Tuesday Morning, April 10, 1866.
Let 17? Stand by Our Friends.
We believe with some of our ox
changes, that beyond the wild im?
pulses of fanaticism, the gratification
and the desire of making political
capital, by conferring political power
on tho freedmen, they have still an?
other object, and that is, so to disheart
. en and disgust the influential classes at
the South, that they will be driven to
self-expatriation to escape the taunts,
sneers and persecutions of the radical
As we have frequently said in this
journal, that following the example
of .Lee, Hampton, Beauregard, and
other of their leaders in the late war,
the post of honor and duty for all
true Southerners, is to stand by their
country and devote their energies,
their time and their earnest labor to
the rebuilding of their shattered for?
tunes, and bringing bnok their sec?
tion, -which has been so sorely devas?
tated by war, to its former greatness
at?d prosperity. If this be the case,
does it not become a further duty to
our section nud country, tr, ?rive our
hearty co-operation to those who are
now engaged in the work of restoring
peace and harmony between all sec?
tions of the country.
President Johnson is the leader in
this great work. His policy adopted
after mature deliberation, is that of a
patriot and statesman. In adopting
it, and carrying it out with so much
firmness, he has made an irreparable
breach between him and the destruc?
tive faction which is now dominant j
in the national legislature. His
vetoes of the Freedmen's Bureau bill
?and the civil rights bill; his memora?
ble speech on the 22d February, and,
lastly, his proclamation restoring the
Southern States to their former stajferis
in the Union, have broughtXupon
him-a fierce and factious wiir, unpar?
alleled in the histpry.-?f party poli
, tics in this orj?pybther country.
HisJ^TState paper, restoring the
of the South to their political
rights and remanding them to thu
protection of civil law, summons
these to his aid in the fierce warfare
now. teing waged against him. So
long as we were in a state of political:
probation, we thought it would be
inappropriate for the people of those
States to take any part in national
politics; but now that ho hos done all
that a President can do to restore
these heretofore excluded States to
their rightful position in tho Union,
ho has removed the last obstacle to
such co-operation as the peculiar con?
dition of af?air.s at Washington do
ruands. Already, as will be seen from
a paragraph elsewhere in to-day's
issue* a new "National Johnson Club"
has been organized, tho vice-Presi?
dent of which for this F?tate is Gov.
James L. Orr, and it is to he hoped
thnfc nn fxteusive organization of this
kind throughout, every State in thc
Union will bring to the side of the
President and to the cause of restora?
tion and peace all true and loyal men,
with.mt distinction of party or party
As has been well said by a cotem
porary, "tho contest is between one
branch of the Government, (tho Exe?
cutive,) lighting to maintain the
whole Government and each und all
of its branches in their constitutional
status; and another branch, (the legis?
lative,) fighting to obliterate all dis?
tinctions between the several branches
and consolidate them into one." Tho
contest will bo a stubborn one, for
the radicals are stubborn and unscru?
pulous, but we trust tin* "defender of
the Constitution" will bo victorious.
In such a content, we think it ia
the duty of the people of tho South
to rally to thc support of tho Consti?
tution. In by-gone days, they were
its finn adherents, and at this timo of
its danger every sentiment of honor
and du'y should draw them to its
support, and every sentiment of gra?
titude to tho aid of tho man who is
battling for it and for their rights
Reliable information has boon re?
ceived lately from Richmond, to the
effect that a movement is on foot to
obtain ft writ of habeas corpus for tho
relief of Jefferson Davis. The writ
in question may issue either from the
United States District Court, Judge
Underwood presiding from a State
Court. It is not li,1 > a(man of

Military -vs. Civil Courts.
Tho Supreme Court of the United
States has just rendered t. decision of
great importance affecting the admi?
nistration of the law in future. It is
especially important to the people of
the South where "military commis?
sions" are still in existence. The case |
decided on is this :
A military commission some time
ago tried certain parties in Indiana
for conspiracy, who were convicted
and sentenced to death. Tito Presi?
dent, however, interf red, and com?
muted the sentence to imprisonment j
for life, and they h ive been since that
time confined in the Ohio Peniten?
tiary. Their case having failed of i
remedy before the courts below, was
brought up on appeal to the Supreme
Court. Tliat august tribunal has de?
cided substantially that the inferior
courts failed of their duty in denying
the petitioners (the men confined in
the penitentiary) tho right of the writ
of habeas corpus, lt has furthermore j
declared that th?* prisoners still in
custody shall be discharged, and that
the commission acted without juris?
This we regard as a very important
decision, affecting, as it does, the
civil rights of every citizen of the
The Court has adjourned without j
declaring on the constitutionality of j
the so-called test oath.
Under the head of "A Grievous
Wrong," the Nashville Union and
J American speaks of the almost uni
I formby evidence of erroneous copies
of official documents sent by tele?
graph. It says such was the case
with the proclamation, received Jfday
or two ago. It says thftt it lias re?
ceived a revised copy hy mail, and
.'*?>Ve will simply remark that the
proclamation includes Virginia, North
I Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia,
Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Ar?
kansas, Florida, Tennessee and Texas.
The proclamation of Juno 13th, 1865,
had already relieved Tennessee in
part, as previous proclamations had
relieved Maryland and Missouri en?
tirely. This completes the work."
As the first telegraphic report left
out South Carolina as well as Texas,
the latter State may als*, have been
left out in the second report of the
document sent by telegraph to the
New York papers, from which all tho
Southern papers copied it.
Tho same journal, in auother arti- J
cle, says that all doubt as to tho
meaning and effect of tho proclama
* tion declaring the re-establishment
of peace 1 ' is removed by a moro
J careful reading of the corrected
copy," and adds that "it means, so
far as the Executive authority can
accomplish it, restoration of tho
Union of the States on the basis of
equality and a revival of all the
j rights, privileges and powers which
I attach to States, or pertain to indi?
viduals of States." We would have

D., onenof the ablest ?nd most pro?
found men ol the anti-slavery school,
hus written n long letter in the Nor?i
xoostern 'Presbyterian, from which we
make thc subjoined extract. His po?
sition is that all possible amelioration
in favor of negroes most rest on the
basia of a distinction of\ace and color :
There hos been for some years a
party in this country which was un?
derstood to demand the absolute en?
franchisement of the black race, and
its political and social equality with
thc white moe- among ourselves. I
have pointed out the great mistake of
supposing it was the teaching of this
party which produced the national
attempt to abolish slavery by an
amendment of tho Constitution. The
present endeavor on their part is to
realize the equality originally de?
manded for thc black race, by se?
curing it as a condition of restoration
in each of tho revolted States; in par?
ticular, that the right of suffrage
Rhall be given to tho liberated slaves
by the President, as a preliminary in
the reconstruction of society in th?
subjugated States, and shall bo se?
cured in the State Constitutions, as i
condition, without which they sha!
not be recognized as States or ad?
mitted into the Union, it is to b<
remembered that nothing of this sort
i is contained in tho proposed amend
ment to the Constitution. Not h itu
like it is found in tho platform of th?
party which elected Mr. Lincoln foi
tho iirst time, or that which electee
him the second time. Nothing in nivj
Act of Congress. Nothing in any om
of the numerous proclamations lateb
issued by Mr. Johnson, for the ere
at ion of Provisional Governments, an?
the formation of Republican ( -onstitn
tionsand Governments under then1
tho subjugated States. The powe
assumed in the dermod, as existinj
in the President, and which he wisel;
refv.s?d to exercise, does not belon?
to his office, nor to any ollice whatev
er; nor to the Congress of the Unitei
State?, unless these States be firs
despotically reduced to mere territc
rios; nor to the whole people of th
United States, until they shall bo tiri
considered competent to make fe
themselves a despotism - and sha
actually make it-iu which both th
States and the existing form of th
nation would be extinguished, und a
suffrage become a farce. Tho po wt
to make a local Constitution fora frc
State-much moro the power teamen
an existing Constitution in an cxistin
free State-is by our system, and b
the Federal Constitution, a power 1<
cally sovereign-paramount and m
controllable, except by the Constiti
tion of tho United States. And it
only under tho provisions and gua
antees of that national Const kittie

? trust, and would bo certain to cons
tute an element of vital and perpeti
: disturbance, and to fall under the 1
I bitual direction of whatever pa:
was most interested, most active, a
most unscrupulous. When it is ci
sidered that the slaveholders In
everywhere controlled the non-sin
holding white vote, many times nn
numerous than their own, the noti
that the local white vote cannot c<

South, not equal to itself in numbe
j may turn out to be as futile as
; control of that vote by a non-resid
party of extreme opinions would

though it is far from general, t
they should be invested with t

; of them, everywhere. -Nor, il ?
State sees fit of its own aeeor?
offer this inducement to tho set
. mont of the black race in its bod
can anything be said against its h
right to do so. That any Stat?1,
' to itself, will ever bestow suffrage
! a mass of slaves of a different rt
: suddenly set free by a paramount
thority, and nearly equal in num
j to tho rest of its inhabitants, is
event that will hardly be witnessei
! this world. That in any State wi
' slavery never existed, or where ?t
long ceased to oxisj, n white n
both cultivated and prcdomini
i will over give suffragfe of 'its ow n
' cord to a black race resident willi
equal to itself in number, and gre
beneath it in civilization, is an OT
contrary to the feu^ruuijudgm?
mankind, and wholly improbable in
itself. Nor, if tho relative position
of the parties was exactly reversed,
would the result be different; becauso
the instincts of' mankind are more
permanent by far than the caprices of
enthusiasm, and wiser by far than the
extreme conclusions of delusive theo?
ries or of party spirit. Secured in
; the great gift of freedom, protected
! in the rights of person and the rights
of property, 4,000,000 of slaves of a
different race will have received-if

There are, as I have said before,
considerations founded upon the
universal loyalty of this unfortunate
race, and their uniform kindness to
our people when in trouble and in?
ger during the war, which, adde . to
their helplessness, :ippe:d to the
American people most powerfully in
their behalf. And certainly there
has been ur? shortcoming, on tho
part of tin' people or tlie public au?
thorities, in attempting all that
seemed to promise them advantage.
With how much wisdom and success
in most instances, or with bow much
to be deplored, condemned, or even
punished in others, I shall not now
inquire. The great dauger of this
people is. that they will gradually
waste away in the struggle they havi
now to make in competition with th?
stronger race for the means of ex

The New York papers of Thursday
bring startling rumors of two formi?
dable expeditions of the Fenians,
which sailed from that city on Tues?
day night. We give the Daily Newt'
account of the matter:
The authorized statement from the
OTMahony headquarters is to the ef?
fect that B. Doran Killian, whilom
Secretary of the Treasury F. B.,
Rtarted, on Monday evening, in com?
pany with an expedition consisting of
three steamers-two propellers and
one side-wheel steamer of fast-sailing
qualities unrivaled. The expedition
was fitted out with 3,000 men, well
officered, both officers aud men being
mostly composed of veteran sailor?,
who have fought during the late wai
with the South. These? vessels art
well-armed aud equipped, ono ol

one fore Htid one aft, ami four rifle?
guns ?if the heaviest calibre amit

rion and spare arms have been put Ol
board, all intended to find their nlti
mate destination in Ireland.
The second part of the '"xpeditioi
is composed of a couple of propellers
capable of making eighteen miles pe
hour under a full head of steam
These vessels are also fully armed um
equipped, and have on board a com
piement <?f 2,730 men, besides tho?
necessary to manage the vessels
