Tiun. STEVENSON TIM: PRESIDENT'S VIEWS
-Thad. Stevens recently wrote the following
ctter, with the vier., doubtless, of influ?ncinj
die la'e elections in Pennsylvania:
Jiiiar ?sir,-In hnnwer to your impiirv
;* What effect the success of the President';
views will have on the national securities/' '.
am of opinion that its cifcots would bc
The President contends that the body o
men acting as Congress hus no constituliona
powers, and can do no Yu?d acts iu tho ab
senc/o of tho excluded Staten. The Congres
ses that authorized tho war debt and laid thc
internal duties to pay it, were composed c
precisely thc same number of representatives,
(rem the same States as the pro-cut. If il
should bo decided that those Congresses had
no conMitutiotml existence, the five-twenties,
ten-forties, seven'-thlrticc and tho le^id-iunaei
gi'eenuacka will have been issued witliout au
thority, and will be worthless.
Whether they would ever be redeemed
weald depend on what thc President would
consider constiturional Congress, after thc
admission of the rabel representatives, when
thc condition ol the debts of both belligerents
would bc considered. Toura, Italy.
A QUEER Wcnnixc;.-The Hartford Post
rplates a curious jncklcut nea: thal. city. Mrs.
Elisa Barnsley, a young war widow, had been
courted and won by a young lawyer from
Providence, who spent his vacation in the
neighborhood. Thc day for the marriage was
?xcu.?nd all tho arrangements made, but ut
tin appointed hour the bridegroom came not.
Ile had gone from thc town in thc early train.
The bride was disconsolate, the friends out
raced. Worse than all, the dinner was get
ting spoiled by waiting. Seeing this state of
affairs, one of the invited gut-ats, a middle
ag?vl farmer, who had been a secret admirer
ot Mrs. Barnsley, whom she had encouraged
before the former's advent, stepped up, offered
to take the groom's place, and was accepted.
Tiiey were married, ate their dinner and
promise to make a happy couple.
Keep Away from the Polls.
If not the first in Georgia, this journal was
among the very first to counsel the people to
keep away from the polls at the coming elec
tion for or against a Convention. We did
not acaree with our esteemed contemporary,
the Chronicle &. Sentinel, with regard to its
game of <: hedging,'* or, to be more explicit,
the policy of voting for delegates and ab
staining from a vote on the question of Con
vention. Wc doubted tho good effect of any
such programme and advocated a stuight
out abandonment of the entire matter. We
feel convinced that every ballot for delegates
alone will be null and void, and although such
nullification would amount to a practical
abandonment of thc contest, it would prevent
the true people of the Stato from making a
clear division of parties and securing a recog
nition of those whites ioho havehitherlo afflia
tcd with thc negroes, in disguise. It is desir
able to know these gentry, and the only way
to obtain that knowledge is by keeping away
from the polls. Thc Loyal Georgian cabal
has boasted that thc-o aro more than four
hundred whites in Augusta bound to the
Loyal League ; let us test thc truth of this
assumption by keeping away from thc polls.
Such a course is thc best oue demanded by
the present situation and one, too, calculated,
not only to defeat the Radical plot, but like
wise to unmask thc Radical plotters. It is
one thing to sneak into a midnight assem
blage and another thing to show your colors
in open daylight. A full exposure can only
be accomplished by keeping away from the
We presume, as a matter of course, that
our contemporary desired to have some of
tlie best mon in Convention, in case snell a
conclave should bc called. But, if we do not
mistake thc meaning of the Supplemental
Bill, it is not permissible to vote for delegates
without voting for or against the Convention.
Tho supplement to the Military Bill requires,
in its third scctiou, that votes furor against
a Convention shall bc written or printed on
Hu ballots for delegates. In Virginia. G?n?r
erai Schofield has issued an order enjoining
this interpretation. Hence, there can bc on
ly one ticket, and that ticket must be as pre
scribed. If .. hedged*1 ' or bob-tailed-if torn
in half or shorn of its authorized proportions
-if erased as to thc words for or again *t a
Convention, sucha ticket will bc illegal and
Wc trust cur able contemporary will lock
shields with us on this important question.
No possible good can eventuate from voting
a mutilated and illegal ticket, bat,on tim con
trary, very considerable complications may
arise. Some of these complications we have
pointed out; others w.ill be tojiccd in duo
season. Meanwhile, we say to tito white
people "of the State: Vole for .nei?ter'dele

QUAKING.-The following paragraph, taken
from thc Springfield Republican (Radical), is
worth reading. Il cor.lesses that the present
Congressional programme is a failure and a
humbug. That our people may have no hand
in perpetrating ihe humbug,? we urge mas
terly inactivity-we urge keeping OK.;y front

In substance, even rf thc motions are gene
