The Coming Collnpac.
The New York Sun notes the fact
that the dominant party in Congress
have carried radicalism to such an
extreme that the people ar*? now pre?
pared to witness almost any action
on their part, without evincing sur?
The ultra measures of the party,
at first, excited deep interest in the
public mind; but they have lately suc?
ceeded one another so rapidly that
they have lost the attraction of no?
velty. WI cn the Constitutional
amendment was adopted by Congress,
the measure was tho subject of gene?
ral discussion throughout tho United
States, but now, Congress is almost
daily doing things that are ten times
more ultra than the amendment, and
yet tho people hardly notice them.
Tl: proposition to destroy tho
Southern States, in a political sense,
and resolve them back into Territo?
ries, is, perhaps, the most remarkable
measure ever offered in Congress, and
yet it has attracted but little public
Tho bill, which has passed both
Houses, giving the freest kind of suf?
frage to all colors in tho District of
Columbia, is scarcely remarked upon,
being evidently regarded as a broad
farce or disgusting spectacle, of which
even its authors will be glad to es?
cape the practical exemplification.
The bill, even, which was introduced
into the House on Tuesday, providing
for the practical overthrow of the
State Government of Maryland-a
State that was not engaged in the
rebellion-hardly attracts notice, and
so with the whole catalogue of radi?
The peoplejseem to have grown
careless and indifferent to the action
of Congress,pand the radicals, taking
this indifference for a tacit approval
of their course, are straining every
nerve for the perfection of ultraism.
It is a matter of regret, of course,
that prudence and judgment should
thus be cast aside by the controlling
party iu Congress, but, in truth, it
mayjbe for the best. Tho party are
determined to go to the end of their
rope, and the sooner they reach that
end, the better it will be for the
NEW DIFFICULTIES FOR FBANCE.
Napoleon seems to no sooner settle
one difficulty than another appears to
annoy him. He is now threatened
with an overpowering military organi?
zation in Northern Germany that will
make France an inferior military
power; and his own efforts to
strengthen the French army are
almost neutralized by the discontents
of the French people. Napoleon
certainly cannot hold much loDger
the prestige that once gave lustre to
his name, for the Roman failure, the
Mexican failure, the growing power
of Germany, and the French discon?
tents, all indicato that his Govern?
ment is much weaker than formerly.
Hon. Reverdy Johnson did a good
thing in urging before the Senate, on
Thursday, that such, attacks on the
United States Supreme Court as have
appeared in a Washington paper,
should not pass unnoticed. But his
words will have no effect upon the
men now in power, who maligned
the late Chief Justice Taney, and
even heaped their curses upon his
grave. They are determined to rule
FBOM MEXICO.-The New York
Herald, of Monday, says that it has
got advices to the 20th, from Vera
Cruz. It says :
The French had seized $200,000 of
the imperial treasure, and the steam?
er Eugenie had sailed with $600,000,
$400,000 of which belonged to the
French Government and $200,000 to
the citizens. One thousand French
troops had sailed for France. The
French steamer Panama arrived at
Vera Cruz with two hundred addi?
tional troops and a large quantity of
gunpowder. T.'te custom house was
seized by the French on the 9th inst.,
and when Maximilian presented
an order for $50,000 it was not
cashed. Maximilain left Orazaba on
the 12th instant for the capital. Mira
mon had fled to Queretaro to avoid
arrest by Marshal Bazaine, and Mar?
quez had made a decided failure in
his effort* to raise money for the Em?
peror. The war between Maximilain
and Bazaine had become open and
Information has been received at
the Interior Department of the dis?
covery of a number of rich silver
lodes in Coiuiado.
Oar exchanges, for sonic timo back,
have indicated, occasionally, the ap?
prehension of an approaching finan?
cial crisis, ami the Now York papers
received afc this'ofiico within the past
week, tells of tho speculators and
gamblers iufstocks and in tho neces?
saries of lifo staggering andjgrowing
faint in their enterprises; of the uni?
versal dullness of trade; of languish?
ing in tho mechanic arts; of idleness
iu tho ship-yards; of hundreds rind
thousands out of employment every?
where; and make ominous mention
of those signs -which betoken a grand
crash. Mobile und New Orleans add
their hoarse murmurs to the gather?
ing gloom. Wo now cite an instance
from New York, from the Superin?
tendent of ^tho Fivo Points Houso of
Industry. He says:
"As a friend of and worker among
the poor-to those who are unem?
ployed anywhere, do not como to
New York. There are thousands of
men and women here out of employ?
ment, and many of them in a suffer?
ing condition. Thero are scarcely
any branches of work that have not
an overstock of workmen, sud hun?
dreds of men could bo hired here for ?
little more than their board. Let
unemployed men go anywhere in the
country and work for their board,
rather than come to New York."
To this statement, the New York
Day Book has the following sensible
"God only knows what is in store
-for our country. Tho madness of
Abolition has struck ont for our ex?
istence at a single blow 4.000,000
bales of cotton, -100,000 hogsheads of
sugar, and over $2,000,000 worth of
rice. These three staple articles of
commerce are nearly gone, and how?
ever people may try to think other?
wise, they will remain goue so long
as the Abolition policy continues to
rule our country. This is a fact that
may as well be looked squarely in the
face first as last. It is estimated that
there are MO,000 Southern men now
in New York, who havo como here
since tho war. The breaking down
of production in the South is the
solo cause of it, not the result of the
war, ns many suppose. If the labor
system of the South had not been
disturbed, she would have rapidly re?
cuperated. ,r,,o effects of the war
would even now have been scarcely
visible. But the overthrow of pro?
duction has chained the Southern
people to poverty, and in the end it
will drag down tho whole country
with them. What need of building
ships in New York to carry cotton,
sugar and rice, when there arc none
to carry? The failures that have
already taken place are but the pre?
lude of the financial storm. The
North has rioted in its ill-gotten
wealth only to full the harder when
the hour of ifs punishment has ar?
Thero is a whole volume of truth
in these brief remarks of the Day
Book, and the Northern people will,
sooner or later, find it out.
AN ARCH OF IP.ON AND COAL.
When Queen Victoria made her recent
visit to Wolverhampton, England, to
dedicate the statue to Prince Albert,
her escort passed under six triumphal
arches on their way through the prin?
cipal street. The chief of these arches
was one of iron and coal, to which
the Earl of Dudley contributed
twenty-five tons from one of his
famous colleries, some of it being
hewn into blocks weighing two tons
each. There was also an arch com?
posed of hardware and japanned
goods, among which coal scuttles
were quite conspicuous.
THE IMPEACHMENT OF THE PRESI?
DENT.-The Radical leaders are play?
ing upon and plying Congress to
impeach. Wendell Phillips is out in
a long letter for it, under his own
signature, denouncing Senators for
want of pluck, and spurring up the
representatives of thc people. Phil?
lips and the like evidently want
another civil war-Phillips, as a
stormy petrel, to live in a typhoon,
others to have fresh opportunities to
rob and steal.

Immigration, to thc South.
Tho Richmond Examiner says:
Considerable interest has recently
been excited respecting the subject of
European emigration to tho South.
Information from foreign sources and
from the North indicates that thc
numerous and important advantages
of soil and climate presented by the
South are having their effect in de?
termining tho course of those con?
templating a chango of residence
with a view to bettering their for?
tunes. Texas appears to bo just
now the favorite destination for emi?
grants. It is stated that, within a
short time past, more than 0,000
foreigners, many of them Scotch
farmers, have left Liverpool for
Texas. Numerous emigration move?
ments, generally embracing small but
valuable accessions to our population,
aro announced as tending toward
various sections of the Spjith.
It is evident that oui interests dic?
tate tho offering of every inducement
that can accelerate au influx of me?
chanics, artisans, laborers and agri?
culturists. Our advantages for pro?
fitable employment of emigrrants are
unrivaled, and our need of skilled
and industrious labor unprecedented.
We must look chiefly to Jhe thrifty,
capable and industrious European
settlers for that agricultural and me?
chanical development which our con?
dition so imperatively demands, and
of which we have such ample assur?
ance in thc extent, fertility and re?
sources of our section. Great mate?
rial triumphs inevitably await thc
South, and though postponed by the
delays and obstacles interposed by
malignant party and sectional feel?
ing, they cannot bo long deferred,
provided we are earnest and energetic
in making known to the world the
incomparable inducements to resi?
dence and business in the South.
THE NATION'S "WARDS."-Tho fol-1
lowing tells a sad story for the guar?
dianship of the "men and brothers"
of the Peninsula, who have been
taken from the horrors of slavery,
and consigned to thc affectionate and

Bureau. Wo fear it will soon be
difficult for others besides vile rebels
to appreciate the vast benefits of the
FORTRESS MONROE, December 14.
An alarming condition cf affairs
exists on thc Peninsula, where 15,000
negroes are huddled together in vil?
lages, without work, and almost des?
titute of thc necessaries of life. The
inhabitants aro in constant dread of
their property being stolen, their
houses burnt and crops destroyed,
and there is not a store between
Yorktown aud Williamsburg that has
not been robbed.
THE TERMTORIALIZERS.-A corres?
pondent of the Baltimore Sun, in a
letter from Washington, gives asan

It is generally claimed by the Re?
publicans that Ashley's resolution to
impeach the President will pass, and
in that event it is said an effort will
be made to prohibit him from exer?
cising the functions of his office,
pending the trial of the charges that
may be preferred against him.

In January, 1784, immediately
after the conclusion of peace with
Great Britain, Congress passed the
"Resolved, unanimously, That it be,
and is hereby, earnestly recommend?
ed to the Legislatures of tho respec?

tution of all the estates, rights and
properties which have been confis?

premises, so as to render the said
laws or acts perfectly consistent not

on tho return of tho blessings of
peace, should universally prevail."
In 1866, we have, from our radicals
of this day, all sorts of wild, crazy

Alas, there are no statesmen in the
Republic-no individual man who
can lift himself np above party and
look to his country. Thero never
before was so great a party as the
Republican party without a single
statesman or a single individual man.
Tho Democrats had their individu?
alities in their Jeffersons, Randolphs,
Clays, &e., and the Federalists in
their Hamiltons and Quincey's, but
the Republicans have no statesman,
no real live man, except Thad. Ste?

a third-rate man in the old Whig
party, among the Clays aud Websters
of his day. There is not a promi?
nent man in the Republican party,
in 1866. that dares lift himself up to
this platform of 1781.

But a few days since we were as?

Haven, Connecticut, that there are
now hanging on the walls of 'Beast'
Butler; at Lowell, two magnificent
pictures-"Christ on the Cross," and
"Mary at the Sepulchre," we think
he stated-painted evidently by some
great master, which are certainly of
$1,000 value each. They were plun?
dered from one of the elegant man?
sions of New Orleans-the mansion
of one of the wealthiest gentlemen of
the South-which Butler confiscated,
and appropriated to headquarters
purposes and as a receptacle of stolen
goods. Our informant was a corres?

pictures were shipped, and saw them
