Tbe pertinsnt resolution of Senator
Ferry, adopted last week in the Sen-
'ate, will decide an interesting legal
point,' now at issue between Congress
1 and the preaent incumberauce ' at the
White House. This resolution requires
the President to' state the authority un-
' der which his late Amnesty Proclama
tion was issued, and will bring the
whole nuestion 'up. An Autocrat can
thwart the will of the people; but if the
people's representaiWes haye the pow
er, under the Constitution, to make
laws gorerning the extent of this au
thority, then hai President Johnson
exceeded his duties in issuing his late
indiscriminate pardon. We hope the
discussion of this question will be with
out acrimony; and that in any event
the truth in lawepirit and letter, will
be evolved. . .,
From readin? : Mr. Washburn s
peecbJ delivered in the House of Rep
resentatives on the 6:h inst., we feel
safe in asserting that he has saunde J

Would you trust to unskilled hands

They are to live in the future. Will

Geologists study fossil remains with

Second, the poor man will have to

I confidently assert that there are more

than six head of cattle than there are
that own more. If such assertion, b
true, it will require four acres per head

average of land owners, from twenty
to twenty-five acres under cultivation

to feed through the winter; if fed in

Old setters living on the streams and
near groves that were fortunate enough
to secure timber for their fuel and fen
cing for a few years, seem to forget
that this portion of Goti's footstool was
intended for oihers as well ns them
selvess. They have, or at least the
majority have, built something' they
call a fence, to protect themselves from
the devastation of stock, and what they
lack in fence thay make up in dogs.
They get all the stock ihey can and
herd them back onto the new seller;
and when the new seller demurs, the
reply is, make a better fence; and sev
en to ten the new setter has the best
fence, but lacking the dog, his grain is
destroyed"."' Even the fortunate fe
are fast approaching their last fence.
yet they hold out, hoping to secure a
well filled pocket by the time lumber is
shipped here from Alaska. I have in
quired of old sellers what we should do
for timber? Tne reply was. I have
timber to last a few years. But I ask
where will those new sellers get iheir
timber? Reply, they will have to give
up their land; this they would certainly
have to do, were they compelled to
fence. I, for one, have long since
considered that fencing our plow land,
was the -relic of ancient barbarity.
