SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 28. 1866.
TUE PHILADELPHIA CONVENTION.
The columns of our Southern papers, we
are gratified to notice, give indication that
the people are fully alive to the impor
tance of an able representation in the Na
tional ?Convention, to moot next month in Phil
adelphia. They are selecting their ablest
and most reliable mon, and aro preparod to
givo thoir ontiro support to whatever moa
B?ros tho Convention may adopt, that may bo
calculated to restore poaoo and harmony to
the oountry, and at last put to rest the nefari
ous and interneoino agitation that has been
harassing our ontiro section ever sinoo the
oIobc of the war.
If wo understand tho tomper of our people
aright, they are disposed to go into this Con
vention with the single motive above indi
cated. We havo no ulterior view to subservo;
no engineering of party measures* no oanvas
sing for tbe next ProBidonoy; no seeking of
fat sinecures or big pilos of Congressional
mileage. We want peace, an end of strife,
and equality with tbe other States in the
Union. "We regret, tboreforo, the agitation
we observe going on the Northern prints; the
organs of eaoh party endeavoring to claim
the Convention for their own, evidently hav
ing an eye to the coming elections, and the
" balance of power. " .
We are sorry also to see in the New York
Times, professedly one of the strongest sup
porters of President Johnson's policy of re
construction, an assertion that a test of somo
kind would bo required to become a momber
of this Convention. The Times thinks that
tho Congressional test oath will be dispensed
with, but that all late rebels who have volun
tarily horne arms against the Union must
como provided with President Johnson's
pardon; and that Copperheads, i. c, mon in the
North who wore opposed to the Union during
tho war, would bo altogothor oxcluded.
But from tho very natur o of tho cuse thr?
m, ... .?p^iiu. uuhuuriiaiively on the
subject, inasmuch as tho Couvoulion itself,
with tho "oalF as a basis, must douido all
these questions; and wo can soo no good that
can arise from-.the discussion of any meas
ures that aro calculated to give a partiari
character to tho Convention.
Wo hope our Northern friends,-all truo
lovers of the Union,-will forget minor dif
ferences, and make one great united effort, and
assist us with all their might to rout the
common enomy. The Radicals are wido
awake, and aro marshalling thoir foroes,
and unless the friends of the Union make a
combined and vigorous effort at resistance,
our ohanae of success must be small.
ANOTHEB TURN OF THE SCREW.
A telegraphic dispatch from Washington,
dated the 25th inst., contains the following
An Act passed the House of Representatives
ainendatory of tho Act of 1798, establishing' judi
cial courts. The amendment provides that the Act
of habeas corpus shall not apply to tho caso of any
person who itj or may bo held in the custody of
tho military authorities of the United Sta"teB,
charged with any military offences, or with hav
ing aided or abetted rebellion against the United
?tates prior to the passage of tho Act.
When this bill shall become a law, the
Republic will have passed away, and a mili
tary despotism exist in its piuco. The mea
sure apparently is directed only against a
certain olas?, but the wording of the bill will
carry its effect far boyond this narrow limit,
and deprive every citizen without exception
of the benefit of the Habeas Corpus Act. This
bill makes it a sufficient answer to a writ of
habeas corpus to allege that tho prisoner is
held for a military offence, or is charged with
having been engaged in rebellion against tho
United States prior to the passage of the
Who will be secure of personal liborty un
der such a law ? The most loyal citizen of
the Union, if he should offend even a subal
tern offioer of the army, would be liablo to
arrest, and could only depend for his release
upon superior military authority. The civil
courts would be powerless to do anything in
his behalf. Tho writ of habeas corpus would
be answered by an allegation of a military
offence, and tho civil judioiary would bo
bound by this law to consider that a sufficient
True, this bill has only passed the House
of Representatives, and is very improperly
styled an Act in the telegram. Before it can
become a law it must be agrocd to hy the
Senate, and reoeivo the signaturo of the Presi
dent, or, laoking his signature, must receivo
a two-thirds vote of -both branohes of the na
tional legislature. Nevertheless, the history
of the present Congress justifi?e us in ?Assam
ing that tho :>il 1 will become a law, despite
the Prc?idott'evoto. That ho will ve;o it we
cannot for a moment doubt Its un-onstitu
tionulity is too pal pablo to escape the pene
tration of ANDREW JOHNSON. It l8 in filOt
an amendment to the Constitution, under the
guise of an Aot of Congress.
By tho Bill of Rights, which was mado a
part of the Conetitution of the United States,
ovory maa is entitled to the benofit of the
writ of habeas corpus, and no man, be he over
so vile a robel, oan be lawfully deprived of
this great bulwark of liberty until tho Consti
tution bos been altered in this respoot.
Moreover, the Conatitntion expressly pro
vides that Congress shall not pass any ex
post facto law. This bill would deprivo a
citizen of a right on account of a crime com
mitted, or alleged to be committed, prior to
its passago ; a^ud if this bill on its very face
does not como clearly within the definition of
an ex post facto law, wo are at a loss to know
the monning of the term.
The President has repeatedly oxpressod his
determined opposition to all class legislation,
and this bill comes bo manifestly uuder that
bead, that on that ground alone it would bo
sure to moot with his disapprobation. There
fore, when wo take into consideration both its
unconstitutional!ty and ' its partiality, wo are
doubly Bure that it will be vetoed.
Ou the other hand, whoa we consider the
transactions of the prosont Congress, from the
timo whoD they first assembled in the Cupitol
until now, and more especially when we con
sider their late conduct in regard to the pas
sage of tho Frccdmen's Bureau Bill, and their
still moro indocout bohavior on the reading
of the President's messngo on the Tonnossoo
resolution,-we feel equally certain that they
will overrule the veto in this oaso as they did
Tho determination of the Radicals in Con
gress to disregard the Constitution, and to
use their present position to secure their party
in perpetual power, has become'so evident,
and is so openly acknowledged by themselves,
that it wore a waste of time to discuss ovi
donocs ofthat fact A graver accusation has,
however, been lately brought against that
party,-one that is of such serious import to
tho welfare of the nation that it is command
ing universal attention. They are charged
with a design to resort to arms to keep their
hold on power, if they oannot accomplish that
objeot in any other way.
If this is so, the people should know it, in
order that, boing forewarned, they may be
forearmed. Their seoret oonolaves in Wash
ington, and the bill to arm the militia of tho
Northern States, point strongly in that direc
tion; and now in this bill conoorrihig the writ
of habeas corpus another indication may bo de
tected, though skilfully hidden. ,
Who ever heard of a law to punish exclu
sively ?rimes committed in tho past and hav
, . _?..um uuvuuuo i iot hero
ia a law which, while directly against tho
letter und spirit of the Constitution, imposes
a disability to robollion already oommittod,
docs not bold that disability in terrorcm over
Why is this? The majority in Congress
aro essentially partir?n in all their acts. They
make laws not for the good of tho 'country,
but for the benefit of themselves and their
friends, and for the punishment of their ene
mies, the people of tho South. They feel
confident that the Southerners will never
again be rebels, and, as far as they aro con
cerned, the punishment of future rebellion
would be useless; but they aro not so sure
about themselves; they are determined to
have their way, rebellion or no robollion,
and therefore they are careful not to prepare
a way for their own destruction. Hence this
unprecedented retrospective legislation.
