I have taken some trouble to get at the facts of this matter, and I find that there are but tew negroes occu pying lands - south of Savannah river. Many of thera formerly belonged on the places. In the rear of the city of Sa vannah there are several localities where these people ' have huddled together.

A short distance from the spot several very good cabins had been built, while near the road a number of men were engaged in rearing a gate work that two men could nave accom plished better than six.

His squadron con sisted of only two friifates and a little East ladiaman, and with these he is said to bare whipped lour nrsi-ciass r.ugnsa frigates. Napoleon was about to make him Rear Admiral; but in lf14 he went on the retired list with only the .rank of Captain., In Is 10, whea France was within an ace of going to war with Eng land, Louis Phillippe ihoucht of Capt. Bouvet, sent for hiut to the Tuileries, asked him to dinner and gnve him simul taneously a Rear Adinirul's commission and the cross of a grand' officer of the legion of honor. The apprehended war went off, and Admiral bouvet returned to his marine villa, where, never having been atloat since 1814, he Tegetated till 1BG0, when he died ot the age of 85. His son, a Colonel of marines, christened his two daughters, Amelie and Marguerita, after two English ships which Capt Boa tet boarded. ' When the Emperor and Empress, ist the course of their progress through Brit tany, staid at Brest, in 1H58, the two Misse Bouvet were among the bevy ot young ladies dressed in Tirgin white, as usual on such occasions, wbo were selec ted to scatter flowers under the Empress feet Her majerty was greatly trnck the grace aad beauty of Mile. Amelia Bouvet, and inquired wbo she was. When she was informed that she was the grand-daughter of a naval officer of whom France was proud, she said she would never forget her. And ahe kept her word ip right good style. Admiral Bouvet as we have said, died in 18G0. His son, the colonel, died at Cherbourg two years la ter, and opou that event the Empress sent for Mademoiselle Bouvet to the Taileriee, and created for her the place of reader.' The Empress who ia a great match-maker, (U was she, by the wbt, who found a pretty Scotch wife for that old i fright, Marshal Caorobert.) has ever since been on the lookout for an eligible has band for Mile. Bouvet At last she has hit apoa a young gentleman with 920, 000 a year, in the department of the Aia, and expectations of tO,000 more after the deal of his father and mother, The Empress offered her yoaag favorae , marriage portion, of IOO.OiM but the bridegroom, proud of hi conquest, and content with his own pecuniary resources, declined to receive it, aad her majesty is at this moment looking out for diamonds and elegant articles ot a trou$cau, wnicn a presents, not bearing . any specific money value, cannot be refused. The " happy pair" will pass the honeymoon at the Chateau Xogent, in the Ain, and on their return to Paris, Madame Carette, nee Bouvet, will again be installed in the Tuileries, not in the humble capacity of reader, but as a lady ot bouor. . , Th President and the Democracy. The Washington Conutitulional Union, in a long and carefully written editorial article on the relations of the Democratic party to the President, uses the following significant language : President Johnson is the natural and inevitable leader of the Democracy in the great battle now going on for consti tutional liberty. There is, on the part of the Democracy, the most cordial feel ing toward such Republicans as shall break loose from the trammels of fuction and take their stand with in for the Con stitution. We know no difference be tween such men as Cowan, Dixon, Nor ton, Doolittle, and others oi like charac ter, and our own accepted leaders, iney deserve to be sustained and honored in their positions, and they will be. We repudiate every ideathatlhe Pres ident looks to the formation of a third party to supersede the Democratic or ganization, or that he supposes such a scheme capable of accomplishment, even if it were desirable. Still less can we believe that he cherishes any purpose of so distributing the honors and patronage of his administration that the laborers of the only conservative organization in t he land Bhall be permanently excluded from all participation therein. Rome was not built in a day. The Democracy are not starring for office," nor need they be in a hurry. They and all sensible men know that the President has hardly yet begun to consider, still less to act on these questions;' but we have assurances that he will not overlook the great party on which lie now leans for support.
