The president's Mess:ge was delivered to Con
gress to-day. He says, the resistance to the
General Government his exha,ted itself. The
first question which occoirred w-s whther the
territory within the limits of the States which
'ttempted to sec,,de should be held as con
quered territory unlcr military a'hriv em
anating from the Predeent 1e1constlrefd that
Militarv Govermnerts est%bihed for an indefi
iite period would have of'ered no Security for
the early supprcssfon of discontent, but would
fiave divided the people into vanq(uIshed classes
andcaused evenomEd hatred rather than restored
affeet3r. The true theory is that all pretended
acts of secession were, from the beginning null
and void. States cannot commit treason nor se
eede in their ipdividual citizens who may have
eonimitted treason. States attemting to secede,
placed themselves in a condition where their
functions were suspended, but not destroyed.
But if any State neglects or refuses to perform
its offices, there is the more need that the Gene
fal Government should maintain its anULority,
and as soon as practicable resume its o."icial func
tions. On this principle he acted. Gradually
and equally, by almost imposihble steps, lie
sought to restore the rightful energy of the Gen
eral Government and of the the States. To that
end Provisional'Governors were appointed. All
parties in the late terrible conflict must werk to
gether in harmony. It is not too mnch to ask
of one side that the plan of restoring shall pro
eeed in corformity with the willingness to cast
The disorders of the past into oblivion, and that
on the other side the evidence of sincerity in
the future maintenance of the Union shall be
put beyond any doubt by the ratification of the
proposed anti-slavery amendment to the Consti
tution of the United States. This amendment
being.adopted, it would remain for the States to
riesumeltheir functions, take their place in the
two branches of Congress, and theieby complete
the work of restoration.
The President says he has no authority to
nake the freedmen electors. That remains n ith
the States. They can decide whether it is to be
adopted at once or introduced gradually with a
sondition. Good faith, however, requires laws
for the security of the freedmen in their liberty,
property, right to labor, and to claiu jurisdiction
of their labor.
It will be his constant aim -o promote peace
and unity with all foreign nations, and believes
all of them are animated by the same disposition.
The accordance of belligerent rights to insurgent
States was unjustifiable, but Great Britain was
an exception. She built ships, furnished men
and material of war to the insurgents. JusLifica
t1on for it cannot be sustained before the tribu
nal of the world. At the same tine be does not
advise any present attempt at redress by acts of
legilation,.for the future friendship between the
two seuntries must rest on the basis of mutual jus
We have wisely forborne propagandism of re
publicanism,. but if it should be because of some
great calamity to ourselves, and in the cause of
good government, any foreign power should chal
lenge the American people to its defence, against
foreign interference, he relies on the wisdom and
justice of those powers to respect the system of
non-interference which has so long~ been sane
tioned by time.
Was organized on the 4th. Senate met at
12, and was called to order by Mr. Porter. A
variety of Bills were introduced.
The House was organized by the re-election
of Hon. Schuyler Colfax. No Southern mem
bers were called.
Mr. Maynard, of Tennessee, protested, but
the Clerk~refused t o listen to him. The Pres
ident announces that he is not only ini favor
of the admission ot the Tennessee delegates,
but of all members elected who can Lake the
oath. Strong efforts will be made to make
Tennessee an exception, but it will fail.
The galleries of the House of Representa
tie-are densely crowded, and mnock good
humor is prevalent among the members.
Onie hun~dred and seventy members answer
ed to their names.
Mr. Brooks, of New York, made a speech,
characterizing the omission of the members
from Tennessee from the roll as unpreceden
ted. If Mr. Maynard was not a loyal man,
from a Union and loyal State, the President
himself was not loyal, but an alien and a
stranger. He charged that the adoption of
the resolution by the Republican eaucus was
designated as antagonistic to the President's
THE SOUTHlERN MEMBERS.
As the Clerk was calling the roll of the
members from New York, Mr. Maynard of
Tennessee, rose to speak, but was prevented
ed from proceeding by the Clerk who stated
that no remarks at that time were in order.
At the conclusion of the call of the roll, Mr.
Morrill, of Vermont moved that the House
proceed to the e'Nction of Speaker.
Mr. Maynard again attempted to be heard,
but was silenced by cries of "order."
Mr. Br>oks, of New York, protested
against the refusa'l to hear Mr. Maynard,
elaiming that if Tennessee was not a State of
te Union, and if Mr. Maynard was to be re
garded as an alien, the President of the Uni
ted States-a citizen of Tennessee-was also
ar. alien, and a usurper. lHe demanded that
thne members from Virginia and Tennessee
should be admitted, and denounced the refu
sal of the House to admit them as despotism.
Mr. Brooks was frequently called to order
during his remarks by Mr. Stevens of Penn
slvania, and others, and finally asked Mr.
Stepbens when he proposed to consider the
question. Mr. S. replied that he proposed to
consider it at the proper time. The response
elicited considerable applause from the mem
bem and spectators.
The clerk said he could not recognize any
.eeasa member whose name was not on the
Mr. McPhersen was elected Clerk ; Mr.
Ordway, Sergeant-at-Arms ; Mr. Goodenow,

- Mr. Stevens offer'ed a bill for the appoint
mnent of fifteen members to report whether
any el the late Confederate States are entitled
The bill was passed by a vote of 123 yeas
to 36 nays.
Mr. Brooks then moved as an amendment
to the motion for an election of Speaker, that
Mr. Maynard be allowed to make his state
ment. This was loudly objected to. The
election of Speaker then took place, with the
iesulte already announced.
In the House, a select committee was appoint
ed on the subject of a urtiform bankrupt law.
A resolution was nearly unianimously adopted,
declaring that the public debt, with interest,
should be promptly paid. A commititee of one
from each State was ordered to , prepare resolu
tions testifying the respect of Congress for the
memory of the late President Lincoln.

Mr. McPherson, the clerk of the 'late House,
has had his roll of miembers elect printed, with
out waiting for any certificates of election. This
roll excludes the members who have been elect
ed from States not represented in the late Con
gress. It is presumed that the Republican can
es, to be held Saturday night, will sustain the
clerk in his course. A number of Southern
members elect will be here and will present their
certificates of election. These certificates will be
referred, and, meanwhile, a protracted and spirit
ed discussion will spring up in regaFd to the
whole subject of Southern restoration. By cour
tesy and by usage the members elect, th ough
not admitted, till their eases be decided upon by
the House, will occupy seats and desks in the Hall,
and will be furnished with the usual facilities of
newspapers, stationary and public documents.
The idea that they will stand aloof from Congress,

tion~ to those membes who, from the first, will
sustain the President's plan.

Murder and Sudden Retribution.
A cold blooded and diabolical murder was
perpetrated on Thursday night last, we learn,
near Stoney Battery in this District, the victim
n old lady by nanrze of Mrs. White, harmless
and inoffensive in disposition. Mrs. White lived
entirely alone in a cabin in the woods. She was
round the next morning with her head broken in
two or three places. The deed was supposed to
have been done by a notorious renegade freed
man, formerly the slave of Mr. H. Stuckman, and
who had just previously broken in to her cabin
and stolen some articles. On Sunday morning
the body of the murderer and thief was found
dead, somewhere in the neighborhood, his head
perforated by a pistol ball. A just retribution.

taking with him the clothing of a boarder, by
breaking open a trunk. As soon as the articles
were missed, Mr. Lemon the clerk, started in pur

Helena, where he was about to get on the train.
Lemon drew a pistol and called for a surrender,
which was unconditionally done, the rogue not
having time to draw his weapon. Arnett denied
all knowledge of the robbery, but being told that
would not do, he started to the spot where he
had left his baggage, where the stolan property
was all found, which together with the light fin

Fell at the Head of his Division, Feb. Cth, 1865,
What shall we say now of our gentle knight,
Or how express the measure of our woe,
For him who rode the foremost in the fight,
Whose good blade flashed so far amid the foe ?
Of all his knightly deeds what need to tell
That good blade now lies fast within its sheath ;
What can we do but point to where he fell,
And like a soldier met a soldier's death.
We sorrow not as those who have no hope ;
For he was pure in heart as brave in deed
God pardon us, if blind we grope,
Arnd love be questioned by the hearts that
And vet-oh ! foolish and of little faith !
We cannot choose but weep our useless tears;
We loved him so ; we never dreamed that death
Would dare to touch him in his brave young
Ah ! dear, browned face, so fearless and so brightl
As kind to friend as thoui wast stern to foe
No more we'll see thee radiant in the fight,
The eager eyes-the flush on cheek and brow !
No more we'll greet the lithe, familiar form,
Amid the surging smoke with deaf'ning cheer ;
No more shall soar above the iron storm
Thy ringmng voice in accents sweet and clear.
Aye ! he has fought the fight and passed away
Our grand young leader smitten in the strife ;
So swift to seize the chances of the fray,
And careless only of his noble life.
He is not dead but sleepeth! well we know
The form that lies to-day beneath the sod
Shall rise that time the golden bugles blow,
And pour their music through the courts of God.
And there amid our great heroic dead,
The war-worn sons of' God whose work is done,
his face shalt shine, as they, with stately tread,
In grand review sweep past the Jasper throne.
Let not our hearts be troubled ! Few and brief

OBIT UA RY.
DI:D, in Newberry District ou the 4th Dec.
185, of congestioni of the stomach and brain,
Mas. Santtx KisARD, beloved wife of Middleton
T. Kinard, in the :muth year of her age.
Tesbect of this notice was a lady of strong.
intellectu1l power~s,ancutvedhoe ras
and virtues that so hiighiily embellish the female
character. She was reared under the fostering
hand of piety, and so happy were its effects on
her while young, that she obeyed the injunction
of the Saviour "seek ye p'rst the kingdom of God,"
and united herself with the Mlethodist Episcopal
Church in her eighth year. Shme devoutly
loved the peculiar doctrines of the Church of her
choice, and by her consistent life, constrained
all who knew her well, to say, behold an Israel
She had a benevolent heart and seenied to
feel that it was better to give than receive. She
knew not how to send the poor away unahinsed.
Among the last inquiries made by her, was con
cerning a beggar at the gate, whose wants being
relieved she~was satisfied. When disease laid
its blighting hand upon her, friends and Vhysi
cians pressed to her bed-side, to stay rts ravages,
"bit could not detain an angel on the earth, a
spirit ripe for heaven." During her long and
painful illness at times,her mind became de}ious
on common subjects, but when the subject of re
ligion was presented, reason resumed its throne
and she conversed intellectually about its comn
forts, God, and heaven. Her dying charge to
her devoted husband, Mother and friends will
not soon be forgotten. After urging all
to meet her in heaven, she committed her two
darling little girls to her Miother's care, praying
God's blessing upon them, and as she approached
the vale of death, she said the disembodied spirits1
of loved ones gone before were in her room. A
death loosed the bands of life she faintly whis
pered Glory, Glory. Thus did this noble woman
"Let me die the death of the righteousand lei
my last end be like hers." J. M1. B.
