Otlice next door to Ensor's Drug Store, aug l4tf The J'.r fmlsion of the Colored Georgia Jciinltitorx. The declaration by a large majority (80 to 23) of the Georgia llouso of Representa tives (if tho ineligibility of the newly electd colored members twenty. Ave iu number followed by obliging them to relinquish their seats, has caused considerable surprise, there boing a vague impression prevalent that tinder the reconstruction acts the colored men in the reconstructed States are eligible to oflice ; and whether this were so or not, the expediency of depriving them of their seats, where they have beetl duly elected, seemin; so open to doubt as to render it Improbable that any such aotioa would be taken. The gronnd on which the legislative majority base their action, the idea of which is said to have originated with ex-tlovernor Brown, the defeated radi cal candidate for Sonator, is that neither under the new constitution of Georgia nor the fourteenth amendment to the Constitu. tion of the United States Is there any pro vision for cilice being held by the colored man. It is true that the declaration of fun damental principles composing the first article of the new constitution of the State of Georgia piovides) (section 2) that "all persons born rr naturalized in the United States, and resident in this htate, are tieretiy declared citizens of this State, and no law shall be made or enforced which ehall abridge the privileges or immunities of ciii r.nns of the United States or of this State." The first section of the fourteenth amend, ment lays down the samo principle in the same words: " All persons born or naturalized in tho United Slates, and subject to the jurisdic tion thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. JVo iV(e Khali make or enfurceany luw Much shall abrid it anu ttririleaes or immunilien of citums of the United Stales," d-c. While It Is admitted that tho elective franchise is one of tho privilege conferred by tho State constitution, it is denied that either citzenship or the riirbt to voto carries with it the right to Hold ollico, as is illustra ted in tho ineligibility of naturalized citi zeus to hold the ollioe of President, or of natives to hold that office till thirty-live, or of either natives or naturalized citizens to hold a seat In the Senato of the United State till thirty, or In the House of Rep, resentathes till twenty.fltre. Moreover, th proceedings of tho couvention that formed tho State constitution are appealed to for the purpose of showing that it actually re. fused to allirm the title of colored citizens to seats, in proof of which roferenco wal made to the expunging, by a vote of 121! t'l 12, of a section which, as originally reported, provided thut "all qualith'd electors, and: none others, shall be eligible to any ollict in this State, unless disqualified by the c n. slitiition of this Stato or by the Constitution! of the United States." The Macon (Gv Telogruph contends that the rejoctioa 0' this clause, considered In connection wit! the re-enactment of tho previons yodo t Georgia, " re-estub!is!id ail tlio old loeinlt tion of the State not inconsistent w ith til Constitution of the United Elates and f Georgia, and Included the business so f as n.g'o I'lllco-boldiiig in G"orzia undc that constitution was concerned." The action by which the colored nion. bers wore deprived of their seats was nn, apparently, a party one, more than half tin republican member voting with tho Wi-. irity to declare tho blacks incompetent o vote on Die question of their right to seas in the llouso. This exclusion, which tra ferrcd the mnj irity from the Radical to tie Dxmooratio side, could not have bam fleeted without Republican oo o( e'stim, though It is shrewdly surmised that ibis m a meie Radical trick to make a rase fo a S-ptombcr sessioi of Congress, and tint the Georgia Democrats, with singular I n p"citv, have fallen Into tho trap. The pr eceding ia one which can bo readily in verted to the purpo of party and sectiin allMii, aud the worst use in that (breot .11, as well as to excite fresh distrust aiumest tho blacks against the whiles, is bke t be madd of it. Some of the leading lUileal journal are sole I v exercised on the sub !, tho New York Times professing to re;ard It a step In the direction of the war of rices, andtheNowY.uk Tiihune availing it,.n of the occasion to wallow in one of itanonr genial puddles of unclean abuse, nr'.her of them bearing in mind that Iu their own State tho colored men are not allow.J to votn without a property qnahllcstion, lor to hold i ("ice, whether they have pmpe-ty or not, and that if such a thing is not I eon diet with .the fourteenth cotstitttional amendment In New York it canscarody be so in Georgia. Still, It is Insisted tint Con. gress shall ss.emhlei, and proceed onm more to reconstruct It reconstruction, Ur as the State of Georgia Is concerned How this Is to be done without occnpylig m .re time In the process than the meniM-r of Oongr are able to spare at tins moment fi out tho presidential canvass, and running the risk beside of committirg son jresli legislative blunder which will mo-8 ' than counteract the one llo-y seek to rnuedv, is not easy to surmise. It would so a at llrt sight that Georgia, having been pit; back in the Union, can uo mere be put oi( now by Congress than any other Stat, b.t a Utdi. cal sheet in Georgia suggests that Congress may take the view that if the cohrod mew. BRISTOL, VIRGINIA & hers of the Georgia Legislature are not en titled to seats, the ratification of the con. stittulonal amendment by that State, which could not l ave been adopted but for their admission to seats, has not boen legal and sufficient, and consequently Georgia is not entitled to representation in Congress or to vote Id the presidential election, and may be remanded to military government. It is very dool'tful, however, whothcr Congress would bae any legislative action it might take upon the assumption that the colored member are not entitled to seats, thereby stultifying itself for admitting Georgia upon the exactly opposite hypothesis, though it has tho power to punish her If it choose, and might not be very particular about the process. It would, however, be no punish, ment to put her again tinder military rule, fur it appears that tho most quiet of tho Southern States are those which are radi cally ke(t out of tho Union, whilst the In troduction of thorn upon reconstruction principles seems, In almost every State, to be the signal of political and social convul sions and anarchy. The events in Georgia add another to the many illustrations of the completf failure of the Radical reconstruc tion system. A llkle with. Gen. Lee Through the Moiintaitts, Callahan's, Alleghany Co., ) September 3, lbliS. Wlill'? awaiting tho arrival of a staee at tho pla;e bearing tho above Ilibernic name I take advantage of half an hour to jot down a lew aotes by the way through tho Alio. ghanlH. This morning I had for awpny nnnn tii voyatje no less distinguished person ages t .an Gen. Rob't E. Lee and Mr. C. M. Conral, of Louisiana, and other gentlemen who Us evidently traveled a great deal. Besides these a number of others made up onrc rapany. A Dr. II. M. Banks, of tho Deraicratic State of New Jersey, occnplcd the s-at with Gen. Lee; your correspond ent stt with Mr. Conrad, the remainder be ing ti the front seat. Passing through a coun ry noted for tho grandeur nnd maenll cenra of its monntain scenery, the princi pal tiplc of conversation was upon this sub ject and General Lee, besides evincing a thouugh knowledge of the country, was the principal authority upon all tho different speiies of trees, their nature, &e. Mr. Con rad was very loquacious and olten a little atntslng ; but oace, when politioi was broiched, ho poured a broadside into the Radcal party; said they were rapidly mak ings despotism of the Government; that the tendency was that way any how ; and h lad scarcely a hope that even the elec tioi of Seymour and Blair would avert an enpire but temporarily. Such had been tti effect of universal suffrage in all of the Eiropean republics from Rome to the pres ort day. ' Gen. Lee was as dignified and Impressive usual. He spoke Ireely with Dr. Banks uion all subjects, and seemed anxious to oovinco thai gentleman of the great atri. ciltural resources of the State, dwelling particularly upon Its capacities for grape cilture. The intimacy he displavs with tlio V!rlous varitles of grape, their qualities, tie clashes of wines and the qualities that nnltl be distilled from them, would do iredit to the great French manufacturers. In the course of the conversation Dr. tanks mentioned something abont tho an. icxation of Mexico, when the Gen. inquir- I d if he had read articles in the Herald re. ently written upon that subject by a Mr. Cooper, aud did ho know who Mr. Cooper was? The Dr. had heard of the articles re. j ferred to, but was not aide to enlighten tho General as to the antecedents of Mr. Coop, er. Here, unfortunately, this subject was dropped, though yonr correspondent pro. duocd a copy of the Herald with an editori. al article upon Mexico iu connection with the late visit of General Rosecrans to the White Stilphnr Spring", Tho General then began to speak of other matters, and the political condition of the country boing un der discussion shortly afterwards, for the first time be let slip an opinion. The dem ocratic represenUHVij of Now Jersey was enlhusias'.io as to the certain election of Seymour and Blair, and in stroDg terms denounced the enormities of tho Radical party, to which the General responded in a quiet but forcible manner that ",f the Democratic or (correcting himscll) the Con servative clement did not triumph in No. vember the country would be ruined." Can didates, tlio (ioneral seemed to think, made but little difference ; principle were tho Issues In the campaign, and ho had an or. dent wish for the success of those that were based upon tho constitution. Ho spoke of tho bond-holders, and illustrated in his calm, quiet way how easy it was to specu late upon the public through this boud sys tem, which he thought iniquitous. As it he had lorgotten himself, or tho subject was distastlul to him, Im quickly introduc ed other aud perhaps to him more interest ing matter. Ia this way the journey passed, a mixed or regular stage co.cli conversation nucu- pyin the remainder of our tinio until wu reached "CaEaehau'a." But tw incllents occurred by tho way worluy of note. A crowd of Bovj in Bine, ome halt a di.n, evidently iuticiitint on tho tuouutuiu side, attracted the attention ol tno pariy as we drove past. r, Uoma'i woii'iereu wnai they could be doing in that section of tho country, when General Lee said they were a part of Judno Harrison's body guard iu Union, liunroo c nitty. "What," said Mr, Conrad, "a judgi have a body guard 1 It's not possible no requires a body guard t" "He think he docs," said one of the par. ty smiling, "and has one constantly." Tins was then explaiued by another gen tleman iu a very corioctand impartial man ner, as I know. Some persons allege that he la uudor iudicliueiit even now, whdu ex eio sing the functions of judge by the grace of G ivernor. Boieman,. lor ho was never elected. The other incident was quite indilt'. rent, and illustiateu iu a striking manner the great love aud respect tho pooplo en. tertain for General Lee. Some ladles in a parsing carriage caught a glimpse of tho Goueial. They stopped immediately, call, ed alter our stage, had it hailed, anil though it was pouring dowu rain at the time ran down to grap the hand of the great chief, tain. Soon after we reached our preset! loca. tion, and bere the Gucral left Us. t'jr, of A'. 1'. JlerMd. MKKTIKU (IV lUll.HOAD Ol'lII'IAI.i.

The minority of the committee of tho lennessee l.egislatnre to whom was re. ferred that portion of Gov. Browlow'a mes sage, ndating to Ku.Klux organisations and tlielr alleged outrages, have roported at immense length, making some wholesale statements, and alleging that over one hun. dred nd eighty murders have been com mitted within six mouths, making an aver- ego of one a day; that bouses have been burned, and that Union men have been forced to lieu for their lives, and dara not return to their homos, unless some action hsiking fo their i otection Is taken by the Stale l-icgislatur. J no report I decided ly se.nsatir.nal. It savs that the number of utitrnges that have been perpetrated In ma ny counties of Middle and West Tennessee during the past few months, have been so numerous nnd of such nu aggravated charac ter an almost bslllcs Investigation. Iu these counties, it is alleged, a perfect reigu of terror exists. A lurge amount of testimony Is submit, ted by the committee, and they close by urging that the Governor should bo invest- ed Willi full power to call out snch a mili tary force as may be required to secure ol" dience to the laws, and say that if such a force shall bo necessary, the ref ponsihill. ty wl'l rest upon those who have violated the b.ws and refuse obedience to the con stituted authorities of tho State. The statements are similar to the repre. sentatioi s made by Governor Wariiiouth, of Louisiana, soino weeks ngo, and cvideut ly with the siiiie intention. If there are so many murders us represented, it does not seem by any means Unit, radicalism is free from them, for the majority, andsrme of tho most horrible thai are noticed from time to time in the papers, are by negroes, un der tho mischievous and disorganising in. fluences ol radical desperation in the tin. fortunate States of the South. The ma jori ty of the Tennessee committee join in no such representations, and do not believe it necessary to call out any mllilia. Iiallimore Sun. EXCLIHIO.S- I P THK Gkokoia Ci lorkd Lvhici.atobs. We said a few dtys ago that we regarded tho at-iiou of the Georgia Leg islature in expelling the negro members from its b .il v ul this critical moment in our o Hairs, though entirely right iu itself, as a piece of recklessness or folly that Is inexcu sable, and instigated, uo doubt, by tho Radi cals themselves. These views of ours are now fully confirmed by the most reliable authority, uud disputed by none. The Washington correspondent of the Baltimore tiazeite, thus discloses the whole maltur.

"The action of the Georgia House of Delegates iu excluding negroes from that body on the ground ot ineligibility has pro duced no surprise here, as it was known here in udvsnce that lhe movement, would he made, under the dictation of the Radical committee of Congressmen, who consider that such action would he a trump card in the Noi l hern canvass, as showing tho Kidi- cal party was nol favorable to tugio equal ii v. It required a good deal ..f backing und till, lug bol'oro tho carpel.bajgers of Georgia could bo induced to move in the matter, as they professed to sec in it nofiing 1 lit their own political overthrow. In resisting the proposition they urged that tho negroes would easily understand that they were bein; used merely as tools and would turn from them in dugtist and join the Democ racy. This loss, however, was regarded insignificant when' compared to tho great advsntngu aiisirg to the Radical party in the Norm to be able to demonstrate to the masses that the Democratic spcaki rj lied when tbey charged their oppouenis with fa Vol ing negro rquslitv. This is the key to tho action of thu Georgia Legislature, and iho Radical wire-woikers are t buckling over it as ouo of the sinai lest tricks of the can vass.

The author of the following lines Is un known, although a reward of fifty guinea was oll'ered for bis or her discovery. They were found on a skeleton In the Mnsotim of the Royal College of Surgeons, Lincoln' Inn, Loudon : Behold this mini 'Twas a skull, Once of ethereal spirit full; This narrow cell was life's retreat, This space was thought's mysterious seat, What beauteous vision filled this spot! What dreams of pleasure long forgot! Nor hopo nor joy, nor lovo nor fear, Have left one truce of record hero. Beneath this moldering canopy Once shown the bright and busy eye ; But start not at the dismal void ; If s icial love that eye employed If with no lawless fire It gleamed, But thro' the dew of kindness beamed j That eye shall be forever bright, When stars and sun are sunk In night. Within this hollow cavern hung The resdy, swift, and tuneful tongue ; If falsehood's honey it disdained, And where it could not praise wsschain M, If bold in virtue cause it spoke, Yet gentlo concord never broke, This silent tongue shall plead for thee When time unveils eternity. Say, did those lingers delve the mine 1" Or, without envied rubies shine t To hew the rock or wear lhe gem Can little now avail to them. But tf the pagti of truth they sought, Or commit tu the mourner brought, These bauds a richer meed sball claim ' Tbun all who wait on wealth or fame. Avails it not whether bare or shod, These feet the depth of duty trod f If Irom the ball of ease tbey fled To seek miction' humblo shod ; If grandeur's guilty bribe they spurned, And home to virtue's cut returned, These feet with angel's wings shall vlo, And tread the palace of the sky. Authors of the Apostles' CreetL Tho precise origin of this simnte and most ancient of all the creeds is involved in s line uncertainty, and has long boon a mat ter oi much dispute among learned theolo gians.

It is said that the Twelve assembled incotincll belore dispersing them selves to preach the (impel throughout the world, to frame the svnibol or watchword of the Christian Church ; and it will be in. tercsting to many ot our readers to know the Apostlo to whom each article is ascrib ed, lhe tradition I follows:.
