"Our readers know that, from the
hour of the Rebellion's collapse and ut

struction has been short and simple—
universal amnesty—impartial suffrage.

of Horace Greely are the sentirn ents of

And because Andy Johnson and his
friends will not agree to "swap horses"

els for universal negro suffrage, he
must be denounced as a traitor to the
Party that elected him and to the coun

too..many rebels, and We aro free to
say we believe he is, what can be
thought of the proposition of the radi
cals to pardon all ? It is well for the
people and the country that Andy
Johnson occupies the Presidential
chair. Rith a Stevens or a Sumner in
the Executive chair, it is not difficult
to guess the character and the number
of amendments that would pass Con

Most of the nonresident members of
the Grand Jury arrived this morning,
and made their appearance during the
forenoon at the United States Court
Room in the Court Rouse. Soon after
11 o'clock, the hour at which it was ex
pected the adjourned session of the
Circuit Court would be opened, Messrs.
Reed, Brady and Brown, counsel for
Davis, entered the court room and en
gaged in conversation with prominent
members of the Richmond Bar and
others. Messrs. Van Sickle and Thos.
11. Edsall, of New York, and Charles
Gross, of Philadelphia, junior counsel
of Davis, were also present.
Not more than fifteen or twenty
spectators, including two ladies from
New York, were in the Court at any
time during the day, it having been
ascertained by actual count that the
legal number of Grand Jurors was not
Judge Underwood did not appear
and occupy his seat until one o'clock.
.At that hour ho entered the room, and
the Court was formally opened by the
crier. By direction of Judge Under
wood, the Clerk, W. IL Barry called
the names of the Grand Jury, and
fourteen only responded.
James E. Lepscomb and 11. L. Wig
and, of Richmond, who had been sum
moned to make up the requisite num
ber, were then called to the Clerk's
desk to, qualify .as jurors. The former
declined to take the prescribed oath
and was excused. Mr. Wigand took
the oath and occupied a scat with the
other jurors. Another long pause was
caused by Mr. Lepscomb's refusal to
qualify. Finally Gilbert C. Walker,
of Norfolk, appeared and took tho
oath. The panel being thus complete
the Judge, at two o'clock, delivered
the following charge :
Gentlemen of the Grand Jury : I
am happy to meet you again and
know that you are still living,notwith
standing the assaults that have been
made upon you. Little need be said
in addition to the instructions given at
Norfolk. Your. last session has made
you historical, and I trust that the ef
forts which have been made to intimi
date you and to impede the course of
justice will not make you the loss faith
ful and earnest in the discharge of
your public duties. We ought not to
bo surprised that the treasonable and li.
centious press of this State and city
should wince and rage and become fu
rious when treason and licentiousness
aro exposed and arraigned for trial
and punishment. Nor should we be
surprised at the enormity and despera
tion exhibited, when we remember
that this city has - long boon the centre
and seat of the greatest traffic in human
beings that has over disgraced the
world—a traffic which has annually
employed many hundreds of moral
monsters and many millions of capital,
subsidizing the press, pulpit and poli
. ties of the State, renderimr.Richmond
more infamous among men for its par
-tieipo,tiota-:in this great crime than all
the cities along the coasts of Senegam
bia, Upper and Lower Guinea,
Lounge, Angela and Benguela com
The wonder then is that so many
traces of kindness, humanity and
Christian civilization should have sur
vived such debasing and brutalizing in
fluences, and let us thank God and take
courage that, more fortunate than the
devoted cities of antiquity, -we can
count more than ten men who have
stood faithful among the faithless. The
complaints of threatened violence and
intimidation which have been forward
ed to . me by several of your members,
for your late heroic , and patriotic ac
tions, have been submitted to the high
est legal and military authorities of
the Government, and I can assure you
of the earnest sympathy and firm sup
port of all the officers of the law, not
excepting the President, whom the
treasonable now flatter and fawn upon,
but whom they will probably soon
curse as heartily as they did two years
ago. But, gentlemen, I am glad to call
your attention to a law of Congress
which puts your owu vindication, as
well as that of the country, into your
own hands. In 1831, Congress enac
ted, as yon will find on page 488 of the
fourth volume of the statutes at large,
„"Sr.o. 2. And be it further enacted,
That if any person or persons shall,
corruptly, or by threats or force, en
deavor to influence, intimidate or im
pede any juror, witness or officer, in
any Court of the United States in the
discharge of • his duty, or should cor
ruptly or by threats, or force, obstruct
or impede, or endeavor to obstruct or
impede the duo administration of jus
tice therein, every person or persons
so offending shall be liable to prosecu
tion therefor by indictment, and shall,
on conviction thereof,be punished by a
fine not exceeding five hundred dol
lars, or by imprisonment not exceed
ing three months, or - both, according
to the nature and aggravation of the
offense, Approved, March 2, 1831.”
You will thus have it in your own
power to exorcise a wholesome re
straint upon licentious tongues and
pens, and upon a press which, us a
blind leader of the blind, has been, and
still is, one of the chief causes of past,
present and prospective calamity and
misfortune, the murders, duels, assas
sinations, violent and ungoverned pas
sions, ending in self conflagration and
self-immolation, unparalleled in any
heathen country. The poverty, suffer
ing, agony and degradation which
have given this city, of almost une
qualled natural capabilities, its bad
eminence, are the legitimate parts of
the teachings of its public press; and
anything you can be able to contribute
tewards its reformation will, in the
highest degree, be serviceable to the
cause of the country and of humanity.
But, gentlemen, let us act with mode
ration and discrimination, for though
a prostituted press is one of the groat
oat calamities, a free and virtuous press
is one of the greatest public blessings
—the great ornament •and support of
After delivering the charge Judge
Underwood remarked that, in the ab

would act in that capacity.

• RICHMOND, Juno 6.
There was quito a large number of
spectators in the courtroom this mor
ning, including nearly all the members
of the Richmond bar.
Messrs. Reed, Brady and Brown, the
counsol for Mr. Davis, entered the
rooin at about 10 o'clock, and awaited
the opening of the court.
At about a • quarter to 11 o'clock
Judge Underwood took his seat, and
the court was opened by the crier.
After the lapse of several minutes
Judge Underwood addressing the as
sistant district attorney said :
Mr. Hennessy-, we aro ready to hear
from you whenever it suits your con
Mr. Hennessy arose and the counsel,
lawyers apd spectators all arose and
pressed forward to hear his response.
May it please your honor, as the an
swer of the Government to the ques•
tions propounded by Mr. Reed on
yesterday are considered of 30111 C im•
portanco, I have written them out and
propose to road them to the court.
May it please your honor•, yester-
day, Mr. W. B. Reed, one of the coun•
sot for Jefferson Davis, propounded
certain questions to the court and to
me, which, in AIM absence of Mr.
Chandler, I at that time declined to
answer. Mr. Chandler is still absent,
being, I regret to say, entirely prostra
ted by a recent severe domestic cala
mity, and, as I promised, I to-day pro
coed to reply to the questions of the
That gentleman correctly says that
an, indictment has been found in this
court against his client, Mr. Davis, and
asks, Is it to be tried, is it to bo drop
ped, or is it to be suspended ? So fur.
as I am instructed, 1 believe it is to be
tried, but it will not be possible to do
so at present, for a variety of reasons,
some of which I proceed to give :
In the first place, Mr. Davis, though
indicted in the court for high treason,
is not now and never has been in the
custody of this court, but is held by the
United States Government as a priso
ner at Fort Monroe, under an order of
the President, signed by the Secretary
.In the second place, even if. Mr. Da
vis were in the custody of this court, it
`would not be possible for the Attorney
General, in view of his numerous and
pressing engagements, at the close of
the session, to come hero now and try
this case, which is a ease of great na
tional importance, as he would be ex
pected to do.
- In the third place, if Mr. Davis is in
-the delicate state of health suggested
by Mr. Rood, it would be nothing less
than cruel at this hot and unhealthy
season to expose him to the unavoida
ble fatigues of a protracted trial, which
appears to bo an inevitable result of
the array of counsel, present and pro.
spective, engaged for his defense. Nei
ther this court nor any of its officers
has any present control over the per
son of Mr. Davis, and until they have
it becomes impossible for the District
Attorney to say when ho will be tried.
But this I assure the gentlemen who
'represent him here, thp.t_the_hour_iir.
-Davisyetitiftre - tutu - the custody of this
court they shall have full and prompt
notice when it is intended to try Lim,
and so far as the District Attorney and
his associates arc concerned, they may
rest assured that their case will have .
a just and speedy trial without further
barrier, let or hindrance. This I say
for the special department of the court
which I represent.
But what the intentions of the Go
vernment are with regard to . M.r. Da
vis, I am no further instructed than
what I have said.
I now move, may it please your
honor, that this court, as soon as the
business hefore it is disposed of, ad
journ until tke first Tuesday in Octo
ber next. By that time 1 trust the
heat of the summer will have passed
away, the weather will be cool and
pleasant, and should we see those gen
tlemen here again, they will be more
fitted for the arduous labors which
their profession constantly imposes
In the meantime the crystalization
process referred to by the learned
gentlenian yesterday will be going on
and his client will be enjoying the cool
breeze of the sea at Port Monroe, in
stead of inhaling the heated and fetid
atmosphere of a court room.
The Court ordered an adjournment
until October next.
The Soldiers' State Convention.
The Soldiers' State Convention as
sembled at. Pittsburg, on Tuesday
last. It was a large, enthusiastic and
sometimes noisy gathering. The fol
lowing resolutions reported . by a Com
mittee, were adopted:.
WHEREAS, We, the representatives
of the soldiers and Bailors of Pennsyl
vania assembled in Convention in
obedience to a call recognized and for
mally acted upon throughout the Com
monwealth, baying in remembrance
the sufferings and trials endured by
the soldiers and sailors of the Union,
in their successful struggle against the
gigantic rebellion, and being determin
ed to perpetuate the great principles
established by our arms, and sanctifi
ed by the blood of our fallen comrades,
1. That we return to the Omnipo
tent Ruler of the Universe our sincere
and heartfelt thanks for the crowning
victories vouchsafed to our efforts
against a rebellion which had for its
object the destruction of our great
2. That the tender care exercised by
the Government and the people for
the remains of our martyred heroes,
and for their widows and orphans,
commands our Warmest gratitude:
3. That it is contrary to public pol
icy and subversive of the great prin
ciples won by patriotic blood, to per
mit any to hold offices of honor or
profit under the General Government,
who by word or deed embarassed the
Union armies or cast odium. upon .the
cause for which they fought.
4. That the soldiers of Pennsylvania
should organize in their respective
Counties to take care that the triumph
01 our arms be not fruitless, and the
just results of our great endeavors re
main umrathered by concessions of
any of the material points in issue in
the struggle to the defeated party, or
by yielding advantages fairly won
and we propose the following platform
as the basis of organization :
5. That such treatment should be
accorded' to the defeated foe as the
most chivalric magnanimity requires,
but without yielding a principle, com
promising a right, or above all, desert
ing an ally.
6. That such and so many guaran
tees shall be demanded from the South
and incorporated in the National Con
stitution as are necessary to prevent
recurring, yek k elhon, 4eenre justice and
freedom So" Men of all classes, condi
tions and colors, and guard the na
tional faith against, violation. ,
7. That rebels ought not to be pre
cipitated into power before such guar
antees have been obtained, and that,
accordingly, ConoresP, to which rigiit
fully pertains all ° questions of recon
struction should be cordially sustain
ed in their demands for such guar
8. That with the bogianing of the
war, the nation took a new departure,
and henceforth her Constitution will
be hold in the interest of liberty, jus
tice and security, according to the
rights of its preamble and the immor
tal Declaration of Independence, un
der the teachings of its authors and
compatriots.. Too long already has it
been interpreted in the interests of
slavery and caste.
9. That Major General Sohn W.
Geary, having given the best evidence
of his devotion to the Union during
the late rebellion by , volunteering in
its defence and serving faithfully du
ring the war, when many like Holster
Clymer, whip now claim to bo equally
patriotic ' were rendering aid and com
fort to the rebels, and he now being
before the people of Pennsylvania as
a candidate for the office of Governor,
we, his follow-soldiers in that time of
trial, pledge to him our support and
ask the same from all those who ac
knowledge the debt of gratitude due
from the country to its saviors.
10. That the soldiers of Pennsylva
nia recognize no warmer or truer
friend than Andrew G. Curtin. His
name is our watchword, his fame is
our hope, and his record is our glory.
The unswerving love of the " Soldiers'
Friend" will be reciprocated by unfal
11. That wo appeal hopefully to
Congress for speedy justice in the
equalizatiOn beimties to the soldiers.
12. That believing that " treason is
a crime an&- that traitors should be
punished," we demand that leading
traitors should be convicted and exe
cuted, as at example to traitors for all
time to come.
13. That this Convention is able to
express its sentiments upon the whole
matter of issues and candidates in four
words, which may answer for our
banners in the pending political cam
paign—God Grant Geary Victory.-
14. That, the legislation whereby
Congress attempted to defend and
protect our allies—the loyal men of
the South—against the deadly hatred
of the common enemy, and to make
good to a race of freedom proffered •as
the price of aid, and awarded as the
due of loyalty,deserves our unqualified
15. That we request Congress so to
legislate as to protect American indus
try by a high protective tariff.
Coming to their Senses.
Tho Corry Telegraph, a Republican
paper, which flies the name of General
Geary at the head of its editorial cc:l
- has the following just rebuke of
its radical contemporaries, whose
abuse Of President Johnson is making
for hiin 'hosts of friends:
We must say that we aro sorry to
see the daily virulent attacks made
upon President Johnson and his Re
publican friends by the leaders of the
radicals and the press in theft. interest.
It gives to the oppositidh, that is the
Democrats, so groat an advantage to
make themseltes a strong power on
the ruins of the Republican party that
scarce anything can prevent their reap
ing the fruits -which the Republican
party has brought to maturity. Were
there,any -sense- in these tirades we
could pass them over in silence or ap
provingly ; but when we see that they
are evidently made for the purpose of
forcing President Johnson to do just
what he don't want to do, namely,cas t
himself into the arms of the Democra
cy, it is time that all honest Republi
cans, those of the rank and file 'who
have stood by the government in its
darkest days, not only in word but in
deed also, should express their disgust
at the constant abuse of these mar
plots. No one can but remember how,
in the dark days of the rebellion, we
Republicans deprecated any attempt
to interfere with the power of the ad
ministration; and even when there were
found some few who did not see clear
ly the absolute necessity of stretching
the Constitution, they were branded
as copperheads of the deepest dye.
Should it be ; then, that we, who de
precated such transactions in our op
ponents, should now take it upon our
selves to do as . much and in many
cases more too.
President Johnson was only a few
short weeks ago considered one of the
faithful, and the press generally laud
ed him for his executive ability. Now
abuse upon abuse is heaped upon Min
till a lees brave heart would stagger
under it. P..ut he does not swerve from
his duty. He keeps by him the same
advisers whose knowledge and influ
ence supported and advised our late
President. He shows by this that he
is carrying out the policy of Abraham
Lincoln, that policy which we all laud
ed and which would have brought us
out of the political hubbub we are now
in. It is scandalous to hear the abuse
heaped upon the President—abuse
which he does not deserve. Were he
the perjured villain they - represent him
to be, think ye not he would have
shown the cloven foot more plainly
and have gOne 'otter to the Democracy
body, soul and-breeches, instead of do
ing as he is hid," ritand ing firm in his
position, doing that which ho thinks is
right? What shOuld he do but follow
his own opinion ? have we not heard
the sneering talk relative to foreign
potentates, who it is said have no will
of their own, :but aremerely puppets
in the bands of the ministers and Par
liament? Yet when our own President
ventures to assert a will - of his own,
and that will not contrary to the de
sired end, only differing as . to the
moans to gain that end, the pulse of
his opponents runs high and wild, and
they cry traitor to the cause.
Our statesmen and our people look
upon Louis Napoleon as the embodi
ment of all that is shrewd and great in
a ruler ; and yet our own ruler who
usurps no powers, works but for the
good of the country, is treated with
disdain. All the false friendships which
he daily discovers do not drive him ;
all the snake like charms put forth by
the Democrats to draw him away from
his party allegiance do not coax him ;
all the curtailments of prerogatives'do
not intimidate him; but he stands
there doing what he thinks his duty,
and what the wise men of his Cabinet
uphold him in: Were he otherwise than
honest, ho would yield to the persuas
ions and entreaties of the Democratic
friends, and go over to them for that
support which the radicals refuse him.
But no ; as a Union man ho was elect
ed, and as a Union man he seems
bound to stand or fall ; and it is our
opinion that it would be better for the
congressional opposition to strive to
heal the wounds than to keep them
festering in the present unhappy man
ner. Lot passion be cooled and com
mon sense be asserted, and ere long
we shall have a happy country and a
