••The Congress passing the amendment to
tbe Constitution abolishing slavery in the
different departments of the Government,
aDd most of the Legislatures of the several
States ratifying it. construe the amendment
to t>e nothing 'more nor less than a declara
tion asrainst involuntary servitude, confer
ring therewith on Congress the restricted
power to carry such declaration into execu
tion by necessary and proper laws. Such is
the natural import of the language employed,
and snch doubtless will be the const!union
given it by the different departments of the
Government in all controversies that may
hereafter arise. Under other circumstances,
a proposition to ratify such an amendment,
would not be entertained by you. Although
tbe “cannon's roar and the trumpet's clangor
are no longer heard," society still moves on
in its resistless way, and it is necessary that
we should accommodate our action to the in
exorable demands of inevitable results, that
the permanent welfare of our people may be
secured and our Stats restored to her former
political rights and relations.”
The above paragraph from the able and
excellent Message of Governor Johnson to
the Georgia Legislature embraces an import
ant statement, and the assertion of a manly
Strong objections have been made to the
ratification by the Southern States of the
amendment to the Constitution of the Uuited
Stales abolishing slavery on the ground that
it may confer, by implication, on CoDgress
the power of regulating generally tbe inter
nal policy of the States. Governor Johnson
savs that such a construction is unwarranted,
, fiber by the language employed, or the ob
jects sought to be attained, and the Congress
in passing it, and most of the Legislatures of
the several States ratifying it, construe the
amendment to be nothing more or less than a
declaration against involuntary servitude,
oonferring therewith on Congress the re
stricted power.* Such, he argues, is the na
tural import of the language employed, and
such <1 mi!, l less will be tbe construction given
it by he different departments of the Gov
ernmeu. tu all - controversies that may here
after atise. Tbe most noticeable feature in
his remarks upon this subject is contained in
the declaration, that if this construction of
it were incorrect, a proposition to ratify such
an amendment should not be entertained by
the Legislatures of the Southern States; thus
clearly implying that conditions of recon
struction may be proposed which the States
of the South have a right to reject.
This significant declaration by a Southern
statesman, pre-eminently distinguished for
his conservative views and strictly Union
sentiments, will meet with the hearty ap
proval of just and patriotic men in all pat ts
of the Union.
We desire as ranch as any one to sec the*
States restored, at the earliest possible mo
ment to their appropriate and natural posi
tion as States in the Union, aud left to the
free and unrestrained exercise of the privi
leges and prerogatives belonging to them, and
this policy we have advocated with all the
zeal and earnestness ot which we were cap
able. If our republican system of Govern
ment is to be retained, it can only be done
by the recognition of the equality of ihe
States composing the Union, and by strict
adherence to the constitution and laws.—
When we go beyond the constitution in
search of powers to fit special cases not pro
vided for, and disregard tbe plain require
ments of existing laws, we are at the same
time doing great injustice somewhere, and
making a precedent whose effect can only be
pernicious. If, however, the ferocious radi
cals of the North, acting upon the assump
tion that the Southern people have no rights
whatever, aud are entitled to no privilege,
not accorded as a gift and a mercy of the
conqueror, should obtain control of the
government and present to the Southern
States unjust and humiliating conditions, a
compliance with which would be necessary
for the accomplishment of restoration, we,
like our Provisional Governor, should cer
tainly claim the right to oppose-and reject.
The spectacle of a confederation of States,
inhabited by people having a common lan
guage and identical interests, one portion of
which were free and independent, exercis
ing all the rights and privileges rightfully
belonging to States, while the other portions
are held as conquered provinces, denied
equality, and not allowed to legislate for
themselves, or discharge any of the functions
of government, such a spectacle would ex
cite the derision of all civilized nations, and
■would be a ridiculous burlesque upon repub
Against such a state of things this paper,
although zealously devoted to the cause of
reuuion upou just principles, will ever raise
its voice and use its influence, for tbe reason
that there is no substantial cause why the
States 01 the South, lately in rebellion, should
not again be received into the full fellowship
ot the family of States. They have disband
ed their armies, laid down their arms, taken
the oath ol amnesty, and now appear to have
but one single object in view, aud that the
repair of the waste and devastation ot the
war, which has impoverished tbe country
and lcf . s people well nigh destitute.
' *' we '"^ ievc > as the radical journals
of the _,urt’u assert, that President Johnson
expects the men of the South to profess an
extravagant love for the Union which has
beaten and crushed them. We do not be
lieve that he looks for extra professions of
loyalty from them, or that he would be in
clined to trust and confide in the professions
of men, who having just dropped the sword
should claim that they had been always true
to the Union. He is Wo sagacious a states
to be thus deceived. He has shown that he
understands the feelings and sentiments of
tbe Houthern people, and hois too fearless
to desire or expect any extra professions of
loyalty from those who but ao recently made
the whole world resound with the din and
raitle of their war-liko efforts

This queoiiuo lies at the basis of a change
that would prove injurious to Uta inter, sis o
jabor, although it might be beneficial, in
some instances, to those who would enjoy, by
abriJgiug tbe hours devoted to work, a laig,r
fund of leisure. A small portion ol working
men with proper instincts it would place iu a
position to acquire knowledge, and enter on
a career of independence. Dut to the large
majority of the working classes, it is appre
hended, that ao much leisure would prove a
fatal gift. It is this class that must remain
under the spur of necessity, to labor twelve
hours in twenty-four for a livelihood They
cannot afford to lose one-third of their time
perhaps devoted to idleness and dissipatiou.
Almost the first question that arises, is
such a scheme of labor favorable to accumu
lation ? Experience shows the reverse The
only true sources of accumulation are
abstinence and increased effort. We find the
depositors in .Savings bank among those who
waste the least aud work the longest, consis
tently with physical comfort, and not those
who are indifferent to tbe loss of time —that
most precious boon of the working man.
Speaking in tbe interests of labor such an
arrangement would be of infinite mischief to
she laborer himself. The leisure it would
give him he could not turn to profitable ac
count unless he combined with it some other
employment. He might pursue at intervals,
and by snatches of time, witbio doors, some
mechanical pursuit that possibly might make
his remuneration equal to, if not larger than
if he had worked twelve hours in the twenty
four, at some steady employment, but the
number of persons are very few who could
associate with their regular hours of labor
some other desultory employment.
The scheme is in a general point of view
incompatible with existing social arrange
ments. How could one uniform rule or prin
ciple suit all descriptions of labor ? How
could it adapt itself to the Farmer as well as
the Mechanic and Manufacturer ? How could
it equalize the woik on a farm' with that iu a
work-shop or Manufactory f All occupations
would have to be reduced au artifical level
to equalize the work and the compensation.
Four hour's work at one employment
would be equivalent to six or eight hour's
work a! another. It would be an attempt to
briug dissimilar modes of industry within au
uniform rule, which no more could he effect
ed than the difference in the qualities of la
bor as to hardship, risk, &c. In short it is
one of those impracticable devices that eviu
cea an undue interference with the laws ot
society. It attempts to revive a policy that
has become absolete, regulating labor, sub
stituting the quantity of labor for the rate ot
wages. Under the disguise of a regulation
to benefit the working classes it tends to their
injury, if not demoralization.
It has been said truly that extended labor
operates like discoveries in machinery, to
the benefit of the laborer. Labor-saving ma
chines economize labor, and multiplies its
productions, so does increase ot exertion.
If a man works twelve hours,' instead of
tight hours per day, he adds one-third more
to the quautily ot work he accomplishes, in
a given time, and provided he does not impair
his physical strength, becomes richer for his
increase of exertion. It were better both
for laborer and capitalist that the relations
between them should be of spontaneous
growth, and not be the effect of any artificial
THK RGPOHT OF THK SKCUETAKY
OF THK NAVY.
The Secretary of the Navy states in liis re
port that the steamers bought from the mer
chant service for war purposes, have been to
a great extent returned to their former pur
suits. He reviewed the services of the North
and South Atlantic in the taking
of Wilmington and Charleston tespectively,
and of the West Gulf squadron, which re--
ceived the surrender of Mobile on the 12th
of April, and tbe formal surrender of the
Confederate Navy on tbe 10th of May, 18G4.
Immediately after fall of Fort Fisher and
Wilmington, measurea were taken for the
reduction of the Navy, which have been con
tinued until, at the present time, there are
actually in commission, at home and abroad,
but one hundred and seventeen vessels, of
all descriptions, and this number will prob
ably be lurther reduced. As loon as domes
tic troubles were overcome,foreigu squadrons
were re-established, which are considered
sufficient for the encouragement aud protec
tion of our commerce. Three hundred and
twenty-two officers left the service of the
government when the war begun. Their
places have been filled efficiently with volun
teer officers from the merchant service, and
it is recommended that appointments from
their number be added to the Navy. Since
the 4th of March, 1861, 418 vessels have been
purchased at a cost of $18,366,681 83. Ot
these 340 have been sold for $‘>,621,800 27.
The Secretary suggests a thorough survey of
islands in the Pacific coast. The history of
the Sea King, alias tho Shenandoah, is given.
It reflects no credit on the neutrality or Eng
land. The enlargement of the Boston and*
New York Navy Yards is urged, and the
completion of the Navy Yard at Mare Island,
on the Pacific. Also the rebuilding of the
Yards at Norfolk and Pensacola. League
Island is recommended as a site for tbe build
ing of a yard for iron clads. As to the
healthiness of iron clads, the statistics show
that they are equal, if not superior, to ordi
nary vessels. The number of Midshipmen
at the Naval Academy is 481. Os those who
present themselves for examination twenty
per cent fail to pass the physical or mental
examination. After admissiou nearly thirty
three per cent, fail to pass first year, and fin
ally only about twenty-five per cent, of those
who enter the Academy succeed. The Sec
retary recommends the appointment of oue
balf the midshipmen from enlisted appren
tices, and the remainder from Congressional
districts. He also recommends that au
eligible site for a Naval Academy,
embracing an area of not less than one thou
sand acres be settled—that the laws of De
cember 21st 1861 and July ltith 1862, (Wreg
ulate pay of workmen in public service be
repealed. He also recommends that two
separate Asylums for soldiers, and sailors,
be built. The number of vessels captured
aud sent to courts for adjudication from May
Ist, 1861, to the close of the war, was 1151.
Tlie whole number captured and destroyed
1504. Gross proceeds of property captured

Dear Sir,—l have been afflicted many years with
severe proatruling cra'mps iu.rny limbs, cold feet aud
hands, and a general disordered system. Physicians
and medicine* failed to relieve me. While visiting

The Plantation Bitters make the weak strong, the

Persons of sedentary habits, troubled with weak

beneficial iffect. They are exceedingly agreeable,
perfectly pure, and harmless.
