that tho President of the United Stales did not

popular had been entrnsted with tho rcor
gsolzstlon of a State Government, was not
continued In Indefinite and Inactive power, so

Ills crltleUmuponlbuolUeiulaels uf the I'nil

Tho first su tores tlou v, hleh uttracts attention
In his lettei lo Mr. Ui U, Is "that it Is no part
of tbo Constitutional duty oflboEAecutlvu to
deLlaro what Is aud what Is not tho Coiistllu
tlonal power ol Congress." Aud this Is said
of a paper which thu President kites hts ret
sous lor withholding kl-t approval or an act or
Congress which could havu uo validity with
out his signature. CerLaluly uo clearer Con
stitutional right can exist than that of tho
provo a public act, bceausohois unprtpurud
to declare A power In Congress lo abolish sla
very In States. By approval hu does "declare"
the power. Has ho no right to withhold ap-
proval for that reason f
Neither Is It Just for Mr. Duraut to aisuuid
that because he questions tho power of Cou-
gress to abolish slavery lu tho States. In por-
lions of which ho httnsulf had emancli ated thu
alavesby proclamation, "that the language of
the Executive must mean that it Is desirably to
mafntatn slavery In the exempted dlsirletsof
Vlrirtnla. Louisiana, and leunosflco on the ono
I'rctfiaeni -a declare tune uu uesusiua to ay
hand, or that tho prochmation on the other has'
no leicsl elfectlu the remaining rebel dtaus,
The powers of Ccngress and tbo Lxoeullvo are
well de lined and perleelly distinct. It has never
been claimed for Congress that It baa power tu
abolish slavery In the States. It has never Uttn
denied that tho Executive, as Command or
la Chief, In tlmo of war would have I oner to
emancipate slaves held by tbe uueiuks of the
rniintrv. It has buen mado a natation wheLLLr
tho actor emancipation iselUetlvo an I valid

it cannot bo douled that us a mluuryp rtUe

iiotll lie juit iHiu o jau", ur uiut un aet i'l e
greis, if' J wont the will it e h
universal admission, on either side of the line
of military possession.
Why, then, should Mr. Durant charge the
President upon a Just, proper, and ctnatltn
tlonal expression of his opinion as to the power
of Congress with a desire 'to maintain slav
cry in tho excepted districts," or a disbelief In
Ihe legal sflVct of his proclsmstlon of msncl
pstlon? And this, too, when he himself hs
j rotcstexl in Impassioned terms to the President
blmslf Sfstnsi tbo abolition of slavery, and
the tendency of his Administration to what hf
thought an unjust and Illegal end. Hdw Is It
that he. of all men, Is required to listen, "with
out reply to the gravest accusations of losln
cerlty on tbe p rt of the Executive In regard to
tho question of slavery."
"Legally speaking," says Mr. Durant, "the
States declared to bo In rebellion are subject
to tbe exclusive legislative power of Corigrcfls."
lie knows perfectly well that without the con
currence of the President tho "legislative"
pmerof Congress Is without aoy elTtxl what
ever, on aoy subject.
Tho allegation that the President list fallen
Into "a grae error" in suggesting1 that a
Proo State Constitution had been adopted In
Louisiana is Incorrect.
No Free State Constitution had been adopted
on the 8th day of July nor as yet has any
been adopted In Louisiana. This subterfuge
docs not do Him credit, lie knew perfectly
well that the Convention had appro ted the
most absolute declaration of unconditional and
Immediate emancipation which Is possible
within the compass of langnsgo a declaration
that bad then been copied by Maryland, and
v hlch Louisiana had passed, with an approach
to unanimity that ought to make his friend
from Marylindbluah. There are not half
dozen of tho members who offered it in tbe
Convention, whoso nemos are not appended to
this great Charter of Freedom.
Has ho not tho heart to feel that tho act of
emancipation Is achsrter, a constitution of It
self) wholo as tbo marblo. "ono entire and

A great many crocodile tears have been shed
by the Copperhead papers over the destruction

A correspondent of the New York Time re

of our readers as " Porte Crayon," and a loyal
" Esrly In January, 1803, a body of" Confed
erate troops made a sudden dsnh npon the
Springs. There was, 1 think, no resistance.
Unmindful of how the Eurathlan cooquerer
bade spare tbe house of Plndarui,' these troops
cut In pieces tbe paintings of port Crayon,
and burned his cottage. Theytnok possession
of the hotel In which the tldr Strother lay
npon a sick bed. They used his furniture for

by forests, and finally went oif after plunder
