Q. D., NON
It is quite manifest; that there is a
groWing desire . Solis,* President John
son impeanhed; ae well among the
masses.of the republican party, as
on the part. of its puma's. ' We re
gret - this, not that :we do mot think
he richly merits an impeachment and
punishment. , But' is such a mea
sure feanible, and is it expedient ?
These are both impostant questions,
and it behooves us, to • ponder them
1 ~ ~ t

That4hich has lately, most of all,
stimulated the anxiety for 'an . im
peachment, hail :grown out of the
summary and unwarrantable remov•
al of Sheridan from his .command in
Louisiana and Texas ; and whilst
we agree that this . _ was an unmiti,
gated r ontrage upon the dountry, not
only because the 'defiantly lawless
spirit of the rebels in Obese states
absolutely needed the stern and fear
less administration of Sheridan; but
becanse it was in, opposition to the,
will of the - majority of the people,
-as expressed at the last election,
when the , policy - of the President,
and that of Oongrer, was fairly be
fore the people. But why should we
objeet to this act ? : If the pewcorn
mender of the Fifth. Military Bistrict
revokes. Sheridno salutary otders,
issued to keep mischievous rebels in
subjection, should. 'restore removed
rgbeln to power, and in every other
way interfere .witti4e lawful re-con
struction of Louisiana and Texas,
who suffers by it ? Theserebeis can
on t get back through Congress, and
they not come back in the Manner
prescri ed ,by its authority, and
they nullify and 'disregard • its acts,
they only gbstpone their own *tern.
By this , the 'i try loses nothing.—
the leading re le i n . the stat4nam
-d, have lately howu, repeatedly,
and 41 every way p ssibie, their hos
tility 'to the governor nt, and exhibi
ted a desire to inju it at every
point, and are they fit for itizensgip?
And who wants them back 011e:un
der the influence of such a rverse
spirit ? ' And is it not better { the,
country that they remain out Aile
it-lasts 7 , Aside from-this,. what Z'
feet will Sheridan's removal have up--
on us' as a party ? The probabilities
are, that it will make ten, if not fif
leen thousand votes for us at the next
election, and this is a consideration
of no small moment. -If too, by the
restoration of Monroe and Herron in
New Orleans, the rebels get up one
or two riots, suck as they had when
pose worthies were in power before;
we may count on further gains in our
`Votes ;' and does anybody who has
studied the rebel element; doubt the
return of mob-law,,violence and mur
der, whenever it gets into power un
deiJohnson's regime ? Gen. Grant
never said anything truer than when
he told Johnson "the rebels would
look upon Sheridan's removal as an
encouragement in their opposition' to
the government" This being the in
terpretation they will- give to this
act, we may look for - high timer
among; rampant rebels., What need
they fear if Johnson upholds .the ?
So look out for the burning of schnol

There is still , another strong .n
-sideration which should not be I. at
sight of in this matter, and that
that johnson alleges,' he, remo. -d
Sheridan because he [Sheridan,] • id
not obay the laws, but traniicen. ed
them in a nunber of-instances, them
by irritating - and provoking opposi
tion to them ; and he haajust finned
a proclamation, ordering, not only 'Ol
citizen, but all 'officers of the ArmS ,
and Navy, to regard with punctilious
care,' and obey with the, nicest strict
ness,* the laws, and orderinga of
the constitutionaliourts. In the ab-
Betio* any riots, or lawless demon
strations, at present, this proclama
tion hao been wondered at ; but may
it not be intended as testimony
against the accuiatious On which the
impellehmont is to be founded *ln
this,9rtul in his letter to Gen. Grant,
Johnson is evidently making outs
lawful justification for himself ;
in fortifying himself thin, suppose he
defeats 'au impeachnient l , will a fail
ure in this matter not injure asl and
is there' not souse danger :of this ?
and if there is danger, ii 3 it flood pot
icy to undertake it I' Clearly Dot.
Furthermore suppose' Johnson re,
slats an arrest under animp*hinent
Can he do this_? Certainly;. , He is
commander-in-oldlit.of the til i ntand
navy, and if Grant refuses to order a .
regiment, battalion, division* corps
to defend the /Preaident from arrest,
he [the President] can order Grant
under arrestfor disobedientai of the
orders of - his superior; and can to
this, until he finds an officer who will
obey his orders. - Suppose_ then, tha t

Johnson is resisted What. then ?
Only this, that , civil War will be
augprated, and ate we !prepared for
this And can we - getentirely'olear
of the. - charge of Instigating it, if
brought abisit in the way indicated?
It is alleged= however, therS is
so 'danger of thin-. That the Presi
tient will not, dare not,. resist the go
hest of Couqress. Who'bnows this?
We 'believe, and no 'does more than
half the country, that this man John
son is base enough to--do anything,
,is he not, by; trick,and contri
vance, defeating the, 'acts and par
,poses of Congress, almost daily
Besides this, we have - the express
declarations of his lorgan, that he
will use the Army sand Navy tede
fetid himself. The Constitutional Un
ion (horrible misnomer) one of his
Washington organs says "that it may s
sotni be necessary for the President' to
arm his, riendi, that the array and na
vy-will fight for him, and that he will
at all hazards fulfill his term of office."
Can mistake the meaning
of ;this : ; and there is plenty of! such
testimony,out. Is the . country•pre
pared for such an event ? - is the re
publican party? We do not believe
it. I .As a question of expediency,
it is perfeetly right in us to ask,
what will be the condition of the re
publican party, -in case civil war
grows out of. an impeachment ?---
Without attempting to predict any
resnit, is it not fearful to contemplate
the fact? And will any wise repub
lican urge it under such a prospedi ?•
Then, if we look at the fact, that
Johnson's bad conduct, Oti in no
wise hurt us, as a party, why should
we. care to impeach him ? ,We do'
know that in his attempts to in-•
jure us, helms done himself the most
harm, and eo it will. continue to be:;
and does it:notiook more like a spir
it of revenge, than like a wish fen.
justice merely, 'to think of impeach
ing, under such circumstances ? And
will not this very -fact hurt us more
than we can gain .by 'an impeach
ment, even should such a measure be
successful, which' we sincerely doubt
More than all this, :Johnson's bad
octal are really venal compared with
those of Davis, Lee, Mason, Slidell,
Wise,Beaureikard, and their compeers
in' crime, yet we are unable k to punish
the latter - , in the least, for their note
'ens villanies, and with this truth
sating us in the countenance, we
seek to punish, for venal political
• l
proatit Li on , a malignant, and there
by mis-g ided,political enemy. How
&lea this 161, to say nothing more ?
We confess krsetves ashamed of the
fact, that ther is any otherwise fair
repOblietin journ ..tin -the land, that
favors the, schem of impeachment
under such a state o things.
The N. Y. 'l3ano4 o . gasconading
on. the subject, is not w
,th a row of
pins. That journal biok its neck,
as a republican organ, on e Davis
bail business ; and it has trie since
various expedients to get back\into
favor,- and this is one of them. Nor
is the pressing, chafing, urgency, fo
an impeachment, on the part of Gen.
Butler, and other Congressmen, to be
regarded as 'purely disinterested.—
The PreSident'a impeachment would
necessarily give rise to another ad
ministration, and Congressmen, are
known to be partial to cabinet ap;
pointments; and foreign missions. It
is to be remembered too, that it la
seldom that any but Congressmen
are faicired with .such commissions,
while it'has been intingted that Gen.,,
Butler has had, for a l long - time, a
strong hankering for the War Office.
Where-is-no-harm inthis, only we ob
ject to bringing on a civil war, mere--
ly to gratify- this person's Political
aspirations, and lathe expense of the
republican party. We 'should be
chary in this matter. Some of the
leaders who are urging it most, have
destroyed former politiCal organiza
tions, which they led, by imprudent
irsecations of political'opponents,
and others again are working at it
from personal spite, while a third
_party, ivitich professedlY cares 11°0 7
ing for the republican paiky, favors
it on the ground, that. Johnson iskep
posed to political equality to all, and
therefore, should. be removed; with
out regard to _consequences. Let us

then, that men who have fought, side
by Ode on many a bloody field, who
together in the dead hour of the night,
after the 'battle, have toiled ,under
the weight of the bodies or their
slain comrades, to save them from
'mutilation by a heartlese foe, and
place them where at some .future
time they could be pointed out to a
stricken father, or a heart-broken
wife.; who have marched shoulder to
shoulder for many weary miles under
the sweltering southern sun nail
they had seen their beloved comrades
fall by their, sides, nature succumb
ing at last to the unbearable exhins-,
tion..of _upaccustomed labor, and who
now' having gained (the triumph of
the greet God-given principle' foi
which they . marched, and fought, and
died, having laid upon the' altar of.
their country, the lives of four hun
dred thousand of their braves ; what'
wonder that these men should form
themselves into an indissoluble band
of brothersl Than the ties; which
bind'them, there can be .none more
closely wov around the human
heart. Thad' the Sympathy with
which they regard 'each other, there
can be none more deeply rooted, nor
more lasting Their devotion to, and
dependence upon each other have
been tried as by fire, and it is in ac ,
cordance with our habits, it is de-
'Tended by our nature, that these pa
triots, bOund ,together by the Strong
est bonds 'of which companions are
Capable, should desire to perpetuate
the recollections of the times and the
event's which drew them so near to
each other, to labor for eacl4 others
good, to proteci‘ and support the
widoiis and fatherless of those who
paid the forfeit of - their heart's blood

In 1861 eleven States seceded; and
since then only twenty-three - have
been represented in Congress, until
the admission of ,Tennessee in 1860.
All the United States Bonds-5-20's
7-30's and 10-40's--all the green
backs, sand all the National Bonds
were created by this Congress of
twenty-three States. . -
President Johnson •calls this an
" assumed Congress "—therefore not
legal. His supporters and the Dem
ocrats call it a " rump. Congress,"
and a " usurping Congress, and
hence not a lawful Congress; and
the great effort has been to elect Con
gressmen in the North, and admit
enough from the rebel States to-e n-
force this " Policy."
If a Congress representing 'but
twenty-three Stites be not 'a lawful
Congress, then every • United States
Bond, and all our greenbacks, and
National Bank notes, are worth notbi
ing ; because an unlawful Congress
could not Make lawful Bonds or law
ful money.
The mad effort, so recently made
by the rebels and their sympathizers,
to destroy- this •Government by force
of - arms, failed. Thus far the attempt
to do the same ' through Congress,
has also failed, because bf the action
of the loyal voters at the ballot-hex;
and the, last effort at. destruction is
now being made THROUGH ItER COURTS.
Witness - the recent attempt by
Democratic' lawyers to induce :the
Supreme Court of the United States
to issue an injunction, nullifying the-
Reconstruction Laws of Congress in
Mississippi, Georgia, ,and other rebel
States. Bead also the' opinion of
George Sharswood, the Democratic
nominee for Judge of the Supreme
Court of Pennsylvania, in which he •
gravely denies , the constitutional
poWer of Congress .to make 'piper
money a legal tender. (Bone - vs.
Trott, Legal Intalligeptier, of Meri3h
'iBth, 1864, page'92.) Judges Wood;
wa t z m l and Thompson of the same
Co announced from the_ bench the
satnk alarming doctrine, in • 1865.
(See Mervine. vs. Sailor et al. Legal

And th too, in the face of the
fact,that ttuperior Courts of every,

opinions and_ jadictal decisions of
George atiarswood..! _A short ',review
of- the principal occurrences; since'
the last iiltate campaign; is now con
sidered proper ` " - The contest of 1866 -
, w as fought, in the main, upon the
amendments proposed b 3 Cnnztess'
to - the Constittitinn,:of .i the ~United
States. These wer.e natierkal issues;
and on the one side were' arrayedthe
Union - Republican: ,party, and the
"'Boys in Blue;" and on • the other
President Johnson; the Democratic
party, and all the rebels end their
sympathizer's' from one end of the
Union to the other.. • 'On these Jae
mentuons issues Pennsylvania rallied
her strength ; and %polled over one
hundred and• forty thousand more
votes than :at, her preceding annual
election. Ainong 'the ' results were,
the. triumphant election of Major_
General John W. Geary for Govern
or, and the endorsement of Congress,
by the return of. a 'delegation more
unanimous for the right ,than ever
known before In the histOry of the
Commonwealth. Other loyal States
united with us, and 'Die: ,insane_and
wicked "Policy" of Presidentz.John
son, and of his: new friends and al
lies, was eyerwhelmed by the unpre:
cedented and magnificent popular
majority of four 'hundred thousand
votes 1 Every State which had been
faithful to the nati;:itial govern.;
ment and the cause of the Union dur
ing the , war, approved the proposed
amendments. Every rebel State ex
cept-Tennessee, rejected them ; and
under the rebel provisional govern
ments created by President Johnson,
rebel power resum its authority,
and became domin tin their execu
tive, legislative, an judicial depart
inents. Vagrant and Libor laws:vir
tually re-enslaved-the freedmen Loy- -
al men were" ontlaWed and trampled
under foot ; and the 'revived spirit of
the rebellion was everywhere trium
phant. Riots, mindere outrages,and
assassinations, were ' t he , order of tie
day; and security for either the lives
or the property of hiyal men- Was no
where to beltiund ii, Treason had front
seats, loyalty had een made odious,
and traitorous cspiraters against
the life of the na tion were vindictive
and rampant. i '
-.. Such was the i condition of affairs
in the South when Congress conven=-
ed in December,' 1866. This nation
had solemnly resolved, .and voted;•
that the Union should be restored,on
the basis of loyalty and justice ; and
to this end was'the F" rtieth Congress/
elected. Hence, wer passed the Ref
construction-laws,in xecution of the=
recent popular verdi t. The Presi
dent vetoed them, re sing to accept
or abide by the deei 'dn of the peo
ple, to whem he had so often and a 6
vauntingly appealed Congress re
enacted them over the vetoes, by
more then- the 'required , two-thirds,
and they ire"f now the laws of the
land. lJniler , theni, including the
amendments of last session, recon
struction is rapidly progressing; and
would doubtless ere long , be success
fully accimplished i , but for.the per
sistent obStru.ctions of the President,
in defiance of Cong,ress and the popu
lar will. Justice•is being done; loyal
men, white and' black, have been pro
tected from
,the - malice of defeated
rebels; treason,in a measure at least,.
has"" beet made odious," and traitors
have - been compelled "to take back
seats"—as Andrew. Johnson, in a In
cid interval, declared they should.
Even the better portion of the rebels
admit'the justice , of these reconstruc
tion laws, and i eheerfully acquiesce ,
in their provisions.' General James
Longstreet,, a distinguished rebel
officer, in a recently published letter
from Nevi Orleans, expresses him:
self is follows :
"I shall set out by ass uming a
proposition that I hOld• to be self-evi
dent, viz : The highest of human
laws is the law that is established,
by appeal-to arms. IThe great prin- .
ciples that divided political parties
prior to the
_war ,Ivere thoroughly
discussed by our w)lsest statesmen.
When argument was exhausted re
sort was hail'to conipromil3e. When
compromise' was unavailing, discus\
eion was renewed; and expedients
were sought, but none could :be found
to' suit the emergency. Appeal was.
finally made to , the sword, to deter
mine • which of the 'claims was the
trite - construction of constitutional .

of . the North.; -and what 'they
claimed as principles, cease to' be
'principles; and are become law. The
views that tpe hold cease to be prin
ciples because they are opposed,to•
law. It is, ,therefore, our duty . th
abandon idecus that are 'obsolete, and
conform to, the requirembnts-Of, law.
,The bill and amendments are
peace offerings: We. should accept
there as such, `and place ourselves upon
them as the starting point from which futuie gwlitieal „issues as they
