The Amnesty Proclamation.
Johnson's amnesty proclamation, so far as
Jvfmkson Datis is concerned, does not
meet our approval. If issued at all, it
should have been issued just after the war,
elosed.
Mr. Davis, if pardoned at all, should
have been pardoned after conviction, and
not just at the moment that tbe Court was
to pronounce a decision that would set him
free. ,r , 1,1 . . , . v. . , -- 1 . , i
' In the issuing of this amnesty protlama
tion, President Johksom has been made tbe
tool of the men who have scorned and per
secuted blm.i The Radical leaders found
the person ol Jeff. Davis in our courts a
troublesome customer. , No court could be
found to convict him of crime the Chief
Justice, in whose jurisdiction the crimes
for which be was indicted were committed,
we have declared time and time again, dare
not try, and if. tried, dare not convict him.
The doctrine. Davis carried out,' was the
doctrine that-Chief Justice Chase, when
Governor ot Ohio, preached, and for every
act committed by the ex-President of the
Confederate States of the South, a justifl
cation would have been found by tbe law
yers employed to defend Davis, in the
writings, the messages and the speeches of
Chief Ju-tlce Chase. t
Tbe party in power, at the late election
stood pledged to make treason odious. This
could only be done by punishing the ring
leaders of the seeesh movement. The Rad
ical leaders dare not redeem this pledge.
It was made as an appeal to the vindictive
spirit of the country, and they dare not
carry it vxxi. Among all tbe men who par
ticipated in the late gigantic war, not one
has been tried and convicted. Either tbe
laws were powerless to punish, or Judges
were afraid to enforce them.' And-now
the belief Is fixed in the public mind, that
treason, in the shape ot armed resistence
to the Government, is not a crime to be
punished, and this may lead to future re
sistance, war, bloodshed and death.
The making ot treason odious is now
confined, In Its operation, to the punishment
of States which, under our form of gov
ernment, can commit no crime, while upon
the citizen, who can commit treason and
murder, no punishment is or can be in
flicted. ' .. ;, '-
Our objection to the general' amnesty
proclamation is more to the time and the
circumstances under which it was Issued
than to the amnesty itself. We would have
left Mr. Davis in the hands of the law. II
the courts cleared bim of crime or, if the
decision of Chief Justice Chase, that the
14th, so called, amendment to the Constitu
tion inflicted the only punishment that
could be awarded, and left him without fur
ther punishment; should have: bt-en bus.
taiued by a full Court, on the difference
of opinion between Judges Chase and
Umkkwood, then, there would have
been no . necessity for Executive Inter
position. Tbe country had a right, we
think, to demand this, but the Radical
leaders, by means to us unaccountable, per
suaded President Johnson to issue a gen
eral amnesty proclamation, which rids
them and the incoming Administration of
the elephant they had on their hands, and
hlch they could see no other mode of rid
ding themselves.
Tbe proclamation is jp accordance with
the terms of Lei's surrender to Grant,
and should have been issued at that time.
As this was not done, President Johnson
should have left it for his successor.
The Debt and Liabilities of the
Government.
written by United States Treasurer Spin-
k to David Wilder, Esq., ol Boston, In
which be takes ground against the forcing
procss of resumption of specie payment.
Mr. Spinnkr says:
"The Government has of its own over
$550,0000(0 ot outstanding liabilities that
are over due. It it the indorter of the whole
issue of the circulating note of all the nation
al banks, amounting to $300,000,000 more.
Then bear iu mind that these bunks owe
depositors some 9650.000.000 more. Here
you have an aggregate ot $1,600,000,000 of
debts, immediately due, and payable in
coin, for all of which the Government
would have to stand the blunt. The Gov
ernment b-s, say $88,000,000 in gold in i:s
vaults, or about f6 per cent, of this in
debtedness." - .
This letter discloses a state of facts which
gives the reader an inkling of the vast debt,
greater by far than our Radical rulers
have been willing to admit, which op
presses tbe people, and paralyzes their in
dustry. Retire the circulation of the Na
tional Banks, pay off the debt in Green
backs, and It stops the interest and gives
the people a currency adequate to their
wants.
Advocating Principles to Disrupt
the Radical Party.
The New York Times, charged fre
quently within tbe two years past with
not being very friendly to the Radical
party, advocates, as tbe programme for the
new Administration, "the most searching
retrenchment; honesty, efficiency, and
higher character in all connected with the
public service; rigid- guardianship ot the
Trearury against unwise and extravagant
schemes ; a financial policy which shall
maintain our credit untarnished, appreciate
our currency, and place us on the firm
rock of specie payments." ' ' j ,
If this programme be carried out.
Grant's Administration. . within six
months after his induction -to office,
will be the most stupendous of failures.
Honesty and opposition to extravagance.
would set every Radical in the lanl to
howling at Grant, and with it, the charge
of treason to Radicalism would be pre
ferred and sustained. If Grant loves his
ease, he will let the thieves in office, and
those who wish to be in office, have full
swing at tbe Treasury. This is the'only
way he can "let us have peace.".
Betting on Elections.
It is reported that a
formed in the West, which has for its ob
ject the purification of elections, by chal
lenging at the polls every voter who bets
on tbe result. The laws of every State,
it Is believed, disqualify from voting every
person who has laid a wager on the suc
cessful ticket, and yet the, question is
hardly ever put at the poUtthiladelphla
Ledger. .
The Ledger is so generally correct in Its
statements that we are surprised that it
has taken up a popular fallacy as correct.
There are few, If any, of the States of tbe
West whose laws make betting on elections
a loss of suffrage. Even in Ohio, where
such a law was never even proposed, the
belief exists in the minds of many that a
person betting even a small amount on tbe
result of an election,' loses his right to
vote. There is no such a law in tbe stat
ute books, and . there never was and
probably never "will be, for the reason
It would work an injury to thoughtless
persons. In a hard contested election,' a
person willing to lose his own vote that he
could deprive many others of their right,
might make a dozen small bets, and thus
defeat the opponent of bis favorite candi
date of enough votes by challenging the
voters be made wagers with, to secure tbe
election of his favorite.

The Alabama Claims.
LONDON, Dec. 26.
The Times this morning has another
long editorial on tne subject of the Ala
bama claims. The people ol both England
. and America, the Times says, are uneasy
1 in regard to the relations which are to ex
' 1st in future between the two nations.
This uneasiness arises from ignorance of
the true state ol negotiations pending the
Alabama question. The Times believes
Secretary Sewerd himself obstructs senti
ment, but that the Question will be finallv
and amicably adjusted under the incoming
administration of Gen. Grant. Reverdy
Johnson is not likely to be removed by the
new administration, out will be permitted
to remain and. complete the work already
beean. It Mr. Seward seems to delay set

should be removed, but the basis of the

Chinese Government.

Is a blesalcg vouchsafed to few. Even those who
have been favored by nature with strong constitu
tions and rigorous frames are apt to neglect the
precautions necessary to preserve these preoioo, '
endowments. Indeed, as a rule, the more healthy
and robust a man is, the more liberties he is in
clined to take with his ewa physique. It is some
consolation to the naturally weak and feeble to
know that they can be ao invigorated and built up,
by a proper use of the means which science hag
plaeed at their disposal, as to have a much better
ebance of long life and exemptions from disease
and pain, than the most athletie of their fellows
who are foolish enongh to suppose themselves in
vulnerable, and act accordingly. '
