The Restoration of Law and Order in
Slowly and tediously, yet surely, are
law and order being once mnre restored to
the afflicted S mth. The sudden collapse
of the Coi-federacv the sudden end of!
Military law left the states lately in re -
bellion in a coudition little better than
anarchy itself. The people were left with
out laws, and without officers to enforce
nuch had they been on the statute books.
The downfall of rebel power was sudden
and complete. Fiom tha might of a
great lion it fell quickly to the weakness
of a cooing dove. A powerful Confeder
acy nojrer''ul in extent, resources, popu
ZcZ, staterrcen, generals, armjos dis
solved like ft snow drift in April sunshine.
To begin tbe work of dissolution, Gen.
Lsa uncovered tbe rebel capital, an,d after
few d-ays of fitful struggle, yielded him
. self a prisoner of war, and surrendered
his army all that was left of it after
Grant had foughi it out to the end of the
line. Following soon after this came the
surrender of Johnston's army ; then the
capture of Da vis himself, " the Presi
dent," with various high officials of his
"Government;'' then the surrender of
the armies of Dick Taylor and Kirby
Smith ; and following these, a general
surrender of members of the rebel Con
gress, members of rebel Legislatures, of
ficers of the rebel army, aud Governors
. of rebel states- And thus were the peo-
pie of the South left in a condition of real
acarchy.whose terrors were increased by
Certain aggravating causes and circum
stances, such as the freedom of the for
mer slaves, the disbanding of rebel ar
mies, the soldiers of which resorted to
theft, plunder and murder, the union in
- society of those who h id fought in the
rebel army with those who had cherished
a lingering love for the Uuion all these
things united to unsettle the S'uth and
leave it in chaos and anarchy. The work
of restoring law and order among such a
population reconstruction, as it is called
was second in it, difficulty, importance I
and responsibilit3', only to that of subdu
ing the armed rebellion.
What added immensely to the difficulty
cf restoring ordir, was, that while the
rebels admitted their defeat under over-
wuoming uuuioer, u.ey ulu ,.ot i
t.. u.-ii !

that the cause of the South was just, and
that the Union only triump d through su
perior force, and not through the justness
of its cause. Arrant rebels, whose hands
were red in the blood of the rebellion,
audaciously claimed the rghts of citizeo
sbipVhich they had so criminally forfeit
ed. They claimed the right to vote ; they
claimed the possession of all their former
property; they denied the lawfulness of
confiscation and the validity of the eman
cipation proclamation; they affirmed anew
their belief in the doctrine of state rights,
and other Southern! heresies. They went
farther than language, and sought by acts
to perpetuate' their reign. They still de
fied the Government of the United States;
they still hunted and persecuted loyal
men ; and, worse than all, they endeavor
ed to re-oppress and re-enslave the freed
men. In Virginii,for example, only reb
els came forward to control the state. Af
fairs were similar iu other states, and,
taking all things in connection, the restor
ation of order in the South was one of
the most difficult ptoblems of statesman
ship ever presented for solution. But
Andrew Johnson is grappling with the
great issues and duties of the day in a
manner which gives assurance to the
country that the South will in time be
under the reign of law and order. It
seems to be the policy of the Government
to keep in each state formerly in rebellion
a military force suSLietit to execute all the
orders of the civil officers. Provisional
Governors are being appointed, from men
known to have been loyal during the war,
who are to be sustained by the military
forces if need be. This system of gov
ernment will doubtless be continued in
each state, until a sufficient number of the
people thereof arsert their willingness to
be loyal and prove their ability to preserve
order and enforce the laws. It is for the
prople of the South themselves to say
how long they shall be under the ban of
the military power. By ceasing to be
" rebels in principle, by a henriy and earn
est endeavor to support the Uuion and
maintnin all the laws of the Government,
by eviccing a disposition to be loyal and
Jaw. abiding, peaceful andindu'-trious.they
can-again resume the rTponibilitirs and
prerogatives of governing their respective
states. But vre nee3 Dot expect the tran
sition from rebellion to loyalty to be very
sudJen or complete fi?a long time to
co.ne. These whose Tirt3 are dripping

Notes Third Series of 7-30s Now
The demand for the Second Series of the
Notes was so great that the Treasury
Department was unable to print tleaa with
sufficient rapidity to fill the orders. It
will be remembered that a bundrel mil
lions were subscribed and paid for in a
single week. The priuting presses have
finally surmounted the difficulty, and ou
Wednesday, June 7th, the deliveries of
the Third Series commenced, which will
be continued with the same promptness
that marked tha supply of the Dotes of
the first acd second serie". It has been
this interruption of delivery at the time of
subscription which has given an appear
ance of a falling off in the popular taking
of the loan, the great body of small ta
kers being unwilling to pay their money
unless they receive their notes right in
haul, to carry them home. It is expected
that after this week the daily subscriptions
to the Seven-Thirties will run up into
milli ms,' as they will undoubtedly be stim
ulated by the opening of the farmers' wool
markets East and West. It is not ut all
likely that the Government will ever again
offer so de;drab!e a security as these no'e,
and about two hundred millions only re
main to be taken.
With the close of the war the national
m b(J va3ll reduced, an,l in.
vestors must look for a sharp reduction in
the rate of interest as soon as the present
loans become due and can be paid off.
There is no reason why the Uoitcd States
credit fur money should ever again fall
below its credit for courage. The same
spirit that preserved the geographical in
tegrity of the country will placeits pecu
niary integrity on a par with that of the
most favored nations aud that will repre
sent a rate of interest under rather than
over four .per cent.
Vallandigham on the Democracy.
Vallandigham has suddenly re-appeared
a letter addressed to the Democratic
of Lincaster, Pennsylvania, in
which he say, cf what he calls the Demo
cratic party :
"Without more rf conrnge, more vigor,
more audacity, if you please, in grappling
with great questions us in former years,
the Democratic party cannot, ought not to
survive, anJ must give way to some other
and more vital organization. If it is to
remain in its present comatose state, at
now the beginning of a new epoch in pub
lic affairs, it were far better tliat it should
buried out of sight at once. Certainly
do not advise that it shall move without
occasion, and waste its buprrfluons vigor
upon the air. "Rightly to be greit is,
not to stir without great argument;" and
may be months before policies and is
sues are sufficiently defined to require it to
act at ail. But the rep -se of conscious
power and the lethargy of threatened dis
solution are very differuut thinjrs."
Certainly ! Let it be "buried ont of
sight at once." The people desire its ab
sence much more than they do its com
pany. About thirteen hundred relumed sol
diers were entertained with a picnic and

HEADQUARTERS 74TH REGIMENT OHIO
VETERAN VOLUNTEER INFANTRY,
NEAR WASHINGTON, D. C.,
June 5th, 1865.
According to notice previously given,
the qualified voten of the 74th 0. V. V.
I., met in convention fjr the purpose of
choosing a delegate to represent them in
the Convention to be held in Columbus,
Ohio, on the 21at inst., to nominate can
didates for the different State offices to te
filled at the next fall election.
On motion of Chaplain McFarland,
Lieut. Col. Fifld'ey waschosen Chairman,
and Capt. V. T. Drummond, Secretary.
Col. FindVy stated in a few words the ob
ject rf the meeting, after which Chaplain
McFarland rad the following preamble
and resolutions which were taken up ser
iatim, and unanimously adopted:
Whereas, The officers and enlisted
men of the 74th 0. V. V. I. are now as
sembled to elect one of their number to
. . 1
represent them in the Convent.on to be
held in Columbus, Ohio, on the 21st inst,
the purpose of nominating a candi-
date for the responsible office of State
Governor; and whereas, it is fitting and
proper that they should give public ex
pression to their views in reference to
matters that deep'y concern them as sol
diers expecting soon to be citizens: there
fore, Resolved, lt. That as our R.-giment
voted almost unanimously for the present
.incumbent of the gubernatorial chir, we
have been almost unanimously disappoin
ted in the manner and spirit jn which he
has officially acted toward the troops in
the field that e:pecially in organizing
new regiments to make offices for civil
ians who never heard the crack of a hostile
gun, while he left old regimeutsthat were
inured to all the hardships and dangers
of battle to become so depleted that few
if any promotions could be given to sol
diers who had earned them by long en
durance, faithful service, and brave deeds,
and in consolidating old regiments
against their will, taking from them in
some instances the loved name and ban.
ner.s under which they had marched in
triumph from Columbus to the Sea,
that in these things especially we regard
him as having caused great injustice to be
done to the old soldiers.
2nd. That while such men as Gov.
Morton and Gov. Curtin have b-en ever
zealous in looking after the interest of their
troops, our Governor has seemed to us to
manifest a general spirit of carelessness
and indifference ia regard to the m.iuor
interests of his troops, and therefore
does not deserve their confidence or sup
port. 3rd. That our delegate be and here
by is'instructed to vote for General Cox,,
Samuel Galloway, or any other loyal, com
petent, decent man, in preference to the
4th. That we stand by the old flag,now
and ever pledging undying fealty to the
Government, Constitution, laws, and liber
ty represented by the flag, under which,
and fe-r which,wehave fought during these
four bloody years.
5th. That while from the d.pts of our
hearts we mourn the loss of our late g'lod
and great President, we have full faith in
his successor, Andrew Johnson, and we
wiil stand by him in the great, d ictrines
and policy which he has laid down, be
lieving with him that " treason is a crime,
and must be punished " to the full extent
of the law. We believe that we have
not, during all these years of battle and
death, risked our lives and everything
dear on earth for mere fuu and jest not
left the bones of tens of thousands of
our brothers on a hundred battle fields

On the day of the receipt of the capitulation

Military Governors for the South—
New York, June 13. The Times'
Washington special says a strong feel
ing is finding expression among many
leading men here, in favor of the poli
cy of appointing Military Governors
fur' some of the extreme Southern
States, as far as South Carolina, Geor
gia, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi,
and of keeping these States under
strict military control until the people
are once more thoroughly returned to
their avocations, and the labor status
of freedmen properly adjusted with
their late masters. The efforts of the
delegations from these quarters are
not meeting with much encouragement.
There are several prominent Generals,
with fine executive abilities and cool
heads, who can now be spared to set
tle the disturbed affairs of these
The New York Tribune says : "If
we give the negro a bayonet, why
can we not give him a ballot If he
gives his life to save the couutry,
should we not give him a voice in its
management? If fourmillions of ne
groes are to remain in serfdom, what
guarantee have we that the haugty
whites will not give us an other Re
bellion before we are permitted to ele
vate the race? It has taken four
yer.rs of death and debt to open the
door that debaired the negro from
civilization ; shall the door be closed
before the race is on the right side of
the pale? "Don't elevate the negro,"
cries the Copperhead. " Don't de
grade the negro," say we. It is not
elevation to give a man his rights,
the right to live and work and obtain
knowledge, to worship God and die
in peace. It is degradation to say to
any one man, or any one class of men,
that the opportunities given to others
shall not be given to them ; that the
man of dark tinge and his children,
no matter how honest, industrious,
gifted or true, must remain forever on
tha borders of the promise land, while
others live on the milk and honey.
When will our people learn to do right?
When shall we see and know that God's
commandments are written on imper
ishable tablets, and that unless we
walk according to their teachings our
way is full of danger and sin ?

We learn through an army officer
