Hwd there is some reason to expect that it will now be considered in a becoming ftnd friendly spirit. The importance of an early disposition of the question cannot be exaggerated. Whatever might bo the wishes of the two Govern ments, it is manifest that good-will and friendship between the two countries cannot be established until a reciprocity, in the practice of good faith and neu trality, shall be restored between the respective nations. On the 6th of June last, in violation of our neutrality laws, a military expe dition and enterprise against the Bri tish North American Colonies was pro jected and attempted to be carried on within the territory and jurisdiction of the United States. In obedience to the obligation imposed upon the Exe cutive by the Constitution, to see that the laws are faithfully executed, all citizens’were warned by proclamation, against "taking part in or aiding such unlawful proceedings, and the proper civil, military, and naval officers were di rected to take all necessary measures for the enforcement of the laws. The expedition failed, but it has not been without its painful consequences. Some of our citizens who, it was alleged, were engaged in the expedition were captured, and have been brought to trial, as for a capital offence, in the Province of Canada. Judgment and sentence of death have been pronounced against some, while others have been acquitted. Fully believing in the maxim of government, that severity of civil punishment for misguided persons who have engaged in revolutionary at tempts which have disastrously failed, is unsound and unwise, such represen tations have been made to the British Government, in behalf of the convicted persons, as, being sustained by an en lightened and humane judgment, will, it is hoped, induce in their cases an ex ercise of clemency, and a judicious amnesty to all who were engaged in the movement. Counsel has been employed by the Government to defend citizens of the United States on trial for capital offences in Canada; and a discontinuance of the prosecutions which were institu ted iu the courts of the United States against those who took part in the ex pedition, has been directed. I have regarded the expedition as not only political in its nature, but as also in a great measure foreign from the United States in its causes, character and objects. The attempt was under stood to be made in sympathy with an insurgent party in Ireland, and by striking at a British province on this continent, was designed to aid in obtain ing redress for political grievances which, it was assumed, the people of Ireland had suffered at the hands of the British Government during a per iod of several centuries. The person engaged in it were chiefly natives of that country, some of whom had, while others had not, become citizens of the United States under onr general laws of naturalization. Complaints of misgovernraent in Ire land continually engage the attention of the British nation, and so great an agitation is now prevailing in Ireland that the British Government had deem ed it necessary to suspend the writ of habeas corpus in that country. These circumstances must necessarily modify the opinion which we might otherwise have entertained in regard to an expe dition expressly prohibited by our neu trality la s. So long as those laws re main upon ourstatut J-books, they should he faithfully executed, and if they ope rate harshly, unjustly or oppressively, Congress alone can apply the remedy, by their modification or repeat ****** Peace is now prevailing everywhere in Europe, and the present seems to be a favorable time for an assertion by Congress of the principle, so long main tained by the Executive Department, that naturalization by one State fully exempts the native born subject of any other State from the performance of military service under any foreign Gov ernment, so long as he does not volun tarily renounce its rights and benefits. In the performance of a duty imposed upon mo by the Constitution, I have thus submitted to the representatives of the States and of the people such in formation of our domestic and foreign affairs as the public interests seem to require. Our Government is now un dergoing its most trying ordeal, and my earnest prayer Is that the peril may be successfully and finally passed, without impairing its original strength and symmetry. The interests of the nation are best to be promoted by the revival of frater nal relations, the complete obliteration of our past differences, and the reinau guration of all the pursuits of peace.— Directing our efforts to the early accom plishment of these great ends, let us endeavor to preserve harmony between the co-ordinate Departments of the Government, that each in its proper sphere may cordially co-operate with the other in securing the maintenance of the Constitution, the preservation of th 3 Union, and the perpetuity of our free institutions. Andrew Johnson. Washington, Dec. 3,1866. BQT'The talk about the death of the Democratic party is all gammon. The Northern Democratic vote is two mil- Hons, and the Southern Democratic vote is one million eight hundred thou sand—a total of three million eight hundred thousand—3,Boo,ooo. The Radical forces number only in the North two million four hundred thousand, and in the South one hundred thousand—a total of only two million and a half—2,- 500,000. The Democracy have, there fbre, a clear majority of one million three hundred thousand—l,3oo,ooo ! Talk about such a party dying, or adop ting “qualified negro suffrage” to keep alivb ! It’s all bosh. Democracy can’t die. Looking AFTER Land. —Within the past several weeks there have been large numbers of persons from Pennsylvania passing through this place on their way to the Shenandoah Valley, in search of homes. These persons mostly hailed from Lancaster county, in that State, and were generally men of means. — Ha gerstown Mail. THE DEMOCRATIC ADVOCATE. J THURSDAY, DECEMBER 13,1866. > .m - - - ’ POLITICS AID PREACHERS. A short time ago we heard a Preach | er, quite an able, man, (who, by the bye, does not reside in this County,) whilst - remembering the President of the Uni ! ted States in his prayers, on two occa sions, pray that such influences might be divinely imparted as to make him a . “man of sobriety, wisdom and justice.” - Now, we think it highly commendable > for the clergy to remember the Execu- I” tive of the nation in their prayers in the right spirit; but not in away that would t seem to suggest to the audience that 1 the slanderous reposts about our Chief > Magistrate are so true that the Almighty 1 should be publicly entreated to under [ take his reformation. Very probably i the preacher in question would think ' hard that any one should attribute to 1 him improper motives for habitually 5 praying for the President to be a sober , man; but we think, on reflection, he b ought to know that such a petition was 3 calculated to excite unpleasant feelings J among some of his hearers, and to con j firm what may be an unfounded susplc > ion in the minds of others. He should f know that this slander abont the Presi ’ dent has been industriously circulated by uncharitable opponents through the ’ public press and by every possible means, i Some weeks since, in the Radical pro l cession through the streets of Westmin ster, one of the most conspicuous objects [ was a caricature of the President—a i painting of a man just taking a glass of i whiskey, labelled “My Policy.” The 1 charge is false; and though political J opponents would like to believe his , speeches to be founded on intemperance or insanity, yet we know that he was only speaking forth the words of truth and soberness. The same preacher in his sermon pronounced it “an Infidel lie” to assert that he had not a right to meddle with politics in the Pulpit. Now this de pends on circumstances. If he meant that preachers ought to take sides in the pulpit, and advocate the claims of a particular political party to the preju dice" of their opponents, as is frequently done in the North, then we take issue with him. If he, or any other preacher should feel it their duty to advocate Radical principles in the sacred desk we should insist that the preachers who entertained opposite political sentiments should be equally free to ventilate their, political opinions iu the pulpit. In-such case the sacred desk would soon be no.- better than a political rostrum. If he meant, however, by the right to meddle with politics, the right to advocate great moral principles which apply equally to all parties, and which could not justly offend any of his parishioners by their partiality, then we agree with him, and trust he and all other preachers may always so interfere. We are not of the number who think hard of a preacher for entertaining po litical principles different from our own/ or of his expressing them privately in a proper manner. This as a man, and a citizen, he has a perfect right to do; and, as long as he does not attempt to use his sacred office to propagate them from the pulpit, or attempt to electioneer - for the candidates of his party, we think none should complain. We love to see . a preacher independent enonglito have political opinions, and to take interest enough to listen to public political dis cussions if he pleases, and to vote his , sentiments like others. This wc t.hink he can do, if disposed to act honestly * an d fairly in the matter, without incur r ring the censure of any reasonable man i of opposite sentiments. Of, political b preachers, however, who are fanatical 1 and dogmatical enough to attempt to t force their views upon their parishion ers, we have a very poor opinion. The i purity of religion, as well, as of politics, - would be best promoted by the discon tinuance of such practices. 3 A Division of Maryland. * The Radical papers of Allegany and ' Frederick Counties, Maryland, are ad i vocating the project of creating a new i State out of Frank Thomas's District, or 1 of joining the same to West Virginia, 1 so as to escape the Rebel dominion of the balance of the State. We decided ly object to this scheme, particularly to Carroll County being carried along m their secession. We hope it will not be 2 harder for them to endure the rule of . the Conservative majority in our Stata c than it is for the Secessionists down - South to omlurc Radical rule. Sorry t they feel so bad; but really we cannot e let them escape in that way. | Death or Col. John c. Ciroome* Col, John C. Groomc died at his rcs . idcuee in Klktoo, on Friday night last, j in the Goth year of his age. Col. Groome was an able and distinguished member ' of the legal profession, of very large t practice; and possessed the confidence and esteem of his fellow-citizens in an extraordinary degree. He was known s as a most earnest and sincere man, ® (hough genial, kindly and considerate, j not only within the walks of social and f professional life, but beyond it, to some i extent, io the sphere of politics. A young aristocrat lately lost $1,000,- 000 by gambling, in London. * ’ Mexico. There has been much talk about the improper interference in Mexican affairs by Gen. Sedgwick, commanding the.U. S. troops at Brownsville, Texas. He is said to have sent a small force across the Rio Grande, and occupied Meta- , moras temporarily. It is probable that Canales who occupied the town, which was besieged by Escopedo, commander of the Liberal forces, wished to surren der the place to the Americans, and hence the interference. He afterwards surrendered to Escopedo, and the U.S. troops recrosscd the river. No official report has been received. Our govern ment favors Juarez, the Liberal Presi dent of Mexico, against the empire of Maximilian, sustained by FranceN Gen. Ortega, who claims to be the lawful President against Juarez, who is hold ing over without a re-election, was ar rested by the U. 8. military authority at Galveston, Texas, on his way to Mex ico, and is still detained. It is not likely we will have any dif ficulty with France about the failure to evacuate Mexico as agreed on. The French forces being pressed by the Lib erals, it is not thought advisable to with draw their troops by detachments. Be sides, Napoleon can claim that we have not come up to our agreement not to interfere. Maximilian having conclu ded to abdicate, wc suppose the whole foreign army will be withdrawn by spring, and the poor Mexicans will be left to fight it out with one another, as it seems to be their fate never to agree. John 11. Surratt. John H. Surratt, one of the parties implicated in the assassination of Presi dent Lincoln, left Washington the day before it occurred, and made his way to Canada, when all trace of him was lost. He was discovered lately serving in the Papal Zouaves at Rome, where he was arrested at the instance of the American Minister; but made his es. cape from the guards. Ilegot off to Alex andria in Egypt where ho was arrested on his arrival, by order of the American Consul, and our Government info mod of it by telegraph. A national vessel has been sent for him. It is likely he will be tried before the Criminal Court of the District of Columbia. Foreign lews.

A warrant was lately" isstied by Uni- < ted States Commissioner Brooks, for i the arrest of Judge Daniel R. Magruder, i of the second judicial "circuit of Mary- * land, for violation of the act of Congress 1 known as the “Civil Rights bill,” upon 1 the following affidavit made before said j commissioner: On or about the 25th day of October, s 1866, a case came before Judge Daniel < R. Magruder, sitting as Judge of the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel county in which the plaintiff was a colored wo man, named Comfort Postley, and the defendant a white man, named Freytag. The suit was to recover the value of a calf. Wm. Tell Claude, Esq , attorney for the plaintiff, offered the said Com fort Postley as a witness in her own behalf, to which defendant’s counsel ob jected, and Judge Magruder refused to allow her testimony to be taken, on the ground that the laws of the State of Maryland did not allow a colored person to testify in a case in which one of the parties was white; and that the act of Congress, entitled “an act to protect all persons in the United States in their civil rights and furnish the means for their vindication,” was unconstitution al, and the testimony of said Comfort Postley was refused and not taken by him. Therefore, I, William L. Vanderlip, superintendent of freedmen’s affairs, de mand the arrest of the *:iid J udge Dan iel R. Magruder, for violation of the aforesaid act of Congress. (Signed,) Wm. L. Vanderlit, Brevet Major and Superintendent, &c. Subscribed and sworn to before me this Bth day of November, 1866. Isaac Brooks, Jr., U. S. Commissioner. As soon as Judge Magruder was noti fied of the issue of the warrant, he ap peared on Saturday last before Commis sioner Brooks, and waiving an examina tion entered his own recognizance for SI,OOO, to answer in the United States District Court at its December term. Judge Magruder, at the time of his decision against the constitutionality of the law, delivered an elaborate written opinion upon the subject; and be has stated it to be bis intention to take the case after trial before Judge Giles, to the Supremo Court of the United States for final adjudication. If so, this will be the first case under the law presen ted for appeal to that tribunal, when it will necessarily acquire a national im portance. Special Correspondence of the Hallo, Gazette. FROM WASHINGTON. Washington, Dec. 9th, 1866. I feel authorized to-day to give your readers some news of a very cheering character. The extreme measures of Mr Sumner, having in view the over throw of the existing State governments of the ten unrepresented States, and the other revolutionary scheme of igifbring their existence by act of Congress, in the matter of the Constitutional amend ment, have both failed to receive such support as to Justify even their presenta tion to the action of a caucus of either House , much less of a jtoint caucus of both. The “caucuses,” occasionally held here of late, have been much mis understood. ( The object of such meet ings in by-gone times was really, to initiate a programme of action—their proceedings were rarely at once divul ged. Those recently held have been little less exclusive than the sessions of Congress, and their doings have been published, to the most mioute particu lars, in the papers of the very next morning. They arc, of course, all very harmonious except when some unex pected event occurs, such as the intru sion of Mr.-Raymond. lam now able to say that, in verity, the meetings I al lude to, however named, partake in no proper sense of the nature of a caucus as heretofore understood—that secret conclaves of Radicals, or whose proceed

ings no account is designed to be pub lished are constantly held preparatory to a public call for such meetings—that in these midnight gatherings measures are proposed—discussed (often with bitterness), their strength canvassed, noses counted, and the question settled whether they can with, safety be submit ted to what is afterwards dubbed a “Congressional caucus.” In these se cret gatherings, I am assured upon relia ble authority, it has been ascertained that the extreme projects I have named and all those of a kindred character, cannot receive the sanction of the present Congress , and they have, therefore, been withheld from the aetion of the more open assemblies. I am sorry to add, however, upon like authority, that the class of bills and resolutions having in view the humiliation of the Executive will probably be successfully pressed through by party machinery, as, accor ding to my information, any measure passing the ordeal of the formal assem bly, miscalled the “caucus,” especially if the Republican Senators enter into it, is quit 3 sure of unanimity in Congress on the part of Republicans of all stripes. 1 also learn that in the same way the fate of Kelly’s bill, imposing universal negro suffrage upon this district, was decided. Modified as it has been, its final success is problematical, although it will certainly be passed by both. Houses, chiefly for the purpose of devol ving upon the President the responsi bility of its defeat. ■ A New Swindle.
