Saturday Morning, Joly 22,1855.
Gov. Ferry's Speech.
The speech of Gov. Perry, made prior
to his appointment, which we puMisa ia
thia day's papor, will be read with*interest
.nd satisfaction by all claves of our peo?
ple. It ia's simple, clear, manly and well
considered performance, and its utterance
was,particularly well-timed and appro?
priate. If is manly and sensible, in many
respects forcible and impressive-in all, it
indicates a just, ealm, discriminating
mind, free from allVash opinion, free from
passion and indiscretion, void of all sub?
tlety, all demngogueisoi, and calculated,
we think, to relieve tho public mind of
much of its foreboding and apprehension.
As a matter of course, it can indicate no
particular policy indus future government
of the State, for*the simple reason that, at
the time of ita utterance, Mr. Perry was
as little conscious of the honor th nt await?
ed liim as was any of dhu public. And,
besides, we lake.for granted that the
policy ?if his government is measurably to
be shaped and iudicated by the powers
that be tit Washington, whither he has
goue for instructions. But something of
thia policy, so far as it ts confided to his
discretion, may be gathered from the gene?
ral tone of the speech, from its happy
moderation of sentiment, and the just
judgment which marks the performance
throughout. We have every cojifiJenoe
that Gov. Perry will prove himself . a
judicious, ..thoughtful and indulgent ruler;
moderate of exaction, temperate in the
exercise of power, considerate of society
abd of all of the best interests of the State
He has long beeu known as one solicitous
of reform in educationafaud legal respects,
and he will no doubt seek to inaugurate
certain measures of which he has, been
consistently an advocate in the Hegi.-latur?
for more than twenty years. One of these
occurs to us in the penitentiary system. O
this measure, he has always been a zealous
champion, as well through the press as fr
Uie House of Assembly. Oue or mort
able articles from his pen, in support o
the adoption of such a system io th? State
will be found in the pa^es of aha Souther/
Quarterly Review. When this measun
was urged, there were held to be vita
objections to its adoption in our eectioo
or rather the reasons for its adoption wen
held to be inadequate, in consequence o
our slave, institutions-it being argu?e
that, for a community of negro alavei
under domestic' discipline, there was m
necessity for such aa institution. But, ii
the manumission of the negroef, the argu
merit of Mr. Perry may be urged wit,
renewed force; ami, indeed, without i
penitentiary, a tread mill, and the usus
agencies-of moral and physical disciplin
ia such an institution, society in the Sont
would every where ' become a p?ndeme
nium. Vi e have need to proceed wit!
doublo speed to the task of putting ou
houses ia order, and putting the peopl

Gov. Perry cannot too soon comment
ids operations ia behalf of the. re-estal
Jishment of government. He will oeed t
address himself vigorously to such organ

Verily, his hands are full; he will' ha

in to a safo harbor, and steady at a so

accordingly, to give him a be?rty ?Isar

What will bo the End? , |
The radical Abolitionists of New Eng?
land have had a meeting at Boston, and j
have published a manifesto to the disaf?
fected of all clnases at tbe North. We i
shall probably publish this deeument here?
after, or make such a synopsis of it us will j
give to our readers a sufficient notion of
its 'contents. It is sufficiently viperous. !
We content ourselves now with giving the |
heading* of it from the Ne w York papers,
describing suuima'ri.'y its venomous efilbo
diments. These declare that the South
must be made a satrapy; *coutjnued?ut.ider 1

suffrage is granted, there shall he no peace;

. Negro suffrage and while extermination at
the South are held to be essential to the
salvation of the Union. In support of all*
these veuomous propositions, we have the''
speeches of Weudell Phillips and Henry
Winter Davis. Of these, hereafter, lt is
very certain lhaLthese people will never
suffer the people of thia or any country to
remain al peace, uoder any conditions, so
fong as they derive their importance
from riding the hobbies of factiom How
long will this be permitted* them? How

The Nashville Union states that ?ip to
the present time the greater number of
applicants for special pardon and amnesty,
under the exception classes of President

the late Confederate army. A sri it adds:
"These men have fought g-allanily, endured
1 great hardships and sufferings, and are
familiar wifh the horrors of war. They?

SUDDEN DEATHS.-Severn! sudden death*
have occurred here, at Charleston and at
Savannah, during the pastf w*>ek. Mr.

in this neighborhood. Th? services
vr?re conducted by the Kev. Thos. YL
Leadbeater, RU oid resident in the
Parish, and the Rev. T W. L<*wi?, a
Missionary of the Northern Metho?

composed of a goodly number of
parishioners, together with a *till

the adjacent? plantations. Mr. Lewis
took BS his text a portion of the '23th
verse, 21st chapter Matthew, im these
?words: "Go work to-day in my vine?
yard." "In the course of his remark-?,
in illustration of the meaning of the
words o? text quoted, thc reverend
gentleman embraced the opportunity
of impressing upon the miuds <>f hi?
colored hearers, in plain and unmistak?
able language, their temporal duty to
themselves and their country, which, ?
have no doubt, will prove of much
greater benefit to them than the in?
flammatory remarks which they have
frequently listen*! to in Chaileston.
They were told by the preacher
that their friends in tho North expect?
ed them to work and be a self-sus?

the North were a working people, and
had a hatred for the lozylfod thriftless.

A REMARKABLE CONFIRMATION.
Sir Henry Rawlinson has been distin?
guished for his success in deciphering
the arrowheaded inscriptions brought,
to light by the modern explorations of
Niueveh and Babylon, though all
scholars have not accepted his inter?
pretation. Twelve years ago he read
on a Nineveh . monument that two
Assyrian kings, ono of whom was con?
temporary with Jehu, the king of
Israel, visited a cave at the source of
?be Tigris, and there -inscribed tffieir
names. Mr. Taylor, the English consul
at Diarbekir, recently discovered this .
cave from which the Tigris flows, and
tlifere found the inscriptions of the two
kings, preserved on the rock till the
prese*t time. This remarkable dis?
covery establishes beyond doubt the
authenticity of the interpretations of
those old writings which have thrown
so mugh li^ht upon Scriptu'? history.
At a?conceit in a* country town a
couple of very inferior tallow candles
having been brought in requisition, a
?adv jocosely asked if they were
spermacetti. ''Oh, no," replied Nick,
"they are veritable sperm o' country."
Aunt Nancy was noted tor her
shouting propensit}-, but in an evil hour
she took a turkey hen belonging to

fixed up to go church a? usual, and her
mistress asked her how she could
have the hardihood to go to church,
and take on so, after stealing ns she
had done. She replied, 'La! Miss, do
you think I'd give up my blessed
Saviour for one old turkey hen? No,
nevell' and off she went.
