The Slnln i a i-ourr.
We publish to-day the comments of the
press of Maine, as far as heard from last week,
upon the release of JetForxon Davis. There
arc one or two papers which wc have mislaid
(among them the Lewistou Journal, which se
verely condemned tho liichmoud maliceuvre)
but the array of opinions which wc present is
sufficiently notable, both for extent and varie
ty. The Bangor Democrat speaks of Davis as
“a distinguished gentleman and eminent
statesman,” and is evidently quite prepared to
adopt the counsel of the New York Day-Book,
and make the late prisoner a candidate lor the
Presidency. The Aryus tolls us incidentally
that tho Southern people “hate u«, and have
every reason to halo us,” but thinks Horace
Greeley has done a wise aud proper thing. It is
interesting to observe how uniformly Mr. Gree
ley’s act is condemned by the men with whom
ho has generally been in sympathy and praised
by those who never praised him before. Mr.
Greeley is iu the habit of assuring people who
differ from him, that their opiuions will meet
with ready sympathy iu every bar-room and
bawdy-house in tho country. This is not a
logically conclusive argument, as Mr. Greeley
will probably discover now that it is brought
to bear upon him. Indeed ho already accepts
his place among the publicans aud sinners and
retorts upon his accusers by calling them
“howling Pharisees.”
An expression of discontent, sometimes
flaming into anger, at the conduct of tlio Gov
ernment, appears almost without exception
in the columns of those journals which steadi
ly maintained the national cause during the
war. Even those papers which have inclined
to the President’s side, in the controversy be
tween Mr, Johnson and the Congress of the
United States, denounce this shameful release
of a man who as the representative of a con
spiracy which cost the nation so many precious
lives, deserved a thousand deaths. It is a mis
take to speak of Jefferson Davis au us alleyeil
traitor awaiting trial. lie is entitled to no
presumption of innocence. It is au insult to
common sense, to say in his caso licit until bis
guilt is proved he must he treated as presum
ably innocent; that he is entitled to a speedy
trial or release from imprisonment. The act
which the constitution of the United States
calls treason Jefferson Davis notoriously com
mitted. Before the world he levied war against
the Uuited States. When he was captured
two years ago he was not a suspected but a no
torious traitor. Technical proof is out of placu
in such a case; It is not necessary to summon
witnesses to prove that the sun rose yesterday.
Jefferson Davis was entitled then to a speedy
trial before a court-martial, to a short shrift, a
veasouahly long rope, and a traitor s grave
It was thought thou and has beeu thought
since, that a great state trial before tbe liigh
est tribunal iu the land would lie more impres
sive and dignified. That may be. Jefferson
Davis had no right to demaud such a trial, hut
if the American people choose to test the effi
cacy of their laws, it is their privilege so to do.
For the laws would really be ou trial, instead
of tbe prisoner. Everybody kuows that Jef
ferson Davis levied war ou tbe United States.
The only question is, whether our laws are so
drawn that he can he convicted cf his notori
ous crime. That question it might be well to
settle, aud if lie should escape through any
loophole it would be something gained to dis
cover aud stop that hole for the benefit of his
imitators hereafter. If Davis is to he turned
loose without a trial, If as generally believed,
wo have seen the end of the matter, the res
ponsibility for such a dereliction will assured
ly lie traced home, and the parties thereto will
be well and faithfully remembered. Uninflu
enced by personal hostility to Jefferson Davis,
without a touch of vindictive passion, the peo
ple who have suffered so much by his crime
have constantly expected that henceforth that
crime should he marked by the strougi st con
demnation, and they will not patiently consent
to he Cheated of the expectation.

Tuesday evening Judge Kelley, while peace
ably addressing the citizens of Mobile, was in
f•-> >-•>I>f«■<] l*.v MiNtcil riolcr* ini-1 dr»v**»i <»•«»»»»
tlie iilatform amid a shower of pistol shots.
Whether his language was discreet or injudi
cious, conciliatory or defiant, has nothing to do
with the case. He bail a right to discuss ua
tioual topics iu his own way, wherever the ua
tioual tiag tlics. The speaker is uiie aud the
hearer is another, and if the party of t he sec
ond part is dissatisfied he has perfect right to
go away. A pistol shot is a cowardly reply to
au argument. Mobile was disgraced by the
riot iu tbe eyes of all right-minded men.
Wednesday a'teruoou the details of the alTuir
appeared iu the Northern newspapers. Thurs
day morning the Argun, suppressing the tesli
nouy of tho reporter of the New Turk Herald,
who was au eyowituess of the sceue, comment
ed ou the aliair as follows:
The bloody tragedy which we believe to he in
store for the Mouth lias already commenced at
Mobile. The villainy taught liy Judge Kelley
aud his followers is beiug executed; and the
Judge may find visited upon his own precious
potsou the hatred with wuich he has been fill
ing the Southern heart. We foresee massacre
—fiendish massacre of whites and blacks
■like throughout the South. Must of the ne
groes are aimed with pistols aud long, sharp
knives; and when they ate deeply enough im
bued with the spirit of hatred and revenge, as
instilled into their hearts by their radical
teachers, they will strike lor muidcr aud
rapine.
It is asufiicieut reply to these extraordinary
misrepresentations, to say that the Mayor of
Mobile invited Judge Kelley to remain and
speak again, utTeriug him the protection of all
good citizeus. If the lVuusylvauian orator
had been merely au iuceudiary, stirring up
evil passions aud preparing the way for scenes
of violence, would he have been invited to re
maiu iu Mobile aud continue his work? The
question admits of but one answer, but if any
further doubt were possible it would be remov
ed by the resolutions adopted at the public
meeting of the citizeus of Mobile held Thurs
day evening. Those resolutions fix the stigma
of the “unqualified disaprobation" of the as
sembly upon—not Judge Kelley, there is not
a word of censure for him—but upon the rioters.
The opinion is turther expressed that the dis
turbances were unpremeditated, and that the
people of Mobile are not disposed to interfere
with any man’s freedom of speech. Accepting
this statement as sincere ou the part of the
better portion of the community, it only re
mains to be said, that such au assault with
fire-arms could not have occurred iu any North
ern city unless premeditated, and that the mis
erable consequences of what the Mobile people
call au “accidental excitement” are directly
chargeable to the cowardly practice of carrying
cencealed weapons. Tho state of society is im
proving, wc hope, at the South,but there is
still room for amendment iu this aud other
particulars.

IKrom the Zion's Advocate, May 15.]
Of course the action of the presiding judge
lias the sauciiou of the Executive; and pel haps
we ought not to he surprised at anything done
by that officer of the Government Vet the
people of the loyal States will recall with in
dignation and wonder the emphatic denuncia
tions of the Executive against treason and
traitors, at his entrance upon office,—and com
pare those sharp words with subsequent crimi
nal leniency towards the chief oH'enders. Il is
strange, moreover, to see the weak pity and ill
timed sympathy manifested by some Northern
men towards this uurepentani rebel. The edi
tor ot the New York Tribune was ohc oi tlio
first to oiler hail for the criminal; and this
new exhititimof misdirected sympathy l,.r
Southern traitors will reconcile many well
wishers of the ladical editor lu his loss of a scat
in the National Senate.
(From the Eastern Argus, May 15.)
Probably no man has been more eorJiallv
bated liy the Southern people than Horace
Greeley. Yet we see him clasped to the heart
of this very people because of a simple act of
noble generosity toward their chief. Horace
Greeley, who has seen Hie day when In- would
have been mobbed in Richmond for his vilifi
cation of the South is literally bugged to-day
by men crying for joy, and all liecause he l as
put his name upon the hail bond of Jcliersou
bavis, and shaken hands with that gentleman
in open court.
Shall this lesson pass* and teach us nothing?
Or shall it show us—more vividly Ilian words
can tell the temper of the South ? They hate
us, and they have every icasoii to bate us.
They used to hale Horace Greeley: but his onu
act of kindness has made them his friueds lor
ever.
(From tlio fiockland Democrat, May 15.]
Tim removal of Jeflcrsou l>avis front bis
quarters at Portress Monrue, occupied by luiu
two years,and hia transfer to the soil ot "Old
Virginia,” excites scarcely a ripple iu the pub
lic mind. Such a change a fleets the rebel
chief and his intimate lriends aud relations
more than it appears to anybody else. With
the certainty ot his inability to do any more
harm lias decreased the public anxiety as to
his late.
[From the Bangor Democrat, May IS.]
At length the great majority of the people of
tha country will he gratified to Learu that tlio
ridiculous and wicked force ol' keeping a dis
tinguished gentleman and eminent statesman
in prison for two long years is at an end, and
that Jelfersou Davis lias been released from his
long and weary confinement.
[From the Bangor Whig, May 1C.]
The least that might have been expected un
der the circumstances, was the exhibition efa
decorous motlestg on tlio part both of Davis
aud his friends-a silent acceptance ot freedom
by this leader of those who have caused the
slaughter ol ?00,000 of our loyal brothers aud
sous. A penitential procession, it any,rather
than an ovation! and that ovation headed, of
all lm u, by Horace Greeley! We can say no
more. We caunot do justice to litis subject.
[From the Bangor Tunes, May 16.J
Who is responsible ior this state oi tilings, or
whether it is the result ol causes to he traced
to no individual origin, we are not prepared to
determine. Nor do we question that uil is lor
the best. But of one thing we feel sure, viz:
it there is such a crime as treasou the South
ern leaders in the rebellion must have been
guill.v of it—flagrantly guilty, and without the
excuse of attempting to overthrow established
institutions for the purpose of introducing bet
ter. And of another thing we feel equally sure,
viz: that a treason so gigantic, so hellish in its
results, and perpetrated in the interests of an
institution indescribably wicked in all its rarn
itteations,— a treason that inaugurated four
years ol internecine war, caused rivers ofloyal
blood to flow, covered the whole land witli em
blems of woe—a treason that enacted ail the
tile nameless horrors of Libby, ol Anderson, of
Belle Isle, ought to go into our legal history in
nil lodi'r.iis outlines, with tlic mil penalty
pfononneed on at least one of the guiltiest par
ticipants. At the present time there is mil on
record a single capital trial for this crime of
treason, and the clumens are that there never
will he. This may be as it should he,but there
are thousands on thousands of true, loyal
hearts who will find It difficult to so believe.
[From the Belfast Age, May 16.J
The loyal people of the country demand that
there shall he an end of this ltav.s perform
ance which has been going oti for some two
years, during which they have been unab.e to
distinguish whether it has been tragedy or
farce. If treason is to be considered a crime,
they waut to see it made apparent by tryin"’
the man who alwve all others lias been instru
mental in bringing all the calamity and woe
which the country has suffered upon it. Late
investigations have revealed the lact that the
horrible sufferings which our prisoners under
went, were all inflicted by hts order for the
purpose of compelling an exchange of prison
ers Oil rebel terms. Hanging is tooeasy a pun
ishment for so inhuman a monster; aim the
loyal people are looking with no complacent
eye to the delays and suifts that are resorted
to in order to screen him from justice.
[Freni the FarnJn^ton Chronicle May, 16.1
Tliis infamous traitor who richly deserved
hanging within the first twenty-four hours al
ter liis capture, is at liberty to travel in tri
umph through a country, which sacrificed half
a million ol lives,to save the*governmeut which
he and his associates sought to destroy. For
the credit ill’ the country, wc are glad to seo
the approaching finale of so stupendous a fraud
upon the patieuee and forbearance of the na
tion.
[From lho Augusta Stuxdaril, May 17.]
It is a matter of surprise to many, that Hor
ace Greeley and other prominent Republicans
of New York aud Philadelphia, should take
the trouble to go all the way to Richmond, tor
the purpose of giving hail to Mr. Davis, and
many questions are asked as to what it can
mean.
Rumor has it that political considerations
led to this singular proceeding, an arrange
ment haviug been made among leading radi
cals to run Mr. Davis for either President or
Vice President, upon the radical ticket, with
the belief that he would be sure to carry the
Southern States, aud thereby secure the suc
cess of the ticket.
[From the Kennebec Journal, May 17.J
When, after his capture in unmanly apparel,
Jefferson Davis assumed the role of the noble
State prisoner, and found it necessary for the
proper assertion of his dignity to refuse spoon
victuals, there was hardly a division of opinion
as to the proper disposition to he made ot him.
But the injured innocent could not wait forev
er, aud as was his constitutional right, he de
manded that some reason should ho shown why
he was restrained of his liberty. Ot course
there was none^ and he was set free. A cruel
sheriff, as a civil officer, then arrested him on a
charge of treason, which was admitted to l>e a
badahle offence, costing only a President’s sal
ary for a single term, which his sympathizers,
of whom Horace Greeley was proud to be the
tirst, quickly furnished, and the great and no
ble man retired amid a shower oHw»uquets and
the vivas of the people to his sumptuous apart
ments in the Capital ot the Confederacy. It is
hardly expected that anything further will to
heard from his case.' To prosecute the matter
further would bo resented by a great number
of people as unnecessary cruelty to the uufoi
tunate.
iFrom the Rockland Gazette. May 17.)
As to the treason of Jeff Davis, it is litt.e, it
any, worse than the treason ot other prominent
rebels. It is for the cruel ies aud baronrities
that were perpetrated, without ex. use, under
the “government” of which he was the head,
that he should be chiefly execrated Kvcn if ,
as a man, ho has repented of his guilt tor these,
of which we have no evidence, as a criminal
and the head of traitors he cannot justly Iior
safely he treated with respect and courtesy by
loyal citizens.
[From the Biddeford Journal, May 17.)
Jetf Davis has beeu admitted to bail in the
sum of$100,000. Horace Greeley is miking a
fool of himself bv his obsequious attendance
upon Jetf, in order to get notoriety.
