Hon. A. H. Stephen*. Before the Recon
Wash rsoxoK, April 1 A?Among the testimony report
ed to-day from tho Committee on Reconstruction was
that of Alexander H. Siethens. He taid that he had
conversed freely with the prominent men of Georgia,
and met with a great many pruminon* and influential
men at Milledgeville, rfbt concocted with the Legislature.
Ho gave it as his decided opinion, from conversations
and correspondence, ihat sn overwhelming majority of
the people of Georgia are exceedingly anxious for thi res
toration of the Government, and for the State to take her
formor position io tbe Union, to have Senator j and Rep
resentatives admltte'T to Congress and enjoy tho rights
and discharge the obligations of a State under the
Constitution of the United States as ameuded. He bt
i llbves the sentiment of the people of Georgia iu the ex
ercise of tbe right of Secess.on, was resorted to from a
desiro to rendjr their liberties and Institutions secure,
and the belief on their part that this was absolu'ely ne
cessary for that object. He further believes that their
opinion now Is that the surest if no', the only hope for
their liberties, is the restoration of ths Government of
the United States and of tbe Government nuder It He
beUeves the people are sufficiently satisfied with the ex
periment never to resort to that modo of re Iress a gain
by force; whatever their abstract views on the subject
they have come to the conclusion that it is botter to ap
peal to the forum of reason and justice, to the hall of
legislation aod tho courts, for the preservation of the
principles of Constitutional liberty, than the ar ena of
the army. The idea of Secession Is totally abandoned.

fbxedmen b bureau.
Washington papers of the 13th state that
Gen. Howard has written a long letter to tbe House
Committee on Freedmen's Affairs in regard to further
legislation respecting his Bureau. He urges that it is
necessary, for several reasons, among which may be
specified that a bill signed by the Executive would give
gr. at moral weight and power to the Bureau, as its ene
mies believe, or profess to believe, that the Government
is opposed to its operation. Something should be done,
he also says, to foster education. He believes it would
be a measure of real economy to make provision for
schools, and suggo-ts that grants of public lands have
often been made for much less worthy objects than this
would be. He urgeB this consideration at ?orne length.
He thinks the duty of tbe officers and agents of the
Bureau should be more clearly defined by law, and not
left so much to military orders. Ihe Sea Island ques
tion should be settled by statutory euactment, tho more
e pecially as the fretdmen who hold grants under Gen.
Sherman's order are thoroughly convinced that (he
lands rightfully belong to them. The President should
be empowered to retain volunteer officers who are need
ed an ngonts of the Bureau in service after the muster
out of their riHpectivo re';iiu?nt?.

3he reported amnesty proclamation.
Ho also states that the report has been repeated from
time to time for tbe past threo mouths, that the Presi
dent is on tbe eve of issuing a general amnesty procla
mation. There is nothing to warrant such rumors;
nor, bo far as can be ascertained, has the subject been
brought to tbe attention of tbe Cabinet. The policy of
snch a measure has not been agitated In official circles;
and whatever has been said in newspapers on the sub
j ct Is mere conjecture.
rumors oy cabinet c ha no ks.
Tbe HeroJd't correspondent under date of the 12th*
Tbe usual number and-variety of rumors concerning
Cabinet reconstruction have been afloat for several days
past, but none of them appear to have much truth In
their composition. Tbe Radicals openly asserted for
months that tbe President was practically poworlesa to
remove any of his Cabinet officers, inasmuch as tbe
Sena'e would never confirm those appointed to succcod
them, snd the present triune- ' - would retain thelr
positlouB until successors* were confirmed ; but in this
they aro greatly mistaken^. All the laws and prc:edents
establish tbe President's), power of removal. He can ap
point a successor to any! member << k* .atdnet at any
t me, wbo would thereujpon enteren the duties of the
office to which be was .B^olnted/mmodiately, and act as
the bead of the rti partiurt?Nt/ iiinn, or until ho was
confirmed or rejected by tbe Senato. There is no law pre
-Settling that inch appointments- ahall be ircmcJiaccly.
'sent to the Equate, and wveks of delay might ensue be
fore -the appointee woald be rejected if obnoxious to
that body. Tbe President would then havo the vacancy
to refill, and the Senate the same right of rejection, and
so on indefinitely. The essential and practical right of
removal the President undoubtedly has, as more than
one of bis Cabinet wUl learn rbould they provoke or
challenge him to extrciso it This Bubject has been re
peatedly discussed since tho organization of the govern
ment and the same conclusions invariably reached, No
longor ago than tho winter of lHOU-ol tbe Secretary of
War was removed by the President *" 1 Joseph Holt ap
pointed to his place without the L isent or sdvlco of tbe
r cnate. That body was not even, notified of the removal
until after the passage of a resolution introduced by
blidell, of Louisiana, calling upon tho President for In
formation on the Bubject

In reply to a resolution of inquiry from tho Senate,
Postmaster-General Denulson iuforms that body tbatno
appointments to offices of salaries or emoluments under
the Postoffice Department have been made in 8outhorn
States without tho teat oath being taken unaltered and
senator btbwabt's proi-oscd constitutional amend
Tho Senator from Nevada who recently, on the shallow
recommendations of the Radicals, has magnified him
self in his own estimation into the proportions of a
statesman, seems to be v -ry uneasy in regard to affairs
of state, and displays great indecision in tbe responsi
ble task of leallog the distractions of tbe country?a
labor which he had of late entirely assumed to himself.
This morning, tbora being a large gathering in the gal
leries to listen to tbe eulegtes on the late Senator Foot,
the Nevadi Senator seized tbe opportunity to offer a
'ubs itute-for the late amendment to his original resolu
tion, of which the following is a copy :
Article ?. Section 1.?AU discriminations among
the people because of race, color or previous condition
of servitude, either in civil rights or tho right of sut
frige, aro prohibited; bnt the States may exempt per
sons now voters from : cslrtctions on suffrage bereifter
(-ec. 2. Obligations Incurred in aid of the insurrec
tion, or of war ag inst the Union, and c'altns for com
pensation of slaves emancipated, are void, and shall
not be assumed or paid by any State or by tho United

Tbe New York Herald, a ft* days ago, in an editorial,
charged the Radical party with tbe intention of building
up a "genuine nigger aristocracy." The Trilmr.e tab
he Herald to task about it, and bandies snch compli
mentary epithets as'-Bar" and "villaiiL" The Herald
of Friday lact, in another editorial, makes zu elaborate
d?fonce of the assertion. It winds np by aayiug:
We bavo proven from bills paused by tho Radicals
that fhey desire to give the nigger unconstitutional
rights; to protect him by military jurisdiction; to cm
ploy numerous extraordinary agents for his beneilt; to
eut'orce his contracts by martial law, to depnvo those
wbo differ with him of the right of jury and of previous
Indictment: to furuish him a special tribunal, bcynni
which tbere is no appeal; to graut him uullmlted sup
port; to reut or ru; chase lauds for him; to erect lor
him schools and asylums at the national expense: to
organize a b>-hU m for his entire care, support and con
trol; to give htm the preference ovrr intelligent foreign
era in regard to citizenship ; to create for him a special
police; to maintain for hliu a etauding army, whose
only business is to guard his domestic and industrial
iuterests; to devise for him a series of laws nevor boforc
contemplated iu our history; to establish for him safe
guards never provided for the white race, and to dis
criminate iu his favor ayaiust the whites. In other
wordH, we have shown that "tho party opposed to tho
President xcuid build up an aristocracy of three mil
lions of negroes, having peculiar rights and privileges,
and superior to white ineuiu every legal respect." And
now we leave the public to decide who is the dar," who
(a ihe''vUlain.*' who has been guilty of "a wicked, de
liberate, villainous lie."
Tho fright of the Canadians over tho demonstrations
of tho Fenians at Kastport, and their excitement over
the capture of Head Centre Murphy and bis friends at
Cornwall, mpcar to have in no way abated. The resi
dents of Campobello Island are flymg from that threat
ened point, while St. Stepheus, and indeed all !< ew
Bruns?i<.k, is arou'ed and agitated by the appearance
of a small Keuian force at Calais. It was supposed that
the Fenians were leaving Eastport for Calais, and were
about to make a descent on St Stcpnens instead of
Campobello. At a'l poin'B iu the British provinces fears
appear to be entertained of a raid. The government au
thorities appear to think tbe Campobello demonstration
es a feint i niy, and are preparing for the appearance of
an invading force along the Magara frontier. Cabinet
meetings were held daily, volunteering was very brisk
and much feeling and a great deal more fright is gene

TBX AHMT DILI,
The Washington correspondent of the New York
Times, under date of 13th, sayi :
The Army Bill came up In the House to-day as the
specia1 order, and its consideration was proceeded with.
It is in the sha^e of a substitute reported by Mr.
8chcnok for the Sonate Bill, and it proposes to establish
a tkeleton organization of fifty-five regiments of infan
try, twelve of cavalry, and five of artillery, having a
mtmtmnm number c f twenty thousand men in time of
peace, but capable of being expanded to eighty-two
thousand wh?n rendered necessary. Ten cf tue regi
ments of infantry are to be of veteran reserves, aud
eight of colored troops, officered by competent officers
from those heretofore in command of these classes of
troops respectively. This bill will meet with strong op
position, and can hardly hope to piss without mat rial
amendment. It attracts cIcbo attention in the House,
where there are a largo uumbo-of ex-offlers of trie
trmy, many ol them aolo and practical, among whom
may be mentioned Generals Banks, Garfield, Schenck,
Rousseau, Paiuc, Ketchan, Hayes, Demiog, Loan,
Harding, of Illinois, Cobb Stillwcll, Buckland, Farns
worth, Washburne, of Indiana, and others.
THE ASSASSINATION cii.vcues AQAINST MR. DAVIS.
Another correspondent of same dale says:
The House Judiciary Committee are holding daily
sessions for the purp' so of examining into tho alleged
connection of Jeff. Davis with the conspiracy plot to
assassinate Mr. Lincoln aud his Cabluot. It appotrs
that Judge Holt, who is at the head of the Bureau of
Military Justice, has been engaged for a long time in
accumulating evidonce in regard to thia matter. Ho
has got enough, it Is claimed, such as it is, to hang not
only Jefferson Davis, but all tho leading officials con

I donee has been transmitted to the Judiciary Committee.
Most of tho testimony which has been furnished the
I Government is from persons of doubtful character.'
President Johnson always regarded it as entitled to
little credit Secretary S antou and Judgo Holt thought
it sufficiently strong to warrant the trial of Tavis and
others by a military commission. What view the Judi

howevor excellent, is doomed to encounter.
it stands at tbe head of all the tonic and alterative prep
arations in existence. Its celebrity has evoked many
imitations, but no rivals Physicians pronounce it the
only safe stimulant that has ever been introduced into
the sick chamber. In the Hospitals of the Army and
Navy, tbe surgeons find it tho very best tonic for con
valescents, and teport it as invaluable for sustaining the
vigor of troops cn the march,as a r.rncdy for scurvy
and all scorbutic affections, and as the only specific for
sea-sicknes*. California and Australia lave emphatical
ly endorsed It as the Mix en's M edicink par excellence
and in Vpanish America and all the tropical climates it
h considered tho only reliable antidote to epidemic
There is no mystcrv about the causes of its success.
It is tho only stomachic and alterative In which are com
bined tbe grand requisites of a mild, pure and unvltl
ated vegetable stimulant, with the finest selection of
tonic, anti-bilious, anti-scorbutic, aperient and depun
tlvo herbs, plants, roots and barks that havo cvor been
Intermixed in a medicinal preparation.

shared, it is believed, by any tonic, tincture ur extract
In tho world: they d-j not excite tbe pulse, though they
infuse a wonderful deftreo of vigor into tho nervous
system, and strengthen and sustain tho whoi- physical
It is also proper to state that tbe Bitters are sold ex
clusively in glass, and never under any circumstinccs
by tho gallon or tho barrel. Impostors and imitators
