COLUMBUS, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER ‘23, 1858.
Special Order—ln the Senate.
To-day, by appointment, the Senate will con
sider the bill to strikeout so much of the 11th
Section of the 4th art. of the Constitution as related
to the importation of slaves. We hope the bill
will pass, not because we are in favor of reopen
ing the African slave trade, (it is impossible that
any action of our Legislature can have that ef
fect) but because it would be a public declaration
to the world, by this common wealth, that the slave
trade is not immoral. The only effect of allowing
the clause to remain, now that the question has been
mooted, would be to create the impression that
Georgia discredits the morality of slavery. Let it
Excitement In Mobile.
Mobile, Nov. 20.—This city was in a state of
great excitement, yesterday, on account of the de
tention of the Nicaragua emigrants, so called. A
portion of the recruits, about 400 in number, sur
rounded Julius Hesse and demanded immediate
transportation, or the money which had been
paid for their passage. Deputy Collector, Gen.
Smith, interposed and stated that he was confident
of receiving instructions trom W ashington on Sat

We learn from the Daily Federal Union that
this distinguished Georgian was to address the
Democratic party, in the Hall of the House of
Representatives, last night. The announcement
excited in us the desire to be present, and we en
vied our friends in Milledgeville, for the pleasure
of listening to that polished gentleman, finished
orator and accomplished scholar. Mr. Jackson is

Death of Col. Samuel S. Sibley.
The Savannah papers announce the death, in
that city on the 18th inst,, of Col. Samuel S. Sib
ley, who, for a long time, has been connected with
the press of Georgia and Florida.
Van Marcus gives notice that he will
closo his doors at 10, A. M., on thanksgiving day.
This is a move in the right direction, and we com
mend it for imitation to our citizens generally.
Hon. John Forsyth, late 3/inister to
Mexico, is on a visit to New Orleans, and stopping
for a day or two at the St. Charles Hotel.
Mr. Forsyth, immediately after returning to
Mobile, will proceed to Washington, whither h e has
been summoned in order to confer with the Gov
ernment on Mexican affairs, in regard to which his
experience of Mexicans and knowledge of Mexico
will be of invaluable service.— X. 0. Picayune.
J #9ET'The London Times, speaking of the wretch
ed condition of Mexico, says that there is no rea
son why England should oppose the ambitious de
signs of the government at Washington. It con
siders that the establishment of any government
of law and order in Mexico would be a gain. It
also ridicules the Spanish Expedition as farcical,
and contends that every gun fired on Mexican
territory is fired to the ultimate profit of the great
Anglo-Saxon Northern confederacy.

That one man in every eight in Massachusetts
is a shoemaker. In Lynn. 5,000 persons are em

Thursday next has been appointed by the .Chief
Fxecutive of the State, as a day of Thanksgiving
and prayer to Almighty God for the mercies whieh
He has continued unto us, and the blessings which
He has granted unto us through the year that is
past. Should we not pause and ask ourselves for
how much we have to be thankful to the Giver of ‘
all good ? Most abundantly has His mercy and !
bounty been poured forth toward us. Asa com
munity, we have enjoyed, in a greater measure
than ever before, the blessings of health—pros
perity has smiled upon all the branches of our
business—the seasons have been propitious and
the harvests abundant. The cause of Religion
has made a great stride in our midst—the power
of Gospel truth has been felt amongst us during
the present year, as was never known here be
fore. Oh! how many Christian hearts have been
made glad this year, by the harvest of souls, saved
by the grace of God,* from eternal death ? Who
does not see the goodness and mercy of Provi
dence in it all ? On Thursday the churches of
our city will be open for worship. Let us then,
of every grade—Professions, Merchants, Editors,
Clerks, Mechanics, Laborers, all of every class—■
rich and poor, unite together on the common
level of the Sanctuary aud worship at the altar
of the Living God. Let us cease, if only for one
hour, from the toil and struggle arid care of busi
ness, and go up with humble and grateful hearts
and pour forth our thanks aud praise to Him,
who has been so mindful of us, aud implore the
continuance of His love and protection over us.

We are permitted to make the following ex
tract from a letter written by our old friend, Maj.
Ragan, to a connexion in this State.
Fort Vancower, W, T.
The war is closed, and all apprehensions of
danger from Indians are now removed, on any
route my duty calls me travel; the Indians have
had the most awful scare of any poor wretches I
ever saw in my life; this thing of the Bostons
having (Sharp’s Carbines and Rifles) that kill
men at four to six hundred yards, is something to
them they cannot understand, and they now pray
to them only to spare them; besides, killing all
their horses and destroying their houses and pro
visions, was a blow they never dreamed of. Ex
tensive preparations are making to furnish quar
ters here this winter, for the large additional
forces, and many officers will be compelled to go
into camp and the arsenal for quarters. The
scenery in the Garrison, is picturesque, beautiful,
baffling discription. Since the rains and sun have
brought out vegetation, and clothed in verdur the
campus, the plain and the mountain-side, the
scenery in perspective changes, and presents new
lights, shades, figures and beauties every hour in
the day; the effect is wonderful, sublime, beauti
ful, and if this place was only in Georgia or in
some other white settlements, what a paradise it
would be; the tall grass was mown down for hay
and now the clover covers the whole parade, is in
full bloom, but there are no bees gathering
honey. IV ho ever saw a clover field and no bees in
it,before? it is like having money and no chance
to spend it, or a good dinner without a desert,
who’d care for such a thing ?
The remains of Capt. Taylor and Lieut Gaston,
have been recovered, and will be brought iu for in
terment, and probably sent home to their friends,
also those of Capt, White, the husband of your
friend a*d traveling companion to and from

Milledgeville, Nor. 19th 1858.
Messrs. Editors :
The Supreme Court hills will bo up in both
Houses of the General Assembly next week.—
There are many legislators here, w T ho have been
prejudiced against the Court and the Judges from
an erroneous statement of facts. I find that there
is less feeling against the Judges than heretofore
and since the appearance of Mr. John A. Jones’
letter, in which the position of Judge Benning is
so fully vindicated, there has been quite a re-ac
tion in public sentiment. The question of State
aid to Railroads has not been discussed, since the
defeat of the. Brunswick Bill. An effort will be
made in the House to re-consider it. The bill in
troduced by Maj. Cook of Early County meets
with favor. It is to carry out the spirit and in
tention of the act locating the Main Trunk road.
The impression seems to be that the road, as it now
runs, will benefit Florida more than it will Geor
gia. and the million of dollars from the Georgia
State Treasury will be exhausted in developing
the resources of a sister State. A bill has passed
the House of Representatives to keep open one
third the channel of the Chattahoochee river, for
the passage of fish, from the Florida line to the
Chestete river in Hall County. Such a bill, should
it pass tho Senate, will destroy the whole water
power at Columbus. It is well guarded aud there
is no escape from its provisions. It will doubtless
be defeated in the Senate.
Hon. Henry R. Jackson, ex-Minister to Austria,
is present in Milledgeville and was invited to-day
to a seat in the Senate. He will doubtless address I
the Members of the Legislature before leaving tho j

Accident to Gen. Twiggs. —The San Antonio
(Texas) Herald states that Gen. Twiggs had a
narrow escape of bis life on the 9th inst. He was
standing on tho street, in conversation with some
gentlemen, when a musket in the hands of a Mex

discharged, the ball striking the General on the

The draught water of the chartered steamers

ers, cannot float in less than eleven feet, and the
question “how can they serve us ?” is daily asked,
but seldom answered. Even divested of her coal,
the Westernport will draw ten feet. When talked

The Richmond South has an article in favor
of adopting in our navy the rank of admiral.—
It says :
It is objected that the introduction of the rank
of admiral into the naval service of the United
States will be an innovation upon the simplicity of
our republican forms. The same argument was
ineffectually employed against the title of lieuten
ant-general in the army; and we do not see why
it should have greater weight iu the present in
On foreign stations the commanders of our
squadrons are thrown into association with admi
rals in the service of other Governments. Salutes
must be given and received, visits made and re
turned, and other professional courtesies inter
changed. But the American commodore is sub
jected to mortification by the inferiority of
his title, while his rank in fact is substantial
ly equivalent. If he admits his subordina
nation, he must allow precedence to officers iu the
service of the pettiest powers, and endure other
indignities equally galling to his spirit aud dero
gatory to the dignity of his country. Ihe asserts
his equality, he is inevitably involved in a dis
agreeable controversy with the foreign officer who
| denies his pretension. This thing has repeatedly
| bfltyYWUVrfs occasionally *ctrawn mto tlie
| difficulty. We have witnessed with shame a cring
| ing subserviency on the part of an American com
modore to the superior claim of a British admiral.
We have beheld with pride the brave resistance
of another comm.-d ,re to the same pretension on
the part of a French officer.
It is easy to prevent these unpleasant occurren
i ces. Let the . ank and title of our naval service
be conformed to the rank and title of foreign servi
ces. Let our officers be elevated to a professional
equality with those whom they rival in gallantry
and devotion.— The States,
The French Slave Trade.
The Paris correspondent of the London Post
believes he may assert positively that the French
government has resolved to put a stop to the im
! portation of “free negroes” iuto.the French colon
ies—indeed he says, the plau had been abandon
ed before the capture of the Charles Georges ; and
“France, having, as she now considers, defended
the honor of her flag, is willing to take the slave
trade question again into serious consideration as
a principle, and in conjunction with England, en
deavor to prevent traffic in African slaves, by
i finding other means of supplying labor to colon
| ies where only certain races of the human family
! can work and live.”
On the other hand, the Paris correspondent of
j the New York Commercial Advertiser writes :
“This affair will fortunately hasten the nego
tiation already under wav on the subject of the
African emigration system and the slave trade.
The French cannot and will not abandon the emi
gration system, because they have officially de
clared it just, humane and inoffensive to States or
policy ; but they may be induced to give guaran
tees for its proper conduct, which will be satisfac
tory to the protesting parties. There is no doubt
whatever that, [in the organization of its system,
the French government guarded every point
which might become liable to the criticisms of oth
er nations; or that the government in good faith
believes its system to be as innocent as it claims
to be: but it may be subject to abuses, and against
these abuses it will be required to provide ade
Dates from Utah to the 16th ult. say that Gen.
Johnston went into winter quarters on the 12th,
and Col. Crossman, assistant-quartermaster, on
the 13th, and all the troops would go into winter
quarters in about a week. A number of dragoon
horses were straying off in the mountains and
being lost.. Heavy rains and high winds, blowing
the tents, had prevailed at Camp Floyd. Quar
termasters’ stores and provisions were plenty at
the camp, and no fears of short rations during
the winter were entertained.
The story which has been going the rounds of
the press stating that Dr. G. Hurt, Indian agent,
was suffering the Indian squaws to be sold as
mistresses to the officers and troops at Camp
Floyd, is utterly untrue and a gross slander on
Dr. Hurt, as well as Gen. Johnston.
The Xeio York Typographical Society—lts
Early History—lts Noted Members — Judges,
Members of Congress, Editors, Military Officers,
d'c. —The Typographical [ Society met on Satur
day evening at its rooms, 3 Chambers street. Af
ter the transaction of its ordinary business, Mr.
Charles McDevitt arose, remarking that that ev
ening closed the fortieth year of his membership,a
circumstance so unusual in regard to the members
of any society that he could not let it pass in si
lence. He spoke substantially as follows:
Forty years ago, to-night, I became a member
of the New York Typographical Society, whieh
then consisted of one hundred and twenty one
members, most of whom were present on that oc
casion. Of that number but eight are now of the
living, among whom are] Peter Force, ex-Mayor
of Washington, and Thurlow Weed, the “political
magician” of Albany. The Society |then held its
meeting in Rosevelt street, near Chatham, but
soon afterward removed to a celebrated hotel, in
Fulton street, east of Broadway, kept by Mrs.
Mitchell, the widow of a New York pilot. It was
in this house that we commenced our library,each
member bringing a few books to lay its founda
tion. [The Library now contains three or four
thousand volumes.] After remaining there, about
ten years the Society removed to the Shakspeare,
a celebrated theatricalhouse kept by Mr. Stoncall
where probably we might have remained till this
time, had not the building been pulled down to
give place to the Sun buildings. We then remo
moved to the Howard House, corner of Howard
street and Broadway: thence to No. 300 Broad
way and from thence to our present location.
It is said that printers are, as a class, reckless
and improvident. But this will not hold good in
regard to the members of the Typographical So
ciety. Many—l speak of regular members, not
honoraries. have risen to opulence andpower.One
of our members is now Chief Justice of the Su
preme Court of Pennsylvania. We have also
two ex-Mayors, two Aldermen, several ex-Alder
men, several Judges, and two Clerks of Courts,
the Comptroller of a neighboring city,](Brooklyn)
several Members of Congress and State Legisla
tures, one Bank and two Insurance Presidents,
twenty five editors of newspapers, and a large
number of employing printers in this city, as well
as in other parts of the country. Among military
men we have two Generals, many Colonels, one
Major, a dozen Captains, seven Lieutenants, be
sides a goodly number of rank and file.[Laughter.]
Aud such is Mr. Buchanan's estimation of one of
our members that he has given him the sole
charge of the Brooklyn Navy its ships,
stores, big guns and little ones.
In the course of his membership he who now
has the pleasure of addressing you has made over
three hundred visits to sick members, has set up
thirty one nights with sick and dying members,
has attended the funerals of sixty one ‘members,
and has been present at over three thousand mee
tings of the Society.
At the close of his remarks, Mr. McDevitt was
much applauded, and was requested by vote to
prepare, with a view to its publication, a state
ment of the interesting facts to which he had re
ferred.—X. Y. Evening Post.
Judge Taney. —lt gives us great pleasure to
see that the venerable Chief Justice of the United
States is discharging, with renewed vigor, the im
portant duties of his station in this city. He has
been actively engaged, for the past fortnight, in
the hearing of Appeals is Admiralty, prior to re*
euming, in December, the labors of the Supreme j
Bench. The Appeal docket, which contained ma- ‘
ny heavy causes, has been entirely disposed of, i
the last being, at this moment, upon final hear- j
ing. No one who appreciates judicial ability and
fidelity as they deserve, can fail to be gratified at
the prospect of continued usefulness, which the
improved health of this eminent Magistrate holds
out to the country.— Balt. Exchange.
Explosion of a Metallic Coffin.
A few years have served to bring into extensive
use for burial purposes the now common metallic
cases or eoffins, especially wherever it is desirable
or necessary to delay the interment. When first
introduced it was the practice to exhaust the air
in these cases after the body had been put in, to
secure them fully, as it was said, against change
by contract with the atmosphere. For various
reasons this practice has fallen into disuse, the
only precautions now taken being to completely
cool the remains before sealing up the case. From
some neglect in this latter respect, a circumstance
took place not long ago, which, originating here,
is worth relating. The case, containing an adult,
who had suddenly deceased while apparently in
good health, was sealed up to be sent for inter
ment to a neighboring State. The conveyance
for half a day’s ride was by railroad, and then by
wagon for thirty miles. The day was warm and
the road rough, and much motion was doubtless
given to the remains. The persons in charge
stopped for a brief rest at a tavern, and were iu
the house when they, as well as all in the vicini
ty, were startled by a very loud report, and it was
found the burial case had, by a rapid generation
of gas, exploded with much violence, entirely
blowing out the heavy French glass face plate,
which it shattered into a thousand pieces. Noth
ing could be done but to seek a hasty interment
in the vicinity, and await the coming of cold
weather to allow the removal of the remains to
their destined place of burial. —Chicago Press

ecdote, which we find unatfnbuted to antPparti

‘Josias Winslow was one of the early governors
of the Massachusetts colony. It is said that at his
funeral the Rev. Mr. itherell, of Scituatc, pray
ed that ‘the governor’s son might be half equal to
his father ?’ The Rev. Dr. (lad Hitchcock ob
served afterward, that the ‘prayer was so very
reasonable, it might have been hoped that God
would grant it; but he did n’t !’— Knick-Knacks.
