" fjf For Commercial Intelligence sec Fourth Page. _ No Paper To- Morrow'. — No paper will be issued from this oflice to morrow, in order to permit the employes of the establishment to observe the National Thanksgiving Day in accordance with the proclamation of the Pre sident. The next issue of the Herald will therefore be on Saturday morning. 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 ballots. THANKSGIVING DAY. 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 lowship. 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.

The Macon ani> Augusta Railroad. —The Macon Telegraph in an article urging the claims of this road upon the capitalists of that city, states that “Augusta has responded nobly, her subscriptions, individual and cor porate, aggregating SBOO,OOO, aad that the South Carolina Railroad Compauy, contrary to its settled policy has contributed liberally to the enterprise. * This road when completed, and its assets are already sufficient to iron it, while it is entirely free from debt, will give the direc tion to the llow of the products of that region either to Savannah or Charleston, the pro ducer having the choice of either market.— Does it not behoove the merchants of Savau nah to be keeping an eye to their interests in that quarter ?" Tub South Carolina Congressmen Elect. The Charleston Courier of Tuesday says : We learn that General Samuel McGowan, General John D. Kennedy and Colonel Jas. Farrow, members elect to tbe United States Congress, were in Columbia last week and received their Commissions from Gov. Orr, but, in accordance with President Johnsou’s despatches to Governor Perry, returned home to await the actiou oi Congress on the ad mission of the State. Our immediateTtepre sentauve, lion. Wnt. Aiken, has also receiv ed his Commission, hut will likewise await tne actiou ol Congress. —Accoraing to accounts in English pa pers, fiir Morton.

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 notions. 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" well ou Oil Creek, iu Pennsylvania, serves lo | illustrate the Immense increase of valuation Ia successfully developed oil territory ac qulrea. Four yeara ago Dr. Egbert imn ha-- ed torly acres of undeveloped territory lor one thousand dollar", taking his last dollar lo pay the aunt.

Petroleum. 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 vincing. 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 stclions. 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 commenting.

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 well. 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.
