[Reported specially for the Savannah Dally Herald.] Mb. Spejlkeb : The biU reported by a majority of the Special Com- inittee, though better thar^ no bill at ail, does not meet tha demands of the times. I propose to offer s series of resolutions at the close of these remarkn, and ask ttiat they, with the bill, be referred to the Committee on Finance, that a bill may be perfected embodying the suggestions of both. I rise, sir, an advocate of no common cause. Liber ty was its foundation—heroism and patriotism have consecrated it. I speak in' behalf of the soldiers and widows and orphans of soldiers of the State of Geor gia who are in absolute want. Georgia soldiers re sponded promptly to the unanimous call of Georgia, and by their deeds of self-sacrifice and devotion have illustrated the brightest pages in Georgia history. We owe them a debt of gratitude which we never can re- pay; we owe the disabled soldier in absolute want im mediate relief; we owe the widow of the deceased soi- di** in absolute want sustenance; we owe the children of both classes maintenance now aud the means of an education when we are better able to appropriate money for that purpose. Shall we in a spirit of cold- hearted parsimony turn them away from our doors ? Shell we say to these children who are holding up their tiny hands in many portions of the State and asking us for bread, in the language of a representa tive of Texas mahy years ago. “Though your fathers served the State in life, though he fell amid the ranks of those men whose namea history shall delight to •hronicle and nations to honor; though the credit and honor of Georgia are concerned in taking care of your childhood and watching over your youth, in providing for your happiness and respectability, yet for all this we will suffer you to grow up in uncultured wildness, in baneful ignorance, perchance in the foeted atmos phere of vioe, rather than make an appropriation to enable you to live now and render yourselves capable of occupying that respectable, nay, enviable position in life hereafter to which you are in a peculiar degree entitled by all the thrilling circumstances of your situ ations." All Georgia has left her of the late contest is a glo rious history and an unsullied honor. This should not be now disfigured by such ingratitude. Tt is stated of Napoleon that on an occasion when an officer whom he loved was wounded, and from the narrowness of the defile in which the conflict rsged, was in danger of being crushed to death by the ieet of contending friends and foes, while the emperor looked on with deep anxiety for his fate, a female, an humble follower of the army, with a babe in one arm pressed through the melee to the wounded man, and passing her other arm around him, conveyed him to a place of comparative safety near the emperor; but just as she turned away from the object of her benevo lent aud daring undertaking, a ball struck her in the breast and she fell dead at the feet of Napoleon. The emperor taking the motherless babe in his arms called a grenadier, and with that felicity of conception and gracefulness of expression that has immortalized him in history and so endeared him to his soldiery said, “Bear this child to the rear, guard it carefully, and see that it is well attended, for henceforth it is the child of the Empire.” If the genius of Georgia could be personified here to-day representatives and speak to you, her words would be ‘ Guard the children of my illustrious dead and disabled soldiers carefully, see that they are well attended, for henceforth they are the children of the State." It has always impressed me, sir, as one of the most pleasing manifestations of human nature, that in all ages and in all countries it has been customary to oommemorste the deeds of illustrious men and illus trious events; that painting, poetry and sculpture have been brought into requisition to perpetuate the msmory^f great achievements and keep alive in the hearts of the young a veneration for the distinguished dead, and a love of country. But few years will elapse before marble cannot be found white enough on which to inscribe Georgia's inperishable roll of honor. The most exquisite touches of the painter cannot exagge rate on glowing canvas the battle scenes through which they have passed, and a greater than Themis- todes will be required to recount the glories that clus ter around the memories of those who surpassed be cause they so often repeated the valor of Greeks at Ma rathon. Shall we who knew them and associated with them so intimately in life—who live among the dis abled soldiers and the widows and orphans of the de ceased soldiers, turn away the indigent with a cold- hearted parsimony when they and their husbands and fathers are such cherished objects for history ? If I felt that a sentiment so ignoble animated my breast to-day I would fear that the reproachful shades of Cobb, Bartow, Bemmes and that long catalogue of illustrious dead who baptized a cause that Georgia then held dear with their blood would haunt me in my dreams this night. They shall never be turned away by my vote as long Georgia has means to distri bute. I have hoard it suggested that this is an unpro- pitious time to move in this matter, as we should avoid anything to excite the jealousy of the North; that they believe that our soldiers fought in an unjust and an unholy war, and that defeat lost them any title to support from the public. The United States sol diers will be provided lor, and generations yet unborn of the whole people of the United States Will contri bute to the bounty. The Georgia soldier and his rep resentatives who are in absolute want have no place to look except to then- dtute who called him into tue held; and I do not believe that there is a ma^n mimoub soldier of tho United States army, nor a philanthro pist on earth, who, if he could fill your seats to-day, with all his prejudices upon nun um wuulu support this bill. I sometimes imagine that I see a gleam of hope in the future of our country. It is when the soldiers of the north shall head a party at the north and lead it ou to victory ; they will then be prepared by reason of having shared common dangers, common sufferings and common hardships—Which begets a common sympathy among brave men though once enemies— offer the hand of fellowship to the soldiers of the South and when tendered there may be a snaking oi nanus by those battle browned veterans on both sides over the graves of their fallen comrades, and under the banner of a grand national reunion* pabtt. They wdi take this Government from the hands of radicals and factionists hi both sections and carry it onward to higher and wider circles of glory and greatness. Mr. Bussell then proceeded to argue that the whole ques tion was purely and simply a matter of finance ; that if the State could not r&se the money tne argmucm was exhausted. He knew of but three ways to raise tne money already called for by the State, which would amount to near two millions of dollars, before the ses sion closed without any appropriation for the purposes indicated by this bill. First, by taxation; se&md, by loans ; third, by sell ing the property of the State. He showed conclusive ly by a formidable'array of statistics that taxation or loans at this time was ruinous policy for the State, and that an amount equal to the net income of the State Road under public supervision for twenty years, could be made in a few months by having it for that time. He advocated the sale of the road as the best policy both to met the demands of the country at this time, as well as on principles of public policy for all time. He waa a State aid man and believed the State had done a noble work in developing a lovely section of country. But he thought that a State as a general rule should not manage railroads or become banker; that when a road is completed it should be sold out, and in ordinary times the mofley applied to other public enterprises, and in such times as the present should be so applied as to relieve the people of taxation until they begin to recover their faded fortunes; that con solidating power in the hands of the executive was bad policy. He referred not to the present nor the past; but in republics alone demagogues could flourish, and patronage was their stepping-stone, to power. Large public works Uke the State road, on which there were at least seven hundred employees, and each employer had their numerous friends, l/iigbt be used in the future by party cliques and combinations to perpetuate bad men in office and corrupt the people. Jefterson s idea of a simple government and not a magnificent one was the true one; that same natural historian had stated that but two classes of animals could attain the height of the Egyptian pyramids—the eagle and the serpent. So in the politics; but two classes of men can attain the summit of political greatness—the dema gogue and the statesman. The demagogue appro priately compared to the serpent contorting its flexible body into on hundred shapes in winding its slimy way through the crevices and cavities oi the monu ment until Its summit is attained, when hanging from its lofty height it hisses at nobler men below. The statesman compared to the eagle rising on expanded wing and with a swoop of its broad pinions proudiy perching there. Take from the demagogue patronage and you take away his power. Let the State follow its legitimate business of making wise laws and leave its citizens to plant, bank and run railroads. Private enterprise is more sagacious and economical than public supervi sion. Sough he would aid in developing the State, when the particular work is done he would let indi viduals buy it and manage it. By selling the State Road at this time ten or twelve million of dollars could be obtained for the treasury; not only so,but the Road itself would be a subject of taxation to the. State for all time. It never was estimated at more than seven millions in gold before the war and probably will not sell for more in gold hereafter. The National curren cy though far below the specie bsoxs would answer the State as well to pay its debts now as gold, because, if the debt is delayed it must be paid in gold. We are already called upon to raise two millions of dollars this session to pay the part of the debt due and inter est, and to repair the State load and for current ex penses. If we send our agent into the market in the present unsettled state of the country, we will sell our bonds at about seventy-live cents In the dollar In National currency. Theee bonds would bear a rate of interest much greater than necessary when the credit of the State is restored and could not be retued sooner than tn average of twenty year*. The State owed two and ahalf million of dollars besides the two million reci ted; this she could bow pay and save the difference "between National currency and gold. These financial operations would save nearly as much for the State in a few months as the next twenty years’ profits of the road will amount to in its present dilapidated condi tion. If sold the people could be entirely relieved of taxation for two or three years except for county pur poses and a bountiful fond set asidefor the objects con templated in ths bin. He advocated an educational fund reserved for the poor of the State, which might be ap plied hereafter to a system of free schools. But if the State road is not sold no good reason can be produced for not leasing it tor twenty years, as he had shown nearly the profits for that time In Its present condition could be realized in a few months by obtaining money aud paying the debts outside of appropriations for the objects of tills bill. Wo have not done justice to the argument of Mr. R. on the financial policy, but indicated the outline. In conclusion, he offered a set of resolution! which he moved to refer with the bill before the Honse to SAVANNAH, GEORGIA, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 7. 1866- the Finance Committee, objecting to the feature in the bill which lelt It to the grand Juries to recom mend a tax lor the purpose. He said that in most of the counties no recommendation at all wetfld be made, and aa the beneficiaries were morextumerous in some counties than iu others, and atThe grand juries did not call the soldier into the field, but (lie whole State, that the Slate should see that all fared alike. IN GENERAL. —The President on the 2d Inst, ordered warrants to be issued for the pardon of three hundred North Carolinian*. —Wendell Phillip* delivered a lecture in Spring- field, Mu*., on the 31st nit., on the labor reform ques tion, in which he advocated the eight hour movement. He said that he expected to live to see such a progress mads in machinery that four hours will accomplish the work of eight under present conditions. —Pittsburg is well entitled to the name of the Blr mingham of America. It has no leas than fifty glaas- makmg establishments, which produced $12,000,000 worth hut year. In the iron trade the amount of manufacture is immense. The value of its coal trade is valued at $3,000,000, while its oil trade and manu facture is put at $25,000,000. —A man brought up before the Mayor of Charleston the other day for stealing a pair of boots, plead in ex tenuation, that “they didn’t fit." —The pugilist, Aaron Jones, informs the public through the advertising columns of the Charleston papers, that having been challenged by “one Henry Van Winkle, although it is well known in England as well aa the United States that since his fight with the gallant Tom Sayers ,now deceased, it was his intention to retire forever from the prize-ring; but from the many boasting and gasconadings of the above and others that they are able to whip him, he has been induced to alter hie mind. He will fight the said Henry Van Winkle tor any sum, from five hundred dollars or upwards, at auy time or place that may be agreed upon." —United States Commissioner Osborn, of New York, has pronounced a decision in which he declares that Robert Martin, who is charged with having been con cerned in the rebel attempt to burn New York in No vember, 1364, shall be beld for trial, on tha ground that he gave aid and comfort to the rebellion. —The Oritfin Star understands that at a called Court for the purpose of trying Clark and hia companions in crime, for robbing Col.

The sheriff attempted to put some of them in irons, when they at tacked him with brickbats. A guard of the 48th Ohio volunteer infantry was then called upon to put the negr oes down, and the latter attacked them violently With bricks and other missies. The ringleader ot the negroes seized a sergeant’s gun and attempted to knock his brains out with a stone, when the eergeant shot him dead. Two other negroes were wounded. After a severe struggle all the prisoners were secured aud order waa once more restored. —The Washington correspondent of the Philadel phia Ledger says: “The news from South Carolina has caused both surprise aud pleasure. Her delegation to Congress. I am told, will be backed vigorously by the President, no matter whether they can take the oath or not, aud so will the Representatives of the other States, when their Legislatures rally to the call of the Executive, as the Palmetto has done.” C.V.H CRAIN AND s, MMl SSI ON jM EReH ANT, 133 Bay Street, Savannah.

Da-vis and Family. We find in the Milledgeville papers of this week the following appeal from Gov. Jenkins, representing the uuiies oi that city. We cheerfully yield to the plan proposed, and hope the ladies of Chatham county, and indeed every county in the State, will forthwith or ganize an association, and commeuce the good werk: "The ladies of MUledgeviile and vicinity have formed au association, having for its object the raising of s fund for the purpose of securing to Mrs. Jefferson Davie and her children a permanent provision. “Tho plan proposed is, that each lady in Georgia, willing to promote the object, pay to the Ordinary of the county of her residence one dollar; that he be requested to receive the same and forward the stun total, with a list of the contributors, to John Jones, £sq., treasurer ot the State, at MilledgeviUe, by ex press or other sate conveyance, when, in hie opinion, contributions from his county shall have ceased; and that the aaaociatiou, so soon as they have reason to believe that all collections made have been received by Mr. Jones, with his assistance, take measures to place the aggregate in tbs hands of Mrs. Davis. “ u is not proposed to make auy exciting appeal ou a subject, the mere mention of which will arouse the lively interest of oar noble women.

(.'has. J. Jenkins.” There are gratifying signs, says the National Intelli gencer of the 25th, ihat careful second thoughts' are getting some foothold in Congress. The remarks of Mr. Fessenden were on the whole in most praisewor thy contrast with the violent utterances of many whose zeal, if honestly entertained, very far outruns practical wisdom and sagacity. We hope sincerely with Mr. Feseenden, that the party in power may do what is right "at the earliest possible day.” The excellent concluding remark of Mr. Fessenden is reported aa follows; “In conclusion, Mr. Fessenden said he desired a full restoration of the Union as rapidly, as possible. He was opposed to the imposition upon any people dc- sighned to form a part of the Government of degrading conditions of any kind. He would not degrade the South in any way.” Sewabd and Santa Anna.—A St. Thomas corres pondeut writes that Mr. Seward and the Mexican chief had had an interview, during which the former as sured the latter that the United States would never tolerate an empire on the ruins of republicanism in Mexico.
