MONDAY MORNTNO; FEBRUARY 25.1867.
BRIG ADIER-GENERALI2ISC THE
In our Saturday's issue wo published the full
text of the Military Reconstruction Bill, which
passed the United States Senate on the evening of
the 20th. Wo now propose-to examino into its pro?
visions a little further. It opona with.a preamble:
"Whereas no legal-State governments or adequate
protection for life or property now exista in tho;
Rebel States of Virginia," otc.,-"and whereas it
is iii.oeasary that peace and good order should oe :
enfoicedin the said States until loyal and Repub?
lican State governments can bo legally establish?
ed."'AU mero assertion, without a word of well-sub?
stantiated proof; yet deemed sufficient reason for
a most unwarrantable interference with constitu?
tional liberty. But it is evident the main outlines
of this reconstruction policy had been pre-de
terminod, and that the reasons for the. same were
afterwards prefixed, to preserve a show of consis?
tency. - ..>.
If Congress really mean what they say in thia
preamble, they declare the ten Southern States in
anarchy; there is no la?r, and every our, who secs
fit so to do, may commit any crime with impunity.
It is idle for us to contradict these, assump?
tions. They are not facts, nor even.baaed' on fact.
This our readers know; and thia also know the.
members of Congress who. enacted the SHERMAN
WBLSOT?-SHELLABAEGKE BilL The people of the
North, many of them at least, doubtless behove
the assertion contined in the aforesaid preamble;
but, as nothing that wo can say vrli reach them,
we forbear dweltog.further on this part of the Bul.
The South then is .divided into five miHtary dis?
tricts, of which Morth and South Carolina shall
constitute the second ; and the President assigns
an officer of the army to each of these districts, so
that our allowance in that part of the new military
district, lately known as the State of South Carolina,
will be just half a brigadier. Said brigadier can,
if he sees .fit, leave intact the existing State govern?
ment, (in so far at least- as the administration of
justice is concerned), or h? may organise Military
Commissions for the trial of offenders. ' ' -
It gives him unlimited power, both judicial'and
executive, the only restriction being '.that the ap?
proval of . the ftesideht is necessary, before any
sentence of death can be carried into effect under
this Act. He can, ifhe sees fit, set aside the entire.
machinery of local government, and- with' his
agents take their place. The Provost Marshall
may sit in the Court of Sessions and Con?mon
Pleas. The Oenral, or one of his assistants, run
the Chancery Courts.. The Assistant Provost Maxi
s li alls will, perhaps, furnish our local .columns
with the items hitherto supplied by the Mayor's
It is a curious feature, certainly, in nine?
teenth century civilization, to see the whole machi?
nery of a "constitutional" government, executive,
judicial, and legislative, in . the hands, of .a legally
constituted military despot, to all intents anA . pur?
poses absolute within the limits of his department.
The. privilege of liabeas corpus is not suspend?
ed,-as was the. case in STKYENS' original of this
Bill,-but there will be such 'difficulties connected
with the issuing of vrrits, etc., thai wo fear it will
not be often resorted to; especially as the Sd sec?
tion of the Bill contains a clause declaring null
and void "all interference, under color of State au?
thority, with the exe i eise of military!, authority
under this Act." . -
But the civil side of tho Court is even worse, if
possible: There there is not even ' a military .com?
mission to try the causes. Whatever is done is.
left purely ana absolutely m the commandant's
discretion. He is . not bound io report his deci?
sions to any one, but may sit, as SAINT Lona," of j
Franc?,. us; d to, under a ! tree by!tho road-aide,
and administer primitive justice to whoe ver comes,
with or without'''money or price." The whole
property of a State (says the Cincinnati Commer?
cial, in a sensible article on thia measure), will be
at his discretion, and if he becomes rich, he may
say, as WARBEN- HASXHWS did of his. wealth
amassed in India, that "he is amazed that he did
not become rioher, since all the treasures of the
country were at his feet. It is useless to say that
it is not anticipated that local tribunals will be en- j
tirely set aside when-the military office is ful"y
and in explicit terms authorized to set thom" all
aside, and their authority, even if they are per?
mitted to exist, is fatally' attacked when they are.
declared to be parts of a "pretended" Govern- ?]
nient. :"'-'-:: . '. : ....'.".."- ;
But section 5th shows a way of escape. This
Act is only, provisional-the exercise of military
authority only temporary. Certain conditions hav?
ing been complied wjfch, the Brigadier makes his
bow, and weean go to Congress. The following are
tho conditions: " : - .
j 1. The people of the said rebel States may form
a constitutional government. ' - '" "
' 2. Such government, must. be framed by a con?
vention. . . ; , K \
\ 3. The delegates to. this Convention are to.be
elected by male citizens of said State twenty-one
years old and upward, of wliateve^race.-e^yoiM
previous condition, excepting. only a certain class"
of "rebeJe," and likewise convicted criminals.
; i. The constitution, framed hythe convention,
appointed as aforesaid, is to confer suffrage on all.
except the parties excluded as above.
5. This constitution is-to be ratified by a maj OD
ifcy of the people,-all rsceB, colors, conditions,
etc, except "rebels" of a certain degree, and crim- |
6. The Constitution ia next tobe submitted to
Congress for examination and approval.
But the State is not yet ripe "for admission to the
Union. More still wi? be required from the pro?
7. When^ngreaaahauhaye approved the jCon
atitution thus made and ratified,, and when said
State by a vote pf ita teg?al?turej elected under,
such Constitution, shall have adopted, the " Con
stitutibal Amendment," and ? when ? said Amend?
ment shall have become a part of the Constitution
of the United States, said State shall be declared
entitled to representation1 in' Congress ; "and .-..?'.[
8. Senators and Representatives shall'be admit?
ted therefrom on their taking the oath known as
the Iron Clad.'
9. Then and thereafter the preceding Sections
DI this Act .shall be inoperative in said State,.
10. Now conies -Wilson's amendment, provid^a
ihatno person excluded from tho privilege othold
ng office by the Howard amendment shalll'bef eh
rible to election as a member of the Convention to
ramo a constitution for any 'of these States ; 5ior
ihall any such person vote for said convetftuW.'i'
11. Sheliabarger'a amendaient (Section 6th of the
?ill) goea on to Bay, that until the said Bebel States
ball be by law admitted tb representation in Con
tresa, any civil government which may. exist there- j
n shall be deemed provisional only, subject to the
>aramount authority of the United States at ; any
ime to abolish, modify, control or supersede the
lame. '"'" ''"' .i'D-" 'V .-^ ."-...> ...?-. ...- .-"
12. "In all olectipns to any ofBce under such
>rovisional governments, all persons shall be en
itlod to vote, and none other," as above set forth ;
. e., all negroes over tw e nty-on o j ears bf age may
'Ote, bot only such whites as are not disqualified
rom holding office by th? Sd section of the Con-;
titutional Amendment. . .. .'-.'[
In case this Bill becomes a* law, our future
s indeed lamentable \ tot it seems by sec-'
ion 6, that, after all the prehniinaiy steps,
i amorous, tedious, unjust , and exacting though
hey be,-shall have been complied with, in the :
w>rgan?iation ot the new State Governments,
Congress may still at any time "see flt to modify/ i
rte, and- keep ns ont another four yeais.' De- I
?dedly disheartening. -
WBO I? DMnmnfmsum,
Saturday, we expressed oar views on the mean
ng of the 3d Sec tion of the Constitntional ?mend
nent. As thora is,, however, a variety of opinions,
m the subject, we again give the text of tisis'
iSxoxiojr 8. No person shall hi ? r?ei?tor o?'Bm
.esentatlve inCcagrese, or Elebt? o* Pre^noentor
Ree President or how, any oSloa, civil or miUtarv 8
mder the Unite .1 States or under any State, who

is a men^ rf any State Legislature, or iJsri ex
>?utiye or Judicial ofScor of any State, to (rapport
The Constitution of the Cm tod States, shall hare 1
engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the I
same, or Riven aid and comfort to tho enemies
thereof. But Congress may, by a vote of two
thirds of each House, remove auch disability.
By the Wilson amendment tho persons disquali?
fied in tho foregoing soction from holding office,
are likewise prevented from voting. The. Bich
mond Examiner of Friday gives ita version as
?s wo read tho third section, any man may be
elected to the Legislature. But there is no other
position of honor to which tho proscribed classes
are eligible. The proscribed classes of Bichmond,
(and every, where o iso; we use Bichmond for. illus-,
tration,) are .all men who at any time previous to
the war, no matter how long before, did as officers
of any sort, or members of any legislativo body,
talco an oath to, 'support the Constitution of the
United States, ahdwho afterwards engaged in re?
bellion, or ?ave " aid and comfort to the enemies"
of the United States. Tho taking . of the oath to
[ support tho Constitution-of the Confederate States
and the holding of office under tho Confedorato
States no "matter bow high the office, create no
; disability to vote or hold office under this section.
Neither is any mar. disqualified for offico by reason
of having takonaa oath to support the Constitution
of tho United States and afterwards engaging in re?
bellion, &c., provided ho did not take said oath, as
an officer, ic. Lawyers are not disqualified'AB
such, although boforo tho.war every- ono had to
take that oath, but only Buch of them are disquali?
fied as had hold office. These .explanations are'
mode in answer to questions propounded to us. It
is supposed'there are about one hundred and fifty
mon in Richmond disqualified by the third section
for ho . ding office, and by the reconstruction bill'
for voting for members of a convention to form a
new Constitution for tho State. They can only be
rendered eligible to office by a vote of two-thirds
of each Ho .iso of Congress. - AU persons who were
formerly justices of the peace, judges, assembly?
men, Sec., aro disqualified. '. ' ... ..!'.."
The enfranchised class consists of negroes. . The -
i Bill provides that, whether we ratify the Constitu
| tional Amendment or not, negroes shall hereafter ?
vote for all officers of the "provisional govern?
ment," as our masters : are pleased to term our
J State Government. Negroes, however, are not
eligible to office." ' ",.
It is supposed ' there will bo about double as
many white as black voters in Virginio.
The present .Legislature cannot ratify the
J amendment. It must be done by a Legislature to j
bo elected under a constitution hereafter to be

Sm: I have been using your "Soline Oil" for some

economical burning fluid I have ever used. It gives a j
steady and beautiful soft light, and I can say from erpo- j
ri ance that the article obtained from you ia not explosive,
but is perfectly safe in the hands of any one.
