Gen. J. C. Breckenridge.
The Richmond Times has the fol
lowing exceUent article on this gallant !
At tho recent term of the United
States District Court in this city
and we suppose it can be called a
"term" upon the principle of "iucus
a non lucendo," for there was no law
whatever authorizing it-a weak
minded jury, nt the instigation of
an ignorant judge, indicted, it is
said, on? of the most eminent Ame?
ricans now hving-C?en. John C.
Brackenridge; It is said '.his was ?
done in order to throw an obstacle in
the way of the Executive's clemency j
towards this distinguished gentlemen.
Ii such were the idea, it was a most |
fallacious one; for the pardon of the j
President can be granted nt any time, !
and when issued, relieves its recipient j
of all disabilities and penalties which
he may have incurred under tho
laws of the United States.
We doubt if, saving and excepting j
Gen. Lee, there is a single Confede
rate leader more endeared to the
hearts of the Southern people than !
John C. Breckenridge. There is j
scarcely one whose influence for good
among them would be greater in i
these troublous times. His life has |
been devoted to his country, and of
him that great lawyer and good man, i
Chief Justice Taney, once said, "he
never knew a purer public man."
Those qualities of heart and soul
that excited the admiration of and
called forth that remark from Judge
Taney, are well-known to and find
response in Andrew Johnson. It is
this fact which excites the apprehen?
sion of the radicals, and renders them
clamorous for his outlawry and exile.
They well know that in John C.
Breckenridge the President would
find a fast friend and firm supporte!
in the wise and statesmanlike policy
he is pursuing for the restoration of
Mr. Breckenridge had scarcely
passed the age of manhood when, as j
major of the famous First Kentucky ;
Cavalry, in response to tho call of his '
country, he served with marked dis- \
tinction on the bloody field of Buena ;
"Vista. His conduct in battle, Ins
daring bravery, is said by th se who
witnessed it, to have reminded them '.
of the famous Paladins of old. As j
an orator, he scarce had a peer in the j
. Congress of the old United States, j
Those who heard his eulogy upon
Mr. Clay, and his oration upon leav- I
ing the old halls of Congress for tho ?
new, will long remember those flights
of eloquence, blending tho chaste
beauty of Cicero with Demosthenic !
strength, that were poured forth with j
the ore rotundo that marks the mau j
who is born an orator. There was !
that electrical sympathy between ;
himself and his audience that only
such a once can produce. As a sol-1
dier. there was that indescribable .
quality in him which all great chief- :
tains have possessed, and which ?so I
essential to a successful warrior.
There was something in the very ap- j
pearance of the man, as he rode into !
action with the light of battle ou his i
hus^lsome face, which inspired his |
troops with frantic enthusiasm and
gaye the faint-hearted triplo courage, j
His noble and generous spirit, iu 1
which united the bravery of a lion i
with the gentleness of a woman, we !
feel sure never stirred up strife, nor 1
entertained bitter, implacable feel?
ing?. Daring Christmas week, 'GO, !
after South Carolina had withdrawn !
from the Federal Union, in his room 1
at the National Hotel, in the city of
Washington, we heard him reply to a
friend who said that he hoped again
to have the pleasure ol' veting for
him for Presiden^ "I trust in God i
we may once more have the privilege 1
of voting for President nuder a j
united country." Remaining at !
Washington at. his post of Senator !
from Kentucky as long ns thero was
a hope of averting the internecine
fratricidal war, when his efforts were
useless before the storm of popular
fury, be cast bis lot with the cause
he thought just. History will record
his prowess and feats of arms.
In quiet and dignified retirement,
in a secluded village in Canada, thia
eminent soldier and statesman, whose
great heart beats with but one re*
spouse at the thought of his country
and fur her good, now awaits the
progress of events that may restore
him to his li?me and kindred. To
liim we can quote sadly and feelingly
that touching ode of the Latin poet,
"Quis exsul a patria," etc.,
and pray for his speedy return to his
