" " ,N Ah~*7i l I-*- yy For CJiuuierciai Intelligence see Fourth Page- PRO\ ISIO.NAL, GOVKItNOR JOHSSOX OX THK EMANCIPATION 41ESIIOX. ••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 principle. 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 lican government. 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 All that lie requires, If we understand ids H>*T '* dial the |ieo|>le of the Souihtru Si ilo* sliall yield olmdlhiithi to the ('onstltu lion uml law., amt guaiaulce sin li profec tlou (in tin: treodinun and Ids in: w t ondlUwii •» Ids i liiuqjitl I' laibdi with his former niM h r Menu tu Id* judgment to require.

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 arrangements. 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 since blockade prior to first November last, $21,829,548 I*6. Expellees $1,616,213 SO.
