The Tarboro' Southerner. Thursday, April 4, 1S72. Universal Amnesty. The long,delayed aud uiuchtalked of amnesty has ooiue at last, through a decision of the Supreme Court of the Uuited States. Id fact we have teen possessed of the much talked of rad oal comuiodity without eing aware of i;. The Supreme Court of -the United States have declared that all citizens Dot uuder indictment or preseotmeot, were fully aod entirely pardoned by the proclamation of Preside ot JohnsoD, July 4th, 1868, and are eutitled to hold auy ofUcc. except seats in congress of which each House is the judge. The World has the ibllumcg uotsee of this important decision : We may take the 21st of July, 1863, as the day on which the fourteenth amendment became part of the Cotsti tution of the United States. The position of congress will theu ba that on the 21st of July, 18GS, cer tain closes of citizens of the United Stales became ineligible to s:ate or lede ral office by reasou of their panieipa lion in rebellion, though previously eligible despite -ucli participation. In other words legal and political disabili ties uot theretofore existiuj. were then "imposed." T at the imposition ot these disabilities is a punishment cau uot be doubted. l'unishment and crime go together, and this very four teenth ameudmeot eaks io section 2 of participation iu rebellion or other crime.'' The disabilities imposed by the third Kectiou of the fourteenth ameriuieotd are therefore a punishment fur crime the crime of participation ia rebellion. Veuow come to the recent decision of the supreme court of the United States in the case of the United States vs. Klein, administrator of Wilson. Wilion had cotton which was sold as captured cr abandoned property, and tho proceeds paid into the treasury. Kleio, as administrator, sued for the money in the Court of Oiaims, which gave judgment in his favor. Course! tor the United fetatcs appealed to the; supreme court, aud argued that uader j the terms of what is known as the J Drake proviso in the cre-uera! nprropri-; had no rights. This proviso" was in effect that, a presidential pardon, wheu pleaded iu either the court of c!uiiis j i r the t-upreiuj court, t.'iould prove j only that the person pleading had ' Leon engaged i; rebellion, but j not that he had beeu par- ! duned therefor. As the supreme court j put it, the pardon should "bo eoaeiu- j sive evidence ot the acts pardoned, but i Dul1 iilld void a3 evidence of the rights conferred by it." I he objector the; proviso was to evaue tnc iu;numenc or the promise made in the eariier amnes ty proclamations of Lincoln and John ton of a full pardon with restoration of all rights of property, save as to 1 slaves, on the taking and keeping ol a certain oath. Oa pleading Lis pardon the suitor was to be told that he bad thereby admitted participation ia the rebellion, and on this the courts were to dismiss the case as beiug one brought by a disloyal persou It will be seen, therefore, that the Drake proviso re pudiated the Executive promise of res toration of rights of property, and the supreme court held that it was not within the power of congress to thus nuliify the executive pardou. Iu sup port of this view the court laid stress 1 1 on the nature aodexteut of the pardon ing power. It said, through Chief J us tiee Chase, who delivered the opinion, the court being unanimous: "It is the Intention of the cons itution that each of the great coordinate departments of the government, the legislative, the executive, and the judicial shul be, iu its sphere, independent, of the others. To de executive alone is intrusted the power of pardon; aud it is granted without limit. Pardon includes amnes ty. It blots out the offence pardoned, and removes all its penal csusequens ces." The executive pardon blotting out the offence pardoned aud removing all its penal consequences, it follows that the amnesty proclamation of July 4th, 1868, blotted out the participation iu the rebellion of all persons save those under actual presentment or indictment therefor, and removed all the penal cjusequenees of such participation." Ihat proclamation reads: "Re it known that I, Andrew John son, president of the United States, do, by virtue of the constitution and in the name of the people of the United States, hereby proclaim and declare, unconditionally and without reserva tion; to all and every person who di rectly or iudirectly participated in the late insurrection or rebellion, excepting such person or persons as may be un der presentment or indictment io any court ot the United States naving com petent jurisdiction upon a charge of treason or other felony, a full pardon nd amnesty for the offence of treason against the United States, or of adher ing to their enemies during the late civil war, with restoration of all rights of property, except as to slaves, and except also as to any property of which auy person may have been legally di vested under the laws of the United States." Beyond Mr. Jefferson Davis and BJtne obscure person iuJicteJ ia East Tennessee, it is not known that any one was, at the date of this proclama tion, under indictment or presentment io the Federal Courts for participation ia rebellion, and the full pardon and amnesty bestowed by the proclamation exteud therefore, with these exceptions, to every participant in the rebel! on. On the 4th of July, 1868, then, it y be said that every person who partic pated, directly or indirectly, in the Ivtonion, Had that partioipatioa blot ilriillf 0 NUMBER 16. ted out and alt its penal cousequences removed. In contemplation of law he lay down to his rest on the night of that day is innocent of wrong and as un amenable to punishment as if he had never prrticipated iu the rebellion at all. Such then being the status on the 4 th of July, 1863, of those who parti cipated in rebellion, how comes it that oa and from the 21st of July, 1868, pertain classes of them are treated as if stilj guilty, still amenable to puotsh aient and still iu need of pardon ? July 4th, John Doo is eligible to any office; July 21 he cannot become a constable unless qualified there-unto by a two thirds vote of each House of Congress. How is this ? The only answer can be, that on the 21st sf July; 1863, the fourteenth amendment "became of force, aod by the tlurd section of that amendment disabilities were "imposed" on John Doe. But why imposed? Because he participated in the rebelliou and participation iu rebellion is a crime. But on the fourth of July, 18G3. Doe had his participation blotted out and all penal consequences of that offence removed. How revive that which is obliterated? How punish when the ground of punishment is gone? There i5 no answer to this; there can be none. The fourteenth ameudment expressly defines parcipation in rebellion is crime, and then punishes said crime by exclu sion firm orSee- But who can bo thus excluded? Only tho:-e guilty of the crime. And who are guilty? .Certain ly no man is whose participation was wa?hed away by the amnesty procla mation (,f July 4 1SUS, aud made as if it hud; never been. Only to those whose guilt remained unaffected by that proclamation does the punishment for guilt ordained by the third section of the fourteenth amendment apply. Neither Mr. Jefferson Davis nor the Tennessee man cau hold office under tho fourteeeth amendment, but all others aie, with an -exception to be now uoled, unaffected thereby. The excep tion is as respects congress. John Doe it coming t;p as a senator or represen tative, and met, when p'.eauiug his pardon, by the statement that each house is sole judge of tho qualifications of its members, would have to submit thereto. By virtue of the constitu tion as it was before toe fouitecuth amendment, that amendment c.tn be! made of force as respects admission to j congress. OtLcrwi.se than this, however, j ic cannot be lawluiiy uiado to apply, i ued if applied there is a remedy iu the courts. The simple plea is that the disabilities of the fourteenth amend ment apply only to those guilty of the crime o! participation in the rebellion, and no nun is so guilty whose offence in itself ar.d all its consequences was blotted out before that amendment be came law. Courtship and Matrimony. "Courting is fuu enough. I haven't e;ot a word to say against courting Its as good a way of killing a eveniug as I know of. Wash your face aod pat on a clein dicky, aud go and talk as sweet as honey, or molasses candy, for au hour or two to say nothing of a few kisses behiad the door, as your sweetheart goes to the steps with you. The fact is I've quite a genius lor courting. It's all sunshine aud no clouds "When I was a singlo mail the world wagged a!6ng well enough. It was likeau omnibus ; I was a passenger, puid my levy, aod had'ut r.othing more to do with it, but to si, down and not care a button for any thintr. S'posin the omnibu.-i got upset well, I wiiiks off and leaves the man to pick up the poiees. But then, I must take a wife and be hanged to rue. It's all very well for a while; but afterwards, it's plaguey like owning an upset omnibus. "What did I get by it! A jawing old women, aud three squallers. Mig hty diflereut from courting that is.

No the nabbers must have you. You can't go on a spree; for, when you come home missus kicks up the Devil's delight. You can't teach her better manners for Charleys are as thick as blackberries.

If twenty or mors teachers shall organize a Teachers Associ ation according to the provisions of the twenth-sixth section of the school law, and hold a Te tchers Institute of four weeks under efficient and com petent instruction at anytime during the year, and report to the Superint endent of Public Instruction, the Association will receive fifty dollars froia the State school funds and fifty dollars from the Peabody Educational Fund. The teachers of public and private schools are thus appealed to by the State and by the generous ofier of Dr. Scars, the General Agent ol tho Peabody Educational Fund Jdo something for their professioca The Tarboro' Southerner A Medium for B'lsmesa Coaimun'cation ADVERTISING RATES: SPACE. o 2 c s o o 1 V.

Teach ing is a progressive science, lie best teachers may be benefitted by au occasional contact with the thoughts and modes of others. I have examined the Virginia Educational Journal, a monthly perio dical of forty pages, published at Iiichir.ond, Va., and eonsidtr it a work of merit; exclusival Educational acd well cakula'td to promote improve ineot in teaching. If the teschfrs and school officers in North Carolina can be induced to accept this as the Journal of Educa ion for this State, I think an arrangement can effeetmt , by which lour or five pages cf tha Journal may be given for the exclu sive use of the Department of public Instruction in North Carolina, in which information relating to tha public 8hool system may be eonimuii icated. The price of the Journal is one dollar a year, this is about the cost of the paper and printing. If it is adi-pted for this State, I think aid may be cb taiucd to reduce the subscription pi ice to fifty ceuts a year for teachers and school officers. The teachers of the State cau do much for their profession by an earnest, united aod timely effoit. An Educational Journal and Organ, wcver, is essential. I, therefore, "St respectfully aod earnestly requ" f the teachers both of public and ivate school aud all schools officers the State to adopt this as the ucational Journal and Organ of Teachers Associations, and of puUio instruction in North Carolina. Every teacher and school officer iu the Stat who may concur and wish to subscribe fur the Journal will please give me notice by letter. If live hundred subscribers are obtained in the State, I think the price will be reduced to fifty cents a year as above stateq. Editors in the State will please pub lish this notice for information.

Bovy St. Vinceut states that the time is coining when the Mediter ranean will be nothirg more than a chain of lakes, and then a mighty river The Sea of Azof is already being converted into a (stream its shorts constantly approaching nearer to gether. ' Tracts of water which extend 'from the mouth of the Doa to the Straits of the Dardanelles may now be combarcd to Lakes Superior, Llurou, and Mic higan. When the great Island of Atlantis wente down, as Plato relates, covered with cties, it must have changed the sea boundaries exceedingly. Kivers arc forever in the process of changing their channels and shallowing by the debris they spread along their bott oms, DEEP ARTESIAN WEI LS. That of Crenelle, bored for the u-a of the slaughter-houses of Paris, is 1,771 feet deep. Water ascends uiuuy one feet above the surface, which shows a prodigious hydrostatic pressure som ewhere to drive a column with such force into the air. AtNeusalzmerk, near Mindcn, there is an aetesiau well 2,894 feet deep, out of which pours salt water. One wit hered some years since for a sugar refi nery, in St. Touis, Missouri, deeper still, being 2,624 feet in perpendicular depth. Whether still active or uot we have: not ascertained. The water in these deep recesses rises in temperature the further down below the level of the sea. In some ot' the geysers on this continent and in parts of Europe it is believed it may be heated in the bowels of the earth to six hunhred degrees: but in its ascent towards the surface it cools rapidly rarely being two hundred at its es cape. Where docs the water come from in these lower regions? It gathers ou mountains, and indeed everywhere, and trickles down seams and- disloc ations ot rock, porous etjata, Ac, till, reaching incandescent matter iu a state of fusiou, it is converted into steam, forced where there is least re sistance, becoming condensed into water again, but pushed on by steam behiad. INSIGNIFICANCE OF THE EARTH. M. Reclus, a celebrated astronom ical writer, says this earth is tlm lowest in rank among heavenly bodies. Where au astronomer on some other planet exploring the iminensi yof sp ce, this piaoet we inhabit, owing to in small size might readily elude his i: telligent view. The sun is 1,255,000 times larger, and yet that enormous mass is oul7 a tpeck a mere point which seems lost amid eighteen millions of stars which are discoverable by instruments iu thi milky way. -t What an incomprehensible organ the hum in brain, to have ascertained such, astounding facts, and demonstrated the laws which govern uuivereal nature !
