plain case, but liefore I examine it, let us re
tVr to the Louisiana case. The President is
held responsible for the Louisiana massacre,
because ho held Louisiana under military
control. The excuse for that is that Louisi
ana was one of the States in rebellion, and
Congress had not restored it to its original
normal condition. To my mind, the Presi
dent's military action in Louisiana is conclu
sive against his whole theory of reconstruc
tion. If Louisiana is a State, he has.no
riht of military interference. But that
question is not now important ; for the pub
lic will settle it. The case of Maryland and
Missouri is important, for we may be hur
ried into bloodshed before we know it. Now
observe two facts : 1 Maryland and Missouri
never did secede, and were never Confeder
ate States. 2. The President has proclaimed
the war ended and peace restored. There
fore. Maryland and Missouri are no moresuh
jects of martial law than are Ohio and Indi
ana. I should like to itfcow - Tu lmt - would, hfc.
said to a President of the United States who
should declare Cincinnati-' and Indianapolis
under martial law, because a Board of Po
lice Comu issionsrs acted illegally f I don't
think he will do it in a hurry unless he con its
the fate of C has. Stuart ; ami I don't think
he will try it in Missouri, unless he is pre
pared to see his officers run faster than our
men did at Bull Run. I assume that we are
now at peace. If we are, then we must be
governed by the Constitution and laws.
AVhat power docs the Constitution and laws
give the President to interfere by military
force with State laws ? The Constitution
has three paragraphs only relating to this
1. The President is made Commander-in-Chief
of the Army and Navy of the United
States. In war this is an almost illimitable
power, because the objects of war may make
it necessary to declare martial law in any
place whatever. But I assume that we are
at peace, and in peace no such power exists.
2. Congress has power to declare war, and
to call out the militia to " execute the laws
of the Union, xujrjrem insurrection, and repel
intasium,"1 Under this power they have a
right to declare when, and in what manner
the army and the militia may be employed
for this purpose. Accordingly, laws have
been enacted directing the mode in which
the milftary force shall be employed to sup
press insurrection or repel invasion.
3. Section 4, Article 4. The United States
guarantees each State a republican form of
government ; and " on application of the
Legislature, or of the Executive," (when the
Legislature cannot be convened,) against do
Now, observe that this case does not occur
till there is domestic volence, and that the
Governor cannot constitutionally call for that
assistance if the Legislature can be called to
gether. Mark, for it is all important, the
power of the Governor to call for this assis
tance does no occur in a mere recess of the
Legislature ; but only when the Legislature
cannot be convened. Now, it is perfectly
notorious that the Legislature of Slaryland
can be convened in twenty-four hours, and
therefore the Governor has no right to call
for assistance, nor the President to give it,
till the Legislature of Maryland is convened.
If there be found insurrection, or invasion,
then the President can interfere, under the
T."nited States laws, as Mr. Lincoln did. But
the only case which can occur in Baltimore
is that of domestic resistance, and the Presi
dent has no right to interfere till the Legis
lature of Maryland calls tor it. This is the
whole case. But, will there be violence
Not unless the Governor makes it. He is
the only man who wants to make violence. I
take it the Mayor, Council, and Police Com
missioners of Baltimore have too much sense
to commit any violence for the benefit of
their enemies. They have the power in their
own hands, and they should keep it and use
it discreetly. The object in view is to keep
rebels from voting, which, by the laws of
Maryland, they have no right to do. This is
the gist of the whole matter. Practically,
so far as the Governor or President act on
the question they act on the rebel side. Ev
ery intelligent man understands this, and
it seems to me it is little less than madness
for mere executive officers to defy the pub
lic opinion of the country.
The verdict of the people is that rebels
shall not exercise power, and is there any
man so stupid as not to see it ? The war
commenced in the streets of Baltimore, and
jt may end there. It will be wise in the Pres
ident to adhere to the very letter of the Con
stitution and the laws. It will be still wise,
the Governor of Maryland not to provoke
the wrath of the loyal people. I affirm again,
there is no constitutional power in the Pres
ident to interfere with Maryland officers and
elections, till the Legislature of Maryland
calls for such interference.
You observe that I have not touched at all
?pon the legality or illegality of the proceed
JPS3 in the case of the Police Commissioners.
That is a civil question, to be determined by
civil law. If the Governor decides to turn
them out, and they .won't go, he has the writ
t w warranto and the modes of legal pro
cedure. Why should he go to the President
help ? And what has the President got
to do with a civil question about officers in
Maryland ? And what has Gen. Canby got
do with martial law in Baltimore till the
J resident is legally called upon for assis
tance ? The men now in executive power
nold it by a frail tenure, and they should re
member the fate of Phaeton, when heat
tempted to drive the Chariot of the Sun.

A' Singular Case- ot. Pocket.Pickinz r.
1 Virginia Clergyman. Arretted on a Charge
vj jTiucinga jjaayt JtWcetrHa Surrender
hit Plunder and it Locked ; ! :'
Ope of the most remarkable cases' of pocket-picking
that has ever come to the knowl
edge of the Police authorities 1 occurred yes
terday afternoon, in a Broadway stage. It
appers that about 3'oclock Mrs. Bloomfield
H. Moore, of No. 1,718 Walnut street, Philar
delphia, entered a Fifth avenue stage at
Fourteenth street, on her way down town.
Soon after a clerical-looking gentleman en
tered the stage and seated himself close be
side Mrs. Moore, although there was a abun
dant room on the other side of the vehicle.
This was not noticed at the time, howew
as the stranger was of so Irespectable an ap
pearance. As the stage proceeded down Broadway,
Mrs. Moore noticed a lady sitting opposite
her making sundry gestures, as though she
wished to attract her attention. Although
Mrs. Moore thought this conduct very sinni
lar, she paid no attention to it, however, and
it was not until the clerical passenger had
hastily left the stage that she became aWare
of the motive of the other lady, for the lat
ter exclaimed : " Madam,-that man has pick
ed your pocket." One of the male passen
gers immediately sprang from the stage and
overtook the fugitive. The latter broke away
and attempted to escape, but was a second
time secured. Mrs. Moore then accused him
of having stole her pocket-book, containing
$28, when the man produced the property
and gave it back to the owner, imploring
her not to give hiin in custody of an officer.
Quite a crowd had by this time collected in
the vicinity, which attracted the attention of
Roundsman Dclematcr, who, on reaching the
sceue, arrested the pickpocket and escorted
him to Police Headquarters. On reaching
the Inspector's office, Mr. Carpenter was in
formed of the circumstances attending the
case by both Mrs. Moore and the officer.
The prisoner stated that he was Rev. G. T.
Williams, and the Rector of the Episcopal
Church at Suffolk, Sussex Co., Va., about 20
miles from Petersburg, near the Nottaway
River. He claimed that he had found the
pocket-book claimed by Mrs. Moore on the
seat between the lady and himself, and that
he only took possession of the wallet for the
purpose of advertising for an owner. This
ingenious statement caused a broad smile
upon the face of the veteran Inspector, who
quietly informed the prisoner that he did
not believe a word of it. Oa the person of
Williams was found about $60 in greenbacks
and a letter, of which the following is a copy :
Richmond, Oct. 30, 1S60.
The Rev. Geo. T. Williams is Reetorofthe
Church at Suffolk, with this he has combined
a school for support.
This place during the war was the scene
of revolution. Since the war Mr. Williams

markably successful, a a teacher. His school
is a thorough Chnrch school, I believe, from

I do earnestly recommend him and his
cause. GEO. WOOLBRIDGE.

case will be brought up to-day.
It is very obvious that Mr. Williams was
simply " spoiling the Egyptians."
We regret to see the spirit of lawlessness
so rife in North-Carolina, as it is at present ;
and though we may lay ourselves liable to
the rehearsal of an oft told tale, we will
again bring it prominently before our people.
This spirit must be put down. Murder, ar
son, highway robbery and general destruc
tion of property, are crimes ot blackest mag
nitude, of which North-Carolina has long
been comparatively guiltless ; and 6he owes
it to her fair tame to prevent the contmued
recurrence of such acts of villanv.
The perpetrators of these outrages must
be brought to justice. It can be done with
out military interference ; but unless the civil
authorities bestir themselves, and the best
men of every locality render aid, we fear the
military will again be sent among us in num
Crimes such as have been committed
among us for the last twelve months, were
almost unknown ljefore the war; and al
though we are now far behind many ot the
States, in the catalogue of crime, we hare
made such rapid strides i;i th it direction re
cently., as to lead the true i.vrr of the State
to mourn over the degeneracy and evil of the
We do not believe anything other than a
spirit of plunder actuates, generally, tho par
ties engaged in the nefarious transactions.
The bands are composed of the worst men
of the several communities in which they are
organized. Some of them are doubtless
around us daily. They read the articles pen
ned against them in the morning papers ;
they note the money paid to the man who
sells his produce in market; they visit the
plantations and select the stock for theft ;
and then give notice to their brother robbers
of the information they have gathered, and
lay their plans for the perpetration of the
crime determined upon.
They are no respecters of persons. They
take all kinds of fish in their nets. To-day
a negro is plundered, to-morrow a northern
man's farm is invaded, and his stock driven
off; while the day after the little which a
Confederate officer, or soldier, has saved
from the wreck is taken from him.
Justice demands that these villians be
punished, surely, swiftly and severely. They
are doing incalculable mischief mischief far
beyond the mere injury which they inflict,
from time to time, upon individuals whom
they plunder. The mischief they are work
ing will surely reach every person in the
State. None can feel safe while they are
permitted to infest the land, plunder the
people, and invade the sanctity of men's
homes. It needs but a prompt energetic
move on the part of our people to bring
these men to punishment. Will they not
make it ? Newbern Journal of Commerce.
A Powerful. Locomotive. A monster
locomotive has been added to the rolling
stock of the Lehigh and Mahonoy Branch of
Valley Railroad. It is called the "Consoli
dation." It weighs 48 tons 6 cwt, 20-inch
cylinder, with 24-inch stroke ; has 8 driving
wheels, 48 inches in diameter, with but a sin
gle truck ; length of furnace 9 feet; and has
173 inch flues. A few days since the Consol-
idation was put to a test, drawing 107 empty
coal cars up a grade of 96 feet to the mile.
Another trial was made afterwards, when 75
empty cars were drawn up a 146 feet grade.
The Reading Railroad has a locomotive ten
tons heavier, but it cannot turn .short curves
as the Consolidation can. . '
