"WASHINGTON ,EW AND RUMORS
From the various dispatcher to tho associated
press, wo make up tho following summary:
The Li w of I'ardox is being discussed some
what in Congressional circles, and an on ilil prc-
ails that an ossailt is to bo made in Radical
'ongrcssional quarters on that portion of tho
President's message which claims tho power of
restoration on tho ground of tho law of pardon.
fioxno gentlemen of note assort a doubt as to
rhctbcri pardon can soleore a judicial sen
ienco against a party convicted of crime; and it is
gucd that tho President has nono of those
:hts of pardon that are obtained by kingly pcr-
Uvo utidcr the common law.
" A bill having special reference to tho prospec
tive trial of Jefferson Davis has been reported
from tho Senate Committee on the Judiciary. It
provides thai no person thall bp considered in
competent to serve as a juror, by reason of having
funned or expressed on opinion on tho matter to
be submitted to tho jury of which ha may be a
member, from an Investigation founded on public
rumor, statements in tho public journals, or the
common history of tho times. The bill also pro
vides that the final judgments of Circuit Courts of
the United States, and of tho District of Colum
bia, may bo submitted to tho United States Su
preme Court for approval ,or rejection, so far as
' jiucstions of law are concerned, and that the Su
premo Court may render n'final decision, or return
Vtbo case to the Circuit Court to bo tried over again.
f Tho Senate Committco on tho District of Col
ombia, hnvo authorized their Chairman to report
la bill giving the negroes tho right of suffrage in
Itbo District.
The postponement of tho House- bill for negro
suffrage in the District until tho 10th of January,
'nai rceurcd at tho request of Western men, to
rive the Stoto Legislatures, now in sosgin, or to
meet in January, an opportunity for expression
on the subject. It is thought that tnot of the
Western Legislatures will Instruct against the
measure.
The Comir.ittc on Appropriations nro consid
ering tho Miscellaneous Appropriation Dill which
failed last session. Tho Committee aro preparing
anew bill, and nro In conference with tho Secre
tary of tho Treasury in regard to items contained
in the old bill, Tho committee havo got nu econ
omical fit, nd aro cutting down tho estimates at
, aterribloratc. The deficiencies of last year and
the proscnt fiscal year will bo embodied in ono
bill.
j The Committco on the Judiciary of tho Houso
jbavo agreed to report a resolution to provido a

A proposition for the transfer of negroes from

A Senatorial caucus was held on l'Jth after the
I Senate adjourned, fortho purpose of determining
I tho perrons who nro to compose tho six members
Anf the Scnato on the joint Committco on Reeoii-
nrtructlOn. After considerable dclmto it was do
Acitlcd to nlluw tho President of tho Senate to
J! nrrnnge tho Committee. Several suggestions
were submitted as to who ought to bo tho Chair
man, and it was almost uuanimously agreed that
Senator Fesenden was the proper person. The
Committee will bo announced to-morrow morn
ing. j ' Charles A. Dana, formerly of the Net- York
i Tribune, now of tho Chicago Jtrjmllintn, is in
Washington, working for tho New York Collec-
torsuip. His paper is violently opposed to tho
Prer idciit's reconstruction policy, and It is said to
bo pecunlaiily n great failure, and that ho is anx
ious to get out from under tho load. The New
York delegation, Senators nnd Representatives,
have, after frequent conferences, tailed to concen
trate their forces in favor of any particular candi
date fur tho New York CollcclorFhip. It has re
solved Itself into a free fight, the. result of which
will bo that tho President and Secretary McCul
loch will not consult Miy of tho politicians when
bo comes to mako tho appointment.
Mr. Raymond took notes of Steven's recent
speech, and rose to reply, and was fairly entitled
tti tho floor; but Wasbbume, of Illinois, who was
In the clmir, entertained a motion tht tho com
mittee rise, which prevailed, and thus cut Ray
mond off. During Stevens' speech all tho mem
bers of tho lloiiHO gntheicd mound him and lis-
' tened Intently to his remarks. Henry Winter
Davis, (Icncral Logan, nnd n number of Senators
formed a portion of tho group. It was fully re
garded as the grcut Ley-noto Unit sounds the
Radical policy.
The President has approved tho sentence o

master had said that if the negro ever came back
bo would shoot him. Isaac deliberately went'to
his master's Louse, after night, raised the window,
nnd shut him dead with a rifle.
A resolution retting forth tho necessities of
strictly requiring the test oath of lNli, In nil cases
of Federal appointment to office in Southern
States, passed tho House to-day by n largo ma
jority. President Johnson has ordered Gov. lloldcnto
prohibit the Sheriffs of North Carolina from exe

by the Slate Convention, which levies taxes on
business transacted as far back as Jan. 1, lSuVi,
when a large portion of tho Stato was within our
military lines nnd' all business was subjected to

SPEECH OrMR.TIIAIEOl'S STEVENS.
In the IIoiiRC of Ilcprcfecntativcs at Wash
ington, on the 18th inst., the Hon. Thadctis
Stevens, of Pennsylvania, delivered a speech,
in "Committee of the whole on the State of
the Union," which the reader will find in
our columns this morning. It is seldom we
meet with a Congressional effort so pointed,
fb direct, so plain and so full of meaning.
Whilst we sincerely regret that any citizen
of the Union should have felt called upon
to declare the sentiments and principles em
bodied in this parliamentary effort, we are
gratified that one member of Congress, com
bining both intellectual ability and convic
tions of judgment, Liable toapprize the South
ern people, and thepcoplcofthcUnitcd States,
of the views and purposes of that class
known as radicals, in earring forward the
government and dealing with those questions
most vitally affecting the future of a common
country.
Mr. Slovens is a gentleman of mature ex
perience, and beyond tho age usually allot
ted to men. While he disclaims speaking
for or committing others, he represents the
opinions of a very largo and formidable
part of the people of the Northern section of
the United States. It? will be seen, from a
careful reading of his utterances, that he
takes issue with every thing that has been
done by the President and by the lately re
bellious Stiles, towards a fair and complete
restoration of interstate relations under the
constitution, and propounds with great
clearness the views of those, who, to carry
out a fanatical feeling, want now to produce
a practical severance if the Union. The
South is represented as dead, and incapable
of resurrection except by the aid of a higher
jiower. "Tiie.future condition of the con
quered power depends on tho will of the
.conqueror." They must come in to the
Union as new Slates, or remain as con
quered provinces." "To prove that they
arc anil havo been out of the Union, for all
practical purpo-c-i, and aro now conquered
subjects tothe absolute disposal of Congress,"
is an easy task with him. " I know," says
he, "( f no arrangement bo proper for them,
as territorial governments. They can learn
the principles of negro freedom and ca
tho fruit of foul rebellion under such gov
ernments." These arc some of the views of
tho radical representative speaker, on the
subject of constitutional government.
Hut, not content with stating what he re
gards as the proper courso of action which
the President ought to have pursued, in the
equally important and critical cnTcrgeneies
in which he was Providentially called to
exercise his present office, ho assail", both
directly and indirectly, every principle
which that functionary, for the good
of the whole country, !has sought to civ
Kraft upon its lwlicv. Wc cannot on this
occasion enter into the broad field of dis
ctKsion which is thus opened up. Nor can
wc undertake to cxjiomj tho fallacies of the
speaker, in tiien&o, or defend tho amply mag
nanimous policy, first of General Grant and
Sherman on the occasion of tho surrender of
the Confederate armies, and secondly, of
Prexidcut Johnson's subsequent course. Wc
may say, however, that the speech to which
wc are now referring embodies all the prin
ciples, in one idiapc or other, which the
American people will be called upon to de
cide, in the various steps towards a complete
restoration of the Union of our fathers.
It is true, that as a politician, the first
step which Mr. Stevens took in reaching his
iiro-ient position, to tdt, the advocacy of
universal confiscation of property in the
South, was repudiated everywhere alike by
nil parties ; but, still, it is apparent that he
was not greatly discouraged thereby, and is
now only intent tiKn making anew a Gov-
incut that will come fully uptohisstandard.
If he succeed, and the result answers his
exicctations, he will be called great for all
time. If he fails, (of which thcro seems to
be no sort of doubt) in proportion to his
approximation to success will his name bo
accursed bv both black and white.

If it is the purpose of tho President to

31 EXT.
At a recent meeting of the " reconstruc
ted" citiicn8 of Fayette county, Tennessee,
held at Somcrville, the annexed preamble
and resolutions were adopted, as expressive
of their sentiments at that time. They were
drafted and reported by General Jonx L. T.
SxnED, and arc in harmony with the manli
ness, frankness and good sense which have
always characterized his deportment in
public, as well as in private affairs. Wc
regret that they did not reach 113 sooner :
WiiKRrAs: The people of Fayette county, who'
with arms in their lumis have participated on the
part of the Southern States of America in tho
lato war of the sections; anil those who have
sympathized with their Southern brethren in
their vain but magnificent struggle for a separate
nationality, in mass-meeting assembled, desire to
make some public manifestation of tho feelings
with which they meet tho inexorable fortune of
war, and as citizens to declare their intentions' for
the future. They desire peace; a restortion of
civil government and social order : and as far as
may be, a return to the ancient fraternal relations
between the States of tho Union, ss they 'existed
prior to the inauguration of the insane sectional
strifo which begun thirty years ago, and has cul
minatcd in n horrid war, a scourge alike to tho
American people, and a dark blot upon the chron
icles of civilization ; therefore, jfc
lletnked, 1. WJiile we do not ndmfllsMc justice
of the war which has been waged tjffinst us. or
tho disruption of our social fabric as its incident ;
nhd while wo aro not yet so wcll-imbueil with
Christian grace as to kiss the hands which have so
dreadfully smitten us yet wo accept the stern
award not ns a dispensation of constitutional jus
tice, but as a species of martial equity recognized
among the nations, anil to which, as the vanquish
ed party, we are bound to submit with such grace
ai it vouchedsafed unto us;anli c pledge ourselves
to do what wc can to forget the past, to obej" the
laws of tho land, and to erect by our conduct
upon the wreck and desolation around us, ! i new
and we trust a permanent fabric of social and
national prosperity.
Z. Wo recognize in thechanged relations of the
two races in the South u source of infinite trouble
and vexation to both, unltus the Government and
the people co-opcrato at once for its just and
intelligent regulation.
HI. I'or a people unfit for social or civil equal
ity with tho Anitlo-Saxon unprepared for the
freedom for which they had not asked, and which
has been thrust upon them; mindful of their an
cient fidelity as slaves to uj and our fathers from
feneration to generation, we invoke the most
kindly feelings of the white nice, deprecating all
antagonism between them, and will favor all ef
forts for their advancement in intelligence and
virtue, and endeavor to deal humanely and justly
.withthemin thcirsphereas laborers.
IV. We gratefully accept the policy of Andrew
Johnson for a restoration of the Union of the States
as characterized by tho highest stamp of states
manship, patriotism, integrity, and magnanimity,
lie is entitled to the gratitude ofthc wtiolcSouth,
nqd tho cordial co-operation of the real friends of
fraternity and union everywhere.
5. We deeply sympathise with the prisoner.
Jefferson Davis, in his misfortunes and his suffer
ings. If he has been guilty of legal treason
against the Government, as tho representative
man of the Southern movement, then arc we nil
traitors. And as a great and magnanimous gov
ernment has exaitcd itself in the estimation of tho
civilized world, by proclaiming a general amnesty
to the mas.-es, we invoke still another exercise of
the Godlike virtue of forgiveness for him.
0. Recognizing the fact as we do, and as he does, ,
that tlio right of a .State to secede from the Union,
though an open question which has never, under
our theory, been adjudicated by the judicial tri
bunals of the country, has nevertheless been de
finitively nnd foi ever settled by the arbitrament
of t lie sword: but suggesting in his behalf that if
tho opinions which have prompted his conduct be
n national sin, he cbiimsto have sinned in fellow
ship with many of the fathers of the Government
in whose school of polities ho was educated, and
by the lamp ofwho-e counsels he has been guided,
wo respectfully submit that wc can see no good
that can come from tho shedding of his blood ; but
declare our belief that his restoration to liborty
with our great leaders will not fall far short of
working a magical cure to the discaso ofjiliena
tion and estrangement which now afflicts the body
politic.
Itciuiullcnii Corruption tn Xcir York
City.
The New York correspondent ofthc Louis
ville JJcmora, in speaking of the late city
election, says :
" I have it on authority I am not disposed
to dispute, that the Kcpublicans sjicnt two
hundred thousand dollars in their recent
attempt to elect Marshal O. Hoberts Mayor
of this city. Just before the closing of tho
jkiIIs on election day $15, in many cases,
was paid for single votes. ' Jim' Irving, the
notorious pugilist, received $5,000 alone,
the evening previous, to be used among tho
' dangerous classes,' with whom he is a re
cognized leader. The report is, however,
that ' Jim' invested $1,000, and placed the
balance in bank subject to his own order.
That was smart for Jim. It was a point
with tho 'Loyal Lcgabtendcr' aristocracy
to 'carry' New York city, and hitch it,
along with Philadelphia and Boston, to the
car of Illack Republicanism ; they thought
greenbacks alone could do the job, but the
result of the election showed how wretchedly
their corrupt scheme miscarried." .
It is gratifying to know that the cormp
tionistswere defeatedand that Hoffman
Democrat was elected.
Tin: Macon (Ga.) Telegraph has recently
changed hands, Wm. A. Heid & Co., becom
ing the Proprietors. J. li. Sneed, for many
years of the Savannah J'epubh'can, and S.
lloykin, long connected with the press of
Macon, nrc the editors. Under such man
agement the paper cannot fail to tako rank
among the foremost of Southern Journals.
Stkves'S in Congress calls the South a
dead carcass. If he he had taken his gun
and knapsack, he might havo contributed
something to bring about that state of rf-
fairs. Grant says that ho is mistaken in tho
fact, and it may be reasonably supposed these
words will hardly convict Grant of lying.
Pkksident Johnson-, General Grant and
General Sherman, whose hearts for the past
four or five years have lcc:i fixed upon sav
ing the Union, are persuaded that their
object has been obtained. Mr. Stevens and
his coadjutors don't think so. The one fights
the battles, and the other makes the speeches,
That is tho difference.
Tin: Legislature of Mississippi sent a del
egation to Washingtoh to petition the Presi
dent for the pardon of Jeff. Davis. The
Legislature of Tenncvcc proposes to hang
him. Hut a majority of the people of Ten
ncsce, who arc as true to the Government
as arc their legislators, agree with the dele
gation from Mississippi.
JoiiNSOXVii,T.r, Ti'x. A correspondent
of the Chicago 'Times has the following notice
of the abdve named place :
"This place was I mav sav with truth.

than by any other route. Daily
lines of packets are run between this
town and Paducah, Cairo and St. Louis, each
of those three cities vicing with the other for

sectional prejudices ever "more prevent the

VAsnixcToy, December 19, 1SG3.
Congress will adjourn to-morrbw lor some
weeks. What the object of this movement is,
it fs left to conjecture. By some it is thought
that the purpose is, ou the part of the Badi
icals, to prepare for a vigorous assault upon
the President's plan of restoring the Union,
by the time of the meeting in January.
Otheni think that they wish to consult their
constituents and that a majority of them
will come back prepared to sustain the
President's policy. I am inclined to think
that a majority of the present Badicals in
tend to maintain their position and sooner
or later to attack the President and his res
teration policy. I do not think, however,
they will be able to defeat, though they may
delay, the wise measures adopted by Presi
dent Johnson for re-uniting the broken
fragments of a once great country.
There are Bcpublicans in Congress who
will not sustain the wild and disorganizing
bchcmes pf Sumner, Wade and Stevens, and
I hope they will be powerful enough to de
feat some of their plans. I am satisfied that
the radicals, now in Congress, do not repre
sent the true feeling of a majority of the
Northern people, and whenever their plans
arc fully developed, they will be condemned
almost as much at the North as at the South.
Sumner, Wade and Stevens would place the
negro, ignorant and uneducated as he is, up
on a footing of perfect equality with the
white man. Such is the tendency of all the
measures introduced by them into Congress.
The would give the negroes the right to vote
and sit upon juries, and, if this was ac
complished, they would next propose to al
low them to hold Federal and State offices,
to bo Senators and Bepresentativcs in Con
gress and the State Legislatures, and also
to occupy positions on the Supreme and Cir
cuit Court Benches of the Federal and State
Governments. This is the inevitable result
of their doctrines, and such is in fact the
substance of the bills introduced by the
radicals in Congress, when plainly expressed.
Perfect equality before the law means not
only the right to vote, but also to hold office
and to enjoy all the social advantages en
joyed by white people. I am not prepared
to believe that the people of the Northern
States endorse the doctrine of the political
and social equality of the negro or that they
yet havo such "faith in man" as makes
them think there is no difference between a
white man and a negro.
The radicals are using every effort to
destroy the President's policy. They
are fighting at present from behind
masked batteries. Some few of them
such as Stevens in Congress, and Henry Win
ter Davis at home, have the boldness to at
tack him and his policy. Many of them
fight very shy, and whilst they " draw near
with their lips, their hearts arc far from
him."
For the first time in the history of this,
or perhaps any other country, has the Chief
Justice of the highest court in the land, be
came the head of a political party. It is
understood that Judge Chase is guiding and
directing the policy of the Badicals, and his
conduct the other night at the Capital, when
he, Henry Ward Beecher, and a certain ne
gro preacher, officiated together before a
mingled audience of white and black
women, in lovely confusion, goes to sus
tain this view. He wishes to give nractical
demonstration of his negro equality doctrine,
and if he could, by any iossibility, be made
President of the Uuited States perhaps one
of his first acts would be to appoint what ha
calls a colored gentleman, alias a negro, to
bo Chief Justice of the United States, to
show his "faith in man." I do not believe
these men can succeed, nor do I believe tho
enlightened sentiment of the Northern peo
pie will sustain them in their wild revolu
tionary schemes. Thcv resemble more the
men who liad control of affairs in tho davs
of the French Involution, than any that his
tory speaks of. The same thirst for blood,
the same cry for liberty, equality and frater
nity, which were the catch-words of Robes
pierre and Danton, arc those now used by
ouinuer, ,-jievens nnu auc. Xliey arc in
reality the worst enemies, not only of the
white race, but also of the poor negroes them
selves. Thepeoploof theSouth, with but few
exceptions, and all the good and true men of
the North, without regard to former distinc
tions arc anxious to confer upon the negroes
such rights and privileges of person and pro
perty as will secure to them the fruits of their
labor and the protection of their persons.
Every attempt to go farther than this at pre
sent by conferring upon tho negro race ioli-
tical and social power and privileges has a
tendency to injure him, by arraying against
him the prejudices, if they may be so called,
of the laboring white men, who must and
will control this country. If these Badical
fanatics are really friendly to the negroes and
arc not using him merely as si politiuil in
strument for their own advancement, let them
beware how they bring him liolitieally in
conflict with the laboring white men of
the country, both North and South. It is
because I am the earnoit and true
friend of the negro thht I am so
much opposed to the mad schemes of the
men who now scqm to have control of both
branches of Congress. The Legislatures of
Tennessee and Mississippi have failed, as is
the opinion of most all Southern men here,
to give the negroes such privileges as they
ought to have, and which aro necessary to
their protection, and which would not be
injurious to any one. The right of a negro
to testify in court before a white jury who
could and would judge of his ab$ty as a
witness, it seems strange should Iks opposed
by any one Tho right to purchase proer
ty and to testify in courts must and ought
to lc given to the negroes, and the sooner it
is done the better it will bo for all parties.
The right to hold office or to vote stands
upon different grounds. Let the South be
calm and quiet, develop their own resour
ces, repair their mined fortunes by industry,
economy and lalmr. Trust in the President
nnd the good sense of tho Northern people,
and all will yet work for good.
A New Extkki'kise. The proprietors of
the Montgomery, Alabama, Advertiser are de
sirous of engaging the services of a number
of ladies to be taught the business of compo
sition in their printing office. In Boston,
and other cities of the North, this work is
done by ladicx, with efficiency and neatness
equal to that of the best male compositors.
It is work peculiarly fitted to the delicate
fingers of the female, and the remuneration
exceeds that which a woman can cum in al
most any other employment. An indnstri
ous, swift moving comjiositor, can set at a
moderate calculation, six thousand cms per
day, and the price per thousand is sixty
cents. A tuition of two to four weeks dura
tion will enable an intelligent woman to set
enough tyjics to pay hor board, and even-
day's subsequent practice will increase tne
quantity of work she can accomplish. There
is no more honorable employment, and the
proprietors pledgo thcmsclvc to sec that the
strictest order and mutual respect shall be
maintained in their office under this new
system. .

General Grant grows upon U3 in his char
acter of a wise man and conservative states
man. From the moment that lie over
whelmed General Lec with the irrcsistable
force )f numbers, wielded by his indomita
ble will and untiring perseverance, he drop
ped the character of a militarv conqueror
and all Ids utterances have been those of a
patriot and statesman, who saw that the
aword had finished its appointed work, and
the policy of conciliation was the dutv of
the hour. The honorable terms he award
ed to General Lee and his veterans, who
had opposed him with determined and
bloody resistance, struck a chord of sym
pathy in the Southern breast, the intonation
of wliich was in exact proportion to the sin
gular rarity of deeds of generosity up to the
time, from the Federal commanders. Grant
was essentially a "Union General." He
fought jn sincerity andn earnest for the pres
ervation of the " Union" not as a pretext
for ulterior views, not as an' excuse for
slaughter, plunder, confiscation and subjuga
tion, but as a reality. And when the first
step in his object had been accomplished in
dispersing the armies organized to break it
up, he proved his sincerity by acts and ef
forts to bind up the political wounds inlllic
cd by war, and. by immediately dropping
the sword to seize the olivo branch. Ha
has thus shown his want of sympathy with
the radical plan of continuing the war in
time of peace, and of rejecting tho Union
they had fought for.
His conservative tendencies and his love
of justice and truth have been recently man
ifested in the report ho made to the Presi
dent, ofthc condition of things in the South,
whence he had just returned. He declared
the people sincerely and heartily desirous of
restoration, and ,in earnest in their profes
sions and vows of allegiance to the Govern
ment .of the United States. lie told the
truth, also, unpalitablc to the negro worship
pers, tliat the " freedmcn " were for the most
part idle and unwilling to enter into labor
contracts for the coming year. In this he
has performed a valuable service to the
South, for his testimony will outweigh upon
the Northern public mind, the reports of a
thousand such parte witnesses as Carl
Schurz, John Covode and Gen. Banks.
In his late admirable report of the opera
tions of the great armies under his command
he gives another proof of the generosity of
his spirit and the broad nationality of his
feelings, in a graceful passage of tribute to
the gallantry of the South. After doing
justice to the equal bravery of the troops of
the East and the AVest, who had fought un
der his eye, he adds : " Let us hope for
perpetual peace and harmony with that
enemy, Khosc manhood, however mistaken,
drew furth such Herculean deeds of ralor J"
A man of Gen. Grant's stamp is invalu
able to a country in an epoch like this.
Events may take a shape to open to him
even a wider and grander field of patriotic
effort than that in which he has already
earned so distinguished a reputacion. He
may yet have to marshal parties and poli
cies as he has heretofore done battalions and
armies, A Democrat in political faith and
education, and a Conservative in sentiments
and principles, who knows but that he is tho
coming man to rally the hosts of his politi
cal persuasion to the defence of the rights
and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution
of the Union. This high duty of a great
leadership hat to devolve on some strong
patriot.
The Douglas Democrat of 1SC0, tho first
soldier of the United States, after four years
of fiery ordeal, the idol of the army and the
object of high esteem and respect in the
South as well as in the North, where could
the Democratic conservatives of the ratio
find a worthier leader, or the restored United
States a more honest President ? As politi
cal currents are now running, these thoughts
may become prophecies before three short
years roll away.
German Labou. The first installment
of German laborers for the Valley of Vir
ginia arrived in Alexandria on Saturday,
The Gazelle says :
They have been engaged by Colonel John
rairiax, ot .London, who intends tuorou;iilv
to test this, to our people, new species of la
bor. It is said Ins example will soon be fol
lowed by many of the farmers in the Pied
mont District. In the lower counties, where
the new system has been introduced, it is
said that the result is satisfactorv, and
Messrs. Wilmer and Washington, the agents
here for German emigrants, are receiving
frequent orders from the upper and lower
countiess and, as the freedmen have become
unccatain, it is not improbable that white
labor will entirely supplant the negro m
this section of Virginia.
Aiims Foil Home Companiiss. Provis

font's letter to Gen. Wil.-on, accompanied
by an ano'nymous communication entitled
" JJangefs Ahead."
