. Now let us consider tho -net of the
president ia connection with these
principles and tbe state- of thingi in
Ljuisiaua. The President renounces
that State bb a Stato in the Union.
ItsCone'ituiion and btws, constituting
its goveru.neut and regulatin' thei
right of Bufffiiiie, reiniin intict, not
haviog boon aholiihed or altered by
tlio roiellioti. Thay have been solar
reeeuod from ro'iei graup that tlie p.o
plj ia a large porti'-n of tha Stato
inig''t exorcise that right nnintimidn
ted by armed rebels. Dot thoy ara
reslraiucd ; riot by tho rebels, but by
tho 111 mv of the United States.
Tho Pfesi loot HHume3 that iho
government ot L'Miit'a:ia has been
subverted by tho rebellion ofsow jul
her sons, and that, us a consequence
of that rahellion, all her Bona have loat
their riiht of eufl' agy an assump
tion without reason or luw. Ha then
projeed-t to granr the right to 8icb of
hem as will tnk j aa outo prescribed
by hi ui wa say prant, for however
obsmnod by eunaing phraseology, it
aiiioun'u to graut. Tho w.nco of tlia
transactian ia mora clearly expressed
in tlie following wordi, viz.: " Whero
as, by reason of the nbolliou of a
portion of the people of Louisiana, all
the citizens of ruid'Statj have lost
thair right of anffratje; n-)W, I Abga
!mni Lincoln, Presi-lent of tho United
States, by virtue of (what ?) do here
by give, graut and convoy to so many
of eaid cit;zuis as shall tako the
oatb aforesaid, tho right to vto for
Stato officers, members of Cmunm,
and electors of President and Vico
President; to htvo and bold sid
n'ubt as long as they shall keep said
oath, and no longer." Now, by what
authority is this'raat nude f But
one pretext if being allegjd f r it, and ;
that is scarcely worthy of notieo. - lt
tbht the President has a riht to
rant an amuety. and to annex cn 1
di'ions to that amnesty. Wo c .nsoda
the principlo, with the reservation j
that the conditions mn3t in themsalv-
es be lawful. We admit tHut when a
citizen has foifeited lifo and property !
by renellion, tlie President may spare j
life by amnesty, and leave his;
property to confiscation. But bo can
not accomplish any unlawful pnrposo
through the conditions of an amnesty.
lie can not overthrow State institu
tions through the conditions of an am
nesty to trai.ors against the United
States. lie can. not. by such condi-
Hons, overthrovr the legitimate State
iuviciiiuigiiw. ua uau live vajiv mil

mark to that irentlomari, and the
Llouee, that the only instance on rec
ord of such unwarranted assumption
of youth, in remarking upon the ef
fecs of age, is graphically as well as
tragically recorded in tho sacred Vol

tauntingly said to tho Prophet Elijah:
"Go up baldhea !;" and some forty 01
t!iC33 contemners wore reut to pieces

anxious tor a more vigorous proaocn

him to go into tho Borvhe nnd show
his sincerity. IJr. Spaaker, did not

Sketch of Hon. Archibald Mayo,
of Butler.
Mr. Mnyo, tho Mombor cf the
House of Itapre.ontativu8 froia But
ler, wa born at Oxford, in that coun
ry on tbe 11th of Juna 1833, and
heme is in the twenty-sixth year of
his aga. Ha is about five feut seven
inches high, slight of figuro, and will
weigh abvit 13'J poind j. At an ear
ly age he wa r&raoved from Butler
county to Philadelphia, where ha pre
pared for college, and completed his
education at Miami University' in this
State, in 135J. Having devoted the
Q-.nal period to iho 6tudy of law, be
was admited topractico in J8C2- He
was elected in October, 1363. by tho
the Democracy of Butler, to repre
sent thut county in tbo Legislature,
where he has already distinguished
himself by his hteligence, his ability
his eloquenee.and hh unfaltering ad
herence to the politic! of his party.
He frequently takes the floor in de
fense of Damooiatlo principles, and
always spnak3 fluently, gracefully and
clearly. Never making long speeches,
nor labored effarts, ha nover rises bot
he comunn Js the attention of tha
nouie. His sentences arotersaand
epigrammatic, and are directly to the
point. He novor falters for a phraso
the words fliw easily and smoothly
'rom bis lips; Iii9 gestures are Duro-
piiate and graceful, and he is ono of
the most perfect orators fn the Hooao
although its youngest Membar. He
ha3 a wonderful fucultv of ridicule and
sarcasm which he nsea without coarse
neas, bat with decided effect. Keen
and quick in his observation, no
weakness of an oponent tsc3pcs him,
and 00 'defect ia an argument which
he speaks ib snffared to g) by nn
tonahed. Thrsa xnaiities. added to
that other and still farer-qnally of
speaking briefly und pointedly, on the
subject matter under consideration,
milia li'is remarks in the House of
pmsral ir.tereo; for all know that
whon Maro sneaks he will say some
thing He 13 now nerving hhj first
term in tbe General Assembly, but it
certainly will not be his Ia3t, if hia
constituent of the Damocratio party
in Bnt'er havi as just an appresiatioa
of his ne;'u!ne6S and ability as his
fellow ilembjrs have. He is one of
thaso yoiing meu vihom it is safe to
predict that thoy will bo. haard from
pgaoj. In tho opinion of tha writter
of th a sketch, whose acquaintanca
with its eubject is no more intimate
than that of seeing him in his seat
daily and observing his course, he
will make as brilliant a record ia his
lagislativeand professional career, as
those who know Lira Lost anticipate.
El 'A man fifty years old, who has
his hair regularly, will have thus re
moved from his bead, over thirteen
feet, or twice bis own length. Of
the beard twenty years' shaving takes
off eight feet. This cutting and shav
ing ia attended with a great increase
of tho secretion of tbe juices which
nourish the hair, a part of which is
lost bv evaporation from the stamps
of the hairs. Bicbat, the celebrated
French physiologist, attributes the
snporior strength of the sncieuta U
tbn cutora of wearing tho hard. .
