i>< )!{tland. Wednesday Moniiug, December 19,1866 Kim-o umI r ii r I iou. Mr. Johnson'sex|>eriment lias failed. After a trial of nearly two years, it lias proved worse than useless. From Texas to North Carolina the leaders in the late rebellion fill all the local offices, elect one another to t mi gress and manage to control all the public sent i inent which as yet has been able to make itscit heard. Congress offered to these people the mildest possible terms-tenns so mild that we need continually to repeat them, to assure ourselves that these were indeed all. These Suites were required to guarantee equal civil lights to all American citizens, to consent to a just apportionment of representation in Con gress, to declare perjured traitors unworthy of official position, to repudiate the rebel debt, and to affirm the validity of the national debt. Such are the terms which Mr. Johnson s ex perimental legislatures have rejected, foolishly believing once more the assurances ot the Northern Demociatic press, and expecting to create a "dead4ock” which wrould enable . them to make their own terms. But the North will not consent to a dead lock. As it becomes evident that the South ern States, as now organized, ate determined to reject an oifet sy considerate, so charitable, higher and higher rises the popular demand for a new and more vigorous policy, initiated this time by the chosen representatives of the people and the States. We have tried long enough the experiment of pleasing our late enemies; now, In Heaven’s name, let us try to do right, whether they are pleased or not. We print in another column the very im portant hill introduced in the House of Rep resentatives last week by Mr. Elevens, to re establish civil government in North Carolina, it was proper to begin with the State in which the President's experiment begau.— Air. Stevens stated that the bill was ottered at the request of several citizens of North Carolina, and the telegraph informs us that Uov. Holden and others have expressed their satisfaction with its provisions and have gone home to prepare the public mind to co-operate with Congress in bringing about a final set tlement upon this new basis. The bill does not undertake to establish any theory of .■state-suicide. It is a practical measure and simply declares the tact that in 18<i& North Carolina had no government organized ac cording to the requirements of the Constitu tion of the United States. No such govern ment has since been organized. The proceed ings under the direction of the President have been purely experimental; they still lack and in some important particulars will probably never receive the sanction of Congress. 'Hie present civil government of the State is mere ly provisional. With this brief recital of tacts m the pream ble, the^bill passes to enact that a convention shall assemble to frameaState constitution, as the first step towards reorganization; that the delegates to the convention shall be such per sons only as were entitled to the amnesty of lered by President Lincoln's proclamation of December 8,1868; and that the electors of these delegates shall be all male resident citi zens over twenty-one years ot age, who can read or write, or own real estate assessed at one hundred dollars or over, without distinc tion of race or color. It is provided that no one who has heretofore exer cised the right of voting in North Car olina shall be disfranchised for lack ot these qualification, and it is to be hoped that Congress will strike out the property qualification altogether. The intelligence in Pennsylvania. It is diltieult to conceive ot any objection which can be made to this scheme. The President's experiment has resulted in a dead lock, and something else must be tried._ Democrats who have just been voting lor a negro for councilman in Boston cannot rea sonably object to a negro voting in North Car olina. It is not ignorant suffrage but im partial suffrage, which is proposed. Distin guished citizens of the State most interested are ready to lend their influence to the meas ure. The only plausible objection would be, that fbe execution of such a law may be ob structed by violence. Ah! shall we hesitate to do right then, for feat- that somebody may do wrong ? Let us have done with this palter ing! The remedy is easy; it has been urged a hundred time3 by a Southern journal. The very last number ot the New Oi leans Tribune, which has come to hand, urges again the or ganization ot a loyal militia throughout the South. The material is there, and if the oc casion should demand its use, we trust Con gress will not hesitate to use it. A Bill I o inn he Polities .% (tractive* We have been intending, whenever Mr. Dawes’s bill to fix the time for the election of Representatives and Delegates to Congress sfcould he reported by the Committee of Elec tions, in whose hands it now lies, to call atten tion to its merits and express our sincere hope that it may become a law. With equal sur prise and pleasure, however, we find ourselves anticipated by the Argus. Our neighbor is really enthusiastic in hi3 admiration for this particular bit of Radical legislation; and we are certainly gratified to be able to quote an article from the Argus which needs no con tradiction. Here goes: Mr. Dawes has introduced an excellent prop osition, providing that Congressional elections shall be held on the same day throughout the country. Congress has clearly the ypwer to regulate this matter, and the neglect to fix a day has sometimes proved an embarrassing evil, lu 1861 Congress adjourned without giv ing the President authority to raise a single regiment of troops to suppress the rebellion -— President Buchanan pointed out this lack of authority, but Congress heeded it not and spent the whole session without making any provision of the kind. The succeeding Con gress was only partly elected and President Lincoln found hinisel! compelled to call for an army of 75,000 men without the slightest show of authority under existing laws. Con gress, it is true, covered the case with a heal ing act in the duly following, and we refer to the matter only to show that Congress should provide for the election of oue Congress before lhe previous one expires by limitation. Had such been lire case in 1861, President Lincoln would at once have called an extra session to supply the legislation needed and which the previous Congress had criminally neglected to enact. And not only should the election precede the expiration of the previous Congress, hut it will prove highly advantageous to have it in all the States on the same day;and the dav suinrest ed by Mr. Dawes we think the best one viz the Tuesday after the first Monday in Novem ber, that being the day of the Presidential election every fourth year, it this date is fix ed for the Congressional elections, the State elections will he made to conform to it and thus political struggles will lie decided on the same day all over the country. The great advan tage of this will be that the whole year will not be taken up with political campaigning.— lliere will be but one campaign a year, and very soon but one in two years, we think, which will leave business less disturbed and will tend to cure that nausea of politics with which so many of our bestcitizens arc natural ly but unfortunately afflicted. They get sick j of constantly hearing about elections and con sequently pay little attention to them to the detriment of Hie best interests of the country They are the very men who should take an in terest in them, who should make their influ ence felt: and if hut a month or six weeks each year, or bettor still, every second year, were devoted to clectiort campaigns, wc believe they would do it to a far greater extent than now. AVe behove nlso, that the business interests of the country would lie subserved in large decree by such an arrangement, while there can be no doubt that there is really an urgent and im portant necessity for the seasonable election of cacn Congress before its predecessor ceases bv limitation. \Ve therefore, thank Mr. Dawes for moving u, this matter and we trust that Ins associates wifi not only excuse this mo mentary forgetfulness 0n his part of the dear negro, &c.. &c. The rest is immaterial. Latest Decree of Fashion.-The “ Km |'ire 'style of hair dressing is becoming unite popular, notwithstanding no time of year could he more unfavorable than this for it. It is suit abK- only for summer, but eves became accus tomed to it then, aiul so it continues, uotwitii- , ((.Hiding its evident inpuitablefless lei tins Season, t'l'bo l.air d<#sers/ do It very etofco- ; lately, and with au astonishing degree of in tricacy, and call each style by some special name * but the Empire proper is simple enough; any lady can do it herself. It consists in'pre paring the hair across the head at about the middle, and rolling the back into a loose ooil at rather a high angle of the head; the tront is also divided crosswise into two parts, each roll ed over a bandeau of silk or velvet, which may or may not be studded with steel or jet stars. Civil 44ovvrl»lllcnl in North 4'uroliuu. The following are the material sections of tlie hill introduced in tile House of Represent atives last week by Mr. Stevens, of Pennsylva nia, to enable the State of North Carolina to re sume its former relations to the United States: * Wltereas, On the -’Oth day of May, 18(51, the citizens ol North Carolina, one ol the United States of America, did rebel against the gov ernment of tlie United States, and on the Altli day of May and thereafter, did violently set aside and destroy the organized eonstituti^ial government of tn- said States, and did engage with others in armed hostility and wartare to maintain their said action; and Whereas, After the lapse of more than four years the United States, by force of arms, having succeeded in quelling said rebellion and disarming such insurgent citizens, did find in said district formerly comprising the State of North Carolina, no government organized or officers qualified according to the requirements of the Constitution of the United States; and Whereas, The President of the United States, by virtue of his power as Commander in-Chief of the Army and Navy, under the op eration of martial law for the purpose of pre serving peace and order, and of relieving his subordinate military officers from executing de tails of civil regulations in the several and widely separated localities in the district did, under forms’and rules by him prescribed, au thorize certain citizens of the district to assume the execution of said purpose of preserving peace and order under the protection and sanc tion of the military authority; and HTiereus, It is the duty oi the Cougress ot the United States to preserve the said District, and the loyal citizens thereof as one of the United States, and by law to cause tube organ ized therein a government republican in form, based ou the civil and law-making power of the nation; therefore, lie it enacted, etc., That ou the 20th day of May, 1807, at the hour of 12 o’clock, meridian, there shall assemble at the State House, in the city of Raleigh, a Convention of the loyal citi zens ot the district tormerly comprising the State of North Carolina, composed of 120 dele gates, to be chosen by voters qualified as herein after provided; and each County in said Dis trict shall be entitled to send to said Conven tion the same number of delegates that it was entitled to send members to tne House of Com mons of the State of North Carolina prior to the 20th day of May, 1861; aud a majority of the delegates elected to said Convention shall constitute a quorum, and be invested with the sovereign power of the people of the Dis trict to frame a State Constitution, which shall be submitted to the Congress of the United States for approval, modification or rejection, as preparatory to the re-establishment of the said State and the reinvesting of loyal citizens with all the rights,privileges aud immunities ap pertaining to the the citizens of the other States of the U nion; and the said Convention shall have power and authority to do all other acts which by the recognized principles of republi can government sovereign conventions of the I people of the States may of right do; provided that in ease no quorum shall assemble on the said 20tli day of May, any less number of dele gates assembled may adjourn from day to day until such time as a quorum may assemble tor 1 the transaction ol business. Second—That, in the election of delegates to said Convention there shall he allowed to vote all male resident citizens of the District form erly comprising the State ol North Carolina, of the age ot twenty-one years, without distinc tion of race or color, wno can read or write, or may own in fee real estate of the value of jtlOO, or more; Provided, That no one who has here tofore exercised the right of suffrage in said District shall be disqualified from voting in said election. Third—That the qualification for the delegates to the said Convention shall be the same as required tor members of the House of Com mons of the State of North Carolina, immedi ately previous to .the 20th of May, 1861, upon i the taking and subscribing, before the Judge of the District Court of the U nited States tor the I District ot North Caroliua, or some other offic er of the United States authorized to adminis ter oaths, the following oath, to nit: I <lo solemnly swear oil the Holy Evangelists of Al mighty Ood (or atiirm as the ease uiay he,) that on ihe fourth day of March, 1804, aud at ad times there after, 1 would willingly have complied with the re quirements of the Proclamation of the President of the L nited States issued ou the eighth day ot Decem ber, 186:1, hail a sate opportunity of doing so been af forded me. That on the said lom'lh day of March, 1801, aud at all times thereafter 1 was opposed to the continuation of the Rebellion and to the establlsh meut of the so-called Lonlederate Uoverumeut, aud f" me ..I,, , „ giiij or I'Hwrtii^w-ut thereto mime.it of the Lnitel Stares,-wt.nt tin' 1'irou forth faithfully support the Lousiitutiou of tlie Lm ted States, aud tne Union of States thereunder. And no person shall be allowed to sit or act .as a delegate in said Convention, or hold any office or under-appointment thereunder, until he shall have taken and subscribed the above oath in the manner aud lorm as above provid ed. The next three sections provide the requisite machinery to make the law operative. Seventh—That the present organization set up under martial law by the military power of the President, aud all officers in said district charged with the execution of civil regulations therein, except the regular officers of the Unit ed .States, shall esase to be such, and their functions aud powers shall terminate at such time as may be provided by the said Conven tion after the recognition an.l approval by Con gress of the State Constitution and civil gov ernment provided for and sought to be estab lished under this act. Viyli111 -That the President of the United States is hereby authorized, aud it shall be his duty so to dispose and employ the military and naval forces of the United Slates, from time to time, andj in such places, as to enforce the prompt and efficient execution ol the provis ions of this act; and to preserve peace and or der, and obedience to the laws of the United States in the district formerly comprising the State of North Carolina. The bill was referred to the Committee on Territories, of which Mr. Ashley of Ohio is is chairman, and Mr. Rice of Maine a lead ing member. Norser'se.—The Argus quotes liberally from a recent article in the Press, respecting the de cliue in ship-building, and then proceeds to talk about ‘‘the Radical policy of protecting and fostering class interests by an enormously high tariff'and an irredeemable paper curren cy. and of visiting vengeance and consequent poverty and suffering upon one third of the Republic.” The present tariff of duties is a necessary complement of the internal revenue law. The paper currency was the necessary resort of a country struggling for existence.— The Republican party demands of the South no penalty, but security for the future. The origin and occasion of all the evils which beset us are to be found in the aristocratic discontent of our Southern gentry with democratic insti tutions aud in the snobbish servility of North ern Democrats, acting as a direct stimulus and invitation to rebellion. The Republican party has put down the Democratic rebellion, and is aow preparing tc remedy its attendant evils. Admiral Kkmhks is about to lecture on Ids own exploits, and upon the “international law" bearing on them, at Galvesron, Texas. We have indulged in some pleasantry about this personage, but he is really becoming too seri ous to joke about. We submit, in all gravity for the consideration of Congress, whether there be not some truth in the suggestion of a writer in the New York Times a few days ago that the spectacle of Semmes parading tlie’ country uuwhipyed of justice, and teaching “moral and political philosophy to the youth of the South, is an unpleasant and damaging commentary upon the diplomatic attitude we have assumed in London, if the Alabama was a pirate ship, and the British Government lie liable for all damage done by her, Semmes was a buccaneer, and deserves legal punishment.— If, as Mr. Johnson lias been pleased to hold, he is exempt from punishment by reason of the parole which,he gave, and which ought never to have been accepted, then we ask that he re ceive the treatment of a paroled prisoner, and lie at least condemned to silence until our claims with Great Britain are settled.— We may add that there can be no question that the impunity accorded to worthies like this ad min! increases every day the difficulties in the wayoi settling the South. What Southerner can believe in the earnestness or determina non ot a government which permits unpar iloned traitors to parade the country, justify-* ing their exp oits on high moral grounds’ Semmes is clearly an irrepressible dunder head of the Cornell Jewett and George Fran cis Train order, who has lost liis reckoning and is wandering about in utter ignorance of all his bearings, both moral, social and political and it would be a kindness to him to relegate him to his home and the cultivation of some harmless vegetable— The Nation. WEmm's Last Thouc.itt Waltz.—A laugh- | able incident lately happened to Mr. Weber, | the popular piano-forte manufacturer of New ' York: A blooming young miss of about sixteen, ev- ! idently from the rural districts, called upon I him at Ins warerooms, and alter many blushing apologies for the liberty she was about to take I begged that he would gratify her no much as to ! play his last favorite waltz sitting down at one of his pianos, he pluved ‘ in his best manner the favorite waltz of theim- 1 mortal composer of “Der Freischutz.” At tho i conclusion he added a little variation of his I own. When he had finished she thanked him. i observing that she had never heard that part 1 of it before, and that she admin d it very much. The fair creature then departed to tell all her triemls that she had heard the great composer play ins favorite waltz. He tells the joke^ay i ng, ‘*So much for a name.” SPECIAL NOTICES.
