The Hf'quired Guarantees.
The Tribune and other Republican
papers, on behalf of their party, de?
mand that new and satisfactory gua?
rantees shall be obtained from the
Southern States before they are ad?
mitted to equal rights within the
Union. In a recent article on this
subject, it says "that the States
lately in revolt are to be restored to
all their forfeited rights and privile?
ges is undoubted; but what safe?
guards shall be provided against
future rebellions ? This is the ques?
tion that puzzles the party in power,
and in the effort to answer it satis?
factorily to themselves they are put
to their wits end. They are prolific
in suggestions, and pile safeguard
upon safeguard, guarantee upon gua?
rantee until they themselves might
well be confused and bewildered with
their demands. The imperious aud
dictatorial manner in which those
organs of a faction speak to eight
millions of American citizens re?
quires no small amount of toleration
to endure. Here is a paper that re?
fused to be bound by the guarantees
of the Constitution, and which allied
itseli to a faction that denounced the
Union as a league with death and a
covenant with hell, calling for gua?
rantees from a people whose towns
have been burned to the ground,
whose dwellings are heaps of smaul
dering ruins, whose plantations are
laid waste, whose labor system is ut?
terly destroyed ! Guarantees de?
manded by a journal which scoffod
at the most solemn of obligations,
and which insisted that there was a
higher^w than that of the Constitu?
tion ! \Ve were told that the late
conflict was a war for the Union, and
and we had supposed that no other
security would be required but its
restoration; but now that it has been
restored there is to be no end to the
If the Southern people had been
guilty of any crime against Constitu?
tional freedom, if they had struck
down freedom of the press, liberty of
speech, habeas corpus, in a word, civil
and religious rights, we would be jus?
tified in adopting such a course, but
tr^ie to the gre:?? charter
of freedom as when their fathers, the
men of '76, fought for self-govern?
ment and independence against the
mother oountry. They remained in
the Union until they were assured
that there was a rapidly increasing
party in the North inimical to Jieir
rights, until they saw that the securi?
ties which they had obtained for their
protection and the protection of their
property were assailed by this domi?
nant party, and until every overture
for a compromise was indignantly
spurned. In our estimation they re?
mained in the Union longer than they
were bound by the terms of the com?
pact, for that compact was nullified
by the passage of the Personal Lib?
erty Bills in nine of the Northern
Legislatures. Had they made the
issue at that time, the Confederate
States might to-day bo a recognized
republic-a new member in the family
of nations. But it was fated other?
wise. A Union which represented at
one time the free will of all its mem?
bers, has given place to a Union pin?
ned together by bayonets, and "the
just powers," which we were told de?
pended upon "the consent of the
governed,''--have been superseded
by the despotism of a party. Having,
s^wp^Said, scoffed at the most sol
of obligations, this party now
against "future rebellions." Why,
what stuff is this? Is the South to
have no safeguards, that its rights of
property in peace as well as in war
for we believe belligerents lui ve rights
of property-shall not be violated
or interferred with? What security
has it that this dominant minority, if
they should take it into their heads
to strike at other rights of tho South
will not repeat the outrages which
brought on the war ? Wliat guaran?
tee will it have that the Puritan ideas
of right and wrong will not be forced
upon its people ? Safeguards ! Have
the defeated no rights? Is the restora?
tion of the Uuion to bring with it no
tsaeurities, no safeguards for them ?
As the New York Metropolitan Re?
cord justly observes there is only one
way by which this controversy can be
ended, ??.nd that,is by establishing
??Jae Constitution in its entirety, with
ill its guarantees and safeguards. No
other can be justly required. As for j
the perpetuity of the Union, that j
must depend altogether on the future; j
and we are of opinion, that before j
many years shall elapse, the New j
England States will be very glad if
they are permitted to secede peace- '
fully. Guarantees piled as high as
Olympus will not save her against
free trade and the overthrow of a
one-sided, partial legislation, for the
maintenance of which the great ma?
jority of the people are unjustly and
heavily taxed. A combination of the
West and South for the protection of
their agricultural interests would
materially lessen the value of the
Union in har eyes, and we should
hear something more of State Rights
and State Sovereignty from that
quarter than wo have heard since the
Hartford Convention, and the,time
when the Yankee States protested
against tho transit over their soil of
an American army against their here?
Politic? and Religion.
The "war clergy" of Philadelphia
and J. W. Forney, of the Press, are
at loggerheads. The spectacle of the
radical A?tecii of the Press and the
Chronicle being torn and mangled by
his own peculiar "blood hounds of
Zion," is most refreshing to all honest
men. Maj' the contest be long, bloody
and exhaustive! Forney advertised,
a short time since, a Sunday edition
of thc Press, and by printing politics
on the holy Sabbath, impudently
poached and knowingly trespassed
upon the domains of the political and
war clergy of Philadelphia. They
were willing to allow Forney six. days
out of seven within which to turn
political summersaults, but having
dedicated the Sabbath to the preach?
ing of political sermons, and to the
advocacy of li nging and confiscation,
they claimed a monopoly of that day
for their own exhibitions. That was
their favorite and selected day for
hunting "rebels" and denouncing the
ungodliness of treason, and they
therefore greeted the Sunday Press
with a howl of sanctimonious jealousy
and hypocritical piety. Forney, how?
ever* persists in running his opposi?
tion line, despite the angry protest?
of clerical stump speakers, and the
din of their combat waxes louder and
louder, and more and more hideous.
If the contest lietween these hawks
and vultures could end in the exter?
mination of all the parties toit; if the
fate of the belligerent cats of Kilkenny
was to eventually wipe out Forney
and the "blood hounds of Zion,"
there would be great cause for return?
ing thanks to a wise Providence.
But as no such good fortune is
probably in store for chis unhappy
nation, we feel constrained to take
sides with Forney. It does not be?
come men who have again and again
desecrated the Sabbath, by preaching
the most violent, barbarous and inhu?
man doctrines, to object to the pub?
lication of a political newspaper on
Sunday. Do they not, Sabbath after
Sabbath, puliusii from their pulpits
the mosif danger ons aud radical politi?
cal heresies? Consecrated, ordained
and set apart to preach mercy, for?
giveness, good will, tolerance and
brotherly love, do they not advocate
the infliction on the Southern people
of punishment virtually as terrible as
those which the Holy Inquisition
once visited upon heretics? Sabbath
after Sabbath, many of the men who
are now denouncing Forney for pub?
lishing a Sunday paper, have for years
deliberately inflamed the passions and
prejudices of their flocks against their
brethren of the South on that very
TUe New Tori* Daily News.
This admirable paper in its greet?
ing to the public for eighteen hundred
and sixty-six, bases its claim for
general patronage on thc ground that
it has, through years of strife, ever
been a fearless advocate of the sanc?
tity of the Constitution. We not
only endorse the justice of thc claim,
but is gives us pleasure to add, that,
in uo journal published in the North?
ern States have we ever Lad the
earnest, honest, consistent friend
that the New York Daily Neus has
ever been, and is now, to the South.

Tile President Attacked by a, Radical
The following utterances of a fa?
natical radical give assurance that the
President not only means to stand by
his policy, but by Ids friends. All
others must get out of office :
We recently published tho state?
ment that the President had given
directions to the heads of depart?
ments to make no more appointments
at present on the recommendation of
members of Congress. It is well un?
derstood that this order originates in
the opposition of Congress to the
President's reconstruction policy.
The question arises, therefore, whe
\ ther the President is prepared to use
I the Executive patronage as a means
! of persuading Congress into aban?
doning what they deem to bc their
duty, and submitting to his dictation.
Such a course would introduce into
the President's policy the combined
' elements of treachery for his parly,
j bribery for its representatives, and
j contempt for its principles and power,
j Tiie policy uf regarding the Federal
? patronage as the spoils of the party
: is but another mode of expressing
: the political axiom that the same ma?
jority which elects the President
; should exercise and control tue offices
[ to which he has the appointing power,
j so that for the lower, as well as the
? higher departments of Government,
the same majority shall rule. But in
no party, and under no Government,
j has the doctrine been accepted that
; when the Executive elected by ?1 popu?
lar majority is so unfortunate ?is to
place himself in opposition to them,
he may use the whole patronage of
the Government, which, of right, be?
longs to them, to coerce the majority
into the views of the minority. In
principle, we see very little difference
between thc lobbyist who waits in the
ante-chamber with presents of rail?
road stocks, mining shares, or green
I backs, as compensation for a vote in
Congress, and the President who
withholds or distributes offices to a
Congressman's friends for the same
consideration. The most insidious
advances toward such a policy should
be spurned by Congress in thc; most
emphatic manner. The people will
sustain them in refusing the Execu?
tive bribe. Ii' the President's policy,
either as to the time when, or the
terms upon which, the States should
be admitted, or the portion of their
i people te whom the suffrage should
bc extended, be reasonable, safe or
wise, the fact can bc impressed upon
the minds- of an intelligent and pa?
triotic Congress by more worthy and
respectable arguments than the coer?
cive withholding or the corrupt grant?
ing of Federal patronage, based on a
log-rolling and essentially criminal
agreement as to the mode in which
the representatives of the people
shall vote.-Chicago Tribune, 30/7/ ult.
j But the point that tho J?vc5ltleiit
i makes is, that he tv,?7, in any other
? mode, impress his views upon the
I minds of Congress. They don't up
! precinte any other kind of argument.
BEN sim" BEATEN AGAIN.-It hav?
ing been announced some day-1 .siiice
that Edwin Booth was to appear at
Winter Garden Theatre, the New
j York Herald, whose quarrel with the
I theatrical managers has proved in
; jurious to itself in every respect, took
j occasion to denounce the managers
i as guilty of a grestt blunder, not to
' say crime, in engaging the brother of
an assassin, and to predict that New
York would show them that she would
not countenance such disrespect to
the late President. Bead the result :
"This favorite tragedian, after an
absence of over nine months from the
j stage, re-appeared last evening at the
j Winter Garden, before one of the
most brilliant and distinguished
audiences ever assembled within the
walls of a theatre in this city, and the
ovation lie received was such as has
I never beeu accorded to any actor in
I "This may bc justly regarded as
I the brightest triumph of Iiis career,
i and will give him every assurance that
i a generous public is determined to
sustain him against the dastardly
attack of the Herold and ks attempt
to destroy his reputation and profes?
sional prospects. His triumph is
that journal's proper rebuke, and
must satisfy the public that all its
efforts to do injury hereafter will
prove as futile as iu this instance."

A DEFUNCT BANKER ON BANKING.
The following examination of a de- .
funct banker in Cincinnati shows to
what extent the banking business can
! be carried on on "borrowed capital,"
or, in other words, on the deposits of
those who take no pains to ascertain
the stability of a concern with which
they trust their funds. The banked,
in the course of his examination,
"I have been in thc banking busi?
ness since December. 1851; I first
entered the business with between ten
and twenty thousand dollars 'bor?
rowed capital;' I had no money of
my own invested in the business; the
'borrowed capital1 was in the nature
of deposits by several parties; I do
not know what amount of capital I
had invested in the business in 1860,
j or from that time to 1865; I do not
know whether my assets were greater
than my liabilities at any time be?
tween 1860 and 1865; I never balanced
my own books; the book-keeper did
it; I never examined my own books
except in a general way; I never asked
for a statement from my book-keeper
of the condition of my business; I
learned the condition of my affairs in
September, 1865, by the excessive
losses I had made in the purchase of
gold and stocks; the amount of my
losses i u myg' *" "id stock opera?
tions was between three and four
hundred thousand dollars; in my
operations, I used the money of
others as well as my own : I do not
know how much of my own money I
used in these operations."
SOMETHING ABOUT STAMPS.-The
contract for furnishing the stamps
was given 1861 to thc National Bank
Note Company, which now annually
supplies 220,000,000 more stamps
than in the first year of the contract.
Duriug 18G5, so far, the Company has
furnished Government 400,000,000
stamps, ?.nd the demand has fre?
quently exceeded a million and-a-half
per diem. The following will be read
with interest :
The largest number ever delivered
in one day being 5,923,895. The
consumption of stamps of different
values may be understood from a
statement of the proportions manu?
factured in the month of March last,
when there were delivered to Go?
vernment of : 1 cent skimps, 175,200;
2 cent stamps, 11,477,250; 3 cent
stamps, 85,933,550; 5 cent stamps,
275,340; 10 cent stamps. 10,100,640;
12 cent stamps, 322,900 ; 24 cent
stamps, 4S0.300; 30 cent stamps, 140,
650; 90 cent stamps, 19,490. Total,
I The value represented by these
i stamps is $3,207,199.50. The same
writer says that the entire number
supplied by the National Bank Note
Company up to the present time is
one billion three hundred millions.
To meet a demand so vast, the presses
are sometimes run night and day,
and to avoid error in accounts, a
daily balance of the busness is struck.
In furnishing this immense number,
representative of a value of $10,000,
000, not a single lo?s involving
censure to the Company has occurred,
and the stamps ure printed, per
forated, gummed and packed
