THURSDAY, MARCH 21, 1867.
A Dht Eating Consul.
It is well known that some months ago
(it is said at tho dictation of President
Johnson) Wm. II. Seward, Secretary of
State, sent to the various consuls and
ministers of the United States resident in
Europe, on the strength of a letter
received from one "Wm. II. M'Cracken,
who at tbe time was traveling in Europe,
an inquisitor? epistle inquiring if they
had indulged in any remarks derogatory
of the President or that condemned his
"policy." Although many humiliating
if not craven replies were received from
our representatives abroad in answer to
the inquisition of the President, that from
Charles II. Upton, consul at Geneva,
Switzerland, is fairly and by great odds
entitled to bear the palm. Cousi'l Upton
first "passes over" the assertion that he is
a "common drunkard." He seems to be
willing that he should be considered a
victim to his cups; he can bear up under
that charge, and for sake ot his dignity
treats it with ihe contempt ot silence, but
that he should have abused the President,
or uttered a word not in praise of him, is
too much for the consul at Geneva, and
he accordingly clears his skirts of that
grae assertion in these words:
"Born and educated at the North, and
having lived thirty years at the douth, I
hare learned much of tbe character and faults
of both sections. Our late civil war was, in
my judgment, the result of those mutual
provocations. I believed that the earliest
possible reconciliation, after the war was
over, whs the dictate of wisdom and human
ity. When Mr. Ward Beecher published his
Cleveland letter I rejoiced ; when the pres
sure of party compelled him to retract I was
"At a public dinner given in this city on
the last 4th of July, to which I was invited,
and which was gotten up by some gentlemen
belonging to the Philadelphia League, I was
called upon to respond to a toast for the
President. In roy remarks, this part of
which was published, I begged those who
heard me to remember the great services
which tbe President had rendered to the
country, and when they returned home to
treat him with kindness and forbearance.
Buch have been my sentences aud utterances;
but if it happened that I differed politically
with the Chief Magistrate, whose commission
I held, I should have too much respect for
cry position either to abuse him or to allow
others to do so in my presence."
Poor Upton ! he must have a weakness
for consulships, aa ho certainly has for
the softer sex, and they also for him, for
his letter is accompanied by another
signed by seven of them testifying to his
temperate habits, his kindness to his
country men,- (and, of course, infinitely
kinder to his country- tcomen,) and that he
never apoke other than respectfully of the
President for which tho President ought
to be obliged, especially if his St. Louis
speech ever reached Geneva.
The Fenians are more ubiquitous than
Ranquo's ghost. Dispatches from Brit
ish sources say that all disturbances in
Ireland have ceased, and that the entire
people are tranquil, but ominously add
that the authorities have good reason to
fear another rising, and have taken the
nerensarv measures to nrevent it. That
j - r - - -
is, although the Fenian outbreak is over,
the British government still sends ships
and troops to the disaffected districts.
On this side the Atlantic, the fear of an
other invasion on the Canadian border by
tbe Fenians seems scarcely less in magni
tude thau the fright caused by the nearly
successful invasion of last year. Ogdcns
bure, N. Y., appears to be the place of
assembling for tbe Fenians. British
troops are moving toward rarious points
on the Canadian frontier, in anticipation
of an attack by the Fenians.
The eccentric John Randolph, after
having been appointed miuister to Russia,
was aked, while stopping in Liverpool,
on his way to tbe Russian capital, what,
in his judymeut, was the remedy for the
dissatisfaction of the Irifh people with
the Britibh government. To the question,
he promptly and aptly replied "Unmuz
lc the ox that treadeth out the corn."
The words uttered by Randolph are no
less true and applicable to-day than when
they first fell from his lips, and now, as
then, constitute the magic wand that is
,able to make the breezes of the sea bear
' tranquility to the people of Ireland. That
unfortunate nation suffers wrong at the
.hands of Great Britain, and we trust she
may continue to make the earth echo
with her cries until she receives tbac jus
tice to which all mankind have an equal
and indefeasible claim.
,JIf every Presidential message, from the
first message of Lincolu down the lst mes
sage of Johnson, veto messages and all, were
published in regular succession, no fair rea
aoner could fix the linf of departure between
the first message and the laat." Ebensburg
So the editor of the Freeman, by his
own chopping of logic, acted a dunce's or
a hypocrite's part in opposing the war
nd the administration of President
ow in upholding iresMcni John-un.
A" bill "supplementary to the act of
2d March, for the more efficient govern
ment of the rebel States, and to facilitate
restoration, was passed by the House on
the 11th indtant, by a vote of 117 to 27.
The bill directs the commanding General
in each district provided for by that act
to cause to bo made, before the first of
September next, a registration in each
county or pariah of the male citizens of
the United States over twenty-one years
of age, resident in such couufy or parish,
which registration shall include all those
persona who are qualified to vote for dele
gates by the act of 2d March, and who
shall have taken and subscribed an oath
of fidelity to the Union and the govern
ment of the United States and to the
Constitution and the laws made in pursu
ance thereof. When such registration
shall have been completed, and copies
thereof returned to the commanding Gen
eral, tbe General commanding shall with
in thirty days thereafter cause an election
to be held for delegates' to frame State
constitutions, to re-establish loyal civil
government, and to pass all needful ordi
nances for putting such constitutions and
government into operation. The constitu
tions to be adopted by a majority of the
registered voters, and on approval of Con
gress, Senators and Representatives to be
admitted from Buch States.
On Saturday, the bill was taken up by
the Senate and was passed by the deci
sive vote of 38 to 2. It was not materi
ally altered from the shape in which it
passed the House, the principal changes
being that unless a majority of the regis
tered voters vote for a convention, no
convention shall be held, and that the
constitution shall be adopted when voted
for by a majority of not less thau one-half
of the registered voters.
The bill now goes to a committee of
Torts and Retorts.
The Freeman lasi week published the
bill for the reconstruction of the Southern
States, and gave as a reason for not pub
lishing it in the same issue in which it
was severely criticised that "it was not a
law at the time." Having passed both
Houses of Congress and been put into the
the hands of the President,' it was in the
Freeman's judgment a fit object for
adverse criticism and severe denunciation,
but not for perusal by its readers. How
superlatively fair it is to forestall judg
ment by bitter denunciation J In the
issue next subsequent to the one in which
it was denounced, although the bill had in
the meantime become the law of the land,
it was still kept from tho Freeman's
readers, and when given in last week's
issue, it ii accompanied by still further
denunciations tending to excite prejudice
against its provisions. The Freeman
chooses to denounce rather than argue,
probably because the latter was the more
congenial course both to itself and to its
The Freeman makes thrusts at The
Alleyhanian on the score of fairness, but

6peaks only of the present volume, then it
is true that we have never published a
veto message of the President, but neither
has the Freeman. So, to convict us, is to
convict itself. But every message (of
the President) has not been abused with
out stint, and the President has nor been
called a traitor (to his country) in these
New Hampshire has elected General
Harriman, :he Republican candidate for

In the Republican nominating convention,
the contest between Harriman and his

in favor of Harriman. it left wounds that
threatened to jeopardize our success. But
the Granite State has elected a Republican

manner in which faithful Republican

outside of their districts. The following,
from the Meadcille Daily Republican, is iu

State Senate :
"General Harry White stands deservedly

The solution of. the national problem
was foreshown in miniaturo in the Dis
trict of Columbia at the late municipal
election. Georgetown was redeemed by
radical voters. It was shown that the
colored man knows better than to vote
with the pro-slavery party, and that white
men and colored men can vote together
without a .".war of races." . There was
never a more peaceful election. The same
thi d; can be repeated on a grand scale.
As to the apprehension of a "war ot ra
ces" in such an event, the Georgetown
experiment furnishes a striking illustra
tion of the facility with which even prej
udiced whites become ashamed of their
prejudice and lose all their aversion to
seeing the negro at the ballot box. A
correspondent who visited the polls oa the
occasion named say :
"A venerable colored citizen pave us a
ticket of the kind he voted. It had at
the top a picture of the black man's true
friend. Father Abraham. Passing on to
one poll, we found an orderly crowd, about
one-fourth blacks. Policemen were sta
tioned at the window where the tickets
were banded in, but this display of uni
forms and clubs appeared to bo entirely
unnecessary, unless it was to curb the re
bellious spirits of the secesb, who indica

contemptuous meio. ' J

The 91. E. Conference on tbe

During the reeent (session of the Pitts

Massillon, the Committee on the State
of tbe Country presented tho following
report, which was adopted :
"The state of the country is at the pres

been transferred from the field to the

now confront each other, and the realissue
is whether treason shall recover what it

Words of Truth.
Maj. Gen. Thomas, commanding the
Department ot Tennessee, in a letter to
the Mayor ot Borne, Ga., who had asked
the release of certain citixens of that place,
arrested by General Till ion for displaying
tbo rebel flag, took occasion to express
sentiment! which will meet response in
every loyal bosom. Replying to the
pretence that no disrespect to the govern
ment was intended by those who flaunted
the rebel emblem, he says :
"The late civil war was a rebellion, and
history will so record it. Those engaged
in it are and will be pronounced rebels;
rebellion implies treason, and treason is a
crime, and a heinous one too, and deser
ving of punishment ; and that traitors
have not been punished is owing to the
