The Genera’ t Assembly, which closed it?
prelianns'y session on Friday last, to assem-
We "'gaiu on the 15th of next month, though
perhaps not comprising so large a proportion
of the men of the State of reputation and
legislative experience, as was comprised in
the late Convention, is nevertheless a body
of marked ability and earnest patriotism.
Many of the members of both Houses are
yooug men, who haye never before held
seats in the General Assembly of the State,
but there are also many who have taken a
prominent part In the legislation of tbe State,
both previous to and since its secession from
the Union. One feature of the present body
did not fail to impress itself upon the minds
of all who observed its deliberations,
and that was tbe total absence of everything
like partisan feeling. For the first time
within our recollection we beheld a General
Assembly of the State of Georgia in which
partizan politics was unknown, and in which
demagogueism had no voice. As if the fiery
ordeal through which the State had passed
had obliterated all recollection of past politi
cal differences, and with the changes which
it wrought in the circumstances, relations and
condition of the people, had engendered new
ideas in the creation of new necessities, Sena
tors and Representatives, deeply impressed
with the responsibilities resting upon them,
addressed themselves zealously to tbe work
of renovation and reconstruction. The
session opened amid doubt and appre
hension but in comparative ignorance
of the malign influences which had
been brought to bear against the State,
tbe strong prejudice had been excited
against her people, the suspicion and distrust
that had been engendered in official quarters
At Washington the Legislature proceeded in
good faith to carry out the program of re
construction inaugurated by the Convention
an conformity to the requirements of the
Federal Government- Inthis they were tem
porarily estopped by the interdiction of the
organization of the civil government of the
State j hut though embarrassed in their Her
culean work, by the mandate from Wash
ington forbidding the inauguration of tbe Gov
ernor elect, continuing the Provisional Gov-
his official position, and withholding
the certificates of eleetfen from the members
elected to represent the State in the Federal
Congress, conscious of their own rectitude
of purpose, they did not despair, and under
the lead of that pure citizen, incorruptible
patriot and sagacious statesman whom
the people had so unanimously called to be
their Chief Executive, they calmly awaited
the prevalence of more liberal councils in
Washington, in the confident belief, that “in
due time,consistency would command confi
dence, and sincerity,like the diamond of first
water won its own recognition.”
It may be too soon to say that thia hope
has been fully realized but the bietory of the
last few days ol the session encourages us to
believe that it has not been wholly disap
pointed It is certain that a better under-
exists between tbe Federal Govern
ment and tbe General Assembly of Georgia.
Tbe inauguration of tbe Governor bus taken
place under auspices and with results which
it is to be hoped will exert a re-assuriug in
fluence on tlie Northern mind in reference to
the temper and purposes of our people,
while it will give courage and hope to the
latter; the issuing of certificates of election
to the Congressmen, elect has been left to
tbe Constitutional Governor, who has enter
ed partially, at least, upon the exercise of
tbe functions of bis offlee; ami measures
looking to the protection and government of
the freedmen, giving them access to the
Courts, and full protection in all their pro
perty aud personal rights, which, it is be
lieved, will secure the objects desired and
meet the approval of all just and reasonable
men, North and South.
The code of laws adapted to the new rela
tion between tbe whites and blacks which
lias been in preparation by a committee ap
pointed by the late Convention, bad not yet
been reported to tbe Legislature. This will
be done immediately after tbe re-assembliDg
of that body, when it, with all tbe laws and
resolutions touching that delicate subject al
ready reported, will be referred to tbe Joint
Committee on Frecdmen’s Affairs by which
it will he digested and perfected, and reported
to the General Assembly for adoption. The
perfection of this code will occupy
much of the time of the session. In
the language of Governor Jenkins, it is
in the hands of “ geptlemen equally distin
guished for ability, experience and benevo
lence and lroro what we know of them as
well as of the spirit ot the Legislature itself,
we leel confident that the code which is in
future to protect the rights of the black man
and govern him in his relation with the white
race with whom his lot has been cast, will in
its practical operation, be humane, wise,
beneficent and just, giving equal security and
safety to both races. In the inaugural of
Governor Jenkins may be found the fore
shadowing of the code to be adopted. It
may require the experience of a few years to
perfect it, but in the enlightened philan
thropy of our people, the wisdom and justice
ol out legislators, the true friends of cither
or both races have a guarantee, that to tbe
extent of human ability and torekuowlcdgo,
it will tend to promote the end desired by
all good mou—that* in their new relation
"each ( lass shall be to the other a blessing,
not a curse."

MR. SI NNER'S PROPOSED AMEND
MENTS TO THE CONBTITTTIO.V
The ibetoric&l Senator from Massachusnlls,
prompted by a desire to complete his claim
to pre-eminence, as the parliamentary advo
cate of political and social equality, hardly
awaited the announcement from the presi
ding officer of the Senate that business was
in order, before he introduced a series of
amendments to the Constitution. He could
not permit the expectaut public to remain
long in doubt as to the flaming policy which
he had digested and was prepared to urge upon
His programme, as foreshadowed in his
amendatory proposition, is both comprehen
sive and intelligible. It is based upon the
hypothesis that, though no State has any
constitutional right to secede, the Southern
States, nevertheless, by attempting to secede,
virtually put themselves out of the Union ;
and that the conquering States have tbe right
to impose fipon them conditions upon which
they may Resume their former relations to
the government of the United States. It is
assumed also, that President Johnson erred
iu allowing the Southern people to take part
in the re-organization of the State Govern
ments, and that all acts done by them may
be held null and void; and consequently cpn
gress is not bound to recognize'theState
governments which they have organized, or
to admit the Senators and Representatives
whom they have sent to congress.
Such is Mr. Sumner's theory as expounded
in his proposed amendments, which looks to
the establishment of a great central despotism
over these States until they shall be forced
to admit freedmen to all the rights of citizen
ship, aud surrender their governments into
the hands of their former slaves and the
“ loyal” whites.
His first proposition is contained in “a bill
to preserve the trial by jury, and provides
that grand juries shall consist of one half of
persons of African descent in sections where
one-sixth of the population is African, and
tbe proportion iu petit juries, where matters
relate to any injuries inflicted by a person of
African descent, and vice versa, aud preju
dice against such African race is made a
giound of challenge and exclusion from such
The proposition is without a single prece
dent in all the annals of American legislation,
and exceeds in radicalism and malignity any
thing that has ever been claimed for the co
lored race before in this country or in Eu
rope. It is far iu advance of the demand of
the right of suffrage, and cannot but be re
garded as a bold advance towards tbe recog
nition of tbe entire political and social equal
ity of the Freedmeu, a thing it was supposed
few thought possible and still fewer would
be willing to tolerate.
The second proposition prescribes anew
oath to maintain a republican form of govern
ment in States in rebellion, as follows: “I do
hereby swear that I will at all times hereafter
use my best endeavor to republi
can form of government in the State'of which
I am an inhabitant and in the Union ol the
United States, and I will at all times recog
nize tbe indissoluble unity of the Republic,
and will always discountenance aud resent
any endeavors to break away or secede from
the Union; thatT will give my influence and
vote at all times to sustain the national cre
dit; that I will always discountenance aud
resist any attempt, directly or indirectly, to re
pudiate or retract, either in any part or iu
any way, the debt which was contracted by
the United States in subduing the rebellion,
or the obligations assumed to Union soldiers;
I will always discountenance and resist auy
laws making auy distiSfction of color or race,
and always strive to maintain a State govern
ment completely loyal to the Union, where
all men shall enjoy equal protection and equal
This is the development of the intentions
of the second clause of the Constitutional
Amendment, which was simply an oblitera
tion of State rights and sovereignty, and the
substitution of Congressional supervision aud
The fifth proposition is a joint resolution,
proposing to amend the Constitution so as to
make the voters, instead of population, the
basis of representation in Congress.
We have only presented a few of tbe most
radical features of the proposed Constitu
tional Amendments, which are enough, how
ever, to enable the intelligent reader to judge
what sort of legislation will be attempted
and the kind of government the radicals are
seeking to establish.
If the proposed amendments of the Sena
tor from Massachusetts should be adopted*
a despotism more absolute and degrading
than that which would then be exercised
over the Southern people would not exist
elsewheie in the political systems of the
world. It has been justly remarked by a
Northern cotemporary that “such a consum
mation would breed revolution in Imperial
France. It would provoke convulsion even
under the iron scepter of the Russian Czar.”
Hot is to be hoped there is enough of con
servatism yet remaining with a large por
tion of the Republican members of Congress,
wbo are not controlled by hatred and fanati
cism, to foil the malignant purposes of Mr.
Sumner aud his radical supporters. We trust
the time is not far distant when a sense of
equity and a revival of patriotic sentiment
will restore to the political governments of
the South their normal rights.
Towards the present Congress are directed
the hopes and tears of our people; upon it
is fixed the attentiou of tbe whole nation,
and with it rest responsibilities greater tbau
have talleu upon any deliberative body which
has assembled on this continent since the
convention which adopted the Federal Con
stitution. To restore a broken Union, re
unite a lately divided people, heal the deep

KaastA.— Our jown draft of Got Jenkins'
able and impressive Inaugural address, with
the proceedings of the last two days of the
session -of the Legislature having Idled in
Uhii-uiission from Miilcdgeville, we were
comr»'ll<*t either to forego our desire to lay
the impoi taatdocument before our readers at
the earliest possible moment, or adopt a very
inperfect copy, hastily printed by a Macon
cotemporaiy. This we corrected from mem
ory, hut find in it several errors of our own
compositors, tome of which affecting the
sepse, we desire to correct. We do this iu the
convictioa that the inaugural of Gov. Jen
kins will produce a profound impression on
the minds of our-fpeople, if not throughout
the Union; and that it is highly proper that
bis meaning shall not be perverted or ob
scured by verbal errors.
Those who preserve the inaugural for fu
ture reading, (as no doubt most of our read
ers will), will please correct as fol
At close of the nth paragraph for ‘patent
power,’read ‘latent power.’
In tbe second line of 6th paragraph for
‘encompass as,’ read ‘encompas, us,’supply

struments continued together,’ read ‘so these
instruments construed together.’ Same par’

‘fidelity’ to the supreme law.
3th paragraph, 1 Stli line, for ‘real citi

11th paragraph, I3fh line, after ‘the war,
omit the word ‘and•’ Same paragraph, 32d
line, after ‘upheaving,' omit the word ‘iu.’
14th paragraph, 26th line, the sentence
should commence ‘Are’ our own offspring.

‘all philosophy,’ insert the words, ‘other

for ‘disposes,’ read ‘dispose.’
There are some few other typographical
errors which the intelligent reader will dis
cover and correct, but the above are the on
ly ones which alter the sense.
—General Sterling Price has forwarded
his application to be all&wed to return to
the United States, and to be pardoned.
—lt was positively asserted in Richmond
at latest advices that Gen. Butler would
take command of the Department of Vir
ginia on the Ist of January.
—Gen Steedman has announced on his
staff, Capt. Edward Moale, 19th U. S.
Infantry and Bvt. Major U. S. A. Aid-de-

S. Infantry, Asst. Inspector General.
—There are one hundred and thirty-eight
bachelors in tbe British House of Com
—A wife in San Francisco lately put in a
petition for divorce, in the court on the
ground that her husband was a “confounded
fool ” The court, who was an old bachelor,
wouldu't admit the plea because every mau
would be liable to Jhe same imputtaion who
gets married. '•
—Mr. Washburn* of Illinois, is the oldest
conservative member of the U. S. llouso (t
—Tbe Mayor of Mobile has prohibited the
railroads and steamers from “importing”
negroes into that city.
—The 4th inst. was a most remarkable day
at Baltimore—tbe atmosphere equating the
warmth of summer. At noon tbe thermo
meter exposed to the direct rays of the sun,
rose to 108 degrees.

The Drug Business. —There is Uo business
or branch of trade in which skill, know
ledge, and enterprise are more essential,
than iJAbe drug business ; nor is there auy
branch of human industry in which more
charlatanism and imposture prevail. It is
therefore to the interest of the public care
fully lo discriminate between tbe true and
the false druggist. This can easily be done
by a simple, practical application of that
rule which is as true in matters of business,
as morals “by their fruits (or results) you
shall know them.” Judged by this rule,
Helmbold is a true Druggist, and those well
known medicines known as “Helmbold's
Preparations,” are legitimate remedies. These
latter have been before tbe public promi
nently lor many years, and have been al
most universally successful: the Eatract of
Bucbu especially, has securedltbe public con
fidence. For Us appropriate diseases it is
