-The lxtent of the Preeat Military
and civil Goviernmeut 4a North Caro
After all that has been said and writ.
ten about the present military and 'civil
governrpent of North Carolina, it may
be doubted whether the condition and
extent of the two are well understood
by our citizens. At any rate, we are
-disposed to assume as a certainty that
the condition is not plainly understood,
and to make one more effort to explain
First. What is the power of the mili.
tary of the United States stationed
here ? North Carolina is a. nlilitary
department of the national government,
and ever -this department an army oi.
cer presides, who has entire and unlimit.
ed control over the civil and military
laws 'of the State, and who still has ab.
solute' power over everything the most
rereotely connected with the army, and
'whose absolute- power' over the citisens
wand the eivil authorities, is only limited
I by the authority invested -in the Gov.
ernor by the Poesideht's procimation..
"8Soondly, there' is in the State a
treasdry . department of the United
States government, -separate and dis.
tinotirom the military, existing under
the laws of Con reso. This department
has its own hea4, and is totally and on.

.estatliebed by Congress,- with its own

execiter them. This Department is es.

J. C. BBPOKINRIDG.-A Montreal
correspondent of the New'York Herad G
states that J. C. Breckinridge (ex.Presi,
dent,) Secretary of War of the South
em Confederacy, was to sail from Eng- S
land on the lat inst., and ivas expected G
in Canada on the 12th. Aniong the
latest additions to the rebel nest at Mon.
treal were commander Wilkinson of the
pirate 71sildhassee, and Taylor.Wood, a M
fortner commander of the same craft.
who aided Breckinridge in effecting his
I-. . -M0-0
The Lesbmond Election.
It has been rumored that the result o
of the late election at Richmond hos been
set aside and, declared v'oid by the mili. ro
tary edict of Gen. Terry. -This , state u
ment has not been- confirmed, and we
regard it A entirely without foundation. n
Such an act as that would strike away h
the lost prop of republicanism in this In
country, and the whole fabrio would
fall in irretrievable ruin. , . P
But there is suffiqient cause for anxie
ty in 'the contemplation of the attitude a
of the Black Rqpublican press in regard
to the result of the election at Richmond.
It seemesthat the organs of the dominant C'
party are unwilling to accord to the
'SoUthern people the enjoyment of their
pieferences in the exercise of the elec
tive fanahise. . Af tiley are not to be per"
mitted to select the candidates of their 01
choice for the admioistration of their a
loyal s~fairs, their iranchise is a moeIk,
ey, It would be far better to spare
them the expensp and trouble of e.ee. (
tionas, by giving the appointment of their t
civl iclials to the F ederal Executive.
ItM l natuml that the people of the South
should vote fqr men who have served
the cause of ,the Confederaoy. That
cause wis held sacred by the Southearp
masqseanid,i whether it was right or
wrong; their qinire convictions were
4nlisted in its support. 'l is not now to I
balexpect that they' will- publicly
tensure those who obeyed their 'wishes
and championed their principles in the
Jiour-ofsdsager.; If the populations'of
