THE COUP D'ETAT.
(hie f tho uiowt outrageous pro
teolings that ever dirgraccd a public
body, occurred at our Common Coun
cil lloom on Friday last,' we refer to
tlx attempt of tho republican ltfrtion
o tho Council to depose tho Controller,
, and thereby hangs a talo, v huh has
Veen known to only tho initiated. It
' appears that at the Republican Caucus,
irld previous to the election, a proiu.
inent and shining light of the party,
rocommentled to the meeting the pro-
pxioty of uiaUng no uouiiuation, that
if it was made it would be sure to bo
defeated, but, said ho, let the Demo
crats mako their nomination and then
. the Germans would nominato and the
ltepublicans oould select from ' each.
rhe matter being under advisement, an
unscrupulous demagoguo present sug-
create a reaction and possibly save
them. And what do you suppose the
fertile brain of this honorable gentle
man brought forth ? Why this: that
high sounding charges should be pro-
fered njrainst the Controller, and of
jwwor could blazeu them forth to the
world that he had attempted to rob
tlio city, and haddono sundry henious
tilings, upon which he should be
turnod out of office. A caucus of the
, Republican members was held and
the wattor laid befor them. Tho hon
orable gentleman stated that ho did
iiot know that the charges could be
eustained, but as a party measure it
must be done. After much hesitation
principle and honor were sacrificed,
und the Controller was mado the vic
tim. Tho day of tho trial came on,
Uud tho trial proceeded. As they had
it all their own way tho Controller
jind his Attorney wero overruled on
every point, but on their own showing
no single charge was maintained ; on
the other hand tho Controller was
fully justified in every particular, not
ushadowof evidence appearing against
him; nevertheless he was deposed as
far as tho radical majority could do it,
the vote standing 4 to 4, tho Mayor
giving the casting voto. The question
of jurisdiction was raisod, an effort
was made to refer it to tho City At
torney, but no, the Lity Attorney a
opinion was not wanted in that case.
, Another effort was made to have tho
evidence introduced under oath, but
no, they would have no statement
under oath, as tho brilliant Alderman
of Teutonic persuasion from tho 2d
Ward remarked that they would Jo
the business in their "own quiet way,"
and they did so do it, and disgraced
the city and covcrod themselves with
infamy thereby, for the sako of accu
mulating sufficient political capital to
carry their party through the charter
oloction. Tho pestilent demagogue,
whose Ishniaelitish practices in poli
tics, business and every sphere of life
are a by-woid and a reproach as well
to tho community as to himself, who
misrepresents tho 3d Ward in the
Council, acted as accuser, Judge Ad
vocate, judge, jury and chief witness.
A choico subject he to arraign docent
people for official or any other mis
conduct. .
Thore have been during the past
few yoars many irregular trials by
military commission under the plea of
military necessity, many outrages upon
civil rights which have left a foul 6tain
uiKjn our national escutcheon that
1
timo will not goon obliterate, but all
these had some plea of justification, as
intonded or the public good. For
this, the latest and meanest act of
radical tyranny there is not even this
poor apology; it is puroly a partizan
inquisition without authority, dignity,
cause or decency, to meet, at tho ex-
peuso of law, right and every principle
of common courtosv a pressinc: en-
pncy in local politics. We shall pub
Iidi the charges and answer in our
next, together with some other facta
in connection therewith.
Incrctso of Voters.
At tho registration of voters pre
paratory to tho recent election, thero
wero registered the unexpectedly large
number of live hundred and twelve
voters, or portons claiming to bo 6uch
-about equal to ono-third the whole
number of votors in tho city in the
kOveral wards, as follows: First Ward
220: fcHicond, 170; Third, 115. The
Mumber registered in the First and
f hird t ards is much greater in pro
jtortiun, than in the Second. This,
taken in connection with the fact that
tho Firt and Third Wards are close,
u tul the large number of Irish and
Canndwiiui brought in, especially in
tho First, ond voting the democratic
licket, is highly fcUggcstive of dt-mo
emtio colonization and illegnl voturs.
The largo aggregate voto may bo
juvouiiU'd fur bv several cucumstances
1st The colouization of illegal vo
tcrs.' 2d. Tho removal of voters from
omo other place, or from tne ward
to another, od. Minors coining of
fc.go. 4th. Tho coming in of the
'noaks" who would acknowledgo uo
citizenship or obligation to this coun
try while the war was pending, least
they might bo drafted or culled upon
to cnlUt, but now, since tho country
ii out vf danytr, they ate ready to en
ny nil the privileges of citizenship,
;.nd nil loiigi-r withhold thi'ir names
jioiu tho vutcrfl li"t. In some iustan-
ces, jtorhaps, they bad failed to becomo (
naturalized; in other cases, being nat
uralized, they had not been registered
in the city. It is a pity that this class
of patriots, who would not acknowl
edge themselvs citizens when the coun
try had need of their assistance, should
ever be allowed to become so at any
other time. They have proved them
selves unfit for citizenship. They
w ere the subjects of Queen Victoria,
or somebody else, when our country
was in trouble, in most cases sympa
thising with its enemies. Now they
are citizens and ready to vote with its
enemies. Daily Enterprise.
And so they unquestionably did
vote. The election having: resulted in a
largely increased Republican vote it
is fair to infer that most of the newly
registered electors voted the Republi
can ticket. The result is "certainly
suggestive of radical "colonization and
illegal voters" and "may be accounted
"for by soveral circumstances. 'let.

"ready to. enjoy all the priviligos of
"citizenship, and -no. longer withhold
"their names from tho voters list." -The
1st and 4th classes in the list
swelled tho radical voto to such an ex
tent that no one can well wonder nt
tho overwhelming republican victory.
Valuawlk IsroitMATioN. The En
terprise is at present engaged in the
very laudable business of giving in
struction which will enable persons
having proper taste and talent in the
line to realize a handsomo profit by
the ro-issue of canceled chocks, orders,
&c, heretofore supposed to be worth
toss. Tho editor hates " little beggars"
but is generously disposod to aid those
who would " turn an honest penny-'
by the practice of uttering fraudulent
paper. Wo give his first lessons to
neophytes. Speaking of certain can
celled orders, ho asks : .
" Is it not an easy matter, by wet
ting the torn edges und pressing them
out in a letter press, to partially oblit
erate the cancels, so that they can be
passed to unsuspecting persons ?"
And as tho result of experience in
the business, ho says :
Wo have seen specimens of checks
which have passed through the usual
form of bank canceling, and having
been wet and the edges pressed to
gether, to a casual observer would
scarcely show any signs of the cancel
ing. They miy-ht easily be passed.
The next effort of the editor in this
line will doubtless como out under tho
hood of "useful hints to june'ile pil
ferers, with practical suggestions on
the art of robbing hen roosts and petit
larceny in general."

(By (he President of tho Uniw-d Shittw.)
A 1'UOCLAMATIOX.

by the forcos of tho United Stated en

were declared to 'bo in a Btate of in

And whereas By another ; proclama

1S02, issuod in pursuanco of an act
of Congress, approved June 7, same
year, tho insurrection was declared to
be still existing in tho States afore

Virginia, and the port of Sevt Or
leans, Key. West, l'ort Royal and
Beaufort in South Carolina, were de
clared to be in a state of insurrection
against the United States; '
And ichertai, The House of Repre
sentatives on the 22d if July, 1801,
adopted a resolution in the words fol
lowing, viz :
"Iiesolced by the Hons of Jtepresenta
tictt of the Congress of tfte Untied States,
That tho present deplorable civil war
has been forced upon the country by
the disunionists of the Southern' 6tates
now in revolt against the Constitution
al Government, and in arms around
the Capitol; that in this emergency,
Congress banishing all feelings of re
sentiment will recollect ouly its duty
to the wholo country ; that this war is
not wagod on our part in any spirit
of oppression nor for any purpose
of conquest or subjugation, nor for
the puri08e of overthrowing or inter
fering with tho rights or established
institutions of those Statos, but to do-
fend and maintain tho supremacy of
the Constitution and preserve the
Union with all its dignity and' the
equality and rights of tho,. soveral
Statos unimpaired, and' that as these
objects are accomplished tho waT ought
Unitod States, on the 25th day o
July, 1801, adopted a resolution in the
Words following, viz (here follows the
sanio resolution :)
And uhereast These resolutions,
though not joint or concurrent in form,
uro substancially identical and as such
may be regarded as having expressed
the sense of Congress upon tho - sub
ject to which they relate ;
, And uluirsas, By my proclamation
on the 13th June. lant,'ue insurrec
tion in tho State of Tennessee was de
clared to have been suppressed, tho
authority of tho United States therein
to bo undisputed, and such United
Statos officers as has boon duly com
missioned to bo in the undisputod ex
erciso of their official functions ;
And tcltcrtas, There now exists no
organized armed resistance of mis
guided citizens or others to the author
ity of the Unitod Statos in the States
of Goorgia, South Curolina,' Virginia,
North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama,
Ixmisiano, Arkansas, Mississipi and
Florida, and tho laws can bo sustained
and enforced therein . 'by tho proper
civil authority, State or Federal, and
tho peoplo of the said States are well
and loyally disposed and havo con
formed or will conform in their legis
lation to the condition of affairs grow
ing out of tho amendment to the con
stitution of tho United States pro
hibiting slavery within tho limits and
jurisdiction of tho United States ;
And whereas, In view of tho before
recited premises, it is tho manifest do
termination of the American people
that no State, of its own will, has the
right or power. to go out of or separate
itself from, or be separated from the
American Union, and that therefore
each State ought to remain and con
stitute an integral part of tho United
States ;
And whereas, Tho peoplo of tho sev
eral beforo-mentionod States have, in
manner aforesaid, given satisfactory
evidence that they ucquioseo in this
eovereiim kul imiiorluut resolution ef
the national unity;
jimt whereas, It is believed to bo a
fundamental principle of tho Govern
ment, that tho peoplo who have re
volted, and who havo been overcomo
and subdued, must either be dealt
with so as to induce them voluntarily
to becomo friends; or clue they must
bo held by absolute military power or
devastated so as to prevent them from
ever again doing harm as enemies,
which last named policy is abhorrent
to humanity and freedom ;
And whereas, I ho Constitution of the
United States provides for constitu
tional communities only as States, and
not as Territories, dependencies, prov
inces or protectorates;
And whereas, Such constituent State
must necessarily bo and by the Con
stitution and laws ot tho United
States aro made equals and placed on
like footing as to political, rignts,
immunities, dignity and power with
the several States with which they
are united ; . t
And whereas, Tho observance of po
litical equality as a principle of right
and justico is well calculated to en
courage the people of tho aloresaid
States to be and to become more and
more constant and persevering in their
renewed allegiance ;
And wJierms, Standing armies, milli-
tary rulo, millitary occupation mar
tial law, millitary tribunals and sus
pensions of the writ of habeas corpus
are in timo of' peace dangerous to
public liberty, incompatiblq with the
individual rights of citizens, contrary
to tho genius and spirit of our free in
stitutions, and exhaustive of tho na
tional resources, and . ought not
therefore to bo sanctioned or allowed
except in cases of actual necessity, for
repelling invasion or suppressing in
surrection orrobellionj 1 1
And whereas, Tho policy of the Gov
ment of the United States from the
beginning of tho insurrection to its
final suppression has boon in conform
ity with tho principles herein set forth
and enumerated ; thoreJooro , .
I.Andrew Johnson, President of
the United States do hereby proclaim
and declare that tho insurection
-which heretofore existed in tho Statos
of Georgia, South Carolina, North
Carolina, Virginia, Tenneseo, Ala
bama, Louisaua, Arkansas, Mississip
pi and Florida is at an end, and hence

In testimony whereof, 1" have here
