Friday Morning. December'll, 1868.
Tit? Charleston mnd ga vu II nala Rail?
One of the most gratifying evi?
dences of the disposition of our poo
ple generally to tarn their attention
to the work of practical reconstruc?
tion, and abandon the excitements
of political contest, is to be found in
the fact that our cotemporary of
Charleston, the iJuily News, is devot?
ing its columns to the consideration
of the necessity of rebuilding tho
Charleston and Savannah Railroad,
and prosecuting other works of in?
ternal improvement In doing so,
the ive.rs has our most cordial ap?
proval, for many reasons-not tho
least of which are: first, that all ne?
cessity for tho agitation of political
questions, as far as we of the South are
now conoerned, was extinguished by
the late election ; and, secondly, that
upon the'repairing of tho Charleston
and Savannah Railroad, will depend
to no sm al lex tent the revival of trade
and prosperity in our metropolis.
This road had barely beon completed
when the war oommenced, aud the
business communities of tho two
cities which it brought into fraternal
embrace had just commenced to re?
alize the practical advantages which
naturally followed the completion
of the enterprise. In common
with many of our publio internal
improvemnts, the road was subject?
ed to the misfortune of war, and
when the armies of tho Confederate
States wero surrendered, for the
most part had been destroyed; its
track torn up; its bridges burnt, and
scarcely any of its property, save
the rolling stock, was in a state of
preservation. Realizing the neces?
sity for its restoration as an cflcctivo
agency in reviving the business inte?
rests of Charleston, the Direction of
the road took steps immediately to
further this purpose, but ?lid not
succeed, because they could not com?
mand tho necessary capital. Tho
rest of tho history of thc road and
tho claims it now presents for the fa?
vorable consideration of the General
Assembly, are best stated in the fol?
lowing extract from tho Netos, of
"Wednesday, which wc reproduce with
"The State, by its statutory mort?
gage, had the first claim, and it was
so evident that the road uucomplcted
was worth but littles, while completed
it would be worth at least $2,000,000,
that tho General Assembly, in 18G5,
passed au Act authorizing a loan of
$500,000, to bo applied to re-building
the road. The State agreed to post?
pone its own lien, and gave prece?
dence to tho new loan, which was to
have a first lien upon the whole pro?
perty of the company. This was am?
ple aud sufficient security; but in
consequence of the unsettled condi?
tion of affairs, and the placing of tho
State under military rule, tho loan
could not be negotiated upon econo?
mical or reasonable terms.
"lu the meantime, thc creditors
under the second lien, caused the sale
of tho road and its property, becamo
its purchasers, and organized them?
selves into tue present Savannah and
Charleston Railroad Company. Their
bonds, the second lien, they convert?
ed into stock, leaving tho road with
no bonded debt but that guaranteed
by tho State, amounting to $505,000,
bearing six per cent, interest, and due
in 187?. Tho now company proceed?
ed slowly with tho work of recon?
struction, using their limited mean.'
to the best possible advantage, nml
there is completed aud in good ordei
ut this moment sixty-two miles of tin
road, supplied with rolling slock ami
locomotives in fair condition.
"The Savannah and Charlestor
Railroad is now paying its working
expenses, aad it is ovideut enougl
that its completion would make tin
bonds guaranteed by the State a se
Ctirity second in value to no security
in tho United States bearing tho saan
rate of interest. But while the ron<
is incomplete it cannot pay the inte
reston these bonds, ac a as tho inte
rest accumulates, tho debt and ha
bility of the Statu is steadily incrcas
ing. while thc property to which tli
Stufe looks for security ?s daily re
ceding in value. There is no doub
that it would be for the general goo?
of tho State to reopen tho road a
once, and in this instance tho inte
rests of the State, ot the people am
of the creditors, alt lie in one and th

Frederick Bnokmau, ono of th
Germans who was wounded by th
negree i the late adair near Navan

THE FI ?ST NEGRO CONGRESSMAN.
The New York Herald says:
"Whon tho negro who had just
been declared elected to Gongressfor
the unexpired term of the late Gol.
Mann, formerly of the Federal army
and subsequently Democratio Repre?
sentative of the Second District of
Louisiana, shall preseut himself at
the Capitol, an interesting, important
and somewhat complicated question
will arise as to his eligibility. This
de neniis, of course, upon the dato to
bis title to citizenship. According
to tho Dred Scott decision, all rights,
including that to citizenship, were
denied to the negro. And it is only
very recently that tho Civil Rights
bill and the famous fourteenth
amendment have superseded tho
Dred Scott decision. Now, accord?
ing to the Constitution, no one is eli?
gible as a Representative to Congress
unless ho has been for seven years a
citizen, und no one is eligiblo UM a
Senator unless ho has been for nine
years a citizen. When, therefore,
the first negro claimant for a seat in
the House of Representatives shall
offer his credentials, it must bo decid?
ed at what date tho citizenship of tho
negro in the United States must bo

"Before Meuurd can havo bis enso
determined on, it will become neces?
sary for the House to determine
whether the late Mr. Mann waa enti?

that Mr. Mann was at the time of
his decease the sitting member from
his district, but his scat was contest?
ed, and the question was undeter?
mined, and is yet before tho Com?
mittee on Election. Should tho
House decido that Marni's contestant
was entitled to the seat, Menard

elected to fill Mann's unexpirod
A correspondent of tho Charleston
News having asserted that tho Demo?
cratic members of thc IIouso refused
to sign the petition for the removal
of Judge Moses' political disabilities,
C. C. Turner, Esq., Democratic Rep?
resentativo from Spartanburg, says:
"That neither Judge Moses nor
auy of his friends ever asked any
Democratic member of tho General
Assembly to sign such petition, nor
was it known by them tbnt Judge
Moses had gone to Washington, 01

Message from tho Governor Xo. 4.
was then read, as follows:
COLUMBIA, December 9, 1SG8.
The Honorable (he Speaker of lite.
House of Re]>resenttilires.
Sin: In response to a resolution of
tho House of Representatives of tho
7th instant, as follows:
Resolved, That His Excellency the
Governor be requested to iuform the
House of Representatives whether
the Circuit Judges elect of the seve?
ral Circuits have duly qualified, if so,
when, and whether they or any of
them have failed, aud if so, why, to
enter upon tho discharge of their du?
ties ns required by section fifteen of
an Act entitled "An Act to organize
the Circuit Courts," passed the 20th
day of August, A. D. 1SG8.
I have tho honor to state that,
while il is known that the Judges for
the several Circuits, with tho excep?
tion of Hon. D. T. Corbin, since re?
signed,? took the oath of office, there
is no official record of thc ?late on
which they were qualified in this de
partmeut. Commissions were issued
to them respectively as follows: Hou.
Zephaniah Platt, Second Circuit,
August 20; Hou James M. Rutland,
Fourth Circuit, August 31; Hon.
John T. Groeu, Third Circuit, Sep
tember 1; Hon. D. T. Corbin, First '
Circuit, September 2; Hon. T. O. P. j
Vernon, Seventh Circuit, September
18; Hon. \V. M. Thomas, Sixth Cir?
cuit, September 30; Hon. Lemuel
Boozer, Fifth Circuit, October 2;
Hon. James L. Orr. Eighth Circuit,
No direct information bas been re?
ceived at this department, as to whe?
ther the Judges have entered upon
the discharge of their linties, with
the exception of Judge Platt, of thc
Secoud Circuit, and Judge Boozer,
of the Fifth Circuit, aud I have rea?
son to believe that these are the only
Circuits in which Courts have been
held. No explanation has been re?
ceived from or on behalf of the other ,
Judges for the delay or neglect of
commencing their official duties.
The necessity of holding Courts is
very great, and tho delay is highly
detrimental to the public interests
and a grievous wrong to those await?
ing trial. Many of the jails are filled
to overflowing with prisoners, involv?
ing a heavy expense for their sub?
sistence, and jeopardizing their safe?
keeping. In several instances they
have beeu awaiting their 'rial for a
longer period than would probably
have been allottod to them as a pu?
nishment, had they been found guilty
of tho offences imputed to them.
Tho Constitution guarantees to every
accused persou a speedy and public
trial, and that every persou injured
in his lauds, goods, person or repu?
tation shall have remedy by duo
course of law, and justice administer?
ed without unnecessary delay.
I, therefore earnestly iuvoke your
attention to tho necessity of such
legislativo action as, in your opinion,
tho exigeuey of the caso demands.

mation, und referred to the Commit?

Messogo from tho Governor No. 5
is as follows:
The Honorable the Speaker of the

the necessity of an appropriation for

this connection, I beg leave to advert
to the inadequacy of the compensa?

"The performances of Stone ?fe

periority. Tho resources of the

BUKOLARS, BEWARE!-Onr corres?
pondent, "Citizen," is referred to
Messrs. J. k T. R. Agnew, who will
furnish him with an article that will
effectually remedy the evil he com?
plains of. Messrs. A. have purchased
the right of Utley's patent burglar
alarm-a most useful, economical and
effective weapon-or series of wea?
pons, for it is discharged in four'dif?
ferent directions. As these alarms
will doubtless, bo brought into gene?
ral use, tho burglar business will be
attended hereafter with more than
the usual risk. They aro admirably
adapted for cither stores, dwellings or
barns. Tho main objection heretofore
to weapons of this character-the
high price-is obviated in Utley's in?
vention; the cost being very low-less
than an ordinary bird gun. We have
been supplied with one by Messrs.
Agnew, for'which they will pleaso
accept our thanks.
CASU.-Our terms aro strictly cash.
