Tiew he has offered to make an absolute trans- ?

wbich may be derived from carrying on his bu?

-The Washington Star says : "It is a ra?
ther singular circumstance that the difficulty
how existing in regard to the Secretaryship of
the Treasury should also have baon met in tho
. .experience of the lato Confederate States Gov- I
ernment. It will bc remembered that when
that coucern wis set up thc United States sta?
tutes at largo were adopted and put in force
bodily, which, of course, included thc acts im?
posing restrictions on tho office in question.
In time, Hr. Trenholm. one of tho largest
merchants in the South, was called to tho
Treasury Department, and he Mk d tho o?ioo
for some time before his ineligibdity was dis?
covered. When it was pointe! out ho severed
his connection with all mercantile interestsin
this country, elthougb wc believe he main?
tained his relations with a loreign houso."
-The spring cloctions throughout tho in?
terior of New Yorlc State 6ho\v a very gratify?
ing incieaso ot Democratic strength. Pough?
keepsie has electod a Democratic Mayor, for
?he first time in its municipal existence, by a
majority of more than 200. Newburg has
heretofore been strongly Republican, eh cting
city officers of that stripe, and giving a ma
j ority for Grant fast fall. The Democracy bas
now made a clean sweep, electing tbe whole
municipal ticket except ono Alderman and one
Supervisor. For tho past three years tho Re?
publicans have carr.ed thc City of Oswcgo.hut
last week the I emocrats elected their candidate
by a majority tbe largest ever received by
a mayor in that city. Columbia County has
made a gain securing a two-thirds majority in
the Board of Supervisors. In Utica the suc?
cess of the Democracy is unparalleled, and in
Elmira it has carried all before it. In Saratoga,
Erie, Cayuga and Ulster Counties. Jarge gains
have been made, and throughout the Sta lo thc
indications are moat encouraging. ComiDg so
soon after the Republican success of last fall
and at thc very time of tho inauguration of the
new government, these returns are gravely
siguiiicant of a rapid change in the prevailing
popular seutimcnt, foreshadowing a speedy
return of the masses to the support of the
party of economy, equal rights and constitu?
tional govern meat.
-A curious case has been brought to thc
notice of the State Depaitment, by a resolution
of the illinois Legislature, which will undoubt?
edly give rise to considerable diplomatic cor?
respondence, at least, between this government
and those of Wurtemberg and B" varia. It
appears that some forty years ago a member
of the royal family having left that State to
marry in opposition to the royal will, a law was
ouactcd declaring all marriages of the subjects
of that State, when contracted abroad, to be
null and void. A similar law was also enacted
in Bavaria. A case has now for the first time
arisen where a marriage in tho United StateB
has been pronounced illegal under this law.
Not long since ibo widow of a naturalized citi?
zen of Illinois and a native cf Bavaria returned
to tbat country to claim an inhei itance be?
queathed to her husband, when she was in?
formed that the government ,of Bavaria recog?
nized no marriages in tho United States as
valid, as far as they related to Bavarian citi?
zens, and bbc was compelled to drop the Dame
ot her husband aud take her maiden name,
thu3 virtually declaring her children illegiti?
mate. It is the duty of this government to
have the obnoxious laws repealed immediately,
or at least rendered inoperative as far as they
relate to American citizens.
-The New York Herald says Parson Brown?
low presen ts the most extraordinary picture of
physical debility that was ever before witness?
ed in any legislative assembly. Thad. Stevens
might have been considered, when brought
into the Senato Chamber on men's shoulders
to take bis pl?co among the managers in the
memorable day* ol the impeachment trial, tho
best illustration up to that time presented of
the triumph of intellectual will over a shattered
and prostrate bodily organism; but Brownlow's
appearance shows even greater indications of
physical wreck and ruin, and yet the latter
lacks nothing of the same unconquerable men?
tal fire and energy that marksd to his latest
moments the character of the Great Common?
er. When taking the oath Brownlow lay back
in his chair, his head bent down, his face
shrivelled, ghastly and of unearthly hue,
his hands clasped in bony, vice-like grasp,
and his wholo appearance indicative of
great physical dcpro3sion. As Mr. Co!
fax read the oath tho poor old Parson raised
his feeble arm, which shook with palsy .ind
dropped every moment to his side. Assistant
Sergeant-at-arms Bassett went over and sus?
tained his arm through the remainder of thc
ceremony, thoo uh the old man mado ono or
two desperate efforts by himself to sustain the
right arm by propping it with his left hand.
Aller he had taken tho oath the Parson stretch?
ed forth his hand for a glass of water, which
shook wildly before it reached his lips. The
ordeal, slight as it seems, Lad completely ex?
THURSDAY MORNING, MARCH ll, 1809.
What Wc May Expect.
Wendell Phillips is an orthodox Radical,
one whose Radicalism is beyond all re?
proach. Upon all the great questions
which have agitated the country during the
past ten years, he has, in the beginniog,
been far in advanoe of the extremest men
nf his party. But hitherto the party have
worked up steadily until they reach d the
plane upon which he stood, making it nec?
essary for him to propound another doc?
trine, more thorough and more bitter than
that which went before. Higher nod still
sigher he has soared, making his latest po?
etical pronunciamiento, in a lecture deliv
?red in Jersey City on Saturday lsst. The
lootrine then published may soon be press
id upon Congress with all the force of
rhetoric and invective, as necessary to the
salvation of the country.
In his lecture Wendell Phillips said that
iie was perfectly satisfied with the state?
ment made by President Grant, in his in?
augural address, that he would carry out
the will of the people. "All hail"-said
ie-"to the chief who will carry out the
'people's will." And what is the will of
he people ? As explained by Mr. Phillips,
t is to fire upon the Southern people with
.annon, to hew them down with the sabre,
o gibbet and burn and destroy. Mr. Phil?
ips says that a Ben Butler is wanted
'large enough to cover thirteen States;"
ind, we presume, with an arm long enough
to reach out and buffet our old men and
Dur women, and a carpet bag big enough
to contain all our precious metals and
jewels of great price.
In.the name of the people, Mr. Phillips
calls upon Grant to play the role of Crom?
well, and make the name of Union man as
terrible to the South as thc Lord Protector
made the name of Englishman terrible to
his enemies. The cannon ''now lying idle
"in Washington" are to be turned upon us.
Scaffolds are to be erected ns high as that
on which Haman hung. And all this by
the obedient Graut, thc mau from whom
some weuk minds have expected magnanim?
ity, independence and sense. All this rav?
aging, and slaving, and polluting, is to be
the work of Grant; for he has pr uised
that he will carry out the will of the peo?
ple, and will "vigorously execute every law
"that Congress puts ia his hands." And.
says Mr. Phillips, "Congress should cover
"the South with ctiunou, bauners und tcaf
"folds, tiil full security of person and prop
"erty ls enjoyed, und till it eau be Faid
"with truth 'we will have peace
We do not fear that the merciful sugges?
tions of Mr. Phillips will bc adopted by the
people of the North, whatever may he their
welcome at th j hands of the ultra Radicals.
Nor do wc fear that this burning and de?
molishing cnn bc accomplished. Wc arc
able to take curv of ourselves, and will take
care of ourselves, even in thc face of the
great guns and big swords which it is now
proposed to usc. All thc Philips who ever
lived, from Philip of Mic-'don down, can?
not daunt us now. We kaow that there is
peace in the South, and that life and prop?
erty are as secure here as iu tho heart of
Mtssachusctts. This, however, we do not
expect to bc believed by the Radie ils, as
long as they can grow rich aud their party
retain power by garbling and denying the
What wc now desire is to impress upon
our people the fact that the most extreme
of the extreme Radicals is satisfied with
Gran', and has implicit faith that he will
blindly obey every decree of Congress; also,
to reiterate our belief that we have no more
to expect from Grant than we should have
had from Wade, Sumner or Stevens.
Gold or Paper.
j The decision of ihe Supreme Court of the
United Statea iu thc case cf Butler against
Horwiiz, a suit for ground rent in Balti?
more, upon a contract made in 1791 for the
annual payment of "English golden guin
"eat>" of a specified weight, is still more
explicit in affirming thc binding force of
special contracts for coin, whether inadc
before or after thc Legal Tender acts were
passed, than the decision given in the case
of Bronson against Rodes two weeks ago.
The opinion in (bis case of Butler against
Horwitz, an extract from which was pub?
lished in THE NEWS of yesterday, was given
by Chief Justice Chase and assented to by
the whole Court except Justice Miller, and
clearly establishes the principle that when
a contract is made for either gold or paper
the courts must enforce it in kind; wh le a
contract for money, not specifying cither,
may be satisfied in any legal lender money,
at the option of the debtor.
Thc Court said :
' This inference as to contracts made prior
to the passage of tho acts makin g United States
notes legal tender is strengthened by the con?
sideration that those acts not only do not pro?
hibit, but by strong implication sanction con?
tracts since their passage for the payment or
delivery of coin; and consequently, taken in
connection with the provision of the act of
1792, concerning money of account, require
the damages upon such contracts to be asses?
sed in coin and judgment rendered accord?
ingly; leaving tho assessment of damages for
breach of other contracts to be made and
judgment rendered in lawful monoy. It would
bo unreasonable to suppose that tho legisla?
ture intended a different rule, as to contracts
prior to the enactment of the currency laws,
from that sanctioned by them in respect to con?
So that the court sustains special con?
tracts for coin made before the passage of
the Legal Tender acts, expressly on the
ground that these acts themselves, properly
construed, make such contracts legal after
their passage, and that Congress cannot
have meant to apply a different rule to con?
tracts previously made.
These decisions remove all difficulties from
the way of those who desire to make con?
tracts which shall not be subject to thc fluc?
tuations of an uncertain currency, and they,
may now act with entire confidence. There
is no legal limitation whatever upon thc
right of the people to use the coined gold
and silver of the United States both as a
circulating medium and as money of ac?
count. This will enable the Southern pub?
lic, if they BO desire, to bring all transac?
tions down to a gold basis, and to resume
practically a specie circulation.
THE WINTER has been mild, and yet the
Pacific Railroad is so blocked up by snow
that the trains cannot run, nnd, according
to the telegrams from San Francisco, "have
not been running from Wasacht to the
western terminus of the Union Pacific
since February 12 " This is a proof that
the Union Pacifio Railroad, however useful
it may be, oannot on account of its position
meet tno -equirements of (rade or give us
open communication by rail with the Paci?
fic for more than nine months of the year.
Every ton of snow which falls upon the
present line is an additional argument
in favor of the Southern Pacific Railroad,
which ought to be built, ?nd will be built if
the South has any influence, even of the
"you tickle me and I'll tickle you" kind,
upon Congressional legislation.
GRANT has blundered : tint, in nomina
nating as Secretary of the Treasury Mr.
Stewart, who was ineligible; second, ia sup?
posing that Congress would instantaneously
repeal a good law because the President
wished il; third, in taking it all back in a
sulk because he could not have his way.
This is a good beginning, surely !
