclamation of His
Excellency, James Johnson, Provisional Gov
ernor of Georgia, the delegates elect assem
bled in the hall of the House of Representa
tives. The Speaker’s chair was occupied by
Judge Iverson L. Harris and his Excellency
Governor Johnson : The House will come
to order. As Provisional Governor ot the
State of Georgia, I did heretolore, by pro
clamation, order and direct, that an election
for delegates lor a convention of the people
of the State of Georgia, should be held on
the first Wednesday of the present month.
By virtue ot the same authority, I did furth
er order and direct that the delegates thus
elected should thereafter assemble at 12
o’clock, meridian, in the city of Milledgeville
on the fourth Wednesday of this month.—
That day and that hyur having now arrived,
I shall, gentlemen, with your assistance,
proceed W organize this body for delihera
tion, and for the dispateh of such business as
may cornu before it. The first business in
order will be the call of counties, and the
members elect prescut will please respond
by giving their names to the Secretary. Thu
Secretary will now proceed to call the coun
Mr. li. H. Briscoe, the Governor's private
Secretary, proceeded with a call ofthecoun
ties, and the delegates elect responded.
The Secretary announced that a quorum
Governor Johnson : Gentlemeri, I am in
strueted to administer to you, before enter
ing upon the discharge of your duties, an
oath —the amnesty oath, which has already
been taken by you. The Honorable Iverson
1. Harris, judge of the Ocmulgee circuit,
will administer the oath. The Secretary will
r til tiie list and members will come forward
and take upon themselves tbe obligation.
Judge Harris then administered the amnes
ty oath to the members present, in bodies of
eight, as follows ;
“You, aud each of you do solemnly swear,
i* the presence of Almighty God, that you
will henceforth faithfully support, protect
aud defend the Constitution of the United
States, aud the uuion ot the States thercuu
der ; and that you will, in like manner, abide
by and faithfully support all laws and pro
clamations which have been made during
tbe existing rebellion, with reference: to the
emancipation of slaves : So help you God !”
Governor Johnson : The next business in
order, gentlemen, will lie the selection of a
permanent President of tbe Gouveutiou. The
election will be by ballot, and a majority of
the whole number of . ballots will be neces
sary to a choice.
Mr. Jeukins : I beg to nominate, for the
office of President of the Convention, Hon.
Herschcll V- Johnson, of the county of Jet
Mr. Harris, of Worth : I nominate Hon.
Charles J. Jenkins, of Richmond county, tor
the same position.
The latter nomination was withdrawn.
Mr. Kenan :—I move that Hon. Iferschell
V. Johnson be elected President of this Con
vention by acclamation.
Gov. Johnson: Gentlemen will please re
member that it has been announced by the
chair, that the election will be by ballot,
and that a majority ot the ballots will be
necessary to a'elioicc; but if there is no ob
jection, the election Can take place by ac
Mr. Cbappel: 1 much prefer that the elec
tion should be by ballot, and l trust the
Convention will so decide. 1 think it duo to
the body that a Convention assembled to
deliberate upon the most important matters
that could come before any body, should
have all its proceedings-characterized by the
utmost solemnity. It is familiar to this
Convention that elections by acclamation
usually take place in party conventions, or
in county meetings, but this is a point of
solemnity far above such bodies, aud I pre
fer that the election should take 1 place in
the manner the Governor has designated.
Governor Johnson : pops the gentleman
Mr. Chappell : I do object.
Governor Johnson: Objection being rais
ed, the election will proceed by ballot.
Mr. Kenan:—l move that we elect viv js
race. That is the usual way in which elec
lions have been made by the Georgia Legis
Governor Johnson put tbe question, and
the motiou prevailed.
The Secretary then called the list of mem
bers, and the vote was announced as fol
lows : Herschell V. Johnson. 246; Charles
J. Jenkins, 27.
Goy. Johnson: The Hon. H. V. Johnson
having received a majority of the whole Vote
cast, he is hereby declared elected Presi
dent ot tbe Convention.
Mr. Kenan: I move that without any fur
ther ceremony the Hon. H. Y Johnson Ire
requested to take his seat as President pi
the Convention. ♦ 1
The motion prevailed, when Mr. Johnson
was welcomed to his seat by Gov. JobuSou,
amid the applause of the body.
The President: Gentlemen ot tho Con
vention—Please accept my grateful acknowl
edgements for this evidence ofyour kindness
aud confidence. I regret that 1 cannot
promise any great eflieleucy us your presid

Governor Johnson and Judge J. L. Harris
The Convention then proceeded to the
election of a Secretary. Messrs. Sutiold,
Peeples, Waddell, Walker and Harrison,
were placed iu nomination. On the first bal
lot the result was as follows: Saffold, 60 :
Walker, 14; Waddell, 102; Peeples, 47;
Harrison, 5; Williams, 4.
There being no choice by a majority vote,
the Convention then proceeded to a secoud
ballot with the following result: Waddell,
154; Peeples, 38; Saffold, 62.
Mr. James D. Waddell, of Polk epunty,
having received a majority of all the votes
cast, was declared elected, and appeared and
was qualified by tlio administration of an
oath similar to that administered to the
delegates, aud the customary oath of office.

committee of IC, ouc from each judicial dis

Tbe resolution was adopted.
Mr. Ford : I move that a committee of
three be appointed by tbe President, to wait
ou bis Excellency, tbe Governor, and inform
him that the Convention is organised aud
ready to receive any communication he may
desire to make.
The motion was carried.
Messrs Floyd, Hunsell and Chappell were
appointed that committee.
Mr. Mollard : I move that a committee
of three he appointed by the chair to make
arrangements lor opening the daily sessions
of the body with prayer.
The motion was carried.
Messrs. Mallard Cabauiss and Cole were
appointed that committee.
The committee appointed to wait on his
Excellency, reported that they had perform
ed that duty, and that the Governor would
submit a communication in writing imme
diately. The Governor sent in the following
Genu-emes of tub Convention :
The circumstances under which you have
assembled, make it proper in my judgmout,
that you should have set before you a sum
mary of the financial condition of the State,
that you may be better prepared to give ap
propriate directions to Executive officers
touching the discharge of important duties
m cessary to be performed before the Legis
lature will assemble. Upon entering on the
duties of my office I ascertained from a
source deemed reliable, that the cotton
which had been previously purchased by
the State had either been captured or con
sumued by fire ; and that all of the assets
the State held abroad, had been drawn
against to tbe full extent of tbeir value.
The Western tfc Atlantic Railroad yielded
us uo income, and tbe stock belonging to
the State iu Banks and other Railroads were
entirely unavailable. Our charitable Insti
tutions, the Academy for the blind at the
city of Macon, aud the Lunatic Asylum at
this place, were without funds and are now
compelled to resort to such credit as they
obtain to procure supplies necessary for the
maiutenauce of their unfortuuate inmates.
The Penitentiary with its shops and machine
ry, lias been nearly destroyed—to such an
exteut, as to render it wholly inadequate to
accomplish the purpose designed—and near
ly all the convicts have either escaped or
It will be necessary therefore to make
some provisions to carry into effect the judge
ment of the courts against certain criminals
for offences committed in violation of exist
ing laws, or which may be committed, until
new laws shall be made prescribing new
penalties and other modes of inflicting
punishment for crime.
During the progress of the war the Wes
tern & Atlantic Railroad was alternately
destroyed aud rebuilt by the contending
armies, until by the operation of last spring
it Anally fell into the possession of the mili
tary authorities of the United States. By
them it was temporarily repaired and put in
running order, and by them retained until
about the 25th of last month, when it was
turned over to the Slate upon certain terms
and conditions proposed by tlie United
States. Most of the deposits on the road, and
the workshops on it, are to be repaired or
rebuilt ; many cross ties to be furnished and
much ot the iron to be reiaid. The bridges
ov«r the streams were found to be frail aud
liable to he swept off by the first heavy
Such being the case, the superintendent
and directors did not hesitate, with my ap
proval, to enter into contract for the im
mediate construction of permanent and sub
stantial bridges. They are fourteen in num
ber, and'by the terms of the contracts are to
he completed by the 15th of December next.
The rolling stock on the road being insuffi
cient, the superintendent and directors
purchased of the United States nine engines
and about ope hundred cars. This outlay
cannot be met by the proceeds of the road,
but will require, it is estimated, more than a
hair million of dollars.
I have caused some repairs to be pnt upon
the State House and the Executive Mansion.
These will require turther appropriations to
replenish and put them in proper order.—,
Having no available assets with which to
pay the mileage of the members of the con
vention or tbeir per diem, I borrowed, on
tbe faith of the State, from citizens of Au
gusta, about the sum of fifty thousand dol
lars, to lie used by the convention tor that
purpose. Special contracts have been made
with the citizens lending the money, to
which contracts I invite your attention and
respectfully ask that they be approved, and
that provisions ,be made to meet them
Since our last election for members to the
Congress of the United States, anew appoi -
tionmsnt of Keprescntatives has heun made
under the Census Returns of 18C0; and by
that apportionment the numlicr allotted to
till: State of Georgia is reduced to seven. It
being desirable that*Representatives should
be elected at as early a day us practicable, it
will be proper that the Convention shall by
resolution or otherwise, divide the State into
the requisite number of Districts, and order
that the election for members to Congress
be held on the same day as that on which
the Governor mid members of the General
Assembly may be directed to bo bolden.
The changes wbicli the war aud its results
have made in our property, population ami

strated that the judges should bc’indepen

ami the wholesome adminislration of law,
require that the Governor be deprived of the
appointment of all judicial functionaries.—
The administration of Justice will, under the
new condition of society, require that the or
ganic law be so made, as to allow the Legis
lature to establish interior tribunals iu each
county with jurisdiction over certain classes
of civil and criminal causes. The sessions
of such courts should be frequent, so as to
dispatch busiuess without delay, and should
be held subject to legislation from time to
time, as the public exigencies might re
Iu this connection 1 cannot foi hear earnestly
recommending to your deliberate considera
tion, the propriety ot ordaining that the Su
preme Court shall hold its sessions at one
place, and that oue place shall be the seat of
Government for tbe State. The advantages
resulting from it will be many and great. It
will better secure the convenience of suitors,
aud approximate more nearly iu distrib

The public debt of the State ,'as reported
by the Comptroller amounts to about §20,-
813,525. Os this sum §2,667,750, were con
tracted prior to the commencement of the
war, the balance about §18,135,775 during
its existence. On tbe amount iucurred pre
vious to hostilities there is now due and un
paid, about the sum of §234,000. The lia
bilities incurred before the war is in every
sense a debt, and the State is bound by
every consideration of good faith and public
morality so to regard it, and to make pro
vision for the prompt and faithful discharge
ot such liability. No reasouable doubt can
be entertaiued that such will be her pleasure
and tier action. But the debt created during
tbe war, stands ou a very different basis. Ft
is of no legal or moral obligation because it
was created to aid iu the prosecution of a
war of rebellion against the United States.
The purpose sought to bo accomplished was
unconstitutional and all who participated iu
anywise in the effort to sever the country,
where violators of law and can therefore set
up uo claim cither legal or equitable for
money advanced or for services reudered.
Furthermore these contracts, trom which a
liability is said to result were made with
Georgia iu revolt—with Georgia as a mem
ber of the Confederate States.
Government, The Government to which
she then belonged, has been overthrown and
with its overthrow nil Confederate debts
became extinct. Georgia as a component pait

curred, have in like manner been extinguish

ODe of tbe States of the Federal Union, and
in her ieturn to reconciliation?nor allegiance
to the Government requires that the act of
secession be cancelled, and all other acts
done and performed in aid of the rebellion
be declared void and of none effect. The
ultimate redemption ot the currency, both
State ami Confederate, was made depen
dent in fact, aud in terms upon the result of
the fatal struggle. No oue expected pay
ment if finally defeated iu our efforts to st
cure independence, aud therefore no plight
ed faith is violated by a refusal on the part
of Georgia to assume to pay an iudebledness
dependent ou the issue. The currency aud
the cause flourished together while in life,
aud now that the cause has uo longer a
being, the currency that sustained it may
well Ije interred in the same grave.
To call a refusal ou the part of the State
to acknowledge or pay these extinct de
mands, repudiation is but a perversion of the
use of language, aud presents an appearance
of an attempt to sustain and uphold a des
perate cause by a resort to odious words aud
opprobious epithets. Our burdens are al

among us and will embarrass us in a variety
of ways for years to come.
To transfer this great question to the Legi -
lature will be considered as a quasi endorse
ment of its justice. The Legislature will
have its own peculiar burdens to bear, and
will be pressed with business beyond that ot
any one that has assembled in our day. It
will be charged with framing and passing
tax laws, police laws, penal laws, laws rela
ting to contracts, and to all the manifold re
lations of life- Such subjects will be suffi
cient to consume the time and tho talents of
the most able and industrious of men, and
the public welfare will demand that, to these
subjects, tbe members of tbe Legislature
shall give their earnest, best and undivided
efforts. Let not that body, when in session,
be liesieged, from <ity to day, by claimants
and their agents and attorneys, urging tbe
assumption, in whole or part, of its uncon
stitutional demands. Let the hope of re
ward iu such efforts be entirely cutoff’; let
this oveiflowing fountain of corruption be
now and forever dried up ; and let the record
of your action ou this subject discourage, in
tbe luture, all premature efforts to overthrow
long and well established governments. In
a word, ordain solemnly and deliberately,
that no Legislature uow or hereafter, shall,
directly or iudirectiy, in whole or in part,
assume to pay, in any manner, these de
mands, unconstitutional in their creation,
and many of them without eveu the counte
nance ot equity to support them.
The events of this year will constitute an
era in history. Slavery has been abolished
iu these States. Georgia, iu Convention, is
called upon to put ou record an aeknowl
edgmept of the accomplished tact, to give
assurance to mankind that iuvoluntary ser
vitude shall not be hereafter, in any form, or
by virtue of any device, exist within ber bor
ders ; to enjoiu on succeeding legislatures
that they shall guard by law the commuuity
from the evils of sudden emancipation ; shall
secure those emergiug trom boudage iu tbe
enjoyment of tbeir legal rights; and shall
protect the bumble, the iguorapt and the
weak from aggression. Suoli*are some of the
unforeseen and wonderful results of the war.
In passing through this revolution our chas
tisements have been severe, and our calami
ties have been heavy; but we should do
well to remember, that this great change is j
of Him, who does all things wisely, and “ae- '
cording to the counsels ot His will.”
