. GOVERNORS MESSAGE.
Gentlemen of the Senate ancl
House of Jiejiresentatives :
Since you last assembled great changes
have taken plaee in our social and political
condition, and upon you it is imposed the
delicate and arduous task of adapting our
laws nod their administration to the wants
and demands of society. To effect this pur
pose successfully, it will be readily suggested
to you, that it will not only be necessary that
many of the existing statutes be repealed or
modi tied, but that also many new provisions,
defining crimes and regulaliug the adminis
tration of law, be introduced and adopted.—
In a communication of this character, a
specification of the proper alterations and
amendments could not be expected. In this
connection I will however remark.that, from
my experience at the bar, I do not hesitate
to affirm, that one of the most serious evils
which has heretofore characterized the ad
ministration of civil and criminal justice, has
been the delay attending the trial of causes
in the Circuit Courts. Hesitating plaintiffs
and reluctant defeudauts, whether debtors or
criminals, resort to stratagem aud demand
continuances as a matter of right, which ate
usually allowed, or at least often allowed,
upon a slight aud trivial shoeing. The trial
should be fair and impartial; but, in human
'governments, judgment against un evil deed
should be speedily executed, that “the hearts
of the children of men should not be set in
them to do eVii.” The trial is had for the pur
pose of ascerla n ug the truth ; and the testi
mony of witnesses, though uncertain, itili
ble, and often lalse, is the best and only
means given to us, to arrive at it; and it
will -be borne in mind, that the tendency of
the age in alrclvilizco governments is. not
to limit abiirsrily the range of examination,
but to enlurgeJt j not to lucressu the class
of bersous main incompetent hi testify by
Iliu rules of the common law, but to allow
uveu parlies to the cause to be heard | to
submit the character and the credibility ol
the witnesses Ut the judgment and discretion
of an »uligli**uid Court and jury, to lie by
them, under III# rules aud sanctions of law,

mutilated Bach penalties tor crime should
be prescribed and inflicted «s will meet the
approbation of the merciful and humane :
such as will uot, by their severity and bar
barity, cause enlightened juries to shrink
from the duty of prompt conviction on tes
timony excluding reasonable doubt. Our
financial condition-ana our deranged social
relations require anew code. One which
shall have incorporated in it the principles
and maxims alluded to. Solitary confine
metnent m tbe Penetentiary is to be succeed
ed by penalties more adequa'e to tbe sup
pression of crime, and more effectual in pro
tecting society from danger.
I trust that iu a few days 1 shall be able to
lay l*tore you a report from tbe Superintend
ent of the Western and Atlantic Railroad,
showing the receipts apd disbursements from
tiie period it was turned over to the State to
the present time ; .showing also tbe progress
made in the construction of the bridges and
all other material details therewith connect:
ed, ot general interest. The operations for
the period of tiiYie stated, under tbe manage
ment aud control of tbe Superintendent aud
subordinates will, it is believed, he highly
satisfactory, and will recommend the indus
try and fidelity of tbe otficeis to a general
aud unqualified approval. Appropriate
qualifications for the successful management
ot a road transacting so large aud so exten
sive a business, and the requisite capacity
and attainments proper for tbe acceptable
discharge of the functions of the Executive
office, can seldom be found united in the per
son of any one individual. Moreover, the
ordinary duties pertaining to such position,
are sufficiently numerous and ouerous to re
quire the undivided time and attention of any
man to whose charge such a trust may l>e
committed. For these reasons and a variety
of others that will be readily suggested, I
recommend that tbe control of the road be
taken out of the bauds of tbe Executive aud
be placed under the direction and manage
ment of a Commissioner, whose duties shall
be prescribed by law; that he shall tie elected
by tbe people of the Stale, as is the Govern T
or; that he shall report directly to the Legis
lature, and shall be by them subject to remo
val for malfeasance iu office.
Under the wasting and demoralizing influ
ence of war, our schools and Colleges have
fallen into decay, and our youth for a few
years past have beeu called and' transferred
from the Academy to be exercised and train
ed in the Camp. But peace has returned and
with its return the late Convention not un
mindful us the obligations Government is un
der to provide for the education of the people
did ordain that the University of the State
should be adequate!}' endowed. In carrying
this injunction liberally And generously into
practice and operation you will only follow
tbe precepts and example of the enlightened
and patriotic fathers of the Republic. To the
prompt discharge of this important duty, in
terest, honor and patriotism all unite to in
vite you. Located in a healthy region, sur
rounded bv a virtuous and industrious popu
lation, ana the citizens of the town and im
mediate vicinity devoted to science and
learning, tbe University of Georgia can and
ought to be made more than ever tbe cherish
ed object of the affections of her people.
The appropriations and donations which
have heretofore been made, though mostly
lost or consumed, have not been vain and
fruitless expenditures. The bar, the bench
and the pulpit have shared in the rewards of
such liberality. Science and learning through
the agency of endowed professorships can
and will accomplish new and great' r
triumphs, aud through your fostering care
secure to you their patrons, a ]tlace in his
tory as the benefactors of our. race.
Discussion and experiment suggested that
the Supreme Court should hold its sessions
at the Capitol. Tbe suggestion was adopted
and carried into execution by the Conven
tion. To complex the work of good policy
thus tardily begun? it is proper and expedi
ent that the Capitol itself should be here de
clared and considered permanently located.
Here it occupies a central and accessible po
sition in the midst of a section once fertile
aDd passing beautiful. Man impelled by
avarice and prodigality has partially destroy
ed and wasted tbe lavish gifts of nature, but
and anew social economy
these desolations may be repaired.
The public grounds should be enlarged,
improved and ornamented, the Halls of Leg
islation ought to impress’the spectator with
the power of the State, and her courts of jus
tice with tlie Majesty of the law. Annually,
improvement should be added to improve
ment, and ornament to ornament, until the
name of the Capitol-shall become a praise to
the whole people.
On tlie first ot February last, the Congress
of the United States, by joint resolution, pro
posed to the Legislature of the several States
of an amendment to the Consti
tutionwif the United Stales, declaring that,
hereafter, neither slavery nor involuntary
servitude, except for crime, should exist in
the United States, or in any place dlihjecl to
their jusisdiction; aud that Congress should
have-power to enforce the proposed article
by appropriate legislation. A copy of the
proposed amendment is attached, and it is
submitted to tbe consideration of the Legis
lature with the hope and desire that it may
be adopted and ratified. Avery common
objection is made to it on tbe ground tbat it
may confer, by implication, on Congress the
power ot regulating, generally, the internal
policy of the State. Such a construction is
believed to be erroneous and unfounded and
unwarranted, either by the language em
ployed, or the objects sought to be attained.
The Constitution of the United States con
fers, among other things, upon Congress tbe
power to regulate commerce with foreign
nations aud among tbe States, to declare war,
to raise and support armies, aud to provide
for calling forth tbe militia. It is fnriber
provided, that Congress shall have power to
make all laws which shall bp necessary and
proper to carry into execution these enumer
ated powers; but it has never been contend
ed tbat, because of suclt authority, Congress
was thereby invested with the right to sbolisb
State Courts, to»prescribe tlie qualification of
jurors, or to declare who should exercise the
right of suffrage. Moreover, this amendment
is strictly oumulative, and it is not intended
by it, either to repeal or modify any of the
existing provisions of the Constitution; and,
thererore, it will still be for the several States
to prescribe, each for itself, who shall be
electors for the most numerous branch of
their assemblies; and, as a consequence, who
shall be qualified electors for members of
the Congress passing it, the different De
partments of the Government, aud most of
the Legislatures of the several States ratify
ing it, construe the amendment to be nothing
more or less than a declaration against in
voluntary servitude, conferring therewith on
Congress the restricted power to carry such
declaration into execution by neceuary and
proper laws. Such is tbe natural import ot
the language employed, and such doubtless
will be tlie construction given it by the dif
ferent Departments of tbe Government In all
controversies that may hcrcafisr arise Under
other circumstances, a proposition to ratify
such an amendment, would not* he enter

people from pains, penalties and forfeitures

THE COTTON CROP.
To our Friends in the Interior.
As the quantity of cotton now iu the in
terior is a matter of much moment, we would
ask our Iriends to give \is any reliable in
telligence they can obtain upon the subject,
and would also solicit our contemporaries to
aid in this important matter by requesting
their friends to do tbe same for them.
Tbe points in Georgia where Accumulations
now remain, are chiefly upon the railroads,
and if some one at each place would take tbe
trouble to write to a newspaper the stock on
hand, the desired object would practically be
There are other matters connected with
this subject, of importance to trade, that
might be mentioned in writing, and to reach
them, we would suggest answers to the fol
lowing queries as of great interest:
To what part will most -of the cotton in
your town be shipped ?
What quantity will be brought to market
from this year's planting ?
Wbat quantity remains in the country
tributary to your market ?
What number of bales is there in your
town now ?
The last question can be answered with
some degree of certainty, but tbe others are
simply matters of opinion.
We would request this information from
every depot in Georgia, and solicit the aid of
our contemporaries in canyiog the design to
New Discoveries nr Agassiz —lmport
ant intelligence from Professor Agassiz’s
Brazilian expedition is given. The Professor
writes that the success of his investigations
exceeds his most extravagant dreams, ana
that the discoveries he has made will require
anew classification of 9ome of the genera of
the animal kingdom. Within the brief space
of fourteen days sixty new species of fish
were found, and of some hundreds of speci
mens collected up to tire beginning of Sep
tember, but one-third have hitherto been
knowu to science.
The imperfect accounts of these remark
able discoveries thus far received will stimu
late the curiosity of scientific men and add
greatly to the popular interest which lias al
ways attached to the investigations of Agas
siz. His previous discoveries on the Florida
Keys and in the Lake Superior region are
succeeded by an enterprise which opens a re
markable chapter in tbe history of bdeoce.-
It is honorable to the American character
that the means for prosecuting this new and
most successful undertaking were provided
by the enlightened munificene of a private
citizen of Boston.

—Ford’s Theatre, Washington, is now

—Baltimore papers exult in the success of
their steam tine to Liverpool, the pioneer
ship “Somerset” having returned under fa
vorable conditions, and three cargoes of
freight are said to be already waiting for the
next steamer. The Gazette says:
“The Somerset has the honor oi being the
first American'merchant steamship which
has sailed from our country to Europe since
tffh close of the war, while her first voyage
has been, in all respects, so eminently suc
