Holden's Proclamation in ?Sfcrth
W. W. iloldeu, Provisional Governor of
North Carolina, issues his proclamation,
d?fed at Raleigh on the 12th day of Jone,
to the people of his State, aunounciug in
detail the processes for the reconstruction
of theState audTfs. restoration to its poe?- I
lion in the Uuiou. ! ie proclaims a cou
vcution of tho people of North Carolina,
to ba hold as early as possible, eo be com?
posed of thc same number of members as
that of thc two houses of thc State Legis?
lature. No one can bc a member of ibis
convention who has not taken the oath of
loyalty to the United States, and uo per?
son not well affected, as well as loyal, is
to bc permitted to take this oath or to vote
.in thc election of members. None of thc
classes excluded from the} benefits of the
amnesty will be suffered to take thc oath, |
save ou thc exhibition o? a full purdon
fret:; tho President. Thc convention, when |
assembled, will alter or amend thecpnsti- I
lution of Hie State, which rs then lo be I
submitted to the voters. Tuc convention j
will then provide for thc election, by the j
people, of a Governor and members of thc j
Legislature, and the Legislature will then j
elect two Senators to represent the State
ia Ccutrress. An election will also bc
held, "iA due tine,'' for m embers of tho
House of Representatives in Congress, j
"And," says thc proclamation, "inasmuch j
as there arc no civil magistrates in lids
State, nor State oflicers of any kind, tho
Provisional Governor, by virtue of autho?
rity in him vested by l?ie President of thc
United States, will proceed:"
1-st. To appoint justices of the peace for
the various counties, loyal men,"by whom
thc above oath will be administered, and j
who will also conduct the elections, thro' i
subordinates, for numbers of a conven?
tion, in accordeuce with instructions from
th is ofliec, and agreeably to thc laws of
this State in force previoualy to thc 20th
day of May, 1S61.
gd. Superior Courts of Over and Termi?
ner will be held, when necessary, by judgi s
specially appointed and commissioned lo
dispose of criminal cases.
?id. The justices of thc peuce, appointed
as aforesaid, -.viii be authorized to hold
courts for thc transaction of all such busi?
ness as may not bc of the cia?? of cases ?
triable by a jury. The justice:-, by a ma?
jority ot their whole number, will also bi:
. authorized to appoint their sheriffs and
their clerks for the time being, und such
other olrieers as may be indispensable t? a
proper transaction of business. And they
will also be vigilant and will exert them?
selves to maintain thc laws and to pro-,
.mote tiie peuce ol' society in their respect?
ive eouutio; and especially to arrest and
commit for trial, when the courts may be
held, all offenders against anjT law of tho
Stale in force previous to the 20th of Mav,
18C1; and to allow bul!, where the cas? is
bailable, according to the usage of the
.Hy. The Provisional Governor will j
appoint thc State director? and State
proxies *in the various corporations in
which thc State is interested, as the exer?
cise of sucli power by hun canyot he
avoided.- But the control of the railroads, :
tho asylums and other corporations in
.which the State is interested thus,unavoid
ably to this extent committed to him, will
bc relinquished for the action ol' the con?

Such, in brief, is an outline of Hie policy
deemed necessary to reconstiuct the go?
vernment of North Carolina, and to restore
the State to its constitutional relations to
the Federal Government.
A great public meeting took place in
Augusta, Ga., with thc view to the resto?
ration of that State to the Union. Judge
Charles P. Jenkins was called t> the Chair,
and stated the objects of the meeting in
an elaborate ' speech. A committee was
appointed, consisting of Judge Starnes,
il. li. Plant, B. P. Hall, John P. King, lt.
II. May, H. H. Cumming, Edward Thomas,
George T. Barnes, John A. Bollier, John
Foster, L.Cohn, J.E. Burch and George
Cooper. The report of thc committee
admit their efforts for the dissolution of
the Union, do not pretend to rejoice at
theirdefcat, hut declare themselves willing
in good faith to seek re-union as the ne?
cessity of the country. The report and

The Atlantic Talagraph.
The vessels have 6aileJ w li ?eli uro de?
signed for laying the second grand cable,
in the now experiment to uuite Europe
and America by electric telegraph.* The
hope of success is warmly ( entertained.
The journals are filled wii.li the miautest
details of the construction of the cable
and the preparations for laying it*down;
and one of them, commenting upon tho
completion of the wire, assures its readers
that the first act of a magnificent enter?
prise is completed, with an amount ol
success which augura well for th* final
triumph of the undertaking. lu itu way,
the construction of such u eable is one of
the greatest feats of scientific and mecha?
nical skill which evan . ur limes eau boast.
The requirements, ittdeed, are such as
might well have appalled thc most adven?
turous of cngiucerr. The.mere selection
of the design, and the choice of the mate?
rials, involved nt every step considerations
of the highest scioutilic refinement.' The'
copper conductor had to ho made ol metal
tested up to a quality which had never
before boen reached; tho gutta percha co?
vering was to possess an insulating power i
equally beyond * what had over beeu at- j
tained; the true proportion between the
diameters of tho conductor und tiie insu?
lating coating was determined by mathe?
matical investigations of the highest
order, so as to obtain, with a given amount
of material, the utmost possible rate of
transmission of signal.-. Not less care was
needed ?to fix the precise character of tho
outer coating, thc function of which is
simply to strengthen and preserve the
core, which alone constitutes thc electric
cable, properly so termed. In the first
place, a large measure of strength was
insisted on, about double that which hud
been thought sufficient on thc first trial.
Still further to relieve the rn pe from the
strain to which it will be subjected in tho
process of laying, and even after it has
reached its final positif T. in every place
whore the rocky character of the ocean
bcd may throw it into festoons from ridge
'to ridge of the subiuariue mountains, it
was determined to reduce the speoiiio
gravity of the cable far below that of its
unlucky predecessor. Tartly with this
view, and partly in the hop? of securing
greater longevity, each iron strand of the
outer casing is separately covered with
hemp soaked in a l-uitimii.mis preparation,
which ia*expected lo protect the metal for
years from the risk of corrosion. It was
necessary, too, above all things, that the
cable should not only be constructed on
the soundest principles, but that il should
admit of tho most searching tests before
being laid, once for all, out of the. reach cf
From thu Newberry Herald, of thc 28th,
we gather a few facts in that locality. The
Company E, 25th Ohio Regiment, Captain .
Murray, reached the town on Monday last,
and encamped on Academy Grove. We j

j Friday, tho citizens passed resolutions and
i appointed committees to apply for the
restoration of tho ' relations heretofore
existing between the State ami the Fede?

be hold for this purpose on the first Mon?
day in July. Tho citizens are addressed
to tho same effect in a letter by Kev. J. J.

in good feminine' style with tho sharpest
offensive weapons, and trusts that she may
get redress through agencies belter calcu?

announces the premature arrival of the

usually appears, but in the character of a

SERENADE OF TUE P?HENIX.-'Hie Pheonix
was treated to a delicious sereu ?uh' or:
Wednesday night, under her Very nest.
Tho bird, sitting upon her boughs, with
a.11 her young about her. was just about to
fold up her feathers for the right, when
thedulaet strains Mst reached her ear?
She naturally opened theui wide, and the
yoong birds gathered nigh, aUentto listen '
There were several mellow instruments,
rifes, ilutes and soft recorder?; the guitar,
the violin, the coruet-a-piston, and a
modest imitation of the trombone, and
''all went ru :rry as a marriage bell." Very
sweet, indeed, and tender, sadly sweetly,
lovingly tetider, \?ere the ballads sung.

tfie voices, and clearly identified that ot

who, in the guise of a moustached va?

preserving her masculine equipment?,
wanders about with a bird song forever in
her i.loath, lt is whispered that theee
parties, with sundry others, of both gen?
ders, propose a series of concerts in Co?

water and bad whiskey. We-trust that
they will succeed in their laudable endea?
vors, lathe mean vr hilt*, and until their
plots ripen, we trust that they will frc
