TbePowers of the C^eneral
Thereis a fear in the minds of some^people that President Johnson may re^^move Grant from the head of the army.^Congress foresaw the possibility of such^a thing and prevented it at the last ses^^sion by adding to the army appropria^^tion bill a clause providing that:
1.The headquarters of the army shall^be in the city of Washington.
2d.All orders and instructions rela^^ting to military operations, issued by the^President or Secretary of War, shall be^issued through the general of the r rmy,^and in case of his disability through the^next in rank.
3.The general of the army shall not^be removed, suspended or relieved from^command or assigned to duty elsewhere^than at said headquarters, except at his^own request, without the previous ap^^proval of the Senate ; and ^ any orders^or instructions relating to military ope^^rations issued contrary to the require^^ments of this section shall be null and^void, and any officers who shall issue^orders or instructions contrary to the^provisions of this section shall be deem^^ed guilty of misdemeanor in office, and^any officer of the army who shall trans^mit, convey or obey any orders or in^^structions so issued, contrary to the pro^^visions of this section, knowing that^such orders were so issued, shall be lia^^ble to imprisonment for not less than^two nor more than twenty years, upon^conviction thereof in any court of com^^petent jurisdiction.
Thisact was approved by the Presi^^dent under protest, the section we have^quoted l^eiiig the one to which be ob^^jected. It will be noticed that the lan^^guage is more explicit than that of the^tenure bill, under which civil officers are^protected. By evasion and indirect ma^^neuvering, Mr. Johnson got Mr. Stanton^out of the cabinet, but the head of the^army is beyond his reach, and the Presi^^dent is positively forbidden to remove^that officer without the consent of the^Senate. Still further to protect the dis^^trict commanders from, the meddling of^the President, the law compels Mr.^Johnson to transmit his orders and di^^rections through the general, and de^^clares void any order not so transmitted.^Mr. Johnson's way paper is not negotia^^ble until it has the indorsement of Gen.
TheTerritorial Enterpri** and the^Reese River Reveille give details of the^late stage robberv at Desert Wells sta
Marly everv instance, the triumph of! *,on: ^lxt^n miles from V irginia, on the
1oth inst.. by three robbers completely^masked and armed with double barrel^^ed shot guns.
Anhour, more or less, before thearri
theprinciples we espoused. A few such^cases will recur to the mind of any one^of our readers, and propably, uppermost,^^inmost ot them, the famous case of the^Iat^- Major General, George Brinton Mc-^Clelian.
Trueto our history, when the most^superlative apostacv of Andrew Johnson^^l^v^ioj)ed itself, these columns were^heard for iuipeachuient. We had sur^^vived an unparalleled civil war^the^prouder for the struggle and the triumph^We had survived the assassination of a^^ioubly approved President^no jar in^our machinery. The republic could^only be put to one more original and^HfBN test. Could we remove a Presi^^dent for cause by the constitutional^method of im]^eachment I We main^^tained that we could, and that the neces^^sary hour had arrived.
Now.we maintain that when wero^so convinced.the evidence was sufficient^to convince all radical men who inquir^^ed, that the manly.honorable.and consti^^tutional way out of our then present diffi^^culties was through the door of impeach^ment. And we further maintained that^in tin* rase.ns in every one where square,^plain duty is shirked or evaded, that^terajKirary expedients and compromises^are the architects of the greater mis^^fortunes that have !^efallen us.
If.instead of the cowardly enactment^of the tenure of office bill, which, to say^the least, could only be enacted by^standing on the parapet of the constitu^^tion and reaching ove* for authority.the^Congress of the United States had pur^^sued the manly course, which we must^be pardoned for holding, that each mem^^ber knew under his oath was the true^one. of impeachment, we would not be^compelled to stand helplessly by and^see the hopeful tide of reconstruction^rolled back for months as we do to-day.^Sad day when Congress declined to im-^p -arli so flagrant an apostate and quietly^returned to their homes! Let the peo^^ple again, as they did during the cam^^paigns of last fall, declare to their re^^presentatives^^that they must rid the^country of Andrew Johnson as Presi^^dent, or lie superseded themselves next^time.
Havingalways been an ardent sup^^porter of the general policy of Congress,^we claim the right to read them this^emphatic lecture. ^Whom the Lord^loveth hechasteneih.^^Wilkes Spirit of^the Times.
valof the stage the robbers went to the^station and by force compelled the cook^and hostler to have their hands and feet^tied, after which they were put uway^safely into the granary.
Betweenone and two o'clock the stage^came along and the robbers stepped out^of the station, and with their guns cov^^ered the driver and passengers (eight),^and ordered them to get down, which^they did, one at a time, one of the rob^^bers tying their hands behind their^backs while the other two kept the guns^pointed at them.
Therobbers then ^went through-' the^passengers, securing trom $600 to $1.000,^but taking no watches, destroying or^taking no papers, nor exhibiting any^extraordinary ruffianism, but ofFerirg to^give the passengers food and water.
Thestage tressure box was broken^open by an ax, but the robbers were dis-^apj^ointed therein.
Thestage was detained about three^hours, when the driver and passengers^were untied and allowed to depart. The^robbers expressed disgust at thepmerty^of the passengers and said ^it would not^pay them to run round the country to^pick up such poor crowds,^ that if they^had made a good haul they would have^left the country, but as it was they^would be obliged to try again.
Thenames of the passengers were^Prof. Whitney, J. P. Clough. W. EL Da^vis. Lieut. G. W. Walker. F. Haskins,^W. Clark, S. Stocker and a lady.
Therobbers took a horse and blankets^each and left in the direction of the^Truckee.
Afterthe robl^eis were gone, the host^^ler rolled to where the cook lay, who^gnawed off^ the cord by which the hostler^was fastened ami they thus'freed them^^selves. The cook then rode to Virginia^with the news.^S. L. Tdenraph.
ARemarkable Ocean Race.
1he San Francisco Times notices a^remarkable ocean race between two clip^^pers from New York to that place:
Twoclipper ships^the Gov. Morgan^and the Prima Donna^sailed together^from the port of New York on the 14th^of February. They were towed outside^of Sandy Hook, side by side, so near to^^^ach other that conversation was main^tained by the two commanders. Large^^urns were wagered by tbe friends of^these ships on their respective favorite^reaching this port first. The vessels^rTo^^ed the equator, in the Atlantic, on^the same day, although not in the same^longitude. They entered the straits of^Mai re on the same day and came out^^f them on the same day. They crossed^the equator in the Pacific on the same^day and in the same longitude. Both^^hips arrived at San Francisco on the^^ame day within three hours of each^*W, after a race of 16,000 miles. These^wets demonstrate the accuracy that has^been attained in the science of naviga^^tion, and also proves the reliance which^^ay be placed upon the wind and cur^^rent charts prepared under the direction^^* Mr. Maury, of the naval observatory.

Whereas,Information has from time to time^reached me relative to illicit traffic on the part^of divers persons trading with the various^tribes of Indians within this jurisdiction, and^that said unlawful trading has created disaf^^fection amongst the Indians, and murders and^thefts are constantly occurring ;
