Progress of Soutlicrn Reconstructlon
Conventions-What YV111 Follow!
Were it not for reports of somo
wrangling or fisticuffiug, or nu appeal
for alms, we would hardly realize
that the work of Congressionnl Ile
coustrnotion is now going ou, or
supposed to bo going on, in ?vo of
the ten Southern unreconstructed
States-to wit: Virginia, Georgia,
Arkansas, Mississippi aud Louisiunn.
Alabama, tho first to start the ball
uudpr the programme of negro supre?
macy reconstruction, has passed its
period of 'gestation and given birth
to a singular hybrid in th? shape of
a State constitution. lu this politi?
cal monstrosity are embraced provi?
sions which even the wildest radical
iu Congress cannot lind it in his
couscieuco to endorse. Among these
aro tho freo autlVage, white disfran?
chisement, confiscation, negro jury,
amalgamation and other favorite
theories of tho radicals, to say no?
thing of tho very latitudinarian prin?
ciples of the framers ox the constitu?
tion on the subjects of matrimony
and divorce. The election for the
acceptance or rejection of this instru?
ment is fixed for tho. 4th and 5th
proximo, and in the meantime the
ciuvass, which also includes tho
ehoii'o of State ojlicers under the
new constitution, goes on with more
than usual fervor ou the part of tin;
white population in opposition to the
In Virginia, what with tho Consti?
tutional Convention, the Conserva?
tive Convention, the meeting ol' other
bodies and the negro high-days and
holidays inseparable from the season,
there has been a lively time at I?i?h
mond for somo weeks past. The
Constitutional Convention met on
the 3d of December, and has pursued
a radieal course from the beginning.
The radical frame-work of the new
constitution has been presented
by piece-meal, and discussions, nliko
amusing, instructive aud humiliating,
have followed. The negroes have
the upper hand, and the most ultra
measures have bee^i proposed. lu
tho distribution of privileges to the
inhabitants, it is difficult to ascertain
where those vouch-sttfed the white
man come in. The proceedings of
the Convention are not only radioul,
but revolutionary; and wero it not
from fear of the military, they would,
no doubt, be characterized by acts of
violenco which the records of negro
rule in other climes cannot parallel.
The Georgia Reconstruction Con?
vention (which convened December
ii) has just re-assembled at Macon,
after a recess of somo days. The
subjects thus far discussed in its
deliberations aro similar to those
embraced in the Alabama Conven?
tion, with ono exception-that of
pay. The Alabama assemblage voted
itself a certaiu amount per head per
day, and we believe the sums were
paid ont of funds in the treasury. In
the case of tho Georgia Convention,
however, those who held the keys of
the public exchequer refused to honor
tho drafts bf tho Convention, and
hence there Were terrible complaint
??nd worriment among tho poor
black delegates. Some very houora
bly went to work at ono dollar and a
half per day on publie improvements,
and thereby wero enabled to subsist,
without running into debt or becom?
ing ft tax upon public charity. It is
now proposed, we perceive, to issue
State notes for tho payment of tho
wages of tho members, tho credit of
the State, so far as the Convention
lias power to do so, being pledged
for their redemption. Finally, we
see Congress entering tho field in
' behalf of the delegates, and ono sym?
pathizing Senator proposes to sweep
ont of existence at ono fell swoop nil
the State officers who have the
temerity to question tho authority of
the Convention. That game was
tried at tho initiation of tho Alabama
Convention, and proved a losing one.
Whether it will furo hotter in the
ease of the Georgia Convention, re?
mains to bo seen. General ?Meade,
however, is now on the ground, hav?
ing superseded General Pope, and,
as the former has tho reputation of
being a wiser and more conciliatory
commander than the latter, hopes are
entertained of a peaceful solution of
The Louisiana Convention hus j
been dragging along a slow and unin?
teresting existence of some seven
weeks, and has really accomplished
nothing beyond the adoption of a
few provisions respecting the rights
of the hincks to the ballot, the jury,
to public conveyances and public
hotels. Tho question of pay and
mileage was among the fir?t disposed
of. A number of personal wrangles,
in which thc newspaper reporters
came in for their shara of nbuse, as
was also the case in the Virginia and
Georgia Conventions, have marked
the progress of tho Louisiana assem?
blage. In neither of the Conven?
tions now in session nre there evi?
dences of immediate dissolution,
however much snell a consummation
might bo devoutly wished for.
We have ????t yet heard from i he,
Mississippi aud Arkansas Constitu- j
tionnl Conventions, which were to I
have met on Tuesday, January 7, the I
former in Jackson, the latter in '
Little Rock. In euell of these, how- I
ever, the radical programme is near- j
ly tlie same ?is that presented in the
preceding Conventions; the only dif- !
fcrence in either probably will be
shown in the temper and intelligence
with which tho various topics may
In all these Conventions, in all
these unreasonable efforts of the radi?
cals to tlemonstrato tho capability of
the untutored negro for self-govern?
ment, wo obsorve no indications of
the prospectivo advancement of the
black race, except it be upon tho
necks of the Southern whites. Herc- ;
upon, of course, thc whites must
accept tho challenge, and a struggle, !
in which tho blacks will assuredly1
come out second best, must ensue, j
In Virginia, we already seo that many
wretched blacks have betaken them?
selves to their primitive lints in

To the Dental Profession.
I HAYE PATENTED, mid
now dcoiro to introduce, un
important improvement in
the construction of ARTIFI?
CIAL DENTURES, whereby the strength,
reliability and facility of repair, pertain?
ing to swaged plate work, is communicated
to moulded metalio or vnlcanizable base.
Strong J'lute Teeth a? firmly attached to
tho baso as if soldered to swaged
plate, are, by this process, substituted for
those specially designed for moulded base.
By their uso the operator is left free to ex?
ercise his own judgment in their arrange?
ment, and linds himself no longer confined
to tho sameness of the present stylo of
blocks, or singlo teeth weakened by carv?
ing for moulded work.
No now appliances arc required in this
procese. It is easily acquired by any one
familiar with dither moulded or swaged
work. It gives to tho operator confidence
in tho reliability of his cases, exempting
him from thc disappointment and per?
plexity often attendant on bis most faith?
ful efforts, lt rentiers partial cases as reli?
able as full sets, and, consequently, will
