f 200 Saved. Rev. John W. Potter, Snow
Hill, N. C, January 6, 1863, says : "For twelve
yrars I was a great sufferer. My liver was dis
eased. I lost my flesh and strength, and my skin
seemed changed in its color by the bile with
which my system was overcharged. I became
subject to frequent and violent attacks of billious
cholic, every attack leaving me weaker than its
predecessor. The physicians had been able to
patch mc up a little, but my health was in a de
plorable state. I ha.l taken patent medicinc3 un
tU I was tired f them. "Without energy or com
fort, I was barely able to go about a little. At
length I yielded to the earnest persuasion of a
friend and commenced taking the HEPATIC
PILLS, with no confidence in them. They acted
like a charm on me. Prom that hour I improved.
I have persevered in their use, until now, by
God's blessing, lam loell and hearty. I had a ne
gro man, who, as I believe, was saved from death
by a dose of these PiUs. : My Doctor's bill was
annually trom $100 to $300, but I have had no use
for a physician since. I can confidently recom
mend them as a superior family medicine." Z

SATURDAY. - - APRII 7, 1866.
We publish to-day in full the procla
mation of the President declaring that
the insurrection is at an end ; and that
henceforth it is settled, as the " sovereign
and important resolution of the national
unity," that no State has gone out of,
or separated itself from, or can go out
of, or separate itself from the federal
Union. It legitimately follows that
civil law has been restored in the States,
and that the States are entitled to be
represented in the common Congress
whenever they shall present acceptable
members to that body. The President
does not undertake to judge of the elec
tions, character, or qualification of mem
bers, but leaves that exclusively to the
The President does not, in so many
words, restore the writ of habeas corpiw,
but this, it seems to us, results inevita
bly from the whole tenor and logic of
the proclamation. "Standing armies,
military occupation, martial law, and
military tribunals," all fall, as it seems
to us, before this important document
The President, it will be observed,
regards the people of the Southern
States as " well and loyally disposed,
and as " acqttiescinff " in the result of
the war. lie does not say they are
" unmistakably loyal," or " devoted to
the Union," or attached to the federal
government. It is true the people are
disposed to be loyal. They were so be
fore the rebellion, but they were deceiv
ed and misled by designing politicians.
They would be loyal now but for the
same politicians and their latter-day al
lies. If these politicians were silenced,
or made to know their places, and if the
great body of the people could be reach
ed aud addressed only by " unmistaka
bly loyal " men, the most marked im
provement would soon be visible, and
the day would not be distant when the
old attachment to the Union would re
vive, and would manifest itself as in for
mer times. The President has repeated
ly said that no man should be appoint
ed or elected to office in the Southern
States who is not thorougly loyal. In
deed, he has gone so far as to say that
all persons appointed or elected should
be such as " have never faltered in their
allegiance to the government." lie has
not changed this opinion. He is willing
to pardon the great body of those who
fomented the rebellion, and who insist
ed on fighting it out to the bitter end,
and to restore to them the protection of
the civil law ; but he is inflexibly op
posed to their taking a leading part
either in Congress or in the affairs of
the States at home. He thinks that be
fore they are received into the church,
they should " bring forth fruits meet
This proclamation is the finishing
step in the work of restoration, so far as
the President is concerned. His duty
has been ably and faithfully discharged.
It has been discharged according to the
Constitution, and in the true spirit of
our republican forms. It now remains
for the Congress to act. What that
action will be no one can foresee. The
probability is that Tennessee will be ad
mitted at an early day ; and that, by
concurrent resolution, the two Houses
will declare that whenever the other
States shall comply with certain condi
tions with respect to loyalty, their mem
bers also will be admitted to their seats.
We do not apprehend, however, that
Congress will attempt to dictate to the
States on the subject of negro suffrage.
We give the following as specimens
of loyalty in this State :
" But the unqualified Union men what of
them, we again ask ? They are either those
wbo, being too cowardly and base to fight,
lay in the woods during the war, or outcasts
from Yankeedom, who have taken up their
abode among us since, to exhume our brave
dead, (hyena like,) and torment and calum
niate the living." Salisbury Banner, April
m, 1866. -
" Mr. Turner, the Democrat says, ' was a
candidate in defiance of the President's proc
lamation.' We did not so read the procla
mation. The people of the district did not
so understand it, and they voted for the man
of their choice. The people of the District
did not believe that any President, or Prince,
or earthly power, has any right to circum
scribe and control their choice. The Presi-
dent has not attempted it, and if he does, he
would most likelv signally fait'.' fflU&oro'
Recorder, April &,1866. - . (; '
':, Both theso papers are supporters of
the administration of Gov. Worthy The
latter, the Recorder, is proverbial for
its moderation, and for the absence from
its columns of every thing like passion or
vituperation. ' 4 '
Andrew Johnson was himself an un
qualified Union, man throughout the
entire rebellion. He - made His last
great speech for the Union in Jones
borough, in May, 1861, and then fled to
save his life. lie spoke on that occa
sion with pistols pointed at him, and at
the imminent hazard of his life. He
returned to Nashville with the federal
armies, and one ot the most touching
appeals we have ever read was made by
him in one of his speeches at that time,
in which he referred to the Union men
slain in the gorges of the mountains,
and of the fact that his home was be
yond the mountains, but he could not
go to it. Such men, says the lianner,
" are not of us."- They are cowards
and outcasts !
One year ago, if any 'one in this City
had even spoken of the war as the re
bellion, his life would have been in dan
ger. It will not be long before it will
be again unfashionable, and then dan
gerous, to speak of the rebellion.
We believe there are two members of
our State Convention, which is to re-assemble
on the third Thursday in May,
who fought in the federal ranks.
The lianner says " our brave dead"
are being " exhumed." This is not so.
No federal officer or soldier ever speaks
unkindly or disrespectfully of the Con
federate dead or the Confederate flag.
But " the Southern heart must be
fired" again and then !
Peace Proclamation by tbe President
THE WAR DECLARED AT AN END.
We publish entire this morning the impor
tant proclamation of the President, restor
ing the authority of the government, and
declaring the political equality of all the
States, a synopsis of which was given in our
last issue :
Ry the President of tlie United States of
Whereas, By proclamation of the 15th
and 19th of April, 1861, the President of the
United States, in virtue of the power vested
in him by the constitution and law s, declared
that the laws of the United States were op
posed, and the execution thereof obstructed,
in the States of South-Carolina, Georgia, Al
abama, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana and
Texas, by combinations too powerful to be
suppressed by the ordinary course of judi
cial proceedings or by the powers vested in
the Marshals by law ;
Asd whereas, By another proclamation,
made on the 16th day of August, in the
same year, in pursuance of an act of Con
gress, approved July 13th, 1861, the inhabi
tants of the States of Georgia, South-Carolina,
Virginia, North-Carolina, Tennessee,
Alabama, Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, Mis
sissippi and Florida, except the inhabitants
of that part of the State of Virginia lying
west of the Alleghany mountains, and to
such other parts of that State, and the other
States before named, as might maintain a
loyal adhesion to the Union and the consti
tution, or might be from time to time, occu
pied and controlled by the forces of the Uni
ted States, engaged in the dispersion of the
insurgents, were declared to be in a state of
insurrection against the United States ;
And whereas, By another proclamation
of the 1st day of July, 1863, issued in pur
suance of an act of Congress, approved June
7th, in the same year, the insurrection was
declared to be still existing in the States
aforesaid, with the exception of certain spe
cified counties in the State of Virginia ;
And whereas. By another proclamation
made on the 2d of April, 1863, in pursuance
of the act of Congress of July 18th, 1861,
the exceptions named in the proclamation of
August 16th, 1861, were revoked, and the
inhabitants of the States of Georgia, South
Carolina, North-Carolina, Tennessee, Ala
bama, Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, Missis
sippi, Florida and Virginia, except the forty-eight
counties of Virginia, designated as
West Virginia, and the ports of New Or
leans, Key West, Port Royal and Beaufort, in
South-Carolina, were declared to be still in a
state of insurrection against the United
And whereas. The House of Represen
tatives on the 22d day of July, 1861, adop
ted a resolution in the words following;
Resolved, by the Mouse of Representatives of
tlie Congress of the United States, That the
present deplorable civil war has been forced
upon the country by the disunionists of the
bouthern States, now in revolt against the
Constitutional Government, and in arms
around the Capital.
That, in this national emergency, Con
gress, banishing all feelings of more passion
or resentment, will recollect only its duty to
the whole country.
That this war is not waged on our part in
any spirit of oppression, nor for any purpose
of conquest or subjugation, nor purpose of
overthrowing or interfering with the rights
or established institutions of these States,
but to maintain and defend the supremacy
of the Constitution, and to preserve the
Union, with all its dignity, equality and
rights of the several States unimpaired. .
And that as soon as those objects are accom-
plished, the war ought to cease.
Atd whereas, i he Senate ot the United
States, on the 25th of July, 1861, adopted a
resolution in the words following, to-wit :
Resolved, That the present deplorable civil
war has been forced upon the country by the
disunionists of the Southern States, now in
revolt agamst the constitutional government,
and injirms around the Capital ; that in this
national emergency, Congress, banishing all
- i i i
ieenng oi mere passion or resentment, win
recollect only its duty to the whole country;
that this war is not prosecuted on our part
in any spirit of oppression, nor for any pur
pose of conquest or subjugation, or purpose
of overthrowing or interfering with the
rights or established institutions of these
States, but to defend and maintain the su
premacy of the Constitution and all laws
made in pursuance thereof, and to preserve
the Union with all the dignity, equality and
rights of the several States unimpaired ;
that, as soon as these obiects aie accomplish
ed, the war ought to cease.
And whereas, These resolutions though
not joint or concurrent in form, are substan
tially identical, and as such may be regarded
as having expressed the sense of Congress
upon the subject to which they relate ;
And whereas, By my proclamation of the
13th day of June last, the insurrection in the
State of Tennessee was declared to have been
suppressed, the authority of the Uuited .
States therein to be undisputed, and such
United States officers as had been duly com
missioned to be in the uninterrupted ' exer

enforced therein by the proper civil authori
ty, State or Federal ; ana the people ot the
said States are well and loyally disposed,
and have conformed or will conform, in their
legislation, to the condition of affairs grow

of the United 8tates, prohibiting slavery

And whereas, In view of the before re
cited premises, it is the manifest determina
tion ot the American people that no state,
of its own will, has the right or power to go
out ot, or separate itseli irom, or be separa

therefore, each State ought to remain and
constitute an integral part of the United

And whereas, Tlie people of the several
before-mentioned States have, in the manner

they acquiesce in this sovereign and impor

And whereas, As it is believed to be a
fundamental principle of government that
people who have revolted, and who have
been overcome and subdued, must be dealt
with so as to induce them, voluntarily, to be

absolute military power or devastated, so as
to prevent them trom ever again doing harm
as enemies, which last named policy is ab

And whereas, The observance of politi

The Fiaal Closing of the War The President's
We publish to-day a Proclamation by the
President, announcing the final closing of
the war, the complete achievement of the
objects for which the war was begun, the
full recognition by the Executive of the
Southern States as part of the Union, the
termination of military jurisdiction in all but
one State of the South, and the restoration
of the writ of habeas corpus. The various
proclamations and enactments by which a
state of war was declared in 1861, are care
fully recited. The whole history of the Ex
ecutive decrees and constitutional provisions
under which the war was subsequently car
ried on is carefully traced. Not a single
material point bearing upon the declared
purpose of either branch of the National
Legislature or of tlie President in carrying
on the war for the Union is left out of ac
count in the recital. And that recital, we
venture to think, leads directly and logically
to the conclusion reached in the proclama
tion that the necessity tor a military occupa
tion of the South has ceased, and that thus
necessity for legislation for the South, under
the war power, is also at an end Texas alone
being an exception for the time.
The interpretation ot the present status of
the South virtually places South Carolma
and New York on the same footing in all
that appertains to their relations to other
States, and to the National Government.
And the Proclamation carries with it thi3
force without the slightest impingement up
on the high prerogative which Congress
holds to determine the rights ot individual
claimants to seats in either branch of that
bod'. It simply announces to the Southern
States that they are once more intrusted
with the maintenance of law and order with
in their own borders and to the world at
large that the unity of the Government is
restored upon a basis consistent with the
rights and immunities of individual States.
In view of our commercial and financial
position, we cannot regard this great execu
tive act without satisfaction. In view even
of the differences which temporarily estrange
a majority in Congress from the President,
the Proclamation will help reasonable men
to find a basis of honorable compromise, and
in view of the possibility of external trouble.
however remote, the act must commend it
self to all patriotic men as one of wisdom.
We believe there is good authority for
stating that the Freedmen's Bureau Act, as
it now exists, will be continued in operation
for one year from the date of this Proclama
tion. No one complains that that act is in, '
operative now. And no one who knows the
character of the high-minded military men
under whose direction it has thus far been
enforced, will fear that it will be allowed to
operate to the prejudice of the freedmen in
the year to come. New York Times.
