'The convention of colored oitizens
of Georgia, recently held iu Atlanta,
to tako into consideration a project for1
en ?extensive .emigration of their peo?
ple to States' further West, resulted in
no definite aolion. It was gotten up, i
no doiibt, for the purposes of agitation
and in order to make political capital
"j provoking discontent. Oov. Smith
and Dome other gentlemen gave the
convention some good advice. They
were counselled to reflect earofoily
upon tho advantages they already en?
joyed in Georgia, before they throw
them away to seek imaginary blessings
nndor moro difficult cirenmstanoes.
The colored man in Georgia, where he
is in a minority in the government,
and-exerts bat little control over it, is
mach better off In property and oou
tentment than whore, as in South Ca?
rolina, Louisiana and Flor id u, he is in
the ascendant. Tho discontent which
has been expressed comes mainly from
colored and other politicians, who
wish to livo upou tho opportunities
which commotion will give them,
rather than upon the rosults of honest
labor. Tho&u agitatora are nut frieudd
of the prosperity and progress of their
people. An idea, thrown out by one
of them in a pet, that they will finally
have to leave this country on account
Of the increasing prejudice against
them North and South, may, if insist?
ed on, bo taken np in earnest, and for
.inch reasons as ho may not wholly an?
ticipate. He aays that it baa been ad?
vised that they crowd certain States
and hold them for their special bone
iflt, bat thinks that this policy will
not work well long. "If wo ara going
to inaugurate that policy," be eaya,
"lot as ask tho General Government to
givo n? New Mexico, and lot ns repair
thero. Congress ought to give as New
Mexico, with transportation from any
patt of the ooautry, with six months'
?rations for all who desire to inaku the
^venture. But even that would uot
? servo to thwart the ultimate end* of
Ho?ren in carrying oat tho purposes
for which the negro was brought into
this country, for thero is no more
doubt in my mind that wo buvo got to
? nltimately return to Africa, than that
-there is a God in Heaven.*'
Mr. II. M. Turner, who advanced
these views iu the Convention, was
hardly wise in tho ueo to which ho de?
signed to pat them. The problem
?which he and other advanced men of
'his rane should address themselves to
solve is, how best to promote the spirit
of contentment and how bost to briug
abuut the material prosperity of hid
people. Thuy have fed upon agitation,
trouble and discontout long enough.
They require repose, and the undi?
vided applioutiuo of all their power
of miud, skill of band and strength
o! mnsclo to tho production of
wealth, aud the increase of their
individual uieautf. When they be?
come thrifty farmers and wiu their
own freeholds, and sit under their own
viue and tig tree, they will realize
wli it, it is to ho free in fact as well us
in name. Political independence and
advancement of their families in com?
forts, in education, in morals, will fol?
low iu urdor, and tht y will thus realize
as good oouditiou as can be expected
or may bo desired. If their progress
aod developmout here, uuder ecptal
laws, which givo protection to persons
and property, should bo matched by
the opouing, through travel, commerce
and tho offirti of the groat powers of!
Europe, of tlioir parent country, to '
their visits, they will be fitted by lh?ir
attainments in knowledge, by thtir <
K.ibstantial means, by their tilont no
quuitiom of useful uxpoiieoo^, to i
eater the Held which m:iy thus be
opened, as civilized unionists aud set?
tlers. Th-y will be prepared, at any
rate, to ponder what may bo tho lead?
ings and teaohiuga of Providence.
And should they f sol oalled npqn or be
impelled nltimately to retaro to tho
home of their ancestors, to take buck
an impress of the high civilization to I
which they were born and in which
they have been bred, their loDg exile
will bo found to liavo boen a blessing I
in disgniso. It h fashionable to decry
what, id culled hi ivory, hat bluvery had
its unos, even to those subject to its
power. It was aii education in habits,
in pbyaioal development, and in no
little degree iu moral;!, intelligence,
urafts nnd mauuerd. The habit of toil,
tho powor of endurance, woio useful to
the Israelite) aa wall as tho learning
whioh thoy had imbibed Lorn their
task-masteia, the Egyptians. Tho era
of emancipation in having ibl u..jj top. j
Tba Amerlotn Afrionp, who bav boon
subject to the iwo ihflaenaea, oauuot
be compared with any natdvdfi iu of
ficiency ia any direction, so im?
measurably superior are they. They
will Lifc?u?j? capable of even much
more, if they go quietly ulong fulfilling
the'duties of the proseut and; leaving'
to time and Providence the' develop-'
aient of their future destiny. Above
all thing*, they should eschew Agita?
tion and .settle down to quirt lifo and
steady employment.
Why Not Ittporil Wity Not luvend?
iu the proceedings uf the Houso ol
Representatives for Monday, we ob
servo that Mr. Freeman introduced a
resolution that, in consequence, as re?
ported, of grave irregularities existing
in the managemeut of tbe affairs of the
assets of the Bank of the State, sinco
the appointmeut of tho last receiver,
a joint oommitteo of tho House and
Sonato be appointed to investigate the
financial oondition of these assot*, &o.
A similar couenrrent resolution, intro?
duced by Mr. Bostou, which requires
tho receiver to mako a report of tho
condition of tbo affairs of the Bunk,
*&o , was adopted and ordered to be
sent to tho Senate. In the Senate
proceedings, we find two resolutions to
the same effect. Looking at these re?
iterated demands of tbe (ionoral As?
sembly to have light upon thia in
torestiu<< Bubjcct, we woudcr what ia
tho reason Mr. Puffer does not come
forward and promptly afford it. Yes?
terday, we learn that tho Senate re
fused to adopt tho concurrent resolu?
tion which came from tbo House. Wo
wonder agaiu, what reasons there can
be in tho minds of tbo Senators to
bide and hush op this matter.
Pending tho discussion, yesterday,
of a bill to amend an Act to regulato
tho sale of intoxicating liquor.-, Mr.
Bentty, of York, the Nestor of tho
House, made a capital point against
tbo inconsistency of passing a resolu?
tion to exclude tho salo of all liquors
from tbo State Honsc and grouuds,
nud yet giving a lditiond licenso and
privilege to tho traffic among tho peo?
ple, whoso homes it invades in tbo
most fearful forms. U.o indulged in a
short but telling disquisition upon iu
temperance, which ho described as tLc
most universal, all-pervading und re?
morselessly destructive evil of the!
times. From tbe days of Sir Matthew
Hale, who pointed out its connection
with crime, to tbe present, it has ueou 1
the source of untold crime, wrong and
suffering. As to the law it?olf, passed
only last March, and just now re?
ceived and understood iu the Counties,
ho saw no necessity uud no advantage ,
in altering it. If was well enough ad
it stood. The constant nlter'ttious!
and amendments of laws lead to con- j
faeinu und misunderstandiug. Tho j
best Ui.d surebt way to secure tho re- j
sped of tho people is to puss good
law?, transact the meesssary public
business and go home.
He was in the bubtt of giving advico
to the colored people in bin County.
Qu hummed up his counsel to them j
nudes three heads: That they should |
got a home, if it bo but oun aoro of I
ground; acquire whatever education
was possible for themselves and for
their children, and remember tbe in.to
front which they bud bueu digged r.ud
avoid thy evils tA tl? ? savage condi?
tio!:, the chief of which was intosi- ?
eating drink. It was a pleasant epi?
sode to 1 istcn to this von.u.tble
gentleman, an bo inculcated '.ho lessons
of virtue und raised bis trembling l-'it
etiriicsli voice against a Imbi' which be!
justly regardti as deadly und disastrous!

Tin: Condition or tub South.?
President Urant, in his in* ig ? t >
CongrooJ, tayo:
Your tttteutiou will be drawn t > the
tlOSCltlud condition of uffairs iu some
of the Southern Status. On the 11th
of September last, tho Governor <.1
Louisiana called upon me, as provided
by the Constitution and laws of the
United States, to aid iu suppressing
uutuesiiC violeu?? 10 tout Statu. xliis
cull was mado in view of a proclama?
tion issued on that day by D. li. Poou,
claiming that he was elected Lieuten?
ant Govornor in 1372, aarjcalling upon
the militia of tbe Stnte to assemble ami
drive from power tho "usurpers," as
he designated tho otttcors of tho State
Government. On the next day I issued
my proclumutiou, commaudtug the in?
surgents to disperse within live days
from tho ddto thereof, mil subsc
quently learned that on that day they
had taken forcible posuossiou of the
Stuto House. Stops wi re taken by mo
to support tbe existing und ruoogntaeil
State Govornmcut; but before tbo ex?
piration of tho live days tlio insurrec?
tionary movement was practically
abandon ml, and tho olliceri of tbo
State Government, with minor excep?
tions, resumad their powers and duties.
Considering that the present State ad?
ministration of Louisiana hasbeou the
only government in that S'atu for
noarly two year.", that it has been
tacitly acknowledged und acquiesced
ia ae stiob by Congress, nud more than
once expressly reoogmaed by mo, I re
gardod it aa my olear duty, when
legally called rJpon for that purpose,
to prevent its overthrow by an armed
mob under pretouae of fraod and irre?
gqlaiity in, tho election of 1872. I
Uute berotpforo called the attention of
OdDgiess to this subject, stating that,
on accountpf tho frauds and forgeries
committed at the saidelection, and be
cause it oppeura that retorns thereof
were navcr legally canvassed, it was
impossible to tell thereby who were
chosen; but from tho best sources of
information at my command I havo
always believed the presont State
ufheets received a majority of the
legal votes actually cast at that election.
I repoat what I said iu my special
message of February 2o, 1872, that in
tho event of no action of Congress, I
must oontiuue to recognize tue Go
jveruoaent heretofore recognized by
I me. I regret to say that, with prepa?
rations for the lute election, decided
tudioations appeared iu some localities
in the Southeru Stuten of a determina?
tion, by acts of violence nud intimida?
tion to deprive oittzens of the freedom
of the ballot because of their political
opinions. 13auds of men, ma>kod und
armed, made thoir appearance. White
Leagues and other societies wore
formed. Largo quantities of arms &ud
ammunition were imported uud dis?
tributed to these organizations. Mili?
tary drille, with meuacing demonstra?
tions, were held, and with all, mur?
ders enough were committed to spread
turror among those whose political
action was to he suppressed, if possi?
ble, by these luloleraut aud criminal
proceedings. In souae places colored
laborers were compelled to vote ac?
cording to the wishes of their employ?
ers, under threats of discharge if they
acted otherwise, and (hero uro too
many instances iu which, when these
threats wero disregarded, they were
rernorselotudy executed by those who
made them. I understand that the
fifteenth amendment to tho Constitu?
tion was made to prevent this uud u
liko state of things, aud the Act of
May 31st, with ameudmouts, was pass?
ed to enforce its provisions?the aim
of both being to guarantee to all citi?
zens tho right to voto and protect
them iu tho fruc enjoyment of that
right. Eujoinud by the Constitution
(to take care that tho laws bo faith
tully executed,) and convinced by un?
doubted evidence that violation;) of
said Act bad been committed, and t1.at
wide-spread and flagrant disregard of
it was contemplated, the proper of
lioers were instructed to prosecute the
j offenders, aud troops wert- sitatioued
at convenient points to aid ihef>e of
hours, if neeosaary, iu the performance
of their official duties. Complaints
are mado of this interference by Fede?
ral authority, but if said umuudtnent
and Aot do not provide for such inter?
ference under the circumstances as
above stated, then they uro without
moaning, force or effect, aud the whole
scheme of colored eufranchisumout is
worse than mockery and little butter
than a crime. Possibly, Congress may
tiud it due to truth uud justice to as?
certain by menus of a committee whe?
ther the alleged wrongs to colored
citizens for political purposes are real,
or the reports thereof were manufac
j lured for the occasion.
The whole number of troops iu the
Slates of Louisiana, Alabama, (Jeor
I giu, Florida, South Carolina, North
j Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ar?
kansas, Mississippi, Maryland uud
Virginia, at the tune of the election,
was 4,802. This embraces the garri?
sons of ull the forts from the Delaware
to too Gulf of Mexico. Auotber trou?
ble has arisen in Arkansas. Article 13
of tho Constitution of that Stute,
I (which was adopted in 1868, and upon
I the approval of which by Act of Con
jgreas the State was restored to repre?
sentation ns one of tho States of the
j Union,) provides in effect that before
I amendments proposed to thin Consti
' tutiou shall become u part thereof, thej
tdiall be pii.-n *d by two autieessivo As
I sctublies, and then submitted to and
-aiifvid by ;? majority the cicctora of
j the Statu voting thereon. On I hp 1 Ith
May, 1871, the Govern >r convened an
extia session of the Genera! Assembly
of tiio Slat1, which, on tho 18th of tho
samu mouth, pansod an Act providing
I for a convention to frame :i new Con?
stitution. Pursuant to this act, and ut
jau election held on the iJOih June,
1871, tho convention was approved und
(lelegates were chosen thereto, who
assembled on Ihn lith of last July, mid
j formed a nuw Constitution, the sche?
dule of which provided for tho elec?
tion of an entire new .^et of Statu olli
oers iu a manner cou'.nuy to the thou
I existing election laws of tho State. On
;thcl3-.h October, lb71, this Constitu?
tion, a* therein provided, was submit
: ted to the people for their approval or
I rejection, and, according to Ihn elec?
tion returns, il wan approved by u
j largo majority of those qualified to
: vote thereon, und at tho sauio cleotion
persons were chosen to il 11 all State,
County and township ollices. The
Governor elected in 1872 for tin* term
of four years turned over his oflico to
tlio Gcvornor chosen under tho new
I Constitution, whereupon the Lieu
I tenuut-Govornor, ulso elected iu 1872
for a term of four years, claiming to
j act us Governor, und alleging that
said proceedings, by which the new
I Constitution was made and u new t>ut
of ofliocri elected, were uncnustilu
' tionul, illegal und void, called upon me
I as provided in section 1, article 1. oi
the Constitution, to protect tho State
against dorn''?':'.: violi-uce.
\ ,^As CongreiiS is now investigating the
; political affairs of Arkansas, 1 havo de?
clined to interfere. Tho whole sub?
ject of Executive interference with
sffiirs of a Stut > i-t repugnant to pub?
lic opinion. Tho fooling of 111080 who,
from their official capacity, must bu

or those who must diructj uuleau must
clearly" on tho side of law, ?-r:r?ii iutcr

all necessity for ExecotiTe direction iu

and obsolete. . I iovltn tl{(S altoutiou'

Faith WkXiXi Founded.?In old
times, at the commencement of every
season, it was tba fashion to take a
strong cathartic as a safeguard agains*.
a change of temperature. It was a
worse than senseloss practice. The
people of our day understand the mat?
ter better. Iostoad of depleting tbe
system, they reinforce it. Iu the me?
thod they adopt, they exhibit a wise
discrimination. Instead of resorting
to tbe vitiated stimulants of commerce,
or any of the compounds derived from
them, they put their faith in "the only
absolutely pure invigorant procurable
iu the market?Hustetter's Stomach
Bitters. Their faith is well founded.
Never has any tonio medioine been
prepured with such scrupulous preci?
sion and conscientious care. It is a
vegetable compound of which every in?
gredient id sound, wholesome, and mr
dicinal in tbe true sense of the word.
Now, we have throe prominent national
oompluints. One-half of the adult
population of the Uuited States suffer,
more or less, either from diseases of
tho stomach, derangements of the
liver, or affections of the kidneys. In
no other land nudcr heaven aro these
maladies so general a3 in Ibis country,
and Hosteller's Bitter? is a specific for
them ail, uuloes organic in their ori?
gin, and, therefore, beyond cure. And
let tilOSO who uro fortunate enough to
bo exempt from them ut present, un?
derstand one greit fact, viz: that au
occasional n*Q of this vitalizing tonio
will as certainly ptevent them as tho
sun will prevent the earth from freez
ing where itn genial beams descend.
Tlio Bitters is a genial and excellent
tonio, a moderate ultcrutive, and just
enough uf an aperient to regulate,
without convulsing, the bowels. It is,
therefore, u specific peculiarly adapted
to the pre. out season. D?f-gj 1

of u? do not have but one chance, so
do it up in style. Moreover, it is a
poor compliment to your friends to
invite thorn to your wedding with n
shabby iuvitation. Tbo invitation is
your bo*; it intro* noes tbe life of the
cow couple, nnd should be in tbe best
style. Walker, Evans & Cogswell,
