The Now York Her.titi, of Thurs-;
?lay. sketches out a nico programme
Cor tho new Congress, it presumes
that the reference of Thad. Stevens'
hUt to the Reconstruction Committee
meant nothing moro or less than re?
ferring to the new Congress, which
commences its session on the fourth
of no-xt month. Believing thus, thc
Herald proceeds to lay ont work for
tho new body. Tho first thing to bo
done, of course, is the impeachment
and trial of the President, which it
-expects will Le completed by Iiis con?
viction and removal from office.
"With his arraignment, the Herald
says, ho will probably ba suspended,
and, by a new law passed for the pur?
pose, C?en. Grant may be appointed
to supercede him during his suspen?
sion and after his removal, for the
remnant of. his unexpired term.
Jn the next place, .vitb ii nev?- Con?
gress, a new President of the Senate
will be elected; thc choice will he
made, in thc absence of any new law
ontko subject, as a temporary elec?
tion; and the Herald suggests Fassen?
den, Trumbull or "Wade for the posi?
Af ter having thus got rid of "thc
stumbling-block no w at the head of
the Executive Department," the rati?
fication of the constitutional amend?
ment will have bee n perfected, not
Try all the Stales, but by "three
fourths of the State:; now constituting
thc Government of the United
States.1' The Herald says that only
three States are ladling to complete
the work, and that, then, the duty
will-devolve ?ripon Congress of pro?
claiming the amendment part and
parcel of the Federal Constitution
thc supreme law of the land--bear?
ing alike upon tho inside and outside
States and the Territories.
"'The-oracle then says:
"With this proclamation hy law, it
A-ill become tho duty of the Presi
.dent, under such an enabling Act a.*
Congress may pass, on the basis ol
this amendment, to proceed to th?
reconstruction of the rebel States
and a refusal, in this matter, to exe
cuto the law, will of itself be a suffi
cient cause for impeachment. Thi
:s the right way for Southern recon
struction-it is building on a cousti
tutional foundation that will stund
and it covers all the securities ueedc<
for tho future. The States and peo
pie represented in the Governmen
.ire the Government; the exclude(
States .and people forfeiting thei
rights in the Government, by thei
rebellion, are subject to the will o

in defiance of Congress, clearly bc
