in everybody's way everything in

In to-day's paper will be found
the Amnesty Proclamation of the
President, 'which was issued on
Christmas, December 25, 1808, (not
1867, as wo orroncouslj' printed two
weeks since.) The Radical papers
have already set up their usual howl
about this Proclamation. A largo
portion of those papers is devoted
to the abuse of President Johnson,
whoso' election, in 18G4,'thcy so
warmly advocated. Instead of car
rying out ; thoir unconstitutional
acts, ho has tried to oboy his oath
and support the Constitution of the
United Slates. . -
"As the little Radical rag printed
in Vinton count)' is terribly alarm
ed about tho Amnesty Proclama
tion, wo will try to quiet its nerves
by quoting - tho following from the
York Tribune of a late date:
. ' We Bcldom of late find a decent
excusefor praising Andrew Johnson;
but wo thank him for putting an
'end, even thua dastardly, to the
swindling legal farcc.'enactedevcry
few mouths, under tho deceitful title
oa 'Trial of Jeff. Davis. A swindle
by which nobody is duped a farce
at which nobody thinks of laughing
must ha'o outlived its day. Now,
'there has been no intelligent person
dicoivod for at least two years back,
by tho pretense of keeping Davis in
confinement or holding him to bail,
as though it were intended that ho
should bo put on trial for his life.
For a time, thoro was 6ome such ex
pectation; and tbo good nnturcd
public thought it ratheranico thing
to spend 1100,000 or bo per annum
to keep him safe in Fortress Monroe
till the day of trial should arrive
Unt ho who docs not know that
trials for treason must bo brought on
while trorson is still rampant and
perilou', or very soon after its col-
Japse.eieo a conviction Is impossible
cannot nave read many volumes of
history. ' We douht that it ever was
liossi bio to convict Davis of trofison
la a civil court unless by excluding
every active Democrat from the jury
box. J udge Uuderwood, who would
liavo rejoiced to try him with a tol
crablo chance of success, testified bo
fore a Committeo of Concross that
no verdict could bo obtained against
him In Virginia, unless tho jury wore
packed for the purpose which is
nndoobtodly true. And that trnt.li
doubtless affords one of tho reasons
for not trying him. .. ,.
If any ono is son-y that wo arc
not lo iiave -another procession of
mwyors to lucumonU another tab
leau in court and another an
nouncement by tolograph that, tho
inai oi jenorson Uavis been post
ponod 1 to the next term he will
oouuueei maico it manliest."

ing ' the month H of December the
nice . little sum ot eight millions

tion with the fact that tho National
Treasury has been depleted already
Jo the verge of bankruptcy, and
with that other fact, namely, that
this issue of bonds is but a drop in
tho bucket 'compared with other
outlandish expenditures of our most
improvident and reckless govern
ment, will possibly arouse the tax
paying portion of the people to a
sense of the monstrous evils brought
upon the country by Radical legis
lation. The logical ecquenc.6 from
historical and existing fucte is, that'
the next thing will be the old etory
of "vested rights," and any amount
of argumentation lo shew that the

deemed at all haiards. When will
the toilers in the industrial hive
learn wisdom from the losnons of a
sad and ruinous experience?
The President's Proclamation
Whereas, The President of the
United States lias herotoforo sent
several proclamations, which offered
amnesty and pardon to persons who
had been or were concerned in the
late rebellion against tho lawful au
thority of the Government of the
United btates, which proclamations
wor severally issued on the 8th day
of December, 1SG3; on the 20th
lay of March, lSt4; on the 29th

day of July in the present year ;
Anp whkreah, the authority of
the Federal Government having
been re-established in all tho States
and Territories within the jurisdic
tion ot tho h nited .jtates, it is be
lieved that such Presidential reser
vations and exceptions ns at the
dates of said several proclamations
were deemed necessary and proper,
may now bo wisely and justly relin
quished, and th.it a universal am
nesty, and pardon for participation
in said rebellion bo extended to all
who havo borne any part therein,
will tend to secure permanent peace,
order and prosperity throughout
tho land, and to rcnowand fully re
store the confidence and fraternal
feeling among tho whole people,
and their mpeot for and attach
ment to tho Nutional Government
designed by its patriotic founders
for the general good
Kow, therefore, be it known, that
L, Andrew Johnson, President of
the United Slates, by virtue of tho
power and authority in me vested
by tho Constitution, and in tho
name of the sovereign people of tho
United Btates, do hereby proclaim
and , declare,' unconditionally and
without reservation, to all and to
every person who directly or indi
rcctly participated in tho Into insur
rection or rebellion, a full pardon
and amnesty for .the offense of

or of adheringto thoir enemies dur

Welch, J. ' - " .'.:
A railroad contractor agreed with
tho company to coustructand equip
its ,entiro road lor t-$l,C0d,Q00,.of
which '?2o0,vu0 was to bo paid in
cash and cash a3Sots, aud tho bnl
ance in tho bonds and slock of the
company, .the price named being
ihofe than twice the eush value of
tho work. The' compact' provided
that payments should bo made on
monthly estimates, and in such of
tho said descriptions of payment hS
tho contractor deemed would bost
subservo his" purpose In doing the
work, but the contract fixed no timo
for the completion of the work. It
also provided thatthepartiesHhould
aid in converting said nfesots, bonds,
and stock , into, moaus for carrying
on the work, and that tho con
tractor need not carry It on taster
thin such means would servo. " The
contractor did work under tho con'
tract to tho nominal amount of
5117,000, which, at his request, was
mostly paid him in the cash assets,
and then, the charter of the. com
pany having expired by its own
limitation, tho work was suspended
by mntuul consent, and the road
abandoned, its bonds and stock thus
becoming worthless. JIM: That
the contractor is bound to account
to the company for all actual profits
realied from the work.
2. Whcro subscribers to tho stock
of a railroad company had given
their notes for tho amounts of sub
scriptions, puyablo when the road
should be completed, but were sub
sequently induced to take up these
notes, and to givo new ones, paya
ble in four years, in order to enable
the company to carry out a contract
for the completion of the road, and
upon the confident but honest ex
pression of opinion by its officers,
that if they would do so, the road
wimld he coni plcted under juqh.iQn -.
tractlii less than four years." Held:
That. nlthouKb the said contract for

or, ana tno roxa nas never been

J.HK 1 inanciai uticstion is
the great problem for solution
in the Federal Congress at
this, session. It will be a
puzzle, sure , enough! There
aro three ways about it: ex
pansion, contraction, and Ihe
let-alone policy. Perhaps the
last is the best. .Contraction,
however, seems to be the fa-
vonto idea of the Republican
leaders.- ; Soma exceptions
there are, and one of these is
Senator Morton of Indiana.
Ben. Butler, in tho House, is
also opposed to the resump
tion of specie payments. Ono
thing is certain: Unless the
Radicals systematically prac
lice uio severest economy,
unless, indeed, they- are as
penurious, even, as Frederick
the Urcat or Frederick Wil
liam, his father, tho country
goes to tho wall, financially.
VY 0 may boast oi our re
sources; but' no country caii

which, sinco 1861, has given
