W lim ix Conting.
Tho National Republican, (official,)
of Friday, repeats what it has boforo
said as to the radical scheme for pre?
venting the Southern States from vot
ing|at the next Presidential election;
and reiterates, that in the event that
the electoral votes of thoso States
?would, nevertheless, electa President,
if counted-that candidate, whoever
he might be, would be President, or
wo would have another revolution,
more bloody perhaps tlifcu the one we
have passed thrpugh, because there
would be a loyal sentiment in tho
North to support the South in her
This statement, coming from the
official organ of the President, ?3 signi?
ficant ; but wc suggest that if the
Southern States bc reduced to a terri?
torial conditiou by Congress in tho
meantime, what advantage will the
interposition of President Johnson
be when the election of President
comes on? Oar opiniou is, that if tho
President intends to interfere at all
with the acts of this unconstitutional
Congress, he should do it long before
the time for the election of President.
There may not bc a Southern State
in existence at that time-that is, as a
sovereign State-and his interposition
would then come too late.
There is trouble brewing in the fu?
ture of our national affairs, which
may be arrested by firmness and
prompt actiou on tho part of the
Executive. One or other brauch of
the Government must direct the af?
fairs of the country ; but every right
thinking man will pray to save us
from the Congressional despotism
now being sought to be established
. by Stevens and Sumner.
According to the best authorities,
the wants of tho world in our greal
staple is estimated at 3,500,000 bales.
Putting down the products of thc
Southern States at 2,000,000 bales
which is above the mark; East Indie;
600,000 ; Egypt 800,000 ; Brazil foi
130,000 bales, gives a supply of 3,000,
000 bales. Setting the stocks oi
hand'afc the beginning of the yea;
against those that will be on hand a
the close, wo have then a deficiency
in the supply of 2,000,000 bales.
Under these circumstances, it i;
reasonable to anticipate an advanci
in the price of cotton, or at least tba
it will not decline, and will, doubtless
advance more than the/scant suppl
would warrant. Tho advance in prici
very often goes ahead of the real de
ficiency of the supply, for the ver
apprehension of a short supply ofte-?
increase's prices far beyond thei
As far as we can observe from ou
exchanges in the gulf cotton-growinj
States, and in the States of the Mis
sissippi valley, the cotton crop of th
whole Southern States will not mue
ixceed 1,500,000 bales, although i
may reach 1,800,000. Wo will take
for instance, a case ia Alabama, J
planter of that State offers to the Mc
bile Tim's a list of fifty plantation
in Noxubee valley, in which wer
. raised in 18G0, 5,513 bales of cottoi
this year the crop is but 1,207-a d<
ficiency of -1,000 bales. Besides fchi
falling off in the staple, the write
thinks there is only about one-tent
of a crop of corn or meat.
From Louisiana, Arkansas, an
other States, we have pretty muc
the same accounts, and we do uc
think that we have any cause t
change onr earlier estimates, made i
the Phoenix at the opening of th
season-say 1,500,000 bales.
We place these estimates before or
cotton-growing friends, and lea?
them to govern themselves in the di
position of the staple. Our opinic
is, that cotton cannot materially d'
cline in price, and our belief is th
it will advance. The movements i
cotton must of course be governed I
the absolute wai'ls and rn cessities <
the producer; but as a general ml
we think those who can hold on i
their cotton bales, will not lose I
MAKTIAI? LAW DECLARED ru MJ
SOURI.-Gov. Fletcher has declar?
martial law in Ray and Platte Cou
ties of Missouri, and has marched
strong force to these Counties. Son

and horse thieves, robbers ai

The North lind Sooth.
Tho New York Sun, of Friday, says:
"The late commercial depression at
the North is attributed by the liich
mond Enquirer to our unsatisfactory
relations with the South, and to what
it deems the impolitic attempts of
Congress at reconstruction. It is no
doubt, true, that if the South held
its old relations to the North thc con?
dition would be one more favorable
to trade and commerce between tho
two ; yet it must not ho supposed
that tko North depends for its pros?
perity on the continuance of Southern
trade. New York has never, at any
time, reached so high a degreo of
commercial prosperity as during the
war, when all Southern communica?
tion was entirely suspended. Al?
though some brandies of industry
suffered, others received a propor?
tionate stimulus, and the condition
of the entire North was so far from
ruinous, as Southern predictions
would havojuad it. "
Tho New York Sun knows better
than tho sham statement it makes
above. Whatever of prosperity the
North enjoyed during the war, ema?
nated from tho United States Treasu?
ry, in the shape of shoddy contracts,
pickings, stealings, &c. If this were
not tho case, what is the cause of tho
depression in business, the Sun itself
records from day to day.
THE GOVEKN-MENT REVENUE.-It is
stated in advices from Washington,
that tho radicals will make a deter?
mined and persistent effort to de?
tach tho entire control of the Govern?
ment revenue from the Executive, in
order that they may possess greater
facilities for plunder and spoils.
From the foreshadowings already
made, there is nothing at which the
\ radical majority will hesitate, and
it is evident that the leaders have
made up their minds either to control
the whole machinery of government,
or to utterly destroy it. Snmner
has so avowed, Stevens has so avowed,
and so have tho rest of the leaders,
and what they dictate, the balance
will subscribe to.
The President has discomfitted
the thimble-rigging politicians, by
ignoring the discussion of constitu?
tional amendments and the negro
suffrage issue. He knew that a mes?
sage to Cougress was not the proper
place to discuss questions so wholly
within the province and jurisdiction
of the States; but the thousand and
ono wiseacres who think they could
conduct the Government as easily as
they throw off a political paragraph,
would have had him discuss and
arguefy every topic in the range of
governmental sci euee, and provoked
a controversy with every crotchet in
THE DEMOCRATS-The correspi.ri?
dent of the New York Times ^writes
from Washington, that the Democrats
have had no formal caucus, but have
nevertheless resolved, after holding
several informal conferences, to be
less belligerent than they were at the
last session-hoping that the radicals,
if allowed rope enough, will hang
themselves. The honest people of
the country will rejoice if the anti?
cipated result shall follow.
The radicals of the North are
attempting to alter human nature,
and reverse the current of human
feeling. They think to make a peo?
ple towards whom they arc manifest?
ing a fiendish hate, and loading with
opprobrium and oi>pression, admire,
imitate, fraternize and love them.

The Pardoning Power.
In thc seventy-fourth number of

ing of the pardoning power in the
Constitutian, its intentions and uses,
and aTter having argued that if it
were committed to Congress it might
be corruptly abused to too great
"On the other hand, when the se?
dition had preceded from causes
which had inflamed the resentments
of tho major party, they might often
be found obstinate and inexorable
when policy demanded a conduct of
forbearance and clemency. Eut thc
principal argument for reposing the
power of pardoning iu this orno in
tho Chief Magistrate, is this: In
seasons of insurrection and rebellion,
there are often critical moments,
when a well-timed offer of pardon to
the insurgents or rebels may restore
thc tranquility of the commonwealth;
and whioh, if suffered to pass unim?
proved, it may never be possible
afterwards to recall. The dilatory
process of convening the Legislature,
or orre of its branches, for the pur?
pose of obtaining its sanction, would
frequently be the occasion of causing
to let slip the golden opportunity.
The loss of a week, a day, an hour,
may sometimes be fatal."
This great authority would seem to
conclude that the thirteenth section
of tho Act of 18G2 was unnecessary to
endue the President with complote
powers over the whole question,
either before or after the conviction;
and that the Constitution gives to thc
President power to extend amnesty
by proclamation, which would work
a remission of all statutory penalties
The National Intelligencer, of Thurs?
day, in an article on the ' political
If tho State Government in Ver?
mont was destroyed by an English
invasion which held possession of
that territory for one or more years,
it would be in the power of the peo?
ple-nay, it would be their inalienable
right-to meet in convention and re?
organize a State Government. And
if the State had been held so long by
British bayonets that many of the
people had succumbed and united in
the institution of a different Govern?
ment, they would not, by that Act,
be debarred from taking part in the
reconstruction as citizens of Vermont,
unless there was law to prevent it.
All that the Executive would have to
do with the question, would be to as?
certain and jinnounce that military
resistance was so far overcome as to
justify the people in the re-establish?
ment of civil authority. Virtually
this was done. On occupying thc
South, military law was gradually
withdrawn, and as fast as the State
Governments were rehabilitated, thc
civil authority was substituted for thc
We do not deny that if Congress
had been in session it might have
taken the determination of this ques?
tion out of the hands of the Execu?
tive. But unless this power was exer?
cised, it would be bound by his acts.
Congress never made but one attempt
to determine on what basis the peo?
ple should exorcise their indefeasible
right of re-organizing their State go?
vernments when overthrown by the
rebellion, and that was defeated by
Mr. Lincoln's failure to sign the bill.
In the absence of any legislation tc
control him, the President was sole
judge, subject only to the limitations
of the Constitution and of expresi
statutes. The recusant citizens, ir

The New York Herald, of Friday,
The republicans of 0 ):iu?r,!?< luve
resolved, among other things in cau?
cus, to provide by law :
FIRST-That no name shall be planed
on the roll of the next Congress ex?
cept from States entitled to represen?
tation by law.
SECOND-That no electoral votes
shall be counted for President and
vice-President (1868) cast by any
State excluded from Congress.
THIRD-That tho first session of
the fo- iieth Congress, instead of
meeting ;n December, as usual, shall
meet on the 4th of March next, at the
close of the present Congress.
Considering, therefore, that the
House, byan overwhelming majority,
has resolved to adhere to the pending
constitutional amendment as the ba?
sis of Southern restoration, this pro- j
gramme simply means that the ex?
cluded States shall have no voice in
Congress or in the approaching Presi?
dential election, unless they abandon
meantime their present declared pur?
poses of holding out against the
amendment. "To this complexion
they must come at last," and the
sooner the better. This is thc whole
case in a nut-shell.
This is our future. The establish?
ment of a perpetual Congress, we re?
gard as tire worst form of a despot?
ism, for in this way that body would
acquire a power th ot would eventual?
ly overwhelm the executive and judi?
ciary deportments of the Govern?
So lona; as thc several departments
of the G*overnment confined them?
selves to the sphere of their constitu?
tional duties, thc Government was
well managed, and there was little
danger as to an infraction of the
Constitution, or to the liberties of
tho people. But tho law-making
power of the Government has usurp?
ed all power-extinguishing sover?
eign States, taking charge of the
Treasury departmeut, and over-riding
the conservative provisions of tho
Constitution, and setting at defiance
all remonstrances from the Execu?
tive. They thus install a despotism
which must bring the country to
If the present Congress persists in
the course which it seems to have set
out upon, no one can tell to what
dire evils it will lead. Lord Erskine,
in the British House of Commons,
once described a crew animated by
similar motives. He said:
"There are wretches, also, without
virtue, labor, or hazard, who "are
growing rich as their country is
impoverished. They rejoice when
obstinacy, ambition, or folly adds
another year to slaughter and devasta?
tion, and laugh from behind theil
desks at bravery and science, while
they are adding ligure and cypher tc

from a new armament, and Computing

Washington correspondent of thc
We have good authority for saying
that Gen. Grant has not, up to thii
hour, received a word touching tin
reported entrance of Gen. Sedgwick
into Matamora8 and the military ope?

received a letter from Gen. Sheridan,
dated November 29, five days afte?
the reported entry into Matamoras
in which he says ho had ordered Gen
Sedgwick not to make his propos?e
movement, as tho same was entireb

TUE COTTON TAX.-A despatch o
the 6th from Now York'says :
At the regular meeting of th
Chamber of Commerce this aftei
noon, a memorial was read prayin
Congress to abolish tho export dut
on cotton. Figures were given t
show the relative production of col
ton here and in Europe, and that nc
only the control of the Europea
market is impracticable, but thu
American cotton is likely > becom
more and more insifinifieant in tha
market unless the exportation of th
staple is perfectly free of ? .ty. 1
was thought tho revenuo 'rom th

After a long struggle, the South
foresaw her doom and final overthrow 1
as a slave power. She first saw it in :
the accession of free territory and
free States as an acquisition from
Mexico and of the war. She then saw
it under the operation of the compro?
mises in 1854, and sought to retrieve
what she had lost, twenty-four years
before; and this effort to recover her
political po .ver precipitated her fall
it brought thc repeal-and the strug?
gle in liaijsits was bub a light-house,
showing that we were plunged into
the sea of revolution in which we are
still wallowing and/iounclering, unable
to return to that haven of security we
once left, while the. fowls of the air
and tho birds of prey are chanting
their wild orgies and screams to dim
our joys and to make night hideous.
The North elected its own president;
the South then Sought to gain its
equilibrium in compromise. The
North said the. day of compromise is
past-not that the South had been
perfidious-the North had offered the
compromise in 1820, and each section
had changed position in 1854-so we
had rendered the compromise in the
Constitution worthless for the recove?
ry of slaves; and how, then could we
throw stones against the windows
of our neighbo*? All these things
had flown oat of the heajt of Aboli?
tionism, its struggle with our organ?
isms as a nation, and, finally, the
South sought to separate from us and
become a State of itself; that act wo
called rebellion, and unjustifiable dis?
ruption of the Government. War
came, and tho South failed, because it
was not united. Now it is subjugated,
overthrown, and statesmen tell us
that it is no longer States-no longer
societies with sovereign law-it has
no rights which we are bound to re?
spect. Such is the final conclusion
of the out and out radical.
But the end is not yet. States,
governments, societies and men will
docay and perish. But when ? That
history will aus wer; and yet justice
will yet retrieve herself in the bosoms
of men. The men of freo States have
never been trampled upou, but they
would rise again to shake off despo?
tism and tyrants. History teaches
us that, and we may disregard her
admonitions until it is too late to
save the Republic furthercoutention.
There is a (Jod in Israel, and menah di
not always trample on his laws.
This sounds to our ears as the very
voice of prophecy. We are convinced
that, unless the contentions that di?
vide the sections of this country are
quieted by the exhibition of a proper
ciisposition on the part of the North,
this country will cither be converted
into a despotism, or will bo split
asunder during the next two years.
Free people cannot be enslaved. Jus?
tice cannot be trampled on with im?

FROM WASHINGTON.-Tho corres?
pondent of the Baltimore Sun writes:
The Senate has adjourned until
! Monday, to enable the committees to
arrange business for this session of
Congress. Another purpose of this
adjournment is to enable the Repub?
lican Senator-; to hold a caucus, which
meets to-morrow, at 12 o'clock m., to
consider what action shall betaken on
the House bill providing for the
repeal of tho thirteenth section of tho
law empowering the President to
grant pardon and amnesty, etc. ; also,
to determine what shall be done with
the measures proposed by the caucus
of Representatives last night. It is
understood, too, that the several bills
to regulate tho tenure of office, and
Mr. Kelley's bill to create the internal
revenue department, will bc discussed
in the Senate caucus.
Objection is made especially to tho
feature of Mr. Kelley's bill, which
gives control of tho internal revenue
department effectually to the Supreme
Court, which tribunal, it is claimed,
would be prostituted to political and
financial interests should thc bbl be?
come a law.
T;rK Porn.-The religious journals

speedily after leael to his expulsion.
In consequence, those journals not
only nrgo the Holy Father to depart,
