The Freedmen's Bureau bill was

The report that Seward, Mcculloch

The recent attacks upon the Govern?
ment and the officers of the United
States army stationed in Richmond
are supposed to be the reasons which
compelled Gen. Terry to issue the
order. Public opinion is said to sus?
tain the military authorities in their
action in the matter. Gen. Terry has
the key to the office, and unless his
action is countermanded by the Go?
vernment, the paper will not again
appear under the old regime.
The fact has already been stated
that Mona. Montholon was not pre?
sent at tho oration of Mr. Bancroft.
The reason of this is said, to-day, tc
have been because of a foreknow?
ledge, on his part, that Mr. Bancroft
intended to depart from the real sub?
ject he was called upon to eulogize,
and "pitch into" the conduct of for
eign governments generally. As the
French Minister was unable to se(
what this had to do with an eulogj
upon Mr. Lincoln, he concluded t(
remain at his department, where hi
was during the delivery.

If the radicals are to have full sway
in Congress for the next four year?,
the Constitution will have become
like Dean Swift's stocking, "so darn?
ed that none of the original yarn will
be left." But it is not alone in
amendments that the destructives are
seeking the overthrow of this once
venerated instrument. They are
rushing through Congress, with in?
decent haste, legislative measures,
which, if they become laws, indirectly
will have the effect to make the Con?
stitution itself a dead letter. Chief
among these measures is the Freed?
men's Bureau bill, that was passed
through tho Senate last week with
such hot haste, and in defiance of the
solemn agreement made, that the bill
should come up the next morning for
reconsideration, sent down to the
other House for its action. Aside
from the enormous expense that this
bill contemplates, in supporting
minions of worthless, lazy negroes, it
was a cruel wrong to the States not
represented in Congress, and within
whose limits it is to operate. Tho
motive is now clear to the mind of
any reflecting man, why the radicals
have been so persistent in shutting
out the represen'-atives of tho late re?
bellious States from the floor of Con?
gress-it was to afford an opportunity
to mature this and kindred schemes
of wrong and outrage, and incorpo?
rate them into legislative acts. This
Freedmen's Burean bill, in all its de?
tails, is worthy of its author. It in?
vests an institution unknown to the
Constitution with high judicial pow?
ers-authorizing tho President to
assign army officers to the exercise of
those judicial powers. It breaks
down the middle wall of partition
between the powers of the General
Government, and blends and concen?
trates in the same hands exeentivo
and judicial powers, besides depriving
the citizen of his right of trial by
jury. It was most properly charac?
terized by Senator Davis, of Ken?
tucky, when he moved to amend the
title by substituting the following:
"A bill to appropriate a portion of
the public lands in some of the
Southern States, and to authorize
the United States Government to
purchase lands to supply farms, and
build houses upon them, for tho freed
negroes; to promote strife and con?
flict between the white and black
races, and to invest the Freedmen's
Bureau with unconstitutional powers
to aid and assist the blacks, and to
introduce military power to prevent
the commissioners and other officers
of said bureau from being restrained
or held responsible in civil courts for
these illegal acts in rendering such
aid and assistance to tho blacks, and
for other purposes."
There must come a time when the
healthy reaction in the popular mind
must hurt these disorganizers and
disunionists from power; and per?
haps just such bills as this and the
negro suffrage bill, will hasten its
coming. When that time arrives, it
will become tho duty of the repre?
sentatives of the people and tho
States, in a united republic, to ex?
punge from the statute book these
acts of radical legislation. Lot the
young men of this generation, there?
fore, look at and study thea closely,
that they may be all the better fitted
to perform this wholesome work of
reform understandingly and well.
Usurping legislation, commercial
robberies, the monopolies of wealth,
the Corinthian manners, engendered
by our late civil strife, will yet all
work ont Heaven's just retribution;
and when it comes, the oppressed
people of this country will look up
and see the hand-writing of the
fingers on the walls of tyranny, und
hear the footsteps of the avenger.

This horse was raised in Southern Rus?

the strongest and mont inviolable attach?
ment to their unexcelled horses. They
mako their favorite coursera their special
companions, and tram them to be very
fleet and intelligent. The Circassian, dur?
ing one of his wandering tours, became
very needy, and aeon found cager pro
f>osers for the purchase of his splendid
ior.se. At last he consented to part with
him. He was brought before tho pur?
chaser, and there ensued a scene that has
been used as a subject <>f a poet's pen. At
a signal from him, the horse,
"With flowing tail and Hying inane,
With nostrils never stretched by pain,
Mouth bloodless to the bit or rein.
And feet that iron never shod,
And flanks unscarred bv spur or rod,
The bounding horse -tho wild -tho free
Like a wave that dishes on tho sea.
Came proudly thundering on."
There stood the noble horse, tho admi?
