Thc Conditions Precedent.
The Southern States, in their honest ac?
ceptance of tho results of thc late conflict
between them and the Federal Government,
aa their prompt and candid acknowledg?
ment of their defeat - in their hearty co?
operation with the necessary preliminary
steps proposed by the Administration at
Washington for their restoration to thc
Federal Union, and their adoption of mea?
sures suggested merely by that Govern?
ment, have sincerely and patriotically come
up to the great work of reconstructing thc
Republic as it was upon the foundation of
thc Constitution and laws. The mere tem?
porary domination of any radical party
.Hhorild not deter those having thc ship of
State in .charge to deviate from thc chart
course laid out, and we trust will not.
Aa some of our Northetn exchanges very
properly say, tho Southern States are natu?
rally anxious to know definitely upon what
terms they will bc permitted to enjoy the
privileges and perform the duties that ap?
pertain to them as parts of our political
system; and thc North as well as tho
South is naturally desirous of anderstand
?ig the policy of the Administration. If
an amendment of the Constitution is to be
made an imperative condition of the r??
habilit?t ion of the Union, let it bo so
stated in unequivocal words. It would be
a. great injustice to demand such a condi?
tion, but the injustice is enhanced by thin
method of paltering in a double sense.
Mr. Seward says that peace and harmony
depend upon the loyal legislation of thc
Southern Staten upon a question that is
already settled. We deny it, says thc New
York Netcs. Peace reigns throughout tho
?Republic, and is not likely to be disturbed
from any issues of a domestic nature; and,
as io harmony, there is nothing that
threatens that except the efforts of Black
Republicanism to enforce their partisan
.doctrines upon an unwilling people.
lt is eminently proper that tho States
.seeking to bc restored to their rightful
paaitiat) ia thc Union should know definitely
what arc thc couttitioiis they must accept
before- what they seek will bo afforded to
them. God knows they have suffered enough,
and in their manly and honest efforts
to accept and faithfully carry emt the con?
ditions necessary and consequent upon tho
resulta e>r the- late war, the duty of patriots
everywhere should be tu facilitate these
Conciliation and tho promotion of good
feeling between the people of thc two sec?
tions lately at war, is now the work of pa?
triots everywhere, all over the land. Too
many exactions ought not to bc^saade from
a defeated bat brave people, \nd wv
earnestly trnut that those whose position
in .thc Government warrants them toVim
po.se conditions, or those (thc people of
tho North ) who can appreciate tn ' 'ra very,
worth or honor, ia a vanquished e>p
poueni, will, instead of forcing unneces?
sary hnnc?liating cor.ebtions, ^o earnestly
to work tv heal aV. wounds, and unite us,
a people determined to place our country
on the- highest pinnacle ol'nat ional pre>s
perity and greatness.

The Tax Law?.
"We observe that a Convention of United
States Internal Revenue Assessors from
New York, New England and the Western
States, vax he-Id last week at Albany, for
tho purpose of makin;,' such recommenda?
tions to the next Congre ss, resp? cting the
practical working of the law, as their e-x
periencu might dictate, with thc view e>:~
securing greater uniformity in its execu?
tion. Tlie Convention failed to agree upon
A re-port, partly from the gr. at dive rsity oi
opinion in regard to the workings of tin
law anet the remedy for existing abuses,
partly from a greater desire on the part ol
the- assessors to retain their place.-., and
not offend the-ir supe riors, than to improve
the law; _\et their deliberations elicited
sonic interesting facts, and were imp -rt a ni
a.s showing the- necessity that exists for :
revision ?if mir revenue syst*. . .. When
ever an assessor made a statement "f tin
interpretation of tin law by thc Treasury
authorities, others immediate ly quoted op

of these conflicting decisions, show the
necessity for reform.

it was shown tbat thc la\e-s ein j.".:i n<
cratches, carriages, silver ware and <?t !i?
kindred article s, embraced under the hes
*>f luxuries, were not worth thc expi nse i
collection. The discussion on tho tax of
?ales was important, as showing thc superi?
ority of this system. A resolution endors?
ing it was voted down, hut several of tho
ablest and most intelligent assessors sup?
ported this form of taxation. Modifica?
tions were suggested in the .mode of
collecting revenue on mai facturcd ar?
ticles. It is proposed that io deductions
shall bo made for freight on manufactured
articles, and that goods consigned to an
agent shall not be taxed till sold.
Wc arc informed of a most painful and
fatal occurrence on one of the hacks from
Alston. About one and a half miles this
side of Hope Station, tho hack or ambu?
lance was precipitated into a gulley about
fifteen feet deep. Thc result was that four
passengers wore killed outright and throe
Among tho passengers killed was the
Bev. Dr. James Cohen, so long known as
professor in the Theological Seminary in
this city; Mrs. VanWinkic, of Charleston;
an English lady, (name not known.) a resi?
dent in tho family of Mr. Peronneaux, of
Charleston: and a colored servant or nurse.
There is great blame to bo attached some

The President'? >?essat?e.
Tho Now York Herald is of opinion that
"no document ever penned by an American
statesman, since the Declaration of Inde?
pendence, tho Constitution of tho United
States and the first inaugural of the la?
mented Lincoln, will be road upon both
sidos of tho Atlantic with such intense in?
terest as tho forth-coming message of
President Johnson. Providentially called
to tho chief executive chair nt an extra?
ordinary crisis, when tho country was fust
emerging from the blood and smoke of a
terrible civil war, and when tho world was
horror stricken hy tho nows of Lincoln's
assassination. President Johnson assumed
his onerous duties at a moment's notice,
and 1ms since been discharging thom with
an energy, tact and discretion that cannot
he too highly extolled."
Tlie Herald adds the following specula?
tions as to the forth-emiiing document:
During th?; political canvass that has just
concluded, President Johnson, finding both
parties harmonious in sustaining him. has
be en quietly preparing the message which
he ;s to transmit to Congress in December,
ar.d ho is still diligently engaged in this
important labor. The message will pro?
bably treat mainly nf our domestic affairs.
His pedioy in regard to the restoration ol
the Union will no doubt bo fully stated and
explained. This policy involves thc ad?
mission of regula iv elected representa?
tives from tho S. ?nthorn States te Congress;
and whether that point is treated sepa?
rately er merely referred to as a corollary
j of the restoration policy, it will, we hope,
bo se> clear arni incontrovertible as to re?
move every reasonable doubt that may be
entertained upon tho subject in any quar?
ter. Of course, Congress will have to bc
organized before the President's inessa gc
is received, and wo anticipa.i>. that, as the
time for action approaches, the radicals
will abandon tho revolutionary pro/octi
which they have boen recently concocting
and allow all tho legal members of tin
House to take their ?eats without distur?
bance. Should there bo any danger ot
revolutionary proceedings, however, th?
message limy be transmit?.-a to tie- public
journals, which aro the rea! representa?
tives of the people, and may bo accompani?
ed, as we suggested a few days ago, by a
proclamation calling for a grand special
election. In any event, we believe that its
declarations and explanations in regard tc
tho President's policy will h - so satisfac?
tory to tho American people, that there wil
he no ground left for such constitutional
or unconstitutional grumblers as Wendell
Phillips, who appear to think it theil
special mission to lind fault with every?
body ar.d everything, not excluding them?
selves. Wherever the foreign policy o
tie- Government is intimately connected
with the subject of restoration it will be
amply treated: but it is not likely tba
much space will br devoted to our foreigi
relations in detail, io bi- formal speed
upon the reception of thc Minister from
Brazil, the President has already cxpressei
his views in connection with the affairs o
this continent, referring quite distinctly
to the Mexican imbroglio: and Mu rope al
once ri-cou'n i/.ed the application of his re
marks. The claims of this Governmon
upon Great Britain foi- the damages in
rl'oted by English privateers have airead;
been presented by Minister Adam.-, am
are being diplomatically discussed. Tin
President's telegrams to tlc- S?rth Caro
bna and Georgia Conventions have scttlei
tho case of the rebel bondholders. Uri?
.references to these and kindred matter
will, therefore, suffice for th.- forthcorainj
message. Presielent Johnson believes th;-,
we should att-.-nd to our domestic affair
before attending to om- foreign affairs
that WC should make no demands until W.
are perfectly ready to enforce them: aie
I we consequently presume that the mc
mentons message which lie is now prepai
lng wil! be mainly devoted to th. policy c
restoration, and that onr foreign relation
will be in a measure reserved for anoihe
I Presidential communication.
London Correspondence of Richmond
LONDON, October 21.-Thc death of Lord
Palmerston, which occurred on thu 18th
instant, at "Brockley Hall" cs- cf hi::
lordship's country scats-has cast a gloom
not only over London, but over the king?
dom. His personal traits-his cheerful,
fresh, hearty disposition-not les? than his
great career of usefutness in more than
half a century of public service, endeared
him to thc people of his country, and cause
them truly to mourn his loss.
Although his health has been failing for
some time past, it was only about five days
before his death that any anxiety was felt
by his friends with regard to him. He was
then attacked with severe cold, accompa?
nied by some of the most serious conse?
quences of gout, including paralysis of the
bladder, and from these diseases sank
peacefully and calmly, but rapidly, io his
rest. One day more, and he"would have
been eighty-one years of age. Earl Russell,
for many reasons, is looked upon as his
probable successor as "First Minister."
Already in thc Cabinet, of which he is tho
senior member, a representative man in
the present liberal views entertained by a
majority of tho nation, the author of the
letters on the English side of tho recant
"Confederate Cruiser Correspondence,"
(the sentiments of which letters are heartily
endorsed hy "John Bull") it can hardly be
doubted tbat, upon die return of the
Queen from Scotland, Lord John will be
"sent for" to Buckingham Palace. And
again, his appointment would do away with
the necessity for any sweeping changes in
tho Cabinet, and of assembling Parliament
at this very inconvenient season. Added
to this, the British side of tiio American
question would be much strengthened by
placing tho statesman who has hitherto
conducted the negotiation, at the head of
the Government. By this arrangement,
the leadership of the Commons would fall
to the Chancellor of the Exchequer-Mr.
(Hailstone; and Lord Clarendon would pro?
bably bo installed in the Foreign Office,
i Quite a stir has boon created in tho world
I of politics .-uni trade byan announcement
I in the Times, a few days since, that Mr.
Seward, as tho result of" a Cabinet discus?
sion rcccntlv held at Washington on the
subj.-ct. bad sent a despatch to Paris, to
be communicated to the French Govern?
ment, in which Hie "United States Govern?
ment states, in very decided language, that
it will not permit additional troops to bc
sent to Mexico by France, anil that any
further intervention in tho affairs of that
country by the Emperor of thc French
?nay lead to a serious misunderstanding
between thc two Governments." Such a
stat' meut, by snell an authority, of course,
had immediate effect on United States se?
curities, but tlit- subsequent statement ot'a
sort of semi-official denial from Washing?
ton of any recent action in Mexican affairs,
served to quiet matters somewhat: yet. the
effect is still apparent on thc stock ex?
The behavior of the people of the defeat?
ed sectioi: oi the United States is much
applauded 1 ere, and the course of Presi?
dent Johnson meets with universal appro?
bation. In these things, those who think
on the subject see a solution of th<- recon?
struction problem; but there are many who
profess not to understand why tie-South?
ern men yielded so suddenly and so com?
pletely, 'lhere ar? they who never knew,
or if tin y knew, have forgotten, that with?
in t wo months after tho bat tie of Hastings,
William, the Norman, without opposition,
was crowned King at Westminster.
Tiie holders of the rebel cotton bonds
have commenced to agitate the subject of
the liability of the United States Govcrn
iiii nt, as w-fll as of the several States
which composed tho Confederacy, for their
payment. The argument as to the liability
of "the United States seems to be that thc
Confederacy, being Government "de
facto" ha I'tho right to contract tho debt,
and pledge the cotton for its redemption,
anti hence, the United States taking the
cot ton as capture of war, takes it burdened
with thc lien, and must either satisfy the
claim or release the property.
As to t he liability of the individual States
of tho lat?; Confederacy, it is contended by
thc holders if th< bonds thc' by reason of
the peculiar form of goveri . ent under tho
United Stat-s Constitution, secession was
not rebellion, and that, although the States
seceding violated the agreement or com?
pact of that instrument, they violated no
allegiance; that whilst tho " Confederacy
existed, it.-. States maintained their sove?
reignty, and that having, in the exercise of
sucli sovereignty, contracted this debt
through their legal representatives, they
aie ?tlll bound for its pnymeut. These
colton bonds, I predict, will be tiled asa
..set-off' against the claims made by Mr.
Adams for indemnity fur losses by the
rebel pirates to United States citizens, and
the two together may furnish material for
diplomatic notts foi- some timo to come.
Meanwhile the Louds aro bought and sold
"on change.'' teal regularly quoted in thc
reports of the stock market.
The enterprise of London, not satisfied
by running steam trains "underground,"
ha commenced the practice of moving
suca tra?as by air pressure alone. The
"underground" railway, proper, is simply
.i gigantic tunnel passing under some of
tin- greatest thoroughfares and most solid?
ly and compactly built quarters of this
great city. The pneumatic tub,.- lin- is an
iron case, about four by six feet, two mik s
in length t present, and all "under?
ground." In t ' - case or tube, rails aro
hud down. . ; .aced upon thom, and. by
means of a large blast ?an. located at one
end of it. and made to revolve at a high
speed, by means of stationary steam en?
gines, they "raise the wind'' to such an
extent that the cars are blown through the
tube, from Faningden street to Eastern
Square, a distance of two miler-, in live
ni in uti s.
The choli ra. with the exception of :? few
iso|;,t, d cases, ha* been no nearer to bon?
don that tlc- distance from lu re to Paris.
At thc latter place it exists to a consider?
able extent, at present, although it is not
so serious in th-, nnmbcr or character of
th.- cases as ivas to l"- apprehended. Thc

and beaten that hi- present campaign will
