SATURDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 16, 1867.
RECONCILIATION AT WASHINGTON.
"Extremes meet," it is said; if so, it must bo be?
cause of the universal presenco of a centripetal
power in morals aud in politics, analngous to the
force discovered by Sir ISAAC NEWTON to be inhe?
rent in tho cartb. Government, in its very nature,
ia necessarily made up of compromises. Were
each party that enters into B LCD. an organization
to adhere rigidly to its original creed or platform,
the machinery of government and of society
must (certainly of ?re9 governments) soon be
brought to a stop, and tho direst oppression, or
else a revolution, bo the inevitable result. Usually
thero are tho clements within each party to make
a mutual rapprochement possible: men who aro
not blind to the results of their course of legisla?
tivo conduct, utterly reckless of consequences,
and, it may bo, when brought to an ultimate
choice, are bold enough to avow that they prefer
country to party. It is t y some such process that
extremes meet; that important public measures,
for years perhaps the topic of bitter party strife,
are ultimately ripened, and entered upon the Con?
stitution or Starute Book of Law.
The Congress at Washington for many months
past has been the scene of one of these legislative
dead-locks; the Legislature palling in one direc?
tion, and the Administration in another. Various
remedial measures have been proposed, especially
within the past few weeks, with a view of averting
the dread catastrophe impending over tho coun?
try, in case of a further continuance Of this state
of things; as yet, however, without success. But
we can now see indicatioi s, becoming daily more
and more clear, that the Radical fortress, hitherto
deemed impregnable, shows signs of shakiness,
and the prospect of an early breach just now is
very decided. Some of the men who have hereto?
fore been deemed sachems of the Badical tribe aro
becoming weak-kneed. They are evidently becom?
ing satisfied that, with the reinB.in the hands of
THAD. STEVENS, the country is on tho broad road
to ruin, and the desire for a compromise between
Congress and the President is daily gaining
strength. The President, it is now said by "well
informed persons," is willing to meet Congress
more than half-way in a scheme of reconstruction,
and that he. will not opposo himself to any pLan.
which embraces the Constitutional AtgfivASeatl
proposed by Congress, "and_ ot^er" salutary and
necessary measures.?'.. Ttis" rumor receives con?
firmation fwrTtho speech made in the House on
Saturr3Sy"last by Mr. RAYMOND,-who is consid?
ered to represent the President,-in tho cours o of
which he proposed the appointment of
a select, committee of five or seven members, of
which he thought it extremely desirable the vene?
rable and distinguished gentleman from Pennsyl?
vania (Mr. Stevens) should be chairman, with
leave to sit during the session of the House, which
should be ii i-sructed to report, as early as Wed?
nesday morning next, immediately after tho read?
ing of tho journal, a bill which should provide for the
protection of life and the preservation of the peaco,
temporarily, in theEtate?lately in rebellion, and
also for the speedy, admission-of these States into
the Union on the basis of. the Constitutional
Amendments adopted at the last session of Con?
gress, and such additional provisions as the com?
mittee might deem expedient. He believed that if
the subject was committed to a discreet and judi?
cious committee, whose first obj oct should bo to
unite on some practical measure, the House would
reaoh that rasuit which would command tho sup?
port of its own members and of the country, and
lite approval or at least thc assent of Hue Exec uti oe.
Mr. RAYMOND added, in reply to a question :
I have no hesitation in saying to the House
that in my judgment a bill embracing these pro?
visions, and passing this House with a proper
spirit ' of unanimity, would ougage the assent of
the Prasidont. That is my personal belief.
This fully satisfies all the Conservativo Repub?
licans, and the Evening Post, one of the leading
organs of that wing of the party, says that Con?
gress will assume a very grave responsibility in?
deed if it does not drop everything else, and give
tts closest attention to the perfecting-of such mea?
sures, advising fully with the President at the
same time, so as to ins uro his most hearty con?
tient and co-operation. /
In how far the details of the plan herc propos?
ed, which, it v, ill be obs -rved from its general
language, admits of great latitude, will provo pala?
table to oar own section, it is of course impossible
to say. There is a memorable reconciliation re?
corded on the pages of sacred history, which, we
hope, may not ad?mbrate events in the present
:ose. We refer to the chapter where it is rolated
that HEBOD and PILATE, enemies before, became
friends on that day.
Mr. BANKS introduced a scheme for reconstruc?
tion in the shape of a bill on Saturday, which, it
is thought, embodies the views which the Prosi-4
lent is ready to accept. This, we believe, is the
aili that has since passed the House, and is
mewn as the Louisiana Bill. Inasmuch as it
Drobably ?B the pattern for the establishment of
iimilar governments in all tho other Southern
States, and therefore of ri tal interest to us, wo
jive it entire for the information of our readers.
I BILL TO PERFECT AND ESTABLISH THE GOVERN?
MENT OF LOUISIANA.
Whereas a form of government has been organ
zed in Louisiana, one of the States lately in re?
bellion, which government has nevor been recog?
nized by Congress, and having failed to secure the
ights of loyal citizens or protect the government
tgainst disloyal persons, cannot now be recognized
vithout peril to the public interest ; and whereas
he condition of the country imperatively demands
he earliest restoration to tho Union of this and
ither insurgent States ; vid whereas there is just
*eason to beiive that with such protection as the
jeneral government may rightfully extend to the
oyal people of Louisiana, they will be able to es?
coban and maintain for themselves that equality
)f rights aflh-mod by the Declaration of Indepen
lence and guaranteed by the Constitution to a 1 the I t
>eople of the United Statos forever. Therefore
Be it enacted, &c., first. That a commission of

upport of tho government, or who can read or f,
