SATURDAY ....JANUARY 29, 1870. The Last of General Canby. General Canby's parting order, which w? published yesterday, is of a piece with his conduct daring the whole timo that he has commanded in Virginia. It is insult ing and dictatorial, and usurps powers which he does not possess. "We quote: "5* All prisoners (citizens) who, when the aforecited law of March 2, 1867, becomes Inoperative by reason of the conditions and limitations of the reconstruction laws, may be in confinement or custody by virtue of the final judgment and sentence of a mili tary commission or other military tribunal, will be oontinued in said custody until en titled to discharge by expiration of sen .tenco or the case is otherwise disposed of by proper authority. Upon a writ of habeas I corpus, or any other process issuing from a court of the United States in the case of any prisoner so held, the writ will be promptly responded to, and the officer in making his return to the writ will sot forth all the material facts of the case. If the writ be issued from a State court the offioer having the custody of any such prisoner will make a respectful return to the writ, setting forth the fact that the prisoner is held by virtue of the final judgment and sentence of a court of com petent jurisdiction, held under the au thority of the laws of the United States, and that the jurisdiction is exclusively in the courts of the United States. The divi sion between United States and State juris dictions is not always distinctly marked, but officers will be guided in their action by the principles laid down by the Su preme Court of the United States in the case of Ableman vs. Booth; 21 Howard, p. 606." " Now, in the name of all the gods at 11 once, upon what meat-doth this our Caesar " feed that he has grown so great ?" Does ho pretend to say that he has put citizens of Virginia into the bands of his soldiers as prisoners ? If not, then he has arro gantly assumed to order the State officers of Virginia to continue to hold prisoners in virtue of his departed authority, and to make a certain return to any writ of ha beas corpus that may be hereaftor served upon them. This he has no sort of right to do. It is sheer usurpation. Wo cannot characterize such conduct as it deserves to be characterized without violating our Bense of propriety. We stated lately that Generul Sherman, the head of all the armies of the United States, had respectfully requested the Legislature of West Virginia to cede to Congress exclusive jurisdiction over the Federal cemeteries in that State. He did so because the Federal Constitution ex pressly prohibits the Government from exorcising exclusive jurisdiction over any such place without the consent of the States. But what says Canby ? " 6. At all forts, arsenals, light-houses, custom-houses, cemeteries, and other public establibhments,' whether held by original cession or by recent occupation under the laws of the United States, the jurisdiction will be held to be exclusively in the United States until otbci wiso directed by law or other proper authority." Hero is a palpable, plain, known viola tion of the Federal Constitution, for which ho ought to be cashiered. Again : Canby decrees: " 10. The term of office of all officers of tho provisional government of the State oi Vii-ginia, whether holding by original elec tion or appointment under the laws of the Btate or by appointment or detail under the laws of tho United States, will expire when thoir successors elected or appointed undei the new Constitution shall have duly quali fied." As wo said yesterday, these officers con tinue in office until their successors are qualified, not because Canby so orders, but" because the Constitution and the schedule accompanying it so provide. If Canby has the right to say that they shall con tinue in office, he would of course have the right to say that thoy shall not continue in office. He has nothing to do with it. Every line of his parting order that was intended to operate upon any officer or person not In the army is utterly null and void. It is no more entitled to respect than the gab bling of a goose. The Inauguration. An interesting day is near at hand, and we think it deserves to bo marked by pub lio ceremonies expressive of the feelings which we are sure it must inspire. It is the day of tho inauguration of the State ^rough the inauguration of the Governor, ^ andtlitSJiulling jn.motion all the depart V ments of theGovernment under tho direc ^ tion of the people who speak tho voice of Virginia. This great State, through civil war and pains and penalties inflicted upon her peo ple, has boen prostrate and grieved at heart for almost five long years. At last she is equul among the States. She enters this ring, although poor in money and a great sufferer in trade and in other respects, with her natural endowments unimpaired, the riohest of all the States. Ilei^ fame is brighter than ever. And evory sign pro mises a career of physical growth and power equal to the force and dignity of her public honors. Now, when a State thus tried, thuB favored, and thus endowed, is about re acquiring he* position in the Republic, it would be in every way fitting that the event should be signalized by some such ceremo nies as would impress us all that Virginia lives. It will have a good effect both at home and abroad. We believe an effort to arrange for such ceromoniea is already being made, and we wish it success. The House of Representatives on Thurs day passed a bill to amend the Virginia admission act so as to provide that mem bers of the Virginia State Government may take an affirmation in cases where scruples of conscience prevent them from taking the usual oath. This for the benefit of Friend CBKfStuw, we suspect. A bill confirming and amending the char ter of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad Company was unanimously passed by the Senate of the Wheeling Legislature on Tuesday. The bill goes to the House, which will pass it of course. It gives the new company more time in which to complete the western end of the road. The time granted by the charter is nearly at an end. The bill passed by the House of Repre sentees on Thursday prevents the trane-: mission oi newspapers free from the offices of publication, and also compels the pay ment of postage of exchange papers be twain nwnrp?p? dfflcw. But ? t ?ftgs It, and the House knew it would not when it allowed the bill to go through so quickly. A New View of the Fifteenth Amend ment. , The moment the ratification o t .0 t??th amendment 1? completed. cornea part of the ^^^nemuHon ment it becomes a part? t! ftTiBtine S it will render noil ?"d ?id anj law that may bo inconmeten ^ \ow under this amendment, every State will 'hare tho right to require any qu?li&? tion in a negro rotor which it alee requmed in a white one, It follows in<m,abl^t| tho moment this amendment becomes a p | of the Constitution, all that psrtof the art admitting Virginia to representation in Congreaa which is inconsistent with th rnendment, will bo at <??*>?away rith and be as if it had nerer been. This we ay down as certainly true. Nfcrthe'?' he people of Virginia will not b?'^ly trail themselres of the right which they trill thui aoquire. General Butler. We think that the personal bistory of General Butler since the war will illus trate the fate of that BViut f * * revengefulnoss which manifested ltself tho imposition of pains, penalties, and di - franchisements of the southern people, it has, like General Butler, gradually lost strength, until now it has become so unpopu lar that it can no more control the actio of the Federal Legislature, in which body it lingered longer than anywhere else. See how General Butler has steadily lost ground m the House of Representatives. He kept alive the embers of hate, and whipped m the lukewarm partisans upon the question 0 reconstruction. He fell heir to Thad. Ste VBV>'S rod, but not sound and strong as when in Thad.'s hands. It was broken and frazzled, and ineffective. Yet lus invec-, Ives for a time, seconded by a fear of the lopular sentiment,?a fear of that sentiment >ecause it was misunderstood?did drive nembers. But a little light from tho nasscs, the unmistakable disgust for the accesses of Radicalism, have robbed Butler >f his accessories, and his worn-out whip now but excites derision. A deserter from the Democratic party and the " strict construction " principles, naturally ho must be over-zealous in his new alliance, and commend himself by sur passing the most thorough of those who oven built up the Republican party. As Mr. Fakssworth sayB, he " swears." Ho rushed to the front and boldly attempted to cake tho lead, and thus invoked the ani mosity of many older and better soldiers than himself. Ho only answered their sar casms with tho lash, with imputations upon their consistency and party loyalty ! Thus he lias nursed the wrath of his adversaries, and at last brought down upon himself their united fire. Unsuatained by public opiuion he wavers, and halts, and blunders, and is so seriously damaged by all of his assail ants, is so utterly unable to maintain him self, that, like bewildered Othello, when calamities crowded upon him, he may ex claim, " I atn not valiant neither, Hut every puny whipster gets my ?word. General Butler indeed has been sustain ed by the reconstruction measures. Recon duction lias been his breath, liis meat and drink. The moment that was ended he seemed to have foreseen his fate, and he has struggled to agitate and to prolong it. Like a negro overseer on a southern plantation,, he was overhearing, abusive, and c??*' He believed that in no other way could he stand superior over those subjected to his ferocious tyranny. And now reconstruction may be consid ered as ended, and General Butler is about ended with it. During tho week the general detestation of the House of Repre sentatives for the man has been so manifest that he must have suffered intensely.. When Mr. Dawes so handsomely replied to the General's personalities both Republi cans and Democrats Burrounded him and shook him most cordially by tho hand, reneral Butler is on the "facilis iles ffus," along with the monstrous passions ,n which ho has subsisted for years. The ntry is, thank God, to bo delivered m them and, we trust with all possible iel, of the trains upon the downward The fourteenth amendment is operative with or without enacting clauses providing penalties, and we wait further develop ments from the logical and grammatical Dis patch before we throw up our hat.?Frede ricksburg Herald.

What our correspondent says in the fol lowing communication as to one of General Canby'a acts of usurpation is true. Mr. Sumner considers the General a good lawyer, but we suppose that no one else considers him such. His rule is ended?no thanks to him: " Mr. Editor,?The public would like to know upon what authority General Canby has presumed to extend the stay law ten days beyond the ratification of the new Constitution by Congress. Every one of common sense knows that so soon as the Constitution is ratified by Congress the present stay laic ceases to exist, without the formality of a repeal by the Legisla ture. "The hew Constitution expressly and positively prohibits the existence or enact ment of any Btay law whatever. If Gene ral Canby has the power to suspend that provision of the new Constitution abolish ing the stay law for ten days after the rati fication of the said Constitution, he has the power to suspend the operation of the new Constitution for any time he may think proper after its ratification by Congress. General Canby has not the legal or consti tutional right to extend this stay law one hovr after its ratification by Congress. His authority over this matter ceases with the ratification of this instrument. Such an unwarrantable usurpation of power will, of course, not be regarded by the people of Virginia. This stay law is now acknow ledged to be tho greatest curse that was ever inflicted upon the people of Virginia. " Justice." The Life of Mary Russell Mitford, Authoress of Our Village, &c.
