A Washington letter io tho Boston
Post, contains Homo extraordinary
statements in regard to tho policy of
Mr. Lincoln, in reconstructing tho
Southern States, which were first
disclosed by Ooneral Grant, in his
testimony before the Judiciary (im?
peachment) Committee of Congress.
The ?ourso pursned by President
Johnson, it appears, was identical
with that which had been determined
upon by Mr. Lincoln; and it further
appears that Secretary Stanton bad
drafted for Mr. Lincoln a proclama?
tion, on the subject of reconstruction,
in which he claimed that the whole
power on this subject belonged to the
The principal charge against Presi?
dent Johnson, by thoso favoring im?
peachment, and the one upon which
they rely for his conviction, is that
be attempted to reconstruct the
Southern States, without legislative
authority, thus usurping legislative
powers, in violation of the Constitu?
tion. They do not dispute that the
President's policy has boen consis?
tent, and that it was completely shop?
ed in his first proclamation, relative
to the restoration of North Carolina,
as a State in tho Union. The polioy,
as contained in that proclamation,
hos been steadily pursued, whenever
and wherever the President has acted
in the premises. If his policy of re?
construction was violative of the Con?
stitution, and rendered him liable to
impeachment, for high crimes and
misdemeanors, this policy is all em?
bodied in his first North Carolina
proclamation. The correspondent
then notices General Grant's testi?
mony before the committee, as wei]
as Stanton's complicity in the matter.
"Tho General stated that just
prior to President's Lincoln's assassi?
nation, he was called in consultation
ou the subject of North Carolina, and
that Mr. Lincoln then read in his
hearing a proclamation which had
been prepared, and which he pro?
posed publishing-and that the pro?
clamation subsequently issued by
President Johnson for the reconstruc?
tion Of North Carolina was the iden?
tical proclamation which had been
prepared by the late President. It
is thus proven by General Grant that
the policy of Mr. Johnson is but the
carrying out of the plans and pur?
poses of President Lincoln. But tho
evidence of Mr. Stantou is still moro
interesting, and shows up the posi?
tion then occupied by the ex-Secre?
tary of War. The fact was drawn
from him that ho had drafted a pro?
clamation for Mr. Lincoln, in which
the Tvholo subject of reconstruction
was claimed as belonging to tho
Executive Department. He was re?
quested to furnish the . Judiciary
Committee with a oopy of this draft,
and ho promised to comply, if the
document could bc found, but he
afterward took good care that it
should not bo.fouud-nor has ho over
furnished the copy."
What will become of impeachment
now? The Post's correspondent is
said to bo a very reliable gentleman,
and one of tho few Washington cor?
respondents in whom the public have
confidence. According to his state?
ment, Mr. Stanton's draft of a pro?
clamation ignored in toto any inter?
ference, on the part of Congress,
with the subject of reconstruction;
and that, had Mr. Lincoln lived, ho
would have exercised exclusive au?
thority and restored tho States by

Thc Finance? of th? Country.
This subject, as a matter of course,
taking the national debt and the sys?
tem of taxation now oppressing the
people, is most important, and has
i drawn forth the Tia wa of a large
! number of writers-some competent
and others ignorant of anything per?
taining to it The New York Jfer
caniile Journal, which professes to
know, and really does know, the
sham from the real of financial writ?
ing or speaking; writes very con?
temptuously of the efforts of leading
politicians to solve the financial ques?
tion. This able journal truthfully
declares, that the first necessity for
general solvenoy-State or individual
-is an honorable peace between the
sections. This is the common sense
view of tho matter, and all specula?
tion whioh ignores this great neces?
sity is idle and of no use whatever.
The Journal says: *
The money doctors have the usual
diversity of views. Ono believes in
"feeding a oold to starve a fever,"
and wants to pile high our foreign
importations, so that the people may
get plenty of cheap goods when they
have no money to get them with;
another, like Sangrado, thinks that
moro "bleeding" is what we need,
more i. e. taxes and duties, and a
total exclusion of foreign manufac?
tures by heightened exports, as a
sovereign method of getting money
enough to pay our debts, by allowing
ns to give ten pieces to homo specu?
lators and make millionaires of smug?
glers; a third thinks repudiation and
the consequent crash of all our secu?
rities a good thing in tho way of a
settlement, nnd a settler it would be
to us, no doubt; a fourth opines that
a complete turn over of the entire
Government might bc about the
right thing, as convincing mankind
what a tremendously great people we
are, and how much wo can "stand."
In fine, every form of stimulant,
depletive, laxative, blister, plaster,
etc., hos been suggested, but all for
the surface, as will be remarked by
an attentive reader. That anything
is radically wrong, not ono of the
financial physicians seems to trouble
himself to think, unless it bo Senator
(late Governor) Morton, of Indiana,
who has actually discovered a cure
for the trouble where plain business
men of sense have all along been
looking for it.
"Specie payments can be reached,"
says he, "without contracting tho
currency, by waiting a reasonable
time, until successful reconstruction
and the growth of wealth and busi?
ness shall have brought the country
up to the existing volume of currency
without a financial revuLion."
A second Daniel come to judg?
ment! The worthy Senator is kind
enough to thus emphatically sustain
what wo have been preaching nil
along. But can ho impress these
very simple viows upon tho minds of
his Congressional colleagues? Can
he make our financial philosophers
comprehend that a mau with nn
empty purse nud out at the elbows
docs not better Iiis condition b}r re?
pudiating his old debts, trying to run
up new ones, und pawning all the
other articles in his dilapidated ward?
robe to raise the prico of a fresh hat
or pair of boots? The Irishman's
method of cutting a strip off one end
of ?his blanket and sewing it to the
other to make it longer, would hardly
do in bis situntiou or in ours.
What docs the same individual do
in such a case? He holds away from
dissipation and extravagance; ceases
bis bar-room discussions; stops squab?
bling with his neighbor on any ques?
tion, particularly on mere abstract
theories; assures his creditors of his
intent to pay ?it tho earliest reason?
able moment, and goes honestly and
seriously to work to prove that intent.
That is tho first stop to the recovery
of outsido confidence aud inside
vigor and resources.
Tho American nation, as a people,
has nobly tried to do this, and tho
first year after the cessation of our
civil war, showed that it was done to
good purpose. If it had been lot
alone in this course, wo should not

United States Circuit Court of Geor?
gia. The Borne Courier says;
"Youell, iu 1864, purchased of
Dean his plantation, in Floyd Coun?
ty, Georgia, for $24,000 in Confede?
rate money. Dean remained in pos
'session, but since the war entered
into a re cunt contract for the place
with Harvey, the administrator of
Youell. Afterwards Dean filed a bill
in the Superior Court of Floyd Coun?
ty to set aside the sale and to enjoin
Harvey from turning him out of pos?
session, upon the ground that the
consideration of tho purchase was
Confederate money, and the sale
therefore void. The Superior Court
of this County first granted the in?
junction, but afterwards dissolved it
ou motion of Harvey & Scott, the
administrator's counsel. In the menu
time. Dean moved to Alabama, leav?
ing his tenant in possession, and dis?
missing his case in the Superior
Court, and commenced his suit by
bill, as before, in tho Uuitod States
District Court for Northern Georgia,
praying for injunction, relief, etc.
The case being argued on demurrer
at tho present term, his houor Judge
Erskine dismissed tho bill, sustain?
ing the rights of the pnrchaser. The
case has excited a great deal of inte?
rest, and is, perhaps, the most im?

A PARIS PRACTICAL JOKE.-The
Paris correspondent of the Globt
I "Practical joking, I hud thought,
died out long ugo in all decent socio
! ty; but, if newspapers aro to bo be?
lieved-a thing of which I am not ni
all certain-(I speak, of course, onlj
I of thoso of France and tho rest ol
the continent)-it still flourishes in
j tho highest society of this conntry.
I Here, for example, greatly condons
ed, is a story I find in one of tin
journals of Paris: A distinguished
party was a fortnight ago tho guest!
of the Marquis do Ga-, in th<
chateau of-, in tho neighborhood
of Trouville. Tho ladies of the part]
being bored, resolved somewhat un
gratefully, iu order to amuse them
selves to play oft* a joko on theil
host. So one night they placed i
quantity of flour between tho sheet
of his bed. At his customary hour
the marquis retired to rest, but th'
strange substance astonished him
and he jumped up. He found him
self as white as a miller, from hea<
to foot. A few moments rcllectioi
convinced him that he was the victin
of a trick. He coolly rang for hi:
valet, made the man scrape him am
wash him, and change tho sheets
Ho then returned to bed. Tho nex
morning he said not a word of wha
had happened. Three evenings afte
he proposed to drive to a small shoot

thoro was a splendid view, and whoi
he got there he offered the ladies ten

declared that they had never see:
anything like it in Paris. 'Yet notli

take your flour,' continued he, wit
all tho solemnity of a cookery boot
'and then loll a man in it.' Th
ladies looked aghast. 'Yes, me:

A JUVENILE "Snow."-Last sun
mer, a little boy only live years c li
invited me into the summer-house t
see his "show." I paid a penny t
the door, and gravely seated myse
on a bench to wait for tho perforo
ance to begin. There was a piece <
twine stretched across the summe
house, and Master Harry took h
seat beside it, saying.
"These aro my tamed grosshoppei
in this box, and I've touched 'em 1

Ho took a great brown grasshoppi
from the box, placed him on tl
string, and to my astonishment 1
crawled slowly along it to tho othi
side, and made no attempts to j um

aud found that his legs had been r
moved, so of course ho could r
nothing but crawl.
"Why, Harry," I exclaimed, "ho
could you bo so cruel?"
"I didn't hurt him a bit, auntie
was his confident reply; "those gre
things were just in tho way, aud 1
never could walk like ioiss."
"But it did hurt him, Harry,"
explained; "his legs were a part
his body, just as much as your lej
aro apart of you."
"Wasn't a speck of juico in 'er
anyway," persisted Harry, lookir
rather soberly at his tamo grassho

? ludiorouB, bat still a painful and
embarrassing incident occurred to an
acquaintance of Ours, during tho week
ol the Shelby County fair. Our
friend, who is a gallant young
widower, was visiting a house in the
country, whioh, at that time, among
its other tenants, contained three
beautiful and 'accomplished young
ladies. It is supposed by the know?
ing ones that one of these young
ladies was the principal fair which
attracted our friend to Shelby Coun?
ty. Be that as it may, he went to
stay the week out, and was duly sap
plied with raiment suitable for the
On his . arrival, he was shown to
his room, where he immediately com?
menced getting himself up fordinner.
Tuking from his valise ? uloaay broad
cloath" coat, ho hung it up by an
open window, in order to let the
wrinkles in it get somewhat smoothed
out before dinner. When that im?
portant event arrived, our hero, hur?
riedly putting on his coat, repaired
to the parlor, and from thence ac?
companied tho ladies to the dining
room. He had barely seated himself
before he astonished the company by
a loud ejaculation and a violent slap
of his shoulder.
Ho kept on ejaculating, writhing,
and slapping vigorously for a short
time, when ho suddenly jumped to
his feet, nearly upsetting the table,
and roared out. "What in h-1 is
it." At tho same time, ho was strip?
ping himself of his coat and vest.
Tho ladies became very much fright?
ened at his frautic movements, and
beat a hasty retreat. They thought
he had become suddenly crazy, and
was going to strip himself naked in
bia insane spasm. So they flew to
the parlor aud barricaded the door.
In tho meantime, our friend had
discovered the cause of his fright.
Several enormous hornets bad crawled
into his coat sleeves, while that gar
j ment was hanging nt tho window,
and not liking their confined posi?
tion, they had commenced pegging
away at him as soon as he sat down.
The painful stabs coming in such
quick succession, and so unaccounta?
bly, lilied tho mind of the victim with
terror. He thought of vipers, couti
pedes and tarantulas, and who shall
blame him for being frightened out
of his wits.
The cause of bis curious conduct
was explained to the ladies, much to
their relief. Their hearts were filled
with sympathy and mirth, and that
was a merry little dinuer party not?
withstanding its inauspicious com?
Our friend bas recovered from the
stings of the hornets, but rumor hath
it that tho arrow from Cupid's bow
still rankles in his heart. Let her
rankle, and if he goes cruzy again,
we trust that his inquiry-"what is
it?" will bo made in a lower tono and
directed to a different party.
BROKE THE PLEDGE.-In a certain
"Ladies' Moral Keform Society,"
existing not many miles from the
bank of a certain river, the members
wero required to sigu a pledge not to
"set up," ns it is termed, or do any?
thing elso that might be supposed to
have a tendency, however remote, to
immorality. Ono evening, as tho
president was calling over the names
to know whether each member had
kept her obligation, a beautiful and
highly respectable young lady burst
into tears, and on being questioned
as to tho cause, said she feared that
she hadbroko her pledge.
"Why, what have you done?" asked
"Oh!" sobbed the young lady,
"Dr.-kissed mo the other night,
when he waited on me home from
"O, well, that is nothing very
bad," said tho president; "his kiss?
ing you does not make it that you
have broken tho pledge."
"Oh! that isn't tho worst of it,"
exclaimed tho young lady, "I kissed
him back again."

Tribune frequently prints a good

"D. H."-Au editor who knows

as tho publication of tho news, and
an editorial notice, which is designed
to supply tho placo of or add value
to a regular advertisement, has even
less claim to a gratuitous idsertion
than would such an advertisement.

THE PLANTING INTEREST.-It has
been remarked by a practical mau,
that whenever breadstuffs rule high,
cotton is depressed, and vice, versa.
He states that he has never known it
to fail. Tho Southern people, in
their present poverty, should draw a
lesson from this strange coincidence,
and abandon the culture of cotton on
so largo a scale, and take to that of
raising grain crops. It is very cer?
tain that the price of provisions pro?
mises to be high, in spite of reported
good crops, and before making ar?
rangements for another year, planters
would do well to make very close cal?

gates were present, and they aro
spoken of as a body of men as re?
spectable and intelligent as ever were
convened in Cincinnati.
A journalist in New York ,gravely
proposes, and urges with a great deal
of force, the necessity for the estab?
lishment of an "Asylum for Useless

be to provide for a class of rather re?
