Be fore impeachment tbey were as valorous as Longstreefs ' Rancy Sniffle;! since, their courage, like ' Bob Acres',' seems to bave oozed out at their fiDgers' ends." Looking to the action of the North, this Geojcia. paper thinks Johnson has few real friends, and that the few he has are ready to throw him off. The article referred to concludes as follows. Whether its predictions are to be realized remains to be seen. We confess our impression that the result rests more with the Presi dent himself than with anyih'iDg to be expected from his Northern friends as initiated by thenEselvos. 1 They see that Johnson's race is almost run; that they have nothing to gain by bim and nothing to fear from him ; they are ready to retract all their threau and repudiate all their promises; they are ready ta deny tber ever knew any man of the name of Johnson. True, there is here and thero a newspaper whose editor is idiot enough to keep Johnson's name at the head of hia column, bnt we shall soon see that fiag ignominioasl hauled down.

Deprive any people of the liberty to prosper in the peaceful pursuits of industry, and the limits of endurance will be passed. There are obligations which men owe to society, but there are also nghU which they never will surrender. We have said that if a new secrot or ganization for self protection exists in our midst wa are not apprised of it. But, if it does, the present rulers of the State will do well to look to its cause, as well aa to the proper remedy. The iron rule is not likely to be efficient against men htavily oppressed against natural jus lice. Insubordination will not be sup pressed in such circumstances short of removal of iu cause. Let that be re- mnHd. and let- food government begin. even by them who are distasteful to the mftMP.. and irregularities need not be feared, and probably will have no exist ence. We counsel good government and obedience to law. Tbey must go hand a hand. We abhor the establishment of J! irrecular. illegal and irresponsible or ganizations for the purpose of lynch law. ben government is so well administered i to be even tolerable, every good citi zen should use aH his influence and power to pot them down. But we also abhor all tyrannies, and, more than all, that which, while it is efficient for the de struction of a people's prosperity, is in- fficient or the public protection ;ainst criminals and crimes. A gov ernment which will not do its own duty las no right to require that the people should do theirs. And, while it respecU iot their rights, it has no good reason for ex nentintr that its own will be respected. M " If the organization referred to exists, it is the outgrowth of the revolution ot 18C8, and not of that of 1861-5. If it sts, as suspected, for the purpose of mutual protection, it is because the npnnle feel that the time has come when they are driven to the necessity of pro- tecting themsolves. We encourage bo illegal acts. Such as are in necessary self-defense are not illegal. Whether nrh cause shall exist, and such reme dies be applied, rests with rulers rather than with the ruled. W e are confident that better government will at once give better order. And that when outrages cease, resistance will cease witb them. rarlUntentary Pettlfoga-insr. The maneuver in Congress by which an amendment restraining the Supreme Court was tacked on to a bill regulating appeals in internal revenue cases was so contemptible, on the part of iu author, Robert Bchenck, as to force condemna tion from the reepeotable portion of the Republican press. Ibe viadication ol himself, which Schenck has attempted, is not such as to raise his pettifogging ope ration much above the grade of the rascaL He was a pettifogger at Dayton in 1834, and he has never risen to this day much above that class of his profession.

Prnrnu I.cncia: On Satard.v. tha 8th day of February, the day ea which tha anneal waa allowed ia the eontemDt case against Messrs. Callaway and Rhea, InHirm Hunter came inta tbe Criminal Court room about 3 o'clock to sign the minutes and adjourn court lor the term. Hours. Callaway aud Rhea, and thai counsel. E. li, Yerger, John F. Sale, E Beecber and Col L, C llayiiaa, were present.' Mr. lerger arose, and saia that be desired to present aa application for appeal, aud propos.d to read the form of the entry for the clerk to traosonbe in the minutoa. Judge Hunter told bim to read i, which he did, when the Judge stated that )y had conoluded to allow the anneal asked for on one condition : that pending the appeal and until it should be determined by the supreme bench, no more libels against the eourt or himself should appear in the columns of the Avalac4, and that if defendant! or their counsel would give the assurance that such libelous publications should cease, no mittimus would issue against the defendants so long as they observed the condition. The counsel announced that the defendants, as well as counsel, would cive the assurance required. The Judge then announced that the clerk would enter the order allowing the ap peal in the form drawn up by Col. Ter ser. At this, Col. liaynea inquired if the order allowing the appeal would include the judgments against Mr. Campbell. Judge Hunter replied no, and said "Gentlemen, lot there be no misunder standing about this matter. Ibe ap peal is allowed in but one case, that is the Stit judgment against Messrs. Gallaway andRbea;" in "all of the other cases against them, and two against Mr. Campbell, the mittimus' is subject to the order of the Court to issue at anv time that the conditions are violated upon which the appeal in the first case is allowed." This being as sented to by the counsel, the Court then adjourned. The above u substantially a correct statement. William UDHTga, Judge Criminal court. I was not present at the time this occurred, bnt came into the Court-room soon after, and learned these facts from persons who were still there, as also from ne of the counsel for defendants. Those who are interested are referred to the olerk and counsel in the cause as to these facts, and also to the significant fact that for three or four weeks after this no attack upon Judge Hunter was published in the Avalanche. On Friday, the 6th, an article appeared in the local columns of the Avalanche in relation to an application for a jury of colored men, in the case of the State against Williams lyid Morton, which was a most palpable violation of the condi tions upon which the appeal, as I under stood it, had been allowed in the first case, and the mittimus suspended in each of the others. On Monday following the mittimus was issued against Mr. Campbell ; on Tuesday another " local," dated from tlie juil; and on Wednesday an editorial equally vindictive, and in violation of this pledge; on the same day Col. Gallaway was also committed. D. L. Henrt. We understood the Clerk of the Crim- nal Court to say oa oart, on the trial of the habeas corpus case yesterday, that it was distinctly understood and agreed in open court between Judge Hunter and the defendant's counsel that no further proceedings should be had in any of the contempt cases pending a decision of the Supreme Court in the case appealed. Mr. Yerger also testified that the agree mentand judgmentof the Criminal Court was without conditions made at the time. And so the record shows, which speaks for itself. He had pledged his influence witlAis clients and expressed the opinian to Judge Hunter that they would not attack bim as judge of the court, stating also at the time that in bis view such at tacks had been wholly personal hereto fore, and in nowise intended as in con tempt of the court. If a violation of any agreement has been made by any of the defendants, the remedy is in issuing new process of con tempt, a new case having arisen, which cannot by possibility affect the issue of any previously existing one. The idea of entering up judgments to be contin gent for their validity and execution on some .subsequent act or omission of a party to the cause, if such is Judge Hun ter's idea, is a novelty which could hardly bave issued from the brain of any other udge of a court of record extant in this country. And the idea that any repeti tion of derogatory epithets once applied can increase their severity or force is one which pertains to Billingsgate alone, and never met the sanction of true gentlemen. CONGRESSIONAL. In the Senate yesterday, on motion of Mr. Pomeroy, the Secretary of the Treasury was requested to return the resolution asking what had been the monthly expenses of theWTar, Navy and Interior departments since 1865, in order that te might offer an amendment asking an explanation of the expendi tures. The Chair presented the proceedings of a meeting of the citizens of Wisconsin in favor of the pending bills for the re moval of the tax on manufactures. The Senate then took up the bill to re lieve certain manufactures from internal tax. The question was on the amend ment mads in the Committee. v Mr- Van Winkle moved to strike out the amendment of the committee to sec tion 1, leaving it as it paa.ed the House, and striking out the tax on turpentine, coffge aod its substitutes, spices, refined sugars and jewelry. Adopted by H to 18. The question then recurred on Van Winkle's amendment, offered on Toes day, reducing the Ux on petroleum one- half, and it was adopted by 27 to 18. On tbe amendment of the committee providing that no drawback shall be made on the export of any article after the first of April, Mr. Morgan moved to amend it ry inserting, after the word "drawback," the words "on account of internal reveuae raxes paid," which was agreed to, and the bill paa.ed. As it was passed by the Senate, U now read as follows: lit it enacted, te That Sections 94 and 95, of the act entitled "An actio provide aa Internal Revenue to support the Government, aud to pay tha interest on the publio debt, a pi lor other pur no.aa." annroved June SO. 1864. and all tbe acta and parU of aoU ameudatory of said sections, be and tut same are nnreuy repealed, exoept only so much of laid sections and amendmenU thereto aa re lates to the taxes imposed thereby on gas made of coal oils, wholly, or in part of anv other material, or of illuminating ila, or arlioles which are the product of distillation, re-distillation, or the renning of coal, shale. neaL astihaltum. or aber bituminous substances, or wines therein described, anuff and all other manufac turca of tobacco. Inoluding cigarritos, cigars and cherroots; provided, that the products of the petroleum aud biluram ous snbstances before mentioned, exoept illuminating gas, shall, from and after the passage of this act, be taxed at one and a half of tbe rates as nxed oy sec tion 94, See, 1 That nothing in this act con tamed shall be construed to repeal or interfere with any law. regulation or pro vision for the assessment or collection of any tax which, under the existing laws, may accrue before the brat day of April, 1868, and nothing herein contained shall be construed as a repeal of any tax upon machinery or other articles which have been or may be delivered in contracU witb the United Sutes prior to the pas sage of this act. Sec 3. That after the first day of April next no allowance for drawback on ac count of internal tax paid shall be made on tbe exporUtion of any artiole ot do mestio manufacture on which there is no internal tax of exportation, and no claims for drawback on any article exported prior to June 30, 1866, shall be allowed, unless presented to the Commissioner of Internal Revenue within three months after this act takes effect, Sec. 4. That every person, firm or cor poration who shall manufacture, by hand or machinery, any goods, wares or mer chandize, not otherwise specially Uxed as such, or shall be engaged in tbe man ufacture or preparation for sale of any articles or compounds, not otherwise specially Uxed, or shall put up for sale in packages with his own trade mark thereon, any articles or compounds not otherwise specially taxed, and whose an nual sales exceed $10,000, shall pay for every additional $1000 in excess of $10,- 000, two dollars ; and the amonnt of sales within the year, beyond $10,000, shall be returned monthly to the Assistant Asses sor, and the tax on sales in excess of $10,000 shall be assessed by the Asses sor. Ibe bill goes to tbe House for con. currence in the amendments. On motion of Mr. Morrill, of Maine, the Postoffice Appropriation bill was made the special order for to-morrow, and the Senate adjourned. In the House, bills were introduced as follows: By Banks To regulate the compensation of labor in the navy yards. By Dawes One to aid in tbe construction of a railroad and telegraph line from Mobile to New Orleans. Mr. Boutwell, from .the Judiciary Committee, reported back Elliott's bill relative to the Supreme Court, with an amendment, which was passed. The ill is as follows: Be it resolved, etc.. That in the case of the removal of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court from office, or on his death, resignation or inability to dis charge the powers of said office, the same hall devolve upon the Associate Justice whoBe commission is senior in time, or until the inability shall have been re moved, or another appointed, and a Chief Justice of said court shall be duly qualified. Mr. Washburn, of Indiana, offered a resolution calling on the Postmaster General for information as to the special agents of the Postoffice Department, which was adopted. . The bill to oontinne for another year the Freedmen's Bureau, was passed yeas 96, cays 37. During the discussion Mr. Elliott read a letter from General Howard, wherein be denied that he favored the marriage between the white and black population. Sates of International Postage. On and after the 1st of April next, cor respondence will be made np and dis patched by the New York postoffice (in closed mails, via England, Belgium, and Oermany) -direct to Switzerland and to Italy, respectively, under the provisions of the postal convention1? recently con cluded with each of those countries. The rates of the international postage for letters and all other postal packets originating in the United States and ad drsised to Switzerland or to Italy will be as follows, viz: (a.) On Letters.

It was rumored that several companies of nfantry bad arrived from Philadelphia and Jersey City, but upon inquiry it was ascertained that the troops that bave entered the city are not companies but recruits for tbe regiments now form lng the garrison. One hundred men arrived for the 12th United States, and fifty more are expected, and one bun dred recruits arrived for tho 29th United States. These regiments bave been full np to the present time, the exist ing law authorizing only sixty-nine en listed men as a maximum number in one company. h.ach company is now filled up to ainety-ueyen, and company E, tth United States cavalry, the only cavalry company in tbe garrison, is filled up with one hundred and twelve men.
