DEATH OF' I.ORD PALMERSTON.
It is an old saying that “Death loves a shin
ing mark.” One of the most eminent of
English statesmen, and whose official life has
been protracted for upwards of half a centu
ry, died recetitly in the lulness of his fame,
lie was the oldest but one of the brilliant
trio, (Brougham, Lyndhurst and Palmerston)
which has shed so much lustre on the British
annuls. Lord Brougham stilt survives in a
green old age, verging on his 90tlr year.—
Lord Palnferston entered public life uuder
the auspices of the Tory party, and rose,
by degrees, to the post of Prime Minister.—
In ttie revolution of parties in England,
which led to the ascendancy of the Whigs,
he divided with Lord John Russell the iead
ership of that party, each being alternately
Prime Minister. Lord Palmerston has never
entertained the extreme opinions held by Lord
John Russell on Parliamentary reform, be
ing in favor of a more restricted suffrage
than the latter nobleman. He stood iu a
similar position in England, to that of M.
Guizot in France-, while the party of which
be was the organ aud representative resembles
very much that of the juste millieu iu France,
of which M. Guizot was the head.
Lord Palmerston’s influence with the
House of Commons was potential, of which
his long continuance in the office of Premier
was the evidence. He is said to have under
stood the management of the House so well
that he was rarely defeated in any question
in the success of which he was interested.—
He never spoke unavailingiy. To borrow a
phrase from Mr. Burke—“he knew howto
hit the House between wind and water.”
What influence his death will cause in the
foreign polity of Eugland time will soon de
termine, as Parliament assembles shortly.—
ft is not impossible Unit Mr. Gladstone will
be his successor. The line of domestic poli
cy is sufficiently indicated by tlie general
course of measur es adopted by Lord Palmer
ston aud sustained by the Wbigs. Lord
John Russell is, we perceive, spoken of as
the individual who is, iu the, technical lan
guage of the English papers, “to hold the
seals,” hut in our opinion his sway would be
but temporary. Mr. Gladstone is the “bright
particular star ” iu the horizon of English

[From our Special Correspondent.!
Milledoevillb, Oct, 17tb, 1865,
At the close ot our report this morning,
the Couvention having no business before it
took a recess till 3 o'clock p. m., to await
the report ot the committee of sixteen.
THE LEVI AND SALE Os PROPERTY.
On the reassembling of the convention Air.
Parrot of Bartow,introduced an ordinance to
prevent the levy and sale of property by
Sheriffs, until after the adjournment of the
next Legislature. The stay law of the last
Legislature being of force only during the
war, tlie levying of executions and sale of
property at this time was, he declared, pro
ductive of a great sacrifice of property.
The ordinance was on motion, referred to a
select committee, composed of Messrs. Parrot
of Bartow, Boyd of Newton and Hill of Mor
Judge C. H. Sheckley of Columbus, intro
duced an ordinance declaring null and void
all liabilities created by tlie State in aid of
the war, which he desired should be referred
to a special committee of seven to be ap
pointed by the chair.
The introduction of this ordiuaoce gave
rise to considerable discussion, which was
participated in by Mr. Parrot of Bartow. Mr.
Reynolds of Newton, Gen. Hansell of Cobb,
Air. Jenkins of Richmond, Mr. Seward of
Thomas, and others, the aisagieement being
oti the reference of the ordinance. Air.
Vance of Polk, moved to lay the ordinance
on the table for the balance of the session.
This motion was opposed by Gen. Hansel),
Mr. Reynolds Mr. Revan, Mr. Jenkins aud
Air. Parrot, who desired that the matter
sjould b(G#ft, with the commit ee ot sixteen,
to be reported upon with other matter con
tained iu the Governor’s Alessage. These
gentlemen were unwilling to dodge a ques
tion so important and so deeply affecting the
character ot the State. They were unwilling
that Georgia should bo subjected to the dis
grace ot repudiation and were iu favor of
settling tlie liabilities of the State in equitable
terms. All-. Seward contended that there was
no legal Obligation to pay, but was willing
to scale the war debt to a specie basis and
pay it. Much of the debt he said was not
aDd never would become due. It was pay
able one year after a ratification of pence be
tweeu the Confederate States and the United
States, which could never take place. If he
agreed to pay a man $5,000 on the birth of
his first male child, aud the man never bad
a male child, he thought he would not
be obliged to pay the money.’
The motions to lay on tlie table and to re
fer to special committee being withdrawn,
the subject was left with the Committee of
Sixteen, who, it is helieved, will report to
morrow adversely aud in favor of sealing and
paying the war debt.
THE EMANCIPATION ORDINANCE.
Mr. Jenkins from the Committee of Six
teen, reported Article I. of the amended Con
stitution, which comprises the Bill of Rights,
and is, with some slight alterations the same
as that adopted by the Convention of 1861,
with an additional eiause, declaring that as
the United Slates Government have emanci
pated the slaves of Georgia as a war mea
sure, and have put the measure in practical
operation, slavery or involuntary servitude,
except as puuishment for crime, shall not
exi.-t in Georgia, but that this acquiescence
in the action of the government of the Uni
ted States shall not prevent or eStop anv
citizen from appealing to the justice and
magnanimity ot the U. S. Government for
compensation for liis propel ty. This with
the other sections of the constitution so far
as reported by the committee, was adopted
without opposition or debate. The Conven
tion adjourned tilt half past nine o'clock to
THE SPIRIT OF THE CONVENTION.
Thus far the deliberations of the Conven
tion have been of the most harmonious char
acter. It was. apprehended on Thursday
that un exciting discussion would he induced
by Mr. Hill’s motion to reconsider the ordi
nance repealing the Ordinance of Secession,
but all such apprehensions were happily dis
pelled this morniug by that gentleman's
withdrawal of his motion to reconsider.
After the recommendations of the Gov
ernor's message, it was thought that there
would be a strong effort made in favor of the
repudiation ot the war debt, but it is evi
dent that a change has taken place in the
views of many members on this subject
within tlie past ten days. There are some
who will adhere to repudiation, but I think
there is a very decided majority of the Con
vention who will iavor an equitable adjust
ment of all liabilities, of whatever kind, that
have been contracted on the good faith of
the State. The Committee of Sixteen will
probably make their report on this subject
From the manner in which the business
of the Convention is progressing, and the
workiug ipirit of the body, especially of the
able Committee of Sixteen, which so thor
oughly muturos mutter for its action, Ido
not think the session will occupy more t ban
somo five or six days longer. There la an
evident auxlcty outlie part of a majority ot
the members to accomplish their work and
return to their homes.
We hear very little ot polities, or elec
tioneering, though eamiiuntes lor Governor
are mentioned, among them Hon. Charles

Tlie time for disseminating the new ap-"'
porlionment of counties is very brief,especial
ly when we consider the deficient mail faqjii
ties ol tbe country, liut it was eonsi(|#re<t_of
the utmost importance that the civil organs
zation of the State should be completed at
as early a day as possible, aud that onr re
presentatives should be in Washington ready
to take their seats at the opening oi Uougrcss
on the first Monday in December. Very little
time is allowed for the arrangement of polit
ical combinations, but if the people of the
several districts act promptly, suitable candi
cat< s can be selected, and it is doubtful
whether tbe true iuterests of the State and
country will not be quite as well represented
as they would be if lime was allowed for the
“fixing of tlie triggers ’* by the politicians.
No time should be lost iu the first Congres
sional District in bringing out an able man
for Representative, with candidates for Gov
ernor and State Representatives. As there
are no questions now to divide Ibe people, it
is to be hoped that no contest will be inau
gurated in the approaching election. Let us
unite upon able, good and true men without
reference to partizau issues. The strifes ot
party Will count soon enough.

On the opening af the Convention this
morning alter the irnusacliou of proiimiuary
business, Mr. Parrel's Ordinance suspending
levy and sale of property was reported by
the special committee to whom it bad been
reierred, with a recommendation that it be

whether U ws* a emuimon preanutw) l>y
Prcslmmt Johnson, for thdle-eeWbllsljnHiq
of amicable relations with the United States !
Government, thftt the State of Georgia should
repudiate the debt contracted in aid of the
late civil war.
Air. W arren was opposed to repudiation
per se If however tbe repudiatioi* of the
war debt was a sine <put i ton, if without repu
diation the State was to be excluded irora
the Union, he desired to know it from the
most reliable and authentic source. He
wanted no telegraphic dispatches to be
spiting upon the C'onveition as in North
Carolina, at the moment when this body
was about to vote on this important meas
ure. We were in u position to be dictated
to by the conqueror. We have already ac
cepted that dictation in the emancipation of
our slaves—if we were required to repudi
ate the war debt of the Stale, be wished that
tlie responsibility of lbs act sliouid rest
were it belonged. If it was au act of coer
cion, he desired that it should so staud on
Col. Goode of Houston, sustained the re
solution in a spirited speech. VYe had suf
fered degradation already. He was opposed
to making such au inquiry. The convention
should he governed in its action by its own
convictions of duty by its own sense of
honor. There was a misapprehension at the
North in regard to this matter. It was snp
posed that the debt was a secession debt,—
a purely rebel debt. This was not so. He
had opposed secession in the convention of
1861. He had never believed that secession
was the proper remedy lor tlie wrongs of the
South. But he had been a member of the
Legislature of Georgia, and as a Georgian
stood by the State in resisting her enemies.
He. with others who had oppposed secession,
had voted money to clothe and feed the brave
soldiers who were defending our homes aud
The debt was contracted by the
people of Georgia without distinction of
party—it was made in good faith—the honor
of Georgia was pledged,—aud for one lie
would never vote to fix the slain of repudia
tion on the escutcheon of our proud old Com
monwealth. There was no reason why we
should ask through the Provisional Governor
the views of Prelident Johnson. Such a
course would be still deeper humiliation.—
He hoped therefore that the resolution would
not be passed.
Air. Keauan of Bald win,moved that Ihe reso
lution be laid on the table. In the terms of re
construction [imposed by the President there
was no such couditiou as the" repudiation
of the debt of the Slate. The U. S. Congress
18C4, passed a law in which the repudia
tion of the war debt of the rebellious States
was set forth among the conditions, bat
President Lincoln did not sign the law, and
in his subsequent proclamation lie did not
make any such requirement. President
Johusou required no such action on our part
or he would have made it known to the Con
Hou. A. H. Cbappel, of Aluscogee, sup
ported the resolution. He islt no humilia
tion iu making the iuquiry. It was well for
the Convention to kuow the views of the
President who had proved himself our friend,
aud who now stood as a barrier between us
and these radicals who sought to inflict still
greater injury upon the South. President
Lincoln bad prescribed repudiation in his
proclamation, aud President Johnson fol
lowed out the idea in his letter to Gov. Hol
den, of North Carolina, which was sent as
au act of friendship to the South.
Air. Matthews, of Oglethorpe, opposetHhe
resolution. The actiou ot the Convention on
this subject should be governed alone by the
honest convictions of the members. He was
opposed to repudiation. He did not feel that
Georgia was disgraced or humiliated.- Her
sons bad contended manfully for Southern
independence. They bad failed, and like
.men they accepted 'he result. There was
no disgrace m this. But there would be last
ing disgrace and degredation in repudiation,
which, for one he was unwilling to sliare. It
was not in the power of Government to in
flict such a disgrace upon us. Only bayonets
aud dungeons can prevent uouesi men r.,,,..
paying their honest debts. The Speaker
paid a high compliment to President John
son for Ins generous and manly course to
the South, aud expressed the belief that he
would impsoe no such terms as repudia
Geu. Hansell, of Cobb, hoped the resolu
tion would he laid on the table, lie did not
believe that any such terms would be re
quired of us. Gentlemen had said that we
had already submitted to terms depressing
our people of their property and rendering
their lauds comparatively valueless—that we
had swallowed the camel and were straining
at a guat. If we had submitted to the loss
ot our .-laves it was as a result of the war—
it was accomplished by the military power
mill we could not resist it. If we have
swallowed the camel he was in no humor tor
a dessert, even if it was a gnat. The State
of Mississippi did nor repudiate her war
debt, aud it was known that the President
had most cordially approved the action of
her Convention. It was not proper for us to
iuvite him to impose repudiation for which
be would never vote, as a condition of re
