Sunday Morning, April 2?, 1816. | -( THf Ulot ut Norfolk. t We have noticed this riot, and its datid. results-thc killing ul two-'or. ' three white citizens. This killing of K t??zejn by a band of armed and .drunken negroes'engaged in celehrat >* ingtheir "civil rights/' lins, naturally ri * enough, created a profound sensation 'J l among the people of Virginia. On ?w rthe first information of tho slaughter .* . by these negroes, it vas put forth," probably by radical ?ims?iU?ios, tliat an attaok upon tho procession was commenced by "white rowdies," and th afr thereupon the "riot" followed. From the testimony taken -.-on Wednesday before the Mayor of Nor? folk, it. is shown that the negroes, * . many - of whom were defiantly and openly armed, :ts if anxious for a bloody issue, originated the dtstnrb* "" ance by assailing a police offier who. in pursuance of his duty, attempted to - arrest one of their number for a ?:? breach of thc peace. The account, 1 , ' taken from the published synopsis ol the testimony, reads: "Guy Holland, one of the marshal* ; - of the* day, fully corroborated th? statement of "Marshal Capps, tht white hacknmn, relative to the origil of the riot. Ho testified that tht riot was caused by the indiscretion o: one colored mau shooting a pisto loaded with a blauk cartridge a1 another colored mau. Policeniai Mosely ran up to arrest the partios when a colored man told him he hac no right to arrest any one. Th? officer drew a knife and commencer cutting right ami left. Then th< "? crowd set upon him and beat him." This, theil, was the origin of th< massacre that subsequently occurred Here we have a mob of au inferi?; race assembled together, clearly pre pared to shoot down any who niigh express disapprobation of their con duct, and even, as the event showed ready to resist tho legitimate authori ty of the city; inflamed with strong drink, and made insolent by th? approbation and applause of mei whose white skins belie tht; huo o their hearts. It is all very well ti talk of a quiet celebration of an even that is itself an insult to those arnon j whom the celebration occurs; bu ? ^*rhen drunken negroes are allowed t< - assemble in great throngs, arme? with deadly weapons, and utterly re gardless (both by reason of their na tive instincts and because of probabl immunity from punishment for an; crime that they may commit) of th lives of citizens, it becomes a seriou question whether those who permi these assemblies should not be heh accountable for the bloodshed natur ally ?irising from such occasions. If this is to bo one of tho "civ: rights" of the negro, common decei: cy and justice would seem to requii that the man, or men, whose low m tures find pleasure in seeing to it thr the armed negro is not deprived t his "right" to shed the blood of un armed white men, be removed froi the positions which they disgran anti which they use only to make pe: maneiit the bitterness growing ont < the war. This is the great troub lying in the path of thc President labor of rehabilitation; and it is stern duty with him, we conceive, I remove from tho sphere of their ev those mischief-makers who prom] acts of murder by refusing to inte pose their authority between the pe petrators of crime and the occasioi that afford an opportunity for tl shedding of blood. Another Proclamation. The Washington correspondent > the New York News says that tl President will soon issue auoth proclamation in regard to the statt of the Southern States, inclue!ir Texas, and stating explicitly th martial law is at an end, and the wi of /tabeas corpus restored. We t hope that tho President will, by pr clamation, sot this matter at rest. WHOLESALE DEALERS. Accordii to a recent decision of the Commi eioner of Internal revenue, "tl wholesale dealer should make retu of the gross amount of his sales, n the assumed or market value of fr goods sold, but the amount for whi the goods were actually sold."

Tyranny. We have already called attention t the fact that President Johnson calle the Congress usurpers. The Nei York Herald very justly says that tb radical papers are unable to see ho Congress can be a tyrant. Jast n easy as 0ae man can bo a tyran About 200 years ago, tho Danes, t get rid of the tyranny of their noble threw all their power into the hain of their king-and for abusing tin ; power they were obliged to kill bin j Tho same occurred in Norway an j Sweden. For a space of '500 year I but one king was allowed to die natural death in these countries. Tl history of il reece ami Rome at tos that a tyrannical senate may be mo; j oppressive and moro difficult to g rid of than a bad king. The poop of France were twioo saved from tl tyranny of their nobles by transit ring their powers to tho king. I another -way thc same illinois passii herc, where the President is strivii to protect the people from thou.su potions and despotism of Congres Congress is now a tyrant, which <1 serves whatever fate a virtuous ai free people can give it.

THE CAPTURED KOVTHEUN GOLD. - The correspondent of the New York News says: It will be remembered that after the surrender of General Lee, the mili? tary in Georgia captured SlOO.000 in gold which was claimed by the Farm- ' er's, tlie Exchange and the bank of Virginia at Richmond. Recent hives ^g?tions of the f:icts, however, show that a few weeks before the evacuation , of Richmond, tlie Legislature of Virginia passed a law authorizing the i said banks to loan the Confederate Government, upon the faith of the i State, $300,000 of gold to purchase supplies for Lee's anny. This sum was placed by tho respective banks to the credit of the Confederate Govern? ment, and before the surrender of Lee 300,000 was paid, leaving $240,-1 000 belonging to the Confederate Government with these banks at the time of the evacuation. The Govern ment therefore claims not only the $100,000 captured in Georgia, but also the $14.0,000 additional in custody of the banks. This is the present j condition of the question. The notes of these banks have been bought upi with the expectation that the Govern? ment would relinquish its title to the 8240,000 of gold. THE CIOAII Sinr. We noticed in a brief paragraph, a few days ago, the ! trial trip of a small craft owned by the Messrs. Winans, of Baltimore! The vessel is a small steamer, 72 feet in length, 0 feet in diameter, 21 tons burdon, and propelled by a 20 horse? power iti.";li pressure i i?".i11<-. with a 3 bladed propeller, of I feet 10 inehes ; diameter. Theyaehf started im her voyage during a heavy sea, and while ? a stiff breeze was blowing. She was under water to within a few inches below her centre; her engines worked admirably, and thc waves glided b> tho right and left of her prow; and there was no rollin;;' of the vessel as the seas struck ber. The trial tii?> of this unique vessel was a most sue- j cossful one. .? . ? TAX ON INCOME FROM ABROAD.

THE CHOLERA. The New York Ileruttl says that ten additional oases ol* cholera were received on board of tho hospital ship on .Monday, and up to ton o'clock that morning but ono more death than those previously reported had occurred The passen? gers on board of the steamer England still remain in a healthy condition, and altogether affairs nt quarantine are progressing very satisfactorily . MESSRS. ED^SOBS: I Lave just read a. piti^gi?pht rlipped froui the ?u^' derson Ldelltgencer, calling attention to tbe remnrks of the Sumter Watc*% ?nan on an editorial of tho Columbia Pkcenix, conoorning "tho mission of tho Hov. W. T. Cfrpcrs iu Hie Nu?th, for tho purpose of solieitingJ.aid for rebuilding tho Washington Street Church" cf this city. Nowspa}>ers sometimes malus mis? takes, anil all that appears in their columns is not e.cartlu correct. Per? mit me to explain: At the request of tho trustees of tho burnt ('burch, T left Columbia to appeal to the Christian generosity of more fortu? nate communities, to ?id us in our effort to construct a place of worship for our lr useless. Impoverished con? gregation. I hoped to collect funds from our friends of Ballimore. When I met the prominent members of my denomination there, whose sympa? thies were .Southern. I learned that a legion of clerical beggars had been before me that the appeals from Vir? ginia, North Carolina. (Georgia, ami other Stati s ol' the South, had be.ee so frequent and urgent, and the aol lections had boon so numerous, that the good people who loved us hat nothing left to give the home de? mands culling for all that they coule then raise. The people genoralh were then doing what tiley could fe the success of the Southern Polio Fair. So I was disappointed in Pal tiuiore, although] must not fail to ac kuowledgc the receipt of ?"172 fron friends who had repeatedly, andsoim of them largely, contributed to tin relief i>t our sut?eriug soldiers am farmers. Introduced to a noble-hearted Ma rylnudor, residing at Newark, N. J. Kev. ll. L. Dashieli, pastor of St Paul's Methodist Episcopal Church a gentleman of liberal views, genet ons impulses and catholic spirit, lac ci j it ed his invitation to visit Newark, city enriched by Southern trade, am containing a strong conservative eh ment. I declined to preach to hi people until tho pastor's request wa seconded by tho leading members c the church, from whom 1 received cordial greeting and every assuranc of Christian love. Accompany i o Mr. Dashicll toa meeting of mini; h rs in the (.'entrai Church. [ wa recognized as a brother and welcome as a worthy associate. Called on t address them, after a most touchin prayer from a reverend doctor of th conference, 1 expressed my pleasui at meeting them ou t be broad pla form of Christian charity; hoped th time would soon come when tb churches would be one in the spir of the blessed Saviour, who, arnon his last words on earth, prayed tl Father, in behalf of his peopli "That they all may bc one-that til world may believe that thou hast soi me;" declared my conviction that tl only way to secure harmony ar promote fellowship was to take tl Bible for our guide, meet at the Cro of ??ur adorable Redeemer and gi our inspiration there. When preached to the congregation of ri Paul's, and when 1 addressed tl meeting of the ministers, I did n utter a singlo word of 'fawning" si nilicance, nor did I ask for a cent f my Church ia ( '? .tunrf/tit.

Tl? reoeut legislation of Congress is rapidly placing thc lives und for? tunes of the people of the Southern States at tho mercy of tlie district Courts of the United States. And yet, until the "test oath" required of all attorneys practicing in those courts is pronounced unconstitution? al, the lawyers of the South cannot practice before those tribunals. The existing law with reference to the Freedman's Bureau, the civil rights bill, tho confiscation Acts, the laws relating to internal revenue duties, ore likely to bring the Southern peo? ple before the district courts, while thc test oath dcuies them "the bene? fit of counsel." There isnot, we im? agine, in the Southern States a single lawyer of eminence and reputation who can take the "test oath." A few Northern lawyers muy have removed to the Southern States since thc fall of the Confederacy, but they are men, far the most part, of but little talents, and have not won the confi? dence of Southern clients. The "test oath." so far as the courts are concerned, "iutiiets pun? ishment" upon the members of the legal profession who have already been pardoned, because il denies them the privilege of (.'arning llic-ir bread. Tt denies, also, to our people tho advantages of learned counsel, when their hves, liberty and property are imperilled. This is a most deplorable state of things, ?md it is rendered still more alarming from the fact that a bill to remodel the judicial Act of 1789, and the whole system of the Federal courts, has already passed the Senate, and will, iu all probability, become a law. The system which is to be abo? lished has been in existence for nearly eighty years, and is, }>erhaps, as good as could be devised. The fact that it was not disturbed until the tornado of revolutionary madness and fury swept everything ancient and time-honored away, speaks vo? lumes in its favor. The bill now before Congress pro? poses to abolish the circuit courts entirely, throwing into the district courts al! the business heretofore done in the circuit courts, except the appeals from the district courts. It then nxakes a court of appeals in each circuit, composed of the district judges and the judge of the supreme court for that circuit, any three of whom may hold a court. And it j makes the decisions of this court of appeals final in all cases, unless more than "?10,0GMl is involved, or a con? struction is to be given to the Consti? tution, or a treaty, or a revenue law of the United States, or unless the ! court of appeals shall certify that the question involved is one of general importance. Some of the features of this bill ! bear a remarkable resemblance to a j late Act of the Legislature of Vir ginia, for the encouragement of the country lawyers, and the disintegra? tion and final extinction of a central supreme (State) court of appeals. Thc passage of this bill henceforth limits the jurisdiction of the judges of the Supreme Court of the United States to tho determination of ques? tions of law. Now thc justices of that court, when ou their circuits, try jury cases, civil as well as crimi? nal. Instead of having one national system of jurisprudence, if this bill becomes a law, we shall have ten, with different rules of practice, con? flicting decisions, and ten different reporters. For controversies involving less than SlIi.OtH), (and by far the greatest number of litigations involve less than that,) the Court of Appeals, composed of thc district judges, is the final arbiter. For all questions arising under the laws of the United Siates other than the revenue laws, those judges would have the power of final decision. At any time thus to divide up the jurisprudence of the country into different systems would be injurious, and would tend to in? crease sectionalism. Now, such a consequence will be inevitable. Indeed, the passage of such a bill will deprive a nation just emerging from the chaos of civil war, with innumerable novel und interest? ing questions of constitutional law to be decided, of every vestige of what will deserve the name of si supreme court.- -Richmond Times.

Relays of candidates for re-election will bc permitted to leave Washington as the exigencies of the canvass in their respective districts may require their presence, but a working force will be kept at Washington all the time to harass the President and reject his appointments. A bare quorum will be kept in either house, just euougb to keep the fires of faction, revolution and anarchy from dying out. The manufacture of public senti? ment is the main object of the radical conspirators at this time. They pro? pose deluging the land with printed matter sufficiently objectionable to merit the scrutiny of grand juries and prosecuting attorneys.

To exclude the entire Southern vote for President and vice-Pre? sident, upon the precedent estab? lished by Congress in the last elec? tion. III. If the Southern and Northern Democratic vote together should elect a President, to be prepared to resist that election by a new rebel lion. rV.
