Hon. Reyebdy Johnson on the Third
Term.?A pungent and conclusive letter
from Hon. Reverdy Johnson to the Now
York Herald, commenting upon Gen.
Gront'b third term letter, has been pub?
lished. While Mr. Johnson concedes
that a constitutional prohibition against
s> third term does not exist, he maintains
that this is no proof that the usage of
prohibition is not and should not be con?
sidered as conclusive. He holds that
long and uninterrupted usage in a Go?
vernment like ours cannot safeiy be dis?
regarded. He illustrates his position by
an allusion to the present condition of
the veto power in England, which, by an
ancient law of the realm, the crown pos?
sesses, and which Mr. JuBtioe Black
stone says "is a most importaut and, in?
deed, indispensable part of the royal
prerogative. Yet this power, says Mr.
Johnson, has not been exercised since
1692; and has bo fallen into disuso that
its exercise by the crown would produce
a fearful ferment in the kingdom. Thus
is shown is that representative and law
abiding country the conclusive force and
effect of usage. The tradition against a
third term is and ought to be as muoh a
precedent here as the tradition against
the veto power in England. Every Chief
Magistrate of the United States since the
days of Washington has recognized the
force of his example, and not one of them
ever dreamed of a third term. Mr. John?
son does not think it probable that Pre?
sident Grant will be renominated or re
elected a third term. There are many
who believe that if the agitation of the
question should lead to a one-term
amendment to the Constitution it would
not have been an unmized evil.
Three English steamers are at Galves

This' is a new outlet, and may become
one of immense importance to the South.

When this vast army pulls trigger in
earnest, there will be rivers of some kind
of blood. Tho whole army,1 both infant?
ry and artillery, will have their new
weapons in 1877, about the time Prince
Bismarck will probably think it neces?
sary to cross over into France.
