THK SUPPLEMENTAL BILL.
Both houses of the Northern Congress
have passed the Supplemental Recon
struction bill. It bean upon its face ev
idnnee that it is not intended as a finality.
Coneress reserves to itself the right to
investigate elections and determine
whether they are full and free, and
whether "any voter was intimidated from
going to the polls." There is no mistake
nbout this affair. If the elections in the
Southern States shall not go to please
the Radicals, they are to be vitiated by
showing that a negro, a solitary negro,
was intimidated from going to the polls.
Of course this can be proved, and of
course it will be proved. It will be the
easiest thing in the world. There will
' always be those in the South, ready to
lubricate a case, and swear to it, too. If
an election is foand going against the
Southern loyalists, how easy would it
be for them, in disguise, to frighten
some poor negro from the ballot box,
end thus make a case, carry it to Con
gress and have the election annulled?
The constitutions formed are to be
ratified by a majority of registered voters
voting upon them. An accurate list of
registered voters will be kept and re
turned with the number cast. If less
than one-half of these do not vote for
the new constitution, it will not be rati
fied. Taken altogether, the two bills
constitute a subtle piece of machinery
to contrived that it may, by touching
ecret fprings, be made to revolve in
any direction desired by Congress. And
thus is complete, we suppose, the action
of Congress on Reconstrnction for the
lime being. The members will go home,
to receive the plaadits of their people.
Well done, tbon good and faithful ser
vant, then hast been faithful over the
North, and we will make yon ruler over
the South.
ASSACHU8ETTS CANDIDATES.
Candidates for the Presidency are an
nounced on every side. The Portland
Press, in a leading article, presents Sen.
ator Fessenden, and the Boston Post,
copying the article, alludes to the dis
tinguished Senator in most commenda
tory terms. Massachusetts trots out sev
eral candidates Charles Sumner, Henry
Wilson, General Banks, General Butler,
George F. Boutwell and John A. Andrew.
General Butler is also understood to be
a candidate for the Vice Presidency, and
several other Massachusetts leador. will
also, it is generally thought, be content
with that position among them Messrs.
Eliot, Dawes, Hoar, Bullock, Bigelow
and Devens. Mr. Lowndes, of South
Carolina, once said the Presidency'"wa8
neither to be sought after nor declined."
Now, however, it is much sought after,
end very rarsXy declined.
STEELING PRICE ft CO.
" Old Pap," says the Cairo Democrat,
is again in the peaceful pursuits of com
merce. He and his son have opened a
commission house in St. Louis. They
intend to transact a general commission
and forwarding business-v-a business in
which Gen. Price has had mnch experi
ence, he having bad a very successful
career as a business man previous to the
late war. Associated with him in busi
ness is his son, and they have in their
employ.Mr. Wm. E. Ladd. " Both of these

ness habits. Tbeir office is centrally lo
cated, capacious and . comfortably fur
nished, and we have no doubt the new
firm will command a fair share of busi
ness, having many friends throughout
the country. We wish them success.
BTINQINO. ,
The Chicago Times thus stings Lord
Chief Justice Chase: The refusal of
Chief Justice Chase to appoint registers
under the Bankruptcy act nntil the
Supreme Court shall have decided
iJia nnestion . of the power of
- -- i
Congress to transfer the ap
pointing power from the executive to
the judicial branch of the government, is
the moat remarkable case of conscien
tiousness that has lately come to light
As to the power of Congress to set aside
the right of trial" by jury in a state of
peace, the Chief Justice bas no scrup
lous mif-eivinga. But upon a question
which does not particularly involve the
Chief Justice s political friends, the de
pree of his judicial uprightness is some
thing wonderful.
. gT Colored troops, marching through
Richmond to the tune of "Hail Colum

gold watches and other trifle from tL

MILTON.
Tim London Guardian says: It m
J
be interesting to know that Milton was
not only a pwt, but a lexicographer.
It appears that the compilers of the
PAtnhriilire Dictionary, published in
1CS3, made use of a manuscript collec
tion in three large folios, made by Mr.
.ll,n Mitten." out of all the best and
purest Roman authors. Also, the fourth
edition of Dr. Adam Littleton s katm
Dictionary, published in 1703, has an
acknowledgement on the title-page of
its indebtedness to the same manuscript
of Milton. '

During 18G6 the exports from Great
Britain amounted to 1944,133,925 in gold
lilnli i 11 tier cent more thai the total

SHOE PEGGING.
At the recent exhibition of the Poly
technic branch of the American Insti
tute, in New York, a hand shoe-pegging
machine was exhibited, which is said to
have operated to the satisfaction of the
members. The exhibitor claimed that
bv his machine he could peg one pair of
boots per minute, the work consisting of
cutting the pegs from long strips of
birch wood, punching the holes and
driving a double row of pegs.
BTrFEAGE IN NEW JEE8EY.
A few days ago a report was presented
to the New Jersey Legislature in ravor
of striking the words "white and ''male

tend the right of voting to both women

there is a decided Republican ma
jority, a vote was taken on this report on
Wednesday, and the proposed changes
rejected.
iar The Richmond Enquirer is satis
fied with General SboGcld'a assignment
to that military district It says : "If
the civil authorities of our State must be
subordinate and overruled, the nnpleas-

to any one who would command in the
outset more of the hope and confidence
of our people than Gea. Schofield."

GEN. LOXCSTKKKT ON THK SIT
lATlfJtV.
The following letter from Geo. Long
street will cause a fooling of regret in
the minds of many of his admirers.
There is no doubt that he speaks the
truth when he says that " there can be
do discredit to a conquered people for
accepting the conditions offered by their
conquerers." For the life of us we can
perceive nothing in the military bill to
accept It is not addrsssed to the (lis
cretion of the South. It is positive and
mandatory. It sweeps away the State
governments, and places the lives and
property of the people at the discre
tion of a military commander. Scho-
field can bang Gen. Lee, and Sheridan
can hang Gen. Longstreet to-morrow,
without trial by jury, and there is no
help for it Where there is no power to
reject a proposition, it is absurd to talk
of accepting it The people of the
South have only one thing to do, and
ftiat is to submit But to the letter of Gen.
Longstreet:
Niw Oii.nns, Li, March 18, 18J7,
To the Editor of tha Now Orleans Times :
Dear Sir In your paper ofyesterday,
you have expressed a desire to hear the
views or several gentlemen upon tne po
litical condition of the country. 'I find
my name mentioued upou your list and
proceed, without hesitation, to respond.
As I have never applied myself to pol
itics, I cannot claim to speak to the wise
statesmen of the country, who are de
voting their energies to the solution of
the problem which agitates the public
mind. I can only speak the plain, honest
convictions of a soldier.
It can hardly be necessary at this late
day, to eater into a discussion of the
matter that is usually brought up in ar
guing upon the proposed plan for re
constructing the Government Indeed,
I think that many of them are not per
tinent to to the question.
Thestrik'.nc feature, and the one that
our people should keep in view, is, that
we are a conquered people. Recognizing
this fact fairly and squarely, there is but
one course left for wise men to pursue.
Accept the terms that are offered us by
the conquerors I There can be no dis
credit to a conquered people for accept
or; the conditions ottered by their con
querors. Nor is there any occasion for
a feeline of humiliation. We have made
an honest, and I hope that I may say, a
creditable fight, but we have lost Let
ds come forward then and accept the
ends involved in the struggle.
Oar people earnestly desirs that the
constitutional government shall be re
established, and the only means to ac
complish this is to comply with the re
quirements of the recent Congressional
legislation.
It is said by some that Coneress will
not reeeive us even after we have com
plied with their conditions. But I can
find no sufficient reason for entertaining
this proposition for a moment I cannot
admit that the representative men of a
great nation could make such a pledge
io bad faith. Admitting, however, that
there is such a mental reservation, can
that be any excuse for us in failing to
discharge our duty ? Let us accept the
terms as we are in duty bound to do, and
if there is a lack of good faith, let it be
upon others.
I am, very respectfully, your most
obedient servant, Jas. Longstreet.

We've often thought Noah and his fam

halt down by the gangway plank: Mr.

conceive to bave been a sort of domestic
tyrant, but a jolly fellow withal rough

snapping nt each other's tails and being
kicked at in return; the lnsking ones
falling off the plank and taking their
seat in the mud below; the lively ones
throwing up their legs in excess of ani
mal spirit and the joy of out door exer
cise the whole crowd, splashing and
lowing and barking and growling in
