died, after a protracted illness, on Thursday, the 2d

Springfield, Vermont, the ion of a clergyman.
Early in life he commenced a cource of study for
the medical profession, and bad already made great
progress, when a permanent loss of health inter
rupted, and be abandoned hi rtuJies, and for a time
engaged successfully in mercantile pursuits. But
the continued pressure of ill-health compelled fur
ther change. The milder climate of the South at
tracted him. And having gained some knowledge
of the then newly discovered Daguerrean art, he
availed himself of it to furnish him, at once, -with
occupation and with support. The result was that
most of his life was spent in the States of Virginia,
North Carolina and Tennessee the last twenty
years in Knoxville. He become profioient in the
art thus casually adopted; keeping up with its ad
vancement, and following it with an artist's inter

is using it in the right direction. Murphy is also
a sound man, stood up to the Unioa cause on all
points, and as was to be expected, his constituents

Tee President Xoaecaffca DJ tne
The storm of indignation which the infamous
conduct of the Kew Orleans rebel aroused among
the loyal people of the North, is intensified upon
learning that thev were openly aided ana aoewea in
their flagrant acts of lawlessness by the President of
the United States. Not only is tut action unnesita.
tingly condemned by the entire well-pronounced
Union press of the country, but even those so-called
Republican journals which have been disposed to
deal tenderly with his criminal blunders can And no
excuse for this latest development of that terrible
calamity to the country which the President egotis
tically terms u my policy." As might be expected,
the Copperhead and rebel press, without, exception,
is in ecstaciea over thu new evidence of "great
statesmanship npon the part xl Mr. Johnson.
They, however, are only the exponents of that class
of the American people, happily in the minority,
out of which the New Orleans mob was composed.
As samples of many others of the same class, we
have selected three prominent journals from whose
columns the rebel organ of the President here is so
fond of quoting. The New York Evening Post
ays : ;
" We do not see how all thu can be explained ; we
trust the President, by publishing the whole corres
pondence, of which we have now only his order,
will be able to justify not only the manner of his
interference, but the act of interference itself. For
the present we can only say that his order appears
to have had as unfortunate an effect as his 22d of
February speech. Instead of comforting and pro
tecting the law-abiding and loyal citizens, it seems
to have encouraged a bloody-minded and vindictive
mob of men lately engaged in rebellion ; instead of
" suppressing all illegal or unlawful assemblies," in
the words of the order, the effect seems to have been
to give full reign to a most lawless and law-defying
mob, and to eecure complete immunity from pun
ishment to the rioters.
" Who made the President the judge of the le
gality of a State Convention ? When did he hear
evidence upon the matter ? Where does he get his
authority for interfering? By the Constitution,
" the United States shall protect each State against
invasion, and on application of the Legislature, or
of the executive, (when the legislature cannot be
convened,) against domestic violence." Where was
the 'invasion?' where the 'domestic violence?'
where the application of the legislature, or of the
executive? Where was even the danger to the pub
lic peace? A convention numbering twenty-six
men met in a hall in New Orleans. Was it feared
by the murderous mob or by Mayor Munroe that
these twenty-six would rise and put the whole order
of Thugs to the sword ?
" It does not escape the attention of the Union
loving people that every outrage like the New
Orleans riot, in the Southern States, is done in the
interests of oppression, and against equal rights and
impartial justice, by men who were but lately zeal
ous and flagrant rebels, and who continue to boast
of their crimes against the country and the flag.
Whether at Memphis or New Orleans, in Richmond
or in Georgia, wherever we hear of mob violence,
it is the violence, the brutal lawlessness of men
lately engaged in an attempt to destroy the Union ;
and their victims are men, women and children
whose loyalty to the Union was so active during the
war that no history of the war can be written with
out recording their courage, fidelity and self-sacrifice.
It is not pleasant to Union-loving people to see the
President of the United States, no matter by what
accident or inadvertence, placed in the position of
giving encouragement to such lawlessness, and make
less endurable tbe sufficiently hard position of men
who, with him, are bated and reviled by the late
rebels as 'Southern loyalists.' "
Tbe New York Commercial Advertiser, another
conservative journal, is equally forcible in its de
nunciation of the President's conduct. It says :
The course of the Presid ent thus far in connec
tion with this outbreak cann ot certainly meet with
approval at tbe rtortn. Ice result snows that bis
reply to the Lieutenant Gov ernor, that the courts
should bo sustained by tbe military, was interpreted
by tbe enemies of the convention as an invitation
to go forward and break it up. He now, after learn
ing of the details of the massacre, telegraphs, not
to tbe Governor, but to the Attorney General of the
Slate, to use sufficient force ' to sustain the civil au
thorities in suppressing all illegal or unlawful as
semblies who usurp or assume to exercise any power
or authority without first having obtained the con
sent of tbe people of the State.' Nothing is said
about ' suppressing ' the angry mob who were hav
ing control of the city yesterday. But what will
strike the reader as most significant in this dispatch
is the manner in which tbe existence of the Gover
nor is ignored. Mr. Wells was chosen Lieutenant
Governor long before Mr. Johnson was elected to
the Vice Presidency, and be is now tho Governor of
tne bute, recognized as such through his election to
that office last November. If the President is, there
fore, as he claims, carrying out tbe reconstruction
policy of his predecessor, tben Mr. Wells, as Gover
nor, is tbe very embodiment of that 'policy,' and
can no more be ignored than tbe Governor of New
York. His own theory of reconstruction is thus
completely set aside by the President, and he acts
on tbe supposition that the recovered States are
nothing more than conquered territory, subject to
the authority of any person to whom he may for
ward instructions. Mr. Johnson, in his veto mes
sages and recent addresses, has asserted that he was
influenced by a desire to combat tbe centralizing
tendencies of the day. But we hear find him guilty
of an assumption ot power such as the most ardent
believers in a centralizing government would never
have dreamed of exercising. If, as he asserts, the
Southern States are restored to their full rights, with
tbe exception of being represented in Congress,
how, then, can the ignoring of Governor Wells be
regarded otherwise than a clear act of Executive
' The fact that President Johnson now allows the
military to interfere in tbe case of the New Orleans
convention is not calculated to soothe the enemies of
his policy, when they recall the fact that he refused
such assistance when asked by Gov. Brownlow,
through General Thomas, in the case of the Nash
ville Legislature. If his reconstruction policy has
any virtue or force whatever, then Mr. Johnson had
no right to interfere in one case more than in tbe
othor. It was clearly wrong for him to withhold
assistance when solicited to secure the passage of the
constitutional amendment, and tben to tender that
assistance when solicited to prevent tbe adoption of
the amendment by a body legally constituted or
otherwise. There is here a glaring inconsistency in
his course, which the President must expect will be
eagerly seized upon by his political opponents. It
is very apparent, however, that President Johnson
still believes himself possessed of the right and
perogative to interfere in Slate matters whenever
deemed best by him to do so. The reconstruction
conventions of the South were time and again call
ed npon him to mould their legislation to suit his
views; and when the State election occurred in
Tennessee, he telegraphed to Governor Brownlow
to strictly enforce the franchise act, adding that suf
ficient military force would be placed at his disposal.
Now, we submit that Mr. Johnson, in order p at
tain to consistency, must either abandon these views
or abandon his whole theory of reconstruction."
We content ourselves w ith but one more extract
It is from the New York Sun, which has heretofore
been disposed to support the policy of the President.
It now says :
" It is true that the convention in question was
not elected by ' the people of the whole State.' At
the time of its election three-fourths of the said peo
ple ot tbe able-bodied class were ngbtin? t de

a majority of the eligible voters in Louisiana, and
we cannot see how it can be ignored without also
ignoring all ether political acts done by Union men
of tbe South during the war. What will become of
tbe State of West Virginia under such a precedent?
And what becomes of the President s reported dec
laration that the Union men of the South were en
titled to a republican form of government, even if
there were only enough of them to run the State

" The New Orleans riot is a warning which the
Government should not fail to appreciate. It is the
tittle flame at the apex of the volcano which indi
cates the boiling, seething mass below, that is liable

The Second Battle or New Orleans.
Well, forty Union martyrs at New Orleans, vic
tims of a rebel mob incited by Mayor Monroe, and
led on by Sheriff Hayes, late of the rebel army, pale
and stark in their bloody shrouds " sleep the sleep
that knows no wakening.'' This Second Battle of
New Orleans destroyed more lives than the first, and
we feel assured that it will bring grander results for
the cause of human liberty. Andrew Jackson led
ibe Union forces in the first battle, lost eight men,
and won a great victory. Andrew Johnson led the
rebel forces in the second battle and won the day,
having killed forty and wounded over one hundred
good and true Union men. He has won a victory
of brute force, but let us trust that the moral victory
of the Bloody Thirtieth of J uly, which our mur
dered and martyred friends have achieved, will ani
mate the soul of the great Union party, and hasten
the downfall of tbe infamous usurper who, like Saul

Tne New York Post on the New Orleans
The N. Y. Post, a moderate Republican journal,
and heretofore very partial to the President, de
nounces the New Orleans massacre, and declares
openly for colored suffrage, says:
"We shall discuss the convention question an
other time, and will only now say that the loyalists
of Louisiana are by this time, probably, convinced
that tbey ought to have taken Mr. Lincoln's advice
in 1864, and established impartial suffrage. Tbey
have probably discovered, what will yet be demon
strated to the loyalists in every Southern State, and
to the whole country, that tbe love of Union, tbe
hatred for rebellion, is found chiefly among the la
boring class, and that while white suffrage may
give tbe majority in every Southern State to tbe
lawless and rebellious politicians, impartial suffrage
will show a large majority of the people everywhere
to be in favor of Union, law and liberty.
"Mr. Lincoln wrote on the !3th of March, 1804,
to Governor Hahn, suggesting the wisdom of equal
suffrage. Here is his letter :
"Executive Mansion, V
Washington, March 13, 1864. J
"Hon. Michael Hahn: Mr Dear Sir: I con
gratulate you on having fixed your name in his
tory as the first Free-State Governor in Louisiana.
Now you are about to have a convention, which,
among other things, will probably define the elec
tive franchise. barely suggest, for your private
consideration, whether some of the colored people may
not be let in, as, for instance, the very intelligent, and
especially those who have fought gallantly in our
ranks. They would probably help, in some trying
time to come, to keep the jewel of liberty in the fami
ly of freedom. But this is only a suggestion, not to
the public, but to you alone.
. "Truly yours,
But the convention had got no further yet than
the foolish doctrine that this is "a white man's gov
ernment;" they saw themselves sustained by the
general government, and probably imagined that
they could always call upon that; and they threw
away their great opportunity. The New Orleans
Tribune speaking of tbe attempt to reorganize Lou
"General Banks, when he called forth the elec
tion of 1864, had in his power the electing of the
conventioners by the generality of the people. He
went to the white mon only. Governor Hahn had
for several months an opportunity to enlarge the
electoral franchise by only making public President
Lincoln's letter, and calling together the Leg! fila
ture, or even the convention. He chose to secrete
the letter in his pocket. Self-government, in the
true sense of the word, was thus denied to Louisi
ana." There were it seems, twenty-four thousand ex
rebel voters nineteen thousand colored voters, and
five thousand loyal, or, as they are called, Radical
voters, in Louisiana, at an election where all voted.
This shows that the two parties are in reality pretty
ev enly balanced in the State, if only impartial suf
frage prevailed. The colored men of Louisiana
have among them much property and intelligence.
Those in New Orleans own fifteen millions dollars
worth of property.
The white loyalists of Louisiana have allowed
their prejudices to get the bctier of their common
sense so far as to exclude these people, their natural
and indispensable allies, from the suffrage.
As for the tale of a crowd ef negroes armed and
marching through the streets everybody in wolf
land knows that it is the sheep who are constantly
in the habit of ferociously attacking the peaceable
and innocent wolves. It is scarcely worth while
to send such idle tales by telegraph. The blacks
are not likely to attack anybody not even when
they are. themselves first attacked, it seems, for we
do not hear of any rioters being killed. We advise
the colored men of New Orleans and of the South
generally to defend themselves when ruffians at
tack them, and to take life for life and limb for
limb. That is the best way for them to secure res
pect for themselves, in a community which elects
Monroe its mayor. They are numerous eneughjlet
tnem stric drck, once, and strike hard. The cow- j
ardly wretches who deny justice to men because'
they are black, will leave them alone when they find
that their victims know how to protect themselves. J
Lieutenant General Sherman gave the speech- !
making President a sharp thrust the other night in
Washington. In response to a serenade he appear
ed on the balcony and spoke as follows :
"My fellow-citizens, I thank you for this compli
ment, althongh I do not intend to make you a
speech. I have been told that the less a man says
in Washington the more he is thought of. Great
laughter. I am a stranger among yon, and I shall
depart to-morrow for St, Louis, where I shall be
happy to have you call on me, or on the plains,
where I soon expect to be. A man is his own best
friend when he don't makes speeches. I now bid
Tne Slave-Trade of Richmond.
A gentleman intimately acquainted with Rich
mond, before and since the rebellion, informs U3 that
the slave traffic of that city amounted annually, for
many years, to ten millions of dollars. One-fourth
of this sum was net profit to the four hundred per
sons engaged in the inhuman business a negro cost
ing $700 generally bringing $1,000. Many of the
finest bouses and estates of the city were in the
hands of these men, and many " F. F. V.'s " of the
highest social standing were silent partners in the
business. Tbey controlled the banks, and subsidized
the pulpit, press, and politics of the State. In tbe
winter of 1S61 tbe trade was unusually dull, and its
leaders went into tho secession movement on what
seemed to them the soundest financial principles.
Their avowed purpose was to get up an excitement,
whieh should make slave property insecure in the
border States, and bring it into their hands, to be
transferred at a great profit to the cotton region.
They encouraged every violent measure, got up se
cession meetings, employed fire-eating speakers and
bands of music, and resorted to every available ex
pedient for "firing the Southern heart."
These reckless traffickers in human flesh are now
poor and desperate. Accustomed to lavish expen
ditures, they naturally seek to plunder an impov
erished community by means of drinking saloons
and gambling hells. Their former occupation was
exactly adapied to prepare theiu for these new
methods of winning a livelihood, as well as for mur
der, robbery, and assassination. . With these desper
adoes swarming at evory corner, it is no wonder that
Richmond is a dangerous place of resideuce for men
who were conspicious for their hostility to the rebel
lion. The plot lately formed there for the assassin
ation of Judge Underwood, and which was defeated
only by the vigilance of his fiiends, does not at all
surprise us. The wonder is, rather, that it did not
Of course, there are many good men and women
in Richmond, but we suspect there is not another

aem oi toe u nitea Mates, was nis celebrated say
ing, "Treason mxx be anade odious, and traitors
punished." The Union-loving people of this coun
try saw safety in that speech. They adhered, to a
man, to that programme. They felt and feel
that if the leading traitors are brought to punish
ment for their monstrous! crime, and if treason is
made odious, he country is safe, for we may hope
to gain all else by argument and by the help of
Somehow traitors have not yet been punished.
Many of the vilest and most pernicious have been
pardoned, and tbe chief of all still lies in prison.
Nevertheless, treason is daily becoming more odi
ous; there is no doubt about it. It was more odious
on tbe day of the Memphis riots than it was before;
it was more odious when the colored Unionists of
Geonria were driven away from the Union soldiers'
graves they wished to decorate than before. It be
came still more odious yesterday morning, as peo
ple read the account of tne - ew urleans riot: and
the New York DaUy News, the Richmond Enquirer
and half a dozen journals conducted in a similar
spirit, make it more and more odious, from day to
Not only is the spirit of treason becommt; odious
by the lawless and defiant course of tbe men who
latelv were engaged in an attempt to overthrow the
Government and Union, nd who have been so
freely forgiven for their crime; traitors as well as
treason are becoming odious. The process by which
tbis is brought about u not precisely that which
was in people's minds when they applauded Mr.
Johnson for his famous phrase. But it is just as
effectual it mar turn out to be more so.
For the condemnation which the Southern lead
ers are bringing upon themselves is more severe,
and will bring with it severer penalties than any
the courts would have decreed The Union-loving
people are quietly watching these men; they see
tbem everywhere the abettors of violence, of un
righteousness; stirring up sedition; the industrious
sowers of haired and uncharitableness; turbulent,
lawless, defiant. They draw their owu conclusions
from all that has passed in tbe last year in tbe
South; and those conclusions are not favorable to
the continued rule of. the claa which boastfully
pretends that it alone can and ought to rule in the
If there is any man of influence and of common
sense ia those States, he would do well to warn
tho?e who were lately engaged in rebollion that they
will be wise to act somewhat more cautiously and
prudently than they are doing. They ought to un
derstand that though the twenty millions who
fought for the Union are patient and long-suffering,
they are not fools. Thoy would do well to re
member that by about twenty-four millions of our
population treason and rebellion are regarded as
crimes deserving of tbe "heaviest punishment; and
that every lawless act, every reckless defiance,
every boastful assumption on the part of the men
who were rebels and traitors, only strengthens the
sentiment, which is growing rapidly in the North
ern States, that conciliation of traitors is a huge
blunder, free pardon a deadly mistake, and severi
ty and tbe strict enforcement of the laws against
treason and rebellion the only wholesome or safe
It ehould be remembered that it is not yet too
me to revise and reverse all that has been done in
the way of reconstruction. Already the very name
oi paraon nas oecome natelul to tbe Union-loving
people, and every rebel pardoned excites new alarm
and dissatisfaction. Already people besin to feel.

Public sentiment is more set now upon confining
omce w me original unionists tnan it was six or
three months ago; tbe people more universally de-
roam mo execution oi tbe laws against treason now
tban tbey have ever done since Lee's surrender. If
Congress had chosenTt adopt constitutional amend
m?nt guaranteeing in the name of the nation, not
only equal rights but equal suffrage, it would need
only another New Orleans riot to gain the vote of
every Northern State for such a measure.
Tbe lawless class in the Southern States seem to
be engaged in a deliberate attempt to make free
government impossible there. Let them not go too
far; let them remember that the patience of those
who supported the Union when they were in arms
to destroy it has a limit, and that there is only one
thing sure whatever may happen to rebels and
traitors, whatever inconvenience they have to be
put to, or whatever severity of punishment may be
required to bold tbem in awe, the American people
are determined justice shall de done, liberty equal
and impartial liberty shall be maintained, and
equal rights sball be enforced on every foot of our
territory. Pardoned traitors like this Monroe, May
or of New Orleans, and hundreds of others, are ma
king treason so odious here, by their outrageous
mieconauct,tbat tbey will presently find themselves
fatally tbe losers by it.
General Sheridan Declares tbe New Or
leans Blot a Preconcerted BeDel Con
spiracy. . -
STARTLING ACCOUNT OT AFFAIRS IN NEW ORLEANS.
A Washington dispatch to the Cintin nati Ga
zette says : -
"A number of promising Unionists, just arrived
here from New Orleans, give startling accounts of
tne state oi anairs in tbat city. Two instances will
show tbat the condition of society in Louisiana,
and the results of tbe inauguration of "my policy."
"Two men, one of them a Northern Unionist and
the other a rebel, happened to get into a political
discussion. Upon separating the rebel told the
Union man tbat he would kill him the next time
they met. In a short time after, in company with
his brother, this ruffian met the Union man in a
saloon, when he immediately fired at him across
the table, and the two shof. and stabbed their vic
tim until there were seventeen bullet and knife
boles in his corpse. A Coroner's jury brought in a
verdict of killed in self-defense.
"The murdered Dr. A. P. Dostie not long since
received notice that one of his friends, a Union
man, living up the river, bad been shot, and was
not expected to live. Dr. Dostie went to see him,
but be died soon after his arrival. No notice was
taken of this murder.
"A gentleman who formerly served on Geu.But
ler's staff, who has lately returned from New Or
leans, says that not one in six of the murderers of
Union men or freedmen are ever arrested.
"It is stated by officers from the Southwest, that
there are only 1,200 troops in the Department of
A COLD-BLOODED MASSACRE.
"Geu. Sheridan telegraphs to Gen. Grant to-day
that the riol in New Orleans was not tba spontane
ous outbreak of an ordinary mob, but the execution
of a pre-arranged plan of the rebels to slaughter
the leading Union men of the State; and that there
is evidence that this plot was concocted weeks ago.
"The Associated Press dispatches from New Or
leans are glaringly false, and are dictated by the
rebel State officials themselves.
"Gen. Sheridan expresses the opinion that the
riot is but the commencement of the scheme to rid
Louisiana of Union men."
J General Simon Cameron on President
r . - Johnson. -
A Radical meeting was held at Harrisburg, Pa-,
on Wednesday last, at which General Cameron pre
sided. . .
" General Cameron, on taking the chair, briefly
alluded to tbe situation of public affairs, contrasting
it as it existed now with wbat it vas a year ago. A
year ago, we wer told by the mi whom a terrible
accident made Prwnlent, that traitors must and
would be punished. To-day that same man ia plot-ting-not
merely to lighten the penalties of treason,
but actually to secure such a recognition for traitors
as would give tbem a precedence and power in tbe
Government which they did not possess before they
conspired for its overthrow. These facts could no
longer be concealed. Andrew Johnson s faithless
ness to tbe policy and the party which made him
Vice President had become a portion of the common
shame of treason. It was useless to deny it any
longor, while those who sought its justification would
be compelled to share its odium. General Cameron
then casually alluded to what had been and yet was
expected from the Governmentin dealing with trai
tors. The people who saved the Government ex
pected the odium of treason to rest forever on the
originators of the late rebellion. If a hundred lead
ing rebels had been seized at the end of tbe war if
Jeff. Davis and bis immediate associates had been
tried, 'convicted and hanged, the troubles would
have been over, and the work of rehabilitation finished."
Brownlow and Johnson.
For many years before the war, Brownlow and
Johnson were fierce and bitter enemies. There is
scarcely an abu.ive adjective in the language which
these men have not hurled at each other. But at
the eutbreak of the war they both united in a stern
resistance to tbe rebellion, and of course were both
cordially hated by the secession leaders. Since the
accession of Johnson to the Presidency, they have
again become enemies, and have lately been en-
5 aged in a desperate game of political strategy.
ohnson determined tbat the Constitutional Amend
ment should not pass the Tennessee Legislature and
Browniow determined that it should. The Presi
dent descended to every species of political intrigue
and finesst to prevent a quorum of the Legislature
from a-emblin, aud ucceeded until tbe Governor
arrested the recusant members and enforced their
attendance, and thus secured the quorum which
passed tbe amendment, and Tennessee is once more
in the Union. We never had any special admira
tion for Brownlow as a man, but the victory he has
thus ecured for the Union is of inestimable impor
tance. We presume the triumph of Brownlow will
not make the feelings of Johnson toward him any
We should think the President would begin to be

litical strategy. Toe game see.ns to be blocked at
