CHARLESTON. _-?? THURSDAY MORNING. SEPTEMBER 28. 18C5. The Convention of tho Pcoplo of this Stato, nt ?Columbia, is approaching tho completion of its labors, and has made many radical aUorations la tho relations ami slructuro of tho Stato. The Ordinnnco of Secession lias boon repealed; slavery has been abolished; property qualification for tho Senate has boon revoked; foreigners, after two years' residence, without citizenship, may vote; tho principle of taxation, according to value, has boon adopted; representation is to be upon the basis of white population; the Govomor is to be eloctod by the people nnd sorvo for four yoars; no tliBlrict is to have more than twelvo Repr?senta tives; and oach district is to have but one Senator, and Charleston is to have three. Thoso changes are so radical and rapid that popple aro too much bowildorcd by them to prop erly estimate thoir effects. Tho first two wero an ticipated, and though of onormous import, were so considered, that thoy occasion little concern. Tho Btato is again in the Union, if uo difficulties shall bo interposed by other partios, and tho labor sys toin of our State and our relation to our colored population aro changed. Against the abandonment of a property qualifi cation for the Senate, little nood be said. It did no harm. No man was over kept out of the Sen ate, fit to bo thoro, by such restriction, nnd it was, therefore, a concession merely to an agrarian sen timont which may or may not oxist in sufficient forci- to rondor such concession a necessity; but While it did no harm, it cannot bo said it did much good. If it kept no good man out, it kept no bad ono;and oxcopt that it was a fact, and that in con stitutions facts had better stand until there is a nccc88ity thoy should bo altered, tho chango is not important. Tho right of foreigners to vote after rosidenco of throo years, without citizenship, is entirely ro pugnant to tho conservative spirit of the State, as it was beforo the war; but that spirit is now so brokon, this additional blow will do little damage, Whilo in tho present condition of affairs it may bo of great advantage. We want labor, and wo want a larger white population, and this will be somo inducement?at least it is the removal of an im pediment which might have existed to the full ope ration of Buch other inducements as may be offer ed, and as Buch our people will accept it. The principle of taxation in accordance with tho actual valuo of property, rather than tho arbitrary Standard long established in this Stato, ?b right, and will be a relief to the people of this city, whero tho ovil httB been most severely felt. Tho principle of representation, on the basis of whito population, may have seemed necessary. It may havo seemed hard to admit that tho whito man of Beaufort or Georgetown should bo more considered than the same number from Edgofield or Anderson; or, if the negroes in thoso districts are counted in representation, it may havo seemed bard to exclude them from the polls. But we fear it will work badly. Thoro must be conflicts of in tcroats between the sections, or if not, at least of policy. In that event the seaboard districts ought to havo representation to sustain them; and it Wore better lor the negroes they should have the representation without the vote, than that thoy Bhould not have it at all. Nor will it render oui action leas objectionable to the authority which assumes to set in judgment on us, and in consider ation of whoso judgment some of our actions would .seem to have beou taken. It is objected now that tho negro will be socially districted, and atill bo made to boar burthens without anything to aay about them. But it will be worse if he shall be districted territorially also, nnd the race which im pOBOs tho law will not be by to share it. The election of Governor by the people would not Ht'cni to be a matter of vital interest. It is re garded as n just concession to the Democratic spirit of the Stato, and, as such, is commendable, of oourao; but in giving the Governor a four years' term there would soom to bo a kind of set-off, to take away some of the force of the original cour tesy, and to leavo it doubtful whether democracy is gratified or not. To guard still further against tbo possibility that power shall ever pass from the hands of the nppor districts, which now for the time have acquired the chance to wield it, it is provided that no district shall havo moro than twolve Represen tativos, no matter what may be its population; and Charleston, therefore, though she can havo no representation but of her white population, can not havo more than just that number to which tho most populous upper district ia entitled, no matter what oven that whito population may be; but that sho may not be put ontircly out of humor, aho is allowed two Senators extra, who, wliile they may appear to compensate tho loss of Representa tivos in the lower house, can bave no roal influence on legislative action. Tho action of the Convention, so far, indicate? tho theory that slavery will be less distributed horo after; that emigrants will come, and will come, rathor to the upper districts; that they will tend to drive in the negroes to tho lowor, and that such lower districts, so charged with nogroes, should havo no powor to control the action of the State. This theory is, porhaps, true. In tho naturo ol things, perhaps, thoro is a tendoncy to segrega tion; and it may naturally happon that the negroes will bo in one section of tho State and tho white pooplc in the other; but wo doubt if this would be the boBt for us, or whether tho Stato should holp to bring it about;?tho best for thoso it might be from whom tho nogro should be drawn, but nol for those to whom ho comes. And especially nol best, if, in that isolated condition, thoy shall have no powor of solf-diroction, but must rely upon the good sonso or good fooling of auothor section foi tho measures necessary to thoir safoty and well boing. This wiU he the same drama over agair which has just come to such bloody close in th< Union. Nor would it bo well fo;- the negro. Ho has nt capacity to pr?vido employments for himsolf, an< if supported, therefore, he must bo supported hi the enterprises carried on by white people, am that this may bo done ho ought to bo distributed Tho seaboard districts, with even a diminished po pulation, and that impoverished, cannot providi employment for all the nogroos of tho Stato; am practically, thorofore, it will bo tbo ostablishmou of a colored colony, which, of all things concciva bio, would bo tho worst. It was important, however, that tho action c this State should bo agreeable to the Government At tho beat it may bo hard to carry the Stat back into Congross, and that can only bo oxpooto from tho Government: and that the Governmon might undertako tho task, it was Important it views should be mot, and we preaume thoy hav boen. Tho State has not boon negroized, but i has beon domooratizod thoroughly. Tho fin would have beon more agroeablo to the Bepubl oans; but tho latter is doubtless more pleasant t the President. He ia an honoat Democrat. He i so eealouB for horizontal equality, he is notwillin that even a negro should bo put above awhii man. Ami; on finding this Stato now tho moi pure and perfect expreasion of his social thoorj * will fcol it hi? especial work to take it safoly through tho fiery triala that await us. Wo do not bcliovo it was the condition of hia fnvor and sup port that wo should popularizo tho Constitution; but wo oan readily suppose it will not diminish his interest in tho State that bIic has so considerately stript herself to his policy. ? The Next CSoveriior. A letter, signed by ninety-two citizens of much influence, from all parts of tho Stato, has boon ad dressed to tho Hon. Jas. L. Our, requesting him to cousont to serve as Governor of the State un der the new order of things.

Dear Sir and Brotoek : Presuming on vour well known and deep interest in all matters wliich arc likoly to affect the fortunes of Free Masonry on this continent, and knowing well yonr superior fitness and ability to engage in tho promotion of this object, I take leavo to appoint you as the dcl cgato Ironi tho Grand Lodge of South Carolina to tho Convention of tho fraternity to be held some time during tho next month, in tho City of Louis ville, Kentucky. Warmly and sincerely entreating you to accopt tho appointment, I am, ilear Broth er, yours fraternally, JOHN H. BOATWRIGHT, G. M. of tho G. L. of S. C. Newberry, S. C, Sept. 21, 1805. Bro. John If. Boatwright, Grand Master of Masons of South Carolina Dear Sih and Brother : Your communication of the 18th inst. was handed to me to-day in this town, whoro I am for a brief season resident. Anterior to its receipt, I had Been reference made to the Convention which, at the instance of tho Grand Master of Kentucky, it was proposed should ho held during the ensuing month, und it occurred to mo that it would he eminently appro priate that tho Grand Lodge of this Stato should uo represented in that Convention. Tho great struggle in which the North and South have been participants has ended. Wo of tho South contended for the maintenance of prin cipios wo deemed constitutional and fundamental, and with honesty and determination vindicated them in tho conflict of arms. Now that tho contest is ovor, and wo havo failed to assort what wo regarded as tho right, it be comes us like men finally and irrevocably to sub mit to tho result, and that submission should be in tho utmost sincerity and tho beat faith. Tho Government of tho United Statoo is now that to which wo all, as citizens, owo undivided faith aud allegiance, and I bcliovo that it will ho as magnanimous and beneficent in peace as it has boon powerful in war. Tho highest statesmanship, the profoundest wisdom, which can now be manifested, is con ciliation and harmony with those with whom our fato 1b indissolubly linked. Our future is that of our common country, and wo shall becomo great, and happy, and prosperous only as that country prospers. Freo Masonry may well ho invokod to do its part in tho work of conciliation. Founded upon the rook of brotherly love, supported by tho pillar of charity, those- who minister at its altar may effect very much in strengthening tho bonds of frater nity which should bind all sections and States and pooplo. I accopt tho appointment you tender, and will dovoto myself with earnestness to tho accomplish ment of tho objects and purposes of tho Conven tion. I remain, very fratornally, vour obedient sorvant, HENRY BUIST. The Opening In the South for Northern Farmen. Two ideas constitute a largo part of the editorial capital of tho Southern press. Tho first is thai white laborers oan comfortably perform out-door toil in tho cotton and sugar States, and tho soconc is that Southern mon should not bo hasty in sell ing their plantations under tho disuonragomonl which thoy gnconntor in viow of tho abolition o; slavery. Tho Shrovoport News saya : Many a man, without reflection, and in a fit o despair, is ready to soil his land for a pittance upon tho ground that it will bo moasurably worth less for long years to como, as froo negroes cannot bo mado to work, and no other laborers will coim in to supply their places. Wo eay to such don'i bo hasty; koop your laud if possiblo: if you have good land and a plenty of it, you have a suro ant certain fortune. Thi.iga aro now at thoir worst many have no hopo in the futuro, and speak o: leaving tho country ovon if thoy have to niako a sacrifico of their lauds to got away. This is al wrong, and you will aoon acknowledge this your self. Some of tho negroes will work as well ai evor; in truth, thoy must be made to work, if thej rofu80 to go at it voluntarily, for pooplo cannot b( supported without work; then the valuo of oui Southern crops will draw to tho country ontor prising laboring men from every quarter of tin world. And this will soon bogin to work, and tin reault will be apparent lu tho incroasou produc tion and in an enhanced valuo Of landod property In regard to tho circumstancos which slioulc oncourago farmers to take advantage of tho goot , bargains that aro thus offered, we quote fron 1 another editorial of tho New?: , For somo years to come our crops will bo com ' paratively small, but oven these small orops wil 1 bring into tho country a very largo amount o caah, as prices will continue to bo largo so long ai . thoro is a deficiency in tho yield, A orop o 1,000,000 bales at 80 conts will bring as mucl J money aa 4,000,000 halos at tho avorage price o 1 former yoara. t . Bui tho change in our lato system will neccssi tato a corresponding change in our planting ope rations. Great plantations will d.sappoar alto ? other, at least for many years to come, as nopru ont man will risk a largo orop until labor is mor. ._ abundant and moro certain than at present. I man will never risk a hoavy crop of sugar or cot ton unless ho is perfectly certain of hia labor fo d the wholo year, and this ho cannot bo under ox lt iating circumstances. For a time, and until labor is more oertain am abundant, all our farms will bo small, bat the will bo better cultivated, and altogether better at it tended to than at present. Familios will sottle fo , life, as goinrr into the woods to open a plantatio will be a very serious affair, who., moat of th r work will havo to bo dono by one, or at least b only a few pemons. tu ?

Tho astonishing success which has attended this in valuable medicino renders it the most valuable one ever discovered. No language can convey an adequate idea of the immediate and almost miraculous change which it occasions to the debilitated and shattered system. In fact it stands unrivalled as a remedy for the permanent cure of the maladies above-mentioned, and also DIABE TES, IMPOTENCY, LOSS OF MUSCULAR ENERGY, PHYSICAL PROSTRATION, INDIGESTION, GLEET, and every disease any way connected with the disorder of decay. Persons, if conscious of any weakness, should take tho CONSTITUTION WATER; whether broken down by ex cess, weak by nature, or impaired by sic?ncss, the un strung and related organization is at once rcbraeed, re vivified aud built up. Well may this celebrated remedy be caUed tho MEDICAL WONDER. The stooping, trembling vietiin of depression and de bility becomes a new man; ho stands erect, ho moves with a firm step; his mind, which was previously sunk lu gloom of au ahnest idiotic apathy, becomes bright and active, and he goes forth regenerated, conscious of new vigor. The medicine reaches the constitution itself, aud restores It to its normal condition. For these diseases it is truly a sovereign remedy, and too much cannot bo said ?u its praise. A single dose has been known to relievo the most urgent symptoms. Try it in these cases, and you will give your praise to CON STITUTION WATER.
