TUESDAY MORNING, : : : IAN. 25, 1870.
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
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.

Wuu.v in Ohio, the negro "amend-1
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

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
