Maroh 5, 1866 SECOND VOLUME PUBLIC LEDOEE. We enter to-day upon the second volume of the Public Ledoeb, the Brst having closed on Saturday last We cannot, even at the hazard of bad taste, avoid saying, in this connection, that as we have made the Ledger a success in the past, we shall make it a greater suc cess in the future. Overcoming those obstacles which beset , the origin of a newspaper, and render its success a problem to be worked exit by patience and industry, we now challenge com parison in this respect with any journal in the city. Step by step we have pro gressed until our circulation in the city is, as we have reason to believe, second to neither of our cotemporaries. It is still progressing with great rapidity, and by the close of the second volume, we expect to challenge comparison with the foremost paper in the State. Those who patronize us in the way of advertising have discovered the advantages the Ledger affords, and are reaping a har vest of public patronage far beyond their expectations. In the future, as in the past, this journal will speak its senti ments without reserve. It will belong to no party.pander to no clique.but with all the power it possesses, will sustain the right and combat tha wrong. THE XANLLAff CODE. Thus truthfully does the Louisville Journal assail those whose thirst for Southern blood is still unslaked: "Jir TER803 Davis attempted to break np the Union, you say? Very well; didn't Wendell Phillips and his friends work for that object for a quarter of a century T If Datis is haltered, how about Phillips ? Bat be committed overt ' acts. Shall, then, the instrument, sometimes weak and insigniBcant, that fires the temple be brought to condign punishment, while the scheming villain that urged him on to the perpetration of the deed of dark ness walks proudly forth, smiling with an air of superior innocence, and exult ing that retribution overtakes the wicked T We are not palliating secession. We abhorred it, we labored to prevent it, we (bed hot tears when itcame, and we were not mistaken as to its swift and appalling consequences. , Bnt, in all candor and sincerity, we don't think that those whose persistent and unflagging efforts gave it occasion and power, who denounced the Constitution and the Union in terms of measureless obloquy and bitterness, ought not now to turn round and demand the sacrifice of those who supported their own bantling for secession teat their bantling, and but for these men never could and never would have seen the light. If the 1 bloodthirsty ' exact severe and absolute justice, let the axe sweep rnnnd the entire circle. Well may those advocates of the Man lien code heed the suggestion of Portia: 'consider fh! That in the mr ol itutic son of ua ' Should see salvation. None of them would see salvation in this world if the rigid tests of loyalty which they challenge should come back with merciless severity npon themselves." EXPECTED FBOCLAKATIOR. , The President's proclamation declaring the war ended and the States restored to ibeir full constitutional relations to' the Union, when issued, will, as the Boston Post very truly says, relieve the vital questions before the country of much em barrassment, and deprive the Radicals in Congress of much power for mischief. What the next move by Congress may be it is impossible to divine; perhaps an effort to continue the war and to effect a dissolution of the Union; but, as tbe army and navy are not nnder the com mand of the M. C.'s, speeches and resolu tions will not enable them to support such treachery with very great efficiency. Tbe people will sustain the Union and the Union President, and see that equal laws and eqnal rights prevail throughout the land. The madness of faction will be curbed. The people have had enough of rebellion, turmoil, and death, and now ask for peace and security. Sectional enmity is not to be fostered to gratify personal cupidity and revenge. A TEXAJ sTEAXI. The Galvetoo (Texas) Nett says, we can see no other reason for refusing to Southern people the privilege of emigra ting to Brazil or Mexico than a disposi tion to pnciih them. It msy not be that Radicalism expects to hang many more of ns; but it does not wish to be put to the trouble of taking lands from anybody but the original rebel owner. Besides, i Bsdical Congress expects to male the legislation of this session operate as m punishment npon the South, and can not bear to see persons escaping from the contemplated torture. While we believe that these designs will be frustrated, we cannot bnt remark their malignity. Too numerous to be hung individually, tbe rebellion must be punished indirectly by legislation concerning its property and political privileges. That that punish ment is the object, must be evident from the opposition to emigration. The real meaning of it is, the Radicals intend to give the negroes the political power of the South, and are determined that the Southern whites shall submit to the in fliction. We repeat that they will not succeed. Still they deserve the credit of the effort ' y THE IMPERIAL FORCES. Saturday evening's Washington Star says: We have information from an officer recently in the service of Maxi milian, in Mexico, to the effect that n January his force was in numbers as follows: French, 30,000; Austnans, Bel gians, Egyptians, etc., 10,000; Mexican guerrillas, 5,000 ; making a total of abont 45,000 men. The force has 120 field nieces, and includes 12 reciments of j cavalrv. Maximilian haB on paper a native force of 30,009 men under foreign officers, but this was proved entirely una vailable, for whenever the attempt has been made to muster them they desert in such numbers that it requires the services of all the reliable troops near the rendez vous to watch them. It was said at the time our informant left Mexico that Mar shal Bazaine's chief of staff had gone to France to ask for a reinforcement of 20,000 men, and it is highly probable, as recently Marshal Fobet stated in the French Chambers, that a reinforcement was required. It was also reported in Mexico that the Austrian Government had started a project to induce the emi gration of 100,000 men to Mexico, and that the number would be mustered out of the Austrian service, with the under standing they would go to Mexico and enter the service of Maxijiiliax, by building up military colonies, and hold ing themselves ready to support the Emperor when called for. tOFTT PUjSCJUATIOK.

Lou- itville Journal ' All this is very nice, and the South re lies npon the President, but while it has no objection to the Constitution being punctuated with stars, it doesn't fancy for tself the punctuation of bayonets. THE COUJTY ELECTIQg. This event is over, and we are glad of it Many good men have been de feated, but then, all good men cannot hold office. Our Irish fellow-citizens have been quite fortunate in securing the offices. AVe trust that they will per form the duties appertaining to them ith the earpestness and industry with which they sought them. Meanwhile the street corners are agitated with the wildest reports in respect to dozens of extraordinary things concerning the manner and result The question is asked, did not hundreds vote unlawfully? If it is answered at all it is vague and unsatisfactory. Will not the whole thing be treated as a nullity, and the old offi cers hold 'over? is propounded. We don't know. We do not intend to know, nntil we hear something we definitely can know. We are glad that the affair is over, and at present, have no further comments to make. FASHION 01 A THROKE OP GOLD. A New York reporter, describing a recent ball in Gotham, says: Fashion sat npon a throne of Gold. For eight happy hours the scene was filled with wavy gauze and glistening satins, studded with brilliants, and warm with an atmosphere of smiles. It was easy to mistake for the perfume of breaths the odors of the flowers which nestled everywhere in snowy bosoms, on diamond-powdered coiffures or in soft hands. It was delight ful to follow the spirals of the enchanted waltz, entwining happily the form of the golden youth-tide of New York. It was a bath of dazzling delight; enough to intoxicate the young, and where others might endeavor, alas I to renew the im pressions which are dead. INDIA HAFF AIRS. The Indian Agent and Superintendent at Sante Fe, New Mexico, in his report to Commissioner Cooley, dated February 10th, 186C, states that he had received complaint from the Xavejoe Indians, that the Utes had made a raid into the Kavajoes' country and killed many of their people, besides having driven off a large amount of stock. Reports reach him that there are but a few hundred Kavajoes remaining. The Agent doubts these reports, and says that the Indians have no correct idea of distance or num ber. Ee thinks there are about three thousand of them in the Reservation. SEPARATION. The Marshall Flag is in flavor of divi ding the State. It says: The reasons for sack division are so obvions that it is scarcely necessary te name them. That it contains too great an extent of terri tory none will question. The interests of the East and West are too dissimilar to be nnder the same municipal laws or regulations. These, not specifying many others that are palpable, are sufficient to warrant immediate action in ine manor. , JTEGBO' TESTIMOSt. An interesting case lately came before Judge Kino in tbe Court or iomi Pl. at Baltimore. It was a suit rent brpught by a negro landlord againsf a white tenant, in wnicn it was aougm m infrnriiiio a rmnrea witness, auis nnnneeri tV thft dflfendaflt's COUnSel, "I"!"""; TV .

The New York Express says the ex pulsion of Mr. Voorhees has created considerable indignation thereC , It is re garded as it undoubtedly was a most unjust and impolitic affair. Forty-five Republican members refused to vote on the final question, believing, as many Of them assert, that Mr. V. was fairly elected. The necessity for increasing the party's vote, as suggested by Mr. Stevens, was the only reason for turning hira out, and upon that ground alone he was expelled. ME. DAVIS. . The New York Herald Fortress Mon roe correspondent states that Jeff. Da vis pretended to be surprised that the National vessels in the harbor fired a gun for each of the States, including the lately rebellious ones, in their Xsatior.a! salute on Washington's birth-day-- His health continues good, and at times he converses freely, and in an entertaining manner on all kinds of subjects. The surveillance of vessels arriving in Hamp ton Roads is still continued, to prevent Jeff's release. t. BMUOOL1BO. The Commissioner of Customs has re ceived late advices from Montana Terri tory, stating that large quantities of goods have been and are now being smuggled into the vicinity of the mines from Canadian provinces. Goods have been seized to the amount of $.10,000, and the Collector of that District reports that he is bending every energy to the breaking up of smuggling now carried on in that quarter. The Washington Star states that a let ter passed through the postoffice of that city recently, addressed to " Joh W. Forney, D. D.," and supposes that " D. D." stands for " Dead Duck." The New York World suggests another interpre tation of the mystic letters " Dirty Dug." In either case " Occasional " has got a name which will last him a life time. We think it means Doubly Damned. ' - " At Eufaula, Ala., tbe small-pox is raging terriblj. The mayor of that city has issued a proclamation requiring heads of families to report every case of eruptive disease which may occur within twelve hours after its occurrence. They are also further directed to suspend a red flag, with the word "Small-pox" written upon it, from the front door or gate.; ' ' ; JQT Secretary McCclloch has de termined to reduce the clorical force of his department, and it is expected that from five hundred to seven hundred clerks will be discharged as rapidly as the interests of the service will permit The Quartermaster General's force will also be reduced to a lower footing A lecturer in Boston is creating a sensation by discoursing upon the " Im mortality of the Inferior Animals." Per haps it is well enoueb that he should in terest himself and the Hubitet about this matter. Louitciut Journal Perhaps the fellow's chances of living hereafter depend npon the truth of this theory. ftaT A Havana letter says the landing of slaves in Cuba from Africa continues. A lot of one hundred was recently sold for 130,000 to a planter, who it is said is one of those who some time ago entered into a covenant not to deal in human flesh. 1ST A collection was taken np in the Scott Street M. E. Church, of Covington, on Sunday morning, to aid in rebuilding Methodist Church in Atlanta, Ga., which was nearly destroyed by shot and shell during the siege of that city. The sum of f 1C7 was raised among the con gregation. Mr. Bcchaxax has not vet written a letter in support of President Johnson's veto and his speech to the rebel mob of Washington, but one may soon be ex pected. Both theee documents have his unconditional admiration. This is the way the St Louis Demo crat talks. t&"A widow washerwoman owns a small piece of ground at Pithole. Some friends got her consent to sink a well npon it, and the result is a barrel of oil every ten minutes. She had several of fers of marriage immediately. 19 A New York lady, with a fortune of one hundred thousand dollars, recently married a poor barber. That comes of the modern extravagance in hair dress ing. 1 he barber reached the lady s cof fers by tampering with her locks. J3T Mr. Nti said lately in the United States Senate, that he was no more a friend of the North than the South. He violent Radical, and this remark of his proves that be would deprive the North of civil liberty, if he could. S&The only manifestations of dis loyalty in the South are denunciations of Tbad. Stevens and his gang. If hating such unmanly men be disloyalty, then the South is hopelessly disloyal. :x i 1 .. A letter from Rome snys that at the next consistory Bishop of America will receive a Cardinalship. . . Another Presidential Talk. The last Presidential talk was on Sat urday to a Committee of Baltimoreani, who waited" bpon' Mr. JohnsWand pre sented him a copy of tbe resolutions adopted by a recent meeting in that city. The President, having read the resolu tions, responded in these words : : i 1 ! Genti.emek : I cannot make nny speech in reply, but in response to what has been said I will simply remark that my policy, to which you have alluded, . and which is before the country, wns not announced as the result of impulse, nor was it thrown out for any ad captandum purpose: it was announeea bb uia resuu of conviction, of mature consideration as a necessary consequence of the prin ciples npon which this Govern .a ent rests. That policy which 1 honestly regard as heinir the best for the country, will con tinue before the people without the slight est deviation, and without being moved from on m part I do not say this in a spirit of menace or threat to anybody, but simnlv to cive assurance that there will be no abandonment and no shrink ing from that policy, because it is be lieved that the very existence and perpe tuity of the Government depend on the maintenance of the principles which have thus been enunciated. I am not insensible to the remarks hich have been made accompanying the presentation ' of. these resolutions. The mind and heart of a man who would not feel more or less inspired or impress ed by what yon have said, must be ex tremely dull and barren. I feel the full force of what you have said, and I think I know bow to appreciate it, and so feel ing, I am impressed with the conviction that my duty must be performed without regard to consequences. . Your encour agement at this particular time seems peculiarly appropriate. . a our counte nance and proffers of support under the present circumstances, inspires me with confidence and strength, and a hope that the'country will ultimately triumph and those great principles will be sustained. It is not necessary for me to remark to you that I entered this contest at its very t , t i . ,,..:....) incipiency, anu a uuyo uuv ucimrai a single hair's breadth from the line of policy I then laid down. I stand now precisely on the same ground that I stood on in the Senate on the 18th and 19th days of December, 1860. I know that it has been said, and no doubt by many designedly said, that here is a President who was elected by a party, and who, on coming into power, abandoned that party that he has Tylerized his administra tion; that he has joined the Copper heads, and thines of this kind. Those things have no influence upon me; they fail wholly to drive me from the discharge of my duty; but if yon and I with others have been employed for four years in resisting a separation and dissolution of the Union, and now have reached a point when reaistence has ceased, if we can be instrumental in conciliating and bringing back all the people to an honest, loyal and thorough support of the Government, it seems te me we are doing a great deal and accomplishing the work we under took. ' It happens sometimes in the best ot families if I may be permitted to use the illustration that there are differences and feuds, but when these differences' are understood and arranged and the feuds subside, the parties can approach each other feeling more kindly toward those from whom they had been astray than they did before; tbeu I do not think we are doing wrong if we, while maintaining principles, while trying to preserve the Government, we have succeeded in con vincing them of their error and bringing back to the folds of their fathers those who strayed. I think this a result of which all should be proud, and for which we should not be taunted. If I know myself my only object is to preserve the Government. I want it to continue in loyal hands and none others. I hope that the time will soon come when the country will be thoroughly reconciled, but to secure all that is necessary for this purpose will require a severe struggle, fori am free to say to yon it is not worth while to a)isguise it, that the very same spirit which animated the rebellion at one end of the line, now exists at the other to some extent Hfnre the recent rebellion there was one set of gentlemen who were trying to dissolve and break up the Government for the purpose of pre serving the institution of slavery, and another set of gentlemen were willing to break up this Government for the pur pose of destroying slavery, and so they averred; though the respective parties disagreed in the object they wished to accomplish. They agreed in one thing, and that was the destruction of the Gov ernment ; and so far as that point is con cerned, the one was as culpable as the other. The blow was first strnck at the Southern end of tbe l.ne. ihe spirit which was making war npon the princi ples of the Government must have some- . . . .. ; j thing to vent liseu npon, ana it joinea with those who were for the Union against those who were for rebellion. But now when rebellion is put down vou find an attempt to change the char acter of the Government, we mast equally resist it The attempt is to consolidate and concentrate absolute power here. It is destructive to the Government, and it is a manifestation of the same aP'nt which attempted to break np tbe Gov ernment 1 stand opposed to both, i stand with you for the Government, for the Constitution, for the supremacy of the law, and for obedience to the law and tbe Constitution. Let it be understood that so far as snaking candidates for the future is con cerned, I have nothing to do with it If I can be instrumental in accomplishing the great work we have undertaken to bring about peace and harmony and re conciliation among all our people, and again p'.sce this Uovernment npon its firm basis, I shall feel that I had reached the summit of n.y ambition. I have no other object in view, if I know my own heart and my own feelings. WLatU Itl A Mr. Cross, an American, is adver tising in hngland a most mysterious addition to bis men's menagerie, in the person of an anonymous animal, which be describes as being of most nonde script description, as follows: It is of amazing size and strength, seems endowed with a greater portion of intellect than almost any animal of the brute creation. The bead is very large. the hair on the forehead rising to a peak. The nose, forehead and chin, a beautiful red color. The cheeks, which are very prominent, a pale bine, with a beard of a light orange. The color of the body is speckled brown. Hands and arms perfectly haman. The tricks it has been taught such as smoking a pipe, which it does with a degree of elegance, are truly remarkable.
