The Quarrel Commencing.
Already, On every side, we see evi
dence of a bitter quarrel not far distant
between the extreme and moderate
leaders of the Republican party. Wen
dell Phillips, Butler, Stevens, Brown
low, Forney & Co., would sink the
country rather than be defeated in
carrying their extreme points. They
will have their way or "break things."
The Republican party as ti voting mass
aro not in favor of the extreme meas
ures advocated by the extreme leaders,
but the power is now in the hands of a
few, and that fow may treat with con
tempt the Voice of the many. Forney
has even wont so far as to advise en
invasion of an adjoining loyal State! Is
he not as guilty of treason as many be
justly denounces as traitors ? Forney
is a bid leader for any party, and the
time will come when ho will either
rule, ruin or desert the one ho is now
a prominent member of. He is an ex
trcrilist and his teachings are calcula
ted to disturb the peace of our country
to as great an extent as tho disunion
sentiments uttered by Phillips & Co.,
.and the Southern traitors. Our BeSt
men must act, and act promptly, or
trouble will come thick and fast upon
us as a nation. It is gratifying to see
many Conservative Republicau papers'
now denouncing the teachings of Phil
lips, Forney &
INSTRUCTIONS TO CONGRESSMEN.—We
trust now that all the Republican can
didates that have just been elected to
Congress will conscientiously adhere
to the political programme which has
been generally proclaimed and accept
ed by the party during the elections,
with reference to the Southern States,
to wit : that the ratification of the
Constitutional Amendment by these
States shall entitle them to their prcip
er representation in Congress. So far
as we have read the political speeches
and seen the platforms in different lo
calities, we notice that this ground has
been almosvuniversally taken. The
people, too, have indorsed the position
with the most remarkable unanimity,
and. have thus instructed their repro-
Bentatices as to the course of action
they should pursue. Congress will
most likely have opportunity during
the coming winter session to give
practical effect to these instructions,in
regard to one or more of the Southern
States. Let .them remember their
12 . romises,and the popular desire as now
expressed—a desire for solid and lasting
THE TRIAL or JEFF. DAMS.—We are
favored with so great a variety of judi
cial and other opinions respecting the
trial of Jeff. Davis, that it is exceeding
ly difficult to believe that it is serious
ly intended to try him at all. We have
tilt report from Fortress Mon
roe, that, another term of the Circuit:
Court will be allowed to pass without
any attempt to get judicial verdict in
1.140 case. The technical difficulties
ale said to stand in the way,
are -incomprehensible by laymen of
high intelligence. And we doubt if
they are much better comprehended
by men of professional repute. The
point of most concern is that delay
makes the situation no better. No one
pretends to .uty the alleged legal im
pediments in the way of a trial will
disappear by awaiting for twelve
months, or twenty four months. All
that the judicial and other functiona
ries care to contend for is the impossi
bility; of going on with the trial now.
The people are beginningto view this
sort of thing as simply so much tri
fling. If there is no court to try Da
visi on what pretence is he kept a pris

Where a star (*) is given, it indi
cates that the county, or one or more
counties in the district, or certain dis
tricts in the city, (as in Philadelphia)
have given instructions. For instance,
five legislative districts in Philadelphia
with Republican: members, instructed
for Gov. Curtin. So did Crawford, Ad
ems, (Senator id'Conaughy) Hunting
don, Luzerne, (Senator Shoemaker,)
Union, Mercer, Lawrence, Butler,
Moittgomory,[Senator .Royer] Centre,
(Senators Hall and Haines who aro al
so instructed by II untingdon,)and Lan
caster instructed for Mr. Stevens. Of
the doubtful list,the five given in Phil.
adelphia will be controlled mainly by the
popular current. They will want to wor
ship the rising sun. Philadelphia has so
touch patronage to gather from nth,
tional administrations, and patronage
does so much for the preferment of lo
cal politicians, that they are governed
to a much greater extent by such in
fluences than are country members.
The Allegheny delegatiOn will most
likely go solid for one of the candi
dates, and if the prospects of success':
were even, I would consider the chan
ces of Curtin, Stevens and Grow about
even for their votes. The delegation
will not as a body vote for Cameron.
The two votes in Chester classed as
doubtful would prefer Forney, and will
probably vote for him. The doubtful
votes in the Indiana; Lycoming, Perry
and Washington districts are more
likely to go with the current in thoSe
sections for Gov. Curtin : and the doubt
ful member in the Venango district
may go to Grow. That Gov. Curtin
has more than doubtless the positive
strength in the legtslaturo of any oth
er man, is no longer a doubtful ques
tion, and that the active, vital Repub
lican sentiment of the States is moving
irresistably for him, none but ,obser
vers blinded by ambition can fail to
see. Combinations cannot be made by
the minority candidate, even if they
were disposed. Cameron would prefer
Stevens if he cannot suceeed,and could
transfer him two-thirds of his votes,
while the remainder would go to Cur
tin. Stevens would prefer Forney to
any of hieother competitors, but most
of his supporters are avowed friends
of Gov. Curtie if they cannot succeed
with their first choice. Grow would
prefer Curtin next to himself, while
his supports would from choice divide
between Cameron and Curtin after
leaving him. Grow's vete cannotat any
stage exceed 10. Stevens might go to
20 on first ballot.. Cameron's will never
exceed 20, and no combinations can
reduce Curtin's positive strength on
first ballot, for a thorough fight, below
35. Stevens and Grow have made no
personal effort in the contest. .Col.
Forney announced himself as a candi
date and leaves his case with the leg
it.lature. While he presents less posi
tive strength than any of the others
he is not specially objectionable to
In this estimate I have aimed to give
trtio reflex of the preferences and pur
poses of the Republican members of
the legislature as they now are. Public
sentiment will not materially change
them, except perhaps to strengthen the
strong man. Combinations by and
between politicians will of no avail in
the contest. If there shall be other
reasons for changes adverse to the ac
credited sentiment of the State, the
people will understand them, and it
will not be well for those who unacout
ably defy the wishes and hopes of the
POLITICAL RErtr».—Perhaps the re
pute of a class of American politicians
is of no very great account either at
home or abroad. But it is not exactly
agreeable for respectable Americans
citizens in Europe to be confounded
with the Brownlows and Butlers, and
to be talked about in the first capital
in Europe as "political assassins." The
Parisians do not complain of our treat
ment of Frenchmen, but of the char
acterization of one class of American
by another class. If wo could look at
it from an outside, independent stand
point the practice would appear so re-.
volting that we should be ashamed to
continue it. There is not, to-day, in
Europe an enemy of free institutions
that does not rejoiCe at heart that the
Southern Slates remain unrepresented
in Congress. We may do our party
fighting after what manner and meth
od we please. But every hour's un
necessary delay in the

from the national strength and from

The Baltimore Imbroglio.
BAurimonz, - Oct. 26.—At the open
ing of the investigation this morning
the counsel for the Commissioners sub
mitted in a paper in which they ex
plained that whilst they had and did
still maintain the groundlessness of
the charges against the CoMmissioners
and also do not withdraw their plea
against the jurisdiction of the Execu
tive to try the charges, nevertheless
as that plea had been overruled and
decided against them, they (Commis
sioners) deemed it clue to justice and
ft their fellow citizens,as well as them
selves, that their counsel should return
and render such aid as they might be
able in the proposed investigation, to
cross-examine witnesses produced by
the memorialists, &c.
The counsel for the memorialists ob
ject to the commissioners counsel com
ing in now unless they would with
drew their objection to the jurisdic
tion of the Executive.
After considerable argument the
matter was arranged by the counsel
for the commissioners, changing the
language of the document submitted
by them so as to read; for that purpose
we are present, and not abandoning
the benefit of the plea to the jurisdic
tion, of which we desire to stand on
the record to avail, as it may be, on
behalf of our clients we plead not gait
ty to the charge against them.
The Governor then made a state
ment : Ile notified the counsel that ho
would require a prompt decission of
the ease; that this examination shall
be gone through with in the shortest
practicable period ; that all irrelevant
matter shall be thrown aside, and that
the prominent leading points of the
case shall bo stated, and b shall be dis
posed of at the earliest practicable
He informed the counsel that he in
tended to get through with the case
by not later than Wednesday of next
week, and he notified them that if
they had any important evidence to
submit, that they have it here prompt
ly; ho also announced that as soon as
the Exceptive was satisfied by the eVi
dunce that should be presented, that
the commissioners Were innocent or
that they were guilty, he should take
action as soon as he should feel justifi
ed in doing, even if that action should
be taken in the midst of the proceed
ings which were going on.
This announcement was regarded by
most of those present as an indication
that the Governor's decision would be
adverse to the Commissioners. The ex
amination of the numerous witnesses
present was then commenced, and
continued up to three o'clock, when
the examination was adjourned until
to-morrow morning. The evidence
thus far has been mostly against the
judges of the election, and charging
the Commissioners with partizanship
in the discharge of their duties.

Dispatches received from Annapolis,
Maryland, last night, announce that

The evidence against them is very

shrink from the duty.

well understood that Governor Swann
will doposo them and appoint others,

REPLY OF REVERDY JOHNSON.
BALTIMORE, Oct. 20.—T0 Messrs. Al
fred D. Evans, S. S. Shipley, and 11. 8..
Dulany : Gentlemen—Your note of
yesterday is received. I regret that
professional engagemerds which I am
now discharging, and which promise
to occupy all of the coining week, put
it out of my power to act as counsel in
the matter you refer to.
In compliance with a verbal request
of one of your members I propose
briefly to state my opinion on the legal
question which the matter presents
Has the Governor, in the recess of
the General Assembly, the power to
remove the police commissioners of the
city for "official misconduct ?" I have
no doubt that he has.
The words of the law are so plain as
to admit of but one construction. The
duties of the board are prescribed ;'and
to guard against failure to perform
them, a contingency that might hap
pen, the law says : "For official mis
conduct, any of the said commissioners
may be removed by a concurrent vote
of the two houses of the General As
sembly, or by the Governor during the
This is the only provision on the
subject. The offeese guarded against'
is "official misconduct." The penalty
for it is not fine or imprisonment, but
removal from office alone, and the au
thority to investigate all the facts and
enforce the penalty is, if in session, the
General Assembly; if not in session,
the Governor. There being now a log
islative recess, the jurisdiction and the
power to award the penalty is in the
Governor•. It is suggested, lam told,
that before he can remove the commis
sioners, the filet of their official mis•
conduct must be tried by a court and
jury. That is absurd.
1. Because the courts are not named
in the law, either expre.isly or implied ;
as having any jurisdiction in the case.
2. Because the Governor, who can
alone render the judgment of removal,
11::s devolved upon 11;ir, the entire re
sponsibility, and, that being so, it must
be for him exclusively- to investigate
and decide the fact, and riot avoid re
sponsibility by . referring it to the
3d. Because lie"-bas no right to call
upon a court or jury toassist him, and
no one else haS such right.
4. Because, no matter what a court
might find to be-the fact, it could not,
if found one way, award the only pen
alty that can be rendered, or it' found
in the other, deprive the Governor of
his power to, award it, or absolve him
.from the duty of doing so.
And lastly, because his power dill--
ing a legislative recess in the same
over the (acts and penalty as that of
the General Assembly when in session;
and I suppose that no one will hold
that that body could only act in assn.
ciation with, or in subordination to,
any of the courts of the State.
It is impossible, I think, for a sound
mind to ascertain' a doubt upon the
The long and well settled doctrine
of the President's power to remove
officers under the Constitution of the
United States is in conflict with such
a theory. It is now, and has been
since the organization of the govern
ment, settled that the power exists.
The only doubt ever entertained
,about it was that it was not coincident
to tho power of appointment, bit that,
as that •power Was—in the President
and Senate jointly a removal required
the sanction of both. Neither in the
debate when the question was first ag
itated, nor in any that has since been
had, was it intimated that if the power
had been given in exross terms to the
President, be could not exercise it, or
that it was not his duty to do so with
out the aid of any other body, legisla
tive or judicial.
Upon the whole, I have no doubt
that it is given to the Governor alone
(the Legislature not being in session)
to investigate into the truth of the al
leged misconduct of the police commis
sioners, and to remove them, if he is
satisfied that they have been guilty of

JEFF• PAVIS' TRIAL.
Farther-PostponeMent until next spring.
—The Causes of this delay, and; Who
is to blame for its Chief Juitice Chase
Puts the Fault on Congress, Etc,.
FORTRESS . A.LONROE, October 23.
November, the appointed time for
the trial of Jeff—Davis, is rapidly
drawing close upon us, but the present
confused complexion of affairs bearing
upon the trial gives very little encour
agement that this important event will
find an early place on the calendoi• of
the United States Court, or any other
civil tribitnal. I gather this general
and undoubted result from a conserva
lion to day 'with M. L. 11. Chandler,
United States District Attorney for
In the way of a session of the Uni
ted States Court being held next month
in Richmond stands the failure to allot
judges over the districts as newly laid
out in the act of Congress at its last
session. The difficulty can only be ob•
viated by Congress, which, as in well
known, will. not Meet until December,
unless a special session is called by the
President, which is altogether too re.
mote a contingency to base any calcu
lation upon. Futhermore, the United
States Supreme Court meets in Decem
ber, when Congress convenes, and with
the present multiplicity of important
causes before the Court, Chief Justice
Chase will have his hands too full of
business co attend to anything else.
From this brief exposition of filets,
it will bo seen that there is no present
likelihood, notwithstanding what Mr.
Davis may anticipate, or his friends or
counsel anticipate, or wish for him, of
his being brought tOi trial till next
spring at the earliest., Chief Justice
Chase has informed Mr. Chandler of
bis - perfect readiiiess'and even anxiety
to hasten on Oh , trial, but casts the
blame upon thp - , stupid blundering
made by the last Coiigress in its med
dling with the geographical boundaries
of the judicial districts in the manner
it did, without making the proper al
lotment of judge too Conform with the
other changes. Regarding the issue
of a writ of habeas corpus by any State
or local court, Mr. Chandler anticipates
no such action, but on the contrary
feels well assured it will not be done.
His explanations On this point in the
recent published correspondenceof the
President, Attorney General, and him,
self, are abundantly explicit, and need
not be recapitulated hero.
• The issue of any
,Such writ, as no
one can fail to see, would be hostile to
the best interest of Mr. Davis. As to
the President pardoning Mr. Davis, it
is the opinion of Mr. Chandler that the
former has no right to do it, and will
not venture on any such step. He does
not believe either, that the President
will grant laimAnMtirther parole than
he enjoys ; butt this last statement is - a
mere matter of opinion ; and thus the
.Mr. Davis seems likely
to be booked here for the winter. He
may murmur against it, and so may
his friends ; but there' seems no help
for it. As in the past, so in the-future,
on-finding this fate inevitable, he will
doubtless hear up with like firmness of
manner and 'calm a patient hope.
