The public would like to i.tnw why. this
coin was not invested in Tennessee bonds-
instead of United States Securities at the
outset"? It is well known that the bonds
of our State were then, and have all. along
been, at a less price in the financial mar
kets than those of the United States. By
such an investment we would have been
purchasing our own obligations "with
drawn that much from tbo public market,
thus increasing, the price of those remain
ing, and have been paying interest for the
benefit of our own children. On tlie con
trary, neither the bonds nor currency of
the United States wore, in (he least bene

Tlie demand seems to have been for the

correct? Tho Radical organ of yester

Mr. Trumbull moved to proceed with the
consideration of a bill to repeal the thir
teenth section of an act to suppress insur
rection and punish treason. Said section
provides that tlie President may extend am
nesty to persons who have been engaged in
rebellion, on such conditions as lie may
deem expedient for the public welfare.
Mr. Hendricks reminded the Senator
that the bill to admit Nebraska was pend
ing, and said, having the floor he desired
to finish his argument on that subject, and
several Senators on the Democratic side
desired to speak on this hill.
Mr. Trumbull tlfought the consideration
of this bill might be finished before the
expiration of the morning hour. The mo
tion was agreed to.
Air. juuson was under the impression
that the power referred Io now, resided in
th erreudent. under the constitution.
Mr. Trumbull said, of course thissection
would not repeal the constitution ; its only
eflect was to repeal the 13th section of the
act. The impression was common ia this
country that this bill took away the power
oi merresiueni to grant, paruons; mat. was
erroneous : it was not in the power of Con
gress U lake from him that po.werj these
questions bad been settled years ago by the
Attorney uenerat and taa supreme Uotirt.
Attorney ueneral est. had subsequently
given his opinion to the.effecl, that pardon
was of the offense and not of the convio
tion ; that tlie conviction was no evidence
of the crime.
Air. lrumuuu cued decisions and onin
ions to Sustain his proposition. According
to Gen. Howard's report, the President had
reatored live or six hundred acres of land.
confiscated property, to pardoned Rebels.
J he President certainly had not the power
to restore property, where the rights of
unrd parties nad intervened. The reason
for the advisability of the repeat of this
section was, that It provided for the Presi
dent's issuing proclamations of general am
nesty. Congress could not take from him
the power to grant pardons, hut they could
recau tne powerwnich had been misused in
pardoning and restoring "property, and no
longer continue the" sanction of Congress to
such a course". x '
Mr. Johnspn said the power con (erred by

large as it could make it. Tie sumwsed.
when the power was absolute, it was for the
president to decide on particular cases.
whether in the form of a proclamation or
otherwise. Ueneral Washington granted
amnesty to those engagfd in the whisky
insurrection, arid that authority had never
been questioned. He quoted Hamilton to
show that where there were many con
cerned in an insurrection, they might be
pardoned in sonre general way; that the
power ot pardon should bo as little as ptjsi
Lie fettered or embarrassed.
He quoted Hamilton further in favor of
investigating the power of pardon of the
President ; in some cases it repuired, he
said, the concurrency of Congress. Proc
lamations might be necessary in times when
Uongress was in session, to inliuence imme
diately any insurrection that might exist,
The morning hour having expired, the
Senate proceeded to the consideration of the
order of the day, which was the bill for the
.1 r! . f -VT-I i i
aumiasion oi icurasKa as a stale.
Mr. .Hendricks then resumed the flor,
and spoke in opposition to the bill. Ho re
plied briefly to Mr. Wade. He said he
would regard this bill, if passed, as a pre
cedent ; and as any State admitted into the
United btates had a right to come ity with
out regard to her institutions, or nnv other
considerations not contained in the: consti
tution. He said that in many respects the
enabling act had not been complied with,
so, as asserted by Mr. Sherman, no provis
ions of a State Constitution had been framed
by a convention of the people. . This rcon
stitution had been formed by the Legisla
ture, and therefore was without legal ail
thority, and the people had not even rati
fied that action.
He contended that if Nebraska had
the requisite population, the vote onp-ht to
have been as high as twenty thousand, but
oniy y,diJ persons had voted for the con
stitution; be did not, believe there-were
eighty-eight thousand persons in the terri
tory; he did not be!eve there were, over for-
ty-Uve thousand; on that ground then alone
of insufficient population ho would vote
against the bill. He thought he would not
be influenced by the fact of Republican re
presentatives being returned in regard to

Neav Obleaks, Dec. 15 The Timts'
City of Mexico correspondence of the 29th
nit., says alaximiiian never -intended leav
ing, and only went to Orizaba forhis health.
He was-then'at Puebla. and 'all classes of
.Mexicans areipreparing to support him
when the French troops leave. "
Washington, lec lu. Private advices
received in this city stale that Maximilian
will not accept the proposition to retain Ids
power in Mexico. He will only stay long
enouch to make a show of pa.simr the gov
ernment over to other hands, and leave the
len tnousand trench troops nave left
that country and fifteen thousand remain to
embark during the winter and spring.
There is good authority for saying that fear
of sickness in the Mexican seaport towns
alone induced Napoleon to postpone the
shipmenLof troops nntil ihe winter month?.
it is also denied that there was ever any
agreement with this government that the
troops should be removed at a specified
time. It was only the voluntary declara
tion on the part of France of her intention
and purpose to recall her troops. Ariy
agreement in relation thereto was with
Maximilian, and not with the United
NzW'YoEKfDeeJlG. The Patria. of the
City, of Mexico, makes serious charges
againsf the Now York iKKtofBce. It as
serts that certain official documents which
left that city on September 29, and subse
quently printed in the New York papers,
were procured through tho New York office
by dishonest means, and were oot captured
on Mexican soil, as represented by tbe
journals which gave them publicity. It ar
rives at these conclusions after the matter
has been officially investigated.
letter from Chihuahua says the Libe
rals of Mexico have no desire for the United
States to assume a protectorate over that
country, and any attempt to introduce
armed bodies would be strongly opposed by
the Juarez government.

of these amendments was fair, which al
lowed to some States a large representation
based on a non-yoting population, tfliile it
denied it to others? Wa3 it just to give
New York this right while-it was denied to
Georgia? He had asked this question list
session and had not been answered. Mr.
AV'ade said he understood there, was no dis
tinction between States in that respect at
all events those States that had lost their
rights by rebellion.
Mr. Hendricks road the section referred
to of the amendment, and said it .left to the
.Northern btates their representatives based
on the non-voting population. The Nortb-
ern States had fifteen to twenty such rep
resentatives. u.ne'j..negrp -, was i nqw a

States likewise? He believed the doctrine
announced by Mr. "Wade; that States
should be admitted on terma of equality
