introduction of new matter, and the second
reading aud reference of lulls aud resolutions
introduced ou yesterday.
Ou tbe conclusion of the reading of tbe
journal a motion was made to reconsider the
resolution adopted on Wednesday, to bring
oo'the election of State House officers today.
Mr. Gartrell said tbe salaries of these officers
had been greatly increased by tbe Legisla
ture of 1863-4 Tbe frmer salary of the
Secretary of Stale and •Comptroller General
as fixed by the Code, were $1,600. To meet
the depreciation of the Confederate money
they had been raised to $3,1X10, and The Con
vention by tbe new Constitution having
adopted the laws of tbe last Legislature, and
it being incompetent for tbe Legislature
either to increase or diminish the salary of
an officer during tbe time for which he is
elected, if these officers were elected now
they would he entitled to the increased sala
ry. He desired, therefore, to reconsider the
resolution bringing on the election today in
order that the salaries might be reduced to a
proper compensation. He would then go
into the election.
Tire resolution having bi en reconsidered,
Mr. Gertiell offered absolution changing the
salary ol the State House officers to $2,000
Mr. Stewart, of Spalding, offered a substi
tute tor Mr. Gurtril’s resolution, declaim;
that the salaries should be tbe same as those
fixed by the Code. •
Mr. Jones, of Burke, midutaiued that it
was incompetent to repeal an existing law
Mr. Stewart did not desire to repeal a
statute by resolution. He only desired to
declare what was' the law. .
Mr. Moses, of Muscogee, maintained that
the law of 1864 had virtually repcAied the
provision ot the Code, fixing the salaries of
the officers named, aud that being
declared ot force by tbe Constitution, could
ouly be set aside by a bill which would have
to take the usual couare. and be read ou
three separate days in each HoUse.
After some further discussion the resolu
tion and substitute were voted down. •
Mr. Ridley, of Troup, moved to recon
sider the resolution of Wednesday, refusing
to couftur in the Seuate s resolution to go iuto
an election for Slate Printer. Tbe printer
was not a Constitutional officer, and the ob
jection of salary Aid not apply as in tbe case
of the oilier officers. After soqte debate tbe
motion to reconsider was adopted.
Mr. Dubose, of Hancock, of tbe Commit
tee appointed to announce to Jion. Chas. J.
Jenkins bis election to tbe office of Gover
nor, communicated tbe correspondence be
tween the Committee and the Governor elect,
which was read and three hundred copies
ordered to be printed for each House.
m Alter tbe conclusion of the reading of the
correspondence, the Clerk proceeded with
the call of the counties, when a laige num
ber of bills aud resolutions were introduced
and read a first time. The hills were chiefly
amendatory ot the code and, like those in
troduced in die Senate, relating to Frced
men, defining the obligations of labor con
tracts, imposing penalties for violation of
same, defining vagrancy, providing for the
binding out of minors whose parents were
unable or neglected to provide for them, Ac.
These bills, with others of a more or less im
portant character, were referred mainly to
the Judiciary Committee. As they would
occupy much space, and as they wifi be di

A bill was introduced for tbe relief of
wounded, disabled, indigent soldiers, aud of
soldiers’ widows and orphans. The bill pro
vides that the Justices of tbe Inferior Couits
shall cause lists of such persons to be pre

draw bis warrant on the treasury for the

Several bills of a similar.character have been
introduced, showing au earnest determina

tlie relief in their power to this meritorious
deserviug class of our citizens.
A bill was introduced authorizing tbe pay
