Another Veto Ikmnndrii.
Another measure of plundering tho
producing interests of the country,
whether iu the agricultural, mechani?
cal br mercantile departments of
labor, is about to be passed by the
faction at Washington, iu the new
tariff bilL The Now York Herald
well calla it the "caowning act of in?
famous legislation, corruption and
imbecility of the present Congress,"
and vehemently demands another
veto from the President. It is a bill,
it says, that, if rightly named, should
be called a bili to enrich a few New
England and Pennsylvania nianufao
turers, and a few rich merchants,
who have largo stocks of goods on
hand, at the expense of the rest of
thejeoxumunity. ) . \ .
Tho iniquity of this intended
fraud upon the material interests of
the country, lies iu the fact that there
ts no necessity for ik Tho tariff of
last year, estimated; when it was
adopted, to yield $70,000,000, pro?
duced $170,000,000. The effect of
tho scheme will be, and doubtlees its
object was, to enrich an already
bloated monopoly, at the expense and
from the pockets of tho farmers of
the North-west, tho planters of the
South, the mechanics, and, in short,
of all the industrial classes of the
country. This is oasily shown, as
this iniquitous tariff is invariably le?

A,telegram to tb> New York Tri
h una, from Washington, asserts that a
delegation from North Carolina is at
tho capital, anxious to>- ascertain* on
what terms that State 'could be ad?
mitted into the Union. They applied
to Thad. Stevens, who inf ormed them
that the State* would have to adopt
the constitutional amendment, and
that it would also bc necessary for
Congross to pass au enabling Act by
a two-thirds vote, sotting forth who in
tho State shall participate in a con?
vention to form a new Constitution.
The telegram further states, that on
being requested to-designate those
who should thus bo recognized, thc
delegation conferred together, and,
on the 3d, seut to Mr. Stevens tho
following draft of a necessary section
of the enabling Act:
"No ono shall bc eligible to a scat
in tho Convention, or permitted to
vote for delegates thereto, or upon
tho ratification of tho Constitution,
that thc Convention shall submit to
tho people, who at any time before
the rebellion, as an ofiicer of the
United States, or of the State, in any
other capacity, had taken an oath to
support tho Constitution of the
United States, ami subsequently
thereto voluntarily engaged in the
rebellion, or intentionally gave aid
and comfort thereto, or wno has held
under the so-called Confederate Go?
vernment the position of President.
Vico-President, member of tho Cabi?
net, member of either brauch of Con?
gress, Judge of tho civil courts, fo?
reign agent or officer of the army
above the grade of colonel, or of the
navy above the grade of lieutenant,
or tho office of Governor, Secretary
of State, or Treasurer of tho State,
while in rebellion, or who resigned
any position under the United States
and took part in tho rebellion, or
who, at any time, voluntarily en?
gaged in molesting-, restraining,
threatening or injuring any citizen,
his family or estate, because of his
opposition to tho rebellion, or be
j cause of his efforts in behalf of the
I Union, unless it shall bc made to ap?
pear that such person ceased to aid
the rebellion, and exerted himself for
a restoration of tho Union before the
first day of January, 1865."
We are disposed to believe that
this whole story is manufactured out
of tho whole cloth ; but if it should
be otherwise, we have no doubt that
the above "draft" of disfranchise?
ment of all true and gallant North
Carolinians, met with the full ap?
proval of old Stevens. It will be in-,
terostiug to know who these delegates
were, and we feel tolerably well
assured that no native Carolinian
could so far forget the first lesson
taught by old Mecklenburg in the
first revolution, or become so recre?
ant to their State or tho descendants
of the men who issued "the first de?
claration of independence" in Ame?
rica, as to bow the knee and suppli?
cate favors at the expense of the
honor of the State, from such an old
fanatic as Thaddeus Stevens. Nous
The Portland Conflagration.
We are not among those who can
rejoice at the destruction of property,
even when it might be considered in
some sense a retribution in kind for
past misdeeds. But the recent de?
struction of a mile and-a-half of the
city ?of Portland, Maine, brings
forcibly back to the mind and imagi?
nation of every Columbian, the fear?
ful night of the 17th February, 18G5,
when about the same area of their
own beautiful city was destroyed; and
?ve should not bc nt all surprised that,
in witnessing the destruction of their
own city, the thoughts of the scenes
that must have been witnessed in
Columbia, did not forcibly present
themselves to the minds and imagi?
nations of many of tho citizens of
Be this as it may, the destruction
caused by such terrible conflagrations
must teach very impressive lessons,
and having passed through the fiery
furnace, wo feel sure that tho largo
majority of tho citizens of Columbia
will sincerely sympathize with the
people of Portland, in the large
amount of individual loss and of
personal suffering caused by this
calamity, which was no doubt the
result of accident; but at the same
time they may justly feel indignant
at tho causes of u very far different
nature which resulted in the destruc?
tion of their own city.

" Just before the adjournment of the
House of Eopresentatives, in thc
?radical Congress, on Tuesday last,
rjdr. Banks, from the Committee'r on
Foreign Affairs, introduced a bill,
.which was ordored to be printed,
"for tho admission of the States of
Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Cana?
da East aud Canada West, and for
tho organization of tho Territories of
Selkirk, Saskatchewan and Colum?
bia. " Tho bill was road twice- and
referred to the Committee on Foreign
Affairs. As a matter of curiosity,
and of interest, if it over should
amount to anything, wo extract somo
of its provisions:
"Tho first section provides that,
whenever notice shall be depositad in
tho Department of State, that thc
Govern men ts of Great Britain and
of the Provinces have accepted thc

tion, the President of tho United

tion, that the States of "Nova Scotia,
Now Brunswick, Canada East and
Canada West, and tho Territories of

are constituted and admitted as States
and Territories of the United States.
Among the propositions is ono, that
the United States will assume tho

per centum interest, as follows : Cana?
da West, $36,500,000; Canada East,
$29,000,000; Nova Scotia, $8,000,000;

much as some of the rest of us, and

We do not know what tho seriout
object is in this new scheme of annex

accession of political power to thc

Great Britain of her territory, or t<
head them in acquiring possession o
it. If the latter, these sapient legis
lators had better hurry up the cakes
for tho Fenians arc again organizing

S ' WASHINGTON, July 4, 18GG.
TJ Ike people of the United States:
Dimgers threaten. The Constitu?
tion-the citadel of our liberties-is
directly assailed. Tho future is clark
unless tho people will come to thc
lu this hour of peril, National
Union should bo tho watch-woi\l ol
every true man.
As essential to National Union, wc
must maintain unimpaired the rights,
the dignity, and the equality of tho
States, including the right of repre?
sentation in Congress, and the ex?

its own domestic concerns, subject
only to tho Constitution of the United
Aftern uniform construction of thc
Constitution for more than half i
century, tho assumption of new ami
arbitrary powers in thc Federal Go
vernmeut is subversive of our systeu
and destructive of liberty.
A free interchange of opinion mu
kind feeling between tho citizens o
idl the States is necessary to the per
petuity of the Union. At present
eleven States ure excluded from th?
national council. For seven mm
months, the present Congress ha
persistently denied any right of rep
rescutatiou to tho people ol* thcs<
States. Laws affecting their highes
and dearest interests have boor
passed, and in disregard of the fun
dameutal principle of free govern
meut. This denial of representation
ha? been made to all tho member
from a State, although tho State, ii
the language of the President, "pre
seats itself not only in an attitude c
loyalty and harmony, but in the pei
sons of representatives whose loyalt
cannot be questioned under any exisi
ing constitutional or legal test."
The representatives of nearly om
third of tho States have not bee
consulted with reference to the gret
questions of the clay. There li?
beeu no nationality surrounding tl
present Congress; there has been IJ
intercourse between the represent)
tives of the two sections producin

Judge who is writing himself down a
more gigantic donkey than even our
own precious Underwood, lt would
seem that the lamented Lincoln must
have broken up some traveling me?
nagerie when he achieved the "big
joke" of appointing Federal Judges for
the Southern districts.

lemnity, that "if aman has committed

therefor, and taken tho necessary
oath, and thou, like an ingrate,
breaks Iiis oath, he is remitted to his
original state of guilt, and is a male?
factor deserving tho punishment of
treason, perjury and ingratitude. And
does a man, the Judge asks, keep his
oath to faithfully support the Consti?

Union of the State thereunder, whose
every word concerning either is one
of abuse und detraction? The grund
jury are requested to take notice of
tlio speech of these oath-takers, and
to remember their own oaths."
It is possible that Underwood may
have talked nonsense almost as absurd
as this, but it has escaped our at?
tention. What rendors this farrago
still moro absurd, is tho definition of
treason in another part of this charge
by Busteed, iu which he emphatically
instructs the jury that the offence of
treason can only be committed by
"taking up arms against tho Govern?
ment." Ho thou deliberately assures
his jurors'thnt, in the case of "pardon?

The absurdities of these poor, j

exceedingly diverting. Whore in the

I depart from the rule of all newspa

i conspicuous place in his paper. Po
