Stanwood for Judge of the Supreme Court. Gen. Buford has a dispatch from Omaha, which says there is no hope of peace with the Ogaliahas and Sioux. Gen. J. E. Smith is on his way to Fort Phil Kearney with several hundred recruits. He will command the Mountain District. Within the past w eek twenty men have been killed and two hundred head of stock stolen by Indians. The Times says two-thirds of the Surrat trial jury are Catholics. The Attorney General holds that District Commanders have no right to remove civil offi cers without trial by a military commission ; and then only wherf they have been found guilty of impeding the enforcement of the re construction act. This opinion has been adopt ed by the President. Gov. Wells and the city officials of Mobile will be ordered to be tried. Southerners here entertain the hope that this view of the matter will be officially promul gated; but express fear that the President will do nothing in the premises until after the time shall have passed for the July session. Gen. Pope, in a recent lettes to Grant, on affairs in Mobile says, from what he can learn he doubts if the removal of the Mayor and the Chief of Police has been most satisfactory to Union men and respectable rebels. The Tribune's Washington special says, as long ago as the 2d of April, Sherman notified Grant that he feared he would have to remove Trockmorton. Grant advised him to wait for the Attorney General's opinion on his power to remove. The World's Washington special says, the Cabinet to-day had an important session on the question of power claimed by certain com manders of military districts in the South to remove State and local officials. All members present except Browning. It was maintained by all of them but Stanton that the views of the Attorney-General were correct; that no such removals could be made under the Mili itary Reconstruction Act. It is further main tained their offices could not be vacant until after the occupants had been tried on charges defined, and in the manner provided by law, the same as against other persons. That even in case of their conviction and sentence, the vacancies then created under State and Muni cipal government, cannot be filled by a mere military order of the General commanding the district. Salt Lake City, June 14.— A report from Laporte this morning says, Mr. L. L. Hill, en gineer of the Pacific Railroad, was killed near that place yesterday, by Indians; also Mr. Archer, belonging to Hill's party, wounded. - A Radical's Belief.— We find the follow ing in the Philadelphia Age: If the American people wish to understand the real spirit of that party which is now rul ing the country, let them peruse the following extract from a speech delivered at Blooming ton, Indiana, by James Hughes, onè of the ablest and most prominent- Radical leaders in the West. That gentleman said— I am opposed to negro suffrage, not because they are negroes, or are black, for those are matters of taste and prejudice, but because the right of suffrage has already been too much extended and cheapened in this country. While I am opposed to extending the right of suffrage to negroes, I am in favor of dis franchising one-half of the white people in this ebun try. Our fathers committed a great and fatal mistake in extending as they did the right of suffrage. All history proves that there is but one interest that is conservative, and that can be safely intrusted with the governing power, and that is the property inter est. When a man is possessed of property he has a stake in the country and desires a strong and stable government, and will not endanger his property by unwise legislation, or by involving the country in a war. The great object in bur form of government has been the want of strength and power in the Fed eral government. It will be impossible to govern this fast and rapidly increasing country under the op eration of universal suffrage. Our system of govern ment has been materially and radically changed dur ing the-war, and it can never be restored to what it was prior to the war. The Constitution is not worth the paper upon which it was written. The first ef fect of universal suffrage will be to make the govern ment more nearly approach a pure democracy, but this cannot last long. We will follow the example of other governments. The strife of factions'Will go on until, ultimately, either the Senate or the President will assume the control, when we wil! have a strong and stable government. The British government is Ithe best government that has ever existed on God's earth, and the sooner ours assimilates itself to that of the British government, the better it will be for the country. I do not hesitate to declare, no matter how unpopular it may be, that if the negro race, and one-half of the white race, had good masters or mis tresses, they would be much better off and the gov ernment would be safer and stronger. The disfranchising of white men in the South shows that Mr. Hughes' sentiments iie at the foundation of the Radical party. The colored franchise movement is intended to keep them in power until the more important point can be reached, and the whole system of our gov ernment be remodeled in accordance with the despotic ideas of Mr. Hughes. The speech of this gentleman is a bold one, and the people must think of it as a matter which may be cuystalized into action sooner than they expect. - They Wheel About. —During Lincoln's reign, Mr. Binney of Philadelphia, son of the notorious« Abolitionist, Horace Binney, pub lished a- pamphlet to sustain the theory that almost supreme power should be reposed in the hands .of the President. Lately, he has put forth another pamphlet, in which he labors to show why the President ought not to be al lowed to control even the appointments to office.. To do thi»,. and excuse away his first theory, he says When I suggested; iuaformer paper, that the Pres ident was intended by the Constitution to exercise the whole power that was given by the clause, I had not a .conception that the power was anything like this. I agree that the Executive office is entirely un fit tor it, but I am equally clear that no department of government is fit for it; that such a power has not a precedent in' history, English or American, to justi fy it; and that it is as unnecessary, either in rebel lion or invasion, as it is unexampled,,, THE HOWLING PHARISEES. [From the New York Tribune.] The release of Mr. Davis affords to some of our contemporaries a pretext for malignant vi tuperation. The editor of this journal is howl- ed at with a vindictiveness-which is-comforting so far as it shows that the tongues of certain of our friends have not yet cleaved to the roofs of their mouths. Let that pass as the idle wind which we heed not. One or two obser- - vations, however, may be ventured in reference to a matter which seems to excite more than-, ordinary interest. Jefferson Davis was taken prisoner two ■» years 1 since. He was arrested as an assassin— and for his arrest the government paid the sum of one hundred thousand dollars. The Presi dent claimed to know in offering this reward that Mr. Davis was the accomplice of Wilkes Booth. He was thrown into a dungeon, and rpanacled, and held in harassing durance. Ab-, an assassin, especially as the assassin of Mr. ' Lincoln, this rigor and vigilance did not seem, unnecessary, and we were content. With all the proofs the administration claimed to have, was it not wise, nay, w r as it not due to the memory of the martyred dead, that speedy jus tice should be visited upon the great offender,. Certainly, if Jefferson Davis was concerned in the assassination of Mr. Lincoln, he was the chief assassin. The wretch who was shot, the four wretches who were so swiftly hanged one midsummer's day, were the mere instruments in the hands of the great criminal This belief induced Mr. Davis r arrest, and the payment of an enormous reward. What came of the«ar- . rest ? With evidence of his guilt in. the poa. session of Mr. Stanton—^with a hundred gener als only too happy to be assigned to court-mar—, rial duty—with the courts open, able lawyers and district attorneys duly commissioned, the great criminal was permitted to remain in,, prison, and not a word was said of justice. For • two years thia has continued, and now, at the end of two years, the government permits him, an unpunished assassin, to be taken from pris-,, on and ! released on bail. If this is right now, ' when did it become right? If, after all, the government has no evidence showing the com- ,, plicity of Davis and Booth, why was uot the • charge withdrawn ? Well; it was aaa traitor, and notas an assas-V : sin, that Mr. Davis was held,, and as such he should have been kept in jail. But wfay,keep',. him in jail? Treason is a crime, and a crime, according to Mr. Johnson, that should be pun-, ished. There is a lawful way of punishing men in this country. To Beep a man in prison with out trial is a violation of law, not obedience to*.' it. Mr. Davis may have committed many crimes—so many indeed, that, accordingto one howling Pharisee, " it is a disgrace and re-. proach to our country that he should ever be permitted to desecrate with his traitor foot prints the soil of a free State."' But how doi we know that he committed crimes ? ' There is but one way of knowing it—the verdict of twelve trusty men. Because Mr. Davis is a criminal, must we also be criminal.? Because he is known to have committed treason, must we also commit what is certainly moral trea-. son to the Constitution ? If it is right to take • Jefferson Davis, citizen, and imprison him two years without judge or jnrv, why uot» citizen Thurlow Weed, or citizen William Cullen Bry- . ant ? But it is popularly believed that Mr. Da vis is a traitor, and that, as a traitor, he should', long ago have been hanged. Well, it is also. popularly believed that if Mr. Thurlow Weed had his deserts he w ould long ago have been > in Sing Sing. We have no legal knowledge of the fact. Mr. Weed has never been arrested; nor tried; nor has even an indictment been found. He is at liberty, and so long as he is J not legally accused we shall* insist that he re- ! main at liberty,,and if necessary we shall find twenty bondsmen who will answer for his se-. curity until tried. The principle is the same,. whether it applies to Davis or Weed, or ci ti— zen Derrnot arrested for assault and battery. The law has no prejudices—the Constitution ; ■ no "popular"'punishments. Certain citizens testify their appreciation of the principle so conspicuously violated in the case of Mr. Davis by becoming his bondsmen. Listen to the Pharisees howling. It is popular • to howl at Mr. Davis, and hence all this loudly > echoing indignation. What is justice ? What , is law ? What is the Constitution!? What', are the honor and dignity of this nation 7 fclr. Davis is a traitor, and should be hanged! Well, Johnson is a patriot, and why did be not hang him ? The Pharisees who howl over Davis huzza for Johnson. So long as Davis was a fact we opposed him. The rebellion he led, the slave system he cherished, the disunion ' he preached, we have warred.upon* We war • , upon them now, and shall continue to do so .. until this land is a land of universal freedom and impartial suffrage. But Jefferson Davis • is no longer a fact. He no longer represent» ;.s armed treason. He is oar victim,our prisoner, the creature of the laws, and one in whose per.. ' son the laws have for two years been dishon- . ored. Against that-injustice we have.protest-. ed, as we hope to protest against injustice in any form, no matter how lofty or.-lowly the victim. This we do because we believe it to - be right. The Pharisees may howl ; nptwitb-. standing- Wé have heard .them, many and many a time before;- - >' -»- < -- : - Radical Punic Faith.—T he Cairo (111.), Democrat preoisely expresses our belief when it says If the people oC the South do net know the feet, we now infoim them, that the Radicals do not intend to , allow them to be.represented in the Congress of the United States, until they are converted to Radicalism, ADd if they adopt negro suffrage, the same bad faith will be exhibited.as was after they had abolished slavery* unless the negroes vote, with ithe Radicals ; and: pend Radicals to Congress.
