THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1867. '
A special committee appointed by the
House of Representatives of our State
Legislature for the purple of considering
the propriety of calling, a convention to
amend the Constitution of the State, have
framed a bill to be reported immediately,
in which they commend the wisdom of
affording an opportunity to the people of
deciding at the next October election
either for or against a convention. Dele
gates to the convention are to be elected
at the same time ; and in case the popular
Verdict is ia favor of holding the conven
tion, they will be convened by proclama
tion of the Governor.
Of the necessity of such a convention
at the present juncture, we have no doubt,
though from some sources it will meet
with opposition and be styled a radical
maneuver, which in truth it ia, but not,
perhaps, in the sense in which the oppo
nents of tho convention intend, being a
maneuver not to entrap the guileless, but
to afford the people an opportunity of
re-forming their constitution if they so
desire. We are glad a convention is
proposed, and not a bundle of amendments,
which must be accepted as offered, what
is bad as well as what is good, or else
The topics that will come prominentia
befoie the convention for discussion can
scarcely be enumerated at thi early day,
but those most important in their charac
ter are' :
. Some constitutional guard against the
vast and expensive amount of special
legislation enacted at eaoh sitting of the
Legislators. At the session of '65, some
nine hundred and nineteen different acts
were passed by the Legislature and signed
by the Governor, jet of that large number
not over fifty were genera! in their char
acter or of interest or application to the
people of the State. At the session of
'66, the number swelled to between elev
en hundred and twelve hundred, of which
perhaps one in forty or fifty was of gen
Other aud more efficient means than
are now provided for guarding the purity
of the ballot. ?hat the permanent dis
franchisement of those unfortunate, delu
ded men who fled the coxmtry or remained
in hiding places to escape the draft will
be seriously proposed, we cannot say,
though we hope not, disfranchisement of
large portion? ot the people being to our
mind productive of more evil than good.
Yet of the necessity for additional guar
antees of the purity of the ballot, we have
abundant evidence in our own county.
For instance, some roving, characterless
character, who Lever remained a year in
any on community since ho waa set adrift
from his mother, obtains employment at
the iron mills in the south of the eouuty
a dozen days before the annual elections.
IIo knows nothing and cares nothing
about the interests of the county, and will
sell his vote for a glass of whisky; yet he
has the same influence on election day as
the steady mechanie or thrifty farmer.
Ought he to have 7
We mean to be the author of no piece
of burlesque in saying that it is seriously
proposed to ascertain if possible some
means to; prevent the future Legislatures
of our State from being bribed or in any
way eorruptly influenced. A proposition '
haleen made to increase the number of
members in both houses so greatly that it (
will , be impracticable to buy them or a
controlling portion ot them.
It will also be before the convention to
change the bakis of suffrage throughout
the Commonwealth by expunging the
word "icAue" from the Constitution. We
need scarcely Fay that in our opinion such
a change is altogether right aud proper.
'Jolor of skin is not and never can bo a
4 rue or afe basis of suffrage,-but is the
offspring of prejudice whose root' was io
slavery. It was an appendage of slavery,
born of it and nurtured by it, and ought
now to be plucked up by the roots and
thrown into the same grave as its progen
itor.5 There are enough voters more
likely too many than too few j but we deem
it wiser to increase the number rather
than exclude men for a reason that will
probably be the wonder and laughter of
our children. !
Congress, wisely laying aide the
Stephens military bill, has adopted, and
sent to the President in time to pass over
a veto a thorough yet fees objectionable
plan of ; reconstruction, of Which we give
the eatures in another column. By the
pa.ssi.ug of this act, Congress has done
jiiuch i3 give quiet to the country. Had
it adjourned without adopting some plan
ri reconstruction,' discontsut among the
nfcll'tapoMcT -aud anarchy by the acts 'of
i0" ' - h South wouM have
the-friends ofCongresswho are the frue
friends of the couutry, would have to
refute as best they could the assaults of
their opponents and. their taunts of tho
inability of the Republicau party success
fully to handle the question of reconstruc
tion. " The 'measure now adopted puts it
in the.power of each rebel State to be
represented in Congress "at its next ses
sion. It enfranchises the blacks but
does not disfranchise the white for his
rebellion, save those who held some im
portant rebel office in both cases provi
ding wisely. We are firmly convinced
that no process of reconstruction can be
successful that relies wholly or mainly on
force. If we would be successful in this
great work, it must be by measures that
inflict no harsh terms on the people, but
that are in themselves just and humane.
The act passed by Congress comprehends
these great truths.
Murder or lulon Soldiers.
In October, 1865, three soldiers belong
ing to a regiment of volunteers were
stationed on the South Carolina side of
the Savannah river, for the purpose of
guarding a few bales of cotton which had
been seized by officers of the U. S. Trea
sury department. While these soldiers
were in discharge of their duty, six citi
zens either of Georgia or South Carolina,
nioet of them men of consideration in
their" neighborhood, one of whom had
been at one time a member of the Georgia
Senate, stole under the darkness of night
upon the unsuspecting guard., ordered
them to throw down their arms, and upon
their refusal, sent a pistol ball through
the brain of e-ch, holding their weapons
so closely to the heads of their victims as
to burn'iheir hair by the flash of the
powder, and then threw the corpses into
the river. This terrible deed was com
mitted while Gen. Gilmore was in command
of the department in which it occurred,
and' that officer, upon yielding his com
mand to General Sickles, called his
attention- to the case as one worthy
of investigation. A military commission
was consequently convened by General
Sickles, which tried, convicted and sen
tenced to death four of the perpetrators
of tbe atrocious crime, tho remaining two
having fled beyond the reach of justice.
The sentence of two of the four convicted,
on account of their youth and the influence
had over them by their companions, was
changed to imprisonment for life. The
President was immediately besought by
prominent men of the South, among others
being A. II. Stephens, Gov. Orr of South
Carolina, and Ilerscbet V. Johnson, to
pardon these criminals, or else to transfer
them to civil tribunals. One petition
insisted that the President' "avowed
polioy" led the signers to ask with confi
dence for his interposition. 1 On ' July
23d, tbe President changed the sentences
to imprisonment at the Dry Tortugas,
Tlorida. On July 31st, he ordered the
prisoners to be removed to Fort Delaware,
in the State of, Delaware. On their
arrival, a writ of habeas corpus from tbe
Distrist Court of Delaware demanded
their release, and by direction of the War
Department tho writ was obeyed and the
prisoners were released.
This case, though it acquires promi
nence on account of its great atrocity, is
only ono of many. The testimony of
every prominent Union General in the
South is that justice is not administered,
that the lives and property of Union men
are not safe. Says, General Sickles:
"Citizens committing offences against
soldiers are not even indicted by the civil
authorities. Yet soldiers and officers hare
been in some instances' wounded and in
other instaoces k tiled,' 'and no one
has been prosecuted or punished for it by
the civil authorities.". - General Schofield
says: "A geutleraan who commits a
homicide of that kind (of an insubordinate
frcedman) ' gets . hi gentlemen friends
together, and they' nearly all are magis
trates, and they discharge him," General
Thomas says he does not beliere there if
much chance in his department of con
victing a citizen of Georgia of murder if
the victim is a Union man or negro, but if
the murderer is a Union, man. or negro
they would convict him very speedily.'
The committee appointed by order of
toe National House of Representatives to
investigate the circumstauoes attending
the murder ot tho three soldiers in South
Carolina, and to report what action is
necessary to secure safety to union men
and freedmen, declare .
Firtt. That for tbe punishment of crime ia
these departments, the courts cannot be re
lied upoh. In cases where soldiers, union
men, or freedmen, are concerned, justice ia
practically denied, and offences of grave
character against them go unpunished, neither
magistrates nor juriea-fceiogdisposed to
distharge their dutie in this respect, -
Second. That up to thi time there hasbeen
bo change for the better, but rather for the
worse. "" ' ' ' '
Third. That unless substantial justice-is
done to the laboring classes hereafter, and to
the union men and Northern men who desire
tc go there to engage io business enterprises,
no improvement in the t5t of ' affairs' ca
