Thursday Morning, March 14, 1867. The Npirit of Hcconolruried Rebel*. We are sometimes told 0f the grace with which the Southern rebels “accepted the situ ation, and the truly loyal spirit in which they have labored to bring their States into har mony with the Union, and all that sort of thing. Even President Johnson, in his veto of the Reconstruction bill, assumes that the South is all peacetu], quiet, orderly and loyal, devoted to the Constitution and Union, and that life and property are safe and the rights of all respected and protec ted, even though the combined testimony of military officers in that section contradict him, and the blood of New Orleans martyrs and others all over the South proclaims the falseness of his im pressions. It would be highly gratifying to the loyal men of the nation to be able to believe the rebels had not abused the clemency extended to them, and that the Presidential policy of wholesale pardoning of rebels and recon structing States had borne none of the fruits of Sodom. To show- something of the spirit yet by no means extinct at the South, we lay before the readers of the Preen a few extracts from some of the pardoned patriots of that sunny section ot the country. A friend has sent us a copy of the Richmond Time» of recent date, edited by Mr. P. H. Aylett, who was one of the early subjects of the President's pardon ing power. The leader in the paper referred to relates to the approaching election in that State, and the discussion of the gubernato rial question. The article opens with the gratulatory declaration that— The magnificent vindication of the honor of the State in the overwhelming vote by which the amendment” was rejected by the General Assembly indicates that there is to be. no more • dirt eating” by the men of the Old Dominion. The following extracts show how much of penitence for past sins of treason may be ex hibited by a pardoned and reconstructed rebel: Dirt-eating having therefore been abandoned as uuwholesome and demoralizing, by the Legislature, what should be hereafter the course of this proud and Dohle old State? The great struggle for national independence into which the people threw their whole soul having foikd* tj10 general government can, we admit, rightfully enforce the Constitution and laws ol the United States within our borders. lint our oath of allegiance does not require us to respect or obey that rebellious and dis union body [the U. S. Congress] which is now at open war with the executive and judicial departments of the government. We have JUST DECLARED WITH A THUNDERING EMPHASIS WORTHY THE HEROES OF MANASSAS, FREDER ICKSBURG, Gaines’ Mill, the Wilderness and Cold Harbor, that Virginians are NOT “SWORN SERFS” OF STEVENS AND SUMNER. We have .just drawn a broad, plain line be tween our allegiance to the government and obsequiousness to a vile faction, which is seek ing its overthrow. We have not surrendered our honor at the “stand and deliver” of the POLITICAL HIGHWAYMEN IN CONGRESS. We brought out of the late civil war too wide-spread and Well-deserved a reputation for courage, endurance and fortitude, to outlaw, immo late,disfranchise and dishonor our brothers, friends and respected leaders at the bidding of implacable toes. Having laid down our arms upon the assur ance of restored peace and reunion, we cannot give our assent to the perpetration of that sort ot brutal outrage which it is ever in the power of lawless conquerors to inflict upon the de feated. But we can socouduct ourselves here after, as to retain the respect and admiration ot the world for those noble qualities which cast a halo ot glory over the glooui and dark ness of the “lost cause.” Ignoring the right of Congress to dictate terms of reconstruction and prescribe the con ditions under which rebels shall re-acquire their forfeited and lost rights, and flouting those citizens of Virginia who would sensibly postpone action till the will of Congress was made known, this pardoned rebel says: Why should we wait, the dc.vclopc ment of the revolutionary conspiracy against State rights at Washington? Wliy should we trem blingly await the result of the menace ol State extinction and territorial degradation with which Congressional Yahoos threaten to defile the “mother of States and of statesmen?” In sulted, dishonored and brutally outraged, why should we not calmly and boldly exercise, at the usual time, the sovereign right to elect whom we esteem most worthy, to the oflice which “Govoner I'icrpoint” now occupies through the grace of Andrew Johnson? If our State government is to be speedily crushed by brute force, we pray to God it may sink like a noble old man-of-war, with colors living, drums beating, yard-arms manned, and some honor ed, bravo and battle-scarred Confederate Cap tain in command like Lee, Kemper, Smith or Wise. The following gem is peculiarly refreshing to those who think the “Old Dominion” has outlived her treason, and now with yearning, loving heart asks to be enrolled among the faithful, loyal, devoted States of the old Un ion : \\ e want no mau for that oflice [Governor] OF DOUBTFUL OR LUKEWARM DEVOTION TO THAT CAUSE, OVER THE LOSS OF WHICH EVEN OUR WOMEN ARE STILL WEEPING. WE WANT NO SUCCESSOR TO PlERPOlN WHOT WAS NOT WITH US HEART AND SOUL DURING OUR STRUG GLE FOIt LIBERTY. Wlion the war commenced many of the ablest of our public men, of the very highest order ot talents, threw themselves into the trout rank of battle and won immortal honor. It would be strange, indeed, it a heroic anil noble people like the Virginians did not seek to reward these men as valor is alwavs reward ed in a republic. We care not whether these gentlemen have been pardoned, or arc still at the mercy of Underwood and his peripatetic grand jury. While our hand is in we may as well give an extract from a still more Southern source. On the -2d of February, the Mobile Times in dulged in some highfalutin over the occasion, and referring to Washington, said: He was born, he lived, he died a slaveholder and it is because lie was a slaveholder that his lile was purer, his mind more free, his soul more aspiring titan ever was known in any other great man. How unfortunate that Washington should have died in perfect obliviousness of the key to his greatness, the secret spring to his im mortality, and blindly have blotted out, by the manumission of his slaves, that which alone made his soul more aspiring than that of any other great man. The same paper, on the same 22d of Febru ary—“give ear, O ye Heavens,"—rhapsodical ly says: To-day also is the 5th anniversary of the in auguration of tbe“permament” government of the late Confederate States of America—a na tion which, like a dazzling meteor, has illumin ated the political sky of this century and pas sed from the glance of this world, leaving be hind a track of glory, a halo of wisdom, states manship, bravery and devotion—unequalled in the annals of the icorld. To-day, five years ago, the Honorable Jeffer son Davis w as elected for six years the Presi dent of that Confederacy which, in its short existence, has made tor itself a record which future ages will contemplate with wonder and admiration. Oil this, the anniversary of his election, we cannot allow the memory of his devotion to pass unnoticed, and avoid looking with a bleed ni£ heart upon the coincidence of a day which has given birth to a hero, and raised a maytr to the altar where lie is to be immolated, while confessing the faith of which George Wash ington has been the Prophet and the Apostle. The Louisville Journal, professedly a loyal pa]s:r during the war, but signally needing pardon for its treasonable course since peace succeeded the clash of anus, gently hints at resistance and another rebellion, aided by the Executive, while discussing the prospects of the passage of the JKeccnstruction hill. It says: “The people of the South, if wise and pru dent, can live lor a time under such a damna ble tyranny as this, but, if they consent to it, they deserve it. They don’t deserve it, and tlu-y will never consent to it.. .. “What are wo to expect? What is before 11s? Who can answer? President Johnson is bound by liis oath of office to maintain the Constitution and the laws. If Congress made an audacious at tempt to destroy or paralyze the other t wo departments of the government, what will be his duty? The answer to this question, if made by him, demands the nob lest courage and the highest statesmanship. We do not assume to render the answer. We have confidence in the President and his trusted advisers.” The prospect of having a genuine democra cy practically applied to the South, causes the Kichmond Times to show its teeth in the most approved hyena style. For example: “The most hideous and revolting feature of that, invention of the devil, the ‘Sherman bill,’ is that whether we consent to return to the Union, or prefer to remain at the mercy ot the military, we cannot avoid the outrage of negro suffrage. The charter of our city and the con stitution of the State compel us in a few weeks to elect city and State officers, and at those elections the gleaming bayonets of the soldiery at tin* throats ot a disarmed people, will lorce negro suffrage upon us. S\ itli a malignancy at which a half-civilized Cossack conqueror would blush, we are re quired to submit to that insult which has just been intli"ted upon the people of Georgetown. U e may have to do it in self-defence, hut we will do it with clenched teeth and a prayer for a vengeance as terrible as the red homines ofHeaven upon those who have thus tortured a disarmed be and in die season retribution will tall upon these oppressors.” The Southern people and journalists are not all insane, however, i let urn in? reason is exhibited by a tew. Making a virtue of ne cessity they acknowledge that submission to what cannot be avoided, is to tie the policy of their section. Thus the Petcrsbuig inJe.r, which strikes a keynote that is taken up by others ol more or less influence: No denial need be attempted to the fact whit*li four days of threatened trial have devel oped. The South will accept the slavery ex tended under Shermain’s bill. A thousand straws show how the current is setting. No Hazard is now in the prediction, that ere sixty e* ♦ ®ave passed, a majority of the Southern status will voluutarily have conformed to the new order of things, and we make it. National Taxes. The tax bill which has just become a law consists wholly of amendmdnts to previously enacted laws relating to internal revenue. Of its thirty-four sections,quite a number are merely administrative and concern mainly the officers of the government; several oth ers, applying to the manulacture of spiritu ous liquors, which is forbidden by our laws, are of no interest to the taxpayers of Maine. Omitting these two classes, we give below the substance of the remaining amendments, having carefully compared them with the for mer laws: 1.

Tbe l.iquar iuibreyli*. Wp have heretofore given quite numerous extracts troni tbe testimony oi those who have I>eeii heard before the liquor committee of the Massachusetts legislature, iu iavor of a license law. The testimony on that side hav ing been put iu, Hou. Asahel Huntington ol Salem, appeared tor the remonstrants, or those who favor prohibitiou, aud optued the case preparatory to the introduction of testimony. We copy from a Boston paper a report of his remarks, as they indicate the line of poli cy to be followed in the further investigation of the matter before the committee: He said he came not for the purpose of making alone the openmst argument, but as a ^titmner against a return to the old system of licensing the sale ot liquors, aud also as a witness More the honorable body, u„d should be widmg to undergo a lull examination bv the counsel who represent the petitioners lor a license law. He then alluded briefly to the previous agitation ol this question in the Leg islature down to the present movement of 1867, giving also an account of the prohibito ry movement in Maine. In Essex county he said the prohibitory law bad repeatedly been made eifectual by seiidiug violators to the House of Correction, and it seemed to be gradually working its purpose. In other see tious tines were imposed instead of imprison ment, aud the law was, in such cases, very littie cared lor. We have had a prohibitory law for fifteen years, but until recently it bad not been generally used. We have not yet got to the pains and penalties of the law, but will soon reach them through the activity of the State Constables. We have had a “pub lic salet.v association” to embarrass and de feat the law, hut the patties quarreled among themselves, and the concern is now dead, and he hoped its ashes would rest in peace forev er. The violators at one time hoped for pro tection from the United States government, but they were disappointed in this too. Tbe proliib tory law. he would say, stood upon a foundation which could never be shak en, and no license law could ever be enacted by this or any other Legislature which would stand like it. If, as had been suggested, the power to grant licenses was left to the cities and towns, the people would nuliny it the same as they did in 18.'18. What the temjierauce people staud upon is, if the doctrine of selling liquors is a bad one, why let any one sell it, and it it is a good one why not let everybody sell it? The peo ple of Massachusetts will not stand by a law which allows one man to engage in a business and which probibits Ins neighbor from engag ing iu the same. The records of the Stale, he said, maintained that tbe people ot Massachu setts have lor thirty years been in favor cf prohibition aud against license, and they nev er could be got hack to a license system and kept there. This lie could demonstrate by facts which had taken place for tbe last flfiy years. There is but one road which leads down to the drunkard's deu, and all men using intox icating drinks are upon that road. He did not cxiicct that they would abolish the use of in toxicating drinks, forunlil tbe day ol millcni um he believed there would always be plenty of liquor to he had in Massachusetts, bu tbe main problem is how to provide for tiie neces sities and prohibit the sales for beverages. He believed, aud would say in conclusion, do what can be done iu high places, it is a moral impossibility to establish a license law, and if it is put upon the statute liooks iu 1807 it wili not stand any more than it did iu l.fots. The people arc too much instructed and have had too much experience. If temperance men could not have a law which would be with them, he prayed they would make a law against them and place it in the hands of the enemy. jit. >». u. opuoner also anuresseu tne coin mittee, and said Uis only apology for doing so was that the temperance cause was without liberal funds to employ eminent counsel. The purpose of the temperance people, he said, has been to suppress the liquor traffic, believing it to he a great and wicked evil. We have been taught from Uie Bible not to put our trust in l’rinces, or great men, and notwiths'anding the great array of ex-governors, judges, Ac., which has been brought here, he was not to put entire trust in them. For instance, he said, Hon. Mr. Paine, who appeared before the Committee, had stated that the prohibitory law never was in favor in Maine. Since then he (Mr. Spoonerj had written to a friend in Maine, who had for warded him a statement of the vote of the lieople there on the prohibitory ami license questions, and the vote was as follows: For prohibition, 28,864; for license, 51)18. Keernt Publication*. The I*inanciax, Crisis ; its Evils and their Remedy. 8vo. pp. 38 paper. This little pamphlet is republished from the New York Tribune, and contains the letters which have attracted so much attention over the signature “,T. 8. P.” The letters were writ ten in Washington, by the Hou. James 8. Pike, late United States Minister at the Hague. There are two kinds of rapid writ ing — the superficial rapidity with which an active but empty mind runs over a subject altogether new, and the swift discern ment with which a well furnished mind aji pli«s familiar and well established principles to new facts. Mr. Pike’s letters were rapidly written in the last sense—commentaries from day today upon the debates in Congress, but regulated also by an internal law of their own and growing steadily into the compact essay which they now form. Mr. Pike believes we are-already in, not eoming'to, a financial crisis; that the only remedy is a return to specie pay ments; and that some date tor resumption ought at once to be set, so that all men may shap# their plans accordingly. We have copi ed portions of those letters from the Tribune from time to tim-, and need not|»peak further of their transparent clearness ami cogent argu ments. The American Natpralist.—This is the ti tle of a new illnstrated magazine ot Natural History, issued under the auspices of the Es sex Institute, and designed to present in a pop ular manner the best results of scientific study in a department of Nature’s arcana which is yearly attracting more general interest and in quiry. It is under the editorial charge of Mr. Alpheus 8. Packard, jr., who is assisted by Mr. Edward 8. Morse and by Messrs. Alpheus Hy att and Frederick W. Putnam. The two gen tleman first named arc too well known in this city and State to need any endorsement by us of their fitness for the labor they have under taken, and the editorial force here combined is such as to hold out the most flattering promise for the success of the work.
