,, ' ' ' 1, ntlv AJt AAitWaAlrltf At Ail THURSDAY, MARCH 39, 1800. Heading Matter on Each Eagc. macs or central mws. All the leading New York papers sustain tbe resident' veto or tho civil rights bill except the TWCwae and iW. By order of tho Proidcnt, all udvcrtifcroonU from tho War Department have been withdrawn from the- WcttlieU Pott, fit. Louis. This paper hai Tied with tho Chicago Jtcpullican and Mrs. Swisshcltn's paper in slandering the President. ThuDcpartmcntof Stato yesterday received advices from the consul of the United Stated at Liverpool, England, rclatiro to emigration. He represent that steamers and emigrant -vessels leaving that port for tho United States are filled with emigrants. Ship owners and persons en caged in tie hnslness inform the ecusul that it will be enormous, and that the Indications are that it will be heavier from Europe this year than it ever has since wo have been a nation. Under date of March 1st, tho Assistant Com missioner of Frcedmcn'g Affairs for the Stato of Florida Informs Major General Howard that thcru havo been no material difficulties or any unplcas rot relations engendered since his last report, and that even-thins; is progressing satisfactorily, and that tho condition of Ihofrccdmen is almost universally good. Ho represents that the planters are as well contented as might be expected, and aw everywhcre.dolng prosperously. The Commissioner of Customs a day or two tlnee received a report from a custom house offi' cer stationed on the EL Lawrcnco river, to the effect that a party of smugglers had succeeded in laying pipes at the'bottom of the St. Lawrence, through which they arc engaged in pumping- liouor from Canada to the United States. The causeof tho Mexican Republic is gaining ground. Tbo successes reported yesterday are confirmed, with the addition that tho national forces captured fifteen hundred men instead of five hundred. The account is doubtless exagge rated: but due allowance, must bo mado.fur South' cm enthusiasm in the reports of both sides. The French version will reach us from Vera Crui in about a week. It is raid that Edmund Cooper, member of Congress elect from the Fourth Congressional Dis trict, and who is now at lis home in Shclbyville, will soon address his fellow cititens upon tbo po litlcal issues of thoday. His speech will bo look ed for with interest, Harvey Tlrown. Esa.. of Jackson, has con sented to become a candidate for tjio Legislature from Madison county. He is a good and true in.m 7 Jjo mechanics of Memphis have recently re solved to memorialise the Legislature of Tennes see in favor of tho eight hourzystcm, 'and to ask for a laboring man's library association. A letter from Jackson, Mississippi, informs us that officers of the negro regiments being mus tered out, have been making from $30 to $30 on each of their soldiers In hiring them to tho plan' tors; and it also opens another chapter of tho mysteries of cotton-stealing. Notwithstanding tho largo number of labor ers who have left Georgia and Alabama for Mis flssippi this season, the demand is entirely inod equate to the supply. In many sections, tb.6 plan' tcrs cosset make more than half ti crop on ac count of tho scarcity of hands. Mississippi suf fered heavily from raids during the war; and much of her labor was run into Alabama and Georgia, And scattered. In Arkansas tho pros pects are very favorable, Repeated accounts as suro us that the crops will W very good. Tbe Ohio Senate has passed the bill author' iilng tho City Council of Cincinnati to purchase the Gt Works, at an expense not exceeding two and a half million dollars, and to issuo bonds therefor, to run not more than forty years. The latest Now Orleans papers report that tho excitement attending tho municipal matters of that city has almost died out. IJy an official order from 0 en. Canby, tho acting Mayor, J. A. Roller, was relieved, and George Clarke, resi dent of tho Hoard of Aldermen, has been ap pointed Mayor jro tem. All things ofo going on very smoothly and. the elected officers will, pro bably, take their placos without further opposi tion. Theplanlers along the banks of tho Mississip pi aro sufforing greatly on account of high water, Tho levees along tho coast aro in a bad condition, and broken in many places. Cultivation is stop ped almost entirely for tbo present. Planters up tho Arkansas river aro happy in anticipation of a big crop of cotton. Tfaoso up Xaioo river inquire for more labor, and say not inoro than half a crop can be brought forth with so few hands. It Is stated that 40,000 acre Of land in South east Missouri are being taken up every month under tbe Homestead act, aud that tho extraor dinary Amount of 70.000 will ho renclicilhyno.it May. Another caso of suffocation from leaking gas occurred 'in Chicago Saturday night. A young man named Kramer went to bed In his usual health and was found dead in tho morning, hav Ing been asphyxiated by the escaping poison, Swindlers now tnoko tours of the NcwYoik kitchen, persuading tho cooks to invest in bogus Fenian bonds. One girl had promised them $5, when they over-reached themselves by tho re mark that tho "girls next door had given $15." "Sure the girls next door are iiHrurJ," said Brid get, and started for the polico office, but the im pottors escaped. Tho number of young Southerners, of both foxes, who aro at present seeking employment In tho Northern rltlcs is almost Incredible It is said that In Now York alone there arc more than fifty thousand Southern born-nnd-brol persons seeking their fortunes. Tho cost of living In New York does not go down with gold. Western drovers havo had a hard time In that market lately. They had a good tiino yesterday. Beef cattle were scarce, and nd vanoo ru-o centi per pound, and closed fully as high as at any time In the last two months. Sheep sold freely at full prices, and hogs ndvnnccd one rent, clostng with an upward tendency. Insolence never soared to a higher flight than that attained in the lladical candidate's pronunciamcnto to the officers of election. Assuming that these officials nrc disposed to betray their trust, ho orders them to take the oath, and be careful that they observe it. He instructs them to guard against disloyalty and treason, as if they vrcrc not acting un der law, and were not as competent as he to understand their duties. Not content with hectoring tho judges, ho sits as universal challenger to "each and every" voter, nnd requires them to pass the ordeal of the oath at his bidding. "I, M. M. BltiEN, demand and I challenge." No man votes here that docs not undergo my inspection. Any vot ing done at these polls in violation of these orders makes void the whole election. "I am Sir Oracle, when I ope my lips let no dog bark." Hear all men, "you and each of you," this is the law given unto you by Maxsok M. Brik.w Weill things have reached a pretty pjss, if elections in this country ore to be con ducted at the dictation of a candidate. We can tell this blustering lladical that this is a government of laws, and the people have appointed officers to execute them. Good ienc and good taste teach him to be quiet, and leave tho conduct of this election to the Sheriff and his officer. THE Radical party in Shelby county seems to meet with much difficulty in keeping on the track the candidates they nominate for the Legislature in opposition to Messrs. Poston and Walker. They havo nominated two sets, but all, fo far, have declined to run. Mom, Tlios A. Hamilton and J. A. Docn, the gentlemen who were last put forward, have both withdrawn from the canvass, stating in their cards that when they ac cepted the nomination they did not under stand that they were to he the candidates of any party, or were expected to adopt patty views, or make party pledges. Heivy RoBBEar at Lagrange Safe BLOWN OPEN AND ROBBED OF TlIHEE Thocbant DoiAARS. The Memphis Cbm sntreuu rays that on Fridty night last, the tore of Mr. Baum In Lagrange, was en tered, the safe blown open and robbed of twenty -cvcn huridred. dollars in green backs, and three aundrod In gold. Ills thought that all the money will 1e recov ered from evidence they havo against par ties implicated in the robbery. Tui!

Judge BrtiEN, in his speech on Tuesday night, announced that lie proved to require a strict compliance with the franchise law, and demanded that admitted voters should require the prescribed oath to be taken by every one offering hbi vote. lie read the following circular which htj had addressed to tho officers of the election ; TEE ELKOTIOX OS 8ATC&IIAT.

I, therefore, urge you to guard the ballet box faithfully and effectually against the approach of disloyalty and treason, no mancr in wan cuaracter it may enme. A acsiro those entitled under this law to vote, and none others. Therefore, I now demand that tbe Judges at each voting precinct in the county, beforo receiv ing a vote, take the oath in said act prescribed in said seventh section,, page thirty-six. I also chal lenge each and every voter to take this bath at tne pons. A this is the law, and fastened upon tho public by Major Lewis, I desire it faithfully executed. I will contest every poll and every vpte which is not strictly in conformity with said act. I also rcaucsl ull-admitted voters to co to ttie nous. challenge the votes, and see that no one votes witnout first taking said oath in due form. Wc liavc no exccpllonj to thin notification to the officers of election?, hut think it ques tionable taste for a candidate to give it in the lordly gtjle here assumed. The charge that JIajor Lewis i responsible for the law, lias been denied by him and thoroughly dis proved, and of course Judge Ilmnx will no loneer repeat it. But it is the law of the Stale, nevertheless, and should be cu forced, and Major Lewis desires equally with his competitor that no vote should be polled which is not strictly legal. The sixth section of the law makes it the duty of the County Court Clerk to register, under oath, if he sees fit, applicants for the certificate of the privilege of voting, and it has been heretofore esteemed that the presentation of the certificate to the Judges of election was all that was necessary. But the seventh section provides hat an admtit- ted voter may challenge any voter, and it is (hen mado the duty of the Judges of election to administer the following oath: I inlpianlv rrnr thfit f will HkXCLVOETII sup Dort the Constitution of the United bUtea and de fend it against the assaults of iU enemies; that I ara an active friend of the Government of the Unit0"011"' iiiaij. win iicaruiy mu ou umjoi. .L.tnral ttmtln In wlintcvnr measures may bo adopted under the Constitution of the United made In pursuance thereof, to establish the Na i.i,,M nnthoritv overall the pcoplo of every fatate ... . - an,i unriAr nil flwi ntwi nruciamuLioua and Territory embraced in tho .National Union ' T .1...

Every true conservntive man can take this oath freely nnd without mental reservation, and they are the only men who will faithfully comply with it. The party represented by Judge DninK are to-day spit' line uiKin the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of Tennessee, They arc attempting to govern the people by a law higher or lower than cither, as the caso may be. The great end of con scrvatisin is to bring tho Government back to the principles announced in this oath and hence no true man should be deterred from meeting it at tho polls or elsewhere, Wc however caution tho friends of Major Lewis to be vigilant, and demand of their opjioiieiits the same oath that may be re quired of them. The chief object of this move, however, is to frighten voters. It is an assumed lion roar to terrify the timid. But it is only "Snuc the Joiner" nt last. It should deter no true man from doing his whole duty on Saturday, and it will not, though Judgi liniKN roar novcr so loudly. Tin: ikkui: mam: at home. The speech of Gov. Brownlow, atlvuor- ville, on Saturday last the main points of which we published yesterday presents to the people of this State tne issue which they arc to determine in their future political ac tion. Though he did not say that ho was in antagonism to the President's veto of the "Bureau Bill," he did say, "so far as the reconstruction policy of the President is de veloped, I do not indorse it ;" and he did say, " I go with the Congress of the United States, the so-called Radicals. I do not fear to side with them." That is a reasonably fair definition of his position, and we desire to especially call the public attention to it. The President has asserted tho vitality and binding force of the Constitution of the Union over all its parts. The Congress has said that the Constitution as it is, is an un fit chart for the guidance of the country, and they will make a new one, in which the Southern people shall have no voice, the de sign, intent and force of which is and will be te degrado the pcoplo of the Southern States to the condition of abject poverty and slavery. Tho policy of tho President is looking and directed to a restoration of the rela tions that wore temporarily interrupted by a great civil war between the different sec tionsto re-attach to the Government the afTections of thoc who may have been alienated to make the Constitution and laws of the land, supremo over both the North and the South to assure all the in habitants of this luacnificcnt country of free American citiicnship to give them the protection or the Government while enforc ing their obligations to it and thus pro moting peace and prosperity, and minister ing in the highest degree to the security and happiness of a people who established the Constitution and lairs for that avowed pur pose and for no other. On the Other hand, the Congress, so far as its intentions can bo gathered from its pro ceedings ,and action, has teen engaged in a wholly different work. It seeks to launch the country again upon the sea of experi ment, to institute new inquiries into the means of attaining the best farm of Gov ernment, and of producing the greatest amount of individual happiness and pros perity. In doing so they discard the past experience of mankind in all ages of the world, and violato without hesitation, every principle and precept and practice of the frantcr of our Government and its institu tions. It U for the people to decide between the two, to shspo their actions at home and at Uio ballot-box, so as to sustain the one or the other. Governor Brownlow sides with Congress, and declares war upon the Presi dent. The question for each and every, citi- en to decide is which he will support.' " ' This statement of the matter relieves it of all extraneousipoints ofebateand jre- j scnta gmt principles and objectin which the &eof the country as aEepublic isjat With us. there is no doubt or hesita.- i.

They say at that time the people were humble, sick of war, loiiinnpr. for peace on any terms, and ready to accept gratefully the pardon 01 the Uovernroent and to sub mit to any conditions that "might be made, while now they are, "arroiraut, exacting' and intolerant. Most of the witnesses of that class express the decided opinion that the withdrawal of the rederal troops and of the jrccdmen's iiurcau would be followed by an unrelenting proscription of white Unionists, and the proscription and remission to slaver) of the colored people. The change oftfeeling is very generally ascribed by these witnesses to the Presi dent's liberal policy. In regard to the Feberal debt, the people of Virginia are represented as in favor of its repudiation, or at least of combining with it the Uonletleratc debt. The witnesses who have been connected with the Confederacy, however, deny this, and represent thepcoule as unwilling' to pay incir Miarc oi uie reuerai ueut, oy taxation. Un tins subject Ucncral lice s opinion is thattucy are willing to pay both, and are opposed to a repudiation of either. Outside ot tltese matters of general in quiry, mere is one historical episode con f.ectcu witli tne secession ol Virginia and - ..... . . . . . , the outbreak of the rebellion, in which the testimony of three witneses was taken. ibis was a conference soucht for and held by Mr. Lincoln with a member of the Vir ginia secession Convention, delegated by tlie Union members of that body, Mr. J no. f. JJaldwin, prior to the opcnintr ot the rebel batteries on Fort Sumpter. The first state ment on the subject came lrom Air, J no. li. Laws, an uncompromising Union man all through the war, and who had himself been a member of the Virginia (Jonvcntion. lie testified that on the evening of the lGth of April, 18C1, he visited Jno. Minor Botts in Richmond, and -learned from him that he had an interview with J. P. Bald win. The narrative of the transaction given by Mr. Uaklwin is this : After relating the cir cumstances of a special messenger being sent to Richmond by Mr. Seward, with a request that Judge Summers or some other leading member should come to Washington to tiave a conference with Mr. Lincoln, of his being sent for and accompanying the member to Washington the same night; of his.being in- irouuceu mc next morning uy ur. ocwaru to Mr. Lincoln; of Mr. Lincoln's taking him into a private bed room that they might b' the more free from interruption. He cave a narration of the conversation, which was open by Mr. Lincoln's remark ine: Mr. Baldwin, I am afraid you have come too late. Too late for what? I am afraid yon have come too late, said he. I wish you could have been here three or four davs sooner. Why, replied Mr. Baldwin. Allow me to say, Mr. President, that I do not understand your remarks, iou sent a special rucsscn per to Richmond, who arrived there vester. day. I returned by the shortest and" most expeditious mode of travel known. Vhydoyou notadjourn tho Virginia Con vention said Mr. L. Adjourn it! How do you mean, sine die? Yes, sine die. It is a standing menace to me winch embarrasses me very much. I am very much surprised, said Mr. B. to hear you express that opinion. Tho Virginia Convention is in the hands of Union men, who 'have in it a clear and controlling majority. e arc controlling it for conservative results. We can do it with perfect certainty if you will uphold our hands by a conservativ policy here. . If we were to adjourn sine die, leaving these questions unsettled, it would place the Union men of Virginia in the attitude of confessing an inability to meet the oc casion. The result would be that another conven tion would be called, which would be under the exclusive control of secessionists, and an ordinance of secession be passed in less than six weeks. Ourtrue policy is to hold the position that we have, for you to uphold our hands by a conservative national course. The Union men in Virginia would not he willing to adjourn that Convention until we either effect POnie settlement of the matter, or as certain that it cannot be done. Mr. Baldwin then went on to sketch out a plan of the pe'icy which he thought the President should pursue, embracing a con ciliatory and assuring proclamation, a call for a great National Convention, nnd the withdrawal of the forces from forts Pickens and Sumpter. This was about the substance of the in terview; Mr. Lincoln giving Mr. B. no pledge and no promise, and making no offer of any sort. Mr. B. visited Mr. Seward the same af ternoon, nnd found him extremely earnest in the desire to settle the matter, nnd apparent ly shrinking from the idea of a clash of arms. Mr. Haldwin went on to Richmond and reported to the gentlemen who sent him.

By the first section of the bill, all persons born in the united ataies and not subject to any foreign power, ex cluding Indians not taxed, are declared to be citizens of the United States. This provi sion comprehends the Chinese of the Pacific States. Indians subiect to taxation, the peo ple called, gypsies, as well a3 the entire race designatcd'as blacks, people of color, negroes, mulattoes, and persons ot Aincan uiooa. Every individual of these races born in the United States by this bill is made a citizen of the United States. It does not purfiort to declare or confer any other right of citizen ship than Federal citizenship; it does not propose to give these classes of persons any status of citizens of the States, except that which .may result-from their status' as- citi zens of the United btatcs; the power lo con fer the right of Stato citizenship is just as exclusively with the several States as the power to confer the right of Federal citizen ship is with Congress. The right of Federal citizenship thus to he conferred in the several States on the gener ally excepted races before mentioned, is now lor tne lirsi tune pronosea to oe given uy law. If, as is claimed by many, all persons who are native born already are. by virtue of the Constitution, citizens of the United States, the passage of the pending bill is not necessary to make them such. If on the other hand, such persons are not citizens, as may be assnmed front the proposed legisla tion to make them such, the grav,e question presents itdlf. whether, while eleven of the thirty-six States are unrepresented in Con gress, as at mis nine, it is sounu policy iu luiike the entircolored population, antl all Other excepted classes, citizens of the United States. Four millions of these have just emerged frem slavery into freedom. Can it be reasonably supposed that they possess tlie rcquisiiu quaiiucauons iu limine iuuiu iu all the privileges and immunities of citizen ship of the United States ? Have the people of the several States expressed such a con viction It .ma bo asked whether it is necessary that they should be declared citi zens in order that they may be secured in the enioymertt of the civil rights proposed to be conferred- by the bill. Those rights aro by hederal as well as by State laws se cured to all domiciled aliens and foreigners, even before the completion of the process of naturalization, and it may be safely assumed that the same enactments are sufficient to give like protection and benefits to those for whom this bill provides special legislation. Besides the policy of the Government, from its origin to the present time, seems to have been that persons who are strangers to, and unfamiliar with our insti tutions and our laws, should )as3 through a certain probation, at the end of which, be fore allowing the coveted prize, they must give evidence of their fitness to receive and exercise the rights or citizens as contempla ted bv the Constitution"? the United States The bill in effect proposes a discrimination against large numbers of intelligent, worthy, and patriotic foreigners, and in -favor of the negro, to wnctn, alter long years of bond age, the avenues to freedom and intelligence have iust now been suddenly operfed. He must, of necessity, from his previous unfor tuhate condition of" servitude; be' less inform ed as to the nature and. character of our in stitutions, than lib who. coming from abroad, has to some extent at Ieastfamiliarized him self with the principles of a government to which he voluntarily intrusts life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, yet it is now proposed by a single "legislative enactment to confer the rights of citizens upon all per sons of African descent, born -within the ex tended limits of the United .States, while persons of foreign birth wlio make our land their home must undergo a probation of five years, and can only then become citizens upon proof that they ire of good moral cha racter, attached to the principles of the Con stitution of the United States, and well dis posed to the good order and happiness of the same. The first section bf the bill also con tains an enumeration of the rights to be en- loveil by those classes so made citizens in every State and Territory in the United States. As these parties are to give evi deuce, to inherit, purchase, lease, sell, hold, and convey real and personal property, and to have full and equal benefit of all laws and proceedings for the se curity of persons and property as is en joyed by white citizens, so, too, they are made subject" to the same punishment, pains, and penalties common with white citizens, and to none others. This perfect equality of the white and colored races is attempted to be fixed bv Federal law in every State of the Union over the vast field of State jurisdic tion, covered by these enumerated rights, In no one of them can anv State exercise any power of discrimination between the different races in the exercise of a State policy over matters exclusively affecting tho people of each State? It has frequently been thought expedient to discriminate between the two races by the statutes of some of the States North as well as South. It is enacted, for instance, that no white person shall inter marry with a negro or mulatto. Chancel lor Kent says, speaking of the blacks, that marriages between them and the whites are forbidden in some of the States where slavery docs not exist, and they are prohibited in all slaveholdiug States by law, and when not absolutely contrary to law they are revolt ing and regarded as an offense against pub lic decorum. I do not say that this bill re peals State laws on the subject of marriage between the two races ; fpr, as the whites are forbidden to intermarry with the blacks, the blacks can only make" such contracts with the whites themselves as they are allowed to make, and therefore they cannot, under this hill, enter into the marriage contract with the whites. I cite this discrimination, how ever, as an instance of the State policy as to discrimination, and to inquire whether if Congress can abrogate all State laws of dis crimination between the two races in the matter of real estate, of suits, and of con tracts generally, Congress may not also Te-' peal the State laws as to the contract of mar riage between the races. Hitherto every subject embraced in the enumeration of rights contained in the bill has been consid ered as exclusively belonging to the States. They all relate to the internal policy and economy of the icspective States. They are matters which in each State concern the do mestic condition of its people, varying in each according to its own peculiar circum stances, and the safety and well being of its own citizens. I do not mean to say that ujxm all these subjects there are not Federal restraints, as for instance in the State power of the Legislature over contracts, there is a Federal limitation that no State shall pass a law impairing the obligation of contracts; and as to crimes, that no state shall pass an exposl facto law; and as to money, that no State shall Inake anything but gold and sil ver a legal tender; but where can we find a Federal prohibition against the power of any State tj? discriminate, as do most of .them, between aliens and citizens, between artificial nei-sons oiled cornorntoi and natural persons in the right to hold real es tate? If it be granted that Congress can repeal all State laws discriminating between whites and blacks, on the subjects covered by this bill, why, it may be asked, may not Con gress repeal, in the same way, all State laws discriminating between the two races on the subject of suffrage and office? If Congress can declare by law who shall hold lands, who shall testify, and who shall have capac ity to make contracts in a State, then Con gress can also by law declare who, without regard to race or color, shall have the right to sit as a juror, or as a judge, to hold any office, and finally to vote in every Slate and Territory of the United States. As respects the Territories, they come within the power of Congress, for as to them the law-making power is the Federal power; but an to the States, no similar provisions exist vesting in Congress the power to make rules and regu lations for them. The object of the second section of the bill is to afford discrimination and protection to colored persons in the full enjovment of all the rights secured to them by tlieprece coding section. It declares that anj person who, under color of any law, statutit, ordi nance, regulation, Or custom, 8hatl subject or cause to be subjected any inhabitant of any State or territory to the deprivation of any right secured or protected by this actj or to different punishment, pains, or penalties, ,on account of'such person having -at any time been'held,inacoriflitidnof slavery or involuntary servitude, except as a punish- menfr crime wKereof tike party shall have been duly eon vieted, or by reason of color or? irace, than is prescribed for the punishment pi a wane jrson snail oe deemed guilty ot a misdemeanor and conviction, and shall be punished by fine not exceeding one thousand dollars, or imprisonment not exceeding one l.iV. j i . jwfw uviiu, uiuic turcreuon oi uie courts. This section seesas to be idesiened to aufilv oomeexistingor future law of a State or. territory wnicn may conuict with the provi sions of the bill now under consideration. It provides for counteracting such forbidden legislation by imposing fine and imprison ment upon tholegislator who may pass such conflicting laws, or upon the officer or agents who shall put or attempt to put them into 1 : T i rr - rr . u-tiAiuiuju. niuL-uns an omciai ouense, not a common crime committed against law upon the person or .property oHhe black racd Such an act may deprive the black man of nis property, qui not ot ins right to noid property. It means a deprivation of the right itself, either by the State judiciary or the State Legislature. It is therefore as sumed that under this section members of a State Legislature who should for laws con flicting withthe provisions of the bill, that the Judges of the Stato Courts who should render judgments in antagonism with its terms and that the marshals and sheriffs who sliould as ministerial officers execute the processes sanctioned by the State laws is sued by Staje' judges In the execution of their judgments, could, be brought before tribunals, and there subjects to fine and im prisonmcntfor the performance of the du ties which though State laws.may impose. The legislation thus proposed invades the judicial power of the States. It says to every btato court or judge, if yoa decide that this act is not unconstitutional if you refuse, under the "prohibition of a State law. to allow a negro to testify if you hold that upon such a subject matter the State law i3 paramount, and under color of the same re fuse the exercise of the right to the negro vour error of judgment, however conscious. shall subject you to "fine and imprisonment. X do not apprehend that the contacting legislation, which the bill seems to contcm nlate. is likelv to occur, so ns tn rpmlor it necessary, at this time, to adopt a measure of such douutiut constitutionality. In the next place this is the duty of a ju dicial decision, and converts the State' judge into a mere ministerial ofliccrbound to de cide according to the will of Congress. It is clear -that, in States which deny to persons, whose rights are secured by-the first section of the bill, any one of those rights, -II ?! I .1 ! ?1 - IV .? Ji ' ui crjuiuim auu civil cases aiiecung mem will, by the provisions of the third section, come under the cognizance of the Federal tribunal. It follows that if any State which denies to a colored person any one of these rights, that person should commit a crime against the laws of the State, murder or any other crime, all protection and punishment through the courts of the State are taken away, and he can only be tried and punished in tne reuerai courts, ilow is the criminal to be tried if the offense is provided for and punished by Federal law. That law and not State law is to govern. It i3 only when the offense does not happen to be within the provisions of the Federal law that the Federal courts arc to try and punish him un der any other law. Then resort is to bo had to the common law as modified and changed by State legislation, so far as the same is not inconsistent with the Constitution and laws of the United States. So that over this vast domain of criminal jurisprudence provided by each State for the protection of its own citizens aud for the punishment of her sons who violate her criminal laws, Federal law, wherever it can he made to apply, displaces State law. The question here naturally arises, from what sources Congress derives the power to transfer to Federal tribunals certain classes of cases embraced in this sec tion. The Constitution exnrosslv divlnrra that the judicial power of the United States shall extend to all cases in law and eouitv arising under the Constitution, the laws of il. tt:-.i cn j . t , i mc uurnii ouues, anu treaties maae,anu which shall be made under their authority: to all cases affecting embassadors or other public ministers and consuls : to all cases of i - i ' , uuumuii anu maritime junspruaencc : to cantroversies to which the United States shall be a party : to controversies between two or more States, between a State and cit izens of another State, between citizens of -i:m, ci.i.. uiuciciik ciaicj, ueiweeii citizens oi uie same States, claims of land under the grant of the different Stales, and between a State or the citizens thereof, and foreign Stales, citizens or subjects. Here the judiciary power of the United Suites is expressly set forth and defined, and the act of September 24th. 1789. estiblishing judicial courts of the United States, in conferring upon the Federal courts jurisdiction over cases originating in State tribunals is careful to confine them to the classes enumerated in the above recited clause of the Constitution. TJiis section of the bill undoubtedly com prehended the cases, and authorizes the ex ercise of powers that are notj- the Consti tution within tho jurisdiction of the courts of the Uuitcd States. To transfer them to those courts would be .an exercise of athor- ity well calculated to excite distrust and alarm on the part of the States, for the bill applies alike to all of them : as well to those that have a3 to those that have not been engaged in rebellion. It may be assumed that this authority is incident to the power granted to Congress by the institution, as recently amend ed, to enforce, by appropriate legislation. the article declaring that neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as punishment lor crime, whereof the party shall have been dnly convicted, shall exist within the the United States or any place subject to their jurisdiction. It cannot, however, be justly claimed' 'hat, with a view to the en forcement of this article of the Constitution, there is at present any necessity for the cx-i ..!.: e ii ,i i .i , tn ci cisc ui un iuu jiuwers which tins uni con fers. Slavery has been abolished, and at present nowhere exists within the jurisdic tion of the United States, nor has there been, nor is it likely that there will be, any at tempts to revive it by the people of the States. However, if any such attempts shall be made, it shall become the duty of the Gen eral Government to exercise any and all in cidental nowers neriuirv nnn nrnnpr tn maintain inviolate this pvernmental law of the ireectmen. The foregoing is all of the message we received up to the time ct going to press.j A DAXGEROCS DRIFT. Concerning the enormous power which the Civil Rights bill, vetoed by the Presi dent, would place in lib hands, the friends of the measure say that the power is in the President, and if despotism comes it must be through him; and this, says the National Intelligencer, "brings us to the most impor tant practical point of all," which it states in the following terms: " He could not ex ecute such a law, for he would not betray the people. They know he could not They, therefore, hope to pass it over his veto, and when he refnscs to provoke universal insur rection, to he put down by the monstrous tyranny to which they invite him, knowing he cannot accept it, they will attempt to im peach and ranove him." ' "This," says the Cincinnati Commercial, is a pretty distinct declaration that the Pres ident will not execute this bill if it should be passed over his veto, and become a law. Such an announcement shows the dangerous drift of nffiurs." Miss Anna Dickinson is a peripatetic lecturer in thNorthern cities. She is of the North, northy, stringy-necked and strong minded. She grapples with questions which baffle whole cabinets of statesmen, and dis poses of them as easily a? she would make a pudding-hag, or backbite her neighbor. She is now engaged in the patriotic work of de nouncing President Johnson for the delec tation of the Radicals. A cotcmporary is reminded by her of old Dr. Johnson's re mark when Boswell told him he had been to hear a woman preach.' "Sir," said the gruff old moralist, a woman preaching is like a dog walking on his hind legs, it is not done Kell, but wc are surprised to find that U U done at all. The Case Well Stated. The Knox ville (bmmcreial, whose editor was never in sympathy with the South in the war, but who, in harmony with the true people of East Tennessee, is unwilling to follow the destructive policy of tlie Radicals, contains the following pungent paragraph. We like to quote from such authority on ruch a sub ject: " Every man that will -sot indorse the Radicals ud swallow the irfrro, held, body snd heelj and swetr it wsj & it morsel to Uke, is now called a rebel. Now whs, do these Radicals want? Iter want you should say that yoa beliove tho nejrro if jastas eood ss the white man. They want you should believe that the negro ourht to vote, to sit on juries aodfintlwjudre's beneh.and.if hi can cet the vote, they want he should b electe.1 as President of tbe United States."
