The Constitution and Wholesale
The Constitution and Wholesale Confiscation.
Among tbe radical and .extreme measures
now before Congress, The' general confiscation
bill bold, perbeps, lie IgremWrankLThere
are many welgtatj,saao e my aTAconclueJve
objection! to these neaenree oa the score of pol
io; and expedieocr, bat ii may bt wall to In
qalre whether the Federal Constitution' does not
interpose 4 barrier to their enactment, at least,
la the form la which they have teed brought
forward. That Instrument prerldee that
No pereoa ah all be convicted of treasonon
leee on the testimony of two witnesses to the
aame overt act, or on confession la open court.. u
No atuioder et treason shall work ccr
ruplloa of blood, or forfeiture axon? daWnj the

The trial of all erlmee', except In ciee of Im
peachment, shall bo by jury; and such trial shall
be held in the State where the taid crime ikall
Asm been wiMaV-Art. 3,8ec. 8 .f :.
No person shall be deprived of life,
liberty er property without doe process ol law.
Art. 5 of amendments. - ' .
At has been well seiS, the phrase ''iue'pr'o
cms of law," his a judicially settled meaning,
and the summary "procecs'' provided for in
meet, IT not in all the confiscation bilbj, U not
the "doe process of lew" jsqntred by the Co
CraflRttfoo, according to tie, Conatiiutioa
loilowa npon an attainder pi treason.'' The bills
provide for the cpajiioation f the property of
"rebels, bat do lot specify who are to be con
sidered and treated as rebels. We are left In
the dark as to whether the foreitura is te . take
place upon conviction for treason or some other
undefined crime,. . ..
Tbeta bills provide for the confiscation of
the real and personal property of rebels; and
for the sale of their estates to loyal purchasers,
Bat under the Constitution forfeiture does not
take plaoe until the persesi has been tried by a
jury in the Bute where the crime " wai euualt-
ted, and has been found guilty. , It fs also pro
vide loat tbe forfeiture of estate shall be
limited to the life of the person attainted.
Senator Taomou in bis bill, attempted to
meet this last requirement, bat tried to ' excuse
the omisiion of the one as to a trial In the State
where the crime waa committed, because, ai be
alleged, it was Impracticable. " ;
That tbe sweeping confiscation bills now be
fore Congress do, in many of their" proTisiwit,
violate tbe Constitntiooeannot but be 'readily
conceded by every candid and well-informed
mao. In fact, their authors do not attempt to
justify them in their full extent npon strict con
stitutional grounds, but upon their allege, ne
cessity j 7Tbs .logic is they are . necessary,
therefor) fhey are constitutional. By' such
reasoning anything may be proved to be consti
tutional. ts-itii'viV'li wC'OUi
Wt cloaa with patting to the patriotic reader
a question which we find in the New York Eve
ning Feet "Shall we ourselves, ia passionate
revenge; trample that vary Constitution tinder
foot, for violating whloh we are waging war
agaiubt the rebels!" --
The Abolition Programme.
The Baltimore correspondent of the New
York Herald states that the "abolition wing of
the Republican party Is completely organized
as a party io opposition to the President, and to
the policy enunciated in his message." , He
enumerates tbe following measures aa their
programme: x. . i - -1.
The cassette of Thad. Stevens's resola
lions, declaring free and offering freedom to all
slaves who will leave their masters. -
2. Tbe pssiage of Lyman Trumbull's bill con
fiscating all the property ot the rebels, including
their slaves. . .,- . .-, .
3. The pssiage of a bill abolishing slsvery in
the District ot Colombia.
4. The total, immediate and unconditional re
peal of the Fugitive Slave law of 1850 (one of
tbe compromise measures of that year).
5. The pottage of joint resolution requesting
tie President le remove Generti MeCleUan from
the lupreme esmwwntf f the nny, mni te -
net General Banks in nit tteai, and to rettort
Qenernl Fremont to the command of the Depart
ment of Mutonri. .c:-. - v ,.
6. The passage of an act obliterating the
boundary between the States of North Caro
lina and Soath Carolina, throwing tbe two States
into one, and calling die State thus formed sim
7. The pas lags of a joint resolution declaring
that alavary ia tit oause of the war, and that
the war cannot be brought to a aaocessial ter
mination until the eanse ia removed. ' , ,";'
Tbe aame writer farther states that he has
seen oopiea of all the foregoing bills and reso
lutions, that tbe Abolition party In Congress
coast seventy votes, and that they not only
eount npon a majority for these measures, but,
if the President should veto them, as the cor
respondent thinks ha undoubtedly will, expect a
two-thirds vote, by which they will Carry them
with a high hand over hie head.' -
It would appear from the tenor of an article
in the New York rTorW, which wo copy -elsewhere,
that these expectations, if such are n
Urtalned by tbe radical! In Congrees.'may be
doomed to disappointment; bat tbe World has
set Itself op aa mora month-piece of tne Presi
dent, and will follow where it oaeMes he Intends
to lead. The President with a amall body
gutrd of Republican now stands hi iteming
opposition to the more radical Republic na.
We say teeming opposition, because he haa in
nopublio way taken a decided stand against
radicalism aad in favor of conservatism. He
occupies before the people neutral ground, and
maybe, and Is, claimed by both wings of tbe
Republican party. Perhaps he wishes to keep
himself In that position as long as possible, so
that he can act as a eeapromier aad reconcile or
re-unite the two factions.
All w have to aay in regard to I uch a eourje
on the part of President Limcolw, "or any oth
er man," fs that It subordinates tbe good of tbe
country to tbe Interests of party. Nothing so
much shakes our confidence la the anility of
the Federal Government to sustain, itself maj
fully la the trying exigencies now npon us and'
shortly to come, as the indecisive and nasi tat.
lng coarse of the President and the consequent
bickerings and divisions in the Cabinet- and In
the Administration party in Congress." There
U a great deal ai noise and bluster At Washing
ton; bat it all teems likely to ultimate la streo
loot afforta to aave tbe negro aad, "let " the
Union slide."' If the Abolitionists could dis
place McCLiixarand pot Baku at the bead of
the army, tte real of their programme ' might
be easily carried ont. i They might then play a
mora decided and successful seoesslon .game
than the myrmidons of Jxrr. Davis.

The Government Financial Scheme.
Secretary Chase's plan lor relief to the treas
ury by a government issue of paper money, be
ginning with $150,000,000, designed to take
tbe place of all other paper money, does not
meet universal favor, If the publio press is an
index of popular sentiment. The apprehension
la felt in financial circles in this olty, and such
must be the feeling in those circles everywhere,
that the proposition cannot be oarrlod into effect
without setioua derangement of the monetary
aad commercial relations of the oountrv. The
mntamniated revolution ia a neat one, and rev
olutions in anything never fail to disturb all tbe
elements related to them. It Is questionable
whether a redemption by the banks of all their
issue within the next six months Is not impossi
ble. There are few of them which have not
their resources a good deal tied up In conse
quence of the financial troubles of the past few
years, ana to compel tnese to ice .nne oi cun
duct croncsed will be to wind them up or break
them op altogether, the Immediate consequences
o wbioa to tbe communities In wblcb tney are
situated are anmrent to every one. As we re
marked TMterdav. It seems to US that the Sec
retary'e scheme should be the last financial re
sort of tbe government to sustain itself aad ex
tinguish the rebellion. : Adopt it now, and, if
the rebellion should not be extinguished by J uly,
at which time tbe relief afforded to tne treas
ure bv the scheme will be exhausted, what will
be the next resort of the government It can
not Issue paper-money Indefinitely. ', An Is
su "beyond $160,000,000 will operate as Infla
tion, ant the inevitable final event would be I
commercial crash such as haa never been known
before. The scheme is, Indeed, surrounded by a
thousand difficulties, and Congress must not be
la hasto to adopt it.-GMejo Time.
! The bankers of the country complain that.
after they have rallied to the relief of the coun
try and loaned their money to Secretary Cbasi,
he turns about and proposes a scheme to blow
tnemnp: ,- , (1 .....
I No fact waa better understood, than that
Secretary Cbasi waa a "well defined" rail-bank,
bird-money man, and that while be had no com
punctions to using banks when in a pinch, be
nevertheless, was at heart opposed to their ex
istence. Hit position is as well understood on
this question, as was John TrLia'aon tbe Bank
of the United Butts, and it may be, that those
who- - warmed him into power may get tbeir nn-
gers burned, as did those who voted for Tip and
Ty without a why or a wherefore. Some good
may yet come of these things. 1
ITbe Cincinnati Timet goes off as follows: ;
Let Mr. Lincoln face the music, and the peo
ple will sustain him; but let bim "apologize"
to the Brltisn lion, and aieenng oi indignation
without a parallel in the world will be the re
sult. Wa are in the midst of a great war, and
have thousands of cowardly politicians in the
North that will embrace this opportunity to in
timidate tbe Government of Mr. Lincoln.
' If these men, who figured so conspicuously
last spring, shall again appear above the waves
and tare to oppose the Federal flag in this dark
and awful hour, let them be seized aa traitors,
tried aa traitors, ttnteneed as traitors, and shot
as traitors! Wo have ever been the advocates
of law and order: bnt there is a point where
forbearance ceases to be a virtue, and that point
is nearly reached.
Will some kind friend in Cincinnati please
grasp the editor of the Times firmly by the
coat tail, before be injures somebody t .
Mr. Vaiaakhohaji has introduced a reeola
tioo es follows! . "
Resolved. As the sense oi this House, that, it
ia the dutv of the President to now firmly main-
tain the stand that taken, approving and adopt'
log the act of Captain Wilkes in spite of any
menace or demand of the British Government;
that this House pledges its full support to bim
In upholding now the honor and indicating the
course of the Government and people of tbe
United States against a foreign power.
Mr. V. endeavored to get a vote on the reso
lution, but the Republicans sent it to a- oom
mittee. There was no nigger in it, and it was
thoorht best not to aeeravate John Bull. ': Who
are "the cowardly politicians in the North?'
We copy the following sensible remarks from
the Louisville Journal Why any rational man
desires to have oar army Worn ont aad broken
down by a' herd of vagabond negroes hanging
en its rear, is mora than we can imagine. . Oar
soldier have trouble and labor enough to pro
ride for their own subsistence, without being
ladened with them? ' " J v
Manv nerso as seem to think that tbe question
aa to tbe treatment of slaves and alavery by onr
armies aa thev penetrate the Southern Lonfed
eracv presents weat difficulty. To onr minds
it nresenta none whatever. We regard the poll
cy to be puisued perfectly obvions. Wc don't
tee how, with intelligent patriots, there can be
any doubt about it.
Sorely the proper course fcr our armies is to
btve nothing to do witn slaves or slavery, i ne
nailer of Gen. Halieck't proclamation Is tbe
wise policy. It Is tbe true one.' Let no slaves
be reduced bv onr armies at all. Let them be
exoladed from our lines. ' Let our military have
nothing to do with tbem. Let slaves and own
ers of slaves take care of their own relations.
Certainly thia is right and expedient. If we
send an army of ten thousand men into tbe
Southern Confederacy, with provisions for tbeir
support, what good reason is mere, wnat good
reason can there be, for our allowing ten thous
and or five thousand slaves to come in and share
the provisions? Why should (key be quartered
on us? Are we to own them? Assuredly not.
Arc we to employ tbem ss servants and pay
tbem? Surely not. - Oar gallant soldiers un
derjtand that they are to take care of them
selves. They are not in want of nigger ser
vants. ' " - - " k
These arc onr views, and they have been thus
far practically sanctioned by tbe Government.
Wc arc more and more encouraged to believe
that tbey will continue to be. Let the Govern
ment accept the plain and effeotual sjluUon of
this question made ty Dlx end Sherman and
Halleck, and let Congress abstain from Inter
fering, and tbe difficulty in the esse will be hap
pily settled.'1" ' ' ' ' " 1 ' -

"The Seminary," one old, dilapidated lavarq-
stand, one grocery that was, but Is, alas! no
more, three dwelling-houses,' one blacksmith
shop, and a stable, a village and have settled
down for a stay, of how long duration the most

At present, wc arc in tentr, or rather what
onoc were tents i and if I mistake not the tern
per of the regiment, in tenia wc will remain, no
matter how much suffering may be occasioned,
rather than aoain build winter quarters.- The
foundation for quarters for one regiment hd
been laid by the 14th Indiana, daring the two
months of their stay in this place, but their
completion was left to ; the 25th, while they
went on to Phillip!, a snug little villsge, within
twelve miles of the railroad, and let up on
their own account, without labor of building or
rent paying. Wo nave one advantage, how
ever, over the summit, and that la the ell
mate. Down here in the valley,) the winters,
as a general thing, are , open, seldom more
than from one-and-a-half to two feet of enow
falling, and that remaining not longer than
from one to two months; while on tbe summit,
the snow lies from three to four feet, and con
tinuea from three to four months without a
"thaw," and accompanied by ; cold eastern
winds. At the pr'jent writing, (he valley is
clear of scow, and the sun shines forth as bright
and beautiful and warm as on a May day
In old Ohio. How long this ''smile ol heaven"
will linger with us, is ss uncertain as betting on
a thoroughbred at a jockey quarter race, and the
boya are making the most of it.
Much dissatisfaction Is felt here in conse
quence oi an order positively prohibiting the
recommendation of furloughs, to either sick or
well, by onr officers. , But few of our. regiment
have, as yet, visited tbeir homes since entering
tbe servioe, and npon those having families at
borne with whom they fondly anticipated spend
ing the coming holidays, this blockade falls moat
heavily. The propriety -and wisdom of i this
prohibition, inasmuch as we have to winter here,
Is questionable, and most undoubtedly adds ma
terially to the dissatisfaction every day maul
Zested toward these high io command In this
division of the great "Anaconda."1 , '
Four companies of the .Thirty-second Ohio
passed here on Friday last, on their way to Bev
erly, where they arc assigned winter quarters.
Thia leaves but one regiment on the summit,
the Ninth Indiana, ' . ; ' .; ' ,.- . . '
Yesterday fire deserters from the rebel pamp
Allegheny, arrived ; under a guard from tbe
Ninth Indiana.' "-They deserted three days since,
and gave themselves bp to our pickets. - Their
report of the condition of the rebel forces, four
thousand In number, ut that esmp, is anything
but flattering to the Confederate cause.'; They
state that the troops sre suffering terribly from
want of provisions and clothing, and that the
cold is intense:. The Georgfaregiment bad
been compelled to return to tbeir native State,
being unable to winter In that latitude; and that
hundreds of Virginians and Tenneeeeeans were
deserting. Tbey express great 'surprise at this
intelligence of onr troops aad wonder bow they
come to "know id much," stating that they
were not allowed to hear anything but lies coin
ed by their offloers, and in all other respects
were treated more like dumb boasts than human
beings. ., When I saw them, they were running
at Urge through the camp, and a happier look-'
ing set of fellows, notwithstanding their rags,
it has seldom been my lot to witness. , They
report ten pieces of ordnance in possession of
tbe forces, and also, that, in their opinion, it
would be an easy matter to make them ,"cbed
addle " from their present position. - Much
sicknets prevails in . their camp. To-day they
are sent on to their homes, with an tteori; all
ef them living near Grafton. -i -
The health of our regiment, considering the
exposure we have undergone, is good, and re
ceives the credit of being the finest and hard
iest regiment in the service. .'

signed and went abroad, and Gen. Patterson Is
still pressing his demands for an Inquiry. It is
denied that he deferred asking an investigation
until after "Scott waa well out of the country,"
as some correspondents would have it appear.
He asked it months ago, asks it yet, and will
ask It till It Is granted. In the delay of the
Government to - near bis prayer, he made the
Philadelphia speech, which has been quoted In
his vindication. His friends claim that he is
one of the best abused men in the country. Let
