[ \iiiY immiss. l*OHTLA TV 1>. Niuii ‘ny M* rt.'.ui',, December 24, 186G. i ll,- Wise Men ol i\oi ili Cnntlinii* Since the three wise men of Gotham start ed on their singular voyage ot discovery in a howl, no selt-appointed delegation of worthies has set forth upon its travels with a weightier -onse of the importance of its mission than oppressed the North Carolina deputation flourishing in Washington last week under ihe guidance and general supervision of Gov Worth. Chief-Justice Kufliiu, Ex-Gov. Swam and the Hon. Nathaniel Hoyden, who was l,om in Massachusetts and is heartily asham ed of it, made up the train,or as it is sometimes called the tall of Governor Worth. The Gov ernor called upon the President of the United States, with his tail. He recited the outrages . which have lately been perpetrated upon his . subject* in the old North State, and the tail , bristled in sympathetic horror. It ap|ieais - that Gen. Sickles lias got his military spurs tangled among the laws ol North Carolina, and has been kicking and breaking said laws in the most exasperating manner. Finding that the question involved some legal points, the President with admirable modesty refer red the party to the law officer of the govern ment. He had been an alderman in his na tive village, a member of the State Legislature, Ac., Ac.; his reasonable ambition had been glutted, so tospealy; hut he made no great professions as a lawyer, and would pre fer to have his friends call on Mr. Stanbery. The tail wagged acquiescence aud followed Gov. Worth into the presence of the Attorney Geueral. Then it was set forth with due cir cumstantiality, that the constitutional rights of North Carolina have been abridged, in that while it lias always been esteemed and regarded the especial privilege and prerogative of North Carolinians, as of other Southerners, to wallop their own niggers, Gen. Sickles has never theless interfered, instigated by the devil or Charles Sumner, and issued a military order abrogating that time-honored custom and for bidding all persons indulging in the practice even under color of law. Here’s tyranny!—r For the mischief is, or rather was, that Sick les with a strong hand aud sufficient force put ids own decree into very faithful execution, alter the stupid fashion ot military command ers. Very high-handed proceedings indeed, Mr. Attorney! Niggers absolutely spoiling tor a whipping, and no man can strike a blow! Whereupon the Governor’s tail fairly trem bled with emotion. Chief-Justice Kudin explained with the painful acuteness becoming his judicial pol silion, that Gen. Sickles had forbidden not merely flogging butf'eorpnral punishment”— the very words of his atrocious order. Now corporal punishment, according to the North Carolina law books, includes imprisonment aud hanging. To the mind of the Chief Jus tice it was quite plain, whatever meaning Gen. aii idea might attach to the words, that they were certain to work a geueral jail delivery, and that the edilyiug spectacle of a public hauling would be indefinitely postponed, to the great detriment aud positive injury of the rising generation. The worthy Judge seem ed impressed with the notion that, it would somehow become his duly to expound Gen. Sickles's order Irom the bench, unless the tlimg was overruled. Not to leave (lie internal Kad icals a single leg to stand on, < iov. Worth took pains to ex plain that 1 lie institution for which they came to intercede is Impartial Flogging. They whip not only men but women down there, and not only black men and women but whites. To this there could of course be no reply, and the Attorney-General at once re ported Jagainst Gen. Sickles's order, and the President “suspended its operation.” This, it will be seen, is a very different thing from rescinding the order, though the effect is nearly the same, it must be confessed; tor not only was Colonel lirumlord, commanding at Kaleigh, at once compel led to give up a negro to the civil au thorities, but Judge Fowler, who sits some whet e iu that neighborhood, decided to in dict all tin; military officers who had been thwai ling the laws by withholding the dark criminal and refusing to surrender him for tiagellation. It is satisfactory to know that tlm negro was promptly whipped the next day. i >ur excellent President has added an other laurel! to.liis wreath. The Puesidency in 1808.—Suggestiulis l>e ffin to multiply respecting the nominations for the next Presidential contest. Mr. Johnson perhaps regards himself as a candidate still; no body else does. Gen. Grant has been named repeatedly—perhaps too often. Gen. Butler, it is said, has nominated himself; but that nomi nation is not equivalent to an election. An East Tennessee paper puts np the name of Gen. Thomas, who was so handsomely receiv ed at Nashville the other day. A Kansas cor respondent of the St. Croix Courier says Mr. Haiuliu’s name would be a tower ol* strength iu the West, and the Oxford Democrat of the —1st iust. makes up an attractive ticket with Hamlin for President and Colfax for Vice President. We forgot to meution that Mr. Colfax has also been talked of for President.-^ If Mr. Hamlin should be nominated, Maine Which in 1856 elected him Governor by the heaviest majority ever known until Gen. Cham berlain l»eat it last fall, would lead off hand somely iu the election. Nevertheless we do not believe it is wise to bring liim forward yet. It is notoriously unsafe to bring a mail's name too early before the people. The chances are that the candidates on both sides will be men who are not now spoken of. The Argus still complains that we did not answer its question, and once more quotes our proposition and its interrogatory as follows: .Suppose that by writing and publishing, a man should, iu the language of Judge Story, ' disturb the public peaee, or attempt to sub vert the government."—tress. Yes, suppose that case. What then? What should be the punishment? (Jive us your own opinion, neighbor.—Argus. We once more invite the attention of the Ar gus to the fact that Judge Story meant to describe the crime ol treason by the italicised words, and to the further fact that there is no such crime kuowu to the laws of this country except in case of actual war. These element ary propositions the Argus calls “ridiculously leurued” and “irrelevant,” and to a writer capa ble ol assailing the constitutional definition of treason, appearing without quotation marks in a Radical newspaper, these necessary dis tinctions may appear far fetched. Neverthe less, by persistent hammering we hope to make even the Argus feel that there is a dif ference between declaring one's intention iu time of peace to disobey an unjust law and take the consequences, and lending aid and comfort by published words to an armed ene my in time of war. We answered the ques tion as it was put. The trouble with the Argus is that it does not yet understand that Judge Story’s italicised words mean treasonable writ ing and no other. Chaplain Glavu.—Tlie finding of file court martial ordered to try this geutlemau ou the charges Started by GeU« Stecdinan ami Ful lerton, is almost incredibly inconsistent. The Nation analyzes it as follows; It was charged (1) that he had an interest as partner in a plantation, on which he. employed tn.dmenwho were under his official care that be gave them (Government) rations; that he did not pay them equitably; (2) that he swore talsely that he had no other interest in the said plantation than a loan of money to its proprietors; (:j) that he sold to other than refu gees and treedmen “a large quantity of men’s and women's clothing, blankets, and shoes,” IK S. property, to the value of *100, for at least S2MJ, of which no account was made to the Government. Will it be believed that the, court decided that he hud a pecuniary interest in ttie plantation as alleged; that he did not swear talselyconcerning his interest in it; that ho gave the laborers rations (“guilty”) but_ then were not Government rations; that he did not pay the treedmen unfairly; that he did not «lis|)ose of men s or women’s clothing, or shoes but blankets only, and these, twenty-ei<»ht wort h not Woo, but WHO, and netting the chan lain not at least *200, but *42' Now, it comes witliin onv personal knowledge thd Hie said blankets were m-iiI over limn Kngland, with Co' mark “lb K.” by the friends ol' the treed itteti iu that eoliiitTV. to tie* Ameriean l'reetl iiiaii'a 17 iiion Commission! that tho Commission sent them to Chaplain Glivis to distrilmte er.itnitoii .lv or fo ■ s<.p*|ee. according to Ills best judgment; that he received in this way 1 sii (not ?4J), which had no more place in his accounts w ith the Government than the re eeipts of the Atlantic Cable, lmt which he duly paid over to the Commission, to whom it belonged. Nevertheless, the court found him guilty (of what?) on the first charge, not guil ty on the second, and guilty on the third, though the facts, as we have stated them, were vouch ed for to the court by the Commission. Til* chaplain has been dismissed the service. Liberal Voice* from Riirope. The New Yolk Loyal Publication Society has recently received a letter from the follow ing true-hearted Liberals of France who have, for several years, taken a deep interest in our national affairs, to wit: A. De Gasparin, Au gustus Cochin, Henri Martiu and Edward La boulaye. These patriots and lovers of liberty and equality the world over have watched the progress of events in our country during the last few years with an iuterest aud an emotion such as intelligent and whole-souled lovers of humanity alone can feel. A\re make the fol lowing extract from their letter to which we have above alluded: The necessity of putting au end to the negro question has assumed the eiiai actor oi a sell evident axiom. This necessity Mr. Johnson denies, or rather systematically forgets. Ho talks plausibly of being just to the South, but he forgets the duty oi being just to the men w'ho have shed their blood to suppress the re bellion of the South. He talks plausibly ol the equality ot the States, hut he lorgets the equality of men. Lie talks plausibly ot public liberties, hut he forgets personal liberties. He talks plausibly of peace, but he forget* that justice is the condition ol peace. He talics plausibly of the Union, hut ho forgets that the Union cannot bo re-established so long as the least vestige remains of the slavery question. How many irnitiui ipxih ior punuvtu -- tlie above extract would furnish! Every sen tence is lull of meaning. Mr. Johnson has covered up by “glittering generalities” the main points in the question, hut the people can and do see them in spite of all his plausibility. These Liberals well say, “To proclaim eman cipation and to deny equality is to take back with one hand what you gave with the other. - In the slave there is, first of all, a man. Free the slave and the man remains.” True, every word of it, and our government uiust treat him as a man, or the legitimate results of our recent war will never be attained, and at some future day the battle will have to be fought again. These lovers of liberty :ay that the lament ed Lincoln, at the time of his death, was pav ing the way for the return of the South with a general amnesty. “In a heart like his there was room for the rights of the negro by the side of the pardon of the whites." How admirably they describe the character of the martyred President! And they ftirther say he always walked iu harmony with Congress. He did so. No man ever watched the progress of public seulimeut more wisely than he. Believing in the moral instincts of the people he did no£ at tempt to lead hut to follow, lie had no pride in resisting the current of public opinion, but on the contrary lie was satisfied to float along with it, feeling all the time a strong confidence in the virtue and patriotism of the people — And he was right. But Mr. Johnson seems to care hut little for the opinion or sentiment of the people, especially when that opinion and sentiment run across the track of his stubborn will. It is somewhat remarkable tbat be scarcely alluded to the recent elections iu his late mes sage, thougli on his speech-making tour front Washington to Chicago he had much to say aliojjt the dear people, leaving the Consti tution with them, and confessing they were the legitimate source of all political power.— But since their voice has been heard through the ballot boxes be is dumb us a sheep before tiie shearer. Why is this sudden change?— Why ignore that voice now which hut a few weeks ago lie reverenced so highly? The an swers are at baud and no one can mistake them. These French lovers of republican principles understand the game Mr. Johnson is play ing quite as well as we do. They say the Democratic party seeks to make the South a lever against the North, thereby hoping to gain the ascendancy in the councils of the na tion. Mr. Johnson throws his weight upon this lever; but the North is too firm to he mov ed by such lubber lifting. The Democratic party lias made a very bad record during- the last few years and it cannot he rubbed out in this generation. Black lines have been drawn around it and many look :iud mourn over it as the grave of a once powerful Democratic party. Noble voices iudeed have reached _ us from France saving to us iu tones which cannot he mistaken: “Emancipation and Union arc in separable.” Let us heed those patriotic voices, and the dark clouds which now seem to hang over oui Kepublic will he dispersed and the star spangled banner will float around the world iu r-11 its former splendor and glory. Tlir Writ of IfabciiM t'orpua mad tlie Army. [From the Army ami Navy Journal.] Few commanding officers in the [Army or Navy have not, atler a lew years* service, been the unex pected recipients ot' a State court process directing them to produce before It the person ot some enlisted man in their commands alleged to be unlawfully de prived of his liberty. Sometimes tue petition will set forth a plea ol insanity at the time ot bis eulist men , or other cause, but more frequently th plea is the infancy of the recruit or Lis enlistment, without the par<-ntb’ consent. Officers as u rule have but little acquaintance with technical law procedures. The brevity 01 time with in which return must be made, usually precludes employment of counsel to defend the interests of the government, and it the State court assume the au thority to adjudicate, the recruit may be discharged and the government defrauded ol such bounty, pay, subsistence and allowances us have been advanced to him. Should, however, such process issue from a United Stub s court, government may always be rep resented by its district attorney. The fact that during many years the question •‘whether State courta have power to continue pro ceedings under them when issued, in catctH of detain er under the authority of the United States,” had been a subject iu the courts of grave discussion, ren dered it perplexing to llieollieer as to liis duty iu tlie promises. Should he refuse to obey, the eourt might attach him ibr contempt, and, pc#* contra, should he comply and surrender the inun to a possible dis charge, lie might be guilty of laches toward the gov ernment. It will not be uninteresting to glance at the state of the question as presented in several adjudications made at different periods. It is a singular circumstance that while such per sistent State Rights commonwealths ns South Caro lina and Georgia acknowledged the exclusive power of Federal courts to take coguizauce of applications for writs of habeas corpus in the eases of IT. S. sol diers and seamen, on tlie. other hand, the courts of Massachusetts and Pennsylvania always stoutly maintained their co-ordinate authority. As early as 17‘Jtf, (vide Johns: cas., vol. 1, Ip. 136), the question came before the New York Supremo Court, sitting in liank, upon tlie petition of Private Dusted, U. S. Army, for a habeas corpus, but it was refused on tlie grounds of want of jurisdiction. Tlie next case of Interest occurred in the Maryland Supreme Court in 1809 (vide 2d Hall's Haw Journal, 192,) where the writ was applied lor on behalf of Landsnutn Emanuel Roberts, on the ground that lie had been mazed and forcibly carried on board the U. S. ship of war then lying in Baltimore harbor. The naval officer made return that Roberts had volunta rily enlisted, and although proof was offered that he was only sixteen years old and druuk when enlisted, Chief Justice Nicholson declared the enlistment, to have been under tlie authority of the United Slates, and that Maryland had no right to interfere. During the war of 1812, Private Jeremiah Fergu son, Thirteenth U. S. inliiutiy, then commanded by Col. John Christie, sought the aid of the New York Supreme Court, to discharge him from his obliga tions as a soldier on the plea not only of being a mi nor anil under eighteen years of age, but of having enlisted without nis parents’ consent. The celebrat ed Chancellor Kent, then Chief Justice, wrote an elaborate argument denying tlie application (vide 9 Johnson's Rep., 239,) and taking the ground that as the enlistment was undercolor of tlie authority of i the United States, the Slate court had no jurisdic tion. This decision did not, however, prevent the same court., at a later day, from brietly ulllruling a contrary doctrine, and tor years it was the practice of judges to investigate applications and discharge from service. So long as the regular army aud navy remained in significant in numtiers, such cases were rare, and the national go venue ut interposed no objection to an officer’s acknowledging the writ. As a matter in pari materia it is worthy of obser vation that U.S. District courts have almost uni formly denied tlie right of any State court to compel the production of enlisted men on habeas corpus. In April, 1851, Judge Nelson,ot tlie U. 8. Supreme Court, in bis charge to the Grand Jury of the Soutli eru District ol New York, remarked on the power of State tribunals to inquire into the legality of a de tainer bv an officer of the general government. “The right to issue the process of habeas corpus,” he says “is not questioned, and it is the duty of the officer to whom it is directed to ol»ey the writ ‘by making a return.’ But when it is show n that the commitment or detainer is under the constitution ami law ot the Uni tod States, or a treaty, the power of the State is ut an end, and auy proceeding under the writ is coram non judtee and void, and under such circumstances it is the duty of the offic. r not to give up his prisoner or allow him to pass from his bands in any stage ot the proceedings.” A similar decision has been pronoun cal by Chief Justice Taney in the U. S. Supreme Court in the ccl brated case of Abelman vs. Booth. Recentiy the Michigan Court in re Spangler, (Am. Law Reg., Aug., 1813,) and the Supreme Court of New Jersey, (betore Judge Ogden, with concurrence his associates, Di e. lr*, 1R62), in the case of Private Michael Welch. Fourteenth N. y. Volunteers—a mi nor—reaffirmed the doctrine denying jurisdiction in the State courts. The present year has witnessed numerous decis ions in the New Y ork courts of similar tenor in i\ hirh Brevet Major General Daniel Buttevtleld Su perintendent of the General Recruiting Service! was the respondent. < lwing to the freqdenf recurrence of these processes the general prepared the following formal return to >t‘ made to each writ, and also, lor the information >1 the Slate court, a brief of the judicial decisions ou . fohich his action, is baaed, together with a digest from the opinions of the Judge Advocate General of the army: To fhe J/onurable.Judge oj.• • • # Slit1 luivc the honor to make return to the with in writ of balnas corpus, in the case of ...

I consulted an eminent physician in Boston without relief, and supposed 1 must always remain deaf, but about two years ago I applied to Dr. Carpenter; after the application of a course of his treatment, I could hear a watch tick 6 feet from either ear, ana my hearing remains perfect.
