In another column will be found tbe met
sae of tbe fraudulent Fresident vetoing" the
appropriation Lll). This document seems to
be a prolonged apology for enforcing the in
clivitlual judgment of tbe man who exercises
tho functions of an o'lice to which he was
not elected, cgainst the judgment of tbe
nation, which ban expressed iU condemnation
of the iniquitous measures which both
branches of cougress have repealed. In hU
inaugural Hayes declared bis determination
t'j prevent the use of Federal troops in elec
tions, the very thiug proposed by the bill
which, be bus vetoed. Llayts, Garfield and
many leuding Republicans would voU for a
repeal of the measure so obnoxious to the
Democrats and to tbe genius of republican
institution-', if they were separate measures,
when the confjressijnnl records khow that
Hayes himself voted for the very pro
vision authorizing the use of troops
at the polls, and that it was
enacted b7 a Republican congress as a rider
on the appropriation bill. So it seems the
bogus President ia of the opinion that a bill
which was enacted as a rider cannot be re
pealed as a rid tr. The appropriation bi'l
baa been vetoe I because of the form in
which it comes to t'ae President for bis signa
ture. This ia a (tros abuse of power. What
would the country think of a President were
be to veto a bill bjcause it was not worded to
suit him? Ilajes vetoes this bill because of
the manner of it passage. Lie thus makes
himself a legislator as well as chief execu
tive. The United Stales constitution de
clares that "all legislative powers herein
granted shall be vested in a congress of tho
United States." legislative power, as every
one knows, is the power to mike laws. No
other department of tie government can pre
ncribi limitation on the ixercise ot this
power. The judicial power can pronounce
laws unconstitutional and refuse to en
force them, bi. it cannot say what laws
shall be enacted, and even the executive
ruuit obey lavs which he deems uncon
stitutional till they be repealed. Certain
ly the President cannot any more than the
supreme court prescribe Low congress shall
legislate, or how many subjects of legislation
it may embrace in one bill, or bow many re
peals. The constitution has, it is hue, en
abled the President, if he disapproves of any
Lill rjresented to him. to insist that it shall
not be a law till passed by a two-thirds vote.
UU veto towjr is only a power to itqune a
twthirds instead of a majority vote. But
"all legislative powers" ar 3 nevertheless
vested id congress and none are rested in the
President. Tho President ia wilhner for a
Democratic congress to tako from him the
power to use Federal bayonets at
the polb, but he must dictate
the form of legislation and
thereby become a legislator as well as
President. A F.esident vetoing the repeal
of a law is something now in the history of
the Rovornment, for there can ba no hasty
or unconstitutional legislation in the repeal
of a law by precisely the same means by
whicb it a itatt?d. The manner cf legis
lation ia a matter solely within tho province
of congress. And no party in con
gress ever assertod f hi- province with
more aggressiveness toward the executive
than did the Republicans of the thirty-ninth
and fortieth conaresses during the adminis
tration of Andy Johnson, v. hen President
Hayes, a representative from Ohio in both
those congresses, advocated snd voted for
xtra legislation in and riders upon appro
priation bills. By vetoing tho army bill
President Hayes ha not only grossly stulti
fied himself personally and his party includ
ing himself politically, but he assumes an
utterly defenseless position before the
American peoile with aa issue upon
which h) and his tarty are sera to
be beaten. The veto power was
uever intended for such pjrposes as Hayes
wielded it on yenterday. There is no consti
tutional monarchy in Europe that would dare
attempt such resistance to the popular will
as Hayes has attempted. Saven years and a
half have elapsed since tbe people declared
that the time had coma fir a change from
narrow Btctioa&lism to broad nationalism.
Twice sine-) then they have uttered the same
decree. It execution ha? been stayed by
nen aloes who did not even pretend to repre
sent pnulia opinion; senators chosen during
the" i,r Of bate, who represented the ani
mo 'ties enae.di'red by war, and who resisted
tho progress oi pacification becauso they
knew that a return" to normal conditions
meant their retirement .omer to the shades
of obscurity. Through a'l these jean
the natient. looe-tuifcrinar people ae
bten compelled to submit to minority
domination because it wua nominated in the
bond, because it had, at least, a technical
warrant in the constitution. True to ita in
stinct of hato. faithful in its contempt of
"popular clamor," the radical senate of the
fotty-fifth congress died with defiance of pub
lir rinmirtn nti its banners. It expired in an
attempt to defeat tho majority of the A inert
can neoole in their effort to make their will
into statutes in the way prescribed by law,
And now tho man who was fraudulently in
ducted into the Presidential oiKco is using
bis dishonust power to defeat the will or the
people from whom hn oflice waa stolen. The
Democrats of congress will prove themselves
contemptible cowardd if they do not accept
ttie isauc, which is, whether congress Bhall
muke laws in conformity with the popular
will or thut ot a fraudulent President.

Washington, April 29. Subscriptions to

yesterday amount to seven hundred and
eighty-seven thousand four hundred dollars.
STRENGTHENING THE NATIONAL BOAKD OF
HEALTH.
The bouse committee on epidemic diseases
to day authorized tbe chairman to report a
bill introduced by him on the fourteenth
instant, increasing the efficiency of the
national board of health, relative to the pre
vention or spread within the United States
of contagious diseases. The thirteenth sec
tion, which provides that nothing in the act
shall be construed to supersede the quaran
tine law of any State, waa stricken out.
Tbe house committee on the cause of the
prerent depression of labor held a meeting
to-dav, at which the practicability of visiting
San Francisco for the purpose.of taking tes
timony was discussed, and it was tbe senti
rueut of the members present that if sufficient
lands could be obtained to pursue such a
course, it should be done.
IMPORTANT MATTERS DISCUSSED IN CABI
NET. At the cabinet meeting to-day the quaran
tine established at Near Orleans by Governor
Nicholla was discuesed at considerable
length, Complaint is made by shippers of
grain from tbe upper Mississippi valley that
the regulations adopted virtually amount to
an embargo upon tbe shipment of grain to
France and Spain. In view of the fact that
congress has the subject befevo it in tbe form
of the national health bill, it was not deemed
advisable for tbe executive branch of the
government to take any action in tbe matter
at present.
Secretary Sherman made a statement as to
the action of the banks and capitalists in se
curing the refunding certificates intended to
be distributed among the people. It was tbe
generally expressed opinion that there could
be no method adopted that would secure the
object sought to be attained by the secretary,
aa there were so many methods by which the
certificates could be obtained by the moneyed
class without tcy infraction of the law.
WHAT WILL THE HOUSE DO WITH THE
VETO?
There are many speculations to-night as
to the course of the majority in congress
upon the veto message of the President. It
ia regarded aa very probable that a caucus
will be held to-morrow evening and that some
definite expression of view will then be pro
mulgated. Nothing that can' be regarded as
sufficiently authoritative on this matter has
as yet been uttered.
THE CAUSE OF THE PRESIDENT'S PROCLA
MATION CONCERNING THE INDIAN RESER
VATION. Washington special to the Louisville
Courier Journal: The real meaning r.f Sec
retary Schurz's recent decision about the set
tlement of new lands in tho Indian Territory,
and the consequent proclamation by the
President, prohibiting it under penalties of
law, have not yet been made public; but the
whole matter contains a story that might
have developed into a romance if some one
had not been leaking secrets. The fertility
of the unclaimed and unoccupied lands in
this Indian Territory, located in the south
western part of the Territory, is well enough
known to prove attractive to emigrants seek
ing homes in the west; but the treaties with
tbe tribes which settled in them, all
rights to the lands in quei"
tion, seemed to make it unsafe for the wbite
man to look covetously in that direction.
Some few months ago, however, a movement
was made secretly looking to an occupation
of this territoty, and extended correspond
ence was carried on between tbe leaders of
the enterpriser in Washington, and the
secretaries of emigrant societies in various
large cities. A preconcerted movement
toward the Territory waa finally arranged.
A large number of families of farmers
and mechanics, some estimates placing
the figures as high r? JLen thousand,
had promised to join the expedition at
stated points on the route, quite a large
delegation intending to co from Balti
more, others from Philadelphia, St. Louis
and Cincinnati. In order to show the pur
port of tho expedition, the following corre
spondence between Augustus Albeit, of Bal
timore, heretofore unpublished, and tjolonel
E. C. Boudinot, may be given: Mr. Albert,
under date of March 27, 1379, wrote to
Colonel Boudinot, propounding a series of
questions, in which it was asked what amount
of land the government owned there, from
what tribe it -had been purchased, what the
situation was in the Territory, whether the
fovernment was free from restriction, etc.
0 this Colonel Boudinot replied at great
lensrtb, under date of March JlsL stalin&r that
in 1C6 the government had purchased tour-
teen million acres ot tbe Indians, and triving
the amount appropriated tmong the various
tribes for the purpose of settlement under
the treaties. A balanco remains of two mil
lion acres, which has not been appropriated
for use among the Indian tribes, and in all
probability never will be. Colonel B iudinot
claims that the Indian title to this largo re
mainder has been extinguished; that Com
missioner W. Morrison practically admitted
this in his report for 1878, when he desig
nated these acres as public land, and he
srvs in the fourth paragraph of his reply:
"whatever mar have been the intention
of the government in 1S66 to locate Indians
and negroes upon these lands, it ia certain
that no such desire or intention exists in 1879.
The neirro since that date has become a cit
izen of the United States, and congress has
recently enacted laws which practically pro
hibit the removal of any more Indians into
the Territory. Two years ago Mr. Mills, of
Texas, carried a provision to be inserted into
tbe Indian appropriation pm prohibiting the
removal ot the &ioux Indians into the Indian
Territory, a project at that time contem
plated bv tbe interior department, aud by a
similar provision of the Indian bill of lat
winter, the removal ot any Indians from Ar
izona or New Mexico into the Indian Terri-
torr is forbidden, lbe taws practically leave
several millions of acres of the richest lands
on the continent free from Indian title or oc
cuuancr. and an integral part of
the nubiio domain. xne emi

grants appeared (o be dazzled by
such logic, and tbe prospects of a paradise in
the west. Ihey had their arrangements
made to start on July 4th from various
noints. all the time keeping their destination
a profound secret. They prepared maps of
the Territory, showing the land arrived at,
and distributed these amonz their reliable
friends. One of tbeoi in some way found the
office of Secretary Sohur, and the prospectus
on the margin aroused nia curiosity, foeeing
Lbe scope of the undertaking, he called the
question up in the cabinet, and the result was
u proclamation warning the hopeful scttlerB
olf This will probably e-uj the enterprise,
as tbe emigrants will hardly care to tfy in the
face ot an omcial edict.

Vicksburg Herald, 27th "On Thursday
last, as tbe morning freight on the Vicks
burg and Meridian railroad was turning the
curve between Bolton and Clinton, Engineer
Foley espied an engine, when only two hun
dred yards apsrt, approaching at fall speed.
The train and the engine were nearing each
other at tbe rate of fifty miles an hour, and
no time was to be loss. The fireman on Fo
ley's train 'took the ditch,' ahebting on bis
head, but not being seriously injured. En
gineer Foley whistled 'down brakes,' and
reversed hia engine,' but by this time the
meeting engines were so close that Mr. Foley
had to jump through the window of the cab.
He alighted in the ditch, having escaped the
fall with only slight bruises. The shock of
meeting waa terrific. Both engines were
badly crippled and recoiled, only to come to
gether again, and Mr. Foley says that at the
second shock they looked like two billy goats.
Aa the train was a freight, no one was hurt,
as all the employes saw their danger and
jumped. The engineer ot the lone engine
jumped his engine when Le first caught sight
ot tbe freight train, and was unhurt, lne
cause of the accident was a mibtaken idea of
the schedule on which the train ran, and Mr.
Knowlos, the engineer on the 'wild engine,'
was tryictr to make Jackson before the freight
train left."

ing the injurious effects ot excessive foreign
tar iff j.
Lord Beaconsneld said the utmost that the
government could do in negotiating: como.er
cial treaties was to see that England had the
benefit of the most favored nation clause. He
objected to violent changes. The indefinite

cause disappointment and uneasiness. It
was absurd to describe the condition of the
country as one of distress and distraction.

was reviving.

signs of revival in the United States, owing
to the wonderfully good harvest, tie hoped
trade would gradually revive until it had at

St. Petersburg.
St. Petebsbubg, March, 29. The police
are openly arresting tbe people by batches
at all hours of the day. Hitherto the arrests
were made at night. On the slightest sus
picion asrainat any person his whole family
are arrested, and domiciliary visits are paid
to ail their acquaintances: these leading to
further apprehensions on tie most frivolous
grounds. Eighty-three furnished lodging
keepers are in prison for not reporting with'
in twenty-four hours the latest arrivals.
JakovelefT, a government official living in
his winter palace, and bis son, an officer in
the guards, are among the prisoners in cus

of tbe St. Petersburg garrison, and General
GildenBtaube, commandant of the Moscow

with stout sticks, and covered prison vans

beside the driver, and General Gourko drives

British Wheat Crops are Backward.
London. April 29. The Mark Lane Ex
press says the condition of the growing
wheat is backward in the lowlands of scot
)and, while heavy rain and mow have stopped
th spring sowing in the hiqher districts.
ThO supplies of English wheat at the country
markets have been fairly liberal and prices
slig-fatly improved. At Mark Lane offerings
were light. Bayers only responded to the
firmness of holders by taking the choicest
lot at foil prices. La?t week's imports of
foreign wheat into London were lair, lat
Monday's return showing the arrival of thirty-three
thousand quarters, while subsequent
returns to Friday showed eighteen thousand
quarters. Supplies at Liverpool have been
unusually heavy. Trade at both ports has
been steadier, although the weight of the
present and prospective supplies restricts the
operations ot buyers. An improved demand
followed the inactivity caused by the holi
days, but the absence of speculation confined
business to the tupply of present require
ments, and stocks have diminished slowly.
Prices-were little changed, as the supply and
demand balanced evenly. The large visible
supply in Americh is likely to be counteract
ed by the unsatisfactory agricultural out
look and the large needs of France.
Some sorts American were cheaper, but the
decline was unquoted, as it affected only in
ferior produce. Fine red winters unchanged;
nearly all spring wheat from the Atlantic
ports was very poor, being purchased at 35
364 for No. 3 Chicago, and 39a for No. 2
jll lwaukee per 40 pounds, including cost,
flight and insurance. Maize was freely of
fered; old mixed American obtainable at 21s
9d per 480 pounds; ex-store and new at 21s
3d. Barley slow and unchanged. Oats in
better request, and prices favored sellers.
Sales of English wheat last week 53,483
quarters at 40s lid, against 38,315 quarters
at 51s 8d for the corresponding period the
previous year. Imports into the United
Kingdom for the week ending April 26tb,
1,110,172 hundred-weight wheat, and 220,
130 hundred-weight flour.
THE STANLEY TKIAL.
dieacral Uaxcn's Testimony fteeoaat
. lag Scenes and Incidents Trans
piring at the Battle of Shlloh.
New York. April 29. At the Stanley
court-martial General Hazen testified as fol
lows, relative to the separation from his com
mand at Shiloh: It was tbe first battle' in
which I was engaged, aud I was an entire
stranger to the topography of the country;
besides I was not well mounted, my horse
being lame and jaded ; I went forward with
my command, and only went back when tbe
brigade was repulsed; on retiring I went to
ward the left, many of my men doing the
same; I passed into a dense thicket, and not
getting the proper direction I became be
wildered and lost my way; regarding the
position of Crittenden's division, my brigade
moved more rapidly across his front; when I
came back there was a long gap between
Crittenden's and my men; I mistook the fir
ing at the right for my brigade; the first
troops I met were Rousseau's, and
the first officer was General John H.
King, at present a member of this
court; he directed me which way to go; I
lost my way again, and at last concluded to
take the first road; all the roads led to the
landing, and I thought it better to go first to
the landing, aud then take the Hamburg
road, with which I was acquainted, and
which I thought would lead me back to my
command; near the river I met Dr. Murray;
I felt my position to be an awkward one, and
I was very much depressed in spirits; I did
not strike Hamburg until I crot near the land
ing; here I met some of my men, who offered
me something f'cr dinner, I having tasted
n thicg that day; 1 dismounted and went to
ward the riverside, meeting General Gillem;
I then went back by the Hamburg road and
joined my brigade; I met General Nelson,
and reported the entire circumstances ot the
case to him; he expressed himself as com
pletely satisfied, and 1 considered it as one of
those unavoidable accidents which may fall
to the lot of anyone.
Witness was examined on his conduct at
Pickett's Mills. He said that his brigade,
after being engaged about forty minutes, re
tired, finding it lmpossiole to remain; the
attack upon the enemy's position was to have
been made in column, but, instead of that, it
was mode in line and detachments; witness
did not rrder to move back; it was a volun
tary action on the part of the men ; I re
mained with my brigade until I received
General Wood's trdeis; ho was then very
much iu front, so, that to report to him, I was
obliged to approach him from tbe rear.

"PAP" SINGLETON, THE NEGBO MOSE8.
The Chicago Times has the following sketch
of a colored man well known in Nashville:
"Pap" Singleton, who is described as the
Moses of tbe negro exodus, lives at Topeka,
Kansas. He is a little old man, a mulatto,
over seventy rears of acre, with wavy iron-
gray hair, tquate jaws, full, quick eyes and a
general expression ot honesty, courage and
modesty. His name is Benjamin Singleton,
and he is known among his colored friends
and followers as "Pap Singleton." He was
bora and raised in Nashville, Tennessee,
where he worked in early manhood at cabinet-making,
and from where he was sold a
dozen times or more, and went to the gulf
States, always escaping and coming back to
Tennessee. Finally he determined to flee to
Canada, and only succeeded after three at
tempts and through perils and sufferings
that only a man with a supreme passion for
liberty could have surmounted. After reach
ing Canada in safety, he soon returned to
Detroit, and remained there through the
war, laboring as a scavenger, and Keeping a
sort of boardinghouse, where fugitive slaves
were fed, hidden and helped on their way.
As soon as' the war closed, he went bick to
Tennessee, poor as he left, save that now he
was a free man, and entered upon what he
calls his "mission."
'I had studied it all out. he says, "and
it was as cl'ar as day to me. I dunno how
it came to me; but I spect it os God s
doin's. Anyhow, I knowed my people
couldn't live tbar. It was ag'in nature for
the masters and the slaves to jine hands and
work together. Nuthin' but de miliimium
could bring that around. The whites had
the lands and the sense, an' the blacks
nothiu' but their freedom an' it was just
like a dream to 'em. Bime-by the fifteenth
amendment came along, and tbe carpet
baggers and my poor people thought they
was com to have uanaan rignc on. isut i
knowed better; I knowed better, an' I told
em so. 1 said to em : 'Hyar you is a-pot-
terin' round iu politics,' and tryin' to git into
offices you aint fat lor, and you can t see
that these white tramps from the norm is
simply usin you for to line their pockets, and
when they get through they 11 drop you, and
the rebels will oome into power and then
where will you be V
It was not until I5iy-U that bingleton
could induce his colored brethren to "get it
onto their minds," as he expressed it, that
they ought to be trying to get homes of their
own, ianas ot their own, instead ot depend'
ing upon tenting from tneir former masters,
or subsisting by days' woik. And even then
they were averse to leaving tho south. Some
efforts were made to buy lands in Tennessee,
but the land -owners laughed at the idea.
and refused to sell at any but exorbitant
prices. Then it was, in 1572, that an ex
ploring committee was sent to Kansas, aud
made a f ivora'ole report, and several families
came out. The next year Singleton himself
made a trip to Kansas, as president of the
"Tennessee real estate and homestead asso
ciation, which be had organized, and wds i
so well pleased that be went back to Tennes
see and gathered np two hundred or three
hundred people, whom he took and located
in Cherokee county, the settlement being
called Singleton Colony.
This was the brut colonization movement
among the negroes, and tbe forerunner of
the present extraordinary exodus. Those
who went in 1873 did well, and sent back fa
vorable reports and others followed. Soon
the railroad companies began ottering special
inducements, aud during the last threo years
there has been a ctep.dy immigration to Kan
sas. Singleton has brought nearly eight
thcusind of them, all from Tennessee, and
several colonies havo come from Kentucky,
an association similar to singleton s having
been organized in that State. The total
cumber no far arrived may be safely estima
ted at not less than fifteen thousand, and
they aie coming by hundreds now, every
week.
Tbe Singleton colouy, in Cherokee county.
aud one of the eatno name in Morris county,
are tbe principal colored settlements, though
the KentuckiBns have quite a colony in Gra
ham county, called Nicodeinus, and there are
smaller settlements in Barton and Hodge
man counties. These colored settlers are in-
dustrous and well-behaved, and seem to be
getting along as well as white people in cor
responding circumstances. Most ot them are
poor, end pay their own way to Kansas.
Some of them have money enough to buy
little tracts of cheap railroad lands; others
enter homesteads on the public domain; and
still others work by the day for farmers in
their neighborhood, or rent Email plats and
farm them "on shares," until they can buy
and improve places of their own. Very few
of them stop in the towns; Singleton con
stantly advises against it, and also does his
best to keep those lrom coming who have
not a little something to start with. "But,
Lord bless you, he says.you can t keep em
back now. The movin fever has got hold of
'em all over the south."
Singleton is in no sense a politician, and
lays but little stress upon the political aspect
of affairs in the south; his views are wholly
of an industrial turn, and bis idea of emigra
tion is the finding of homes and the accumu
lation of property. Upon tho whole, he at
taches prime importance to the plain, practi
cal business of making a living and securing
a home. The old man doubts if the franchise
has been more of a blessing than a disad
vantage to his brethren.
Singleton speaks wii.h. regret and some
bitterness of the advice given by certain lead
ing colored men against emigration men
like Fred Douglass, Governor Pinchback and
others of lesser note. He thinks they "see
darkly," or are playing into the hands of the
southern planters. "They have had porxl
luck," be says, "and they are listenin to false
prophets; they have been boosted up, and got
their heads whirlin', and now they think
they must judge things from where they
stand, when tho fact is the "riosRnm
is lower down in the tree down nigh to the
root." The fact that most of the negroes are
poor, which these men are urging as a fatal
objection to removing to a new country, he
considers eue strongest reason in favor of it.
though lie thinks no one should emigrate
without a little something to help him along.
"It's because they are poor." he claims, "that
they want to get away, and ought to get
away. If they had plenty, they wouldn't
want to come. It a to better their condition
that they are thinking of. That's what
white men go to new countries for, isn't it?
And do you tell thorn to stay back because
they are poor? Who was the homestead
law made for, if it wasn't for poor men ?"
