Mercy is a commendable viituc.
Withool it peace in society could never
exist, but like any other good thing,
it may be abused. Just now tho ten
dency of our government, we fear, is to
the abuse of this prerogative.
A very vicious man is arreted for a
known crime. His guilt is beyond
question. He sues for mercy of an out
raged community. His plea is heard.
He, is pardoned. He turns round and
repeals life crime, and the innocent suf
fer. Or, borne one else, emboldened by
his case, and encouraged by the ease
with which he escaped, commits a like
crime, and when brought to trial pleads
the precedent of the other as an argu
ment for mercy in his case. In either
case, who is guilty of the second crime?
Plainly those who exercised mercy to
the one at the expense of the safety of
J.ue criminal may be a murderer. His
life is spared and he is released. Tiie
result is; a good man is murdered one
voflh more than all the murderers in
the world. Where does I he guilt rest?
Without doubt, in an eminent degree
upon those who set the' murderer free
when he ought to have been putmlied.
So with the rebels. Their crimes are
huge and black. They confess their
gailt by seeking pardon. Shall merer
restore them at the expense of the corn
try ? at least to make the country run
the risk of the experiment ? Pardon
without repentance is nowhere required,
either by human or divine command.
It is unwise to forgive without repent
ance, it is unjust also; for it is mercy
to the criminal at the expense of expos
ure of ,the public to a repetition of the
Justice should be tempered with nier
cy;but mercy should not usuip the place
of justice. It is wrong to expose the
ptsaent population or the coming gener
ation' to the machinations of traitors bv
each a stretch of clemency as will make
treason appear a small thing. Better
all. the leading traitors should die or be
banished than that through mercy' to
them one good man should die by a
Itail the leading rebels are pardoned,
and. the impression prevails that men
should not suffer for such crimes, rebel
lion is made easy. The result is evi
dent.' 'Treason will he common.
Our. sympathy is not so much with
criminals as it is with the virtuous upon
wnom iuey prey, uoe "ool man is,
entitled to more consideration than a
hundred criminals. Protect the good
first, and then look after the others.
It is the growing stntiment of the
people that Jeff. Davis will not bo pun
ished, but will be pardoned. Vet the
voice of the people is unequivocally fur
V'e think the sense of the people
should find expression in petitions go
ing ap from every township in the land,
asking that the great leader of the re
bellion be dealt with according to the
demerit of his crimes. Let the Presi
dent know that the people wish to have
'treason made odious,' and traitors pun
ished. . Leading rebels should find that
the .road they travel is 'rough and
thorny and unfit for 'human feet to
The Kebsl States.
We see it stated that Senator Lane
of tills State recently made a speech in
Washington, in which he uttered the
.following sentiment : .
'Whal are we to do with the subdued
-'South? S far as I am concerned, I
will be ready to vote to admit back into
the Union a State that had during the
war a fighting loyal population and
none other. When it can be shown,
clear as the noonday's sun, that there
w a wuue no, i wiuaoiaay mat un-
ue suowo inai mere is a loyal
voting popalatton in the aajority in a
SRftte, and that thej bare the power in
(heir own nana, and can hold tbal,po-
lilical power,'! will vote to admit ihem.
How man; of these States, soldiets
and tailors, had a fighting while basis
daring tli wr"? Arkansas, Tennessee
aad Loni'it'it These three States, in
my opinion, ahuUM be admitted into the
Union at ibe next session, and the olh
rs should be kld back uatil by can
gmiiuti we cm1 hare the guaranty thai
they are poll" ieallr right, and can be
fcept right forever and tvi-r. How long
will it take? So far as I am concerned,
- if it takes thousand centuries they
should BOt come ia until then."
Ja tbe main feature we like llusd re-
aaarks. We are sure tbe loyal ps-pl
of ihe eouatry will endorse them. But
we doubt moat seriously the propriety
of adaitliag the aaenbers of congress
froLoinBd Arkansas. Indeed,
we incline lothe opinion that Louisiana
is not a whit bstter'entilled to such con
sideration than North Carolina, and
that her people, as a whole, are not to
be trusted without further assurance of
loyally. Every act of the people there
recently has tended to weaken rather
than strengthen faith in their loyalty,
and good intentions towards the gov
ernment. The same may be said Trith the ex
ception of the latter charge of Arkan
sas. It is true in both S:ates certain
steps have been taken to place affairs
on a right basis; hut this action has been
taken by a small minority of the people
and is no true test of the feeling of the
entire people of the State. Before any
State is admitted to her forfeited rights
in the Union, a full and clear mnjority
of her citizens should give evidence of
their loyally by explicit acts acts which
must remain in binding force. We do
not believe that either Louisiana or Ar
kansas has yet placed herself right on
the record, so that with certain safety
she enn be leinstated in the Union. It
is just as much as can be dono to stelch
this point to cover Tennessee.
The basis of our, Senator's action in
the premises is not n good one; namely
a "fighting loyal population" unless
that population constituted a majority
of the people the voters. This can
not be said of either Louisiana or Ark
ansas. On ihe contraiy two-thirds or
three-fourths of the population was on
the side of the rebellion, and they are
there yet. Nw after whipping these
rebels in the field, shall we turn round
and place the power in their bauds for
them to subdue their loyal neighbors
and fellow citizens at the ballot box, and,
if they see proper, pass laws unjustly
discriminating against them? Evident
ly such a policy would be 6uicidal in
We all know the bitterness of feeling
existing between the loyal and disloyal
portions of community in tho seceded
States That feeling exists to-day as
much as it did a year ago. It then dis
franchised the friends of the Uuion. If
it could, it would do the same, to-day.
In Louisiona and Arkansas the rebel
element has a majority to-day. If these
Stales are re-instated in the Union, the
very first election that occurs subse
quenlly will put the rebel clement in
power, and they can deprive tho loyal
class of community from holding office
or being heard in legislative halls.
Shall no do this? Never. Let all the
seceded Slates be held under restraints
until .they have demonstrated byRCts
and enactments that they aro to be trust
ed. Let their constitutions be amend-
ed, and the proper safe-guards thrown
around tho rights of all; and let a spirit
in consonance with this new order of
things be manifested and carried out;
and then may we safely restore the rebel
States to a place in the Union; and not
It is not a favor conferred upon a
"fighting loyal population" to put them
in the power of a mnjority of an ami
loyal fighting population, who will
slaughter them at the polls, as they
would have done in the field.on the very
first opportunity; and he who thinks to
do them a favor by such action is a mis
taken friend. Give them time to recruit
their numbers by emigration and other
wise until they are in a majority in their
respective States, and then "go ahead."
In Louisiana and Arkansas the only
show for the security of rights enjoyed
by the loyal minority h the protection
of the general government. Withdraw
that and they are poweiless. In the
States where the population were all
drawn into the vorlt-x of secession,
there is no discrimination of the kind
all are on the same basis, and no evil
of the kind suggested would occur.
Not so with the States where loyally
existed in some force. Hence the need
to guard well this point.
Our Senator should re-consider his
position in so far as to keep all ihe rebel
Slates out until the loyal population aro
in a majority. With tin amendment
position is right, and should be the wb-'l"er tlie official m-intle of Palmers
