The voto given to Judge El well in
Columbia County is the llnest tribute
ever paid to a eandidato by the people
here, and ought to bo highly gratifying
to him and his friends. Ills strength
beyond jr.trty In tho election Is not to bo
measured by the ditfereuco between
his voto nnd Clymer's In tho county;
for he carried some of his strength, out-
sldo of party line, to the ticket upon
which ho was placed. There can be no
doubt that the Congressional question
swelled, to somo extent, tho voto for
Clymnr in tho county, and accounts for
tho fact of a majority exceeding sixteen
hundred for him in a year of general
disaster or falhiro to tho Democracy.
Ono thousand seven hundred and
thirty-seven majority is a grand vote In
a county of tho third or fourth class as
to population, and wo repeat it is one
of which tho friends of Judge Klwell
may bo proud. It was given him be
cause he had merits of a high order as
a candidate, and represented the princi
pies of Unionism, Justice, and peace in
tho country. No man who voted for
him will hereafter regret his vote, or
wish it transferred upon the record to
his opponent.
But we must add, that this splendid
voto for tho Judge was aided somewhat
by the opposition of Palemou John.
John's management or mfo-inunagc
meat of the Republican cause in this
county has assisted to runup the. Demo
emtio majorities until they have pasted
the number of sixteen hundred, and his
support of Mercur nnd opposition to
Judge Klwell this year was a valuable
clement of strength to the latter. 1

To C oloncl James Ov Jlroudhead, JSC.
Louis :
DeaiiSih,- You were rightly inform
ed that President Lincoln did require of
the heads of the dllloroiit Departments
their opinions in writing as to both the
constitutionality and expediency of tho
bill " for tlie admission or tho Stato of
West Virginia into the Union." And
such opinions were given by all of them
except only Mr. Caleb B. Smith (who
had then vacated, or was about to vacate,
his oillce of Secretary of the Interior).
That transaction took place lu tho few
last days of tho year 1M2. My own of
ficial opinion bears date on tho twenty
seventh of December, 18G2, and tho
President approved and signed the bill
on tlie last day of that year.
I have occasion to remember those
transactions very distinctly, for 1 took a
verv uveiv interest in uiequesuon; ami
indeed, it was upon my own suggestion
that President Lincoln demanded our
written opinions. I urged upon mm
tho advantage of written over oral com
munications on a subject so important,
and chiefly upon these two grounds:
J'irst, they constitute valuable muni
ments of the passing history of the Gov
ernment ; and snimd, they operate as a
reasonable anil wiioiosoino cnecK upon
upon us, the advisers of tlie President.
The questions put by the President
were in thomost brief and compendious
form, thus: " Pint, istnesaiu act con
stitutional '.' Second, is tlie said act ex
pedient V" To two questions we
all gave to tho President our written an
swers: and lean only express :ny sur
prise that they should have been so long
witiiiieiii irom implication, seeing mat.
tiieytoucii upon a principle oi tue great
est magnitude, and bear directly upon
a question wnieii lias produced great ex
tement in Congress ana in the nation.
I have the only copy of those docu
incuts that 1 know of in private hands;
but no doubt they may be found in the
miner depositories at ashinirtoii. And
n regard to your suggestion as to what
those opinions may contain concernim:

Tun Nowburyport Herald thus com
ments upon tlio proposed impeachinon
of President Johnson: "Now to ou
minds tlie proposition of impeachment
is one so full of danger that ho wh
fathers it must bo shortsighted or tcrri
bly depraved. There is not a rational
man in the country thnt docs not see
that It carries upon ita very face the
commencement of a civil war, by tho
side of which tho late Rebellion would
appear as child's play. Ueforo any one
accustoms ills mind to wander too far
in that direction, let him inquiro If ho
Is prepared for a stato of anarchy that
would destroy tho value of property
that would repudiate national and pri
vato debts together, that would darken
tho sun of republican liberty that till
century would not seo its fauo again
and would make human blood run I
tho streets till tho very dogs would lai
it like water. If any man of lighting
ago favors tlio deposing of tlio Pres
dent in tho present stato of tho country
let him join u military company
once, and drill as often as he eats; and
if he Is not of that age, but has boy
that are, let him call them to him on
the first opportunity, and looking Mieni
fairly lu the face, decide which of them
or how many, ho is ready to seo die
rather than have Andrew Johnson
President of tho United State till the
fourth of March, 1809.
"It Is tlmo this insanity ceased. If wo
aro not all crazy, or drunk, or mad. we
shall tell all men of all 'parties, who
propose such schemes, away, devil
we'll none of you. Wo want no moro
war no more slaying of tho first born
no moro maimed men or disconsolate
widows or orphan children upon our
pension list. We want no moro public
debt, anil no higher taxes than wo now
have. We want no President who
would put State against Stato and man
against man In deadly array by ignor
ing tho representatives of tho peoplo ;
and wo want no reproentntlvo so lost
to reason, right, and public duty as to
propose tho deposition of tlio President.
Tho times nro full enough of danger
without nny such madness. Every
gooil aniUruo man who loves his race
or his Ood, will seek peace, not war;
restoration, not destruction ; prosperi
ty, not anarchy; and lovo to all men
everywhere, nnd hato to none, and nial
