The SavannaTi Daily Herald. Provisional Governor Perry’s Mes sage to the South Carolina Legis lature. Gov. Perry's Message to the South Carolina Legislature, nfc>w in session, is published in the Charleston papers.— Wa make the following extracts con taining the principal points of interest out side the State. After remarking upon bis own position and how he came into it, the Governor reviews the action of the State Convention and the changes effected in the State Constitution. He then touches upon the duties of citizens under this m:w obder or things. Such, gentlemen, is the new Constitution under which you have ..assembled, and which, it is hoped, will inspire the people of South Carolina with new Democratie zeal and energy in developing, intellectually and physically, the talent and resources of the Stale. It is true that, under the old regime, South Carolina has given the Itepubiic a bright galaxy of names which she may well be proud of; but her material prosperity as a State has not kept pace with that of her Southern sisters. Her population has been moviug to the Southwest till there are, at this time, almost as many native South Caro linians living in other States as there are in this State. They have drained the State too, of her wealth and energies. For the last thirty or forty years we have likewise been oblivious of all internal improvement in our fruitless and vexatious supervison of the ac tion of the Federal Government. Agricul ture has Deen neglected, manufactures almost ignored, and commerce despised. Foreign immigration, which lias filled other States with wealth and population, developed their resources and made them happy, prosperous and powerful, has been discouraged in South Carolina. Her riches have been ex hausted by her dependence on others for al most every thing she consumed or needed. We have been dependent on the Western States lor our horses, mules, cattle and hog 9, bacon, lard, and beef. From the Northern States, we have received the furniture of our houses, and implements of our farms and the carriages in which we rode, and the clothes which we wore. This policy must no longer be continued. It should be the pride of every farmer and planter iu the State to raise, grow or make everything which he uses or needs, Slavery has been abolished, and labor made more honorable as well us more necessary. They who have Heretofore spent their lives in ease and idleness will be forced to work. Plant ing and the learned professions are no longer the only honorable means of livelihood for our young men. They must become trades men, manufacturers, farmers and mechanics. Immigration of industrious foreigners must he encouraged. Then manufacturers will spring up, commerce will revive, and we shall become an independent people. The emancipation of our slaves will, in all probability, abstract greatly from the active labor of the country. Planters and farmers should dispose of a portion of their lands to immigrants and capitalists from Europe and the North. Thjp will increase the wealth and industry of the State, and render more valuable the lands which remain unsold. It will also have a wholesome check on the colored population,'and strengthen our se curity from insurrections and violence.— ThreoTourths of the State of South Caroli na are uncultivated. Instead of a popula tion of seven huudred thousand, our territo ry is sufficient to support one of seven mil lions, if properly distributed in manufactures, commerce and agriculture. THE PKEEDSIEN, It becomes your urgent, duty, gentlemen, to make immediate provision for the protec tion and government of the freedmen and colored people who have been so suddenly released from slavery iu their ignorance and destitution. This is alike due to humanity and justice, as well as the imperative neces sities of society. The negro has lost the protection of his master, and he must bow be protected by the law. This is expected of you by the President and the Federal' Congress, and will remove all pretence for military rule in the State, as well as facilitate your speedy restoration to the Union and sell government. The negro is innocent of *ll that he has gained and all that you have lost, and he is entitled to your sympathy and kindness, your protection and guidance.— The Convention ordered the Provisional Governor to appoint a Commission for the purpose of preparing and submitting to the legislature tor tueir adoption, a code of laws lor the protection and government of the freedmen and colored persohs. In obedience to their order I have appointed Judge Ward law and Mr. Burt, two of the most eminent jurists in the State, to compose this OoouMte sion. They will, iu due time, re non to you the result of their labors. The Convention also authorized the Legislature to establish a Court in each district for the trial of all cases in which freedmen are concerned. It be comes your duty to see that these Courts are organized. SPEED* ELECTION OF MEMBERS OF CONGRESS ADVISABLE. The election of Members of Congress should be provided for at as early a day a& possible. It is a matter of the highest im portance that our Representatives in Con gress should be iu Washington, ready to.take their seats first Monday iu Dec. By Act of Congress, passed March, 18(13, it is made the' the duty ot the Clerk of the previous Houso of Representatives to “make a roll of the Representatives elect, and place thereon the the names of all persons, and- such persons only, whose credentials show that they were regularly elected in accordance with the laws of theif States respectively, or the laws of the United States" It is therefore the, imperative, duty Os the Clerk to call the roll Os ibe members of the Southern States,whose credentials have been exhibited to him, and shown that they were regularly elected. He itaß no more right, under this Act,to exclude the members elect from South Carolina than be bus to exclude those irom Massachusetts. The Federal authorities have maintained that the Union ncvfwas dissolved, and that the Southern Stptes nave always been, and still arc, members of that Union. THE TEST OATH. Iu July, 18(12, Congress passed an Act prescribing an oath of. office for all persons to take who were elected or appointed to any office ol'honor or profit under the Gov ernment of the UniterWtates. This oath re quires the party to stmir that he has never borne arms against the United States; that be has never held-or sought office under any EowtV inimical to the United States; that be as given uo aid, counsel or countenance to persons iu hostility to the Unitedßtates; and that he lias not yieldad a voluntary support to any authority hostile to the United Btates. If this oath Is to ho applied to members of Congress, it will, of course, exclude all from South Carolina. It may, with truth, be said, that no limn iu Houllt Carolina can take it without committing perjury, liut the Con stitution of the United States prescribes an oath for members ol Congress to take, and Ijity cannot ho required to lake any other oath constitutionally, Thuro may b«vu been some show of pro j'llHv lor exuding this oath when It wasen •ii'U'il, amidst the war tail ween the Houlhein hlali's ami Hid United Hiatt * ; but lliiN nan he noun now, unlisa It Ini for the purpose of schilling the Houiluirn people from an office llltln I 101 l it>|atlUti Nates, and still hold g those Nutt* Iu billllsry subjection. J fa (Ik jlarannalt Jattr Jerald. know that this is not the policy of the Presi dent, and I cannot believe that it will be the avowed policy °f the Federal Congress. If ~ T out .‘ ) l ern members are present when the r,ou is called by States,-they will take a part in tne organization of the House, and may vote agaiust the oath being tendered to the members when they are sworn. _ , TH * rEDKBAI. TROOPS IN TIIK STATE. The reorganization of the militia is a mea sure of the highest importance, under exist ing circumstances. I have received informa tion from the Secretary of State at Washing ton, that as soon as our Stale Government"is organized, all the Federal troops would he withdrawn from South Carolina. We must then rely on the militia for the protection of the State against insurrection and domestic violence. It is a matter of serious considera tion, however, whether we should nht desire to retain, for the present, a portion of the Federal troops hi the State. The freedmen and colored people look to these troops as their friends and protectors, and would be much less likely to have any collision with them than with the militia. The colored garrisons, which were at one time stationed throughout the country, have done infinite mischief, by inducing the negroes to believe that all the lands of their former owuefs were to be divided out amongst them. This bas made them discontented and unwilling to make coutraots*for the ensuing year. In many portions of the State, there are serious apprehensions of disturbance at the begin ning of the next year. Strong garrisons ought *o be continued in Charleston, Beau fort and Georgetown, where there is such a preponderance ol the negro population. But' these garrisons should not be permitteffito exercise any civil jurisdiction, and should bo subordinate to civil law. Otherwise their presence would be productive of more mis chief than good. _ You will take sucU action in this matter as in your judgment shall seem best for the State. MUCH TO HOPE POR TET. Iu conclusion, 1 would urge you, gentle men, to look only to the future in your leg islation, and forget, so far as you can, the past. There is much to hope and live for, yet, in South Carolina. We ahould congratu late ourselves and the country that civil war has ceased, and peace is restored to the land. No longer are our citizens to be forced from their homes and families and offered a bloody sacrifice on the field of battle. No longer is our beloved State to be ravaged and desolated, and our towns and villages com mitted to the flames. A merciful Provi dence bas once more blessed our land with an abundant crop, and no longer have we any apprehensions of want ana starvation. We are in the enjoyment of heahh. Our young men, noble and gallant soldiers, are peaceably resuming their former vocations, and exerting themselves in restoring the State to her wonted prosperity and happi ness. No civil broils or deadly feuds are dis gracing our deopie as in other States. We lave no political divisions. South Carolina presented a unit after her act of secession, and she is now united as one man in return ing to the Union ; and yv'Ul be as true and loyal to her plighted faith as any State North of Mason's and Dixon’s Line. In this respect there is no difference between former Seces sionists and old Union men. They all have equallyat heart the peace, honor, glory and prosperity of the American Republic. And I earnestly pray that all your legislation and deliberations may tend to tbis great purpose, under the guidance and protection of Al mighty God. B. F. Perry.

IN the year 1846, the writer embarked in the Drag Bnsineas in the city of Philadelphia, and while thug ongaged, made several exiwriments In regard to Iho ■ most desirable mode of preparing Fluid KxtraAa My efforts being-uccessful—the articles being approved acd ■»ed bv the Medical Faculty—l was desirous of placing them before the public, but hesitaod far sometime before concluding to resort to newspaper advertising) knowing of the prejudices that existed in Hie mlndsof nfcny again* using advertised Medicines or Nostrums, btit through the advice of friends and those who had used them this objection was overcome. Alter 18 y.ars' - xertkms. commencing in a small wav, the popularity of my articles has extended to all parts of the United States, and widely throughout Foreign countries—and this in the face of much oppneition. Everv means has been resorted to by unprincipled deal ers since their merit and soccess havo ben known— inch as advertising larger bottles at less price, censoring all other preparations, and even copying my advertise ments—but I am happy to state that out of tlie many who have resorted to hare been successful. MY OBJECT n this notice is to make facta known to the pnblic and respectable dealers, believing, after so many years' ex ertions, that the Druggists will discountenance such proceedings, and that the reputation of my articles may not be damaged by the use of InferioV or spurious ones. Knowing that many may read this article who are nnacquuinted with me, I append a few remarks from those of my native city, and whose names are known in ail parte of the world ? “Being personally acquainted with Mr. H.

Mr. John H. Reagan, late Postinaster-Geti eralof the Confederacy, while a prisoner 1; Fort Wairen sent an address tp the peoptt of Texas, the substance of which comes. t< ua iu the New Orleans papers. The topii of most Importance which he discusses ii that of sufrage. *He says ‘ 'M “To the conferring of the 'elective fran chise on your former slaves,’ I anticipate' i stubixirn and sincere opposition, based oil the ignorance of the great ■ mfiss of them and ou their total want ot information am experience in matters ot legislation, atlpain istration, and everything which pel tains U the science of government aid upon th« pride of race. AJid this objection may b sustained by pointing Us the examples o Mexico, and of the Central American ane South American States, where, by the en| franchisement ot the Indians and the ne; groes, and ail olheis. without reference U race, or mental or moral fitness for the ex ercise of these responsible rights, they havt been deprived of the blessings of peace, or' der and good government, and involved'h an almost uninterrupted series of wars anc revolutions, often of the most crnel and bar barous character, for more titan half a cen tury, wiih no present prospect of an mneli oration or improvement of their condition But these difficulties are not insuperable if you meet them with patience and reason I have no doubt yon can adopt a plan whief will fully meet the demands of justice sqc fairness, and satisfy the Northern mind, ant the requirements of the Government, with out endangering good government and th< repose of society. This can be done by : i First, Extending the privileges and pro lection of the laws over the negroes as they are over the whites, and allowing them U testify in the courts on tfie same conditions i leaving their testimony subject to the rules relating to its credibility, but not objecting to its admissibility. And *n tbis you wit conform with the wise 'current ot moderr legislation, and the tendency of judicial de cisions in ail enlightened countries. And, second, By fixing an intellectual and morar, and, if thought necessary, a pro perty test for the admission of all- persons tc the exercise of the elective franchise, with out refdduce to race or color, which w.oiilc secure’its intelligent exercise. My own view would be : First, That no person now entitled tc the privilege of voting should be deprived o it because of any new test. Second, That to authorize the admissior of persons hereafter to the exercise of tbt elective franchise, they should be, first, mates; second, 21 years ot age; third, citizens of the United Stales'; fourth, should have re sided in the State one year, _ and in tlte dis trict, county, or precinct, six months nex preceding auy election at which they pro pose to vote ; fifth, should be able to read ii the English language sixth, and must have paid taxes for the 1»« year preceding for which snch taxes weri due and payable, subject to any disqualid-. cation for crime, of which the person may have been duly convicted, which may b* prescribed by law. The adoption ol these measures, in nddi tion to those before mentioned, would, ii my judgment, meet the ends of justice ans fairness ; secure? the re-establishmeut.of Stqti government, the admission of her Senator and Representatives in Congress, the sus ; pension of military rule, and the restoratiot of civil, constitutional and local self-gov eminent. Ami it would do more. It woulr secure your protection against other grea and pending evils, and is, I am persuaded of the greatest consequence to your fntur peace, prosperity and happiness. First, It would remove all Just ground of antagonism and hostility between til white and black races. Unless this is done endless strife and bitterness df feeling mas characterize their relations. And all histor and human experience teach us must soone or later result in a war of races. \Je nov know, 'from sad experience, what war is between equals and enlightened people. Bu of all wars, a social war of races is the mos relentless and cruel. The extermination, o‘ expulsion from the country, or enslavemen of the one or the* other, being its inevitahli end, where they are left to themselves ; o the loss of liberty to both races, where they are all subject to the control of a snperio, power, which would be our situation, speak of course, ofthe legal rights and statu.' of the two races. Their social relations an matters of taste and choice, and not subject to legislative regulation. Second, This course would disarm an, put an end io ( the inter-state, sectional, poli tical agitation, on this snttject, at least, which has been the special curse of our country so so many years, and which was the cause o the unnumbered woes we have recently ex perienced and still suffer, by depriving tlx agitators of a subject on which to keep u'( such an agitation, and of the' means of pro dticiqg jealousy, animosity and hatred he tween the different parts ot the country, anc between the different races. And this would dp much toward the renewal of the ancient relations of national harmony and fraternal good-will between all parts ofthe country. And tbis, too, is of {be greatest consequence to our future welfare, and especially us out people now know there is no hope of escape from it by appealing to the principles ol State Sovereignty and jhe right ofseces sion. If the State will accept this policy atODce. it will attain the great ends heretofore men tioned, and it wilt pave its own people from years of pHinful strife and agitation on these questions, which would at last, probably after years of contention, be fonod to be the only means ot bringing it to an end, even if it led to nothing worse. How infinitely better it would be for for both races, fnt the present and the future, tor the whole country, if you will unhesitatingly recognize the unalterable facts as to your condition, and the inevitable logic of events; and hasten, as is in your power to do, the retnrt of the blessiugs of civil government and con stitulionalliberty ; and avoid, as itis in yout power to do, the feaiful perils which now lie before you. I know the painful struggle against education, and habit and policy, anc’ tradition and prejudice, which such a courts! will require you to encounter, and how hare it is for human nature to overcome such dif ficulties. But my sincere prayer is, tha God, in his goodness and mercy, mq| ’enable you to exhibit tbis last crowniuj evidence, in the midst of your calamities.” j TRY ONE POUND. FURNIfURE! . • .FURNITURE!
