Ia accordance with the joint resolution previ
ously adopted, the Lagialainre adjourned on Mon
.Uy tho 13th. It will ?cot ?gain-its first regu
lar session under the nsw Constitution-on th?
conting Satday, Nor. 26th.
The most importent work of tho L?gisl?ituro
. lately adjourned was the adoption of tho amend
- ment to the Constitution of tho United State.?
abolishing ?larury. This measure pa?S?fd both
Houses on tho day of adjournment, with but
. faint opposition. To discut? tho wisdom aud
patriotism of this proceeding is now useloss and
bootless. Thc nogroos oro emphatically and un
mistakably free, and the refusal of South Car
olina to adopt tho .Constitutional Amendment
would in no wiso havo uttered the cuse-excrpt
perhaps in multiplying trouble for her white in
S?nth Carolina, if wo m?teke not, makes the
2oth State that bas ratified this amendment. New
Jersey, Delaware and Kentucky reject .-d it last
winter. In the lint named State, tho eleotions
ar? just now over, and sbo bas in all probability
gone for th? Republicans ; in such a case, the
ratification of the amendment would be secured
at the next Legislature. ,
Before Uwadjonrnaont of onr Legislature, the
Negro Code" was not disposed of. Tho Com
mittee on the Judiciary, to which was referred
tho Code of. Judge WIRDLAW and Hon. ARMI
HTBAB BURY, reported, eu Nor. 4th, a Bill "To
Establish and Regulate the Domestic Relations of
port?la of Color, and te amend (be law ?B rela
tion to Paupers, Vagrancy and Bastardy." This
Bill reoeirad its first reading oa the same day,
?nd was farther considered, wo bollero, before
tho ?Ul? of the Bttsjion ; but, as we said above,
nothing concerning it was disposed of. The said
Bill has been somewbst altered fri m tho Bill re
ported by Judge WARDLAW and Hun. Mr. BURT,
but the main featured of the iatter hare len pre
ferred. Important parts of this Bill (Judge
W.'a and Mr. B's) will be found elsewhere in oar
issue ef to-day.
No ?doutions for raoancies in the Judiciary-of
which there aro several-took placo during tho

Wo know not why the Legislature adjourned
instead of continuing at work until the Sith, a?
was at first proposed sad designed. Perhaps be
eause of sumo denbt as to whether or not. the
Acts of the Special Session would bare the loree
of law without the sanction of the G ?remo r, as
now roqnired by the n?w Constitutien.
The session lately adjourned wos rery harmo

More Devilish Incendiarism.
Last week, we recounted the serious los; sus
tained by Gent M. C. M. HATOIOHD in tho dc
.traction of his Barn, Stable and Carriage House
by fir?. This week, we br.ro te tell a tate of in
eoadiarism more terrible still. On Tuesday night,
the 14th inst, the Barn, Stable and Carriage
House of ROBT. J. BBILBR, Esq., another resident
of the ricinity of Hamburg, wero totally con
sumed by firo. AU those were under one aad tho
same r ? if; and the building ./as, without a doubt?
tho largest and finest of the kind in Edgefield
District Happening Uti at night, tho fire was
discorerod only when it bud become impossible
to tare anything. Nothing whatever could be
rescued from the flames. We understand that
Mr. Br ri. EU'S entire crop of ercry kiad was de
stroyed; and it was a Very large and valuable
erop. Nine horses and eight mules, most of thom
fine animals, perished tn the flames. Mr. BUTT.BR
had been engaged for some time previous to this
disaster, in tbe holding business, and the number
.f, wagons and other rehicles under his shads
wa? large. These were all burned-Including
handsome carriage and buggy-harness, andere
rything appertaining. Mr. BUTLBR'S losses by
this fire are estimated at $15,000-fearful and ir
reparable In these times. A negro man, found
asleep in a house hard hy the seene of conflagra
tion, .ind inspected of being the incendiary, has
been brought to' our town sad lodged in Jail.
This negro was formerly a flare of Wv. SRROULI,,
E<q., of Abbeville; he disclaim*, we understand,
all knowledge of the origin of the fire. The
matter has not yet been fully investigated. Tbc
perpetrators ef these fiendish deeds, if the deeds
)>e proven upon them, should bo hanged without
delay; without process of law, and without bene
fit of elergy. Their summary execution woald
not only bo jortice, bit also mercy;-mercy te

with any assurance of safety. As Christmas ap
