Opinion of Attorney-General Hoar on
tnt Teat Oatt? in Virginia.
RICHMOND, September 4.-The following ia
Attorney-General Hoar's opinion received thia
morning bj General Canby :
A TT OUNI?-G ETF.RAT. '8 OFFICE, j
August 28,1869. |
3b Hon. John ?. Ravolinst Secretary of War .
Sra : I have the honor U, aknowledge the re?
ceipt of your letter of Joly 27th, 1869, in which
yon request my opinion upon so mach of the
question submitted in the letter of tbe Com
?oanding-General of the Firs*; Military District,
dat ed the 16th inst., and accompanying pipers,
copies of which are inclosed,sB refers to the le?
gal qualifications of officers to be cl ' ,f'.d under
the proposed Constitution of the st:: io of Vir?
ginia, and especially upon the quee..ou whether
persons elected to office in such St at ? under said
constitution are required by the supplemental
Reconstruction act of July 19th, 1867, to take
jand subscribe to the oath prescribed or referr?
ed to in section 9 of said act before entering
upon tbe duties of their respective offices
The latter question is the only one indicated
with such distinctness as to enable me to be
fully satisfied that its purport is apprehended,
and I therefore confine my answer to that. By
tbe statute of April 10th, 1869. the registered
voters of 'Virginia were authorized to vote on
the question of the adoption of a constitution
for tue State and at the same time to elect
officers under it, snbkot to the approval of
Congress. The vote has been taken in pur?
suance of the provisions of the act, and the
election held; and some parts of the constitution
submitted have bsen adopted by the people
and others rejected. The parts of the proposed
constitution thus adopted, if this should be
approved by Congress, will be the Constitu?
tion of Virginia, under which all its officers
will be required to act, and the qualifications
as well as the duties of those officers will be de?
termined by it. When Virginia is restored to
its proper relations to the country, as a State
of the Union, its officers and Legislature will
be such as the Constitution of tbe State pro
rides, deriving their powers from that instru?
ment, and it will clearly not be in the power of
Congress to impose any requirement of addi?
tional qualifications apon them, different from
those which, under the Constitution of the
United States, may be required in all the
States. . If, therefore, any tests were *o be im?
posed upon members of the Legislature, not
provided by the Constitution of Virginia, or any
restriction imposed anon the people of the
State in their choice of officers not re-,
cognized by it, and not made applica?
ble under the legitimate powers ol Con
gres? to al! the States, tbe Legislature and
officers would not. m my opinion, be tho
Legislature and officers ot Virginia under its
constitution. I do not see that Congress can
undertake to furnish the State with a suitable
Legislature to start with, or to exercise any
control over its composition which could not
be exercised over bubsoquetit Legislators. I
therefore, of opinion that the oath pre?
scribed by the statute of 1862, and bv the
Htatnte ot July 19,1867, chapter SO, section 9.
required to be taken by dil persone elected or
appointed to office in said military districts,
under any so-called State or municipal authori?
ty, is not to be required ot the officers of the
State of Virginia or members of the Legis?
lature elected under the new constitution.
It does not seem to mo that the pre?
visions of this ninth section which are
applicable to ibe government of the State
undur military authority were intended to ap?
ply to tue Legislature and offices under whom
the State is to be restored to its proper rela?
tion'} to the Union, and by whom tbe govern -
ment of the State is to be administered after
its restoration. This opinion is strongly con- -
firmed by a reference to the second section of
the same sot, which authorizes the comman?
der of any district named in the act to sus?
pend or remove from office or from the per?
formance of official powers any officer or per?
son holding or exercising, or professing to
hold or exercise; any civil or military office or
dnty m said district, under any power, elec?
tion, appointment or authority derived from,
or g anted by, or claimed nader any so-called
State or the government thereof, and to detail
s competent officer or soldier of the army to
perform such duties. It would be imposai ole
to suppose that Congress could intend that s
Legislature under i be constitution of a State,
could have its members appointed by a detail
from soldiers of the army. The only reasona?
ble conclusion seems to me to bo that it was
not intended that any snob Legislature should
be allowed to exist and act until reconstruction
was completed, except for the limited and qual?
ified purposes requisite to reconstruction.
But, on the other band, I fully concur with the
view of the general commanding in Virginia,
that under the Reconstruction acts ot Con?
gress no officer or legislator is competent, or
should be permitted to exercise any of the
functions or power of bis office within that
State, except so far as those acts themselves
provide, without taking the oath which is re?
ferred to in the Statute of 1867, above quoted.
The act of April 10th, I860, requires the Legis?
lature to meet at a tims whicu it designates.
That it is to meet, implies tbat it is to come to?
gether for some purpose. It is requir?
ed under the previous law to act upon
the question of adopting tho Fourteenth
amendment to the Constitution of the
? United States before the admission of the
State to representation in Congress. I am of
the opinion, therefore, that it may come to?
gether, organize and act upon tbat amend?
ment; ont that until Congress shall have ap?
proved the constitution and the action under
it, and shall have restored the state to its pro?
per place in tbe Union, by recognizing its form
of government as republican, and admitting
it to representation, the Legislature is not en?
titled and could not, without violation of law,
be allowed to transact any business or pass
any act or resolve or undertake to assume any
other function of a Legislature if the test oath
bas not been required of its members, and
that no officer elected under the new constitu?
tion can enter upon the duties of his office
without taking toe oath while military gov?

THE ENGLISH PRESS AND THE 8T0WE-B1
LoNDON.September 8.- The London Time
day bas an editorial on tbe article in tbe Atla
Monthly by Mrs. Stowe, in relation to Lord
Lady ByroD. Tbe writer, after commentin;
the character and position of Lord Byron, i
aiders Mrs. Stowe's story a faithful repwx
tion of Lady Byron's statement to her so
tors. The latter do not hesitate in manifes
a desire to discredit, but do not contradict
story. It is impossible that Mrs. Stowe nm
stood once and forgot afterwards the subs
tia! part of tbe statement, but it is perfe
possible and probable that the wife was a
tim of delusion. We eau flod nothing inc?
patiblc with such hypothesis. On the com
ry, the story unintentionally confirms it.
bave vainly searched to see wbat Lord By:
said and did to confirm suspicions of guilt, i
only find vague expierons that tbe wife i
fully convinced The fact is startling, but
less eo when wo remember that she thou
him insane. Wo cannot conjecture how
wife came to entertain the suspicion, but i
easily understand how, once entertaining
she first imposed on herself, and tben on 1
Stowe. It would only be wbat thousands
unhappy wives have done before, to bave s
picions of exceptional ^enormity. This qc
accounts for doubts of ber husband's sanity
The Pall Mall Gazette on this subject sa
"Whatever may be the reasons that dsterm
ed Wentworth and his sister to postpone 1
publication of Lady Byron's papers, M
Stowe cannot be such a serious offender, if t
grandchildren seriously thought of printi
them. Tho solicitors, in thei** letter recen
published, make no charge of iua:curacy, b
of incompleteness. Tbe inference is that M:
Stowe's statement ie correct, but fiore remai
to be told."
Tbe Morning Poet also has an article on t
question, wherein the writer save: "As La
Byron's will committed ber papers to the ca
of trustees under certain conditions, and
Mrs. Stowe was not one, ber story is entir<
gratuitous and unauthorized. She bas coi
mitted a breach of confidence reposed in b<
and the offence, by her own showing, docs n
admit of extenuation. lhere was no error
judgment in toe matter. It is for Mrs. Stoi
to explain her motives. It does notsigni
whether Mrs. Stowe was ignorant of the ten
of the will or not. The violation of confident
outrage on the dead, and disregard of feelin
of the living, are tbe same. She oustit
know tbe public confidence cannot be offendi
THE TIMES AND NAPOLEON.
LONDON, September 3.-A correspondent
to-day's Times, speaking of calamity in tl
cotton trade, says it was owing to the increa<
of the consuming power at a time when tl
raw material was decreasing. He argues thi
it would be folly in American planters to gro
five millions of bales at double the expense <
land and labor, when the same profit will I
realized fiom half that amount. Ho is certai
a well arranged trial must convince the spit
uer of the benefit of co-operating in growing.
The Times says the indisposition of the ? ri
peror is a gain for the people. It bas mad
tbem feel that nations must survive individu
als, and their destinies must not hang on on
life. It will be the Emperor's fault if his is
disposition be not a gain for himself and bi
dynasty. He must suffer no relapse to fini
him unprepared. He rou3t admit the posai
biliiy of the world's going on without bim, ant
honestly endeavor to set it going. To achievi
this he bas only to make good Prince Napo
leon's words, and most base the empire on i
policy unreservedly liberal.

TWENTIETH DAV'S PBOCEEDINOS.
G BIENVILLE, S. C., September 2.-The fol?
lowing is the presentment of the grand jury:
TN THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES,
FOB THE WE8TEBN DISTRICT OF SOUTH CARO?
To the Hon. George S. Bryan, Judge of the
The grand jury of the said court, foi tho
August term of 1869, respectfully present that,
in accordance with your Honor's instructions,
they have visited tbe county prison and are
pleased to hod that the persons confined there?
in are kindly cared for by thc jailor. The com?
fort of tbe prisoners, however, will require that
more blankets and mattresses oe provided, and
that fuel and lights should be supplied to
them. The prison ?H necessarily close, and, in
its present crowded condition, can with diffi?
culty be kept in good order, i he com?
fort, cleanliness and good health of the
place would be imnroved by the use of
lime au a disinfectant. The grand jury
would therefore recommend that a sufficient
quantity, to be used for this purpose, is fur?
nished tbe jailor. J he per diem allowed the
jailor for dieting the prisoners is considerably
less than th it allowed by tho Stale for like pur?
poses, and at the preseat pric?s of provisions
ist vi small to remunerate tho jailor f jr fur?
nishing sufficient and wholesome food. The
kitchen ami smoke-houses connected with the
jail tbey find to be in a dilapidated condition,
and wholly insufficient for the purposes for
which they aro intended. Tho grand jurv res?
pectfully present that in their judements hu?
manity as well as the public service requires
that the county jul should bo enlarged or that
a separate prison shoulu bo erected for the use
ol the United States. They would also respect?
fully ask ot the Congress, an appropriation o f
money from the public troihury, tor tho build?
ing of a suitable courthouse in thia ?itv. lor
tho use of this court, and tor tbe erection of a
i be grana jury are happy to be ab!o to con?
gratulate the court, and especially the- county,
upon tho quiet and order which prevails
tbrou2hont thc State. Though a great revolu?
tion ha? shaken the very foundations of so?
ciety, and war has been accompanied with that
demoralization which is inseparable from strife,
the cheerfulness with which the people have
returned to the necessary labor and vocations
of life; the patience with which they seem to
be striving by honest industry to repair their
broken fortunes, and their ready obedience to
thc laws, furnish a gratifying assurance that
tho demoralization of war was bul a transient
blight, and that they deserve to posse an, as
their fathers deserved and possessed, the full
pow. rs of self-government.
Seeing that the people still retain and cher?
ish that love of order and obedience to law
which has BO long distinguished the Anglo
Saxon race, and fitted its sonn to achieve,
enjoy and perpetuate the larc est liberty; con?
scious that no reason any longer exists why
the most cordial and fraternal feelings should
not UDite the people of every section of the
Uniou in the enjoyment of a common country,
a common constitution, and the blessings of
umform and righteous laws, the grand jury
venture to express the hope that the disfran?
chisement whtcii ha? oppressed so many of the
wise-stand most patriotic of oar citizens, and
deprived the State of their valuable services,
may bo speedily removed; and the grand jury
most respectfully request those gentlemen who
havo sought and have undertaken the honora?
ble and responsible office of repre-?ontiDg the
people of the State in the Congress of the United
States to ase every honest mentis which their
high position may bestow upon them, to accom?
plish speedily this desired end. Feeling that
tho virtue and efficacy of legislation must al?
ways depend mainly upon thc cxisteuce of a
perfect accord between the people and those
vho undertake to represent thurn in their
Legislatures and in Congress, tho grand jury
most fervently hope that DO personal influence
or party exigency will ever enable aay ambi?
tious aspirant to take a scat in their Legisla?
ture, or in the Congress to which bc has not
been elevated by a majority of thc legal voters.
Every lover of repub ican institutions must
feel the importance of preserving the purity of
election.*; none bat the bad could desire to cor?
rupt or degrade the ballot, or to accept a posi?
tion of honor and trust without tho sanction of
the virtue and intelligence of tho people.
The grand jury cannot close their present?
ment without expressing their obligations to
his Honor, thc presiding Judgo, for thc kind
attention which be has bestowed upm them,
the patience with which te bas from time to
time instructed them in their duty, and re?
lieved them by his clear expositions of the law
of much of th? difficulties bet?re them.
All of which is most respectfully submitted:

THE POLITICAL SITUATION.
Massachusetts to be Thrown Overboard.
The Washington correspondent of the Bal?
timore Gazette, writing on the 3d, gives aa
interesting sketch, of the political situation.
He Baye :
I telegraphed a week a?o rumors ofadis
agreeni nt between President Grant and Secre?
tary Boutwcll. Farther developments moro
than confirm these rumors. It is now quito
certain that, alter much vacillation, the Provi?
dent will finally cut loose from the ultra Radi?
cal wiug. Under Dont well's guidance he secs
nothing but defeat staring him in the face.
Look at tho result in Virprinia an<l in Tennes?
see ! lt is not considered good Generalship to
change front in face of the enemy, but there
really seems no other course to pursue. On
thc one hand there is certain defeat.
On the other-perhaps defeat also; but it
is thought advisable to try a change of
tactics, even though it be but a forlorn hope.
Massachusetts will no longer be permitted to
control the government. Boutwell will have
abundant leis ne to mature his presidential
schemes in Boston, and Hear can rest on bis
laurels as a lawyer who manufactures parti?
san opinions, regardless of law or facts. Wil?
son will have to run his race for the Uaited
States Senate against the wily Butler, without
backets; and Sumner, not being able to fur?
ther mar, or meddle in, our foreign affairs, will
have an opportunity to look into domestic
affairs, of which he will no doubt avail him?
self. It must not bo inferred that the mil?
lennium has arrivo.1. The President bas sim?
ply had to give way beforo the inevitable logic
of facts. He sees that the Boutwellites will as
surely be defeated in Texas and Mississippi as
they "were in Virginia and Tennessee; and as
the Conservative Republicans promise to tup
port bis policy-a rash promiee, it must be
confessed, as tho ways of his policv are past
finding out-be thinks it as well to be OD thc
A correspondent of tbe Augusta Constitu?
tionalist gives this pleasaut account of the
officers ia attendance at Barnwell court :
Colonel N. G. W. Walker is the sheriff. We
are informed he is an excellent officer, and es?
teemed by the bar for his prompt attention to
business and uniform politeness. He is a na?
tive of the district, and waa a good sheriff in
the olden time.
Captain W. 8. Neeland is the clerk of the
court. He is also said to be a ~x>d officer-is
polite to the bar and the people, and attentive
to his duties. He ie a carpet-bagger, and
comes from Massachusetts.
Mr. J. N. Teague is the Probate Jodee. The
jurisdiction of this court bas been very much
enlarged by the new Legislature, and I am in?
formed Mr. Teagne gives general satisfaction.
He is a native, and resided in ridgefield before
he came to Barnwell.
Conversing with Judge Aldrich, he remarked
that the district bad boen verv fortunate in
obtaining men so well qualified, and who are
disposed to administer their offices for the
benefit of the country. He said be had not
observed or heard of any extortion or oppres?
sion by the officers, and ho attributed it alto?
gether to the tact, with one exception, that
they were natives, who bad heretofore occu?
pied a good social position, and it was lucky
for the people they were able to take the oath
of office required.
Talking to the lawyers and the people gener?
ally, I came to the conclusion that they were
all very much disgusted, and looked upon the
court as a mere farce, and a porfect caricature
of justice as heretofore administered in south
Carolina. Poor old Statel grand in ber pover?

endure the humiliations heaped upon tbeml

was low or meau or grovelling. His nature was
eminently affectknate, and in all tue relations of

the warmth ol bishe&vt and tro sincerity ol his love;
never professing what he did not feel, ll has been
well said, that "the indispensable basis ot all high
character is unspotted integrity and unimpeached
honor." 'iii ese noble virtues were his, and, amid
the varied and tryiue, semes of life, they shone with
conspicuous brightness. He has left behind him un
unstained record, at'd bis memory will ever b* hon?
ored and cherished by a large circle of mourning
and admiring iriends.
His last hour? wc e hours of intense and pro?
tracted pain and anguish, but be bore his sufferings
with meekness and submission, expressing-not a
wish to die-but a period willingness to go wnenever
lt should please Uod to call bim, and wah au hum?
ble hope of pardon and salvation through the nierirs
of a crucified Bedcemcr.
"No further seek his merits to disclose,
Nor draw his iraillies from their dread abode;
There they a'iko-in trembling hope repose
The besom cf his Father and hie God."

ANCE COMPANY, ATLANTA DEPARTMENT.
To the Peoplt of South Carotina:
The above Company was or.'an zed in 16CG, in
consequence of thc wholesale forfeiture of Southern
policies by Northern companies. Thc unparalleled
success of the enterprise has forced several of these
companies to restore their Sont' ern policies, from
the fact that they could not operate in our midst
without the appearance of honesty.
We keep all our money at home to bnild up our
impoverished country-every dollar of premium
teing safely invested in the State irom which it is de?
rived. The institution ls purely Southern, and hence
shon'.d appeal with great force to the patriotism and
and sympathy of every Southern heart.
'Tis not our purpose to make war on other com?
panies, but to exhibit the special advantages off. red
by thia purely Southern Company-founded on
patriotism and solid wealth. Its ratio of assets to
liabilities-thc true test of a company's strength-ls
second to none on this continent, boin; nearly $300
Wnenever and wherever we have prescuted the
claims of this Company, it has not only enlisted the
sympathies of our people, but has also secured their
hearty co-operation. We have secured 600 policies
in South Carolina since the 10th of February. We
number arnon;; our Directors General Wade Hamp?
ton and Colonel Wm. Johnston, gentlemen well
known to every citizen of South Carolina. We ap?

assist in pushing forward this deservedly popular

?"SOLOMON'S BITTERS.-THIS PRE?
PARATION, compounded by one of our oldest and
most esteemed dtuggiste, baa, during the short time
in which it has been offered to ihe public, attained
a reputation which bas almost entirely driven ont of
market tbe various tonics and stimulants which, for
a few mon'bn, by exorbitant puffing and heavy ad?
vertising, succeeded in building a profitable busi?
ness for lh-ir projector*.
Solomon's Bitters are not of the flashy style, de?
pending upon large advertising, bought pnffs and
fictitious recommendations for a sale to a gullible
public. Their composition is well known to and ap?
proved by many of our best physician11, and the pro?
prietors depend upon the intrinsic merits of their
medicine to make lt as popular as it is curative.
They do net pretend to oller a medicinal prepara?
tion that will cure all the ills that flesh is heir lo,
but they do contend that the judicious use of these
Bitlers will greatly alleviate human suffering, and
bring very many to a state of comparative health
who have lon; been strangers to that errat blessing.
One good genuine recommendation of any pro?
fessed curative is worth dozens or hundreds of
bought certificates, and the Messrs. SOLOMONS
have only published a few out of the hundreds of un?
solicited testimonies which tho have received We
this morning give a copy of a letter from Bon ALI-X.
