The Trial of Jefferson Davis.
During thc interview on Friday, be
tween the President and tho South Caro
lina delegates, he said if treason had been
committed, there ought to be some test
by the highest tribunal, as to the power
of the Government to the puiiishineut of
thc crime, in order to the vindication of"
the Government and the Constitution, c
ven if the Executive clemency should
thereafter be exeocised. This repetition
of hi.s intention certainly docs uot com
port with the assertion of at least one
newspaper correspondent, and which has
been extensively published, that the
President has no idea of bringing Jeffer
son Davis to trial. The delay has cer
tainly uot been the fault of ths Adminis-
tration, nor is there reason to believe that
thc desired teat has been abandoned.
It is known that it is the business of
the Judiciary and not of the executive,
to initiate proceedings in the premises;
