Secretary Stanton.

the Radicals tot cut loose from the President,

President, ' he undoubtedly' Is impressed
Kith the ' Idea,' that the Democratic and
G'jnservative elements of the couutry are
about to be Intrusted with the administra

be popular, an djv as,, therefore,' prompt to

to1 account. ' By his administration of the

liciously wronged.' : ' ,' '; ;' : ',' '

The Cabinet a Unit.
The Washington special of the New York
Tim u-ys there is not word of truth In
th report, that there Is between Secretary
Stanton and the President any disagree
m,ent; but that there is the highest author
ity for stating that Mr.; Stanton fully ap
proves the President's action, and that it Is
also true that the entire Cabinet are a unit
on. tlie gamq question and the President Is
lully sustained by his Cabinet.
- We have been assured within the last
twenty-four hours, by a gentleman who
professed, to speak understanding, that
the only point wherein Mr. Stanton here
tofore disagreed with the' President, was
- that the President did not present the Issue
so ruggedly as to coin pel the Radicals to
break with him before now.' If our in
formant Is not In error, Mr. Stanton will
regard it as a happy eveut when the Radi
cals shall out loose from the President. 1
The Propriety of Which the People
Will Not Discover.
Inasmuch as President Johnson has not
proposed an abandonment of the Constitu
tion of the United States; inasmuch as he
ii doing what he conceives to be essential
tv the restoration of enduring peace and
permanent Union; inasmuch as he has tak
- eh occasion to denounce by name the ring
leaders in a movement to overthrow the
Constitution, and to render abortive the
work done by our armies; the people will

Republican Meeting at Toledo.
The Republicans held a meeting at Toledo
on the night ot the 26th. The object of the
meeting appears to baye been to express
confidence alike in Congress and the Presi
dent. The-Revolutionary course of the
Radicals waa ' not even incidentally cen
sured ; but the hope Was expressed that the
President would do nothing to forfeit his
claim to be considered a member In good
standing In the so-called "Union party."
Substantially, the meeting rt damned the
President with faint praise." And as such,
the President will, most assuredly, properly
appreciate Its proceedings. ,"" ;.
The Rebels and "Copperheads"
;One""of the principal objections urged by
the Radicals, to the. President's veto and
speech are that they make the Rebels and
Copperheads rejoice; and because they' do
jthU they regard it as eminently proper that
"the loyal" people should condemn them.
That Is as muck, as to say : If President
Johnson's policy shall make the Rebels and
Copperheads sincerely devoted to the Un
ion, that will furnish a cause for "the loyal"
people to withdraw from the Union. That
is the logical conclusion to such stupid talk.

The Wheels of Legislation Clogged
to Defeat the President's
Plan of Restoration—No Use
to Pass Bills to be Vetoed—Continuons
Session and Withholding
Proposed—The Cabinet a Unit,
Another week of the session begins, but
with , as little prospect of the dispatch of
business as heretofore. Were this tiie short
esslon it would be within a week of its
termination, and, as yet, the wheels of leg
islation are clogged by the efforts of Con-,
gress to defeat the President's plan of re
construction. , The war between the Presi
dent and Congress has begun in earnest,
but the Republican majority could not, at
the caucus of Friday night, agree upon any
plan of hostilities. They took measures,
nowever, to pave their elections.
Some members now sav that it Is useless
to oass bills for the President to veto, and
that, as their own measures cannot be en
acted, they care for no other. Others pro
uosc a continuous session till theexpiratlon
of the 39th Congress, to prevent the Presi
dent, from, appointing Ms friends to office
during the recess or the Be late.
; To withhold the appropriation bills is an
other mode of annoying the Executive, but
the substantial interests or the country
would revolt at that, and few members who
resorted to It could beelected. There remains
i one mode, and only one whereby, if the
.Republican majority can recover and keep
the two-thirds power ot the Senate, the
I'resiaent can De put aown to-wrc: ira
peach ment. The first thing to be done to
ward this is to obtain a two-thirds majority
of the Senate. , bevernl modes have been
suggested one is to create new States in
sufficient numoer lor the purpose.
, It was reasserted to-day In the Senate
that the Cabinet of President Johnson Is i
unit upon all the. measures of the Presl
'dent since his accession. This includes the
:veto. Mr. Seward Indorses every word of
the President's late speech, ana we nave
heard, as yet, no remonstrance against it
from others of the Cabinet. His believed
ithatthe Cabinet will adhere to Mr.John-
json, though Mr. Johnson may not adhere to
tnem. . " .

in the Senate to-day against the scheme
shutting out Southern Representatives. '

Amendments to the Constitution.
' We are not of those who believe that the
Constitution is suet a weak Instrument that
it requires seinl-occasionally to be propped
up with amendments which it is here late
ly so lasmonaoie ior mem oers oi congress
to Dropose. It was framed with most jeal
ous care by men as a general thing far
wiser than any who have come after them.
Tbey were master workmen, ana tneirwork
does not neeq tne numerous repairs propos.
cd. A ereat number of our present Con
gressmen imagine they are tinkers, and are
anxious to try their hands at tinkering up
the Constitution that so well suited our
fathers. Tliev are tinkers, and nothing else,
and therefore should not be permitted to
ply their vocation upon so sacred a pieceof
work as tnat nanueu aown to us oy lis great
orieinal framers, and pronounced by the
wisest of men as near perlect as it was pos
sible to create. If the Constitution is to be
amended, let the entire nation have a hand in
it, as the entire nation will be effected, by
taking therefrom or adding thereto.
Let members of Congress turn their at
tention to something else than amendments
to the Constitution. They can find plenty
to do that will be of far more benefit to the
country while theirproposltionsonly tend
to distract and keep alive the ill fueling be
tween different sections that now prevails so
extensively. '
The Dayton Journal tells us u that there
is no practical signilicnnce In the presenta
tion ot so many amendments. There never
was. a legislative body In this country, State
or National, that was not afflicted by scores
of bills and resolutions which never amount
ed to anything more than the gratification
their authors had in presenting' them."
It fthlo la Clio coac would It hoc be bntfcer
to attach some odium to a proposition to
amend the Constitution r 1 bis might cor
rect the evil and render it but a poor gratirt
cation to the proposer of an amendment. If
our Legislators have nothing better to do
than to present amendments, for the pur
pose of self-gratification, they had better
resign, and we will endeavor to send men
to Congress who have the true interests of
t be Nation at Heart, paramount to every-
thing else. -1 '

The Radical Demonstration in
The Radical demonstration in this city,
last night, against the President, was siu-
f;ular in character, and scarcely respectable
a numbers. One-half of the audience rere
Democrats,' drawn out by curiosity, and
the greater part of the other half white
black and gray were drawn out by curiosi
abjo. , It was such a crowd as will as
semble at any time in Chicago when the
prospective entertainment promises to be
either funny or exciting.
The speeches were tame, flat and unprof
itable. It the reader wants proof in this
respect, let nlra read tbe very accurate re-,
portot them In another part of this paper;
or If he wishes to Induce somnolence, let
him read this report. They were trashy in
tbe extreme. We have never inflicted
worse rubbish upon our readers, unless,
perchance, some of these same gentlemen
have before orated through our columns. .,,
The president is all right in Chicago.
Bis assailants have done their worst, and it
will have no mora eflect upon public opin
ion, here or elsewhere, than a child's breath

memorializing Congress to impose a duty
on foreign stones. The convention agreed
upon a memorial asking Congress to impose
a specilio duty on imported grindstonee,
which should be ample to protect 'the in
terests of the home manufacturers. Two
delegates were sent to Washington to get
the matter properly before the Ways and
Means committee.
An Assault.
List r evening between nine and ten
o'clock, as Mr. T. Lough was passing'down
the north side of West Gay street toward
his residence, a man came out of the alley
east of the Crisis of!ke,'with a cane or club
in his hand, with which he struck the pave
ment several times, making quite aloud
noise. Mr Lough suspecting something
wrong, was on his guard, and spoke to tbe
man as he passed him, remarking that It
was a rainy evening, to which the other re
plied, ."Yes," and Immediately . struck Mr.
Lough A severe blow with his 6tlck.
Mr. Lough, upon being struck, ran a few
paces ahead, calling loudly for help. Sev-
eral gentlemen ran out ot the Crisis office,
and took charge of Mr. Lough's assailant.
lie was handed over to a police officer and
placed in safe quarters. Mr. Lough, we
learn, was not seriously hurt.
The Opening Concert.
at the Opera House by the great pianist,
James M; Wehli and his troupe, takes place
this evening. Of the merits of Mr. Wehli's
performances our musical friends are well
advised, both;, from enjoying, them on
former occasions, and from the reputation
he has gained as an artist. Our exchanges
award also high praise to M'lle Gebele and
Mr. Campbell, members of the troupe,
Mr. C. will be recollected as the magnifi
cent baritone of the Castle-Cam pbcll Eng
lish Opera Troupe. His voice is consider-.
ed tbe finest American voice of tbe kind.
It is, remarks a critic, a trifle too heavy for
baritone and scarcely heavy enough tor a
basso. Hence, some of the musical con
nolseurs style It a baritone basso.
Tickets for the Wehll concerts can be had
at Seltzer's music store. " "', . .' . "
Police Court.
There was but ono Individual before the
Mayor yesterday morning for a criminal
offense, and that one Is anon-resident of the
city, who, for drunkenness and rowdyism
on 'th e streets, was fined 13 and , costs and
committed. - - -
We congratulate our citizens upon the
remarkable diminution of business in our
Police Court. -'-It augurs well for the mor
als of our city. It Is owing, evidently, in
great measure, to the return of peace, tbe
disbandment of the mili tary organizations
in our Immediate neighborhood, and, the
substitution of civil rule and order for mil
itary despotism and consequent disorders
Most of the offenders that have, for a long
time past, beed called before our Police
Court, have been strangers ' or temporary
sojourners In or about the" city. With the
vigorous administration of municipal jus
tice by Mayor Bull, we anticipate that our
goodly eity will soon become more orderly
and law-abiding than eyey in the "piping
time of .peace" before the war. w ;...
The Woodstock Robbery and Recovery
of the Property.
The Cincinnati Enquirer, of yesterday
morning, gives the following account of
the' ferreting out of the Woodstock rob
bery, of which mention has been made In
this paper: . . ' . ; ;
On Friday night the iGth ult.J, between
twelve and one o'clock, the house of Mr. B.
Kimball, near Woodstock, Champaign
county, was entered by burglars, and over
$13,000 In Government bonds stolen there
from. Mr. Kimball was awakened by be
ing struck on the httKTby one of the rnf
fjitiis. Ho. called loudly for, help, and his
grtiiidsonV Ws U, Kimball, in m adjoining
room, cniiie to his relief, or ho would doubt
less hav 1ecn mnrderedr'The robbera
t nlned admission bv borinir a hole throtieh
the door," f as to ue ablo to elide the bolt
with which 'It was fastened. - "
! )y this it would seem to be inferred that
soma bold jobbers bat! entered the house
of Mr. Kimball anil robbed hlhl, and such
bcinethe linnrcstiion of that gentleman, he
communicated his less to the Chief of police
ot uuscity, . ' i v , :
. Our Chief, Mr. J. L. Kuffln, Immediately
detailed Detective Frank Mitchell to ferret
out the case, and consequently on Friday
last that otlloial left for Woodstock on his
errand. On arriving at that little town he
reported Ulrnselt 8 cattle-drover, and
While rambling about the' place, he fell in
with W. It. Kimball, the grandson of Bel a
Kimball, the gentleman named above, who
was robbed. Detective Mitchell so man
aged the matter that he ate dinner with
young Kimball on the following day (last
Saturday). ; During the dinner-hour the
officer gathered from young Kimball that
lie (Kimball) Had been to uoiutnbus, tie
having been a soldier, to draw his bounty
money. From this conversation officer
Mitchell took the hint, and, in his capacity
of cattle drover, bade good-by to young
Kimball, ana took his departure.
His dcuarture was for Columbus, where
he immediately proceeded ; to Inquire of
each of the claim agents in that city it any
claim for bounty had been paid to W. It.
Kimball, and, as he anticipated, he ascer
tained that nothing had been paid to such
a man. The officer also found that Kimball,
while, in Columbus, had purchased goods of
diflerent kinds, amounting to $150, and that
he WHSvery liberal in his expenditures.
Mr. Mitchell then appeared in Woodstock
satisfied that Kimball, having expended
$150, paying $155 in one instance whep he
thought he was paying but $150, thus ex
hibiting liis carelessness, when he repre
sented himself in his true character, and
requested his assistance to ferret out the
robber ot his grandfather. The officer and
his victim then became very communica
tive; he told him that he had taken the
bonus, and showed him where he had them
hid. He immediately took possession of
: Kimball then told Mitchell that he had
used the burglars' dodge, he boring around
the lock of the door lor a feint, by which
means the bonds were stolen, and his grand
father was deceived in.tlieuianiier ot their
being taken. ' H ' '
Detective Mitchell took his prisoner to
Urbana. the county seat of Champaign, in
which Woodstock is located, and pr sented
him la Court, where he' was held in $5,000
for his appearance before the Courc of
Common Pleas of that county. The stolen
bonus were delivered to tneir rigntiui own-
tr. Olllcer Mitchell returned to this city
yesterday afternoon. ,
Something of a Runaway.
A not very disastrous runaway took placo
yesterday forenoon on High street, near our
office. A gentleman was driving a horse
and buggy up the street, witb a boy on the
seat by his side. To the boy he had given
the lead of a horse he had just purchased.
The new horse, with a sort of mulish stub
bornness, declined to follow in the rear of
the buggy, probably preferring a' situation
in front as the post of honor. Be this as it
may, the boy held on to the animal with an
obstinacy quite equal to his. The conse
quence was, that he was pulled and whirl
ed about In his seat, and finally, the gentle
man who was driving, was pushed de.
umped out of the buggy. The horse In the
harness, finding the reins loose and himself
without a governor, took it into his head
to do what, It Is said, he had often done be
fore, namely, to run away. The boy, still
holding fast to the horse in the rear, was at
lenth drawn into the hinder part of the
buggy, and finally out of it into the mud,
somewhat bruised, but not seriously injur
ed. Tbe runaway horse continued bis wild
career toward the river, but at last brought
up against a yard fence, where he came to
a full stop. " The buggy was slightly dam
aged. The runaway horse was not injured,
liather better luck than be deserved.
