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." \V » have incidentally alluded to the iunu ginat address of Governor Jenkins.

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 the country. 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 juries. 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 rights. 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 legislatioh therefor. 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 1 wounds of civil war and restore the Govern "•cut to its primitive state is the momentous task it baa to perform, to meet fully thu pa triotlc expectations of the American people, *M 1r rr mpHsli U lIHMUMfilif the mem hcr» must discard all passions and prejudlcoa Irotu ihnr hrsaiu, and dUtnUs all consklera Huns of party from their councils.

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 lows : 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 ing a comma. 7th paragraph. 12th line, for ‘so these In struments continued together,’ read ‘so these instruments construed together.’ Same par’ agrapb, 33d line, for ‘spuriously,’ read ‘spe ciously.’, Bth paragraph, 7th line, for ‘identify,’ read ‘fidelity’ to the supreme law. 3th paragraph, 1 Stli line, for ‘real citi zens,' read ‘leal citizens.’ 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. Same paragraph, 35th line, for .‘identity,’ read ‘fidelity.’ Same paragraph, 44th tine, for ‘through,’ read ‘thorough.’ 16th paragraph, 14tb tine, for ‘combatable,’ .read ‘compatible.’ 2Gth paragraph, Oth tine, after 4he words ‘all philosophy,’ insert the words, ‘other than. Same paragraph, 13th tine, for ‘ex claim,’ read ‘aeclaim.’ Same paragraph, 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- Camp. Capt. Newton I. Dikeman, 16th U. S. Infantry, Asst. Inspector General. —There are one hundred and thirty-eight bachelors in tbe British House of Com mons. —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 Representatives. —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. According to a dispatch from Fortress Monroe, Mr. Davis is now enjoying good health. He has daily walks on the parapet, comfortable quarters, a genteel wardrobe, a good table, and plenty ot reading matter.— He is said to have thought the President’s message waa in general a good and wise document. . The health of Clement C. Clay is impro ving and he has subsided into seeming apatby and patient waiting for whatever may betide him. 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 wittiout a rival. The certificates to its use fulness embrace rnauy thousands of names; but tbe fact that alter the trial ol so mauy years, Helmbold's Preparations are in as great a demand as ever, or even greater, is tbe best possible proof of their legitimate merit.
