The attention of the Public is called to the “New Features” of Life Insurance as made by the above Company. [See “Circular.”] It is a new Compauy on a new plan. This Compa ny wUl not allow any policy to lapse or be forfeited. Its Policies are incontestibie alter death. It wtll insure any one. Ordinary and inferior or impaired lives are the very ones that most noed as surance. It will iusure better than Ordinary lives by rating younger, thereby lowering the Premium. It health is impaired the Company will insure by rating older, thus raising the Premium. How long is he to live? is the important question. It insures on the 5, 10 or 20 equal payment plan, Mid at any time will give a “paid-up Policy ibr what his payments justly entitle him.” This Company will allow the assured to pay week ly, monthly, quarterly, or annually. It does not restrict those insured at ordinav rates, either in travel or in residence. It issues Endowment Policies “ in which the assur ed will, in addition, share in all the Premiums paid by shorter lives.” It is a cash Company, but will insure on the Part or all Note plan, if the party understands its effect* and prefers it, and will pay the insured what ever Dividend he request*, if the Piomlum is made sufficiently large. It Issues Annuities and Assurance on Joint Lives. Clergymen and Teachers assured at net cost. Agents and Solicitors Wanted. Call or send for “ Circular.” WM. G.

Tenure nf Office. We had supposed that the object of the va rious bills before Congress to restrict the Pres ident’s power of removal from office was sut ficieutiy understood; we had hoped that Con gress needed no further urging to proceed with this greatly needed reform. There is danger that in seekine to punish the present Executive, Congress may neglect to purify the Executive office; it is evident that in some quarters at least the scope of the proposed measures is not clearly apprehended. The power of arbitrary removal from office is not conferred upon the President by the constitution. It was granted by law, not di rectly but by implication, by the first Con gress. Notwithstanding the unlimited confi dence reposed in Washington, this power was conceded to him by but a small nuyority of the House and by the casting vote of the Vice President in the Senate. Madison, who favor ed the law, declared that If any President should arbitrarily exercise the power entrust ed to him, he would do so at the risk of im peachment. Until Jackson’s time no officer of the government was removed save for cause. In Jackson’s lime and after, the whole matter was reviewed. Statesmen who agreed in nothing else have uniformly agreed in declaring the system introduced by Jack son to be without warrant in the constitution or in express legislation, destructive to the in terests of the civil service, and dangerous to the country. Webster and Calhoun, Clay and Benton, are on record against this shameful malpractice. Add the names of Story and Marshall from the bench, and we have the representative men of the different parties and of the Legislative and Judicial departments of the government. Yet we read in a newspaper the other day, in a brief discussion of this subject, that “no fault has ever before been discovered in our system”—meaning the practice since Jackson’s time. On the contrary, fault has always been found with it. Not only our leading states men but a great minority of thoughtful Amer icans have telt that the transformation of the civil service into a political make-weight has been a national disgrace and a source of pub lic danger. No other civilized government chooses to place its official salaries on the foot ing of pensions to partizans. Office-seeking degrades our politics and corrupts our citizens to an extent as alarming as it is disgusting. Office-holders ought to be the servants of the whole people and not of a party. They were in the early days of the government. Holding their own opinions and voting as they chose they refrained from enterin; actively into pol itics. Subject to removal in the practice of those days, for cause only, Uke officers of the army and navy, they regarded themselves as belonging to the country, and not as belong ing to the man who'for the time happened to occupy the Presidential chair. The propositions now before Congress look to a return to Ihe earlier and better practice in this respect. It is unquestionably in the power of-Congress to compel such a return, by enacting that hereafter tbe President shall remove no officer in the civil service except for misconduct or Incapacity, and shall report the cause to the Senate, which as it confirms his appointments ought also to confirm his removals. This is a great, a necessary, a per manent reform; yet tbe article from which we have already quoted speaks of it as “tem porizing legislation.” it is necessary to the successful administra tion of affairs so various and complicated, to employ trained and skilful officers. Our di plomatic service, for example, suffers for want of subordinate officers trained to the duties of the service. Diplomacy is in ether countries a profession, to which men are regularly bred. Whether a man’s Inclinations are conserva tive or progressive, whether he acts with one party or another, ought to have no more to do with his service to the government than with bis service to individuals. Our office-holders ought to learn again, what many of them have forgotten, that tney are employed as public servants and not to govern this people. It is not a partisan advantage which is sought, but a purification of the political at mosphere, and the permanent benefit of the civil service. If anybody chooses to urge the cowardly argument that we cannot carry the elections without the aid of bribery of this sort, it is sufficient to remind him that we carried the elections last fall by overwhelm ing minorities in spite of Executive patronage. The President’* I.asl Kildrl. The veto message has not made even a rip ple on the tide of affairs at Washington. Ev erybody knew beforehand that he would veto any measure tending to ameliorate the condi tion of the blacks, in the District or elsewhere. Most people supposed he would “Improve" the occasion by lecturing Congress—and he did. Congress bore It very well, though Senator Johnson of Maryland expressed the opinion that the lecture would better have been omit ted. The Senate composedly passed the bill by a vote of 29 to 10. The House took it up next day and passed it by a vote of 113 to 38. So the bill became a law notwithstanding the President’s objections. As a sensational effort the message was a failure. Not to be baffled In this way, the President adopted a new device. Remembering how Jackson’s famous toast electrified the country in Nullification times, Mr. Johnson decided to electrify the country by a similar expedient.— Anybody who cares to see how far Andrew Johnson sinks below Andrew Jackson will find in his late eHbrt, at the festival in com memoration of the battle of New Orleans, an exact measure of that distance. Consider (he circumstances. Jackson had held his peace while the nullification plot was ripening. His first public utterance tell like a red hot shot into the enemy’s camp. ‘ The Union—it must and shall be preserved!” Contrast these word3, every one of which weighs a ton, with what Mr. Johnson calls his “sentiment,” of fered the other night at the National Hotel.— Think of Jackson launching that shot at Cal houn, lace to face with his enemy, and then see Mr. Johnson getting on his legs at a par tisan gathering, prestdsd over by Frank Blair, and gallantly sending up to be read, as if he were oflering a resolution In the Senate, this stump speech abridged: “No State of its own will has a right, under the Constitution, to 1 enounce its place in, or to withdraw from the Union, nor has the Congress of the Unit ed States the constitutional power to degrade the people of any State by reducing them to a condition of mere territorial dependency upon a government head. One is disruption and dissolution of the government, the other is a consolidation and exercise of a despotic power. The advocates of the Utter are alike enemies et the Union and our constitutional form of government.” What an immense range between Jackson announcing his gallant determination in brief, fit words, and making them good} aDd this Johnson, beaten, powerless, condemned by the popular verdict, yelping after the contest is substantially over, like a whipped cur!— Could Mr. Johnson have selected a worse model to copy just at this juncture, than An drew Jackson 1 If lack of sense were an tm- ! peachable offence, what an opportunity this I would be for Mr. Ashley. -It is officially announced tkw^T permiss- | ion has beei^ granted. to any one to post adver- I rising placards in the exhibition building at j fans, Protecdoa Ur Shipbuilders. We are gratified to observ e that Mr. Lynch's resolution allowing a drawback of all duties and taxes on articles med in the construction or steam and sailing vessels, has been adopted by the House. It needed only to convince Congress that taxation iu various lorms was actually destroying the business of shipbuild ing, to insure prompt relief; but in the con flict of interests and opinions, we had feared that it would be difficult to press home this point with convincing force. It was true that the business was declining, and carrying our commerce with it; hut the fact upon which it was ntojssary to fix the attention of Con gress was this—that the class of ships which can be built and equipped in the British Provinces for $40 a ton in gold cost in the United States $100 a ton in cut rency. To re duce this difference to the difference in price of gold and currency, our shipbuilders must have untaxed materials. They must be able to build as cheaply as the Blueuoses. That is the protection they need. That is the pro sectiOD which Mr. Lynch asked of the House, and which the House is ready to grant. Mr. Pika n DetauiruciUn. During the debate in the National House of Representatives last week, on the bill oil'ered by Mr. Stevens of Pennsylvania, for restoring the States lately in insurrection to their full political rights, Mr. Pike of Maine said the time had now arrived for action, and for one he was ready to act. After criticising the President’s plan and the plan of simple exclu sion till the unrepresented States skall see fit to ralify the constitutional amendment and proyide for negro sufli-age, Mr. Pike proceeded as ioliows: The present governments seem to have been the offspring of the military authority of the Executive. 1 see by the newspapers that Judge Kuffin, of North Carolina, pronounces the present government of the State illegal be cause the President’s authority over the States has ceased by the advent of peace, and also because the conventions were called by him for special purposes, and when these things he required weie done they were func tus officio. Neither rebels or loyal men or even the Democratic party indorse the Presi dent's action. It is clear that the President has no author ity to create a State. If, as he says, he found the rebel Slates “destitute of all civli govern ment,” he should have appealed to the law making power to carry into effect that great clau^p of the Constitution guarantying gov ernments to the States. And the go/ernmeuts so established have failed. Complaints are made to us from loyal men in all those States, and we are urged to interpose and protect tbo property and per sons of citizens of the United states not now sale, or rather entirely at the mercy of the prevailing lawlessness. The memorial of the loyal men of those States exhibits a state of things which should call for the intervention ot Congress il the statements are true. The reports of officers in charge of the de partments in which those States are situated contirih the statements. General Sheridan in his report to General Grunt last month, says: But justice is not done. To give you an in stance ot this, two soldiers were shot at Bren ham, Texas, about two months ago; they were unarmed and offered no provocation The grand jury could lind no bill against their would-be assassins, but found a bill against Brevet Major Smith, seventeenth infantry, be cause be broke into the house of some citizen in his attempt to arrest these men. My own opinion is that the trial of a white man for the murder of a freedman in Texas would be a farce, and in making this state ment I make it because truth compels me and for no other reason. During the last six months Indian depreda tions have taken place on the remote frontier Their extent is not defined as yet, but ‘hey are not very alarmiug, and I think that the Gov ernor has to some extent been influenced by exaggerated reports gotten up in some instan ces by frontier people to get a market for their produce, and in other instances by army con tractors to make money, I have ordered two regiments of cavalry to the frontier and placed a regiment of infantry at Austin, to be moved if necessary. It is strange that over a white man killed by Indians on an extensive frontier the great est excitement will take place, but over the killing ot many fteedmen in the settlements nothing is done. I cannot help but see tliis, and! cannot help but tell It to my superiors no matter how unpleasant it may bo to the’ authorities of Texas. His statement 01 the murder of soldiers Is paralleled by that in South Carolina, where the murderers of three soldiers on the Savannah river in 1805 go at large and no attempt is made to punish them. Tue c >urt has decided that military commissions have no authority and the civil authorities are indisposed. General Sickles gives a better account of South Carolina, but he says of some parts of In some parts of Barnwell, Edgefield, New berry, Chester, Laurens, and Kicbland dis tricts. (counties,) in South Carolina, a freed man lias little security lor life, lunb, or prop erty apart from the presence and protection of agarnson of United States troops. There are other districts in the western part of South Carolina where the same insecurity exists.— The truth is, that in certain localities of these S totes personal encounters, assaults, and dif ficulties lietween citizens, often resulting in se rious wounds and death, have for years occurr ed without the serious notice or action of the civil authorities; and in those neighborhoods where it has heretofore seemed to the popula tion officious to arrest and punish citizens for assault upon each other they oau hardly be ex pected to yield with any grace to arrests for assaults and outrages upon negroes. It is pre cisely in these localities that the most impa tience is displayed at the presence of a garri son, because people who have long violated civil law with impunity dislike martial law or any other law that is enforced. I am informed at the Freedmen’s Bureau that in Georgia during the last year there have been about one hundred and fifty murders of ffeedmen and not a single punishment! The Watson case in Virginia indicates the state of public opinion there. It is useless tp go into details. The state ments could be duplicated almost even where in the rebel States. nesiues inis insecurity of life and property these present governments have ostracised a large traction of the loyal citizens of those States* In two States, and perhaps more, a majority of the whole population Is so ostra cised. Black men are in the same condition politically, now that they are citizens, as they used to be when they were slaves. Certainly, if ever the United States, in the language ol the Constitution, were called up on to intervene, it would be for the relief of American citizens so situated. That clause in the Constitution is but a deau letter It it will not apply now. And I should hardly be willing to wsit for a decision of the Supreme Court afBnuln" the authority of Congress before we act. F no tice that a decision is threatened against such action. 1 don’t know that it is improbable. But the court should recollect that it has had bad luck with its political decisions. The peo ple of this country have thus lar preferred to govern themselves, and let the court at tend to its law business. Both its great po litical opinions have been reversed on appeal to the ballot box, and the general opinion of the; bar of the country follows the popular verdict rather than the judicial decisions. The Constitution, by furnishing Congress with a mode of getting rid of both President and court, evidently intended to make it “master ot the situation.’’ Of course its ul timate powers are not to be exercised upon slight occasions. But the questions with which we have now to deal, embrace In their scope the well being of a large portion of the country, and oue fourth the entire population As an industrial and political question we shal have none more Important beiore us dur ing this Congress. Having determined the proper thing to be done, it is the manifest du V* Uke al1 the constitutional methods within its nowpr tn Pnmn.aa u And 1 know nothing that promises so cood a result as to re-organize one or more ot the insurrectionary States. Perhaps it would be wise now to make the attempt in such States as oiler the best opportunities for success: a general bill, embracing the whole present dif hcuHies in its execution, whicli wouJd bid fair , to shipwreck the attempt. Better allow a i part to await future deelopments, getting i along meantime as best they may. Nor do I see the wit ot estaulishing terri rial governments, as is proposed. W by create a teiritorial oiganization in a State of a mil lion Inhabitants? Appoint a governor from Washington, and provide that a delegate may be sent here to speak, but not to vote? It looks like a farce, ft will serve no good pur pose whatever. Certainly for domestic gov ernment it is not needed, nor to prepare the machinery to become a State. Such an or ganization would be a laughing^ “the people in the State and out of it But let Congress provide at once tor a cou r^° ,n““e a COU!>l|tutiou, u> be submit ted to Congress tor its approval. The mluei m SUCh a Ciue’ “1"“ which*there would be division of opinion, would be as to tbe qualification of voters. All who would favor such oiganization would ot course insist upon ignoring color as a basis lor sulfrage; but should there be any other restriction ? _ Both education and property have been at times insisted upon; but 1 have hoped that, since the prompt action on suffrage in the District ot Columbia, we had come to the sen sible conclusion that ‘-man was superior to his accidents,-’ aud go at onoe to a result which will be arrived at finally, delay it as long as we may. If men all over the country may safely bo trusted with the ballot when it is In white bands, I know of no region to gp. prehend danger when it is in colored hands.

One of Waiklailm'a Aides-de-camp. Among the long-standing revolutionary claims which will probably come again to the notice ot Congress during the present session is 'hat of the heirs of Colonel William Grayson. The name is unfamiliar now, but ninety years ago it was a pillar of strength to the American cause. A writer in the A'ational Intelligencei gives the following reminiscence which will be entirely new to most readers: “The late John Taliaferro related to me an anecdote, the ,ast time I ever saw him, of Mr Monroe and Colonel Grayson, that may be re peated . They were both In the Continental Congress, and during the exciting period which has been adverted to he accompanied (he for mer on horseback to New York. Late in the afternoon while on their journey, they arrived at Bladenburg where they were met by the latter. The patriot statesmen and colonels of the Revolution embraced each other affection ately being the best ef filends, and distantly related, and immediately entered into conversa tion upon national affairs. Colonel Grayson was one of the most fascinating gentleman in conversation of the time in which he lived, and Mr.Monroe a courteous and attentive listener. As long as he could hold his eyes open young Taliaferro did not let a word escape his ears and at a late hour he left them tete-a-tete and pied-a-pied before a cheerful wood fire. At six the next morning he descended the stairs and found them, in the precise condition in which he left them, a mere chump of the fuel remaining uncousumed. In those davs patriot hearts knew how to feel and patriot brains to work. That night's sitting may have had a happy influence in shaping a nation's destinies. XI may dm auueu mat Colonel Urayion was a colleague of Mr. Monroe in the Continental Congress and in the Virginia convention.— When the Constitution was ratified by that” State, he was elected with Iiichiird Henry Lee, to the United States Senate. Ill health, how ever, compelled him to resign his seat, and he died soon alter. Cranberries. With proper culture cranberries, which can be raised in Maine as well as In Cape Cod or New Jersey, may be made a most profitable crop. David Brown, Esq., of Hampden, in the Maine Farmer, says a bog overflowed by water is not an indispensable location for suc cess ; by removing any soil to the pan, thus making a basin which will hold the water drained into it, and covering the hard clay bot tom with sand, he says the vines will flourish and produce fruit as well as on bog land. He thinks the soil should be so poor as not to produce weeds, tor these, unless carefully ex terminated, which must be a vexatious task, would choke the plants and ultimately over come and destroy them. We do not under stand, exactly, how ground so poor as not to produce any sort or weeds, can have pabulum enough in it to promote the growth even of cranberry vines. We should rather trust to seasonable fiowages to destroy oil bnt aquatic plants. Cranberries love the water and in it can defy land weeds. The great object ot flowage, however, ia not only to prevent the growth ot weeds unfriend ly to the cranberry vines, but to operate as a wet blanket to cover the blossoms in spring, and the immature berries in autumn as a pro tection against late and early frosts, which are fatal m either case. Low, flat grounds are frosty, and in this climate will hardly have time enough to grow and mature unless the plantation Is so arranged as to eDaNe the cul tivator to let on a coating of watar from some neighboring pond or fountain. Thia wld pre serve (he buds and blossoms in spring, and the unripe fruit in autumn, and will make the vines -laugh and grow fat,” at the tame time. __Tiu.xi.
