The.Provisional Governors appointed
by President Johitson for this important
work of restoring the Southern States to
their civil relatidns, on a constitutional
basis, have without exception, approved
themselves singularly. wqll ,adopted to
their positions. Their action, in the first
steps, has, in overy case, been discrect,
temperate nrad conservative, They have
adopted the wise policy of interfering as
little as. possible with those things which
enter into the character, history and in
stitutione of each State, which were es
tablished in other times and are adapted
to existing conditious. - In one direction
they must build anew, and radic*ally, but
in others they find the result of much
valuable work, which only requires to
be left alone. Belonging to the States
which they have been appointed to tem

ernors have entered upon their dtdles
with a knowledge of the people and of
the local laws and necessities which is of
the highest advantage to them, and the
fruits of which have already appeared
in their measures and messages. 'While
unequivocally loyal ii every action and
word, they do not unnecessarily stir up
popular prejudices, or bear about the
mien of conquerors. They all proclaim
unflinchingly, however, that slavery. is

Major General Terrpn, who has just t
atrived in tlis city frim the Militvry. Di;
vision of the Gulf, gives its some inform. 4
tion which will *correct an error that is -v
' :nerally, if not universally, prevalent t
throughout the North. It is in rela' t
tion to the removal of late Conft-derate d
soldiers to Mexico, with tho intention of t
taking part in the contest by which that
-unfortunate country is still distracte.d.
Being just from Shreveport where lie re.

Instead of the seven or eight, thous

Their purpose, as well as their leader's,
was to join not Maximilian, as has been
reported, but Juarez and te liberal
cause. Missourians' and men from se
ceded States, will not exceed a few hun.
dred in number, all told. Like the
former, they iesigned to cast bheir
swords into th scale against Maximil.
ian, and the French. and Austrians con
tingents by whom he is supported.
This, he says, is the purpose of all con
federates who hIs ve s6ught or may seek
a hand in the m litaryalffairs of Mexico.
Their motive in siding with tho liberal
party is one of Cie resentments towards
Louis Napoleon, who so grievously dis.
appointed their hopes of intervention
against the United States in the contest
from which they have just emerged. - A
partial revenge, they -now.think, is at.
tainable by expelling his protege from t
Mexican soil, and they will do their best
to bring about such a result. Others 1
