The Pren aa til? President's Ka Klmx
The Washington Palriol calls it an
"incendiary message," and declares that
no stretch of charity can bring it (the
Patriot) to suppose that, for hts terrible
oharge against "some of the States," our
Chief Magistrate bas any evidence that
he himself believes in. "He avers, as
President, a baseless fabric of Action,
and asks Congress to give color to his
The New York Tribune justifies tho
message, while, at the same time, it says:
"Practically, this message will prove an
appeal to arms." It speaks of "crusbiug
the new rebellion," [where is it?] and
"The effect of this message on tbe
country will be far more exciting, we
imagine, tban either its writer or Con?
gress contemplates. It is n recognition
of tbe great strength of the Ku Klux
organization, wbi;h many persousat the
North have, heretofore, regarded with
That very indifference, justified by the
true facts in the case, was the grievance
with the Republican politicians at Wash?
ington, and, henoe, they induced the
Pr?sident to take the indiscreet step that
Tho New York Herald talks about law?
less doings, more particularly in connec?
tion with the collection of internal reve?
nue ia certain parts of some Southern
Staten, (as if there had not been like
difficulties in Northern States,) and says,
ajpprovingly, of the message:
"The legislation hinted at ?B something
in the shape of tbe law of Washington's
time for the suppression of the Pennsyl?
vania whiskey insurrection. We sup?
pose, too, that some each bill as that
proposed by Senator Pomeroy will be
paused, authorizing the President, in
any district where he may deem it neces?
sary, to suspend the habeas corpus, to
declare martial law, and to employ the
army and navy against the lawless bands
"Beyond this legislation General
Grant has nothing to recommend as ne?
cessary at tbe present session. In other
words, he suggests no legislation at pre?
sent on the tariff or the internal revenue
-the very subjects upon which the
whole people are most deeply interest?
The New York Times says of the mes?
sage and its reference to a committeo of
nine iu the House:
"The committee will, without doubt,
report a bill which will secure the united
support of the Republican party. The
time which has been consumed in debate
on this question is not lost. Opinions
have been exohanged, and the temper of
Congress ascertained. It bas been diffi?
cult to convince some members that any
legislation was needed, while others
could not make up their minds as to the
kind of legislation required. The mes?
sage of the President clears away the
fog, and indicates with precisiou the
duty of Congress."
AH the message does not pretend to
give any facts that Congress was not be?
fore in possession of, it is difficult tn seo
how it "clears away the fog."
The New York World says:
"We may look for excited discussions
in both Houses, and tho object of the
Rad oals ?ill be attained if by convulsing
Congress they uau awaken iu the country
the bitterness of the punt, aad thus give
the party a little louger lease of life.
Under the fresh impetus given to the
Ku Klux sensation by tho action of the
House, several outrageous bills were in?
troduced in the Senate. lu most re?
spects they reviv?! tho most odious fea?
tures of tho Butler bill. We presume
they will not pass in the shape they have
been presented. To suppose othetwise
would be to concede the failure of our
Republican form of Government."

The New York World says of th? de
j plorable Been es now being enacted in
Paris and their Authors: It it impossible
to over-estimate the importance of the
events whioh are transpiring in Paris.
The entire revolutionary movement is
controlled by the Bed Republicans, and
is directed against M. Thiers and the
National Assembly. If the views and
doctrines of the Paris radicals are what
the insurgents aim to make paramount,
then tho object is to establish a socialistic
republic, and to resuscitate in Franco all
the grotesque and demoralising princi?
ples of tho first republic-principles
whioh have sapped tho morals of the
French people, nnd given to Paris the
unenviable notoriety of a city ;n which
twenty-five per cent, of the children
born yearly are illegitimate. We trans?

in a general assembly of delegates, rep?
resenting upward of 200 battalions, has
for its mission the constitution of the
Bepublican Federation of the National

Thc Contral Commit leo is not an
anonymous body; it is an assembly of
bearers of mandates of free men, who
know their duty, affirm their rights and
seek to establish a solidarity between all
members of the National Guard.
It protests, therefore, against all im?
putations tending to misrepresent the
expression of its programme, with a view
of hindering its execution. Its acts
have always been signed; they have had
but one object-the defence of Paris.
It rejects with scorn the calumnies in?

The expiration of the armistice, con?
cerning the prolongation of whioh tho
Journal Officiel, of February 26, has
maintained silence, had generated tho
legitimate emotion of all Paris. The re
nowal of hostilities was, in effect, inva?
sion, occupation and all the calamities to
which conquered cities are subject.
Hence, the patriotic fever whioh, in
ono night, aroused and placed under
arms the whole National Guard, was not
due to the influence of a provisional
commission appointed for the elabora?
tion ef political statutes; it was the true
expression of the sentiment of the popu?

THE EMPEROR WILLIAM'S SPEECH
FROM THE THRONE-OPENING OF THE
( 1 HUMAN PABIIIAMENT.-The German
Parliament was opened, on tbo 21st in?
stant, by the Emperor William, who, in
person, delivered the speech from the
throne. The Emperor said:
When I seo the German Roichstag for
the first time, after the glorious but try?

blessed the faithful unity of the German
allies, the heroism and disciplino of the
armies, and the devotion of the people.
We have what our forefathers struggled
for-the unity of Germany and the se?
curity of her frontiers. Our conviction
of future unity was veiled; the ever
present enthusissm of the people rent the

ened, the nation unanimously rose in he;
defence sud traced its firm will, in indeli?
ble characters, on the battle-fields ol
France, to remain a united people,
The spirit animating Germany per?
vades her culturo and morals, and the
constitution of her armies guards the

Germany respects the independence ol
