The Appeal, in its last Sunday's issue, Mbn certain remarks in rojranl to our short notice of the late election. It ap pears that the oath matter has wormed it e'.f around In his head. We never main tained that Johnson, the lately choacn Mayor, was not a citizen of the United States, but that he asked for English pro tection during the late war to get rid of certain duties incumbent on eitir.ens. The quest Ion now i, how did he do this? Did mete atatertion suffice, or did he have to iiopxrt his declaration with an oath The Appkal answers as follows: " The use of war oaths, we confess, lias not been remarkably advantageous, or prontable to the tjovernment or people. Their effect has been demoralizing, and the Government has never been protected by them to a cent's worth. Itut Mr. John sou did not swear falsely, li.- oath was, that be had not torsworn his allegiance to Great Kritain nothing more." In this point lies the confirmation of what we main tain. d. Can a citizen of the 1 tilted States hi the same time be a sub ject of a monarch 7 Does the naturaliza tion law allow such a backdoor as that '.' Moreover, the defense of the Appkal gains nothing by the distinction betwoen a war oath and any other, oath is oath, and untruth is untruth, none the leas, even with the aid of the Jesuitic "proba bleim " of this interpretation. The Rdrioe given to the Germans not to allow themselves to be misled by their organ, we have ourselves always taken to heart, and especially contributed with our energy to bring about that they should cut themselves loose from party slavery, independently exert a power in lioiitics, ami throw overboard that regular hill lurb regular ticket, " etc. The above is from the Aw Zeit, the German paper of this city, in response to a few words of comment lately made in the Appeal. If it has not maintained that Mr. Johnson is not a citizen, we are at a loss to see any good public reason for calling hi. character in (juestion. We have here tofore Baferstood the excuse made by his antagonists to he the protection ! of the public again-t a supposed in- competent officer.

And we applaud him for his addres in outwitting his enemies, antl tlu enemies of his State and people, strug gling for independence.

The Cincinnati Krffittrer denies that the XVth Amrndment can ever become a part the Contitution, and assigns the following reasons: L It a surrender of a fundamen tal 'eserved right of the States, ami Vnat cannot be accomplished without tbe unanimous consent of all the Mates. To no three-fourths of the Legislatures was delegated the power to change the Constitution in this re gard. '2.

The speech delivered by Dawes a lew days since, wherein he affords a glimpse of the extravagances, the -hamele&s extravagances, of the Oka NT administration, is having its effect Throughout the country. Not even the fraudulently-carried XVth Amendment can now save the Radi cal party. We are gradually being enlightened as to tne events preceding the war, and the exciting causes of it. The latest contribution to the history of that memorable eriod is from the pea of Jekk. S. Black. It will be found on our first page. It is worthy attention and remembrance. The lladicaLs should be silent hereafter as to the extra loyalty of Stanton. Ji'dge Blatth kri of New York, has decided in the rase of the United states against a wholesale liquor dealer and rectifier, that it was the duty of the defendant " to make the entries himself in his book, and he had no right to delegate the makiug ,ne,u to any otner person." This would make every liquor dealer big own clerk.

We hope our farming friends will not only con sult their own interests, but their duty to their commission merchants, and send their cotton to market. Hon. Alex. H.

Thekk is some anxiety among our people to know whether the law re- ntly passed regulating pmcra amusement, has been, or is to be en rml by the .Sheriff. We learn that in Nashville it has already been thor ottgly enforced, and that free-and-etisys, concert-rooms and such like places have been closed. We do not know that liny thing has been done under this law here. It Ls the duty of all sworn officers of the land to make arrests when offences come in any manner to their knowledge, without waiting for informers. If that to not Imm offenders will have a clear field, escape unpunished and crimes fail to ie prevented. The Cincinnati Empiirer pablisb.es a black-list of seventeen members of the Legislature of Ohio, who voted ;or the XVth Amendment against the express wishes of their cohstitu eius. In every county represented by these men negro suffrage was voted dow n by majorities ranging from 58 in Meigs to 4677 in Hamilton. Cham paigns 137 against it, Delaware 70, Fayette 272, Gallia 68o, Jackson 291 , Iawrence 1173, Madison 470, Noble (i2, Scioto N05, Stark CCU, and Brown D2. Had these members voted as they were instructed to do by their constituents, the amendment would have failed by 72 to 40. Thus under Washington influences have they de frauded the people. In the next elec tions we shall see the fruits in Demo cratic victories. Dawes' comparison of the esti mates of appropriations asked for dur ing the last year of Andrew John son's administration with those of the first year of the Grant administra tion is highly creditable to the former and decidedly damaging to the latter. Several prominent Democrats in the House said no better defense of An drew Johnson's administration could have been made than was thus exhibited. According to the showing of the chairman of the Appropriation Committee, and he is regarded as a careful man, the estimates of the Grant administration tor the first year exceed those of the last year o ANDREW Johnson's administration JISlwhujOO. Thi does not include the millions asked for St. Domingo, for the New York Postoffice, the Boston I'ostottiiv, and for league Island. The discussion of the subject of the Alabama claims is kept up w ith vigor by the London press. "Historicus" ( Vernon Haucoi ri ), in the Times, quotes the views of the Commissioners to France in 1 770-7, and also M r. Wku- vtEn'sreplyinanswertothecoiuplaint of Mexico that contraband traffic was earricd on letween Texas insurgents and citizens of the United States. Tbe position taken by Mr. Weuster was that the traffic was not an offense against American laws, though he ad mitted that persons engaged in it car ried it on at their own risk of capture antl punishment. He also quote- the follow ing letter, written when France was on the brink of war with Eng land: June 1, 177S. "Dear Sir: I have the pleasure of informing you that it is proposed to give yOH the command of the great sh!p we have built at Amstcr lam (a neutral port). She is at present the property of the King (of France); but its there is yet no war tteciareu, you oedoad BHUUied in France.

Against this last recommendation the letter carriers in convention protest, and suggest that they be treated as of one class, ami that all be compensated ;it the rate of per annum. The Po-t master General has the whole matter under advisement. Wuu.v in Ohio, the negro "amend-1 TSTZl t niisreprescntet.1 their constituents, the South Carolina papers complain of the misrepresentation of that State in Congress, just as Tennesseeans have the same reason to do. On the su! jeet ot admitting Virginia, which has unquestionably complied with all the conditions of tbe reconstruction acts, the HUM shameful misrepresentation of their constituents has taken place on the part ot members of Congress. These- men in bail faith to their own self-imposed terms, seek to impose further restrictions, while they repu diate their pledges. The Representa tives from South Carolina could not be 'elected constables in their own State, and one of them, Hock, like our Storks, owes his seat in Ctingress to the fact that he was defeat od by thousands of votes. But the oppo nents ol both were Democrats. This class of men are the especial advocates of oppression, proscription and mis rule, tiud represent their own thirst for jiower antl position and fears for their future, rather than their constit uency, white or black. But for the personal interests of these men, whose occupation will be gone the moment we have a settled condition of things on any reasonable basis, the Cnion might have been complete long since, and fraternity as well as peace might have prevailed. The very life of these miscreants is in the con tinuance of stiii'es and dissen- sions. As showing their true animm, j one or these toOOWS, during the uis- eussion on -Hrr question of admitting Virginia, had the -impudence to ask " what guarantee was there that, with those reconstructed States, all repre sented, there would be a Republican majority .in the Forty-second Con gress?" Fortunately for the country, the more respectable Republicans have taken alarm at this state of things, and have begun to castigate the brain less boobies whose meanness has be come so disgustingly apparent. Mr. Bingham, and other men of his type and mark, see and insist that the day for jienalties, tests and disqualifica tions has passed; and BnaHAM de clared that " the question in issue be fore the House is whether, in future, this govern nient was to have vassal Mate as well as vassal ritizens." Thus the signs are growing more hopeful. The leaders in the North have a polit ical future, which requires somewhat of integrity to the country. The Southern misrepresentatives are to fall the moment pacification and union is effected. Hence springs up a natu ral antagonism, which is not to lie evaded. The former would never re store suffrage, equality, liberty or rights of any kind to the Southern States, so long as that can be avoided. The latter are satisfied with the Recon struction acts, ask no more, and with the masses of their constituents begin to relent from their severity. The selfish meanness ot the Stores', Hodge's and WniTEMORE's, is ft ginning to be regarded as contempti ble, and they are beginning to be placed in a class to which the day is near in which it will be to incur insuf ferable obloquy to be known to belong. It Ls now some eighteen or twenty years since the celebrated coup iCvtat of the French Emperor, by which, in violation of his oath as President of a Republic he overthrew the govern ment and consolidated all power in his own hands. He has maintained usurped power a long time, but be has not been altogether easy on his throne. He has been compelled to make concessions, but not invariably . : to keep promises. He is now making " I I ! " m , . i w ar, unuer juutctat lorms and various I K "T uepuiy tun iitruiii is strucK at as a journalist, for criticising the govern ment too freely fordoing what under the American coiwiiutiyns is a right, no matter whether wisely or unwisely exercised. Usurpers cannot afford liberty to the press. The advocates of despotism insist that this Americanism will not do in France. Usurped power cannot afford to have its origin too freely scrutinised. In j France it is a crime to question the , Emperor's prerogatives, in the Uni- ted States, though theoretically un constitutional to abridge the freedom of speech or the press, it is diloyutty to question the supremacy of Congress. The difference between the two cases is not in principle, but only in name anil attendant circumstances. In France accordingly, while the jieople range themselves with the press, the Imperialist journals condemn the journalist. And, as if in sympathy with despotism, the supporters of our Congressional Aristocracy of masters, speak out in favor of the as sassin Prince. FoENE'i's r.-.v-ays: "In an ordinary case the shooting of Victor Noir, who walked of his own Iree volition into the lion o dun, I'i mitigating, life-saving clause, 'with extenuating circumstances.' There is not the slightest prospect of Prince Pierre Bonaparte undergoing any se vere punishment." To this the Ajt responds as follow-: " We have not so understood Ifhe transaction.
