"PENALTIES AND GUARANTEES. .
.-iJjCDho New York Tribune construes the
.general tenor of the comment of Southern
papers upon tho questions of amnesty
and suffrage as manifestations of an in
corrigible spirit of rebellion, and argues
that the SoallfGrn pcorlfe'havo not yet
been subdued into a duo appreciation of.
tho condition in which the surrender of
jtbeir armies left them. Their rejection.
iiof the constitutional amendment,- together
with their ' assertion of the paramount
- ngni oi tne otaies to aetermine suuraso
qualifications, and their repugnance to
Federal dictation in that matter, is cited
as proof that they Tiavo not abandoned
their cherished theories of government
-, lnna tno political uleas which have become
apart of their being. Upon these premisps
Jtys argued that tho Southern people
Kave fiJrgotterl'tnatlhere are penalties fpr
rebellion, and urgeuV that. ifhe " loyal"'
I North shall baring them vback to a recol
lection of their duties, by the exaction, of
guarantees an tho imposing of condi
tions which will prevent future rebellions.
4Th,eTnbU'no says '''the Southern people
claim that the South lost nothing by the
robellion but tho object of the rebellion'
UfPhis i; denies, and, in effect, asserts that
rw!)She Southern people lost everything
i'jtheij: rights as States and their rights' as
' individuals; that they arc a conquered
. neonlo. divested of every attribute of free
ftmenfSn'iIyjng passive and helplesst the
mercy of tho General Government. It
Droolaims the result of the war as con
queitfn'the full sense df the term, leav
ing penalties indefinite in character and
degree to the conquered, and rights with.
' out limit to the conquerors.
TI .NowArc dertythat the States' lately in

tho rebellion, as tho Inbune styles it

the ostablishmcnt of aeeparat, enationali
ty was the object They lost that in an
appeal to arms, and nothing else directly.
As.an incident of the .war, the destruc
tion oi donfestib' 'slavery' occurred, aid
the seal of its destruction was, after tjsc
close of the war, ratified by a civil pro
coss f pointed ouv by the Constitution!
(A Saving fhe'direct object and this grand
incident, the Southern States justly Idst
nothing or the.re.qual rights and dignity
as members of the Union, and tho people
lostnojotor-titlcof their right to repre
sentation, their right to. free thought, free
speech and free voting upon cverjr subject
which concerns tho general welfare.
fjTho Government in defeating tho resist
. anco to its authority accomplished all it
. originally proposedt and all it bad' tho
. right to do. War being fiagrantf it had
"'.belligerent powers. Peace being resumed,
the conquering party representing the
. f Government, and the conquered party
y -Twhioh had made resistance to its authori
iirlV,. ipso facie, passed under tho rule of th
1wwConstitution. In that instrument are
,t provided means for amending it, and the
mode of determining the punishment for
" ' treason, but nothing that can bo coh
.' strued to mean that the amending of
thr Constitution shall be made a mode,
of inflicting penalties for beason. There
' is nothing in it that authorizes ihe'pqlit:
caliparty in possession of the Government
tTjiO'domand amendments in tho nature pf
Jt-fi"1-??111008 aJ?iinst treason or rebellion, j
? "If treason and rebellion have bctin com

theCenstitutioninto a system of enhanced
bonc'fits for the victorious party, and pun

"8CFFKAGE AND AMNESTY."
Some ten days ago, meeting with an ar
ticle in the Now York Evening Post ap.
parcntly favoring a settlement of tho
pending differences between tho North
and the South, on the basis of universal
amnesty and universal or impartial suf
frage, we propounded to that paper the
following questions i
"I. What do you mean by the terms 'univcrfal
euffrage and 'impartial suffraee?' And in what
respcer, ii any, ao mey uiacr;
"2. What do you mean by the term 'general
amnesty?' Simply an exemption from arresfand
trial for the 'crime of rebellion?" Dn-fc it -nn-
tcmplato a removal of the restrictions at present
imposed upon a targe proportion t ineBonthern
Ecople by the 'test oaths' now on the statute
ooksT Or, is it designed that theso restrictions
and limitations shall continue?"
To which it evasively replies :
"Wo can only say that plan, as it is now
before the public, appears only in the
rough. Some of those who look with favor
upon it seem to mean partial suffrage; some
even appear to favor unequal suffrage that
is to say, legislation which would let all the
whites and only a few of the blacks vote.
For ourselves, it is known that we favor
general or universal suffrage, and that
without regard to any plan of settlement.
Now that the election is over, the
constitutional amendment, which was the
issue In. the canvass, seems to get the go-by
from! many of those who then most strenu
ously insisted upon it as the one and only
plan of reconstruction. Yet this amend
ment will, if it is adopted, make it the in
terests of all the States, Southern and
Northern alike," to grant impartial and
universal suffrage. Senator Wilson has
said that ifwOuld bring about this policy
in five years, in every Southern State. It
has been repeatedly asserted by its most
zealous friends, during the summer and
fall, that it was sure to be adopted in the
end, as the number of States increases. We
suppose, as this amendment was proposed
and "urged by Congress, that body will
adhere to it."
We regret the want of direct frank
ness in the above. If tho question pro
posed is one material to a final and har
monious understanding between the
parties to the latcciviljconflict it js de
serving of different treatment Tho Post
Bays that tho originators of the proposi

The last paragraph exhibits a phase of
Northern political dealing not calculated
to impress the country favorably as to
tho sincerity of any proposal that may bo
offered as a means of restoration.
The people of this vicinity arc as re
ligious as any community of the same
size in any country, but wc did not see or
hear of much observance of tho day be
foro yesterday as an occasion of "thanks
giving, gratitude and prayer." God is
good, nnd each man's life should give daily
evidence of gratitude for His mercies and
blessings; but man is vile and the devil is
busy, nnd between them they have got
things into such a state that peoplo don't
take readily to .these special secular oc
casions for thanksgiving. They don't see
much religion in tho high places of the
land whence these reverential edicts ema
nate, nnd while there is so little to Tjo
thankful for, the practice is bocoming a
form and sham'that had as well be aban

Tho Chicago Journal, a Radical organ,
must take this view of the matter, for in
its issuo of the 26th of November, it says
in reference to the passage of this "bill :
"The creat charter of constitutional
liberty settled the jurorquestion. Nothing
can be added to or taken away from that
bill of rights touching trial by jury with
out endangering public liberty. The!
'Charter of Liberties' protects every free-'
man from loss of life, liberty or property,
except by the judgement of bis peers or

who takes an unprejudiced view of the
action of the majority in tho Legislature.
