While President Johnson, througl:
th? Provisional Governors, if eudea
voriiig t? quietly yet effectually read?
just the machinery of the respective
?tate Governments in the S?uth, tin
politicians in the Northern States ure
holding their conventions Sad ''attar

shall orect fo? their" candidates ti
stand upon. The p-oik-y of ilse Pro
aident is, in nioet instances, working

desiretl results; ???t tho politicians it

Of the Southern Stetes, but a?so tli
politics of the ?ctf?hy are being ?adi
defeated ia nlfflos4 ?very instaiuw
They hw.vc b-itcn unable to swerve th
President from his lixed pohey, an
in all th*- conventions yet held thc
have onl> found two which wm dd gi**
their radicftL "resolves oren the respei
of consideration, and only one th:
would in the least endorse them.
The Republicaus of Ohio led off j
holding tneir Stak; Convention,
convened just nt the time when tl
agitation in regard fo negro suffrag
was at its height, and when it wi
generally supposed the radicals ht
> sufficient s?fccugth to direct the actic
' of the party** in many of the State
But the returned veteraus obiaint
control of that gathering,, ana kc
tlie radicals in the background. Tin
seeureli their own platform and non
nated one of their own leaders f
Governor. Tho Jacobins then elia
to the nominee-Gen. Cox-declarh
that ho was sound on their creed, ai
was all the platform they desired. B
he soon came out and r?pudi?t
them, and in a clear analogically pi
p;u*ea letter proved that their di
trines were untenable and their d<
mas a mere bundle of heresies. Vi
mont was the next State to hold
convention, and there the doctrines
the Chase faction were passed pver
isileuce. That bistate has always bc
considered one of the mos? radical
the Union, and was never known
give the Democrats sufficient show
furnish1 evidence that there" were a
such beings.in the State. The pol
of Mr. Johnson was thoroughly
dorsed, and the people cf the St
pledged toits support in ite'executii*
The Republicans of New Jessey AV
the next to hold their State Cona?
tion,- and there, after extmorilwt
efforts, resolutions were iutrodtv
containing a long rigmarole abnut
equality of the red men/ black n
and white inen, deckring that
blacks of the' South were entitled,
vote. But ho person but tho mo
of these resolutions took the trot
?i to advocate them. . Tho' r*mlt
that they were unceremoniously k
ed under the'table, not receiving
many votes as there were resoluth
while, on tlie other hand, the cohn
tiotiwas almost a unit in endorsing
the most emphatic manner, Ute co
of the President.
The failure in these three Stav*
not very encouraging to the' C.
party^and indications were &%
?where manifest of their backing d
in the principal central States.
Rt this stage, a black star appoare
the Eastern horizon. The Rep
cans in the State of Maine ciin
the relief of the Jacobin* and en?
dorsed the social equality Qi races and
negro suffrage, but were compelled to
sugar-coat it over with- thc pretence of
endorsing the policy of the President.
This action has furnished the radicals
ray of hope, but Trill hardly amount
to anything practically. The Repub?
licans of Pennsylvania hold their con?
vention at Harrisburg this w?ek. Th?
politicians of the peaty are deeply
interested in tho straggle between
Gov. Curtin and ex-Secretary Came?
ron for the Senatorship, which will,
no doubt, override all other questions.
There is, however, but little indica?
tion that the ?adieal doctrines will
fare any better there than they dTd in
Ohio and New Jersey? which border
on that State:
The endorsement of the pacification
policy of the President may be con?
sidered ii* Uextain. This universal
course Cf the Northam- conventions,
find the general disposition of the
j dominant par*?.- here not to foi :e upon
j the Southern States a class of voters
not admitted to the privilege of the.
franchise ut homc,~wi!l strengthen tho
j Southern people and encourage them'
to work more earnestly for the-success
! of the adjusintent'prpgx?uutte of Mr.
j Johnson. It also in a measure; ehoek
! mates the nidiculs ind strike?* a sever?'
I blow at their petter and influence,
j Now let the^-dastitetioualodilvolitions
I which are about tv assemble in the
Southern States admit the blacks to
! the privilege of voting by adopting
some snell provision a.*? now exi.ts in
.this State--that is, allowing a!l those
to vote, w?ie? kure taxableproperty to
l the ??iou:'! of*?vo hundred and fifty
dollars-r<y :ui educational restriction,
like thai of MassachuscxUs, and the
radicals will be power! e.??s either in
^ Congress or elsewhere. V, Lfch lbw
j basis, they will not duri- to rake their
! hami or oppose the admittance of thc
: Southern representatives. On the
? other hand, tho whole influence ri' thc
j North will bo exercised iii their be
I half; re-union, .peace, prosperity and
I the harmony of the wkple country will

Thc Atlantic Cabk--1* it ii PaDiivo!
in a despatch from St. John's, New
foundlaud, we are furnished with far?
ther very interesting details deserip
tive of tho parting of Mm Atlantic
telegraph cable, and the subsequent
ellon s to recover it. The breaking
' occurred about ha>f-past I'l o'eloe^ii
the afternoon of thc-J. irs*., at a poin
wkltre the water was bydOO yards deep
alter Over 1.2o'J miles of the cable hui
been payed out, in consequence of it;
becoming injured by dialing on tin
stern ol tho ship while rchauling :
portion of it on board the Great East
ern to^renipve another defect in th
insulation which hud been discovered
After losing it, ii was grappled thre?
tunes, being on one oi the occasion
'brought to within 1>:1U0 yunis i?f th
water's surface; but 'tin- weight iva
too much for the grappling rope
which each time brolle and droppei
the cat*k-. The last attempt to rais
it was made on the 1 iib inst., when
not ineetin;' with sueeess. a buoy wu
placed over liie :>pofr where it wat, losl
and the Great J in ter n sailed for Ku^
land, and ber consorte, the Terribl
and Galatea, for St. John's?, where til
latter vessels arrived on h st Tuesda
even-rag, as heretofore anne' '.need.
The'foll?)wing practical concluMion
have been arrived at by those engage
in varions capacities in the expeditioi
1. That the steamship Great Eas
ern, from her size and sea-going qual
ties, can' carry and hiv an At tanti
telegraph cable safely in any wmthei
2. Tuat the payuig-ont machiner;
constructed for tue purpose by Messr
Canning & Clifford,, works perfectly
and can be confidently relied on. Tin
the, insulation of the gutta percha coi
ductor improved by reason of tho n
duction oi the temperature and tl
great "pressure ?it the bottom of ti
ocean, and was more than double wk
it had been before starting, prpvil
itself to fcc the best insulated fkrab
ever manufactured, and many tim
I higher than the standard required 1
the contract. The cause of the tv
faults which were picked up was
each case a perforation of the gut
porcha through to the. copper by
1 piece of iron wire found -sticking
I tho cable. Electrically, the third i&ult
I was analagods to the first. The diffl
I cnlty can DO guitrded against in the
Lconstrnotion of fixture cables.
" 4. That nothing has occurred to
create the least doubt, in the minds of
practical naen engaged in the expedi?
tion, of the successful laying and work?
ing of the Atlantic telegraph eable,
but, i ri the ebiitrary, their confidence
in the undertaking has been largely
increased* by thc esperience thus ob?
5. That with the G.ea^ Eastern
steamship, and with stronger tackle,
and with improved picking up ma?
chinery, there is a possibility of reco?
vering* the lost end of the cable ?ad.
completing the hue already two-thirds
laid. SAMUEL CANNING,
