Future—Troubles Ahead. [From the Auburn (N. Y. ) Advertiser & Union (Republican) April 25.] We had occftsion to BUte In our issue of yesterday, that any furtiit-r indemnity for the expenses of the war than we have al ready received, la out of the question. Security for the future lg the subject now uppermost; before Congress and the country. In respect to this the flrstqucstlon which arises Is, whether Con grett possesses any power whatever to extct from the late rebels any secw rUi for their future behavior. To consider this aright, we must first fettle in our minds the precise status- of the rebels as members of their respective States, and whether there exists any way of obtaining security irotn tbem as individuals. So lar as the paroled soldiers are concerned, it seems to be ad mitted that there is not. All other rebels miht be arrested and put under recogniz ance to keep the peace ft it were not lor tho Amnesty l'roclaination, which extends a pardon to some of them. A few of their leaders are now under arrest for suspected complicity in the assassination ot President Lincoln, aud for treason, and may yet be tried with the view to punishment. But in looking over the whole subject, neither the President nor Corvjress have found any feasible comtilutionnl way to exact any security from them that they wul not rebel ajuin when opportunity offers. So we dismiss that idea from consideration as being of no practical account. No security will be, because it cannot be, exacted of them as individuals. The next question which arises is whether any security can be obtained from them in their collective capacity aa members of their respective Suites. And here we must consider that these States are acknowledg ed aud proclaimed to be inside the Union under the Constitution, although some of their functions are suspended by the pecu liarity of their situation. They are within the Union yet in certain respects, although out of ther proper practiced relations to the Government. This being their condition, is there any way in which the Federal Gov ernment can exact any formal guaranty from these States that their inhabitants will never again rebel ? We suppose not, ex cept throwjh an amendment to the Constitution, and no such amendment would be likely to be rulijkd by three-fourths of the Slates. We dismiss that idea also as oneot no practical account. This brings us to the consideration of the question whether any security can be ex acted by indirection as a logical result of any practical line of policy toward them. It has been suggested that since there ap pears to be no way to exact security for future behavior by direct means, they shall be denied representation in Congress and iu National Conventions until they so aiueud their Statu Constitutions as to de clare the Union ot States to be perpetual. This idea seems to obtain favor with those who are without faith in those who have been rebels. Those who, like Judge Shellabarger, of Oli iu, continue to believe that the rebels have lost all right to participate in the Gov ernment, aud that "no good thiiigcancome outot Nazareth," maintain, another posi tion, namely : 1. That tho people of the Southern States shall be excluded from representation iu Congress and participation in political councils until alter the next Presidential election. I 2. To exclude the entire Southern vote for President and Vicc-Presi lent, upon the precedent established by Congress in the hist election. 3. If the Southern and Northern Dem ocratic vote together should elect a Presi dent, to be prepared to resist that election. Upon this the Democratic party of the country have already taken issue with the ap parent hope of making it snccesnful. The point we are discussing is indirect security for the good behavior of the rebels in tho future. The question is whether this line of policy, if It shall be followed, will bo likely, In view of the issue already made upon it. to secure it. W e have seen no reason for believing that it will. The key note to the probable solution may be dis covered in the testimony of Alexander II. Stephens, of Georgia. He said distinctly that the Southern people had complied with all the terms originally offered them, and all which Congress had the right to impose that they would not accept others as con ditions precedent to admission Into Con gress. It is reasonably certain that they consider themselves within the Union, and in practical relations to the Government which entitle them to representation in Congress and in political conventions. It is reasonably certain that they will send delegates to the next national nomin ating conventions, and that the Democratic nominating convention will admit them. It is reasonably certain, moreover, that they will choose Electors of President and Vice President, and ask to have them canvassed, and tli at if the electoral voles of Southern and Northern Democrats togetlter are enough to elect a President and Vice-President, and Uey are not allowed, there will be a political trouble of a very formidable character. With John son for President at that time in command of the military forces, it cannot be reason-, ably expected that the candidates elected will or can be kept out of olllee. We are free to say that we cannot con template such a contingency without the deepest concern; , When we apply to this subject the logic of our own observation and experience of political campaigns in by-gone years, we are obliged to conclude that such an experiment will result in trouble, without any corresponding benefits to the'party and country. Ve fervently hope that such a contingency may be avoided. [From a Boston Letter.] An Extraordinary Lawsuit in Boston—How the Dog Snapped at Shadow in the Water, and Lost his Meat. "'One of the largest and most Important lawsuits 'in the history of . Boston, or of New England, has just been virtually de cided. , The facts in the affair are so simple that I can convey an idea of it to your read ers in a paragraph. In the dark days of 1864, when the end of the warseeinedalong way off, when volunteering was at an end, and the draft Immlneut, the city of Boston was called upon for about six thousand men. A draft was arways abhorrent to the population here of all classes, and dismay reigned supreme. Money was given like water for substitutes, and the price of men ranged from $800 to $1,000 each. At this time one Chaa. Burrlll consulted with the municipal authorities as to the best means of filling the quota, by procuring repentaut rebels from the prison camps In the West, and by bringing to light credits not hereto--fore allowed. ' The Mayor signed a paper promising to give him $123 for each name obtained. With this paper in his pocket Mr. Burrlll hurried to Washington, pay ing' little' attention" to- the enlistment of rebels in the West, and devoted hiaenergtes to getting men who ."were already enrolled in the navy credited against the quota. A bill introduced into Congress for the pur pose was opposed by the Western members. Mr, Burrlll ''took measures.", (wbJcl he hints were expensive ones) to silence their opposition and secure their voto's. The bill Dassed. Ho posted back to Boston; and copied from the books of the receiving ship at the Charlestown Navy Yard the names of about six thousand men who had enlist ed there, giving this city as their residence. The list was passed to the credit of tho city on the booksof the provost olllcers. the quota was filled, and Boston was saved from draft. The re oic ntrs of the c Itv authorities over this preservation were interrupted by the presentation of Mr. BurriU's bill, $125 for each name which his exertions had ob tained, amounting to about three-quarters ot a million of money. The contract, giv en with the hone that he mrgnr enlist a hundred men. seemed to stand equally as good now that 0,000 naiuC3 l'd beeu obtain ed at a cost lor single recruits, but appal-1 ling in the aggregate. The Mayor, in oe spalr, wished thai by the sacrilice of his entire fortune, he could wipe away the debt under which he had placed the tax payers. , Propositions of compromise were made, and Mr. Burrill was allowed an amount which would have made him wealthy to relinquish his claim, lie de manded the whole sum. however, and would not abate a jot. Consultations with law yers followed. The city authorities took heart, aud determined to fight the case in the courts. An imposing array of counsel was engaged on both sides, Gen. B. F. But ler heading the plaintiffs force. The trial was begun last week. After Mr. BurriU's testimony was all In, the defendants asked the court to take the case from thejuryon questions of law to be decided by. a full bench. After some hours ot argument, this was done, and although of course the de cision was not final, Mr. BurriU's claim, for which five days ago he would mrttakc live hundred thousand dollars, is now worth nothing at all. The point made by the de fendant's counsel, of course, was that the Mayor had no authority to make such a contract, and there is every probability that It will be so decided. Had the amount claimed been a tenth of what it was, it would undoubtedly have been paid without resort to law; but Mr. BurriU's voracity was not content with a email sum, and no tax-naver is sorrv that he has now lost the jyhole. Queen Victoria Breaks the Law— The Will of Her Late Husband lllegally kept Private. [From the Philadelphia Press.] Queen Victoria, who was greatly in debt when she ascended the British throne in 1837, Is believed now tobeoneoftheriehest sovereigns in Europe; the King of Wur tcmburg and the Emperor of Austria prob ably have more real estate, but less cash in hand. The Duchess of Kent, who never spent more than a third of the $150,000 a year settled on her by Parliament, saved a large sum, which, by investments and rein vestment, made a handsome amount, and every shilling of this site bequeathed toiler daughter Victoria. The late Mr. Joseph Neeld, a millionaire who had more money than brains, was so loyal'' that passing over his blood relations, mostof whom were poor, he bequeathed $2.500.0H) in hard cash to Queen Victoria, whieli (to use the usual cant of court) "Her Majesty was most graciously pleased to accept." Prince Al bert, who was voted $150,000 a year by an obsequious Parliament, hail that income doubled by salaries from various sinecures from his wife, and, on his death, in Decem ber, 1801, bequeathed his littlo savings to her, being only $5,000,000. Ever since her ascension, nearly thirty years ago, Queen Victoria has made large savings out oi her income, the gross amount of which, from the parliamentary granl, called the "civil list," and from the net revenue of the Duchy of Lancaster, exceeds $2,000,000 a year. During the four years which have elapsed since her hus band's death, Victoria's expenditures were so small that she probably saved three fourths of her income, and lived upon only $500,000 a year. In addition to ail this cash, making a pretty little capital of $10, 000,000, Victoria also succeeded to a large tract of eligible building ground, at Ken sington, which Prince Albert bought "for a song," (who would presume to outbid the Queen's husband?) some years ago; up on part of which he built some handsome houses, the rent of which he fixed so high that none but the "upper ten" can lease them. However, that property is looking up, and "eligible building lots" thereon are frequently sold for about twenty times the amount paid for them by Prince Albert. In addition to the allowance of $2,000, 000 per annum to "Her Most Gracious Majesty," she has not one cent of rent to pay no insurance, no taxes, no repairs and alterations or additions which she sug- f rests or requires, are made out of the pub ic money. Her husband, who knew how to "turn an honest penny," converted 800 acres of Windsor Park into a model farm, for which he paid no rent, and actually refused to pay any . poor rates, until - the overseers of the parish seized some of his stock and fanning implements, and were about selling them under the authority of the law, when very graciously lie paid the amount claimed, with costs; and grumbled at the laws which, having no respect for persons, had compelled him, a pauper Ger man Prince, to contribute proper share to tho maintenance of the poor. On that model farm he reared a great number of stock, and in tho happy condition of sit ting rent free, competed, with no small success, at various cuttle shows, frequently gaining the best premiums in competition with breeders of stock who, less fortunate, had to pay rent for their land.. Queen Victoria succeeded to her hus band's $5,000,000, his model farm, and his building property at Kensington, by his "last will and testament," which left her solo executrix. Oddly enough, that will has never been proved at Doctor's Com mons; nor have . the documents been de posited, as the law exacts, in the usu il pub lic repository in London, where any will ran be read on payment of a shilling. This curious case is not without a parallel. George I, the first British monarch of Ger man Dirth, died in Germany in 1727, and was Biiceeeded by his eldest son, histori cally: known as George II. At the first council held by this royal personage, Dr. Wake, Archbishop -of Canterbury, pro duced tho lata Kiag's.wlll and delivered it to the new sovereign, expecting that, it would be opened there and then, and pub licly read. The King put the document in his pocket and walked out of the room without saying a word. It was his duty as trustee to have demanded at once the pub lication of the will, or at least a resigna tion of the document, but the tear'of giving oucnse to me living prevencea nis perform ing the trust delegated to him by the dead monarch. . Nono Of the, other courtiers cared to do what he, high in station as Primate Of England, had neglected to do. Whispers went abroad that the, King had burned bis father's will, and,. at all, events, its injunctions remained unfulfilled. - It was known, however, that George I had bequeathed $200,000 to one of his' mis tresses (Madame Schutenborg, whom he created Duchess ot Kendall), and a still larger legacy to his sister, the Queen' of Prussia. The well-knowri Earl of Chester field, who had married MeUwina de Hcho tenburg, only daughtef and heiress of the Duchess of Kendall, insisted on his mother-in-law's ritrhts. aud .cot. 40a00Oi from GeorjII .U.diseharge of the claim;, but ; .. .7 ;.., i . . .. tho legacy to tho Queen of Prussia was never paid, though her son, well known as Frederick the Great, made frequent and rough demands for a settlement, which I. is royal uncle never mnde. Horace Wal pole has stated the particulars in full. That Queen Victoria, whose flat gives comple tion to all laws framed and passed by the British Parliament, should thus personally violate the common law ot succession, is much wondered at in England. Butwhat Is everyone's business U nobody's busi ness;" so that it is not likely that she will be called on t register,, deposit and prove her defunct husband's last will and testament. [From the Port Wayne Democrat, April 30.] Suicide in High Life—Self Destruction one of our Wealthiest Citizens. Another soiil has been ushered into eter nity, and passed '"to that bourne from whence no traveler returneth." Yesterday morning, between the hours of four and five o'clock, William G.Ewlng, Jr., adopted son of the late William G. Ewing, commit ted suicide by shooting himself with a re volver through the head. Yesterday, all manner of rumors were current on the etreets, none of which were correct. It appears the deed was premeditated, as the deceased had been heard to say that when he got helpless he would not remain long on earth, that he would end all his troubles by self destruction. He has been ill for months past, and most all winter confined to his bed. His disease was slow consumption and his sufferings were great; he was anticipating the grim monster at any hour. On Friday and Saturday last, he was busily engaged in destroying let ters, concerning his domestic difficulties, as ho was divorced from his wife, the eldest daughter of Colonel G. W. Ew ing, senior, several years ago. One child, a lovely little girl, was the fruit of this union. After the separation, Mr. E. took the child, which was boarding with him ntthe residenceof Mrs. Esther Ewing, cor. Ewing and Berry streets. On Satur day evening, he sent for his attorney, Judge Morris, to draw up hia will, In which he left the bulk of his wealth to his daughter. Yesterday morning, at the honr mentioned above, Mrs. K. had left his room, when he arose from his bed and walked to a bureau In the room, upon which was a mirror, opening one of the drawers, he took a re volver, and standing in frontof the mirror, deliberately placed the muzzle of the weapon about an inch above and in range of his ear. and pulled tho trigger, and he fell to the lloor a corpse. Instantly Mrs. E. rushed into the room, but discovered that life was extinct. She immediately notified the authorities, the Coroner was sent for, who had a jury empanneled, the verdict of which was In accordance with the tacts we have given. The deceased, we believe, was born in this county, and had resided here very near all his life time, and was well known, not only here but abroad, as he was formerly connected with the busi ness house of G. W. & W. G. Ewing, the well known Indiana capitalists. He was about thirty-six years of age, and leaves a large circle of friends and acquaintances, who will mourn the rash act. Logical Parallels. The Bellefonte Press (shoddy) lately made a comparison between P. Gray Meek, of the Wuctma and a negro, as follows : "The same sun pours Its warm rays upon tho humble negro as It does upon Heek .. - 11. !..!.! n, .l .; Lite same ciuuua biiiiiwu lug kumlil; laiua over the garden of the negro as over that of Meek; the same springs yield lortne negro the sparkling beverage of God's creation as they do for Meek ; the same air God gave Meek to breathe, he also gave the black man ; the same grain that grows for Meek, God also directed to grow for the African ; all, everything, has the Creator, the Father of Meek as well as of the African, placed in this world for the enjoyment of Meek as well as of the African. Where, theu, U the distinction?" Meek thereupon "went in" and used up the Press man in the following happy and loeical stvhs : "What a stunner! The same sun pours its warm rays upon the lazy Ass that does up' ou the editor of the l'ress ; the same clouds sprinkle the gentle rain over the back of the Ass that does over tne nead ot uiitctunson ; tho little springs yield for the Ass the sparkling beverage of God's creation that they do for Hutchinson ; the same air God gave Hutchinson to breathe he also gave the Ass ; the grain that grows for Hutchin son God also directs to grow for the Ass ; the same sleep that secures rest for Hutch inson secures it also for the Ass. Where, then, is the distinction? Hutchluson eats, drinks, sleeps, breathes, walks, runs, gets tired, rests, and so does the Ass. He has ears, eves, nose, mouth, body, legs and leel; so has the Ass. He is stupid, greedy, long eared and homely ; so is the Ass. Where, then, is the difference ? Only in tills : he Is an Ass that gets round ou two legs, while a majority of that breed get round on four. We leave it to our readers to judge if the logic in one case is not as conclusive as In the other." t A Matrimonial Restorative. [Hartford (Wis.) Cor. Milwaukee Sentinel.] : A singular case ot matrimonial lits, a newly discovered disease, has lately come before the attention of the good people of this village. It was remarkable, not so much by its manifestations, as by the man ner in which a speedy cure was brought about. . ....... A young man of this place, not yet out of his teens, had been paying his attentions to a young lady some three years his junior, and has for some time been pressing upon the parents of both parties the necessity ot an early marriage, but being refused this very reasonable request, he was compelled to resort to strategy of the most ingenious descripition. He was seized, with fainting fits, and a council of the village physicians being call ed, the most powerful remedies known to the profession were tried, but to no pur pose. His case was given up as hopeless by his friends, and being asked if he was fully prepared' for the dreadful solemnity of death, replied that he was, with the excep tion of one thing. If he could but marry his Mary Ann he would die happily. His dying request' certainly could not be re fused, and Mary Ann having no objections, the minister was sent lor, and the solemn ordinance of marriager was performed be fore the .most solemn messenger of death Should step in to snatoh away the gasping bridegroom from time to the rejjious of feternity. v'"n ..- ;The end of this should-have-been solemn occurrence has transpired in thisconclusion.

The great issue before the people is, whether all the powers of Government , shall be concentrated in the hands of the . General Government the States being re- ., ducedto the condition of counties and a ' consolidated despotism be thereby estab- , lished ; or, whether those rights of local sell-government which our fathers enjoy ed and which we iuhcrited from them, and . without which there can be no real liberty, no wise government, no public economy, t no light taxation, shall be preserved. , A powerful faction, represented by a ma jority in Congress, have conspired to over throw the free and beneficent institutions , of our fathers, and to substitute therefor an . Oligarchy of privileged classes, crushing , the mass of the people and all individual j liberty, under the weight of a despotic and , unrestricted General Government. To ef- . feet this object, they, in plain violation of , the Constitution, exclude eleven States , from representation in Congress, and insist , upon conferring upon negroes the right to vote not out of regard to the negro, but because they expect to be able, with their money, to control his vote, and , thereby perpetuate their party ascendency. Let , every man who 13 opposed to the schemes of the conspirators, who cherishes the institutions founded by our fathers,' who appreciates the necessity and benefits of local self-government, who Is opposed to ' seeing the great State of Ohio shorn of her dignity and reduced to the dependent con dition of a county, or who is opposed to Negro Suffrage, jolti with the Democracy ' in rescuing our country from the grasp of the Malignants.
