Provisional Governor Perry's First
This terse and business-like Slate paper, tho
first and very important step taken by our Pro
visional Governor, to bring South Carolina into
correct and coastitutional relation.'' with tho Fcd
oral Union again, appears elsewhere in our paper
of to-day, and we commend it to the attentive
perusal of our rendors. The Proclamation i.
issued from Headquarters at Greenville, S. C.; is
basod on a Proclamation and instructions from
His Excellency .'.XBREW Jonssox, Trosidont of
tho United Stutcs, and is in strict conformity to
all pertinent existing national laws. aDd to the
laws of this Stato prior to its secession, which do
not conflict ia any way with the provisions in Uti*
paper now set fourth, commanded and enjoined.
It docs not differ in its geucral features from tho
Proclamations of Provisional Governors of other
Southern State?. Hut it do?s differfrom them i::
a ?pedal feature, which, to our mind, seems'tn
j promise ronny very material advantage*. Hi?
j Excellency, i.orcmor Pr.nrvr it seem?, has ruc
cceded in retaining in office all >he civil officers of
this State, who wore in offico on tho first of May
last, and requires thom from Judges and Chnn
cellors down, to at once resume and to ditrhnrgr,
tilt further appointments be mado, tba full func
tions of their respective offices. Our Governor
by this step. hits certainly achieved nnd secured
for us a great desideratum in the saving of time.
Ey it tho .v.W?: machinery of Staic Government
begins to rc"vc at once. By it too, the wheel of
rseonsirnciion commences at once to revolve, and
will bo greatly quickoneoVon to its vtmott veloci
ty ; and shove all, and beyond all, by it also we
hope, wc will so much tho sooner bo lifted out of
tho slough of our present stagnant and profitless
condition, into one of uninterrupted prosperity
and happiness. Altogether, wo think tho com
! mcucemcnt of Governor PKBRY'S rule in our
SltUc. ii naught, but a bright and an encouraging
augury that be will soon placo the Slate itself
and her people at least in a condition far letter
thau that which thc untoward events of thc last
four years and more have plunged them. A
Convention to alter, amend and remodel the
present State Constitution, or tc : ako a new ono,
is ordered by Governor PURRY to convene in the
city of Columbia on tho 13th day of next month.
Election? for delegates to thia Convention nnder
o'.tl regulations are also ordered by the Governor
on thc first Monday in next month. Tho qualifi
cations of Voters, as will be seen by referring to
thc Proclamation, are tho Eame as heretofore, with
the exception only, of what is now additionally
prescribed. That the people of our State will
unite heart and head and hand, in aiding our
energetic and able Chief Magistrate to properly
and rapidly carry out the duties of bis high nnd
responsible office, we cannot for a moment doubt.

Another Heavy Confidence Swindle.
Wo yesterday published tho ; articulais of
?J. ?^?'j? confidence game-one of tho hcav
j ?t ever played in this city-and we now
r.reseni t'-.e faeis in connection with andi hf r
extet ?ive i?? 'ration, of a similar class, which
incurred yesterday morning, and which pre
??mts nu exhibit of most astoundingly cool
i ni:: a dc-J icc and rascality, on the part of the
accomplished sharper who figured in ii as the
operator. This individual, in an elegant at
tire, and of most gentlemanly manner and
appearance, made application at the Harnett
j House, yesterday morning, for two conuec
tiug rooms-one lor himself and wife and the
other for his daughter. Ile made an entry
on the register of Mr. and Mrs. Chartrous
and daughter, of St. Louis, stating" that his
companions, with the baggage, v.'ould arrive
on the next ttain. As there was nothi?g
whatever about his appearance or manner
to awaken suspicion, the rooms were prompt
ly placed at his service. Shortly after the
same individual might have been seen enter-i
ing the jewe'ry store of Wm. Wilson McGraw,
on Fourth street- Ile slated that bo wished
to make somcpurchases of jewelry, diamonds,
&c, for his wife,., who was at the Burnett
House. She had desired to accompany bim,
but had sprained her ankle, while trying lo
I inter a hack; the horses had started sudden
ly, and thrown her to the ground; it was a
piece of wretched carelessness on tho part of
\ thc driver: he wondered if these public car
j riages were owned by any one responsible
person, ? e.
j ' The fellow's neat attire, gentlemanly ap
peal ance, and perfectly al homo m an uer,
j.ha?, as m:iy well bc s up posed, un immediate
,' elR?ct upon (he courteous jeweler, who itn
i mediately consentid to send one of his sales
. m*rn tu wo hotel, with a Wlu-iblfe assrirtmeir
; of jewelry. The salesman, with bis box ?l'
; valuables, found thc pretended Cbjartrous in
Xo. 110. Mr. C. .stated that his wife war, in
' the next room, Ko. 111. wk re a physician
wa;dressing her it.juries, und that, if no ob
I jection was made, lie would take them in for
her inspijciion. The salesman consen^ed^ to
have a few articles tu ken ?nat a :iine. Ile
heard thc attentive husband ask. "how do
you like these, my dear; do you upt think
j these diamond car rings are charming V- Set.,
!.thcn tli'-rc was a ;sile,JCe und the salesman
waited ?br I ho ia-tidbits wife's decision aa
to choice, li "vailed h?ug and si ill tho btv?
?silly inclined husband returned not; he ap
plied his ear to tho key hole, but detected
uo sound, neiiiier of endearing expressions of
thank-, of dissatisfaction, or of pain as of
physical suffering : bo applied his c\o to tho
af.'P.vuid key bole and Uottghlbut blank wall*
and unoccupied chairs and beds met hi-s anx
iotis.gax. ': not even the glider of those mag
nificent diamond eardrops,the value of which
WHS near unto a thousand dollars, cast their
brilliant scintillations athwart his longing
optics. Ile could endure tire suspense no
longer. Cautiously he opened the door and
timidly, with a terrible foreboding, passed
into the mysterious chamber. It was silent,
unoccupied, deserted, and an open door,
leading inio the hall, told the story.--Cincin
