TUE NEW GERMAN PARLIAMENT.
The several States of North. Germany that
j have entered into a league with Prussia have
j been asked to appoint plenipotentiary delegates
to ? Conference that is to dra^v up a Constitution,
j to be laid before Parliament. This Conference
is to be under thc direction of thc Prussian
Premier, who, it is now said, is not able him
I self to attend to these severe duties, and will
be represented by DE SAVIGNY, the late Am
I bassador of Prussia at Frankfort. After these
preliminaries have been agreed upon, the for
I mal opening of thc new Reichstag is to take
place on the first of February next. All Gcr
1 many is looking forward with the greatest anx?
iety-mingled hope and fear-to the transac?
tions of this body, inasmuch as thc success or
failure of thc bold policy of BISMARCK is to be
determined by the result of these parliamen?
It is not to be concealed that there is a very
large party in Germany, as much opposed now
to thc policy of Prussia as they were a year
ago, when BISMARCK shut up the Prussian
Chambers and turned the Deputies out of doors.''
Thc pomp and [circumstance of war, the facti?
tious glory of a successful military campaign,
cannot, blind them to the true interests of the
people. In their eyes the King of Prussia and
his Minister President, the Count OTTO VON
BISMARCK, still represent the Junkerthum, thc
feudal, reactionary, ultramontane party-op?
posed to the first principles, almost, of civil
liberty, as this term was formerly understood
in the United States, when "the Constitution of
our Fathers" was still the supreme law of the
That Prussia defeated Austria unquestion?
ably reflects credit on the arms of the former
country; but when it is considered that the bel?
ligerents were of one blood, one nation, one
kindred, and one tongue, that they had garri?
soned the same forts, side by side, during fifty
years of peace, and only two years ago fought .
shoulder to shoulder against a foreign foe-we
may perhaps think that, in the end, when view?
ed in regard to their true bearing on the in?
terests of Germany, these victories were too
! dear bought. Wooden statues and cypress
arches would be more appropriate than bronze
or marble, or laurel wreaths.
A great Prussia is not necessarily a great
Germany, especially when this Prussian great?
ness is largely based upon its military estab?
lishment. We have already seen in the recent
Prussian circular to the Confederate States,
that their armies are to bc entirely under the
control of the King of Prussia, and the ap?
pointment of every commissioned officer must
be ratified hy the said King WILLIAM. This,
of course, at once wipes out all those North
German States, and to all intents and purposes
makes them as much part of Prussia as Frank?
fort or Hanover, which have been formally an?
nexed. Nevertheless, Prussia is a constitu?
tional monarchy, so-called; and Germany is to
have a Parliament, and the King of Prussia's j
Ministers will have a Constitution all ready for '
the people's representatives, who are thus sav?
ed the trouble of laboriously and painfully
working out one for themselves. The delegates
will have nothing to do but sign their nantes.
They had best not propose any constitutional
amendments. King WILLIAM has no fondness
for practical jokes.
We find it difficult to map out the work for
this new Parliament, seeing there is so much
already done for them, hut seriously and ear?
nestly hope that some good may come from their
deliberations, and that the peace and prosperi?
ty of that noble people may he promoted
A great many rumors haye been set afloat of
late in regard to BISMARCK. His nervous sys?
tem is known to he much shattered. Some have
a different explanation of his malady, and will
have it that he is suffering from the conscious?
ness of having missed his aim, largely due to
the counteracting influences he met with on
part of the Court. He has on several occasions
asked for his dismission, hut the King cannot
yet spare him, and has therefore induced him
to withdraw his resignation. But his health is
such that a change will soon become absolutely
necessary, and DE SAVIGNY is looked upon, as
his most probable successor.
BISMARCK, it is understood, is in favor of the
early unification of Germany. ??e has repeat- j
cdly urged his views upon the King, hut has j
failed to prevail upon him to change his exclu
sive Prussian standpoint, and approve a policy I
which would give a more German coloring to j
Prussian politics. The King appears not quite |
equal to the situation. He is evidently afraid
that in becoming the head of Germany, he will !
lose his Prussian identity, if not some of the I
material rewards of his late victories. The I
States of South Germany hav.T . made overtures j
to Prussia to join the North G?rman Conf?de- S
racy, hut have always been repulsed. Baden I
has been specially desirous of such an alliance. !
The truth is, these Southern German States, j
without having been deprived of their sover- j
cignty, have - lost nearly their entire political
existence. They are of no importance them?
selves, nor do they any longer, as heretofore,
constitute an important part of a great nation.
In proof, we need only mention that the Am?
bassadors at Munich, English and French,
have recently received instructions from their
respective Governments to close their offices,
and the said embassies have been discontinued.
The people are dissatisfied. Th >y must ally
themselves with some large neighboring power.
The choice needs must lie between Austria and
Prussia. Tho fortunes of the former monarchy
within the past six months have not been such
as to make it probable, that any independent
power will now seek her alliance and protec?
tion. The prestige and affinities all point to
Prussia, she unquestionably being the present
representative of thc great ideal, Germany,
ol' windi wc have heard so much, and willoi* ?vc
hope ere long to see:
The new North German Confederation is, in
point of population, the fifth State of Europe,
being only exceeded by Russia, which in its
European dominions has a population of 01,
000,000; by France, with 07,472,732 inhabit?
ants ; Austria, with 02,572,000: and Great
Britain, with 20,021,071?. But of its four su?
periors in point of population, Austria and
Great Britain have even now less influence in
councils of European politics than Prussia:
and while they remain stationary, and arc dis?
turbed by violent agitation and even fears of
disintegration, Prussia is irresistibly pressing
forward. Uer army is so powerful that it bas
even compelled thc Government of France to
attempt an entire reorganization of its military
force, at thc risk of creating a general discon?
tent of the people. Unless overpowered by
grand combinations of other European powers,
Germany is now sure to advance, with a fair
prospect of becoming soon, next to Russin, the
leading power in Continental Europe.
Tun Congressional prayer meetings arc an?
nounced to take place every Thursday evening.
The Washington Republican hopes the honor?
able Senators and Representatives who attend
will devote some attention lo a venerable for?
mula commonly called "The Lord's Prayer,''
where God is invoked to forgive "as we forgive
those who trespass against, us." If it would
not be obtrusive, thc Republican would like to
recommend to half a dozen Radical Senators
and Representatives whom it could name, thc
propriety of committing that excellent prayer j
to memory. It will bc likely lo assist them
to get the rudiments sf Christian statesmanship j
into their heads.
Congress-TUc South and. thc Constitutional |
The majority of our people South thought, and j
had reason to do so, that the more prominent j
Radicals in Congress-and they are the ruling
members of that body-did not deairo us to ac?
cept tho Constitutional Amondment-that they
wanted something more. Our people thought,
therefore, that there was no reason to behove that,
if they did accept the Amendment, they would get
representation in Congress.
Merely as a matter of information-and wo trust
we w?l not be again accused of recommending the
Amendment merely because we publish news-we
publish extracts upon this subject from late
speeches of prom'nent Senators.
In a discussion with Mr. STTMNEB, Mr. WADE
Let me say that I should consider myself bound
by the Constitutional Amendment, if the Southern
States complied with it within a reasonable time,
and that reasonable time, in my judgment, is near?
ly elapsed. By a reasonable time I meari as soon
as their Legislatures can consider it. If they adopt
tho Constitutional Amendment, and comply with
the terms prescribed by the Beconstruction Com?
mittee and adopted by Congress, I should feel
bound to vote for their admission. I voted for the
Constitutional Amendment on that hypothesis.
Mr. WADE said again :
When the Committee on Reconstruction, at tho
last session, brought in their last proposition to
amend the Constitution, and to provide for the
readmission of the secedod States, the labors of
that Committee, I supposed, had been directed to
the inquiry upon what conditions we should per?
mit those States to come back into the Union. I
supposed it was for that purpose the Committee
was raised.' I supposed they had directed all their
inquiries to that subject, and that they had settled
down upon amendments to tho Constitution,
which were to be submitted to the seceded States,
and upon being adopted and complied with by
them ui good faith, and being ratified by three
I fourths of all the States, would entitle them to re
I presentation in the two Houses.
I supposed it was on that very condition that
we sought to permit them to como back. It would
seem to be an inconsistency to say that, if classes
of people were excluded from the "ballot-box, they
should net be entitled to be counted in tho basis of
representation-that is, that political power should
be based upon voters-if we did not mean to leave
it in tho power of the States to exclude some class
cf people from the ballot-box.
Yet again, by way of explanation and warning:
I cannot understand it in any other way than
that when three-fourths of the States ratified thit
Amendment, and made it a part and parcel of the
Constitution of tho United States, the Southern
States would then be in such a condition that they
might apply here, and, all other things being
equal, they would be admitted. Of course, they
must send loyal men: they must send men who
can take the oath; but all these conditions being
complied with, they should be received. If we did
not moan that, I^do not know what we did mean.
Why provide for what should happen on tho ex?
clusion of a certain class from the ballot-box, if we
did not intond to allow them to be excluded under
any circumstances ?
I will say in this connection as we have begun
to define our positions hore, that I think that .pro?
position was perfectly fair, temperate, judicious,
moderate beyond what tho world had ever seen be?
fore under such circumstances, and if the Southern
people throw it back defiantly in our teeth, and
will not comply with it, I am willing to say here
that I am for putting them under tho strong arm
of military power, and ruling theni in that way, if
it be necessary, so that they shall make BO disturb?
ance in this Government. If they will take thc
t ' rms we offer in a reasonable time, I am bound to
stand up to my agreement.
The position assumed by Mr. WADE is unreserv?
edly shared by his colleague. Mi*. SHERMAN. Al?
luding to SUMNER'S denial of the sufficiency of the
amendment, SHEHMAN said :
We mads a proposition to tho Southern States
at the last session of Congress. It was made after
the gravost and fullest consideration probably that
any measuro ever received from any Congross of
the United States. No legislative act of Congress
since tho foundation of this Government was sur?
rounded with more difficult questions than the one
we acted upon at the last session. After long de?
bate, after considering all the propositions that
wero made on either side, the Congress of the
United States made to the people of the Southern
States a deliberate proposition. We submitted to
them Constitutional Amendments. It seems to
me that no one can avoid the irresitiblc logic
that if they accepted those Amendments vo were
bound to carry thom out. I know I voted fi. . hose
Amendments with that understanding. I felt that
I would be bound by that action. I felt that, if
they accepted thoso Amendments, they were States
in the Union, entitled to Senators and Representa?
tives, precisely liko the State of Massachusetts and
the State of Ohio. 1 did not droam that there was
any doubt about the matter. And, sir, Jet me s&y to
you that if the Southern people had accepted, or if
they do accept, tho Constitutional Amendments,
those States aro just as certain to be represented
here by Senators and members as the Stato of Ohio
or tho State of Massachusetts.
I know that my friend from Massachusetts, and
perhaps some other Senators, were dissatisfied
with tho Constitutional Amendments. They did
not meet their expectations; they did not impose
the terms and conditions that they hoped to im?
pose on the Southern people; they did not proba?
bly meet their sense of duty; but still the people
of the United States have feit themselves bound
by those terms; and, if the Southern people wotdd
now accept them, the people of the United Statea
wo. ld hail their acceptance as the most joyful
event sinco the surrender of Lee's army.
The Republicans of Boston have "gone back" on
the colored members of their party, and as a con?
sequence, the negroes have treated them in the
same way. The Republican leaders, it is said,
promised the blacks representation in tho city
government, but the nominating caucuses threw
them overboard without scruple or conscience.
Hence the wrath, of the colored men, and their at
[ tempted retaliation at the polls.-Hartford Cou
li the colored men are competent to take part in
' the government, as the Republicans contend, why
should they treat them in this manner?
