Applications for Pardon.
The Washington correspondent of
the New York Her?ld, writing under
date of June 19, says:
To day's mails have made a large
addition to the number of applications
"for Executive pardon, nnd particularly
from the States nf Virginia and North
Carolina. Notwithstanding the mis?
representation.} of interested and de?
signing politicians, the mass of the
people from those States accept the
President's policy of reconstruction
cheerfully and unreservedly. Such
persons as T have conversed with from
feoth sections are loud in praise ol the
general features put forth in his pro?
clamations, and assert that as soon as
their neighbors come to understand
what action is necessary to bring them j
again under the. protection of the j
.Federal Government, the movement
and the acquiescence will be almost
unanimous. That some practical dif?
ficulties may be encountered, and some
minor differences of opinion spring up
thereon, admitted by all thinking j
men; but that any serious difficulties
are ?kely to arise, they assert to be
entirely out of the range of proba
bilitv. Tiiey urgre with much appa?
rent fore*, that no_ st ronger evidence of
a desire to return to th e. Unif*n on the
terms off-red by the President could
possibly be given than is daily fur?
nished by those numerous applii-ations
for pardon from the classes of ?nen
excepted by the proclamations. One
of the difficulties to be considered and
overcome grows out of the twenty
t.housan 1 dollar exception. Many
large tnanuf?ct urers, like J-?. Ander?
sou.'of the.Tre ie_rar lion Works, and
Haxall and Crenshnw, of the Rich?
mond Flouring Mill*. v\ ho are person?
ally ?tnd j'Mt.ly obnoxious and nine
nalilti to punishment; are but p irt
owners of their immense e?tabli-df
mHilts, and have loyal and deserving
men for partners. Som? rule sepa
rating such interests is imperatively
dem-inderi, that the manufacturing and
productive interest? of the South may
be put' in m tion, and the tliou-n.nds
of employees and artisans now idle be
enabled to eain their sub-ivtence.
Those who have feared that the Pre
sident's clemency in the matter of par?
dons was likely to le abused may as
well abandon the idea at once. Mr.
Johnson is too clear-headed and far?
seeing to become befogged on a matter
that has had such careful consideration
as this, or to be duped by men with
whose machinations and antecedents
be has been familiar for years. Not
over fifty have thus far been pardoned,
and tbesj are men without national
?reputation or influence, and clearly en
triled to reinstatement.
SAMES OF PROMINENT REBELS APPLY
ING FOR PARDON.
The following list embraces all the
prominent rebels who have applied
for pardon: Alexander ll. Stephens,
R. M. T. Hunter, Postmaster General
Reagan,* W. W. Boyce, of South
Carolina; T. A. Gholson, of Virginia;
William T. Avery, of Tennessee; R
H. Hill, of Georgia; Major-Generals.
J. B. K' rshaw. William Mahone,
George Pickett, and Echo's, and Bi ig
?dier-Generals J. B. Simms, Basil W.
Duke, H. A. Quarles. M. J. Wright,
II. P. Jackson, William ll. POCK,
William C. "Wickham, J. R. Ander?
son, W. N. B. Pratt, W. L. Ca pet t
and R. L. Pago.
This morning John P. Murray, a
pi?nber of the rebel Congres from
Tennessee, presented himself at Col.
Ingraham's vflwe and look the oath of
allegiance. Fourteen questions, appli?
cable io the exc'p'ions enutn'.ri.ted in
th* President's late amnesty procla?
mation, were propounded to Murray
1 before the oath was administered* to
all of which he answered in the nega?
tive, except the iourteentb question,
which is a* follows; 'Have v?u vi>lun
tardy participated in the rebellion? If
so, is the estimated value ?if your pro?
per y ov?r twenty thousand dolinis?'
To this Murray replied that he had
never paid taxes on twenty thousand
dollars, and did not know how much
ho was worth.
Henry C. Burnett, a rebel-Senator
from Kentucky, appeared at Col. In
graham's office this morning for the
purpose of taking the oath of alle?
giance. As he was formerly ? mem?
ber of the United States House of
Representatives he could not answer
favorably the question, 'Did you leave
a seat in the Congress of the United
States to aid the rebellion?' But the
oath was administered, however, in
or 1er to afford him an opportunity to
make a special application under the
amnesty proclamation to President
Johnson to be restored to his rights as
a citizen of the United States.
