II. Chambf-rLiia w ii stalled on Tiietilay as Governor of South Carolina. His message, which was rea 1 ly him in the nail of the House of Representatives, has been re ceived with much satisfaction by those who always look Uon the hrightts-t f-iila of every dark p'ctnre and whoere willing to behove thst anything gooel can come out of the sinks of corrup tion into which the cm e powerful Re public&a party Las fallen. Gov. . Chamberlain ppeaks well, but a man's speech but seldom betrty3 the hidden thoughts of his heart, and it is al most as impossible for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle or a leopard to change his spots or.to use a decided vulgarism, to whitewash h 11, as for any measure cf honesty or pop ular reform to originate among the South Carolina Radicals. The message is, in the first place, a full confession of the wrougs whieh hare been inflicted on the people of South Carolina ever since the close of the war in the oppression of the citizens and the wholesale plundering of the treasury, and in the Eecond place, a promise of reform of tho many abuses which have dragged the once proud old State down to its present political degradation. It confesses to the evils of the tax assessment, the oppressiveness of the trial justice sys tem, the corruption and extravagance of the Legislature and the inefficiency of the school system, and then goes on to indicate a policy that, if carried out to the letter, will mark Gov. Chamber Iain's tt'im as one cf the golden eras of the Stale. Yet, promises are cheap and a c ita:n warm place, we all know, ii paved with good intentions. We are willing though, and not only willing, but glad, to accredit the Gov ernor with a desire to do his whole duty to the people of South Carolina. Wt? believe that he ia honest and Eiu cere in the expression of his intention to be theExecutivo of a people and not merely of a party, but iu how far these promises cau be carried out atnid the manifold temptations of of fice and the pressure of party, state and national, that may be brought to bear upon him, remains to be seen. Gov. Chamberlain, it casnot be for gotten, is the success jr of Gov. Moses, a man whose entire administration was marked with abuses, and whose character, private as well as public, is in full accord with the corruptions of tho ago and of the Republican party. Tho new Governor will be a veritable moral Hercules if he succeeds in the course which he has marked out for himself. If he fails and falls he will not be in the nature of things he cannot be worse than was Moses. If lie succeeds, tiio r'W&aa.a r,f honest people everywhere await him, and the world and posterity will forget the p n'.y in the zeal with which they will press forward to e'o honor to the man. Gov. Chamberlain's message is a tin p iper, and its noble expressions are couched in equallynoble language. Let us forget that tho parly by whom Lo was elevated are social as well as political vagabonds, in the hope that the leopard may indeed change his spots, and thac a new era of reform and improvement i-j about to dawn upon our prostrate sister State. Let all good men, in South Carol na and elsewhere, believe in the sincerity of the reform promised, and with glad acclaim sustain and support tho new Executive in every movement which may look to the prosperity of the peo ple and the State. A FAT XAIiK. There are many peculiar character istics ef the Radical Republican parly, but if there is any one mere jecu3iar to them than another it is that they are constantly on "the make." The honors of office aro valueless in their eyes unless the emoluments are satisfactory. With them to obtain an offico is the first thing, aud the next is to make it pay handsomely. Given the first and the second will surely follow in the natural sequence of events, and they never drop the orange until they have sucked it dry. This theory is very ciiarmingly il lustrated in tho person of Adelbert Ames, by the grace of Radical recon struction Governor of Mississippi. Some wonder has been expressed that Ames should have resigned hi3 place in the United States Senate to become Governor of Mississippi, reversing the general order of ambitious men, but fiuch wonder will cease when it is knon that to a man of Ames' char acteristics th. re is much more money to be made a-i Governor than there is as Sena or. In the Senate, Ames was a perfect nonentity. lie attended tke ees-ious of that body, it is true, but he evieb ntly believed that silence was alwnys more eloquent than words. At ad events he had nothing to eay, and about the only place his name ap pears in connection with bis official duties is on the roll and the pay-roll. But C-6,000 a year was poor pay for eloicg nothing, and eo Ames took the first good opportunity to step baek into the Gubernatorial Chairof Missis sippi, a po.-itiuri he had previously oc- ' cup.'ed as Provincial Governor, aEd from whence r.bout tho only official action promulgated by him was the signing of his own certificate as a member elect to the United States Senate. Ho evidently knew what he as rbout when lie relapsed from the Sonata into the State Executive, as is Buffieiti.t'.y evident to the minels of those who know the present (we say present) favorable financial condition of the State cf Mississippi. For, com pared with the other Southern States, aud especially with North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama end Lonis iana, Mississippi is rich. There is plenty of milk in that cocoannt.andthe Peculiarity of a clause in the Constitu tion of the State ia the monkey which tosses down the ripe fruit within the reach of the carpet-bag Governor. The expenses of the Executive De- VOL. 30. pa-ttr ent of tho State in 3853 were cojivextiox. $Mo all told. In 1871, according I The popular argument f.gtm-t Cen to Stale Auditor Mir grove's rt port, I V-ution is the fear that it may have they were S:U,t00. Of thU, 0,000; was a .secret service fun :f which the G Av-rnor has aWutu disposal ut ! g'orious triumph, and we most con iris discretion. Should not G verner j 11 m il before we make experiments; Ames be wise in choosing to bo oine-j thafc the certain success of the party body iu Jackson r.n fifty oad thoufjasd't trTO clcs is more important a year, instead of beii g nobody in Washington oa oix thousand ? Before the war the cost cf adminis tering the Sfcute Government was $310,00;). It no .v e xceeds 61,500,000. Besides this, there tuo over $i,G0:3, 000 taxes per annum levied for county purposes. The Governor has the ap pointing of all the oir?ers who handle and administer this annual sum of $8,000,000. Can any one feel surprised that General Ames should prefer a place like this to a seat in silence and contempt in the United States Senate ? We have seldom focd a legislative body, composed to such an extent of new members, go to work so smoothly and so determinedly as the present Legislature. While it is composed of few men who have oeccupied promi nent positions in the State, yet we feel sure that there is as much ability, industry and p itriotiem tmoug its members as any of its predecessors since the war. Upon the moro important matteis which will claim the attention of the Legislature this Winter, it is hardly possible to form any opin'on as to i s action. The near approach of the holidays will doubtless cau$e them to bo postponed until af ier the rec ss. Indeed it is proposed to adjourn until the 18th day of January, for the pur pose of allowing the nu mbers ample time to confer with their constituents. Less is said among the members or in tho lobbies about the Stute Debt than other question of importance. It is easy enough to eay that scnielhing must bo done to adjust the State Debt, but with a people impoverished; a monetary crisis without parallel; an expensive government, and taxes now leyond the ability of tho people to pay, it is difficult to find common ground upon which tho creditor aud debtor can stand. From what we can learn wo doubt if any thing wid be done beyond the appoint ment of Commissioners to confer with the Bondholders, and report to a subsequent L gislaturo. The mem bers of the Legislature will long hesi tate before committing themselves to any action by which tho present bur dausome taxation will be increased. The question of Convention is more agitated. Indeed it is the engrossing subject of discussion among the mem bers and visitors at the Capitol. It is iPooiu, tr t what will be its ulti mate fiito. The Westeiu i th eastern portions of the State are pretty gouerally for Convention, while tho Middle and Northensieru portions are generally opposed to the cad. Yet we fiud among its eiroi'g &fc advo cites, representatives from tLo-.- sec tions. The longer the q lest ton is agi tated the stronger it become ?. Among those who arc frionelly to the call of a Convention are fcorne who wore op posed to il when the reache-d Ivdeigh. j Oa Wednesday night las,t, Mr. P. H. j Winston, Jr., of Bertie, K m ling Ci rk of tho Sonate, by iuvitation of members from al! portions of ihc Si ate, eleliverrel an address in Tucker's Uall to- a very larga crowd, takirg strong grounds for Conrcntior. Tnderd it was n mof-t ablo aud elo- queiit sfecch, and had a teiiing effect upon his hearers. Mr. V, lustou came to Raleigh opposed to Couvent'on, m d had been one of the ablest o-puneuts of Convention, iu the cuumas of his paper, tho Alberniarle Times. His reply to the positions taken by Mr. Yates, tho Congressman elect from his District, was pointed aud telling. Ho bodly aunonneed that the people of his section wero in favtr of the call of a Convention. It this speech could be delivered iu every townslrp in the State there wou'd bo no eloubt e;f tho Con vention. We are satisfied that whre tb.H people are opposed to a Conven tion it results from a want of full in fornia ion upon tho subject. The question of consolidation will be np in some chape at an early day. The Message of the Governor does not give satisfaction to tho Yvestern members as he ignores the rn?.in line to Ducktown, aud urges the compila tion of the branch road to Paint Rock and Morristown. This may array these members against the schem ;, should those having charge of the matter fol low the suggestions of the Governor Upon the question of Usury there nMi divoisitv of opinion.. The A ' Uw M Ssnitfl Committee havo been nrd-l to agree upon a report, the majority boing in favor of a usury law, while tho minority, even the "free trade" money men, report in favor of forfeit ing principal and interest, over twelve pre cent. We shall have something to eay about the personcl of the Legislature and other matters at a future time. The New York HrorW says: "If ve are really to lose Mullett we can try to forgive him the mischief be has done, and even read his report of how great that mischief is with some com placency in the reasonable hope that this report is his last." a rrnr1 mnnv sensible Northern people have imbibed tho idea that winter vacations in the South have advantages over the popular summer sojourn in the crowded fashion resorts of tho North, eo it is not to be won dered at that the Florida resorts aro filling tip with winter visitors from the North, and that the prospect is good for a profitable season. It would be strange if within a few years the time of vacations should be changed from summer to winter, and the fash ion resorts of Northern people be located in the Southern States. MM a bad eft", ct upen the election in 18TG. a, ! Ir, is urged that we have achieved a i than the constitutional re-forms, even if they are made. Oa the other hnnd we contend that if -here were no better or more impor tant reasons than the success of the party iu 1876, we believe that a settle ment of the Convention question now is the Mirest way to victory thcD, inde pendent of the result attending the vote on tho ratification of t; new Constitution. If the Convention question remains unsettled it must necet-iarily form an issue in 1876 an issue upon which Democratic-Cou-servatives will differ. Wo cannot avoid it if we wero disposed for the Radicals will force it upon vlh. Judge Cantwell, the Senator from New Han over, believing it highly improbable that a Convention will be called, has already introduced a bill for that pur pose in order to commit his party to tho policy, that they may go before tho people in 1876 as tha "Reform Prty." But let tho Radicals in their plat form in the aext State canvass favor or oppote Convention, wo must ne cessarily teke position upon it. And just Lere lies the danger to the Democratie-Con? ervative pa: f y. Cm we liflord to have this is sue forced upon us at thst time? Will we be less divided then than now ? If we approve the call of a Convention j eml ng . the Presidential election, it is almost absolutely cer tia that we will not have two-thirds of each Iioue of the General Assem bly. The North Carolina election wili hi tooimp trt jut in a National point of view to Le i.egles'ed. and the whole power of thu Admini-tratien wili be brought to bear to effect the retu't. This will carry us over until 1S7S, and uuui we cau eioct our mate ticket oy more thau twice the majority given to Colonel Pool in the recent election we can hardly hope to feeure tha Legis lature by a majority cf two-third3 in bcth Houses. Oa tha other hand, if wo oppose constitutional reform we are frco to confess that we would fear the result of the election. If our party pulls down the banner of reform, and con fesses itself salisfieel with the present Constitution, and the Radical party, having kicked out the carpet-baggers, proposes to undo their work by w hich j North Carolina is still he-Id in vassal- : age, wo should lose those who have , left the Radical rabks und r the belief ! r mar re?oim ana economy won.ei ie i promoted by tuiTortiiig our cul.o In orekr, tn-. . in fa,i0 ,his j quoctie ii cut of the text poliii a! csiu-i P-rigr. to sel'ie it now while v. e have j the y v.tT, we believe that b.th priu- j cple usi-i pel;y demand th t aetion should he had.

The free peoplo of North Caro- lina canuot regain their prosperity, their credit, or their honor uueler lavs so inimical to their well-being, so illy suited to their wants, begotten in fraud and nurtured by hostile power. EX TU AIiBA:IA. And now Alabama the new Ala bama wants another Constitution, an instrument more in keeping with the necessities and requirements of h free State than that under which they cow five and which was never calculated to meet the wants of a people who propose hereafter to manage their own affairs without the intervention of Federal buyonets. Military Constitutions may .1 fr C-g -pHiMifd'y reconstructed Stiites, bui t.iiey aie ljt ni.iji.jg out every where else except in North Caro lina. Since the recent elections, of course a new Constitution must bo begotten by a Convention, but tha gallant Ala bamians no not talk about "expedi ency." They have worked out their own salvation and they now propose to fin'sh off tho job with a new Con stitution framed and adopted to suit themselves, and - ghastly dread of a defeat in 1876 v. frighten them from tne path. It would be a refreshing sight to see the gray locks of Jerq Black waving in tho Senate Chamber of the United States. They would present a striking contrar-t to th" curbfr !rrke' til that adorns the brow oi Conkling, and which quivers energetically whenever that oratorial peabird undertakes to crush "the second rebellion," and it is safe to eay that the latter would cot flourish by the side of the former, Nothing would look moro like return ing to constitutional government. Noth ing would enable us to realize 30 fully that we have gained a real Democratic victory. It would be like the mtelli gence and virtue of a people returning and restoring a classic statue that has been torn down by the mob. WILMINGTON, N. C, FRIDAY, i;k rorros tkaee.

As the Raleifcu Ciriafian Advocate is pub- ! liehing n daily during the Conference, we do not prepose to follow tne cur rent proceedings, but merely make a few remarks as we may. The presid ing officer, Bishop Marvin, is a thin, straight eied, about 6 feet high, with sharp face, long nose and long high i forehead. His hair is fine, black anel glossy.his beard long and black.auel ho has a rather thin black mustache. Ho wears the single breasted minis teirial coat, hanging u little, below tho knees, and appears to be a little over 40 years old. In tho pulpit he stoop a little over tho desk, oven when speaking, and rarely stands squarely upon Dotu Jeer; generally, one is re tired behind tho other and resiug ou the toe. His voice is f-troDg auel tub', and in singing 1 rings ont very clear musical notes. He is evidently a line singer, well acquainted with music. His eye is dark and clear, but o ving to a peculiar droop of th eyelids, he has at times a sleepy look. His man ner is ease itself, and he presides w ith great dignity, mingleel with urbanity. From tho time he took tho Chair this cioining until tha close of the firrl day's proceedings ihi eus ness moved along in a steady stream, beto kening that he is a iPfuiar worker a ;d v, ill lose no time. No questions of jaw have been submitted to Bishop Marvin as yet, but in the decision of some po'nts of order which arose hl gave e vidence of bMng a wed read parli-n:entariaii. The Bishop has as his council a band ef tried and true Prefrieliog Elders, well trained iu the laws cf the church, aud it will be al most impossible for a wrong decision to obtain. We propose to sketch some of th leaelirg men as wo go on; in the meai.timo we cm state as a cu rious f;-ct that three of the Committee on Divine Services measure eighteen f e t eight and a half inches hih.
