THE EVENT OF 1868.
Andrew Johnson's Proclamation Fall
Amnesty and Pardon.
The Death Knell of Military Despotism
in the South.
By the President of the United States A Froclama
Washington, July 3. Whbrkas, In
the month of July, A. D. 1861, in accept
ing the condition of civil war, which was
brought about by insurrection and rebel
lion in several of the States which consti
tuted the United States, the two Houses of
Congrees did solemnly declare that war
was not waged on the part of the Govern
ment in any spirit of oppression, nor for
any purpose of conquest or subjugation,
nor for any purpose of overthrowing or in
terfering with the rights or established in
stitutions of the Slates, but to defend and
maintain the supremacy of the Constitu
tion of the United States, and to preserve
the Union, with all the dignity, equality
and rights of the several States unimpaired
and that as soon as these objects should be
accomplished, the war on the part of the
Government should cease, and,
Whereas, The President of the United
States has heretofore, in the spirit of that
declaration, and with a view of securing
for it the ultimate and complete effect, set
forth several proclamations, offering am
nesty and pardon to persons who had been
or were concerned in the affurenamed re
bellion, which proclamations, however,
were attended with prudential reservation
and exceptions thee deemed necessary and
proper, and which proclamations were res
pectively issued on the 8th day of Decem
ber, 1860; on the 26th day of March, 1864;
on the 29th day of May, 1865, and on 7th
day of September, 1867; and,
Wheras, The said lamentable civil war
has long since altogether ceased with an
acknowledgement by all the States of the
supremacy cf the Federal Constitution and
of the Government, therefore there no lon
ger exists an reasonable ground to ap
prehend a renewal of the said civil war, or
aDy foreign interference, or any unlawful
resistance by ary portion of the people of
any of the States to the Constitution and
laws of the United States ; and,
Wkerzas, It is desirable to reduoe the
standing army and to bring to speedy ter
mination of military occupation, martial
law, military tribunals, abridgement of the
freedom of speech and the press, suspen
sion of the privilege of habeas corpus, and
Othe righls of trial by jury, and encroach
ment upon our free institutions in time of
peace, being dangerous to public liberty,
incompatible with the individual rights of
the citizens, contrary to the genius and
spirit of our republican form of govern
ment, and the exhaustion of the national
resources ; and,
Whereas, It is belived thai amnesty
and pardon will tend to secure a complete
and universal establishment and prevalence
of municipal law and ordr, in conformity
with the Constitution of the United States,
and to remove all appearances and presump
tions of retaliatory or vindictive policy on
the part of the Government, attended by
unnecessary disqualification, pains, penal
ties, confiscations and disfranchisements,
and on the contrary to promote and pro
cure complete fraternal reconciliation
among the whole people, with due submis
sion to the Constitution and laws.
Now, therefore be it knowD, that I, An
drew Johnson, President of the United
States, do, by virtue of the Constitution
and in the name of the people of the Uni
ted States, hereby proclaim and declare,
unconditional and without reservation, to
all and to every person who, directly or
indirectly, participated in the late insur
rection or rebellion, excepting such persons
& may, under presentiment or indictment
in any court of the United States having
comnatent iuriadiction UDon a charge of
treason or other felony, a fall pardon and
X t x -
amnesty for the offense of treason against
the United States, or of adhering to her
enemies during the late war, with a resto
ration of all rights of property except as to
slaves, and except also as to any property
of which any person may have been legally
divested under the laws of the United
States. Ia testimony whereof I have sign
ed these presents with my hand, and caus
ed the seal of the United Slates to be here
Done at the City of Washington, the 4th
day of July, in the year of our Lord, one
thousand eight hundred and sixty-eight of
the Independence of the United States of
America, the ninety third.
Signed. Andrew Jonssow.

Newspaper Patronage. 1
Many long, weary years of experience in
the newspaper business has forced the con
viction upon us that newspaper patronage
is a word of many definitions, and that a
great majority of mankind are either
ignorant of the correct definition, or
are dishonest in a 6trict bibliaal sense of
the word. Newspaper patronage is com
posed of a3 many colors as the rainbow,
and is as changeable as a chameleon.
One man comes in and subscribes for a
paper and pays for it in advanco, and goes
home and reads it with the proud satisfac
tion that it is his. He bands in his adver
tisement ; asks the price, pays for it and
returns to his place of business, and reaps
the advantage thereof. This is newspaper
Another man says "you may put my
name on your books," and goes off without
saying a word about pcy. Time passes
on, and you want money, and ask him to
pay what i i honestly due you. He flies in
to a passion, perhaps pays, perhaps not,
and orders his paper stopped. This is cal
led newspaper patronage.
Another man has been a subscriber for a
very long lime,Jbut lias never paid a cent,
asd at last becomes tired of vou and wants
a change. He thinks he vr ants a city pa
per. He tells the postmaster he don't want
it, and you will get a paper marked "re
fused." He will call and pay you af
ter -a-while, he says. But he never does
unless you rue him. And this, too, is cal
led newspaper patronage.
Another brings in a fifty cent advertise
ment and wants a two dollar notice given
it, and if you refuse, he goes off mad. And
this is called newspaper patronage.
Another man lives near who does not
like the editor the paper is too small for
him yet he goes regularly to his neigh
bor's asd reads it, and finds fault with it,
and quarrels with the opinion of the editor. I
Occasionally he sees an article he likes,
and begs or gives half a dims for the num
ber. This is called newpager patronage.
Another man takes two or three city pa
pers and cannot affo:d to take a home pa
per, but he likes it, and comes into the ol-
fice and begs one when he is in town. This
also, is called newspaper patroiiae,
Another man takes a paper, he takes a
copy for himself and family, and pays for
it, and does all he can to get new subscri
bers he never grumbles, but alwaja has a
cheerful word for the editor. If any item
of interest occurs in his neighborhood, Le
informs the editor.- This is newspaper
Another man has a patent, and wants you
to give it a two dollar notice every week ;
"it will be of interest to your readers," he
says, but although knowing it will benefit
him most of all, he does not offer to pay
for it. This is called newspaper patron-
Another man has taken the paper for sev
eral years but has not paid for it, and come3
in with a four or five dollar advertisement,
and aeks you to insert it for oothing, be
cause he is an old patron of yours. This
is called newspaper patronage.
Another man a young man about town
no use of his taking a paper, he knows
all that is going on. By-and-by, he gets
married, and hands io a notice with "just
hand me a dozen copies." He gets them,
and when you mention pay he looks sur
prised "you surely do not charge for such
things?" And this is called newspaper
Another man (bless you, it does us good
to see such men) comes in and says, "the
year for which I paid is about to expire, I
want to pay for another." He does it and
retires. This is newspaper patronage.
Now, is'nt newspaper patronage a curi
ous thing ? And in that great dy when
the gentleman in blaok gets his due as he
surely will how many of the patrons enu
merated above will fall to his 6hare ? Now,
it will be seen that while certain kinds of
patronage is the very life and existence of
a newspaper, there are other kinds of pa
tronage that is more destructive than the
Reader ! where do you stand ?
The agricultural statistics of Ireland
show a decrease of 64,287 acres in the land
under cultivation. There are 48,000 acres
less in potatoes, 39,000 less of oats, and
38,000 less of wheat, while there has been
an increase in grass of 56,000 seres. The
emigration from Ireland in 1867 was 25
per cent, less than in 1866.

The negro is now supreme every where
in the South. The race, by a system of
treachery, has got possession of Washing
ton city, the Capitol of the United States,
and they will no doubt rule it as they
please. The history of the late election for
Mayor, according to an intelligent corres
pondent, is this :
The Radicals admit that the Democrats
had a majority of the votes polled ; but
there were forty soldiers stationed at Wash
ington who voted the Democratic ticket.
On these votes being thrown out, the Rad
icals have the majority. Judge Carter, the
corrupt Radical Judge of Washington City,
decided that the soldiers had a legal right
to vote, and to get clear of the difficulty he
requested Gen. Grant to issue to-order that
no 6oldier should leave his barracks on
election day. Grant refused to do so be
cause it will not be long before he will want
the votes of the soldiers himself. The ne
groes poured in from Virginia and Mary
land to vote in the Mayor's election. They
still failed to carry it until the votes of the
soldiers were thiown out. So it has been
settled in Washington City, which is im
mediately under the government of Con
gress, that any negro may vote, but no sol
dier, no boy in blue, can. So we go. Hur

terday evening, jast after dark, the sexton
oi one of the most fashionable charohes of
the city was engaged in sweeping out the
building, and the doors were left open.
While this work was going on one of the
boys in question came along, and, feeling
fatigued from his tramp through the hot
and dusty streets, seated himself upon the'
steps of the church and was soon fast
asleep, with his lighted transparency lean
ing against the door post. And everybody
who passed that way within the next hour
or so vras assured by the transparency, in
fiery letters that could be read at the dis

As a man was walking in his garden he
discovered two clothes horses. He look
them in bit stable, where he soon broke
them. He then put the yolk of an egg on
their necks, attached them to a cart with
the bonds of friendship, and covered them
with sheet-lightning to protect them from

upon the eeat of government, took the whip
of a top in one hand and the reigns of sev
eral kings in the other, and drove off, pass
ing through the gate of buffalo, over the
ground coffee for three miles, but in cross

"The troops will not bs withdrawn from
Arkansas, or any other restored State, at

aid tha civil authorities, but will not unless

of Gen. Grant that tha people themselves
