tho newspaper correspondent can Ond least to Interest

proa_lc? of tho presiding officer, the clork, the measen

attentive through all other part*, of tho session, absent
thmuKulvcs under the belief thnl the real business is
over, Lou?| talilug takes the place of oobot silence.

any member **ho may have raoro of skill than of prin
ciple eeizea the opportunity' to bavo a pet measure
jrtisued which, at any other time, would have met the
disapproval of the body. Thi*. however, was not the
caso to-day. For some roaaon, a great part of tho mem
ber- Ml present, and during portion! of tho day busl
net? was attended to with, groat earnestness. Each of
those present seemed to f?*el that tho State demanded bis
Message No. (5, of tho Provisional Governor, was re
ceived, (jiving to tho House and .Senate iiif.irui.itlou with
regard to professed ollieiul information of the Constitu
tional Auienilment conveyed to tho Governor of South,
Carolina by the Secretary of State of tho United States.
Tho communication was by telegraph, and tho not??ca
tion was dated February 2, 1H6S.
Mr. Mullius called up the resolutions which he had
offered ou Saturday, to accept tho Constitutional Amcud
iiK-t. These resolutions having boon taken up. Mr.
Mollina moved to amend them by substituting auother
set of resolutions. Mr. Eeltt then moved to amend the
amendment, by substituting a third set, accompanied
by a preamble, setting forth the interpretation given to
the nee*?id elauae of the anicudinc-nt to tho Coutititution
by the Execulivo Department.
At this stage of the proceeding?, Mr. Campbell asked
lor information with regard to the otheinl notification.
The Speaker of the House read the Message of ?. ; Pro
Mi*. Campbell then said that tho telegraphic notice
c_nnot bo olllcial, as, from the date, It takes for grouted
that he is our Governor who is now In Fort Puluskt,
while we of the United State? are acting on the tsupposi
ti??n that the act? ot the last four years were acts of usur
pation. Ho gave uoti*? of Intention to offer aeries of
resolutions In case the resolutions and amendments
were laid on tho table, to tho effect that, when the State
f'.uill be restore- t?> her place In the Union, she pledges
herself to accept the constitutional amendment.
Sir. DawkltiH said that wo had notice of the amend
ment iu the. printed Acts of Congress. He hail voted?
pr-ctkally voted?for the nwendnient when lu? accepte?!
the Constitution, and hfl would vote for it now.
Mr. Campbell said tha?, while ho would vote _>r the
amend??ant when necessary, he wishes, whim it is done,
iba*., .t shall be done without stultification.
Mr. Trcscot gavo notico thut he would offer a resolu
tion at tho proper time to refer the matter to the ap
propriate committee to report at the regular _n.
In Vha most eloquent speech that 1 bavo over heard from
his lips, an . in on_ o? the most eloquent that I have
ever heir?! from any man, hi* asked the Legislature to
act not in hot haste, but with becoming dignity, in the
mobt important matter upon Which they probably have
over been colled to decide. Ho beeo'?;?nt them so to act
that, ii their children 8honld look back with sorrow on
what the Sluto hau autlered, they would not be obliged
to look back with shame.
?lhnr speakers followed?some desiring the immcdl-.
ato -ilepUon of the resolutions, and others desiring do '
lay, for tho purposo of accepting tho amendment ill pro
par form?nil agreeing that tho amendment should be
accepted. After some debate, tho amendment of Mr.
Keilt was laid on the table, and the resolutions of Mr.
Mullii'.s taken up. On a call of tbo yens and nays, tho
resolutions retire carried?yeas 74, noya 28.
Whih'T? ese procoedlngs wore going on lu tbo lioure,
similar proceedings were taking placo In tho Senate;
and when the rosolaitionB of the Houso wore being vent
to tbo 8enato, tho Senate r?solutions wore being sent to
the House. Thoce adopted by the Senate had attached
lo them a third resolution, making declarations some
what similar to thoso which the Honse had, earlier tii
tho day, refused to oonsidor, on the ground that, If tho
act must be done, it should be dona simply. The hour
of adjournment was at band. It was too late for a Com
mittee of Cnnforen?, and it was necessary to accept one
set of resolutions or pass both over to the regular so'i
sioii. Under these circumstances, the Senate laid the
resolutions of tho House on tho table, and the Houso
concurred in thote of the Senate, which are as follows ;
Whereas, the Congress of the United Stetes, by joint
resolution, approved on the first day of February, A. D.
J865, proposed on amendment to the Constitution of tho
United States for the ratification of the Legislator?? _1
the several States, which amendment la m the follow
ing words, to wit :
"Article 13?Section 1. Neithor slavery nor Involunta
ry servitude, except as ? punishment for crime, whereof
the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist
with? tho United States, or any place subject to their
"Scction a. Congress shall have power to enforce this
article by appropriate legislation. Approved February
2, 18-." -.
Resolved, therefore, by tho Senate and House of Rep
resentatives of the General Assembly of the State of
South Carolina, In General Assembly met, and by tho
authority of tho name, That the ?for*?aid proposed
Amendment of the Constitution of the United States be
and the same is heroby accoptod, adopted and ratt?ed
by this State,
Resolved, That a certified copy of the foregoing pre
amble and resolutions bo forwarded by bis Excellency
the Provisional Governor, to the President of the United
States, and also to the Secretary of State of the United
SUtco. . . . - . ,
Resolved. That any attempt by OO-greas towards legis
lating upon the pol?ticaI status of former slaves, or their
civ il relations, would be contrary lo tho Constitution of
the United States, as it now is, or as it would bo, alterad
by the proposed amendment, In conflict with, tho policy
of Ine President declared in bis amnesty proclamation,
and with the restoration of that harmony upon which de
pends the vital Interests of the American Union.
Nothing else of any importance was douo by cither

[From the Richmond Whig, November i.\
Tbo Kew York correspondent of a Northern news

this city, fur the publication of bis "History of the Be

The President has made the important announcement
that the tri;?l of JutMaatm Davis wiU take place at an
early day. There is no divining, however, what obsta
cles may intervene, arising from tcchnlca) Informalities
of the Courts. It is said that Mr. CtUfin has given It as
hie opinion that the trial cannot legally take place In
Richmond. It may yet bo within tho range of proba
'bility that Mr. Davis will be released without a trial

bo no, give Mr. Ch?SE credit for a desire to withdraw

Tho case of Commodore Craven wan brought up on

tho Commodore pleading not guilty to all the charges

From Information received at the State Department,
from tho Unite?States Consul at Havana, it appears that
there has been a most serious outbreak at Jamaica.

baa a population of 400,000, of which there aro but
10,000 whites. The time chosen is most opportune for
tho insurgents, as there are but few English troops at
present, stationed on tho island, and the Wolverine is the
only war atearner there.

[From the Atlanta intelligenter.]
Wo had tl:o pleasure of a visit in our tnnetum, yoster
dny, from Judge O. A. Lochrane, who has JURt returned
from a Northern tour. We were pleased to fin?! the
Judge in excellont spirits, and hopeful of our early res
toration to peace and prosperity. Ho found in tho
i North, mid at Washington, groat liberality of sentiment
I lb tbe mind? ol the people, and a general disposition to
i let by-Rones be by-gones. Tho radical*, of course, he
| found bitter in their denunciations of the Administra
tion and the conciliatory policy it hail observed toward
! tho Smith. Judge Lochrane lind n long and sotlBfactory
I interview with the President, in which the present uii
fortunate condition of the country wan freely dismissed.
: Ho found the Chief Executive kuidly disposed toward
j us, and determined to (stem the current that seeks to
overwhelm this unhappy section in ruin. He think? wo
j have much to hope for at tho bauds uf Mr? Johnson,
and it become? us, ns n people, to .sustain him mid his
administration fully, nun;fully, mid with a zeal that
I knows no abatement.
The Judge speaks in the most exalted terms of President
j Johnson und of his magnanimity and Justice; ho is sat
| isfled that his sole und patriotic purpose is to restore the
i Dnion, and to establish upon a flrnicrand broader basis
tho principles of freo government in thlB land. He
throws his soul and heart into the ?piestion of pacifica-,
tlon, and c-tpects the whole flonth with unanimity to
rally around the policy of justice nnd equality among
the Stote*, which be so impartially nnil firmly main
tains, and to come up manfully to the gunrantccs of pro
tectlou and luv which the condition of tho freed men de
mands. Tho Judge speaks of the kindly sentiments of
the Northern people generally, their desire to forget the
past, and to make overy overture of friendship un?l sym
pathy to our people. They have prospered^while wo
have suffered, and now with capital they propose aiding
our fortunes, and lining us by the hand on a level with
themselves. Many capitalista have furnished means to
Southern planters'to carry on their plnututg interests,
and await the development of the future to be reimburs
ed. In fact, bo knows many instances where the libe
rality of tbe North will lio felt in its advancement of in
dustrial as well as commercial interests, and the states
manship of the country sees (he nrccssity of stimulating
our country products, and will in the halls of Congress
be felt in advocacy of leaving to our State Legislatures
the adoption of laws consistent with the Constitution,
controlling the labor of tho country by protecting eon
tracts from violation, oi:d idleness nnd vagrancy from
the eleemosynary impunity it now has-,
Ho speaks of tho gro .t growth of the- North and West,
I heir teeming population and overflowing prosperity,
nnd howlittlc injury tho war had done to them; and
stated his 1 uipresalnu of our soon beiui; made to sharo
their couddenro byitho adoption of just and liberal prin
ciples of legislal ion. The North Insists that tho freed
men shall have lo^al rights, and these wo must give with
out question. He must have protection, uu<l (his tho
law must provide. On the negro suffrage question, he
believes the Free Stales, both North and West, aro
gradually yielding to the President's policy of leaving
this matter to tho States to settle for themselves, and a
moro conservative spirit Is now prevailing and widening
day by day. He alluded to tho impression that ho had
favored this doctrine?au impression vholly erroneous;
He had never, for a moment, entertained surh an Idea,
und regrotte?! that h? had ever been charged with It.
On the whole, the Judse given us a hopeful view of the
condition of the country oud its futir?: prospects, and
believes that we will soon return to civil law, and have
tho Froodraon's Bureau anil military rule lifted from us;
ami In this opinion, not only himself hut tho best men
of the North agreed that tho ?liy Ik net far distant when
wo may be left to govern ourselves.

To tKc Executive Committee of the Jackson Statue Associa
Gr.KTi.nMEM?I beg leave to announce to you that the
east of the Colossal Equestrian Htitue of Jackson Is now
ready tor the founder, and Mr. Volck only waita for the
funds necessary to carry on the work to its completion.
I regret to Btate that, owing to circumstance? oognirabl?
to all of you, no subscriptions have been received elnoc
my last report to you, and that, owing to the terrible ami
sudden collapse of . the Confederate Government, th?
small investment In Confederate bonds has been tetall]
lost. The terms of your contract with Mr. Volck requin
the advince of $15,000 in gold now, and tbe farther sun
of $5000 when the work shall be completed. As yov
are aware, Mr. Volck is a young man of mod?r?t?
means, wholly insufficient to enable him to carry on tht
work himself, and it will be apparently unjust to bin
to expert him to hold his work for an indefinito period
Proposals have been made to him in Europe for the pur
chase of tho statue, which have been declined by Mr
Volck, from an unwillingness on his part to divert th<
statue from ita original design and purpose Ho ha
recently arrived from the Kingdom of Bavaria, for th<
solo purpose of ascertaining what arrangements, if any
can be made on your part to fulfil your contract; and h
bas oiprensed a deop anxiety that you shall not be dia
appointed. Ho is desirous that renewed efforts may b
modo by you to raise the requisite funds, and will awai
a reasonable time to see the results of thoso efforts
Widely separated from each other, I found that to con
suit with each of you, as to tho measures to.be adopted
would Involve such delay as might defeat our wish?
end hence, as your organ, I have addressed an appeal t
tho public, asking tho requisite old, and have also lud
rated that the European admirers of Jackson might a va:
themselves of this opportunity to testify their.appreclt
tlon of tho illustrious hero. I trust that this will met
your approval, and that you will lend your personal aid
each tu his own State, promptly to meet tho demanda c
