of the bill passed by the House of Repre?
aentativea iu Congress on Uie 10th, pro
viding for Ilia assembling of the Fortieth
Congress on tho'4th Of March, instead of
in December, as heretofore. "The indi

will enter upou its duties immediately on
' the expiration of the present In this
eyent the terms of the Representatives
from this Stato will have expired, and we
will have none, unless there shall bo an

ii little doubt that the original

p. .110,) us'.ne, by the lmmth of Judge
Wayne, this language
" Pardons are general, hpecial, or par
ticular, absolute, statutory not. necessary
in some casts, in others granlable, of course.
We might mention the legal incidents pf
pardon, but those mentioned are enough to,
illustrate the subicct of ininlon and the ex
tent and meaHing'of'lh'e PremfienlJs power
to crant reprieves and pardons. It meant
that the power was to he used accdnling.to
law ; that is, as it had been used in Eng
land and in these States when they were
colonies, not becanre it was a prerogative
power, but as incidents to. the peif er f par
don. Without flich a power
of clemency to Im? exercised by pome de-
fiartment or functionary of a government,
t would be most imperfect and deficient in
its political morality, and in that attribute
of Deity whow judgments are always tern
pered with tuercv And it was with the
fullest knowledge of tlieaw on the subject
of pardons, and the philosophy of govern
ment in ,it baringnpon the roiutitution,
when this 'contt instructed Chftf Justice
Marshall to say in United States v9. Wil
son, I'eters, JOJ : As tne power nas oeen
exercisl from tune immemorial bv the
Executive of that nation whose language is
our language, and to whose political insti
tutions ours bear a close resemblance, we
adopt Iheir principles respecting the opera
tions and ell'ect of a pardon, and look into
their books for the rules prescribing the
manner in which it is to be used ' by., the
jierson who wmildavnll hftAtelf bf it." "
And furthflr n, ilitilge Wn ne says
" Where the words ' to grant pardontj' wore
used in the constitution, they conveyed to
the mind the authority exercised by the
English crown, or its representatives, in
these colonies. At that time both English
men and Americans 'attached the same
meaning to the word,'iprdon. , -In the con
vention which fraum the constitution, the
appeal was made to define or change. its
meaning, although it' .wis limited in eases
of impeachment. We must, then, give the
words the Same meaning- as prevailed here
and in England at the time it found xi place
in the constitution."
If we are to look into the booksof the
English government for the rules pre
scribing the manner in which tho par.
doning powor is to be used, as declared by
the Supreme Court, we will find ample
authority there conferred Upon the Exe
cutive of that government to grant a gen
eral amnesty for political offenses. Ac
cording to this opinion of the Supreme
Court, the constitution confers upon the
President the very jower of whih jt is
sought to dojH-ive him by a repeal of the
thirteenth seotioumf the act of July IT."

general amnesty under authority of our
constitution is in conformity with the
spirit of the decision of the Supreme
Court to which we have reforred. If
Goneral Washington oould lagally gront

MORE ABOUT THE ACCIDENT ON
TIIE EOVISVIEI.E ROAD, TITESUAT.
We take the following concerning the
late accident on the Louisville and Nash
ville railroad from the Louisville Owner,
of yesterday: '
" The train (No. 14) due here from Nash
ville yesterday evening, left Nashville at
0:30 o'clock yesterday morning, with three
passenger cars and a baggage and express
car. They ran on time to Buck Lodge,
Tennessee, which is nine miles north of
Gallatin, and the tame distance south of
Mitchellvillc, and the engine was going
excellently, when suddenly the engineer
felt a jerk, and looking out saw the three
passenger cars (one of them being a ladies'
car) off the track, detached from the rest
of the train and running down the embank
ment at Back Lodge Creek, which is about
six feet deep, into the creek, where they
piled up somewhat on top of each other,
and turned over, badly smashed up. As
soon as the passengers found the cars
stopped they commenced climbing out of
the windows, running out throagh the
doors, getting from the wreck in the best
way they could, and wading shore
through the nwlft,;cold water.
Mr. W. Taylor, the condnctor of the
train, had his head cut, but soon getting
from the car in which he was injured, soon
had all those who were on the creek bank
assisting the others from the smashed-up
cars. The ladies were soon nil rescued
from the ladies' car, but not before they
had all got wet through, and, fortunately,
with only two of them being injured, and
those slightly. The male passengers suf
fered more severely seventeen of them
being iniured most of them, fortunately,
being only braised or slightly cnt. Every
thing was done for the comfort of those in
jured. Their wounds were dressed by Dr.
A. C Vallandigham, of this city, and all
were brought to Louisville except S. A.
Griffith and Strong, who .returned to
Nashville, and J. M. Carter, who was left
at the Ritter House; at Bowling Green, be-
ing quite severely injured.
Mrs. Ritter and family were very atten
tive, furnishing dressing for the wounded,
etc. The accident Was caused by the
switch-lock at the north end of the" Buck
Lodge, the switch having been broken and
taken off the previous night. When the
engine and baggage car passed over, they
must have palled th switch open, which,
acting a? an obstruction, threw the other

regret to be obliged to announce the reap

Jt broke out a few days ago at Astoppri, a
neighborhood on the Bosphorus, and out of
twelve cases in that locality up to this date
eight have terminated fatally. Four.cases
and two deaths have also occurred, at the
arsenal on tho Golden Horn, from whence
it extended itself in the summer of.' 1865
over the whole city.
One death, of appoplectic or fondrbvant
fever, is reported from Bebeck. The dis
ease at present threatens to take an epix
demic form. If it should become epidemi
cal, it must be very fa!al, a3 the winter is
generally of a rude temperature, and much
suffering exists in consequence among the
