Provisional Governor Perry's First Proclamation. ^ This terse and business-like Slate paper, tho first and very important step taken by our Pro visional Governor, to bring South Carolina into correct and coastitutional relation.'' with tho Fcd oral Union again, appears elsewhere in our paper of to-day, and we commend it to the attentive perusal of our rendors. The Proclamation i. issued from Headquarters at Greenville, S. C.; is basod on a Proclamation and instructions from His Excellency .'.XBREW Jonssox, Trosidont of tho United Stutcs, and is in strict conformity to all pertinent existing national laws. aDd to the laws of this Stato prior to its secession, which do not conflict ia any way with the provisions in Uti* paper now set fourth, commanded and enjoined. It docs not differ in its geucral features from tho Proclamations of Provisional Governors of other Southern State?. Hut it do?s differfrom them i:: a ?pedal feature, which, to our mind, seems'tn j promise ronny very material advantage*. Hi? j Excellency, i.orcmor Pr.nrvr it seem?, has ruc cceded in retaining in office all >he civil officers of this State, who wore in offico on tho first of May last, and requires thom from Judges and Chnn cellors down, to at once resume and to ditrhnrgr, tilt further appointments be mado, tba full func tions of their respective offices. Our Governor by this step. hits certainly achieved nnd secured for us a great desideratum in the saving of time. Ey it tho .v.W?: machinery of Staic Government begins to rc"vc at once. By it too, the wheel of rseonsirnciion commences at once to revolve, and will bo greatly quickoneoVon to its vtmott veloci ty ; and shove all, and beyond all, by it also we hope, wc will so much tho sooner bo lifted out of tho slough of our present stagnant and profitless condition, into one of uninterrupted prosperity and happiness. Altogether, wo think tho com ! mcucemcnt of Governor PKBRY'S rule in our SltUc. ii naught, but a bright and an encouraging augury that be will soon placo the Slate itself and her people at least in a condition far letter thau that which thc untoward events of thc last four years and more have plunged them. A Convention to alter, amend and remodel the present State Constitution, or tc : ako a new ono, is ordered by Governor PURRY to convene in the city of Columbia on tho 13th day of next month. Election? for delegates to thia Convention nnder o'.tl regulations are also ordered by the Governor on thc first Monday in next month. Tho qualifi cations of Voters, as will be seen by referring to thc Proclamation, are tho Eame as heretofore, with the exception only, of what is now additionally prescribed. That the people of our State will unite heart and head and hand, in aiding our energetic and able Chief Magistrate to properly and rapidly carry out the duties of bis high nnd responsible office, we cannot for a moment doubt.

This individual, in an elegant at tire, and of most gentlemanly manner and appearance, made application at the Harnett j House, yesterday morning, for two conuec tiug rooms-one lor himself and wife and the other for his daughter. Ile made an entry on the register of Mr. and Mrs. Chartrous and daughter, of St. Louis, stating" that his companions, with the baggage, v.'ould arrive on the next ttain. As there was nothi?g whatever about his appearance or manner to awaken suspicion, the rooms were prompt ly placed at his service. Shortly after the same individual might have been seen enter-i ing the jewe'ry store of Wm. Wilson McGraw, on Fourth street- Ile slated that bo wished to make somcpurchases of jewelry, diamonds, &c, for his wife,., who was at the Burnett House. She had desired to accompany bim, but had sprained her ankle, while trying lo I inter a hack; the horses had started sudden ly, and thrown her to the ground; it was a piece of wretched carelessness on tho part of \ thc driver: he wondered if these public car j riages were owned by any one responsible person, ? e. j ' The fellow's neat attire, gentlemanly ap peal ance, and perfectly al homo m an uer, j.ha?, as m:iy well bc s up posed, un immediate ,' elR?ct upon (he courteous jeweler, who itn i mediately consentid to send one of his sales . m*rn tu wo hotel, with a Wlu-iblfe assrirtmeir ; of jewelry.

The salesman consen^ed^ to have a few articles tu ken ?nat a :iine. Ile heard thc attentive husband ask.

': not even the glider of those mag nificent diamond eardrops,the value of which WHS near unto a thousand dollars, cast their brilliant scintillations athwart his longing optics.

It was silent, unoccupied, deserted, and an open door, leading inio the hall, told the story.--Cincin nati Commercial. BY THE PROVISIONAL GOVERNC OF THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA.
