THE REV. DB. SEHON IN NEW YOKE.
There was ?in ir eresting religious
service at the Cooper Institute yester?
day, which was attended by a congre?
gation composed of Southerners at
present residing in New York. Rev.
Dr. Sehon, of Nashville, Tennessee,
Missionary Secretary of the Metho?
dist Episcopal Church, South, de?
livered a very eloquent sermon,
during which he pointedly alluded to
the present state of the country. Mr.
Sehon, -it will be remembered, was a
chaplain in the Confederate army.
He came North, a few weeks ago, to
collect a sum of $21,000, needed by
. the Methodist Church for its missions
in China and among the Indians, and
I understood that, thus far, he has
been quite successful in raising a
portion of the money required. At
the close of the services yesterday,
several gentlemen subscribed $50
each, and as soon as other Southern?
ers now residing here will hear of it
the entire amount will, no doubt, be
forthcoming. I am informed that
these Southern religious services are
to be repeated during several weeks
at the Cooper Institute, at which ser?
mons will be delivered by prominent
clergymen from the States lately
struggling for their independence.

A GOOD SION.-We are pleased to
hear, from well informed gentlemen,
that the freedmen of this District are,
as a general thing, taking good care
of the corn, peas, &c, that fell to
their share at the close of the last
year, and show no disposition to dis
pose of moro than they can, with
safety, spare. It has been feared that
"they would part with their provisions
thoughtlessly and improvidently. We
Are glad to be so agreeably disap?
pointed. By their conduct in this
matter, they not only exhibit a com?
mendable prudence, but afford reason?
able grounds for the hope that they
are about to give up theft as a means
of living, and are making honest cal?
culations concerning their support
during the year. Thu increasing price
of provisions, doubtless, has its in?
fluence. However this may be, let
their prudence be sustained by the
advice and encouragement of their
employers. We shall be happy when
truth permits us to follow up these

diminution in the number of smoke?
houses broken into and hen-roosts

The resolution for amending tl

of the States will adopt it; for as tl
Executive, as stated in the proclam
tion from the State Department, r
cognized Southern States as now u
represented in the Union, they mu
be so considered hereafter. Beside
the resolution implies that Stat
may deny certain races or color tl
right of suffrage, whereas it has be<
assumed by the radicals that Congre
had the right to control that matt
under the portion of the Constitute
which provides for a republican foi
of government in States.
It will be seen that, by the pi
posed C institutional amendinei
that if all negroes are not allowed
vote, none of that race shall
counted for representation. Thus,
limited suffrage, based on properl
or intelligence, or military servit
will not count. States must take t

IMPORTANT RESULTS OF MB. SEW?
ARD'S TRIP.-A special [despatch to
the New York News, dated Washing?
ton, January 30, says :
The Secretary of State arrived here
on Sunday, from Havana, having
successfully accomplished a most im?
portant diplomatic mission. On Mon?
day, he had ? long interview with the
President, to whom he communicated
the results of this mission. At the
Cabinet meeting to-day, all the mem?
bers were present, and the matter was
made the subject of special discus?
sion. I have before intimated that
the object of Mr. Seward's visit to
Havana was to bring about a peaceful
and honorable settlement of the Mex?
ican question. I am now able to
state positively that ho was invested
by the President with extraordinary
and plenipotentiary powers for this
purpose. A high officer of Maximil?
ian's Government, clothed with simi?
lar powers, met Mr. Seward at Havana
and an interview took place there, at
which the basis of the settlement was
agreed upon. The agreement does
not provide for the recognition of
Maximilian, nor does it require the
United States to make any change in
her foreign policy nor to abandon
any cherished principle. I am not
even aware that Mr. Seward made any
pledges or promises whatever; but on
the same day that the DeSoto left
Havana, a French steamer left that
port tor Vera Cruz, and it bore to
Maximilian the verbal assurance that
the policy of neutrality on the part
of the United States toward Mexico
would be continued and strictly en?
To-day Mr. Seward communicated
to the Cabinet the gratifying fact
that the evacuation of Mexico by the
French troops would be commenced
immediately, and that it would be our
own fault if that evacuation was not
complete before next July. The
Mexican question is now in a fair way
to be settled peacefully ?and honora?
bly, and there are only two ways by
which that settlement can be retard?
ed-first, by violations of neutrality
ou the Kio Grande; and second, by
the introduction in and passage by
I Congress, of offensive and injudicious
I resolutions like those of Schenck's.
WHO WILL NOT WORK.-It is as?
sumed, by a great many well-meaning
people, that the freedmen will not
work exeept upon compulsion. We
have heard this belief expressed by
people of various characters, but
there is one class from whom it comes
with peculiar force. It is those peo?
ple who never work themselves, and
are. therefore, greatly scandalized
that their prerogative, of doing noth?
ing, should be thus invaded. If they
would set the freedmen in their
various localities an example of use?
ful industry, it might possibly have
some effect. These persons are un?
able to undersrand the attractions of
labor, when they see it so completely
eschewed by some who pronounce
the most eloquent eulogies upon its
beauties and advantages.
The proposition is, that freedmen
will not work except upon compulsion.
Well, compulsion is all that makes
any of us -work. There is nothing
in work so very fascinating and de?
lightful, that any one chooses it for
itself. 1 'He that will not work neither
shall he eat, " is the great law which
keeps in motion the wheels of the
world's industry. When this law
comes to operate fully on the freed?
men, we shall see whether they will
work or not. We mnst make allow?
ances for the effects of sudden eman?
cipation, and wait till the classes, who
are expected to become self-depen?
dent all at once, have time to realize
the responsibilities of their new
A novel and ingenious style of rob?
bery was developed in Carmine street
yesterday forenoon. A pohceman on
duty was accosted by another man
in full police uniform, who stated that
he had been specially detailed to ar?
rest a counterfeiter in that vicinity,
and would probably need assistance.
Soon after a man with a tin cash box
passed along, was arrested by the
strange pohceman as the bogus note
manufacturer alluded to and given in
charge of the other officer to convey
to the station house, the stranger at
the same time taking charge of the
prisoner's box, which he said he
would carry to police headquarters. It
was discovered, however, on tho ar?
rival at the station house of the Car?
mine street officer with his man, that
he had in his charge the porter of the
Greenwich Savings Bank, who, when
arrested, had been in the discharge of
his legitimate duty, and that the
individual who had so kindly taken
charge of the cash box, which con?
tained $3,000, was nothing less than
an impostor, who had devised this
ingenious plan to get possession of
the monoy. The rogue has not been
arrested.-New York Herald.

"We are not at all surprised by the
accumulating evidences of the inten?
tion of the Emperor of the French
to withdraw his troops from Mexico.
Whatever may have been his expec?
tations of the results of that occupa?
tion, the fall of the Confederacy
virtually sealed the fate of the new
Mexican Empire, and satisfied Napo?
leon that the preservation of friendly
relations with che United States de?
manded tho abandonment of the Mex?
ican enterprise. If the Monroe,
doctrine had never been heard of,
the manner and time of establishing
the empire of Maximilian would have
been an offence in the eyes of Ameri?
cans that could only be atoned for by
the withdrawal of French troops from
Mexico. This the JJmperor must
have seen, and resolved to shape his
action accordingly, only taking care
to-retire with deliberation and dig?
The wise and cautions monarch
who governs France understands
thoroughly the possession of Mexico
is not as important to his country as
the possession of the friendship and
good will of the United States. From
the moment the United States had a
national existence, France has been,
with the exception of a brief interval,
her faithful ally and fast friend. She
came to our relief when wo were
almost overpowered by tho heavy
blows of a gigantic adversary. The
war of the Revolution might have
been a failure but for French interpo?
sition. It is unnecessary to assume
that she acted from disinterested sen?
timents. Nations are not much given
to Quixotic chivalry. But the same
feelings of rivalry towards England,
the same interests which demand that
Great Britain should not be permit?
ted to dominate over the universal
seas, still require that France should
have a great maritime ally who will
assist her to set limits to the naval
supremacy of England. Tho entente
cordiaie, therefore, between France
and the United States has always
been decided, and rarely interrupted.
The United States is the only power
which promises to become the com?
mercial rival of England-the only
power of modern times. which has
shown equal aptitude and efficiency
in naval combats with tho vaunted
Mistress of the Seas. Would it not
be the most suicidal fatuity in France
to convert such an ally into an enemy
for the sake of miserable Mexico, and
to involve herself in a war with the
United States which, without the
possibility of inflicting much injury
upon us, and with a strong probabil?
ity, indeed, that Mexico itself would
become our's, would only enure to
the commercial benefit of England,
who would preserve a rigid neutrality
in the contest, and grow rich out of
the commercial impoverishment of
We can readily, therefore, see that
the Emperor Napoleon only desires
to be permitted to leave Mexico with?
out the appearance of acting under
duress ; for, whatever the calamities
of a war, the honor of France will
not permit him to withdraw if tho
United States use a word or gesture
of menace.-Richmond Dispatch.
A NOVEL QUESTION-Is the pro?
prietor of a public house compelled

eating house of Joiner & Co.. at

negro soldiers were refused admission
to dinner at the regular table. Upon
their complaint, Captain Wartman

that if they were not allowed to cat
at the regular table, the house would

the grounds that his customers would
