Martin Lipeoomb's Convention 1 That distinguished eltiien, Martin Mkrkpith Lipscomb, late undertaker to bury the Federal dead, has taken charge of the unconditional V uion men of Virginia, and gathered them in Convention at Alexandria for the purpose of performing t hose funereal ceremonials preceding the death and the artistic burial of the member* thereof. Martin has for his perquisites the movables found upon the bodies of the deceased ; but wo fear he will not make much, Tlis colleagues from this city will be sure to dispose of all available* before his time comes. By the way, Martin is the only delegate from Richmond u native and to the manner born," and bad at that. He says there are not ten Union men in Riehmond and Henrico; and it is not surprising that as undertaker he should endeavor to And a larger body of the men whom it has become hi- duty to sec decently inferred. Certainly he could not make a snpjwrt in looking after ten, and most of those from the granite liillj of New Kngland, whose tenacity of life is not much inferior to that of money. Mr. Botts succeeded the accomplished and gentle Warmvi.ll us chairman. In his address he soon imparted his old story of the treachery of other people in deserting him and leaving him bravely to battle for the grand principles of Constitutional Liberty which lie espouses! lie confessed that there was some Union sentiment in < ulpepcr; but ho was the only man iti that county who had the boldness to be seen in that convention. There is a compliment in that, either to Culpeper or to the convention! But we do not know that tinworld need take umbrage at the fact that there are hardly a baker's dozen in it that have the boldness, the hardihood, the unquailing impudent intrepidity to do what Mr. Botts doe*. Vet it is a happy tiling for Mr. Boris that lie is profoundly impressed with the wisdom and justice of all that he conceives and does, and that the being left so often in woeful minorities of unconsidered persons, in no wise wounds his self-conceit or reduces the volume of his garrulity. A thousand times would a man less fortified in his self-suflieiency ? less under the profound conviction that he was the epitome of all knowledge and all wisdom?have been so completely shut up that he would never again have opened his mouth. But such a man is not Mr. Boris. It is a matter of concern to some of his I ?est friends that he has of late perpetrated indiscretions so much in excess of any that marked his previous life that he is really a little touehed ? a little flighty ? or, to speak most delicately, slightly erratic. Some have gone so far as to style him the late Mr. Botts, under the extravagant 1 assumption that he is won wiiqujs. This is ! extravagant. But it might be well, never- ' less, for Martin to look after him, and take j care of Revenue. Horace Mavvard was kind enough to j praise General Lul's father by way of consoling the General for sending him down to posterity with a millstone about his neck. Horace is very obliging. The General can never forget him. A compliment from him would have almost broken the old hero's heart. But his censure is delightful. It was the most agreeable thing said in the convention. The deliberations of this body have about as much weight and chance of success as would a political scheme of the lunatics of the asylum at Staunton. Indeed, the lunatics would be far more ptactical, because not at all malignant not at all animated by the corrupt lust foi office and emolument. The people of Virginia would infinitely prefer the govern, luent of the lunatics to these unconditional malignant*. But it is all idle even to talk of them. ' They are among the most inconsiderable , and unprevailing of things. Clouds, mist, mirages, empty noises, are potential in comparison. Mart ix Lirsco.Mii will be Presfdent of the United States before Mr. Botts is Governor of Virginia. Bury them gently, Martin, but bury them deep, especially Lkwis McKknzik. He is ( so tldgetty it will be hard to keep him still even in the grave.

Well Done! General Howard has ordered the arrest of the officers of the Freedmen's Bureau in Virginia and North Carolina recently reported by Generals Steedman and FulLeeton as guilty of malfeasance in office. So we learn from the Tribune , which was no doubt authorized to make the announcement. But how do those arrests comport with the General's assurance to the public in his last letter that stories prejudicial to to the character of his subordinates were not to be relied upon ? Does he intend to "whitewash" his pets ? We shall see. Dr. Newton's Theory and Practice. Under this heading the New York TribuM gives some account of a recent exhibition iu that city by one Dr. Newton, who professes to heal disease by the "laying on of hands." His proceeding was so extraordinary? -so much more bold, impudent, and blasphemous than that of any of his predecessors among spiritualists ? that *e nuke a note of it as one of the events in the uorth. It would be astounding, had j not the people of this age seen so many wonder! ul, so many impudent, so many villainous things and acts, that they could hardly be astonished at anything. This Dr. Newton announced in the opening of his exhibition that " healing by " touch aud will-power was not new; but " the same as that ichich Jeki? a .id his dU>cU 1 "pies used" I After that, of course the j reader may be ready for anything, lie maintained that faith was the controlling influence, and " whoever has faith that " he can cure humanity of its ills, will ! " succeed in the degree of his orderly life j "and love for suffering man." He should rather have said his "purse " ! lie went on to describe the process of touch, how it was as sensible to himself as to the pa. tient who receives the shock, lie imparts. He believed he " was assisted by the angel* in healing." He stated that the gar. rueuts of persons were brought him, and he took tiiein up one after another as ra. pidly a* he could handle then), and told " the condition of those who wore them " ! Catfrauling these garments, he pronounces, as tke case may be, ** she Is not sick " ; to another be imparts a shock, and says,

" they are healed " ; anotltrr, 44 bruken limb" ; another, Bent fbr a test, "no disease"; another Is cured of fVrar ; another, deafhes* ; another, lameness ; and ?oon. The reader will conclude by this time we have a honevful rascal ; but let him further develop himself: J)r. Nkwtok says lie can cure at any I distance, 44 through the presence of garments or the invalid's friends"! Did not like to cure by 44 hair " as well as garments. 1 (No doubt preferred the "pocket " to nil !) ' lie called uj?on those suffering pain to ( stand. Fifteen or sixteen arose. He shocked them, and some said they were .suffering with headachc, and the pain had left them. AH who were afflicted with j disease were invited to come forward. A hundred or more advanced ; he ini]>orted ' the shock, ami declared them healed. An elderly woman, sitting behind him, while j he was busy, touched his garment, lie instantly turned and said: 44 All right, madam ; your faith ha* healed you" ! ! It is needless to continue this notice ; further. Nor docs it need comment, j further than to say that this miserable and : blasphemous swindler had large audiences, i and deluded very many into the belief that i he not only could, but did cure them. _____ I JrixiK Arkll'h Opinion ifon tiik Civil Kniiirs Bill. ? We published a telegram | some days ago stating that Judge Arkll, ' of Louisiana, had pronounced the Civil 1 Rights act to be unconstitutional. We have since received the Judge's opinion in ! : full, and we lay it before our readers this morning, lie not only pronounces the act . unconstitutional, even if it was ever passed in a constitutional manner by Congress, but he decides that the bill was not so passed. We commend the opinion to the j reader's attention. , Seventj-lirM Annual JIooUiik ol I lie ( Council ol llio Protectant i:|>isco|?aI , j < 'hu re li of Virginia. f Fr<?i? onr own lleporicr.] SECO.ND DAY. Alexandria, May 17, lfctiG. The addresses delivered in the commit, tee of the whole last evening were deeply interesting, especially with reference to the freediuen, whose new relation to t lie j church and the country was the subject of j frequent reference by the several speak ers. All save one concurred in the opinion that this class were generally docile, tractable, and anxious to join the Kpisco. ; pal Church. The ministers from Richmond and Petersburg spoke in most favorable terms of the freediuen. Divine service is held three times daily at St. Paul's Church, and large numbers attend. Rev. Mr. Peterkin, of Richmond, will preach to-night at St. Paul's, and Rev. Mr. Cosby, of Petersburg, will preach at j Cirace Church. It is not known whether the case of Christ Church, in this city, now in charge ; of a Rev. Mr. McMundy, of Kentucky, who came here during the war, will be brought before the Council or not. Rev. C. Walker, 1). P., the rector of that church, is here, and, with Mr. Cassius F. Lee, represents it in the Council. Mr. Walker is unable to get possession of his church, as Mr. McMundy refuses to give it up, and it is said will not retire until the civil courts decide that he is not entitled to hold on. Bishop Johns does not recognize Mr. McMundy as the rector of the church. The proceedings of to-day were preceded by the usual divine services, Rev. W. N. Pendleton officiating. The Secretary read ! the minutes of yesterday; after which, tinfollowing additional lay delegates were re- ! ported : James Gait, S. .T. Campbell, E. C. Mar- : shall, 1). S. Walker, Dr. J. R. Purdy, Wil. 1 liani lSl.d?, Dr. T. H. Clagett, Dr. T. 11. i i Kinney.

Claret t, Kev. A. Meredith, James Gait. A resolution in regard to Christ Church, Norfolk, and which 1 have before explained, kvas referred to a committee consisting <>l Revs. (i. 11. Norton and J. T. Clark, and Mr. William Blair and Dr. J. K. l'urdy. Bishop Johns then presented his annual report. It is a most interesting document, jiving a hrief synopsis of his own labors j luring the past year, the spiritual condi- j lion of the Church in Virginia, and making important suggestions in regard to mea- i sures for the future welfare of the Church. He favors the reunion of the Diocese ol Virginia with the General Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church of the j United States. 1 1 is recommendations in | regard to the negroes are judicious, and ; will receive the earnest attention of the ! Council, who will doubtless instruct the j Diocesan Missionary Society to make the religious culture of the negroes a distinct | branch of their operations. After the report was read, Mr. Cassius F. Lee, of Alexandria, offered the following resolution, which was seconded by Kev. John Grammar, of Halifax county: Whereas the causes which rendered I necessary a separate organization of the southern dioceses no longer exist, and that organization has ceased by the consent and action of the several dioceses concerned, t herefore lieMilued, That the Diocese of Virginia now resumes its former ecclesiastical rela- j lions as a diocese in connection with the; General Convention of the Protestant 1 Episcopal Church iu the United States, And that the Bishop is requested to send a certified copy of this preamble and resolu- j lion to the Presiding Bishop and to the 1 Secretary of the House of Clerical and Lay Delegates. Kev. G. A. Smith moved that the subject be referred to the next annual Coun. cil. Key. C. Colton moved the following as a Kubstitute l'or Mr. Lee's resolution : Unsolved, That so much of the Bishop's address as relates to the resumption by the ?XT of.,Virginia of its former relations with the Protestaut Episcopal Church of the United States, together with Mr. Lee's resolution, be referred to a committee of three presbyters and three lavinen, to report alter the recess of this uiorniug, or as soon as practicable. The subject was discussed at some length, and the Council, being impressed with the importance of the matter under consideration, spent a short time in special prayer ; after which a tecess was taken to attend divine services. When the Council resumed its business, Sir. William T. Grajr, of Richmond, was I

?anointed treasurer of Ibc Diocewin Missfimary Society. Tbe preamble nn?l revolutions under consideration before the r&ccss were then taken tip, and a long debate ensued. Rev. Messrs. C. W. Andrews, W. N. Pendleton, John Cole, J. Grammar, C. Minnigerode, Phillip Slaughter, Mr. 11. F. Garrett, and others advocated the union with the Church of the United States, and Rev. T. P. Man. ry and Rev. J. S. Hansbrough opjjosed it. The whole subjcct was finally referred to a committee of Rev. Messrs. W. N. Pendleton, W. II. Kinkle, C. Minnigerode, and Messrs. John Page, B. F. Garrett, and F. T. Strihling. The committee oti the tenth canon reported in favor of the proposed amendment, and their report was adopted. The following resolutions, oirercd by Rev. C. Colton, were adopted : Resolved, That so much of the Bishop's address as relates t <? the Missionary Committee and the Missionary Work of the Diocese be referred to a committee, to consist of three presbyte rs and three laymen, to report as soon as practicable during the present session of the Council. 7 fcWtW, That so much of tla^^jsl i<>p's address as relates to the wotl^if the Church among the colored pcuple of the diocese be referred to a committee, to report as early as practicable during the present session of the Council. The Council then adjourned. S. Important Decision in Regard to the Civil RIghts Bill In New Orleans. We clip from the New Orleans Crescent of May 10th the following very important decision on the Civil Rights bill, which was rendered by Mr. Justice Abell, of the First District Court of New Orleans: State of Louisiana vs. E. Dewees), P. Nelson, et al. First District Court- Charge , "Burglary." This is a rule upon the attorney-general of the State and the district attorney of the parish to show cause why this case should not be transferred to the District Court of the United States for the Eastern District of Louisiana, there to be tried and determined. There are eleven charges of burglary against these prisoners, and as they involve the same consideration, they may well be decided at once under the present rule. This application rests upon the construction to be given to an act, purporting to be an act of Congress, approved the day of ----, 1866, entitled an act to protect all persons in the United States in their civil rights, and to furnish means for their vindication. This rule involves grave considerations : first, is there such an act of Congress ; second, if there is, is it constitutional; and third, if there be such an act, and it constitutional, have these parties brought themselves within its provisions. The act relied upon, not having received the signature of the President, rests for its validity upon the second clause of section seventh, first article of the Constitution of the United States, which declares that "every bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate ; shall, before it becomes a law, be presented to the President of the United States; if he approve, he shall sign it: if not, he shall return it with his objections to the House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the objections at large on their ' journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If, after such considerations, two-thirds of the House shall agree to pass the bill, it shall be sent, together with the objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by twothirds of the House it shall become a law." The first clause of section three, article | first of the Constitution, clearly defines what constitutes the Senate of the United States in these words: "The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State chosen by the Legislature thereof for six years, and each Senator shall have a vote." The term Senate, as used in this section, is convertible and synonymous, as used in the Constitution, with that of "House," used in section seven, and means the entire body, in contradistinction to "members present," as will clearly appear from the fifth clause of section three, which declares that the "Senate shall have the sole power to try all impeachments; when sitting for that purpose, they shall be on oath or affirmation. When the President of the United States is on trial, the Chief Justice shall preside, and no person shall be convicted without the concurrence of two-thirds of the members present." In this case two-thirds of the members may remove [the President]. The same power could have been granted to two-thirds of , the members present to make a law over , the veto of the President. The law-ma-king power is high- and transcendent, and it is not of reason that the trainers of the Constitution intended to vest such a power in "two-thirds of the members present," which may be less than a majority of the Senate, as in the present case. Such a

construction would shock ti republican people and inipeacli the wisdom of the founders of the Government. If my premises and conclusions be correct, the Civil Kights bill never became a law. If 1 am incorrect, is the law constitutional? This depends upon the powers conferred upon Congress by the several States to regulate their internal and do. mcstic affairs. If Congress has exceeded these powers, the law is unconstitutional and not binding upon the courts of the country. The States, at the time of confederating, were independent sovereignties. They surrendered a portion of their sovereignty to the Federal Government. The rights surrendered are defined and fixed by charter (the Constitution), and the remainder are reserved in the States ! and the people. The founders of the Government, jealous of encroaehmcnts either by construction, usurpation by the Federal Government, or control of faction, at the first session, first Congress (March, 178!),) proposed two! amendments on this subject-matter, which were ratified by the States. The ninth and tenth articles of the amendments re- J ferred to, read as follows : "Article 9. The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not con- 1 strue to deny or disparage others retained i by the people. "Article 10. The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively or to the people." The Constitution of the United States and the laws of Congress made in pursuance thereof is the law of the land, and binding on all the courts of the States; but in order to be binding, Congress must be restricted to its delegated powers. The j right to try and punish the inhabitants of the individual States, of whatever race or color, ibr offences committed by one inhabitant of a State against another, and to preserve the general police and good order of the State, was never delegated to Congress, and is of the reserved powers enumerated in amendment ten of the Constitution, which I repeat : " The powers not dolegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." The Federal Constitution and the laws made in pursuance thereof is the paramount law, and while the Federal Government moves in its own sphere, is not only paramount, but, like to the sun in the firmament, is the centre of power and attraction to the family of States. They, too, in their spheres are as independent as the stars are of the sun, from which they borrow their brightness. Unrepresented Louisiana, pationt in suffering, is devoted to the Constitution and iuws, but will never consent to lay her so

vcreignty at Uic feet of Federal encroachments, jwirty violence, or factious tisurpat Ion. The "Civil Rights bill " has boon passed tjpou by a great constitutional lawyer, statesman, and patriot, Andrew Johnson. He speaks like tin* fathers; be decided it unconstitutional, and vetoed it as Presi- i dent of the United States. 1 am of the same mind, nnd believe it to be unconstitutional ? not binding on this court. In reviewing the "Civil Rights bill" I ! have discharged what I believe to be my ! duty to the State, by withholding the ju- j dicial sanction of this court to a bill that appears to aim at the striking down the j independence of the States, to sap the i foundation of republican government, ; override the laws of the State, and to obliterate every trace of independence of! State judiciary by disgraceful, servile ends. The prisoners, both negroes, claim a transfer under au act of Congress known as the Civil Rights bill. The first section declares that "all persons born in the United States, and not subject to any foreign power, excluding Indians not taxed, are hereby declared citizens of the United , States, and such citizens, of every race j and color, without regard to any previous! condition of slavery or involuntary servitude, except for punishment of crime, whereof the party has been duly convicted, j shall have the same right in every State j .ind Territory to make and enforce contracts, to sue and be sued, be parties ami j give evidence, to inherit, purchase, lease, , sell, hold and convey real and personal j property ; and to be entitled to full and j equal benefit of all laws and proceedings 1 for the security of person and property as i is enjoyed by white citizens, and shall be , -subject* to like punishment, pains and penalties, and to none other, any law, statute or ordinance, regulation or custom, to the contrary notwithstanding." These prisoners enjoy, under the laws of this j State and the practice of this court, every j right and privilege that any white man in the Government of the United States could or would have, and are subject to no other penalty. What more did the Cramers of the bill demand ! Admitting, for the purposes of this rule, 1 that the Civil Rights bill is a law, it is in | no manner violated, and this court is without power to transfer, or the United States Court's jurisdiction to try, the prisoners. If they fear impartiality in this court and jury, the remedy is in an application tor a , change of venue, under the act of the Ge- j neral Assembly relative to criminal proceedings, approved 14th of March, ( which, upon showing, would be as readily granted to these prisoners. The same leg;il right belongs to Dewees. This rule appears to me to be without merit, and has no law in it ? let it be discharged. My admiration for the wisdom and ex- , cellcnee of the bar leads me to wonder why members of it would bring a rule so utterly groundless and mischievous as the present one seems to be. It is well calculated to excite the negroes of the country to the false belief that they are denied the benefit of the laws. It is also calculated to furnish a pretext ( to set upon the heels of your fellow-citizens i the host of man-catchers enumerated iu the sixth section of the" Civil Rights bill." 1 congratulate the citizens of Louisiana upon the fact that nothing more than a mere pretext can be afforded, as the laws I of the State afford the free negro every ! right in a court of justice that is awarded to a white man. j The whole matter appears to be one of those fanatical spa>ms which seizes the minds of certain individuals because the negro cannot be elevated above the white race. I am at a loss to know what sympathy is due particularly to these prisoners, who are charged with eleven burglaries.
