The President’s Message.
[Contivued from Third
• ‘ emancipation and arming the blacks. These
measures have been much discussed in for
dgn countries, and, contemporary with such
the tone of public sentiment there,
is much improved. At home tbe same meas
ures have been fully discussed, supported,
criticised, and denounced; and tbe
elections following arc higldy encouraging to
those whose special duty it is to bcarthe
country through this great trial
Thus wc hare the reckoning. The crisis
TThlch threatened to divide the friends of the
Union is past Looking now to the present
mid future, and with reference to a res amp-!
tion of the national.authority within the
States wherein that authority nna been bus
pended, I have,thought lit to* issue a procla
mation, a copy of which Is herewith trans
mitted. On examination of this proclama
tion, It will appear as is believed, amply jus
tified by the Constitution. True, the form of
an oath is given, but no man is
- coerced to take it A man is
only promised a pardon in case he
■voluntarily takes tbe oath, the Constitution
authorizes the Executive to grant on such
terms as arc fully established by judicial and
other authority. It also provides, that if in
many of the States named a real government
shall be in the mode prescribed set up, such
government shall be recognized and guaran
teed by the United States, and that under it
the State shall be protected against invasion
and domestic violence. The constitutional
obligation of the United States to guarantee
to every State in tbe Union a Bcpublican
form of Government, and to protect the State
In the cases stated, is explicit and full; but
why tender tbe benefits of thin provision
only to a State government set up in this
■ particular way? This section of the Consti
tution contemplates wherein the dement
within.a State favorable to a Bcpublican
government in the Union may be too feeble
for an opposite and hostile dement in the
exterior, and even within the State.
Such are precisely the cases with which we
arc now dealing.
An attempt to guarantee and protect a re
vised StctcGovcmment constructed In whole
or a preponderating part from the very de
ment against whose hostility and violence it
Is to be protected, is simply absurd.
There must bo a test by which to separate
opposing dements so as to build only from
the sound, and that test is a sulfldently lib
eral one which accepts as sound whoever will
make a sworn recantation oi Ms former un
aonndness.
But if it be proper to propose as a test of
Admission to tiic political body, an oath of
allegiance to the Constitution of the United
States and the Union under it, why net also
. to the laws and proclamation in regard to
•lavexy ? These laws and prodamations were
■devised and put forth for the purpose of
aiding the suppression of the rebellion and to
give them their fullest effect there bad to be
_ u pledge for their maintain once. 1a my
* judgment they have ’aided, and will farther
aid the cause for which they were enlisted.
To give up this principle would be not only
to relinquish a lever of power, but would
also be a cruel and astonishing breach of
faith.
I may udd at this point that while I remain
in my present position I shall not attempt to
retractor modify the Emancipation Procla
mation, nor *hall /return to *lat*Ty any person
toko is free by the tennsofthe Proclamation, nor
by any act of Congress.
For these, and other reasons, it is thought
best that the support of these provisions
shall be included in the oath, and it is be
lieved that tbe Executive may lawfully Hntm
it in return for pardon and restoration of
forfeited rights, which be has clear constitu
tional power to withhold altogether,
or grant upon the terms which be
shall deem -wisest for the public interest
It should be observed, also, that this part
of the oath is subject to the. modifying and
Abrogating power of legislation and-supreme
judicial decision. The proposed acquiescence
of the National Exceptive in any honorable
temporary State arrangement for the freed
people, is made with the view of possibly
modifying the confusion and desolation which
must at first attend all desses by a total- rev
olution of labor throughout the whole States.
It is hoped that the already deeply afflicted
people in these States may be somewhat
v more ready to give up the cause of their afflic
* tion, and to tins extent this vital matter is
left to themselves. While no power of the
National Executive to prevent an abase is
abridged by the proposition, the suggestion
in the proclamation as to managing
the political framework of the States, or
what is called redbnstmction, te made in tbe
hope that it may do good without the danger
of harm, and will save labor and avoid great
confusion.
Botany proclamation upon this question
is beset with the conflicting views that the
step might be delayed too long, or taken too
soon, some elements for resumption seem
ready for action, but remain inactive appar
ently, for want of a rallying point or a plan
of action. TVlv shall 1 adopt the plan of A
rather than of B; and if A and B should
agree, how can they know that the general
Cfovcnuncnt here will respect their plan? By
the proclamation, plants presented which
may be accepted by them as a ralh ing point,
and which they are assured in advance will
not be rejected here. This may bring them
to act sooner than they otherwise would.
The objection to a premature presentation
of a plan by the national executive, consists
in the danger of committal, or what conld be
more safely left to further developments.
Care has been taken to so shape the docu
ment as to avoid embarrassment from this
source.
In saying that on certain terms certain
classes will be pardoned, with their righta
restored, it is not said other classes on other
terms will ever be included.
In saying a reconstruction ■will be accepted
If presented in a specified tray, it is not said
it 'will never be accepted in any other way.
The movements in State action for emanci-’
mtion in ecrcral of the States not included
in the Emancipation Proclamation, arc mat
ters of profound gratification; and while I
do not repeat in detail what X bare heretofore
so earnestly urged on this subject, my gen
eral views and feelings remain unchanged,
and I trust that Congress will omit
no lair opportunity of aiding these im
portant etciie to the great consummation.
In the midst of other cases, however im
portant, we must not lose sight of the fact
that the war power is stSU our tnaiu reliance. To
that power alone can we look yet, for time to
give confidence to the people in the contested
regions that the insurgents power will not
again over run them. Until that confidence
shall be established, little can be done any
where for what is called “Reconstruction.”
■ Hence, our eftitf care must still be directed to
our army and navy, who have thus
Ikr .borne themselves so nobly
and wcU. And it may be esteemed
fortunate that in giving the greatest effi
ciency to their indispensable arms, we do also
honorably encourage the gallant men, from
commander to sentinel, who compose them,
and to whom, more than all others, the world
stands indebted for the homo of freedom dis
enthralled, regenerated, enlarged and perpet
uated. '

very important national document That's enter*

Betdbxikg to Htb Regiment.—Chaplain
Rogers of the 15th DUnois volunteers will leave
Chicago for his regiment on Wednesday next, and
.will be glad to take letters orpackagesfromfriends
to the men in his regiment. Fruits, vegetables,
butter and reading matter, as well as letters, may
be sent to tbe room's of the Sanitary Commission,
on or before tbe 15th. Tbe boys greatly need
these articles, and will receive them thankfully?
Papers in the northern part of foU State please
copy.
Metbopolitak Hall.—Quite a pleasing
episode occurred last evening at the Opera House
of Arlington & Donnlkcr. ‘ After the termination
of the first part of the performance, Alderman
Bblmp stepped on the 'stage, and In a few well
timed remarks, presented, on behalf of several
friends, a gold watch, valued at $l5O, to Wm. Ar
lington, the “funny” man of the troupe. Mr. Ar
lington replied in a modest little speech, thanking
the Alderman and his friends for the valuable gin.
. Soldiebs* Remittances.-—Several com
plaints have recently been tnado that fands entrust
ed by soldiers in the army to private parties for
delivery to friends at home have failed to reach
their intended destination. The surest mode of
rcmlttcnce, the one always adopted by business
men, la to remit by express where banking la cili
ties do not exist. Soldiers should choose tho ex
press, unless the honesty of-the messenger is well
established, and the position in life such as to ob
viate the temptation to steal. •
A Double Buvglabt.—On Thursday night
last the barber shop of a man named Pecklers, No:
11 West Randolph street, was burglariously enter
ed, and a number of his razors, scissors,
taken away. On Tuesday night last It was broken
Into a second time, and the few remaining articles
taken, including in all a watch, banjo, razors,
scissors, boxes oT soap, bat* oQ, etc. In some way,
known only to themselves, the detectives got on
track of tho burglar, and arlcr dark last evening
placed him in the lock-up.. Since his arrest, it has
been ascertained that ho it was that entered the
shop on both occasions. Frank Curran, clfae John
the double-burglar, will be examined to-day. -
Bailwat Collision.—A collision occurred
last Monday night on the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne
and Chicago Railroad, between tho Cincinnati ex
press train, which left the depot in this city on
Monday night, and an Incoming freight train.
Tbe collision occurred between Tolleston and
Clark stations, about twenty-five miles from Chi
cago, and resulted in the breaking of the leg of a
brakesman on the Cincinnati tram, the smashing
of two coaches, and a slight injury to engines Nos.
161 and ISO. The passenger train was running at
a slow rate of speed—about five or six miles an
hour—and hence theelight damage sustained.
Lost His Cap.—Yesterday afternoon a
country genius from the neighborhood of Elgin,
came into the detective police station, and with
tears in his eyes told a sad story about how he had
been victimized.out of a “bran" new for cap, by
one of the 44 wandering Arabs’’ of the metropolis.
From his story, it appears thatho had been attend
ing Coart, and believing in the honesty of every
body, laid his cap down on the seat beside. While
ettcntrvcly engaged in listening to the eloquence
of the different lawyers, some ooy came in and
picked up the countryman’s cap. and left bis own
(a poorer one) in exchange. Tbe counterman's
opinion of the honesty of the vonth of Chicago is
considerably below par, and ho leaves lor Ms prai
rie home a sadder if not a wiser man,
Laboekt.—Hattie Childs, a well known
“stool pigeon,” was brought before the Police
Court yesterday afternoon charged with the lar
ceny ofa gold watch and other jejvelry from Fred
erick T. NoelL It was stated that the defendant
had been living with tbe complainant as his wife
for some time past, and on Tuesday, the Ist Inst.,
die made up her mind to terminate the Hason.
To accomplish her purpose more effectually, she
went to Joliet, at the sameltime splritingaway the
complainant’s jewelry, which she had induced him
to leave in her possession, stating that she was
j;olng over on the West side for a day or two. In
stead, however, of honoring the West division
with her presence she went to Joliet, to sec her
husband, a notorious thief who is incarcerated In
the State penitentiary. She was committed for
trial. In default of bail in S6OO.
Fatad Accident. —Yesterday forenoon, ns
the eastward boimd passenger tram on the Galena
and Chicago Union Railroad crossed-a road near
Genera, it ran over an unknown man who was ly
ing on the track, cutting the body to pieces. The
train was running on a down grade at the time,
andthefirstthe engineer safer of the poor fellow
was when his head, entirely severed from the
body and cut open, tumbled from the trick. The
brakes were instantly applied,' but not until the
whole train had passed over conld it be stopped.
The body was literally bashed by the wheels, and
was unrecognized, either at the time or at the sub*
sequent inquest held at Geneva, The jury acquit
ted the engineer from all blame in the matter, as
the evidence showed the deceased to have been
lying in such a position that he conld not have
been seen from the engine until too late.
Alleged Fokgert.—A trial was convened
on Tuesday last before Justice Moore, which is
of rather greater magnitude tba« usually falls
within the domain of action of a Justice of the
Peace. The alleged frets are substantially these;
Captain John A. Hynes received authority last
year from Adjutant General Fuller to recruit a
company of soldiers in or near Chicago. He was
successful, bnt at a cost of $425, which money was
not refunded him by the Government Be went
down to theatmjvand ten months ago fcll in with
two men, named W. U. and F. B. Mar
shall, who after hearing his account of non-reim
bnrsement, informed him that they were abont to
proceed to Springfield, in this State, to collect a
similar account, and would be happy to serve h>m,
He consented and they departed on their mission,
bnt were unsuccessful. A short time afterward
Captain Hynes returned to Chicago and was paid
by Captain Christopher. He has lately discovered
that Messrs. Ransted and Marshall made another
application to the Department at Springfield and
were paid, signing the name of CaptainHynes to
the receipt, and omitted to send h**n the money or
apprise him of the fret of payment. They were
arrested on a change of forgery. The examination
will be resumed this morning.
Belling a Guild. —A girl of not more than
fourteen years of age was observed to be traveling
30 and fro in the streets of the West Division, on
Tuesday last, apparently in a most perplexing
state of uncertainty as to what she should do. She
would pause in front of a house two or three times,
looking wonderingly at the door as if trying to
read on the plate the character of the people with
in. She would then pass to another, and so thro'
the same role, ad libitum. Being very respectably
dressed, her behavior attracted much attention.
She at last accosted a lady who was coming out at
the door as the inquire, reached it, and after a
great deal of drcnrnJoration, though without much
apparent embarrassment. Inquired if she were
willing to adopt a child. The questioned one re
plied “No.” The damsel then betook herself to
another locution, not far west of Halstead street
or south of Randolph, where she effected the trans
fer, riving about 5200 In monev and a quantity of
clothing as a douceur to the individual who reliev
ed her of her unwelcome charge. The child is a
male of about four weeks old. The mother inti
mated that she had been staying for some time at
the Eagle hotel, and wonldnowrotnrn to her home
in lowa,
Coeoneb op Cook Countt—Republican
Noukatiok.—A meeting of the Cook county Re
publican Union Central Committee, was held yes
terday, at the roomc of tbe Secretary—S. A. Irwin
—at which the following preamble and resolutions
were unanimously adopted:
| A vacancy in the office of Coroner of
said county has occurred by the resignation of Dr.
Ernst Schmidt, and an election has been ordered
by the Governor to be held on the 23d day of De
cember next to fill such vacancy, and
liTis/eo*, The trouble and expense of a conven
tion to nominate a candidate to be supported at
said election to fill said vacancy ought to be
avoided if it can be d<pe consistently with the best
interests of tbe party, and
Whereat. Tbe Union members of tbo Board of-
Supervisors, now in session, wIIL In the opinion
of this committee, fairly express the wishes of the
party; therefore
That the Republican Union members
of the Board of Supervisors be requested to meet
at tbe Supervisors* room,' on tbo 10th day of De
cember, A. D. 1868, utfonro’clock in the afternoon,
for the purpose of nominating a candidate, to fill
the vacancy in the office of Coroner, •ccagioned by
tbe resignation of Dr. Ernst Schmidt, and all per
sons desirous of being candidates of the Union
party are requested to meet the Supervisors at that
time and place.
Junk Dealers in Trouble.—On Friday
last, complaint was lodged at the Second Precinct
Police Station, by the proprietor of a soda water
manufactory on West Randolph street, that some
£6O worth of faucets, &c., had been stolen from
him. The theft was traced to three little boys,
who, after some coaxing, confessed hating .taken
the properly, and pointed ont three Jnnk stores at
which it bad been sold, the large stun of abont $4
being realized by the transaction. The first of
those visited owned to the fact of purchase at
once, bat the other two—named Gamey and a«t»-
fidd—persistently denied all knowledge of the
transaction. They were summoned before Justice
Brown, yesterday, and then consented to par the
value of the goods aliedged to have been purchased
by them. Of course the allegation of the boys
docs not absolutely prove the Tact, and it remains
an open question, although pointing strongly to
willing concealment.
Tfaepractico of dealing with these Juveniles, es
pecially when the articles offered for sale are man*
IfeeUr such as they could not have honestij owned,
is very reprehensible and should at once be discon
tinued. Greater temptations than usual now ex
ist. and for the sake of gaining admission into one
of the many places of amusement now in the city,
there are plenty of ooys so oblivions to the laws
of mevm and tnum as to be willing to take what
ever comes in their way to gain the means of grat
ifying their not azmatnraP cariosity. It is almost
ottering a premium for theft, though the dealers
may not, and doubtless do not, as a class wish to
do so.
Opposition to the Permanent Soldiers
Hone.—Strange as it may seem, there are a few
in the city, who are constant readers of the rebel
organ, that are strongly opposed to the expendi
ture of money for the purpose of providing a per
manent home for wounded and disabled soldiers.
They generally use the same arguments set forth
in the Time*—that If the North would accede to
reasonable propositions, the war might bo ended
at once, Ac. Others argue, upon the same au
thority, that “ there Is no certainty that the sol
diers win receive one dune's worth of what is
contributed to the Soldiers’ Dome or Sanitary
Commission." Some of these individuals are
frank enough to give their authority for thiabe
tlef-or what they pretend to believe, as an excuse
to cover up their selfish pennrionsness. Some of
ffrpoo reports—made more by insinua
tions l hmn by direct assertions—have been put in
gradation by a fellow who failed to swindle some
of the inmates of the Soldiers' Home. The per
son who would go out of his way to circulate un
founded stories, to contributions for
toieral expense*/"wo SB
are canvassing- the city tor this humane enter
prise, wUlmaka a separate entry of peraons who
refuse to give, on the ground of rumors from tuis
or any other Individual, stating their authority for
the reports. The managers would be glad to trace
these reports to their source.

LAW INTELLIGENCE.
The Eock Island Bridge Case Revised
—Motion by Defendant to Amend
Pleadings.
THE CTTT CEMETERY—DISPUTED TITLE
TO THE SHE—SUIT LX CHAJCERY
COMMENCED BY THE CllY.
Bally Record of Cases In the
Law Courts, &c., dec.
Recorder's Court.—Tho People of the State
of Illinois vs. Josiah W. BisseU. This somewhat
old, but, at the same time, somewhat famous crim
inal action, which three years ago attracted a large
share of public attention, but which has lately
been in a state of suspended animation, gave signs
of “ coming to,” in the Recorder’s Court yester
day, under auspices which indicate that it will yet
be a “very wide awake” criminal proceeding.
It will be remembered that, in 1860, an Indictment
was fonnd against Josiah W. BisseU and Walter
F. Chadwick, by the Grand Jnry of Cook Connty,
for conspiring to bnm the bridge over the Missis
sippi river, at Rock Island. The proof failed to
satisfy the jury that they were guilty, as charged
in the indictment, and, in consequence, they were
acquitted.
Subsequently, in December, 1861, throe more In
dictments were fonnd against BisseU. In one, he
was, as before, indicted jointly with Chadwick,
for conspiring with him to burn the bridge on the
Joica tide. In tho two others be was indicted sep
arately, for. endeavoring to incite (as charged In
the one Indictment) the said Chadwick, and (os
charged In the other) C. P. Bradley to burn the
bridge on the Illinois side. After motions to
quash, in all three of the indictments, had been
■ mode and overruled, tho defendant feU back upon
the record of the previous trial, and pleaded autre
felt acquit to each of the three indictments, as
also the pica of not guilty. To the former plea,
‘‘The People” demurred generally, relying on the
ground that the charge in the indictment on which
Blescll had been acquitted was not identical with
those set out in the indictments then pending.
These demurrers were sustained by Judge Wilson,
a decision to which defendant’s counsel excepted!
without asking leave to plead over, and a biUof
exceptions was drawn up and signed.
In tho meantime the war. broke out, and Blase!
was drawn with others into the vortex of military
operations. It is now nearly threo years since he
began to assist in the. trial of the case of the
United States vs. Jefferson Davis ct ah, while tbe
records of the cause in which ho was- personally
interested, have been gathering dust among the
criminal archives of tho county. Tbe bUi or ex
ceptions was never forwarded to the Supreme
Court. Blssel returned home a few days ago, hav- j
Ing, we believe, resigned his position m the army,
and his counsel, McAllister, filed a motion to the
effect that he be permitted to withdraw his excep
tions to tbe rnUng of tho Court on the demurer
and file a new plea.
Tbe argument on this motion, made yesterday
before Judge Van Burcn, by McAllister, for tho
defendant, and Judge Arrington for tho people,
scemc-dto apply more particularly to the indict
ment for conspiracy, which contained four counts.
By the pleas on file, the plea of “autrefois acqnlt”
was applied to three of these counts, tho Ist, 3d
and 4tb, and the plea of “ not guilty ” to the
second. Although tho record seemed to indicate
that the plea of not guilty, entered by consent, had
a general application to the whole indictment.
Tbe propriety of granting the motion was
orgned with much bigor and ability by tbe connsel
on both sides. Tho decision of the Court will be
given to-morrow. We believe It is the intention
of the counsel for tho prosecution In this case to
get rid, as Cost as they conveniently can, of all pro
ceedings for delay, and'bring tho case to trial on
the main issue as soon as possible.
Siferiob Court.—Bill in Chancery in behalf
of the City. A long bill in Chancery was filed yes
terday in the Clerk's office of the Superior Court,
the purpose of which was to help tbe city out of
a legal hobble in which the neglect of those who
have managed its affairs in times past seems to
have involved it. The facts set forth in the bill
show a disputed title to what is now a very valua
ble piece of proparty including a considerable por
tion of the ground now covered by the Chicago
Cemetery, on the North Side, and arc substantially
as follows:
In 1848' Jacob MilUman purchased' of the Trus
tees of the Illinois and Michigan Canal, out lota
described as 45,40,45 and 4Q in the Canal Trustees’
Sub-division. Sec. S3. Township 40, N. of Ranee
14, £. of the Third principal Meridian, for seven
hundred dollars. Tnepnrcbase was made on canal
time,'viz: one-fourth down, and the remainder in
one, two and three years, with sis per cent, inter
est. MilUman received the usual certificate of
purchase, and went into possession. The next
year he died Intestate, leaving five minor chil
dren, of whom three, Catherine, Caroline and
David,survive. Cyrus Bentley was appointedad
mlnlstratorof Miluman’s estate, ana in that ca
pacity, in September, 1850, obtained permission of
the Coart to sell a portion of this land to pay
debts of the intestate with the proceeds. The pe
tition was granted, and on the 2Tth day of Nov
ember sold out lots 43 and 49 to tbe City of Chica
go for the sum of twenty-flrd hundred dollars. At
the time of this purchase there seems to have been
one outstanding note due from the heirs of Mill!-
man to the Trustees of the Illinois and Michigan
Canal. MHUman’s heirs had as yet no deed and
the city received none,bnt went into possession
without talcing any measures to perfect the title.
The heirs ofMlulman in the meantime remained
In possession of lots 45 and 46, paid np tbe note
that was outstanding at the time of the purchase*
by tbe dty, and in May, 1663, obtained a deed of
au the lots included in tbcfr father’s purchase, as
wclTas those which had been sold to the dty, as
those which had never passed out of their hands.
The daughters are in the meantime married, one
to Conrad Schell, and tbe other to Simon Nether
field. Not long a*jo they made quit claim deeds of
a part of the land in dispute fora nominal consid
eration to a person by the name of Page,
within a short time suits of ejectment have been
brought against this dty to enforce this title.
It is to enjoin these suits in ejectment and trans
fer the cause to the chancery side of the Court for
investigation that the suit in Chancery in ques
tion is Instituted.
A suit was commenced in the Circuit Court on
Tuesday, by Miss Calista Mather, daughter of D.
W. Mather, a well known commission merchant,
against Dr. Aaron Pitney, an old resident of Chi
cago, for breach of promise of marriage. In her
declaration, she avers the fact of a mutual promise
to marry, her continual willingness to adhere to
that promise, and the defendant's marriage with
another woman named Manraret Shields. She
lays her damages at $25,000. The case presents no
features of extraordinary interest thus far: we
shall furnish as full reports of the trial as its im
portance demands.

This classification is far from being precise, al
though, perhaps, tbe heat grouping that can be
presented. The cases of drowning are tbe least
susceptible of variation, yet in many of these it
cannot be said whether they are suicidal act or ac
cidental ; the verdict ot “ suicide” has been re
turned only where it was really certain that the
deceased bad taken bis own lira. So that nnder
tho head of •* murder,” it is well known that with
in the past twelve months several persons have
died of injuries received at ihe hands of others.
'Many more deaths have, resulted from Intemper
ance than hro credited to that agency. The
death cited as due to poisoning is only that one
case believed to have been accidental; of suicides,
two pot an end to their existence by poisoning.
Instances ol abortion have been but few, as report
ed. In most of these 'cases the body has Seen
fonnd wrapped np and conveyed to the water. The
following snows the number of males and females
on whom Inquests have been held, with unborn

plied from an examination of the verdicts separ

Coroner. Tbe fullest returns should be required
in all cases of violent or suspicious death, and

Editors Chicago Tribune:
My name having been mentioned in connection
with the coming Section to fill the vacancy occa
sioned by tho resignation of Coroner Schmidt, I
wish to state for the information of my friends and
the public generally, that I am not a candidate for
that office. Having discovered my name upon the
enrollment list of Marshal James, and having had
assurances from my many friends that my chance
in that enterprise will be successful, in which
event I shall be called oat of the city on important
business, to be absent for an Indefinite period of
time, I could hardly feel willing to allow myself
to be elected to the office of Coroner and thereby
entail upon tho cofinty the expense of holding an
other special election. J. SuamznnELD.
