WASHINGTON, March 8.-In the Senate,
resolution? were offered declaring that to
Congress, afid not to the Executive, be?
long? the power of re-establishing civil
government in the lately seceded States,
pending the constitutional amendment.
In the House of Representatives, Mr.
Boutelle, from the Select Committee on Re?
co., .action, made a report, signed by
himself and Washburno, of Illinois, stating
that" East Tennessee is loyal, but Middle
and West Tennessee are * disloyal. Thev
propose, as aa additional condition for ad?
mission, that suffrage be conferred without
regard to race or color. A bill was debated
declaring all the blacks citizens, confer?
ring upon them equal rights and immuni?
ties, with power for their protection.
Progress of She Conflict.
* The conflict between the President
and the radicals in Congress con?
tinues to be the all-absorbing topic of
public attention. "While the Presi?
dent's policy is undoubtedly gaining
strength, the great question is whe?
ther he will be able to carry his points
in the present Congress. Of one
thing the country can congratulate
itself--the radicals will not succeed
in. any of their ultra, unconstitution?
al schemes, at the worst; therefore,
matters will only be left in their pre?
sent condition. Senator Sherman
has made a sort of half-and-half
speech, which, however, contained
more than an average amount of
sense for a Republican senatorial
effort; and Governor Cox, of Ohio,
comes before the public in a letter
detailing the substance of an inter?
view with Mr. Johnson, the point of
which is that the President is in earn?
est in hi? advocacy of his reconstruc?
tion policy. Both of these efforts
are doubtless intended to conciliate
the "party" towards the President
and what he has already done, and
reconcile them to the inevitable con?
dition of a stand-still policy rathei
than to hazard further attacks upon
him. They want their party to wait:
to do nothing; to keep their tongues
still, and see if "something will nol
turn up" to relieve them from the
necessity of a war with the President.
"If ever the time shall come," says
Senator Sherman in his speech,
"when I can no longer confide in de
votion to the principles upon whicl
he was' elected, I will bid farewell tc
Andrew Johnson with unaffected sor
r?V." There is not a single proposi
tion upon which Mr. Johnson wai
elected but what is to-day an accom
plished fact. The unconditional sur
render of those offering armed oppo
sition to the Government, and t
return to their just allegiance to th?
Ccfnstitution and laws of the Unitec
States, was the position of all partie;
at that election. That has been ac
complished. The party that nomi
nated Mr. Johnson, insisted upoi
the aboiitian of slavery, and ai
amendment of the Constitution pro
hibiting the future existence of tba
institution in the country. That ha
been done and ratified by the States
and universally accepted as an accom
plished fact. There were no furthe
principles laid down for the guidanc
of the President in the platform upo:
which Mr. Johnson was elected. Th
natural sequence which followed th
surrender was the re-union of th
country, and Mr. Johnson but accepl
ed the land-marks laid out by Mi
Lincoln as the basis of his policy. I
this he has been sustained by all pai
ties, till the Jacobins in Congres
seized the power of the legislativ
branch of the Government to thwai
his patriotic efforts.
The leaders in this rump Congres
do not want peace and re-union, fe
the reason that they know that, r
soon as the attention of the c ouutr
can be directed to the consideratio
of their financial policy, their mon<
poly and class legislation, their oj
pressive and unjust systems of e:
emptions and taxation, must go 1
the wall as a party, for the peop
will never submit to such odious sy
terns. They think by keeping up tl
sectional animosities upon which the
rode into power, they can keep the a
tention of the people away from tho:
issues and maintain their past -st
premacy. They wish to hold tl
South in vassalage, because to r
eoguize their rights under the Coi
stitution would settle all the dfticv.
ties of a sectional nature, and leai
i the people to consider those questio:
b which so largely enter into their ov
m prosperity and welfare. Presidei
W Johnson, however, has appealed
J the people, and it remains for tl
Republican party to settle its ov
! policy. They have either to yield
the demands of the President ai
complete the re-uuibn of the countr
i or meet him and the endorsers of 1
policy at the polls. In th*1 lat?
event their utter defeat and comple
discomfiture is certain.

* The Poetry of LOTO.
When Don Quixote de la Mancha
was asked to describe tho fair Dul?
cinea of whom he so often spake, he
replied, with commendable alacrity:
"But why should I undertake to de?
lineate and copy, % one by one, each
several perfection of the t peerless
Dulcinea? The task were worthy of
the pencils of Parahasius, Timantes,
and Apelles, or the graving tools of
Lysippus. The hands of the best
painters and statuaries should indeed
be employed to give, in speaking
paint, in marble, and Corinthian
brass and exact copy of her beauties;
while Ciceronian and Demosthenian
eloquence labored to reach the praise
of her endowments. " One naturally
infers from this little speech that the
Don was in love. Yet the fact that
.he made use of simple prose instead
of poor poetry as a medium for the
? expression of his estimation of the
female concerned, leaves room for a
doubt as to the correctness of such
an inference. Be this as it may, we
must leave the erratic old fellow at
this.point in order to consider a sub?
ject of vastly greater importance.
That males and females of all ages
and all conditions should, in the
course of their earthly existence,
lapse in love is expected as much as
that children will get the measles or
the whooping cough. Love, of course,
is an excellent thing. Nobody doubts
this, and probably nobody will, so
long as boys and girls and men and
women inhabit the earth. Excellent,
too, are its manifestations, though
comical to a disinterested observer.
But of all the manifestations of this
passion none is so frequent as poetry.
It seems to be almost a law of the
human mind that when one falls in
love the only vent for the feelings
should lie in verse. Men take to this
more readily, perhaps, than women;
and, very naturally, inasmuch as it is
regarded highly unbecoming for the
latter to do more than receive tho ad?
vances of the former. The quality
of the rhyme which is begotten undei
these circumstances, like that ol
mercy, is not strained, but droppeth
less gently and more frequently thar
the rain from heaven. Ono effusioE
of this sort per diem is a small allow?
ance for some persons, while others
are cool enough to be satisfied wit!
one a month. Just where the golder
mean hes, it is impossible to deter
mine. Love, like necessity, know!
no law. The number of those wlu
write good poetry is so very small ir
comparison with those who do not
that it occurs to us that a few hint:
to lovers who yearn for rhyme maj
be of value not only to them, but als(
to the unfortunate beings that are tc
be the recipients of their effusions
It must be understood, however, tha
what may follow applies only to tin
stronger sex, a .sense of gallantry
forbidding any direct instruction ti
No man really in love will obtair
the slightest relief from rhymes o
his own construction, unless he load:
his lucubrations with epithets. A ?o
vice in the business is safe in address
ing his beloved by the title of ai
angel. Aside from the fact that th
use of this word at once removes th
whole matter from the low plane o
earth, the rhynister may enjoy tin
sweet consciousness that the concei
can by no possible means be open tc
the charge of novelty. "Apple of rn;
eye" should be used sparingly, an<
never in the spring or summer, th
reason for which any horticultnris
can explain. In view of the poo
quality and. the high price of gas ii
this city, we would suggest that
young sprig, residing in the metre
polis, could not do better than to ad
dress the object of his affection as th
light of his heart, thus combining i
a very few words the two ideas of 01
nament and utility. Next in impor
tance to epithets is a portrayal of th
writer's feelings. Inasmuch as syn;
pathy provokes attachment, and al
tachment is closely allied to endeai
ment, the great object in view shoul
be to arouse sympathy on the part c
the recipient of erratic verse in belia
of the one who grinds them out. Th
most obvious way to accomplish thi:
is to represent one's self as sufferin
untold agonies. The rural genius
who began a long poem with th
''.Without thee, I'm lonely und sad,
But with thee, I never feel bad,"
evinced a thorough appreciation c
the principle involved, though fe
would regard his mode of applyin
it as the most mellifluous that cou]
be devised. It is always well to ador
a melancholy tone; to appear o
paper as do the professional mourne:
of whom we read as figuring at fun?
rals in England. Expressions lili
"despair," "anguish of soul," "ni
utterable sadness," "sorrow that cai
not be removed," may be used (?

confined to the privacy of confide
' tial intercourse, no complaint can
made; but when it thrusts itself u
der the public eye in newspapers a;
other periodicals, it is a proper sn
ject for comment. At some fntu
time we may collate a few specimens
of this sort of rhyme, as they come
to us day after day in print and in

content ourselves with these few
general observations upon the sub?

The Ult Amendment.
A speech of marked ability is said
to have been made in the House by
Hon. R. S. Hale, of Maryland, on the
last amendment to the Constitution.
It will be remembered that, by the
amendment, Congress is empowered
to secure by law to all the citizens of
the several States "equal protection
in the enjoyment of life, liberty and
property." This amendment was
originally presented by Mr. Bingham,
of Ohio, and referred to the Commit?
tee on -Reconstruction,
In discussing the propriety of its
adoption, Mr. Hale took the ground
that it, in effect, authorizes Congress
to pass any laws it may deem neces?
sary and proper for protecting citi?
zens of all the States in the enjoyment
of life, liberty and property; that it
may take all these matters into its
own control, subject only to the con?
dition that the protection thus
afforded shall bo equal. He regarded
this as a wide and dangerous depart?
ure from the fundamental principles
of the Government, and as completely
over-riding all the powers and rights
expressly reserved to the States by
the Constitution. He supported this
view in an argument of great clear?
ness and force-one which was not
affected or weakened in the least by
the attempts made to answer it.
The amendment, says the Balti?
more Transcript, seems to be only
another of the steps proposed by the
radicals in Congress, for a consolida?
tion of the central power, and the
complete overthrow of State authori?
ty. The steadiness with which this
purpose has been pursued shows that
it is not an accident of political action,
but a deliberate and distinct political
programme. It has more than once
been asserted in Congress, that as the
Southern States are now unrepre?
sented, and as the Northern States
thus have the opportunity to make
the Government precisely what they
would have it, they ought to embrace
it, and to pass such laws and such
amendments to tho Constitution as
will give them permanent and com?
plete control of the Government.
And the whole action of the radicals
in Congress has been steadily and
powerfully in that direction.
It is scarcely necessary to say that
this doctrine is one which may well
arrest the attention of the people of
the United States, and that it is im?
possible for those who attempt to
carry it into effect to escape the most
rigid scrutiny and responsibility at
TAXING THE FEDERAL DEBT.-A
correspondent of the Baltimore Sun,
writing from Washington, March 1,
"The loan or funding bill, submit?
ted at the commencement of the ses?
sion by the Secretary of the Treasury,
has met with much opposition in the
Committee of Ways and Means, and
in the House. The chief objections
fo it were founded in the great dis?
cretionary power which it invested in
the Secretary over the currency and
the finance of the country, on the
provision authorizing a foreign loan,
and on the legal tender, non-interest
bearing currency. The Committee
of Ways and Means deem it unneces?
sary to authorize any loan, inasmuch
as the revenue is adequate to the ex?
penditures of the Government, and
will afford a surplus for a sink?
ing fund towards the reduction of
the public debt. A redundant and
depreciated currency they deem as
essential to support the present sys?
tem of internal revenue. On the
whole, there is no prospect of any
legislation that will tend towards a
reduction of the currency.
"The question of taxing the Fede?
ral debt is not to be availed of by
this Congress. In some communi?
ties, Government securities form the
chief wealth cf the wealthier class,
and the exemption of those securities
from State and municipal taxation is
complained of as a grievance. At an?
other Presidential election, this ques?
tion might become mingled with po?
litics, and even tend to produce
opposition to measures for sustaining
the public credit.
"The Committee of Ways and
Means do not, however, propose to
depart from the policy of the Secre?
tary of the Treasury in thia respect. "
REMARKABLE FACT?.-The New
York Times says:
This country did more to feed Eu?
rope during the years 18G2, '63 and
'64, than in the three years which
immediately preceded the late war.
The quantity of wheat shipped in the
midst of the war was two and three
fourths times greater than before,
while the amount of ham and side
bacon was increased eight times. This
is certainly a remarkable exhibit,
when it is remembered that, during
these three years of war, we had au
average of a million of men in the
army, whose producing capacity was
for the time lost to the country. A
nation that can carry on the most stu?
pendous war of modern times, pros?
per meanwhile, and greatly increase
its exports of provisions, may well
astonish the wise ones of Europe.
There is no parallel to it in the world's
Patronage of Home Industry-.
In continuation of our remarks on
this important subject, we may add a
few additional suggestions. We have
already laid down the proposition
that the encouragement and support
of agricultural and industrial enter?
prises is really of more importance to
the South at this time than even the
admissior f her Senators and Rep?
resentatives in Congress; and why is
this? Because, having just emerged
from a long, bloody and disastrous
war, her every interest is prostrated,
all her resources are dormant, and
she is in almost an abnormal condi?
tion To bring back prosperity and
plenty to her borders, is the first duty
of every citizen; while the admission
of our Senators and Representatives
in Congress would give us no more
power in.that body than we now pos?
sess. In brief, we can get along very
well without the one, and we cannot
without the other. "Why, then,
should we disturb our equanimity or
perplex our brains about political
affairs, when there is so much to be
done in a wider and more important
field? Why should we stand with
heads uncovered and hats in hand,
vainly beseeching admittance to the
council halls of the nation, while
every interest of our unfortunate sec?
tion of the Union is crying aloud to
us to be up and doing, to work, to
bend ourselves to the task of regene?
ration with all the energies that we
are capable of? Rather let us erect
factories and foundries, machine
shops and furnaces ; rebuild our ruined
sanctuaries, establish schools and col?
leges; turn up the soil, plant, sow
and reap the rich harvest of plenty
and prosperity which will surely fol?
low honest industry and untiring
With white labor properly protect?

Cotton was wont to wield his scep?
tered sway, will again beautify the

Not only put your manufactories in
operation, but when the water-wheel
and the steam-engine have performed
their duty-when the loom, and the
spindle, and the anvil, have fulfilled
the objects for which they are in?
tended-when the fabrics and the
implements have been produced or
fashioned into shape-let us purchase
them here, rather than go abi*oad for
similar articles. Let us keep our
money at home ; let us encourage our
mechanics and laborers; let us sup?
port our own industry and enterprise;
for herein really lies the secret of our
independence-not a political inde?
pendence, (for to obtain that we have
vainly essayed and signally failed,)
but an independence of far more im?
portance, more enduring and more
worthy of our most strenuous efforts.
Such an independence as this will
witness every valley and every hill-top
crowned with the products of our soil
-every city swarming with a husb?
and prosperous people-every town,
village and hamlet increasing in
wealth and population. Such an in?
dependence will make us great,

THE YOUNG BLOODS OF NEW YORK.
The New York correspondent of the
Springfield Republican has the follow?
ing description of the young men of
that city who attend balls:
"Pale, bald, with poor physiques,
frivolous, dissipated, insane, one yard
of tape to th reo of cotton, written
over their faces, they are the weakest
specimens of humanity that one can
see in any quarter of the globe. I
know of no more disheartening sight
than to contemplate three of them in
a line. 'The masculine world is made
up of two classes,' said a clever young
lawyer, very much disgusted at being
mistaken for a 'dancing man'-'those
with brains and those with heels.'
'The feminine world is made of two
classes,' replied a lady-'those with
brains and those with pretty faces,
and I find that the latter are favorites
with the men!' 'You are right, and
so am I,' continued the lawyer.
.What do you suppose the. next gene?
ration will be?' 'Apes!' answered the
lady. These two individuals went
home in a very happy frame of mind."
During the violent hurricane of the
11th, on the French coast, 200 enor?
mous blocks of stone, placed in front
of the break-water at Cherbourg, to
protect it from the action of the sea,
were lifted by the waves and thrown
over the wall into the harbor. Forty
cannon, planted on the pier, were
thrown into the sea. Such a storm
had never before been experienced in
The British Government has
recently employed a largo number of
very modest-looking young English
ladies to travel in Ireland and pay
particular attention to the conversa?
tions going on in the cars, tteamboats
and hotels for the benefit of tho
Fenians. It was believed by the
authorities that Stephens would bo
arrested through tho exertions of
these women detectives.
The storage warehouse of Johnson,
Lane & Co., New York, was burned

The Cultivation of Cotton.
Several estimates, made some years
ago, of the expenses of cultivating
cotton under the old slave system, are
given in DeBow's Review, for Janua?
ry, 1866. One of the calculations was
for a plantation of 4,200 acres of land,
(2,700 in cultivation,) worked by 254
slaves, old and young, which pro?
duced 331,000 pounds of cotton, at
an expense of four cents seven mills
per pound. Another statement is
given of the expenses on an estate of
1,100 acres of land, worked by 120
slaves, which produced a crop of
128,000 pounds of cotton, at an ex?
pense of about six cents per pound.
It is probable that the present cost,
after allowance is made for liberal
wages to the freedmen, would not
greatly exceed the above estimates; it
would, we suppose, not be more than
doubled. Yet cotton ,is now selling
from forty-five to fifty-five cents per
pound in Northern cities, and will
probably command a very high price
for several years. The extraordinary
profits thus promised are producing,
as a natur.il result, the industrial con?
dition described below, in a Richmond
paper, which learns the facts from
In the Mississippi bottom, mules
aro worth from ?$200 to 8250 each,
and farm hands are paid $12 per
month, besides their rations of four
pounds of meat and a peck of meal
per week. All thc expenses of farm?
ing arc vastly increased, but cotton
is selling in Yazoo City at 52 cents
Northern capitalists, with their
usual keen appreciation of pecuniary
profit, have not been slow to-seize
upon the opportunities offered them
for making money in the rich bottom
lands of Mississippi, and have rented
plantations at apparently unreason?
able prices. Titree plantations on
the river, adjoining those of ex
President Davis and his brother Jo?
seph Davis, Esq., bring an aggregate
rent for the present year of 836,000,
and a plantation of 800 acres of
cleared laud on Deer Creek rents for
$10 per acre, the lessee contracting
to repair the negro quarters, and re?
build all the necessary fencing. It
may be estimated that bottom lands
will generally sell for about $20 per
acre, and they will rent for about
one-half the selling prices.
The people of Mississippi now in?
tend to devote all their energy to
making good crops of cotton. Tho
standard of value is changed, and an
heiress, instead of being worth so
many negroes, Ls now reputed to have
on hand so many bales of cotton.
There is every probability that the
negroes will work tolerably well with
proper supervision aud care; and if a
man lias not ready money, he can
rent his plantation for this year, and
be able with the proceeds to make a
good start for himself in 1867. One
year, or five, would be but a short
time in which to recover from the
effects of this tremendous ordeal
through which we have passed, and
if in 1870, the Mississippi planters
can equal their production of cotton
in 1860, they and the whole country
will be more than satisfied.
Pollard, of the Richmond Examiner,
in a recent trip North, says: "We
encountered "Ward Beecher on a rail?
road train, in which he was on his
way to Newburgh, there to deliver a
lecture. A change seems to have
come over the spirit of his dream. In
conversing with us, he avowed him?
self an accomplished peace mau.
Blood enough, he thought, had now
been spilt, and he was for mercy, for?
giveness and forbearance. He admit?
ted that his former violent views had
become modified, and he now cor?
dially endorses the Union policy of
the President. He alluded to the
case of Mr. Davis, and expressed the
hope that he would be tried, if at all,
by a civil tribunal, and if convicted,
pardoned. He contended that the
power of Mr. Davis was forever gone,
and that no good could result from
