THE VXKCINI&K BEFOHE THE ALIEir.
On Saturday last, a deputation of Vir
ginians—"to thi manner bom," to a
man we 6uppo.e, waited upon the Presi
dent of the United States, Mr. Andrew
Johnson, "tho .Hen," and petitioned
him to alter the Amnesty Proclamation
by striking out the 13th exception, (the
$20,000 clause.) They represented that
this clausj Interfered with Tbe develop
ment of industry by binding up capital,
nnd so oppressed the poor. How feeling,
indeed. The deputation went on to as
-urethe President tliat when they en
deavored to borrow money in the North,
era or Mi.idle States they were met at
once with the objection tliat perhaps
they had over $20,000, Rftft'Lf tliey had
they could not lend it to them. So they
were unable to assist to work the poor
men that ef.lled upon them.
Tho President reminded them (hat
the Amnesty Proclamation did not cause
this distrust. It was the commission of
treason and the violation of law tliat did
it. Tho Amnesty Proclamation left
these men just where they were before.
It did not add any disability to them; if
they had committed treason they were
amenable to the confiscation law which
Congress had passed, and which he, as
President, could not alter nor amend.
In the Amnesty Proclamation he had
offered pardon to some .persona, but that
did not Injure any other persons. Would
they like to have tlio Amnesty Procla
mation removed altogether?' Would
they feel any easier in that case?
One of the deputation.—Xo. But it
would us very much if you would
extend the benefits of the Proclamation
to persons worth over 820,000.
The President replied that In making
that exception he had acted on the nat
tu-aljj-upposition that men had aided the
rebellion according to the extent of their
means. Did they not know this?
One of the deputation.—Ko; he didn't
The President.— Why, yes you do;
you know perfectly well it was the
wealthy men of the South who dragoon
ed the peoplo into secession. I lived in
thf3 South, and I kuow how the thing
was done. Your State was overwhelm
ingly opposed to secession, but your
rich men used the press and bullies and
your little or-ny to force the State into
eecesaij-. Take the 190,000 clause. Sup
pose a man ia worth more than tliat, now
the war is over, and the chances are ten to
one that ne made it out of the rebellion
by contracts, &c. We might as well talk
plainly about this matter. I don't think
tbat yoa are so very anxious about reliev
ing the poor. You want this clause remov
od so aa to enable you to make
money, don't you? If you are
very eager to help the poor, why
don't you take the surplus over tho
$20,000 ycu ownandgive it to them? In
that way you'll help them, and bring
yourselves within the beneii is of the pro
clamation. lam free to say toyou that I
think some of you ought to be taxed on
all over 320,000 to help the poor. When
I was Military Governor of Tennessee
I assessed such taxi s on those who had
been wealthy leaders of the rebellion,
and. it had a good effect.
One ofthe deputation.—"lt so hap
pens that none of us were leaders.* We
staid out as long as we could, and were
the last to go in." How does the Rich
mond Pep v': 'io like this speech ? Did a
cringing alien, or a citizen, ever stoop
The President.— Frequently those who
went in last were among the worst after
they got in. But be that as it may.—
Understand me, gentlemen, Ido not say
this personally. lam just speaking of
the general working of the matter. 1
know there has been among some an ef
fort to persuade the people that tlie Am
nesty Proclamation whs injuring them
by shutting up capital aud keeping work
from the poor. It docs no such thing.
If that is done at nil, it is done in con
sequence of tlie violation of law and the
commission of treason.
The President said, finally, that he
would look at the papers presented, but
go far, he had seen no reason for remov
ing the 13th exception.
It sems to us that the proud natives
of Richmond belittled themselves in at
all presenting themselves before Mr.
Johnson. He is not a Virginian! He ;

The Twenty Thousand Dollar Clause.
; A delegation representing tlie twenty

The President being ill, these delegates
' did not succeed in getting an interview
• witli him on Monday, but they were

We learn from good authority that

- ing tlie several good reasons which
» moved the President to the adoption of
r the twenty thousand dollar exception.
c there are as many equally potent why
d that clause in the Proclamation should
_ be abolished. One, especially convinc
e ing, is found in the fact that it paraly. es

it until a parilon has been granted, llie
s necessary delay in examining and pass

The Happy Woman.—The happy
woman in this our world—which is ap
parently meant to be the road to perfec
tion, never its goal-you will find too
few specimens to be ever likely to mis
take her. But you will recognize her
presence the moment she crosses your
path. Not by her extreme livlineas—
lively people*nre rarely either happy or
able to diffuse happiness—but by a sense
of brightness aud cheerfulness that en
ters with her, as an evening sunbeam
across your parlor wall. Like the fairy
order in the nursery tale, she takes up
the tangled threads of your mind, and
reduces them to regularity, till you dis
tinguish a clear pattern through the ugly
mate. She may be neither handsome,
nor clever, nor entertaining; yet, some
how, she makes you feel "comfortable,"
because she Is so comfortable herself.
She shames you out of your complain
ings, for she makes none. Yet, may
hap,' since it is the Divine law that wo
should all, like our Master, be "made
perfect through suflering,'' you are ful
ly aware that she has-had far more sor
row than ever you had; tliat her dally
path, had you to tread It, would be to
you as gloomy and full of pitfalls as to
"her it is safe and bright. She may have
even less than the medium lot of earthly
blessings, yet all she has she enjoys to
the full; and it is so pleasant to see any
one enjoy! For her sorrows she neither
hypocritically denies,iiorproudly smoth
ers tliem—she simply bears them; there
fore thev'.ome toher, as sorrows were
meant to come, naturally and hand- s
somely, and passing over, leave her full
of compassion for all who may have to
do the same.— Home Journal.
The following is told among other
tilings as having occurred during the
conference between Mr. Lincoln and
t.cneral Sherman, when tlie latter visit
ed the President anil Lieutenant Gener
al, just before tlie last advance on Rich
mond: * - , ,«r
i .enernl Sherman says: "I asked Mr.
Lincoln explicitly, when I went up to
City Point, whether he wanted me to
capture Jell". Davis, or let him escape,
and in reply he told me a story."
That "story" may now have a histori
cal value, and I give il therefore as Gen
eral Sherman said Mr. Lincoln told It
only promising that it was a favorite
story witli Mr. Lincoln, which he told
many times, and in illustration of many
points of public policy.
"I'll tell you, General," Mr. Lincoln
was said to have begun, "I'll tell you
what! think about taking Jeff. Davis.
Out in Sangamon county there was an
old temperance lecturer who wus very
.strict in tlie doctrine and practice of to
tal abstinacy. One day after n long ride
in the hoi sim, he stopped at tlie house
of a friend who proposed making him a
lemonade. As the mild beverage was %
being mixed, the friend insinuatingly
_sked if he would't like just the ieust
drop of something stronger to brace up
his nerves after the exhausting heat and
' exercise. "No,' replied the lecturer, '1
could't think of it; I'm opposed to it on
principle. 'But,'he added, witli a lon-
I ging glance at the black bottle that
t atood conveniently at hand, 'If you could
jf manage to pat in a drop unbeknownst
c to me, I guess it would't hurt me much!"'
c "Now, General," .Mr. Lincoln is saidr
t to have concluded, "I'm hound to oppose
s the escape of .led. Davis; but if you could
v manage to let liiiiislip out unbeknownst
n like, I guess it would'nt hurt me much!"
c "And that," exclaimed Gen. Slier
f, man, "is all 1 could get out of the Uov
