Approval of the efforts of the Presi

liberty by the revolutionizing of the
Government, and to restore the Cnion of
the States : and of all that be has done
to defend the Constitution and to main

We cordially accept the nomination
of Kxerson Etheridoe for Governor.
We sincerely believe that it is, upon tbe
whole, the best that ould have been
made. Whatever bis former opinions
and actions, Mr. Etheridoe deserves
iuiinortal honour for bis defiance of
tyranny, his bold assertion of the right
of free speech, and bis brave refusal to
submit to military usurpation. Of his
eloquence and intellect there can he but
one opinion. He it- well worthy of tbe
office of Governor of Tennessee.
We do not cavil at tbe resolutions of
the Conservative Convention j but not
meaning to be misunderstood, we place
our own platform at the be; d of this
column. Mr. Ftheridge stands on
enough of it to make him acceptable to
us : and in what respects we differ, each
exercises' the right of private judgment.
We belong to no party, except so far as
its principles commend themselves to
our reason ; but we do not refuse to act
with that cue on whose success the res
cuing of tbe country from the Isittom
less pit of ruin depends, liecause we do
not, in some particulars, think its course
of action right or wise.
same breast, that war of horrors, with
Its merciless cruelties, its plundenngs,
burnings, assassinations, its hideous se-
, queuces. Is it inexplicable?
The field of inquiry is so vast as to
confuse and oppress us. What path
shall we follow ?
Iet him wiio inquires go back to tbe
i beginning ! Iet him ask history how
the Constitution was made and the
Union formed ! Lt bim learn whether
I it ever tnu a I num. It us duiiUusion
I ner the Past ! I-et us see how far we
have been deluded by chimeras and the
),n -'ifr with which Time clothes even
I selfiihnees and tbe meannesses of ambi
tion ! Let us inquire what features in
the F'ederal Constitution were intended
or calculated to ensure permanency and
stability, the health, prosperity and eou
I tinuance of the Republic; in what respects
it wa- defective as a means of securing
! these ; and how it has, in its excellencies,
j been departed from in practice. Then
we may inquire what grave errors were
I committed in tbe management of affairs,
i by the people and their servants, of
which, in any degree, the present evils
are the results.
It will be profitable to inquire into the
practice under both Constitutions during
the war. We shall, perhaps, then be
able to learn whether either bad suffi
cient vitality, sufficient energy, to asoape
annihilation during great convulsions
and immense struggles. We shall learn
what causes of National disaster and dis-
I solutiou are still in action. The inquiry
I will of Itself make known how we may
avert the ruin, if it be till possible ; and
may mark here and there a shoal for
! other nations to avoid.
This inquiry, so far as it involves the
j character an i conduct of public men
! and parties, past and present, should
I possess all the cold impartiality of his
I lory. If the expression of a just indig
; nation should sometimes seem harsh,
the miseries that surround and over
' whelni us, and are the consequences ol
what we censure, shall excuse it. It is,
indeed, the peculiar province of history,
and its most valuable office, to trace the
: causes of the decliue and fall of nations.
In this, as in all else, to err and mistake
is to injure ; and tbe historian should be,
not the advocate, but the judge. Vitu
peration and indiscriminate censure as
little become bim, as to be the apologist
for weakness and imbecility, for inca
pacity, or for the criminal adoption of a
dangerous and unsound policy, as the
means of conciliating popular favour.
History should accuse the act, and deem
the criminal beneath its notice.

There is a possibility that the sena'e
may reconsider its action on the question

Count Wydebbruck has warmly
thanked tbe secretary of state for the
kindness and promptness with which he
acted in the request of the Austrian em
peror relative to Maximilian.
In the supreme court to-day the
chief justic; deliver an opin
ion of the court the case
of the state of Mississippi vs. An
drew Johuson and E. O. C. Ord, on mo
tion for leave to file the bill as follows :
A motion was made some days since iu
behalf of Ute state of Mississippi for
leave to file a bill In behalf of this state,
praying this court to perpetually enjoin
and restrain Andrew Johnson and E. O.
C. Ord, commanding the district of Mis
sissippi and Arkansas from executing, or
in any manner carrying oui, certain ;
acts of congress. The sets referred to
' are those of March 21 and Sti, 1867,
common v known as reconstruction acts. !
The attorney general objected to the
ieave asked upon the grounds that no
bill which makes the president atiefend
aut and seeks an injunction against him,
to restrain the performance of his duties,
should be allowed to be filed in this
This point has been fully argued, and
we will now dispose of it. We shall
limit our inquiry to the question pre
sented to this objection without express
ing an opinion on the broader issues dis
cussed in the argument, whether in any
case the president may lie required by
process of this court to perform a pureiy
ministerial act required by law, or may
be held amendable in any case otherwise
than by impeachment for crime. The
single point which requires considera
tion i- ;i:i-: Can the president be re
strained from carrying out an aet of con
gress alleged to be unconstitutional ?
It is assumed by the counsel for the
state of Mississippi that the president, in
the execution of the reconstruction acts,
is required tc perform a new ministerial
duty. In this assumption there is, we
think, a confounding of the terms minis
terial and executive, which are by no
means equivalent in import. A ministe
rial duty, the performance of which may,
in proper cases, be required by the head
of a department, by judicial process in
one respect, to which nothing is left to
discretion, is a simple definite duty,
arising under tbe conditions admitted
or presumed to exist or imposed by
law. Case of Marbury vs. Madison,

not the efTects of Northern usurpation,
liate and revenge alone. We also have
had some part in causing theru, and if
we lay the flattering unction to our souls,
that they are in no degree, or in a small
degree only, owing to our own ill-conduct
and want of wisdom, we shall in uo
wise profit by the awful lessons we are
now receiving, nor be able to halt even
for a moment in our headlong career to
ward tha hell of ruin that yawns ahead
of us. amnug the breakers on which the
Hhip of Htate is driving.
A war so unnecessary, and calamities
so frightful, ran only have been the couse-
juencee, either ol some inherent defect
in our system of (rjvernmeut, or of in
competency and incapacity iu the man
agement of our affairs. It is useless to
go about to evade or put out of sight this
truth. The malady it internal. No
force or fraud from without has oppressed
us, nor had tbe senility which oomes to
nation as it does to men, with its dotage
and loss of vitality, overtaken us. We
die while we are yet young ; and yet it
does Dot seem that the Gods love us.
Now, while ' the slings and arrovs of '
outrageous fortune ' vex the people, when
uer aud remorseless ruin has overtaken
every one, and death is in every house
and a skeleton at every table, now,
when calamity sharpens the wit of men
aud disposes them to admit that all has
not been managed well, and that either
their institutions were not so perfect, or
their public men so capable and wise, or
themselves so difficult to deceive, as they
bad imagine-. . . is the proper time
foaos to whom the people will Bstea,
and to whom it is fit they should listen,
to inquire uuto hal causes it is that these
itreadful disasters are owing, and to tell
those on whom the fury of the storm is
beating, iu what respects they must -cbauge
their course?, amend their insti
tutions of government, and avoid the
I ., - ' -
ittpeuuou oi cue iblhi ciior-. inai are UoW
i-iMling them so dear.
Nor is the future less gloomy and om
inous for tbe Northern States, although
they have subjugated us, and linked the
dead corpse of tbe (South to their living
fcsly. after tbey have borne it in tri
umphal procession with bacchanal shout
ings of intoxicated joy. There are victo
ries that injure more than defea's. The
future is full, to them, of threatening,
spectral shapes of disaster. Bankruptcy,
foreign war, internal hatreds, a bell of
fire thinly crusted over, new dissensions,
separations, strifes, new rivers of blood,
repeated decimation... new ligbtniugs of
the red deserved wrath of ;od, tbe cor
roding stains of innocent blood upon the
soul, tbe insensible horrid lapse iu'o tbe
most hideous of despotisms, all the
Dantesque horrors of tbe infernal regions
that the shades of dead nations, tor
tured, inhabit, all these stare upon
them, out of tbe grim, silent darkness of
the future days. We write for tbeni
also ; for we are human and mourn for
the woes of humanity. We pity and do
not bate them ; aud we pity them tbe
more, because the bitter cup bas been
filled to the brim by themselves, and it
is their own hand that holds it to their
lips. (So Uod punishes nations.
And though tbe doom of both tbe
Korti4Bd South may be sealed ; though
one is subjugated, and it seems fated that
tbe other is to be mined by victory, there
n still a future, and there will be people to
It is only in government and states
manship that incompetency and failure
constitute the highest recommendation,
and are the most certain means to secure
the coutiuuai.ee of popular favour.
There, only, the master is trusted to
navigate the ship in a tempest, i- ..-
lie had not foresight sufficient to prepare
for the storm, or kuowledge enough to
keep his reckoning. There, only, men
are deemed best fitted to secure victory,
became they have so blundered and
mismanaged as to place the army iu a
false position aud make defeat inevita
ble. We need not be surprised, there
fore, when a country continues iu power
and place many men distinguished only
by the errors they have committed.
The blind are always fond of being led
by the blind. To be able to see more
clearly aud further into tbe future than
those around you, is lo wrong and insult
them, by impeaching their wisdom.
They revenge themselves by preferring
to you those who are as short-sighted
aud mole-eyed as themselves.
Nor are meu more capable of govern
ing ihemselves now, than they 'were
tweuty centuries ago. The general 'dif
fusion of ustful knowledge ' none the
more lit men to be free. The Swiss
were a freer people, when, unlettered,
they overthrew the Spearmen of Charles
the Bold, than they are now. l-adiug,
writing, arithmetic, and l'oor Kichard
do not make freemen. A free press,
whose journals are houses of prostitu
tion of the thought,' is the enemy and
not the ally of liberty. It debauches tbe
intellect and deadens the political con
scieWe. The late war has ;;.-nveu, both
in the North and South, that men areas
willing now, as they ever were, lo sub
mit to the unrestrained domination of
one mat.: that now, as in all former time,
they need most to be defended against
themselves : that they will always pre
fer to gratify their passions, to revenge
themselves, to triumph, by serving,
rather than to forego that gratification
in order to remain free: and that no!
written cheeks, restrictions, or devices
: can be invented, by which any depart
': meut of a republican government can be
; kept from becoming subservient and
servile to popular caprice. It seem to
be utterly impossible to keep tbe powers

It is idle to prescribe, as a panacea for
all political distempera, that the people
hall change their vicioug aud suttied
habit, aud elect their best and greatest
men to office. Tbe remedy would be
effectual, if it could be applied. But it
is like tbe fabled waters of immortality,
j which none er found. The jieoplJ
nevet have done that, and never will '
j axoept occasionally, aud as it were acci
dentally. They will always, at' last
i prefer this who are nearer the common
level ; feeliug themselves, after a man
ner, exalted when these arr ((
makes the highest offices seem within
their reach. When intellect and great,
ness alone can reach these, they seem as
far oft as the stars. In the early days of i
a Republic, aud uuder the pressure of
extraordinary difficulties, they mav beso i
an application for an injunction against
the execution of tbe act t v the president
and yet it is difficult to perceive ou what
principlethe application now before us
can be allowed, as similar applications
in that aud other cases could have been
Tbe fact that no mch application has
ever before been made in auy case, indi
cates the general judgment of the profes
sion tbat no such application should be
"""p " ""ie io select those
to lead ami govern who are best ijualified
to do so; but the pressure once removed
they drive such pilot from the helm,
and put in their places the intriguants
the ignorant aud the incapable. This i
tbe general rule and habit. Of course
there are occasional exceptions. You
can hardly name a great lawgiver or
philosopher who, if he were now alive
j ooulJ beat the paltriest demagogue be
fore the people for a seat in Congress.
Tbe reform must begin at the other end.
It must commence at the foundation
with the National Constitution, aud he ""l w" qualified
entertained. It will hardly be contended
tnat congress can interpose in any case
to restrain the enactment of an uuconsti
tutioual law, aud yet how can the right
to use judicial interposition to prevent
such an enactment, when the purpose is
evident and the execution of that pur
pose certain, be distinguished from the
right to such interpretation against the
, execution of such a law by the president.
Congress is tbe legislative department of
the government, and the presidents the
executive department. Neither can be
restrained iu its action by tbe judicial
department, though the acts of both,
when performed, are iu proMr cases
subject to its cognizauce. The impro
priety of such interference will be tlatiafl v
seen ou the consideration ol its probable
