The End of the Rebellion.
There is a significant paragraph in
the speech of Mr. Seward, Secretary
of State, and that is in relation to the
forthpoming proclamation of Presi?
dent Johnson, announcing that the
war was at an end, and that the
present Freedmen's Bureau bill would
.. cease one year after such proclama?
tion. The Bichmond Whig says that
upon the putting forth of such a pro?
clamation, martial law and military
rule will cease in these States, the
privilege of the writ of habeas corpus
will be restored, and the people will
be remitted to civil tribunals of their
own creation for the ascertainment
and protection of their rights. This,
for the reason that the law of Con?
gress authorizing the suspension of
the privilege of that great writ, con?
fers the power on the President only
"during the existing rebellion."
With the supremacy of civil author?
ity once more, and the privilege of
self-government in all State affairs
again enjoyed by the people of the
South, the action of Thad. Stevens'
Obstruction Committee becomes a
matter of comparatively slight im?
"We have other information, that as j
soon as Texas, in her Convention, j
complies with the conditions of his
restoration policy, he will issue his i
proclamation to the effect above an?
It is stated in our Northern ex?
changes that a desperate effort TO
made in "Washington by means of the
telegraph to create the impression
that the President had made an out?
rageous speech on the 22d. De?
spatches were sent all over the country
to this effect, for the. purpose of pre?
judicing the minds of the party
leaders in advance against it. Three
OT four despatches were sent to Mr.
Seward, stating that the speech of
Mr. Johnson was a frightful one, and
a speech that he could not endorse,
also begging him not to speak at the
Cooper Institute meeting if he could
avoid it, but if he did speak to be
careful how he committed himself to
the President. Similnr despatches
were also sent to Mr. Bay mo nd and
other speakers. The game of the
radicals was a bold one, and shows
the desperation to which they are
driven when they are compelled to
resort to that dodge to bolster them?
These despatches were sent off on
the evening of the 22d ultimo, and
on the next day these mendacious
correspondents of the radical press,
both East and West, were boasting
over the canards they manufactured,
and sent to their respective journals.
But these lying telegrams failed to
accomplish their purpose. Mr. Sew?
ard, to whom three or four of them
were sent, was among the first who
telegraphed to the President his en?
dorsement of the speech in tho fol?
lowing despatch :
NEW YORK, February 23, 1866.-It
is all right and safe. The Union is
restored and the country safe. The
President's speech is triumphant, and
the country will be happy. * * *
[Signed] W. H. SEWABD.
Such a shameful effort on the part
of the radicals; such barefaced effront?
ery, and such bold mendacity, liss
scarcely ever been recorded, even in
the historv of radicalism.
Stevens and Forney.
The Lancaster (Pa.) people, in a
recent election, gave the Democrats a
large majority over the Bepublicans.
The Intelligencer, in noticing the
matter, is very severe on Stevens and
Forney. It says:
"It is, in all respects, ?ie greatest
victory ever achieved by the Demo?
cracy of Lancaster, and will have a
most salutary and beneficial effect
upon the rest of the State. The arch
demagogue, disunionist, and tiaitor,
Thaddeus Stevens, has been signally
and terribly rebuked at his home,
and white men everywhere have good
reason to rejoice over the result."
The editor gives the following sig?
nificant notice: "We have been re?
quested by the treasurer of the fund
to announce to John W. Forney that
he is ready with a detailed statement

graphed to Washington that 100 guns
were fired in St. Louis, recently, in
honor of the President's veto.
Secretary Seward Oit Restoration.
The following is a brief report of
Mr. Seward's speech at the mass
meeting held at the Cooper Institute,
New York. The report, though brief,
contains the most important passage.
After some introductory remarksf
Mr. Seward said :
"What shall I speak of or about!
The call of your meeting specifies
the subject. But first let me say I
am not here as an alarmist. I am
not here to say that the nation is in
peril or in danger; in peril if you
adopt the opinions, or in peril if you
reject them; in peril if you adopt the
views of the apparent or real majority
of Congress, or if you reject them; it
is not in peril any way; nor do I think
the cause of liberty and human free?
dom, the cause cf progress and ame?
lioration or civilization, the cause of
national aggrandizement, present or
future, material or moral, is in danger
of being long arrested, whether you
adopt one set of political opinions or
"The Union, that is to say, the
nation, has been rescued from all its
perils. The noble ship has passed
from tempest and billows into the
verge of a safe harbor, and is now se?
curely riding into her ancient moor?
ings without a broken spar or a leak,
starboard and larboard, fore and aft.
There are some small reefs yet to pass
as she approaches these moorings.
One pilot says she may safely enter
directly through them; the other says
that she must back, and by lowering
sail take time to go around them. It
merely a difference of opinion be?
tween the pilots. I think them both
sincere and honest, but the vessel
will go in safely one way or the other.
"The worst that can happen will be
that by taking the wrong instead of
the right passage, or even taking the
right passage and avoiding the wrong
j one, the vessel may roll a little, and
! some honest, capable and even de?
serving politioal statesmen, President,
or even Congressmen, may get wash?
ed overboard. If this cannot be help?
ed, it can be borue. If I am one ol
the unfortunates, let no friend be
j concerned on that account. As ho
I nest, as good or capable politicians,
! statesmen, or President, will make
I their appearance hereafter faster thar
j will be needed to command the ship,
I as well and a? wisely as any that have
heretofore stalked their hour on deck
Although I do not think we are in ?
crisis, the question to-day is worthy
of deliber? examination and consi
Mr. Seward then went on to specify
the issue between the President ane
Congress, and supported the veto o
i the Freedmen's Bureau bill. He ai
much as announced that a proclama
tion won kl soon como forth, announc
ing the Union restored, when h<
thought the Freedmen's Bureai
should cease its operations. He full;
supported the President's policy,
j Mr. Seward drew a happy illustra
tion from the faree of the "Nervou
Man and Man of Nerve," and re
marked that "this, I think, is th
difference between the President, whi
is a man of nerve, in the Executiv
chair at Washington, and the nervou
men who are in the House of Repre
sentatives. The President is in hai
mony with all the States that were i:
rebellion. Every executive depart
! ment and judicial department are i:
I operation, or are rapidly resumin
j the exercises of their functions. Loy?
I representatives, more or less fror
j these States, men whose loyalty ma
I be tried by any constitutional ?
. legislative test, are now standing ii
: the doors of Congress, and have bee
; standing there for three months pasl
i asking to be admitted to seats whic
i disloyal representatives, in violenc
j of the rights and duties of the States
as well as of the sovereignty of th
Union, had recklessly abandoned,
i These representatives, after a laps
of three months, yet remain outsid
; the chamber, while Congress passe
j law after law, imposing burden afte
? burden, and duty after duty, upo
? the States which, thus, against thei
! earnestly expressed desires, are lei
without representation. So far as
I can judge of human probabilities,
j feel sure that loyal men from the no
loyal States will sooner or later, t
this session, or at some other, by thi
Congress, or some other, be receive
into the legislature of the natioi
When this shall have been done, th
process of restoration will be comple
ed, for that is all that now remains t
I be done.
i The President thinks that the trai:
sition stage has nearly passed, an
the original provision for the freec
men's bureau is all that is necessar
to secure tho end in view; while tb
bill submitted by Congress seems t
him to give it indefinite extension i
time of peace and restoration. H
vetoed it for that reason. He decline
to accept, as unnecessary and uncal
ed for, the 1,000 or 10,000 agent
the increaseel powers, and the auj
mented treasure which Congress ii
sists on placing in his hands. Coi
gre8S, on the other hand, thinks tin
the freedmen's bureau is not adi
quate, and that more patronage, moi
money, and more power, should, lih
Thompson's door-plate, purchased ?
auction by Mrs. Toodles, be a goo
thing to have in a house.
I agree with the President in tli
hope that the extraordinary provisio
which the bill makes will not be ni
cessary, but that the whole questio
may be simplified by simple referenc
. *?i the existing law.
j Mr. Seward concluded as follows:
"It -will be a sad hour for the re
j publie when the refusal of unneces
I sary powers, treasure and patronage
by the President shall be held to be a
crime. When it shall be so consi?
dered, thc time will have arrived for
setting up at the White House an im?
perial throne, and surrounding the
Executive with imperial legions. "
I Mr. Seward was cheered with great
I applause throughout his entire speech.
Coi. James Chesnut, aged ninety
three years, died at his home, in
Kirkwood, near Camden, on the 17th
ultimo. He was tho father of Gen.
James Chesnut, and was highly re?
spected by the people of Camden,
among whom he resided so long. We
clip the following two paragraphs
from an editorial in the Camden
Col. Chesnut was a remarkable man
by nature, while his position and ad?
vantages gave him prominence for
the exhibition of his qualities. Cul?
tivated, refined, courteous in the
extreme, he possessed nn independ?
ence of judgment and strength of
will which enabled him always to
i select his own course and to carry out
his purposes. Frequently honored
by the peopie of his native District
with public office, his duties were
always well and faithfully performed.
His political consistency and integrity
were as pure and unsullied as bis
private character. Blessed with a
robust constitution and active tastes,
his regular mode of life and excellent
habits preserved him in great vigor
to extreme old age; and at ninety he
sat his horse with ease and grace.
As was reasonable from his antece?
dents, having seen the Union estab?
lished; haviug watched its birth and
progress; its early vigor and mature
grandeur; having been thrown in
contact early in life with the great
Washington, and having been deeply
I stamped with love and admiration for
j him, he contimied to be a staunch,
unflinching, devoted friend of the
union of the States; and when at
length in his old age, he mournfully
and sadly acquiesced iu the course
adopted by his native State, he
thought he foresaw the wreck which
he lived to witness.
AN IMPORTANT DECLARATION.-In

THE NEW PARTY.-The. New York
Times says that a meeting of promi?
nent citizens has been held, at which
a committee was appointed to go to
Washington and seek a conference
with President Johnson, as to the
best means of sustaining his Adminis?

to undertake this task, and on their j
return, it is stated, will submit a |

MISSOURI.-Both Houses of the j
Missouri Legislature passed, on the !
22d ultimo, the following resolutions,
under a suspension of the rules:
"Resolved, That the couflict which
has existed for the last five years be?
tween loyalty and disloyalty is still
existing, and that the safety of the
nation demands that the Govern?
ment shall be retained in loyal hands.
"Resolved, That in the thirty Se?
nators who voted to sustain the
Freedmen's Bureau bill, vetoed by
the President, and in the Union ma?
jority of the House of Bepresenta
tives, who supported the same and
kindred measures, we recognize true '
and worthy representatives of the
principles which saved the country j
in the late rebellion, and we tender j
such representatives our hearty sup

The Texas State Convention is still
engaged in making out business, but !
is doing very little. Mr. Jones, of |
Baxter County, offered a proposition
to divide Texas into three States, for
the purpose of effecting a balance of
power in the Union.
The majority of the committee on j
tho subject of changing the State I
Constitution reported favorably, |
while the minority reported that they :
were in favor of changing the Consti- j
tution, only so far as it would tend to :

The bold speech of "The O'Dono
ghue" in Parliament on the subject of
Fenianism, attracts much attention.
The speaker plainly told the English
people that his countrymen did not
like the British rule; that the union
of the two islands was repugnant to
them ; and that Fenianism was merely
a new manifestation of the old hatred
of English domination. The O'Do
noghue's declarations seemed to
astonish Parliament, and were replied
respectfully by Mr. Gladstone.
M. Monthclon, French Minister at
"Washington, had addressed a de?
spatch to his Government on the
Bagdad affair. He bears testimony
to the neutrality of the United States
and expresses himself entirely satis?
fied with the action of General Sheri?
dan, though surprised at the course
taken by General Weitzel in sending
United States troops into the town.
The prevailing ferment continued
in Spain, and tho Government had
authorized the issue of letters of
marque, conditional upon Chile's
adopting this mode of warfare. To a
deputation of Catalan deputies who
waited upon General O'Donuell to
suggest a national subscription for
the purchase of iron-clads, the Span?
ish Prime Minister replied that he
had instructed the Captain-General

cessary in this line in the United
The Fenian conspiracy in Ireland
was rapidly coming to a point. No
fewer than four ammunition factories
had been discovered in Dublin, in
which tho manufacture of hand gre?
nades, Orsini bombs and othei
weapons of warfare had been carried
on on a most extensive scale. Nearly
half the available forces of the British
army were stationed in Ireland. Ir
Parliament notice had been given oi
a question as to the complicity o?
American citizens in the conspiracy.
The following is a brief report ol
the proceedings in Parliament ou the
Fenian movement :
In the House of Commons, on the
8th, the adjourned debate on the ad
dress in response to tho Queen'i
speech was resumed by "The O'Don
oghue," who argued that the discon
tent and disloyalty in Ireland was th?
natural result of mismanagement
and although hopeless as the Fe: '.ai
struggle with England might be, hi
insisted that the conspiracy Avas widi
and deeply seated. He totally dis
eented from the paragraph relating
to Ireland in the Queen's speech
and moved an amendment expressing
it to be the duty of ministers to ex
amine into the cause of Irish dissatis
faction and to remove them.
Mr. Blake seconded the amend
mont, an?" referred to the harsh treat
ment which, he said, the recent poli
tical prisoners were being subject
Mr. Lawson remarked that th i
statement was utterly without found
ation, and opposed the amendment
Several Irish members followed ii
the same strain as ' 'The O'Donoghue,
and one or two members stated tha
the Fenian conspiracy was of Ameri
can origin, and that Mr. Seward wa
really the Head Centre.
Mr. Maguire characterized the Fe
niau movement as hopeless, and th
cause of injury to the country. He
however, thought the Irish peopl
had many serious grievances to con
plain of, and considered that the Go
verument ought to make it their dut
to take the state of things into cou
Mr. Gladstone took exception t
the remarks that the evils which al
flicted Ireland were the results t
legislation, and objected to pledg
Parliament to redrers evils whic
were in some degroe beyond sue
power. He also objected to th
amendment, on the ground that tb
Government had in the address d(
nounced Fenianism, and said the moi
clear and unequivocal their languag
was the better it would be. Some c
the questions brought under the
notice by members were being full
considered, and would be in due tim
brought before Parliament; and th
legislature ought not to give mere]
vague general promises to a pcopi
so sensible of former wrongs.
The amendment was lost by a
overwhelming majority-346 to 2;
Tho address was then agreed to.
In the House of Commons, on tl:
9'h, Mr. Watkins gave notice that c
the lGth he should ask the Chancelh
of tho Exchequer, whether any c
what representation had been mac'
on behalf of her Majesty's Goven
ment to the Government of tl
United States with reference to tl
Fenian organization in America, mo:
especially with regard to the emplo;
ment of American officers and tl
issue of bonds by the so-called Iris
Republic. He should also movo fi

gards the present law as continuing
the existence of the Bureau at least a !
year from this time. Please ascertain I
and report what step have been taken j
in your district by the State and

You have succeeded in allaying strife, !
arranging labor and promoting edu
cation in the midst of great difficul?
ties. Continue with your utmost
efforts to pursue the sume course as to
demontrate to the people of your
district the good intentions of the |
Government, and the complete practi- j
cability of tho system of free labor.

ageut for whom you are responsible, j
Immoralities, corruption, neglected
duty and incapacity are sometimes
complained of against officers and ;
agents of the Bureau. If either of
these charges are -sustained on inves- ?
tigation, the guilty person will be at I
ouce removed, whether he can be
replaced or not. Thanking you
heartily for the energy and fidelity
you have thus far displayed, the Com
missioner is pleased to express an
unwavering confidence in your ability
to cope with any new difficulties that
may arise. I am, very respectfully, |

THUNDER OF THE LONDON TIMES.
As pop-guns firing in the London
Times produce what the world calls
"thunder," we give a few instances of
their stunning effect in the following
?remarks of the correspondence of
that journal from Madrid. Speaking
of the Queen of Spain's family, the
"Thunderer" states that "the royal
children nore living are five in number,
the new born infant completes the
half dozen"-although those "now
living" number but five! In another
place the same astute correspondence
alleges in reference to Her Catholic
Majesty's recent addition to her
family, that "the event had been fore?
seen, and provided for with the
utmost accuracy!" The executive
ability which provided for that
"event"-with such admirable "ac?
curacy"-even to the sizje, we pre?
sume, of the little stranger's shirt-is
not more remarkable than the antici?
patory statesmanship by which "the
event had been foreseen.
