We find ihe following special dispatch

special significance is thu fct that it

invited Hion. IH. S. Buudy, member of
the Thirty Ninth Congress from Ohio,

about. Mr. Bundy having long shared
the confidence of the Cief Justice, and
being heretofore his firmi eupporter and
personal friend, accepted the invita

atnd the conspiracy was so apparent that
leadingSenators to-day nlged upon th~e
members of the buard' of' managers to
take immediate eope in the matter. The
managers, howev.r, sai-l that they had
no power to do sQ. They had been
cornmissioned with a 'diuty to perform,
and that ditty had been done, and their
case was in the hanida of the canen. If

?URTH[E.R PROOF OF TU CONSPIRA
Stitt another proof is given to show
,hat, there has been a conspiracy to de.
'eat the impeachment. Senator Hen.

nember of Congress from Missouri, that
to and those other Republicans who
roted to sustain the President had as
urances from Mr. Johnson that if the
mpeachment was defeated, he would
eorganize his Cabinet by making Wm.
4. Evarts, .Secretary of State ; Samuel
looper, of Massachusetts, Secretary of

'i[ RADICAL JKADIERIS OF 1860 AND
1868 CONTnASTED. z
A moment's glance at the present
ituation of the Radical party will serve
o show the contrast between its condi- v
ion in 1860 and 1868. Among the
onspicutous members of the Republican
)on ventioln 6l 1860 we.re such men as
rancis P. Blair, Wm. M. Evarts and
host of others embodying the talent
nd respectability of the Convention ; a
2ajority of whom are now ranked t
mong the most decided opponent) of a
ha Radicals. In the Chicago Conven. v
ion of that year there were four promi- C
ent-condidates for the Presidential nom. c
nation--Lincoln, Seward, Chase and t
lates. Tie last act of Lincoln's life t
was to originate and adopt the policy of
oohnson. Bates abandoned the pres.
lit Radical organfzation before Lincoln
ied ; Seward is an active enemy of'
tadic'ilism, and if there is one man in .
he United States wkom the Radicals of
o.day hate more bitterly than' Andrew
ohnson, that man is Salmon P. Chrse.
'hen Chase, and Trumbull. and Fessen
en, and Grimes, and Doolittle and Dix-t
n, and Stauberry and a host of other c
reat names were in the ranks of the t
tepublicans. Now, they are either J
eting openly with the Demouracv, or
re read out of the Radical party by the a
ot heads who control it. Nor is this
1I that is nottceable, While the states.
nen of the Republican unrty have aban-'
lotted radicalism, the vicious and
reacherous elements of the Democratic
arty have entered its fold. T1hie partyC
vhichi became too corrupt for Chase an'd C
)oolittle, Bates and Evarts, has dlemon.
trated, its affinity for Butler and Logan,
tanton and Dan Sickles. The leaders
f the Radical party to day--the mna
who have Grant in their keeping-w~ere
lamorous for secession in 1860, and r
ustifled the Southern States in resortinlg
o arms to repel tihe exercise of Federal '
ower. Now. Butler, Logan, Stanton
ad Dan Sickies are blatant Radical
lemagogues, and are accorded the high. I
at positions of honour in tihe party that
o recently desnIsed them. Thiey take! ,

A Letter from Gen. Forrest.
NAsivLrr.x, May 15, 1808.
Editors Aulaanch'e :
GNTs: An influence is at work in
this State, as F have discovered since
my recent departure from Memnhia, to
preclude any participation by the late
Confederate soldiers in the coning con.
vent ion of the Democracy of Tennessee,
to be held at Nashville on the 9th of
June, and in the National Democratio
Convention, to be held at New York
on the 4th of July.
It does not amount to a purpose to
arbitrarily do this thing ; but is felt in
efforts to induce in every one who took
atny part in the recent struggle of the
Confederacy for independence to de
cline attending at these assemblies
upon pretended grounds of expediency,
and to submit the representation of
Tennessee at New York to men who
were known to be for the Union.
Upon consultation with many of my
late associates in the war, I have con
cluded to advise against any further po
litical emasculation of ourselves in the
party movements of the State.
We are already sufficiently proscrib
ed in the constitution and statues which
now govern the State, against our con.
sent, the proscription of which have,
through the mendacious hostility of our
legislative enemies, been added to time
and again, until now we barely live uni.
der the accumulated weight of disfran
chisement and oppression. Shall we
superad, by our own action, to those
proscriptions and. exorcisms of ourselves
from all participation in the assemblies
of the State and National Democracy,
and publish to the world a confession
that we are too unworthy to intrude
ourselves into the counsels of the party I?
The National Democratic party, through
its commlittoe, have invited us to take
part in the convention which is to as
semble inl New York on the 4th of July.
It proscribes no test oaths, no qualifica
tions dependent upon the part we have
taken in the late war. but, like a true
constitutional party, it opens its doors
and invites all who may choose to come
without refere'ice to the past. To sug
gest then an answer to, so catholic an
invitation, that we who are the true
representatives of the greater portion of
the constitutional men of the State feel
ourselves unworthy to soil the delibera
tions of that Convention with our pres
ence, would exhibit us in attitude of
servile degradation, that I trust we have
not reached as yet. In this view of the
case, then, it is my advice (given from
a sense of duty, and against a reluctance
which is adverse to any personal display
of myself in a matter of this kind) to all
my comrades to participate in the coun
ty meetings, and to send up full delega
tions to Nashville, on the 9th of June,
composed of good and true men, without
retorence to the divisions which were
made by the war.
The only hope of a restoration of a
good government in this coutry is in the
success 'of the National; Democracy in
the next Presidential campaign. I trust
my late comrades will not, from expe
diency or other motives, absent them.
selves from a participation in the politi
cal exercises which are to result in the
choice of standard bearers, made with a
view to so patriotic and desirable an
end. So far as I am personally con.
cerned, I have no desire to take any pait
in polities, nor to occnpy any political
position wihastever; bult 1(1 do ot wish to
see my State represented by men whose
only claim to public favor is thle dexter
ity with) which they took either side of'
tile question in tile late war, as interest
dictated, and who bank unon it as their
only caipital for popular snipport.
