HOUSE OF COMMONS.
Monday, Dec. 10th, 1866.
The House passed the committee's resolu
tion to adjourn on the 24th of Decembcr,and
meet on the 22nd of January. The Senate
amended the resolution by providing for

herd and TIks. S. Aslie were elected Coun
cillors of State.
The proceeding will appear in full in our
Reorganization at the South.
The unsatisfactory condition of affairs at
the South is established by the reports of the
military commanders stationed there. To
many of the statements enanating from that
section, respt-cting outrages upon freedmen
and other evidences of aversion to Federal
control, we have paid little attention, believ
ing that they were colored, if not invented
for partisan purposes. But to the represen
tations made by our military authorities in
the Soutliemi States no suspicion can possi
bly attach. Whatever be their opinions on
controverted political questions, at. anv rate
thev are responsible and impartial. Thev
enjoy the well-earned confidence of" the loval
people of the land, and their averments will
undoubtedly be accepted as conclusive on
questions of fact.
On the important fact touching the treat
ment of the Ireeduien, the testimony of the
Generals is positive and unfavorable. An
idea has obtained that South Carolina has
done itself honor by the fullness of its pro
visions for justice to the colored people.
Gen. Sicki.es, however, rejwrts that in
some districts of that State the freed man is
dependent upon the presence and protection
of national troops for security for life, limb
or property." A prevailing indisposition
to prosecute, and a failure to punish offenders
when negroes are the sufferers is imputed
to the local authorities; and an extraordina
ry State enactment is cited under which
militia officers may " disperse, suppress, kill
and destroy any company of freedmen or
others who shall be lurking in any suspected
place where they may do mischief." From
Kentucky, Gen. Davis reports an increase of
lawlessness since the triumph of rebel candi
dates at the election. Gen. Wood, writing
from Mississippi shows that laws remain in
force prohibiting freedmen from purchasing
real estate, and that only freedmen who have
obtained a special license are permitted to
Ijear arms. The inferior local authorities,
too, are slow to proceed against rebel offen
ders, who usually escape unpunished. Gen.
Sheridan, referringto affairs in Texas, speaks
yet more positively. There, the General re
marks, " the trial of a white man for the
murder of a freedman would be a farce." And
while a great outcry is raised when a single
white settler is killed by Indians, " over the
killing of many freedmen in the settlement
nothing is done.
Again, Arkansas lias been singled out as
by comparison a reconstructed State. It
seut loyal men to Washington last Winter,
and has seemed to be largely impregnated
with Northern influences. Encouraged,
probably, by the position assumed by the
Presxlent, and the greater degree of boldness
which distinguishes the tone of Southern
politicians on national affairs, the rebel ele
ment in Arkansas has asserted its right to
rule. Gov. Murphy is not an extreme man.
as the manner in which he presented the
pending Constitutional Amendment to the
local Legislature, for ratification, proved.
Apart from him, the State Government is
once more in rebel hands. The three mem
bers of Congress elect were chosen because
of the support they gave to the rebellion ; the
State offices, with the exception of the Exe
cutive chair, have been assigned to conspic
uous rebels ; a large majority of the Legisla
ture belong to the same class; and all the
counties save three have given their minor
local offices to men who have waged war
against the Government. The Union men of
the State propose to meet in Convention to
petition Congress for a grant of the same
powers which were entrusted to them three
years ago, when the work of reconstruction
on its present basis was undertaken. The
men who cooperated with Mr. Lincoln then
ask now for power to begin anew, with the
light of recent experience to guide them.
The mere issue of the call for a gathering to
petition has aroused the ire of the rebels in
the State Legislature, who have talked of le
gislation to aid the Governor in suppressing
the movement. Forcible suppression, after
the style in vogue at New Orleans, is hardly
likely to be attempted, and the Unionists,
we presume, will make themselves heard at
North-Carolina seems no nearer honafide
reconstruction than other parts of the South.
The election of an ultra Secessionist, Judge
Manly, to the United States Senate, illus
trates the predominant temper of the Legis
lature. Ex-Gov. Holden one of President
Johnson's appointees declares, in the Ral
eigh Standard, of which he is the editor,
that the Provisional Government experiment
has been a failure ; that " the President was
deceived, and his Provisional Governors were
deceived ;" that " all hope that existing
Southern organizations will concur in meas
ures necessary to restore the Southern States
to the Union is at an end ;" and that " there
is nothing left but to reorganize the South
ern States." For this conclusion the repre
sented States may not be fully prepared.
But the expression of such an opinion in
such a quarter is a sign of the times not to
be overlooked, while the facts we have col
lated may help to familiarize us with the
outlines of the Southern position.
That anything short of the surrender of
the Union Party and principle will satisfy
the present leaders of southern opinion we
do not believe. Even President Johnson
does not satisfy them ; for, though opposed
to the Constitutional Amendment, the lang
uage of his Message commits him to the sup
port of the test oath. But the South will
have neither. It refuses to ratify the amend
ment, and it demands the admissiorn to
rtngress"of whomsoever U may "ctioose to
send, rebel or no rebel. , u We utterly reject
his test oath," is the answer of the Richmond
Examiner a journal which under its pres
ent management, is one of the most efficient
exponents of Southern opinion. ' We think
the South would rather stay out of Congress
indefinitely" than be represented by persons
who would swallow the oath, is the state
ment with which the Examiner disposes of
Mr. Johnson's safeguard. It is evident,
therefore, that the Amendment is not the ob
stacle to restoration. The real obstacle is
the aversion of the Southern politicians to
everything calculated to insure the peace and
integrity of the nation. They require that
they should dictate terms before resuming
their places in the Union. 2f. T. Times.
"Ex-Gov. Holden, in The Raleigh Stan
dard, frankly and urgently says that the
experiment of Provisional Governments in
the South has been a failure. Mr. Holden,
though but lately an appointee of Mr. John
son, is impelled to declare that the President
was deceived, and so were his Provisional
Governors. He even more emphatically says
that " all hope that existing Southern organ
izations will concur in measures necessary to
restore the Southern States to the Union is
at an end." If Governor aud Editor Holden
has reasoned from the character of Southern
opinion as expressed in his exchanges, he has
reached his conclusions logically. If he has
read the messages of the handful of ready
made Governors who just now vie with each
other in biliously rejecting the bread of the
Constitutional Amendment as a very unsat
isfactory kind of stone, he might come to the
same conclusion. As one of the most intelli
gent public men of the South, though not by
nature a Radical, Mr. Holden probably ut
ters the opinions of the mass of Union men
from the most compromising to the most
inveterately" loyal. His judgment is theirs
in respect to the permanent reconstruction
of that section. Hew York Tribune, Dee. 7tA.

Opinions of the Press.
The Louisville Journal says : " The testimoni
als which Dr. Gardner presents to the public
could never have been obtained, except by the
display of great skill and learning in his profes
sion. One thing especially commendable in the
Doctor's practice is, that he will not attempt an
incurable disease for the sake of a fee, but lrankly
tells the patient whether he can be cured or not
We cheerfully recommend Dr. Gardner to the
attention of all our friends who may be suffering
from diseases of tbe eye or car."
The Richmond Tines says : " We have no hes-
ation in saying that Dr. Gardner is the most
,-ientific and successful eye and car Surgeon in

REASON WHY THE
'fade at WALTHAM, MASSACHUSETTS,
IS THE BEST.
It is made on the best principle. Its frame is
imposed of SOLID PLATES. Nor jar can in
rfere with the harmony of its working and no
idden shock can damage its machinery. Every
iece is made and finished by machinery (itself
imous for its novelty, as well as for its effective
ess) and is therefore properly made. The watch
i what all mechanism should be ACCURATE,
IMPLE, STRONG AND ECONOMICAL. Ex
jpt some high grades, too costly for general use,
jreign watches are chiefly made by women and
oys. Such watches are composed of several
aindred pieces, screwed and riveted together,
and require constant repairs to keep them in any
kind of order. All persons who have carried
"ancres" "lepines" and "English Patent Le
vers," are perfectly well aware of the truth of
At the beginning of our enterprise more than
ten years ago, it was our first object to make a
thoroughly gootk. low priced watch for the mill
ion, to take the place os these foreign imposi
tions ; the refuse of foreign factories, which were
entirely unsaleable at home and perfectly worth
(low well we have accompolished this, may be
understood from the fact that so many years of
public trial, we now make MORE THAN HALF
OF ALL THE WATCHES SOLD IN THE
UNITED STATES, and that no others have ever
iven such universal satisfaction. While this de
partment of our business is continued with in
reased facilities for perfect work, we are at pre
ent engaged in the manufacture of watches of
he every HIGHEST GRADE KNOWN TO
JHRONOMETRY, nnequaled by anything hither
;o made by ourselves, and unsurpassed by any
hing made in the world. For this purpose we
ave the amplest facilities. We have erected an
ddition to onr main building expressly for this
ranch of our business, and have filled it with the
est workmen in our service. New machines
nd appliances have been constructed which per
jrni their work with consummate delicacy and
xactness. The choicest and most approved ma
srials only are used, and we challenge compari
n between this grade of our work and the finest
nported chronometers. We do not pretend to
ell our watches for less money than foreign
matches, but we do assert without fear of contra
iceion that for the same money our product is
icomparably superior. All our watches, of what
ver grade, are fully warranted, and this warran
;e is good at all times against us or our agents
i all parts of the world.
CAUTION. The public are cautioned to buy
nly of responsible dealers. All persons selling
ounterfeits will be prosecuted.
