A Voice from Georgia.
The reader will find on our first page,
the Proclamation of the Governor of Geor
gia, calling upon the people of that State
to elect delegates to meet in Convention
on the 25th November next, to take into
consideration such measures as arc requir
ed by the recent action of Congress em
bodying "a scries of aggressive measures,
all tending to the consummation of one
object the abolition of slavery." In our
view, this is the proper course. The ad
mission of California as a Stale under ex
isting circumstances, will necessarily
bring the slavery question before the
Southern Legislatures and the Fugitive
Slave bill will be forced upon the North
ern and Western Legislatures by the abo
lition and free soil parly noi fad ions
now, for they arc actuated by one spirit,
and abolition and free soil movements arc
"all tending to the consummation of one
object the abolition of slavery. " Con

now act, and then the people decide upon
the proper course to be pursued.

It is the longest session ever held. It has
passed lewer acts than any other, but has
clone more mischief than all others put to
gether It has confiscated the rights of
one section of the Union, to a vast and
valuahle territory, and transferred it to the
other: and has thereby aggravated a sec
tional hostility, which perhaps never can
be allayed. It has done this under the
false pretence of compromise and concilia
tion; and already in less than one month
ofter the deed was done, the tidings of in
creased agitation and discontent have
reached the Capitol from the North and
the South, in tones that appal the perpe

IVilmingion and Raleigh Rail Road
We are told that on last Saturday there
were over iJiiee hundred passengers on
their way South. It was the longest
mail train, we have ever seen on this
Uoal, and all the passengers spcalt in the
highest terms of the comforts and pleas

Wilmington. Wc had the pleasure, last
week of riding in one of the new Coaches
to Wilmington and found that wc glided
along a$ smoothly as wc ever did on our
skates, and with a great deal less bodily
exertion. This road is evidently iloitvg a
fine tmsiivess, and we hope soon to see ihe
stoek of the Company at par. The road
is now, as far as the T. iron has been laid,
equal to any road in the union.
