The dispatches from our telegraphic cor
respondent at Milledgeville. which will be
found on the first page, give an interesting
summary of the first and second day’s pre
ceding* of the Legislature.
The two most interesting features ot the
whole are a resolution introduced in the
Senate, asking the Governor for information
touching the relations ot the State of Geor
gia with the United States, and what im
pediments, if any, there were to the full res
toration ; and the proclamation of the Gov
ernor declaring the election of the new mem
bers of Congress from this Slate, with tbe ac
companying announcement—that, under pre.
sent advices from Washington, he should
withhold Irora them the usual certificates,
which constitute the credentials upon which
they will be admitted to their neats, if adrnit
t and at ail.
This most remarkable executive proceed
ing taken in connection with tbe fact, equal
ly- strange, that no allusion is made in the
proclamation to tbe election of Governor,
would indicate the existence of troublj
ahead, the character and extent of which,
however, seem enveloped in profound mys
The announcement that the resolution rati
fying the amendment to the Constitution
probffitiDg slavery, had passed both Houses
with great unanimity, is gratifying in the
expectation that it will have a salutary in
fluence upon the conservative counsels at
Tbe intelligence in the despatch of the Bth,
that the Governor elect, Mr. .lenkins,bad de
clined inauguration until the 15th, instant,
and that the Legislature would lain; a recess
until that day, of the same inexplicable
tenor that characterizes the official announce
ments of Governor Johnson with reference to
The meanings of some of the events that

THE SOUTH CAROLINA LAND AND IM
Os the great variety of matters claiming the
att'ention of our intelligent business men, that
of supplying the pressing demand for labor is,
perhaps, the most important. It is a topic
of discussion with all classes of the people,
aud is beginning to attract the earnest atteu
tion of our Legislative bodies. The South
Carolina Legislature, we are pleased to ob
serve, has the subject under consideration ;
and a bill has been introduced which provides
for the organization of a jLand Company for
the purpose of inducing the immigration of
free white labor to the State aud the develop
meol of her agricultural resources; the com
pany to lie formed by the subscription of ten
thousand shares to the capital stock at fifty
dollars per share ; to be paid either in money
or in land at an assessed valuation The
company to have the privilege of increasing
rts capital to a million of dollars, and to com
mence business when one hundred thousand
dollars has been subscribed, in the manner
before mentioned. AVlien a sufficiency ol
stock has been subscribed, the Commissigu
ers are authorized aud directed to call a
meeting of the subscribers lor the purpose ol
fully organizing the company by the election
of a President and Board of Directors. The
company, when organized, is to have all the
powers and privileges incidental to corpor, -
tlons, and capacity to hold real estate, to
purchase vessels, to employ agents and to do
such other matters and things as may be ne
cessary for the purposes of the coiupauy.
The most striking aud important feature
of the Bill, says the correspondent of the
Charleston Courier, is a proposition to exempt
from taxation all the properties and dividends
of the company, unless the latter shall ex
ceed the legal interest of the State. This is
by way of encouragement to the interprizc,
and is cot without precedent.
The same allowance has heretofore been
made by that State in the case ot the Charles
ton and Savannah and other Railroads, and
*it will, probably, meet with no opposition in
As this interesting subject will doubtless,
be considered and acted upon in some form
by the Georgia Legislature, we commend to,
its consideration the seemingly meritorious
scheme as presented above.
