GOV. VANCE AND AMNESTY.
Pending the passage of one of the bills
granting amnesty to individuals named
therein, iu the House Representatives
last week. Speaker Blame called atten
tion to the fact the nam of Gov. Yaxce,
of North Caroliu was inserted iu one of
them contrary to the exceptions agreed
upon by members. The following col
Mr. Shobci I do not ksow by whose
authority the namereferred to was insert
ed in the bill, but the gentleman in ques
tion does not come withia the category
to which the Speaker refers.
The Speaker Has he not been a
member of Congress ?
Mr. Shober He was a member of
Congress, but he did not resign his seat
to take part in the secession movement.
The Speaker That is sot the point.
The questiou is whether while he was a
member of Congress be vitbdrew there
from and aided the rebelliou.
Mr! Shober He did not withdraw
until on the 4th of March, lbCl, his term
expired, and he was a candidate for re
election at the time North Carolina sece
ded from the Union.
The Speaker The Chair is misinformed
then, as to the precise facte of the case.
'1 he disposition of the lloase has beeu
and is most generous, and the Chair has
been extremely anxious that this might
not be abused.
Mr. Shober I presume some one of
my colleagues inserted the natno of Gov.
Vance in the bill in the spirit which tho
Chair seems to intimate.
'Iho Speaker The Chair is entirely
uniniorma wuai gentleman put u in.
Mr. Wadde!l I desire to say one word
as 1 am one of the North Cariltua deLe
galion here. I do not know who insert
ed tho name of Mr. Vance; whoever did
insert it in the bill has not, so far as I
know, violated any understanding, tacit
or otherwise, of the House. Th House
has instructed the Comtnunicalian on the
Judiciary to report an amnesty bill.
The Speaker The Chair does not de
sire argument upon that point. The ques
tion of amnesty is hot now before tho
Mr. Waddell Mr. V.nce, however ob
noxious he may be personally to gentle
men, does not come within the provision
of the law. He did not withdraw fioin
his seat iu Congress and take part in the
rebellion. His term had expired, aud he
was a candidate for re-election at the
time the State seceded.
The Speaker The gentleman well
knows that hadjt been stated yesterday,
whon a call for aucneaty bills was made,
that the name of Mr. Vance was included
it would have elicited discussion and ob
jection iu the House.
Mr. Waddell I do not know that it
worfld b.iVH defeated the. bill at all.
In the afternoon Mr. Leach rose Lo the
following personal explanation :
Mr. Leach Upou coming into th
Hall this rroruing, after the House had
met, I was infoimed by my colleagues

name of Governor Z. B. Vance, of Nortl

it was stated by yourself,' Mr.. Speaker,
as I' understand, that yoii" were sorry the

and I did it in view of wliat I thought to
be the duty that, involved tapr, rue . -

ujemuer ox mis. JJ.OUSQ.,
It is a fact known, I suppose, to the
whole House that Governor Vance is not
one of those excluded by any rule or vote,
of this House. He was a member of Con
gress with me before the war, and we
remained here meting and voting as Ua
lon men until the expiration of our terra
and the inauguration of the late lamented
This House has, by three-fourths or
four-fifths majorty, psscd uot less than
four or five bills removing th. disabilios
of Governor Vanco. More than tbat, sir,
his relief is recommended Ly ex-Gov
Holden, of North Carujiim, ad also, f
h ive understood, bvthe msr i,t fi
Govj Caldwtll ; and 1 believe all five of
tne itepublicau Judges of the Supreme
Court of my State. In addition to that,
the Leg.slatureT of North Carolina, cm
bracing one bnodred and seventy mem
bers, and. containing a large Republican
minority, passed, with but nine or Uu
dissenting voUs, a resolution which was
ent to ttHs Congress askin? for th re.
moval of tha disabilities of Gov. Vance.
lliese, sir, are facts which r
record : and I take
nd here that those who L-mw ...

man or of taking any improper ad vautage

Now, sir, as this House had passed
everal bills for the ruuuval f th de
bilities of Gov. Vance, and a h n. t
embraced iu the classes which have been
excluded In the general bills, 1 had a
got to present ins namv in the manner

with whom 1 am well acquainted, would
be the last man in the world to havn hi'
name sunding iu a bill as an obstaclo to
the removal of the disabilities of anybody
In the simplicitv of mv nature, in the
lonesty of my heart, with a sinccre'nur-
pose lo do what I thought right, and what
i uiougtit justified by the bills which this
House paused last spring and again last
winter, and 1 believe again this spring by
four-fifths majority for the removal of
Gov. Vance's disabilities, I introduced his
name in the bill presented yesterday ; and
in doing so I do not understand that I

In England an acre of the cultivated
root is said, by tha firm referred to, to
command cClOO. The root is also impor
ted by the United States from Spain,
Italy, Sicily, Franc, and Russia, but
chiefly from th two first named.
En;crtaining tbe opinion, after some
investigation, ibat the root can be suc
cessfally cultivated iu several of the
Southern and Wcsteru Suite, Messrs.
Meoler Sc Rittcnhousa consider that new
industry may be fostered, relieving us of
the necessity of importing a valuable and
indispensable product. The root 1 worth
from five to ten cents per pound, accord-!
ing to quality, and three pounds will yield
one pound of the extract. In addition to
the. yield of extract, the crushed and pow
dered root s applied to various minor
uss. Messrs. Meeler !c Rtttenhouse at
tribute the decreasing importations io the
statement above made from the Bureau
of Statistics, to the high tax on ping to
bacco, in which the extract is used, and
a discrimination in favor of fine cut chew
ingj the tax on which is about one-half
that on ping tobacco.

subjtct of introducing the culture of the
root into this country wwc submitted by
