The lllaarity Re part f the Comatlttee aa Recoa
In the House of Representatives Tues
day Mr. Rogers, of New Jersey, sub
mitted the views of the minority of the
Reconstruction Committee. It is a
lengthy document, and is signed by Sen
ator Reverdy Johnson and Representa
tives Grider, of Kentucky, and Rogers,
of New Jersey. The minority proceed
fiast to consider what was the effect of
the late insurrection upon the relations
of the States where it prevailed, to the
General Government, and of the people
collectively and individually, of such
States. They contend that the insurrec
tion never legally dissolved the connec
tion between those States and the Gov
ernment. In its nature the Govern
ment is formed of States possessing
equal rights and privileges and powers.
States unequal are not known to the
Constitution. In its original formation
perfect equality was secured. The
equality of rights was the condition of
the original thirteen States before the
Government was formed. In every
State admitted since the Constitution
was adopted, each State is declared "to
be one of the United States, on an equal
looting of all the original States in all
The minority argue at length the sta
tus of the States, and maintained that
when a State is once in the Union she
must abide by it forever. She can nev
er withdraw or be expelled from it.
The majority concede this by submit
ting a Constitutional amendment to
these Southern States the same as to
other States. A different doctrine would
lead to a dissolution of the Union. The
Constitution does not give the power
to subjugate the State, but to suppress
the insurrection within the State, and
thereby preserve the State. The pow
er is Conservative. It is to protect the
State and not destroy it. In referring
to the local governments of the South,
and the charge that the President ille
gally created them, the minority say
that, conceding for the argument's sake
that this was so, does it not follow that
Congress is equally unauthorized to in
terfere? Congress may admit new
States, but a State once admitted ceases
to be in its control aud can never again
be brought within it. Whatever chan
ges her people may make in their Con
stitution, Congress has nothing to do
Iu alluding to representation the min
ority say that the representatives of the
States not insurrection, if the others
were represented, would exceed in the
House (under the present apportion
ment) by a majority of seven-two votes,
and have a decided preponderance in the
Senate. What danger to the Govern
ment,then,can possibly arise from South
ern representation ? Are the Senators
and representatives fearful of them
selves ? Are they apprehensive that K
they might be led to destruction : 1 lie
idea that the country is to be kept in
turmoil, States to be reduced to bond
age, and their rights under the Consti
tution denied and the rights of their citi
zens disregarded, with a view to the
continuance in power of a mere politi
cal p:irty,cannot for a moment be enter
tained without imputing gross dishon
esty of purpose and gross dereliction of
duty to those who entertain it.
The minority claim that there is noth
ing in the evidence taken to show that
this denial of representation should be
made. They have complied with every
requirement of the President, and re
pudiated the Rebel debt. The propos
ed Constitutional amendment is looked
upon by the minority as impolitic. The
amendments 3115; crested have no connec
tion with each other, and each ought to
have been submitted as a seperate arti
cle. In discussing the legal status ot
the local State goverments of the South,
the minority add, in conclusion, that die
majority report states that " they lo
not for a moment impute to President
Johnson any design to extend Executive
power, but cheerfully concede to him
the most patriotic motives;" and we can
hot forbear to say, in concluding, on
that point, that he sins against Tight
and closes his eyes to the course of the
President daring the rebellion,who ven
tures to impeach his patriotism. His
life was constantly in peril, and he
clung to the Union and dicharged all
the obligations it imposed upon him,
even the closer because of th peril, and
now that he has escaped nnharmed, and
by the confidence of the people has had
devolved upon him the executive funct
ions of government, to charge him with
disloyality is either a folly or a sland
er folly in the fool who Injlieves it,
slander in the man of sense, if any sucli
there be, who utters it.
Hovr to Make Good Bread. lam
a farmer's wife, and have been a house
keeper for more than twenty years;
raised a iamily of children, and the
greater part of that time have personally
presided over my household affaire. In
order to have good bread, an indispen
sable ingredient is good yeast. My
mode of making yeast is as follows : To
three pints of water add one handful of
hops, boil well together, strain and put
the liquor into the pot again ; then take
three large-sized potatoes-wash- and
air and graie them, and ;stir into the
iquor wlule boiling ; then add one table
spooufui of salt, one teaiupful of sugar
or molasses, and thicken with a . spoon
ful of flour; pour it out and when cool (
enough, add yeast enough to raise it ; 1
when light, et it in ' ' cOol place for
use. - . ( , -

Pcn-VERiZED Turpentine and its
trsEs.-Some interesting experiments have
been made in the Russian Admirality in
St. Petersburg, on the different uses to
which pulverized turpentine can be ap
plied. With his new lamp" Captain
Spakoffsky producsd a flame twenty
feet long, of six-horse power, and hopes
to reduce the consumption of fuel very
considerably. As by means of the tur
pentine lamp the steam can be raised in
ten minutes, it can, the Captain says, he
advantageously applied to small craft
on short trips, and it is said that several
boats built on this principle will ply on
the Neva during the summer. .

During late years the public have been misled
by large bottles, pretending to give a quart of
Extract of Sarsaparilla for one dollar. Most ot
these have been frauds upon the sick, for they not
only contain little, if any, Sarsaparilla, but often
no curative properties whatever. Hence, bitter
disappointment has followed the use of the vari
ous extracts of Sarsaparilla which flood the mar
ket, until the name itself has become synonymous
with imposition and cheat. Still we call this
compound "Sarsaparilla," and ii tend to supply
6ticti a remedy as shall rescue the name frem the
load of obloquy which rests upon it. We think
we have ground for believing it has virtues which
are Irresistible by the ordinary run of the diseases
it is intended to cure. We can only assure the
sick, that we offer them the best alterative which
we know how to produce, and we have reason to
believe it is by far the most effectual pnritier of
the blood yet discovered by any body.

The N. C. Banking Law.
AN ACT TO ENABLE THE BANKS OF THE
STATE TO CLOSE THEIR BUSINESS.
Whereas, The financial policy of the Federal
Government adopted to maintain the national
credit, with the heavy taxes imposed by that Gov
ernment on the B.nks of the State, makes it ab
aolutely necessary that said Banks should close
lueir business, and renders a further continu mco
of their corporate existence idle and useless to the
people of the State,
Section 1. Be it enacted by the General Assembly
of the State of North-Carolina, and it is hereby
enacted by the autltrity of the same. That if the
Stockholders of any of the Banks chartered by the
General Assembly ot this State b1k.11 be unwilling
to close the busiuess of their Banks by an assign
ment, and are desirous to appropriate all the estate

creditors, and to close it business and surrender
their chartered rights and franchises in conformi
ty with the subsequent provisions of this act,

fects aud rights of action which such Bauk posses
sed, had or held or was vested with, at the time
of tilii.g such bill, and which such Bank could at
that time have lawlully sold, assigned or trans
ferred, including all debts due to such Bank or to
auy person for its use and all liens aud securities
therefor. The court may require such Bauk by
its Cashier or other proper officer to endorse
without recourse, all sueh bills or notes, draw all
Such checks or orders for money aud execute such
other paper writings as the court shall deem ne
cessary or useful to enable the commissioner to

fects of such Bank for the benefit of its creditors.
The commissioner shall have the like remedy to
recover and receive all the estate, debts and effects
i.ciouiug to sueh Bauk at tue time ot tiling its
bill, as such Bank migut have had if no proceed
ings had been had uuder this act ; and should any

missioner shall thereupon be considered as the
plaintiff in the pending proceedings; and, pro
vided, further, that should there be any balance

after the satisfaction of the claims of such credit
ors, the commissioner under the direction of the
court shall distribute and pay the same to and
