We publish in another column a
synopsis of the inaugural address of
Gov. Throokmorton, of Taxas, Prom
a correspondence between James H.
Bell, Secretary of the Stats ol Texas,
and Mr. Soward, which are fled in
the National InleUigencer, of Tuesday,
we taara that tte assembling of the j
Legislature of that Stete, and the in?
auguration of the Governor, was by
the express permission and sanction
of the Pr?sident of the United States.
In his reply to Mr. Bell's inquiries,
MY. Seward says:
"The President directs me to say |
that the Legislature of Texas will as?
semble ana organize on the 6th of
August, without hindrance. The
Governor elect, Mr. Throokmorton,
win be inaugurated on the Otb, with?
out hindrance. When you have re?
ported tte organisation and inaugu?
ration, to this Department, by: tele?
graph or otherwise, tte Provisional
Governor will be relieved, and the
Government will be?maferred to the
elected authorities m- Texas."
And thus has tho work been com?
pleted; thus the Presidents pro?
gramme for restoration fully carried
out; and thus, thank God, has come
to an end tte last 5 'Provisional Go?
vernment" of the Southern States of
thia Union. Now let us examine
what the people of thc Southern
States have ? right to expect at the
hands of President Johnson, they
having performed, in every respect,
all that he required of them. For
this purpose, wc refer to that part of
his annual message to Congress,
which presents W that body his plan
for tte restoration of the Union, and
the requirements be made of the
Southern States to render that work
nnajjjptain. In the State paper re?
ferred to, the President says:
'.The next step which I have taken
to restore the Constitutional relations
of the States has been an invitation
to them to participate ;u tte high
office of amending the Constitution.
Every patriot must wish fora general
amnesty at the earliest epoch consist?
ent with public safety. For this
great end there is need of a concur?
rence of opinions, and the spirit of
mutual conciliation. All parties in
the late terrible conflict must work
together in harmony. It is not too
much to ask, in the name of tte
whole people, that, on one aide, the
plan of restoration shall proceed in
conformity with a willingness to cast
the disorders of the past into obli?
vion; and that, on the other, the evi?
dence of sincerity in the future main?
tenance of the Union shall be put
beyond any doubt by the ratification
of tte proposed amendment to the
Constitution, which provides for the
abolition of slavery forever within
the limits of our country."
And again, speaking of the amend?
ment, he says:
"Indeed, it is not too much to ask
of the States which are now resuming
their places in the family of the
Union, to give this pledge of perpe?
tual loyalty and peace. Until it is
done, the past, however much we
may desire it, will not be forgotten.
The adoption of the amendments re?
unites ns beyond all power of disrup?
tion. It heals the wound that is still
imperfectly closed; it removes slavery,
the element which has so long per?
plexed and divided tte country; it
makes of us, once more, a united peo?
ple, renewed and strengthened, bound
more than ever to mi^f"^ affection
The people have done all required
of them. They have given in the
ratification of the proposed amend?
ment to tte Constitution, which pro?
vides for the abolition of slavery for?
ever;" that "evidence of sincerity in
the ?utu e maintenance of tte Union, "
which is by that act put beyond any
doubt, and which constitutes what he
causa "pledge of perpetual loyalty
Tn the first sentences of the ex?
tracte we have taken from the mes?
sage?- he says, in substance, that a
compliance witt the prescribed re?
quirements would be followed by
what "every patriot must wish for-a
general amnesty at the earliest posai
ble epoch consistent with the public
safety." Aud again, he says, "the
adoption of the amendment re-unites
us beyond the power of disruption. "
And in another sentence of tte mes?
sage, which wo have not quoted, ho
says the action "will efface the sad .
memories of the past."
Heretofore, we have lound Presi?
dent Johnson trna to his pledges and
promises, and firm and unwavering
in bis execution of thar:, in despite of
popular clamor or tte ravings of
party rancor. We expect tte same
fidelity now, and tte people to whom
these pirotnisen wave made have nj
right- to expect, if ut demand it, at
Jefferson Davis pines in his prison at
Fortress Monroe; they cannot be ef?
faced, so long os the Dry Tortugas
bolds its hundreds of prisoners con?
signed to its noisome priauu-kcepo by
military commissions ; they cannot be
effaced, so long aa many of the citi?
zens of the South are doome-d to
involuntary exil? from ' homo and
friends. s .'..'..?,?.?
Kow, then, we implore that man in
whose hands the power lies-that
Chief Magistrate wno bas never fal?
tered in his duty-who has never
broken pledge or promise to the
Southern people, to place the sign
manual and seal of pardon to his
completed work, and to crown it with
that '"'general amnesty" which he
bas led ns to believe would inevitably
follow onr obedience to his require?
The Manage m rn i ot our Railroads.
We publish, by request, the com?
munication of a writer in the Charles?
ton Courier, complaining of the
management of the railroads in this
State. In the matter of discrimina?
tion in past years, there is no doubt
bat that there was ground for dissa?
tisfaction. How far these grounds
exist at the present time, we ore not
sufficiently informed to comment
apon; bat, if existing, the system is
justly odioas, and should be abo?
The writer also complains that the
rates of freight on all our railways
are too high, and cites the fact that
the freight on cotton from Columbia
to Charlotte is three dollars per bale,
while before the war it was only one
dollar. He thinks that two dollars
per bale -freight would cover depre?
ciation in prices and increased in?
surance. But we think he ought not
to ignore the foot that oar companies
have been to heavy ex tin. expenso in
rebuilding and refitting their roads,
aud that, taken in connection with
the depreciation of the currency, in?
creased rates of labor in every de
partment, would certainly justify a i
proportionate increase in passenger
and freight rates. Whether it ex?
ceeds the due proportion thas re?
quired, we are not well enough post?
ed to say.
One thing is evident-that it is the
imperative duty of the railroad com?
panies to do all that is legitimately
within their power to add to the
business and trade of our own com?
mercial cities, and not give the op?
portunity, by unjust discrimination
,o cities in our neighboring States, to
Iraw off trade that is properly ours.
Those interested should have this
natter fairly investigated and tho
woper remedy applied, if a remedy
s needed. J

Portland, Mc, says the people are j

CDT. Orr*? mgyrh.
The MfVpnai rnfe?ig&tgf? publishes
tte following report of Gov. Orr's
speech in Philadelphie--* synopsis
of which he had by telegraph; _
Tto?vHuni?ii s : I esteem myself
fortunate upon the present occasion,
with being honored witt aa invitation
to address yon on tte. opening of
your campaign in this State. Ten
years ago, ? stood Vtofore you with
the late lamented Douglas, when we
then gave to you our opinions of thc
?rinciplee of the Democratic party,
would to God that he again stood
before yon, since- the great changes
have occurred. A gulf has yawned;
but now that gulf has been dosed,
and we have come here to form a
union between the conservative men
of the North and of the South. I
will merely glauca at a few points to
show yon that the professions made
by the people of the South since they
have laid down their arms, are honest
and whole-souled. The war began
on the part of the South through the
people believing they bad the right
to secede. You did not agree to that.
War resulted; the South was con?
quered; and tho interpretation you
gave the Constitution has been es?
tablished firmly as the legal one.
That decision was pronounced on tho
field of battle by the highest tribunnl,
and the decree is incontrovertible.
The nationality of our Government
has been established. The South has
surrendered the principles she be?
lieved, and is willing to accept your
interpretation. No man would re?
open the dreadful contest to see
whether the decision was the right
one; but all are willing to abide by it
forever. By this war, the people
of the South have, to a very large ex?
tent, been stripped of their property.
Their banks are gone and thuir credit
gone. In many localities, the great
stand-point of civil law has been lost.
Thus, the people of the South have
far more need of a stable Govern -
meut than you have, aud it is mad
folly to charge that they will not
fulfill their oaths to support this Go?
vernment. Although your public
debt has been contracted in defeating
a section of country from which I
come, yet I would feel that any repu?
diation of tho debt would be a dis?
honor to my own integrity. This is
my Government; it is my children's
and grand-children's Government.
As u participant in the rebellion, I
am now for this Government, and its
honor is my honor. I desire it to
stand before all tho nations of thc
earth in the glory, ;ind pride, and
prosperity of a great nation of the
world. Fellow-citizens, we have been
knocking at the door for eight long
months, asking Congress that the
best, the intellectual, and leading
men of the South shall be admitted
into Congress, to represent us there.
If we are not to be trusted now, wher
aro we to be trusted ? Is it just 01
right that we should be excluded
from these privileges? No; for th<
right of representation is regarded a:
one of the most sacred rights in thi:
country. Is it just and fair, or gene
rons, that we shonld be exclude?:
from legislation, while taxes are im
?osed upon us without our consent'
am a delegate from South Caroline
to the Convention, aud I hope thej
will be successful in forming a purl,;
to stand against tho mad policy o
the radicals in Congress. When th
Convention adjourns, ami sends fort]
the results of its deliberations, I trns
that all right-minded meu will be ubi
to agree to their deeds.
