ment, to which it is known the President
is firmly opposed.
WAsnrxoTox, Juno 13. In Mn- Senate, !
Mr. Doolittle called up tho resolution of?
fered by him yesterday, requesting Jhe
President to com) omicate to the Senate
any information in his possession relative ;
to the departure of Austrian troops from
Mexico. He ?aid he had reasons to believe ;
the above would bring information of very j
satisfactory clraractfer, and felt confident j
that Mexico was about to he evacuated hy ,
the French troops. The resolution w as I
adopted. The legislative appropriation !
bill was eonaidercd.
The Hom.c proceeded to the considera- I
tion of the constitutional amendment as
reported from the Reconstruction Com- ;
raittee, which heretofore passed the ;
House, and waa amended by tho Senate, j
Referring to the b:isis. ol' representation, :
repudiation of the Confederate debt, etc., j
Mr. Stevens proposed, and the House at- i
tempted, to debate the subject for a short i
time-speeches being limited each to tit'
toed minutes. Mr. Stevens closed the de
bate by sayiug that the amendments were j
not such as he desired, as they did not re- ;
cognize the right of black nicn to vote.
He, however, said that something
might he done ou this subject in future le
gialation. He took occasion to stigmatize
the President aH a usurper in undertaking
to establish civil government in the se- '
ceding States. Under his demand for the
previous question, the House concurred in
the Senate's amendments to thc constitu?
tional amendment, hy a vote of 120 to 32.
The Speaker, therefore, announced the
passage of the joint resolution. Several |
gentlemen announced thc reasons for the
absence of their colleagues, who, they say,
if present, would have voted for the propo?
sition. Mr. Eldridge, as a take-o? upon
those gentlemen, said thu t, if Brooks and
Voorhees had not been unseated, thoy
would have voted against the proposition".
[Laughter.] Mr. Schenck retorted hy say?
ing that he had no donbt if Jeri. Davis
was a member of the House, he, too, would
have voted against the amendment. ;
[Laughter.] On the Republican side, :
tue vote consolidated tho Republicans i
of every shade, including Smith, of Ken - I
tucky, Raymond, of New York, SVhaley ituil j
Lathrop, of West Virginia. Thc negative
was eonipoaed wholly of decided Demo?
crats. The proposed constitutional amend?
ment will now bo submitted to the Logis-I
lat urea of tho respective states for their ;
action. Mr. Stevens pro J. JSCI! ? substituto .
for the pending bdl, as reported hy thc ;
Reconstruction Committee, to enable the
States lately in rebellion to regain their
privileges in the Union. The material
?oint in the substitute is thc admission ol

tially to every class, besides ratifying'the.

JUDGE UNDERWOOD AS A NEOEO
SELLER.-The Warrenton Index copies
from the records of Fanquier County
a part of an answer to a bill in
chancery, which answer was filed in
1853 by Underwood, and in which
the Judge "insisted that in making
distribution of the personal estate |
referred to in said bill, the share of
the slaves which may be allotted to 1
the said Flora V. Floreo shall be sub?
jected to the paymentof the said Mrs.
Elizabeth Jackson's share of said
Parries from the North are to put I
up 500 neat dwelling-houses at New?
port News. Newport News was, for
a- long time, an important point !
during military operations on the
Peninsula, lt is nt the juncture of '
James Uiver and Hampton Roads,

between tho Merrimac and the fri?

- Kn mp run Congres*. J?T .1
As this body will' -convene shortly,.
we take the following article from the
London Times as to its character,
and as tb what it can and cannot do:
No general war ever breaks ont in
Europe without being preceded by a
proposal emanating from-some, quar?
ter or other to refer all matters in
dispute to. a congress. - Everybody
always professes his readiness to em?
bark in it, bntvnobody wiU undertake
to abide by its decisions. It is an
admirable means for gaining time,
and for investing extravagant and
overbearing proposals with a spuri?
ous and delusive semblance of mode?
ration; but it is the most unlikely
way in tho world to solve any serious
and envenomed difficulty. If, in?
deed, the congress were prepared, as
is said to lravo been suggested by the
Emperor of Russia, to enforce by
arms its decisions against dissenting
members, a machine would be pro?
vided ready to the hands of an am?
bitious power which might work re?
sults ns disastrous to the liberties of
Europe as the Amphictyonic Coun
cil under the presidency of Philip of
Macedon did to the liberties of an?
cient Greece. But though the deci?
sion of a congress might possibly be
suggested by jnstice, the execution
ol them would infallibly be dictated
by policy, and we shonld probably
not have long to wait before we wit?
nessed as gross an abnseof the power
of carrying ont tho general decree as
that which Austria and Prussia ex?
hibited when they undertook to act
as the agents of tho Germanic (Jon
federation in the. case of Denmark.
A congress ia often an excellent
means of giving effect to rights which
have been previously established by
an appeal to arms. It can reduce
into form and give permanence to the
well-ascertained resulte of victory and
defeat. But when countries carry
their preparations for war to such
lengths as Prussia, Austria and Italv
have now done, they must look foi
tho adjustment of their rights ant]
the "settlement of their qnarrel to ar
agency more efficient than that of ar
European congress. They can, ii
they please, draw back from the ex
treme pretensions they have pat for
ward, and assume again thc tone o:
moderation they have discarded; bm
we shall require much stronger cvi
dence than anything which hits ye
come to our hands before we believi
that Austria, for instance, will sub
mit her right to Venetia to an Eu
copean congress; that Italy after
having given Garribaldi a coiumam
and called upon the revolutionary
party to aid her, can undo all thea*
things, and wait patiently for th
tardy decision of a conclave of diplo
matists. We sincerely hope we ar>
mistaken, but it would seem ?vs if al
parties had been careful to clos
against themselves this loop-hole o
escape. An intimation i rom the Em
perdr of the French that he is i:
earnest opposed to the war, and wi!
take a definite and intelligible cours
immediately against the first nggrei
sion on its breaking ont, would hav
more effect than the deliberation c
any European congress. Wc hay
no doubt that he possessed th
power, had he chosen to use it, t
prevent the storm. It may be
question whether it has not now ai
quired dimensions which even h:
skill is tmable to subdue.

AN INFAMOUS SCHEME FOB OPPRESSING
To carry into-effect the constitu?
tional amendment as it passed the
Senate, it is now proposed to frame
a concurrent resolution binding
each house not to admit any rep?
resentative from any one of tue
excluded States until the State
shall formally adopt the terms of the
proposed amendment. The bill re-.
?ported from the Committee of Fif?
teen for this purpose would be ve?
toed. .It is necessary, therefore, to
Kit it in the same form by which the
epublican canons resolution was
passed at the opening of the session,
. and thus evade the veto. No Senator
or Representative from a seceded
State, even if prepared to take the
iron-clad oath, can therefore be ad?
mitted to a seat, even after the con?
stitutional amendment shall have
received the ratification of twenty
seven States, unless bis State shall
have accepted the terms as a condi?
tion precedent to its representation,
either in whole or in part. Senator
Johnson, in his able speech against
the proposed amendment, declared
that no Southern State would ratify
it.-Cor. Ballimore Sun.

THE OLD SCHOOL PRESBYTERIAN
I ASSEMBLY.-The New York News, of
j the 11th, has the following note:
I A radical subscriber to the St.
I Louis Republican, who is angry with
the editor of that paper for having
given a "gross insult" tn the "loyal
body of the Old School Presbyterian
General Assembly and others," in a
late issue, has written a note to the
editor demanding that his linnie be
erased from tho subscription books
of the Republican. Whereupon the
editor expresses his regret at the un?
fortunate occurrence, but insists that
! the "majority of the Old School
I Presbyterian Convention were a
I shabby set of canting, puritanical,
1 hypocritical, political demagogues,
nevertheless." The Republican is
candid, certainly, and the Old School
Presbyterians must put np with thc
unflattering likeness, the result of
! too much friendly officiousness.
HARPER'S ILLUSTRATIONS -GENERAL
SCOTT.-The New York World says:
"Harper's Weekly insults the pub
lie and the memory of Oeueral Scott,
with a sheet full of hideous pictures
j purporting to represent the scenes of
! the death-bed and the grave of Gene
j ral Scott. They are without excep
j tion disgusting blotches, disgraceful
to American art and enterprise, lt is

DANGEB TO THE THRONES FROO?
WAR.-The London TW??, pf May
26, says: We have mach . to hope
from the strong disposition of tho
greater part of Europe for peace. Of
the temper of the Germans it is un?
necessary to speak,, and the French
are scarcely less unwilling to see war
again break out. A great, if a gra?
dual, change in their character has
long been in progress, and the nation
which for so many years was the
terror of Europe, is now-as a
nation--devoted to thc pursnits of
peace. The finance of the Empire
has given almost every individual an
interest in the imperial funds, and
railway and other stock is held very
largely by every class of the popula?
tion. The savings of every one,
whether tradesman, artisan, or pea?
sant, have been imperrilled by the
fall in all kinds of securities since
the first rumors of war. The
people see with apprehension the in?
terruption of commerce and commu?
nication. The cause of Italy has never
been so popular as might have been
expected from a past alliance and the
remembrance of common victories,
and Prussia has never recovered in
France the memories of 1814 and
1815. The Emperor Napoleon, too,
as well as the other sovereigns of the
Continent generally, may well 6ee
with concern the dimensions and the
direction which this conflict is taking.
The Italian Government has called
popular enthusiasm to its aid, and,
in continenttd parlance, allied itself
with the revolution. Tho King of
Prussia is talking about universal
sufirage, and a radical reform in the
German Constitution. What may l>e
thc relations of the Austrian [Em?
peror towards his less well affected
and non-German provinces three
months after the outbreak of a war
is as yet hidden in the future. Bat
thero is a feeling that this war, if
once begun, will assume a revolu?
tionary character. If these millions
of men meet in conflict, thrones will
not remain where they are. German,
Italian, Magyar, Czech and Pole will
be moved :is they never were moved
Such convulsions may be inevitable
in the progress of nations, but they
are not pleasing to emperors and
kings. Tho position tho masses have
taken in these countries, the intense
interest of all classes, the enthusiasm
of one country, the indignation of
another, and the proof which has
been given that, if the sovereigns
mise a tempest, they will not be able
to lay it, must have its effect upon
every wise ruler, however exalted his
rank and extensive his power.
SisocTiAi: DISCOVERY, OP HIDDEN
TREASURES BY INDIANS.-The Carrol
ton (Illinois^ Democrat says: For some
I time past a party of Iudians, num?
bering fifteen, belonging to the Che?
rokee tribe, have been encamped
upon tho banks of the illinois River,
ten miles from this place. Their os?
tensible object was fishing, hunting,
&c, but it appears from recent de?
velopments that their chief aim was
to secure a hidden treasure of seven
urns of Spanish coin which had been
I imbedded in tho bluffs at that point
in years gone by, by their ancient
forefathers. They seemed to be ex?
tremely cautious in their manners,
lest the pale face should discover the
cause of their presence in that par?
ticular locality, and wrest the coveted
prize, for which they had traveled
many miles. After ihligent search,
which occupied some ten or twelve
days, they succeeded in finding the
spot where lay concealed the secret
of their researches. Little remains
to be told. Suffice to say that, af tor
due exploration, their brightest an?
ticipations were by far more than re?
alized. The urns of go.d and other
sacred relics spoken of by their chiefs,
long since gone to the happy '.hunt?
ing-grounds," were secured, and, on
yesterday morning, these untutored
children of the forest took their de?
parture for the far West, with many
thousand Spanish dollars to cheer
j them on their long and tedious
CHOLERA THEORIES. - in the course
of quite an animated discussion in the
United Statea Senate, the other day,
on the cholera question, Mr. McDou?
gall, of California, gave this pithy
"I am of the opinion that cholers
is the child of fear, and not the off?
spring of contagion. Men have theil
j own speculations upon it. I have
! mine. 1 mingled with it in ita firsl
' advent into the United States. 1 saw
I it face to face, und 1 saw it without
i fear, and therefore I did not get ;t.
i This thing of legislating against pes
! tilenee is mere child's play, and shoot
ing child's arrows at the moon."
That this is brimful of practical
good sense must be apparent to ever-}
I one who has gone through a choler?
j campaign. Fear and filth are what
the disease feeds on, and to one OJ
j the other may bo ascribed agr?ai

REPUBLICAN HARMONY.-The Alba
? ny Argua says: Thad. Stevens de
; dared, while he was applving the lash
i to his followers, who curled under his
dictation like whipped spaniels, that
i the clause disfranchising the rebels^
until 1870, was the "vital" point t<if
the whole proposition, and that, with
; out it, he would not give ..the snap
; of his finger for it." The proposi?
tion has gone before the Senate, and
i this "vital point" has been stricken
ont ht/ a unanimous rote. This shows
I that the party has no principle, no
fixed purpose or rule of action. The
