Asdeeson qf Savannah, has re ■ iiortcil the draft of the memorial to the Pre ■ sideut of the United States, relative to the I pardon ol Jefferson Davis and other disting- I uiilied political prisoners, to the committee I of the Convention appointed to memorialize I the President on that subject. It has been I accepted by the committee and will be pre- I seated to the Convention to-day. j The memorial is as follows. ! To His Excellency Andrew, Johnson Pre- I sulcnt of the United States : The delegates of the State of Georgia, in I Convention assembled, do earnestly invoke I the Executive clemency in behalf of Jeffer- I sou Oavis oi Mississippi, Alexander H. I Stephens, of Georgia, J tines A. Seddon of ! Virginia, A- 6. Magrath of South Carolina, ! William Ailison and David L. Yulee of Flo rida, and II.W. Mercer of Georgia, now con tiued as prisoners of war jii Fort Pulaski, and of all other prisoners simiiariy circum stanced. Your Excellency lias been pleased to re store Mr. Stephens to his liberty. He re- I turns to the grateful people of the State as a solemn pledge of the magnanimity which nilcs flie public council, and his great name and inllueuce will be potent to revive the unity of the past and to fructify the wise and generous policy which your Excellency has inaugurated. Emboldened by this example, impelled by the purest of motives and stimulated by the prayers of a numerous people, we appeal for clemency in behalf of the distinguished per sons we have named. Restore them to liberty and to the embraces of their families. Translate them from captivity to the light of freedom and hope; and the gratitude of the prisoners will be mingled with the joyful ac clamations which shall ascend to heaven from the heart of this people. Mr. Davis was elevated to his high po sition by our suffrages, and in response to our wishes. We imposed upon him a re sponsibility which he "did not seek originally. Opposed to the sectional policy to which public opinion, with irresistible power, final ly drove him, lie became the exponent o our principles aud tbo leader ol our cause. He simply responded to the united voice of his section. If he, then, is guilty, so are we. We were . the principal,—he was our agent. Let not the retribution of a mighty nation be visited • upon liis head, while we, who’urged him to his destiny, are sutlered.lo escape. The liber al clemency of the government hits been ex tended over us. VVe breathe the air, aud experience the blessings of fieedom. We herefore ask that the leader, who in re sponse to the democratic instincts of his nature, the principles of bis party and the solicitation of his section, became “the head aud front of our offending,” shall not now he bruised for our iniquities, nor punished or our transgressions. «. Mr. Davis was not the leader of a feeble and temporary insurrection. He was the representative of great Ideas and the expo nent of principles which stirred and consoli dated a numerous and intelligent people. The people were not Ids dupes. " They pur sued the eourse which they adopted of their own free will and he did not draw them on, but followed after them. It is for these reasons that we invoke itfe Executive clemency in his behalf. His frame is feeble, his is delicate and broken by the storms of State. He languish es out in captivity a vicarious punishment lor the acts of his people. Thousands ot hearts are touched with his distress. Thou sands of prayers ascend to r Heavcn for his relief. We invoke in his behalf the gener ous exercise of the prerogative to pardon which the torn and pTiuciples of the Consti tution offer as a benificent instrument to a merciful Executive. We ask the continu ance of that career of clemency which your Excellency tins beguu And which alone we earnestly believe can secure the true unity and the lasting greatness of the nation. — Dispensing that rnefey whieli is inculcated by the example of our Great Master on High, your uaiue will be transmitted to your coun trymen as one of the benefactors of mankind, the Constitution of the couutry renewed and fortified by your measures, will once more extend its protection over a contented aud happy people, founded as it will be upon the consent and affections, and resting, like great arch of the Heavens, equally upon all.

Ciiil Officers to Act as Agents of the Mies’s Bureau. THE PRESIDENT’S DISPATCHES CON CERNING REPUDIATION. (Special Dispatch to the Savannah Daily Herald. | Milledgeville, Oct. 30, 1865. The Convention to-day passed an ordinance authorizing Ordinaries, Justices of the Infe rior Court and unofficial citizens to act as agents of the Freedmen’s Bureau. The Governor sent in a message at the morning session, transmitting the following dispatches received from Washington ; dispatch 1. “ Washington, Oct. 28. “ITO His Excellency, Governor Johnson: “Your dispatch has been received. The people of Georgia should not hesitate one single moment in repudiating every single dollar of the debt created for the purpose of aiding the rebellion against the government of the United States. “It will not do to levy and collect taxes from a State and people that are loyal, and in the Union, to pay a debt that was created to aid in taking them out of it, thereby sub verting the Constitution of the United States. “I do not believe that the great mass of the people of the State of Georgia, when left uninfluenced, will ever submit to the pay ment of a debt which was the main cause of bringing on their past and present suffering— the result of the rebellion: “ They who invested their capjlal iu the creation of this debt, must meet their fate, and take it as one of the inevitable results of the rebellion, though it may seem hard to ilium. “It should at once be made known, at home aqd abroad, that no debt contracted for the purpose of dissolving the Uuion of the States, can or will be paid by taxes levied on the people for such purposes. (Signed) Anduew Johnson, President of the United States.” DISPATCH 11. “ Washington, Oct. 26, 1865. —To His Ex cellency, Gov. Johnson: Your several tele grams have been received. The President of the United Stales cannot recognize the people of any State as having resumed the relations of loyalty to the Union, that admits as legal obligations, contracts or debts crea ted by them to promote the cause of the re bellion. (Signed) Wm. H. Seward.” Tbe9e dispatches settle the question as to the repudiation of the war debt of Georgia. The Convention was originally nearly unani mous iu opposition'to repudiation, but will now, I think, accept the imperative condi tion upon which the reconstruction of the State depends. STILL LATER FROM THE CONVENTION. COL. ANDERSON’S MEMORIAL ADOP TED. AN EXCITING DEBATE ON REPUDIA TION LOOKED FOR. The President’s Wish to be Obeyed. A LOAM OF $500,000 AUTHORIZED.

(Special Dispatch to the Savannah Daily Herai.d.[ Milledgeville, Nov. 1. - An amendment to the Constitution lias been adopted reducing the Senate to thirty three members. Each district is to comprise four pounties. Judges of the Supreme Court are to be elected by the Legislature: aud Judges of the Superior Court and Solicitors by the peo-' pie. A proposition is now pending to reduce the House of Representatives to eighty-four members. By its provisions, thirty-six c.oun ties are entitled to one representative for every two counties, the change to take effect in two years. (From the Associated Press.) Milledgeville, Oct. 31. An ordinance was introduced by Mr-Co hen of Savannah to sell the State road and appropriate the proceeds to meet the State indebtedness, which was tabled, temporarily, after a long aud earnest discussion In which Mr. Hill of Morgan, aDd Mr. Parrot of Bar tow, opposed the proposition as designed in directly to assume the payment of war debt. Mr. Cohen repelled the imputation as one who had suffered deeply, but was actuated only by pure patriotism, and was not inter ested to the amount of a dollar. The constitution has been altered to make the election of Judges by the people. Ex-Governor Brown has declined to run again lor Governor. There is a strong movement on foot to nominate Hon. A. H. Stephens for Gover nor and Judge Jenkin9 to remain on the Supreme Bench. Milledoevli.e, Oct. 31. A resolution was adopted duriDgthe morning sessions, asking the provisional Governor to furnish the Convention wiili all telegrams sent by him to Washington about repudiation.
