VERBATIM REPORT OP THE 'AD
OTHER PROCEEDINGS OF THE CON
[From our Special Correspondents.]
MtLtEDGBVILfcE, Oct. 20.
The Convention met puisuant to adjourn
ment, at 9 1-2 o'clock, and was opened with
prayer by Rev. Dr. Crawford, of Greene
After the reading of the journal, delegates
from several counties, just arrived, came
forward and took the amnesty oath.
Mr. Kenan, of Baldwin, introduced an
ordinance authorizing the Provisional Gov
ernor to negotiate a loan sufficient to pay
what may be duo on the civil list for the
years lS6i>-<>, and to defray the expenses of
the Slate Government, until the revenues of
the Stale will relieve the Executive from that
necessity' ot resorting to temporary loans.
The Committee of Sixteen, authorized by
a resolution of yesterday, to prepare business
lor the Convention, was anuouuced by the
Hon. Chas. J. Jenkins, Chairman, asked
leave of absence from the floor for the com
mittee, to enter on their labors. Leave was
Georgia State Cotton.
Col. Chas. 11. Hopkins, of Pierce County,
offered a resolution calliug for a statement
of the amount of cotton held liy the State,
what proportion was captured and what
burned; also, ol the assets of the State abroad,
and to whose credit they were held. Passed.
Gen. Hansel I, of Cobb, Cos., offered a reso
lution that the rules of the Convention of
1861 be adopted by the convention, so far as
Pardon of Political Prisoners.
Col. E- C. Anderson, of Chatham county,
offered a resolution that a Committee of five
be appointed to memorialize the President
ot the-United States, asking the pardon of
Jefferson Davis, A. H. Stephens, Gen. Mer
cer, James Seddon, G. A. Trenbolm, and
other distinguished gentlemen Confined at
An amendment was offered and accepted
to iuelude all Confederate political prisoners.
Mr. Hill of Morgan, opposed the resolu
tion, moving its indefinite postponement.
The Convention has been called together
for a higher purpose than that of instructing
the President ot the U. S. as to what is his
duty. I have heard it suggested since I have
been here, that the Convention should take
upon itself the duty of nominating some citi
zen of Georgia for Governor of this State. I
have advised agniDst that course, for, as I
have said we were called for a higher and
nobler purpose. I hold, sir, that it is not our
business to instruct Andrew Johnson, the
President of the U. S. in regard to his duty.
He understands well the situation—better
than the Convention can. He is master of
the situation, and anything the Convention
can say on this subject, would be regarded
by him as an interterence with his appro
priate duties. We have been greatly indebted
to Andrew Johnson for what he has done,
and 1 hope that we shall be more indebted
to him in the future. Let us not embarrass
him in his duties. Let us leave the question
with him to decide as he may tliink proper.
I hope that the resolution will not bd
Col. E C. Anderson, of Savannah, who
moved the resolution said :
Mr. President:—l simply wish to say that
1 did not offer the resolution in a spirit of
dictation to the President, but as a mere act
of mercy to the unfortunate gentlemen who
are now confined in prison. All of us here,
stand to-day as pardoned, and we are but
asking for these gentlemen the same clemen
cy that has been extended to us. Some of
them are citizens of Georgia, and it is natur
al that we should feel a deep sympathy for
them. Mr. Stephens, it'is true, is at liberty ;
hut he has not been pardoned, but only re
leased on his parole.
Col. Ciias. H. Hopkins, of Pierce County,
Assessor of Internal Revenue for the Ist.
Congressional District, said :
I do hope, Mr. President, that the Reso
lution will not pass. The. President knows
that every man who has a Southern heart
leels lor the unfortunate persons whose
pardon has been asked lor in this resolu
tion. But lie clearly understands his duty,
and I think that such a resolution
would have a tendency to retard than pro
mote the objects Ronght to be accomplished.
He knows what his business is, and I think
we should let him alone. He is doing as
much for the Souih as he possibly can ; and
unless we hinder him by our interference, I
think he will do a great deal more. He said
to the So. Ca. delegation that he could not
pardon everybody at once ; and I have no
doubt that, if Jeff Davis can be pardoned,he
will be by President Johnson in the course
ot three months. The Departments of the
Government are divided into three distinct
parts—the Executive, the Legislative and
the Judiciary—but in shaping our action wo
should remember that there Is a fourth.—the
Military, which is at present higher tbau all
and we must avoid coming in conflict
with any of tpese branches. We should as
soon instruct the Judge upon the bench as
to the decision he should make as the Presi
dent in the exercise oi his appropriate duties
Let us not embarrass the President in his
position; let us not attempt to gain too
much ; let us not rescue Jeff Davis from the
penalties of bis crime, if be .bss beeu guilty
of oat. Let him come out before the
world as innocent, if he be innocent; if hC
Is ioDOCent lie will not desire to lie screened i
from a trial; but if he be guilty, let hiiu
suffer tile consequences of his crime. Whilet !
I am opposed to doing anything in our offi- ;
trial capacity, I am willing as an individual 1
to sign a petition for the release of Gen. Mer- I
cer, for he only occupied a subordinate pnsi- I
tion. lam also willing to sign one for the
release of Mr. Stephens, because in my' opin
ion, he is iuuocent of the charge of treason.
He warned the country of the consequences
of secession, ouly went out when his State
had seceded. But I would not sign a peti
tion for the release of Jeff. Davis. We can
not control Andiew Johnson. He is another
Andrew Jackson and has manifested his iron
will on many' occasions. He refused to par
don a woman who had been condemned to
death for complicity in the assassination of
President Lincoln, because she had been con
victed, by the laws, ot a foul conspiracy. He
had no disposition to arrest the verdict which
consigned her to death, notwithstanding
there seemed to be some extenualiug cir
cumstances in the cage; and unless,there be
some very extenuating circumstances
I would not sign a petition for pardon. Mr.
Davis was the chosen chief of the Confed
erate States, and I feel certain that he would
prefer to be tried before the courts of his
country, in order that his innocence might
be established befdre the world, aud if he
were guilty, lam satisfied that he would
meet his late as becomes a man in bis high
position. We were told before the secession
that there would be no war, no blockade, no
blood, aud now let Mr. Davis stand by the
consequences. I will do nothing to his dis
honor, nothing to injure biS reputation, hut
1 will never sign such a petition while I
have the power to say “No ! no !”
Mr. Jas. T. Matthews, of Oglethorpe,
couuty, who was crippled in the Confederate
service, said :
I respectfully urge upon this Convention
that there is uo.issue ot principle made in
the resolution. The issue made is one of
sympathy for our unfortunate countrymen,
nothing more, nothing less. The past, with
al! its griels, its calamities, its sorrows, is
not iu debate. It can never be raised in the
first or second resurrection. It is gone for
ever. The gentlemen whose pardon is sought
at the hand ot the Chief Executive, are no
louger representative men—they are poor,
unfortunate prisoners. They have been
guilty of no higher offence, gentlemeu, than
we have been. When the late Confederacy
was struggling lor life Mr. Davis represent
ed Southern independence; but that gov
ernment has goue down aud its representa
tives have gone with it. Therefore there is
no principle involved. When the contest was
going on we sought to advance what we
supposed to be right (Applause.) But
whilst I have returned to allegiance to the
Government, I cannot forget the unfortunate
persons who languish now in Northern pris
ons, far from home and family and friends.
(Applause.) Other States have petitioned
their pardon, and why should not Georgia
do the same? Gentlemen say that we will
embarrass the President in his action. How
can it be supposed win n we lave ail here
taken an oath that we will support the Con
stitution of the U. S. and the Uniou thereun
der. Have we not been pardoned ourselves,
and have we not the right to petition tor the
pardon of others—a right guaranteed to Us by
the Constitution. (Applause) So far from em
barrassing the President, we should simply
be endorsing the conrse he lias so tar pur
sued towards us. He has shown himself to
bo in favor of mercy and pardon, and no
single word has escaped his lips or the lips
of any northern men, nor has it been iudi
cated by the northern press that the Presi
dent thirsts for the blood of any man engaged
iu this Confederacy. (Applause.) We have,
iu a struggle of four years, eudeavored to
maintain what we thought was the right, and
illustrated Southern valor on rnauy a haid
tought field, aud now when the struggle has
been given up, we have illustrated Southern
manhood by returning in good faith to the
Union of our fathers—to the government
against which we have warred. I must say
that I see nothing out of taste in the resolu
tion, and nothing improper. [Loud applause
ou the floor and iu the gallery.]
Mr. Hill of Morgan, County said :
Mr. President —1 wish to say that it is not
my fault that this debate has taken so wide a
range. I did not think it was .expedient for
this body to entertain a subject of compara
tively minor importance. The object tor
which this Convention has been called is to
restore the broken relations of- Georgia with
the general government; that is the great
primary object. But it seems to suit the
taste »t other gentlemen—and “there is no
dispute about taste” is an old maxim—to
make of the first importance with this Con
vention a petit ion for executive pardon for the
unfortunate individuals who are now incar
cerated iu prison. I submit that it is not the
province of this Convention to entertain sub
jects like these—that the people have not
sent us here for any such purpose, and ttiat
if we do engross the time of the Conven
tion in this way, we shall prolong its session
most unnecessarily. We shall excite exacer
bations which should not be aroused
We should be teuriug open wounds which
had best lie healed. Tuere are those who
believed that whilst we were in the Confed
eracy we lived under an arbitrary despotism.
There are others who think it was the very
type of treedom. I do not think it is germain
to the occasion to introduce such questions
as these. I agree with my friend from Ogle
thorpe, Mr. Matthews, to let the past go.—
We should uot travel out of ttie record even
for the purpose which is indicated in the
resolution. We should uot do so for the pur
pose of soliciting the pardon of the President
or of nominating a Governor- Mississippi
made a nomination, but it was repudiated
by 10,000 majority. We should not enter
tain any extruneous matter, but confine our
sclvas to the restoration of Georgia, to her
political relations to the United Stales.
Hon. Solomon Cohkn of Savannah said :
I regret, Mr. President, that the resolu
tion ot my colleague lias encountered such
opposition. 1 do not think that it has called
for the discussion which it has originated.
11 is true, as the gentleman says, that we
have not been instructed by our constitu
ents to pass the resolution which has been
proposed. lam very sure that our constitu
ents did not so instruct us. The path of
duty was so plain—so well biased out—that
the blind almost could have pursued
it. But, sir, because we have come
here for high and important duties, to calm
the troubled ocean which has been roariug
for four long years, and to assume our posi
tion iu the Union, and our allegiance to the
Constitution ot our lathers, is that any rea
son why we should be lost to the teuder
sympathy of our nature ? Is there uo geutle
tear for the sufferer, no kind feeling for a
brother, even if we believed he was in error?
Are we surrouuded by circumstauces that
must require the members of this Convention
to let the affections of their hearts slumber
in their breasts? 1 trust that no people, es
pecially the loved people of Georgia, stand in
such a position as this. Sir, I endorse the
resolution of my distinguished colleague.—
Let us assume the responsibility of passing
this resolution, and i believe that almost
every man in the length and breadth ot. this
land will applaud us in the act, Mr. lobn
son has done well hd<l nobly towards the
bouth ; we owe him a debt of
gratitude, and so fur as I ant con
cerned! he shall receive it. But shall
we say, by our refusal to adopt tbi* resolu
tion, that he should go no further in the ex
ercise ot bis prerogative of pardon? That la
the naked question before this body. Sir,
the simple question U, Khali we by this reso
lutionask the President to pardon these dts
tiu guished gentlemen referred to? Tb»l Is

man, that it would be disrepectful and em
barrassing to the President to pass this reso
lution. By anther that it would be assum
ing to dictate to him, I should be very sorry
sir, to live to see the time when it would be
embarrassing to any President of the United
States, to listen to the respectful voice of his
fellow citizens. I should tie very sorry to
live to see the lime when that President was
so encased in the duties of his office ns to
turn his heart to atone. Goil grant that I
may never live to see that day. And
shall it go further ,as it will if this resolution
is not passed, that Georgia who helped to
place these gentlemen in this unpleas
ant condition, shall turn a deaf ear
to the promptings of humanity, and tliebi--
seeebiugs for sympathy which come to us
from those who have illustrated Southern
courage and Southern chivalry ? As men wo
can do no such thing. Sir, doss it embar
rass the Judge who sits upon ttie bench, for
the jury to recommend to mercy a prisoner
whom they have found guilty under the
Court. And would it embarrass the
President for us, the representatives ot the
sovereignty of Georgia to ask our Judge, our
President, to do what justice aud humanity
may dictate. I trust, therefore that there
will be no dissenting voice on this question,
and that we, while performing other high
duties which may devolve upon us, may
not refuse to stop and aid iu alleviating the
sufferings ot even a worthy wayfarer.

Mr. Hill gave notice that he would move

Mr. Jenkins, from the same Committee, re

elections.” This ordinance le-apportions the
counties ot the State into seven instead of
eight Congressional Districts, aud provides
that an election be held for Governor, mem
bers of Congress, and Representatives in the
General Assembly of the State, on the 15th
ot November, and for an election of Mayor
and Aldermen of the city of Savannah on the

tion ot the Registry of voters, which is dis

Gentleman of the Convention :—Brig.
Gen. Tillsou, Acting Assistant Commission
er of the Bureau ot Refugees, Freedmen and
Abandoned Lauds, has communicated to me
a proposition on a subject to which I invite
your attention. You will fiud it contained
in a copy letter hereto attached.
Not having power to confer jurisdiction
on Courts, or to prescribe the mode of trial
of offenders, I could not enter into the ar
rangement suggested, but submit the mater
to ttie discretion of the Convention. Such
an arrangement, if made, and executed Hr
good faitu by the officers designated, will, iu
my judgment, tend much to au early remov
al of military law.
Provisional Governor of Georgia.
The letter of Gen. Tiltson alluded to in the
above Message, a copy of which is not at
present procurable, is iu substance as fol
He represents to the Governor that the
Buienu of which be is Chief iu Georgia, is
embarrassed in the administration of justice,
aud in the regulation of tbe colored popula
tion, by a lack of a sufficient number ot offi
cers ot ttie army to act iu all the counties of
tbe State. Thai the objects of tbe Bureau
aud tbe welfare of tbe community would be
greatly promoted if the Governor would au
thorize him to appoint iu the various coun
ties of the State, where there are no military
authorities, Justices of tbe Peace and Ordi
naries to act as Agents of tbe Bureau ; that
in making such appointments be would be
governed by tbe fitness of the applicants, re
quiring only that such agents, iu the dis
charge of their duties, should administer
simple justice, without regard to condition
The message and tetter were referred to
the Committee of Sixteen on business.
Mr. Joshua Hill of Morgan County, ob
tained the tioor and said; —
Mr. President, 1 gave notice on yesterday
that I would this morning move the recon
sideration of the ordiuauee repealing the or
dinance of the l'Jth ot Jan. 18(51, and subse
quent ordinances aud resolutions. I made
this motion iu no captious spirit, aud with no
desire to make a procrusteau bed for auy
maut o be laid upon, it was made with uo
purpose of producing a schism between those
who approved the secession ordinance aud
those who condemned FI. My object was to
give expression to my individual sentiments
upon the subject. I am not in tbe habit of
governing my couduct by considerations of
policy. It is a habit which I shall adhere to.
On this oceassion, at the solicitation of many
friends, who tour years ago, agreed cordially
with me iu opinion upon the subject of se
cession, ami for a variety of reasons, the
best of Which is the harmony of this body,
aud the danger ot distracting its counsels, I
have beeu induced to reconstdet that matter.
The appeals of my friends, and the induce
ments they suggest do pot fall unheeded up
on me. 1 cleciate upon this floor, that even
after the sorrows which have come upon this
land I have no personal bitterness towards
any man in Heaven or ou earth who has
contributed to bring about the secession of
this Stale. There ate to day higher, udbler
considerations tbau the mere discussion of
this great subject, which weigh upon my
tnißd, uud it is not my purpose uor is it my
feeling to limit my associations with meu
politically by the test of catholicity iu regard
to opiuious on this subject. 1 would not
wound the feelings of auy man. I am frauk
to gay that my associations with men who
have disagreed with mo upon ibis subject,
both in my own county and elsewhere, are
aud have beeu of the most cordial character.
My labors in this body shall bo bent to one
single purpose, ard that is the earliest ad
mission ol Georgia into the Union and the
restoration of her ancient rights, so tar ae U
mry be permitted. That Is my earoeet de
-1 sire. I have no lrientla to reward nor sum
tnies to punish. I have not yet combined i
with anv political organization. I do not
say what 1 shall do in the future. lam un
willing to he the first to produce dissension ;
in this body, and therefore I withdraw my
resolution to reconsider.
A resolution was introduced that the Con
vention appoint a Committee of two to ascer
tain and report to ttie next Legislature what
laws are necessary and proper to be passed
in consequence of the alterations made in
the fundamental law, and especially to pre j
pare and submit a mode for ttie regulation
