The Savannah Daily Herald. BY 3. W! MASON &■ CO. kamvml w. mauon,... w. T. THOMPSON, A ••octal* Editor. -:-q , :•** the legislature 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 tery. 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 Washington. 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 our Congressmen. The meanings of some of the events that have transpired thus far at the State capital, although as clear as mud, we arc forced to admit baffle our feeble powers of c >mpre hension. Perhaps the reader will be more fortunate. THE SOUTH CAROLINA LAND AND IM MIGRATION COMPANY 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 this Bill. 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. IN GENERAL. • —The rich and prosperous city of New Bedford is alluded to by a Loudon paper as “a small aud poor town, the inhabitants of which are engaged almost exclusively in the whale fishery. 1 ’ —“ls that sage cheese of a reflective turn?” asked Dr. Spooner of the provision dealer. “No, sir, not a mite,” was the reply —General Howard is not apprehensive of any great amount of suffering among the blacks of the South this winter. —Boarding-house lndv.—“Do you like meat rare, sir!” New Lodger.—No, madam.

Robberies of stores and out rages upon pedestrians having become fear fully prevalent there. —\\ ork has been slopped upon the new and extensive General Hospital at Hilton Head. Tue buildings had been nearly com pleted, when the orders to ibis effect were received from Washington -In the South Carolina Legislator,, the other day, Mr. J. Harieston Reid, of George- 1 town, offered a resolution in the House 1 ooking to the revival of the time hon ored custom of arraying the Speaker in the garb of office, which is the Parliamentary blue gown. It haa been the custom In’South Carolina from her birth as a Slate, and ceaa. ed only whvn the approach of Sherman s army endangered the safety of the robe, which, for security sake, wa« removed to tbt country. —There ta a atory in circulation that Men Ilashsm, the Ambassador from the ltey o| Tunis, upon being taken u> one of the Uos ion suhneii, and seeing Utu large Dumber of di am* and soholars, suppoeed It was the Mayors llareui, aud luograiulauid bliu upon that hypothesis. • COMMERCIAL.- REMARKS.
