THE HERALD'S OPINION.-The New
York Herald, of .Thursday, saj-s:
The European papers seem to be
altogether iu the dark upon the ques?
tion of President Johnson's impeach?
ment. The London Times, in parti?
cular, affects to be grievously dis?
tressed lest the impeachment should
demolish the Constitution and Go?
vernment of the United States. Some
newspapers at home, who ought to
take a more intelligent view of the
subject, talk pretty much in the same
absurd way. Now, the fact of the
matter is, that there will be very little
trouble about it, and it will not turn
the country from tho even tenor of
its way. The President, wc may
assume, will be impeached and re?
moved; General Grant and Admiral
Farragut will probably bo elected,
after a short lapse of time, to thc
offices <>f President and vice-Presi?
dent; Mr. Johnson will soou be for?
gotten, and the affairs of the country
will go on in their accustomed chan?
nels, prospering and to prosper.
The English press foresaw in the
J?te rebellion the downfall of our Go?
vernment and institutions, because,
perhaps, the wish was father to the
thought; and they were greatly as?
tonished to lind that wo put down
the rebellion and preserved the Go?
vernment. Put they v? ill be more
astonished at the result of this im?
peachment business; for it will not
in the least affect or imperil our in?
stitutions. It is a curious and entirely
novel episode in our history, it is true,
though not without precedent in
France and England; butit will come,
go and be forgotten without impeding
the prosperity of thc Country.
COLLATERAL BRANCH.-At last ad?
vices the negro convention, recently
assembled at Washington, had not
been dissolved into its original ele?
ments. It is now said that its ses?
sions will be prolonged, at thc request
of the radical leaders, until after the
impeachment trial, as thc presence
of such a body, while that interesting
drama is being gone through with,
will, it is thought, strengthen the
spinal column of the party, and give
great moral weight to the movement.
Indeed, it has been whispered in con?
fidential circles that Mr. Stevens,
who was recently a candidate for
United States Senator from the great
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, has
in serious contemplation the intro?
duction into the House, at an early
day, of a measure recognizing the
colored convention as a collateral
branch of thc legislative department
of the National Government, and pro?
viding that its existence shall bc co?
equal with that of the Fortieth Con?
gress, which will meet on the 1th ol
March ensuing, and sit, sans inter?
mission, for tlie period of two years.
This, however, may be a "bioodv
copperhead lie," and we tell it simp]}
as 'twas told to us.
PENNSYLVANIA NOT A REPUBLIC. -
Mr. Thad. Stevens, in a speech in tin
House, this week, made an appeal ii
behalf of the State of Pennsylvania
whose Legislature did not elect hin
Senator. Mr. Stevens said: "I deni
that the State of Pennsylvania ii
a iepnblic. * Iwisl
this Congress would take it in bane
and make it a republic." Heretofon
we would have been prepared to bea:
that Mr. Stevens considered Pennsyl
vania the greatest republic on earth
and he cert.duly declared, before tin
late Sonatorialolection,- that its Legis
lature was composed of "pure men.'
Why, then, is an appeal to Congres
necessary to take thc State in hand
It looks as if Mr. Stevens was in tin
same category of politicians of a likt
school with himself in this State
who never discovered any absence o
the republican element in tho Stat
Government until they were out o
office. There is as much sense ii
calling on Congress in the one eas
as the other, and equal probability o
that body attempting sr> high-hande<
and revolutionary a measure with th
one State as the other.

Greneral Gregory, Assistant Commis?

been received by Gen. Howard. Tho
report states that the condition of the
colored people in the State is gene?
rally satisfactory, although difficulties
arc still met with in securing justice
for the freedmen through the civil
courts, owing to tho exclusion by
magistrates of the testimony of co?
lored people. During the quarter,
no abandoned property had been in
possession of the Bureau, nor have
any rations been issued to the freed?
men. There has been a decided im?

letter of the Baltimore Gazelle says:

is also here. It is further known that
Mr. Greeley had au interview with
the President yesterday, and had in?

Tin; market for tobacco has been
very much depressed ever since thc
suspension of sales just prior to
Christmas. There aro many reasons
which have produced this result. In
the first place, the stoppage of tho
factories has lessened the demand for
consumption in manufacturing, and
then tho extreme stringency in the
money market has checked specula?
tion. To these causes may be added
thc uncertainty attending the action
of Congress in relation to the tax; all
parties seem to be standing 'still,
waiting' for some indication as to the
course the market will take, aud in
the meantime thc farmer has to go
without the money which he hoped
to realize from thc sale of his crop,
or sell at a sacrifice.

Government has derived over $175,
