"The Reconstruction in were ob
served in Georgia up tb the hair when
the Legislature deprived certain parties
of their seats by reason of race and color.-
Up to that hour all their acts were legal
and binding, including the election of the
United States Senators. The act lately
passed by Congress, and under which we
are now acting, is simply amendatory of
the Reconstruction laws, so far as Geor
gia In concerned, and the duty of Gen.
Terry is simply to carry out the amenda
tory acts. In his opinion all the Legis
lature can do is to commence to do right
where:they left off, and commenced do
ing wrong. All laws they passed previ•
ous to that time hold good, unless repealed
in the regular way. And as for the Sen
ators, they clearly cannot annul the elec
tion of those whom they elected, acd
who now bold the proper certificates
before they violated the reconstruction
laws. In a word, the present Senators
hold good, as do all the laws. He states
that Gen. Terry is after no office, but he
will do his duty promptly and fairly, and
his instructions to him are to study the
law and act upon its literal sense and
meaning. - Gen. Terry will not have any
thing to do with the partisan squabbles
there, and he has so informed numerous
parties who have tried to enlist him on
their particular side. If the Legislature
have a quorum, they can go on, and pass
nto Amendment, &c., and soon
be admitted i the Union of States."
