THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH. -PHILADELPHIA, FRIDAY, MARCH 30, 186G.
THE NEW YORK PRESS. Editorial Opinions of the Leading Journals Upon the Most Import a'nt Topics of the Hour. COKTILID BVT.RY DAT JOB EVENlJjQ TELEGRAPH. Tlie Cattle riopnc. From Vie T)ilunt. Our In-1 accounts of too cattle plague In Eng land slow that up 10 tho 3d of March, during tbo f ix months in which the epidemic has fo lar prevailed, 187,051) cattle have been infected, of which 117,Cr)4 have diod directly from the dis ease, and 26,135 have been killed by way of pre ventinR It? sprrnd. But this statement is only the inspector's report, and docs not pretend to give the whole number of cattle which have per. i flicd since the beginning of tho post in tho latter days of Aupust. A partial plaeue of tho same character broke out also among the sheep eoroe months ago; but we are not distinctly informed of the extent of its ravages. It ap pears tliat the pencral epidemic had increased steadily up to the latest mall from England, every step of its march becoming more alarm ing. The number of deaths, which averaged a thousand or more per week in Scptr-mbor, increased from 1700 to 2000 in October. Up to Kovcuibcr, 17,073 animals bad been attacked, of Mhich only 848 could recover or would be allowed to recover. By the middle of November, 20,000, or, nl was ntted,5one in a thousand had perished; and up to LV'Ceniber, 40,00(lhad caught tho disease. By the 1st oi January the number reached 7.'J,.r4J ; 7ii83 dying in one week: and in the lust weeK of January, 1)243. By the middle ol January, 107,0!i8 had been attacked, only 15,027 remain ing under treatment. The February papers pic ture tho plague as positively awful in tho country, and by the middle of the month, 160,000 cattle had become in lected, and all but 40,000 had died. At this writing, the number of victims cannot lull short ol 200,000. live sixths of which have perished absolutely. Thece are onlv the Cattle Inspector's figures, whilo it is possible that the entire live stock killed by the plague is much nearer to 300,000. We can have no idea ol tlie number of beeves prematurely killed and sold ut from one to two shillings per pound by the butchers, lu oraer to tave ootli meat and money. But from all these facts, it Is plain, in the gravest sense, that our neighbor, John Bull, has boon rapidly losing tfesh. Several opinions have been current in England as to the origin of the pestilence, borne of ttio country farmers satisfied themselves in tracing it back to tht! cow-keepers of the metropolitan districts (a class more or less kindred with our own metropolitan swill-milk makers), and there stopped inquiry. That the dispose was imported from Iiusia, and communicated from the large centres, is, however, the more accepted belief. It is remarked that in Russia animals are in general treated with greater hardship and dis comfort than in any other part of Europe. But we have no doubt that in the crowded cattle mar kote of England there was every condition to invite the disease. London periodicals have related, from time to time, those mysteries of atrocity which, in the conveying, driving, and killing of fevered and exhausted tlesh, make up a part of the popular bee! supply of London. The fact seems consequent and obvious a timely warning, too, against the dangers of our own slaughter-house system that in all the earlier stages of the plague the greatest ravages occurred in the metropolitan districts. We are a believer in that trite, patent maxim which declares that there is ho reason what ever for epidemic in nature; but if cholera breaks out among men who are packed and penned together in artificial pest-holes, no wonder, then, that the plague will at last infect the brutes which, in a hundred name less ways, , undergo untold miseries that the barbarous indiiierentism of civilization cannot aftord to inflict directly upon itself. The wretched contact - of huddling, driving, and stifling crowds of insane and distempered animal!1, is conserved to give a taste to our common beef. It would not surprise ua to hear that all the unnecessary torture which beef uudeigoes before it is eaten reacts, in some measure, upon the eater. Inspectors of meat and milk have only a superficial oflice. Laws against cruelty to animals, and societies for its detection and prevention, are urgently needed. As jet no decided measure have been taken in England to check or stay the epidemic. Pro fessor tiarogee,' it appears, predicted its wide spread from the start, unless an immediate resort was had to the pole-ax, the favorite Dutch aud Prussian mode of extirpation; but this appa rently cruel and costly, but now (it seems) ne cessary method, has not, till of late, gained the mind of the authorities. The Professor further argued that, as the disease proceeds from con tact, the transportation of cattle in large num bers should be at once stopped on all the large railways, and that cattle sales and beef shows should be suspended in the market towns an advice followed in puit by local communities, which have even gone so far as to close the ordi nary live-meat markets for months, giving wide room to the vegetanan doctrine, and a text and sway of which it had not dreamed. But It was not till about a month ago that the suggestions of Professor Gamgee and others took shape in a bill presented in Parliament by Sir John Grey. One feature ol this bill, providing for the com pensation of cattle-owners by the collection of innd-mtcs, gave rise to a debate in which lirigut and Mill took part against the stubborn defend ers ot that oppressive privilege and curse of the English economy, tho law of primogeniture. The aristocracy, who are mainly the land owners, and can rent their lauds at artificial prices, propose, in short, to lay the added ex pense of the plasnie principally on the impove rished farming classes of lessees, who are the greatest losers by the calamity, and whom, too lrequently, its ravages have cut short of ability to pay their year's rent. Now, it is vigorously insisted that' the land monopolists or nobility should take their duo, proportionate land-share of the burden which threatens to fall bo heavily on the farmer; and thus the cattle-plague, it it lasts long enough, promises to assail with some etl'ect the enormous immunity ol hereditary ten ure in Eneland. All methods of treating the plague have thus far proved ineffectual, except in u few cases. Allopathy and hoinu.'opathy have been explored in vain lor a curative. Vaccinatlou, after a thorough trial, has tailed. In Holland, where the pest is also at its height, a number of cattle, it is said, have been cured at a very early period of the disease bv the well-known hydropathic practice of rubbing and wet-packing. A Ger man urazir r is renorted to have anulied netro leum to the skill and food ot the animal with preventive success. Finally, an American doc tor undertakes to show that the d'seaae is caused by parasites growing on the skin, and can be checked by a washing ot corrosive sublimate. This theory, which appears wide apart from the experience of English doctors, would link the cattle-plague with tne trichinm disease now ue strovhiff the nork-euters of certain parts of Oer many; but no conclusive sign of the worm has yet been louna in oeei. According to Mr. Townsend Glover, who wrote in November last from Europe, tho disease Is not at all unlike that which was so alarmingly epidemic in Florida some years ago.where cattle were stricken down, after a short sutterlng, In annarentlv 'cood condition." till a post mortem examination proved the contrary. It may be as well to assure ourselves that our own cattle are not exempt in a given contingency, while the rinderped remains a problem and a plagve. Another date from England assures us that new flirures are added to the sum of disasters, in the violent breaking out of the plague among siian T he murrain has now become a more national alarm than even the epidemic of Kenianism; and it remains to be seen what eiTeet toe tormer win nave upuu mo uuguou iuuwm policy. The Fisheries -A Dangerous Question. From the Timet. The other day a telegraphic Item informed us of the fitting out of national vessels to protect the lnlerest9 of American fishermen on tbo coasts of British North Ametlca. A contemporary enu merates seven vessels, carrying eighty six guns, as 'n course of preparation for service in this' "flying squadron." Now, we have tidings from England, on 'the authority of the London Times, which Indicate the approaching departure of a war vessel "to. see that the rights of tne fishery, which revort to the British C rown, tire not infringed upon, and' also to prevent coll'sions btweeM the fishermen ol the Provinces and those of tho United Slates." The veselto be thus r-pecmll.v detailed will be an addition to the powerful force already repre senting England iu those w aters. These preparations on both sl ics may enable some who have pooh-poohPd the termination of reciprocity as a trifling affair, to realize at Mast one of the embarrassing and perilous questions which that event revives. They show taat tho contingencies which were a continual sourco of apprehension up to the period of tho treaty are about again 1o arise, to irritate and perplex both countries; and further, that born countries are adopting measures Identical With these which before the treaty kept the fishing interests ot New England and tho Provinces perpetually Under an apprehension ot hostilities A reference to the treaty, now defunct, is of itself sutlicient to prove the importance with which the question was regarded by contract ing parties. The essential provisions of the treaty were embraced in lour articles, and of these two pertain exclusively to the tish-eries-a circumstance of which the Congres sional opponents ol reciprocity uppear to b profoundly ignorant. Their speeches in the recent debates proceeded wholly on the as sumption that the interchange of commo dities constituted the beginning and th? end of the arrangement between this country aud the Provinces; overlooking the undoubted tact, that by reciprocity we secured lor our fishermen important concessions, and averted a liability to international complications to which in past years the records of the State De partment have borne ample testimony. Into the merits of the controversy as to the lntet and meaning ol the Convention of 1818, we. are not required to enter. For our present purpose, it is enough to know that by the con struction which the British Government, in compliance with the solicitation of the marlumo provinces, fiually undertook to enforce, results were produced which Mr. Webster, as Secretary ot State, in 1862. thus succinctly stated: "The loss of the valuable full fishinc to American fishermen; a complete interruption of the exten sive fishing business of New England, attended by coustant collisions of the most unpleasant and exciting character," entailing ''the involve ment ot the Government in questions of a very serious nature, threatening the peace of tho two countries." Tho report ot Mr. Lorenzo Sabine, pn sruted to Comrross In 153, circumstantially exhibits the detai.s of the difficulties which Mr. Webster had anticipated. Referring to the sea son (if 152, and the effect ot the restriction en forced by British ves-els-ot-war, Mr. Sabine wrote: The results to our countrymen were dis astrous to a degree never before kuown In time of peace. The presence ot her Majesty's crullers in the waters in dispute between the two Govern ments nearly ruined some and inlured all who aaventureu thither, and was the occasion of oesponaency ana Buttering at many Hresides in Massachusetts and elsewhere in New England." A remark with which Mr. Sabine accompanies this recital of facts possesses particular signifi cance at this moment. "There can be' no change lor the better," are his words, "whuo the con- troverey as to the intent and meaning of the uonvennoa ot ibis snaa continue." The controversy was. however, superseded. and its attendant peril turned aside, by the Re ciprocity Treaty, under the operation of whlcn our fishermen have for ten years plied their vocation, peacefully and profitably, in Provin cial waters. The abrogation of the treaty, and the refusal ot Congress to sanction a ne arrangement with the Provinces, bring back the controversy which, as Mr. Sabine has shown, was disastrous to New England interest, and lay the founda tion ot lresh issues, involving what Mr. Webster described as "questions of a very serious nature, threatening tho peace of the two countries." Mr. Derby, in his report to Mr. Secretary Mc- Culloch, affirms that "we must either risk our mackeral fishery, treat, or annex the Provinces." With reciprocity, we have lost our mackeral fishery, and there will bo hard ship and suffering in the coming season among a class never addicted to over-much patience, and not likely now to submit quietly to the authority ol British vessels-of-war. Are the wise men ot Congress prepared for the emer gency ! Are they willing to entail disaster upon the fishermen and danger upon the country to satisfy the demands of the coal and iron mono polists of Pennsylvania? Or will they "treat'' lor a new commercial arrangement, which shall at once beueht the revenue, prevent injury to our trade, secure to our fishermen a continuance of valuable privileges, and dissipate the speck of war now rising out ot northern waters r There is yet time for negotiation, pending the completion of which all necessary points may be jtiowueu jor vy if mporary legislation. Meanwnue we nave a right to ase that our British cousins shall abstain from' pushing pre tensions in the justice of which this country has never acquiesced. We believe that the more intelligent section of Congress is ready to enter upon the whole question, with the view ot reaching results that shall be mutually advan tageous. The leeling in the '.treasury 1'epart ment is known to be in favor of this course, and it will assuredly gain ground whenever the varied bearings ot the question shall be dis cussed. It is essential, however, that there.be nothing like menace on the other side. We are for negotiation and legislation on a liberal, friendly basis, the feasibility of which depends upon the avoidance of all causes of inrtrrtion and all ground ot quarrel. President Johnson's Appeal to the People. From the Herald. The issue between the Present and his oppo nents is now broadly and clearly defined. There can be no mistaking it, no evading it, no ex plaining it away. In his first veto message, and in his grand speech on the 22d of Febru ary, President Johnson boldly drew the line be tween himself and the radicals; but they have since been endeavoring to obliterate these utterances from the minds of the people. For this purpose Thad. Stevens insulted the House and gave the world the lowest possible esti mate of the Intelligence of his constituents by declaring that the President's speech was only a hoax. For this purpose Senator Sherman went down to Connecticut and tried to delude the voters by arguing that the differences be tween the President and Congress were imma terial. For this purpose the editors of the radi cal journals have tilled their columns, day after day, with bogus reports as to what the President had said to. this radical Senator or to the other radical delegate. For this purpose the violent abuse of the President by the Radicals baa been temporarily abandoned, and some of tueui have even schooled themselves to speak of him re spectfully. And for this purpose Horace May nard, one of the excluded Congressmen from the President's own State, has been sent around the countiy to tell the people that the Union is restored, and that all the rights of the South are restored also. This second veto message dispels the illusions which these politicians have been endeavoring to create. It reminds us that eleven States are still out ol the Union. It point us to the danger of a mongrel republio. It is the President's appeal to the people against the politicians, and by the people he will be sustained. The first veto message of President Johnson convinced the leading men of Europe that be is a great btatesman. ilis speech ou the 22J of rebruary has been universally accepted as a masterpiece which no mince born to the purple could possibly have equalled. This second vcti message will add to his popularity here, and will increufo the respect entertained for him abroad. Its clear, calm, conclusive analysis ot tho Civil Kiiihls bill, its scathing exposure of tho faul's aud delects of the measure, and its ploquent siiifpmcnt of the policy which the President has deliberately adopted, and to which heiJintends to adhere, are such as would make the reputa tion ol any other official; but they can only strengthen the reputation of President John son. Some Congressmen who profess to be his friends bad vot'-d tor this bill; some of his supporters, who had not examined tne sub ject with sullicient attention, presumed and predicted that ho would give the' bill his signature; but, with a keener insight and a m re iutallible sagacity, Mr. Johnson at once detected the danger of 'tlns special legislation and the evils with which this niiasure was fraught. With the indomltnhle pluck which Ameiicans so much admire, and which we have seen incarnated in a Jackson, a Grnt, a Sher man, and a Sheridan, the President substituted a veto for his signature and sent the bill back to the Senate, where it originated. What the Senators may do with it is of no consequence. Two or three ol them may bo ill and tno veto maybe disregarded, or by a very close vote it may be Indorsed. In cither case the positiou of the President will not bo atlected. He looks beyond Congress; he appeals to the people, and by the people he will bo almost unanimously sustained. The veto messnge shows Irrefutably that the radicals de'ign to make this a mongrel Govern ment. It has unmasked them; they can no lonuer maintain their hypocritical pretense of philanthropy. They hope and expect to confer the right ot suffrage upon the negroes; to elect negro members ot Congress from tho Southern States; to make negroes eligible for the highest ollices in the land. The political equality of the blacks thus conceded, how can their social equality be denied They must be permitted to propose marriage to our daughters; to sit at table with white persons; to mingle familiarly in tho best society. For the sake ol thiee million of negroes forty millions of white people have already been Involved in civil war; half of a great nation has been crippled and desolated; a heavy debt has been placed upon the shoulders of our citizens; blood has been poured out like water; pre cious lives have been ruthlessly sacrificed: but all this is not enough. Now, for the sake of three millions of negroes, tho white peoole ot this couutry are asked to submit to the abroga tion of the Constitution; to the exclusion of eleven Suites irom the Union; to the Biipcr sedure of the State judiciary; to the petty tyranny of irresponsible spies, paid to prefer complaints, whether justly or unjustly. More than this: we are asked tp give the semi civilized negro a preference over the intelligent immigrant who lands upon our shores; to punish a parent who iefuses to allow a negro to marry his child; to cast into prison any judge who decides the oicta of Congress unconstitu tional; to submit to a social association per iectly revolting to all sensible persons, and to a national luturc like that ot Mexico or of the mongrel soutd American republics. This is what the radicals demand, and all ibis they liavp embodied in the Ciyil Rights bill, which ought to be called a bill 10 deprive white men of all riehis. The President has placed this mea sure in its true light before the country. In doing so he has again broken all party trammels, aud exhibited a patriotism that can rise superior to all partisan plea of expediency. An entire recoi struction of th politics of the United States will be the result. All who are in lavor ol assassinating the republic in oider to make the negro equal to the whites will take sides with Congress. All who are in favor of the Union, governed by white men for the benefit of the people, will taie sides with the President. The issue is made; the President appeals directly to his lellow-citizeus, and, one alter another beginning with Connecticut next Monday the States will wheel into line in his support. Cotton. Seizures and the Treasury Agent feystein. From, the World. Under the act of Congress authorizing seizures of "abandoned and captured" property, the United States Treasury agents have, during and since the war, been seizing large quantities of all kinds of property, but especially of cot ton. Northern men, aud other parties not living at the 8outh, own or are interested in much of this cotton. It becomes a matter of general interest to know on what legal looting these seizures by Treasury agents ret. There were grave doubts at the time of tho passage of the act, on the part of many per sons of some respectability, both as to its legality and its expediency. The act seemed to most men to be limited in its action to the period ot actual hostilities. But hostilities have long since ceased. Not, however, cotton seizures. - A kind of kleptomania has come over the Treasury olicials. Wo do not attri bute to them moral guilt greater than that of many other men. But their moral and legal senses nave rjecome i wis ted. xuey are in an abnormal condition. There are some points they can give up, but their cotton stealing they must nave. One of these cotton cases has been recently submitted to. Mr. Charles O'Conor, with a re quest tor his opiniou on the legality of the seizure. Aud Mr. O'Conor has given an opinion to the effect that the seizure was wholly unwar rantable, and that there is no authority in law lor the disposition intended to be made of the property. Mr. O'Conor's opinion shows the same clearness and lorce which always dis tinguish the productions ot that gentleman. acknowledged on all bands to befactle princeps of tne JNew i oik Dar. sir, janies r. isrady has signified, over his name, his agreement with Mr. O'Conor's conclusions and arguments; and Judge Pierrepont and Mr. William M. Evarts, lawyers of acknowledged ability, widely differ- lng from Mr. O'Conor in political views, agree with him in his argument and its conclusions. The statute provides that it shall be lawful for the agents appointed by the Treasury for the purpose "to receive and collect all abandoned or captured property." The term "captured property" already had its meaning, and received no new one. The term "abandoned property" was a new term, and the thing covered by it was a new thing. And Congress provided" that property should be regarded as "abandoned" when the lawful owner thereof should be "voluntarily absent therefrom, and engaged, either in arms or otherwise, in aiding or encouraging the Re bellion." These Treasury agent acts provided that the firoperty referred to might be received or col ected bv the agents, and "appropriated to public use on due appraisement, or lorwarded" to a place ot sale. The sales were to De at public auction, and the proceeds paid into the United States Treasury. Alter all expenses of seizure and subscuueut charges are paid from those pro ceeds, the balance may possibly, at some distant time, reach the bands ot the lawful owner. The laws passed by Congress on the subject of these seizures were, in their nature, temporary, and operative onlv until the suppression of the Rebellion. As has been already stated, the statute provides that property shall bo regarded as "abandoned" when the lawful owner thereof shall be voluntarily absent therefrom, and en gaged, either in arms or otherwise, in aiding or encouraging the Rebellion. It will puzzle most men to understand how the owner oi .property can be engaged in aiding or encouraging the Rebellion after it is atf an end. Though the statute itself mentions no point oi time when these seizures are to ceaso.ltls plain they are not to last forever. Aud no other limitation can be possible than that already slated the end ot tho war, of actual hostilities. These cases cannot be deemed cases of "cap tured" property, for captures can be made only during actual war by the naval and military forces of the United States, not by Treasury agents in time ol peace. Moreover, one of the acts provides for apple cations to the Court of Claims for roliet against wrongs done bv these seizures. But these appli cations are to be presented only within two years "alter the suppression of the Rebellion." Plainly no acts to be relieved against are to be commuted alter that suppression. Through the entire ennrs of his nraument Mr. O'Coi.or unses his opinion on the cjiistruo- t'on of the statute. It he were sitting on the bench be would iiroliably dec do that tn sta tute ilfcll had no validity. And nio.it good law yers would oiobubiy agree with hnn. Allot theFe statutes, we presume, were, by he Coneresnnen of the per ort. saddled on thn buck ol that r.oor scapegoat. "War Powers." The Idea 6eeni3 to enve been that, once granting umtiiiP nic in arms auatnst hip ovprniiient v ere ulien enpn les. vou also deprived them of all right to held their own property. But oh all sound principles oi the laws ot" war, as laid dew n by the best authorities, tbe property of citizens end of alien enemies, as far as "war powers" are concerned, stands in precisely the same position, equally good and equally bad. Property on land can bo scizpd and used in any manner, vhen it is uecessnry for actual war operations of armies or naval "forces, and not otherwise; and this, w nether belonging to friend or foe. And the law Is the same for both cases. Piooertv on land of alien enemies is protected in the same manner and to the name extent as that of citizens. No case coming under "War Powers'' can f xlst alter the war Is ended. The reasonings in support of all these Treasury agent proceedings would not commnud an instant's ron-ideralion were it not that they are urged bv men in high places. Mr. O'Conor, in his opinion, has cnrerully confined himself to a course of reasoning which he might safely use beloie men filled with tlie prejudices of labid Republicanism. Even Charles Sumner, if ho were a judge, would be compelled to heed them. Mr. O'Conor gives an opitiim which he thinks enn be successfully maintained before present .judges. Were be a judge himself, he would probably decline to near counsel on either side. SPECIAL NOTICES. ?- GOOD FRIDAY. ATTRACTIVE SUN- day Hcl.ool Anniversary. FKIDAY KVENINO.
