iHVIii.LKDGEVii.LF, Jan. 24, 185 G.
Sf.nW.—The Bill appropriating money to
the Georgia Military Institute, defeated yes
terday, was reconsidered and referred to a
committee to day.
A Bill codifying the whole of the statutory
provisions, and remodelling and changing .our
lows on the subject of Attachments, and
Garnishments, was taken up to-day in the Se
nate, discussed, amended and passed. It is a
beneficial enactment, and by its simplifying,
what has heretofore been a difficult branch of
our legal system, will be received by the peo
ple of the State with approbation. It is
entirely too long, having about fifty-six sec
tions, for publication in your paper, else I
would send it. 1 will hereafter condense its
provisions for the informat ion of your readers.
In the afternoon the Bill creating anew
Circuit from Clinch, Ware, Charlton, Camden,
Glynn, Wayne, and other counties, was taken
Dr. Screven presented three memorials
against the proposed new Judicial Circut, from
citizens of Wayne County, and moved that
they be received and read
On the consideration of the Bill he moved
to amend the first section by striking out the
counties of Wayne, Glinn, and Camden, for
the reason that the people of the first named
county, had petitioned against the Bill and
the Grand Juries of the two latter, had made
presentments in opposition. lie remarked
that he had neither interest in, nor feeling on
the subject—he had voted for the Bill when
it was first considered by the Senate before
the recess, believeing the new Circuit proper
and necessary, but since then the counties
which he proposed to strike out had expressed
their views by petition and presentment, and
he made the motion in order that the sense of
the Senate might be fairly tested upon the
justice of their opposition to tin’s measure.
Dr. Serevens motion was lost.
By an amendment offered by Mr Atkinson,
the Governor can appoint the Judge out of
any circuit in the State, and the election for
a successor is to take place on the Ist Monday
in October 1851.
On motion of Mr. Lawton, of Dougherty.—
Montgomery and Tatnall Counties were ad
ded to the Eastern Circuit. Thus amended
the Bill passed.
The Senate then took up the Bill to form
Pataula Circuit out of Randolph, Clay and
other Counties , and after some amendments
it was passed.
The Brunswick Circuit will be composed of
the following Counties : Clinch, Ware, Coffee
Appling, Wayne, Camden, Glvnu and Charl
No other business Was before the Senate.
Mr. Stephens and Mr. Zohicolfer.
Horace Greeley, in a telegraphic despatch
to his paper, alluding to the same discussion,
“Mr. Zollicoffer rather crowded Mr Ste
phens in debate to-day.”
In justice to Mr. Stephens we publish the fol.
lowing account of the encounter between that
gentleman and Mr Zo'licoffor, which we find
in the Washington Star (independent) of
The Biter Tittex.— Mr Stephens proved
yesterday in the House hall, a very eo: sider
able over match for Mr. Zollicoffer, who again
essayed to place the astute Georgian on the
inquisitorial rack. Mr Zollicoffer’s point was
to prove that during the pendency of the New
Mexican government bill in 1850. Mr. Ste
phens, who now repudiates the Missouri
restriction, professed to be willing to have the
South draw the sword in its defence. Mr.
S. admits, that, as the alternative of giving
tip the whole of the territory of the North—
for which the latter contended —her did so
struggle for it; and lie met the denunciations
of his course on that occasion that fell from
his accuser’s lips, by the question whether, had
he (Mr Zollicoffer) been in Congress at the
time, would he not have stood side by side
with him (Mr. S. jin that position, which was
occupied at that time by every member from
every slaveholding State Mr. Zollicoffer,
though again and again asked for a reply to
that question, declined answering yes or no.
Mr. Stephens declared that lie had sustain
ed the extension of the Missouri compromise
on that occasion simply as an alternative,
and not because he thought it the most just
and proper thing in the premises that could
have been done by Congress. lie believed
that the Mexican law excluding slavery, was
then operative over all the territory acquired
by the treaty of Gaudalupe Hidalgo, and that
it was due to the South that Congress should
so legislate upon it as at least to open half of
it to her institutions and citizens • Hence his
support of the extension of the Missouri law
to the Pacfic ocean. But for the fact he be
lieved the Mexican law mentioned above to
be in force, of course he would not have ta
ken that ground ; his object being to remove
from much of the territory as lay south of
36 deg. 30 min. north latitude, the alledged
then existing anti-slavery restriction. He
sustains the principles of the Nebraska bill, as
he explains, because it brings back our territo
rial government system to what he believes
to be the true principles of the constitution ,
which make it obligatory upon the General
Government to protect slave property in the
United States territories co-equally with any
other property whatever, until at proper time,
in forming a State government, the inhabitants
of a territory may decide, in a proper way,
whether the institution of slavery shall there
after (iu the new State) exist among them.
His exposition of his present views, and of his
former course upon this exciting and intricate
subject, was one of the clearest and most for
cible legislative efforts we ever listened to ;
and it fell with great force, indeed, on the
minds of a very large and attentive audience.
He completely demolished the positions of Mr.
Zollicoffer ; exposing their weakness as well
as that gentleman’s entire want of identity
with the interests of the South in the course
of opposition to the opponents of the Republi
can party, he has chosen as his plan of battle
in the present contest. We can have no
doubt, however, that, after his passage nt
arms with Mr. S., yestarday, Mr. Zollicoffer
will soon come to realize that he is simply
strengthening the hands of those who are
aiming to strangle the rights cf Tennessee
among those of the rest of the slaveholding
Mr. Gibson’s Resolutions.
Resolved , That while we deplore the exhibi
tion of disorder in the failure of the House of
Representatives to organise, that disorganiza
tion is the legitimate result of the hostili.y to
the Government imbeded in the heart of anti
Resolved , That the members of the House of
Representatives who have firmly adhered to
the support of William A Richardson for
Speaker, have shown thereby their determina
tion to maintain the principle of equality among
the States, that Congress has no power to legis
late slavery into any State or Territory, uoi to
exclude it therefrom, but to leave the people
thereof perfectly free to form and regulate
their domestic inssittttions in their own way.
subject only to the Constitution of the United
Resolved, That while we should regard
Ihe election of an Abolition member to the
Speakership in the House of Representatives,
the greatest public calamity, it is the sense of
this General Assembly that no compromise
should, or ought to be made by the friends of
the Kansas Nebraska act with the enemies of
that bill ; and we cordially approve their mani
fest intention to promote no member to the
Speaker’s Chair, wl;o does not approve the
principles in that act.
Resolved, That in this juncture of imminent
peril to the institutions of these United States,
it is fit and meet that all who accord the just
rights of all the States alike in the enjoyment
of the common territory in the Union, should
forego former political differences, and gather
as a band of bretiiern around the common
heritage of America,[the Constitution,] and
thereby evince to the world the capacity of the
people of these United States to establish
justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide
for the common defence, promote the general
welfaie, and secure the blessings of Liberty to
ourselves and our posterity.
Resolved , That President Pierce deserves the
gratitude of the Nation for his masterly defence
of Constitutional Liberty, so ably set forth in
his late message : and his bold manifestation
of the truth of history in delineating the ag
gressions of the North and the forbearance of
the South upon the subject of slavery, richly
entitle him to the highest commendation of
every true patriot,
Resolved, 1 hat the General Assembly ap
prove the construction given to the Clayton
and Buhvef Treat}’ by President Pierce, and
that the position lie lias assumed upon that
subject ought to be maintained at “all hazards.”
Resolved, i hut this Geneaal Assembly here
by declare their opinion that the present posi
tion of Franklin Pierce 1o the great measures
before the country, commend him to the Nation
as the candidate for the next Presidency.

Daguerreotype Sketches of Members
of t3ie Georgia Legislature.
Still further to the left of the Speaker, and
on the aisle leading to the Committee Room,
you may observe a man, rather under medium
size, bright-blue eyes, brown hair, watching
with assiduous attention the current of legisla
tion. Pe is recognised as the Chairman of
the Committee on the state of the Republic,
and a leading member from the Cherokee
Mr. CROOK, OF CHATTOOGA.
Ilis style of speaking is more forcible than
ornate, and more convincing than polished,
and yet there is an earnestness arid sincerity
in his manner that evidences the frankness
and candor of his nature, and usually give
him influence and weight in the measures lie
advocates. He has had to struggle with the
difficulties ever incident to the waste of early
mental cultivation, but his present position
before his section of the State and in the
Legislature exhibit an energy and industry
that will over-rule all obstacles and demand
success. II eis very justly regarded as the
leading member from Cherokee Georgia, and
one who, if his life is spared, will without
doubt, be advanced by popular confidence to
higher honors. He is the author of several,
important measures, among them I may men
tion the proposition “To Lease the State
Road”—a bill which,on thorough examination,
is entitled to and will receive (in my opinion)
the approval of the Legislature.
The Democratic National Conven
In pursuance to a call regularly made, the
“Democratic National Committee,” consisting
of one from each State, appointed by the
Democratic Convention of 1852, to
“promote thc*pmocratic cause,” and “desig
nate the tiinc[of holding the next convention,”
met at the National Hotel, in the city of
Washington, at 12, nr, on the Bth day of
January, 1856, and, with entire unanimity—
Resolved, That the Democratic National
Convention of 1856 meet in the city of Cincin
nati, at 12 o’clock, m , on the first Monday of
Ihe National Convention of 1852 adopted
the following resolution as to the number of
delegates to be chosen :
“ Resolved, That, in constituting further
national conventions of the democratic party,
in order to secure the respective rights of the
States to their relative representation in such
conventio s, each State shall be entitled to
twice t.c number of delegates that it has
votes in the electoral college and no more ;
and that the Democratic National Committee,
in making arrangements for the next National
Convention, provide suck number of seats
therein for each State, and secure the same
to the delegates elect.”
It is requested, with a view to the proper
arrangement of seats of members, that the
delegates from the sevoral States to the next
National Convention forward to lion. A. P.
Edgerton, Hicksville, Ohio, chairman of the
committee of arrangements their respective
names and.offices ; and the democratic papers
throughout the United States are requested
to copy this call, and the proceedings of the
Democratic National Committee.
By order : ROBT. McLANE,
Mr Banks’ Ignorance of Law, History
Mr. Banks, the Black republican candidate for
Speaker,in reply to interrogatories as to his opinions
says: ‘Property in man,which the universal law of
the world condemned, and which was property on
ly when held under the local laws of certain sec
tions of the country,” Arc.
Now, property in man is acknowledged ar.d se
cured by the laws of every country in the world.—
and always has been acknowledged and secured.—
In Masachusetts a man has property iu his wife’s
labor, and in her person, and if she escapes may
recapture and detain her. lie has also property
in his children and apprentices, often valuable
property too, and may recover them by legal pro
cess, if necessary, without, fear of a mob. Thou
sands of sailors go on whaling voyages for at least
three years, they are badly treated sla res, can be
recovered if they escape,and whipped for escaping.
If Mr. Banks alludes to hereditary domestic slave
ry, in that, too,he isgroosely in error. Nine-tenths
of the world recognize, approve and enforce it —un-
til very recently, all the worlds did so.
The Mormon Hegira.
Under this head the New York Times records
the arrival in that city., direct from Liverpool, of
346 Mormon emigrants, en route for the city of the
plains. Their special creed is summed up as fol.
That “it is impossible for a man with a single
wife to increase and multiply, to the dividing of
bodies as habitations for the many souls flitting in
the air, and therefore it is the duty of a man to
take as many ribs as lie can support, that he may
father as many children of the faithful as the Lord
shall grant him.”
While on the ocean, the time was divided into
parts for the accommodation of all ; they messed
in parties, and spent much time in prayer, and the
reading of Joe Smith’s fantasy, the “Book of
Mormon.” So exclusive were they in their habits,
that even during sickness, they would not allow
the ship’s physician to attend them, and on one oc
casion, a young man had fallen down the hold, they
would on no account suffer the interference of a
surgeon, but themselves ministered to him in his
sickness, his chief physic being “a full meed of
prayer and singing,”
The temporal services of each day were under
the superintendence of the officers above named ;
the latter, or spiritual affairs, were conducted by
the Elder, whose name is Charles A. Foster. He
is a man of slim build, and rather tall, with all
the appearance of a Jersey Blue. We learn that
lie was a native of Watertown, Jefferson county,
X. Y., and that he left the United States about
three years since for the proselytizing of foreigners.
Ilis labors were confined to the vicinity of Liver
pool, and his success in inducing these to come to
this country has had the effect of closing the meet
ing-house of the sect at that place, lie has five
HowaCiiii.eno can Die.—A convicted cul
prit, named Selmdo, was executed at Sonora, Cal
ifornia. He addressed the spectators in Spanish,
as follows :
‘lie said if he had been an American,he would not
have been molested, and lie advised all Spaniards,
whenever they met a man with a white skin and
fair hair, to put a knife into him up to the hilt.—
He complained much of injustice, but he would
now show the people how a Cliileno could die. He
insisted upon having a woman brought upon th
scaffold to play the harp for him to dance his way
out of the world, otherwise he would die unhappy.
In conclusion, he said if any one present desired to
send word or money to their friends where he was
going, he was just the man to take it.”
This painful incident is instructive. How many
are shuffling their way off the scaffold of Time as
thoughtless, as illy prepared as the poor Spaniard,
Some would dissipate thoughts of death and ap
prehensions of eternity, by clutching with firm
grasp their “old, and pursuing with greater dili
gence their accustomed business. Others would
drown such awakened thoughts and fears in the
cup of dissipation. While another class would
divert their minds trom the gloomy future by
scenes of beauty, and the harmony of sweet
sounds. W. W. E.
Mrs. Partington’s Last.
“You see none of the squalor here, ma’am,” said
the agent, us Mrs Partington was picking her way
through the intricacy of the Amoskeag Mills, with
benevolence on her foce and spectacles on her nose,
looking at the pretty and neat looking operatives.
“You see none of the squalor here that has been re
presented.” She Smiled. “But,” said sue, at the
top of her lungs, like one at the top of a ladder,
endeavoring to overcome the noise of the looms,
“they all have to be squallers, 1 should think, in
order to have a conscientiousness of what they are
saying to each other.” The agent said, “I mean
their wretchedness, ma’am.” She comprehended.
“Oil,” replied she, with reflection, like sunrise on a
a lake beaming on her brow, “but wretchedness
don’t come from no condition. It’s all in ourselves
aider all. It isn’t in the nature of sich as these to
be miserable, and so wretchedness can’t come in.—
Ain’t they sometimes lateral in the morning ?”
The agent seemed as puzzled as the doctor was to
know how the milk came in the coconut and could
not answer. “I mean,” screamed she, as if she
was scolding him, “do they never come late in the
morning?” He kindly explained ; “Well,” said
she, and there was great depth in the well, “this
factory is the beat* rmost ! such order and neat
ness ; and the dear souls looked as contented as if
they were making shirts and trbuses, or cleaning
the house at home wittt a pack of young ones that
was around ’em, and a cross husband.” A cry
from Ike arrested her, as if it were a warrant,
whose finger had got hit by a shuttle, which he
said had hopped right up and struck him, and he
didn’t put his finger in the shuttle box, at all, not
he ; and he knew nothing of the thread which was
tied to Mrs. Partington’s reticule, not he, the other
end of which was miles away in the interior of a
bobbin ; and he knew nothing, not he, of the
Hakes of cotton that dotted like show patches the;
agent’s coat ! But didn’t the lady that harnelßed
the web laugh, when Ike drolly asket her if it was
kind in harness and would stand without tying !

New York, Nov. 20, 152.
Knowing from experience the valuable qualities of Dr
McLanc's Vermifuge and Liver Pills, i have for sometime
back considered it my duty, and made it my business, to
make those articles known wherever I went among my
friends. A short time ago I became acquainted with the
case of a young girl, who seemed to he troubled with worms
and liver complaint at the same time, and had been suffer,
ing for some two months. Through my persuasion she pur.
chased one bottle of Dr. McLaue’s Vermifuge, and one bn X
of LivctPills, which she took according to directions. The
result wfs, she passed a large quantity of worms,and thinks
that one'box more of the Pills will restore her to perfect
health. Her name and residence can be learned by calling
on E. L- Theall, Druggist, corner of Itutgcr and Monroe
