Last full Gen. Howard reported that
thero was no necessity for the continua
tion of tho Frecdmon8 Bureau, and re
commonded that it be turned over to the
supervision of the military commanders
in the Southern States. But the Radi
cals, many of whom aro connected with
tho bureau in some capacity, who profit
by the negro vo'.o, became alarmed at
this suggestion,'nnd forthwith set to work
importuning Concross to continue tho
bureau for at least one year longer, in
the hope that "reconstruction" would
take placowithin that period, and that
thov Would bo eimbled to net the offices
rin the various States through tho negro
vote. But this political machine is main
tained at a heavy exponse to he people,
and the heavilv taxed in the Northern
States nro beginning to grumble at this
imposition for tho benefit of a few ad von
turcrs and political gamblers. The St
Louis Democrat, one of the most Radical
of the Western organs of tho Republican'
party, says :
"We find it very difficult to understand
the reasons of Congress for voting to con
ttnuethe Freedmen's Bureau anotheryear,
The bureau can hardly fail to do more
harm than good after the completion of
reconstruction and the admission of newly'
organized States, and the action of Con
gress, therefore, looks much like an ad
mission that its plan ol reconstruction is
nbt likely to succeed."
J he Philadelphia Aorli American
another organ of the Republican party,
whose radicalism will not be questioned,
says of this grand govornmont machine :
"The distribution of free rations at tho
South is a gigantic evil. The commerce
and industry of the whole nation earnestly
demand the rebuilding of the prosperity of
the cotton culture, while here stands a na
tional bureau readyto feed all the freed
men, whether they work or not. How under
such circumstances the cotton cultine is
ever to regain its former pitch of import
ance we cannot see. Gen. Howard attempts
to remedy the evil hy loaning to the plan
ters millions of the money of the bureau
on the security of their crops. But had it
not been for his ration nuisance, these plan
ters would have stood in no need ol such
aid ; and whether they do or not, we think
it is not the business of the government to
play the part ofthelmnker for the planters.
Ihe existence of the bureau should termi
nate with the admission of the reconstruct
ed States, (ten. Howard himself recom
mended the discontinuance of the bureau
at the time fixed by law. The courts of
tho South are now all open to the freed
men, who stand there in full equality, as
parties or witnesses, with any other race in
he country. I hey have the civil institu
ions in their grasp. The bureau is, there
fore, no longer needed. If it be abolished,
the idlers will all have to go to work to
earn their livelihood.
These nro only specimens of the pro
tests which tho more candid of tho Re
publican papors are uttering against the
continuance of this partisan institution.
But the Radical members of Congress
have decided that tho interests of their
party domand that the bureau shall be
continued, and that tho millions which
will lie required by this institution for
the support of the negroes in the South
must bo furnished by tho govornmont-
A standing army must be maintained in
order to see that those negroes are
brought to tho polls at every olection to
vote for the purpose of establishing a rot

over tho whitos in tho Southorn Jstates.

Hugh Wilson and John Barrier court
ed the same lady in Neshoba county, Mis
sissippi. Barrier married her, but idie left
the house of his mother immediately after
the corimony, in company with a brother
of her other lover, Wilson. Some days
flor, Wilson met tho parson who tied the
nuptial knot and manifested his displeasure
at that proceeding by beating the unlucky
preacher with a hickory (tick. He then
aoggCAted that if the reverend gentleman
had any friends around, he- would like to
take a whack at them. Barrier though

I .me irraj ana uimes, under mtorma--tion
brought to' its attention by one of
sForney'8 papors, and derived by this lat
ter from the Constitution of tho United
States, warns the faithful that impeach
ment of Andrew Johnson will not per
manently get rid of him. We presume
from the serious style in which the an
nouncement is made, that some Radical
ignoramuses had been laying this flat
tering unction to their guilty souls. Tho
Press and Times is careful to admonish
them f that this is a most "inexcusable
mistake," and to urge "caution." Be
wary, it says. Ejection from the Presi
dency will only unfetter a monster ; and
transported with fright, the editor's horror-struck
imagination pictures numer
ous calamities. First, he may becomo
Governor of Kentucky, and inaugurate
another war against "the best govern
ment tho world oversaw;" or lie may
tako command of things in Delaware, and
sitting at her capital "squat like a toad"
make untold mischief; or worst of all,
after swinging round an. immense circle,
may return to Tennessee, and squelching
out the gubernatorial aspirations of some
such "trooly loil" son as Stokes orMul
lins, finally land in the United States
Senate again, and thero bo a thorn in the
side of his persecutors for an indefinite
The opinion that Mr. Johnson would
be rendered by conviction, disqualified
for any offico under a State government,
is an error. Article 1 section 3 of tho
Constitution sayj :
' Judgment in cases of impeachment
shall not extend beyond removal from
office, and disqualification to hold and en
joy any office of honor, trust or profit un
der the Unilea States."
Membership of either house of Con
gress is not an offico under the United
States, and tho ex-President would there
fore not bo ineligible to fill such a posi
tion, and, of course, would be competent
to any State offico whose functions were
performed within the limits of the State,
This is a clear proposition.
"Wo arc not arguing it, however, as if
it wero disputed, but have alluded to tho
subject, rucroly to notice tho consterna
tion which Tennessee Radicals are suf
fering nt the bare thought of being
brought face to face again with that
tribuno of the people. Andrew Johnson
is still President, and if tho Tennessee
Radical ingrates who fed from his hand
for three years, will let him alone, he
may not disturb them in the way they
dread; but if they successfully houn
him to deposition, ho may turn and ren
them. Blood may not flow here, as the
truculent Stokes predicts, but the fu
would fly, they may bo sure.
Titk Washington correspondent of tho
Cincinnati Gazelle writes on the Oth inst
as follows :
"Ex-Governor Pierpont, of Virginia, to

Gen. Schofield in removing Pierpont. Gen
Grant heard the whole case, and after a full
examination oi the matter, positively re'

Schofield, and his new appointee, Well

known that Gen. Grant heartily approves
the action of Gen. Schofield concerning the
refilling of those offices where the terms o
present occupants have expired. Pierpon
is very much enraged, both at Gen. Scho

stories concerning the former, among news
paper men to-night, which are known to
be whollv unfounded, and circulated deliu
erately, in order to create sympathy for
himself and cover up the total inelhciency
of his administration.
These Radicals seem to know each

Judge Waldran, entirely ignoring the

exceedingly anxious to see the case settled
by the highest authority. It was one of
great importance, involving the rights of
private citizens, and to a certain extent
the rights of the courts. Although he
would not concede the rict of the petitioners
to an appeal, he was willing to suspend
judgment for a reasonable time, to give
the petitioners an opportunity ol present

ing the convertible bonds were authorized
by the general railroad act of looll, and
that the action of the Erie directors was
sanctioned by that of other companies, in
eluding the New lork Central and Hud
son. As to the proceeds of the stock, the
appointment of Keceiver was erroneous, be
cause the stock was in the hands of the
innocent third parties, while even were it
illegally issued and the proceeds in the
hands of the companv, no cause would ex
ist for the appointment of Receiver. On
these grounds the defendants demanded a
reversal of the order, with the costs,

therefrom, and the order for a Receiver
should be made permanent

noon, and a large number of witnesses
were examined. 1 he evidence taken was
mainly in connection with the finding of the
body after the murder. The case againBt
Whelan deepens hourly. Thegovernment
detectives are in possession of a slron?
chain of evidence implicaing him, and the
Crown reckons confidentially on his being
the man. a loaueu revolver was lound on
his person when arrested, and a cartridge
in one of the chambers was evidently new.
This chamber bore traces of having
been recently discharged ; other chambers
were bright and clear. The bullets with
which it was loaded were exactly the same
as that which killed Mr. McUee. It is
generally believed that a gang of ruffians
are mixed up with the assassination. Two
or three parties, against whom there is
strong circumstantial evidence, were ar
rested as accomplices of Whelan. In order
to expedite the trial, the Crown will proba
bly take the case out of the hands of the Cor
oner to-morrow, and then it will be brought
before the Jfolice (Jourl.

Washington, April 8. The Secretary
of the Interior sent to the House to day a
communication from the Commissioner of
Indian Affairs, who says, referring to
official reports of the 20th and 21st of
February last, in which reference was made
to the necessity of certain appropriates
being made at an early day in order that
the faith of the government and the prom
isea of the Indian Peace Commissioners
may be kept good. I desire to say that it is
evident to my mind, unless immediate ac
tion is had by Congress upon the estimates
referred to in said reports, and the neccsa-
ry funds appropriated to enable the Com
missionera to carry out and fulfill the
promises made with certain tribes, we shall
have trouble with them. I am led to be
lieve this from various rumors that have
reached this office of the feelings and in
tentions of certain bands and tribes on tho
plains. If we expect to keep the Indians
friendly with the government and at peace
with it, we must fulfill our promises.
otherwise we can but expect, as would
be the case were we dealing with white
men and Christians, and a renewal of the
troubfes of last summer. Besides, if our
agreements nre not faithfully carried out,
the Indians will soon loose all confidence
in the government; they will believe no
thing told them by its officers, nnd 'an al
most endless war will be the result, which
will cost millions of dollars to suppress,
and to avoid which thousands are only
asked. This question has become of so
grave importance that I deem it my duty
again to invite your attention to it if we
are to have another Indian war this sum
