There have been various conflicting estimates
. in the Southern journals of the probable cotton
supply from the coming crop, varying from 1,000
000 to 2,500,000 bales. The growth of cotton this
year d?pends on many contingencies, and in ma?
king any .estimate of the probable amount that
will be raised, the comparative poverty of tho
planters and the scarcity of labor must enter
largely into-the calculation. Tho Richmond Whig j
says that tho Secretary of tho Treasury estimates ?
the average annual supply for 18U5-C and 7, in the j
United States, at about 1,500,000 bales; the New j
Orleans cotton factors generally agree ia esitima-1

CHANGE IN THE CABINET.
Tho rumor of a change in the Cabinet haa
been generally eh cul a ted, and very recently
it has been asserted that not only'will Mr.
STANTON leave the Department of If ar, but
that his successor has actually bee* deter?
mined OD. There ia, in reference lo this
whole matter, however, a mystery," which the
most astute have not. yet been able ?Hy to
penetrate. There is reason to b?li
Mr. STANTON, Mr. HABLAN, and Mi?
are opposed to the policy of the P;
and, to some extent, have been aotiva. n
teracting it; and why they are hot permitted
to resign, or why not removed, is a question
whioh no one as yet has been able satisfac?
torily to answer. The most probable! suppo
sition is that the Radical party desi io them
to continue, and that the President ha|reaeon
to apprehend, from the present tempe| of the
Senate, that, if removed, those appointed to
succeed them would not be confirmed* This
policy of refusing to confirm appointments by
the President, pending the present controver?
sy, though not yet acted on, so far as jwe are
advised, is clearly indicated; and ios ap?
pointees cannot enter on their offices, io long
as the Senate is in session, without confirma?
tion, it is even supposed that, to continue the
rigor of this discipline upon the President,
the Senate will not adjourn, and -mil not
allow to the Government the services .?f any
officer who may not be agreeable to tb#fo.
This policy will be especially efficient with
respect to the Cabinet. It is understood that
those fjfncers hold on until their successors
ure confirmed, and, by refusing to'rjonfirru
successors, therefore, the Senate can'retain,
ts members of the Cabinet, men who may be
jersonally and' politically offensive jto the
Executive; and, for the reason that they are
o offensive, it is probable, in the .present
tate of feeling, the Senate will ?oealy the
aore especially inclined to exercise that
It is becoming obvious, from our experi
no?? that there ?B a necessity fora-less ertifi
ial government. There must, of necessity,
ie the flexibility to conform to changing cir
umstances. The Government must be ablo,
eben exigencies arise, to go before the peo
^_u un.*i MWryWpWBOlj? it will not,
uffer itself to be ovorruled and defeated by a
Congress that does not represent the public
entiment of the country. The Executive
annot continually act with advisers who do
tot concur in its policy. As the Confederacy
lecomes a Eepublic, and centralization bo?
ornee perfect, the Government must be ad?
mitted to the conditions by which this power
s to bo exercised. In one form or other,
hat central directory, bo it the President, or
>e it Congress, must be individual and su
ireme; and it is not possible that artificial
orms, by which co-ordinate branches of the
iovernment may veto and neutralize the ac
ions of each other, can be permitted - to con
It is possible that that imperial authority
nay yet result to Congress; that if we ever
.ass the present crisis in our fortunes without
i despotism, the Parliament may come to be
ere as it is in England, tho paramount au
Eiority, and that even the Government must
all before a majority of that body. But be
jre that Congress can attain to such position
f majesty and power, it must be effected by
ome condition w,bicu will render it moro cer
ainly the exponent ot' public sentiment. To
he judgment of a Congress called directly
rom the people to tho arbitrament of great
pestions, the President might properly bow.
3ut before he can be called upon to bow to
Congress, he must be able to regard it as the
smbodiment df the public wi??; he must be
ibler to coll from the~people the special rep?
resentatives of their opinion; and, by some
Drocess, this flexibility to public sentiment
nust be acquired, or the Government, through
?orne one of its Departments, must break the
forms around it, and grasp the sceptre of im?
There is, porhaps, no Bubject of more gen
aral interest in tho city than the one that
?tinds at the head of this article. To those
who own real estate it is important, and still
more important, perhaps, to those who do
not : and not long since it was a subject of
more serious concern to tho people of this
city than to those of any other at the South.
Much of our real estate had been destroyed
more than a thousand houses had been
burned-many others had been rendered un?
fit for habitation. It was not expected, in
the depressed condition of affairs, that any
houses would be built, or that all even would
be repaired; and, as the buildings in the city
were not more than sufficient for tho popula?
tion before tho war, and as it was not known
to what extent that population had been di?
minished, it was naturally supposed that thero
would bo a deficiency; and from the solicitude
of persons to securo houses, and tho disposi?
tions of proprietors to make the most of their
Opportunity, at thc beginning of tho season
rents ran up to figures they had never roache'
It i3 evident, however, that this was th
result of much misapprehension. Our popo
lation had been much diminished. Many wh<
had left the city were without the ability o
the inducements to return. Many here wer
without the me?hs to pay the rents exacted
Many were content with rooms ; many havi
been; disappointed in the expectations of busi
ness which induced them earlier in the sea
son to contract for houses ; and the indication!
are, that. by mid-summer rents will be ai
much below the average of former times ai
they have lately been above it. This is nr,i
an occurrence, perhaps, to be desired. Ii
does not indicate prosperity, and it is onlj
when real estate is profitable to proprietor!
that we can expect our burnt districts to be
built. We deem it beet, however, to realize
the fact. Our town cannot expand upon il?
lusions ; we have trust that it will ultimately
rise to even more than its former greatness :
bat it must start again from humble begin
aings, and advance through painstaking pru
lenee and patient labor ; and that the foun
lations of our prosperity may be solid and
mduring, it is best, perhaps, that we should
realize the \ ery depths of depression in which
hey must be laid.
Wo had occasion to speak yesterday of an
irticle in our local column expressing a sen
iment of disrespect and antipathy for certain
jolored troops in the performance of their
nilitary duty. We stated, then, that the publ?
ication was unauthorized and without our
cnowledge, and that the local, reporter,
hrough whose inconsideration its appearance
iccurred, had personally tendered his regrets
o the Brevet Major General Commanding.
Chis was done cheerfully. We bod'int?hded
io offence to the military authorities; we
tad no motive to do so ; we had received
rom officers in command a consideration en
irely respectful ; and, os we had already
andered our regrets to the Commanding
leneral even before wo had known that it
rould be considered worthy of attention, wo
sit no reluctance whatever to disclaim the
urpose of offence. That disclaimer was in
mded td be full and explicit. But we have
jason to apprehend that it was not so re
arded, and, regretting that it was not, wc
wert again tb the subject, in the hope that
ur purpose now, at least, shall be fully and
itisfactorily accomplished. We have ac
jpted military authority, and we have ac
jpted it as frankly as any other feature of
ie situation. Tr?g, we do not desire it as a
ermanent condition, and we hope the time
iay not be distant when that authority ma,
9 safely withdrawn ; but to the officers in
ie exercise of this authority it were but jus- !
z9 to otford the merit of being respectful
' the feelings and interests of our people,
prsoually we have received from them every
insider?!:"11 w0 00uW Jw*?i>ablj ask, We
ive no motive for hostility, therefore ; but
our reelings of hostility to that authority
id been decided, we would have considered
entirely unbecoming to exhibit it in the
rm of contempt for soldiers in discharge of
eir military duty.
)XC RESS IN P VRSUIT OF KNO WLElM. E. \
In the House at Washington on Monday : j
"Mr. Stevens offered a resolution, which was I
looted, requesting thc President to communicate
the House information on thc following points: .
3 how many persons, worth more than $20,000 '
.ch, lie lins "issued special pardons, and what are
icir names ; how much property, real, personal ,
id mixed, seized and forfeited a's enemy's prop- i
ty, has been taken from thc enemies of tho i
Dvernment who claimed to be the original own- i
s, ami whether such persons hud been soldiers 1
thc armies of tho so-called Confederate States,
had been giving aid and comfort to thc enemy;
)w mueli abandoned property that had been
ken possession under thu :ict of Congress, and I
id been allotted to freedmen and occupied by I
icm, has been ordered to be restored to return- 1
g rebels, and tho occupants-the freedmen-dis
accd, stating the particular property thus re
ored, and by whose order tho same was done." fl <
We do not understand that the President is j
any way responsible to Congress for bis 1
rercise of the pardoning power. That por
on of the resolution/requesting him to state
)W many persons worth more than $2(1,000
ich he has granted spacial pardons to, is an j
ipertinent insinuation'that he has been more
beral than was consistent with sound policy,
he insinuation is strengthened by the in- j
lines made upon the points following :
Southern property holders cannot be law- !
illy dispossessed of their property by a gen
ral confiscation law alone. The -law must I
e enforced by^udicial action to become ef- ;
ictive. It is over all, but operates/?pon none
atil the courts render it so by the institution
t special proceedings. Congress may direct
ederal agents to take possession of abandoned
roperty of Confederates, and may make pro
ision by which the title will pass to the
Tnited States, but the title to the General
tovernm?nt can only be perfected by the ae?
on of the courts. In some cases large dis
ricts Save been assigned to negroes, on no
ther authority than the act of Congress and
he. order of a military officer. In all such
istances the titles of the original owners
ave not been affected by the allotment of
heir lands to freedmen. Goneral SHERMAN
nd Secretary STANTON acted upon this sup
losition in assigning for temporary occupancy
he Sea Islands to the freedmen.
The power invested by the Constitution in
he President to grant pardons necessarily in
ludes the power to remit penalties. Confis
ation of property was a penalty attached to
ebellioD. The confiscation act cannot como
n conflict with the pardoning power, because
ho laltor must bo superior. Thc penalty of
ho law is remitted to all to whom pardon is
Tauted. And so perforce of the act pro vi d
Lg for the taking possession of abandoned
iroperty by thc United States. The Govern
ncnt may havo had possession of the prop
irly, and some of i ts officers may have located ?
tegroea on it, but the fee did not pass to thc j
negroes in consequence, and the President not
cnly had full authority to order its return to
original owners whom he had pardoned, but
he was hound, by every principle of honor
and consistency, to make such an order.
While he would be entirely justified in
treating the resolution as impertinent, we
doubt not that he will overlook the offensive
form in which it is drawn-alleging miscon?
duct on his part while pretending merely to
seek information-and answer the inquiries
frankly and fully. Should he do so, we shall
Bee whether the Radicals have gained any?
thing in the passage of the resolution.
