. A large and respectable auditory were very
pleasantly entertained on Friday night last,
at tbe free Exhibition for the Deaf, the Dumb
I and Blind. We can not better express our
appreciation of the excellence of the exhibi
tion, and the fine music, than by adopting
! the account given by our neighbor of the
" The programme was an excellent one. and
the performances of the Blind in music, and
tbe exhibitions of the Mutes in the sign-lan
guage, were nigniy creditable to them and
the Institution. Mr. Palmer, the excellent
principal, under whose direction the exhibi
tion was conducted, was entirely at home, and
to him are our citizens much indebted for
the interesting entertainment.
We would specially commend to the con
sideration of those, who desire cheap instru
ments for social or Church worship, the Ma
son Hamlin Cabinet Organs, of which Mr.
Matthews, now in this City, is Aeent. His
performances, last Friday night, on that in
strument added much to the interest of the
This Institution, and the Insane Asylum,
are noble charities which must be sustained.
They are sacred to humanity and Heaven ;
and no matter what may be our political
condition or differences, these Institutions
should always have the friendship and good
will of all our people.
The adoption of President Johnson's policy,
and the enunciation of a general amnesty for
all past political offences, would hasten at
once a millennium day of enterprise, energy
and real progress, and would so solder the
bonds of Union and concord between our
people, that they never could be broken !
And yet the Sentinel find its followers have
no idea of adopting President Johnson's pol
icy. Its failure, and the triumph of the so
called Radicals, are to be attributed to just
such one sided, narrow-minded, sectional, se
cession politicians as the Editors of the
There is no one vital point in the Presi
dent's policy which the Sentinel and its
friends are ready to adopt The formal abo
lition of slavery, the repudiation ofthe rebel
debt and of the doctrine of secession, really
amounted to nothing, for the reason that it
had all been done before, in the progress and
at the close of the war. There are three vi
tal points in the President's plan to which
the Sentinel and its friends are as much op
posed as they are to the Howard amendment.
First, the President's declaration that no one
should be appointed or elected to office in
the Southern States who had ever faltered in
his allegiance to the federal government.
Second, his declaration that members of Con
gress from the Southern States should be
persons who could take the test-oath. Third,
his declaration that it would be advisable,
in conducting the work of restoration, to
ensure its success, to permit a certain class of
colored men to vote.
As to a " general amnesty,"that has already
been granted. This was done by the Pres
ident, in -his proclamation of May 29th,
1865. Instead of " soldering the bonds of
the Union," it has had a tendencv to snan
and destroy them.
We shall have no "Millennium" in this
country until " conscious traitors" are made
to know their places, and the "unmistaka
bly loyal" are put in control of every thing,
from the smallest office to the highest. This
is the whole truth in a nutshell. It is not for
us to say how this shall be done. But we
have a Congress which will meet soon ; and
if that body should prove recreant to the
hopes reposed in it by the loyal people of all
portions of the country, we shall then de
spair of the Republic, and shall look for the
reign of lawlessness, anarchy, and violence.
Death of Hampden S. Smith, Esq.
We are pained to have to announce the
death of another of our best citizens. Hamp
den Sidney Smith, a native of Raleigh, and
long known as the Secretary of the North
Carolina Fire Insurance Company, expired at
his residence on Sunday, morning last, after
an illness of several weeks. His health had
been feeble and precarious for years. ;
The deceased, though he never aspired to
public place, was nevertheless qualified by
his learning and eloquence for any position
that might have been assigned him. But he
was singularly amiable, modest and unob
trusive, and had no taste for the rough, hard
contests of the bar or of public , life. .He
was the only son of 'that' good man,- Ben

I large majority 5 - f " '
MELLEDeSYTitK J. Not. 9.--The Legislature
rrnected tha nnnnf.Stnfirmol amanitnunt Tha '
rejection resolution reads as follows :
esolved That the Legislature of Georgia
declines to ratify the amendment "adding the
fourteenth article to thBonSCluttOD. pf tbe
United States. "
A motion was made in the Senate to post
pone the consideration to some future day,
but was amended to move the adoption of tbe
above resolution, and this was passed yeas
36, nays none a full Senate voting.
In tbe House the vote stooil yeas 131, nays
2 Ellington, of Gilmer county, and Hum
phreys, of Fauvier county.
The committee reporting this resolution ac
company the report with a lengthy argument.
The substance is as follows :
1st. That the States of the United States
alone are authorized to consider constitution
al amendments. ,
2d. . That such amendments must be pro
posed by two-thirds of Congress, or two
thirds of the Legislatures of the States.
3d. That Georgia was one of the original
States, and must always have continued such,
unless she reserved the right to secede or give
tne a ecleral government tne right to eject
The report adduces the legislation of Con
gress, the proclamations of the President.and
the issue made during the war by the Gov
ernment of the United States to prove it was
held by that Government that no State could
secede, and the war was only intended to up-'
hold the practical relations of the States
thereto, and the suppression of the rebellion
was to restore these relations fully,' and the
Constitution then becomes the supreme law
oi tne land. -
Tbe argument then goes on to declare that
Georgia and other States are integral parts ot
Congress, and no constitutional Congress
can be convened while such integral portions
are forcibly excluded. It says the adoption
of the emancipation amendment is no prece
dent for the adoption of this amendment, the
Southern States having at that time no dele
gations to be received into Congress, as now,
who desired admitance, and then concludes
by saying that as the amendment in question
was not proposed by two-tbirds of a constitu
tional Congress, the committee recommend
the adoption of the resolution above men
tioned. We hear from a great number of Southern
sources the decl-vration that there is no show
whatever for the Constitutional Amendment
in any Southern State, because there is no
certainty and no belief that its adoption
would be regarded by Congress as a finality,
or as the last condition of re-union that will
be exacted from the South. N. T. Time.
The Time gets its information from seces
sion sources. The Southern leaders will not,
in any event, adopt tbe amendment. If they
cannot return to the Union on their own
terms, with all the offices in their possession,
they will not return at all. When they say
they are not sure Congress will not exact
more than the proposed amendment, they
mean merely to insult the Congress and to
offer a pretext for not adopting the amend
ment. They have no confidence in, or re
spect for the Congress. The Unionists of
the South do have confidence in, and do re
spect the Congress. The Times is quite-severe
on the Northern Democracy. What
does it think of their secession allies of the

his long illness with patience and fortitude ; and

without a murmur or a struggle.
Firm, true, and devoted as a friend, manly, dig
