fears are entertained of not being ablo to preservo

effected with the rot. Walnuts and chestnuts have
produced the ordinary quantity. The disasters of
tho silkworm culture add darker shadows to the
picture. The cider fruits offer a valuable re?
source, and several special crops, such as hemp
and colza, have been good. There is, therefore,
some compensation for the evil, and above all,

WEDNESDAY HORNING, JANUARY 30,18G7.
ON THE FENCE.
The "little Villain" of the New York Times ap?
pears to be ambitious of gaining the title of Trim?
mer. His political shiftinga are of auch frequent
recurronce, that it ia not easy to keep pace with
them. On the floor of the House, recently, speak?
ing on STEVENS' Reconstruction Bill, ho said that
the will of the people [he means the Radicals of
the North, we suppose,] of late had settled several
questions. Ono of them is that they have ex?
pressed their dissatisfactibu with the President's
plan of reconstruction; that ho himself (Mr. RAY?
MOND) had- eoncurtcd in the President's opinion,
and still thought that if that course had been
taken in the early period of tho disunion, it would
have conduced largely to heal the body politic.
Bt?t that policy would not answer now.
It is clear, also, he said, that the people had pro?
nounced the Constitutional Amendment of last
session as tho wisest and best basis of adjustment
of which tho question was susceptible; and that
thc ;vople had docided, furthermore, that they
would uer trust this whole subject to Congress
than io thc- Executive.
After /.dmittnig this much, mildly admonishing
hi? hearns, 'as it were, that he was not going io
oppose anything very violently, that ho waa very
repentant 6f former horesy, and henceforth meant
to vote with the majority,-*he goes ou to say that
the governments now in operation in the South?
ern States were de facto governments, absolutely
necessary for the protection of society there, cud
better than a state of anarchy. Ho submitted that
the establishment of martial law would give no ad?
ditional protection to lifo and property in tho
?outh, because it would depend for its execution
ou the President, and if ho did not oxacutc tin
Freedmen's Bureau Bill or the Civil Rights Bill,
how could they calculate on his executing martial
kw? Be/erring to the provisions of tho bill,
which declarea that any abrogation or chango of
tba conditions imposed would cause a forfeiture of
representation in Congress, ho expressed his con?
viction that if those States were in tho Union,
undor'and by rirtue of tho Constitution, Congross
would have no shadow of right for forfeiting their
i oyresontation; and if the Constitution were bind?
ing orfCongi eBs it could not enact into a law the
bill now proposed,, though tuero are those who
ihink thifc Congress can act without reference to
the Constitution on the subject.
The Supreme Court, however, bad declared that
the Constitution must be the supreme law for the
whole people, for ruters and the people/uncior all
circumstances. Mr. RATJ?OND said that he was
not prepared to side with those who think Con?
gress is not bound by tho Constitution, m r could
he agree with the Supremo Court. H'.' Stinkscir?
cumstances should alter cases. Lu othjr words,
Mr. RAYMOND, although bound hand and foot, self
[ delivered to his Radical master?, still throws out
j mild protests; whether to save his conscience, or
j to make a feint show, of cona is tener, it were dim- (
I cult to say. .
Ono objection, he. stated, that he had to the Con?
stitutional Amendment submitted last session,
was that - it did not embody all the guarantees
which he thought tho action required; that the
Constitution should distinctly state, that if here?
after any State should seoode, such State should
thereby forfeit all share of power in tho govern?
ment of the Repu bbc. His objection to Mr.
STEVENS' Bill was tha+ it merely proposed a law;
there is nothing stable in it. The Supreme Court
might annul it; or anothor Congress might repeal
Mr. STEVENS' BUL he said, would simply implant
in every Southern State a revolutionary govern?
ment. There would bo two govcrnmente in each
State then contending for ascendency, and it was
impossible that they should not como into col?
lision. It might be said that the power of tho na?
tion would bonsor ted to sustain the one now to be
organized. But, who would wield that power?
The President, uot Congress. Looking at this
Bill from a practical point of view, it was plain
that ita enactment would simply organizo a now
conflict in every one of those Southern States.
Ibis Bill, therefore, would perpetuate strife, and
Now, if this moans anything, it is a strong argu?
ment for impeaching the President with a view to
his removal. But this, we know, is not Mr. RAY
KOSD'S intention, for the New York Times, of
whioh he is the editor, has uniformly pronounced
against it. A fow days ago, in its editorial columns,
it published a commiuncation signed "Free Soil,''
which, it is understood, was written by Mr. RAY?
MOND himself,-presenting a most powerful argu?
ment against the impeachment of the President by
Congress; pointing to ibo financial crisis already
brought on-by the mere agitation of the subject,
md showing that a terrible revolution and most
sanguinary civil war must bo the inevitable consa.
quencos of a further prosecution of the present
course of the dominant party in Congress. Now,
in view of all this, what can Mr. RAYMOND mean
LU his speech, in thus apparently urging upon
Congress the necessity of an impeachment ?
Ho next proceeded to say 'ew words in favor
5f a "national" government. The consolidation
if gu?ernment was going on all over, the world,
so that it was not a soutimont peculiar to the
imorican people. People wore hocoming in favor
yt strong governments ovorywhere, as instanced
in the recent history of Franco. Italy, Germany
?md the Brit?h North American Provinces; but
jousolidation should- bo kept within limits ar.d
pratchod with a jealous care." Aa wed talk of regu
iating & tornado. Tho truth is, wo are oven KOW
in the very midst of a revolution, and Mr. RAY?
MOND'S feeble protests can be likened to nothing
jotter than the attempt of tho celebrated Mrs.
Partington, when, in' her simplicity, she essayed
lo keep out the Atlantic with a pitchfork. Finally
ie wound up this 'extraordinary, trimming Bpeoch
>y saying he believed that if strife did come, thc
lation would einorgo out of it stroug, hearty, freo,
preserving its liberty aa a republic^ und enforcing
ts roBpec't on ail the nations of the oarth by tho
strength, the self-command, the adherence to aulv
itantial -justice- and right which it would never
?case to exhibit.
Now, to which party belongs Mi*. RAYMOND?
Certainly not to tho Democratic, or the Jnhm-on
Conservative, nor yet to tho Radicals. Hu would
aiu, wo presume, establish au. eclecticism. Por
lapa ho is ambitious of emulating HENKY CLAY'S
.osition, and dosiros to go down to posterity as
he great compromiser. But wc fear he is uot tho
nan for the times, and, if known at all to the next
reneration, it will be only as the ''Little Villain''
if the Times.

[uished Professor at Edinburgh, recently deliv

imerica had produced-tho greatest of all social
yrannies," and "protested against thc depraving

Opinion of the Rev. Mr. Eepiton in regard to the
uah ty of the Solino Oil:
WILMINGTON, N. C., 31st December, 1866.
Sm: I have been using your "Soline Oil" for some
imo in a night lamp, and find it the safest and most
oouomical burning finkl I have ovor used. It gives a
toady and beautiful soft light, and I can say from expe
lonco that thc article obtained from you is not explosive,
ut is perfectly safo in tho hands of any ono.
