Will the President Stand Hi? G roi? ?id 5
This is an important question to
the real Union men of the country
those who are in favor of healing the
wounds which the war inflicted upon
the country, instead of keeping them
open to fester for years. The New
York Times is the only journal to
which we can look for an answer.
That paper bears a semi-official rela?
tion to the Administration, which
gives importance to its utterances;
and these we havo thus far never
failed to find sustained by the Presi?
dent. Anxious to know the probable
course of the President with refer?
ence to the Stevens amendment, we
have consulted the columns . of the
Times, and found the subjoined satis?
factory declaration :
"It is imagined that by bullying,
and threatening, and insulting, Mr.
Stevens can d*.i o President Johnson
from his P "V"~; ,n' ^8 supposed
that a part y may be everlastingly
frightened by the crack of an over
seer's whip, or perpetually misled by
cries devoid of reason, and appeals
which, though full of sound and fury,
signify nothing? If these be the ex?
pectations, we tell those who cherish
them that they are doomed to disap?
pointment. Andrew Johnson stood
firm in the Senate with traitors
around him ; firm in Tennessee, when
firmness? for the Union exposed lum
to trouble an? death, and we are
confident that he will not shrink now,
with the public opinion of the nation
overwhelmingly in his favor.
"As to the Union party, we are not
less snre that its usefulness to the
country and the prolongation of its
power as a party depend upon the
restraints which it shall impose upon
the schemes of the radical section.
Its worst enemies are of its own
household. If these assaults upon
the Constitution and the Executive
are to be continued, the Union will
be in greater danger from the doings
of professed friends than from the
machinations of its most malignant
"The time calls for forbearance,
moderation, magnanimity. The coun?
try stands more in need of practical
legislation than of the 'previous
question' and the prescriptions of
legislative quacks. Shall it be said
that the Union party is unequal to the
exigencies of the situation?"
The Times is not satisfied with
"fending off." It attacks Mr. Ste?
vens boldly. Wo quote a little of its
"To a man who had dared any?
thing or done anything befitting a
hero, we might be disposed to listen
with respect. But that men who
never shouldered a musket, nor e^.- !
posed their precious persons to dan ger,
should now scold and hector, and
talk about terms which a conqueror
may dictate, is simply intolerable.
And when Mr. Stev.-ns, who, during
the war, attempted nothing moro for?
midable than the drafting of absurd
gold bills, spits his venom upon the
President, and impugns the saga?
city and patriotism of Andrew John?
son, the people will not be long in
deciding to whom their confidence
should be given. It is against this
patriot, tried and true-against this
statesman, endowed so eminently with
qualities peculiarly suited to the
crisis-that Mr. Stevens presumptu?
ously and insolently proposes to array
the great Union party."
But satire is not all. The Times
can threaten, too. "Nay, an thou'lt I
mouth, I'll rant as well as thou." |
Would Mr. Stevens behead the Presi- j
dent ? Then, Mr. Stevens shall be
beheaded. We quote again : j
"Mr. Thaddeus Stevens and his
radical friends are not unlikely to
overshoot their mark. Their "fiery
zeal will, ia due time, defeat itself,
and bring upon their own heads the
punishment reith which they threaten
others. For all this agitation in Con?
gress, this piling up of amendments
to the Constitution, this denunciation
of every man who differs from them,
this anxiety to disable and punish our
fellow-citizens in the Southern States,
is in strange forgetfulness of consi?
derations which the statesman who
would live must ever keep in view. It
presupposes the continuaiice during
peace of a public opinion which ac?
quired force under the excitement and
perils of wai-."
And finally, tho Times declares that
the Southern States are to bs consult?
ed. It says-and the italics are its
"But the Senate has yet to act upon
it, and after that, it must receive the
ratification of three-fourths of all the
Stales. Ile must be a very sanguine
man who behaves that this can ever
NATURAL. ALLIES.-It is related of ?
Maximilian that, in a recent conver?
sation, he maintained that President
Johnson ant* he are, by position as
well as by interest, natural allies. "If
he helps me," said the Emperor, "I
will help him, and we will raise this
.continent to such a degree of pros?
perity and greatness that we shall
soon be able to dictate to the rest of
the world, Europe included." A ca?
pital suggestion; Max., backed by
Louis, playing partners with Andy,

I The following proclamation was

Citizen soldiers, again we addres:
I you on the importance of the coming
? struggle. To urge upon you the ne
! cessity of prudence we shall not nov
do, as your past conduct proves yoi
! to be men of prudence and discretion
But we shall urge upon you tho ne
cessity of earnest preparation. Le
all true Irishmen understand eacl
I other. In a country where it is trea
son to have a rifle, it is necessary fo
you to put your weapons in conceal
ment until the day of action. Tha
grand work of liberation will sooi
begin. Soon shall our country hav?
an army of citizen soldiers; soon shal
the sunburst shine upon our hills
Our perfidious enemy, aware of th
power with which she will have t
cope, is making every preparation
She is fortifying her strongholds, bar
ing her prisons, armirfg her loya
subjects-among the rest "Orange
?men." She is sending English am
I Scotch troops to our country. Bu
I her strongholds shall give way; he
prison doors shall be opened; he
! arms and her troops become an ir
strument against herself. She has t
contend against that mightiest c
powers-the outraged but almight
people. The perjured press, in thei
fear, thunder out against us. The}
and all Irish foes, will soon hav
cause to regret the day they -worked
against their country. We call upon
all classes of our countrymen, no
matter what creed they profess, to
0 tami forth and be ready to aid in the
liberation of Ireland. Ours is no
party cause. We embrace Protest?
ants, Catholics, Dissenters and all
who love Ireland. For Leland a re?
public, for Ireland in freedom we
work, a band of patriots, bound to?
gether by all the ties of unity and
patriotism, pledged to ono another in
the sacred cause of liberty. May we
ere long commence that glorious
struggle for tho accomplishment of
which so many have sacrificed their
lives on the scaffold and in the field.
Let all true men hold themselves in
readiness. We advise sobriety, pre?
paration and readiness. Remember
Emmet. Think of your imprisoned
countrymen. By order of tho
God save the people.

Madrid continued tranquil, but
there were rumors of risings in va?

mane course of procedure ill under

system of repression.
OPENING OF THE COURT OF EQUITY.
The Court of Equity, after a long in?
terval of suspense, was again opened
for its regular February term yester?
day, Chancellor Johnston presiding,
and will continue its sessions until
the business is concluded. Chancel?
lor W. D. Johnston is, for tho first
time, in his official character before
the Charleston public, and those but
slightly acquainted with his character
and attainments will feel confident in
the assurance that he is destined to a
distinguished judicial career, and will
give to the matters of interest more
immediately before him tho conside?
ration to be expected from careful
business habits, and a cultivated and
ripe legal judgment.
Many circumstances concur to make
this an occasion of interest. Much
business has accumulated, the dis?
posal of which is necessary to the
settlement of property and rights,
while tho re-opening of our courts is
necessary to the realization of civil
law. We can only feel fully assured
that we aro under the arbitrament of
our own civil tribunals when we shall
find them again in the exercise of
their o?cial functions. Thc amount
of business is not excessive, but it is
important; it is in reference to the
settlement of trusts, the partition of
property, and thc adjustment, of mat?
ters of business which, though in?
volving no very great pecuniary in?
terests, are yet necessary to transac?
tions much affecting the well-being
and order of our people; and, though
there may have been courts, there?
fore, of moro importance in respect
to the interests before them, there
has been no one, perhaps, of such
real importance to the country.
THE EFFECT OF THE STEVENS
AMENDMENT.-The New York World,
in the following article, takes exactly
the ground assumed 'in the Dispatch
of Friday last. We are fearful that
the radicals will devise some method
of depriving us of the right which
the amendment concedes to us of re?
gulating suffrage according? to our
own notions. Wo quote from the
"Nothing could bo easier than for
the States it attempts to control to
render it practically null. Thc whole
energy of the amendment lies in this
provision: 'that whenever tho elective
franchise shall be denied or abridged
in any State, on account of race or
color, all persons of such race or
color shall be excluded from thc basis
of representation.' The Southern
State would only have to declare,
first, that all persons now enjoying
thc elective franchise should continue
to exercise it; and, secondly, that all
persons hereafter admitted to it
should be admitted on a prescribed
educational or property qualification.
These conditions would, in no re?
spect, make the right of suffrage de?
pendent 'on race or color;' for tho
first distinction would discriminate
only between the present possessors
and future candidates, without regard
to race or color; and the second (sup?
posing the qualification to be educa?
tional) would be simply between
those who can read and write and
those who cannot, without reference
to race or color. But it would prac?
tically excludo the great majority of
adult negroes, and a large proportion
of those of therising,generation. Tho
political control would accordingly
remain (for this generation, at least,)
as completely in the white race as if
no snell amendment were passed."

AFFAIRS IN MEXICO.-Cortina left
Brownsville on the 22d ult., to go up'
the Bio Grande. He returned and
crossed over at a point fifteen miles
below Matamoros on tho 2Gth.
Gen. Escobedo, with his entire
force, 250 strong, has left Camargo
for some interior Mexican point.
Gen. Canales, with a small force, has
left Mier for Victoria. He and Gen.
Escobedo are at open variance.
The Ranehero says that Canales and
Escobedo cannot escape to neutral
territory for protection.
An English, a French and a Spanish
man-of-war arc cruising off the mouth
of the Rio Grande, and three Mexi?
can imperial war vesssels are cruising
from off Brazos St. Jago to the mouth
of thc Rio Grande.
A better condition of affairs is now
prevailing at Monterey than for some
time past. .
Business men, who had left there
for*Saltillo, arc returning.
Nearly all the merchants at Mata
moras, Mexican and foreign-among
the former several prominent and in?
fluential liberalists-have published a
solemn protest against the course of
the United States army and civil
officials on the Texas side of the Rio
Grande, charging them with being
responsible for the troubles and out?
rages on the Rio Grande frontier, by
aiding the partizans of Juarez-a
party which, at present, the protest
says, has no more foothold on that
frontier than that afforded by said
officials. Thc protest is very severe
in i^s tone, and its truth is officially
certified to by the Vice-Consuls of
Spain, France, Prussia and Great
Britain resident at Matamoras.
The Fenian excitement is on tho
increase in Canada, impelled by the j
fear that the way to the freedom
of Ireland by the preliminary inva?
sion of Canada is the fixed policy of
the leaders in the movement. The
Canadian Fenians have issued an ad?
dress denouncing the proposition;
but this has neither calmed the pub?
lic mind nor satisfied the authorities.
Unusual agitation prevails through?
out the upper province. The militia
have been again called out, and
troops are being hurried to the fron?
tier to meet an expected invasion by?
way of Sarnia or Windsor. The Se?
dentary militia have been called to
arms, at least a portion of them, for
the whole strength amounts to
150.000 men. This force is only
1 i able to be called into active service
in times of great danger, as in the
rebellion of 1837. Whatever may be
tho necessity for all those prepara
I tionsand precautions, whether found
I ed or unfounded, it is clear that at
the present time the Fenians aro
! creating as great a scare in Canada as
they are in the heart of England
itself. It was rumored yesterday
that President Roberts and General
Sweeny passed through Hamilton,
Canada, by railroad, on Thursday
night.-New York Herold, 2d.
