Wednesiay Morning, April 4,1866.
The New York Times very truly
says that Secretary MeCulloch does
not exaggerate when he declares that it
will "be a national calamity if Con?
gress shall fail to grant additional
powers to the Secretary. " The whole
tenor of his letter to the Chairman of
the Ways and Means Committee
shows that these additional powers
are sought, not to magnify his office
or enable him to carry out a policy
of the principles of which the coun?
try is ignorant, but merely to enable
him to hold gamblers and inflation?
ists in subjection, and to maintain
unfalteringly the policy which has
already been attended with the hap?
According to some of Mr. McCul
loch's opponents, the great source of
financial danger lies in what they
allege to be excessive importations of
foreign goods. They complain that
speculation is rife, and that to restore
specie payments, it is only necessary
to restrain the speculative spirit in
business matters. It does not seem
to have occurred to them that the
speculative operations of which they
complain, are an incident inseparable
from an inflated currency-that they
originated, in common with many
other speculations, in the flood of in?
convertible paper, which was occa?
sioned by the necessities of war-and
that they will continue so long a.
Congress shall resist the efforts of the
Treasury to "adopt a healthy finan?
cial policy." The gentlemen whc
profess to deprecate ballooning ic
business, and to desire the restora?
tion of trade to a sound basis, make
themselves responsible for much ol
the existing evil when they refuse tc
sanction the policy of contraction, ol
\ which the Secretary is the consistent
, \ and the cautious advocate.
Others rest their refusal upon th?
allegation that the country is pro
greasing toward resumption rapidly
enough. That it bas made som?
~~ p"r?grsss in that direction is undenia
i ble. That the appreciation in tin
P value of greenbacks during the las
few months has exceeded popular ex
pectation, is perhaps equally true
But to what is the gratifying circum
for, stance attributable? Certainly in par
to the determined stand which th
present Secretary made against a con
tinuance of inflation and in favor o
a return to a specie basis. Nobod;
doubts that the enormous premiux
upon gold which was maintainer
during the closing year of the wai
was less the result of l?gitim?t
causes than of the gambling comb:
nations, whose operations were pm
sued with an utter indifference t
everything but their own profit. Bc
for the gamblers, greenbacks mig!
have been kept at a steady and nc
immoderate discount. And why is
paper dollar worth more to-day tha
it was six months r go? Why has tb
price of gold declined continually
until men begin to speak with cont
dence of the time when five dollai
in greenbacks shall be equal to in
dollars in gold, and when honest coi
shall once more enter into the tran,
actions of daily life? Why? Is
not because the known views an
policy of the bead of the Treasui
Department have cowed the go]
gamblers, and broken up their con
binations? Is it not because t)
power already wielded by the Seer
tary has been exerted to check wil
speculation, to frustrate knavish m
nouvres, and to prepare the money?
and the mercantile classes for a r
turn to the honest, old-fashione
basis of gold and silver? Is it n<
also because the authority sought I
thc Secretary would make his piai
yet more efficacious, and because i
--^application in one shape or an otb
has been anticipated?
The Charleston papers state th
President has issued a lengtl
proclamation, declaring that the ii
8iirrection which has heretofore e:
isted in the States of Georgia, Non
Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Al
bama, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missi
sippi and Florida is at an end, and
henceforth so to be regarded.
The telegram must have omitti

The General Conference o' the ?
Methodist Episcopal Churcli, South, ;
meets to-day in New Orleans. The j
result of the war has left the Church
in a very peculiar position in some
respects. First._ the title-"Metho?
dist Episcopal Church, South"-which
can be changed only by the General
Conference, is objectionable. The
Church does not propose to confine
its operations to the South, ''so
called.'" She has already, since the
war closed, received a large accession
of members from one of the annual
conferences formerly attached to the
Northern General^ Conference, and
proposes to get rid o? a sectional
name, so that her influence may be
co-extensive with the Union. The
title proposed by Drs. Doggett and
Edwards, pnd others, is "Episcopal
Methodist Church;" which strikes us
-who, perhaps, have no right to say
so-as being Very expressive, distinct?
ive and appropriate.
Another matter which will come |
b fore the General Conference, is the
question as to how long a minister
should be allowed to serve one con?
gregation. A strong disposition is
manifested by many of the most
thoughtful minds among the clergy,
to extend the period hitherto al?
We also notice that proposals are
made to publish the Episcopal ser?
vice in connection with the Disci?
pline, &c. From present appearances,
it would seem that the Methodist
Church will become blended with the
"Protestant Episcopal Church of the
I United States"-a happy re-union,
and in consonance with the advice of
the great founder of Methodism.
I President Johoson on Ireland.
We extract the following paragraphs
from the proceedings of a public
meeting and dinner held at Belfast:
The Chairman rose and said: Gen?
tlemen, I am perfectly certain that
the toast I am now about to propose
will receive a hearty response in every
?art of the United Kingdom of Great
iritain and Ireland, sud in no part
will it receive more than in the Pro?
vince of Ulster, and especially in the
town of Belfast. (Hear, and ap?
plause.) United as we are with the
great American nation in commerce,
and friendship, and common kindred,
we naturally take a deep interest iu
her concerns and prosperity, and we
all feel a deep interest in the Presi?
dent of the United States, whose
health I have now to propose. (Ap?
plause.) He came to his present po?
sition under circumstances we all
deplore. (Hear, hear.) Perhaps no?
where was there a more heartfelt ex?
pression of sympathy for those who
were affected by that fatal circum?
stance than in the town of Belfast
(applause)-but we rejoice to-day j
that the man who has succeeded him j
is fitted to fill that position. (Hear.)
All his acts have shown that he is the ?
man fitted for the high position in
which he is placed. He is a man of !
sound judgment-a man possessing !
what is a great acquisition-good
common sense. He is a man who is
desirous to forgive what is past, and
make the best of the worst. (Hear,
and applause.) Gentlemen, while
America has many things in common
with ourselves, we can now say that
he who sets his foot on American
soil, as well as British, is free-(ap?
plause)-and, therefore, with heart?
felt satisfaction and delight do we
drink "The health of his Excellency
President Johnson." (Loud ap?

To the R?dacteur en Cher of Tte
' Opinion Nationale.
MONSIEUR: I read in the Revue des
Deux Mondes, of the 1st February,
over the signature of M. E. Forcade,
the following sentences:
"English statesmen of our time
have intended to be just to Ireland,
and have shown themselves truly
bberal to her. Ireland has been ad?
mitted to all the liberties enjoyed by
One would have some difficulty in
comprehending Ijow a writer in the
celebrated Revue should be so very
ill informed on the affairs of Ireland,
but that we know the habit which
"liberal" publicists in France have
contracted, of taking all their infor?
mation upon our country from the
articles of the British press and the
speeches of English statesmen in
their Parliament. To say that Ire?
land is governed by the same laws as
England-that she has not to com?
plain of any inequality, nor of any
exceptional code of laws-and' that
the disaffection of that country is
nothing but a remnant of the old
national animosity, which may have
been justified, perhaps, a century or
two ago, but which is now an obvious
anachronism-to say, and to repeat,
and to persist in repeating all this, is
the fashion in England.
To show how completely these as?
sertions are contradicted by the facts,
it suffices to cite the following extract
from the declaration of Irish griev?
ances, lately published by the Nation?
al Irish League, (which has nothing
in common with Fenianism,) and
signed with the honorable names oi
John Martin and The O'Donoghue :
9. Although Ireland and England
are nominally "united" in one king?
dom, yet it is against the law foi
Irishmen to enroll themselves in vo?
lunteer companies for defence of theil
country, as the English do. And foi
Irishmen to train or drill, or be trained
or drilled-even without arms-is
made a felony, punishable by trans?
portation, by an Act of Parliamenl
which does not apply to England,
Scotland or Wales.
Since the year 1800, when the so
called Union was effected, very mam
acts of Parliament have been passed
relating to the possession and use oi
arms in Ireland, all calculated to keej
the great mass of our people un
armed. But no part of this code ap
plies to England, Scotland or Wales.
It is against the law for Irishmei
in Ireland to take counsel togethei
touching their own pubbc affairs bj
purpose. But this disab?ity doe?
not exist in England, Scotland O?
The above-mentioned laws-to pro
hibit conventions of delegates, to re
strict the possession of arms, and t<
punish training and drilhng-serv<
to prevent Irishmen both from au
thoritative consultation and from ef
fectual aotion in their own public af
fairs. None of those laws apply t<
Englishmen, who are nevertheles
styled our fellow-citizens.
10. In T. :?*land, trial by jury mean
trial by twelve of the neighbors im
partially impanelled, without ref erenc
to creed or to politics. But in Ire
land, when a man is charged wit!
anything styled a political offence
then trial by jury means arraignmen
before twelve particular persons care
fully selected by the Government ou
of its own partisans.
Even putting aside, for the mo
ment, all the other differences whicl
exist in the laws, and still more in th
administration of the two countries
it seems to me that a "libera!
Frenchman, without prejudices, oi
considering even the few detail
which I have mentioned, (and whicl
are sufficiently notorious,) should b
slow to affirm "that Ireland has beei
admitted to all the liberties enjoye*
As to tho matters or the packing o
Irish juries, the authors of the "De
claration of Grievances" have no
explained the means and methoi
whereby the British Government ha
always the power "to select the jury
men from among it? partisans." I
is by means of the sheriffs of th
towns, (where political trials ar
usually held, j It is these sheriffs, ii
fact, who arrange, entirely nt thei
own discretion, the lists of person
summoned to serve as jurors for ?acl
Assizes or Commission. Now, i;
England, the sheriffs of corporat
towns are always elected by thei
fellow-townsmen. In Ireland, the,
are all appointed by the Govornmeut
This fundamental distinction, care
fully preserved in the "Muuieipu
Reform Law for Ireland," was intend
ed expressly to put the British Gc
vernment in a position always to '?acl
ita jury, when there was a pol?tica
enemy to be suppressed.
It is right to add, that all this spc
cia! code of la>-s, applicable to ou
country aloneAare rr^etly justifie
in the eyes of Englishmen, even the
most " liberal," and by the following
If the Irish had the liberty, as the
English have, of electing delegates
and organizing a convention, they
would immediately publish a declara?
tion of independence.
If the Irish had the liberty, as the
English have, of banding themselves
together in arms as volunteers, they
would maintain, in arms, the declara?
tion of their convention. In fact, it
was a convention of Irish volunteers,
which, in 1782, pronounced tte inde?
pendence and sovereignty of the
kingdom ; and it was the arms of those
volunteers which made good that in?
dependence for eighteen years.
If the Irish had the liberty, as the
English have, of procuring arms, and
learning the use of them, the first use
they would put. them to would be to
exterminate the English garrisons.
If the Irish had the right, as the
English have, to be tried before
twelve of their peers and neighbors,
impartially empanelled according to
law, then it woidd be necessary for
the English Government to renounce
forever all attempts to convict any
Irishman whomsoever, of any crime
or offence whatever against the Queen
and Government of England; that is
to say, British government would no
longer subsist in that country.
Snch is the imperative necessity
for the English (if they desire to
maintain the British empire) to main?
tain and perpetuate in Ireland this
exceptional code-of which it is not
my purpose here to consider the jus?
tice and morality. But let no French- |
man again deny itr> existence.
In Memory or the Confederate Dead.
The Columbus (Ga.) ?Sun and Times
publisher the following communica?
tion, dated Columbus, Georgia,
March 10, 1866:
MESSRS EDITORS: The ladies are j
now, and have been for several days,
engaged in the sad but pleasant duty
of ornamenting and improving that
portion of the city cemetery, sacred
to the memory of our gallant Con?
federate dead, but we feel it an un?
finished work unless a day be set
apart annually for its especial atten?
tion. We cannot raise monumental
shafts, and inscribe thereon their
many deeds of heroism, but we can
keep alive the memory of the debt
we owe them, by at least dedicating
one day in each year to embellish
their humble graves with flowers.
Therefore, we beg the assistance of
the press and the ladies throughout
the South, to aid us in our efforts to
set apart a certain day to be observed
from the Potomac to the Rio Grande, ,
and be handed down through time as
a religious custom of the country, to
wreathe the graves of our martyred
dead with flowers. [We would pro?
pose the-day of April, as at that
time our land may be truly called the
"land of flowers."] Let every city,
town and village, join in the pleasant
duty; let all alike be remembered,
from the heroes of Manassas to those
who expired amid the death throes
of our hallowed cause. We'll crown
alike thc honored resting places of
the immortal Jackson, in Virginia,
Johnson, of Shiloh, Cleburne, in
Tennessee, and the host of gallant
privates who adorned our ranks-all
did their duty, and to all we owe our
gratitude. Let the soldier's grave
for that day at least be the Southern
Mecca, to whose shrine her sorrowing
women, like pilgrims, may annually
bring their grateful hearts and floral
offerings. And when we remember
the thousands who were buried with
"their martial cloaks around them,"
without Christian ceremony of inter?
ment for their beloved bodies, we
would invoke the aid of the most
thrilling eloquence throughout the
land, to inaugurate this custom, by
delivering on the appointed day, this
year, an eulogy on the unburied dead
of our glorious Southern army.
They died for their country.
Whether their country had, or had
not, the right to demand the sacri?
fice, is no longer a question of dis?
cussion with us. We leave that for
the future nation to decide. That it
was demanded, that they nobly, re?
sponded, and fell holy sacrifices upon
their country's altar, and are thereby
entitled td their country's gratitude,
none will deny.
The proud banner under which
they rallied in defence of the noblest
cause for which heroes fought, or
trusting woman prayed, has been
furled forever. The country for
which they suffered and died has
now no name or place among the
nations of the earth. Legislative
enactments may not now be made to
do honor to their memories-but the
veriest radical that ever traced his
genealogy baok to tho deck of the
May Flower could not deny us the
simple privilege of paying honor to
those who died defending tho life,
honor and happiness of the

that the determination of the radica

more decided in December thai

This disinclination, or rather hesita
tion, to follow the exact line of polic;
prescribed by humanity and justice'
arises, not from an absolute surren
der of former convictions, but fron
mistaken impressions that consilera
tions of expediency forbid action ii
strict accordance with them. A be
lief has been steadily growing in th
minds of members, that it would no
do to go before the people with th
question of political rights for th
negroes, and that if the immediate o
gradual elevation of the freed peopL
to political equality were made i
prominent issue in the elections dur
ing the coming summer and fall, tin
Republican party would be beaten
and lose predominance in the na
tional council. This apprehension
and the desire to avoid so calamitou
a contingency, has done more to rc
gu?ate the tone and character of poli
tical legislation during the last tw
weeks than a just regard for th
claims of the freedmen to Congrei
sioual interference in behalf of thei
undeniable rights. * * *
