AxDEKW' JoiIXSOX AND THE U.XIOX
Party. The speech of Mr. Doolittle in
the Senate, Tuesday, was a most able
and convincing demonstration of the
fact that Andrew Johnson stands sqnart -j
on the platform of the Union party
as heretofore laid down. We make
the folowing extracts :
Mr. Doolittle said that up to the pres
ent time Andrew Johnson had not
proved false to one single principle of
the platform of the Union party laid
down in 18ti4. The Senator from Mass
achusetts says that ninety-nine out of
a hundred of the Union party are op
posed to the President, lie thought
the Senator was mistaken. Ip thought
that before next fall a majority of the
Union party would be with the Presi
dent, aud perhaps even the Senator from
Massachusetts himself Mr. Wilson.
lie (Mr. D.) had seeu a much stronger
opposition in Congress to Mr. Lincoln
than was now shown toward Mr. John
son. Xeither Mr. Johnson nor Mr. D.
were to be driven from their platform
of Union principles by anybody. Pro
fessed Republicans might leave them
and professed Democrats might come
to them, but that would not drive him
off. lie stood by principle. They had
vanquished the Democratic party with
the rebellion. That party uncondition
ally surrendered at J lie same time that
the rebellion did. That party now ad
mitted that the abolition of slavery was
a blessing, and adopted the same plat-
i form as we (the Union party) adopted
I in 1864. Why could this great party
act so as to secure the truits or tneir vic
tory, they niijcht retain in their hands
the administration of the Government
for a quarter of a century, lie (Mr. D.)
reasserted that the President was th"
most tolerant Executive that he had ev
er known ; too much so, lie thought.
Newspapers from one end of the coun
try to the other, villitied him, and their
editors at the same time were holding
public office. They were now keeping
out loyal aplieants from theSouh; they
are pursuing the exact policy which Mr.
Lincoln said would distract and unhar
nionrze thoii'lfriends in the South. What
riiiiit would they have to appeal to the
South for assistance in case of difficulty
i with Prance or Austria ? This Mexican
' complication will have to be settled and
i ourown differences should be scttlcdfirst
' The Committee on 1'econstruction have
brouiiht in a plan which is not recon
struction, but obstruction. The people
want peace, and are resolved to have it.

besides the Jews, will rejoice that the
Holy Lrn I is to be ma le more accessible
to travellers, and brought into nearer
connection witli the civiliz.'d world.
The Jewish Init-Hbjeaacr says :
Jerusalem, which is generally so quiet
at this season, has been all astir t'ii
week in consequence of an order from
the Porte that all the streets should be
levelled and paved, and that all undue
projections in the same should bo remov
ed. The order has been executed in trui-Turkis-h
syle, and many a tale of loss and
oppression can probably be told by the
poor store-keepers and some In. use
owners ; but the improvement to the
city and the public benefit will be great ;
we shall now have comparatively 1 road
aud airy streets, where before we could
scarcely move. When the work is com
pleted, it will, indeed, prove an advance
in civilized effort, aud quite an as hievc
ment for Turkey. . The Jews are much
concerned about this gathering up of
the stones, and making broad the
streets of Jerusalem. They say, "Now
we are certain that Messiah's coming is
"i'ou have perhaps, heard that there i
a telegraph at J alia which connects
Egypt with Heyront. It is now decid
ed, I believe, that a branch line is to. be
made to this city. I also Hud it is very
probable we shall ere long have a car
riage road to Jalfa, as two engineers,
one English the other Turkish, report
says, are to arrive, here in a few days to
make preperatinns for it. A survey for
a railway has already been completed,
and a plan sixty-live feet long, to lay be
lore the sultan, left here about a month
ago. I do not think, however, that the
time for a railroad iu these pans has yet
Jalfa is now undergoing a similar
change to Jerusalem; a number of coffee
and other unsightly shops outside the
gate on the Jerusalem road are to be
removed and the land sold, with the
condition that it shall be built upon ;
another gate, is also to be made. Our
pasha went three days ago to see that
these important changes and improve
ments are properly done. A better
lan ling-place from the sea was nearly
completed last week, and it is just pos
sible that ere long alight-house may be
built near it. Soon there is to be a
lighthouse on Mt. Carmel and two or
three others, it is said, Avill soon be
placed on the Syrian coast.
We have now two lines of English
steamers touching monthly at Jaffa, in
addition to the usual foreign ones, and
the French will henceforth come cftencr
than formerly; thus Jerusalem and the
Holy Land will necessarily be brought
more than ever into notice. Surely
these, and many like changes which are
taking dace around us, have meaning
in them. I must believe they have.
Coxundijcm. An exchange has this
sentiment emboided in the form of a con
undrum: '.Why will the emblems of .Ame.iea
outlive those of England, France, Ire
land, or Scotland ?
Answer Because the Hose will fade,
the Lity will droop, the Shamrock will
wither, and the Thistle will die, but the
