that, tho negroes should make contract! with

Wo think that tho dilliuuliies would b'

any other practical suggestion.
' There is danger now, that thcplantations
may bo broken up, and the negroes thrown

simply from misunderstanding the orders
and wisheB of the Government. The plan
ters arc anxious to oonlinno their planta

hnvo been led to believe that Ihey can keep
the negroes only by paying specified rates.
In present times "aud unfavorable crops
now growing, they are afraid to undortako
this. Tho negroes aro mostly willing and
desirous lo remain on tho plantations on
fair tcr.ns. but believe that if rules are pre
scribed which planters cannot pty, th y
and their families must bo driven from
their homes to perish. If free, cerlaitily
they should be allowed tuo first privilege
freedom, lo dispose of their labor on fair

The Procluuiaiiun of Amnesty, by Presi
dent Johnson, which reached this city on
Sunday tin I will bo fonpd elsewheie In our
columns, excited much discussion nnd no
liulo of that surprise nud ilKapoIninietit
which wo learn by the telegraph wore the
prevalent feeling's iu Ihe Nortli, on 1h first
appeariitieo thorn. Its spirit and provisions
are cirlainlv lunch moro "striilgeut" than
those of tho I HO President's procliiinalion,
lliougli praciioally ninny of its apparently
ucvefo and onerous provisious may bn ren
dered null or mo tilled by events whbh will
The nninesty now offered differs from that
tendered by President Lincoln in Deccmbc,
ISO.! and March 1301, iu the following par
1. It excludes from proton', pardon a much
larger number of persons than were exclud
ed by President Lincoln.
2. It makes very essential and iuibortant
changes in tho words of tho amnesty o.uh.
Thai prescribed by President Lincoln an
nexed to the obligations to abide by an I
faithfully support all laws and proclama
tions wh ch have been made duriuf the ex
isting rcbclliou In rcl'crenco to the emanci
pation of slaves," thecond'tions, ''uniilsueh
laws and proclamations shall be repealed
by aol of t.'onjrress, and lioe.larnd unconsti
tutional by the !:,ipi'eiu ''oiiitof the United
Statc'i. ' l re .: dei.t. Jo'inson make-" no ee
vation. but inasmuch as the prccjdintj po"
tiou of til ! o nil binds tlm jiiio'J to "faith-
fully det'en I the l.'oiistitmion liie Uoi'e 1
Suites," if any law or pwclmn.-.tinti was re- j
pealed bi' Congress, or docl.ired itncorisii- ,
iniional y tiro Judiciary, the letter ind ;
ppiril of tt:i oilh would inrhid I i u from
"abiding by nnd faiihfully siieie; i u;r s'loli
law or proclaim' lion." Until ftch repeal,
or judicial decision, he is uonad by his oai.Ii
to render bis support to nil the laws and
proclaim!.: i 'H referred to. Any cth.tr in
terpretation would place tho President -loovo
and superior to the Constitution anl laws, j
which wo cannot believe was intended 'by I
President Johuson. !
4. Another rather sovoro nnd onerouB
condition imposed by th s now amnesty, is
that which excludes all persons against
whom legal proceedings, under the laws of
,-!.,., O.M.Mn ..n,.i.li , r. Cm f V, nmt (w
the United States, providine for the confis
cation of property ofporsons engaged in re
bellion, have boen instituted.
Undor the proclamation of President
Lincoln, tho amnesty oath has been admit
ted, nsji bar to legal proceedings for con
fiscation. Many such suits havo been dis
missed, and iho ai des amnestied hnvo
bcon restored to their righis of property
as well as to all their other civil rights.
These parties will not bo disturbed in their
rights, having ajoeptod the terms and se
cured tho b 'tiefits offered by Prosllont. Liu
coin; but those who did not avail thctu
bcIvos of tho terms offered by tho former,
and against whom proceedings have been
instituted forconfi-scatiunaro excepted fron
pardon, by President Johnson, even if thoy
nro not included in any one of ihe fourtoon
classes of persons excepted.
Those parties may bo relieved by any ono
or the following remedieB:
1. The repeal by Congress of the confis
2. Tho decision of tha Suprom Court
against tho constitutionality of that act.
3. An appeal to tho olemency rf tho Ex
ecutive which, wo are assured, will bo as
'libcrsllr extended n.i may to consistent
with iho facts of tho case and ihe dignity of
It. TT..iln,l Sl,n,aa "
tho United Slates.'
The several other olasses excepted from
pardon aro so clearly statod in this procla
mation ns to render furihor description and
Thero is ono clauso, howevor, which is
variously understood nnd interproiod, and
which perhaps includes a largsr number of
the excluded than all tho others. It is tho
" All persons who at tho time v,hon they
seek to obtain the benefits hereof, by taking
the oath heroin prescribed, are in military
naval, or civil confinement or custody, or
under bond of military or naval authorities
or agents of tho United States, nsjprisoners
of war, or persons detiined for offences of
auy'kind, either before or alter conviction.
This npplios to nil paroled prisoners.
There was a similar provision iu President
Lincoln's proclamation. Such parties were
regarded as under duress, and therefore riot
qnafniod to like an oath wh'nh w is requir
ed to he taken voluntarily and without re
straint. But when these parties are released from
their parole and obligations by the declara
tion of peace, they will no longer bo exclu
ded. The newspapers inform us that Pres
ident Johnson will issue such deo erntion of
peace in a few days. If ho does not, and
the csistence of peace being a fact, may it
not be competent for the military authori
ties to recognize and declare such fa;tY
May not Gen. Cmby, for example, who
accepted and required .-ucU paroles, pro-
:1 aim their termination
and nuinty, ami
ivlease the parties from all duress nnd the
consequences of said obligation ? When he
or the President so declares, there will be
no impediment to all persons reving under
auoh obligation availing themselves of this

Executive nardon. If ther have not been
excluded from eueh rights by the Constitu
tion of tbe State or which they may be citi

by the President's proclamation. Tbe only
eff et of that document is tocontrol the ex
ecutive officers of the J'iovernment, in di
recting aud authorizing nolle arorcguie

discretion and sense of duty to proseeote

Tho poor of the Presidont to declare an

Const tuition which empowers him "to grant
reprieves and fardon for offenses sga'nst

The Louisville Domocrat, in an artlclo
upon the lute act of tho Massachusetts Leg
islature forbidding the licensing of any ex
hibition inton led or calculated lo bring any
porson into ridiculo or contompton account
of hia ruco or color, uses tho following lan
guage: 'Therd is a reason for it. The day when
the merry exhibition of phases of the negro
cliarao'er passed, then the condition that
indulged them in hnrmleas merriment was
lost. Its signs aro already shown. Nonno
looks at the negro soldier nnd sees thoso
exhibitions of kindly gleo that lit up their
dark faces with that glow of good humor
that involuntarily drove Iho hand of the
looker-on into his pocket for nn extra dime,
to bo well repaid by the grotesque bow and
broad griu. Ovor tho wido river their mer
ry bont songs will no longer go swinging
in melody among tho echoes of tho shores.
No more at evening, when work is done,
will the song, enriched by quaint phrase
o'o'jy, float from tho cabins of iho laborers,
nnd uo lunger tho flddlo ringo to the hoo
dowu of the brisk feet. That day is past,
and soon the entertainments which xhibit
od it bocomo untrue to the reality and val
