TllK legal effect of the iateainnesty
proclamation is lieing discussed ex
teiiKiveiy, ami the important fact es
tablished, by judicial decisions and
the usages of all civilized govern
ments, Is, that amnesty restores all
offenders embraced within its provis
ions to their legal Ktatus before the
commission of the oli'onsc. This
point Is ho clearly set tied that none
will question it who are not resolved
to do wrong in defiance of law. In
this country, tho light of the Presi
dent to pardon is a constitutional
right, and the right of tho pardoned
to its full benefit as settled by law,
can only lie barred by the most bare
If wo aro not mistaken, when the
Missouri test oatli was before the Su
preme Court, it decided that amnesty
restored all the original rights of the
persons amnestied, and that tho test
;it It was unconstitutional, in part,
because It was designed to deprive
pardoned citizens of the right to vote.
Itefore tho war, tho status of the
South, was tlie enjoyment of the
rigid of suffrage, and sinee it is an es
tablished fact that amnesty restores
every right, onco deemed forfeited,
every whito man in the South, of the
proper age, and not excepted from the
benefit of the pardon, has a clear le
gal right to vote.
To tills it. will be objected that the
right of suffrage is determined by
Stale law's, and that in Tennessee, the
prohibition, being the work of the
Legislature, is of higher authority
than the dictum of tho Federal Kx
ceutive. In reply, wo assert that the
presumed offense of tho people of
Tennessee was not against the State,
but against the Federal ( ioyornmont.
The people constitute tho State, mid
it is a novel idea that tho Slate can
commit treason against itself. And
if a State can not offend against Itself,
the disfranchisement of Hie majority
by tho minority, Willi the aid of fed
eral bayonets, is crime so heinous, a
wrong so intolerable, that .submission
coa-.es to bo a political virtue. And
Miicc it is undeniable that the amnes
ty lias all (lie effect of a federal en
actment and Is therefore the supreme
law, resislance to it by the bogus
Legislature is rebellion against the
Federal (i.ivei nnieiil, which is bound
to protect by force if necessary, every
citizen In the exercise of tho rights
restored by said amnesty.
It is contended, and rigidly too,
that if a foreigner merely llle bis in
teiilloiit.i hecome a citizen ami on
ins return to his native lain! is coii
wrlpteil or otherwise molested, it is
the duly of the I'nited Stall's to right
