Ei.siE MAdooN, or the old Still Ilouse ;
by Mrs. Emma D. Gage.
This is the title of a well written
book, which is intended to show the
evils of intemperance, and the direful
effects of a "St:ll House" upon the sur
rounding community. Scenes of drunken
nces quarrelling, murder and bloodshed,
follow each other in rapid succession.
The-beroic efforts of Elsie Magoon, the
younger, to stem the tide of evil and
save her young friends from the drunk
ard's dootin, are graphically related. We
do*not doubt that the pictures are true.
Could we read, as in an open book, all
tiiebottors wrought by one "StiU House,"
all the degradation, shaine and gief, we
would, without doubt, stand aghast- at
the terrible picture.
'Tticse horrors, the book under notice
- undertakes to present, and it does' its
work well. - The downward progress of
-Rieard Magoon, the~builder aid owner
of tb "Still House," until his excesses
culminate in murderous assaults upon his
family, and in a lingering disease which
birings himn to a premature grave, is well
and feelingly told.
We commend the book to the well.
wiabers of humanity, and especially to
our temperance friends.

magabee,n realised.- An Act explanatery
of heAct ofMarch 1867. passed both Houses
e1%vs that the military, commanders pos,~
uessed the powers which they claimed to the
ftiDest extent, but goes further.
st~ 'It declares the governments then ex
isthUi the rebel States as illegal and if con

subjects the acts of the District comman,

polnt others is clearly affrmed.

ral of the army of' the United States to sus
peud, remove and appoint, State offiers.
5th. The Acts or the District Command
era i,n removing persons from onice and s%

and It is declared that it shall be the duty of
such comimanders to remove from offce as
a'oresaid all persons who are disloyal to the
.Government-of the. United States, or who
use their influence In any manner to hinder,
delay, prevent, or obstruct, the due and

8. The Boards of Begistration are vested
with full powers to judge or the qualifications
of persona proposing to register their names
a voters, and not to allow the registration
ofany parson they may decide not to be
r qasified to vote; their action however to be
subject to the 'approval of' the District

11. The District commanders, members of
boards of registration, and persons acting
under them, shall not be bound in their ac

United States. Such are the main provisions
of this Act. The reader will readily perceive
that most of the points of construction
which it makes are In direct conflict with
the opinion of Attorney General Stanberry.
The Ac. was intended to destroy the force
and effect of that opinion, and at the same
time to remove the hand of the President
from any and all participation in the work
Henceforth our people should distinctly
understand, that the government they are
living under is purely military, and that
those who hold offices, known to our laws as
"civil offices," hold them at the will of the
District commanders, and are merely his
subordinate agents in carrying on the gov
ernment and administering the laws.
The effect of this legislation is alto to oust
the President of the United States from all
authority or jurisdiction in these States, ex%
cept in the appointment of federal civiL of
ficers. General Grant is now the President of
these States. He is our ruler except when
Congress intervenes. What an anamolons

where is the ship of State drifting? Is it to

fearful breakers? There is enough in the
signs of the times to fill every patriot's heart
with the worst forebodings. All history is a
lie, or these signs, these progressive -steps of
a power in the government which acknowl
edges no check or control,-no constitution
al barrier against its will, are but the terri
ble tread of revolution in its mighty, resist.
Letter from Gen. Sickles.
Gen. Sickles has .ddressed the following
letter to the lion. Lyman Trumbull, Chair
man Judiciary Committee, United States
Cnt nr.ox, S. C., July 5, 1867.'
My DF,an. Sin: I have decided not to be
gin registration in this district until Con
gress dete: mines who shall be registered. .I
trust, therefore, that it will be the pleasure
of Congress to extend the time for the com
pletion of my registrativn, until-say, Octo
ber or November. If I proceed now, and
disregard the wishes of the President, my
action would be regarded as insuhordina
tion ; if I follow his intimations, many
would probably be registered not eligible
according to the true intet pretation of the
Acts of Congress.
If it is meant that all who have held any
ofiee-Federal, State or municipal-having
taken an oath of office to support th' Con
stitution of the United States, and after
wards engaged in rebellion, or given aid,
comfort, etc., arte disfranchised, this should
be expressly declared ;-therwise, if left to
cons: ruction, it may be held that no other of
fleers are included than those classes enu
merated in Article VI of the Constitution,
and that even as to these a full pardon re
moves the disqualifi-ation.
If it-is meant to exclude lawyers, they
should be expressly mentioned, or else de
scribed by some classifieation; as, for ex
ample, after the word "office," add "any
licensed calling or employment or pro'fes
sion." Otherwise, if the eligibility of law
yers be Ieft to construction, it ma y be held
that a la wyer is not a public offcer, although
a functionary of a court or. other judicial
The tiuth is, we have .now in operation
two distinct systems of reconstruction, orig
inated by Congress, and engrafted upon
the Frasidenat's plan of reconstruction. The
first Congressional plan is expressed in the
Howard constitutional amendment, leaving
suifrage to. be regulated by the several
States, and imposing upon cet::in elasses of
persons .disqiualification fer office, as a putt
ishmexet for rebellion and as a safe-guard
for the future. That plan having beeni re
fused by the rebel States, Congress passed
the reconstruction Acts, which form a sec
ond scheme of reconstruct1on, -entirely dis
tinct in principle and plan from the former.
In the second plant, Congress assumes con
trol of the question of suffragi', which is ex
tended to all who can take a prescribed
oath, and alsp enforces the disqutalification
for office, which would haye Me~n the penad
and conservative-featur6 of the first plan.
Now, it seems to mec that the -true conserva
tive guarantee against reaction is in the ad
dition made to the loyal vote by the en
franchisement of the colored people. That
being done, the occasion for the disqutalifi
cation clause ceases. Hence the true solu
tion, I believe, is to declare, with universal
suffrage, a general amnesty-naming the
exceptions. A more liberal amt,esty is, in
my judgment, essential to the success of
the C;ongressional plan of reconstruction.
It will en!arge the range of popular choice
for the important juidicial, executive and
legislattive depa rt'aents of the State Govern
ments,,. otherwise inconveniently confined
to classes very few of whom are fit to hold
The people can surely be entrusted to
judge and select fronm those who took parr
in the rebellion, the men at once qualified
and sitncere in their adhesion to the new
order of things. Such men, being eligible
to oficee, will have motives to identify them
selves with reconstruction, and to support
the 'views of the majority. Now, more
than ever, men of ability andl experience in
publie business are needed for the State
governmetts in the South ; and it is truly
unfortunate that at such a moment nearly
all who know anything of public affairs,
and especially those who could fill judicial
'statious, are disfranchised. This exposes
the experiment of general suffrage to need
less hazards. *If the experiment fail, it is
most likely to fail from the inability of the
people to put in office those who could and
would assure success. It would hive been
advantageous, perhaps, to have rem ,ved
many disaffected persotns, especially judges,
aheriffs and magistrates, in the execution of
the sixth section of the Act of 2d March, if
competent successors could have been found
among those who are eligible -to office.
And I would regard tyy'possession now
of a wider fitld..oidhoice for civil officers,
as one of-the most effective instrumentali
ties in the execution of the military author
ity conferred upon District Comtmanders.
As it is, I find myself prevented, as will the
people by arnd by, from securing for the
public atrvice men of aptitude and charac
ter, whose repentance is as certain as the
devotion of the most consistant loyalist.
In truth, the zeal of some of the converts
out-runs the discretion of manty of the faith
fuL With reference to other pra.ctical sog.
gestions, it might be useful if Congress, by
one of its committees, interrogated the
commanding officers of the several Districts
upon the operation of the reconstruction
Acts, and the~further legislation required.
FRECKLES.-At this season of the year,
many of our lady readers are annoyed
with freckles. They will thank us for a
simple way for removing them, which is
to take powdered salpetre and apply it to

whole proceeding, and when properly
done and judiciously repeated, it will
remove all the freckles. -

TuAD. STEVENS ON CONFISCATION.- A
correspondent of the New York Herald
professes to have had a conversation with
Thad. Here is part of it:
Question-Do you still adhere to the
policy of confiscation ?
Mr. Stevens-I look on the leading
rebels of t,he South as great criminals,
who have not yet expatiated their
crimes. They have entailed upon the
loyal people, by their voluntary and
wicked acts, much sorrow and suffering
the loss of millions of treasure and hun
dreds of thousands of lives. They have
done this in the very worst cause that
could be conceived-in an attempt to
break up a noble, benificent and free
Government. They have waged upon
us a flagrantly unjust war. They de
serve to have imposed upon them the
heaviest penalties of war, now that they
are conquered. But as they are our
countrymen I would be merciful to them.
I would not take their lives, and I would
not beggar and oppress them. But if I
had my way, I would, at the very least,
impose upon the rich men of the ex-rebel
territory-those who have come out of
their wicked struggle with large wealth
a mild confiscation, sufficient to pay the
loyal men of the South all they have lost
by confiscation at the hands of the rebels,
and Northern men all the damages they
have suffered by rebel rai.Is and inva
sions. There are thirty or forty thous
and rich rebels in the conquered terri
tory, whose wealth would suffice to pay
these claims, and yet not leave them beg
gars. These classes of sufferers by the
war have no other means or hope of ob
taining repayment for their losses, and
it is but just that they should be repaid.-;
