THE COMING PROCLAMATION.-It is
stated that the President has pre?
pared a proclamation declaratory of
the restoration of peace, and of the
right of the Southern States and
people to representation in the Na?
tional Legislature. Mr. Johnson
could not select a better time than
the present to issue such a proclama?
tion. The people expect it, demand
it; it will be hailed with acclamations
by the masses everywhere, except in
those New England districts where
the popular mind has been complete?
ly perverted by the teachings of fa?
naticism. The radicals aro losing
heart. They -would not rail so vio?
lently against the President if they
did not feel his power and fear it.
They are conscious that the verdict
of the people is against them, and
that the supremacy that they gained
from the opportunities offered by
civil strife is vanishing from their
grasp. The fever is over, the pas?
sions engendered by war are subsid?
ing, the multitudes are yielding to
the influence of reason, and appre?
ciate the policy that is due to the
emergencies of the hour. The in?
cendiary appeals of demagogues fall,
if not unhoeded, at least impatiently,
on the public ear. All men who re?
flect calmly upon "the situation ac?
knowledge the wisdom and states?
manship of the Executive action,
and the country is ready to support
its Chief Magistrate in the consum?
mation of his plan of reconstruction.
Such being the popular sentiment,
let Mr, Johnson take advantage of it
to push the political war with vigor.
The bluster of the radicals betrays
their weakness. They require the
stimulants of noisy wrath to sustain
them from drooping at the very crisis
of the conflict. They exhibit all the
symptoms of desperation, and, after
the first ebullition of their 'renzy,
will come their exhausti'. .? their
hopelessness and complete /conifit
ure. The President can t i 1 noth?
ing, may lose much, by te yorising.
His enemies do not spart him; let
him not spare them. He has to deal
with fanatics who will use every wea?
pon within their reach to annoy, to
weaken and to crush him. But, sup?
ported by the popular will, he wields
an influence that can put down all
opposition. He has taken up the
gauntlet; now let him call to his aid
all the decision and energy of his
character and push tho battle to an
end.-Nein York Neics.
The "Washington National Intelli?
gencer states that statistics at the
Treasury Department show that tho
commonly received opinion that there
is a balance of exports over imports
in our foreign trade, is without found?
ation. The official values of the ex?
ports are currency values; the values
of imports are gold values; and, con?
sequently, for the purpose of compa?
rison, it becomes necessary to equal?
ize them. For the three years, 1863,
'64, and '65, the imports amount to
$876,000,000 in gold, while the ex- ]
ports, valued officially in currency at
$972,000,000, when reduced to a
gold standard, are $662,000,000, leav?
ing, instead of an overplus in our
favor of $156,000,000, a deficit of
$154,000,000. This is the true condi?
tion of our foreign trade, and proba?
bly explains the great flow of our
Government securities to Europe.
So many and so variant have been
the rumors in circulation relative to
the Cabinet, that we are pleased to
find in the New York Times what we
suppose to be an authoritative decla?
ration, that there is the "highest au?
thority for stating that Mr. Stanton
fully approves the President's action,
and it is a so true that the entire
Cabinet are a unit on the same ques?
tion. The President is fully sustain?
ed by his Cabinet. "
