NEWS BY LAST NIGHT'S MAIL.
From our exchanges rocoived last night wo make
tho following clippings:
[Special Correspondence of the Ballimore Oatctte.]
Washinoton, November 20, 1800.- Thero can bo
no doubt that if the counsels of Mr. Stevens should
prevail at the coming session tho most violent
mensuren will bo adopted in respect to tho South.
It is known that ho favors Ino most extreme
courso, both as to the unrepresented Stato? and
President Johnson, lie is free in his avowal of u
?irofercnce for an immediato impeachment of tho
'resident, and a suspension of his functions,
ponding a trial. His plan also oin braces au amend
ment of tho act of 1792, providing who shall lill
tho Executive o (lice, in case of tho "removal,
death, resignation or inability to discharge its
duties, both of the President and Vicc-Prosiuont,"
so that the President of tho Son- to, Speaker of tho
IIouso or other dosiguatcd "officer" may bo ouo
blod to hold tho position until tho expiration of tho
term: in other words, dispensing with an interven
ing ("lection. As respects tho lato appointments of
the President, his scliomo has been made known to
you, aud I now learn that ho proposes to reduce the
ten unrepresented States below tho condition of
Territories, by institutingGovornmonta therein, to
bo administered by functionaries to bo appointed
by CongrosB. thus ontiroly ignoring, not only the
existence of ten States of this Union, but tho
Fcdoral Executive. AU tho dispatches to tho
papers at tho North purporting as yot to givo tho
viows of "leading Republican Congressmen" "hath
this extent, no moro"-thoy have this origin ex
clusively in tho Bobosperian Chamber on Capitol
HU?. That thoy are views of a majority of either
Hoime of Congross, much loss that they would
command a two-thirds vote, I do not boliovc. and
I havoyet to soo an intelligent man who does.
The better opinion seems to bo that a scrioun ef
fort, and ono promising results, will bo made at an
early day, perhaps aftor tho turill" and other hills
of a kindred nature shall havo been passed, by
really influential mon, North ani South, to adjust
existing difficulties, upon a basis recognizing tho
sensibilities of both sections. It has boon sug
gested by a ltopublican member hero that a dis
tinction may very well bo inado botwoou Stato and
Fedoral officos in determining tho question of
sufirago, the status of tho Senate, and the modo
of its oloction, remaining by the inhibition in tho
fundamental law, boyond constitutional tinkoring.
Tho ProBident'fl plan, by means of a convention of
all the States, to amend tho Constitution so aa "to
lot representatives bo apportioned to tho States
according to the number of votors, and diroct taxes
be loviod in proportion to property," may aleo como
up for grave thought. However all this mavbc,
it is evident that tho country at largo, without
reference to party, is becoming restive, and will
shortly demand a settlement ot some eort-which
(however attempted), if it auBwerB no othor good
ond, will at least present tho real issue before tho
people in a light not to bo misunderstood, when
.lie final rosult cannot bo doubted.
I leam to-day that Mr. Greeloy, of tho Now York
rribuno, and tho probablo successor of Mr. Harris
n the United States Senate, has of late, in an ox
enaivo correspondence, advised the "Union" citi
-ons, BO-callou, of tho border and Southern States,
jreatly lo moderate their demands upon Congress,
mil to forogo altogether thoir attempt to govern
n thoir StateB respectively by a system of pro
icription and test oaths. Ho remind.?, them (what
uiivorsal history provos) of the utter impractico
lih ty of an insignificant minority governing an in
olligont majority by mero fraud and forco, for any
onsiderable time, ana instances tho rccont result
if the elections in Maryland as confirmation "strong
.8 proofs of holy writ" of his viows.

A GERMAN MANIFEST?.
Tho Neue Deutsche. Zeitung of Stuttgart, and
other liberal journals in Germany, publish a
manifesto signed by Karl Blind, recommending
tho ostablishniont of a Southern League. The
manifesto, which is snid to express tho viows of
a number of exiles, demands tho convocation of
ono Constituent Assembly for Wurtomlmrg, Ba
den, Hesso and Bavaria, and the introduction of
tho Swiss militia system. The author explains that
on tho ground of unity, of liberty, of internation
al friendship and of Gorman defonco, it ?b desi
rable that those southern populations should
form, for the timo being, a confodeiacy of their
own. Tho Democratic organs strongly approve of
this London manifesto, whilst it ia attacked by the
adherents of Count Bismark'a policy. On No
vember 11th a mooting of many influential lenders
of Southern Germany will bo hold at Stuttgart, to
treat of tho qucBtion of confederacy. Some parts

rendor its publication p?Bsiblo in prcsenco of the
law on tho press. Referring to tho dangore which
seem to threaten Belgium and Switzerland, the De
