SATURDAY MORNING:.-..:-::-APRIL It, MM.
ONE YEAR AGO.
In tke-year of onr Lord 1665, on the 14th
day of April, ABRAHAM LINCOLN, the
sixteenth President of the United States of
America, was assassinated. Nothing In ac
tual life erer aurpaased the horror or enor
mity of the tragedy; and romance never
equalled the dreadful realty of the awful
crime. Absahax Livcot-t earned the respect
not only of his own countrymen, but the ad
miration of the world for his auitere virtues,
and lofty personal character; moro than this,
he had won, as no other American ever had,
the tenderest affections and earnest love of
the people whom he served. The moat terri
ble civil war of modem tunes had ended In
national triumph; conquering armies were
etaroing home with their tattered ensiirns:
the cannon had sounded Its hoarse notes of
jubilee throughout the empire; end the ho.
aannas of an exultant people had rung out
from ocean to ocean, in one united strain of
joy, when the anouncement of the murder
of tho great and good Parsiourr, flashing
across the continent, hashed every voice,
changed the peel into a dirge, substituted na
tional joy with national grief, and for a mo
ment made men doubt whether the Ood who
gave the victory had not robbed us of its
glory and worth in permitting the death of
onr immortal and beloved leader.
One year ago this day the darkest hour in
human history, save one, and the heaviest
task for human faith, came to us. The land
was shrouded with the emblems of woe ; a
wail of anguish went up from the whole
country; a million stalwart men in arms,
who knew not fear, quailed beforo a single
death; thirteen millions of citizens who
never lost heart trembled in their grief at
the inexplicable mysteries of Providence,
and one lifeless corpse seemed to hold within
its inanimate clay the hopes and the courage
of the nation.
We will not revive the terrors of that fatal
night Wc care not to recall tho emotions
of that baleful hour. The palsy of the com
munity ; the stricken country; the agony of
sorrow ; the funeral march, when from the
sombre Capitol they bore him, amid scenes
of unusual sadness, from city to city, past
uncounted thousands of weeping men and
women, for sateen hundred miles to his dis
tant prairie grave, Is fresh in all our memo
ries and cannot bo forgotten. Our task to
day is of a different nature. It is not his
death, but his life, that most concerns us.
We ask what distinguished that life ; what
placed him so far above his countrymen,
that hereafter the test of greotncsswill be to
approach hia standard of excellence ! Wh)
were his virtues universally recoirnliedt
Why was his loss considered almost irrepar-
aDie i ny uu the liumblest, even more
than the highest, sob over his departure 1
Why did patriotism regard him as its un
questionable exponent f What is the moral
of his career? Was the grief that followed
him to the "dark bouse aod the long home"
real or fictitious t Is his memory properly
revered, and is his peerless example regarded
to-day t These ore questions which force
themselves homo, on this dreary anniversary,
and their answers might well be considered
as the most important of all that affects us.
ABItAII AM LINCOLN fought no battles,
around his brow we do not find the warrior's
wreath. He had no extraordinary, intellec
tual gifts; classic culture did not adom his
speech; and not to him do we look for the
model of American scholarship, or for para
gons of eloquence. We find the clue to hu
greatness, the source of his strength, and the
secret of his being embalmed in the popular
heart, to be hia catholic spirit of nationality,
and his pare and unselfish devotion to the
country of his birth. He was no systematic
reformer. Ho was neither au enthusiast or a
philosopher; he was simply a pure American
patriot. Patriotism was the pervading
element of his nature. It was from tbt
purest motives of patriotism thathe avoided
while i, was consistent with national honor, a
resort to tho tribunal of arms. From the
same lofty spirit, when the inevitable fato ol
war camekhe nsed all the means which the
Tast powers of the nation placed in his hands
for its nltimate preservation. He had no
other idea than the welfare and perpe
tuity of. the Republic our which he
had been called to preside. Prom the first
discharge of a rebel gun upon tho insulted
flag of his country to the moment of his
cruel death, the ono object of his life was to
effect a restoration of the insurgent States to
tketr practical relations with the Federal
Union. For that ho marshaled immense
armies, and sent forth our matchless fleets
For that he poured out tho treasure of the
people. For that ho liberated four millions
of bondmen, and placed within tho black
man's hand two hundred thousand muskets
For that heproclaimedVrancsty to those who
would abandon the rebellion and tako oath to
Government. For that he initiated tho re
turn of the insurrectionary gtatis hcn one
tenth of their voting population gave cvi
dense of lojalty. For that ho extended
"pardon to all whosolemnlyswear to hence
forth faithfully support, protect, and defend
the Coxstitctiox of tho United States and
the States therein." For that he conferred
with tho agents of the rebel Government
and went in person to Fortress Monroe "With
the riew of securing tho peaco of our one
common country." And as if to give addi
tional solemnity to this central purposo of hu
life, a few days before he left this earth, in
an elaborate address to the country, he
pledged liimself anew and untiringly to the
work of restoration.
The toil of his weary years of official anx
iety; the essence of his prayers to heaven;
he hope of his great heart was to effect that
sublime object. ABRAHAM LINCOLN
lived to see the foe everywhere beaten. He
saw the national authority everywhere main
tained. He heard the hallalujahs of final
victory; but he died before his eyes rested
upon the replacement of the revolted, State.,
or the inauguration of a reunited Republic.
For some Inscrutable reason God denied that
triumph to him. The performance pf that
duty he left to the eotmtrrmenwho survived
him. He hu been In his grave one year,
ana still the work Is unfinished. All that he
thought needful has been accomplished, and
more. Instead of one tenth, the entire south-

would seem that tho extremist wish of his
patriotic heart had been gratified, and that
his vision of success was complete. Vet,
we art not "one common country" Not ours,
on this anniversary of his assassination, be
the service to taunt any man with dereliction
of duty. But It Is the stern task of justice
to say that to sorrow over Abrauam Lix
colk's death, and to be indifferent to the
great example of his life, is to mock his
counsel ; and it argues a criminal forgetful
neu of his precepts and teachings. As far
as humanity is concerned, tho loss of him by
the hand of the assassin is augmented by the
sacrifice of the purpose which he had so near
Could our earnest appeal reach every citi

and tictorioos conquerors not to remember

liberty and honor America; but to remember
that our mission is still unaccomplished, and
bid them go to those words of wi&dom, which
seem to have caught their Inspiration from
that Heaven through whose portals Abra

them the paramount duty of tho present

and cherish a Just and a luting peace among
ourselves, and with all nations."

Mr. Dicsixiom was ejected to the State Senate
if New York In 1838, for four years, and from this
time became prominent as a politician At tbe

XowAao "rT. Gun wu executed by hanging
at Bast CaabrUgc, yesterday, for tbe murder of a
lad named Covraasa The crime was committed
some) two and evhatf years ago. The murderer wu
poctmutcr of Maiden) Us victim was clerk la the
Maiden Bank, which was located within a few rods
of the postoffltc. On the day when tbe deed was
perpetrated, use sir, who was la embarrassed cir
cumstances, entered the bank, and passed behind
the counter, as he bad been accustomed to do, and
found Coaviasa aloie, reading, while tbe money
drawer, containing $4 000 or $3,000, wu open.
The idea wu then and there formed to kill the boy
for the sake of tbe money, Qaiaa has positively
and persistently averred that no premeditation
prompted the kUUng. lie secured bis booty, and
passed unsuspected for many days, while tbe whole
community wu aroused to ferret cut the murderer.
A lingular fact la the crime is that It wu commit
ted at mid day. In the heart of a populous tin age.
Other parties were arrested oa suspicion and bald
for examination j but no thought turned towards
tbe guilty man. At length Obese confessed to
soma friend. He could not bold bis dreadfufae-
cret. Ills arrest, Indictment and arraignment fol
lowed, when he admitted the killing, but would, on
no account, admit that It wu done with premedi
tation. According to the laws of Muaacbusetts,
murder with malice aforethought Is murder la the
first degree, and Is, alone, punishable with dath
Under tbe urgent advice of bis counsel, Gaaxa
finally pleaded guilty, and was, upon that plea,
without trial, without a bearing of tbe evidence,
sentenced to death.
Gov Aeduw doubted the legality of tbe sen
tence, and constantly refused to order the prisoner
for execution. He laid before his oounsel an
elaborate) argument to show that It would be mon
strous to punish with death, upon a plea of guilty,
when no attempt bad been made whatever to prove
the degree of guilt, and be proposed to bis consti
tutional adviser a commutation of the sentence to
the punishment prescribed for murder la the second

steadily refused to do. So It happened that while
the Governor could not commute the lantencc

and the cue wu left for bis successor In office, G or.
Meanwhile, a strong popular feeling had arisen
upon tbe subject, and men began to take aides for
and against the wretch's life There wu no doubt,
there could bo none, of his guilt. The only doubt
wu u to tbe degree of punishment that should 'be
Inflicted under the peculiar legal circumstances
that surrounded bis cue. The new Governor did
not share In the scruples of bis predecessor, and by
tbe advice of hia Council ordered tbe execution to
take place on Friday, April 13th. A writ of error
wu argued beforo the Supreme Courtof Massachu
setts by able lawyers, and Governor Ahdbew's
argument, blmself a lawyer of high standing, wu
put Into the case. The Court overruled the motion
for a new trial, and lut Tuesday the friends of the
unhappy man made a lut and futile effort to pro
cure a commutation. Tbey labored lealously and
generously for htm, but they did It under the dis
advantage of being forced to concede tbe guilt at
tho outset. Tbe only argument that could be

Mr. Fessenden wished to know If the Territorial

cer, and no officer absent for a longer time shall
receive any salary during bis absence, and upon a

Mr. Williams laid that many of thece officers
were in the habit, u soon u their salary eota
menied. of learinr the Terrltorv and oomlor here
to Wublngtoa or tbe States, some of them staying
for six months, and not eiea getting leave of ab
sence until tbey cattle here. This was the case
with many of the iudgls, and the business ef tbe
Territory was much delayed thereby. He did not
wisn to nime any one, our. to nis nnowieage many
of these offloers spent the greater part of the time
In Wuhington, drawing their salaries regularly
but attending to no duties
Mr. Grimes said that be bad beard of Judges
blng away for nine months, and no doubt some
remly should be bad. Many of these officers, the
Secretary for Instance, were obliged to be absent In
tbe performance of their duties, and this bill made
no provision for that
Mr. Neamith tboucht that there wu a necessity
for some bill of this character, but this wu of too
stringent a character
Mr. Wilson desired to bare the evil remedied,
butdldnotobiect to an amendment which would
allow offloers to be absent when In discharge of
their official duties.
Mr. Conness said this bill bad called his attention
to the fact that officers for the Territories were gen.
erally selected from among the worn out and super
annuated politicians of tbe East, men who were un
worthy or unable to fill high places at home.
Tbe bill then went over.

A PBBSOSAL EXLABAf 10.
Mr Bcofleld, of Pa.t rose to a personal explana
tion. He read a newspaper jtUtsnent signed by
two persons who claimed to haro represented tbe
oil producers of Western Pctmiylranla, In Wuh
ington, In the course of which It wai stated that
tbey bad ''found that the Representatives of West
ern Pennsylvania wore entirely Indifferent to the
petroleum Interest,' and that they had been "com
pelled to rely for the protection of that Interest
unon tbe courtesT of members of tbe House from
other States, and especially upon the endeavors of
bu, uarneia, oi unio " lis wisnea to say, idsi
prior to the coming of any deputation from the
reaosvlranla oil producers to this citv. be had been
loformed by the chairman of tbe Committee of
Hays ana Alcana, ib-u, in nis opinion, toe laaon
crude petroleum would soon be repealed. He added,
that so far aa he himself wu concerned, and also tn
behalf of bis colleagues, u far as he bad con
salted them, the charges contained in tbe state
ment whiob be bad read, were entirely aroondless.
He appealed to the chairman ef tbe Committee of
Ways and Means Mr Morrill and also to the chair
man of the Committee of Ways and Means at tbe lut
senior Mr. Stevens to bear testimony to bis efforts
In behalf of the oil Interest.
Mr. Morrill, of Vermont, said that tbe gentle
man from Pennsylvania (Mr. Bcofleld) bad applied
to blm again and again on the subject alluded to,
aod he (Mr. Morrill) had Informed him that. In bis
opinion, It wu tbe Intention of the committee to
report In favor of removing the tax from crude pe
troleum. Mr. Stevens, of Pennsylvania, said that he well
remembered, when bo wu chairman of the Com
mittee of Ways and Means In the lut Congress,
that tbe gentleman from Pennsylvania bad made
strong and persistent efforts to have this oil tax
reduced or removed. Indeed, some of tbe commit
tee had thought that the gentleman's efforts on the
subject wero rather too persistent, and he (Mr,
Stevens) was amongst the number.
Mr. Garfield, of Ohio, explained that his agency
In the matter wu merely u a member of tbe Com
mittee of Ways and Means. He bad received two
deputations on this subject,' and believing that the
object that they sought to accomplish wu a Tory
proper one, be bad done what he could to uslat
Mr. Randall, of Pennsylvania, said that, on be
half of tbe Democratlo members of the Pennsylva
nia delegation, he was perfectly willing to give bis
colleague (Mr Bcofleld) a certificate of having done
hta full duty on the oil question! and whatever
might occiir at the next election, he need not im-
fute It to having stood on both sides of an oil well.

bsnvllle, Ohio; In consideration of the distinguished
services of her eight sons In tbe Army, the sum of
$250 per annum in addition to tbe pension which
she nrfw receives on aecouiU of tbe death of her
husband In tbe service
Mf. Ferbam, of Maine, fromthe same commit
tee, presented a minority report as a substitute for
the report of the committee. While tbe minority
of tbe committee recognised the distinguished char
acter of tbe services srendered by the family of whom
this lady wu the mother, they were unable to see
why, out cf the thousands of widows and mothers
who bad given to their country's cause their sons
all the sons they had.lhls one should be seleoted
for special recognition
Mr. Kggleston, of Oblo, advocated the adoption
of the joint resolution reported by the committee
Mr. Or Inn ell, of Iowa thought that the Houte
should bestow Us atteotton upon the wants of tbe
widows and families of private soldiers, thousands
of whom wero destitute, rather than ujku the cues
of thoae who were well to-do In tbe world.
Mr. Rogera, of New Jersey, wu In favor of the
meuurc This wu an extraordinary case, and be
thought that tbo time had come for Congress to
make some public recognition Of such services as
those of tbe MeCook famllr.
Messrs. Binghami of Ohio, and Waihburne, of
Illinois, also made some brief remarks on the reso
lution, the former advocating and the latter op
posing It, in its present form

IDE BATAL ArrROPBlATIOB BILL.
Mr. Farnsworth, of HHjoIs, from tbe committee
of conference on the disagreeing votes of tbe two
Houses on the naval appropriation bill, made a
report, which was concurred in by the House
By this action of tbe House, the entire appro
Annapolis Is retained, Including appropriations for
tue improvement ana enlargement or me grounaa,
tbe erection of additional buildlojra and of a ma
chine shop, deslgaed for tbe practical Instruction
of tbe midshipmen. This action may be regarded
u a final decision In the negative of tbe proposal
to remove the Naval Academy from Annapolis to
some other point.
TUX A BT BILL.
The House then took up tbe special order for tbo
day vis the House bill to reorganise and establish
the Army of the United States, reported by Mr.
Sobenok from tbo Committee on Military Affairs.
Mr. dchenck, of Ohio, proceeded to addreis tbe
House In support of the bill. It was a bill, he said,
which had been framed in accordance with the
views of the Lieutenant General commanding,
strengthened by the judgmeniof tbe Secretary of
War, so far u It related to tbe numerclal strength
of the standing army of the coULtry tn tbe future.
He bad no doubt there would be a great difference
of opinion in tbe House as to the number of troops
fixed upon in the bill to constitute the future regu
lar army. He himself coold not get rid of an im
pression which he bad somehow received that we
ought to preserve a standing army of at leut one
hundred thousand men. J)e had, however, yielded
bla viewa to the superior Judgment of the Secretary
of War and Gen. Grant in this particular) and be
trusted that tbe many members of the House who
favored a larger standing army would do likewise.
Then, there wero other gentlemen, dsubtless, who
would claim that there ought t be either no
standing army at all, or else a very small one, like
that which existed previous to the way, and which
would merely serve as a necleua for a largo army
tn the. etnt of another war. He wu of opinion,
however, that It would be found that the numter
fired upon In the bill wu very far from being too
great, when tbo rut extent of tbeeountry, Its very
numerous forts, and posts requiring garrisons, and
lng line of defenceless Indian frontier was taken
Mr. Sobenok then proceeded to explain tbe pro
visions of the bill at some length. It provides that
the United States military peace estallsbment shall
In future consist of fire real moots of artillery,
twelve regiments of cavalry, fifty-five regiments of
infantry, tbe professors and corps of cadets of the
West Point Academy, and auch other forces u are
herein provided for, to be known as tbe Army of
tbe United States " The fire regiments of artil
lery arc to consist of the fire regiments now organ
ised f and alx nw regiments of cavalry are to be
added to the six now In service. Tbo flfty.flve
regiments of Infantry are to oonalst of the fourteen

Corpai and of eight regiment of colored men, to bo
known as United States colored troops. After ex
plaining the new features of the b II la detail, Mr.
Ichenek uked that tbe bill should be dUuseed
