The Municipal Election Yesterday.—
Hon. E C. Anderson Elected.— ln ac
ordance with an Ordinance passed at the
State Convention, an election was held at the
Court House yesterday tor Mayor and Aider
men for Savannah, to serve until the regular
election in October next. The polls were open
ed at seven o'clock in themorning.aud closed
at six in the evening Fourteen hundred j
and sixty-five votes were polled. At seven j
o’clock the Superintendents of the election
assembled in the Inferior Court Room, and
commenced to count the ballots At a late
hour last night the count had proceeded far
enough to leave no doubt that the whole
ticket of the Hon. Edward C. Anderson was
elected, with probable one exception. f lt
was the general impression that Mr. Chris
topher C. Casey on the Arnold
ticket was elected by the supporters
of the opposing ticket. The election
passed off with the utmost quiet, notwith
standing the exciting closeness of the con
test. When the polls closed there was con
siderable huzzaing, after which tire large
crowd gradually left the Court House. There
was a large number ot split tickets, and the
entire night will be consumed in counting
The people of the United States are invited
to assemble to-day in their several places of
worship, to offer up thanks to the Supreme
Director of ail for the many blessings which
have been vouchsafed them in averting the
moral and physical evils by which communi
ties are ordinarily afflicted, in the form of
pestilence, iamine and foreign war, while in
the abuudauce of the fruits of the earth we
have special reasons for thanks. The Presi
dent in his Proclamation gracefully uliudes
to the cessation of that destructive civil con
flict that has wasted the National resources
and disorganized our people, giviug promise
of the restoration of peace and harmony
throughout all the borders of the laud.
In tue aspirations of those whose oflice it
is to offer up prayers at the shrines of religion,
it is hoped that these will meet with an an
swering sympathy and love from those in
whose breastSj reside tire instincts of piety,
and that there will be a general suspension
of secular pursuits.
This is the first call from the supreme head
of tho nation since the advent of peace, to
unite iu that free will offering of thanks and
that invocation to the God of all, by the
humble and the exalted, the destitute and
those blessed with affluence, that brings the
whole within the sphere of religious duty—
that connects all in the bonds of religious fel
It is the most striking feature in the char
act'er of the American people, that they so
frequently assemble, under the inspiration of
pious gratitude—suspending all profane em
ployments—to offer up accents of praise to
the giver of all good. This spontaneous out
pouring of hearts filled with gratitude, has no
parallel in any other part on he world, and
now that all sections of our country recently
plunged in deadly strife,are called on to unite
iu offices of thanksgiving, It should meet
with that response which shows that we are
not insensible to the impressions thft belong
to tue occasion.

SHALL THE KESOt RCICM OF THE
MOUTH BE DRV ELOPKI) !
To the TditorS'Of the Samrmah Dmily llernid :
The wealth of a country consists iu its
lands,—their productions—its mineral--—t » r
development—its well organized system of
labor and available capital which is the
motive power of the whole machinery.
The South is rich in lsndg—the broad acres |
of its alluvial bottoms, the extensive slopes
of its sunny hills, and the verdant pasturage
of its mountain tops being the just pride ol |
every native of this charming clime. Her
countless bales of the hoary king—“so
called' —as they wended their way over the
loug .ines of railroads or descended the tor
tuous streams fiom the retired plantations to
the great centres of commerce and manu- I
factures, constituted a panorama of a kind
to awaken the enthusiasm of every beholder. ,
Her mines of gold and iron, the two main j
sinews of war, as well as the two pillars of
peace and prosperity, gave forth their rich
treasures iu profusion, under the application
j of s well organized and powerful system of
labor, supported by large capital and direct
!ed by 4he foresight of wonderful genius.
Amidst all this charming scene ot prosperity
and rapid development of resources the toe j
sin of war sounded its dread alarums—the
earth seemed suddenly to produce whole
crops of armed men instead of her white
robed staple and yellow harvests of cereals—
and like the besom of destruction, every
thing perishes in its track. Her lands now
jie uncultivated—her mines uuwrougbt—her
system of labor disorganized—and her capi
tal to a very great extent, has disappeared.
But the fertility of her soil still remaius
the richness of her rniues has not been im
paired—the bone and muscle is still in exis
tence and capital may be commanded in
amounts sufficient to make this now desert
land blosom like the rose. Shall it be done?
Will tbe wisdom of our legislators be exert
ed in organizing anew system of labor—in
inducing capital to come forth from its hid
den vaults and to flow in from the rich de
posits elsewhere, to encourage labor—or will
they be too short-sighted in their policy, too
selfish in their actions to see tbe result of
such a course and to avert its miseries. Will
the capitalists continue to employ their
means exclusively in trade, whereby their
profits are seemed, it is true, but the prima
ry support goes to maintain the labor system
of other localities, leaving the laborers
of our own country to perish? Is it not clear
ly the duty of such men at this crisis
to give another direction to their investments?
The fancy goods of other lands are not so
important for the recuperation of our coun
try, us the extensive cultivation of our lands—
the preparation forloreign markets of our
princely forests—the development of our
rich minerals—the manufacture of articles
for home consumption—the construction of
railroads—and the encouragement of indus
try and education#
By such large importations of mere lux
uries, they are encouraging extravagance—
withdrawing capita! from the country induc
ing idleness, and crime, and thus adding
deeper misery to our intense sufferings.—
Away then with these articles of luxury
place not the temptation before the weakness
of our poor suffering countrymen —import
nothing but articles of prime necessity and
encourage the people to work on the farm —
in the forest—manufactory and mine.
There are opportunities for profitable in
vestment on every hand—investments by
which the resources of dttr country will be
developed by your efforts, and the wealth
will not be diminished as it now is by your
traffic in merchandise of fine linen and fancy
The iron mines of Qeorgia and Alabama, it
fully developed, would enrich the entile
couniry—the gold concealed in the bowels
of Georgia and the Caroiinas, if raised and
coined, would alone supply the circulating
medium for the whole Union—the immense
coal fields of Alabama, if properly worked,
would furnish fuel enough for every city iu
the South, besides maintaining large depots
at suitable ports tor every steamer that might
touch at any point on the coast, or at our
neighbor, Havana—and again, if Petroleum,
that newly crowned king of the coal regions
of Pennsylvania and Western Vitginia, be
the product of coal, as is generally coueeded
by our best scientific geologists, then Alaba
ma presents a field for the profitable invest
ment of capital that never before has beeu
equalled. Examine the Geological Map
oi that State, by Prof. Tourney, aud see what
a broad expanse of territory abounds in what
he very modestly designates “the best coal
field in America." The surface indications
of this wonderful oleaginous fluid are very
striking to tbe eye of the experienced “ oil
hunter" throughout the entire area of this
coal region—the dip of the geological strata
of Northern Alabama—the iorinntious of
slate, sandstone, and shale, and the
discovery of oil in many localities float
ing on the surface of stagnant pools and
streams of water—all tend to confirm the
obelief that Alabama is rich in this newly dis
covered source of immense wealth—and the
fact, that Petroleum has been recently found
in Keutueky and Tennessee, in quantities
that promise to surpass even the famous
wells of Venango county, -Penn., is another
ro ng indication that this valuable material
exists throughout tbe entire chain of tbe
Cumberland Mountains, lrom Pennsylvania
to the Mississippi river.
Companies ate rapidly but quietly.organ-
iziog for thoroughly testing tbe country.—
Already most of tbe lauds considered “favor
able boring territory" have been secured by
purchase or lease, and orders for saitable
machinery for sinking test wells arc in the
hands of the manufacturers. Those who are
so fortunnte as to secure investments in the
original companies will lie “masters of the
situation," lor as soou us the first paying
wells are sunk, new companies will be or
gnnized with larger capital stock, smaller
working fund, and ou much less territory.
The history of tbe famous “Coquette"

| illustrate the Immense increase of valuation

THE PHEvIUK.VT'S MBNNAOK.
| The telegraphic synopsis of the Message,
which appeared in the Herald of yesterday,
though vcxatiously meagre of details, by
reason of its brevity, is sufficiently intelligi
ble to warrant the gratifying conclusion that
our patriotic PresiJeut adheres, with the
manly firmness which has ever been one of
: the distinguishing characteristics of his poli
| tical life, to the plan of reconstruction which
i had beeu previously foreshadowed in his fre
j queut interviews with prominent citizens
I from all parts of the Union.
I After laying down deliberately and dis
' tiuctly the postulate that all acts of secession
were, from the commencement of our natioual
difficulties, null aud void ; that the States,
theoretically, are not responsible as distinct
political sovereignties ; with the correlative
axiom that individuals only are amenable to
the law on the score of treason, he proceeds
to the illustration of these fundamental pro
positions by a course of reasoning most
strikingly clear, cogent, compact aud con
He does not hesitate to express unequivo
cally his opposition to the permanent exis
tence of military governments over the South
ern States, as being inconsistent with that
concilitary policy the observance of which
by the Government aud people, he deems ab
solutely essential for an early suppression of
the present state of feeling which, so far from
contributing to the restoration of soothing re
lalious.siich as existed in the early days ol *he
Republic, would both perpetuate aud iuten
rifv sectional animosites between the divided
His patriotic admonition to all parties in
the late terrible conflict to lay aside preju
dice and ill-feeling and to work together fra
ternally for the restoration of harmony and
prosperity throughout this broad land, can
not fail to make a salutary impression upon
the minds of all who are not under the do
minion of passion and prejudice. He pro
pounds the interesting inquiry: whether it
is too much to ask, that on the one side the
plan of restoring the energies of the Govern
ment shall proceed in conformity with a
willingness to cast the disorders of the past
into oblivion, and that on the other
tbe evidence of sincerity in the future
maintenance of the Union be illustrated by a
fall and candid recognition of the self-sacri
ficing demands enforced by the logic of
events. Iu other words, that the Northern
people shall become fully recouciled to the
plan matured aud adopted by the Adminis
tration, and that the Southern people shall
put beyond doubt their sincerity tor the
Union by the ratification of the proposed
ifcti-slavery amendment to the Constitution
of tbe United States. Tbis condition being
Complied with, it would remain, says the Presi
dent, for the States to resume their places in the
two branches of Congress, and thereby complete
l,he work of restoration.
The President is equally explicit and satis
factory iu regard to the suffrage enfranchise
ment of the freedmen. He re-asserts the
doctrine, broadly and distinctly, that this is a
measure which lies entirely beyond the con
stitutional jurisdiction of the Natioual Gov
ernment, and conies within that of the States
respectively, which they cun decide in con
formity with the prevailing popular sentiment
whatever that may be. In this connection
he remarks, very pioperly, that good faith
requires that tue security of the freedmen be
guaranteed ou their liberty, property, and
right to labor aud to elaiin the just rewards
of their labor—a sentiment which will be
as fully recognized aud endorsed by the in
telligent classes of the South, as it is accept
able* to our Northern friends.
If there be still lurking iu the minds of any
of our Southern people a single misgiving at
war with the conviction that the President is
tue uncompromising champion of the rights
of the South to which we are entitled under
the amended Constitution and his magnani
mous reconstruction policy, it will surely be
dispelled, we cannot but believe, by a candid
perusal and impartial appreciation of the in
teresting State paper upon which we are

Died, on the 24th ult., near Whitesviile, Effingham
county, in the very morning of manhood, Mr. AL
BERT F. DASHER, long and favorably known as one
of the conductors of the Central Railroad. Generous
to a fault, kind, oidiging, attentive and polite to al!,
he had won the respect ami esteem ol all who knew
hiui. Perplexing and difficult as the task is of tbe j
Conductor, (who is expected to please everybody),
Nature had bestowed on him such qualities of mind
aud heart; such an even temper and amiable dispo
sitiou, that he filled the position iu an eminent de
gree, and in his death the Company has lost the ser
vices of a faithful and worthy man—not always aud
everywhere to be found.
It is not the object of this humble tribute to use
the language of exaggeration to record gigantic
deeds or the possession of extraordinary genius,
talent, or ability that perhaps seldom exist; but
simply to beat testimony to the unassuming efficien
cy as an upright man, who perforineu all the little
ordinary duties of his position iu life extraordinarily
Mr. Dasher leaves behind Idm a large circle ol rel
atives and friends, who will not soon cease to mourn
his early death, but amongst all, her, who had so re
cently , young and joyous, iu the sunshine of anticipa
tion, started with him on the Eden of life, with bright
prospects of t he future, mutually devoted to each othe r
there seemed, indeed, an assurance of a long and hip
py life Her, who was the stimulus to his exertions, the
object of all his aspirations. Alas, who can fathom the
depth of that sea of sorrow, where buried sudden
and deep that young and tender heart of woman
lies. Its dearest ties broken; its fondest hopes faded
away almost iu an hour; and only left the sad mem
ory of joys scarcely tasted. Oh, how true, this is a
world of disappointment anti trouble. Earthly hap
piness is but a phantom that constantly eludes oftv
grasp. Shall we not, then, strive for abetter one, by
bending with patience and resignation, those af
flictions our Heaven ft Father sends us for his own
all-wise purposes, tiius meriting for ourselves an
eternity ol uninterrupted happiness hereafter, with
the good and dear ones we once loved on earth.
