leaders declared that " opposition to the
President was opposition to the Clovern

how much support was .pled trod to the
President by that meeting, nor for what
term it was enlisted. We observe also
that journals and politicians of the fearful
order are agitating themselves over a sup
posed necessity for pledging the support
of Ohio to Iresident Johnson, at the
State Convention, June 21, and over a
division that is to be developed on that
motion. These idea seem to mistake the
nature of our Government, and the rela
tions between the .peoplp and th Presi
dent, and to over-estimate the capacity of
mass meetings and State Conventions.
In this republican Government the
people are called the sovereign, and the
President their-fervant. They engage
him for a term of service. They express
sentiments to guide him. They support
him when his, acts suit them ; not by meet
ings or resolutions, but by electing Rep
resentatives in political harmony with
him. When his acts do not satisfy them,
they turn and vote for Representatives
who will oppose him, or in disgust they
let the election go by default into the
hands of his opponents, and at the end of
ins term of service they choose another
''man. No mass meeting orJ3tate Conren
ition can make them do any-afferent from
this; therefore this support is all that
airy organized body ca pledge to the
Were it otherwise, we should have a
few politicians, for the sake of helping
jtheir chances for the President's official
patronage, binding the people absolutely
, to support the President in whatever he
may do. It is well that they cannot be
bought or sold in that way, for there
would be plenty of traders. The Presi
dent knows that no party or State organic
x&tion can promise lun the support of the
people or pa?ty any longer than while hjs
policy pleases them ; and that when they
pledge him popular support in advance
of measures, and while his policy is yet
experimental, or not clearly developed,
they imitate the free trading of the satan
. ic personam, who proposed to pledjre the
whole world tor a personal eonsid ration,
when he had not a quit title to a foit of it.'
, In absolute monarchical governments,
the subjects bind themseb. es, or are held
bound, to support rulers without condi
tiocs, on the principle that the king rules
bydivin right and is infallible. But
tti is a republican Government, and the
positions of sovereignty and subjection
are reversed. If the people are capable
of their sovereign qSce, they will in their
.mass meetings and conventions express
their opinions on public affairs for. the ad
vice and encouragement of the President,
they will give him the moral support of a
declaration of sound practical principles,
jrith the assurance of their hearty support
as long as he adheres to them. This is
all that any convention can pledge, and
that the President will place any value

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE.
Of all the crimes that disgrace human
ity, slander is among the worst. It is
the robber of character, the destroyer of
virtue, and the enemy of honor". Its
" edge is sharper than "the sword" its
"tongue out-venoms all tho worms of Nile"
its "breath doth belie all corners of.
the world. It is a coward that only!'
takes advantage where the odds are m
its favor, liriug it face to face with an
equal f(e, and it shrinks to its dark den
of venomous tiovls and reptiles. I t is a
creeping, crawling thing that bcsiimcs
whate'er it touches. Impaled innocence
testifies to its guilt, and a Christ crucified
bears evidence of its malignity.
One had supposed that now the wars
wers over, all men would rejoice in the
eomrMipltition of' peace. The rauid n;.
urally turus from scenes of horror to those
inore genial and pleasant in character.
It seems, however, there are some men
" with souls scarce saxtcer deep" who
reject the blessed offerings of peace.
Thev seem determined that the country
shall not have quiet. Of such are these
who control the Sacramento Union. It
is emphatically a a paper of the malig
nant school. It suites upon horrors with
an insatiable greed, and glories in scat
tering them before its 'many readers.
True or false makes little difference, and
either, if revolting, serves alike its pur
pose Southern people find no favor in
its eyes, for it has made up its mind that
" nothtisr good can come out of Nazeretli.'"
A fruitful source for malignant invective
and falsehood is the alleged brutal treat
ment of Union prisoners by the Confed
erate authorities. Let us look ftr a mo
ment at this charge, and see, if guilt
there be. at whose door it properly- lies.

He knew that Sheridan reported " two

been turned out to shelterless starvation.
lie knew that from this Valley and North
Carolina, with which Grant had destroy

barbarous policy was resorted to express

knew that medicines had been made con

icals and rebels.'1 In Saturday's issue of
his paper lie says: AVu think the elec
tion lias deuioii-trated, that military power
is ih- only iiirmi of preserving the ballot-box
from pollution." Aud in another
article, in the same paper, it is said:
conduct is a fitting exponent, it is fair to
t-siune that his speech at rew Hope was
.of the most inflammatory character, and
well calculated to 'induce the very course
by others at the election on Tuesday.
And we are assured that threats were
openly made by others, at the meeting
alluded to, that certain persons would be
prevented from voting, and that force
would be used for that purpose if neces
sary. No wonder that, under these cir
cumstances, the poll of Lincoln county,
on Tuesday, was scarce a third its legal
voters. Doubtless many persons vere
prevented from attending the election at
all, pud for the reasons stated.
That this was the case is very evident
from the oihcial returns received of the
vote of Lincoln. We have satisfactory
evidence that-nearly or quite three-fourths
of the legal voters of Lincoln were op
posed to the proposed Constitution. Yet
the opposite party litis carried tiie county
by a majority of 44. . There are about
2,000 leiral voters in Liucoln. On Tues
day only 770 of thesc'2,(J00 votes, a little
more than one-third, were polled. Of
these, 410 were given for the Constitu
tioik and only 80u" against it ! It is not
within the bounds of credibility that such
a result would, or could have been reached
but for the previous threats made, and
the lawless intimidation to which allusion
has been made. Nobody will for a mo
ment doubt that every one who chose to
vote for the Constitution could havedoue
so without fear of any interruption what
ever. The presumption then is, that all
who wished to do so did vote, and they a

lour ( cmnnttec have had under consideration
various local questions. We are in favor of re
taining our water front end wharf interest as they
have be-m settled by the Onltn Bills, recognizing
the fee of this property in the State, to be admin-
ktered by the wharf commissioners for the purpose
oi bnilurug a sea wail out of the revenues of the
wharves, so that the iulerest of commerce may be
subserved, the rights of the State protected, and
that eventually our port, dock and wharf charres
may be rcductd to the lowest possible figure. AVe
recognize Iha title 1 1 outside lands in the city and
think they should be administered for the benefit
of the people, respecting the equity of those who
bine occupied at'.d improvedin good faith, reserv
ing enough lands for municipal uses, and that the
surplus fbould be disposed of for homesteads to j
those who deire to enjoy them at a nominal price.
the city not to make money in the sale of land.
Believing thit tho best iiitcrL'st of the municipal
government lies in the prosperity of all its citizens,
we aro ia favor of it registry law. so that while
every person legally '"on titled to the elective fran-clii-e
may enjoy it without hindrance, it may pre
vent illegal voting, liookiiigxiipon tho elective
privilege as the most sacred right of a citir.cn, we
think the ballot-box should be guarded by ihe
strictest legislation, and if any person entitled to
vote is too ignorant or too careless to cause his
name to be registered, let the loss of his vote teach
him to be more vigilant in the future. Y.'e are in
favor of legalizing primary elections in order to
prevent fraud, preserve order and Secure a, fair ex
pression at the primary or party ballot. t is iin
4ios:.iblc to anticipate the various measures which
will come before the next Legislature ; nor do we
deem it all important to exact from every candi
date a pledge upon each particular question likely
to nrise. . 4
JleiolretJ. That, sound policy requires that no
Kuropcan Government shall be permitted to con
trol the destiny of tho poople of ilexico against
their will, and that our Oovernnent will carry out
the wishes of the American people by declaring
to tho European Governments that the Monroe
Doctrine will be maintained at all hazards on the
American continent. Tho resolutions were unani
mously adopted. The Committee on Nominations
stated their inability to report, owing to their not
having had time to hunt up candidates, ihe con

Thf. Jewish Sabbath. A Jew could not quit
his camp, his village, or his city on the day of rest.
lie misrht not begin a journey; if going along a
road, he must rest from snndown till the same
event of tbe coming day. He might not carry a
pencil, a kerchief, a shekel in his belt; if he re
quired a iiandkerchicf for use, he had to tie it round
his leg. 'If he ofRnded against one of these rules,
he was held to deserve the doom awarded to tho
vi!e:-t sinners. Some rabbins held that a man
Aught not to change his position, but that whether
he was'standing or sitting when thesbofa sounded,
ha should stand or sit, infmovable as a stone, until
the Sabbath had passed away. It was only in -the
sjnagogue anil the temple, chiefly in the tomple,
that the Jewish, ru'ue could be set at nought. A
law which put an end to gilts and sacrifices in the
temple would have suited tho ehief priests and
nigu priests, ami these emiling Sadduoees tanght
the old sacredota! rule that there was no Sabbath
in holy things. A cripple could nor carry his rug
a mile, a hungry man could not tduck a craiu of
wheat; but the teniplo might be lit, the shew-bread
D&Kea, tue altars might be trunmed and guarded,
the shekels might bo paid in to the receiver, the
devea and heifers might be slain, and the victims
might be burnetii with fire. In the temple courts
the seventh da was tho busiest of all the week,
for on the Sabbath every Jew who made an offer
ing tu Ctpd was expected to present two shekels in
stead of one shekel, two doves iustead of one dove,
and two rims instead of oae ram. T7ie Huh Load
