WORKISGS OF POLICY."
It is a well known fact that al the
close of the war therebels were ex-
pedant of some punishment for their
crime of rebellien, and their great
anxiety was to make it as light as po3-
eible. Many of the most intelligent
ones looked for nothing less than total
disfranchisement.and appeared to think j
they would be fortunate and the gov-
ernment extremely lenient if no worse
punishment was inflicted. Many of
them, a our soldiers can bear witness,
expressed themselves satisfied if they
were-only allowed to hold and accumu-1
late property in this country, without
the remotest expectation of ever again
having a voiee in the political control
of the government. Now we find
them demanding, as a right, an equal
voice with those who fought for the
salvation of the government; not only
in its future administration, but in de-
eidmg in regard to their own status in
the government. No; it is not an
equal voice they demand, but a control'
ingvoice. They demand.and President
Johnson says they shall have, an in-
creased representation in Congress as
a reward for their endeavors to destroy
the government. This demand has
been brought about by Presidential ac-
tion. The rebels knew too well that
the blacks of the South had done all
in their power to assist the Federal
forces, and .they knew also that the
faith of the government was pledged
to their freedom and the protection of
ih;r rioVita n frpfrnpn. Thev ex.
"'-" - o --
pected, as a matter of course, lhat the
pledges of the government were made
to these men in good faith, and that
they would be carried out. But when
they saw President Johnson's veto of
the Freedmens Bureau Bill and his
- denunciation o? the party that had ele-
began to think there waa yet some
chance for them to gam tbe victory, in
a political fild that they had lost on

to just lhe same, and a little greater
privilege! in the government than those
who fought on the other side were. It
was not to be expected that they would
refuse to press they demands for that
which was so plainly offered them by
the Executive. HeDce we find the
whole rebel force of the South, sec
onded by those in the North who were
on their side during the war, demand
ing that the precedent shall be estab
lished that treason is not a crime, and
that those who engage in war against
the government and fail shall be re-,
warded for their bravery in entering

A 'YTJHTE MAS'S"
The great cry of the Copperhead
Andy Johnson party is for a "white
man's" government. They make a
loud howl about "nigger suffrage,"
"nigger equality," and a hunderd oth-
er ..nifrf,erisms." calculated to excite
lbe passions and prejudices of men
wj!0 rj0 not stop to reason upon a meas-
ure when il is presented to them.
They are loud in their howls just now
about a "white man's" government,
aQd denounce the Union party as a
nirrorer party." Let us look for a
moment and see how the case stands
The Union party of the United States
propose, through their representatives
jn Congress, an Amendment to the
Constitution of the United Slates which
makes the voting population in every
State the basio for representation. The
Andy Johnson Democracy cry out
against this, and call us a "nigger par
ty." They want four millions of blacks
to be represented in Congress, but no
where else. They do not wish them
to have any voice in saying who shall
represent them or how they shall be
.represented, yet they demand, as a
right, (acquired by fighting the govern
ment) that these four millions of blacks
shall be represented in Congress by
white men whom they must not have
any voice in selecting. This would be
making "treason odious," indeed. Un-
der the old rule five slaves were counted
as three white men, and they were al
lowed representation in that proportion
Now lhat slavery is abolished, they de
mand as a reward for their treason
and rebellion against the government
that their representation be increased
and that, in the enumeration for rep
resentation, a negro must be counted
iust the same as a white man. "It is
a poor rule that won't work both ways;'
find if it is right that the black popula
tion of the South should be represent
ed in Congress, it is certainly right
that they should have a voice in saying
who should represent them and how
they would be represented!

choose the latter, cheers. Buyonen
and cannon, and above all, negro eman
cipation, can not cotiijuer a pern.anent
peace. His plan for a solution of these
difficulties was an armastice, and an
nrrangement for a joint convention, in
which to talk over and arrange all fam
ily ditlVrences. He was cenuin that
in Ohio the whole community wtre in
favor of peace.
"One reason why the Democrats
should support the candidate of the
Convention, whoever he might be. was
lhat they might search hsll ov?r and
they could not find a worse President
than Abraham Lincoln. When this
war was over he would not give a pinch
of snuff for the fi 20s and l0-40a now
hoarded by the rich."
The Chicago Times says cf the fol
lowing speech of Henry Clay Dean:
"His speech was one of peculiar bit
terness, abounding with stubborn, irre
sistible, incontrovertible facts. It im
parted enthusiasm to the audience, and
blistered the souls of the Republicans
who had the courage to listen to it to
He said : "In the presence of the
face of Camp Douglas and all the
satraps of Lincoln, that the American
people were ruled by felons. Lincoln
had never turned a dishonest man out
of office, or kept an honest man in.
A voice: 'What have you to say of
Jeff. Davis 1' I have nothing to say
about him. Lincoln is engaged in a
controversy with him, and I never in
terfere between black dogs.
Al this point in the speaker's re
marks an abolition rowdy shouted.
'Dry up, you old lory,' when there was
a cry of put him out.J
Mr. Dean resumed :
"For over three years Mr. Lincoln
had been calling for men and they
were given. But with all the vast ar
mies placed at his command, he had
failed ! failed ! ! failld ! ! ! FAIL
ED ! ! ! buch a failure had never
been known- Such dus-truction of hu
man life had never "keen known since
destruction of Sennacherib by the
breath of the Almighty. And still the
monster usurper wanted more men for
his slaughter pens. fLoud cries he
shan't have more. The careful husb
andman in deadening the forest was
always careful in preserving the young
growth of timber, and in selecting his
swine for the slaughter he preserves
the younger ones for future use. Bu
the tyrant nnd despot who ruled this
people to destruciion paid no regard lo
sex or condition, lie desired lo double
the widows and duplicate lhe orphans.
He blushed that such a felon should
occupy the highest place in the gift of
the. people. Perjury and larceny were
written over him as often as 'one dol
lar on the one dollar bills of the State
of Indiana. Cries of 'the old villain.'
The Democracy were for peace; the
people want peace, but the contractors
and army officers nnd satraps of the
Administration wanted it not. Great
applause Ever since the usurper,
traitor and tyrant had occupied the
Presidential chair, the Republican par
ty had shouted war to the knife and the
knife t the hilt. Blood had flowed in
torrents, ana yt-i mu inirst or tne mu
monster was not quenched. His cry
was for more blood.

We recommend a careful perusal of
the following, from the Chicago Jour
nal, lo "diver and sundry" people in
this region of country. It may put a
ittle different phase upon things, and
abate somewhat the interest taken by
some of our people in regard to who
will or who will not fall heir to certain
official positions :
It will be recollected that an effort
was made to work through Congress a
aw forbidding the payment of the sal
ary of any person appointed to ofuce
durinc the recess of the Senate to fill
any office vacant while the Senate was
in session, llut the eiiort taueu. .no
such bill was pasted. It was generally
t-upposed that its movers taw how fool
ish and futile such a but would be ana
therefore dropped it. Whether it was
dropped for lhai reason or not is uncer
tain. But precisely such a law has
been on the statute books for three
years as will be seen by the following
from the New York Times:

Appropriation bill, approved February
9, 1863, which seems to have been en
tirely overlooked heretofore in the De
partments, and, singularly enough was
never referred to in the recent aecaie
in Congress on the proposition to reg
u!ate and restrict lhe appointing power
of the President. This law has been
brought to the uotice'of the President,
and of course will govern him In cases
to which ii is applicable Section two

Sec. 2. That no money 4-hall be paid
from the Treasury of the United Slates
lo any person acting or assuming to
act as an officer, civil, military or naval
as salary in any office, which office is
not authorized by sume previously ex
isting lajgi unless when such office
shall be subsequently sanctioned by
'aw. Nor shall any money be paid out
i the Treasury as ahry lo any per
son appointed during the recess of the
Senate to nil a vancancy in any exist
ing office, which vacancy exited while
ihe Senate was in session, and is by
law required to be filled, by and with
ihe advice and consent of the benaie
until such appointee shall have been
confirmed by the Senate.
