Three votes were given against these resolu
Several branches e-f the Constitution were
considered and adopted, involving unimpor
twjt changes in the old Coiistiiuiion excep:
the creation of the office of Lieutenant Gov
ernor. The Convention will probably Com
plete its work this week.
MONTGOMERY, November 22, p. m.-The
article cf the Constitution o:i thc Judiciary,
as reported, provides .that the Governor shall
appoint all judges of the-several Courts.
Solicitors and Chancellors to bo confirmed by
the Senate. Magistrates gun11 be appointed
by thc Governor, but the Legislature may
change the manner of appointing them. The
Chancellors shall appoint registers, and the
Judges shad appoint the clerks of the severa1
courts. Tuc term of all these officers is to
bc six years.
The appointment of judicial officers is in
order to prevent elections being controlled-by
colored voters. The black delega:es strongly
oppose this policy.
An ordinance . was introduced to assess a
tax of twenty cents a gallon on liquors to pay
thc expenses of the Convention. Referred.
An ordinance was introduced and referred
providing that the loan of two hundred and
twenty live thousand dollars to the Alabama
and Tennessee Railroad, which was repaid to
the Stato in Confederate currency during the
war, is still undischarged and said road i
b ?und to pay the sum now in cood money.
MONTGOMERY, November 22. p." m.-At the
evening session of the Convention an amend
ment to an article on the Legislative Depart
ment was offered, to empower the Lcgislature
at thc next session to go further in disfran
chising persons who participated in the rebel

Construction, was tabled on a test vote of
firty-thrcc to thirty seven.
MONTGOMERY, November 23. p. m.-The
Convention passed an Urditiar.co imposing an
aldi.ional tax of ten per centutn'on the taxes

this State for thc purpose of paying the ex
panses of tiie Convention, to b? assessed and
collected during the tax year of ISGS.
The franchise article provides that those
who shall be convicted of treason shad no

that all persons who came within the twenty
thousand dollar clause of President Johnson'.
amnesty proclamation, and against whom pro
cc-edings were instituted in thc State's Dis
trict Court, who, on being pardoned by the
President, had to appear in Court and enter
the plea of pardon and guilty, are disfran
cbised by the new Constitution. If this ii
correct, thirty or foi tv thousand whites an
disfranchised at one blow in this Sta-e.
At the evening session of the Convcntior
an amendment to the bill of rights was of
fered, that common carriers shall not make
a iy discrimination ou account of color bc
t veen persons travcliic-; on public conveyan
ces, which caused great excitement. S .vcral
black delegates delivered inflammatory ha
rangue-'; demanding entire social equality,
and the right to ride iu sleeping cars, ?c.
Two whites favored the amendment-Griffin
and Keffer-making violent speeches. Several
whites opposed it iu 6trong speeches. After
>t heated and protracted debate the subject
was postponed till Monday.
BOTTOM RAH, ON TOP-A NEW JSDGE.
Sherriff Harris walked up into the court room
on Monday morning last, to make prepara
tions for |he holding of the County Court,
when he beheld David Taper, a copper col
ored darkey, sitting in the Judge's scat, lo ik
ing as bold and dignified asa billy-goat Mr.
Harris a?ked him what he was doing then'1,
when he replied that ho was going to hold
court-that the botton rail wa3 on top now,
and he had been selected as Jud?c of the
County Court, and was going tn see that ne
groes had justice done them. Mr. Harris or
dered him to vacate the chair, but he posi
tively refused to do so, said he was determined
to preside at this term cf the court, and defi-'d
the Sheriff or any other white man to attempt
to put him out of his seat. The SherifT again
ordered him to leave, when he picked up a
water-pitcher and told the Sheriff to stand
back. The Sheriff grabbed thc other pitcher
from tho Judge's stand, and the fight com
menced. Roth pitchers, several tumblers,
and a chair or two, were smashed info atoms
in a few moments, when Taper commenced
yelline murder and broke for the street. Ta
per is the same black rascal that had our
Mayor arrested a few weeks since. He is a
great scoundrel, and should be made to leave

From New Oriearts.
NEW OKLKANS, November 23, p. m.-The
Republican of this morning has an editorial
beaded " Who is Responsible ?:' alluding to
the suspension of removals by Gen. Mower
in orders from Washington, in which it uses
thc following language : " The day will come,
..nd perhaps it may beablooJy one, when
the loyal people of Louisiana will bold thc
authorities of this interference in the progress
of reconstruction to a strict account. The
war of the rebelliou is not yet over-the
Suies of thc South are not yet reconstructed.
The grand army of the republic, double in
numbers of the old grand army of the Poto
mac, tried soldiers with dusky faces, still love
their old profession and cherish the old mus
kets they carried so bravely on many a well
fought field. The lowly and humble have
learned their rights aud know how to fight
and, if needs be, to die for them. No power,
save that of the Almighty God, can keep thc
loyal people in the cud from achieving their
own liberty and trampling to the dust the
minions of the old anti still dominant slave
power." Thc same article calis Andrew
Johnson " That arch traitor and assassin."
The Convention met at noon to-day and
elected negroes as temporary Chairman and
Secretary until z permanent organization is
arrived at. Adjourned till Monday.
Forty-four negtocs and twenty five whites
were present iu caucus and Judge TallaforrO
seemed to be the choice for permanent Chair
man, but probably the negro members will
elect one of their own color.
It is ur.der.-tood ii was resolved in caucus
la?t night that the first step of the Conven
tion would be to declare all State offices va
cant and bil them with appointees accepta
ble to the Radical party. Recent appoint
ments by Mower, with oueor two exceptions,
ARE NECKOES ELIGIBLE TO CONWRESS.
The New.York Herald has thc following per
tinent inquiry :
"Under the famous Drod Scolt decision
the Sup-eme Court of the United States de
cided that negroes were not citizens within
the meaning of the Constitution. Whatever
the popular sentiment may be in regard to
that decision, if was never reversed, and re
maitied the Uiw of the land, at least until the
proelamation of emancipation issued by Pres
ident Lincoln, in September, ISO'.'. If that
proclamation made negroes citizens they at
tained their citizenship at that time. The
Constitution of the United States provides
that no one shall be eligible to the United
States House of Repr?sentatives until he has
been seven years a citizen, or to the United
States Senate until bc rdtall have been a cit
izen niuo years. These facts may dash thc
hopes of some of the ambitious Sambos and
(?uashees who have anticipated the honor of
representing some of thc Southern districts
in the next Congress."
It will only dash thc hopes of those aspir
ing to be Senators. The seven years of pro
bation will expire in September 1868. But
as everything is worked " outside the Consti
tution," the darkies can put ina plea of high
er law, a la Thud Stevens.-Constitutionalist.
CONVICTION AND SENTENCE or AARON LO
CAN.-Ii will l?e remembered that during the
process of registration last August, Aaron Lo
?an, a negro member of thc Board for Christ
Church Parish, caused the unlawful arrest of
Mr. J. S. Frazer, impeded the work of the

was guilty of other disorderly conduct, which
resulted in bis arrest, confinement and trial

Another of our oldest, most widely-known and

Kt?ult of the Late Protracted Meeting.
On Friday afternoon l?3t, in tho stream running

young persons, eight male, and four female. The
afternoon was fine, and a large assembly witnessed
thc beautiful and solemn rite, impressively per
formed by the Rev. LUTHER R. GWALTNET, pas

And on the Sunday following, in the Methodist
Church, by its zealous and well btlovod pa*tor,

connected themselves with that Church, having
been airca Jv baptized in infancy.
Profoundly Contemptible and Unfath
Wc mean the scrcullcd election which took
pince in our District and State on Tuesday and
Wednesday last. As regards the result at any
other box than that of tba Court Ilouie, wo can
say nothing. We have heard nothing. We have
not boon able t?> heir anything. White people
seem to drive th J affair, with loathing and coiu
tcmpt, even fron their very thoughts. At our
Villugo Box, during ILT two duvs, 1,1)94 votes
were polled : a? colored. Sot a tingle white man
in Edgtfitld forget himself !
The fallowing were the only 2..n.)idates voted
for; in fact, there wore no othtrs to vote for.
And these will, in thc coming burlesque Conven
tion, be called the Representatives from Edgcfield.
It is unnecessary to say thnt they will not rcpre
sont thc whites of Edgcfield. And it is scarcely
more necessary to say that they will not represent
thc Hacks. Neither whites nor blacks know them.
They will only represent the interests of the
lowest, wretchedest and fiercest type nf Radical
ism. Their names uro Rivers, Elliot, Bonham,
(tbroo low-country negroes) Burris (an Edgefield
negro) Wooly, Medici;, (two white men living at

Our friend BENJ. MAYS Esq., has brought us a
largo bag of most emphatically largo Turnips.
Very peculiar looking they arc-and very beauti

delicate lilac. Really they aro the prettiest things
wo have seen lately ; and the biggest things, ns we
did not seo Robinson's elephant. Wo were not

" Como down upon these Boots of COHEN'S ;" or

COHEN keeps on hand every possible variety of

goods for Ladies and Gentlemen arc ravishingly
beautiful. We assure you wo do not exaggerate.

" What isthe Ethnological Status of tl
Last week we spoke of a very rcmtirkablo pa
.phlet, lately published in Cincinnati, on the e
nological status of tho negro, designed to prc
that be is not thc descendant of Ham ; that ht
a beast; that miscegenation was the cause of I
flood, of thc destruction of the tower of Babel,
Sodam and Gomorrah, and of the Canaaniti
nations ; and that miscegenation is " the unpi
ch nable .-in" which in the nature of things, ci
not bc forgiven, but must be punished by the <
struction of those who commit it.
This pamphlet, as wo hofore rer&rked, is :
trading great attention among whites an'd L'.ac
both North and South ; and is being answered,
more than one placo in the South, so far as it ;
tempts to make th? negro "a beast" and inca]
ble of moral and religious elevation. This wei
glad to see ; for surely in this attempt to make t
negro a beast, thero is something blaspheme
inhuman, and absurd.
"Ariel," tho author of this work, asserts tl
tho ve< plo of India, China, Turkey and EgypJ
who are very far from being negroes-aro the (
scendunts of Ham; and that tho negro is a prut
tive race, older than tho white, and very far in
rier; in whih opinion, to be sure, he has be
furo*talUd by a vsry celebrated British travel
and cxploror-Sir Samuel Baker, tho discovoi
of the source of tho Nilu.
The lattor thinks that Africa gives unmistai
ble evidence^ of nevor. having been flooded, a
that its animals an'd races may, therefore,.,
older than any others upon thc earth.
However, it were vain for us to follow "Ari?
through all the scriptural and historical proofs
his position. But wo may remark that, af!
showing that tho Canaaoiti.-h nations, whose m
crable and terrible destruction has often seom
hard to Bible readers, were miscegenation's, I
whom nothing but extermination would do, t
cause nothing elso would obliterate their crin
he lays decided stress on thc fact that their ci
of iniquity was full in tho fourth genoration,"
that tho cxtcrnnl vengetinco agreed with t
ordinary laws of nature.
And, at the same time that we are shocked
any attempt to prove so fatal and horrible a thii
as the negro being a "beast,"'wi:hout soul
moral nature, yet, in view of the indisputal
moral, montai and physical inferiority of t
negro to tho white man, we think it woll cnout
that something should be written to startle tl
masses of the North, and unito them against n
gro suffrage, supremacy, oquality, and amalgam
tion. And we understand that this pamphlet
well calculated as it is for popular effect-is ha
ing a wide circulation thero.
In conclusion, it asserts that, from tho time
Abraham, who owned several hundred slave
down to the days of Washington and Jcfforso
Divine P.-oviJence " never conferred, and nev
designed to confer, any great blessing on tl
human family, but thntit always selected awhi
slave holder, or one of a white slave holding ni
tion, as tho mcdiutu by or through which thi
blessing should reach them."
It is also argued that the negro just either I
sent back to Atrien, or bo ro-cnslavod; and thi
thc formor is much the preferable alternativ
The people of tho South are exhorted to see th
finger of Providenco in passing ovents, to d
nothing to invite negro equality, to submiLto to
laws, and to bdijve that tho right will finliljHb
And another striking point in this pamphlet
one which we had forgotten until this moment-i
that " Ariel" dwells, with considerable cmphasi
upon that injunction of the law of Motes forbid
ding any one with a " flat nose" to approach th
As wc have said abovo, this argument, so fara
it attempts to make tho negro "a beast" and in
capable of moral and religious elevation, is bein,
ably answered here and there. And very lately

These gentlemen, we learn, are enterprising
men, and manufacture and repair nil kinds ol
I loa-uro Carriages, Wagons, dbe, in thc nentcsl
and most substantial manner, nnd at pricer
equally as low us those of Northern Manufacturers.
They arc homo pooplc, and do.>cr>'e tho patronage
of our citizens. We wish them succoo.
Wo copy tho above from the Laurensville Jle
rafi, and endorse it most emphatically. Thc
Carriago Manufactory of our popular and enter
prising townsmen is undoubtedly one of the first
in the country. The Vehicles turned out from
this Establishment always attract immediate atten

immediate and personal charge of this largo con
cern, is an exnert in his department ; once a year,
regularly, bc goos Northward, and looks around
carefully, and wiih an eye of taste, for all now
styles and impiovemonts in tho Carriago and
Buggy line. Doth he and our honored fellow
citiscn, Capt. LEWIS JOSHS, havo a happy faculty
for pleasing their customers, by thoir uniform
courtesy and unimpeachably honorable dealings.
Our own people, and the peoplo of our sister Dis

Anniversary of the diaries ton Mercury.
On the 19th of Nov. 1866, was issued the first
number-of the Mercury put forth after the fall of
Charleston. During thc past woek, therefore,
fell tho anniversary of our honored and popular
contemporary. When the Mercury raised its
bend from amidst tho destruction caused by in
:endir.ry fire and vandal fword, it leaped into the
breach with admirable courugo, nnd struck boldly,
right and left, in the noblo effort to bring back
South Carolina to the majestic principles which
penetrated the souls of her fathers in the early
lays of tho Republic. And with eminent and
rTell-dcscrved succoss. Wo are glad to read of
Its f rishing condition ; and bog leave to offer it

Saturday last, learning that he had voted tl
negro scalawag ticket, Tucker informed bi:
that he no longer had use for his seivices, ar
swore he would give employment to no Rad

Colquitt during the whole war, and gives ev

Maximilian, though but lec-mly execute
in Mexico, is already worshipped by a gret
portion of the nation as a god. The peopl

in face of all these things, Juarez has beet

what a Mexican election is, and how it is con

will be 317 ; absolute majority required, 159,
Revolutions never go backwar..', >.n 1 thc
present one will progress steadily, bringing
in under the Conservative banner other States,
and conftfrnrii g by increased majorities those
that have already cut adrift from Radical rule.

following States are absolutely and hopelessly
lost to the Radicals for the. next Presider tia!
contest, viz: California, Connecticut, Dela

Pennsylvania, New Yoik and Ohio. They

hardihood of action and defiance of thc Con

Southern States, so that some of them will
not undoubtedly vote for tho Conservative
candidate. Though it will take some time to
