ANTI-DUELLING. . At a meeting of a number of ihe citi zens held at the Representative Hall in Milledgeville, on Monday evening In-t, for the purpose of forming a Society for the suppression of Duelling; the Hon. Thomas Stocks was called to the Chair, and A. Hull, Esq. was appointed Sccr’y. The following gentlemen were appoin ted a committee to prepare and report a constitution for the Society, viz.—Col. Rockwell, Rev. Mr. Sherwood, Mr. Cam nk Dr. Harl nw, Cen. Keatherston. Col. .l ines, Dr. Boykin. General Mitchell, I)r. Drown and Mr. Hud. The meeting then adjourned until Tues day eyeing at 7 o'clock Tuesday Evening. 7 o'clock'. The meeting convened pursuant to ad jouinment. Col. Rockwell from the com mittee appointed to draft and report a con stitution, <sv. reported a preamble and constitution for the gnvei nment of tire So ciety, which was read, and for the present ordered to lie on the table. On motion of Col Rockwell, the follow ing resolution was unanimou-ly Adopted: Resolved, That his Excellency the Go vernor-be respectfully invited to lake up on himself the Presidency of this Society and that a committee be appointed to wait uoon him and procure his assent, and no tify him of the time and place of the next meeting. The Chairman appointed on this com mittee, Messrs. Hudson, Harlow, Kulb, Rockwell and Boykin. Toe following Report accompanied the draft of the constitution. . The committee who were appointed to prepare and report a const lotion for the! government of the Society, have perform ed that ilutv. They regret that upon a subject of so much importance as that committed to th'jpir charge, they have had so little light- It is their belief, however, than when the constitution herewith submitted shall have been revised by the Society, it will an-i awer every purpose of carrying into ef fect the laudable objects of the institution. I It will be perceived that the committee have contemplated the establishment of Societies auxiliary to this, in the different counties of the State; the utility of which your committee cannot suppose will be doubted. And they earnestly hope that; the view 6l of the member sos this Society may not be disappointed—but that their! objects will diffuse themselves through the State ami produce a commensurate influ ence, that will give a tone to public opin ion and banish this bloody custom from our State. Experience has taught us that municip ol regulations are inadequate to reclaim the evils of duelling there alrea dy exist too many fatal examples of the futility of civil enactments, to need any j argument to enforce a conviction of its truth. To strike at the root of the evil, it is necessary’that a united effort should he mado to give such a tone to public opinion on the subject, as will frown down the i practice and render it odious to be engag ed in a duel—when this desirable object ’ shall be attained, then and not until then, will the practice cease. There is no plan, in the view of your committee, so effective as the one suggested, of erecting auxiliary ; Societies in every part of the State for its suppression. The members of these So* cieties wifi feel themselves particularly called upon tube active in the good cause —-Those of them who minister at the holy altar, will make it the theme of their dis course, and the denunciations of the Pul pit will not be heard with indifference, or made in vain—. Those also oho conduct Public Presses will exclude frotn their co lumns notices of ‘affairs of honor’, and then while we inculcate the noblest sen- j timents of the Romans, which decreed a crown to him who should save the life of a fallen citizen, we shall teach the lawless among us to respect the majesty of public opinion. Extract from a Letter dated , Mobile, Nov. 13th, 1328. •It may be a matter of some interest to know the result of the election in Louis- ! •aha—Jackson has obtained another vic tory at New Orleans. He has a majority ofBG votes in the city, and as far as heard from in other parts of the State, he is a bout 1100 ahead, there is no doubt but lie will get Louisiana by a majority of 1500 to 2000. In this state he will get ten to one— and I think of 64 western votes, he will get CL’ * . GEORGIA cj-SOUTH CAROLINA. The following important rommunica tion has been transmitted to the Logida ture by the Governor: Executive Drpirtmrnt. 1 Nirvember 14, 18 38. J By an art of the General Assembly of the £ftfli December, 1823. entitled ‘An art to ratify the proposed convert tion between the States of South Ca Polina and Georgia, relative to the Savannah and Tugalo rivers,* it is provided that the convention shall he obligatory, and not be altered with out the consent of both states, as soon as South Carolina should pass an art; adopting it. An act has been passed j in South Carolina, ratifying the rqn* j vention, on the condition, that the; consent of Congress should be first ob tained. Having learned from a Mes sage of Governor Taylor of South Carolina, that an application to Con gress had h p en proposed jn the win ter of 1826, but not made because the delegation from Georgia would*no.t u nite with the delegation from South* Carolina, 1 instructed, at the last Ses sion. our members to unite in an ap* plication for that purpose. The de legation from South Carolina, hav ing no instructions in 1827, declined acting. I should have considered it my du ty to renetv those instructions the en suing session of Congress, hut for in formation just received from the Gv- i ernor of South Carolina. On that in-j formation, I deem it proper to make, no attempt to procure, a ratification of the convention, unless it should be required by the General Assembly, from a belief that it cannot now he desired by’ South Carolina to have the convention ratified, and that if it was, it would he unwise on oui part to fetter ourselves by its obligations, as South Carolina has on foot a pro ject which will prevent any expepdi* ture of money on the most, important part of the Savannah River, that be low Augusta. All the papers relative to the sub ject are herewith laid before you. One remark is suggested by facts de veloped by them, and known from other sources. A project is in the course of execution to divert, by a rail road from Hamburg to Charles ton; the whole trade of this State (a hove Augusta) from Savannah to Charleston. The right of South Ca rolina to improve all its resources, and to draw from a neighbouring state a portion of its trade, is not de nied, nor the exercise of that right a | cause of just complaint* hut in this, scheme S. Carolina is to have the ben-1 efit of the Engineers of the United I States, the skill and science under j i the command of the Union, and the j money of the General Government,! our money, is to be used for. the pur-! pose of aiding in the execution ot a scheme which, if successful, will seri- . ously injure, if not destroy our most flourishing seaport. It. is in vain that the constitution of the United States prohibits a prVference to he given by any regulation of commerce nr reve nue to the ports of one State, over those of another, if the r sources of j the Union can he directly applied to anj’ extent for the benefit of Charles ton, to the ruin of Savannah. That the project to divert the com merce of Georgia from the port .of Georgia, is visionary; that nature has already indicati and the channel through which that commerce must pass, and ihrtt the effort now making to coun teract the decree of Proridrnrc will fail, | am perfectly satisfied: hut it is not on this account the less our diPy jto mark this if parturc from the I path of the constitution, this led or disregard of a plain corwtitii*! tioual inhibition. JOHN FORSYTH. From the New- York Advocate. Mr. M onr >f. — lt appears by an ad dress which the citizens of Albemarle (Vwvj hav£ made to the public, ‘hat ttve final blow has been struck upon the pi o pertyol Air. Monroe, and that in conse quence, houseless and pennyless, he has left that n- ighborhood and we suppose the sure, We hate for some time under stood that this result was inevitable, and that lu> would be obliged to leave a place which has been his residence for fifty yens. It is not therefore improbable that he has or may become a resident ot New York, where also resides one ot his daughters, married to Samuel L. Gover nor, Esq. The neighbors of Monroe in Albemarle, evince a generous fneudslup and sympathy tor .their venerable friend, and huve not seen without efforts to arrest it, the calamity which has separated Mr. Monroe from them. They have made a strong appeal to the citizens ot that sec tion, as well as our country generally, accompanied with hfinute and interesting facts, showing the pecuniary sacrifice* made by Mr. Monroe, during half a centu ry of public service at home and abroad. It is yet the object and the hope of the citizens of Albeuiade, that Legislative aid will be extended in a case fraught with so much personal hardship, not m the way ol a grant or pension, but as a re in ion for losses actually sustained by Mr. Monroe, while in the public em ploy. Os the validity ofj these claims up on the Government, or iu relation to them in any wise, we are not prepared to say any thing, other than that it must be the wish of every gene.ous heart, to see them examined promptly! and interpreted most liberally and kindly. Venerating as we do all that devoted race ot revolution ary patriot*, of whom Mr. Monroe is a mong the last, we are anxious that ainul | the general prosperity and the universal happiness dttt'u-ed by their labors, their last days should be their best d-ys. As New-Yoi kers too, cannot but be affec ted with th£ spectacle of an aged patriot pcaving,Jus native, and beloved state, and coming uniting us for bread. ‘An oid man “broken with, the storms of Slate , has come to lay his bones among you!* i | PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. NevV-Youk, Nov. 17. ELE CTJON RETURNS. It is almost needless to give any fur ther returns of the Presidential Election. General Jackson s majority outstrips auy thing in history.
