DAILY NEWS.
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Ordinnnco of Secession lias boon repealed; slavery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. The term, now, will
be for four years, and it will ho tho first opportu
nity tho people of tho State havo had of voting di
rectly for the Commandor-in-chiof of South Caro

Gentlemen: I have the honor to nckuowledgo
tho receipt of your letter of this date, inviting mo

chnrgo tho dutios in a manner to satisfy your just
expectations. I do not, howovor, feel at liberty
to declino the invitation, and therefore cousont
that my name he placed in nomination.
For the complimontary terms in which your iu
vitation is communicated, I heg to niako my cor
dial acknowledgment. If elected, my energies
shall bo earnestly devoted to develop tho agricul
tural, commercial, mechanical and educational re
sources of tho State, and to urge hor forward in
that career of prosperity which I earnestly hope
mav mark her future.
I'havc the honor to he, gentlemen, very respect

It will bo observed by tho following correspon
dence that the Masons of this Stato aro to send a
distinguished Brother to attend a general moot
ing of tho Order from all parts of tho United
States, which will bo hold in Kentucky in Octobor
next. Henry Buist, Esq., has been appointed

Carolina:
Columbia. September 18, 18C5.

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.

WATER, the only known remedy for Diabetes, Stone in

Inflammation of tho Kidney, Catarrh of the Bladder.
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
