There are Mrera! theories pat forth by different classes of thinkers and pol iticians for the re-coastructioa aad re admission into the Union of the seceded and rebellioaa States. The two extreme views arc, that the Stales named are conquered provinces ia the full meaning of the term, and shoald be treated as - saob; and that they are still Stales in the Union that their acts of secession were illegal and void and of no force hence, that they shoald now resaaae the rights and privileges of States in the Union and the affairs of government. Between these two extremes and em bracing thesa lies the shades of opinion which men eotertain on the subject.

The tables were bountifully spread with eatables in every variety, to which ample justice was done.

Just now tho ten dency of our government, we fear, is to the abuse of this prerogative. A very vicious man is arreted for a known crime. His guilt is beyond question. He sues for mercy of an out raged community. His plea is heard. He, is pardoned. He turns round and repeals life crime, and the innocent suf fer. Or, borne one else, emboldened by his case, and encouraged by the ease with which he escaped, commits a like crime, and when brought to trial pleads the precedent of the other as an argu ment for mercy in his case. In either case, who is guilty of the second crime? Plainly those who exercised mercy to the one at the expense of the s...
