Kx-t.overnor Brown, of (irar?ia. oa Reconstruction. Ex-Governor Brown, of Georgia, In a tbree1 column Jet'er, re v ie w* tI'e political situation of the country, advi'irig the people of Georgia to accept ike term* imposed by the bill recently passed by both bouses of Congress. He says : 1 consider it the duty ?f the Governor ot Georgia to cull the legislature together without delay, aud to recommend the pas-age of an act ailing a cou vention of the people ot this >tate to so change our S'ate constitution as to provide tor universal suffrage, in conformity to tlie measure which has passed Congress, known as the Sherman amendment, and to provide for tbe early election of a legislature which will adopt the constitutional amendment in accordance with said requirement. We now have the assurance of Congress, in the passage of this bill, that tbis bill saall settin me question of our admission. We shall rexer get better terms. Let us comply with them, and be ready to be presented in the next Congress as soon as poss'ble. I respectfully siu'gi st that the people of tne several counties of this State who tavwr tbe proposed action hold public meetings with as little dH?y as possible, and org* upon the Governor to cou vens tbe I.egisla'ure and recommend them to take prompt action. The Governoraiiri legislature were elected before the < i-stitn'i'-iial amenrtnu-n*. w:n proposed, and i expecttully submit that it is their imperaI ' \e duty in the present condition of the country to t ike the necessary steps to refer this qui?tion to the people a*, tbe ballot box. Tbe ini'St appropriate mode of doing this is to order an i lection oj ueiegate* to a convention to act i | on the proposition now submitted by Contress. T tus tbey cannot wi'h propriety refuse it the people demand it Let the people If we reject tbe terms proposed in tbe Sherman bill 1 confess 1 see no hope for tbe future Should w? accept them 1 trust the example | of < i eorgia mav be folio w?d by the other States, and that this vexed question may soon be permanently settled upon the liest terms which we may ever be able to get. I am aware of the rapidity of the changes which Wi*are required to make, and of the natural prejudices which our people entertain against negro suffrage, but we should not forget in yielding to an inevitable necessity that these people were raised among us and naturally sympathise with as. Their conduct during the war proved tbis. If tiien we treat them kindly, pay them their wages promptly, and in all respects deal fairly by them, we thai I rarely have cause to complain of their re'u*-al to respect our wisnes or consult our interests at tlje ballot box. As tbe questions wlnvh I have discussed are of vital importance to the whole country, and a* 1 do not wif-h to be misunderstood or misrepresented. 1 respectfully request of tb- editor of each newspaper who comments upon my letter to giv e it entire to his readers. This ie due aiike to me and to the public." Canada. THE HKW COSKKDSK ATIOR BILL. Ah advance copy of tue Confederation bill to be introduced into tbe Imperial Parliament bae been received.
