A Soft Wort! TtxrnclU Hway Anger. I
The Rochester (X. Y.) Union, in I
conanienting upon the contemptible
conduct of Gen. Griffin in refusing
to permit the obsequies of tito hi-1
ruentcd Gen. Albert Sidney John- |
ston, in Galveston, gives tlc follow- j
ing tributo to his worth:
"Sidney Jolinston was ?i great sol?
dier-probably tin; ablest tn the old
anny tit the time Ibo rebellion broke
out. He was a Kentuckian, but he
hud endeared himself to the Texans
by resigning his commission in the
United States service, ia 1834, and
entering that of the Republic-hav?
ing been the Adjutant-General and
thc senior Brigadier-General of its
army, subsequently its Secretary of
War, then, before returning to the
regular anny, thc colonel of its first
regiment raised for our war against
Mexico, and lastly, its champion in
thc attempt at secession. The peo?
ple of thc South had the same regard
for him Unit they now have for till
their public men who led them in
support of tlie cause for which he
died. They will always entertain
that feeling, and their children after
them for generations will have it im?
bued in them. Individual treason,
which proceed i from a base motive,
can be made odious; but the collec?
tive treason of compact millions, oc?
cupy g ti vast section of country, ;
with all thc elements of empire in !
and about them, and who simply!
-eek tu assert tho theory of self
government for themselves to be I
fourni in tin' Confederate Constitu?
tion, leaving other similarly situated
people .to govern themselves in their
own way. can never be made odious
never. Those involved in it will
make il respectable in spite of till
human power. The spreading mil?
lions of Southern offspring will never
? admit that their lathers did aught
that should bring the blush to their
check. The li?mes id' the prominent
actors in the rel? ?lion will always be
glorified by them, and the cause that
is lost will ever be held in their esti?
mation as one worthy of tho highest
exertions and greatest sacrifices of a
free and enlightened people. We
arc not accounting for or justifying
facts, but simply stating them that
they may be recognized, and that, in
view ol' them, thoughtful men may
ask themselves whether it is the part
of wisdom to be making the futile
attempt to eradicate' from the hearts
oi lin; Southern people what luis
com?.: to be a part of their very na?
ture, tis the Cen. Griffins io the army
and in civil stations tire doing. Such
attempts serve to drive in rather
than drive out the objectionable sen?
timent, and to perpetuate a feud that
will malic us forever two . peoples.
The South fought for a theory of
government. We did nothing more.
They were beaten--wc triumphed.
They stand 'convinced against their
will,' and ?il! tue laws that can be de?
vised by the ingenuity ol' mau can
exact nothing more from them than
the submission they now yield.
Kindness, conciliation, and respect
for their manhood, can alone change
thc Southern heart anti direct it" af?
fection towards a union which now
has only thc assent of its cold judg?
ment based upon the circumstance ol'

I THE FINALITY.-Weelo hope (hui

i our sectional difficulties:
I am authorized to say that a propo?
sition will bc shorily made, in form,
by the Legislature <>i' North Carolina
and submitted b> Congress, offering
as a finality the adoption of the Con?
stitutional amendment, with the sub?
stitution fur the second and third
sections provisions guaranteeing im?
partial suffrage ?ind representation
according to thc voting population.
I need not add that the proposi?
tion, in my judgment, will bo re?
jected liv the radicals, the purpose
of thc lenders ol' that party being t<>
protract, indefinitely, any settlement.
The signs of tho tiie.es unmistakably
point lo fur more stringent measures
than any yet proposed, and the
means to beemphiyed ?ive bolder I
infinitely more reckless than thc pp >
lie seem willing to believe. "Many
members of Congress who have lind*,

a final adjustment upon some satis

press themselves without hope, and
admit that their calculations, based
upon the ultimate resistance of that
class of Iii publicans who.se? votes
have, on some occasions, been cast
against ultra measures, have turned
out tobe utterly fallacious. No hotter
proof of this eau bc furnished than
the votes in the House upon au
amendment to thc 'Tenurc-of-ofiie e"
bill yesterday. It prohibits the Pre?
sident from removinga Cabinet officer
without the consent, of the Senate.
It was. at first, substantially defeated,
but thc party lash was applied, and.
upon a reconsideration, it was adopt?
ed, and the bill, with it incorporated
as a provision, passed by a strict
party vote. It will go to the Senate,
bc feebly opposed by the more mo?
derate Republicans, who will finally
yield, and, -by the time it comes back
with the President's objections, thc
party will have become a unit, and
thc bill become a law by the vote oj
two-thirds of both Houses.
Under existing circumstances, this
bill is of vital consequence. No mai
doubts that* thc purpose of making
the Cabinet independent is tb tic thc
hands of the President iu view o
his ejection from tin? position he oe

FlNAKCIATj MEASURES IK CONORESS.
; We may judge, from the general tone
; of the commercial press, that some
, changes iu regard to laws relative to ;
the currency and banking organiza- |
: tiens by the present Congress are!
expected. Many of the New York
papers urge the adoption of the sink- !
ing fund und currency hill reported 1
; from thc Committee on banking and
Currone-.. The New York InJepc?d
I <??**, of the 31st ultimo, says:
"The lone of the money marke t is
very-weak still. Mr. Ktrodall's bill
before Congress, for thc substitution ]
of greenbacks for national bank cur- I
rou cy j finds great favor in thc street, :
which fears only its not passing, j
though the probability is thal it will.
It is a measure that will tend to
strengthen the market, and will with?
draw a number of weak banks from :
competition. There is a, dearth of
business tu tho West and South, with !
large over-stocks of goods, which is '
accompanied with a great want of
currency. Thc city banks are con- <
trading their loans; and their stock I

On the other hand, the New York I
Financial Chronicle, of the 2d inst., I
remarks as follows:
Wc believe that, in well informed j
circles at Washington, it is regarded
as certain that no currency legislation j
whatever has the slightest probability !
of passing. This belief has contri- j
huted to recovery from the late panic. \
