WEDNESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 3, 18GG.
President Johnson and the Radicals.
[Coircspondziic: of the Chicago Tribune-Western Radical
. WASHINGTON, December 19.-In my last letter I roado
allusion to the fact that certain Western members of
Congress had had interviews with tho President 6inco
the passage of Mr. Wilson's resolution, during which tho
subject of reconstruction was freely disrussed, and that
their impressens as to his future course hid not been
very favorable. I confined myself to this g-.ucral state
?nont, as I did not at thc Mme leel at liberty to go into
-?particulars. I now permitted to give the subjoined
full version ol what tonk place on the stated ( ccasion.
Mr. Wilson, with whom frans, straightforward action
in all thums is a leading characteristic, had bc^ n anxious
for some time to lia vc an early, free and full e tchaugc of I
opinion with the President relative to reconstruction, j
He desired ti express his own views upon thc policy
pursued by the Government towards tho rr iel States,
which he knew tn bc identical with thoscof tbjmajority
of tho House, with, the utmost frankness to tue Execu?
tive, and, if possible, elicit from bini a cleav definition
oftholineof action be meant to pursue towards Con-1
cress-whether ho meant to reeo-jnizo tho right ot' Con- I
gress to'determine upon thc mode of reorganizing and
restoring thc rebel sutes to tho Union, according to the :
views of thc majority of both houses, or whether his ?
purpose was to bring the influence of patronago and
other agencies at his command to bear, in order to se?
cure an endorsement and adoption of his own plan of
The passage of Mr. Wilson s resolution by a vote thor?
oughly testing tho sense of a groat majority of thc Houso
upon thc President's Southern policy, on Thursday last,
furnished a proner occasion for tho mutual explanation
ho desired, and" hence ho sought thc White House, in
company with his colleague, Mr. Price, on tho evening
of the same day. The President received Iiis visitors
very cordiallv. and, upon an introductory remark from
Mr. Wilson announcing tho object of their call, invited
them to an unreserved expression of opinions and sug?
gestions. Thereupon Mr. Wilson proceeded to say sub?
stantially as follows:
?JJ"MR. PRESIDENT-You have, no doubt, been inform?
ed of thc resolution I offered to-day in the House and of
tho vote upon it. In explanation of it I wish to say
that neither myself uor tho rest of tho majority voting
fer it are disposed to make any distinction between
Tennessee and tho other States lately engaged in
rebellion in our preliminary examination into their re?
spective claims to representation in Congress. At thc
eame time tho joint Committee of Fifteen may, and pro?
bably will, extend to the former Stato priority of con?
sideration by taking up and disposing of its case first,
and to this the majority will not oppose" Passing from
this special, to the general subject of reconstruction at
largo, Mr. Wilson, continued : "I am aware that there
aro men in Congress, styling themselves 'conservatives,'
that claim to bc your friends par excellence. Now, I do
not hesitate to avow tiiat I am what is commonly called
a 'radical.' I contributed, in my humble way, all I could
to thc success of the party that placed you in power.
Heneo I claim the right to call myself the friend of your
administration. Myself and those acting with mo in
Congress are all friendly to it, and desire its entire
success. But wo think, and with us our constituencies,
that by your plan of reconstruction that result is not
likely to bc attained. Wo hold, at the same time, that
there is one way in which it could be reached. In our
opinion, your efforts to reorganize the rebel States and
restoro them to the Union, after an uninterrupted trial
of somo seven mouths, have not proved successful to tho
extent required to insure the future peace, safety and
prospority of thc country. Congress, in pursuance of
what it considers its solemn duty, now proposes,
after due investigation of the wholo subject, to devise,
If possible, some ?u tter plan of reorganization and res?
toration. The plan Congress will probably adopt will
be to admit such amendments to the Constitution as
will, if accepted by thc Stato Legislatures, furnish ample
guarantees for the future. The majority of Congress ex?
pects and ask that while engagod in investigating ? he
wholo subject of reconstruction and devising some
new plan it may be left freo to act as it may deem
best, and that no attempt be made by the Executive
to interfere with and influence its action by the distri?
bution of patronage or in any other way. If thus left
free by you, there can. bo no possible difficulty between
tho executive and legislative branches of thc government.
But If you aro disposed to intorfero with Congress,
by patronage or otherwise, and forco your peculiar
Ideas and plans upon Coi'gross and the country, you
will meet with serious opposition by those that are now
tho friends of your administration, and desire sincerely
to make it successful. The plan Congress will probably
adopt will not render it necessary for you to surrender
any of your own views in relation to reconstruction.
Inasmuch as under thc Constitution of the United States
yon cannot bc asked to approve tho resolutions of Con?
gress submitting certain amendments to tho Constitu?
tion,- you will not be responsible for our action ; but we
Will be responsible for it to our constituents, who are
called on to determine upon too merits of our plan of
reconstruction. Henci there will be no occasion for se?
rious differences between tho Executive and Congress,
if each branch of the Government simply leaves .'he
other to do what lt conside-s its duty. And let mo add
this: The so-called Cons..; xitlvcs or Congrcnti, thu mon
that claim to be your exclusivo friends, go with you to?
day because they think it is to their advantage to do so;
but they will oppose you to-morrow if they shall find
that it is to their disadvantage to support you. You will
find, in the end, that tho men who differ from you to?
day, from sincere convictions and honest patriotic mo?
tives, are much more reliablo and trustworthy friends
than these time-servers."
The President, in reply, stated that he was anxious to
avoid a division among the friends of his administration
in Congress: that he would regret to sec any difficulties
ariso between them and tho Executive. He then pro?
ceeded to review at length his policy of reconstruction,
reiterating the poiuts in support of it made in his pub?
lished speeches, aud more lately in his Message; but
said nothing that could be construed into au admission
of its failure. Un the contrary, ho seemed to bo fully
persuaded of its present aud future success. Nor did
be say a word indi'-ating an intention to abstain from
interference with Congress in its legislation upon recon?
struction. He did not say that he would interfere; but
neither did he commit himself to the opposite line of
action. However pressod by Mr. Wilson in this direc?
tion, he would uot givo tho assurance desired of him.
That_he|would have made a formal disclaimer of a pur?
pose to meddle with Congress, if ho did not entertain
it, may be fully presumed. And this was the impression
left by the tone and tenor of his remarks upon tho
minds of his visitors.
Tho process of forming an administration party in
Congress, with the "conservative" members of the
Union majority in both houses as a nucleus, and no
doubt the outright opposition as a contingent accession,
progresses steadily. Perhaps tho most significant step
yet taken in it is the holding of sep?ralo caucuses. This
bas been done once, at least, since thc passage of Mr.
Wilson's resolution. The call was for a mooting of the
supporters of the President's policy, for tho purpose of
dousing somo means of ensuring its better success in
Congress, and tho attendance comprised all of the
Union members that had voted against Mr. Wilson's re?
Much earnest feeling has been created among radical
members by the announcement that tho President had
directed certain heads of departments " to make no fur?
ther appointments upon tho recommendations of Con?
gressmen at present." Thc fact of the existence of this
order was communicated by the chief of a department to
some radical Congressmen who had made a request for
a certain appointment. But ono construction is given
to this Executive mandate-viz: that support of tho Ex?
ecutive policy is to be hereafter the price of patronage.
Tho New Tork Herald says:
Tho radicals, who are now clamoring for an amend?
ment to the Constitution changing the representation
in Congress from a population to a voting basis [their
object being to compel the South to make the nogroes
voters], do uot quite rcalize;tho effect of that measure
were itadopted. True, it would largely reduco tho re?
presentation of the Southern States were the negroes
not allowed to vote: but it would also have tho fol?
lowing consequences: 1. It would cut down tho present
and future representation of New England, on account
of the excess of females and old people, as compared
with the Western States. 2. It would deprive the Atlan?
tic seaboard and manufacturing localities of Congress?
men wherever aliens wen largely employed. 3. It
would add very largely to the representation of the West?
ern States, where the male population is largelv in ex?
cess of the fe t ale; and i. It would give a disproportion?
ate representation to California and the mining regions,
where the males are ton to one to tho females. In short,
it would mako the West all-powerful in tho government
almost immediately upon the adoption of the amend?
The Herald's Brownsville correspondent of December
7 states that well informed poople in Mexico think
?i0reT<aKe VT not ovur 15-0U0 troops in the country.
The Liberal! had evacuated Monterey in consequence
of the return of tho French troops from Saltih?. No
fighting had o-.curred. The Liberal army was encamped !
near Camaroo on the 1st of December. Largo amounts '
of money and goods had been taken from merchantsand !
other citizens there. Many Liberal troops oro deserting I
on account of a lack of clothing and other necessaries
Some further correspondence has occurred between
Gen. Weitzel and Mejia.
General Weitzel alleges that General Mejia has on
mere suspicion, imprisoned innocent American citizens
and informs him by direction of General Sheridan that
if such outrages are repeated no apologies for them will
be accepted, and that General Mejia will not bo per?
mitted to commit acts against thc United States which
are no accident, and that tho Government will not ac?
cept his personal apologies for bad faith. General Mejia
daims that the persons imprisoned were found in arms
against the Imperial cause. The Imperial troops are re?
ported to have robbed the citizens of Saltillo by large
sums of forced loans. ^_
SOON after the late war broke out the shipments of gold
from California to the Atlantic seaports dropped from
about thirty-five millions annually to about twelve mil?
lions. All the rest was sent to foreign countries, or
brought East by other conveyance, so aa to escape capture
by the privateers. The tide has again turned, for wc see,
by a recent table of shipments, that $20,5G4,8US have been
sent, by the ?California steamers to New York within the
present year. Thc whole amount sent forward from San
Francisco to thc Eastern States from January 1, 1854, to
December 20, 18C.r.. is $:t77.O80,719. Of course this is not
the whole product for the timo spocified. Much of the
gold is sent to foreign countries to pav for merchandise
and to settle exchanges, and a vast deal more is sent East
by other modes than regular shipment by tho steamers.
In a recent work published at San Francisco, the whole
gold product of the Pacific country since ltJA9 is set down
