Colombia, November 7.?In the Senate, to-day, tho
principal matter taten up was the bill to establish the
domestic relations of persons of color, which was partly
read for the second time, and underwent several modi
fications. Tho amendments, however, were principnUy
in form, and not in substance. Tho principal features
of tho bill have been retained.
In tho House, to-day, the bill to establish the District
Co.-.rts was token up and read. This is tbo third bill of
ibo Codo. It gives to tho District Judge oxclusi vo juris
diction, subject to appeal, in all cases, civil and criminal,
in law and in equity, in which persons of color are parties.
It also gives to him tho appointment of magistrates and
supervision over district officers. It requires him to
hold weekly and monthly sittings of his Court, for the
trial of misdemeanors and for other matters, and also
quarterly sittings, lie also is required to approve con-,
tracts made with persons of color, and for Umso se.
Ticcs ho in to be allowed a salary of live hundred dollars,
tnd nn additional compensation which has not yet been
fixed. An tho bill now stands, thirty-one lawyers, with
a supposed thorough knowledge of low a Ad equity, will
be required to devote a great part of their timo to tho
dntlc9 of what bids fair to be a very laborious office.
A bill to amend tho Crlmiua] law was also read for the
first time. This bill is the fourth and last bill of tho
A bill to amend the Stay law was read and ordered ta
be printed; alspa bill to establish the evidence with re
gard to lost deeds.
'I he joint Committee, to whom was referred the peti
tion of i-urlrtlii. cif?zens of St. Holenu Parish, reported
the actual condition of the lands?that come hud been
and others now uro advertised for sale?and recommend.
od tho adoption of resolutions to tho effect that Oov.
Perry be urged to use every exertion to regain the lands,
und that tho lion. \V. II. Trcscot continue his duties,
which he has so "well sud usefully discharged.
Thi.s report was agreed to, and ordered to be scut to |
tiio Senate.
The Committee on Federul Relation?, to whom was re
ferred the resolutions of Mr. Barker in regard to tho
fulfilment of tho Stuto of tho obligations imposed upon
lier, and asking that tho pledge of tho Oovernmcnt be
fulfilled towards her, (about which I wrote to you in my
letter of Friday night), made a report, in which they
state that, until tho supremacy of tho law is restored,
onr1. people cannot be' roused to tli?t energy whlcJl is,
necessary for tho return of prosperity; that, iiaving ac
cepted the actual condition of tilings in good faith, we
bad a right to hope that wo would be allowed to resumo
our rights, and recommended tho adoption of tho reso
lutions. s
The immediate consideration having been moved, tho
Speaker proceeded to read the report, and while in the
net of so doing, Message No. 4 of the Provisional Gov
ernor was received. This message stated that on the
28th October he had received a telegram hoping that the
Legislature would adopt the constitutional amendment;
that subsequently ho received another communication
irom bun, to tho effect that he lelt disappointment at
the action of the state with regard to the constitutional
Amendment and the war debt. Oovemor Perry replied
that the war debt was inconsiderable, and that it was
feared that the second clause of the amendment would
enable ongrcaa to interveno in tho internal affairs of
the States. .
To this Mr. Soward replied that tho President regard,
ed adoption of these a sine qua non, and tMt he regarded
the objection to tho second clause of tho constitutional
Amendment aa querulous and unreasonable.
Governor Perry also stated that he had addressed a
communication to the Administration with regard to the
assumption of the direct tax by tho State, and he recom
mended that tho Legislature should assume the same.
- Mr. Campbell said that he had stated the other day
that thero is frequently great strength in inactivity.
Jtloes not this show the truth of the remark? He asked
the Oenerul Assembly if it is not well to remember the
remark of Sir James Mclntosh, that there is such a
thing as masterly inactivity. Is it not our business to
let tho conquering party make their demands, and to
give only what they demand ? lie believed that thero is
groat hope for tho South. When tbo Constitution is
spoken of &t the North, it ordinarily means the Presi
dential election mid the spoils of oftlco. No nation or
individual is dishonored, except by its own action. Let
us do nothing but what we arc compelled to do. Let us
Invite no discussion, but let us remember the position of
the lion and the other beasts in the fable; this In mine
as king oi the forest; this is mine on account of my
power in the chase; and this third part, let him toko who
can. -
The consid?ration of Mr. Barker's resolution was then
resuinyd. .
Mr. Barker said that it was the first time in six months
that South Carolina had attempted to UHert her dignity.
He knew that South Carolina had nothing but what be
longed to a eouqucrcd people; but we are not obliged to
bend under the lash and bite the dust. We are not here
>a representatives of a conquered people, but under tho
Constitution. These resolutions toil nothing but the
truth, and thc.ro euti be no impropriety in that.
Mr. Ryan said that, while we shonld accept the Con
?titutioual amendment, we should do so hesitatingly, to
abo? the North that we do not willingly accept every
pill that it m ay choose to offer.
Mr. Mullins said that tho resolutions meant that tho
Convention of the 8tate was called under cert ain pledges,
which pledge? should be carried out.
Mr. Campbell hero asked if any gentleman had the
President's proclamation, au that was tho organic law.
His opinion wus, that we had carried ont the require
Mr. Mulita!) continued?The resolutions say wo liavo
convened at your bidding; have carried ont your pro
gramme ; und now ask you io'carry out your pledge. If
we are conquered, have wo not a right to recall to them
their contract, and ask them to carry out their pledge.
If these resolutions contained a threat, he would not
vote for them. The providence of God bas placed us in
.* condition in which we cannot do what wo would; but
Jt is not proper for us to aay this was not in the bond.
There is a d?-pth of infamy an;1, degradation wbieb this
peoplu cannot accopt. The brand of infamy is paying
to? dearly even for civil liberty.
Mr. P. P. Iticlinriliion Haiti Uiat tin- lUCSuAg? of tin
Governor found them considering Ojo report, and that
message would indicate ?hat something more was y.-t
demanded; but cannot wc, on that account, say that we
believe that we have done all, and ore entitled to all that
you haw offctvd ? If new subjects occur, let us th? n
meet Uicm ; and if more is demanded, and wo cannot
escape them, let uh givo; but truth demands that wc
should give an honest expression of our opinion that,
up to-day, wc havo all that is demanded of us.
Mr. Campbell said that we cannot comply with the re
quisition of tho President and Mr. Reward to repudiate
tbo debt, as that wouldtroqulrc another Convention?re
pudiation having been forbidden by tho Convention.
He read the order of Geil. GiRniore with regard to tbo
appointment of Governor Perry and tho call of the Con
vention by order of tho President, and said that, in his
opinion, the resolution? were manly and truthful. They
woro before us when we read the Message. He agreed
wi th Mr. Barker. He knew that when the President was
appealed to in a truthful, manly way, that ho replied in
tbo tamo manner. AU blow thai he has the highest re
gard for Governor Perry, but ho was not pleased that he
ohould hr.vo managed thp matter of tho constitutional
amendment without referring it to tho Legislature. He
did not think him tho best pilot In the worst storm that
ever was seen. He could not be captain, pilot and cook
at tho samo time. Let him shinny his side and manage
tho governorship as he pleases, but let us manage our
own afluir?, He was in favor of the constitutional amend
ment, and did not wish Oov. Perry to answer for him.
Mr. Dnryoa said that ho would voto against the reso
lution, because there was no power to whom itconUl be
addrf **?d. Thoy are a mere expression of tho opinion
of this Legislature, which is at this time uncalled for,
and are addressed to but one of the branches of the
Government. Tho President did uot undertake to say
What was, but merely what, in his opinion, would be
necessary. Oongrcss was tho only power which would
scy on what ground this Stato would bo restored, or
whether she would bo or not. Wo do not know whether
wc will he treated ns a sovereign State or not In tho
prissent state of uncertainly, the proper course is to do
Oen. EUi'itt said that he would vote against the
resolutions, because he did not see that they would ac
complish any good.
Oov. Uonhani moved to have tho report and resolu
tions printed, ami made the special order of to-morrow,
at one o'clock, which was agreed to. The resolution
wiU net improbably bo ?lightly amended to-morrow, so
us to meet the views of oU parties.

The New York World, ot tho 4th, says: Wo are per
mitted to copy the following extracts from a letter re
ceived by a merchant of this city, from Kingston, Ja
maica, b)* way of Havana:
-.. -. -lviNorton, October 15, 1?GJ.
Ere this roaches New1 York yon will no doubt have
heard of tho uusottled state of tho island, caused by the
disaffection of the negroes. The wildest rumors prevail
hero in Kingston regarding tho reported atrocities of the
blacks in the interior sections of tho isluud. For what
cause tho blacks arc in rebellion against their owti Gov
ernment remains to be ascertained. Iu Jamaica, ns you
ere aware, tho colored people have the preponderance,
both In numbers aud iulhtoucc. The Legislative Assem
bly, corresponding to your Congress, la virtually and to
all purposes a negro assembly, as not more than one
tilth of tho members belong to the despised white rac?
The black population or {ho island outnumbers the
white twenty to one. Tho Mayor of Kingston Is a col
ored man, although he is believed to'dlsagree with tho
majority of the colored peopio in their fanciful and vis
ionary th?orie. More than three-fourths o.f the niagls-..
trates end i officers.-?of the Colonta\ 'GO>'cnUHei\t;<u?Q
colored men, and several ?f the~bc"st cducatcd~ancl most'
prominent journalists of the island are also colored men.
Tho police are, with very few exceptions, belonging to
the same race. Still, although education is generally
dlllused throughout tho colony, there seems to he an In
fernal feeling of hatred displayed toward tho whito mi
nority, on the part of tho negroes.
The principal cause of this feeling toward tho white
man is said to be the introduction of a number of incen
diary emissaries from the Northern United States, who
go about among the half-educated and debased blacks,
instilling false and pernicious ideas into the craniumsof
their too-willing hearers. These scoundrels preach tho
doctrine of a free and independent negro republic, to
whoso chief-magistracy they would elevate the brutal
Sunloque (at present residing at Kingston), or some of
his mushroom nobility. We have also in our midst a
large number of negroes, igno ' at ami brutal in their
instincts, from the'neighboring island of St. Domingo,
who would not.tail, in caso of a general outbreak, to fol
low in tho footsteps of the inhuman butchers of 1793, if
tho chance was afforded them. You will remember that
the blacks sent a petition detailing their financial griev
ances to the Queen some time ago, complaining of the
high rate of provisions and other necessaries of ufo, and
demanding some meaos of relief.
The answer from tho Home Government was, in sub
stance, "goto work;" but this did not please Uiu half
barbarous descendants of the Maroon? in the interior of
the island, and since then there has beon muttering?
and seeret plottings on the part of tho blocks, encour
aged and fomented, as I am aware from personal expe
rience, by men who should know better from their in
telligence and education. There aro a great number of
helpless whito families, without protection, scattered
throughout the more remote sections of the island, in
accessible to all assistance in caso of an ?meute. lu Kings
ton, we depend for our safety upon a fleet of war vessels,
a handful of white troops, and a regiment of African ne
groes from the Cape of Good Hope, who stroDgly evince
by their bravery and conduct the samo feeling of hatred
toward the colored nativos of the island that tho latter
manifest toward the whito population. Iu case of a uni
versal rising all over tho island I anticipate an indis
criminate massacre of white women and children as iu
former insurrections.
As I am about to close this letter for the mail, I have
received some very bad 'information from St. Elizabeth
parish, through our agent there. He states that there
has already boen fearful work in ono or two of the par
ishes. Several white men have been murdered iu cold
blood by the Infuriated negroes, and their bodies muti
lated in a shocking manner. It is also rumored that
three accomplished young ladles, belougiug to ono of
the best families In tho parish, have, beon first tortured
to ascertain tho whereabouts of valuables, and then
murdered In a moat fiendish manner. Terror reigns
supremo in tho vicinity of Black Rlvor, and the planters
aud law-abiding citizens are preparing themselves for
the final struggle by arming and barricading their
dwellings. My family, as yon know, resido in the vi
cinity of the outbreak, aud I am in dread anticipation of
receiving news of their slaughter every moment, I
must close my letter, for I am unfit to write any farther.

The New York Time* says of tho Congressional oath
that it certainly would be a remarkable anomaly, If Con
gress had tho power to protect tho Government by re
quiring an oath of loyalty from all its servants In the ad
ministrative and judicial departments, and yet no power
to carry but tho same purpose by requiring a similar
oath from the public servants in the legislative depart
ment. In which equal If not greater opportunities exist
to cripple the Government It would again be a rcmark
able anomaly if Congress bas a right to pass law?, making
tho commission of all other felonies a perpetual disqual
ification of holding civil oflloe or trust, a right which it
lias always exercised in common with every State Legis
lature, il it has not the right to attach the same disqual
ification to the highest of all felonies?treason, It would
again be a remarkable anomaly if in the case of treason
aTone of all others, an oath cannot constitutionally bo ex
acted from the applicant for public trust, to establish
and verify his qualification.

street. New York.
This work, coming to us from the publishing house
of u gentleman who has placed us under repeated obli
gations by continued acts of courtesy and attention, has
been perused with a preconceived desire to say in its
behalf as much as can be sai?\ with any degree of con
scientiousness. As we have vainly searched, however,
for tho slightest spark ol merit in the work Itself, save?
what wo tako pleasure jn according it?tho oxccllcnco of
tho diction; aud, as wc are anxious to say something
good in connection therewith, we premise our remarks
by observing, that Mr. O'Kane is one of tho most relia
ble, onorgctlc, and enterprising publishers In New York,
who rarely sends forth, from his press, any but first
class productions. Revenons a nos moutons. With the
exception of the diction, which is chaste and faultless,
the book, from the first page to the last, is simply the
mOBt supreme trash that ever emanated from a woman's I
pen. The Boy in Blue enters the army, fights bravely,
plays the spy successfully, and turns out, after oil, to be
a girl in blue, who, having discarded tho lover she had
some affection for, on tho ground that he Is a rebel ami
a traitor (terms exceedingly unpalatable to Southern
readers), follows, in disguise, the man she docs no< love
and marries him In tho cud.
Thero is a negro in tho book, aud au attempt at imi
ta tliig the negro dialect?only an attempt, however, for
it bos too much smack of the mlustrel talk, and
too little of the ring of the real coin. It is to bo regretteil
that Mrs. Giloer-sleeve should bavo wasted tho time
noccBsarily required evoit in the mechanical labor it
must have cost her to got up these three hundred pages
of plotless, senseless trash. Wo must, however, excuse
her for pandering to the prejudices of tho multitude, for
even Shakspeare was uot exempt from this weakness,
evinced in making Shylock a Jew an?! Antonio a Chris
tian, when the facts from which the plot was taken were
tho exact reverse. We do. not, however, accuse Mrs.
GiLOEnst.nF.vE of wearing the mantle of the Immortal
Dard of Avon. Wc doubt if she could create a Hamlet,
a Macbeth or o Lear, but we honestly believe she is capa
ble ef producing a better book than Rtmy St. Rtmy.

providcB for the olcctlon, in each district, of a Judge, to
administer the laws made necessary, under the new or
der of things consequent upon the abolition of slavery.
The position, do far as the District of Charleston is con
cerned, is one of tho greatest importance, aqd one of
our wisest and best men should he selected to fill it.
Such u man can be found, as wo believe, in tho person
of tho Hon. Charles Macbeth, whom wo beg to pre
sent, without any knowledge on his part, for the office.
An eminent jurist and wise counsellor, ho wiU, with
the experience derived from eight years' service in the
Mayoralty, safely administer the laws applicable to our
new condition ; and if he be selected, our whole commu
nity can rely upon a faithful and honest discharge of the
duties of tho office.
