A new Proclamation by the President.
WASuINGTON, S-pt-iber 14.-It is, asserted
that another amznesty>roclamation will joon be
issued bv President Johnson. Tke manliness
with whioh the S6:4hern people hav4 submitted
to the conditions jimposed oa them by the for
tunes of war, as well as thg condition of-that
section, has decidvd the P resident on issuing an
other amnesty proclairnation, broad and generous
in"its provisions. lie knows the people of the
South, and is saislied that they will act in good
faith %ith the Federal Government. This is also
rendered necessary b,Y thi vast number O'f peti
tions for pardon, which have accumulated ;q that
extent that it would require years to examine
them. It is probable, too, that it.will have been
hastened, to soieext ent, by threats of impeach
ment by the radicals; for Andrew. Johnson,
w!'en angered, is not only obstinate, but dogma
tic, Ile hates seceSsion, but has a contempt for
The change in the policy as to abandoned
lands, out of which the agents of the Freedmen's
Bnreau expected to make fortunes, was a bonb
slich into the radical can. It was a scheme for
gigantic plunder, and so Soon as the .President
was informed of iis pracical working, he caused
to be6 issued the order which-restores property to
its lawful owners. Ther&can be no confiscation
without due procers of law. The President
stands by the Constittftion.
The radicals of the Butler-Wilson school, who
thought they could niould Andrew Johtison to
their bold, bad s:hemes, are hitter and revenge
ful over'their discomfiture. They will wage war
relentlessly on the Executive, but the people will
sust dia him in A the measures which will pro
duce complete restoration, and consequently the
DUTY OF SOUTUERN CONVENTIONS.-We endorse
the fcllowing froam the reniarks of the Natchez
C,ouricr upon the Converjion now in sessien ia
the State :
"The worl for the Convention seems simple
enongh. The very fact of the election of Dele
gates to a convention called for su.ch purpose an
avwed, is a declaration by the people that they
accept the terms offlered by tht President and
wish to resume their duties as citizens of the
United States. Compliance with these *terms
consists simply in faithfully supporting the Con
stitution and the Union, and quaranteeing free
dom to the negro. The first part of the condi
tion is complied with, or rather the evidenee of
su -h compliance is given, by each ind-vidual, in
taking the amnesty oath ; and the second part is
all that is*left for the Convention to fulfill. This
is short and simple-there is nothing in it that
ought to occupy the Convention more than two
days from the day of its organixa-tioh. Therf
4eed be no review of our late past. Every man
remembers enough. - No good can come from
decl,1mations and speeches about "negro suf
Trage," or anything relating to the future of the
negro, except the rmther of freedom. All d.
cussion rebuing to aught else but Vhe work in
hand can n.ot,.by any possibility, accomplish any
thing but positih harm." -
"1e that hath knowledge spareth his words.'
SYNATOR SVM nt's SPEEcn.-The Rupublican
State Convention of Massachusetts, which assem
bled yesterday in W6rcestbr, selected Mr, Sena
tor Svmmer as its presiding officer. He acepted
the opportunity to deliver a speech which, if less
that the rebellion is only disarmed, and not crush
ed ; that sl:derv is only dead in name, and not
in fact, and urges the cecessity of guarantees for
the fre-edmen and the creditors of the nation. Mr
Sammnrer contend4 that t'he dovernment has the
powcr, to'esta)lishm tlfese guarantees, and that
Congress has pler.a y powers over the whole
subject. IIe assas that the, emancipation of
the gegro is t~ eomnilete, and that "equality. js
the-master pr-incipatl of the system ;" or, in plainer
terms, that a n.egso is as go6d as a white man, if,
indeed, -not better, as the honorable Senator
aver-s, that hie won't trust the wihite men of the
South and is will:ng to trust the negro. On
these propositions he professes his determination
to fight thc battle out. This is, doubtless, the
programmne of.his faction, which is preparing to
renew their ass-tults on the Cons\itution and true
interest-s of the notion. His speech ismutoro im
portant in this se'nse than as .an intellectual ef

1st. The marriage of all parties liring together
as husband and wife at the time of obtaining

will be acknowledged as legal and binding.

Toort%he entirely Withdrtwn frong the Sor.th
It is.understood in Washington, that it is con
templlated by the President to entirely withdran
the troops from the South, in a short time, lear
ing the States lately in rebellion to' re-organiza
tion on the basis of civil government, precisel2
as they stood befcre the late war,, with- the ex
cptionm of sla.er/. This policy is' said to hav4
arisen through the good sense of the leadin;
Southern men themelves, in accepting the pre
sent position of afnirs, as disclosed in the inter
view between President Johnson and a consider
able deputation of their leading men, at th4
White -House, the other day. Thus, the lati
slave St ates wiil have hardly a soldier left amo6r
theni, save sach as may b'e required- to. garrisor
the several forts; and.those, as iti the Northert:
States, will~be r&tained in active service only for

DESTITUTION IN CIARLESTON.-The-Pbiladel
phia Inquirer$ublishes the following extract
from a private letter receivd in that city
from a Sister of Charity, dated Charleston,
South Carolina, July 7: -
Many hundreds of the citizens who havs
been accustomed to all the luxuries of life
have been comopelled to sue -for and lve on
Government rations. Even- these have beaa
stopped. Could You but* see these delicate
ladies in houses void of furniture, reduced to
the wash-tub, the cook pot, your heart would
bleed ; still more when you reflect they havo
no means of procuiing the ba're necessaries
of life. A few who were in business before
and during the war are making attempts to
rcgain a footing, but the planting population
around Charleston are destitute ofeverything.
God alone knows the full- tide of misery
which has set in on $ese pe'ple. We see '
part of it but not.all. S-ill, if we were inade
the medium of alsistance to themia, we could
reach the bulk. We invite the co-operation
of your citizens in this work for the relief of
these people, who will inevitably die of star
vafion if not assisted. This is a cause of hu
manity, therefore persons of all opinion.may
unite in i.
I hope this appeal will not be in vain, and
that you will be able to forward, ere long,
proofs of the good will of your city foi suffe
ing wherever fouud.H

Letter from Gen. Joseph L Johnson.
MECKLINGBURG CoUMir, VA.,
July 17, 1865,
You ask my "riews of the future course
it,ure Ite Ureats.o us ab." Othe case is
so plain that very little can be said or written
upon it.- We of the South referred thf que
Lion at issue between us and the United States
to the arbitrament of the sword. Theelecision
.has been made-and it is against us. We
gnust acquiesce in that decision, accept it as .- --
firnal, and recognize that Virginia is again one
of the United States. Our duties and interests
coigido. We shall consQlt the one and -per
form the other lif doing all we can to .pro
mote the welfare of .ur .neighbors and kin
dred, and to r-estore the prosperity of -the
[country. We should at once commence the*
Idudies of peaceful citizens by entering iip.on
some useful pursuit, qualifying ourselves to
vote if possible-and at the polls our votes - -
should be cast for conservative men-men
wh~o understand asnf will maintain the ifter
eits of Virginia as onego'fthe United States.
*This is the course which I kave recommeb-.
I-ded to all those with whom I have conversed
on the subject, and is is that which I have
adopted for mwyself'as far as practicable. V!erg
truly yours, J. E. JOHNSTON.
EIGnT HouR SrsTx.-The question of- ar
king eigbt hours a day's. work, is engaging,
considlerable attention just how in vKrious
Lquarters. Last winter the:subject was con
sidered by a join~t committee of the Massachu
setts Legislature, and the result was a -unan
'imnous report in favor of the eight- hour rule.
The Legislature authorized Goyernor Andrew
to appoint a commission to pursue and itives
tigate the subject further, and report .to the
ntLgislature. it is claimed by the friends -
0f the mo3vement that the increased skill ef
labor, and die Inventdon'of so many labor-sat
ing machines, gives ground for elaimin;a re
duction of the number of hours to begi*n t4o
daily toil, and the corresponding incregse of
-trime to be devoted to regregtion 4.pd dac~

-the fall of buildings, in America,.during the pe
riod between the cdose-of the war for the~-Union
and the 31st ultimDo-just five months. These
figures, supposng the whole 'year to present a.
similar record ; would give a total of seven thou
