The New Orleans Pieavune of the 20lh is of the opinion that tho reason why so j many troeps are sent to Texas is to estuh- lish peace not only between the two public , belligerents, but also between indivimalsj and families. Hear it: I "There appears to be a general misundor- , standing throughout iho country as to the objec' of Bending troops to Tex as. It is not for the purpose of putting down the rebel lion therein thai is already over to .the uttermost limits of tho U.. public but to preserve the public peace aud order. From ihe beginning of the rebellion there was a divided opinion iu Texas, and Ihe adherents, of both sides, those of the Union aud those of the Confederacy, were very violent, and iu the name of both many outrages have been committed. 'In Confederate times, oulrpoken Union men were either maltreated or driven out of the State. Numerous instauccs are oil rec ord uf non-coinbatautsnol being allowed lo leave at all those able to bear arms were of coui-sa held for conscription ind when they attempted to do so, old men, women and foreigners were alike arrested and held in durance vile. Eveu family l-tl?rs and personal remembrances were often detained uud for a time no convnuuic nion, except such as was clandestine, Couid be had with the outer world. "Ou the other hand, whenever, anl so long us possible. Union men d'd their best to discredit aud do iiyury to Confederates. In the misfortune of exiiC thsir rcproiushes lost uone of their bitterness and when the war approached its end, loud and deep threats of vengeance were heard on every side. Of the real and horrible eharaeter of this warfare, those only can have any ade quate idea w ho bare lived in Texaa, or been compelled to lUtento ihe annual recrio inv tioni and maledictions of the hating and I he bated. "Of course the great man of the people of Texas are an industrious, law-at-.idmg people, did all they could io discountenance tbee acts of violence; nevertheless, they were oo remitted by indivilu Is all through the 8taie up to the close of the wsr, and there were abundant signs of ibeir contin uance.

I'ltavuiii'-l , , 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 shortly follow. The nninesty now offered differs from that tendered by President Lincoln in Deccmbc, ISO.! and March 1301, iu the following par ticulars : 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 cation act. 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 explanation unnecessary. 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 12th class. " 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 amnesty. In regard to the other excepted parties, we commend to them the exercise of pa tience, moderation and prudence. There ..cnc-, mouerauou P'""; "- are other mode, by which they may be re.- I?! . L" I hA" Executive nardon. If ther have not been excluded from eueh rights by the Constitu tion of tbe State or which they may be citi zens, thev cannot be d?nrived of the same 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 agtiast certain persons, leaving it to their discretion and sense of duty to proseeote the other parlies exee p'el from pardon.

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.
