The President's Proclamation.
WASHINGTON, April 3.-Thc President's
proclamation, declaring the insurrection
at an cud. is published to-day. It asserts
that tho Constitution provides for consti?
tuent communities only ns States, ami not
as territories,' dependencies, provinces or
protectorates, and that such constituent
States mnH therefore necessarily be made
equals, and placed upon a like footing as to
political rights, immunities, dignity and
power with thc several States with which
they are united. lt declares standing
annies, military occupation, martial law,
military tribunals, and thc suspension ol'
the writ of habeas corpus, in time of peace,
dangerous to public liberty, incompatible
with individual rights of citizens, contrary
to the genius and spirit of free institutions,
exhaustive of national resources, and
ought not therefore to be sanctioned or al?
lowed, except in casf !.' of actual necessity
for repelling invasion or suppressing in?
surrection; und further, that the people of
the Southern States have given satisfactory
evidence that they aecpiiesce in tho impor?
tance of thc resolution which declares that
each Stat?! ought to remain and constitute
an integral part of the United States.
Nothing further than thc above is said
about tho writ of habr?s corpus, neither
does the proclamation make any allusion
to a general pardon.
Improvements in Letter Malls. !
A few years ago it cost as much
time and trouble to pass a single let?
ter through the mail as it would to
transfer a hundred thousand dollars
worth of property by a merchant or
banker. Jf Miss Susie Higginbot
tor?, of Hardscrabble, received a
brief letter from her Adouis, who had
come to live in the metropolis, a
large amount of blanks, paper,
twine and circumlocution, were ne?
cessary to insure the delivery of the
missive. The letter was first care?
fully inspected by a mailing clerk in
the St. Louis post office, then entered
upon a book showing its origin, date
and destination, then wrapped in a
small blank; which also contained the
same important information tts the
book, then rewrapped in a piece of
brown paper, then tied with a bit. of
twiue, then superscribed "Hard?
scrabble," aud finally deposited in
the mail pouch ; arrived at its desti?
nation, the worthy postmaster took
it through the reverse process of un?
tying, unfolding and re-entering the
"way-bill*' upon another blank book,
and after all this circumlocution, and
waiting a good hour for a mail of a
dozen letters to be opened, way-bills
tiled, ???c., the impatient Susie re?
ceives the expected letter.
All this nonsense about "way-bills"
has been exploded, and the reform in
this matter, inaugurated by Hon.
Montgomery Blair, late Postmaster
General, has already saved the Go?
vernment many millions in ' 'blanks,
fiaper and twine," as well as clerk j
tire, and afforded conveniences to
the public that are altogether incal- \
eulabie. At the same time that this
reform was inaugurated by Mr. Blair,
he urged the adoption of a money
order system by them, by which
money letters should be withdrawn
from the mail and the temptation to
rob it thus be abolished. These and
other kindred reforms have been car
ried?into successful execution by Gov.
Dennison, his successor in the Post
Office Department, and the postal
system of the United States has made
more progress towards perfection in
the last six years than during the
whole of its previous history.
This article was commenced with
tho purpose of making special allu?
sion to an invention of the assistant
postmaster at St. Louis, Marshall
Smith, Esq., which adds greatly to
the facilities for transmitting letter
mails. The invention consists of a
box, instead of a leather pouch, tis a
receptacle for letters, during their
transit from one part of the country
to another. The box is made of wood,
strongly bound with iron, and se?
cured by the usual post office pad?
lock. The box is about two feet long
by ten inches wide, and four or five
inches deep. Within, on the sides of
the box, are iron-toothed guides with
a follower, designed to press the let?
ters into a compact form. The letters
are placed in the. box upon their
edges, with iron labels separat ing the
parcels for different offices, the fol?
lower pushed up, the lid closed and
locked, and the mail is ready to de?
part. With this arrangement, no
wrappers are used for tho parcels de?
signed for different offices, and the
mail can be closed within a few mi?
nutes of the time for its departure
from the office. The same advantage
is obtained in the saving of tima in
the distribution of a mail upon its
arrival. The same mail that used to
require an hour for its distribution is
now in the post office boxes, or in tho
hands of the carriers, within fifteen
minutes alter its arrival.
This invention, combined with thc
disuse of wrappers, has saved to the
Government the services of eight
clerks in the St. Louis Post Office,
besides an incalculable amount in
wrapping paper and twine. But the
great advantage gained is in the sav?
ing of time to a whole community
mailing letters when necessary within
live minutes of the time of departure,
and delivering them within a few
minutes of the arrival of a large ami
Thc Defender of the Constitution.
No man was ever better entitled to
be called the defender of the Consti?
tution than President Johnson. No
one ever stood in such a trying posi?
tion, nor was the Constitution ever
before exposed to such assaults as
now. Few men could have withstood
thc temptation ho has to centralize
the Government, and to wield the
extraordinary powers that an over?
whelming dominant party woidd have
placed in his hands. Had he been
disposed to co-operate with this party
in their unconstitutional measures,
he might have become a perfect auto?
crat. The opposition was insignifi?
cant. Its voice would not have boen
heard. The people were tired of agi?
tation, and had become apathetic.
Under this state of feeling-which
was the natural re-action of years of
political and war excitement-they
forgot, in a measure, that "eternal
vigilance is the price of liberty," and
were disposed to let the authorities at
Washington do what they pleased.
The party which elected Mr. Johnson
was overwhelming in Congress, and
had ho gone with them and used
them as he might have done, he
could have usurped nearly all the re?
served rights of tho Stites and peo?
ple. He could have secured his no?
mination in 1808, and have perpe?
tuated his power. What a prize for
an ambitious man! How few could
resist grasping at it?
But this patriot President, and
truly great man could not be tempt?
ed. Through a quarter of a century
of public life, Andrew Johnson had
stood immovably by the Constitution.
He was always regarded, through this
long period, as n watchful and faith?
ful sentinel over that sacred instru?
ment and the Treasury of the United
States, and now, in thc plenitude ol
his power, he will not abandon thc
ground he has always stood upon.
The oath of ofiiee which the Presi?
dent of thc United States takes is re
markable, and diff?rent from that
which is taken by other office-holders.
In article two, section one, of thc
Constitution, it reads as follows: " 1
do solemnly swear that I will, to th?
best of my ability, preserve, protect
and defend the Constitution of thc
United States." Other office-holder!
tike an oath to support the Consti
tution, but the President to preserve
protect and defend it. This is hit
solemn duty. Everybody knows tba
each word of the Constitution wa
well weighed by the framers, am
that there is a profound meaning ii
every one. What is meant by tait
emphatic language of presei-viug
protecting and defending the Consti
tution V Who eau assault the Cou
stitution or undermine it but th
! other branches of the Government
and chiefly Congress ? Here we fiu<
j the motive and reason for investinj
the President with the veto powei
He can defend the country agaiue
foreign enemies or invaders by th
army and navy. He can protect am
preserve it by the same means fror,
insurrection or resistance to the law>
But to preserve, protect and defen
the Constitution is another thing
The enemies in this case would b
factions political parties and organize
tions, a corrupt judiciary, a nsurpin
Congress, or some other evil bodif
or persons among ourselves. He i
sworn to be the preserver, protectc
and defender of the Coustitutio
against any of these.
Who can say, then, that he is nc
justified in vetoing the monstron
unconstitutional Acts of the preset
Congress? Ile would violate his oat
.if he did not His vetoes come wit
much force and have much moi
reason in them, too, when we coi
sider that the present Congress dot
not represent the whole country
That body forcibly excludes Statt
in the Union from representatioi
and, at the same time, passes lav
for those that are not repr?sent?e
Suppose two-fifths of the States wer
by some chance, only represented i
Congress; that, in times of troubl
the members from the.se should sn
ceed in getting possession of ti
Capitol and perfecting their organ
zation, and that they should take
into their heads to exclude the otb
three-fifths, what would be the coi
sequence? Would not that, be in

revolutionary? Who, then, uml
such a shite of things, should pr
serve, protect and defend the ('oust
tution against these usurpers but tl
President? The principle is ll
same whether two-fifths, having s
cured tho Capitol and thc organiz
tion of Congress, should exclude tl
other three-fifths, or the majority

Letter from Beverly Tucker.
The following is a letter from Be?
verly Tucker, which has been sent to
the editor of the Cosmopolitan:
PARIS, March 12, 1866.-I have
just read your ablo and eloquent
leader upon President Johnson's in?
terposition of the constitutional veto
to the "Freedmen's Bureau bill" be?
coming a law. You are right. The
principles and spirit of this masterly
Executive message commend them?
selves to the endorsement of every
patriot within, and every rational
man without, the country. Private
grievances, even though they have
culminated in onerous and unjust
exile, should be forgotten in admira?
tion for the stupendous achievement
that has crushed out, as it were, at
one blow, the purposes of a wicked
party, seeking politically to oppress,
and personally to degrade, the white
people of eleven sovereign States!
The cud of bitter disappointment
must be chewed by those who were
the authors of the awful warfare of
sections that has deluged a land with
blood, and made the graves of a
moiety of a vast empire, "heave but
as some passing waves." They have
sowed the whirlwind and they must
reap the storm!
i It is no less a Christian duty to
forgive, than a patriotic eflbrt, at
least, to forget individual wrongs,
when opposed in the scale by the re?
storation of the personal rights and
political status of 8,000,000 of white
people; and this official act of Presi?
dent Johnson must be accepted as a
happy harbinger of that better spirit
which is, we hope, to inspire the
future councils of the present Go?
vernment at Washington.
Thus much I deem it a grateful
privilege to say, and I beg to join
you in the anticipation of the good
that must flow from this resolute and .
timely check to the destructive spirit j
of radicalism, which, unresisted,
would ere long have sapped the very
sources of human liberty in that dis?
For myself, albeit I must seek a
home in some foreign land, and must
yet live, perhaps forever, without the
protecting segis of that grand old
Commonwealth 1 love so well, I shall
ever, as as a Virginian, look with
filial and affectionate interest to all
that touches the future honor and
happiness of her noble people, aud
shall cherish in my heart, in all its
fullest force, the beautiful and solac?
ing truth, "Ccdum nun anim um
mutant qui trana mare cur runt.
^THE FREEDMEN.-The Evening Post,
speaking of the freedmen, says:
"We do not insist that they shall be
taught at the expense of any Southern
i State, but we do insist that they shall
j be permitted to have schools; we do
i not insist that they shall vote, but
I the loyal part of the nation is fully
I determined that they shall be pro
I tected in their persons and property ;
that they shall have the right not
only to earn, but to recover their
wages; that they shall be made safe
against wrong and outrage of every
kind; that they shall have the right
of free speech, of peaceable assem?
bling together, of petition."
Does the Evening Post believe that
thei*e is a single Southern State the
people of which are disposed to deny
to the freedmen any of the rights and
privileges which the Post, in the
paragraph we have cited, insists that
they shall enjoy?
We claim to be pretty accurately
informed as to the sentiments and
opinions of the Southern people, and
we are perfectly sure that nineteen
twentieths of them all are willing that
the negroes shall have schools; that
they shall be protected in their per?
sons and property; that they shall
have not only the right to earn, but
to recover their wages; that they
shall be made safe against wrong and
outrage of every kind; and that they
shall have freedom of speech and the
right of petition.
The people of the South are willing
to concede and secure to the negroes
the enjoyment of all these rights and
privileges, and the Post knows, or
ought to know it. But those with
whom tho Post generally acts aro not
content with that. They insist not
only these rights shall be conferred
upon tho blacks, but that they shall
be taken away from the whites. Their
plan is to enfranchise the blacks and
disfranchise the whites, so that the
negroes may become the dominant
race in all of the Southern States.

Prospect? of thc At laut io Cable Ex.
Somo interesting statements were
made before a numerous and influen?
tial meeting held, on the 14th ultimo,
in the Common Hall, Liverpool, by
Mi*. Cyrus W. Field, Mr. Canning,
engineer, and Mr. Varley, electrician
to the Atlantic Telegraph Company,
and Captain Anderson, of the Great
Eastern. Mr. Field first explained
that it had been positively necessary
to form tin; new company, (the Anglo
American,) as the Attorney-General
of England had decided against the
legality ol' the issue hythe Atlantic
Telegraph Company of twelve per
cent, preference stock. The new
company would supply all the money
for the expedition of laying tho new
cable this summer, and, when com?
pleted, it would be delivered to the
Atlantic Company, the agreement
being that the Anglo-American should
receive a certain amount per annum
of future earnings, and hand over the
balance to the original company. This
was a fair and just arrangement, and
the Atlantic shareholders would have
certain preferential rights in the pur?
chase of Anglo-American stock.
Mr. Canning said that should any
"faults" occur in the laying opera?
tion they would, by improved ma?
chinery, be able io repair them at a
minute's notice. Capt. Anderson,
who was heartily cheered, expressed
his fullest confidence as to the success
of the future operations. Mr. Varley
was equally confident. The experi?
ments of Professor Thompson, of
Glasgow, showed that during the
operation of laying, the cable was
nearly three hours in falling to the
bottom of the sea, and that after al?
lowing for the greater slowness at?
tending the operation of picking up,
the amount of strain to which the
cable would be exposed would be in?
creased only by two cwt. above its
own weight. The new cable which it
was proposed to adopt (a sample was
shown) would lift above eight tuns,
and would bear a great, deal more
twisting and handling than the old
cable. It was intended to have thc
picking-np machinery in future at
the stern and not atibe bow. [Hear,
Mr. Willoughby ?Smith had invent?
ed a most delicate and perfect instru?
ment for test int-; the insulation dur?
ing the whole process of laying,
splicing, etc. Mr. Varley did nol
think that a revenue of ".Cl,OOO,(MX
sterling per annum would be at ali
an unreasonable anticipation, particu?
larly as the Persian Gulf cable, with
all its imperfections of management
and its delays, yielded ?95, OOO a yeal*.
The instruments to be used in con
nection with the Atlantic cable would
work eight times as rapidly as those
employed on the Persian Gulf cable.
Mr. Field further explained that tht
Anglo-American Company had of ne
cessity been so rapidly formed thal
at present the directors were Londoi
men, but that it was intended to unit?
the interests of Liverpool, Manches
ter, Glasgow, and other large eitie;
on the board. The scheme was cos
mopolitan, and the company wonk
receive messages from all other tele
graph companies and transmit then
in the order of reception.
With regard to capital, he statei
that of the ?600,000 required, ?400,

London, and that it was intended tx
close the lists' foi Loudon on Mon
day, and fOv the country on Tuesday
Eight gentlemen connected with tin
Telegraph Construction and Mainte
nance Company had, at one sitting
subscribed ?10,000 each. Mr. Val?
ley illustrated, by experiments, th
"splicing" process, and snbsequen
insulation by gutta percha. He als?
stated (in reply to questions) that tb
electric condition of the submerge?
cable was perfect, ami that the insu
lation, owing to the depth and th'
cold, was much greater than near th
surface. Mr. Canning and Captaii
Anderson expressed a confident belie
that the old cable would be recovered
If the Great Eastern could pick n]
the "bight" it would be spliced, an<
the operations of laying both cable
would go on simultaneously. If not
one of the smaller vessels would b
detached to pick up. Mr. Rawlin
called attention to the fact that thre
or four miles of the last cable ha<
actually been recovered. Votes o
thanks to the gentlemen who ha<
made the explanations were adopted
