Wednesday Morning, February 26,1868. A li allied Conopiinior. “The government of our fathers" stands the test. We have a constitution that Is good tor any emergency. Usurpers, Rebels and would-be autocrats do not prosper uuder it, but come to grief and dismay before thtir piaus are fuily matured. Rebellion failed to destroy it. That was test number one, and perfectly satisfactory. But there was another peril through which the country bad not passed—impeachment. Your Radical Con gress dare not try that, said the sceptics, tor it is a measure of such terrible import that it will shake the very pillars of the Republic. Blit the inevitable time lias come. The body to which the duty is intrusted by the Consfi tion has taken the preliminary steps toward impeachment, and if the life of Thaddeus Stevens is spared he will stand at the bar of me senate ana as the agent of the Represen tatives of the people impeach Andrew John son of high crimes and misdemeanors. This is certain. What then ?—Do the Heavens tall ? Not at all. A score ot men assemble in Philadelphia and pledge themselves to the support of the President, but when a propo sition is made to give effect to these protesta tions by appropriate action they “ separate in confusion.” Brooks threatens the House with woes innumerable it an attempt is made to suspend the President during the trial. But he had first learned that it had been decided not lo proceed in that manner.— This being the case, the House has Mr. Brooks' gracious permission to go on: bo only requires that they shall not violate any pro vision of the constitution, pledging biui3cif and Isis associates to non-resistance, is his be hests in this respect are observed. -Mr. Johnson must be the most thoroughly disappointed individual on the continent. In stead of coming promptly to his support, the Democratic leaders look upo.i his last freak of madness with anything hut approval. His continuance in office was indispensable to tire support of the very slender hope of success in next fall’s election which they cherish. They love him not, but just now he is a necessary tool for them. In his great anxiety to serve them, he has spoiled ail their plans, got him self impeiched, and suffers all the pains with out being able to hope tor any of the rewards of martyrdom. The masses will not move in his support. There are rumors of detection in his Cabinet. The Ibunooratjc leaders scowl upon him. Gen. Grant will not niay-bisJtje-^ > gal orders. Gen. Grant’s subordinates will obey only those commands which are trans mitted to them by the General-in-Chief. The Xavy Department, too, is obedient to lawbut insubordinate toward the usurper. The only naval officer from whom Johnson could hope for any assistance in this emergency has sig nified his intention of supporting Congress. In a matter of so much importance it is im possible to tell, of course, wbat may happen to change the aspect of affairs, but from all . present appearances it would seem that be fore the Ides ol March President Johnson will cease to occupy his present position, and that his forced abdication will be the occasion of so little regret or sympathy as to render ap plicable to him the old rhyme: Andrew Johnson, here he lies; Nobody laughs, nobody cries: Where be has gono and how he fares, Nobody knows, and nobody cares. The Insane Hospital. We liave before us the report of the Com missioners of Investigation ol the Insane Asylum, appointed last winter by the Legis lature, and the Memorial of Tobias Lord to the Governor and Council on the Insane Asylum. Mr. Lord, as is well known, gave much attention to securing the appointment of the Commsisioners last winter, and aided them in the performance ot their duties during the year. He does not l'eel satisfied with their conclusions. Messrs. Albert G. Jewett, Jared Fuller and James M. Deering, who constituted the board of investigation, state that after patient and faithful attention to the subject they find no evidence of per sonal ill-treatment of patients by Dr. Har low or of ill-treatment by attendants un punished by the Superintendent when made known to him. Second, they find that “fla grant abuses” have been committed by per sons holding subordinate positions in the institution, but that such instances have been occasional rather than general. They reach their conclusions from the testimony of persons formerly insane, and express the opinion that such testimony should be re ceived with some degree of caution. They hold that persons guilty of abusing patients should be held to answer in a court of law, and that it is the duty of the Superintend ent and the Trustees “to especially let the patients uuderstand that no attendant will be allowe 1 to ill-treat them with impunity.” The only recommendation made by the Commis sioners which appears to be expiessly intend ed to prevent the further occurrence of out rages upon patients is embraced in the fol lowing proposed amendment of the laws re lating to the Hospital: ‘'The Board of Trus tees shall be reorganized as follows: To con sist of nine members instead of six, three of whom shall he physicians. One of said Board shall visit the Asylum every month, three shall visit quarterly, and the whole hoard annually." Mr. Lord conceives that the report of which we have given a brief abstract, is de fective owing to the fact that none of the tes timony upon which it is founded is laid be fore the Legislature. He accordingly, in his Memorial, gives the testimony ot a large number of persons who were examined, most of them, like himself, having been at some time imuates of the Hospital. With the running commentary of Mr. Lord, inter polateifhetween the testimony of different witnesses, the Memorial is calculated to raise a doubt as to whether the Commissioners were justified in making use ot so guarded language in stating that they had discovered the existence of abuses in the Asylum. He especially objects to the expression of a want of confidence in the testimony of patients who had been but recently discharged, and who appear on the records of the institution as “recovered,” especially as they often corroborate each other and aie sustained by the evidence of a tew individu als who have never been patients. Indeed, it does seem that Mr. Lord is not unreason able in objecting to the summary disposition made of the testimony of all the patients by Dr. Harlow’s declaring, as an “expert,” that they were of unsound mind, when at the same time he acknowledges that in some in stances his inlormation in regard to them is derived solely from hearsay. A man, who, like Mr. Lord, is able to obtain in support of his sanity the testimony of a great number of highly respectable and prominent individ uals and who is so far trusted by his neigh bors as to be elected by them to the most important office within their gift, may with reason object to being thrust aside with the remark that his case is “melancholia, w ith exaltation lonowing. We have neither time nor space to go fully into an examination of the interesting and im portant subject which is again brought promi nently topublic attention by the two documents to which we have referred. We have merely aimed.to give what seem to be the conclu sions ot the parties holding somewhat diver gent views respecting the management ol one of our public institutions. The one point up on which all parties agree is this: There hare been and are abuses connected with the man agement ot the Insane Hospital at Augusta. The one point upon which the public ought to agree is that there should be no halt-way measures. “Iteforni it altogether should be the motto in a matter of so vital importance to a class demanding of their more fortunate fellow men the tcmlerest care and sympa'hy. —A Cincinnati courtezan has tried five times to poison herself, and five times has the stomach pump rescued her. 1'iu) Haro Kiver. All along the Saco river, from its* source to its mouth, an fertile lands and beaiUilnl scenery. Perhaps on no river in our State are there better fanning lands than are those in the Immediate vicinity of this river all along its course. The soil ot its intervales is so rich naturally that it needs but very little improvement to pul it in the best condition tor growing grain or grass. rrobabiy many or oui readers are not a ware of the great amount of lumbering tbat has been done and is now doing on tlds river. Fitty yeavs ago the large tracts of woodland on its banks seemed almost inex haustible, but with the mills tbat have been built, and the extensive manufacture ol ‘ box shooks ’ and “headings.” the linn Iter that comes down now is comparatively small, show ing that the briskness of tins trade is begin ning to tell on the for ests up river. Although this lact is evident to ail, the enterprise ol the business men slackens not, auil the num ber ol boxes put up litis winter exceeds, or at least equals tire product of any previous sea son. A great deal ol the lumber used in win ter, is purchased inland and hauled to the mills during sledding, and there is not a ma jestic pine standing any where within the range of civilization, hut what has had the greedy eyes of lumbermen fixed upon it time and again. 1 nis is not right, we don’t like to see our soil made barren to put money iu the pockets of Cuban millionaires. In the forests of our Stale, is an everlasting source of wealth, and the inauuiaeture should not exceed the growth. It is time now that our great water privileges were U3ed tor other manufacturing purposes, as are those of Massachusetts, Con necticut and Rhode Island. Of course in the manufacture of the yearly growth the lum ber business would be very extensive, and with other branches of business, play an Im portant part in increasing the wealth of our State. But as it is now going on, business will soon begin to decrease in these plaees, instead of increasing with the population as it ought to do. In order to induce capitalists to make use of these great privileges and to draw their at tention to the excellent chances lor invest ment, the citizens of the villages must show proper spirit and move in these matters. At West Buxton, on the Saco river, by the en terprise and interest manifested by the resi dents iu and arouud this village, woolen fac tories have been erected and in operation for some years; and but for the fire that laid them all in ashes three years ago, they would have proved a good investment. As it is they have been rebuilt and besides Mr. Oliver Tracey, of that village has constructed, at a 'cSSI «f-$ip,000, another large .woollen mill which is now neaPfcjoady to be put in oper ation. This mill after it la yill double the busine33 ol the place. At Bar Mills, six miles below West Bux ton, where the Portland & Rochester rail road crosses the river, there are water privi leges lying idle, which, taking into considera tion the location, would be invaluable if put to use. And in this village ara many enter prising men who would do the right thing if properly s.arled. In the year 1775 the fitst mill was built at this place by Shubacl Wood mau, Pwu! Woodman and others, and ever since tbit time there lias been a continual consumption ol lumber—oilier mills having l>een built and operated at a later date, by Kilis B. Usher, Sewall Woodman, Stephen Berry and Charles McKeunoy. Ono mils below Bar Mills are the famous Salmon Falls, where, if it were not lor the high ledge on each side of the river, would be a capital chance for factories of any kind— there being a tail oi about one hundred feet here in a distance of half a mile. A number of years ago a Boston company purchased considerable land around these Falls, and built a (lain, which od account of bad calculation in its construction, was carried away at high water. This company expended about $40, 000 here hut socn alter this ill luck sold out to Samuel Bradley, Esq., who soon after sold to the Water Power Company of Saro. Since this first attempt nothing has been done with this great privilege and there is a waste of power here, that nature has made of suffi cient strength to carry a dozen factories. We hope at no distant day to see a change for the better in the business on this river, and that it will present an appearance of thrift equal to any of equal size in Jfew England. Pauperism, Vagrancy, Crime. A society called the Citizens' Association of Philadelphia, was chartered a year or two ago by the Legislature of Pennsylvania. Its ob ject is to provide a suitable establishment for the reform and care of inebriates. The Leg islature imposed the duty of investigating the causes of pauperism, vagrancy and crime, and the remedies. In the discharge of this duty, the agents ol the association have visited many jails, poor houses and charitable institutions to obtain the information they desired, and the result of their labors and investigations bas been recently laid belore tbe Legislature in an elabc rate report. Tbe association designates the inmates o< these establishments as “ tie poor and dependent population ot the State,” and divides them into classes: First—Pau pers, all who are supported at public expense in work-houses, or otherwise, by overseers ol the poor. Second—That considerable class, moving about, without a house, from county to county, subsisting by petty thieving and beggary, called vagrants. Third—The blind and friendless, deaf and dumb, idiotic and In sane, suppirted by the State in public institu tions. Fourth—Inmates of the House of lteluge. The association has calculated the cast to the public of the support of these people, class by clas3, and the figures are as follows: For the support of the Poor Houses $1,697, 720, making a cost ol $2.07 annually, to each voter in the State. For ‘'lout-door relief $100,370, making 32 cents annually for each voter. The cost of meals furnished, was $54, 150 making 9 cents each to every voter; the gross amount being $20,42,240, $3,08 annual tax on each voter, for the support of the poor. This does not include the cost of “night-lodg ings'’ furnished to multitudes accomodated in that way. The number of inmates of the jails and other prisons of the State is 9116. Tlie cost ol supporting these is $1,464,029, $2.42 annually to each voter. The Report says that fully two-thirds of the pauperism and crime is chargable to in temperance, and sots down the average anuu al cost on this account to each voter at $3.74. For the blind, deaf mutes, idiotic and friend less childen, the proportion ol cost chargable to intemperance is set down rt 20 cents to eaeh voter. The annual total tax on each voter as the result of intemperance, is $3 94. The cost of supporting panpers and criminals made such by intemperance, is $2,204,244. The association thinks that while such vast sums of money, drawn from the sober and industrious classes, are spent in taking care of the effects of intemperance, some ol' it may well he devoted to checking or re moving the cause of it. The London Times, a little while ago,said: We are at a loss to understand that theory ol society which admits what, indeed, !s ab solutely necessary lor our peace and our very existence, that we may aDd must maintain an expensive police to protect us Irom drunk enness, to keep watch at the doors ot pub ic houses (grogshops) to observe the move ments of their chief treqnenters, and to pro tect their victims from being plundered; and that we must also build prisons, and go toother vast costs lor the punishment and correction of offenders who become what they are by drunkenness—admits all this, and then maintains that we ought not to In terfere at all witli the practice itself as to Its liours.lt says, or any other circumstance I The simple consideration that we must do the cure, and that the cure Is very costly and difficult, imposes on us also the duty of prevention, at least as far as is possible. Self preservation requires that we sliouM stop an evil waere we can, if we must stop it some where. _ —The Wisconsin Legislature, which has been in session for over a month, has as yet had only seven hundred b:lls brought before it for consideration.
