1 he Baltimore American- saj s : The Dem
ocratic party has learned nothing by adver
fity. During all the time it has been iri a
hopeless minority it has cherished the same
evil purposes, the same perverse and rcao
tional propensities, the same hostility to the
inarch of free iustitut ious, the same undy
ing necrophobia, the simc proclivity to dis
integration. The New Hampshire defeat after all has
its compensations. The Legislature is Re
publican and there will le a Republican
Governor. From the latest returns it ap
pears that the whole number of Represen
tatives claiming ta Le elected is 32!), of
which 166 are Republicans,.-""1! lo.J Demo

stands five Republicans and five Democrats,

At the Circuit Court of Garrard county h'st

Senator Sehurz was serenaded in St.
Louis on Tujsday night of lust week, by
the citizens, "inespective of party,'' it is
sa:d. The demonstration hid its origin
with a few lKtmocrats and "Liberal" Re
publicans, and was intended as a compli
ment to the "independent" course of the
Senator. Politics are getting more and
' more mixed in Missouri, and it wili be some

who is who.
On Mond -y, May 1st,' the act of Congress
repealing all special tuxes, licences, etc., ex

tobacco, went into effect. The reduction of
the receipts of internal fevcuue by these
chaDces will amount to between thirty and
iotty millions of dollars. And thus the Re
publican party, in pursuing its policy of
economy, is able to lilt the burdens of taxa
tion from rT the people and at tUe same
time reduce the public debt nearly $10,000,
000 per month.
The Press says : The recent Democratic
Congressional address is den luneed no less
by the rebel Democratic press than it is by
the Republican. It is particularly distaste
fjl to the Ku Klux newspapers of the
South. They cannot brook the i lea of be

their friends and sympathizers to keep quiet
ond to restrain their niurdeious passion.
They charge the men who signed tho ad-drc-s,
and the papers that endorse it. a. fol

Proclamation hj the President.
Vashisgtox, May 4. the President has
issued the following proclamation :
The act of Congress entitled "An act to
enforce the provisions of the Fourteenth
amendment to the Constitution of the Uni
ted States, and for other purposes," ap
proved April 20, A. D., 1S71, being a law
of extraordinary public importance, I con
sider it my duty to issue this, my proclama
tinnTkaUing the attention of the people of
the LTnited States thereto, and enjoining
upon all good citizens, and especially upon
public officers, to be zealous in the enforce
ment thereof, and warning all persons to
abstain from committing any acts thereby
prohibited. The law of Congress applies
to all parts of the ITnited States, and will
be enforced everywhere to the extent of the
powers vested in the Executive. But inas
much as the necessity therefor is well knfwn
to have been caused chiefly by persistent
violation of the rights of citizens of the
United States by combinations of lawless
and disaffected persons in certain -localities
lately the theater of insurrection and mili-
i tary conflict, I do particularly exhort the
people ia those parts of the country to sup
press ail such combinations by their own
voluntary efforts through the agency of lo
cal laws, and to maintain the rights of all
citizens of the United States, at.5 to secure
to all such citizens the equal protection of
Fully sensible of the responsibility im
posed by the act of Congress to which pub
lie attention is now called, and reluctant to
cull into exercise any extraordinary power
thereby conferred upon me, except in cases
of imperative necessity, I do, nevertheless,
deem it my duty to make known that I will
not he.-itafe to exhaust tlw power thus ves
ted in the Executive whenever or wherever
it shall become necessary to do so for the
purpose -of securing to ill citizens of th
United States the peaceful enjoyment of
the rights guaranteed to them by the Con
stitution and laws.
It is my earnest wish that pcaca and
cheerful obedwjace to lsw may prevail thro'
out the land, and that all traces of our late
unhappy civil strife may be speedily remov
ed. These ends can be easiiy reached by
acquiescence in the results of the conflict
now written in our Constitution, and by the
due and proper enforcement of equal, just
and impartial laws in every part of our
country. The failure of local communities
to furnish such means for the attainment of
results so earnestly desired. imposes upon the
National Government the duty of putting
forth all its energies for the projection of
citizens of every race and color, and for tlve
tesloration of peace and order throughout

The Schceppe Case.
Some tillie ago a bill rrnrt frnmoA in ill
House requiting the Supreme Court of the
tate to review the lawnd evidence in the
case of Dr. Paul Sohmppe. Thecommittee
to whom it was referred has repotted upon
it adversely. This leaves the case exactly
where it stood alter the prisoner had been
found guilty arid sentence pronounced upon
him, requiring only the appointment of the
day of execution and the signature of the
Governor to bis death warrant to inflict
upon him the extreme penalty of the law.
But it is not probable that he wiil be exe
cuted duriug Governor Geary's term of of
lice. It is n;nv some two years since the
ailcged aiurder was committed, while every
proceiding wh'di, since tlrj trial, has been
had with relerreticu to the case, has etily
sved to deepen the uncertainty vh ether
Miss Stcinecke wui really murdered at all.
The diselination of the Governor to hang
him is as natural as his refusal to paidou
ht.ii is, under the eon. plicated aspects of Mic
case, proper. In the absence of any new
developments, (and investigation appears to
have exhausted itself upon the subject )this
diselination will naturaliy increase w ilh time,
while it is quite certain that his successor
in office will not lie likely to assume a re
spo! sibility which be would not undertake.
It is therefore sale to assume, says the Com
,,crr:(d, that Dr. Schceppe will not be hung
i at all. Neither, unless the fact of his in-
nocenee is established beyond question, does
I it seem desirable that he should be par
j doncd. Ho may neither deserve to be hang
ed nor pardoned, but as the law now stands
J the hands of the Governor are tied, so far
i as any middle course of Action is concerned,
j 13 hanging him be might possibly execute
I an innocent man. and by pa.-donwg him he
I might possibly liberate a guilty one both
j errors, to be nvoided. It seems proper,
j therefore, that tbi Legislature should pass
a law, investing the Executive with discre
tionary powers in this aud similar cases
conferring upon the Governor the power to
com unite death sentences tD imprisonment
for life, or a term of years, according as the
facts in each case might warrant the exer
cise of such clem anew
Connecticut. The initial proceedings
relative to the late election in Connecticut,
in the Legislature, resulted favorably to the
Republicans. The Democracy made an ef
fort to refer the investigation to the Judi
ciary committee and the Supreme court, but
they were outvoted, and a resolution sub
mitting the subject to the Committee on
Canvass was adopted, thus insuring a full
investigation in conneetiou with the errone
ous returns. The Democracy ct ouce raised
the cry of "unconstitutional," upon the an
nouncement of this determination on the
part of the Republican members of the
Legislature. We '.bought this hypocritical
cry was dead long ago, but it seems the De
mocracy still cling to it with as much fervor
as they did in the days ot the rebellion.
