imillian's Government will not stand
iong after he attempts to subjugate a
Tew hundred thousand of our old vete
rans. Recruiting officers for emi
grants have been opened in the Eas
tern cities, and it is said that the west
has offered to furnish large sums of
money, besides 2C0.C00 men to be
placed under direction of Gen. Rose
crans. The French rulers undoubtedly fore
saw that the vindication of our cause
and the suppression of the rebellion,
would be the signal for other tations
to revolt against Monarchical rule, and
they have ventured the trial of estab
lishing a Monarchy up oa our own Con
tinent for the purpose of testing the
thing hoping that, should they fail in
Mexico, the tide of progress might
ihere be checked. But "Mr. Crapeau,"'
it wont win. The little concern in
Mexico is about played out; aud Truth,
Liberty and Progress are now the or
der of the day.
fT'In regard to the treatment cf

Tlie Poisoning of Andrew
Jul) 11 sou.
There can be but little doubt left in
the minds of those who attentively pe
rused the details of the plot to assassi
nate the leaders of the Government,
that Andrew Johnson, who has endured
so much undeserved obloquy for his
singular aberration on the Fourth of
March, was on that occasion under the
influence, not either cf a mere distur
bing drug, intended only to disfigure
him, but of a deadly poison, furtively
insinuated in his drink with the view
to take his life. It is in proof that the
assassinations were to have been per
petrated on the 4th of March, and that
tfooih. (he chief assassin, had posted
himself in a position where Mr. Lin
coln must pass closely by, and it was
doubtlessly expecttd that about the
time when the President should have
perished by the pistol, the new Vice
President would have expired iri the
Capitol from the effects of the potion
he had taken. Probably this view of
the matter has never struck the mind
of Mr. Johnson; and it is not to be sup
posed that under the mystery of that
strange occurrence, which must have
puzzled him more than anybody else,
he would care to allude to the affair
with any attempts at explanation thai
might have been misunderstood. The
disclosure of the instructions distribu
ted among the assassins, that "they
were at liberty to use the blade, the
pistol or the bowl, but they must bear
in mind the taller had once failed,"
seems to be conclusive on this poinl,
and will doubtless suggest some impor
tant recollections to the Presidem's
mind. His powerful nature triumphed
over the infernal draught, and thu, in
addition to an invaluable lite being
saved to the nation, we are gratified in
the conviction that one who has always
been a sober, self-respecting statesman
is new providentially relieved from
even a passing cloud on his career.
jKsF-Chief Justice Chase, while in
North Carolina, stated that, "the Ad
ministration would continue military
rule in the rebellious States until they
were thoroughly reconciled to imme

the Government." General Schofield
refused to allow Governor Vance to
resume his function as Governor of
North Carolina, and declined to accede
to the request of prominent citizens of
that State to be permitted to visit
Washington for the purpose of endeav
oring to secure the retention of the
rebel State Government. A corres

Tlic !Vev Stamp licgiilation.
A new Internal Revenue regulation
relating to stamps, went into ellect on
the 1st of April, and we deem it pru
to call attention to its provisions. The
new law repeals all of Section 153 of
the Act of last year, and provides for a
fine of SoO on every person who, with
intent to defraud the revenue, "shall
make sign, or issue any instrument,
document, paper of any kind or de
scription whatsoever, or shall accept,
negotiate or pay any draft, order or
promissory note, without being duly
stamped," etc., and it further provides
that such instrument, document, paper,
bill, draft, order tr note, shall be inva
lid, and of no effect; but it also provides
that the defect in any such instrument,
etc., hereafter issued, or issued since
August 1st, 1S6-1, may be remedied by
the maker, or any party having an in
terest in it, by applying to the Collector
of Revenue for the District, paying him
the stamp tax and the S50fine, where
upon he shall stamp the instruments,
etc., and certify on its fact. The Col
lector may, in his discretion, remit the
fine upon a proper showing that the
omission was a mistake, acciuent, mad
vertence or inevitable necessity, pro
vided the application be made within
twelve months from the issue of the
paper, and that no intent existed to
evade payment of the stamp duty or
defraud the Government. Such pa
pers issued prior to the 1st of August
15b 1, can by the provisions of section
1G3, be stamped now, "in presence of
the Court. Register or Recorder." As
we said before, this new provision
went into effect on the 1st of April,

If there is anything that Jefferson
Davis believed impossible, it was that
he could ever look absurd. He may
have feared disaster, and anticipated
flight; but he intended to be a. collect
ed, chivalric fugitive, inflexible in hope
and courage, and maintaining, before
the world, a spectacle of august mis
fortune. We doubt if he will dread
hanging half as much as he will the
inevitable cuts representing his emaci
ated form in female attire, his boots
twinkling under the flapping garments,
as he flounders and grasp through
forests and over, fields. The history
of our great civil war already crowded
with strange deeds and novel achieve
ments, is redered quite unique by this
grotesque capture. Jeff Davis as the

A Notable Fact. The late con
flagration in Richmond developed a
curious incident and fact, which may
be valuable if remembered. 'Some
week or ten days after the fire, the
iron safe of the Enqvircr office was
opened, when, immediately on the
admission of the air, the books and
papers were consumed. And such
was the case of all other safes which
were not in brick vaults. In these the
contents were uninjured. The En
