Tax--Contraetien et the
The last week has been one of unusual
interest in Congress. The President's
Message•ezcited much feeling and indig
nation among the members by reason of
its arrogant arraignment of the past legis
lation of Congress. Mr. DRAKE, of Mis
souri, in the fienate oil'ered a resolution
of censure, which led to a warm debate
—some of the Senators ,eves taking
ground against printing the Mesiage, a
courtesy invartabVixtended to executive
documents. Few more passionate man
ifestoes have emanated from President
Its manifest purpose was to intensify
Rebel hostility •to Reconstruction, and to
prolong the struggle in the hope of revi
ving Rebel domination. This effect will
doubtless be produced, and if over the
whole South there should be a formida
ble organisation of the disaffected portion
of the peopie to prevent Reconstruction,
it will be largely due to the recommend
ations of this document.
The Impeachment Report was dis
cussed and disposed of on Saturday by
the very decided vote of 57 yeas to 108
nays. The Republican vote was divided,
For Impeachment, 57
Against Impeachment, 69
Attie were 39 Democratic votes—all
The Republican vote by delegations
was as follows :

The considerations which controlled
the judgment of the House, were mani
fold. Some of our friends thought that
the evidence did not. justify the charges.
Others, that the offences were chiefly of
apolitical or partisan character, and not
personal. Others, ,that, whatever the ill
deserts of the President, his Impeach
ment was not necessary to the safety of
thr Nation and therefore could safely be
;postponed, to make way for important
public questions affecting every interest
in the State. The influence of some
members of the Senate was actively ex
erted against the measure, and had its ef
fect upon somevotes.

The House of Bepreseutatives has
passed a bill to repeal the.tax of 2 cents
per pound on cotton, and the bill to re
peal that part of the law which authori
zes the Secretary of the Treasury to con
t net the currency to the extent of $4,-
000,000 per month. Both votes were very
deeidod. The one is due to the general
conviction of the inexpediency of a tax
upon a raw product which enters largely
into manufactures and, in those shapes,
is heavily taxed ; and to the apprehen
sion that, its continuance will seriously
endanger the hold of American _cotton
upon the leading markots of the world.
The other vote was inspired by a convic
tion that the Secretary was unduly pres
sing his schemes for resumption, and was
embarrassing busints and crippling en
terprise. The Republicans are unwilling
to allow a general . .;•deatruction of pros
perity, in order to, gratify an Adminis

'PRESIDENT JOHNSON% IHNISAGE.
I..ast week we gave a summary of the
President's recent Message. As it is
largely made up of are-hash Of hii sever
al Veto Messages—recapitulating in -bitter
terms his objections to the various Con
gressional enactments on the subject et
ReconstruCtion, And presenting nothing
new—its . re-publication in full, would mot
pay. Few of our readem would be too
tent to wade through its dreary waste of
fault-finding, bitter denunciations of the
law-mak:llg power, and insolent assump
tions of xecutive prerogatives. Mr.
JOHNSON evidently indulges self-com
placent ideas of his own capacities, re
gards Congress an unnecessary and cum
brous past of our political machinery,
and believes he could "run the machine"
much better if freed from Congressional
eurvellance, and invested with dictatorial
powers, somewhat after thet style of do
ing things among the despolisms Of the
old world. Upon what sources of infor
mation the President bases his statement,
so often repeated, that peace and 'order
reign supreme throughout the South,
that "all the rights and all the obliga
tions of States and individuals cak be
protected and enforced by means per
fectly consistent with the fundamental
law," IV is difficult to conjecture. Cer
tainly not upon the official Report of
Gen. GRANT, who represents the spirit
of Treason and Rebellion still rife in
many portions of the South, and says
the presence 'of-the Military is'necessary
to overcome malcontents and secure obe
dience to the law. Not upon the official
Reports of the Departmental Comman
ders, all of whom have found it necessary
toremove from official position blatant
Rebels for their, refusal to enforce enact
ments having in view the security of
life and property; and the restoration of
the Rebel States to their normal conch
tion. The President sees fit to. ignore
the stubborn facts thus officially present
ed to his notice by his military subordi
nates, as also the sworn testimony of
prominent Union men in the South de
veloped before the Congressional Inves
tigating COmmittee, without even allud
ing to them, and instead deals in loose
assertion and insolent arraignment of
the law-making branch of the govern
ment. The Message is in no wise cal
culated to heal the. breach between Con
gress and the President, but must widen
it. It is an official notification that the
contest for supremacy between the Legis
lative and Congressional branches of the
Government is to continue to the close
of Mr. Johnson's administration.
We notice that the Republican and
Independent Press generally denounce
the tone and temper of the Message in
severe terms—many declining to publish
it, Even in Europe its imperious tone
excites remark and much astonishment.
We annex a few extracts from our lead
ing exchanges, as types of the general
I • Z. 1
"At the moment when all patriots are hop
ing for a cessation of a political and quaai
sectional strife already too long presisted in
and a restoration of calmness and fraternity,
Mr. Johnson hurls a fresh fire brand into the
face or the country. He summons into now
activgy and acrimony all the feuds and hates ,
which good men had hoped were quieted, and
challenges a renewal of the mischievous, per
ilous strife already protracted beyond reason
and for which there is no longer a shadow of
crease. So untimely, so wantonly, wickedly
baleful an appeal to outworn prejudices and
dying factions has not been made in all our
past history. We sadly apprehend that :its
effect on the action of the House on the im
peachment question (which is the special or
der for to-day) will be such as to perpetuate
its deplorable effects."—N. Y. Tribune.
Its temper savors far too much of arro
gance—its spirit is far too bitter and hostile—
its pervading tone is too decidedly one of stern
rebuke and denunciation, to permit the hope
that it will contribute anything to the pacifi
cation of the country, and the restoration of
the peace and concord of which all its States
and sections stand so much in need. He rea
sons, remonstrates and contends with Con
grese, and denounces it for the action it has
already taken. Moreover, everything he says
in this Message he has said before. He urges
now precisely the same objections to the Con
gressional path of reconstruction which he
urged before it became a law. He gives Con
gress no new reason why it should repeal that
law which he bad not already given why they
should not pass it. We have no new "infor
mation," no new facts, no new arguments ev
en upon this subject. He tells Congress that
the action ittook at the last session was un
constitutional, arbitrary, harsh and cruel in its
effect, at war with the best interests of the
country, and certain to produce nothing but
disaster and ruin. But he had told Congress
all this before its action was taken, and yet
it did not prevent the passage of the law.—
His repetition or denunciations, which failed
of effect when They were in time and place,
now that they ire wholly out of time and out
of place, is as undignified and unworthy of
him as it connot tail to prove offensive and
exasperating to those to whom it is address
ed."—N. .Y. Times.
"Mr. Johnson's Message is,we suppose, about
what everybody expected. He still clings to
the old fallacies, and appears • like one given
up to delusions. The hide : bound platitudes
of two weary years are simply repeated. In
the beneficent Reconstruction acts our nnwil
ling - President can see nothing but wrong and
oppression, and courteously likens them to
the barbarous • legislation of the past and
buried ages. We venture to predict that the
Message of Andrew Johnson will be read by
less persons, proportionately to the population,
than was any message of any President ever
before in this country."—Phil. Press.
"The President's Message is mainly devo
ted to a reproduction, in extenso, of his peen-,
liar views on Southern reconstruction. The
most remarkable thing about it is that Mr.
Johnson has nothing definite , to recommend.
This, we apprehend, means that the split be
tween the President and Congress offers "no
diplomatic half-way house of rest," and that,
therefore, nothing in the way of relief need
be expected for the South until the people
shall have established at Washington at new
President and a new Congress."—N. Y. Her-
"Mr. Johnson does not like anything tha t
Congress has done in pursuance of its plan of
reconstruction, and be evkiently belives that
the only panacea whiCh can be concocted to
cure the evils under which the country suffers,
must be mixed after his prescription, of ingre
dients chosen by himself. He opens lila mes
sage with a growl, and he goes on grumbling
at each newslause with increased loudness."
"Nearly all that is said of the Reconstruc
tion act might as well have been left out.
The constitutional 'aspect of it he. has argued
before, with equal force, s i t least, and he adds
nothing to the weight of his argument. Neith
er can he instruct us much by any new facts,
as the experiment is gin s in the course of
trial---sea.rcely began, indeed, in many re
spectsl-and he ought to have awaited the'
complete results. What he does lay, we fear,
will open old sores, and justify that uttered
ous retallation of debate for which Congress
is only too ready."---N. 17 Poet.

In our last issue we gave a specimen of
Rebel malignancy from BRICK Pomp-
ROY'S paper, (the La Qom* Denurkrat,),
just now so popular with our patriotic
Union-loving "Democracy." We sub
join another specimen "brick." The
Louisville Courier having recently pro
posed Gen. SHERMAN as the next "Dem
ocratic" candidate for President, the Ls
Crosse Democrat protest in this wise :
"And such a candidate ! Sherman—Wil
liam Tecumseh Sherman—Vandal Sherman,
prince of a,band of bummers, thiervet vaga
bonds and ruffians—Sherman„ whose 'march
to the sea' would have damned to all eternity
a legion of pirates and freebooters—Sherman,
the lackey, tool, leftenant, of the Sangamon
brother of the devil, the obscene, brutal
and boorish Lincoln—Sherman, whose
hands are red with the blood of thousands of
American freemen—Sherman whose most glo
rious acts can be written in two words— 'At
lanta' and 'Columbia !' This mnshioom bf
civil war, blood watered, rank with the cor
ruption and wickedness engendered in tlle
hellish crusade for the enslavement and de
gradation of white men, and the triumph of
niggers—this thing a Democratic candidate
for the honors which, as a party, we have con
ferred upon Jefferson, Madison, Jackson, Van
Buren, Pierce and Buchanan? Proposed by
a Kentuckian, from a Sovereignty thousands
of whose sons rest in unhallowed graves,
slain for the love of liberty by Sherman's
minions ! Great God !-that a Democrat should
so disgrace himself and humiliate that grand
old party !"
GRANT MEETING IN NEW TORII.
A large mass meeting was herd in
Cooper Institute, New York, on Wed
nesday eveninglast, of citizens favoring
the nomination of Gen. GRANT for Pres
ident. Mr. A. T. STEwART;the eminent
Dry Goods Merchant, presided, and on
taking the chair, said they were assem
bled as representatives of the commercial
and industrial interests of the great me
tropolis to give General GRANT a nomi
nation to the Presidency, independent of
all politics or party. A series of resolu
tions were adopted, unanimously nomi
nating General U. S. GRANT for Presi
dent, after which the meeting adjourned
amidst great enthusiasm. The hall was
beautifully and tastefully decorated with
flags and transparencies, and there was a
fine display of fire-works outside the
building. Among the officers of the
meeting we recognize the names of Wm.
B. Astor, Moses Taylor, Hamilton Fish,
Moses H. Grinnell, Cornelius Vander
bilt, S. B. Chittenden, Wm. E. Dodge,
Peter Cooper, Wm. H. Aspinwall, Wm.
H. Webb, and other - representatives of
the "merchant princes" of New York.—
Francis B. Cutting, Gen. Sickles, Lyman
Tremaine, Gov. Ward, and S. B. Chit
tenden, addressed the meeting.
IT turns out that Reconstruction Con
ventions have been carried in SOUTH
CAROLINA, MISSISSIPPI, and FLORIDA.
So that all the Rebel States, except TEX
AS, are now considering the mode of re
suming their old places in the Union.
The Rebel portion of the population—
who call themselves "Conservatives"—
are preparing to vote down the Constitu
tions which may be agreed upon by the
Conventions, not because some provisions
of them may be unacceptable, but be
cause they don't desire to be restored un
der the Congressional plan. In name of
the States, this opposition may be effect
ive : because, as the law now stands, it
requires - that at least orm-half the regis
tered voters shall vote upon the question,
and that a majority of the votes cast shall
be in favor of the Constitution. Hence
if, since registration, a voter has died, or
removed from ,the State, or become in
sane, or otherwise disqualified, he is
counted against the Constitution as ef
fectually as if he attended the polls and
voted against it. Congress may correct
this, and require that a ratification by a
majority of the votes cast shall be suffi
cient. In that event the chances are,
several of these States will be restored
by the Spring months. Of course, all
the Opposition to Reconstruction is in
the ranks of the Copperhead party and
their Southern allies.
They are still the Disunionists—and
are keeping the Union divided, in order
to make capital out of the miseries of the

The trustees of the Antietam National Cem
etery held a meeting here on Friday evening,
and had a rather warm time. The character
of the charter is only just becoming generally
known, and it appears that the document was
so adroitly worded that the cemetery is in
tended for Rebel dead just u mach as for the
dead of the Union army ; express provision
being made that the Rebel soldiers shall be
separated from the others, but that the re
mains of all should be gathered with equal
care. Many Northern States have given mo
ney to put the ground in order and pay the
expenses of the cemetery, and it was claimed
by their representatives' at the meetlig last
night that they would not have made these
appropriations had they known the character
of the charter, and the use to which the funds
would be pat. < It was necessary however, un

Tag session of the Italian Parliament was
opened on the sth. Prime Minister Mena--
brea, in a speech on the occasion, justified the
action of the Government in arresting Garibal

sion; but he declared it was as inconsistent
for the temporal power of the Pope to exist at
Rome as it would be for a foreign power to
hold possession of the city of Paris.

Minister Rouher made an able speech in de
fence of the Emperor's policy on the Roman
question. He admitted the unity of Italy was
desirable, but, in accomplishing it, Italy
should never go to the extreme of taking pos
session of Rome by force. There are still
doubts as to the meeting of the European
Conors, called by Napoleon, to settle the
Italian question. England declines to go into
the Conference, unless a basis of settlement be
submitted in advance.
DESPATCLIES received by the Gulf cable re
port that another terrible hurricane has swept
over the West India Islands. St. Thomas
and Santa Crfiz, the two islands we are about
purchasing from Denmark, were again visi
ted with great severity. The storm appears
also to have extended to Vera Cruz, where
rains and inundations had caused great
losses, and an earthquake had been experi
enced. The storm at St. Thomas appears to
have been worse than the first. Forty-seven
shocks ofearthqnake were felt. The sea rose
sixty feet and swept over the entire city.
The loss of life and of property was enormous.
Some of the inhabitants had fled to the moun
tains, and others were seeking transportation
from the island. All the merchants were in
solvent, the steamship and other companies
had abandoned the island, and every-body
was involved in the common ruin.

Or does a thick scum rise to the top? Or is a sediment

constipated? Do you have spells of fainting or rushee of

mind constantly dwelling upon this subject? Do yon

you wish to be left alone, to get away from everybody ?
Does any little thing make you start or jump? Is your
sleep broken or restless? Ie the lustre of your eye as

enjoy yourself In society as well? Do you pursue your
business with the same energy? Do you feel as much

Your back weak, your knees weak, and have but little

Now, reader, self-abuse, venereal diseases badly cured,
and sexual excesses, are all capable of producing a weak
ness of the generative organs. The organs of generation,
when in perfect health, make the man. Did you ever
think that those bold, defiant, energetic, persevering,
successful business -men are always those whose genera
tive organ■ are in perfect health? You never hear such
men complain of being melancholy, of nervousness, of pal
pitation of the heart They are never afraid they can
not succeed in business; they don't become sad and die
conraged; they are always polite and pleasant in the
company of ladies, and look you and them right in the
Ikea—none of your downcast looks or any other mean
ness about them. Ido not mean those who keep the or.
pas inflamed by ruining to excess. These will not on
ly min their constitutions, but also those they do holi
ness with or for.
How twiny men from badlycured amens, from the
affects of 'diabase and excesses, have brought about
that state of weakness in those organs that has reduced
the general system so much as to induce almost every
other disease—idlocy, lunacy, paralysis, spinal affections,
