A IiMtarc from Over the Water.
The London Times gravely and
intelligently comments upou the
fanaticism of Stevens and his asso?
ciates in Congress:
If the proposal's of fir. Stevens and
his friends are adopted, the Union
?will never be restored at all. For an
indefinite time to come one-half of its
organized territories and one-fourth
of its citizens will be outside its
. ' pale, and even when they aro once
more included, it will not be upon
the original terms. In short, i he re
. ' * - suit of the war will not be the renewed
integrity of the Union by the reco?
very of the seceding States, but sim?
ply the reduction of those States to
the condition of conquered provinces.
This obvious conclusion would suf?
fice to convict the radical politicians
of wrong and violence, but it is plain?
ly asserted that the advocates of the
measures in question have not even
. the excuse of passion or fanaticism to
allege for their conduct. They are
' " not so much misguided as designing.
They are not fighting against princi?
ples dangerous to the commor.wealth,
but intriguing against a political par?
ty opposed to themselves. They wish
to preserve their majority in Congress,
and to turn the power so acquired to
their own advantage.
If the representatives of the South?
ern States were admitted, the Repub?
lican majority would be gone, and the
Republicans, therefore, are promoting
their own political interests in keep?
ing them ont. That, we are assured,
is the true explanation of their pre
* sent measures. We remarked upon
the probable influence of such mo?
tives, a few days ago, but our recent
correspondence represents these con?
siderations as actually deciding the
politics of the party. The escape
from the difficulty as now contem?
plated will appear singular enough.
The Americans have difficulties
enough already before them, without
the complication and aggravation
which political fanaticism would cre?
ate, and the wise and prudent policy
of President Johnson will certainly
be recognized in this country as ex?
pressing all thu best interests of the
A MATTER OF TASTE.-Some of the
newspapers, especially those who are
astounded by the sound constitutional
principles which the President once
more brings to their unwilling atten?
tion, were quite voluble about the style
of his 22d of February speech. As a
matter of taste, their delicate sensi?
bilities are much affected by particu?
lar passages. But as these complaints
come mostly from quarters where,
heretofore, such scrupulous nicety
was not manifested, it is probably
more the substance than the manner
that is the real cause of offence. It
may be assumed by some that it was
undignified in the President to name
individuals, as Sumner and Stevens
were named in this speech; but he
did not do so until he was called upon
directly for the names; and as Mr.
Johnson has been in the habit of
meetiug the people freely and openly,
he did not scruple to be plain, when
he found it necessary. Besides, in a
crisis of the country like thc present,
it cannot be denied that the people
should fully understand who the men
are that are undermining the Consti?
tution, and pressing with great zeal
various measures that tend to destroy
their liberties. The President is at
the seat of Government, with oppor?
tunities of knowing the secret plots
and the ultimate designs of these men
better than almost any other indi?
vidual in the country; and while these
mischievous men are at work to
change the form of our Government,
and are bitterly assailing the Presi?
dent in the halls of Congress, it is
best that he should expose them
plainly and by name, and point them
ont, together with those who follow
them, to the gazo of the American
people. It is well that he has dono
It is said that when Bishop Gregg
returns to Texas, he will take with
him at least ???20,000, with promises
of more in a short tims. This will do
much to restore his diocese to the
prosperity it er joyed before the war.
EFFORT TO RE-ESTABLISH THE GO?
VERNMENT WORKS AT HARPER'S FERRY.
A strong effort is being made before
the proper authorities for the re-es?
tablishment of the Government gun
shops and arseual at Harper's Ferry.
It is estimated that two millions of
dollars or thereabouts -will replace the
Government property at that point
destroyed during tho war, and the
Jefferson people are anxious that the
same should be appropriated. Mean?
while, orders have been issued from
the Ordnance Department for the
removal of the small remaining por?
tion of machinery and other armory
property at the Ferry to Springfield,
Mass. The lobbyists have interested
Forney in Haiper's Ferry, and a
noted female newspaper correspon?
dent has been employed by him to
write it up.-New York Herald.
THE PRESIDENT MEANT WHAT HE
SAID.-The Nashville (Tenn.) Banner,
whoso editor ought to know whereof
he affirms, declares that in the speech
mad? on the 22d February, denounc?
ing sumner and Stevens, "the words
of Andrew Johnson were deliberate
and well weighed. He is a man who
never goes off half-cocked. He may
seem to be impetuous, because when
he acts it is with vim and resolution;
but in every case his action is based
on premeditation, long and severe.
His masterly appeal to the people
breathes anything elso than the air
of an accidental shot. It was planned
long beforehand, aimed steadily, and
fired with wonderful precision. It
has struck, *'jo, and there are more
dead ducks lying about loose than
Ft ?rn ey."
