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

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 ?

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

None of them would see salvation in
this world if the rigid tests of loyalty
which they challenge should come back

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.

All this is very nice, and the South re

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.

Y00RHEE8.
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

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

Jeff's release.

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

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. ' - "

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.
