What la rsaipatlon!
The radical orators and organs
having accused the President as a
usurper, the New York Herald, of
Friday, publishes the following
The Constitution provides that the
President sl?all veto all bills of which
he disapproves. Is President John?
son 4'a usurper" because he has vetoed
two bills ont of the forty-two pre- j
sented to him by this Congress? !
Politicians are so accustomed to
corruption and rapacity that when a
President declines power and patron?
age, they call him^'a usurper. " They
do not know a patriot when they see
him, but the people do.
The civil rights bili would have
enabled President Johnson to impri?
son all State judges who disagreed
with him about the negro. Yet he
vetoed the bilL Was that usurpation?
Thousands of new offices could
have been created by the Freedmen's
Bureau bill, and uuder it the Presi?
dent could have lilied these offices
with his favorites. He refused to
take this immense power aud patron?
age. Was that the act of "a usur?
Civil war is favorable to the pro?
jects of a usurper. President Johu
son has just proclaimed peace. But
the radicals accuse him of usurpa?
Congress opened the Treasury of
the United States to President John?
son, and authorized him to take out
as much money as he liked, and dis?
tribute it among his political friends.
He declined to touch a penny of it.
Is he a patriot or "a usurper?"
A usurper is a person who seizes
power which does not legitimately
belong to him. President Johnson
sternly declines all such power, even
when Congress urges him to take it.
How, then, can the radicals call him
Grant is "a usurper," according to
the radicals, because he disbanded
the greater part of the '. /my, and de?
clared that the war was ended. Pre?
sident Johnson has only restored us
to a peace policy, and if he be "a
usurper," so is (?rant.
Aggrandizement, both personal and
political, is the motive of "a
usurper." By his vetoes, President
Johnson has voluntarily deprived
himself of the golden opportunities
for such aggrandizement placed with?
in his reach by Congress. If this be
usurpation, make the most of it.
Supreme control of the Southern
States was placed in the hands of the
President by the passageof theFrced
men's Bureau and civil rights bills.
He vetoed the bills. And yet he is
called "a usurper."
Violations of constitutional rights
distinguish all usurpers. President
Johnson obeys the Constitution to the
letter. Is this usurpation ?
President Johnson has restored the
right of Ttabeas cor ??us. Does "a
usurper " relinquish despotic powers
in that way ?
Several radical papers are frequent?
ly harping upon the idea that leonis
Napoleon stands in great dread of
war with the United States. It is
both unwise and dangerous to incul?
cate such an idea. The time has
never yet been when this country was
in a condition ?. J bully France, and it
is in that condition now less than on
any previous occasion. We have
several times bullied Enjland, and
may do it successfully again; but bul?
lying France is a very different mat?
ter, and we do not want to see it tried.
Tt is dangerous.
What, pray, is there in the present
appearance of this country calculated
to frighten'France, or any other first
class power? Have we a Union, the
source of all our former strength?
We look in vain for it, because we find
tho exclusion of eleven States from
all participation in ,the Government
~ thoroughly disunites North and
e radicals have effected disunion
completely than secession did.
yet, with a divided household
trouble at home-with
heal-they think they are scaring not
only France, but all creation besides, j
Do they realize that unless the South
is in the Uuion, the victory of the
late war has brought them weakness
instead of strength?
Talk about alarming Trance, or
even a second-rate power, with the
dread of war! "We cannot do so until
we have a restored Union. And Louis
Napoleon, who is better posted in the
]>olities, condition and prospects of
this country than thc radicals are,
knows the exact extent of our weak?
ness. He uo doubt laughs heartily
at the idea of his being frightened,
when really there is nothing *o be
The boot is ou the other leg. It
woidd l>e well for this country to be
alarmed, until its locks have grown
out again-until the Union of our
fathers, in its justice, strength and
affection, shall be restored. Then. I
indeed, nations will dread us, but not
The New York Times, of tho 2d
inst., discourses very sensibly touch?
ing the relations of the South to the
present Congress. Characteristically,
however, it leaves unmentioned tho
right-the constitutional right-of
the Southern States to representation
and a voice in the legislation of the
oouutry. That paper lias been pursu?
ing a course in regard to these ques?
tions by no means commendable for
candor. It supports the President,
and opposes the radicals, but it does
so on the score of policy merely. It
does this ably and conclusively, but
there is displayed a manifest indispo?
sition or timidty, we know not which,
to go down to the granite-to discuss
and declare the principle involved.
It says that many questions are
constantly arising in regard to which
only the Southern members of a
Congress, constitutionally organized,
are able to give the requisite and
reliable information, and it cites the
export tax on cotton as one of them.
There are many of the subjects ol
equal importance, not to the South?
ern States only, but to the whole
country, which cannot be disposed
of properly and justly, without that
conference and consultation, under s
due sense of responsibility, which i>
the right and duty of members of f
Congress representing all the interest!
most directly involved. Legislatioi
by a part for the whole is wrong ii
principle, and in practice can product
nothing but evil. It is violate of one
if not of the leading feature of Bepub
licau institutions, and the attempt t<
administer the Government undo
such system will prove a failure an?!
produce interminable discord.
There Ls no objections to argu
menta agaiust the impolicy of ;
rump Congress like that sitting a
Washington, but such papers as th
New York Times should attack it upoi
the other and higher ground. It i
clearly unconstitutional, and if sud
influential presses as the Times wouit
but boldly declare it such, the wor
of restoring the Government would b
greatly facilitated. -NasJiville Union.

fibres the one that attracts the mo:
attention in England is that of tl

with other species of nettle whic
abounds in various parts of India,
j is anticipated that fibres from th
