j3,it the Editors of the Sentinel were once
Union men. They next became vindictive
war men. They turned upon their old Un
ion friends and persecuted there. They
branded them as traitors to the Confederacy,
and they cucouraged those who shot and
ljan'ed them because they , would not, like
tlieni, desert tbeir principles. When Gen.
Sherman reached here they fell on their fa
es, with their mouths in the dust, and
swore that they had submitted in good faith
to the national government. They have
since broken that solemn pledge. They now
boast of their treason. They say Union men
were cowards, because they wanted peace on
the basis of reconstruction. And they are
constantly engaged in rendering the people
discontented with their condition, and in
exciting them against the government.
Therefore we say we have more confidence
in an original secessionist, who has seen his
error, and has honestly submitted to the
government, than we have in them.

PERRY'S LETTER OS THK CONSTITCTIOjr-
. Charleston, S. C, Nov. 5. Ex-Provis-lonal-Governor
Perry publishes a long letter
addressed to Charles W. Woodward of Phil
adelphia, in reply to a letter from that gen
tleman, urging South Carolina to ratify the
Constitutional Amendment. Governor Perry
takes the ground that the Southern States
Way be ruined, but cannot be dishonored and
disgraced by their own acts. He expresses
the conviction that the Amendment can nev
rgain the assent of three-fourths of the
States. He reviews sections of the Amend
ment seriatim, and gives his views against
each at some length. He closes his letter in
these words : " jet me conclude by assuring
you that as feeble as South Carolina may be
and as powerless as you say she is to protect

amid all her oppressions her honor unsullied,

BHraa fivmih Message of .Goo. Jenlin ijto
y the Legislature vf Georgia riotoin'sessioii,
.-, Aa germane to the subject atready discuss
ed, I call yonr attention to another proposed'
amendmeut of the Constitution of the United
States, transmitted to me by the Secretary of
State, and accompanying this " communica
tion . The fact that your acction upon it is
thus invoked, imposes on you an "obligation
to consider it respectfully. '
This amendment, designed, ! like all of re
cent origin, to operate especially on the
Southern States, contains several sections, to
some of which I invite special attention.
1. The prominent feature of the first is,
that it settles definitely the right of citizen
ship in the several States, as political com
munities, thereby depriving them in the fu
ture of all discretionary power over the sub
ject within their respective limits, and with
reference to their State Governments proper.
It makes all persons of color, bora in the
United States, citizens. .
2 The second changes the basis of repre
sentation in the popular branch of the Con
gress and in presidential electoral colleg
es. It provides that, in apportioning repre
sentation among the States,all persons (except
Indians not taxed) shall be taken into enum
eration, unless the elective franchise be deni
ed in any State to any male inhabitants, be
ing citizens of the United States, r and twenty-one
years of age, or , be in any manner
abridged (otherwise than as a punishment
for crime,) in which event the representation
shall be proportionately reduced.
. Whether the object in - proposing this
change be the extension of the elective fran
chise to persons o.f African descent,' (nearly
all of whom are notoriously unqualified for
it,) or a further diminution of the already re
latively small weight of the Southern States
in the administration of the Government,
the adoption of this amendment will certain
ly force upon them a choice between those
evils. If the former be the real object, the
latter alternative must be renirded simply
as a penalty for refusing it. In this view.
it is not difficult to expose the flagrant injus
tice of the proposition. Let us consider
briefly how the amendment will affect States
wherein slavery did not exist prior to the
war, and how those wherein it existed. In
the former class, the selection of the one or
the other alternative will be only a matter of
taste, no great public interest being involved.
If the franchise be extended, the number
thus newly admitted to the ballot will be so
small that ao appreciable effect upon popu
lar elections can result. If refused, the num
ber excluded from the enumeration in fixing
the ratio of representation will still be so
small, that the consequent reduction would
not be seriously felt, and in some instances
would probably be merely fractional, produ
cing no curtailment at alL Now, look to
the other class of States. There the number
of voters propped to be enfranchised, and
wholly unprepared for the trust would be
immense, and the disturbance in the motive
power of Republican machinery incalculable.
There, too, on the other hand, if the fran
chise be withheld, the reduction of represen
tation would be vast. Is there fairness, is
there justice ia a proposed change so ditlier
eatly affecting different portions of a coun
try, united under a common Government for
the common weal ? Would the enforcement
of such change by a majority, it could not
harm, upon a minority it must ruin, bespeak
It may be said in reply that the Constitu
tion does not respect s.tt.Hnal differences
that it was designed for the protection and
advancement of personal rights. To a large
extent this is an egregious error. The Un
ion wns originally designed mainly for the
conduct of foreign affairs and common de
fense, leaving to the States the regulation of
their domestic concerns. The constitution
resulted from a compromise of sectional in
terests, without which it could not have
been formed. Indeed, in that compromise,
the rights and interests of the Caucasian as
affected by the presence of a very large Afri
can population in some of the States, were
considered and adjusted. The African cle
ment, whether lond or tree, was computed
alike with reference to this identical subject
of repiesentation, and alike ignored regard
ing the elective franchise.
Theobjection now urged against theamend
meut is that it will fall upon citizens inhab
iting one latitude like an avalanche from its
mountain perch crushing where it settles;
whilst upon those of another latitude it will
alight unfelt like a feather floating in sti'.l
3. The third section engrafts upon the
fundamental law a new disqualification for
office, State and Eederal a disqualification
not the result of any act to be done alter t he
adoption of the amendment, but consumma
ted before its conception. Tbe act entailing
disqualification for oflace consists n having
heretofore taken au-oath to support the Con
stitution of the United States, and having
thereafter engaged in rebellion or insurrec
tion against the same, or "having given aid
and comfort to the enemies thereof."" Con
sidering the number of our citizens who have
taken the oath under the circumstances set
forth, the number personally engaged in the
war, and the breadth of ground covered by
th word "giving "id and comfort to tlte ene
mies thereof," we can readily perceive the
sweeping character of tbe disqualification.
It is as distinctly prescriptive as if the per
sons to be affected had been ascertained and
their name3 inserted.
Let it be noted, also, that the proscribed S
- -i . i? . t
arc all dwellers on one sme ui a rauiu Kc
oraphical line, whilst the authors of the
proscription have their local habitation on
the other side.
It is quite remarkable, moreover, that there
is in the entire section no saving clause in fa
vor of those who, in the interval between the
cessation of hostilities an4 tne adoption of
the Amendment, may have, received the am
nesty of the Government. Pardoned they
may have leen, but disfranchised they will
You are ftsked to give your consent that
such a fate be visited upon many of your best
citizens who have long enjoyed the public
confidence, and some of whom now fill im
portant public trusts.- Can Georgia spare all
of these from her service, ?
5 The fifth and last section empowers the
Congress to enforce, by appropriate legisla
tion " the provisions of the Amendment. It
wilfbe contended that they are the proper
iudees of what constitutes appropriate ,1-
lation. IX, wiereiuiB, w.b
adopted, and a fractional Congress, from
which the Southern States, chiefly interested
in it, are excluded be empowered "to en
force it by appropriate legislation, ' what ves
tige of hope remains to the people of those
Ste tes ? Nay, more, what semblance of Re
publican Government can the true pa.not of
the North discern J u such a state of affairs ?
Yeu that is the point to which we seem to
X-tTa. tor there is no assurance what
ever that even this concession will insure our
restoration. Amendments have already been
proposed to and accepted by us, which it
wa 4 believed would effect that result; but
ho pe is still deferred, right still denied.
I will not further analyze this Amendment,
eq-ually novel and unjust. .
!f aslc you to consider, however, why it is,
thf it yoii are called upon to vote upon its
adaption, whilst your State had no voice in
its prepartion ? The Constitution secures
to -the States the one right as distinctly and
as -nosfcively as the other. Had your Rep
rntatir J, and those of the other States
similarly situated, being present, aiding in

It is said, however, that unless this con
cession be made, the now excluded States
will be kept out of the halls of Congress in

with such a menace distinctly expressed, a
higher motive (if possible) than any hitherto
suggested would prompt its rejection. .
The Expeeted Meteoric Shower in No
vember. The public has-been advised for some
time, by the papers, that on or about .the
12th, 14th or 16th of November, proximo, a
grand meteoric display, such has not been
witnessed since 1883, would occur. We learn,
through the National lnt-elligeneer, that Pro
fessor Ferguson, of the National Observato
ry," is making arrangements to take scientific
observations on the expected phenomena.
, The Washington paper furnishes interesting
data on f he subject, a portion of which we
subjoin as possessing no little interest in con
nection with the nearness pf the anticipated
display r - ; -
The appearance of shooting stars is quite
common, but in the months of August and
November of each year they are seen in great
er numbers, Generally about 10th of August
and 12th of November. The great meteoric
shower ot 1790 seems to have ; drawn tne at
tention of astronomers riiore particularly to
this subject, and from that time to the recur
rence of the meteoric showers in 1833, and
up to the piesent day, they have been en
deavoring to refer the different phases and
characteristics of the phenomenon to known
laws, and to establish, the exact anniversary
of its appearance.
" Thus far the more brilliant of these mete
oric showers have occurred at intervals of
thirty-three years ; that of 1833 was especial
ly distinguished by the immense numbers ot
movinsr meteors to be seen at onoe, and for
the remarkable size and splendor of many of
them. Among the myriads ot blazing me
teors visible on that occasion, one was seen
at several places of this continent. It was
. recognized by several observers by its extra
ordinary size and brilliancy, as well as by
the length ot time its train remained visible,
which was about ten minutes. The luminous
train seemed to follow the meteor in a ser
pentine course and finally disappeared in a
vast nebulous cloud, many times larger than
the moon, and which continued to move on
ward with a velocity greater than the clouds.
The meteoric displays of 1799 and 1833
were characterized by the fall of meteorites,
which, rushing towards the surface of the
oarth with a loud noise, penetrated beneath
it several feet. The perioi licity of these star
ry showers is not so definitely ascertained
with recrard to the dav as the year. They
occurred to a srreater or less decree in the
months of August and November, from 1833
to 1831) ; but the most remarkable of them
appeared on the 13th of November, or be
tween that dav and the 14th.
The next appearance of the meteoric phe
nomenon, therefore, is expected on or about
the 12th of next month. The observations
of astronomers IiaTe demonstrated that the
shoot in stas are more numerous between
midnight and sunrise, and the majority of
them asrree in rixin-r the radiant po-.nt tliat
noint in which the lines described by the
meteors in their fli'jrht center in the constel
lation Leo, limiting the aria of radiation to
the immediate vicinity of liegulus,in the neck
of the lion. Others assign the radiant point
to the constellation Orion.
The theory mot generally accepted in ac
counting for" the re-rnlar occurrence of mete
oric showers is that an unusual aggregation
of these asteroids exist in the plane which is
reached by the earth at tliat point of its or
bit and through which the earth is several
hours in Dassinir. although observations hav
not been sufficiently numerous to establish
the exact period of the earth's arrival at this
part ot its orbit. During tne iiigui oi me
teors in November, 1833, much apprehen
sion was manifested from the fear that one
or more of tbe&e asteroids would come into
collision with the earth : but hitherto no dis
astrous consequences have ensued from this
"rand celestisd disnlav, and although there
ia ennip reason to believe that an event of
this kind is possible, scientific men unite in
the opinion that such a calamity is not with
in the bounds ot proDauiaty.
Th officers of the Freedmen s Bureau in
Florida send a report similar to that forwar
ded by General Sheridan from Louisian, that

Where life is ioy ?
Pure at thy death as at thy birth,'
Thy spirit caught no taint from earth ;
Even by its bliss we mete our dearth. -

Despair was in our last farewell, .
As closed thjne eye ; ....
Teirs, of Onr anguish could not tell,
When thou didst die;
Words may not paint our grief for thee,
Sighs are but bubbles in the sea ; .
Of our unfathomed agony, , '
Casa Wappy I
Thou wert a vision of delight
To bless us given ;
Beauty embodied to our sight,
A. type of heaven ; -So
dear to us thou wert, thou art
Even less thine own self, than a part
Of mine and of thy mother's heart,
Casa Wappy I
Thy bright brief day knew no decline
'Twas cloudless joy ; ?
Sunrise and night alone were thine,
This morn beheld thee blithe and gay ;
That found thee prostrate in decay ;
And ere a third shone, clay was clay.
Casa wappy i
Gem of our hearth, our household pride,
Earth's undefiled :
Could love ha va saved, thouhads't not died!
Our dear sioeet child I
Humbly we bow to Fate's decree ;
Yet had we hoped that time should see
Thee mourn for us, not us for thee,
Do what I may, go where I will,
Thou meet'st my sight ;
There dost thou glide before me still
A form of light !
I feel thy breath upon my cheek
I see thee smile, I hear thee speak
Till 0 1 my heart is like to break.
Casa Wappy !
Methinks thou smil'st before me now,
With glance of stealth ;
The hair thrown back from thy full brow
In buovant health :
I see thine eyes' deep violet light, -Thy
dimpled cheek carnationed bright,
Thy clasping arms so round and white
The nursery shows thy pictured wall.
Thy bat, thy bow,
Thy cloak and bonnet, club and ball ;
But where art thou ? .
A corner holds thine empty chair ; .
The playthings idly scattered there,
But speak to us of our despair,
Casa Wappy !
Even to the last thy very word
To glad, to grieve
Was sweet as sweetest song of bird,
On summer's eve ;
In outward beauty undecay'd,
Death o er thy spirit cast no shade.
But like a rainbow thou didst fade,
Casa Wappy I
We mourn for thee when blind, blank night
The chamber rills;
We pine for thee when morn's first light
Reddens the hills :
The sun, the moon, the stars, the sea,
All, to the wall-flower and wild pea.
Are changed westw the world through thee
Casa Wappy I
And though perchance, a smile may gleam
Of casual mirth.
It doth not own, whate'er may seem,
An inward birth :
We miss thy small step on the stair,
We miss thee at thine evening prayer,
All day we miss thee everywhere,
Casa Wappy !
Snows muffled earth when thou did'st go,
In life's spring bloom,
Down to the appointed house below,
The silent tomb :
But now the green leaves of the tree,
The cuckoo, and 4 the busy bee,'
Return and with them bring not thee,
Casa Wappy !
'Tis so ; but can it be while flowers
Man's doom, in death, that we and our's
For aye remain ?
0 1 can "it be that o'er the grave
The grass renewed should yearly wave,
Yet God forget our child to save 1
Casa Wappy !
It cannot be ; tor were it so
Thus man could die,
Life were a mockery," thought were woe,
And truth a lie;
Heaven were a coinage of the brain,
Religion frenzy virtue vain,
With all our hopes to meet again
Casa Wappy 1
Then be to us, O dear, lost child I
(With beams of lore.)
A stair, death's uncongenial wild
Soon, soon thy little feet have trod
Tlie skyward path the seraph's road,
That led thee back from man to God,
Casa Wappy I
Yet 'tis sweet balm to our despair,
Fond, fairest boy.
That heaven is God's and thou art there
With him in joy;
There past are death and all its woes,
There beauty's stream forever flows,
And pleasure's day no sunset knows,
Casa Wappy !
Farewell, then for a while, farewell .
Pride of my heart I
It cannot be that long we dwell,
Thus torn apart :
Time's shadows like the shuttle flee ;
And, dark howe'er life's night may be,
Beyond the grave I'll meet with thee,

said, I had tried several kinds of plasters without 1
any benefit, and supposed they were all alike.
My friend gave me one of Allcock's, and urged
me to use it, I did so, and have now worn them
steadily for nine months, and find myself better
