Tho President declared himself emphati?
cally against the plan of tho Committee,
and opposed all conditions precedent to

Thc Late Confed?rate Loan.
WASHINGTON, April 3D.-The Secretary of
War, by directum of tho President, lias
examined certain papers submitted to him
relating to the late Confederate loan.
Among them is a communication dated
London, March 10, 180G, and signed by
order of S.'r Provo Wallis, K. C. D.; E.
Morgan, Secretarv; FrauclB Phillips, C. M.
T. Weston, W. M*. Morgan, J. M. Howey.
Tho plan which they propose is that the
United States Government shall furnish to
that committee a copy of the contract
which tliev say was made between Erlanger
?S. Co., of Paris, and the late Confederate
Government, at liichmond, together with
the particulars of the settlement of tho
same. The commit tee promise t ii at the out?
standing Confederate cotton loau bonds

United States for cancellation, thc bond?
holders to guarantee that either they ot*
their friends will subscribe forthwith tb a

revenues of these States. lu the event of
the credit of the Southern States being
restored through tho in?uence of the lust
mentioned operation, a second loan of
?5,000,000 is to be taken at sixty per cent.,
within three mouths after tho placing of
the first loan upon thc market. In the
event of such second loan being successful,
then a loan for ?10,000,000 is to be taken at |
seventy per centum, after a like interval of

THE NEW ASSOCIATE JUSTICE OF
THE SUPREME COURT.-We are pleased
to learn, as we do from the columns
of a radical journal, that Mr. Stans
berry, af ter Johnston surrendered to
Sherman, wrote a series of articles to
show that on the disbanding of the
Southern army tho Confederate
States at once resumed their old place
and power in the "Onion. This is ex?
actly what the President teaches in
all his messages, and we are much
pleased to be told that the new Asso?
ciate Justice holds such sound doc?
The same journal informs us that
Mr. Stanaberry made a speech in
Cincinnati just before the war broke
out, in which he argued at length
that there 20uld be no war, because
the Govf nent had no authority to
nae coercen except to enforce the
laws, and force could not be used
until there was an indictment by
grand jury, and issue of a warrant
and resistance to the call of a mar?
shal of a posse ; and that as the mar?
shals and j?l other United States
officers in the South had resigned,
the condition in which alone force
could be used could not be fulfilled.

who swore that the editor had gone

As INFAMOUS FELLOW.-Yesterday
a gentleman wished to got his friend

the officer. "Been use ho is infamous

infamous person was soon informed
he might retire. But when, a few
minutes after his departure, the
deputy asked, '*What was that man

The Committee on the Distriet of
Obhiml ('will, it is said, report a bill
providing for qualified negro suffrage
hero. It gives the right to vote to
owners-of real estapa, owners of. per?
sonal property of -a certain- amount,
educated negroes, negroes who have
been in fixed industrial purauits for
five year*, und negroes who have
served in th? army or navy. All the
radicals are opposed to it.
The President has been much in
consultation with Democratic mem?
bers of Congress, and his pqiicy,
long since marked ont and announce*!,
will soon begin to be developed. If
the Senate are disposed to make war
on tho President, by refusing to con?
firm his appointments, or even by
bolder steps, tho President is quite
ready to meet them on their own
ground. Something startling in this
direction may soon bo, looked for.
Tiie project of equalizing the boun?
ties to soldiers will probably be aban?
doned. The subject has been ex?
amined by competent authority, and
it is said that it would seriously de?
range the national finances, and add
90,006,000 to tho national debt.
The National Intelligencer publishes
the advertisement of the Austrian
Minister, offering Iiis furnished resi?
dence for sale or rent. This is taken
as an intimation that Count Wyden
bruck contemplates being recalled at
an early period. He must be, if Mr.
Seward adheres to his declarations to
Mr. Motley, for the- Austrian troops
destined for service in. Mexico are
surely coming over. It is said that
the recent decision of Attorney
General Speed, that arms may be
sent across the Rio Grande to the
Juarists in Mexico, will be made the
subject of an immediate diplomatic
correspondence between thc Marquis
do Montholon and Mr. Seward.
Tho correspondent of the Balti?

Tho new project of reconstruction
from tlie committee of fifteen is the
subject of much remark. It was de?
sirable to many to know what the
President thought of it. That is well
ascertained and known. The Presi

I are more opposed to it than they were
j to tho first plan of the committee.
The Democrats in and ont of Con?

excludes their party from power for

of them say that it will not gc

WILL DUY Goons AGAIN ADVANCE? OU ;
this subject thc New York Sun take? a ;
j negative position, and reasons as follows:
"Thc price of r*iw cotton was, at one i
stage of tho war, over $1 per pound. Now i
the average price in New York is less than
forty cents ii pound, thu reduction being
caused, not by an increase of supply, for
little cotton has been grown since the high
figures were current; but it is caused by
the cert aim v of supply in the futurr. The
decline in the value of imported goods is
attributable partly to tho same cause, but
directly to the declino in gold. Now there !
is no probability that gold will advance to
I any material extent, nor is it likely that
I any new cause will intervene to occasion
i distrust in relation to the supply of cotton;
! consequently, thero is no ground upon
which to base the opinion that prices iu
i the dry goods market will again advance.
. The present decline har? boen very steady
and gradual, lt has occurred in spite of
the most strenuous opposition of tho
speculative interest, ami it may be set
