Mr. Thornton also offered the following: A bill to lie entitled., an Act to alter apd amend chapter fourth, article first, part sec ond, title second of tbe code ol Georgia, in relation to Indentured Servants aud Appren tices. Be it enacted by the Senate aud House of Representatives, That section 1840 of the, above title and chapter be amended by ißrik- j iug out all utter the word “provided,” and ! inserting iu lieu thereof tlio gjords, “the con- j tract ia iu writing aud acknowledged -before 1 a Justice ot the Peace.” Be it farther enacted, That section 1842 be amended by striking out the word "Court” wherever it occurs, aud iuscniug the words “Justice of the Peace, ’ and alter the word j “annulled” add the following: Which decision ! may be reviewed by certiorari, as iu other ■cases.

Out* hundred and till) copies were ordered to be printed for the use of the Senate. Mr. Owens ol the Ist, introduced a memo- 1 rial from the Presidents ol the bauas of Sa vauiian, asking to be relieved from the pains and penalties meurred by a suspension ol , specie payments. The memorial was read aud interred to a select committee,which con sists of Messrs. Owens, Casey, V. H. Smith, (Jresbum aud Butler. Mr. O. P. Beall, of the 11th introduced a bill to suspend the coilectiou of debts until the let of January, 1808. The Seuate then adjourned until 3 o'clock P.*M. XHV.UNOON SESSION. The Scuatu re assembled st the hour des igualed in the moliou lo adjourn. Some tune was spent iu reading bills the second lime. Mr. O.

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 per annum. 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 by resolution. 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 | grated and adapted to tbe Freedman's Code, ! now being perfected by tbe Commissioner I lor that purpose by tbe Convention, 1 have I thought it useless to give their titles, by [ which very lil tie knowledge of their pro ! visions would be conveyed. In (he perfec tion ot this code and the adaptation of the j existing statutes to the new order of things | much of tbe time oi the present session will ibe occupied. Iu the disposition manifested ! byri.be members who have introduced bills, as well as iu tbe high characier of tbe gentle men to whom has been assigned the tusk of. framing the laws that are to govern and pro tect the freedman in his new relation to (tie whites, we have assurance that these laws will be humaue, just aud equitable between the parties. 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 pared aud forwarded, properly certified, to tbe Comptroller Geueral of tbe Stale, by tbe Ist of March next, when the Governor will draw bis warrant on the treasury for the money to be paid lo said indigeut, disabled soldiers, widows aud orpbuus, who will be entitled to receive the sum of SSO auuuailv. Several bills of a similar.character have been introduced, showing au earnest determina tion on the part of tbe Legislature to give all tlie relief in their power to this meritorious deserviug class of our citizens. A bill was introduced authorizing tbe pay ment of Ordinaries lor administering the am nesty oalb. The bill provides that these Or diuaries who have charged less than thirty cents for administering the oath shall be eu titled to receive full that amount. Those who have charged that amount or more to receive nothing.

House took a recess till 3 o'clock. s AFTERNOON SESSION. . The afteruoou session was mostly consum ed in tlie secoud reading ol' bills iutroducud, on Wednesday. Among the new bills introduced was one by Mr. Barnes, of Richmond, to repeal the ISectious ot tbe Code imposing penalties fir the failure of Banks to redeem their issues In coin. Mr. Tucker, of Merriwetber, introduced a bill to regulate the rate* of freight and travel on the railroads of this State. Tbe Legislature will doubtless act upon tbe nuggestiou of the Governor elect, aud take a recess lb reassemble ou the 16lb of Jauuary. but it Is not certain at wbat time they will adjourn. Resolutions for adjourn ment were introduced ia the Senate aud House to-day—tt)e Senate resolution passing, to adjourn on the 18th iust.—the House ou an earlier day, but no action was taken There is a desire ou tbo part of many hers to prolong the present sitting until the 15th inst., wheu the Freedineu’s Code will be reported by the Commissioners, and IboUgWliltle cau be accomplished in the way of legislalieu while the Slate Is without a eonstitutioual Governor, 1 think it highly probable that the adjournment will uot take place until that day. it is still doubtlul whether tbe U.

Thz Ohartkr Ei.kotion in New York.— At tbe municipal election iu New York city, on the sth inst., Jno. T. Hoffman, tbe uouii nee of Tammany Hall, was elected Mayor by thirteen buudred majority over Marshall O Roberts, the Republican candidate. Mr. Hoffman belongs to the Democratic party, aud is a iawyqf of distinguished ability. Gree ley's candidate, Decker, and McKeon’s candi daie, Gunther, who is tbe present incumbent, receiveJ very small votes. The Herald says, wheu the Mozarters, who nominated Hecker, found there was no chaDce for their candi date, they bolted him and went over to Hoff man. Mr. O’Gorman was elected to tbe office of Corporation Couusel almost without opposi tion. Tlie Democrats elected nearly all of their candidates for Aldermen, Commissioners aud Trustees. "• There was a tredmendous excitement at Tammany Hall in tbe evening, after tbe elec tion, the cheers and hurrahs amoimtiug to something like the Democratic demonstra tions ol the palmiest days of the Wigwam.
