Stanton at the head of the War Department, and Jacob Ijolt presiding over the Bu reau of Military Justico. These gentlemen are understood to be Radicals, or at least in sympathy with'thw 'liepnblioan party. Tub lie opinion holds them responsible for President Johnsons's proclama tion, discharging Jefferson Pavis and others with complicity in Pres ident Lincoln's assassinatiou. Why if .Jefferson Davis is in any manner responsible for the murder of our captured .soldiers, lie has nut at least been indicted for that crimo'i Will somebody answer But those two do not monopolize the responsibility. Any oitizen may procure the indictment of a known criminal. Why should not the Union League (Hub have taken up this matter? That Club was forced to uphold loyalty and re press disloyalty. Why should it not have devoted its energies and mean$ to bringing to justice the .1.^1.1. W A dersouvllle and kindred murders V Why should not Col. Van Buren have been charged with the duty of investigating the facts and indict ing the culprits? The Club has fcnowtr for ifi.Jlny months that no indictment has been found against Jeffwson Pavis ex cept for treason. It has known that his counsel liftyc been trying to bring on his trial, or to, got. him be fore some civil tribunal by luuiiAS CORPUS, or in sofaie way iu^rocurc his liberation. IIow can it justify itself—it' it believes Davis guilty of murdering prisonerflr—in doing noth ing to proeurc'hip iH^ietment -tlicft forV' '.. If men nifty he judged by' tlie'l enemies," says l^renticc, how can wc too highly esteem president Andrew Johnson, whose bitterest enemies are CJcn. Butler and Mr. Ashley of Ohio, who ought to be in the blackest penitentiary of the earth, and Gov. Hrowulow, who ought to be in the Oddest peniten tiary of hell." ClMiieli Unity, Utcv The JOURNAL OF COMMJJK^K," in a thoughtful abd Avell-reasoned article 011 this just' now popular theme, expresses the conviction that a very brief examination of the history of creeds' within a few years will satisfy the most ardent wisher for Church union that his de sire cannot be accomplished by hu man devices, but that it needs the interposition of a higher power, in flueneing and .restraining the. hearts of nieii Forms of Church government m!4rA»ged by sinful and erring men (the editor, reminds us) becomes engines of great power. The tempt ation to use the power for other than legitimate purposes is irresi^t able. It is, therefore, highly prob able that tho abseneo of unity is a conservative feature of the Chris tian Church. This is an important consideration. The history uf eliurch organizations has abundantly es tablished the danger of church uni ty. There is perhaps no instance of a single church organization in any one country which has not be come intolerant, and this in mat ters of non-essential faith. The tendency to a union ot church and state is of courso phtiu and well understood. In a country like ours, it, is morally impossible that all denominations of Christians should, .unite in. one church with out tho roBiilt of making that organisation a political machine. We do not frtiuse to regard the con sequent effect on polities and peo ple. Tt is the ,«fl:ect 011 the rlntreh wliieli regarded,, aucl that this would bo demoralizing and fa tal, all must agree. Ilence it is to be doubted whether those who seek church union are directing their energies in a useful channel. They aro rather wasting labor, and Seeking to accomplish that which would do harm rather .than. good. #1 50 PER ANNUM. WHOLE NO- 384 I'tnbarrasiiig-. A gentlemanly agent of a certain city was collecting fares from the pissengers of a very full 'bus one Homing.

Ilis cash was short that meriting t^ie fare of one passenger. CJrcelcj" and l*Iiillij»8. No man has denounced Horace Greeley in moro bitter terms for the act of bailing Jeff. Davis, than Wendell Phillips. But Greeley has turned the tables upon him beauti fully, by reproducing portions of tjie speeches made by Phillips in 1865. In his speech at the .meeting of the American anti-slavory soeicty, held at Cooper Institute, May 12, 1805, Phillips said: The idea of a jury itnpannelcr! to try Jefferson Davis as a traitor would be to me, in theJanguage of the age of Shakspcare, "a, most lamentable and tragical comedy." I should as soon try adders by a jury, and claim the benefit of habeas corpus for rat tle snakes. I shall never eonscnt lo the death of Jefferson Davis until I fear his life. He is weaker alive, a ri diculous fugitive, than dead and buried in the syiiipathiefi of millions. Let him live then. I once said of-John Brown: "Virginia dared not let hnu live." No man, with inv coiHent, suau ua\e ii. 10 say i« serenely secure nation, "It dared not let Davis live." In his speech at Cooper Institute, Oct. 25, 1805, Phillips saidc do not want any man hanged.— Jeff. Davis will uevcrget his deserts this side of Calvin's or Dante's hell. But do not wunt him to get his deserts hero. The president may givjc 4uw back his plantation for all 1110. 1 do not believe onr people are capable if the double virtue of punishing traitors and enfranchise ing the black man. So I will com promise they may set till the trait ors free if they will onlytoufranohise blacks [Applause.] .. u" At the Brooklyn Academy of Mu sic, Feb 13, l^GG, Mr. PluUi.ps saidi,. Well, our president said once that traitors were to be punished. He has not punished a traitor. He nev er will. I, for one, do not ask him to. The hour has gone. Eight months of life such as we have been living, which is eight and eighty of common national existence, have floated by since it was possible.— When .James T. sent Jtaleigh to the scaffold, it did not stir colder horror through a large part of the civilized world than in America would be stirred to-day, if after an imprisonment of a dozen months, .Jefferson Pavis was sent to the scaftold. The action of government has closed tho door of the scaffold. It should be said in palliation of this apparent inconsistency in the course of Phillips, that at the time the speeches quoted from were made, the immediate restoration of the Union was a general expectation, and the radicals were not supported in their programme by an organized military power over the south. Phil lips was accordingly courting the good opinion of the southern people and playing the part of a christian philanthropist. The radicals having since subjugated the south, Phillips now prefers the vote of a butcher.— Milwaukee News. IN Virginia a State? .The Radicals say 110, because, when Virginia joined the Confedera cy, she lost all her rights as a State. But Virginia has had ever since the the rebellion broke out, and has now a United States District Judge the same as any Northern State, and two Senators in the United, State!? Senate. As a State, Virginia gave her consent, so the Radicals allege, to the formation of the new State of West Virgnrhrout of a portion of tho territory under her jurisdiction. More than this, the United States Supreme Court is now entertaining a suit in which the State of lrgin ia is the party plaintiff, claiming tho counties of Berkley and .lefter son, over which West Virginia pro tends to exercises lawful jurisdic- tion. These facts would seetu to settle the question, if anything can, as to the present statehood of Vir ginia. i 'fltodcgtF* "Nothing is more amiable than tfuo modesty, and nothing mora contempt ible than that which is false: the one guards virtue, the other betray* it. True modesty is ashamed to do any thing that is repugnant to right rea son talse modesty is ashamed to do anything that is opposite to the hu mor of those with whom the party converses. True modesty avoids everything that is crimnal false modesty everything that is unfash ionable the latter is only a gene&l, undetermined instinct—the former is that instinct limited and circum bed by the rules of prudence ahd religion. Blect oi" a Pardon. During the war a man who wa# convietcd and sentenced to fine And imprisonment, for pcrpetratingboiftn ty and enlistment frauds, was par doned by President Lincoln, and now claims that the pardon not only released him from imprisonment, but also entitles him to a restoration of the tine he was compelled to pay.— The Attorney General ha? decided in favor of this man's claim, and now that the precedent is established, it is thought numberless similar cases will occur and .help deplete the Treasury. A darkey's wife undertook to tun away with another chap the otibcr day, but was caught in the act and licked by her husband, after which ho said io her: "No-w den, take dat and git wid dat nigga, an' ef you* eber cum back to me, I'll gin you wuss an' more ob it.

He says: "IfwcTaay be permitted to make a suggestion, it is, that when the photograph touip tation is "played out," the Trib une should give "a lock of Mr Greeley's hair" for every new sul) scriber.

The Albany Argus sayi:—*"It seems a mockery that men assemble in this state to lay the toumlatious of a free goveriRnetit, and define the limitations ofdelegated power, when the -most solemn guarantees of per sonal right are erased in o^her states by the bayono'i, of the soldier.

That "diamond pin"—like the "spoons" in New Orleans—has mys teriously disappeared. If there is anything in the shape of silver or diamonds lost, Butler or Baker are likely to know something about it. The Judiciary Comm ittoe closed its extra session June 4th, liaviu^ decided that the charges against Mr. Johnson do not warrant his im peachment. This decision was gen erally anticipated.

The Judiciary Committee found evidence to justify no such charges.—Timifc^"- Ituleed!
